Final Campaign Meeting Crowds
i At Its Height
Did  the Campaign  Meeting fill  the
auditorium   last   Friday   noon?	
well, ask the photographers. Just
the same, as some one remarked,
there was still enough room left to
have suspended a couple of students
from the electric lights; which would
have greatly enhanced that flashlight
"We've started the thing and we've
got to get it across," said President
Richards. "One of the things most
essential to getting it across is
money'' he continued. To this end an
appeal was made for voluntary contributions.
Contributions Offered
In answer to this appeal, Miss
Isobel Miller, vice-president of last
years graduating class, informed the
meeting that Arts '22 were contributing $22 towards the campaign fund.
Arts '24 promised to contribute not
less than $50. The Delta Phi Sorority
presented the campaign with $25,
and the Alumni Society promised to
contribute a good portion of the
profits of the forthcoming Alumni
Faculty Hope for Success
Mr. Jack Grant, speaking on the
vital importance of the Campaign,
stated that it was entirely a spirit
of sportsmanship that kept many of
the faculty in the positions which
they now occupy. Without laboratories and equipment, many of the
professors have been unable to carry
on that experimental work so essential to their success. If the Campaign fails some of them may be
forced to give up the struggle.
Mr. Aubrey Roberts of the Varsity
Press Bureau, stated that he had
succeeded in getting three moving
picture companies interested in the
Campaign. The pictures which are
taken will be shown, not only in B.
C, but those of the Fox Company
will be shown throughout Canada and
the   United   States.

Time to Change!
Next?   The Pilgrimage.
Some Superfluous Information
You may think that you know all
about the Parade and Pilgrimage on
Saturday, but do you?
Do you know that every student in
the Alma Mater Society is expected
to be on the job at the east end of
the Georgia Street viaduct, at 12
o'clock sharp?
Do you know that the Marshall, assisted by his subs, will take charge of
you and put you in that section of the
parade which suits your particular
style of beauty?
Do you know that to date at least
35 floats have been arranged for, and
that they include decorated cars from
the Municipality of Point Grey, New
Westminster City, the Kiwanis Club
of New Westminster, the Gyro Club
of New Westminster?
U.B.C. Behind No Other Universities
In The Value Of Original Work
Being Done By Its Professors
Students of this University will be
interested to hear that, during his re
cent visit to Europe, Dr. Ashton, head
of the Modern Languages department,
was successful in publishing a work
of research and criticism which has
attracted much distinguished attention in Paris. Hitherto there has been
little independent Anglo-Saxon criticism of French writers, whether classical or modern, the tendency being to
follow docilely in the wake of the
leading French critics. Dr. Ashton's
book, on the subject of Madame de la
Fayette, takes issue at several points
with the accepted verdict, and throws
into relief certain aspects of her work
which had before passed unnoticed.
Dr. Ashton, who had already received
his degree of Docteur de l'Universite
de Paris by virtue of a previous work
on Du Bartas, completed the present
volume in 1913. Since that time he
withheld it from publication in the
intention of presenting it for the State
Doctorate of France, a degree which,
we understand, has never been conferred on an Anglo-Saxon for work in
French literature. The favourable re-
(Continued on Page 2.)
Do you know that the Engineers,
the boys who have been talking about
demolishing forty beers, have undertaken to produce a float which will be
scientifically perfect? (We're not sure
ourselves, but rumour has it that such
is the case.)
Do you know that the Aggies have
been working on their float for a week
and according to Cliff Barry, it's going to be a hum-dinger, by cricky?
Do you know that the Mayor of
New Westminster is going to drive his
own car in the parade?
Do you know that the Municipality
of New Westminster has given the
committee permission to paint up the
sidewalks of the metropolis of the
Fraser?    Come on, Westminster!
Do you know that there will probably be three bands at least in the
parade to cheer you on your weary
Do you know all our marching songs
and have you had your voice tuned?
Do you know that every one taking
part in the parade is supposed to decorate his or her person with Varsity
colors of all kinds?
Do you know that it will be a heinous offence for a plutocratic University student to fill his car with Varsity students who should be walking?
Let him pack other than Varsity people to swell the parade.
Do you know that the B. C. Electric
Railway has given the committee the
space in the front of the inside of the
street cars for advertising? Instead
of reading about where to go to collect maple leaves, you will soon read
about moving to Point Grey.
Do you know that street cars will

