Array UBC eyes downtown hotels
The UBC housing administration
is considering going into the hotel
business to alleviate next year's
student housing crisis.
"We are planning to approach
the government to pick up a few
downtown hotels as student
residences," housing head Les
Rohringer said Wednesday.
Rohringer said buying a hotel
would cost as much as building
another residence comparable to
one of the Gage residences.
"But building new residences
would take as long as 24 months,"
he said. "Hotels are an immediate
"Increase in enrolment' is
planned for the next five years,
with l.OOOmore students next year.
With cash we could buy these
hotels by next September."
Stefan Mochnacki, Alma Mater
Society housing committee
chairman, praised the move by
Rohringer. He said his committee

has worked on a feasibility study
but has only had informal
discussions with provincial officials.
"Buying a hotel would be a very
attractive way to solve the housing
problem," he said. "There was a
recent overbuilding of hotels in the
downtown area.
"We could get new, high quality
places — not skid row at all —
perhaps with kitchenettes,, suites,
Rohringer made his remarks
when asked if the administration is
interested in buying any of the
financially troubled fraternity
Rohringer said the housing
problem will increase with
disappearance of the fraternities
but that the university is not interested in buying them.
"With the current housing
shortage, we need some incentive
to keep fraternities in business,"
he said. "The two fraternities sold
to Regent-College for classrooms
will be a dead loss.
"To buy up the frats is fine, but it
doesn't solve the housing
problem," he said. "With hotels,
we would pick up at least three
times as many rooms as the frats
would provide."
Rohringer said one of the ad
vantages of buying hotels is that
students would live in the community "as students have asked
for." He said the rooms would be
fully furnished.
However, Rohringer's former
convention manager said Wednesday Rohringer's plan may
reduce the total housing stock.
"If Rohringer plans to buy hotels
used by tourists, no trouble," said
Allison Watt, who is currently a
Universities   Council   researcher.

The 2,200 students are needed to
constitute a quorum — necessary
before any business can be conducted at the meeting.
But president-elect Jake van der

"I don't know how we're going to

He said several key problems

'Gooa* publishing, high rating no guarantee'
A former economics professor charged he
was denied tenure last year despite the fact
he had one of the highest teaching ratings in
the economics department and a respectable publishing record for his research.
A letter sent by former professor Dale Orr
last week to officials in the provincial
government and in the university administration has exposed the latest in a long
series of tenure squabbles to plague UBC.
And several sources contacted by The
Ubyssey indicate that the problem of
misplaced priorities in the granting of
tenure is widespread throughout the
In this and other tenure disputes, the
problem revolves around the research (or
lapk of research) done by the candidate for
tenure and the type of research done; It
appears that in these cases the fact that the
tenure candidate is rated highly as a teacher
is being ignored.
As Orr stated in a letter to outgoing Alma
Mater Society president Gordon Blankstein,
"everyone in the university community
claims to be sympathetic to the cause of
effective teaching.
"But, as my letter clearly reveals, senior
faculty sometimes do make tenure decisions
completely inconsistent with the university's objectives.
"When they do, their decisions remain
unchallenged by the administration. Neither
department heads, deans, the president,
senate, board of governors or the education
minister seem prepared to challenge the
senior faculties' sole right to make tenure
"They are likewise unwilling to infringe
on senior faculties' right to pass judgment
irrespective of the objective evidence
presented, or the obvious interests of the
students, the university, the public or the
academic community."
Orr, who now works for the federal
government in Ottawa, says he is raising the
issue of tenure because he feels the current
system does an injustice to the UBC
students and B.C. taxpayers, and does not
expect to derive any personal gain from his
His letter charges that several professors
other than himself were denied tenure by
the economics department despite the fact
they were rated as effective teachers.
In his own particular case, Orr included
data inside his letter from questionnaires
distributed to students which rated him as
one of the best teachers inside the
economics department at that time.
He said the research he has done would be
"more highly valued by others than by my
colleagues." Orr contends that his research
did not follow the right "approach" and thus
he was denied tenure.
This attitude permeates the economics
department, he says, and adds that if
faculty club discussions are any indication
this attitude is widespread in many other
Tenure is decided in each case by a
committee of previously tenured professors
who painstakingly examine each case and
come up with a recommendation. Their
decision is supposed to be based on three
These criteria are: quality of teaching,
quality of research, and service to the
university and to the community. Orr and
others charge that these criteria are not
being applied but that the special interests

technical reasons.
"We'll be in the middle of exams
in one month and there won't be a
chance of presenting our views to

secretary Rick Craig told the

into the meeting.
The committee was meeting in
one of four rooms formed by

room. The students folded the
walls to make one large room so
that as many students as possible
could crowd in and watch the

Smith, turned to the committee
member beside him and muttered:
"This can't continue."
He then leaned over and
whispered to Mugridge, a history
professor, who shook his head.
Smith walked out of the meeting.
"The meeting is no longer
quorate, and cannot discuss the
motion," said Mugridge.
Students began to boo and some
shouted: "We want, our money
back. Whose university is this."
"The reason we were deprived of
our quorum is because the gentlemen who left the meeting
declined to conduct the business of
this committee under these conditions," said Mugridge.
But student Susan Harrison said
she heard Mugridge tell Smith
someone had to leave the meeting.
Mugridge denied this and then
told students the committee tried
to get student opinion without
success and finally made its
recommendations without student

said. "We have decided to

He said the reason for not
reconsidering in less than one
month was that time was needed to
get more student feedback.
Craig suggested students could
organize a referendum "We'll do it
in one week."
Numerous students began
calling for a meeting of the committee in one week.
In the absence of a quorum, he
could not call a meeting, said
Mugridge. "But there will
probably be a meeting."
Student council treasurer Randy
Noonan, then pointed out that
Mugridge as committee chairman,
was responsible for^ calling
He asked Mugridge to call an
open meeting in one week,

But he said there would be no
commitment to a decision and no
commitment to future open
"Will the meeting be held in the
largest available forum," he was
Mugridge agreed and then adjourned the meeting and walked
out with other faculty.
Students remained and divided
into three committees to draft the
referendum, to produce posters,
pamphlets and banners and to
write articles for the Peak, the
student newspaper.

