Array 'New act won't affect UBC
Real change or reform in UBC's
power structure is unlikely when
the provincial government amends
the Universities Act, UBC deputy
president William Armstrong said
"I don't think there's any way we
can change things. That's the way
the report is written," Armstrong
told a hearing of the university
governance committee at UBC.
Armstrong, a member of the
committee, was referring to their
controversial working paper
released last October.
The committee, formerly
chaired by education commissioner John Bremer, heard
briefs Tuesday and Wednesday
from UBC students, faculty,
alumni, and the New Democratic
Party's education committee.
In general, the five committee
members disagreed with students'
offers help

arguments for a unicameral
university government, with equal
representation for student, faculty
and community members.
"It would be unwise to propose
elaborate legislation like you want
to," committee chairman Walter1
Young   told   student   representa
tives. "I'm not sure members of
the legislature will be competent to
get that deep into the university
structure," he said.
Young argued with Sue Wendell,
of the women's action group, about
the unicameral structure's merits.
"How representative would the
unicameral body of students be if
the only students on the body would
be the ones willing to take a year
off," said Young.
Wendell answered: "Politicians
are not typical citizens."
"I was hoping you'd say that,"
said Young.  "Have you  thought
about the validity of the analogy
between the political community in
general and the academic community in the sense students aren't
citizens and the faculty doesn't
relate to citizens."
Wendell then replied: "There
are interest groups in the
university. It is in the interest of
students to have the best facility
for studying and teaching at the
university. It's the interest of
faculty members to build a
scholarly reputation for the

2 slates finish nominations
By JAKE van der KAMP
Two complete slates for the
Alma Mater Society elections
Wednesday have handed in their
nomination forms and two other
slates will probably have them in
before the nomination deadline at
noon today.
The Progressive Student
Alliance, a left slate, is concentrating on providing an intellectual atmosphere on campus
and changing students' role in
"Student government should
initiate intellectual and political
activity on campus," the slate's
Rag jeopardizes
'VR broadcasting
CYVR president Bill Nicholson accused The Ubyssej!*(Vednesday of
jeopardizing the radio station's chances of continuing to broadcast in
"I don't know how it could jeopardize our application," Nicholson
said, "but The Ubyssey story draws attention to whatever is happening
*9 out here and forces the regulating body, the Canadian Radio-Television
Commission to take action."
"We now have to have our application in by the end of January. We
might have to pay a broadcast consultant engineer to do a technical
feasibility study," Nicholson said.
Later Wednesday, Alma Mater Society council reversed itself and
decided to permit CYVR to continue to broadcast to residences.
Council called a halt Jan. 19 to the carrier current broadcast because
such an operation requires a license from the Canadian Radio-
Television Commission, which CYVR does not have.
Nicholson said CYVR stopped its carrier current broadcasting
platform statement says. "Up to
now the AMS government has done
little about students' role in
education. It can and should help
students understand the university
and how to use and change it."
Specific points of the group's
platform include opposing
discrimination against women and
ethnic groups, lobbying with the
government for academic reform
and promoting discussion of
political social and cultural issues.
Running on the slate are: David
Empey, arts 4, president; Pemme
Muir, nursing 3, treasurer; Peter
Hlookoff, grad studies, secretary;
Jennifer Fuller, nursing 1, coordinator; Sharon Stevenson, arts
4, external affairs officer; and
Cheryl Stephens, lav; 2, internal-
affairs officer.
The students' coalition, a service-oriented group also has a slate
nominated but has not yet released
a platform statement.
The slate was almost split
Tuesday night, when current AMS
secretary George Mapson, running
for treasurer, considered standing
as an independent. He asked Muir
to run, also as an independent, with
the understanding he would run for
president and she for treasurer.
But Muir refused, saying she
preferred to stay with her slate and
it was too late to change.
Running for office in the
Students' Coalition are: Gordon
Blankstein, commerce 5,
president; George Mapson, grad
studies 1, treasurer; Duncan
Thomson, commerce 1, secretary;
Doug Brock, arts 4, vice-president;
MUIR ...
happy with PSA
Lyn Orstad, arts 2, co-ordinator;
Gary Moore, commerce 2, external
affairs; and Joan Mitchell, arts 2,
for internal affairs.
Action Slate, a third group
running for office is interested in
providing only services of direct
benefit to students.
The platform for the slate,
described by its members as
progressive non-doctrinaire left is
primarily concerned with improving existing services on
campus and increasing contact
between the AMS executive and
the students.
Specifically it proposes relieving
difficulties in finding student
housing both on campus and off
campus, preserving the University
Endowment Lands in its natural
state, strengthening undergraduate societies by decentralizing the AMS and supporting
women's rights.
The group also wants to see the
administration fund sports instead
of the AMS.
Running on the slate are: Steve
Mochnacki; grad studies 9,
president; Charlene Moriarty,
science 3, vice-president; Dave
Plackett, grad studies 9,
treasurer; Glen Nicholson,' law 1,
secretary; Evy Gillespie, rec 3, coordinator; Ed Searcy, arts 3, external affairs; and Marlee
Trischuk, rec 3, internal affairs.
Also running a slate are the
Young Socialists, but campus
affairs are only peripheral to their
platform. They want to reject the
Bremer commission's working
paper on university governance,
end discrimination against women,
and open Canada's doors to
Chilean refugees.
As far as the campus is concerned they want to see the
university run in the interests of
movements for social change.
Running in the slate are: Coreen
Douglas, arts 3, president; Stuart
Russell, arts 2, vice-president; and
Kathleen Ball, arts 4, external
affairs officer.
By Wednesday night there was
only one nomination for ombudsperson. Roy Sarai, commerce
1, is running for the position. Page 2

