To Study
At Paris
Madge Portsmouth, Recipient
of Scholarship, Leaves
Miss Madge Portsmouth, one of last
year's graduates, has been chosen by
a special committee to go to France
and study at the University of Paris
for the coming academic year 1923-24,
beginning Nov. 4.
The government of the French Republic, anxious to encourage the development of the study of French in
Canada, decided to create a certain
number of bursaries for Canadian stu-1
dents, for the purpose of studying in |
Paris. The bursaries come through
the Consul General of the French Republic in Montreal, and one has been
made available for students of the
University of B. C. The bursary consists of 6000 f. and 1000 f. additional
for travelling expenses, the condition
of the award being that the candidate must have a thorough understanding of the French language.
Throughout her whole University
career Miss Portsmouth has proved
herself to be an extremely capable
student, especially in French, and
there is not the slightest doubt that
she will bring honor to her Alma Mater during the coming year in Paris.
All those who know her testify to her
admirable character and whole-hearted interest in her work. Miss Ports- j
mouth's appointment is looked upon I
with approval both by the students
and the faculty, who hold a high opinion of her ability and deem her most
Academic Record
Miss Portsmouth has a very brilliant
academic record. In her freshman
. year she was awarded the Royal Institution Scholarship for $75 and a $25
open prize was divided between her
and G. B. Riddehough. In 1921 she
won the McGill Graduates' Scholarship of $137.50 and also the University Scholarship of $75 and the Shaw
Memorial Scholarship of $137.50, the
latter two being awarded by reversion
to two other students. Miss Portsmouth graduated last spring with first
class honors in French and was awarded the Alliance Francaise gold medal.
In spite of her first class standing
Miss Portsmouth also took a very
prominent part in college activities.
During her four years at the University she was an active member of the
Players' Club. She took part in the
last spring play and for two years directed the Distribution Bureau. In
the Letters Club she was an outstanding member, and during her third
year made a most able president of
the Women's Literary Society.
Miss Portsmouth learned of her
good fortune on Saturday, and spent
the week-end at her home in Mission.
She was intending to study for her
Master's Degree this year, and was
also teaching a freshman class; but
she will leave on Friday and sail for
France on the Empress of France on
Nov. 10.

