Meeting set
for fee hike
debate, vote
Summer school students will be asked next month to
approve a fee boost from $2 to $5 in summer session dues to
support construction of a $3.8 million student union building.

University students get
liberal summer handouts
The federal government is
piling on the summer goodies
for university students and for
UBC students in particular.
Monday the Commons, acting
with rare speed and in near
unanimity, cleared the path for
an early decision on interest-
free student loans.
"And UBC's complex medical
science center moved a giant
step closer to completion with
the announcement of a $4 million federal government grant
for the project.
Members of Parliament
agreed Monday to waive customary debate before first reading of Finance Minister Walter
Gordon's loan bill, then approved the first reading
The only objection was registered by Gilles Gregoire, Ral-
liement des Creditistes MP
from Quebec.
Gregoire said he resents what
he terms the intrusion of the
federal government into the
field of education.
Gordon's bill would guarantee interest on individual student loans up to $1,000 a year,
and a maximum of $5,000 over
his university career.
The student would not have
to pay interest while at university or for six months afterward.
Terms of the medical grant
announced by Health Minister
Judy LaMarsh require an equal
grant from the B.C. government.
The grant will go toward a
$30 million, 16-building medical center, already under construction.
Core of the center will be a

Square dances and tennis
make dull students shine
All   work   and  no  play   can   make  a   summer   school
student dull, so the summer session association has planned
these activities.
Dancing lessons every Monday and Thursday from
12:30 to 1:30 p.m., in the Memorial Gym, Upper Lobby.
Square dancing every Wednesday, 8 to 10 p.m., in the
Women's  Gym  or   the Buchanan Building   Quadrangle.
And you can have free swims in the Memorial Pool
from 2 to 5:30 p.m. any afternoon with swimming instruction on request.
Tennis courts are available all week from 2 to 5:30
D.m. and the pool room and lounges in Brock Hall are open.
The fee hike will pass or
fail at a general meeting of
summer session students on
Aug. 6.
If the motion passes, fees
will remain at the $5 level for
15 years, the period of financing for the SUB.
In addition to today's announcement in The Ubyssey
the motion to hike fees will
also be posted on bulletin
boards a week before the August general meeting and will
be carried in one or two of
the SSA bulletins before Aug.
6, according to SSA president
Bill Lucey.
Lucey refused to take sides
on the issue.
He said students should decide for themselves whether or
not they want a part in the
building of SUB.
"We are presenting a proposition to take part in the building of the SUB on a equal ratio with the winter students,"
he said.*
Lucey urged all summer
students to come to the Aug.
6 meeting and present their

A nice shiny new one that
is designed to carry out the
duties of a patrol wagon-
It has a stretcher, red light

It also proudly displays
the UBC crest on its doors,

are the only things that are

"We have plenty of room

Ho hum, they say
UBC has 6,400 eager summer session academics
who study all the time — except when their summer
session association organizes a dance or some other bit
of fun. Then droves of academics stop studying and turn
up in gay, unacademic summer prints and ivy league
But of course when the summer session association
holds a general meeting to tell students how such event-
are organized everyone is far too busy with his courses.
Like last Thursday when the summer session held its
first general meeting of the summer. The executive was
there — or most of it — but only eight students thought
it was worth attending. And two of those left half-way
But then the executive wasn't expecting a tremendous turnout for the meeting. They only booked the
auditorium — capacity 600 — assuming it just might
hold 10 per cent of the summer session students. And
after all they don't require a great number for a quorum
— 20 students out of 6,400 isn't really too much to ask.
But if the exceutive hadn't been there Thursday there
wouldn't have been a quorum.
Ho-hum you say. Summer session never deals with
anything worth shouting about.
Ho-hum we say. On August 6 summer session students will be asked to more than double the present fee
paid for extra-curricular activities.
A general meeting will be held and if summer
session students hold true to form a few disinterested
students will mumble their approval and presto — summer session students will be paying their association
$5 instead of $2.
Summer session association president Bill Lucey
says he doesn't care whether the fees are boosted. AMS
president Roger McAfee wants a fee hike — and how.
Lucey would like to see a few students become interested. He would also like to see a few more than the
required 20 at his general meeting in August.
And so would we. We'd also like to see you accept
the proposed hike. It means an average of an additional
$18,000 per year going toward the construction costs
of the SUB. Over 15 years the figures become more
impressive — nearly $300,000 more will be made available to help finance the project.
Of course if summer session students prefer to
keep their money someone should start doing something
about it. After all that $3 increase per student takes care
of a case of beer pretty nicely, or pays the cost of one
baldly over-priced textbook, or even buys 30 cups of what
the university laughingly calls coffee.
We suggest that mor_ than 20 students attend the
August genera* meeting; It i_n't like going to a dentist.

"This is so the men will

He said the old shambulance (a 1957 Chevrolet station wagon) did not have
enough room for a stretcher
in the back, and so was useless as an emergency vehicle.
The new one arrived on

be similar to those using the
building in the winter.
y "I can see  no reason   why
summer school students should
not take part," he said.
Winter students -voted to
build the student union building in a referendum' last fall.
This spring they voted to increase building fund contributions from $10 to $15 per student, bringing student council
fees for winter students to $29.
Lucey said today's Ubyssey
serves as constitutional notice
of the motion to raise the fees.
He said quorum necessary
Aug. 6 for the 6,400-member
association is 20.
There are 17 members on
his executive.

For dental colleges
Married housing
being torn down
Going, going, gone are the Wesbrook married quarters.
They've gone to make way
for the new dental college.
Workmen are busy demolishing the last of the old army
huts opposite Frat Row.
All the married students
who were living in the Wesbrook quarters were moved
out last month, housing head
John Haar said.
Some have moved into privately - owned apartments because they don't want to stay
in UBC-operated housing facilities, he said.
The remainder of the married students have moved into
the other UBC-operated housing facilities.
The married students were
given top priority to squeeze
them into the already overcrowded campus facilities, Mr.
Haar said.
"Something had to go to
make way for the new dental
college, and they were the
lowest on the totem pole," he
Student council has taken a
hand in the situation, too.
"We've been investigating
all the new housing developments," said Roger McAfee,
Alma Mater Society president,
"Council will be asked to approve a request to the university for land; either the AMS
or the university is going to
construct 100 married units,"
he said.
A student committee to look
into married student quarters
was formed earlier this summer.
It is headed by Jim Slater,
grad studies president, and includes a representation of student wives who approached
the AMS about the need for
married students' quarters.

is not replacing it."
He said the AMS building
plan would be self-liquidating.
However, he said, he didn't
know how long liquidation
would take.

cost of about $7,000 a unit.
The units will have one, two

relating the answers to the six-
page questionnaire distributed
to 1,400 students in March.

was set up after a fee hike of
$50 for winter students was
announced in January. Summer
