Array Ed dep't and admin
skip big NSD date
By TED DAVIS
and PAUL VANDERHAM
Neither the department of
education nor the UBC administration will be represented at
today's National Student Day
forum.
But education minister Pat
McGeer has promised to meet with
university student councils and the
B.C. student Federation executive
sometime in December.
Both McGeer and deputy
minister Walter Hardwick are in
Toronto on unspecified business
and no other education department
people are available.
Moe Sihota, Alma Mater Society
external affairs officer, said
Monday he first mentioned the
forum to McGeer in May, but
McGeer said it was too early then
to make any plans to speak at the
forum.
Sihota spoke to McGeer again in
September and again received no
definite commitment. But in early
October, McGeer's executive
assistant Jim Bennett said the
minister would speak at the forum.
This promise was reneged on
Oct. 28, when Bennett told Sihota
McGeer would not be available
because of his Toronto trip.
Bennett did not say when this
commitment had been made, but
indicated that it had higher
priority than his NSD commitment.
Bennett said there would be
no one from the education
department speaking at UBC.
Spokesmen for the UBC administration said Monday administration president Doug
Kenny would not make it, and that
no one else would be sent in his
place.
Sihota said that last week
Kenny's secretary Jane Stigings
told him that Kenny would
probably be available because he
had no other appointments for Nov.
9.
He also said she phoned him
Friday and said Kenny would not
speak at the forum but did not give
any reason for this.
But Stigings said Monday: "I did
not say anything to Moe at all."
She then said: "Whatever I said to
Moe had to be checked through the
president. Whatever Moe said is
not relevant."
She said Kenny often makes his
own appointments and he may
have made some that she was not
aware of at the time.
A press release issued Monday
by the education department said
the department will hold a one-day ■
workshop sometime in the second
week of December for student
representatives to discuss their
concerns.
In the statement, McGeer said:
"I am aware that a number of
student issues will be discussed
and as most of them are of concern
to students they should have the
benefit of a government reply."
The press release said:
"Students have been promised a
full day of two-way communication
between themselves and the
education minister."
Issues to be discussed are
student employment, the Canada
Student Loan program, the
provincial government grant and
scholarship program, and the
government's long-term policy
regarding the delivery of post-
secondary education.
Regarding the proposed Salute to
National Student Day workshop,
AMS external affairs officer Moe
Sihota said: Tt is good public
relations for the department, but I
am sceptical about what can be
achieved at such a meeting.
"We have had meetings in the
past with McGeer and they haven't
been fruitful at all."
Sihota said he will probably
attend the meeting but in return
may ask that McGeer come to UBC
sometime in January to talk to
students here and to debate with
Kenny on the role of post-
secondary education.
He said the issues he will want to
discuss will include tuition fees,
academic standards at UBC, and
proposed changed in the Universities Act and the new post-
secondary education act which he
said McGeer is not telling anyone
about.
He will also want to discuss the
funding of the new UBC hospital,
the Winegard report on post-
secondary education in non-urban
centres in B.C., and a proposed
liberal arts college in downtown
Vancouver which may be administered by UBC.

'Birds win league fifle, on to semis
By TOM BARNES
The fine running of Gord Penn
and a solid defensive performance
proved to be the difference as the
UBC Thunderbirds football team
downed the University of
Saskatchewan Huskies 36-10 to
capture the Hardy Cup Western
Canadian league title for the first
time in 14 years Saturday at
Thunderbird Stadium.
Penn hauled the ball 14 times for
163 yards and three touchdowns.
The yardage pushed his season
total to 1,050 yards. Penn is the
only player in the history of UBC
football to top the 1,000 mark in a
season, and he has done it two
years in a row now.
Penn's running mate Glenn
Wallace, picked up 86 yards on 14
carries to push his season total to
940 yards. It seems likely he will
join Penn on the 1,000-yard plateau
when UBC meets the University of
Western Ontario Mustangs in the
Central Bowl in London, Ont.
Saturday.
UBC came away from the
opening quarter nursing a 1-0
lead gained from a wide Gary Metz
field goal attempt. The Huskies
had moved the ball well but were
stymied by the 'Bird defense on
several key plays.

