C. BARTON
WINS Y.M.C.A.
MILE EVENT
Buckley Severely Handicapped in
Distance Run—Not Enough
Varsity Entrants.
Three entrants from the Varsity
Track Club made a good showing in
the Y.M.C.A. handicap indoor meet.
Barton was an easy winner in the
mile event, H. B. Goult, third in the
high jump, while Buckley came second in the broad jump, fourth in the
300 yards and sixth in the distance
event. In the latter event Buckley
was put on scratch, all the other contestants being given a three minute
start, which is approximately half a
mile. The handicap was altogether
too much, but speaks well for the
estimation in which Buckley is held
in local track circles. Buckley says
he has no alibis to make but wishes
the distance had been a few miles
longer so that he might have caught
up. As it was he lessened the distance between the winner and himself
by more than half, which means he
would have been a quarter of a mile
ahead if they had all started even.
The race was from the Vancouver
Hotel to Hastings Park, four miles.
Barton   Deserves   Much   Credit
Barton demonstrated what training
will do, when he showed a clean pair
of heels to all competitors in the mile
event. In justice to his opponents we
must add that he was given a handicap of 85 yards, but Carl didn't need
it and came in an easy winner. The
course was, however, a little short,
evidently Carl thought so, because he

stilted English of the time as though
it were his natural speech, and to incorporate therein Shakespearean quotations with the utmost ease. The
production owed much of its convincing atmosphere to the excellent and
faithful costuming, and the simple,
suggestive  stage-setting.
Miss   Anderson's   Play.
The appearance of "The High
Priest" on the bill must have been
very welcome to everyone interested
in the product of student-activity
along creative lines. The idea of the
play is one which suggests at once
the possibility and perhaps the desirability of expansion. The dramatic
situation is there, without the subtlety of dramatic unfoldding. The end
comes somewhat baldly. The audience would have been keyed more
surely for the dramatic finish, had
Capt. Eastwood and his wife been
thrown into sharper relief against a
more powerfully ominous background
■—an effect which a longer play would
have made possible. This, however,
is a problem in technique rather than
a question of basic idea, and Miss Anderson is to be congratulated upon
the clarity with which the final conflict is depicted—the love of a wife
for her husband against the love of a
fanatic for his god. "The High Priest"
exhibits a great deal of promise as
well as much merit of actual achievement.
Barbara, played by Miss Constance
Peter, is the commanding figure in
the play. Miss Peter succeeded very
well in making the audience feel the
psychological change which makes
the tragic end inevitable. The High
Priest, Percy Barr, did not reveal that
look of steely asceticism which spells

The always-looked-forward to Christmas performance of the Players' Club
took place November 23, 24, 25. It
must be difficult indeed to choose four
plays which will at once give the
necessary variety of impression, and
yet be within the possibilities of University stage-equipment, and Players'
Club newly recruited talent. The bill
of last year was an example of unusual felicity in this respect. One
could not easily expect it to be surpassed; and knowing the difficulties,
one would have been surprised had
this year's choice equalled it. The
program, though bearing two distinguished names, was yet necessarily
below one which included Barrie's
most popular one-act play, and Eugene O'Neil's "He."
The   Dark   Lady.
"The Dark Lady of the Sonnets"
though under the safe-guard of Bernard Shaw's name, is nothing but
"words." Even more than most of
Shaw's plays, it is cloak for a thesis;
and though it cannot be said that this
thesis is ephemeral, as Vancouver
people appreciate, still its baldness
leaves much to be desired from the
point of view of dramatic interest.
Honors in this play go to A. Zoond
as Will Shakespeare, and Beatrice
Johnson as Queen Elizabeth. This
last choice was especially an inspiration, as in appearance, voice, and
gesture, Miss Johnson so well suggested the Virgin Queen.. Her acting
showed a remarkable power, and one
could have wished to have seen more
of it. Tradition does not well round-
out the figure of Master Shakespeare,
but there were many excellencies in
Mr. Zoond s portrayal of the character, notably his ability to deliver the

