Campus co-chairmen, Peter Shields, June Dawson and
Jean Cameron, stated Wednesday that absence of donors is most noticeable in the
a campaign to make more efficient use of vast NFCUS organizational machinery.
Student Council vice-president Ron Longstaffe says UBC
delegates may propose more
efficient uses for NFCUS's salaried president, secretary-treasurer, and the more than $20,-
000 annual budget.
"But we can't say definitely
what we will propose until we
get there," he cautioned.
Longstaffe said delegates expect to call for a day-long seminar on methods of student

other Canadian universities,
and I am sure others can learn
much from us."
He cited UBC's active noon-

Canadian universities.

—-in the group's national student magazine "Campus."
Delegates have ploughed

"The Social Credit government must adopt a new attitude to the opposition
parties," Arnold Webster,
CCF MLA told an audience
of InO students at noon Wednesday.
"The number of Social
Credit votes in the last election was much lets than fifty
percent of the total. Therefore, because the CCF and
Liberal parties represent
such a large segment of the
voters, they should lie consulted as advisors. Instead,
the administration proceeds
in the old tradition, considering   that   the  opposition   is
there only to destroy the government."
Webster went on to say
that the modern governmenl,
bolh provincial f,nd federal,
is composed of laymen, average people who are given a
great deal of authority and
have to pass on involved legislation.
"They will achieve good
government only when they
recognize their limitations
and accept leadership from
experts," lie said.
He emphasized the problems faced by modern society, and said that trained
University graduates will
take the lead in finding solutions to these problems.

A Useless  Law
Forty years or more ago Sunday Blue Laws served a very
useful purpose. In those days labour unions and social legislation were an unknown thing. The seven day work week was
a known thing. And so Sunday Blue Laws were a boon to the
"workingman. They were a form of social legislation that guaranteed a day of rest.
Today the labour union and social legislation is a very
known, powerful and useful thing. With the advent of the
40 hour work week Sunday Blue Laws lost their only raison
d'etre. Today the contrary of the caste that existed 30 years
ago is true. Where the Blue Laws used to be a boon to the
working man they are today a bane to him.
With the 40 hour work week the Sunday day. of rest has
been turned into a day of boredom. Die-hard blue nose churchmen have decreed that either we spend our Sundays in church
or we spend them at home twiddling our thumbs.
It is high time the age of enlightenment reached British
Columbia. Must we always lay claim to being the last people
to welcome reasonable change? If the question is put to the
voters this December we would urge all eligible UBC students
to go out and vote for the abolishment of our antiquated
Sunday Blue Law.
If the churches cannot compete with baseball they should
look elsewhere than the Sunday Blue Law for their salvation.

Editor. The Ubyssey.
Dear Sir:
Few Protestants will agree
that separate schools are a
must for the welfare of Canada,
says the editorial writer, and
most students will agree that
the writer of the editorial on
Catholic schools then continued out over his depth. The
impartial observer, the status
he assumes here, is Protestant,
agnostic or atheist. By what
logic does a member of either
group become an impartial observer on the subject of Catholicism.
To staunch »Catholics, he
writes, temporal politics may
not seem too important. Then
to what does he attribute the
continual political turmoil in
the predominately Catholic
Latin American countries and
Italy, and the interest in and
knowledge of politics that students in Quebec as against
those in Western Canada have?
The writer of a recent anti-
Catholic book inveighs against
the Church for its excessive
political activity.
The editorial writer remarks
on the lack of interest in political matters shown by the
Church. The Church, he states,
condones and even aids some of
the    worst    dictatorships    on
earth. Argentina or Russia?
The editorial writer mistakes
tbe Catholic view. The main
requirement that the Church
lays down is that any regime,
whatever its character, conform to standards of law and
justice, and respect as well the
rights of the Church to teach
its doctrine. It is concerned
with the way a government
acts, not the type of political
form it constitutes.
Catholics "want public
funds" for the maintenance of
Catholic schools, he writes.
Just by the way, are Catholics
not members of the public?
Catholics in B.C. pay taxes for
the support of public schools.
They build their own schools
and pay all but a nominal part
of the cost of operating them.
Thus non-Catholic taxpayers
are relieved of the cost of building and operating schools to
accommodate the large number
of children now attending Catholic schools.
It is expressed in the declaration of Human Rights that
there is a prior right on the
part of parents to choose the
kind of education to be given
to their children. Is double
taxation the cost the Catholic
must pay to have this right?
Yours truly,

