Harmony and Co-operation
Noted Among B. C. Students
By Student Froni Alberta
H. Prevey—Alberta Exchange student gives views on U.B.C.
student life—Like spirit and Initiative of local students.
"At U. B. C. there is a strong spirit of co-operation among
the students," is the first impression of Harry Prevey, the exchange student from Alberta, as stated in an interview yesterday.
When asked about calendar regulations at Alberta, as compared with U. B. C., he said that there Is a great difference between the two. At Alberta they have what is known as the
Faculty Advisory system. This is an arrangement whereby
each freshman is assigned to a faculty advisor who gives him
advice on the courses to take, and maps out his whole University career. Another difference is that there ia no credit system
there, your requirement for a degree are so many courses instead of so many units.
This is mainly due to the residences
on the campus for bath men and women, and the near-by residential district But at U. B. C. there le a strong
spirit of co-operation among atudenta,
this being evidenced by the alacrity
with which they built their Gymnasium and Stadium. The Qym. project
was turned down by Alberta atudenta
last year, but I personally bope that
it will be taken up in the near future.
Harry Prevey is registered in Science '34. At Alberta he was prominent In the Musical Club and weild-
ed the goal-tender's stick for the Engineering Ice Hockey team. If he had
not come to U. B. C. he would have
been secretary of the Mathematics
Club.  To make himself fool more at

Student Government is very similar, hi fact almost identical in the
two universities, except In the matter
of student discipline. At Alberta a
committee consisting of equal numbers of faculty and students looks
after breaches of the Honor code.
"Fraternities are much younger at
Alberta, being only two years old,"
he continued, "they have onjy been
international frata on the campus for
the last year, and consequently they
do not occupy such a large place in
student life."
"I personally am against initiation
as it Is carried out In both universities," he stated when asked his opinion about the existing initiation ceremonies, although he expressed him-
self as being In favour of some form
of initiation. It is his opinion that
they have a bettor idea than the

Speakers Address
Science Students
On Organization
Highly interesting addresses by
prominent members of the British
Columbia Association of Professional
Engineers featured a meeting of the
Engineering Institute of Canada on
Wednesday. Speakers were-Captain
Wheatley, registrar of the Association, A. S. Gentles of the Dominion
Bridge Co., Dr. Turnbull, and Colonel Letson.
The first speaker was Dr. Turnbull
who gave an introduction to the activities of the Association. In referring to the regulations under which
the Association is operated, he cited
that only members ot the Association
are eligible to practise engineering
in the province, and that a University degree in Applied Science is accepted as equivalent to four years
practical experience. He advised all
men to enroll as student members
in the association upon reaching
third year Applied Science, and added that the way to help Improve
the association was not by criticizing
from the outside, but by becoming
active members, thus working constructively from the inside. He concluded with a welcome to the visitors.
The next speaker, A. S. Gentles,
spoke in more detail about the association. He said that a great deal
of credit for the passing of the Act,
which limits the practise of engineering to university graduates, was
due to Professor Matheson. This Act
he considered to be the most successfully administered one of its type
on the continent, adding that the
percentage of registration of engineers was much higher in British Columbia than that under other systems.
He reminded his audience that the
future members of the association
would be graduates of the University of British Columbia, whose stan-

Council Plans
For Athletes
U. B. C. athletic stock took on nip-
ward bound Monday night when
Council decided In favor of athlete's
Insurance for the admittedly dangerous sports, namely, English and Canadian Rugby and Soccer.
This insurance will cover injury
to the extent of twenty-five dollars.
Although thin sum may seem rather
paltry at a glance, it will prove a
big item in eliminating doctor's bills
altogether from the expenditure
sheet. It is hoped by Council and
heads ot the athletic organizations
that players will go even a step farther in eliminating casultles. By paying two dollar!, they can Insure
themselves for an additional twenty-
five dollars, and it Is estimated that
If every player did take out the ad-'
ditional amount practically ninety
per cent of tiie Injury sustained
could be dealt with by the Insurance
committee. This matter of course
rests entirely with the player. If he*
thinks that he will be fortunate
enough not to sustain fifty dollar's
worth of injury, he need not take
out the policy. A typical case occured
near the end of last season. One of
the players suffered a bruised knee.
Finding that he would be unable to
go on, he called and asked the field
doctor to bandage the ailing Joint.
When the knee healed, he continued
to play. It was a second-string team.
There was no honor, no glory—Just
the knowledge that he was boosting
his Alma Mater. At the end of the
term he received a bill for the bandages applied to his bruised knee;
There are dotens of similar cases.
It ia estimated that there are roughly
250 accidents Incurred In each Varsity year. These accidents are of
course of a minor nature, but it
simply means that each man pays on
tht average 15 tor doctors bills that
could hs avoided,
Council have put forth a plan. For
tw« ekaMare (oaw-mtif of what
would'pay ordinarily), a man can
secure insurance to tiie extent of
fifty dollars. More men would turn
out'for these major sports If they
knew that Varsity was financially
able to handle these doctor bills
which have proved troublesome in the
past. If a player was covered only
by the regular twenty-five dollar
policy and sustained an Injury costing more than that amount, he could
hardly expect Council to pay the additional sum.

