Array Tuition fees to rise — Kenny
By HEATHER WALKER
UBC students will pay higher tuition fees
next year, UBC administration president
Doug Kenny said Monday.
He said he could not yet give exact figures
for the increases, but the fees would have to
be "brought into line with the richer
provinces, Ontario and Alberta."
Ontario students currently pay almost
$600 in tuition fees, and fees will increase
$100 next year. Alberta fees are $500, and
will increase 25 per cent next year.
But Kenny said he did not think UBC fees
would be as high next year as Ontario's will
be.
Kenny said the board of governors will
have to make the final decision on how much
tuition fees will increase. "I think the board
will have to face the idea of a tuition fee
increase," he said.
"We only learned in a broad way about the
budget last week," Kenny said. "The
Universities Council still has to divide the
money, which it won't do until the end of the
month (February)."
The provincial government announced in
last Monday's budget speech it will increase
university funding to $191.9 million next
year from $172 million this year. But the size
of individual grants to each university will
not be known until the Universities Council
divides up the money between the three
public universities this month.
The presidents of UBC, Simon Fraser
University and the University of Victoria
met Friday to discuss tuition fees.
"All three agreed there is a significant
shortfall within the budget announced for
the universities," Kenny said.
"The issue facing us is how to maintain
the current quality of education.
"Last year UBC had to reduce its spending by $1.8 million, and this reflected some
erosion. This year we're faced with the
possibility of further erosion."
UBC will also consider charging higher
fees for some faculties.
"We will have to assess carefully the
possibility of differential fee increases in the
more expensive faculties," Kenny said.
But he said he did not yet know which
faculties would have higher fees.
"The closest I could come on that now
would be that it would probably be within
some of the professional faculties."
UVic president Howard Petch said tuition
fees there will increase by 25 per cent next
year. And he said fees at the other universities would probably increase by almost the
same amount.
"Before the budget came out I thought
fees would have to increase by 40 to 45 per
cent," Petch said.
"But the amount of the provincial grant is
larger than I had expected, so now I expect
the increase will be in the order of 25 per
cent."
Petch said UVic needs a tuition fee increase to fund its professional schools.
"The situation varies from place to place.
With us its our professional schools. With the
other universities I'm sure it's some other
problem.
"They'll find a similar situation, although
the particular needs will vary," he said.
UBC needs a fee increase "to maintain
present standards without further slippage," Kenny said.
"If you remove $1.8 million from the
system, it means a significant tightening of
the university's budget."
Petch said UVic will not be able to set the
exact amount of its fee increases until
March.
"It has to go to the board, but not this
meeting. We can't really discuss until after
the Universities Council meets in the last
week of February. It will come up at the
March board meeting."

B.C. Fed won't interfere with Trident
The B.C. Federation of Labor doesn't plan to
interfere with the construction in Port Moody of
missile-loading cranes for the Trident nuclear
weapon system.
Federation secretary-treasurer Len Guy said
Monday any action to halt construction of the
two cranes by Heede International Ltd. would
lessen the value of pickets in future labor
disputes.
The Pacific Life Community, a pacifist group
trying through non-violent protest to halt the
spread of nuclear weapons, asked the
federation last year to establish a picket line
around the plant.
Guy said the PLC asked that an information
picket line be set up to publicize the issue.
Unionized Heede employees would be allowed
to cross the line.
But Guy said the picket line is the
federation's chief bargaining weapon, and it
would lose effectiveness if the federation set
one up which its own members were allowed to
cross.
Guy also said it would be too difficult for the
federation to establish a strike picket to
completely close down the Heede plant.
"What we would have to do is shut the whole
operation down and go into full-scale war," he
said.
Any such strike not related to bargaining or
contract matters would be illegal and any
pickets would be immediately removed by
court order, he said.
This too would weaken the power of the
federation's most valuable weapon, he said.
"We just couldn't buy that kind of strategy."
Guy said the federation has always opposed
such things as the nuclear arms race and
supported groups such as the PLC, but he
would not say what kind of positive action the
federation is willing to take in opposing
Canadian involvement in the American Trident
project.
The federation wrote letters of protest to
Ottawa last year and Guy said it would continue to back the PLC's campaign by meeting
with PLC members to discuss strategy and by
giving it publicity.
He also said the federation is capable of using
stalling tactics to delay the completion of some
industrial projects, but would not say if the
federation would so so in the case of the Trident
missile-loading cranes.
Guy said there is not much more the
federation can do to oppose the construction of
the cranes,unless federation members were
prepared to go to jail.
"We've got enough causes of our own to go to
jail for," he added.
Guy said he could not attend a December
meeting with the PLC and the individual unions
represented at Heede because he was sick in
bed most of that month.
He said he was disappointed the PLC has
questioned his illness, but added there were no
disagreements between the federation and the
community other than on matters of strategy.
He said the federation is ready to meet with
the community at any time.
Harold Livermore is lucky he is
still working at UBC, board of
governors chairman Thomas Doh-
m said Monday.
Livermore, former head of the
Hispanic and Italian studies
department, says Dohm denied
him an appeal of his dismissal as
head. The UBC board of governors
fired Livermore as department
head Sept. 7 after complaints he
was an incompetent administrator.
He remains a professor in the
department.
Dohm said, "there is no such
thing as an appeal of board
decisions. If there was, we'd be
swamped.
"He (Livermore) had a very
good hearing, and is lucky he's still
here (at UBC)."
He said the board has already
taken a stand by dismissing
Livermore and will not take a
further stand on recent charges by

