Array Arts reps elected by mail
Elections of student representatives to arts faculty meetings are
completed, with 11 of a possible 23
positions filled.
Out of about 5,000 arts students,
17 ran for the 23 positions with
eight being filled by acclamation.
The elections were conducted by
registrar Jack Parnall on orders of
senate which refused to allow the
arts undergraduate society to
conduct them.
The AUS charged the registrar-
run elections would not permit
open discussion of the persons and
issues involved. The AUS said it
supports the principle of student
representation but maintains the
five per cent representation
granted arts students is tokenism.
Five of the new representatives
who spoke to The Ubyssey Wednesday. .
Economics      rep      Kathleen
Luscher said her nomination "just
sort of happened at a party."
Luscher said she doesn't care
one way or the other if students are
represented. "It doesn't matter to
me really whether I go to the
meetings or not," she said. "I'm
leaving the country in a few weeks
She said the AUS boycott was
pretty silly. "I don't really see how
it makes much difference."
Home economics rep Linda Fox
said she thinks there should be
more student representation. "Our
representation is tokenism really,"
she said. "But I believe we should
get our foot in the door now rather
than stand outside and holler."
Fox said she saw validity on both
sides of the boycott question. "But
it's better to make a step in the
right direction now," she said.
Fox attended the faculty meeting
on Monday. "Their world is
unreal,"   she   said.   "They   need
more than the 11 student reps that
there are. I hope all 11 will show
up." Fox said only five or six
students were at the meeting but
she was the only one who said
French department rep Ruth
Griffiths said she is not anti-
boycott. "I felt the boycott was
very confusing,1' she said.
"Somebody besides me was
running, so that gave the students
more choice."
Griffiths said it is a good idea to
have student representatives. "It's
better to have some representation
to see how it works, to give it a
chance," she said.
Griffiths said she is an apolitical
"I don't know how relevant
airing issues is," she said. "I'm a
representative concerning things
academic. I'm supposed to represent students in the French
department even though I may not
represent all of them."
Psychology rep Rod Borrie said
he didn't know if there should be
more student representatives. "It
is tokenism," he said. "But we
should see if it works and what we
can do with it rather than have no
reps at all."
Borrie said he ran on his own
initiative following a suggestion
from a friend. "I'd like to know
what's going on myself," he said.
"If we have chances to be reps, we
should take them."
Borrie said he attended the arts
faculty meeting Monday. "There
seemed to be a lot of inane
debating," he said. "I felt accepted." He said it is questionable

Advertising teaching vacancies
in Canadian academic periodicals
is a clumsy way to recruit faculty^.
English head Robert Jordan saia
Jordan spoke in response to
charges by Carleton University
English professor Robin Mathews
that he and two members of his
department conducted interviews
for 1974-75 job openings before the
positions were advertised in
Canadian academic publications
like University Affairs published
by the Association of Universities
and Colleges of Canada.
"Any applicant dependent on
University Affairs for a job would
be left in the lurch," Jordan said.
"Advertising in University Affairs
is not an end in itself. I can't place
the kind of monumental im-
portanceon it that Mathews does."
Jordan said his hiring practises
complied with UBC senate recommendations that job vacancies be
advertised in Canadian periodicals
The American-educated head
also defended his holding interviews for the vacant positions at
a Chicago modern languages
association convention in
December, 1973.
"One of the essential features of
MLA meetings is that it provides
facilities for interviews that we
don't have," he said. "It is not a
contradiction of senate policy."
Mathews first charged Jordan
with anti-Canadian hiring policies
in a Jan. 24 letter to UBC administration president Walter
Gage and education minister
Eileen Dailly. The letter, written
by Mathews and fellow Carleton
professor Mary-Jane Edwards,
referred to the English department
as "a department very heavily
controlled by non-Canadians and
Canadians of recent citizenship."
The letter said the Chicago interviews were held nearly a month
before an advertisement for a
person to fill a position in the
English department appeared in
University Affairs. Mathews and
Edwards also said they received
the February edition, in which the
ad appeared, on Jan. 22, seven
days after the Jan. 15 closing date
for receipt of applications.
1 In a Feb. 4 press release, Gage
said UBC follows a policy of advertising all faculty positions in
Canadian academic publications,
and said it is customary for UBC
heads and senior faculty to talk to
possible candidates for jobs when
attending meetings of learned
Arts dean Doug Kenny said at
that time an ad for an assistant
professor in the English department was submitted to University
Affairs Nov. 27, but the ad did not
appear until Jan. 22. He said he did
not know what could have happened.
University Affairs staffer Lynda
Woodcock told The Ubyssey
Wednesday the final deadline for
submission of ads for the January
edition was Nov. 27. She said the
University Affairs advertising
office received the UBC submission Nov. 29.
In a Feb. 14 letter to department
profs Jordan said he submitted the
ad to University Affairs Nov. 23.
He said Wednesday he submitted
the ad to Kenny's office to be
cleared and assumed it took
Kenny's office four days to process
the ad.  "
Kenny told The Ubyssey Wednesday such a submission would be.

