 Slates hedge,
deadline near,
politics clear
The four slates preparing for
next week's Alma Mater Society
executive elections remain incomplete as the search for candidates continues before the noon
Thursday nomination deadline.
But the slates' political makeup
is complete and clear — in a hocus-
pocus manner the slates represent
and follow the political theories
and peculiarities of movements
ranging from, mildly, Robert
Stanfield's conservatism to,
seriously, Mao Tse-tung's
socialism.
The Progressive Student
Alliance, a left slate, has as its
main principles working for the
political rights of students and
making the university a centre of
serious political, academic,
cultural and athletic programs.
"We will work for the principle of
equal voice for students with
faculty, staff and administration in
all matters within the university,"
a platform statement released
Monday evening said.
The slate has not yet been
finalized, but David Empey, arts 4,
will run for president and Pemme
Muir, nursing undergraduate
society representative in council,
for treasurer.
Also running on the slate will be
Sharon Stevenson, Cheryl Stephens
and Jennifer Fuller/all followers
of the Communist Party of Canada
(Marxist-Leninist). They have not
yet decided on the positions they
will run for.
The platform statement for the
group specifically proposes:
* opposing discrimination against
women by continuing support for
women's office, women's action
group, women's grievance committee and women's studies;
* working for more housing and
for rent controls, on campus and
off, with student and non-student
groups;
* supporting part-time degree
programs with financial
assistance;
* making more student money
available for intramurals on an
equitable sharing , basis between
men and women;
* expanding speakers and
education programs.
Students' Coalition, a group with
traditional conservative beliefs,
has put a slate together, but
refuses to release its platform
Current AMS vice-president
Gordon Blankstein running for
president in the slate said he fears
the slate would be declared
ineligible if its platform was made
public because a clause in the AMS
constitution forbids a candidate
from campaigning until his or her
nomination form is in.
In an interview last week,
however, Blankstein said the slate
is more service-oriented than
politically-oriented.
"Students don't want to get involved in political bullshit off
campus," he said. "We're spending so damn much time on Chile.
Not that it's not important, but it's
not directly benefitting students.
Current AMS secretary George
Mapson, running for treasurer in
the Students' Coalition slate, also
outlined last week some of the
things Students' Coalition will be
including in its platforms
* getting a draft licence for The
Pit;
* promoting internal transportation on campus and lobbying
for student discounts on buses off
campus;
* lobbying tax deductions on
books through the National Union
of Students.
Vol. IV, No. 39
VANCOUVER, B.C., TUESDAY, JANUARY 22, 1974
48
228-2301 j
* giving more support to intramurals and Recreation UBC;
* looking into the possibilities of
taking over food services.
Mapson said his slate, if elected,
would not organize political
pressure groups but leave them to
organize themselves.
Student council has not,
however, organized any political
pressure group this year.
Other students running in the
slate are: Lyn Orstad, arts 2,
activities co-ordinator; Joan
Mitchell, arts 2, internal-affairs
officer; Gary Moore, commerce 2,
external-affairs officer; current
internal-affairs officer Doug
Brock, arts 4, vice-president; and
Duncan Thomson, commerce 1,
secretary.
Students' Coalition currently
holds five of the seven executive
positions on council.
A third slate is being formed by
Stephan Mochnaki, grad studies 9,
who originally planned to run for
office in Progressive Student
Alliance.
But he said he left when he felt
the slate was being dominated by
members of the CPC (M-L).
Mochnaki said his slate has not
yet been finalized and he does not
want to release any names
He described the slate as being
non-doctrinaire left and said it
would be concentrating on student
housing, both on campus and off
campus.
"Some of our people are talking
to city council about
discrimination against students in
housing off campus," he said.
Mochnaki said his group wants to
increase student representation on
faculty committees and believes,
the AMS should provide leadership
in this cause.
He said he also wants to
revitalize the speakers, education
and special events committees and
have profits from rock concerts on
campus go to providing money for
other cultural affairs.
The fourth slate running consists
of the Young Socialists. They are
fielding only three candidates:
Coreen Douglas, arts 3, president;
Stuart Russell, arts 2, vice-
president; and Kathleen Ball, arts
4, external-affairs officer.
As specific points of the platform
she mentioned promoting
discussion on the report on
university governance, improving
the situation of women, supporting
Montreal abortionist Henry
Morgentaler and lobbying with the
federal government to allow more
refugees from Chile into the
country.

CYVR to stop residence broadcasting
By RYON GUEDES
UBC radio station CYVR will stop residence
broadcasting Wednesday.
