was Rita Ripstein's and Mamie Ma-
loney's offering of "When the Red, Red
Robin Gomes bob, bob, bobbing."
Then came a period of agonising
thrills over a most mysterious struggle
with scenery hy the Players' Olub. At
the same time all were kept In convulsions by wisecracks from the'gallery,
"Hold her 'Varsity*" "Oh Fireman I
save my child!" "Use your head I"
However, it was finally realised that
"Wells Coates was a great dramatist
who was showing D'Arcy Marsh a
scene from bis new play, "The Pot
Boiler." The main parts were an angel
heroine, Beth McLennan, a villain, a
Jealous vlllalness, and a bricklayers'
strike. The burlesque situations which
followed certainly "rooked with dramatic intensity" and "made shivers
run up the backs of the audience,"
while they howled with laughter. Special congratulations ahould go to Wells
Coates and Betty Somorset.
The stage was quickly cleared for
a ino&t drastic rendering of the Apache
dance by Arts '27.
Then Arts '28 filled the audience
with almost as much mystery as the
"Pot Boiler." Why should a king
chase a Princess round and round a
chair till they panted? However, when
the Prince arrived on the scene, It was
evident his ladylove was at the top
of a tower from which he gallantly
carried her off,
Yet, it any event deserved the praise
of the evening it was the Thoth Club.
They put on a most elaborate and carefully planned Egyptian Ballet. The colouring ot the costumes was lovely and
the dances most effective,—especially
the Impromptu Charleston of joy of the
Priests of Thoth when their constitution Is accepted. Stan Allen, leader ot
the ballet, and Bob Elson, grand
scribe, and Oerry Stevens, as Pharaoh,
sustained their parts with the utmost
dignity. The audience rose enthusiastically to their feet to give a skyrocket
for Norma King when it was explained
that the success was In part due to
her, M also to Victoria RendelL.
Neat, President Kllnck bade the
Oralis welcome and hoped they would
have an enjoyable time. He also
dropped a hint that the bonfire was
aver, which Johnny Oliver corroborated and then called on Jack Grant,
President 1823-24. Tho latter voiced
the feeling of the audience ln saying
ho had enjoyed the evening immensely, and said the encouraging words,
First Debate of
Year With Idaho
Verbal Quarrel la Set For
Tonight
On Thursday evening, November
11th, the flrst International debate for
this year will be held at the King Edward High School Auditorium at 12th
Ave. and Oak street.
This Is the first time in many years
that an International debate has been
scheduled for before Christmas.
It Is a dual affair with the State
University of Idaho. Our home team
will consist ofl^enls Murphy and A. 8.
Whltely; while our travelling debaters
aro William S. Masterson and Douglas
Telford. Theso last two men left
Tuesday night for Moscow, Idaho.
The subject for this debate Is ono
of major Importance today, "Resolved,
that national prohibition will be to the
best Interests of Canada." The boys
have all been working hard and have
aruaosed enough Information and statistics to llll to overflowing the wooden
horse before the gates of Troy.
All of these men are well-known for
their forensic abilities by the upper
years, but for the benefit of tho class
of Arts '30 their past deeds are here
shortly outlined. We will start with
the home team who will support the
affirmative of the above mentioned
question. Denis Murphy is one of the
"famous twins" of Arts '29. In his
freshman year ho was exceedingly active in lnter-class nnd Vancouver Debating League circles and enjoyed the
reputation of never having been on
the losing side. He was on the home
team of the Freshman-Sophomore debate with Victoria College last year,
and as luck would have It, he debated
against Whltely, now his partner ln
crime.

Grads Present
Valedictory Gift
"This Is but the beginning," said
Dr. 0, 0. Sedgewick, honorary president of '26, at the presentation of the
Valedictory gift ln the Library, Monday afternoon. If a graduating class
but a year old brings back such a
treasure, what will the classes of the
future bring?
Six months ago Gordon Telford, on
behalf of the class had promised the
gift. "We are here to-day to make
good our promise," said Mr. John
Grace, permanent president ot Arts
•2d.
The handsome Trophy case was not,
as stated in the programme, from
Arts '26 alone, but from all the graduating classes of '26. The classes of
this year had united in most of their
social activities and they had had the
honor of being.the first classes to
make a presentation during a Home
Coming Week. With this presentation
did not come a sudden severing of the
ties that had bound them so closely
during their Fairview days and lust
year, with the realisation of their
dream at Point Grey. For this reason
the word Valedictory Is not inscribed
onthe case, '26 is not saying farewell
to Its college. As long as the case may
last, and longer, the university spirit
which prevailed among them for the
last four or five years will continue to
connect them very closely indeed with
the U.B.C.
Chancellor McKechnie, on behalf of
the Board of Governors, accepted the
gift. In presenting the Trophy Case,
lie said, '24 had laid a heavy obligation on the shoulders of the undergraduates. The case is large, but this
optimistic class depends on the boys
and girls of the University to keep it
well filled. Dr. McKechnie was sure
that they would do this bo well that
some class of the future will have to
enlarge the case.
The athletic history of the University is praiseworthy, the future looks
promising, "If ever plucky boys were
seen," he said, "It was at the game on
Saturday. They showed immense
spirit." Dr. McKechnie was proud of
the fight the boys put up against a
much heavier team; he Is looking forward sometime to placing a certain
cup In the new Trophy Case.
A final message to '26 wished them
"Much Joy and felicity and every success In life that lies before them."
At the close of this speech, for the
second time In the history of the Library Its walls resounded to the
cheers  of an  enthusiastic  audience.
VARSITY SNOWED UNDER IN

Varsity Holds Them Fairly Wall in Second Half

shows there Is no need to worry about
Varsity spirit."
The last Item was donated hy the
Frosh, who sang "Crasy over Freshettes," gave their yell, and a mouth

Judging by the comments made by
the grads coming out, they thoroughly
appreciated the concert. One oven
wont ho far as to 'say, "You must admit, we never put on such a good display in our day!"

HOME COMING TEA
Even the few, fastidious Freshies
who strolled Into the Cafeteria could
find no fault with the refreshments
provided by the W.U.S. at their Free-
for-all Tea on Monday afternoon.
Miss Bollert, Mrs. Coleman, Mrs.
Kllnch and Dr. Wyman presided, while
Miss Dorothy Brown received the
guests.
From the many hearty hand-chokes
and cheery smiles saen on every side,
one concluded that not a few of the
Alumni had found long-lost friends,
An hour spent In renewing old acquaintanceships, In reminiscing about
Fnlrvlew and ln discussing the materialization ot a drearn passed all too
quickly.
The first Home Coming Week, now
a mark on the page of College history,
drew to a close, The Alumni departed
with regret, but look forward with
anticipation to the re-unlons of future
years.
Defeat, as it must to all teams, came
to Varsity last Saturday at Brookton
Point, It was a rather heavy defeat
at that, the score being 81 to 6 In favor
of Vancouver, But with the defeat
there came no disgrace, on the other
hand no little amount of honor to the
fifteen blue and gold gladiators who
defended the University's "honor."
There Is nothing to say about Varsity, nothing to excuse. The team lost,
but tt played its best. It was well
supported. Vancouver fielded an excellent team, one of the finest perhaps
In recent years, and Varsity perhaps
one of the gamest but weakest. One
cannot mince words. The Varsity was
beaten, fairly, oleanly, decisively,
Qustafson had a chanoe tor fame
when they gave the blue and gold a
forty-yard free kick, but that lad didn't
do so well with the opportunity. It
happened that a 'short time later
Choate, seeing that Mclntyre was on
the other side of the field ventured In
for the second try.
On the kick-off Varsity started a
series ot dribbling rushes and forced
the rep toam to cover the ball behind
its own line. Realizing the value of
this form ot attack with a slippery
Held, Vancouver came back and carried the ball onto the Varsity's for-
bidden area.
Mclnnes threw himself In front of
the rush and on the next play Bertlo
Parrett and Noble carried the ball
some forty yards before Vancouver
checked. Then tho white threes wero
away and Lyle Barr ran over for his
first, which was unconverted. The
score was then 9 to 0,
Shortly after the klckoff, Bill Mahon
broke away for Vancouver, but Douglas Mclntyre again entered the public
eye when he dropped him with a neat
tackle. On a five-yard scrum Leroy,
on a pass from Farmer, made it twelve
to nothing. Then Wilbur Crone mercilessly made it fourteen to nothing.
For an all-too-brW ten minutes in
the opening half the blue and gold met
Vancouver as equals. Varsity held
them off, fought thein back and forced
the white shirts at times to kick frantically to save certain scores.
Then Leroy, who once was a candidate for English international honors,
Kot his hands on the ball and disappeared. There was a scramble and a
frantic chase, but Leroy was sliding
across the turf behind the goal posts.

Vancouver had made the first score.

shortly. But then came tha toughest

for a try. It had all the earmarks of
a home-run. The score Was then ft

After this Varsity came back again
and Esterbrook went on a forty-five
yard rampage and scored a try, muoh
to the belated delight of the spectators. Mclntyre again filled the bide
and gold heads with delight when hi
repeated the process. The score noW
stood 28 to 6.
Varsity pulled an interference play
on its own line and Vancouver was
awarded a try. It was another tough
break.
Then Bill Mahon, who is, by the
way, a brother of our own Harold Mahon, slipped over for the last try of
the day. Crone converted. The whistle
blew and the game was over.
There Is nothing more to relate. Tbe
«nmo Is over, Varsity haa yet a
chance for the championship. A thin
one, It is true, but a chance. Let us
pray.

