Pep of Pups
dives Pop
the Pip
At Doe Sedgwick would tay, "The
latt Pep Meeting was a pippin." Indeed It was a howling tuecets from
the advent ot "Komi* Kenny" Stewart
and "Baby" Berto to the welcome succumbing at the Irrepressible Doc to
hit well-known "heart dlteate." To
begin srlth Berto and his silent shadow (Ssy, did you notice how scared
Kenny looked as he followed his
leader through the intricacies of the
foreign yells!t) lend the tnagniflclent
and intelligent (Sorry, forgot this
wasn't a political meeting) led the
student audience In a yell which to
untrained ears sounded like "BOIL-
INO WASHING!I" (Maybe it meant
"Bully WMhlnton") (N. B.—This is
only a guess) Really, if one might
be so rude m to suggest It to the
gentlemen concerned, It might help
rouse some of that enthusiasm, which
Mr. William Thompson says is to be
desired, If the yell leaders just, set to
work and learned the yells they were
trying to teach. As Mr. Bob Wright
said, "There seems to be a difference
of opinion between the yell leaders."
However, to return to Important
things, the orohettra rendered teveral
pieces which were well received, so
well Indeed that the audience even
preferred an encore to listening to the
above-mentioned Mr. Thompson.
Dr. Burke, who has volunteered as
coach of the American Rugby Team,
then spoke. He commented on the
"Wonderful turnout" at the meeting
and told the students how much It
meant to the team. He told them
some of his "dreams about this
school." He saw the inter-colleglate
sport of the U. B. C. widening out to
embrace the whole of the Pacific coast,
a magnlflclent stadium un the campus, a great gymnasium which somo
phantom financier wps going to donate, and many other things.
As for the "fleahette lukululu ladles"
little need be said. The most Interesting things about them were Betty's
Interluded asides (Invisible beyond the
third row) and the fact that two members of the real orchestra hid behind
the piano. The best Item on the program, outside of Mr. Thompson's
speech, of course, was the flat-tired
comedy, "The Nahy Lincoln Straight
Four" (Ves, Alphonse that. In English
means FORD), in which Jolinney McLean and his blown-out cohorts from
the Rioters (pardon me!) Rooters
Club, performed. It was the cat's
miaow as they used to say lu prehistoric times in ancient China.
Doc Sedgwick then "favored us with
a few words" containing a large
amount of worldly wisdom and much
humor. He began with an etymological discussion of the use of the letters "P" combined with the various
vowels; but as this paper has a discriminating set of readers his conclusions will not here be printed. Most
of his speech dealt with the question
of attending the Rugby game. He
said concerning American Rugby,
"This college Is either big enough to
hold both English and American
Rugby or It Is too small for either."
And In regard to Saturday's same, he
declared, "I am going to the game tomorrow expecting you to lose. If you
win I will have n violent attack of
heart disease  but who cares a
hoot about that." (Loud Cheers). Tho
meeting broke up amid a few yells
anil much confusion with Berto and
Stewart In the air,

Last Hall1 Exciting and Keenly Contested.   Currle Stars
Urged on by the frantie yelle of the Varsity rootera, the Canadian Ruggers fought valiantly to hold the fast-stepping Wathlngton Froth, but finished up twenty-one points on the wrong side Yet Varsity showed that
they were in the game to stay, and were profiting hy their experience in previous contests.
Previous to the game the remnants of the old fllelns Band upheld the
ancient traditions, and paraded to the Park. While the result was neither
a harmonic imitation of Mozart, or a decided success as far as encouraging
the Contervatlvt population of Vancouver to Join the maniacs at the game,
the culprits thoroughly enjoyed themselves, and incidentally saved their carfare. They are Indebted to the Coca Cola Company for the use of their truck,
and of six dosen bottles, presumably
In the preliminary fixture, Hyacks
beat Merojamas in a City League fixture, 3-1. The game was tight and
exciting and made an excellent opener.
The first half, played under Canadian Rules, was better for Varsity,
and was the feature play ot the game.
U. B. C. played well, but was forced
back by the efficient line bucking of
the Americans. However, Varsity's
strong back line kept the young Huskies from inflicting damage other
than one touchdown and one deadline
kick; bringing the score up to seven
Strange to say, hi the second halt
Varsity showed to better advantago,
but with an entirely new team on
the gridiron, and a more scientific
knowledge of the fine points of the
game, the Washington boys managed
to double the score they made in the
first half. They began by wading
down the field for a touch immediately on the resumption of play. Varsity
came back, and aided by one of
Hall's splendid punts, forced the
Frosh to their own fifteen-yard line,
and Varsity fans had a chance to use
their lungs. But the superior knowledge ot the rivals told In the pinch,
and back down the green swerved
the play.
A few minutes later, Scott, a Washington star, came down the field In
brilliant fashion, gaining eighty
yards by his shifty movements. He
took the ball on a blocked kick, and
ended up between the posts.
From thiB point until the final
whistle, Varsity kept the play in her
opponents' half, but the Yanks were
true to their name, and Haul, "thou
shalt not pans," and Varsity, always
courteous, obliged, Varsity gave a
masterly exhibition, making ground
consistently by clever running, bucking and kicking, but failed to culminate their efforts in points.
Nearly every player starred at
some time In the game, but Hall, Currle, Anderson and Seed merit special
note, while Scott, Atkinson, and For-
man were stars among stars.
The   student    body    backed    their
team   well,   and   seem   pleased   with