to  the  publishers  of  University

He blamed the delay on the post

Gov't budget could hurt UBC
Existing UBC programs and facilities could
be cut back as a result of the provincial
government budget, UBC deputy president
Bill Armstrong said Wednesday.
Library services, the centre for continuing
education, part-time credit courses and class
sizes were cited by Armstrong as potential
affected areas.
The funds available to UBC from the
federal government will probably be about
half what the university requested, Armstrong said.
Although individual operating grants for
B.C.'s three universities have not been finally
determined UBC expects to receive the
$62,720,000 it was granted last year plus about
$6 million of the total $10 million increase
provided for the universities.
In his Feb. 11 budget speech premier Dave
Barrett said extra funds would be available to
the universities "if they wish to pioneer new
programs; if they wish to pioneer new services; if they wish to experiment with the
quarter system; if they wish to use their
professional schools on evenings, weekends
and fully during the summer months; if
(they) wish to go out to the community and
take their professional skills and professional
helps in a new form of education at the
community level. . ."
"The thing that's worrying us the most is
that Barrett has given us last year's budget
plus a cost of living allowance," Armstrong
"What he's not taking into account is that
we may have a 3,000 to 4,000 increase in
enrolment. He hasn't taken this into account."
Academic planning director Robert Clark
said less money is being offered "in real
terms" than in 1971-72.
Considering inflation and projected
enrolment increases, less money is offered
per student this year, he said.
Working in 1969 dollars the operating grant
for all three universities in the fiscal year
ending March 1, 1973 was $2,211 per unweighted student, Clark said.
In 1974, assuming a nine per cent inflation
rate, the operating grant per student is $2,076,
he said.
Assuming a 7.6 per cent inflation rate
makes the 1974 grant $2,104 per student, he
Clark said according to the figures for
weighted students (a category taking into
account the fact that some types of students
are alloted larger grants) the 1973 grant was
$1,219 per student.
Assuming a nine per cent inflation rate that
figure is $1,219 this year and assuming a 7.6
per cent inflation rate it is $1,235, Clark said.
He said the education department announced it was going to allow more teachers
to be hired to decrease the student teacher
ratio after the enrolment projections were
"I think we should apply for another grant
on the basis of that announcement," he said.
Armstrong rejected Barrett's suggestion
that universities go on a quarterly system;
teaching year round in four three-month
He quoted from an Ontario study, The
Organization of the Academic Year: "The
quarterly system, assuming the same fresh
men enrolment, is economically unattractive
under all operating conditions."
Armstrong said Simon Fraser University's
trimester system costs 20 per cent more per
student to operate than the system at UBC.
Under a quarterly system, in order to
balance enrolment over the four semesters
"you'd have to force students to turn up when
you want them," Armstrong sajd.
Armstrong admitted students would benefit
from some kind of year-round system.
The method allows them to pick their study
and money earning times and allows students
taking out loans to finish their education
quickly and repay the loans, he said.
"I think going straight through is a Godawful way to go to university," he said.
"I suppose the government would support
the cost of (a quarterly) system," Armstrong
"I suppose (Barrett) thinks it's politically
advantageous. It would cause me a great deal
of concern to take money and use it when I
know it's costing the taxpayer more. I guess
some of us still have ethics."
Armstrong said he was unable to find the
Ford Foundation study cited by Barrett which
apparently indicates that if universities went
on a quarterly system they could have a 25
per cent increase in capacity with only an 11
per cent increase in staff.
Deputy education minister Jack Fleming
said Wednesday it was not necessarily the
government's intention that the universities
should continue all their current programs.
"That's not necessarily the assumption the
government made in budgeting," he said.

