More Promising
Mayor Favors U.B.C. as Alternative
Champions to Drop
Three Members
From Team
Back home after a journey covering
more than 20,000 miles, members of
the Senior "A" women's basketball
team of the University of British
Columbia, official champions of the
World, are once mote settling doyvn
to the task of passing the Christmas
exams. To the girls the trip yvas a
huge success despite the fact that
three quarters of the time was spent
In travelling. Leaving Vancouver
late in August the team reached
Prague a few days before the opening
of the Women's Olympiad. Officials
of the meet greeted tbe Varsity squad
at the station and announced that the
Basketball competition which was
considered the most important part
of the programme was to be the final
event. The Varsity squad was given
a bye into the finals while the European teams held an elimination series
earlier in the summer to determine
the representative, with the result
that on the date of the game the
U.B.C team were scheduled to meet
the French squad under European
rules. The game was played on a
cinder court layed out in the centre
of the Btadium with more than 1(5,000
spectators in the stands, The conditions were entirely new to the Varsity
girls and it was with some difficulty
that they yvere able to use the fast
working combination that was so
much in evidence during the B. C.
playoffs. The trip home was most
successful with stops being mndc in
Berlin, Paris and London.
The squad this fall wiJl laok three
of tbe members that made the trip.
Rene Harris has graduated and will
not be back, yvhile Rettie Tingley is
taking a course in Physical Education
at Toronto, and Flo Carlisle is remaining in the East.
Unless Premier S. F. Tolmie recedes from his position regarding the Kitsilano Indian reserve
it appears that a stadium will shortly be erected on the University
campus. Mayor W. H. Malkln favors
the varsity site as an alternative if
the Indian Reserve cannot be secured.
The Provincial Government holds a
junior mortgage on the Reserve property for 8300,00. The Department of
Indian Affairs at Ottawa wants
$400,000 in addition. Since the city
values the land at only $260,000 and
since neither Victoria nor Ottawa
show any signs of reducing their demands, the prospects for a Varsity
stadium are bright indeed.
For some time pressure has been
brought to bear on the City Council
by University leaders for campus
stadium. Since the 1932 Canadian
Olympic trials are to be held in Vancouver the University, with the gymnasium at hand, will be a convenient
place for the try-outs.
It is also pointed out that if U.B.C.
is ever to take its proper place in
the collegiate athletic world, a stadium
is a necessity. Varsity athletic heads
are insistent that the present opportunity should be taken advantage of.
They claim that if the University
site is passed up in favor of some
other location for the Olympic trials
it will be many years before money
can be raised to build a U.B.C. stadium.

Froshand Sophs
Sport Gaily
in Pond
The placid waters of the lily
pond were violently disturbed
at noon yesterday when the
Sophomores conducted a wholesale baptism of the Frosh. First
clashing near the Arts squad
the struggling horde moved irresistibly toward the Library
and soon was milling before
that House of Silence. The inhabitants of the place, thus
rudely disturbed, crowded the
windows to stare at the amazing sight, while a throng of
spectators stood on the terraces
above.
The battlefield presented a
stirring spectacle as the Sophomore stalwarts, stripped to
their shirts, grappled with the
green-lidded forces of the Frosh.
Splash after splash sounded
above the shouts of conflict as
hapless combatants by the dozen
were hurled into the troubled
waters. Some swam aimlessly
about and others waded dazedly
around and around, making wild
clutches at lily-pads and ornamental frogs that they mistook
for lost berets. Freshmen, however, were not the only ones
actually engaged in the water
sports, for great numbers of
drenched Sophs were observed
iu the drink or shaking themselves on the grateful lawn.
The omnipresent press photographer was right on the Job,
always in the zones of greatest
danger, as he moved in the van
of the conflict to the scene of
wholesale ducking. He stood
there in an exposed position,
spray from the centre of activities rolling heedless off his
gown, and he all the while snapping, snapping, snapping with
his little camera. As a result
of his devotion to duty, actual
pictures of these remarkable
events may soon be available to
illustrate them and to preserve
them for posterity.