Students won't share — Barrett
Premier Dave Barrett told a
standing-room-only crowd here
Tuesday that the university system
produces students who "want 'X'
price for their skills with no
thought of sharing."
Barrett told about 1,200 students
in the SUB ballroom he could show
them Indian reservations only 150
miles from Vancouver where raw
sewage runs down village streets.
But if the UBC medical school
were to require students to work in
such places as part of its
requirements, "the first place to
resist would be the university," he
"Take the school of social work,"
Barrett, a former social worker,
said. "It's out here. But the people
who apply for welfare are down in
the guts and bowels of the city.
That's where the school of social
work should be."
Barrett was responding to a
student questioner who cited the
huge amount of talent available
among university students and
suggested an "idea foundation" to
make use of the talent for social
Barrett's response was in line
with an answer he gave to another
student questioner March 5 at the
annual commerce dinner.
There, he told students they are
privileged groups with a responsibility to provide a return to a
community that doesn't
necessarily support the vast
amount of money spent on them.
But this time Barrett pointed his
finger at "the system" that
produces money-oriented students
with no social conscience.
The premier's appearance
Tuesday was billed by NDP club
vice-president John Haggerty, who
introduced Barrett, as "the first
time in over a decade that a
premier has chosen to speak in an
open meeting of students at this
(Barrett's audience at the
commerce dinner last week was
restricted to commerce alumni,
faculty and students, and there
was a price on tickets.)
The last'time a premier spoke to
UBC students was in 1958 when W.
A. C. Bennett was pelted with lunch
bags and apple cores and was
booed. Bennett never returned.
Barrett received his share of
heckling from students Tuesday,
although his remarks were more
often applauded and cheered.
Asked by a student why he appeared at UBC, Barrett replied:
"Because I have a low I.Q." The
audience roared.
In his speech, the premier ran
down the list of government
achievements in the field of
resources, but said little he had not
said many times before.
Asked later why he chose to
speak to students about resources

had asked him to. Barrett more
usually at "meet-the-people"
gatherings cites all the major
programs his government has

Stanley Knight are planning appeals of their dismissals. The other
three researchers have foregone
appeals and have publicly charged
that department bureaucrats, not
Dailly, control her department.
Barrett told hecklers in his
audience he could not comment on
the firings because of the appeals.
Asked later to comment on those
who are not appealing, Barrett
said their cases and those of the
appellants cannot be separated.
In his speech, Barrett said B.C.
resource development has
historically been characterized by
a "boom and bust" syndrome.
"All you had to do was give away
half the province and everybody
would be prosperous," he said.
Noting the famous plans by Alex
Wenner-Gren to build a monorail
down the Rocky Mountain Trench,
Barrett said that under previous
governments "we have always
been presented with these exotic,
romantic fantasies to keep our
minds off reality in this province."
Meanwhile natural gas was sold
to the Americans at 33 cents per
1,000 cubic feet until the NDP came
to power, he said. The NDP raised
the price to 57 cents, then $1.
He said the federal government
allowed the $1 price after B.C. had
asked for a price of $1.35, and
public hearings on the request.
"Some cynics said the federal
government didn't want hearings
on the natural gas industry. But
I'm not a cynic," he said sarcastically. "They're just doing the
best they can for the people of

The federal government is still
giving away resources, he said.

Protesters seek improved daycare
Women protesting for improved

signatures Wednesday on a

board of governors.
The group of 20 women circulated the petition at a meeting in

"We the undersigned, believe the
administration must now

for daycare, and its responsibility

the petition states.
The women, headed by Lynn
Batten and Lora (Jlabush of the
women's office, told 100 people in
the conversation pit the university

on campus.

protest was a "remarkable success."

Polisci sets first arts plagiarism policy
The political science department
has adopted a formal set of
procedures for dealing with
plagiarism, making it the first arts
faculty department to do so.
The department recently endorsed a recommendation from a
student-faculty committee which
standardizes the department
procedure for dealing with
plagiarism and changes its status
from a private matter between
student and professor to one involving the department head.
In cases where an instructor
suspects substantial or complete
plagiarism, the matter will be first
discussed with the student involved
and then if plagiarism is still
believed to exist the department
head will be informed.
"The head and the instructor will
determine   the   penalty,   after
having provided the student with a
further opportunity to state his or
her case," states the committee's
In less serious cases the instructor will determine the penalty
after providing the student with an
opportunity to discuss the matter
and after informing the department head of the case.
Plagiarism is defined by the
department committee as taking
the thoughts or writings of
someone else and passing them off
as ope's own.
"Substantial plagiarism exists
when the writer has in more than a
few cases copied phrases and/or
sentences while making it appeal-
"Complete plagiarism exists
when the person submits as her or
his own work what has been
completely copied or completely
written by some other person," the
committee stated.
"We've had several notable
cases in the last few years,"
political science prof Paul Tennant
said in an interview.
"Plagiarism has always been
regarded as a very private matter
between student and instructor and
had been dealt with in various
ways which ranged in giving zero
in the course to doing the work over
again," Tennant said.
He said there is no mention of
penalties in the committee's report
but "in time precedents will build
The committee of politcal sci
student reps Ricki Lambert and
Maureen   Boyd   and   headed   by
Tennant, learned that no arts
department has any formal set of
written procedures for dealing
with plagiarism and in the
majority of cases the instructor is
left to determine appropriate
action, he said.
"Most departments mentioned
that plagiarism stemmed from
students' ignorance of what good
writing is," Tennant said. He
added that most departments also
regarded it as an ethical matter.
Tennant noted that the university has no formal rule concerning
procedures or penalties.
Administration president Walter
Gage said Wednesday that
plagiarism cases are handled by a
senate discipline committee or
university faculty committee if
they are brought to his attention.
daycare and they supported us."
Batten said about 75 children
attended classes with their
mothers Wednesday as part of the
protest. The children disrupted
many classes and brought attention to the protest, she said.
Batten said the university should
hire a co-ordinator to provide a link
between daycare organizers and
the administration. She said the coordinator would communicate
daycare needs to the administration who could in turn
apply for available provincial
grants to meet the needs.
"I think we have shown the
administration that not only is
there a need for daycare, but
people are beginning to demand
it," Batten said. "They are not
going to get away with ignoring
daycare any more."
The eight Acadia Park huts
housing UBC's daycare facilities
are inadequate and too far from
the main campus according to
Batten. The university must
eventually provide facilities for
children in campus buildings
where student mothers have
classes, she said.
University daycare council coordinator Sue Mclnnes said
Wednesday she supports the
demands of the daycare
Mclnnes said the daycare co-ops
she helps operate in Acadia Park
need more space as well as money
to renovate the daycare huts.
There is a waiting list of 150
children to get into existing
facilities, she said. Page 4