The station's carrier current broadcasting
to Totem Park and Place Vanier residences
has been illegal since the Canadian radio-
television commission changed its regulations
in 1973 to require licensing of such operations.
A license application is pending but Alma
Mater Society council Wednesday ordered
CYVR to get CRTC permission to broadcast
in the interim or shut down the residences
operation. Councillors feared the CRTC could
seize CYVR's equipment if the carrier
operation were run illegally.
CYVR head announcer Richard Dettman
told The Ubyssey Monday the station will
broadcast in SUB and the forestry, commerce
and education lounges until the Canadian
Television and Radio Commission hearing on
March 11 when CYVR's pending application
for a licence to continue its closed circuit
operation will be considered.
"Basically our current operation just involves sending a signal to Totem Park and
Place Vanier to a transformer to be picked up
by the buildings' electrical network," Dettman said.
"Any radio plugged into an electrical outlet
and turned to 650 on the AM dial will receive
the signal. We are going to shut this down."
Dettman was unsure whether the cutdown
would drastically affect the station's
audience. "It's hard to estimate," he said.
"We haven't conducted any polls lately. But
we did get a lot of calls from Totem Park
when people heard we .were broadcasting
illegally."
Program director Don Lewthwaite said
advertising revenue for the station will
continue to be poor until broadcasting is
extended to Gage towers. "University
Pharmacy, for example, told us they would
not renew their contract with us until we
broadcast to Gage towers because most of
their revenue comes from there," he said.
Lewthwaite said results of a poll conducted
last year to determine the size of CYVR's
audience showed few people were listening.
"We found a lot more people were aware of
our existence than actually listening," he
said.
He blamed bad reception as the main
reason for the poor audience response. "In
some of the residences we come across like
radio Norway," he said. Pago 2

Nurses' needs
under scrutiny,
says Uprichard
The financial problems of first-
year UBC nursing students are
now being looked into by the
provincial government, nursing
school director Muriel Uprichard
said Monday.
Uprichard said she has sent a
letter to health minister Dennis
Cocke concerning financial
assistance for nursing  students.
"I haven't heard anything from'
him yet," she said. "You can't
expect    instant    action    from
government."
Uprichard said she will try to
make an appointment with Cocke
to discuss the problem.
The new four-year program
which began this year requires
nursing students to go to school
from the beginning of September to
the end of July. This means nursing students have only one month
to earn money for school expenses.
A recent student survey shows 54 of
the 140 students surveyed in the
149-person class are thinking of
dropping out for a year to earn
enough money to stay in school.
Uprichard said she is concerned
and upset students are considering
such action, but declined any
further comment.
"We'll just have to wait and see
what the provincial government
does," she said.
More doctors
in shorter time
ByDOUGRUSHTON
In an effort to shorten the
training period for doctors, UBC's
medical school will consider
reducing the length of required
undergraduate study for pre-
medical students, the associate
medical dean said Monday.
Dr. William Webber was commenting on one of the recommendations in the Foulkes report
on health care released last
Thursday suggesting a reduction in
the required pre-medical program
from a minimum of three to a
minimum of two years.
"The faculty administration will
definitely consider the possibility
of making this change," Webber
said.
He said another method of
shortening the doctors' training
periods is to extend the academic
year into the summer. But, he said,
this proposal might create more
financial difficulties for medical
students.
The Foulkes report also
recommended increasing the
output of the school from the
current average of 60-65 doctors to
at least 152 and possibly 200 by
1981.
"We would look seriously at this
proposal providing we had
assurance of government
resources (for expansion),"
Webber said.
Medical dean Dr. David Bates
predicted Friday an economic
study would show it is less costly to
expand existing training facilities
than to create a new one.
The report also recommended an
obligatory, family practice
residency period for UBC
graduates.
Webber said he is not convinced
such requirements should be
imposed on graduates.
"If they are going to impose
requirements they should also be
applied to new doctors from out of
the province," he said.
Webber also said B.C. doctors
may be over-trained for some of
the duties they currently perform.
"This is part of the problem of
determining how many doctors we
need in B.C.," he said.
"An increase in the number of
paramedics (highly trained first-
aid personnel) would reduce the
number of doctors who are
possibly performing duties they
are overtrained for," he said.
Travel for credit
around Europe
Do you want to travel in Europe
this spring and summer while
earning credits for UBC?
The Centre for Continuing
Education, in co-operation with
several UBC faculties, is offering
Biker plans insurance protest
Motorcyclists angry about substantial
increases in their insurance rates under the
new Insurance Corporation of B.C. plan now
have a chance to protest.
