Array Kimball denied tenure
Assistant psychology professor
Meredith Kimball was denied
tenure before Christmas because
she has not published articles in
appropriate scholarly journals, a
source within the department said.
The source, who wished to
remain unidentified, said Kimball
is now appealing the decision
through the faculty association's
personnel service committee.
Kimball said Monday she does
not want to comment on the issue.
The source, however, said
Kimball wants, to maintain a low
profile because she feels publicity
will harm appeal proceedings.
Kimball, a developmental
psychologist, is Faculty
Association president and recently
led an unsuccessful drive toward
faculty unionization.
She was also active in organizing
and currently teaches in an interdisciplinary women's studies
She has published eight or nine
articles during the last year, including an article dealing with the
psychology of women and success
in the book Women in Canada.
Psychology department head
Peter Suedfeld said Monday he
didn't know Kimball had been
denied tenure.
Suedfeld said he assumes the
criteria for granting tenure to be
excellent performance in teaching,
research and service to the
However, administration
president-designate Doug Kenny
said Monday regulations govern
the composition of committees
which make tenure decisions and
criteria for tenure and are clearly
outlined in the faculty handbook.
Tenure recommendations
originate from a departmental
committee composed of everyone
who has tenure within the
department, said Kenny, a
psychology prof., former department head and arts dean.
Suedfeld is a full professor in the
psychology department.
When Kenny .was told Suedfeld
had denied knowing where Kim
ball's case stands, he said: "I
won't comment on that."
"At the point when it comes from
the department it is only a
recommendation," he said.
Kenny said the department's
recommendation is then considered   by   the   dean's   tenure
committee within the concerned
"They review all cases — both
recommended positive tenure and-
recommended denial of tenure,"
Kenny said.

Grant request up; why?
UBC's administration wants the
provincial government to increase
the university's annual operating
grant by 33 per cent and to more
than double its capital grant next
year, but won't say what it "wants
the extra money for.
UBC bursar and deputy
president William White said
Monday that details about the
grant increase requests, made last
fall at a secret meeting of the B.C.
Universities Council, won't be
made public unless they are
released    in    the    provincial

Murder proceedings a 'nightmare'
"I feel now that if I want to go out
alone, I can. I don't have to have a
witness with me all the time."
That's how Mike"" Milko, marine
biology 3, feels now that a stay of
proceedings has been ordered on
the charge of murder that has hung
over him for six months.
Milko was charged Sept. 20 with
murdering a 24-year-old hitchhiker, Lynda Marlene Dueck of
Sooke, whose body was found Sept.
17 in a ditch beside the 401 freeway
near Abbotsford.
After six months of preliminary
hearings, the Matsqui prosecutor
decided Friday to enter the stay.
He would only say it was entered
because "statements involved in
the court proceedings were not as
Milko's legal aid society lawyer,
Ian   Donald,    said    a    stay    of
proceedings means a case c^n be
reopened at the prosecutor's
discretion, but "effectively it
means that's the end of the case."
"It's one of the ways a court
disposes of a case it doesn't have
faith in," he said.
Milko told The Ubyssey he feels
"greatly relieved" that his
"nightmare" as a murder suspect,
including seven days of imprisonment, is over.
Milko said he never went out
alone for more than half an hour
just in case some new criminal
suspicion suddenly centred on him.
He didn't do it on his lawyer's
advice — "I just thought it best
Mike said he still doesn't know
how RCMP connected him with the
murder. A ban imposed by the
judge on releasing any evidence
from   the   preliminary   hearings
meant Milko could not discuss' the
particulars of the case.
However, he and Donald said the
Crown never established how
Dueck died. Donald said the body,
which had been in a partially-filled
ditch for two weeks in hot weather
before it was found, was too
decomposed to determine cause of
Milko said the first he knew that
Dueck was dead was Sept. 18 when
a UBC detachment RCMP officer
knocked on his door in Place
Vanier residence.
The officer took Milko to the UBC
RCMP office for questioning, then
to the Vancouver office at Thirty-
third and Heather and finally to the
Abbotsford detachment where he
spent the night in a jail cell.
His lawyer was then contacted.
"I was just too shocked to think
about what I should do," he said. "I
felt, what's going on?"-.
The next day he was taken back
to Vancouver for a voluntary
polygraph (lie detector) test, then
returned to Abbotsford where he
was charged with manslaughter.
"I signed out of the polygraph
half way through because I didn't
like the way the guy was asking
questions," Milko said. "He was
getting pretty hyper in his
questioning and he's supposed to
be keeping me calm."
The morning of the third day, a
Friday, he appeared in court
where the charge had been raised
to murder punishable by life imprisonment. Then it was back to

jail). The food was terrible when I

legislature or the UBC board of
governors approves their release.
The universities council has
consolidated UBC's requests with
those from Simon Fraser
University and the University of
Victoria and sent its own recommendations to Victoria.
The provincial government will
decide in a few weeks how much
money is to be granted to the
universities for the 1975-1976
academic year.
White said UBC wants its
operating grant to be increased to
$99.5 million from $74 million and
its capital grant increased to $18
million from $8 million, for a total
of $117.5 million next year.
White declined to offer a breakdown of the UBC increase
requests, even though his counterpart at SFU said "figures of this
nature are public" and provided a
partial estimate of reasons for the
George Stuart, SFU administrative vice-president, said

His action against the council
stems from a meeting held Friday
which he claims was illegal
because according to the constitution a meeting must be announced 10 days in advance. He
alleges this one was not.
Tichler also claims the meeting
didn't have the necessary quorum
of 16.
He said the grad class council
claims that decisions made are
representative of the entire
graduating class. "But the last
three meetings haven't even met
the quorum. How can they claim
they are representing Everyone?"
he said.
"I'm taking court action because
I don't like to see certain people get
so much, and others none."

