Vol. L, No. 34
Hare's leaving
bares real UBC
Editor, The Ubyssey
President Hare's resignation was predictable, and predicted by The
Ubyssey, for the simple reason that he is a sick man and incapable of
standing up to the pressures of his job.
The problems of the UBC multiversity incubating the generally rebellious atmosphere on campus last term, and the role Hare played as president
during the crisis, in contradiction to his personal temperament and beliefs,  caused his
resignation in the end. m      ^
The role Hare played in the crisis, to-     "   ?-"**?" '    ;,-~.*-~».v7.x  "**
gether with other pressures on him of finding a direction for the university, should be
examined to determine a clear understanding  of why he decided  to  resign, and  to
attempt to find what the future holds for
the university and higher education in B.C.
Hare's role last term was clearly one
of developing a cult of personality to channel
the generated dissent into administration
Hare, brought back to campus at the
height of unrest, put himself forward as the
friend of the students within the administration, battling with senate for more student
decision-making power, ready at all times to
meet with students and discuss their problems.
~* It seems obvious that he was doing this
partially in good faith, being genuinely concerned with helping students solve their
problems.        /
Because of this policy, he came under
heavy criticism from section of the administration, faculty, the provincial government,
and the general public, which helped enhance
his image of the friend, sincere father figure
battling the ogres.

Tuesday, January 14, 1969
It may very well be that the modern university
is becoming an ungovernable institution. In the
past UBC could count on its constituent members
having a certain consensus on what higher education was all about and how administration, faculty
and students could relate to one another. But UBC
is a drastically transformed institution from what
began in   1913.
At 45 Frank Wesbrook was a president of a
university that had neither campus, faculty, students or board of governors. He had been picked
for the top job from the head of the University of
Minnesota medical department by the B.C. minister
of education.
Wesbrook built a university under the thumb
of the president and departments and faculties had
negligible autonomy. The first student year book
in 1916 described him thus: "Despite his scholarly
record he impresses one as a keen business man,
rather than as the traditional type of college president."
With the start of the first world war the university had seen its financing disappear and first
classes began in the huts in the Fairview section
of Vancouver.
Wesbrook died in office
Wesbrook ded in office in October 1918 after
five years as president.
Leonard Klinck, 42, head of the agriculture
faculty, was the next president and he loosened the
administrative reigns. For some time his own faculty
had no students but a fat research budget, though
he did teach some arts students.
"The larger part of money ever received as a
gift by the university should be spent on university
expansion,"   he   said.
He brought UBC to Point Grey in 1925 after
strong pressure was put on the government. J. V.
Clyne, now board chairman of MacMillan-Bloedel,
was then a leader of the student campaign.
With the depression, the UBC budget was
slashed in half to $250,000. Klinck, with the support of the Board, tried to unload the bulk of the
cutback   on   faculties   other   than   agriculture.   The
Senate passed a vote of non-confidence in Klinck
and suggested that agriculture be re-organized as
a mere department of the engineering faculty. Students, alumni and the public backed the Senate
and the AMS following a campaign with seven
demands and a deadline that was not met, all but
censured Klinck.
A judicial inquiry stepped in and gave the
Senate support. From then on the Senate could
select three of the nine board members and the
other six were appointed by the provincial government.
Businessmen saved Klinck's neck
Klinck's neck was saved by a private report of
five businessmen that suggested the university be
closed for the duration of the depression. Students
and faculty were running so hard for cover that
Klinck kept his job. The agriculture budget was
slashed to a third and the university made it through
the depression though long grass grew on the malls
for lack of money to cut it.
There were only a few student radicals in those
days and their campaigns were devoted to stopping
the fraternities and ending trade with Japan on its
march into China. One, a scion of a prominent Victoria family was killed fighting Franco in Spain and
another today occupies an office in the top echelons
of a major forestry company.
In 1944 Klinck was replaced by Norman Mackenzie, 50, then president of the University of New
Brunswick. This lawyer-historian presided over the
transformation of UBC from a school for the children of UBC's upper classes to an institution of
mass education for the off-spring of the greatly expanded middle classes.
He was concerned with the human values of
the university . . . "Universities exist for the students." His first years were spent running looking
for financing and housing for the returning armed
forces. Though he observed that over a hundred
committees helped implement or plan the affairs
of the university, effective power rested in his
hands. He ran everything.
UBC was still small enough that he could and
did maintain a close if paternalistic relationship with
the students of the unversity.

reform, says Armstrong
In 1962 Mackenzie was shoved out and replaced by a much younger man, John Macdonald,
44, who had been head of a Harvard dental research
Macdonald was the professional manager. He
delegated much power to the level of the faculty
heads where it remains. He set out priorities and.
did considerable planning. His proposed system of
universities and junior colleges had much of its
inspiration from the similar higher educational system that Clark Kerr organized in California a few
years earlier. It is also these junior colleges that
are the principle battlegrounds today.
During Macdonald's term the face of the UBC
campus was transformed with numerous new buildings, but his relations with students were terrible
at least until the back-Mac campaign based on his
plans. He was not a gregarious man and preferred
to let underlings worry about students. He only
stopped a faculty demand for increased participation
in university government with a large salary increase. His relationships with students were too
little and too late. Three years after he arrived he
made his first address to students and they were
usually of the lecture variety. A system of advisory
committees failed for lack of power and participation.
He left in 1966 disillusioned by lack of support
for his plans from Victoria.
Kenneth Hare came — "The Pacific Coast is
where the action is."
'Pacitic Coast — where action is'
The institution that Hare inherited was not quite
an education institute. The demands of society had
levelled the ivory towers but failed to replace them
with a system that could educate large numbers in
a human fashion. Faculty were pre-occupied with
research, for that was where careers were built in a

In a separate letter to Dean

Alma Mater Society president Dave Zirnhelt said the
resignation is tragic.
"This says something about
the state of the universities in
this province," said Zirnhelt.
"Dr. Hare's temperament is
not up to the job as it is now.
If the universities are to be
suitable people like him should
be able to survive."
Zirnhelt said the provincial
government was probably involved and he personally
doubted  that  they  are going
under way between the students and the administrations.
Zirnhelt called for a committee of four faculty, four students, and four members of the
board of governors to select
a new president.
Armstrong said he personally feels students should be rep-

the university when a man
like Hare just can't take it."
George Haddow, Eng. 4

about Hare, the only visible

of holidays. Maybe we'll get
someone here who'll do something."