Ilie year. New members chosen from
the applications received were Margaret
Muirhead, Mary Fnllis, Douglas Fraser
and Lawrence (ircig.
Luigi Pirandello was declared a modern
European literary genius as yet singularly unknown on this continent in a
paper yvritten by Jean Telford. "During the first fifty vonrs he bas been known
only for his novels and chiefly as a humorist, but the past twelve years have seen
a much wider recognition of his dramas."
"His characters torment themselves
with philosophical speculation, us dees
their author. In his mind there is forever a duel bet ween illusion and reality,
Human logic, lie feels, is only a blind
to the ultimate truth that he seeks.
Therefore he docs all in his power to
shape our faith in the obvious and the
conventional. He shows the real but
secret personality of his character, in
conflict with the attitude life has forced
upon them, He examines tlie world behind its masks"
Pirandello's novels, illustrating "his
complicated personality and abnormal
psychology" were dealt wilh by the
paper and his short stories were given
treatment. The latter "serve as a medium for his philosophy of the individual,"
and his "air of cynicism is like an armour
donned to protect his sensitiveness."
The writer's dramas, however, received most attention. His ihctuc. show
startling originality, and "he is able lo
mix farce, comedy and tnclodiiiiiia, niu|
even to treat the triangle problem from
a novel point of view."
The problem I hut obsesses Pirandello
was said to be his conception of man's
complex personality, "lie believes that
Ihe individual is made up of many selves,
each different, and that one has a different   personality  for  each  individuality."
ln the discussion that folloyved this
outstanding Italian literary figure was
discussed in relation to Shaw anil other
contemporaries, and Professor Wood was
able to supplement tlie paper on several
points of interest
No Exchange System
Functions in Europe,
Says English Visitor
Overseas Student Unions Outlined
TOUR INC Canada in the interests of
the National Union of Students of
England and Wales, lveson S.
Macadam of London, England, visited
the U. U. C. campus early in the week.
"The exchange system aa adopted in
Canada is unknown in Europe," said
Mr. Macadam, in a special interview to
the "Ubyssey." The corresponding function of the N. U. 8. and the continental
organizations affiliated with the C. I. E.
(Confederation Internationale des Etu-
deanU) is to organise travel groups that
tour Europe; exchange of students between families during vacation; and an
arrangement by which foreign students
attending certain universities are exempt
from fees.
Of these, the most important are the
travel groups by which thousands of
students tour Europe annually by ar*
rangement with the various goverontante,
reduced railway fares and reduced visa
charges have been secured. The student
bodies of the universities extend hospitality to the visitors, who are identified
by cards issued by their own university.
The arrangement for tuition free of
charge was to accommodate language
honor students who must spend at least
two seasons abroad.
Few travel groups visit Canada owing
to the expense. In the past, harvest
parties have been sent out but will probably be discontinued due to the unemployment situation.
The N. U. 8. also supervises tours to
the winter sports in Switzerland aud
sponsors the competition of British ice
hockey and other teams in the annual
games.
In England and Wales (Scotland has
a separate body) the N. U. S. maintains
an efficient organization. The hearl-
quurters in London, in addition to carrying on the secretarial work, publishes a
magazine three times a year, and issues
informative pamphlets on its activities.
TORONTO COED DESCRIBES
FORMER ALMA MATER
Miss Catherine Fish from University College at Toronto, is taking her
third year at the University of British Columbia. U.B.C. impressed her
as younger, nt-yver than her own Alma
Mater.
While the Western University has
limitless possibilities, the Eastern one
has, she feels, more dignity, more
atmosphere on the campus. Discipline
plays a larger part; regulations as to
what shall be worn in class-rooms and
what conduct shall be pursued in halls
are more strictly enforce—especially
as regards smoking.
The Students' Christian Movement,
or the Students' Christian Association,
plays a much larger part in campus
life in Toronto. There are many divisions, groups which study the arts
and letters. Men and women are not
associated in these societies but each
have their own groups. The Students'
Council is composed of a joint executive of men and women representatives,
The University of Toronto is nearly
four times the size of our own, having
a registration of about six thousand
to our own of almost two thousand.
Thero are many more Faculties,—
Music, Medicine and Dentistry being
three which have not been established
here. The University is also affiliated
with the gigantic Royal Ontario
Museum, which contains articles of
ancient and modern interest. The
famous Hart House, founded by Hon.
Vincent Maasoy, is also a feature of
the University. It contains rending
rooms, music rooms, a theatre and
library.

