AUS runs own dean rep Vote
The arts undergraduate society
and affiliated groups are going
ahead with their own arts dean
selection committee elections in
defiance of an election run by
registrar Jack Parnall.
Parnall interprets a senate
decision approving the committee
structure as allowing only the 23
arts faculty student reps to run for
and vote on the two student
positions on the 10-member
committee.
He has asked the 23 reps, who sit
on arts faculty committees, to
decide their choice either at a
meeting later this week or by mail
ballot.
Acting AUS president Stew
Savard, who wants to see a general
election in arts for the positions,
said Monday he has received informal approval from some board
of governors members and
senators to conduct faculty-wide
elections Dec. 5 and 6.
Nominations will open today,
he said.
Senate earlier this month approved a committee structure
submitted by the board comprising
four faculty, four administration-
appointed members and two
students "elected from the
students represented on the faculty
concerned."
There was no detailed discussion
by senate of the student section of
the committee formula.
The committee will search for a
replacement for administration
president-designate Doug Kenny,
who resigned from the arts dean
position in October.
Parnall said Monday the student-
run election would "just be an
exercise in futility." He said the
students' action is "contrary to
what the board of governors and
senate agree to."
However, Parnell said students
elected in the student-run elections
might be able to sit on the committee. "In the meantime, they
should still go with the
procedures" set by the board and
senate, he said.
"The cart's coming before the
horse, Parnell said.
Parnell said he met with student
senator Nancy Carter Friday and
the two agreed interpretations of
the senate decisions would allow
faculty-wide elections from candidates among the 29 representatives.
However, he said he couldn't see
how nominations could be extended beyond the 23 representatives already in office.
Savard said the reps "basically
don't want the job." "They don't
see their mandate from their
department as covering this
issue."
Almost all the faculty reps were
elected by acclamation.
Savard said he contacted some
board and senate members Friday
to check out feasibility of the idea
that arts students conduct the
elections.
"He said most board members
contacted said: "If students want
to run their own elections, then let
them run" them."
Board member Beverly Lecky
said Monday she sees an interpretation of the senate rules as
being that "all students are
allowed to vote."
She said the board will meet
Tuesday and students can present
their ideas to the board then. Lecky
said she had not been contacted by
Savard. Three other board
members reached by The Ubyssey
Monday said they are not familiar
with the issue or do not think it
significant.
Savard said the elections are
being conducted by the AUS and
affiliated groups including
associations for home economics,
library and social work.
Nominations, which close Dec. 3
at noon, can be handed in at the
AUS office in Buch. 107 where they
will be sent on to the registrar.
Five arts students' signatures are
required to make a valid
nomination.
'Data centre group
got student input'
By SUE VOHANKA
The administration committee
which decided to locate the
proposed library processing centre
to the northwest of SUB did receive
negative student opinion before
making the decision, an Alma
Mater Society council rep said
Monday.
Basil Stuart-Stubbs, committee
chairman and head UBC librarian,
said last Wednesday the planning
and siting committee had received
no student input and didn't know
what the majority of council
members thought of the proposed
site.
"I feel that Stubbs did get
student input," said science rep
Ron Walls. "I don't think it's fair to
say students were negligent in
their response."
Walls said most council members reacted unfavorably when
Stubbs presented the proposal to
council in late September.
"The input he got at the September meeting was clear," said
Walls.
He said he attended another
meeting to discuss the proposed
site about two weeks after the
council meeting Stubbs had spoken
to. He said Stubbs, administration
president-designate Doug Kenny,
AMS president Gordie Blankstein,
architecture rep Ed Leflufy and
arts rep Arlene Francis also attended the meeting.
"The reason for that meeting
was because of the poor reception
Stubbs received for his site," Walls
said.
"I don't see how anyone could
take it any other way than that we
didn't want the site," he said. "As
far as I'm concerned, there are a
lot of other possible sites. I think
there are too many things that
haven't been look into.
"Something can probably be
worked out, but not on that site,"
Walls said.
Blankstein appointed Walls to
the planning committee, but he
didn't attend Wednesday's
meeting, the first since August.
Wails said he didn't miss the
meeting because of illness, as
previously reported in The
Ubyssey.
"I was genuinely sick but I came
out to classes anyway and would
have gone to the meeting," said
Walls.
"I wasn't consulted on the
meeting time ... I couldn't go
because it was scheduled to conflict with my classes.
"I don't feel they were that interested in having me there," he
said. "If they have five people (on
the planning committee) who
won't listen to a whole council why
would they listen to me.
"Our statement had been made.
They did what -they were going to
do all along."
"Walls added: "I shouldn't have
missed it. I can see that now."
Walls said he doesn't understand
why the committee meets only
every few months. "I should have
done more work on it," he said.
"But I assumed it would meet
fairly regularly."

Patty Hearst spotted at UBC
By ARNIE BANHAM
Revolutionary heiress Patricia
Hearst, sought by police
throughout North America for
terrorist activities, briefly visited
campus last week, The Ubyssey
learned Monday.
Hearst, a folk hero since last
February when she was kidnapped
by the Symbionese Liberation
Army only to later denounce her
bourgeois life-style, parents and
fiancee, spoke to residents in
Totem Park cafeteria.
Her secret visit, sponsored by
Alma Mater Society special
events, lasted for 2-1/2 hours.
Before she talked to residents,
Hearst went on a tour of the
campus which included stops in the
Faculty     Club,     the     faculty
washroom in the classics wing of
the Buchanan building, which she
denounced for its elitism, and the
engineering building computer
centre.
A recording of her talk in the
residence cafeteria was first given
to radio station CITR, but a station
staffer, who wanted to remain
anonymous, told The Ubyssey the
station's executive refused to
broadcast the tape because of its
political implications.
However, a cassette recording of
her speech mysteriously appeared
in the 'Tween Classes box of the
Ubyssey newsroom Monday
morning.
In her speech, Hearst described
the trauma of rejecting her party
girl life-style at Berkeley where
she was studying fine arts for that
of the fiery-eyed Tanya fondling an
automatic rifle — an image the
North American public has come
to associate with this diminutive
brunette.
"After 21 years of living in the
affluent lap of my reactionary,
running-dog father's empire, I felt
a surge of revolutionary power
within me," she told the students.
"The dark majesty of
proletarian oneness could not be
shaken loose.
"A seed was planted and I was
swept away by the tide of it all.
"The whole thing was so fluid at
first.
"Only after rapping with my
comrades in the army and hitting
banks and pigs, did my creative
direction, my juices find proper,
correct direction."
An unidentified witness to the
speech told The Ubyssey the
audience staunchly applauded the
speech, giving the young
revolutionary a standing ovation
for several minutes after she ended
her talk with a poem, "The
people's will: the dog-fuckers'
demise, or We are the heirs of
Donald DeFreeze."
A transcript of the poem was
shown Monday to English
professor George Woodcock, a
noted literary critic and poet.
When asked by The Ubyssey to
describe   his   impressions   of
Hearst's writing, he said: "It lacks
internal structure —' resonance,

