Salaries of UBC's faculty members are as much
as $2,100 a year below those being paid for the
same jobs at other Canadian universities.
The university ranks tenth in the country in the
salaries it pays and on the average pay is $900
■below the highest in Canada, Laval University.
These figures are contained in a report circulated by the UBC Faculty Association to faculty
members. The Ubyssey obtained the report Wednesday.
It shows that differences between what is paid
here and elsewhere is much more than $900 in
some classes of jobs.
Department heads at UBC, although ranked
second in Canada, receive salaries $2,100 below
the highest, University of Toronto.
Full professors at UBC rank seventh in the
nation and are $1,300 below the highest paid
profs, at University of Saskatchewan.
Associate profs rank twelfth and are $1,300 below the nation's highest, University of Montreal.
Assistant profs' salaries are eleventh and $1,100
below the highest, at Laval.
The report says an average salary increase of
more than $2,000 per faculty member is required
to bring UBC's salary structure into line with
salaries which will be being paid at other Canadian universities by next year.
It says a $3,000 per faculty member increase is
required to bring UBC up to the salaries that will
be paid by the University of Alberta next year.
•      •      •
The report reminds faculty members that the
declared policy of the board of governors is to
put salaries on a par with those paid at any other
Canadian university.
The figures contained in the document confirm
a report carried in The Ubyssey Feb. 16 about pay
raises being demanded by the profs.
The Ubyssey story also said that UBC's administration has countered with raises of about $800
per professor.
Present average salary of all classes of faculty
members at UBC is $9,900 a year. Average at
highest paid Laval is $10,800.
The Ubyssey also learned Wednesday that the
faculty association at its last meeting instructed
its executive to seek a meeting with the board of
The executive was told to impress on the president and Board of Governors the absolute necessity of increasing the salaries of academic staff at
the University.
A motion said that if the sum allocated to the
university in its 1965-66 operating budget is not
sufficient to cover the increase, the university
should ask for a higher provincial grant.
The Association also decided to ask the Board
of Governors to publicly reaffirm its intention to
make UBC a first rate university, to explain at
once by what means and over what period this
is to be achieved, and to ask the board to take
financial measures necessary to the accomplishment of this goal.
•'     •      •
"In the event that they (the board members) do
not now consider making UBC a first-rate university as their goal, that they state to the faculty
what their current plans for the university are,"
the motion says.
The prediction that a $3,000 increase will be
needed to give professors' salaries equal Alberta
is based on the knowledge that the University of

Profs start
battle Mac
Professors in the faculty of arts are in the middle of a
boiling feud with President John Macdonald over appointment of Dean Kaspar Naegele's successor.
Macdonald has told the fac
ulty members bluntly they
will have no say in the makeup of the selection committee
which will pick the new dean.
The professors, who have
been trying to get more say in
how the university is run, had
sought to elect four members
to a committee of 12.
But Macdonald, in a letter
circulated to the profs this
week, said the selection will
stand as it is — eight members, appointed by him.
Macdonald said he appreciated "the desire of members
of the faculty to participate in
advising me concerning the
appointment," and said he
would welcome advice from
But he made it clear the
profs would have no say in
appointing the selection committee.
Dean Kaspar Naegele was
selected    to    succeed    retired
dean S. N. F. Chant three
years ago on the basis of a
faculty committee recommendation.
The profs are also angry
because Macdonald flatly turned down two other requests.
The profs want a say in defining the new dean's duties;
they also want him to have a
fixed term of office, rather
than carrying on indefinitely
at the Board of Governors'
Some professors say Macdonald could have lost nothing by allowing four elected
members on a 12-man selection committee.
They feel that if they are
included in the selection process, they will then be more
confident in the man chosen
and would also be unable to
complain to Macdonald about
the new man, since they
helped appoint him.
'Little reason to stay
These professors say morale
has been ebbing badly.
Troubles are compounded
by the current financial dilemma, in which average UBC
salaries have dipped to as low
as tenth best in Canada, and
profs how have no say in how
pay raises are assessed and
allocated, or in appointing the
men who do the assessing and
One professor told The
Ubyssey this week the only
reason he was staying at UBC
was because his family liked
it here, and because of his colleagues in the faculty.
"If two or three of them
left, I'd have no reason to stay
here," he said.
Macdonald has told the Faculty Association that pay
raises will be allocated strictly
according to merit.
But some professors say this
policy has not been adhered
to, and that morale has been
wrecked in some departments
by "salary blackmail."
This occurs when a professor, who is expecting a raise
of the same amount as others
of his rank, goes to his dean
and demands more "because
I've got an offer of more from
another university."
In several cases, this kind
of raise has been granted, the
profs say.
The faculty has also complained that UBC's salary
structure is being wrecked because the administration is
forced to hire new profs at
salaries much higher than
present profs of the same rank
are getting.
The only way top young
professors can be lured here
is to offer them salaries competitive with the top schools
in Canada — and regular UBC
salaries are nowhere near
that. Page 2