Clash Renews
Ancient Feud
The traditional mad scramble between Arts and Science which goes
by the dignified name of battle, took
place yesterday on the campus between rows of screaming Freshettes
t ,hower of anttflue eggs. A preliminary skirmish ocurred on Wednesday, when Arts Introduced a new
and . unwelcome dement Into the
Science common-room in the form
of these same eggs.
It was generally understood that
this was a polite challenge to the
Red Shirts to do their worst, which
invitation was promptly accepted and
answered with a well-organized and
determined raid on the Artsmen's
common-room. A lengthy table, some
chairs and a bewildered Artsman
were among the spoils. The unfortunate martyr to the cause became
the recipient of a fresh coat of red
enamel, after he had .been forced to
shed his habitual raiment. Greatly
elated, his captors paraded the blushing youth through the cafeteria and
out to the Lily Pond, where,a merciful end was put to his suffering.
But Arts had had about enough of
this high-handed treatment.
While thou* enemies were making
the welkin ring with lowly Science
yells, they beat a quick retreat into
the Arts Building, held a council of
war, and stripped for the fray. The
victorious Science force swept into
the building and received the surprise of the day when met by this
vengeful mob. They were evicted
with scant ceremony, and Arts made
their way gleefully to the historic
pond with two Red Shirt captives,
but this purpose was soon perceived,
and the yells of the prisoners brought
their comrades to their aid in short
A free-for-all ensued that did the
hearts of the Arts champions good,
and    effectively   silenced    cries    of
"Boo-Arts!"   which   had   been
sounding  on  all  sides.
Dr. Nicholson
A group of thirty pre-mediwal students and several members of thc
Faculty listened to a very interesting address from Dr. J. A. Nicholson
on Wednesday afternoon. Dr. Nicholson, the former Registrar of McGill,
w;:s introduced by Mr. Stanley W.
Matthews and Prof. Lemuel Robertson, who told the students of the
long fcMor.'atlon Which this Unwcr-
slty ha* had with McGill.
Dr, Nicholson was high inhispraiie
of the students and Faculty of U. B.
C, and said that McGill was always
ready to welcome the ftream of
students of high standard that came
to them from this province.
In outlining the requirements for
entrance to the Faculty of Medicine
at, McGill, the speaker reminded the
students that although they, might
have taken the necessary one year in
Physics and in Biology, and the two
year's in Chemistry, their admission
to the Faculty was by no means cer
tain. He pointed out that the number
entering Medicine at McGill was re
stricted to one hundred per year, and
that unless a student could show
very high standards of attainment,
there was little chance of gaining ad
mission without three years In Arts
at least, "In fact it is desirable, and
more than that it Is In your own in
terests that you take your B. A. de
gree before entering Medicine. This
Is in a large measure true for those
entering Law. As it is there are
around eighty students with the B.A
degree that apply for admission. It is
evident then* that you must have a
B. A. to be absolutely sure of ad
mission to the Faculty of Medicine.'
Dr. Nicholson stressed the importance
of English,- French or German, or
both, and mathematics and Chemistry, to a pre-madlcal course. Naturally Biology and Zoology figured
prominently in any pre-medical
course, but in choosing these subjects, the student should be sure he
wtH b* toe repeal tk^ edsaun at
MoGlll in the prescribed medical
course. For this reason the speaker
suggested that Bacteriology, Biochemistry and Histology be taken In
the Medical school, where they were
taken up from the purely medical
view point. However, Comparative
Anatomy and General Embryology
taken here would lay a foundation
for all future work In Human Anatomy and allied subjects In medicine.
Economics and Philosophy would also
be very useful to a medical student.
With regard to the double degree
of B. Sc, M. D., Dr. Nicholson stated
that this was granted only to students taking all their work In McGill or at the least to anyone taking
two full years there. Because of the
heavy course in Human Anatomy to
the first year of Medicine, it was
Impossible to proceed to Second Year
Medicine on the strength of a B. A.
In response to a question as to this
at Toronto, the speaker explained
that the Toronto course waa six years
and students with a B. A. could proceed to Second Year Medicine, their
actual medical work requiring five
years the same as McGill.
At the conclusion of the meeting
Dr. Nicholson met a number of the
students, and faculty connected with
Medical  Service  of  the  University.
Momentous Issues Raised
At Monday Council Meet;
Appointments Confirmed
Big Brother Movement Sends in Protest.—Insurance Further
Discussed.—Representation at N.F.C.U.S. Brought Up.
Fate in the form of Students' Council decided momentous issues on Monday night. The new editor of the Ubyssey, Wllf
Lee, was appointed on the recommendation of the retiring Ed*
itor, Himie Koshevoy.
The appointment of Frances Lucas, former Literary editor,
and who will be remembered by old-timers as the star of "Town
Hall Tonight," to the position of Senior editor was confirmed,
and the getting under way of the "Totem," so that it would be
on the market by March 1, was discussed.
Students' Council In regard to paid
assistants in the work of administrating the affairs of the student body. It
was. the opinion of Council that this
matter should have more thorough
Investigation before any definite steps
are taken.
The question of insurance was
mauled, over again, and although no
motion was, put, several points were
cleared up: namely, that the Students'
Council, although not legally liable
for accidents to students participating
in games under the name of the University, had nevertheless assumed a
liability up to twenty-five, dollars for
each student participating to the admittedly dangerous sports, English
and Canadian Rugby, and Soccer, and
felt that It was up to each individual
student participating in these sports
to assume an equal liability for his
doctor and hospital bills, otherwise,
they, the Students' Council could net
see their way, except to exceptional
eases to paying any amount over the
first $25 and under $50. Over $50, however, the position of Students' Council is the same as it has always been
the past, namely that-they will
After considerable discussion it was
decided to appoint a committee consisting of council and faculty members, to look into the whole matter of
paid servants of the Alma Mater Society, their duties, and their relations
to Council and the student body to
The wording of the motion dealing
with this Is as follows: That Students'
Council appoint a committee consisting of 2 members of Council, the immediate past-president of the A.M.S.,
two members of Faculty, and the legal adviser of the A.M.S. That this
committee should be Instructed by

A very amusing letter from the
Big Brother and Big Sister Movement
Incorporated was read, asking the U.
B.C. to refrain from using the term
Big Sister in Its campus life. Apparently this organization is o( charitable Intent, and their charter states
that the terms Big Brother or Big Sister are given to this society with the
proviso that only their members can
use them. The secretary was ht-*
structed to write them to tht effect
that we would do our best not to defile their name.
It was decided to present all budgets in tho form of a Grand Budget
for the year, firstly for tho purpose
of simplifying things, and secondly So
that a more concrete estimation of revenue and expenditure could be presented to compact form.
Classes of 32 held a meeting Thursday, to Arts 100, to order to discuss
their valedictory gift to the University. Mr. Ridington, who was askgd
by the president to outline the form
that the gift will take, pointed out
that the library has long had need
of an endowment, and he proposed
that the classes of '32 start a book
endowment fund for the purchase of
books for the library. He suggested
that officers be elected for the purpose of looking after the fund. When
the motion for adopting this plan was
put, it was unanimously carried.
After the motion had been recorded, the president reminded the meeting that.the birthday of Dr. Wes-
brook falls on October 20th. A Wes-
brook memorial service is to be held
on this day, The time of the ceremony has not been definitely set,
but will appear with other details
in a later issue of the Ubyssey.

