Array Project still on—Lambrou
By SUE VOHANKA
LRS Development Enterprises
will present a design proposal for
redevelopment on the University
Endowment Lands in about 30
days, LRS president Dinos
Lambrou said Wednesday.
Lambrou said details for the
design are not and never have been
decided.
The land development company
holds options to purchase 3.6 acres
bounded by Allison, Toronto,
Dalhousie and Kings Roads.
Redevelopment would displace a
middle income community of 179
people who currently live in the
area's low-rise apartments and
row houses.
LRS secretary and barrister
William Henson told The Ubyssey
Sept. 25 the land would cost $3.7
million to purchase and about $35
million to develop.
At that time, Henson also said
the proposed development would
be restricted to high income
residents.
But in an interview Wednesday,
Lambrou said: "We didn't know
what the hell we were going to put
there. No decision has been made
on our part."
Lambrou said the firm has never
decided who "we were going to
cater to" or how many suites would
be built.
And he said he could not estimate
costs for the project. "You cannot
determine the cost of the project
unless you have made the plans.
We have no plans," he said.
In a Sept. 24 Vancouver Sun
story, Lambrou was quoted as
saying plans were for a "very
elaborate, super-deluxe residential
development."
But Lambrou told a Ubyssey
reporter Wednesday: "You're the
first one (reporter) I've talked to. I
haven't talked to anyone else.
"The Sun and the Province
wanted to make an unpleasant
issue out of the whole thing. It
doesn't bother me because I've
never stated anything."
The Ubyssey had repeatedly
tried to contact Lambrou since the
development proposal was first
publicized last month, but was
unable to reach him until Wednesday.
NDU to close
for symposium
Students, faculty and staff at
Notre Dame University will close
the campus at Nelson, B.C. Friday
to protest their lack of involvement
in the university's future, the NDU
student president said Wednesday.
Andy Shadrack said the
university will hold a one-day
symposium in an effort to arrive at
a common front concerning the
education department's plan to
transform the campus into a
satellite of B.C.'s coastal
universities.
"The idea is to find out if
Kootenay people want what the
government has proposed,"
Shadrack said. "We don't want the
Housing?
What's all this about a housing
shortage?
A month ago, everybody, it
seemed, was looking for 24 square
feet of floorboard to plunk a
mattress down on. But now
everybody seems settled. What
was all the panic about?
What indeed. Mark Buckshon

(education) minister to just drop
something in our laps.
"People don't want to see a white
elephant arise in the place of
NDU."
Shadrack said input from the
northern campus into NDU's
transformation, announced by
education minister Eilleen Dailly
last spring, has been ignored.
-People at NDU are tired of
submitting briefs to the education
department, which are ignored, so
they have agreed to hold the
symposium out of frustration, he
said.
The'institution replacing NDU in
the plan proposed by the education
department would offer degree
programs from the coastal
universities.
However, Shadrack said no one
from Notre Dame has had input
into this plan because of a lack of
concrete proposals from the
department.
"You can't throw bricks at a
vacuum," Shadrack said.
Shadrack estimated about. 500
people would attend the Friday
symposium.
"Maybe we will come up with
something the minister will approve for the new institution," he
said.
"I've been travelling a lot," he
said.
Lambrou said the proposal is
"still at the investigating and
designing stage."
"We've had several discussions
in principle for what would be best
for the area. There was no specific
plan or development proposal at
this time made to the authorities,"
he said.
"We had some original ideas
about it that were not in any way
welcomed by the endowment lands
(manager Bob Murdoch) and the
government," Lambrou added.
Pacific Press held up
Union typesetters at Pacific
Press stopped work Wednesday
afternoon after an International
Typographical Union member was
fired for refusing to handle a Sun
editorial from new computerized
production equipment.
Early today it was doubtful that
the two editions of the Province
would be published.
There were also indications that
the first edition of the Sun would
not hit the streets.
But the Ubyssey learned that the
union and Pacific Press, which is
owned by both papers, were close
to an agreement mat would allow
later editions of the Sun to be
published.
Mediator Ed Peck, a Labor
Relations Board vice-chairman,
was called in after Gary Anderson
refused to paste up a Sun editorial
typeset on video-display terminals,
the first step in the new electronic
production system.
Other ITU members dropped
their tools to support the fired
employee.
"That's part of ITU laws —
there's no discipline other than
firing," said Pacific Press general
manager Dave Stinson. "That's his
(Anderson's) own union laws."
ITU representatives have been
meeting with Pacific Press since
February in attempts to work out a
dispute over who has typesetting
jurisdiction under the new system.
Stinson said the Province was
using secretarial staff in an attempt to put out today's Province.
"We're attempting to get the
copy into the (electronic) system
— we're trying to put a paper out,"
he said.
"They're just a few people doing
work they normally wouldn't do,"
Stinson said.
Norm Pearson, deputy minister
for the department of lands, forests
and water resources, which is
responsible for the UEL, said Oct.
9 he- didn't think a development
scheme would go ahead.
He told the Ubyssey in a
telephone interview from Victoria
that the provincial government is
amending the land use code to
prevent demolition of existing
buildings without a permit.
"It is highly unlikely that any
development would occur in accordance with the code as it
stands," Pearson said.
He also said the chances of
existing buildings being torn down
and replaced with another
development are "extremely
remote" because the economic
return would be "extremely
marginal."
Lambrou admitted that
development cannot occur until
LRS and the government agree on
a proposal.
"If we don't have a meeting of
minds between the authorities and
ourselves, the development won't
go ahead," he said.

Controls bring confusion
By LARRY HILL
and
GREGG THOMPSON
There's a lot of confusion at UBC
over whether the federal government's wage and price controls
apply to contract negotiations on
campus.
UBC personnel director John
McLean thinks campus library and
clerical workers blew a 19 per cent
wage hike when they rejected an
administration offer Oct. 9.
But Dale McAslyn, spokeswoman for the Association of
University and College Employees, local l, which represents
the UBC workers, expressed
surprise at McLean's attitude
Wednesday.
"We aren't sure whether or not
we will be included under this new
policy," she said.
Meanwhile, spokesmen for both
the administration and the faculty
association say they do not know
how the controls will affect upcoming negotiations between the
two sides for a first collective
bargaining agreement.
Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau
announced Monday a plan to limit
wage increases to a range of eight
to 12 per cent, along with a
program  which  allegedly  would
hold down price increases by a
similar amount.
McLean said the administration
had offered AUCE a 19 per cent
wage increase Oct. 3, but the union
membership overwhelmingly
rejected the offer Oct. 9.
"We offered them a 19 per cent
increase and they turned it down,"
said McLean. "Now the government has placed a wage increase
ceiling of eight per cent. We're
going to have to make
qualifications on our pay increase
offer. It is too much now, because
of the government stipulations, but
it has to be clarified still," he said.
McAslyn said, "we aren't sure
whether or not we will be included
under this new policy. We'll have to
put our feelers out, and find out for
sure just what is going on."
Local president Emerald
Murphy agreed with McAslyn's
assessment.
"We're just not sure how the
anti-inflation package relates to
us," she said.
"No one seems to know. We've
consulted law professors on the
matter and some say we're stuck
with it and some say we're not,"
Murphy said.
She said there are anomalies in
the legislation which require
careful analysis by the union.
"We'll just have to wait and see
how it's worded," she said.
"But until that tjme, things are
just too unclear to comment on."
AUCE has been working without
a contract since Oct. 1. The administration last week asked for,
and received a mediator in the
dispute, but mediator Ed Simms
has not yet been called on to
mediate.
Law prof Charles Bourne, who
represented the administration in
preliminary negotiations with the
faculty association, said the
controls will probably mean
tighter provincial government
funding of universities.
He said the portion of the
university budget tagged for wages
will probably increase by less than
10 per cent and in that way wages
of profs will be held down.
"The guidelines are bound to
affect university wages," he said.
But he emphasized he did not
know whether profs are directly
covered.
"We are not an industry or a big
business," he said. "Not everyone
is covered."
Faculty association president
Don McRae said, ""simply not
enough was known" about the
legislation to determine how it will