employees, Simon said.
Equally important to most
professors, however, is the whole
question of "professional integrity," he said.
"To a manual worker that means
'keeping the supervisor off my
back.' To a professor that means
being allowed to do things his way
— to teach his course without a lot
of administrative interference.
"There is no national plan for
organizing faculty members. But
what is happening is that we're
getting calls from various
universities expressing interest in
joining CUPE," Simon said.
So far UBC has not been among
them but "queries are always
welcome," he said.
CUPE is currently working to
win collective bargaining rights for
the 170 professors at St. Mary's
University in Halifax. Organizing
drives are also underway among
some 500 faculty members of the
trade and technical schools in
Other university faculties that
have indicated interest in joining
CUPE include Queen's, Red Deer
and Winnipeg, said Simon.
CUPE already represents more
than 6,000 faculty, maintenance
workers and clerical workers at 20
universities in Canada.

Wendell said the act should
provide student representation at
the departmental level.
"Students should be represented
through their undergraduate
societies — groups which are open
to all students," she said.
Graduate representative
Ariadna Krause said the graduate
taculty should be eliminated
because it "tends to isolate you
from the organization which
makes the decisions. When it
comes down to the hard facts, as a
graduate student you are still a
student," she said.
Other briefs from the faculty and
alumni associations were similar
to each other. Both requested
continuing the present bicameral
system but with slightly stronger
senates and a central governing
body. They requested two students
be elected to a larger 15-member
UBC board of governors. The
board currently has 11 members.
Student senator Svend Robinson
presented the NDP party brief,
which also requested an
unicameral system. In an interview later he said he felt the
commission considered his
presentation fairly.

A copy of this advertisement is being posted in each Department together with a list of the members
of the constituency of the Department. The lists of those students in First and Second Year are
available for checking in the Office of the Registrar.
Students wishing to take part in the election  are urged to check that their names are on the
appropriate constituency lists and that their local mailing addresses are correctly shown.
For the purpose of this election Arts students in Third and Fourth Years and in Graduate programs of
the Faculty of Arts who are not registered in association with any particular Department or School of
the Faculty should contact the Registrar's secretary in order to determine if it is possible for them to
be included in a constituency.
Please note that recent changes put through to the Registrar's Office may not have been processed at
the time this election material was prepared. Therefore, it is still necessary to advise the Registrar's
secretary if your name does not appear on the appropriate list with the correct address since the
mailing labels to be used match the lists you are being asked to check.
Ballots will be mailed out within a few days of the close of nominations.
The term of office for those elected now will be from the date of the election until replaced. There
will be an election for the 1974-75 session in October, 1974.

Students cut dean's office to size
Students and faculty disagree
about science dean George
Volkoff's new office.
Orian Varley, student
representative on the users
committee of the new biological
sciences wing, said Wednesday the
office in the planned wing will be
too large.
Varley, honors zoology 4, said
the office will have about 2,000
square feet of floor space which
Volkoff won't give up. "This
could be considereed excessive
when labs, which are what the
wing is_for, are having -space cut
because costs are over-budget,"
said Varley.

