A former Social Credit cabinet minister and two prominent
Vancouver businessmen were appointed to UBC's board of
governors by the provincial government Monday.
Vancouver lawyer Leslie Peterson, actuary Alan Pierce and
Alan Crawford are three of the government's six appointees to
the board.
Peterson was attorney-general, education and labor minister
under W. A. C. Bennett; Pierce is managing director of actuaries
firm William M. Mercer Ltd., and Crawford is president of
Anatek Electronics Ltd.
Two current board members,
Ian Greenwood, the general
manager of B.C. Tree Fruits Ltd.,
and George Morfitt, secretary,
comptroller and director of Jack
Diamond and Sons Ltd., a real
estate holdings company, have
been reappointed to the board,
Bennett said.
NDP education critic Dennis
Cocke charged Monday that the
appointments were politically
motivated and are an attempt by
education minister McGeer to take
control of UBC.
"My reaction (to the appointments) is that I'm not the
least surprised. Dr. McGeer has
played politics for two years and
part of his policy has been to get an
iron grip on UBC," he said.
"To my way of thinking it's
McGeer's way of keeping his iron
grip on UBC."
Cocke said the new appointees
and the reappointment of
Greenwood and Morfitt will ensure
that the board will take an accounting approach to education
and strictly follow government
"It will be a cost-accounting
board. It will be very responsive to
the government and that's not good
for UBC," he said.
Education ministry information
officer John Ewing said Monday
the three remaining provincial
appointments to the 15-member
board will be announced later.
Ewing said three current board
members, George Hermanson, Pat
Chubb and Ben Trevino will not be
considered by the government for
reappointment and that board
member Pearley Brissenden asked
not to be considered for reappointment.
Hermanson also criticized the
appointments as being too business
oriented for the UBC board.
"I'm not'surprised Patt Chubb
and Ben Trevino were not reappointed. Pat represented people
and Ben represented small "1"
liberal views. It's interesting who
was let off (the board) first," he
Hermanson said he was upset to

Familiar faces take board elections
Paul Sandhu and incumbent
candidate Basil Peters have been
elected student representatives to
the board of governors, the
registrar's office announced
Arts undergraduate society
president Fran Watters was
narrowly defeated in her bid to
become the board's first elected
woman member.
Peters received 1,179 votes out of
2,837 ballots cast, but was closely
followed by Sandhu with 1,160
The losers are: Watters (1,118);
commerce student Bill Pedlar
(565); Deborah Macintosh, comm.
1, (527); Young Socialist Elaine
Bernard (364); and Rob
McLauchlin, arts 3, (237).
Only 42 votes separated Watters
from Sandhu in what was one of the
closest board elections in recent
years. A recount is not expected.
In the senator-at-large race,
candidates Dave Coulson, Don
Gillespie, Chris Niwinski, Lome
Rogers and Karim Suleman were
elected to one-year terms.
Final vote tallies are: Coulson
(1,733); Gillespie (1,565); Niwinski
(1,126); Rogers (1,108); Suleman
(971); applied science student
Peter Schmelcher (947); Bruce
Ross, arts 3, (945); Young Socialist
Fred Nelson (811); and Bob Staley,
arts 1, (562).
Peters only won two of 12 polls
but got 257 votes from 274 ballots
cast in the civil and mechanical
engineering building, one of the
two polls he won. He also won the
McMillan poll.
Watters topped the polls in Gage,
Vanier, Buchanan, education and
law. Sandhu finished first in
Totem, SUB, Woodward and
Sedgewick. Mcintosh won the
Angus poll and Pedlar took the
Math students ain't so smart either
it don't add up
Math 100, a basic course in calculus, has
become a major headache for many students
as 35 per cent failed the December exam and
26 per cent failed the half-year course.
The course, a prerequisite for higher math
courses and most science and applied science
programs was failed by 634 students out of an
enrolment of 1807.
These results have caused bitter complaints
by many students who feel the final exam was
too hard and was designed to fail many
Math 100 student Mitchell Houg, who passed
the course with 51 per cent even after failing
the final exam, said the concepts in the exam
were too abstract.
He added there was no review of basic
mathematical concepts at the beginning of the
course after a three-month summer break.
"We went at a mad pace up until the final
exam," he said.
Houg said the tutorials were sometimes
helpful but were too crowded most of the time
to get particular problems solved.
Student Lucia Quirconi said the exam was
unfair. "There were too many word-type
problems on the exam."
There should have been more basic calculus
concept problems instead, she said. "The math
department went out of their way to make the
test very difficult to pass."
Mathematics department head Donald Bures
said failing students is not a policy of his
department and that the failure rate is not that
He said that because math 100 is a
prerequisite for many courses it fulfills the
same role as English 100 in weeding out the
weaker students.
Bures said he is concerned about the quality
of students taking math 100. Many students
taking the course lack the basic skills of
geometry, algebra and the ability to set up
word problems.
He said the secondary school system is at
fault for not teaching fundamental math skills.
Ron Riddel, co-ordinating instructor for math
100, said there has been a drift toward more
applicable math skills but that students are not
doing well.
"Students are shoring up work they haven't
learned yet and they are very weak in basic
Riddel said students seem to have greatest
difficulty solving word problems,
"It seems that they don't have the comprehension to find out what the problem really
means. Setting up problems from description
and solving it if it involves more than one step
has become a major stumbling block for many
Riddel said students are cheated by B.C.'s
high school system. "They come out of grade 12
thinking they have a good background for
university only to find themselves scrambling