Council unspends $3,500
Alma Mater Society council,
voted Wednesday to cut $3,500 from
its deficit budget after former
treasurer Dave Theessen said an
AMS fee increase referendum may
fail.
The budget Theessen presented
to council showed a $47,906 deficit
which was trimmed to $44,480.
Theessen said if this year's AMS
has a large deficit and students
reject the fee increase next year's
AMS finances will be "in very bad
shape."
CITR radio's budget was the first
to be affected by the tight new
budget policy. Council voted to

BCSF sells $3,000 in
advance lottery tickets
The B.C. Students' Federation has
sold $3,000 worth of advance tickets
for its winter lottery on B.C.
campuses, BCSF staffer Glenn
MacKenzie said Wednesday.
He said student unions and clubs
at five B.C. post-secondary institutions have bought large
numbers of the tickets to sell after
lottery ticket sales begin Nov. 1.
Vancouver Community College,
Capilano College, Malaspina
College, B.C. Institute of
Technology, B.C. Vocational
School and Okanagan College have
all agreed to sell lottery tickets.
The lottery will help finance the
BCSF's current budget of $23,000.
MacKenzie said Wednesday UBC
undergraduate society treasurers
will meet Tuesday to discuss ticket
sales on campus. He said the BCSF
hopes to sell at least 2,000 tickets at
UBC, and must sell 4,000 $2 tickets
to break even on the venture.
First prize in the lottery is a trip
for two to Mexico. The draw will be
held Feb. 14, 1976.
MacKenzie said proceeds of the
lottery will supplement the money
BCSF hopes member student
unions will pay to the federation
after levying BCSF fees on
students.
Most campuses, however, must
hold a referendum before they can
charge a fee from students.
MacKenzie said the lottery money
would protect BCSF from losses
incurred if some of the student
unions were unable to pay their
fees.
BCSF decided at a September
meeting that member student
unions would pay 50 cents per
student per semester to belong to
the federation, beginning in 1976.
In addition, five member institutions agreed to provide interim financing for the BCSF until
the 1976 fiscal year begins March 1.

intramurals.
Arts rep Bruce Wilson said the
AMS is seriously underfinanced.
"This council is going very
rapidly to the point where it cannot
function. As far as I know this is
the first deficit ever," Wilson said.
Theessen said most of the SUB
reserve fund has been built up
from SUB activities profits and a
50 cents per student per year AMS
fee. He said the AMS should not
spend all of this money because it
will be needed soon to replace
furniture and to make other
renovations, including replacing
the carpet in the Pit.

NUS loses one but gains two
CANADIAN UNIVERSITY PRESS
The National Union of Students
lost a key vote of confidence from
students at the University of
Alberta but won support at two
other western Canadian universities during recent referendums.
The Alberta vote, considered an
important test for the three-year-
old organization, overwhelmingly
indicated students there don't want
to join NUS.
But NUS executive secretary
Dan O'Connor said students at the
University of Saskatchewan and
the University of Winnipeg voted to
join the national union, which is
holding its general meeting in
Fredericton starting today.
At the Saskatchewan campus,
there was a 28 per cent turnout
with 1,885 voting in favor of joining
NUS and 1,001 opposed.
O'Connor said the constitution
there requires a 66 per cent
majority to pass a referendum but
since NUS received 65 per cent
support the student council will be
able to pass the $1 per student fee
on its own.
A 20.5 per cent turnout in Winnipeg saw 299 supporting NUS with
241 opposed, sufficient under local
rules to carry the referendum.
A vote at UBC for NUS is
scheduled for later this year.
Meanwhile, in Ottawa, a NUS
request for student representation
on the Canada Student Loans
plenary group is an "inappropriate
suggestion" according to the group
chairman.
David Levin, group chairman
and direction of the federal finance
department's federal-provincial
relations division, said in an interview the subject will be
discussed at a group meeting later
this month.
But he said he personally objects
to students in the group.
The plenary group sets the rules
governing who will get student
loans and how much they will get.
It presently consists only of student
aid officers from the federal and
provincial governments, meets
annually in closed session, and
releases no information about its
discussions or activities.
"Here are a bunch of administrators - civil servants -
getting together trying to scratch
their heads on how to improve the
(student loan) program working
within the constraints they have to,
and I don't think it would help the
work we do to have students or any
other group of people involved in
our work. At that stage we're in a
different world," Levin explained.
He described the role of the
plenary as being "to arrive at
nationally acceptable standard
practices with respect to the administration of student loans" but
conceded that "administration"
included "substantive policy
matters" determining the nature
of the program.
While noting that the "bulk of the
decision-making" about student
loan policy involves the plenary
group, Levin said he sees no role
there for student representatives.
"Student organizations always
have the opportunity to make
representations with respect to
particular program changes" he
said, suggesting that NUS should
"submit a brief" if it wanted,
rather than seek representation.
Submitting briefs, he said, is
"part of our traditional way of
doing things" and stressed that it is
not usual to include people affected
by government programs in the
decision-making process itself,
citing areas of health care and
welfare policy as examples.
Student delays
U.S. picketing
By ANNE WALLACE
Poon Lam is postponing
picketing the U.S. consulate
because he fears it may prevent
him him from obtaining a tourist
visa, Dave Johnson, former Alma
Mater Society ombudsperson, said
Wednesday.
Lam, a grad student at UBC,
earlier threatened to picket the
consulate this week if he did not
receive a satisfactory reply to a
letter sent to the consul, protesting
his deportation from the U.S. and
the revocation of his student visa.
Lam's U.S. student visa was
revoked in September after he
crossed the U.S. border from
Canada illegally.
Lam claims his illegal entry to
the U.S. was caused by his
misunderstanding a border official's instruction, and says U.S.
officials have repeatedly denied
him the opportunity to appeal the
Lethe open
The Lethe, the quiet little bar
where you can get slowly hammered without anybody noticing, is
open for business again.
The bar, which sells mixed
drinks for $1, opened Wednesday
without a whimper of publicity.
The Lethe is open from 5 p.m. to
11 p.m. and is located behind the
, information booth on the SUB main
foyer. Discussions of the possibility
of moving the Lethe to a larger
room on the second floor of SUB
are still continuing.
revocation and have refused to
listen to his explanation of the
incident.
U.S. border officials say Lam
was caught several miles south of
the border, speeding south on the
freeway at 50 miles an hour.
They say there is no appeals
procedure and that all Lam can do
is re-apply for a visa and hope his
application is accepted.
Last week Johnson, on Lam's
behalf, wrote a letter to the consulate protesting their handling of
Lam's complaint and requesting
they consider Lam's case.
He said at the time that Lam and
himself would picket the consulate
this week if they had not received a
"satisfactory" answer" to the
letter by last Friday.
Johnson said he and Lam will
picket the consulate if Lam's
request for a tourist visa is
refused.
Lam said he may never use the
tourist visa, but is applying for one
partly "to see what (the U.S.
consul's) attitude is right now."
But even if they give me a visa I
still want to clear up what happened in September," he said.
Lam said human resources
minister Norman Levi replied to a
letter sent by Johnson on behalf of
Lam, saying he would contact U.S.
consul-general John Stutesman
about the problem.
Lam, a Hong Kong citizen,
received his undergraduate degree
in California. He came to UBC for
grad school and hopes to complete
his grad studies in the U.S. if he is
ever allowed back in. He also has a
brother living in the U.S.
According to Levin, if students
have anything to say about student
aid, they should direct their attention to the provincial governments, not to the Plenary Group he
chairs.
"I equate students with the
ministers not with the civil servants," he said. "Where there are
basic policy issues that have to be
decided, proposals to be put forward, then students have to have
contact   with   the   (provincial)
ministers of education."
The process he favours has
student groups submitting student
aid proposals to provincial
ministers, who may decide to raise
them at the plenary group. If they
do, and if the Plenary approves the
proposal, it is then returned to al}
the provinces for approval.
Finally, if the provinces approve, it
is returned to the federal finance