how representative of students he
can be at all times.
Theatre department representative Gordon Long said he ran
because he is the only theatre
student with any political position.
Long is also president of the
theatre students association.
Long said some theatre
department faculty members
mentioned the position to him.
"They expected me to run because
I was the obvious person for it," he
Long said he didn't think all
theatre students had a chance to
come to know him or what he
stands for. "It seemed to me the
registrar running the election was
a bad way to do it," he said. "I
think five per cent is pretty shoddy,
it's tokenistic."
History representative John
Bailey said he ran because the
position was there. "Some friends
asked me," he said.
Bailey said he didn't support the
AUS boycott. "I don't consider the
AUS representative of student
opinion," he said. "I didn't think
the boycott was justified because
senate had decided already that
the registrar should run the
election. The registrar would have
been more fair than the AUS."
Bailey said he doesn't feel he

"The universities were asked to
bring their programs into a new
assessment of priorities.
"Unfortunately — well, not
unfortunately — that's a value-
laden word — fortunately or unfortunately, the province has no
opportunity to make any comment
on individual projects," he said.
When asked if the government
considered the projected
enrolment increase, Fleming said:
"The government was going on the
basis of the information provided
by the universities.
"There's no way you're going to
get me into an argument about
whether the money allocated was
sufficient — that's a matter for the
treasury," he said.
Administration president Walter
Gage has said most of UBC's
portion of the extra $10 million is
already committed to cover salary
increases for faculty and staff. The
increases went into effect last July
He said the increase for faculty
members averaged seven per cent,
considerably less than the 9.1 per
cent increase in the cost of living.
In his budget speech Barrett said
the government would be willing to
finance programs for working
people available only during
limited hours.
According to Armstrong both the
part-time credit courses and the
part-time non-credit courses will
suffer as a result of the budget.
"(Barrett) may in fact be
decreasing our community services," he said.
"As far as I can see we won't be
able to offer any more part-time
courses to adult students than we
did last year."
Armstrong said the university
has difficulty getting funds for the
centre for continuing education
which gives non-credit courses to
30,000 students a year.
Commenting on Barrett's
suggestion that programs be
organized where students go out
into the community and train
people on the spot Armstrong said:
"It's a good idea. We have much
more clinical training now than
people realize.
Armstrong admitted little
clinical training is involved in
engineering and law schools at
UBC but said "there's an attempt
being made to do this."
should have to report to anybody.
"I'm going to represent what I
think and not what the history
students association thinks," he
said. "I know the HSA ishot representative of student opinion."
Bailey claimed he could have
gotten many more than the five
required signatures on his
Bailey called the HSA
organizational meeting a farce.
"For undergrads to get together in

Consultants brought in
Pool getting more hired hands
The Alma Mater Society council
Wednesday approved $800 out of
AMS funds, and an additional
$15,000 of cover pool trust funds, to
pay consultants for the planned
covered swimming pool.
The $15,000 — taken from the
pool trust fund which is supported
by administration, community
grants and the $5 student fee — will
be used to pay for a function
programmer to advise what services the pool should incorporate.
The $800 will pay a consultant to
advise student representatives on
the joint administration-AMS pool
management committee, what sort
of management arrangement
should be undertaken for staff
working in the pool.
Several council members said
students can just as effectively do
the study and that the demand for
the  money  was  being   rammed
through council without notice.
However Doug Aldridge, former
AMS president and a pool committee member, told council
students could not do the survey in
the necessary time.
"The reason we want
professionals is that they can get a
study done in a week whereas
students could only do it in a
minimum of a month."
He said time is important
because the costs of building the
pool are increasing every month
and because the board of governors which will ratify the division
of costs between students and the
administration could make a
better deal for the administration
during the summer when students
are away.
He said the study will show if the
pool can generate enough money to
pay for maintenance.
Students will have to work out an
agreement with the administration
on maintenance which does not
give the administration excessive
control of the pool, said Aldridge.
Among the uses of the pool he
mentioned installing a three-foot
fan to provide wind for sailing
practice in small boats and a winch
to give instruction on getting up on
President Brian Loomes, who
said he was somewhat dubious of
these proposals, asked Aldridge if
there were any plans for installing
desert sands in the pool.
In other business council approved motions directing the Pit
manager not to sell South African
and Portugu,ese wines and Kraft
food products in the Pit after
current stocks are gone.
Discussions of the motions
centred on whether council has the
right to boycott these products.
Wilson and several others felt it is
a political decision which should be
left to individual students.
"There may be some question of
civil liberties if we stop selling
these wines," Wilson said.
But the majority agreed council
does have the right to institute a
boycott and that it is necessary to
do so to protect the rights of people
who Portugese and South African
governments and the Kraft corporation are oppressing.
"We have an interest in defending the rights of people all over
this world," said Jan Sandomirsky, arts undergraduate
society rep.
Coordinator Joanne Lindsay
told council the Pit management
had published a notice telling
students  against   the  boycott  to