Ben Van Drimmelen, forestry 4, is calling
on all bikers to join in a demonstration ride
around the legislative buildings Feb. 23 from
noon to 5 p.m, to protest hikes of up to $200 on
insurance premiums for motorcycles.
"I see it primarily as a means of demonstrating that we're annoyed. People can make
of it what they want. There will be one
motorcycle out there regardless," said Van
Drimmalen.
In addition, motorcyclists are not included
in the government offer to give a rebate to
motorists who will have to pay more for insurance under the government scheme.
"Everybody's being shafted," said Van
Drimmelen.
The official ICBC explanation, according to
Van Drimmelen, is the rates had to go up to
cover the cost of insuring the large number of
motorcyclists who formerly could not get
insurance under private schemes. "But it
doesn't seem like a fair explanation to me,"
he said.
He said he thinks other bikers probably feel
the same way. Right now he wants to find out
how many of the approximately 160 motorcyclists at UBC would support a protest ride.
From those figures he will be able to
estimate the kind of support he can expect
from bikers throughout the Fraser Valley and
Vancouver Island.
CBUT Hourglass interviewer and Sun
columnist Jack Wasserman has indicated
interest in publicizing the ride if it looks as if
there will be a substantial turnout. Van
Drimmelen said.
"With all those motorcycles and all that
noise there will be no way to control a
demonstration like this. They won't be able to
ignore us."
Bikers interested in joining Van Drim-
melen's protest ride Feb. 23 can contact him
at 731-9302 between 5-8 p.m.
five courses of directed study in
various European centres which
may or may not be used for credit
at UBC.
The fine arts department is offering courses in western,
Renaissance and historical art for
credit in fine arts 397. The English
department gives credit in English
365 for Shakespearean studies in
London and Stratford-upon-Avon
while the physical education school
allows students up to 5-1/2 units of
credit for studies of current
physical education practices in
England.
Fine arts instructor David
Cottington said students considering the programs might be
put off by England's current
energy crisis.
"I was in England during the
Christmas break and the situation
is not as bad as it may appear," he
said.
"After all, it will be summer,"
said Cottington, "and there is little
likelihood that tourists or students
will be adversely affected by the
energy crisis." Page 4

Lateral shuffle
fogs report
This week marks the first anniversary of the release of
Shelagh Day's Status of Women at UBC report.
As our feature on page 6 and 7 indicates not much has
been done on that report's conclusion that women are
being discriminated against in all aspects of life at UBC.
The immediate reaction to the report was typified by
Wally Gage's lateral shuffle.
Basically Gage said "Gee whiz, we didn't know
anything about all that happening at dear old UBC but we'd
better set up a committee just to study it if you know what
I mean, nudge, nudge."
So despite the fact that Day's report already documented the discrimination. Gage's committee set out to
study the matter, perhaps hoping to come up with some
other statistics that proved things weren't nearly as bad as
Day said they were.
The Gage committee has permitted those in charge of
all other aspects of human endeavor at this here university
to ignore the issue of discrimination against women by
performing another lateral shuffle.
"We can't comment on that until the report of the
president's committee is ready."
Right now the Gage committee is in the throes of
casting about for more "on the one hand's" to go with its
multitude of carefully contrived "on the other hand's",
occasionally handing out nebulous press releases.
At the current rate of progress the final report of the
Gage Committee on Wimmen should be ready about the
turn of the century.
And that momentous event will coincide with the
moment when, based on the current rate of increase, men
and women faculty finally achieve equality of numbers at
UBC.
Until then the administration will continue to ignore
Day's report.
It figures.
Sign-off
A   word   of   thanks   to   the   UBC   research   graphics
committee.
These geniuses of the aesthetic have determined that the
vertical signs which dot the campus are difficult to read.
They further conclude that were the signs horizontal (or,
presumably, were students horizontal), they would be six
times easier to read. Those turkey signs were
erected in 1971 at a ridiculous cost of over $100,000.
At that time even the most
myopic campus denizen
could have told anyone who
asked that they were as readable as the Dead Sea scrolls.
Since then they have served the campus with the same
sort of relevance as the disinformation kiosks and
teacher evaluation forms.
All this begs for editorial
comment of rapier like quality; some sarcastic diatribe
which will send the academic
planning idiots who designed
the signs, reeling into the
retreats of Robert Clark's
office to lick their wounds.
However we've been beaten to the draw.
First there's the chap on
the left who may have made
the best comment of all.