IN OPENING
CONTESTS
m
Varsity   Basketball   Teams   Win
Three, Lose Three—Season
Promises Good Play.
Varsity basketball team got off to a
successful start in the opening week
of the basketball season, winning
three games out of a series of six.
In the senior tilts, Varsity Senior A
lost to Y.M.C.A. by the close score of
25-31, while the ladies senior team defeated the Normals 14-12, and decisively thumped the Native Daughter's
quintette 32-2. The Varsity Intermediate basketballers lost two games in
three starts, the Firsts winning from
Normals and both teams losing to St.
Marks.
#**    A   Hard   Fought Game.
In the Senior A game, Varsity was
up against the fast stepping Y team—
champions of the city, and good
basketball was played all through.
Varsity started fast and Bickell scored
directly from the face off. Within a
few minutes U. B. C. had run in nine
points while the Y failed to get past
the Varsity guards. But from then
on UH' the end of the half, it was nearly all "Y," with the "Y" men running
their score up to 18 points. In the
second half Varsity came back strong,
and the jiace set by both teams was
exceedingly fast. Varsity gradually
crej)S up. but could not overcome the
big^score of the "Y" team, and the
game ended with Varsity on the short
end of a 31-25 count. Every man on
the Varsity team turned in a splendid
game, with Bickell and Lewis especially scintillating. The team:—Bick-
well and Bassett, forwards; Hartley,
cents; Lewis and Currei, guards.
(Continued on  Page 5)
The Capetown Game
Last Saturday Varsity, playing a
distinctly mixed team, managed to
beat ' the H.M.S. Capetown fifteen
fairly easily by a score of 11-0.
During the early stages of the game
the play was fairly even. Varsity
showed more team work but their
opponents tackled hard and well, at
times making considerable ground by
dribbling and touch kicking.
The first try came towards the close
of the first half when the ball coming
from a scrum crossed the three-quarter line to McLane, who, seeing an
opening, went over for a nice try. The
kick was unsuccessful.
Play in the second half was distinctly in Varsity's favour. Some ten
minutes after its start Greggor scored
as a result of a fumble on the part
of one of the "Capetown" backs.
Price converted. Following a very
good piece of combination by the forwards McVittie came into possession

FINAL ARRANGEMENTS
FOR  VICTORIA  TRIP
Although final arrangements have
not yet been made about the Victoria
Trip, Doug Rae, when interviewed yesterday, was able to give some interesting information, regarding the Varsity's annual invasion of the Capital.
There will be something doing every
minute, and a good time will be enjoyed by all that make the trip. Best
of all is the dance to be held in the
Empress Hotel on Saturday evening.
The programme, (subject to correction) is as follows: —
Friday, Jan. 5, 3 o'clock. 3 Basketball games, (two men's and one women's games will be played).
3:30 or 4 o'clock. Rowing (two
races).
3 :30 or 4 o'clock. Badminton (about
four sets).
7:00 or 7:30 o'clock. Basketball
(men's and  women's  senior  games).
9:00 o'clock. Boxing (five bounts).
Standard weights, 125 to 170 lbs.
Saturday, Jan. 6, Morning. Women's Grass Hockey.
Afternoon—Rugby, Varsity II. vs.
J.B.A. Between games a four mile
relay will be held. Four men, one
mile  each.
Rugby, McKechnie Cup game at 3
o'clock.
Swimming, about 5:30 p.m. confined
to Varsity and some one other club.
J.B.A.A. if possible.
8:30.    Ball in the Empress Hotel.
Expenses should not exceed $10.00.
Tickets for the trip should be obtained at the C. P. R. ticket office, and
not Pier 'D,' and will cost $3.75. This
is good for return trip and is limited
to ten days. It is important to note
that the ten day limit is confined to
parties of ten or more. Parties of
less than ten must return on Sunday's
boat.
Women will be accommodated at
the Strathcona Hotel, at 75 cents per
night. Accommodation for men will
be found at the Dominion at $1.00 per
night. It is not yet decided if the
men will stay at the Dominion. If
other arrangements are made, a notice
to that effect will be posted.
All students who are making the
trip, or who are reasonably sure of
so doing are requested to sign the list
in the Entrance Hall. (Main notice
board). This is for your own convenience in accommodation and all
are asked to co-operate.
BOXING
The contest in Victoria will be the
first occasion on which the members
of the Boxing Club have represented
the University in outside competition.
Naturally, therefore, no effort will be
spared to make a good showing.
The preliminary selections for the
five bouts arranged will be made tonight. Two men in each weight will
be chosen. These men will go into
special training, during which it will
be possible to make a more exact
estimate of their capabilities. At as
late a date as possible before the trip
the final selection will be made.
POSSIBILITY OF NEW
ATHLETIC  PARKS
At the present time certain monies
to the value of some $150,000 lie in
the bank representing an unexpended
balance left after various park improvements and purchases. This balance at present is supposed to be divided amongst the different wards, but
the Park Commissioners propose to
consolidate it and use it for park improvements and the purchase of
grounds suitable for Athletics, football, baseball, etc., and with this end
in view a bylaw is to be submitted to
the civic electors to sanction the
spending of said monies.
Considering the scarcity of Athletic
grounds and the increasing number of
our football and baseball teams, etc.,
the passing of this bylaw should prove
of more than a little interest to the
students of the University, more especially to those materially interested
in Athletics.
A committee has been formed of
representees from the various Athletic organization in the city and a
campaign similar to our Varsity campaign has been started to boost this
bylaw and bring its significance to
every elector in the city. A door to
door canvas by Varsity students and
the obtaining of signatures in support
of this bylaw is hardly possible at
this date; but a feeling should exist
among students here that the passing
of this bylaw is to their own advantage and should receive the support
of all interested in College Athletics.
A little campaigning at home and
among our neighbors might easily
bring enough votes to have the margin on the right side.

