 Dissent greets budget
By JAKE van der KAMP
Disappointment and
frustration with the proposed
Alma Mater Society budget
were in clear evidence at AMS
council Wednesday night.
And the split between
councillors representing small
faculties and those representing
large faculties widened.
The $685,000 budget — of
which $152,000 is discretionary
expenses — has already been
passed in council in principle
and amended and changed at
budget committee.
But if still needs council's
official approval.
However, councillors could
not give final OK Wednesday
because they agreed to cut the
meeting off at 9:30 p.m. and
because of disagreement between councillors on the formula
for distributing money to the 21
undergraduate societies.
The budget, presented by
AMS treasurer John Wilson,
proposed that the AMS grant
undergrad societies a flat $250,
35 cents a student for the first
1,000 students and 15 cents a
student after the 1,000 level is
The budget is divided into
non-discretionary and
discretionary expenditures.
Non-discretionary expenditures include SUB, for
which students pay about $15 of
their AMS fee, the $5 athletic fee
and the $5 covered pool fee.
Discretionary items include
grants to undergraduate
societies, The Ubyssey budget,
intramurals and administrative
Representatives of the
science undergraduate society
and the arts undergraduate
society argued Wednesday the
correct proposal a $10,000 total
grant will benefit small
faculties like architecture and
nursing to the detriment of the
larger faculties.
Undergraduate societies were
given a basic $200 and 30 cents a
student last year.
"We would only get $982
under the present formula
whereas we would have got
$1,265 under last year's formula," said SUS president
Brian Kolthammer.
Kolthammer said the present
SUS executive had just recently
come into office and the former
executives had done little, a
practice which this year's
council wants to change.
He said the SUS had already
allocated $950 of their budget
and the remainder would be
insufficient for the executive to
set up a permanent basis on
which the society could later
Kolthammer said the SUS
executive was willing to look for
other sources of revenue.
However, he sponsored an
amendment to change the basis
of allocation back to last year's
Wilson defended his proposal
saying that some expenses are
not proportional to the number
of students.
"To sponsor a speaker when
there are 4,000 people attending
costs about the same as it does
if 2,000 people are attending,"
he said.
'Only if there are many less
than that will there be any
fluctuation in the cost.
"In any case the allocation to
the SUS would go down, since
the enrolment figures on which
the allocations are set are last
year's and science enrolment
went down last year."
AMS vice-president  Gordon
Blankstein also said he opposes
the SUS counter-proposal.
"The SUS doesn't need any
extra money to set up a permanent basis for the society.
"They can do that as well with
$950 as with $1,250," he said.
Architecture rep Ed Le Flufy
"Our budget is simply insufficient," he said. "Students

Music students
won't rock boat
Music students appear more concerned with an
untarnished degree than making waves in their
department, a Ubyssey survey showed Wednesday.
Several students interviewed said they prefered
the conflicts between music students and their head
Donald McCorkle be eased through committees and
grievance boards rather than outright opposition in
an effort to prevent people outside UBC thinking the
department is "scandal-ridden".
In the past month, professors and students within
the department have criticized McCorkle for being.
unapproachable and aloof. The music undergraduate society has formed a grievance
committee to investigate these charges and to act
as a liaison between the music faculty and students.
MUS president Murray Walker said Wednesday
there are definitely problems of communication
with McCorkle and his availability to faculty and
students. The first aim of the committee will be to
act as a liaison between students and faculty, he
Walker denied any hint of a scandal within the
department. "A scandal has the connotation of
something illegal or immoral about it. There just
isn't that sort of thing in the music department," he
However, in the past three weeks four music profs
have spoken out against McCorkle for his methods
and controls over the department. Many students
have also expressed similar opinions.
Walker has been voted the official spokesman of
the MUS in an effort to correct misleading
statements which the MUS has said came from
dissident students with personal gripes.
Some people feel the controversy began last
spring when students started a petition complaining
about McCorkle's refusal to admit a qualified
student to graduate school.
Among the complaints about McCorkle were his
preoccupation with smaller issues in the department such as approving recital programs and only
signing requisitions on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Another issue in recent disputes has been the
status of part-time workers, some of whom complained they weren't being paid. However, since the
complaint was published in The Ubyssey on Oct. 12
some of the workers were suddenly paid by arts
dean Doug Kenny's private secretary.

"We can't afford to lose even
"Maybe because we are a
professional school, we should
pay more but we don't make
more money in the summer
than anyone else."
Kolthammer said he was
dissatisfied with this explanation.
"You small faculties need
more money but we can't do
with less. You're screwing us,"
he said.
Law representative Gordon
Turriff said the solution for all
faculties upset with their
allotments is to levy undergraduate fees on their
"These are just chicken-feed
grants," Turriff said. "A few
dollars either way doesn't make
much difference."
Council also approved the
wording of a referendum on
what students would like to see
happen to University Endowment Lands. The
referendum will beheld Nov. 21.
The referendum asks
students whether they would
like to see the UEL development into student and cost
control housing, single family
dwellings, park (e.g. Stanley
Park), recreation or left in its
natural undeveloped state.
The ballot is preferential or
may be marked by a single X.
Brock said he has asked
provincial housing minister,
Lome Nicholson, to come to
UBC Nov. 9 to speak on the
endowment lands.
In other business Wilson gave
a preliminary report on the
$25,000 bookkeeping machine he
would like purchased for the
AMS business office and
promised a fuller accounting
next week.
Wilson was responding to a
motion passed at the previous
council meeting asking him to
explore alternate means of
handling the business office
books such as using the administration computer.
Wilson said the business for
which the computer is needed
cannot be done on UBC's
computer since the volume is
not large enough to justify
setting up a program for the
large computer and since the
amounts of paper work required
would be far greater than if the
society had its own machine.
Wilson said if an outside data
service was used reports would
only be available once a month.
He said he had already made
a purchase order for the
machine subject to council's
approval because the price of
the machine would go up soon
and he wanted to take advantage of the lower price
before it was too late.
If the go-ahead for the purchase is granted after Wilson's
detailed accounting of the
reasons the machine is needed
is presented, it would be paid
for by 5-year lease at $5,000 a