"I hope they don't put Dean
Gage in his place."
Presidential power,
or why Hare quit
The powers of the president of this university are what he can make of them. The
influence he exercises over the direction of the
university rests more on his own powers of
persuasion and political acumen then they do
on any formal powers as set out in the Universities Act.
As president he is a member of the Board
of Governors but his vote is only one of eleven.
The Board holds him responsible for any actions he carries out as chief executive officer
for academic affairs in the universty. He must
submit an annual report to them every year.
And of course the board hires him and can fire
him if necessary. On this top administrative
level he is something less than a major figure
simply because of the restraints on his formal
President has no real power
He has the power of chairman of the senate
and thus can influence its direction. But here
he cannot discipline those who refuse to follow his policies since substantial numbers of
the senators are appointed by the provincial
government, elected by convocation or elected
by the various faculties.
Buried deep in the Universities Act we find
that the president is a member of each faculty
and can officially influence its hiring, firing
and promotional policies. In practice the faculties have taken over their own affairs and
effectively shape their own futures.
Past presidents have effectively shaped the
office of the presidency into a real power base.
For nearly a generation Norman MacKenzie
accumulated power to the presidency by being
a very political figure. Dissidents would be
brought into his office and would submit themselves to his folksy charm and would leave
less angry and convinced that Mackenzie
would be looking after their problems.
Personal influence of past presidents
Mackenzie also presided over much of the
growth of UBC following the war and his
ability to dig up housing and attract faculty
added to his prestige. He also had the help of
assistant presidents starting in 1947. At about
the same time Walter Gage became Dean of
Administrative and Interfaculty Affairs and
his influence over UBC began.
Another important figure at that time was
the head of the Physics Department, Gordon
Shrum, who had built that department into
one of the most important in North America
following World War II.
John Macdonald was virtually chosen president by the faculty of UBC after he impressed
them with his ideas at an audience. But faculty
soon became disenchanted with Macdonald be
cause they felt he was spending too much time
away from campus and he made a monumental
political gaff in 1965 when he labelled their
demands for uniform salary increases and
more participation as 'academic trade unionism.'
Faculties are introspective
Faculties have become increasingly introspective in the past few years; more concerned
with their own hiring and salary and research
grants and less willing to take a broader view
of the university as a whole.
With the continuing financial crisis and
over-strained facilites there was a greater feeing that the university as a concrete entity was
breaking down into a host of departments and
faculties and it was only a question of everybody for himself.
The long time that elapsed between the
resignation of Macdonald and Hare taking
office effectively diffused the president's power
even more. Important figures like Armstrong
of engineering and Gage were the formal
leaders of the community during the inter reg-
num but it really amounted to only a formal
recognition of their power as it had come
to them over the years at UBC. By working
long hours and being involved in the countless duties they effectively monopolized the
power centres of the university. Nothing could
be done unless it passed through their offices
and those of the other faculty and departmental heads of the university.
Hare lacked stamina to do fob
Hare apparently could not win the university community to a vision of what university
education is all . about and he lacked the
stamina or political abilities to slowly build
a power base for the presidency in a university
radically different from that which his predecessors knew.
At this point in UBC's history, the presidency is not an impossible job; it just seems
that way. For a man outside UBC to take the
job he would almost certainly have to construct a vision of what UBC could be and be
eloquent enough to sell it to students, faculty
and administration alike.
He would most certainly have to be sincere
since students in this province have seen too
many presidents sell out to their boards.
SFU's McTaggart-Cowan during the dispute
over the five teaching assistants, or Strand who
failed because he couldn't get the Senate to
move fast enough and instead retreated behind
the police to a defense of his career.
Perhaps the only course open is to appoint
either Gage or Armstrong and wait for new
developments as UBC and the universities of
North America decide what they are going to
Student-faculty group
falling flat on its back
A student - faculty commttee on university
reform is falling flat for lack of support.
The committee was set up following the
teach-in last October to work out concrete proposals for university reform.
Political science professor B. C. Parekh,
one of the committee organizers, said the problem lay in students not having enough time as
well as "faculty lethargy and lack of interest."
Five study groups were formed from the 45
student and seven faculty volunteers. Each is
discussing a different facet of university reform.
"Hopefully each of these groups could come
up with a list of proposals . . ." Parekh said.
All the groups would then meet together and
work out a general list of proposals.
These proposals could then be published in
The Ubyssey and UBC Reports and eventually
be submitted to the senate, he said.
But students have been dropping out of the
small groups from lack of time.
One of the five group dwindled from 10
members to two students and a faculty member.
Parekh is hoping more students will join
his committee, especially more from outside
the arts faculty.
Anyone interested, faculty or student, is invited to get in contact with Parekh or Professor Martin Levin of the Political Science
department. Page 4

Union will replace BCAS;
wants to talk to Bennett
The British Columbia Union of Students was
formed Sunday here by the student leaders of
eight provincial post-secondary institutions.
Those institutions represented were UBC,
University of Victoria, Simon Fraser University, Vancouver City College, British Columbia
Institute of Technology, Selkirk Junior College,
Notre Dame University and Capilano College.
BCUS is seen by Alma Mater Society president Dave Zirnhelt as 'a federation of student
councils to put forth a united front to the public and the provincial government.
Zirnhelt and other members of BCUS feel
that the new organization will supplant and replace the B.C. Association of Students in the
BCAS was formed in 1966-67. Its membership consists of all secondary and post-secondary students in B.C.
They hope to form a lobby in Victoria to
both inform MLA's about the problems of higher education and pressure for change.
Brian Johncox, student president of BCIT
said BCUS will be a 'more forceful group*
than BCAS, even though it is smaller.
Frank Flynn, former president of BCAS,
said "It all sounds like a pile of bullshit to me."
Several delegates to the meeting stated
at one point that as they had done nothing they
should at least get a coherent press release out
so as to convince students something had been

Zirnhelt said Monday if Bennett does not

December, but the contract includes a provision to terminate construction after $1 million
has been spent if the university can't find the
money to finish it.
This means the addition could sit as an unfinished shell until the university resolves its
funds crisis.
The addition will contain offices and labs
for the biological sciences and the Institute of
Fisheries and Oceanography.
Also under construction now at UBC is a

are also planned for the library.

Zirnhelt said today that although the Canadian Union of Students fulfils a useful purpose
it should no longer think of itself as the vanguard of the  student movement.
CUS should rather confine its activities to
problems of education on a federal level, he
said, and UBC's contribution be cut to 40 cents
per student.
He said BCUS is counting on a budgetjOf
$4,000 to carry it until September. Zirnhelt
will ask students' council for a grant of almost
10 cents per student as UBC's share.
Another meeting will be held at UBC Feb.

Zirnhelt is temporary chairman of the organization.
Ruth resigns,
'AMS irrelevant'
-Alma Mater Society internal affairs officer
Ruth Dworkin, the last of three radicals elected
to the AMS executive last spring, resigned Friday.
Miss Dworkin's resignation, submitted to
council Monday night, was precipitated by what
she termed the 'red tape' of the AMIS and the
impotence of her position.
"I look back to last January, and see how
politically naive I was to think I could accomplish something with the AMS," she said. "This
past year has demonstrated time and time
again the futility of trying to change the system
from within." *
Miss Dworkin said she wrote out a resignation in October but did not hand it in.
She cited the failure of the AMS brief, Fair
Weather or Foul, to achieve meaningful reform,
as one reason for her resignation.
She also said she has been the victim of
political harassment by ROMP in the past two
weeks, because of her involvement in November's Simon Fraser University sit-ins, and said
her personal commitment was becoming increasingly oriented toward society as a whole
rather than the university.
"I sit here faced with the possibility of five
years in jail for occupying a building, and I'm
expected to be concerned about making posters
for a referendum; I see scientists getting medals
for advances in biological warfare, and I'm
supposed to attend council meetings," she said.
"It's utterly inconceivable for me to be
involved in the irrelevance of the AMS."

