Array English lose 1, dump 2
Charging UBC's English
department has no room for her
academic abilities, women's
studies organizer Annette Kolodny
is leaving UBC.
And the department will also lose
two other professors this year; one
who was denied tenure and the
other who was, in effect, fired.
Assistant professor Peter Sch-
wenger has been told by department head Robert Jordan he won't
receive tenure next year. The fired
prof has asked to remain
anonymous pending an appeal.
Kolodny said Monday she is
leaving because she has not been
able to fully use her training.
"This place wears you down,"
she said. "To try and effect, any
change at this university, even of
the most minimal sort, is difficult
and wearing."
Kolodny's year-long struggle for
a women's studies programs
resulted in its establishment this
year. Kolodny teaches the course
with three other UBC faculty
members. It has received much
praise from both students and
Kolodny, who has a doctorate
from the University of California
at Berkeley, taught at Berkeley
and Yale before coming to UBC.
She has taught at UBC for four
years and was due for tenure
consideration next year.
Kolodny said she was trained in
interdisciplinary American studies
and colonial and contemporary
American literature.
"Most of my program assignments have been in English
literature," she said. "With the
exception of women's studies, I
have not been able to teach in interdisciplinary studies."
"I thought I was being hired to
teach American literature."
Kolodny said she believes there
is no room for her at UBC. She said
the English department is not set
up in a way to make use of the
talents of its various members.
"The department is top heavy
with tenured people in senior ranks
while there are some junior faculty
with better qualifications." These
include better education, better
academic qualifications and in
some cases better teaching ability,
she said.
"Even granting that these senior
people are genuinely concerned
about superior teaching and
scholarship in this department, I
would still question whether they
are in all cases intellectually
qualified to make accurate
judgment on the quality of the
work of junior staff who may be
doing experimental or cross
disciplinary studies or different
kinds of criticism," she said.
"As a result of this, they opt
more for quantity of publication
rather than quality."
Kolodny said she is not sure of
the fate of the women's studies
program. "I'm apprehensive about
the university's commitment of
properly staffing and economically
supporting the program," she said.
"The women's studies program
has been very successful for both
students and teachers."
Kolodny is not the only casualty
in the English department this
year. Assistant professor Peter
Schwenger has been told he will not
receive tenure next year. Schwenger said department head
Robert Jordan told him the tenure
committee felt his research had
not gone on with the kind of
0 momentum it should have.
Jordan also told him his teaching
record was not outstanding, though
"I'm not sure I can fault anybody
technically," Schwenger said
Monday. "Just their taste, which is
Schwenger has published one
article since coming to UBC and
has been working on a book now
being considered by a Canadian
"I don't think this (tenure) vote
defines my potentials or
capabilities," he said. "The whole
thing is loaded with intangibles
which I found depressing, but I
can't complain."
All full and associate professors
with tenure can vote on tenure
Schwenger said he has an option
of staying at UBC for another year
but won't "if I can help it."
"The UBC English department is
not paradise," he said. "It would
be psychologically unhealthy to
stay here."
In addition to Schwenger, The
Ubyssey also learned Monday that
another member of the English
department has been denied
reappointment, and in effect, fired.
The assistant professor, who asked
not to be identified, was not due for
tenure consideration until next
year.  The  decision   is  currently
:Vol. LV, No. 58
being appealed.
Sources within the department
told The Ubyssey Monday seven
professors were up for reappointment this year and all but one were
approved. The procedure is usually
a mere formality.
"There's always a low man on
the totem pole," the source said.