WE CAN LOSE NOTHING
The suggestion that dances be held in the middle of the
week rather than on Friday was advanced in these columns last
year. We again put forward the picture of an athlete trying to
play a game on the Saturday following a party. This "morning-
after-the-nlght-before" appearance is seen all too often in members of U.B.C. teams.
The number playing on regular athletic teams constitutes
a considerable proportion of the student body, both men and
women. A system which forces this relatively important group
into either exhausting activity or social obscurity is fair neither
to the student nor to the University. The only reason Friday
dances are persisted in is found in an outgrown custom still
clinging to us from our public school days when any function on
a "school night" was frowned upon. Are we to be shackled by
such childish relics?
The President of the A.M.S. may reply that this will involve
changing the Constitution. Alright, we answer, change it. It
is not necessary to call a special meeting for the purpose. At
any regular meeting the proposal could be presented to the students and acted upon. In view of the facts surely there is no
alternative.
KLA-HOWYAH ONCE AGAIN
It is customary at this time to welcome the freshmen with
the traditional Chinook phrase. It is appropriate also that cordial greetings be extended to another class of newcomers, namely,
the lately arrived members of the faculty, as well as to Miss
Smith, assistant librarian who replaces MissfBateson.
To break old friendships and associations is not easy. Compared to the congenial atmosphere of the colleges which some
of the new professors have left the rawness of the University of
British Columbia may seem rather forbidding. We can, only
hope that this impression, where it exists, will quickly thaw as
acquaintance with the faculty and students replaces strangeness.
Counted among our best friends are professors who have
joined U.B.C. in the last year or two. It is expected that similar
and equally valuable contacts may be established with the latest
additions to the faculty.
CONCERNING BEING INTERESTING
A new attitude will be needed this year on the part of
the two-fold audience of writers and readers of the Literary
Supplement. Through this department much excellent work has
been done in the past. For writers, it has been a means of self-
expression, a source of pride and interest. For readers, it has
sought to provide something really worth reading.
The Little Theatre, at its opening performance a short time
ago, declared a purpose which seems similar to our own in years
past;—"Some plays are written and acted to make you laugh,"
it was said. "We propose to give you plays that make you
think." A very laudable purpose, surely; why was it that some
of the lighter-hearted of that polite audience moaned softly to
themselves and wondered how they would last the evening?
Don't they want to think? query the surprised nnd well-
intentioned actors, Don't they want to think? echo the distracted editors of a laboriously written, carelessly read Literary
Supplement. Ot course they do; what they don't want to do is
to be bored by the incomprehensible offerings which have all to
often been thrust at them in the guise of intellectual and refined
entertainment. No; what our Little Theatre audience, and what
our university student readers want is bright, sparkling, interesting stuff.   Otherwise they wouldn't be with us at all.
So this is the new aim of the Literary Supplement—to
write something that is capable of being read with enjoyment
by those who only read;;—not because it is part of the duties
of a student—not because it is an intellectual task to be performed—but because it is interesting.   .
That is one function of the Literary Supplement of a University paper. But there is another function; and, as I think, a
more important one. It is to serve as a medium of self-expression
for student-writers. And it has so served, very faithfully, up to
now. Such writing has been wonderful practise in controlling
and defeating "The Wild Boy," who is the bane of every writer's
life. "The Wild Boy" is the name some people give to the quitting spirit; the impulse that whispers, "It's good enough to get
by," or "Just leave it for now—you're tired out," or "Oh, you
might as well stop, you're no good anyhow." It is another name
for Inertia, than which there is no worse bedevilment in the life
of artist people. The Literary Supplement, by just coming out
every so often, has encouraged and spurred writers who might
otherwise have "let it go."
This year the Literary Supplement wants to do something
more. There are going to be other spurs to urge forward your
particular Pegasus. We are hoping that there will be rewards
and largess for the most imaginative poem, the most interesting story, the most brilliant essay.
There will be further innovations. What was heretofore a
publication consisting wholly of the work of students, will now
introduce certain professionals, masters of the arts, who will
tell us just what things are about in the artistic world to-day.
We are hoping that the Literary Supplement will do three things
for student writers; open to them hospitable doors where their
work will be admitted gladly; interest and inspire and improve
them in that work through comparison with their contemporaries and advice* from saumurai; and tangibly reward and encourage them by prizes and commendations.