U. B; C. Miller-Cup Team Wins
'^la'Tiird Gaj ie of Series
c. with Co.- '   arce
The Varsity Miller Cup team secured their first victory of the season
when they scored six points against
the Bank of Commerce last Saturday.
, The game started rather scrappily
and Varsity did not settle down for
several minutes. They found themselves, however, in plenty of time to
prevent any score on the part of
their opponents and to take the game
well in hand. The three-quarters
were working particularly well and
it was a fine kick by Purdy which,
crossing the touch line almost at the
corner flag, put Varsity in a position
to gain their first score. This they
did after a hard struggle near the
goal line, Ramsel scoring. The try
was not converted and came just before half time.
A Fiery Second Half
Varsity pressed for the majority of
the second half though the Bankers
made some dangerous attacks on the
College line. About half way through
Morgan was injured and had to leave
the game. The remainder of the team
endeavored to counterbalance this
loss by playing with increased energy.
They put so much spirit into it that
for the remainder of the match they
were completely on top of the Commerce team. Some ten minutes before time a forward rush took the
College within scoring distance and
Ramsell got over the line for another
three points. The kick was again unsuccessful. The closing incident of
the game was ° free kick given to
the Bank of Con *n front of the
Varsity posts.   Thi ever, did not
score. ,£
Comment Firqm the Lines
The work of the three-quarters was
much in advance of anything the
team have thus far shown and augurs
well for the future. Another notable
feature of the game was the fine kicking of Goodacre, the Commerce back.
For the first time this season Varsity
was well represented in the stand.
Arts '25, in particular, are to be congratulated for their happy idea of attending as an organized body and
afterwards entertaining the team at

quarters, Price, Purdy, McLane, Cameron; five-eights, Morgan and Bickel;

Thus says Jack Grant: "Did you
complete your canvass yesterday?

Those Rough
Science Men!
Is It Technique?
(By  a   Lady  with   a   Mop)
Beside the Commercial Building
there stands a monument to the engineering skill of the Mechanicals of
Science '25. That is it was once a
monument to said skill; but now—
well, ask Val about it.
The "monument" was originally designed to determine the heavies and
"pullers" available for '23's tug of war
team. It consisted—ahem!—"of a
vertical lever of the 3rd order. (See
any Physics I. Freshman) which transmitted a horizontal pull to a spring
scale with a range of twenty pounds.
The mechanical advantage, neglecting
friction and barometric pressure, approximated  10."
Are we glad we don't take Science?
We are.
Mr. Gwyther Passes By.
Sundry perspiring individuals had,
by dint of prodigious effort, "registered up to 150 lbs. Then Val happened along. He grinned in anticipation, settled himself firmly, oh, just
a minute, he first took off his coat—
and heaved. Three things happened
simultaneously. The balance needle
jumped to the 200-lb. mark—the heavy
copper pulling wire broke—and Val
sat down heavily.
With the laudable intention of making everything clear, our Science informant adds that copper in tension
has an ultimate strength of some 30,-
000 lbs. per square inch.
Science men gasp because they understand it. Arts maidens exclaim
because they don't; and Aggies look
wise because they never do—but anyway we all join in the cheer: Atta
boy, Val!

