Dances, limes and Vaudeville
Form Home-Coming Program
sKttti tanas mm m mm
mmmmsmems-tnmfmmsm
"A Home-Coming of Homecomings!" The entertainments on the programme for Home-Coming this year are extremely varied. They include a
Cp meeting, a theatre night, two rugby games, two baaketball games, a
nee, and a ohuroh service. This line-up of events is enough to doubt the
molt valiant, but hot the Orads! They will not depart this time, however,
With the Impression that Varsity has sadly degenerated, but on the other
hand will wish they were baok again and will come to the conclusion that
the "good old days ot Fairview" are hot to be compared with the present.
To start things oft. a Pep meeting wilt be held Friday noon in the Auditorium. The censors have passed all the acta, the sanction of Counoil has
.ftwfo obtained, and everybody Is looking forward to a wonderful time.
According to "Those who know," this Is going to be the ideal pep meeting,
and seating space will be at a premium, Friday evening, providing every*
one has sutBulently recovered from
the noon-hour joy feet, two basket*
ball games and a dance will be held
In the hew V, A, C, gym.
The programme will not be continued on Saturday until 19.80 p.m.,
when the Orads win hold a lunch at
the Hotel Georgia. This function is
olMed to the undergrads, and what
takes place there -will forever remain
mystery to them. At 3 p.m. everyone
will meet at Athletic Park to see Vers*
ity shove Victoria around ln a Canadian rugby gatte. Victory is practically assured for Varsity, but the
game will be well worth seeing,
Tha Mime evening at I p.tn., tho
annual Theatre Night will be held in
the Auditorium. Theatre nights are
UOw famous and this one will be no
exception to the rule. One of the
main features of the programme will
be the fills given .by each Faculty.
This is done in order that memories
Of to-gone days will be brought baok
to the (trade. The old yells and songs
Sill he reviewed and if tears are not
rought to the eyes of the Grads it
will not be the fault of the yell gangs.
The Grade need have no trepidation
jhbOttt attending the theatre this year,
, for the Frosh are going to be a minus
quantity. Their absence is due entirely to lack of seating accommodation and ls not as was thought at flrst
due to their bad manners.
The Students' Service for Homo-
Coming will be held Sunday, 7.80 p.m.,
at St. Marks Church, corner of 2nd
Ave. and Larch St. Rev. A. H. Sovereign who is delivering the sermon,
will take as his text "That Which
Changed. Not." Miss Kathleen Baird,
Arts "28 will be the soloist.
This year's programme will be
brought to a close on Monday, when
Varsity tackles Edmonton in the second   round   for  the   McKechnie   ('up.
S.CM. and International Club
Organize Questionaire
With a view to obtaining a concensus of student opinion on the subject
of war, a questionnaire is being circulated through the joint efforts of the
International Club and the S. C. M.
The public conference on "Education for Peace," which is being held
in Vancouver next Wednesday, in*
dudes In Its agenda a discussion of
"The Attitude of Youth toward War."
Many members of the faculties of
certain departments are co-operating
in this endeavour by permitting distribution of these questionnaires at
their lectures, Replies must be placed
in boxes situated at both ends of the
Arts BuiMjng and at the Cafeteria entrance. These boxes will be available
duly until I p.m. to-day. All those
who havo not received copies of the
questionnaire at their lectures are urged to call In at Auditorium 312 for one
before this evening.

At a special meeting held on Thursday noon, the Student's Council decided to carry one-third ot the thousand dollar guarantee to bring (he
University of Alberta to Vancouver
for a Wednesday and Saturday series
to be arranged by the University
Canadian Rugby Club, on the understanding that the flrst three hundred
dollars profit be turned over to the
visiting team.
The date for the games have notj
yet been decided. '
to Meet
Edmonton Stars
The Varsity MoKeohnle Cup rugby
team meet the Bdmonton all-stars at
Brockton Point on Monday, Thanks
giving Day, at 2.30 p.m., as the final
feature of ihe big Home Oomlng pro
gram.
The Albertans ore on their way now
and from all reports are the strongest
fifteen that the prairie olty has ever
got together. The ttwrn was strengthened considerably by the addition ot
"Stut" McLeod, former sensational
university school captain, And Bob
Bby, well known in coast rugby clr
oles, and with numerous other shining
lights, they should put up a good fight
against the University squad.
However, Coach Tyrwhltt and Shipper Phil Willis are confident that they
have rounded out the best team yet,
and one whioh should give the invaders a royal welcome. The team had
a snappy workout Wednesday afternoon, and particular attention was giv
en to getting the ball out of the scrum
and to the passing of the three-quarters. This practice put the finishing
touches to a fast and well balanced
team, and Varsity Is expected to put
up a fine exhibition on Monday and
show the fans a lot of action.
For several years tho Edmonton
Varsity English Rugby game has been
one of the big games of the season.
So far the U. B. C. has always been
victorious, but the prairie pigskin
chasers are sure that this year they
will be able to shake off the Jinx
which has pursued them In the previous series.
Aeriel Surveying
Is Subject of
Address
On Wednesday, at a meeting of the
Studont branch of the Engineering
Institute of Canada, Science men of
U. B. C. listened to a most Interesting address on "Aerial Surveying" by
C. L. Taggart, Dominion land surveyor.
He went on to show how, for instance, Canada Is seriously and systematically experimenting with aerial
•"•rveylng, and described a recent
aerial photography expedition ln which
he himself took part. This flight was
made last summer In the district of
Shushwap Lake, B. C. Two new monoplanes, equipped with excellent cameras and piloted by Captain Morphy
and Captain Burke, were used for the
work. All equipment was supplied by
the Royal Canadian Air Force.
The speaker announced that previous to these experimental flights, the
supposition was that accurate, practical surveying by air was impossible
in B. C. owing to the presence of numerous air currents. Mr. Taggart Is
nt/* able to state that there were no
grounds for this idea and that, providing (he weather conditions are
good, a plane rides easily and safely
st a uniform altitude of 15,000 feet.
Pictures taken by cameras attached
either to the nose or the floor of the
machine, are a clearer and more accurate means Of surveying than any
attempts made from the ground, Furthermore, there is to be found in a
photograph a wealth of detail that
would otherwise be almost Impossible
to obtain.
Thoughts on
Armistice
Ton years ago noxt Sunday, November 11, the Armistice was signed.
Every year since then this day has
been set apart to remember not tho
hour or victory, but the sacrifice of
those who gave their lives in the war,
It Is fitting that It should be so. The
events of the past ten years have
shown that the victories have suffered as much as the losers; whether
this is Just or unjust Is not being considered here. What we want to observe Is that the horror, waste, and
futility of war, when nations deliberately sacrifice their best, should be
brought home to everyone. It Armistice is properly commemorated year
by year without fall, this will be
achieved; and what is most important the next war may be prevented.
The University has a Special Interest In the Armistice viewed trom this
aspect. She gave all she could both
from her student body and her Faculty; and the ceremony held this
morning was to show she had not
forgotten her special sacrifice. This
should not be the end of student
duty in this respect; rather students
ahould evince their consciousness of
true Significance of Armistice Day by
lending their support to all such laudable movements as the all-day Peace
Conference being held at the First
Baptist Church next Wodesday.
STUDENTS' COUNCIL
PASSES BUDGETS
The discussion ot budgets was concluded at the Students' Council meet*
ing on Monday. Budgets of the Stage
Maintenance Committee; the Arts*
men's Undergraduate Sooiety, and the
Aggie Undergraduate Society were
presented and passed.
The Women's Basketball team will,
In future, appear at games "suitably
clad." At the request ot Miss Bollert,
it was found necessary to raise the
basketball budget to cover the additional cost of the knee-length bloomers now required.
It was decided that '150.00 be voted
at the last meeting for the purchase
of a motor for the Rowing Club be
paid In two instalments; $80 to be
paid now and $70 later. Two bills
were passed, one from the Roedde
Printing Company and one for a typewriter.
A motion for the acknowledgment
of $60 from the Pantuges for the
Thoth performance was carried. The
Thoth budgot for the term was presented and passed.
Mr. Baker, representing the Swimming Club, presented a proposal that
$50 be granted to the Club to send a
team to compete in the swimming
gala at Victoria. The Council was
unable to grant this additional expense in view of the fact that a team
was to be sent to Banff.
It was decided to hold a poppy day
Friday.
The loss of the Georgia Hotel Trophy was discussed. In the event the
cup was not regained the Council decided to take steps to replace lt.
Two hundred University crests were
ordered by the Council. The adoption
of a standard-type blazer for the University was discuBsed. The majority
favoured the blue and gold vertically-
striped blazer. It was decided to purchase six doson ties embodying the
same design.
It was decided to send an Bnglish
Rugby team to the Annual Invasion
at Victoria. In the event a Canadian
Rugby game could be arranged it was
to be represented. The Council expressed itself against supplying ankle
supports for players.
A committee, consisting of Mr. Mcdonald, Mr. Smith and Mr. Henderson
was appointed to Investigate ways and
means to Improve financial condlttous
for the coming year.
No Lsctttres Saturday >nd Monday

the following Monday, which is a legal
holiday. The administration offlced
also will be closed.

ing miles to see and many do. Tne'

same team as they have been using
this season so far. Strelght ls out
tor a while with a bad knee, and
Paulson will be missing: Mayers,
Henderson, MacDonald, McEweu and
Horton will carry the main share of
the burden with Plommer and Akerley
ready to step in and do their stuff.
The Varsity players are Intent on
winning this game as they want to
keep their record unblemished.
After all these hostilities the gore
will be swept away and men aud
maidens will sway to the rhythm of
Win Shllvock's band. Who has ever
been to one of these historic struggles
that can forget lt? Sedate grade
writhing ln the Intricacies of the Varsity Drag with charming Freshettes;
dignified Seniors Juggling with their
partners and everybody having a
wonderful time—such will be the happy scene for those who step out to the
games on Friday night.