Vote looms, student groups tense
By JANET NICOL
It's only one week before the
Alma Mater Society fee referendum is put before students — and
participants in student services
await the results in tense anticipation.
They're tense, because if
students do not approve an increase in AMS fees to $14 from $9,
the following financial disasters
will occur:
• The Ubyssey newspaper will
be cut back, possibly to one issue a
week and will lose its membership
with the Canadian University
Press:
• CITR radio will be unable to
upgrade its broadcasts on a
recently acquired FM cable;
• intramurals will be forced to
cut back sports activities after
years of building up programs;
• and the AMS could go
bankrupt within the next five
years.
But if students approve a fee
increase which would give $2 to
The Ubyssey, $1 to CITR, $1 to
intramurals and a $1 general increase to the AMS, services will
flourish and its participants will
breathe easy.
The greatest financial gains will
fall to the AMS if the referendum
passes. That's because the other
groups would become funded by
non-discretionary money and the
AMS would retain the $63,465 those
groups currently receive from the
general discretionary budget.
As well, the $1 AMS general levy
increase would hike the over-all
increase to $84,465.
AMS president Dave Theessen
says the money will go toward new
programs, such as the anti-
calendar put out by the teaching
and academic standards committee   and   a   full-time   special
programs co-ordinator to replace
the special events committee.
Theessen also said the additional
money will offset rising costs,
which he figures will go up nine per
cent during the next five years.
The women's centre, supported
by the AMS at last Wednesday's
student representative assembly
meeting, will receive a portion of
the $1 AMS increase.
The Ubyssey newspaper will
increase its budget by $7,935, if the
referendum passes. Co-editor
Ralph Maurer says the extra
money will go into savings for

On $1 fee levy
SUS plans referendum
The science undergraduate
society will go broke in a year
unless science students approve a
$1 fee levy Wednesday, SUS
president Bob Salkeld said Monday.
SUS is holding the fee referendum in conjunction with a senate
rep byelection. Science students
currently pay nothing to the SUS
and the organization's move to
raise its own fees is the first by an
undergraduate society.
Salkeld said the fee levy is
necessary because the SUS may
stop getting money from the Alma
Mater Society discretionary
budget next year. The new AMS
constitution allows undergrad
societies to raise their own fees, he
said.
Advance polls for the referendum will be open Tuesday from
4:30 to 6:30 p.m. in Place Vanier,
Totem Park and Walter Gage
residences. Regular polls will be
open in Sedgewick library and
Hebb lecture theatre from 8:30
a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Wednesday.
The SUS held a similar
referendum last year but only 54
students voted, not enough to make
the referendum valid.
According to the new AMS
constitution, referenda no longer
need a turnout of 15 per cent to be
valid, but any referendum which
does pass with less than 15 per cent
of students voting is valid for only
one year.
Salkeld said a large turnout is
needed because the board of
governors, which ratifies all fee
increases, takes into account the
number of students who voted.
Salkeld said the SUS currently
has about $1,500, but current and
projected expenses would leave it
with only about $800. This would
only last for one more year.
The SUS would then go broke, he
said, unless the levy is approved.

With money from the fee levy,
the SUS could sponsor and help

Free tuitien—Quebec pelitices
By HAVIECHENBERG
Canadian University Press
MONTREAL — Free tuition at
the CEGEP and university levels is"
a policy of three of Quebec's
political parties seeking power
Monday.
The Parti Quebecois and the
Party-Rassemblement Militant
Syndicaux have made free post-
secondary education for students
inside Quebec part of their platforms, although none has made it
an election issue.
In interviews with Canadian
University Press, Claude Charron,
Parti Quebecois critic in the last
legislature; Barry Fridhandler,
candidate for the Union Nationale
Party;  and Jean-Pierre Bour-
douxhe, NDP candidate in this and
the last federal election; all spoke
of making education free to increase accessibility.
Each candidate put strong
emphasis on CEGEP or junior
college education, advocating a
strengthening of technical
programs. Although unfamiliar
with a recent report on CEGEPS,
all three of the parties' representatives recommended enactment of
the document's main proposals,
including a provision of funding to
CEGEPs on a program basis,
rather than a course basis.
On a number of other issues,
differences among the three
candidates emerge — for example
on the question of differential fees
for foreign students.
The Parti Quebecois — which
would only operate as a provincial
government for two years pending
a popular referendum on the
question of independence — would
define foreign students in a
separate Quebec as all students
from outside the province.
Those students would have to
pay fees to attend post-secondary
institutions in Quebec, although
Charron did not indicate what
amount a PQ administration would
require.
Bourdouxhe, speaking for the
Union Nationale, defined foreign
students as all students from
outside Canada; he argued that
such "etrangers" should bear the
financial burden for a post-
secondary education attained in
Quebec.
He mentioned, however, that
some monies should be set aside by
the provincial government to
subsidize the education of those
foreign students who cannot afford
to pay their own way.
'We have a responsibility to help
educate the world, to share our
knowledge and our facilities," said
Fridhandler.
However, he added that taxpayers should not be expected to
fund a "carte blanche" for foreign
students.
For students from other parts of
Canada,   Fridhandler   suggested

