Array Book delay blamed on profs
BySUEVOHANKA
Two UBC faculties delayed
ordering of more than 215 titles for
their courses until late August and
early September, senate was told
Wednesday.
Of about 6,000 titles handled by
the bookstore this year, 18 per cent
did not arrive in time for the first
week of classes.
A brief prepared by Gordon
Funt, student commerce and law
senator, showed the arts and law
faculties to be major offenders in
ordering texts late.
Funt attributes the absence of
books in courses to underestimating the number of
students   requiring   books   in   a
course and enrolment beyond
estimated numbers as additional
reasons for courses lacking texts.
Funt also proposed three
motions to senate which would
attempt to eliminate the shortage
of books.
He suggested April 1 as a
deadline for faculty to notify the
bookstore of book requirements.
Not only would this place the
blame for unavailable books
directly on faculty or the
bookstore, it would also allow the
bookstore to buy back used texts
from students if the books were to
be used the following year, he said.
Students would benefit by paying
less for used texts, Funt said.
Another motion called for annual
report to senate from the bookstore
showing the shortage or surplus of
books and a statement of faculties
which did not meet the deadline.
Funt said this would clearly
indicate the cause and party at
fault in the event of a shortage.
A third motion would give the
dean of each faculty responsibility
for prompt book ordering within
the faculty.
This motion was designed to
increase communication between
faculty and bookstore and simplify
ordering when several sections of
the same course order the same
book, he said.

WHEELBARROW CREW of from left to right, John Doka, Paul Einfeldt and Larry Gropp pose Wednesday
in front of main library while cleaning up gardens. Physical plant workers are hard at work right now getting
university ready for winter.
Funt said the bookstore is
reluctant to process section orders
until all sections have reported.
In a letter to Funt, bookstore
manager Bob Smith said "the
bookstore could comply with the
proposals without undue cost or
inconvenience."
However, discussion at senate
showed many faculty members
would be unwilling to inconvenience themselves in ensuring that students would have
books available by the first week of
classes.
Not that they weren't sympathetic, however.
"I have great sympathy with this
motion," said economics prof
Gideon Rosenbluth. "If students
don't have books they can't study
as effectively as if they have
books."
Rosenbluth also said that Funt's
analysis of the bookstore situation
is incomplete. He suggested the
entire matter be directed to the
board of governors.
Other senators cited instances
where new profs come to campus
and plan their courses and texts
during the summer and are unable
to order texts before then.
Still others dismissed an early
deadline for book orders as simply
impossible.
An analysis of this year's book
requests by faculty and department prepared by Smith shows
some faculty have been able to
order titles early, however.
According to Smith's breakdown, the school of rehabilitation
medicine, and the classical
studies, Greek and botany
departments ordered all titles
before April.
Funt decided not to ask for a vote
after discussion of the proposed
motions.
Senate chairman Walter Gage
said he would bring Funt's brief
before the board.
"I just hope my books are here
next year," said Funt.
No ballots halt
anti-pool vote
The referendum asking students
whether they favor continued
funding of the proposed aquatic
centre will not be held today as
originally planned.
Current Alma Mater Society
president Gordon Blankstein said
Wednesday the ballots could not be
prepared in time and said he intends to dispute the wording of the
referendum in students court.
Blankstein said every ballot
must have a different number
which must correspond with the
number on its stub and ballot books
must then be put together.
He pointed out that the petition to
hold the referendum was received
less than a week ago and students
do not have enough time to consider the issues at stake.
But grad rep Dave Fuller
charged that the AMS executive is
stalling on purpose and does not
want to see the referendum held.
He said a check with Vancouver
Business Systems, which prints
ballots for the AMS, showed that
ballots could be ready within two to
three days after the wording is
finalized.

Council meet mute
Fifteen student council members
showed up for council's regular
Wednesday meeting even though
current Alma Mater Society
president Gordie Blankstein had
called it off.
The meeting had originally been
cancelled for the week but when
council members pointed out to
members of the executive that the
move was unconstitutional, a
special meeting was set for today.
Council members charged
Blankstein's cancellation of the
Wednesday meeting was arbitrary
as Blankstein counter-charged that
the only "possible" item of
business was discussion of the pool
referendum — today's only item.
However Blankstein admitted
that there would have been one
other item on the agenda — a
motion to censure him for not
giving council a report of his AMS-
paid summer activities which
netted him $2,000 of student's
money.
Kenny to look at UBC 'company town'
By DOUG RUSHTON
Administration president-
designate Doug Kenny said
Wednesday he wants to take a look
at what he termed the "company
town" aspect of UBC when he
takes over from Walter Gage next
year.
"The university should be
examining what kinds of student
services the university should be
in," he said. "This applies to any
service including food services,
residences or the bookstore."
Kenny said operations such as
food  services  and   the   housing
administration "smacks of a
company town" since the
university essentially has a captive
audience.
"If it turned out that it didn't
make sense to operate all these
services you'd have to find
alternative ways of operating
them," he said.
"One of those alternatives would
be to put them out to bid."
However, Kenny said it is
probably too late for the university
to get out of the operation of
student residences.
"We're down the road  so far
there's no reversing on that one,"
he said.
Kenny stressed he won't actually
be considering the operations of
student services until he officially
becomes administration president
July 1, 1975.
"I'm not trying to get anyone
excited," he said. "The things I'll
be looking at before I officially
take office will be primarily
academic matters."
Kenny vacated his former post
as arts dean Oct. 1 leaving Robert
Will, assistant dean and economics
prof, in his place as acting dean.
Kenny said he will use the spare
time to make short trips to various
colleges and universities in Canada
and the U.S. to "look at various
problems they've faced and how
they'-ve coped with them."
He said he hopes a new arts dean
will be chosen before June 30 — the
day before he assumes his new job.
His successor will be chosen by a
selection committee made up of
students and faculty but the final
decision is up to the administration
president after senate has approved the candidates.
Since today's council meeting is
classed as a special meeting under
the constitution, it may have only
the item for which it was called on
the agenda — the pool referendum.
This means the one sure motion
will have to wait at least until next
week.
Grad rep David Fuller said
Blankstein has no authority to
cancel a meeting.
He pointed out that the AMS
constitution calls for regular

UBC Senate established election
regulations and schedules Wednesday for a new board of
governors to be formed under the
new Universities Act.
Early January is tentatively set
as the date for formation of the new
board. Composition of the new
board is outlined in the new act,
which was circulated among
Senate members.
The act provides for two student
board members to be elected by all
full-time students belonging to
either the Alma Mater Society or
the graducate student society.
Senate decided that full-time
students are undergrads taking 12
units or more course loads, all
doctoral students and all grad
students designated by their
departments as full-time students.
Nominations for students will
open Oct. 23 and close Nov. 6. The
election dates will be Dec. 4, 5 and
6. .

