Mainland Cup Team Puts
A Two to One Score
On Saturday
In one of the most strenuous games
seen on local soccer fields this season, Varsity downed St. Andrews at
the Athletic Park last Saturday, 2-1,
and thereby entered the final round of
the Mainland Cup. The game was replete with thrills from whistle to
whistle. Chances to score were passed up by both teams, while the rival
goalies gave exhibitions that kept the
stands in a continual uproar of applause.
Overtime  Play.
Ninety minutes of play found the
teams tied, 1-1, and St. Andrews pressing. It was not until the second half
of the overtime period that Jock Lundie beat Delcourt for Varsity's second
tally and put the game "on ice" for
the  Blue  and  Gold.
The Game.
Varsity won the toss and elected to
play with the sun at their backs.
Prom the kick-off St. Andrews pressed. The Collegians were unable to
find their feet upon the muddy ground
and conceded at least three corners
before they got under way. Prom
then on play went from end to end of
the field with the Saints having some-

Spring Play Tickets Will Be On
Sale February 23rd.
A splendid play, an excellent caste,

these will be the offerings of the Player's Club on March 12 and 13.
The play is "You Never Can Tell,"
as you already know—I need not
dwell on the excellencies and merits
in the caste—those you also know.
The theatre is to be the Orpheum
and you all are acquainted with its
great superiority over the poor Avenue.
But the gladdest of glad-tidings

First There's a
Regatta Then a
The Dansant
The Rowing Club of U. B. C. holds
its first Annual Regatta on Saturday,
February 17th, at 1 p.m. The number
of events has necessitated an early
start and the lapstroke fours will
lead off. Seven classes are competing
and a good crowd of spectators is expected. The Varsity Eight will turn
out for a short row, to be followed by
the Inter-class local boat races, the
boats to have Lady Cox'ns. Some of
us are looking forward to some real
comedy in this event.
The Inter-class sculling eliminations
were scheduled for yesterday, Wednesday, and the finals will be rowed on
Saturday. The last Rowing event
will be a spectacular race between the
Varsity Senior and Junior fours over
a % mile course. A committee of
judges from the Vancouver Rowing
Club has been arranged for so that
each race will receive competent decision.
A the dansant in the Vancouver
Rowing Club Gymnasium will wind up
the Regatta. The managing of this
affair having been kindly undertaken
by several most capable young Varsity ladies, we feel perfectly confident
that it will be a huge success. Anyone attending the football match will
be welcome to the Club afterwards,
the only condition being that of a
25 cent fee.
Old Clothes and Rube Band Will
Rouse Pep For Vancouver—
Varsity Game
We beg to call attention to an error
which appeared in last week's issue.
The subject of the Institute lecture on
Thursday, Feb. 15, will be "David
Thompson;"  the  lecturer,  Prof.  Sage.
Stevedores, plumbers, hoboes, scrub-
ladies,   washwomen,   rag-pickers,   bo-
i hunks and bums, in fact the very elite
of society will lend dignity and diversity to University halls on February
23rd in Varsity's first annual "Rough
Day," that is, if plans of the Rugby
Club are approved by the Council.
Erstwhile students will be required
; to doff gowns and other semblances of
; respectability and will blossom in
old clothes. (Professors will come
dressed as usual). This will give the
affect of uniformity. Anyone who fails
to look tough enough to satisfy the
committee will be dealt with accordingly and his or her appearance will
; be modified to bring it into conform-
ity with the regulated standard. Oh,
yes, this includes the ladies too!
During the noon hour Lome Morgan
will mount the soap-box in the auditorium and call upon all loyal "Proletarians" to support the big Varsity
vs. Vancouver Rugby game at the
Point on Saturday, February 24th.
The Science Rube Band will parade
the streets on Saturday morning and
the villagers will be awakened to the