industrial education students' poll
at B.C. Institute of Technology.
"It's frustrating to win most of
the polls but to lose the election
because of the engineering
building poll," said Watters.
"I hope Peters realizes he
doesn't have campus support,
because he'll have to get that
The same trend was evident in
the senate race as science and
engineering candidates received
overwhelming support at the
engineering building poll.
"I'm surprised they (the
engineers) only voted for one
person, but I guess that's pretty
typical," Watters said.
Elected representative Sandhu
also believes the engineering vote
helped Peters.
"If it was not for the engineering
vote, Peters would not have won,"
he said.
Meanwhile, Bob Goodwin
narrowly defeated Kerry Kukucha
for the commerce seat on senate.
Goodwin received 122 votes to
Kukucha's 112 in the closest race of
the election.
Bruce Armstrong will sit on
senate as the science representative following a 28-vote victory
over Gary Waters. Armstrong
obtained 237 of the 446 ballots cast,
while Watters had 209.
In the graduate studies race,
Dave Smith defeated David Rowat
132 to 26. Smith was the former

United Action Slate candidates
were decimated in the Wednesday
elections. Only Lome Rogers was
successful of the five UAS members who ran. UAS board candidate Bernard finished sixth out of

fight against possible government
cutbacks," Sandhu said. Page 2

Pit draft has to be changed
The Liquor Administration
Branch has told student council
that the Pit must rotate its draft
beer suppliers if it wants to keep its
K. G. Stewart, director of
marketing for the LAB, said in a
letter sent last week to the Student
Administrative Commission that
the Pit, as a "non-commercial"
vendor, must rotate draft suppliers
every year to prevent brewers
from competing against one
another for the Pit business. He
suggested Jan. 1 as an annual
switchover date.

"I think I played a role here by
being on campus and helping interpret the campus scene in a
positive way and that's important," he said.
All three new appointees denied
that the appointments were
political and Crawford and Pierce
stated that they were not connected with the Social Credit party.
Peterson said he would not have
accepted the position if he believed
it was a political appointment