Possibly the more erudite have observed
that the "Ubyssey" has added several inches to
its length, as well as increasing its girth by a
full column.
These changes presage great improvements
in quantity at least of "copy." They are also
indicative of efforts tremendously accelerated
on the part of the hard-working staff. Processes of reorganisation are being set In mo*
tion, tha like of which have not been experienced by the "Ubyssey" office In many moons.
Tha increased amount of space naturally
calls for additional expatiatlon on reports of
campus doings. Reporters are finding their
work becoming more arduous, as more honor-!
able. Stories nowadays have to be full, accurate, and colorful affairs. Feature work mora
than maintains its ever-Important status, as
five thousand,odd words of "Muck" have to be
turned out every week.
The covering of multifarious class and dub
meetings has become a greater problem also.
Tha executives of the clubs and classes are
herewith requested to leave notice of intended
meetings In the Publications Office la plenty
of time for a reporter to be assigned to cover
them. This will lighten tha duties of the already much-harrassed News Manager. It will
also insure the "meetings of desired publicity.
It might be added that the correspondence
column is always open to expressions of student opinion. Criticisms of any branch of university activity may be offered herein. The
writer's name must be on the letter, but this
will not be printed unless at his request.
The "Ubyssey" has pursued a steadily forward policy ever since its Inauguration. We
hope under the new conditions to further the
avowed purposes df the Publications Board.'
It is typical of self-governed institutions
that the individual will frequently disregard
the welfare of the whole group in an attempt
to further his own immediate interests. Such
a practice invariably reacts to the detriment of
the individual because he is a part of the institution and must necessarily suffer with it in
the long run.
We are not suggesting that any student of
the U.*B. C. would willfully sacrifice the good
of his Alma Mater in a misguided effort to obtain personal gain. We have noticed, however,
,a certain lethargy on the part of students to
perform duties which might be of considerable
benefit to the University as a whole. A case
in point occurs in the lack of evident patronage
accorded to firms which advertise in Varsity
publications. It should be realised that it is not
sufficient merely to buy from the advertiser:
he must be informed that the business is the
result of his advertisement. If students would
remember this fact when making purchases
they would not only assist the Publications
Board but would benefit themselves to no
small extent.
It was suggested editorially in the last issue
of the Ubyssey that the Registrar of the University had at one time made the statement
that an Alma Mater meeting was sufficient excuse for a student to miss a one o'clock lecture.
We have been officially informed that this
statement was never made.
The news that Himie Koshevoy has resigned as Editor-in-Chief of the Publications
Board is very bad news. As reporter, feature
editor, and news manager, he proved himself
a capable journalist and became fam-
Bad ous as one of the chief writers for the
News Muck Page. He had the distinction of
being three times appointed editor.
The first was in the spring of 1930, but he resigned before the next session. Last spring he
was editor during March, and was re-appointed. He enlarged the paper, improved the organization, and seemed auspiciously started on
a successful year.
A journalist from scalp to heel, Himie knew
student life as few do, and his friends are found
in all circles. This is beginning to sound like
an obituary, but what I want to say is that the
Chief will be a serious loss to the Pub, and
that he goes with our best wishes for success
in the city news-paper field.
Wilf Lee, the new editor, has had three
years' experience as reporter, assistant editor,
and associate sports editor. He possesses the
confidence and esteem of his colleagues, and
efficiency is his watchword. All of which augurs well for the "Ubyssey."
Mr. Gerald Stanhope-Barry, late of Oxford
and Freiburg (in Freiburg), and now registered in Education, has lent me a copy of The Oxford Outlook, a journal published three times
a year by a group of Oxford under*
Student graduates. There are two editorials
Journals —one a comprehensive discussion'of
the poet John Donne and the other
on the Russian poet Alexander Blok. There is
a critical treatment of Mr. T. S. Eliot as a
philosopher; a translation of Blok's "The Collapse of Humanism," remarkable for its beautiful, imaginative prose; music, film, and literary
reviews; poetry and short stories.
It is an excellent publication, well written
and interesting, a type of student magazine
that, as far as I know, is non-existent in Canada, although I believe that attempts have been
made in tills direction at Toronto. Quean's
and Dalhousie probably feel adequately represented by the distinguished journals that bear
their names, but these are not undergraduate
enterprises. Alberta Issues Literary Supplements to The Gateway in the form of a small
magazine, and other universities have corresponding Supplements to their papers. McMas-
ter publishes the McMaster Monthly, which
promises well.
Several facts may account for the absence
in Canada of a periodical of the type and quality of The Oxford Outlook. Most of tha universities are small, their cultural background
and tradition Is sketchy, and many who can
write are absorbed by student newspapers,
which are, almost unknown in Europe.    ■
The Ubyssey issues two Literary Supplements each session that are supposed to contain the type of material found in Tha Oxford
Outlook. Some day these will be published in
journal form, but in the meantime they can
have the quantity and quality of material of an
undergraduate magazine. There are students
in this university who can provide both quantity and quality. Let us hope that they will be
moved to contribute to the forthcoming Supplement.