Arts student screams
over learning thing
Third-year arts student Audrey O'Visual screamed with glee
Wednesday after suffering a vivid learning experience during
a lecture.
Audrey described her experience as "holy cow."
She said she had suddenly been able to link what was
being discussed in class with her personal problems.
"I've been all tied up in metaphysical metaphorphises in
my spare time lately and when we were talking about the
existence of God in philosophy today, like wow," she said.
She explained that suddenly classroom discussions were coinciding with her internal dialoguing.
"I can see how ths sort of thing could really mess up my
study schedule," she pointed out disappointedly.
Observers say Audrey's experience, described by some as
"real education", was reported by several students last term,
usually outside the classroom.
She said he'd read about 'the ideal teacher-learner ideological juxtaposition during classroom communication processes"

New president will reflect real UBC
(From Page 1)
Last fall he vigorously denied all rumors that he
was going to resign—this father figure would be
here for many years to come, using the powers of
his office to give students more control over the
decision-making processes, through the channels he
was developing.
But with his resignation, most of his work goes
down the drain, and we again have Dean Gage as
acting  president.
Yet all the time he was play-acting—he knew he
was going to resign, kicking his student lieutenants,
like Dave Zirnhelt, in the head.
Obviously university presidents don't decide to
resign and announce their resignations on the spur
of the moment—they make their decision, wait a
while to ensure in their mind that it is the right
one, then convey their decision to the board of
governors and other administration officials in a
series of meetings.
This is a process of several months at least. So.
all the time Hare was denying his imminent resignation and acting as the students' friend, he knew
what he eventually was going to do.
There were, all this time, pressures from the
upper regions of the university and government
community against Hare's ideas for university development and style of dealing with 'radical' students, perhaps even pressures to 'ask him to resign'.
Hints oi outside pressures
There are hints of this in his letter of resignation
to Dean Gage: "To succeed in the job ... he must
also be able to call on the resources needed to meet
the university's inescapable responsibilities, and he
must be able to give his colleagues some assurance
there is light at the end of the tunneL
"Lacking these things, I ran myself into the
ground with anxiety and fatigue.
"The problem is that I see the difficulties of the
university with stark clarity, and believe them to
demand immediate solution; yet there are no resources available to the president even to mitigate
them, let alone solve them."
These statements have a myriad of meanings,
none of which are clearly spelled out. This fact
alone indicates Hare either does not have a clear
view of himself on the direction which he would
like the university to go, or, if he does, he refuses
to put the finger on why his policies are being
Hare admits he was unable to give his colleagues
assurances that there is 'light at the end of the
Either his, and the university's plans, were being  frustrated  by  some  unknown  powers,   or  the
light that Hare wanted to see at the end of the
tunnel was not the light his colleagues wanted to see.
Obviously Hare was frustrated by the fact that
the provincial government won't come through with
the money Hare thinks necessary to carry out his
and the senate/administration's university plan (as
yet unknown).
If Hare and the administration have some plans,
why not use the moment of his resignation to put
the 'blame' where it belongs, i.e. the provincial
government, at the same time pointing out why
and where the money is needed.
MacDonald pushed for a plan
Again, Hare is either unable to do this, for lack
of plan, or unwilling to rock the boat and jeopardize
his future by bringing fights between the government
and university arms of the state out into the open.
Former president John MacDonald at least left the
legacy of a province-wide university plan, attacking
the government and trying to prod some action,
which was only sketchily implemented.
The problem remains of what is the university
to be, and that is something which cannot be solved
by either the liberal needs-of-the-corporate-state-
oriented administrators like Clark Kerr and Macdonald and possibly Hare, or by the conservative
and discipline-oriented academics of the old type.
Most universities, like most other institutions in
this society, must grow or improve in order to be
deemed 'successful'.
Dr. MacDonald had plans for the university—
to make B.C.'s higher education system a model of
the highly complex, industry-integrated, prestige,
University of California-type monolith, producing
myriads of highly-trained technicians of all kinds to
serve the needs of modern industry.
Arts university only other choice
The only other type of university conceivable
these days would be a quasi-art-for-arts-sake university devoted to the development of disciplines in
the arts. This type of institution is not looked upon
with favor, especially by hard-nosed businesslike
MacDonald asked for the first type of -university
to be set up, and it wasn't. Should Hare repeat the
request? If not. what is the future of higher education in B.C.?
Obviously the California-type university system
is not suited to B.C., for the simple reason that
B.C.'s economic needs do not require the trained
technicians of a fully-developed secondary-industry
B.C.'s economy is based on exporting semifinished raw materials. We need a relatively small
number of forestry technicians, engineers, and professional people.
We need larger quantities of office personnel,
from executives on down, who need partial training
in business and the arts.
We also need institutions which will act as post-
secondary schoolrooms to keep growing numbers of  -
students off the labor market. The quality of education in these institutions doesn't matter too much.
This is what you have now, and this is what the
provincial government wants, and is willing to spend
a minimal amount of money on.
Change is for idealists
So the whole idea of major change in the university is idealistic under present circumstances, and
the type of administrator that is needed is not one
who hopes for new and greater development and
innovation, and cultivates this idea among the students, but a strong-willed, firm manager who will 4
keep the ship running and deal harshly with dissent.
In other words, a super-school principal.
Hare obviously is not personally ruthless enough
for the job, nor did he fully understand before he
came what UBC was like and how it should be run.
The next president will undoubtedly be a colorless, but decisive conservative administrator. This
is what the provincial government wants and needs
for the university.
Although UBC under present conditions can't be
anything else than what it is now, the students
clearly are dissatisfied with what they have.
The ship is sinking
When Hare says 'I am not leaving you with a
sinking ship', he is wrong—for the ship IS sinking,
and it is going to take some ruthless patching (i.e. "
crack-down on trouble-makers) to keep it afloat.
The beginnings of this are obvious by the sad
picture being painted in the squalid downtown press
of honest, dedicated father-figure Hare being driven
over the edge by attacks by destructive radicals bent    *
on destroying the university.
When  the  students, Hare  gone  and  unable  to
talk them to impotency, grow increasingly militant,
this will be painted as anarchic destructive radical- .
ism   and   the   most  repressive   expulsion  measures
justified as necessary.
So the battle lines are being drawn. In the whole
business Hare is the dissipated pawn, either
forced out because he could not do the job properly,
or resigning because he didn't understand the job.
But he was still willing to play a certain part of
the game of misleading the students, which shows
that no matter what leind of man occupies the president's chair, his basic allegiance is to the controling
powers. <-