Advisory Committee on Friday, teams
were chosen to represent U, B. C. In
the three luter-col'eglate contests of
the year.
The Oregon-Ida ho-U. B. 0. Triangle

The subjects suggested for the
Oregon-Idaho debate are as follows:
"Resolved that we pity our grandchildren," and "Resolved that the
discovery of America was an unfortunate event."
McGiil Outlines
Rules for Frosty
The Student's Council has compiled a list of twelve rules to be obeyed by all freshmen. In addition to
these rules there nre certain special
rules passed by the Sophomores of
each faculty which for state reasons
must remain a dark secret until after
the rush.
The following rules passed by the
Students Council should not be regarded as hardships, but as common
Jionds between the members of the
Freshman  Class.
1--Learn "The Alma Mater," Slug
it   standing and  uncovered.
2 -Learn : s ninii) McGiil songs as
you can and nil her yells.
:i -Wear your freshman cap until
you are given permission to discard
4—Remove your cap on ■ entering
any University building, including the
5—Uncover when passing the Principal or Dean of your faculty.
6—Treat all upperclassmen with respect and speak to them only when
spoken to.
7—Watch for announcements of
class meetings, rooters' practices, etc.,
and attend these regularly.
8—Note carefully any temporary
rules or regulations for frgshmen
which may appear from time to tlmo
in tho "Daily."
9—If you think that you have
grounds for complaint on account of
treatment which you have received
at the hands of upperclassmen, do not
create a .scene on the campus, but report the matter to the Secretary of
the Student's Executive Council. You
will always be given a fair hearing.
Itememlier that no sensible undergraduate Is In favour of any form of
hazing or rushing which Is Inconsistent with your self-respect and dignity,
Obey the rules set forth above and
you will have no cause for complaint.
10 Do not get the impression that
organized lights with the Sophomore
clasH are a feature of college life,
Iteguluted contests, authorized by the
Students' Executive Council are held
each year, and on these occasions you
will have opportunity of using your
strength to the full.
11-Never forgot McOUl's reputation for good sportsmanship. Cheer
lustily when the team Is behind. Never hiss a member of an opposing
team, but rather show your apprecla-

Sororities Active
The Committee for the Women's
Union Building it well satisfied with
the interest and support that is being
given this movement- The students
have realized that this project means
a great deal to the University women in the future, and because ot
this, they are willing to do their bit
towards the establishment of the
The central committee itself has
few plans formed for this session.
It depends mostly upon other clubs
and societies to aid it In Us campaign
for funds, and up to this time its system has proved very successful.
A great amount of the money already
at the disposal of the committee was
collected by societies connected with
or interested in the University.
The girls themselves have taken a
great lnterost in the proposed Women's Building and are doing their
best to help it along. This support
has taken concrete form with the different sororities. The Tau Omlcron
sorority has already donated th*
surprisingly large sum of $200, which
was raised during the summer
months by raffling a hope-cheat. The
glrs of this sorority deserve a great
deal ot credit tor this splendid donation. Tha. Tbeta Epsllon sorority
held a bridge at the Ambassador on
October 17th, which netted about
S100, and they plan selling tags next
Saturday at the Brockton Point
game, the proceeds also to be donated to this purpose. The Delta Phi
sorority held a rummage sale last
Wednesday, October 28th, tn aid of
the Women's Union Building, and
cleared approximately $105. These
splendid efforts on the part of the
sororities arouse for them the appreciation of the student body, and
the promise of still greater support
in this movement from the women
Mention of the Women's Union
Building would not be complete without reference being made to Education's stand. The full value of this
stand was easily seen while it was
in operation. Education students
readily gave up their noon hours that
the stand might be kept open, and
worked splendidly for Its success.
The proceeds are for the Women's
Union Building ,and the class of Education '26 deserves a hearty vote of
thanks from the student body.
The committee members have a
scheme at present by means of which
they hope to realize still greater
funds. This is the Idea of putting
on one or two plays soon after the
Christmas vacation. The Players'
Club have offered their services for
the production of these, and the
funds realized would be devoted entirely to the Women's Union Building. The girls of the grass hockey
teams are also planning to aid the
committee by selling candy on the
campus at noon hours.
With schomes such as these, It is
hoped that sometime, as near as possible In the future, the objective of
the committee will be reached, and
with perhaps a little help from the
Government, the Women's Union
Building wl!! become an established
fact. The women students cannot be
loo strongly urged to back up the
committee; to give them suggestions
as lo how to make money, and to
help them carry out these suggestions, It Is only by full co-operation
that tho end for which they work
will soon be accomplished; It is up
to the students to see that they get