profs up
by $3,000
(Continued from Page 1)
Alberta has a large raise scheduled the report said.
Last year UBC profs received $1,000 less than those at
Alberta; this year $1,600 less.
The announced increase for
next year for Alberta is $1,400,
putting profs there a total of
$3,000 ahead of UBC.
The report speculates that
salaries at other universities
will go up at least $1,000 as a
result of the Alberta increase.
(Saskatchewan has already
announced increases equal to
The report also compares
UBC salaries with salaries in
the U.S.
It says that 32 per cent of
professors, 23 per cent of associate profs and 40 per cent
of assistant profs get higher
salaries than people in the
same categories at UBC.
Here is the way the universities of Canada line up in order
of average salaries paid to all
classes of faculty members:

funeral set

chairman of the UBC board of
governors George Cunningham will be held Monday in

p.m. at St. Andrew's Wesley
Church, Nelson and Burrard,

Acting chairman of the
board of governors is Mr. Justice N. T. Nemetz.
AMS president Roger McAfee told student council he
expected most of the student
leaders would attend the funeral.
Student council wants to
take World University Service
Committee off their $1 a head
non-discretionary grant.
Council decided Monday
night to recommend the move
to the March 18 general meeting.
Council also decided to
allow WUSC to conduct a can-
rattling-type campaign on
campus to raise money for
their International Program of
The AMS will take over
financing WUSC's exchange
scholarship program, which
brings students from Japan,
Spain, Germany, and the
USSR to UBC each year.
WUSC will apply for a discretionary grant each year for
general and national office expenses.
Prompting for the move
came from the WUS committee itself, who said they feel
development is being stifled
by a fixed grant and that not
enough effort is being spent
publicizing IPA on campus.
"A well - organized, active
campaign will be the vehicle
to get WUSC's international
program over t o students,"
said committe chairman Andy
"Through it we will probably be able to raise more
money for IPA than we can
give them now from our fixed
grant from the AMS.
"But it will take a few years
for our campaign to get established to the extent of the
University of Toronto's —
where they raised $12,000 last
With this in mind council
voted to give WUSC $1 per
student discretionary next
year if their motion to come
off non-discretionary passed.
But they also decided to reduce the amount of the grant
by the amount the campaign
raises next year, up to a minimum of $4,000.
WUSC information officer
Terry Creighton said Wednesday the committee had a meeting Tuesday night and would
attempt to get this motion
"We think it unfair to take
such a large amount of the
money we will raise — it is
unlikely that in the first year
we will raise more than
$4,000, so in effect we are
raising money for the AMS,"
said Creighton.
"What we decided to ask
for was for the AMS to give
us a $2,000 grant for IPA and
add that to the money from
the campaign.
"If we can raise $4,600
there, we will meet the national goal of 40 cents per student planned next year by the
national office.
"Overall, we will be asking
the AMS for less next year
than we did last — scholarships will total $9,700, general
and national office expenses
$2,300, IPA $2,000, for a total
of $14,000 — $1,000 less than
this year.
"The only other thing we
are asking for is permission
to conduct a campaign to get
money directly  from the students for IPA."
Creighton said IPA is an
international program developed by WUS's international
office to help universities in
underdeveloped countries get
on their feet.
SPENT  $400,000
"Last year WUS spent
$400,000 in this area.
"We feel a local campaign
for funds will bring students
in more direct contact with
our program.
Creighton said the campaign week, tentatively scheduled for October, would feature speeches, stunts, a n d
special events.
"We feel education, over
and above money, is to be
our main objective in promoting this week.
"But of course generous
donations would also help in
a big way."