Towers Beach opponents clash
By JAKE van der KAMP
A Vancouver park board
meeting Monday showed the differences between board commissioners and those opposing the
erosion_control blanket proposed
for Towers Beach are substantial
and that emotions are heated.
The meeting at the parks board
offices on Beach was attended by
about 70 opponents to the scheme
to put a gravel and sand erosion
control blanket on the beach.
Bill Fleming, Sierra Club representative, said he wants the beach
to remain in as natural a state as
The proposed erosion control
scheme is unnatural and
inadequate, he said.
"The present scheme has not
been discussed in public and there
have not been enough studies done
to show whether it will work," said
But board chairman Art Cowie
insisted the scheme had been
discussed in public and is well
"It was openly discussed at these
meetings which anyone is free to
"We did investigate other plans
and we have a fair amount of
public support for our scheme," he
Another opponent of the scheme,
consulting geologist Roy Blunden,
said he believes roads will have to
be constructed on the beach to
maintain the erosion control
He said holes will constantly
appear in the sand and gravel
which will have to be filled.
It will be impossible, he said, to
bring the sand down the trails
which commissioners maintain
will be the sole access to the beach.
But commissioner Bill McCreary
was adamant there will no road of
any kind on the beach.
"Any conjecture of roads out
there and I'm with you 100 per
cent, - I'd be out there demonstrating with you. We've never
discussed roadbeds. I can assure
you there will be no road," he said.
A third speaker against the
project, electrical engineer Peter
Greystone, said he opposes the
plan because no study has been
undertaken which shows the sand
and gravel blanket is a valid way of
stopping erosion.
The city engineers on the job for
17 years have yet to take a
measurement on how the erosion
control blanket works, he said.
"All your decisions were based
on  guesses.   The  preliminary
studies  were  done   by   aerial-
photography and a walk along the
"I've heard the whole erosion
control blanket could wash away in
one winter."
Commissioner George Puil,
obviously annoyed by the
allegations Greystone made,
charged him with lying.
"I say this is a lie that we have no
reports," he said. "We have and
what makes your opinions better
than those of the experts we hired?
"We've listened to the alternatives and I've come to the
conclusion that something has to
be done right now."
Commissioner Sandy Robertson
agreed and said if the project is not
started until well into summer, the
board may not have the money to
do it because of rising construction
The board delayed a vote on
continuing the project but Cowie
said the results of the vote and a
date when work on the beach will
restart, will be made public.
The board appeared to
unanimously favor continuing the
A bulldozer, front-end loader and
a truck were still on Towers Beach
Monday afternooh.
An employee of Construction
Cartage Ltd., which contracted to
do the work, and a guard the
company has hired were on the
beach. Both were only taking care
of the machines.
An employee of the park board
had come to the beach during the
morning and left six signs warning
1 people to stay away from the area
where the equipment is located.
The signs which say the area is
closed to the public for safety
reasons were stored in a shack.
Cowie has not said if the whole
beach is closed or just a part of it.
At a public meeting on the
University Endowment Lands in
John Oliver high school Wednesday, he said nothing was closed
down, only that people are simply
being asked to stay away.
But when Peter Chataway, a
member of save the beach people
confronted Cowie with a copy of a
motion passed March 4 at a special
meeting of the park board which
states the beach is closed.
He quibbled about the issue and
told Chataway he didn't want to
talk with him any more because he
never listened and never changed
his mind. Page 2

Strong bill of rights urged in liberties bid
Canada should have a bill of rights that
takes precedence over all federal and
provincial laws and is not hard to amend, a
UBC history professor said Friday.
At a discussion sponsored by the Alma
Mater Society's academic activities club and
the AMS speakers and education committees,
Murray Greenwood gave a talk on civil
liberties in Canada.
He began by outlining John Stuart Mill's
concept of civil liberties.
"According to Mill, an individual is free to
express his opinions and to act in any way
except where that activity or opinion harms
"Mill's concept is still usable and is used,
for example, in the argument to legalize
marijuana, he said.
But in Canada, there have been numerous
occasions when civil liberties have been
suspended or infringed upon. After the
Winnipeg general strike, section 98 of the
Criminal Code was passed outlawing anyone
who was a member of an organization advocating the violent overthrow of the
government. The most recent example was
the use of the War Measures Act to handle the
Quebec crisis in 1970 when all civil liberties
were suspended.
"Although the Diefenbaker bill of rights
was passed in 1961, it was not until 1970 that it
was interpreted in court to override previous
legislation — in the famous 'dry bones' case,"
said Greenwood.
Because of this and incidents such as the
War Measures Act, Canada needs a bill of
rights that cannot be so easily be set aside, he
"However, it would be a mistake to make a
bill of rights a part of the Canadian con-
stituion, as in the USA," said Greenwood.
"It would be difficult to get the necessary
unanimous consent of all the provinces. Also,
this would tend to freeze the concept of civil
liberties — but these concepts change.
"For example, if such a bill of rights had
been passed in Canada in the 1890's, there
would probably have been a lot of property
rights in it — perhaps anti-minimum wage
sections. The solution is to have a bill of rights
with some roadblocks in front of its removal
or change — maybe a two-thirds majority of
parliament for changes."