to catch up on work they should
have learned in high school."
Both Bures and Riddel said there
is a lack of communication between the secondary schools and
the university when courses are set
up which are prerequisite to
university courses.
Riddel said there is a growing
gap between the two systems.
Students are falling into that gap
and having difficulty climbing out,
he said.
Math 100 student Iain Higgens
said he was not prepared for the
"In high school all we really did
was plug things into formulas. I
was really never forced to think."
Higgens said there should be a
standard admission examination
for secondary students entering
university for the first time.
Pierce said he has a bachelor of
mathematics degree from UBC,
has been involved in the Vancouver
business world for several years
and is also active in the UBC
alumni association.
Crawford said he has a bachelor
of science degree in electrical
engineering from the University of
Saskatchewan and in addition to
being president of Anatek is the
majority shareholder of Alan
Crawford Associates Ltd., which
he called the "largest Canadian-
owned distributor in Canada of
electronic instrumentation."
"My own hunch is that my industrial and management
background was the reason I was
picked (for the board)," said
Crawford said he has been involved with high technology
companies employing university
graduates for many years.
Peterson said he has no preconceived notions about how
universities should be funded or if
the current government is inadequately funding B.C. universities.
"I don't come in with any
preconceived notions except the
recognition that high quality
education today requires large
expenditures of money on the one
hand and on the other, since the
funding of education is by the
taxpayer, we have to be concerned
that we are getting good value for
the money spent," he said.
Peterson said he has not
discussed education policy with
McGeer "since we debated it on
opposite sides of the legislature,"
referring to the time McGeer was
provincial Liberal leader.
Peterson said that while tuition
fees are necessary, they should be
kept as low as possible. He also
said he has no strong feelings on
the question of whether student
representation should be continued
on the universities' governing
bodies, the board of governors and
the senate.

in the Vancouver law firm

JBrits rescued by North Sea oil
Great Britain is not about to
collapse and could be the strongest
economy in Europe in 10 years, a
British political science professor
said Monday.
Anthony King told 30 students in
Buchanan that the North Sea oil
boom will soon make Britain the
only European country self-
sufficient in energy.
"There is a possibility that we'll
join OPEC (Oil and Petroleum
Exporting Countries) in a couple of
years," said King.
The economy's recovery from
the inflation of 1973 has been
remarkable, he said.
"Inflation last year was 12 per
cent, and we should be back to
single-digit inflation by the end of
this year," King said.

