A senate committee report
recommending greatly increased
powers for faculty members in
university decision-making has
been released to senators for
tomorrow night's special senate
meeting on the Universities Act.
The 98-page report contains the
recommendations of an 11-person
senate committee formed by a
May 18, 1971 resolution of senate
calling for the committee "to
advise on possible changes in the
Universities Act."
Chaired by law dean Albert
McClean the committee dealt with
three themes in its report:
.   • The relationship between the
universities   and   the   provincial
government;
• The relationship between the
three B.C. universities;
• The     internal     university
governments.
Highlights   of   the   report's
recommendations are:
• The establishment of a
"provincial universities' commission to advise the provincial
government on a wide range of
university-related topics.
• The restructuring of the board
of governors to include 17 instead
of 11 members — including three

'AUS shirked responsibility'
By JAKE van der KAMP
The arts undergraduate society was accused Monday of shirking its responsibility by
not conducting a poll on the future of the
University Endowment Lands.
Doug Brock, the Alma Mater Society internal affairs officer said he is extremely
annoyed there was no poll set up in the
Buchanan building Friday even though
council had specifically passed a motion
requesting the AUS to conduct one.
"I had boxes and ballots ready for them and
no one showed up," he said. "If this is owing
to a lack of communication they should really
pack up shop."
There was no poll in the Buchanan building
Wednesday because the AUS was busy with a
general meeting of arts students held to form
r policy on student representation. AUS
president Bill Moen said then the general
meeting had taken up all of AUS executive's
time and he was not prepared to ask anyone to
put in still more work on that day.
He said he considered the general meeting
to be more important than the referendum.
Moen said Monday there was no poll in
Buchanan Friday because he had never heard
of council's request to have the AUS set one
up.
"Jim Schoening, the arts rep at that council
meeting, told us nothing about it," he said.
"This is something for the representatives to
talk about and make some decision on."
Schoening told The Ubyssey he had not
notified the AUS of council's request because
he thought it would be done by someone else.
"I could have told Bill but I figured he
would be officially notified," he said. "It's no
conscious thing, I just thought it would be
handled through higher channels."
,   AMS vice-president Gordon Blankstein said
he feels the AUS has acted irresponsibly.
"I can't see how they could ask arts dean
Doug Kenny for equal student representation
when they're not responsible enough to run a
referendum on the UEL which is of such
importance to the students,'1 he said.
"I think for sure that we'll introduce a
motion to censure them in the next council
meeting," he said.
The referendum asking students what they
thought the future of the lands should be was
held Wednesday when more than 4,000 people
voted 54 per centlri favor of retaining them in
a natural state.
The AMS constitution requires the undergraduate society presidents or their
elected representatives should be the direct
mode of communication between council and
the student body.
Most undergraduate societies have their
presidents sitting on council meetings but
Moen has resigned because the number of
AUS reps has been cut to four from five this
year.
Brock said Moen's absence was probably
the main cause of the trouble.
The constitution also requires the internal
affairs officer to maintain close relations with
the undergraduate societies. AMS president
Brian Loomes feels it should have been up to
Brock to inform the AUS; it is part of his job.
Schoening said he thought the internal
affairs officer was responsible for informing
the AUS about this kind of thing.
Brock disagreed.
"Jim Schoening should have told the AUS
about it," he said. "The representatives job
on council is to bring knowledge of what's
going on in council to their society."
Brock accused the AUS of incompetence
and lack of interest in the AMS.
"They've got four reps on council but
they're rarely all there. I can remember one
time when all four reps were gone and, of
course, at the last meeting there was only one
of them present," he said. "What are they
doing on council anyway. Do they really want
to continue being part of it."
brief
students and faculty members,
• The slight restructuring of
senate including an increase in
student senators from 12 to about
17 and a proportional balance of
about three faculty senators to
each student senator.
The committee rejected the
concept of a single provincial
university with several campuses
throughout B.C. similar to the
California system, because it was
thought smaller institutions would
suffer under the domination of
larger schools.
The report proposes the
provincial universities' commission would advise the education
minister on matters pertaining to
academic development, establishment of new universities, new-
faculties, new degree programs
and promote increased communication and co-operation
between B.C. universities.
The commission would also
receive budget requests from each
university, appraise the requests
and then make recommendations
to the minister. The commission
would then administer the
disbursement of the grants to each
university with the grants being
given in two lump sums; one for
operating budget, the other for
capital budget.
The report recommends the
commission be composed of between 10 and 15 members appointed
by the provincial government.
One-third of the members should
be on a B.C. university faculty and
have had at least five years' experience.
The report does not mention if
students should be appointed to the
commission nor does it specify the
makeup of the remaining two-
thirds of the committee.
The recently-released Bremer
working report on post-secondary
education in B.C. recommended a
near-identical board be set up, with
'll committee members. It did not
specify that a required amount of
faculty members or members
from any other specific group be
voting members on the council.
Currently, there is no comparable
body of this type in existence in
B.C.
Under the senate report's
proposals, the restructured board
of governors would include six
provincial government appointees,
the university chancellor, the
administration president, three
faculty senators, three student
senators and three non-faculty or
non-student members of senate.
Under this scheme faculty
governors would be voted to the
board by their fellow faculty
senators and student governors
would be elected by student
senators. The remaining three
board members to be selected by
senate would be chosen by non-
student or faculty senate members.
* The current board structure sees
six of the 11 members appointed by
the provincial government and
three board members elected by
senate, with the chancellor and
president as non-voting ex-officio
members.
So the senate committee's
proposal would see control of the
board of governors pass from the
provincial government to the
senate.

