Varsity Loses
Hard Game
Varsity second team suffered a
severe defeat last Saturday when the
Centrals ran up a score of 19 - 0
against them.
Thirteen of the points were amassed
in the first half during which the team
did not seem to obtain the measure of
their opponents. Fifteen minutes
from the start Underhill had to leave
the field with a twisted ankle and the
loss from such an important position
as half was a severe handicap. Centrals played a very good game, their
forwards heeling with a precision that
gave every opportunity to a fast three-
quarter line. Macken on the inside
made some fine runs and registered
the majority of their tries.
In the first ten minutes after half-
time Centrals added six points to their
score. This was too much for the
Varsity men who proceeded to take
the play down to their opponents end
of the field. Here they kept hammering at the goal line for the remainder
of the game. During this latter part
of the match the team was working
much better and on more than one
occasion were unfortunate in not scoring.
The turn-out of supporters was very
poor. When are we going to grasp
the fact that strong support is the
just due of all our teams in every
match and not merely a special favour
granted with benign condescension
on particularly red-letter occasions.
Tangible evidence of their Varsity's
faith in them is an enormous help
to a team when things are not going too well, and an additional incentive when prospects are favorable.
There must be few of us who do not
regard our first fifteen with pardonable pride. How many realise that the
McKechnie team's opportunity to
show their full worth is made possible
by the hard work and general stan
dard of the second and third fifteens.
Get behind your teams, Varsity. They
are doing their part.    Let's do ours!
The team: Cameron, Back; Price,
Penwell, Hunter. Peter, Three-quarters; Scott, Kickell, Five-eights; Underhill, Half; Gregg, Hatch, Hooper,
Hedley, Jones, Meekison and Nichol
son, Forwards.

The train left promptly at 12:01 a.m.
with the live-stock judging teams, together with their coaches, forming the
bulk of the cargo. All apparently
went well until they arrived at New
Westminster at which point a member who was sleeping aloft commenced
judging dairy stock accompanied by
an enthusiastic woodsman's sawing
below. At Blaine the wood pile was
completed and Johnny also had his
dairy herd standing in their correct
order of merit. However, when passing
the Peace Arch the obliging descendant of Ham, in charge of the car, considered it necessary either to ascertain the boy's T.D.P. (thermal death
points) or else he thought it would be
well to prepare them for eventualities
in the hereafter. Mr. Johnsing sholy
did turn on the heat, and he did not
turn it off again until he came to
Bellingham, the U. S. northern oil
centre. Nothing further of note happened until changing cars at Seattle,
at which point Woods bought a new
pair of shoes (the shoes will appear
again later).
It seems that Bill's T.D.P. was
reached early in the game for he was
located in the dining car refrigerator
at daybreak and by the time that he
was sufficiently cooled the boys had
escaped up town. Bill did some good
tracking and arrived at Boldt's restaurant just in time to make the first
dive into the porridge. Bert surely
loves Seattle but the best of friends
must part and the parting took place
at 10:10 a.m. with the gentle rain
descending. At Tacoma Archie

Perhaps It was the "Haunting
Waltz"; perhaps it was the twinkling
coloured lights that spelled out '23
and made a moonlight setting for the
waltz; perhaps it was the filmy stuff
our partners were wearing; or perhaps
it was our partners themselves who
were even more charminug and vivacious than usual. It may have been
all of those things with a few more
added. Anyhow the result was distinctly complimentary to the efforts
of the tireless executive of the Junior
class, whose party it was. Everybody, even to the Science men who
were favored with the opportunity of
dancing with the most charming girls
in the University, burdened the air
with sighs of regret when the mystic
hour of a very little past midnight
came, and the edict of an unfeeling

