Players'Club Holds
Annual Reception
New Members Entertained
On Friday evening, in the auditorium, the Players' Club held its annual
reception in welcoming to the fold all
new members of the club. A hearty
invitation was also tendered to all
former student members, and it was
interesting to see how the old members turned out. Professor Wood, the
honorary president, accompanied by
the president Miss Norah Willis, welcomed each guest as he or she arrived
upon the scene of festivity. In his
welcoming address, Mr. Wood bade
all members, new and old, lay aside
dull care and formality; the fact that
each was a member of the club should
serve as an introduction—regardless
of the fact that a committee had been
formed for that purpose.
Dancing began, the medleys being
led by Mr. Art Lord and Mr. Wood.
About 11 o'clock, a dainty supper was
served. The new members, as usual,
were in evidence with their keen appetites—probably the fact that older
members were waiters and waitresses
made the food taste even nicer. After
supper, dancing was resumed, while
a number of gaily colored balloons endeavored to rise to the ceiling—endeavored we say because long before
they had really had a fair start upon
their journey, they were in the possession of eager couples. Various
"pops" made known the fact that all
had not gone well in the pursuit. The
reception broke up at 12, and it certainly was not the fault of the committee in charge if there was anybody
who did not have a really good time.
Amongst those present were noticed:
Dr. Coleman, Dr. Clark, Mr. Larsen,
Miss Dorothy Adams, Miss Constance
Highmoor and Mr. Art Lord. The
patronesses were: Mrs. W. H. Wood,
Mrs. A. F. B. Clark, Miss Bollert,
Mrs. T. Larsen and Mrs. Coleman.
On Thursday, October 27, the Agriculture Undergraduate Society held
their second annual banquet in the
Citizens' Club with the professors in
agriculture and their wives as the
guests of the evening. In the first
after-dinner speech Dean Clement
made several announcements of interest. The faculty of agriculture in
U. B. C, he said, is at present the
second largest in Canada as regards
numbers of degree-course students
holding the junior matriculation certificate, now prerequisite in most
agricultural colleges. He also announced that Messrs. L. Bennett, A.
Blair, J. W. S. Pye would represent
U.B.C. as a dairy judging team and
Messrs. H. Riddell, G. H. Harris, W.
J. Riley, B. S. Sweeney and J. J.
Woods as a general judging team at
the International  Livestock  Show at
AL. BUCHANAN, Track Champion
Portland, Oregon. Mr. R. P. McLennan in his speech compared the farmer of yesterday to that of today and
congratulated the Aggies on their
choice of future work.
Mr.  P.  N. Whitley  and Mr.  G.  H.
Harris also gave short speeches.
Brockton Point, October 26, added
another quota of track meet honors
to Arts '24. The Faculty Cup and
the individual championships both fell
before the onslaughts of her athletes.
Plenty of opposition from all sides
added to the excitement, and an enthusiastic gang of supportors made
amends for the bad weather.
| To Buchanan, Arts '24, went individual honors with a total of 19 points,
closely followed by Livingstone, Arts
'24, with 15 points and Buckley of
Agriculture with 113 points.
"Buck" cleaned up in the jumps
proving himself a regular mudlark,
while Livingstone featured in the
sprints and hurdles and Buckley ran
nicely in the half-mile and the marathon.
An innovation in the shape of an
interfaculty tug-of-war caused great
excitement and both pulls went to

The formation of a Student Parliament at a meeting held at 8 p. m. on
Wednesday, October 26, marked an
epoch in the history of the Men's
Literary Society.
Mr. Hodson, Sc, '23, president of
the society and premier-designate,
showed how the parliament could
keep the Students' Council in touch
with college opinion on matters of
university interest and at the same
time afford its own members limitless opportunities for debate.
Mr. Cassidy, Arts '23, who has
accepted the leadership of the Opposition, supplemented Mr. Hodson's
remarks, in particular emphasizing
the need for all members to debate
and vote on all university questions
purely as their consciences dictated,
the party system being adopted for
purposes of organization and instruction.
Mr. Hodson then read the proposed
constitut.on, which, after two minor
amendments had been embodied, was
adopted unanimously.
After the Government and Opposition forces had found places on their
respective sides of the House, Mr.
Vogee, Arts '22, the Speaker, took
the chair and the f .rst sitting began.
The Premier at once introduced
three bills. These were the '"Physical Train.ng Bill," the "Book Exchange Bill," and the "ex-Students'
Athletics Bill," all of which gave rise
to spirited debate. A motion for the
first named to be tabled was carried,
the Speaker having to exercise his
casting vote. The second passed its
first read.ng with an amendment
brought in by the leader of the Opposition and the third was adjourned
for further discussion.
The business of the evening was
brought to a close with the presentation by Dr. Macdonald, Honorary
President   of    the    Men's    Lit.,  and