All Day Peace Pact
Is Organized
*
Wednesday an All Day Peace Conference Is being held at the First Baptist Church and an interesting programme has been arranged by various
local organizations such as the Men's
University Club, the Women's University Club, the Hermes Lodge,' the
Boy Scouts and some fifteen other
societies,
Unquestionably the greatest problem confronting the world to-day is
the prevention of war. No other possible future event would so threaten
civilization as would another International conflict. And the time for
all to face the problem ls in the time
of peace. In the quiet of peace we
have an opportunity to investigate the
causes ot war and to eradicate or
control them. We have the chance to
become an enlightened public with a
sane attitude and policy.
The All Day Peace Conference ls an
attempt in this direction. Throughout
the day a series of Round Table Conferences open to the public will stimulate thought and discussion. From
10.00 a.m. to 11.00 a.m. representatives
of the most .actively interested organizations will speak on "Educating For
Peace—How We Do it." Another
group discussion dealing with "Problems of the Pacific" will take place between .11.00 and 12.15 and a competent leader will preside.
Lunch may be obtained at the
Church for a moderate sum.
After the meal hour, Prof. F. II.
Soward will speak on the Paris Peace
Pact, and so open the way to the first
afternoon deliberation; "International
Security--Canada's Part," from 2.30-
3,ir>, Between 3.45 and 5.00, "The
Altitude of the Rising Generation"
should be a lively topic.
Details of the evening programme
ore not yet available but It Is expected thnt n prominent speaker will contribute Illuminating thought on the
general  subject.
This All Day Peace Conference Is a
move to promote the publio weal-
hence the demand for public spirit.
Vancouver Is probably the flrst city In
Canada to make such an endeavor—
honce the call for leadership.

KLA-HOW-YAH!
Laat week we sent a word of welcome to our graduates
near and far. Thia week we can only express a hope that many
have responded to our invitation and are already in the city for
the week-end celebrations. To some the return will be a Home-
Coming In so far aa it means returning to familiar placea and renewing past acquaintanceships. To others Home-Coming will
no doubt mean something greater, for theae graduates are seeing
.the materialization of tha? which they atrived for and yet, in
their undergraduate days, waa not fulfilled. Their home was In
the Fairview shacks, but it waa their work, their enthusiasm, their
sacrifices, that made poaslble the eventual realisation of their
dream—the establishment of the University at Point Grey.
We are apt to take our new buildings and accompanying
oomforts too much for granted and to forget that had it not been
for the Grade, we might still be in Fairview. This week-end,
therefore, we trust, that those who have not already seen the
New university, will find not only that it luatiflea their expectations but also that within the new exterior the old Fairview spirit
lo still extant. w

In reply to the letters and your

like to publish the following Information.:
The University Is governed by the
Senate and the Board of Governors-,
not by the students. Certain rights of
self-government are delegated to the
students, but in no way does that
granting of privilege make the governing bodies any the less supreme. A
course in study, If they deem It desirable, is given In the University no

Last Monday a successful meeting
of the Club was held at the home of
M. B, H. Delavault, honory president.
After the adoption of the minutes,
Miss Beth Dow and Mr. Kirk presented a short humorous dialogue. Master
Rene Delavault read several of La
Fontaine's fables, which were much
appreciated.
The remaining time was passed en-
joyably in games and singing. Refreshments, served by Mme. Delavault,
concluded a most Interesting meeting.

The Varsity Christian Union was

by Mr. H. Etter, who graduated trom
this University in 1924. He then went
to China an active missionary work,
later returning via the Holy Land to
Louisville, Kentucky, where he took
a theological course. The subject of

Now, the Department of National
Defence at Ottawa Is the body of the
government that cares for the training of officers in Canada. It goes to
a great expense to train these officers.
Naturally lt must see to it that the
men are trained—that they* do qualify
as officers. In order to give the men
certificates, it must be sure that they
have undergone a certain amount of
training. Therefore it imposes certain minimum regulations which must
be compiled with by the men who
are taklnr; the course for certificates.
Yet the C. O. T. C. unit Is wholly
under the control of the governing
bodies of the University. The attitude
of the Department of National Defence Is that of willing co-operation
with the University in the Institution
and carrying-on of the work of the
C. O. T. C. It only requires that the
men taking the oourse ahall receive
the proper training to win a certificate.
The University may, If it wishes, add
to the course (as tt has done In the
Unlvorslty of Toronto), or It may
stress certain branches of the work
rather than others. Naturally also,
the Commanding Officer selected by
the University authorities (through
the Committee on Military Education),
must, to be rank and office by the Department, possess certain qualifications. No trouble need be anticipated on that soore, tho Committee would
not Belect an unqualified man.
Thus, the University Committee on
Military Education, was appointed by
the Senate, haa charge of the C, 0,
T. C. unit at the U. B. C, subjeot of
course to the approval of the Senate.

programme was provided, Including—
piano solos by Mlos Jean Fisher, Mr.

Fishman, and a soprano solo by Miss
Margaret Irvine. The members were
then delighted by a paper on the
"Gilbert and Sullivan Operas" by the
honorary president, Miss M. L. Bol
lert. Miss Bollert gave a character
sketch of the two great composers,
Sullivan, the musician, and Gilbert,
the author. Interesting views and
impressions of the operas were Illustrated by characteristic music from
"H. M. S. Pinafore" and "Patience."
This subject is of especial interest at
the present time, as the operas are
to be presented in Vancouver next
month by the D'Oyly Carte Players

true that the Society has expressed its

not expressed its disapproval of the

In this matter in particular. Why,
then, should he not accept the opportunity which the Senate has given the

the advisability of there being a representative of the Alma Mater Society on the C. O. T. C. Committee. In
fact we are thoroughly behind this
move, and wo think the Senate ls to
be congratulated on Its foresight and
good will In appointing a representative of the students to this committee,
We maintain, however, that since
the President of the A, M, 8, ls appointed as a atudent representative,
he should first determine to what extent the students are prepared to back
the C. 0, T. C and then act accordingly.
We feel that If such action were
taken It would tend to clear up misunderstanding between those for and
asainst the C. O. T. C. At the same
time It would make the student representative truly a representative of
student  opinion.
The next meeting of "Alouette" will
take place at the home ot the Honorary President, 406—1298, 10th Ave. W.,
on Tuesday, November 13th, commencing at 8 p.m.        ',.
The programme will consist of brief
talks on the tragedy, poetry, art, and
music of the seventeenth centur. Will
the members who have hot yet paid
their fees, kindly bring the required
fifty cents.

Mo Waiting in Line
jbiELECTMC/TY
AT the Grand Central station, New York, there are
* sometimes 600 to 800 persons waiting in line to
buy tickets. To provide ticket offices and sellers for
such rush periods would entail an expense which
would increase the cost of service enormously.
There is no waiting in line for electric light. Ve
must be prepared for the maximum demand.
Catering in this way to such demand is costly because
extra equipment, extra generators, transformers and
transmission line capacity mutt be provided. Such
service is just ts expensive as providing more ticket
tellers in the Grand Central station would be.

Remarks
I HAVE just finished- reading
Eugene O'Neill'a new play
"Strange Interlude/' It Is a
Work of a genious and ahould plaoe
the author aa the greatest of present day dramatists. There waa
one thing about the play whioh
makes U quite different from any
Slay that I have read before Mr.
>'Neil lias Used quite a new technique in drama by making the
actors apeak their thoughts to the
audience; and they come out quite
naturally, with no ridiculous
asides. These thoughts are uttered when the aotlon on the stage
is temporally demormant. For
instance when Nina, tho hofoine, is
sitting knitting and talking with
Sam, Charles, and Darrell, the
needles are stilled when the
thought ia spoken. The emphasis
of the play is layed on the mind
and thought of the actors rather
than on tho incidents and I rather
wonder how thia barrenness of in-
eident is going to be got over in
the stage production.
The number of Shakespeare's
readers haa just been considerably
widened by Dr. Geizo Ysubouchi's
translation of the complete plays
of the great dramatist.