That's the first yahoo for council
It's pat on the back time on the
old editorial page.
Yes friends, we're dusting off the
phrases for praises — and God knows
they're pretty dusty from a lack bf
use this past year, since nothing
much has been accomplished.
But at any rate, this praise goes to
science rep Ron Walls, who has
worked through the library data
processing centre committee to keep
that facility off the SUB greenbelt.
Praise also, goes to, in some
measure, the Alma Mater Society
council, which supported the bid to
have the siting moved. And (blush) it
even goes to AMS president Gordie
Blankstein for making the
appropriate noises at the appropriate
time about student objection to the
site: Which is all we can expect.
As everyone is aware by now, the
library data processing centre was to
have been moved from the stifling
top floor of the main library and
placed smack on the greenbelt at the
southwest corner of SUB property.
But that proposal has been very
nearly changed, so that in all
likelihood, the centre will be put in
the little parking lot on the
northwest corner of the main library.
The committee has even asked the
architect to draw plans for the
building to be located mainly
underground, like Sedgewick library.
Now that's a step forward both in
siting ^and in architectural concept.
And it will mean, by the time this
vast underground library complex is
finished, head librarian Basil
Stuart-Stubbs will have the only
Maginot line outside of France.
Congratulations Ron, council and
(blush) Gor.. . no, we couldn't do it
twice . . . the executive. You done
The Che Guevara underground library
And while we're talking about
new buildings, it might be time to
look into who names the things so
we don't come up with some of the
doozies we have now.
Like the Henry Angus building.
Did you know the real, live,
in-the-flesh Angus sat on the Special
Committee on Orientals set up in
this province at the end of 1940 to
deprive Canadians of Japanese
descent of their land and property?
And that he was still on the
committee after the war when these
people were returned about five
cents on the dollar of their
investment. -
And Cecil Green Park. The real
Green is the president of Texas
Instruments, which manufactures
armaments, among other things. He
has been called one of the big 10
among the Vietnam war profiteers.
Then theres's the Macdonald
dentistry building. That's named
after former university president
John B. Macdonald, whose short
tenure is only slightly less
remarkable than the amount of nTess
he made on campus while he was
here. He's the one who hired a firm
of San Francisco consultants to alter
the university plan.
So they took SUB from its
planned location where Angus is now
— the logical place which would have
put it right at the centre of campus
for everyone to use — and plunked it
by     Brock.
So while we're naming new
buildings, why don't we bring in
some good names? Like the Che
Guevara underground library. The
Mao Tse-tung Asian Centre. The
Cesar Chavez agriculture building,
the Norman Bethune medical centre,
the Mickey Mouse administration
building, the Dave Barrett mining
building .. . .
I am upset. Malcolm McGregor
has violated every canon of
decency by descending into the
cesspool of democratic politics.
Worse still, he has stolen the
electoral thunder of the left.
As a result, I feel it only just to
throw my hat into the arena as a
candidate of the right. If annointed
to the deanship of the faculty of
arts as the establishment's choice,
I would:
1) Abolish all headships of
departments and concentrate
power into my own hands.
2) Limit participation in
departmental and faculty
meetings to full professors, and
more particularly, professors
3) Close down The Ubyssey and
transfer its operations to UBC
4) Abolish all structures within a
one-mile radius of the faculty club,
in order that the provincial
headquarters of Alcoholics
Anonymous enjoy easier access by
faculty members.
5) Bring back Savonarola to
enforce chastity and morals —
through capital punishment if
6) Reimpose the wearing of
academic robes by all members of
the university.,
7) Legislate the use of Latin as
the language of instruction
throughout the faculty of arts.
8) Restrict admisstion to
university a) to the top 0.1% of
those writing special university
admission examinations; b) to all
those whose family income exceeds $50,000 per annum; c) to
scions of the landed aristocracy.

We have a not so simple answer
for your simple complaint, chem 4.
We are well aware of the
collective odors vented into the
walkway between the home
economics building and the Hebb
Theatre. Since there is very little
"cooking" done in the home
economics building, the only explanation we can offer, for this
"putrid smell"' must be our
research animals (yes, we do have
lab rats, etc.)
Just for the record, of the 60 units
required for a B.H.E. degree, only
three units are applied to experimental food preparation. You
may find it hard to believe, but we
do actually involve ourselves in
courses concerning consumerism,
housing, human development, the
family, nutrition, finance, communications and professionalism,
among others.
If you want some wonderful
baking odors to waft past your
collective nostrils, try taking a
stroll past the Delly in SUB.
Regarding odors in general, we,
all as past chem 230 students, have
noticed there are a few chemicals
that don't smell totally pleasant,

An open letter to the "true
socialist" who was slashed to
shreds by Dave Barrett in the
recent meeting in SUB ballroom:
It is interesting to note that Dave
was much more tolerant and understanding of the questions and
arguments that .came from the
political right than he was with
those from the left. It is a well-
known psychological phenomenon
that people react most strongly to
things in others which they
recognize as similar qualities in
Dave Barrett could bear with the
arguments of geologists et al; he
was calm and cool and made his
stand without making them look
naive or ridiculous.
But when the unfortunate fellow
with the socialist rhetoric accused
Dave of being just another tool of
industrial capitalism, the premier
left the poor soul in abject embarrassment and misery.
If my amateur psychological
perception is at all accurate, the
• assemblage saw evidence that
Dave's true sentiments were with
the miserably deflated pure-of-
heart socialist whom he was forced
to cut to shreds.
Barrett is striking a somewhat

Barrett 2
On Tuesday afternoon March
11, 1975 Premier Dave Barrett
challenged the Pacific Life
Community to raise $1,000 to send
two delegates to the conference for
a nuclear-free Pacific on April 1 to
6, saying that he would match us
with $1,000 from the government.
It is crucial that concerned U.S.
and Canadian citizens join forces
with the other Pacific Rim nations
in an all-out attempt to stop the
proliferation of nuclear weapons.
It is vitally important that we act
now, in light of the fact that the
American military is'building the
most powerful nuclear submarine
system ever.
The Trident submarines will be
harbored-at the base presently
being constructed just 50 miles
south of our border at Bangor,
Washington on the Hood Canal.
The strait of Juan de Fuca
provides the only access to the
Pacific Ocean and the subs will be
cruising in jointly owned
Canadian-U.S. waters 10 miles
south of Victoria. The base will
harbor 10 subs, each carrying 408
nuclear warheads with a range of
6,000 miles.
These are first strike nuclear
weapons masquerading as defence
weapons. Areas of B.C. and Northwestern Washington have been
termed, "collateral damage" in
the event of a nuclear attack. We
can effect a change — it will
require a lot of hard work and
dedication by many people.
Barrett laid it on us during his talk
in the SUB ballroom — if we want
change, we must create it, we can't
just sit passively by and let the
government or someone else do it.