In Saskatchewan dispute
University workers vote today
REGINA (Staff) — Picket lines
are down today at the University of
Saskatchewan Regina and
Saskatoon campuses as a contract
vote continues among 1,700
striking mechanical and clerical
workers.
The 400 Regina and 1,300
Saskatoon members of the
University of Saskatchewan
Employees Union have been on
strike since Sept. 20, according to a
student strike support committee
spokesman.
Most classes on both campuses
continued through the strike as
union members at first voted to ask
students and professors to cross
the picket lines.
But the faculty association
agreed to allow students to miss
classes without penalty if they
signed a form saying they faced a
"conscience emergency" if they
crossed the lines.
The union is recommending
acceptance of the contract. Terms
have not been disclosed.
No-quorum censures

meetings of council once a week
whenever the university is in
session and said only council as a
whole has the right to change the
date of a council meeting.
Fuller said he was told of the
special meeting on the pool
referendum Wednesday but was
not officially notified that the
regular meeting had been cancelled.
Although the 15 members
present did not constitute a
quorum, they voted to censure
Blankstein for his non-appearance
and inaction on the pool referendum.
Nine of the members present
also signed an opec letter to
Students calling for censure of the
entire executive:
"We the undersigned feel that
the elected executive of the AMS
should be censured for not acting in
good faith towards the students
council and the student body by
attempting to cancel and failing to
attend the regular council meeting
of Oct. 9, 1974 and impeding due
constitutional process regarding
the pool referendum.
"Respectfully submitted to the
students.
"Andrew MacAuley, David
Plackett, Steve Narod, Ron Walls,
Stefan Mochnaki, Gerald
deMontigny, Jennifer Fuller,
Stewart Savard, Dave Fuller."
UBC radio, CITR, had planned to
broadcast the meeting but
equipment in the council chambers
was packed up before the meeting
ended.
Most social science classes were
reportedly shut down at both
universities, but professional
classes continued.
But when the union voted to ask
students and faculty to honor the
picket lines Friday, about one-
third of the students stayed away.
These students attended mass
rallies supporting the striking,
workers and about 3,000 of the
10,000 Saskatoon campus students
walked the picket line with the
workers.
Services were maintained for
most of the strike by administration members and student
scabs who were paid equivalent
wages to striking workers.
The scabs were condemned by
student societies at both campuses.
The workers were asking for a
"reasonable increase" over their
current minimum wage salaries.
Cafeteria workers currently
earn $380 per month, library
workers earn $410 per month and
most of the rest of the clerical
workers earn under $500 per
month. Mechanics' salaries are 10
per cent below Saskatoon city
rates, the spokesman said.
About 70 per cent of the workers
are women.
From page 1
faculty members will sit on the
boards. Faculty members on leave
of absence for one year or less will
be able to vote in faculty elections,
to be held Nov. 29.
The board will also have one
member elected by and from full-
' time university employees who are
not faculty members.
Elections for all these members
will be conducted by the registrar.
Faculty and staff elections will
be conducted by mail ballot, but
students will be elected by
balloting on campus.
The board will include UBC's
chancellor and administration
president and eight government
appointees. Two of the appointees
will come from a list- of persons
nominated by the alumni
association.
During discussion of election
procedure student education
senator Ellen Paul moved an
ammendment which would limit
student nominees to spending $75
on campaigns.
Classics head Malcom McGregor
pooh-poohed the thought of
students campaigning for board
positions.
"We (senate) will be a laughing
stock," he said. "It's inappropriate for this kind of
election to a board."
Other senate members pointed
out that senate would be a laughing
stock if it attempted to dictate
campaign procedures for students.
Paul urged McGregor to be
realistic and recognize that
students advertise by poster, all-
candidates discussions and
through The Ubyssey.
The ammendment was carried
by senate.
However, another motion
proposed by student senators to set
an earlier election date for student
board members was defeated after
registrar Jack Parnall said he
could not possibly have a complete
list of eligible voters prepared
earlier than late October.
'Ballots should
be ready'
From page 1
He said that since the council
received the final wording Thursday the ballots should have been
ready Tuesday.
The AMS constitution requires a
referendum to be held within 10
days of a petition signed by at least
500 students requiring one.
If council feels the wording is
vague it must call students court
together within 10 days to halt the
referendum.
Fuller said Blankstein has no
right to convene students court
without council's assent.
The referendum asks students
whether they favor discontinuing
student funding of the pool and
holding pool levys already
collected in trust until a decision is
made in a future referendum on
how to use the money.
A special meeting of students
council has been called for noon
today to discuss the referendum.
Blankstein said he will present a
report from the society's lawyers
detailing the legal consequences to
the society if students vote to
discontinue funding.
Blankstein said he is confident
students will favor continuing the
project.
The university first offered a $55
per month across-the-board increase when negotiations began in
May, which was upped to $60 in
July and $65 in September. The
union took a strike vote on the
September offer and 90 per cent of
the membership voted to strike.
The university made a counteroffer of $80 per month, which the
union rejected by 70 per cent.
They now are voting on an increase worked out in an intensive
two-day negotiating session.
Details have not been released.
The   union   was   also   seeking
fringe benefits including:
• holiday benefits. Workers first
asked for four weeks holiday after
10 years. They upped their demand
to four weeks after five years after
administration employees were
granted that increase.
•• day care facilities for students
and staff.
« group life insurance.
o an investigation leading to
change in job classifications.
Student support for the union,
directly constituted under the
Canadian Labor Congress, was
high at the Saskatoon campus,
where both the law and education
students voted not to scab.
But at the Regina campus
students voted to remain neutral in
the dispute. A petition, signed by
1,234 students, condemned both the
administration and the union for
the strike.
Students siging the petition
asked both to start intensive
bargaining to end the strike.
The only incident during the
strike occured on the Regina
campus over the weekend, when
student residences were left
without light and heat in zero-
degree temperatures.
Students are considering sueing
the administration for failure to
live up to the lease, which
guarantees services to the
residences.