assonance,   rhyme   and   punctuation.
"Thematically, it reflects the
Marxist-Leninist thought pecular
to West Coast poets living in our
major urban centres during the
'60s.
"It's a dogmatic ideology shared
by the SLA and other groups
devoted to violence and armed
dissent to achieve their aim of
destroying monopoly capitalism."
James Conrad, special events
head, and AMS president Gordon
Blankstein, who has long had a
special interest in the program,
declined to say how Hearst arrived
in Canada.
"I don't talk to you guys
anymore," Blankstein said in an
interview. "If you wish to ask
questions about Miss Hearst,
please submit them in written
form."
However, a friend of Conrad's in
law school explained the
machinations of getting the
revolutionary across the border.
"A dealer who supplies a
promoter buddy of Jim's was
bringing in some dope and it was
agreed a boat hired by the dealer
could pick Miss Hearst up in
Washington state.
"The way I hear it they met at
the Breakers in Point Roberts
where Miss Hearst had a couple of
Coors and then fucked off north on
this fishing boat.
"The boat dropped her off at the
logging booms below Point Grey
and she spent her first few hours in
Canada hidden in a net shack on
the Musqueam Indian reserve."
The Ubyssey also learned
Hearst's speaking services were
first offered to the Vancouver
Institute, where the city's more
prestigious citizens meet on
Saturday evenings to hear
discussions on topical events.

meeting is scheduled for late
January or February, Walls said.
"I want to get hold of Stubbs and
the others and have a meeting
right after Christmas," he said.
U.K. House
spurns rock
star sperm
LONDON (CUP/Z S) — The
British Academy of Sciences, after
an 18-month study, has recommended to Parliament that British
rock stars be prohibited by law
from selling their semen to commercial sperm banks.
The Academy has stated that
restrictions are necessary because
it fears that a lack of controls could
lead to a "sperm bank pop star
war."
What the scientists have, been
worrying about is that rock idols
such as Mick Jagger, David Bowie
or Paul McCartney might sell their
sperm to the frozen banks which
would, in turn, advertise it —
selling it to thousands of female
groupies wishing to become
pregnant.
The Academy has said it does not
oppose the idea of thousands of
Mick Jagger offspring being
fathered. What is worrisome, said
the Academy, is that when these
children grow up, they could
marry one another without
knowing that they have the same
father.
This, the Academy has warned,
is incest — and could lead to
genetic problems in the future.
The Academy's report has been
turned over to the House of
Commons for further probing.
Walls said Stubbs is only doing
his job. "He has to go and get that
site. We have to try and stop him,"
he said.
"I don't think he's that concerned about us stopping him. He
should be," Walls added.
AMS council decided Wednesday
to send a letter to UBC's board of'
governors charging the proposed
site violates SUB boundaries and
property rights.
AMS vice-president Rob Smith
said Monday council is waiting for
a reply to the letter.
Smith said the boundaries and
rights are defined in a written
agreement between the AMS and
UBC administration concerning
SUB and its site which was drawn
up before SUB was built.
One clause in the agreement
prohibits building on SUB land.
Another clause states the land
between SUB and East Mall shall ,
be "free and clear of buildings
which would detract from the
appearance of SUB or deter traffic
thereto."
Smith said he doesn't know if the
proposed centre site is on -SUB
land, but said it would definitely
deter traffic along the concrete
path to SUB from Buchanan and
Brock Hall.
Smith said he will take a count of
the number of people using the
pathway between 8:30 a.m. and
4:30 p.m. either today or Wednesday.
"I think it's important to get a
count right now," said Smith. He
said he will give the administration
the results if there is no response to
student dissatisfaction with the
proposed site.
But the institute's executive
apparently scoffed at the chance
and reported the offer from a noted
American newsmagazine editor to
the RCMP.
Sgt. Stan Nowicki of the campus
RCMP said Monday he had no
knowledge of the institute's
rejection or of Hearst's visit to
campus.
But a senior RCMP official, in a
telephone interview Monday from
* Ottawa, said the force and FBI
agents had been keeping a close
watch on border crossings, airports and bus depots.
Housing director Les Rohringer
declined to discuss the matter
Monday.
Food service director Robert
Bailey, when asked how his
workers could not have noticed
Hearst in the residence cafeteria,
declined comment "because I want
to let the whole matter drop."
Both said they believe administration president Walter
Gage knew of Hearst's visit.
But Gage" told The Ubyssey he
neither knew Hearst nor that she
had visited campus.
"Besides, I'm getting ready to
bugger off," said Gage, interviewed while emptying his oak
desk in the old administration
building. "It's (Doug) Kenny's
problem, now."
Kenny, who will replace Gage in
July, was unavailable for comment
Monday. He was speaking to the
Pouce Coupe chapter of the Alumni
Association.

RCMP evict SUB food vendors
By JAKE van der KAMP
A co-operative selling health
food in SUB friday was evicted by
the RCMP after Alma Mater
Society executive members,
complained that the food was being
sold illegally.
AMS co-ordinator Ron Dumont
said Monday the co-operative was
evicted because it didn't have the
necessary health certificate for
selling food.
He noted that the AMS could be
held responsible for any cases of
food poisoning caused by food sold
in the building.
But Ron Campbell, a student
member of the co-operative said
the health food is much more
healthy than anything else sold in
SUB.
Campbell said he had been told
to leave Thursday by AMS
president Gordie Blankstein and
building manager Graeme Vance
and was warned police would be
called in if he did not comply.
He said police did not cite any
contraventions of the health act
when evicting him and only told
him he was trespassing.
"How can you trespass in your
own building?" he said.
The co-operative continued to
sell food outside the building
Friday and Campbell promised the
food would be sold inside the
building again today.
Dumont said he was personally
against eviction but was compromised when Blankstein
threatened^ to call in police
Thursday.
"The reason they were kicked
out Friday was that Gordon
threatened them Thursday and if
you make a threat like that you've
got to back it up" he said.
"I sure as hell didn't want to
phone the police. I honestly don't
know if I'd call them in again."
Dumont said if the same people
are evicted a second time police
will charge them with trespassing.
'He said the SUB management
committee has a hard time
regulating use of the SUB foyer by
vendors.
The tease with the Thunderbird
shop in the basement states that
the shop has first right to any space
for selling anything in the SUB
foyer, he said.
"Who can stop them for claiming
those tables?"
Dumont said the agreement with
food services and The Delly in the
basement prohibit the AMS from
allowing any competing food
vendors in SUB.