iiiii
From page 1
The report also expressed
concern over the traditional
domination of the board's
provincial government appointees
by lawyers and businessmen.
The committee thought it would
be too contentinus to categorize
appointments from various
segments of the community and so
decided to recommend appointments continue on an at-large
basis.
"The university should make
formal representations to the
government asking that somewhat
wider public representation should
be achieved in the government
nominees," the report says.
Unlike the senate report the
Bremer report recommended
control of the board of governors
remain with the provincial
government. It proposed the board
be increased to 15 members with
five members elected by convocation and eight appointed by
the provincial government.
The Bremer report recommended no students or faculty be
allowed on the board.
The senate report recommends
far less change in the structure of
the senate than the board of
governors, even though under the
report's board change proposals
senate would gain significant
power in administrating the
university.
The report recommends an increase in the size of senate to 105
members from the current
membership of 98. The current
balance between students; ex-
officio members such as the
chancellor,  president and deans;
faculty; and senate members from
the community would remain
about the same.
So the report recommends the
community representatives to
senate be not greater in number
than the ex-officio members;
students be represented equally to
ex-officio members; faculty have
three times the number of ex-
officio members; and each affiliated religious college to the
university elect one member.
The report also recommends the
chairman of the senate be annually
appointed by the administration
president in consultation with a
senate committee. Currently the
president automatically serves as
senate chairman.
The recommendations also include a provision that senate may
"add to its membership such
senior university officers as senate
may determine from time to
time."
The report explains the provision
as a means whereby senior administrative personnel such as the
deputy president could be appointed to senate by senate.
The Bremer report called for a
decrease in senate size from 98 to
72 members. It called for the
complete exclusion of people not
directly related to the university on
the body.
By the Bremer proposal senate
would consist of 25 per cent administration members such as the
chancellor, president, registrar
and deans, 25 per cent students and
50 per cent faculty members.
By the Bremer proposal administration officials would be
allowed to vote. Currently they are
not.

