I In Rugby League
1 Owing to the continued cold weather snd the consequent hardness of
IHaying fields there will be no Bug-
lab Rugby games this week-end. This
should permit the University teams to
regain some of their pro-Christmas
condition before critical games,
Although Vancouver holds the lead
Ip  MoKecknle  Cup  points  a queer
Situation prevails. The Vancouver
earn drew with Varsity, beat Victoria,
thus gaining a lead, ln the third game
of the series Victoria beat Varsity
18*8, during the Victoria Invasion,
Mere we have a team losing to an*
otper team which had been beaten by
g third team which had drawn with
the flrst. In the Tlsdall cup series,
Varsity has played two games losing
to Rowing Club "A" and beating Rowing Club "B" team.
The Varsity "A" team Is tied for the
head of the league with Meralomas
gnd Ex-Magee. This "A" fifteen has
hmn scored against in only one game
ilfce H started playing In the fall
term. At Victoria, with but five of
fits regulars, it held the champion Vic*
torla College team to a 0*0 draw,
though Victoria had a decided advantage in the last half. Its next game Is
frith a strengthened team of Meralomas who hope to wipe out the disgrace of a former defeat.
The Varsity Freshman team has
lived up to a reputation for surprising
forecasts. It has played very well, although it is not In the leader class.
• The Second Intermediates have been
handicapped somewhat from a slight
dearth of material but have nevertheless struggled on.
The only sport this week to Which
the teams can look forward seems to
be having pictures taken for the

Discuss Evolution
Of Government
In Canada
Displaying flashy form, John Clayton, President of the Varsity Chess
Club, scored a striking triumph in the
first Lightning Chess Tournament of
the year on Tuesday. Clayton ploughed his way through all opposition to
finish with seven clour wins and in>
losses  to  his  credit,
Following the victor It. A. Pllkington and A. Olund tied for second place
with five points each. W. McEuckern
took fourth place with one point loss.
Eight players took part.
The time limit of ten seconds pei
move brought about some startling
situations and mistakes, In the game
between Clayton and Olund, when a
win for the latter would have enabled him to tie for first, he missed
a mate on the move and ultimately
lost the game.
It is planned to hold another similar
tournament ln the near future, while
entries for the Handicap Tourney are
being received so that it is hoped to
begin this event early next week.

"Responsible Government" was discussed by Miss Margaret Ross and
Mi*. Hugh Morrison at a meeting of
the Historical Society held at the
home of Miss Belle McOauley, on Monday, January 13,
Miss Ross comprehensively outlined
the struggle in the Maritimes. She
pointed out that as early as 1776 a
need for reform was felt, although
,' effective work really began with the
entry of Joseph Howe into public life.
The speaker ranked the letters ot
Joseph Howe to Lord Jno. Russell
next ln Importance to Lord Durham's
Report advocating responsible government. It was pointed out that Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince
Edward Island achieved responsible
government by constitutional means,
and that burning questions lu the
struggle were those of laud tenure,
control of revenues, and a grant for a
government civil list.
In his treatment relating to 'The
Cauadiis,' Mr. Morrison explained his
thesis that the Cunad.-is would have
achieved responsible government ultimately, without the aid of the Mother
Country, so far as a constitution was
concerned, since foundations for it
were already laid iu 17BS; that the
Quebec Act was a mistake which the
Constitutional Act and the Act of Union attempted to rectify; that all three
I—the work of the Imperial Govern-
1 ment—tended to weaken rather than
to strengthen the growing child, of
the empire, which, though perhaps its
development would have been slower
without Imperial aid, would have built
up a firmer physique and a stronger
morale, based on the necessity of political self-reliance and » justifiable
conscious national pride of achievement.