Jake flys policyless
UBC's representatives to the
National Union of Students annual
conference left for Fredericton
Wednesday without a clear
council-backed NUS policy to guide
them.
A special Alma Mater Society
council meeting Tuesday, called to
establish such a policy for the
delegates AMS president Jake van
der Kamp, and Janet Neilson,
acting external affairs officer —
attracted less than 10 councillors.
No policy was set at the meeting.
Van der Kamp said Tuesday he
will take two policy positions at the
conference. One calls for a
loosening  of  age  and  residence
requirements for student aid. It is
basically a B.C. Students'
Federation position and was endorsed by council at an earlier
meeting, van der Kamp said.
He said he will also press for
more regional participation.in the
NUS central committee from
representatives of regional student
organizations such as the BCSF.
This policy was drawn up by
members of the Student Unify
party at a recent meeting of the
group, but was never ratified by
council. Several council members
expressed opposition to student
Unity policy
minister for final decision. Once
the change has been decided, Levin
said, only then could it be made
known to the students and the
public.
According to Levin's scenario,
the federal government plays only
a passive role in student loan
policy formulation, even though it
is a federal program, while the
initiative for policy development
comes from the provinces.
VCC protest
to go to
Victoria
By CHRIS GAINOR
Students and instructors at
Vancouver Community College-
will take their protest against
government cutbacks to Victoria
following a demonstration Tuesday
at a VCC council meeting.
Nearly 400 placard-carrying
students attended the meeting
where it was announced that the
provincial government had
granted funds for additional
courses at VCC.
VCC bursar Len Berg said
Wednesday the government had
granted the college $130,000 in
additional course allocations after
granting $300,000 earlier this
month.
VCC had applied last spring for a
1975-76budget of $24 million but the
education department granted the
college only $20.3 million after the
department appointed a three-
person committee to investigate
VCC's finances.
The additional funds will be used
for several courses, primarily an
English language training
program for adults at the King
Edward campus, Berg said.
"It is believed that we are suffering major cutbacks," he said.
"But in fact we are not."
But Vocational Instructors'
Association spokesman Betsy
McDonald said Wednesday, "the
cutbacks are affecting the students
and the public in a drastic way."
McDonald said the VIA, at a
meeting Wednesday, decided to go
to Victoria to present a petition
protesting the cutbacks to
education minister Eileen Dailly.
The petition currently has more
than 3,000 signatures, she said.
"The universities did not get a
major cutback but the community
colleges got a whopping cutback,"
McDonald said.
She said more money should be
spent on student programs and less
on administration costs.
When asked to comment on
recent newspaper reports of extravagant administration spending, she said, "the administration, even though it's the
cheapest in B.C., takes more than
it should from student programs."
She said the additional funds
granted recently would have been
granted without pressure from
students or instructors but, "some
of them that would be delayed are
now going ahead."
The education department
routinely grants funds for new
programs to community colleges
after their budgets are finalized.
The college administration must

Unbelievable
It's unbelievable but true.
How UBC can time after time send delegates to
conferences without clear student council policy to-guide
them is incredible.
Yet it continues to happen — the latest example being
Tuesday's poorly attended "council meeting" which was
called at the last minute especially to give instructions to our
National Union of Students conference delegates.
Now Alma Mater Society president Jake van der Kamp
and external affairs officer Janet Neilson are at the
Fredricton NUS conference.
What are they doing there?
Council certainly doesn't know.
Not enough councillors bothered to show up at the
meeting but those who did threw in their two-bits for the hell
of it.
But it shouldn't have waited until the-last minute. A
firm executive policy on NUS and a council discussion on the
subject had been scheduled for weeks.
Various AMS committees spent the summer looking
into issues such as student aid, housing and unemployment
but did these get discussed at council with a view to
proposing national recommendations.
No.
What are the implications of the reports on similar issues
done by the B.C. Students' Federation?
Who knows?
Council doesn't.
And for that matter what is the relationship (and the
relevance) of BCSF and NUS to UBC students?
More unanswered questions.
Of the two delegates UBC sent, van der Kamp has
covered various NUS issues for The Ubyssey but he's never
been to a conference. Neilson, while experienced in student
unionism, is only an interim executive member and won't be
standing for election in upcoming byelections.
Last minute choice of delegates. No policies to take
with them. It's reminiscent pf numerous NUS and BCSF
conferences in the past.
If the AMS executive wants a NUS referendum to pass
at UBC they'd better get serious, or the vote will be soundly
trounced as it was recently at the University of Alberta.
Otherwise forget it.

The Zionists on campus appear
to be disturbed by The Ubyssey's
"biased" coverage of Dayan's visit
and the opposition to it. In fact, The
Ubyssey gave rather liberal
coverage to the Zionists — a reply
from Hillel House to my article, a
lengthy interview with two Israeli
students, two articles on Dayan's
visit prior to the visit, plenty of
coverage of Dayan's speech and of
the pro-Dayan demonstration and
a great deal of space given to four
outraged Zionist letter writers.
No, it is not "biased" coverage
that upsets the Zionists; it is the
appearance of strong anti-Zionist
sentiment on campus which sends
them into a frenzy.
Of all the Zionists' letters and
articles in The Ubyssey, only one
dared to deal with my article, no
doubt because it was so well
researched by our committee. I
shall try to clear up some of the
confusion which Weintraub is
trying to spread in his letter.
The worst confusion is Wein-
traub's slander, echoing U.S.
ambassador to the UN Moynihan,
that the PLO's "reactionary and
murderous nature" is shown by the
support it receives from "oppressive and dictatorial governments" of the Third World countries. Now, if you read the Zionists'
own history books, you find out that
the Zionists always planned to
colonize (the Zionists' own word)
Palestine with European Jews.
They carried out this
colonization, and evicted or
massacred nearly all the
Palestinians in the process. Israel
constantly sends its armed forces
into Palestinian refugee camps to
terrorize and kill people in order to
maintain its illegitimate rule. The
PLO is striving to overturn the rule
in Palestine of Zionism and to
establish a democratic and secular
state there. So it is clear that
Zionism is "reactionary and
murderous" and that the PLO is in
fact progressive.
The reason that so many Third
World countries support the PLO is
that they too have struggled for a
long time against colonialism,
imperialism and racism, just as
the Palestinian people have
struggled against the colonial and
racist policies of the Zionists, aided
by the British and U.S. imperialists.
So it is no accident that Third
World countries and the PLO find
themselves on one side against
South Africa, Rhodesia, and Israel,
which are all  racist,  European
colonialist settler countries. It is
worth noting that Israel is
currently training South African
and Rhodesian police in anti-
guerilla activities to be used
against black people's liberation
forces.
The only thing in Weintraub's
letter that I agree with is that
"Necessity not choice has determined (Israel's) friendships." It
necessarily follows that only
racist, colonialist and imperialist
countries can support Israel,
because if any other country
supported Israel, it would be
supporting its own worst enemy.
Weintraub's assertion that the
jailing of Haganah members by the
British shows that British imperialism did not support Zionism
holds no water. Haganah members
were jailed at the beginning of
Second World War because  the