WINDMILL-TILTING
There is no sadder exhibition than that
of a great mind going ofT the deep end.
Compassion and the censorial blue pencil
of tho Hon, Kditor-in-Chiof forbid me
to sny much more. Besides, one must
leave plenty for official editorial utterances.
1 mure! to see the "I'byssey" depart
from its former considered policy uud
dig up the cadavei of the "militarist-
pacifist" controversy.
It is a i'0-hiish of an oft-told tide.
The whole vociferous lievy of sentimental pacifists who from time lo time
have mouthed banalities upon the subject seem to labor under the awful Im»-
u'ef that the sight of a banoyet rouses
murder lust in the average human being.
It is all reminiscent of I'ickwick's Fat
Boy with his statement, "I wants to
make   your   flefh   creep."
1 do not condemn these idealists, ln
the last war they enlisted by thousands
and loudly chanted, "Make the world
safe for democracy," "Remember bel-
gium," and the like.
Let us have one last dig at my friend,
the Editor. (Incidentally his suggestion
of an O. T. C. band is a good one.) I
personally consider tbat his urticle (Vols.
1 to 4 inclusive) is a perfect example of
the art of praising with faint damns.
I suggest that since membership in the
corps is voluntary, that its opponents
should let it go to damnation in its own
way, even as I do.
* * *
Camouflage
The so-called Honor System has
fallen into such universal disrepute
that it is almost time for columnists
and their ilk to take up arms on its
behalf. Almost time but not quite.
Let us have one more dig at the discredited wreck.
First there is the joke that has
been travelling back and forth between College Humor and the student
papers.
1st Student: "How did the Honor
System work at your university?"
2nd Student: "Fine. Until some
darn sneak went and told on us."
It is our suggestion that tbe Honor
System be called by its proper name
in this college. To wit—"Laissez
faire" or in other words—"Let 'er
rip."
Surely the student body is "modern"
enough and independent enough not
to seek to hide behind a sham. If, as
is the popular conviction, the manner
in which a student conducts himself
is nobody's business, let us admit it.
The result would be the same and the
student body would have acquired at
least the merit of consistency.
Perhaps it might be advisable even
to make student conduct somebody's
business and to return to the Marshal
System. But I fear that such a step
yvould shock the democratic dogma of
our ardent and, in this respect, noble-
minded young idealists.
O HORROR, HORROR!
Despite apprehensions tli.it I may lose
half my readers (supposing then- he more
than one) if I do indulge in too much
.shimming, I really cannot overlook the-
er-lucubrution "Fun and Fundamentals"
that appealed in the last issue of this
venerable journal.
Can it be that Hunt borne has been reincarnated?
In spite of the verse at the end, I am
positive that the stuff is written by a
poet, for only a poet could mistake a
figure-head near Lumberman's Arch for
a keel at Brockton Point. Poetic license?
Well, what about the statement about
seeing the ferry-boat dock from Brockton Point?
No doubt mere commonplace people
in the Park have also heard the wind
laughing (heh, heh) and got their bearings slightly mixed; but not iu the daytime. It seems that one advantage nf
being a poet is that you do not have a
bang-over the next morning. Yet I
wonder if n poetic license is us good us
an ordinary permit.

