Varsity Downs Famous Saint
Andrews Eleven in
Thrilling Game.
The Varsity Soccer Club proved
without a doubt on Saturday that it
is a worthy addition to the First Division. Jn its initial game of the season it outplayed St. Andrew's, last
year's champions, netting three goals
to one. From the spectators' standpoint it was one of the finest games
seen on Vancouver grounds for some
years, and showed the University senior team clean fighters, endowed with
lots of pep.
The Play.
Play opened with Varsity pressing
hard, and it was only the sterling defence of the Saints' backs, and the
sensational playing of Delcourt in their
goal, that stood between our forwards
and their net. The ball went up and
down the field, rain making it exceptionally hard to place.
Immediately upon the resumption of
play the Saints took possession of the
ball and pressed hard. After some
minutes a scrimmage occurred in our
goal mouth, and Greig forced the ball
Into the net.
Things looked bad for Varsity, but
five minntes before the final whistle,
after a wonderful display of combination between Cameron and McLeod,
Johnny sent in a hot one that had
Delcourt beaten all the way.
From the kick-off Jock Lundie secured the ball and, forcing his way
through all opposition, again sagged
the rigging, exactly one minute after
resumption of play, putting Varsity
In the lead.
McLeod once more starred when he
secured his second goal. Catching the
leather on a rebound from Borland,
he took the ball through the Saints'
backs and once more beat Delcourt for
our third goal.
The play of every individual on the
Varsity team was outstanding. Mosher made some sensational saves. Rex
Cameron is as tricky as ever. Crute
and Baker at back make a fine team,
while too much cannot be said of the
excellent work of Lundie, Say, McLeod and Jackson.
A Bright Future.
It is safe to say that if Varsity keeps
playing the same brand of football as
they served np Saturday, the First Division Cup will find a resting place in
the Entrance Hall of the Arts Building. By their clean playing, sportsmanship and aggressiveness our representatives have made a name for
themselves of which we may all be
The Teams.
Varsity—Mosher, Crute, Baker, D.
Emery, Say, Buckley, Cameron, McLeod, Lundie, Jackson, J. Emery.
St. Andrews—Delcourt, Borland,
Colvin, Dryborough, McKay, Reid, Forrest, F. Wilson, Shillingford, Greig,
Attendance   at  Lectures of
Vancouver Institute
Helps Campaign.
The Vancouver Institute will hold
a series of public lectures during the
winter season .under the auspices of
the University. Students already worried by the exigencies of time tables
and conflicting courses may think
that this announcement refers to anyone but themselves. On the contrary,
it is for a special reason, worthy of
their attention.
A Link Between Public and University
As all who have interested themselves in the Student Campaign are
aware it is from those who feel in
some way connected with the University that the most active support may
be obtained. The lectures of the Vancouver Institute are the only public
lectures given under the auspices of
the University. As such they form a
special link between the public and
the college at a time when we need
all possible co-operation. Urge your
friends to attend these lectures even
if it is not possible for you, yourself
to spare much time for them. Every
outsider who can in any way be
brought into touch with University
affairs is a political ally. It is only
by seizing every opportunity for
bringing home the Importance of the
University to the average citizen, that
we can hope to obtain the best results
Of Varied Interest
The lectures themselves are of
wide-spread interest, and are sure to
attract large audiences. Other lectures will deal with such varied subjects as "Some Modern Philosophical
Theories," "Reminiscences of Pioneer
Life in B C," "Impressions of Economic Conditions in Central Europe"—
given by Professor H. Y. Angus, who
has just returned from a trip of the
countries of which he will speak;
"Folk Lore" and "Social Relief."

Local Rugby Situation and
Plans for Coming Season
are Outlined.
On Saturday the Vancouver Rugby
season opens. Varsity will be represented by three teams in this first
day's play; the second fifteen playing
the Rowing Club at Brockton Point
in the Miller Cup League, and the
third and freshman teams meeting
Rowing Club second and Commerce
second at Twelfth and Cambie. The
Ubyssey goes to press before the times
of these games are fixed, but announce-
'ments will be made on the notice
Rugby History.
And what lies behind this? The
end of the war brought renewed interest in athletics. The revival of the
Vancouver Rugby Union in the autumn of 1919 found Varsity in the field
with a team which carried off the Mjl-
ler Cup, though defeated by Stanford.