An old devil
That old devil money is shaking up UBC again.
This time it's the professors screaming louder than
usual about the university's sub-standard pay scales.
How can UBC hope to develop into the first-class
institution envisioned by the president and the Board
of Governors without paying sufficient wages to keep
top profs?
The scenery and living conditions may be better
than in Saskatchewan, but that extra $1,300 can warm
up many a bleak prairie winter for a professor.
After the inevitable series of arguments as to who
is short-changing UBC the same tired, old villain pops
You guessed it, the Social Credit government of the
province of British Columbia.
The Socreds have generously allocated $18.5 million
to be split between the province's three universities.
They have generously established (Tuesday) a
Grants Commission to decide how said $18.5 million
should be split up.
Though the Grants Commission is welcomed as a
logical step toward distribution of funds, the timing is
The Provincial Universities Act provided for the
commission in 1963.
Now, shortly before the present sitting of the legislature ends, we have our commission.
No embarrassing questions will be forthcoming from
the floor because the Grants Commission probably won't
have decided how to split up the money before the end
of the session.
In future will the Grants Commission be able to
criticize the amount of money it will be given to play
Last year the University of Alberta (Edmonton and
Calgary) managed to get an operating grant of $15.1
million from the Alberta Socreds. UBC received just
less than $10 million, and yet has about 5,000 more
This year Saskatchewan received $9.3 million; UBC
is almost twice as large as Saskatchewan.
And Ontario's angel
Toronto, only slightly larger than UBC, gets $23
million this year. This, from a government in Ontario
that must supply 15 universities instead of merely three.
Of course the Ontario government isn't sweetness
and light as far as all universities are concerned.
Queens university president J. A. Corry said this
year his university will operate at a deficit because the
$4.8 million operating grant isn't enough.
"We are determined to maintain faculty salaries and
support at a level that will enable us to retain our
present staff and to attract additional teachers we shall
need to meet our committments."
A novel, if dangerous idea. (UBC administration
Queens is fifth highest in the nation for average
salaries paid to profs.
UBC, living in the dynamic society, is a sorry tenth
in danger of slipping further.
The faculty's requests for pay-hikes must be met
by the administration.
The administration must ensure that the government
supply the cash for the faculty demands.

they probably won't complain if assured of better
D and D arts report
looks at discipline
We have not included courses offered by the Departments of Religious Studies, Asian Studies, and Slavonic
Studies, except those in foreign languages.
We  have  also  omitted  the
courses in Classical Studies
in which students can at present enrol in their second
year. Our decision to emphasize disciplines in the second
year precludes the inclusion
of the courses offered by
these  departments.
Here are excerpts from
the chapter concerning
second year education in
the Discipline and Discovery report issued to faculty Tuesday.
An acceptable definition of
a discipline, especially in the
humanities and social sciences, is extremely difficult'
to formulate, but we believe
that a discipline, to qualify
as an integral part of this
Faculty, must possess, as a
minimum requirement, recognized techniques of investigation and a roughly identifiable body of ideas concerned with a particular aspect of human life. An area
of study that does not possess all of these is not a discipline.
The exclusion of these
courses from the second year
is not intended as a denial of
the value of interdisciplinary
studies; that value is recognized in the programs proposed for both the first year

We believe, however, that
for the purposes of undergraduate education, and in a
Faculty where the dominant
pattern of departmental or-

there are strong arguments
for an emphasis on disciplines as the primary vehicles of learning.

The fact that the important interdisciplinary "breakthroughs" are being made by
scholars who achieved mastery of one discipline and subsequently became knowledgeable in other areas underlines the intellectual and pedagogical soundness of this approach. Much more remains
to be said on this subject, and
we suggest that it be considered further by the Faculty.

Foreign paranoia
Editor, The Ubyssey:
The recent statements by
two foreign students in your
story "Foreign Students Slam
IH Racism" (Ubyssey March
9) are ■worthy of some comment.
1. The attitude of Kari and
Adija typify somewhat the
paranoia which exists in the
ranks of many foreign students on this campus and for
that matter around the world.
On one hand friendly gestures by Canadians are regarded with suspicion and denounced as "patronizing". On
the other hand any reluctance toward an interest in
foreign students is branded
by the latter as discrimination.
2. Kari and Aidja state:
". . . IH stresses national
characteristics . . .' ' Who
does? — IH or the people
who gather there? Their
statements contain sufficient
ambiguity to keep that question unanswered. I submit
here that any national, racial
or ethnic "cloisterism" is the
result of the foreign students'
attitude and actions, not the
"home grown" variety.
3. Kari and Adija accuse
IH of fostering a sanctuary
for the homeless. They resent the term homeless. If a
foreign student, newly arrived in Canada, without relatives and friends, miles from
his homeland, looking for
companionship among his
own kind, cannot be defined
as "homeless", then I am at a
loss to describe him.
4. Receiving h o s p i tality
and kindness is a more difficult task than giving it; it
requires both graciousness
and humility — two rare
virtues, not prevelant in the
ranks of some foreign students at this university.

Parliaments mixed up
The model parliament at
the University of Alberta, Edmonton, will be centered on
the theme of national unity.
Frivolous legislation tends
to confirm the observation
one Bishop's University student made of model parliaments this year.
University legislatures mix
the serious with the ridiculous in an attempt to pattern
themselves on the House of
Commons in Ottawa.
A McGill MP proposed that
a native Canadian monarch be
chosen each day by lottery to
"realize the Canadian dream
of Queen-for-a-day."
At Bishop's, an NDP bill to
auction all of Canada except
British Columbia and distribute the profits to remaining
residents found little support.
A resolution to introduce
draft beer into dining halls,
however, passed unanimously.
Two of the splinter party
platforms this year were
"nationalism without nationalization" (U of A's Confederation Party), a native Canadian monarchy and the establishment of French as a
language of parliamentary debate in all 10 provinces (Mc-
Gill's Congress Towards Canadian Maturity).