Japanese deny invasion report
By MARK BUCKSHON
A report suggesting 3,000 radical
Japanese students plan to visit
UBC during the Habitat 76 conference on urban problems surprised Japanese consular officials
Monday.
Vancouver consular officer Tosh
Tanaka said consul-general
Yuzuro Murakami couldn't believe
the report when the message was
relayed to himr
"He has never heard an inkling
about it until you phoned," Tanaka
said.
"The consul-general says the
figure 3,000 seems to be an extremely high number. I can't think
of 3,000 people making the journey
at the same time," said Tanaka.
That surprise was echoed by representatives of international leftist
groups and a spokesperson for
Habitat 76 interviewed by The
Ubyssey.
CBC producer Mike Crampton, a
member of a special Arts Council
committee investigating conference planning, said Thursday
the council had received information about an invasion
possibility from a  "senior civil
service official" in Ottawa. He said
he cannot release the official's
name but will check with him
Wednesday to obtain more information.
Conference coordinator Bruce
Fairburn said Monday he has not
heard anything about the invasion
possibility other than what he had
read in The Ubyssey.
Fairburn is responsible for
coordinating student activities at
the conference, which will bring
more than 10,000 people to UBC to
discuss solutions to problems
facing urban areas of the world.
Fairburn said rumors circulated
at the 1972 Habitat conference that
two Boeing 747s loaded with
radical Japanese would land at the
Stockholm site and begin massive
demonstrations.
"It was the joke of the conference," said Fairburn, who
suggested authorities had
prepared for the invasion.
"This thing is just a rumor at this
point," he said. "If anything was
happening it would have to come
through to me."
Al Soroka, UBC law librarian
and member of the Communist
Party of Canada (Marxist-
Leninist), said his international
organization has a Japanese affiliate but he has not heard
anything about a possible invasion
of radicals.
A representative of the Vancouver chapter of the Young
Socialists said her organization
also has Japanese connections but
local members haven't heard
about a planned invasion.
But he admitted that the cooperative technically cannot be in
competition with the Delly because
of an understanding that the Delly
will not serve prepared food.
However, he also admitted the
AMS is allowing the Delly to serve
prepared food in competition with
food services and therefore cannot
discriminate against the cooperative for doing the same.
He said he will recommend that
the co-operative be allowed in SUB '
as soon as it has a health certificate.
Dumont noted that the final say
rests with SUB management
committee which is considering
allowing vendors in the building
only one day a week.
The health food sold by the cooperative consisted of sandwiches
containing avocados, alfalfa
sprouts, bananas and special
butter.
Small packages of cheese and
juice were sold as well.
Campbell said the co-operative
sold about 15 sandwiches a day
both in and outside SUB.
He said he would like to investigate the grounds on which
RCMP could enforce evictions
from SUB.
Only a health inspector could ask
RCMP to enforce an eviction for
not having a health certificate, he
said.
"We're going to sell with or
without a health permit," he said.
"The cops kick us out, they leave
and we come in again.
Gay students
get crack
at bursary
MONTREAL (CUP) — An
anonymous donor has initiated a
$200 bursary for any male or
female student homosexual at Sir
George Williams who has achieved
superior distinction at the third
year university level.
Applicants can apply themselves
or be nominated for the award
simply by filling out some forms in
writing. However, as with other
bursaries at the university, the
applicant's parents must also fill
out the forms.
Financial Aid officer Freda
Haffey has made assurance that
all applications will be held in the
strictest confidence. The recipient
of the award will not have his or
her name announced unless they
wish to do so, she said.
To apply, when filling out the
application form the applicant
must give some indication he or
she is a homosexual by simply
writing, "I am a homosexual."
"After all, we aren't going to
have tests," Haffey said.
Pit eyes guest limit
The SUB management committee voted Friday to recommend
that no more than 75 guests per
night be allowed in the Pit Mondays through Thursdays.
The recommendation must be
approved by Alma Mater Society
council Thursday before it goes
into effect.
The proposed restriction is based
on an AMS study which shows that
the Pit has an average of about
1,000 guests a week, taking an
average of one-half the 400 seats in
the room.
The study shows that most off-
campus guests stay in the Pit until
11:30 p.m. closing and many
students are forced to stand in
lineups while the pub remains full.
AMS coordinator Ron Dumont
said Monday enforcement of the
restriction will depend on what is
permitted by Liquor Administration   Board   regulations.
He said the committee is considering leaving 75 guest passes a
day in the AMS business office to
be signed out by students wishing
to bring a guest into the Pit.
No guests will be allowed in at
the door unless they have a pass,
he said.
Dumont said there may be a
charge for the passes if the LAB
permits it.
"Obviously students want to
bring guests in," he said. "But we
don't want someone coming up to
any student in the line asking to be
signed in."
Current regulations allow one
guest per student and do not
restrict the student's relationship
to the guest.
One Pit doorman who wished to
remain unidentified said he encounters many cases of students
signing in guests who are
strangers to them.
Dumont said he wants to get
some student opinion of the
restriction but said it will be
supported by most students who
have spent time waiting in line.
"Some people have to stand in
lineout there for half an hour," he
said. Page 4

Arts ignoring real issue
The arts undergraduate society is taking its
first, few faltering steps (hey, that's alliteration)
towards relevance by holding an alternative
election of reps to the dean selection committee.
They've got the right idea when they say
students as a whole should have input into the
dean selection process.
But they're allowing the system as a whole to
obscure their idea of what that process itself
should be.
The current process is this:
A committee made up of faculty members,
student reps and administration types solicits
applications for the job as arts dean.
They screen the applications and make a
tentative choice, forwarding this to a group of
higher-ups who either approve or give the old
thumbs down to the selection.
Now the committee is supposed to have two
student reps, senate decided earlier.
And someone later decided these two student
reps would be selected from the group of 23
students reps already sitting on the faculty
committees.
The AUS has protested, and rightly, that this
is an attempt to remove the selection process
further from the eyes of the students.
It tends to obstruct that fabled student
input, they say.
Well we say they're caught in the old
situation of accepting the administration's general
idea of what should be done while fighting it out
on the specific points.
In short, they're ignoring the real question.
Which is? says a little voice from the wings.
Which is that the dean should be elected by
students and faculty at large.
Now its no secret that the appointment of
dean is totally a political appointment.
Academic credentials aren't of the highest
import in this position.
Its really an administrative position which, if
we're going to make some great sweeping
statement anyway, shouldn't have the power it
currently holds.
Now, says that little voice, that might create
problems for people wanting the dean's job but
not wanting to indicate they're ready to vacate
their present jobs.
Tough shit.
Dean selection should be an open process,
and if someone is so chicken-livered about their
current job they we don't want their little
backroom pussy-footing tactics used in the dean's
office.
So hey out there, arts undergraduate society,
why not change your concept of involvement?
Don't try to get the best possible involvement
under the old administration-style system.
Push for what we really want.
And if you want specific ideas — try this.
Elect your two reps to the committee and let
them bring the list of applicants forward.
Then solicit other applications from across
the campus and country and hold your own
elections for dean.
Who knows? Jim Laxer is up for a job at the
moment. Robin Matthews might like the job. Or
better yet, someone here at UBC that students
and faculty would want.
Let's not quibble about the details.
Instead, how about re-directing that energy
in a meaningful way toward real change.
No one's fooled into thinking the administration will accept our alternative dean.
But it's going to start some people thinking.
And it's making the first move to a time when
dean election will be the norm, rather than a
gee'd-about novelty that somehow seems too far
wary to comtemplate.