Society needs education reform
Widespread educational reform
is urgently needed to re-establish
relative stability in society, B.C.
education commissioner John
Bremer told a UBC audience
•Saturday.
Bremer, currently chairing two
provincial government commissions on secondary and post-
secondary education was outlining
his personal philosophy of
education for the Vancouver Institute, a university-based group of
academics and business  people.
"He said this reform is needed to
relieve the current "danger to
society" caused by a large number
of unemployed, well-educated and
dissatisfied young people.
"The existence of unemployed
intellectuals, of well-educated and,
therefore, dissatisfied young
people, is very dangerous to the
stability of society," Bremer said.
"This situation has occured
because society and especially
political leaders have been hungup trying to establish certain
values within geographical
boundaries in an age when new
means of communication and
transportation make it impossible
for a society to control its own
boundaries.
"Ideas, views, attitudes, values
are now tranmitted and received
with no sure control, no effective
means of censorship," he said.
"This is what politics must face up
to, and since these new forces
cannot be ignored or repressed,
they must be incorporated into our
process."
In this way we must "preserve
by saving," he said quoting 18th
century philosopher Edmund
Burke.
However, "To incorporate such
forces cannot be done without
changing the social process itself,
so that education is seen not only to
be individuals within a society, but
also of the social process within
which the individuals live."
In his talk Bremer did not deal
with any issue related to his post-
secondary committee's recently
released preliminary report on
proposed structural changes in the
university.
Later, he was non-commital in
answering any questions related to
the report.
However, asked to describe
reaction to the report so far,
Bremer said he thinks on the whole
there has been very little reaction,
suggesting perhaps people were in
awe of its brilliance.
One member of the audience
replied that perhaps he was
mistaking awe for shock.
Bremer emphasized the need for
"rapid structural change."
"It has never before been
necessary for a society to change
itself structurally, dynamically,
and with great rapidity, at least not
in the deliberate and conscious
way which is now demanded,"
Bremer told the crowd of about 150
persons.
Bremer said the key tool in such
soft revolution would be changes in
the educational system, primarily
moving education off the campus
and schoolground and into the
community.
This would allow students to
acquire the skills needed to cope
with the fast-pace of society, he
said.
"But such skills are not gained
by listening to lectures," he said.
"They are acquired, like all habits,
by practice, so that from an early
age students should be obliged to
interact with their environment."
Brember painted a pluralistic
picture of society as a large
number of groups. The main task
of administration in society, he
said, is maintaining and controlling transactions across the
boundaries of these groups.
He said the role of education
should be to try to lessen friction
between such groups in the
educational structure. He outlined
a four-point strategy to do this:
First, do away with unnecessary
boundaries in the structure. "This
lends support to those who say that
truancy is only possible if school is
compulsory. Abolish compulsory
attendance and truancy vanishes."
Third, "take the activities of the
school and extend them beyond the
boundaries of the school, to refuse
to be bound by the limits of campus, of schoolhouse."
Fourth, create a new structure.
Bremer said he believed
democracy was the best form of
government in which such a
change could take place.
But he stressed it must be a
democracy stressing participation
rather than efficiency.
Choice certain
LETHBRIDGE, Alta. (CUP) — The University of Lethbridge
presential selection committee might more aptly be called the com-
f mittee for Bratislav Beckel as president.
Beckel is currently. University of Lethbridge president, but his contract has expired.
The selection committee is formally mandated by the board of
governors to negotiate terms and conditions for the position with
various candidates.
However, Neil Holmes, chairman of both the selection committee and
the board of governors, says the function of the committee is to decide
whether or not to offer the position to Beckel first.
'The position is not being advertised yet, says Holmes. 'There will be
no need to advertise if Dr. Beckel accepts the offer.'
When asked if the two students on the committee had been aware of
the committee's term of reference before the first meeting Oct. 29,
cHolmes said: "Well, I guess they weren't aware of other things that we
aren't aware of."
But according to one student on the committee: "We were not informed of the terms of reference and went into the meeting only to
discover the function of the committee was totally different than what
we expected. What we expected was a process of consideration of
various candidates. What we got was a discussion of Dr. Beckel and
whether or not to ask him first."
He complained that no minutes were sent to committee members and
^.at even to obtain the procedures section required clearance through
Holmes. It was also apparent, he said, that Beckel is thoroughly aware
of the committee's decision as the minutes are handled by his office.
Holmes disagreed: "If you are dissatisfied, you look elsewhere. We
are aware of what is available. There are lists."
When asked if the candidate lists were discussed at the first and only
meeting, Holmes admitted they weren't but said they discussed the
philosophy of how to go about a thing of this nature. The students
claimed that they were unable to judge the sole candidate, Beckel, when
they had no basis for comparison. They also complained they were
t unable to represent the student viewpoint as they were not allowed to
discuss the matter with other students due to the 'delicate' nature of the
procedure.
"We should recognize that it
(participation) is inefficient and
that people do not know enough to
do it.but we should recognize that
efficiency implies an end or purpose and to call citizen participation inefficient is based on
the supposition that our prime goal
is something other than citizen
participation in the setting of
goals," he said.
He said students should take a
creative role in such participation
and change.
"In the present set-up the young
are not provided with the opportunity to take a creative part in
society so as a result there are
periodic results in society," he said
making reference to recent student
revolts in Greece.