George Vancouver, representing
Britain at the NootV.a Convention accomplished the most by way of exploration, his charting of the Coast
being most accurate. In conclusion
Mr. Freeman compared the achievements of Russia, Spain and England
on the North West Coast.
The Honorary President, Dr. Sage,
to presenting "Explorers by Land
to B. C," dealt briefly with the efforts of such French explorers as
La Salle and La Verendrye prior to
Fur trade played an Important
part to the exploration of the west
under the patronage of the Hudson's
Bay Company and the North-West
Company. In the latter company Alexander MacKenzie was employed, so
famed for his voyages to the Arctic
and Pacific. Following In. the footsteps of MacKenzie, Simon Fraser
descended the river which bears his

briefly sketched.

The Historical Society commenced
its activities for the term on Monday evening by a well, attended meeting at the home of Professor C.
Cooke. Two papers were read during the evening and an Interesting
discussion followed.
Michael Freeman to presenting
"Explorers by flea to B. C," exhlb-
ited keen study and forethought of
his subject. Commencing with the
voyage of Halishto at the end of the
8th century, Mr. Freeman traoed
through the spoeryphal voyages of
Ferrer, de Fonts and de Fuea.
"The Russians had the honor of being the first to reach definitely the
Northwest coast of this continent,"
Mr. Freeman stated, giving a detailed
account of the efforts of Vitus Bering. The development of fur trade
was suggested and the achievements
of the Russians summarised.
Turning to Spanish endeavours,
Mr. Freeman gave the reasons for
her attempts and followed Up with
the efforts of such explorers as Per-
eg, Heceta, Quadra, Martinez, and
Hero. The settlement of the Nootka
Convention ended Spanish endeav
"The fable of the North-West passage was one of the causes of stimulation to England," Mr. Freeman
claimed and cited the efforts of Captain Cook. Following the publication of Cook's voyage a valuable fur
trade sprang up, prominent enterprises being conducted by Hanna,
Meares, and Berkeley. The only American efforts were sponsored by
Kendrlck  and  Gray.

Editor, The Ubssey; Slr.-
Your columnist has expressed some
very adnurable views on the matter
of the Totem. Certainly we all want
it and we don't want any backsliding as regards quality. However
would appreciate a little information
about the price.
Is it true that the Totem used to
be distributed free to students, being
paid for out of A. M. S. funds? When
did they start charging for it, and
why? Have they not gone too far in
asking $1.80 and 12.00, and would not
more copies be sold at a lower rate?
Let us have the Totem 'to toto.'
It was never toteneded to be a profitable publication—this idea of profit
to regard to it Is * something new.
Economy is necessary, Mr. Editor,
but don't let them sacrifice quality.
Yours sincerely,
This little globe which is but a
mere speck, travels through space
with its fellows, lost in Immensity.
Man, a creature about five feet tall,
Is certainly a tiny thing, as compared with the universe. Yet one of these
imperceptible beings declares to his
neighbors: "Hearken unto me. The
God of all these worlds speaks with
my voice. There are nine billions of

ant-hole is precious in God's sight.
All the others are eternally damned by Him. Mine alone Is blessed.—
Conscientiousness has in many outgrown that stage in which the sense
of a compelling power is joined with
rectitude of action. The truly honest

engineers of B. C. He related how

The Freshmen may not be fully
acquainted with each other as yet
but they are already proud of one
of their members—Charlie Crane,
the only blind and deaf student to
the world.
Charlie, a Vancouver boy, has been
blind and deaf since six years of age.
He is sometimes referred to as being
dumb also but he has been taught
to speak, and he is certainly not
dumb to any other way. He began
his educational career at the School
for the Blind and Deaf at Halifax
and to 1920 he transferred his attendance to the Vancouver school. Last
June he passed the Junior Matriculation with the exception of mathematics. This year, under the tutorship of Jimmy Dun, he is studying
English and Latin at University.
His tutor sits with him to the lee
ture room and communicates the
words of the professor to Charlie on
his fingers. Since very few of his
text-books are published'In Revised
Braille for the blind, most of his
reading Is accomplished by this manual method. He uses a Braille typewriter for his notes so that he can
refer to them later, but for assigned
work he uses an ordinary typewriter.
He is passionately fond of classical
literature and history and Is unusually well versed in these subjects.
His other great love is sawing wood,
but he gets rid of most of his surplus entigy In the gymnasium where
he enjoys spending an hour every
day doing difficult and sometimes
dangerous feats on the bars and
He has a flair for writing and his
aim is to enter some journalistic or
public relations work. While his
blindness and deafness are terrible
handicaps he has already done wonders in surmounting these difficulties
and his friends are confident that
he will attain still greater success.

The policy of the year, and a financial report were given by the secretary-treasurer at a meeting of the
Women's Undergraduate Society,
Wednesday, October 7, to the auditorium.
A short speech by Dorothy Myers,
in which she stated the general alms
of the W. U. S„ was followed by an
address from Dean Bollert, to which
she commented upon the definite
line of policy to tiie statement presented by the secretary.
Miss Bollert quoted an address given recently to students of McGill
University, by E. W. Beattle, Chancellor of that University, and to con-
notion with -this suggested that every
Arts student at the University of B.
C, even though they had no ambition
to enter Parliament, should at least
take an Interest to the politics of her
own country. She further urged that
every student have a definite purpose
to her University work, and mat she
subordinate all small alms.
October 23 and 24 were the dates
given by Miss Myers for this year's
fashion show. She Impressed on the
women the fact that they must begin work on this project immediately
if they wish to make the show as
successful as the one of the preceding year.
Dr. J. G. Davidson: Nobody
has begun to commence to begin to start.
New Campui Club
Plans Plenty Peps
A pep club has been started on the
campus with the idea of providing
rooters and cheer leaders for pep
meetings and games.
The club will be controlled this
year by upper-class men, that is upper-class men will hold all executive
positions, but the majority of the
membership of the club will be filled
by the Frosh. In succeeding years
twenty-five men will be chosen from
each class.
Whenever it is desired to have a
pep meeting, the pep club must be
consulted and they will provide the
necessary entertainment in regard to
songs and yells.
Members of the club at present are
as follows: Arthur H. Hall, Lyle
Stewart, Arthur McClellan, Bodie
Gillies, Marcus Holmes, Gordon Hil-
ker, Kenny Stewart and Sidney
A meeting will be held on Tuesday, October 13 for the purpose of
drawing up a constitution. Watch the
Athletic notice board for the announcement of further meetings.

