their love of display and their en-

Or. Barbeau pointed out that the
dances which most white people con-
eider an Integral part of tho Potlatch
were really only for recreation and
purely apart from the business ot the
gathering.
Tbe Potlatch has been abolished by
law, but a few of tbe interior Indians
; still hold them secretly. Perhaps a
factor toward Its downfall, greater
than tbe opposition of the white man,
Wae the willing abandonment by those

to recognise It, and accepted the customs of tho white man they could ao
longer be held responsible for their
debts.
The lecturer pointed out that
missionaries on thla coast bad been
greatly hampered by the fact that the
lowest Indians were very ready to
adopt their teachings and customs so
ii to absolve themselves from their
obligations, aad consequently the
letter class scorned Christianity and
White men tn general.

ON SATURDAY
Rugby fans are waiting with
what feverish impatience tor the _
between Varsity and Vancouver tomorrow.
Just one week ago Varsity took away
the game trom the, formerly undefeated champions of the stwvU.ee, the
holders of laat ytar/i title, significant
of triumph in the BUT Four Canadian
Rugby Series of British Columbia.
Nor did the local papers or the
Ubyssey give an adequate account of
tbj Students' victory. Over the Capitol

was superior to Victoria'a,
Vancouver waa vanquished by
two weeks ago, the former
team has bucked up a great deal, A
week ago they completely walked
through the New Westminster team.
Which is the heaviest in th* league,
and with the signing on of Oouriay,
the coming fight promises to be a big
one,
Varaity haa a powerful machine.
There is no douty about it. The line
la a veritable pillar of strength. Cam-
ossl and Hall as insldes are undoubted'
ly the strongest linemen In the province. Watson aud Smith Are Bpl*odld
at snap, and the outsiders, ToM, Mitchell and Anderson, are allt excellent

work will be expected ot Wentworth
and Helmer.
Laat year Canadian Rugby was
classed as a sub-minor sport at U. B. C.
This year lt is a full minor sport it's
importance as an athletic activity
here Is growing and certainly, if Varsity ever hopes to compete with eastern colleges in athletics, Canadian
Rugby will be the popular intercollegiate game.
If Vancouver wins to-morrow, It will
be ahead of Viotorla and Varsity in
points. The University team has a
hard battle ahead of it if It hopes to
place Itself in the lead. If Varsity
wins there will be a good chance to
win the league and if it wins the
league there 1b a beautiful cup to go
with the championship besides a trip
to the prairies to play Winnipeg or
Saskatoon.
The Lipton cup, whlcu la to be
presented for the first time this year
to the victorious team, Is the finest
piece of silverware at stake to-day in
the athletic circles of the province.
This trophy will be on display at
noon to-day in the hall of the Auditorium, where tickets to the game
will also be on sale.

THE P.IJ»A CONFERENCE
At the annual Pacific Intercollegiate Preia Conference held last
year st Reno, Nevada, It wai decided to accipt the invitation of the
Ubyieey'i representative, Mr. Edmund Morriion, to hold the third
Congr«ai here.  Consequently, for the first two days of next week
thS-Ubyssey will act ai host to lome twenty-odd student! from
ross the line, the editors and managers of the various college
ipers affiliated with this organization.
The (till ilgnlflcance of tne holding ot thii convention at our
Unlvanlty is perhaps not fully appreciated by the majority of
udents. The importance mgy be seen when It ll known that our
niversity was chosen aa the meeting glace for the third conclave
>tn among such institutions as the University of Washington,
Morula, Stanford/ Southern California, Oregon Agricultural Col-
Slid other centres of learning of equal renown.   The visit of
i itudenti from the other colleges will give the itudenti of our
yetiity an opportunity to show their real abilities in the line of
Ttainmont. The report! that our visitors will carry back about
condition* on the U.B.C. campus and about the reception they
received will go far in establishing the prestige of our student body
©pother tmmotites.
Student! On the whole have only a hary Idea of the practical
efits derived from membership in thii Association.   First and
emost among the advantages is the fact that at least twice a
k regular communications are received from other colleges,
~    brief reports of outstanding event!  on  their  respective
•es; different methods of initiating the Frosh; activities of
ecpective dramatic clubs, athletic activities, and  also  any
ture news that warrants publicity.  This PXP. news is for the
.elusive uie of members of the Association, and so valuable news,
W could not otherwise be obtained, is placed twice a week at the
rf^*™*1*1 °* th* Ubyiaey.   Besides thla feature, there is also the
#$ idtintag* of added advertiiement: through the laftoence of the
a, .Alioclation apecial contracts are let to atudent publications by
?H.   international advertising firms.   This advertising, at apecial stand-
ardized rates, can be gained through the P.I.P. Asioclation at great
advantage to member publications, and provides an outstanding
«*»«pl« Of the practical benefit derived from membership therein.
Thii occasion, then, of the P.I.P. conferences is a great oppor-
ttinitv for tbe students of our University to step Into the limelight
find to show by their actions during the period of the convention
and by their entertainment of the visiting delegates that they are
a body highly deserving of a place on a par with the larger student
organisations across the line. The Ubyssey has gained a place equal
to that of the other student publications, as is shown by their membership insttch an association; It now remains for the student body
to prove by its treatment of our visiting fellow students that it is
worthy of having the honor of entertaining a delegation such as is
being sent by the foremost student publications of the Pacific Coast.