Act not all bad-chairman Young
The current Universities Act is
"not a bad act" says the man
heading the provincial government's special committee to
recommend changes in it.
"There seems to be a high desire
to retain the act as it is," said
Walter Young, chairman of the
committee on university governance.
"I think one thing is true — the
present act is not a bad act."
Young's five-member committee, responsible for proposing
act reforms to education minister
Eileen Dailly, was at UBC Friday
to hear four briefs.
Young      replaced       former
education commissioner John
Bremer as committee chairman
after Premier Dave Barrett called
Bremer "a bit of a failure" on a
television program earlier this
year. Dailly officially fired Bremer
several days later.
Young said Friday the committee, which issued a preliminary
working paper last December, will
send its final report to Victoria
sometime next month.
The committee's report failed to
recommend radical changes in the
current structures of B.C.'s three
universities current structures
although reforms in the compositions of senates and board of
governors were suggested.

Ubyssey Appointments Editor
As told to
Ubyssey staffers elected Lesley Krueger editor of
the 1974-75 paper, Monday.
After a long and vigorous campaign which started
shortly after the bombing of Pearl Harbor, Krueger
swept easily to power on a 'progressive fascism'
platform, soundly defeating the Don Hubbert-Pookie
the Bunny triumvirate who had bitterly contested
Krueger's qualifications to provide an adequate
defence for the Austin Brewins goalie.
Krueger's twin sister, Lesley, also a Ubyssey
staffer, demanded a recount, claiming 15 out of 30
staffers were ineligible to vote because they could not
spell 'rhinocerous'.
Ubyssey rhinocerous appointments officer John
Andersen dismissed Krueger's claim as "a red
rhinocerous" she had just thrown in to obstruct'
^election procedure.
"Anyway, Krueger's full of shit," Andersen continued. "Everyone knows Lesley doesn't have a twin
sister. She's really a schizo."
"I disagree completely," Ubyssey co-editor
Vaughn Palmer, a.k.a. the Red Rhinocerous, who
weighs two tons, told The Ubyssey. "A frail young
thing like Lesley and Lesley couldn't even lift me, let
alone toss me."
Palmer's co-editor Michael Sasges, who had just
scored two out of three falls on himself in a 20-minute
duration match, said while stomping on himself
outside the ring "we don't believe this schizo shit."
"It's all a conspiracy by the lunatic fringe, who
make up most of the staff," he said. "Why just the