ception of Dr. Ashton's work by competent critics, and the generous policy
pursued towards him by the Governors of the University of B. C, would
have assured him success in his candidature, had it not been for unavoidable delay caused by the peculiarities
of the French university system. He
was forced to leave France without
presenting his thesis for examination.
His book, however, though a freak of
fortune has denied to it the final honours, will speak for itself. It is now
in the hands of the Cambridge University Press, but a copy will soon be
available in the Library.
We may add that Dr. Ashton has
also been proposed for decoration with
the Legion d'Honneur, but his investment is hindered by the fact that the
Canadian Government saw fit to pass
a resolution recently requesting that
no foreign title, order or other honour
be conferred on a British subject resident in Canada. As Dr. Ashton, fortunately for us but unfortunately for
himself, comes under this category,
this mark of distinction also just
misses him. Hard lines! However,
we congratulate Dr. Ashton on the
real and solid recognition he has obtained abroad, and we congratulate
burselves that we have a governing
pody that can appreciate work of this
Once again the time for competition for the Governor's Cup has come
around, and once more every class is
preparing for the struggle for supremacy. From the Freshmen to the Seniors, all are waiting for the word
Science '23, the holders of the cup,
swear they will retain it. The Frosh.
as well as the fast-stepping Sophs,
swear equally as deep an oath, that
they will tear it from its holders'
grasp. Whether they will succeed is
a matter for conjecture.
According to latest advices points
are to be given for inter-class boxing, eliminations to begin after Christmas. Those who swing the padded mitts are advised to keep in trim,
until such time as they run up against
such stalwarts as Wallace, or Hyslop.
New Athletic Possibilities
Each year has its full quota of
athletes. In Arts '26 such track stars
as Darts, Barr and Thompson are
found. Thompson runs an exceptionally fast quarter mile and given any
sort of decent track should lower the
college record of 56 seconds.
Palmer, Kelly and Goult of Arts
'25 are not new to the track by any
means. The first named is known as
a fine sprinter, while Kelly's fame as
a high jumper and hurdler is widespread.
Agriculture has two outstanding
men in Buckley and Russell. "Buck"
should cop the mile and half-mile,
while Russell, undoubtedly one of the
finest jumpers in the province should
clear at least 5 ft., 8 inches.
Buchanan, last year's all around
champ, is the possession of Arts '24
and can be relied upon to bring in a
flock of points for his year. Livingstone too, should he 'come back' will
make the going fast for any opponent.
Excellent Spirit of Competition
Science can be relied upon to put
up a strenuous fight, and the various
years of the Faculty will prove dangerous in rugby and soccer.
The outcome of the basketball is
extremely doubtful. Rumours about,
speak of fast and heavy quintettes being "fielded" by every year.
The tug-of-war is already under way.
On Monday, Science '24 bested
Science "23.
Although it is still a long time until the relay race takes place, it is an
interesting matter for discussion.
Agriculture showed a clear pair of
heels to the rest of the college last
year and has an extremely fine chance
of making it 'two straight.' Arts '24
does not think so, neither does Arts
'25 and the Science gentlemen have
a lot to say on the subject.
However, while no one knows who
will cop the silverware, the competition will be keen, and there are many
thrills in store for the onlookers as
well as the participants.

For the third time in as many starts
Varsity played a draw at Athletic
Park, Saturday. Faced by their old
rivals the Province, the soccer team
did not serve up their usual good
game. Baker's penalty in the last
thirty seconds of play, relieving a
strained situation.
The team's line-up was greatly
changed. Cameron played center,
Baker inside left and Lundie outside
right. Dean, a recruit from our third
division team held down the outside
left position and played a very fine
game. One minutebefore time Cameron
took a corner; a Province forward
handled the ballin the penalty area,
and Baker, with a terrific drive shot
the ball into the net, tying the score.
Baker did not show his usual class,
playing on the forward line. His
brilliant work as back in previous
games out-shining the preformance he
put up Saturday; Cameron at center
also did not play his usual good game.
Dean piayed extremely well while
Crute once again was the 'old reliable.'
Dagger wis the outstanding man on
the Province team, while to Hazel-
dine goes the credit of his side's counter.