Bust our
bottoms
If imitation be the sincerest form
of flattery, then we are indeed
flattered that Robert Bailey and
food services would attempt to
provide the campus with a semblance of McDonald's.
I am impressed with the change
in Bailey's attitude toward his
menu and, particularly, I am
impressed that he chose to listen to
the students who have complained
in vain for some time.
However, I hardly think that his
changes are going to revolutionize
food service on campus.
Bailey made a statement as
reported in The Ubyssey on Nov. 8,
that "If we put a McDonald's on
campus it wouldn't last a week
because we wouldn't offer half the
services students require."
We would bust our bottoms to
meet that challenge as we have on
university campuses in the U.S., as
we have in assuming the food
service responsibility at the new
Toronto Zoo, and as we are attempting to meet new food service
challenges wherever opportunities
present themselves.
The "traditional" McDonald's is
changing face. Ifi some locations
we now sell beer, sandwiches, a
variety of hot foods, popcorn and
an array of dessert items.
Our dining facilities are designed
to suit a variety of needs and atmospheres.
We are most prepared to accept
Bailey's challenge to serve the
campus with the menu, facilities
and services that the campus
demands.
It is unfortunate, as it usually is,
in this type of situation that Bailey
has erred in some of his information about McDonald's,
including our product
specifications, our labor practices,
and the reasons for our success.
Most importantly he has
ignorantly attacked our quality of
food which, in this instance, is
hilarious as we see quality as one
of the major food service problems
on campus today.
Even while he attempts to
challenge our quality, I would love
to compare publicly our product
specifications and our nutritional
value to his to ascertain who uses
his suggestions for "TVP" (a meat
additive), other additives, extenders, fillers, binders and so
forth. Bailey should know that our
quality standards are the highest
in our industry.
Not everyone likes our food but
that is a matter of choice, not
quality. What choice does the
campus have?

Congratulations to somebody on
your staff for printing the article
on sports by Paul Hoch. My faith in
your (my?) paper had reached an
all-time low as I found daily the
most exciting morsel of journalism
was only the Blankstein hassle.
However, the Friday sports
article was excellent. Subsequent
articles of this calibre may at least
reaffirm the belief that somebody

Israeli
Everybody's happy. There is
peace in Israel, ( I mean
Palestine). The U.N. at last has
brought justice to the Middle East.
(What was it they did in November
1947?)
The Jews are' dead or dying.
(Nobody liked them). The Jews are
gone or going, and the land is being
returned to the rightful owners.
(Where did we hear that before?)
Where are the Jews going? The
U.N. is sending them back to the
ovens where they belong. A vote
was taken, the General Assembly
reached a verdict. Eight-seven oil
thumbs went down sending Israel
back to Dachau where she was
born.
(It's truly amazing what
democracy can accomplish when
used properly!)
Everybody's happy. Now we see
Jerusalem filled with the smiling
faces of Palestine children. Daddy
at last can stay home with the
family after years of absence when
he was out bombing with the boys.
(I thought Daddy was a carpet
salesman in Beirut.)
Everybody's happy. The P.L.O.
(not the former Pistol Lugging
Ogres) has become quite
respectable. It has lately become
associated with that praiseworthy
organization, the United Nations.
You might even say that Arafat
and Waldheim have become blood
brothers.
It is comforting to know that the
government of Palestine has fallen
into such capable hands. Surely the
years of constant bombings,
murders and assassinations has
left the P.L.O. fully qualified for
the job. At least the U.N. seems to
think so!

South
By FRED FLETCHER
DURHAM,   N.C.   (Staff)   —
"It can't be true."
This thought lingers in the
minds of many here, still stunned by the tidal wave of shock
that swept across the nation in
wake of news that President
John F. Kennedy had been
assassinated.
Duke is a divided university;
divided into those who disliked
the late president and opposed
his civil rights program and
those who worshipped him,
partly for that same program.
But they were united in
shock and shame by the
tragedy of an assassin's bullet.
Shock that this senseless
atrocity had occurred at all —
and shame that it had occurred
in the South.
And there Vas sorrow.
More than 1,500 students
braved driving rain to crowd
into Duke Chapel for a special
memorial service Saturday.
Many wept during the short
service.
Much of the student council
felt special ties with the young
president. Some were members
of the youth brigade that worked so hard to elect Mr. Kennedy in 1960.
A number of students left
for Washington — 300 miles
away — on Sunday to attend
the funeral services.

Duke, and the game itself —

About 500 persons heard
Professor Robert Rankin say
the growing intolerance in the
U.S. lay behind the assassination.
Rankin, a member of the
president's commission on civil
rights, said he watched intolerance grow into hatred as he
toured the country in the past
year.
It has come to be that we
(Americans) love to declare
anyone who disagrees with us
a "Commie" or a "Fascist", he
said.
"Americans must strive to
wipe out this intolerance — to
strive for liberty under the law.

NEW YORK (Staff) — The
assassination of President Kennedy at first caused disbelief,
then horror and then agonized
silence.
Radios told people of the
news. People were crowded
around in little clusters listening.
"Please God, no," cried one
girl.
People sat and stood stunned,
it couldn't happen here, today,
1963, said  students.
Everything waa shocked to a
halt. Flags, fell to half staff and
church bells tolled, People
prayed.
Broadway theatres closed
and much of Times Square was
dark.
Friday night's city of eight
million was subdued. Christmas lighting was off. Weekend
events were cancelled.
Dazed and disbelieving
strangers talked in cafes and on
streets. There were many emotional outbursts of anguished
horror and anger.
All felt a personal loss.
There was anger at society
and the assassin.
Radios and TVs blared solid
news, later church and classical music with latest news reports and no commercials.
The Saturday New York
Times ran 15 ad free pages on
Kennedy.
And the dull rainy day was
symbolic of the city's feeling.
It's pace is slowed, its tone
muted and there is little pre-

SUB okayed
but fee hike
just misses
A record turnout of voters have come out strongly in
favor of the Student Union Building.
But they turned down by less than 300 votes a second
referendum to raise the AMS fee by $5 to finance the $3.8-
million building.
In results tabulated late
Monday 75 per cent of the
record 7,187 turnout endorsed
the building. A two-thirds
majority was required to pass
both referendums.
Student leaders hailed the
results as an unexpected and
overwhelming vote of confidence in the building.
SUB planning chairman
Dean Feltham said: "I felt we
wouldn't   make   it   on   either
vote.
elections  early in February,"
he said.
"I'm quite sure it will pass
easily now that we've got a
mandate on the building itself."
The record vote was nearly
50 per cent of student enrolment, surpassing by nearly
2,000 votes ihe highest turnout on an AMS issue.
Voting was spread over two
days—Friday and Monday—because of the death Friday of
U.S. President John F. Kennedy.
Eleven years ago on this day and date The Ubyssey
covered the intense shock and sorrow that was almost
universally felt on campus after the assassination of U.S.
president John F. Kennedy. The paper had put out a one-page
extra the day before but it was in this issue that it really
excelled in its reporting.
This issue also covers the approval by referendum of
construction of the Student Union Building. SUB was actually

Fish executive
nominated for
UBC chancellor
The UBC Alumni Association has
nominated fishing executive
Donovan F. Miller, the head Boy
Scout in B.C., for election as UBC
chancellor.
Miller, president and general
manager of the Canadian Fishing
Company Ltd., graduated from
UBC in commerce in 1947 and has
since served on the UBC senate
and board of governors. He also is
currently president of the B.C.Yukon council of the Boy Scouts of
Canada.
The current chancellor, Mr.
Justice- Nathan Nemetz, chief
justice of the B.C. Supreme Court,
has said he will not run for a second
term as chancellor because of his
work load as chief justice.
The chancellor, essentially the
university's figurehead leader, is
chairman of the convocation. He
also is a member of the UBC senate
and board of governors and is
responsible for social functions
such as greeting distinguished
visitors to the university.
Nominations for chancellor close
Monday. If another candidate is
nominated an election by the UBC
convocation will be held in
February.
A spokesman for the registrar's
office said Monday no one has yet
been officially nominated for the
position.
A candidate must be nominated
by at least seven eligible electors.
Under the Universities Act, the
convocation comprises the
chancellor, faculty, senate,
graduates and anyone whose name
is added to the convocation roll by
the senate.
In addition to his other positions
Miller is a past president of the
Alumni Association and the
Fisheries Council of Canada.

