SOCCER CUP

J
NEXT GAME
Mainland   Gup   Holders   Play
Crucial "Fixture   Saturday
Against First Division
Leaders
To everyone who recollects the
Mainland cup final of last year this
invitation should not be necessary,
but a word is necessary to the freshman year. The representatives of this
University in first division soccer
were last year successful in capturing the Mainland Cup, emblematic of
the championship of the Mainland.
Their opponents then were the Longshoremen, the score was 1—0, and the
game itself was one of the finest ever
played on a local field. Next Saturday, Varsity again meets the Longshoremen in the third round of the
same competition. The contest is not
a final, but the winning of it practically means the silverware for Point
Grey. Twice the Longshoremen have
defeated the Collegians this season,
each time by the odd goal and the
Varsity boys have determined to reverse the score on Saturday. Every
student should come, not only because
the team needs and merits Jiis support, but because he will see a game
that is worth watching. The Mainland Cup, now in the possession of
Varsity, is the most coveted and valuable athletic trophy in British Columbia, and the soccer team is determined that Varsity shall keep it.
The game commences at 2.30, at
Con Jones' Park. Take car No. 12,
or 13, (Hastings East) and get off at
Hastings   Park.

Russian Question at King
Edward
Varsity's senior rugby fifteen have
again won the McKechnie cup as the
inter-city champions of British Columbia, defeating Victoria Rep. 8-0 last
Saturday at the Capital. Varsity has
gone through the season without a defeat and well deserves the honour.
Scrum work in Saturday's game
was at the height of perfection, no
better display being made in B. C.
since the visit of the famous All-
Blacks of New Zealand several years
ago. Heeling of the scrum was a
feature of the tussle, the Collegians
often taking the ball thirty yards as
they heeled the scrums. Nothing
could stop these rushes until the formation naturally broke.
Varsity lacked the services of Geh.
Ternan, the captain, who is ill, and
although Buchanan played an excellent game in his position the backs
could not get away as well as they
have in previous games.    They played
(See
a good uefensive crame, in which Claire
Domoney starred with his fine kicking.
Varsity started off strongly and
carried the Victoria men into their
two-bit area for almost the whole of
the first half and in spite of frequent
rallies by the Rep in which long kicks
by Boss Johnston were features, were
able to score before the half-time
whistle sounded. Price received a pass
from Hislop in a line-out and dashed
for the line five yards away making
the try in spite of the determined efforts of Wally Brynjolfson to get him.
The try was unconverted.
More tnree-quarter work was featured it the second half. Al Buchanan