MARCEL PROUST-An Estimation
ARCKL PROUST was the great master interpreter
"of silences, of nights, of the inexpressible." Ho
reached that goal which Flaubert, Uerlaino and
Rimbaud sought, and which Virginia Woolf seeks
when she says; "I want to write n novel about
silence, the things people do not say." These things
inexpressible, these long dim bistns whieh he bids
us gaze down, and most of all, these silences, are the chief characteristics of Proust's work.
His title to fame waa achieved by his one great novel "A la
Recherche du temps perdu" ("Remembrance of Things Past"). It is
really a great cycle of Beven books that runs into eight tomes. The
author began his first book in 1891 at the age of twenty and continued writing till the day of his death in November, 1922, The
oomplete French edition (not all the books having yet been translated into Bnglish) is:—
"Du C6te do Choz Swann" ("Swann's Way"), 1913.
"A l'Ombre des jeunes fllles en fleurs" ("Within A Budding
Grove"), 1918.
"Le C6te de Guermantes I" ("The Guermantes Way"), 1920.
"Le Cote* de Guermantes II" and "S'odome et Gomonhe I," 1921.
"Sodome et Gomohe II" ("Cities of the Plain"), 1922.
"Le Prisonniere," 1924.
"Albertine Disparue," 1926.
"Le Temps Retrouve," 1927.
Proust's novel is not a narrative
in the ordinary sense, but resembles more a great symphonic structure. For Proust v»*as primarily
a symbolist and had all the symbolist's pre-ocoupation with musical effects. Throughout the hero's
career the tempo of the piece varies to correspond with the changing years. Like Joyce does,
Proust varies the texture of his
narrative to represent the varying
times of day and the varying
states of mind, but on the scale
of a life-time and not merely in
a day as Joyce. Proust follows
the same paths as Bergson in trying to understand the audible and
inaudible harmony of the world;
so he attaches tremendous importance to memory, '' The Muses
are the daughters of memory.
There is no art without remembrance." And Proust, by memory,
does not mean the conscious process of recalling things, but the
unconscious involuntary recovery
through interplay of sensations,
of the world, hidden away in the
dim recesses of our minds,    lie is
in accord with Bergson, too, in stressing the involuntarines, of
memory, "that terrible recreative power of memory." And it in because of this that Proust has heen able to revolutionize the avt of
tlie novelist. He can linger for many pages over one tiny incident
whieh may have lasted two minutes and in half a page he may travel
the duration of years. As it was with Sterne so with Proust, mathematical time has no meaning.
Proust's novel is all the greater monument because he wrote
under the unusual disadvantage of never really having written to be
read. It is a bold and self-dependant work. Proust wns a fairly
wealthy man and consequently was quite independent of the publishers. The result is the book is produced in absolute indifference to
popular standards and commercial expediences.
In November, 1913, "Du C6te de chez Swann" ("Swann's
Way") was published. In this book Proust with great cleverness
introduces every strand of the plot, every important character and
philosophical theme. "Swann's Way," if it can be compared to any
other book, perhaps compares most easily to Henry James' "A Small
Boy," but even this is simple and concise compared with Proust's
novel.
Swann is a mysterious man that Proust has raised out of the
vague impressions of his childhood: "To me, he seemed such a
wonderful being that any one of my acquaintances should know him
also, and that in the daily round of life they should chance to meet
him was indeed marvellous. And one time my mother in recounting at dinner, as she always did, the events of the day, by the simple
remark: "liy the Way, guess whom 1 met at the "Trois Quartiers"
at the umbrella counter: Hwnnn," opened for me a mysterious* flower
in the midst of n dry tale. What a rapturous thrill tinifed with sad-
iicnm it gave me to know that Hwnnn, projecting his supernatural
body in the crowd had been buying hii umbrella."
This passnge is typical of {'roust's method and style. He is
vastly interested in the possibilities of the common-place, and he will
linger for pages over some minute incident of his childhood filling it
with tremendous possibilities. It is in n world like this that Proust
lives in nnd writes of.
His second book "A l'Ombre des jonnes fllles en fleurs," ("Within A Budding Grave") was to appear soon after "Swann's Way,"
hut the war retarded his work and it was not until 1919 that it
appeared. This book, like the first, is completely introspective and is
one long reverie of his childhood and youth, and one begins to wonder
if Proust is ever going to wake up. Bo far, only the subjective aida
of Proust appears.
"Le Cote* des Guermantes" ("The Guermantes Way") and
"Sodomo et Gomorrhe" ("Cities of the Plain") followed in quick
succession. It Is in these books that we see the other side of Proust.
not Proust the dreamer, the master of self-analysis, but Proust tha
moralist. We are no longer submerged in the reveries of adolescence
but wo gaze at the world .without. There ure a series of complex
social scenes, vitalized and melodramatic, The Mysterious Swann still
stalks through the story and we meet the Verdurins, at whose home
Swann first met Odette, and the d6elass6o Mme. do Villeparises,
"The Guermantes Way" is a story of the world and Worldly people.
We enter the select world of society with Proust believing it to ba
true, only to find it one huge masquerade. Proust discovers the
values; of society are an imposture and he shows us the utter worth*
lessness of all its snobbery, meaness and worldiness. Mme. de Guermantes, Odette, Charles, Mme. de Villeparises. having set them up
as statues of their sooial world, he brings them crashing down with
the zeal of an iconoclast.
In 1922 Proust died, leaving three volumes still unpublished.
"La Prisonniere," "Albertine disparue," and "Le Temps Retrouve."
The first of these was more or less ready for the press at the author's
death.   The last two will be read
The Beggar
Reject the loneliness of Truth for evert
Nor cast the World away;
To glory in a faith without endeavour
Were to lose every day.
We should not know the joy that sometimes reaches
A heart that never sings;
But sinking dumbly in a world that teaches >.
A splendid lift of wings,
We should forget the busy in the lonely,—
And the lonely disappears . . .
We should not know the sympathy, but\only
The vanity of tears.
Truth may be silent, but he haunts no places
The world at large ignores,
Behold him—daring suppliant to our facc$~^~
The Beggar at our doors.
Ho
lie
rather to find how the story,ends
than as good examples of the author's work, yet, in spite oi^very-»
thing they are wonderfully complete. Proust said a short time before he died that he needed but
three more years to complete hja
work. "Three years, only three
years morel But in three years,
as people say of the dead, I shall
be eating the roots of the dandelions ..." But in spite of the
fact that it was unfinished, hit
novel is a marvellously complete
. work. As one reviewer has said,
"His book is the cinematograph
of French life from 1870 till 1W4.
But it is more than that (*dr you
can extract from those memories
excellent essays on music, painting, architecture, literature, nat-
ural sciences, mechanics, military
tactics, history, aesthetics); it is
the "Summa" of a "fin de snide."
This curious subjective world
which Proust erects for us is always in a continual state of flux.
The characters like Mme, Wille-
pnrisis, the .scenes like the. Bois do
ami in his age, are all fluctuating.
the paradox of the perpetual im-
>giie as seen in his childhood
is obsessed, like Bergson, by
perceptible change of things.
One is struck by the utter lack of stoicism in Proast; and it
seems as if his genius consisted in the morbidness of his temperament
and his sickness of body and soul. Consequently, one notices in his
work at times a morbid attraction of vice for vice's sake and a
curiously deliberate self-torture. As Edmund Wilson reviewing him
in the "New Republic" says: "The man whom he has depicted, whose
moral defeat is the theme of the story, could never have had the
strength of this strange exaltation of art, so utterly divorced from
every other source of human joy, which retrieves the moral defeat
and which burns in these last pages; could never, in fact, have written the book. The person whom Proust hus omitted was one of the
most powerful minds of our time, and one of the great writers of
the world."
So, when we read his book, we become aware of Proust's bitter
judgment against himself. For we gee how he created, almost systematically, a character to represent only the weakest side of him.
In fact all his characters seem to be suffering from some sort of unsatisfied longing or disappointed hope. They are all sick with some
form of the ideal. Legrandin wantn to know the Guermantes; Vin*
teuil is wounded in his love for his daughter; Swann identifies his
passion for Odette with all the neglected artistic ambition* which
lie has always desired to pursue,
Of oourse we must remember thnt Proust was a sick man. He
was a martyr lo asthma and lived since 1910 in his room, rarely going
out. "That room," he says, "in which my mind, forcing itself for
hours ,m end to leave its moorings, to elongate itself upwards so as
to take on the exact shape of the room, and to reach to the summit
of that monstrous funnel, had passed so many anxious nights while
my body lay stretched out in bed, my eyes storing upwards, my ears
straining, my nostrils sniffing uneasily, and my lieiu't beating; until
custom had changed the colour of the curtains, made the clock keep
quite, brought an expression of pity to the cruel, slanting face of the
glass, disguised or even completely dispelled the scent of flowering
grasses, nnd distinctly reduced the apparent loftiness of the ceiling."