Engineer president says
'Bring back chariot race for charity'
A more gross half-time show will
have to be found for the annual tea-
, cup football game because this
year's event attracted only 500
spectators, engineering undergraduate president Craig
Williams said Wednesday.
This year's campus-wide fund-
raising drive to help crippled
children, of which the tea-cup
game between home economics
and nursing is a part, raised about
$1,650, a substantial drop from the
previous years, Williams said.
Overall revenue was up from last
year but Williams said this was
from a heavier classroom "blitz"
for donations which more than
absorbed the loss of the games.
(Admission is by donation.)
In past years, the game featured
a sometime bloody half-time
chariot race between various
undergraduate societies.
Williams said the chariot race
may have to be revived.
One man almost lost an arm a
few years ago. Science men have
been known to throw acid, which
when mixed with cow dung from
agriculture could be a potent
combination, at competitors.
Chariots, pushed around the track
at the stadium, were getting bigger
and more elaborately aggressive.
This year's event had a pushball
game between the undergraduate
societies featuring a six foot
rubber ball.
"You have to find something
more interesting than that to get
people way out to Thunderbird
stadium," Williams said.
A football game between nurses
and home economics is just too dull
as well, he said.
{('Something really gross will
have to be dragged up to attract
attention or there will be even
fewer people here next year."
Opposition  had  been   creating
over the past few years to the
chariot race and this year's EUS
executive discontinued it in the
hope of increasing support for the
On several occasions in the past
some members of the chariot
teams have been injured while
attacked by members of other
teams or dragged along under a
stampeding chariot.
But Williams said interest has
waned even more.
"Either the chariot race will
have to be revived or some well
publized alternate will have to be
found," he said.
Press board eyed
Uof T drives for grad union
TORONTO (CUP) — A month-
long drive to recruit the last 200
graduate assistants needed to
certify the' University of Toronto
Graduate Assistant Association is
GAA chairman, Michael O'Keefe
said the push is also aimed at those
undergraduates who do the same
work as their graduate counterparts.
To be certified as the collective
bargaining agent for the approximately 2,000 U of T
assistants, 35 per cent or about 700
have to be signed up. So far about a
quarter have signed with the GAA
since September.
Once certification is granted a
vote of over 50 per cent of the
bargaining units is required before
bargaining with the university can
take place. Even with the
organizing drive still going on, the
GAA has already started putting
up a fight for graduate assistants.
Lawyer Martin Levenson has
taken the GAA's claim for back
vacation pay, required under the
Ontario Employment Standard
Act, to the provincial government
for a ruling and O'Keefe said he is
optimistic of a decision favorable
to students.
The act stipulates an employee
must receive vacation pay at a rate
of two per cent of his wages per
year. O'Keefe says the university
has not done this for years.
O'Keefe says the GAA is now
getting recruiters in each
department to sign up graduate
assistants, including teaching
assistants, markers, tutors,
research assistants, demonstrators and instructors.
The University of Windsor GAA,
the only certified association of its
kind in Canada, has won a uniform
wage of $2,400 per year, maximum
allowable by law, a grievance
procedure and a voice in departmental hiring committees.
U of T assistants have an
average wage of less than $1,000
per year and they do more than 40
per cent of . undergraduate

O'Keefe reports some of the
GAA's best response from

lowest. Average incomes in other

a rampage Monday when it
became apparent their party had
won the election, but the news
media refused to report it.
They snerged through the
streets, refusing to sit down when
the national anthem was played, as
is customary.
"We got the votes, we got the
votes," they fumed.
"We want our candidate for
president to be king."
But Brawn Collesteral, who
thought he had cleverly concealed
the truth from the sluming masses,
stubbornly rewrote an editorial for
the twentieth different paper.
"The fact that the snerds lost
does not negate the fact that they
won," he wrote. "The fact that the
others got more has no bearing on
the untruth."
departments such as physical and
life sciences are as low as $800,
compared to $1,800 for humanities
and $1,250 for social sciences.
In some departments, assistants
are expected to take on teaching
and marking work at no pay, and
many undergraduates only receive
half the wages as their graduate
equivalents for the same work.
One of the GAA's claims is to
provide standard wages based on
an accurate estimate of the time
required to fulfill teaching and
other duties rather than the
current system of "contact hours"
which does not take into account
preparation time.
University of Winnipeg student
council may delegate its control of
student publications to an independent board.
Council president Don Lidstone,
a former editor of the student
newspaper said the creation of an
independent board would remove
the threat of student councillors
exercising control of the student
press for political reasons. Lid-
stone said the board should consist
of three elected students, two
members of student council and
the former student newspaper
The board would be less inclined
than the student council to limit the
freedom of the press, Lidstone
said. The only power the council
would retain under the proposed
scheme is partial financial control.
The council would have to approve or deny the budget submitted by the publishing board, but
Lidstone said, this power would be
limited so that the council could not
force the newspaper to stop

Straight takes AMS to student court
The B.C. Civil Liberties Association is
taking the Alma Mater Society to student
court to challenge AMS control of newspaper
distribution on campus.
BCCLA president Reg Robson said Wednesday, "We regard the AMS action as an
imposition on freedom of the press."
Robson stressed his association was not
acting on behalf of the Georgia Straight or
Straight editor Dan McLeod. He said the
Straight conflict with the AMS was merely
serving as basis for a case of principle.
McLeod told The Ubyssey the case was
being  taken  to  student  court  because he
believed it should be settled on a student
McLeod also admitted taking the case to
student court was the only action left to him
because he didn't have the funds to wage a
proper court case. So, he said the matter was
in the BCCLA's hands.
McLeod added he was impatient because he
felt the BCCLA was taking so long to handle
the case.
The five members of the Student Court, four
justices and a chief justice, are appointed
annually by a joint-committee of the incoming and outgoing students' council.
The verdict of the Students' Court must be
ratified by council before it is enforcable. The
case may be appealed to the faculty council

provincial government is now considering

He said the government could turn the
lands over to Vancouver city for administration, but indicated the province,
would specify land use before doing this. He
said he personally favors use of the land for
low-cost housing.
Phillips told the class he hasn't been officially notified of any provincial government decision on the land.
"But I think he (Barrett) has got a very
good point. This is a good area for housing,"
he said.
"But I think some land — maybe 500
acres, maybe 700, should be kept for park
use. At any rate I think we want to take a
really intelligent look at the situation before
any decision is reached."
He said he would like to see the natural
bog areas retained for park use along with
shore areas — "the parts with bicycles and

Courting life
The Georgia Straight has decided to take its dispute
with the Alma Mater Society to the i student court.
Originally the Straight and its friends at B.C. Civil
Liberties Association planned to appeal the AMS decision to
stop the paper from distributing free on campus to the B.C.
Supreme Court.
But Straight owner Dan McLeod says there just isn't
the money to take such an action. So instead he is taking
the case to the students.
We'd like to wish him luck.
To begin with the whole Straight hassle is nebulous
enough with McLeod's side arguing freedom of the press
and the other side - the AMS, as well as other Lower
Mainland student societies - arguing the action was merely
an assertion of authority over on-campus advertising.
There are legal precedents for the AMS action so
McLeod would be taxed to prove his case in any court but it
will be even more difficult before the student judiciary.
This is because student court has no existence beyond
the AMS constitution and as such can only rule whether or
not the AMS council action violates that document.
And that document does grant the society the sort of
power   it   exercised.
Thus, victory for council isn't clear cut but when you
add the consideration that some AMS hacks sit on court,
McLeod's hopes of winning would seem shaky.
See you in court, Dan.