Senior A Defeated ] Appeal for Student
atjellingham
International Basketball Feature
Lost to Normals After Hard
Fought Game
The Whatcom High School Gym,
Bellingham, was the scene of a hard
fought contest on Saturday night,
when the Washington State Normals
defeated Varsity Senior "A" by 34 to
26 before a crowded gallery. Both
quintettes struck a fast pace from the
opening whistle. The Normals drew
first blood with a shot from centre
floor. Butler equalized the score 3
minutes later with a nice shot, after
cleverly beating the Normals' defence.
Varsity had hard luck in shooting and
found difficulty in penetrating the excellent defence put up by its opponents. The half ended with the score
18-8 in favor of the state Normals.
Varsity Stages Rally
With 7% minutes to go in the second half, the Varsity men, inspired by
Bassett's beautiful shot from centre
floor, suddenly found themselves. In
quick succession Bickell, Hartley, Bassett, Butler, and Lewis, found the basket for 15 points. Unfortunately the
rally come too late to secure the
game and the final whistle sounded
with the Normals 8 points in the lead.
It is expected that a return game
with the Washington State Normals
will be staged here on January 26th.
The Team—Lewis (1), Grauer, Butler (11), Bassett (6), Bickell (4),
Wilkinson (2), Hartley (2).
Relief in Europe
Deplorable Conditions Prevailing
To-day Can be Relieved by
Student Help
The following extract from a recently written article on "Life in Germany To-day," will furnish the reader
with some idea of the misery in Central Europe and the urgent need for
help. It is a description of classroom conditions, written by a school
teacher:
"Some of my friends are working
in classroms where one child in four
is tuberculous, and these must infect
the others in time because everybody
is undernourished. We haven't much
tubercle yet, and if we could but get
warmth we might escape it. Unfortunately, we want three-fold warmth,
fire for cold stoves, food for empty
stomachs, clothes for weakly bodies.
Where are they to come from?"
Professor Ulrong in his pamphlet on
"Student Relief" answers the question
"We who realize what the University
has brought to our own lives can
help a little. While a few might give
more, if a considerable number would
give ten or even five dollars a great
deal could be done."
To show how frugal is the fare of
the University student it may be said
that $1.25 will give him a daily meal
for a month, and $10.00 will do it for
a whole college year. Tag day is on
Friday.
Tomorrow evening at 8.15 p.m. one
of the major events of tiie college
year will take place, when picked representatives of the University of Idaho will match mental swords with B. C.
debaters. The subject of the debate
—"Resolved that the United States
should recognize the Soviet Government of Russia"— is one that should
prove interesting to all live students,
while the speakers themselves are
tried and experienced men.
"Pa1" (^"pr A-rta 25, is for the
second time one of the two debaters
to represent U.B.C. here. Last year
Mr. Grauer conclusively proved his
ability as a public speaker when, in
conjunction with Harry Cassidy of
Arts 23, he aided in defeating the
crack team. California sent up to oppose them. "Dal" is also well known
for his activities as President of the
Lit. and Scientific Dept.
fjnrrUTTVi wynnnmvirn Arts '24, who
will uphold the affirmative with Mr.
Grauer, is no less noteworthy as a
successful debater. In addition to his
excellent work in inter-class debates
and his active participation in affairs
of the Historical Society, Mr. Yonemura has done muah public speaking
on economic and social problems both
in Vancouver and other cities.
"Johnny" Burton, the hard working
Debates Manager, assures the students
that Idaho will send up two of her
very best speakers for the event, so
that they may expect a close contest.
It is to be hoped that every student
who can possibly spare the time will
attend the debate. Our speakers have
devoted many weeks in gruelling preparation, and it is only just that their
efforts should be assisted by the active support of their fellow-students.
The winning of this debate is just as
important to the Academic record of
the University as is the retention of
the McKechnie Cup to its reputation in athletics, and especially is this
so when it is considered that, with the

ary speed and good judgment when he
received the ball from Palmer's high
kick which was fumbled by the Victoria backs. Picking the ball up
as he went at top speed, and closely
followed by McLean and Purdy, he
eluded three fast men of the Victoria
team and dashed over the line, circled
around and placed the ball between
the posts. Val Gwyther could not fail
in the kick and brought the score to
8. Spectators of the Capital city gave
the players a rousing cheer as they
made the play.
Victoria rallied near the end of the
game but were unable to score owing
to Varsity's defensive tactics, and the
Collegians finished the game with the
McKechnie cup cinched.

Class Notes
.■'      ARTS 25.
A well attended meeting of Arts '25
was held in Room X on Tuesday last.
The class decided to hold two parties,
one of which is to be a "Leap Year"
party. The date of the parties will
be announced later.
ARTS '26
Arts '26 held a meeting in Room Z
on Monday last. Dr. Sedgewick, the
Honorary President, addressed the
class. In his speech, the Doctor urged
the class to seek scholastic success.
He pointed out, with instances from
Dalhousie and Harvard, that the
graduates who made a success of life
were generally those who had done
well in college. He showed that good
work need not interfere with College
activities.
After the Doctor had concluded his
address, the class voted that forty
works of modern fiction should be
given to the Library, the choice of
the books being left to Dr. Sedgewick
and Mr. Soward.
Mr. Turnbull, the President, closed
the meeting by making a spirited
speech in support of an Arts '26 party.
It was decided that partners s«ould
be drawn for, and that the party
should be held on February 1.

THE VICTORY
The Varsity Senior B basketball
team added another win to their credit
when they defeated the Rowing Club
Ave at the Normal gym. on Saturday
night 40-11. The game was fast and
the Rowing Club played a better game
than the ^core would indicate. Some
good combination was displayed especially by the Varsity who repeatedly worked the ball right under the
basket where Henderson and Arkley
seldom failed to seore. Henderson
played a stellar game on the forward
line, his long reach enabling him to
drop in fourteen field baskets.
The Teams Were:
Rowing Club:—C. Boyd (5), H.
James, R. Emerson (4), S. Allan (2),
Smith.
Varsity:—H. Arkley (12), H. Henderson (28), Newby (1), Mackay (1),

THE DEFEAT
The Westminster "Y" defeated the

when Wilkinson netted a neat field
basket, and Varsity kept the high end
of the score throughout the first
period which ended 8-7.
In the second half Varsity started
with a rush and gained a lead of three
points but Westminster rallied and
evened the score. Varsity again rushed and with five minutes to go were
leading by three points when Don
Mackay was ruled off by the personal
foul rule. He was replaced by Cecil
Newby but the change enabled Westminster to tie the score which at full
time was 21-21.

played in which Varsity was held
scoreless, while the "Y" checked up
six more points.