Hockey Game Between U. B. C. and University of Washington
To Be Followed By Masquerade—Tickets On
Sale By Class Marshals
Tuesday, February 20th, will be the
occasion of one of the biggest ice
carnivals staged in Vancouver for
many moons. The affair is being arranged under the combined auspices
of the University and the Connaught
Skating Club, and many and various
novelties appear on the programme
for the evening. These include figure
skating, barrel jumping and numerous
novelty stunts. A hockey game will
also be added to the evenings entertainment when U. B. C. goes up
against the U. of Washington. After
the game, which is scheduled to start
at 7:45, the Ice Carnival will take
place. Everyone attending is asked
to come in some kind of a fancy costume and various prizes are to be
awarded for best costumes. A band
will be in attendance and the session
will continue till 11:30. A good crowd
of Varsity students is expected out
to make the carnival a success, and a
good time is assured-for all those who
come. Tickets will be on sale by class
marshals; also there will be a general sale of tickets in the main hall
of the Arts Bldg. on Friday.

Dear  Daisy:— j

U.B.C. cleans up University of
Wa&hington  in  Hockey Fixture
Varsity's aggregation of puck-chasers jaunted over to Seattle last Friday
evening and walloped the University
of Washington in an exhibition intercollegiate hockey fixture by the score
of 4—1. The XI. of Washington team,
better known as the "Huskies," played a good brand of hockey, but could
not cope with U. B. C.'s stellar combination and hard back-checking. This
game is the first of a two-game series;
the second game of the series will be
played on February 20th as a special
attraction of the skating carnival
which is being held under the combined auspices of the TJ. B. C. and the
Connaught  Skating  Club.
Varsity in Good Form.
The game opened with Varsity on
the offensive, and the play was continually forced into the Huskies' territory. TJ. B. C. had a decided edge on
the play and by playing a brilliant
combination game were a source of
worry to the hard working Washington defence. Pete Demidoff, who played a bang-up game throughout, scored Varsity's first goal from a wing-
shot, which the Husky net-minder
could not locate. A little later McCutcheon got through and scored on a
pass from Demidoff.
Second  Period.
The second period was featured by
Washington's  strong  come-back,  and
they tried desperately to draw up to
the Blue and Gold. However their efforts were in vain, and Lipsey and
Colton, both of whom turned in good
performances, broke up all the serious
attempts of the opposing forwards to
get in close. Stoodly also was going
strong and successfully cleared the
fast and frequent shots of Don .McKenzie, the brilliant sharpshooter of
the Husky forwards.
Play   Even.
The third period was anybody's period right to the last, with Varsity
perhaps getting the better of the
breaks. Early in the period Demidoff
broke through and sagged the netting
for his second counter. Washington
came hack strong and were successful
in getting the puck past Stoodly
through the work of McKenzie. Jimmy McCutcheon manipulated Varsity's
last goal close to time, and U. B. C.
skated from the ice on the long end
of a 4—1 score.
The   Team.
Every man on the team was in form
and played good hockey. George Lipsey, on the defence, was especially
strong and put up a good defensive
game, while McPherson, McCutcheon
and Demidoff worked hard both in
back-checking and in offensive play.

j It is a safe assumption that the

■ a course which covers limited ground
j and is definitely specified, for which
j the  textbook  is  small  and  adequate,
and for which comprehensive notes

