This thoeght formed tho keynote of

the Auditorium on Thursday, whsn

In introducing tho speaker, Acting-
Preeldent Brook reminded the audi-
onoo that Mr. Orove had achieved international prominence through his

Mr, Grove began by saying that he
would speak on thO principles under*

Snd material wealth may make a oo-un*
try prosperous but they do not make
It a great nation. "True civilisation
Is spiritual not material," the speaker stated. "Material civilisation Is
harmful to « nation that Is not ready
for It." Spain was given as an example
Of a nation thst had built up a great
material civilisation but had fallen
with it.
"Is that what we covet for Canada?"
he asked, and continued that Canadian

Somie prosperity is temporary. "We

Mr. Groves then wont on, to speak
Of the things of whieh Canada may
be truly proud. The fact that the
French Canadians have kept their distinctive uotlOttoJtty ia spite of their
Inferiority in numbers, is a source of
pride for the whole of Canada.
Canada should also take pride In
e way she has maintained her na-
lonal entity from being absorbed into
lat of her prosperous southern neighbor, the United States.
< The speaker pointed out how the
influence of the United States was
Spreading throughout the world. He
maintained that this "Amerlconlsa*
tion" is a danger as It oonoentrates
on the material and not the spiritual

fears that the great "Anglo-Saxon

This tradition, an Important part of

On Monday night, from 6 to 7 p.m.,
approximately two hundred Freshmen

reluctant Freshie to pull htm back into the shadows. Just for a moment,
though, before he emerged transformed, and wearing gay pyjamas so

Then, through a narrow doorway he

for their captives, and sent thorn,

innocence must always be) through a
series of tortures calculated to leave
the babes no longer Fresh, but rather

whitewash, faces massaged with a diligent application of "cold cream" and
suits decorated with every known

Letters Club Holds
First Meeting
Thomas Hardy's famous tragedy,
"The Dynasts," was the subject of a
paper given by Miss Mary Watts at
the opening meeting of the Letters
Club this season, when members met
Wednesday night at the home of Miss
M. Bollert, 1185 Tenth ave. West.
Miss Watts gave an outline of the
play, Illustrating her paper with direct quotations from Thomas Hardy;
and showed how the author had interwoven his consistent philosophy
Into the tragedy.
Excerpts portraying the death of
Nelson and the fate of Napoleon
proved particularly Interesting to the
audience; and the paper dealt with
practically every phase of the work
of Thomas Hardy, which waa ahown
to be Illustrated In the "The Dynasts."
Enthusiastic discussion which gradually narrowed to Hardy's philosophy
followed the reading of the paper,
Snd Individual members told of their
various reactions to the philosophy
of  the  great  artist.
Business transacted at the meeting
Included the appointment ot a committee to Investigate plans for celebrating the tenth anniversary of the
club. Mrs. H. F. Angus, Miss Margaret Grant, and Laurence Meredith,
president of the olub, wore elected
to form tbe committee. The meeting

Are Discussed
The flrst lecture of this season to
be given In the university open
to the public was delivered In the
Auditorium on Monday afternoon,
when Yusuke Tsurumi addressed
the students and a number of Vancouver citizens on the subject of
"Japan, China and Russia."
As leader of the New Liberal party,
which holds tbe balance of power in
the Japanese Diet, Mr, Tsurumi ts in
a position to give authoritative information on a subject which is of
especial interest to Canada to-day.
He was Introduced by Dean Brook,
who spoke briefly of the development
of world trade on the Pacific, and the
resulting economic Importance of
Canada and Japan to one another.
Mr. Tsurumi then in a few words
sketched Japan as she is to-day, the
occidental atmosphere ot the cities,
with their large buildings, moving
picture theatres, baseball fields and
Ford oars, and the rural districts,
where even the children speak a
broken English. This, the sneaker
pointed out, la the result of the enthusiasm of the Japanese for western
He then mentioned some of the Important developments in Japan within the last sixty years, of which probably the most remarkable Is the work
done in combatting ignorance through
compulsory education. Another important development ln the people
themselves is their acquisition of an
international mind. This is directly
attributable to the splendid newspapers* of Japan which publish the
speeches of statesmen of all nations
and the activities of the League of
The speaker then dealt with the important problem of Japan's) over-population, showing that war, emigration,
and birth control have failed to solve
lt, and that tho -only solution Uos in
turning large numbers of people from
the pursuit ot agriculture to that of
industrialism. As he pointed out, this
problem ia not primarily one of Increased numbers, but of the Increased
cost of living, due to the spread of
education and tbe resultant rise of
economic standards.
Japan's policies towards China were
next outlined. Mr. Tsurumi showed
that Japan's Interest In China la sustained by the tremendous luvestmente
she has there, by her trade, and by
the fact that one quarter of a million
Japanese are living ln China. The
Japanese people are sympathetic with
the Chinese Nationalists, but they
favor above all disarmament and outlawry of warfare.
Time did not permit the speaker to
deal fully with Japan's policies regarding Russia. He pointed out the fact,
however, that these are necessarily
dictated by Japan's desire to keep
pesos with China, whose geographical
proximity to Russia makes this difficult.
In conclusion the speaker stated
his hope that the Interest of Japan
In Canada and the United Statea may
be reciprocated, and that through the
exchangn of correct information greater understanding will result between
the two civilisations.