Welcome New
On Friday evening the*Players' Club
held their annual reception to welcome the new members. The dance
excelled its former records and was
voted a huge success by all members,
new and old. The delicate light from
Japanese lanterns mixed with the rose
glow from a dainty lattice-work arch,,
gave a lovely softening effect to the
decorations of palms and serpentine.
An alcove in Room Z was made comfortable with rugs and Chesterfields,
while the stage was ornamented with
an arch diffused by blue light.
At the end of the second dance a
short speech was made by Mr. Wood,
in which he mentioned that the former president of the club, Miss Dorothy Adams, has chosen the stage as
her profession, and is playing for two
days in Seattle this week. He suggested that a message of good-will be
sent from the club. The motion was
proposed and  seconded.
Supper being announced, the doors
between the auditorium and Room X
were thrown open, revealing through
a curtain of serpentine tape, the table
beautifully decorated with tulle, chrysanthemums, candlesticks and serpentine. After supper a balloon contest
was held; Miss Isabel Gartshore, as
the lucky winner, being presented
with a box of chocolates.
The faculty were represented by
President and Mrs. Klinck, Mr. and
Mrs. Wood, Dr. and Mrs. Clark, and
Mr. and Mrs. Larsen.
Massey Sees
Future For
New Drama
The fourth game of the season was
played at Con Jones' park, and a battle royal resulted. Last year Varsity
trimmed the Saints to the tune of
three goals to one; this year the
Saints won by a score of two goals
to one—but this was certainly no indication of the trend of the play. The
game was good, exceptionally good;
the exhibition put up by the team being by far the best of the season. Unfortunately, the breaks were against
them, but the display put up went far
to restore the public's opinion of the
prowess of the Blue and Gold squad.
Varsity started off with a rush and
Ternan soon had Wells, the opposing
goalie, in difficulties. One goal did
bulge the net, but the referee ruled
offside. Mid-field play was then the
order of the day, and many pretty
combination plays were in evidence.
The Saints' forward line now began
to bombard Mosher, and Colin Campbell netted the first score of the game
after a series of attempts. Five minutes had scarcely elapsed when a long
pass went out to Freddy Wilson,
standing in a beautiful posilion to
shoot. Mosher's fingers slipped on the
wet ball and the Saints were two up.
Varsity now pressed hard; Wilkinson
hit the upright with a fast shot and
Ternan tried repeatedly to bulge the
The second half opened with the
old Varsity rush in evidence. Many,
many opportunities went to waste, in
fact it was heart-breaking to see a
needed victory simply thrown away.
Ternan, Lundie and Wilkinson tried
repeatedly to break through, but there
was always a hitch. At last Emery
received a pretty pass. For a short
space he dribbled it up the field and
then shot. The ball whizzed between
the tips of the goalie's fingers and
the crossbar—it was one of the neatest goals of the season. From then
until the end of the game the team
played desperately, Crute making the
sixth forward, but another counter
was denied them.
Wilkinson and Ternan played well,
and Lundie proved himself to possess
a fine turn of speed. Phillips, as always, gave of his best, and this applies to the whole defence. Mosher
showed himself to be still the peer of
the local goalies, his saves at times
being wonderful. Shields was watching perhaps the best left-winger in
the league, and he performed a difficult job well.
The line-up was as follows: Mosher,
Baker, Crute, Shields, Phillips, Buckley, Emery, Ternan, Lundie, Wilkinson and Deans.
Patron of Arts Finds Virtues
in Canadian
Under the auspices of the Players'
Club, Mr. Vincent Massey, endower of
Hart House of Toronto, addressed the
student body on Tuesday last. The
speaker was introduced by President
Klinck, who emphasized the fact that
Mr. Massey's interest in drama extended over a long period of years.
He spoke of the beauty of Hart House,
which was given to the University of
Toronto by Mr. Massey, but, he stated
Mr. Massey is more interested in the
achievements of Hart House than in
its architectural beauty.
Mr. Massey opened his address by
a few remarks praising the progress
made by the U. B. C. in recent years,
and expressed the hope that common
interests would form a bond between
the universities of East and West.
He told how Hart House staged eight
plays every season, each play being
of one week's duration. He stated
that Hart House had been compelled
to depart from the strictly amateur
basis, in the case of a few positions
requiring full time work; but that
the players themselves were amateurs
and had to be of considerable ability
because the plays had to pay their
own way. He regretted that Hart
House did not send players on tour

Budgets Passed
By Council
^  Total Grants Exceed
Those of Last
Budgets calling for the expenditure
of $6,359.83 of Alma Mater funds have
been approved by the Students' Council this year. Considerable difficulty
has been encountered in reducing the
total amount to this sum, which represents an advance over last year's
budgets of about $400. The chief aim
of the Council has been to keep the
grants given to the various associations as nearly as possible the same
as those of last year. This required
rather drastic reductions in some
cases, and called for careful consideration in order that no discrimination might be shown. The budgets as
finally approved stand:—

One glimpse at the gathering at the
summer home of Miss Phyllis Edgell,
Saturday, Oct. 20, would convince
everyone that the seniors can imbibe
three years of knowledge and enter
their fourth year with no lack of genuine pep.

welcomed at Cosy Cove by Miss Edgell, and the afternoon was spent in
dancing, community singing and general good time.