The music, supplied by Buchanan's
orchestra was very good. The games,
carried on in the Men's Common
Room, that for once looked like a
Mandarin's front parlour, were a
great success. The decorations were
excellent. Shaded lights, palms,
streamers, evergreens here and there,
and other features that only a woman
or an overwrought class executive
could have bought of, so transformed
the old auditorium that it was hardly
recognizable. The refreshments were
very fine. And surely it was the
height of hospitality to have a pretty
verandah with vines of ivy clinging
around it and shaded lights and cosy
chairs from which the patronesses
might watch the dancers as they passed..
Dean and Mrs. Coleman, Mr. and
Mrs. Larsen, Dr. and Mrs. MacDonald
and Miss Bollert were on hand to see
that we behaved ourselves. But we
believe that they enjoyed the semi-
darkness of the '23 Moonlight Waltz
as much as we did.
Armistice Day
A very impressive commemoration
service was held in the Auditorium
on Friday last when the whole student
body assembled to observe Armistice
Day. Sharply at eleven o'clock the
assemtled students arose and stood in
silence tor two minutes, in honor of
those who had gone forth never to
Dean Brock was chairman of the
meeting and in an appropriate speech
told of the meaning of Armistice Day,
why we should observe it, and what
it had meant to the thousands of soldiers who experienced the cessation
of hostilities at the front. His speech
was well illustrated, and he told vigorously of how he had experienced the
thrill of Armistice Day away in the
historic battlefields of Asia Minor.
Mr. J. E. Pacey, a well known soloist
of the city, then sang Kipling's "Recessional," which was well received
by the students who gave him an ova^
tion  far  his  rendering.
President Klinck was next called
upon and in an impressive, forceful
speech outlined all the events which
had followed upon the signing of the
Armistice three years ago. He told
of the wonderful efforts of the Peace
Conference of Versailles, where the
destiny of nations had been taken
from the handr oi generals and placed
in the hand's of statesmen, and pointed
out the many difficulties that had to be
met there. He described briefly the
different, _ steps toward world peace
which have reen made during the
last three years and which have reached their zenitft in the present disarmament conference at Washington. Turo-

Harris bought a nickel's worth of peanuts from the newsboy. At Puyallup
Hugh nearly fell out of the window
while admiring the scenery and Paul
threw away the organism owing to the
fact of more puts than takes occurring
and the peanuts having been demolished. Vancouver, Wash, was the
next important centre where Bert
picked up the Portland News to discover that a foreign team from Edmonton, B. C. was competing in the
judging contest.
Arrived at Portland, 3:45 p.m. embarked on Multnomah bus for hotel;
3.50 Woods and Harris, Bert and
Hugh, Archie and Bill, Johnny and
Paul all safely deposited in their various boudoirs which were widely separ-
[ ated for reasons best known to the
management: 4 p.m. Johnny tells Paul
that there are no nice looking girls in

line up for the Hazelwood restaurant:
. 6 p.m. commence dinner, Woods still
i disconsolate, Harris jovial. Hugh
quiries as to Woods health. The
tragedy. It appears that when Woods
was purchasing the new pair of shoes
in Seattle the clerk wrapped them up
in the rear of the store, and that
Woods upon opening the parcel at 5
p.m. found not the brilliant latest
model shoes that he expected to find
but in their place a very much worn
pair, in fact they were very similar to
the pair that the clerk was wearing
when making the sale. Hence the
joviality of Harris and the sadness of
Woods. However, the mystery was
solved when Hugh inadvertently displayed his well attired feet after completing the soup course. Hugh had
traded shoes at Puyallup with the pair
in the parcel. Nothing further happened until Harris discovered that his
bill was forty-three cents higher than
it should have been, Bill swapped bills
by mistake and had taken his departure.
Next morning found the boys on
parade at 8 a.mfl on the fair grounds.
Everyone was intent on the work in
hand and everyone hoped for the best.
The other teams were there and each
one appeared to be a stock man.
From eight until noon no one remembers anything except Shorthorn
heifers, Hereford calves, Percheron
stallions, Duroc gilts, Rambouillet
ewes or Commercial drafters. After
a hurried lunch the general teams
gave several impromtu yells on the
street car under the leadership of
Harris of U.B.C. and at 1:30 were
lined up ready for the oval sessions
before the judges which lasted until
10:30 p.m. It was a strenuous day,
the competition was keen, and the boys
worked hard and fast, but the fates
were not kind, for at the banquet held
at noon the next day the order of the
competing teams was given, Oregon,
Washington, California, Utah, British
Columbia and Idaho. After that all
that could be heard among the B. C.
teams was "wait until next year."

The dairy team did well. The competition was very close, there being
the small margin of 69 points between

of Thursday, Friday and Saturday of
next week are strictly private. No
person will be admitted without the
proper ticket or card of invitation.
Students to the number of 525 will be
accommodated on the opening night,
and the remainder of the student body,

been tampered with, the ticket will
not be honored.
Tickets will be distributed by Miss