JANUARY 14, 1969
Editor,   The   Ubyssey,   Sir:
The University of Saskatchewan's board of governors
has refused to continue to collect student union fees. Their
motives are reprehensible to
say the least. No one, however,
seems concerned with the
reasons why the administration collects fees in the first
Could it be that:
1) Most students don't want
student union and wouldn't
support it if given the chance?
2) The student union can't
trust any of its members or
executive to do the job honestly themselves?
I suspect it's a mixture of
the two. In either case the collection of fees by the administration is a form of paternalism
which should be abolished.
The events at the University
of Saskatchewan are a step in
the right direction even if for
the wrong reasons.
Why must I be told to join
the union?
Who needs a student union
grad   studies
Cut courses!
Editor, The Ubyssey, Sir:
At one time it was completely possible for
students to do "nothing'' all term, and then
"cram" the last two weeks and pass all their
courses with reputable marks. This is becoming, more and more, a passe state of affairs.
Today, the administration requires in most
upper year courses, two or three papers per
term, as well as, in some courses, a term exam.
This policy shift presents to the student
today the increasing dilemna of trying to optimize or minimize the allocation of his time to
his electives in his upper years, such that he
will have the additional time during the term,
to satisfactorily complete the term paper or
papers that his professors demand from him or
her in each of their courses.
Many changes are being sought after at
UBC today, some meaningful, some symbolic,
but a very meaningful improvement in the
academic curriculum of the less professional
faculties of this campus, would be some serious
considerations towards altering the course curriculum to suit the student's needs — and his
most basic need at the moment is to be allowed
the necessary time, that is indeed essential, to
carry out the research, organization, and preparation necessary for an adequate term paper.
We need at UBC a vast reorganization of the
course program in the faculty of arts. The
faculty and administration have altered the
content of many courses; why not. the next
logical step — alter the program requirements
in  the faculty or department itself ?
I believe that by the end of second year,
the "broadening" of a student's education
should be finished with, the "weed-out" courses
should be finished with, allowing the student
in his final two years to concentrate on three
year courses per year, with possibly one of
those subjects being a voluntary elective if the
student so desires.
Otherwise, the student can choose to take
all six subjects in the final two years, dealing
entirely with his elected field of study, accredited at five units each, for a graduating total
of 60 units as is the case today. This arrangement would allow the student, under the present "paper" oriented system, to have the necessary time to devote to his field of study,
rather than as it is today, having a disproportionate amount of his time spent on interesting,
but potentially time-consuming "electives".
A late payment fee of $20.00 additional to all other fees
will be assessed after January 15, 1969, this fee will be
increased to $30.00 after January 31, 1969.
If fees are not paid in full by February 14, 1969,
the registration of students concerned will be cancelled and they will be excluded from classes.
If a student whose registration has been cancelled for nonpayment of fees applies for reinstatement and his application
is approved by the Registrar, he will be required to pay a
reinstatement fee of $10.00, the late fee of $30.00, and
all other outstanding fees before he is permitted fo resume

Sometime administration president Kenneth Hare
has returned the post to Dean Walter Gage.
Appointed in June, 1967, Hare has assumed his
role as president for only the last seven months, with
a month long leave of absence in October.
His accomplishments have been few.
Hare's views on the university were first expressed to the students of UBC in a news story in a
September, 1967 issue of The Ubyssey.
A university is an open system, it
interacts with society at every level
"A university is an open system or it isn't a university at all. It interacts with society at every level,
I think," he said.
"Clearly, I believe in the maximum possible de.
gree of freedom. I think there is a positive benefit
to be had from a lack of control," he said.
In November, 1967, The Ubyssey carred a four
page interview with the president, in which he expressed his dislike for exams, too many lectures, and
university  administrations.
"The administration is only a necessary evil, I
mean, a university is about intellectual things. It has
to be run, it's a machine, it somehow has to go, you
have to make sure the ashtrays are emptied."
Hare published in 1968 a book '"On University
Freedom in the Canadian Context."
The Financial Post had printed a digest of two
talks by Hare on university freedom in which he
expressed his hope that freedom could be maintained
even though the universities received large sums of
money from the government.
Hare has shown a great concern for the student
cause. He cancelled a scheduled vacation to Australia
to try to head off student unrest.
In September, he announced partial support for
student activists to a meeting of a Vancouver service
In response to the AMS Fair Weather or Foul
brief, Hare asked to meet with student councillors to
discuss the future of the university.
Some student councillors, however, announced
they would not meet with him although the council
had voted to accept the invitation.
Hare did not attend the important AMS-senate
meeting in September because of an illness which
two weeks later forced him to take a leave of absence
to London.
The leave of absence prompted speculation in
The Ubyssey that Hare had already resigned or been
The faculty club occupation forced his return
to end speculation that his absence was caused by
crises between: him and the board of governors.
Along with AMS president Dave Zirnhelt, he
endorsed the teach-in proposed at a mass meeting
of 50*00 students called, as a result of the sit-in.
In a letter addressed to the academic community
Hare and Zirnhelt called for co-operation of all its
members to use the teach-in to "contribute to the
University's understanding of itself, its nature and
its relationship to society.''
After the teach-in, Hare said he would favor a
"teach-in week" if it dealt with more than just
university problems.
University people tend to get
too damned introspective
"University people tend to get too damned introspective and start to think the university is all that
matters," he said.
Hare backed an AMS proposal to the UBC senate
to hold a joint AMS-senate conference to discuss the
Fair Weather or Foul brief.
The proposal suggested that AMS and senate ad
hoc committees would act as a single committee with
equal voting rights, and make recommendations to
both the senate and student council.
Hare said, "All universities are in a time of crisis
and I am completely on the side of the students."
Senate, nevertheless, defeated the proposal.
One of the things which it is hoped will be retained by Hare's successor, if one can be found, is
the  president's   advisory   committee   on university
Hare initiates president's advisory
committee, opens door to students
In mid-November, Hare opened the committee to
students, eliciting an enthusiastic response from AMS
president Zirnhelt.
At the end of November, Hare called on students
to help carry the message of the universities' problems to the public.
At a news conference called to explain the shortage of money for the universities, Hare said "I ask
the people of this province to wake up to the situation
we are in.
"Students are getting a bad press at the present
time and there's another side of the story that hasn't
been told. There's a grim reality behind the smokescreen of noise."
Hare suggested at this time there was a possibility UBC would be forced to restrict its enrollment. -
He related the fear of student unrest to the problem of overcrowding.
Students demonstrated their respect for Hare at
a debate on the question of enrolment restrictions,
and in his letter of resignation, Hare said he "identified" with the student cause.
As for Hare's future identifications with students,
he plans to return to teaching and researching geography and meteorology at another university.

Are you a student who cares?
There is a general meeting
Thursday noon in the gym and
it concerns one of the largest
changes in student affairs in
the last ten years.
The desires, aims, and needs
of students have changed drastically in that time, but the institution that ties us all together hasn't.
This is the constitution of
the Alma Mater Society.
For the past nine months,
former A.M.S. vice-president
Carey Linde prepared a comprehensive set of constitutional
revisions which council debated at lengUi and finally accepted.
It is these constitutional revisions, called by AMS law
representative Peter Braund as
"the most creative I've seen in
seven years" that students will
be asked to consider at the general meeting Thursday.
But a general meeting needs
a quorum of 2000. Otherwise
a referendum would have to be
held, costing $1400.
And can you imagine reading a ballot 11 pages long?
If the meeting doesn't get a
quorum, the costly referendum
must be held and the revisions,
if passed, would not take effect
until after next year's council
is elected.
Simply stated, the three revisions are as follows:
• to replace the present
weighted vote system by representation by population;
• to implement the commission structure; and
• to enable undergrad societies to levy their own fees.
The first two have generally
been accepted by students'
council as excellent changes.
The weighted vote system
has been under criticism for a
long time.
It means that 60 per cent of
the student body is represented
by three out of 26 members
on  students'  council.
Even with the seldom used
weighted votes, the combined
forces of arts, science, and education faculties only have
Some have voiced fears that
37 councillors will make council unwieldy, but as most of
the work is to be done in the
commissions, council won't
have to deal with issues where
numbers of councillors will be
a problem.
In fact, if the commission
structure is implemented, council will need that many members in order to fill all six
commissions without overworking councillors.
The second main issue is that
of the commission structure.
This, beyond question, is
the best way to organize a
student society, for it basically
means the AMS would be able
to do more work, more efficiently.
Ours wouldn't be the first
university to implement this
idea. The University of Toronto, for one, finds this system
has enabled them to deal with
problems they didn't have time
for  before.
Under this system, the executives of the council are the
commission chairmen, and are
elected at large by the student
These positions stem directly from the old executive positions, but instead of implying
that all the work is the responsibility of one person, areas
of concern are designated to a
group, which is headed by a
member of the executive.
Problems are then handled
in three  stages.
After a commission is made
aware of a certain problem,
the various councillors in the
commission together with resource people do the basic research  and work.
Once the basic facts have
been assembled the commission proper debates and recommends a certain program to
Once here, the issue is given
final approval and acted upon.
As the basic facts won't
have to be brought up at every
council meeting as they do
now, so that council members
know what they are voting on,
this will leave students' council the time to approach problems from a more philosophical
For once the councillors
could get down to issues that
are of general interest, instead
of attending to endless administrative detail.
Nothing much came of the
teach-in held in October because councillors were busy
arguing over issues which
could be taken care of by .one
of the commissions.
Of course if there were any
major problems or great disagreement in one of the commissions, the problem would
be discussed in council.
The only councillor to express loud disagreement was
the University Clubs Committee representative.
His main argument against
the proposed revisions as stated
in a four-page campus club
bulletin, is that the UCC representative would no longer
be a member of council.
The reason for this is a desire to get away from double
Every student is represented
through his faculty, and can