Mopeds come to Vancouver
By JAKE van der KAMP
Are you looking for a means of two-wheeled
transportation but find bicycles too slow and
motorcycles too expensive?
The answer may well be a solex moped — a
combination of bicycle and motorcycle which
gets 200 miles to the gallon, is quiet, travels
at 25 miles per hour and costs under $250.
The only problem with mopeds come from
the provincial government which insists the
bikes are motorcycles and need the licensing,
insurance and mechanical requirements of a
Mopeds have been used for many years in
Europe where they are treated as bicycles
and used extensively in cities as a rapid
means of transportation.
The Solex moped, made in France, looks
exactly like a low-slung bicycle except it has a
motor, with 49 cubic centimeters of engine
space over the front wheel. To start it, you
pedal along and then push a little handle
which connects the motor to the front wheel
by way of a small pressure wheel.
The motor needs a little bit of help from the
pedals when going uphill, but on the flat it will
take you along from 25-30 m.p.h. without help.
Moped requirements in Europe are that
they have under 50 cubic centimeters of
engine space, be operable by pedals as well as
by motor, be kept under certain speed limits
and in some countries stay off the roads when
they can use bicycle paths.
Their use, as anyone who has been to
Europe can testify, has greatly decreased
traffic congestion in major cities.
But with the impending energy crisis and
rising concern over air pollution their biggest
asset is, of course, the small amount of fuel
they use.
Besides that, they're fun to ride.
But the provincial government is not encouraging their use. If you do buy a moped
you will find you need a helmet and if you are
under 25 will have to pay more than $40 for
Also you will have to equip your moped with
a brake light, a new headlight and an
illuminated license plate which will in turn
require a new battery. And you will not be
allowed to ride on cycle paths.
And if the motor vehicle branch agrees that
your moped meets all motorcycle standards
you need a motorcycle license to ride it.
Regular drivers' licenses are not valid for
motorcycle driving.
A spokesman for B.C. motor vehicle inspection said in an interview Wednesday he
has encountered only two mopeds in several
years and the motor vehicle branch has been
lenient about licensing requirements.
But he said if large numbers are imported
all the rules for motorcycles will be strictly

trend toward calling them motorcycles."

Rewrite 4,649
The arts faculty, the UBC senate and the registrar
have  rewritten  the textbook  on  democratic elections.
Students and others are used to laughing at petty
dictators in the Philippines, Greece, South Vietnam or
Eastern Europe who are periodically re-elected by huge
margins   in   a  flurry   of  ballot   box  stuffing.
Thanks to Messrs. Nixon, Mitchell, Ehrlichman,
Haldeman and Dean, the U.S., too, can claim to have
contributed to a mockery of the democratic process.
But with the recently-completed elections of student
representatives to the arts faculty our own little university
has joined the above luminaries.
The returning officer, official scrutineer, ballot
counter, nomination-receiver and adjudicator were one
person: registrar Jack Parnall. No one is saying the
many-hatted registrar would "fix" the results, but if he had,
no one but he would know about it.
The opening and closing of nominations was poorly
advertised as was the opening and closing of "polls."
There were no all-candidate meetings, no occasions on
which any election  issues could be publicly aired.
To add to the absurdity the names of the candidates
were kept completely secret. Like some looney Mission
Impossible squad they wallowed their way from nomination
to  victory  under the cloak  of the  registrar.
Presumably Parnall was afraid if the names got out
someone might bother his candidates with useless questions
like "What do you stand for?"
The registrar has announced the "elected" representatives will serve until replaced or re-elected.
With a certain wry humor he then declined to say
exactly when, if ever, the next elections will be held.
Needless to say such a farcial process produced
representation worthy of it.
Only 17 out of 5,000 arts students bothered to run.
Of 23 positions open, 11 were contested and eight of those
were acclaimed. Therefore only three real live "elections"
were conducted.
The people elected reflect the inevitability of elections designed to alienate or simply revolt voters.
They represent nothing. Worse, as our page one
interview with some of them indicates, many don't have any
idea what they represent.
Since there was no discussion of issues during the
campaign, no one has any idea why he or she was elected or
acclaimed and therefore most representatives feel they can
do pretty much what they like.
Since no date has been set for the next election,
presumably they will go on doing what they like.
In an obvious attempt to be a bigger joke than the
registrar, arts dean Doug Kenny says he thinks arts students
are now "fairly represented."
He also commended the cheering throngs who participated in the election "for showing interest."
Now, someone unfamiliar with UBC might conclude
from all this that the university and particularly the arts
faculty is run by a bunch of right wing morons dedicated to
making a mockery of words like "democracy", "representation", "election" and "vote".
Those of us who are closer, however, know better,
don't we? Heh, heh.

