elitist of "complete arrogance"
who blatantly ignores student

Dailly said McGeer shows a
personal interest in the advantages
of private schools over public
schools. She added that usually
McGeer shows a complete inability
to comprehend what makes the
average student grow and develop.
(McGeer's own children all attended private institutions.)
"He's genuinely not concerned
with students. He has a very narrow
view of development in a child. He
should be leaving many major

Socreds 'fill 'er up' on SFU board
The provincial government has decided to run a
direct pipeline into Simon Fraser University's board of
Newly appointed board member Ben Macdonald is
president and managing director of Chevron Canada
Ltd. and a director of the Trans-Mountain Pipeline
"It's going to be the first time I've been involved in
that kind of activity," Macdonald said of his appointment to the board last week.
Macdonald is also a member of the exlusive
Vancouver Club, the Vancouver Board of Trade, the
Canadian Chamber of Commerce, the Canadian
Manufacturers Association and is vice-chairman of
the Employer's Council of B.C.
Other board members criticized Macdonald's
"We don't need another member of the Employers
Council on the board, but what do you expect from
the Socreds?" staff board member Reva Clavier said.
Bill Hamilton, president of the Employer's Council,
is also on the SFU board.
"I would have preferred a more community minded
person rather than a top capitalist," said student
board member Ted Glas.
Macdonald said he would be able to make a
valuable contribution to the board.
"My skills lie in the area of management."
He admitted a lack of knowlege about university
"I can't address any issues until I find out what they
Macdonald has been serving on an advisory board
to SFU's master of business administration program
since July.
Although a vacancy already existed on the board,
Macdonald will be replacing NDP appointee Jane
Conway. She said Wednesday she did not want
another term on the board, and probably would not
have gotten one if she did.
The vacancy was created last spring when board
member Paul Cote was elected chancellor of the

needs of their community."
Dailly said McGeer is not
fulfilling his role as education
"fylbst of his actions since
becoming education minister show
complete arrogance," she said.
"There's a dangerous trend
towards centralization. Look at the
legislation passed sincehe came in.
With community colleges he
literally emasculated local and
regional control by college
She said students should ask
McGeer why the Socreds have cut
down student grants and why
money has been cut off the current
education budget.
"It's crazy," she said.
Dailly said McGeer has changed
all the appointments to UBC's
board of governors which she made
while NDP education minister,
including firing two in the middle
of their terms. She added that
Socred appointments to the board
are extremely discouraging, with a

If the $2 Alma Mater Society fee
referendum does not pass next week
there will be major cuts in studeni:
services, AMS finance director
Glenn Wong said Wednesday.
"If it doesn't pass you can kiss
away intramurals, Speakeasy, the
art gallery and programs like free
musicians, War Memorial gym
concerts, and lunchtime speeches.
We just won't have them
anymore," said Wong.
"And new programs like bus
passes, we're just not going to have
the time or the money."
Wong said that out of th;
existing $36 AMS fee each student
pays, only $9 actually is used for
student services, while the rest goes
into payment for the pool, SUB and
varsity sports.
"That $9 is the same $9 that they
(UBC students) paid in 1947," said
Wong. "There has not been an
increase in operating costs since
This was fine in the '50s and '60s
when the number of students was
increasing, but now enrolment is
basically fixed and costs are rising,
he said.
Wong said the main reason the
AMS has problems getting suppoit
for fee increases is that students do
not know what it does and do net
realize which services it provides.
"The $9 AMS operating fee
covers Pit office staff salaries,
student government, The Ubyssey,
the women's committee, programs
and concerts, and bus passes, which
are saving everyone 10 bucks this
"The reason I say the bus passes
came out of the* nine dollars is that
it's the result of a direct effort of
student government," Wong said.
All rooms in SUB are currently
available to any AMS group or club
wishing to use them, but Wong said
that if the referendum was not
passed clubs might be forced to pay
"And the Pit, a lot of people are
complaining about 85 cents for a
beer," he said. "When they start
paying $1.10 there are going to be
more complaints."
The AMS executive says it wants
to give the undergraduate societies
constituency grants of at least
$10,000 next year, and the intramural program needs another
$3,000, said Wong.
"The only reason they haven't
been getting them (the grants) in the
last two years is the money just isn't

The student representative
assembly passed a thinning Almji

accepting significant cutbacks in
services and a perpetuation of
deficit financing for the third;
straight year.
AMS finance director Glenr
Wong's proposals included a deficit
of $8,916 to come from the:
society's shrinking reserve. He
predicted that over-runs would
increase the deficit substantially,
because deficits have totalled
$34,560 over the past two years.

