 Towers closed to public
The Vancouver park board has decided to close Towers Beach to the
public so its controversial erosion control project can proceed.
Park board superintendent Stuart Lefeaux said Wednesday the beach
was closed Monday night when a board meeting passed a beach closure
"The board has decided the work must proceed," he said. "The beach
is being closed for the safety of the public."
Lefeaux said signs will be posted near the beach. He would not say if
the RCMP will be called to enforce the closure. But he admitted the
board has been in touch with the RCMP.
Park commissioner Art Cowie
said Tuesday the board will send in
the RCMP if necessary.
"Everyone's looking for a battle I
Cowie said he is disappointed
with people involved in the protest.
"When they lose in a rational,
public discussion they should be
prepared to accept the decision,"
he said.
"I'm not going through it again.
"I don't care if (the project) is
done this year or next year but it's
got to be done," he said.
Corporal Al Hutchinson of the
University RCMP detachment said
Wednesday police will only act if
they receive a direct complaint.
"Things like this are sensitive,"
he said. "You're not dealing with
criminals, you're dealing with
citizens who are concerned with
the ecology."
The detachment received, a
hand-delivered letter from the
park board Wednesday night informing it that under a provincial
statute the board is closing the
beach to the public. The letter did
not make any request for RCMP
Hutchinson said he did not know
what authority the park board is
working with. "If we receive a
complaint we will just go down and
assess the situation," he said.
"If there is any question of the
legality of the closure we refer it to
a higher authority."
A spokesman for the wreck

reaction is "absurd".

around the bend on this one," he

unending insight to
Cowie confident on UEL park
By JAKE van der KAMP
Vancouver park board chairman
Art Cowie said Wednesday night he
is confident the University Endowment Lands will be retained as
a park.
Cowie spoke to a crowd of about
500 at John Oliver High School
during a public meeting sponsored
by the endowment lands regional
park committee.
Cowie, a member of The Electors Action Movement which
dominates city council, said there
is a real need for wide open spaces
like the lands in Vancouver.
"I know it's going to be a large
park," he said.  "I just  have  °
feeling that's what will
because people want it."
But Cowie admitted the need for
housing is also imperative and
suggested some parts of the UEL
could be retained for housing.
"Why not build in the parking lot
at UBC," he ^aid. "I would even
sacrifice parts of the golf course."
Cowie said he would accept
higher density housing in the
Dunbar-Point Grey area to save
the endowment lands.
In answer to a question from the
floor he said this would not
necessarily complicate Vancouver's traffic problem.
"If we logically plan on higher
density housing and open space we
can logically have rapid transit
and we won't need cars," he said.
"We're not being terribly
realistic if we expect to live in
single family houses in this city."
Cowie said what Vancouver
needs is large parks and linear
spaces such as walkways and
bicycle trails.

leaders are urging large turnout at today's 1 p.m. demonstration
anyway in their fight to preserve Vancouver's last natural beach.
Another speaker at the meeting,

Association aldermanic candidate
in the 1972 civic elections, said he

parkland in Vancouver is even
"The need for living space is
dramatic because our natural
amenities attract other
Canadians," he said.
Kennedy proposed building
houses on the slopes of the
mountains surrounding Vancouver
to alleviate the housing crisis.
"We are flatheads," he said.
"When the flat land has gone
forever we shall be forced to do
what we should be doing now, that
is, intensive research on the
techniques of building low-cost
housing on the foothills.
"Other civilizations have had to
learn this lesson. Apparently the
affluent society never thought of
it," he said.
Bowie Keefer, a Point Grey
resident active in trying to
preserve the lands in their natural
state, said the endowment lands
form only one per cent of the area
designated for urban use in the
Greater Vancouver area. He
suggested having the required
housing built in the North Vancouver area.
Keefer said Stanley Park, tHe
only large park in Vancouver, is
restricted in use because its only
entrance is blocked off by the
downtown area.
"We have politicians making
statements about the endowment
lands but they don't move around
and see the lands," he said.
There were a large number of
hecklers at the meeting protesting
the high cost of housing in Vancouver and recommending the
endowment lands be used immediately for housing.
The Vancouver New Democratic
Party area council set up a tent
outside the school with signs on it
which said: "People need houses
and houses on the west side too."
However, the dominant feeling of
the crowd at the rally was that the
lands should be preserved as a
Snide remarks various speakers
made at the hecklers were applauded by practically everyone. Page 2

