Array AMS budget gets fi
The Alma Mater Society should
consider alternate services for
those undergraduate societies
which don't benefit from services
currently provided AMS treasurer
John Wilson told council Wednesday.
In debuting his $684,830 1973-74
budget before council Wilson told
the meeting the society in the past
has been too gutless to examine the
pros and cons of the services it
should or could be providing for the
$34 AMS fee.
The budget passed first reading
(simple majority) and now returns
to the budget committee for
amendments and two-thirds

thirds passage by council as a
Indications are the budget
committee deliberations may
spark the priorities debate since
Wilson invited all interested
groups, especially undergraduate
societies, to make submissions to
the committee noon Tuesday in the
SUB council chambers.
Wilson was replying to law
representative Gordon Turriff who
asked what the society provided
law students for their fee.
Currently, the main services are
the student union building, AMS
events, The Ubyssey, undergraduate societies and in-
. tramurals Wilson said.
"We don't use many of those,"
Turriff said. "In fact if we don't get
The Ubyssey, we aren't getting
anything for our $34 fee."
(The $34 AMS fee is allotted, $5
for the covered swimming pool, $5
for extra-mural-team sports, $15
for the SUB building fund and $9
for activities such as The Ubyssey,
clubs, as well as the covering
society's administration costs.)
"I agree that we have become
too centralized," Wilson said.
"That's one of the mistakes of
building the student union building
and collecting all our operations
around it.
"We should consider providing
alternate services for those undergraduate societies who don't
get the full benefit of what we
provide now."
Wilson told councillors that they
should request submissions from
all their undergraduate societies
on what they would like the society
to provide for them.
The AMS budget, which Wilson
says represents a political
statement on how the society
should allot its revenue from
student fees, was published in The
Ubyssey, Sept. 28.
While the grand total of all AMS
revenue is $684,830, a large portion
of that is absorbed immediately by
non-discretionary allotments —
constitutional requirements and
other committments — such as:
* $270,000 to cover the SUB
building debt.
* $13,000 kicked back to undergraduate societies to cover the
extra fees they levy on their
* $20,000 in graduate .class fees.
* $91,680 to cover the $5 per
student athletic fee.
* $90,000 to the covered pool
* $26,925 set aside as a constitutionally required margin for
* An additional $22,000 to cover
various constitutional provisions
such as the SUB art fund and the
accident benefit fund.

FORMER UBYSSEY SPORTS EDITOR Allan Fotheringham expounds on the mysteries of the downtown
press while rapt listeners and frantic physician (not shown) look on. Beginning with quotations from "Campus Chaff," (See The Ubyssey 1951) his meandering monologue soon turns to anecdotes from his college
days. "Then there was the time", he continues, "when the engineers, duly peeved at my scathing phrases,
divested me of all my clothing and left me shivering at Horseshoe Bay . .." (True story folks).
Fotheringham—hack back now seer
Former Ubyssey sports editor Allan
Fotheringham returned to UBC Wednesday
telling tales of civic politics, wards and
limousine liberals.
Now a Vancouver Sun newspaper columnist, Fotheringham spoke to a political
science class offering sage wisdom on the
current political scene in Vancouver.
"TEAM went into power with idealistic
philosphies but the day-to-day happenings
^ghave corrupted them in the sense that they
forgot what they were put there to do," he
"I'm a reporter and I get a reading in this
town that people are wondering what the hell
they (the TEAM dominated city council) are
He likened TEAM'S sweep in last
December's civic election to the
^Trudeaumania which swept across Canada in
"It was somewhat like Trudeau with people
going overboard during a love affair."
Fotheringham also credited a general
"disgust" with Non-Partisan Association
mayor Tom Campbell as another reason for
the TEAM landslide.
But one of the major weaknesses in council
is a lack of leadership, Fotheringham said.
0 "TEAM doesn't have any leadership at the
'moment and they are floundering.
"They're doing a better job than most
people realize but they don't have any
communication at the top. That's what a
leader does and they don't have one."
Fotheringham called Mayor Art Phillips a
"limousine liberal who wants to parley being
leader of the city into the liberal party
leadership and then premier of the province."
However, despite a lack of leadership,
Fotheringham said the TEAM council is
better now than they were six months ago.
Nervous at first, Fotheringham quickly
settled down and easily answered a barrage
of questions from the 40-odd persons in the
Buchanan penthouse — a room reserved only
for special occasions.
Answering questions on the ward system,
he said the same people will still emerge on
top but "at least you'd have someone
representing the east side of the city to talk
Aid. Harry Rankin is currently the only
councillor living in the east end.
He attributed much of the controversy over
the ward system to the lingering suspicion of
politicians controlling one special area.
"It stems from the more than 30-year rule
of the NPA in the old ward system which led
to corrupt practises and increased
However, he said this should not be a reason
to reject a ward system in Vancouver, the
only major city left in Canada without such a
municipal government organization.
"Crooked politicians will be crooked under
any system and honest ones will be honest.
It's not the system that corrupts."
And if Vancouver residents opt for a ward
system in the Oct. 24 referendum,
Fotheringham predicts the Committee for
Progressive Electors will seat three or four
members on an expanded council.
As for Rankin's position in COPE's strategy
for the next election, he said: "They'll be a
challenge to Harry for his great guru role on
top and I suspect it's starting to happen
(That means they'll ask him to run for
Rankin is currently the only COPE councillor.
Turning to provincial politics,
Fotheringham said the NDP government has
"over-reacted as usual" by making every
elected official declare their financial assets.
"The thing they've overlooked is the deputy
minister who makes between $35,000-40,000 a
year and, for example, under Social Credit
government invests in mining deals which
someone else in his department is making
decisions about.
"They should get to the civil servants who
can affect their own financial dealings and
stop worrying about the poor old alderman in
20  per  cent   to   the
nion    building    ad-
and 15 per cent to
te societies and 10 per
arges are in turn ab-
allotments from the
onary fund,
ilson says this was done to
show council just what amount of
office time was being absorbed by
the various services council offers
and to allow priorities to be set on
this basis.
The remainder of the $151,000
discretionary fund not absorbed by
administration costs is allotted to
the various hard services the
society provides.
Included are The Ubyssey
($32,000), additional undergraduate society grants
($10,000), various AMS service
committees (about $3,000) and
radio CYVR ($2,000).
The rest is absorbed by the
operating budgets of the AMS
executive offices.
Among the new expenditures
Wilson proposes are:
* revival of the Mamooks poster
printing operation with a paid
manager — $800.
* revival of the committee to
supervise the $40,000 society art