In the September issue of the "Canadian Forum" appeared a rather scanty
but nevertheless pithy article from the
pen of Jean Burton ubout Western Canadian Universities. 1 am not in a position
to judge the aptness of her conclusions regarding the prairie universities but 1
consider Ihat her remarks concerning
the U.B.C. contained more trill It than
I mm! try.
One statement to the effect that it is
the "mission" of Ihe l.B.C. "lo turn
out ornaments of society" may |tcrhaps
shock seriouH-minded mcmlters of both
the student body and the faculty. The
idea that the type of education with
which the majority of undergraduates
here are innoculuted is practically without merchantable value up'tears heresy
to those who have not tried to utilize it
as a ticket of admittance to the business
world. To others the realization thai
this college actually possesses a mission
will come as a bright light in the midst
of darkness. Mr*. Burton's opinion may
be taken as correct if it is remembered
tbat even gargoyles are included in the
category of "ornaments."
Mrs. Burton goes on to say that the
U.B.C. "will certainly remain the most
light hearted of the three yvestern colleges; but as for that, if a university
cannot educate its students, it should
endeavor to teach them to laugh in the
right places."
(Speech, speech, Mr.  F.taoin.)
As regards student governemnt, we
are told that in Western Canadian Universities it is quite harmless. "The
students never want to do anything to
which the faculty objects, and as long as
this is so, they are perfectly welcome to
go on making regulations for each other
on everything under the sun. It keeps
them out of mischief.''
All quiet in the nursery!
Here is her analysis of co-education.
"Socially women yvill be freeest at U.B.C.
because (ui Vancouver is Vancouver.
(b) There is no women's residence as
yet, and the long period without one
yvill leave a tradition even yvhen it is
provided." This seems very true, es-
jjeciully the first purt.
She continues: "As long us the lives
of the women students continue to be
governed by those of their own sex the
regulations will not be less insulting
than at present, and there yvill be no
attempt at equality of treatment with
the men students. Senior year women,
sitting in judgment on tho girl yvho did
not get in until ten minutes past eleven
are tasting the first joys of belonging to
the established order, and aro finding
them sweet. And no whole-hearted protest will be made by the juniors, since in
due time they will bo seniors too."
U.B.C.  women suffer under their own
particular system  of impertinent   regnla-;
lions
lu re scholarship. " In tlio big ioek-
candy mountain of tin- educator's dissipated dream, there would lie studentH
at a university. A student will be tolerated at any Western Canadian University. In any one of thein he can gut all
he needs, quite unmolested; the libraries
are adequate. He may or lie may not
get much help from the heads of his
particular Department, he may not have
many people to talk to, and he may
sntTer from lack of competition, in that
his career will be either too easy a walkover for his spiritual health, or that on
the other hand, he may never take
the trouble to make himself knoyvn at
all. But these defects are easily remediable  after  graduation."
"To say that a student will be tolerated
is not to say that he yvill be encouraged;
but   as  far  as  his  part  in   the  general
social life of the university, the lecture
system, the examination system and tho
1 rest   are concerned,  as  much  good   will

Chapter Two
Leaving the Tamale Den by the
back door, after passing through the
kitchen among closely barred cages
from which peered the frightened
faces of young tamalcs awaiting their
awful fate, we emerged into a deserted
alley.
"This way," whispered Arnold Anderson, grasping my arm and steering me clown the narrow lane.
We groped for about fifty yards
and suddenly stepped forth into the
main street. As we stood blinking
on the kerb, u large sedan swerved in
from the center of the road and passed
within a few feet of us. I caught a
glimpse of a delicately featured face of
great beauty at one of the windows,
and a rose fell at my feet as the car
glided past. I stopped to pick up the
flower and heard something whistle
past my head and thud against an
adjacent telegraph pole. Anderson
dashed forward as a dark figure
darted across the street and disappeared into the crowd.
I turned to the post. There, still
quivering from the force of its flight,
an oriental dagger stuck imbedded in
the wood. As I examined the weapon,
Anderson returned.
"A Wing Jing,"    he    pronounced.
"Chang Suey's ancestral weapon."
Chapter Three
For the next two days as I sat in
the lecture rooms, nightmares of
Chang Suey haunted my dreams.
What fiendish purpose now dominated   that  warped mind?    Warped,
but so   brilliant  that   other   intelligences seemed infantile   beside   it—
excepting, of course, the great brain
of Arnold Anderson, the two-hundred I
and fifty dollar a year power behind '
Council.    That   Chang   Suey   would j
embark  on  no ordinary    scheme    I'
well  knew.    His plans   always   had j
been so colossal in their inception, so i
world-shaking in their execution, and
had threatened to be unparalleled in
their success.    Never in all its ages
had civilization bred such an all-pervading danger    in    its    midst.    The
crucial moment in the history of the
world was at hand, and its safety depended   upon   Arnold   Anderson   and
me.
Cogitating endlessly upon my
terrible responsibility I determined to
walk from the campus into Sasamat.
I passed the bus stand where acres of
Freshmen fought furiously to be first
to get home to momma after school.
I strolled slowly on, immersed in
thought, paying no heed to the cars
that whizzed or puffed along the road.
I even forgot to try to bum a lift.
I had just, passed the Cables when
a long low limousine pulled up to the
kerb beside me. I turned and saw
the lady who had saved my life by
tossing me a rose outside the Tamale
Den.
"Wanta lift?" she breathed.
"Betcha life," I fired back, and
opened the door. Strong hands seized
me and dragged me in. A cloth, soaked
in some powerful anaesthetic, was
thrust over my face. For a few moments I struggled and then faded out.