Tests show no food poison
On the basis of one stool specimen recent
laboratory tests have indicated food poisoning was
not the cause of a mysterious illness which swept
through Totem Park residence two weeks ago.
About 200 students were bedridden in Totem Jan. 8
and 9 from what UBC health officials now believe was
a flu epidemic. Tests were conducted in provincial
government laboratories in Vancouver.
The results of the tests, however, were based
solely on the analysis of a single specimen obtained
from a student who returned one of four specimen-
collecting kits distributed among the 200 sick students
by Wesbrook Hospital officials hoping to obtain a
respresentative sample.
Testing on the lone specimen has proved completely negative for any infective organisms, said
Wesbrook nursing supervisor Kathleen Boyle.
Evidence of food poisoning, had it been present,
would have definitely shown up in the test result, she
However, Jack Campbell, head of UBC's
microbiology department, said the test results of the
single stool may be inconclusive.
"I don't generally deal with pathogenic organisms
but as an educated citizen basing conclusions on one
specimen just doesn'J seem reasonable."
Boyle said it would take another six weeks of
testing to determine if the epidemic was due to a flu
virus or not. Even then, the cause of the flu virus
would not be known, only the fact that it was flu.
Boyle said the possibility of a carrier kitchen
employee initially spreading the illness is remote.
She also said it was impossible to speculate on the
carrier theory because she was unfamiliar with the
Totem Park kitchen staff's health conditions before
the epidemic.
have a large enrolment. The old
labs are crowded and need this
space badly."
Associate science dean C. V.

"The committee ok'd the office
from the very start and we've had
no complaints about it being too
"In fact, the office's floor space
was recently cut to 1,600 sq. ft. and
is smaller than Volkoff's current
office in hut 0-11, which is 2,300 sq.
ft.," he said.
"The dean's office will also be in
an unfinished area and, generally,
has received low priority all
along," he said.
Varley and Leilani Almas,
honors zoology 4, said the office
will be large in relation to the
wing's total floor space. Varley
estimated the total space as 40,000
sq. ft.
Finnegan and zoology prof P. A.

problem, but were unable to supply
any figures.

Bremer's firing
won't affect gov't
Provincial education commissioner John Bremer's firing
will not affect the government's
response to the university
governance committee's final
report, its new chairman said
Walter Young, University of
Victoria's political science
chairman, made the comments
following his first public appearance as the committee's new
chairman. He said education
minister Eileen Dailly reassured
him the committee's work would
not be lost when she appointed him
chairman Jan. 17.
"We will now report directly to
Dailly instead of through Bremer,"
Young said.
Bremer was officially axed Jan.
14 after Dailly said he talked too
much and Premier Dave Barrett
called him "a bit of a failure."
In an interview with The
Ubyssey Young, who until last year
was head of UBC's political science
department, gave his views on the
committees progress so far and his
personal opinions on what should
be done with the Universities Act.
He said the act does not
respresent the actual political
reality in B.C.'s three universities.
"It's really illusionary to
assume one can generate a particular legislative structure for the
university," he said. "The act
provides a framework for the
university." He said within the
framework individual components
like boards of governors and
senates must be able to operate
He said he agrees with the
committee's preliminary report, —
released last October — when it
says "the committee is reluctant to
propose changes which penetrate
too   deeply   into   the   internal
structures and responsibilities of
the universities."
Young said legislation should not
determine the structure of individual departments and faculties
even though he said they have
great power.
When Young was at UBC two
years ago he spoke against student
representation on departmental
committees. He supported an arts
faculty meeting motion to adjourn
in Nov. 1972 when faculty members
found the room packed with
students pressing for representation.
Young discounted student
proposals for a unicameral
university governing structure.
He said he studied the University
of Toronto's single governing body
and found it didn't work.
"You've got seven decision
making groups (in Toronto). Who's
going to make the decisions — an
executive committee?" Young
The reason for having a bicar-
meral system is having the work
and responsibility divided."
"Our initial premise is if you
divide the responsibilities as well
as making them more clear you
will have a better structure."
"The university is not a substitute for the House of Commons.
Students in particular tend to be
bulking it much larger than it
really is. The university is 'one
other thing' to which one can direct
his energy. It's simply one alternative," he said.
Young said his committee would
report directly to Dailly after it
completes hearings in April. He
said the earliest possibility for
legislation would be in  the fall.
Young said he expected the
government to regard the brief
positively but "the final decision is
always up to the cabinet."
Women's movement uses devious means
The   women's   movement   in
Vancouver is not  against  using
»   "devious   means"   to   get   information.
The image of women liberation-
ists as lobbying females hammering for legislation tells only
half the story — what appears in
the press is "pretty tame", says
Nora Randall, Vancouver
Women's Bookstore member.
« But one day, she said, when it's
*"safe" the women's movement
will tell all.
Randall was speaking on the
evolution of women's liberation in
a panel discussion sponsored by
the women's office.
Held in the SUB ballroom
Tuesday night to a small
predominantly female audience,
the panel was moderated by Fran
Isaacs    and    included     Gene
UBC organizer
Errington from the Status of
Women council and Jean Rands, a
UBC staff member and organizer
of the Association of University
and college employees.
In a reminiscent mood, yet
aware of questions facing the
women's movement today, each
panelist spoke of her own personal
experiences. "It has taken a long
time and a lot of courage for us to
have our own movement," said
She said, "we can't organize
ourselves just as women" as past
experience proved too many
diverse opinions and backgrounds
resulted in no action.
The movement may benefit
more by diving into groups where
someone says "this is what I think
is important and anyone who
agrees with me is welcome to
Errington called for agreement
over the general direction of
various women's groups. There is
conflict between one side advocating a movement to enable
women collectively to solve their
problems while another side sees
the movement as a support group
for each woman to solve her own
Errington, who represented
what she called the moderate wing
of women's liberation, said the
Status of Women council provides
an ombudsperson service for any
woman who believes she is
discriminated against in any
aspect of her life.
It tries to appear before any
commission interested in women's
However, governments
sometimes make "token gestures
which they feel  is  supposed  to
satisfy us". Although "this table-
thumping and political action at
times begins to feel as if it gets
nowhere," Errington said it was
not without effect.
Standing up for women's rights
is sometimes impossible, Randall
"Some things are so subtle that
there is little we can do."
She said employer
discrimination is an example
where in some cases "there is
nothing we can point to and say —
this is how it happens."
Rands said employees trying to
unionize at UBC is probably the
best thing that has happened to
working women.
"As far as I'm concerned, what
we're doing here at UBC is what
women's liberation is all about.
"We can do it ourselves, if we do
it together." Page 4

