i, the Haldas of the Queen Char-
.Islands, who resemble white men
more strongly than they do
„ Indians, were cited as an in-
ce of the marked adulteration of
original native stock.
r, Barbeau showed that most of
.__ eo-ealied "Indian" art was really
brought here by early Spanish and
Wmmeibiorers,   until about
r two hundred years ago the naUves of
A'thii province regarded the ooming of
,  the''palefaoes''as Bupernatural vlslta-
tio»i and made every effort both to
;   please and imitate tbe new-comers.  It
is easily seen. Or. Barbeau continued,
that the natives readily adopted the
art of these European invaders—an
art whioh they have developed until
it has come to be considered purely
their own, and which they would have
neglected   long   since   had   not   the
white man'o liking for "native curios"
proved very profitable.   The lecturer
also added that he doubted very much
the reputed age of most totem poles,
because of the humidity of the climate
and the tact that almost no preservative was used on them.
Even their folklore has been so
greatly influenced by other peoples,
especially the Scandinavians, French,
Spanish and, strangely, the African
Negroes, that as much as eighty per
oent. of what is commonly believed to
be purely Indian in origin haa been
borrowed and assimilated from the
folklore of other peoples.
Dr. Barbeau haa a vivid and humor-
em- style and those students who are
able to attend hjs lectures will find
them both pleasing and Illuminating.
Lester Court, the scene of the Frosh
reeeption, presented a kaleidoscope
appearance on Friday evening. The

oony where many Freshmen seemed
to fix themselves permanently as ornaments (or gargoyles), and the resulting conception was chaos on chaos
thrice confounded.
It was as though one had thrown
chronology aside and lived once again

insane desire to find a patrician to
What a laboratory for a psychologist! Freshmen, cheeked by their Inferiority complex, hesitated to ask
that lovely and demure blonde in the
corner. Morons In their blissful medi-
oority said the most brilliantly witty
tilings to awed women honor students.
On the other hand intelligent seniors
wbo should have known better, lisped
baby talk In the ears of simpering
freshettes—and, occasionally, one saw
a proud theologian dancing with