There had just been three years of
tremendous uprisings of the
Palestinians against the British-
Zionist plans to steal Palestine —
and incidentally, the British
recruited Haganah members,
including Moshe Dayan, to help put
down the 1936-39 revolts.
The British used their alliance
with Zionism in the 1956 war
launched by Israel, Britain and
France against Egypt to try to
regain control of the Suez Canal
from Egypt.
. Is Israel democratic, as Weintraub claims? Can a country be
democratic if it forcibly keeps 1-1/2
million people displaced from their
homes? And is it not true that
"democratic" Israel counts every
Jew in the whole world as a citizen,
but not a single evicted Palestinian
as a citizen.
Are not European Jews first
class citizens, other Jews second
class, and Arabs third class?
Emigration from Israel is increasing rapidly as people there
realize the nature of Israel.
Military checks everywhere
have made the country a police
state — no doubt out of "necessity
not choice." No, Israel is far from
democratic.
Weintraub's talk about the PLO
killing "civilians" is more confusion. These "civilians" are in the
military reserve and/or are settlers. All of Israel is a military
zone. The real terrorist actions
have been carried out by the armed units of Zionism — the
Haganah, the Irgun, the Stern
Gang, and the Israeli military.
Finally, Mark Weintraub, I am
proud to say that, yes, I favor the
destruction of the Zionist state of
Israel and the creation of a
democratic, secular Palestine, just
as I favor the destruction of the
racist Rhodesian and South
African states to be replaced by
states with majority rule there. I
look forward to the day when the
Palestinian people will have
smashed Zionism and liberated
their homeland.

Rape
Lake Sagaris should have been
more careful when she labelled the
rape crisis study as superficial in
the Oct. 10 issue of The Ubyssey.
If she had bothered to read the
report carefully or if she had
simply read the adequate but by no
means complete list of recommendations that were cited from
our report in the Oct. 7 issue of the
paper, she would have seen that
her list of suggestions nearly
matched   our   recommendations.
I was genuinely sorry to read in
The Ubyssey about an increase in
the incidence of assault and rape
on the campus since this school
year began. I sincerely hope that
the broad range of agencies that
we found ready and willing to help
women who were victims are
providing supportive services.
Perhaps the next step would be
for The Ubyssey to feature
methods of avoiding rape and/or
assault and to write stories
highlighting people or agencies
willing to help the women who are
victims. This service to all of the
women of the UBC community
would seem to be far more
productive than giving space to
Lake Sagaris to label a report she
evidently hasn't read carefully as
superficial.

World political prisoners
Beliefs are their crimes
During its prisoner of conscience week,
Amnesty International's Vancouver group
is attempting to gain the attention and
support particularly of students at the
university level. The study of the formation
of human values is essential to the work of
Amnesty and as it should be essential to a
university community, any branch of
Amnesty lacking student involvement is
missing an important contact.
In the 14 years since its foundation,
Amnesty International has been active in
combatting violations of human rights
wherever they occur in the world. Torture,
capital punishment, poor prison conditions,
unjust laws and political show trials have all
come under its scrutiny and attracted its
condemnation.
One of the most tragic and intractable
problems with which Amnesty International
as ah organization has had to deal is the
problem of long term imprisonment. Many
of the more than 3,600 prisoners under
adoption or investigation by Amnesty International are men and women who have
spent many years in detention for their
political or religious beliefs. These individuals — the truly "forgotten prisoners"
— are the kind of people about whom Amnesty International's founders were most
concerned.
Pressure
Through the use of letters, telegrams and
petitions from people as private citizens,
members of the business community or
members of Amnesty International to the
many officials of the governments involved,
and through the hiring of lawyers, meeting
with ambassadors and publicizing through
the media the prisoners' cases, Amnesty
tries to bring pressure to bear on the
prisoners' governments.
The results that Amnesty hopes for and in
many instances has achieved, are the
bringing of the prisoners back into public
view, bringing them to a fair trial,in-
fluencing their more humane treatment in
prison, (medical attention, cessation of
torture), or best of all, the release of the
prisoners.
Long term imprisonment is perhaps the
most destructive form of punishment that
can be imposed on a human being. Cut off
from society, often without access to any
news of the outside world, frequently in
solitary confinement, the long term prisoner
of conscience can easily give way to despair.
Added to this tragedy are the hardships and
financial difficulties suffered by the
prisoner's family. Amnesty International
has selected 12 cases for prisoner of con-
listed: in Spain, a young man is serving a 16-
year sentence for illicit association and
illegal propaganda in connection with the
Communist Party of Spain; in Cuba a priest
awaits the end of his 15-year prison sentence
for hiding and assisting a "traitor to the
people."

impact of long term incarceration on the
lives of ordinary people.
The cases selected cover countries as
geographically and ideaologically diverse
as Turkey and Taiwan, Cuba and Singapore,
Rhodesia and the Soviet Union. There is,
however, a depressing parallelism about the
fate which has overtaken the 12 prisoners
In Taiwan, a writer finds himself imprisoned for 10 years after a trial in secret
by military tribunal; in the People's
Democratic Republic of Yemen, a former
cabinet minister is given similar sentence
under retroactive legislation.
In Indonesia, Singapore and Rhodesia,
prisoners are held for years without any
hope   of   being   brought   to   trial   under
emergency legislation and special laws
permitting virtual indefinite detention.
In the Soviet Union, a 47-year-old woman
faces eight years' imprisonment in a
corrective labor camp to be followed by five
years of internal exile for alleged "anti-
Soviet agitation and propaganda." In
Tunisia, a young leftwinger finds that the
conditional amnesty under which he was
released in 1970 has been revoked, and he
must return to prison to serve out a 16-year
sentence for his political activities.
The 12 individuals listed by Amnesty
International for prisoner of conscience
week come from all races and backgrounds.
What they have in common is the tragedy of
long term persecution for their political
beliefs.
Prisoners
The Amnesty International report of 1974-
1975 records that as of May 31, 1975 there
were 1,592 Amnesty International groups in
31 countries and more than 70,000 individual
members of the organization in some 65
countries. There were 3,650 prisoners under
adoption or investigation by Amnesty
groups around the world.
During the year — May 1974 to May 1975 —
Amnesty International took action on
violations of human rights in 107 countries,
dispensed about 100,000 pounds (US
$240,000) in relief to prisoners and their
families, and sent missions and trial observers to 31 countries.
As well as adopting and working to find,
aid, bring to fair trial or secure the release
of political prisoners who have been unjustly
detained and inhumanly treated, Amnesty
groups research and discuss the motivations
of decision-makers regarding peace, war
and torture, and try to publicize prisoners'
cases and political incidents leading to these
problems.
By this, they attempt to not only aid
emergent situations but bring to the public
awareness of the responsibility of people at
all levels of society to work for the maintenance of human rights.

