haiscbres Meralomas
"ake Lead in Cup Series
Ruggers Wade To 8-3 Win
VARSITY'S first string rugby team forged to the front in the Miller Cup
series when the collegians outspattercd the Meraloma cupholders in
the mud-pits of Brockton Point by 6-3 on Saturday. U.B.C. now has
one point lead over the rest, having gained five out of a possible six points
at the expense of the leading contenders and now has only the tall-end
teams to beat. The college club is the present holder of both the Tisdall
Mid Rounsofell Cups (denoting the B. C. championship) and needs only the
Mlllor silverware to make a clean sweep.
The Blue and Gold found the muddy field to its liking and were all over
the Kitsilano crew in the flrst half.
In the flrst five minutes, the Varsity
forwards dribblud over the Meralomas
line but the fullback reached the ball
first for a safety touch.
Play centered around the Orange
and Black 26 yard line. The Meraloma forwards were heeling the ball
out of the scrum regularly but the
threes could not handle the slippery
After about ten minutes of milling,
Varsity was awarded a free kick for
feet-up and Walter (Bud) Murray
gave the students their   flrst   three
Joints by whipping the ball over the
ar from 40 yards out.
Meralomas staged two or three
dangerous three-quarter runs but the
wet ball caused fumbles which spoiled
aU chances to score. Bert Barratt
fooled the Kitsilano defense by sending Gaul away on a blind side run,
and the elusive Bob sprinted 40 yards.
finally passing to Martin who dived
over the line for a try. The .sodden
ball spoiled the convert.
Forwards Star
The game settled down to a mauling match between the rival packs.
Murray, Mason and Ledingham were
ploughing into the melee like battering rams. Mitchell, a Freshman from
King George High School, turned in
a brilliant performance,
Both sides lost several chances to
score, the wet ball being responsible.
Phil Barratt sent the threes away
with a well-placed cross kick but a
forward pass halted the play. The
Meraloma threes threatened several
times but fumbles and deadly tackling by Cleveland kept the slate
blank.   Young, playing his flrst senior
!rame, displayed efficient tackling abil-
Varsity maintained its six point advantage until ten minutes from the
end of the second half. The forwards
had a gala day, with the backs generally in the role of spectators. Martin
and Rogers followed up consistently
and gained many yards. The Kitsilano
brigade fought desperately to equalise
and kept the Blue and Cold on the
defensive. Twice the hall was dribbled over the U.B.C. line but each time
a two-bit kick was the only result.
Cleveland hurt his shoulder in a tackle
and took a short rest. Gaul and
Estabrook got away for a 40 yard
run but were forced out of play.

Education '31 held a theatre party
at the Capitol Theatre on Thursday
night. This was the flrst event of
the year in which the class aa a whole
At tne close of the four o'clock lecture, the class went down to the cafe
for supper. Transportation in cars
was arranged for. Slight complications arose when it was discovered
that the weather did not permit riding
in rumble seats. However, all arrived at the Capitol, some a little
cramped, and found a section on the
ground floor had been reserved for
the party,
The performance as a whole was
appreciated as only educationists
could appreciate it. There was a
good deal of "applied psychology" in
the remarks which wore passeil from
time to time. The audience was
favored by a rendering of "My Gal
Sal" which definitely showed the benefits of training in sol-fa notation.
Thelma Mahon, vice-president of
the class, had charge of the arrangements. Prof. Black, honorary vice-
president, was present.

