The Varsity McK^?wl(|ie-(2Cji52^am
obtained their fourth eonSee(|y|2f'win
of the season when they defearWlthe

grounds last Saturday, by the score
of 7 points to 0. By this win Varsity
secured a clear lead in the race for
honors, having now to its credit a win
over all the other teams in the
Victoria   Outplayed.
The win over Victoria was quite
clear cut. Victoria's forwards were
outplayed and Varsity was able to control the play almost entirely. Varsity
pressed hard throughout and the play
during most of the game was in Victoria's half. The first score came after about twenty minutes of play in
the first half, when Gee Ternan dropped a pretty goal, putting Varsity four
points in the lead. After the interval
the play fluctuated back and forward
with neither side having a decided advantage on the exchanges. Varsity
continued to press hard and were able
to make sure of the game when Gunning went across for a try after a pass
from Ternan. The team was in excellent condition, and as a whole played good rugby and had the field been
drier would have made the score far
more decisive in their favor. Al Buchanan and Harry Gunning played an
excellent game for Varsity.while Johnson of the Victoria team scintillated
in his kicking to touch.

forceful tactics of the Victoria College ladies. Helen Tatlow played in
her usual excellent form. The score
was 15—35 in favor of Victoria College.
The Varsity girls also went down to
defeat before the consistent and brilliant technique of the Victoria High
hoop artists, to the tune of 15—8.
Varsity "cleaned up" an easy victory in the three-game series of badminton. Miss Weld and Miss Russell
defeated their opponents in the women's doubles by scores of 15—0.
The men's doubles were hardly less
decisive. H. Finlay and O. "Woodman
defeated Major Cavan and St. Claire

The contenders in the mixed doubles
were more evenly matched. The service was spectacular and accurate.

Andrew's—Third in League
During the vacation the Varsity
First Division Soccer Team met with
varying success. The snow and attendant cold weather caused a cancellation of two league fixtures although, previous to the inclement
weather the Blue and Gold took the
Chinese Students into camp to the
tune  of  5  to  0.
The game between the Varsity and
Kitsilano was productive of some excellent soccer and resulted in a win
for the Collegians, 3-1. The win
placed Varsity in second place, just
one point behind the league-leading
Veterans. The following week St.
Andrews provided the opposition and
much to the surprise of the fans,
defeated the College team 2-0.

on Monday morning, tired it is true
but   enthusiastic   over   their   trip.
The B. C. delegation spent Xmas
day in Winnipeg, was entertained by
the students of the U. of .Manitoba,
and continued the journey on Xmas
night in company with the Manitoba
delegation. Xmas night can be most
enjoyable even on a train, tiiat is if
you have a jolly fat Santa, a Xmas
tree with presents for everybody,
and an energetic carol chorus. On

much hilarity found opportunity for
considerable    discussion.

President   Ab.   Richards   Brings
News  of  Sessions  Held
at Berkeley.
For the first time in the history
of the institution the University of
British Columbia was represented at
the annual meeting of the Pacific
Association of Collegiate Student
Body Presidents, held at Berkeley during the latter part of December.
Student body heads from 18 different colleges on the Pacific Coast
representing nearly 40,000 students
attended the Convention. President
Ab Richards attended as the sole
representative of U. B. C. and not
only took a prominent part in all
discussions but also introduced several matters for discussion in which
the University of British Columbia
is vitally interested at the present
The Association was organized
some time ago for the purpose of
bringing together men of the Western Universities of the United States
and Canada that they might discuss
matters of common interest and assist each other in the solution of
current student problems. The meetings also serve as a means towards
creating a friendly spirit between
rival colleges. Herbert S. Little of
the University of Washington is the
President   of   the   Association.
Among the questions discussed at
the recent gathering were many in
which the local institution is particularly interested, such as student
co-operative stores, discipline of
Freshmen, granting of Academic
credits to students taking part in
Alma Mater affairs, the hiring of
student managers and professional
coaches for the Athletic teams, etc.
The question of credits for participation in student affairs proved
of particular interest to the U. B. C.
delegate inasmuch as the system is
in vogue in many of the Southern
Universities but has been condemned by the U. B. C. Council. Mr.
Richards took the view that such a
system tended to commercialize the
work done by the student body of-