FUN AND FUNDAMENTALS
Let no one tell me that the days of
necromancy are dead; that the times
are passed for charms and spells and enchantments. I know better. What
sceptic shall tell me thut. it is a romantically impossible happening that a whole
city be stricken into silence, yea, even
in a single night? Let him attend to
what follows:
It was a hasy, quiet morning in the
little French village of Oradoui-Sur-
Vayres. The honest citizens flocked, as
was their wont, to the single inn the little
town boasted, to take their morning
draught of good French wine. Everything was as usual: the stout civilians
SMSlp'ted over their tankards with all
icir accustomed solid cheer. Then au
untoward thing occurred; old Jean I*-
brun, smoothest chatterer of them all,
began to stutter and hesitate In his s|>ecch.
Others quickly began to follow suit, until
firesenlly the whole company fell into
ncohercnt (lesticulations. Thn inn-koe|ter,
thinking it over early in the clay for such
a state of apparent intoxication to prevail, attempted to ask what was tbe
matter; be found, to his groat fear and
wonder, that he could not move his tongue, and at each attempt, he and all his
guests were less success!ul iu their efforts
verbally to communicate with one another. Then the good wives of the town
began to hurry from their tasks, totally
dumb, and, as may well be imagined,
extremely agitated. The children ran
out of school, stuttering feeble astonishment at their parents' plight. By evening
of that unhappy day the whole town was

liy sceptic, are you also silenced by
thls apparently super-natural, yet undoubtedly authentic state of affairs?
Not he I "Impossible phenomenal Muddle-brained dreaming! 1 hear him ejaculating. But wait. Doctors and scientists from all over the country were
rushed to the spot; swiftly they examined
air, food, wine, everything. Thoy found
that a quantity of arsenic had been
placed in the wine which would paralyse
the tongues of the drinkers; the civilians
of Oradour being all moderate wine-
bibbers, were consequently struck with
dumbness. And lot for three months
they existed in forced silence, until, the
potency of the spell, or the evil effects of
the arsenic gradually wearing off, the
village plunged into violent verbal recriminations of the sorcere, und immediate law-suits against the same, who
is still unknown. Now, sceptic, tell mu

To the Members of the Men'B Undergradute

Now that Doug. Pollock has resigned, I feel
that It is my duty to my supporters and to
myself to run again for the position of President of the Men's Undergraduate Society.
Although defeated last spring, t do not believe that my platform had anything to do
with the matter, Tne men of the University
wanted Pollock, rather than myself, so Doug,
was elected. This may be seen by the fact
that Doug had no platform.
The number of candidates in the field shows
that an Interest is being taken In thla election.
I can only hope that each candidate has more
than a handful of supporters so that the polls
next Tuesday will show that all who are eligible to vote have expressed their opinion so
thnt the man elected will feel assured that
he has a real majority behind him.
I wish to thank my old campaigners and
any new recruits who are backing me (or the
position.

10,248 students to date registered for
work in the University this fall semester, according to Thomas B. Steel,
recorder of the faculties. This figure
shows an increase of 267 students
over the number registered at this

The historical tug-uf-war staged
annually on Rogers Held brought final
triumph to the well-known green in
the frosh-soph supremacy contest
stuged Saturday morning. The contest throughout was characterized by
close and strenuous rivalry, with each
class winning altornate events. The
final account gave the sophomores iwg
and the freshmen three points. Several hundred students, in which the
green caps of the frosh were predominant, lent vigorous vocal support to
both teams.
BERKELEY—An analysis of the
registration lists for the University
of California during the past year,
just completed by the recorder of faculties. T. B. Steel, reveals that students gathered on the campus from
every county but one in California,
every state in the United States except three, and from 37 foreign countries.
SOUTHERN CALIF. DAILY—
For the benefit of those freshman
women who are unacquainted with the
ruling regarding armbands, this and
other freshman traditions are reprinted :
1—Freshman women wear a green
armband above the elbow on the left
arm, this ruling being enforced for a
specified length of time by the Trojan
Amazons.
2—Freshmen do not use the senior
bench or walks of the Administration
building and Old College.
.'!--Freshmen attend chapel every i
day and sit in the balconies only.
•I- No "prep" or high school jewel- j
■■ y, monograms, or sweaters are worn I
by any university student. (The Cali-1
fornia Scholarship federation pin and ,
the Ephibian ring nre exceptions to !
this  rule.)