'Liberal nationalism best for U.S.'
By RALPH MAURER
Tough American opposition to
foreign ownership guidelines in
Canada would be the greatest boon
the Canadian left has ever had, the
president of the Committee for an
Independent Canada said Wednesday.
Robert Page, who succeeded
Edmonton publisher Mel Hurtig as
national chairman of the CIC,
spoke in SUB on energy and
Canadian nationalism.
"It is in the U.S.A.'s best in
terests to accept whatever guidelines the Canadian government
sets," he said.
"If not, it could lead to an NDP
government, which would be worse
from their point of view. By accepting these guidelines they are in
effect cutting their losses."
Page also criticized the proposed
Mackenzie Valley pipeline project.
"There are grave doubts that we
could keep the Americans out once
the pipeline is built.
"The American army and the
_ CIA would take a great interest in

Peak finances key
Simon Fraser University's
student council will supply
operating funds to the student
newspaper the Peak if the paper
can prove itself "financially
responsible", news editor Ross
Powell said Wednesday.
Although council decided at a
meeting last week to deny the
weekly paper its $14,000 operating
funds, minutes of that meeting
have not yet been approved.
At a meeting Tuesday, council
voted to withhold approval of
minutes until next Tuesday. Powell
said the move came "after a lot of
discussion about the current
financial status of the Peak."
The Peak is published by Peak
Publications Society which
operates on contract with the
student council.
Council president Bob Gould said
Wednesday council voted to deny
money to the paper because the
paper has not presented a financial
statement since early April and
does not currently have a board of
directors.
To constitutionally elect a board,
the paper must advertise the
election in two consecutive issues.
Last week's council decision
killed last week's paper, but the
Peak will publish today on the
strength of about $700 in advertising revenue.
Powell said the Peak hopes to
publish again next week so board
elections can be held Oct. 18.
But Powell said the real question
is one of financial responsibility.
"It's been financial disasters one.
after another," Gould said. He
cited a $20,000 debt incurred by the
publications society after
publishing an alternate newspaper
called Terminal City Express two
years ago.
The debt is still being paid off.
Powell said an auditor has drawn
up a financial statement for the
paper.
However, because it is not an
official audit statement the Peak is
still responsible for proving the
statement a true and reasonable
indication of where the paper
stands now, he said.
Powell described the current
situation as a confrontation between the Peak and student council
treasurer John Hollis. He said
Hollis will make the decision to
approve or throw out the existing
financial statement.
Hollis was unavailable for
comment Wednesday.
"We're trying the best we can,"
said Powell.
And Gould said the council is
beginning to feel the same way.
Gould said Tuesday's motion
recognizes the hard work the Peak
is doing to clear things up.
"I think the problems are
straightening themselves out," he
said. "Things are still up in the
air."

the Canadian north. They would

they view the Panama Canal — as
being an internal concern of the
U.S."
The proposed pipeline would
transport natural gas from
Alaska's North Slope and the
Mackenzie Valley to the U.S. via a
huge 48-inch pipeline.
It would be built by Canadian
Arctic Gas, a consortium of about
two dozen petroleum corporations,
almost all of which are either
American or British.
"For Canada's $9-$10 billion
investment in the pipeline we
would get maybe 300 jobs," he
said.
Page said two other reasons for
opposing the pipeline are that it
would go over land owned by
native peoples who do not have a
treaty with the Canadian government and that it would irreparably
damage the delicate ecology of the
tundra.
Page also spoke on the James
Bay hydroelectric project in
Quebec and the international
petroleum crisis.
He said the Quebec Liberals had
two reasons for going ahead with
the James Bay project: "First, it
would result in a great deal of
electoral appeal for Robert
Bourassa.
"And second, it would result in
increased export opportunities for
Nursing
program
changed
The UBC school of nursing has
had its program changed to satisfy
the requirements for becoming a
practising registered nurse.
School head Dr. Muriel
Uprichard received word last week
from the association that UBC
student nurses will be fully
qualified to work as registered
nurses after they have completed
their second year of studies.
However the new curriculum
still leaves third- and fourth-year
nursing students operating under
the format of the old curriculum.
Until last year, UBC student
nurses could write the RN
examination after finishing third
year but were unable to register as
an RN until completion of their
fourth year in nursing.
This was the result of a RNABC
requirement that practising RNs
had to be graduates of an approved
institute of nursing and their
examination had to be approved in
B.C.
However, the new curriculum
applies only to first- and second-
year nursing students. It involves
11 months of studying in each of the
first two years and the elimination
of the first-year sciences
requirement.
Nursing Undergraduate Society
president Margaret Bacon said
Wednesday second-year nurses
qualified as RNs can work during
the summer for a wage of about
$900 per month.
However, third- and fourth-year
students may only work at the
University Hospital and earn only
$700 per month, she said.
But, Bacon said, degree holding
nurses have certain advantages
over RNs. She said they are able to
work in public health centres and
are also technically qualified to
teach nursing.
Bacon also claimed that
graduates of the nursing school
have a much more thorough understanding of their work.
Classroom studies involve a
theoretical, scientific approach to
nursing, unlike the RN who is
essentially qualified merely on a
practical basis, she said-
Quebec industries via Consolidated
Edison the American firm which
stands to gain the most from the
cheaper power the dam will
produce."
Page criticized the Trudeau
administration for its handling of
the controversy, charging they had
neglected the rights of the native
peoples of the area.
"Though the land belonged to
Quebec, the federal government
retained the rights of intervention
for the welfare of the native
peoples."
But, he said, they didn't intervene, and "totally destroyed"
the traditional way of life of the
native peoples.
He also said the real goal of the
Organization   of   Petroleum   Ex
porting Countries (OPEC) is to
gain control of the major
petroleum corporations, and is
currently buying into them on the
open market.
U.S. president Gerald Ford and
secretary of state Henry Kissinger,
he said, have indicated the U.S. is
prepared to back the major corporations in any conflict between
them and the OPEC.
"Because of this, "within a few
years the U.S. will bring in
measures to limit foreign
ownership similar to the ones we
should have here in Canada," he
said.
Page is currently on a one-year
sabbatical from Trent University
where he is a professor of history
and Canadian studies.
Draught beer word
expected next week
Current Alma Mater Society
president Gordon Blankstein said
Wednesday the AMS should know
by next week whether the Pit will
be permitted to serve draught as
well as bottled beer.
And he said like all draught beer
outlets in B.C., the Pit should make
more than 200 per cent profit.
Blankstein said the current price of
a barrel is $40 and the Pit should
take in about $114 for a barrel.
The provincial government sets
the price for all outlets at 25 cents
for nine ounces of draught beer.
Blankstein said he and AMS
secretary Dune Thomson sent a
draught beer licence application to
the Liquor Control Board about two
weeks ago.
An earlier attempt to obtain a
draught licence was foiled when
Blankstein mistakenly applied to
local authorities instead of LCB
officials in Victoria.
He said he is confident there will
not be any further bureaucratic
problems.
Blankstein said that after talks
with LCB official Vic Woodland, he
was able to size up the actual
government classification of the
Pit   and   what   type   of   added
equipment will be needed to meet
LCB regulations.
Thomson said the letter of application sent to the LCB contained
an outline of present Pit facilities,
a general philosophical outlook of
the AMS in running the Pit and a
proposal on the sort of facilities
needed to serve draft beer.
"We want to avoid the problem
of the Pit becoming an ordinary
beer parlor," he said.
Thomson said the purpose of
serving draught beer would be for
the convenience of small groups
who desire this type of beer.
The plans call for the use of a
large jug from which people could
pour out beer into individual
plastic cups, he said.
Blankstein said this will avoid
broken glasses, theft of glasses and
the necessity of hiring extra
bouncers.
Blankstein said they were also
anxious to avoid buying a glass-
washing machine. He said by using
jugs the Pit could purchase a much
smaller machine.
Cost of buying the taps and
cooling machine wiil be above
$1,000, Blankstein said.
He said the jugs will cost about $3
and the dishwasher for the jugs
should cost another $1,000.
Bomb threat false
Both the main and Sedgewick
libraries were cleared Tuesday
after the year's second, and unfounded bomb threat.
The closure followed a bomb
threat head librarian Basil Stubbs
said was different from most the
library receives.
Stubbs said the usual threat
involves an anonymous telephone
warning that a bomb has been
planted. However, Tuesday's
threat warned that a bomber was
on the way, prompting library staff
to clear the entire main library
and   Sedgewick   shortly after.
With the libraries closed from
about 1:20 p.m. to 5 p.m., many
students found themselves standing around without their coats or
books.
"Whenever there is a fire alarm
or bomb threat, students should
take as many of their personal
belongings with them as possible,"
Stubbs said.
"That way they won't be stuck
outside while the building is being
searched."
The search was conducted by the
campus patrol and turned up
nothing.
Although the search was conducted in a matter of hours, Stubbs
said it would take up to two weeks
to make a really thorough search.
"There are just too many nooks
and crannies," he said.