U.B.C. Footballers
Soundly Drubbed
By Engenders
A tidal wave entitled Sons of England engulfed the hitherto undefeated
Varsity Senior Soccer mudlarks, Saturday, at Cambie Street and took
them for a 4-1 ride.
The Varsity team lost deservedly
for it had absolutely no idea of adapting itself to conditions, while the
Merry Englanders settled down immediately and were a goal up inside
five minutes as a rlppy forward punctured a bewildered defense. The Varsity wing halves were not covering
their men this giving Chalmers and
Roberts too much to handle. The
collegians awoke from stupor and for
fifteen minutes penned tbe Red, White
and Blue into its own half. Cooke
missed two open goals through the
inability of his left foot to function,
but at the same time, was the best
and cleverost of the forwards. Costain was well marked but nevertheless made valiant effofts to break
One minute before half time the
Varsity defenders took a holiday and
politely watched the Englanders notch
a second counter from one yard range.
After the usual council of war the
Varsity warriors improved. Yet after
ten minutes play, McGregor saved
at full length only for the loose ball
to be netted by the unmarked centre
forward. Two minutes later McGregor watched a long shot bound
into the net for the fourth point. At
this point Dave Todd decided that he
would have nothing to do with the
rest of the team and went to business of bis own. From this point on
he was the best forward on the field
and before the end tricked two men
to score the solo Varsity goal.

First President
Is Eulogized
At Service
Silent tribute to the memory of Dr.
Wesbrook, deceased President of tbe
University of British Columbia, was
paid by the Senior Class yesterday
noon. Dr. Sage in giving the address
retold briefly the story of the founding of tbe University and how the
memory of its first President was inextricably linked with the   founding.
His death was hastened by bis untiring work for the University that
bis breadth of vision had conceived,
said Dr. Sage, and nt the early age
of fifty he was called to rest before
he could see the culmination of his
At the close of Dr Sago's eulogy,
Bert Griffin, President of 'III, placed
a wreath on the grave.
There will be a special meeting of
the Alma Mater Society in the Auditorium on Friday at noon to consider
the following motion;
That the $5.00 fee for a fund to
further the construction of a Stadium
lie made compulsory for all members
of the Alma Mater Society, and that
the Board of Governors be approached
with regard to having the Bursar collect this fee along with the second
installment of the University fees.

Rugby squad of U. B. C. left lust night
on I ho prairie jaunt in an attempt to retain the Intercollegiate Championship
of Western Canada and along wilh it
the Hardy Cup. Led by Dr. Gordon
Burke, the Varsity mentor, the boys
will fuco the University of Alberta aggregation at Edmonton Wednesday and the
Saskatchewan outfit at Saskatoon Saturday. Tlie Varsity team has shown great
improvement in its Westminster game,
and "Doc" Burke is satisfied that his
proteges will take a lot of beating if the
Collegiate Title is to stay on the Prairies.
Saturday's battle was all Varsity. Tho
students opened with a rush and in spite
of the atrocious weather conditions
handled the bull remarkably well. Tho
U. B, C. line was opening up the Wildcat
line until it strikingly resembled a sieve,
ami only tho muddy field prevented at
least two touchdowns. Finally in the
second quarter Gavin Dirom, the great
Varsity half, broke through to open the
soore wilh a pretty touch. The lone
West minster tally came in the second
period when Cokle Shields hoisted a long
boot to the deadline.
The students wont into the scrum
with a vigor that would do justice to a
matador, und a beautiful forward pass,
Chodat to Jestley, paved the way for the
second try, which like the first went unconverted. On tho kick-off Dirom
plowed his way through tbe mire for
fifty yards, tore off twenty more uround
right end, and Keith Hudreen, a Freshman star curried it through centre to
finish the scoring. Varsity continued to
press but wore slowed up by the heavy
going which made any further scoring

Freshmen were defined as flrst year
students and all those entering the
university for the flrst time. This
means that with the Freshmen will
be not only Senior Matrlc students
but also some Victoria College athletes. This strong aggregation will
include the frosh stars, Curie, Osborne and Thomas who represented
the University at Alberta as well as
Alf Allen and Hugh Smith who ran
for the Freshmen last year. Costain
and Agnew are others who should
show up well. The upper classmen
who will compete against them will
include Glen Ledingham, Bob Alpen,
Bill Thornber, George Grant and Nelson Allen. Even with their line-up
it is expected that the Varsity men
will have a hard battle to emerge victorious from the contest.