"Dominance through Excluaiveness"
The Wearing of  the Gown
By   Zip.
"To wear a gown or not to wear
one, that is the question"—which
Arts '24 decided at a meeting just
before Christmas. The decision was
that throughout this term, commencing January 8. l!)2:i, the students oi'
Arts '24, both men and women should
"don" the trailing gown. The motion,
as passed, was supported by practically all the women and a great number  of  the  men.
"It was on this gown question that
I, as a reporter for the UBYSSEY.
was told to go ahead and get a 500
word story. A .">()() word story and
all I had to work on was the little
strip of "old stuff" that I have spouted in the above. After racking my
brain for some time 1 struck upon
the brilliant suggestion of interviewing some of the members of '24 and
getting their personal opinions of the
$10.50   Would   Take   Her  to  the   Rink
10  and   y2 Times
The first person 1 tackled was Mr.
Lome Morgan. "Well," said Mr.
Morgan eyeing me in his logical
fashion, "personally 1 am against the
gown but for the good of the University I think that they should be
worn. You see its like this, towels
in the University are at a premium.
Now, if the students had a gown,
he or she could use the inside of the
said gown to wipe his or her hands
and face. In this way Arts '24 would
become a cleaner and better class,
thus contributing to a cleaner and
better  University."
"Wonderful" I exclaimed, when Mr.
Morgan had finished, "although I can't
say that I had ever thought of it in
that  way  before."
Mr.  Hagelstein's Views.
Just then 1 saw Mr. Hagelstein
standing in a corner of the common
room viciously twirling his beaver.
Going up to him I said, "Mr. Hagelstein I would like to interview you
on  the  '24   gown  question."
"Interview    ahead"    answered    that
gentleman    gazing   heavenward.
' "Do you  think that Arts '24 should
wear   gowns,"    1    asked,   "and   if   so,
"I most certainly think they
should," said Mr. Hagelstein. "In
the first place there are certain
familiar parts of a man's clothing
that first of all become shiny and
finally wear through. Just think
what protection and concealment a
gown at such times would afford.
In the second place during the summer a gown worn over a bathing suit
would look much more distinguished
than a raincoat. Finally I think that
the gown could be very conveniently
used on camping expeditions as a
"Marvelous." I exclaimed breathlessly,   "proceed    Mr.    Hagelstein."
"Well." he continues, another way
of looking at it is from the viewpoint
of $10.50 which is the price of the
gown. To be statistical, $10.."iO would
take Her to the rink ten and a half
times." And that was the final word
of   Mr.   Hagelstein.
I   Call   Upon  the  Co-eds.
And now. I thought. I guess I've
interviewed enough men. what's the
matter with my interviewing a couple
of the women. Being a bold and
daring reporter, 1 went boldly into
the women's common room where I
came upon Aliss Lucy Ingram. "Miss
Ingram," 1 said, "as star reporter for
the UBYSSEY 1 would like to inquire why it was that all the women
in Arts '24 voted for the 'wearing of
the   gown.' "
"Well you see," explained Miss
Ingram, "recovering from her lirst
shock of surprise, "some of us girls
were against the thing at the meeting, but Mr. Jack Grant, who was
there, chancing upon a stray gown
put it on to see what it felt like. He
looked so overwhelmingly cute in it
that we girls figured that we had better vote .'or the gowns so that wc
would have the privilege of seeing
him in one for the  rest of the  year."
It was at this point that Mr. Tansley entered upon the scene and
forcibly informed me that I had no
business in the women's common
room. 1 went out with him all right
but I took the opportunity of asking
him what he thought of the all-
important gown question. "Gowns,"
said Mr. Tansley, "why I would like
to put one on every person in the
University, you have no idea what a
wonderful help they are in keeping
the   stairs   swept."
More   Reasons.
The 'ast person I interviewed was
Miss Eloise Angell. "O, I think the
■<owns will be perfectly lovely." said
Miss Angell in answer to my tongue-
worn  question.
"So  do  I,"  I  answered  siding  closer
to her,  "but  tell  me  El Miss
Angell, what do you think are the
advantages  of  the  gowns."
"Well," said Miss Angell. "lots of
students go mountain climbing don't
they,   Mr.   Reporter?"
"Millions of them," I affirmed