Picky examination sought
Council tables brief
AMS council voted Wednesday to
table for one week a graduate
students association brief on
university reform. Some councillors, including treasurer John
Wilson, said they would prefer to
examine the brief point by point
rather than grant blanket approval.
The brief, the result of five
months study by the coalition on
university reform, a committee of
students and staff set up by the
GSA, proposes the UBC board of
governors and senate be united
into a unicameral body.
The brief proposes the new
administrative body be composed
of equal proportions of elected
representatives from faculty,
students and community and staff.
The brief also proposes students
be granted equal representation
with faculty at a departmental
level and that the government
guarantee by law equal access to
education and employment for
women and men.
"I don't think we should endorse
the brief as a packet Wilson said.
"I think we should examine it point
by point."
For example, Wilson said, "I
think a unicameral body would bog
things down."
Grad studies rep Steve
Mochnacki agreed the brief was
not perfect but said its main thrust
should be supported.

Minor change only for Rec group
A sub-committee examining the
structure of the Recreation UBC
steering committee has recommended only minor changes to the
controversial body.
The sub-committee was set up
Feb. 25 after the chairman Ed
Gautschi resigned in the face of
Alma Mater Society dissension
over operation of the administration-run Rec UBC
Seven of the 11 members of the
policy-making committee are AMS
appointees and the society council
had ordered them to vote to
replace Gautschi.
The sub-committee was mandated to suggest ways of making
the steering committee more
responsive to students but before it
could submit its report two committee members — AMS presidentelect Gordon Blankstein and
treasurer-elect George Mapson —
resigned claiming they don't have
time for the committee.
The report to the steering
committee Tuesday recommended
that next year's committee consist
of 12 persons. Four of these would
be appointed by the AMS, of which
preferably no more than one was
an AMS councillor or executive
member. The remaining four on
the committee would be members
of Recreation UBC elected at the
organization's annual meeting in
October of next year.
The Recreation UBC director
would sit on the committee as a
non-voting member. •
The sub-committee skirted the
main issues by recommending the
setting up of sub-committees to
examine financing of the program
and improving the public image of
the program on campus.
Mapson and Blankstein who had
been prominent critics of the
committee and especially chairman Gautschi, who they said didn't
follow committee directives, both
resigned at the Feb. 27 council
Mapson said he resigned because
he was unable to attend a sufficient
number of meetings to be an active
member of the committee.
"The steering committee was a
high priority thing, but the intra
murals program of which I am in
charge had precedence," he said.
He said he would not be involved
in running the intramurals
program next year and if he has
time he. would rejoin the committee then "if they'll have me

have enough time to attend the
"I don't think the president, or
any AMS executive for that
matter, should sit on committees,"
he said.

night the best way to abolish the $5
Rec UBC fee would be a student
Barb Morris, physical education
school representative on council
and a steering committee member,
said the administration has flatly
refused any request that it absorb
any additional cost of Rec UBC's
$20,000 program now financed by a
$5,000 administration grant and
$15,000 from its 3,000 members.
Morris said the administration
also claims it is too late to abolish
the fee for next year and said in
any case the steering committee
hasn't the power to do it.
Morris said the best way to get
rid of the fee for the 1975-76 term
would be a referendum asking
students if they want the fee.
"What's our alternative?" she
said. "The administration won't
pay for it."
Morris later admitted, however,
that a referendum would be
ineffectual because the administration wouldn't be bound by
"If we don't pay the fee they'll
just close the doors," she said.
Morris also presented the outline
of the steering committee's
restructuring to council.
"We admit we're kind of messed
up right now," she said.
"Hopefully we'll do better."

Studies Association rep on council,
suggested council establish a
committee to study over-all
athletic financing.