Another year's training and rapidly
growing enthusiasm enabled us to retain the city championship and culminated in the memorable victory over
Stanford on Xmas Day, 1920. The intermediate team ran second for the
Province Cup. Since then Varsity
Rugby has gone steadily forward. Last
season the first fifteen stepped up into the McKechnie series, the intermediate team taking their places in
the city league, while a third team
was entered for the Province Cup.
The McKechnie players carried off the
cup, being undefeated in competition
with Vancouver and Victoria, though
the game with the latter was only won
in the last five minutes after an epic
struggle. Xmas Day saw another victory over Stanford. The Miller Cup
team, though they gained no victories,
by their hard work fed and supported
the first fifteen and fully justified their
own inclusion in the city league. The
third team ran a good second among
the intermediates.

Student Leaders   Address Big
Mass Meeting on
A mass meeting was held in the
Assembly Hall, Monday noon, for the
purpose of presenting a report of the
summer's activities of the student
committee, in charge of the University Extension work, and to outline
the plans for the winter campaign.
Mr. Richards, president of the Alma
Mater Society, in the course of his
address spoke of the various ways in
which the individual student had assisted in the publicity campaign, and
emphasized the importance of the petition work.; ; ,
More Signatures Needed.
The signatures of men in every occupation, of British Columbia's most
prominent and influential business
men, have been added" to the lists.
Consider the value and importance of
the petition! Already seventeen thousand signatures have been secured,
but our aim is to double that number.
The petition not only states our desires and hopes, but It represents also
the views of the electors; it will prove
to the Government that the people
support us, when we say that higher
education is not a luxury, but a necessity, and that the University must
cease to be the political plaything that
it has been in the past.
Popular Support Secured.
Miss Marjorie Agnew spoke of the
splendid support given by the prominent organizations throughout the
province. The Kiwanis, Parent-Teachers, Rotary, Women's Club of Canada,
McGill Association and many others
have agreed to spare no efforts in securing a University which will be a

The value of intercollegiate debating has long been recognized; as a
form of University activity it is becoming more and more important to
us. With an ever growing demand
for public speakers too much attention cannot be given to intercollegiate
Season's Debates
This year our University will undertake two debates- The annual event
with the University of Washington
will take place in the spring. In
connection with the other debate, our
debate manager is trying to conclude
final arrangements with the University of California. It is proposed that
the University of California send a
team up here this year, while U. B. C.
will undertake to send a team to California next year.
A Good Record
In previous years Varsity debaters
have been able to hold their own
very well, and out of the sixteen &&•
bates participated in, they have been
successful in seven. All men in the
University aspiring to places on the
intercollegiate debating teams are requested to get in touch with Walter
Hodgson, Arts '24, as soon as possible. Tryouts will be held during
the next week or so and notices will
be posted giving full particulars.
Members of the freshman year, as
well as others, are assured that in the
selection of teams no preference is
given on account of age, academic
year or faculty. Further, all travelling expenses are paid by the University. As an acknowledgment of the
services of the debaters a silver debating pin is awarded for representing the University one year. For two
years of service a gold pin is granted.
An Opportunity
Further opportunity in public speaking is offered by the recent announcement of the Students' Campaign Committee, that they will need the services of a dozen or so speakers in the
forthcoming activities of the campaign. Here is a good chance for the
men who can speak in public to turn
out and support their Alma Mater, and
aid materially in the campaign which
is to be launched.
Announcement is made by C. W.
Hodgson, Debates' Manager, of the
"Intercollegiate Debate Try-outs will
be held in Room 23, Monday, October
9th, 1922, at 3 p.m. All contestants
are required to prepare a flve-minute
address on the question (either Affirmative or Negative): "Resolved that
the attitude of the British Government is justifiable in connection with
the Dardanelles and Bosphorus."
Arts '25, the Sophomore class, held
its elections last week. Those fortunate to achieve executive positions
in this live young class are: President, R. L. McLeod; Vice-President,
Grace Smith; Secretary, Florence McLeod; Treasurer, Coleman Martin;
Marshall, Jack Shore; Men's Athletic
Representative, Jack Ledingham;
Men's Literary Representative, Wilfred Kelly; Women's Athletic Representative, Doris Shorney; Women's
Literary Representative, Helen McGill ;  Reporter, Kenneth Schell.