Simon Fraser University
students' council voted
unanimously Wednesday to
prohibit free distribution of the
Georgia Straight on the Burnaby
SFU follow UBC student council
who voted Oct. 3 to ban free
distribution of the privately-owned
tabloid on UBC.
Members of the Alma Mater
Society council, some Ubyssey
staffers and students seized about
10,000 Straights when publisher
Dan McLeod and three employees
attempted to distribute the paper
around campus Oct. 4.
The papers are currently stored
in the AMS executive offices on the
second floor of SUB.
McLeod has told AMS president
Brian Loomes that the Straight will
seek an injunction in B.C. supreme
court against the AMS.
SFU also stopped free
distribution of the Straight on the
campus Oct. 4.
The motion to allow the Straight
to continue selling its paper at
SFU, but not to freely distribute
the paper followed an hour of
debate Wednesday between
councillors, a National Union of
Students representative, AMS
publications manager John Dufort,
and Straight features editor Jack
Moore, alias Badass Horatio.
Horatio told council the Straight
is involved in a push to increase its
size, circulation and advertising
' 'We want to supply free copies of
an alternate city newspaper to
campuses," he said.
The paper, set up in 1967, as an
alternate or "underground"
newspaper has managed to survive
police pressure, city council
censorship and staff dissention in
1972 which resulted in the formation of the Grape, a labor-
oriented newspaper.
Horatio told council McLeod
would be agreeable to setting up a
Lower Mainland ad co-op.
"Since the hassle has been
around ads and ad revenue we feel
we can help campuses get ads," he
"We have two women who sit in
an office all week long doing
nothing but getting ads. We can get

under the amendment undergraduate candidates would only
have to have taken on full winter
session. Graduate students would
simply have to be registered in
grad studies to run for senate.
Council passed a motion supporting a Chilean Solidarity rally
Friday. The same motion was
tabled at last week's meeting.
Council also voted to allot $10 for
advertising to the Chilean ad hoc
solidarity committee.
Council also unanimously voted
to ask the upcoming national union
of students meeting to explore the
possibility to gaining students a
$100 federal income tax deduction
for textbooks.
No money for dual ads
From page 1
them to say to advertisers: 'How
about  buying  ads  in  a  campus
paper'," said Horatio.
However, Dufort told council
most advertisers do not have the
money to advertise in two or more
"Most advertisers have fixed
budgets, say $200 or $300, with
which to advertise in smaller
papers and will go generally to one
paper only."
Dufort told AMS council last
week that free distribution of the
Straight on UBC could take away
30 to 50 per cent of The Ubyssey's
local advertising, expected to total
more than $54,000 this year.
"Burnaby advertisers would
probably advertise with the Peak
whereas West Vancouver and
downtown advertisers would go to
The Ubyssey," he said.
"The crux of the situation is not
ads or even loss of revenue, but
that the Straight is a private
venture coming on to a campus for
a profit," said Dufort.
Asked if freedom of the press
was an issue in the discussion,
Dufort said: "This issue is not
freedom of the press because the
Straight can still sell on campus.
As far as UBC goes, the Straight
could even use their own boxes
from which to sell the paper."
Dorothy   Wigmore,   immediate
past-president of Canadian
University Press, told council the
difference between the Straight
and student newspapers is that
campus papers depend on advertising and subsidies from
student councils.
Either way, said Wigmore, the
students lose.
A representative of B.C. Institute
of Technology in Burnaby told
council 80 per cent of the revenue
funds for the Link, the BCIT
student newspaper, comes from
"Can we allow a larger paper to
come in and break a smaller
paper?" asked the representative.

SUB committee in a fog
The status of the controversial
SUB development committee
remains unclear, Alma Mater
Society president Brian Loomes
said Wednesday.
Loomes told The Ubyssey the
committee was granted $200 in the
AMS budget for this year, but was
not mentioned in the constitution
because it was not a standing
"They haven't submitted any
reports to the AMS council this
year, so we really don't know
what's in the minds of the committee members," Loomes said.
"They're just holding on to their
office in SUB."
Women's collective member
Jeanette Auger whose office is
adjacent to the management
committee's said she doubted the
existence of the committee.
But the SUB development
committee remains in room 226
because the present B.C. Tel strike
has delayed the replacement of the
office's phones with an outside line.
Auger referred to a dispute
between members of the committee and the Association" of
University and College Employees
over office allocation.
"The committee members,
(former AMS president) Doug
Aldridge and (former AMS coordinator) Bob Angus maintained
they needed the telephone in the
office," she said.
The SUB management committee voted Oct. 5 to temporarily
place the AUCE in room 228 while a
telephone was installed in room
226, occupied by the SUB
development committee, then to
exchange the offices once the installment was completed.
Auger said several members of
the women's collective tried to
apply for membership of the
committee, but discovered the
committee was not mentioned in
the constitution.
"They don't have regular
meetings," she said. "Their office
is basically a place for Angus and
Aldridge to hang around."
Loomes said non-standing AMS
committees required approval
from the AMS council through the
SUB management committee.
"The SUB development committee
has not received this permission,"
he said.
"The committee was reestablished last May," member
Rick Murray told The Ubyssey
Wednesday. "If the council votes
against renewing the committee,
that's their decision."
Murray listed the Pit and SUB
listening lounge as past projects
and the new pool and AMS
management of food services as
projects the committee was
presently involved in.
"This is not the type of committee that can meet every week
like the finance committee," he
said. Murray said the committee
was loosely structured and
provided for people working on
several different projects.
"We have no authority," said
Murray. "Our actual purpose is to
collect information on development and plans for SUB and
submit it to council."
"The office is basically a cubbyhole where we can do this," he
Neither Angus or Aldridge were
available for comment.