Tow firms
clean up
on campus
The number of cars towed away
from campus during a six-month
period has increased to 860 from
142 last year.
UBC traffic superintendent Dave
Hannah said Monday the figures
are for tows from Aug. 1 to Jan. 1.
The increased number of
towaways may be the reason for a
price war between three Vancouver towing firms to get the
contract to tow away cars at UBC.
But the name on the side of the
tow truck isn't what matters to
Hannah.
"Students can support the tow
truck people or the buses," he said.
"The youngsters won't buy
parking stickers and they insist on
parking on roads and blocking the
flow of traffic. They pay the
price."
And acting traffic supervisor W.
C. Ploeg Monday blamed the more
than 600 per cent increase in the
number of towaways on disregard
of UBC's traffic regulations.
"The rule are cut and clear but
many more people are ignoring us
this year," he said.
He added that the campus patrol
are not really the bad guys
students think they are.
"As a concession to students, we
stop towing at noon on Fridays. It
would mean all sort of complications trying to get cars back

He said cars are now towed away
they get three tickets for a parking
violation, instead of the five tickets
which previously resulted in
towaways.
He added the traffic office uses
the towing company which submits
the lowest bid "because we try to
go leniently on students."
But the three towing firms which

submitted bids are griping about
procedures in the bidding.
Carl Vanderspek, president of
Buster's towing, one of the bidders,
said Monday UBC's purchasing
department accepted bids after the
Dec. 31 deadline.
He said his firm, an affiliate of
Metro towing, was the only company to submit a bid before the
deadline. The firm's confidential
bid was for $14 per tow, he said.
He said that while UBC was
considering the bid, a Metro driver
who knew of the bid began working
for Wid's towing and suggested
that company offer a lower bid of
$12.50 per tow.
Autow then submitted a still
lower bid of $12 per tow, he said.
"They (UBC) knew they were
taking bids after the deadline,"
Vanderspek said.

Ontarians oppose tuition hikes
TORONTO (CUP) — A majority
of Ontario citizens do not think
university or college tuition fees
should be raised, according to a
recently-released Ontario
government survey.
Interface, a survey jointly
funded by the province's education
ministry and colleges and
universities ministry, reports that
54 per cent of the "general public"
surveyed did not agree to increased university tuition fees
while 52 per cent disagreed with
hiking fees for community
colleges. Only 11 per cent thought
university students should pay
more for their education while 10
per cent agreed with higher fees
for college students, according to
' the report released Jan. 18.
Those not venturing an opinion
comprised 28 per cent in the case of
universities and 31 per cent for
colleges.
Students opposed fee hikes
overwhelmingly, the survey