The play ot the Varsity Intermediate teams on Saturday was featured;
by the 16-0 trouncing which the
Frosh handed out to the Normalites.
In the other intermediate game Varsity III drew with the Bank of Commerce II. Both Varsity teams showed an improvement in form and condition, and played bang-up games.
In the Varsity III vs. Bank of Commerce the game was hard fought all
the wav, with the Varsity squad having a little, the better of the exchanges. Hislop, Varsity full back, scored
our only try. The convert was unsuccessful and the half ended with
Varsity leading 3-0. In the second
half however, the Bank fifteen seemed to come to life, and playing brilliant football managed to go over for
the   necessary   equalizer.
Little  Opposition   Met.
The Frosh vs. Normals game was a
more or less one-sided affair, and at
times the teachers were simply outclassed. The Varsity scrum worked
well and got the ball out to the
three's in splendid fashion. The
three-quarter line also played a better game, and gained much territory
by good passing. The Normal backs
played well, but their forwards and
three-quarters showed a sad lack of
practice and condition.
Normal gym — Friday, 5 o'clock.
Toot! Toot! And they're off in the
first game of the inter-class basketball series. Are you going to be there
to help your class win the Governor's
Cup? There is a lot of basketball
material at Varsity this year, so you
will see some good games.
Have you seen the schedule? It's
on the notice board.
Team practices are being held
regularly every Tuesday and Thursday at the Normal gym., and a
good crowd is turning out. Cliff Mathers has consented to give his spare
moments to coaching the three teams,
and we are expecting a successful
season   in   basketball.
On Saturday afternoon at K.E.H.S.
the new Varsity rugby team defeated
the Rowing Club IIL's by a score of
12-3. Playing downhill in the first
half, Varsity began pressing, and
after about ten minutes play Logan
went over, after a pretty three-quarter run. None of the touches were
converted. A few minutes later Roberts duplicated. Varsity continued
pressing but were unable to get
across again.
In the second half, playing up hill,
Varsity started out strong and kept
the ball in the Club's half most of
the game. Dickson and Stacey both
scored in this half. With about two
minutes to go the Club started an
offensive and succeeded in going over
for their lone tally, McEachern scoring. All the back line men, especially
Roberts and Kidson at half, deserve
special mention. Their passing, tackling and kicking was excellent.
Line up—McDevitt, J. Shannon,
Gross, Thompson, Newmarch, Munn,
Davidson, Roberts, Kidson, Dickson,
Logan, Tiffin, Goodwin, Stacey, Hartley. Spares: North, Leek, Wilcox,
Last Saturday was a banner day
for the Varsity II eleven, when they
defeated Smith-Davidson and Wright
to the tune of two goals to nil. The
game in the first half was good, being featured by many good combination plays. The two goals were netted in this half, by Wilkinson and
Grovando, the latter's shot being
especially fine. In the second half
the "Stationers" picked up and forced the play, but to no avail and the
game ended with Varsity -on the long
end   of  2-0   score.
The first game for the Varsity McKechnie Cup team will be an inter-
provincial tussle with a team from
Edmonton, on Thanksgiving Day, Nov.
The McKechnie squadron is fast
getting into shape, and will be all
ready for the first whistle on Thanksgiving Day. This year's McKechnie
fifteen has not been definitely decided upon, and there is bound to be
some rearrangement in the line-up.
Most of last year's stars, however, are
back again, and will be right in the
fray when the season starts.
Some good material has also been
unearthed in the Miller Cup games,
and on the whole Coach McLachlan
will be able to field a team as strong,
if not stronger, than last year's successful squad. The game on Nov. 6
with Edmonton will be the first inter-
provincial rugby game played here,
and will also be the first game this
season for the McKechnie team, thus
giving them a good opportunity of
showing their wares.
The McKechnie Cup series starts
on Nov. 18, when Varsity tackles Vancouver Rep. The schedule this year
includes dual games with the Victoria Rep., Vancouver Rep. and the Cowichan Rep. This is the first year Cowichan has ever entered a team in the
McKechnie Cup series, and the season on the whole promises to be a
great one for English rugby.
There is also the possibility of a
game with Nanaimo. No definite announcement can be made of games
with Stanford University at Christmas, but it is expected that Stanford
will make the trip.