Prof. F. G. C. Wood was re-elected
Hon. President.
No further business was brought up
at this meeting.
About seventy-five Freshettes, the
out-of-town members of the Freshman
year, enjoyed meeting each other for
the first time last Saturday at the
home of Mrs. L. S. Klinck. The occasion was an informal reception and
supper given by the Women's Undergraduate Society, with the object of
making the out-of-town Freshettes feel
at home as soon as possible.
Everyone enjoyed a jolly good time,
the result of supper, charades, and
spirited college songs. Those of the
upper years assisting were: Miss
Annie Anderson, President W. U. S.;
Miss Beth McLennan, Miss Beatrice
Johnson, Miss Grace Smith, Miss Rena
McRae, Miss Madge Portsmouth, Miss
Jessie Casselman, Miss Mollie Wilcox.
The Women's Initiation will take
place Friday, October 6, at 7 p.m.
Freshettes are asked to arrive on
time; penalty for unpunctuality has
not been disclosed, but "soonest over
soonest mended," you know, (or something like that).
Further instructions to the ignorant young are: Costume: bloomers
and middy; State of Preparedness:
five cents and five coppers, large
handkerchief;  State of Mind: good.
What will follow will have to leave
some fragments, because a tempting
menu of these same orts (see Eng. 1)
has already been posted. So, on with
the play, and make way for the Sophomore!
All women students are invited to
a reception and tea for the women of
the Freshman class on Saturday, October 7th, from four to six, in the auditorium.
There will be dancing and excellent refreshments — the best known
method of comforting the Freshette
after her harrowing experiences of the
night before.
An innovation in the plans for the
Freshman Reception has been announced by the Students' Council,
whereby the unhappy crowding which
has been the chief feature of previous
receptions will be avoided.
The guests at the coming function
will consist of the new students of the
University only, together with the
Faculty, the Students' Council, and the
various executives.
Extreme good sense has been shown
in such a decision; for the Freshman
Reception is, after all, for Freshmen,
and they do not (probably), appreciate
being stifled any more than anyone

With a largely increased membership, the Boxing Club is already in
full swing. The members met for the
first time this term on Tuesday and
had a useful work-out. So far the
Boxing Club has not come much into
prominence. However the support
given the tournament held in the
spring, at a period when both time
and money were scarce, was most encouraging. Both in the east of Canada and in England amateur boxing
occupies a higher position than it does
at present here. The Boxing Club is
anxious to change this, both by competition in college and by meeting
teams from outside. As a first step
in this latter direction, arrangements
are in process of being made for a
meeting with Victoria College. In the
matter of coaching the executive have
two men in mind, but no definite answer has yet been obtained.
Lipsey, Sc. '24, is president; Louden,
Sc. '26, vice-president; and Hanna, Sc.
'23, secretary. If you are interested
then get in touch with any of
these, or just come up to the St.
George's Church gym., corner Fourteenth and Laurel, tonight at 7.30
p.m. Freshmen particularly are wanted, as they should be able to maintain their membership of the club
longer than others.
Out at McBride Park, last Saturday,
Varsity's Third Division soccer team
played a see-saw game with the Fraser Valley eleven, losing out by
one goal to nil. The defence of the
Varsity team was excellent, and when
the forwards learn to combine and
shoot, Varsity will have another winning team to support. During the
game "Hee" Cant, our hard working
manager, had the great misfortune to
sustain a broken nose.
If Saturday's games are a sign of
future success, we have two real hustling teams to support. The teams are
doing their part; it is up to the University at large to show her spirit by
supporting them.
(Continued from Page 1)
This Year's Policy.
This season the policy of expansion
is being continued and a freshman
team is being entered for the Province
Cup. This team has been formed to
uncover all available Rugby talent by
bringing into the game from the start
players who might otherwise take it
up too late to be of full value. A
Scottish international player has consented to assist in the greatly increased work of coaching consequent
upon having so many teams in the
Our Present Prospects
This brief record of Varsity Rugby
history since the end of the war may
serve to indicate the steady progress
of the sport in our College. We are
proud of this record and can best
show our pride by helping to maintain-
and advance the high standard already
attained. This was not lightly won,
and its achievement has depended in
the past, as it will in the future, upon
the energy and enthusiasm of players
and organizers, both on the field and
in preparation, backed by the loyal
support of the whole University. Interest in Rugby is spreading rapidly.