that Gordie didn't want to be censured but
wasn't able to present a report and so escape
censure?

"Oh blush," said Gary Coull. "That's bliss," said
Lesley Krueger. "No, blush," said Coull pointing at
Ken Dodd and Jan O'Brien , who blushed together.
"Fuck you," said Doug Rushton to no one in
particular. "What's this?" said Berton Woodward, Kini
McDonald, Brian Novak, Ralph Maurer, Joyce

space somewhere. "A hole," said Mark Buckshon, Dan
Miller, Marise Savaria, Greg Osadchuk, Pat McKitrick
and Marcus Gee. "Asshole? That's me," said the
pathetic political hack named Gordie with his hand on

"I'll take care of it."
evidence of this, despite repeated requests
for at least a sneak preview of what he was
paid $2,000 for. t
Of course, just thinking about it, there
is a way Gordie's claim and the lack of
visible report could both be true.
Gordie might not have done anything to
speak of all summer.
Ttiat is speculation, but the no-show
leaves Gordie open to just that speculation.
Then too, Gordie might have cancelled
the meeting as a stall in the debate on the
pool referendum, which calls for students to
decide once again whether to support the
pool.
Now whether you agree with Gordie or
the ad-hoc committee opposing pool
construction on this, cancelling a council
meeting is not the right and fair way to go
about things.
In fact, it's rather bush, reeking of a
small-time mayor who's pouting because
somebody took his picture down from the
council chambers.
At any rate, to cancel a council meeting,
to stop the society's business, on a personal
pique of one sort of another is just
ridiculous.
And he should be censured for that, if
not impeached.
Such a person just gets in the way of the
real business at hand.
Oh, he can say he called a special
council meeting for today, proving he is not
interested in obstruction.
But that one day's delay will put off the
pool referendum until at least after the
weekend. And the pool should be dealt with
one way or the other immediately so council
can get on with more important business.
Putting off the council also managed to
put off the censure motion for a bit longer,
because Roberts' Rules of Order says a
special council meeting can only deal with
the matter for which it was called. That's the
pool, not the censure.
So the censure motion is delayed until
at least next Wednesday — possibly long
enough to give Gordie time to prepare a
plausible report.
So come off it Gordie. Don't pout.
You're a big boy now.
Too kind
for words
Reading your recent series of
articles concerning the state of
food services on campus I am once
again astounded at your
deferential, almost kindly, attitude
toward the administration and
organization of this university.
I am not as well equipped as
Denise Chong to comment on the
economic aspects of food services,
but it amazes me that anyone can
write an article on the subject
without mentioning the outrageous
inefficiency, callous disregard for
the student body and above all the
total lack of regard for quality,
contained within the food services
administration.
While I am prepared to admit
that price is always a great cond-
sideration for many students, and
while it is by no means my intention to minimize this point, my
main argument is with the
atrocious quality of the majority of
the items which flow over the
counters of most of the cafeterias
on this campus.
My argument is not with paying
$1.15 for fish and chips: even
despite the fact that at this time
last year the price was 75 cents.
The new price is not unreasonable
for the item. Rather my dispute is
that the dish for which I am paying
this price does not by any stretch of
the imagination resemble fish and
chips.
At the beginning of the year this
newspaper described the taste of
this very article as being like
"pressed sawdust", a description
which reflects the aforementioned
generosity of The Ubyssey, and
which is an insult to anyone who
has ever worked in a sawmill and
thus realizes that sawdust is a
great deal more appetizing.
By the same token I do not object
to paying 15 cents for a cup of
coffee. However, my mood begins
to change when I realize that my 15
cents buys only one cup, and
quickly turns to disbelief when I
taste the brown liquid inside the
cup. In the real world there are
good and bad cups of coffee, just as
there are varying qualities of fish
and chips, but it requires a very
determined effort in the kitchen to
reduce these items, and many
others, to the levels at which they
exist in the cafeterias at UBC.
So now the board of governors
will make one of their patented
"studies" in which they devise an
irrelevent objective, proceed with
a totally biased inflection, reach a
pre-ordained conclusion and then
announce that the result confirms
their original expectations.
The relationship of on-campus to
off-campus food prices is largely
irrelevant, as The Ubyssey has
pointed out; it is the relative rises
in prices which the newspaper is
attempting to bring to light.
However, The Ubyssey is to blame
for reducing the question completely to the economic level.
Where is the significance of the
fact that a Brockburger and a "Big
Mac" sell at roughly the same
price when, assuming that
nutritional values are equal (that
is to say zero), one whiff of a
brockburger would be enough to
shrivel the golden arches?
Now the perceptive reader can
begin to sense a slight retreat in
the position of The Ubyssey. The
latest articles have a slightly
penitent air. Under pressure from
the administration and the weight
of the food services bureaucracy
the newspaper begins to weaken,
recantation seems imminent.
Meanwhile I shall return to my
food services diet, fighting to save
my taste buds, and searching the
greyness for a glimpse of those
ubiquitous golden arches.