University Possesses
Fine Collection
Of Relics
In the library of the University is a
collection of curious roUos, rated as
tbe most complete representative
Polynesian collection ln tho world. A
member of the faoulty who toured
Europe thla summer expressed the
opi.ilon that it waa the finest collection he had seen. The collection was
made by Mr. Frank Burnett, who during a period of 98 years sailed around
the Cannibal Islands In ths South Pacific. Bill Tansley superintends this
museum of relies.
Among tbe exhibits are several
skulls, victims of eannibal orgies. Another Interesting exhibit Is a witchdoctor's magic wand, which invariably
caused the death of tho superstitions

At the first Alma Mater meeting of the year there are bound
to be ft few suggestions which we could make to the Student
Body and thetr executive. We do not wish to criticize our fellow-
members of the Alma Mater Sooiety, but we would remind them
that it Is a custom and indeed but a courtesy to remain standing
until the Students' Counoil leaves the Auditorium. It is impossible for the senior years to try to stem the tide, which unfortunately they did not all seem to do, and the Students'
Oounoil naturally do not wish to strain their new dignities too
muoh by ordering them to stop, or forcing their way through.
Surely lt would be possible to explain this Varsity custom to
the freshmen at some preliminary gathering, or even during
the course of the meeting itself, if necessary.
The question of collecting the names of those in attendance,
Is a difficult one, but it has to be faced. Wednesday's method
only increases the usual commotion in the hall, and certainly
prevents people getting to the meeting on time. It has been
suggested that special slips of paper be provided for this purpose
by the Council. These could be signed before the meeting,
and handed to someone at the door as each student entered.
Or else sheets of paper, one to each row, could be passed round
and signed during the meeting.

ever, this tradition still continues lo
In spite of the tremendous Influence
of the United States with its alluring
prosperity, Canada has maintained
hor nationality. She has lived for
nearly two centuries In the shadow of
hor mighty neighbor but haa refused
to become absorbed. She has resisted
the subtle influence of the floods of
Amerloan books and mngaslnes, alt of
which laud material success as the
aim ef man.
Tho speaker stressed the spiritual
OS the Important phase ot life. The
higher activities of man have three
branches, religion, science and art.
Through theae man seeks for the
fundamental values of goodness, truth
and beauty, to fulfil one single emotional desire which might be called a
"doolre for peace."
"Bet" he continued, "these things
cannot bo fathoand, perfection cannot
bo attained, and tho realisation of
this loads to the tragic reaction ot the
sent to tho fundamental conditions
of man's life on earth." Nationhood
moat depend upon a distinctive shade
of this reaction. Canada haa a oon*
tlnuatlon of the old European tradition as distinguished from the shallow materialism of the United States.
But there Is also a divergence, a
movement ot spiritual experience that
will ultimately lead to unified national movement of thought and art.
The Menorah Society will begin its
1928-29 season on October 7th, at the
new Community Centre, corner of
Eleventh and Oak streets. The meeting Is scheduled to open at 8.00 p.m.
Various business matters will bo attended to and two speakers will address the club. Doctor Petersky, head
of the Vancouver Institute, will give
a talk on the alms and purposes of
the Menorah, and Mr. Grossman will
welcome the Freshmen. The Menorah
Society Is devoted to the discussion of
current problems with particular reference to Jewish life and activity. All
those interested are cordially invited
to attend the coming meetings.
This movement lay at the baok of
Canada's real claim to nationhood. A
spiritual civilisation Is the only thing
that justifies a nation's place on
earth. Material civilisations fall, but
the spiritual live on. They are con*
cerned with ettirnally valid things.
Before concluding, he stated that
nationhood was developed by the common people. The peasants of Europe
form the basis of European tradition.
Canadians have, in addition, a new
hopefulness attributed by the speaker
to their ownership of the land they
work. "On this Individuality depends
nationhood," concluded  Mr. Grove.
Dean Brock thanked Mr. Grove on
behalf of the University and pointed
out that It was the duty of the university to preserve spiritual values.