I would like to take this opportunity to make some comments
on the NUS endorsement of the ban
on the free distribution of the
Georgia Straight at UBC.
The AMS voted Oct. 3 to ban free
distribution of the Georgia
Straight. Then, the National Union
of Students conference endorsed
the AMS action with "strong
In the course of the resulting
discussion; some very important
questions have yet to be answered.
Who gets* to choose what is
distributed on this campus? It
would seem that from these actions
it certainly is not the students, as
we had no say in the matter
whatsoever. In whose real interests is it to ban the free
distribution of the Georgia Straight
— the administration's or ours?
And moreover, what purpose did it
serve to institute this ban?
Unfortunately, factors like these
were not taken into consideration
in the hasty moves of the AMS and
NUS. If they had been, it would
have become apparent that the ban
does not serve in favor of students'
interests, but instead acts against,
them. In fact, such an action is
something usually associated with
the administration, rather than a
students' council.
In our opinion, the move by the
AMS to ban the free distribution of
the Straight was undemocratic
because students had no part in
making this decision which limited
the free and open discussion of all
viewpoints on the campus.
The central argument in favor of
the ban has been that free
distribution of the Straight on UBC
could take away advertising from
The Ubyssey. The words of AMS
publications manager John Dufort
shows how much of a red-herring
this allegation is when he commented that the "crux of the
situation is not ads or even loss of
revenue..." Precisely. The central
issue is not whether or not a drop
might occur in Ubyssey advertising, but the fact that the AMS
has no right to deny the free;
distribution of the Straight.
If AMS clubs were to publish
brochures outlining their activities, and to finance publication
advertising was obtained, would
the AMS move to ban their free
distribution also?
Some very important principles
about student democracy are involved in this discussion. Foremost
is the need to have all viewpoints
heard and discussed on the campus
without restriction. In the letter
dated July 11, 1973, from AMS
president Brian Loomes to the
University of Alberta student
council protesting the eviction of
the Young Socialists from the
student union building he stated
that "student unions and councils
should be the most democratic
organizations in society... Only in
such an atmosphere, an atmosphere of complete democracy,
can we hope to learn and work...
The student movement can only
grow and have the most impact
possible when full democratic
rights are alloted to all student
groups. Our strength is in our unity
and our unity depends on complete
openness of discussion and activity." This is perfectly correct,
but Loomes seems to be playing a
different tune now.
Even though we may disagree
with the Straight as a newspaper, it
is nevertheless essential that it be
allowed to present its views in the
most free and open atmosphere
and that students should decide if
there is to be any restriction on its
In our opinion, the move to ban
the free distribution of the Straight
was an error which must be
corrected. For the AMS to
preserve student democracy on
UBC it must recognize this error
and retract the ban.

It is with a heavy heart that I am
prompted to write this letter. The
month of October has seen the end
of an era on this campus, an era
where many students were entertained and amused.
The era I am referring to is the
apparent lack of spirit shown by
the engineers and the engineering
undergraduate society. Their
president is reported at council
without any red and now The
Ubyssey replaces the engineers as
the group staging well thought out
and enjoyable pranks.
Granted the Ubyssey staff could
not hide the nine o'clock gun for a
weekend, nor could it turn the
Birks' clock into the world's
largest Mickey Mouse clock, but it
appears that the engineers cannot
do anything like these anymore

In reference to Ed Herner's
letter bitching about conversion of
the Angus building lounge to
study space: please offer him my
sympathies. Such a poor pathetic
person needs a shoulder on which
to cry.
I only wish that he had been in
commerce 4 at the start of September when we found out that our
study room had been appropriated
for a print shop. That action left
Henry Angus 213 as the only study
room for a faculty of over 1,200
undergrads. A maximum of
perhaps 40 spaces, of which over
half were taken up by non-
commerce students.
So we bitched.
Over a month of bitching got
room 213 for a commerce 4 study
room. We also got three tables and
a couple of chairs.
The commerce administration,
being kind and gentle people,

undergrads deserved a study area
close to their classes also. Hence
the conversion of the lounge.
It is unfortunate that it meant the
loss of one of the very few quiet
lounges on campus but it adds a
quiet study area.
May I ask Herner why, if his
bitch is with the loss of the lounge
itself, he is bitching about people
claiming a carralls as their exclusive property? Any idiot who
lets them get away with that,
preferring to cry and whine, instead of calmly placing the un-
tended books and assorted crap on
the floor and sitting down himself,
deserves to study in 'quiet
Sedgewick' or 'quiet Brock'.
The students 'left out in the cold',
my ass. The students of commerce
were left out in the cold when they
first took away our study room.
Since the administration was only
thinking of the bitches of the
commerce faculty (which, by the
way, is situated in. Henry Angus —
science is not) it would hardly be
appropriate for us to complain
about any reparations they make.
Herner, if you wish to bitch about
lack of student lounge space, bitch
to science about the lack in their
many buildings. Don't bitch to
commerce about the lack in our
building. We happen to consider
our study space more important
than your lounge space.

UEL beauty
For some time now I have been
reading about the university endowment lands being taken over
for development purposes. The
article 'AMS sponsors UEL poll'
(The Ubyssey, Oct. 25) mentions
the most recent plans.
May I, as a foreign student, say
how beautiful the endowment lands
look. If you look at all those trees
you will notice it took years and
years for nature to let them grow.
There is beauty and nature out
there and I think that should be
reason enough to keep the endowment lands as they are.
It strikes me as being odd for
man to come along and chop-off in
one blow something that has taken
years to grow.
To be sure I know the purposes to
which the university endowment
lands would be put are for man's
benefit. However I fail to understand if there isn't another
solution to man's-problems other
than cutting up the UEL. Are the
UEL the last place where a housing
project should go up?

