anyone who violates it.
Academic Standard
We believe that the reputation and
influence of our University can best
'ie built up by maintaining a high
academic standard.
Therefore it is the policy of the
Students' Council to encourage a careful and serious attention to study.
It is advtrae to our policy that any
credits be given to students taking
part in college activities.
We believe that the establishment of
the credit system would seriously
lower our scholastic standing and tend
to professionalize our activities.
We advise any student, therefore, to
forego his participation in undergraduate activities if It will Imperil his
scholastic standing.
We believe that any student whose
academic record during the first term
is found to be unsatisfactory should
be asked to discontinue his attendance at the university and we will give
our full support to the university
authorities in carrying on this regu-
atlon,
Rules Outlined
By T. Wilkinson
First Alma Mater Meeting Held
On'Wednesday noon, the first mass
meeting of tho Alma Mater Society
tor this term, waa held in the Auditorium, A large turn-out of students
was c.n hand, comfortably seated upon the floor. Mr. Tommy Wilkinson
called the meeting to order, and commenced with a few Introductory remarks. This was followed by the
reading, by Miss Dorothy Brown, the
secretary, of the minutes of the last
meeting of the society, held on April
13th, 1926. Tommy Wilkinson again
took the floor and outlined the
changes in the constitution as drawn
UP for the session 1925-26. Particular
mention was made of the changes
due to our new place of abode. The
president urged the students to cooperate in a policy of construction
rather than destruction, showing the
necessity of keeping our "marble
halls," which have cost this province
SO much, In their present undented
state. Offenders in this respect were
promised dire and terrible punishment. The ruling forbidding the entering of buildings after hours, was
also emphasized. Mr. Wilkinson also
requested that those parking cars in
front of the Administration building
do so with as little noise as possible,
that those In the office might not be
disturbed.
At the conclusion of the above remarks, Mr. Tommy Taylor, President
of the Men's Undergrad. made several
Important announcements, Including
the Pep meeting to be put on Friday
noon, by Arts '28, and most Interesting of all, details for the Freshman
reception, to be held Friday evening,