resembles a rutabaga, said the Krueger twins would

"Alter all, the editorship is basically a public
relations job," Coull said, nurturing a small rodentlike object between his thighs.
In a moving valedictory address to the wall,
Rhinocerous Liberation Front guerillas Rick Lymer
and Ryon Guedes maintained their emphasis on the
editorship being responsible for co-ordinating frisbee
fights and nosebleeds.
"Please take the festering boils out of the office and
put them on Jake van der Kamp's ass, where they
belong," Guedes and Lymer said.
Van der Kamp and staffers Doug Rushton and Boyd
McConnell were notably distraught.
"Does this mean I'm not editor?" McConnell
"It means you're the house gynecologist," Rushton
"Maybe you could look at the boil on my ass
sometime," van der Kamp told McConnell.
Congratulations included letters and telegrams
from federal finance minister John Turner, who
asked Krueger for a date with her sister; Nathan
Davidowitz, who also sent her a subscription to the
Buzzer and David Dick, who wants his picture back.
reforms — would be considered
The committee heard Friday
briefs from the Coalition on
University Reform, the Canadian
Association of University
Teachers, and the UBC and Simon
Fraser University senates.
The CAUT brief called for "an
intermediary body between
universities and the government,"
similar to the one outlined in the
December working paper.
However, the brief said "CAUT
opposes the view of the working
paper that all members of the
proposed commission be appointed
by the government."
Instead, the brief recommended,
the commission should "be
composed in equal numbers of
appointees of the government and
of the university community."
The CAUT brief asked the
commission "be established by
statute", saying purely advisory
commissions attempted elsewhere
"have serious deficencies, notably
that they command less respec-
t. . ."
The CAUT also asked for
statutory provisions in the
Universities Act regarding faculty
dismissal. It recommended an
arbitration board system be set up
with procedures similar to regular
law courts.
The coalition submitted a brief
similar to the one it presented at
the February hearings. The brief
called for a unicameral system,
(an amalgamation of the board of
governors and the senate), with
equal representation for students,
faculty and community representatives on the single body.
"The majority of members of the
unicameral body should be elected
by their constitutencies and subject to immediate recall. The
president of the university should
be elected by the unicameral body
and shall be its chairperson. The
president should be subject to
recall," the brief said.
The brief also requested a
secretariat responsible for
recording and managing official
business be established and women
be given true equality within the
UBC senate's brief called for
retention of the current bicameral
governing system but asked,
contradicting the working paper,
faculty members be represented
on an expanded board of governors.
SFU senate's brief was largely
incomplete, reflecting indecision
and major disagreements within
the body. However, its brief asked
for enabling legislation permitting
a university to test a unicameral
system "should it wish to do so."

The board executive committee

last week, charging the association
with financial mismanagement,
internal bickering and alleged
tampering with the upcoming
However, according to ESA
president Bill O'Mahoney, "the
figures prove just the opposite —
financially we did a fantastic job.
This year would have marked the
first time the ESA ever finished in
the black. When we took over in
May, there was a deficit of $13,000;
by the end of this year, there would
have been a surplus of $10,000."
The university's objections
regarding the infighting in the ESA
was "strange", O'Mahoney said.
"They criticize us for taking
legal actions against each other
and reinstating past members. In
one instance, the university actually forced us, through pressure
from the ombudsman's office to
reinstate somebody. Now, they're
putting us down because we did
what they wanted us to do."
Assistant to the university rector
Michael Sheldon disagrees. "You
just have to look at what the ESA
has done over the past couple of
years to see why the board of
governors did this. In November of
1972 there was tampering with the
elections.   . In     March     1973,
nomination papers were
destroyed. Lately it was learned
that there was another attempt to
tamper with the elections."
Engineering rep and presidential
candidate David Giggey said, "I
was not consulted in the
aforementioned decision, nor was
anyone else, except Bill
O'Mahoney. Therefore the board of
Governors chose to deprive
10,000 students of their legitimate
association, with prior notification
of but one student."
According to the official
statement from the board of
governors, the board of trustees
shall assume interim responsibility for all fiscas and non-f iscas
matters which would normally fall
within the jurisdiction of the
executive council of the ESA.

Prof leaving
cue for change
English professor Annette Kolodny, an organizer of
the accredited women's studies program, is leaving UBC.
And she has been given good reason to quit.
She says she cannot use her training on campus; her
department and people in it have stifled her ability and
attempted to box it in a department manner.
Her loss to the campus is a disgrace.
She was a person attempting change in a small way
within the university; the university opposed her.
Her leaving is not isolated — too many junior profs
with good ideas, with teaching ability and with sympathy to
students have been forced to resign in the past.
Every student in every faculty knows of good
teachers, often junior, forced to leave the campus.
The provincial government is also aware of them.
And naturally the government is suspicious of the
university, which means particularly those administrative
officials now moaning the blues because they aren't getting
enough money from the government for programs.
The government cannot be expected to believe the
university will act progressively when profs like Kolodny are
forced out.
The times are changing; so must the attitude of the
administration and some senior profs.
If their thinking does not change, they must go. The
university should no longer be forced to suffer their tenure
and the consequences of it.
The government has indicated through its budget that
it wants change; profs with new programs want change;
students want change if the enrolment in programs like
women's studies are an indication.
It's that time. Let's get going so UBC won't lose
another Annette Kolodny.
The Ubyssey wishes to correct and retract statements
about Alma Mater Society building manager Graeme Vance
made in the March 5 issue of the paper.
It was erroneously reported in a page 4 editorial that
"Vance has inaugurated a program of free beer in the Pit for
all his buddies."
A page 1 story referring to Vance and an AMS
executive member was also erroneously headlined 'Two
hacks receive free beer."
The Ubyssey greatly regrets if these statements, either
individually or in concert, have given anyone the impression
that Vance has abused his privileges as building manager
since we are satisfied this has not been the case.
Because the editorial was intended as a humorous
comment, the paper would like to apologize for any
inconvenience our incorrect statements may have caused

