"Removing the restriction would
not force people into business on
Sundays. Whether or not business
operates Is their own concern."
In presenting his arguments for
the opposition Franck said: "The
Sabbath must be set aside for the

"Sunday Is tho one day when the
strong man can not impose his

why the clergy and trade union
officials oppose open Sundays.

Franck said: "What we choose to
do on Sundays is not always the

we remove temptations which detract from religious observances.

Head Football Mentor Turns In
Resignation At Wednesday Meet
In a surprise move before the Men's Athletic Directorate
Wednesday night, Orville Burke resigned his position as head
coach of UBC's Thunderbird football team.
Although he gave no reason for *;
his resignation ln a letter to the
athletic body, officials said he resigned   "for   business   reasons."

"Burke is too busy downtown,"
Brock Ostrum, president of the
Mens Athletic Association, said al
the conclusion of the meeting. "He
does not feel that he has the time
to spend on the campus, and still
darry out his duties as a businessman."
Ostrum pointed out that Burke's
work was just beginning under the
new athletic setup. "It will take
two or three years before we have
a winning football team," he said.
"But I am sure that there is no
malice whatsoever in Burke's resignation."
Ostrum said that no one has
been considered as a replacement
for Burke and applications have
not been called for.
"This move has definitely come
as a surprise," Ostrum said. "I am
sure that every football fan on the
campus will be sorry to see Burke

Sun Dial With Curves, Yet
A sun dial with a concave curved
face to compensate for the margin of error found In conventional
sun dials is the brain child of Blag-
don Phillips, who designed this
unique scientific device for the
Faculty Club lawn in 1946.
The principle ot the dial is based on the fact that the sun und the
clock are only In agreement four
days In the year.
On the other !I61 days there are
varying degrees of dlscepancy,
which amount to a maximum difference of 16 minutes between the
sun and the clock. This time span
may be fast or slow according to
the season.
Thus, in conventional sun dials
corrections have to be made if tho
correct cldck time is wanted. These
corrections will vary according to
the date.
The curved face sun dial needs
no corrections, clock time being
shown directly by using a shadow
point instead of a shadow line.
The hours are represented by
ecliptic curves, which automatically compensate for the discrepancies known as the "equation of
The hour curves are In red and
black; red for the half year from
January to June, and black for
tho half yoar from July to December.
Since the sun Ih at lis zenith
in midsummer, the shadow point
will appear on the part of the
curve nearest to the Roman numerals. Each succeeding day It will
be a little further from the numeral,   along   the   black   curves,   at
the hours.
In mid-winter the shadow point
will be at the extremities of the
curves. After this It will progress
along the red curves.
The position of the shadow point
is therefore dependent upon the
altitude of the sun, and upon the
date, so that the months or the
seasons may be Indicated on the

Student Seeks To
Education of 8. C.
"The government is making it
moro and more difficult for Indians to ko to university,'' states
Doug Wilkinson, a UHC agricultural student who is attempting to
promote educational facilities for
Indians through his new magazine,  "Indian  Time."
Wilkinson, a short, greying naval
veteran with Sioux blood, is seeking to Increase Interest in the Indian cause In liis monthly magazine, which he claims has a larger circulation than any other Indian journal.
"This year the government 1ms
enabled only five Indian students
to attend   1'UC.  This  represents tt
definite decrease oven though the
Indian  population
creased Un'12,000.
"Through 'Indian Time,' I hope to
raise sufficient agitation to get
Ihe government to send more Indian boys to university. If I can
persuade the government to send
two more Indians to university I
will consider that 1 have accomplished something."
"My publication will work for
educational and health services,
keeping In mind the traditions of
our fore-fathers. In the field of education each provincial universit)
has many courses which can be
adapted to Indian needs. UUC,
under the direction of Dr. Gordon
Shnim, has an excellent eight week
short   course  for  rural  young  pen-
of H.C.   has  in-J pie,  which  would  be of particular
benefit to the Indian student.
"Preservation of native culture
and arts, linked with modern education and practical facilities, Is
the only hope for Indian survival."
Wilkinson plans a special Christinas issue of "Indian Times.'' It
will contain articles of an educational nature written by Indians
and the cover will be illustrated
by an Indian. Twelve, hundred
copies  will  be  printed.

