Publications Board, at the Sprint; General Meeting.

McGill Tuition Up,
Covers Staff Wages
By RON CAPLAN (McGill University)
MONTREAL—-(CUP)—Substantial increases in the tuition fees of almost all'the faculties of McGill University will
become effective next term, it was announced by Principal
James. Under the new scale students will pay anywhere up to
; MY >   more for their degrees.
Totem Editor Swamped
With 1957 Editors
Council presented three plan?:
a one dollar straight increase
for sports, a $2.50 increase with
free athletic cards, and a $3.50
increase with free "A" cards
and four editions of The Ubyssey per week.
The Ubyssey successfully
made a plea io have any Publications Board increase divorced from a sports increase;
each major area will be voted
on seperately. Previously The
Ubyssey increase was tied io
the highest point of ihree
proposed   increases.

Referendum
Students will vote Wednesday on the referendum of
whether or not to increase fees for athletics and or publications.
There are three possibilities: no fee increase at all; a one
dollar increase to either Athletics or Publications; or a one
dollar increase for each.
If no fee increase is adopted, no improvements will be
made on the already shaky athletic situation. In fact, several
of the better aspects of athletics at UBC will be dropped.
The possibility of excluding extra-mural sports will be seriously entertained. Athletics may be confined to intra-mural
sports with no opportunities of better competition for athletes
and with the possibility of losing such athletes to Universities
offering them better opportunities.
The situation of the publications board is hardly so drastic. The Ubyssey will continue to operate as it does now, issuing three editions per week. However there will be an increased enrollment^ requiring more extensive coverage. There
will continue to be a lack of coverage to weekend sports
events since the first issue will not come out until Tuesday,
as it does now.
The second and third possibilities, a fee increase of either
one or two dollars, would provide for either more financial
stability to athletics or a fourth edition of The Ubyssey, or
both. Students can vote for one without endorsing the other.
In other words, if UBC students want to have teams in
games against other Universities, they can agree to finance
them. This vote should be the best indication of what the students think of university athletics. If students can see no advantage in promoting sports at UBC, they can defeat that part
of the referendum.
If voters want the Ubyssey to print an extra edition per
week specifically designed to cover weekend sports, they
can agree to up fees for that purpose.
The issues are as simple as that.
The vote will be an expression of whether the students
want an adequate athletic program at UBC and whether
they want another issue of the Ubyssey per week; whether
they want these things enough to pay an extra $2 for them.
A Better Paper?
An irate Forester drew cheers from the audience Thursday at the General Meeting whe he spoke against the Ubyssey part of the proposed fee increase. He said tho fee increase
wasn't justified until the Ubyssey could put out "a better
paper."
This comment brings into focus a large amount of semi-
coherent rumblings from different segments of the student
population.
First thing that i.s obvious is that there is no agreement
on what The Ubyssey lacks as a newspaper. The Letters to the
Editor column should make it clear to even thc most muddle-
headed that every move we make i.s met with both approval
and disapproval.
Club members complain about not enough blurbs. Others
want more news; boarded iconoclasts decry tho intellectual
standards of tho Ubyssey; others want more humour. No-
one likes the Ubyssey all of the time. This i.s the way it always has  been, and  perhaps  the  way  it  should be.
The matter of more money for publications i.s affected
not one jot nor one little by what your particular standards
for judging the Ubyssey may happen to be, nor how well you
believe we are living up to those standards. Those are subjective criteria.
But the objective benefits that students will gain from
the proposed increase are subject to little doubt:
(1) Four editions weekly;
(2) Delivered   before  breakfast;