student funds is unfair to "ttie quiet

in the cell all day. If you want a
cigarette you have to wait around
'til the guard brings  a match,"
Milko said.
He stayed in the 'Abbotsford jail
until Monday when he was transferred to the Lower Mainland
Regional Correctional Centre,
formerly Oakalla.
There he spent his time walking
around the exercise yard for two
two-hour periods during the day
talking to other prisoners, jailed
mainly for minor offenses. In both
jails he had a cell to himself.
"I had fairly good treatment
from the guards," Milko said.
"They're just walking around —
they don't talk to you."
The next day Milko was returned
to Abbotsford pending his bail
application the following day. Bail
was set at $10,000, his parents
arranged it and Milko was
"I'm not sure how they did it but
they raised it somehow. I think
they put up the deed to their land."
Milko said he often went into fits
of depression during his incarceration. "I was just thinking
how this is going to mess up my life
and how long is it going to drag on?
"I was going pretty strange at
times. That's how the depression
and that started. Like, what's
going on?"
At times he imagined himself
spending years in jail, "but my
lawyers took that out of my mind
when they said they (the Crown)
didn't have that strong a case."
Milko's week in jail also turned
him on to prison reform. "I have
very good opinions, for it," he said.
"My feelings are that you're just
getting people mad at society for
putting them in a place like that."
Milko also said he didn't feel
fairly treated by the legal system.
"I don't hold it against them
(police and prosecutors) but I don't
think it was all that fair to me."
He said the prosecutor holds the
key to whether a case is tried or

Tichler said he has several
solutions of his own on how the
problem of allocation of funds Can
be relieved.
He suggests giving the fee
directly to the undergraduate
societies, providing each society
could ensure that only graduating
students organize the programs
and co-ordinate the gifts. This
would provide all students with a
vote on social programs and gift
selections, he said.
He also proposed that a
referendum be held asking the
board of governors to reduce the
fee to 50 cents per person.
"This could provide for a social
affair and a token of appreciation.
The less money seen in the central
kitty, the fewer wolves at the
door," he said.
Tichler said the only other fair —
and easiest — solution would be to
change the current constitution to
read that all decisions for funding
be put on a mail ballot.
He said he thinks it's either that
or total cancellation of any kind of
subsidization for social events.
"The grad class council could
just as easily plan a break-evan
"The price of tickets would be
cost/expected turnout. It is
amazing that of all the possible
referenda that could have been
proposed at Friday's meeting,
none of these was chosen.
"It's going to be unfortunate if
the upcoming referendum does not
include the words:
a)  . . .    automatically
refunded to all faculties, but
only  when   all   the   faculties
have elected their grad class
b. If   the   above  conditions
are not met all the money will
be distributed to gifts."
Tichler said "it wilj also be
unfortunate if it is not a mail
ballot; for the above reasons.
"How representative can an
elected council claim to be if it
doesn't produce a democratic
referendum but, instead, produces
a possible precedent that will
continue padding practices for the

crease to $8 million from $1
million. Thirty five per cent of the
increase will go for a library addition, he said.
Stuart said he sees nothing
wrong with providing the press
with explanations and breakdowns
of the rough estimates if reporters
request the information.
He said in general about 80 per
cent of the operating budget increase is intended to accommodate
wage increases caused by faculty
and staff salary increase demands
and a 14 per cent enrolment increase.
Stuart said besides wage increases the university is projecting
a 20 per cent increase in the cost of
books, 35 to 40 per cent for paper
and a cleaning bill increase of
about 40 per cent.

because he wants to go on an ego
trip — should decide if it should go
to court."
Milko said his friends and family
backed him up all the way. "Most
of the reactions I got from friends
was, I couldn't do it."
Some people less close might
make remarks, but "if they said
things I wouldn't take notice of it."
Milko said that while his
depression was strong during his
time in jail, it seems very distant
now. "After it was all over, it felt
like it never happened. If it was a
nightmare, it was all over with."

University of Lethbridge will soon

universities in allowing open
meetings of their board of
The board reached this decision
Dec. 12 after several weeks of
discussion on the campus. While
students had pressed for open
meetings in this time, the idea had
received strong opposition from
some faculty members.
One professor told an open forum
that open board meetings would
"allow the university scholars'
minds to be poisoned by accountability" and "would allow
barbarian influences to determine
the board's decisions."
But the board has reasons for
letting the barbarians through the
"One of the main reasons for the
board's decision," said Lola
Lange, senate member of the
board, "was to try to provide a line
of communication from the board
to inter-university facilities.
Previously students were uncertain of the board's proceedings
when the closed meetings were
"The open board meetings may
not necessarily improve communication if only a few people
attend," said Lange.
"In addition a free flow of
discussion between board members may be hampered with a
possible increased work load to
organize the public meetings.
Gage both said in interviews that it
is "inappropriate" to give out
figures until they are sent to
Victoria and the government
releases them. However the
government is not required to
release details of budget requests
and they therefore may remain
permanently secret.
Both universities council
chairman William Armstrong and
education minister Eileen Dailly
have said on several occasions
they won't make figures public
except as a packajged request to

operating grant to be increased to
$27 million from $19^2 million, its-
capital grant to go to $5.5 million
from $2 million, for a total of $32.5
million. He could not be reached