Edmonton is sending a team here at
the beginning of November. Correspondence is being carried on with
universities in the south with a view
to a possible visit of a U. B. C. team
to California. Another team, Cowichan, has entered the McKechnie
race. Commerce second have taken
the place of Centrals second in the
Intermediate League. The standard
of play is rising everywhere and competition is becoming keener.
Active Support Necessary
Graduation has not caused a great
number of vacancies in the senior
teams, and most of the players are
returning. There is every prospect of
a great year for Varsity Rugby, but
remember first, last, and all the time
that the efforts of the players are enormously assisted by the active presence of Varsity men and women at
their matches. This has all been said
before, but we make no apology for
the repetition. The same principles
apply to all Varsity sports, and are no
less important in any particular one.
It should be the aim of all of us to
find an active place in at least one
large sphere of Varsity activity, but
if active participation is denied us, at
least we may help and encourage
(Continued from Page 1)
Further announcements of dates
and speakers will be made in the
Ubyssey numbers once the matter
has been decided upon. The Insti
tute meets every Thursday evening
at 8:15 in the Physics lecture room.
Space does not permit the insertion
of the entire programme but announcements of coming lectures will be
made every week In the Ubyssey. At
the opening meeting, October fifth,
there will be an address by Dr. J..G.
Davidson on "Science, Theology and
Christianity." This lecture will be of
great value to students, as it will
trace and explain the conflicts among
the three subjects. The second lecture, given by Principal Vance on
"The Influence of Machinery on the
Worker," will be of use to students
in History and Economics.
At a meeting of the Soccer Club last
Tuesday noon in the Physics lecture
room, Lorimer Baker was elected captain of the senior team. Doctor J. G.
Davidson—who has taken a very active interest in the Club—was elected
honorary president, while Stroyon
elected secretary-treasurer.
The Second Team this year will be
captained by Phillips, with "Hee" Cant
in the position of vice-captain.

"Tom Birch is as brisk as a bee in
conversation, but when he takes a pen
in his hand it acts as a torpedo and
benumbs all his faculties." Samuel
Johnson wrote this sentence about an
historian of the eighteenth century
whose prosy writings were in great
contrast to his style of conversation.
We wonder what the venerable doctor
would think if he knew the students
of this institution. He would decide,
we are sure, that brisk conversation
was their most prominent characteristic. A tour of our halls would convince him—clamouring crowds in front
of the notice-boards, an excited babble of voices at the portals of that
sanctuary, the Reading Room, and absolute uproar in the common room.
Yet would he, after all, apply the
word "brisk" to the fragments of conversation that would reach him? Or
would he scornfully term them mere
idle buzzings? Without doubt he'd
consider that the faculties of these
terribly talkative people, too, would be
benumbed when they came to express
themselves on paper. If he paid us
a Xmas visit, he'd have proof positive
—wouldn't he? And doubtless he
would wonder how the professors in
this modern Tower of Babel manage
to make themselves heard. We wonder, too.
Now to get down to brass tacks.
We hereby appeal to all those who
have grievances against this institution, to the flippant, flirtatious flapper, and the lad with the line, NOT
to air their grievances or conduct
their philanderings within hearing of
the lecture rooms. And we recommend those whose feet, like Clementine's, are number nine, to wear Cat's
Paw rubber heels and step lightly.
There is not usually found in any
society a popular desire to fill post
tions of responsibility. University activities are no exception to this rule.
Few are willing to take upon themselves the irksome positions of secretary or treasurer or any other execu
tive offices, and they exercise all theii
•| skill in dodging responsibility. Consequently the work falls upon the
shoulders of a small number, who often have to do more than their share
in half a dozen different activities.
As a rule, they do not complain, until
one of the indolent people begins to
employ his abundant leisure in proclaiming that some particular society
is "run by a clique."    That hurts.
This point has often been brought
up before; but it cannot be too strongly impressed upon newly-arrived students that they are welcome to share
both privileges and responsibilities.