assumption with which they were
presented: that presumably intelligent university students should
be able to arrive at the conclusion
that homosexuality is just one
aspect of a whole spectrum of what
is regarded as normal sexual
relationships. We beg to differ,
wishing to argue that there are
other points of view, not with the
intention of establishing vigilante
groups to purge the campus, but
simply let it be known that there
are other views. Likewise; we run
the risk of being accused of
representing latent homosexual
tendencies which gays know lie
behind the rantings of their most
ardent persecutors. Ironically, the
same principle applies to the attacks on biblical faith.
The essence of the matter is that
homosexuality is not a problem
isolated all on its own but is indicative of a   general  confusion
surrounding sexual identity today.
We must be honest, stop blaming
the Victorians and realize that in
the 50 years since D. H. Lawrence,
women and men are no closer to
realizing true sexual fulfilment
than before. One might think that
the boom in erotic literature and
the how-to books describing the
technical points of bedroom
acrobatics indicate a renaissance
in the Art of Love. In actual fact,
the very opposite in true: sales of
how-to books like Popular
Plumbing never soar unless the
pipes are leaking and the toilets
flooding. The glut of sensuous
techniques really tells us that
people are miserable on their
What is the problem? (for only
then can we find a solution).
Humanity has rejected the
spiritual realities of its total
makeup and reduced itself to the
level of a machine. All -that
becomes important is sensual
stimulation to the extreme that we
employ Masters and Johnson to
scientifically analyze the
maximum   points   of   electro-
chemical sensitivity. To take it to
the absurd, Professor H. D. Block
of Cornell claims that man-
machine sex relationships will
soon be practicable and desirable.
On the level of an electro-chemical
machine, it doesn't matter how sex
is done because 'having sex" now
means doing whatever feels good,
no matter who it's with or what it's
with. Sex is reduced to a form of
masterbation (sic) because it is
merely self-gratification. The
obsession for more erotic forms of
sensuality (not sexuality anymore)
only logically extends into
homosexuality, acting on the
realization that a man understands
the specific pleasures of a man's
body better than any woman could,
and vice versa.
Humanity has rejected its
biblical reference point and is
thrown back on itself, poking
around in its decay, hopeful of
finding the clues to the mystery of
human sexuality and all the while,
unable to acccpet the possibility of
no answers when there seems to be
no clues. The solution is to
recognize and admit that there is a
Streaking fad bared
Streakermania has hit America!
Dashing barefoot from the ankles
up across campus has replaced
goldfish swallowing, phone booth
stuffing and political disturbances
as the number one extracurricular
activity. Some college officials see
it as a refreshingly non-violent way
for boys and girls to air their differences!
The National Safety Council, in
the interests of public service,
would like to "expose" a few safety
hazards for streakers.
Stripped down to the bare
essentials, the council has uncovered these safety rules.
If you must streak:
Wear sneakers. They give better
traction for that all important
speed and tennies protect your
tootsies from harm. A cut foot may
put an end to your streaking
Wear reflectorized tape. This is
especially important for night
streaking. Fashion "bumper
numbers" or "tail lights" from
tape. Imaginatively adorn your
anatomy with tape on back, sides
and front so that you don't end up
among the streaking wounded;
Keep your eyes peeled. Watch
out for cars, campus excavation
holes, wire chains around parking
lots, fences. You may miss more
than your classes if you don't wear
your glasses! Tips on your
clothesless   carriage   —   eyes
straight ahead and locked in on
Although the National Safety
Council doesn't condone streaking,
the naked truth is that many
college campuses will be "buffer
zoned" this weekend. So if your
flesh is willing this weekend, make
sure you have a streak — of good