Oil research '10 years too late'
Environmental research in the
Alberta tar sands should have
begun 10 to 15 years ago, an Alberta
government environmental
researcher said Monday.
And even though a 10-year, $40 to
$50million research program is just
getting under way, S. B. Smith said
there is no way of knowing how
much environmental damage will
occur and how much of it will, if it
can be, repaired.
"You can only go in good faith,"
Smith told students at a noon hour
lecture. "It is impossible to predict
what the damages will be."
Smith said research his group and
Environment Canada are doing is
for "information only" and not for
But, he said, the oil sands
development is "not likely to approximate" environmental controls
already spelled out under current
legislation unless  considerably
more money is spent on environmental research.
"You might as well be pragmatic
about this," he said. "There is no
sense in beating your head against
the wall and saying maybe this (oil
sands development) shouldn't have
been done. I can't say whether it
should have been done."
Smith said the law requires that
any land disturbed by the project
must be restored to a state of
"biological productivity."
"That's   a   matter   of   political
enforcement," he said. "I'm not a
politician, I'm a scientist. The law
is the law and until the political
decision is made not to enforce it,
I'm assuming it will be."
However, Smith said he is "not
happy" with existing clean air
controls. He said oil sand operations
will be dumping up to 400,000 tons
per year of sulphur dioxide into the
"Both Syncrude and the Great
Canadian Oil Sands Co. have
government approval and as such
you may say that's the law," he
said. "I don't believe it.
"I'm not willing to take a
negative point of view," he said.
"But we should have started 10 or 15
years ago (with environmental
During a slide presentation,
Smith showed a picture of a portion
of the Beaver River, a "fairly
important tributary of the
Athabasca River," that will be
"totally destroyed and relocated."
In addition, he showed a picture
of the proposed site for the Syncrude operation's tailing pond that
will total an area of 11 square miles.
The GCOS Co. currently has a
tailing pond consisting of a square
mile of a diked-off portion of the
Athabasca River.
This pond will be full in three
years, he said. It is currently diked
300 feet above the river and the
company has applied to raise the
dike another 100 feet.
He said there are an additional

"We have to organize on behalf of

Presumably, he said, these people
are the consumers of gas and oil.
Smith said most of the environmental research will have to
be done by consultants because the
two Alberta universities "don't
have enough people to satisfy the
demand for an environmental

environmental research necessary
leaked out, 20 new environmental
consulting firms sprang up in
Edmonton in one week alone.

require the expenditure of about $1
million before it even gets into the
He also said "it hasn't been
decided yet" who will pick up the
$40 million to $50 million tab for the
research project.
When asked if the oil industry has
made any firm commitment to pay
research costs, Smith said there has
been  "no  definite   commitment."
NUS tries to get reps
in closed aid meets
OTTAWA (CUP) — The National Union of Students is trying to get
student representatives into closed meetings of a federal-provincial task
force into student aid, but a task force co-chairman says students won't
get into the meeting this Thursday.
Co-chairman R. J. LaChappelle said student representation on the task
force, which has met privately since last June to discuss a possible
revamping of student financial aid programs, is a "touchy political
question" and will have to be referred to provincial as well as federal
government officials.
However he said any province can choose to send student representatives to the meetings and these students would be allowed to attend even
if other provincial or federal representatives objected.
The task force contains representatives from the National Council of
Education Ministers and federal Secretary of State's department and is
to report on possible restructuring of financial aid programs by this
NUS sent a letter asking for representation to LaChappelle Feb. 3
shortly after it discovered the task force had been meeting secretly for
several months.
LaChappelle said he doubts whether the task force will have time to
hear representations from NUS before it completes its report.
He said he was sure that students "would be consulted some day" but
said there are no current plans in that direction.

rules shame
I would like to express my anger
and sorrow concerning the housing
administration's new policies as
reported in Thursday's edition.
Four years ago it was my
pleasure to live in Sherwood Lett
house in Place Vanier. In that year
Place Vanier and her sister
residences Fort Camp and Totem
Park were alive with a spirit
typified by that of Sherwood Lett.
The house was an odd assortment
of students of all ages and
backgrounds, who as the year
progressed, became bound together
in a true sense of brotherhood.
Our innovative house council,
backed fully by the house members,
was responsible for a number of
activities which enriched the lives
of all the students residing in Place
Our raids, pranks and jokes were
generally in good taste and the close
ties which existed between the don,

to a large extent responsible for
this. We were a long way from being
angels, but we certainly not without
To a freshman, like myself, it was
a true learning experience; I
learned mature work habits, a
respect for others and above all how

I also learned how to pick locks,
brew beer, fix I.D. and all sorts of
other interesting things which have
since served me well.
Reading the article in Thursday's
Ubyssey about housings' future
system of tightening controls and
plans to drop the res fellowships has
distressed me greatly.

That decision is patently ridiculous.
Unfortunately, it's also rather predictable.
Let's take a brief look at the
tenure-granting system in general.
Promotion and tenure committees are
composed of already-tenured profs. Those
profs of course received their promotions
from other professors tenured before them.
That means the people already on top of
the old campus pecking order are responsible
for those joing them there. They can
therefore retain their own high positions by
ensuring the promotion of only those
underlings who aren't likely to foment
revolution within each particular

