Eastern Track Jaunt
To BVCoasidered
Wilt Varsity send a team of traok
and field men across the Rookies this
year to compete in tbe Western Canada track and field meet at Edmonton f
About this time last year there was
a lot ot discussion about sending a
team back to Saskatoon to the western meet, and, after muoh wrangling,
a very poorly conditioned team made
a rather Weak showing in their jaunt
The time has come for Varsity to
come to an important deoislon. Are
the track body going to continue to
compete in both the Western Canada
meet and also run a heavy Bprlng
intercollegiate programme, or drop
one or^he other? It Is perfectly evident that Varaity cannot send a team
back to the western meet In the condition that will do credit to tho University track circles. To send a team
West Just for the sake of keeping In
the Western circuit and using up
track funds that might be used to
better advantage In a stronger spring
programme 1b poor business. It Is
true that If we do not send a team
east this year we automatically lose
our right to stage the meet ln Vancouver next year but that has its advantages as well as its disadvantages.
It is a black eye to Varsity track to
send a man East that Is only about
one half his usual form because he has
to do all his training in two weeks.
If the Varsity men did as well at the
Western meet as they do tn some ot
their coast meets it would surely be
worth the expense, but otherwise lt Is
Just how good tho men will prove
In the tryouts Is yet to be discovered,
but unless they show exceptional class
or approach their spring marks, they
are not the calibre to represent
Varsity. Probably few ot the Western
colleges could stand up against B. C.
In a dual meet with the privileges
offered our college for spring training
from January to April, but the men In
the prairie universities so far have
crowded out our men, except in 1935.
Among the possibilities to make the
trip, If they show promise, are Charles
Simmons, former Drake star, who has
signified his Intention of coming out,
and Harold MoWl lllums, at 880 yards.
Simmons has a high mark ot 1:67,
while McWIlllams Is about 1:08. In
the mile, Bill Selby might show his
heels to the western field it he runs
as he did in the spring. He has never
been beaten on the coast this year,
and he Is anxious to keep up his reputation.
In the pole vault, Alpen and Morris
would have to climb over 11 feet ia
the tryouts to Insure their good showing at the meet. Alpen missed at 11
feet 3 in the spring, but  he looks
The Student Christian Movement ot
Canada Is a fellowship of students ln
all the colleges in the Dominion,
Wbleb, by Its connection with tbe
World Student Federation maintains
an effective link between the lite and
thought of Canadians and ot students
throughout the world. "The Canadian
Student" magasine Is the common
voice of the movement.
The chief basts of Student Christian
Movement Is the conviction, (or tbe
willingness to test the conviction),
that ln Jesus there may be found
supreme social and personal values.
But the door is not shut Upon values
from any source; henoe, Tagore came
over from the Fall Conference in Ontario. Since the movement is "student" dissent is as welcome as assent.
S. C. M. of U. B. C. will offer opportunities of fellowship, study and discussion; public addresses by leaders
in the several branches of knowledge:
week-end retreats at Intervals during
the session: and a meeting place for
every shade of opinion,
Tne movement has no formal membership. Ail students are eligible by
the single condition of lntereut in Its
aims, For Information look in at
Auditorium 818 or see. the notice
Students of the third and fourth
years who wish to apply for membership in La Canadlenne ahould hand in
their applications by Saturday noon.
They should be addressed to the secretary, May Chrlstlson, and left ln the
Auditorium letter-rack. Students who
are anxious to Improve their French
conversation and also those interested
ln dramatics are urged to apply.
A meeting of the executive will be

watch the notice boards for further
good to go to 12 feet next spring.
In the sprints Tom Burgess will
need a lot of conditioning to approach

would probably cop tbe meet
Harloy Hatfield should climb over
5 feet 10 inches in the high jump before the end of the track season ln
the spring, but just what he will do
this fall is doubtful.
The whole matter should be carefully thought out and the material

Back In our old farming house I used
to sit and read
College Humour, and think how nice It
would be to lead
A college life, be the campus hero and
In the Morning Dase,
See my picture and underneath read
words of noble praise,
For the way I won the game when
our team played Vassar,
And how the folks would gossip and
not a word would mar
The name of their own John Henry
who went away to school,
And made a name for Sardis that
youngster was no foot,
They say that as a little chap he was
the village Imp,
But when he went to college he was
no village simp,
He showed the boys up college way
that though your king of hicks,
That same hick ln football clothes had
the very best of kicks.
And when the game was almost lost
be thought of his dear pa,
Oh how proud he'd be if he won the
game for his old alma ma,
And then he made a Oreek Club, It
was the very best,
they gave him fancy frat pins to
wear Upon his vest,
And in this college club he met a lot
of tony boys,
Who owned big cars, stepped pretty
girls and made a pile of noise.
Now just like other boys who start
to step at night,
His college chums influenced him to
get a little tight,
As all of those who know the dope on
college life will tell
Everyone who hits the flask Is bound
to go as well
As lots ot other boys have done in
college days gone by.
Their dying call excelsior, the limit
Is the Bky,
But 1  would not be thought, I  the
usual college type,
I would lead a noble life and when
the time was ripe,
Show the profs, deans and common
rabble of the place.
Nothing short of Cooildge was behind
my saintly face,
How times have changed and here I
am behind this prison wall,
No king or kings am I and in the eating hall
I have to munch my nourishment amid
the rasping crunch
Of  people eating raisin  pie or any
other lunch,
That  they can  grab when  once  the
noisy noon-day bell
Releases  them from a morn  of—lectures.