Canadian University Press
Community college bursars have
recommended that administration
collection of student activity fees
be eliminated at B.C.'s community
colleges.
A subcommittee of the College
Bursars Group made the recommendation to the education
ministry as input for a proposed
provincial Colleges Act.
Student representatives have
attacked the proposal, which was
approved by the majority of B.C.
bursars and said collection of
student activity fees should not be
the responsibility of the colleges'
business offices.
Student societies at colleges rely
on administrations to collect activity fees, but collection is not
guaranteed at colleges as it is at
universities under the Universities
Act.
Capilano College bursar Klaus
Thiel, a member of the subcommittee, said Monday; "from
our perspective in the business
office, the move not to collect
activity fees was from a pure
accounting procedure — not a
political move."
But Ross Powell, an executive
member of both the B.C. Student
Federation and the National Union
of Students, said Monday the
recommendation is political.
"This is an attack on the student
societies and their financial
viability. They (the bursars) know
what the effect of this will be on
student representation because of
colleges' continuity problems."
He added the bursars group
overstepped its boundaries in
making the recommendation.
Thiel said: "The responsibility
should be left up to you students. If
student societies can't collect, then
they will fall apart."
BCSF deputy chairwoman
Punam Khosla said Monday
student representation would be
undermined if fee collection was
left to student societies on a
voluntary basis.
"Non-mandatory   collection   of
.activity . fees   would   effectively
destroy   any   form   of   student
government," she added.
The recommendation from the
three-member subcommittee was
sent to the provincial government
in December.
Red tape tangles
senate vote recount
An unsuccessful candidate in the
recent senate elections has run up
against a tangle of red tape in her
attempt to get a recount.
UBC registrar Jack Parnall says
in a letter to Young Socialist
candidate Elaine Bernard that he
cannot hold a recount without
sending the request through a
maze of senate committees and
gaining the final approval of
senate.
Parnall, who in accordance with
the Universities Act, runs elections
for student positions on senate and
the board of governors, says there
is no provision in the act allowing
him to conduct a recount.
But Bernard, who came 31 votes
short of gaining a seat on senate,
said she will continue to press for a
recount despite the setback.
"By their own admission I have a
legitimate grievance. It just
doesn't make any sense that it
should have to take so long. It's a
Catch-22."
Parnall says he will send Bernard's request for a recount to the
senate agenda committee and
from there it may go to the senate
committee on the implementation
of the Universities Act and finally
to a meeting of senate.
He says the recount could be
completed by April 1 — a full two
and half months after the election.
Parnall indicates in the letter
that he thinks the section of the act
dealing with student elections is
undemocratic and should be
changed. But he insists that until
changes take place he is bound by
the act.
"We have no option in the con-
students against and only seven
per cent for fee hikes while 76 per
cent of university students opposed
tuition increases and only nine per
cent favored increases.
Of the total students questioned
on university fees, 74 per cent
opposed tuition hikes with only six
per cent in favor, the report found.
The sections of Interface containing this data were mailed to
student unions across the province
by the Ontario Federation of
Students. The OFS is leading a
campaign against a recently-
announced tuition fee hike of $75
for colleges and $100 for universities.
"This proves that support for our
stand is there. All we have to do is
go out and get it," said OFS
executive assistant Peter MacDonald in an interview.
The mailing was done to allay
the fears of some student leaders
that the community is generally in
favor of the hike, MacDonald said
in an accompanying letter.
Student leaders agreed at a
strategy session Jan. 15 to mount a
publicity campaign aimed at the
non-student community as well as
students. They decided to hold
referenda on their campuses
seeking student support for a half-
day class boycott Feb. 10.
duct of the elections. The
Universities Act, sections 43 to 46
inclusive, instructs senate to
formulate the rules for elections
and states specifically that the
registrar shall conduct all elections as are required.
"This procedure may well be undemocratic but the only remedy
lies in persuading those concerned
to have the act changed."
Bernard said her request is valid
because the registrar made a
mistake in counting the ballots in
the board election by forgetting to
count 300 votes for Basil Peters.
Bernard said problems with the
elections could be avoided if
control of the elections was passed
to the students.