In the most -evenly-contested soccer
game yet played by the Varsity boys, n
game featured by brilliant rushes and
spectacular saves, the blue and gold
headed out the league leaders by a
score of 1-0. This ensures the team a
good chance of winning the cup because the present league leaders
(Elks) have but 11 points, while Varsity has 9. Time after time, the
Varsity forwards rushed down the field
only to be robbed of the ball at the
goal mouth.
In the first half, what looked to be
certain goals, were spoiled by poor
kicking, the ball generally passing over
the bar. The Province goalie stopped
a pretty shot from Cameron by falling
full length on the ball, and this same
performance was repeated in the second half, but the referee gave the opposing side a free kick due to the
number of forwards that rushed the
goalie. The Varsity boys, after many
and fruitless attempts to score, seemed
to think that there was a jinx on
their trail, and when five minutes from
time came and there was still no
score, the crowd was in suspense. The
Province cleared their goal mouth,
and rushed up the field, where they
were robbed of the ball by Baker. The
ball was passed to Rushbury, who
centred it to Jackson, and there was
a mad rush for the goal. McLeod had
a clear field, and with a speedy shot,
beat the goalie. Soon afterwards the
whistle blew, with Varsity on the long
end of the score. The team has an
excellent chance for the cup now.
It would hardly be fair to single out
any particular person for special mention, as the whole team played brilliantly. Baker and Mosher, however,
showed themselves the best on the
field in their respective positions. The
largest turn-out of Varsity rooters seen
at any game this season was on hand,
and if satisfaction rendered is any
guarantee of repeated attendance,
Tiany more should be out next Saturday.

the team has a chance at least to visit
Seattle. If terms can be satisfactorily arranged, Stanford and U. B. C.
rugby teams will play an exhibition
game in the new Washington Stadium.
One thing at least is certain—and
that is the two rival teams will clash
on December 26. Another hair-raising
contest is expected and there is no
need for warning that the backing of
every student is needed. Varsity is
cut to duplicate last year's performance if possible and the support of
everybody is wanted.
It is regrettable that Varsity will
be unable to defend the Championship
of British Columbia this year. It is
impossible to field a team of senior
calibre. Last year's championship
team is scattered to the four winds—
but everyone hopes that Varsity can
develop another for next year. There
is no lack of material turning out, but
it is as yet undeveloped and could not
be expected to compete with any show
of success in th.e senior league. Of
last year's stars, Broadfoot is the only
one available—as Wolverton has a bad
leg and "Gee" Ternan is occupied at

WHY   '23   WON
An  Unbiased Account
Saturday's game on the High School
Campus proved the superiority of '23
in rugby at least. The game was a
valiant and successful attempt to wipe
out the stigma of being one point be
hind Arts '22 at the track meet.
From the standpoint of good rugby
'23 had immeasurably the superior
team. Their scrum demonstrated almost a familiarity with the game and
worked very well, while the team work
of the whole won the match.
Doc. Sedgewick appeared for a short
time but the futile efforts of his squad
were  to much for him.
For an amateur game the play was
very good and singularly free from
accidents, only one senior man being
laid out cold, while a number of the
seniors were made sick for the time
The diversity in costumes was remarkable, only two being alike. The
Knight of the Hood for '22 led his men
nobly, but soon dispensed with his
head piece. It was whispered that he
had  cold  feet.
An alibi by Arts '22
The jinx was against us from the
fourth minute when our fourteenth
man, Cliff Woodworth sustained a
broken nose. One from fourteen is
thirteen. Q. E. D. These thirteen could
have beaten any thirteen Arts '23 men
but playing against overwhelming odds
which included fifteen Juniors, George
Clark's sox and Charlie Clarke's Helmet, we managed to suffer a glorious
but not decisive defeat. The score
was no indication of the play, as some
of our men persisted in tackling their
Tn the first half, we condescended to
allow our apponents to score one try
which was converted. During this
time our men played an uphill battle.
In the second stanza, our condescension became quite pronounced owing to
Do:c. Sedgewick's appearance. The
team was as follows:
Forwards—A. Vogee, L. Wells, C. A.
F. Clark, W. Black, A. Harris, and
W. McAfee; Halves—B. Eagles, Five-
eights—R. Stephens; Three-quarters—