ANNA CUSHMAN talks about the ubiquitous Dr. Henry Morgentaler to a noon hour meeting Monday. As
she told the audience, this last acquittal by no means ends the series of charges the Montreal abortionist
faces. Cushman is head of a Toronto committee supporting Dr. Morgentaler.
Appeal could force Dr. to jail
By ROBIN BURGESS
Dr. Henry Morgentaler may still go to jail despite
his recent acquittal on charges of performing illegal
abortions if Canadian women don't "keep the
pressure on", Anna Cushman, co-ordinator of the
Toronto committee to defend Dr. Morgentaler
warned Monday.
"We may have tasted the first sweet taste of victory but it's very apparent we have to step up the
campaign," she said.
Morgentaler, a Montreal doctor who has admitted
performing over 5,000 medically safe, but illegal
abortions, was acquitted by a jury of 11 men and one
woman Nov. 13. However the crown has appealed the
jury decision to the Quebec supreme court.
Cushman, currently on tour through the western
provinces to raise money for Dr. Morgentaler's
defence, made an impassioned appeal for support in
front of about 25 persons, in SUB clubs lounge at noon.
"When the decision was announced almost the first
words Dr. Morgentaler spoke were: This is a victory
for the women of Canada; and it is a victory for the
democratic right of women to control their own
bodies. Our job is to defend that victory."
The anti-abortionist forces have already shown
they're not going to take the Nov. 13 decision lying
down, said Cushman.
She told the audience the day before she got to
Edmonton a private members bill to take abortion off
the Alberta Medical Plan was given second reading in
the Alberta legislature.
Then, she said, she reached Vancouver only to
learn despite assurances to the contrary'Morgentaler
is going to be taken to court this week for the next
preliminary hearing. Morgentaler faces 12 more
charges of performing illegal abortions.
The defence campaign has got to be expanded, she
said.
"Here in B.C. you've got to nail the NDP to the wall
until every charge against Dr. Morgentaler is
dropped.
Adequate press coverage of the case is new more
important than ever, she emphasized.
"We've got to make sure there is no way the
Vancouver papers can black out anymore as
they've been doing. We've got to keep Dr. Morgentaler in the public eye. If not he's going to go to jail
and if he goes to jail that's our fault," Cushman said.
English department professor Hilda Thomas told
students though she applauds the jury decision to
acquit Morgentaler she has little hope it will be
upheld by the Quebec Supreme Court.
Morgentaler was acquitted under seldom-used
article 45 of the criminal code which says a doctor can
legally perform an operation providing it is in the
best interest of the patient and is done in a safe,
responsible manner.
However, the Quebec Supreme Court, "a very
conservative body" is liable to find section 45 not
applicable to abortions, Thomas said.
Despite NDP policy that abortion is a matter of
individual conscious and should be eliminated from
the criminal code, "abortion on demand" is far from
a reality in B.C. she said.
She pointed out that under Vancouver's residency
requirement a woman must have lived in the city six
months before she can obtain an abortion at a Vancouver hospital.
"That means there is no way women outside of
Vancouver can obtain an abortion within the
necessary time limit," she said.
Thomas said the issue is not just about the right of
women to control their own bodies but "the right of all
people to make moral decisions which affect their
own lives."
"I'm absolutely convinced this campaign has far
reaching implications in terms of the whole feminist
movement — in terms of the rights of women to
control their own lives. All of us must take it on
ourselves to act."
The B.C. Committee to Defend Dr. Morgentaler is
urgently in need of funds to cover past expenses.

Student court
The student council is guilty of not taking one of its
own lackey organizations seriously.
Councillors have decided student court isn't worthy of
their attention. Therefore they haven't bothered to prepare
a case for the defence in the Georgia Straight dispute.
Meanwhile two law students have cooked up an
incredible case which they claim not only establishes that
the AMS cannot ban free Straight distribution on campus,
but that the basis for the AMS constitution is shakey and
further that Certs is a candy mint, not a breath mint.
Originally court was something of a joke because four
of its member were AMS associates who could hardly be
expected to rule against council's action.
But because of recent appointments, however, six of
seven justices are concerned, serious law students just
waiting to cut their legal teeth on this legal hassle/''
Law rep Gordon Turriff has been trying to tell
councillors for one month they should take the court
seriously, but alas, council had more important things to do.
As a result on Thursday, AMS treasurer John Wilson
was forced to go before the court and ask for a delay until
January.
The founders of the AMS set up the court so council
will simply have to put up with this acrobatic legal
wrangling.
This means the AMS will have to dig up a couple of
more law students to prepare a case as to why the AMS has
the precedent to set conditions on Straight distribution.
If all this seems like an old rerun of The Defenders
you're probably right.
But as chief justice Hamar Foster said in censuring
council's unpreparedness at Thursday's hearing: "We're
going to take this seriously, so the AMS should do so as
well."