JOHN   OLIVER'S   LETTER
The   following   is   the   replica   of  a
letter  written   by   Premier   Oliver   on
November 23, 1922.
Miss  Dorothy  H.  Walsh,
Secy., Alma Mater Society,
University of British Columbia,
Vancouver, B. C.
Dear Miss Walsh:
Replying to yours of the 21st inst.,
inviting me to address University
Students, as you know the Legislature is in Session and probably will
be until after December 6th, when
your  vacation  commences.
Early in January, I expect to have
to leave for Eastern Canada on important Provincial business.
I would be very pleased, opportunity offering, to speak to the University
Students and shall consider your offer
open if I am able to avail myself
thereof.
Yours very truly,
(Signed)  John  Oliver.
There are many who will deeply regret that the Session of the Legislature and important Provincial business have combined to make it impossible for Premier Oliver to address
the University Students. If, however,
the premier at some later date is
able to avail himself thereof, the students will be only too pleased to learn
just how it is that the University of
British Columbia is a luxury to the
Province.
CHESS   ACTIVITIES   OVER.
Owing to the proximity of the examinations, the Chess Club has decided to postpone it's next meeting
until after Christmas. Mr. Hislop,
who was the leading light in organizing the Club, has resigned as member
of the committee owing to pressure of
studies, but is still an enthusiastic
member. Richardson has been appointed in his place. The next day
of play will be announced in the
"Ubyssey," and any new players will
be  very welcome.
OUTDOORS  CLUBS
Last Sunday the Outdoors Club took
a trip to Hollyburn Ridge. A hot
lunch was soon provided. The party
proceeded through a foot and a half
of snow on up to the peak. From
there a wonderful view of Howe
Sound, Capilano River, the Fraser, Mt.
Baker, etc. was obtained.
During the coming holidays some of
the men will be going up at different
times and spend several days at the
cabin.
Non-members who would like a real
outing are invited to come along.

VARSITY VS.
CEDAR COTTAGE
Varsity again played to a draw at
Cambie Street on Saturday when tiiey
stacked up against Cedar Cottage.
The game was listless throughout and
the brand of soccer produced was not
worthy of two First Division teams.
Play went from end to end of the
field, and both goalies were called
upon to stop some fast shots. The
play that is usually associated with
crack teams was lacking and the fans
were treated to ninety minutes mediocre play.
The Blue and Gold were, this week,
deprived ot the excellent services of
Baker. His place was ably filled by
Phillips who at all times played a
steady and reliable game, and was
perhaps the outstanding man among
the both teams.
Cottagers'   Defence   Strong.
The first-half found the Varsity
pressing strongly, but unable to penetrate the Cottagers defense. The
leather would go from Lundie to McLeod and then down the wing to Jeff
Emery only to be turned back. This
seemingly had a disheartening effect
on Varsity, and try as they would,
they could not score.
The second-half was a repetition of
the first, 1he only difference being that
Cedar Cottage had slightly the best
of the exchanges. Morgan, at outside
right proved exceptionally dangerous
and twice came within an ace of scoring. Elliott too, played a fine game
for the suburbanites.
For Varsity, as it has been said,
Phillips was the outstanding man.
Dean worked hard and at times was
most effective. The players showed
a tendency toward off-side play but
very little escaped the eye of Referee
Webster.
Sparks, the Varsity trainer, was as
usual on hand. He is an Arts '24
man, and a consistent worker in the
interests of the round ball game. He
turns out to every league game, practise, and cup-tie, and is of very great
assistance to the team.
The Collegians stacK up against the
Chinese students next week and an
interesting game should result. A win
for Varsity will put the Blue and Gold
two games up in the race for the
Mainland Cup.
TRACK EVENTS.
(Continued from Page 1)
ran around an extra lap after the race
was over, at a fine clip. Barton won
his race on sheer grit and condition
and has set an example that other
'Varsity track enthusiasts would do
well to follow. Buckley's time in the
four mile event was about 20 minutes
which is. five minutes to the mile all
the way. His distance in the broad
jump was 18 feet for which he got
second place.
In the high jump event Goult won
third place. He was placed with
Cathcart, Elks, as scratch man and
his opponents were given four inches
and three inches handicap over him.
However, he fought gamely and after
a desperate struggle, put Varsity in
third place. Cottrell, Y.M.C.A. was
first, and Cathcart, Elks, second.
It is interesting to note that A. A.
Nicholson, a member of the class of
Arts '21, and now running for the
South Vancouver Track Club copped
the individual championship of the
meet with 10 points. Nicholson is also
holder of the B. C. vaulting record,
having cleared the bar at 10 feet 6
inches.
Varsit'y three entries in the track
meet did  extremely well and deserve
INTERMEDIATE RUGBY.