People tired of gov't, Liberal says
Federal Liberal candidate Art

in his Vancouver-Centre riding if a

"I think the people are tired of

Bewley hooked on addicts
Heroin addicts must be forced
into the provincial government's
proposed heroin treatment
program, provincial court judge
Les Bewley said Tuesday.
Bewley told 200 people in the law
building that heroin addicts lose
their free will because they are
obsessed with the drug.
"Compulsory treatment is
humanistic, it is not punishment,"
he said.
Bewley said there have been
many objections to the proposed
legislation, because it seemingly
violates the civil rights of the addicts.
But the civil liberties of a heroin
addict are very few, he said.
"Don't tell  me  you're  taking
away an addict's civil rights when
you're offering him a chance to
help himself."
He said the large number of drug
related crimes violate citizens'
rights to the point where an addict's
civil rights pale in comparison.
A person can enter the program
voluntarily, or can be forced to do
so by a panel, he said.
A police officer who believes a
person is addicted to heroin can
issue the supposed addict a ticket
informing he or she to make an
appearance before a three person
panel, consisting of at least two
doctors, he said.
The ticket is like a summons and
must be answered within 24 to 48
hours from when it was issued, he
The panel would then decide
whether the person was addicted to
heroin and, if so, commit them to
the program, Bewley said. Commitment would not be regarded as
conviction of a criminal act, he
The program lasts three years
and is compulsory if entered involuntarily, he said. "There is no
parole or leave of absence."
The program will have various
levels of restraints placed on the
people enrolled in it, ranging from
a requirement to clinical report four
times a day, to staying in a
minimum security detention center
for six months, he said.
"The majority of people will be
out-patients," Bewley said.
'Research needs development'
The attitude of both UBC and the federal
government towards rescaich and development are
narrow-minded and backward, UBC chemistry
depattment head Charles McDowell said Wednesday
McDowell told 25 people in Chem 225 thai prime
minister Pierre trudeau has failed to appreciate the
relationship between research and a healthy ccononn.
"The whiz kids Mr. Trudeau has collected around
him don't seem to understand this," he said.
McDowell said the government was cutting back
on research grams while spending money on things
like "teaching 50-year old civil servants to speak
1   He said the government was getting too involved
in  rrving to  direct  research,  instead  of
scientists a completely free hand.
"Nobody knows better than the scientists what
needs to he done," McDowell said. "I'm not convinced thai government bureaucrats are sufficient^
intelligent to make those decisions."
McDowell said today's largely inadequate policies
are a result of the general attitude pervading the
country, because people tend to think of Canada as a
raw material exporter and leave technological
development io other countries.
Canadians say Canada is incapable of making its
own technological advances, he added.
"I hear this quite frequently from a very important man in ihis university," said McDowell. J
government in the spring of 1979.
"Our finances are out of control.
It is likely \ that a change in
leadership would result in the
Liberals if Trudeau does not get in
at the next election."
Phillips said \ Canada is experiencing rapid uiflation because
of an excess in t|ie amount of
money being circulated.
"Money has been printed too
fast. Whenever you find inflation,
you will always find too much
He said Canada should be
concerned with inflation and not