Architecture students start off for downtown.
Downtown school urged
By JAKE van der KAMP
Architecture students held an anti-trek to
the Vancouver art gallery Tuesday to
publicize their drive to have the architecture
school relocated downtown.
About 70 students, dressed up and carrying
placards and balloons, took part in the anti-
trek. They marched from the Lasserre
building through SUB and down University
Boulevard where they packed a downtown
Once downtown, the students held a
demonstration in front of the Birks building
protesting its imminent destruction and then
proceeded to the art gallery.
Outside the main entrance of the art gallery
they laid a plaque "dedicated to the anti-trek
for the relocation of the school of architecture, University of British Columbia, to
a place of greater interaction with the people
of this city, Tuesday, March 5, 1974."
Architecture classes will be held in the art
gallery until the end of the term.
The students have put together a show at
the art gallery entitled 28 years of the West
Coast School, different roles architects
played, then and now. The display features
models, photographs, drawings, a relief map
and a wooden structure which defies
Anti-trek organizer Sean McEwen, said in
an interview Tuesday architecture students
want their school relocated because they have
very little to do with the university and want
to study in the environment in which they will
later be working.
"It's an attempt on the part of the students
to show that we want to interact more with the
people downtown," he said.
McEwen said the concept of what architects should do has been changing.
"Architects used to design buildings the
way their clients wanted but now there's
much more concern about designing them in
a user-oriented way," he said.
"The programmatical design field of social
sciences has had a fantastic input in the
concept of architecture."
McEwen said architecture students are
concerned about designing buildings which fit
in with the environment.
"Architecture is the prq/ession which has
the greatest interest in caring for the environment," he said. "The developmental
process is in the hands of people who have no
concern for the environment."
The school's director, Henry Elder,
resplendent in a top hat and a large bow tie
said the opinion of the trek in the school is
fairly unanimous.
"Everybody agrees architecture should be
involved in the city," he said. "We've been
anxious to move downtown for some time
But he said he did not view the anti-trek as a
serious protest, only as a "bit of fun".
A flippant attitude was evident in a speech
which McEwen made at the art gallery.
. "It is our dreams, of green-clover, honey-
blossomed fields and blue skies of ever-
burgeoning life, dreams translated into art
and art into life and life into art that we will
one day slay the ogre of the bourgeois demon,
the malfeasance of the corrupt official, and
throw all of these cheating and extorting life
destroyers into the pit of their own privy
stink-hole shit-laden abyss."
The speech was well received.
The Great Trek, from which the anti-trek
takes its name, was held in 1922 to try to get
the government to give funds for the building
of a university on Point Grey.
Administration president Walter Gage who
took part in the Great Trek was not available
for comment on the anti-trek.
However, Gage has made it known that he
would like to see all the functions of the
university except for the school of medicine
take place on the campus.
Education minister Eileen Dailly
said in the legislature Feb. 20 the
government will decrease the ratio
to 17 to one in three years. The
^current ratio is 21.5 to one.
Reaching this goal will mean
nearly doubling the number of
education students graduating,
according to education dean John
Calam said the entrance and
graduating requirements will not
change under the expanded
program but added that unless the
government gives more money the
enlarged program will consist only
of larger classes and restricted
Education students can get their
teaching degree either by taking
one education course every year
along with their regular studies or
by taking one year of education
courses after earning a degree.
The current requirements for
entering the one-year program are
a major with 15 units of third or
fourth year courses in one
specialty and an average of more
than 65 per cent.
The application deadline is June
30 after which applicants will be
Calam said applicants with an
average of less than 65 per cent
may be accepted by the admission
committee but these cases will
have to be approved by senate.
He said about 80 per cent of the
applicants are accepted although
the figure varies from year to year.
The highest proportion of
students to teachers are in English
and social studies, hence the entrance requirements for students
wishing to be teachers in these
fields are rigidly adhered to, he
However, he said, there is a
shortage of teachers in subjects
like home economics where only
one-sixth of the required number of
teachers graduated last year.
Entrance requirements for
home ec students may be relaxed,
he said, and an emergency
program set up allowing teachers
to get degrees in the summer and
teach in the winter.
Asked if other courses can be
taken with the one-year program,
Calam said it would be difficult
since students in the program are
required to do 10 weeks of practice
teaching away from the university.
Andrews has said he is skeptical
that his faculty can turn out enough
teachers to supply the demand if
the government's desired student-
teacher ratio is reached.
In an interview with The
Ubyssey Feb. 28, he said the
faculty would require a great deal
more money, space and
It will be difficult to fulfil these
three requirements in time, he