Previously marked S44.95 each, and for
S25 you won't find a better speaker! The Amplifier
The amplifier is the heart and the
nerve center of your music system. It
receives the tiny electrical impulses
from a phono cartridge, radio tuner or
tape recorder and amplifies them until
they're strong enough to drive a
high-fidelity loudspeaker system.
It also accommodates the necessary
controls for switching among tape,
tuner or record player, and for
adjusting volume, stereo balance,
treble and bass in addition to all the
other operating factors.
The part which contajns the various
controls is called the preamplifier
(preamp for short); the part which
pumps out power to the speakers is the
power amplifier.
In most cases, these two sections are
combined into a single piece of
equipment, called an integrated
amplifier. But in equipment with very
high power output, the preamplifier
and power amplifier come as two
separate pieces.
This permits the preamplifier with
its controls to be placed conveniently,
while the larger high-wattage power
amplifier can be kept out of sight.
This power of an amplifier is rated in
watts, much the same way that the
power of an automobile is rated in
horsepower. The total number of watts
produced by an amplifier is divided
between the two stereo channels so
that what is described as a 50-watt
stereo amplifier actually delivers 25
watts per channel.
One of the first things to decide
when you go shopping for an amplifier
is how much power will be enough for
you. In the view of most high-fidelity
experts, "the bigger, the better"—but
the price of amplifiers goes up rather
steeply as power output increases, so
it's a good idea to ask yourself just how
much power you really need.
First, let's clear the air of a popular
misconception. A 100-watt amplifier
does not play ten times as loud as a
10-watt amplifier, since the human ear
doesn't translate the power output of a
sound system into a directly
proportional sense of loudness.
Why, then, pay a premium for those
extra watts if you can hardly hear
them? The answer is that sheer
loudness isn't necessarily high fidelity
sound. Let's say that you have a 5-watt
amplifier and a 40-watt amplifier
playing alternately through the same
loud-speaker. Even at the identical
volume, chances are that you will be
able to pick the more powerful one
You may not be able right away to
put your finger on why it sounds
better. But somehow the bigger
amplifier is able to get the music across
more convincingly. There is a margin of
naturalness and ease that makes for
greater listening pleasure.
What lies behind these subtle
differences gained by the extra watts?
The key to the problem is power
reserve. Certain passages in music are
like steep hurdles to the amplifier: the
crash of a kettle-drum, a chord struck
fortissimo on the piano, the deep bass
of the bull fiddles or the swelling
sonorities of the full orchestra. At
those moments, the power content in
the music jumps tremendously.
So the question is how much power;
you need to achieve unfettered
sonority in your particular setup. The
first thing to consider is the efficiency
of your loudspeakers. Inefficient
speakers absorb more power than
efficient ones to produce the same
volume of sound.
In tonal quality an inefficient speaker
may be equal to or superior to an
efficient one. The term merely means
that it gobbles up more watts. The
manufacturer of your loudspeaker very
likely recommends a minimum wattage
to drive his unit.
Oddly enough, your home decorating
scheme also affects the number of
watts you're going to need. Rugs,
pillows, upholstered furniture and
heavy draperies swallow up a lot of

To Be or Not To Be!
Many articles discussing the
technical aspects of four channel sound
have been written. While these are
both interesting and important they all
omit some basic questions. Why four

quadraphonic (term used to refer to
four channel) instead of stereo? Why
should I convert my present stereo to
In the mid 1950's the high fidelity
industry developed two channel high
fidelity, better known as stereo. Many
consumers were bewildered by this
. new development. Their monaural
systems sounded great; so why
change? What they didn't realize was
that stereophonic sound was to add a
new dimension to sound reproduction;
that was "width." No longer was an
orchestra confined to a corner of the
room. Instead the orchestra was made
to expand across an entire wall. The
listener could now distinguish the
sound of instruments coming from the
left, center and right as he would in a
concert hall.
It is now the 1970's and the industry
is in the midst of another technological
development that promises to be as
dramatic an improvement as stereo
was to monaural. Quadraphonic is
Four channel sound adds the final
dimension to sound reproduction,
"depth." This new dimension adds the
life, vibrance and excitement to music
that was only felt during live
In the typical quadraphonic setup
four(4) speaker systems are placed
one(l) in each corner of the room with
the listener in the center. To many it
seems unnatural to think of music as
coming from the rear of the room. In
fact, the music in the concert hall is
being reflected from the walls, ceiling
and floor, so you are hearing sound
from the rear. This reflected sound
called ambience is what makes the live
performance superior to that of stereo
reproduction. It is the reflected sound
in the concert hall which gives the
added depth and presence that makes
the live performance what it is "live."
The two rear channels of quad
reproduce the ambient sound of the
concert hall to deliver the true
excitement of the concert hall in the

sound reproduction available to us it is

Quad will not outmode your stereo
library. Most stereo records have
ambience. The problem has been that
stereophonic reproduction has eliminated this added presence during
playback. These same records played

which unleashes the recorded ambience will deliver realism in sound you
never realized was there. This, coupled
with the fact that there are many
four(4) channel records and tapes on
the market already with the numbers
steadily increasing, has encouraged
many stereo owners to convert to
What to buy? The buyer of a four
channel system need not be confused
by the terminology being used in the
quad vocabulary. Words such as
Derived, Matrix, Discrete and
Synthesize, etc. All these words define
the many ways four(4) channel sound
recordings can be made. The important
thing to keep in mind is that all these
various methods deliver four(4)
channel sound. Eventually the industry
will adopt a standard system for the
reproduction of quadraphonic sound.
The consumer need not fear
obsolescence if he buys quadraphonic
equipment that either has or can be
adapted to have the capabilities to
reproduce all the various systems
being used. Such equipment is on the
reputable audio dealers shelves now.
Where to buy? Reputable audio
dealers are the only reliable place to
get information about and purchase
quadraphonic edquipment. It is this
kind of audio dealer who is best
equipped to knowledgeably answer
questions, demonstrate and deliver the
latest, most versatile, quality equipment best suited to your individual
needs. The dealer you choose should be
a large well known firm that has a large

If you're planning to build your own
home—or are in the process of doing
so—and music is important in your life,
now is the time to think about a built-in
music system.
You're in an enviable position
compared to someone who's buying an
older home or moving into an
apartment. He faces two major
problems you can avoid—namely, the
placement of speakers and the
concealment of unsightly wires and
By planning your component system
at the same time you plan all the other
multitudinous details about your new
home, you'll wind up with the perfect
music system for your needs—and
avoid the necessity for costly
alterations later.
Once the studs for the walls are up
and the roof is on, it's time to visit a
high fidelity dealer who specializes in
built-in component systems.
The first thing necessary to establish
is the approximate amount of money
you want to allocate for your home
music system and after that, tlfe
number of rooms you want wired for
stereo (or quadraphonic) sound.
Hi-fi dealers will work with you in
various ways. Many are willing to let
you buy your components wherever
you like; they'll charge you only for
consultation, labor and materials.
Others will charge you only for
components plus a small charge for
labor and materials; their profit comes
from the sale of components. Other
dealers will give you a lump sum
estimate for the entire job, including
However you decide to do it, the final
cost is bound to be about the same,
since the cost of components to the
installer is fixed, the cost of labor and
materials is the same for any dealer
and all dealers operate on about the
same profit ratio.
It is possible, of course,to do the job
yourself, with the help of a regular hi-fi
dealer, your builder and an electrician.
But   even    if    you've    had    building
experience,   the   technical   problems
involved in the installation of a music
system   are  many   and   best  left   to
experts in the field.
After determining your budget, the
next step is to make up your mind as to
what components you want in which
room. You may decide that a single
central music system in your living
room or den plus extension speakers in
two or three other rooms will be the
answer. Or you may decide to have a
second stereo system in your
recreation room.
There are numerous advantages to
planning ahead on your stereo system.
You needn't place components in every
room but you can wire rooms with the
idea of installing components later on.
And you have the option of placing
speakers wherever you like, instead of
being forced to compromise due to the
existing nature of a room. Then, too,
controls can be situated in the most
convenient and inconspicuous place.
After you've decided what will go
where, now or at a future date, the
installer can plan where cables should
go, locating switches and outlets. Many
times, the installer works with your
electrician, stapling antenna wires and
speaker cables to the wall studs before
the plasterer takes over. Or the
electrician sometimes does your hi-fi
wiring at the same time he puts in your
electrical system. The difference is that
hi-fi wiring doesn't run through
donduits but is stapled directly to the
Next, while the plasterers are doing
their job, controls and outlet taps must
he placed and fitted. If your system is
to have a single sound source, all you
need is a simple stereo volume control.
If you plan to use two sound sources
which are located in different rooms
interchangeably, you will also need a
toggle switch.
After the painters have finished
their work, the installer can then put in
the components. If you decided to have
speakers or other parts of the system
built into the walls, he can do the
installation before the painters are
through, so that any cracks can be
hidden. Then come the finishing
touches, such as the connection of your
FM antennas, the speaker leads to
amplifiers and speakers, the mounting
of the turntable or tape deck and any
other last details.
Homes under $25,000 are usually in
developments and don't have the
flexibility in options that more
expensive homes have. But if you're
paying $25,000 or more, it would be a
smart move, to decide on your music
system during building, not after
you've moved into an established
environment. You're Sure to be happier
with the ultimate result, as well as
ahead financially.