Also, those who've been
around long enough to be
sick of the place, will remember those fun-loving engineers destroyed several signs
soon after they were erected.
Unfortunately the signs they
cut down turned out to be
replicas.
Maybe they'll get the contract to remove the originals.

May I comment on an error and
an omission in the article, "SFU
ends era, splits PSA" of Jan. 16,
page 2?
The article states that six of
eight professors who went on strike
in September 1969 were dismissed
after a 20-month battle involving
university and legal courts, and
that up until last year, all profs
continued to draw pay and have
library privileges.
In fact, five of the eight
professors were dismissed; three
were reinstated to teaching and
then dropped at the end of their
contract periods, one in 1970 and
two in 1972, when their salaries of
course were stopped. Of the five
profs dismissed, David Potter and
I were dismissed in August 1970.
Our salaries stopped three months
later (and our library privileges
immediately), in accordance with
the university's regulations. The
three other professors were
dismissed in June 1971. One of
them died in an accident a few
days later. The other two received
salary until, I believe, mid-1972,
perhaps in recognition of the fact
that they had been dismissed arbitrarily.
What is not mentioned and is, I
think, important, is that all three
dismissal hearing committees
appointed from outside the
university opposed dismissal and
found for the professor, not the
university administration, as did
the independent investigations
undertaken by professional
associations. The dismissals were
done without any due process and
in contravention of Simon Fraser
University's own academic
freedom and tenure statement, the
document by which the university
purported to be goverened.
Because of this, the Canadian
Association of University Teachers
censured and boycotted SFU until
such time as the dismissed
professors were offered back their
contracts, and the university
reinstituted procedures
safeguarding academic freedom
and employment,' in accordance
with CAUT guidelines. The
splitting of PSA does not change
this situation, which remains to be
remedied. It does end a department which once had an unusually
creative and lively co-operation
between students and teachers.
But fortunately, ideas and cooperation don't end with departments, or even dismissals.

Lefties
Re: Your article "Left Slate
Splits . . ."
Having been named as candidates on the 'leftist' slate to
which you referred in your article
(The Ubyssey, Jan. 18) and in light
of the developments of the past few
days, we feel it necessary to clarify
our position in this matter.
Firstly, being unfamiliar with
the political procedures (as opposed to ideologies) involved in
university politics, we were admittedly   politically   naive,   and
perhaps susceptible to
manipulation by more experienced
persons within the organization
with which we became involved. It
is this precedence of political
action over ideology and the
unexpected direction which these
maneuvers have taken which
adversely affected our personal
association with the political
process here on campus.
Secondly, we find ourselves
personally split between the
elements of dissatisfaction within
the coalition. As a result of our
personal inability to separate
ideological considerations from
political principles, we find ourselves in a position of compromise,
i.e. believing intrinsically in the
need for leftist coalition on campus
but in opposition, in principle, to
the predominance of any one
political doctrine; hence, supporting the concept of non-
doctrinaire leftist coalition.
Consequently, we find ourselves
unable to accept the political
techniques involved in the
organization over this past week.
We feel we are therefore
obligated to divorce ourselves
from further participation of any
sort in the present politics of this
campus. To this end, we wish to
state that our association with
political organizations on campus
be considered terminated with
respect to the forthcoming elections.

By GEOFF HANCOCK
For a live dinosaur, Jerry Lee
Lewis was in fine condition Sunday
evening in the War Memorial
gymnasium.
Lewis, known as the Meat Man,
the Killer, the Pumpin' Pianah and
the Boogie King, is the last survivor of an era that began with
Chuck Berry, Little Richard and
Elvis Presley. But while these
figures are now the victims of night
clubs and talk shows, Jerry Lee
Lewis, whose age is "around 40"
has not forgotten lean and mean
rock and roll.
Sunday night he came on strong.
Within seconds of his entrance,
with bodyguards and fanfare, he
was pumping into his big hit,
"Headstone on My Grave."
Yodelling, growling, kicking the
keyboard with his cowboy boots,
Lewis and his seven piece band
were in charge.
Even when the band moved into
a medley of stringy cowboy ballads
Lewis never paused. He pulled
notes out of the air, mussed his hair
and recombed it, played the keys
with the comb.
He brought the audience to its
feet with his rock and roll hits,
Great Balls of Fire, Whole Lotta
Shakin' Goin' On, Chantilly Lace
and Johnny B. Goode.
Posing dramatically on top of the
piano, pounding away on the
keyboards, Lewis lived up to his
unpredictable reputation.
He smashed the piano bench and
rolled the microphone stand across
the keys, Damage to the piano was
estimated at $75 to $200.