Your various articles regarding
fraternities in Tuesday's edition of
The Ubyssey is an outstanding
example (journalism students take
note) of sloppy reporting.
Your facts are suppositions, your
pictures are incorrectly labeled,
and your content is biased. I would
have thought that an issue
deserving of headlines in your
publication would have been more
thoroughly researched. If you
would like to discuss our situation,
I would be glad to talk to you first

situation related to others on - a
misconstrued, second-hand basis.
We have not "sunk," nor are we
"sinking into irrelevancy." It is a
fact that our numbers are growing,
and we are economically sound. It
is not my intention to change your
cynical attitude about fraternities,
but rather an attempt to convince
you to tell it like it is.

Four particularly glaring errors
were evident in the Tuesday issue
of The Ubyssey.
The first being the statement
made by university bursar William
White that fraternities are ". . .no
longer as .popular. ..." as they
used to be and that they are dying
Nothing could be further from
the truth. On the contrary,
fraternities are currently experiencing a surge in popularity
and membership is on the increase.

written on page four (presumably

Fraternities have "... sunk

irrelevancy. . . ."
Tell us all about it, Lesley.
The question is, what do you
really know about fraternities? A
few third-hand facts and stories
that get better every time they are
told, or maybe a scene or two from
the late show?
I fail to see what is irrelevant
about an organization that encourages fellowship and goodwill
in an active social context,
academic excellence, and participation in all forms and levels of
the intramural sports program.
For the last 35 years the
fraternities have hosted charity
fund raising events such as
Songfest and Mardi Gras.
(Why not go to the Sunny hill
Hospital for crippled children, and
ask the kids if the donated leg
braces they wear are irrelevant?)
Thirdly, Frank Stanzl does not
own all the fraternity lands. The
only lots that he has ever owned on
fraternity row are the two lots that
he recently sold. The rest are
either self-owned or are leased
from the provincial government,
several on 35-year leases
renewable at the option of the
individual fraternites for an additional 35 years. They are not
likely to give them up!
Fourthly, there is not a single
fraternity house presently being
run on a co-operative basis. Only
during the summer months do any
houses adopt this method and even
then it is at the most, only two of

I would like to challenge your
•editorial of Tuesday, March 11,
1975. Your statement 'Because
after all,  fraternities have sunk
finally and peacefully into total
irrelevancy (thank God) and if
only frats were in question the
buildings might have followed
them.' is blatantly ridiculous.
Another statement which you
made:.'Now that fraternities are

closing up,' who told you fraternities are no longer as popular?

In response to all these letters
printed above: perhaps we
shouldn't have said "sunk into
irrelevancy" since both the frats
and the sororities have always
wallowed in that particular
mudhole. They have little or no
relation to reality, but are rather
escapist clubs whose members
occasionally make the heartwarming gesture of giving a kid a
pair of crutches.
Secondly, fraternities have
suffered a slump as of late. No
more is there the campus-wide
rush and hazing [and we again
thank God]. Maybe people are
starting to congregate once more,
but that's a tiny upswing compared
to past performance.
After reading Lesley Krueger's
account of the recent conference on
social democracy and particularly
the version of my own talk, I think
it would be useful to clarify what
was actually said.
Since I was forced to go at an
enormous speed (at one point, I
think, lapsing into tongues), I can
understand Krueger's difficulty in
taking notes.
I apologize for not having copies
available at the time, but what I
did say — which is the opposite of
what was reported in a number of
areas — can be verified by the text
or by the tape recordings of the
session. Several points in particular should be clarified:
(1) I did not ignore the
"essential contradiction in society
as outlined by theoretician Karl
Marx." In fact, I argued that was
often described as the contradiction between capital and
wage-labor was developed by
Marx as two contradictions: one
between capital as property and
capital as function and another,
between capital as function and
wage-labor. And, I noted that Marx
developed this contradiction
between capital-owners and
capitalist functionaries quite fully
— and that he himself considered
the functioning capitalist to be the
real exploiter of labor.
(2) I asserted (but didn't think it
necessary to argue) that capitalist
functionaries who were not capital-
owners (roughly comparable to
Galbraith's "technostructure")
were an increasingly important
body in advanced capitalism,
whereas capital-owners (as Marx
had foreseen) were increasingly
superfluous in the production
(This point, as I noted, in no way
suggests that this technostructure
has autonomy; nor does it ignore
the power of finance capital.)
However, I at no point described
the functionaries of capital as "a
new petit-bourgeoisie." This
description, which has been employed by some writers, obscures
more than it illuminates: it turns
attention away from the central
role of the "technostructure" in the
labor process and presents, instead, the image of a body of small
property owners.
(3) I argued that the technostructure, which exists in a contradiction with both capital-owners
and also wage-labor, was the
dominant element in social
democracy. And this, I suggested,
explains the ability of a techno-
structure-dominated social
democracy to move both against
private capital-owners and also
against workers (in defence of the
capitalist function). The ultimate
ideal of the technostructure, I
argued, was state capitalism —
"two, three, many B.C. Hydro's."
(4) The central issue, then, is
how to explain the ideological
hegemony of the technostructure
over workers and the traditional
petit-bourgeoisie in a social
democratic party.
(This is, of course, not a particularly pressing problem for
those who have already wished
away workers from a social
democratic party (and the hold of
social democracy over the working
class) or who have their answers in
incantations about "misleader-
ship" and "reformism").
I suggested that, to the extent
that the dominant contradiction in
advanced capitalism was between
the social nature of capital and its
private ownership, the technostructure could advance (and
believe) its own particular solution
— the ending of private ownership
— as the general solution for all
society. And, characteristically, to
do so as a means of ending the
irrationality of private ownership
of capital — rather than as a
means of ending the hierarchy and
exploitation associated with the
capitalist function.
I further suggested that it was
precisely the inroads against
private capital — and the enmity
generated  among   capital-owners
— taken by a iocial democratic
government which secured the
allegiance pf workers and the
traditional petit-bourgeois in the
social democratic party.
(5) Finally, it is critical to
consider how the ideological
hegemony of the technostructure
can be challenged. I argued that
what the social democratic
government under the domination
of the technostructure, given its
orientation to hierarchy and
planning from above, can not abide
is the existence of movement and
centres of power from below —
that maintenance of the capitalist
function is not compatible with
power from the bottom up, and that
it is here that social democracy
and socialism part company.
I focused on two issues in this
context — workers' control and
community control. (I admit I did
this rather cryptically, and
Krueger's article says more than I
did about it — although it says the
opposite of what I said.)
Workers' control — obviously,
because that is precisely the ending of the hierarchy and
despotism associated with the
capitalist function; it represents
the ending of the capitalist function
as such.
Community control — because it
represents the reabsorption of the
state by society itself, because in
of control from below it represents
(as Marx noted in his writings on
the Paris Commune) the political
form under which to work out the
emancipation of. labor.
(My comment about the
receptivity of the traditional petit-
bourgeoisie to community control
clearly confused Krueger. Suffice
it to note that an axiom of Marxist
strategy is to identify the issues
through which the working class
can establish ideological
hegemony over other classes —
such as the petit-bourgeoisie.)
Thus, the struggle on the issues
of workers'control and community
control — both of which assert the
right of people to control collectively their own lives and which
demand power from the bottom up
— is central in the struggle against
the hegemonic position of the technostructure, the functionaries of
capital, who assert the right (and
"rationality") of power from the
top down.
I did not suggest that either
position is the position of the technostructure or of social democracy
as such. However, I would argue
that both these issues have been
consistently — more so than
elsewhere — the position of the left,
opposition elements in the B.C.