We met at a corner and turning
down a side street came to a lighted
entrance in a brick wall. Entering
we ascended the creaking stairs and
found ourselves in a passage. As we
went along the passage an anxious-
looking person came up to us, sniffed
and with an air of despair passed on.
In the room many people had assembled. Through the haze came the
drone of low voices, and, occasionally,
a burst of wild music from the far
The weird strains died away, a silence pervaded the room, and a person
of ruddy countenance announced the
reason of the meeting and the programme of the evening. We learned
that this person was the chief factotum of the lesser people present. He
called upon the honorary factotum of
the lesser people, by name of "Doc,"
to make a speech.
This person announced that he had
prepared a speech, but observing two
higher factotums present, felt unworthy of the effort and would tell a
story instead.
The next part of the entertainment, for so it now seemed this was
the purpose of the meeting, was by a
little lady, who recited a story on agriculture pertaining to a cow. It
was not only humorous but instructive, as were her next verses on a
little girl's observations on how to
become engaged. This had a rather
terrifying effect on some of the more
innocent, much to the amusement of
the  more experienced members.
A high factotum of the upper people was now called upon to speak. He
explained his odd attire by saying
that he had just left a banquet to be
with the boys, but let the cat out of
the bag when he stated that the banquet was going strong and that he
was due to sing if he stayed. We all
appreciated his sentiment in coming
to our gathering. He continued by
introducing the new mechanic factotum by saying that he built the first
airplane in Canada, but, as he was
present, evidently did, not fly it.
Once again the gathering was in
sympathy with the speaker.
A pathetic little song was delivered
by a classics factotum, who followed
it up by that immortal song, "Alou-
ette," with the accompaniment of
200 smoky voices in the chorus.
The mechanic factotum was now
called upon and immediately took a
crack at the climate by saying that
he heard Vancouver was w_*, but
that the rain was dry.
However, he said that he got wet
the day before, in fact soa..ju, to the
laughter of the meeting. Ha then

About ten years ago far-sighted
and intelligent people began to despair of the future of the drama. In
America the outlook was particularly
hopeless. The Broadway "shows"
] wilfully waived all right to that
title. The decline of the stage seemed
immanent. It was then that the
Little Theatre Association, was formed—an organization with new life and
vitality and very definite ideals and
The promise of its early days has
been amply fulfilled. Everywhere
throughout the United States there
are now Little Theatre communities,
whose objects are to promote the
study of the drama; to produce plays,
particularly one-act plays, not ordinarily given by travelling companies;
to develop the arts of costume, scenic
design and stage lighting. From the
beginning the Little Theatre has set
its stamp of approval only on plays
of first-class merit; it is now nothing
short of a power in the dramatic
world. The numerous brilliant writers of one-act plays owe their success to the Little Theatre.
In Canada there are two or three—
The Community Players of Montreal,
the Little Theatre Association of
Vancouver. The aims of the Little
Theatre in Vancouver are substantially those of the older organizations,
the production of fine examples of
dramatic art which would not in the
ordinary course of things be produced
on the commercialized stage, and the
development of the concomitant arts of
stagecraft. In addition it is designed
to encourage and provide facilities for
the production of plays by Canadian
Like so many Little. Theatres in
their early days, Vancouver's must
look for a place to produce its plays
in the suburbs until it becomes well
established; even if it could pay high
rents (which it can't) there ,is no
place in the central part of tne city
that is suitable. It will have to build
its own theatre—in time. Its present
home, then, is Templeton Hall,
Graridview (take Hastings East car),
and the house warming is tonight,
Thursday. For three nights, with the
first performance tonight, the Little
Theatre will present a bill of three
one-act plays, "Lonesome-like," by
Harold Brighouse, "The Intruder," by
Maeterlinck, and "The Stepmother,"
by Arnold Bennett. The new ideas in
stage setting and lighting effects are
an interesting feature of the plays,
particularly in "The Intruder."
Vancouver people often lament
their isolation from the good plays
and other things seemingly indigenous
to the East. The production of the
Little Theatre plays gives them an
opportunity not only to enjoy themselves immensely, but also to show
; their appreciation of the efforts to