JHuckatorial
For the benefit ot the Frosh and a
few others, we reiterate that the term
"kids" is taboo on the campus. In
the high schools thii epithet waa very
proper and appropriate but at University it ia out of place. University
students are treated ae men aad
women (eieebt by the Sngllih Department) and are expected to aet aa such.
Yet on all sidea one hears. "Come on
kids, you kids, ua kids", ete. Thii li
probably dene in pure Ignorance or
carelessness but It sounds like —...
a nursery.
Imagine the Captain of the Mc
Keohale Cup Team atepplng en to
the field amid the eheere of the on-
lookers, and then turning around to
summon hla warriors by catling,
"Come on, Kids."
Or think of the President of the
Student*' Council announcing at aa
Alma Mater meeting, "We kids propose to do ao and ao," tncredlblef
Yet tbeee men are obliged to eon-
sort dally wtth creatures who consistently label themselves and eaoh otheri
ae '"kids." If you consider yourself
aa a kid, Well and good, but don't proclaim It to the world.

STYLES FOR SCIENCE
There are startling rumours afoot
regarding the sartorial effusions that
Science will don thla year. The mode
thla session will probably take tbe
form of a bright red hat-band to be
worn oa all occasions.
Thla innovation readily lends Itself
to the whims of Individual taste. We
may expect to see dainty little bows
decorating the head-gear of Science
'81. Oranny knots should be affected
by hard-boiled Science '30, while the
senior years will display complicated
and scientific knots. Still, any of
theae styles ahould show to advantage
against the brand of head-wear used
by the average Science man.
However, there is another side to
this affair. There may be occult and
ulterior motives behind it all. Rod
Is the colour of revolution. Who
knows but that the whole Science
horde has gone Bolshevik and has
adopted the red hat ribbons aa a sign
of their beliefs? That is Just what
one would expect of Science. Another
reason might be that, remembering
the fate of their multi-coloured bowlers last year, they have chosen a
badge of the only colour that waa not
on their unforunate derbies; in the
hope that the Artsmen will sparo
them thla time.