'DEBATES
A great many students in the University take a very trifling interest,
or none at all, in such an activity as
debating. It is only necessary to attend a meeting ot one of the literary
societies and note the sparse attendance to obtain proof of this.
A University ought to be above all
the representative of progressive
thought and free criticism, and an institution where problems of present
interest can be freely discussed.
What better opportunity is there for
such discussion than on the debating
platform? Also those students who
cannot derive direct advantage from a
debate by participating, can at least
obtain a clearer and more intelligent
conception of the question at issue by
listening to the arguments of others,
and to the statistics presented in support of them. To the less industrious,
or to those whose time is fully occupied with other matters, debates
ought to have a considerable appeal
in this respect, since many hours of
reading is done for them, and presented in a concise and forceful form, thus
allowing them to gain some idea of
a subject they might otherwise have
known little about.
Moreover the necessity of supporting the debating teams to-morrow cannot be too greatly emphasized. Last
year the splendid support of the student body did much to win the International Debate; and it is only natural
that representatives of this University should strive to make their arguments more effective and convincing,
when they feel that a large gathering
of fellow students is depending on
them, and is confident that they will
come out victorious  in the  contest.
\^   MAJOR ATHLETICS
The 'week-end victory at Victoria
signifies that the McKechnie Cup will
be on exhibition next year among the
Varsity display of silverware. By
holding the Vancouver Rep. team to a
draw on Christmas Day the team proved that its claim to the leadership of
the league could not be successfully
disputed. The Victoria game finally
established this claim. No one was
doubtful about the result, but the
laurels were not won by our men without a strenuous fight. Besides congratulations to the McKechnie Cup squad
on their final victory we wish to extend sympathy to Gen Ternan who
was deprived of the rightful due of
the victorious captain—the chance to
lead   his   men   over   the   last   enemy
fortification.
On Saturday the First Division Soccer team will play what will probably
be the deciding game in the Mainland
Cup series. They are matched against
the strongest team in the league and
ihe game, though not a final play-off,
is consequently of great importance.
There will be two deciding factors in
ihe game,—the quality of our team's
pay, and the support from the Var-
"■ity rooters. How the players will
struggle for the victory we are certain of. It is the encouragement and
help that the students are going to
give them that is the vital question.
This is the share of the contest left
by the team to the rest of the students. How will that share be borne
on Saturday?
At this time we may take brief
notice of one or two phases, not generally stressed, of the work done by tne
McKechnie Cup and First Division
Soccer players. These men are doing
more to 'e'ducate" Vancouver into a
university town, where college demonstrations of all kinds will be set
down at their true value, than any
other organizations on the campus.
They are also taking a major part in
solving one of the most difficult problems confronting the University at
present,—to make the citizens of the
province realize the value of physical
and athletic training. One of the chief
considerations that should be borne
in mind is the personal sacrifices
cheerfully undergone by these players
to attain these enviable results.

ARTS MEN'S MEETING
On Friday last a meeting of the
A. M. U. S. was held in the Auditorium. Mr. Logan, the Honorary President, addressed the society, and urged
that the A. M. U. S. should take an
even more active part in Varsity life
than it does at present. Mr. Logan
expressed his approval of the Student
Relief campaign and rapidly enumerated some of the difficulties encountered by students in European countries.
Mr. Bill McKee, the President of the
A. M. U. S., announced that the Arts
Sn.oker would take place on Feb. 8.
He requested that all Arts men turn in
their fees as soon as possible in order
to pay for the splendid entertainment
which is being provided.
Moscow, Idaho—The Women's
League gave a dance a short while
ago. The girls invited the men,
| bought the tickets, arranged the programmes and did all the honours.
Quite a snappy idea for Leap Year.
Willamette University—The Freshman class has chosen, as it's first gift
to the university, to donate a cement
walk    leading    to     the    gymnasium.
Bright thought for Freshmen at
Point Grey.
Willamette University—The monthly flunk list has been posted, serving
as a gentle reminder to all students
whose work has not been up to standard. Each "fiunkee" must interview
the president within a  week.