Don't care
Recently, I was confronted with
the problem of student apathy. The
confrontation took the form of a
cynical phone questionnaire,
asking, among other things my
opinion on student representation.
I feel that the position I take on this
question is my own business but
since someone was interested
enough to ask I thought I would
make it general knowledge.
Firstly I see no reason for
meetings, petitions or discussion
on the topic of student participation in the decision making
bodies of our university.
Why should I waste time that
could be devoted to studies by
demanding a voice in the way my
university years — some of the
most important years of my life —
are run?
Just because I am-responsible
enough to drink, vote, see dirty
movies and be legally responsible
for my actions in the eyes of the
law, doesn't mean I am responsible
enough to know my university and
my life is governed.
I am only interested in getting a
job at the end of my years at UBC
and not at all interested in improving the system for future
generations or, alternately, interested in fostering in the
university, an example of a truly
responsible working democracy
and dividing the burden of
governing among all of us.
I am only interested in me!
This is why I find these questions
(below) that were posed to me on
the phone cynical and above all
juvenile!
Tooth fury
By ALAN DOREE
Visits to the dentist appeal to me about as much as a case of
Congo body rot.
This one would be worse than usual I guessed. Subtle hints
tipped me off, like the patient chained upside down to the waiting
room wall and the half-naked guy in the black hood next to my
chair.
A nurse tied me to a concrete slab immersed in the water
seeping from the walls and cackled, "Rest uncomfortable,sonny.
Dr. Eric T. Butcher will be along as late as possible."
Two days later the doctor entered.
He approached me, kicking aside rats and lizards that littered
the floor. "Pick up your garbage, dammit," he roared, then knelt
on my stomach.
"I promise the pain will be intense and prolonged," he said,
opening my mouth and inserting an air hose, water spray, cotton
batten, grease gun, jackhammer and a pair of sneakers. "Not
only that," screeched his nurse, tightening my bonds," "this
shoddy work will be incredibly expensive!"
"Don't worry about your hysteria," assured Dr. Butcher,
starting the jackhammer. "It's a perfectly normal reaction that
afflicts all my other patients too."
I regained consciousness hours later on a pile of straw in a dank
cellar, dental school drop-outs going through my pockets and
loosening old fillings.
"Three healthy teeth removed, four cavities enlarged, bacteria
installed in hard-to-clean places, check! Praise be to Mad
Rasputin, Boarhound of the North and Patron Saint of Dentistry,"
they cried.
As the conveyor belt took me down into the relapse room they
shouted, "Crest be damned! Nothing can save you now, the teeth
of the world are in our hands!"

HARRUMPH:
Aw come on . . . Lyon, Street,
Bums and Steele. It's humourless
people — people like yourselves —
who force most of the inspired wit
on campus to be written within the
confines of urinal walls. Every
time a satirist, humourist of
whatever, tries to present the
lighter side of any event you and
your kind jump on them and force
their thinking back in line.
Prudence Ramsbottom's society
column is the freshest new
material we've seen in The
Ubyssey this year. With a little
support maybe Prudence's article
could spawn a raft of satiric type of
reporting, instead of the basic dull
format of reporting basically dull
campus bureaucratic business.
We suggest that you reread the
article regarding the royal
marriage and consider that it was
written to amuse, not to offend and
then maybe you might understand
the phrase "she may be horsey, but
she's a great lay" will be
remembered much longer than the
narrow-minded criticism that you
had to offer.

common sense (in this respect
least), I can recall how
unreasonable I used to think
anyone was who objected to my
smoking in a public place: anyone
who bitched could of course only be
an ill-tempered eccentric.
In the profile on Ralph Nader in
The New Yorker (Nov. 8 & 16,1973)
I like the opening story:
" 'You see this lady on my
right?' Ralph Nader asked me. We
were aboard a morning flight from
San Francisco to Dallas during one
of several trips I took with him to
observe his activities. As he asked
the question, he nudged my arm
and motioned with his head in the
direction of a well-dressed woman
across the aisle contentedly
smoking a cigarette. Some of the
smoke was drifting Nader's way,
and he wasn't liking that. 'See?' he
said. 'She's utterly insensitive to
my smoking her cigarette
derivately.' Nader leaned over and
said something that I didn't catch
to the woman. She looked embarrassed . . . I . . . asked Nader
what he'd said to the woman across
the aisle. 'I suggested an
arrangement,' he told me. 'I
suggested that we take turns. She
would smoke for 15 minutes, and
then I would have air for 15
minutes.' I looked across the aisle
to see how the cigarette-smoking
woman had reacted. Her seat was
empty. She had moved to another
part of the plane."
Now I feel impelled to make a
confession, one that I wouldn't
want the Registrar to hear about.
When I am assigned to invigilating
an examination where all the
students are known to me personally, at half time I permit the
addicts present to take five, and
retire from the examination room
for a nicotine fix. I guess this
betrays my concern for the jangled
nerves of the poor devils deprived
of their drug. And maybe that's
just slushy sentimentality on my
part.