(1) Rowing   Club.
(2) Bank of Commerce.
(3) Varsity III.
(4) Frosh.
(5) Normal.
Varsity Frosh lost to Rowing Club
last Saturday on Bridge street grounds.
The grounds were heavy and the wet
field made the going slow. No score
resulted in the first half and the Frosh
held the play even; the Frosh scrum
was working fine and got the ball out
quite regularly. After the interval
the Rowers pressed hard and came
near scoring on several occasions. A
free-kick awarded them was coined
into points, and a touch by Tait
brought the score to 6-0, which the
Club held till the end of the game.

tafson, Rowan, Gyles, Gross, Darts,
Choate, Pattinges, Luyat, Hunter,

THE   CRUCIAL  GAME.
On Saturday, Dec. 2, Varsity III.
plays Rowing Club II., a game which
will most probably decide which team
will gain the "Province Cup" for the
season. To date each team has lost
one match and for this reason the
team which wins on Saturday will
have a commanding lead over the
other. The "Province Cup" has not
previously been won by Varsity for
the last three years the college team
lias finished second. The present
seems one of the best opportunities
Varsity has had of bringing home this
trophy, and as there are no first or
second matches next week-end at
home a full turn-out is expected by
the players at 12th and Cambie.
VARSITY JR. vs. ROWING CLUB  III.
Saturday afternoon the Varsity
Junior Rugby team drew with the
Rowing Club III., with one unconverted touch apiece. The Rowing Club
showed a big improvement and had
the juniors on the defensive practically the whole game. Thompson, for
the Rowing Club, made the only score
of the first period, when he went over
near tne corner post from a loose
scrum. Varsity then forced the play
for a few minutes but Rowing Club
came back strongly and the end of
the period found Varsity defending in
their own twenty-five.
In the second period Varsity started out with a rush and forced Rowing Club to save. A few minutes later
Warren intercepted a cross-kick and
scoTed behind the posts after a fine
thirty-five yard run. Davidson missed
an easy convert. This seemed to
arouse the Club who kept the play in
Varsity's half for the remainder of
the game. Only a strong defensive,
accompanied with good-luck, prevented the Club from scoring in this
period. The junior team, as a whole,
played very poorly but aie not entirely to blame as they are unable to
practise at all, on account of lack of
grounds.
Line-Up—McDevitt, Newmarch, Lipsey, Davidson. Munn, Harkness, Wilcox, Roberts. Kidson, Danaher, Louden, Goodwin, Warren, Demidoff.
much praise for their work. However,
some criticism of the small number
of the V. B. C. entrants was forthcoming and Bert Davidson seemed to
express the opinion of the "Y" officials
when he expressed disappointment at
the number of IT. B. C. entries. He
said he realized the great difficulties
in the way of track athletes at U. B.
C, but was firm in his conviction that
Varsity having the material, should
develop it.