Rugby President
Applauds Students
Seeing that I so confidently urged
everybody to attend last Saturday's
game, I confess to a feeling of virtuous
self-justification at the general results
of that occasion, and I ask the Ubys-
sey'o permission to say so. If there Is
any member of U.B.C. who did not feel
repaid for going to Brockton Point, he
must be very, very hard to please. For
myself, I came away from the game
with a feeling of something like exaltation : It was very good, I felt, to bo
a member of this collegiate community, like Saul of Tarsus, wo are citizens
ot no mean city.
The student body Is to be congratulated, to say the least, on its turnout
and its behaviour last Saturday. The
Freshmen were just what they ought
to be—good-humored, good-looking,
and above all, fresh. The cheering
was the best I ever heard—clonr,
hearty, simple, well-timed, not too
much of it: the cheer-leader certainly
knows his business. The generous and
unforced appreciation accorded to our
opponents made a friend feel good and
made a good many foes feel friendly.
The students did Just what my burst
oi Inspired prophecy said they might
do; they obviously had a good time,
they exhibited themselves with most

successful effect, and they really
helped the team. Surely they can and
will do the same things next MoKeohnle Cup game.
As for the team—what can one say?
Of course, they were outclassed. The
winners form one of the most powerful teams that Vancouver has produced, and they played superb football.
Tho best thing about the game, however, was not their well-deserved and
decisive victory, but the really extra
ordinary spirit of the losers. We all
like to win, but It Is certainly far more
tonic for us all to see men fighting
determinedly and unrelentingly for a
quite hopeless cause. No member of
U.B.C. was ever prouder of its team,
even on a day of victory: those six
points may not represent the highest
level of Varsity's play, but they do
mark the high tide ot her spirit.

LEST WE FORGET 1
Now that all the festivities are over nnd the student body has
settled down to routine once more, it may seem somewhat of an antl-
olltnax to remind them now of Armistice Day. Tet there is certainly
A remarkable apathy prevalent in regard to thia matter. Of course,
It la,very easy to fait into sentimentality,on this subject. We are not
attempting to prod the flagging patriotism of the students, or to
encourage chauvinism in any way.
The fact remains, however, that they are allowing this day to
lUde by without remembering that it concluded one of the most awful
tragedies of history, that it stands for infinite suffering, untold sacri-
fiee. It commemorates a wanton and brutal slaughter which stopped
at no cruelty, no outrage, Yet now,—a bare eight years after—this
day slips by almost unnoticed, as if the world war had been relegated
to the realms of legend or story. We are forgetting the appaling ease
with whioh tbe world slipped into this titanic struggle. Surely it is
evident that unless we keep the horror and the bloodshed of this war
before us, unless we force ourselves to remember its slaughter, we will
have lost one of the greatest forces to prevent the recurrence of the
lame carnage. Let ua remember our dead, not as the "glorious dead"
of war-time aentimont, but aa the helpless victims of organized murder; let ua remember war, not to glorify or applaud it, but to let its
memory imprint on our very souls a horror.
A WORD ON DEBATES
Tonight the University of Idaho and the University of British
Columbia meet in the first inter-collegiate debate of the season—and
it is to be hoped that students retain their sense of porportion between the intellectual and the physical sufficiently well to enable
them to support the debating team one-half as strongly as they supported the Rugby team last week-end. From past experience, we
know that debate audiences nre never large, rarely enthusiastic—but,
once In a while, they fall victim to surprise and, taken off their guard
of indifference, realise that they are listening to skilful argument.
It is not as well-known as it ahould bo that there is as much pleasure
in hearing a neat rebuttal as in seeing- an effective flying tackle. We
dislike to have too much reference to the past,—for he who lives in
the past is dead in tho present,—but we can remember when "standing room only" was the rule at our intcr-cnllegtnte debates. There is
no reason why tho rule should not still hold good.
RENAISSANCE
For the past two months there ha:i
been a depressing spirit of pessimism
about the University because of the
lack of college feeling displayed by
the majority of the students. Appeals
for enthusiasm were made on every
possible occasion; pep meetings were
held, editorials were written—every
conceivable effort was made to rouse
that harassed being, the student body,
from his slumbers. But apparently
all attempts were futile. The University was a sick man, and little
hope was held for his recovery. But
finally a desperate attempt to save
his life was made by Home-coming
Week. The onlookers stood with
bated breath as the diseased man
struggled with his affliction. He rallied once more, and at last conquered
his trouble, to emerge a new being,
strong, rejoicing in his victory.
The effect of Home-coming Week on
the spirit of the students has, In Its
Immediate results, been tremendous.
The splendid way in whioh students
of the University turned out to the
various functions, and the enthusiastic
spirit which was displayed on every
occasion are surely definite proofs
that the old feeling of student pride
In I'nhi'islty activities has not van-
Mud Home coming Week has provided a stimulus which has, so far,
liicii Invigorating. It Is hoped that
the lliiiil re-action will be no less
mat Hying.
Honie-Comlng Week has served another purpose, which no other celebration could have achieved. It has
established a bond between the past
and Ihe present, bringing with it the
realisation that there Is no real division between students ot several
yours ago and students of the University to-day. The traditions and
ideals of the University have been the
same Klnce tt was first established.
Their introduction was the work of
the alumni; their maintenance Is the
work of the undergraduates.
It may be that we are too optimistic, but we believe that a long step
lias been taken which promises excellent results. It remains only for the
"Indents to continue to give the support which they gave during the last
week-end; to foster the spirit which
Initiated that support, and to display
It In all branches of the University
activities.

Editor, "Ubyssey."
Dear Sir:
May I take a little of your valuable
space to say what I think of the
Freshman Class or 1980?
Home-coming ia over—a success if
I may say so. The Theatre Night was
a genuine entertainment j there waa
the biggest student turnout at the
rugby and basketball games that has
been seen for some years.
On Monday afternoon there was a
fine turnout of grads and of the
public. But where were the Freshman guides on Monday? I myself
saw eight of thotn, four of whom wore
tholr ties. I believe there are between 300 and 260 freshmen this year;
where were they?
In closing I would ask It there be
any member of the Freshman Class
who oan explain and Justify this conduct on tho part of Arts 'SO; if there
be such, 1 would like to hear the defense through this column.
Slnoerely yours,
Xll   v        A JUNIOR.
Sadte Boyle/Writes Heme
ThVfeflt~tfrft Sadie was so popular
at U.B.CT Is sufficient reason to print
In these columns an extract from a
recent letter home; and to he confident that It will prove Interesting to
those with whom she was recently
associated.   The extract follows:
"As to what we have seen—not
everything by any means—only several old churches—La Saints Chapelle,
built by Louis IX. and eodtalnlnff some
ot the most wonderful stained glass
windows in the world—Notre Dame de
Paris, where we attended a special
service In honour of the 700th anniversary of St. Francois d'Asslssl-
I'Bgllse de St. Btlenne du Mont with
a wonderful winding marble staircase
—the old, yety old Bgllse de St. Germain du Pres, and several others, Impossible to give all my Impressions.
Then we ascended to the very top of
the Eiffel Tower In a queer sort of
elevator thing which we wished for
fervently the other day when we tolled
up flights and flights of dark winding
stairs to the dome ot the Pantheon
Naturally we have seen the Are de
Triomphe and the Unknown Soldier's
grave (at the head ot whioh a flame
burns continually), and walked down
the Avenue des Champs Blysoes to
the Place de la Concorde. We haven't
been to the Louvre yet, but have more
or less gone through the Luxembourg
Museum (quite close to here and surrounded by wonderful gardens which
really belong to the Palais de Luxembourg), exhibiting modern paintings,
sculpture, etc., aud the Cluny Museum,
once an old abbey and adjoining the
ruins of old Roman baths supposedly
belonging to the Palais de Thermos
built by Hadrian. Cluny is the prettiest old place you ever saw and is full
of old things—shoss, carriages, paintings, sculpture, jewel chests, porcelain,
implements of war, etc. We are going
again several times to see everything.
As to theatres—the first place we
went was Le Cinema Madeleine to see
"La Veuve Joyeuae." Terrible, Isn't
It, but wo longed to see something
American, and Dorothy hadn't been to
a movie since April. Needless to say
there were no cuts aa at Vancouver,
and wo simply gloried in the whole
thing, especially the music which was
exceptionally good.
To tho Odeoh we have been twlce-
to aeo the "Marriage de Figaro" nnd
"Le Hourgols Gentllhomme." Tho tut
ter was a scream, but to our astonish
merit they cut the last act merely because the band numbers at the begin
nlng had taken up time and the
theatre had to be closed at 11:46. Bui
Sunday we are going to the Opera to
hear Faust.
Speaking of the Opera reminds me
ot the Place de l'Opera, one of tuo
busiest squares In town, where all
sorts of streets meet, causing the most
lovely traffic Jams you ever Baw. After
New York I was prepared for anything, but here it is worse, for taxis-
eternal taxis—and busses come from
all directions. There Is a general rule
of the road, but the regulations aren't
nearly as good as In America—perhaps it is impossible with streets Intersecting at all angles. However, what
Ihe gendarmes lack In efficiency they
make up for tn plcturesqueness.
So much for traffic jams—they are
everywhere—and one must get used to
going through the "jaws of hell' many
times every day.
Hut tho boulevards and cafes out on
the street where one drinks wine and
coffee, nre the most fascinating thlngu
In the world—also the Rue de Rtvolt,
bordered by arches and lined with tho
most alluring shops for trinkets and
such like. The big stores are always
Jumined and the bargain counters are
always out on tho sidewalk. Then Inside the stores are gilded—oh, so
glided and ornate, with winding stalr-
ritaos and fancy signs. Instead of
floors they have galleries running
right around the store so that, from
the ground, you can see the coloured
glass dome.    In a large store throe
small elevators are considered sufficient. Madame Guemy says that elevators, telephones and bathrooms are a
luxury tn Paris, and I believe her.
The Seine, ot course, is simply marvelous, especially at night when all the
lights from the numerous bridges are
reflected 4n Its surface. I adore walking along the quels, peering Into the
boxes of the old booksellers—also poking around old winding streets. Everything Is so different—so old—no flashy
Americanisms. And such a number
of old women selling things and beg-
5 art, and pseudo-artists with largo
lack hats, neck-cloths and side-burns,
and students with close-fltting black
caps, and Impertinent young Frenchmen who bid you "hon soir." This, of
course, lu our quarter—the Latin
Quarter—and therefore most fasolnat-
Ing of all.
But 1 rave too much about these
French customs—perhaps because 1

