To Send Winnipeg Rep
Teacher Training Monday appealed to Student Council for
an additional 'budget of $40 to send a representative to a conference in Winnipeg.
Council refused to grant the bud- V
get, but allowed Uie group to send
a  delegate  in  the hope  th!it   they
would   not   exceed   their   present
budget of $130,
There were three dissenting votes to the motion -Vaughn Lyon,
Joan M.'.icArthur and Dlanne Livingstone—-with the president giving up the chair to vice-president
Ilhll Dadson in order to vote
against the motion.
"This Is dlahoneat," Lyon said,
explaining hi« * stand. "It Ih underhanded to allow them to mtlte expenditures- that will be okayed later by the treasurer, ln effect you
are still giving them the $40."
Treasurer Phil Anderwon also expressed his stand: "If we gnwit
them this money it will mean any
group can come to Council for supplementary budgets," he said.
Lyon, however feel-s that the
only bonost thing to do U to give
a supplementary budget.
Student Council has already-
okayed an estimated $75 expense
of Teacher Training to send a del

THIS COLUMN initiates a
new feature in the Ubyssey, It's
purpose is' to give students a
picture of the general AM& business that comes before Student Council each Monday night.
From Our
Gad. Sirs
DESPITE the long faces of its appointed committee, Council has decided to go ahead with the Victoria invasion.
The invasion is not only a first rate excuse for a good
party—it will provide students with an opportunity to launch
a demonstration on the Parliament Building grounds in protest against the B.C. government's attitude toward the university.
The so-called committee to look into the matter, composed
apparently of mad-Victorian prudes, concluded that a boat
which would arrive back in Vancouver at 4 a.m. would not be
Just why the committee is apprehensive we don't know.
If they think that UBC students are a 'bunch of school kiddies
who can't he trusted alone after midnight it's high time they
woke up.
Students are quite capable of taking care of themselves
and the CPR's police force is quite capable of taking care of
any unduly obnoxious celebrants.
Eastward Ho
THE WESTERN inter-collegiate football league broke
up in 1948. Since that time, Alberta, Saskatchewan, and
Manitoba have contented themselves with non-conference
games against professional teams and with intermural schedules. Saskatchewan is taking the lead in reforming the league;
last year the students voted for a $2 fee increase to support
an intercollegiate team.
Now comes the suggestion that UBC should switch to
Canadian football. This would no doubt mean the dropping the
Evergreen Conference franchise.
A four team league with UBC and the other western
Canadian universities, such as the Eastern Canadian Intercollegiate league, theoretically, is a fine idea. The idealists
would see a tightening of the bonds of Canadian unity and the
more practical would see an improvement in the quality of
Canadian football, especially on the west coast.
A serious financial problem for the professional clubs is
an even more serious problem for the university teams for
it costs the same to ship twelve footballers from Vancouver
to Edmonton whether they be pro or pure.
Student support of their teams, which is half the show in
the east, would be non-existent except at home games. A pro
will play as long as he is sure of his pay-cheque, but a college
player needs the backing of his fellow-students with all its
raucous high-jinks and good fun.
A university education is an expensive experience, even
with government aid. And increase in expenses would not
be tolerated.
There's a good chance that in the future, the Trans-Rocky
route will become a familiar, cheap one. But until then, the
Thunderbirds would do better to work to the top of the Evergreen conference.
ARE religions nothing but a bundle of dogmas, customs
and rituals only?
There seems to be some reality in what is called truth, in
something known as Love, Beauty, and the whole society operating under that one continuous never-changing law of nature.
Perhaps it is that rather dimly shining natural law, with which
our moral laws must be in accord, which in other terms is
known as religion.
Religion seams primarily to bo seeking to ir.Mlel ln a natural way
human rtdatlons on certain spiritual basses, and morail laws. From the
Islamic belief in tho teachings of (iod as expressed through tho Prophet Mohammed In the Korean to the Buddhists doctrine of Nirvana: and from the Christian's belief in Christ as Saviour to the
Hindu's doctrine of Karma, all sueai to bo seeking the samu light.
Though [ do not for a moment pretend to be an expert on religious
teachings, yet from my experience of teeing different religious in pra-
tlce. I notice that apart from the approaches to find and establish the
spiritual basis for tbe Natural Moral Laws, the goal for all the religions seems to be the same—modelling human relations in a natural
way -and therefore thoy all seem to be alike.
The persons holding a particular faith would perhaps be inclined
'.o term right the approach used and established by their own religion,
and the others might, tend to call it wrong; but for me it is just
^ So the (niostion of one's conversion fades into the background
because whichever religion one belongs to matters little as all of
them are just different leflwtions of the same colour.
My veneration for all the religious is the si* me and to attempt to
do the most good in the service of humanity according to the natuiat
moral law (which is bound to be subjective) in my religion.     *

The Last Dream
THiE stars burned drill holes in the solid cold—
A phantom music whistled through the holes
And hummed in trailing swoops around his head;
The hungry timber line below him reached
And reasched so black and silent toward his feet —
He looked to see if two dead feet still lay
Before him in the drifting snow and let
Himself fallback into the hollow, white
And strangely  warm,  that  drugged  his  head  with  sleep.
The small, warm, hidden core of his numb brain
Thought of yellow .candles, say a great
Unending vision of the world In peace
Arising from a hot, white tungsten frame:
The flame grow small and cold and, vaulting up,
It found a place among the bright star-holes.
IN fear his dog lay crouching, lifting up
ills  niMiiibing  nose  In  hollow  wolf-sounds  while
Ills soul sank hack to some primeval cave
Whose liehmed  walls reflected  that first glow.
And there beyond the smoking ihimes tw > bright
And glowing coals burned in a hairy head
AND all their yesterdays had conquered nil
Tomorrows till the snow had drifted o'er
Tho heap and nothing there remained hut one
More star-hole iu Uie cold infinity. —MAUIAN C. CRICKMAY.
White shell on the shore sang* of -muffled surf
To tho ear of a shaggy  man.  Absorbed ' *