Livermore

From page 1
Livermore that he wasn't given a
fair hearing.
"If he wants to maintain the
stand he's taking, that's up to
him," said Dohm. "He can do what
he wants."
In a letter published in the
Vancouver Sun Saturday, Livermore charged arts dean Robert
Will with overruling h i m and
committing "our department to
unnecessary expenditures which
may cost the taxpayer some $2
million over the years, and for
which I naturally refuse to bear responsibility."
Livermore refused to explain
Monday what the expenditures
were. He also refused to explain
the following comments:
• "Universities ought to be able
to manage their own affairs.
There are times when they can't.
• "The present administration
knows of better procedures for the
removal of a head, but has failed to
use them and prefers the present
archaic jumble of improvisations
to a more rational and honest
approach.
"My request that my own
reputation should be fully and
unreservedly cleared has received
no response. My other request that
, adequate guarantees be given for
the future of my department has
also met with no reply."
Will's secretary said Monday
that Will has no comments to make
on Livermore's allegations.
Vandalism creates hazards for blind
A rash of manhole-cover thefts
on campus is creating a serious
hazard to pedestrians, F. A.
Keetley, plant assistant director,
said Monday.
Keetley said someone has been
removing concrete covers from
sewer and water basin holes and
rolling them away, leaving a
hazard to blind students and people
walking on campus after dark.
The holes can be from two to 20
feet deep, he said.
"When these holes are uncovered they are a real hazard,
especially to blind students. For
just anyone walking around
campus   at    night    they    are
dangerous   too.   You   could   kill
yourself falling into a 20-foot hole."
Keetley said a blind student
broke his leg outside the new wing
of the biology building while
construction was going on.
"Luckily he stepped into an
uncovered catch basin and only fell
a few feet. There is another one
nearby though which is 15 feet
deep. He may have been killed if he
had fallen in it."
Some of the covers are locked
over the holes but Keetley said
locking them all  would  be  too
expensive.
-. Keetley also reported extensive
damage to lamps on campus. He
said the globes cost $80 to replace
and the sockets cost $150 plus installation costs.
Keetley said some of the lights
last a few days and some a few
months. He said six complete sets
of globes and sockets from lamp
posts recently disappeared in one
night.
New vandal-proof lights should
be installed shortly, Kettley said.
-"The cost of replacing these
lamps is fantastically expensive.
The money could be used for more
important things like necessary
building maintenance," he said.
RCMP  Corp.   Dave   Patterson
also complained about the vandalism. He said 60 lamps have been
stolen or destroyed during the last
few weeks.
Patterson said some people have
been arrested and tried for UBC
vandalism. He said some have
been acquitted and some are
awaiting convictions.
Patterson said some students
have been arrested. "This kind of
vandalism is usually done by
people who have consumed excessive amounts of alcohol.
"This behavior goes outside the
activity of a prank. Someone could
get seriously hurt and therefore
punishment is severe." Page 4

Leaky logic
plagues BoG
Leaks do not always originate from loose water taps.
That, or something equally inane, must be one of the
tried and true cliches of this university's board of governors.
And it's going to be fed to newly elected student board
member Moe Sihota today.
He's going to be warned by the tried and true board
members that what the board does is confidential. That it's
not in the true interests of the university for board members
to start talking about what the board has always labelled
confidential information.
In other words, Moe is going to be told that student
board members who want to be trusted by the rest of the
board simply do not leak information.
All of which leads us to the observation that board
members, those of the student variety, are of two basic types.
One type is the student representative who actually
represents students to the board of governors.
And the other type, which we've seen a lot more of
since students have been allowed to sit on the board, is the
student who represents the board to the students.
We hope Moe turns out to be one of those people who
represents students — that he lives up to his campaign
promises to let students know what goes on at the board, and
tells the board just what students think.
Because we're rather fed up with students who get
elected to the board and get sucked in by the attitude that
students are supposed to serve the interests of the board
before the interests of students.
Because we don't think those kind of student reps have
any effectiveness for students. And once they lose
effectiveness they've lost their credibility in the eyes of the
people that should matter most — the students who elected
them.
After all, what good is information if it isn't released so
students can evaluate it and act on it?
So when they talk to you today about leaks, Moe,
remember that what they'll say is the stuff you should let
leak — in one ear and right out the other.

Cycle trap

The University Endowment
Lands cycle trap seems to be
working very effectively.
In its continuing war on cyclists
the UEL management constructed
sharp black curbs disguised behind
Detour signs, and then waited till
cyclists ran into them. This
weapon works well.
When I went head over heels last
week, I retreated from the battlefield quickly to nurse my bloody
face and ear, and badly bruised
shoulder. My injured bike barely
made it.
We don't have a chance. Most of
our troops will follow the enemy's
cycle route signs and end up behind
the dentistry building in that
special spiral parking lot with no
exit.
Any remaining troops who dare
to advance on University
Boulevard or the sidewalk will be
garroted by neck-high wires so the
RCMP can arrest them for littering the pavements with noses,
ears and other appendages.

Poor quality film a rip-off, says student
The volume was much too low, and the dialogue
was extremely difficult to follow, even for those who
had read the play.
I also wish to express my disappointment with the
AMS for not postponing the showings until a better
film was available, especially after viewing it once.
The Alma Mater Society took the liberty of
presenting three showings of the film Othello last
week, by chance coinciding with many English 100
students' study of the play.
For $1.50, one had the choice of going to see the
play either at noon Wednesday, or noon or 6 p.m.
Thursday.
Now there is nothing wrong with the first come,
first served basis, but there is something wrong
with charging $1.50 for a very poor quality film.
I'm sure that those who saw the film will agree
with me that the sound track must have slipped its
rails several times throughout the showings and the
10-second intermission was probably nothing more
than a break in the film.
I think the AMS should review the condition of its
films before showing them to the public.
I would like a refund, but unfortunately the no
refunds sign was out when I bought my ticket.
(Then again, maybe the AMS did review the film
before showing it to the public.)