HALIFAX (CUP) — The
president, vice-president and the
board of governors of Dalhousie
University are being sued by
Dalhousie professor Bruno
Dumbrowski for acting without
proper jurisdiction in denying him
tenure.
Dumbrowski charged in a
complaint before the Nova Scotia
supreme court, that president
Henry Hicks and vice-president W.
A. Mackay had acted in excess of
their jurisdiction in refusing him
tenure without placing the question
and recommendations of the
tenure committee of the faculty of
-.arts and science before the board
of governors.
- The arts and science faculty had
voted unanimously April 6 to
support his tenure application.
Dumbrowski, a holder of the
Copernicus medal for academic
excellence in Poland, is seeking
reinstatement in the classics
department and damages for nonrenewal of his contract.
The association also nominated
seven people for the four convocation senate seats. Convocation
senators cannot be faculty
members.
The association candidates are:
Monica Angus, past president of
the B.C. Registered Nurses
Association and currently on
senate; B.C. Supreme Court
Justice John Bouck; Beverly
Field, past president of the Alumni
Association and a current member
of the board of governors and
senate;
Betsy Lane, currently on senate;
Charles Ovans, retired general
secretary of the B.C. Teacher's
Federation; Peter Sharp, retired
Royal Bank executive and a past
president of the University Club
and the Alumni Association; and
lawyer Ben Trevino, currently on
the senate and the board.
The convocation senators also
will be elected in February.

At Canadian universities
Secret BoG meetings favored
OTTAWA (CUP) — Only 55.4 per
cent of Canada's universities and
colleges feel it is necessary to hold
their board of governors meetings
in secret.
The remaining boards either
hold completely open meetings, or,
in most cases, reserve the right to
close the meetings to observers
and the press if issues of a "confidential" nature such as tenure of
hiring are being discussed.
This information was revealed in
a survey of 56 post secondary institutions done for Canadian
University Press by the
Association of Universities and
Colleges of Canada.
The percentage of universities
holding open board meetings
varied widely between different
sections of the country.
Ontario led the way with a full 62
per cent of its institutions holding
open meetings. This figure would
.have been higher if institutions
such as small religious colleges
and the Royal Military College had
not been included in the survey.
Guelph, York, Queen's and
McMaster were the only major
universities in Ontario that stated
they held closed board meetings.
The Maritimes placed a poor last
in the survey with only 9.1 per cent
of the responding universities
holding open meetings. The 9.1 in
this case was only one university,
the University of New Brunswick.
Quebec has open meetings in 56
per cent of its universities. Three
English language universities
replied to the survey and of them,
only Bishops University in Len-
noxville, held closed meetings.    .
Six French language universities
replied and these were split, three
open and three closed. The
University of Quebec interestingly
had open meetings on two of its
reporting campuses and closed on
the other two.
In the four western provinces 40
per cent of the institutions had
open meetings. In Manitoba, as in
Quebec, the responding schools
were split between open and closed
meetings. In the city of Winnipeg
alone two schools, the University of
Manitoba and St. John's College,
hold open meetings, while two
other schools, the University of
Winnipeg and St. Paul University,
are closed.
None of the universities from
B.C., Nova Scotia, Prince Edward
Island or Newfoundland reported
in the survey held open meetings.
Although. UBC's board has
traditionally met in secret, it's new
composition under the recently
passed Universities Act could
possibly change the situation. For
the first time students are running
for the board (for two positions)
and many of the candidates are
campaigning for open board
meetings.
In addition, observers hope the
NDP government's appointments
to the board will be progressive
enough to support open meetings.
In Saskatchewan, only St.
Thomas More College, a small
affiliate of the University of
Saskatchewan in Saskatoon, held
open meetings.
No figures are available from
past years to show whether or not
this initiates a trend to more open
board meetings, but it is known
that some universities have
recently switched to a more open
policy.
At the University of Calgary, for
example, it was only last year that
pressure from students and the
student newspaper was successful
'Gov't prevented radical's hiring'
TORONTO (CUP) — NDP
education critic Jim Foulds has
.accused Ontario education
minister Thomas Wells of intervening in the Ontario Institute
for Studies in Education (OISE)
decision not to hire radical
Canadian sociologist John Seeley.
The charge came after Wells
unwittingly revealed to the Ontario
legislative assembly that he informed the OISE director "one or
two prominent educators in this
province" advised Wells that
Seeley should not be hired.
Wells' admission followed urging
from Foulds that the education
minister ensure an independent
review board be set up to in
vestigate why Seeley wasn't appointed at the institute.
OISE's board of governors
decided Tuesday not to set up an
independent review body, but to
conduct the review itself.
Wells told the assembly he had
received "private calls" about six
months ago from one or two
prominent educators indicating
"they thought it would be bad for
OISE if John Seeley was appointed
there."
"I did communicate this information to the director, because
these were very respected
educators of this province."
However, Wells refused to
disclose   who   the   prominent
educators were or the nature of the
telephone calls he received.
"I don't know if you understand
the importance of what you have
just said," Foulds said to the
education minister in the
legislature. "What you have said is
that you intervened."
Wells also said he received a
copy of a letter "from someone
again at another university," indicating that Seeley was a "controversial figure" in academic
circles.
OISE director Robert Jackson
rejected the unanimous sociology
department choice of both faculty
members and students to hire
Seeley.
Earth info radio beam
to hit stars in 25,974
ARECIBO, Puerto Rico (CUP)
— Earth scientists have beamed a
powerful and complex radio
message into space in an effort to
communicate with other
civilizations.
The signal was broadcast for a
"three minute interval last weekend
from a radio telescope here. The
message contains information
about who we are and where we
live, and includes a careful
description of the chemical
composition of life on earth.
" The signal was by far the most
powerful ever beamed from earth.
Nose off
ALEXANDRA (CUP/ZNS) — A
Virginia man has been charged
with felonious assault after he
allegedly bit off half the nose of a
security guard who had asked him
to lower the volume on his stereo
set.
Theodore Oo, 23, was taken into
custody after he reportedly attacked Dewey Cotton, a private
guard in an apartment building.
According to police, Cotton
knocked on Oo's door and asked
him to lower the volume of his
record player. Without warning,
police say, Oo attacked and beat
Cotton, and then bit the right half
of Cotton's nose off.
Asked later why he did it, Oo is
quoted as saying he was simply
sick and tired of being told to turn
down the noise level of his stereo.
It was aimed at a cluster of stars
known as "Messier 13", a group of
300,000 suns located on the edge of
our Milky Way galaxy.