Yehl, the Raven, the Creator
the Transformer, according to
en Indian legend, was sorry for
the people in darkness, so he
brought light into the world.
Raven is a new literary magazine, published on the campus
of British Columbia. The in*
itial number of Volume I has
been Issued and there is not a
promise but a declaration that
there will be more. Let us hope
Raven is an interesting ex*
periment. It Is apparently de*
dlcated to the idea of bringing
light into the darkness about
the UBC campus. I can't say
that I understand it all, or why
some parts of its were written.
But I admit readily that this
may be due only to my obtuse*
ness. There are lots of things
about modern poetry, and music and art that are quite be*
yond me. Ideas struggling to
be born do not outline them*
selves distinctly. But no one
would deny them the right to
struggle, or eventually, to
An article that appeals to me
strongly, perhaps because it is
by a clansman of my own,
thought it is not written in the
ancient language of his ancestors and mine, is "Liberal Education" by Dr. Malcolm McGregor.
Dr. McGregor makes a plea
for a study of the humanities,
but he by no means excludes
the sciences. Three aims of
education he sets forth: to cultivate a critical judgment, to
cultivate tolerance, to cultivate
an atmosphere of dissent. In
the humanities he gives the
languages first place. They
have disciplinary qualities,
they open the gateway to
ideas, they provide perspective
unmatched elsewhere. In conclusion, he quotes Gilbert Murray:
"The fatal thing is to be shut
in the prison of the immediate
presdnt. This not only limits
your range of experience and
interest, keeping you occupied
with your immediate sensations . . . but, what is worse, it
keeps you wrapt in a thick
cloud of fashions and prejudices which you have no standard for criticising or understanding.
A liberal education, like
Yehl, the Raven, brings light
into darkness.
Several of the authors of
poems and stories published in
Raven have been students in
UBC's creative writing course.
Heather Spear* contributes
four strange, almost grisly asylum pieces. If, as Wordsworth
once put it, poetry is emotion
remembered i n tranquility,
then certainly this is poetry. .

If anyone looks over the list
of scholastic awards at the university of B.C., any spring, he
will see dozens of awards for
accomplishments in pure and
applied sciences, but few for
achievements in the humanities. There is an explanation
for this, the various industries
have been encouraged to provide scholarships in t'.ie subjects that interest them. But
not many industries, it would
appear, are interested in such
subjects as the living and dead
languages, philosophy, literature, the arts, and the social
It is encouraging, therefore,
to note that the Imperial Oil
Company has recently announced a scholarship in the
humanities, open to graduates
of Canadian Universities. It is
good for three years. When a
hard-boiled corporation spends*
money on a promotion of this
sort, it doesn't do it for sentiment. It must be persuaded
that the studies it encourages
have some value.
What is the value? Well, for
one thing, they provide standards, and industrialists arc used
to standards. They make it pos-,
sible to assess values, to tell
the genuine from the bogus.
Commenting on the announcement of the scholarship,
the Ottawa Journal quotes
James Russell Lowell to the
effect that the greatness of a
nation must be weighed in
scales more delicate than the
balance of trade.

"The rythms" of his painting swirl deeper into the richness of life and broaden into larger circles, encompassing its
greater joy," said B. C. Binning, UBC Art Gallery Director,
of the exhibition of Lawren Harris' paintings in the Fine Arts
Gallery in the Library.