Sports retorts
Either students must pay the $5 recreation UBC fee or
the administration will close all campus sports facilities.
Absurd as it is, that's the choice students are given by
heavy-handed administration policy.
As a result, many well-meaning athletic types are
insisting the $5 Rec UBC fee must be maintained as if
students have no other choice.
As long as students persist in playing by the
administration's rules and trusting everything paid physical
education bureaucrats have to say, there will be no choice.
But students pay a big share of the athletics on this
campus. Not only have they contributed large proportions
of the construction costs to such campus facilities as the
War Memorial gym, the winter sports centre and the
proposed covered pool, but they pay a $5 fee to support
extramurals activities and their $24 Alma Mater Society fees
help support intramurals.
On top of this is the $5 fee for casual use of campus
recreation facilities.
Their major contributions to the costs of campus
athletics indicates students should have a major, if not equal
say in the management and use of all campus sports
facilities as well as in the determining of all athletic policies.
The administration should not be able to blackmail
students into paying an extra $5 by threatening to close
down facilities students help build.
At AMS council Wednesday it was suggested the
society set up a committee to get students involved in all
aspects of campus athletic policy.
That would be an important first step in gaining a
student voice in athletics, and in what is shaping up as a
major battle.
Unfortunately council didn't do anything — as usual.
Lot of guff
Due to recent events in the world
situation, the Americans have been
taking a lot of guff from all sides,
including the Americans themselves. Things like the petroleum
shortage, the world monetary
crisis, inflation, Watergate and
God knows what else have been
hurting the U.S.'s esteem to no end.
In Canada, particularly in
college campuses across Quebec
and Ontario, anti-American sentiment runs high. In publications
ranging from school newspapers to
birth control handbooks, the
Americans are represented as a
bunch of rich, snobbish, capitalist
bastards. Which may or may not
be true, but that's besidCIRe point.
What many people don't realize
about many U.S. citizens is that
they are basically misinformed by
the big businesses. Their government is no great help either.
On the seamy (or seamier) side,
Americans are generally ignorant.
When it concerns their own well-
being or the break up of Sonny and
Cher, then they become informed.
That is a sign of a country too used
to having its own way.

Charles Schatz
I would like briefly to express my
opposition to the latest crazy
college-kid fad referred to as
'streaking'. I am opposed on the
following grounds:
Streaking implies a violent
physical exercise known as running. The out-of-shape streaker
risks embarrassment, arrest and
possibly hospitalization;
Informal exhibitionism will lose
all social value;
Canadian content is negligible.
We already have Bomarc missiles,
Archie Bunker, women's lib and
the infamous 'b.a.';
Canada is not climatically
suitable. Streaking in Prince
George could mean frostbite,
pneumonia or even amputation;
Those of us whose vital equipment is more akin to a hamster
than a horse risk serious ridicule;
My mother would not approve.
I shall not bore you with social
comment. Let me just say that
university recreation programs
have failed miserably. Basketball,
tennis and so on are fine, but that's
not what we really want to do in our
spare time.

to students. The onus is now on the

which might concern them. They
can do so through their representatives, professors and, I hope, The

Re: Richard Noble's letter on the
moose incident in Prince George.
(The Ubyssey, Feb. 28).
The facts of that incident are
indisputable — the death of an
animal was a direct result of the
harassment of a few misguided
individuals. Few would disagree
with Noble's remarks about the
inhumanity and ignorance of those
involved. My objections however
concern his overwhelming
ignorance of Prince George itself.
"There is nothing to do except
drink beer . . . the poor moose was
a victim of a dull town . . . only a
town with such fools," and so on.
I would suggest that a group of
warped and selfish people is a
pathetic minority in the town, but
more importantly that such persons are found in every corner of
the world.
"Man's only worry is the
ignorant," an ironic statement,
from someone who clearly knows
as much about Prince George as he
does about the nature of ignorance.

Let me say that I was appalled to
read the article in the Feb. 28
Ubyssey about seagulls. Why,
these creatures are a flying
example of God's majesty; totally
oblivious of our troubled world. To
do something as despicable as to
bait hooks to catch them would in
my mind constitute a crime
against nature. I have never heard
of anything so disgusting in my
whole life. I even consider it
morally reprehensible to set out
bait to attract birds for the sake of
photography, as one of my friends
does. To take advantage of their
complete trust for mankind is
tantamount to performing hysterectomies on teddy bears. Maybe