The public opinion ogre seems to be raising its head, once more,
within the University. Occasionally in discussions of social activity
and other student problems, the argument is advanced that we should
guide ourselves by the opinions of the taxpayers, whose money
placed us here. It is regrettable that such a temerity, nnd such a
'misconception of our privileges as university students should exist.
It should not be laid at the door of 1J. B. C. students that, in Vancouver today, there are men, and perhaps women, who look upon the
University as a "hot-bed of radicalism," simply because a few of the
students have the temerity to criticize certain British institutions.
It was by criticism that the existing form of British government was
brought to its present advanced stage—it is by criticism that it will
advance still farther. By no means should we cringe and fawn before
a stagnant form of public opinion. University students have unusual
advantages in reasoning out different problems. That is what a University is for, to encourage original thought and interpretation. No
student should be afraid to discuss any question, or to uphold any
opinion that he honestly believes right, simply because he thinks
public opinion is against him. The Ubyssey, this year, stands for
free speech and for free thought.
In the days of Augustus, tho emperor recommended candidates
for offices; these men the people elected; today, parties recommend
their candidates; the electors select them. Usually public opinion is
so definite in its affections that it bestows the political hegemony
on one party. In this election, however, the public lias coyly refused
to give too much attention to any party. The present situation is
quite the reverse of what occurred in lil'JI. As a result of that election Liberals had 117 seats, the I'mgri'ssivi's (II, Conservatives -HI;
now the figures are Conservatives  11(1,  Liberals IKS,  I'rou'ressives :!0.
Various courses are open to I lie leaders ol' the two more important parties. Mr. King,relying on the support of every non-Conservative member in the House, may appeal to I'ttrliainent for a vote of
confidence. If he obtains this he can form a government if he does
not, naturally he must resign. Then Mr. Meighen could be called
upon to form a government. In the event of both parties failing to
secure the confidence of the House, Parliament will be dissolved after
voting the necessary supplies. Thus, another election would be unavoidable.
Obviously Mr. King's policies have been, to a certain extent,
rejected by the, electors. When the Liberal party does not win a
majority, when seven of its ministers fail to secure election, when
Mr. King, himself, is defeated, then, in part, the Prime Minister's
tenets have been turned down. No less obvious is the rejection of
the Progressive party, or the so-called Liberal-Progressive coalition.
Mr. King, himself, said that a clear majority was essential to the
"well-governing" of Canada. But it must be remembered thnt as
long aa Mr. King has the confidence of Parliament he is perfectly
entitled to hold office.
Another general election, moreover, in so brief »n interval would
not only be expensive to the country, but it might not have a vastly
different result. Outwardly the present situation in Canada is analogous to that which produced the Labor government in Britain. To
the unskilled observer it seems that the difference between the policies of the two parties is not sufficient to bring about a sharp expression of opinion.
British Columbia's bill for education
In the fiscal year of 1923-192-1, Including government grants and local taxation for all classes of schools—embracing the Provincial University as
well—amounted to 18,196,698.71, says
au editorial In The Victoria Times. It

The Students' Grill, it is supposed,
Is meant to be a non-profit-making
institution, and yet one Is able to buy

It Is possible for students to get a

operating for the benefit of tho students; It there no way by which it can
be brought wlthint their reach?
Yours sincerely,