Prominence of U.B.C. Coeds
Stressed by Eastern Students
Stone Praises Exchange System
(Reprinted from McGiil Daily)
j(jM pleased to bo, back at Old McGiil, although not in the least regretting
J[    my year at U.B.C," remarked Fred V, Stone, flrst exchange student
from McGiil, when interviewed by the Daily on Saturday.   In a lengthy
conversation he remarked on the exchange system, and on the general differences between the two universities.
"I believe the exchange system offers something really worth while for
third year students, particularly those in the Faculty of Arts," he said. "It
gives the student a first hand onportunity to broaden his outlook by living
in a distant part of Canada and mlng-i i.-
ling with students in a university
where the general atmosphere is decidedly different."
When asked what advantages and
disadvantages he found as an exchange student, Stone was of the
opinion that discontinuance of associa
tion in the home university, and the
necessity of establishing new connecting in the new university, were the
chief defects. "However," he stated,
"from my experience at U.B.C. and
the generous way in which I was received and treated by everyone connected with that institution, I should
say that the advantages quite outweigh the disadvantages."
Should  Know Own  University
By way of improvement, in the exchange system, he suggested that any
student who was seriously considering muking application for the exchange should take steps to familiarise himself as much as possible with
all the student activities and the way
in which they are governed at his
home university. "Many questions
are asked concerning these things
which are likely to cause the visiting
student considerable embarrassment
if he has not a ready answer."
U.B.C. More Co-educational
Discussing the difference which he
noticed between tho two universities,
Stone affirmed that U.B.C. was a coeducational institution to a greater extent than McGiil. He substantiated
his opinion by saying, "The presence
of women students at class meetings
and in the Debating Union was a
novelty for me. So also was the Coed Ball, an affair for which the women
do all the inviting, arranging for
tickets and programs and the paying
of the bills. It is one of tbe largest
and most popular dances of the year.
The Students' Council is composed of
both men and women, there being at
least throe women members in a
council of ten."
A new gymnasium, so long discussed at McGiil, has become a reality for U.B.C. It was financed by
the students themselves. This has
given considerable impetus to sport,
says Stone. The girls' basketball
team, which toured Europe last summer, and which gained what was considered the world's basketball championship, speaks well, he believes, for
the part which women play in sports
at the university on tho west coast.

Junior Grid Squad
Defeat Dodekas
In 9-0 Battle
lu a welter of mud and under a downpour of rain the Varsity Junior Canadian
Ruggers ran through the Dodekas. last
year's champions, to win their second
victory this year, !) - I). The game,
which wus played at McBride Park was
hard fought although the Dodekas were
at no time dangerous being kept pretty
well penned in their own territory. In
spite of tlio slipperiness of the ball Varsity fumbled very infrequently, ultho igh
the opposing hacks had trouble handling
the ball. Both sides tried several forward passes but none were completed.
The students kicked off and after recovering a Dodeka fumble soon afterwards, found themselves in a position to
score. They marched ten or fifteen
yards down the field on u series of line
plunges nnd finally Morrow went over
the fine on an end-run before the first
five minutes of play wore up. A little later
in tlie same period Dwyer came within
an nee of scoring again but the Dodeka
line held and Varsity kicked to dead-line
for one point.
In the second quarter tbey again
kicked for one point after being stopped
on their opponents twenty yard line.
For tho rest of the game tho collegians
remained on tlie defensive keeping the
Dodekas in their own half of tho field,
The latter seemed unable to get going