Exceedingly concrete, ,-. fact, , Though
the Campaign Committee had at the
beginning of the session the' general
authorization of the Council to go
ahead with its plans, it should have
laid the details of the finished scheme
before ttye Council, as a matter of
principle; but ihiperatively it should
have done so When so much money
was involved.
We hope that the future proposals
of the Publicity Campaign, or of any
other body, will receive the sensible
and careful consideration which is due
them—as a result of going through
Hie right channels.
Editor for the Week..
Miss P. I, Mackay
The memorial cairn owes its useless
life to an unfortunate departure from
the ordinary procedure of student administration.
The Publicity Committee put the
plans of the cairn before the student
mass-meeting last week—before it
had been considered by the Students'
Council. It was so presented to the
meeting that only the romantic glamor
and sentiment of the proposal appeared. The idea of a cairn to be erected by the students to the honor and
glory of their Alma Mater . . . .
Yes, it appealed immensely to the general imagination.
The proposal was received with enthusiasm.
When the plan of the memorial
cairn was brought up later in the
Students' Council, stripped of its
clouds of glory, it was found that the
plain facts of the case involved an
expenditure of one-third of the total
funds of the Student Campaign.
Funds are a consideration of premier importance with us; the Campaign
finances have been with difficulty acquired dollar by dollar from the regular budgets (small enough at any
time) of the organized societies of
the Alma Mater. An administrative
body such as the Council, having the
best interests 6f the Campaign at
heart, would 'have saved it from itself.
A way out Of the difficulty could surely have been found, by which the same
amount of advertising (for if there is
a practical ideal behind the cairn it
is that of advertising) could have
been obtained,:—without the accompaniment of'' the present mad expense. For surely the cairn's most
ardent supporter can see that the results obtainable from a pile of stones
are hardly commensurate with the
other possibilities of one hundred dollars!
Had the Council dealt with the
matter in the regular course of things,
that is, before it was submitted to the
Alma Mater meeting, it is possible
that such folly, as it appears to us,
would not now be a regrettable, and
Few things in and around this
University remain unscathed by student criticism. The accommodation,
the ventilation, the library, the faculty even,—all come in for a share.
Indeed the air is rife with criticism.
And of all things annually criticised,
the book store suffers most.
Two factions contribute to this
criticism—the shortages and the
prices. In previous years the estimates for the various courses have
been decidedly over-estimates, and a
large stock has been left on hand.
At the end of March, 1921, this surplus and unreturnable stock amounted to $10,000. Of this 12% was dead
stock. Obviously the book store cannot afford to continue this policy of
over-stocking. This year having in
mind the fact that in previous years
the estimates had been extravagant,
and that there would be a considerable number of second-hand books
for sale, the estimates were reduced
before ordering, with the unfortunate
result that some are still crying out
for texts.
As far as prices are concerned, it
must be remembered that the book
store, having stocked with some
lines bought when paper was high,
was forced to charge more than down
town stores, whose orders were more
recent and ' consequently filled at a
more recent price. Prices of new
stock, received since the session began, compare favorably wth those of
other stores. The new supply of
Clay's Economics is priced at $1.20
while down town stores charge $1.25.
However, in spite of all that may
be urged in extenuation, we fail to
see why the University Book Store,
which is supposed to enjoy special
rates in purchasing, is not able to
make more than a five or ten cent
reduction in price. Neither are we
willing to accept the situation which
says that the student must necessarily pay for unwise purchasing on
the part of the Book Store. Estimates in previous years may have
been extravagant and have led to
the acquisition of high priced stock,
but that is what those in charge of
the book store are there to decide,
and financial loss due to bad judgment on their part should be borne
by them, not by the student.
Those people who did not give their
addresses when registering, are advised to turn them into the office as

Beautiful thought for Varsity week—;
clean up the campus! We all know'
that as a Campus it doesn't exist, but
nevertheless we might remove the
old lunch papers and the rubbish generally, which gathers outside the
men's locker and common-rooms. It
might help our self-respect.
Can't someone find a shelter for the
homeless Publicity Campaign? The
officials of the Students' Council have
simply nothing to do while the members of the Campaign use their office.
We noticed that the Musical Society
made its coffee at an unusually early
hour last week. Such delicate allurement was surely not premeditated?
The weather has certainly been unkind to our street-corner signs. Has
anyone the courage to suggest what
we do if it rains on Saturday?

It is no small thing td- have■■ seeit
and known—thiB week of campaigning*
—and it will be no small thing to
which to look back. Cynics have re*
ferred to enthusiasm, especially youth*
ful enthusiasm, as a cheap thing. And
if by cheap is meant that which id
poured out in abundance—generously
—unsparingly—then .has this week
justified the appellation? There 13
little cause for wonder if the sight
of youth, so certain of itself and sd
prodigal, should.. stir envy, in minds
to which enthusiasm is a rare and
hoarded thing.
It has been a privilege td the stud*
ent leaders, and to the students, to,
taste the stern delight of battle in
such company. All who have devoted
themselves to the campaign in the
only manner in which an ideal can be
served—wholeheartedly and unselfish*
ly—have found their reward in the
discharge of their self-appointed
duties. It could not occur to them to
ask, nor could they understand, any
other form of recompense. Truly
"Youth is a splendid thing to spend."