an abbreviated  costume.
Science Trims
Slipping aad sliding, through a sea
ot sloppy mad, whioh completely
quenched the ardor ot the hook aad
ladder brigade, Science gave firemen
a lesson In Rugby on Saturday afternoon to the tune ot M, A drissllng
rain and a six-inch layer of mad made
combined plays almost Impossible, but
the gladiators struggled valiantly to
overcome the elements.
Varsity pressed from the Mob-off,
and held the hose brigade In their own
half. Finally the Scientists combined
in a pretty play which resulted ia
Howard Baton tumbling over the line
with the ball on a sparkling peas
from Bill Locke. Firemen pressed
momentarily from the kick-off, hot
were returned to their own half with
great promptitude. '.Play ranged fairly
evenly from end to end for some
minutes, but the superior power ot
the Students soon became apparent,
They pressed the Firemen back to
their own line, and after threatening
several times, Oustafson finally went
over with a pass from Bert Tupper.
The half ended with Varsity pressing
The second half opened with a eon
certed rush on the part of Science.
The Smoke-eaters resisted valiantly,
and held the blue and gold gladiators
in check tor some minutes. Varsity,
however, was not to be denied, ana
when the Firemen's fullback fumbled
the ball, Phil Barrett was on It like
a shot and passed tbe tine. Shortly
afterwards Lange, one of the ladder*
men, pulled a vicious tackle of Bill
Locke. When the shower of mod
Subsided, Lange waa discovered lying
on the ground, half-buried in the oose,
where he remained tor severe) minutes, apparently ingreatasm    ■ „
/The Firemen made their only soore
near the end ot the second half, when
* ey combined on their own 25 yard
e for a series of dribbles up the
.which ended in Gordon McLean
going over with the ball. Varsity
came back strongly, and pressed the
Firemen behind their Own two-bit
line. The whistle saved another possible Vanity score.
Owing to the greeeiness of the
ball, ahd general sloppiness ot the
field, none ot the tries were eon-
verted. All the shots were from a
very difficult angle, and Sinclair (8)
and Kelly were not to be blamed for
their failures.
Both teams showed need of practice,
several fumbles being pulled which
could not be attributed to the weather.
Play was. loose throughout, but with
practice (lots ot lt) the Scientists
should cop the Miller Cup.
After the game Coach Tyrwhltt released the following statement: "I am
greatly pleased with tho fine showings of both Intermediate and FroBh
teams and in particluar with tbe typical fighting finish which won both
games. The 3enior teams are not
quite so satisfactory as yet. Last
year's McKechnie men have not
nearly reached the perfection ot
teamwork and physical conditions
which characterised the play ot what
Bporting editors laat year called the
Miracle Team. The deadly dogged
accuracy luj tackling which so baffled
the Maoris is now missing and nothing but hard training will regain lt.
To-morrow afternoon's practice must
see every one of the hundred and
five enrolled Rugby men out, aa all
four teams must be fielded on Saturday, Arts, Science, Frosh, and Intermediate. Five wins out of six starts
is good, but not good enough."
Science line-up waa Maclnnes,
Locke, Baton, Oustafson, Kelly, Barrett, Tupper, Barrett, Sinclair, Noble,
Jones, Farrlngton, Forester, Sparks,
Failure of the Varsity forwards to
slam the ball at the opposing net
when qulok eetlon meant victory, re
suited In a 8-1 defeat of the first soccer team last Saturday afternoon at
Athletic Park, North Vancouver. Ex-
High won on ita merits and yet It wes
solely because the victors excelled in
this one department. Their forwards
seised on every opportunity that presented itself, and lost no time In
testing Anderson's ability as a good
goal guardian. The result was that
three times the ball hurtled into the
Varsity net, whereas only onee old
our forwards, with their uafer but less
impressive passing and waiting, manage to score.
Tbe game was played in a heavy
downpour; when It wasn't a hydro-
phere it waa an ocean. Al Todd discovered this in the flrst half when the
ball bowled him over. He, however,
with great presence of mind, lay on his
back and floated. .   .
The gamo started With a rush by
the Varsity forwards, and play seesawed from end to end. After ten
minutes of even play, Crute, one of
Varsity's former stars, opened the
scoring for the ex-High. Wright slipped and missed the ball, whereupon
Crute tore in and drove home a hard
ahot which left Anderson no chance
to save. Three minutes later Qaudin
made the score equal with a well-
placed shot trom a scrimmage ln front
of the North Van goal. Both teams
tried hard for a lead and in spite of
the wet field play was test and furious.
Our forwards were combining well
but were weak In shooting. Wright
made some splendid gains for Varsity
when several times he sent the ball
half the length of the Held. Ia the
goal Anderson made some wonderful
Saves, in tKls HiTf Varsity did most
of the attaching, but the North 8hore
team made the most ot their opportunities; so when tbe whistle blew
tbe soore was one all.
In the second half tbe ex-Highs
started with a rush and before the
flrst minute was up, had gained a
one-goal lead. Soon after, in another
rush they tested Andy with a hot one
but he proved equal to the occasion.
A little later Waddington made a nioe
cross in front of the opposing goal,
but there was no one there to take lt.
Then the ex-Highs scored their third
oounter from a scrimmage in front of
the Varsity goal, and this finished the
scoring for the day. Our men, however, all tried hard, and with a dry
field might have won. Wally Mayers
sent in a slziler which the goalie only
managed to save by diving full stretch
through the mud. When the final
whistle blew, Varsity waa on the
short end of a 3-1 count.