Ubyssey 'bargain' at $2 per year
ByKATHYFORD
If students vote in an upcoming
referendum to give The Ubyssey $2
per student, they will still be
getting a bargain, Ubyssey co-
editor Sue Vohanka said Monday.
At a Ubyssey-sponsored forum,
she said The Ubyssey currently
receives about $1.20 per student
per year from the Alma Mater
Society.
Students will be asked in a
referendum Nov. 16 to 18 to approve fee increases to the Alma
Mater Society, radio station CITR,
The Ubyssey and intramural
sports.
"Since there are approximately
60 issues of The Ubyssey during the
year, each student ends up paying
about three cents a paper,"
Vohanka said.
"If the referendum is passed,
you'll be paying $2 a year for three
papers a week. Compare this to
students at Simon Fraser who pay
$5.50 for two semesters for two
issues a week of The Peak.
"Two dollars may sound like a
lot, but we have an annual
operating budget of $130,000. We
get most of it from ads, but during
the last four or five years we have
been receiving about $34,000 from
the AMS. Unless the referendum is
passed, we'll have to substantially
increase our ad content."
Vohanka said The Ubyssey is
also asking for a fee increase
because typesetting and printing,
currently done at College Printers,
is becoming increasingly expensive. If the referendum succeeds, some money will be set
aside each year to buy typesetting
equipment.
She said if people have any
questions about the increase, they
should come to the free Ubyssey
"beverage" bash Nov. 16. Copious
amounts of an amber liquid will be
dispensed, free to everyone who
shows up at The Ubyssey office,
SUB 241K, at noon Nov. 16.
Richard Saxton, president of
campus radio station CITR, said
some of the money the station will
get if the referendum is passed will
be used to finance the station's FM
cable outlet.
"We want to reach as many
students as possible, and have a
wide range of programming so that
as many people as possible are
satisfied with program content. We
want to set up an FM cable system,
hopefully by next term.
"And we feel that if we can reach
more people we can perhaps improve school spirit and give people
a greater sense of unity.
"We also would like to provide a
greater source of campus information. I feel $1 is a small price
to pay for the degree of accessibility we will provide if we get
our cable system set up.
"Eighty-five per cent of Vancouver homes have cablevision, so
we have a high potential audience
range."
Brent Tynan, AMS director of
services, said if the referendum
fails many services will be hurt. He
said that of the $34 AMS fee each
student now pays, only $9 goes to
services. This amount was approved by students in 1949.
"If the referendum doesn't
succeed, we may start to lose
money," Tynan said.
"The AMS is okay for reserves;
in fact it's quite a wealthy
organization in that respect. But
most of its assets are tied up. For
example, we own an art collection
worth about a quarter of a million
dollars, but you don't start selling
off A. Y. Jacksons to pay the light
bill. That's not being fiscally
responsible."
Louise Zerb, vice-president of
women's athletics, and member of
the Thunderettes basketball team
said women's athletic teams are
often hard pressed to find enough
money to compete.
"Since 1961, when there were few
women students, and few women's
sports, we have been getting only
80 cents of the $5 athletic fee. And
we have to run 18 sports with a
total of 29 teams on this amount."
The women's athletic fee will be
on a separate referendum. It is one
of four which students will be
voting on Nov. 16, 17 and 18. The
other three are:
• a ballot asking students if they
want to join the B.C. Students'
Federation, which will cost them $1
per year;
• a ballot asking whether
students want to become members
of the National Union of Students,
in return for another dollar;
• and a fourth ballot for an AMS
fee increase of $5 — $2 to The
Ubyssey, $1 to CITR, $1 to the
general AMS fund and $1 to intramurals.
NSD gets token AMS support
By SHELLEY ROBERTS
What do you know for 10 free Pit tokens?
If you answer immediately "Nov. 9 is National
Student Day," you're a winner. But your winnings
are useless until the Pit reopens.
A roving band of Alma Mater Society and CITR
reps are cruising the campus today in a last minute
effort to publicize National Student Day. About 75
students were accosted with the once-in-a-lifetime
opportunity Monday, but only three answered
correctly and received the token reward, Moe Sihota,
AMS external affairs officer, said Monday.
The token campaign is part of AMS strategy to
promote the national day of concern about student
issues.
The main aim of the day is to protest potential
tuition fee increases.
"The most effective thing we have done is the
classroom talks to ask students to support the tuition
letter," he said.
The AMS is asking students to sign a letter to
education  minister  Pat McGeer opposing fee in
creases. More than 4,000 students have signed the
letter, Sihota said.
Other activities include a poster blitz and a series of
forums. The forums were about student problems
such as unemployment, student loans and proposed
tuition fee increases. The forums showed students are
concerned with issues that affect them, Sihota said.
"What impressed me was the questions asked.
"This demonstrates that the awareness is high and
that the campaign has done its job," Sihota added.
The AMS has also set up an information booth in
SUB. Pamphlets and studies concerning the day are
available to the students.
The rally outside SUB planned for today is just one
part of NSD, Sihota said.
"The goals we set out to achieve have been
achieved. The students have been educated and informed," he said.
The rally is important to make the public and
government aware of the issues."
To effectively demonstrate National Student Day
issues to the public the rally must have a large turnout, he said.
that agreements could be reached