A motion to limit student
representation in graduate studies
faculty meetings to less than the
required minimum of five per cent
of student population was tabled to
future discussion at senate Wednesday night.
The motion, put forward by
Graduate Studies dean Patrick
McTaggart-Cowan would have
meant only 30 to 40 students rather
than about 60 would be entitled to
attend and vote at faculty
Cowan said he asked for this
amendment due to the unusually
large number of faculty in
graduate studies and the usually
poor turn-out at faculty meetings.
Cowan said he feared students
would be running the meetings if 60
were allowed to attend.
Student senator Svend Robinson
complained that senate had not
been previously informed of
Cowan's motion and that  it  be
referred to the November senate
meeting to allow senators proper
In response to Cowan's fears of
student domination Robunson later
said: If the poor turnout at grad
studies faculty meetings is indicative of faculty interest then I
see no reason why the students
shouldn't dominate it."
Currently faculties are required
to have between five and 25 per
cent of students on faculty meeting
according to a senate ruling
handed down last spring.
On Cowan's recommendations
based on motions passed at a
meeting of graduate studies
faculty senate did pass a recommendation easing requirements
for part-time students in a
master's program.

To be Indian is to be a man
"To be an Indian is to be a man."
This statement was reaffirmed Tuesday
night at a panel discussion in SUB ballroom
on native women's rights sponsored by the
women's office.
Kittie Maracle, provincial secretary of the
B.C. native women's council, is a case in
Under the Indian Act, an Indian woman
who marries a non-Indian or a non-
registered Indian loses her status as an
Indian. She therefore forfeits her right to
live on a reserve and to inherit property on a
However, an Indian man does not lose his
status if he marries a non-Indian. In fact, his
wife becomes a registered Indian and so do
their children.
Maracle was an Indian until she married.
Her husband is in reality an Indian but his
mother forgot to register his birth. As a
result, neither of them are Indians by legal
This ridiculous situation arises because in
r the 40s the Canadian government decided to
legislate race for administrative purposes.
So the government sent agents out to
register all Indians. Unfortunately some
were missed.
A registered Indian was then a ward of the
government and thus classed as a minor.
This means he/she could not vote, enter into
legal contracts, or go into a pub for a drink.
Later, under the Enfranchisement Act,
" many ] ndians traded their status as Indians
for these rights. When the father of a family
signed, his wife and children also lost their
Thus it happens there are many full
blooded Indians in Canada who are not
legally Indian. In addition, there are people
who are white except for a distant Indian
grandfather, who are registered Indians.
The section of the Indian Act which denies
Indian women the right to marry non-
Indians without losing their status was
challenged in the Supreme Court by
Laval. She had lost her status when she
married a white man.
The ruling handed down two weeks ago
was in favor of the government. The court
maintained the Canadian bill of rights
cannot supersede an act of parliament.
Maracle herself does not feel this problem
should have been taken to court, but rather
rectified by legislation.
She mentioned that Alberta Indian leader
Harold Cardinal and a group of men are
currently rewriting the Indian Act. No
women are involved.
"We have a bigger and longer and harder
fight than you do," she said to the women in
the audience. '
Other topics discussed included the effect
of the matriarchal system on Indian culture,
education before and after integration, and
an overview of the women's liberation
movement as it pertains to native women.
Panel moderator Jean Errington of the
status of women council charged the
women's movement "has been accused of
being white, middle class, and intellectual."
Hattie Fergusson, who holds the highest
chief title of the Tsymshean tribe said:
"Indians must be recognized as human
beings, not as a relic of archaeological
The Tsymsheans lived under a natriar-
chal system meaning the leaders of the
groups were women. Woman was revered
because she conceived life.
All decisions were made by women until
traders came to B.C. There are now some
male lower chiefs.
"The matriarchal system in my opinion
worked very well," Fergusson said.
Jewel Thomas, vice-president of the B.C.
native women's society, charged residential
schools are "one of the worst things that
ever happened to us."
Family feeling was destroyed, fear instilled, and many'children lost their drive
when taken from their homes and put in
residential schools. As a result, they lost
their religion and language, she said.
Few residential schools remain. Those
that do are mainly for orphans or those from
broken homes. Indians of high school age
who live in remote areas of the province
must come to a larger urban centre to attend school and board with families,
Thomas said.
Because of this, many Indian students do
not go to high school and the number attending university is pitifully low.
Many areas are trying to get more native
teacher aids. Also, there are day and
evening classes for adults who want to gain
an education, she said.
Although many problems still exist, "we
are working most of them out ourselves. I
really think we're headed in the right
direction," said Thomas.
Health, housing, nutrition, education,
welfare and unemployment are the main
areas of concern for native women's groups,
said Rose Charlie, president of B.C. Indian
homemaker's organization.
Grade seven is the average level of
education for Indians. This means their
incomes are generally lower and running a
household requires a great deal of effort.
Charlie said native women's groups aim
"to improve the lives and hopes of Indian
women, communities and homes."
When talking of integration she stressed
native people's desire to maintain their
identity as Indians. Trust and respect are
needed before integration can be successful,
she said.
Charlie repeated that Indian women have
been held in high respect by many tribes but
their rights today leave much to be desired
as they are forced into a subserviant role.
Next week the same panel will discuss
where Indian women go from here. If
desired, workshops may be instigated.
The women's office is committed to
providing information for low-income
bracket women in the community as well as
functioning as a campus organization.
The office is in SUB 230 and has a small
library of books and magazines pertaining
to women, as well as tapes of accredited
women's studies courses given last year. Page 4