BROCKTON  POINT.
Would-Be Actors
Suffer Torture
In Try-Outs
"I don't believe you yet," mutters
the would-be Players' Club star, as he
paces about the empty room. "I
DON'T BELIEVE YOU VBT!". He
thinks with sorrow of his momentary
enthusiasm and his former vision of
himself as a second Valentino, striding In triumph across the Auditorium
stage. Like dosens of others, he had
been led away by dreams of glory and
had bitten to the extent of paying
twenty-five cents to try out for the
Players' Club. "I don't believe you
yet," is right. His belief in everything has died and left a chilly void.
"Then what mad impulse?" he hisses,
thinking of his own mad Impulse and
hating Sir Harry with all his heart.
e       «       *       e       *
He meets the would-be Kate and
has a rehearsal. "Er-er. I—don't believe you—yet," he sings mechanically. "Perhaps that is the best way to
take It," she replies cheerfully. She
Is right. Perhaps it Is the best way
to take It; to go on with the business
and get It over. He summons up
courage. "Then — what — mad — lm-
purse," he rattles on, gaining confidence In spite of many stumbles.
Some parts make him shudder. "Was
anybody getting on better than me,
and consequently you? Ugh! "Ambition—It Is the last infirmity of noble
minds." At any rate he now has a
noble mind as far as dramatic ambition goes.   "— to find myself with
people who had not got on," she says.
"There are plenty of them," he replies, but with more of an air of relief than the "proper spirit" calls for.
... He tries the part over a couple
of times and Is left with a vague, confused turmoil In his brain, in which
a quarter of a million fat friends
dance around the funeral or his expensive religion.
e * e * e
A vague horror remains with hlra for
the few days he has left. Surreptitiously he creeps away from his fellow
men and reads a much-folded and dirty paper on which is his part. His
lips mumble his disbelief in Kate
and how he swaddled hei in luxury.
The Zero Hour comes all too soon.
Thank heavens, he does not have to
try out In the Auditorium. He lines
up outside A100 and hears his name
called. He fells he would rather be a
Chinaman who earns his living by being executed, than go on with the ordeal. . . . He finds himself Inside.
The University has missed nn opportunity by not advertising how big
Room ion Is. He is positive that, it
is  twice as  bit: as  the  Arena!
At Hie hack sit the Three Kales In!
the persons of the judges. He resolves |
to be good for the rest of his days if!
only he survives this. In the middle
of a boundless plain stand two chairs
and a table, which do not resemble
any furniture he has ever seen. He
throws an appealing glance at the
Terrible Three. Their eyes seem to
be as big as saucers, and are stretching out towards him! Details of his
past life appear before him; the time
when he was a Freshman and looked
down on the Prelims, and when he
was a Prelim, and looked down on
the entrance students.
He draws a deep breath. "I don't
believe you yet," he gasps. "Perhaps
that Is the best way to take It," says
his partner, calmly. He gathers confidence and goes ahead at a great
rate. Then, horrors! He forgets his
line! Gazing wildly round, he hears
a voice from Olympla say the first
two words, He has been saved by
the great ones themselves. He takes
up the line and goes on. He does not
know how he finishes, but somehow
does so and staggers out of the room
half dead.
He has had his twenty-five cents
worth!
CANADIAN RUGBY CLUB PLAYS
BIG GAME SATURDAY
Mayor Taylor to kiclcoff in first Intercollegiate Contest
to be played by University.
Having finished their training
schedule, Varsity's Canadian Rugby
team Is ready for the first U. B. C.
grid game, when they meet the College of Puget Sound warriors at Athletic Park tomorrow,
The Americans are fielding a particularly strong team, according tB>
Professor Seward, faculty advisor
and coach of the Tacomans, who was
In Vancouve." looking over the blue
and gold squad last week. Mr. Seward was for some years a member
of the University of California eleven,
and |s considered an authority on the
American game. He believes the
Canadian team weak In the line, but
with the return of Lever Bates and
Angle McPhee to the game, this weakness will be considerably offset. It
Is expected that U. B. G. will field a
team averaging one hundred and
ninety pounds per man, when Mayor
Taylor kicks off the ball tomorrow.
In tho backfleld B. C, will have two
outstanding men. These are "Andy"
Anderson, who will probably play
quarterback, and Harold Hall, considered one of tho best kickers in the
game, Anderson is an old high
school-mate of the Tesrau, and the
mighty 8hldler, whose prowess Is
well-known in the .North West eon-
forenco.
Tacoma will play such men as
Tatum, Swarts and Thronson, who
made such a great showing against
the U. S. S. Oaklahoma eleven soma
two weeks ago.
The entire east section of the
grandstand will be reserved tor U,
B. C. rooters and their friends. Student tickets can be obtained from all
members of the Canadian Rugby Club
and the plutocrats can obtain reserved
seats at Spaldlngs, Hastings Street.
The ball will be kicked off at 2.30 p.m. '
sharp.
Lively Program
(or Lit. Society
After the flying start of last week,
the Men's Literary Society has no
Intention of slacking up. Their program as arranged at present promises