curiously smelling little gift. "It's all your own for your very own birthday,"
said Rick Lymer, Ken Dodd, Lesley Krueger and Jake van der Kamp. "Aw
gee whiz," said Mike. "Thanks a lot," as he threw the package into the

Weasel
Stuart Russell must think The
Ubyssey's readers are going to let
him off easily, allowing him to
weasel out of our little discussion
by holding a "debate" so as to gain
publicity for his moribund
"socialist" organization (The
Ubyssey, Nov. 23).
Any such debate, of course,
should begin with Russell answering the specific questions I put
to him in my letter of Nov. 15,
regarding both the ban on free
distribution of the Georgia Straight
and the Young Socialists'
credentials as defenders of
democracy.
But don't get your hopes up.
Russell obviously knows the holes
in his argument are bigger than his.

Energy
I request everyone's cooperation in a program designed to
reduce our consumption of electrical power and heating fuel. In
view of the international energy
crisis, it is up to each of us to do
whatever we can to use our energy
resources wisely and
economically. We are probably one
of the largest non-industrial users
of electrical power in B.C.; our
total bill for electricity, natural gas
and fuel oil amounts to more than
$1 million a year. The potential,
therefore, exists for savings that
will be significant from both the
financial and resource-use points
of view.
We are initiating a number of
university-wide measures which
we hope will reduce our energy
consumption. For example, the
office of systems services is trying,
so far as possible, to concentrate
room bookings for classes and
other. activities into a minimum
number of buildings. This will
permit the extinguishing of lights
and reduction of temperatures in
unused building areas for extended
periods.
Throughout the university we
shall be reducing daytime room
temperatures, where feasible,
from their present average of 72-73
degrees to 68 degrees. There will,
of course, be many exceptions to
this rule; certain laboratories,
animal quarters and other
facilities must be maintained at
higher temperatures. But 68
degrees will be adequate in offices
and classrooms. The mechanics of
altering temperatures will be
taken care of by our department of
physical plant; thermostats in
individual rooms should not be
adjusted by the occupants.
Much heat is wasted through
windows and doors being left open
unnecessarily, particularly at
night. All windows should be closed
at the end of the day.
Lights, electric typewriters and
office machines, ventilating fans
and other electrical appliances
should be turned off when not
needed. Incandescent bulbs should
be switched out when a room is to
be vacated for even a few minutes;
fluorescent fixtures should be
turned off during lunch hours and
whenever a room is unused for half
an hour or longer.
These are some of the ways in
which the university, as a public
institution, can do its part in the
worldwide drive to conserve
energy. Obviously, this program
depends on the co-operation of all
of us who use university facilities. I
urge you to be alert for every
opportunity to make this program
a success.
The foregoing is subject to any
changes which may be required by
federal or provincial rulings.

I used to be an amateur wrestler
in Hungary for longer than three
years.
I won the championship for the
West in 1952 (junior). I was feeling
quite conceited when I started the
game in Canada.
Actually I did win the Vancouver
championship through some
unusually short fights, but I also
had a very big surprise at your
UBC.
There I wrestled with a fellow
whom I will remember forever. He
was ignorant but incredibly strong.
No doubt he was by a wide margin
the strongest chap I ever wrestled
anywhere at all.