After an ideal day, with excellent
weather and a charming chaperone,
the members of Arts '24 feel that
their first function is a pleasant forecast of the success of remaining activities of their college career.
Agric. '24 won the first of the inter-
classdghates in Agriculture when They
defeased Agric. '25 on the negative of
"Resolved, that it would be in the
best interests of the Dominion of Canada to have the grain from the two
western prairie provinces routed
through Vancouver." The senior class
was represented by Doc. Plummer and
Bon Ogilvie, and Art Alyard and Bill
Cameron ably upheld the honor of
the juniors.
At the close of the debate Mr. C.
E. Hope, B. C. director of the Grain
Growers of Canada, gave an interesting talk on the fight of British Columbia to obtain a portion of the export
grain trade from the western prairie
provinces. Mr. Hope has made an
exhaustive study of the problem and
was able to give the members of the
society some valuable information on
the fine points of the case.
On Tuesday evening, Oct. 23, at
the home of Mr. R. K. Chapman, New
Westminster, the Letters Club held
one of the most delightful meetings
in its history.
H. N. Cross read a paper on "Marl
Twain," dealing with the romance oi
the man's life, and with his two typet.
of work—pure humor and depiction
of western life in the early days. The
animated discussion which followed
the reading of the paper attempted
to determine the exact type of Mark
Twain's humor, and to decide whether
he was greater as a hum^st or is
a painter of life on the Mississippi.

Nursing held a hike to Lynn Valley,
but instead of stopping there they industriously pushed on to Seymour
Creek. All helped to find wood, and
soon a huge fire was blazing on the
banks. The girls gathered round to
roast weenies, and after tea made
some candy in an old tobacco tin with
the remains of the milk and sugar.
After enjoying this, which was voted
a huge success in spite of the chips,
they sang songs around the fire till
dark, and then started on a nocturnal
march to the car-line, and reached
town about 9.

Juniors Defeat
■ /       Christ   Church
The newly formed junior team turned in the only win of the week for
Varsity soccer representatives, by defeating Christ Church at Hastings
Park by the score of 2-1. The Church
claimed to have their strongest lineup, and the new team did well to
double the score on them. The game
was very even, and several breaks featured the game. Of these the Churchmen probably had the large end. Varsity had to fight hard during the first
quarter of an hour, but the defense
was playing with remarkable understanding, and the forwards soon developed some pretty combined plays.
After several close saves at both ends,
Partridge opened the scoring with a
fine effort. From then until half-time
there was little to choose between
the two squads. After the interval
Varsity got away with a rush, and
Smith registered the second tally from
close in. The Church tried hard to
put over a win, but the blue and gold
defense was sound. Then matters reversed and the Churchmen's goal escaped by sheer luck on several occasions, while the forwards aided them
by some erratic shooting. The play
swung from end to end, until Sutherland was beaten by a drive which he
had no chance to see. This put new
life into the game, and a desperate
struggle, with varying successes, ensued till the sounding of the final
whistle. Mr. Morley proved a valuable acquisition to the team as trainer.