But if you are unable or unwilling to
do executive work, deal fairly with
those who are doing that work. They
have no objection to friendly criticism, but they resent the insinuations
that are too often made by those who
have no executive record to criticise.
The Literary and Scientific Department is an executive body, and is the
only recognized medium between the
Students' Council and the constituent
societies of the department, which include in their scope: The Debating
Societies, the Players' Club, the French
Dramatic Club, the Musical Society,
the Aggie Discussion Club, the Engineering Discussion Club, and the
Chemistry Society. The object of the
department is to throw its influence
wholeheartedly into the arousing of
student interest in literature, art, music, drama, public speaking, debating,
science, and all forms of intellectual
life. Furthermore it is the aim of the
department to bring public speakers to
address the student body, and to promote college spirit.
The Students' Part.
There is no need to impress upon
the student body the necessity of attending the major activities of this
department. It is the duty of all students to attend international debates,
the performances of the Players' Club
and the concerts of the Musical Society. Besides supporting these major
functions, the student is asked to get
into connection with some one of these
/arious societies of the department,
fivery undergraduate is a member of
:he Literary and Scientific Department
a.nd ought to become an active member of at least one recognized society.
Announcement is made by the Arts
Mens Undergraduate Society and the
Womens Undergraduate Society, that
there will be put into operation a
students book exchange. The project
will be carried on in the same manner as last years exchange. The books
handled are all used books and the
students have the privilege of turning in used ones or of procuring second-hand books for their courses. The
Book Exchange this year is to be
housed in the Literary and Scientific
Dept. office in the Commercial Bldg.
Hours of operation will be from 11:30
to 1:30 and the exchange will run till
October 11th. It will be entirely
operated by students. The books will
be valued by an evaluating committee;
the price of a book to be determined
by its condition. It is further announced that students handing in
hooks must make out duplicate lists
and have their names in each book.
Payment on books sent in will be
made after October 11th, and unsold
books will be returned after that date.
If it works as it ought to, a good
many students will be saved money,
and a good many will acquire it when
they had least thought to!
Reporters' Meeting
Friday, 3 p.m.
Publications Office
The personnel of the Faculty has
suffered no important changes this
year; but there is a large number of
promotions to be noted, and several
new appointments, particularly among
our own recent graduates. The practice of appointing a University's own
graduates as assistants in the various
departments has before now aroused
criticism; the results on the other
hand have been satisfactory, provided
only that such appointments be temporary. It is an excellent thing, and
in the case of British Columbia, an
expedient thing, to offer one's own
graduates a year or so of post-graduate work, preparatory in most cases
to a continuation of such work in
other Universities. It will be noticed
that the graduate appointments which
follow are for the session 1922-23.
The meeting of the Board of Governors on Monday night confirmed the
following report:
The resignation of Mr. L. W. Gill,
Professor and Head of the Department of Mechanical Engineering was
accepted, effective as at September
30, 1922.
Capt. B. S. Hartley, M.A. (Cambridge), R.N. (retired) appointed as
Assistant in Mathematics for the session.
Miss Mae Barclay, M.A. (Brit. Col.)
appointed as Assistant in Mathematics
for the session.
Mr. Maurice Home, appointed as

Editor  "Ubyssey,"
Dear Sir,—I believe that I voice the
sentiments at a. large majority of the
students of the University wben I venture to protest, through your paper,
against the high prices charged by the
Book Store. My conception of a University Book Store is not one where the
student must pay through the nose for
every book he buys. Surely he has
enough financial burdens without that.
The store should be conducted more for
the benefit of the student, and prices
should be lower—and never higher—
than those obtaining in the down-town
stores, for those in charge are not making their living thereby. Unfortunately
we have no way of ascertaining the
profit on these bosks, but we are led to
believe that It is too high. For instance
the Book Store charges $1.50 for Clay's
Economics, when a business college in
the city sells it for $1.25 and still makes
its  usual profit.
Now when officials of the Book Exchange enquired at the Book Store, the
retail prices of certain books, the management refused to give any information. Surely this is showing a spirit
which can not be condoned. Perhaps the
Book Store may lose a small part of
Its business through the activities of
the Book Exchange, but this is relatively unimportant when one considers that
the Book Store is always sold out of
several lines before all of the students
have been supplied.
Yours truly,
Arts  '25.