a very lively and interesting year.
Inter-class debates will be a big
feature hi this program. They will
commence almost immediately, as applications from several classes have
already been received. These debates
will take place during noon hours, so
as not to Interfere with any timetable and thus ensure a maximum attendance. Further heightening the
enthusiasm, the long-lost inter-class
debating shield has been round. Thin
shield was last won by Arts '24 and
since then had mysteriously disappeared.
Debates with Victoria College and
the B. C. Dramatic School are being
arranged, a reply from Victoria being
now about due. A fuller announcement will be made shortly.
The Men's Oratorical Contest, a
great feaure of other years, will be
held either late In the fall or early In
the spring. This year the new auditorium will make this event even more
successful, as the handicaps In the
Fairview quarters were only too apparent.
Most of the Information concerning
the Men's Literary Society can be
found in the Student Handbook, on
the bottom half of page 38 lo he exact. As announced before, the Literary Society is now a closed organization, with a membership limited to
about fifty. Today, Friday, is the last
day for applications for memberships.
The full '.1st of members will probably be published In Tuesday's issue.
Great credit must be given to the
members of the Executive, namely,
Messrs. E. Dunn, S. Kobe, T. Morrison and J. Bridge and also to Mr.
Jack Shakespeare, the Debates Manager. Given the proper support Horn
all members, this year's program will
undoubtedly be the most successful In
the history of the Society.
OUTDOORS CLUB
Members of the Outdoors Club have
arranged a hike to limit- cabin on
Grouse Mountain, and will be pleased
to have any students Interested turn
out to eat eh the 8.20 North Vancouver
ferry Sunday morning. The programme for the day consists In building additions to the cabin and making
alterations rendered necessary by increasing   membership.
uBack To Fairview"
Campaign Suggested
Now Is the time for some congenita) Idiot to start a "Back to Fair-
view" Campaign, The arguments for
such n movement are several, First
of all, we all had stack room privileges In Fairview. We haven't them
here. Secondly, we must havo a
CAMPAIGN for something to give our
caution money to, so why not this
worthy object Thirdly, In Fairview
we could occasionally find a place to
study between lectures. Fourthly, In
Fairview, there were not so many restrictions and regulations. Fifthly, It
took less time to get, to lectures in
the mornings than It does now. There
are many other arguments, such as
tho proximity of "Ed's' 'and the
"Nurses' Home," which can be used to
appeal to the sentiment of the average   sophomore   and   Junior.     So   we
Offenders Face
Council Court
That the Students' Council intends
to deal seriously with any member ot
the student body found guilty of violating the rules of the Alma Mater
Society, was quickly brought to the
attention ot several freshmen Monday night who, It was reported, del-
lberately Ignored rulos for student,
conduct as set forth in the official
handbook.
R. D. Mackay, A. B. Gibson, J. N.
Manson, G. J. Manson, M. Legg, F.
Gross, A, Millar and G. Harper were
brought before the Council, and having duly confessed to charges laid
against them were sentenced according to the gravity of the offences
committed by them.
C. A. C. Yoland found guilty ot
using Inflammatory language at Saturday's initiation also received judgment of due severity.
The much discussed question of the
standing of the Education Class with
respect to the Alma Mater Society,
was brought up for consideration.
It was finally agreed that Students ot
Education may enjoy full undergraduate privileges of the Alma Mater Society on the payment of regular Alma
Mater fees.
Concerning the appropriation of
class fees, the Students' Council has
made a ruling, which gives the Men's
Undergraduate Society authority to
prohibit any class from collecting any
more money for class fees than Is
officially allotted by council. This
measure, It is hoped, will prevent the
undue increase of class fees, which
threatens to Increase hardships of
those who are students, making their
way through college.
The policy which the Students'
Council Intends to pursue this year
with regard to social life will not
differ materially with that which was
adopted last year. However, minor
changes will bo made as occasion demands.
The question of sending a team to
represent Varsity at, the W. C. I. C.
A. A. W. meet held at Winnipeg this
fall, was brought up for consideration.
Though a full representation cannot
be sent, ft Is hoped that one or two
men will go east.
The Canadian Rugby Club was
given permission to play the Puget
Sound team on Saturday.
A letter of thanks, acknowledging
condolences sent to the parents of
Charles Mlkiel ot Science 27, who
died this summer at Powell River,
was read by the secretary, and the
meeting adjourned.
throw out the suggestion for the CAMPAIGN  to  any enterprising student,
nnd offer as a campaign song. "We're
through with picks and shovels.
We want our shingle stain,
That's why we ask you to Join us
And carry our campaign.
Each day you can watch us groaning,
As our fees get more and more,
Just ask us where we are going,
And you'll hear the answering roar,