We would like to express our
appreciation and congratulations
to the first-year dental class from
UBC on behalf of the citizens of
Blaine, Wash., for their impromptu, but well brought off
streak Saturday night. These
college students, will long be
remembered   in   the   annals   of
Blaine's history for taking part in
Blaine's first streak. The citizens
here greeted the dental students,
as they raced down Main Street,
with cheers and applause. The
Wagon Wheel tavern was pleased
to provide free refreshments for
the streakers after they returned
fully clothed to the pub. All in all,
an event like this really helps to
give our hamlet character and a
sense of civic pride. Thanks again
to your dental students.

Interesting! Such simple, safe

Males, females and whatever
else has been running around our
unique university and are
delighted (it appears) at the
growing opportunities to "satisfy"
the many members and non-
members of our campus.
One cannot really criticize
streakers because as all is fair in
love and war, I suppose all is fair in
happiness and exposure. As long as
the dazzling, daring damsels feel
dignified and the bold, brave boys
feel inclined, I wish them both
much success and hope they don't
catch cold.

physical and spiritual reality to the
sexual polarities of male and
female. We are made in the image
of God; male and female he made
us and so our sexuality, both
physical and spiritual, is rooted in
the very essence of God. Ironically,
today people are opting for the
Eastern religions which may have
caused the mess in the first place,
if we take the word of the Hare
Krishnas' who claim that Plato
was influenced by the Vedas. The
spirit/body dichotomy then seeped
into Jewish/Christian thought
from Plato and thus the bad press
for sex in Western religions. Plato,
like the Eastern religions, regards
the spiritual as the ultimate reality
and thus regards the physical and
material (including sexuality) as
an evil that must be escaped. Yet,
denial of the material is not
biblical and we must be called
back to the Judeo-Christian affirmation that sexuality is good
and rooted in the very nature of the
Ironically, in spite of the overflow of sensuality today, we are
anti-sexual. We are afraid of our
sexuality and find ourselves in the
absurd position of the male who
advertised "non-sexist male
looking for female roommate." If
he was really "non-sexist, why
worry whether the roommate is
male or female? All the
sloganeering about equality has
made us afraid to admit differences and differences which
amount to more than mere
plumbing, as many doctors will tell
you. Many who pride themselves
on being the least "sexist," who
strive to be liberated from "sexist"
oppression, turn out to be the most
"sexist" and the most oppressive.
They may be the ones who finally
say "better than..." Let us
rather be free to recognize, admit
and enjoy our differences. If you
think that to be female is "less
than," then recognize that you
have sumitted to a society that has
conditioned you to think that.
Human sexuality is meant to be a
dialogue between male and female
and to refuse that is to adopt a false
identity. The result is that the
relationship between two men or
two women pretends to be sexual
and the interplay between
masculine and feminine tends to
sneak in, either in fantasy or in role
It should "be clear that problems
of sexual identity are common to
all women and men, not only to
homosexuals, for homosexuals are
only acting out the ultimate logic of
the basic human sexual crises.
They dare to do openly what we all
do inwardly: he or she has denied
dependence upon the opposite sex.
The solution does not lie in blindly
and indiscriminately accepting to
debunk biblical faith. The church
(believers, not buildings) has
always been seen as the bride and
Christ, the .bridegroom. Humanity
and the Hebrews are portrayed
(most graphically by the prophet
Hosea) as whoring after false gods.
So too, many must return to God,
his masculine counterpart
(bridegroom), in order to receive
fulfillment for humanity's inherent
feminity (bride) in relation to God.
If we do not, Paul makes clear that
the result of our whoring is confusion of sexual roles (Romans 1
and 2).
As far as our brother quoting
Bible verses in a March 5 letter, we
caution him against not giving
explanations, for Paul, after giving
the long list of immoralities, very
significantly says "... and such
were some of you." That makes all
the difference in the world and
emphasizes that God is anxious to
redeem people through Christ and
not condemn. Redemption, part of
which involves restoring broken
sexuality, is possible as evidenced
by the Genesis community at
Berkeley, from whose publication,
Sex and the Spirit, much of this
material was taken. Obviously this
letter cannot claim to be an
exhaustive treatment of the
problem, if simply from the fact
that we are not omniscience. Let it
be known that there are other