President, Stew Paul announced Monday that in future
all singing professors will be
more than welcome to become
Gleeclub members.
Rehearsals have already
started for Gleeclub's annual
Christmas concert and for the
November student concert to
be held in the Auditorium.
Singers, professors or otherwise are wanted to take principle and secondary roles in
these productions.
The idea for faculty mem*
bers joining Gleeclub came at
the Elphinstone Leadership
Conference, whose members
discussed ways of getting bet*
ter student-faculty relations.
Gleeclub's proposal comes as a
welcome start to this new relationship.
Singing Professors will be
auditioned next Tuesday noon

"This event is of first importance in Canadian Art,"
continued Professor Binning,
"and we are deeply honoured
to open the Fall Showings of
the Gallery with the work of
this distinguished Canadian."
This month's exhibition
includes work from his early
period as well as non-objective
paintings created in the last
five years.
The exhibition will be on
display in the Fine Arts Gallery of the Library all of October, 10:30 to 5 p.m. Monday
through Saturday, and every

Time was when you could recognize a banker when you saw
one. Today, he looks like everyone else. And the smile never
leaves his face. Of course, if
you're overdrawn, the smile may
grow faint, and if you miss a
loan payment, the smile may be
hard to find. But it's an improvement over the days when
the banker advanced down Main
Street looking as if he expected
you to touch him for a nickel,
and if you stuck out your hand,
would bite off your arm up to
the elbow.
In the telepathic way these
things happen, you may even
be conscio'use of the fact that
the Royal Bank, through its advertising in the "Ubyssey," is
making goo-eyes at you, hoping
to draw you into the Royal fold.
We confess <ve like having U.B.C.
students as customers. You may
be a small, sub-marginal depositor now, but times will change
after graduation. And who
knows? The day may come when
you'll want to use us in a big
way. There are any number of
Royal Bank branches in Vancouver and its environs, and all
of them welcome student's accounts. Drop in, any time.

8. Birds Not As Bad
As First May Seem
Thursday, October 6, 19SS
At first glance the UBC's
football machine* has produced
nothing but five years of win-
less football and will probably
continue to do so* for the next
five years.
However, in the course of
these years, some outstanding
bali players have passed
through this college on their
way to the professional ranks,
the top of the football heap.
Opponents of the B.C. Lions
in the WIFU may have, on returning a punt or circling the
Lions lett end, run into an exceedingly jarring tackle. The
owner ot that shoulder is former Thunderbird end Norm
Fieldgate, who according to An*
nis Stukus. "hits like'I don't
lever "wanna be hit." Norm
played one season, 1053, with
the Birds before moving up
with the Lions.
Another ex-Bird, Leo Sweeney, is playing a solid game
at centre lor the Lions. A Vancouver Co'lege boy, Leo played
one season with the Thunderbirds, onf with CYO in the
Junior Br; Four, and spent
two years with the Calgary
Stampeders before returning to
The Lions only brother act.
Rae and Don Ross, were once
members of the varsity squad.
Don starred for UBC n 1950-
'51 and '52, leavng Varsty to
play for the Vancouver Blue
Bombers n 1953. He made a
name for hmseif last year wth
the Vancouver Cubs, showing
outstanding ability in pass-
catching. Ths earned him a job
at left end with the B.C. Lions.
Rae came into the football
world in 1952, playing defensive half for the Birds. Returning after a year's absence, he
starred for the Birds again in
1954. Rae jumped to the Lions
1522 W. Broadway 2263 W. 41st
CE. 1611 KE. 1871
this year, playing defensive half
and returning punts.
Dougie Reid, Lions' halfback,
was a member of the Birds
from 1947-1950. His name is in
the record books as one of the
all time Thunderbird greats,
Ted Dncan is another to
make the professional grade.
Duncan, moved into the Bird
quarterback slot last season in
place of the ineligible Gordie
Flemons. He developed into a
UBC stalwart under Don Coryell, and will be remembered
for his smart signal calling and

Thunderbirds   Kick   Off
Against Notre Dame Squad
It took years to do it, but the Birds have finally found
another crazy mixed up institution like UBC, composed of
Canadians playing American football against Yankees in a
tough small college U.S. league—and liking it.
The    university    is    Notre *
Dame,   none   other  than  the
fighting Irish, but the Saskatchewan variety. They play
against small college squads in
.Montana and North Dakota.
The inevitable happened, and
on Armistice Day, November
11, at UBC Stadium it will
be the University of British
Columbia versus Notre Dame.
At stake will be the honor
of the Thunderbirds who
proudly claim they are the
toughest squad in Canada playing American rules. The fact
that our wins in a season can
be counted on one hand with
four or five fingers left over
has never shaken this belief.
If we lose this honor, all we
will have to lose on this campus is fooiball games.
