Pertinent Particles
From th PIP A.
t n •
Several questions relating to College Journalism were discussed at the
recent conference of the Pacific Inter-
collegiate Press Association, accord-
ting to word received from King Kllk-
ln,, Secretary-Treasurer of the Asso-
elatlon. Thla year the annual conference was held in Berkeley, California.
« Bxoerpts trom the report of the conference follow;
, | "There occurred a discussion of the
publication in college newspapers ot
Mampus scandals. It was pointed out
that publication of these matters was
titifled. Metropolitan and town news-
pers will print them sooner or later
d it is far beter that the facta be
recorded in a conservative and truthful fashion flrst by the campus newspaper. Another opinion was that
stories, relatively unimportant and calculated to injure a person'8 reputation
should be disregarded."
"It was decided that the central
office of the Association at fierkeley
be made a business office as well as
a news office, and that the Executive-
Secretary, whenever possible solicit
accounts for all member papers."
"It waa moved, seconded and
oarrled that tha Paclflo Intercollegiate
Press Aosoolatlon go on reoord aa
opposing attempts of the governing
bodies of atudent associations to dictate the policies of student newspapers. The resolution adopted follows:
'It Is the belief et the Psoitis Inter-
eelleglata Press Association that atudent newspapers are the organs of
atudent eclf*government and not organs of the oleoted representatives of
the etudente. It decries attempts ef
student executive eommltteee end
councils to dictate to student editors
tha petioles of their editorial columns.
It believes that the editorial column
should reflect the opinion of the editor
and net the opinion of any other
Individual er group of Individuals'."
"Moved, seconded and carried, that
the P. 1. P. be glveu fifteen percei.t
commission on all advertising sold bv
it for member papers, ten percent to
go to the Association treasury, Ave
percent to be given to the solicitor."
"Moved, seconded and carried that
the P.I.P. deplores the election of college newspaper editors by popular
vote ot staffs or student bodies, as
being a method of selection likely to
foster Inefficiency through favoritism
and politics."
"Moved, seconded and carried that
the P.I.P. go en record as favoring tha
appointment ef editors by their predecessor*, with ratlfleatlen by an editorial beard compeoad ef executive
members of the staffs, and the selection of men on the ba«la of (1) Personal ability and good Judgment; (2)
Record of service; and (3) Ability to
secure the co-operation of the staff."
Sbakesptartin Actor
AMrtsses Studtnts
Archibald flower of the Stratford
onAvon Oompany addressed members
of the student body Wednesday noon
in Ap. He. 100.   The leoture formed
Cart of the program adopted by the
Iterary and Solentlflc executive this
year of securing speakers of note to
come before the students.
Dr, Sedgewick, In Introducing the
speaker, reminded hla audience of the
infrequenoy with which they see
Shakespeare well played in Vancouver, and of the opportunity now to
see authoritative presentations.
Mr, flower first described the Stratford theatre, whieh is endowed and Is
unique in being the only theatre In the
British empire to operate under a
royal charter. It is In no sense a
commercial undertaking; contributions to it are entirely voluntary and
no one derives a profit.
The aim of the Stratford Players is
to star William Shakespeare, and not
Individual actors or costumes or
scenery. Thus in coming almost directly under the influence of Shakespeare the actors require a sense of
teatn play and learn to sink their
own egotism for the good Of the
Whole, This is Illustrated by John
Hayes who in "Hamlet" takes the
much-coveted leading part, but in
"Th* Merry Wives of Windsor is
content to do his bit In the obscure
role of Dr. Cains.
Today It Is difficult to obtain actors
who can speak with a correct diction,
end yet who give the rhythm of Shakespeare's lines. The present fashion
in the theatre for naturalness in
speech has been obtained in many,
cases at the expense of distinctness.
With the Stratford players, however,
it has been a particular aim to secure
both distinctness and naturalness.
Shakespeare knew more about stage
craft than he is usually given credit
for, stated Mr. Flower, He was really
a wlsard in planning the sequence of
scenes in his plays so that the stage
settings would come In the most natural order.
One reason for Shakespeare's universal appeal Is his knowledge ot a wide
variety of subjects. People whose
tastes range from horses to golf, find
that he possessed a sympathetic understanding and keen appreciation.
If one Is inclined to be sceptical of
the latter instance, what could be
more conclusive proof than the quotation "cursed be the hand that cut
these holes."
In closing, Mr. Flower explained
that one of tho chief missions of tK<
Stratford Players is to spread a knowledge of Shakespeare amongst the
average people. To accomplish such
an end and to dispel the illusion of
many that Shakespeare ls a bore, they
are concentrating on his comedies.
Music lovers will learn with pleasure of the noon hour recital to be given next Thursday In the Auditorium
under the Auspices of tne Musical Society of the Unlveralty. The programme has been mado possible by
the generosity of the following artists:
Miss Beth Abernethy (VIollnlBt), Miss

Born In Swltserland, he came

Shortly after his graduation Mr.