Almost a century has passed since
Edison first recorded sound. Today's
recordings, with their concert hall
clarity, bear small resemblance to their
ancestral recording. But that day in
1877 when "Mary had a little lamb" was
played back in tremulous tones on
Edison's first talking machine was the
start of the enormous riches we now
enjoy in recorded sound.
The first Edison model operated by
hand crank, could repeat once or twice
a few words which had just been
recorded. That was it. The recording
could not be replayed, nor could it be
removed and another placed on the
machine. Neither could be duplicated.
Nevertheless, the talking machine
was put on the market before long by
several different companies. The first
to be marketed in the year of 1887 was
the "Gramaphone." Instead of the
original Edison method which employed a tinfoil recording embossed by
a needle, the "Gramophone" used a
method invented by a team named
Tainter-Bell in which a point cut a
groove in hard wax-coated paper. This
cylinder could be removed and another
played in its place. Soon Edison
improved his machine enough to go
into business through the Columbia
Company. Columbia also began selling
cylinder records. These records had to
be made one at a time, since there was
no way of duplicating them.
Also in 1887, a German-American
named Emile Berliner officially
announced his new disc method of
recording and reproducing sound. His
side-to-side groove recordings were of
higher fidelity than the cylinder
Machines were still being operated
by hand crank. Men were at work,
attempting to devise a spring motor
which would sustain the necessary
steady speed.
Meanwhile, Emile Berliner was also
busily at work, searching for a practical
way to duplicate the records for mass
production. He finally discovered a
method which is basically the process
in use today. He coated the original
disc with copper and nickel plate. This
was then split off and used as a
negative, with the grooves projecting
as ridges. It was mounted and used to
stamp out duplicate records on a
heated material. The problem then was
to find the proper material and he tried
many without much success.
Finally, Berliner came up with
another brainstrom, pressing some
recordings in a plastic ordinarily used
for buttons. The results were
remarkable. Their "Durinoid" material
was the start of the shellac record
which was in use for many years.
A man named Eldridge Johnson
solved the motor problem by devising
one that really did the job. He worked
with Berliner in the making of
gramaphone players and later founded
the Victor Talking Machine Company.
At the turn of the century, the new
and energetic recording industry felt
ready for expansion but faced a
considerable handicap. This was not
only the competition between disc and
cylinder recordings, but also the fact
that various patents were tightly held
by various companies, denying each
some refinement needed to better his
Matters reached such an impasse
concerning patents that the recording
industry was forced to shut down. In
1902, happily, a patent pool was
arranged, which put most of the
patents into a pool from which all major
companies could draw.
Thus the recording industry thrived,
and the following years found the
greatest singers, the leading actors and
actresses, the finest instrumentalists

recording their genius for all their
world—and future generations—to

What's Happened Since
In the summer of 1970, Advent
brought out the first cassette deck
combining all the necessary ingredients, and also made chromium dioxide
cassettes available for the first time. In
the two years since, the idea has
caught on: there are now serious decks
incorporating Dolby circuitry available
or on the way from Concord, Fisher,
Harman-Kardon, Kenwood, Lafayette,
Panasonic, Sansui, Sony, Tandberg,
TEAC, Wollensak, and a second,
higher performance model from
Advent. Chromium dioxide tape is now
marketed by Ampex, BASF, Memorex,
Sony, and TDK, as well as Advent.
Just as important as the availability
of high-performance cassette hardware
is the growing commitment of many
recording companies to releasing
"Dolbyized" pre-recorded cassettes.
Even though there are still further
refinements to be made in the
high-speed duplicating(including the
use of Cr02 tape), the best Dolbyized
releases now available are easily as
satisfying as a good LP record.
Although these new cassettes are still
hard to find in the stores, there are
officially over three hundred of them,
and the majority of cassettes now
being released are Dolby-processed.
This is a significant first step.
However, to be widely and critically
accepted, prerecorded cassettes need
more than just the Dolby System. New
duplicating equipment is required, as
are more careful duplicating techniques, and above all chromium dioxide
tape should be used. Advent has
decided that it's necessary to bring out
a library of prerecorded cassettes on
chromium dioxide this fall; initial
experiments have verified our long
held belief that such cassettes can be
virtual duplicates of good master tapes.
What the New Cassette Is
What all this history and technology
adds up to is a new medium
particularly suited to those of us who
enjoy what comes out of a good music
system, more than the "hardware" that
goes into it. The new kind of cassette is
not a substitute for discs and open reel
' tape, but rather an alternative to
them—an alternative that is undeniably attractive in its own right. The
cassette does things (and things can be
done with the cassette) that are truly
•A cassette of the new "Dolbyized" and
chromium dioxide breed can go
virtually anywhere. The same cassette
can be played on a $30 mono portable, a
car stereo player, or a super high
fidelity system—and it can survive all
those uses intact and unchanged in
sound quality.
•The cassette's ease of handling and
ability to store more musical
information in less space than any
other medium are unparalleled.
Playing a cassette literally requires the
push of a button; a cassette holding the
equivalent in playing time and fidelity
of two LP records can. fit in a shirt
•The cassette is the first device that's
really at home as both a playback and a
recording medium. On the one hand,
with a good cassette deck you can make
your own recordings with ease
unmatched by open-reel recorders. On
the other hand, you can go into a record
store and buy high-quality cassettes,
already recorded (which are immune to
the accidental damage that plagues
More than anything else, this new kind
of cassette leaves both records and
open-reel tapes far behind in the
respects that determine whether
something is fun to do. Cassettes are
wonderfully suited to the casual life
most of us lead; yet they no longer
require any sacrifice in sound quality. [ijElectra

