Under the guiding hand of Ossy
Durkin a new organisation has
come into being on the campus.
For the flrst time at U.B.C. there

"The Pep Club yells go a long way
towarda giving the boys the necessary "umph" at the gamea over in
the stadium, but how much more
couldn't a band do," said a pepater
the other day.
So far as the Olee Club is concerned there have been many demands for it. At present, Mr. Durkin plana on doing harmonising
with a possibility of choir work it
the necessary material presents itself.
There are still vacancies in the
orchestra and everyone turning out
will be given a chance. There ls
also room for students wbo understand orchestrating. Practices are
held every Wednesday at 12 noon
in  the Auditorium.
Dont Gawk At
The Camera
A film is being shot in your
mtdst. If you Bee a number of
people gathered about a camera,
which la in action and ahootlng
like triad, keep this well ln mind;
the whole thing ls a project of
the Film Society to publicise the
campus and illustrate its activity, and for Cripes aake —
People who stare at the camera never look aa intelligent and
interesting as they do in repose;
also they detract from the continuity of the scene. Consequently, the student body is reminded
not to start, or stare, or even
blush, if they notice a camera
lens trained upon them, but to
carry it off with aplomb and to
remain magnificently self-possessed.

president of the U.B.C. Musical
Society, who is active these days
in getting preparations under
way for the society's spring production, 'Yeomen of the Guard.'
The calm serenity of a typically
peaceful Thuraday noon waa rudely
shattered yesterday when a Science pep meeting received the full
force of an unusual phenomenon—
a hailstorm.
The pertlolss were large In
slse, and on eloae obaeratlon appeared to conalat mainly of assorted farm produoe.
Applying scientific methods to an
analysis of the disturbance, the
Redshirts soon collared the group
of Artsmen believed responsible,
and ln no time at all fisticuffs were
being handed out right and left.
The scene of battle was carried
to the Arts common room by a
crimson tidal wave, which swept
the defenders in retreat to the
sanctity of refuge. Undaunted,
however, the insulted men of Science ravaged the sanctum of their
enemies, and although they were
prevented from rasing the building, managed to take prisoner a
certain Rex Merrltt, who was kidnapped and depanted with despatch.
Having bsen deprived of hie
proud garment, the unfortunate
viotlm of revenge waa aot looae
to roam the oampue In humility.
He waa later observed leaping
gracefully over a privet hedge,
but appeared later In the Caf
with pride and pants restored—
blushing  modestly.
Apparently the Sclencemen felt
their lares et penates had been
avenged, for the battle gradually
expired amidst a few sporadic
shouts, diminishing in enthusiasm,
from both  parties.
EDMONTON, Alta., N.ov. 6. (WI
PU)—Rumorn are afloat on the Uni-
ersity of Alberta campus that an
"Antl - Muggers Club" is being
formed in Pembina, the women's
residence. "Mugging" has not been
denned, but according to information available to the Gateway, the
club has more than 50 members
and a tentative list of rules has been
drawn up,    These are:
1. No deviation from the main
entranee to Pembina when returning home at night accompanied   by a   man.
2. No holding of hands or pressing of knees In the theatres.
3. No wandering in the wooda
around the campua in the oompany of a member of the male
4.  No    strolling    down    to    ths
grid after dark.
• Men on the campus received the
news with various comments.
"It's an excellent Idea. Now we
shall know whom to avoid," was
the  comment of one.
"I know exactly the type of girl
to whom the club will appeal. A
more honest name for lt would be
the 'Sour Grapes Club'."
But the other side was also expressed. "I'm all in favor of it because I hate mugging, but since
must co-eds are too stupid to keep
up a conversation, lt seems to be
the only thing to do to pass the
time away. Now perhaps members
of the new club will read a few
books or even glance at a newspaper occasionally."
Popularity, the aim of every
"sweet young thing," and every "big
bold hero" on the campus, ia the
theme song of the executive in
charge of the plans for the approaching   Arts-Aggie   ball.
They desire, not an enthusiastic
reception   for   themselves,   but   an
overwhelming seal, on the part of
the students, to attend the ball.
Every glittering brainwave that
thla tireless body could muster has
been mobilised for purposes of this
annual celebration. Each idea re-
olves about the central keynote of
the Ball—democratic fun, frolic and

The problem of overcrowding haa
reached the precincts of the Unlveralty Extension department.
At a recent meting of the B. C.
Teachers' Federation University
Branch, called to discuss the adult
education project, Dr. O. M. Shrum
announced that, due to the large
registration, it would be impossible
to send more than one lecturer to
each community Interested ln the
study groups. Had it not been for
this condition, special classes
might have been arranged for teachers  missing  lectures.
Small  groups,  not  exceeding   30
members, are to be formed in the
city  and  throughout the  province,
to discuss a wide range of topics.
A   tentative   survey   of  these   subjects  Include:   Economics,  politics,
popular science, and current events.
Lecturers   are   to   be   aent   to
meetings   within   the   elty,   but
heavy   travailing   expenaes   and
crowding at U. B. C. restrict the
rsdlus  of  personal  oontaot.     Dr.
Shrum euggsstsd, aa mn alternative, that pamphlets and notss bs