Dear Sir:
May I avail myself ot your valued
columns to congratulate the students
on this year's Initiation.
After several years of experimentation, It appears that a happy medium
has been struck at last between the
"old time" Initiation and tbe so-
called "sate and sane" brand.
The "old time" ceremony with Its
attendant haslng and brutality has
gone forever. On the other hand, the
Bsafe and sane" Initiation has rapidly
degenerated until last year tho
casualty list proved more alarming
than was the case in "tho good old
This years Initiation appears to
combine tho necessary hilarity and
horseplay with a desirable lack of
violence and bullying. There was no
milk and water treatment whioh
would make the wholo thing tho
Isughlng-stook for tho Intended vie*
tlms; and yet there was no callous
humiliation of tha new-comers, in
faot the result Is aure to be tho development ot a sense of good-fellowship and co-operation among all mem*
bers ot the U.B.C.
The most satisfactory feature of
this year's Initiation ts that tho U.B.O.
Is at last showing soms real life and
letting the citisens of Vancouver
know that there Is actually a university at West Point Grey,
Yours sincerely,

served heads of chiefs with tbe flesh
all intact.   Photographs and charts
in all the cases fully explain and 11
lustrate the contents.
Two lovely Ecuadorian Indian
dresses are also displayed. There is
a varied collection ot Eskimo objects,
stoves, arrowheads, bows and arrows.
One great feature as one enters the
room Is the Eskimo kayak, covered
with sealskin made from tbe pelts of
the hairy seal.
An amusing spectacle Is the figure
of a Gilbert Islander clothed In a
ooat of native mall.
The Shark Goddess, a most uncouth
figure with a necklace of human
teeth, occupies a central position.
The figure would be appalling If one
only knew how many creatures suffered under the baneful influence of
the goddess.
Collections of rare and curious B. C.
Indian relics are on ohow, together
with a totem pole from Port Esslng-
ton. A feature or special Interest to
archaeologists is the group of Inca
and pre-Inca relics, a negroid featured head, and a rattle from the temple of Cusco used on the altar of the
Sun Temple. A more modern display
from the same neighborhood features
gourds, carved and colored, to represent the thrills of a bull fight.
Another feature In the Cannibal island collection Is that of tho curious
mowys used for exchange, ranging
from shell-rings lo a coll of rope,
called feathor-monfcy. In a enae labelled "mlscellaneoas" are a number of
curious tablets from Babylon, covered
with Cuneiform Inscriptions; an enormous fossil mammoth tooth from
Alaska; a stone face of Gautama,
Buddha, from the famous Bayou Temple, Angorthom, Cambodia; and a
beautiful silver forehead ornament
made by the Battak tribe in Sumatra.
Other exhibits Include a Japanese
a word, leg bones of the extinct Moa
bird, and a large variety of curios.
Clothing exhibited ln one oase
ranges from the most primitive waistband to the most complicated coat of
modern fashion. A formidable array
of clubs around the walls .Impresses
every visitor. A small space Is allotted to work of the Australian blacks.
Photographs of two members are
shown, together with boomerangs,
fire-sticks, throwing clubs, a sword
armed with shark's teeth, spears, and
A recent acquisition la a stone-
headed Indian olub with human scalp
attached, taken during the Rlel rebellion; together with a spade cast, 2000
years old, formerly in tlie possession
of Ll Hong Chang.
Among the more dullcsto eating
tools are aannlbal forks, meat dishes
and meat-hooks used In tbe consumption of human flesh. A few objects
from Africa on display are two Corsair, shields, some assegais snd a Zulu shield.
It would be Impossible to enumerate all the curious objects which this
museum contains. Moat of the visitors express wonder that one man
should have been so devoted In the
pursuit of ethnographical specimens,