('.)) World and national news from the wires of Canaidan
Press.
The question o what anyone thinks of the Ubyssey's
editorial policy, its newswriting, its success or failure at publicizing campus events is a separate story. The question i.s do
you want more and earlier editions, and wider news coverage, and are you willing to pay for it?
"Chekhov Ugh    Snorts
Province Drama Critic
Aim Up - Not Down!
Editor, The Ubyssey:
I^really must disappoint Mr.
Barrie Hale. The only obituaries I have written were for
the late Andrei Vishinsky and
thc present Aga Khan.
And I would suggest that
necrophilic would be a more
apt description of your drama
critic, if his idolizing of Chekhov is genuine and not just
keeping sweet with the drama
producer.
However, childishness aside,
I think I have a suggestion for
him which he might like to
mull over his pablum.
I feel that if drama is to survive in Canada — and flourish
— it will not do so through a
minority theatre.
A minority theatre, in effect,
is an intellectual effort to discourage the slobs from having
a dollar's worth of drama and
to throw them into the arms of
Ekberg.
A theatre which, if it does
address its box office, says —
"come along slobs and have
your minds improved.''
Which immediately scares
them back to their T-V chairs.
As a slob, who believes that
the theatre should entertain,
and has been associated with
the theatre — back and front
— I can only say that this is
why theatres are being turned
into supermarkets.
TUTS is not a minority
theatre. Their presentations
have mass appeal; they are of
the people and aim up at their
audience and not down.
Here is a great potential audience gasping for more and
what do we give them —Chekhov.   Ugh.
It is deplorable that when
many of us in Canada have
tried to help the theatre the intellectual snob comes along and
deliberately tries to keep us
slobs out.
I don't want Harrigan and
Hart,   but   neither   do   1   want
dusted-off Chekhov or warmed-
over Ibsen.
If the theatre is to live it
must be alive itself and it has
got to shake off its complacent
isolationism before there are
any more supermarkets.
How are we to encourage
Canadian writers to write
about their country, to estab'
lish Canadian drama as a recog.
nizable thing if our theatres,
are  empty?
And now the ball is at you*
feet Mr. Hale.
You want a minority theatre.
Okay, but stage Canadian
plays by Canadian authors and
it will be a minority theatre
worth going to.
You never know, it may
breed an exciting playwright
who will bring us slobs back to
the theatre.
If a university is to hold its
rightful place in a community
it surely must nourish talent —•
not stage resurrections.
— MICHAEL TYTHERLEIGH
Ubyssey Critic Replies
Tytherleigh "Flatulent'
I am a little nonplussed at
attempting to answer Mr. Tytherleigh; it is rather like being
confronted by a knife-wielding
psychopath and protesting that
you have just had the rugs
cleaned.
However, if I am correct in
assuming that there are rational statements contained in
his letter thai warrant an answer, his points seem to be
these:
1. Barrie Hale trys to keep
sweet with the drama producer.
2. Barrie Hale eats Pablum.
3. -'Minority Theatre'' is an
egghead plot to keep the 'slobs'
in the arms of Ekberg and in
front of T-V.
4. Tytherleigh is a slob.
5. Therefore, Mike Tytherleigh is not happy in the arms
of Ekberg.
(). TUTS is Mass-appeal
Theatre; ergo, TUTS is Good
Theatre.
7. Tytherleigh's reaction to
Chekhov is largely flatulent,
e.g.:   "Ugh."
8. Theatre1  in  Canada  is an
epic struggle between the intellectual snobs and tho intellectual  slobs.
9. Contemporary Theatre
plus isolationism equals supermarkets.
By BARRIE HALE
10. Tytherleigh does not
like supermarkets.
11. Canadian Drama will
not be recognizable in empty
theatres.
12. Minority Theatre is Bad;
Minority Theatre with Canadian plays by Canadian authors
is Good.
13. Good Minority Theatres
will attract the slobs.
14. The university must not
nourish stage resurrections.
First of all, what's wrong
vvith Pablum; indeed, what is
wrong with the supermarkets
at which it is sold? It would
seem to me that Mr. Tytherleigh is striking at the very
economic foundations of our
country.
1 am completely sure thai I
agree with Mr. Tytherleigh's