end. "Guess who this is." "Are you tall, dark and handsome?" she squealed
excitedly. "Well, I'm taller than Heather Walker and Ted Davis without his
hair. And I'm almost as dark as Charlie Micallef and Matt King's pictures,"
the voice said. "Have we met somewhere before?" she asked, giggling.
"Well, we watched Marcus Gee spill Black Russians on himself the other
night while Chris Gainor entertained in the other room and Steve Howard
swung by his pony tail from the ceiling," the voice replied. "Well you
aren't Anne Cormack or Sue Vohanka. And you can't be Doug Rushton
because you haven't used nasty language and you don't sound like John
Cartwright or Mike Miller," she said suspiciously. "Are you Rob Little?" A
yelp came across the telephone wires. "Paul Wilson?" There was dead
silence. "I give up," she said, beginning to sound bored. "But if you wait
10 minutes while I sweep my accountant friend here under the carpet, I'll
meet you downstairs," she added and hung up. Ralph Maurer looked at the
dead phone and wondered what would happen next.
Film fan knocks review
I take exception with Gray
Kyles' Friday review of Cousin
Cousine, at the Varsity, a film
which, according to Kyles, is
"mediocre at best."
Ah, the innocence of youth, the
deception of film reviewers.
My lady and I saw the film two
weeks ago and we loved it. Instead
of a "pretentious, vacuous little
picture," we saw a funny,
refreshing look at nonconformist
love.
Somehow, the image of reviewer
Kyles, slouched low, alone in the
back row, with acid pen aquiver,
comes to mind.
Kyles must have a gray image of
life, for the reviewer arrogantly
dismissed the learned comments of
sensitive, professional critics with
the snipe: "They have been fooled
by a glossy, slick picture."
More likely, Kyles has been
fooled, looking for further plot and
secondary character enrichment,
where there are none.
Kyles fails to see that all the
fim's characters, save the lovers
and children, are one-dimensional
because they are supposed to be.
The jealous husband who claims
that affairs are only decent when
done in secret, and the neurotic,
childlike wife only serve to
enhance the pure beauty and joy of
the lovers.
Laughably, after everyone
acknowledges their "sinful affair,"
the heroes, in fact, have had no
intimate knowledge of. each. Not
wanting to perhaps spoil an
otherwise good thing, they wonder
"Should we, or shouldn't we?"
Their situation is hilarious.
Again, I really loved the film
which I thought was indeed
charming, sensitive and honest.
Cousin Cousine is a beautiful film
for everyone — lovers, strangers
and even foresters.

Why is coffee so expensive
9
By KEVIN KELLEY
A 50 cent cup of coffee in your local
cafeteria?
Don't laugh. It could happen, perhaps
even during this year.
A pound of the well-loved beverage now
sells for $3 in many supermarkets. Some
commodity traders are forecasting a hike to
$4 per pound before the end of the year.
Why has the retail price of coffee soared
more than 100 per cent in one year? Who or
what is behind the sudden increase?
And can — or should — anything be done
about it?
Still smarting from the petroleum price
boosts of recent years, many U.S. consumers are quick to blame a "coffee cartel"
for the unforeseen inflation.
But as much as the producing countries
may desire it, there is no international
price-fixing body at work in the coffee industry. Instead, the demise of the cheap cup
of coffee is the result of a complex chain of
events.
A series of natural calamities and political
disruptions in key coffee-producing nations
last year did much to drive up the price of
green (unroasted) beans.
A pound of these imported beans costs 85
cents on the dock in New York city 12
months ago, $2.25 today. A large portion of
this $1.40 per pound jump can be attributed
to:
• A frost that devasted three-quarters of
Brazil's 1976 crop;
• Floods that ruined about 40 per cent of
Colombia's beans;
• The earthquake in Guatemala which
caused a 70 per cent drop in the anticipated
harvest;
• The war in Angola that resulted in an 80
per cent cut in that nation's coffee supplies;
• Ethiopia's attempt to destroy the
Eritrean liberation movenent, halving
coffee crops there, and
• The on-again-off-again rail link between
Uganda and Kenya's seaport that has meant
a 25 per cent drop in Ugandan coffee exports.
Even a nationwide
consumer boycott
would only mean
that Brazil will
withhold supplies
and fall back
on its profits.