McHootch Suggests
Professor Oargle McHootch, the
pre-eminent authority on University
affairs has again kindly consented to
honor us with a few suggestions (or
the amelioration ox varsity life. This
interview is a great scope for the
"Ubyssey," ns no other paper lu the
world has yet been able to secure the
flrst hand opinions of the famous
"All great reforms," began Prof. McHootch, "strive to make happier the
lot of man by mitigating his woes,
ThlB 1b at tho root of my present suggestion. I seek to give consolation to
those unfortunates upon whom the
hand of destiny has fallen too heavily.
"My plan Is this,—to form a University Insurance Company. For instance, lt would Insure students
against flunking in examinations.
For every subject ho failed ln,
the student would receive a sum
equal to the cost ot a supplemental examination. The amount of
the premiums would be determined by
the standing of the student at Christmas. Those who made first class
marks would bare to pay only a nominal amount while those who flunked
would have to pay a much higher
premium; Oood scholars could be insured agalnBt not getting first or second class honours, but for this the
premiums would have to be very high.
"Of course this Insuranoe scheme
need not be confined to exams. Athletes could be insured against the loss
of games, with varying premiums depending on their own and their opponents previous showing, Classes as
a whole could be insured against losing the Art '20 Relay, but naturally
Art '80 would not be allowed to take
out one of these policies.
"A policy whioh would prove very
popular would be one giving compensation for drawing a "lemon" at the
class "Draw," A committee of impartial men would be appointed to
decide whether or not the claim of
having drawn a lemon was Justified,
tn the case of two students, who had
been cast together by fate, both claiming compensation, tbe Insurance Company would only pay the one whom
the committee deolded had been tbe
most unfortunate.
"Students fond of Cafeteria Pie
could, take out a Sickness Insurance
Policy, but they ,also, would have to
pay rather high premiums. This
Sickness Insurance would also cover
brain-fever and nervous prostration
brought about by overworking, but
nothing extra need be charged for
the number of claims to be paid after
"But ln conclusion," continued the
Professor, "lot me give a word of
warning. The Insurance Company
should not issue any Life Insurance
Policies; nf least not to Freshmen, as
the Initiation would speedily render
Ihe concern bankrupt."