I'm getting a wee bit pissed off at
the number of hot rod jockies who
inhabit this campus.
I'm referring to those children
who like to squeel their tires, honk
their horns and gun their motors in
hopes of impressing someone.
Usually after 11 p.m. Sunday to
Thursday.
My suggestion is to install
strategically placed speed bumps
outside residences (i.e. Gage) to
prevent clowns from going 0-60
m.p.h. in 10 seconds outside my
window. Also a number of radar
traps and a stricter enforcement of
quiet hours would help. I hope
someone will take heed because
lack of sleep is driving me and
numerous other people bloody
crazy.

Invite
An Open Letter
Dear Dr. Walter Gage:
Thank you for your invitation to
"a reception in honour of new
women members of faculty and
wives of new members of faculty."
Not being up-to-date on new
recipes, knitting patterns, and
child-raising techniques, however,
I was hesitant to attend.
I do have one question to ask.
Will there also be a reception in
honour of new men members of
faculty and husbands of new
members of faculty? My husband
is most eager to attend such a
gathering, and has been checking
the mail anxiously every day,
hoping to find a similar invitation.
Only yesterday, he returned
empty-handed to the living room,
and much to my dismay, began to
shout rather hysterically about
unfair sexual discrimination.
I do hope that my husband's
invitation arrives soon — his apprehension at the possibility of
being excluded from such a
gathering is not only disturbing the
tranquility of our home but is also
having a disastrous effect on his
cooking and househusbandly
chores.

We have received a number of
phone calls telling us that a student
registered in UBC's psychology
department has telephoned a local
radio station open line program
indicating that she has problems
with her vision and could not cope
with her reading assignments. She
apparently stated that she requires
large type textbooks and she found
it difficult to obtain these for her
special subject.
I would like to bring to the attention of this student or anyone
knowing of her, the special
collection and services of the
Crane Library, located in Brock
Hall. While we may not have the
specific books she requires in large
tupe, we have several types of
optical or electronic magnifiers
and other special visual aids. The
books may also exist in our
collection of recorded material or
our transcribing service could
possibly record her required texts
for her.
The purpose of the Crane
Library is to provide non-print and
special print materials to students
who have difficulty with or cannot
use ordinary print.

Friday night's little episode.
Here is number 1:
Five burly Engineers brutally
attacked, kidnapped, manhandled
and robbed a Ubyssey columnist

of refreshment they abducted the
I'byssey  employee.

out for Horseshoe Bay, a foreign

Police Chase
In their haste to reach their
destination they attracted the attention of two West Van patrol
cars. After* a furious chase at
speeds up to 60 m,p.h. the car, a
1946. Mercury,  was overtaken.
The thugs were ordered out of
the car and dragged the columnist with them. The now hysterical
newspaperman tried to break
away but was restrained by two
of the kidnappers.
The stupidity of John Law was
overwhelming as they shallowed
the story of tae Engineers that
the whole thing was a childish
prank. The criminals were merely
charged with speeding and threw
the battered body of the columnist back in the car and continued
on  their merry  way.

took the columnist away from
a boring party and treated him to

thoughtfully stayed at the party

The Engineers, realizing the
columnist's ignorance of B.C.'s

him with the topography of one.

provided the adventure by playing tag with two police cars on

Police Launch Probe!
After  Protest  Laid
BY VOU KNOW WHO
West Vancouver Municipal Police Monday launched an
investigation of Friday night's "kidnapping" of a Ubyssey
columnist.
A formal written complaint has been laid with the police
by columnist Al Fotheringham.
Fotheringham was forced to leave a party and accompany
five members of the Engineers' Undergraduate Society to
Horseshoe Bay.
His money and coat were taken from him and he was
left stranded in the bush at one o'clock Saturday morning.
Police Say Tomfoolery'
Outraged Ubyssey editors also
complained to police and to the
executive of the Engineers' Undergraduate  Society.
A Police official commented:
"We hear about people being
thrown in lily ponds and other
pranks. Until all this tomfoolery
is stopped it's hard to judge a
.situation. We're away from the
University and don't know what
goes on there.
"In this case, a speeding violation was committed and a summons
has been issued. As for anything
else . . .
1
"1 believe Chief Hailstone is
going to contact someone else by
phone over there about the matter."
The kidnap car, driven by one
of the engineers, was stopped by
police on Marine Drive for speed
ing. Fotheringham tried unsuccessfully to break away from his captors.
He told two officers of West
Vancouver police that he was being
taken against his will. His captors
said it was just a gag and told the
officers: "He (Fotheringham)
doesn't know what he's talking
aibout. He's  drunk."
Engineers Twist Arm
Fotheringham said later that in
sifdit of the police one of his uap-
tds twisted his arm.
Officers issued a speeding ticket
to the driver of the car and let him
proceed, alter confiscating a flask.
Police took names and addresses
of six students, including Fotheringham,   as   occupants   of   the  car.
The five engineers left Fotheringham   in   the   bush   near   Horse-
shoe Bay after taking his wallet
containing $12 and his suit coat.
The money ami coat were returned
Saturday morning to his residence
at 4081' West Eighth.
One of his captors thoughtfully
left him  an old jacket.
Fotheringham wandered through
the bush until he came to a house.
He awoke the occupant, Mrs. Penny
Smiley, and told her his plight She
called a taxi for him.
Capture Well Planned
The taxi driver took Fothering-;
ham home when told that he could j
get some more money there.
Witnesses describe the "kidnap-1
ping'' as well planned. Fotheringham was called out of a party at i
Stanley Park tea room on the ex-1
cuse that a "Jean or Jane" wanted ]
to see him  outside.
Five fellows, two of them wearing red sweaters, grabbed him and
after a scuffle he was forced into
a car. The car was driven downtown and one of the captors threatened that they would put Fotheringham on the midnight boat to
Victoria with a one-way ticket and
no money.
Then  they drove him  up  Holly-
bum. Ridge  on   the  threat of sending him up the ski lilt
When they found the lift closed,
they drove him to Horseshoe Buy
and  left him.
Total cost of the escapade for
Fotheringham was $21. This includes taxi fares and his tickets
to the party which he had only
attended for 10 minutes.
After Fotheringham , had been
called away from the party, Engineers' President Ron Foxall approached Fotheringham's girl friend
and told her he had been called
downtown to do a story for the
Ubyssey and WQuld lie back in half
an hour.
I Hate You, I Hate You'
He later told Miss Pat Arnold,
1884 East Thirty-eighth, that Fotheringham had been put on the boat
to Victoria.
Gary Dodwell, a friend of Fotheringham's who had come to the
party with him, was present at the
time. He later took Miss Arnold
home.
"A bunch of engineers crowded
around trying to get her to let
them take her home. She screamed
at them, "I hate you, 1 hate you,"
MV. Dodwell said.
Foxtail Monday denied any know
ledge of an organized Engineers'
plan to kidnap Fotheringham.
One of the members of the kid
napping party was with him in his
ofi'ice.at the time. He said: "We
did it and we're glad.*'