$2 a year," he said. "Anyone who

Let s Go Into Business
The Ubyssey believes that if students
are ever to get to the bottom of the aging
question of University bookstore prices, they
are going to have to take matters into their
own hands.
Statistics about the ever-rising costs of
hooks have never been enough to convince
lhe average student that he is paying the
lowest possible retail rate for every book he
The best way all of us can find out about
the book business is to go into the book business ourselves.
Why not?
,Qther universities have long been oper-
ating co-operative bookstores with notable
success. ,,
Our own Commercemen do a good job
each fall with the book exchange. Granted,
it's not a co-operative effort, but the point
remains that students are capable of running
a book business.
It is with Regret
It is with profound regret that The Ubyssey must announce the resignation of Orville Burke, head coach of the UBC Thunderbird football team. No other coach before
him has commanded the respect of students
and players as did Burke during his two
years as head mentor at UBC.
When football teams lose games consistently, it is inevitable that a hue and cry is
seftt up from either alumni, students or play-
ers. In the past weeks, UBC has witnessed
a -drastic change in its athletic policy and in
she past years it has witnessed a consistently
losing football team.
In many cases, the first person who loses
his head over a losing football team is the
coach. It is notable that during the preliminaries to the athletic shakeup, students and
alumni alike levelled not one word of criticism
against Burke.
* A man of lesser stature would long ago
have given up the task of coaching UBC.
With little depth in his roster and a multitude of injuries, Burke neverthless remained
as coach.
Naturally, actual management of a cooperative business to serve the purposes of
the present bookstore would have to be in
the hands of one or more full-time, hired
The Ubyssey has no quarrel with the
present management of the bookstore as such.
But we do feel that the "reasonable profit"
that is now being taken in by the University
could well go directly back to the students.
We have no Utopian illusions about slashing book prices in half by means of a big,
iat annual rebate. We believe, though that
a worthwhile saving could be made by the
Whatever the venture's outcome, it would
settle all doubts once and for all.
Is it possible, under sqme other system,
to provide textbooks for students at rates
lower than those now prevailing?
We think so. And we think the co-operative system would be the most sensible way.
The point is that Orville Burke didn't
have to lift a hand to help UBC. He is employed at a comfortable salary .by a business
firm which takes up a good deal of Ills time.
Neverthless, he gave of his time and energy
because he had faith in UBC and its ability
to win ball games.
The measure of Burke's worth to the university cannot be measured in the number of
games that he succeeded in making the team
win. This would be a poor standard at best.
His worth lies in the respect that he built
up for UBC amongst other colleges in the conference and in the faith he commanded
amongst players and students at the university.
If Burke's successor has the same faith
in UBC and commands the si*me respect of
students and players, we need have little fear
for the future of football here.
* * *
We notice a poster in the Arts building
urging students to "Sing your way through
Varsity." This seems to confirm our previous
suspicions that a B.A. degree may be had for
a song.
The Bird Cage
by Hyftjn
Quagmire had become cheesed off with
university. Why, he asked, should I be a
social parasite with the government extorting,
money from honest citizens so I can waste
m,y time with such trivia as the esthetic implications of Renaissance Art?
He saw himself as a blood-sucking leech,
a drain on society, and a potentially useless
arts graduate, so long cloistered and sequestered in the unreality of university life as to
be unable to tie a shoe-lace or wash a dish,
let alone hold a job. He would be liberalized,
broadened, and have the basis for ignorance
in an amazing number of fields.
He even wished that he had become an
engineer so that people could point to him,
and say: "There goes a useful, functioning
member of society. He built the Herbert
Anscomb Memorial Bridge between Robson's
Landing and Castlegar." And he would lift
up his head in pride realizing that he was