critic for the evening, of his report,
which was full of encouragement for
the society.
The Premier and the leader of the
Opposition unite in urging all male
members of the student body to attend these meetings. Every man may
help the university and render the
advisory function of the Parliament
more effective by expressing his
opinions on the floor of the House.
The high standard of debate, which
results from the best speakers we
have taking issue on subjects about
which they have the deepest personal
convictions, renders a dull moment
Watch the Men's Lit. Poster.
The feature of the initial meeting of
the mock Parliament was the strength
of the Opposition, led by Harry Cassidy. For obvious reasons, very little
organization was possible. Yet on one
occasion a Government defeat was only
averted by the speaker's vote. The
bills introduced by the Government
met with considerable criticism, all
being rather loose in their phraseology, and one being ultra vires, as it
presumed to fine persons not under
control of the house.
The policy of the Opposition is one
of constructive rather than destructive criticism. The party hopes to be
of assistance to the Government in
enacting laws for the good of the university. A coalition government is
not desired.
Anyone agreeing with the general
policy of either party should take a
seat on the side of the house occupied by that party. It is the earnest
desire of both parties that no member
of the Men's Lit. remain in the gallery—it is reserved for the press and
visitors. Please bear this in mind
and take a seat with one of the parties.
The executive of the Opposition is:
Leader—Harry Cassidy.
Chief whip—Lome Morgan.
Chief lieutenants—Bill Riley, Norman Robertson.
Publicity secretary—Harry Bram-

University of Washington — "University of Washnigton Plays," a series of plays written last year by students in play writing, is the first book
of its kind to be published in the West

tragedy to comedy satire. It will be

Oregon Agricultural College —
"What's the matter with the boys?"
asks Dr. C. R. Matthis of the O. A. C.
health department. "The girls give
comparatively little trouble here at
the hospital and for every girl who
enters this office we have at least
nine men."
Dr. Matthis says that this would be
easily explained if the cases were only
of a nature that comes from hard
knocks and from athletics but that
the proportion of minor illnesses such
as colds and fevers are much more
prevalent among the boys than among
the girls. One of the nurses in the
health office offered the suggestion
that perhaps the reason why so many
more boys than girls were ill was due
to the fact that the girls took better
care of themselves.
"The boys would all die," replied
Dr. Matthis, "were they to parade
around as scantily clad as the girls.
Any place you look you will see men
walking around bundled up to their
ears in their heavy coats while the
girls have much less protection
against the cold. There is only one
answer to the question and that is
that the girls here are naturally more
healthy than the boys."

—Permission to publish a burlesque

Oregon Agricultural College—Do
you ever get the wrong fork at a dinner party? Have you difficulty in
managing an introduction tactfully?
How would you foil the advances of
a designing co-ed? What does one
do with one's manual and pedal extremities ?
These question—vital, it is believed,
to every man's social welfare—are to
be answered by Miss Mary A. Rolfe,
dean of women, at a meeting of all
male members of the student body
who care to attend, Tuesday night.
It is rumored that the men's gym will
have to be used to accommodate the
huge numbers of anxious men who
will flock to the event.
This is to be the first of a series of
lectures delivered by Miss Rolfe.    The
matter was suggested to her by several students who were of the belief
that a man's social education is incomplete until he has acquired at
least a measure of good form in etiquette. Other lectures will follow at
stated intervals.
Berkeley Davis, chairman of the
student assembly social committee,
will assist Miss Rolfe in practical
demonstrations of how it's done in
the best families.

The members of the Historical Society braved the drenching rain of
Thursday evening last and went to
New Westminster, where they had
their regular monthly meeting at the
home of Judge F. W. Howay. The
topic of the evening was "Spanish
America." Miss Louise Campbell, in
an interesting paper, dealt with the
religious and cultural state of the
country, and Miss Evelyn Gilbert
sketched clearly the political and ero-
nomic conditions. Judge Howay entered into the spirit of the discussion
that followed and provided not the
least interesting part of the evening
by his vivid accounts of early Spanish
explorations along the coast of British Columbia. He recommended to
any of his hearers who might be going
in for research work, this early Spanish exploration as a fruitful field.
It is not known whether it was
their zeal for the pursuit of historical
knowledge or a recalcitrant motor,
that caused certain of the ladies and
gentlemen to paddle a car along Columbia Street at midnight, but this at
least can be said: that all the mechanics were not asleep, and that everybody was back in time for lectures
next morning.