University Endowments
On looking through the calendars of other universities one is
compelled to contrast the number
of endowments and donations enjoyed by them with the comparative few possessed by our own.
These endowments and donations
are generally professorships, lectureships, fellowships, scholarships, exhibitions and prizes, and
were founded by people whose desire it was to make education a
more common possession. Tho
University of British Columbia,
although provided with some excellent scholarships, has as yet
had no professorships or lectureships founded by patrons.
It is to be remembered, however, that this university is in its
infancy. And a young university,
one, too, with "growing pains"
cannot expect to be well endowed.
One reason for this is that scholarships are not infrequently founded by members of a university
alumni. The members of our
alumni nre not yet "captains of
industry."
The University of Wisconsin
has recently taken an attitude —
which did not jjo unopposed — in
refusing, ns a state-supported in
stitution, to accept Imrstirics,
scholarships—any form of donation. This, most certainly, is not
the attitude of the University of
British Columbia. A clause in the
calendar dealing with this subject
draws attention to the fact that
the University is glad to accept
endowments. .Furthermore, a
praiseworthy suggestion is outlined whereby scholarships may
•be founded for particular districts.
By the foregoing it is apparent
that the University of British Columbia welcomes endowments
either from individuals or institutions. It is to bring this question
of founding scholarships before
citizens of British Colmnbin who
can in this way materially, yet
more than materially, assist not
students only, hut the universal
cause of education. The value of
endowments in any branch of research it is impossible to deny. It
is also certain that no one who has
thus furthered education has ever
had cause to regret his action.