From the foregoing, it Is fairly evident that Sadie Is finding Paris a whirl
ot pleasure! though in another part ot
the letter she makes reference to the
demands of study upon her time. Best

THOTH CLUB
The success of tho Thoth Club last
Friday night must have been a distinct
surprise to the student body, and certainly to a particular section of it.
That It takes itself seriously haa beet,
amply demonstrated, and that It
merits serious consideration from the
rest ot the atudenta ought hy now to
be obvious.
The very originality of the name
aud Ideals of this club proved almost
too much for the great gravity of the
majority of students. That anyone
could, In all seriousness, bring forth
an idea of such freshness and genuine
humour In a company as sedate and
sleepy as ours was really uot to he
thought of. Surely everything had
been thought of long ago by our illustrious ttredeoeesorsj It was left
for us only to follow in their footsteps.
However, the Thoth Club has be-
oome a vigorous reality, after its
somewhat unusual feat the other night
It promises lo be ono of the most
"alive" organisations la college. At
least It has one virtue—It has not yet
degenerated (o the rank and flic of
musty, presumedly sophisticated, so-
called literary clubs In Varsity. It is
Mill! In Its formative state, aud If It
adherns to Its ideals there will be no
bounds to Its effectiveness In leavening the mass.
Students, we're) here
to serve you I

A Comparison
Ot the two dramatic performances
which, during the past ten days, have
taken place at the "Orpheum," there
can be no doubt as to which, from an
artistic point of view, was the more
successful. That two actors of such
repute as Arllss and Matheson Lang
hftv« visited the coast within so short
a time of each other, is extremely fortunate ; it affords an opportunity—only
too rare In Vancouver—of comparing
the two men at a time when the memory of both productions is still clear
tn the mind.
In one respect this comparison is
greatly facilitated—that both actors
were handicapped by plays which,
though no doubt giving the leading
character unusual scope, must, when
judged on their Intrinsic merit, be condemned without hesitation as third
rate, Although the legend upon which
Temple Thurston's play is based has
always made a strong appeal to popular imagination, and although "The
Wandering Jew" does contain a series
of highly dramatic situations, as a
whole, the play falls to convince. The
reason for this Is no doubt partially
the Intermittently feeble dialogue, and
the horribly artificial means of gaining
effect. (To appreciate this, one has
only to recall the peals of thunder
wbioh coincide with the climax of
Matathias' soliloquy in the flrst act;
and again—though possibly the author
is not at • fault here—that horror of
horrrors, the Incidental music.) However, to my mind the greatest flaw 1b
the manner In which Temple Thurston has worked out his theme. Surely,
if any continuity is to be given to the
play at all, the author must show in
the various stages through which Matathias passes a gradual but consistent
change in his personality, the growth
of a Christian spirit within him. Instead, one finds him ln the first phase
vicious but, towards the end, deeply
stirred by the curse of the Nazurene;
tn the second phase, unrepentant and
licentious, until hy the opportune arrival of a leper, he is reminded of his
own degradation; in the third stage,
still bitterly opposed to the Christ who
Is always foiling htm. Only in the last
phase is there any definite change;
and here, with very little previous
warning, he apears as u mau ot unequalled gentleness and wisdom, rich
with the culture of the ages—one to
whom the variety of the pageant he
has seen Is wholly apparent. The steps
In this transformation ere not clearly
ueflned. "Old English," on the other
hand, must be considered as third rate
because by Its very nature It could
never rise above that position. Yet,
when one considers the story upon
which it is based, ono cannot help a
feeling ot surprise that It has heen
dramatised at all. And when one finds
so stringent an adherence to the details of ihe story—an adherence which,
If the same effect is to be gained, is
absolutely necessary—one's admiration Ih greatly Intensified. "The Stoic"
is an essentially dramatic story; more,
it fairly cries out for dramatisallon.
Then, iiiif might well ask, wherein lies
the dllllculty? it lies In Ihe lust act -
ai a point upon which, though the external action has virtually ended, the
success of the whole piece depends.
Old Heylhrop is alone upon tho stage;
Charles Veninor has departed with a
knowledge of the old man's guilt; and
with him bus gone Hcythrop's last
hope of Independence. There Is nothing left to do; It but remains for htm
to make a Ulgntlled exit in the "three
bottle'1 manner of the "great age."
And here Galsworthy ends and Arllsa
remains alone.
So much for the plays themselves,
Tho fundamental difference between
the two productions was one of stage
management. One found ln the case
of Matheson Lang an appalling neglect
of detail, tn the case of Ooorge Arllss
an unusual attention to the minutest
of stage matters. To appreciate this
one has only to compare the crudity
of lighting effects In "Tho Wandering
Jew," the "acting'' of all the supporting cast, the flatten of the last scene
with (he entirely adequate support In
"Old Kngllsh," Ihe eveness in lone of
the whole performance
Ah regards the two chief actors,
comparison Is a little more dllllcult.
Malhesou l.iuiK was playing a pari
which to a certain extent was bound
lo be declamatory; ArlUn' part was
entirely u Intruder study. The main
difference, I Imagine, Is one of restraint , The big scene lu "Thu Wandering Jew'' where the quality of Mr.
Lang's voice was used very effectively
lost much of its strength because of
ihe unrestrained exertion which bad
preceded It. The success of the last
throe scenes of "Old Kngllsh," on the
oilier hand, Is a tribute to the art of
Mr. Arllss During the last, act ho Is
forced to "walk the tightrope"; u
single false note aud Old lleythrop's
last hours on earth would have appeared either bestial, or else merely
ludicrous. —D.O.M.
Storm Bound
A Tale of the B. C. Coast
The halibut schooner left Rupert
early In December and spent the first
ten days lying at anchor in a little
landlocked harbor, waiting for a spell
of good weather, a rare occurrence ln
Northern British Columbia at that
time of the year. Outside a grim
southeaster tore down Hecate Straits,
lashing the white horses of the sea
until they reared themselves high for
the last. time, and crashed on the
rocky shore. For ten days and nights
they lay at anchor, swinging slowly
on the chain, while the wind walled
overhead. Between squalls of driving rain the blown spume drifted ln
rrom the narrow neck of land that
sheltered them from the sea. All day
and night they could hear the baffled
seas roaring close to them, lashing
with hissing tongues at the protecting
rocks.
Ten days is a long time to lie at
anchor. Nothing to do but eat and
smoke and tell sailors' yarns. In the
long evenings they dealt greasy cards
across the foc's'le table, the ship's
lamp sputtering fitfully overhead, the
air heavy with tobacco smoke and the
reek of men. Some of them lay In
their bunks, reading any old magazine that could be found, When the
light was out and everyone had quit
talking they could hear the soft lap-
'up of beseeching little waves that
slapped against the bow, mixed with
the slow snores of sleepers, the clanking of the anchor chain, and the endless, weary cry of the wind.
The close confinement bogan to tell
on them nnd they quarreled greatly
over little things, that would have
ordinarily passed unnoticed. Swede
Charley   was   the   most   irritable   of
I hem all; he was a "damn crank" as
the rest of them tacitly agreed. He
kicked about tho boat and the skipper
and the crew but most of all he
kicked about tho grub. Little Jimmy,
the Cockney cook, was used to kicking. He was small and wizened and
bltter-tongued, not one to take sharp
words in silence. So day by day
these two carried on Incessant strife,
looking sideways with venomous eyes
at each other; each hating the life the
other had.
One night, the night when the wind
dropped, though they didn't know it
then, the whole crew was seated
around the table; Jimmy wns handing
out the last "mug-up" before they all
turned In. By no accidental oversight
he poured out. Swede Charley's coffee
last nnd there wasn't half enough to
fill the big white mug.
The Swede looked at Jimmy—you
could feel a tenseness In the air, as
if there was a crisis impending.
"Ay vant some coffee. Ay want it
flirty damn quick."
He held the mug towards Jimmy.
The lltlb' man's eyes wen- headed and
'•Mlteilru' like those of a snake.
"Alike It yerself Ihen, villi bleedln'
-Vandina\ Ian'" answered Hie cook.
He called Un- big fisherman unprintable n;iiiK-s, oaths long ago .spewed up
from the sprawling gutters of cities,
from tlio blotched minds of men like
beasts.
The Swede made a lunge for
Jimmy's throat, the cook dodged back
and threw the coffee-pot at htrn. After
that one hardly knew what happened;
II was all a confused mass of struggling men and then a crash against
the hot stove, and someone shouted
Cod! you've killed him!"
They cleared away and were still.
The Cockney had fallen beside the
stove, his head rolled to one side ln a
queer fashion. There was a horrible
'tench of burning hair ln the air, and
something more, the smell of blood.
The big Swede was dazed; he stood
there n§ uncomprehending as a child,
wondering at what he had done,
There was no more sleep in the
foc's'le (bat night. They thought of
Hminy lying out on the deck, looking
with sightless eyes at the black sky,
and the Swede tied up In the hold,
null Ing with brute stoicism, hardly
knowing his crime or realizing tho
penally I bat must be paid.
In the morning the wind changod
nnd tiny slipped out of harbor In tho
winy half -light of dawn, heading back
10 porl, ihe dying seas racing madly
'"'bind the stern.

