SpoH has'for sdme tboe Iweti' lixmsidered the outlet for the Mlsial spirits ot the male, and (females have been consigned' to what have b#ea regarded to be maidenly and woffftoly duUes, ,in the spirit' of .- the Vietorlan poet who held that man was to^ ihiti'j^d and woman for the hmrth. hAve changed clneethat tUn�, and with women infringing in what Wfi^'eonsidered man's field, in the r^Mmof polities ahd other public .'affairs, so the field of sport has.been lliViked. This i% a .triendly lB''t)�f way it beheisu 'tteor '" I a corollary, menUlIy. the coming of the girl into the rea^ of sport the word "tomboy" In isWlKVgttage has lOM its meaning, in tint-it Is regarded that the maiden dMa.not lose her maidenly qtialitles bri^^g the rough and tumble of ont-do^tiport. For the future benefit of tli�i�e�, in creating healthy mothers, th�|^Bew inspiration among thb gtrlsj wb^'are to be women to take part lu heljlthy sport Is the instinct of Natare^ ao^tlr as the British nation Is con" cftr&eOr to conform to the rale ot th^ survival of the fittest, it the nation is^nbt'to be decaident it requires sacb nuwiuM sporty for our girls. The gjfla of the High School are eh9}ring themselves no mean expon' �nt� ot the game of basketball. Their play in the last game has been gener-aUy commended, and their lightning passej^'and general combination were plisasing to the eye. A ywug maiden can possess all the uatdenly attributes, and lo4e nothing itljUiwn; in the engaging in athletics iShe will thereby lose aU those traits Of affectation and what may be called silly demureness, which some of the , tnc effect. It win help to make her a liiitman rather than an artificial woman. It wUl be well for our girls, hoireyer, while enjoying the attrac-tioilS of athletics just as boys and foibc men do. not to altogether affect ilieir language and manners as they axe sometimes evidenced. The girls sboald not be imitators but should have their own womanly code. We do not want mannish women but \^oman-women, and there should be nothing allowed to destroy the ideality of fbe,sex. The ethics ot sport will be inveluabie to women, and a familiar etquaintance with these will give women that spirit ot give and take which �Will be invaluable to them in the new encounters in life in which women I are bound to adventure, in the new spheres which have been opened up to hear a great deal of the debt oif honor as owed to ,jbhe retiiped. men who have gone thi;ough suiferings and hard^hi^ in lighting om* oattlei. Thece is^no oh6 who will disnute that it is a debt which has been righteously impostm and which has to be religiously discharged to the best amlity'bf the nation and the indnddual. We call it a debt of honor in the full estimation of what the term conveys. We thereby define what a debt of honor means. We know exactly why it has been incurred and why it has to.be paid. It is a debt of sentiment rather than a debt which can be rigidly enforced by the law. Thereby we aisj^Ume a volunt^ responsibility. When the spirit of the debt of honor is fully appreciated it becoiQes an individual duty to apply it to his and hei* conuduct of life. We are accustomed to associate debts of honor in a ni^onal rather than an individu^;! relation. But the natiim is made u^ of individuals, and what is regarded as becoming a nation should equalljr be regarded as becoming the mdividual. In the true cohduct of life there is th^ respoa^bllity of payihg'bur debts of honor. Each individual has his debt of honor, and the keener he and sheipefceire where these debts lie and sets himself and herself to honorably discharge the debt, thc^ nearer will be approached that perfect life* free from selfishness and with higher aims and motives than considering our own interests. TKefe^lis the debt of honor we owe our conscience; there is the d^bt of honor we owe our own self-respect; there is the debt.of honor ^e owe o\ir fellow man; there is the debt t�f-Tlonor we cMti our creed aiid our church. In the measure we sens^ our individual responsibility we raise behi^ it a debt of honor. An honorable life then does not merely meAn.Ute paying of our lecal indebtedness. There ar^e the dr^eB.nn^in^,.t? putationS ageiast his department there ' might Wft'be so much reason tor criticism. The bid party bosses attack the group system but they do not seem yet to understand that the group system hab developed out of disgust with the old party system. The choice of Mr. Ferguson is hardly likely to remove that disgust. At this time parties should be led by men, who are entirely above suspicion, if they expect to break up the group system. They must abandon o]d methods. Service for the public welfare should be the guiding motive. It is hardly possible that Conservatives who aligned themselves with the fanner group in Ontario will be attracted back to the fold by the Ferguson leadership. Lumfcer has dropped In price. Touch wood. Winnipeg's new mayor is a baker. He didn't reduce the price of bread to get votes either. THEY HAVE NOT LEARNED THE LESSON The Conservatives of Ontario seem ta 6b little concerned about the revolt l^ga^nst party government. The choice (it Hon. Howard Ferguson as leader is a direct challenge to the forces active in attempting to bring about an improvement in the old methods ot party gpvernment. Mr. Ferguson la certainly e good party man and he tbeiievea in ; the old methods. Apart from that he etaads under suspicion today of con-ioiBting the affaire of the Department of Jdines and Lands In Ontario so i^pscily during his regime that thous-l^ds. of dollars, investigators find, metp lost to the province.