It would be very interesting to
know how many of the beach
protestors have studied the issue
before forming their opinions.
Obviously, very few of them did.
The most recent plan to halt
Point Grey cliff erosion is an excellent one. The area of activity
will only effect the shore up to
Towers Beach and not touch Wreck
Beach. The best part of the beach,
namely the area within five feet of
the high tide line will be left undisturbed.
Many people say that the beach
is the last natural shoreline near
Vancouver. The logs cast onto the
sands create good atmosphere, but
they are merely pieces of logging
debris, and are completely unnatural.
We enjoy these beaches as much
as anyone and think that the
erosion-stopping procedures will
have little effect on its 'natural'
Hopefully the protestors will

My story
If you've come to academe to
escape the rat race you shall have
to search further my prospective
colleagues. It has to be total
disillusionment to me. Let me tell
you my story.
I dropped out of school at grade
eight some years ago because I
was too active to sit still for six
hours a day and because I didn't
like to vomit in front of my friends.
I then took an apprenticeship on
the railroads and worked there for
seven years. Many basic facts of
life emerged from this aspect of
my life: brown nosers succeed,
backstabbing is allright, cooperation is dead, competition
rules, working for Joe Blow is a
dead ender, you are going to get
walked on, nowhere is here and to
bullshit is to prosper.
Being a basically energetic sort
of person I began to formulate a
world where facts of life would do a
Where could a person walk in
dignity I asked?
Where would co-operation
replace competition?
Ahah! purity and truth — pure
truth — science seeks pure truth.
In fact pure science is the place.
Surely pure science would be b.s.
free I thought.
Surely we are all born Einsteins
and have our potential held back
by television, bubble gum and
thoughts of owning a flashy car and
making a sharp chick.
Thus I began the struggle. By
this time I was married and had a
son. Working two years straight
night shift, I went full time to high
school and finished up with $900 in
scholarships. Exhaustion nearly
killed me but I had made my entrance requirements.
Since my whole life had been
spent   as    an    avid    amateur
naturalist, I beckoned to join the
^   science faculty, to study zoology.
At last, dignity would be mine.
University was a shock. There
was no time to contemplate or be
philosophical. There was no free
intercourse of ideas. There were
only exams and more exams and
degradation and humiliation if one
failed these hurdles.
Students copied notes from each
other to meet assignment
deadlines. Tons of irrelevant
material was thurst on everyone
under        the        title        "arts
requirements". There were endless indignations. Many dropped
These unfortunate mortalities

had these people given the facts of
life early on. They aren't fundamentally different at university.
Many dropouts are truly fine

the feeling of behindness, don't
want to join the 'in' group to copy
labls, get the shakes under constant testing, can't hack the bloody
cost, want five per cent of their
youth as free time, can't read the
shitty notes three-quarters of the
profs give, hate making six trips to
the library to get one reference,
etc., etc. . . .
Now as my academic career
draws to a close, I ponder in
retrospect about the properties of

An open letter to the UBC

In first year engineering we are
obliged to take three physics
courses (155, 156, 158). Where the

professors to teach these courses is
anybody's guess.

garbage that emanates from the

Why should we pay $550 a year
tuition, some of which goes into
professors' salaries, when a $12

thing about the course?
In an institution of higher
learning like UBC, why can't there
be standards of organization and
teaching ability that a professor
has to meet before being allowed to

The move by the president's
residence advisory committee to
restore stricter living rules to part
of the single residences (The
Ubyssey, March 5), is the thin
edge of the campus reactionary
wedge.  The motion of Feb.  28,
moved by women's athletics head
Marylin Pomfret and acting dean
of women Joyce Searcy read as
"That, commencing 1974-75, or
barring that, as early as possible,