Cutup
BY RON FOXALL
Al Fotheringham is a friend
of mine. Some of the boys at
the Co-op house where Al stays
are friends of mine. Therefore,
I was not surprised when 1
received a phone call Friday
evening to come over.
It seems Al had a date. In
fact, I believe it was his first
date. That may have explained
the reason he had me called
ever to the party to spend the
evening with his girl. 1 guess
he was shy.
1 would like to think that maybe he got tired early in the evening and wanted to sleep, but
that half empty bottle of ginger
ale on the table could probably, unfold a sordid story of a
riotous drinking bout. At any
rate Al is in Arts so no further
discussion of why Al left the
party, as ten o'clock is necessary.
Duty Calls
1 didn't mind answering A1V
call for assistance, in fact the
fellows in our Engineerig faculty do it often as a sense of duty.

that  isn't on  the  song sheets).
The good men of Science

It would have been interesting to keep the date I had with

He and Susie had a terrific

The little brother was disappointed though; he was just

o'clock to take her back to the

My nurse was still waiting so
I picked her up and went to the

THE      UBYSSEY
Thursday, October 10, 1974
WINNIPEG (CUP) — A study
here shows that female faculty
members at the University of
Manitoba are being paid considerably less than their male
colleagues — a  situation  which
professors underpaid
may be violating this province's
human rights act.
This was revealed in a report by
the university's faculty association
committee on the status of women.
The report showed that in no
classification — lecturer, assistant
professor, associate professor or
full professor — is a woman
receiving the same money as her
male peer.
The majority of women faculty
members are concentrated in the
lower classifications. There are
only 12 women in the highest paid
category, that of the full professor
and their average salary is about
$2,900 less than the men.
Although there are more women
in the lower strata of the salary
structure, at no point do their
numbers approach half the
number of males in the same
category.
Though the differential is usually
less in the lower classifications, the
higher proportion of women in
these classifications creates an
average differential of about
$3,500.
If the administration does not
feel that it can deal with the salary
differential now, setting aside the
money needed to equalize the
salary differentials, and
establishing a joint committee with
UMFA to administer the monies,
UMFA intends to bring the issue to
the bargaining table.
The administration received a
copy of the report in early August.
The university president said the
matter is under consideration and
a reply to the UMFA should be
ready soon.
The faculty association believes
that most of the matters raised in
the report are already covered by
existing labor laws and that the
university has a responsibility to
conform to existing human rights,
equal pay and employment
standards legislation. The
association believes the university
must show that the salary differentials are not discriminatory.
There is an obvious sign of slow
promotion among the women
faculty. The women in each
category have more years of
service than the male counterparts. In the classification of full
professor, women average more
than six years' experience than
men.
The only exception to this occurs
in the lowest paid lecturer
category where the years of service are almost the same for either
sex.
The status of women committee
has recommended that a portion of
the university's 1974-75 budget be
set aside to equalize salaries.
The UMFA status of women
report also recommended that the
university be urged to provide
maternity leave for female faculty
members.
The report indicated their
support of the Canadian
Association of Universities
Teachers' policy regarding
maternity leave which indicates
that the maternity leave should
provide for a maximum full paid
leave of three months, and an
additional leave of another three
months in case of sickness or
disability.

Notre Dame feels strike fever
By BERTON WOODWARD
NELSON (Staff) — The long
shadow of a strike hangs over
B.C.'s only private university at a
crucial point in its history.
Negotiators for Notre Dame
University faculty and the administration are currently em.
broiled in last-minute contract
negotiations that must end this
week. Concurrently, the
Association of University and
College Employees, local 3, are
bargaining for a first contract.
The negotiations come at a time
Sa   **<^' .' ' ';.
when the future' of the university is
unclear. The .provincial government is expected to bring it under
the umbrella of the B.C. Universities Council that governs the
three other B.C. universities, but it
is also possible NDU could become
part of the regional college system.
It could also become an affiliate
of one of the other three B.C.
universities.
Premier Dave Barrett told a
meeting in Nelson Tuesday the
government will make its decision
by next Jan. 1.
Barrett also commented on the
faculty negotiations, saying that
while he wanted to stay out of the

Radiation - J, rice - 0
TOKYO (CUPI) — Boiled rice
and boron have failed to plug a leak
in the Japanese nucluer-powered
ship "Mutsu."
Cast adrift after hurricane
warnings forced the dispersal of a
protesting Japanese fishing fleet,
the $50 million ship is currently
drifting around the ocean leaking
radiation into the water.
The "Mutsu" was towed out to
sea by tugs following the
protester's dispersal and three
days  after  nuclear  testing  had

begun, the ship's reactor sprang a
radioactive leak.
Although it was operating at only
two per cent of its capacity, the
reactor was emitting radioactivity
at a higher rate than the "per-
missable level" set for operation at
100 per cent capacity.
Five hundred miles, from port
when the leak occurred, the
engineers' last resort was a mad
effort to plug the leak with 75
pounds of boiled rice mixed with
boron.
The use of the rice served only to
deplete the crew's rations — the
ship remains powerless and adrift
at the mercy of the Pacific tides.
"If the Japanese government
expected to improve the public
image of peaceful uses of nuclear
power and to dissolve the nation's
'nuclear allergy,' the recent accident has destroyed that expectation completely," says
Japan's Asahi Shimbun
newspaper.