Bible lives —undercover
in opening the board meetings.
While recent figures are not
available it is known that many
boards are also becoming more
"open" by the fact that students
are now being included on them.
In 1965, 56 university or college
boards were surveyed and found
that none allowed any student representatives. When the survey was
repeated in 1970, 59 boards were
surveyed and 28 of them allowed
student reps. This representation
was by no means substantial as
there were only 63 out of 1,488
board members.

ST. JOHN'S (CUP) - An undercover evangelist has been
discovered working at Memorial
University in Newfoundland.
"Helping to share Christ with
other people," is the avowed
mission of Nokeke Shim, who
arrived here in September from
Toronto as part of an expansion
into the Atlantic provinces by a
religious inter-denominational
student organization, the
Navigators of Canada.
According to Shim the purpose of
the Navigators, who were
established in 1930, is to "help
fulfill the great commission of
Jesus Christ."
The Navigators apparently did a
survey of Atlantic colleges and
discovered four universities —
Memorial, University of Prince
Edward Island, Mount Allison in
New Brunswick —and Acadia in
Nova Scotia would be most suitable
for their purposes.
The universities were chosen
partly because their position was
"strategic,"      Shim      claims,
although the size of the universities
and the religious backgrounds
were also taken into account.
He says the group has people
working for them in the military,
local church groups and the
general community, but
numerically they are concentrated
on campuses across the country.
Shim is paid by church groups and
private donations to work full time
at training others to do his kind of
work.
Shim says he doesn't have an
office but operates rather by sitting in cafeterias talking to
students about Jesus.
Shim was upset when he realized
that a story was going to be written
about him and explained that he
was working "undercover" and it
would make his work more difficult if students knew who he was
when he was talking to them.
When it was made clear to him
that the story was going to be
written he asked if it could be filed
away in a drawer somewhere and
maybe printed in a year's time.

Officials say war huts fire safe
By DAN MILLER
Second World War huts on the
west side of the UBC campus are
slowly being replaced, but the 100
remaining continue to deteriorate.
Says James Kennedy, director of
the computer centre and chairman
of the senate committee on
academic building needs: "The
huts occupied by parts of
oceanography and education are
slated to be demolished when their
new facilities are built. Until it all
gets built, the huts have to stay."
The biology building north wing
under construction will house the
institute of biology.
"The immediate space
requirements are so great, when
one group moved out of a hut, it
wasn't disposed of, the hut just
appeared on another site. It takes a
strong-minded person to say, you
can't use the huts anymore,"
Kennedy said in an interview
Monday.
Kennedy's March 1974 committee report to the UBC senate
said $45 million would be necessary
to fill the space requirements of the
university. "But given the fact no
one will send $45 million, the huts
will stay," he said.
The first huts were brought on
campus in 1946 and 1947. The army
used them for several years before
during the war.
Occupants like the huts because
they are flexible, and one can tack
something on the wall without
written permission.
Huts are occupied by the
faculties of education and science,
by the departments of
oceanography, sociology and
psychology and also act as private
room for graduate students and as
undergraduate centres.
The 30-year-old buildings have
remained unpainted for years
because they are temporary
structures, says Neville Smith,
director of physical plant. Some
huts are covered with tar paper.
Roofs constantly leak according to
their occupants, and the buildings
get very hot in the winter.
Smith said a policy of "minimum
maintenance is followed on the
buildings. We have often less than
a year's notice on the replacement
of the buildings, so it doesn't pay to
paint them. The wood rots in some
cases."
J. A. Kamburoff, head of the
planning division of physical plant,
said there "no plans to change or
remove any of the buildings for two
or three years, probably more.
"We all know how ugly they are,
but we can't get rid of them."
When asked if the deteriorating
buildings were a fire hazard, both
assistant fire chief Jack McKay
and fire prevention officer H. A.
Crawford of the UBC fire department said: "Not any more than
any other building on campus."
McKay said it would take only
seven minutes for a hut to go up in
flames, but that entrance and fire
extinguishers follow provincial fire
regulations, and that officers of the
fire department check the
buildings several times during the
year.
Asked if the condition of the
buildings was a detriment to fire
safety, McKay replied: "This is all
relative." Asked if he meant safety
of buildings was relative, McKay
said, "Yes."
Three or four huts burned many
years ago," he said. The last major
fire on campus was at the Triumf
cyclotron in one of the circuits.
Physical plant head Smith also
said the huts were "not a fire
hazard any more than any other
building." He also said seven
minutes was long enough for a
person to escape from a burning
hut.
J. C. Page, head of the design
division of physical plant, was
asked if the small space between
the huts, 15 feet in most cases, with
electrical wires going over the
roofs, was not a fire hazard.
"That's true. Ability to control
spread of a fire is controlled by the
distance of buildings. But the space
must be wide enough for access by
the fire department or I'm sure
they would have said something
about it."
Roy Taylor, director of the
botanical garden, whose renovated
office is located in one of the huts,
said he would rather be in the hut
than in the third storey of a new
PANGO-PANGO (UNS) — Local
capitalist Ferd Vice announced
today he would be cutting off all
financial aid to the island's
beleaguered press at the end of the

money, there won't be a paper next
week."

Mullins' travelling show returns
By CARL VESTERBACK
Dr. Peter Mullins and his
travelling medicine show are back.
Playing before smallish crowds
Friday and Saturday night, the
incredible barnstorming 'Birds
and their Australian mentor
surfaced on top of the Canada West
men's basketball standings with
two wins over the University of
Alberta Golden Bears.
Friday night UBC stormed to an
81-65 decision and on Saturday the
'Birds managed to outlast a
stubborn Bears team 70-64.
Friday's game was close most of
the way. The bears displayed some
fine outside shooting, but the 'Birds
managed to stay close on foul
shots. The lead changed hands
several times until about six
minutes into the final half.
At this point, Blake Iverson,
hampered throughout the match
with a leg injury, exploded for
three straight baskets from long
range. At the same time, 'Birds'
centre Bob Dunlop blocked two
Alberta shots in a row in the UBC
defensive zone.
The 'Birds established their lead
for good.
Ralph Turner began an incredible streak of outside shooting
which was largely responsible for
the 18-point lead which UBC built
at this time.
The Bears never recovered.
Their previously well-disciplined
offence deteriorated sadly, passes
began going astray, and their
strength under the boards
collapsed. Several first string
Alberta players, in penalty trouble
early, began to foul out.
Mullins   was   almost   happy
SPOR TS
(something that rarely happens)
with the UBC effort.
"Our play in the second half was
excellent for this early point of the
season," he said. "We improved a
great deal over our performance in
Lethbridge."
The 'Birds displayed much
better balance in their scgring
distribution. Turner finished with
22 points, his best performance so
far, and Steve Pettifer had 20, half
of them on free throws. Randy
Allan, filling in well for Blake
Iverson when the latter's injury
finally forced him from the game,
contributed 12 points.
Saturday's game was much
closer. Alberta took an eight:point
lead early in the game, but UBC
caught up and established an eight-
point lead of their own which lasted
until late in the second half.
Alberta, in ^i desperate effort,
closed the gap to within four points
with two minutes left, but fell
short.
The difference in the game was
UBC's new, well-balanced,attack
and an edge in rebounding
strength. Pettifer is no longer
carrying the major part of the
scoring load for the 'Birds.
He led Saturday's game with 13
points, but was closely followed by
Allan with 12, Turner and Mike
McKay with 11, and Chris Trumpy
and Ed Lewin, both with 10.
McKay, looking vastly improved
and more confident than last year,
took in many important rebounds.
Mullins was pleased with the
performance of his bench.