Sutherland, Heaslip and Moffatt;
Miller, Ledingham and Taylor; Smith,

The second soccer team met some
time ago to discuss affairs for the
season. The elections resulted in
Hee Cant being chosen captain, with
Butler as his assistant. Manager
Mercer told the meeting that entries
had been filed for the Brunswick and
Mainland Cup competitions. Efforts
were being made to obtain a competent coach and a trainer. The team
has been equipped with a new outfit,
and will use Cecil Rhodes grounds
for Wednesday practices.
A relay race was held on Tuesday
between the crack team of the V. A.
S. C. and U .B. C, the latter losing
only by a few feet. The contest was
to have been held with the Telephone
girls, but they were unable to compete. The girls, three of whom were
freshettes, made a splendid showing
as indicate4 by the score result. The
team consisted of Phyllis Edgell, Lil-
looet Gr/en, Mary Robertson, and
Margery Wilkinson.
The/draw for the basketball games
for the Chris Spencer Cup was held
on Friday. The results were as follows:
Nov. 14—(1) Arts '25 vs. Arts '26,
and (2) Arts '24 vs. Arts '27.
Nov. 15—(3) Winners of (2) vs.
Nov. 26—Winners of (3) vs. winners of (1).
Varsity Loses to
CentraJL Park
Playing on a strange ground, under
poor conditions, U. B. C. was unfortunate not to escape the jinx last
Saturday, when they lost to Central
Park by a score of 3-2.
Varsity started in cyclonic style,
when Cant registered on a splendid
shot within a minute of the kick-off,
and althought handicapped by starting two men short, more than held
their own in the opening exchanges.
The Park men pressed, and forced
two unsuccesful corners, but U. B. C.
was always dangerous. Finally the
home forwards got away nicely, and
their outside left scored on a beautiful
play. Varsity carried the play into
the opposing territory, but after a
short, dangerous attack, the Park got
in a shot which Davidson could not
see. Shortly after this the home center half had the misfortune to break
his leg.
After half-time the team went out
to do or die, and pressed viciously for
some time. Cant was in a wonderful
position to make matters even, but Underwood was off-side. Evans made a
pretty run down the wing, and sent
over a perfect cross. In attempting
to clear, one of the backs deflected
the ball into his own goal. From this
point both teams were going their
hardest, although the brand of ball
was not excellent. Play swayed from
end to end, and it looked like a draw,
but with just about seven minutes to
go, Disney tripped one of the Park
forwards just outside the penalty
area, and the Park men won the game
when Davidson dropped the shot, and
the ball came in from among a group
of players. Again Varsity failed to
display their best form, but are confident that soon they will shake off the
jinx and show what they are really
capable  of.

Considerable opposition to the green
ties has developed among the Freshmen, and a number of the members
of the class have ceased to wear the
regulation neckwear. We believe that
this is chiefly due to the feeling that
the whole matter is a joke, or at best
merely an attempt to make the class
ridiculous. The regulation would not
have been passed by the Council if
the green tie could not serve some
definite purpose, besides furnishing a
means of Freshman discipline. The
fact that members of the class have
not been able to recognize one another has been, previously, the chief
drawback to class co-operation and
unity, and has also hindered the
choice of the best executive heads.
The green tie offers an advantage to
the Frosh of this year in enabling
them to become acquainted during
their first term, and this one fact is
sufficient to justify the measure. Each
year, also, the question is asked:
"What kind of a class are the Freshmen? Have they any faculty or university spirit?" The green tie, by its
prominence or otherwise at undergrad and mass meetings will answer
this question. If the Frosh do not
fear this answer let them keep to
their distinctive neckwear, and gain
the credit or discredit of their class
As we have said, this measure did
not receive the approval of either the
Students' Council or of other authorities in order to humiliate the Frosh
or make them objects of ridicule. It
was carefully considered, passed, and
now it is imperative that it be enforced. If student government is more
than a name in the University, the
three upper years must unite with the
Council in carrying out a measure
which combines a mild form of discipline with direct usefulness.
^his year there is a feeling of dissatisfaction among third year pass
students, owing to the fact that they
are not granted stack room privileges,
as has been the practice in previous
years. A stack room permit is more
valuable now than during any former
session. Due to the large increase
in the student body this year, the
Reading Room, the only other available place in which to study, is usually so crowded that senior students
are often unable to procure seats.
Now we realize that there are three
times the number of students with
permits which can be accommodated
in the Stacks. If permits are issued
to third year students, it will mean
that a number taking the pass course
will be occupying places that should
be open to honor students. We believe that the latter should be given
the preference, owing to the fact that
their studies necessitate more constant  reference  work.
What we do not realize is why University-Normal students who, comparatively speaking, have little reference
work, should be allowed to utilize the
places that are already inadequate in
number for honor and fourth year
students. If conditions do not warrant the issuing of stack room privileges to third year students, where is
the justification of giving to Normal
post-graduates, four half days a week?
Freshies ought to rejoice at the
change that has taken place since the
days of the song which ran "They're
killing men and women for the wearing o'  the  green."
•        •        *
The worst thing that we know about
granting Stack Room permits to Normal students is that they use them.
The attention of all interested is
called to the specially priced student
tickets which The Little Theatre Association is offering for its performances of "The Dover Road," on Nov.
7, 8, 9 and 10. For the evening performances the last three rows downstairs are reserved, and for the Saturday matinee the last seven rows downstairs and the back three in the balcony. Reservations may be made at
Walter Evans', on or after Wednesday, Oct. 31st. As the theatre is shallow, any of these seats are good, both
for seeing and hearing.