There has been considerable talk
among the students of a plan to institute a consolidated trust fund to
take care of surplus funds of the
minor societies. Many seem to think
that this is a new idea. Actually it
is not so^ for Sec. 2 clause 7 of the A.
M. S. constitution states that the funds
of the society (in part) shall consist
of "all monies      .    . received by
student organizations under the society."
This rule, however, has never been
rigidly enforced. Certain societies
have been allowed a wide latitude as
to how they should dispose of accumulated funds. Instead of contributing
to the central Alma Mater fund the
favorite plan has been to put the
money in trust funds for various purposes. At the present time the
three such funds, the War Memorial,
the Players' Club, and the Musical
Society, all have worthy aims. The
seting aside of the money for a definite purpose satisfies the natural desire of the societies that the money
earned by them shall be appropriated
to their own use at some future time,
whereas they have no such guarantee
if the constitutional regulation is rigidly enforced.
With only a few trust funds as at
present the plan is all right. But as
time goes on, to satisfy the natural
desire of growing societies, there will
come into being a considerable number of these funds, the responsibility
being vested in various treasurers and
trustees. Hence the suggestion for. a
consolidated fund. The societies
would then each have a share in the
common fund but would have a guarantee that money contributed by them
might be used according to their desires. The fund would be administer-
~"l by the treasurer of the Alma Society, who would be bonded in the proper business-like manner, working in
conjunction with a board of trustees.
The news of the small societies which
cannot finance themselves but have
nevertheless an important place in
University life could be met by a small
percentage of surplus funds,—say 20
per cent.—being diverted to the Alma
Matgr fund, whence it could be doled
out as occasion arose.
As stated before the present plan
seems to be working without much
trouble. But the University is yet
in its infancy and we will do well to
look into the future and plan our organization accordingly. Some such
plan as the one roughly outlined above
would be much more business-like than
the present one, and will be absolutely necessary as the University grows.
The men who are guiding student affairs now are trying to evolve some
such plan, and are anxious for a frank
discussion of the matter that will aid
them to a decision. The question is
one that merits the careful attention
and consideration of every student.
The University should not be a poli-
ticial factor, and it Is certainly not
the function of the ' 'Ubyssey" to
mingle in politics, yet we should not
ignore the contemporary history of
our country; and the election contest
which will agitate Canada for the
next three weeks is of sufficient importance to warrant our attention.
While no one ventures to predict the
outcome, it is generally conceded that
it is to be of importance equal to that
of 1911, and the complications arising
from the number of new parties involved give the situation a fascinating
elusiveness when one tries to review
Some of us are already electors, and
the rest will be in the next few years;
and it is not boasting to say that
among us are some who will be influential in the politics of the future—
the cynic will call this a shameful confession. It is our duty to realize that
we have a certain responsibility in
this matter, and when we hear ah.out
or see the defects of present-day politics we should feel that it is up to us
to conceive an improvement, and put
it into force as soon as we can.
As University students we are in
a peculiarly advantageous position
for studying the state of affairs. We
are not yet confirmed adherents to
the prejudices of any party, and if we
have gained anything from the University we should be able to analyse
the situation with a trifle more intelligence and tolerance than "the man in
the street." We are being given an
excellent chance to study the issues
which will control Canadian policies
for the next few years, and if we
take advantage of it we will be able
to formulate our own opinions at
leisure, and not be found at the mercy
of the party demagogue and the editorial-writer  when   the   next   election

We are not all students of poetry,
but we must admit that the literature
of a country is a considerable factor
in the development of its national
feeling. Canada in this respect is still
in its infancy, for though she has
produced authors of repute, they have
had to go to the United States or England for their first recognition, and
sometimes have never returned to
their   unappreciative   native   country.
it is generally conceded that Canada's greatest poet is Bliss Carman,
who will speak here on the evening
of November 22, under the auspices of
the University Women's Club. He will
give readings from his own poems
and those of his firm friend, the late
James Whitcome Riley.
Bliss Carman's widest reputation is
in the United States and in Europe,
where it is interesting to note that
his poetry was the subject of an important thesis by which a French savant received his doctor's degree from
the University of Rennes. But the
poet's work has always remained true
to the early impressions of natural
beauty which he gained in his New
Brunswick birthplace, and he, more
than any other, merits the title of
Canada's national poet.
His address will be given in the
auditorium of the First Congregational
Church, and it is to be hoped that no
one who is interested in our national
literature will miss this opportunity to
pay their respects to a man who has
devoted his life's work to giving it
existence. ,