LONCHANEYIN"Mile of Nickels"
FILM SOCIETY To Be Completed In
''Hunchback of
Notre Dame"
One of the greatest pictures
made by an actor whose name la
established ln cinema history
comes to the campus for a Saturday showing tomorrow noon.
Lon Chaney, whose fantastic
genius ln make-up was partly responsible for his early death, is the
star.and the famous "Hunchbacik of
Notre   Dame"  the  feature   picture.
Chaney, whose make-up aeoreta
went with him in death, Buffered
and achieved more in this characterisation of the hunchback Quasimodo than in any other.
The picture, made a decade ago
by Universal, includes others of the
cinema great who have not been
aeen ln aeveral yeara.
The story, Victor Hugo's highly-
colored narrative of fifteenth century Paria, is steeped in romanticism and soaked in gore.
Turbulent, vivid, lurid ln its episodes of torture and passion, it provides rich material for the grandiose film treatment that characterised Hollywood in the twenties.
The famoua eourt of Mlraelea,
tha    storming    of ' Notre    Dame
cathedral  by night, earnlval  and
warfare  in  the  atreeta of  Paris,
sre   eome   of   the   ssqusnoss   of
great pletorlal  Interest.
Characters ln the story are on a
par   with   the   quality   of   the   settings:  they Include the stern priest
whose   love   for   the   gypsy   dancer
drives him to madness;  the hunchback; the gypsy Esmeralda; the captain  of  Infantry,  who  trifles  with
her love and is murdered; the poet-
philosopher  Grlngolre,  one  ot   Hugo's  best  comic   creations;   and  a
crowd of minor characters.
The picture begins at 12.16 Saturday. Membership tickets ln the
Film Society are on sale today ln
the Quad box offlce.

More than 2S0 members of the Senior Class have paid
for student pass books.
Yet only 87 attended the Senior Class Party by means of
the pass.
Something is drastically wrong either with class parties
or with the pass systsm.
The rest of the Senior Class, who incidentally helped
pay for the party, must have had good reasons for not attending.
One of these reasons is that ths formal cabaret type of
party is too expensive. Even with the aid of a pass, the cost
of corsages, stiff shirts, transportation and other necessities
is too great to justify the enjoyment obtained by the average
Another reason is that the male members of the class
bring girls who are not members, and therefore the co-eds
of the class, because they cannot go "stag" must spend their
evenings consoling themselves in the neighborhood theatre.
The campus social set have a right to hold cabarets, but
class parties, especially now that they are financed by the
pass system, should be more democratic and have a wider
Correction must come, either by eliminating these affairs
from the pass system, or by reorganizing the class parties to
make them live up to the proper sense of their name.
The Ubyssey's present series of articles on so-called
"minor clubs" within the L.S.E. is drawing a considerable
amount of interest. For the flrst time, the campus as a whole
is realizing that student activity at U. B. C. is both varied and
We have here, among 2200 students, more than a score
of organizations whose work is important, although little
publicity is given to it. One of the biggest handicaps under
which small clubs are forced to operate is the necessity of
staging all meetings at the homes of members.
Such important student activity should not be driven
from the campus. It is in the interest of all that every campus group have the right and the facilities for carrying on its
work in the logical surroundings, those of the university
The proposed wing of the Brock Memorial Union Building contains ample room for club headquarters of at least a

Of course there are several fairly strong arguments
against the construction of this wing at the present time.

be done with it. Should our student councillors sit back in
their self-imagined glory and be content to let the matter
In its next issue the Ubyssey intends to print as
complete as possible a survey of the pros and cons of the
matter, and to lay the facts impartially before the students. Comments of all kinds are invited, and, if at all
pertinent, will be given space.

had the beat farm house in the district, and the two of them stuck to
It with peaaant doggedneas when
the rest of tbe countryside fled. The

Mlke'a earliest memories are of

up ln 1918, and Mike escaped to

Northern Saskatchewan to join a

Watching his new dollar hat bobbing purposefully through the drab

Granting you, air, that the films

It is my Arm belief that without

Brynelsen Wants
Room and Date
Reservations Early
John Brynelsen, Junior Member
ber of the Students' Council, wishes
to Impress upon all campua cluba
the Importance of giving notice at
least three daya in advance when
requiring a room for meeting purposes.
There are approximately 60 organisations on the oampus. In view
ot the tact that applications must
go through two offices, Brynelsen
declares: "The fact that some clubs
do not make application until aa
lateaa the day of the meeting causes considerable trouble and confusion.
"To avoid thla ws are oompelled
to  make  It a  standing  rule that
all   applications  for   rooms   must
be  msde  three  daya  before  the
date of the meeting.
"Any failure to comply with thla
ruling,   unless   a   good   reason   is
forthcoming, will result ln the application   being  disregarded.'
Application forms may be obtained ln the offlce of the Students' Council and should be handed
to Brynelsen personally.