Most significant among these problems
was the July, 1975 frost in Brazil, the
country which usually supplies between one-
third and one-half of the world's coffee.
Brazil's coffee fields were ravaged by the
cold. Only six million 132-pound bags were
harvested last year — less than a quarter of
the normal crop.
But the Brazilian government and the
indigenous oligarchy that owns most coffee
plantations moved quickly to turn adversity
into advantage. The country's surplus of
perhaps as much as 40 million bags was
tapped in order to meet a steadily increasing international demand.
With the other leading coffee producers
(Colombia and Angola.yalso suffering very
poor 1976 harvests, Brazil swiftly
capitalized on its enormous reserves which
were at least double the other producers'
combined surplus.
Brazil had an added incentive, besides
sheer profiteering, for manipulating the
coffee price upward.
With its much-touted "economic miracle"
nowmoreof an "economic morass," Brazil
decided to partially return to its "pre-
miracle" days when coffee accounted for
about 80 per cent of its export earnings.
The decision to exploit the world-wide
coffee supply shortage by depleting its
reserves and raising its coffee export tax 100
Letters
Defaced posters subversive insult
There are two things that should be made
clear about the recent defacement of the
sign outside SUB advertising Germaine
Greer — apart from the fact that the graphic
work is of extremely low quality and an
insult to the esthetic refinement of UBC
students as a whole.
The main objective of the defacement
would seem to be an attempt to keep people
from finding out when and where Greer is
appearing (from the efforts to alter times
and dates).
While this subversion may not seriously
inconvenience many people— UBC students
are capable of reading smaller print unlike,
perhaps, the unknown persons responsible
for obscuring this information — it does
indicate something about the motives of the
persons unknown.
For some reason, they do not want people
to listen to Greer.
For the same reason they are probably the
same people who have and most likely will
tear down posters advertising Greer.
This is an infringement on the rights of the
public and students to make their own
decision about hearing Greer.
More importantly, it forces one to ask,
"what are these persons unknown so afraid
of?" What do they not want people to hear?
Greer's lecture is being sponsored by the
Alma Mater Society speakers' committee.
Some people believe it is a women's
committee event for women's week, Feb. 9
to 16. Hence, to attack Greer is to attack the
women's committee.
It is true that the women's committee has
contributed some money to Greer's appearance here, but so have other groups —
graduate students, social work students,
arts students — and so have the students
represented by these groups.
Any attempt to disrupt Greer's lecture is
an attempt tosubvert an event sponsored by
a large number of students at this university.
Why should a small group of persons
unknown feel they have the right to impose
their poor taste and lack of consideration on
the rest of the students at UBC?

per cent to 83 cents on  the pound paid
handsome dividends.
In 1975, Brazil recorded $980 million in
coffee sales. In 1976, it reported $2.4 billion
sales on a slightly smaller volume.
The chief result of the estimated 150 per
cent hike in Brazil's coffee profits will be to
postpone the country's day of reckoning on
the international trade markets. The
government will use the coffee windfall to
shore up the sagging economy and subsidize
the cost of domestic coffee consumption.
But the money made in coffee will not
filter down to the urban laborer. It will
certainly never reach the coffee plantation
worker who will, if anything, be hurt by the
"coffee crisis."
Coffee, picked by hand by $l-a-day
laborers, is carefully controlled from
planting through harvesting to export by the
dictatorial government and by a handful of
wealthy Brazilian land-owning families.
Brazil rationalizes both the wholesale
price hikes and its recent doubling of the
export tariff on beans by contending that
coffee was sold at an artificially low price in
recent years.
Camilo Calazans, head of the Brazilian
ministry that regulates coffee, maintains
that the 1976 increases have served to raise
the cost to consumers to "a much more
realistic" level.
Most of the other producing nations would
agree with Calazans' view.
Countries such as Colombia, Angola and
the Ivory Coast sold the beans as recently as
a year ago for less than a dollar a pound.
They, too, are now benefiting from the
Brazilian-led move to profit from the supply
shortage.
But some producing nations are wary of
additional price hikes. Colombia, for instance, recently asked Brazil to join in a
price freeze. It feared that climbing retail
costs will stiffen consumer resistance and
result in a sudden, economically destabilizing drop in demand and sales.
U.S. coffee processors and roasting
companies have not profited exceptionally
from the price rise.
Major conglomerates like General Foods
Corp., which markets Maxwell House and
Sanka, and Folger Coffee Co., a subsidiary
of Proctor & Gamble, continue to enjoy a
comfortable profit margin but their immediate and long-term interests dictate that
they try to hold down the wholesale cost.
About 10 to 15 cents in profit accrue to
these monopolies on each pound of coffee.
The processors and roasters are
seemingly content to maintain this rate for
the time being. They realize that any increases in their sector, on top of the higher
prices being charged by exporting countries, will badly damage coffee sales.
Coffee consumption in the U.S. had
declined by 35 per cent since 1964, due
primarily to the increased popularity of soft
drinks and growing consumer awareness
that coffee lacks nutritional value.
U.S. supermarket chains are also
generally upset by current coffee prices.
Some combines, such as Stop and Shop in
Boston, Shopwell, Inc., in New York city and
Liberal Markets in Ohio*, have endorsed a
The price hikes