LITERARY SUPPLEMENT' TO THE UBYSSEY

"Ubyssey"
Literary Editor:—Laurence Meredith
Issued whenever the Muse visits the University of
British Columbia.
THE GLORY OF THE IMPERFECT
"Beautiful things," said Pluto, "tuv rare as they uro difficult,"
but the very struggle to express beauty in a tangiblo form, whieh is
the primary aim of tho artist, carried with it an intrinsic justification.
It Is only through struggle, through an oh most determination to
}>©netrate the illusion of r««lity and discover the ideal whioh underlies
t, that the artist, using tho term in its widest sense, creates the
medium through which his conception of beauty is conveyed.
As immature students, we cannot protend to preaent finished
artistry nor even outstanding merit in this summary indication of
our literary achievement. We make frank confession of our shortcomings, but it ia nevertheless without apology that vte present our
work, It ia not for ua to judge whether we have succeeded or failed
In what is for ua a serious attempt to emphasize u somewhat neglected
Nwpeot of college journalism. The importance of the Literary Supplement lies not in its actual content, but in the fact that it represents a sincere effort on the part of a few students to realize the
value of self-expression.

DILETTANTISM
We lind, to-day, two very strong schools of thought among
modern educators, Ou the one hand are those who would encourage
g broad carriculum on the grounds thnt it broadens tho individual's
outlook on life, and raises the standard of intelligence; on the other
*, are the advocators of specialization, who emphasize vocational train
ing and wou|d place the student in a technical school as soon as the
stlge of primary education is over.
There is much to be said for both sides. No doubt the variety of
modern education tends towards a scattered dilettantism; but then
dilettantism prevents an entire want of cultivation and stimulates a
' certain taste for learning. But this is an age of the technition, when
only he, who has a thorough mastery of his profession can hope to
Succeed, In the old days when higher education was open only to
the privileged few, dilettantism was an asset rather than a detriment,
v but in these days of tremendous competition only the man who has
a thorough and complete knowledge of his work oan hope to succeed.
Among the dilettanti there is a tendency to easy contentment
and a lack of perfectibility. The work is inclined to be characterless,
and ia never original. The dilettanti follows the lead of time rather
than leads and so could never be a leader. He is, in short, a parasite,
Who lives on the ideas of others for his own satisfaction and aggrandisement. He can never be an artist—and I use this in the sense of
one who creates and contributes to his calling, no matter what it is,
something to its advancement—he can never be an artist like tho
man who has devoted all his energies along one channel.
There is a danger in spreading oneself. One's energies should
be directed into one channel rather than into several. A man may be
an accomplished scientist and an accomplished musician at the same
time but he cannot advance far. One thing is bound to suffer and
generally both. Let him, by all moans, be an artist in one and have
the other for a hobby, to dabble in it as a recreation, and reserve
and direct all his energy, which in the average mortal is only too
little, to his art, his life work.
The cry of some people to-day is "Education I'm- Education's
sake," "Culture for Culture's sake," and what not. Hut it always
reminds me of a man I know who lias a passion for collecting all
sorts of fishing rods and gear and guns, not for use hut puii'ly for
the sensuous pleasure of seeing and fondling Ihein. What use they
were to him [ oould never see, as a gun, unless it is used, is iit
for nothing but scrap iron and firewood.
So, too, there are innumerable students who come to University
to "get" an education, which they find on graduation to be nothing
but so much scrap-iron and dead wood, which is quite inapplicable
to their work and has to be thrown overboard. Tlie average freshman has a totally wrong idea of the function of tlie University. To
him it is nothing but a glorified high school where lie continues his
High School carriculum. This idea, unfortunately, is encouraged
by the very breadth of the carriculum of the first two years, which is
necessitated by the deficiency of gounding in secondary education.
To the student intending to continue through University the
High School should be the period of dilettantism in his life when his
education can be broad but, well grounded. By the time he matriculates he should have a fair idea of what profession he intends to
devote his life. Thus when he enters the University he should be
prepared to direct all his energies nlong his particular line, leaving
any other courses he must take as a relaxation. That does not mean
that he should neglect his outside courses, for the over-specialized
man is almost invariably a pedant. If the student considers the University in the light of a finishing school he will be sadly disappointed,
for the University course is but a framework which takes more than
one life-time to shingle. Tho reason so many outsiders look askance
at the University ir that they see only too well this growing idea of
the University as a finishing school.
At the present time the student, on entering the University, has
from one to two years to weigh dilettantism and specialization in the
scales. Let him consider well and remember the old adage "Jack of
all trades, master of none."
"You remember, I suppose, my telling you of the little Chinaman Ah
Jim," tho speaker said as he settled
himself comfortably. "Well, by a
curious coincidence I met him again
this summer. I cannot say that the
thought ot him was ever really far1
from my mind. It was always there
hovering in the background, rising to
thu foreground at times and prompting
me to go and see him again and nnd
out the full details of the story of his
lite and that of his son which was so
Inextricably bound up with his. But
1 kept putting It off and never went.
In spite or all that, I cannot tell you
how surprised I was to meet him this
summer, and up at the Cannery of all
places.
1 had arrived there lu the evening
but It was not till the next morning
that I mot him, bumped up to him in
the same manner as i did on Gamble
Street, that rainy January night seemingly so long ago. It was he who
recognised me and spoke first this
time. He was as quiet and demure
as he used to be, and not at all surprised, for, as he told mo later, he had
seen me get off the boat the evening
before. He was the same little old
ageless Buddha without a place on his
face for another wrinkle to grow. At
first I couldn't believe My eyes, but
his grin and warm handclasp convinced me.
Sitting on the edge of the wharf
swinging his little legs to and fro he
leaned towards me with an air of
mysterious confidence. "My son, he
here," with a nod in the direction of
the China House. "Your son? What!
But I thought he was dead." With an
exultant little grin Ah Jim shook his
head.   "No, he here, I show you him."
My romantic visions of Ah Jim's
tragic past went crumbling and I
own that I felt a sense of disappointment in the fact that Ah Jim's son
was still living, in spite of the little
man's jubilation. Was all that he had
hinted and told me then but a story
told to while away a tedious hour?
And I felt angry both with Ah Jim anti
myself to think that all thoBe emotions I had experienced at the time I
heard his tale in his little shop, and
nfterwards when I turned It over in
my mind, were spent on something
that didn't exist, a mirage, a Action
tn the Imagination of a Chink! Ah
Jim prattled on, but I did not hear
him or want to, so taken up was I
In what I had Just heard. However,
I saw that he wanted me to meet his
son and considering the number of
times I hud tried to picture his form
tn my mind I felt that at least Ah
Jim owed me this.
So off he went down the wharf towards the China House, Ah Jim In
front stumbling along as usual. Wo
reached the old building and entered
a large bare entrance room pugnant
with that Indescribable oriental odour
which reminded me strongly, with a
twinge, of Ah Jim's little front office,
gloomy and Ill-lit, down in Vancouver
Chinatown where I had flrst heard ol'
the existence of his son There were
fifteen or twenty Chinamen In the
room, Home at two different tables
playing some sort of gambling game
with those domino-llkc bricks; others
sitting about in \nrlous attitudes reading ie. wspapers; and one man. almost
as old as Ah Jim I thought, sitting In
a comer half asleep and smoking a
very long opium pipe.
Hut I was suddenly recalled from all
this by Ah Jim calling In a very high
squeaky voice for Kee. Kee. . . So
that waa the son's name. It was funny
I had never heard of it before, now I
came to think of it. ln spite of the
fact we had talked of him ao much
Ah Jim had never told me his name.
He had always referred to him as,
my son, and lt had never occurrod to
me to ask his name. After calling
Kee several times again, a door opened
at the end of the room and somebody
came In.
It was dark at that, end so I could