Southern Hockey League for the rights to top shooting forward Arthur
Bremer and the Point Grey franchise for Corporal Slanders Deep Fried
Pork Rinds. When asked why he had parted with a proven goal scorer, team
coach-general manager Vaughn Palmer said: "I regretted getting rid of
Coull who was the only hangover (nudge nudge) from last week's team, but
I decided to liquidate (wink, wink) our agreement because I couldn't bear
(nod's as good as a wink to a blind bat) to have him around any more."
Contacted in his spacious West End apartment Coull would only say
"I'm in high spirits (say no more) about the decision and looking forward
to joining the Whoopees for their next home game, let's fuck!"
Coull's team mates Lesley Krueger, Robin Burgess, Doug Rushton,
Linda Hossie, Michael Sasges, Ben Gelfant, Ralph Maurer, Ryon Guedes,
Alan Doree, Marise Savaria, Peter Cummings, Peter Leibik, Rick Lymer,
Sharon Stevenson and Cheryl Stevens, could only hold their heads and say
"please no noise, no noise."
Note to the guy doing the sociological study of The Ubyssey staff:
Your fly was undone yesterday. Hello Lecherous Tom Barnes.
My name is J. Elmo Schtubblevise. I am an arts rep. If found please return to the registrar.
The remarks of French department head Larry Bongie in last
Wednesday's senate meeting
clearly illustrate the problem that
student representation faces
within the arts faculty. (The
Ubyssey, Feb. 26).
He began by stating that the arts
undergraduate society is "too
irresponsible" and incapable "of
fairly conducting the elections,
especially after viewing AUS
reaction to the registrar-run
I question what he means by
"fairly". Does he feel that the AUS
will stuff the ballot boxes to put in
students of their own choosing?
The insinuation is rather
ridiculous. The AUS reaction was a
responsible decision, supported in
a general Arts meeting; not just to
boycott any election at all, but to
ignore an election procedure which
is, to say the least, undemocratic,
and to set up alternate elections
with the objective of bringing them
closer to the students, who, after
all, are the people concerned.
By removing supervision of
these elections from students —
(and not just the AUS, but any
group of students in the arts
faculty — senate has in effect
already declared them to be too
irresponsible to handle their own
affairs. Now the fact that students
are trying to do so is also labelled
as irresponsible. You just can't
However, what really struck me
was Bongie's accusation that the
AUS and The Ubyssey had tried to
"harass and threaten" potential
candidates to withdraw or not put
their names into nomination. He
stated further that he knew of two
students in his own department
who were running and had been
upset with the harassment.
Since the Registrar's office has
consistently refused to release any
of the nominee's names, or even
the departments represented,
someone with inside knowledge
must have been "harassing" those
two unfortunate students.
His statement in senate Wednesday was the first indication
anyone has had that two of the
nominations were from the French
department. I cannot agree with
Bongie's feeling that posters,
handbills, articles in a student
newspaper, etc., either threaten or
harass   people.   They   indicate
discontent among the student
body. Up until now, there has been
no indication that the students
nominated have* been threatened.
It is interesting to note that the
arts faculty is the only faculty on
campus judged to be too
irresponsible to handle their own
elections. It is also the only faculty
boasting department heads and
deans who are considered by most
of the university's population to be
incompetent, irresponsible and
mainly indifferent in dealing with
their students.
It seems to me to be a case of the
pot calling the kettle black.