A Canadian Union of Public Employees spokesman
says his union is willing to help organize UBC faculty.
Given the attractiveness of the deals won by their
unionized counterparts in other parts of Canada, as reported
in our page 1 study, UBC's faculty may take CUPE's offer.
A union would shift the power from stuffy old
heavies at the top of the faculty who currently run things to
the general massof professors. It would mean job security
for professors hassled for their innovative ideas and politics.
It would mean the old boy system which now
dominates the administration side of the university could be
broken up by organization among professors. i
To the degree that unionization would shift some,
power from the hands of the administration to the faculty
we support moves to organize UBC faculty.
A strong faculty union could mean students would be
unable to play a part in selection of faculty heads, tenure
and course planning as is their right.
This should not be seen as an argument against
student support of faculty unions — the sort of position
which plays into the hands of the administration.
A strong faculty union would have to be balanced
with increased student union organization.
Then in the case of any jurisdictional dispute, the two
could deal as equals. And in cases of mutual interest, a
strong faculty and a strong student union could much more
effectively handle the administration which currently holds
the power.
Vaughn Palmer's article on the
alleged split in the leftist alliance
(The Ubyssey, Jan. 18) fails to
provide an accurate appraisal of
the events of last week.
The article erroneously refers to
"preliminary attempts to establish
a left-wing coalition". The fact is
that by Tuesday night both the
slate members and the policy had
been ratified by the majority of the
students present at the left-wing
alliance meeting.
Neither Stefan Mochnacki or
anyone else chose to dispute the
decision of the majority.
A feeling of satisfaction and
solidarity with the slate prevailed
among all present. However
between Tuesday and Thursday
Mochnacki contacted The Ubyssey
to determine their (sic) level of
support for the slate, as well as
contacted some slate members and
other students in an attempt to
form a separate slate. Finally on
Thursday Mochnacki attempted to
force a confrontation between
himself and the slate.
Palmer's article implies that
Mochnacki had student support
backing up his grievances. In fact
quite the contrary was true.
Mochnacki stood alone in his attack on the slate's personnel and
its policies on Thursday night.
Although Palmer chose to use
the word "we", no "we" existed
outside of Mochnacki's
imagination. Mochnacki is
reported to have said "We can't
work with them". However it is
Mochnacki alone who refused to
co-operate with majority decisions
of the leftist student alliance. The
article, rather than seek to achieve
journalistic accuracy, regresses
into exploring Mochnacki's personal paranoia of being associated
with communists.
Palmer, rather than discourage
red-baiting and slander against
communists, perpetuates the
myths and attacks directed against
leftist groups.
At the meeting, members of the
alliance questioned Mochnacki
about the nature of his grievances
against specific slate members.
The only reply we received was a
hysterical retort against the red
scourge and a list of stock evils
resulting from association with
communists. Mochnacki publically
claims to desire a non-doctrinaire
leftist slate to fight the students'
coalition. The members of our
alliance also desire the same.
The  practice  of  the  left-wing
student alliance has proven itself
to be honest and conciliating at all
times. The practice of Stefan
Mochnacki has been to slander
slate members and to subversively
seek to undermine the solidarity of
the slate.
The only destructive element in
our alliance originated from
Stefan. At the Thursday night
meeting, even though Mochnacki
sought to stack it by bringing in a
large number of acquaintances,
the majority decision was to
continue on our established basis of
Thursday night repeated the
expression of solidarity with the
individuals and slate as was witnessed on Tuesday. The only
divisiveness originating from the
group was centred on Mochnacki
and Mochnacki alone. In lieu of the
true nature of the events, The
Ubyssey has proven itself once
again to be primarily concerned
with reporting the spectacular and
consequently failing to achieve any
degree of validity in its articles.
The article by Vaughn Palmer
was centred on the bizarre
phenomena of red baiting.
Hopefully in the future greater
discretion will be demonstrated by
The Ubyssey. We also hope that
they (sic) will seriously consider
the implications of printing the
ravings of an hysteric.
The leftist student alliance fully
intends to run a slate in the forthcoming student elections. The
slate will express our. original
intent of fostering co-operation on
the left.
Through the spirit of continued
honesty and solidarity we will offer
to the students at UBC a responsive
and responsible student government.