The Varsity Intermediate hockey
sextette lost a hard fought game to
the league leading Bluebirds, when
Varsity was downed at the arena
last Friday night by the score of 2-1.
The game was even throughout with
neither team having a decided advantage on the play. The Bluebirds
got the better of tiie breaks and
ware steadier around the nets. In
the opening period neither team
struck their pace owing to the rough
ice, and play was ragged, the puck
bouncing here, there, and everywhere. The period ended with
Varsity pressing hard. After the
first interval Varsity settled down
and played good hockey, clearly outplaying the winged sextette. After
a few minutes of play Xewmarch engineered a pretty rush and netted
Varsity's only goal. However, Varsity
was not in the lead long and Clarke
of the Bluebird defense soon evened
things, up when after the prettiest
jUo rush of the game, he carried the
puck from behind his own nets and
placed it behind Stoodley, the Varsity
ii;>t minder. The third period was
much a repetitiion of the second,
being featured by individual rushes.
Roy Davis, flashy centre of the Bluebirds, put his team in the lead about
half-way through the period, and
from then on the "Birds" were never
headed, although the Varsity aggregation tried hard to even things up.
Varsity did not play as good a
combination game as the Bluebirds,
and were not as quick in breaking
away on their rushes. The Bluebirds uncorked some ciever passin v
; and their play was featured by
epiick hreak-a ways with two an I
three men going down the ice together. MacPherson for Varsity
j showed up well and played a hard
and useful game. His shooting however was somewhat erratic and he
] missed several shots when close on
goal. Demidoff and Xewmarc1, also
played well with Stoodley, Varsity
goal tender showing to good effect.
With more team play, and hard prac-

The Varsity Badminton Club continued its activities throughout the
Xmas holidays, holding sway at the
King Edward courts. Games were
played both on Xmas Day and New
Year's, and many members turned out
for the play. Last Saturday Varsity
held a tournament with the Fairview
Badminton Club and made a fair showing against more experienced opponents. This was the second tournament to be held between these two
clubs, and was productive of some
very excellent badminton. Those representing Varsity were: Harriet
Haines, Elsie Davidson, Marion Keenleyside, Esther King, Beecher Weld.

The Varsity men basketers played a
total of seven games during the holidays. The Senior A squad engaged
in three out-of-town games, winniii:,
one and dropping the other two afte:•
hard tussles. The team won '!?>—IS
from Victoria, lost 18—24 to Lady-
smith, and lost 18—2:; to Duncan. After the game at Duncan the players
were royally entertained at a ban
quet and dance. Those who made th->
trip were Carlisle, Lewis, Hartley, H
Arkley. Bassett and  Bickle.
The 'ntermediate Firsts took one
game from Y. M. C. A., but lost to the
Intermediate Seconds. The Intermediate Seconds won two games, and i i
their game against the Bank of Commerce set up a record score when they
idled up 'JS points to their opponents'  7.
(Continued from  Page 1.)
and by the superior weight of their
opponents, the College four-oar scullers were defeated in a keenly contested race, which was witnessed by
an  enthusiastic crowd  of spectators.
The battle between the senior four-
oared crew proved closer than the
one furnished by the two novice aggregations, but the .1. B. A. A. nosed
out victory by a length and a half.
The Victoria shell lead all the way in
the senior contest and crossed the
finish three lengths ahead.
Swimming proved popular and several thrilling races rewarded the record attendance. The Victoria Y. M.
C. A. men rolled up a total of IS point?
against Varsity's 9. This was offset
by the victory of the I'. B. C. ladie
against the V. A. S. C. contenders,
who lost by a score of 21  points to IT.
The .->0-yard backstroke race was
the most even of the cl.osely contest
ed events, and a re-swim was necessary in order to determine the winner. In the latter Jones of Varsity
won  by a close margin.
Previous to the Rep. game, the Varsity senior rugby squad mingled with
the .J. B. A. A. The Bays had the
edge during the first halt" and it was
not until Heber Jones made a touch
during the last minutes of the play
that Varsity could claim the victory.
The try was not converted, and Varsity won 3—0.
The four-mile relay, which pieced
ed the McKechnie Cup game, wa •■
marred by the fact that the J. B. A. A
turned out only three of their l'oui
men. Varsity agreed to a three-mile