We were amazed by the popularity of this
Electra Sound System!   We knew it would
sell well because it had a combination of
features at a price that couldn't be beat.
We ordered a thousand pieces, expecting
them to last quite a while.  But they sold
very rapidly and we've had to re-order and
re-order since then.
You'll understand why when you see and
hear this sound system.
The Electra SS-7 has a good quality am

Originally looked down upon by
critical music listeners and audiophiles,
the small, handy, and once lowly tape
cassette has over the past two years
become the most talked about device
for recording sound. The up-to-date
cassette, embodying a number of
technological advances, has emerged as
the first serious challenger to the LP
disc and open reel tape as the only
ways to store high fidelity music.
Although the technological improvements responsible for this transformation are enough in themselves to
intrigue anyone interested in the "nuts
and bolts" of hi-fi, what's much more
important is the growing awareness
that today's high-performance cassette
is a whole new "thing", the first
significant new medium for recorded
sound since the development of the LP
record back in the late '40's.
In The Beginning
Historically, the cassette was not
conceived with hi-fi music recording in
mind when it was originally invented
by Philips of Holland. By placing a
relatively small amount of very narrow
recording tape permanently attached
to two hubs within a plastic housing,
Philips created an easy-to-handle
portable recording and playback
medium, particularly appropriate to
dictation, recording lectures, tape
"letters", and the like. There was no
pretense to high fidelity, because while
the very slow recording speed (1-7/8
ips) and narrow tape were the key to
the cassette's convenience, they were
also responsible for limiting potential
fidelity (particularly because of annoying tape "hiss").
Given the original design goals, the
cassette was a great success.
Furthermore, as recording companies
began releasing pre-recorded cassettes
of music, the cassette gained some
popularity for playing music in those
situations where really good sound was
not demanded—in portables, car
players, and so on.
f AKAI's CS-35D cassette record and play
deck has a rugged piano-key operation,
100% solid state electronics, index counter, tape selector switch for regular or
special tape, Twin VU meters, and slide
type volume controls. You can record
and play all your favorite music onto convenient cassettes. Up to two hours of
music can be stored on a single cassette,
a third the size of a pack of cigarettes.
Previously marked #229.95, the CS35D
is a great value for only $179.
Then, in February of 1970, Advent
Corporation literally overnight
changed the definition of the cassette,
by demonstrating that the cassette
could be a qualitatively new and higher
level of device. What we did at a
showing held in New York for the press
and recording industry was to pull
together for the first time a series of
existing technological advances which
we felt could bring off the
We carefully compared cassettes to
master tapes and the best disc
recordings to show that the cassette
could have the same kind of musical
fidelity as those discs and master
tapes. As the New York Times dryly
put it, "The results were astonishing."
The understandably cynical trade
representatives, predisposed to considering the cassette as strictly non
hi-fi, were stood on their collective ear.
The Advances Responsible
Equally exciting as the sound quality
demonstrated was the fact that we
accomplished it with existing technology, and without trickery(in other
words, we used neither laser beams
nor     mjrrors).     The     three     major
ingredients    for    this    new
cassette were shown to be:
kind   of
cassette deck $179
1. The Dolby System, a means of
electronically getting around the major
bugaboo of slow-speed tape recording,
the background "hiss" inherent in the
tape itself. Invented originally for
professional tape recording, Dr. Ray
M. Dolby's remarkable device has
proved to be the key to the cassette's
future as a high fidelity medium.
Basicall, Dolby's patented invention is
a circuit which very cleverly processes
the music going onto the tape when it's
recorded; playing back the specially-
processed ("Dolbyized") tape through a
similar circuit results in a breathtaking
reduction in tape hiss with no effect on
the music (in other words, there's no
filtering of high frequencies).
2. Chromium dioxide tape, developed
by du Pont, using a new material for
the magnetic oxide coating (up to that
time only variations of iron oxide had
been used). "Cr02" (as it's called for
short) doesn't even exist in nature, yet
this man-made substance has some
remarkable properties particularly
appropriate to the demands of cassette
recording. In particular, when used on
a cassette recorder specially and
properly designed to handle it, Cr02
tape provides the last bit of hiss
reduction which Dr. Dolby's circuit
alone can't quite eliminate at the very
slow 1-7/8 cassette speed.
3. Improved cassette transport
mechanisms, heads, and electronics.
It's not that such problems as wow and
flutter, distortion, and limited frequency range were at all insurmountable; rather, before the Dolby System
and Cr02 tape, there was no reason to
apply the necessary effort. Our
demonstration showed that the reasons
for not improving cassette "basics" no
longer existed.