Your attempt to discredit the
bearer of bad news ignores some
key facts.
1] Mochnacki, touted as the
presidential candidate of a major
campus political group in the
upcoming Alma Mater Society
elections, sought out a Ubyssey
reporter Thursday and told him he
had quit the slate. He said he did it
because he felt the slate was
dominated by communists.
The Ubyssey printed this
statement of Mochnacki and a
denial from Brian Loomes, a
member of the group, that
Mochnacki's  charges   were  true.
2] Mochnacki claimed that
others would follow him off the
group. We printed this, though
clearly labelling it as a claim on
Mochnacki's part [he used the
word "we"] and including Loomes'
denial that anyone but Mochnacki
had quit. You ignore the fact that
Friday two other members of the
slate, including the candidate for
treasurer also resigned. Given
that, it is difficult to see how
printing of Mochnacki's charges
was irresponsible or even inaccurate.
3] Throughout the story The
Ubyssey represented the opinions
and claims of Loomes that
Mochnacki was in fact,
"hysterical", and several of the
quotes printed certainly indicated
that was the case.
4] Mochnacki and Loomes later
indulged in a vigorous' argument in
The Pit, in front of someone who
they both knew was a reporter. The
argument would have given even
the most inattentive bystander the
impression that there was a split in
something. The article did not
report the many sensational
charges hurled about in the heat of
that conversation. Had it, the
charge that the story was sensational might have had credence.

An open letter to
Shelagh Day
For some time now I have sat
back and watched various
women's groups hurl names and
accusations at the forestry undergraduate society. All the while I
have said little; very probably
because I felt in some ways their
complaints were justified.
There are two things, however,
which have forced me out of my
The first is that I am beginning to
see the policies and practices
within the forestry faculty being
greatly manoeuvred by a grand
total of three or four people. This to
me is a grave injustice considering
the total student enrolment
numbers around 380 students.
The second is that I now consider
these names and accusations as a
personal affront. Because of the
activities of women's groups I am
tagged by many people as a stupid
sexist when my faculty becomes
known to them. Even if it were true
I would rather people decide this
for themselves and not assume
such a thing.
Let us go on, then to clarify a few
of those fine things you (Day) said
Monolithic media?     Nooooo.
about my faculty to education
minister Eileen Dailly at the
Young New Democrats Conference
on Jan. 12.
You began by calling the forestry
paper, The Plank a 'stupid, vulgar,
sexist document'. I agree that four
articles were in poor taste but the
rest of that publication was equally
divided between constructive
articles and harmless gibberish. I
picked it up, read it once, and
threw it away. Why couldn't you?
Are weapons that hard to find that
you have to still flog this one? A
dead horse is a dead horse.
You say that the women who
'very quietly' complained about
this publication have 'had a very
hard time in their faculty' ever
since. Seeing as I and many others
have totally forgotten this incident
some time ago (until you
resurrected the dead horse) I do
not understand how these women
could still be teased about it.
I find it surprising that you
complain about the Playboy
foldouts in the FUS office to Dailly,
a person who can do absolutely
nothing to change the situation. No
woman on the FUS council has
considered this issue important
enough to even mention it in
council meetings where this
situation can be effectively Jealt
As to the issue of the graduate
woman who quit the faculty: that is
a personal matter upon which I do
not wish to comment.
You told Dailly that 'the five
women who are to graduate this
year have not been able to find jobs
so far'. Why didn't you also tell her
that of an entire graduating class
of 60 only three did have jobs? At
present, two of the five women
have accepted jobs and the other
three are awaiting offers. That's
an employment rate of 40 per cent,
which I can assure you is equal or
better than that of the male
segment of grads.
I myself have not received an
offer as yet. If I don't get one I,
unfortunately, cannot fling back
my head and yell 'sexual
discrimination'.No, I will be forced
to accept the cold hard fact that no
employer thought I was capable of
working for him.
Finally, Ms. Day, before I sent
this letter to the editor I circulated
it to the five graduating women you
took the liberty of representing. I
asked them if they agree with what
I have said above. They did.
Unanimously. They did not ask you
to represent them and, furthermore, do not want you to
represent them.