It also has A. M. Stephen, the

He is president of the British Columbia section. Recently. Stephen
was read out of the C.C.F. for not

Not Being Supported
EDMONTON, Alta., Nov. B (W.I.
P.U.)—Only forty-seven per cent,
of the students of the University of
Alberta are supporting the Campus
"A" cards. Of the many privileges
offered by the card the majority are
yet to come. Such features aa the
rink, the plays, hockey, swimming,
boxing, etc., are but a part.
Although the support of the cards
seems to show that it is being received in an unfavorable light, over
the 86% of last year the new figure
shows a considerable gain. Oames

The triumphant collection of
sportsmen from the pub, who
hardly seemed to have exerted
themselves at all, stepped off the
floor with a spring in their walk
and a smile on their lips, amid the
plaudits of the thouaands who
packed the gym.
The game, which seemed to be a
mixture of rugby, soccer, volley
ball, and a bit of good old-fashioned
logging camp rough and tumbles—
almost anything but basketball—
was complicated by the fact that
they were at least fourteen men on
the floor at any given moment in
the game. Council's team consisted
of the male councillors and Pringle.
The pub was a stellar aggregation of sportsmen from America
and Europe, augmented by "Tar-
_an" McGougan, freah from the
jungles of Africa.
In spite of the apparent fouls
committed by the Council team
about four times a minute, the pubsters played on. Pringle, for the
sum of twenty-five cents and a fifteen-cent fruit sundae in the Caf,
ignored Council's tactics, and even
called half the Pub's well-earned
scores no basket. This probably
makes Joe a professional, and the

Indian Women
(Bv N.r.e.u.a. sbrviob)
Varying tn preaent importance,
but growing with extraordinary
rapidity la the poaltlon of women
ln the universities ot India, England, France, Holland, Austria and
Denmark, according to the February issue of the International Student Servloe Bulletin.
Salient facta developed In the aix
artiolsa point to the Increasing significance of women in the academic
and educational Uvea of theae countries.
The importance of women in Indian univeraitles in diminishing
caste-consolousness and in aiding
women to take thetr part during the
great period of national transition
is brought out clearly.
In England, the poaltlon of women In the universities ia far more
secure in the newer Institutions
than in the anolent schools of Oxford and Cambridge, where ihe restrictions, both sooial and academic, are great.
Reluctance haa been ahown to
giving graduatea teaching positions
of Importance. The proportion of
women to men tn Bnglish universities ranges from one-twelfth at
Cambridge to four-ninths at London University. Oxford has some
720 women,  4,160 men.
In France, on the other hand, approximately one-third of the students receiving university degrees
from one faculty or another were
women. "The woman graduate can
become a lawyer (but not a Judge),
a pastor (but only In the Lutheran
church), or an attache In the diplomatic aervice (but not in a post
abroad). Aa engineer or doctor she
holds a position of absolute equality with her masculine colleagues."

a pretty safe bet they'll be out

Pallas, Straight, and Bud Matheson
will probably start again in forward slots, with Pringle, and Rann

Wright and Turner will see plenty
of action, while Flynn, Lucas and
Millar will be ready to be shot into
the fray at a moment's notice.

With visions of their second win

Varsity Defeats Schools
In Annual Track Contest
Crowd of Sixty Sees Howie McPhee Win
Hundred in 10:3; McComber Takes 220
Amid a chilling wind and huge
banka of fog Varsity again smashed
through the combined effbrte of the
Vancouver High Schoola in the annual Varsity-High track meet, Wednesday afternoon. Led by two of U.
B.C.'a old reliables, Jim McCammon
and Howie McPhee and a comparative .newcomer,  Vance  McComber,
the local lads romped home to a 56-
40 victory over the schoolboys.
A roaring crowd of sixty people cheered McPhee to a win in
the feature race of the meet—
the 100-yard dash, in 10.8 aeconda.
Considering   both   weather   and
track   conditions,   the   time   was
very   good.   In   the   broad   jump
Howie sailed for over 19 feet to
take the event by a foot. McCammon heaved  himself  to two triumphs in the discus and ahotput.
Vance McComber, the slimmest
power-pint   seen   on    the    campus,
romped away with the 220-dash, an
event  supposedly  out  of his  cate
gory.  Vance is definitely headed for
the top  in  track,  having won the
half-mile also on Wednesday,  and
blasted the hopes  of inter-collegiate milera and half-milers back in
Saskatoon just a few weeka ago.
Ward DeBeck, the promlaing junior, came through to take the two-

of 10-18. Jack Ross played a

aquad, scoring IS of the markera
and turning in a fine defensive
battle to boot. This boy looks
like real Senior "A" company,
as the competition in that league
ia more of hts type.
Our little neighbor boy wants to
know why Noah took all those animals on the ark when a stork
would have done Just as well.
And then there was the lady that
had the quadruplets and called
them Elnny, Melny, Minnie and
Thomas.    She didn't 'want any Mo.
mile race in a thrilling sprint finish
with Wilf Pendray. He also defeated Pendray in the mile. Ward unit doubtedly due for' a fine record
this year.
For the high schools Allen and
Rutledge, of Tech., were outstanding. The latter really gave an exhibition of pole-vaulting as U.B.C.'s
entrants were nil.