Leaving shooting irons and chalk
at the door, the professors and men
of, Science hit the high spots at their
smoker on Saturday night, held at
the G. W. V. A. auditorium.
The big noise started at 8.20 when
the Science Jaze Orchestra rendered
sweet music. Too bad that the programme was so crowded and that the
orchestra didn't get more of a chance.
Yes, and even the speeches failed to
reveal more about the tall slim lady
Of olive fame; Doc Davidson unfortunately was missing!
Apples, pipes, even the punch was
forgotten in the stampede for front
seats when the "Lodge quintette" arrived. The rhythm of their dance
might be termed "simple harmonic"
and seemed to cast quite a spell on
famous Scotty R.
Bill Robinson, from the Orpheum,
was the original kid with a line and
nearly raised the roof when he started bouncing. His performance was
followed by the appearance of Miss
Nina Porter and Glen Nixon in an
amusing sketch on the "Bug House."
Songs, recitations, and the Science
Quartette added to the success of the
evening, and when the boxing started,
well perhaps the third pipe or maybe
the punch was responsible—but the
floor agitated like a stormy night at
sea. In spite of this, some mean wallops were put across from each of
the Science years.
President Klinck arrived in time to
make a short speech worthy of a Science smoker, part of it sounded like
■"Co-Eds, thick as autumn leaves, and
some thicker"—but as to this, well,
mebbe so, mebbe not.

Editor "Ubyssey."
Dear Sir,—The University Library;
contains several copies of "Who's Who,"
a book which is considered necessary
in every reading room, although the
people therein are all strangers to us,
whom we shall never meet.
Would not a University "Who's Who"
be a desirable book? Especially if it
were illustrated with photographs? It
would help to co-ordinate faces with
personalities, to inspire the younger students to great achievements, and generally to save time and worry. The
University Annual does this in great
measure, but it does not come out until
the year is over. However it would
serve as a nucleus for something more
Yours truly,
P.   S.—I   haven't  found  out  who  she  is
Dear  Sir:—
I would like permission, through your
column, to express my opinion, and incidentally that of the majority of the
girls of Arts '23, on a recent occurence.
At our last class meeting it was suggested that we draw for partners for
the coming class party in order that
everyone should be able to enjoy themselves at what should be, for, the members, the best event of the term. It is
regrettable that, according to the expressed opinion of a gentleman of the
class, the anticipation of the event
should be spoiled for the men by the
fact that they must take to the party
the 'woman' whom they had the misfortune to draw. It was also suggested
that twenty seniors of other departments might not be found willing to
accept invitations under similar circumstances. I might say that, happening
to be one who drew a blank last year,
I invited a friend in Science, who was
apparently glad to have the opportunity of meeting the girls of '23, and did
not seem to be disappointed. But outside of this I am extremely sorry to
find such a lack of class spirit among
the students of the senior year. It is
a very poor precedent for coming seniors
to find in us a group of men and women
whose pettty selfishness prevents them
from spending a very agreeable evening together. I am sure that if the
men meet us half-way in stamping out
this feeling of constraint we can still
make this our most successful year,
socially and otherwise, for co-operation
is necessary in all branches of class
Yours very truly,
M. E.  T.  '23.