Brilliant Students
Given Recognition
The following Is taken from a recent number of the Daily Callfornlan":
"Honor where honor Is due will
have a new application this semester
with the publication of the officers and
students' directory on October 1. Recognition' is to be given to students excelling in scholarship during the time
they are yet in college, for the directory is to have as a new section a
complete list of upper division honor
students.
«       a       a       a        •        a      *       *       a       •
"This compendium of brilliant students Is a step forward. Many are
those who have done work far above
the average who have received absolutely no recognition for it. It has
not been possible for every student
with an exceptional reoord to became
a member of Phi Beta Kappa, nor has
the distance betwen   those   awarded
"holarshlp keys and those who just
missed  such a reward always  been
great enough to Justify the gap which
has been placed betwen them.
"Larger premium upon scholarship
vltl undoubtedly result from this action, both because many people will
work to be placed upon the list and
because others will attempt to sustain
heir scholarship for the personal satisfaction to be derived from attaining membership In a preferred group.
And there's another nice thing about
It— when we take an "O & S" In hand
to look up the phone number of that
new acquaintance we will have an
aid in classifying him or her accord-

EDUCATION NOTES
A Class meeting was held Monday
noon, In A. 205, with President J.
Smith In the chair. The gathering
was called to discuss the paying of
Alma Mater fees. A hot discussion occurred—the prospective teachers
seeming to resent the fact that they
are treated as undergraduates without being granted undergraduate privileges. It was decided that the class
of Education '26 should be duly regarded as graduates, and on paying
the Alma Mater fees receive full undergraduate standing. The paying of
the fees Is to be a purely personal
matter.
Varsity firsts take on Westminster
United In a Pacific Coast Soccer
League flxture at Queen's Park on
Saturday. The team has a hard task
on hand, and needs every ounce ot
support It can get.
An Important meeting of the S.M.
U.S. will be held on Tuesday, October
13th, at 12 o'clock In Room 100, Applied Science Building. All Science
men out to this meeting.
October 7th, 1925.
The Editor of the Ubyssey.
Dear Sir:
There was a letter in the Ubyssey
of October the sixth, signed Justitla
Fiat, on the subject of class privileges, attempting (either wittingly or
unwittingly, I do not know) to create
faction in the U. B. C. between
freshmen and members of the upper
years. Not only has Justitla Flat
shown these to be (In his opinion)
opposing factors, but he has been disloyal to his own party (if we are divided) In siding with the freshmen
against the upper years. In addition
to these offences against the University, he has not had the courage to
sign his own name at the end of the
letter.
His vlewn are probably widely held
and very sound. We all know that
the plan for class privileges is not
altogether satisfactory, none better
than the Students' Council, which
would welcome constructive criticism,
from all members of the University,
particularly the freshmen, with whom
rests the forming of custom which
will be tradition in the future.
Mr. Fiat has failed to realise that
the only way we can form sound tradition is by co-operation and not by
discord. He has destroyed, In his
letter, an attempt (primitive we own,
and perhaps baslcly wrong) to begin good customs and has given us
faction. What he destroyed Is probably wrong, but what he has given
us, namely faction, is Infinitely worse.
The University has always been singularly free from faction, that is a
tradition which we brought with us
from Fairview, because it has realised
that Its strength lies in co-operation.
Justitla Fiat ,who must have written this letter In the Interests of the
University, cannot have realized what
harm he was doing. The Students'
Council, who welcome criticism,
would appreciate it, it he would use
the constructive method and discuss
his views with them.
It is possible that Justitla Flat is
not a member of the student body,
and Is therefore not guilty of all the
offences of which I have accused him;
but nevertheless the effect on tho
students is the same, because the
average student naturally jumps to
the conclusion, that the writer is a
member of the student body.
Yours truly,
E. BEATRIX CLEGG,
Arts '27.
LAUGH  WHILE YOU  LEARN
A California textbook writer submitted to the state department of
education a proposed textbook on
arithmetic containing a new type of
li struction which the guarantees will
get results. Instead of the old brain
twisters, he proposes that arithmetical problems be presented in breezy
style and about subjects with which
the student Is  famllar.
The following Is one of the proposed examples: "If Bob Taylor's
red mule Absalom consumes 17 barrels of air at each bray, and if he
brays 13 times a day, how much air
will be consumed during the month
of  April''    Please  include Sundays,"
There's nothing under the sun of
the twentieth century like "popularization," Starting as an advertising
wrinkle, the thing has passed through
the stage of a craze Into the realms
of a commercial necessity. Now education—the last outpos' of an otherwise sane   civilization—Is beseiged.
Psychologically speaking, the "popularization" of education may be quite
correct; but, without pausing to solve
the example, might one suggest that
the textbooks of the future may be
written, not by arithmeticians, grammarians and the like, but by the
editor of humorous magazines and
the originators of comic supplement
features.

CHEMISTRY SOCIITY
The Chemistry Society hold Us first
meeting on Tuesday noon, in Room
8 417. The subject ot the meeting
was to decide a suitable time for
meetings, and to discuss changes In
the constitution, The absence of
Pierce Selwood from the University
this session has necessitated the
election of another president. Ralph
Ball was chosen for the office. The
president suggested that the membership of the society be restricted to
students taking advanced courses In
chemistry. But lectures, similar to
those held last year, would be open
to all students interested In the
science and would alternate with
meetings for members only.

noon, October 8th in the Applied
Science Bldg.

who have taken or are taking two
courses In Biological subjects.

made by Tuesday, October 13th to the
Secretary. Announcements of meetings will be made later.
Dr. Saunders gave a lecture on
Marquis Wheat to a Biology Class, on
Wednesday. The only audible comment of a certain Titian-haired senior
was. "Don't you think Dr. Saunders
has the most wonderful eyes?"
LA CANADIENNE
La Canadlenne held the first meeting of the year at the home of Miss
Doris McKay, 10th Ave. West, on
Thursday evening. Nearly all the

As yet, no definite date has been
set for the Annual Prefects' Tea, but
It Is hoped that this will take place
•i the near future, when those rather
••-v-'nt-n looking Freshettes who still
haunt the corridors and Common
Room will be afforded the opportunity
of making friends with the more fortunate members ot Arts '29 who arrived at Varsity with half a class of
••lends to greet them. In the meantime the Women's Undergraduate Society would like Prefects who still
seem to have difficulty In locating
their Freshettes, to get in touch with
them, especially In the case of out-of-
town girls.
Swimming classes for women students will be hell each week from 5:30
to 8:30 on Mondays, and from 4 to 6
on Wednesdays. Beginners and advanced classes will be formed, and