Letters To The Editor
The Co-Eds Plea
The main objective of the Women's Undergraduate Society
has been the construction of a Women's Union Building.
The definite need for such a building on the campus is
apparent to all U.B.C. students. At present there is no building
furnished to accomodate the particular activities of the Women's
Undergraduate Society. The gymnasium and common rooms are
suitable for certain functions, but a more spacious and comfortable domain is the aim of U.B.C. co-eds.
The Women's Union Building will be the centre of the women's activities on the campus. Here debates, meetings of thej
various women's organizations and social functions will be held
to advantage. Such meetings would further the opportunity for
the extension of fellowship among the women students of the
The Women's Undergraduate Society started the collection
of funds for this building some years ago. Up to the present
about $5,000 has been realized. This total collection was made
possible by the proceeds from the P'all Bridge, held each yearj
by the Society, and from the Co-ed Ball inaugurated two years ago.
This year, instead of the Bridge Tea, the Women's Undergraduate Society has planned a novel means of swelling the Union
building funds. The innovation takes the form of a Fall Fashion Show to be held Saturday, Nov. 1, at Hudson's Bay.
The outcome of this affair depends entirely on every woman student of the University. A certain number of tickets
must be sold to make the Show a success.   Tuum est!
Wanted—Some Laws
The Honor System is supposed to ensure proper student conduct, but such disorders as those of yesterday show that it
does not fill the bill. Damage was done to University property
and several students were injured during the inter-faculty
clashes. Some definite restraints are needed to prevent these
outbreaks. The Honor System must be supplemented by some
laws—and this, of course, means that, for all practical purposes,
it has failed. Most students are willing to do the decent and honorable thing in ordinary circumstances, but no vague "Honor
System" can control all phases of undergraduate discipline. There
are some laws in the A.M.S. Constitution, and more should be
Student riots are infrequent and seldom serious affairs. We
do not demand that unnatural restraint be put upon the more exuberant spirits. If two factions are spoiling to fight, let them
retire to some convenient field and stage it there. What we protest against is the senseless destruction of property, personal
and public, that accompanies these rows when they take place
on the campus proper.
Theoretically, the student body has self-government, but
a government that cannot maintain order fails in on. of its most
important duties. It is up to the Students' Council to take official cognizance of yesterday's events. By-law 31 of the Constitution provides for a Discipline Committee, but nothing has
been heard of it this year, although it is supposed to report to
the Council on the Initiation program. The Initiation, by the
way, was criticized by the "Ubyssey" for lack of sufficient organization and supervision. We think it is high time the Discipline Committee began to function. The damage that has been
done should be paid for by those responsible, and regulations
and penalties to prevent future disturbances should be announced.
Let us have some action from the Council and the Discipline
Editor, The Ubyssey.

Another Interesting quotation that will no
doubt strike a responsible chord in our correspondent's breast Is the following from an
American general:
"We all know there wtll be a nest war,
despite talk of peace pacts . . . There Is no
necessity for this country to be unprepared
for the nest war . . , W* can get around
these disarmament pacts and be prepared fer
the neit war only if we adopt some sort of
program to maintain Industrial preparedness."
On the other hand. Dr, U. W. Lamkln, Pres.
National Education Assn. of the United States
"When the people of one country, through
ihe education of Its youth, come to under-
itand the ideals, aspirations, and the hopes of
ii her countries, then they will no longer sub-
mil to war, any more than a civilised community  will  tolerate a street brawl."
And Sir rVtmc Howard:
"11 Is belter a hundred thousand times to be
beaten over sn arbitrstion esse thsn to be
victorious In s modern wsr. Thst Is Ihe
lesnon wc have to learn and lo tesch . . . let
in highly reuolve never hy one Jot or Utile
in promote Ihe rause of wars, or to make men
believe In the necessity of Ihe ordeal by battle.
I we run but cultivate the Will to Peace at
home and abroad, the great fight for peace
will   be   won."
Ami  Frank   H.   Kcllog:
"If the people are minded Ihat there shall
be no war, there will not be. We are all determined Ihat the curse oi war ahall not again
devastate nations. The most certain insurance against this is the training of the thoughts

Dear   Sir:
One oimniil help but admire the keen alert-
news of your reporting -taff this year, cape-
clally when one contrasts it with the reporting
stnrT of your paper two years ago.
It is encouraging to note too, that at last
something Interesting has been found nt n
Students' Council meeting, even If It wasn't
adorned in  a gown.
Please do not misunderstand my congratulations. They are not directed at three In charge
of your paper. If Ihe latter were of the same
inlilirr as your reporters they would have
placed Ihlnus of front page Importance on
page one  Instead  of on   pane six.
Hut for now, tiiiidlc-im. Let not this letter
dixliirli either ynur l'.O.T.I', propaganda or
Council's dream that It is a governing body
rather than a gown-uniformed, goose-stepping
I nn< sure yon will nitrif) with me. Mr.
Kdltor, thai Council needs Education 'ill. If
for r,u other reason th^n In protect Its private
correspondence from the ravages of keenly
nlcrl   Ubyssey reporter*.
Vinirs   for   rcpri'iientnlion,