Moosed up?
The efforts of the small town of
Fernie, B.C. to become part of
Alberta has been recorded recently
by the news media. After reading
the front page Province article
Why Man, Why (Feb. 19), I have
the idea that Fernie should stay in
British Columbia.
My proposal is: Throw Prince
George out of B.C., and let Fernie
residents or anybody with some
common sense such as Fernie
move in. I doubt very much
whether any province would take
the booming metropolis of Prince
George after the moose event.
Just in case you didn't read the
article; briefly — a moose, approximately five years old, in the
prime of its life, wandered into the
Canadian National Railway yards
of Prince George.
The wildlife officers were informed and had the situation under
control, preparing to tranquilize
the bewildered moose, when some
greaser decided to have some fun,
and kicked the already horrified
moose. The frightened moose took
off but hot in pursuit were the
greaser-idiots, throwing
snowballs, shouting and doing
everything possible to get a laugh,
at the expense of a poor confused
animal. The moose fell over an
embankment, broke its leg, was
terrified and completely
exhausted, the wildlife officers
aided the animal as long as
possible, but soon realizing the
situation, did the most humane
thing, which was to shoot it.
Anyone who has been to Prince
George knows there is nothing to
do except drink beer, so this poor
moose became the victim of a dull
town. Only a town with such fools
would allow such a thing to happen.
I suggest that all those in Prince
George who were involved directly
or indirectly, read Farley Mowat's
A Whale for the Killing. Mowat's
story is simply amazing, and one
asks, "How could that ever happen"? With little imagination one
can visualize that Prince George is
the West Coast's Newfoundland
fishing village that Mowat writes
The Province's article is a very
good indication to me of how
wildlife is generally abused. Think
of the abuse when the hunting
season opens, guns instead of boots
— squirrels, robins, beavers,
chipmunks instead of moose.
Because of their inadequacy to
think, how can they possibly hunt

The Pits
There are two Pits on this
campus that we'd like to complain
The first one is the crater in front
of our house on Wesbrook Crescent
which has been devouring cars,
hubcaps, mufflers, and we suspect
people as well.
The other Pit, though slightly
larger, is virtually impossible to
penetrate after 9 p.m. due to an
unnatural constriction at its
opening. While we can appreciate Thursday, February 28, 1974
Page 5
the fire marshall's (sic) concern
that the Pit could become overcrowded most of these Blue
Horizon type lineups could be
eliminated if the Pit staff would
open their eyes and observe that
there are vacant chairs inside
when there are at most 50 people
lined up outside.
This problem was never encountered at the old Pit and
although crowded at times one
could always enjoy a cold one —
standing, sitting or otherwise.
Therefore we Pit veterans insist
that the old Pit be revitalized and
supervised by someone a little less
lunched than a certain pipe-
smoking sergeant major. We
recommend Secret Squirrel and
the Campus Cowboys.

An open letter to Ralph Keeler
and the physiology department,
faculty of medicine. Being a
student of physiology 301, I fully
agree with the standpoint of the
person who wr«te the letter titled
'Unfair' published by The Ubyssey
Feb. 15. To certify any ambiguity,
two questions are being raised.
(1) To what extent were the
physiology 301 exam questions
equal to that of physiology 400
exam paper, if not completely the
(2) How much earlier was the
physiology 400 exam given before
that of the physiology 301 exam?
I hope Keeler or the physiology
department will not remain silent
to these two questions as to the
previous letter. Such policy would
only create more suspicions to the
public in general beside the attending 301 students.
One might think that a term
exam is not worth such attention,
but to consider:
(1) the exam's worth 1/3 of the
final mark of the course
(2) this is a pre-medical course,
admission to medical school would
certainly be influenced by the
standing of this course. This is an
entirely different case.
To imagine those cronies who
believe a different road to the
truth becoming medical
professionals, I can only feel pity'
for the future patients and myself
(also a future patient). I don't
know how many students on this
test know 80 per cent of the
material examined or 80 per cent
of the answers to the exams. Same
applies to the rest of the candidates. I feel sorry for all those
who failed this exam, whose poor
old 300 level minds were overpowered by a 400 level (1st year
medical school) exam and obviously unaware of the simple road
to the truth! Otherwise, their
standing may be brought up to a
pass due to a lower average mark.
I guess they can only blame
themselves for lack of communication to the world outside
their little self-centred study
circles. (Unfortunately, I have to
admit myself being one of them.)
So I decide to let the world realize
what I have missed and I will
certainly do anything I can to
regain my lost ground!
I do hope Keeler and the
physiology department would
reconsider the validity of that
exam! (though not too likely!)
Finally, I would like to remain
unknown for the same excuses as
the other letter writer:
(1) unpredictability of the
physiology department
(2) before I reach the Truth
through the easy road.