Muckatorial
It has come to the knowledge of
the Feature Staff that certain members of the Student Body are adverse-
ly criticising the last two or three
Issues of the "Muck-n-Muck" page.
This criticism has been exceedingly
Indirect, making it very difficult for
the Feature Editor to reply directly
to his self appointed Judges. He admits without the slightest reservation
that the "Muck-a-Muck" in the last
Issue or two may have been downright rotten, if Judged by the highest
standards of humor, but considers
that a few words of explanation are
obviously In order.
In the first place, the Feature Editor has been extremely busy, during
the last week or so, on such trifling
activities as a combined honor course,
Home-Comlng Night, and launching
the Students' Parliament. For these
reasons, he was called away from his
main object in life, and has been
unable to contribute more than one
or two hundred words to an issue-
instead of the columns and columns
of sparkling humor (?) that are expected of a feature editor. Furthermore he has had to accept and publish one or two contributions that
otherwise might have been refused.
One of the features that were crltis-
lssed was the series of "Thoth
Themes." The standard of competitive essays for admission to this
Honorary Journolletlo Society may
have been low, but it must be admitted that these attempts reveal the
general level of humorous journalism
in the student body at large. This
same student body has beon "Muck-
a-Muok's" severest orltlo.
The censure lies not on the Feature
Staff but on the literary ability of
the students of this University.
The "Muck-n-Muek" page has aimed
at the development of humorous
writing In THIS University, and is
condemned for the results. It is to be
remembered that this Is one of the
few college papers on this continent
that devotes a whole page to original
comic matter twice a week!
Ample time has been given to develop feature writers—If they had existed at all. At present there are
about fivo writers ln this University
of 1500 students who can be depended
upon to submit acceptable features.
Great credit should b« given to the
assistant feature editors, who have
kept this page, the "Litany Coroner" in
particular, from being an absolute
failure.
Tho Feature Editor will try to paetfy
those critics, who are howling for his
blood, by writing more Muck-a-Muck
himself—(as he did before his lapse).
He will continue "Kampus Krax"
and "How It Started," and will shortly commence a serial called "College
Daze." In addition he will ruthlessly
suppress contributions thnt are not
up to a high standard. The space
left over may have to be filled with
Jokes from "College Humor" etc., but
this will be undoubtedly appreciated
hy any member of the U. D. C. who
likes .second-hand  humor.
One tiling Is certain; there will be
no plagiarism or adaption from other
papers (as wns practised In previous
years)   without   acknowledgment.    The
student   will always :■   how  his own
college .stands in the matter of feature
writing.
Finally, as said before, there are
two proper ways of criticising this
page: (1) See the Feature Editor personally or (2) Write a letter giving
a candid opinion of this page, and
what improvements could be made.
German Club Formed
Those students who aro Interested
In the German language, customs and
songs have hailed with delight the formation of "Uer deutsche Verein" application for which club has been formally made to the A.M.S. The result
of the election of officers Is; 1st honorary president, Dr. Mclnnls; 2nd honorary president, Miss Battle; president Heat tie MacLean; vice-president,
Alfreds Thompson; secretary-treasurer, Ruth Sugarman. A meeting of this
society was held on Monday, the 1st
ol November, at the University. Mys-
le-lous Anekdnten were related with
ponderous gutters) gusto and were
followed by a no less loquacious lingo
In a Spiel known as "Ich packed
nieino Schwenters Koffer." After completing arrangements for procuring a
hook of German college and folk
songs the meeting adjourned.

Class and Club Notes
ARTS' 27 DANCE
Swaying couples, enchanting decorations, wonderful music—such was the
setting on Tuesday evening, November 2, when Arts '27 entertained at
its flrst class party of the year. Never
has the Winter Garden presented a
more alluring picture than that presented on this oocaslon. Hallowe'en
lanterns and streamers lent color to
the scene, while one must not forget
the skeletons (not living ones), draped so becomingly along the walls. The
muslo was such as would satisfy thi
most exacting soul, making the dances
seem all too short. Two very popular and most obliging ghosts distributed novelties In a very realistic manner. Owing to the shortness ot the
time and the large number of dances,
it was decided In the emergency to
serve supper after 12 o'clock—and
what a supper! Served at daintily
decorated tables, the refreshments
vanished, were replenished, vanished
again. The sandwiches alone were of
a quality that would put the Aggie
dance to shame. Alas! all good
things must come to an end, and the
time for wending the homeward way
came all too soon.
Miss Bollert and Dr. Sedgewick, the
honorary president, very graciously
acted as patroness and patron for the
party.
WOMEN'S SWIMMING
CLUB
It has been deolded by the executive and coach that an inter-class
meet will be held before Christmas
this year, so that the material for the
victoria team may be chosen later

director, Is frantically Interviewing
dressmakers and discussing the correct apparel for British grenadiers
and wee Scotch laddies, The Oriental
garments In the Miracle Play vflll be
exceptionally picturesque, while the
rather brief outfits ln the Southern

PERSISTENCY
What is the most valuable characteristic of a successful athlete? What
quality will bring success provided
all others fall? Persistency or ln
plain raw English it Is nothing more
than "guts." Intensity of application
may explain it. more minutely but
there is nothing better than sport
slang to get expression.
Many a man will turn out for a team
for season after season and yet never
make a place. Many a man haa turned out for a track team or a swimming squad and always missed the
first team rankings because there was
somebody a little bit better. This
may apply to you.
This tragedy In sport probably
shows up a little more plainly in
American colleges where the Intensive training programme eliminates
the weaker candidates or those who
possess no natural ability. The latter are under the handicap of building up both ability and competitive
strength at tfieTsame time and often
thoy fail under the strain.
The story of Nelson Sherrill of Pennsylvania University is one of the
best in the history of sport to illustrate this point. Sherrill turned out
for track at Penn. Long, gangling,
awkward as he was he had fiery ambitions to be a pole vaulter and hurdler. The rest of the Freshman squad
gave this sloppy looking son ot the
Vermont hills the oold and stony
glare. Many of thorn were all state
and a few Inter-soholastlo champions.
Sherrill said afterwards that he
never came nearer to crying ln his
life he felt so out of place.
Lawson Robertson head coach of
the 1924 U. S. Olympic team was
coach of the Penn. team. He realised
Immediately that Sherrill had the ambition of a champion but he lacked
physique and moreover he had not
the high school background of all the
men of the team.
After the practice Robertson went
over to Sherrill and said, "Say sonny
you needn't come out for track this
year again. Report to the Gym Instructor every day this term and do
the setting up exercises I will give
you, Next year you can come out and
I will do' the best I can to make a
track star out of you.
What a year that was for Sherrill.
He almost, gave up a hundred times
had not Robertson occasionally enquired how he was getting on.
Spring name again and you would
never have known Sherrill, he was
taller and built like a Trojan.
That year under Robertson ho did
12 feet ln the vault and ran the high
sticks In 15-3/6 seconds. In his Junior
year he was a consistent conference
winner around 12 feet 6 inches.
It was not until his senior year that
he blossomed forth as the Sherrill
that will go down In tho record books.
That year he set up a new worlds
indoor record for the pole vault, leaping 13 feet 1 Inch.
He won the I C A A meet the following spring with a leap of 13 feet
3 Inches.
Can you equal this In the history
of sport ?
Kqually Is the history of John Paul
Jones, who started his running us a
.-ripple with a paralyzed leg, The
llrst year at college he turned out and
ditl nothing but jogging. The next
season his leg got stronger and he
ran in races, but failed to place. In
hla third year he placed third and
fourth In the mile In good time. In
his senior year ho came out and won
all of his races and reached his
crowning glory when he set up a new
world's mile mark at Cambridge,
Mass., ln 1912 with a mark of 4 minutes 12-2/5 seconds.

A flock of good-looking Grads and
otherwise, handed over 36 cents in
cold cash to a cute little girl (I forget
her name), (or the privilege of giving
their interpretation of the effect on
their systems of "Barcelona," "Where'd
You Get Those Byes," and a pile of
other mouth organ ditties.
All this took place in two short
hours at the Rowing Club on Saturday
afternoon, after Varsity sat down aud
cooled their heels on the very short
end of a nifty rugby game.
Nobody seemed to feel down-hearted
over this sudden reversal of scoring
honors, or if thoy did thoy kept it up
tholr sleeves until they got Inside their
own little bedroom and had a good
bavl.
The eats were all you could expect
for thirty-five cents and many a thrifty
freshman didn't have to eat any supper because nobody counted how many
sandwiches you ate, pocketed or swallowed whole.
The coffee or tea or whatever they
gave you wns as good as you ever get
at one of these stand and grab 'em
affairs.
Somebody must have thought tho
decorations went in with the thirty-
live cents, because the committee put
over a dirty crack about souvenir collectors walking off with borrowed
roses.
After this lit.tlo address a lot of
spoons, knives, forks and cups turned
up where they belonged.
After everybody had bumped everybody else at least twenty-seven times,
and the orchestra were calling for
water, the show was all over. One can
understand tho thrill a 98-cent day
would give you after such a wrestling
match,
Hoop Hop is a Hot
Whiz Bang
After eight youngsters from this
neck of the woods had spanked their
grads and told them their degrees
weren't worth tho paper they were
written on as far as basketball went,
some Freohman with more muscle
than a matador heaved a piano Into
the corner of tho room and the grappling match was on,
Around this old music box four boys,
who get lc tor every breath they take
that makeB mieilc, started to coin
money.
In the meantime everybody tears
around for pencil and paper to keep
track of the blue-eyed Susie who will
do her best to keep off your new two-
slx-blt shoes to the tune of HI Diddle
Diddle or some other syncopation.
Everything went fine until the fourth
round when somebody said you could
hit In the clinches. That moans that
any cro3s-eyed Johnnie can come up
slap you on the back and leave you
standing In the middle of the floor as
lonely as a Siberian war orphan, while
he escorts the fair maid through the
war,
You can't get mad, it just isn't done,
but you wish those mama's boys who
go unattached would take tho four-bits
they paid to got in and buy a bottle of
over-proof arsenic and have a real nice
evening.
Well, the band only got paid to play
until midnight, and since you can't
dance without music, everybody
grabbed somebody else's hat and coat
and went home.
WOMEN'S ATHLETICS
Should the physical development of
tho woman student be of less Importance than that of the man? That Buch
Is the case would appear to oe the
opinion of the authorities of the University of Toronto, ln view of the extreme and undoubted inadequacy of
the gymnastic facilities provided for
the women undergraduates. One undersized, trackless gymnasium, plus a
forty-five foot swimming pool, Is their
portion; and yet It Is expected to produce athletes who will worthily represent the University In all lines of
women's sport. The following case
will serve to illustrate the difficulties
which aro encountered: University
College women, lu search of a baseball gymnasium, petitioned four
churches, five schools, two Y.W.C.A.'s
and the Y.M.C.A. before they met with
success. Triumphant at last, they
practise three times a week In a
church gymnasium on the Hill, some
two miles from tholr College. Surely
this In decidedly detrimental to the
general prestige of the University.
Another point; Owing to the deficiencies In the gymnastic equipment,
certain subjects of the curriculum for
the Physical Training Diploma Courso
havo had to be omitted. For field
hockey there are no grounds, for fencing there aro no Jackets, and for boxing there are no gloves. The depth
of the water In the pool should bo at
least seven foot for a safe dive—and
that at Lillian Massoy Is not. six feet.