Under the terms of his nightclub
contracts Lewis agrees to pay
whatever damages he may incur.
Unfortunately, Lewis' performance was forty minutes long.
It is difficult to maintain an energy
level certainly but it is also inconsiderate to an audience which
has paid up to $5 for seats.
Coupled with the fact that the
band started lifelessly (they were
drinking backstage) and a
tasteless stand-up comic this is
inexcusable.
Special criticism must be
reserved for the Giant Kelly-
Deyong Sound System. No matter
what the concert, no matter what
the music this system of amplifiers
and loudspeakers is always too
loud. It may be to the advantage of
a mediocre group to cover up their
deficits with decibels but the
buzzing in the ears remains long
after the event. Boo to the Giant
Kelly Deyong Sound System.
Also on the program was Redbone, a ceremonial cult band.
Redbone, whose members are
half Yaqui and half Mexican-
Indian', try to evoke a musical
feeling "which for a brief moment
turns a crowd into a tribe." They
nearly succeeded.
Guitars chopping, spine tingling
splash cymbals and heavy bass
pattern set up some confident
ensemble work. At times though
the group got into musical waters
too deep for their heads. This lead
to prolonged solo runs while they
tried to figure how to resolve the
piece. And they had to get into
some commercial radio pap.
Still, Redbone is a band which
will be around awhile. They are
good enough.
As an added attraction, Vancouver's only remaining groupie,
"Lady Swoop" was on hand.
Spaced out on something, she got
into some fine dancing.
And if you aren't into the rock
and  roll  revival,   there   was   a
juggler, squads of engineers police
in red sweaters, cases of beer
which the engineers missed
frisking pockets and 3000 others,
including a hippie who had a
marijuana cigarette.

Administration reports and recommenda
tions have flourished in the last year since
the report on the status of women at UBC
was released but what has actually been
done to improve the situation?
Next to nothing according to Shelagh Day,
who sparked debate last January when she
released the women's action group Report
on the Status of Women at UBC which she
wrote.
Sandy Lundy, treasurer of the Association
of University and College Employees, said
Report no
The following is a resume of the recommendations the women's action group report
made last year. Assessments of what
has happened on campus since the
recommendations were" made are
included in boldface. The
women's action group,
naturally, made the
assessments.
POLICY STATEMENTS
We recommend that the university make a statement
of policy of non-discrimination including: 1) a guarantee
of equal educational and employment opportunities for
women regardless of age, pregnancy or possible
pregnancy, marital status, number of dependents or
financial position of parents, and 2) a commitment to
remedy the present effects of past discrimination
against women.
No action.
The Buttedahl committee was appointed by the
president to consider the Status Report with reference to
employed staff reported in October and made a similar
recommendation. That committee recommended that
the university "publicly declare itself against
discrimination" and "work actively to ensure that
policies and practices within the university serve to
eradicate any vestige of discrimination. . ."
EQUAL EDUCATION AND EMPLOYMENT PLAN
We recommend that in order to carry out the commitment to non-discrimination the university develop a
program to correct all practices which discriminate
against 1) women students in recruitment and admissions, curriculum, extracurricular activities and
supportive services, 2) women faculty and staff in appointment, promotion and salary levels. The plan should
include goals and timetables whever it is shown that
women are unrepresented or underrepresented in the
whole range of university activities.
No action
RECORD-KEEPING AND ACCOUNTABILITY
We recommend that the president require each
academic and administrative department to collect and
make available statistics by sex 1) on applications and
admission, financial aid, scholarships, fellowships and
graduate assistantships applied for and granted, 2) on
faculty and staff hirings, education levels, promotions,
changes in tenure status and salary levels.
No action.
We recommend that each department or administrative unit submit to the president for publication
in each annual report an account of its progress toward
equality in education and employment opportunities for
women. ^
No action.
Without this annual and consistent reporting women
have no way of monitoring the behavior of departments
with respect to women.
WOMEN'S OFFICE
We recommend that the university provide additional
funds and staff for the dean of women's otf ice so it can
take on the following new responsibilities:
Unsatisfactory. Far from providing additional funds and
staff for the dean of women's office, a new dean of Tuesday, January 22, 1974
THE      UBYSSEY
Page 7
Monday the AUCE has seen no evidence any
recommendations of a presidential report
on women staff have been implemented.
The president's report, headed by Knute
Buttedahl of the Centre for Continuing
Education, was commissioned last
February by administration president
Walter Gage to investigate the possibility of
implementing the Women's Action Group
report.