studies courses leave one less prof in the
parent department and parochial parent
departments cannot see beyond their own
This means they'd rather have profs
working in their own departments than
working on interdisciplinary courses, no
matter how worthy these interdisciplinary
courses might be.
Interdisciplinary courses bring no credit
to other department members through the
cumulative effect of having continuous
articles published in important, say,
psychology journals and thus having a
departmental reputation built.
Departments like to have nice reputations.
This means the professors in that
department will be well-respected, because
they come from such "discriminating"
And point number three: where has
Kimball been publishing? Women In
Canada? Oh lord (they cry in keening
despair) what on earth is that? People are
going to think the department is, uh, radical.
Let's boot the bitch out fast.
And those three points add up to a no-no
of a Meredith Kimball for her seniors. But a
yes-yes (is there such a word?) for her
students. <
Therefore, it's time for the shit to fly.
And how? Well, wait with baited breath.
We'll examine it further Thursday.
though the housing administration
pays lip service to this credo, they
do not back their words with any
concrete efforts to enrich the lives
of students.
At a time when the housing administration voices concern about
the responsibility of the students
and their self-control, especially in
relation to inter-house raids, they
are discussing the removal- of the
mature, responsible influence of the
res fellows from residences
inhabited more and more every
year by frosh.
All that a tighter readmission
policy will accomplish is to
eliminate from res life all the
people who make it spark.
Housing wants nothing to do with
the sort of active students who got
this university off the ground back
in the '20s.
Instead, their idea of Utopia is a
bunch of corpses sitting in their
rooms, headphones on, studying
and not complaining as food gets
worse and rent goes up and the
quality of life deteriorates.
Out of touch with reality and
surrounded by people who will not
criticize housing's policies openly,
this being a direct reference to
those gutless dons in Thursday's
paper who did not want their names
published. Les Rohringer seems
bent on running residences like a
retirement village for old physical
plant workers.
For the past three years I have
watched housing's policies wear
away at the residence lifestyle. This
year, sadly, I will graduate and
leave UBC. With me I will take
many fine memories and when I
think about all the students yet to
come into residences who might
miss out on even a bit of the fun I've
had or the knowledge I've gained, I
think it's a damned shame.

Student Unity has succeeded in
getting itself a firm majority of
seats on the students' council and
may, perhaps, consider itself to
have a ticket to pass any amendments, etc., to the Alma Mater
Society constitution desired by the
members of the slate.
However, I for one feel this slate
has already proved itself incompetent to govern over a sup
posedly responsible, both socially
and mentally, community. On the
night of Feb. 5, only a few short
hours after they had been elected,
the members of the Student Unity
slate were present in the Pit
presenting an act of political suicide
in two parts.
First, they alienated a large
majority, if not all of the students
present, by chanting a modified
Engineer's song:
We are, we are, we are the Unity,
We control, we control, we control
the University."

"Your honor, your honor," began counsel on the defense Gary Coull.
"My client has been maliciously slandered and libelled not to say defamed
and what's more I want a writ." "Coull down young fella," answered the
Honorable (heh-heh) Kini McDonald. "Your counsel's name is already writ
in water."
"But we just want to make it above board, your honor," whimpered
lapdog for the defense Doug Rushton. "That reminds me of the time the
defense got on board after that party," chorused chief slanderers Berton
Woodward and Lesley Krueger. "And I've got some pretty revealing, well
just revealing, pictures," added secondhand libeller Marise Savaria. Sued
Vohanka proceeded to whisper inflammatory and defamatory nothings
into court reporter Mark Buckshon's ear on the alert.
"Order in the court," said McDonald sternly as she pounded the gavel.
"Time is flying with terrifying speed." But the jury of 350 carrion vultures
just looked on, well, just looked, disgusting. Jury foreman Barry Jensen
demanded double time for jury duty. And Stu Lyster, Tom Barnes and
Carl Vesterback wrote notes to themselves on the nearest filing cabinet.
Joyce Jackman sat in the corner snorting blissfully as Debbie Barron
picked her nose. Court jester Jan O'Brien gleefully square-danced to the
rhythm of Greg Strong's snoring. All the while, court artist Woody drew
mug shots of Robert Diotte and Sheila Bannerman.
"Your honor, your honor," pleaded innocent bystander and man of the
street Marcus Gee, "This is a mockery of justice."

Secondly, the (members of
Student Unity present in the Pit)
insulted the members of the civil

"Say hello to the assholes — hello

I feel a brief criticism of their
actions is needed. First, Student
Unity may consider itself the
university if the members so
desire, in which case I suggest they
move the university to the middle
of the Strait of Georgia.
Secondly, if Student Unity truly
controls the university, I sincerely
hope they can display more control

In the last week &. short

inquiring on behalf of the UBC radio

The response was super if not

rightly called such) is poor to say
the very least.
About this we can do nothing.
Would you believe that the

you all use toasters, irons and

current in the buildings and thence
our signal? The answer might be
FM, but that is still an open
question. The problem of financing
keeps it open.

that we think we do not a bad job for
a bunch of volunteer amateurs, as
comparison with the currently
strike-bound fiasco at 'LG would
suggest. In answer to your many

George M
1 have been reading my copy of
The Ubyssey hoping to find a review
of Mussoc's production of George
M, but as yet have not found one. I
think that a campus newspaper
should give students an idea of not
only world-wide events, but of what
is happening on campus as well.
If you can review off-campus
movies, surely you can send
someone across campus to review a
live student production. I
remember last year you gave an
intelligent review of their No No
Nanette, and helped greatly with
their publicity (I know, because
that review prompted me to go),
and I think it's a shame that no
mention of George M! has been
made, excluding the ads.
So, to do my bit for interested
students (and to Mussoc) I would
like to put a plug in The Ubyssey
drain for George M!
It's the story of George M. Cohan,
the man who had the greatest in
fluence on Musical Theatre. It includes songs such as Give My
Regards to Broadway, Harrigan,
Grand Old Flag and Yankee Doodle
Dandy. I haven't seen the show yet
but if Grace Macdonald's
choreography is anything like last
year's show, and other shows of her
I've seen, I know it'll be sensational.
The show runs till Saturday at the
Old Auditorium and tickets could be
bought at Vancouver Ticket Centres. Enough of a plug.
I just hope that year's production
will receive a bit more support from
Break a leg Mussoc.