Watohlng a little fellow with a "I

Way baok ln tbe haloyon days of
1989, when the flrst batch of poor klda
from down tbe avenue started their
Initial trek out to this unfinished pile
of stone and plaster, and listened as
tbe olass ot 1981 bave done, with open
mouths at the sage sayings of Faoulty
and Students, they gasped at this
premised land.
"All things come to him that waits,"
runs the old proverb, but as time goes
on tbe modernists keep stressing the
unfinished part of this sentence, and
that is "keep working." As an opening message to the freshman olass ot
1981 let lt be said that there Is lots
to be done ln tbe way of Improvement
ln tbe athletic lite ot this University.
When the Frosh class of '89 bung up
their hats on the newly painted pegs,
matters were not nearly as rosy as
they are now. The campus was as
rough as unkempt bobbed hair, tbe
cinder traok was as undefined as the
Trail of '98 and the boys washed the
perspiration trom their athletic brow
with melted ice water. Matters have
changed somewhat, girls and boys, and
compared to the funny days ot two
years ago this settlement 1b a little
heaven. The campus at the present
time Is not too bad and Varsity can
turn out good teama with a llttlo
effort. Thanks to the generosity of
the student body, work was allowed to
continue on the cinder path during tbe
Bummer, under tbe supervision of Jack
Buchanan, and a promising traok is
being built. The showers have been
installed behind the Aggie Building
and offer at least a chance for a cleanup.
What do these things represent to
the class of '31? Just a little bit of
hard work and a few trials that all
go toward building a great school on
this point of land ln Western Canada.
Many students have come to British
Columbia, and probably many will be
disappointed because the athletic
equipment is not as grand as you had
at the big prep, school where you
won your toga. II is a hard thing to
forget your high school days and put
your scholastic athletic triumphs behind you. It la hard to got behind the
wheel of a self-governing student body
and do your part toward making tho
U. B. C. one of the best schools on the
Coast but it must be done. It is up to
the class of '31 to back whatever
athletic policy this university may
pursue, and whatever branch of sport
you may choose, give it your constant
attention and interest. Only in this
way can athletics at the U.B.C. progress, as the attitude of the individual
student is reflected on the general
athletic personality ot the University.
The sporting spirit developed ln this
University depends entirely on the
Class of 1931. It is just as easy to
make your University athletically alive
to the possibilities that await lt, as
it is to allow the athletic situation to
drift into an unprogressive mud
puddle. Remember that the support
you give the sport you are taking part
ln, the interest you give to every
other sport, and the whole-hearted cooperation you render to the athletic
directorate, will determine the spirit
that haa been devoloped In the University by the time you graduate. Ia
It worth It? You may feel that you
are not physically able to undertake
the burden of actively competing ln
any branch of sport. If such Is the
case do not use that excuse to become
a college nonenlty. Thero Is a crying
need for leaders at British Columbia.
Kvery branch ot sport at this school
neods a man who is Interested in thnt
particular department und who Is willing to Klve the liUle tlmo required In
organising or managing a sport, If
you are actively conuocted with other
university affairs you will havo your
hands full, hut for tho student who la
looking for an outlet to lite university
Hplrlt your work Ih laid out before you.
Let It be mild of ''tl that they left
something for their university besides
a lot of muddy footprints ou the nlco
clean floors.
It Is going to take some tall hustling
by Varsity Canadian Rugby men to
pound a football machine into shape to
tackle tbe Viotorla Rep squad when
they come across on Saturday to meet
tbe Blue and Oold Big Four entry ln
tbe game.
Coach Dr. Burke la confident, however, that, despite tbe tardiness of
some of the men ln reporting, he Is
going to bave a team ln tbe field that
will shape up well. A few new
arrivals In the ranks will strengthen
tbe Varsity team considerably, and, as
they bave the makings of a good line,
matters are not so bad.
A little whippet of a fellow from
down around Stanford University, in
Palo Alta, by the name of Charley
Whltworth, looks promising to share
one of tbe baokfleld berths. He Is
showing a lot of olass, and teamed
with Currle, Helmer Straight. and
some of the Old Guard, he will work.
Tbe Big Four League looks good to
go over with a bang this year and
Varsity should fight hard to meet the
prairie winners ln the Dominion play-
offs. Last year Varsity vowed that
after the Alberta game they would be
the team In the play-off this year and
everyone Is looking forward for them
to make their threat good.
* The a C. winners will get a trip to
the prairies this year and that is
worth the effort alone.
The entries this year are New Westminster, Vancouver, Varsity and Victoria, a truly powerful array of squads,
The game is going great on the Island
and also in New Westminster, and
Varsity will have a hard fight to keep
from losing out
Varsity Fighters In
North Coast Tourney
When the Varsity team gathered in
a lot of stray mitts down in the Washington gym last winter they were
Immediately invited to come down
again this year and gather in some
that they missed last year.
Asaiatant graduate manager Jesse
Jackson, of the University of Washington, was in town a few days ago
and In a talk with Pinky Stewart,
captain of the last year's squad, he
expressed the sincere hope that the
University of British Columbia mitt
team would venture south again this
year. Last year Washington was the
host to the B. C. team, and by rights
lt Is Huskies trip to Vancouver, but
they can't see It that way and so lt
looks as though a Varsity team will
go south again this year.
The Washington student body has
just had a rather expensive sport barn
finished and they are anxious to
entertain B. C. in a mitt test, to
christen the newly plastered walls.
Jack Kask, ot Arts 28, Is the head
man In the Bhow this year and he is
going to start right away lining up
material for the boxing season.
Varsity boxers are going to start
getting into shape right away and

should make things merry for Victoria

The formation of aa Inter-college
Canadian Rugby league Is being tor*
warded, by the B. C. Canadian Rugby
body and insofar as the suoeesS of this
new division depends on the Varsity
Frosh lt is Important to Varsity.
Columbian College of New Westminster, and Vancouver College, both
prep, and college entrance sohools of
high standard, are anxious to get Into
the grid game if Varsity Frosh will
come ln and make it a triumvirate.
This plan looks very acceptable on
the surface and the Canadian body in
the University will look after coaches
and all league arrangements lt tbe
Frosh will show the proper enthusiasm. Duncan Todd, of Arts'88, la
looking after arrangements and all
those Interested ahould algn tha list
that will be left ln the common room.
In order to settle any doubt as to
the strength ot this new league It may
be mentioned that both Vanoouver
College and Columbian prep, are taking tho game up for the flrst time and
their men will be very Inexperienced.
The men that Varsity wants to turn
out are those that never saw a foot,
ball except in a sports oatalogue and
never played any game but checkers
in the corner grocery store. Before
you leave school you may be the college grid star, so sign up. *SA