Joyce Searcey, the acting dean of women
and a member of Buttedahl^ committee,
says both reports brought attention to the
situation and people "are a lot more sensitive to the fact that women aren't visible in
some areas".
But Searcey says she thinks nothing
specific has come out of the report unless
the personnel department is doing
something she is not aware of.
Her office has recommended a bigger
budget and wider responsibility for the dean
of women to represent all women at UBC.
Robert Clark UBC's director of academic
planner and chairman of the presidents
committee on academic women, said they
will have its first report out in late February
although some circumstances may delay its
release. The first report will deal only with
the status of graduate students. A series on
reports by the committee will follow on
faculty and undergraduates.
Clark's committee is another commissioned by Gage last February to investigate an area of the women's status
report.
Marty Hallenberg, chairman of the
faculty salary committee, is now revising
his report for release to faculty next week on
a confidential basis. The report will go to the
board of governors in early February for
consideration. Hallenberg's committee was
formed by the faculty council last spring.
Speculation among faculty members is
that the salary gap between male and
female faculty has widened in the past year.
This may be due to the method for raising
salaries which has been a percentage increase, sources say. This means a percentage raise on a higher salary is more
significant and greater in dollars relative to
the same percentage raise on a lower
salary, which is where most women faculty
salaries fall. •
Neither Clark nor Hallenberg will comment on this salary gap increase until their
reports are released.
Bonnie Johnson of the Women's Action
Group can't verify the existence of a gap but
suggests it can only be eliminated by raising
the floor of salaries or by lump-sum increases on lower salaries.
Johnson said the rate of hiring falls off as'
the ratio of male to female faculty increases. "As a result of decreased hiring of
all faculty and the fact that women faculty
are the first to be dropped due to their lack
of seniority and lumping into the lower
categories such as lecturer and assistant
profs the ratio of women to men on faculty is
actually dropping."
Lundy said AUCE found the Buttedahl
report on staff to be a good report with some
excellent recommendations but Lundy said,
"In view of the situation at UBC the only
way to improve the status of women,
clerical and library employees is through
unionization."
She said there have been no salary increases since the reports release in October,
'■ presumably because the regular procedure
is for workers to be given July 1 raises.
Commenting on the committee's recommendation that unions should be encouraged
to give fair representation to. women
members, Lundy says: "We are forming an
independent union because we haven't seen
any union in Canada which is doing for
women the things we would like to do after
we are certified."
Helen Sonthoff, an english professor, who
worked on the search committee for the new
dean of women, said that the report "may
have influenced the setting up of the search
committee".
Many people seemed to think that the
dean's office was outmoded, but in the
process of work "absolutely changed their
minds," Sonthoff said.
Sonthoff said she could not see any substantial change in the position of women on
campus since the report's publication, but
"I didn't really expect to see great strides in
one year".
She did see some differences though.
The establishment of a Women's Studies
program, the presence of a few women on
seriate, and the increase of women students
in faculties formerly primarily male, are
"good", Sonthoff said.
A woman on staff, who asked not to be
identified for fear of losing her job, says
what little the administration has done to
implement the report has been done in such
secrecy that even those affected may not be
aware of the changes. Presumably the
secrecy allows the situation to be remedied
before it is exposed for what it is.
Arnie Meyers, head of information services, says the board of governors on Nov. 6
gave the president the power to implement
the proposals of Buttedahl's report which
are within the competence and financial
capability of the university.
Gage has asked John McLean, director of
personnel for various recommendations for
implementation. Specifically, he is awaiting
a report from McLean's staff on the ombudsperson proposal.
McLean said through Meyers his
department is applying the universities'
policy against discrimination in advertising,
hiring and looking into more equitable pay
sales. His staff is working up a new and
broader staff handbook. The question of a
departmental reference manual is under
study although McLean said such a manual
would be too inflexible and easily outdated,
outweighing the benefit of more open
communication with staff.
On the recommendation to give temporary preference to women applicants
where a male and female are equally
qualified, McLean said this is not being done,
spur to needed change in attitude
women has not yet been appointed, the acting dean has a
minute budget and the office is understaffed in comparison to last year.
To establish and oversee a grievance procedure
whereby students, faculty or staff who feel they have
been denied equal opportunity on the basis of their
sex can appeal:
No action.
There is no standard procedure established for dealing
with complaints of discrimination on the basis of sex.
To develop and oversee the equal education and
employment plan with the aid of an advisory council
of women faculty, staff and students
No action. No plan.
To assist faculty and students in developing intra-
departmental seminars  to  discuss and  identify
sexist content and attitudes in courses.