bespeak an interest which strives to
express itself in a material work. Miss
Agnew, in closing, made an earnest
appeal to the women students present
for continued effort and industry in
the work of the petition.
Mr. Harry Cassidy explained the importance of publicity through the
press, and expressed his appreciation
of the aid furnished by Mr. Aubrey
Roberts, of the Province. The newspaper department, backed by the editors, is proving itself a great factor
in the publicity scheme.
Campaign Plans.
Mr. Jack Grant outlined the plans
for the winter campaign. He proposed to have a Varsity week, a leading
feature of which is to be a pilgrimage
of the entire student body to Point
Grey. He laid stress on the urgent
need of speakers and funds, which requires the co-operation of the student
Cup Presented.
Mr. Douglas Rae, President of Men's
Athletics, then called on Mr. Hartsell,
President of Vancouver and District
Football Association. Mr. Hartsell
commented favorably on the showing
of the Varsity soccer team, especially
the sportsmanlike attitude displayed
last Saturday, when they won a decisive victory over St. Andrew's. He
then presented the 'Iroquois Cup to
Mr. Wolverton, who in turn gave it
over to the University for safe keeping. Mr. Wolverton then gave a short
history of the Football Club, its success, and rapid rise to the First Division in the last three years.

Press Bureau Is New  Project
As a part of the plan of publicity to
be carried on by the students during
the campaign in favour of the removal
of the University to Point Grey, it has
been decided to organize a Varsity
Press Bureau to send out despatches
at regular intervals to all kinds of publications in the province. Mr A. F
Roberts, formerly of Arts '23 and now
on the staff of the Daily Province will
be the director of the Press Bureau
and will be assisted by a committee to
consist of Mr. H. M. Cassidy and Mr.
Don Mclntyre. Mr. Mclntyre will be
in charge of the staff of students who
will carry on the routine work in an
office to be established within the college buildings.
Object of Bureau
It is planned to put the University
question before the readers of every
publication in the province that will
print the news despatches. A circular
letter is being sent out immediately
to the various editors explaining the
project and asking their support and
with this will go an article which they
will be asked to print in their papers
to explain the Student Campaign to
their readers.
Genuine Propaganda
Then, each week, to the weekly
papers will be sent a news-letter containing the latest news of the progress of the campaign, information of
general interest concerning doings at
the college, data as to the need for
better accommodation, as to crowded
conditions, curtailment of courses, the
cost of properly establishing the University, and so on. Also there will be
sent information which may form the
basis for editorials, such as data showing the value of higher education, the
need for more college-trained men and
women in British Columbia, the relative expenditure on their Universities
of other province in Canada and of
various states in the United States.
Periodicals will receive special articles calculated to appeal to their particular classes of readers and the dailies in all the cities will be supplied
with copy by special correspondents.
It is hoped by this means to keep
before the readers of the press of the
province the University question for
a period of possibly several months or
longer, if necessary. The press publicity plan is one of the very important
features of the campaign of education
and information that the students are
carrying out this year and will undoubtedly do a great deal to move public opinion to the point desired by the
student body.

Introducing The Players' Club
One of the oldest and best known
societies of ^he , University is the
Players' Club. The Club consists of
sixty members only and as membership in it is a thing greatly to be
desired, every year there are a great
many applicants for the vacancies
which have occurred since the last
session. This year 125 would-be
members have signed up for the
Players' Club Try Outs to be held
Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons
of next week. The order in which
these tryouts will be held will be
posted up on the bulletin board very
shortly. Out of this number only
enough will be chosen to bring the
membership up to the required sixty.
The programme for the Xmas plays
has not yet been determined, but
some very interesting plays are being
considered and there is no doubt that
the performance will be as enjoyable
as it has always been in the past.
Two years ago the Players' Club
offered a fifty dollar prize to the
student submitting an original play
which should be found suitable for
presentation at the Christmas performance. This year six plays have
been submitted. They are still being
considered by the iBoard of Judges,
which consists of the Faculty members of the Advisory Board of the
Players Club. If one of the entries is
accepted it will be the first time that
the prize has been won since it was
offered two years ago.
It is an undoubted fact that the
Players Club is one of the best mediums of advertising the existence of
our University to the public. By its
annual spring performance and more
especially by its spring tour of the
province it brings the University very
favorably to the notice of a great
many people.