Rec bitch
I have noticed that the
Recreation UBC hassle has pretty
well died down. Rec got its money,
so why answer those few that bitch
through The Ubyssey. This bothers
me, as I am a staunch opponent of
Rec and they cannot even justify
their own existence, or name the
authority which allows them
existence. I must assume that they
don't give a shit about the person
who has bought a Rec card.
They figure ignore them and
they'll go away. Obviously true,
almost no one bitches anymore. So
I, as one of those people who can't
take this lying down, have a new
I plead to you, Dean Walter
Gage, to spark these people into a
defence against the accusations.
Why are these people allows to RIP
OFF students? Rec UBC never
built or paid for the facilities that
they administer. These people only
take the students' money. Why, sir,
has no action been taken on the
sub-committee's recommendation
to consolidate student sports
facilities? Why must a casual
athlete pay so much for so little?
For example, I pay $22 for my
fitness and recreation:
$5 compusary athletic;
$5 hockey intramurals;
$7 locker and towel;
$5 REC.

While glancing through your
Friday issue I happened to spot the
article on Scientology by Boyd
McConnell and I was very im
pressed by his work. Mr. McConnell shows signs of becoming
an excellent reporter, true to style.
His very effective use of the
Better Business Bureau quote,
(which, by the way, does not
contain even one single personal
complaint) shows good originality
for an opening stroke similar only
to the techniques used by the well
established papers like the Vancouver Sun and Toronto Star.
His excellent use of generalities
throughout the article like — one
person smoking in actuality reads
"They all appeared to smoke
heavily" — show skill and fine
training in the arts of black public
relations and smear propaganda.
Another technique of master
journalism that Mr. McConnell
seems to have grasped very well is
the magnification of what the
author considers to be faults of the
reported on subject so as to create
greater effects of horror or disgust
on the readers — a slight blemish
on a person's cheek is reported as
"a cancerous growth".
I could go on with more examples to show his skills in this field
but I'm sure that they are self
evident to even the most critical of
With these skills that the author
has shown in that article, he seems
well on his way to becoming a star
reporter at one of the respected
dailies, where the demand for the
above mentioned aptitudes is
His future is assured. Mr. McConnell certainly does not need
help from the Church of Scientology or from anywhere else. He is
an excellent product of UBC and a
glowing example of "responsible

Readers blast Straight hassle
Congratulation s
In reference to your Friday editorial, let me take
this opportunity to congratulate you on your thorough
eradication of that upstart, left, right out, centre middle,
radical trash rag that has threatened the pleasant
monopoly of our "perfect" UBC newspaper.
It is completely clear to us that the possibility of lost
revenue is more than enough cause to negate any
possible advantage that could come frpm such limited
competition. The Ubyssey, long the champion of student
radical dissent, would, I'm sure, welcome the chance to
compete against the Georgia Straight, as the spirit of
"free enterprise" (choke) has always been known to be
fierce on this campus.
Also, we can be sure that the Alma Mater Society,
long the pawn of the Ubyssey staff, was only acting out of
a sense of fair play when it released its squad of henchmen to do their nasty task, unpleasant as it was!
Yes, we must send out a hearty "well done" that will
ring loudly down the hallowed halls of student apathy to
the wide regulators of our student democracy who have
championed this struggle for student unrest.

Property rights
It appears that the only basis the Alma Mater
Society or your staff had for swiping several thousand
copies of the Georgia Straight Thursday was that the
students of UBC own SUB and the AMS bureaucracy
administrates it for us, and similarly someone other
than the Georgia Straight owns the UBC campus and the
UBC administration administrates it for them, and that
therefore they can take anything found on their
property. I trust you will be as consistent in your support
of property rights in other issues from now on, as you
were in this one.
No doubt both you and the GS should be embarrassed, at least judging from past editorial policies of
both papers (and slanting of news articles, a more important indication), by the fact that this little farce is a
text-book example of the superiority of capitalism to
what might be called subsidism.
If the GS running on capitalist principles — the only
thing it has asked of a government was to be left alone —
can pay its staff and make a profit, while you guys, even
without pay, can't make a profit, and even take a loss
which you have to pick our pockets to fill (and even have
the gall to accuse McLeod of being the one who picks the
pockets!) — why, more power to the Georgia Straight!
And if you can't compete honestly, you might at
least have another go at explaining why their kind of
exploitation isn't a kind we'd do better with?

40,000 seized
Associated Christian owner Dan McVicar carried
the first of over 40,000 copies of his paper into the SUB
last Sabbath.
Then the race began.
Members of the Alma Mater Society, some Ubyssey
staffers and other heathens attacked him as he entered
the door. Shielding himself from the blows of rolled-up
Ubysseys, McVicar spoke calmly, explaining that the
purpose of his magazine was not to steal The Ubyssey's
advertising revenue, but merely to convert all the
heathens up on campus.
Hearing his words, the attacking rabble turned their
anger on the thousands of papers littering the floor.
Finding the parchments too tough to tear, they lit a huge
fire in the Speakeasy, much to the displeasure of McVicar and also two students who were working there.
The dispute between Associated Christian and The
Ubyssey has been brewing for over 40 days and 40 nights.
The main point worrying The Ubyssey is that McVicar
runs his operation on the proceeds of five loaves and two
fishes. He is therefore able to give the papers away free
and charge nothing for advertising. The Ubyssey states
that if the paper is distributed on campus, McVicar
could go to a prospective follower and say: "Look, if
20,000 heathens read two copies each, think how many
Christians your advertisements would reach. . ."