However, he noted that two cents

The dilemma of
Canada student aid
For Canadian
University Press
Student groups are growing
uneasy and frustrated these days
concerning expected changes in
government student aid policy.
Student organizations fear the
increasing cost of post-secondary
education will be placed upon the
student. Tuition fees will be raised
thev argue, loans will be increased
and grants. decreased or cut off
The more optimistic predict that
students will end up owing $5,000 to
$6,000 upon graduation. But others,
perhaps more realistic, suggest a
resulting debt somewhere between
$11,000 and $15,000, depending on
the length and type of degree

Increased accessability to post-
secondary education became a

While it was one thing to make
speeches about universal accessability, it was another to get
the government to finance the
proposition. Providing students
with bursaries, scholarships and
other forms of financial grants was
consistent with the idea of
education as a social right. But
simply making it easier for
students to borrow money to pay
for their education was a cheap

ing a new policy that promises a
better deal. But the very structure
and machinery operating behind
the federal-provincial student
program deems effective opposition a difficult task.
First of all, most Canadian
students have little understanding
of how important the role of the
federal government is in student
Because the loan scheme is
administered by the provinces for
the federal government, most
student groups go after provincial
bureaucrats and politicians when
they seek change.
But it is the federal government,
although usually in conjunction
with the provinces, that formulates
the basic student aid policy and is
responsible for future amendments
to the program.
There is no doubt that pressure
on the provincial level is vital to
the financial improvement of
students. But carrying demands to
the federal level could provide
long-term benefits.
With that in mind it is necessary
to take a closer look at the role of
the federal government in the past
and speculate on its future position
on student aid.
Though many students may
understand the general substance
of the Canada Student Loans Act
through their own transactions, not
much seems to be known of the
specific provisions of this statute of
Parliament or how it came about.
Passed in 1964, the act marked
the decision of the federal
government to get involved
financially in assisting students
who otherwise would not be able to
attend college or university.
The government was probablv
influenced by much of the writing
and publicity at the time regarding
the elitist nature of higher
education in Canada. Academics,
politicians, journalists and
especially parents, called for a
change in public policy in post
secondary education.
They wanted a system of
financing student education which
recognized that schooling beyond
the secondary level was not a
privilege for those whose families
agreed to guarantee loans for
education purposes up to a
stipulated amount, and to cover the
interest payments until six months
after the student had finished
school. Students had to be "in
need" and agree to pay the money
back out of future earnings.
. The provinces were to administer the loan applications and
authorize payments under the plan
in accordance with regulations
passed by the federal cabinet.
These regulations concern the
definition of a student, terms of
repayment, default procedures
and banking transactions.
Under the act, overall responsibility for implementation of the
plan rests with the finance
minister. Until a change in 1970,
the total amount of federal loans to
be authorized under the act and the
loan ceiling per student per
academic year, was stipulated in
the act itself.
Since then the finance minister
has been given a formula to allow
for automatic annual increases in
the total budget. The loan ceiling,
though still contained in the act, is
raised periodically through a
"supplementary estimates" vote
of the House of Commons.
From a political perspective,
and from the viewpoint of those
interested in improving financing
available for .students, one of the
most significant aspects of the act
is its silence on what constitutes
need and how it is determined.
Consequently, the major
questions'of how much aid is to be
received, whether patental contributions should be a factor, and
all other matters relating to whom
the CLSP would benefit were taken
out of the public forum which
Parliament to a limited extent,
This decision-making vacuum
was inevitably filled by a consortium of federal-provincial
bureaucracies. They, rather than
the politicians have ended up
quietly making vital social policy
decisions about student aid.
Deep in the bowels of the federal
Finance Department is the
Guaranteed Loans Administration,
which deals with student loans.
According to GLA chief F. C.
Passy, the interest of his unit in the
CSLP extends to the administrative areas of "the
repayment phase of the plan" and
matters related to "lenders,
repayment or collection." Larger
student aid policy concerns, he
says, are dealt with elsewhere.
From this it could be assumed
that Passy and the members of his
department are simply program
administrators, responding to
policy directives formulated by the
policia-ns in consulation with other
But Passy is also chairman of an
almost clandestine group of
federal and provincial bureaucrats
called the Canada Student Loan
Plenary Group.  Passy says this

province receive the . same
As chairman, he says his job
consists of "obtaining a concensus
among provincial views in order to
arrive at recommendations (for
the finance minister) and to ensure
the intent of federal legislation is
It is difficult to discover whether
Passy's plenary group does deal
only with procedure and administrative matters, or whether it
actually makes decisions of a
substantive policy nature.
This information is unobtainable
because the body meets in closed
sessions and releases no minutes
or records except for one — the
Canada Student Loans Plan Administrative Criteria.
The first section, entitled Basic
Principles begins: "The responsibility for the cost of post-
secondary education to the individual student remains
primarily with the parent
(guardian or immediate family)
and/or the student."
This basic principle is clearly not
'Put that light out! This stuff's inflammable!"
a mere administrative criterion.
It is a statement of social policy
which has been frequently
challenged by various groups
seeking a better student aid deal. It
is not contained in the act or in the
regulations passed by the
politicians. It is an example of
special policy formulation
masquerading as mere administrative problem solving,
undertaken by the civil service
with the passive approval of the
elected legislators.
Other than that one published
document we know nothing of other
policy decisions the plenary might
But a document recently leaked
from another government body
dealing with the student aid
question provides us with a report
of whiat was decided in the 1974
meeting of the plenary.
Included in the report were
references to aid for part-time
students, raising of the student
loan ceiling' to $1,900 per year
(which could happen in 1976-77),
calculation of the parental contribution tables, and hence a
working definition of what constitutes "need."
Although there is no expected
increase in the number of students
enrolling in the coming years, the
report states that "the actual
outlay by the federal government
in terms of CSL would increase
sharply in 1975-76 and even more so
in succeeding years."
This can only mean a greater
debt upon graduation for students
if the loans are increased.
As chairman of the plenary,
Passy takes the "provincial
concensus" back to John Turner,
for consideration and approval.
The critical point isn't that
Turner takes advice from federal
and provincial bureaucrats on how
to run the CSLP, but that there are
no other groups which share in this
mandate. There exists no vehicle
by which concerned parties can
learn of let alone comment on,
proposed policy changes.
And even when the whole plan, is
being "modified" through administrative declaration into a
scheme resulting in graduates
having their income drained for
years, there is no way to inform or
accommodate public opinion in the
decision-making process.
The other federal department
playing a role in student aid, is the
educational support branch of the
Secretary of State's office.
According to Passy, it concerns