Wftien the Gang Went
With the Birds
BY A   PEACE   LOVING   CITIZEN
The Victoria boat sailed at 11:45.
On board the "gang" matched for
berths, all except Val's tactful stateroom mate. He took the upper. Naturally no one slept. Besides, the
whistle had the whooping cough—■
rather inconsiderate. Eight bells and
every one was on hand for breakfast.
Everyone gave the afternoon score
the lie-"Ate Nothing." After eating
breakfast for a couple of hours the
team changed restaurants and called
it lunch. Another enjoyable hour was
spent mopping up beefsteaks.
Someone must have reminded the
"fang" that they were really in town
to play rugby. Donning their "clothes
de guerre" the squad were wafted
noisily to the Willows. Johnny McLean insisted on waking Victoria
with the car whistle. This probably
accounts for the numbers at the
game.
The fun began. For some forty
minutes there was a "ripping, tearing,
smashing sort of scene." Near the
end of the pleasant little murder orgy
some forwards engineered a series of
snappy passes and Pete Price landed
on the promised land.    Score, 3-0.
During half time Victoria must
have concluded that the sport was a
bit tame—aparently Varsity had too.
The second half looked like the concentrated essence of the "Great War."
Some not only had murder in their
eye but death in their feet. Here and
there was noticed a mass formation—
the forwards had corralled a "tank."
The three-quarter line secured an
opening for the teams, Mercury and
Val converted.   Score 8-0.
To concentrate the evening, dinner
at the Pacific for 'twenty, toasts,
speeches of appreciation to Jim Scott,
hope for Geh's speedy recovery, oil-
liards and dancing, etc. All the next
day the main work was replaying
every minute part of the game. After
doing this thoroughly, the game was
dissected and analyzed but no one
seemed to want to improve on It.
There was one unanimous decision—
they were glad that it was over.

IF  ROLFE   HAD  EDITED THE
RUBAIYAT OF OMAR  KHAYYAM.
(With  apologies  to  Rolfe,   Clark,
Steevens,  B.M.,  etc.)
Why, be this Juice the growth of God,
who dare
Blaspheme  the   twisted   tendril   as   a
Snare?
A Blessing, we should use it, should
we not?
And if a curse,—why then, who set
it there?
I   must   abjure   the   Balm   of   Life,   I
must,
Scared    by   some   After-Reckoning
ta'en on trust,
Or lured with  hope of some Diviner
Drink
To fill the  Cup when crumbled
into Dust.
1. Juice—There is now no doubt
that the Juice referred to was some
form of intoxicating liquor, probably
wine.
2. Snare — Alcoholic liquors, are
poisonous, and as such are snares.
"The poet is here reproducing the erroneous argument that since God had
made the wine, he intended Man to
drink it. The fallacy is apparent. The
Almighty did not make the wine. He
created only the grape, and the evil
in Man has made of it the vile, poisonous, concoction called Wine.    (Clarke)
3. Balm of Life—A well-known
drink, of high alcoholic content.
Clarke states it to be rum, but Steevens says that there is no evidence of
this in the text.   Abjure....to swear off.
4. Trust—The system of having
drinks charged and paid for later.
5. Diviner Drink—Probably a fanciful name.—it does not appear on the
Liquor Control Board Price List.
6. Cup—A mixed metaphor....Wine is
drunk from glasses, not Cups.
7. Dust—"Here the poet has admitted the weakness of his entire Case
for the notorious drink trade. He
concedes that, if persisted in, the
drink habit can lead to but one thing—
a filthy and miserable death, when the
only thing left of the unfortunate victim of the terrible fluid is Dust.
(Steevens).