OUR STRAW BALLOT
To date, the results from the straw
ballot are satisfying, although insufficient to form any adequate conception or student opinion. In order,
therefore, to give every student a
ehanee to express his opinion we are
reprinting the ballot, and keeping the
?olls open till 4.80 p.m. today, Friday,
'his Is positively the last date on
which votes will be taken. Please do
not cheat, We have already noticed
among the East Kootenay ballots no
less than three marked In the same
hand although an attempt was made
to disguise It by the spelling of Kootenay.   Results to date:
Vancouver Centre — Conservatives
leading, Liberals second.
Burrard — Conservatives leading;
(only six votes cast. All Conservative.).
East  Kootenay—Liberal   leading.
Vancouver South—Conservative.
Vote early but don't vote often.

Our Tactful Politician Says-
One thing one must admire about
this campaign, In tho the gentlemanly
way In which both parties refer to
each other. Mr. King says that, "Mr.
Meighen Is trotting out the old dead
horse he rode upon In 1921, aud has
the nerve to expect to win upon it."
The Toronto Telegram says that Mr.
King possesses "a government of opportunists held together by the principles of expediency and welded Into
organized inefllclency by the common
horror of inevitable defeat." Personally, w(.< ihink that both statements
are absolutely cocrect.

LES MISERABLES-2
Gaston Goes to Jail I
I am perfectly aware that the story
I am about to relate to you will strain
your credulity to the utmost, and that
you will probably judge it as a mere
foeble attempt to clear my once untarnished reputation. Yet, I maintain that I acted In all Innocence and
If Mamie had only behaved like u
sensible girl there would have been
no unpleasant aftermath.
It was late, but not very late, when
a party of us finished celebrating our
reunion in a fitting manner, and having bid each other good night for the
third or fourth time, departed for our
respective domiciles. I was a little
doubtful as to the best way to reach
my boarding house, as I had been
there tor the first time that afternoon. However, I- set out cheerfully,
heading in the general direction of
Twelfth Avenue.
I suppose my mind was ton full of
deep thoughts to take much notico
of my surroundings, but I have a faint
recollection of reaching my destination rather sooner than I expected.
After much peering I found that it
was the right number, so I went up
on the porch and turned the door
handle. The door was locked, and
the old lady hadn't given me a latch
key yet. Here was a pretty fix!
Wouldn't she be angry If I brought
her down to let me lu, especially
since the whole house seemed to be
wrapped In slumber.
After some rather futile turning
and twisting of the knob I became
annoyed. Hang ill Did she expect
me to wait out here all night? 1
knocked angrily. From above came
the sound of a window being raised,
and a sleepy voice exclaimed, "Is that
you, Mamie? You'll find the key
under the mat, and mind you don't
disturb your father." The window
closed again, and all was silence.
Well, I wasn't Mamie, and I didn't
know who the deuce Mamie was; but
the key was there. So within a
couple of minutes I was creeping
Bllantly up the stairs, and presently
stood on the dark upper landing.
It's funny how different these places
look at night. I could have sworn
that there was a carpet on the landing Instead of those bare boards. But
there was my room, the door opposite, showing up dimly white. I
opened it and walked In.
Now, it waB most unfortunate that
Mamie should suddenly have had
enough of her "Sheik" for one night,
and have come home in a huff. Yes,
It was most unfortunate. Five seconds would have made a great difference. It only took me two to realize
that It certainly wasn't my room, and
] another two to realize that it per-
1 haps wasn't my bearding house. lie
sides, Mamie seemed to be a very
timid and hysterical sort of fool,
'.screaming like that! I admit it la a
little startling to find a strange man
standing in the middle of one's room
at midnight; but she might have listened to my explanation. As if any
burglar in his senses would have
knocked at the door, and when discovered, have asked for the landlady!
After all, it wasn't my fault that
the street turned out to be Eleventh
Avenue Instead of Twelfth, and tho
houses were certainly very much
alike, The Vancouver police seem to
be an awfully suspicious bunch of
dunderheads, and Mamie's father was
rather a brute.
I missed three lectures on the opening day,—most annoying; but it is so
difficult In Vancouver to find friends
with sufficient money to bail one out!
—GASTON.
One of those freshmen is so dumb
he thinks the discus Is a debate.
"At last, I have come to myself,"
said the sailor, stepping out ot the
Hatchways.