"In the past, kibbutzim went
overboard in their insistence on
equality of consumption demanding that women conform to a male
image," she said.
She said there are two solutions
to bring back equality of the sexes
on kibbutzim. Either division of
labor could be ceased to eliminate
specialized identities or care of
human needs could be given more
prestige and power, she said.
"Kibbutz women are presently
becoming aware of the problems
and are trying to bring back the
feeling that equality exists," said

Hewlett-Packard introduces
a smaller uncompromising
calculator: the HP-21 Scientific.
Now $159.00 buys:
More power than our HP-35. 32 pre-programmed functions and operations vs. 22 for
our HP-35. The HP-21 performs all log and
trig functions, the latter in radians or degrees.
It's our only calculator short of the HP-45 that
lets you:
• convert polar to rectangular coordinates, and
back again (-»P,->R);
• do full register arithmetic (M+, M—, MX,
• calculate a common antilog (10X) with a
single keystroke.
The HP-21 also performs all basic data
manipulations (1/x, yx, Vx"" "") and executes
all pre-programmed functions in one second or
less. In sum, it's designed toT solve tomorrow's
problems as well as today's.
Smaller size. 6 ounces vs. 9 ounces for our
Full display formatting. The display key (DSP)
lets you choose between fixed decimal and
scientific notation and lets you control the num
ber of places displayed. (The HP-21 always
uses all 10 digits internally.)
If a number is too large or small for fixed
decimal display, the HP-21 switches automatically to scientific. It never confuses a smaller
number with zero.
Finally, if you give the HP-21 an impossible
instruction, the Display spells E-r-r-o-r.
RPN logic system. Here's what this unique
logic system means for you:
• You can evaluate any expression without
copying parentheses, worrying about hierarchies or re-structuring beforehand.
• You can solve all problems your way—the
way you now use when you use a slide rule.
• You solve all problems—no matter how complex—one step at a time. You never work
with more than two numbers at once.
• You see all intermediate answers immediately.
The HP-21 executes each function immediately after you press the function key.
• You can easily backtrack when you err. The
HP-21 performs all operations sequentially.
• You can re-use numbers without re-entering
them. The HP-21 becomes your scratch pad.
H-P quality craftsmanship. One reason Nobel
Prize winners, astronauts, conquerors of Everest, America's Cup navigators and over 500,000
other professionals own H-P calculators.
Your bookstore will give you a demonstration today. Challenge our new HP-21 with
your problems. See for yourself how much performance $159.00* can buy. If your bookstore
doesn't have the HP-21 yet, call your local

'Tenure — impressing seniors'
From page 1
f those making tenure decisions

A tenure decision can be ap-
jaled to the personnel services
>mmittee of the faculty
ssociation, but this committee
rely overturns tenure decisions.
But behind these impressive
oking guidelines and the public
atements of the administration
rks the sordid truth.
"There are people in the ad-
linistration who know what is
)ing on and they don't want to say
," Orr said in an interview
"If you want tenure in the
:onomics department, you must
ipress the senior faculty men."
He added that decisions are not
iade with the best interests of
udents or the public in mind
;spite statements to the contrary.
"If they are given a free choice
who they choose, they choose the
jople who do research that is
iost compatible with what is going
i in the department."
Orr said he "published, more
lan most of them do and in better
lurnals than most of them do."
ut, he said, his research was not
;emed to be suitable when he was
jjected for tenure.
Orr said after he sent his case to
le arts dean, who at that time was
irrent president-designate Doug
enny, his case was sent back for
^consideration but was again
The arts dean has little control
over tenure committees and can
only work for consistency in these
decisions, Orr said.
"Decisions come from year to
year and they just don't fit
Kenny said in an interview
Wednesday that a professor's
peers are the people most qualified
to make tenure decisions.
He said tenure decision-making
procedures "could be better" and
added he will "keep them under
review." Kenny said he thinks that
"things aren't in bad shape."
Faculty who wish to devote
themselves exclusively to teaching
can become senior instructors, and
people who wish to devote themselves to the dual "objectives of
teaching and research can work as
professors, he said.
"I don't know of a single
department that only recruits a
certain type of person," Kenny
said in response to the accusations
that tenure procedures restrict the
type of faculty given tenure.
Administration president Walter
Gage said through a spokesman
that Orr's letter is under study but
he was unavailable for comment
on the whole tenure situation.
Acting arts dean Robert Will was
also unavailable for comment.
The tenure issue, because it
affects the careers of many people,
is a touchy issue subject issue
shrouded in secrecy. Many people
contacted by The Ubyssey refused
to comment on the issue or wished
to remain anonymous.
One faculty member said
"research performance counts and
teaching performance doesn't
count." He added that this attitude
is held "right throughout the whole
He said several tenure decisions
in the past few years were decided
on the basis of personality conflicts.
Another faculty source said in
one tenure decision, the candidate's "teaching abilities were
unquestioned, but they didn't get
much accounting."
"Not much was done to keep a
good teacher on campus," he
"You want to give people the
freedom to research without fear
of getting their knuckles rapped by
governments and other institutions," he'said. "It comes at a
hell of a price."
Many people held conflicting
views in the particular case of Orr,
he said.
Another faculty member contacted by The Ubyssey said he
thought tenure decisions were
made conscientiously but added he
was not happy with all of their
Economics head Ron Shearer

The problem of tenure decisions
exists, in most departments, but to
differing degrees in each department.
Controversy followed the
decision earlier this year to refuse
tenure to commerce professor
John Evans under similar circumstances to Orr's case.

psychology department have been

because of the type of research
they do.
"UBC has a tradition of not
stressing teaching enough," incoming AMS president Jake van
der Kamp said. "We will be
pressing for student voices on
tenure and promotion committees."
Board of governors member
George Hermanson said the board
has done little about the tenure
issue, and added, "the board is
moving like the rest of the
university — slowly."
Student senator Gordon Funt
said he wants student and public
participation in tenure committees.
"If good people like Dale Orr get
kicked around like that, then few
good people will come here."
Funt added that the recent
tenure decisions break UBC
traditions of good teaching,
exemplified in people like Walter
Gage and  Malcolm  MacGregor.