Dear Sir:—I think I am expressing the
opinion of many students when I state that it
is time that publicity be given our foster child
—the cafeteria. Surely we have been nursing:
a lion's whelp, which, now that it has reached
some degree of stability, threatens to devour
us—at least financially.
First—have you ever rushed over about 4
p.m. to stifle the encroaching pangs of hunger
with a square (inch) of pie and a cup of—■	
only to find the door securely locked while
overhead, a prominent notice promises you admittance until 5 p.m. ?
Or have you, at noon impelled by a feeling
of inward insufficiency, scanned the menu in
a vain hope that you might, for your paltry
45c, obtain at least sufficient to necessitate
picking your teeth ? If you have done this
you will at least be interested in my criticism.
I think I may state without fear of contradiction, trat I can go to almost any downtown restaurant and get more food, equal in
every way to that dispensed in our cafeteria,
for the same expenditure. One may even go to
a restaurant such as McLeod's and get at least
cafeteria   values.
Now the cafeteria has the following advantages over the down town restaurant. It
has absolutely no rent to pay, ordinarily one
of the heaviest of the overhmead expenses,
it has dishes supplied free, paid help reduced
to a miniumum, and it does not have the expensive equipment found in establishments
of a similar nature. Certainly it may have a
few disadvantages to contend with, but the
above facts are overwhelmingly in its favor.
It is generally admitted that last year we got
better value for our money, yet the cafeteria
operated profitably; and still in a time of
falling prices, it has not increased the size of
your stale bun or microscopic section of
bread. And it has been rumored that they are
going to dish the potatoes up with an eye
I wonder if anyone failed to notice the impression made on our delagates to the P.I.P.A.
as given out  in last week's "Ubyssey."
Here it is: "At the U. of W. one can obtain a sumptuous meal for 35c." I challenge
any sane healthy individual in our U. to say
the same of our cafeteria.
Fellow-students, we are being outrageously
gulled. It is time that lion's cub had a collar
and chain put on it.
Sincerely yours,
Quite a number of students have already got
jobs and there are many more who would be
able to get them if such an employment
agency were started. The idea of the agency
would be to act as a medium between thte employer and the employee. By co-operating with
stores and other businesses, I am sure that the
people of Vancouver would be glad to assist
any students who are making their own way
through  college.
But this is only an outline of the activities
of an employment agency and this letter is
only to bring to the attention of everybody
that it is possible to start such an organization. Let* us have some more discussion. Let
us have some more discussion on the subject
and see what the student body thing about this
subject.—E. C. H.
Editor "Ubyssey."
Dear Sir:—
It seems surprising that no movement for
the establishment of a Student Employment
Agency has ever been started at U.B.C. Practically all other colleges both in Canada and
the United States have such agencies for
students who are supporting themselves at

University who would like to get jobs for Wednesday and Saturday afternoonse and also
work for odd afternoons or evenings. To a
certain extent this must also apply to some of

I would appreciate the use of your
columns to discuss a question which
if it Is not, should oe of interest to
every student in the University.
A large number of the students of
the University pay their way through
college in what may be called the
hand to mouth method. That which
they earn the previous summer just
about meets their needs for the ensuing acedemic year. If there are
any large extras they labor under a
These same students take part in
athlectics and they are sometimes injured. The result is as stated above.
Yet these students if they do not support the teams have no college spirit:
They are a drag on the college activities.
The question I wish to ask is where
is the spirit on the part of the student
body at large. These men support
the college when they are able, yet
the college does not in any way play
the game with them. These who are
crippled in sports cannot receive compensation for the time they lose but
surely we might assist them financially. The doctor's bills of those hurt
in representing the University should
be paid out of student activities funds.
So far I have based my argument on
the student's inability to pay, yet it
is also true if every student was more
than able to incur legitimately any
amount of bills.
By all the rules of fair play it is
the duty of the University to support
these students who support her.

The Literary Corner
The second meeting of a series of
political meetings which are being
held in the University, under the auspices of the Social Science Club took
place on Monday last, in the Auditor-;
ium, when the speakers for the occasion were M. A. McDonald, K.C, Liberal candidate for Burrard and Mayor
Gale, Liberal candidate for the centre
riding. A large crowd was at hand
and gave the speakers good attention.
M. A. McDonald was the first speaker and dealt lengthily with what he
considered the issues of the campaign.
He declared strenuously that the tariff;
question was not the main issue, and j
that there were many other questions
to consider. He dealt with the history
of the Union Government since 1917,
when the Unionist party was formed,
and said that the Union Government
had broken faith with the electors and
were now going to a dominion-wide
election, because of necessity, not
choice. Turning from this the speaker then outlined B. C. problems. He
stressed particularly the Pacific Great
Eastern Railway and stated that if a
Liberal government were returned to
power it might be a possibility that
this railway would be taken over by
the Canadian Government Railways.
Mr. McDonald said, however, he was
making no promise, but declared that
if elected he would strive to bring this
about. The speaker also mentioned
the "Dominion Lands" in the Peace
River district and the question of
Freight Rates, and stated it would be
his policy in the first case to do all in
his power to having the like of these
lands handed over to the Provincial
Parliament at Victoria, and in the
latter to strive for a suitable Western
Freight Rate which would enable the
trade of the Prairie to come West instead of going East as it now does.
Mayor Gale was then called upon
and in a highly humorous address outlined his stand in the campaign. He
said that he had accepted the nomination because be believed the Liberals
would be returned to power and that
as a member of a Liberal Government
he could bring to the citv that which
the city needed. "As Mayor of the
city," the speaker said, he ought to
know as well as anyone, if not better,
what was needed. He declared he
was not seeking office but that the office had sought him and that if elected he would do all in his power to forward the interests of Vancouver.
Mayor Gale paid a high tribute to the
work of Hon. H. H. Stevens in parliament during the last ten years and
said that Vancouver owed him much.
But, the mayor said, if the Liberals
were returned to power, then he in
parliament as a member of the government could do more for Vancouver
than Stevens in opposition. In conclusion, he extended an invitation to
the students to come to the different
two or three weeks, where the issues
of the Campaign would be discussed at
greater length than the present meeting allowed.