Editor for the Week _ C. C. Upshall
has been done our graduates be not
remedied and some provision made
against the recurrence of such incidents, the case seems clear for the
establishment within the University
of a Faculty of Education at as early
a date as possible.
The recent action of the Normal
School authorities in refusing teaching certificates to four graduates of
this University is most difficult to
understand. Particularly is this so as
the Principal of the Normal School
has up to the present consistently refused to give the students any specific reasons for their failure. Even
if these reasons are given soon, it
will be difficult to account for the
long delay.
Candidates for teachers' certificates
in this province, according to the
wording of the actual documents, are
judged on scholastic standing, proficiency in teaching and general character. The scholastic standing of the
four students in question was satisfactory beyond a doubt, by virtue of
the degrees they held; their ability
to teach has been shown by the good
teaching criticisms awarded tliem at
the Normal School, and there have
been no slurs cast upon their characters. Why, then, have they been refused their 'certificates? And why
have they been given no reason for
failure beyond the delightfully vague
one of "unsatisfactory attitude towards your work"? Such action on
the part of the Normal School staff,
who grant teaching diplomas "at their
discretion." savours far too much of
a feudal high-handedness, which most
certainly should not exist in any modern educational institution.
We can only conclude that the four
graduates have been treated unfairly
and unjustly. We are well aware that
there has existed friction between the
Normal School staff and University
graduates attending the former school.
Friction between two such representative groups suggests friction between the two institutions, and it is
a probable inference that the unfair
treatment of the University graduates
is a direct reflection on the work that
their Alma Mater is doing. Such a reflection will be resented by every
member of this College. There will
be many who will question the competence of the Normal School staff
to cast a reflection upon the University.    Should the grave injustice that
Under the provisions of the University Act, all examination standings, after being tabulated in the
Registrar's Office, must be submitted
for approval to the Senate. The
marks   cannot   be   made   public   until
: they have received this official ratification.
In past years, students have been
in    the    habit    of    ascertaining    their
t Christmas averages by applying to
their respective professors or to the
heads of the departments. This year
it   was   decided    by   the   Faculty   of
i Arts that no results should be issued
privately; the totals were to be summarized in the Registrar's Office, and
issued to students upon personal application after Varsity re-opened.
Any students whose records were too
unsatisfactory to permit of their return, were advised by telegram or
j     The   Ubyssey   fully   appreciates  the
i amount of work which devolves upon
the staff of the Registrar's Office in
the preparation of examination statistics; it also appreciates the reasons
which   prompted   the   Faculty   of  Arts
j to discountenance private announcements. Hut members of the Faculty
must recognize that an earlier announcement of marks would be of
no small advantage to students, as
it would enable them to devote some
of their spare time in the holidays
to those subjects in which they had
been   proven  weak.
In many subjects, the examination
papers can be marked before Christmas. Surely, in these cases, the
marks could be posted, with the understanding that they were largely
approximate, that they were issued
for the convenience of the students,
and must be accepted as subject to
revision. The Ubyssey feels that it
is voicing the opinion of the student
body, in stating that the decided advantages which such a course would
provide, for useful study, would justify
any   extra   labor   involved.