Club Hears Paper
On Ingoldsby
"The Ingoldsby Legends" was the
subject of the paper read by Barbara
Felton to the Letters Club on Tuesday
evening. The meeting was held at the
home of Mrs. F, C. Walker.
The paper was divided Into three
parts; "Part I., which tells who wrote
the Legends, with something of his
life and times;" "Part II., which tells
who the Ingoldsbys were, and what
the Legends are about;" "Part III.,
which attempts something in the way
of criticism."
Rueh of these parts dealt lu u delightful and satisfying manner with
its subject. Richard Harris Barnaul,
born in 1788. was the author of the
Ingoldsby Legends. His interest in
history and legend was aroused by the
history of his own family's long nnd
respected line of ancestors. Ho went
to Oxford and was ordained in 181".
The Legends were written in the
■Irresponsible decade,' between I ;:!()
and ISM. The periodical, a falrh new
Institution, had made more common
a new type of literature, notably the
essay, but also the short story and
poems more or less narrative, such as
the Ingoldsby Legends.
The sociable, popular Burhain made
many friends, Including Scott and
other notables. Busy as he was, "hi.
Irrepressible love of rhyme bubbled
up at every opportunity."
"The Ingoldsby Legends" are a series of stories, some lu prose, but most
in verse, that have been tidrnitted to
the ranks of the classics by virtue of
their irresistable humor, aud thetr
extraordinarily varied and vivid
rhythm and rhyme." They received
their name because tb'jy are either
about the Ingoldsby family or told by
some member of the household.
The Legends were written in moments of idleness or late at night, a.;
a recreation rather than a labor.
Whether one likes them or not depends a good deal on the approach.
They ure Intended to amuse, should
he read a few at a time when one Is
lu the mood, nnd "the more completely you can ignore your critical (acuities for the time being, the belter."
Senior Hoop Men
Drop Slow Game
To Press Boys
Varsity's Senior "A" basketball aggregation was deposited In fourth
place In the "Vancouver and District
League" when tt dropped a ragged
Same to the hustling understudies of
uck Coles at V.A.C. gym. Tuesday
night, by a 34-17 count. The press
boys were playing high olass ball but
the students were lust a little worse.
Using Dune. McNaughton at centre,
the Collegians started with a strong
defensive game and it was not until
more than Ave minutes of the period
had elapsed that Don Horton scored
on a free shot to give the Province a
one-point lead. Tommy Berto came
Into the limelight when he dropped ln
a basket and converted two shots
awarded him. The Newspaper quintette obtained its first field score
when Cameron went through on a
nice effort but Henderson made It
6-3 for Varsity with a brilliant long
shot. The Newsies then hit their
stride and at half time were leading
11-8. Play was even ln the second
frame. Neither squad was showing
to good advantage, the students especially were weak In finishing, missing enough easy shots to cinch the
game. At the close of the period the
students began to rush matters and
with two minutes of play remaining
were but five points down, but a basket by Newcombe ended the scoring.
From the Varsity Basketball Club
there now come several reports that
are both hopeful and discouraging.
Doug. Mclntyre has decided to become a financial magnate aud has left
Varsity to embark on a business career. His going will leave a vacancy
in the squad that will be hard to DU.
Ou the other hand the announcement
Is made that negotiations are being
carried on to have Dr. A. E. H. Montgomery take over the coaching duties
of the Senior teams. Dr. Montgomery,
a graduate of Oregon and the Pacific
Dental College, has taken severat
coaching courses in tbe South, and
It is believed that his efforts will
bring niurvellous results as there Is
much good material from which the
first-string men can be selected. As
every member of the squad ls eager
to turn out It is quite possible that
Varsity will spring some big surprises
before the season Is ended.

As a fitting reminder that the holidays were over, official announcement
and lists of the mid-sessional examinations greeted the students of McGiil
when they resumed lectures Monday
morning. These exams are being held
next week, January 13 to 17, and
extracurricular activities about the
campus are at a minimum as students
apply themselves to their work in
preparation to face the ordeal.
The occurrence of examinations at
this time in the session Is among the
most notable and interesting differences between the systems practised
at U.B.C. and at McGiil. They largely
take the place of our pre-Chrlstmas
exams, but in other respects are quite
different. Most or them are finals.
There ure in the curriculum here, a
great number of half courses, courses
which at U.B.C. would give a credit
of one and a half units, and those
taken In the first term are written
off at this time It is left to the Departments concerned whether or no
there shall he tests In the full courses,
uud lu the majority of the cases there
are none. Thus some students have
no exams at all, and many have only
one or two. Hut to make up for this
happy absence of tests ln these sub
Jects nt this period, short papers and
essays are given at frequent lntervala
throughout the year. The Freshman
class too, does have short one-hour
papers just prior to the closing down
for the Christmas vacation, and on
the results of these It is determined
whether or no they shall be prlvll-
edged to return. But they are not