have recently made disparaging remarks about the policy of the University, and have criticised departments, as well as the whole institution, rather severely. Unconvinced of
the material value of a University
training, they have characterized
higher education as "ornamental but
not useful," "beautiful but not productive," "putting on finishing touches," and so on. Some newspapers
have also taken up the cry and have
had their fling at the practicality of
University courses.
The statements are mainly vague
generalities which have little, if any,
basis in fact. Statistics of the kind
quoted in another editorial article in
this issue go to show indubitably that
University training has a very material value, not only to the individual
but also to the community. The
academic standing of the University
of British Columbia compares very
favourably with that of otner colleges
on this continent and there is no reason to suppose that graduates from
this institution are not able to fend for
themselves in the commercial and industrial world as well as other graduates. Had the critics ascertained
f'cts of the kind indicated they would
1: Te had had no foundation for their
attacks. We have no hesitation in
saying that the University need have
no fear of any investigation into its
policies throwing any discredit upon
it.
The criticisms represent a reaction
to the propaganda of the student campaign on the part of a very considerable body of people in this province
who have only one basis of judgment
for every question—that of material
value. Luckily for us it is possible to
justify the University to such people
even of we accept their promise,
which we consider the least important
element in formulating an opinion as
to the true value of a University in
any community. It is necessary now
for us to meet the critics on their own
ground and, by exposing the fallacy
of their criticism, complete the justification of our case before the public.
PRACTICAL   OR   ORNAMENTAL
The following is a statement concerning University students recently
made by a member of our Provincial
Legislature, as reported in the daily
press:
"I state, too, that many of the
students attending are simply there
putting on finishing touches."
"They never expect to use the instruction they are receiving there
in connection with their daily life.
It is in the nature of a luxury—
beautiful but not productive."
It is difficult to reconcile such a
statement with the following authoritative and easily available data:
Only one in a hundred of the people
of the United States is a college graduate, yet 36 per cent, of every 100 congressmen have been college graduates,
while 50 per cent, of the presidents,
54 per cent, of the vice-presidents, 69
per cent, of the supreme court judges,
and 87 per cent, of the attorney-generals have had college degrees. There
is a book called "Who's Who in America," which contains the names of
persons who are well known because
of their good works. The person who
cannot read and write has one chance
in 150,000 to get his name into this
b»ok; the grammar school graduate,
one in 4,250; the high school graduate,
one in 1,600; the college graduate,
one in 180; the honor student in college, one in three.
Further statistics could be quoted,
but they should scarcely be necessary
to convince a reader that a course at. i
college is of eminently practical value,
not only to the individual, but to the
state which that individual may serve.
THE   UBYSSEY   WISHES   A   HAPPY
CHRISTMAS   TO   ALL
In a great Buddhist temple in Japan
there is this inscription: "Stranger,
whosoever thou art and whatsoever
thy creed, remember that to millions
this is a holy place. "Be reverent."
The same language could be applied
to the festival ot" Christmas now approaching It is more than an adapted pagan feast, it is more even than
a time when class distinctions are'
broken down by a spirit of human
fellowship. On this day we celebrate
the beginning of a new era, when the
mighty Power of the Universe quickened our spiritual life with "good tidings of great joy." In spite of dogmas and scepticism, of doubt and
superstition, the message of joy and
goodwill has come down through more
than nineteen stormy centuries, and
mankind has found comfort in the
message. "Whosoever thou art and
whatsoever thy creed, remember that
to millions this is a holy time."
THE   REFERENCE   SHELVES
The matter of treating reference
books as personal property becomes
particularly serious near examination
time. Those who normally would not
hasten to finish a book, or rush to replace it on the reference shelf for
the next person, should at this time
be prodded until forcibly awakened to
the ethical side of the question. We
do not hesitate to suggest intimidation by the remaining members of
the class, if warnings prove ineffective.

The people who remove electric
light bulbs from the stack room attribute their fall from grace to a recent revival meeting where they had
been singing "Brighten the Corner

TRESPASSERS,   TAKE   NOTICE
To the  Editor,
The   "Ubyssey."
Dear   Sir:—
Mr. Buckley is to be congratulated on
the stard he has taken re Track Athletics. At the present time, at the University there seems to be more interest
shown in table Barnes than in this
branch   of   sport.
Georg2 GouldiiiK, known the world
over as an excellent walker—in fact a
world beater, has offered his services, to
coach any one that cares to turn out.
So tar no one has accepted his invitation.
The University has much excellent
material, and misht with careful coaching" develop some aspirant for Olympic
honors. Until there is more interest
shown, and until a different policy is
adopted than the present one, track
sports at the U. H. C. will be a back-
number.
Sincerely yours,
H.   LS.  GOULT.