The two rouges that gave Varsity victory hardly constitute an eaaejaate
representation of the Winners' superiority. They hem an edge ever 111
year's champions during most ot the game.
.Though slightly outweighed by the Viotorla line,, the Vanity forwards
held time and again against the fleree thrusts of the local line plunging aces,
Often they tossed the local men tor losses.
_ On the attack Varaity again outplayed the Victoria Una. They ripped blf
holes in it for Currle. the clever little Varsity quarter, to prance through, o?
for Odium or Jaeksoa to reel off big gains.

But in the backfleld it waa a different story. The Victorians were
taster and cleverer than the visitors,
They ran baok punts with more
sueoess and were quicker to exploit
fumbles, to take advantage of the
occasional breaks of the game.
In tho kicking department, Dick
Wilson's powerful boot gave the local
gridders a big advantage.
Versity scored flrst about halt way
through the flrst quarter. Failing to
gain on two line bucks in centre field,
the visitors kicked deep Into Viotorla
territory, Harrison ran the ball hack
ten yards before being downed on
Victoria's twenty-five yerd line. Potman lost the ball to Varsity on a
fumble ln the next play. Jackson
gained two yards through centre and
Victoria was penalised for offside In
the next play. Varsity made yardage.
Again Viotorla was penalised and the
ball lay two yarda from the goaMine.
Fearing another thrust at their line,
Victoria drew In ita defence. Instead
ot ordering a line plunge, Currle called
for an end run and, taking the bell
himself, found only one Victoria man
to pass on a wide circling dash to the
left that ended when he grounded the
ball behind the goaMine tor Varsity's
flrst five points.
Helmer failed to convert tbe try.
Toward the end of the next quarter Stan Stanyer, one of the two outstanding stars of tbe game, gathered
In a loose ball and sprinted eighty
yards to even the score tor Victoria.
Stanyer's brilliant run came with
startling suddenness, relieving an
ominous Varsity march on the Victoria
Varsity secured the ball on a fumble
on the Victoria forty-eight-yard line.
Currle made a beautiful sortie or
thirty-six yards on a half buck through
the middle of the line. Currlo then
called for a dash around the right end.
Carrying the ball, Helmer decided to
try a drop kick at goal. The ball
sputtered weakly rrom the side or his
foot. Stanyer gathered it in, passed
several men, and streaked down the
field with the whole Varsity team
pounding along at his heels. Campbell
Forbes failed to convert and the
whistle blew for half-time three
minutes later.
Viotorla Tighten Up
Victoria's defence tightened up in
the second halt and the visitors were
unable to cross the goal-line tor a
second try, their two extra points
coming trom routes, one in each
Currle ran baok, one ot Diek Wilson's punts to Vaetorla'a thlrty-Ave-
yard line, covering twenty yarda before being downed in a hard tackle.
Varsity was penalised one down and
then Currle smashed through the
centre of the line tor five yards, Helmer then tried a drop. The ball sailed
wide, but high, and the Vanoouver
men got down under it so fast that
Stanyer had no chanoe to ran It out
over the goal-line again. He was
downed in his tracks for the flrst
rouge ot tbe game, making the soore
six to five in favor of Varaity.
A rouge ended Varslty'B next
dangerous march down tbe field. With
the ball on Victoria's twenty-yard line,
Currle made six yarda through the
middle ot tbe lino. Odium added
another yard. On tbe next play he
smashed through tor the required
yardage. Currlo squirmed and twisted
his way to a four-yard gain through
centre. Helmer tried a drop at goal.
The ball again was wide of tbe posts,
before he could bring baok tbe ball
but the Varsity men nailed Harrison
to tbe field of play. This rouge was
final score of the game.
A Thrilling Oame
It was a thrilling game, of the tooth-
and-naii variety, replete with hard Una
plunging, hard Uokling, sudden, unexpected dashes down the field,
beautiful punting and, to tell the
whole story, rumbles, , There were,
perhaps, too many fumbles. But the ,:
season Is yet young,, and the hard
tackling was undoubtedly a big faetor
in the many muffs.