Conference told
Additives cause
ga-ga symptoms
Some chemical food additives
can cause schizophrenia, birth
defects and epilepsy, the chairman
of the Scientific Pollution Environment Control's pesticide
committee said Wednesday.
Merriam Doucet made the
comment in a debate on processed
foods and food additives with D. G.
Chapman, director of the Food
Advisory Bureau in Ottawa at
UBC's nutrition conference.
"A misconception of some people
is that the chemical residues can
be washed away when actually
they can't," Doucet said. "Even
though some farmers stop using
certain types of chemicals, these
can and do stay in the ground and
come into our food even after 20
years." She said some of these
chemicals are linked to birth
defects and diseases such as
schizophrenia and epilepsy.
However Chapman disagreed on
the harm of food additives.
"Some food additives are
necessary to replace the
nutriments lost by processing
modern food, but we only allow the
necessary levels to technologically
do the job."
Said Doucet: "What I'm trying
to point out is that we don't know
what's in our food.
"At one time it was safe to have a
little of these chemicals in our
bodies. Over time these build up so
that it is no longer safe to take in
any more chemicals."
Chapman replied that Canadians
Pool refunds
illegal — Wilson
Alma Mater Society treasurer
John Wilson told council Wednesday $5 pool fee refunds being
offered to graduating fourth year
students are probably illegal.
Speaking to a motion to provide
similar refunds to graduate
students who will graduate this
year, Wilson said refunds are
illegal because no mention of them
was made in the 1972 referendum
which approved the $5 student levy
to finance the covered pool.
"But council approved the
refund because it was in the spirit
of the advertising urging students
to approve the referendum,"
Wilson said.
Wilson said referendum advertising had promised that no one
who would graduate before the
pool completion date, set for 1975,
would have to pay the fee.
Wilson said he supports a similar
rebate for graduate students who
won't be here when the pool is
completed, because it is in the
same spirit, although technically it
be illegal unless approved by
But AMS vice-president Gordon
Blankstein opposed the motion
saying there was no way it could be
done without a referendum.
Blankstein said graduate
students weren't included in the
terms of the referendum advertising.
Council decided to hold off on the
grad students' rebate until lawyers
clarify whether or not any refund
of the pool fee is legal without a fee
Council also set Feb. 28 as the
final rebate application deadline,
assuming it is legal. They also
agreed to mail the repayment to
any students who apply.
are protected by government
regulations such as the Food and
Drug Act.
He said the act allows no
"poisonous or harmful substance
or one which is unfit for human
consumption" to be put in our
But Doucet said chemicals are
given the same legal rights as
humans: innocent until proven
"It is not incumbent upon the
public to prove that a chemical is
dangerous, it is incumbent upon
the government Who is supposed to
act for us."
The crowd was generally in
favor of Doucet's opinions and on
several occasions applauded after
she struck out at the food
processing industry.
One participant at the conference said, "We wouldn't need
these things (additives and
pesticides) if we grew food
properly." However the participant did not elaborate.
Conference organizer Les Rose
said he put the series of meetings
together because he felt "people
are becoming more concerned
about learning about nutrition."
He said he hopes the conference
will help people sort out contradictory information about
healthv eating.
CIC chairman sees
ownership increases
Foreign ownership in Canada
has doubled in the last ten years
and will continue to increase, Mel
Hurtig, Committee for an Independent Canada chairman said
Speaking to about 150 students in
the law library reading room,
Hurtig stressed the need for unity.
"The time has come for all
nationalist-minded people in
Canada and all political parties to
band together," he said.
If this is not done, within five or
ten years the parties will no longer
have an opportunity to choose
between a social democratic or
free-enterprise state — Canada
will no longer exist as a sovereign
state, he said.
"Parliament should pass
legislation forcing all' foreign
corporations to be 51 per cent
Canadian owned within five years
and putting an end to further
growth of foreign investment," he
He discounted fears of economic
and military reprisals by the
United States: "Canadians should
stop being so timid. Would they
stop buying our lumber?"
Hurtig used Canadian bank
advertisements in foreign
newspapers as examples of how
Canada is being needlessly sold. A
Royal Bank advertisement in the
Wall Street Journal showed a dog
team crossing New York's Fifth-
Avenue with the caption: "We
deliver Canada." He also showed a
Toronto-Dominion Bank advertisement in a Paris newspaper
bearing the words: "We're happy
to be accused of un-Canadian
Hurtig said the B.C. government
is the only one in Canada beginning
to approach the problem of foreign
investment. Some of their work
shows very encouraging signs, he
Stock market drop
no harm to Uof T
TORONTO (CUP) — Even with a 20 per cent drop in the Dow Jones
average on the stock market, University of Toronto business officials
were laughing all the way to the bank as the university investment
portfolio showed gains last week.
The market value of the Endowed Funds Investment Pool rose to $28.8
million as of Oct. 31 compared to a value of $27.8 million July 31, which
reflects a 3.6 per cent increase, according to documents the business
affairs department released.
The pool consists of about two-thirds bonds, almost a third stock
shares and less than two per cent mortgages. The mortgage money
outstanding is about $200,000. U of T has a mortgage plan for faculty
With a keen eye to interest rates, some of the money is being shifted to
bonds with shorter maturity dates "providing an important hedge
against a decline in interest rates and any decline in long-term bond
The total return during the three-month period was five per cent when
the market value increase and interest were combined.