unemployment. The U.S. was too
concerned with unemployment and
let inflation get out of hand, he
Phillips said he used to be a critic
of the Bank of Canada's monetary
policies, but since the bank shifted
its priorities in 1975 he has stopped
sending them "nasty letters."
"They're gradually bringing
down the amount of money in
circulation. In the next few years I
think our inflation rate should be
lower than in the States."
Phillips said there is nothing
anyone can do about the unemployment problem for the next
couple of years.
"Over the next few years you will
see fewer people entering the work
force," he added.
He also said that it will not be
easy for students to find jobs in the
next few years.
'West exploits
black workers'
Western policy-makers are using
irrational arguments to justify
economic interests gained by exploiting the black majority in South
Africa a UBC professor said
"Western policy is to tacitly
support South Africa but their
actions, such as in the United
Nations, appear to be condemning
it (the white regime), "Mike Wallace
told about 30 people in SUB 207 in
a Southern Africa week speech.
"Companies such as International Telephone and
Telegraph and multi-national oil
companies are in South Africa
because they can make a profit and
because the price of black labor is
held artificially low by the existing
government," Wallace said.
Major companies gain a competitive advantage by exploiting
black labor, he added.
The U.S. appears to oppose the
oppression of blacks by saying they
do not want the black labor market
restricted, he said. But what they
are really saying is that blacks have
a right to be paid less in more areas
than they are now, Wallace said.
"They (Western nations) have no
desire at all to see the present
system changed because they have
very specific economic interests that
they wouldn't want to lose.
"There is always that sentimental
relationship that they (the South
African government) are white
Wallace said one major reason
given by western leaders for
maintaining a close relationship
with South Africa is to ensure the
prevention of "international
"We have become prisoners of a
word (terrorism) because of a
tendency to use it to cover any
situation where people rebel against
their government," Wallace said.
An attack on innocent people in a
democratic system would be seen as
terrorism, but when there is no
other means of political expression
the situation is very different, he
The West does not make the
necessary distinction between the
type of attack nor whether there is
an alternative means of political
expression, Wallace said.
"The actions of a majority
seeking to overthrow a minority
government has always been
considered legitimate in political
To say the actions of the black
majority in South Africa are
terrorist would be to say the fathers
of the American revolution were
terrorists, Wallace said.
"Ir you really want to see how
the word is misused, the white
regime says that terrorism is
critizing the police in a malicious
way when 99 per cent of terrorism
in the world is committed by people
in uniform."
Wallace said the other arguments
most commonly used by western
countries for their support of the
white regime are to maintain the
supply of raw minerals from South
Africa, and ,to keep the oil trade
route around Cape Horn free from
Soviet interference.
"The United States says that if
South Africa were to cease beinj;
the present regime, it might result in
a  regime allied  with  the   Sovie:
WALLACE ... West hypocritical
Union and if this happened the>
would both have control of the oil
trade around Cape Horn."
This argument is ridiculous
because the Soviet Union would nol
even conceive of interfering with
the oil trade route, he said.