Among all the accusations which
have been brought against the University of British Columbia, there is
one whose absence is conspicuous to
those who are familiar with the particular woes of our sister universities. We have not been guilty of
putting faculty first, alma mater a
poor second. When we hear of the
internal dissensions and lack of unity
in which the energies of some Eastern universities are dissipated, we
should congratulate ourselves that
we are not similarly afflicted, and
perhaps it would be profitable for
us to find out how this comes to be.
The solution is to be found in the
inter-relation of faculties which has
always prevailed at this university.
Not only do the science students take
one year of arts, but the students in
arts, science and agriculture take
many of their courses in the same departments, from the same professors.
This is not the case in many of the
Eastern universities, which have a
complete staff of professors for each
faculty This not only leads to duplication of departments—which is an
administrative matter and outside
the present discussion—but means
that each faculty tends to become
a separate, independent unit, in many
cases located at a considerable distance from the others; and any common viewpoint is rapidly lost. Healthy inter-faculty emulation is replaced by opposition and animosity;
the idea of the university as a single
organism is obscured, and the loyalty
of the student body is devoted to the
various faculties, instead of the Alma
In U. B. C. the whole student body
is united on one campus, and many
members of the staff are considered
common property by all the students;
moreover these "mutual" departments
are the ones which receive first consideration when appointments are being made, and are given as soon as
possible their full quota of the best
professors available. The same policy, we are assured, is to be continued in that golden age when the
university is fittingly accommodated
at Point Grey, so there should be no
opportunity for the pernicious tradition of inter-faculty contention to
grow up.
So long as our faculty members remain as they are today, wise and
tactful men, holding the confidence
and respect of the student body, we
may have no fear that the university
shall ever cease to be true to itself
or become enervated by internecine
It is all very well for the "Ubyssey"
to devote itself to chronicling college
activities, and we hope, at any rate,
that our reports are read, but we are
not blind to the fact that what would
really endear us to our readers would
be humor. We have always room for
jokes—provided they are original and
printable, and have not appeared locally on the vaudeville stage.
But we need something more — a
humorous weekly feature, or several,
if possible. Up till the present the
"Ubyssey" has never been for very
long devoid of something of this sort.
Old readers will recall affectionately
"Cynica Gay" and "The College Cat,"
as well as "Dere Mertel," and ^his
was always the column to which the
human student first turned when he
received his "Ubyssey" each Thursday.
It is not our aim to have any of these
particular topics revived; they were
excellent in their day, but would
tend to become forced if continued too
long.    We hope for something fresh.
Surely among our number there is
somebody who has an idea along this
line worth exploiting. We seem to
be conscious of hearing a lot of promising remarks in the corridors, but
as members of the editorial board we
have not the time—assuming, of
course, that we have the ability—to
develop such a feature, so we ask for
the assistance of the students. We
will gratefully receive any offers or
suggestions. If you send any in, be
sure to let us have your name, so that
we can talk it over with you.

The first payment on the scholarships won at the spring examinations
is due on November 15. The scholarships total about forty-two' hundred
dollars, which, in itself, is a considerable sum, larger than the majority of
students realize it to be. If a successful scholar does not come back to the
university the following term, he may
have his scholarship reserved for a
year or so. This is the case with one
or two students this year. Everyone
is given a fair chance. The students
who were winners of last year's
scholarships are requested to call and
see the registrar by November 10 to
clear up any matters that may need
There has long been apparent in
the university a great need for some
means by which students may attain
practice and instruction in expressing
their opinions before a group of people. Why be trained to think clearly,
and form opinions, if one is unable to
express them intelligently and intelligibly? Various societies exist to
meet this need—the Women's Lit, the
Men's Lit, the Sigma Delta Kappa
and a number of clubs such as the
Letters, Classics, Historical Society,
etc., for the exchange of opinions and
ideas along definite lines—but what
a small degree of success has crowned
their efforts with regard to the great
majority of the student body is easily
seen at any meeting where discussion
is called for.
The number of students who can
express their thoughts before an audience is pitifully small. The realization of this brought about last year
an agitation for the establishment of
a course in Public Speaking such as
figures on the curriculum of some
American universities. The attempt
was unsuccessful, but a certain
amount of interest was roused with
the result that this year, thanks to
the kindness of two members of the
faculty, we have two definite classes
in Public Speaking.
The Women's class, of about fifteen
members under the leadership of Mrs.
A. F. B. Clark, meets each Monday
at noon hour in Room 33 and after a
short instruction the time is spent in
speeches and criticisms. Dr. McDonald takes the men's class, which numbers some thirty members, at three
o'clock of the same day. This class
is closed to further membership, as a
larger number cannot be successfully
handled at one time.
Our sincere gratitude is due to both
these instructors for their kindness—
especially to Mrs. Clark, since not
being on the faculty this year, her
class entails a special trip to Varsity
every Monday.