Sports discourage team benefits
Canadian University Press
This is the second of three stories

mostly other varsity athletes and a
smattering of general public,
despite probably the best coverage
by the daily press in a major
American football in an
American school in B.C. The
people in the athletics department
have expressed a dream of some
day being the first Canadian school
to compete in the Rose Bowl or
some other such American classic.
Simon Fraser, which competes
in the NAIA — (a small college
league in the U.S.) and in no
Canadian league, has a budget of
more than $400,000 for this year in
athletics and recreation.
The athletic and recreational
salaries deal only with the coaches
and organizers. Athletic and

separate head and is a separate

in the Lower Mainland, with the
exception of hockey. In rugby and
soccer there are several teams,
each requiring a different time
commitment. One team will be for
those purists who enjoy daily
practice as well as the games, and
another will be for a lighter schedule combined with extracurricular
The basic sport for most
Canadian males is hockey. Most of
us have played the game as
children and eventually faded out
of the program as soon as we were
no longer an asset to the club.
For most of us, team sports has
meant combining the best of all
skills to win at all costs. If these
orders were not put down from the
coaches directly, it was expected
of you by your teammates. If team
play meant maintaining such an
attitude, then many people weren't
Such results have developed the
great stress on individuality
prevalent today. We have lost
many of the benefits of teamship
because no teams playing with
each other today play for the enjoyment and fullfilment of both.
Professional sport today adheres
to the philosophy of "winning at all
costs", winning being the only
thing. The players, coaches and
fans have their assigned and unvarying roles.
Professional clubs adopt the
names of cities. This is necessary
to attract and maintain fan support. But it is a chauvanism
determined by mass appeal, by
success. If the team is winning all
is well, with the fans, players and
coaches being in relative harmony.
Losing seasons bring to light the
divisions that exist within the

Remember the football team?
This year's Thunderbirds are
hard to forget, like the Canucks,
Blazers and Lions. They ran up a 0-
8 record and were outscored 298 to
84. But coach Norm Thomas is
working to make things better.
"My main concern is finding
some good offensive linemen and a
couple of quarterbacks. Outside of
them the team's in fairly good
shape," said Thomas.
"We really need a quarterback
who can run as well as throw. It's
such an advantage in Canadian
football with only three downs," he
"Jim Tarves, last season's Divot.
was a good passer, but we had to go
on the ground a lot because he was
-injured. We definitely need a more
balanced attack,"  said  Thomas.
"Recruiting's a real problem at
UBC. We have to compete with
people like Simon Fraser
University who have athletic
scholarships, and of course we
can't. Players ask, 'What's in it for
me?' and what are we going to say,
'Well, we have some nice courses?' " he said.
The losing tradition at UBC also
discourages players from coming
here, said Thomas.
"All we need are four or five
good players to turn us into a
contender," he said.
Thomas also wants football to be
a more important social activity.
"We're really pushing to replace
our Saturday afternoon games
with Friday night ones, so people
can do something after, like go to
the Pit. Right now there's nothing

package. Teams are built around
certain superstars and add to their
style as opposed to them adding
their individual style to the benefit
of the team.
Professional sport in North
America discourages mass involvement, except on the audience
level. Instead of being the inspirational force behind mass
participation, it stresses the importance of specialization and has
transformed amateur sport from
recreational activities to training
beds for professional sport.
Professional sport, through
forms of advertising, is aiming
brainwashing programs at the
young player. A prime example
would be the Bank of Nova Scotia's
Hockey College which signs up
children for deposits while
maintaining their interest through
a monthly newsletter that deals
strictly a la NHL.
Forms of propaganda like this
ensure the young athlete on the rise
maintains his place and role within
the structures provided by such
businesses as the NHL.
The developed, high competition,
intercollegiate leagues are but an
extension of the amateur
development leagues. It's the last
stop where the final polishings are
The recreational department at
Simon Fraser has many refreshing
aspects. It is working to involve the
community, but is concentrating
currently   on community   youth.
The primary concern of the
athletic department is to produce
high level athletes who will "carry
forth" the name of the institution
and its organizers. One of the
requirements of the high cost
expenditures is to attract top level
coaching to develop the student
athlete as much as possible.