People's Republic of China visited

particularly in the use of audiovisual aids," said Brian Long,

members are finding Canada's
education system very different
from their own.
"They are hereto learn something
about our very confusing education
systems. The concepts of separat;
administrations in universities,
colleges, and school boards is
strange to people who are used to

Last rights
The right to strike is a fundamental democratic freedom. No
employer should have the right to force people to work for
wages or under conditions they find unacceptable.
The recent decision by the federal government to legislate
postal workers back to the sorting lines seems to be attracting
wide-spread support from the commercial media and the
general public. No one can argue that the post office is in a
mess, but the authoritarian measures being implemented by the
Trudeau government are unacceptable.
The current post office shambles is not the fault of the union
alone. Indeed the federal government, and prime minister Pierre
Trudeau in particular, must be held accountable for the bulk of
the post office's troubles.
For too long the Liberals have allowed the situation to
deteriorate. This is not fhe first postal strike and is not likely to
be the last because of the government's refusal or inability to
correct the basic underlying problems affecting the service.
The post office's problems start at the top. The position of
postmaster general is, unfortunately, a cabinet post. Because it
is the most junior portfolio, the people given the position are
either rookie politicians on their way up, but with little experience, or political hacks who have won their way into the
government's inner circle through methods unrelated to competence.
This deficiency at the top is further accentuated by the rapid
turnover of ministers. Just when a minister is beginning to get a
handle on how the system works he is shuffled off to another
cabinet post or the senate. The result is chaos.
The post office is a business and should be run as such. Not
as a political ministry.
The post office will run more smoothly when and if the
government lives up to its promise to change the ministry to a
crown corporation "with a full-time experienced administrator
instead of a political, and often incompetent, appointee.
It is ironic that the postal workers are being made to suffer for
the management mistakes of the government. The organization
responsible for the current strike is not the Canadian Union of
Postal Workers but the Liberal cabinet, which has allowed the
festering sores in the postal service to infect the entire body
Although the Liberals have acted irresponsibly, not only in the
current crisis, but in the overall management of the postal service, the union has also demonstrated a lack of responsibility in
subjecting the country to a communications breakdown.
In a long, protracted strike many small businesses will go
under and low-income people dependent on receiving welfare,
pension or unemployment insurance cheques will suffer serious
The freedom to strike carries with it an obligation to use it only
in the most dire circumstances when all possible means of settlement have been exhausted. This is particularly true in an
essential service such as the post office.
No doubt the union shares part of the blame for the current
dilemma but an excellent case can be made that it is being backed into a corner by the bungling, incompetent Trudeaucrats.
One of the more disgraceful aspects to the whole issue has
been the support by some members of the press of the Liberal
government's back-to-work legislation. The right to strike is as
important as the freedom of the press and the failure of some
journalists to recognize this is deplorable.
Abrogating a basic freedom as the right to strike; a freedom
on a par with the right to free speech and assembly; in an effort
to cover up one's own mistakes is autocratic in the extreme.
The Liberal government is displaying a disregard for the
democratic process unacceptable in a country with a long
history of liberal democracy. Throw the rascals out.

Prisoners still held
It has been very encouraging to
see the coverage you have given so
far in The Ubyssey to human rights
issues. Since this, I am sure, reflects
the growing understanding among
the student community of the
importance of human rights in the
contemporary world, I hope you
will allow me to bring to the attention of your readers that this
week is Prisoner of Conscience
Week 1978 throughout the world.
During the week the plight of
hundreds of thousands of prisoners
of conscience is brought to our
As most people know, the basic
rights of human beings are violated
in well over 90 countries. One of the
major violations is the imprisonment of people, who have
not committed or advocated
violence, for their political or
religious beliefs or their racial or
ethnic origins. These people are the
prisoners of conscience. Amnesty
UBC and the Alma Mater Society
programs committee are sponsoring
a talk on the subject of "What is a
Prisoner of Conscience?" during
which concrete cases, human
tragedies and the successful actions
of Amnesty International will be
discussed, on Thursday Oct. 19 at
noon in Buchanan 106. The speaker
is Judith Brocklehurst, a very active
member of Amnesty International,
Canada and the founder of the
Bracebridge, Ontario Amnesty
group. Brocklehurst has appeared
on television a number of times on
shows like Man Alive and Fifth
Estate and she has also written
numerous articles on human rights.
Her talk will be well worth hearing.
Throughout the week there will
be an information booth and poster
display in SUB. At the booth there
win, be three form letters on behalf
of Prisoners of Conscience from
Yemen, Rhodesia and Syria.
Anyone interested in helping in the
release of a fellow human being is
asked to come to SUB and sign one
of these letters. And even if you are
not interested in signing a letter
come to the booth, talk to us and
read our posters.
Get involved in Prisoner of
Conscience Week. Thousands of
people need your interest and help.
We urge you to come by the booth
and to come hear Judith
Brocklehurst's talk. You will
definitely not waste time by doing
either of these things.

Gee, shucks, Al
The most readable Ubyssey I've
seen since coming back in '75. (And
please don't take that as a shot;
there have been more than a few
good 'regular' papers).
If you get a complaint, it will
come from F'ringham, listed as a
'Dirty Thirties' staffer by Eric
Nicol. Since F'ringham at that time
was still a knee-britched tadpole
catcher at Chilliwach (cc) on the
Luckakuck (cc) (if, in fact, he had
even migrated from Gravelbourg,
Sask., by then), it is obvious why
'Jabez' stuck with writing rather
than reporting.
On the other hand, why should
F'ringham     complain?      He'll
probably get a column out of it.
Now, if the Ubyssey could only
sign Malcolm McGregor as a
weekly contributor...