not distinguish the person; but as he
came down the room I saw It was a
young man a little above medium
height, rather tall for the average
Chinaman, and very slight. His face
wns very pate and almost waxen ln
texture. It was not a healthy face.
His eyes, which were black and large,
were very far apart over which drooped two heavy, slightly bulbous lids.
Hla mouth was Inclined to be small
and the lips we/e well-formed, His
hair, which grew from a point fairly
low down on his forehead nnd made
two beautiful curves back and down
lo his temples, was brushed straight
back. But It was his face which
struck me most. There was something
about It which would make the casual
observer look a second time. It was
sn Indescribable expression. Perhaps
It might be explained by a look of
weary aloofness and disillusionment,
It was at this point that. I began to
wonder If there might not have been
something In Ah Jim's story after all.
He walked up the room droophig
slightly  at  the  shoulders,  his  arms,
which were long, hanging by his side.
His hands were pale and showed no
sign of toil, his fingers were long and
tapering like most Chinamen's but
were so well groomed that they resembled a woman's rather than a
man's. He was dressed in the usual
pyjamas, grey trousers and a black
silk coat longer than is customary in
this country, and reaching almost to
his knees.   So this waa Kee.
Ah Jim hurried up to him in a bustling Ingratiating manner that an old
nurse might adopt to a young man
whom she had nursed aa a baby. He
spoke to him in Chinese, evidently ex*
plaining my presence. Kee then came
forward gave me a slight bow and
said: "Hello. Me spoakee no King*
lish." The words startled me, not
by their very suddenness but by the
extreme lowness of their pitch. He
stood there tor a minute, and 1, feel*
ing slightly embarrassed at not being
able to reply to him, half turned to
Ah Jim. "He come to this country
two months ago," said Ah Jim, gaa*
Ing alternately with each word at
both of us. "He not speakee Bnglish
now." Being rather at loss 1 men*
tioned he must be glad to have his
son with him and said good-bye.
But ae 1 went away I was not angry
with Ah Jim any longer, and all my
feelings were aroused again for that
romantic pair whose story I felt I
should soon hear, But 1 did not have
a chance to broach the subject to Ah
Jim till nearly a week later.
it was a day that he-was not working and I saw him sitting hunched up
on a pile of nets out on the wharf.
I went up to him and Bat down opposite him so that 1 oould watch his
race. I asked him why he had told
me his son was dead. It appears that
he thought he was, until six months
before when he got a letter trom
Singapore. So Ah Jim sold his laundry business and sent the money for
Kee's fare to Vancouver. That was
the explanation, then of his presence
at the cannery and not In his little
shop In Vancouver. But to realise the
overwhelming joyousness of the reunion you must know of the events
leading up to lt.
Ah Jim was born and married in
Canton. When Kee, their only child
was three years old, Ah Jim's wife
died aud he was left wtth Kee to
bring up. So these two, from this time
on, were inseparable. But Ah Jim
grew tired of Canton. Por several
years he worked ou a trading Junk
running in the Yellow Sea, the little
Kee always by his side; but he grew
tired of sea life and went to a rubber
plantation In Cochin. From their he
went to Sumatra and wandering for
years among the islands till Kee was
sixteen when he went to Batavla and
opened a restaurant. Here Kee fell
ln love. It waa with the daughter or
a Chinese silk merchant who had married a Burmese woman and was slowly building up a fortune rrom his trade.
In the eyes of the merchant no match
for his daughter eou,ld have been less
desirable, since Kee was the penniless
son of a poor restaurant keeper. But
curiously enough Ibe pair were married, How the merclu-nt was prevailed upon to conneiit 1 have often wondered.
After two months of married life
in Halavia, Kee was sent on a business
trip by hla father-in-law to Soura-
baya. That was the last Ah Jim
saw of him. The merchant came to
him one day In his restaurant to tell
him Kee was dead, killed by a Swede
with whom he had had an argument.
The Swede had fled, the merchant
said, and had taken a boat for Hong
Kong. To Ah Jim the very breath of
his sou) had gone with the news of
Kee's death. The fact that Kee's wire
married again a month later did not
seem to worry him. He believed that
Kee had gone out or his life for ever.
As the days past, Ah Jim's mind became Ailed with the thought of revenge till lt came to the point that he
sold his restaurant and went up to
Hong Kong ln search of the Swede.
At Hong Kong he met a man who had
once been to Vancouver who told him
many Swedes lived In that far-away
city, so Ah Jim borrowed the money
and sailed from Hong Kong.
"I velly roollsh," said Ah Jim with
a bitter smile, "I believe too easily
merchant men and Hong Kong man.
I velly foolish."
And bo Ah Jim started on hla mad
chase across the world after an Imaginary Swede, the murderer of his
son. In Vancouver he remained waiting and watching for ten years.
As to how Kee came back to life,
or whether ho ever died at all Is another tale In Itself. Whether he did It
Intentionally or not 1 do not know,
but Ah Jim omitted to tell me this at
the time, It took me the entire summer to extract the whole painful story
from Ah Jim and even then, he said
he couldn't ba sure of all the facts,
Kee was never anxious to talk of It.
So I realised that that chapter at
least  was  closed   for me until such
An Incident
Already the two friends could see
some lights as they approached the
village.
"That is Cotrachenl," said one. ,
"Yob, at last we have arrived. We
have the Oood Cod to thank for UI"
replied his companion, a short, gloomy
man with a swollen nose.
The other did hot reply. He con*
tlnued walking with his eyes oh Ihe
road, glancing every few steps at tho
lights ln Cotrachenl as if to measure
how far away was their destination.
What a man he was! Like a wild
man from the mountains, with a great
moustache lost in a hard, blaok bear4>
which left only his eyes and cheekbones visible, On hit baok waa a
bundle which contained some old
clothes, a change of underllnen and a
pair, of boots—and at his breast.
wrapped 4n a red handkerchief hla
mother had given him, were his certificate of baptism, a luoky piece and a
few soiled bank-notes—all his worldly
goods.
Soon they had reached the village.
On all sides rose high mountains with
white crowns that glistened like silver, and between them, twisting and
curling through the valley, swept the
great grey Danube Into the twilight
in tbe market-place where there waa
a big crowd shouting and laughing,
they stopped,
"Friend* tell us, where Is there aa
Inn here?" asked the big man, addressing one of the villagers.
"Then you are a stranger?"
"Yes, I and my friend, we are
strangers. His name is Miclosh. We
have come from lossy."
"What is your name?"
"Papushka."
"OoodI" replied the villager. "Up
this road ls the Inn. It stauda by itself.   May Qod keep you I"
The Inn stood isolated in the middle
of a withered garden/separated from
the other houses about the marketplace.
It was an Old house; its veranda
was both high and broad and had bit
pillars. But they were dirty and falling into decay. The root hod never
been repaired and it was green wilh
moss and weeds. In front of tha.
house stood two beautiful lime-tree*
throwing out their shade, and smoke
rose slowly front the chimney.
Thoy stood for a moment in silenoe.
Faintly came the sound ot lapping
water, dogs barking la the village and
a flock of geese squawkiug; sometimes a human voice shouting or
laughing , and above, as If resting on
the mouutain-tops, the moon gliding
amongst the stars.
They entered the tap-room where a
good many men were drinking, While
two sleepy gypsies, one with a left*
handed violin and one with a slther,
were playing at random in a corner.
"Where is your mistress?" asked
Papushka of a boy.
"In the kitchen."
Papushka scowled,
"Curses on you! Why Is It so warm
ln here? Can one bake on a night like
this?" and he strode to tho kitchen.
It was very clean and the smell was
unlike the tap-room. Here was a smell
of new bread. Madame Dinu was making bread for her customers.
"Well met Mistress!" shouted Papushka, und Miclosh giggled. "Yea,
yes! Well met! Well met!" There
was no doubt he admired her comely
features,
"Have you dinner for us mndame?"
asked Papushka,
She eyed them askance for a
moment, smiling faintly.
"Yes!"   Bhe   rapped   out   suddenly
and vanished into the back-yard.
*     *       *
Later that night while Papushka
and Miclosh were sitting on the porch
smoking, a man appeared suddenly
out of the tap-room and without a
word seated himself by them.
"Did you know that Cara-Nara was
here?" he asked politely.
"Cara-Nara!"
"Yes, they very nearly caught htm
in the Smulca mountains, but the
rogue escaped. He has murdered
three people here."
Fear gripped Miclosh. He turned
pale at the thought of that terrible
man, but Papushka shrugged his
shoulders,
"Who is this Cara-Nara? Perhaps I
am   he!     I   change   my   name  and
wander wherever I wish and when
the spirit desires.   And why not?"