The otudont has been found without honor In hts own varsity, according to Council's revelations, l*«r no
longer will the Idle aad the talkative
seek entertainment in the Ubrarjr's
hushed halls. All will be silent and
oven those who have squeaky heels
wilt walk on tholr toeo.
The idea has been taken from that
Sentloman who tours ths bulevsrds
ending out free note-paper to fast
motorists, aad so wtll tho now system
work. When a whisper startles the
laboring student reading tho latest
edition of "Punch," a ipoolal delegate
will affront tho evil-doer, demand (Us
name, age and the date of his last
vaccination, "imagine his embarrassment!"
The garruloui one then has to ap
pear In front of a stern, forbidding
coin-collector, who will painfully ex*
tract the breath-taking stuD of five
Otreot tar and fit* bus tlsksts.
At this rate tho Varsity will soon
become even more Penurious and oven
Oounoil Itself will have to economise
and usi the other side of the cord*
board for their posted notloes.
The custom may oven spread to
other Soldo and we may have Snes
for occupying too muoh space in the
new bus-stand, or even In tie busses,
walking too close to tbe edge of tho
worid-famea pond/ and taking mors
than five "Ubysseys."
'The heedless campus-walker wBi
be summoned for cutting comers. After being reprimanded Ik fined Wll
bo turned out into the harsh money-
seeking world.
Ittotdents like the following will
take place if the old style igilante
system is again renewed:
Vigilante—'»DM yon try to come in
to your lecture at 9.15 f"
Vigilante — "Well, that'll be fifty
cents and costs. Sign on tho dotted
Vigilante—"I caught you using the
hand-drier after your hands wore com*
pletely dry. Now don't argue, tell it
to tbe Counoil."
Freshie-~"But • but—"
Vigilante—"Aha! (Dropping elgar*
ettes around here. Well, you're due
for a major offence, and this is the
fifth time you've been caught That
means at least sixty-three cents."
Thus all activities will come to a
halt as the students queue up at the
various offices, courts, and rooms to
pay off their bad debts. Profs, will
gase on empty rows where once the
students slept, while the newly appointed bookkeepers chuckle over Increasing business.
The plaint of "Believe It or not: I
lost all my cantfon money in a week"
will be the new excuse for not buying tickets for rugby gomes.

"So you sent your son to college?
What Is he doing there?"
The Feature Page has unearthed a
now type of student attending Varsity, a swarthy son ot Mohammed;
and whon It was found out that he
was writing letters home to his rather
describing the University, he was per-
suaded with difficulty and a bribe ef a
hookah, to allow his epistles to he re*
veiled to the public. The style of
writing is at times strange, wordy aad
naive. Kls discovery Is related below, and his letters will fellow in later
(NO. 1.)
Accommodation in the lower com-
men room Is scarce, te soy the least.
However, by the grace ef Allan, and
the strength of fifty asserted Apaohos
and Chloago-ites, 1 suoosedod In penetrating to tho furthermost eorner, ln
quest of adventure. Here 1 found a
sight suoh as I expected to see only
In some fur dime; a tall, swarthy fellow clod ln Oriental garb, was seated
on an upturned keg, thoughtfully regarding a manusoript. A tew hundred
cigarette and cigar butts were Uttered around him. Me waa so muoh like
the average frequenter of the common
room, that he would have attracted no
attention, had it not been for one
immediately I ordered my men to
surround bim and take him to the
Pub. Office, where he could be questioned at leisure, but on arriving In
the halt, I found that *u body-guard
had deserted me, to match coins with
a group ef other Sclencemen. Thus
I woo. somewhat put out as to bow I
should deliver my discovery to the
Office, A brain-wave—hastily I opened my wallet, withdrew tbe bus ticket The man made a dive for It, but
I told him he couldn't have It for five
mtnutes. Then I made straight for
the Pub. Office. He was there before
me. Then the questioning began. No,
ho wasn't a Scotchman, but a real,
live, full blooded Turk, 99.44% pure,
name Abdullah Pasha, and a lot more
that sounded like a oross between a
camel driver cussing, and a co-ed
chewing Wrigley's.
Gee, you should bave heard him
talk, he was the goods all right. He
raved for hours on oamels, mules,
Sultans and Sultanas, the difference
between bis Arab horses and the Aggie Clydesdale, and along other lines;
at every turn showing us his intimate
knowledge of his country. When apprehended by myself, ho had been
writing a letter to his father, who, he
sold, was Sultan of some town with
a six or seven Inch name. We had
part of the letter translated by the
Chief Reporter, who Is used to deciphering reports, and at once volunteered to seal and post all bis family
mall, if ho would let us use them ln
our paper, He agreed on the condition that we should not publish them
ln his native tongue. As this was Impossible, we at once sealed the bargain, presenting the Turk with an
other bus ticket. He was delighted,
and, as before pointed out, being related to the Scotch, he at once decided to write home at least once ev
ery hour.
By dint of much arguing, verbal and
physical, we at laat limited him to
one letter per diem, hoping that in a
few weeks the Oriental would be subject to a severe writer's cramp, thus
enabling us to catch up on our postal
expenditures. After that the Prince
left the Office, and the staff promptly
collapsed; those who had chairs
slumped Into them, and the root of us
swooned away, to fall In a heap In
the middle of the floor.
When we had come to, and untangled
ourselves, we set to work to translate
Abdullah's letter, and the night watchman found us engrossed in our taak.
However, it will be ready for the next
Issue, that is, unless we encounter
further complications,