As  long  as   the  present  system  of
i examinations   is   in   vogue,   "cramma-
■ bility" will remain the criterion by
; which students classify their studies.
Those courses in which the subject
matter cannot be presented in explicit and integrated form, or in
which the work of reducing it to
"crammable" form is left to the student, must continue to enjoy the reputation of being arduous and uncertain
roads to unitary credits.
There are about two more months
of term; the work which is done in
these two months is the deciding factor in the spring examinations; and
at the present time the Junior and
Senior, realizing that this work must
be done, are looking around for a
place in which to do it.
It is unnecessary to point to the
Inadequacy of the Reading Room under ordinary conditions; and old
hands know how the attendance numbers jump to unrecognizable proportions as examinations approach. The
Stackroom, on the other hand, has a
permanent patronage; and the only
hope for the Junior and Senior lies in
utilizing the Stackroom to the utmost.
At the present time the regulations
provide for one person only at a
table. There are a number of extra
chairs in the stacks, but when a student enters with an armful of books
and an essay in the back of his mind,
a solitary chair offers little consolation for the absence of a table—one
cannot do one's best work on one's
We suggest to the Librarian that
the Stackroom regulations be amended (there are only eight more weeks)
to admit of two students working at
the same table. This will double the
capacity of the Stacks; and, so, immeasurably increase its utility to hard-
worked Seniors, in that they can be
reasonably sure of an adequate place
to study on any given day.
We realize that conditions will not
even then be ideal; doubtless crowding should always be avoided in a
scholastic atmosphere. But the case
appears to us sufficiently serious to
warrant immediate active measures,
and accordingly we offer our solution.
In spite of the difference in individual tastes and abilities it is not a
difficult matter to discover the general "rating," as decided by student
opinion, of any course offered in the
curriculum. Certain courses, as chemistry I, have long enjoyed the reputation of being obscure, technical and
laborious. Others, which may profitably be allowed to remain nameless,
are spoken of as interesting and easy.
It is an ancient University tradition
that the Freshman is a fair target for
ridicule. Everybody accepts his
ignorance as inevitable,—the professors do it, so do the other students,
i.ometimes even a Freshman with more
humility than the average recognizes
the fact. And yet sometimes it seems
that we scarcely do our duty as intellectual superiors. When the youth
from a country high school first comes
to college, there are many points of
which he feels entirely ignorant. He
would like advice, but he knows no
one who will give it him, except the
over-worked clerical staff. Hence he
often makes serious blunders in
choosing his courses, and through the
whole of his first year he wastes a
good deal of time, through sheer misdirection of effort. We do not wish
to reduce his independence in any
way, but it seems to us desirable that
some plan should be found whereby
the Freshman could be definitely assigned to a student of the senior years,
who could advise him, not only concerning his studies, but student activities as well. "The experience will
do them good, if they are left to their
own resources." That is the usual
objection. But University students of
all people should realize the immense
debt they owe to those pioneers in
civilization, whose mistakes serve for
our guidance. Have our own mistakes
taught us nothing that would be of
use to those who follow us?
Willamette Debate Tryouts
Try-outs for the Willamette Debate
will take place on Feb. 20, at 4 p.m.
The subject is "Resolved that France
is justified in her present occupation
of the Ruhr Valley." Contestants are
required to speak for three minutes.
All those desiring to try for places on
the debating team are requested to
hand in their names to Miss Morden
as soon as possible.
Last year the U. B. C. women visited Willamette University, Salem, Oregon, and lost the debate, Willamette
is coming here on March 16. The Literary Executive hopes that there will
oe many contestants so that the best
talent may be chosen for the debate.

Arts "25 defeated '26 in the inter
class debating series  last week
The speakers were Miss Helen McGill and Miss Phyllis Gregory for
Arts '25, and Miss Helen Dobie and
Miss Myrtle McCasslin for Arts '26.
The subject was: "Resolved that the
African colonies taken from Germany
by the Treaty of Versailles should
be returned to her under the German
The principal argument of the affirmative was that, as Germany had
fostered the growth of these colonies
she should now be allowed to benefit
by  any  prosperity  they  might  enjoy.
Those on the negative side claimed
that it was not fair to give these colonies back to Germany for her to
reap the benefit when she was not in
a fit condition to superintend their
Miss McGill's rapid and conclusive
rebuttal of her opponents' arguments won the day for Arts '25. The
judges were Miss Bollert, Miss McKay and Mr. Robertson.
The final Inter-class debate for the
shield will take place between Arts
'24 and Arts '25 on Wednesday, Feb.
Miss Winnie Cawthorne and Miss
Jo Paradis are debating for Arts
'24. Arts '25 have not yet decided
who will represent that class.
The  Faculty  Women's  Club,  whose
contribution to the University in previous  years   has  been   the  Anne   Wes- j
brook    scholarship,    is    now    turning
its attention to a Furnishing Fund for
the  Women's  Dormitory  in   the  new
building at Point Grey.    Under their i
auspices, Dr. A. F. B. Clark will give a j
lecture  on   "Venice,"  illustrated  with j
fine plates, in the Auditorium on the
evening of Feb. 27.    The proceeds of
this    lecture will    be  given    by  the
Faculty Women's  Club  to their new

Dear  Sir:—
As members of the Student Body ve
read the Ubyssey religiously eaen Thursday. We enjoy, d tlie account of High
.Jinks very much, but wondered why the
Nurses' Skit was not mentioned. Perhaps the reporter did not appreciate it,
but at least a liltle time and trouble
was spent on it. Though not the largest body in the University, we feel sure
the Nurses are entitled to some recognition. For instance, how about the disappearance from the main hall of the
poster advertising a Social evening?
Perhaps the people who evidently found
some use for it would kindly return
same at their earliest convenience.