Kdltor, "Ubyssey."
Dear Sir:
I am writing this letter tu let you know
that I am seriously considering cancelling my
subscription to the "Ubyaaey," 1 am so Incensed at th* column of on* of your colum-
Ist* that 1 am ready even now to go boldly
to Council's office and demand back the money
I parted with In Innocence and faith, th*
money exploited from me by false promises
of forthcoming value, and even now being
used to print suoh—such heinous articles ao
th* on* whlc h confronted my pained eyes In
your last Issue. 1 tell you, my Ideals won't
stand for it- -are my mothers tears, my
father's prayer*, all to be for naught? Nol
While so 1 live and have my being 1 shall
denounce with my staunch Waterman In
vigorous words the cold-hearted callousness
of this culumnlsi.
I refer to the article un Country Life,
signed by KM (.'. who undoubtedly Is the producer of the column called "fun and Funds-
mentals," ll is unite evident that this writer
has never actually experienced country life,
or he I she? i would not have been able to recount In such u light-hearted way the tortures
he (she?) Indicted on one of Ood's falthfulost
creatures, and th* terrible sufferings heroically endured therein by that creature.
When 1 started to read the article the
monstrous horror of it grew on me; I was
overcome when the writer told how he walked
round and round the cow making Insulting remarks until thnt animal beenme wrought into
an Intense nervous state. As for me, I became
nothing hut a mass of seething pain, my left
arm waved wildly about my head, and my
right hnml smote Ineffectually my chest. But
the peak of nil climaxes, the unutterably ghastly unbearable worst came when the writer
said he gritted hi* teelh. At thl* point I
unite forgot myself, and moaned whimperingly, for I had thought that no one had gritted
hit, teeth at a cow since the iniquitous days
of the Spunlsh Inquisition.    The cruelty of It
why. 1 don't believe even an Aggie would
do a thing like that nowadays.
This then, dear Mr, Editor, Is why I write
yon, to appeal to your sterling worth—let the
C.O.T.C. keep on being militaristic, and join
me In my noble mission In life, to oust forever
these shallow Journalists that are capable of
such consummate dastardly conduct,
I am confident that your soul has revolted
with mine against these barbarous monstrosities, and In fact It i s this feeling OiBt keeps
me from unite altogether severing my connections with your paper. Clothe yourself
with courage, Mr. Kdltor, take up your sword
of knowledge that might Is right, and earn
forever the thanks of that sorrowful, soulful,
misused, abused, creature, the cow.

Dear Sir:
Relating to an editorial appearing in the
October Uth issue of the Ubyssey, anent proposal to establish a "short course" In Fire
Prevention and Control to be conducted under
the auspices of the University of British Columbia, th* article referred to appearing in a recent Issue of on* of th* City'* newspapers,
apparently conveyed a wrong Impression
to you.
A short course a* suggested would extend
over a period uf from four to Ave day*
conducted under the sponsorship of the University, and as you will readily see, could not
be offered in th* curriculum, To dat* mor*
than a scor* of th* State Universities have already established such course* and they have
proved undoubtedly of very material benefit
to the public at large.
it Is understood that many of the famous
European Universities, also Harvard, Yal* and
I bellsv* McOlll, nuw Inelud* a four year court*
In fir* Protection Engineering, but I am
afraid thnt many years will pass before tueh
I* warranted In thl* part ot th* glob*.
However, when one consider*, and It Is admitted by ih* beat of authorities, that the matter of Kir* Pr*v*ntlon constitutes one of, If
not the greatest economical problem of the
day, every effort should bo extended to help
forward any project whieh may tend to decrease the enormous yearly loss from fir*,
I'espite the numerous scientific and mechanical Improvement* developed in fire fighting
appliances and equipment, fire loss** continue
to Increase, until now there I* an average lot*
of $6.11,000,000, and an estimated loss of life
of fifteen thousand persons every year on the
North American Continent alone.
It Is noted in the Initial paragraph ot your
editorial that you "agree that the cours* would
w«'ll warrant It* adoption," and truetlng that
the foregoing remarks set forth the objective
in clearer detail, I remain,
Yours faithfully,