with other provinces, setting equal
quotas in bilateral contracts.
None of the spokesmen interviewed knew what the Fiscal
Arrangements Act is (the cost-
sharing agreement between the
federal and provincial governments which currently has the
federal government providing
matching funds to provinces for
post-secondary education expenditures), and none knew that it
will expire in March, 1977.
Moreover, none were aware of
the discussion of this expiration at
last July's first ministers' conference nor were they cognizant of
the federal proposal put forth at
that time. If this proposal were
accepted, it would transfer
taxation powers to the province so
that there would be no direct
funding by the federal government
for purposes of post-secondary
education.
Charron said that in an independent Quebec, there would be
no funding from the federal
government on any program, as all
taxation revenues would go to the
Quebec government.
Fridhandler said the Union
Nationale would probably accept
the federal proposal, as long as
'taxpayers would not end up paying
more taxes for the same product.
According to Bourdouxhe, "the
NDP does not have a policy on the
Fiscal Arrangements Act."
Hydro says
no passes
for students
By CHARLIE MICALLEF
Student bus passes are an impossibility this year and university
students must pay increased fares,
B.C. Hydro spokesman Harry
Atterton said Monday.
Despite a.move last fall by the
Alma Mater Society and the B.C.
Students' Federation to push for
student passes in the Vancouver
area, B.C. Hydro is "still studying
the idea."
Higher bus fares came into effect
Monday and UBC bus users, except
within the confines of the
University Endowment Lands,
must pay 35 cents instead of 25
cents. The cost of a ride to the UEL
limits remains at 15 cents.
Atterton said B.C. Hydro is
studying the idea of student passes
based on data from the University
of Victoria.
A pass system would allow
students to purchase passes for
about $30 a term and use them
seven days a week.
UVic passes are subsidized at
$7.50 per student by the university
administration.
And Atterton said the commission's "position concerning the
proposed Twenty-fifth Avenue bus
is unchanged."
He said B.C. Hydro agrees that
newer and more extensive routes
are desirable but the idea for expansion "is not high on the priority
list."
"There has been stiff opposition
by residents on the streets that
would be affected by new and
expanded routes to that idea."
While a petition for "an additional east-west crosstown route
on Twenty-fifth has been approved
in principle by city council," Atterton said implementation is not
likely in the near future.
"We would prefer to beef up our
existing systems before we do any
more expanding," he said.
New fares in effect are: adults,
35 cents; university students, 35
cents except within the UEL; high
school students, 15 cents with card;
senior citizens, 15 cents with card;
children (5 to 11 years old), 10
cents and children under five
years, free. Page 4
THE
UBYSSEY
Tuesday, November 9, 1976
Q & A time:
What is NSD?
Good morning. It's National Student Day.
What's National Student Day?
NSD is a day of concern about student issuer It was
first conceived in May by the National Union of Students and
organized by affiliated student organizations and individual
student councils at most Canadian campuses.
Huh? What? Whoa, there. A number of questions. First
of all, what does "day of concern about student issues"
mean? Is there going to be a mass strike? And what are the
issues?
Strike? Don't be silly. If NUS called a strike, nobody
would respond, thus exposing the fact that NUS isn't really
an organization at all — it's a head without a body.
The purpose of this "day of concern," in fact, is to
explain to Canadian students just what issues the NUS is
particularly worried about — education cutbacks, tuition fee
hikes and the related question of accessibility of
post-secondary education, the quality of teaching and course
content and other issues.
Basically, NUS is trying to educate students— trying to
tell students that some things are more important than
getting that lab finished for Friday.
They're "educating" us, eh? What do they take us for?
A bunch of uninformed ignoramuses?
Ignorami. That's right, they do. And they're basically
right. The economy of Canada — and the entire western
world — has taken a distinct downturn during recent years,
and people have begun to very selfishly look out for their
own asses. NUS, like many organizations, has discovered that
the social concern of the late 1960s was a luxury, a plaything
for the rich and idle. When the going gets tough . . .
/ don't get it. First, you.shit on NUS. Then you defend
them. What a wishy-washy liberal. Make up my mind, will
you?
One complaint The Ubyssey has long had about NUS
and its affiliates and predecessors is that they're wasting a lot
of energy. NUS has decided to be a lobbying group,
going to governments on their knees and saying "please,
please do this-or-that; it affects 400,000 students and you
wouldn't want to hurt them."
Governments have generally ignored the NUS lobbyists.
Why not? What would happen if the government told NUS to
bugger off? Bugger all.
Ah. But what if NUS went to the government and said
"Look, if you don't do such-and-such, 400,000 students are
going to march tomorrow." Wouldn't things be different?
In other words, what NUS never did in the past was
get students to support them on issues.
That's what NSD is all about. NUS has finally come
around to the point of view that they aren't some sort of
vanguard, some intelligent elite. They're only effective if they
get student support, and the way to do that is to bring issues
to students and make students aware about them. Once you
know something about an issue, you form an opinion. NUS
then takes that opinion to governments, we hope.
NUS and our local NSD organizers deserve a lot of
credit for the work they've done (next time, though, they