A Pilgrimage
Some twenty students of this University assembled at the waterfront
last Saturday and by boat and hus
made their way to the shores ot West
Bay. Through the kindness of friends,
two adjacent cottages were opened up
and everyone proceeded to make themselves comfortable for a period of
three days. A willingness on the part
of all to help In the kitchen revealed
muoh talent, especially among the
male members. Swimming and baseball are not what one would term seasonable activities, but in periods of
relaxation many of the students indulged while the remainder offered
encouragement from a distance.
Pour study periods of three hours
each were the most enjoyable of all.
An outline ot problems to be considered at the .National Conference of the
Student Christian Movement in Canada, was the basis for discussion.
The application of Christian principals to the problems ot personal life
and institutions was the general
theme.
Finality was not striven for in agreement upon these issues, but a free exchange of opinion tempered by experiences was found to be profitable to
everyone.
Gertrude Rutherford, a national secretary of the S.C.M., made a great
contribution to the discussions because of her devotion to the welfare
ot students, Other retreats are anticipated and we ask you to join us next
time.
A general meeting ot the S.C.M.
will be held in Ag. 102 next Tuesday

Exhibits of Canadian
Artist at Stanford
An exhibit of twenty-five block
prints by Walter J. Phillips was placed
on display at the Art Gallery yesterday. Mr. Phillips, a Canadian, is a
painter and wood block engraver ot
exceptional talent. His prints not only
depict the Northern Canadian country
with all the individual charm and delicate color found ln his paintings and
watercolors, but they reveal an understanding and technical mastery ot the
medium of wood block engraving
which make him an outstanding figure
among the workers in this medium.
Block for Eaoh Tint
Artistic expression finds an easy
and spontaneous outlet in the wood
cut, whether in black-and-white, or in
color. The latter form employs several
blocks, usually one tor each tint, although additional tints producing a
variety of atmospheric qualities may
be effected by the printing of one color
over another. The Impressions are
obtained by letter press, or raised surface printing, as opposed to the intaglio style used for etchings or engravings.
Three Operations
There are three distinct operations
In the production of an original wood
block print. After tho artist has conceived an idea, be must be capable of
drawing upon the block itself. Tbe
second step Is the cutting of the block,
or a series of blocks, If tho work is to
he In color. The last steps, and by no
means the least important, Is the printing, which becomes a fine art in itself.
Mr. Phillips excels as a color printer,
and Canada has shown Its appreciation of him by placing a complete set
of his proofs in the National Museum.
"Norman Bay, Number Two" Is one
of his best-known prints. It was awarded first honors at the International
Print Show, which was held in Los
Angeles, In 1924. All of the prints In
the exhibit have been most carefully
done and a superb blending of colors
haa brought out a very dainty and
realistic effort.—Stanford Dally.
Exchange News
From Other U's.
University of Washington, Seattle,
November 10th—Leadership of U. Of
W. men as national champions in rifle
shooting and Interest ln the sport
here had led the National Rifle Association to propose the organisation ot
a Pacific Coast rifle league in which
smaller institutions such as the Col*
lege of Puget Sound would be eligible
for membership. The national association has formally offered Washington the sponsorship of the league,
which would be under N. R. A. super'
vision. Details of a telegraphic
match are being worked out, with a
suitable trophy as a prise.
University of Washington, Novem-
ber 10th.—Ella Young, Irish poet, will
lecture at this University today. Miss
Young is an authority on Irish liter*-
ture and folk-lore, and has devoted
herself to the field of mythology. The
lecture is being sponsored by the
English Dramatic Arts Department of
the University.
Tutor System Adopted
Southern California, Nov. 1—(P.I.P.)
—Adoption of the English tutor system for living groups on tbe campus
la being considered by Dean Karl T.
Waugh and President von Klelnsmid.
The plan Is to secure a number of
buildings adjacent to the campus housing groups ot men each under the supervision of some instructor. The
scheme Is similar to that now being
used at Oxford where there are 12
such colleges with the same studies
going on In each. An Integral part of
Ihe Idea Is the New Student Union
which will form a central organization
and meeting place
sixty feet- fifteen feet longer than the
available tank. The existence of such
conditions as these serves to demonstrate that there can be absolutely no
doubt of tho fact that tho building
most urgently needed by the University of Toronto at the present time Is
ono affording the women students adequate central accommodation, alike for
athletic and social activities; and that
every effort should be made by the
authorities to provide such a structure
at the earliest possible moment.
/JJ »?"!£ of -N*™**. Oct. Jlnd,-

Are flaring upward from a pile ot wood
fifty feet high, the largest bonfire ever
constructed at thla university. In addition to bleacher yolls there will be
five or six one-act skits and several
speakers.
The freshman-sophomore bonfire
rally Is a tradition of two years standing, marking the end ot hostilities between the two lower classes for the
remainder of the University year.
University of Nevada, Oct. 28nd,«*-
(P.I.P.)—An authorised United States
postofflce will be established on the
campus the latter part of this mouth.
The postofflce will be a regular station
where letters may be registered*
stamps sold, money orders Issued and
a parcel post service established. A
United States employee will be at the
office during the day and handle all
business. Mail for sorority and fraternity houses will be handled through
the university station, and Students
will receive their mail much, more
promptly than in the past.
University of Southern California,
Oct. 22nd.—(P.I.P.)—The honor system has been declared a failure by
several of the prominent faculty members and at present student and faculty committees are at work on this
problem. The main flaw in the system
has been the difficulty in getting student to report violations of the code.
The faculty, on the other hand, does
not greatly relish the idea of going to
police work.
One suggestion was that students
should use notebooks and text books
as much as they see fit during examinations, but to give them questions
designed to test their ability to apply,
use and reason out facts learned during the course within a specified
amount of time.
The "Correspondence"
Type of Debate
Something novel in the form of debates Is at present being conducted
between the University of Dalhousle
and the University of Alberta. These
universities, separated by almost the
netiro breadth of Canada, are engaging
in a correspondence debate, of which
the subject Is on the question of compulsory lecture attendance. In passing,
it is of interest to note that lately an
American unlverrlty, Harvard, has departed from Its regulation requiring
attendance at lectures and has adopted
on trial, the "Oxford" system, which
makes attendance optional with the
student.
On each team in the Dalhousle-Al-
berta debate, there will be two debaters who combine "debating and Journalistic skill." Dalhousle will support
the negative of the resolution which,
formally stated, is "Resolved that compulsory attendance at university lectures Is in the best interests of the
student body."
Tho speeches are to appear simultaneously In the Gateway, official publication of the wostern university, and
the Gazette of the opposing college.
Alberta's leader has already begun the
debute which, reaching Dalhousle,
will be answered within two days,
while It Is printed Immediately in the
Dalhousle Gazette, The Judges are
solectod from the editors ot Canadian
college publications on which the
Ubyssey Is represented.
Tho debate Is due to the efforts of
Max Wetshof of the western university
and should arouso considerable Interest betweea the colleges Immediately
concerned, while If successful, may
well set a new fashion ln Inter-colleglate debating.