contention that minority theatre is bad, or even that there
is a minority theatre. Who is
this sinister minority? Are they
possibly the minority who realize that the only difference
between TUTS and T-V is that
you can't feed the monkeys on
your way to the T-V set'.' Are
they those who believe that because a play i.s old —-■ i.e.: not
written by a Canadian author
within the last ten years - ■■ it
need not necessarily be poor
theatre'' Are these the intellectual oligarchs who are keeping Mr. Tytherleigh entrapped
in the ostensibly repellent em
brace of Miss Ekberg? Apparently so.
Opposed to these tyrants, Mr.
Tytherleigh has ranged the
Majority, whom he chooses to
characterize as 'slobs.' These
are the people to whom TUTS
plays up, and everything else,
apparently, plays down.
This is hardly so; legitimate
theatre i.s still perhaps the most
powerful art form extant, due
both to its immediacy AND the
universality of the themes with
which it is concerned — and
this latter quality has nothing
whatever to do vvith the age of
a play, or the country or style
in which it was written.
Obviously, Mr. Tytherleigh's
slobs are convinced otherwise.
Who has convinced them? I
would suggest, as likely candidates, Mr. Tytherleigh and
others of his ilk — the gentlemen who suggest that theatre's
present plight is really the result of the lack of good plays
(i.e. Canadian plays); who prefer to grunt at Chekhov and
ogle the fluorescent bellybands
of TUTS dancers than admit
that theatre must often be a
moving display of uncomfortable social and ideological conflicts.
Most of all, it would seem,
so concerned are they with the
present multiplicity of supermarkets are they, that they are
ignorant of the unfortunate fact
that a good percentage of good
theatre was not written yesterday in Saskatchewan, and that
until il is. they are perforce required to witness a performance of Chekhov, or Ibsen, or
the rest of them there eggheads.
Or perhaps they are just trying to keep sweet with Bill
Buckingham. Friday, March 22, 1957
THE    UBYSSEY
PAGE THREE
Tie far
Leafing through the pages of
ihe UBC Alumni Chronicle, we
discovered at the back a section
on "What Your Alumni Are Doing." According to the Chronicle, they're doing pretty well.
Harry Soilmold, Aggie '24, is
now an Associate Professor of
Peavines and Clinging Roots at
Fertility Tech    in    Husk, Iowa.
Harry Mulch, Bio-chemistry,
'33, has been awarded a Nobel
Prise for the invention of protoplasm.
Harry Joist, Architecture '18,
, has designed a skyscraper eighteen miles high to house the offices of the Brazilian Fracture
and Friction Company, owners
of the world's only vertical railroad.
Harry Palehands, B.A, '27,
made the news recently when,
while street-sweeping in Prince
Rupert, he found a $12,000 paycheck, and honestly returned it
io its owner, Harry Slaver (Engineering '56).
Harry Greed, (Commerce '42),
made S12.000.000 last year by
marketing bridge lamps made
from old hernias. And Harry
Esioppal, (Law '47), has been
appointed Chief Justice of the
Lumby Supreme Court, after
four years of polishing the Attorney-General's scalp.
But we suspect that all alumni
are not doing as well as the
Chronicle indicates. If the editors were really honest about it,
ihe "What Alumni Are Doing"
Column would probably read
something  like  this:
Harry Badgered (BA '32) is
still with the clam counting division of ihe Provincial Game Department after twenty-two years
of devoted service. So far, he
has counted 9,327,758 clams, but
sees little hope of promotion,
since there are twelve other
clam-counters in the department,
who outrank him in seniority by
at least 2,000,000 clams.
Harry Slump, (Commerce '36)
just recently had his peddler's
license revoked lor selling spurious religious pictures, which
turned out lo be retouched newspaper photos of Premier Man-
ning.
Harry Tort, (Law '47) was recently promoted io Corporal in
ihe Corps of UBC Commissionaires. Fondly referred to by
students as "that little flunky,"
Hnrry led the Force last year, by
handing out 712,486 parking tickets to student motorists. Says
his superior, Buildings and
Grounds Superintendent Harry
Grizzled (Engineering '56): —
"He's doing so well now that
we're thinking of letting him
replace one of our stenographers
who's leaving to get married."