..From ail angles lt looks aa though
thia ia going to be the beat year of
sport at the University for many
years. It, at least, will be the beat
balanced year that We have seen
sine* the removal out to Point drey,
President James Sinclair oan wear a
broad smile over two or three facta
and they stand out as plain aa they
have ever done in the history of Varsity athletics. They can be summed
up In * tew words: English rugby will
hive a very creditable season at the
least. Canadian rugby la In the aame
class. Swimming will be way up
among the top notohers aa a campus
sport Basketball should have a share
of the breaks (at the outside) and lee
hockey, from all that can b* gathered,
ahould have a championship season
with Coach Granger at the helm. However, there are certain sports that may
fall down it they do not get more
support, and they are soccer, track
and possibly boxing.
Track haa had a steady set baok
since llll and Varsity, with a few
exceptional men, has not produced a
heavy all round scoring team tor quite
a number ot years. The trouble Is
obvious to anyone who knows the
dope on successful traok seasons. We
have not developed a decent hurdler
here in the entire history of the
school. We have not bad a weight
man of any calibre over the same
period ot years, and we will continue
In this rut unless tbe traok olub gets
up and forces the Issue in these
events. Just tbe other day the traok
men elected Jack Wilson president of
the organisation and they are to be
congratulated on their choice as be Is
one of the most wide awake men in
the college to handle this Issue. He
has had plenty of experience in the
game, and as has been always advocated ln these columns. He is the ideal
man to boost the sport as he is forced
by doctors' orders to give up sprinting, and so has turned his energies
to tho managing of the aport.
The big weakness in Varsity track
thin year will be the sprints, weights
and hurdles. The College ot Puget
Sound and Washington meets are yet
many moons away, but now is the
time to start developing men in these
events to patch up the holes. If
something is not done it means that
Varstly sacrifices 40 points before they
ever enter a dual meet. The shot,
javelin, discus, 120-yard highs and
280 lows, 100 ami 220 yard dashes are
handed to the other team before we
start. Figure It out on paper and you
can see we have not a ghost of a
chance to win under those conditions.
It does not mean that they will have
to get men who can at least get a
good second and third to keep the
acore balanced. Against Puget Sound
two years ago we hammered out
eleven straight wins to score II
points yet we were so badly swamped
in the lows and highs and some
weights that we came out victors by
three points.
A suggestion to track men as a
whole might save them from a tew
gasps at the end ot next year. It
Is not hard to get a few men Interest-
ed le weights and get them out early
this winter to train steadily until n*xt
spring. Coach Granger haa ottered
his service* at noon hours from now
until spring and many other man oan
be found who would be glad to com*
out onee In a while. A* far as
hurdling goes tt U a well known tact
that you oan develop a hurdler figure-
tlvaly on a blackboard. A man who ia
interested In the game oan beoora* a
fair timber topper before spring out
door practice by getting a man to give
chalk talks and demonstrations at
noon hour this winter.
Thia fact has been borne out by
PROSPECTS BRIGHT
F0RJW1MMERS
The Varsity Swimming Olub Is
rapidly rounding into shape for tbe
Winter. The president ot tbe Olub,
Johnny Williams, states that the
Club's chances are becoming brighter
with every practice. "The Club?' be
says, "have the flrst three places tn
every meet cinched, in the diving
seotton." That this assurance la well
founded la evident when the wealth
of talent available la considered.
First, et oottrse, Is Bak*r, who has not
been defeated In this class for the laat

Cummlnga, a new arrival from Saskatchewan, who haa cleaned up ell
oppoettion ia his own neck of the
woods and who came second to Baker
Set year at Banff; thirdly, then la
rale Peden, who halls trom the
sleepy city, aad who extended Baker
to the utmoat laat year In the Victoria Invasion, With thla formidable
team sporting the Blue and Oold, the
going certainly looks rough tor aoy
opposition they may encounter.
Norman Cox, the Varsity mentor,
la almost aa well pleaaed with the
showing made by the rest ot tbe team.
The breast-stroke team, la particular.
Is exceptionally strong. Mr, Cok
states that he haa never had auoh a
large turnout ot promising material tn
this class before. The mainstays of
thla department to date are Johnny
Williams aid Bob Sangster, a large
attd husky Freshman. These two are
showing excellent form already, and
there are a dosen more who are
rapidly rounding in to shape,
The appeal in "The Ubyssey" tor
comfortably padded gentlemen to uphold the honor of Varaity in tbe
plunge haa resulted ln a most satisfying turn-out. Thero are still, however,
several vacancies which only large
and pleasingly plump men oan fill
completely.
Tbe crawl, or free-style division is
also showing great promise, and in a
few weeks, after a little more practice
the team should be able to take on
any aggregation In the district and
get out ot the struggle with the Blue
and Qold showing well ln the lead.
Practice hours for those wishing to
put their national skill to some
practical use, are 8:80 to 10:10 p.m.
on Monday and 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. on
Wednesday.	
some ot the beat coachea ln the
country. Harry Hillman, veteran
Dartmouth coach and tbe man who
developed Earl Thompson and Monty
Wells, two of the best men lu America,
peat and present, Is a strong advocate
of pictures.
As tar as weight throwing goes
pictures are Indispensable, and chalk
talks lay the foundation of a successful spring programme.
Boxing should get very ounce ot support from the executive as lt Is a
coming sport up and down the coast,
and lt lt la properly handled affords
great exercise to many boys who have
not tbe time to devote to outside
games. Washington is anxious to go
to almost any limit to encourage the
sport here, feeling that the spirit developed in the ring and the good
sportsmanship that Is bound up with
a flrst rate team can not be overlooked. Training quarters have to be
looked after, a coach has to be secured, and more than anything else the
boy who ts not going into tho game
from the competitive standpoint hBB
to be taken care off. It would be encouraging to 8oe one hundred boys
working out in a gymnasium because
there are many boys at B. C, who are
not getting any exercise whatever. As
there are many boys with some experience it is possible to develop a
fair team to meet any squad ln dual
meet. However, the interest In the
fight game is quickly killed in any
novice It he goes down and gets a nice
eye the first time out. All these
matters will have to be taken care of
by tbe boxing executive and plans
made whereby boys meet only boxers
of their own ability.
Soccer It seems must work out Its
own salvation although it is up to
the students to give the gam* far
mere support than they are doing.
The best advertisement that varaity
has bad in th* last tew years baa
been their soccer team* as th*y have
always been a good sporting team on
any field.