Skiers edged out of first
UBC skiers were edged out of a
first place win in the National
Collegiate Ski Conference meet at
Crystal Mountain, Wash. Saturday
and Sunday.
The Thunderbirds took second
place in combined team points
losing out to Alaska Methodist
University whose easy victories in
the cross-country events were
bolstered by firsts in the men's
slalom and giant slalom contests.
The meet was the second of three
northern division qualifying meets.
UBC took first place in the first
meet a week earlier.
UBC's Dan Irwin and Ron
Ozanne couldn't quite match
AMU's John Spencer's giant
slalom run, but Irwin took second
and Ozanne third in a field of 40
In the slalom, Spencer was once
again the man to beat but neither
Ozanne, who finished second, nor
Bruce Goldsmid, third, could turn
the trick.
UBC's women skiers took top
team honors in their slalom and
giant slalom events and Thunderette Monica Sloan took the top
individual women's title for the
second week in a row. She went
home with the title Ski Meister for
the meet after winning a first in
Swim team
wins five
in tri-meet
The UBC men's swim team won
five out of 11 first places in a tri-
meet against the University of
Puget Sound and Portland State
Saturday in Tacoma, Wash.
Team captain, George Smith, a
former member of the Canadian
Olympic team, led the way,
churning to victories in the 200
metre individual medley and 200
metre breastroke as well as anchoring the record breaking 400
metre medley relay. Smith, who
also swam under Doc Counsilman
on the famous Indiana University
team, was in a serious motorcycle
accident two years ago. Since then,
he has made a steady comeback
and is once again making waves in
aquatic competition.
Other victories came from Rich
Gustavson in the 100 metre
freestyle and newcomer Robert
Kell in the 200 metre butterfly.
Coach Jack Pomfert said he is
extremely pleased with the
progress the team has shown.
"We've been training at St.
George's pool five days a week,
two hours a day and we're coming
along real well." Apparently, the
swim team is not letting the lack of
their own indoor pool facilities
keep them down.
On Sunday, George Smith,
competing in the Northwest
Amateur Athletic Union championships, placed first in the 200
metre individual medley, fourth in
the 100 metre freestyle and sixth in
the 100 metre backstroke.
UBC's women team also competed in the Northwest Championships Saturday and Sunday. Pat
Gilmore was particularly outstanding, placing second in the 100
metre backstroke and fourth in the
50 metre freestyle, 100 metre
freestyle and 200 metre
backstroke. Jeanne Warren and
Karen James swam well too, but
pale next to the powerful Gilmore.
However, for the record Karen
James placed sixth in the fifty
metre backstroke and 200 metre
individual   medley.
both giant slalom and slalom and a
fourth in the women's crosscountry event.
Pam Aiken, of UBC, took thirds
in both the alpine events and ninth
in the cross-country where 27
It was AMU skier Marianne
Duberow who kept Aiken out of
second place in both downhill
The Alaskans had no trouble
staying out front in the crosscountry events. Their five entries
in the men's event took the top four
spots and a sixth allowing only
University of Washington's Bruce
Richards entry into fifth place.
The three Alaskans in the
women's cross-country contest
finished one, two, three with UBC's
Sloan tied for fourth with Linda
Winslow of the University of Puget
Coach Goldsmid was gloomy
about UBC's chances for crosscountry honors as long as the
Alaskan universities are setting
the pace.
"Cross-country skiing is a way of
life for Alaskans. It's not just a