The Sophs- have set another pre*

held its hike to one of the athletic
games. Here is what Lome Morgan
says about the affair. "You have set
a precedent that the other classes
will do well to follow."
At a class meeting! last week the

ing a hike if it interfered with the;
attendance to the Miller Cup Rugby;
Florence McLeod offered the suggestion that was accepted by the
During the game "Brick" McLeod
and K. Schell led the Varsity and
class yells.
When it was all over the hikers
went back to the Pavilion where they
found the committee had lunch almost prepared. With the aid of a
piano and traps, time was spent
dancing until the coffee was ready.
Miss H. McConnell was the patroness and the Miller Cup team the
guests  of  honour.
The evening was spent in games
and dancing. L. H. Woodard, Edith
Lockard, B. Welch, were the musicians for the dancing. The committee
consisted of Grace -Smith, Florence
McLeod, Doris Shorney, R. L. McLeod, J. W. B. Shore, H. B. Smith,
K.  Schell  and many helpers.
Ask the Rugby team if Arts '25
have good parties and what they

member of Arts '25 last year, died

whirlwind of success. You can't get
away from the Campaign. Walk
down Granville or Hastings and it
stares you in the face from the front
of the street cars, from the store
windows, and from the very pavement you're walking on. Go home at
night and pick up your paper and
there it is again, staring at you
from every page you look at. No

help hearing about the needs of the

The usual meeting of the Students'
Council was held last Monday evening The chief point of interest
which arose during the meeting was
the connection to be preserved between the Council and the Campaign
Committee. It was found necesBary
that a closer working with the Campaign w&s imperative, as under present conditions the Council was deprived of much of its initiative. In
order to ensure this connection a resolution was passed that the Camr
paign Committee's minutes be read
and discussed;at the Council's weekly
meetings. ■
Another point of interest was the
letter received from the National
League of Students soliciting the
membership of the U. B. C. This is
a nation-wide organization consisting
of almost all of the pritish universities and has a membership of 60,000.
Some reluctance was expressed in
joining this league but the question
was referred to a committee consisting of Miss Weld and Messrs. Robertson and Lewis for discussion.
At a meeting of the Agricultural
Discussion Club held last Wednesday,
Messrs. Buckley and Murphy of the
Negative received the decision over
Messrs. Atkinson and Fulton of the
Affirmative. The subject under discussion was: Resolved that a 48 hour
week be adopted on the "farm."
Some interesting facts were brought
forward by speakers on both Negative
and Affirmative. Fulton provoked
some laughter when, after one of his
opponents had given some of his
experiences on the farm, he stated
that farm hands were generally of
low mental and moral character.
Profs. Barss, Goulding, and Moe were
the judges and gave some useful
criticism  to  the debators.
The next meeting of the Club will
be held next Wednesday, the subject
for discussion being "Resolved that
the farmer should organize for politics in B. C." The Freshmen have
the Affirmative and Third Year the
The Annual Aggie banquet held
last Friday at the Citizens Club was
a decided success. The Faculty, and
Aggie Students and all those connected with the Faculty were out in full
force and an enjoyable time was
.spent. Speeches were made by the
President of the Undergrad, Jack
Woods, and also by Ab. Richards,
President of the Alma Mater, and
Dean Clement. A skit put on by the
Sophomore Class went well. The
best laugh of the evening was obtained when Sperry Phillips and
Charles Barton sang an original
comic song, the former taking the
part of a grad and the latter of a
Freshette. Wolfe-Jones led a couple
of Aggie yells and the Aggies dispersed—all feeling that it was the
best Aggie banquet yet.