Pep Club Spurs
Sports Interest
By SUE ROSS
Twirling batons, rolling drums, cheering on the Bird games,
and coaxing Honey Bun to 'make the shore', UBC's Pep Club
is an integral part of Campus life.
Their purpose—to create or rouse enthusiasm to support
campus Athletics—remains an undefeatable one.
In 1953, concerned about the *—      ■-  •
lack of interest shown towards "The work of Pep Club is
Athletics, Student Council asked , something like that of Ubyssey
Don Jabour to gather up the \ writers," Pep Club President
struggling band, few majorettes j Melville Leckie said, "Its func-
and cheerleaders and form the  tion  is purely  as a service or«

took over publicizing of sports
events which Mamooks had previously attempted,
NEVER GIVE UP
Known as "the kids that never
give   up"   and   also   for   their
booster   beanies,   Bird   bumper
ganization."
SEXLESS CLUB
"We do not discriminate sexually" Pep Club said. They welcome anyone who is genuinely
interested in supporting Athlet*
ic  events.   Besides   their  enter-
banners, Bird buttons, and bal-  tainment  groups and an execu-

The play was scheduled to

Dorothy Somerset said the postponement was due to "conflicting programs both on and off
campus."

Discussed
Cost of tour i.s all inclusive:—
Return plane fare to Europe,
three meals a day, entertainment
on the continent, accommodation
in quality hotels, complete sightseeing programme, and an ex-
Qrass I perienced guide throughout this
fabulous tour of nine countries.
Tour No. 1 leaves Montreal on
June 17 and returns August 16;
Tour No. 2 leaves Montreal July
3 and returns September 7th.
There will be three special
NFCUS Charter flights from
Montreal to Europe via Mari-
times Central Airways and the
return cost is a low $300.
The reason for the inexpen-
siveness of the tours is that N.F.
loons, Pep Club publicizes basketball and football games, pro-'
vides entertainment at half-time, |
and organizes four or five rousing  pep  meets  per  year. '
Some of their stunts come from
other  Universities  such  as   the;
American college idea of Card
tricks. But Pep Club can claim
their ex-president Mike Jeffery I
j as originator of 'Snarl' cards.      j

i "If  we could  get  the Frosh  organized,"   suggested   Pep   Club
; secretary, Bugs Thompson, "and ,
we could overcome apathy, but •
tivc, Pep Club has a large general membership.
They also have Prof. (Clint)
Burhans as Hon. President, a
holder of UCC award for Athletics. Their Monday meetings
are squashed into a brightly
bannered hut room behind the
Brock. They do not practice
their stunts there.
Besides their endeavours to
promote Athletic prominence,
Pep Club hope to "make majorettes a primary part of campus life." But the majorettes
depend upon the now uniform-
less band. Until a School of Music is established on campus, both
these groups will continue to
struggle on their own.

deteat one of Council's many carefully-drawn up proposed
constitutional amendments. Newly-baptised AMS President

monotonous regularity. -- Photo bv Mark Underbill
General Meeting Thursday
passed 26 of a proposed 2!)
Constitutional amendments in a
long, sometimes interesting session.
Majority of the amendments
concerned clarifying the constitution or clearing away accumulated dead wood.
Only controversy arose over
paying a $100 honorarium to the
editor of the Totem, paying students for campus activties and
code amendment of the Council.
Engineer President Russ Fraser moved that the "Slipstick"
editor should receive a similar
honorarium to the Totem editor. Slipstick is the engineering
annual. Motion was narrowly
defeated. A number of students
I believed Eraser's motion was a
bit of redshirt drollery.
A Ubyssey sponsored motion
to clarify the status of Faculty
editions was defeated after past
Engineer president John MacDonald stated that the Engineers don't want any special favours." Motion proposed that all
but the Engineer's edition be
three pages and be written by
The Ubyssey staff.

Vetoes
Proposal
! Jazz Society members step-
i ped off the band stand and into
I the political arena Thursday
noon to defeat a Council amendment which would havi\
forbidden payment of talented
students for noon-hour performances.
Proposed by outgoing Treasurer, Al Thackray, the Constitutional Amendment stated that
no remuneration should be pro-
| vided for "any service rendered
by a student to his own club,
to to any other AMS subsidiary
1 organization."
DEMANDED PAYMENT
The amendment was introduced after various students, mostlv
Jazzsoccers, had demanded AMS
payment after performing at
noon-hour jazz concerts throughout the year.
The Thackray amendment was
designed to clarify AMS policy
on the matter.-A rider was attached, stating that the "no remuneration" provision would
not apply to events occurring
after six p.m. in the evening.
This was to exclude cases
where students played for evening dances.
Led by Jazzsoc pianist John
Gittens, the hipsters protested
that the measure, if approved,
would force students belonging
to the American Federation of
Musicians to play for free.
UNIONS A THREAT
The Union won't like this,
Gittens warned. "They might
rule that no union musician
could play at UBC," he said.
Thc proposed amendment j
would not only affect jazzmen,'
Gittens said, but also any students playing in the Vancouver
Symphony, which periodically
appears for noon-hour concerts
at UBC.
Supported verbally by Jazz-
soccers Jack Reynolds aiid Leon
Sharzer, the amendment was de-!
feated by a fairly wide margin.