Frosh and Intermediate Rugby
Teams are Victorious
Arts' Senior Team Loses to Rowing Club
Varsity opened tbe rugby season with two wins out of three. Arts sen-
tors losing 17-11 to Rowing Club; the Frosh winning by default from Kltsllano
Sad Varsity Intermediates trouncing Meralomas 20-8. The loss of the senior
game came somewhat as a surprise as Arts were strengthened by the Inclusion
of several powerful Science bruisers, but lack ot condition and teamwork
was what spelled defeat for Dean Coleman's boys. The Frosh had what was
probably tbe smoothest little greensweatered squad ever assembled all ready
for aotlon on Lower Brockton; only to have the beach boys default, but the
' yeifltngs will probably ring up a fighting victory easily this Saturday.

A. M. S. President
Outlines Plans
lor Initiation
At an assembly of the Freshman
Class during the noon hour on Thursday last, Mr. Leslie Brown, President
of the Alma Mater Sooiety, outlined
to the new students the plans for
their Initiation.
In brief, the following is the program to be carried out by the Students' Council. First: until further
notice all Fresh are required to display upon their chests a slip of green
ribbon and upon their backs a white
placard Inscribed with the name of
the wearer printed In legible letters.
Secondly: on Wednesday morning
promptly at a quarter past eight all
Freshmen must congregate In Room
100 of the Arts Building. Likewise
all Freshettes must gather ln the Auditorium. For fifteen minutes both
meetings will practise the College
Songs and yells. Then at half after
eight o'clock each meeting will adjourn; and the Frosh will be marched to the cairn which is in front of
tbe Science Building. Here the significance of this memorial will bo impressed upon the minds of the newcomers, and the story ot the stone
told to them. At the conclusion of
tee ceremony the Class of 'SI will be
expected to make solemn attestation
of Its loyalty to the Alma Mater by
taking an oath. This done, the assemblage will move to the cafeteria
where coffee and rolls will be supplied without payment.
Lectures for Wednesday afternoon
bave all been cancelled. After meeting in the Auditorium at about half
peat twelve, the Frosh will be conducted to the oval of the track. The
men will then be ordered to clean up
tbe grounds and to level them with
tbe roller. Finally, at two o'clock, a
program of sport* will be given. Members of the upper years will compete
with the Freshmen and among other
events there will be relays both for
the men and for the women, and a
soccer game In which fifty Freshmen
will battle with a like number of Seniors, Juniors and Sophomores. And
when the contests are over the members of the new year '31 will be allowed to go home.
field goal from about twenty-five yards
out. A few minutes later Leroy broke
through the team with a beautiful
swerving run only to be brought down
close to the line by the most spectacular tackle of the afternoon by the
redoubtable Squiddy Maclnnes. From
a scrum close to tbe Arts' flag Pink-
ham wormed through the backs for
the Club's second score. Leroy converted bringing the score to 9-8. Just
after the klckoff Morris, of Varsity,
sustained a hard kick in the eye,
necessitating his removal to hospital.
Rowing Club forced the pace again,
scoring another try. Arts returned
with a rush, Baton going over for a
nice try which Was not converted,
bringing the score to 12-11. In the
dyiug moments of the game the Olub
added one more try, Leroy converting.
It was poor condition and the inability to place-kick which lost Arts
the game. The cyclonic fighting finish which was the feature play of
last year's Miracle Men was distinctly missing on Saturday. Two or three
more practices should remove both
these deficiencies. In the baokfleld
Maclnnes, Tupper, Kelly, Baton and
Barratt were the pick while Sinclair,
Morrfa and Murray were the most aggressive forwards. The line up was:
Maclnnes, Wolfe, Estabrook, Tupper,
Kelly, Barratt, Eaton, Barratt, Sinclair, Morris, Fraser, Farrls, Fanning,
Murray, Jones.
The Intermediate trampled all over
the Meralomas in the second game.
There was never doubt as to which
team was winning, the ball being
constantly in the Meraloma end. The
first half ended 6-0, Chappell and Farrlngton scoring. In the second half,
Fell, a real find from K.M.C., scored
three and Farrlngton one. Bull
Ohappel, Hume and McLockie were
good on the backfleld, while Farrlngton, Shields and Mason played well In
Ihe scrum.
Four teams are being fielded Saturday, the highly touted science squad
swinging Into action. Full attendance
at the Rugby meeting In App. Sc. 100
to-day at noon and at the practice tomorrow at 3 on the oval is accordingly
requested. Both coaches will be on