the Executive has decided to open up

to join the Society is asked to see
Mr. Grant, the Director, or H. C.
Etter,  President.
It is a little late for New Year's
greetings, but at least it is not untimely for the Ubyssey to extend to
its returning readers the heartiest
good wishes for the new session.
The coming term promises to
prove an ardous one. The Christmas examinations reveal to every
student at least one course on his
curriculum to which more thought
might be devoted; and this year,
more than ever, the examination results should provide subject matter
for New Year's resolutions. Last
term was marked by several distractions which must have told against
scholastic efficiency;—the accommodation crisis and the disruption of
classes, occasioned by adjustments;
the difficulty of obtaining text books:
and the work of the Student Campaign. The public-spiritedness displayed by the student body during the
late session was deserving of all
praise; it now remains for the students to prove that they can be equally loyal to their individual interests.
This should apply especially to
those holding laborious executive
positions. Unfortunately only a minority of the students take any share
in the management of student activities; and as there is the inevit
able tendency to "overwork the
willing," it devolves upon the public-
minded to determine for themselves
the limit of time and energy which
they can devote to the business of
student affairs, while doing entire
justice to  their own.

not be in  the best  interests of either

Others   attending   the   convention   in-

was finally passed unanimously placing the Association on Record as lie-
ing  opposed  to  tlie  system.
The organization of co-operative
stores for the benefit of the students
also came in for a good deal of discussion. Outlining the plan of California University the delegate from
that college stated that the prime
purpose of such stores was not profit,
but are run as a convenience for
the students. Cards are sold to
students     at    the    beginning     of    the
i session for $10.00. This card entitles
him to a l()'/c reduction on all his
purchases made through this card
at the conclusion of the session. The
gross profit at California, including
the rebate last year amounted to
The employment of salaried officials for the management of student enterprises and athletics was
also discussed by the • Convention
and a resolution against the extension of such a system on the grounds
that it tended towards commercialization   of  student   activities   passed.
The convention came to the conclusion that the present tendency in
colleges was against the disciplining
of Freshmen. Good results had been
achieved however, with a series of
lectures by the senior men of the
University to the newcomers; in
which an effort was made to educate
them into a knowledge of the traditions of the institution it was stated. Fraternities and clubs had also
found that the granting of scholarships and other forms of recognition
for Freshmen making high marks in
the mid session examinations and
finals tended to raise the standard m
the  Freshmen year.
Pep Bands as a foundation upon
which to build rooters clubs etc.. the
organization and financing of Student Union Buildings and many other j
matters of importance were als. discussed.

The Student Conference held in Toronto during the Christmas recess
made a genuine effort towards the settlement of student problems. Delegates from U. B. C. are gratified with
the measure of success which crowned the efforts of the conference's enthusiasm and with the interested support of the students much of the impetus of the conference can be turned
to  immediate use.

American universities were greatly interested in U. B. C.'s valiant struggle
for proper accommodation, and as sev-