Critic Finds "Twelfth Nighf A Comic Triumph
By BARRIE HALE
Enthusiastic, sustained applause was the sizeable audi*
ence's reaction to Player's Club's
modern dress production of
Shakespeare's "Twelfth Night,"
which opened its three night
run in the Auditorium last
night.
The applause was well warranted: "Twelfth Night" took on
new dimensions of charm in
the presentation that was as
funny and brisk as it was unique.
Certainly the airy, attractive
settings, the well - contrived
lighting, and the imaginative
costumes had much to do with
the success of the play, but
theatre depends for its life mainly upon the interpretation of
the script. In this regard,
"Twelfth Night" did not merely
stand on its feet; it strutted.
Director Ian Thorne seems to
have picked his cast as though
he helped Shakespeare write
the script for them. Aside from
some first-night nervousness,
there wasn't a painful performance in the bunch.
John Darling as Sir Andrew
Aguecheek, produced a masterful albeit sometimes inaudible,
comic performance, closely followed by Wayne Hubbel's moralistic Malvolio, Walter Shyn-
karyk's boozy Sir Toby Belch,
and Dave Hughe's shady Fabian.
Janice Beairstro's Viola was
subtle, witty, and, for want of
a more adequate word, wholly
charming.
"Twelfth Night" is on view
tonight and tomorrow night, and
is worth far more than the four
bits admission.

THE     UBYSSEY
PAGE  SEVEN
SPORTS EDITORS; KEN WIEBE, BRUCE ALLARDYCE
ADMINISTRATION   MUST
SUPPORT   ATHLETICS
The General Meeting yesterday revealed some astounding
facts about some members of the student body. That anyone
would propose the complete elimination of extra-curricular
sports, shows the absolute ignorance and narrow-mindedness of
these individuals, in failing to recognize the importance of these
sports and to understand what disastrous results would follow the elimination of sports.
Constant complaints are heard from students concerning
the lack of spirit at UBC. If all extra-mural sports were discontinued, I venture to say that student spirit would hit an all
time low. Inter-collegiate competition acts as a bond in uniting
students in one comon interest. Of course, winning teams would
help even more—and, we do not think that anyone, however
scornful he were about sports, would not feel some pride in
learning that some UBC team, HIS team, had beaten the University of California in some game.
However, according to our impressions, the majority of
students at the General Meeting were not favourably impressed
with the proposals of these individuals. In fact, the majority
realized that athletics would have to be financially assisted by
the students and were willing to grant an inci-ea.se of student
fees for athletics.
A report that very aptly covers athletic problems and
their solutions has been prepared by a committee chaired by
Stanley Beck. What strikes us as the most important part of
the report—the solution to the problem of financing athletics—
is stated in one of their recommendations:
'* . . . this committee feels that the Board of Governors
should match the student contribution to this important phase
of University education."
Another recommendation states: "That if the students raise
their athletic fee it be raised on the contingency that the Board
of Governors match the total student contribution to athletics
dollar for dollar within one year or else the student increase
would not be applied in the following years."
The report goes on to state the approximate yearly cost
of athletics to the administration ($5,000) as compared to the
cost to students ($31,700). It points out that athletic fees to
students at other Canadian Universities range from $13 at New
Brunswick to $15 at W. On r;o and McGill as comnared
to $3.20 for UBC students. (Toronto's fees are $5—the athletic
committee receives the rents from Varsity Stadium). As far
as administrational contributions to athletics, the report says:
"Practically every university administration in Canada contributes a great deal mure to athletics than does the UBC administration. . . . the administration assumes the responsibility for
the proper maintenance of the athletic department just a.s it
would for any other department ... In other case the administration helps out financially by assuming the athletic deficit each
year."
Three proposals for fee increases were brought before the
students at the General Meeting. The first one wa.s a straight
one-dollar grant to athletics; the second, a $2.50 increase with
students receiving a free A-card: third, a $3.50 increase with
publications getting the extra dollar.
We favor the one-dollar increase because, although it would
only partly solve athletic financial problems, it would pave the
way for contributions from the administration — if we, the
students, put enough pressure or.
Publications certainly deserve their 75c increase, and this
should be a separate proposal.
Free A-cards would not be too advantageous to athletics.
Ii would not induce people to come to the games and it would
actually be detrimental in that it would set a definite price on
ithletics which would be hard to alter later.
We propose: Give athletics one dollar per student now,
r.nd then force the administration to assume their responsibility
in supporting extra-mural athletics financially  and  otherwise.