IMPRESSIONS OF A GRAD.
Home Coming Night at Vanity.
The editor of the Ubyssey who Is a
friend or mine, (although he is so
modest he pretends he doesn't know
me when we meet in a crowd), asked
me the other day If 1 would write a
report of last Friday's home-coming
celebration for this paper. He said
that he understood that I had been
star reporter for the Ubyssey In my
undergraduate days and he felt It
would be rather fine If I wrote it up.
I admitted it would be fine and told
him I would do It
Being unable to complete the
article Immediately on account of several important engagements with a
young lady friend, 1 finally persuaded
the editor to publish the Ubyssey this
week on Thursday Instead of Tuesday
In order to allow me time to get it In.
Following is the body of my report ot
the Theatre Night Home-coming celebration.
Kla-How-Yah, readers of the Ubyssey. A very enjoyable theatre night
was held last Friday evening In the
auditorium of the University of British Columbia when the undergraduates entertained the graduates. The
first person I saw when I stepped
through the entrance was Miss Nllly.
She was standing by herself to one
side of the door watching the people
as they came In, This was the llrst
time I had seen her since we graduated more than a year ago. You see
we had a serious misunderstanding
about that time.
Upon first catching a glimpse of
her my heart bounded Into my mouth
and I swallowed hard. By that I
ttnew Instantly that I must still be In
'ove. You always know, that you're in
'ove whon you swallow hard.
My flrst Impression of her was that
she was every bit as beautiful as
when I knew her ln her undergraduate days, my second that she was
dressed with the same good taste that
she had always shown. She wore a
green tulle dress trimmed with yellow crepe de chene and a large bunch
of orange roses suspended from her
waist. Her hair was piled In a beautiful golden coll on the top of her
head and she wore a pair of white
•tockings and black boots. Miss Nllly
always did have a distinctive way of
dressing.
But to come back to the more Important Hems of my report. After
my heart had jumped Into my mouth
nnd I had swallowed hard, I wondered
If Miss Nllly had seen me. I didn't
quite see how she could help It for I
'■ad been standing staring at her for
'Hilto a long time, Evidently sho had
I could see that she was looking at
tne nnd .smiling slightly. I)y thnt I
floured that perhaps she wns glad to
nee me in spite of our previous mis-
understtindini:.
"I'm awfully glad to see you again,
Miss Nllly," 1 said, going up to hor.
"I'm awfully glad to see you too,
M>\ Cork." she answered, and glanced
charmingly up at me through the tops
of hor eyeballs.
"It's a long tlmo since I've seen
you," I said nervously.
"Yes, it is a long time," Bhe replied, and gazed bashfully at her
boots.
I wanted very badly to find something out so I mustered up my courage and asked: "Who—who did you
come with to-night, Miss Nllly?"
"I came all by myself," she replied. I was very glad to hear this
although It rather surprised mo.
After all It was strange that a girl
as well dressed and beautiful as Miss
Nllly should havo got a chance to
come alone.
"Yes," she continued, "I came alone
and ever since I arrived I've heen
standing hero ln the corner and no
one has come to speak to me,—at
least no one until you came. I'm
awfully glad you came, Mr. Cork."
She giijsed up at mo In a sort of way
that made mo swallow hard. I wanted to ask her lo sit with me during
the performance but I wns afraid,
owing to our former misunderstanding, Hint she might refuse. Being
very tfcin-sklnned I find It. hard to
bear Hie thought of a refusal. Consequently I hesitated,
"Well, I guess I'll go and find my
self a seat," said Miss Nllly, making
it move.    Should I ask her or should
I  not?    I was desperate.
"Are you sitting with anyone?" I
nuked nervously.
"No, I'm not, sho said," I'm sitting
all alone by myself. That determined
nu. I would ask her and take a
chance on a refusal.
Rather to my surprise sho didn't
refuse. I say surprise because Miss
Nllly being n popular girl picks her
company nnd has a great number of
gentlemen friends and admirers. 1
know Ihat for a fact because she has
often told me so.
But I must get on with this report
and give a synopsis of tho performance. First of all the lights went out
and the curtain was raised. The
turning out of tho lights startled Miss
Nllly to such an extent that she reached out suddenly and caught hold of
my hand. I swallowed hard, seised
It, and hung on tight for the rest of
the evening. Miss Nllly Is a timid
'litre thing.
When the curtain went up there
was an orchestra playing. It was a
good orchestra and the first piece
they played was fine, although I must
say I didn't care so much for the
selection which followod.
The second item on the programme
was an "Open Meeting for Past Student Presidents." He delivered a
charming address.
Third on the list was a duet by
Miss K. Baird and Mr. T. Louden. I
don't know much about music but
Miss Nllly, who is well up In the stuff,
says It was tho most unique duet she
ever listened to because you could
neither see nor hear Mr, Louden.
Arts '20 presented an offering in
which a girl dressed as Littte Red Riding hood danced and another little
girl sang a song entitled, "When the
Cock Cock Robin Comes Bob Bob
Bobbin' Around."
"Tho Pot Boiler" was great drama,
both moral and Instructive. Personally, I never realised before Just how
plays were written, Miss Nllly said
that she was a bit disappointed because she thought the name "Pot
Boiler" signified thrt the play was
going to be of a domestic nature and
she did so like things that were
domestic. She leaned over towards
me when she said that, and that made
me swallow hard.
The Players' Club effort was followed by a short and cryptic address
by President Kllnk on,—well on the
things college presidents usually talk
about.    Incidentally  Miss  Nllly  said
he thought the President was a dear.
However, I didn't mind that because
I knew he was married.
The flneat feature of the programme
was a ballet Egyptlenne entitled
"Tho Coming of Thoth," Neither Miss
Nllly or I were quite sure who
Thoth was, but we thought it must
be my friend the editor who came out
through the curtains after the performance with a cigarette nnd a girl
under his arm. The act itself was
V'O colorful. A. number of girls
dressed tis as Kgyptian men came out
on the stage nnd danced. Miss Nllly
who knows a great deal about dancing saltl they did their work extreme-
I- well, but I had a sort of feeling
myself that some of the taller ones
weren't very graceful—oven though
they wore dressed as men.
An original feature of the evening
was the closing whon everyone stood
up and sang "God Save The King."
Neither Miss Nllly nor I am able to
sing, so we left before they finished In
order to got a seat In the bus. When
we finally got there Miss Nllly found
she had lost her tickets so I lent her
one of mine. That is about everything of public interest thnt happened in connection with the Homecoming, except perhaps I might add
that 1 must have caught a bad cold
In the rain Friday night for I have
found groat difficulty ln swallowing
ever since.

Lay of Hen No. 6
Hall to the fowl that has broken the
record!
Honored and bleas'd be the number six
hen!
May her triumphant career be un-
checkered,
Great victories gained for the U.B.C.
pen.
Leghorns and Wyandottes quailed,
Rhode Island Reds have tailed, ,
Useless   and   futile   their   manifold
tricks,
For, laying readily,
Often and steadily,
On to her triumph swept Hen Number
Six.
No one can say that she was chicken-
hearted,—
She who ne'er failed yet to come up
to scratch.
She had no yell squads to cheer her
when started
On her wonderful feat in that egg-
laying match.
No thought of block letter
Urged her to do better.
Egged ever on by her loyalty alone,
When nests were full, It
Was due to our pullet
Making her dear Alma Mater well-
known.
Ours is no bantam chance reared in
the chicken-coop,
Fed upon scraps to he served as a
roast;
Or quite dissected, and seasoned to
thicken soup,
Or as a frlcasse, garnished with toast.
Artites and Science men
Echo her praise again,
Cheered by the Aggies and all other
hicks;
Bringing to our fair name
Splendour and lasting fame!
Sky-rocket! whizz-bang! lor Hen Number Six.
Rugby and soccer have brought us no
honor
Compared  to the glory our pullet has
won.
Laurel tho wreath to bo rested upou
her,—
Small mood indeed for our place in the
sun!
Freshmen and Sophomore
Gaze ln transcondant awe,
Eager to bask In her matronly smile.
Junior and Senior beg
Just for one luscious egg,~
One snowy orb from her fast-mounting
pile.
Hall to our darling, our emblem, our
symbol!
What radiant beauty from her visage
shines!
Blare forth the trumpet and sound the
loud timbrel.
Our marvellous bird in her chamber
reclines.
Nightingale, linnet
Are simply not in It,
Whon Number Six Hen cackles forth
her sweet cluck.
Ravon and rook, you
Have simply gone cuckoo;
In   heart-broken   envy   your   feathers
you pluck.
Long live our hun, may the pip never
touch here.
May sho live on to an active old age;
Never   fall   into   thu   clutch   of   the
butcher,
Or be crushed hy a flivver car on the
rampage,
lint when hor parting breath
Heralds the touch of death,
Old  Charon   will  pilot  her over  the
Styx;
And lu the shades below
KI.vhIuih glades will know
The unequalled prowess of Hen Number Six.

HOW IT STARTED
The alienists were in despair. For
days King Nebuchadnesiar had roamed on all fours through the luxurious
fields of his country estate, cropping
the thick herbage. His favorite wife
was wild with grief and was beginning to believe that sho was a real
grass widow.
The King had become the flrst dating crank. Among other things, he
wanted to reduce, and had tried
remedy after remedy without success.
To add to his worries, a young Jew
named Dpniel had Interpreted one of

King's pulse and looked at his tongue.
"Keep off the strong stimulants,''
he said at last, "Keep off the starchy
foods," "What else?" asked the King,
"Keep off the grass," said the dietitian firmly.

Modern Salesmanship
"For men must work,"—so quoth
Tennyson In ages past, but the adage is as true today; as witness the
manful hawker of dally chronicles at
the corner of Sasamat and Tenth.
Unnoticed by the senior, scorned by
the frosh, this Intrepid figure Is always
mingling with the assemblage of yellow slickers and green ties. Above
the discourse on Inferior complexes
and Math. I mid terms, his voice
ascends with determined brightness
nnd volublllty—"Provlnce paper—two
cents." Pew realise the responsibility
ho carries on those broad shoulders.
Few realise the doubts and fears that
assail his youthful mind as he relaxes
from his strenuous duties and awaits
the next bus. What if he short-changed
that surly dame over there. What If
that freshman discovers he sold him
yesterday's edition. No mere array
of words can give an adequate idea ot
his mental anguish at these thoughts.
We wonder what will become of this
persevering entrepreneur. Possibly
someday he will be a student himself.
Thus, undaunted by business solicitude, by burning bum or howling
tempests, he struggles through tha
week
On Sundays we lose sight of him
and we speculate on how he spends
his day or rest. Perhaps he spends it
ln resigned boredom, but far more
likely he casts dull care to the winds
and blossoms forth in gaudy raiment
that would even make Science '30 send
enviously for a new official tailor.
With unceasing regularity Monday
morning again arrives and once more
he resigns himself to his fate, tor
most certainly "men must work."

Canadian Mermaids
Chief among aquatic sports Is the
enclent and royal sport of natation,
as the highbrows among;the duck and
flsh (rlbe call tt. Most of the speed
artists in this line do not natate
however—they swim, and they sure
can strut their stuff. Our Canadian
girls know how to do this,
Toronto Is the home town of most
of tho feminine stars, and It sum gets
quite puffed up over the swimming
events whon the Torontonettes with
mean pairs of flns out the championship waters for their seaweed crowns.
This fair city homes the female Canadian champs In the 60 yards, 100
meter, 200 yards, and the 50-yard
back stroke, The fancy diving title
Is also al home there.
No, Winnipeg milkmen do not monopolise the water supply there, for
'he 100 yard and 4<0 yard was won
Hy a fair exponent ot the art ot the
crawl from that village.
After this haranguing, a suggestion
for the BWiraming girls of our country would be in order. It had started
with channel swims records being broken so often this year, why can't we
initiate a sort of Cook's Tour swim to
Europe? r am sure that the feat
would be quite novel in the realm
of Neptune, and that it would turn
out to be, likely, an All-Canadian
event. o. S.