The results of last week's Alma
Mater Society vote, and the admission in the subsequent Ubyssey
editorial that "the 50 Ubyssey
people who voted pretty well swung
the election," clearly indicates that
this latest of "democratic" campus

of personality allegiances, but that
this paper served as a blatantly

Heartbreak House not Shaw's
best but centre manages well
George Bernard Shaw's Heartbreak House is not
one of the playwright's better efforts. The drama lags
at times and occassionally the dialogue tends to
become little more than clever one-liners at the expense of a straight man. Nevertheless, the Vancouver
East Cultural Centre's production of the play proved
to be both entertaining and delightful to the audience
at the preview.
The reason is simple, a talented cast and the exploitation of those elements in the play that have a
particularly topical flavor for us today. While the
Heartbreak House,

Directed by Tom Kerr,

play ultimately concerns the insular and trivial
habits of, cultured England before the First World
War it is the battle between the sexes vying for moral
superiority and the ensuing banter which emerges in
the play. If the men are invariably the losers of the
battles, well then, Shaw is really quite prophetic.
Hasn't the whole emphasis of contemporaty thought
on the matter taken a sentimental turn in that
However, while the play specificaally suggests the
nautral superiority of women, or rather, I should say
the social superiority of women, Shavian theatrics
are saying nothing of the kind. What the play actually
says is that, given men who are so pathetic, so
gullible to their dreams and their women, given
women who continually best them in parlor room
antics, the social environment is flabby and vacuous
and it would really love to be defeated. Hence, the
masochistic overtones of the ending. So much for
That leaves the other reason for the Centre's
success with the production. The cast: is excellent
from top to bottom. Mary Huggins is superb as Mrs.
Hushabye, the enchanting and enigmatic dark-haired
lady, as is Robert Clothier's portrayal of the
mysterious Captain Shotover. (Clothier is probably
best known for his role as Relic in the CBC series, The
One can also isolate the work of Daniel Moynihan
who portrays Hector Hushaby. His sword dual with a
phantom antagonist for a phantom woman was one of
the high points of the production. In fact, the entire
cast can be cited for their fine touches they added.
The only weak part, I thought, was that of the
character Ellie Dunn played by Marie Stillin who
stumbled in the early going but got progressively
stronger as the play continued, a fact which augurs
well for the play's run at the Centre.
Alas, however, part of the pleasure of a Shaw play
is finally leaving the theatre. They are such long-
winded things. Shaw has compared himself to
Shakespeare, opting for his ability over the
Elizabethan's. Certainly, the material Shaw had to
work with is much skimpier than that of the bard.
Imaginative possibilities were much vaster in the
16th century than in the 20th. Based on this, there is
good reason for opting for Shaw over the bard,
especially when it comes to the comedies.

Saints alive
In reply to the criticism of the

supposed "showing" of their

Alma Mater Society president Gord
Blankstein, I would like to say that
due to inadequate publicity that The
Ubyssey gave to the story, the facts
of Gord's "inhuman treatment"
were not known to many.
If the Ubyssey had considered the
incident more seriously and related
the extenuating circumstances,
there are Christians I am sure who
would have responded with sympathy and love and would rather
criticize those who mistreated him.
It may well be that there are
some Christians on this campus
who do not really care about the
needs and welfareof others, but this
is not the teaching of Jesus Christ.
Better and more sincere news
coverage would be much appreciated.

Why a conference?
The same inflation that caused the rise in your food costs from
fifteen cents of every dollar in 1971 to the present twenty-one
cents this year was also responsible for causing the cost of food
in the Third World to account for up to eighty cents of every
The question is not whether there is a food crisis but rather,
what are the causes of the food crisis and how do we respond to
"Bread for the World" is a two week conference designed to
help the university as a community to come to grips with these
questions. Even more important to the university community is
how does this university fit into the problem, and how can it
deal effectively with the issue.
The conference has been designed to not only ask the questions
but to  provide a forum  in which possible solutions can be
considered.  To  this end  the  programme of speakers, films,
evening seminars, and a forty hour fast has been organized not
with the intention of "guilting" students but to allow for a two
week "Teach-In" in which our own life styles may be examined
in terms of world hunger.
The forty hour fast, beginning Friday, February 21, will provide
the opportunity for students and faculty to come together to
discuss in seminars and informal groups the question of how a
university education and the kinds of research conducted on
this campus may be changed to meet the present need and
prevent future crises.
The money generated from the fast will  be divided equally
between   two   projects;   one   in   Ghana,   and   the  other   in
Bangladesh.  The  projects,  operated  through  CUSO  and the
Mennonite Central Committee have been selected firstly on the
basis of getting the money through with the least amount of
administrative deductions and secondly on the basis of being
primarily self-help as opposed to temporary direct aid.
All students and faculty are urged to attend any or all of the
events.   During the two weeks of the teach-in there will  be
speakers'and films at noon each day in SUB, seminars in the
evening,   and  the  forty   hour  fast  in  the  residence of the
Vancouver School of Theology here on campus.