and 1 watched the luminous green disc
travel along the wall in search of us,
Brighter nnd brighter it glowed, and
waxed und waned Tn alio us tlie Incarnate
fiend at the controls adjusted the focus.
We fully realised thai once the (loudly
ray touched us we would end our days
as criminal luiiaticn. Hope for mercy
wns futile. We were artsmen in the
hands of a science graduate, the insidious
Dr, Chung Huey.
The low humming of the ('rime Machine grew in ititetiMity until it resembled
tho silence of the library concourse.  Tho
ratoh of light darted from side to side,
n haste we dromied on our hands nnd
knees to avoid its path. The ray approached the floor, and we crawled
swiftly across the room with the green
disc close behind. With all my heart I
wished that Hog. Hrotniley was in my
Once it noarly reached Anderson, who
ducked his head just in time. Another
instant and the Publications Hoard
would have had a graft scandal on its
hands. Then the disc seemed to slide
along the floor, forcing us to jump over
it. 1 cleared it by nn inch, and thought
of Editor Orantham having to write a
sport report.
The puce was killing us, fraternity
pledge though I was. 1 suddenly grasped
the diabolical ingenuity of Chang Suey,
and his plan of calculating torture. It
was just a matter of time. Hoon we
would become exhausted, and in the state
of collapse would at lust Im* overtaken
with the Crime Wave. Even Arts '33
were innocent children when it came to
tormenting their captives, beside the
suave Chinese (scientist.
Anderson and I staggered around the
room for what seemed hours, with the
diabolical green light pursuing us. Many
a time in the Alpha Delta house had I
seen wandering green lights in the air
after a celebration, but nothing could
ever exceed the nightmare of that small
room with the tell-tale disc of the Crime
Wave. At lust I sank to the floor. "Oood
bye, Anderson," 1 murmured, "See you
in jail."
What was that?
Suddenly an unearthly hubbub sounded outside the door, shots, shouts and
shrieks, and the trampling of many feet.
The green disc wavered, stood still, then
gradually grew dim and vanished. Arnold Anuorsou, iron man though he was,
staggered weakly against the wall.
What, had happened? We waited in
Confusedly we heard the holts of our
door being drawn and a key turned in
the lock. "The police, at last!" exclaimed Anderson, "I could even love
Sitting Hull after this!''
As we leaned against the wall, the dour
ojH'iied and we beheld it crowd of scowling Chinamen armed with all sorts of
weapons, staling at  us in amazement.
Anderson feebly tried to draw his revolvers, but they were knocked out of
his hands as tlie foremost Oriental strode
into the cell. My heart stood still with
terror as 1 realized that he was wearing
the crimson robe of a priest of Hunt!
He turned ami barked a volley of commands in Chinese to his followers. In
an instant we were surrounded and
bound hand and foot. 1 groaned with
despair. All my efforts had been in vain.
1 was again in the clutches of the mysterious Society of Hunt. For onee I
agreed with Maurice Deslliisay. I
strongly disapproved of secret societies
and fraternities.
All was lost.
All eye* were turned to the door where
stood the figure of a woman. In an instant my captors prostrated themselves
on the floor, as reverently as neophytes
before Ihe (irand Scribe of Thoth. Anderson and I stood alone.
"Tlie Ciolden   I^otus!"  murmured  tho
leader,  in   English,   "How  down  to  the
(iolden Lotus, High  Priestess of Hunt."
I  continued  to stare at   the  priosles»
in  amazement.
I'or she was uo other than the Woman
of the Sedan!