Arts '25 made rapid strides in the
race for the Governor's Cup last Friday at Chalmers Church when they
emerged victorious from an extremely
stubornly contested swimming meet.
It was nip and tuck in most of the
races and much latent swimming talent was uncovered.
The feature event of the meet was
the diving exhibition which was won
by Frank Penwill, Arts '25. Fred
Newcombe and Cecil Upsall were
runners up in this event. The 50
yards free style also gave the fans
much to enthuse over and the race
went to Bruce McDonald, Arts '26, by
inches. The 50 yards backstroke was
featured by the disqualification of
Cyril Jones, Sc. '23, who failed to
touch the end of the tank with both
hands. However, Fred Newcombe,
who was declared the winner, refused
to take the race and generously offered to reswim it. Newcombe's good
sportsmanship was well commented
upon by Norman Cox, announcer of
the meet, and is something which is
worthy of encouragement among all
Varsity athletes.
The results of the meet were as
Class winners—(1) Arts '25, 18
points; (2) Science '23, IT points;
(3) Arts '26, 13 points; (4) Agriculture, 7 points.
The winners of the events were:
Plunge—(1) Alan Stewardson, Arts
26; (2) Alan Hunter, Arts '23; (3)
Fred  Newcombe,  Agriculture.
50 yards breast stroke—(1) Cyril
Jones, Sc. '23; (2) Harry Purdy, Sc.
'2'6; (3) Harold Cantelon, Arts '24.
Time:   38  seconds.
50 yards freestyle—(1) Bruce MacDonald, Arts '26; (2) F. Penwill, Arts
'25; (6) Archie McVittie, Sc. '23.
Time:   30  2J5 seconds.

"Nighties" vs. Gowns
The discussion tended to become
heated at the last meeting of the
Sigma Delta Kappa when one of the
speakers  compared   the  gowns  worn
by undergraduates to "nighties."
Prepared and impromptu speeches on
varied topics helped to pass the evening.
Among the speakers were Winnie
Cawthorne, Ullian Cowdell, Wilfred
Kelly, Barry Gault, Eric Dunn and G.
Professor Sage has been invited to
attend the next meeting of the Society to be held February 20. Discussion will he in order on the subject
"Resolved, that the colonies taken
from Germany in 1918 be returned to
her." The speeches will include several impromptu talks.
Nominations for Treasurer of the
A. M. U. S. must be handed in today.
The nominations are to be signed by
ten members of the A. M. U. S. The
sheets may be left in the letter-rack
of the main hall, or may be given to
the president, (Hunter Lewis, or the
secretary H. B. Smith.
Jock Lundie has resigned the position to become the University Marshall.
W. V. Smitheringale, Science '24,
at a meeting of the Engineering Discussion Club, Tuesday noon, gave a
very instructive speech on the outfit
necessary for a prospector, the means
of transportation and the methods
employed in prospecting.

February 15th, ?192It
Milers may be divided into two
classes; those who don't sprint at the
finish and those who do. A miler
should make up his mind which class
he belongs to and run accordingly.
The object of the miler who doesn't
sprint should be to get so far ahead
of those that do that he cannot be
overtaken at the finish. That is to
say, he must set a fast pace and kill
the other fellows' sprint. The man
who sprints should pick out the particular man whom he thinks is his
fastest opponent and follow just a little behind him, never letting him get
too far ahead. Then about 220 yards
from the finish of the race he should
gradually increase his stride and pass
his opponents on tae straightaway
rather than on the curve of the track
if possible.
Any good miler should run a mile
in five minutes. One way of attaining this time is to run for five minutes. Measure the distance that you
are short of a mile. Then next day
try and reduce this distance by a few
yards and so on always quitting when
you have run five minutes until eventually you can make the distance. If
you can't you had better run some
other race for you are not a miler.
But of course you can't expect to run
it in five minutes right away; it takes
time and perseverance.