UBC nets round robin, title
The UBC Thunderettes
volleyball team finished their
season undefeated, winning the
Canadian women's intercollegiate
athletic union championships for
the second straight year.
The Thunderettes coihpleted the
round-robin in first place with four
wins and no losses. They downed
the University of New Brunswick
in the semi-finals and fought off
University of Western Ontario's
rally in the finals, taking the title
match three games to two.
UBC started out with 15-0, 15-10
wins against Sherbrooke with
Lynne. Day serving all 15 points in
the opener.
In round two the Thunderettes
had little difficulty disposing of
Winnipeg 15-5,15-4. Winnipeg upset
powerhouse Manitoba for the
Great Plains championship but
had trouble taking more than one
point at a time.
In Friday's play Western downed
Winnipeg 15-8 and 15-9. New
Brunswick bounced back from a 2-
1 loss to fifth-place finisher
Sherbrooke to push Western to 16-
14 and 15-11.
In the first game New Brunswick
took an incredible 8-0 lead and
increased it to 10-1 and 13-4. New
Brunswick failed to take the game
when they were ahead 14-8 and
Western rallied to the 16-14 victory.
The key game in the round-robin
came Saturday morning with UBC
taking on Western Ontario. UBC
opened with a 3-0 lead but Western
went ahead with a commanding 11-
4 score. The Thunderettes pulled
together to tie the score 11-11.
Although Western took the next
two points, UBC took the game 15-
In the second game the Thunderettes dropped the first point but
grabbed the upper hand at 5-2, 6-3
and 8-4. Western closed the gap,
tying the game at 11-all and went
ahead 13-11 before UBC rallied to
win 15-13.
UBC finished off their round-
robin matches with 15-8, 15-4
victories over New Brunswick.
Western's last match did not go as
smoothly. Sherbrooke built up a 10-
5 margin in the first game and a 13-
6 lead in the second. Western had to
come from behind twice to pull off
15-13, 15-13 wins.
At the end of round-robin play,
UBC was first with a 4r0 record
while Western was second with a 3-
1 record. Winnipeg, New Brunswick and Sherbrooke each had
one win and three losses. Using
CWIAU tie-breaking rules, Winnipeg was declared third and New
Brunswick fourth.

CONFLICT ... girl meets ball
UBC took their semi-final match
against New Brunswick 15-4, 15-7
and Western downed Winnipeg 15-
5, 15-13.
UBC went into the finals with a
decided edge. They were the
defending champions, they had an
undefeated record and they had the
support of the crowd. Western had
already lost to UBC and were very
inconsistent in their play. Western
had a 98 points against compared
to UBC's 57. For the same number
of games Western's big four on
Canada's number two team were
no match for the Thunderettes. Led
by Betty Baxter, the Thunderettes
had the solid support of Sandi Buhr
and Lynne Day as well as Karen
Johnson, Sharon Williams and
Vickey Sahota.
UBC took a commanding 13-1
lead in the first game on a superior
show of strength. Western attempted a comeback but only got
to eight points before the Thunderettes hit 15. In the second game,
UBC seemed to lose their attack.
Western turned a 5-1 deficit into a
14-10 lead, then took the game 15-
12. The score climbed slowly in the
next game with UBC slightly ahead
until Western tied it eight all. From
then on it was the Thunderettes'
game, the final score — 15-9.
In the fourth game, Western took
over at 5-4 and never lost the advantage. UBC came from a 13-8
deficit to within one point of
Western but lost 15-12.
The fifth and deciding game was
UBC's. Western had a chance to
stay in contention when they
narrowed UBC's 6-2 lead to 6-5.
Failing to pull ahead, they were
never given another chance. UBC
won by a decisive 15-6 margin.
The final match was closer than
expected with Western putting in a
performance far superior to their
round-robin efforts. Service errors
at key points throughout the match
kept the tension high but proved
costly to both sides. While Baxter
was outstanding for the Thunderettes, the victory was a team
effort. Buhr and Day added hitting
strength while setters Williams
and Sahota set up their attack. The
entire squad put up a superb
defence, picking up Western's
spikes and tips.
On the other hand, the Ontario
crew were noticeably tired by the
fifth game. A slow defence was
easily penetrated by UBC hitters
and when the ball was recovered,
Western was unable to set up a
good spike.