he doesn't get satisfaction from
his undergrad society representative.
Besides, councillors are now
concerned in two ways about
the students.
They of course are interested in seeing the needs of their
faculty taken care of, but un

Council demands say
for Hare s
Student council Monday night demanded a student voice in
choosing Kenneth Hare's successor.
They passed a motion asking the board of governors to set
up a selection committee immediately and that students, faculty,
and administration be given equal representation.
President Dave Zirnhelt said that board chairman Walter
Koerner had assured him that such a committee would be
"broadly  representative  of the  university".
"I take that to mean that students will be included," Zirnhelt said.
The council members also unanimously made Hare an
honorary member of the Alma Mater Society, an admittedly,
by several members, dubious distinction he shares with only
about four others including Eleanor Roosevelt.
The vote came at the conclusion of Zirnhelt's somewhat
emotional account of his association with and confidence in Hare.
Zirnhelt said that the resignation was "almost tragic" and
that Hare was "a great man". "He was truly a friend of the
students," he said.
Zirnhelt said Hare "lacked the support of the academic
He also called for full student, faculty, and administration
support of the next president.
Council also passed several related motions including one
of formal regret over the resignation, and one asking the acting
president to get on with the business at hand. ,
They also accepted an invitation from the administration
to participate in senate committees and recommended that three
voting students be included in all committees. A committee of
six was struck to choose the student reps.
Council was also pleased to hear an account of the Waterloo
conference on Canadian Union of Students from engineering
president, Fraser Hodge.
He referred to the conference, which was held to explore
alternatives to CUS, as "a crock of shit".
"Why I was the most radical delegate there," he said, adding
that it was a very reactionary meeting. Most councillors agreed
that it must have been that.
He concluded with a recommendation to stay in CUS and
reform it, if needed, rather than pulling out.

by the Students' Council after considerable

Tuesday, January 14, 1969
This section is to demystify section B 3.
Under the present system there are
eight executive positions on students'
council elected at large by the students.
These are president, vice-president,
internal affairs officer, external affairs
officer, treasurer, co-ordinator, secretary, and ombusdman. It is these few
people on a council of 25 who do most
of the work and the research on issues
brought to council meetings. Under the
new system, there would be nine
people elected by the students at large:
president, vice-president, ombudsman,
and the six commissioners, named
above. This means that instead of
electing eight executives to positions
which turn out to mean they do all the
important work in council, students
will elect a group of people who will
chair well-defined commissions involving all the councillors. As the basic
research work will done in the commissions themselves, students' council
will not have to waste time in the
weekly meetings going over each
problem from the beginning so that
the undergrad society representatives
know what's going on. This not only
means that more people are separating
the original work amongst themselves,
but the students' council will be left
with time to discuss issues of more
general interest.
Bylaws explained
This  part  exists   to   reveal   the   secrets  of  section
B 8(10).
Most of the new positions evolve directly from the old ones. For example, the
treasurer would become the Finance
Commissioner, the secretary would become the Services Commissioner, and
the internal affairs officer would become the Communication Commissioner. But finally, the areas of responsibility would be clearly defined unlike
they are now. The only new one is the
Education Commissioner, whose commission would take care of an important area now officially under nobody
and dealt with only by individual interested students. As the revisions read
now, only councillors are to be members of the different commissions, but
it is fully intended to try to get other
students on them if this revision passes.
The commissions would work in three
levels. All the basic work would be
done by the members ot the commission and the resource people that are
brought in. Once the research is done,
the commission proper discusses the
problem and makes a recommendation
to council. Here, the final decision is
made and acted upon.
This shall serve to shed light on the shadowy confines of section C 10.
This last issue appears to be the most
contentious one. It means basically
that those undergrad societies with
enough guts to raise sufficient funds
will be able to carry through projects
the AMS hasn't the time to handle.
There are two main fears arising from
this. Firstly, some think this will decentralize the AMS and lessen its
power. Certainly it will give them more
freedom to handle their own affairs,
but there are many more issues than
just those which concern individual
faculties. Perhaps this is just the step
needed to encourage students to think
more in a cohesive unit as members of
the university community rather than
just members of a certain undergrad
society. Secondly there is the fear that
those faculties which do pass fee levies
will be subsidizing those faculties
which don't. Actually all undergrad
societies would still be eligible for discretionary grants from the AMS regardless of whether or not a fee levy is
passed. Besides, those undergrad societies which do pass the levy will have
a great advantage, whereas the others
will still suffer under the present
asBw^^sff :jc
Constitution revisions
From Page 9
have to take a new attitude
towards student   government.
As Linde puts it: "Students
who want to run for office will
have to realize this is not some
kind of glorified high-school
council, or something which
will look good on the record.
"Under the present system,
councillors are not committed
But the main bone of contention on Thursday will be
allowing undergrad societies
to levy their own fees.
In Linde's words, it's "deemed at an insufficiency of funds."
What it would mean is those
societies with enough imagination and hard-working willingness to provide sufficient
funds, will be able to work on
programs of special faculty
interest which the AMS has
no time or money for now.
Some fear this would decentralize the AMS and reduce
its powers.
On the contrary, this would
free the AMS to work on problems of more general concern,
and instead of being weakened by inter-faculty disputes in
itself, could present itself as
the one body representing the
interests of all the students.
Some claim once the undergrad societies have their own
budget, the main hold over
them the AMS has would be
It is true the undergrad
societies would be levying
their own fees, but the financial commissioner would still
have the final say over it.
Looking at the issue more
positively, AMS president Dave
Zirnhelt sees the likely possibility   of stronger   undergrad
societies   making   a   stronger
The biggest argument
against this proposed constitutional revision is that stated by
some of the smaller faculties.
Those societies which are
confident the fee levy will pass
in their faculties fear they will
be subsidizing some of the
larger faculties.
None of the money an
undergrad society levies itself
will be used for another faculty, but all can apply for a
discretionary grant from the
general AMS coffers.
Braund says if these fears
are justified they must be
dealt with at the time they
come up and with the people
"In an over-all view, however, he good that would come
of such a revision would far
outweigh the bad," he said.
Linde sees that without the
revisions, council will continue
under the same "mandarin
"If I were a typical student
councillor I would be against
the revisions for I would foresee a great possibility of bringing many students into the
governing process which would
be against the traditional AMS
political attitude of 'you for
me' and 'me for me'."
More seriously, he was concerned students realize the
three different constitutional
revisions should be looked at
as a whole.
"In order that any one of
them be effective," he said, "it
must be seen as working with
the other two."