The Women's Interclass  Basketball
. competition    got   off   to   a   successful
; start   last   Thursday    at   the   Normal
gym.,   when   Arts   '23   and    Arts   '24
i emerged the victors after two strenu-
j ous struggles with Arts '26 and Nursing.    In the first game Arts '23 trim-
■ med  Arts  '26  by  the  score  of  12—6.
At half-time the Seniors led 6—0.  The
game was scrappy and hard checking
was   indulged   in   by  both   sides.     The
brand   of   basketball   served   up   was
fairly    good    considering    the     little
chance of practice which was afforded
the teams.
Tlie line-up: Arts '23—Lillian Lock-
lin, Eve Eveleigh, Gladys Weld, Doris
Lee and Janet Carrie.
Arts '26—Alda Moffat, Winona
Straight, Evelyn Price, Grace Swencisky, Doris McKay.
The second game brought together
Nursing and Arts '24, and the game
proved a walk-away for Arts '24. Tt
'excelled in all departments, and the
game was featured by the stellar
shooting of Eloise Angell, who seemed
to be able to find the basket from almost any part of the floor. The final
score was 28—6.
The teams: Arts '24—Eloise Angell, Verna Turner, Isobel McKinnon,
Dorothy Peck and Myrtle Kievell.
Nursing—Bea Pierce, Norah Armstrong, Ann Hedley, M. Hill, Bea Johnston.
The silver-suited dusk stole by;
The  woods grew dimmer;
And the blue hills, and the gold  sky,
And the grey sea's glimmer.
The trees were columns grey as stoue,
Amojig the shadows,
And the air sweet with incense blown
From  inland  meadows.
P. F.
Contributions for the Literary Supplement, which will be issued next month,
should be in the hands of the Literary
Editor, Miss Lucy Ingram, by March I.
Both verse and prose contributions will
be received. The latter should not exceed  seven  hundred  words  in  length.
The Men's Oratorical Contest will
take place February 28, at 8 p.m. in
the Auditorium. The speakers will
choose their own subjects. Those entering the finals are P. Al. Barr, S.
Kobe, H. Plummer, G. B. Riddehough,
A. L. Wheeler and J. C. Wilcox.
The contests on Monday night
brought together Arts '23 and Arts '25,
and Nursing and Arts '26. The game
between Arts '25 and Arts '23 was
played with only four players on each
side, and proved a thriller from first
to last not only to the fans but also
to the participants. It was one of
those hectic interclass battles which
are rarely ever seen. Arts '23 led all
the way through the first half, finishing with the score 12—4 in their favor. After half-time Arts '25 came
back strong and pulled up to Arts '23
at 12 all. Here many things happened, and after the smoke of battle had
cleared it was necessary that the
game be declared a draw. The final
score when the game was called off
stood at 14—14. Both sides maintain
that they would have won had the
game been continued. Doris Shorney
received a bad injury which necessitated her retirement from the game.
The teams: Arts '23—Lillian Lock-
lin, Grace Smith, Grace Weld, Doris
Arts '25—Doris Shorney, Isobel Russell, Helen Tatlow, and Vic. Swencisky.
The second game resulted in a decisive win for Arts '26 by the score
of 33—0. Nursing was not in the picture at any stage of the proceeding
and '26  scored at will.
The teams: Arts '26—Alda Moffat,
Winona Straight, Evelyn Price, Grace
Swencisky, Doris McKay.
Nursing—Bea Pearce, Norah Armstrong, Ann Hedley, M. Hill, Bea Johnston.
The chief point of discussion at the
meeting of the Students' Council last
Monday evening was the Injuries
Trust Fund. A new draft of the conditions has been made and reread by
the treasurer. The treasurer has also
gone over the text with the assistance of legal advice. For the purpose
of presenting the new draft of the
Fund to the students an Alma Mater
Society meeting has been set for tomorrow noon.
Air. Richardson, of the Trades and
j Labor Council of this city, has sug-
! gested to the Council that the student
j body pass a resolution condemning
the low rate of wages paid by the
government to those workers engaged
in the clearing of the University site.
The Council, however, deemed such
a course inadvisable owing to present
conditions and the present relations
with the government. It was decided
that Mr. Richardson might address
the students on the rate of wages.
This matter was placed in the hands
of the Literary and Scientific Department which expects that a meeting
will be held soon.