Amid conflict of interest charges
Uof A housing head quits
EDMONTON (CUP) — The manager of the
University of Alberta Students' Union's housing union
building has resigned amid rumors of conflict of
Fulton Frederickson's resignation is effective
immediately, according to student union general
manager Darrel Ness.
When asked whether Frederickson's resignation
was directly linked with the conflict of interest
charges, Ness said he can not make any comment
Student councillors alleged while the maintenance
firm Scandinavian Janitors was under contract to
service the Hub from August 1972 to August 1973
Frederickson was receiving monthly cheques of $100
from the firm.
The question was originally raised in a student
council meeting Feb. 11 by science rep Jim Talbot. "I
want a public statement about it," Talbot said, by
March 1.
Asked if he felt the matter should be pursued further, or if the council would consider pursuing it
further, Talbot said, "Council has shown a decided
reluctance to prosecute these things ... in the past.
You know what happened with Delaney — nothing."
Patrick Delaney, former academic vice president
of the students' council, resigned when it was
discovered last month that he had received loans to
attend conferences on behalf of the U of A students'
union but had failed to pay them back.
"Judging on council's past record they're going to
accept his resignation and let it go at that," Talbot

Progress slow on illegible

The report on illegible vertical

overdue, has not yet been completed.
That's what research graphics
committee chairman Richard
Seaton said Monday, responding to
questions on the final incomplete
part of the report — which he is
supposed to be writing.
Seaton, an associate professor in
architecture and environmental
psychology, told The Ubyssey
completion of the report was
delayed while he worked on the
architecture school exhibit at the
Vancouver art gallery.
"However, I spent yesterday
(Sunday) finishing it," he said.
When asked why he was just
finishing the report when he said
Jan. 28 it was already being typed
out, Seaton explained it is the final
draft of the report he is now
working on.
But it's quite close to being
finished," he said. "I see no difficulty in getting it out by this

TORONTO (CUP) — Students at
the social work faculty at the
University of Toronto returned to
classes March 6 after a two-day
boycott of classes in an effort to
achieve parity.
Students on the "information
line" formed outside the social
work building reported the boycott
was successful. They estimated 75
per cent of the 200-member student
body stayed away from classes
Monday and Tuesday, March 4 and
But students, all of whom are in
masters' degree programs, still
have no indication on the success of
their demands.
The boycott was called by the
student union "to allow the faculty
time to reach consensus on the
agreements reached thus far by
the teaching and student
negotiating teams."
Students said they feel they have
not received a satisfactory written
reply to their demands and the
boycott was the only effective
method to get action.
On Feb. 28 a faculty meeting
decided the whole teaching faculty
would break into six groups with
each group discussing student
union demands. Since then these
faculty groups have been engaged
in meetings.
Faculty intend to present their
decisions to the student union on
March 8. There is no indication
whether the faculty will grant
A student union meeting
March 5 moved that a parity admissions committee be created to

Computer counts votes
The Alma Mater Society will save money on this year's senate elections by having a computer instead of students count returns, says the
society's returning officer.
Ron Dumont said Monday the society normally gives $40 worth of Pit
tokens and about $20 in doughnuts and coke to ballot counters, but will
only pay about $25 for computing centre time.
The three vacant faculty positions on senate have been acclaimed.
Gordon Funt, commerce 3; Ellen Paul, education 3; and Charlene
Moriarity, science 3; will serve for two years.
Moriarity is already science undergraduate society president.
Running for two two-year terms as senator-at-large are: Jan
Smulders, commerce 3; Greg Peet, commerce 2; Katharine Younge,
law 2; Donald Kassa, commerce 3.