Warring sides must decide
The most recent outbreak of war in the Middle East has
hopefully served as a firm statement to the Arabs, the Israelis
and the entire world that some lasting peace must be worked
out in the area.
The costs of this war have been staggering. Analysts have
estimated that it costs each of the warring nations anywhere
from $300 million to $1 billion a day to maintain a state of war.
The world also bears a great cost in this war. Many western
countries face a cold winter due to Arab manipulation of oil
supplies as a weapon of war. The U.S. and Russia are spending
billions of dollars in re-supplying the war machines on both
sides. The possible damage to the hopes for detente between
east and west are ever threatened by hostilities.
The third group suffering from this conflict and having
aspirations different from those of both Israel and the Arab
states are the Palestinians, used as political pawns, kept in
refugee camps and generally deprived of their rights as people.
Jews have throughout history
referred to the area now called
Israel as their homeland, both
spiritually and physically. Since
the days of Joshua more than 3,000
years ago there has been continuous Jewish settlement in this
area. The only time Jews did not
live in Israel in large numbers was
during those periods of forced
expulsion. Israel was the focal
point of their religion and culture.
In the late 19th century, through a
coincidence in time of overt Jewish
persecution, historical opportunity
because of the Ottoman Empire's
liberal stand on all immigration to
Palestine and strong leadership
the modern Zionist movement
'   began to take shape.
Large numbers of Jews fleeing
the pogroms of Russia began
arriving in Palestine with the hope
of settling the land and reestablishing a homeland for the
At the same time the Arab world
was re-emerging from a long
period of oppression under Ottoman rule. They had dreams of
rebuilding a civilization of equal
stature with the great Arab Empire of a millenium before. They
envisioned a unified people,
politically and ethnically, encompassing the greater portion of
the Middle East.
In the early 20th century, the
national movements did not
conflict and in fact were somewhat
complimentary in bringing about
development and settlement of
Palestine. Before Jewish immigration, Palestine was basically
0 a desolate, uninhabited area,
except for Jerusalem, Jaffa, and
small pockets of nomadic herdsmen. With increased Jewish
settlement, cultivation and industry, more Arabs and Jews were
enticed to the area. Only after the
Arab and Jewish populations had
grown to substantial numbers did
the inevitable conflicts arise. In
1947, when the already intolerable
situation was further compounded
* by the plight of the survivors of
Hitler's genocide, the United
Nations attempted to settle the
conflict in the only equitable way.
It partitioned Palestine on a
demographic basis into two independent states, one Jewish and
one Arab.
It is interesting to note that one
of the strongest supporters of the
partition was the USSR. Andrei
Gromyko, then deputy foreign
^minister said in the United Nations
in 1947:
"The representatives of the Arab
states claim that the partition of
Palestine would be an historical
injustice. But this view of the case
is unacceptable... The solution of
the Palestine problem based on a
partition of Palestine into two
^eparate states will be of profound
historical significance."
In spite of the tenuous
geographical position in which the
Jewish state was to find herself, it
readily accepted the plan. The
Arab states did not. One day after
Israel declared her independence
on May 14, 1948, the Arab states
declared war on Israel. The
^bombing of Tel Aviv that very day
demonstrated to the world, in the
words of Azzam Pasha, Secretary
General of the Arab League, that
"this will be a momentous war of
extinction, spoken of in history like
the Mongol invasions and the
In the ensuing battle Israel
managed to repel the attacking
armies, thus making the first
Jewish state in 1,900 years a
reality. The Palestinian Arab state
promised in the partition plan was
never created because the
Hashemite Kingdom of Tran-
sjordan annexed the area now
called the west bank of the Jordan,
and on the southern front, Egypt
annexed the Gaza strip. With the
loss of these lands, taken over by
fellow Arabs, the Palestinian
people were deprived of their
claim to nationhood.
The past 25 years of history in the
Middle East, a period of continuous
hostility with numerous border
incidents, twice flaring up into
major wars, was a time in which no
Arab nation ever recognized the
state of Israel and a time when
Palestinians were relegated to
refugee camps.
The plight of the Palestinian
refugee is of serious concern to
anyone trying to get a true picture
of the Middle East conflict and its"
underlying problems. The problem
begins, as mentioned earlier, with
the large influx of both Jews and
Arabs into Palestine in the early
1900s. At the turn of the century,
approximately one-third of a
million people lived in Palestine,
50,000 of whom were Jewish.
By 1947, just prior to partition,
just less than 2 million inhabitants,
thirty-five per cent of whom were
Jewish, lived there. In 1948, after
Israel's declaration of statehood,
600,000 Arabs left the Jewish state,
150,000 remained in the Jewish
sector, and the other 600,000 were
already living in the designated
Arab sections of Palestine.
Many Arabs fled only for fear of
being caught in the crossfire of
battle. Many fled because of a
genuine fear of Israel. They
neither wanted to live in a Jewish
state nor did they feel they were as
safe as they would be in an Arab
state. Jews did not force the Arabs
to leave. In fact, documented
evidence from, for example, BBC
reporters shows that Israeli
leaders publicly urged all Arabs to
remain and live in peace as full
citizens of Israel.
(One need only to look at the
situation of Israeli Arabs today to
see that Israel was sincere in her
invitation and true to her pledge.
Arabic is a national language,
spoken in the classroom and
parliament; Arabs have full voting
rights; seven of the 120 MPs including the deputy speaker are
Arab; and the Arab worker is
protected by the same labor
organizations as the Israeli Jew.)
Ironically, it was the Arab
leaders who were partly responsible for instigating Arab
migration. The Grand Mufti of
Jerusalem told the Arabs to leave
for the few short weeks it would
take the Arab armies to annihilate
Israel. In fact, some Arab leaders
even intimated that any Arab
found in a Jewish section when the
victorious armies arrived would be
treated as  collaborators.   The
Jordanian journal Ad-Difaa,
September 6, 1954, carried the
editorial comment: "The Arab
governments told us 'get out so we
can get in' — so we got out but they
did not get in." These 600,000
people constituted the nucleus of
the Palestinian refugees, and were
supplemented by natural increase
and the Arabs living in those areas
Egypt and Jordan annexed so that
the present number of Palestinians
without a homeland is about 1.5
Clearly, no solution to the Middle
East conflict can be found that
does not consider the aspirations
and needs of the Palestinians as
well as the Israeli and Arab states.
The Arab states, notably Egypt,
have suffered a loss of pride at the
hands of the Israelis in three
successive wars. The Six Day War
in 1967, which led to the Israel's
occupation of Arab lands resulted
in the Arab attack on Yom Kippur
— the holiest day of the Jewish
year — in order to recapture those
lands. Israel has also served as a
focal point for Pan-Arabism. It is
only on this one issue that the Arab
nations have achieved any
modicum of unity and even there it
is short-lived from war to war. The
ultimate goal, even as late as 1967
as the adjoining cartoon so aptly
demonstrates, was the complete
annihilation of Israel.
Today, although the political
statements are less forceful, the
military threats to Israel are
equally dangerous.
For the past 25 years the
Palestinian people have been used
as political pawns, kept in refugee
camps where living conditions are
at best intolerable. When the
refugees first left Israel, Egypt
and Jordan placed them in these
camps, cared for by a U.N. relief
agency. At no time was there any
attempt to integrate them into the
fabric of the Arab socieites and
virtually no money was spent by
the Arab government for their
In the Six Day War, these camps
fell to Israeli hands. Substantial
economic aid has been forthcoming from the Israeli
government and while politically
unfeasible to integrate them fully
into Israeli society (neither the
Palestinian nor the Israeli wants
that) they have been given greater
economic, political and freedom
than under Arab occupation.
However, this is still far from
adequate, and a tenable solution to
the Palestinian problem demands
the establishment of an
autonomous Palestinian Arab
The Israelis basically demand
only one thing. Recognition of their
right to exist within secure and
recognized borders, as specified in
a U.N. security council resolution
of November, 1967.
As has been shown at staggering
cost in the past and again today,
war cannot bring a stable
equilibrium to the Middle East.
Future wars would mean the
continued retardation of Arab
social and economic development
For Israel there is the added
danger that the first war it loses
will likely be its last. The lack of
Palestinian military power obviously precludes as an avenue for
achievement of their aims.
Negotiations are the only viable
road to peace.
Direct negotiations are
necessary, for an "agreement"
forced on either side by the super
powers is not an agreement. The
Arab nations want their occupied
lands back. Israel will not and
cannot be expected to return any
captured lands without a clear
peace settlement. To return land
without such a pact would make
Israel the first country in history to
ever give back captured lands to
an enemy still engaged in attempting to destroy her. Some of
the lands will undoubtedly be
returned as a part of a peace
package. Some land in the area
Iraqi daily Al-Manar
'Israel is being choked inside captive Palestine.'
(possibly the West Bank and the
Gaza strip) must go to the formation of a Palestinian state.
Finally, some land captured in
1967, notably the Golan Heights,
will undoubtedly be claimed by
Israel due to its overwhelming
strategic importance.