With this our second Tissue we foel it incumbent upon iih to clear
away some of the smoke that is nocesHnrily produced by the confusion of commencement to give our readers—curious and interested,
we hope—some little glimpse, however vaijtie, of the banner flying
from our mast, some slight idea of the chart we shall use to guide
lis through the year.
It is not the part of a college paper to start with a definite, iron-
bound policy. Being in a more than ordinary sense a "vox populi,"
its attitude towards the affairs with which it has to deal must bo as
flexible as thoso affairs are numerous. As tho official organ for re-
Cording and criticising student activities, tho outlook of the paper
must be sufficiently broad to allow it to accommodate itself comfortably to the varied situations of student life.
There is one thing, however, to which we shall adhere amid this
welter of genial tolerance and broad-minded generalities. The chart
which guides us is that of student interest. If our readers remain
sufficiently awake to display any interest we shall feel that we are
on the right course. If, by some mischance, we fail to evoke any
response we must change our tactics.
The support of our readers ia essential. The paper cannot function to ihe satisfaction of all unless it has the support of all. We ask
for your praise if we shall have earned it, your disapproval if we
Shall merit it. But above all let US have your criticism; it is worth-
less unless you express it in the hearing of those who may profit by
As to the banner which is flying from our mast—we have adopted
the wise suggestion of our predecessor; "We hove opinions, and we
shall print them; it ia not only our right, it it* our duty."
Onoe more the old question of initiation lifts its hoary head
and grins ohallengingly at a new Students' Council. Once again it
hear* the corridors of the University resound with futile arguments
concerning the ancient ceremony. And once again old Initiation will
emit g sigh of disappointment before going asleep for another year,
With its status unsolved.
The trouble in dealing with initiation is that wo try to be logical.
College students ought to be seriously logical in all their activities—
but fortunately they are not. The fact remains that initiation can-
, not be confined to the rules of Aristotle.
Two entirely divergent points of view nre involved in the initiation question. The first ia that freshmen, by the very nature of
things, cannot help beinjfj raw. They will get over the trying affliction as they got over measles and whooping cough. If this in ho.
they should be assisted, and not punished for their unfortunate state.
The mere fact that sophomores have attended college for one year does
not give them the right to make the lot of a freshman a little purgatory on earth, According to this school of thought, students should
he rnado to feci a part of the I'Diversity, and a welcome addition to
the student body. Tt should he the duty of the upper years to make
the verdant ones feel at, home, incidentally instilling a spirit of cooperation.
On the other hand, there is a school of thought that maintains
that initiation is one of the big events of a student'» career, and on
that account should be aa lively as possible. Graduates look hack
on it as one of the most amusing incidents of their lives, and chuckle
over tales of tar, paint, and treacle. On the whole, they never regret the experience. Tradition is one of the driving forces in college
life, and the tradition of an ordeal goes hack to the most ancient rites
of religious orders and secret societies. The old form of initiation
provided an outlet to the surplus energies of the freshman, nnd showed decisively of what stuff they were made. The freshman at once
realized that he was at last in college.
For the past two years, initiation became a mongrel, with ves-
tigal remains of its widely divergent ancestry. The result was that
it pleased no one—not even the frosh. The ceremonies were not impressive, many of the regulations were purely asinine, and on the
"horseplay" side, the honors last year were decidedly with Arts ','10.
This year the Council has squarely tackled the problem. It outlined a program, and appealed for co-operation to make it a success.
In addition it came out point-blank with a call for suggestions. If
initiation is unsuccessful this year, it is entirely the fault of the Student body, and not of its elected representatives.
The critics have had their chance.
Father was a country doctor-
perhaps because it was the least
remunerative of all situations. From
his large, grimy offloe over the Post
Office, he watched over, laboured for,
—and not seldom scolded and grumbled at—the whole town, as earnestly
us did any fond parent over an erring child. Certainly father was the
only aristocrat. Everyone from the
mayor to the Chinese laundry-man regarded him with a respect, not unmixed with fear whtch was at the
Hume time extended to his car, his
family and his home. To his family
—when he became aware of their
existence at all—his attitude was one
of consistent disapproval which was
forever turning to indulgence when he
leust wanted It to do. They knew
better than to agree with him at any
time; he required to be prodded Into
those long and eloquent Invectives
against the drug traffic, the Liberal
Party, the Incompetence of farmers
and the world in general, his wife
putting up a brave fight at flrst, but
soon snrrending to allow father's ego
to flourish in triumph.
"One of these days," father would
say, "I Bhail get an X-Ray." He did
not get around to it, however. There
were several things to which he did
not quite get around—collecting his
bills, tor example, and taking a vacation. In the mean time he scolded
and cajoled the village into good
health, and In the evening smoked his
pipe and read his paper.