I am truly disheartened to see the stand of The
Ubyssey and the Alma Mater Society, but especially The
Ubyssey on the issue of whether the Georgia Straight
should be allowed to distribute free copies of its rag on
I've been at UBC three years and I've always been a
supporter of The Ubyssey in its fights with establishment dragons because I feel that journalist irreverence
for established institutions and customs is an important
part of a free society. It is something we don't get enough
of in the daily press. I even wrote for The Ubyssey for a
few weeks at the start of first year before quitting
because of a lack of time.
And at the recent poll asking how many times a
week The Ubyssey should be published, I voted that The
Ubyssey should publish five times a week, realizing that
the paper needed as much support as possible if it were
to continue in its present form.
Now I feel betrayed because The Ubyssey has taken
a reactionary, dangerous position for the first time in my
experience. The issue involved is freedom of the press.
That freedom means nothing if the right to distribute the
finished product is taken away.
Whether the Georgia Straight is sold for 25 cents or
given away free is beside the point — the point is that
anybody has the right to publish his or her point of view
and disseminate it to the public by any manner they
deem fit.
If you interfere with the right to distribute printed
matter, man, you got troubles because it leads right
back to the right to print matter and to think of that
matter in the first place.
Perhaps the issue isn't clear to The Ubyssey because
of the distribution appeared in The Ubyssey's own
backyard. But right now in Chile and in most countries in
the world, some bureaucrat is refusing to publish under
the same guise of "unfair competition" with established
media. What if the government of Canada passed a law
— and parliament can do anything — saying that only
state-supported newspapers A, B, C and D could publish
for free and that anybody else must charge money for
their newspapers? The Ubyssey would scream like hell
and rightly so.
I completely sympathize with your prospective
advertising revenue trouble as a result of the Straight's
competition, but that's one of the hazards of the
newspaper business.
Check with the B.C. Civil Liberties Association.
You'll probably find you've come down on the wrong side
of the fence this time.

The Georgia Straight sent the following letter to various
Lower Mainland companies. A photostat of the letter,
complete with Straight letterhead and the signatures of two
ad salesmen, ended up in the Ubyssey newsroom by way of
Vancouver City College—Eds.
Dear friend
The Georgia Straight newspaper announces a
major expansion in both size and circulation.
Beginning Oct. 4, we increase our layout to 32 pages,
and our circulation to 36,000. The increased circulation will derive mainly from free distribution of
the paper to all major college and university campuses in the Lower Mainland.
The expansion will serve a variety of purposes. It
will supplement the existing campus papers con-'
siderably, providing students with wider coverage of
local and national affairs. In allowing for broader,
more in-depth reporting, the expansion will provide
Vancouver, and eventually Western Canada with an
alternate press capable of dealing with issues of
public concern which do not receive adequate
coverage from the daily papers.
The expansion will also provide a vehicle through
which advertisers can reach an estimated 125,000 — a
substantial consideration for those wishing to achieve
maximum advertising potential.
The Straight has survived a lively, if stormy
history. Despite many setbacks, our evolution has
now reached the stage where the combined energy
and creativity of our staff are producing a paper of
consistent quality. The paper offers a wide variety of
features, ranging in topic from "How To Go About
Buying a Used Fishing Boat" to the regular editorials
and "award-winning" columns on the arts in Vancouver, home-making hints, and items designed
generally to interest and inform a wide and varied
The Georgia Straight has prospered and grows.
We would like to invite you to grow with us. So when
our ad representatives call on you, sit down and talk.
It's bound to be worth your while.
Thank you

The Georgia Straight
A number of points which our editorial apparently
didn't make clear:
As the above reprint of the letter the Straight sent to
their advertisers indicates, there can be no doubt about
their money-making intentions.
This was an Alma Mater Society action, not a
Ubyssey action, although we do support them.
No one is preventing the Straight from distributing
on campus, just from distributing free.
The Ubyssey is not supposed to make a profit, nor is
the AMS. The AMS is a non-profit society. The only way
The Ubyssey could effectively compete with the Straight
would be to increase our circulation, distribute downtown and charge for those copies sold downtown. To do
that we would have to drastically increase our off-
campus coverage thus denying space to all those
campus events which we are already heavily taxed to
cover. In effect the only way The Ubyssey could compete
with the Straight would be to cease being a campus
Finally a question to the many detractors on this
issue. What would you suggest the society do? The
business manager of The Ubyssey says if the Straight
continues to distribute free The Ubyssey will lose a lot of
ad revenue. He is supported in this assertion by other
Lower Mainland student unions. If The.Ubyssey loses
this revenue there are two alternatives:
Cut the number of issues or pages thus denying
space for campus coverage;
Increase the student subsidy to cover the lost ad
We're sure the society welcomes any alternate
solutions or suggestions. We'd be only too glad to print