Will SUB be open
24 hours a day?
As a result of 1,000 students signing a petition last term,
a referendum today and Wednesday will decide whether SUB
should remain open 24 hours a day.
The SUB management committee has said that keeping
the building open that long would be impractical and unnecessary. They said very few students use the building after 1 a.m.
(present  closing time).
They point out that keeping on the building staff at extra
cost for the entire day for the half dozen or so who remain
in the building would be prohibitively expensive.
Besides, they said, anyone already in the building who wants
to use the building's lounge facilities can do so by registering
their names with the night watchman.
The committee is also afraid of vandalism that may occur
late at night when few people are around as has already happened. They also feel that janitorial, maintenance and insurance costs will go up.
Internal affairs officer Ruth Dworkin, speaking in favor of
the longer hours, refuted the committee's statement.
She says that students should have a place to go 24 hours
a day and the only privileged ones who can use the building
late at night are AMS bureaucrats and SUB management committee members.
In answer to the committee's claim that few people use
the building, she pointed out that one thousand people cigned
the petition. She said that it would cost only $5,000 per year
to keep the cultural, stores and games areas open all night.
She compared this to the $60,000 annually she said it
costs to run the AMS offices.
Miss Dworkin said that most vandalism takes place during the day when the building is congested and that janitorial
costs would not increase as the building is cleaned while students are in it already.
She feels that the SUB committee is concerned only with
bureaucratic things like money and the loss of their elite position as the only ones in the building.

U of S refuses to collect
council fees, UBC okay
REGINA (CUP) — University of Saskatchewan students here have responded sharply to
administration attempts to emasculate their
student union and muzzle their newspaper. The
Student presidents from both University
of Saskatchewan campuses are to meet administration heads Wednesday to work out a
method for settling the students fees crisis
which has spread to both schools.
A general meeting last Wednesday of about
2,500 students of 4,400 at the university's
Regina campus voted overwhelmingly for a
referendum Thursday proposing a written contract between the student council and the administration that would direct the administration to collect council fees from students at
Loney speaks to meeting
The proposal, which specified that the
council is responsible for disbursements of
these fees, was passed Thursday in a vote of
1,101 to 539.
The general meeting was addressed by
several student leaders, among them Martin
Loney, president-elect of CUS, who attacked
the board of governors as representing the
province's corporations and the Saskatchewan
Liberal party.
"For the past while the press has been talking about outside agitators, a militant minority
was attempting to mould students' minds and
destroy the university," Loney said. "I have
been looking for these people and now I think
I have finally found them — on the board of
governors of the University of Saskatchewan."
Regina student councillor John Gallagher
told the meeting that the issue is not The
Carillon but the survival of the student council here. With support from Ralph Smith,
council president in 1966-67, Gallagher outlined previous administration attempts to suppress The Carillon.
The Regina administration maintains it has
left open channels for discussions and negotiation between the student council and the board
of governors,. although council has consistently
charged the governors with imposing censorship and restricting free speech within the
Administration says
In a statement Wednesday, the administration outlined its version of past conflicts with
The Carillon and said:
"One  of  the  duties  of  the  board  of  gov
ernors is to have regard for the welfare and
advancement of the university. If any organization of the university, including the student
newspaper, persists in acting in a manner considered to be harmful to the university, the
board must disassoetaie-the university officially
from any involvement." *—
The student council earlier dis-misseo1 this
argument by pointing out the university's
calendar urges students to carry on a continuing  examination  of institutions  and  ideas.
The calendar adds: "This constant critique
must be applied first to the structure and
functon of the university itself."
The student council at the U. of S. campus
at Saskatoon also condemned the governors'
action, demanding in a meeting Tuesday that
the board reverse its decision and guarantee
the autonomy of student press and student
government at both campuses.
Friday the two student councils decided
to press for written contracts directing the
board of governors to collect their fees and
turn them over to the union unconditionally.
Carillon 'undermines confidence'
The demand was in response to the board's
Dec. 31 announcement that it would not collect
union fees at Regina this term because of
council support of The Carillon, which it said
has undermined confidence in th3 university's
senate, admnistration and governors.
Wednesday's meeting will involve student
presidents Dave Sheard of Regina and Eric
Olson of Saskatoon and principals William
Riddell of Regina and R. W. Begg of Saskatoon.
The Regina student council has said it will
negotiate only how and when the board will
begin collecting fees. Should the board be
unable to collect fees for this semester this
late, it will expect a board grant to cover
the losses.
Student councils and newspapers from
Antigonish to Vancouver are throwing support
to the Regina student council.
Two student presidents, six student councils, 16 university student newspapers and
CUS have said that they are backing the Regina student council.
UBC's Alma Mater Society is one of these.
UBC Alma Mater Society president Dave
Zirnhelt said Monday the AMS has no contact with the administration to collect its student union fees. "I don't think they will ever
refuse to collect our fees for us," said Dave.

OTTAWA (CUP)—Take 59 university presidents who want a national organization to
"speak for Canadian universities". Add $1.75
for each Canadian university student.
With that, rent two floors of office space,
buy the services of scores of academics and secretaries, hold an annual general meeting, write
Canadian University Press
a lot of letters, and sponsor a bunch of studies
about higher education.
The result is called the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada, the academic
equivalent of serving baked beans in a fondue
pot. The trappings are pleasant, the rhetoric
sounds convincing, but investigation shows the
fare to be plain and conducive to bureaucratic
First, the rhetoric. AUCC axecutive director Geoffrey Andrew explains how the association came to exist and develop: "Any society
strung along 5,000 miles of geography, divided
into 10 political divisions and five regions,
with two maor languages, has a basic problem
of communication.
"There is no national press, and national
television and radio have little time for matters concerning higher education. As a consequence, universities and colleges tend to become isolated from the mainstream of thought
and change.
"The universities came together to exchange information and views as Canadian
universities with different problems from universities of other countries.
'After 40 years  they decided they needed a secretariat to
study problems'
"After about 40 years of exchanging views
they decided they needed a secretariat to study
these problems and to make representations to
govrnment bas2d on studies and not opinion."
Andrew's talk of "thought", "change" and
"study" occurs again in the themes of AUCC
conferences — this year's was The Nature of
the Contemporary University — and some of
the research AUCC watches over, such as the
Duff-Berdahl report on university government.
But the contents of the rhetorical fondue
pot are pretty stale. Membership ino AUCC is
open to any institution with degree-granting
powers and over 200 students. Of 61 Canadian
institutions eligible for membership, only two,
College Ste. Anne in New Brunswick and
Christ the King seminary in British Columbia,
aren't members. The $1.75 psr student levy
provides AUCC with an annual operating budget over over $400,000.
What is the money used for? It supports
five divisions of AUCC staff, each with its own
• the domestic programs division engages
mainly in membership matters, examining the
credentials of new institutions applying for
membership and so on. The division also convenes meetings of various associations, such
as The Association of Canadian Medical Colleges, which is affiliated with AUCC. The
domestic programs divisions is also responsible
for such things as the placing of Czechoslovakian refugees in Canadian universities.
• the international programs division
handles liaison with groups such as Canadian
University Students Overseas and UNESCO.
It examines, for example, how Canada can be
most effective in aiding foreign students and
The association staff keeps in touch with
foreign students who want to come to Canada
or are in Canada. The staff also is responsible
for Canadian representation at international
conferences on various aspects of higher education.
• the awards division handles scholarships
and fellowships established by industry and
governments and given to AUCC to administer.
In 1968 the division handled over 50 programs
involving more than  $3 million.  Awards has