Editor "Ubyssey."
Dear   Sir:
Mr. Schell has "dirtied the columns
of our publication" with his cheap personal remarks, more than the so-called
"imbecile" H. C. Mr. Schell is in his
third year, and as a junior he should be
able to control his barbaric impulses
better than he does. 1 think Arts '26
has been grossly insulted by the slanderous remarks made on H. C's personality. The insult rellects on the class
as a whole. If an "imbecile" can make
the grading of the sophomore year it
is evident that the standard of that
class is on a "low level." Mr. Schell
has been so interested in this "imbecile"
that he has searched the records of Arts
'26 to find out who this "mentally unbalanced person" is. He also remarks
that "a person who is not man enough
to close a letter with his name cannot
be very sure of his standing." A person who wastes twenty lines slandering
an "imbecile" is not very sure of his
mental standing either. It is a pity
that Mr. Schell signed his full name.
Yours   faithfully,
Arts  '25.

The frosh team played circles
around Normals on Saturday, and won
by a score of 29-0. Only one try was
converted, so that with an experienced place kicker the score would
have  been considerably larger.
Varsity won the toss, and soon
forced the Normal students into their
half of the field. They were seldom
out of it, and during the first thirty
minutes of play crossed the line five
times, but failed to convert. In the
second half they went across for four
tries,  converting  one   of them.
The team played a better game
than on the previous Saturday, although the backs were not very good.
They did not run straight, and would
not pass the ball soon enough. The
forwards played an excellent game,
dribbling well, and heeling the ball
out of the scrum.

yet definite in form, but when it has

hence it is wrong to think that dramatic subjects have passed with the

House is being achieved more than the
founders ever realize.

The members of the Musical Society enjoyed an exceptionally pleasant
hike to Shearman's on Saturday—the
excellent autumn day contributing
much to the enjoyments of the outing. After hiking at a good fast rate
for five miles, a short time was spent
enjoying the beauties of the cove, and
then everybody did justice to a very
welcome lunch. Later in the afternoon a bonfire was built, and time was
passed in camp songs until the return
trip was made. Concerning those who
were left at West Vancouver, it may
be said: "The longest way round is often the sweetest way home."

Men's Lit. Discuss
I.L.A. Strike
The~Men's Lit. held its second meeting in the Physics Lecture Room last
Wednesday night. The subject, "Is
the Longshoremen's Strike Justified?"
was a timely one, and the crowd of
two hundred students present was
kept at high tension by the vigorous
opinions of the speakers.
Miss Lillian Cowdell spoke first,
outlining the case of the Shipping
Federation, as officials of that organization had presented it to her. Mr.
A. E. Grauer then reviewed the question from the point of view of the
I. L. A. The chairman, Mr. Lome
Morgan, then threw the meeting open
to discussion. A lively informal debate followed, twelve speakers taking
Dr. W. L. McDonald then gave a
general criticism of the speakers
which was much appreciated. He
told of the usefulness of knowing how
to speak in public, and extolled the
Men's Lit. for the good work it was
doing in training the students to
"think on their feet."
Before the close of the meeting a
vote was taken on the question at
issue, and the Longshoremen won by
a vote of one hundred and fifteen to