Reps agree on united front
Students should present a united front in
their negotiations with the B.C. government
for best results.
That was a priority established by the
B.C. Association of Student Unions conference held at Capilano college in North
Vancouver Oct. 5 and 6.
Representatives agreed they should
become as active as possible in the process
of change in education in B.C. making their
collective voice heard and preparing briefs
for submission to the task force on the
Universities' Act.
Said Lid Strand of Vancouver City
College, "The main function of the advisory
board of the Bremer commission is a
sounding board for ideas of students. The
board has no input itself."
Ontario grads organize
TORONTO (CUP) — Graduate teaching assistants at the University of Toronto may soon have the right to bargain collectively if an
organizing drive by the newly-formed Graduate Assistants Association
continues to recruit more members.
The association now has over half the required 700 members to
apply to the Ontario Labor Relations Board for a certification vote.
The main reason for attempts to gain collective bargaining, according to their full-time organizer, is that graduate assistants do 40 per
cent of undergraduate teaching, yet have average wages of under $1,000
The University of Windsor is now the only university with a certified
graduate assistants association in Canada. That association has gained
a uniform wage of $2,400, the maximum allowed by law, a grievance
procedure and a voice in the department hiring committees.
He also criticized Bremer for spending too
much time in the company of faculty.
He charged Bremer's committee also
favored faculty.
Bremer's idea of having a permanent
mediator between students and government
was not well taken with students saying the
committee would become "a scapegoat".
The mediator would administer funds for
post-secondary education and make policy
for recommendations to various institutions.
National Union of Students representative
Dawn Hassett said information indicated
the mediation board would be made up of
faculty and possibly one student.
"This would put a stranglehold on post-
secondary education," she said.
Said Hassett,  "Community  colleges
should have facilities to house students who
travel a hundred miles to class. Regional
colleges have housing facilities and so
should community colleges.
"Students are trying to co-ordinate all
student services in B.C. to prevent administrations pulling the wool over students'
"Students don't always know their rights,
and with the joint student services all
students will be aware of what they are
entitled to," she said.
"Colleges are in bad shape. Some don't
even have cafeterias let alone a student
union building."
A resource committee has been set up at
the private Columbia College in Vancouver
to function as a library centre to which information may be sent for distribution to all
post-secondary institutions in B.C.
Expenses will be shared by BCASU
members for telephone duplicating and
mailing costs.

Restrictions on this motion can

faculties concerned , before

The new ruling is of special
importance to the faculty of
education which has many
students doing field work off
A motion by Roland Gray of the
education faculty "to recognize the
spirit of these rulings and as well
extend the time limit for completion of a master's degree to six
years" was defeated.
The present limit is five years
though exceptions can be approved
by the faculty involved.
Enrolment at UBC has gone up to
over 20,000 students again according to a report presented in
senate Wednesday night.
This increase reverses the trend
of the past two winter sessions in
which enrolment went down. The
present enrolment of 20,067
students on Sept. 28, however, is
still below the 20,940 students
enrolled in 1971-72.
Arts, applied science, and
education, the faculties hardest hit
by the decline of the last two years,
are, according to the report, the
ones which have benefitted most
from the increase. Total
registration in arts is up 135
students from 5,193 last year; in
sciences up 100 students from 1,325,
and in 'education up 426 students
over 2,964.
Declines in registration were
found in engineering, down from
916 last year to 858, and in the
faculty of medicine down from 460
to 400.
Cowan said he saw no need for
this as he said most students
completed their master's degree in
three years and it is possible to do
it in one year: He said he feared
extending the five year limit would
result in many students graduating
with knowledge already out-of-
date, especially in rapidly-
changing disciplines.
In other business senate received
updated figures on 1973-74 session
registration from registrar Jack
Senate also passed a report on
teaching evaluation that would
include input by students but not
students having direct con-»
sideration over the status of
faculty members.
Physical plant
wants *VR FM
UBC's physical plant and not CYVR as previously reported is
studying the feasability of turning CYVR into an FM broadcasting
But neither CYVR president Dave Clemens nor Alma Mater Society
treasurer John Wilson knew about physical plant's actions.
Clemens said Wednesday the first time he heard about the
feasability report was when he read it in The Ubyssey last Thursday.
"We weren't planning to do anything at all until next term," he said.
"Possibly they (physical plant) got us mixed up with Hamsoc,"
Clemens said. (Hamsoc, the amateur radio society is totally unrelated
to CYVR.)
Wilson was as confused as Clemens. "The first I heard about the
study was when he (Clemens) came to ask me about it," he said.
However, CYVR engineer Kevin Bonner said he has been communicating with physical plant representatives since Sept. 21.
Bonner and another CYVR engineer, Russ Braather met Tuesday
with physical plant engineers.
"We just got the study started then," he said. Bonner said the
meeting was held on the initiative of CYVR.
Physical plant director Neville Smith in a letter to Bonner Oct. 3
said his electrical engineer M. Kafen would study possible interference
from the station on teaching and research activities.
Smith said the engineer, "is investigating these possibilities and will
be contacting you (CYVR) directly when he has completed the investigation."
A spokeswoman for Smith said the department would not comment
on the continuing investigation until it is completed. "We don't know
when it will be finished," she said.
Meanwhile, Bonner and Braather are waiting for a letter from RCA
giving a firm estimate on the cost of the proposed transmitter. Bonner
said he met with RCA's sales manager in September.

Audience behind
Contemporary trends in music are leaving their audience behind,
an eminent musician said Friday.
Guiither Schuller, president of the New England Conservatory of
Music in Boston, told 150 persons in the music building recital hall the
masses must be educated.
"We must recognize that the audience is only remotely aware of the
various techniques that have been innovated over the last 20 years," he
said. "We have too many musicians. We must now build an audience or
we'll remove ourselves to our ivory towers."
Schuller laid the blame on educational institutions for not making
contact with all forms of music available to the students.
"Modern technology makes the current ignorance inexcusable," he
Referring to current trends Schuller said contemporary music is
facing the problem of digesting and assimilating the innovations of the
last twenty years.
"We are not so much in a period of experimentation as in the fifties
and sixties, but in a period of synthesis," he said. "We are satiated with
experimentation for its own sake."
The modern composer faces the problem of which technique to
choose from, he said. "The young composer says: 'My God, I already
have nineteen techniques to choose from, now let me look at them',"
Schuller said.
"Beginning in the 50s a composer would be enthroned and
dethroned approximately every three years," he said.
Charting the variety of trends of the past 20 years, Schuller said
first in the trend in contemporary classical music was Schonberg,
working with twelve string compositions.
In 1965 John Cage, a jazz musician, worked with improvisatory
techniques based on total freedom then composers became concerned
with multi-media effects.
In the 60s Xenakis, a Greek composer, introduced a music based on
mathematical principles. The next step was computerized music.
"We have come to our senses and the dust is beginning to settle," he
said. "We have had enough experimentation and are now trying to
grapple with all these techniques."