Many Tennis Stars are
Away this Year
The draws were posted for the University Tennis Tournament yesterday
In the men's singles and men's
doubles. The ladies' singles, ladies'
doubles and mixed doubles are being
held over till Wednesday.
Many ot the old familiar faoes which
have been connected with University
Tennis in the peat will be mlaalng,
ton Stevenaott, the single* title holder
Jf**** t haa.graduated. Lorrl*
Baker that colorful and engaging
parson is now definitely out ofUni-
vereity tennia. Harry Seed, doubles
winner with Shields laat year and
member ot the winning IntorooUegiat*
team la now working aad will not be
back. Other men who will not he
back are Dykatre, the toll boy trom
Holland j Weld, hie doublet partaer
had eoual In height, aad Jim Logle,
one of the moat consistent players
who ever attended Varsity, Shields,
the titlaholder laat year, will be unable
to oompete this year In the alnglea.
He will pley la the mixed doublet
aad la the mea'a doubles, however.
Hope Leemlng, the holder of the
Western lateroollegtate title hat been
forbidden by her doctor from *nt*riug.
While many of the old standby*
will he absent *tlil there ar* quit*
a tew of them back to oomnete. Wally
Mayers, the runn*r-up last year, will
be baok and he la aa keen aa mustard.
Wally copped jhe New Westminster
title and the Fraser Valley title last
year, and he wants to add the Varsity
crown to hla collection. Allan Stevenson ahould give Mayers a good run.
He la as steady eg a rook. Any one
ot SoUy, Yolland, Brooks, Johnston or
Grant might upset the dope and
omerge at the top ot the pile.
The mena doubles looka like a fight
between Mayers and Stevenson, Solly
and Yolland and Orant and Shields.
It will be interesting to see which
team will come through. Solly And
Yolland have combination in their
favor; Mayers and Stevenson hare
Mayer's speed and Bsvenson's steadiness While Orant and Shields both try
to take the cover off the ball
Marjorie Oreig will be out to defend
her title, She has not played much
this year but she te keen and that
counts a lot, Donalda Strauss might
annex the title tor she has been playing fine tennia all year. Jeanne Car-
low, while her tournament play has
been curtailed this year, might hit her
stride and win out. It looka like one
of these three.
In tbe ladies doubles Donalda
Strauss and Jeanne Carlaw appear to
be the ultimate winners. None of the
other teams have bad either the experience or tbe practice together that
these two bave bad. That Is a big
factor.
In the mixed doubles Miss Carlaw
and Shields will try to defend their
titles. They will have plenty of opposition from Marjorie Oreig and Rob.
Noble or K. Raid and Allan McLuckie.
Both these teams are good and bave
played a lot together before.
There has been a wonderful entry
In the men's singles. Over fifty men
are trying to win the coveted singles
title. The entries in the rest of the
events have only been fair. It Is to
be hoped that the weathor will stay
fine until the tournament has been
run off; for the success of the tournament depends to a large extent on the
weather conditions in which lt is
played.