Yes-I Think So!
Taetday, October •
Someone, perhaps It was Ulysses
himself, suggested that poslbly we
might find some difficulty to procuring material for this column.
Agrmemnon answered, "Difficulty?
There's no difficulty when the editorial page Is one edition of the
Ubyssey contains misprints sufficient
to affort a month's material for comment!"
This violent attack struck us as almost uncalled for. And why should
the editorial page be singled out?
Misprints appear to us to be distributed throughout the paper with
marked impartiality—which is to itself laudable. However, we seem to
recall that Agamemnon brought this
very point to the attention of "Ubyssey" readers some time ago, and received rather caustic treatment at the
hands of the editor. We now perceive that Aggy's comment was dictated by memories of the editorial
lash working on his prejudiced mind.
Yes-I think so!
But to return to the matter of material. The editorial page as a whole
has recently, to our hearing, come
to for a certain amount of criticism
of various kinds. Since we share—it
we may—some of the co-operative
Ideals of the columnist who contributes Pipe and Pen (perhaps because we feel that competition lies
beyond our small abilities) we have
decided to undertake a Co-operative
Defence of the editorial page. This
narrow interpretation of tho word
may not appeal to other "Co-wops,"
but to us it is a beginning, aa the
guinea-pig said of his tail.
We offer but a brief and inadequate defencer-brief bocauso our
space, even to so worthy an endeavour, is limited—inadequate, because
we find on looking it over, that tho
page Itself does not offer the material for defence that we might wish
Let us defend however. The editorial on debating deserves the atehtion
of the whole student body.  .During
the  last  two  years  our  debating
strength as wo knew by bitter experience, has been below tho level of
that displayed by visiting eompeti
tors.    (We wonder if the Fipeman
approves of competition in this con'
nection or is his condemnation of
this very human tendency unlver
sal?)   We might, before turninj to
other items to our Defence, commend
the style of this particular editorial
to developing "Demosthenes of t
as mildly suggestive of that which
has helped to destroy the "former
glory" of the Forensic edifice."
Dullness Dispersed
The editorial page has been ac
cused of being dull. "But, my dear
young lady, aren't editorial page* ex.
pected to be dull?" Apparently not
Someone must have reported this
criticism to the editor, who realises
this dullness Is not a necessary attrl
bute. And so we find that to the
last issue, Dullness is banished. The
page is enlivened by two or three
charming quotations from certain
moralists and others. In order to add
piquancy, we suppose, the editor has
cultivated a slight lisp in the wrong
place—'What man hath done, man
can do." Humor of this unobtrusive
variety is always to order and—Yeth,
I think tho!   ,■
May we note one other attempt to
dispel dullness? This is the work
of the co-operating columnist. What
better weapon can one find than that
familiar one of introducing the un
expected and the unknown? How
many students must have roused the
well-known lethargic minds at meet
tog the word '"wooks." How many
delved toto their Chaucers to the
hopes of discovering the meaning of
what at first glance appears to be
some Old English word for something or other? How many failed?
How many anxiously await the publication of the next Ubyssey, eagerly
planning to turn first to the editor
ial page to the hopes of finding the
Interpretation under the heading
(possibly) of "Answer to last week's
puzzle?" With the use of the word
"weeks," it has .suddenly occurred to
us that possibly "wooks" is a mis
print. We shall, however, banish the
thought at once, being disposed to
consider misprints as non existent.
(Agamemnon to the contrary). Be
sles, If "wooks" should be admitted
to be a mere misprint, we realize
that our whole defence, or at least a
major part of It, falls to the ground.
Horror! Does "thath" belong to the
same category? Was our Agamemnon right after all?
Friends, we have lost heart—be
sides, as we remarked before, our
space is limited. The defence has
proven even more Inadequate than
we at first anticipated. ACHILLES