"We're looking for guys who are
creative, have a vision of what's
needed in this world —- stand by
their vision in the face'of opposition, misunderstanding — But not
a selfish vision — doing things for

change a society that's messed up.
The Scarboro Fathers offer one road of bringing this
about — a power thing — transforming attitudes.
This has been my experience as a Scarboro Foreign Missionary in the Philippines — I learned the Church has
the power to do things — not just baptizing, blessing in
the old sense — but the dynamics of working with small
groups of people who learn to work for themselves —
come into their own — become involved — a coming
alive.
I don't know if you're creative, or got a vision — but if
you aren't content with what you see — and want to do

Saturday night's game followed
the same pattern set the night
before. The Broncos stayed with
the Birds throughout the first half
and led 50-48 at the break. In the
second half Bird superiority on the
boards asserted itself and UBC
pulled away to record their sixth
straight win. Ralph Turner, still-
recovering from a bout of tonsilitis,
had 29 points for the Birds, and
MacKay contributed 22. Ken Zokol

It takes the UBC Thunderbirds
longer than most basketball teams
to warm up.
But once they get moving,
they're hard to stop.
In Friday's game against the
North Shore Mountaineers they
scored 65 second half points to
down the visitors 98-57. Saturday
night against the Burnaby-New
Westminster Broncos they out-
scored the Dogwood league club 54-
31 in the final half to win 102-81.
The two victories extended the
Birds winning streak to six without
a loss. But coach Peter Mullins was
not hilled into a false sense of
security as he prepared his
charges for their league opener
Friday night at the University of
Calgary.
"Our fast break isn't good
enough, and we're not getting the
rebounds I feel we should be getting. Also, we're not checking well
enough — our forwards aren't
checking deep enough," said
Mullins.
Friday night the Mountaineers
utilized a tenacious defence to slow
the pace of the running Birds and
force them to shoot from well
outside. At one point the Mountaineers had built up a seven point
lead, but the Birds tied it up late in
the first half and took a 33-31 lead
on a layup by David Craig just as
the buzzer went.
Perhaps the strong showing late
in the first half was all the Birds
needed. In the second half they
quickly dispelled the illusion the
Mountaineers would win as they
built up a 28 point lead in 13
minutes, and eventually won by a
41 point spread.
Mike MacKay was held to 13
points, but Blake Iverson filled the
gap by putting up 23. Werner Spann
had 18 for the losers

Fencer's status improves
By RICK LYMER
Four members of the UBC fencing team competed in the Sun Life
International Open at Edmonton Saturday and Sunday.
Chris Kreis, Gill Gauthier, Andrew Schulz, in the epee, and Pat Tam
the sabre, paid their own way to this amateur event.
Pat Tam finished very well, placing second and acquiring a "B"
rating by defeating two "A" players in the competition. This brings to
four the number of "B" fencers on the UBC team, two in epee and two in
sabre.
Gill Gauthier and Andrew Schulz made the semifinals in the epee. In
this category there were eight "A" fencers and six "B" fencers.
The UBC team finished well ahead of other competing universities.
The University of Alberta placed second in the epee and the University
of Victoria was second in the sabre. There were 16 college fencers out of
40 in the epee, and seven out of 21 in the sabre.

Tired Birds
win one
By ALAN DOREE
"God, I'm so tired I wouldn't even be here if I didn't have a class to
teach."
This was hockey coach Bob Hindmarch's reaction Monday morning to
a road trip which saw the Thunderbirds play three consecutive nights
and lose on two. Stretched uncomfortably across two chairs in his office,
he tried to stay awake and discuss the 8-6 and 5-2 losses to the Universities of Alberta and Calgary on Saturday and Sunday.
"I hate these road trips. Being the only west coast team we got stuck
with three games in three days. We were tired in Calgary and it hurt us,
but I felt a couple of cheap goals lost the game in Edmonton."
The University of Alberta Golden Bears scored twice in overtime to
win and Hindmarch described the goals as "The kind that bounce off
just about everybody before they go in."
The Birds beat the University of Saskatchewan Huskies 6-4 in
Saskatoon Friday, but Hindmarch didn't feel the Birds were as sharp as
they can be in any of the three games.
"It was more than being tired. The fact that our last three games were
exhibition contests took the edge off our team."
The Birds now have three wins and two losses this season.
UBC pins grads
By TOM BARNES
In wrestling action Saturday the Thunderbirds defeated the Grads 14-
11 in the first annual Varsity-Grad dual meet.
John Davison started things rolling for Varsity with a third round pin
over Dennis Tazumi in the 188 pound class. Bill Henderson increased the
Birds lead to eight points with a 6-3 decision over Paul Howes at 134
pounds.
The Grads then got onto the scoreboard with two straight decisions.
Dave Higachi outpointed John Cipolato 4-3 to take the 126 pound match,
and Bob Ormond pulled the Grads to within two points, 8-6, with a 2-1
decision over Mike Ritchie in the 158 pound class.
Phillippe Markon and George Ritchie put the match out of the Grads
reach with a decision 4n the 190 pound and the heavyweight classes
respectively. Markon took Bill McDonald 8-0 and Ritchie bested Cam
Christensen 3-0. Varsity went ahead 14-6 with only one match to go.
At 176 pounds, Bob Ormond, in his second match of the day, took on
Bob Garvin. Ormond, a Canadian inter-collegiate champion last year
for UBC overwhelmed his opponent, building up a 12-0 lead before
getting a pin. This rounded out the scoring and gave the Birds a three
point lead.
For the most part the matches were fast moving and high scoring.
The whole affair was held on a light vein, with the main, interest of
having fun.