College of British Columbia, and,
except for a period of post-graduate study, he has been engaged
in teaching French language
and literature In this Province
ever since.
The late Mr. Chodat, whose
native language was French,
was a most successful teacher,
aud has done much to aid the
standard of Freuch education In
the Province. He was, through-
Out his life, a most devoted and
earnest student, with a keen and
Silt appreciation of literature,
nglish as well as French and
German. He was most success*
tul is impressing his Ideals of
scholarship on his students.
The University, as a whole, and
the Modern Language Department particularly, feels deeply
the loss ot an enthusiastic
worker, and most loyal colleague.
Mr. Chodat returned for »ost-
graduate work to McOlll University from which he obtained the
degree of M. A., at a later
period of his career he spent a
year of study at Harvard from
which he obtained the degree
of M.A. Later he studied for a
year in Paris and only a few
months ago received trom the
French Oovernment a recognition of the work he had done in
French language and literature,

As a young man, Mr. Chodat
excelled In athletic exercises,
was fond of camping and outdoor life and usually Bpent bis
vacation at Gibson's Landing,
where he enjoyed to the full the
sport of rowing and fishing.
The late Professor was highly
esteemed by all his colleagues,
and his premature removal Is
deeply regretted by them. He
In survived by his widow, two
sons aud a daughter, with whom
deep sympathy is felt by their
many friends.
Mr. Chodat was a member of
the Presbyterian Church, and
latterly ot the United Church of
Canada, being connected formerly wtth Chalmers United
Church and with Knox United
Church of Kerrisdale,

Varsity Senior T Hoopsters
Gain Victorjf_Over Province
«.i.c. Mm njHwm sunn ium
Varsity's Senior h basketball team started after Its seoond championship when it defeated tho strong Province squad 17-W on Wednesday night.
The victory was a surprise to many as Varaity presented a weakened ttam
with Strelght out with a twisted knee and Henderson just recovering from
a bad cold.
Varsity started off with Mayers and Horton at forward. MacDonald and
McBwen, guards and Henderson going centre. This combination seemed to
work well, Henderson getting most of the tip-offs and starting the piay off.
Province had Us last years' line-up of Hall, Moffat, Henry, Barbtne, Bryson
and Newcombe with the addition of Bill Thompson of last year's Vanity
American Dramatist
"Bugane O'Neill Is the greatest of
American Dramatists and has great
possibilities as a future writer," declared Stewart Held when he gave a
paper on lugone O'Neill at a meeting of the Letters Club, Tuesday night.
The meeting was held at the home ot
Prof, and Mrs. t. O. C. Wood, Western Parkway.
"This author Is most powerful tn
tragedy," said the speaker. "He portrays feeling and passion In facing the
vital problems of life, and Is In conception a giant."
Paying tribute to the author's love
of truth and his straight-forward
manner of writing, Mr. Reid excused
the lack of humor In O'Neill's work
because ot hla earnestness, and his
"almost fierce vigor," "O'Neill is an
artist with a high aim," he said.
Mr. Reid dealt with tho author's
life, showing how his wandering experiences and sea life had influenced
his work. "Actual experiences," he
said, "are at the root of O'Neill's
Prof. T. Larsen, honorary president
ot the Club, criticised the paper and
paid tribute to the arrangement of
The statement "that O'Neill gives
promise of being the Shakespeare of
America" caused much discussion at
the conclusion of the paper, as did
the claim that O'Neill lacked humor
as a result of his earnestness.
Plays of the author which received
special consideration were: "Beyond
the Horizon;" "Anna Christie;" "The
Hairy Ape;" "The Great God Brown,"
"Strange Interlude."
Many Trqick Stars