Aa editorial ln the laat isaue of a certain looal journal says
amort* a number of other remarkable things: "Personally I have
concluded, after attaining the wisdom of a ripe old age, etc., ete.
(thS ^teeterae1 being, presumably, a flop to a conscience which must
raeoghii* the implications of this amaring frankness) that it—College Spirit-ia one of the greatest banaiitiee, SELF-INFLICTED on
mm and innocent mind." The writer further laments the fact
Ihat "To be a college spirit you thuai forego your individuality and
become one of the mob"—this too being necessarily SBLF-IN-
TOOTllD, But to What end li thia 'baualalltw; s^-iiiilieted" on the
afore-mentianed minds?
Hither ths thittds in question find suffloient recompense for hid-
tog ihbif light* under bushels, in the deUghts of participation in
the banality ete., ete., or .they don't. The tlrst ease speaks for itself! thosef'college spirits" will not look back after "attaining, ete.,
Ste.." and deplore the "genial blah" in whioh they indulged. li
they don't, on the other hand, they either have courage to assert
their individuality find scorn the mob, or they don't The flrst case
again gpeske for Itself; in the latter ease these people conform to
the "genial blah" of the mob, "go to football games, ete.. etc.," are
"fit the beek of some idiotio,. etc., etc.," ad lib. In other words
Uiblr tthlqtte Individuality lacks the Virility to assert itiell; it needs
tne protection of the mob. tn regard to this type of "ardent college
epirir'—to whioh our critic confessedly belongs—we oan only hope
list the aeoHt consciousness of a superior intelligence ia suffloient
mt* for the peine endured ih "listening to dome silly ass, eto., ete.,
sty" For fear of being "oatraciacd by the mob," but more partiou-
tartar, we muetooneh.de, for fear of being "dubbed an intelligent
stand**" thii smothered Individuality has to be "interested in do-
tog, «tb., eto., ete."
Thla li a frank confession on the pert of oui* learned critic. It
lg to be hoped that we bave not many of these martyrs to the cause
"College Babbitry" in oar midst. We shudder to think of the col
leetive forde Of insincerity emitted at a rugby game.
"What is College Spirit?" asks this Writer in a mood of ex-
toantive confession. It is obvious that he needs enlightenment on
the subject. College spirit is the spirit of co-operation, it ie what
ie known ae Citigenahip in a larger sphere, and in a still larger
Patriotism. If the writer failed to enioy the ''genial blah" in Whioh
-4>y his own account—he wae compelled to participate by the force
of public opinion, he Wae anything but ah "ardent  college spirit."
As to the advantages of this "college spirit" to which (in the
words Of another and similar "stHver for intellectual supremacy")
we must "give our time for a bigger and better Babbitry" in order
"to engender, etc., etc., etc."—there ia, we confess, room for con
troveray. In ita extreme form college spirit is probably very object
ionable, On the other hand we ask oar critics to picture to themselves a University without any of the cohesive force of the disputed "spirit." Then would these "intelligent students," these
effete devotees of the higher learning, these insufferable prigs who
Speak somewhat in the vein of our learned contemporary, shine in
all the glory of their asserted and pampered individuality. Egotism
would reign, and the ordinary student life would degenerate into
an anarohiet picnic.
. There wae a time when this minature "spirit of salesmanship"
Wai rife. That (despite our critics) is the period which ie usually
Spoken of ae the finest in our history—the campaign days. There
are even some who maintain that during that period of "genial
blah" there wae room for intelligent students, (not in the sense
aeeepted by our critic) who did not devote ao much time to the
Vtpirit" that they did not have time for a little individual effort.
Though we cannot, ae a whole, hope to receive an education, and
though we may have to resign oureslves to progress only in the
direction of a "bigger and better Babbitry," we1 must agree that on
the whole "the eoiorful idiocy of the massed college boy geems more
normal"—and eertainly, we think, much more effective and enjoyable—"than the massed striving for intellectual supremacy of a
similarly large body."
This year the P.I.P.A. Conference ia being held at the Univereity
of British Columbia. The editors and business managers will be the
gueeta of the " Ubyasey.''
The Pacific Intercollegiate Press Aasooiation ie composed of the
college publications of universities along the Pacific Coast, and includes inch well-known papers aa the Washington State "Bver-
ftNtn*'' the Oregon "Emerald," the U. of C, "Daily Californian,"
the "Stanford Daily" and the U. of Nevada "Sagebrush" as welt
aa the "Ubyssey."
If thia conference does nothing else, it will put the University
of British Columbia "on the map." The visiting editors and bua-
inesa managers will form lasting impressions of our university, ita
organisation, its atudente and ita paper. U. B. C. will take ita place
as an equal with the oldeet and richest institutions on the coast.
We are justly proud of our University, its aite and its traditions.
We are hoping that we can make our hospitality worthy of the