Extracts from "Le Jardin a"Epicure"
(Translated  by   K.  M.  P., with  apolog ies to the author, M. Anatole France.)
The end of art is not truth. Demand truth of the sciences, because
it is their aim; ask it not of literature, which has not and cannot have
any other objective than the beautiful.
I do not believe that twelve hundred people assembled to see a play
compose a council inspired with eternal wisdom; but the public, it seems
to me, usually brings to the theatre a
simplicity of heart and a sincerity of
mind that give some validity to the
feelings it experiences. Many people
who find it impossible to conceive an
idea of what they have read, are capable of giving a fairly precise account of wliat they have seen acted.
When we read a book, we read it as
we like; we read as much of it, or
rather into it, as we choose. The
book leaves everything to the imagination. For this reason it is that
uncultivated and mediocre minds, for
the most part, find but a pale and
tepid pleasure in reading. The theatre, on the other hand, shows you
everything and absolves you from imagining anything. That is why it
pleases the greatest number. It is
also the reason that it gives only a
very moderate pleasure to imaginative
and meditative spirits, who love ideas
only for the prolonging they give them
in their own minds, and for the harmonious echo these ideas awake in
their thoughts. These people find
themselves without occupation in a
theatre, and, therefore, to the passive
pleasure of the drama they prefer the
active delight of reading. What is a
book? A series of little signs. Nothing more. It is the part of the reader
to extract the forms, colours, and emotions to which these signs correspond.
It depends upon him whether the
book is dull or brilliant, glowing or
frigid. Or. if you prefer it so, every
word of a book is a mysterious finger
that  touches   a   fibre  of  the  mind  as
Literary Corner
one might pluck the string of a harp,
and thus awakes a note in the resonant soul. No matter how inspired and
skilful the artist's hand may be, the
sound it produces depends on the
quality of our intimate chords.
It is not so with the theatre. There j
the little black signs are replaced by
living images. For the subtle char- I
acters of type that leave us to guess i
so much are substituted men and wo- j
men. who have about them nothing
of the vague nor of the mysterious.
The whole is exactly determined. The
result is that the impressions received by the spectators differ as little as
possible, making allowance for the
fatal diversity of human reactions.
Therefore, in all dramatic presentations that are untroubled by literary
or political quarrels, a real sympathy
is established among the members of
the audience. If we consider, besides,
that the drama is the art least remote
from life, we shall recognize that it is
the easiest to understand and to feel,
and we may conclude that it is the
art about which the public is most
in agreement and makes the fewest

Evil is necessary. If it did not exist, good would not exist either. The
bad is the sole raison d'etre of the
good. Of what avail is courage where
no danger is, or pity without suffering?

It is, thanks to evil and to suffering, that the earth is habitable and
that life is worth being lived. We
ought not, then, to complain of the
devil. He is a great artist and a great
philosopher; he has wrought at least
half the world.

Ines' Innocent Indescretions
Dearest   Ermentrude: —
Well here we are back again and
I for one am not at all sorry. Of
course the holidays are fun but when
it comes to studying human nature,
the university corridors are certainly useful. Even if it is practically
a case of "All are gone, the old
familiar faces" as far as the Frosh
are concerned. I hear there has
been weeping and gnashing of teeth
over some of the dismissals. Even
members of the upper years regret
the loss of the young Adonis and
one fancies the Freshettes may not
attend their meetings quite so assiduously in future. But of course
Ermentrude you are wondering why
I haven't said a word about the
Victoria trip. Well my dear it was
as usual a mixture—a remark which
refers both to those who went and
to their occupations. One or two
rather amusing incidents brightened
the week-end, and one or two mysterious occurrences made it interesting. Just whv so and so did not
appear at the dance is always a
fruitful subject for discussion and
when a group absents itself in a
body rumors are bound to arise.
Kqually pointed remarks are sometimes called forth by a too constant
appearance and one "Honeymoon
Couple" has attained fame for the
next three months at least. The
Inseparables were also very much to
the fore, though one can't help thinking occasionally something about
five foot nine would better repay
their efforts. And speaking of paying, one wonders what some captious   commentators   would   make   of
a certain friendly game in which. 1

Dr. Herbert Gray, head of a visiting
S. C. M. delegation from Great Britain, will address several student meetings during next week on topics of
student interest.
The committee in charge of arrangements for Dr. Gray's visit are: Dr.
T. H. Boggs, .Miss M. L. Bollert.
Messrs. Jack Grant. Gerald Kerr,
Lloyd Wheeler, Harold Allen; Miss
M. Bulmer. Miss J. Casselman, and
Miss Annie  Anderson.
The meetings of general interest
are as follows:
Tuesday, Jan. 16, 11.15, general
meeting in Auditorium; 8.30, meeting
at Chalmers Church.
Wednesday, Jan. 17, 3.15, general
meeting (under the auspices of the