officials worm out of their NSD speaking commitments). But
the work is really just beginning, because NSD won't mean a
thing if students don^t continue thinking and talking about
the issues raised today.

Just a thought for those students
who, like myself, come from
outside the Vancouver area, and
are in the position of having to pay
both tuition and residence fees in
order to attend university.
It appears that we will be faced
with an increase in tuition fees next
year which will make the amount
of money we have to earn, borrow
or beg in order to come to this
hallowed institution rather large —
large enough to keep a few of us
from returning, no doubt, and
certainly large enough to render
many of us a lot poorer than we are
now, if that's possible.
One way of trying to ward off the
threat of penury would be to write
to Pat McGeer, but please bear in
mind as you consider this how
responsive the good doctor was to
students' letters when he- was
reviewing auto insurance  rates.
Having been through a situation
like this once before, we students
are justified in being a little
sceptical about the effects of letters to McGeer, however
reasonably or in whatever
profusion these letters are written.
The alternative is to write to
member of the legislative
assembly from your home riding
and try to impress upon him/her
the fact that students from his/her
riding will be under a tremendous
financial burden if there are large
fee increases. Most MLAs are very
receptive to input from their
constituents, and the idea that
students from their area would be
at a disadvantage would disturb
many of them.
By all means, sign those form
letters, but don't forget that there
are people with a little less influence (and even backbenchers do
have some, as members of committees for example) whose minds
are probably a lot more open. Even
a strong opposition statement
against fee increases would be a
help — and with threats of $800 to
$1,000 tuition next year, we could
use a little help.

Finally, a committee has been
set up to study the facilities for
handicapped students on campus.
The basic idea of this study is good,
but why was no member from the
rehabilitation medicine faculty
included on the committee? We
have a working knowledge and
interest in:
1) physical problems of the
handicapped;
2) assessment of architectural
barriers, and
3) access to literature and
resource consultants.
We also have just concluded our
own survey of the accessibility of
many    campus    buildings   for
wheelchair users. Considering the
above, we hope that a representative from rehabilitation medicine
will be included on the committee.