University morals
This article was originally submitted to
the Nova Scotia royal commission on
education, public services and provincial-
municipal relations by a group of faculty
members at Mount St. Vincent University.
It was written by Larry Fisk of MSVU's
political studies department. Although some
statistics may not apply to all Canadian
universities, the attitudes certainly do.
We live in a time of such social awareness
that even the graffiti scribbed on washroom
walls has taken on moral and political
significance.
One such popular scrawl reminds that
Frederick Nietszche was probably the first
to coin the "God is dead" phrase. It reads
"God is Dead — Fred" and below it are
enblazened the words "Fred is Dead! —
God."
A group of students at the University of
Alberta were recently addressed by a
speaker who entitled his talk: "The
University is dead — God."
Some of us would be prepared to argue
that in terms of matters that really count the
university, if not dead, is at least under the
serious and critical scrutiny of experts in
the intensive care unit and the present
prognosis is none too favorable.
For whatever else we may wish to say
about the youth culture (or however we
define the long term significance of a
counter-culture of cultural revolution), a
profound questioning and dissatisfaction is
in fact being expressed and changes
demanded within the university environment.
Perhaps Peter Berger's simple explanation helps us to understand. The
dominant spirit of childhood — the happy
childhood that most middle class children
share — is confronting the second most
dominant spirit in technological societies —
the spirit of bureaucratization common to
all institutions.
The carefree, protected and highly personal life of childhood confronts the highly
regulated and impersonal life of
bureaucracy first of all in educational institutions.
Social institutions such as the church or
the family, or political institutions such as
political parties may once have been the
most logical object of youthful attack, but
their significance in defining social reality
seems very much to be replaced by the
universities. Hence, the attack zeroes in on
the more recently uncovered enemy.
Berger's notion of these two dominant
spirits leaves much unexplained: For
example, why should this present
generation act so determinedly when some
of us sat so passively in lecture halls only a
decade ago? Nevertheless the above
comments do open, at least, the question as
to how the university defines social reality
and what myths are operative as the
university engages in this vital task.
The problem, as we understand it, is not so
much that the university has the power to
define social reality for us but, rather, that it
does so on the basis of very particular, if not
narrow, assumptions rooted in its present
faculty and administration and their own
professional  training;   most  of  whom
recognize the particularities of their own
myth-making.
We see three evil tendencies in university
education in Canada.
Universities seem to us to be increasingly
antipersonal, politically reactionary and
morally bankrupt.
We describe these evils as tendencies
because we do not believe all universities
harbor them to the same extent although all
halls of learning are subjected to the forces
which foster their unwelcome growth.
These forces include, we're convinced,
tightly rationalized academic traditions, the
social status of the university trained, the
effect of large buildings and the maintenance of them, the sheer size of most
modern campuses and their concommitant
administrative needs, and the increased
importance and power of universities in
social and political life.
Emanations arising from the above
sources inevitably push the university in the
undesirable directions which we now wish to
describe more fully.
"Universities seem
to be increasingly
antipersonal, politically reactionary
and morally bankrupt.''
First we said the university tends to be
anti-personal. We deliberately chose to say
"anti-personal" rather than "impersonal"
because the first expression intimates that
university life is consciously against people
rather than quietly indifferent. Let us explain.
It is obvious now to most of us that the
university is increasingly anti-personal
when we consider the bureaucratization of
the institution.
Scores of introductory classes across the
country have enrolments of 800 to 1,000
where the only advantage for the student is
that his or her anonymity ensures an
uninterrupted 50 minute nap.
Or we might consider computerized
registration which makes number 100667
more significant than my signature; or
library regulations designed to keep books
on the shelf; a library checked-out service
which dispenses more feelings of
criminality than it catches stolen books; the
profusion of faculty lounges which protect
professors from unwittingly revealing their
humanity to students over coffee. Whatever
the regulation, whatever the practice, the
size, maintenance and development of the
total physical plant in effect says (in the
words of the bewildered freshmen): "screw
the individual student!"
One of our number remembers one
summer working at Queen's University
where most persons employed by that
august institution were flat broke at the end
of the spring term. Most students usually
are.
Not only was the university in no position
to anticipate the needs of its own student
employees by issuing an advance or at least
an early pay cheque, but a computer payroll
system ensured that no one would be paid
until summer's end.
This person remembers asking the
computer (or one of its executive assistants)
if he could pick up his pay cheque on the last
day as he was moving out of town.
The answer received was that the computer was programmed to print the cheques,
feed them to envelopes and mail them to
each employee at his or her summer address.
It was a cardinal rule that there would be
no interference in this programmed
process. He would have to move to Toronto
on the same threadbare shoestring that he
had worn all summer and wait for the post
office to forward his desperately needed
funds.
There is a second and much more serious
level of "inhumanity" in the universities
and that is in the way the academic pursuits
engaged in emphasize behavior rather than
experience in the humanities and social
sciences the observable behavior of people
is studied to the exclusion of the introspective view of the one who is experiencing the behavior.
But experience is every bit as real as the
behavior that we observe that reflects it.
R. D. Laing, the provocative British
psychiatrist, has shown us that experience
is but one side of reality and behavior
another. There is no inner and outer in
human experience save what we give those
names.
In order to understand persons, we need to
appreciate the total reality about them. We
need to take seriously the experience which
gives rise to behavior.
As Laing says: "Our behavior is a function of our experience. We act according to
the way we see things. If our experience is
destroyed our behavior will be destructive.
If our experience is destroyed, we have lost
our own selves."
I submit that it is just this over-emphasis
on outward actions on behavior and de-
emphasis of experience which fosters the
lack of appreciation on the part of the
student for his or her own experience.
In other words, a university education
teaches students to "learn about the world
rather than to learn from the world" as Ivan
Illich puts it.
Lectures, reading lists, term papers and
examinations all pressure the student to see
social realities as something to be learned
about, observed and memorized. There is
little to match these activities which would
assist students in appreciating their environment sharing and extending their
talents, accepting and critically weighing
their own experience, improving their activities by practice and developing their own
wisdom and morality.
Is it any wonder university teachers
complain that students are inexperienced
and non-reflective? Students are so because
their training circumvents such self-
reflection.
To use an example from the field of
political studies we teach students about
political institutions and political events but
we do not attempt to practice political action
of responsible citizenship and critically
evaluate our own performance.
There is a further difficulty in this overemphasis on observable behavior.
Academics   call   this   approach   of   un
derstanding the world around us scientific
realism. It is a realism which critically
analyzes and scientifically or
systematically reorders reality.
What many of the young, or those who
think young, hunger for is a new theory of
human intelligence, a new conception of
human knowing, and a new definition of.
reason.
The young Catholic theologian, Michael
Novak, writes that the university faculty
(and not the administration) is the real
enemy of the student in this struggle for a
new understanding.
He says, "the faculty is the guardian of
the prevailing myth by which reality is to be
perceived; the prevailing definition of
reason, method, argumentation and even
perception. What the faculty says is important exists; what the faculty ignores does
not exist. Realism is what one learns in
college."
Critics of this realism are joined by young
students in calling for a replacement of
analytical reason by consciousness which
maintains, again as does Michael Novak,
that, "myth and symbol, feeling and fantasy, experience and imagination, sensitivity and sensibility are given an explicit
role in the expression of ethical and political
perception and action."
As advocates of realism we, the faculty,
have for too long been calling such
dimensions of human understanding mere
romanticism, irrationality or self-
indulgence.
Finally, I think the university is viciously
anti-personal because of its inordinate
emphasis on hard, competitive work.
Success, is university circles, is seen as
what I achieve "in relation to other," what I
achieve by stepping over and on my fellow
students or faculty members.