times as I could get the whole story
from Kee himself. Kee, that mysterious Kee when I think back on him
now, so different from the father. Yet
he was bound to him by a bond that
seemed stronger than mere parenthood.
1 shall never forget the last time
I saw them. What a pair they made,
standing together on the wharf watching the boat I was on pulling out.
Ah Jim's little wliened figure was In
such strange contrast to Kee, who
stood there tall and protectively with
his arm drooped over Ah Jim's narrow shoulders. And knowing their
story I realized that at least there
were two contented souls in the world,
happy In their reunion. MW-JWPfT'

VERSE
SPECULATION
The thoughts we think or dimly sense—
The fleeting thoughts of fleeting youth—
So delicate, yet so intense,
But still, defying word of mouth—
The thoughts which youth can not express—
Vague aspirations and desires—
Soul's exaltation, soul's distress—
Young ambition's smouldering fires—
Love of beauty—thrill of being—
Dream of future—thirst for knowledge-
Friendship's ardour—childhood's freeing—
Fenced in with dumbness like a hedge,
These things—these things van we ever
Set down in words when once they're gone?
Even feel once more, or never
Shall we sense them later ont
Youth's first fire and inspiration—
The newness and the dazed surmise—
Soon will pass and all creation
Be gazed on with more hardened eyes.
Will then the senses become dulled,
The plastic mind stiff, set and dry?
WHl youth's decisions be annulled
To heed convention's stupid cryf
And is life coarser> commonplace t
Are men's words but glibe and shallow
Symbols of a lingering trace
Of unnuttered thoughts lain fallow
Since in silence youth conceived them?
But symbols from a reservoir >
Diluted—this a strategem
By which alone men can conspire
To strain them through the vocal sieve—
Inflated symbols, warped and bent,
That inadequate voice do give
to the thoughts ihey represent?
Life's wonder and life's mystery—
What thinks maturity of this?
Is all one's life a gristery
That grinds in self-complacent bliss?
Or is it that the mind and soul
A richer understanding gain?
New powers for fuller role
Unlock new chambers of the brain?
This incoherent chaos may
Like some broken mercury bead
Become one mass, and so one day
Be clearly registered to read.
ONLY MEMORIES
There are no dreams that, smiling, we remember
As those between our dawning and our day—
June awed by admonitions of December!
December laughing down the eyes of May!
Thoughts of romance 'that linger on and smoulder,
In flame at last with precedents, meseems!
All Ihat is left:' at hast, as we grow oldir.
There are no dreams.
THE VOICE OF THE MOUNTAIN
(From the German of Heine.)
Slowly through the mountain pass
A horseman rides alone:
"Who can tell if I go to a loved one's arms
Or to a grave unknown?''
Came the answering moan-.
"To a grave unknown,"
And further rides the horseman
With arrow in his breast:
"But if I must go to the grave so soon—
Perhaps in the grave is rcst\"
The echo round him pressed;
"In the grave is rest!"
The horsemaH journeys full of care
A tear stands in his eye:
"Only in death is then rest for mc,
It is well that i should die."
The echo came close by,
"That I should die!"

No blur-bright blade have I to hand
Though other men ply swords and shares
To guard and till a gold-green land.
Though my brain furnace nigh tig flares

Nor share their strength, nor catch their zest;
But bowed in doublings and despairs   .
My weary heart frets out my breast.
FADED LADY
Pity late Autumn, with her tarnished gold
And flaunting red of leaves, for she is old.
Her splendid days of rich maturity
Have passed with flying banners, gay and bold;
And Autumn, like an empty, littered, street
Down which, an hour ago, a pageant rolled,
Dreams in thin sunlight, with futility;
Deserted, haggard, echoing of feet
New silent; with forgotten trifles strewn.
So Autumn, with her broken dreams of June,
Soon she will put aside her futile wiles,
Her mirthless simper ings and painted smiles;
No more the russet withering vines will cling
To barren walls that knew the wealth of Spring;
At last in settled sadness she will fall,
Like an old woman, huddling in her shawl
Of warm thick acrid smoke from burning leaves,-
"Vis only by her eyes yon know she grieves.

Oh, the bowmen of Chi
They were picked, every man,
For their hearts, hot and high,
Yet obeyed the Great Khan.
When a tiger out-ran
How their arrows would fly
Like the ribs of a fan
To his heart, to his eye,
Now our hearts are but cold,
All our mirth under ban,
Yet the tale must be told
How they foiled every plan
That would slay Kublai Khan
In the pass of Pe-li,
Where they died to a man,
All the bowmen of Chi.

JAZZ PHANTASY
In the pale blue moon,
I saw a long-legged loon
On a far away shore,
Where the great surfs roar,
Flapping its pale grey wings in derision.
I found a bag of gold,
Where the breakers rolled;
And I hid it,
Every bit,
In a great green palm,
By a sea so calm
That no sound was heard
But Ihe erg of a bird,
That leered from a branch to the lizards below.
But the bird saw mc
From Ihe top of his tree,
And told
I If the gold
To n monkey cracl:ing peanuts in a cave.
Softlg swaged the palm trees,
trcntlg in the. breeze,
Little, manners in the night
Ecstatic with delight;
But the moonbeams jangled,
Like some tunc new-fangled,
On the gold.
And the monkey from his cave growing bold,
Perched upon my shoulder;
Growing bolder
Toole the gold;
And I lost my hold
From fright,
At this anthropoidic sight.
And so you see,
From that tall tree,
I fell from the twenty-fourth branch
And woke up.
SONNET
At dawn the lark up-thrust hex sleepy head
From out the dew-wet green ichere lay her nest,
And, happiness o'er flowing, w her breast,
Burst into music,-  Circling overhead,
A prowler of the night, hut lately fed,
Espied the cosy shelter of the lark,
And seeking a last morsel ere the dark
From wood and meadow had completely fled,
Swooped down upon her.   Blithely unaware
Of aught amiss, the lurk renewed tenfold
Her trembling paean of adoring praise.
The prowler checked his grim rush in mid-air
And veered away,—still, it is overbold,
Ascribing kindliness to him who slays.

Mary-Marie
Mary gave the door ot the icecream parlor an angry slam behind
her, threw herself into a chair and
there sat staring at the floor. Raising her head a moment later she saw
Lane, behind the counter, looking at
her. Suddenly she remembered herself. What a "mess" she must be and
Marie made it a point never to appear as a 'mess" before any attractive young man, as Lane undoubtedly was. She produced a oheap little
compact, dabbed some powder on her
flat nose with a not over-clean puff,
and with a ten cent comb pulled her
straight black hair Into place. Lane
smiled, He understood Marie pretty
well.
She was an Indian, although she
much preferred to be thought of as
a white girl. Of oourse, she did have
some white blood from her now de*
oeased French grandmother on her
father's side. Her mother, however,
was a full-blooded squaw, the family
lived in a small, unpalnted house at
the far end of the Indian Settlement,
whioh was along the beach from the
village, Marie's grandfather sat all
day long on the door-step, smoking
his pipe and staring vacantly Into
space. Her father and two brothers
fished up the coast during the spring
and summer and In the fall the entire
family went hop-picking in the big
river valley, many miles away. Marie,
however, had stated that she wouldn't
go hop-picking agalh. You worked
too hard and didn't get very much
money, When at home, her mother
•pent most of her time making baskets and trays, which she sold to the
hotel guests.   This was not a very
Srentable business, in spite of what
er oustomers thought, but she needed all tbe money she oould get. If
only Marie would help her, but instead of that Marie took what she
earned to spend on silly things over
at the store,
"Marie" was not her real name*
The name she had been given by (he
priests at the Indian school was Mary
and it was the due by which, much
to her disgust, the family still called
her. It was too ordinary. About five
years ago she became "Marie" in
honor of her favorite movie star,
whose pictures she bad occasionally
seen In the city.
Lane regarded the girl for a tetr
minutes. He knew she was waiting
for htm to apeak, so finally he asked,
"What's the matter?"
"Oh, nuthln'," was tbe inviting reply.
"Yes there is.    Now out with it"
After hesitating for a moment,* she
blurted lt out. "there was a basket
she was supposed to be doing for that
Mrs. Kingston at the hotel. It was
to have been finished four days ago
and she'd hardly even started it.
Why should she have to do it any*
way? Her mother had got the order.
Let her do it if she wanted to. this
basket-making was all right tor Old
people, but they needn't expect Marie
to sit weaving every day from morning till night and they couldn't make
her either.    Not much!"
Lane understood. She was typical
of nearly nil young Indians around
there, who were becoming a cheap
part of the white man's civilization;
young Indians, lncludliiR many half-
breeds, who thought only of sodas,
Hllk-slocklngs and the Saturday night
dances at the pavillion. Lane wondered what was to become of the Indian. Was he to be merged with the
whites, die out altogether, or was he
to remain one of distinct race. Already the old customs, the arts and
the unique traditions had nearly disappeared with the dying-off of the
older generation.
Marie had slumped further down in
her chair. A little plan came Into
Lane's head and he thought he'd like
to try it. "Marie," he said, "if I give
you five dollars will you finish Mrs.
Kingston's basket?" It was pure bribery, he knew, but it would be good
discipline for her to finish her Job.
The girl looked at him. "What's the
catch?" she asked.
"None. Here, I'll give it to you in
advance," he replied, holding out, a
bill.
That decided Marie, "All right,"
she grunted.
Next day the boat for the city had
just left whon a boy came Into the
store with a note for Lane from
Marie. As he opened it, a live dollar
bill  fell  out.
"When you get this," the note read,
"I'll be on the boat for the olty. You
know that Al Gibson I been going
with; veil he's Just got a swell Job In
the city at 180 a month. Last night
he asked me to marry him and go
down there wtth htm; so I won't need
your Ave dollars. I'll have everything I want now.
Marie."
Lane remembered Gibson as a big
blonde, slow-witted sort of creature
who'd been working up back tn the
lumber camp all summer. "Wonder
how she'll have everything she wants"
he thought. Putting on his cap, he
strolled over to the Indian Village,

WINTER WORDS   By Thomas Hardy   (Macmillan)
This is Hardy's last volume of poems. It is the work of an old
Span and the title suits it. For Hardy was not only in the late winter
of life when he wrote most of them but they all have a wintry atmosphere about them.   In one place he wails:
'' Yes} yes • I am old.  In ma appears
The history of a hundred years)
Empires; kings j captives; births and deaths,
Strange faiths, and Meeting shibboleths.
-—Tragedy, comedy throng my page
Beyond all murmmured on any stage t
Cold hearts beat hot, hot hearts beat cold
And I beat on.   Yes; yes; I am old."
As V. Sackville-Weat writing in "The Nation" says: "The furn-
ishings of Hardy 'a mind - • remains the same to the end. Carpenters
are still making coffins; bastards are still born and furtively disposed
of; loves still fail to coincide; the old romance is still evoked and
regretted. - - - The diction, the presentation matched the season. Stiff,
uncomfortable, rheumaticky, it creaked and jerked upon its way. The
great majority of the poems are reminiscent in his most
pessimistic manner. But in spite of this there is an extraordinary
dramatic power in these poems which holds one, and I think we can
write On the back page of his book Hardy's own words:
"You journeyed with a man so glad
You never could concern him sad;
He proved to be
Indubitably
Good company."