The lot of the columnist Is hard. He
In viewed with suspicion by the editorial
stuff and is always under rigid surveillance. Editorial views us to what should
go into a column are continually at variance with the columnists own theories.
My friend, the editor, makes full use of
his authority. In the past, mayhem has
Im'cii committed on this column liecause
certain |M>rtions were not in agreement
with the editorial dignity, etc. And now
I have been roblied of a choice paragraph, liecause il did agree with the
official "I'bywiey" policy. However, my
many readers will not be deprived of the
morsel, since it is to ap'xuir in the formal
editorial columns, rewritten and, of
course, expanded, it sounds tough, but
such is the kingdom of Orantham.
1 noticed last week that my old friind
Maurice Percy DesBrisny, who, I believe,
once hold a position on this paper, has
taken to letter writing, Not only was a
replica of his extraordinary oafigraphy
displayed on page four, but a further example of his own jieouliar literary style
was exhibited in the correspondence
column. I feel impelled to remark upon
his missive since he refers to my own
writings in the course of his discourse.
I suggest that Maurice Percy turn his
talents to compiling questionnires and
guessing games. Then he could ask his
meaningless questions to his heart's content. He asks if I think the 0. T. C. was
established "solely to create a bodyguard
for university senators." Apparently the
man is trying to bo humorous.
His catechism seems to Imply that had
the senate acceded to the dcmtmds of the
A.M.S. anent the C.O.T.C, student self-
government would have been established
I am afraid that the senate could only
have beon bound of its own free will by
this precedent, and that the student
body would have been exactly as impotent
as it is now.
» « «
The tumult and the shouting dies.
The players and the ref. depart.
I don't know muoh about the game,
But didn't my new coat look smart.
The class of '31 believes in being
'different,' witness its barn danoe, billed
for October 24. I thought at first that
the title meant only that the affair was
to be held in the gym, but meseemeth
that the decorous fourth year men will
scintillate in rustic overalls while the
dainty seuioritii. will coruscate in bucolic
gingham gowns and sun bonnets. Certainly the absence of tux shirts and collars will add to tho communal comfort,
though I fear that there will be heartburnings among the outraged aggies ami
that divers university janitors will find
their work clothes numbered among the
missing, It will be a glorious sight to
behold our solemn editor-in-chief and
our immaculate Mr. Hutchison trying
to be nonchalant in down-at-thc-hecls
overalls and tattered straw hats.
Judging from what my friend, the
president of tlie Women's Gym Club,
tells me, the co-eds of '34 are rather a
torpid lot. Out of over one hundred who
broke bread with the officers of that organization and promised to enroll, only
ten have joined the ranks of the co-ed
oalisthenists. This is indeed a sad state
of affairs. I do not refer to the disappointment of the Chess Club members
who were wont of yore to abandon the
checkered game and crowd to the door
of their club room to witness the entertaining contortions of the gym class in
action. I am thinking of the unprepossessing appearance that the campus will
assume wlien covered with a class of
corpulent sophottes. And even later
when '34 reaches the gown-wearing stage
consider the npcctiielo of a gown draped
around hulking olnwity.    As Hunt home
says, "Oh, horror, horror!"

Eons ago, when we were a freshette,
wo were the same way. They don't seem
to get into the rhythm until their first
year Is past. One hears them say wistfully that they haven't the time for this
ana that; and what a lot of homework
they get. too. And really, imagine staying out here when the daily leotures are
over; I mean it's almost like staying in
after school.
Take the plaint of the Women's Gymnasium Club, for instance. At a large
and well-attended tea many first-year
students expressed an interest in the
affairs of the club, and a wish to join it
But on further consideration, tbey got
•0 little time to attend a olub—especially,
as one individual strikingly put ft, if tho
meetings hapiien to be on an "afternoon
off!" Why, imagine staying out hero all
that timer Besides, they didn't see tho
notice—oh, was it In the "Ubyssey?" I
didn't see it—on the Notice Board? Oh
yes—and where is that now?
Seriously speaking, though, it seems
Snd that nn entire year has to be s|ient
learning the ropes, One misses such a
lot of the fun of university life. Of course,
it is realised that much concent rat ion is
needed to ciwt one's ga.e upon a notice
board or actually read tho "Ubyssey."
And it really is quito a break to turn
from the ways of the old high-school,
and attempt to really live on the campus,
as well as work there. But the break
must ba made, before nny of the greatest
benefits of college life can be realized.
Eventually—why not now?