The Pipeman talked of misprints
last Tuesday. One of them was a
noble thought, "What man hath
done, man can do." Did Thaketh
peare thay that? Again, he himself
referred to those mysterious periods,
"The opening wooks of the session."
What, why and when is a wook, and
how wooketh it? And the last and
saddest misprint was that—they left
out our column. Unless, of course
we could think that Pipe and Pen
was our misprinted, "Yes—I Think
The Literary and Athletic Association of the A. T. C. (hereinafter
called the Lit. and Ath.) held their
first business meeting on Monday.
Pretty dry, of course, but some encouraging signs were seen. For instance, we can now say definitely
that the College will compete in the
Governor's Cup at Soccer, and will
run in all Varsity track events. And
from the looks of our new arrivals,
I think that we are in the strongest
position we have ever enjoyed.
Daring the summer the arrangement of reference books in the main
Reading Room has been changed.
Now call numbers are arranged alphabetically, the A's starting at the
south end of the room near the door
leading to the magazine room
The last section has been reserved
for special classifications. In this
section all year books have been
placed together. This should facili-
ate reference. There Is also a section for reserve books for tpeclal
subjects. In History 1, for Instance,
each assay is assigned, the necessary reference books will be placed
together on this shelf, and returned
general circulation when the essay
due, to be replaced by a new set.
Students doing special work may
make arrangements with Miss Smith
to have books they require set aside
for them under their names for the
length of time they have need for
them. There is a section also on this
shelf for the Letters Club. Before
each paper material is collected and
placed on the shelf until such time
as the paper is given. Similar arrangements are being made for the
Historical Society.
Encyclopedias are to the same place
as before in the center of the room.
Those to English are at the north
side of the stand and foreign languages at the south with modern languages at the end near the stairway
and classics near the desk. With tho
encyclopedias are also some over-
site dictionaries.
Examination books have been
moved to the central book stand on
the south side under the modem
languages. Where the examination
papers were there is now an agricultural index, an industrial arte index, an educational index and an art
"Certainties in the midst of unoor-
taintios" was the gist of W. M. Rob-
ertson's address to tiie V. C. U. on
Wednesday noon. He briefly pictures
a little of the upheaval and instability of the world around us to-day
but soon brought His listeners to ease
as he went on to show that "there
are some things which cannot bo
Vividly the speaker pointed out the
certainty and stability of the kingdom of our Lord and tha everlasting-
ness of the Sovereignty of God. The
Bible he stresses as "the book which
standeth forever." Re
modern science and
coverles have net;
truths of this groat
have served to confirm it antV
prove it's greatness. "Then again,"
the speaker said, "why has this greet
book been hated by many men—because it Is a frank revelation of tiie
truth." Yet it has withstood all their
attempts to stamp it out.
Then finally there is the supremacy of spiritual forces. Many great
scientists admit that the more they
investigate the more they realize that
there is the spiritual behind it all.
They see that It is fatal to leave God
out of account. It ia when such
truths as these are brought out that
one can get a firmer grip to the turmoil of life around us.
On Friday at 12:05 to Arts 204 a
paper will be read by one of the
members and all Interested are cordially invited to attend.
Our first little job Is the Arts '20
Road Race, and we can only promise
our best. The Aggies have a small
student body, too, and somehow we
would like to see them come out with
us—this is a challenge. Not that we
don't expect to—.
After all, Arts only won in 1922
because the College lent thorn three
men out of a team of six—and there
are well over five hundred males in
that rather lazy faculty. So come on,
Aggies—let's give Arts and Science
third and fourth places, as tho small
Insect said to the other small insect.
Since we are mainly concerned
with news this week, perhaps some
Varsity people will be interested to
know that Mr. Soward is speaking to
the Lit. and Ath. on Monday, 12th of
October on "Russia." Come in your
thousands and learn something about
the Pipeman's ideal-cooperation. As
one cowop to another, I tell you,
It's a grand thing. Here's an example:
A celebrated author proposed to an
equally celebrated actress, on the
grounds of eugenics. He thought it
would be wonderful if their children
had his brains and her beauty. "But,"
said she, "what if they have your
beauty and my brains." Which is
the problem of cooperation to a nutshell. Some is useful—some ain't/
Yes—I think so.
Although the 'Ubyssey" may contain a fuller report later, I must really mention the best function of the
week—a dinner given by Or. Vance
to Rev. C. H. Shortt, our Warden,
(no, not Warder!) in honour both of
his birthday and the 50th anniversary of his ordination. Hall was
crowded, as besides the students and
faculty we had with us several grads
and prominent churchmen—prominent In the more abstract sense, of
course. Incidentally, Mr. Shortt is
two days older than a man who was
born on the same day as himself.
This is due, as he would say, to "a
surfeit of travelling." (vide "1066 and
All That"). He got Father Time rather balled up on two trips around the
world, and I think that is why Father Time has decided to let our Warden alone .after this, with the result
he is getting younger instead of
older. iBaj m^^x^^m 3

Big Block Meeting
Varsity Big-Block Club held their
tirst meeting of the year on Tuesday.
The chief business was the election of
officers for the coming year. Phil
Barrat was elected president and Bob
Osborne vice-president. Pi Campbell
Is the new secretary and Bobby Gaul
is treasurer.
All these men are top-notch athletes and are very good representatives for the Big-Block Club.
It was decided to hold a dance
again this year, which will be open
for everybody. This will be held on
Big-Block day when they will also
present the sweaters to last year's
Freshmen who won the award.
In addition there will be a luncheon held for all the members on the
last Thursday in each month. Everybody that wishes to go must notify
the executive before that date.
All men interested in reorganizing
the Fencing Club leave their names
at the Business manager's office immediately,
The Boxing Club will meet in Applied Science 102 on Friday, October
9th, from 12 to 1. Owing to unfortunate circumstances, the last meeting
was called off.

Soccer League
Will Organize
In Near Future
An event of considerable interest
to soccer followers is the inter-class
soccer competition which will very
shortly get under way. Last year's
series proved highly successful, awakening a widespread enthusiasm which
resulted in a consistently large attendance at every game. The Soccer
Executive received so many entries
that two leagues, one of Arts teams
and the other of Science, had to be
formed to accommodate all the entries. When the smoke of battle had
cleared away it was found that Education '31, a very dark horse, was
sitting on top of the heap.
In the past the Soccer Club has
handled the competition themselves,
since they thought that Inter-Class
Soccer, being more or less to its infancy, needed a strong guiding hand.
After the phenomenal growth of the
aforementioned infant during the past
year, however, the Soccer Club has
come to feel that the Inter-Class
league must now face the gloomy
world more or less by Itself. In this
connection, an attempt to form some
kind of governing body from the
Class team representatives themselves will be made this year.
There is a very handsome trophy
donated by the Soccer Club for the
winners of this competition. In addition to the honor of having won
this cup—which is quite an impressive exhibit on Presentation Day-
it is also well to remember that the
soccer championship carries with it
a good many points towards the winning of the Governor's Cup. The
latter is the most coveted trophy on
the campus and the Soccer Club
would like to suggest that Athletic
Repa, should not overlook this opportunity of helping their class to win
such a prize.
Notices giving further details will
be posted early next week, and, in
the meantime, any member of the
Soccer Club will be glad to discuss
the whole project with anyone interested.