Undergraduates and
Roys will be boys, oven when they
do Krow Into lonK pants. This naughty
element It still evident In a large
number of the students of tho U.B.C,
nnd only a few flrecrakors need go
off to transform these prave, sedate
youths Into kids of 13 or 14. If the
truth were known, It Is feared that
many men, and not merely Freshmen,
are guilty of having "gone out" on
Saturday night. Indeed there Is some
Incriminating evidence to prove that
Borne college men indulged In their
puerile pranks on Hallowe'en night.
One lady says that she saw her garbage-can departing between two chaps
who "appeared to be dressed up with
a separate skirt on each leg." Another man swears that the fellow who
took his gate wore spats. Yet another
gentleman has In his possession a
piece of material which a "young
rogue" had evidently left behind in
his haste to get over the fence. This
material Is of a light, grayish-brown
hue, and of a checker-board pattern.
Now who else but a University student would be wearing such trouserage?
It is, however, a good thing that the
boys get a chance now1 and then to
discard their serious, growu-up air,
and become their natural selves for
a bit.
Petters' Club Holds
Successful Meeting
At the regular bi-weekly meeting of
the Petters Club held last Tuesday at
the home of Allison Mashwell, an interesting paper was read on Dark
Corner Athletics by Chesterfield Rugby when some fifteen members of all
sexes were present. Mr. Rugby was
thoroughly wrapped up In his subject
quoting voluminously from Eleanor
Olyn and E. M. Hull and Dorothy Dlx.
A lively discussion was led by Miss
Jones, who based her arguments on
her wide and extensive knowledge of
Freud, after which coffee -was unable
to be served, but a novel effect was
Introduced by the serving on the
stairs of more solid refreshments, Including sandwiches and Roly-polys,
after which Dr. Herpiclde offered a
short talk on Cruah, Orange and otherwise," the meeting then breaking up
at 8.30 p.m. In order.
All roads will lead Thursday lo t'.ie
Mathematics Club meeting, when Eric
Korster addresses the Club on the
measurement of intelligence. The
Chess Club, Petters' Club and Devil
Worshippers will all attend in force,
as will most of the other members of
the student body. A lively discussion
Is anticipated, In view o[ the controversial nature of the subject.

Although the few faithful supporters were drawn to the major game
of the week-end, thlt fact did not
hinder the U. B. G. team from bringing the Rowing Club hutklet to a
sad defeat. After a tough atruggle
on the cricket create at Brockton
Point the fame ended with a tcore
ot 12-0, in the students' favor. The

attempts at converta, all were unsuccessful, and all points were gained by
their eight tries.
The   Athletics   excelled   In   speed

Another feature of tills great bill
will be the comedy sketch "Al's Here"

Hotel Vancouver
Vanquish UeB.C.
Another sad defeat was registered
against Varsity Second Team at
Granville Park on Saturday when thu
Hotel Vancouver eleven took Itt
measure to the tune of 9-1.
Varsity started off with a hang
and ran the opposition raggod with
snappy passes and wicked shots.
Tho first goal cams when the backs
were drawn out and Bill Gray broke
through Into a clear field to send
home a high drive. Unfortunately,
the Varsity forwards slackened their
pace and stowed up on checking.
"Robbie" Robertson played a whirlwind same at left full-back, breaking
up attack after attack and ofteu
clearing effectively. The score was
evened when the Hotel forwards
rushed the goal—Miller blocked the
ball but was charged before he coald
get rid of it.
Varsity worked hard after the interval, out lacked successful combination partly because the right
wing forwards, who were fed consistently, played too close together. Tom
Warden tested the Hotel goalie with
a couple of dangerous shots.
North   Vancouver   can   claim   another star goal-keeper in George Miller, who on Saturday, substituted in
brilliant form and saved Varsity from
having    a    rugby    score    mounted
against   them.     Three   goals   were
marked against him, but all were difficult to save.   For the second counter   the   ball   bounced   between   the
crossbar and ground, Miller cleared,
but  a second  low  shot fooled  him.
Tho final tally was  the result of a
pretty combined rush.
Lineup was at follows:
Miller;  D. E. Warden and Robertson;     Swanson,     Gibbard,     Leek;
Stevens, T. Warden, Evans, Spills-
bury and Gray,

Congratulations are due to the Canadian Rugby Club in reducing the
leeway In the score ot Saturday's
game over the C. P. S. contest. It
augurs well for the chances the game
has at Varsity. An interesting feature waB the fact that the Washington boys Just doubled the score in
the Canadian code that they made in
the second halt. This shows that
Varsity is learning by experience, and
has mastered the tricks of the othor
code in holding the visitors to seven
points at their own game. But surely the Yanks don't have to show us
how to play Canadian Rugby, too.
North Vancouver Is famous for
goal-keepers. First Mother, then
King and now Miller,
Congratulations are due to the
U, B. C. and Freshmen Rugby squad,
and to the Varsity Grass Hockey
team hi registering wins. We had
been considering ordering a thousand
heads along the line of "Varsity loses
another." ^