spokesman could not be reached
for comment Wednesday.
The faculty negotiations
resumed Wednesday after a three-
month hiatus, begun when the
Faculty Association of NDU
(FANDU) negotiating committee
rejected the administration's offer
of a 10 per cent salary increase.
FANDU is asking for 23 per cent.
"A strike is probable,"
negotiating committee co-
chairman Alan Child told The
Ubyssey Wednesday.
"This is a last-ditch period of
negotiations that we're in now and
I'd be surprised if we can solve all
our problems this late in the game.
"But it's worth a try," he added.
The negotiations have a Friday
noon deadline, when both
provincial mediator Ed Sims and
FANDU's negotiator are due
elsewhere. Unless the two sides
sign a memorandum of agreement
or the administration makes a new
contract offer, a strike will follow,
Child said.
He said the FANDU leadership
would likely put almost any new
administration offer to the
membership even though the
negotiating committee did not
approve. A final decision would
thus be up to the membership.
FANDU members voted July 18
93 per cent in favor of strike action.
The union, which is certified under
the provincial labor relations
board, served strike notice on the
university Sept. 30.
It is free to call a strike as soon
as Sims hands in his mediator's
report to Labor Minister Bill King.
There are 40 full-time and nine
part-time professors at the 550-
student university.
Child said FANDU asked for a 28
per cent salary increase in a one-
year contract, when negotiations
began in March, which would give
NDU profs parity with coast
university faculty.
Parity on a number of issues is
the major theme of the
negotiations, he said.
However, the salary demand
was scaled down to 23 per cent by
June, when the union's first one-
year contract ran out. Profs last
year averaged $13,000 a year in a
$9,000-$18,000 range.
"We've already realized we're
not going to get parity this year,"
Child said.
However, FANDU is holding out
for parity on job security issues, a
factor which worries the administration which wants to keep
its position with the provincial
government flexible.
A report for the government
prepared by Patrick McTaggart-
Cowan, former president of Simon
Fraser University, said that once
the university is taken over by the
government new directions NDU
takes might mean some faculty
members would be unneeded.
The report recommends setting
up a program to transfer the prof
to another B.C. university, retrain
him, or, as a last resort, release
and give him a year's severance
pay.
"This is really what we've been
asking for, except we want it for
the transitional period as well as
afterward," Child said.
The job security issue is a key
issue that could easily alone
provoke a strike, he said. Others
include pensions — NDU currently
contributes six per cent while
FANDU wants parity with the
coast 10 per cent rate — and
teaching loads.
Currently NDU profs generally
teach 12 hours a week and are
asking for parity with the
University of Victoria's nine hours
— still above UBC's six- to nine-
hour range.
The matter of pay wasn't seen as
a contentious point, at least at first,
Child said.
"We felt this wasn't a strike
issue — it's a peripheral issue
because we felt the spirit was so
good it could be solved in minutes
once we sat down at the bargaining
table. We're not so sure now."
Edward Bodard, NDU board of
governors vice-chairman and the
administration's negotiator, said
the university wanted to negotiate
only the salary question and leave
aside the other issues, maintaining
the same contract.
He said the university wants to
ensure that its position in the eyes
of the provincial government is not
damaged, such that the government might find conditions at the
university unacceptable for a
takeover.
He said the union's demands on
job security issues might box in the
university, leaving the government
with a package it does not want.
"How do you leave anybody with
any latitude?" he said.
Until the government indicates
its plans, if any, for the college, the
administration's position is highly
uncertain, he said.
"Every time we hear a
suggestion we have to analyze
what effect itwill have on the other
parts of the university," he said.
Student interests, including the
future of their new student union
building, must be kept in mind as
well as those of the faculty, he said.
The university is saying "don't
rock the boat," Bodard said.
FANDU, however, while
agreeing that "we want the
university to continue at the very
least as a four-year, degree-
granting institution" can't bargain
for this with the university, Child
says. "That can only be accomplished through lobbying with
the government."
"We don't see 'flexibility' as any
great virtue because flexibility' as
any great virtue because flexibility
can have a bad effect on people,"
Child said. "We don't want the
university to be so flexible it can
fire half the faculty."
Notre Dame was founded and
operated for many years by the
Roman Catholic diocese of Nelson,
but is now completely funded by
student fees and government
grants.
The bishop of the diocese still sits
on the 16-member board of
governors as an ex-officio voting
member but that is the extent of
church involvement in NDU affairs.

For special Sask. force
RCMP hire Indians
OTTAWA (CUP) — The RCMP
will recruit and train special police
for Indian reserves in Saskatchewan.
The new program was agreed to
and announced this week by the
federal government and the
province of Saskatchewan.
Indian constables will form a
branch of the RCMP under the
program and they will be charged
with policing Indian reserves.
They will also undertake tasks
like preventive policing and'
community relations.
The   men   will   be   recruited,
trained  and  supervised  by  the'
RCMP and will have the support of
the force for crime prevention and
law enforcement.
They will receive the same
benefits and salaries as regular
members of the force and will be
able to advance in the regular
force if they desire by meeting
established standards.
The RCMP will relax some of its
regulations regarding height,
weight and education in their
recruitment of native people.
Creation of the special force has
been talked of for some time but
the question of financing has held
up the program.
Under the agreement with the
Saskatchewan government, the
. federal provincial cost-sharing
arrangement will be basically the
same as that which applies when
the   RCMP   provides   policing
services.
One feature of the program will
be consultation among Indian representatives,   the   province,   the
RCMP  and  the  department  of.
Indian affairs.
The creation of special Indian
police forces to police reserves has
been a demand of Canada's native
population for several years. It
was one of the major demands of
Ontario Indians who occupied a
park in Kenora earlier this summer.

MEXICO CITY (CUPI) — In the'
wake of President Gerald Ford's
admission of CIA intervention in
Chile, come more accusations of
American meddling — this time in
Mexico.
The Committee for an Open
Society in the U.S. maintains that
the University of Texas has been
microfilming military, religious,
economic and government archives in Mexico.
The group says the microfilms
are for the CIA and that this
constitutes a danger for the
economy and political stability of
the country.
The secretary of the interior in
Mexico has denied authorizing the
microfilming of archive
documents. The denial was backed
up by the director of the national
archives, Ignasio Rubio Mane, who
admitted the "University of Texas"
had sent researchers to microfilm
private archives in Nuevo Leon,
the
has
in-
Chihuahua and Coahila, for unspecified purposes."
In its denunciation of
microfilms, the committee
asked the U.S. Senate to
vestigate the matter. They say that
copies of the microfilms, after the
information has been processed by
computers, could put the Mexican
economy in the hands of the trans-
nationals, or be used for extortion.
They also added that the CIA
"frequently uses the principal
universities of the U.S. for its own
purposes, as in the case of
Michigan University, where it
organized a program to train the
political police of Vietnam."
The "International Human
Rights Front" asked the United
Nations security council to investigate the activities of the CIA
in Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Cyprus,
Mexico, Paraguay, Dominican
Republic, Uruguay and other
nations.
UBC credit union planned
The first credit union for the
UBC community is being
organized and should be operating
next May, an Alma Majter Society
representative   said "Wednesday.
Bill MacLeod, law 2, said he and
Janice Dillon, law 3, met Tuesday
with representatives from the
Canadian Union of Public Employees, the Association of
University and College Employees
and B.C. Central Credit Union to
plan the service.
MacLeod said the union will
provide normal banking services
like savings accounts and loans as
an alternative to UBC branches of
the Banks of Montreal and Commerce.
"We are a non-profit
organization (and) will have
higher interest rates and easier
personal loan approval," he said.
"We will have a lot of money for
the benefit of the campus as a
whole, instead of for business, real
estate and stocks."
Credit unions decide how to use
their capital at member meetings.
Members elect a board of directors
and a credit committee to set
policy on loans and credit.
The B.C. Central Credit union
keeps tabs on all union operations
in the province to protect money
invested and deposited by members.
AMS council voted last Tuesday
to accept in principal the idea of a
credit union. Further votes and a
change in the AMS constitution will
be necessary before the AMS can
deposit funds in the union.
Currently, the AMS keeps its
cash reserves in chartered banks.