Mr. Godowsky regretted deeply his
inability to appear before the V. B. C.
students on Wednesday of last week,
owing to the fact that his boat sailed
at 2 p.m. effectively preventing him
playing at 3. But he has agreed,
thanks to the offices of Miss Laverock, to appear in a concert talk before the students, after returning from
his Japanese and Oriental t°ur some
time in February. He will be with us
either the day before or the day after
his recital. He wishes to thank the
students for their interest in his playing and will undoubtedly give us a
musical lecture that will be of the
greatest possible value to students of
The recital of Wednesday last ,vas
an undoubted success. From the first
number, the Berceuse from "Jocelyn,"
by Mr. Kania, to the work of the instrumental trio . in Eventide, every
member was greatly enjoyed. The
success of the afternoon was mainly
due to Miss M. Pittendrigh, convenor
of programme who performed her
work admirably.
The feature of the recital was the
number of artists belonging to Arts
'26, no less than five of the contributors being new to U. B. C. Miss
Harrison, was the star of the performance, giving a brilliant rendering of
Mozart's D Major Concerto, ably assisted by Mr. Ira Swartz, who has appeared several times before. Miss.
Kerr deserves special commendation
for her singing. Her articulation and
enunciation were excellent, and gave
great pleasure to all critics of vocal
"Oh, Hush Thee, My Baby," sung
by Misses Tennant, Myres, and Cassidy, was greatly appreciated by the
audience. Lullabys usually seem tc
find a sensitive chord in one's heart.
A piano solo, "Si oiseau j'etais,':
was splendidly rendered by Miss Ro-
sie Marin. This was followed by
"March of the Heroes," which sent
thrills down one's spine, and last came
"Eventide," a delightfully whimsical
and  imaginative  selection.
Refreshments of coffee and cake
were served at the close. Fortunately
for the committee in charge, only
about 200 out of over 450 remained
to partake.
The second meeting of the Chess
Club on last Monday, was a distinct
success from the standpoint of play.
Some more players promise to be with
us next time. All players are looking forward eagerly to the tournaments. Those present drew for positions on the cratometer. At the end
of the afternoon the scale showed
names as follows: Craig, Taylor,
Lambert, Anthony, Forster, Hislop,
Dunn, Marsh, Richardson, Freeman,
Shaw, Mellish.
At present the cratometer does not
stand in order of meritorious play,
but in a few weeks hence it will.

Mr. Muck So Udly Behind
Mr. Muck wishes to inform student
body that he intends to support the
campaign to his  last dollar.
Induced by patriotic motives Mr.
.Muck visited the University site yesterday and succeeded with the help
of one or two others, in erecting a
pyramid, which will be the first completed building. Mr. Muck became
tired of lifting the heavy boulders, being used to handling lighter stuff so
he went on with his
Canvas tennis trousers which he
had with him as he feared a hot reception.     He   was  disappointed  how
ever when he found that his whole
district was an uncleared swamp.
Not to be discouraged he	
Wrote some slogans, some poor and
some very poor. "Hot stuff" he remarked, as he watched his brain
children shrivel up in the October
grate. Then seizing his pen he hastily scratched this painful effort.
Dear fellow citizens:
I don't know which of you are influential but I'll take a chance.
At this point inspiration failed him,
so he departed to borrow a Ford for
the parade.
It  wasn't  many  years  ago
The wilderness was here,
When with the gun and powder men
Would hunt the fickle deer.
But things are very different
To what was practiced then,
The dears go round with powder now,
And hunt the fickle men.

2. All men to canvass residential
districts, and to ask for the lady of
the house. If she who answers the
door appears to be over 30, say: "Is
your Mother at home?" If she is under twenty call her Madam. If she is
somewhere between these ages—figure it out' for yourself.

University of Washington, Seattle,
Oct. 16, (P.I.N.S.)—A bureau of customs and traditions, to consist of nine
members—three faculty, three alumni
and three from the undergraduate
body—has - been established' by President Suzzalo. This body will handle
all questions of precedent, and will
make definite settlements of uncertain customs affecting the University.
The tradition bureau came as an
outgrowth of a movement started some
time ago by a committee of alumni to
more definitely formulate and organize Washington's past customs that
might eventually merge into traditions.

University of Saskatchewan, Oct.,
1922—On the banks of the Saskatchewan river on Tuesday evening, a
majority of the students of the University, enjoyed a most delightful
"weiner roast," with the officials of
the Students' Christian Movement as
hosts. The party was told off in
groups, each group to its own fire. As
part of the entertainment each group
contributed its own special "stunt."
Addresses were delivered by Pres-

A Warning to the Thoughtless.
•It has been called to the attention
of the Registrar that several students
have selected for themselves courses
that are not in conformity with Calendar regulations.
A class card issued from the Registrar's office is a notice to the head
of the department that the student
has made application at the Registrar's office for that class, but is not
a statement that the student's course
of study has been examined in detail
and approved.
The Calendar regulations in reference to the courses open to students
in the different years are clear, and
students must choose their courses
on their own responsibility, though
if any student is in doubt with regard to any course or regulation all
possible information and assistance
will be given to him on request.
Students asking for any change in
course must make application through
the Registrar's office, in writing, and
all such applications must contain a
full. statement of the reason for request.

number of orders for tuxedos, and the fellows say he
turns them out just right.