The   Editor   "Ubyssey":     Dear   Sir—
It would seem to be about time to discuss
the resumption in our University of military
All other Canadian universities of the first
rank have reorganized their contingents of
the C. O. T. C. Many have been conducting
training for two sessions since the close of the
recent war, and the current year will very
probably witness the re-adoption of a military
programme in all the other colleges of the
country. It may be said, in passing, that in
Britain and the United States such a case as
ours is exceptional.
To those who wish to argue against the
motion it may be said that traditionally the
judicious combination of the study of the arts
of peace and the theory of war has always
been the object of the ideal university education. Military fitness is regarded as obligatory
from the purely  intellectual viewpoint.
Throughout the country another generation
is responding to the call to enter the militia.
Locally, considerable progress na3 been made
in the reorganization of the various units.
People are beginning to wonder what stand
this University intends to take. There are
some who are ever on the look-out for evidence
of unpatriotic sentiments.
As an institution we have come to believe
that there is not much that is physically or
intellectually beyond our powers. What better
answer to our detractors, or what greater
satisfaction to ourselves could we give than to
possess the most efficient military establishment  in the province?
To  Editor  "Ubyssey":     Sir—
I would like to bring to the attention of the
student body what seems to me at the present
time to be a great need in our college life.
So far this year there have been no mass
song  practices.
Those in the past have had considerable
influence in developing that spirit of which
our college boasts. Surely we are not* going
to neglect them now. The lack of knowledge
of songs on the part of the student body at
the Stanford game was an evident blot on
what was otherwise an excellent exhibition of
student unity. This same lack will continue
to hamper general functions until the remedy
is applied.    That remedy is practice.
The musical society is certainly doing fine
work this year but might they not add this to
their programme ? And if not, we have a
marshall.     How about it?
Editor   "Ubyssey":     Dear   Sir—
There is one phase of college activity in
which our student body is particularly deficient. This is in the singing of college songs.
I know we are handicapped by not having a
song-book with music in it; but that is no
reason  why we should not  practice the songs

in the one we have.    We are not able to sing
any   song   through   in   an   energetic   manner.
, The absence of songs at our literary functions
is very noticeable.    It is in the interval before
i these meetings commence that singing makes
time pass pleasantly and swiftly and at the
same time makes a favorable impression on
outsiders who happen to be present.
A year or so ago a committee was formed
to collect songs and music in order to compile
a U. B. C. song-book. I think it is time we
were informed of the progress that this committee is making. In the meantime we ought
to resume the song practices that were held
occasionally last year. We need to know more
than the first verses of a few songs like
Clementine and the Darkies' Sunday School.
Yours sincerely,