freshman  handbook  or "bible" while ,
on campus. j
6—Freshmen do not park their j
automobiles on University avenue.       j
WASHINGTON EVERGREEN—        i
"An hour a day in the gymnasium
makes better students," states J. Fred
(Doc)   Bohler,  director   of   athletics
and head of   the   physical   education
department at Washington State col- j
lege.   "We endeavor to make physical j
training educational  by teaching the '
fundamentals  of  all   popular   sports.
We also guard against overdoing."
Nearly all the men enrolled at
Washington State college participate
in either intramural or mass athletics,
vepoivs   Bohler.
Basketball, track ami baseball proved   the   most   popular    activities    last i
year.    These were followed liy volleyball,  horseshoes, cross-country, hand- ;
ball,   swimming,  tennis,  golf,   boxing, i
wrestling and fencing.
Students and faculty at Washington
Stat.- college are planning one of the
largest Horn, coming celebrations in
the history of the school, activities
beginning Friday evening and lasting
until late Saturday night, October 11.
The classic of the week-end will b?
the game yvith the University of

WASHINGTON EVERGREEN—
Over four-fifths of the men enrolled at Washington State are either
wholly or partly self-supporting, according to figures recently released
from the office of the Y. M. C. A.
Nearly 85 per cent, of the masculine
students are earning from one-fourth
to all of their college expenses.
That the co-eds also are showing
industry and resourcefulness is indicated by the fact that 17 per cent, of
the 1000 women enrolled are entirely
self-supporting. A total of 37 per
cent earn at least a fourth of their
expense money. Many of the students
remain out of school a semester, Increasing their earnings through concentrated work. Others work "off
and on" during the summer vacation,
or throughout the school year. According to the questionaire circulated
among Washington State students, 35
various occupations served as a means
for earning college money.
Grade records show that self-supporting students often rank among
the highest, and are frequently the
most active in campus affairs, ft has
heen found, however, that students
attempting to devote too many houn
to outside work during the school term
meet many difficulties preventing them
from doing justice to either school
or outside work.
WILLAMETTE UNIVERSITY —
The result of the Willamette student
body elections was somewhat unusual
in the fact that the women carried
off more of the honors than has been
customary in the past Miss Dorothy
Pemberton,'31, was the only candidate for editor of the Collegian,
campus weekly, and Miss Helen Stiles,
'32, was elected to the editorship of
the 1931 Wallulah, the yearbook.
This is the first time for a number of
years that either of these positions
has been held by a woman.
IDAHO ARGONAUT—
After playing their tough 1930
schedule of 10 games, the University
of Idaho Vandals will journey halfway across the Pacific to the Hawaiian Islands, during the Christmas holidays, to meet the University of
Hawaii team and the Honolulu All-
Stars.
George E. Hornton, graduate manager, has made final sailing arrangements. The Vandals will sail on the
Madson liner Madsonia, from San
Francisco December 17, and will return on tho same ship January 7.
They will arrive in Honolulu harbor
the morning of December 24, and will
play their first game Christmas day.
The trip will be the longest one
ever taken by an Idaho team, It will
mark an Idaho football team's first
appearance in the Islands.
S. C. DAILY TROJAN—
Tyvo neyv departments in aviation
have been created this year at S. C,
one a chair of commercial aviation In
the College of Commerce and Business Administration, the other a chair
of Aeronautical engineering in the
College of Engineering. An insistent
demand on the part of those interested in aviation for training in preparation for the field of aeronautics led
to the establishment of the two depart incuts.
Tiiking a further step in expanding
its already international scope, the
School of Philosophy of the university
has scheduled a course in Chinese
civilization given by D. Willard Lyon,
vbiting professor in the university
for one year.

SUPPLEMENT THREATENED
BY LITERARY TYEE
Up to now it has been the
custom of the Literary Supplement to print only the initials
of its contributors. As a new issue is coming out in a short
time, the editor ha* been considering such details with care.
Is it belter to publish work with
full name and credit, or with
initials only, thus keeping the
contributor's name and his ability more or less secret? We
would like the opinion of contributors on this matter, and invite correspondence concerning
it. Do you prefer initials or
ful! name to an article or poem
or story, and why? The best
letters on either side of this
controversy will be published in
the first Literary Supplement.