I am an artist. I belong to that
enlightened but persecuted school, tho
Group of Bight To me belongs that
divine Insight into the mysteries of
nature and varsity oars. Where others see merely a cow stropping Its
hack against a tree, I behold endless
vistas and geometrical contortions of
ultimate configurations In a hegemony
of eiotlo colors even beyond those of
the Auditorium,
Anyone can paint nature as It Is,
but, pooh I I paint things naturs never
dreamed of, like those of the Oaf. My
paintings depict, for tbe edification of
thoss who lack my genius, tho temp
eramental effect of nature upon my
plastic being, made so by trying to
cheek my ooat at tho Frosh Reception.
Although painting as a medium Is
Inadequate for the expression of my
desires, yet who can fall to behold ln
one of my masterpieces the unfetter*
ed clashing of obromatic. prismatic,
static and spectroscopic color-effusions
similar in effeot to a Science lab. No
ordinary artist—to use the word In Its
vulgar acceptation — oan appreciate
the cosmic impulse displayed in my
rendition In blue triangles of "8unset
on the Lily Pond."
As a proof of my genius I tell ths
following anecdote:
One day, among others, as I sat
before my easel patting on canvas the
concussions of the Soience Building, a
prominent Prat-man came up behind
"Whassat?" he queried In the manner of the vulgar.
To test him out I sold, "Have you
no soul'hunger that you cannot recognise true color-craving."
"New!" he answered, "I've Just finished eating."
"Well then, I'll inform you I That,
my good man," I oondesoended to relate to him, "that Is my Impression of
the Science Building."
"Oood gosh I" he groaned, as he
gased. "I've got 'em again."
And he staggered off, Weeing dismally.
Who can deny efflcoolty of my genius?

As a means of raising the extra
money used for the larger accommodations the Students' Counoil decided to
hold a raffle. Tickets sold by six ot
the most beautiful women on the
campus disappeared like air from a
tire at the time of a blowout. Dr.
Sedgwick was chosen to draw the
winning tickets and to present the
prises (?) Notable among the Winners
were Bill Turpin, and Jack Harkness.
Mr. Turpin caused the laugh of the
etenlng when he played with "tho
prince of nose-tweakers" In his own
manner. The prises consisted of ono
large and exceedingly well-proportioned 48-hour sucker, one excellently
chosen rattle, a beautiful horse which
was at least six Inches ln height, one
sweet baby, seated ln a very Inviting
position in an armchair, one almost
round rubber ball, aud last and best,
one box ot (presumably) chocolates.

ascended to the platform erected be*

Mr. Tolmie related for them tho

Miss Whitaker, In turn, brought the

with her generous praise of the
sportsmanship the olass had displayed
as a whole during tho oourse ot the
Initiation ceremonies. The Freshmen
learned that thoy were considered to
have made a decidedly good begin*

classes were looking to them to con*

by tho foot that thoy wore actually to

Dr. G* G. Sedgewick
Addresses Debaters
Public Speaking Receive*
On Monday, at three o'clock In Arts
100, a group ot students Interested tn
debating and public speaking met to
hear Dr. Sedgewick give his Ideas on
the necessity ot public speaking. The
aims and objects ot the Debating
Union were explained together with
the method by Which students oould
master it
Dr. Sedgewick said that he was Very
glad to encourage the Union In its
efforts to further publto speaking tn
general. Such efforts were particularly necessary In Canada where there
were too few men aud women competent to voice their Ideas In public.
Only ln rare Instances was the ability
to speak a God-given gift; to tbe great
majority the ability was attained after
hard work.
A good speaker, be declared, appealed to the intelligence. In order
to become one a person had to develop three characteristics. Dr. Sedgewick stated these to be, flrst, a well
furnished and trained mind, a capacity and confidence to utter the contents
of such a mind, and au ability to utter
lt sincerely.
He Instanced Disraeli's breakdown
in his maiden speech to the Commons
as caused by lack ot confidence which
could only be acquired by long practice. At the conclusion of his remarks Dr. Sedgewick was given a
warm ovation, and a vote ot thanks
was carried.
The President of the Debating
Unlou, Mr. Denis Murphy, then declared that applications to fill the
vacancies in the Union should be
addressed to himself and left ln the
letter rack. Tryouts for all applicants will take place thla coming
Monday at three o'clock la Arta 100.
Both men and women are Invited to
give a speech upholding or denouncing some subject, the speech not to be
longer than three mlnutos.