Literary Corner
Anniversaries are in order; and as
we all know, the Orpheum is never behind the fashions. So we behold the
Orpheum Theatre Manager, Mr. Hart-
ing, making preparations for a
"Third-of-a-Century" anniversary week,
beginning October 23.
Various clubs and organizations in
town, such as the Kiwanis, Rotary,
and Gyro will put on "acts." Mr. Hart-
ing is anxious that the University
should stage something,—U. B. C. talent being well-known. It will be a
featured part of the entertainment on
one night during the anniversary week.

Initiation is to be entirely different
this year. No poor quivering Freshmen with faces ashen hued beneath
tar or cement, heads tonsured, and
ankles twisted, will be shewn their
weary way home. No fainting Freshettes, crimson-cheeked, and streaky
haired, savouring of the back alleys of
Constantinople, will be carried out on
stretchers. Oh, no, nothing of that
sort! This year's Sophs are far too
humane to allow such barbarity.
Freshies to  Initiate  Sophs.
It is rumoured among Freshmen circles that initiation may be quite a surprise to the Sophomores, this year. In
fact there is to be a departure from
the general rule of Sophs initiating
Freshies. Strange things do happen.
There are many more Freshmen than
ever before, and they might screw up
sufficient courage to turn the tables.
"Rats!" the Sophs exclaim (they have
made such lovely plans), but rats have
been known to behave most unexpectedly on occasion.
Freshies Nice Little Things.
"Of course the Freshies have no intention of turning the tables against
the Sophs. That would be unkind, and
after all Freshies are rather nice little creatures who would not wish to
hurt the feelings of anyone, not even
of the lordly Sophs!
Editor's Note.—The preceding article, submitted by a Freshette, is an
excellent example of that irrepressi-
bility which characterizes those whom
the menace of Initiation "finds, and
shall find, unafraid."
Monday night's meeting of the Students' Council was productive of a considerable amount of discussion regarding several more or less controversial
matters and did riot come to' an end
until a late hour. Mr. C..Findlay, Sc.
'23, took his seat on the council for the
first time, following his election by
acclamation as president of the
Science Undergraduate Society. The
resignation of Mr. C. Arnott from that
position was accepted.
One of the important matters decided upon was that sweaters of a distinguishing nature be purchased for
the class marshals. It was pointed out
by Mr. Richards and by other members
of the council that this would involve
a certain expense which might not be
warranted on account of all available
funds going to the Student Campaign
effort. A compromise was reached by
which the marshals would be given the
opportunity of buying a sweater outright at two-thirds of its cost value,
or of having the use >of a sweater for
the year and then turning it in, provided they deposited one half of its
Plans for the Freshman reception
were read and a committee appointed,
of which Miss Dorothy Walsh is to be
convenor. The decision to limit invitations to others than new students in
all years to members of Faculty, of the
Students' Council and of the senior
members of their executives was arrived at with regret, but was considered necessary because of the physical
impossibility of accommodating all the
students in the auditorium.
Before the close of the meeting the
important matter of choosing a vice-
president for the Council was taken
up and Miss Annie M. Anderson,
President of the Women's Undergraduate Society, was unanimously elected.
After considering some minor matters of business, allotting dates for
certain functions and discussing
briefly the policy of the council, the
meeting adjourned.

The University of California is undertaking an ambitious dramatic program for the coming season. The
little Theatre repertory will be made
up of the following plays: "Miss
Lulu Bett," by Zona Gale; "Heartbreak
House," by G. B. Shaw; "The Truth
About Bladys," by A. A. Milne;
"School for Scandal," by Richard
Sheridan; "Enter Madam," by Gilda
Varesi, and "S. S. Tenacity," by
.Charles Vildrae. The prominent parts
in these plays, however, will be taken
by professional actors, and the whole
will be under the direction of Samuel
J. Hume, whose reputation for settings
and production is well-known.
The University of California has
opened a competition for the positions
on its new special staff. It is to be
a staff of women, and the aspirant is
asked to write a criticism of a modern book, using her own judgment in
regard to length, treatment, and
choice. The decision will be based
on these criticisms.