Conclusion of
in Tuesday's Ubyssey
At Memorial University,
Newfoundland, all campus
political parties are splinter
The most recent, the Party
of the National Conscience,
may propose an economic and
political union of the Atlantic
provinces during model parliament elections later this
In a recent policy statement
a party spokesman labelled
"A stable party which does
not attempt to straddle the
political gulfs which separate
old-fashioned national ism
with extreme socialism."
Another Memorial party,
the Newfoundland Nationalists, advocate political independence for Newfoundland and closer ties between
Newfoundland and Quebec.
At least two university Conservative clubs pointedly ignored   national   party   leader
UBC Model Parliament
John  Diefenbaker during election campaigns this year.
At Mount Allison University, the election was centered
on federal issues.
The Conservative club, conducting a Who's Diefenbaker
campaign, soundly defeated
the Liberals with a Look-to-
Ottawa platform, winning 19
of 35 seats and giving the
Conservatives their first majority victory on Canadian
campuses in two years.
At Loyola, Conservatives
rebelled against Diefenbaker
as national leader and merged
with the Canadian National
Reform Movement in a move
described by Loyola Conservative leaders as an attempt to
rid the party of a dangerous
•    •    •
The coalition, the Independent Democratic Party, ran a
poor second to the Liberals.
At UBC the Conservative party made a surprising
rapprochement with the Creditistes.
Leaders of the two clubs
explained they had merged
"to present the honest face of
Quebec—not the corrupt one
under Liberal representation." The combined ticket
ran third to the Liberals and
New Democrats.
Again this year, some students rejected old-line parties
to form their own political
groups or to support those
created in former years.
At most universities, student-created splinter parties
have had little success—
though in several cases, they
joined old-line parties to form
coalition governments.
Behind the rise and fall of
parliamentary debate, the perennial rumble of discontent
with model parliaments has
swelled to new heights this

The withdrawal of the New
Democratic Party rendered a
death blow to the University
of Toronto's model parliament
last fall.
Labelling model parliament
a futile game which has little,
if any effect on real problems.
U of T's New Democrats decided to devote their energies
to areas of direct student action.
Later the New Democrats
proposed an alternative to
model parliament—a Student
Parliament in which political
clubs could deal with student
action on social and political
• • •
Queen's University also killed its model parliament last
fall after the Conservative
and New Democratic parties
bowed out of the election
Recent charges of student
apathy toward model parliaments seem to be borne out
by returns at the 18 universities in which model parliament elections have been held
this year.
On several campuses, less
than a third of the student electorate visited the polls.

Editor, Scott Mclntyre.
Other members of Totem
staff expressed their confidence in Tyrrell's organizational
ability and business sense.
Tyrrell plans to maintain the
general format of this year's
Totem, specializing in small
faculty photo-essays such as
Oceanography, the focus for

"I believe this book, Totem

year books ever produced in
Canada," Tyrrell said.
"The quality of the color reproductions and the professional layout combined with consistency in design and print
quality make it excellent."

Chant to head
finance board
The last major recommendation of the first Macdonald
Report was implemented Tuesday.
Minister Leslie
Peterson announced in the B.C.
Legislature an advisory board
on university finance has been
set up
Chairman of the board is
Dean S. N. F. Chant of UBC.
Dean Neil Perry will represent UBC, and publicity chairman of the 3-universities fund
Alan Eyre has been appointed
by Simon Fraser.
Victoria College has not yet
named  their  representative.
Peterson appointed chartered
accountant Harold Watson,
former UBC treasurer Ralph
Bagshaw, and B.C. education
department comptroller Edwin
Espley to represent the government.
UBC director of information
services Ralph Daly said Wednesday:
"The basic framework of
the Macdonald Report is now
in  place.
"The board is now studying
how to apportion the $18.5
million the government will
provide in operating grants for
next year."
The Macdonald Report recommended the establishment
of such a Grants Commission
in January, 1963.
In March, 1963, the Universities   Act   was   ammended   to
allow the Minister of Education
to establish such a board.
The act provided for an advisory board to make recommendations to the Minister.
The final decisions regarding the division of grants remains with the government.
Other major recommendations of the report which have
been adopted include:
• elevation of  Victoria   College to   university status,
• establishment    o f     Simon
Fraser Academy,
• a  junior college   for Vancouver,
• an Academic Commission.
Macdonald   also   called   for
the abolishment of grade 13.
On Tuesday, Education Minister Peterson told the Legislature he will introduce a bill
to eliminate grade 13.