Tho attention of all fair-minded
students Is called to a practice which
has become very annoying. Unnecessary conversation In the Library
between those so-called students who
have no ileslro to work themselves
und who therefore feel called upon to
prevent other people from studying,
has assumed such proportions that
conditions are almost Intolerable. The
Library Is the only building on the
campus which is reserved solely for
study, and It should therefore he regarded as such by anyone who wishes
to take advantage of Its excellent
equipment. Any member of the University who conducts himself In such
a way as to create a disturbance In
the building Is not only causing Inconvenience to others, but also displaying
his own Iguornnce and selfishness lu
a conspicuous manner, tt Is hoped
that no further appeal will be necessary In order t:> stamp out this In-
conslsternle practice, and thai every
student will regard the matter as one
worthy of his personal attention.

The following literary curiosity was
at first treated with the contempt
that lt deserved. On second thought,
however, we fished tt out ot the
waste paper basket and put it oa the
"Muok'1 page with the assurance that
It will cause some amusement to our
readers. The reason tor its iate appearance In these columns Is that the
editor ot that Journal ot Christian
toleration, the "Bisector," (alias
"Deacon"), reserved It until after the
"Ubyssey" had ceased publication for
the year.
"tt anything were needed to emphasise the need ot Bible reading in
schools, It can be furnlshod by a
perusal of the paper Issued by the
students in the University of British
Columbia. There wa* a time when
this was a bright and readable.paper,
which any parent oould put Into the
hand of his boy or girl without fear
ot contamination, but it has been
degenerating sadly ot late, and its appearance now is not such as will
inspire confidence In, or respect tor,
the students in our University. One
of its four pages, entitled "The
Hellusay," is filled with the poorest
and most Insipid kind of profanity
that we ever read. No wonder a lady
student writing to the Editor says:
"This term, t have been rather faintly
amused by the policy of the Ubyssey.
It has been priding itself on its destructive criticism and, like a youngster on its first adventure, it is revelling in the idea that It Is being
very wicked." She goes on to ask
what is the function ot a college paper
and what role it should play In
student activities, and concludes that
tbe Ubyssey has become a superfluous
organ, and that unless its policy is
changed "it would be advisable to
abolish the paper and save such a
wasteful expenditure of student fees."
Our sympathies go out to the New
York broker who, in court the other
day, claimed the right to put his
twenty-year-old daughter across his
knee and administer chastisement in
the good old-fashioned way. It the
boys who run these profanity columns
had had more of that at home, they
would have found something more
edifying to put in their paper. They
might even have developed a real
sense of humour."

While Just to fight they get the dough.
Now if those dubs had brains like

But any time they want a trade

About the time when "goody goody"
and "Oh ain't that peachy" were national cubs words, and about Alx years
before Steve Brody took his sensational nose dive from Brooklyn bridge,
evil-minded upper class men in the

be a fitting climax for the entertainment ot the newly arrived freshman.
So, with all the Iniquitous ingenuity of tho Borgia they decided that

Thirty acres look like a nickel movie
back in 1900. While the boys and
girls were sweltering In close quarters
and as uncomfortable as a fat man
In a Turkish hath, the seniors, sophs
and Juniors sat around In tbe Lester
arena and enjoyed the Roman holiday. Don't forget, children, that this
all took place when Canadian womanhood wore her hair in wonderful plies
on the top of an unpowdered face and
bobbed hair was as scarce as a horse
whip In Detroit. The men were al-
most nn funny as the girls and tholr
classy horse collars were mo light
under their ears that any movement
exept from the hips was sure strangulation. Dancing was a real exorcise
In those days. A dance programme
was a combination of waltzes, foxtrots, one-steps, two-steps and three-
steps, and If anybody essayed to
attempt the Alabama Sugar strut ho
would have been found out and
followed or Immediately seized and
troated tor a combination of St.
Vitus Dance and lock-jaw. Well, well!
how times have changed.
After Paul Whitman and his band
chunged dancing from an exercise to
an art alt the glory of the Roman
holiday was gone. Now the juniors,
sophs und seniors purify the air of
the arena In large numbers. Whereas
the opportunity to meet little Freshy
on the campus may be denied, that
"didn't I sew you In Baltimore" attitude arranges matters to the satisfaction of both parties. To the crooning of "nlxe baby" many a college
love affair has heen hutched between
a senior and Krimh at that battle of
the century.