QUIET CITIES—by Joseph Hergesheimer (Knopf.)
This is a series of tea essays of bygone America from the middle
of the 18th Century to Emerson and Brook Farm. It is written in a
very modern style and inclined to be confusing, as he deals with his
subject from all angles. But they make interesting and very entertaining reading.

BUROPE—by Count Herman Keyserling
Translated by Maurice Samuel (Capo.)
This is another remarkable book by that remarkable metaphysician and philosopher. It is written with the same artistic perception
and vision that his Travel Diary is. Europe is the crystallization
ol his ideas after travelling extensively all over Europe. One perhaps
will not.agree with all his summings up on the various countries of
Europe; as for instance where he calls the Englishman as the "animal
man" and being too essentially lazy to succeed other than a ruler. He
speaks of the Europe of to-day aa'' emerging as a unity because faced
at closer range by an overwhelming non-European humanity, the
things which'Europeans have in common becoming more significant
than those which divide them." This is a book that every thinking
man and woman should read. In this book Count Keyserling "foretells the world of tomorrow so that the world of today may take heed."
"THE LASLETT AFFAIR"—by "A Gentleman with a Duster."
This is a most interesting and gripping book and quite the best
written by this "Gentleman with a Duster." It is written in a very
modern style coupled with the writer's brilliant skill as a journalist.
The description of a "Varsity match and a raj,*" in Piccadilly will
find a warm place in the heart of all Varsity students. Everybody
at Varsity should read this.   Buy a copy or borrow one from a friend.

"JOSHUA'S VISION"—by W. J. Lock (The Bodley Head.)
Locke is up to his usual here. Always entertaining and good light
reading, "Joshua's Vision," is a sort of modern Trilby, perhaps a
more tragic Trilby. Tt is a story of Joshua Fendick, a boat-factory
sculpture, and Susan Keene. The story has some tense moments in it
and is full of that deftness of narrative and ease and lightness of touch
so characteristic of Mr. Locke's work.
Marcel Proust-An Estimation
(Continued from Pago 1)
Couped up in his room year after year Proust, a sick man, could
not but become introspective and study himself with a sensitiveness—
an unhealthy sensitiveness, we must admit that—with such careful
attentiveness that he has surpassed all other great self-analysts. Thus
it is that Proust is one of tbe few, if not the only novelist, whom we
discuss beside such names as Bergson, Pascal, Leibnitz and Npino/.a.
There is a marvellous breadth in his "Remembrance of Things
Past" which dwarfs even such novels as "The Three Musketeers,"
As Anntole Fra nee "aid: "lie pleased himself in writing of the
splendid desolation of the setliuir sun and the fickle vanities of the
snob." Proust resurrected a mighty image of the past embracing
everything between these poles. For his domain is the past; the
present in his tale being only nn instant of tbe past on which the
light of other moments of a past more or less remote converges. And
through it all Preust strays, like a sleep-walking Hamlet, craving to
be revenged on life which eludes him, disillusioned on all sideo and
persuading himself that all is trickery,
WHAT IS THE MATTER WITH CANADA—by Politicus (Stock-
well, London).
The author in bis preface says, "If these serve to stimulate thought
aad discussion, even disputation and difference, he will feel rewarded."
In that case he should feel amply rewarded, for beside the reviews of
the book, it has been a common topic of discussion among thinking
people in Canada, One wonders, in opening the book, what is the
matter with Canada, or whether there is anthing the matter with
Canada; and in closing the book, one feela there is something the matter
with Canada. "Politicus" has presented his thesis with great clarity
and straightforwardness whioh certainly presents no difficulty even
to the reader who has had no training in Economics, It ia a very comprehensive survey of present conditions in Canada, and while in no
way complete, it opens up many points for discussion. Books of this
sort are only to few and there should be more of them to woke the
average citizen from his apathetic attitude towards the future and
welfare of his country. This book should be of special interest to
students of our University ai»"Politious," otherwise Dr. A. O. MacRae,
was lecturing in the Department of Philosophy here during the session
of 1924*25, taking the place of Dr. Weir who was on leave of absence,
All students and especially students of Economics should read this book.

MR. BLETT8WORTHY ON RAMPOLE ISLAND-by H.G. Wells.
(Ernest Benn.)
This story should be placed beside "Mr. Polly" and "Kipps."
It 1$ full of Well's unflagging energy and vitality. It is the story of
young Arnold Blettsworthy who is brought from Madeira, where he
was born, to live with his uncle and aunt in Cheltenham. He goes to
Oxford where he almost "goes to the dogs,"but is saved by a kindly
old lawyer who sends him on a trip around the world. The "Golden
Lion" is wrecked and young Blettsworthy is oast ashore on Rampole
Island, where his captors receive him as the Sacred Lunatic. But we
are all surprised by Arthur waking up in New York and finding it
was all a dream.   The story is full of Mr, Well's ironic but harmless
propaganda and has some good commentaries on the war.

POINT COUNTER POINT—by Aldous Haxley (Doubleday, Doran

Mr. Huxley is an anti-romanticist and banishes everything from
his books that he thinks is at all romantic. This book is a gold-mine
of ideas but he seems to blight mankind with his irony and at times
the book degenerates into a farce, But the characters are living and
well-drawn and character-like. Lord Edward Tantamount and John
Bidlake will live in the annals of our literature. But in this novel
Mr. Huxtlcy's satire seems to turn to disgust and his realism seems a
trifle forced.

STONE DESERT—by Hugo Wast (Longmans Green). Translated by
Louis Imbert and Jacques Le Clercq.
This is a novel of the Argentine by that well known Argentine
writer whose works have been translated into six languages. The story
is placed in the heights on the western side of the Andes, where herdsmen drive their cattle by peak and precipice, from meadow to windswept meadow. To this region comes Rogue Carpio, free after twenty
years in Tierra del Fuego. What is impossible to win by persuasion
he attempts to win by violence. Around this passion for Marcela
Ontiveros, Hugo Wast has woven a story of the Gaucho Country.
"Stone Desert" was awarded the $30,000 Argentine National prize
for 1927, which, following the award of the Royal Spanish Academy
prize for ins "Black Valley," is another recognition of the ability
which makes Hugo Wast the most popular writer of South America.

Since Emil Ludwig started the
recent fad for biographies, every

peeially literary gossip would enjoy Mr. St. John Adcock's "Tha

Why hjaxz ?
It may seem frivolous, nay even
sacrillglous, to enquire into the origin
of a national institution suoh as Joss.
Doubtless Its divine ancestry should
pass without question, but tbe scientifically critical attitude of the modem
era must be satisfied even as to the
authenticity of its Gods.
Music, Itself, is supposed to have
originated with various forma ef
drums, or at least related Instruments
of percussion. This is natural since
rhythm is the one great fundamental
of all music. The stamp of raarehing
feet may have been the first inspiration to musioal expression. However
that may be, rhythm haa always bean
considered the sine qua nen of music.
Kdw the peculiar Idiosyncrasy of
jaia i-liiates directly to its rhythm.
It is not correct to say, however, ti
is often said, that syncopation Is a
characteristic of Jess. Synoopatlon
has been known and used In true
music for centuries. Jass may pore
properly be said to consist primarily*

Since Joes allegedly awakens pleasurable sensations in rather numerous
specimens of humanity, it must be
assumed that there Is existent In the
world to-day a type of nervous system to which Jass is a pleasure-
stimulus. The existence of joss, then,
ls dependent upon the characteristics
of such nervous temperaments.
It is evident that the duller the
nervous sensibility, the stronger or
more obvious must be the stimulus
required to awaken sensation, e.g., the
wit of the vulgar, which is notoriously
broad. Now If the distinguishing
characteristic of Jazz is an over-emphasized rhythm, it must be intended
to appeal to senses to which the more
delicate stimulation of music would be
subliminal. The reason for jass* must