Call and Deliver
Eager to break toto the win column
after a pair of bitter defeats, an Inexperienced Canadian Rugby squad, representing the University of British
Columbia, will take the field at
Athletic Park tomorrow afternoon intent on subduing the Meralomas grid
machine. Faced with the necessity of
cnalktog up a victory to order to remain to the Big Four race, the students are out to take the contest. For
five days the long.hope of the Pacific
Coast college football has been work
tog hard and to far better shape than
to previous contests. Many of the
men that were on the injured list a
week ago are back to the lineup, and
their presence will greatly strength
en the Blue and Gold chances.
With all of the Prairie Universities
reporting strong aggregations, the
Point Grey students are losing no
time to preparing for the Western
Canada Intercollegiate championships,
which are to be played here on Nov
ember 14 and 16, and each of the lea
gue games gives some idea of the improvement of the B. C. outfit. If the
Western college can put up a good
fight to the Lipton Cup series, the
students are sure to have an even
chance of copping the Hardy Trophy
this fall.
For some time Dr. Gordon Burke,
the Varsity grid mentor, has been
shifting his men around to order to
have his squad working as smoothly
as possible, and several Important
changes are to be made to Saturday's
team. In the backfield, Gavin Dirom
has been moved from right to con
tre half, and will have a hand to the
passing as well as the ball carrying
against the Meralomas. Another shift
has been made in the line, where
Ernie Peden is now playing middle
instead of in his old inside position.
Several new men will also be to ac
tlon tomorrow, Doug Maclntyre, sen
sational backfield star on the New
Westminster outfit, will be carrying
the oval for his alma mater, while
Harold Knight, poor of some long
heaves. Tom Brown, the rooky recuit
snap, is a doubtful starter. He has
been bothered with a bad hip and
hu bean out of practice all week.
Dick Moore and Alex MacGulre will
be back to the game after a games
rest. Both of the U. B. C. flying wings
were Injured to the opening tltl with
the Dodekas, but are fit for the strug
gle tomorrow.
Confederates and classmates will
vie with each other in the opening
game of men's grass hockey when the
two university teams, Varsity and
U.B.C. tangle at Connaught Park at
2:30 on Saturday. '
The teatos for the season have not
yet been definitely chosen and Saturday's game will give the selection
committee an opportunity to make its
final placlngs.
Sid Semple, president of the Men's
Grass Hockey Club, states that the
line-ups for the two teams will be
posted on the notice board in the
quad. Players are urged to consult
this board not later than Friday since
the University will be closed Saturday
The Sports Editor,

Dear Sir: '
You have lately been hearing
about the game to be played
between the "Occasional Rugby Team" and the University
on October 12th. Probably you
are wondering just who they
are. To tell you the story will
convey more to you and let you
know about us.
Last year a few of us talked
of an Ex-Varsity team. The intention was to have a good
time. Now when organized, we
have the best men from the
last several years who are to
town. The team is good and Is
getting bettor quickly. Our ambitions are growing. During the
last few weeks we have trained
to win and expect to have a
real game with you on Monday.
We had hoped this date would
be "Homecoming" so we could
show that we as apparent "Has
Beens" are still the better men.
However, the spirit will be
there so prepare for a battle.
Yours very truly,
O. R. T.
The Men's Gym. Club held its
opening turnout last Tuesday evening,
and if attendance is to be considered,
the year will be most successful, as
there is a marked Increase over last
After an opening address by the
President, Art Dobson, Mr. Whiffin,
the physical instructor, was introduced. Mr. Whiffin was an Army physical Instructor at Aldershot before
coming to Canada, and uses the Army
method  of instruction   to   Swedish
Drill ,    \
The workout started to the usual
way with Swedish Drill, followed by
marching and running. Then the class
large as it was, moved to turn to the
mats, to thf horitontal bar, parallel
bar, and horse.
The find of the evening was Art
Caldlcott, who turned in a remarkable
performance on the horizontal and
parallel bars. It is hoped that the near
future will sae Art taking part of the
load from Mr. Whlffto's shoulders by
showing some of the boys how things
are done on the bars.
It was f suggested that as there will
be a large class turning out, it should
be divided into two or three groups,
each working on a different set of
apparatus. Indications are that this
will be done at next Tuesday's turnout.
The meeting closed with a free-for-
all game of "basketball" in which the
entire class participated before going
to tiie showers.
Anyone wishing, to join the club
should get to touch' with Art Dobson
or Doug Fair via the Arts Letter
Rack, and should come without obligation to next week's turnout, at 8
o'clock Tuesday evening.
Varsity Soccer Teams face a heavy
schedule over the holiday week-end,
both teams playing on Saturday and
Monday. The Seniors meet Chinese
Students on Saturday at Cambie St.
Grounds. The -Orientals have always
proved hard nuts to crack on this
ground, but the students, fresh from
their victory over Capilano, are confident ot taking the game. With this
game under their hats, the boys expect to add further to their laurels on
Monday, at Kerrisdale Park, when
they take on Point Grey United. This
team was one. of the leaders last year,
but has lost a number of its star players, so that it presents a much weaker front than formerly. There is,
therefore, a good chance of the Blue
and Gold garnering the major points
and placing themselves in a favourable position to the league.
The Juniors face one of the new
teams, Woodland Thistles, on Saturday afternoon at the tatter's home
ground, Woodland Park, On Monday
morning they travel to Brighouse
Park to play Richmond. Anxious to
avenge their close defeat at the hands
of Burnaby last week, they intend to
deal hardly with their opponents and,
incidentally, to raise themselves a
place or two above the cellar.
The Senior games both take place
at 3 p.m., while the Juniors play at
3 p.m. on Saturday and at 11 a.m. on
It is as yet Impossible to determine
Saturday's line-ups, but they will be
on the notice boards by Friday morning at the latest. In respect to lineups, by the way, the Juniors are reminded that the Seniors are not by
any means permanent fixtures to
their respective positions.