First Soccer Team
/Plays Great Game
Wonderful   Exhibition   of   Goal-
tending by Mosher
A large crowd of fans witnessed
one of the greatest exhibitions or defensive play ever seen on local fields
when a crippled Varsity first soccer
team held the fast stepping North
Shore Elks to a scoreless draw, at
Athletic Park on Saturday. Five of
the Varsity team were on the sick
list, Emery, Wilkinson, Huestis, Ternan, and Bryndolson, and the collegians were obliged to field only ten
men, as they had no more players
signed. One of these ten men, Bobby
Jackson, was not in a fit condition to
play and was forced to retire in the
second  period.
The Elks' sharpshooters rained
shots is on the Varsity goal, but they
were unable to beat Harry Mosher
who turned in a stellar performance
and saved the day for his team.
Mosher stopped the most, impossible
shots that came in at every angle,
and then capped his performance by
saving a penalty in the last ten minutes of play, for which display he got
a tremendous ovation from the spectators.
Mosher was not, alone in his glory,
however, Baker, Crute, and Phillips,
broke up innumerable rushes of the
Elks' vanguards, whilst Varsity's new
left half, Ledingham, scintillated, ana
Buckley worked had at the right half
position.
Jock Lundie and Scotty Deans
worked like trojans to get the ball up
into enemy teritory, but with little
success. Longley, the opposing custodian, only handled the ball on two
or three occasions. Varsity confined
all its efforts to keeping the Elks
from scoring, and succeeded admirably
After the oranges, the Elk's vanguard redoubled its efforts to score
and looked as if they were going to
bulge the not on several occasions,
but the TJ.B.C. defence was too much
for them. Smith, the Elk's inside
right, caused Mosher considerable
anxiety, but Heggie was playing an
unbeatable game. It was a sight for
sore eyes to see the diminutive Scotty Deans tearing into big Jim Wilson
, of the North Shore eleven. Bobby
! Jackson endeared himself to his teammates and fans alike, when he gamely turned out to play in spite of a
badly wrenched knee which has kept
him on the sidelines all season.
In the last ten minutes of play
Crute had the misfortune to handle
the sphere in the dreaded area, for
which, referee Marshall awarded a penalty. This decision was not popular
with the fans, as it was an accidental
foul. Russell took the kick for the
suburbanites and drove it hard and
straight at Mosher, who stopped lr and
nonchantly picked it from the feet
of the oncoming forwards, whilst
seven hundred fans held their bieath.
The whistle went for time with the
Elks still pressing. Vasity line up: —
Mosher, Crute, Baker, Buckley, Phillips, Ledingham, Shields, Lundie,
Deans, Jackson.
I AFTER SUNSET
I lie with love along a willow wall,
The   swaying  saplings   sweep   tiheir
pendant  sprays
Of softness past my cheek.    Warm
fragrancies
Breathe   from   the    rose-flared    hills,
and faintly fall
Upon   the    enamoured    winds.     And,
crowning all,
Day's   burnished    aureole    of    light
hair lays
In circling charms upon   the  mountain beauties,
Till   envious   even   kiss   with   shades
nocturnal.
Yet  still I  lean with  love  above  the
stream;
Our mirrored faces meet in the long
light
The white moon casts.    Then with
the  waning  night
They,   waking,   pass.     Even   as   some
haunting dream
Of Death,  framed  as  the  .shapes  of
Life we know,
Lingers,    ere    mystery   dim  its    reflected glow.

Player's Club to
Give Spanish Play
ThelPlayers Club has announceu as
its final/decision for the Spring Play,
"TheJ^orld and His.Wife." This is
an"adaptation made by Charles Frederic Nirdlinger of the masterpiece ot
the great Spanish dramatist, Jose
Echegaray. The play as it is written
in Spanish is called "El Gran Galeoto."
chegaray is one of the foremost
mathematicians of Spain and also a
prominent statesman, having been at
different times minister of education,
and minister of finance. He is undoubtedly one of the three greatest
dramatists of the time in Spain; his
work is also popular in other countries. This play, "The World and His
Wife" shows the evil of gossip, and
conveys a salutary lesson to all who
see it. The selection will doubtless
appeal to many of the adherents of the
Players Club who have insisted that
something different be attempted this
year. Although it is a play of a
serious nature, it has many delightful
touches of comic relief. However, for
effect, it depends largely on a series
of increasingly powerful situations
and a general dramatic sweep up to a
very effective climax. Some of the
older students will remember that
when Mr. William Favershaw visited
the University he highly recommended
this play and termed it "the best constructed play in which he had ever
acted."
The performance will be given
about the middle of March in the
Orpheum Theatre, as last year.
There are nine characters in the
play, for which tryouts were held on
Tuesday afternoon.