nouth Grade One Pupils," our findings
ot likely to have too much political
rtance.
ther question related to the degree of
ssful performance of any social or
:al institution or agency is bound to
more political significance. But our
■e-research is politically relevant not
only in what we find and what we question
but also in how we investigate.
Some forms of investigation (for example
participant observation) may lead to an
involvement and identification with persons
being studied that a distant analysis based
on sample surveys might never risk.
More students are aware of unforeseen
consequences of new discoveries what with
our new areness of the environmental crisis.
But all too few researchers consider the
political question as to who should get the
results of completed studies.
Precious little research is carried on with
a view to developing a better life for
forgotten minorities and issuing them with
the results. What we require may be
counter-research which imaginatively and
stubbornly attempts to propound and
develop stark new alternatives of outworn
ways of doing things.
Ivan Illich calls for such research, a
"research on alternatives to the products
which now dominate the market; to hop-
sitals and the profession dedicated to
keeping the sick alive (the research
required for a heart transplant while
thousands die of amoebic dysentery) to
schools and the packaging process which
refuses education to those who are not of the
right age, who have not gone through the
curriculum, who have not sat in a classroom
a sufficient number of successive hours,
who will not pay for their learning with
submission to custodial care, screening and
certification or with indoctrination in the
values of the dominant elite."
Provocative statements like Illich's may
remind academics that our quiet studies in
carpeted offices do not cease to be political
just because we avoid taking sides. Our
decision not to engage upon a study which
would be given over to the poor for use
against the existing economic and political
order, far from being politically neutral is in
fact politically reactionary.
We fail to recognize that even our feeble
attempts at neutrality are rooted in the
naive assumption that the political and
educational climate and institutions within
which we work are also neutral and harmless, if not powerless. American
academics need only reflect on the fact that
65 per cent of all university research is
directly or indirectly sponsored by government agencies to show the error of such an
assumption.
We come to accept instead compromise,
patience and acquiescence. We grow incapable of attacking problems in such a way
as to build a significantly better system
because we fail.to strike with imagination
and concern at the very roots of the
traditional pattern and order. Our research
produces reforms which are tacked on to the
present social system.
Yet, "there is compelling evidence," says
Novak, "that realistic social and political
reforms do not, in fact, alter power
arrangements or weaken key interest
groups in our society; political symbols
change, but the same elites remain in unchallenged power."
The over-all style of our teaching and
research with its unquestioned realism and
emphasis on behavior conducted as it is with
such political naivete is the source of the
third evil to be found on Canadian campuses, i.e. moral bankruptcy.
Where students learn about social reality
without an equal emphasis on learning from
that reality, professors have the power to
define reality by the reading lists they
distribute, but the assigned topics of their
term papers, by the approved
methodologies they lecture upon, and by the
content of their final examinations. The
discrediting of student experience is
damaging to the student personally and like
a cancerous growth it sinks into the inner
consciousness of students to the point where
students find it ever more difficult to
recognize what they themselves think and
feel.
But as well, this deprecation of experience
eats away the basis from which students feel
concern and responsibility for others. The
realism of university education tends to
destroy the basis upon which wisdom and
morality must be founded: that is, personal
experience and intelligent reflection upon it.
Michael Polanyi, that great philosopher of
science, talks about the 'tacit dimension to
human knowing: — "we know more than we
can tell." We can't "recognize" a friend's
face yet be unable to describe the separate
"Students come to
overlook and distrust what is in
themselves/'
features of that face. We recognize the parts
of a frog, a machine or whatever because of
our prior knowledge of the whole to which
they belong.
The experience of the student is analagous
to Polanti's tacit dimension of knowing. The
student learns better the wider his or her
experience and his or her own reflection on
it. If the student's own experience is down
graded, or even worse disoriented and
distorted, by repeated and highly
sophisticated assaults on it by faculty and
students' arguments and examples the well
from which the student's behavior is drawn
becomes an empty shaft encrusted with self
distrust.
Students come to overlook and distrust
what is in themselves. They have less within
upon which to shape patterns without. Inward emptiness and moral bankruptcy is a
direct result of the style of university
education in the past and its continued
refusal to consider seriously the emptiness
it has caused in the present.
In short, university education is built on
specific stories or myths about what the real
world is like and how we can come to know
it. Our practices and methodologies have
made numbers out of persons by measuring
success by grades, size, volume and control;
robbed students of their self-respect by
discounting their personal experience;
made competing cranks out of faculty by
rewarding their fiercest competitive tendencies; blinded us from our political
responsibilities for changing the social
order and serving the defenceless segments
of the human community by encouraging
secluded'   research for governments  and
business; made a virtue of passivity,
caution and indecision even in times of the
most dire social need; bureaucratized the
wisdom of the ages; and convinced a
generation of scholars that their ideals must
be tailored to fit reality: —that a lack of
moral commitment would somehow not only
enhance scholarship but change the world
for the better.
For these and other reasons we can fairly
add moral bankruptcy to the description of
the present, evils integral to university
education.
What we ought seriously to be questioning
is how as faculty and students we can in all
conscious continue to associate ourselves
with a university.
We justify our staying on in a teaching
position only as we struggle to re-examine
the myths which undergird the university
and our own understanding of them. It
seems to us that the uncloaking of myths is
the central task of all students be they social
or natural scientists, philosophers or
theologians, and that the uncloaking must
necessarily begin with ourselves, our own
training and the institutions with which we
are associated.
Secondly, we believe that as faculty we
can justify an extended contract with the
university if our teaching practices enable
students to learn from the world rather than
simply about it. Hence, we teach political
institutions and we practice citizenship, we
open up the universities to those who want to
learn; the desire to learn is their eligibility
to enrol, not prerequisite courses, ability to
pay or certification. We justify our attachment to the university as we detach
ourselves and take our books, ideas and
knowledge to be used by the larger community outside.
We should justify our research only as it
becomes counter-research, that research
which recognizes its political obligations
and struggles to construct radical alternatives for a new society; that research
which can be employed by those who most
need it and seldom have access to it; the
poor, the dispossessed, the politically
defenceless minorities.
Thirdly, we justify our continued
association with the university by struggling
to build a new moral view of ourselves and
our education. The brilliant psychoanalyst
and social critic Ernest Becker has written
a most careful treatise called Beyond
Mentation in which he ever so thoroughly
traces the gradual return of morality to the
post-scientific world-view and the content of
education.
We hope that in what we've already said
about the university's moral failures you
may agree with us that we need to grapple
with the moral dimension of life in the
university. Certainly we need to continue
our scientific and philosophic analyses and
comparisons of moral positions and ethical
problems. But in addition we, all of us,
faculty and students alike, need to express
our questions of conscience, we need to
encourage intelligent commitments and
consciously engage one another with our
senses of social obligation and personal
convictions.
It would be comforting to think that the
development and living out of such convictions may yet lead to some more
humane, politically aware and morally
sensitive community of scholars in the
future.

affect faculty negotiations with the
university.
"We just don't know whether it
will be automatically applied to
us," he said. "We are quite
literally waiting for a copy to
study."
McRae said it was difficult to
predict how faculty members
would react to the controls.
"No one likes to be told how
much they are worth, but I suppose
if it's efficient in combating inflation, it is acceptable," he said.
McRae said the average 10 per
cent increase which the legislation
allows would not be sufficient to
bring faculty members at the
bottom of the pay scale up to an
acceptable income level.
Ken Andrews, president of the
Canadian Union of Public Employees, local 116, representing
physical plant workers and some
clerical workers, voiced the same
uncertainty.
"No one really knows what it will
mean," said Andrews, who is also
a member of UBC's board of
governors.
"We only know that it is not what
it pretends to be, and that is a
control on prices," he said.
"Food market prices have
already gone up. It's little more
than a wage freeze," he said.
Andrews said wage and price
controls would only complicate
labor-management relations at the
university.
"I'm sure that .reaction will be
strong and the negotiations will be
harder and cause a great deal of
unrest," he said.
He pointed out the legislation did
nothing to counter higher interest
rates and other inflationary factors
in the economy.
In the AUCE-administration
dispute, Dale McAslyn said the
administration was clouding the
issue by implying that wages were
the only issue.
"The wage offer wasn't good, but
it wasn't outrageously low either,"
she said.
"The university has been trying
to make wages the issue to detract
emphasis from other important
contract items.
"Maybe they thought they could
buy off the contract. There are
about twice as many articles unsettled as there are settled according to the university's own list
of articles," she said.
"I don't think that what he said is
accurate. There are 32 issues that
been agreed to, and 60 that haven't
been agreed to. All of the articles of
any substance are still outstanding."
McLean Wednesday  expressed
satisfaction at the progress of the
talks, despite the request for
mediation.
"Some real progress has been
made," he said. "Of the 242 issues
at the start of the talks, only 25 to 30
still remain.
"The remaining items are difficult, but not impossible to solve,"
he said.
Murphy said the administration
has "refused to talk about certain
things, saying that they are not
within their jurisdiction."
"But they represent the board of
governors, and if they don't have
the power to handle them, then who
does? "
She said there are all sorts of
important issues that the administration is stalling over.
"They have absolutely refused to
talk about our sick leave proposal,
or about protection against technological automation."
Murphy said the administration
was successful in getting a
mediator appointed because they
told the Labor Relations Board
AUCE would strike last Friday.
PANGO PANGO (UNS) — "Stop
the presses!" yelled Perry White,
publisher of the Daily Truth.
"The workers refuse to handle
copy written on the venereal
disease transmitters and they've