Rights for the right, too
In his letter of Oct 6, R.G.
Carriere exhibits considerable
stupidity by imagining that my
letter criticizing Ubyssey's policy of
publishing ads for reactionary
institutions was based upon a
concern for the 'rights' of left-wing
It is obvious that Carriere did not
even read the letter for nowhere in
it do I mention the concept of
rights. Immutable natural rights is a
liberal concept not a socialist one.
One cannot help but laugh at
Brent Collingson's naivete in
stating that more communication is
needed with the RCMP so that they
won't become more isolated from
the rest of society (The Ubyssey,
Oct. 5). Any substantial improvement in the organization of
society will not come about by
conversing with the police as they
will certainly continue to expand
their repressive role. The struggle
with the armed representatives of
the right is one that will involve
more than the suppression of their
so-called right to express themselves.
While   freedom   of   speech   is
desirable, leftists realize how in
significant this freedom is when
control of the mass media is exclusively in the hands of a conservative elite. The pervasive use of
this media has so effectively
manipulated and indoctrinated
people that they have become
incapable of making their own
rational decisions. This being so,
there comes a point, as Marcuse
notes, when opinion or information
that serves to oppose the
progression of mankind must be
suppressed, while at the same time
the indoctrination of the status-quo
is broken down. John Walker Thursday, October 19, 1978

Soyezla s.v.p.
On Oct. 16, 1970, using the
excuse that "national security" was
threatened (by a handful of FLQ
terrorists), prime minister Pierre
Trudeau proclaimed the War
Measures Act. Democratic rights
were suspended. The Canadian
army occupied Quebec. Three
thousand raids were carried out;
almost five hundred people were
arrested, some of them detained for
months without ever being charged.
One of those arrested was
Jacques Beaudoin, past president
of the Montreal transit union.
Previously Beaudoin had run
against mayor Jean Drapeau in the
Montreal municipal elections. He
was a member of the Front
d'Action Politique, many of whose
members, mainly trade unionists,
were arrested. (Some of the candidates for FRAP received up to 28
per cent of the vote).
How trade union leaders and
politicians threaten "national
security" is Trudeau's secret. But
anyone can see that the War
Measures Act is only one of the
ways of intimidating those who are
for independence and social change
in Quebec. On Jan. 1 of this year,
Trudeau unambiguously threatened
to "use the sword" and "take the
kind of action we took in 1970..."
if Quebec opts for independence.
What kind of society is this, where
a whole nation of people are
threatened with repression if they
attempt to counteract the results of
two centuries of inequality?
The War Measures Act is not all,
however. The number of repressive
laws has been increasing. Just look
at the Official Secrets Act, Bill C-
26, which legalizes mail opening by
the RCMP, or Law C-24, the
repressive Immigration Act! Should
we bother mentioning all the illegal
and, indeed, terrorist activities of
the RCMP that have since come to
On Friday, Oct. 20 at 12:30 p.m.
in the SUB Auditorium, Jacques
Beaudoin of the Montreal Transit
Union will be speaking on the
repression in Montreal during the
time of the War Measures Act. Phil
Resnick, professor in the political
science department at UBC, will
also be speaking. His topic will be
the War Measures Act and the
future of Quebec. Plan to be there!

Harnett's beef illogical
Jeff Barnett's letter in The
Ubyssey supporting Brian Short's
constitutional proposal contained
serious mistakes in fact and logic.
In the first place, it is no mere
fear that the "Short proposal" will
result in an executive clique: the
present system was largely a
response to repeated examples of
executive cliques strong-arming
student councils. Those which
didn't strong-arm tended to self-
destruct from internal squabbling.
In the second place, although
Jeff sees SRA as dominated by law
students, he doesn't seem to realize
that law is itself one of the smaller
faculties. The only reason law has
any particular influence this year is
that its reps have made a special
effort to get involved. This is
precisely the strength of the present
system: influence comes from
getting involved and doing work,
not from lucking out in an election.
Thirdly, although Jeff seems to
find attending two SRA meetings
per month onerous, reps would find
their responsibilities under the
Short proposal far more
By forcing undergraduate
societies to send their presidents as
reps, the Short proposal will shortchange both the undergraduate
societies and the AMS. Most
constituencies now send specially
elected reps to the SRA, and that
practice ensures a more bearable
distribution of time and commitment.
Finally, Jeffs main criticism
seems to be that there is too much
debate at SRA meetings. My two
fold response is that debate is a sign
of a healthy assembly, and that if
Jeff feels he has a more mature
point of view, we'd love to hear
from him some time.