An editorial in the "Daily Californ-
ian"—(by the way, our exclusive attention to California this week is explained by the fact that it is the only
exchange we have received so far)—
contains this: "People in the East

New Conductor is Sought.
The opening meeting of the U. B. C.
Musical Society will be held in the
Auditorium on Thursday noon. At
this preliminary meeting a tentative
toll of all members for the present
cession will be drawn up and a very
special invitation is extended to all
new-comers to the University, interested in music, to be present at the
opening. Especially welcome will be
all those who have taken part in
choral work, either in high schools
or in churches, previous to their
entrance to the U. B. C.
The executive are engaged in securing the services of a suitable conductor for the session and will probably have a report to make at the
meeting. Plans for a "hike" for
October 14th will also be discussed.
Some twenty-ilve students interested
in college journalism met in Room Y

be present, but in his absence the Senior Editor, Mr. A. G. Bruun, suggested some of the things essential to
good news writing. Mr. Al Drennan,
Chief Reporter, stated that six reporters were wanted. In order to find out
who were best qualified to fill these
positions, applicants were required to
write upon one of the following topics: :—
Reporter's Meeting, 150 words.
Mass Meeting, Monday, 150 words.
Rugby Practice, Saturday Morning,
250 words.
An Interview with Mr. H. M. Cassidy regarding the Council Meeting,
200 words.
A Nose for News Test, 100 to 300
The best write-ups on the above
topics are published in this edition of
The Ubyssey, and their respective
authors will be assigned permanent
positions on the reportorial staff.
At least three of these people will
be given the responsibility of reporting University activities to the downtown papers. It is hoped that, by
making the reporters for the city papers directly responsible to the Publications Board, many of the inaccuracies, so common before, may be
Well, say, you only sit and loaf
When you might click and hum,
And help me out in places where
Ideas do not come.
But I would pardon that in you,
Nor on your failings dwell,
When words were rolling thick  and
large, .
If you could only SPELL.
Reporters' Contest Brings
Good Results.
The Editorial Committee appointed
to judge the articles submitted for the
Reporters' Competition, expresses itself as highly gratified at the excellent level maintained by the contestants. In fact the work was in most
cases of such equal merit that it was
impossible to select any six competitors as unquestionably superior. In
consequence three names only have
been added- to the reporting staff of
the "Ubyssey"—the vacancies which
remain will be filled later on, when
the Editorial Board has had further
opportunity of judging the ability of
the remaining applicants.
This Club is formed to encourage
public speaking—and to distribute the
practical knowledge gained by members during their summer work.
Membership is open to Science men
—and those in Arts who intend going
over to Science. A three-quarter majority vote is required for election to

Remember last year's Alumni dance?
We're having this year's on November 3rd, afid those in the know say it
will be some dance. Invitations will
be out soon.
The object of the Society is to promote and encourage interest in topics
of a scientific nature throughout the
student body. The programme for
the college year is to have a few of
our professors address the Society,
and possibly a few outside technical
men. Student members are also
urged to prepare papers and read
them before the Society.
There are no fees and any student
in U. B. C. can become a member.
Aside from the bill which is shown
in this week's issue of the Ubyssey,
Manager Harting calls attention to
the show which will be on the boards
next week at the Orpheum when Victor Moore and Emma Littlefield will
appear in the most laughable act of
the season. It is entitled "Change
Your Act or Back to the Woods," and
should prove a great delight to University patrons of the theatre. Aside from
this headline attraction there is still
another in the offering of Greta Ar-
dine, "The French Model" and popular
dancer. Miss Ardine will be pleasantly remembered in the former act of
Bradley and Ardine. Belle Montrose
will offer an entertaining skit in an
act that depicts a stage struck girl.
Alice and Mary McCarthy will be seen
as "Two Little Girls in Blue," in a
singing and dancing specialty. Claudia Coleman will offer some clever impersonations. Aside from the acts
mentioned above the Channing Trio
will present an aerial act that will be
highly appreciated by the "Gym" fans
of the University. Altogether a varied
bill will be the Orpheum's offering beginning next Monday, October 9.
At noon, tomorrow (Friday), another
Mass Meeting, in conjunction with the
Freshman meeting, will be held n the
The speakers will give further information and details about the Student Campaign, the coming Varsity
Week, and the Great Pilgrimage.