self with "matters of broader
tudent aid significance." As far as
le CSLP itself is concerned, this
ranch keeps a watchful eye on
'hether the plan is meeting its
itended objectives.
And Secretary of State Hugh
'aulkner, claims it isn't.
He told an audience of university
dministrators last November that
le plan was created to provide "a
lechanism capable of correcting
ome of the inter-regional and
iter-personal inequities in
ducational opportunities which
/ould otherwise prevail."
In other words the CSLP was to
rovide poor people and those in
oorer regions an opportunity for
ducation similar to those who
'ere rich, or from a rich region.
But because there are still
ockets of disadvantaged in-
ividuals who don't make it to
niversity, Faulkner feels the
!SLP has not worked.
"It is not enough to'compare the
ocio-economic and regional
omposition of the student body
/ith the composition of the total
opulation when we know full well
here remain disadvantaged individuals who belong to groups
Mch tend to receive the least
mounts of education," he said.
According to the Secretary of
Itate, the continued existence of
ocial inequality in post-secondary
ducational opportunities must
ause us to take a "sober" look at
he whole CSLP.
It isn't enough that the student
lid system has a proven ability to
nake progress in lessening class
tnd regional barriers in Canadian
ociety; it has failed to eliminate
uch inequality and this is not good
mough for Faulkner and the Just
Society envisioned by his government.
For this reason Faulkner would
have us "begin to examine the
financial needs of students in light
of what is being done for other
groups in terms of income maintenance, and treat this
question ... as a genuine social
security  pre-employment  issue."
In other words, if a student
and/or his/her parents qualify for
welfare assistance then so be it.
Rut for the vast majority of middle
income students social justice
dictates loan rather than grant
He omitted reference to the other
advantage of loans over grants —
that loans are a cheap form of
government aid compared with
Faulkner did make reference to
the current direction of federal
thinking as far as setting tuition
fees is concerned. "To the extent
that federal support enables institutions to hold down tuition fees"
he said "many relatively well-off
students might be unjustifiably
So social justice as defined not
only means loans instead of grants
for the vast majority, it also means
increased tuition fees.
Faulkner again declined comment on another aspect of this
tenet of his theory of social justice
— that increased tuition fees
means the government can pass on
a greater proportion of the cost of
education to the individual student,
thereby reducing the need for
government operating assistance
to institutions.
The recent discovery that a
secret federal-provincial task
force on student aid has been
operating since last fall  proves
Faulkner to be a man of his word
when he says his department is
studying the "more broadly based
concerns in the area of student
Co-chairman of the body is none
other than R. J. Lachappelie, the
director-general of Faulkner's
education support branch.
The terms of reference for the
task force, as agreed to by the
federal government and the
council of education ministers of
the provinces, are expansive:
"To give immediate consideration to those changes
necessary in existing federal plans
for student assistance in order to
bring them into line with existing
needs and educational patterns."
They will also examine and
recommend "possibilities of
coordinating and/or rationalizing"
the CSLP with manpower training
allowances, the occupational
training program and other related
income maintenance manpower
training schemes.
The minutes of the November
meeting of this group show that one
of the first items was the
presentation of Faulkner's speech.
"There was some indication that
the federal thinking regarding
support for post-secondary
education, including student aid,
might take a new direction, as
mentioned in the Secretary of
State's address."
The membership of this federal-
provincial task force consists
exclusively of student aid
bureaucrats. They are to continue
to meet in closed session, releasing
no information, until August 1975.
At that time they will deliver a
report in closed session to the
council of education ministers. It is
safe to presume that the report will
likely be the outline of a coordinated federal-provincial master
plan for student aid policy
It is also safe to presume the
final results of the long months of
discussions will be a recommendation to move toward the
eventual elimination of student
grants except for those who can
qualify for welfare; increasing
tuition fees to reduce operating
deficits and the need for government funding; and increasing the
amount of money a student will be
able to borrow to pay for a college
or university education.
We know that massive changes
in thinking on the funding of post-
secondary education are taking
place. But because of the
secretiveness that surrounds all
the federal decision-making bodies
involved in student aid, we are left
to draw out conclusions from innuendo, hints, leaked documents,
and analysis of patterns of past
But most student groups conclude that things are going to get
worse for the individual student in
the immediate future. The
frustration lies in the fact that even
an organized opposition will have a
difficult time pressing for a
reformed student aid program
when no government body will
admit its powers and real involvement in the program.
Since there are no legitimate
channels open to interested groups
to add their input into decision
making, political action has to be
broadened to include a greater
public support group. This should
especially involve parents, high
school students and anyone who
will be affected by the changes in
the future.

OWNER '68 BUICK would like resp on
sible people to drive it to Maritime:
to arrive  May  15.  Phone 874-8877. Olympics for 'Bird wrestlers?
George Richey and Kyle
Raymond both look at the
Canadian Open Wrestling
championships as another step on
the way to the 1976 Olympics.
Richey at 190 pounds and
heavyweight Raymond are • both
members of the Thunderbird
wrestling team and are Canadian
intercollegiate champions in their
weight classes.
While Richey was at Claremont
high school in Victoria, he won the
B.C. high school championship.
Since coming to the 'Birds he has
continued to rack up titles, twice
winning the Simon Fraser
University Invitational tournament, twice being B.C. Senior
champion, and twice taking the
Canada West championship before
taking this year's national title.
Last year he was third in the
RICHEY at World Championships in Istanbul.
Canadian intercollegiate tournament, and runner-up for the
national Greco-Roman title.
Last fall he broke into international wrestling when he
travelled to Europe with the
national team. He took a seventh in
the Romanian International
tournament, then a sixth at the
World Championships in Turkey.
He was the second-highest
finishing Canadian in Istanbul,
firmly establishing himself as a
world class athlete.
. Over Christmas he gained more
international experience when he
journeyed to Cuba with the
national team. There he took two
out of three matches, to finish with
the same record as the team.
Richey also has a brown belt in
judo and is the Canada West
champion in that sport also. His
goal is to score a grand slam in the
national championships, collegiate
wrestling and judo, and national
open tournament in free style
wrestling, Greco-Roman wrestling
and judo.
Raymond, though born in
Toronto, began his wrestling in the
California high school system
where he eventually placed fourth
in the state tournament. In junior
college he placed sixth in the same
Since returning to Canada
Raymond has devoted more time
to his wrestling and is beginning to
reap the benefits. He has two B.C.
Senior titles, two Canada West
titles and the Canadian Open
Greco-Roman title in addition to
the national collegiate title he won
earlier this month.
He is a member of Canada's "B"
team and toured the U.S. with the
team last summer. Although he
has defeated some of the top
wrestlers in Canada he has been
left off the "A" squad because of
his lack of world class experience.
Raymond is intent on winning a
title or two this weekend to show he
belongs in the big league.
Richey is looking forward to the
Pan American games later this
year but Raymond says he is going
UBC Thunderbirds soccer lack firepower
UBC soccer player Craig
Campbell told administration
president Walter Gage yesterday
the Thunderbirds will win the rest
of their games.
He went on to say if the team
fails to do this he will drop out of
Gage's Mathematics 100 class.
If the 'Birds keep on playing the
way they've played in the past few
months, Campbell may well have
to do without his mathematics
The UBC team did manage to
win the Canada West and Canadian
Intercollegiate Athletic Union
championships last term. But since
they returned from La Belle
province the 'Birds have lost the
First they split their holiday
schedule with one win, one tie and
one lost, which wasn't exactly the
most impressive record for a
national champion team.
After that came the long layoff
because of weather, but the rest
didn't help them.
The 'Birds started the year with
a 3-0 loss to a not-too-hot Vancouver Sporting Club, but followed
with a 3-0 win over the Olympic
Cplumbians. If soccer fans expected the UBC team to get back
on the winning trail, they were
disappointed last weekend when
the 'Birds managed not only to lose
1-0 to the North Shore Pauls but
also successfully bored all those
who turned out for the affair, in
cluding the opposition.
In the Canada West championships, Darryl Samson scored
13 of the 'Birds' 26 goals. Too bad
he is a midfield player. This may
show the ability of Samson, but it
also shows the ineffectiveness of
the UBC forwards. They have the
ability to score yet seem to be
sadly lacking in the desire to do so.
Whatever changes UBC coach
Joe Johnson decides to make, the
players should realize by now their
season did not end with the
national titles. It is high time the
'Birds put more bite into their
game instead of playing like a
bunch of zombies.