A plea for assistance!
I've recently returned from the
National Union of Students and the
Association of Student Councils
conferences in London, Ontario
and once again I'm faced with the
dilemma of having twenty times as
many good ideas, worthwhile
causes and essential campaigns to
think about, organize, talk to
people about, etc. than I and my
loyal band of external affairs
committee members can deal with.
The problems of student aid
(dollars and the lack thereof),
foreign students (discriminatory
policies), unemployment (jobs and
the lack thereof), tuition fee increases (last year and again next
year), cutbacks (last year, this year,
next year, forever ...?) and on and
on and on are real. They effect
both you and I, and both you and I
have an affect on how they're
handled. There is very good reason
to believe that the tuition fee increase we were hit with last year was
a mere 25 per cent, rather than the
40 per cent it had been planned to
be because of student protests. The
loan ceiling on Canada Student
Loans was to be raised, by an act of
parliament, sometime this spring —
NUS spoke out on behalf of
students across the country and the
bill was tabled. These are but two
examples — fairly significant
examples, mind you — to prove
that students do have a voice, if
they choose to use it.
In the web of bureaucracy that i:
student representation, the buck,
on these matters, starts at the
external affairs committee. If
you're in the least bit concerned,
curious, upset or annoyed, I urge
you to get in touch with me about
the date and time of the next
committee meeting.
Please think about the loan you
didn't get, the visa that means you
can't really live, the education that
isn't what it should be, for just a
minute — and then get in touch
with me. My office number is 228-
6101 and that's in SUB 262. Come
and talk to me ... involve yourself
...it's your education, your future.

Grid rivalry
Defence boosts gridders   s™ UPin aip
The strong defensive corps of the
UBC football 'Birds forced Calgary
errors and gave opportunity to the
offence in a 34-10 win at Thunderbird Stadium Saturday.
The 'Birds were tested early in
the Western Intercollegiate
Football League game before 800
fans, when the University of
Calgary's Harry Kruger returned
the opening kickoff for a 98-yard
touchdown. But the 'Birds bounced
back, with tailback John Mackay
rambling 61 yards for the major
before a minute was gone.
The 'Birds led 18-10 at the half,
but to boost their playoff chances
they needed a 16-point win, because
UBC lost 29-14 to the Dinos Sept.
Both teams are now 4-2 and
contending for the second and final
playoff spot. So UBC turned the
screws in the second half, not only
stopping any scoring and first
downs, but also keeping the Dinos
from getting more than one
complete pass (for three yards).
"They beat us physically very
badly in the second half," said
Calgary coach Mike Lashuk, noting
that Calgary was stopped three
times inside UBC's 15-yard line,
but only came away with three
points. Twice Calgary gave up the
ball on downs, going for seven
rather than taking three.
UBC head coach Frank Smith
said he thought Calgary's third-
down gambles were both mistakes,
but Lashuk said, "You can always
question," his voice trailing off.
Other Calgary problems included
four interceptions. Al Chorney had
two, and Bernie Crump and Jack
Hirose each took one. Causing the
Reptiles so much confusion were
vetern tackle Mark Wald, who
helped shut down the ground game,
and end Brent Racette, a converted
rugby player who joined the
gridders this season. At 6'1" and
215 pounds, third-year player Kevin
Konar was a defensive anchor in his
middle-linebacker spot.
UBC moved ahead to stay at 7:15
of the. first quarter, quarterback
Dan Smith connecting with a wide-
open Chris Davies for a 50-yard
major. Another promising drive
was halted by Kruger, who intercepted an errant Smith pass to
the end zone.
In the second quarter, Gary Metz
kicked a 37-yard field goal after
Davies lost the handle on a sure
touchdown pass. Chorney's interception set up another Metz
attempt, but this was wide and the
'Birds took a single.
In the second half, UBC marched
The UBC Thunderbirds ice
hockey team was in Port Alberni
last weekend to tangle with the Port
Alberni intermediate team. The
'Birds returned from the trip having
swept both ends of the weekend
series, 8-3 and 11-3.
Derek Williams scored five goals
for the 'Birds and Frank Gorringe
added four.
The puck 'Birds go to the
Kootenay's this weekend to play a
Cranbrook team on Friday and
then move on to Kimberley to meet
the local Dynamiters on Saturday.
*     *     *
The soccer 'Birds lost 1-0 to the
University of Victoria at UBC
downfield and established offensive
superiority in the first possession.
The drive bore fruit on a quick
look-in pass from Smith, which
Davies caught and carried for the
28-yard touchdown. He led all
receivers with six catches for 99
At the end of the third quarter,
Mackay swept wide on a 10-yard
touchdown run that appeared to
put the game, at 32-10, out of
reach. But coach Smith left in the
first-string players, to make sure
that the Dinos couldn't pull within
15 points. This would have given
them a better overall record against
UBC this year, a factor which will
likely count in the final standings.
UBC added two insurance points
in the fourth, one on a missed Metz
field goal attempt and another off
the foot of punter Al Chorney.
Mackay carried the ball 19 times
for 152 yards of UBC's 433-yard
offensive total.
But UBC's special team coverage
was loose. Kruger and Jim Jenkyns
combined for  175 yards in kick
returns, 18 yards more than
Calgary's total offence. Coach
Smith winced at the memory of
Kruger's opening-kickoff touchdown. "That opening kickoff
really pisses me off," he said.
"Everyone goes down and it's
Cloud City."