At Meet
The big drawing card ot the annual
Indoor track meet this year is Percy
Williams who Is to run 50 yards.
This will provide en excellent opportunity for seeing the Vancouver flash
In action and a treat is in store for
A new Innovation this year will be
the incluaton of several events for
women. This Is the first year In
which women have been allowed to
compete ln the indoor track meet and
will probably produce a surprise with
their ability ou the cinder path.
In oo.er to be more central, the
meet this year Is to be held ln the
down-town Horse-Show Building and
a record crowd will consequently be
expected. As usual the meet will be
conceded to the Freshmen, although
Arts '31, winners of last years' meet
will be out In full force.
The program this year includes
many events in which a great number of stars will be competing. In
the sprints are: Williams. Gaul and
Harvey. The 220 and 440 will bring
forth such stars as Thornbur. Roberts,
Torry, while the 880 will Include
Chappell, Dunn. Selby. and Root, The
longer events such as the mile, will
feature Selby, Dunn. Chappell, Ham
mitt, and Terry. Although tn the past
the pole-vaulters have been rather
weak. Dirom. Alpen and Root are out
to set a new mark. Shields and several others are ogatu competing tor
the broad-jump which Is expected to
furnish more thrills. New heights
will be reached when Chappell, Thornbur and Fell leave the terra firms

his eye trained on the basket and
sank 7 out ot 12 of these free shots.
Besides these he sank 8 Held baskets for an individual total of 18.,
Wally Is hitting his stride now and
Is about the hardest man to stop iii

Henderson at centre did good work
directing the team and breaking up
Province's rushes, besides making
4 points. MacDonald at guard is
much Improved over last year and ls
going better every time out. He held
his check well and ran in eight points
on his own. McEwen at guard turned
in a good game as did young Horton,
who was showing his right to a regular forward position. The team as
a whole looks good for its second
consecutive championship.
The teams:—Province: Hall (11),

The fifteen players who will wear
the blue and gold In tbe Bngilsh Rugby game against the Firemen, which
is scheduled for 2 o'clock Saturday at
Brockton Point, have aot yet been
chosen It Is expected, however, that
the team will be muoh the same as
the combination which defeated Bdmonton on Thanksgiving. It ao, Varsity should have little difficulty in bettering, by a win. Its standing tn the
Miller Cup series.
The Firemen are a heavier team who
play a hard tacking, rushing game,
the forwards packing around tha
scrum and using their weight to advantage. On a wet, sloppy day, a
condition which lu not unlikely, the
Firefighters are a hard team to down.
However, the U.B.C. squad are hoping
that there will be fine weather on
Saturday, ensuring firm turf on the
oval. This will give the faster college
team a decided edge over the heavier
but slower Firemen. Rain or shine
the game will be an exciting tussle
with plenty of thrills,
A'tor the smoke has cleared and the
bones and gore from the Varslty-Flre-
men battle swept away the league
leaders, Meralomas and Ex-KIng
Oeorge will meet. Thia promises to
be a great game as the teams aro very
evenly matched, each having an enviable record. This double header is

Now that the first term at University is well under way,
several men and women students will probably be receiving
Invitations to loin fraternities and sororities.   Those invited to
Sit) Will do well to consider seriously before accepting any such
Exclusive and secret organisations have a glamour attached
to them which may appear attractive on the surface, and no
doubt the sooial advantages of "brotherhoods" are not to be
scorned. Tho faot that in such an organisation lt is possible
for a congenial group of young people to gather on the basis
of friendship, unhampered by the inevitable dashing Interests
of a wider group, is a benefit not to be Ignored.
On the other hand, the varied interests of the wider group
are bound to meet somewhere, sometime. It is for the individual to decide whether It would be better to meet and understand
as equal friends, the representatives of varied interests in the
beginning, or to ignore these interest until the inevitable meeting
occurs. Unquestionably the influence of fraternities and sororities tends to promote specialised friendship at the expense of
Seneral friendship. This is simply because the Interests and ideals
f non-fraternity people do not receive the same natural consideration that Is given to those of fraternity members, as a result
of closer contact between members within the organisation.
Moreover, individuals outside these organizations oan not give
fraternity members the same consideration that they give to
one another when they are prevented from so doing by an artificial barrier of reserve.
Before joining a fraternity or sorority, prospective members
should ask themselves if by so doing they are really promoting
friendship In the aggregate. Perhaps as Individuals they will
feel tne world is too large a place ln which to let their friendship
run riot, or perhaps they will feel their friendship is too big to
be clothed by an exclusive artificial organization.
At any rate the individual must dispose of his own friendship,
whether he be in a fraternity or not. The question is, will the
fraternity help more than it will hamper him?
—M. D.
We do not always wish to be pointing out to the students
matters of common politeness, as we ourselves do not pretend to
be a walking book of etiquette. Nevertheless it does seem necessary to ask once more that the members of the student body
repay the courtesy of visiting lecturers at the University by a
like courtesy in permitting them to give their address without
disturbance. Twice this term we have been fortunate in having
special addresses from interesting visitors, and each time there
has been neither a full attendance nor punctuality. The sponsors of these lectures make it perfectly clear that they are
scheduled for noon time, but even go there is continual interruption. Visitors must indeed question the manners of the U. B. C.
students, as they watch people either file into the room the whole
time they are speaking, or else listen to continuous thumping on
the door if someone has had the presence of mind to lock it. We
hope in future that students will refrain from the discourtesy
displayed in the past.