Douglas gets the shift
Canadian University Press
Douglas College announced
Monday that its New Westminster
campus will be moved to the city's
financially ailing downtown core.
The decision to relocate followed
months of pressure from the B.C.
Development Corporation, city
hall and the local chamber of
Local business associations
claim the future of the downtown
area rested with the decision
whether to relocate the campus,
which meant the "life or death" of
a $150 million BCDC redevelopment scheme.
New   Westminster's   downtown
core has suffered a loss of business
over the last 10 years which has
forced many retailers to close
down or move out.
The present campus is located
about a mile from the downtown
area. Students have attended
classes in temporary buildings
since the college opened in 1970.
The current site will be used for a
high-rent district.
Other downtown plans include a
courthouse complex, federal and
provincial government office
construction, a monorail crossing
the Fraser River to Surrey, and a
high rent condominium project on
the banks of the Fraser.
The new campus is expected to
be operating by 1981.
College principal George
Wootton said a presentation to
college council by student
president Dave Johnston was a
"major influence on council's
decision to choose the city centre
site after three months of indecision."
Johnston has come under heavy
criticism from student council for
supporting the relocation plan.
Student council is divided on the
issue, but Johnston said he acted
"with full authorization" from
recovery was a cutback in
government spending, he said.
The notion that Britain is being
taken over by communists or
fascists is bizarre in the extreme,
said King.
"But, there are a certain number
of fascists in Britain," he admitted.
The strength of the communists
and fascists have grown primarily
because of economic difficulties,
he said.
"They have only 36 or 50 seats
out of 650 in the British parliament.
In those seats, their best seats,
they have had only 1.2 per cent
growth," said King.
In February of 1974 their
strength increased by 50 per cent,
but that put their total strength up
to only 1.8 per cent, he said.
"Almost nobody in England is
concerned about Northern
Ireland," said King. "It would be
scarcely noticed by Britain if they
were towed out to sea once and for
all," he said.
The problem of Northern Ireland
is unrelated to any other problem,
said King.
"They became a problem in the
late 1960's. They would still be a
problem if the economy picked
up," he said.
Even though most Britains feel
that the Irish should go their own
way, it is not easy to get rid of
them, King said.
"They are legally under the
jurisdiction of Britain and that
makes it very difficult for them to
get out."
King said there would be several
possible reactions in Northern
Ireland if British troops were to
pull out, he said.
"The two factions might be so
frightened they would come to
some agreement. A minor civil
war in Ulster would turn into a
major civil war," King said.
Most Northern Ireland
Protestants want to remain in
Great Britain, said King.
"This makes it extremely difficult to shuffle them off.
"I don't think that Scotland will
become independent," King said.
The parallel with Quebec is very
real, he said, "but, when I asked
my students if they would want to
keep Scotland in the United
Kingdom by force, the general
opinion expressed was that they
could all go screw."
"The British government has
been heavily financing Scotland for
years. Britain would not be too
worried about Scotland
separating," he said.
For many years there has been a
high degree of national feeling in
Scotland, King said.
"They have their own flag,
football teams and press. London
people read the Times, Edinburgh
people read the Scotsman."
Until very recently Britons have
been very happy, said King.
"Although our production is down,
our economy is growing at the rate
of two to three per cent per annum.
Average income levels are up," he
Future fee hikes
not ruled out
Student politicos met Friday
with the Universities Council of
B.C. to discuss possible student fee
increases and university budget
Paul Sandhu, Alma Mater
Society external affairs officer,
said the council is not against
raising tuition fees again.
"A number of people on the
council argued that tuition fees in
B.C. are the lowest in North
"They said students are getting a
good deal. Because tuition fees are
among the lowest in North
America, the council couldn't see
anything wrong with possible
tuition fee increases," Sandhu
UBC tuition fees were raised an
average of 25 per cent last year.
"We argued that having the
lowest tuition fees in perhaps the
country, and perhaps the continent, should be looked upon with
pride, rather than as an argument
for further fee increases," Sandhu
The council also cited an
American study of university
financing, the Carnegie report,
that states student tuition fees
should represent 15 per cent of
universities' budgets, Sandhu said.
Because tuition fees represent 10
per cent of our universities'
budgets, the council believes
tuition fees could be raised to what
the Carnegie report recommends
for American colleges and
universities, he said.
"A number of people on the
council felt tuition fees should be
indexed for yearly fee increases, so
that fees could be seen to represent
a specific portion of each years'
budget and students would then
know exactly what they were to
pay each year," he said.
"The students' position was that
the tuition fees had gone up 25 to 30
per cent last year and that they
shouldn't be increased again this
year," he said.
But council chairman Bill Armstrong said Monday the council
was certainly not in favor of fee
increases, especially considering
the sizeable fee increases of last
"The Carnegie report, and the
fact that the B.C. tuition fees are
among the 10 lowest of Canada,
were cited merely to demonstrate
that B.C. tuition fees are not
necessarily high," Armstrong
The students also raised the
issue of budget cutbacks and
argued that the students are obviously getting worse education
today than in the past, Sandhu
The council also argued that
since the universities spend 85 per
cent of their budgets on wages and
salaries, the universities should
take a firmer stand on salary and
wage settlements, Sandhu said.
"They pointed consistently to the
course load of professors and
argued that they (course loads)
should be increased," said Sandhu.
"They also criticized the large
number of older tenured professors
and the high salaries they are
"We attacked their arguments
about salaries and wages by saying
that the faculty association
bargains with the universities, and
if the wage settlements exceed
expectations, the universities have
to take money from other monies
provided by the government,"
Sandhu said.
"We also argued that the
government should be prepared to
over-finance the universities to
cover the high salaries of the older
professors because they will be
retiring over the next two or three
years and will be replaced by
younger and lower paid
professors," Sandhu said.
But Armstrong said the council
is not arguing for increased course
loads for professors.
"If money isn't available, a
heavier work load for professors
would be necessary," Armstrong
said. "Non-salary items like
libraries have certainly been
cutback enough, s° if the money
is not provided there will have to be
fewer staff," he said. "But this
depends on the government grants,
of course." Page 4

board members are now

As NDP education critic
Dennis Cocke put it, "it will

Students can depend on none
of the government appointees to oppose destructive
government policies, and the
prospect is for more tight-
money university budgets,
service reductions and tuition
increases during the three-
year terms of the new appointees.
By including Peterson,
who was part of the cabinet
which kept education spending as paltry as possible
during the high-growth
period of the 1960s and
ignored student protests for
higher-quality education,
McGeer is making quite clear
his plans which may include
the post of UBC administration president.
The callous nature of the
Socred government has been
impossible to ignore since the
day it took office, and the
appointments show that
students and the public in
general can look for little
improvement in today's poor
state of affairs.