Buff visits campus
Not enough done
in changing bias
Not enough serious effort has
been made to eliminate
discrimination at UBC, Kathleen
Ruff, B.C. Human Rights Commission director, charged Wednesday.
At a meeting with UBC administration president Walter
Gage and academic planner
Robert Clark, chairman of the
president's committee on
academic women, Ruff criticized
both the administration and the
committees investigating the
status of women at UBC for failing
to make any great progress in
changing the various instances of
sexism on campus.
"It has been a year since the
Report on the Status of Women at
UBC was published, and little
action has been taken since then,"
she said. "This indicates a certain
indifference or inertia on the part
of the administration."
"There should be someone
specifically employed to take the
responsibility in insuring there is
. . . complaints valid,
no      discrimination      against
women," she said.
Ruff told The Ubyssey she cited a
particular instance where she
Uof A radio wants
city FM licence
enthusiasts are preparing for a
new experience in FM radio entertainment.
The University of Alberta
student radio, CKSR, hopes to
broadcast with an FM licence to
the Edmonton area by March, 1975.
The new FM station, accessible
to anyone with an FM radio, will
provide a variety of musical and
documentary programming. It will
be at least partially subsidized by
the U of A Student Union but
program manager Dave Wright
said he is hopeful other sources, in
particular advertising, will
provide most of the revenue.
The FM concept is not a new one
for student radio. Several
universities across Canada operate
FM stations including the
University of Saskatchewan at
CYVR, the student radio at UBC,
has a two-member committee
investigating the possibility of
broadcasting on an FM band.
Members of the current Alma
Mater Society executive have
expressed interest in the plan.
However the station can no
longer broadcast on its AM band
because of a change in CRTC
CKSR currently provides a
limited closed-circuit service with
speakers in the student union
building and in a few lounges
scattered throughout the campus.
Assorted music can be heard from
10 a.m. to 11 p.m.
The CKSR executive is
preparing an application to be
presented to the Canadian Radio-
Television Commission in early
February. Approval or rejection of
the application is expected in June.
Station manager Jim Austin
expects no difficulty obtaining the
necessary approval from the
The next step will involve purchase and installation of new
broadcasting equipment to meet
CRTC standards. Directing and
production staff, announcers and
operators will then be hired and
trained. Although the present staff
is mostly volunteer, the FM staff
will be entirely paid.
A market feasibility report for
the FM station was prepared for a
marketing course in the fall, 1973
semester. One item of the report
was a survey of the musical
preferences of different age
groups. The under-18 age group
heavily preferred rock music, but
the 18 to 26 group and older groups
indicated no strong preference.
According to CRTC principles,
FM stations must serve a widely
varied selective audience who can
select their musical preference at
specific times. CKSR-FM will
attempt to serve all tastes in rock,
jazz, blues, country, folk and
classical music. The present
personnel at the station are heavily
jazz-influenced in their musical
CKSR-FM will broadcast seven
days a week from 7 a.m. to 2 a.m.
Financial matters were also
discussed in the marketing study,
but Wright suggested that the
report will be taken "with a grain
of salt".
The financing of the FM station
will be of crucial importance to its
existence. CKSR sought an FM
licence three years ago but the
student council of 1970-71 rejected
the expense of additional funds for
the station. It is doubtful the
present Students' Union, already
beleaguered by a sizeable deficit
from a union-sponsored housing
project, could absorb a large
deficit from an FM station. This
problem has been recognized and
an in-depth financial study will be
prepared. It will look at revenue
possibilities in the hope that the
. station can become financially
found job advertisements
discriminatory to women posted at
the student placement office.
"There were several ads calling,
for example, for 'a bachelor of
commerce, male', and 'a bachelor
of psychology, male' ", she said.
"It has been four years since
provincial regulations were passed
prohibiting employers from lending their premises to
discriminatory ads."
Student placement officer Cam
Craik said all discriminatory ads
would be discontinued as of noon
"We work carefully to be legally
correct in the office," Craik said.
"But she (Ruff) was following
the new Bill 100, which was passed
in the legislature on Nov. 13, but
has not yet been promulgated."
"According to my reading of the
old act, it is the employer whose
responsibility it is to avoid
discriminatory practises as
identified in seven or eight different categories," he said. "The
new act puts part of the responsibility on us who post the advertisements."
Craik said the discriminatory
ads posted were not career offers,
but offers for part-time jobs.
"They were the kind of ads
asking specifically for female
babysitters," he said. "But now
we've removed all references to
sex. We've even taken down ads for
waitress' jobs."
"We. also have just finished
okaying a new job application card
for the office, one that does not
specify the sex of the applicant."
"The criticisms arose from the
question of whether a positive
attitude existed among people
within the university," Gage told
The Ubyssey. "It's in line with our
own feelings that we want to be as
positive as we can."