Brazilian capitalists
and western

move by some consumer groups to organize
a coffee boycott.
Supermarkets have traditionally used
coffee as a loss leader, an item that they
priced near wholesale levels in an effort to
lure shoppers into the stores. The value of
coffee as a loss leader has all but been lost
as consumers begin turning away from
pound cans priced even near the $3
wholesale cost.
Commodity traders have been the biggest
profiteers in the U.S. as skyrocketing terms
for "future contracts" have fed speculative
scheming. But even in this area, the traders
are making money through a situation they
are not directly controlling.
Coffee drinkers in the U.S. can meanwhile
do little more than bemoan the passing of
the "good, old, $l-a-pound days."
Even a well-organized nationwide consumer boycott would probably only mean
that Brazil will withhold supplies and fall
back on its profits until buyer resistance
weakens.
Other supplier nations, in a less advantageous position than Brazil, would not
be able to weather a U.S. boycott as easily,
especially if the growing market in Europe,
Japan and the Soviet Union were to
simultaneously contract.
These smaller exporting countries cannot
juggle their reserves as adeptly as Brazil
and their relatively constant supply would
not significantly curb prices in an industry
essentially controlled by Brazil.
The price hikes of 1976-77 can be seen then
as basically a struggle between Brazilian
capitalists and western consumers, with
some significant benefits gained by more
progressive third world nations.
Coffee growing nations, admittedly led by
the reactionary Brazilian regime, are
asserting their rightful control over their
own resources. They are forcing their
former colonizers to pay a more equitable
price for their product.
As one U.S. broker asked recently,
"where is it written that the rich industrial
nations should always enjoy cheap commodities produced by $l-a-day labor and
at the same time pass on their higher wages
and other costs to the poor countries in the
form of ever more expensive manufactured
goods?"

Puck 'Birds solid for second
By ROB LITTLE
Two weekend victories have
given the Thunderbird hockey
team a solid hold on second place
in Canada West standings, eight
points ahead of third-place
Calgary.
A solid team effort Saturday
gave the 'Birds a well deserved 6-3
win.
Aggressive forecheckirig by
Derek Williams, Tom Blaney and
Dan Lucas forced Calgary net-
minder Bob Galloway to make
several key saves in the early
going.
Steve Davis got a break when a
Calgary defender fell trying to
cover him. Davis broke in alone
and tucked a shot into the lower
right hand corner of the Calgary
net.
Marty Matthews carried the
puck deep into the Calgary end
before dropping a beautiful pass to
Jim Stuart who fired it home,
upping the 'Birds' count to two.
In the second period Bill Ennos
scored on Galloway on a blast from
the right wing. Ennos seemed as
surprised as the Dinos netminder
when he realized he had scored.
After Calgary scored to cut the
UBC lead to two, hard working
John Dzus performed a rare feat.

By PAUL WILSON
The UBC Thunderbirds couldn't
handle Rogers Ganes of the
University of Saskatchewan
Huskies this weekend as they split
their two-game series against the
Huskies winning Friday 81-68 and
losing Saturday 79-70.
The loss drops the 'Birds back
into fourth place in the league
standings with an 8-6 record.
In Friday'sgame the 'Birds were
able to work as a team to stave off
Ganes virtual one-man offense.
Five UBC players scored in double
figures as coach Peter Mullins
made good use of the depth he has
on his bench.
The top scorer for the 'Birds was
6' 4" centre Ed Lewin with 22
points. He shot a team high of 71
per cent from the field and grabbed
five rebounds. Guard Chris
Trumpy netted 12 points and
forward Jan Bohn scored 11 points.
High scorer for the Huskies was
Ganes with 36 points. Forward Bob
Thompson scored ;14 - points* and
forward Mark Hopkins potted
eight.
Ganes led the Huskies in rebounding pulling down 12 on offense and 11 on defense for a total
of 22. The Huskies outboarded the
'Birds during the game 45-32, but
the 'Birds outshot the Huskies
shooting from the field for a consistent 48 per cent.
The 'Birds were not as hot in
Saturday's game though,  con
sequently they went down to defeat
79-70.
The credit for the upset victory
could be shared between the two
largest Huskies, Ganes and
Thompson. They did all the work
for Saskatchewan and kept the
'Bird shooters totally under control.
High point man for UBC was
again Lewin with 15 points shooting
67 per cent from the field. Bohn
added 12 points and Bill Berzins
netted 10.
Ganes was again high man for
the Huskies scoring 40 points to
bring his weekend total to 76.
Thompson added 19 points. None of
the other Huskies managed double
figures.
Again the major difference in the
game was in the rebounding
department. The Huskies doubled
the 'Birds on the boards 57-28.
Ganes picked up the lion's share
grabbing 24 while Thompson pulled
down 13. The best rebounder for
the 'Birds was Lewin with five.
The 'Birds have been having a lot
of trouble in recent games in the
rebounding department since 6'
11" centre Mike McKay was injured. McKay is still having a lot of