"We put 34 points on the board
against a good team."
Well, Calgary was good. The
Saturday win moved UBC from
eighth place to fourth in the
Canadian Intercollegiate Athletic
Association's weekly national
rankings, while Calgary dropped
from second to fifth. In sixth spot is
Alberta. The University of Western
Ontario is first.
The playoff situation is this: One
win in the last two games ensures
second place, and two wins (including a win by 18 points over
league-leading Edmonton if
Calgary doesn't beat them) puts the
'Birds in first.
UBC travels to Winnepeg to take
on the University of Manitoba
Bisons Saturday, then hosts Alberta
at home on Oct. 28.
BIRD SEED: UBC running back
Rich Negrin was lost for the rest of
the season after suffering a broken
collar bone on the first play of the
second half. Brother Dave will
continue at running back in his
place. Other wounded include Greg
Gardner, Bernie Crump and Gord
Penn. Saskatchewan beat Manitoba
26-13 in the other weekend game.
The proposed resumption of the
UBC — SFU football rivalry may
die an impromptu death, strangled
by mounds of red tape and infighting between the two universities' athletic departments.
A game planned for Nov. 25 in
Empire Stadium was cancelled by
SFU athletic director Lome Davies
over a squabble about whether the
game would be played under
American or Canadian rules. The
UBC men's athletic committee
insists that Canadian rules be used,
but SFU wants to either play under
American rules this year or in a
future rematch.
Men's athletic director "Bus"
Phillips said Wednesday "I am
surprised that members of the
community or the student body
haven't been up here banging on
my desk demanding the game be;
The dispute dates back to a series
of letters and meetings this summer
between the two universities. Both
sides agreed that the rivalry should
be resumed but no consensus could
be reached on the game's rules.
SFU suggested that rules be
alternated every year or that this
year's loser could choose next
year's rules. But UBC insisted that,
since both teams were Canadian,
the game should be played under
Canadian rules.
"None of the schools on the
prairies will play them under any
but Canadian rules," said Phillips.
"So why should we commit ourselves to any other arrangement?"
SFU would not move from what
Davies termed "our final
proposal." In a letter addressed to
Phillips, Davies wrote, "We will
not plan to compete against you on
November 25th."
UBC   administration   president
Doug Kenny jumped into the fray,
issuing a press release saying, "I am
sure they must agree that letting an
if, and/or maybe dispute over the
game keep us from playing this year
is just plain silly."
Phillips echoed this position,
saying, "We are ready to play on
Nov. 25. Let's try to get this game
played and let next year take care of
There seems to be no change in
SFU's position, either. Acting
athletic director Barb Robertson
said Wednesday, "I'm not aware of
any change in our position. But I'm
not sure what is going on. No one
is. We're not setting conditions on
the game. It's UBC that won't play
under any but  Canadian rules."
But Robertson later agreed that
alternating rules in some form was
the only condition under which
SFU would play.
The rivalry itself dates back to
the late 60's and early 70's. The two
teams played five games between
1967 and 1971. SFU won four and
the other, the infamous Mud Bowl
of 1969, ended in a tie.
The main reason the games were
stopped was UBC was just not
competitive with SFU. In the five
games, UBC was outscored 168-32
and public interest all but died too.
But it appears that now the teams
may be much more evenly matched.
The only team both UBC and SFU
face each season is the University
of Puget Sound Loggers of
Tacoma. This year the Loggers
defeated SFU 36-0. But UBC
thrashed Puget Sound 28-7 on Oct.
7. The difference between the two
games was that many key Loggers
missed the UBC game due to injuries, but were back in the lineup
to face the Clansmen. Also, Puget
Sound enjoyed home field advantage against SFU, but played at
Thunderbird Stadium against UBC.
Hoop Birds look weakp^^^^
as veterans drift away
The 1978-79 version of the
Thunderbird basketball team will
be a team of surprises, but the
biggest one was for coach Peter
Mullins when 6'8" centre Adam
Yawrenko left the university last
Yawrenko was an integral part of
the 'Bird offense and will be greatly
missed. This would have been only
his second year on the varsity
squad, his first having been marred
with injuries. Despite physical
problems Yawrenko consistently
managed to hit double figures for
an inconsistent 'Bird offense.
This loss was added to the earlier
loss of Yawrenko's fellow centre,
6'7" Mark Adilman, who did not
return to UBC this year. Adilman,
a leading rebounder on last year's
squad, has decided to move to
Israel for the year.
To the list on non-returnees the
name of veteran guard Doug
Mosher must be added. Mosher was
one of the Thunderbird's best
outside shooters and an aggressive
defensive player. A personal
conflict with coach Mullins is
reported to be the reason for
Mosher's decision to sit out.
Now for the bad news. This
year's squad is lacking on both