to  content  himself   by   lifting
weights and training for football.
Like Richey, Raymond is a
member of another varsity team.
The 275-pound wrestler was the
biggest man on the 'Bird football
team this season.
"I think it's important for an
athlete to have more than one
sport; it is good experience and
good for conditioning, although I
consider myself a wrestler
primarily," said Raymond.
Both wrestlers are interested in
coaching in high schools after they
graduate. Although high school
wrestling programs are expanding
in the province it seems to be
developing in those Lower
Mainland schools that are football
powers. The two feel that
wrestling, being a far cheaper
sport than football, is ideal for the
numerous smaller schools
throughout B.C.
It seems to be the rule in
Canadian amateur athletics that
Sport Canada or the national teams
aren't interested in anyone until he
has already made himself a world
class athlete.
Both Richey and Raymond had
to beat those who were number one
or two in their divisions before they
were taken in for more intensive
Richey has even received a
small grant for his tuition this
year, but it doesn't come close to
making up for the money he can't
make while he is training with the
national team.
Financial problems have almost
forced Raymond to quit in the past.
"If it weren't for the guys in the
fraternity I was staying at, I just
couldn't do it," he said.
As it is there is no way he can
take the time to train for the Pan
Am Games this summer and still
come back to school, so he is just
going to shoot for the Olympics.
Richey has first hand experience
with this. His school in Victoria had
no wrestling program, so he
trained at the YMCA under coach
Ed Ashmore. Luckily Ashmore
happens to be one of the best
coaches in the country. The
nucleus of the 'Bird team: Richey,

CUPE to file LG complaint
Striking Canadian Union of
Public Employees will file an
unfair labor practice complaint
against radio station CKLG, union
business agent Richard Hughes
said Wednesday.
The complaint, to be filed with
the Canadian Labor Relations
Board, alleges failure by CKLG to
bargain in good faith as required
by the Canadian Labor Code.
Permission to file the complaint
was received Tuesday from
federal labor minister John Munro.
"By granting permission, the
labor minister has recognized that
CKLG management did not make
every reasonable effort to enter
into a collective agreement with
us," Hughes said.
"This recognition by the labor
department of CKLG's failure to
bargain in good faith justifies the
'hot' declaration placed on the
radio station by the B.C.
Federation of Labor," Hughes
"We are now seriously considering requesting the B.C. Fed to
extend the 'hot' declaration to
include all allies of CKLG who
have continued to cross our picket
lines and support CKLG with their
advertising revenue during the
Hughes said advertisers still
buying ads on the station include:
Dick Irwin Chevrolet, Famous
Players, Kelly's, A&W, Miller
Sound, Sony and Grouse Mountain
Ski Schools.
Meanwhile, a Pacific National
Exhibition spokesman said
Wednesday the strike should not
affect the Led Zepplin concert
scheduled for March 19 and 20 in
the Pacific Coliseum.
The spokesman said the decision
to carry on with the concert came
after a meeting Wednesday between PNE officials and New York
representatives of the promoters,
Concerts West.
The decision comes despite a
statement Monday by CUPE local
1004, which includes PNE inside
and outside workers, that PNE
workers will not handle the concert
because of the "hot" declaration.
The PNE spokesman said the
"hot" declaration does not include
the concert since CKLG is not
sponsoring the event. The "hot"
declaration includes any firms
doing business with the station, but
does not include advertisers.
procedures with him.
He said he was told all the non-
Caucasians did very poorly on the
interview marks, and that many
whites with inferior academic
records did extremely well on the
interview marks. Sarai told council
he was told that in fact no non-
Caucasians had done exceptionally
well in the interviews.
Blankstein was questioned by
several council members when
AMS treasurer Dave Theessen
asked him why council had not
been consulted about hiring two
bands for an AMS dance to be held
March 21.
Blankstein said it had been
discussed by SUB management
committee, and that council had
not been notified because
Blankstein had reached a verbal
agreement with the promoters of
the dance, Biva Productions, but
had not signed a formal contract.
He said the agreement would
give the AMS "10 per cent," but did
not tell council what the 10 per cent
would be of.
When asked by Theessen who

remember the names of the four
people involved.
Ron Dumont; AMS co-ordinator
and chairman of the SUB
management committee, said he
could not remember the discussion
when the deal was made. He excused the fact that it was not
mentioned in management committee minutes because it was not
considered important enough by
the members.
Blankstein said he would have
the names of the people behind
Biva Productions today, and even
told council he could get a written
contract for today if they so

recommendation to the processing
centre committee was tending
heavily toward building a semi

end of the library.
In other business, council approved the name Lethe for the
lounge in SUB. Since its opening in
September it has been known only
as the alternative facility.
The approval came over the
objections of several council
members, who wanted to name the
lounge the Pendulum.
"There'll be hell to pay for this,"
Walls said, on a point of order.