It has always been the ambition of
writers oft the Muck-a-Muck page to
write* real editorials. This Issue, af*
ter much study, the Feature Page has
deolded to run a few editorials of Its
own.
■e Kind te the Librarian
We must remind students that we
still think that the students ot this
University are Dot suoh well-behaved
boys and tIris ae we think they should
be,
They must know by thla time that
we keep on reminding them to refrain from committing the many ains
that well-brought-up young people
would aster do.
The latest deadly offence that we
must denounce Is that students ao-
tually talk ln the Library, to spite of
our warnings, thus wounding the delicate susceptibilities of Its owner.
We blush with shame ae we take
our pen lo hand in our thankless task.
•   THB C0.T.0. a v
We are colled upon to express our
opinion m,the important eoeetidu of
the O.O.T.O. and to take a determined
stand in the matter.
We believe all the students Were
fully Justified ln their stand on the
question, and are also convinced that
Senate has done exactly the right
thing in making ita decision.
Military training Is or la not a
good thing, that we are convinced.
if thia is so, we must support the
Alma Mater Sooiety and the Senate,
while deploring the attitude ot Senate
and Alma Mater Sooiety.
On the other hand this nay not be
so, and taking the latter view Into
consideration, wo may be forced to
the conclusion that We may be wrong.
At any rate, there are two sides to
the question—our side and the wrong
aide,
We therefore do not hesitate to express our unfaltering decision on the
question.
The Honor System
The Alma Mater Meeting four
months henoe wilt perhaps be the
most Important event of the year.
THB HONOR SYSTEM ITSELF
WILL BE DISCUSSED FOR THB
FIVE HUNDREDTH TIME THB
STUDENTS SHOULD HAVE THB
MEANING OF THB HONOR SYS*
TWM EXPLAINED IN WORDS OF
ONE SYLLABLE.
It will then be shown that the
HONOR SYSTEM will FAIL If
students TALK in the Library.
WALK on the grrss or leave their
TRAYS ln the Cafeteria.
What else ls the use of an Honor
system anyway T
Be Nloe In the Cafeteria
Students must give their serious
attention to the terrible discourtesy
that is disorganizing the staff of tho
Cafeteria.
To be really nice, we must ask
students not to park gum on the seats,
chew tobacco noisily, put their feet
on tho tables, scatter paper on the
floor, take two paper Hervlettes or
Hhrlek through megaphones.
If they do this we will havo some
college spirit.

Ode to aSpeed Cop
O stern-faced sentinel who guards the
ways
That wend their wavy windings college wards;
O horrid nightmare of the student
days;
Terror of flivvers, bugs and college-
Fords,
Eaoh morn your savage gaze scans
college  hordes
Who ride In fear and trembling ln
your sight,
Even    the    Councillors—the    college
lords—
Quickly deckle that "twenty per" ls
right
And proper for their dignity, conceit
and might.
Crank up your flivvers, you men of
the college
And  start off  ten  minutes  before
nine o'clock.
'Tls sad that the highway that should
lead to knowledge
Too oftens ends up In the prisoner's
dock.
Behold the mighty bus—the students
friend-
Lumbering    on    with    elephantine
speed
Amid a stream of cars without an end
That hardly give their larger brother
heed,
But rattle on, so desperate their need
To get to "nine o'cloeks" before the
bell.
The ambushed cop astride his metal
steed
Appears   and   frightened   students
mutter "Hell!"
Only the bus Is left, the doleful tale
to tell.
Have you no mercy, dreadful lurking
man?
Are you as heartless as your grim
machine?
Alas, I fear from you determined mien,
You'll do us fellows all the dirt you
can,
Students   have   named   you   "Sitting
Bull"
After that Indian chief,
Who gathered many bales of scalps
Before he came to grief.
But there will come at last a day
Before your life ls run,
When conscience will come to Its own,
And you will set and weep alone
For the deeds that, you have done.
NEWSMAN TRAILS
CHINESE MEN ACE
This issue's instalment of our
mystery story has been written
by  a  graduate,   to  celebrate
Home-Coming Week.
Belted* 4
Otear Scrlbblewell gated In horror
at the still-trembling knife and the
cryptic message.
"At latt," he murmured, "I have a
olue. 1 forgot to pay my Chinese
laundry-man,
"Laundry? Then you're no Science
atudent," ejaculated tbe Proftttor,
who was now at bis side, also gating
in horror at Chang Busy's warning.
"Man! Can't you realise? Time is
precious, we have none to lose. At
any moment it may be turned Into
vacant space, suoh as the gymnasium
site. We must, at all costs regain the
Time Transformer before ail nine-
o'clock lectures are hurled Into
chaos!"
Scrlbblewell thuddered. "Oo you
mean that 1 may be turned back into
a Freshman?" he gasped at length.
The Protestor blanched. "Yea, or
even worae," he whispered, remember-
ing the Darwinian theory.
The reporter drew himaelf to bis
full height, grim determination stamped on <ivery feature. "It is worse than
I thought,1' he said solemnly, "do,
go back to your laboratory and try to
discover the antidote. If neoetsary,
request the University Medical Officer
to vaccinate all the students. You
must not fail."
Professor Sawyer staggered to the
suok-room stairs aad slowly climbed
to the floor above.
Scrlbblewell thought aa rapidly as
a threeyear university training would
permit. Chang Suey, the Formula—
the Time Transformer. Try as he
could, It was hard to realise that he
still lived in the every-day world; that
he wai merely a humble Science-man,
and that he had to tend in a 1600 word
report ot tbe Second Soccer Team by
noon.
A alight rustle behind him.
He turned, thinking that it was only
one of the students in the carrels
turning over In his sleep.
Oscar Scrlbblewell glanced around,
Juat In time to tee a small white hand
disappearing behind the door ot the
stack-room elevator.
Scrlbblewell rushed to the elevator. Too late—the oar was
already two floors above I
Bpleede tt
Oscar Scrlbblewell leaned
back in hit crimson padded
leather chair in the upper common-room and lastly fingered a
pawn.
Around him rose the shouts,
the laughs, and the merry jests
of the chess-players as they
stood enthralled In the king of
games, Here and there In obscure corners, invading Science-
men grappled to the death with
infuriated Artltes, while, enthroned on the centre table,
Nick Abramson ruled supreme.
It was a sight to have gladdened
the eyes of a Rembrant, a Dante
or a member of the School of
Seven.
The reporter reclined, wrapped in thought—a striking contrast to the other students in
the room . Here he must stay
inactive while the destiny of
the world lay in the yellow talons of Chang Suey, the Mysterious. He began to wonder
who was the slayer of Stew
Souser, the brightest light of
the Oulpa Dramma Rhi fraternity. Was it the bearded man,
the man with the white hand
or the chief of police? Incredible though it seemed, he
could only come to one conclusion. It must have been Lon
Chaney!
A harsh sound broke the comparative stlllnett ot the room.
It waa the eight-cylinder super-
iodine radio that had been given
to the Cheaa Room by Solenco
ae a token of admiration.
"Station C-R-AX—The next
number wtll be a parody on
"That's my Weakness Now," at
sung by five classes and eight
cluba of the U.B.C.
Scrlbblewell listened with a-
pathy, then suddenly sprang to
his feet. A new voice had
broken through the music. "O.
8., To get the Formula, call at
1313 Pekln Alley «! "The
voice broke off abruptly, and
the piercing shriek of a woman
burst from the Instrument.
"Help! Help!" ♦ • Crash!
Then—silence.

"Study the non-Chrittlan religions
sympathetically and you will see In
them the expressions ot men and women throughout the long, long ages,
seeking after God," said Rev. AH.
Sovereign, M.A., tpeaklng under S.C.
M. auspices on Tuesday. His subject
was: "The Relation Between Christianity and the Non-Chrlttlan Religioner In the course of hit addrett
be discussed the changing attitude
toward God and the Bible and toward
other religions.
"Christianity ls not static Its
.truths, ideals and phases will be
looked at in a different way by sue*
ceeding generations." Fifty years ago
the materialistic type of heaven woe
sincerely believed In and people
thought there were actual fires tn
hell. No thoughtful person would believe that to-day, yet there mast always be ideals of reward and punishment.
We cannot think of the Bible as an
Infallible book. Not all parts of it are
valuable as moral guides. It ls a
progressive revelation. Throughout
it there Is a broadening idea of
Jehovah, culminating In calling him
Father and believing his character!**
tic to be love. To-day we feel that
there is a real relationship between
science and the Bible, an attitude
hitherto inconceivable.
Similarly, there ls now a different
attitude among thoughtful people with
regard to non-Chrlstlan religions. The
terms "pagan" and "heathen" are obsolete. Scholars have translated
books and tablets of other religions
and brought their fundamental ideas
and Ideals to us as never before.
There are common elements lu all of
them. "The study ot religion In a
great comprehensive view Is a
characteristic of this page."
There are two ways of looking at
the non-Christian faiths. The first it
to think of them too lightly, to condemn them as works of the devil,
whereas they are works of God. The
second is to think too much of them.
The fine quotations we eometlmes
hear are not representative. These
religions are inferior to Christianity
in many respects. Confucius did not
bellove in God. Buddhism Inspires *
drifting Into Nirvana and suppression
of all desire.
The hapy medium between these
two attitudes would give a truer and
finer conception of them. They were
seeking for a similar expression of
the longing of their hearts for God
und thoy almost found it.
