beauty of manner and custo0m1 as well

Government in Savai, the only I
land where the race remains today in ;
its pure form, is of a simple kidt. A
hierarchy of chiefs is formed in each
village, it is the ambition of' each
youth to become a chief, ani it is te
greatest punishment that can ver
befall a young man to have tils rigit
taken away front lit11. \\hin dis -$
putes arise, the chief cetis a tconiiil
of all the village to settle the trouble
and punish the offender.
A boy is initiated into manhood by)
tattooing his body front the (hest toI
below the knee. One of tree artistic
patterns may be chosen. The process
is a very painful one, often lasting
several weeks, and there is great an-
ger of infection froze the wounts, but
the Polynesian youth believes tht the
pain is necessary to attain his ideal.
"People often ask whly we do net

Mrs. Flaherty stated. "That is be-
cause loIve does not play the imptt'ant