Wm Ubyssey,
.Although our Counoil Is young and
iriexp&lenced, surely ft li time that
they found out how batter to organise
events. The initiation waa bungled
completely, partly because of crossed
•rdert, partly because insufficient
notification was given to the upper
years of the meeting for their instruo-
Notice of the first Alma Mater meet-
lag was posted several days In advance, bdt-it Wea tern down a day
later, rearing many in doubt es to
whether the meeting actually would
be held: this undoubtedly account for
the poor attendance.
May I alee, point out the poor
sportsmanship which is already permeating the University, Hew many
slackers la the Upper Classes oould
give a goer reason for not turning
out to Initiation T Hew many Frosh
bave been sports enough to wear placard aad ribbon in town and at heme
as well as at University? How many
were poor sports enough to make use
of programmes at the informal Frosh
Reception? How many tickets went
to people outside 'Varsity so that they
could add to the crush?
Yours moat sincerely,
Editor, Ubyssey;
tn response to the call for Initiation
suggestions: most ot us agree that
the tnoming ceremony fulfilled the
primary requisite of lnitiatlon—to impress and to instruot the "Frosh,"
At the same time, however, we think
that the afternoon's events Were (in-
so-far as the men were concerned) a
tragical farce, Had the events been
carried out as scheduled, no doubt
all would have been wel).
In respect to future initiations! Let
us retain the morning ceremony but
do away with the "roughhouse" of the
afternoon. Aa baaing soems to be
undeslred, let us have something harmless yet amusing, such as may be
drawn from the following or ether
That each Of the Frosh bave his
(or her) nose painted Indelible green
for a week'
That they carry their placards aa
they do now;
That the men dress In shorts and
the girls In ankle-length dresses:
That they carry their books, etc., lb
a basket or coal-scuttle for a week
(though this would be inconvenient
In the buses);
That the above regulations apply
In town as well as In the University.
Yours truly,

ButterneH Replies
Mr. James Butterfleld, the well-
known writer of the "Common Round"
replies to the "Point Orey Oasette"
In the following terms:
A pleasing writer in another local
journal, a young man who has very
recently been exposed to the higher
learning as revealed on University
H1U, unbosoms himself bitterly on the
matter of tbe "College Spirit"—also
as revealed in these aeademlo fastnesses. He has nothing but soon for
this revelation and obviously fails to
observe its usefulness. He says:
(Quotation follows.) ....
All of wblcb Is very true and very
right. It Is difficult to vtsualiise a
modern civilisation to wblcb tbe total
product ot our universities shall be
"intelligent students." There is no
room for them. What our progress
demands It It Is to continue on tbe
road to prosperity upon tbe lines Indicated by the moat successful nation in
tbe world is the apirit ot salesmanship. And to engender that spirit aa
ita beat you must have all the genial
blah of which our young Erasmus
Education Is the same In Its essentials all over the world. No amount
of publicly-supported universities will
ever succeed in educating anyone* it
la an individual efiort that Is needed.
And the seeker after knowledge and
learning is faced at tbe outset of bis
university career with the oholoe; he
may give his time to study tor bis
own sake—or to the college apirit tor
a bigger and bettor Babbitry.
And on the whole tbe colorful Idiocy
of the massed college boy seems more
normal than would be tie massed
striving for intellectual supremacy ot
a similarly large body.—(Dally Prov
ince, October I.)