Sport Comments on
Game Seen at
Normal
Carve this on your cuticle. Wally
Mayers Is one of tho snappiest little
forwards that ever brought a face full
of freckles across Klngsway. He can
shoot and check, and what's more, he
does It all the time,
The same chorus applies lo Hugh
Grant. He cannot boast ot the freckles,
but he can boast of basketball ability.
Fourteen points In one game Is pretty
good for an opening tussle.
"Sphinx" Butler is still the eagle
eye ot old. He is the Inspiration to
any team and what's more he knows
basketball.
Varsity, however, might develop an
even bigger threat In the scoring
column if they worked the ball in
closer, Long distance shooting was
effective on Saturday night, but it Just
won't do against Adanacs. They will
check Varsity off their feet unless they
pass faster and oftener. Players of
the calibre of Grant, Robinson, King,
Mayers and butler can become deadly
shots from close ln and it In much
more effective against a fast team.
Basketball has always been a very
popular sport at the University, and
there is nothing this student body
would appreciate more than to gaze
upon another team that would go right
to the final round ot the Dominion
title. That is quite possible this year,
but the student body must support tho
team. Oo out to every game because
it is the first tew games that are going
to mean everything when the points
are added up this season.
Do you realise that it is the flrst
big major game that we have won
this year.
The girls' basketball squads, both
Senior A and Senior B, are playing
the best brand ot the casaba tossing
game that the fair sex has thrown
around the campus for many seasons
and then some.
Claire Menton, a little girl from the
Royal City, and Thelma Mahon, who
scored so many points on the Felixes
ot Chown Church in the Sunday School
league that they lost track ot the
figures, are the neatest pair you can
find anywhere. Thelma scored 9 points
in the first holt and then took it easy
tor the rest of the game.
Torchy Bailey is a fine player and
strong defensive guard, but she might
Improve the co-ordination of the forward line hy passing oftener. She
played a fine game and scored 6 points.
Rene Harris, at center, has all the
merits of a fine player. She understands her position and besides opening up the piays for the forwards she
can score with regularity. She gathered in 6 points.
The team that beats the girls' squad
this year will have to ho something out
of the ordinary in basketball. They
will have to be fast, and experts at
the short passing game, since any
team that passes up speed merchants
like Thelma Mahon and Torchy Bailey
will be out of tbe ordinary.
FIRST SOCCER vs.
NORTH SHORE
Or. Saturday afternoon the Varsity
soccer squad will travel to North Vancouver where they will oppose the
Vorth Shore eleven at Mahon Park.
The kick-off Is scheduled for 2.30, and
a good contest should follow.
The Varsity team, after two weeks
rest, are ln splendid condition and
hope to register a win on Saturday.
This should not be difficult after the
showing they* made against Victoria
it Athletic Park ln the last game.
Anderson will again guard the nets
i'or the University. The reliable full-
hacks, Crute and Baker, will as usual
be   on   the   defense.     The   half-back
tie will bo composed of Robertson,
Phillips, and Shields, who will keep
the opposition busy, And on the
scoring end, there will be Warden,
M:>i'tn, Ledlngham, Kvnns and Wad-
Ington, the same forwards who upheld
(he University In the game against
Victoria.

RADICAL CHANGES MADE IN
SYSTEM OF LETTER AWARDS
Committee's Proposal will be Placed Before Meeting
Of   Ma Aa Sa
Revised system of letter awards will
be presented by the Men's Athletic
Executive to members of tho Men's
Athletic Association at a meeting In
Applied Science 100 on November 17.
A committee consisting of R. 0.
Phillips, Frank Elliott and W. B.
Thompson, appointed last fall, considered the question of letter awards
during the summer and has presented
a report which has been approved by
the executive. This report must be
endorsed by members of the association.
According to one ot the more important recommendations a "big block
letter" committee will be formed in
which faculty, alumni and undergraduates will be represented to give final
decision In regard to the awarding ot
letters. The report also recommends
the formation of a "big block" olub,
of which any student winning a major
letter automatically becomes a member.
Class numerals will be presented to
the Freshmen class in lieu of letters,
because ot the present rules prohibiting the awarding of letters to members of the first year, If another recommendation Is carried out.

the proposed revision of the letter
award system:

Sport Editor Urges
Backing One Sport
it was too had Varsity lost on Saturday but the game did wonders for
our   much-lamented   'college   spirit."
For the first time this year the
Varsity was whole-heartedly behind an
athletic team and was out to announce that fact to any who would
listen and a lot more that wouldn't
but had to. It proved that there was
life in the college yet, and that, being
proved, it Is not necessarily a platitude to continue, and say "and hope,"
On Saturday In tbe east a Queen's
student body witnessed with grief-
laden eyes the victory of a traditional
rival and across the border line crimson pennants drooped while an orange
aud black Princeton team took revenge. So, you see, ive have company hi our misery.
The University of British Columbia
needs more traditional games like Saturday. More chance to express itself
as it did on Saturday and throughout
the "home coming" programme.
Seniors editors of this family Journal have been bewailing the lack of
pep. Two sporting editors have been
vilifying ihe student body for falling
to  support,   tlie   team.
Now, we think If there were more
things like Saturday's game there
would be less weeping and gnashing
of teeth, less slander ln regard to our
beloved student  body.
Although we round lo open the subject we feel thnt the trouble with
Ibis University Is that, there are too
tunny sports. Opponents of thin will
shout Ihat the whole student, body
plays, but that, would bo just us true
If there was only one sport,
We let I that If there were, say, six
English rugby teams and no Canadian rugby team ,or six Canadian
rugby teams and no English rugby
team it would be bettor for us all
around.
Women's Team is
Badly Beaten
at Hockey
At a meeting held on Thursday
noon in A. 106, the line-ups for the
A and B teams were announced, the
captains and the vice-captains were
elected and other business traaseoted,
It was moved and seoonded that •
note of sympathy he sent to Mrs.
Sproule and Missea Marion and Ooldy
Sproule for their recent bereavement.
The following schedule for this
week's games was announced:
Nov. 18—Duke Contiaught at Westminster. The full line-ups for A and B
teams are as follows: A team—Jean
Petrle, V. Mcintosh, T. Sproule, P.
Stewart, M. Harvle; M. Pollock, M.

Beth Pollock. B team—O. Pendray,
M, Moncrleff, E. Orinal, A, H. Men*
orleft, M. Moffat; J. Hart, M. McKay,
B. Wilson; N. Melllsh, H. Cook; T.
Henderson.
The results of the elections for captains and vice-captains were as follows:—Varsity A—Jean Petrle, B.
Pollock; Varsity B—D. Cruise, M.
McKay.
A representative team game Waa
played agalnBt Kltsllano on Thursday
at Connaught Park. The passing
among the forwards has improved,
but their shooting Is still poor, the
defence was not checking quite as
well as in the former game. Lois
Todd played the best game of any on
the team. The score at the end of
the first half was 5-0 ln favor of Kltsllano. With a change in goalies the
winners' score was kept down to Six
goals, the Varsity team being unable
to score any points tor themselves.
Late ln the second half, the Varsity
forwards rushed the ball up to their
opponents goal but were sent back ln
a two-bit bally. Before Varsity could
rally sufficiently for another attempt
at goal the final whistle blew without a change ln score.
MEMORIAL TENNIS
COURTJOICATED
Owing to the unfavourable weather,
the dedication of the Memorial Tennis
Courts took place in the Library, after
the presentation of the Valedictory
gift. Johnny Oliver Introduced Mr.
Sherwood Lett, flrst President of the
A. M. S.
Mr. Lett drew a vivid picture of the
scenes at U, B. C. when war was
declared. He told how the hoys who
had played the game so well at Varsity responded to the call and went
oversea* to carry on the great game
in the battlefields of France.
He described the scenes near Paris
when, an the boys wont over the top,
they showed the same spirit of courage and endurance that they had
*hown on the playing fields of IT. B. C.
The tennis courts will keep fresh
through many generations of undergrads., the memory of those who carried the U. B. C. traditions of good
sportsmanship to France. To their
memory Mr. Sherwood Lett dedicated
the tablet.
The audience then dispersed to
continue the Inspection of the buildings. Freshmen rivalled Cook's guides
in displaying the splendours of the
University. Miss Holland and Mr.
Levers conducted parties through the
stacks until four o'clock when everyone adjourned to the Cnf.

In regard to soccer It is a different
matter. No matter how well advertised, the student body remains apathetic to soccer. It Is a fine game but
rugby Is the college game, a fact
about which there Is no argument,
The sporting staff of "The Ubyssey"
humbly submits that the time has
come for the athletic authorities of
this university to decide now and forever which kind of rugby this school If
to piny. The lesson of Saturday's game
must not be forgotten. The time to
do Mils Is now and not tomorrow. It
must be the game that Is best for the
college but It muHt become the game.