disgraceful. Surely you're not afraid
to bring your troubles to dear old

right up. Broken hearts mended

Another Argument in Favor of
The Second Narrows  Bridge
(Nilly-Cork Feature)
Well, Miss Nilly and I were both
over at North Vancouver a week ago
Wednesday. Of course we didn't go
over alone, you know, hut Arts '25
had a party over there at Miss Gwen j
Newcomhe's place, and we were both
there. We went together too. They
had a set of those traps over there
and a piano to accompany them so
the music and dancing were wonderful. But the best part about the
whole  thing was the  supper.
Miss Nilly and I had supper together. We went up to the top step
of the stairs, figuring that we would
eat up there. It was rather dark but
we managed to get along all right.
And now comes the most peculiar
thing that ever happened; we both
forgot to eat any supper, we even
forgot to get a drink of coffee. I
can't understand it at all; Miss Nilly
says she never did anything like that
before, and I know that I never forget my Latin homework. I guess I'll
have to ask Uncle Josh about it. I
asked all the girls I danced with
afterwards if they could explain it,
and they said they thought it was the
funniest thing they ever heard about.
And speaking about girls, I must
say that I believe I have discovered
the way of becoming the most popular young man in the University. I
was going to keep it a secret but for
the sake of the rest of you fellows
I'll let it out. All you've got to do is
to tell every girl you dance with that,
with the exception of Miss Nilly,
she's the finest looking girl and the
best dancer at the party. I danced
with every girl there, the other night,
and said the same thing to each one:
I'm sure I must have made an impression.
We were supposed to get the last
ferry home. The rest of them did,
but Miss Nilly and I went for a little
walk and the  time flew so fast that
we missed it. What were we to do?
I scratched my head and scratched it
but I could think of no way of getting
across the inlet.
"Couldn't we get a row boat?" said
Miss Nilly, timidly breaking in upon
my scratching.
"Why, yes, I wouldn't be surprised
if we could," I answered. Funny that
I hadn't thought of getting a boat,
wasn't it? I had thought of swimming across and of walking around
the North Arm, but the idea of getting a boat had never entered my
head. After a while we found an old
tub down there by a pier. I pulled
out my nail file and with one stroke
untethered the rope. .Miss Nilly got
in and I pushed off.
"Are you sure you're not afraid,
Miss Nilly?" I queried, as I heaved
upon the oars with my eyes fixed on
"I don't think so," she answered,
gazing up into my eyes in a trusting
manner. I guess she knew there was
nothing to fear as long as it was me
that she was with.
I rowed and rowed and rowed and
rowed. When we were about half
way across I told Miss Nilly that it
was her turn. Then she rowed and
rowed and rowed and rowed. Believe
me, .Miss Nilly swings a good oar.
Anyway she rowed the rest of the
way and I sat in the back and supported her morally, etc.
But in a report like this I'll have
to leave out those things that don't
directly concern the party. By the
time we got ashore, and then home,
the ruddy streaks of dawn were
, tinging the eastern horizon.
Well, good-night, Miss Nilly," I
murmured, as I stood wilting on the
"Good-night, Mr. Cork," she gasped,
"and thanks ever so much for the
| wonderful time I've had."

In the second  inter-class debate of

over  Arts   '24,   last   years   holders   of
the   cup,   when  they   successfully  upheld the affirmative of the resolution
"That  the  Dominion  Government immigration  policy is in the best interests   of   Canada."     Alex   Zoond   and
Ernest   Hope   upheld   the   affirmative
and Harold Cantelon and Lloyd Wheeler  spoke  for  the  negative.    A  large j
crowd   was   in   attendance   and   gave !
a very attentive hearing to the speak- j
ers.   Professors, Hutchinson, Williams (