that they are somewhat more'

End circumvention
Once again UBC must follow the
lead of the eastern campuses by
withdrawing economic support
from those corporations with investments in oppressive governments. The U of Winnipeg's board
of regents recently endorsed an
investment policy requiring the
sale of the university's stocks in
"socially injurious" corporations.
When will UBC's board of
governors initiate and effect a
similar policy? When will UBC
assume a responsible role within
the matrix of the university,
Canadian and global communities? UBC, like U of W, must
review its investments, and it must
do so with the intention of denying
economic support to those corporations affiliated with oppressive regimes.
The news of our censure by
several groups on campus was
greeted among engineers with the

small group of misdirected purists.

Due to the ambivalent legal
interpretation of the term
"trusteeship," UBC's board of
governors can circumvent the code
which prevents the board members from making investment
decisions. These members, two of

therefore fully capable of initiating

Library with hourly help, there is
no extra money for hiring additional staff.
Experience in Sedgewick on
weekend evenings and in Main on
Sunday evenings shows the amount
of use to be relatively light. Most of
the demand at such times is for
study space. Certainly, the amount
of use the Main Library would
receive would not justify cutting
back elsewhere in order to stay
open Saturday evenings.
The Main Library is open 89
hours a week during winter
session. Four years ago it was open
about 98 hours a week, but increased operating costs and the
university's general financial
situation made it necessary to
reduce library hours. Economies
were made in other areas as well.
Since then we have managed to
maintain the same schedule.
Whether we can continue to do so
will depend on the kind of financial
support the university receives in
At this time, any extension of
hours in the Main Library is most
unlikely, even during the period
prior to exams. Sedgewick is a
reasonable alternative for many
undergraduates and at least
provides  seating  for  those  who
We were pleased to see

Faculty reps elected to
the board, economics prof
and well-known Liberal Peter
Pearse and astronomy and
geophysics head Don Russell,
offer a small amount of
encouragement, given the
possibilities, and might fight
any severe financial punishment   imposed  on   UBC.
Ken Andrews, representing staff, will likely be the
only trade unionist on the
board. In the past he has
been quiet about policies
which have hurt students and
certainly haven't helped his
fellow workers.
The board is completed
with administration president
Doug Kenny and the chancellor, who will either be
socialist Stan Persky or lumber baron J. V. Clyne.
Barring Persky's election
and an.unforeseen change by
the Socreds before the next
board appointments, students can only depend on

emergency, Peters, Russell

must obtain materials from other
libraries. It should be possible to
arrange personal schedules to
allow for the fact that the Main
Library is closed Friday and
Saturday evenings by borrowing
needed materials and taking them
to Sedgewick or by using Main
during more of the 89 hours a week
it is open.
In the long run, the library's
priority must be to ensure that
higher operating costs do not make
it impossible to acquire the increasingly expensive collections
needed by students and faculty.
Inflation, together with the devaluation of the Canadian dollar,
have increased the cost of most
library materials by about 20 per
cent in the past year. In Dotto's
field, chemistry, periodicals are
among the most expensive
acquired by the library.
It seems clear that university
funding may require further
reductions and compromises in the
future. If this should prove to be
the case, it will be difficult to
maintain present operating
schedules and still provide the
collections and services that are
essential to a majority of library