At the opening meeting, the general committee which had called the
conference turned it over to a committee chosen by the delegates. Mr.
Jack Grant represented B. C. on this
committee. The roll of colleges was
then called: British Columbia, the
youngest university being called first
and responding with 'Kitsilano.' Sir
Robert Falconer, President of the
University of Toronto, and His Kx-
cellency Lord Byng, gave the opening   addresses.
Dr. Herbert Gray, head of the British Student Christian .Movement, was
present at the conference and gave
a series of excellent addresses in
which he emphasized the fact that
our national and international problems could be solved only by the
adoption   of   Christian   principles.
Among other topics the conference
discussed the industrial and rural
situations in Canada, the problems
raised by the presence in this country of different races, and Canada's
international       responsibility. The
delegates were fortunate in having
such men as the Hon. E. C. Drurv,
Dr. R. H. Oliver, and the Hon. X.
W. Rowell as speakers on these
topics. A party of European students which is to tour the universities of the I'nited States, attended the
conference and was aide to give
most intersting details as to the
work of the S.  C.  M. in  Europe.
On the whole the conference was
a magnificent effort to arouse student interest in Canada's national and
international problems and an attempt
to convince students that, should the
spiritual side of life be neglected the
nation could not become unified or attain its fullest development.

ing us when some  Sophs, on the  Belmont   Building's   highest   floor   stirred
the   amazed   Victorians   with   a   "Kitsilano."
Tliose who found their places in
the hotels or with friends, and had
time to see the Badminton, were pleased at Varsity's victories. The Sophs,
in the Belmont had an impromptu
dance until dinner time. After dinner, if one were lucky enough to get
a bite, the basketball games were
played, Varsity winning the two men's
games, while losing the women's.
A dance followed, but as the young
cars have to be in by twelve, the programme was quite short. A light
lunch and home was then in order,
along with three days' rain, poker and
craps featured the wee hours.
On Saturday morning those who
were foolish enough to get up early
saw more basketball. Some saved
a meal by staying in bed. The afternoon was occupied by the Rugby
game and as almost a relay race.
After the rugby the crowd went
to the swimming meet but finding
it too hot there left to get their hair
curled or their shoes shined for the
big Empress dance at night. A
liasty meal preceded the dance
where the floor was almost as crowded as the Frosh Reception. The
"New England" was the popular resort after the stampede. More poker
with an occasional soft drink featured the night. The rugby men broke
training during this time.
Sunday was a day of rest and
sightseeing. At 2:15 the boat pulled
out with a "sky rocket for Victoria"
and a "Kitsilano." The trip home
was rough and in spite of many brave
attempts to settle down some of us
had to find tlie rail. Doc. Davidson
was with us. And, by the way, the
Parliament buildings were lighted
up for us. This may be considered
quite an honor and at least shows
that the campaign has left a mark
on   the   stones   at   Victoria.