A meeting of all women's groups on the campus was
organized by the dean of women's office in the fall. More
meetings like this on a more consistent schedule are
badly needed.
To sponsor research and make recommendations
for   expanding   women's   studies   programs   and
courses.
No action. If the attitude expressed by deputy president
William Armstrong about women's studies last year ["I
am also worried about the suggestion that we establish a
department which will give degrees in women's studies.
To me this is the worst possible solution to these
problems. You're encouraging discrimination. I any
case you're turning out a second-rate degree because
you don't have access to all the material or to all the
faculty members you should."] is shared by many
members of the university, more women's studies
courses will be as hard won as the first one was.
ADMISSIONS AND ENROLMENT
We recommend the university make public its admissions policy, including a complete description of all
criteria and selection processes at all levels of the
university and it ensure none of these are discriminatory
on the grounds of sex, age or marital status.
No action.
We recommend a review of admissions appear ih the
annual report of the women's office.
No action expected. Because there is no plan for equal
education, and the acting dean of women has not been
given the authority, the money -or the data necessary to
create one, we do not expect the recommended review of
admissions will appear in the annual report this year.
We recommend the university conduct, department by
department, an annual analysis of its students profile to
' determine where women are underrepresented.
No action. This data exists but it has not been used to
formulate policies for change.
We recommend the president's office in consultation
with the women's office establish reasonable goals and
timetables to increase the representation of women.
No action.
We recommend where women are underrepresented
in a profession, the department or faculty should make
+fXi  active  effort  to  recruit  more  women   to   that
profession.
CURRICULUM
We recommend the senate encourage departments to
develop programs of courses and research into the
status and socialization of women and establish a
separate degree-granting department of women's
studies. Under the women's office, the university should
establish and fund a centre to act as a clearinghouse for
information on curriculum development, resources,
funding and research into all questions having to do with
women's role in society. This research centre should be
available to all students on campus wishing to use it in
conjunction with course work in any department or
program and to any students who wish to undertake
independent research projects; for credit under a
women's studies program.
UBC now has one credit interdisciplinary women's
studies course.
SUPPORT SERVICES
We recommend the university review all criteria for
making support services available to students and
eliminate those which discriminate on the basis of sex,
age, pregnancy or possible pregnancy, martial status,
number of dependents or financial status of parents.
No action.
We recommend that all publicly-funded grants, loans,
scholarships and fellowships be posted and be awarded
according to clearly established and published criteria.
No action.
We recommend the university recognize the need for
comprehensive childcare facilities on campus open to
the children of all faculty staff and students by:
While comprehensive childcare on the scale it is needed
is still far away, this is the area where most progress has
been made.
Providing land and by raising funds for capital
costs to establish permanent high quality physical
facilities for daycare;
No action.
Creating the position of co-ordinator of daycare
and providing funds to hire suitable staff for this
position.
The UBC Daycare Council does now have a paid coordinator. The salary is paid by the department of
human resources. The Daycare Council had the help of
the university in getting this salary.
Supporting through the co-ordinator the existing
parent    co-operative    daycare    centres    and
stimulating the development of a variety of forms of
childcare to serve from birth to 12 years;
The university has provided space for two more centres
this year, making a total of eight campus childcare
centres. There are new proposals developing and the
Daycare Council hopes to create new home care and
infant care programs.
PART-TIME STATUS
We recommend to assist part-time students:
The  faculties  revise  the   timing  and   residence
requirements for their degree programs;
No action.
There be no penalty for interruptions in the pursuit
of a degree;
No action.
Grants, loans and bursaries be given to part-time
students on the same basis as they are given to full-
time students.
Eileen Dailly says the minister council will discuss this
with federal government representatives at the next
fiscal talks.
STAFF AND FACULTY
We recommend women staff be encouraged and invited to apply for administrative posts in the university
and women staff be encouraged and invited to apply for
and be accepted into job categories other than those
traditionally labelled female.
Unsatisfactory. The personnel office has removed sexist
language from its ads. It has not followed the Buttedahl
Report's recommendation that "university ensure that
all advertising literature . . . makes it clear that women
are wanted in all occupations and professions."
We recommend that there be a review of the status of
all women faculty and staff with a view to remedying the
effects of past discrimination.
The personnel office has taken no positive action to
monitor hirings and ensure that discrimination does not
take place.
The university did recently hire its first woman stack
attendant.
We recommend a review of hiring promotion and
tenure-granting policies to determine whether extant
policies are those which best serve the university and the
women faculty and staff members.