Ten minutes from the end, Eric
Cameron of the Meralomas, who had
been carrying on a verbal battle with
Mercer, turned his forensic abilities
on the referee and was sent to the
dressing room to cool off. The loss
of Cameron roused his team mates to
a frenzy and within half a minute
they had torn through the Varsity
defense on a dribble and crossed the
line for a try.   The convert failed.
The remainder of the game saw
Varsity hanging on to its three point
lead while the Meralomas spent every
ounce of energy in an effort to score.

It was unfortunate that all the Students should choose the same day for
a holiday. Buckley was sadly at fault
in his checking but H. Wright turned
in a good second half performance.
Kozoolin was not up to standard.
Roberts and Chalmers played great
football and were in no way at fault.
They were merely submerged. Of the
forwards, D. Todd was the pick but
both he and Broadhurst failed to drop
back to assist a harassed defence.
"Bunny" Wright waa merely a
shadow of the will-o-wlsp. who
tied South Hill into knots last week,
Costain did all that could be expected of him while Cooke's form
was a great improvement on last
week, Broadhurst's headwork was extremely weak, in fact, the outstanding fault of the forwards appeared
to be a fear of getting dirty.

According to Stone, the Pep Rally
at U.B.C. is not merely an annual
event made possible by the distribution of free smokes. It accurs frequently and is always well attended.
It is used to arouse student enthusiasm for any sporting or other
club event which is about to take
place. "Beginning at about 12.20 in
the auditorium, the Pep Rally provides a bit of refreshing entertainment and an opportunity for students
to relax during the lunch hour. The
cheer leader is usually on hand, and
some kind of music is nearly always
provided. Even the Debating Union
managed to stage a successful meeting ln honor of the team of Eastern
debaters." Stone believes that the
fact that the University is situated several miles from the hen't of
the city holds the students together
more during the day, and makes such
events more successful.
Many Social Activities
When asked to compare social activities at the two universities, Stone
mentioned in particular dances held
hy individual classes. "Every class
Is allowed a class party which begins
at eight o'clock and ends at midnight," he said. "The ruling on
hours is strictly observed. Each class
also nuts on a tea dance which usually follows some major game. These
always well attended."
In his opinion, the greatest difference between McOlll and U.B.C. lies
in the spirit of each. "There is less
restraint and formality between the
students in the West. Only professors and officials enjoy the dignity of
"Mr." or "Miss." All students are introduced and known by their flrst
"In a sense U.B.C. is a child of
McGiil, since many of its staff are
McGiil graduates, and inasmuch as it
was once affiliated with McGiil as a
junior college. I think that McGiil
may well be proud of U.B.C. and look
forward to the day when sho becomes
recognised as a leading university in
Canada," concluded Stone.
Co-ed Hockeyists
Choose Teams
The game between U. B. C. and Varsity Women's Grass Hockey teams scheduled for Saturday afternoon at Connaught Park was postponed till Wednesday afternoon on the usual practice on
the same ground. The teams have been
lined up with the intention of fielding
one strong team nnd a second team as
opposed to last year's plan of two equal
teams, since the disastrous defeats on
the Saturday previous there have been

Varsity Junior Soccer eleven defeated
Hastings Athletic, 1-0, at Windermere
Park, Saturday.
The students attacked from the
start, and continued to do so for ten
minutes, but had no luck with their
final shots. Play shifted to the other
end, and a penalty was called against
Roper, but the ensuing spot kick went
wide. Play moved once more into
enemy territory, and H. Smith shot
against the bar. Finally, after 30
minutes of play, Legge tried a long
lob from 25 yards out, which drifted
under the bar for what proved to be
the winning goal. Play during the
flrst half was very even, though Varsity was a little more aggressive than
the Athletics.
After the interval Hastings Athletic took charge, Grant Anally relieving. Laurie Todd got in some fine
work on the left wing, and Varsity
pressed hard for a while, but was
then driven back on the defensive,
where it was kept for the remaining
ten minutes of the play.