back to Dzus and he slammed it
into an open net.
"How could I miss," he said
later. "I had the whole net."
Calgary added a second goal to
round out the second period. But in
the third period 'Birds' Williams
got a lucky break winning a faceoff
in the Calgary end and bouncing a
weak shot past Galloway.
The Dinos opened up in an effort
to close the gap and were rewarded
with their third goal. But the
'Birds' Jim Stuart scored his
second of the night and killed any
chance of a Calgary comeback.
The 'Birds' defence moved the
puck well and cleared the front of
the net for goalie Ron Lefebvre,
something they did not do on
Friday night.
But Lucas turned in a splendid
performance Friday to lead the
'Birds to a 5-4 win. He scored the
'Birds' first goal early in the game.
Then Blaney scored his ninth of the
year when his shot from a faceoff
deflected into the Dinos net.
Lucas added his second,
deflecting Ross Cory's shot past
Galloway into the Calgary net.
With a 3-0 lead the 'Birds appeared to sit back during the early
going in the second period. Persistent forechecking paid off for
Calgary after Lefebvre had made
several good stops.
But Lucas roared back, bumping
Hindmarch off the puck, and
setting up Blaney for his second of
the night.
Sloppy defensive play resulted in
two more Calgary goals before the
period ended.
In the final period Lucas set up
Dzus for the final 'Bird goal.
The 'Birds' Williams and Lucas
had the. opportunity to put the
game out of reach but Galloway
robbed both forwards.
Calgary brought the score to
within one and only an exceptional
save by Lefebvre prevented overtime.

Volleyballers sweep tournament
The UBC Thunderbird volleyball
team won the second of three
Canada West tournaments and
virtually assured themselves of a
berth in the National volleyball
tournament at Waterloo on
February 24 and 25.
Saturday morning in Edmonton
the 'Birds defeated the University
of Calgary Dinosaurs in three
games then went on to beat the host
Edmonton team that night 3-0.
Sunday, the 'Birds went on to
wrap up the tournament with a 3-1
win over the University of
Saskatchewan in the afternoon and
another 3-1 win over the University
of Victoria that evening. The 'Birds
are now 10-0 in Canada West play
and stand first in the western point
race with 11.25 points.
The Thunderettes also won all of
their games in Edmonton. Friday
they defeated Saskatchewan and
Calgary by 3-0 scores and Sunday
they downed Alberta and the
University of Victoria 3-1. The
standings to date in the women's
side of the Canada West tournament are first UBC, second
University of Victoria, third
Alberta, fourth Calgary and in last
place Saskatchewan.
The final tournaments for both
men  and  women  to  decide  the
western representatives in the
Canadian championships will be
held at UBC Feb. 12 and 13.
The UBC teams have such a huge
lead in the competition that if the
Thunderbirds place second in the
tournament and if the Thunderettes place third they will represent western Canada in
Waterloo. The 'Birds are the
defending Canadian champions
and the Thunderettes are the
defending Canada West champs.
The next game for both teams
are Wednesday night. The
Thunderettes play the Vancouver
Chimos while the 'Birds take on
Loyola Marymount University

The Thunderbirds will be hard
pressed to win their best three of
Tuition fees to rise
From page 1
Kenny said he will discuss fee
increases  with   the   UBC   board
today, although it is not on the
agenda.
"I will indicate there is a shortfall in the budget, and I will indicate that there will have to be an
increase," he said.
"But the board will not decide
this without careful study."
SFU administration president
Pauline Jewett will meet with the
SFU board today, and said she will
not comment on the president's
meeting until she talks with the
board.
Petch said he did not think
higher tuition fees would limit
accessibility to post-secondary
education because fees were not a
major deterrent to students.
"The main deterrent to people
from a low income background is
foregone income, and then the cost
of living. Tuition fees are the
smallest deterrent.