It comes ss a shock to most students when some napient
scribe pens a derogatory panegyric In the local press expressing
his fulsome views upon the "college boys."
Ths latest lucubration (representee) In this issue's Muck
Page) is typical of that well-informed section pt (he public which
iniflntalns the proverbial high Intellectual level of correspondence
columns. Written under a pseudonym denoting one of the rather
unmentionable portions of Glasgow li appeared in tbe section
devoted to missives that have been boiled down by the editor.
We trust that it has lost none of Its original beauty and vigor of
expression in the process.
We shall not attempt to analyze the allegations of this remarkable epistle. We leave that to the reader. He should be the
best Judge o( his "guttersnipe love of publicity" snd his " rather
low" personality.
We regret to note that In certain quarters the U.B.C. is
looked Hpqh with unffteftdly eyes. Irritable taxpayers fume at
tHs Wei Of their reluctant contributions being lavished upon
ungrateful young wastrels. Self-made men with the "when I was
a boy" complex begrudge the college student his four mrs pf
"loafing." The hoher-th|n-thou scandalmongers of the city unite
in condemn!*** "the university *ef» as the epitome of the lsmen-
table downward trend of the younger generation.
It is extremely doubtfpl if any of these fault-finders ever
have been on the campus or have ever been really acquainted
with a typical student.
In our opinion, the outlook of this vociferous element is a
vestigial remainder from the frontier days when Vancouver wae
part of the backwoods, and will ultimately disappear. In the
meantime the university will have to put up with recurrent outbursts of prehistoric prejudice until by the passage ot yeara the
local race of anti-varsity mudslingers goes to join Neanderthal
man and the Missing Link.
By an overwhelming majority the Senior Class last Tuesday
declared itself in favor of holding the usual draw for its class
party. An alternative system of voluntary pairing was turned
down. The decision speaks for the sportsmanship of the class of
Class draws, while often sundering affinities for a time,
are undeniably of eminent value in breaking up cliques and
forming new acquaintances. It has unfavorable features such as
the inevitability of those living in North Vancouver drawing partner. In New Westminster. But that is part of the game; and in
the five draws of a college career there is little chance of such a
calamity happening every time.
The rejected ByBtem might possibly have satisfied a few
romantic Harold Teens but undoubtedly would have proved a
hardship on many others. In voting down this plan, which incidentally has proved a failure ln other years, the senior olass
has shown good sense worthy of its venerable maturity.

Dear Sir,
On opening Tuesday's "Ubyssey,"
I was much interested by your editor■
SI on the subject of an International
e|atloi|s Club. Wjcellent! Looking
more closely, I observed that the Srst
meeting in this connection was called
for Thursday noon, and was open to
students of upper years only. Not so
In the first place Thursday noons
are filled for all first year German
students, and doubtless others ae Weil,
by lectures. Why this crgse tor meetings on Thursdays? Many were deprived In this way of all the Musical
Society's efforts last term. Wouldn't
some other day do as well?
Secondly, why should only members
of upper years be considered flt persons to participate in these mysteries?
Many Freshmen and Sophomores have
more leisure, and are as competent to
devote Intelligent attention to the
problem of International relations as
any Senior.
Why deprive thein in four brief
years of University life, of half the
time which might bo profitably employed In this maimer? Your much to-
be commended attacks on the lack of
proper spirit in the university muat
be considered in the light of this prohibition, which ensures that tor two
years of his course, one shall not have
the opportunity to develop an Interest
tn pursuits outside his curriculum.
Por, of course, this rule applies in
other clubs besides the one now proposed,
Hoping for some modlrtcation,
I remain,

low person In certain respects, and it
Is up to the governing body to try
and rectify thess errors, In thlt case
1 think that a ruling confining all
horseplay, demonstrations, etc., to the
precincts of the University Would
meet the case. This has had to be
done 1« most European cqllsges, es-
Socially In Industrial areas. The sty-
ent must remember that though the
University |a a stateowped institute,
the sams as Westminster penitentiary
and the .Joys' Home at Coqultlam, the
average rate-payer expects to see a
difference In the various Inmates.

Boat Club Arranges
Washington Race
At a general meeting of the University Boat Club last Wednesday, Captain Strain outlined on ambitious program for this term's activities. After
muoh discussion tt was decided to
have the annual race with Washington
op March 16 or March 23, and to hold
the Crew Day a week earlier.
The captain urged everyone to turn
out so that at least two VIU.'s could
Sractlce, and he pointed out that Big
lock letters would be awarded If a
Canadian record was broken, Dally
practice for the first VIII, wll) begin
as soon as tbe weather becomes warnier,
Plans were dlacussed for seitdlng u
IV. to row against Brentwood College
In February, so thnt there could he
a return raoe on Crew Day. Tbe cup-
tain also pointed out that the eliminations of the Novice IV.'s must be
held hy the beginning of February.
It was decided that Strain should
investigate the possibility ot distinctive dress for the llrst VIII., nnd see
whether tt would be advisable to buy
new sweaters with the University colors. Before the meeting adjourned, thu
matter of trustees for the trust fund
. was discussed,