Ietun and a mediocre English rugby
team Is over. We must have a team,
nnd It must be the college team.
If Tantiy Butler and his Men's Athletic Executive wish to do the college
n favor I bey will act on this question
Immediately. If they don't they
merely evade a pressing question and
in lite meantime tho athletic prestige
of the University suffers. 7V

Wins from
Alumni in Close
Gwne Saturday
Displaying the light that may carry
a Varsity basketball team to Its second
Western   Canada   title,   the   British
Slumhla hoopsters gave the Grads a
tl close trimming on Saturday night
•t Normal Oyin.   Varaity showed the
S" as that strong teams are made of,
ey can boast ot a free scoring forward Une and a trio ot guards who oan
Check and shoot with the best of them,
The Same Saturday, while not brilliant
from  the  standpoint ot  basketball
noorplay, was all that could be desired
* om the standpoint of possibilities,
rery team lacks coordination in the
rst few games, hut few teams will
isplay the same accurate shooting
that the Varsity forwards did on Saturday night.
The combination of Grant, Butler
and Mayers will develop Into the
smoothest aggregation In the league,
Should they continue at their present
rate. Hubert King was unfortunate in
not being able to break into the game
Oh Saturday night, but injuries to his
leg made It impossible.
Grant for Varsity opened the scoring
a few seconds after the whistle with a
neat center floor basket, followed by
counters from Arkley and Wallace ot
the Grads.  Those two former Varsity
boys were playing brilliant games on
Saturday and Varsity guards had their
, hands full to hold them down.
V.     Throughout the entire flrst half the
H '• teams never varied in scoring honors
more than three or tour points, but the
>  Grads managed to keep ahead, and at
the halt-way mark the score stood
18-12 tor the Alums.
' Mayers, Grant and Butler were all
playing a brilliant combination game.
At the beginning of the second half
•:>p the Alums broke away and ran up a
i'JO lead of 17-14, but Mayers and Grant
||\came back to even matters up.   The
fv-";*ntire game see-sawed back and forth
Vg^nntll the score stood 27-all.    Grant
A¥  tossed one in to make the two-point
lead, but Stan Arkley came right back
with the tying basket.   At the whistle
Butler was awarded a free throw, but
failed, and the score stood 29-29.   A
five-minute overtime was played.
Mayers shot a beauty from a distance to make it 81-29. Butler made
good a throw and shortly after Wallace ot the Grads, snapped in a neat,
one from close ln. This left the score
82-31 at the whistle.

WOMEN'S BASKETBALL
WOMEN'S ATHLETICS CHANGES
RULES FOR LETTER AWARDS
H
The system of women's letter awards
will see a complete change this year,
according to Miss Jean Gilley, president of Women's Athletics. Women's
sports will bo divided Into major,
minor and sub-minor, making the tetter awards totally different from last
year. At the meeting of the Women's
Athletic Executive this new system of
letter awards was discussed and
passed. The approval of the Students'
Council lo needed before It oan finally
be passed. The major sports are in
two divisions. In the flrst the "A"
team in basketball and the four highest ranking swimmers will be entitled
to a big block letter to be worn on a
white sweater coat. This big block
letter will not resemble that awarded
to the men, but will have the same
significance and will mean as muoh to
the women as the men's ilo to them.
The university crest and shield will
have their place on the block and tho
letters will form a background for
them. A new service award takes the
form cf a shield to be awarded to the
girl who has playod on the same team
tor two consecutive years.
Division II of major sports consists
of the "B" team in basketball and the
four women swimmers ranking second
highest. A small block letter will be
the award tor division two. In the
minor sports division I consists of
the First Badminton team, the track
champion and those ranking first in
the tennis tournament. The award in
this division will be a small block letter. There was quite a discussion as
to whether the track champion should
be entitled to a big block or not, but
it was decided that as there Is only
one track meet a year and the preparation required only takes up a
month, at the most, ot the entries'
time, that the big block for track
should be reserved as a special award
tn the event of women's intercollegiate
track coming to U.B.C. Division II ln
minor sports consists ln the second
Badminton team, the award to be a
round letter. There is Just one division in sub-minor sport, which takes
Playing before the largest crowd
for many a game the Senior A girls
lived up to their reputation and downed the B team to the tune of 26-11.
The play on the whole was fast and
open but the shooting of both teams
was weak. This was especially
noticeable ln the B team who time
and time again missed comparatively
easy shots. Had this not been the
case the score would have been more
even for apart from the shooting the
two teams were not badly matched.
Senior A—Thelma Mahon 7, Clare
Menton 5, Rene Harris 6, "Torchy"
Bailey 6, Jeanne Carlawe 2, Gay
Swenciski, Winona Straight.
Senior B—Jean Musgrave 2, Doris
Woods 4, Gerry Whitaker 2, Isabel
Headley 2, "Red" McLeod I, Lorlne
Lister, Kay Kldd.

THOTH CLUB
A mooting of the Thoth Club will

In Room A 201, to discuss membership.
University of Alberta to
be Here Saturday
This Saturday the University of Alberta plays Victoria here in the flrst
round of the Dominion Canadian Rugby playoffs. Although the members
of the Alberta team are not technically
our guests, it is up to us to see that
their visit to the coast is an enjoyable
one.
On the several occasions when Varsity tenuis have visited Edmonton, they
have beon royally entertained by the
University of Alberta. Whethor Varsity was playing against them or not,
the Edmonton students have turned
out lu a body and given enthusiastic
support to Blue and Gold players.
This Is the first time a team from
our sister college has visited the
coast; it Is our opportunity to pay off
the debt ot gratitude we owe, Our
track team, our basketball team, and
our tennis team wore treated gallantly
in Edmonton. What sort of treatment
is the Alberta team to receive ln Vancouver?   That is up to us.
The University of B. C. has built up
a fine reputation for hospitality in the
entertainment of representatives of
other colleges.
The projected programme ot entertainment calls for a car ride, Sunday, and inspection of our buildings, and a basketball dance Saturday night. Student support is solicited at the game Saturday afternoon
at 2.30 In Athletic Park, ln the lending
of their cars for the conveyance of
the visitors, and at the hoop hop Saturday night.
The game should be the best played
on the coast this seuson. Victoria Is
the B. C champion; the U. of A, the
Alberta  champion,
Varsity Sweaters
Orders will lie recelvod by tho
Curator for University Dress Sweaters, These sweaters have a V-neck,
while body, with blue and gold trimmings on the neck and sleeve.
Tbe Curator will purchase only the
number of sweaters that are ordered
by students. Please state approximate size at the waist. The price will
be $5.00 or less. Address orders to
the "Curator" and leave them ln the
letter rack.
In gymnasium and hockey, The letter
awards In this division are presented
to the hockey team and the three
women ranking highest In gymnasium,
The award in this division Is a round
letter. No letter awards will be given
to the freshmen class until they are
registered In their second year. In
past years the letter awards have come
to mean little lo the student because
they were so oasy to obtain, It is
thought that In making the conditions
harder the value of the letters will
come to mean moro to the student,
than in former years. Any letter
award may be given on tho special
recommendation of the Women's Athletic Executive. The wisdom of this
clause will be noticeable ln the awarding of block letters for Women's intercollegiate competition.
Arts '80 bids fair to clean up on tbe
major events. The teams for the
Women's relay have not yet boen
picked, but Margaret Lamb, Eleanor
Arnold, Marge Greenwood and Jean
Snell will probably represent '30. Arts
'20 will give '30 a run with Mary Carte-
er, Nellie Melllsh, Marjorie Kirk and
Eleanor Gordon to the tore. The diving will be keenly contested, and It is
rumored that '27 and '30 will have a
close finish. The other women's events
will be the 'plunge, fifty yards tree-
style, fifty yards back-stroke, and fifty
yards hreust stroke. Come on out and
support your class. Don't forget, on
Tuesday, November the sixteenth, at
the Women's Undergraduate meeting,
the fate of the Women's Rooters Club
will be decided.
Soccer Team Wins
Important Game
From Sappers
The Second Soccer Team defeated
Sapperton Young Liberals, the leading team of the second division 5-4
on Saturday at their own grounds.
The game was fast and Varsity played well to win, scoring four goals ln
the flrst half and one near the end
of the second half.
Varsity started kicking up-hill and
about ten minutes after the start
Mel Gauden broke away and scored
Ihe first goal jvlth a strong shot from
some distance out. Varsity pressed
bf.nl and Gauden again beat the opposing backs for Ihe second score on
an Individual effort, Kapporton was
working hard and sent In some good
stud i which Anderson cleared nicely.
Finally Oiey scored on a shot which
II was impossible to get, Play went
from end to end for a while and soon
Duffell scored a header from a
scramble in front of the Sapperton
goal. Sapperton came down the field
and when Anderson was clearing the
1 nil it rebounded off one of the Sapperton players Into the goal. Shortly
after Varsity was awarded a corner
mid Dick Splllsbury placed the ball in
the corner of thw net with a beautiful
first line drive. Sapperton scored
again just before the end of the half
making the half time score 4-3.
Sapperlon pressed hard in the second half but due to the fine work of
the Varsity defence, especially of
Robertson and Wright, was unable to
score. About half way through the
half Sapperton was awarded a penalty
and equalized the score. Warden
dropped back to full-back and Wright
went to centre-half. Varsity kept the
hall on Sapperton's half of the field
and about ten minutes before time
one of the opposing backs fouled
fart ridge, Splllsbury took the kick
and (he ball came out. of a scramble
to Wright who hammered It Into the
net for the winning goal. Varsity defence from now on rushed Hie ball
buck io the forwards with long kicks,
and the final whistle found Varsity
hemming In the Sapperton team,
By defeating Hits league-leading and
lilt berto unbeaten team the second
team has excellent prospects for continuing on Its winning way. The forwards shot whenever they had nn
opportunity and the defence both
checked and kicked finely. Indeed all
the men played well and It would be
difficult to pick out any outstanding
players. Lineup—Anderson; Robertson and Wright; Emery, Warden and
Miller; Stevenson, Duffel, Gauden,
Partridge and Splllsbury.
Our Advertisers
Every week there appear a certain
number of advertisements in the
Ubyssey. It is from these that the
finances for the paper are scoured;
In fact tls very existence Is rendered
possible almost entirely by thorn.
Therefore we must urge the students
to pay more attention to the advertisements, to give the business men,
who are using our paper to the
mutual advantage or botlt themselves
and ourselves, much of their patronage as possible. Far be It from us to
attempt to coerce the student body In
this matter, or to urge a course upon
students against their own Judgment.
We only Bay that these advertisements endorsed by the college paper,
deserve greater attention than they
are at present receiving. Further,
that those who give us their advertising should be given preference by
students. We would like to feel that
It Is mere oversight and not deliberate disregard which prevents them
from obtaining the results they Justly
expect. They are not mere space-
fillers!
CLASSICS CLUB
The Classic Club will meet this
Saturday evening at the home of
Prof. Robertson, Corner of Wesbrook
Crescent and Chancellor Avenue.
Miss Winnie Boyes, Arts 27, will give
a paper on Rohan Religion. All members of the club will be present, and
all past members are cordially Invited.