U.  B.  C.  111. vs.  PT. GREY
Point Grey Athletic again triumphed over U. B. C. third division soccer
team when they scored 2 goals to
Varsity's 1 at Braemar Park, Saturday.
All goals were secured in the first
half, Varsity scoring first after a fine
center by Wodehouse. Point Grey followed with their two, the result of
loose play by the college defence
which was rearranged owing to Spencer's absence.    Varsity tried  hard till
BASKETBALL NEWS.
(Continued from Page 1)
The game between Varsity Intermediate Firsts and Normal proved an
easy victory for Varsity, and the
flashy U. B. C. quintette beat the
teachers to the tune of o7-12. At no
time during the match was Varsity
headed, and it was just a case of Varsity piling up points. The Varsity
team worked well together, with H.
Arkley and Henderson leading in the
scoring.
St. Mark's Combination Good.
On Monday night at the St. Marks
gym, St. Marks again proved too much
for Varsity when they took a game
from the Intermediate Firsts by the
score of 35-28. The game was fast
and was featured by St. Marks stellar
combination play. The half-time score
was 13-4. In the second half Varsity
pulled up but could not fathom the
St. Marks combination, and after a
desperate struggle Anally conceded defeat. The lineup:—H. Arkley, S. Arkley and Henderson forwards; Fulton,
centre;  McKay and Paulson, guards.
Ladies  Win   Both  Games.
On Saturday night the ladies senior
team emerged victors from a strenuous tussle with the Normal quintette,
in a game that was replete with thrills
from start to finish. Varsity was
down 10-6 in the first half, but came
right back and combining a brilliant
passing game with accurate shooting
finally won 14-12.
The ladies' game on Monday night
was a walk-a-way for Varsity; the U.
B. C.' quintette having little difficulty
in winning 32-2. Helen Tatlow and
Gladys Weld starred for Varsity. The
team:—Helen Tatlow and Isobel Russell, forwards; Gladys Weld, centre;
Doris Lee and Eloise Angell, guards.
A Cyclonic Finish.
The Intermediate Seconds ran into
a hard game when they stacked up
against the crack St. Marks team, last
year's champions. Varsity lead at the
end of the first half 11-8, but couldn't
hold their slippery and rough playing
opponents, who romped away with the
game 25-17, after a cyclonic finish in
which they boosted their score from
18-17 to 25-17. McKenzie and Gross
of Varsity and Stevenson of St.
Marks were the heavy scorers. The
lineup:—Gross and McKenzie, forwards; Harvie, centre; Boomer and
Grauer, guards.

penetrate   the   Point   Grey   defence.
The team:—Davidson, Stibbs, Gib-

The   Mellerdrammer.
"On   Vengeance   Height"   occupied
the place usually given to the tragedy.
It deals with the subject of a moun-'
tain  vendetta,  and  the  two   possible j
outcomes   of   the   situation   are   quite
clear   to   the   audience.     But   unfortunately   the   author   chose   one   solu-1
tion, while the audience expected the
other.    It may be that the author sincerely   thought   that   his   choice,   that
Carmault  should   be  killed  by  young
Clay, was the nearest to actual probability;   the   only  thing  that  can  account for the decided reaction of disappointment on the part of the audience is  that the  artistic  logic  of his '
presentation   demanded  a  reversal  of
this solution.
The part of "Gram," played by Miss
Mildred Teeple, so far outweighs the
remaining parts in the play as to be a
heavy strain on its interpreter.    Miss :
Teeple's presentation of the blind old
woman  was marked  by an  emotional
intensity  tempered  by  sufficient  restraint to make it doubly effective; one \
felt behind her the force of a single '
fixed idea, the accumulation of years
of suffering.    In an  interpretation  so ;
nearly flawless, so well sustained, one j
realizes with difficulty the effort and i
artistry that must have been involved.
Mr. Shore was very satisfying as
the burly rough, survivor of the Car- ]
maults; Miss M. Jackson as Hope, j
and Mr. L. Edgett as Clay, were the
younger generation sympathetically
taking for granted the seriousness of
the whole affair.
Rococo.
Rococo is structurally, the most
finished play on the bill; a farce with
exceptional advantages. It has good
lines, and an acting quality which
does not leave the burden of the ef-!
feet to the dialogue alone; not only
was it written by Granville Barker,
but it was the best-cast play of the ■
evening. The plot is farcical, but is
complicated by extremely human emotions of personal preference and dislike;  the characters are distinct. i
Nothing   but   praise   can   be   given
those who presented it—the Vicar (H. i
V. Warren)  with his touching dignity, j
Mrs.   Underwood   (Miss  M.  Bulmer); |
the submissive wife of such a vicar; i
Miss Underwood (Miss B. McLennan) ■
the dreadful maiden sister in all her ;
glory, with unwonted spirit, and a very
much  compressed  line  for  a mouth; '
most important of all, Mr. Uglow  (M. '<
J.   C.   Dickson)   proud   of   his   ability
to   keep   his    temper   with    his   wig I
askew, and revelling in an active dis- j
like of futile females.
TALKS  ON   THE  CHOICE  OF  A
PROFESSION
Wednesday noon, Nov. 22nd, Dean
Brock gave a very practical and interesting talk on "The Engineering
Professions" laying special stress on
the traits essential for a successful
Engineer.
On Nov. 29th Prof. Turnball spoke
on "The Mining Engineer," pointing
out that as the Mining Engineer has
to be familar with all branches of
Engineering, he is therefore in a position to switch to any other Engineering Profession.
These talks are being given by various members of the Faculty of Applied Science, in the Geology Lecture
Room each Wednesday at 12:25 noon.
They should prove of special interest
to First Year Students in Arts and
First and Second Year students in
Science, as they are given in order to
assist a student in deciding whether
to enter an engineering profession,
and if so, which.
Next Wednesday Prof. Thompson
will speak on "The Life and Work of
the  Metallurgist."
PLAYERS' CLUB
At the conclusion of the Christmas
plays on Friday night, Mr. F. G. C.
Wood was presented with a handsome
reading lamp by the Faculty Women's Club of the University, as a token
of its esteem and appreciation of his
untiring efforts as Director of the
Players'  Club.
Following the presentation, the Governors, the Faculty and the members
of the Players' Club were the guests
of Dean and Mrs. Brock at a delightful
supper held in the Cafeteria.
At the close of the evening, all present heartily echoed the vote of thanks
proposed to Dean and Mrs. Brock for
their kind hospitality.
It is not the policy of our college
paper to support or decry anything of
a political nature even if merely connected with the passing of civic bylaws. In view of this we should look
on the following from the standpoint
of people vitally interested in the result thereof.
Players'  Lips—Rich  and  cool.
Bon   Ami   Lips—Haven't    scratched
yet.
Wrigley Lips—The flavor lasts.
Gold Medal Lips—The lips that say
"Eventually, why not now?"
Packard    Lips—Ask   the   man   who
owns one.
Gillette    Lips—Known    the    world
over.