Empty rooms amid shortage
Student housing 'paradoxical'
By MARK BUCKSHON
The student housing crisis is a
paradoxical issue.
For the last two Septembers
5^dents have pushed, shoved and
Fought each other for a scant
supply of room listings.
Tlien they have disappeared,
either into adequate or inadequate
accommodation of some kind, or
away from the university, where
no space is available."
••Student representatives, housing
Dfficials and some politicians
a#?ee the problem will worsen in
years ahead if some widespread
changes don't take place.
But students are victims of the
paradox — a crisis in September
affecting thousands, followed by. a -
misleading appearance of an
overabundant housing supply at
oAgr times of the year.
Each October, the housing crisis
seems shelved for another year —
to recur in even more intense form.
"It's difficult to explain," says
[Jave Johnson, who manages
UBC's off-campus housing service.
"It's something that's bothering
me."
Johnson was referring to the 15
rooms in UBC's residences which
remained vacant at the end of
September despite long waiting
ifSts during the summer.
Liitle housing
And he was referring to the calls
from landlords offering student
accommodation who haven't
received any response to their
listings.
There are dozens of unfilled
listings — mostly basement rooms
without cooking facilities in small
'amily homes — which probably
will never be filled.
The unfilled listings are "proof"
to municipal politicians and others
opposed to improving student
housing that the problem doesn't
ideally exist.
The "proof" is misleading to
students concerned with housing
problems.
Students, say Johnson and
housing service employee Stew
Savard, are like other low income
people with the disadvantage they
often have to seek new accommodation each year.
They say students should be
given the opportunity to find other
adequate accommodation with the
privacy and living standards
others have.
* "Changing attitudes," says
Johnson when asked about the
paradox of apparent vacancies in
the. midst of the "worst housing
crisis in years." "Students want
some cooking facilities."

"The independent student
prefers a substandard room of
one's own to either the parental
home or the don-supervised
residence," a report on student
housing prepared last year for the
B.C. Universities Council says.
"Even the inconvenience and
wasted time of inadequate public
transportation onto campus could
be accepted for the pleasure of
being responsible to no one but
one's self. . . "
Privacy asked
Students want privacy, independence and freedom — like
other tenants. Accommodation
(especially in crowded residences)
that would have been acceptable a
decade ago is now taken only in
desperation.
And the off-campus accommodation that is available —
rooms in family homes away from
the university, where kitchen and
bathroom facilities must be shared
— is taken in even greater
desperation.
That is the kind of accommodation Vancouver mayor
Art Phillips, concerned with
preserving comfortable neighbourhoods of single family
homeowners, is willing to offer the
students.
"Students can stay in private
homes as long as they have no
kitchen facilities," he says. "One
way we've helped is to publicize
the fact of the need — encouraging
homeowners to come forward if
they have a spare bedroom."
He says students would be driven
from the "spare bedroom" accommodation available to them
now if areas were rezoned and
permanent tenants move into
improved, self-contained suites. In
other words, he is saying only
students should be unfortunate
enough to tolerate the lifestyle of
"spare bedroom" homes.
Phillips' strong stand against
rezoning is, to housing service
workers, UBC's administration
and the provincial government,
one of the main reasons the student
housing crisis remains serious.
Housing minister Lome Nicolson
blames "municipal restrictions"
for failure of a program offering
low interest mortgages to
homeowners desiring to convert
their houses to multiple-family
accommodation.    He    says    a
Zoning wrong
relaxing of zoning restrictions
could go "a long way towards
relieving the problems for both
UBC and Simon Fraser University."
Despite meetings between
university officials and Phillips,
and a sparring match that spilled
into the newspapers, Phillips
remains firm about his desire to
maintain the exclusivity of single
family neighbourhoods.
Nicolson and administration
president Doug Kenny also believe
"what is needed is a total integrated housing development
near the campus" which would
serve "more than just the
academics and students at the
university."
They haven't made specific
proposals, but Nicolson hints
scarce Central Mortgage and
Housing Corporation money would
be forthcoming if a properly
"integrated" project could be
designed.
But there is little support for new
residence construction.

residences this fall haunt those
students who had urged additional
residence construction during the
summer.
No residences
The CMHC has emphatically
said it has no money for residence
construction, and without mortgage money, it is unlikely any
residences will be built, except as a
last resort.
Housing service manager
Johnson says the university should
consider upgrading the older
Totem Park and Place Vanier
residences to allow increased
privacy and some independent
cooking facilities.
He also says students would
welcome additional residences like
Walter Gage.
Administration president Kenny
has said the university might be
forced to request money for new
residences if municipal regulations
aren't changed or the "integrated"
housing proposed by Nicolson isn't
constructed.
On a more immediate level,
representatives of the off-campus
housing service are negotiating
with the university administration
to see if the office can be operated
on a year-round basis.
The full and part-time workers in
the office at the north end of SUB
are currently paid union minimum
wages of more than $4 an hour.
Proposals are to pay full-time
workers at least $1,000 a month.
But a budget of $40,000 a year to
maintain the service on a year-
round basis appears reasonable.
There would be a few people, at
least, with the time to develop
ideas and explain the paradox to
reluctant politicians.
Otherwise, the "student housing
crisis" will remain an increasingly
desperate annual show for
university students, and the real
problems will continue to be
treated with band-aid solutions.

noon today.
Mr. Peanut's show, Image
Bank: Assets and Liabilities (an

in Lasserre 104.
Mr. Peanut, alias Vincent
Trasov, is a veteran of the Western
Front, the gaggle of goofy gonads
who waste thousands of dollars of
taxpayers' money on shows which
nobody understands and about 14
people can appreciate.
But he's a good nut anyway.

and knives of Norwegian sealers.
Volunteers for this expedition
can apply to Greenpeace Save the

Feminism
How has the feminist
movement changed the ways in
which society sees itself?
Feminist Diana Alstad, in a
talk called Feminism and the
Evolution of Awareness, will
discuss this and related topics in a
speech noon Thursday in the SUB
art gallery.
Alstad will also examine
whether the "new awareness" has
led to a realization that men as
well as women are short-changed
by male-female stereotyping.
Her speech is part of the fall