Alumni Notes
The Alumni Publication Committee
has sent letters to about twenty graduates from U. B. C. who are taking
further courses in other universities,
asking them for a contribution in
news for the "Ubyssey."
The following is the first ot a number of replies which we hope to publish from week to week. It is from
our former Alma Mater President, Mr.
A. E. Lord, B.A., who is now studying
law at Osgoode Hall, Toronto:
English and  Canadian   Rugby.
"Not having played the Canadian
game, my opinion is necessarily that
of a spectator, and not of an actual
participant. After having seen the
best teams of the East in action, and
watched their different styles of play,
I am of the opinion that the English
code of Rugby, properly played, is a
better game than the Canadian, both
from the standpoint of the player and
of the spectator. It is a better game
for the player because he must use
more initiative in the English game,
whereas in the Canadian game every
play is worked out for the players by
the coaches before they go on the
field. A well-played English game has
more in it for the spectator than the
other, because the style of play is
more open, there are more passing
bouts. You will notice that I have
«been speaking about well-played English games. There is nothing so
wretched to watch as a loosely played
game of English Rugby, and the same
applies to the Canadian game. But
there is where the difference lies: the
teams here, both the university and
city teams, are out practically every
night in the week, which of course
leads to greater efficiency and better
"The English game in B. C. is poorly played by most teams because of
lack of practice, and neglect of the
finer points of the game. A shorter
and more concentrated season would
do much to better these conditions.
A  Great  Game.
"The Canadian teams seem to depend principally upon the men in the
back division for their effectiveness.
All the plays are built about these
men, who do the line plunging and
the end runs, which latter correspond
a good deal to our three-quarter runs.
The spectators get a great kick out
of these line bucks, and in the game
itself there is a great opportunity to
mess a man up if he is getting too
efficient in this sort of game. There
are too many casualties. One game
I saw took over two hours to play,
although the actual playing time was
only about an hour and a quarter,
counting half time rest. The rest of
the time was spent administering to
the temporarily incapacitated.
"The game has a wonderful hold on
the people here; everybody in Toronto
seems to know the players of each
team by name, and they turn out in
thousands to see the games. It certainly is a great game to watch when
the teams are evenly matched, but I
can't rid myself of that prejudice
about the game being too tight, not
open, and the lack of opportunity for
individual  initiative.
"It is unfortunate that the people
of the East must form their idea of
the English game by seeing the play
of such teams as those of Toronto
and McGill. I went down to McGill as
coach and we beat McGill by 7 to 0,
but it was a very ragged exhibition,
and a good high school team in Vancouver would have beaten either of
The exclusion of women from Cambridge University was strongly condemned by the National Council of
Women of Great Britain and Ireland
in their recent conference at Cambridge. It was stated that Cambridge
University in this respect stood alone
among all the universities in the
British Empire and the English government was called on to take steps
in parliament without delay to secure
the admission of women at this ancient university.
Inter-Collegiate Hockey will commence at MANITOBA UNIVERSITY
on .Ian. 6th, with 6 teams in the
Senior League, and 11 in the Junior.
The U.M.S.U. (Students' Union) will
have 3 teams bearing the Brown and
Gold, one in the City of Winnipeg
Senior League, one in the Junior,
and  one  in  the  Juvenile.
Manitoba congratulates U. B. C. on
the success of its campaign for new
buildings. The situation here is much
the same as in B. C.; our buildings
are temporary,—permanently temporary, it might appear,—and the action
of U. B. C. has been watched with
interest by this University. It's outcome will be awaited no less eagerly.

'Varsity made their debut in Vancouver Track circles when they entered the annual five mile Dunlop
Road Race on New Year's day and
gave the champion Elks squad a run
for their money. The four U. B. C.
men who made up the team were
Carl Barton, Doug Rae, Les Buckley
and Peter Demidoff, and considering
the fact that the Elks had some of
the best talent of the province
Varsity did well. Verne Whitworth
and Claude Farr. both B. C. champs
in distance events, finished first and
second respectively. Carl Barton finished third and ran a good race.
Barton'losing out chiefly on account
of his lack of finish and sprint: this
will come with experience and in a
very short time Barton should make
a name for himself in local track
circles. Young J. McGivern of the
antlered herd was fourth and Les
Buckley of U. B. C. fifth. Buckley
won the race last year when running for the Elks showing a clean
pair of heels to all opposition but,
the pace was somewhat faster this
year than last, and Buckley admits
that he had not the condition. Last
year's time was SOni., 40 1-5 sees.;
this year over a slightly shorter
course 28m., 21 2-5 sees. Whitworth,
jr.. of the winning team was sixth,
and Doug Rae came in a close seventh, just beating out H. Smith of
the Brother Bills with a splendid
sprint. Peier Demidoff was last but
deserves much praise for finishing at
all as he was seized with cramps
early in the race but gamely stuck
it out till the finish.
Although Varsity doesn't wish • to
make any alibis, in justice to the
j team it must be said that they were
; handicapped by the fact that the
; Xmas exams interfered with their
I training, and that one of their best
j men, Hope, was unable to compete
I through   illness.
| Down at Victoria the four mile relay was somewhat of a fizzle and as
iyhe Victoria men were one shy, three
I laps were agreed upon. Rae run-
I ning first for U. H. C, put up a
j strong race. Barton then started
I even with Harvard and just lost out
j on the sprint. Buckley ran with
; Buchitt and after setting a fast pace
j all the way finished with a whirlwind
I sprint  and  left  Buchitt  standing.