Vancouver music lovers have the
rare opportunity within the next few
days of hearing two outstanding singers of the world,,Dame Nellie Melba
and Dame Clara/Butt. These singers
are both Britishers, the former being
Australian and  the latter English.
Dame Nellie Melba has been for
years a noted opera singer and her
star shines bright yet in the firmament of the musical world. She has
won for herself the title of "Queen
of English Song," and ranks as one
of the leading coloratura sopranos of
today. Her appearance here on Wednesday, Nov. 2nd, at 5 p.m., in the
Orpheum, with Prince Obolensky, baritone, and Miquelle, 'cellist, will be an
outstanding event of the year.
On Monday and Tuesday at 8.30 in
the Orpheum Theatre, Dame Clara
Butt with her husband, Kennerley
Rumford, and W. H. Squire, 'cellist,
will appear in joint concert.
Dame Clara Butt is credited with
having the biggest voice in the world,
and coupled with volume she possesses
resonant, rich contralto quality. Kennerley Rumford is a singer of distinction, and the duet numbers given by
the two principal artists are always
an enjoyable feature of their programmes. Dame Clara Butt is ranked
as the most popular of extant singers
and her concerts here will be opportunities of hearing the best in music
presented in a highly delightful manner.

Hydrophobia is a disease to which
Dogs are subject, but Hot Dogs are
not. As a result of the fact that they
are immune to the disease to which
their brothers are so subject, the last
mentioned species are in the habit of
thanking their god that they are
Damned Hot Dogs instead of Dogs.
Now it is THE CROOK'S view of things
that any Hot Dog which will stand
on end and publicly rejoice that it is
not an ordinary Dog, ought to be
thrown out of the frying pan into the
fire. After all, is it not the Dog that
justifies the Hot Dog's existence?
Why certainly, and for the simple
reason that Hot Dogs are made for
Dogs to eat, and if all the Hot Dogs
start thanking "thier" god that they
are Damned Hot Dogs instead of
Dogs, why Doggone it, all the other
Dogs will be Dogged into Dognation.
Or we may put it as the poet Cowper
did in those immortal lines:
"Old Mother Hubbard went to the
To get her poor dog a hone."
And now, dear readers, THE CROOK
considers that it has performed a public service by dragging this subject
into the light, and explaining clearly
and in detail just what Hydrophobia

Varsity's leading prima donna, will
provide a rare musical treat this coming Friday, when he will render "The

well acquainted with this artist's talents and no introduction is needed on
our part. Following the performance
"Kitsilano" will be rendered by the

the Musical Society dressed as Hot
Dogs will render that popular classic,

It is THE CROOK'S belief that
higher education is highly superfluous
in the University of British Columbia, therefore it must be so. If you
argue with us we'll call you a Hot
Dog and accuse you of being a victim
of Hydrophobia. But to get oack to
our point. The ordinary education
that is perused by undergraduates is
tolerable, but when once students
graduate and attend Normal it is going too far. Just to prove how superfluous and obnoxious this higher education is we will outline some of the
things which THE CROOK has been
good enough to drag into the light of
The other day we went into the
Stack Room to study. We threw our
books on a desk. We endeavored to
pick them up again and found that
they were solidly stuck there: stuck
with Plasticine. We started for another desk and on the way we fell to
the floor, slipped up by split peas
strewn about. We came to another
desk and found another student occupying it, studiously cutting out paper dolls. No, sir, it is THE CROOK'S
editorial belief that this higher education stuff is on the same despicable
basis as the Hot Dog propaganda and
the Hydrophobia question.
There won't be any till tomorrow.

we realize that there are a great
many students in this college whose
tastes are so degraded that the rankest kinds of gossip and falsehood are
the only things that will interest
them. Therefore being out to make
money, it is our policy to give them
what they want. To give them what
they want we stop at nothing; we
listen for scandal under the tables in
the women's common room; we listen
behind the phone booth in the men's
common room; we take all things literally, lacking a sense of humour; we
make mountains out of cinders, phobia out of hydrophobia; in short we
degrade ourselves in every fashion,
and our policy is "Circulation by hook