UBC could be consumer factory
Congrats. Your article and
editorial (Jan. 19) did much to lay
to rest the rumors floating around
the campus on the so-called $1.4
million surplus. The decision was
made to try to benefit students
over the long term by purchases of
lab equipment and renovations
that otherwise would have never
Other things like bursaries might
have benefited, but no one raised
that before. It just shows the difficulty of decisions when one is
faced with equal demands that
benefit. However, money is set
aside by the budget for bursaries
and there is government money
and people leave money for these
needs (but not for equipment).
So in one sense, the need was
more urgent in these unglamorous
and forgotten areas of equipment.
A letter to The Ubyssey from
George Hermanson, UBC chaplain
and a former member of UBC's
board of governors. Perspectives
is open to all members of the UBC
It would not have happened
otherwise and students would have
to make do with no or poor
equipment or resources.
The crucial point you raise,
though, is the issue of how to
defend education. The question
about getting people concerned
about government policy in funding the university is very important.
While a study of cutbacks might
help in locating exactly where the
cuts are, I am not sure this would
address the problem of policy. By
looking at problems only from a
crisis approach, that is, activating
people around a crisis that is
immediate, we become self-
There is no long-range criticism
to maintain interest. For it seems
that when a crisis is dealt with,
even unsuccessfully, our attention
wanders from the problem. As
well, when we deal only with crisis
we begin to feel we are powerless
and feel helpless.
The loss of nerve is caused by
dealing with complex issues by only
activating people  around crises.
Further we come to believe that
the problem is only temporary
rather than one of basic attitudes
about the nature of society.
The issue in part is the
movement to self-interested
consumerism in education. It is in
competition with other views of
education. One opposing view sees
education as valuable because it
pushes the boundaries of
knowledge and imagination.
Or education is valuable because
it (supposedly) produces an articulate populace that can be more
in control of its destiny.
Or education should function
helping us identify how we fit into
the collective system we call
society. How and on what grounds
do we make moral decisions. And
that education makes us more
concerned with justice.
Another view has society
determining what education is
needed from a collectivist perspective. In this view, one "pays
back" society's investment by
service (if one becomes a doctor,
one serves where society determines there is a need, not where
the individual feels the most
money is to be made).
Against these traditional views is
the consumer. Follow the market
demands. The "if I invest x, I want
5x return on my education investment" attitude. This is part of
the pressure higher education
faces. People are disappointed in
education because it fails to answer the "me-ism" of the 70's.
People are no longer disappointed
when the university fails to address the need for social change or
more humane and ecological
I feel that many amongst the
student body buy into the free
market mentality. For one reason
or another, they are concerned
about whether their investment in
education is worthwhile in terms of
economic return. So if the current
student views himself/herself as a
consumer and if the values the
student holds are the same as those
who now control power, it is poor
analysis to act as if the students
can be appealed to as a class.
I submit that the so-called class

interest of students is middle and
upper, the very classes that keep
society unequal. It is a shame then
to build an opposition on this basis
as some sectarian groups do.
It is a mistake in analysis to
believe that the majority of
students are a resource for radical
To appeal, then, to the self-
interests of some groups, is only to
compound the pressure to make
the university into a consumer
factory. The question is, what or
whose interest is being served. To
maintain the status quo and get a
bigger piece of the pie by getting
education that is saleable? Or for
social change?
Thus if one begins to talk about
the impact of cutbacks which we
must do, one has to make clear the
philosophic grounds of that
analysis. Some might cheer if the
money is moved from low saleable
courses (like Greek) to more
saleable training (like accounting) . Just looking at cutbacks
tell us nothing about what the
policy decision is or the criteria
What I am suggesting is that the
pressure is society's attitude of
functional education. I do not mean
functional in the ability to help us
think. I mean that some believe
functional to mean that education
either benefits only the individual
or the interests of business and
economic growth. We need to form
our criticism of the university from
a more global perspective. Of how
our decisions affect our collective
futures, the earth's future, the
future of the poor and other less
developed countries. The
university needs critics. But not
critics who have bought into "me-
ism" as opposed to "we-ism."
A couple of final points. Moe
Sihota did not get "raked over the
coals" for his report on cutbacks.
And the reason "there is much
public confusion over the alleged
surplus" is due to the fact the
rumors started from misleading
and partial information that comes
from one source. The misinformation is due to a lack of serious
and critical analysis. And further
whatever analysis there is is based
on self-interest rather than a base
of collective consciousness.

Naturally UBC coach Donn
Spence reserved his praise for the
defensive play of his charges.
"There were no missed
assignments," said Spence. "We
did the job defensively when we
had to. We played better in the
second half but I wasn't too pleased
with the game.
"We allowed them to bully us.
Two of our guys were deliberately
injured. I don't think there is any
place in rugby for that sort of
thing. There are enough ways to
get hurt already."
For the most part the game was
a drab affair. A continuous
downpour led to a slippery ball and
a muddy crush, "which in turn lent
credibility to the atmosphere.