WRITING HOME,

The sophomore writes homo for
money to buy a ticket to the Christmas plays, and does it so often that
his people think the Players' Club Is

The Junior writes home for money
to buy a fountain- pen with, also a

My Dear Wilkinson:

Manager of the Rldeau Basketball
team. It Is a letter of thanks to myself for arrangements for the Canadian Basketball Championship playoff. I feel that theBe kind words are
coming to you and your associates.
Having met you all when you were in
Edmonton I knew that the arrangements were safe if left In your hands
and accordingly I Interfered as little
as possible. I am sending this on to
you so that the honour may come to
whom the honour Is due.

"On behalf of our club I wish to
thank you for the excellent arrangements you made for the play-off for
the Dominion Basketball Championship. Our team returned as you
know victorious and every member is
loud In his praises of the splendid
arrangements and impartial officials.
In fact everything was most satisfactory. The reception by the Vancouver team and the citizens of Vancouver was all that could be desired. In
fact every arrangement from the time
they arrived until they left was excellent and splendidly carried out.
The treatment they received there
was in marked contrast to that which
they received In St. John, and the display of such fine sportsmanship as
shown all through the West has made
a marked impression on our whole
team.
Yours very truly,

Girls9 Track Club
To Elect President
The dlrl.i' Track promises to dove lop into so popular a section of
Athletics that girls (Freshettes r.ot
included), are urged to elect a competent, president for the Track Club.
Nominations must be signed by ten
persons and handed In to Alda Moffat. The election will take place on
Wednesday, noon.
The best runners will be chosen to
take part in the Track Meet to be
held this Fall, which offers as a
glorious prize the much-coveted
Chris. Spencer Cup. This, besides
the pleasure and benefit to be
derived from the sport, should Inspire every woman student to compete for a place upon the team. Freshettes especially are advised to join
the Track to carry off the many ribbons. More good runners are needed,
and it is felt that if the Freshettes
will enter Into earnest practise now,
Ihe University will boast of an unexcelled   relay   team  In future yearn.
Uses for the Ubyssey
The student body are fast learning
new uses for the Ubyssey. For one
thing, it can he used to wrap lunches
In, to clean shoes with, and to polish
windshields. Then enterprising students taka it down to the Botanical
Gardens and scatter copies all about
in order to spoil the appearance of
the only beautiful spot on the campus.
Two or three copies rolled up in a
hall, make an excellent football In the
men's common room, and It Is still a
pretty fair substitute for blotting
paper. Ingenious folding makes pretty
paper airplanes for little brother or
sister at home.    And,  finally, in that
one o'clock lecture ;   you  cun
always rend the darn thing.

New Touch Role
Fully Explained
For the benefit of Rugby Players,
a copy of the New Zealand Touch
Rule Is given below*
"The ball Is In touch when it, or a
player carrying It, touch or cross the
Touch Line. It shall then belong to
the side opposite to that last, touching It in the field of play, except when
a player carrying the ball is forced
Into touch by an opponent.
When It pitches in touch from a
kick, other than a penalty kick, from
beyond twenty-five yards of the bicker's goal line, the opposite side shall
ring It out as in (a) at a spot op-
> to the place where tho kicker was
when he kicked the ball. In all other
cases one of the side to whom the
all belongs shall bring it into play
at the spot where it went into touch
.y one of the following methods:—
(a) Throwing it out so as to alight
at right angles and at least Ave
yards from the touch line.
OR
(b) Scrummaging it at any spot at
right angles to the touch line