Film studies
Soviet sex
In case you haven't noticed,
sexual liberation is all around us.
But that isn't new — back in
1927, a director named Roon
made a film dealing with the
politics of sexual liberation in the
Soviet Union.
The film. Bed and Sofa, was
one of the most controversial
films to come out of the
post-revolutionary period.
It explores the relationship
among a young worker, his wife
and his best friend in an attempt
to find out what happens before

up with social change.

To help Canadian natives
U.S. Indians ready
OTTAWA (CUP) — U.S. Indians
are ready to cross the border to
support Canadian natives occupying a building in Ottawa in the
event of further violence against
them, a spokesman says.
John Trudel, national chairman
of the American Indian Movement,
says members clashed with RCMP
and Canadian soldiers during the
opening of Parliament.
Trudel, who witnessed the
confrontation, said he was
returning to AIM headquarters in
St. Paul Minnesota to report on the
Canadian situation to his
organization.
"If there is a repeat of the
violence done to my brothers on
Monday, AIM will send people up
here and the border will not stop
us. The Indian people are ready to
help their brothers now," he
warned.
A number of AIM members have
been in and out "not directing but
observing" the Native People's
Caravan since it left Vancouver
two weeks ago, he said.
AIM is committed to aiding the
caravan because of the assistance
Canadian natives gave the
movement during its occupation of
Wounded Knee, South Dakota last
year.
Meanwhile in Toronto, Ontario
Solicitor-General Kerr told a local
group of Indians that his department is consulting two federal
ministries "to get full information" about the police battle
with members of the Caravan.
He met with six representatives
of the Toronto chapter of the
American Indian Movememt and
told them he could not interfere
with charges of assault and obstruction against seven Indians
who took part in the demonstration.
"We indicated the law should
take its course and we would not
interfere," Kerr said, repeating
the decision announced by Attorny
General Robert Welch following a
cabinet meeting Wednesday.
"But if we find the ranks of the
Indian demonstrators were infiltrated by a Marxist-Leninist
group or some others and this was
the reason for the trouble this may
go well for those charged with the
crimes," Kerr added.
Federal Solicitor-General
Warren   Allmand   and   RCMP
superintendent Marcel Sauve, the
officer who called out the riot
squad, said in Ottawa they would
immediately investigate any
charges of brutality to native
people during the demonstration.
However Allmand denied
charges by a national civil liberties
group of brutality, saying the
group had no respect for truth and
hranding the charges "horse
manure."
The Canadian Federation of Civil
Liberties and Human Rights
Associations, a group with 16 civil
rights affiliates across Canada,
called for a public inquiry into the
violence to be conducted independent of the RCMP.
And Clive Linkletter, vice-
president of the National Indian
Brotherhood said an inquiry should
be made by no less than a Supreme
Court judge. He also called for the
inquiry to be made independent of
the Solicitor-General's office.
In a statement released by the
civil liberties group president, Don
Whiteside, who was himself struck
by police clubs, the federation said
it had evidence collected by
members of the Civil Liberties
Association in Ottawa "which
indicates that the use of the RCMP
special riot squad was unnecessary."
"The federation hesitates to
suggest that the RCMP
discriminates against native
people but it is open to question
why the riot squad, which has been
in existence since 1967, was not
used in previous demonstrations
which were clearly more violent
and out of control."
It said the press condoned at
least by implication the amount of
violence used by the riot squad.
"It seems strange that although
thousands of photographs were
taken during the demonstration by
the press apparently none were
taken when the RCMP clubbed
obviously unarmed people, some
who were already on the ground
trying to protect their heads."
Whiteside said he was standing
among the demonstrators when he
saw an elderly women pushed to
the ground by a baton-wielding
RCMP officer. The woman,
Charlotte McEwan said she saw
the riot squad coming and was
trying to sit down to get out of their
Drunk treatment
in state of flux
Government alcoholism treatment policy is in "a state of flux"
because of its current
reorganization drive, UBC
psychology prof John Pinel said
Wednesday.
"The most effective tool against
alcoholism is education," Pinel
said. "Government programs
must build feedback into their
treatment centres."
Pinel returned from Ottawa
Wednesday after attending a
meeting of alcoholism experts
sponsored by the non-medical use
of drugs directorate.
The experts discussed the
standardization of techniques in
evaluating alcoholic treatment
centres.
One of the projects Pinel is
currently working on is the setting
up of a program to evaluate
alcoholic treatment centres and
the methods of therapy they use.
Many clinic workers have been
"shooting baskets with their eyes
shut," Pinel said.
"When these people (in the
clinics) see an alcoholic who has
stopped drinking for two weeks,
way when the RCMP officer
pushed her down.
He said missies were thrown at
police only after the demonstrators
were violently pushed down the
steps in front of the Parliament
Buildings, a charge police deny.
The report concludes that unless
public pressure is brought to bear
the RCMP will continue to act in an
aggressive manner toward native
people who will, in turn, become
increasingly frustrated and
retaliate with violence.
Allmand, who is a member of one
of the civil liberties groups
associated with the federation,
said the police showed restraint as
they moved through the demon-
stcators. He said they only started
moving demonstrators out after
RCMP officers were attacked.
He also expressed anger over
references in the statement to
racial discriminations.
PANGO-PANGO (UNS) —
Forces of the invading Amazing
But False insurgents were driven
back from the capital of this tiny
island kingdom late Wednesday.
Armed only with a blank page
and puzzled grin, the ABF forces
were utterly routed in an evening
battle with the island's ruling
forces.
"But it's the latest in utter
sophistication," muttered the
nublie young leader, known as the
"Gee Whiz Kid" to his few
followers. "All our equipment is.
Urp.1'
A grin was seen to emit from the
backroom of the Pangoians camp,
where midnight oil and a good deal
of ingenuity utterly demolished the
weapon.
The Pangoians were known to
the preparing for the next attack,
expected to come in the form of
shriveled olives and a few
American-made frisbees.

they figure it is because of their
techniques.
"Many of these successes may
be because of the placebo effect."
"Most people don't even
recognize alcohol as a drug," he
said. "The man on the street will
condemn drugs but when asked if
he drinks he will say yes."
Pinel said proper evaluation of
treatment techniques is the way to
decide which of them are truly
effective.
He has been conducting research
for the last two years into which
drugs and medical treatments may
make patients more susceptible to
alcohol withdrawal seizures.
Pinel recently received a $15,000
grant from the federal health and
welfare department to carry on his
work.
The goal of his research is to
eliminate treatments  and  drugs 2
which   may   induce   withdrawal
seizures   in  patients   in   alcohol
clinics and treatment centres.
"Most research is pure research
but this has a practical application," he said. "It is easier to
see where you are going, you can
see your objective."