Mr. Beckett meant well, but what
he, as a lecturer, meant was not what

he spoke of the social disadvantages

he tried to explain, what happened?
Did the class nobly keep silent and
serious when our worthy pedagogue
shoved in the other foot? No, they
did not, but they would have at the

Green Meadow have planned to meet
you here today and tell you a great
secret. See, here comes Rastus the
Rooster, already."
"But," said Maud with tears in her
voice, "father said I had to rake the
meadow sweet with hay, and if I
don't get it done it'll be a case of "IT
MIGHT HAVE BEEN."
"Let the hay go to the Devil,"
screached Goofy in his timid little
voice.
"Still doing the sweet old stunt on
the meadow Maud?" crowed Rastus
the Rooster, coming up to the two.
"Cholly the Chicken ain't here yet, is
she?" he continued, winking slyly and
cocking his head to one side.
"Here I am, here I am," cackled
that young lady scurrying forward
and flapping her wings. "I've just
been laying in the hay that Maud has
been raking so sweet."
"What a lovely little flapper you
are," chuckled Rastus as he strutted
toward her. "Your beak is like a rosebud. Come give me your beak, my
dear."
"Not now, you horrid old thing,"
clucked Cholly, "something in the air
tells me that either Skinny the Skunk,
or Paderisky the Polecat is not far
off.    O, yoo hoo."
Skinny the Skunk came slinking on.
"I'm here, I'm here," he told them,
without speaking a word. "Maud,"
he cried in his impatient voice, "I do
wish you'd stop raking that meadow
sweet with nay when I'm around.
What's the good? Where's ah the
crowd? I've been ill, and I'm not
strong enough to stand around here
all day." Having spoken these words
he crept over to a pile of sweet hay
and stood fretting and fuming.
Buzz, buzz, buzz, and just then who
should come buzzing in but Hercules
the Horse-fly, who flew over and lit
on that fair hand of Maud's which
had given the judge a swig o' water.
Next week's story:—Hercules the
Horse-fly tells what Farmer Allan's
boy and Trowser, his dog, are up to.
Hotelers Defeat
Varsity Seconds
Although the unconquered Hotel-
men took the second team into camp
to the tune of 4-1, the team gave one
of the gamest displays of the week.
Ross Davidson played a fine game in
goal, and he deserves great credit for
keeping the score so low, for nothing
beat him save the impossible. Unuer-
wood, the relief back, was another
hero, and Disney and Evans worked
very hard.
The Hotelmen started with a bang,
and Ross was busy from start to finish. Many corners he conceded, but
few goals. Following steady pressure,
only occasionally broken by a Varsity
attack, Rennie opened the scoring on
a lucky shot that bounded in from the
post. U. B. C. worked hard, and attacked strongly, but soon the Hotel
came back, and finally beat Davidson
with a hot shot. Pressure continued
till the whistle. After the interval,
the league leaders resumed the offensive but Varsity withstood their
attacks, and the forwards, by dint ot
sheer hard work, were giving the
strong offensive plenty of worry. Two
corners were conceded in succession
but were fruitless. Then following
a clever bit of combination on the left
wing, Martin scored with a fine effort. However, although still game,
Varsity's bolt was shot, and the
league leaders added another brace ot
goals before the final whistle.
The Team:—Davidson, Disney, Underwood, Gibbs, Demidoff, Fanning,
Hope, Newcombe, Cant, Martin and
Evans.

Odium Gives Address
[/ On Holy Land
Students who attended last week's
meeting of the .Institute, were treated
to a delightful lecture by Proi^sbo*
E. Odium, on travels in the Holy Land,
and in other countries of thv old
world.
The speaker prefaced his talk with
reminiscences of his recent lecture
tour in England, and then went on to
speak of his experiences in the Channel Islands, and of journeys through
the Pyrenees, and in Italy, Egypt,
Arabia and  Palestine.
Prof. Odium dwelt particularly on
Jerusalem and other cities of Palestine. At Jaffa, the biblical Joppa, he
was much surprised at the extent of
the orange industry, annual shipments
of this fruit to the extent of a million cases being credited to the port
at that time.
Reference was also made to the
great hollow in the land surface of
Upper Palestine known as the Valley
of the Jordan. This narrow, landlocked depression, which is partly occupied by the Dead Sea, has an average "elevation" of 1300 ft. below sea-
level, and is known to geologists as a
rift valley, since it has been formed
by the fracture and sinking of a block
of the earth's Crust.