"Birds run wild in Manitoba
By TOM BARNES
The Thunderbird football team shot
'themselves into contention with a 56-25
Western Intercollegiate Football League
►in over the hapless University of Manitoba
Bisons last Saturday in Winnipeg.
Offensively it was the finest game the
'Birds had put together in many years. The
most points UBC ever scored in a game was
58, against Whitman College of Walla Walla
in 1966. The performance against Manitoba
is better than any league effort the 'Birds,
nave ever been involved in.
UBC scored eight touchdowns, four of
them by fullback Gord Penn. Penn scored on
a one-yard plunge and 44-yard pass and run
play in the second quarter. In the third
quarter he scored on a 29-yard draw play
and in the fourth on another one-yard
plunge. The last touchdown was set up by a
60-yard punt return by Vic Wasilenko to the
Manitoba one-yard line.
Mike MacLeod collected two majors for
UBC on a one-yard run and a 11-yard rush.
Quarterback Dan Smith passed seven yards
to Chris Davies and hit Shaun McGuihess on
a 36-yard play for the other UBC touchdowns. Digby Leigh was good on six of seven
convert attempts. Smith passed to Davies
for a two-point convert on the other touchdown.
Statistically the 'Birds amassed 316 yards
rushing and 253 yards passing for a total
offense of 569 yards and 29 first downs. Penn
accounted for 173 of the 'Birds ground
yardage.
Manitoba had 173 yards passing and 151
rushing for 324 total yards with 14 first
downs. Even though the Bisons totals are
meagre in comparison with UBC's, 'Bird
coach Frank Smith was not entirely pleased
with the performance of his defense.
The injury list may account for some lack
of spark on the part of the 'Birds defense,
although Smith may be the last to admit it.
Linebackder Dave MacKay-Dunn and
veteran defensive back Ten Hon Choo both
missed the game with knee injuries. Gary
Metz was also out, with appendicitis, and
Bernie Crump suffered a partially
separated shoulder in the game. None of the
four will be ready for the 'Birds encounter
with Montana Tech this Saturday.
The win moved the 'Birds into a second
place tie with the idle University of Calgary
Dinosaurs; both now have 3-2 league
records.
The University of Saskatchewan Huskies
consolidated their hold on first place with a
32-15 victory over the University of Alberta
Golden Bears.
With two of their last three league games
at home, UBC stands a good chance at
capturing the league title.
The league standings are as follows:
GP W L F   A     Pts.
Sask. 5      4    1     158   73     8

UBC runners 2nd at Fort Casey
By LARRY HILL
UBC cross-country runners
surprised themselves Saturday by
pulling their men's team to second
pface in a race at Fort Casey,
Washington.
Competitors raced over the six
mile course which attracted teams
from B.C. and from all over
Washington.,
Chris White led the UBC effort,
finishing eighth with a time of
31:07. Close behind was John
Wheeler, in ninth place in 31:08.
Wheeler won the race last year.
Scott Holmes led the University
of Washington to team victory,
winning the race in 30:21. Jim
Johnson of Seattle's Club Northwest followed him in 30:40.
"I was pleased with my race,"
said White. "The race was slower
starting than in previous years. I
was near the leaders for the first
half, and John (Wheeler) was just
behind.  Scott  Holmes  made  his
move after four miles. Jim
Johnson tried to stay with him, but
couldn't."
The course was fairly flat, but
had difficult hills in the middle and
near the end.
"I felt good on the hills today,"
said White. "John and I were both
strong on them, until the last one
when we both were tired."
UBC's third finisher Doug
Webber placed 32 in 32:40, improving greatly on earlier performances this season. "It was
important to start fast," he said. "I
got out quickly to try to hand on to
the leaders, which I haven't done
previously. That, plus an extensive
warmup, made the difference."
Fourth and fifth UBC runners
were Dave Taylor and Jerry
Lister, placing 40 and 45 respectively.
Team scores were determined
by adding up the finishing positions
of the first five team runners.
"The team did well, much better
than last weekend," said White.
"Our team score was 134,-which
was the same as it was on Oct. 4 at
Coquitlam, but today the competition was much better. We're
coming around for the Canada-
West and the B.C. championships.
The girls were very strong today —
they're usually very strong."
Sheila Currie of UBC won over
heavy competition in the women's
race. She led throughout the three
mile course, and finished in 15:25.
Currie, who was third last year,
defeated last year's runner-up
Maureen Crowley of Simon Fraser,
who has represented Canada internationally on several occasions.
Crowley followed Currie in 15:35.
"I always think of the Fort Casey
race as being one of the toughest
around," said Currie. "There are
lots of hills, but it is a good course."
Teammates Linda Rossetti and
Leslie Stubbs also ran well, placing
sixth and eighth respectively.
Speaking of the team's showing
at the Fort Casey race, which was
the first major race of the season,
assistant Bill Morrish said that it
was 'a cautious beginning."
"Many of our runners were unfamiliar with the distance," she
said. For many, it was their first
cross-country race for UBC. We
should do well at the Canada-West
meet. I'm expecting big things in
the future from our younger
runners."
Important races for the team
will be the B.C. championships on
Oct. 25 in Coquitlam, and the
Canada-West meet on Nov. 1 in
Edmonton.
"I don't think UBC will dominate
in either the Canada-West or in the
B.C. meets as we have in previous
years," said John Wheeler. "This
is a re-building year for us. We
have lost some of our senior runners, and it'll take a while for our
younger runners to develop their
strength. I'm pleased with the
amount of attention being given to
our athletes by coaches Lionel
Pugh and Bill Morrish."
Soccer 'Birds host Bears today
The UBC Thunderbirds soccer
team will have their first taste of
inter-collegiate soccer today at
1-2:45 p.m. when they play host to
the University of Alberta Golden
Bears at the Thunderbirds
Stadium.
The 'Birds put an end to their
winless streak last Saturday with a
5-2 win over the New Westminster
Blues at the Thunderbirds
Stadium.
-Hot off their win against the
Blues Saturday, the UBC team
started their second game in the
long weekend, against the Vancouver Firefighters, with a
breakaway goal before the spec-
fa tors got to their seats.
*With Chris Suzuki on the wing
and ex-defender Roy Zuyderduyn
in his new position of center-
forward, the 'Birds kept the
Firemen defense on their toes for
most of the first half.
The Firemen equalized just
before half-time when their forwards found the  'Birds  napping
and the half ended with a 1-1 tie.
In the second half, the 'Birds
pressed hard for the tie-breaking
goal only to see their attacks fizzle
out through erratic passing among
the forwards and some body-
contact soccer on the part of the
Firemen defensive unit.
The Firefighters took advantage
of the 'Birds frustrations and
scored 15 minutes from the end
from twenty yards for the game.
The final score was 2-1 for the
Vancouver Firefighters.
The 'Birds, who start Canada
West play Oct. 18th in Victoria, will
leave the B.C. First Division for a
while today, and size up the team
that may mean trouble for their
hopes of retaining the national
collegiate soccer crown.
When game starts today at 12:45
p.m., the spectators will see two of
the top university soccer teams
west of Toronto and it should be a
treat.

Lambrou proposal
'quite sophisticated'
From page 1
"What we would like to build
there is a community which would
house studentsand teaching staff."
Lambrou said the complex he
wants to build would house
"primarily professors" but also
students and other people
associated with UBC to "bring
together the elements of teaching
and studying."
He said the development would
be "quite sophisticated" with
mainly self-contained bachelor
suites. "People would have access
to the amenities of the property,"
he added.
Lambrou said student accommodation in the proposed
complex would have to be subsidized by the university or the
government in order for his firm to
receive "some kind of return" on
its investment.
He said he received "a beautiful
letter from your (Alma Mater)
society telling me to invest my
money somewhere else."
"Whether we build in the
university   or   in   Burnaby   it's
strictly for business. I could make
more money in other areas — I
don't work for money only,"
Lambrou claimed.
"I would like to put something
there (on the UEL) for
professional reasons," he said.
Lambrou said he will meet with
the architects working on a design
next week to discuss details of the
proposal.
"I'll probably have some more
details in a couple of weeks," he
said.