As oil reserves run out
Solar heat solution
The world is running out of
standard energy sources and the
only solution is solar power, an
internationally-known geologist
said at UBC Monday.

associated with various oil companies, universities and more
recently   the   U.S.   Geological

The B.C. committee to defend
abortionist Dr. Henry Morgentaler, reacting to recent arrests of
alleged Quebec abortionists, plan a
picket-protest at urban affairs
minister Ron Basford's Vancouver
office tonight at 7 p.m.
Two doctors and a nurse were
recently arrested in Montreal
charged with performing abortions. The two doctors were a Dr.
Tanguay and Dr. Yvon Mac-
Chabee. Nurse Joanne Conax's
charges make her the first woman
ever to be charged under Canada's
abortion laws.
Dr. Tanguay, a practising
gynecologist in Montreal, was
arrested in his office Feb. 21 on
eight charges of performing
abortions in the period from 1972-
But according to Margaret
Manwaring of the Morgentaler
defence committee "the arrest was
a frame-up".
"At least one female police agent
was in Dr. Tanguay's office at the
time of the arrest, posing as a
pregnant woman.
"While she was being examined
by the doctor, 17 policemen broke
into Dr. Tanguay's office. They
served him with a warrant for his
arrest, confiscated much of his
property and apprehended the
other eight patients in the office." .
Dr. Tanguay was released the
next day after signing a notice to
appear in court.
The same week, Quebec justice
minister Jerome Choquette signed
a preferred indictment against Dr.
MacChabee who is currently
facing abortion charges.
Choquette's move means the case
goes immediately to trial without
the usual preliminary hearing.
Meanwhile Dr. Morgentaler has
been given a bill by Quebec Internal Revenue officials for
$354,799.14 in back taxes.
Morgentaler has denied he owes
the government back taxes adding
that he is not stupid enough to
leave himself open for prosecution
on such charges because of his
public position supporting abortion.
In a statement from Morgentaler
given to The Ubyssey by Coreen
Douglas of the B.C. abortion
committee, the Montreal doctor
says he has paid all the taxes he
owes including income from illegal

Survey, said he predicted the
current world oil shortage in 1956.
According to Hubbert, the
present "energy crisis" is a crisis
not contrived by the oil companies
to drive up prices.
"U.S. oil production is running as
close to wide open as ever in its
history," he said.
Hubbert's claims run contrary to
many published reports of oil
hoarding. Press reports charged
Dec. 27 large corporations like
Union Carbide with rushing to buy
up storage tanks, railroad tank
cars and anything else suitable for
storing oil.
Two Federal Power Commission
economists told a U.S. Senate
committee that major oil companies have a consortium which
has leased nearly a million acres of
federal offshore oil acreage in the
Gulf of Mexico. The companies are
holding untold amounts of oil in
shut-in wells there, and refuse to
reveal the amounts available, the
economist said.
Reports in Business Week have
claimed that Texas is producing
only 30 per cent of its oil.
Hubbert outlined his methods of
research in a well-prepared talk.
Because there is only a finite
amount   of   oil,   the   recent   ex-
Nei^ Westminster
ponential growth in the rate of
production of oil must eventually
change into a slow decline in
production, he said.
From a large number of
statistics, Hubbert concluded in
1956 that U.S. oil production would
reach its peak about 1970.
World coal production will begin
to diminish in about 100 to 150 years
before finally disappearing in
about 300 years, Hubbert. said.
Nuclear fission power plants are
not a good solution because of the
hazards of industrial catastrophes,
pollution and sabotage, he said.
The best solution is to use solar
power which is non-polluting and
almost limitless, said Hubbert.
"Solar energy collectors on a
mere patch here and there — an
infinitesimal fraction of our
resource — would still be enough to
supply all the energy needs of
The solar power could be used to
produce methanol, a high octane
fuel which could be distributed in
the existing system, he said.
"Research in solar power is now
under way," Hubbert said in an
interview later. "The U.S.
government and just recently Shell
Oil have provided funds for the