of the ball. Carlisle called for a cross-
kick which the first-named player
made. A scramble resulted about
fifteen yards from the opposing line
and Jonas picking up got across near
the goal posts. The try was not converted. The final whistle blew soon
afterwards.
The game though only at times productive of good rugby was nevertheless interesting for both players and
spectators. The "Capetown" team has
not had much opportunity to get together as yet but it is to be hoped
that they enjoyed the game as much
as  the  college  team.

BOOK REVIEW.
DEVILS   I   HAVE   KNOWN
(By Alia Bautem)
No more striking comment upon
Miss Bautem's novel could be found
than that afforded by the first paragraph:
"Boris Sneezikoff threw down the
ochre cloak which proved him a Het-
man of the Arak Cossacks, and laughed mockingly. "I have come three
vodkas tonight for this, my Soma.
Think you I shall depart unsatisfied?"
He detached the silver mounted
droshky from his hip and filled two
versts standing on the polished pood
nearby. His hand caressed the delicately chastened moujik as he frowned thoughtfully. Sonia smiled up into
his face as she slipped a jewel-handled
samovar carefully between his floating ribs, just below the troika. "Now
I shall have a monopoly in the manufacture of doughnut holes," she mused,
"Octagonal doughnut holes, in little
tinfoil wrappings "
"There's Sunshine in My Soul Today," carolled the Salvationist.
"An' moonshine on my hip, horray,"
joined in the cheerful Inebriate.

"WHO'S  WHO  IN  HELL
OR
"WHO IN HELL'S WHO."
Few accounts of the World below
have contained a social write-up. To
the uninitiated a Devil is simply a
devil and nothing more. Milton most
unfairly depicts Hell after a family
removal, when everybody was very
much upset, and "three removals are
as bad as a fire. "Dante wrote of
Hell en passant and consequently he
lacks depth and sympathy. It is our
purpose to give a patriotic write-up
of the lower regions, a comprehensive
view of its opinions, and intimate portraits of its inhabitants.
We believe, in view of the coming
examinations, the subject is justified and of interest to all our readers.

How deprecatingly they spoke!
"We think the  fox-trot past a joke,
The waltz,  unseemly prancing-"
"Devout young people," so they say,
"Are  acting very oddly
To hug each other so.    We may    *
Not put it any other way—
They're very far from godly!"
But, ah, no harmless exercise
Upon a dancing-floor fits
You for the horrible surprise
That you receive with startled eyes
When they are playing forfeits!

sweet eighteen,
The horse that died in awful agony,
Great India—Where the sky at noon

The shapely legs that Shakespeare—
might—have had.
The way those breeches—fitted—or

The jokes that  every year make us

The waiting round to see just what

The luxuries of college—and the vase
That broke each night—some newly

The slight mix up twix laughter and

Oh, Great are Allah, and the Christmas plays!