The U, B. C. Rowing Club is now
able to make definite statements with
regard to its plans for the 1921-1922
season. The club is granted the use
of the equipment and the privileges
of the Vancouver Rowing Club.
Fees for all new members from the
U. B. C. will be $15 per year and the
U. B. C. year will date from October
1 for one year inclusive. All students
who wish to join must send in their
names to E. Greville-Jones, Sc. '25',
who will provide them with the necessary application forms for membership.
At present the membership of the
U. B. C. Rowing Club totals a dozen
new and old oarsmen, but if rowing
is to be firmly established as one of
the sporting activities of the U. B. C.
the membership will have to be increased. Unfortunately we are only
able to row during the winter months
when fine weather is conspicuous by
its absence; therefore, great enthusiasm is necessary, as the discomforts
of rowing in cold weather have to be
undergone before being fully appreciated.
As rowing is one of the major sports
of most of the colleges on this continent it seems only right that a college
with our sporting record should be
represented in this new field of athletics, for we have such splendid water
facilities available and the Vancouver
Rowing Club has done its best to help
the encouragement of this sport by
allowing us the use of their equipment.
This year it has been decided to
enter a crew against the J. B. A. A.,
and enquiries are also being made
with a view to arranging an intercollegiate race with Washington.
Mr. Hartley, who is an old oarsman,
has very kindly consented to coach
our men and it is hoped later on to
receive other coaches especially for
the purpose of training new men. It
is realized that many members who
wished to join have been down to the
clubhouse and have in the past been
sadly neglected, but this was due to
the lack of suitable coaches and also
to the fact that no one knew that they
were coming down.
If any student desires any information about the Rowing Club, it will
be given gladly by the executive.
The present officers of the club are
as follows: President, Cyril-Jones,
Sc. '24; vice-president, P. June, Sc. '24;
captain and secretary, E. Greville-
Jones, Sc. '25; vice-captain, W. Wells-

He sat in stately halls apart
Toying with a rose,
Calm in the knowledge
Of his faultless art.
With delicate pose
He learned to place, in the quiet night,
The last blue bit of mosaic
In his panel of light.
And the Little Gods all,
Pleased with the work of their child,
Indulgently smiled.
And their music filled the hall.
But, when the sound had died,
Strangely his soul spoke,
And he awoke,
And strode to the great doors.
Flinging them wide
He rushed outside
To the tumultuous night
With stumbling pace,
And felt
The wind upon his face;
Stretching to feel
With groping hands
For what was real.
Then the Great Gods arose
With jealous frown;
Hurling their thunderbolts
They struck him down.
He is a man distinct and individual,
to be found in no place in the world
but Oxford. He is as much and as
naturally part of the halls and colleges of Oxford as are the time-
stained panels and the mullioned windows. An Oxford man, separated by
many years from his undergraduate
days, and speaking from a whole and
steady vision, has said of the Oxford
don: "When he is a bachelor, as
properly he should be, his pupils are
his chief link with the world of affection, with mischievous and merry
things; and in exchange for this whiff
of life which he receives with each
yearly invasion of flowering youth
like the fresh scent of hay every
summer from the meadows, he furnishes those empty minds with some
humorous memories and some shreds
of knowledge."
He is a man, sensitive, and if not a
recluse by nature, then a recluse by
Oxford tradition. His outlook is not
narrow; rather it is circumscribed.
His mind is not necessarily conservative; more often it is merely carefully
protected. His words have the flavor
of rare old wine, his mind a fineness
in some cases like to gossamer. Walter Pater was an Oxford don; his delicate, beautiful style was evolved
during lonely evenings in high-ceil-
ing'd chambers, rich with shadowy,
historic glooms, and mornings when
the sun shone on the threads of the
spider-web across  his  window.
The Oxford don is a man preferring
to return to his college rather than to
go out into the world; preferring to
help other men to gain the heritage
of Oxford rather than to strike for
himself across new fields. He is "a
song bird grown old in his cage, having preferred fidelity to adventure."
We met Johnny Berto, who graduated with Arts '20, on the street the
other day. Johnny was as jovial as
ever. "Buenos Aires is a wonderful
city," he said, "and so is Rio. But do
you know, after looking over those
South American towns, the cities of
the Eastern States and the * Pacific
Coast, as well as those of Eastern
Canada, there is no place I would
sooner live than Vancouver. I have
come back here to stay." Johnny,
with' Harry Colgan, also of Arts '20,
has been wandering around the globe
since his graduation. He promised to
call at U. B. C. some day when business was slack and tell the boys about
his adventures.