the biggest staff and handles more bureaucratic work than any other AUCC division.
The division answered over 6,000 letters concerning awards available at Canadian universities last year.
• the research division looks after AUCC
interests in various studies of higher education which the association is involved in —
studes such as the relations between universities and government, accessibility to higher
education and so on.
Since all studies are financed through government   or   foundation   grants,   the   research
division takes the smallest bite of AUCC resources, less than 10 per cent of the total budget, and has only four people involved in its
administrative work.
• the information division is responsible
for AUCC publications such as University
Affairs, a monthly bulletin, and various tracts
of information on Canadian universities. The
division also handles press relatons for AUCC
and is responsible for the association's library.
The information divison also handles requests
for information on Canadian universities —
over 3,000 letters were answered last year.
'4 ot 5 AUCC divisions are engaged in writing letters, administering, and
perpetuating bureaucracy.'
A quick look at the five divisions shows
that only research, the smallest of the five, is
concerned with such things as "change" in
Canadian universities. The other four are engaged in writing letters, "administering" and
perpetuating bureaucracy.
AUCC officials are quick to point out that
one reason for the immense bureaucracy is the
lack of federal office of higher education.
Until an office is created, AUCC inherits by
default such things as administering awards
programs, answering letters, and looking after
foreign students.
Despite the bureaucracy, however, AUCC
has a most powerful position in matters concerning higher education — mainly through
its research division.
It seems axiomatic that before change can
occur in Canadian universities "studies" must
be done on questions and concepts. The cost of
studies on such things as student aid, university
government or university costs is prohibitive,
however, unless they are foundaton or government-financed.
In recent history, AUCC has been a sponsor
or co-sponsor of every major study concerning
Canadian higher education — Duff-Behdahl,
the Bladen commission, commission on relations between universities and government,
and so on.
The precedent does exist that AUCC is involved in studies of this nature and when some
other group goes with hat in hand to a foundation or the government the question of why
AUCC is not involved will be raised. In short,
it is conceivable that no study of a question in
Canadian higher education can be done without AUCC involvement — a most powerful
position for any group to hold.
Both Andrew and research director D. G.
Fish deny this situation exists, although they
spend more time asking whether it is conceivable that anyone would have a study that
AUCC wouldn't be interested in co-sponsoring,
or would not want the association involved.
Andrew, however, says: "I would like to
see AUCC in that position (of being involved
in all studies of higher education) because it
represents more and more, the total university
'25 of 600 delegates to the annual AUCC meeting were students.' That's
Andrew cites the fact that 25 of 600 delegates to this year's annual meeting were students to back up his contention that AUCC
is representative. To label AUCC as the administrators' version of the Canadian Union
of Students is, he says, inaccurate.
The danger of having all studies done
through AUCC can be seen in examining those
now in progress, which Fish says are fairly
typical. The five now being done are: university-government  relations,   costs   of  university
programs and departments, student housing,
accessibility to higher education, and how
Canadian resources may best be used in aiding
foreign universites.
As CUS feld worker Ted Richmond puts it,
"The studies are hardly concerned with basic
questions of Canadian universities — the questions which both students and faculty very
much want answered. AUCC seems interested
only in toying with the present situation."
'Studies of curriculum and a changing concept of the university are
just as urgent, but less important than studies of university costs'
Andrew says the subject of the reports does
not indicate a desire to merely tinker with the
status quo: "The first subjects that have been
studied are the one which have seemed most
important and urgent. Studies of curriculum
and a changing concept of the university in
society are just as urgent, but somewhat less
important right now that studies of university
costs and university-government relations."
In fact, Andrew claims, the Duff-Berdahl
report has initiated change in Canadian universities.
"This antedated the student protest movement," he adds.
"The persons now interested in reform
should unify forces to articulate and detail reforms. Ultimatums can only delay reform and
create backlashes—discussion is necessary."
Andrew's words are pretty far away from
writing letters about what courses and awards
are available at Canadian universities—something which AUCC seems to devote far more
resources to than concepts of change.
He says AUCC has not deployed its resources in bureaucratic concerns but in subjects of reform and questions of a different
role for the university: "I'd be very happy to
put our record of concern and productivity up
for examination to anyone — in our studies,
publications and conferences."
Students at the University of Western Ontario decided to do just that recently. They
intend to investigate what AUCC does and
how it spends the $1.75 per student it receives.
If the association does "represent, more
and more, the total university community", as
Andrew says it does, maybe a few more students should follow UWO's lead and lind out
just what is happening.

Don't know what you want to do after graduation?
Welcome to The Club.
The Club, in case you haven't heard, is a not very exclusive organization of thousands of young degree candidates just like
yourself. The only qualification needed for membership is that
you can't decide what field you want to go into.	
Well, read on. We might just be the people who'll close the clubhouse door for you.
We? We are The Mercantile Bank of Canada, one of the nation's
chartered banks.	
The particulars: Mercantile, an affiliate of First National City
Bank, is headquartered in Montreal. We have seven additional
offices from the Atlantic to the Pacific Oceans: Halifax, Quebec,
Montreal, Toronto, Winnipeg, Calgary and Vancouver. We're
growing fast because we're thinking fast. (You have to think fast
when you're a small chartered bank in Canada.)	
That's where you come in.
We need more people who can think fast on their feet. Dynamic
people with initiative; people who can innovate.
Since we're still fairly small as banks go, we can help you develop
your individual talents and potential for real accomplishment. If
you'll supply the ambition, we'll supply the challenge.
Our requirements are quite straightforward: you should have
good grades, evidence of wide activities and interests, a comfortable facility for dealing with people and a desire to excel.
if you're our kind of man, we want to talk to you about a career
with Mercantile.  . 	
Not just pushing buttons, or shuffling papers, or looking neat behind a desk. But involvement—in every phase of banking, creative
banking.         •      _
We're not concerned if you don't know anything about high
finance or the intricacies of banking. We'll train you ourselves
in all kind of banking operations. And when your training is over,
we'll give you as much responsibility as you can handle—every
step of the way... up.
Money? We aren't naive enough to think we'll get the best people
for precious little money. We pay competitive salaries to get you
in the first place. And keep paying top dollar for top performance.
So if you have any degree of interest for a banking career-a
bachelor's or master's degree, that is—make an appointment
through your university placement officer to get yourself interviewed by our campus representative..

in two-game hockey sweep

on 23 other shots as the Birds easily won both weekend
Basketball team
drops two games
The Thunderbird basketball team suffered two losses on
the weekend, 85-65 Friday night and 93-68 Saturday both to a
powerful American school rated in the top ten in the small
collegiate ratings.
The losses, at the hands of mighty University of Puget
Sound Loggers, were the fifth and sixth of the year. The losses
were caused by poor outside shooting and by the continuing
story of injuries.
Without starting guards Ron Thorsen and Phil Langley the
Birds were again forced to go with their zone defense and the
Loggers simply shot over it.
Friday night Dave Lindstrom popped in 23 points from the
outside and Jim Huston with 20 led the Loggers.
The Birds, shooting a fearful 28% from the field, were led
by Bob Molinski with 15 and Neil Murray with 12.
Saturday was much the same as the Loggers again found
the range from the  outside.
Trailing 47-33 at the half, the Birds fell even further behind
as forward John Smith of the Loggers got most of his 18 points
in the second half.
Centre Neil Williscroft led the Birds with 14 points with
Terry MacKay and Bob Molinski finishing with 11.
So far this year the Birds have been averaging 85 points
per game, made up of a 42% field goal percentage and 64% from
the foul line.
Incidentally, Ron Thorsen, Bob Barazzuol, and Neil Williscroft have scoring averages of slightly over 14 points per game.