The Projects
"Bread for the World" is in part for the purpose of raising
money to support people who are malnourished or starving. The
organizing committee has delineated two agencies that we feel
will get the money to the people with the least administrative
expense. These agencies, which ^re generally regarded in high
esteem by their peers in development and relief work, are CUSO
and the Mennonite, Central Committee. The money that is
raised will be divided equally between the two agencies.
The specific CUSO project we are supporting is a program of
education on alternative agricultural methods and provision of
new agricultural equipment. The work is with farmers living in
ten villages in northern Ghana. The region has had decreasing
rainfall in the recent past and now borders on the Sahel drought
stricken area.
Two specific Mennonite Central Committee projects have been
selected. One is a project of immediate relief combined with
irrigational and agricultural development. It is in Chad, a
land-locked nation in the Sahel, that has received little other
aid. The other project is one of emergency feeding and seed and
crop development in Bangladesh.
We urge you to consider contributing to these projects. You
may contribute any time between Feb. 19 and 28 at locations
around the campus. Our goal is $20,000 for these projects. We
urge students, faculty and staff to contribute to these projects
through the following means:
1. An account called "Bread for the World" established in the
AMS office. Take your donation directly.
2. We will be collecting money on campus in the next month
through volunteers. Watch for volunteers in cafeterias and
3. You may bring your donation to the Lutheran Campus
Centre, 5885 University Blvd.
4. Use the Fast as an opportunity for donating funds.

More Aid From B.C.?
B.C. has an Agricultural Aid to Developing Countries and World
Disaster Areas Fund. Many Development organizations and
individuals are urging the Government to increase the capital
amount of this fund from $5 Million to $20 Million. This would
increase the amount available each year to $172 Million.
Contacting,your MLA as well as Premier Barrett personally or
by letter will show your concern for world development.
Information sheets on this project are available throughout the
campus. Pag* 8

Women's pavillion 'speculation'
The controversial women's
pavilion slated as an International
Women's Year project for UBC
currently is no more than a
proposal, women's dean Margaret
Fulton said Monday.
"It's all speculation," she said.
"We don't even know if we will
have a pavilion of any sort just yet.
Three women members of a
pavilion planning committee
resigned 10 days ago criticizing
Fulton's handling of the planning
and questioning the usefulness of
the building.
Fulton said the pavilion has
progressed no further than the
initial design planning stages. The
project has received no official
sponsorship from the university.
Plans and a request for $250,000
have   been   submitted   to   the
Canadian Urban Demonstration
Program in Ottawa which will
handle the Habitat '76 United
Nations Conference on Human
under fire
Part of the conference will be
held at UBC.
If Habitat provides funds for the
pavilion, it will be built now as an
IWY project and used for the
Habitat program next year, Fulton
Resigned planning committee
member Kate Swann has said she
could get no assurance that the
pavilion would continue to be used
as a women's building during
Fulton said the conference,
studying urban affairs, is a
program which "naturally concerns women".
The resigned members also
criticized Fulton for not soliciting
ideas on the pavilion from off-
campus women.
Fulton responded  :   "We have
been reluctant to get community
groups involved at this point
because we can go no further than
the already-completed design
A design-presentation meeting in
January is "the closest we've come
to any kind of decision and really
no more can be done until we hear
from Ottawa," she said.

suspended as long as this one, it is
natural for interest to lag, Fulton

A call for public ownership of the

Feb. 2.
The convention saw B.C.

leader Grant Notley join. national
leader David Lewis in attacking
the Lougheed government over its
oil sand policy.
Referring to a Lougheed campaign promise of "open government," Notley said,,"the only

Notley also mentioned the
Syncrude project's cost increase
from $846 million in June, 1974 to $2
billion in September 1974. He was
quoting figures from documents

The Conservative Alberta
government has already committed $1 billion to the tar sands
"An   NDP   government   would
move immediately upon election to
'provincialize' Syncrude," said
Notley. "We could do this because
Syncrude is a provincially chartered corporation."
"Surely we have enough sense of
pride, of intelligence, to be able to
develop Syncrude ourselves,"
Barrett said, adding "and even if
we don't, the oil won't go rotten in

it should be developed for the good

Lewis said the legal dispute over

Overtime loss costs 'Birds first
The UBC Thunderbirds had the
champ on the ropes and first place
in their hands Saturday night and
then let it all slip away. Leading by
seven points with only two minutes
left, the 'Birds allowed first place
Victoria to catch up and tie them at
the end of regulation time and then
lost 64-63 in overtime.
So instead of holding first place,
the 'Birds now find themselves tied
for third and in danger of being
eliminated from the Canada West
playoffs. Only the first two teams
qualify for post-season play.
The difference in the game from
that of the 'Birds 73-47 Friday win
was a combination of' a much
improved effort by UVic coupled
with a below par effort from UBC.
Rob Parris, the 5'8" guard of the
Vikings, made several brilliant
drives to the basket, shooting and
scoring in close over the likes of
6"11" Mike Mckay and 6'8" Bob
Dunlop. Also, the Vikings shot 44
per cent from the field Saturday,
compared with only .30 per cent
UBC's shooters had a frustrating
time. Steve Pettifer, who scored 27
points in Friday's game, had his
field shooting almost completely
shackled Saturday. He finished
with 17 points, but 11 of them were
on foul shots. The only 'Bird to
shoot consistently was captain
Blake Iverson, who finished with 19
points, high for UBC.
"Our foul shooting lost the game
for us," coach Peter Mullins said
later. "Over the whole game we
only shot 58 per cent on fouls. If we
had shot up to our average, we'd be
in first place today."
Friday's game was a completely
different affair. Victoria looked
almost totally inept and the 'Birds
looked like national champions.
The vaunted Victoria forward line
of Dave Mulcahy, Jim Dudderidge
and Lee Edmundson seemed to be
in a strange paralytic trance. Rob
Parris didn't appear to be too interested in what was going on.
The 'Birds meanwhile, looked
smooth and powerful. Steve Pettifer couldn't miss his patentend
baseline shot, Ralph Turner was
driving and scoring in close, and
even Chris Trumpy was scoring.
The result of weekend play left
Victoria (12-6) still in first, Calgary
(11-5) in second, and UBC and
Alberta, both at 10-6, tied for third.
UBC's upcoming series with
Calgary at War Memorial Gym
Friday and Saturday is therefore
"You bet it is," said Mullins.
"We can't afford to lose either of
those games, or either of the two
the week after against Saskatchewan. A lost will very probably
eliminate us from the playoffs."
The Thunderettes also had a
hard time with Victoria, winning
51-35 Friday, but just barely
managing to win 40-38 Saturday.
"We suffered a mental lapse,"
said   coach   Sue   Evans   of   the

rattled us."