Next week-end, from a Varsity rugger standpoint promises to be one of
the most important of the season.
On Saturday afternoon the College
Intermediate team plays the Centrals II at Brockton Point. The fate
of the Province Cup may hang on the
result of this match. Varsity must
win to keep in the running. For further details and explanation ask any
rugby enthusiast. Remember we
want a crowd.
On the following Monday (Thanksgiving Day) two games are carded,
both being at the Point. As a curtain
raiser to the big match of the afternoon Varsity III oppose Normals.
This will be the first time this season on which we shall field a straight
third team.
In the chief match of the day Varsity I makes its debut in the Mac-
Kechnie Cup series, meeting Vancouver Rep. A portion of the stand is
being reserved and each student
should make every endeavor to be
present. Up to the present, turnouts
this season have not been up to the
average. See to it that next Monday
at the latest brings such a state of
affairs to a close.
For times of these matches, etc.,
watch the notice board.
When the third team takes the
field next Monday afternoon the first
part of the season's programme will
be completed.
Owing to the exceptionally short
time in which teams have had to be
turned out, junior players have up to
the present not received the attention
they would otherwise have had. It is,
however, the intention of the rugby
committee to line up all available
talent before the close of the present season. Insufficient space prohibits the entry into further details,
but if every man who plays or wishes
to learn to play will turn out next
Wednesday afternoon, every effort
will be made to see that he is taught
the principles of the game and given
an opportunity to put them into practice.

On Saturday, October 29, the King
Edward High School campus was
the scene of a Varsity victory over
Rowing Club in the Intermediate
League, the score being 8-0.
Varsity won the toss and kicked
off, down hill. The play soon shifted to the Rowing Club half. Ten
minutes from the first whistle, after
pressing continually for some time,
Varsity went over near the posts
from an intercepted pass with Ed-
gett on the ball. This try was not
Play remained in the oarsmen's territory until within five minutes of
half time, when a rush carried our opponents into the Varsity twenty-five,
where, however, they failed seriously
to threaten our defense.
Working uphill in the second half
did not prevent the team from continuously pressing the Rowing Club.
For perhaps five minutes of the
whole second period of play the ball
was at the lower end of the ground.
Varsity did not increase their score,
however, until a few minutes before
time, when Morgan cut through and
scored by one of the posts. Plum-
mer's successful kick brought the
score to 8-0, where it remained at the
close of play.
There was a good attendance but
it would be of great assistance to the
yell leaders if the Varsity supporters
would keep more together.
The team played an excellent game.
Their condition was good and each
member proved worthy of his place.
The following faults were noted,
but should be easily corrected:
1. A few overhead and high passes
were in evidence. These resulted
in our opponents being able to intercept on  several occasions.
2. Th scrum when getting the ball
back in the loose can facilitate the
work of the half by forming up and
walking over it where occasion permits instead of heeling.
3. When a three-quarter cuts
through, the inside and wing men
must also cut toward centre, thus
making short, snappy passing possible. Saturday showed a great improvement in this last, but it is by
no means perfect yet.