AT the Grand Central station, New York, there are
. sometimes 600 to 800 persons waiting in line to
buy tickets, To provide ticket office* and sellers for
such rush periods would entail an expense which
would increase the cost of service enormously.
There is no waiting in line for dearie light. We
must be prepared for the maximum demand.
Catering in this way to such demand is costly because
extra equipment, extra generators, transformers and
transmission line capacity must be provided. Such
service is just as expensive as providing more ticket
sellers in the Grand Central station would be.

Feature Editor:
Dear Sir:
I herewith submit a belated book-
review of an Interesting and boring
Science book:
"A Text-book of Modem Science"—
Dr, Badley Dunn (Stodder & Houghton, |9.50) Ih ono of the mottt remarkable scientific books ever published.
It ls a marvellous contribution to contemporary thought. 'The discerning
reader will realize that the author ls
well qualified to express opinions on
his subjects.   Some excerpts follow:
Qualitative Analysis: (1) Dissolve
as much of a powder as you can get
on a coin In exactly 10 c.c. of cold
water. Pour suddenly Into a white-
hot crucible. If the crucible breaks,
proceed with the next experiment, as
crucibles are hard to get.
Exp. (2)—Dissolve a large piece of
silver (about 17 lbs,) In strong acid
(stronger acid Is preferable). Add
two litres ot platlnic chloride, and
pour down the sink. A slight noise
trom the chemistry department Indicates the presence of Mr. Allardyce.
Confirmatory test for Mr. Allardyce:
Mix up the weights in the balance-
Classic Experiment of Descartes—
Into a carefully dried and weighed
beaker, pour drop by drop 100 c.c. of
distilled water. Boll until all Is evaporated. Hewetgh, and If any difference In weight Is noted, bear tn mind
that this Ih strictly confidential.
ToMlng a Galvanometer- Apply a
200-volt I'D across the terminals. A
cloud of light blue smoke, accompanied hy the smell of burning silk, will
show that you have ruined the Instrument to a very high order of accuracy.
If no smoke appears, the galvanometer
was burned out anyway so that nothing has been lost,
Surveying Notes — Corrections for
Aslmuth and Bismuth: Astmuth ts
corrected for by taking the angle of
Incidence of the sun at time of total
eclipse, and multiplying by the root-
mean-si|uare velocity of the bubble-
tube. Bismuth is corrected for in the
usual way.

A muffled figure in a tali silk
hat crouched In a doorway ln
Pekln Alley, the most mys'-er*
lous street In Chinatown.
Here and there shadowy figures flitted past, while tn the
distance passed a long chain of
yelling savages celebrating a
Theatre Night. A long low limousine flashed by, bearing Shue
Moy resplendent in a red neck*
The muffled figure glanced at
his watch as the stroke of mid*
night boomed from a nearby
clock. Me was none other than
Oscar Scrlbblewell disguised as
a gentloman.
So this was 1813 Pekln Alley.
As he watched the sinister
doorway, two stealthy figures
crept behind him from a nearby alley. Both were hooded,
and one carried a sand-hag.
while the other bore a sack and
a coll ot rope.
Scrlbblewell bent down to
look through the keyhole, as ls
customary with special Ubyssey
reporters. A muffled thud, a
myriad ot stars, a groan and
black unconsciousness over
whelmed hint I