a cog in a well-oiled machine.
He became infatuated with this notion,
and decided that now was the time to face
"I", he proclaimed dramatically to his
friends in the Georgia, "am now going out
into society to function. The Outside will be
hard and cold, but enough of this secluded,
monastic existence. Build ye graven images
unto me, and burn ye incence at the altar
of my fame."
He stood, hand poised Napoleon-likp on
his breast, on the threshold of Life, waiting
for his comrades to utter groans of disappointment. He nearly lost his hat in the resulting
sigh of relief.
Quagmire's mother  was  somewhat loss
than happy.
"My son, my son," she sobbed, burying
her wrinkled old face in her apron, "I worked
sixteen hours today selling pansies on the
street-corner so you could get yourself educated. And now, everything I dreamed for—"
Quagmire gulped as she pressed a few
coppers into his hand.
"My boy," cried his father, his bent,
decrepit frame quivering with emotion,, "For
years and years I've picked gum wrappers
off the boulevard so you could go to the
big university to get yourself learned. Here's
fifty cents. I was gonna use it to buy ma
and the kids some beans for supper tonight.
But you need it more than we do,"
And his sister — Alas, he could only
think of what Mr. Livingstone had said on
the subject.
The next clay Quagmire went to see a
hard-headed, realistic business acquaintance,
who explained a degree in terms of leverage.
It seemed that a degree was sort of a crowbar to lever more honest and deserving people
from their hard-won jobs on the grounds that
they didn't have a sufficient back-ground.
Quagmire then turned to a sage, priestly
old professor of his, who spoke of degrees
in terms of military exemption.
'War," said he, shaking his finger knowingly at a battered old globe. "Canada won't
recruit her brains to be moved down in the
front line this time."
"Yes, sir," said Quagmire downing his
eighth beer at the Georgia, "a university
education is the most practical thing you can
have when you come to consider it in terms
of dollars-and-cents value."
Letters T© The iter
Editor, The Ubyssey,
pear Sir;
The piteous whines of the Totem
staff are plainly heard ln Thursday's UbyBsey. While bragging ot
thejr consistently Wrst rate Totem,
thqy are apparently Insufficiently
convinced of its literary worth to
allow any competition with their
jnastoi'piece. This Is logical. To
many students on the campus and
certainly to most Engineers the
Totem is a poor buy. While It
may be Interesting to use It to
see which suckers joined which
fraternity this year and to read
the three other pages devoted to
Engineers, there ls little else ln lt
of Interest to Engineers. The fact
that the fraternity and sorority
pages are paid for by members of
the fraternities ahd sororities does
not make It any more palatable.
The same thing ean be said for the
large number of pages donated to
self aggrandlasment of Totem and
Ubyssey staff members. The truth
is that the remaining pages Just
aren't worth $4.25. There is a crying need for a low cost yearbook
devoted to the students of a particular faculty and the Engineer's
Yearbook ls a beginning In this
direction. If Totem sales suffer
from its production then it may be
taken that the sudents who did
not buy a Totem are not In favor
of spending $17,500 of student
money on a Vreek Rogle's Gallery
and this sum should be reduced
in future years. If the committee
to prevent duplication of material
eliminates ail references to Engineers from the Totem then It Is
Inevitable that Totem sales w||l
suffer In Engineering. If, however
the staff produces a straightforward T,otem of Intermit to alt faculties then it need fear no inroads
In Its sales from any faculty yearbook.
Yours sincerely,

Councillors Look
Into Changes
In Constitution
Two student council members
have been ordered to investigate
the possibility of revamping the
AMS constitution.
Jim Midwinter, co-ordlnator of
activities, and Ivan Feltham, sophomore representative, will comb
through the list of student laws
to ensure that 'students are fairly represented" in their student
The lack of faculty representation Is one stumbling block' which
Midwinter will attempt to overcome.
"Twelve hundred engineers and
hundreds of students in other faculties can only channel their
thoughts through one man, the
head of Undergraduate Societies
Committee," he said.
"We aren't  assuming the  constitution needs revamping, we are
just going to have a good look
and find out.'