Tickets will be on sale at the Students' Council Room today for the
Annual Arts Men's Dance. Students
in Arts will be able to buy their tickets today, but the hapless Science
men must wait till tomorrow. To
eliminate the stampede that has characterized these functions in the past,
the committee has decided to limit the
throng to 225 couples. As a result
we'll miss this year the dissipated-
looking cripple who used to be so
much in evidence at lectures the
morning after—that is if he or she
was there at all.
There won't be any vaudeville this
year. No more must we applaud infants in Highland costume, dancing
that old thing we all danced ourselves
at that age. We won't have to remark to equally bored partners that
the children are too cute for words,
when all that time a perfectly wonderful orchestra is going to waste.
Come along with Sheba and patronize home industry. Our own homegrown Cafeteria is to cater for us.
No, don't expect the familiar spaghetti, and you needn't come across with
the usual two dimes and a nickel, and
don't be disappointed if the meal begins with something other than the
customary vegetable soup. Even if
the Cafeteria management is a little
unrecognizable with its unaccustomed
frills, it is the same old Cafeteria,
with the same old sympathy for the
inner man, and the same old standard
of "vittles."
Lee's eight-piece orchestra will provide the noise. Music is under the
convenorship of Bert Smith and Chap
Gaddes; Tubby Shore is holding down
the decorations end of it; and Ross
Davidson is convening refreshments.
Murray Hunter has tactfully persuaded Mrs. Klinck, Mrs. Coleman, Miss
Bollert and Mrs. Logan to act as patronesses. Bill McKee is the convenor
of the general committee, and is doing a big bit of everything.
Remember to keep clear Tuesday,
the 13th of November, for the Arts
Men's annual triumph at Lester's—

The ninth annual smoker of the
S. M. TJ, S. was held on Saturday
night. Dean Brock opened it with a
very fine speech, during which he was
alternately serious and humorous.
The write-up of any smoker is
bound to be full of innuendoes, and
usually gives a very hazy idea of
what happened. It generally tries to
convey to the reader that an extremely "naughty" and happy time was enjoyed by all. The hazy part of it may
be right, but the enjoyable part certainly does not come the next day.
The faculty was represented by a
larger quota this year, and nearly
every member present had a few good
ones to tell. Prof. Thompson was in
excellent form. It has been rumoured that he has been offered an appointment as director of the Vancouver Follies. He certainly could hold
the job. Tradition has been shattered, for the Honorary President did
not tell one of the stories that have
made him so famous, and there is
great sorrow at the passing of so
great a man.
The success of the evening was due
largely to the excellent singing of
Messrs. Brenchly and Phillips, and to
the liquid refreshments. Truly the
evening was one of "wine, women and
Vancouver Institute
^ Lecture
Address by Mr.  Napier
"Vancouver will, in all likelihood,
never experience a severe earthquake
shock." was the prediction made by
Mr. Napier Dennison, superintendent
of the meteorological observatory at
Gonzales Heights, Victoria, during his
lecture to the Vancouver Institute last
Thursday. Slight tremors might be
felt within the next two years, however, and as disturbances of this nature were often severe enough to dis
lodge heavy cornices from buildings,
architects should think twice before
including such features in their drawings.
A number of very interesting slides
were shown, some illustrating the mechanism of the various instruments
used in seismology, others being the
records of earthquake shocks as registered on the seismograph.
In discussing the recent Japanese
disaster, the lecturer stated that this
shock was probably due to further
weakenings in the sea-bed near the
great Tuscorora Deep, a depression in
the ocean floor, six miles beneath the
surface of the water and very near the
Japanese coast. Although the waves
set up by this disturbance had not
been as great as those of some former
'quakes originating farther out in the
Pacific, nevertheless the former had
travelled with incredible speed, reaching the Victoria Observatory in eleven
minutes from Tokyo.
"Africa and the Zimbabwe Ruins,"
is the subject of the next Institute lecture, which, will be delivered this
evening in the Physics Lecture Room
at 8:15, by Mr. W. R. Dunlop.
Meeting of Monday, Oct.  29.
A motion was passed to the effect
that Miss Shorney, Messrs. Barr,
Grant, and Wolverton serve on a joint