To sum* and to hear and to iaste--to live,

At one willi the man. The tree and the grass,
The deer and the bear -'Brother  Hear]"
The life-bringing Sun, and the storm, the stars,
And  the  . miv.ilh-siirging,  limitless  sea.
White shell on the shore sang of muffled surf
To a child, born  free  from the (dock;
Ailrifl. for ,i time, from th* ding of the hell,
From the screaniiug whistle, the dollar bill

"Hey, Johnny   A.way to work!'  To work and to earn
And  an  end   to  learn,  love,  and  -live. ,
White shell sings now of lhe surf to the sea,
Singing alone on the shore. Unman-alone, yet not alone,
Staying one with the tilings that are.
And still come the deer and llie bear to the shore,

audience which crowded the
Auditorium, Wednesday evening.
Robert MnMedian, cast in the
Important role of Don Alfonse
was handicapped by a Strepticoc throat which considerably lessened the resonance of
his voice. He found great difficulty In. projecting his voice
above the orchestra.
The plot of the opera is a
light-hearted, but somewhat
fanciful tale of the complicated
love affair -of four young Ne-,
opolttans. Ferrando, played by
Karl Norman, and Gugllemo
are 2 young army officers engaged to two young ladles,

her sister Donapella (Joyce

presuades her mistresses to receive them. After some halfhearted opposition on the part
of the two sisters, the new-
corners, a pair of fast laddies,

The affair proceeds, with
such rapidity that a notary Is
called In that very evening to
witness the marriage. Don Alfonso announces ithe return of
the soldiers; the bogus Albanians vanish and the terrified
ladies make confession to their
original lovers. In true fairytale Jashl-an, everything. etuis
on a happy note.

Karl Norman, played the
part of Ferrando, with assurance, and brought most of the
humor with his agile eyebulls
and mobile moustache. Ills
powerful clear tenor voice
cpuld easily be heard over the
orehe/sitra, whose -accompanl-*
ments could have been a little
more subdued.
Dorabella, played adroitly by
Joyce Nenman, could not be
heard at all times, although
the extreme facility, of produc-
dlton and pretty tonal quality,
off set this defect.     *
Ian Docherty's protrayal of
Oflgllelmo failed to come up to
the standard set by the other
artists. His voice failed to carry in the large auditorium, possibly due to first night blues.

plus another hockey team, but
even at that Birds won threo of
their last four games,
The Commercial Hockey League's
leading team lost a tough "hockey
game way back in 1951. Around
December 12. to be exact. Due to
exams Birds could'only.ice eleven
men for that game, but they went
down fighting against -a lilfth-atep-
plng Burnaby Beavers hockey club.
With three of their top stars absent the Uh'ds extended the Beavers to the limit whistle but bowed
out to a 6-4 score.
The following week, playing the
same team, Birds were back to almost total strength ond revenged
their previous loss by skating to an

Over the holidays Birds took a
big vacation from hockey until
January 2. Holidays accounted for
a turnout of five players. However,

team of the New Westminster Twl-

Captain Haa*s Young picked up
his usual couple of points h game
and Is now out in front of the lea-

Steve Gryschuk, away for three
or four games has dropped back to
third place in the scoring race. But
with a game this week and one
next week Steve should Improve
his position.
The PNE Indians and the Thunderbirds are tied . for the league
leadership with the PNE having
a game ln hand. These two teams
play two bames in the next two
weeks and two wln» for the college boys will give them undisputed possession of top spot plus &
better than average ehanoe of win
ning the league championship.
With six college exhibition games coming up for the Birds in February there will be plenty of hockey for students next month. Although student attendance has
been poor to date it is hoped that
more interest will appear ln one
of UBC's only winning teams.
Birds will play three more
games in the 'regular schedule of
the Commercial League this season before the finals begin. They
are assured of a playjoff spot, and
even though the PNE Indians will
represent Vancouver In the Canadian Coy Cup finals by reason
of UBC exams, the Birds will plav
plenty of hockey before the close
of the season.
Thunder/birds tonight play an exhibition game with the New West

In many years, the Crimson Tide should present little difficulty to
tha 'Birds. As John Newton, starry left winger of the 'Birds and ex-
Tide members put it, after watching the Tide, "There's nothing so
wonderful about them that some hard tackling won't cure.''
Coach Albert Laithwaite corroborated this opinion, remarking
that the Vancouver leagues are much tougher than those of Victoria.
Only In the full back position, where the Tide have Derek
Hyde-Ley, a veteran or considerable playing experience both here
and In England, and who is possibly the best full back on the Coust,
does Victoria rate superior to the 'Birds.

With an eye to warmer weather and another at the six

Rosy Ring Future
For UBC-Robinett
With twenty-two embryo boxers in the fold, Bob Robinett
predicts a rosy ring future for UBC, if proper facilities can be
constructed in the near future.
A tentative schedule, supervised® *	
by   the  athletic   director
would consist of conditioning and
development prior to Christmas
with the first actual meet coming
early in January against the local
Later In the npring term, if possible, dual meets would be arranged with some of the top American
colleges in ring circles, Gonzago,
Washington   State and  Idaho.
Care would be taken not to over
mUch any of the boys but good
competition would aid ln their development.