Unsatisfactory. No consistent, comprehensive study of
policies is being done. The Buttedahl Report recommends that policies for staff be made clear, standard
and be written down and readily available. This has not
been done.
We recommend programs designed to recruit new
women to the faculty.
No action. At the present rate of hiring and with the
present habits of hiring, it will take 50 to 60 years to
equalize the numbers of men and women faculty
members. Because the present rate of hiring is not likely
to continue, but to decline, equalizing the numbers of
men and women will take longer than that.
We recommend a review of all moneys for travel and
research with a view to assuring equality in men's and
women's extra moneys.
No action.
We recommend a review of all employee benefits,
terms of all insurance, pension plans, to assure equality
for women.
In the last year the terms of the MSA and the Life
Insurance plans have changed. MSA benefits now cover
a woman's spouse and children in the same way they
have always covered a man's spouse and children. The
Life Insurance plan which used to consist of two
schedules — one for all faculty and all staff males, and
another with lower benefits for all staff females — now
consists of one schedule for all UBC employees, male
and female, academic and non-academic.
We recommend the university commit funds and cooperate in providing data so that the reviews and investigations necessary to the improvement of the status
of women at UBC can be undertaken.
Unsatisfactory. The women's action group in the fall
asked for data and a small amount of money from the
university. While some of those who were asked for
information were very co-operative and helpful, deputy
president William White refused us the salary data on
faculty and staff members which we received from him
last year, and money was not forthcoming.
SUMMARY
The UBC Daycare Council has a paid co-ordinator and
two new daycare centres. UBC has one credit interdisciplinary women's studies course, the MSA plan is
now equitable and the Life Insurance plan much improved, and the University of B.C. has one woman stack
attendant.
Other than that everything is the same as it was a year
ago. Women are still a small proportion of the faculty.
Women are still paid less than men in every academic
rank. The work women staff members do is still paid less
than the work men staff members do. Women still do not
occupy supervisory and administrative positions on the
staff in the same proportions as men. The university still
educates* fewer women than men and educates them
less.
And still, nothing is being done to change these circumstances. Page 8

Birds drop two games
Coach Peter Mullins was a picture of confidence Saturday night.
It is difficult to imagine why. The UBC Thunderbirds basketball team
had just lost their second straight game against the league-leading
University of Alberta Golden Bears which dropped UBC to third place.
It doesn't matter much that the Birds lost, but how they lost. On
Friday night, before 800 enthusiastic fans, they lost a cliffhanger by two
points, 67-65. On Saturday night, before another large crowd, they lost
78-66. But as Mullins was quick to point out, the score belied the facts.
"We had lots of opportunities, but nobody to put the ball into the
basket," said Mullins. "It's simply a matter of experience."
The Birds stuck with the Bears throughout the first game, only to lose
when what would have been the game-tying basket bobbled around the
rim while the buzzer went to end the game — then dropped in.
The turning point in Saturday's game was a technical foul called on
the Bears early in the second half when they were ahead 51-50. The
Birds tied the score, then surged ahead, 54-51.
"Their poise is superficial," said Mullins later, "and that technical
rattled them. But we couldn't capitalize."
As a result, the Bears quickly regained their poise outscoring the
hosts 12-1 over a stretch of a few minutes to take the lead for good. Not
only could the Birds not score from the field, but from the foul line they
were practically shut out.
With six minutes to go the Bears tried to stall. But even though they
broke the stall three times and drew three fouls from the Bears, they
couldn't score enough to bring the Bears within range again.

Alberta's goalie, deflected a

Saturday night in Calgary, the
Dinosaurs got their winning goal
from UBC netminder Fred
Masuch. Masuch trapped a shot by
Gord Engele which the referee told
him to play, and in his attempt to
clear it steered it in the net with his
glove.
The third period goal gave
Calgary a 2-1 win and a sweep of
the series. They crushed the Birds
8-4 Friday night.
UBC left winger Rich Longpre
tied the score 1-1 in the second
period Saturday, after Calgary's
Wayne Forsey scored in the first.
Bird coach Bob Hindmarch said
Friday's debacle was, "The worst
game I've seen a UBC team play in
five years."
Hindmarch felt the Birds
recovered in the second game, as
the score indicated, but were
outplayed by the Dinos in both
outings.
He said the Dinos are starting to
live up to their potential.
"Calgary's a funny team, they
have probably the best material in
the league and yet didn't give us
too much trouble at the start of the
season."
UBC scorers Friday were Bill
Gaston, Chuck Carignan, Yoshio
Hoshino and Longpre.