The publication of college newspapers has come to ba a real business
throughout North America.
There are more than four hundred
college papers published at least once
a week, wtth an average of some
twenty-five students working on each
paper. There are thirty-two college
dallies in the country, about half' of
which use the service ot some international news gathering organisation.
About thirty-flve college papers are
published either twice or three times
■a week while more than three hundred colleges have weekly newspapers
the system that as ls adopted at Dal*
housie. Nearly a hundred more small
colleges have papers coming out less
often than once a week but more than
Academic credit for work on college
papers ls the exception rather than
the rule. Twenty-four out of twenty-
five dallies report financial compensation for the editor and business manager, while seven divide the profits
derived from the publication among
the membera of the entire staff.
Student publications are playing a
more Important part In University lite
every year and the above figures compiled from a recent survey show that
every educational institution of any
consequence throughout the continent
has its student news organ.

Ot outstanding importance among
the events ot December were the elections of Faculty Representatives to
the Council. This body Is constituted
quite differently to its counterpart
at U.B.C, and most interesting of the
differences are these mid-session elections. Steven ot the eleven members
are these Faculty Representatives,
nominated and elected by their respective Faculties and assuming office
on the first ot January. The President
is elected by all Faculties ln the
spring and takes office on the first of
July, his term thus conforming more
to the college session. A Beml-perman-
ent Secretary-treasurer Is appointed
at the time of tho President's election. The other two positions are occupied by the Editor-In Chief ot the
McOlll Dally, and the President ol tho
Union House committee, the former
being elected hy the editorial hoard,
and the latter by tho student body,
and both assuming office In July. This

Saskatoon—The question of the
rights of women to enjoy the companionship of Lady Nlootine seems to
have arisen on our fair campus, The
reaction to the discussion has varied
widely. Of interest to the students of
Saskatchewan ls the investigation eon-
ducted recently by the Toronto Varsity. The results are appended herewith.
"What an asinine idea," was the
general reaction to "The Varsity's"
questional^ as to whether man oould
possibly make woman stop smoking,
as Ihe Methodist Church seems lo
think ihey can, according lo the Utah
The ofl tiehHled issue nl women's
tree or otherwise smoking 1'lgliln Iihs
obviously not been relegated lo Ihe
dusty shelf fur buck numbers us yet.
Far from becoming resigned lo Ilie
generally accepted custom ol women
smoking both at home nnd abroad,
these inmates of the wide open spaces
have apparently lost the sense or equui
liy and commntisense which allegedly
accompanies the "great west" nnd
mountain Hung skyline. A treatise
on the western life and religion, heavily weighted wilh statistics, point* at
the fact that civilisation in Its latest
aspects has not reached the phase of
development or acceptance In these
districts as In the more heavily populated regions. The Methodist Church
in Utah Is evidently still In the lull
bloom of disapproval of such supposedly wicked pastimes as dancing, card
playing, and in particular, smoking.
It was pointed out that ita action ln
appealing to the men, to coerce the
freedom of women In regard to smoking was a retrogression in growth and
If such a policy were Instituted the
victories of auffragettlsm would be
gradually nullified. "The men would
not hesitate to shove the thin edge of
the wedge in further with great energy, and we would soon be reduced
to pre-war restrictions, If they found
they could overrule us ln such a small
thing," was the opinion expressed by
one co-ed.
there has been nothing of its kind tn
existence on the campus, and the need
for it ls being lelt and responded to.
It is to be published independently of
the Daily and wll) be something like
the Ubyssey's literary supplement on
a larger scale.
McGill's first act In the new year was
to confer at a special convocation on
January 2, the Degree of Doctor of
Laws upon General J. C. Smuts, eminent soldier and statesman of South
Africa. This Is the second occasion
during this session on which McGlll
has had the high honor of being able
to add to Its roll of graduates the
name of a statesman ot fame nnd
prominence. The first was in the
early fall when during his visit here
the Degree waa conferred upon Premier MacDonald. Although 'his last
was not marked by such an outburst
of enthusiasm on the part of the students as in the earlier Instance, It ia
felt by all that lt was one nf those
acts the performance of which 1ms
in the past brought position nnd dignity to McOlll among the Uuivershles
of the  lOmplre.

Normal Team Defeats
Varsity women's grass hockey eleven accepted a 2-1 defeat from the
Normal team at Connaught, Wednesday. Normal and Varsity were previously tied for the cellar position in
the league and now Varsity has the
proud honor of holding it unchallenged Indefinitely. The Varsity team lacking in practice was unable to hit the
ball In any direction and was completely Incapable of passing. The