Pull al Sound atM) Fary
A great step towards wortd-pee-m
has been taken recently, A group of
statesmen hai come forward to the
rescue of humanity. Let all U.B.O.
students threw out their ohests with
pride, tor these fer-aeeing benefactors
ere ln our midst—non other than our
own Students' Council.
By going on record as approving ef
a policy of arbitration for the Canadian Oovernment they have pointed
St to MacKenaie King th* path Ot
ty and have given him definite assurance of the support ot the Can*-
to ita glorious end, WeT41>e|ai party

rage at not being ebbiea to win «ueb

breathes a sigh of relief, tor at laat
It has been "made safe for Democracy"—by our own Students' Council.
Of oourse, In saying all this we are
presuming that Premier King and the
others have become aware of the existence of the Students' Counoil and
hare taken the trouble to read ot its
Initiation Again
As suggestions for Initiation aro In
order, we present here a scheme that
has not been tried before, at least
on this continent
initiation advocates clamor tor the
suppression ot the Frosh while anti-
InltlattonlstB wleh to substitute the
"big-brother" movement It is therefore only natural that a Combination
of these two principles would please
everybody, except perhaps, tbe freshmen.
This being the case, we propose the
introduction of a system of "fags"
similar to that of Englidh public
Schools. Under this system each indent ot the Upper Years could be allotted a Freshman whom be would Instruct in, varsity lore. In return, the
Freshman would do small services
such aa carrying bis patron's books,
copying out themes and lining up in
tbe Cafeteria to get bis nation's
Of course some may object that this
could be carried too far; that it would
end by the fags attending lectures for
their masters and doing a double
share ot rooting at rugby games. But
there Is little fear of such a state of
affairs developing.
In our opinion, the only drawback to
the fag system is that there may not
be enough Frosh to go around and
this might lead to Jealously among the
senior years.

"First and foremost she must try to

inquiring air."
"While la lectures she must fix her

"She should be en all round sport

"She must not kill herself over

kicks, and three-quarter runs, the
scrum were getting the ball ont nicely, but owing to the wet, tumbles were
frequent Tbe froah were continually
pushing the "B's" down hill and finally
Hume went over tor the final try.
The whole team played well Tho
forwards were dribbling and packing
in good style and, though a bit loose
at times, were the main strength.
Fumbles were frequent oo the three'
quarter line, but this Waa mostly owing to the wet aad slippery . ,1. The
teams lined up as follows; Heaps,

put the ball ln mid-field. A brilliant
combination head-on drive and castor-
oil glide into acre ot water was made
by Frell In a successful effort to fall
on the ball. This probably saved Varsity a try, The half ended with both
teams fighting Ih mid-field and the
score S-0*
In tile next half Varsity took on
new lite and wea dangerous at ail
times. Tbe serum was pressing hard
and getting the ball baok all tbe time,
Wilson and Mason were working well.
The entire serum was dribbling and
following up well, Tackling was bard
and the threes Were getting their men

went over for the first try. Shields
missed the eonvert from a side angle,

Play was again resumed and Varaity was working nicely. Bull at half
was getting the ball to tbe threes regularly, but the mud made running and
handling awkward. Ohappel, playing
an excellent game tried a drop about

Wolfe waa going well on the wing.
Varsity again seemed over when
breaking out of the mob Wilson
Wolfe and others went down tn a
heap over the line; tbe ball broke
loose, but it seemed both had touched
It down. Soon after Kolle went over
for the second try and placed the leather between the posts. Cokey missed
at a dead-on angle. The score was
now 6-6 In favor of Varsity. Play
continued with Varsity pressing steadily. Time went with both teams in