signing of agreements that lasting
peace can be brought about but only
through the minds of the nations,
standing firmly for peace.    .

Last Thursday night Science '23 got
its face washed and called for its best
girl. At the sign of the "Green Lantern" they deposited themselves merrily to the tunesome syncopation of
the twosome orchestra until an early
hour on Friday morning.
Each engineer arrived with a beaming smile, a cake, a girl. The latter
under his tender guidance soon had
her programme tilled to overflowing.
The girls formed a butterfly throng
with their dainty dresses and one and
all became decked with many colored
paper steamers which added much to
the general gaiety. No ice needed to
be broken as there was no ice to break,
the only coldness coming between
them being from Almonds. The girls
felt that nowhere had they met with
such an air of good fellowship.

acted as patrons and could not have
failed to have a good time, as did all
those present, even the committee.

"Joe" was heard everywhere. Bill
Graham filled his part admirably and
did not seem at all care-laden. Refreshments coming as a delightful
break in the programme left nothing
to be desired in daintiness and abundance.
All too soon the clock on the wall,
which was the only source of annoyance, warned the company that it was
time to disperse. The entire crowd
wished heartily that such a party was
a monthly occurrence. Did we have
a good time?    I'll say we  did!

- -BERKELEY, Calif.,—Superficial attraction for a "white collar" job was
given by Prof. J. H. Hildebrand of the
chemistry department as one of the
greatest failings of students in their
choice of their life-long careers. He
believes that young people choose
their lives on too objective a basis and
is convinced that many have taken up
their work upon some unconscious
logic as; "Many physicians have made
a great deal of money; I will be a
physician, therefore I will make a
great deal of money." "The best
thing that the University can do for a
student is not to give him training for
a single trade, but to train him to
think and act."

supervision by the S.R.C. as well.
Probably the creditable way in which
initiation was conducted this year had
something to do with the decision.

Clelland Suits are Noticed
"I'll bet that's a Clelland  suit"—that's what a young
fellow said to his chum today on Hastings Street, as he
pointed to a friend of his. We
thought it good but we weren't
surprised, for sure enough
there's a singular distinction in
them that you can't help noticing.

S. C. M.
At the wekly meting of the S. C. M.,
Miss Lowe, travelling secretary for
the women's section of the movement,
spoke on the "Personal Aim of the
Christian Religion." The central idea
of her remarks consisted of Christ as
the way to Go1. God was revealed to
man through Christ, and before the
socializing effect of Christianity could
be stroi.gly felt, the individuals composing that society must get in touch
with the spirit of God in Christ. The
meting was well atended.
The next meeting will be held at
Monday noon. Nov. 21, at which Dr.
Hutchinson will speak on the bearing
of the "Theory of Evolution in Relation to the Christian Faith."

An Ode to the Premier
It's called  "The  Legislature
Of the Students of B. C."—
A worthy judicature
Of all, including me.
The Hon. the Premier,
Stands up and brings in trask,
He hardly could be beanier;
We think it awfully rash.
He provides for confiscation,
Of things he can't control,
Without a moment's hesitation,
Don't you think that rather droll?
He hides behind the Speaker
When he is out of luck.
Whatever could be weaker
Than passing on the buck?
His policies are lacking
In everything but nerve.
But with Opposition backing
He never has to swerve
So here's  to the  Student Parliament—
That ghastly Student armanent—
That really rotten government—
The really hideous ornament
Of the students of B. C.