UBC rugby 'Birds
dump Rowers 40-6
By TOM BARNES
Propelled by crisp passing and
outstanding team work the 'Bird
rugby team dumped the Rowing
Club side 40-6 in first division
action at Thunderbird Stadium
Saturday.
The Rowing Club fielded a good
enough scrum but its backfield left
a lot to be desired. If the 'Birds had
any weakness it wasn't serious to
draw the attention of any of the
spectators.
Despite the wet field (and consequently a slippery ball), a wide-
open running game featuring
many accurate passes typified the
'Birds offense. UBC wasted no
time in taking complete charge of
the game, the Rowing Club rarely
getting the ball out of there own for
the entire first half.
In spite of the deft running and
accurate passing of Mel Reeves the
'Birds were unable to go over for
the score.
At 20 minutes, prop Chris
Hinkson bulled over for the
opening score and scrum half
Preston Wiley connected for his
first of six converts. UBC had a 6-0
lead.
After the try the Rowing Club
drove into 'Bird territory as UBC
seemed to let down slightly.
It was Ro Hindson running well
and dominating lineouts who led
the 'Bird surge back up the field.
Dave Whyte capped the drive off
with some spectacular broken field
running and put the ball right
between the post on the second
'Bird try. Wiley had ho trouble
converting and the 'Birds carried a
12-0 lead at the half.
In the second half the 'Birds
opened with the same type of action with which they closed the
first. Wingers Will McKenzie and
Rob Jenkins, and centre Whyte all
made good rushes.
But it was John Richmond of the
Rowing Club who opened the
scoring in the half. He connected
on a 25-yard penalty kick at eight
minutes and another from 20 at 12
minutes to pull the Rowing Club to
within six points.
Wiley engineered a fine play that
culminated with McKenzie going
over for a try. Hindson missed the
convert, but the 'Birds now led 16-
6.
From then on it was as if the
'Birds could score at will. Reeves
started a good play with a pass to
Hindson who sent the ball over to
McKenzie who went in for another
try.
-■• Frank Carson capitalized on a 2-
on-1 situation with a beautiful pass
over to Hindson who went in for the
score on a 30-yard run.
Mel Reeves fell on a loose ball in
the Rowing Club end zone for the
final try of the game.
Wiley converted each time to
total 12 points for the afternoon.
The game ended with the 'Birds up
40-6 and worth every point of their
lead.
Thunderbird coach Donn Spence
said that he felt it was the best
team effort the 'Birds had come up
with this year. He was pleased with
the play of the players from the
second team who filled in for the
game.
It would be tough to name individual standouts for such a
performance. One could talk about
the Hindsons, the Reeves, the
Wileys or the McKenzies bufwould
not be doing justice to the Harivels
and the Chungs who turned in their
usual outstanding but unspectacular games. Without a
doubt it was the best game of the
season for the 'Birds.
The next action for the 'Birds
will be here at UBC against Ex-
Briso. As the soccer 'Birds will be
using Thunderbird Stadium for,
their 2 p.m. encounter with the*
Simon Fraser University Clansmen, the rugby game will be held
at 2:30 p.m. in nearby Arthur Lord
field.
ALLAN  ... strong games
well filling in for Turner and
Iverson," he said.
Iverson, the 'Birds' captain,
didn't play in Saturday's game.
"He has strained knee
ligaments," Mullins said. "He
probably won'tbe back for three or
four weeks." The situation isn't
critical, however. Allan filled in
more than adequately for Iverson,
and Iverson wasn't-missed a great
deal in Saturday's game.
Results of weekend play left the

In women's action, UBC
Thunderettes steamrollered
University of Alberta Pandas 56-38
Friday night and 66-34 on Saturday.
The Thunderettes are a great
team — there can be no argument.
sAlberta was never close to winning
either game.  UBC  dominated
every phase of the game:
rebounding, shooting, passing,
running, everything.
One player stands out on the
UBC team. Carol Turney is the
best woman play I have ever seen.
In every skill of the game she
transcends everyone else on the
floor.
"She's a better player than most
men," coach Susan Evans said.
"But I'd like to point out that the
whole team is playing excellent
basketball. I've never coached a
team with better instincts than this
one."
The truth of that statement was
ably demonstrated both nights.
The Thunderettes consistently
initiate great passing plays which
are a delight to watch. They seem
to be able to pass to an open player
without looking.
I'll just stop foaming at the
mouth for a moment to relate a few
details of the games. Carol Turney
led UBC in both games with 15
points on Friday and 24 points on
Saturday. Nora Ballantyne turned
in strong performances under the
boards, and Kathy Burdett was
sharp in directing the potent UBC
offence. All the players played well
on defence, but Louise Zerbe was
especially good.
It's hard to imagine the Thunderettes being even better ;than
they are.

Football stays in tough league
BySTULYSTER
The UBC Thunderbirds football
team will remain in the tough
Canada West University league
next year despite mutterings from
coach Frank Smith that the squad
should look elsewhere for competition following its dismal 1-8
season.
The Men's Athletic Committee,
which calls the shots for men's
extramural sports, has decided to
leave the 'Birds at the mercy of
other Canada West teams for
another year. x
In a telephone interview with
The Ubyssey Monday, athletic
director Bus Phillips said Smith
has been informed of the committee's decision.
"We (the Athletic Committee)
discussed the matter at length last
Thursday night and couldn't justify
the team pulling out of the league.