threw the ball out of bounds, and
otherwise gave the ball over.
Despite the loss of three starters to
fouls, Victoria forced UBC to give
up the ball time after time,
allowing the Vikettes to cut away
at a UBC lead that stood at 15 at the
A factor in the near-disaster was
the bewildering array of defences
employed by the Vikettes. The
Victoria team switched from a 1-3-
1 zone to a full court zone press to a
2-1-2 zone and then to a man-toman defence. The Thunderettes
couldn't adjust quickly enough in
many cases, with the result that
they took bad shots, or found
themselves pressed for time as the
thirty second shooting clock wound
down while they attempted to
crack the newest Victoria defence.
"(Victoria coach) Mike Gallo is
a smart coach," said Evans. "He
had us off-balance with his switching tactics. That, plus our
fatigue late in the game were the
things that hurt us."
Gallow was gracious in defeat,
despite the apparent exasperation
over the officiating which he
displayed during the game.
"UBC is a fine team," he said.
"I'm just happy that my team
could come within two points of
them, and I'm proud of them for it.
UBC should go all the way from
Friday's game was much more
in the accustomed style of the
Thunderettes. They pressed
aggressively most of the game,
and their defence was too much for
Victoria to handle. UBC forwards
Nora   Ballantyne,   Rose   Sebellin
and Tara Smith played in front of
the Victoria forwards as the
Vikette players tried to cut into the
clear for passes. Consequently,
Victoria found it nearly impossible
to work the ball in close to the
basket, where they enjoyed a slight
height advantage.
The results effectively
eliminated Victoria from the race
for first place. The only team now
with a chance of catching UBC is
Saskatchewan, whose next games
are against Victoria.
"Mike Gallo said he would do his
best to beat them," said Evans. "If
they do, it cinches first for us."
If the women's division, the first
place team advances immediately
to the national final in New,
Brunswick March 6-8.
The Thunderettes' next games
are against Calgary Friday and
Saturday here at UBC. The team
will be without Carol Turney who is
going to Lethbridge to participate
in the Canada Games.
"Playing without Carol should be
a good experience for us," Evans
said. "We tend to depend on her too
much. Winning without her would
really help the confidence of the
other players."
Calgary gave UBC a hard time in
Calgary a week ago, so the test
should be a good one. Game times

but they went a long way to dispell
a season long myth.
They beat the University of
Alberta in their own rink.
If the 'Birds can win one from
Calgary next weekend, they'll have
to go into Edmonton for the league
championship February 21 and
play a best of three series against
the Golden Bears.
And up until now this season, no
one has beaten the Bears in Edmonton.
The 'Birds turned the trick
Friday night with Keith Tindle
slamming in the winner at 3:40 of
the second overtime period.
"Bert Halliwell's conditioning
program won the game for us,"
said coach Bob Hindmarch.
Assistant coach Halliwell has had
his program credited for more
than one UBC win.
The Golden Bears came out
smokin', out shooting the 'Birds 19-
6. Despite the Alberta barrage,
UBC finished the period with a 1-0
lead. Sean Boyd was the
marksman for UBC.
Also, starting goalie Dave Andrews was knocked out of the game
in the first period, needing five
stitches to close a cut to his face.
Jim Ofrim and Bill Ennos traded
goals in the second as UBC
maintained the one goal advantage. Ross Barros and Abbey
Hebert gave Alberta a short lived
lead in the third as Brian Penrose
and Jim Lawrence scored 37
seconds apart to make the score 4-
But Bear Steve McKnight sent
the game into overtime with only
eight seconds left.
Arnie Pederson and Howie
Crosley traded goals in the first
overtime period to set the stage for
Tindle's heroics in sudden-death.
The story of Saturday afternoon's game was the rash of
penalties the 'Birds incurred in the
closing moments of the second
At the 18-minute mark of the
second, with the 'Birds leading 2-1
Rod Hare dumped Golden Bear
Rick Peterson twice and again on
the way to the penalty box to serve
his double minor for tripping and
interference. Luckily, Jim
Lawrence and Grant Cumberbirch
kept Alberta from tieing it before
the end of the period with some
excellent penalty-killing.
But at 1:20 of the third, Bruce
Brill was sent off for high sticking,
leaving the 'Birds two men short.
Hare stepped back onto the ice
after serving his penalty only to
see Oliver Stewart tie it at 2-2.
The Golden Bears caught the
'Birds in an organizational lapse as
they added three more in the next
three minutes to boost the score to
UBC made a bit of a comeback,
pulling to 5-4 with Keith Tindle and
Brian DeBiasio providing the
finishing touches on a good effort.
UBC missed wrapping up second
place as the University of Calgary
pulled within two points with 4-0
and 7-4 wins over Saskatchewan.
The 'Birds must now win one of the
two games next weekend in
Calgary to make the playoffs and if
they do, it will be their first win in
Foothills Arena this season.
Meanwhile, on the junior varsity
level, the UBC Braves are just
about finished their regular season
action and have clinched a playoff
spot. They are currently in fourth
place in the Richmond Intermediate League with 32 points.
Last Friday the Braves fell 5-3 to
Burnaby, but recouped to drop the
SFU Clansmen 9-7 on Sunday.
Thunderbirds want action