Oscar Scrlbblewell
Oscar Scrlbblewell opened his
eyes and felt like a fraternity
pledge the morning after.
Chop Suey, Fan-tan and other
perfumes of the mystic East
were wafted to his rapidly returning senses, and be could
vaguely discern a scene of Or
Intal Splendour.
"The Thoth Club!" lie murmured confusedly.
He became aware of a tall
figure clad in yellow robe and
a B.A. hood standing over him.
"So you are waking up," said
his captor. "Pretty good for a
Science man. Do you know
who I am?"
"I'll blto," replied the reporter gloomily.
"I am Dr. Chang Suey, B.A.,
Ph.D., B.V.D., 8.O.S., of Canton
University," was the reply, "I
am the Chinese Napoleon, Mussolini, ln my laudlble ambition to
conquer the world I used my vast
Chang Susy
secret organisation to avail myself of the Time Transformer.
But you have crossed my path.
You must die—unless you bring
me the antidote when lt Is Invented."
I am a Canadian Rugby player. I
play not only quarterback but all
those difficult positions of way-back,
draw-back and horse-back. To the
unlnltlate in Canadian Rugby the term
"horse-back" may sound queer but to
those who really know, it's the place
where the buoka come In.
At my flrst practise I donned a pair
of padded plus-fours, a yoke on my
shoulders to protect me from getting
a cold In the neck and a helmet like
an Inverted soup bowl, that contained
holes for breathing and seeing. "Now,"
said the coach, after 1 had dressed,
"tear onto the grid and smear a
couple fellows. Show me how you
can taokle."
"Yes, sir," I replied, determined not
to be bewildered by this technical
Jargon, "you want me to tear onto
the grid and smear a coupla fellows
and show you how I can tackle."
"Yes," answered the coach.
"Oh," said I, "you want me to "
"That's enough of that!" yelled the
coach, "You're a player not a cheering
That incident Just goes to show how
quick I am at picking up things ( not
necessarrlly my own). Well I went out
to the Held and took my place ln the
lines where two groups of men kneel*
ed facing one another. "What a hard
game," I thought to myself, "They're
too tired to stand."
Then someone start chattering "68,
44, 71, 68—"
"Wait!" I shouted, "I oan't add that
fast." But no one paid any attention,
Instead a player in the opposing line
reached out with his band and sat me
down. A most ungentlemanly procedure since he did not even warn me.
In the next down I pushed him in
tho face. This went on tor two hours
until I became irritated and? told the
referee that a fellow whom I had
never seen before was trying to pick
a fight. The ref. waved me from the
field but I knew I bad won the fight
since the other fellow wouldn't stand
up to me.
Well, anyways, I turned out for a
lot of practises so as to make the
"Large Four" team. I always steeled
myself with the resolve to get a letter.
I became so good at the game that
they let me help with the reports
on the "Ubyssey." All those periods
you see at the end of the sentences
are mine, because I wrote them all.
As for the games, themselves, I had
to quit because I had received my
letter. It was not for rugby but from
the Dean.

Next Saturday Varsity's struggling
Second Soccerites will be stacked up
against the league leading Hastings
Athletic crew.
The college pig-skin chasers have
not as yet turned in a win, but, never*
theless, they have played some fine
games, aud ill-luck seems to have
fastened on to their trail.
To-morrow, according to form, the
Blue and Oold squad do not have
much chance against suoh formidable
opponents. Nevertheless the team
will enter the game determined to win
and can be counted on to give their
lofty opponents a run for their points.
The team has not yet been decided on
but all the battle-scarred veterans,
Such as England, Miles, Sanderson
and McKellar will be on hand.

Last Monday the track team of the
Anglican Theological College distinguished Itself by winning the Beecher
Cup for the annual flvo-mlle race at
Hastings Park. Members of the teum
were Hammett, Thaln, King, Cock-
burn, Ward, Hughes, and Klnley. Tlilii
Is the same team that chased Science
to the wlunlng-post In the recent Arts
'30 race, beating the Arts men by
four points. The cup will be presented at a meeting next Wednesday
night, when the trophies for the Anglican meet are to be distributed.
Women's events In the Indoor Track
Meet to be held November 21 are high
Jump, hundred yards dash and relay.
Teams for the relay wtll be entered
by each year. All those wishing to
take part or who could be prevailed
upon to take part, should see their
athletic representatives immediately
and should sign the notice on the
Arts notlceboard.
Varsity's women's grass hockey
team wll) clash with Normal on Saturday morning at Connaught 1'nrk ut