10% discount to UBC students
By JAKE van der KAMP
The B.C. Housing Management Commission,
which operates under the same exemptions from the
Landlord and Tenant Act as UBC's housing department, feels itself bound by the Act whereas the
housing department does not.
The Act exempts residential premises funded by
public money from its rent increase and subletting
A spokeswoman for the Housing Commission said
Wednesday "we certainly abide by all the provisions
of the Act from which we are not exempted and feel it
does regulate us.
"The reason we are exempted from the rent
increase provisions is our accommodations are
rented on a wage to income scale. Residents pay a
percentage of their wages, whatever they may be, not
a fixed rate.
"Rent is paid on a monthly basis and we assess
our rent in this way because most of our residents
have a low income," she said.
The housing department currently demands the
entire rent for a term before it begins.
UBC housing head Les Rohringer said Wednesday charging monthly rent would have a bad
effect on UBC's residences.
"We need to be assured of a constant occupancy
rate to maintain residences, and if we encouraged
people to live there for only a short time, as we would
by charging only a monthly rate, we would lose
money," he said.
Rohringer also said leaving residence under the
Landlord and Tenant Act would be more difficult.
"At the moment we demand 30 days notice if a
student is leaving and if he is leaving for reasons of
illness, eviction from residence or leaving university
we only require three days' notice," he said.
"If we came under the Act, we would be forced to
demand 30 days' notice irrespective of the reasons for
leaving," he said.
The student housing pamphlet, however em-
phasizesone month's notice is required in writing and
refund of residence fees will only be authorized for
the reasons Rohringer gave. It mentions nothing
about giving three days' notice.
Rohringer was asked why students would leave
residences more easily if they came under the
provisions of the Act especially since the restrictions
on leaving would be tightened up.
Said Rohringer: "Charging one month's rent at a
time would attract students who only wanted to live in
residence till they found a place somewhere else, and
then someone who was serious about living in
residence might have to wait. We could also find
ourselves with an empty room which would of course
cost us money.
"But if a student is in serious financial difficulties
he can pay on a monthly basis by giving a promissory
note to the Finance Department," he said.
"I think that coming under the Landlord and
Tenant Act would depersonalize relations between
the Housing Department and the students,"
Rohringer said.
"In any case, if we came under the Act, all the
services we now supply, such as those of the dons, and
resident fellows would be suspended," he said.
Rohringer said he has asked his lawyers for a
written statement clarifying how residences were
affected by the Landlord and Tenant Act following a
story in last Thursday's Ubyssey on residence rules.
Dave Bray, secretary of the Place Vanier
Resident's Association said Wednesday he felt there
were advantages and disadvantages to the Act.
"You can be evicted on 48 hours' notice and the
law states that can't be done," he said. "But if a guy
does something really obnoxious I want him kicked
"The rules on payment of rent don't bother me,"
he said.
Someone who is pressed for money can get a
deferment through the Finance Department, he said.
"Most people in residence are happy with the
way things are," said Bray.

GUEDO ... hero for UBC?
The University of Saskatchewan
Huskies came up big in the second
half to defeat the UBC Thunderbird
football team 44-14.
A touchdown on a fumbled punt
recovery by UBC's Mike Cleaver
gave, the Birds the spark they
needed to get untracked when they
were behind 13-0 in the second
quarter. Behind the inside running
of Bruce Grist the Birds scored
another major and with the convert took the lead, until the third

Players speak
about habit
Losing is a habit easily acquired and hard to shake.
The UBC football team know, they've got it.
They played a fine second quarter Saturday, turning a 13 point
deficit into a 14-13 lead. Then they lost whatever they had found.
The Birds said that they felt they were beaten cleanly by a fine
"We were flat in the second half," said running back Bruce Grist.
,. He said when a team has a losing history like UBO, defeat finds ways of
Offensive guard Mike Cleaver said, "We don't expect to lose but it's
always at the back of your mind because everyone else expects it.
"You meet people the day before a game, they say, 'well, you're
going to get beat again', and it makes it hard to keep your spirit up.
Then you get here and there aren't any people in the stands and that
doesn't help either."
Flanker Bill Baker agreed. He said, "Just like some teams have a
great winning tradition, others can have a losing tradition."
This can affect players who come later he said. "We were flat
today, but when a team's got a winning tradition it sometimes helps
carry you. But when you join a team that's always been a loser and
0   everyone expects it to go on losing, it seems to do just that no matter
what you do."
Grist gave an example from Saturday's game. After moving well in
the second quarter the ground attack bogged down. "The holes were
still there," said Grist. "The linemen did a fine job of opening them up
but we just couldn't hit them."
Cleaver said that the Huskies didn't seem to hit hard or play
aggressively. However, in the second half they took everything away
from the Thunderbirds.