Runners finish season
By CEDRIC TETZEL
The UBC cross-country team
rounded off another season last
Saturday at the Pacific North-West
championships.
The team came up with wins
both in the men's and the women's
sections of the UBC-sponsored
event.
• The UBC women finished first,
fourth, fifth and seventh in a field
of eight. Shiela Currie came in first
followed by Maureen Crowley of
Vancouver Olympic Club. Krista
Schelsiger from South Fraser
Track Club took third place.
She was followed by a UBC
twosome of Leslie Stubbs and
Linda Rossetti. Bev Cox of
University of Victoria, Shiela
Hutcheon of UBC and Sue Southern
who was not running for anyone in
particular rounded off the field.
The Opens Men's race had a
larger field of 33 runners. UBC
placed first with runners coming in
first, third, fourth, sixth and
eighth.
John Wheeler of UBC came in
first, nine seconds in front of ex-
UBC runner Ken Elmer who ran
for Richmond Kajaks. They were
followed by BUI Smart and Chris
White, both from UBC. John
Martens of the Kajaks took fifth
place, followed by another two
UBC runners, Duncan Klett and
John Currie.
The UBC men's team finished
first in front of Vancouver Olympic
Club and Lion's Gate Road Runners. The UBC women took the
uncontested women's title.
In the high schools event Vancouver Technical school finished
first in the boy's section, while
McNair led the field in the girl's
race.
The weather was miserable and
the course muddy. In other words,
it was a beautiful day for crosscountry running. In fact some
runners were so carried away they
decided to get themselves lost. On
the whole all the runners had a
good time and have the tired
muscles, heavy panting and
muddy backsides to prove it.
"The committee felt that the
team is showing signs of competitiveness and that it would be a
mistake to leave now."
He attributed the solid base that
Smith is forming under the team to
this optimistic attitude. And the
team did have some
unquestionably spirited efforts to
their credit this year, which could
have gone their way if they had
gotten some breaks.
But it is impossible not to consider the record of the team since it
rejoined the Canada West
University Athletic Association 4-
1/2 years ago. In 40 outtings
against Canada West teams since
September 1970, they have a 5-35
won-lost record. They are in the
midst of a 20-game losing streak
with their last league win on Oct.
13,1972 when the 'Birds edged the
University of Calgary 10-6. The
'Birds' victory this year was in
exhibition play.
In their nine games this season
they were outscored 341-89 for an
average of 10 points-for per game
and 38 points against.
The average weight for the
'Birds offensive line this year was
•210 pounds compared with as much
as 245 and 250 pounds for the farm
boys who stock the Prairie teams.
The defensive front four average
around 200 pounds.
Given the fact that any football
game is won or lost on the line and
you probably have the biggest
reason why the 'Birds don't belong
in the league. How do you expect to
keep a guy that outweighs you by
50 pounds from dusting you aside
and going in with intensions of
making a pretzel out of your
quarterback?
How do you expect to go in and
make a pretzel out of their quarterback when the guy blocking
outweighs you by 50 pounds?
The result of the mismatches on
the line show up terribly on the
scoreboard. A 63-0 loss to
Saskatchewan, 61-0 loss to the
University of Calgary, 46-0 and 53-
10 losses to Alberta and 41-15 loss to
the University of Manitoba are all
to obvious examples of this.
The three games that were close
are only examples of the players'
efforts. An assistant coach of the
team, when asked why the team
did so well against Manitoba in the
last game of the season which UBC
lost 24-18, cited the fact that the
Manitoba team had left that
morning from Winnipeg to play an
afternoon game here.
That would mean the team would
have to get up well before 5 a.m.
for the three-hour flight plus two
hour time difference to arrive at
the stadium two hours before game
time.
The 'Birds did come up with a
fine effort, but when it takes that
sort of handicap on the other team
to make the game close, that is
another sign the team doesn't
belong in the league.\
The teams that the 'Birds realize
their full potential against are ones
like the Seattle Cavaliers, Royal
Military College and the Whidbey
Islanders (Seattle).
In fact, it is these teams which
have provided UBC with the best
competition over the last couple of
years. The 'Birds have a 4-4 record
in exhibition play since.they
rejoined the CWUAA in 1970.
Assistant Athletic Director Buzz
Moore is sticking to his guns as fi.
as his position is concerned.
"I've been«juoted before by your
newspaper as saying that we're
only trying io represent the
student's views on Canadian
content on campus. It was student
pressure that made us commit
ourselves to the CWUAA in the first
place four years ago."
It is a pity that the decisionmaking force in this matter is
subject to such heavy political
forces. They have the students to
answer to as well as the other
teams in the league who aren't
concerned about the internal
factors of any decision made.
If the athletic committee is
serving the interests of the
students, they should serve the
interests of the students participating in the sport in question.
But the way it looks now with the
team playing under the same
conditions next year, the team
should have the same sort of
season despite the efforts of
coaches and players.
It's a mighty shame.
Hockey splits games
By RICHARD SAXTON
A two-hour team meeting
"closed to the press" apparently
gave the UBC hockey team the life
they needed to tie the University of
Calgary Dinosaurs 3-3 in overtime
action Sunday in Calgary.
'Bird coach Bob Hindmarch said
he was pleased with the team's
improvement following its 6-2 loss
to the University of Alberta Golden
Bears Saturday afternoon.
It was following the loss that the
'Birds had the meeting in Edmonton's Chateau Lacombe Hotel.
"We talked things out in Edmonton then played a hell of a
game in Calgary" Hindmarch
said.
Dino's coach Gord Cowan, not
wanting to settle with the tie, said
"we decided not to play sudden
death prior to the game so B.C.
could make their flight but I would
have preferred to have the game
decided."
Calgary picked up two wins
against the Saskatchewan Huskies
Friday and Saturday with a third
period brawl in the second game.
Calgary opened the scoring against
UBC on Sunday at 8:44 of the first
period on a goal by Ricki
Alexander only one second after
Dan Peck's double minor roughing
penalty had expired.
In the second period, Peter
Moyls tied the game at 2:53 with
assists to Steve Davis and Dan
Peck. Shayne Tarves put the Dinos
ahead at 16:29 only to have UBC's
Gerry Bend even the score at 19:25
from Peck and Sperling.
Peter Moyls got his second goal
of the game at 7:41 of the third
period set up by Osaki and Davis as
'Birds took a 3-2 lead. Jim Setters
finished the scoring at 15:33 on a
hard shot from the slot that beat
UBC's Vic LeMire to tie the game
3-3.
Tension mounted as the consistently poor refereeing saw Red
Hare receive a delay of game .
penalty at 17:29 for knocking the
puck into the stands. In addition
Haire was alloted a misconduct
penalty.
There was time for only one
overtime period because the 'Birds
had to catch a plane back to
Vancouver. In the game UBC took
nine of 16, minor penalties and
outshot Calgary 18-37.
On Saturday in Edmonton, the
hockey 'Birds didn't get on tract
until half way through the game
but by that time it was too late as
the Golden Bears had a 5-1 lead.
Having to get up at 5 a.m. to fly to
Edmonton then play an afternoon
hockey game proved to be a bit
much for the not-so^early 'Birds.
Defencemen Brian Penrose and
Arnie Pederson missed the early
flight and came later just in time
for the game.
Albert Halliwell, Hindmarch's
coaching partner said "the early
trip hurt physically."
"We were outhustled in the first
half but killed all our penalties and
scored on our only power for the
first time," Halliwell said.
The University of Alberta made
it 3-0 by the 12:40 mark of the first
period on goals by Steve McKnight,
John Simkin and John Horcoff.
Gerry  Bend   put   UBC   on   the
scoreboard at 16:21 of the first
period. Craig Styles and Oliver
Steward increased Alberta's lead
to 5-2 within six minutes of the start
of the second period.
It was even hockey for the later
part of the game. Bob Sperling
scored UBC's other goal at 14:22 of
the second from Bill Ennes and
Bruce Brill. The Golden Bears
topped off the scoring at 12:13 of
the third on a goal by Jim Of rim.
The two teams shared the six
minor penalties in a game which
saw little physical contact. Alberta
outshot the 'Birds 48-38.
Both UBC goaltenders Dave
Andrews and Vic LeMire, playing
in Edmonton and Calgary
respectively, had a good weekend.
Peter Moyls andiGerry Bend who
each got two goals also played well
for the hockey 'Birds last Saturday
and Sunday.      :
It's rumored -Hindmarch will
hold another team meeting prior to
the series against Saskatchewan
nest Friday and Saturday.
The games will be carried on
CITR-UBC radio live from
Saskatooon starting at 6 p.m.
(PST) on Friday and at 12 noon
(PST) on Saturday-