When you make your plans

Intra-murals director Bob
Hindmarch has a really big
show lined up for the night's
entertainment. The card,
which includes from 16 to 20
bouts will last about two-and-

Admission is 50 cents for

Women
Compete
In Track
UBC athletics are always finding new ways for women to release their energies.
For the first time, nine girls
will represent UBC in a track-,
and-field meet against VOC
Meet will be held at 10.30 Satur-j
day morning.
Among the top contenders are
Heather Walker, Canadian high-;
jump representative at the Bii-|
tish Empire Games, and Pat
Powers, who captured third
place in the recent Canadian
Olympic trials hurdle event.
Miss Walker will be competing\
against Alice Whitty, Canada's!
representative in the high-jumping in the Olympics last fall.
Miss Powers will get her competition from Carol Griffiths, runner-up in the Olympic trials
hurdle event.
Betty Best, Deirdre Fitzgerald,
Marilyn McNab, Heather Bruce
and Judy Willingness will reprc-,
sent UBC in the relay and field,
events.
The femmes have been training daily under coach Peter Mullins. (So that's where you've
been hanging out lately, Mull-
sey).
Reps earned their berth by defeating Victoria Crimson Tide
14-6, March 2 and Birds walloped Victoria 26-10 last Saturday
to advance to the finals.
The stage is set for one of
the finest games of the year as
both teams are at full strength.
The experienced Reps are not
likely to use the spoiling tactics
which Varsity has encountered
in most of their opponents this
year, but will be attempting to
develop an attack of their own.
They have the two finest wingers in B.C. in Ex-Birds George
Puil and John Newton, but their
inside backs will have to get
the  ball  to them.       ,
VarsUy has the better centres
in Pete Tynan and Don Sloan,
and their strength at these two
positions may prove the difference. George Sainas, who is
marking Varsity's Ted Hunt at
fly-haif, will have to be on his
toes if he is to keep Hunt from
breaking through all afternoon.
After tomorrow's game. UBC
coach Albert Laithwaite, B.C.
Rugby Union president Bob
Spray and Rep coach Ken Banks
of Meralomas, will pick, on individual performances, the core
of the B.C. Rep side which will
meet Britain's famed Barbarians
here in May.
A squad composed of 30 men
representing UBC, Vancouver
and Victoria is expected to be
named Monday.
The   following   players   have

have been raised from the pre
sent $390.
Agriculture students will be
required to pay $250 yearly as
compared with the $167 they
have been paying up to now.
Household Science fees are also
increased to $250. Students who
are working towards a degree
of Bachelor of Education will
face an $85 increase in their
final two years, but will be unaffected in their junior years.
Dr. James recognized that
"this increase of tuition fees
will cause hardship in the case
of students whose financial resources are limited."
In order to alleviate the situation as much as possible it has
been decided that during each
of the next five years the appropriation from thc general
revenues of the University for
loans, bursaries and scholarships will be increased from
$30,000 to $100,000.
MUST BE OBTAINED
'Alter allowing for this added provision of $70,000 for student aid," he said, 'the increased income from fees will amount to about $350,000 a year—
approximately half of the additional money that is needed to
balance the budget. Additional
revenues amounting to at least
another $350,000, over and
above any government grants]
now in sight, must be obtained
if McGill University is to avoid|
a  deficit."
FACE SIMILAR INCREASES
Engineering, Law and Medical students face similar increases. Fees in Engineering
have been raised to $550 from
$466. Law and Medical students will have to pay roughly
$60 more next year than they
did this term. Law fees are up
to $450 and Faculty of Medicine have been raised to $650
per year.
REASONS TWOFOLD
Dr. James stated that the reasons for raising the tuition fees.
arc twofold. First, in view of
the high salaries being paid to
college-educated people by government and industry, the
Board of Governors has decided
to increase the salaries of full-
time members of the teaching
staff.
Thc new wage scale is identical to the one now in effect at
thc Universities of Alberta, British Columbia and Toronto. It
provides a minimum salary of
S3.500 for a Lecturer, $5,000
for an Assistant Professor,
Sli,500 for an Associate Professor and $8,000 for a Professor.
Moreover, the Principal also
slated, "Government grants
that have been promised are
utterly inadequate to close this
gap." This factor also contributed to the decision to raise the
fees.