No, the women did not sell
114,000 boxes of chocolate-covered
almonds to pay for the trip. The tab
is being picked up by Isetan, a
department store chain sponsoring
the tournament.
The team is relatively new, this
being their second season. They
play in a 12-team women's league
and finished sixth last year after an
18-game schedule.
The rules are only slightly
modified from men's hockey.
There is no bodychecking and
helmets have faceguards. The
strength of the Thunderettes appears to be their skating legs. Many
of the women come from a figure-
skating background, as do many
professional players. Obviously
their hockey skills won't be as
polished as their male counterparts,
but many have not had the chance
to play in organized sport for many

action at UBC Saturday.
After breaking to an early 6-0
lead on a Dave Whyte try, converted by Preston Wiley, the 'Birds
began to show the effects of the
tough schedule. Although the
'Birds manhandled the Caps in the
scrum, their open-field play
repeatedly broke down and they
generated little offence.
A Capilano penalty goal just
before the half closed the score to 6-
Capilano tied the score with a
penalty kick early in the second half
and the visitors pushed down to
UBC's two-metre line being halted
by a penalty. This threat,
Capilano's best offensive display of
the day, shocked UBC out of its
fatigue-induced fog and the 'Birds
took control.
Right after the 20-minute mark, a
series of passes moved the ball out
wide to Andrew Bibby, who
rambled 50 yards for a try. Wiley
converted, later added a penalty
kick, and Don Carson bulled over
for the final score.
Last Wednesday night UBC
beat  Ex-Britannia 26-0.