NOVEMBER 3, 1921
And it came to pass in the country
of Bricol, in the fifth week of the
reign of King Whit, and on the second
day of the week, that a prophet
arose in that country and declared to
all the people in writing that the inner sanctuary of the king's house,
wherein abode all the chronicles and
the sayings of the wise, would be
open unto all the people at an hour
when, having finished their daily
tasks, they might partake of the dust
thereof freely. And some there were
who laughed him to scorn; others
said, "We will hear thee again on this
matter"; and yet others believed
"verily the fool is void of understanding."
Now at the dawning of the twelfth
hour upon the fourth day of the week
the mighty men of the city arose and
went out of the city by tribes unto an
open space afar off. And the battle
raged from the thirteenth hour until
the setting of the sun at even. Then
were the tribes numbered, each tribe
according to the victories of its
mighty men of valor. Now when the
numbering had been completed, the
scribes gathered the multitude together, and lo; Buck and Liv, of the
tribe of "AR," were acclaimed the
mightiest of all the men of the country of Britcol, and may their praise
be told even unto Poyngra, which is
by interpretation the land of hope
and glory. Now third among the
mighty men came Leebuck, he of
the tribe of AG. Yet truly a proud
heart goeth before a fall, for the men
of the tribe of SI got naught but that
they.got by Pull.
And now behold I tell you a mystery. . For it came to pass that on the
sixth day of the week that the Mimi-
cers and those who make faces came
together to worship their god "POSE."
And even the King Whit was not
there. Now of the Way of it, or the
Pomp of it, or the Manner of it I
know not, but what I say unto you is
about the Size of it. For the women
thereof did wear as apparel the web
of the crawling creature "SO" and
the skins of beasts, yet all together
they took unto themselves the forms
of the birds of the air. And the men
also thereof came like unto the beasts
of the field, for many of them did
wear "tails." Then behold, as they
were all gathered together in one
place the musicians did strike upon
the sacbut and upon the psaltry and
upon the harp, and the worshippers
did walk around in one another's
arms to the strains of the strange
music. Now when the night was far
spent and it was drawing toward the
dawning of the seventh day they began to take themselves to their
abodes. But the rain fell and the
floods came, wherefore, my beloved,
and the rest of you, walk not with
the unearthly nor stand in the way of
the shimmiers.
Oh the seventh day of the week
did the men of SI depart unto a place
beyond the country of Britcol to worship their gods, NICK and BACK, and
their doings and the rest of the acts
of the men of SI are they not written
in the book of the mind of SI.
In spite of persistent rumors to
the effect that the B. C. Electric car
to Capilano was indisposed, a large
party of enthusiastic hikers from
Art's 24 caught the 1:20 ferry last
Saturday. The weather, having done
its—oh.worst, cleared favorably, and
the walk from the car terminus to
the hotel was wonderfully exhilarating. In fact, many of the class were
so enamoured of the "forest primeval"
that they tramped a mile or so further
on and viewed the flood damage up
the canyon road.
Gathering together in the dance
pavilion about five o'clock, the girls
prepared supper while the boys built
a roaring blaze in the fire-place, or
helped Dr. Eastman in his efforts to
coax music from the electric jazz machine. The latter, however, proved
both perverse and unpatriotic, declining to accept five Canadian coppers in
place of an American nickel, and generally behaving in a coy and uncompromising manner.
Supper was followed by a most enjoyable dance, after which preparations were made for departure, and a
tired and happy throng, etc., etc., etc.
ARTS '25
On Friday, November 4, the "Freshette" will entertain at a tea in the
auditorium from 4 to 6. Miss Bollert
has kindly consented to make a short
address and there will be a musical
programme. The women of Arts '25
are proving themselves worthy of a
prominent position in the university
activities. Rumor has it that there
are other surprises in store for the
Freshettes. Hitherto, first year
students have contented themselves
with the- traditional "class party,"
but this year things are a little
changed. The tea is the first of its
kind ever given by first year women
and it is hoped that all members of
'25 will turn out and support it. A
capable committee has been appointed
to look after the introductions and
an enjoyable time is anticipated.

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.
An' mind, the prices are away
cheaper than they were for those

Members of the Engineering Discussion Club heard an interesting talk
"Diamond Drilling" by Mr. C. A. Mc-
Vittie, Sc. '23, at the regular meeting
of the club last Thursday noon. Mr.
McVittie knew his subject well, and
was able to .give detailed information
on the mechanism of the diamond drill,
its operation and use.
Owing to the lack of time, the talk
by Mr. C. S. Evans, Sc. '23, on "The
Connaught Tunnel" was postponed
until the next meeting. Mr. A. Light-
hall, the honorary president and critic
of the club, gave a short criticism of
Mr. McVittie's speech. As the object
of the club is two-foid, that of giving
the members training in public speaking as well as that of imparting information on engineering subjects, it
is Mr. Lighthall's part to point out
defects in the manner of delivery of
each speech, a delicate office which he
performs  with  considerable tact.
The business before the meeting was
that of electing a new president to
take the place of Mr. Reg. Hodson,
who is resigning. Mr. C. S. Evans,
Sc. '23, was unanimously elected to
that office. Mr. W. Ure, Sc. '23, was
elected as publicity agent of the club,
which has recently been admitted to
the literary and scientific department.
Miss Ethel Johns, Assistant Professor of Nursing, entertained the
girls of the nursing course at "Ye
Little Brown Inn" on Saturday evening last. Mir Johns gave a very interesting ir* £.;■ talk in which she
reported the work covered at a conference of directors of nursing from
hospitals in affiliation with universities, held at Kansas City recently.
Eleven such universities were represented, ten from United States and
one from Canada—the University of
British Columbia. Miss Johns' opinion was that while there were difficulties to be met by all the directors,
our own course at University of British Columbia compared favorably with
the others. An informal discussion
followed after which the students adjourned to another room where a very
dainty supper was served.
The nursing girls intend to organize
and a meeting for this purpose will
be held al the home of Miss Dorothy
Rogers, #fcple Street, on Saturday
evening, November 5.