Next Wednesday afternoon at 4 p.m.
they meet North Van. In a practice
match at Connaught Park.
The meeting of the Disarmament
Committee has heen postponed till one
week from to-day. This course hits
been adopted by the Executive of the
Debating Union In order that the
members of the Union shall have adequate time to prepare for the meeting.
The regular meeting of the Union will
take place on Monday at three o'clock
In Arts 100.
The Ice Hockey Club Is off to a
good start this year. A team is entered in the Vancouver Amateur Ice
Hookey Leaguo and the chances of
Varsity coming out on top are better
than they have been since 1921,' that
memorable year when the B. C. Championship was captured.
There are about twenty men turning out thia year and they are all
fairly good, In the opinion ot Bill Solders, coach and president of the club.
Competition is keen for the position
of goalie with such men out as Willis,
who learned the game in Heglna, La-
londe of Vancouver and Solders who
played In Port Arthur. For the two
defense positions there are four good
men out, Rhodes who hails from Victoria; Fisher, Callen and Macdonald,
who used the stick on the prairie. Ot
thoso the last two are good. Among
the forwards there are live men outstanding, Carswell, Qittus, both from
the prairie: Nollle, Smith and Sim*
onds. The first game of the season
will be an December 10.

Shortly after one o'clock on Tuesday the Arts building was the scene
of the most unusual fights known in
the annals ot McOlll, when the R.V.C.
Sophomores odmtnotered punishment
to Freshettes who refused to wear
the badges of their station. Just
before the close ot the Bnglish lecture
the enemy lay in wait armed with
stern resolve, a number of sponges,
and a pail ot water. Members ot the
opposite sex, anticipating fun, gathered in a crowd behind the fair ones and
waited expectantly. The flrst Freshie
to come through the door, being minus
her bib, received a sponge in the tace
and a kick in the rear, The insulting
treatment was too much and the hold
freshie showed her indignation in the
usual girlish fashion. She was quickly
subdued but a few of her compatriots
who followed were not so easily finished. One poor maiden in particular
being minus bib, black stocking, and
wearing much extra complexion, was
the object of Sophomores wrath. The
tight was short but fierce and the poor
girl emerged an utter wreck.
When all the Freshies had passed
the waiting line they were forced to
proceed en masse towards the gates,
singing a quavering "James McOlll 1"
Here they were stopped and ordered
to give the McGiil yell before dispersing. Gentlemen sympathisers, however who had been trailing along behind decided to come to the aid of
their unfortunate lady friends and
with a mighty shove they drove the
weak ones ahead of them Into the

We notice that a correspondent has
brought up the never-settled subject
of gowns. He says the advantages of
wearing a gown are intangible but
strong. While admitting the latter
we beg to correct him on the former
score. The academic gown is ot considerable use In saving the wear on
one's clothes besides being of use for
polishing one's shoes or wiping pens.
Professors have been known to use
them tor cleaning blackboards even.
Our correspondent says that the
gown would distinguish the upper
years from the Freshmen. Thla certainly Is not the case, There Is no
regulation against the first year students woarlug gowns, and if they were
encouraged to wear them, we think it
would help them to tee! academic,
which would go a long way toward
making them actually so. We are
told that gowns are compulsory at
Oxford and Cambridge, this Includes
the Freshmen of the universities as
well as the upper classmen. The
years are distinguished by a tear up
the hack of the garment, one rent
for each year. (A freshman at Cambridge Is not allowed to speak to an
UPPer year man until he is spoken to
At these older universities, each
college has Its distinguishing mark on
its gown. For instance, Trinity College, Cambridge, has a blue gown,
while Belwyn College gowns are
black with blue trimmings. The University of Aberdeen has bright red
gowns. All the students wear these
gowns of a sensible length. They
Vary from six Inches or from below
the ooat tails to knee length. In this
way they do not dust the stairs on
We are with the correspondent, of
last year In hoping tor more gowns,
especially at meetinga. Some years
ago our worthy Couucll decided that
they would appear clothed in these
garments at meetings. Since then
they have usually made a last minute
search for gowns before the said meetings. This usually rosults In an average two members of the Council finally attending Wearing graduates'
gowns (which they have no right to
do) and an average two appearing In
no gown at all.
We look forward to the day when
every student will wear his gown and
be proud to do so,