opened fine holes throughout. The
line's weakness was on the
execution of the passing plays,
where the Huskies burst through
on more than one occasion.
During the second half the Birds
found things bogged down. The line
continued to play well, on the run
but the runners couldn't find the
holes. The passing game was nonexistence. The Birds, lacking
bench strength, had no where to
turn. The offense was hopelessly
gummed up. The situation was not
helped by the defense's inability to
acquire any sort of field position.
Defencively in the first half the
Birds were very strong, hitting
hard and stopping the Huskies time
after time. Their persistence
rattled the Huskies into taking a
number of stupid penalties in the
waning moments of the first half.
Then the roof fell in during the
second half. The Huskies, aided by
quick whistles and questionable
officiating, grabbed the initiative
with a vengeance.
The UBC defence now played
horrendously.   They   displayed   ^—
tackling which would  not have
been acceptable in a touch football
Saskatchewan quarterback,
Dave Pickett, came up hot. He hit
Larry Giles and John Konihowski
for 16 completions in 16 attempts.
Konihowski caught 10 for 184
yards, Giles 6 for 158.
Bright spots for the Birds were
Grist, Cleaver, Bob Spinder, and
defensive back Ten Hon Choo.
Spinder is the 18 year old backup
quarterback to Jim Tarvis.
Spinder started his first game on
Saturday, displaying a lot of
potential and poise, and should be
an adequate replacement for
Tarvis next year.
The anemic team passing total of
only 18 yards cannot be blamed on
him. His only mistake was to throw
to his receivers, they can't catch.
But he was hitting them in a bad
place, the hands.
On the whole, despite the score in
the last two games, the Thunderbirds are improving. Changes
in personnel have improved
coverage on punt returns, the
cause of four touchdowns in the two
previous games.
Punting has gone from nothing to
fair. Punter Don Cameron appears
to be quick enough to at least get
the kick off and prevent costly
losses on bad snaps.
What is needed is a complete
offense. But when there are 11,000
men on campus and only 63 turn
out for the football team what do
you expect.
T-bird head coach, Norm
Thomas, said the defence was the
biggest problem in the second half.
He hopes to counter the lack of
quickness and height in the
secondary by moving Bill Baker
from flanker to free safety. Don
Cameron will go from the offensive
backfield to linebacker. The 195
pound Cameron does the 40 in 4.7
seconds^ thus adding both size and
quickness to the defense. Hopefully
these changes will give the defense
the consistency they need to
prevent those fourth quarter letdowns which have lost won games
this year.

Juan comes, the other goes
In Chile the government of Salvador
Allende has been overthrown while in neighboring Argentina Juan Domingo Peron has
regained power after seventeen years.
These two facts are not as unrelated as
they might at first appear. Both are the
manifestations of current political trends in
South America.
In Chile a Marxist government is deposed
by a coup led by rightist elements within the
country's armed forces. A similar coup 17
years ago deposed Peron.
In Argentina, however, neither the
military, nor the civilian governments they
supported, were able to rule the country.
Peron's popularity remained untarnished
throughout all those years among the
masses of urban workers, and peasants.
The military were eventually forced to
capitulate to the strong Peronist element
and allowed the Peronist party to contest the
elections. It was no surprise to anyone when
they won.
Even less surprising was the resignation
of the elected Peronista president Hector
Campora to allow Peron himself to run for
The political situation in Argentina
remains chaotic. Kidnappings continue to
occur on a large scale.
Many of the kidnappings are done by
common criminals who use the name of the
Marxist movement, Ejercito
Revolucionario del Pueblo.
In the last two weeks two prominent
Peronistas have been murdered in Buenos
Aires. The murderers are suspected of being
members of the ERP.
As a retaliatory measure Peron has
declared the movement illegal. In fact
Peron has declared all-out war on Marxist
revolutionaries who act outside of the law in
order to obtain change.
In an interview which appeared in La
Nacion, an Argentine newspaper, Peron
stated that all guerillas will be persecuted
without mercy.
"For me all criminals are common
criminals. For them we have the police, the
courts and the prisons," declared Peron.
The future of Argentina is uncertain.
During his last tenure as president, Peron
steered Argentine politics on a nationalist
rightist course, swinging public opinion
against the country's left wing.
Today Peron is surrounded on all sides by
Copper constitutes the foundation of the
Chilean economy, and all segments of
Chile's political spectrum were in favor of
Allende's move to nationalize the industry.
Peron in Argentina is planning to steer the
opposite course from that of the Chilean
junta. He has announced he plans to ensure
that foreign corporations pay their dues for
whatever they take out of Argentina.
The greatest threat to Peron lies within
his -own Peronista movement. The
movement has gone through several
changes in the 17 years Peron spent in exile
in Spain.
Using nationalism as a base the
movement has incorporated within its ranks
ALLENDE ... now dead, but once had the support of millions
rightist military dictatorships. Chile was the
only Latin American country that until
recently was trying to establish an essentially different socio-economic system in
South America.
The Chilean experiment failed. Its failure
dealt a death blow to all those espousing
democratic Marxism in South America.
The horror stories of the repression being
In Chile the military junta is wasting no
time in ridding the country of all those who
actively supported Allende while he was
The number of people executed varies
according to the source. The junta claims
there were only 244 casualties as a result to
the coup. Foreigners returning from Chile
after   the   coup   claim   the   number   of
carried out by the military junta in Chile
have added considerable credibility to the
arguments of the radical leftists who
espouse armed revolt as the only means to
power. These people believe that only
through a temporary repression will a
Marxist government be able to survive in
Latin America.
Many of the political exiles from Chile are
fleeing into neighboring Argentina. At the
moment they are being allowed into the
country, but what awaits them there
remains to be seen.
executions are up in the 400 bracket.
In a sense the numbers are irrelevant.
What is clear is the junta is going to rule
through fear, as it has failed to obtain any
significant measure of popular support.
In order to revitalize the economy the
junta has announced it will turn to foreign
investment, which will be predominantly
American investment.
The status of the nationalized copper
industry will however remain unchanged.
The government will retain 51 per cent of the
POVERTY . .. common in South America
widely divergent elements. Extreme
rightist and extreme leftist will not be able
to co-exist within the same political party
for long.
The youth of the party leans to the left, to a
greater extent than their elders ever did.
Peron is important for all these people as
a figurehead with which to seize political
power. Now that end has been achieved, the
differences within the movement will
become accentuated.
Allende in Chile had similar difficulties in
trying to rule with a coalition of the left. To a
large extent it was the divisions within his
own governing group that precipitated
Allende's downfall.
Allende had to contend with various leftist
doctrines governing the manner and time in
which certain agreed ends were to be implemented. Some elements within his
government felt he was going too fast,
others were pushing him to go still faster.
Peron's problem will be to reconcile ends
which have nothing in common and in some
cases are diametrically opposed.