Les Rrown- -Wo ought to get a gondola for the lily-pond.
Hill Masterson: "Let's get a couple
no they can breed."
One of the saddest sights to be
seen during the flrst week of Varsity
is that ot innumerable young Freshmen pusBling over the Calendar. For
the first day or two they are optimistic though worried. Later they
have become wretched. Still later,
they have thrown the calendar aside
and are immersed in the greater
worry of anticipating the initiation.
In fact, a prolonged and agitated interest in the calendar 1b one of the
signs of the Freshman;—the upper
years choose their courses and trust
to luck that their lectures will not
It Is therefore no wonder that there
exists on the campus the superstition that no one has ever understood
the Calendar. This idea Is really erroneous for there was once a student
who did—or rather, said he did,—
but he was abnormal. And little good
his knowledge did him anyway, for
he was Incautious enough to admit
it, and was trampled to death by fellow studtntB seeking information.
This is the true explanation of the
dark stain on the floor of the Men's
Common Room and—but I forgot; it
all happened In Fairview
To return to the calendar;—the
first thing about lt that the Freshie
of this year notices is the phrase:
"The Thirteenth Session."
Is this an omen,? Let us hope not,
for his sake. However, if he is not
very superstitious he takes heart
from the fact that the cover is colored
green in his honor and opens the book
and commences to absorb knowledge.
Ab he proceeds he is probably disappointed because there are no pictures, but. a sense of duty drives him
on. There Is nothing to attract the
attention until page 17 is reached.
There, under the heading "Constitution of the University" is this statement the University shall consist of a Chancellor, Convocation,
Board of Governors, Senate and the'
Faculties." (It is to be hoped that
only a very few Freshies will ask,
"Whose Faculties?"). Here Is the
first point hard to understand. All
tho Frosh and all the Sophs are under the Impression that the University consists of the Sophomore Year
with a sprinkling of Senior and Junior.
Who Is right? The opinion of the
Sophs will remain fixed when they
who have taken English, discover that
the word "graduates" is misspelled at
the foot of the page.
Another bewildering statement is
found on page 24. After voting that
"The (University) site comprises an
area of 548 acres, or which approximately one-half Is campus," the reader sees this,— "In all directions, appear snow-capped mountains, strikingly rugged and Impressive." It. is
heart-breaking to see th6 continuous
pilgrimage of optimists setting forth
from the Arts Building to be "strikingly Impressed" by the "rugged,
snowcapped mountains that appear
In all directions," und returning dejected and hopeless. Can It be that
the Calendar Is wrong? N"ver!! Hut
some prefer to trust their eyesight.
After wading through the next two
pages the Freshie is regaled wtth a
description of the Library. But although this sounds all right, what
does It moan? What Is "Caen stono"?
What are "quoins," "corbels," "roof-
trusses" and "patturao"? Truly there
Is much to learn, thinks the student.
From there on, there are many
pages to be stared at before the Timetable Is reached. The list of scholarships Is enticing and If remembered
serves to stimulate Interest in studies
lor awhile. But everything Is ruined
by    the   Time-table.
At flrst the Freshman thinks it Is
rather good fun to play hide and seek
with himself In an effort to arrange
his course so that he has only one or
two cases of several lectures occurring
at Ihe same time. But tt becomes
tiresome and after a while he grows
desperate and, of course, Anally gives
That Is the beginning of the end.
Muttering "that spoils my day," he
scans ihe "est of the book wllhout
enjoyment, All he reads about the
different courses Is coloured by the
thought. "Will that clash with Kngllsh I?" or "Have I got a lecture at
in (iclock on Wednesday?" This