for men and for women, which

factors, which affect the life of
The five faculty members
present voted as a block in favor,
the three single students voted
against, while in a splendid act of
student "solidarity" the two
married representatives abstained, thus allowing the motion
to pass.
The main argument in favor was
that students need a wider choice
of lifestyles. If the faculty members of the committee are sincere
in this, at this Thursday's meeting
they will approve a motion calling
for fully co-ed living (within
quadrants) at Gage towers,
whereby the choice of lifestyles at
Gage residence will be further
increased. A survey at Gage
towers has shown that this need
definitely exists. On the other
hand, there is little concrete proof
that a need exists for a stricter
The chief problem openly
discussed was noise. It was
claimed that the student councils
in the residences were doing
nothing about noise at Totem Park
and Place Vanier. This is untrue.
Every floor decides for itself what
times are to be quiet so that people
can study or sleep, and generally
all floors institute "quiet hours" a
month or so before exams. There
would be no objection if the advisory committee recommended to
the councils that the councils
themselves institute stronger quiet
hours regulations.
If students do want a quieter
environment, then it is the
responsibility of the student
councils in the residences to
provide this. A survey conducted at
Totem Park last term showed that
residents were overwhelmingly
against restrictions on visiting
hours, while a large majority
favored controls on noise. The
council has previously left this up
to the floors, but on Monday I shall
introduce a motion at the joint
meeting of incoming #nd outgoing
executives at Totem Park to
restrict noise from Sunday through
Thursday in the evenings. At the
same time it will be proposed that
we totally reject the proposals of
the president's residence advisory
Let's face it, advising is not what
this committee is concerned with.
It wants to tell residents how they
must live, and the faculty members are more concerned about
visiting hours (read sex) than
about   noise.   They   assume   the
university should exercise control
"in loco parentis". The proposal
that two or more houses at Vanier
or Totem be converted to a stricter
regime is very dangerous, for it
implies that strict "in loco
parentis" control of students' lives
by the university is permissible,
even if only in one part of the
residences. I contend that all
students, once at the university,
must be treated as adults by the
university, and that "in loco
parentis" control cannot be
exercised, no matter whether it be
optional on the part of students.
Students should also be free from
demands of their parents on how
they should live.
In the end, the advisory committee is just that — advisory. The
lifestyle in single residences is
directly governed by the single-
student residences co-ordinating
committee consisting equally of
housing appointees ultimately
responsible through the director of
residences to president Walter
Gage, and of elected representatives responsible to resident
students. Life in residences is
determined by those who live or
work in the residences, and not by
outside faculty members.

For Asian library
Surprise money
donated  Grads!
The UBC Asian studies library
collection has found a new source
of funds.
And, said head librarian Basil
Stuart-Stubbs, the $75,000 grant
from the Andrew Mellon Foundation of New York was totally
"I can only assume that the
foundation recognized that we
have one of the strongest collections of Asian material in
Canada," he said.
The foundation, described by
Stubbs simply as "one of those big,
wealthy American philanthropic
foundations", explained in a letter
to him in January that the grant
was one of several made to a
"select number of universities in
the United States and Canada to
enable these institutions to increase their library resources in
support of east Asian studies.
UBC's east Asian collection of
over 170,000 volumes, the majority
written in Chinese and Japanese, is
the largest in Canada, he said.

Aid fund
for dodger
A defence fund is being
established for an American draft
dodger living in B.C. who returned
to the U.S. for his father's funeral
only to be arrested by an FBI
agent, a UBC English professor
said Monday.
Peter Taylor, a close friend of
social worker and arrested dodger
Alan Kelly, said the fund will be coordinated through Kelly's employer — the B.C. Association for
the Mentally Retarded — which
will send money to a central
organization in Iowa.
Kelly was arrested Feb. 15 at his
Rock Island home by an FBI agent
who is a friend of his family. Both
attended the funeral at nearby
Fort Dodge, Iowa.
Taylor said the fund raising idea
was initiated by Kelly, who faces a
possible $10,000 fine or five years in
jail when he returns to face trial
June 11.
Kelly said he received a massive
number of phone calls and
telegrams pledging moral and
economic support to his cause.
A spokesman for the Mental
Health Association said he did not
know how much money has been
received so far.
Taylor said funds for the "Allen
Kelly Defence Funds" can be sent
to the B.C. Association For the
Mentally Retarded, 119 West
Pender, Vancouver.
• The money must be spent
within three years;
• It must be used to purchase
material covering a broad range of
subjects and interests within the
general area of Asian studies;
• It must be used to supplement
but not replace money already
allocated for the purchase of Asian
The Asian studies portion of the
total library budget would normally be approximately $20,000,
said Stubbs.

collection is currently awaiting
transfer to the new Asian centre
now under construction at the
north end of the campus beside the
Fraser River parking lot.
Money to cover the cost of
building the basic structure of the
centre has been donated by the
Japanese government, Japanese
industry, the Canadian government, the B.C. government and
private donors.
The centre should be completed
in two years if the university can
raise additional funds to cover the
rest of the cost of construction.