Difference means end to midnight shows
Because of a difference of
opinion with SUB building
manager Graeme Vance UBC's
film society has stopped showing
midnight movies.
Filmsoc had an agreement with
Vance and the Alma Mater Society
where the AMS took half the profits
from the films in return for film-
soc's use of SUB auditorium.
Filmsoc  staffed  the  movies
providing    projectionists    and
"Our main gripe was the extra
money we were trying to raise for
the club by showing midnight
movies was taken by the AMS,"
said Brian Bosworth production
manager of the series.
"We felt we were supplying all
the labour but only getting half the
, money," he said.
Vance   opposed   forfeiting   the
Hot flashes
AMS share of the series' profits
because security and management
were insufficient and if damage
resulted the AMS would be
responsible for damages.
AMS vice-president Gordon
Blankstein said Wednesday people
were either bringing beer into the
theatre or attending in "undesirable condition and liable to
cause damage."
Thus the AMS refused to forfeit
their share, he said.

ERIC NESTERENKO IN SWITZERLAND, playing hockey? That's what happened last year. This year he's
playing in the WHA with his old friends the Howe's and Bobby Hull. Look for a reunion night soon.
Nesterenko tires of hockey
Eric Nesterenko, a familiar
name to the sport's world, was in
town last week for the World
Hockey Association game between
the Chicago Cougars and the
Vancouver Blazers.
The iceman of many nicknames,
such as, "the Flin Flon Flash",
"Elbows", "Thinker" and
"Sonja", began his career when he
*\ was 18 years old and played NHL
hockey for 20 years. He retired last
season to coach an amateur team
in Switzerland.
He guided this team to a second
place finish but turned down an
offer to return. He claimed it was a
nuisance to worry about mundane
hockey with distractions like Swiss
skiing, wine and cheese. Also, he
found it difficult to communicate
with his players because they
spoke only French and he had the
' vocabulary of a French three year
Once back in his Chicago home
Nesterenko was immediately
signed by Chicago Cougar coach
Pat Stapleton, a former
Blackhawk teammate.
In an exclusive interview,
Nesterenko, forty this Halloween,
made it clear he feels it's more of a
trick than a treat to be playing
* professional hockey at his age.
Hunched over a bottle of imported Japanese beer, Nesterenko
talked about his current feelings
toward professional hockey.
"I'm back in the game for the
money. Money and the desire to do
one of Ihe things I can really do
"But hockey is a young man's
game. Ironically, not so much in
the physical sense as in a mental
sense, because anyone who is as
*old as I am and can still play
hockey has to be in fairly good
shape. It's the mental aspect of the
game. It's the sameness of the
hotel rooms, the sameness of the
restaurants and the entire
dreariness of the travel routine
that bothers me."
"Some nights, during a game,
Jfi'll glance up into the stands and
see 20,000 screaming fanatics
looking down on me and I think, my
God, what am I, a grown man,
doing here? This is insane!
Younger players can tolerate all
that. I've had difficulty relating to
younger players for the past few
"Ah, but when I'm having a good
* night, when I'm on, I float.
Everything falls into place, the
puck materializes on my stick at
the right time and skating becomes
almost effortless. Frank
Mahovlich and I have had games
where I've covered him and we
both seemed to float. It's a very
difficult sensation to describe."
The label "Sonja", a reference to
Sonja Henje, comes from his
skating expertise; his ability to
turn at a 170 degree angle, his
smooth strides. In short, his ability
to "float".
Nesterenko is a man who has
played against Maurice Richard in
the Forum, taken elbows from
Gordie Howe, and scored 230 NHL
goals, 200 of them in the old six
team league.
"What does it feel like to play
against the Cleveland Crusaders

instead of the Montreal
Canadians? How does it feel to
compete against 20 year old kids
fresh out of junior hockey, kids you
wouldn't let sharpen your skates
ten years ago?" I asked.
"No, it's not as bad as all that,"
said Nesterenko. There are 40 or 50
good players in the WHA. Sure, it's
a bit of a let down but it's a nice
way to close out a career. It's
better than a sharp stick in the eye,
"My future? I couldn't tell you at
this point in time," he said
mocking Whitehouse lingo. "But, I
know one thing, the next time I
come out here it'll be to ski. Christ
Almighty man you've got the best
goddam skiing in the world here."
Coach Peter Mullins says that
this will be a "rebuilding" year for
the Thunderbird basketball team.
Translated, it means the Birds
are unlikely to make the playoffs
this year.
Mullins will be relying on a new
centre and two returning starters
from last year's team when the
Birds meet Ron Thorsen and
company in the annual grad
reunion game Friday 8:30 p.m. in
the War Memorial gym.
The new centre is 6'11" Mike
MacKay, a transfer from East
Texas College. The 18-year-old
MacKay weighs 230 pounds and
should give UBC the size at centre
they lacked last year.
Returning from last year's team
which won 10 and lost 19 are forward Darryl Gjernes and guard
Bob Dickson. Dickson missed most
of last season with a hand injury.
Other expected starters are
Blake Iverson and Ralph Turner.
Iverson is a transfer from Vancouver City College. Turner played
for the UBC Jayvees last year
where he averaged 15.5 points a
game and led the team in
Mullins feel that this year's team
is stronger in every department
than last year's. However, it could
suffer from lack of size and experience. The average age of the
team is 20, making it one of the
youngest Mullins has coached in
his 12 years at UBC.
Mullins will use a full court press
and man-to-man coverage and will
rely on the fast break to keep the
pressure off the defence. To make
this work, the team needs good ball
control and handling, which
Mullins is confident of.
Defending intercollegiate
champions University of Alberta
have been picked by Mullins to win
again this year. He said that to
make the playoffs UBC will have to
beat the University of Victoria who
tied the Birds for third place last
mile starts
The contract mile is today at
noon. The event is being held at
John Oliver Pavilion track.
This is not an event of who is the
fastest runner but rather who can
best predict his finishing time.
Post entries will be accepted.
Mr. Ray Pucinen,
Kappa Sigma Fraternity
2280 Wesbrook Crescent,
Vancouver 8, B.C.
Dear Mr. Pucinen,
I am corresponding in regards to an incident that occurred in intramural hockey on Thursday, October 18, 1973 between yourself and
Referee, Mr. Heslop.
Incidents of that nature are not tolerated in the program. If attacking a referee physically is an illustration of your character, you
obviously cannot fit into the framework of Intramural philosophy.
The action being taken is as follows:
1. Effective immediately, you are banned from any intramural
activities for the remainder of the 1973-74 school year.
2. Your name has been forwarded to President Gage. (A section in
the Intramural bylaws compels us to do so.) What further action to be
taken is up to the discretion of the President.
3. Referee Heslop has not decided on further action as of the time of
this letter.
In closing, I must say, personally, that I am amazed at your attitude
towards the officiating and the other team members. If you would only
realize that you are adding virtually nothing to the game, we would both
be better off today. The referees, and team members and myself are not
grieving the lost of yourself from intramurals. Obviously you never
belonged in this program initially.
George K. Mapson
Director, Men's Intramurals
Within the past week 8 persons have been apprehended at the