Female gays worse off
DON'T HIBERNATE THIS WINTER!
KINGSTON (CUP) — The female homosexual is in
worse straits than the male homosexual because she
is both a woman and a homophile and suffers the
stereotyping which comes from the combination of
the two, George Hislop of the Community Homophile
Association of Canada, told Queen's University
students recently.
Hislop's speech followed a film, 'Anything You
Want to Be, dealing with the double standard imposed
on women throughout their lives; they can be
anything as long as they are housewives and mothers.
Hislop insisted that homosexuality is a fact, has
always been a fact, and needs no more explanation
than heterosexuality. The only difference between a
homosexual and a heterosexual is the primary erotic
attraction.
A homophile is no more promiscuous than is a
heterosexual. Just as the heterosexual is not attracted to every member of the opposite sex, neither
is the homosexual attracted to every member of her
sex, he said.
A large number of homosexuals are married,
through pressures applied by family and friends or
the need for a cover, he maintained.
The legal aspects of homosexuality are a primary
concern of the Homophile Association which Hislop
leads.
Although the criminal code still discriminates
against those single and under 21 who engage in
sexual acts, whether homosexual or heterosexual,
Hislop claimed that generally only the homophile is
prosecuted. He suggested that this is because
heterosexual policemen cannot identify with
homosexuals.
The homophile is confronted with other legal oppressions. The Immigration Act forbids a known
homosexual to enter the country. A homophile is not
allowed to adopt a child. Homosexual fathers or
mothers are not allowed access to their children.
The last two restrictions, Hislop contended, were
considered to be rooted in the fear that a homosexual
is immoral and would raise the child as a homophile.
Although the association has made some progress
in amending certain legal discriminations, he admitted that progress is slow and it is difficult to solicit
aid from political circles.
Hislop suggested that if straights discuss their
fears and feelings of sexuality with gay acquaintances, 4,000 years of discrimination could be terminated. If a straight reaction was indifferent to
gays, the homophile would no longer need to fear
condemnation. This, he concludes, is the objective of
the association.

A group of members and supporters of the arts undergraduate

The matter is currently bogged

passed at the last senate meeting.
No date was specified for reconsideration however it is believed
the matter will not be dealt with

Vancouver fast to
aid dry Ethiopia
Brian Olding, Vancouver co-ordinator of a campaign to raise money
for drought-hit Ethiopia, is asking all people in Greater Vancouver to
give up an evening meal.
Olding wants people not to eat dinner on Dec. 20 and send the money
they would have spent to OXFAM, a world relief organization.
Oxfam is starting a fund to send food, medical aid and money to the
drought-hit areas of northern Africa.
Ethiopia has received the least help of the food short areas of Africa,
Olding said Monday. Between 50,000 and 100,000 tribesmen and farmers
have died of starvation and disease since the drought started, he said.
Even if you chose not to give up your evening meal, Olding said, send
what money you can to OXFAM, Ethiopian relief fund, Box 12,000

at the senate meeting was
defeated. The report recommends
23 student representatives, slightly
less than five per cent, be elected
by election conducted by the
registrar.
AUS president Bill Moen told the
group Monday students should
work around the senate guidelines
in formulating a new system of
student representation.
At the same time, he said,
students should demand the Prang
report be reconsidered by a faculty
committee to encompass student
opinions which were left out of the
original draft.
Brian Loomes, Alma Mater
Society president, said the students
should organize on the basis of
principle parity representation and
a voice on all decision making
committees within the university.
"That will allow attention to be
directed toward the students, away
from convincing the senate and
faculty to change their minds," he
said.
Moen has said previously it is
important for students to discuss
this question among themselves in
terms of serious political
discussion about the nature of the
university.