lh« Time-table and ends In chaos,

Rugby Recruits
Look Promising
English Rugby broke all records,
when at the end of last Wednesday's
practice over a hundred athletes had
been signed up. As there Is a prospect of more to come, we believe this
is a record for any sport or athletic
activity ever held at Varsity, It goes
a long way to show the popularity of
this mode or recreation. There was
hardly room to run on the oval on
Wednesday; and it was worth two
nhlrts and a pair of what-youmey-cell
thems to get Into tbe new dressing
There Is no doubt that many of the
new men are inexperienced, but after
a few weeks of gentle grilling under
the tender hand of "Jawn" Tyrwhltt
and Co., Ltd., and a little more experience in aotual gamea, they wtll
develop Into real players. Many of
these new men are Freshmen and will
be at Varsity in the years to come,
so that a little extra time spent now
in lining the men up will have its results lu the future.
The conclusion of Saturday's games
is no surprise, considering the short
Serlod of time in whlon the men have
ad to get into shape. The score at
half time indicates better the type of
game played than the full time score,
which only shows a lack of condition.
A week or so ot hard work will soon
remedy this. The best factor of Saturday's games is that the coaches
have been given some idea of the calibre of the new men, their style of
play, and the positions for which they
are best suited. Picking three teams
from over a hundred men, and at the
same time wishing to try out new
men at different positions, la no joke.
Bill Locke, one of last year's most
outstanding players, came ln from Alaska Friday. He Is a tower of
'strength, a tackling fool, and a tricky
runner, playing nearly any position,
but showing up best at seven-eighths.
It is rumoured that BUI Locke's old
side-kick, Phil Willis, is also wandering south from B. C.'s hinterland with
a prospector's beard and the usual
rocks. Tiny Noble has deolded to
quit the ice business and may soon
be seen at his accustomed place near
the pie counter in the Cafeteria.
There is an English Rugby meeting
to-day at noon, In Applied Science 100.
Everybody out!
Women's Grass Hockey Club
Starts Early
Women's Grass Hockey is off to a
very early start this year. Two successful practices have already been
held, and a third will take place Immediately. The conditions which have
caused a slump in the popularity of
this sport among the girls ln recent,
years have this year been remedied
lo a great extent. The greatest, drawback has been the lack of a roach.
This year, Mrs. Dovlng, a very efll-
dent coach who hass had unlimited experience In this work, and who is herself a staunch devotee of the sport,
has been secured to coach each Wednesday afternoon at 3.30 at Trimble
Park (corner Etghth Avenue and Trimble Street). Practices will be held at
the playing field on two other days of
the week. The dates of the practices
will be posted on the notice board
early this week.
This year a schedule of games will
be drawn up and posted at the beginning of the season. Games will be arranged between Normal and the
stronger High School teams. There
will very likely be one game a week
for each team. The club intends to
field two teams in a few weeks.
The positions on these teams will
for the most part be filled by Freshettes and new members ot the Club.
The stars of last year turning out for
future laurels are Lois Todd, Jean
Salter at fullback, Beth Pollock at
goal, and Evelyn Cruise and Muriel
Harvie on the forward line. Helen
McOulre, formerly of Kltsllano High
School, Is making a very good showing at the position of centre forward.
Evelyn Hill Is also a promising recruit for the forward line.
A new plan has been adopted regarding membership. Wlwreas, in
other years, this Club has been open
only to those who have already learned lo play, now It Is open also to those
who would like to learn the game.
The coach extends a special Invitation to all beginners, and to all new
members of the Club. All those Interested will please sign the list posted on the notice board In the Arts
Building. A practice will not be held
thia Wednesday on account of initiation, but a large turnout Is expected
on Wednesday, October 12th, at 3.30.    I
OOTOBm 4TH, 19l#=r
The Society of Thoth, Varsity's
ultra-original journalistic society, will
hold a meeting in the near future.
It Is intended to get off to a flying
start ln the year's activities.
The meeting will be of the utmost
Importance to every member of the
club. A new Grand Scribe must be
elected, as the present chief of the
followers of the ibis god has gone
to Cambridge University. Furthermore, the year's programme must be
completely organised, and a decision
reached as to whether Journalism or
"stunts" are to be stressed this season. Several scribes ot Thoth have
left the University and there are several vaoanoies to be filled, The basis
for the introduction of new members
must be determined as soon as possible.
There Is a suggestion afoot that the
Thoth Sooiety will stage another ballet at Home Coming Night. This, however depends entirely upon the support given to tbe Club by Its members, If sufficient enthusiasm is
aroused the Society will proceed to
organise a production that will eclipse
lest year's success.
All loyal Scrlbea of Thoth are requested to scan the "Ubyssey" and
bulletin boards tor notices. Persons
wishing to join the Society will be
given full Information as soon as possible,                	
Musicians Launch
Winter's Programme
Those Interested in music, instrumental or vocal, will be pleased to
learn that the Musical Sooiety will
soon be launched on its winter's programme. Already around the Campus
some have been heard "tuning up" for
the try-outs, and while the attempts
can not be classed as operatic, they
show much promise. With many of
last year's members back at Varsity
and tbe influx of talent among the
new-comers, a very successful year is
To the uninitiated we would explain
that the Society 1b the medium Of expression for all students interested in
music, it consists of two divisions-
orchestral and vocal. Each division
meets in sections at noon hours
throughout the year. Here a study is
made of a varied programme of selections which is presented to the student body and the public at large at
the Annual Spring Concert. So popular have these concerts become, that
last year It was necessary to hold lt
on two nights, and it is expected that
such will be the case again this year.
The executive has again been fortunate in securing the services of Mr.
C. Haydn Williams as conductor. In
order to make an early start on the
year's programme, tryouts are already
being held, and those interested are
asked to sign their names as soon as
possible on one of the lists on the notice boards. Arrangements are being
made to hold the tryouts this year in
private ln the Musical Society room
(Auditorium Building), so no musically Inclined person should hesitate to
sign up for tryouts.