Record Homecoming
Expansions in College Noted
Students and faculty at Washington State college are planning one of
the largest Homecoming celebrations
in the history of the school, activities
beginning Friday evening and lasting
until late Saturday night, October 11.
The classic of the week-end will be
the game with the University of
Southern California on Saturday af*
ternoon.
Friday evening the students will be
joined by the alums in a gigantic pep
rally, with a bonfire and noise parade.
A program of collegiate entertainment composed of music, skits, veils,
pep talks by coaches and prominent
alumni will be glvon In the auditorium. The Moroni Olslen company
will present "The Ship," and a dance
Is scheduled at the Green Lantern.
Additional courses in horticulture,
chemistry and physical training, as
well m in several other departments,
are being promised graduate students
at the State college this fall, according to F. L. Pickett, dean of the graduate school.
The graduate school was established
as a distinct division of the college in
1922, and since that time has expanded rapidly. Over 800 advanced
degrees have been conferred. Dean
Pikett declared that work for graduate
credit is now being given in the college of agriculture, home economics,
mechanical arts and engineerings,
sciences and arts, veterinary medicine, and in the schools of education,
mines and geology, music and fine
arts, and pharmacy. The physical
education and military departments
also offer additional work beyond the
four-yoar courses,.
Influence of U. of C.
It Far Reaching
A total of 282 extension classes will
be opened in southern California during the coming two weeks by the
Extension Division of the University
of California. Of this number, 161
classes will be opened in Los Angeles,
34 in Long Beach, 36 in Pasadena, 23
in San Diego and 28 in other cities
of the southland.
Enrolment in the fall classes is expected to exceed materially the registration in the fall classes a year ago,
according to Miss Margaret Wotton,
executive secretary. Several new Instructors have been added to the faculty and many new courses will be
offered. The total enrolment for the
school year of 1929-30 was 17,160,
Miss Wotton announces, and it Is believed this year, because of the number of inquiries, that the registration
will exceed 20,000.
SPIRIT
That hardy perennial, "About
Town," has again appeared
crammed with ineffable blurbs
concerning U.B.C. Last year,
upon a similar occasion, I dealt
with the thing in fairly indignant terms but apparently without effect. It seems I was mistaken in assuming that ths
pseudo-bohemian stylye written
down for the local hausfrauen
is considered acceptable by university co-eds, (Ood help them).
My mistake. The editors of
"About Town" express fear that
they will receive their "semiannual panning in the 'Ubyssey'." I suggest it is trepann-
ning that they need.

Novel Agriculture
Attempted at Calif.
Heating soil by electricity to force
truck crops for early markets is to
be tried by the University of California College of Agriculture, in cooperation with the California Committee on the Relation of Electricity
to Agriculture. Announcement of the
experiment is made by J. R. Taver-
netti, field agent for the committee,
whose offices are in the Division
of Agricultural Engineering at the
Branch of the College of Agriculture
here.
Co-operating with Tavemettl In the
experiment are Dr. H. A. Jones, head
of the Division of Truck Crops, and
Prof. B. D. Moses of the Division of
Agricultural Engineering. It is expected that the Division of Soil Technology also will participate in the
experiment to determine what effect,
if any, the electricity bas on the soil,
Try Cucumber First
The first experiment will be made
in cold frames with cucumbers, to
determine if they can be forced three
or four weeks in advance of those
planted in tbe regular way. Heating
elements will be placed in the soil
and a careful record will be kept of
the temperatures maintained and tbe
current consumed.
"We have no idea that heating the
soil will be economically practical for
field crops," says Tavernetti. "But
in the case of some vegetables which
command high prices in advance of
the season, it probably will make returns on the investment. The amount
of current consumed probably will not
be large and while the installation
cost would not be negligible, the extra
price paid for the produce should more
than compensate the grower, we believe."

A meeting of the Law Club will be held

•KM-tcr. have not the slightest doubt as
lo the ability of the Blue and (lold smiml.
It has boon pointed out Ihat the Tigers
admittedly played a bet tar Kama under

Varsity will have In Gavin Dirom,