George and Mike Richey, the big
guns for the 'Birds at 190 and 158
lbs. respectively, were both upset
in a way against Whitworth.
Neither was able to pin his opponent as both won decisions by
wide margins; George outclassed
his man 22-3 and Mike did him one
better by totalling 31 points to his
opponent's one.
Coach Bob Laycoe was pleased
with his team's performance which
saw eight 'Birds win their matches.
"We're really gaining
momentum now. We're going to be
tough at the Canada West tourney
in two weeks," Laycoe said.
Jon Davison, who has been
chosen for the British Columbia
Canada Games team, gave the

Gus Romanelli at 150 lbs. and
Craig Delahunt at 167 lbs. both won
their matches by falls. Romanelli
and Delahunt have improved
immeasurably since last year and

in their weight classes at the
Canada West tourney.
Phillippe Markon, the former
Quebec champion, had trouble
with his man and was in danger .of
being decisioned when he rallied
for a third-period pin.
Heavyweight Kyle Raymond had
no trouble with his man, literally
tearing him apart as he built up a
20-1 lead before his opponent
defaulted due to an injured knee.
At the B.C. open George Richey,
Raymond and Izumi all won
division titles. Dave Kyle picked up
his first major victory of the year
as he won the 220-lb. class.

The rugger 'Birds should escape

Their only match so far this year
was a friendly game against Royal

games going soon they may find
their schedule running way past

Developed countries
ignored grain trade
at food conference
Developed countries refused to
discuss the "key issue" of grain
trade during the recent World Food
Conference, an MP who attended
the conference said Sunday.
But Andrew Brewin (NDP
Toronto-Greenwood) said the
meeting was still "an historic
conference," while speaking to a
small audience at the Lutheran
campus centre.
He said the 140-nation conference, held in Rome last
November, laid the groundwork
for future actions, but also
revealed a conflict between
developed and Third World
countries over food trade.
He said Third World countries
have asked for help to allow them
to increase their own food
production rather than depend on
Third World countries also want
a more equitable system of world
trade, so they will obtain fair
prices for their products and buy
the food they may require.
The conference produced 40
pages of resolutions which-Brewin
termed, "a necessary prerequisite
for action."
But he said it's not possible at the
present time to judge whether the
conference was successful.
"The real test will be whether
what was decided will be followed
through," he said.
The conference was called to
improve* the current world
situation, in which hundreds of
millions of people face the physical'
and mental deprivations of starvation, Brewin said.
All agreed it was not a hopeless,
inevitable situation," he said. "But
it could only be solved by international action.
"I got the impression that the
immediate problem was solved,"
Brewin said.
Pledges for increased food aid by
Canada and other countries have
eased the short-term problem, but
the much more difficult long-term
problems remain to be solved, he
The conference established a
World Food Council to manage
world food reserves and a fund for
agricultural development to increase world food production.
"We cannot eliminate hunger
without eliminating poverty,"
Brewin stated. He said he is confident both poverty and hunger can
be successfully eliminated.
A new emphasis on the importance of agriculture throughout
the world, coupled with increased
awareness of other nations'
problems would be the key to
improving the world food situation,
Brewin said.
"World food production was
going down," Brewin said.
Five years ago in Canada the
government paid farmers not to
grow grain, but now Canada's
agricultural resources must be
better utilized to feed the hungry
millions, he said.
Brewin described the trade
question as a "key issue" for Third
World countries, but developed
countries refused to talk about the
International co-operation is
necessary to improve the long-
term situation by establishing
more effective aid programs and
by establishing fairer trade
arrangements, Brewin said.
"It's a question of survival we're
talking about."
He added "food aid should not be
a political weapon."
Brewin suggested that governments would increase aid if more
people put pressure on those in
He praised the Canadian
government for increasing food aid
to 1 million tons of grain per year
for the next three years.
Third World starvation
breeds ignorance, decay
Malnutrition in the Third World
is both the cause and result of the
vicious circle that perpetuates
ignorance and starvation in these
countries, a UBC nutrition expert
said Monday.
Human nutrition prof Indrajit
Desai told a southeast Asia studies
seminar that malnutrition affects a
person's mental and physical
development, limiting his intellectual and productive abilities.
A person who is only two-thirds
of his or her proper size and is
chronically fatigued from starvation is not likely to be able to
function as well as he or she
should, Desai said.
Starvation in a baby will cause it
to have a smaller brain with fewer
brain cells than the person who has
not suffered deprivation, Desai
While hungry, a person will not
be able to achieve as much as
otherwise, even disregarding early
In India the average child misses
50 school days annually, or one-
third of the school year, because of
illnesses as compared to the eight
days a year of the average North
American child, he said.
Motivation is also hurt, he said.
In Pakistan, 60 per cent of the
students drop out after the first
grade, Desai said.
Physical damage also results. A
malnourished person has only 60
per cent of the muscles he or she
should have, he said.
He or she cannot  work  hard
enough and is unable to support
dependents, he said.
In an agrarian economy where
malnutrition is widespread this is
disastrous, Desai said. He said
people keep sinking deeper and
continue to starve.
The new generation inherits
physical problems and will be
equally incapable of supporting
itself unless programs are implemented to break the circle, said
The seminar was part of a
continuing series on southeast Asia
and its problems.
FM licence
in two years
A proposed FM licence for UBC
radio CITR would provide special
educational programs of particular relevance to UBC students,
station music director Tp:n|
Harrison said Thursday.
Harrison also predicted the
station will have an FM licence
within two years if positive action
is taken by members.
"It is a popular idea within the
station for us to try our hand at
getting an FM licence," Harrison
said in an interview.
An FM station will expand*
CITR's audience and services,
provide better sound quality and
the impetus to become more
professional, Harrison said.