ELATION CONSUMES Alberta hockey players as puck rolls by UBC goalie Friday at Winter Sports Centre.
Advantage was short-lived, as 'Birds came from behind to beat University of Alberta 4-3, repeating with 6-5
win Saturday over previously-undefeated Golden Bears.
Fans lift pucksters to victory
It took a skating chicken to
charge up the fans, who sparked
the hockey 'Birds to two come-
from-behind wins over the second-
ranked Canadian college team
over the weekend.
The University of Alberta Golden
Bears couldn't beat 2,000 fans each
night and a hungry team, too,
falling 4-3 and 6-5 at the Winter
Sports Centre.
UBC head coach Bert Halliwell
said the fans made the difference.
"This is the first time this year we
have had a crowd behind us," he
Thunder (Chicken, UBC's answer
to the skating bear which romps at
Alberta's home games, came on
the ice between periods to harass
both the fans and the visitors. It
must have worked, because the
'Birds handed Alberta its first
losses this year through persistent
forechecking and aggressive play.
"UBC was checking better
tonight than they have in the past,"
said Alberta coach Clare Drake.
The 'Birds are in second place in
the Canada West University
Athletic Association at 9-5, while
Alberta is 14-2.
The 'Birds, who lost all four
previous games this season to
Alberta, weren't intimidated by
the visitors, but came out shooting
after the two brawls in Friday's
game. 'Bird captain Jim Stuart
scored the tying and winning goals
respectively after each of the third-
period fights, which saw UBC's
Dick Jellema, Tom Blaney and
John Dzus ejected along with three
Alberta counterparts.
In the first game, Alberta's Dave
Breakwell started the scoring with
his first of three goals that night by
turning UBC defenceman Sam
Bowman inside-out to get the shot
away. But Peter Moyls tied the
score quickly and Stuart put the
hosts ahead before the period
The second period was scoreless
because of the efforts of Alberta
goalie Ted Poplawski and Ron
Patterson from UBC. The game
turned rough when the referee let
the game get out of hand after
Breakwell completed his hat trick,
putting the visitors up 3-2.

shot, earning him the game puck.
"They gave me the game puck,
but I think it was a team puck
tonight," Fischer said.
Jim Carr opened the scoring for
the Golden Bears with two minutes
gone in the first period. Lane Lavik
tied the score at 10:50 of the
second, but the period ended 3-1
after Jim Cosgrove and Jim Lomas
tallied for Alberta.
The Bears were playing intense
hockey and it looked like UBC
would not be able to come back
after Carr put Alberta up 4-1 in the
second minute of the third.
But Thunder Chicken's performance before the period got the
fans fired up, and with the crowd
yelling "Go 'Birds go," UBC
mounted a comeback.
The 'Birds forced Alberta to
make mistakes in its own end, and
got goals from Jellema, Stuart and
Alberta upped the ante when
John Devaney scored with less
than five minutes to go, but Derek
Williams tied the game just 26
seconds later to force the overtime.
Ross Cory was sent off for

overtime, but a tenacious UBC
defence held off the Alberta power

anything to stop them.
Late in the game, standoff Garry
Hirayama and scrum half Preston
Wiley both made outstanding runs
through the bulk of the 'Lomas'
defense but each rush was stopped
inside 20 metres of the goal line.
The 'Lomas' best scoring opportunity came early in the second
half when they moved the ball into
touch inside the 'Bird one-metre
line. The UBC defense held off the
ensuing lineout, two five-metre
scrums and another scrum from
the seven in a goal-line stand that
would make football 'Bird coach

Most of the play was between the

reacted to the drubbing by commenting, "there's not much you
can do in games like that; just hope
that it will all be over quickly."
Over quickly it was, as UBC was

Parris and his 5'8" frame put the

points before the five-minute

numerous occasions, allowing 21
turnovers in all, compared to 11 for
the Vikings.
UBC had trouble adjusting offensively to UVic's constantly-
changing defence, but more than
that the 'Birds were just flat.
On the other hand, UVic coach
Ken Shields felt his team came up
with one of their best efforts of the
season, particularly on defence.
Friday's win increased the