UBC won by scores of 13-1
in Friday's opener and settled
for a 10-2 win on Saturday.
Desharnais finally came up

Schaab had to share in the
limelight as he played outstanding hockey and on more

12 minute mark; later Desharnais, Wilcox, Jones and McDowell all scored in the space
of one minute and 47 seconds
as the Birds led 5-0 after the
first period.
Barry Wilcox and Jack
Moores scored in the second
frame while Bob Lennox tallied for the only Winnipeg goal
of the game.

were in full control as they
scored six unanswered goals

Weekend Action Star
Hailing from the Ozark capital of B.C. —
Cranbrook, Miles Desharnais played his minor
hockey in this area, including playing with
the Nelson Maple Leafs.
In his fourth season with the Birds, Miles
usually ranks as one of the teams leading point
getters. Last year he scored 13 goals and had
25 assists and was second high man in scoring.
After a rather slow start this season the
old veteran appears to be back to his old form.
Miles had his best games of this season over
the weekend as he scored six goals and assisted
on four others.
Although not as fast as he was at one time,
Miles more than makes up for it with his
"heady" style of play. As he himself has stated
"When you get older you don't have the speed
that you had at one time but you more than
make up for it in experience and the ability to
think as you play".
Miles is on the penalty killing line as well
as playing on a regular shift with linemates
Schaab and Wilcox.
He is in his fourth year in P.E. and is currently President of the Big Block Club.
UBC track and field team
shows well in big meet
Four UBC student athletes
competed during the weekend
at the Calgary International Indoor Track Meet.
Ann Covell, Tom Howard,
Ray Stevenson and Ken Elmer
all competed in the meet which
drew many outstanding American athletes including Olympic
Gold Medalists Lee Evans,
Ronnie Ray Smith and Barbara
Farrell. Eight American universities were also represented.
Ray Stevenson had the only
first place finish in taking the
men's  long  jump with  a  22
foot and one and a quarter
inch jump. He also managed a
third place finish in the shot
Ann Covell was second to
Jarvis Scott, an American who
finished fifth at the Olympics
in the 440 yard event. It was
a close race all the way and
Ann just failed to catch her
opponent at the finish line. Her
time was a pretty quick 60.4
Our two runners, Tom Howard and Ken Elmer, placed well
up in the distance events with
Pigskin Party laugh-in
football team wins all
The only time the UBC football team wins awards is at the
party where Frank T. Gnup is the master of ceremonies, toast-
master, chairman, secretary-treasurer and sometimes football
Many important awards were given out by Gnup in his
position as master of unceremoniousness; Shrum was given the
Simon Shuffle award (analagous to UBC's Great Trekker
award) — the figure was dressed in the tartan of the Mc-
Bastard clan.
Among other notables to receive the spotlight through his
golden tongue was The Ubyssey who received the Scoop award
for 1968. This was given in recognition of the story that The
Ubyssey ran in the middle of last year which quoted a young
lady as saying that UBC would become a liberal education institute only when sex was allowed in the classrooms. Gnup concurred.
Abe Vanderhorst was given one of the few serious awards
as a Jayvee player of the year as were Reg Letourneau and
Jim Judiesch.
After being presented with the Chickenshit award from one
of the team, Gnup commented, "They can't play too damn
well, but they sure as hell can elucidate." This was a very
functional award because if the team ever wins, it can be
turned around and the Thunderchicken on it becomes a Cock-
of the-Walk.
A few occasional comments from the coach slipped out also,
for instance in presenting an award to Mike Ayre, he said,
"I've never had a hippy play for me, but this year I had no-
choice, and by God if he didn't do a good job."
In presenting freshman Doug Eaton with the Rookie of
the Year award Gnup said that Eaton was thankful for being
taken to Hawaii, but Gnup commented, "I was glad he could
In presenting other serious awards such as Back of the
year to Paul Danilieu, Defensive lineman of the year to Fred
Maier, Lineman of the year to Jim Fornelli; Defensive Back
of the year wento to Bob Whitehead and Inspirational leader
award went to Bob Laycoe, Gnup thanked them all for playing.
His comments usually cast a light on some of his problems,
such as when he said that he didn't mind defensive backs who
could only see bodies in front of them, but he really felt that
he would have to draw the line if he ever had one who was
Another significant comment was "I see 'em go out but
that don't mean that I acknowledge them."
Tom finishing the two-mile
course in 9:35.5, only 2.5
seconds behind the winner and
Ken picking up a sixth place
finish in the mile with a clocking of 4:32.

Swim team
does well
This year's version of the
UBC Swim team was seen by
the public for the first time in
the Pacific Northwest Association Championships on Saturday and Sunday.
An interesting quote from
the captain, Jim Maddin, was
heard just after a practise that
the coach called, at ten o'clock
p.m. after the Saturday finals.
!He said, "If this is what we
get for that kind of showing,
I think we'd better improve,
damn fast." Needless to say
they did.
Good performances were
turned in by all of the swimmers, but special note must go
to second year man Ted Dorchester, who, in finishing
sixth in the 200-yd. backstroke,
improved his personal best
Frosh Chris Hanna and Don
Cooper had their first taste of
intercollegiate swimming and
both of them turned in creditable times for so early in the
The coach is looking to
strong men Phil Dockerill,
who is the team's top breast-
stroker as well as being a good
backup man for sprint relays
and endurance events, atid
Bruce Melton who is again
showing promise after a long
absence from the water, for
many points through the upcoming year.
Second year returnee Terry
Lyons will also add a punch to
the relay teams and will help
out in the sprint freestyle
The first chance for local
swimming fans to see the team
is on Wednesday night when
they compete against Western
Washington State College at
6 p.m.

Ubyssey journalists
attend convention
Six of They Ubyssey's finest were among 300 student
journalists at the Canadian University Press (CUP) national
convention in Toronto Dec. 26-31.
Editor Al Birnie found it hard to say what effect the
staff's experience at the convention will have on the quality
of the paper in the coming term.
"It's hard to say," he said.
Needled to further speculation, Al said some observers think
the paper has nowhere to go but up. "But it could go down,"
he added. He concluded it may even stay the same.
One member of the delegation, Ubyssey associate editor
Paul Knox, was elected one of three field workers in the western
region (west of Winnipeg) of the organization.
CUP is a student-operated press service consisting of 46
Canadian campus papers from coast-to-coast, by land and sea.
It has a national office in Ottawa with five full time staff
The office is responsible for receiving news stories from
member campuses and distributing them via mail, telex, or phone
to the other member papers.