SORROWS OF SATAN
The flames of hell are feeling blue
And Lucifer is out of Date.
Men sin not as they used to do
The flames of Hell are feeling Blue.
The Devils say " 'Tis damned but true
The mob is at the golden gate,"
The flames of hell are feeling blue
And Lucifer is out of Date.

—Though sorely tempted to
Eat it myself, 'tis true—
This all-day sucker.
Green with a splash of red,
As though some heart had bled
Over a lettuce-bed,
This all-day sucker.
Yet, if you come not, dear,
You're out of luck,  I fear;
Toot sweet will disappear
This all-day sucker.
A   NEW  SCHOLARSHIP.
A scholarship worth $1,000.00 is now
open to University women of Canada.
This scholarship, offered by the Canadian Federation of University Women, and known as the Travelling
Scholarship, should be of particular
interest to the women grads of the
U. B. C.
Any woman holding a degree from
a Canadian University is eligible but
preference will be given to those candidates who have completed at least
one or ttwo years of graduate study
and have a definite line of research in
view. The award is based on evidence of character and ability of the
candidate and promise of success in
the fubject to which she is devoting
herself.
Application is to be made by letter
to the Convenor of the Scholarship
Committee, Mrs. Duncan B. Gillies, 41
Dinnick Crescent, Toronto, not later
than February 1st. The letter of application should contain an account
of the applicant's educational training and a statement in full of the
plan of study or research she intends
to pursue. This information should
be accompanied by a written statement from the President of the University to the effect that the candidate is approved.
The choice of the University at
which the successful candidate shall
] ursue her study or research work is
left to the Committee of Selection in
consultation with the candidate.
All those interested may receive
further information from the Registrar of the U. B. C.

And she said, "Pa won't let me go."
I  sought  her  Pa  respectfully—
"I asked Mae to the dance with me."
He smiled.    "I kind of think maybe
She wants to go with Bill, you
know."

And she said, "Pa won't let me go."
LETTERS  CLUB
The Letters Club held one of its
most enjoyable meetings this session,
at the home of Dr. S. D. Scott on
Tuesday night. The subject of discussion, "English Criticism since 1860"
was ably handled in papers by Mr.
Gordon Kirkpatrick and Miss Lillian
Cowdell, the former dealing with Rus-
kin and Arnold and the latter with
Pater and Wilde. The views on criticism of Arnold and Wilde in particular gave rise to an animated discussion.
HISTORICAL   SOCIETY.
Two very interesting papers were
read at a meeting of the Historical
Society held at the home of Mr.
Robie Reed. Mr. John R. McKee read
a well developed paper on "Irreden-
tism" and Mr. Yonemura, in his paper,
discussed the "Internal and Economic
Condition of Italy since the War." The
Society was fortunate in being able
to obtain some first hand information
on the latter subject from Dr. A. F.
B. Clark,' who spent some time in
Italy  this  summer.
"I   WANT   THE   MOON"
I want the moon.    It may seem queer
—Grown-ups are commonly immune
To such complaints—Pierrot, my dear,
I want the moon.
i
Don't stand and gape, you silly prune!
But get a move-on, for I fear
Somebody else will get it soon.
I own it isn't very clear
Why   I   should   crave   this   special
boon,
But all ihe poets do it here
—I want the moon.

Oh Girls, Listen!
(Men, pass this up—it's a private
letter). Say, girls and the girls'
mothers (all the mothers are girls
nowadays), d'ye mind Harry
Lauder's song, "All the lassies
will be loving all the laddies, the
laddies that fought and won"?
And so they should, and you'll be
wanting to send Harry and Bill
and Charlie and Andy a little
Christmas gift, a token of your
love and goodwill. Now, girls,
it's gonna' be the easiest thing on
earth to do this if you go to
Bruce's, for he's got the dandiest
range of Shirts and Ties and
Socks and things that ever your
lovely eyes gazed upon. And wait
a minute—you'll not need much
money. There are Shirts of most
exquisite design and Ties with an
artist's soul in them; dainty
comfy Socks and things. I don't
know the right words, but you'll
speak them when you see them.
And when the boys get them
they'll be poets and write such
glorious letters. I know they will.
Come in the morn.
Yours  for  thrift,