The first men's grass hockey game
of the season will take place on Saturday, at 2 p.m., on the upper playing field. Varsity will play against
The prospects of the Women's
Grass Hockey Club this year are particularly bright A great many former players are back again to wield
their sticks for the blue and gold.
There are also representatives of
practically all the Vancouver High
Schools. Included to the membership,
too, are such players as Anne Hartley, Rosalind Young, and Gladys
Downes from Victoria.
At the practice on Wednesday, Mabel Brown, Dorothy Lawrence, and
Margaret Beaumont, all from Kitsilano, showed up well, as also did Mar-
nie McKee and Marjory Lang, formerly of Lord Byng, and Hope Palmer
from South Vancouver High.
Several players new to the game
turned out to practice and should be
ready for league play next year.
Bea Sutton, Mabel McDonald, Marjorie Finch, VI Mellish, and —lml Tep-
po, all who have played for U. B. C.
on previous occasions will soon be in
trim again for the league games which
commence this week.
The U. B. C.-Normal game, scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 10th, has been
There will probably be a practice
on Saturday, October 10th, so members are asked to watch the notice
boards carefully.
An innovation of considerable importance
to Sport followers at the University, is the introduction of an insurance scheme which will
cover injuries received in the more dangerous
sports, namely: Soccer, English Rugby, and
Canadian Rugby. These three sports have
contributed largely to the Injured Players'
Fund in the past, and it is hoped that this present plan of insurance will effect a very worthy
economy. It is quite evident, however,'that
the amount for which the A.M.S. proposes to
insure, twenty-five dollars, is not adequate.
Records of past injuries show that casualties
in these sports are usually serious and involving expense well over the amount of the proposed insurance. In order to cover additional
expenses, the powers that be are asking players to take out a further twenty-five dollars
worth of insurance at a cost of two dollars to
themselves. It seems to us,that such a request
is fair enough since each individual player
would then have substantial protection at a
minimum of cost.
In these days "of hard times, we should not,
in fact we could not, expect our impecunious
Council to take full responsibility for all injuries.   We hope that players will take this op
portunity of obtaining adequate protection, and
thus meet the Council half way at least. With
a little co-operation, we could have the safest
and fairest plan in operation that we have ever
had on the campus.
The annual Track Meet staged by the Freshmen Class in competition with the rest of the
University, is an event of genuine interest to
sport followers. As intimated last week, we
are right behind this year's executive in their
efforts to put Track back in the prominent position which it certainly should occupy. An interesting program has been worked out for
rtext Wednesday, and everyone ought to be
on deck right from the start.
*     *     *
We are informed that Council proposes to
practise rigid economy with a view to devoting
all money saved to the erection of Jeachers
or some other seating accommodation. Might
we be permitted to suggest that at least a little
of the money saved, if any is saved, should be
spent on the other two playing fields. The
state of the upper oval and the Soccer field
barely fits them for practices, and in their
present condition they offer a severe handicap
to some of the Varsity teams obliged to play
league games there. *
One of the big hopes to the Varsity, grid offensive is the gains made
by the ball carrying of Gav. Dirom.
So far the husky sciencemen has been
an outstanding factor to the student
squad and he will have his work
cut ov.t for tomorrow's battle.
Vanity Racquet v
Start in Annual
Fall Tournament
The annual tennis tournament of
the Varsity Lawn Tennis Club has
officially begun. (Oons madam, but
what a tournament!) There is a record
entry list to the singles events, and,
while the number of entries in the
doubles and mixed doubles is not so
numerous they are all players of the
first rank, who could hold their own
In practically any company.
The ceded players to the Men's
Singles are:— George Yashy, Wally
Mayers, Harold Lando and Colin Milne, though there is always the possibility that some "dark horse" may upset all the dope. The most eminent
among the ranks of the Women are,
Phyllis White, Gladys Munton and
Ruth Whitkeck. The Men's doubles
should see quite a struggle between
George Yoshy and Harold Lando on
the one hand, and Colin Milne and
Dennis Nicols on the other hand,
while the mixed doubles will probably feature Phyllis White and George
Yoshy versus Gladys Munton and
Harold Lando.
During the tournament all tournament matches will take precedence
over other matches or players, and
the Varsity Lawn Tennis Club would
appreciate the co-operation of all tennis players in this respect Players
should make every effort to get their
matches plqyed off as soon as possible since the first two rounds of
tho draw must be played off-by next
This year there are rumors of Inter-Collegiate tennis with the Universities of Seattle, Tacoma, Portland
and possibly Alberta. Maybe this is
being a little too hopeful but the entire tennis club Is looking wistfully
forward to the time when their hopes
will be realized.
Varsity, will sally forth to battle
against opposing teams who "know
their stuff." "Buck" Yeo has plfced
a lot of confidence to these two teams,
and, b'gosh, they're going out to show
him that his confidence is not misplaced.
The "opposing teams" are the Ex-
Techs and Ex-King George, who play
U.B.C. and Varsity respectively. Last
week, in a notable performance, Varsity beat the Ex-Techs by a score of
five to three; on the face of this U.B.
C. should also win their game against
the Ex-Techs. U.B.C. lost last week
to the Occasions— one of the strongest teams entered, and which is composed entirely of Ex-Varsity men.
Now the U.B.C. are out to wipe out
this smirch, and we certainly hope
they do!
Varsity has what is probably the
toughest assignment of the year in
to-morrow's game against Ex-King
George. The Ex-Kings ran off with
the Miller tup last year and they
are threatening to do the same this
year, so up and at 'em Varaity, we're
with youl
On the U.B.C. team young Bobby
Gaul has thus far been the outstanding man. He is always a thorn in tho
side of opposing teams with his spurts
of tremendous speed. As yet the new
talent have not had much chance to
do any outstanding work, however,
we will probably obtain some real
performances from them on Saturday.
The serum was exceedingly good last
week, considering the mushy condition of the, field, and they should turn
to a stellar performance to-morrow if
the weather remains good. The-position of fullback will be greatly
strengthened If Howie Cleveland is
able to reach Vancouver to time to
take part in the game. At present he
is on his way here from Montreal.
Howie, It will be remembered, played
fullback last year, and was an integral part of the team's strength.
This year the McKechnie Cup team
will be composed of the best talent
of the two Millar Cup teams, and they
certainly should obtain a super McKechnie Cup team under these conditions.

U.B.C.: Hanbury, Barratt, K. Mercer, A. Mercer, Moyes, Ellis, Nixon,
Brand, Akhurst, Davidson, Hobson,