NSD organizers thanked
Today is National Student Day.
The day is not only significant
because it questions the state of
education in this country, but also
because it demonstrates that
students across Canada are concerned enough to donate some of
their time toward the day itself and
the issues surrounding it.
At UBC, a tremendous amount of
time and effort has gone into
preparing for the events of the day.
Moreover, many individuals have
Poppies
The president, executive and
members of the West Point Grey
Branch No. 142 of the Royal
Canadian Legion wish to express
their appreciation and thanks to
the faculty and students for their
wonderful response to the Vancouver Poppy Fund Appeal which
amounted to $1,750.
This money is used for the express purpose of providing visible
evidence of remembrance, to
provide funds for needy veterans
and dependents and to give employment to disabled veterans.
In conclusion, we sincerely hope
that Poppy Day shall and will
continue until the last war sufferer
has passed from this earth — until
the hearts of men and women have
responded to the nobler call of
world brotherhood and sisterhood,
and war shall have been banished
forever from the face of the earth.

sacrificed classes, labs and even
mid-terms to insure the success of
the events leading up to NSD. It is,
to say the least, rather unique to
discover such commitment at a
campus that has often been
described as the most apathetic
one in Canada.
Therefore, I would appreciate
the opportunity to publically thank
the following unique people for
their contribution toward NSD:
Arnold Hedstrom, Elaine Bernard,
Paul Sekhon, Lorelee Parker,
Joanne Clifton, Kathy Moody,
Gary Waters, Lake Sagaris, Henry
Quan, Pam Willis, Peter Quiring,
Booth Palmer, Margaret
Urquhart, Heather Gesyk and John
Russell have all worked hard on
the NSD committee and their efforts should be appreciated by all
of us on this campus.
I would especially like to express
my gratitude to the chairperson of
the NSD committee — Paul Sandhu
— for his exceptional efforts
toward the day. I am sure that all
of those on the committee will join
me in expressing appreciation of
Paul's work.
The committee as an entity
ceases to exist after today. I know
that the thing I will always
remember about NSD will not be
whether or not it was successful,
that is irrelevant, but the fact that
these people donated a considerable portion of their time to
NSD because they gave a damn
about education in this nation and
about students on this campus. It is
for this that I thank them.

This letter appeared earlier this
year in the Peak, the Simon Fraser
University student newspaper.
This is my first semester at SFU.
After reading The Ubyssey (UBC
student paper), it's a pleasure to
read the Peak. The latter seems to
be   free   of   the   politicizing,
adolescent rebelliousness and
weak humor which characterize
The Ubyssey. The Peak actually
presents relevant news in a clear,
straightforward manner, and the
editorial and review columns do
not seem to be dominated by a
predictable point of view.

Olsen letter defends greedy society Learning not wasted
I'm very sorry I missed
George Hermanson's lecture on
university education. The letter by
Greg Olsen (Nov. 2) pinpoints the
dilemma we're in at the university.
Olsen labels the exploration of a
body of knowledge for its own sake
as unrealistic, immature, invalid
and old fashioned. He accurately
characterizes today's university as
"a training school."
UBC is dominated by the
professional schools for whose
ranks our undergraduates are
being trained. The few sacred slots
in law, medicine, etc., are open to
those who, by wit, deceit and
hustle, can sufficiently impress or
come up with the magic grades to
be accepted.
In so doing, we perpetuate and
feed the competitive free enterprise system that characterizes
North American society. The
magic_of grades also reinforces the
notion that there are "better"
people than others, betterness
being defined by a grade point
average.
I'm afraid that the Olsens are
correct about what UBC is. The
How to vote
It has recently been brought to the
attention of the women's athletic
directorate that there are a lot of
people on this campus who don't
know how to vote. With the upcoming referendum on Nov. 16, 17
and 18, we felt that this should be
cleared up.
There will be 11 polling stations
in various buildings around the
campus. You may vote at any one
of these stations. Simply present
your Alma Mater Society card
(your student number will be
recorded), and you will be handed
your ballots. Each ballot is answered by a YES or NO. Lastly
deposit your ballots in the ballot
box.
Polls will be open from 10 a.m. to
4 p.m. on Nov. 17 and 18. In addition, there will be advance polls
in Gage, Place Vanier and Totem
Park on Nov. 16 from 4 to 7 p.m.
As a student of UBC you are
entitled to have a say in what
happens on this campus. I encourage you to use that right and
get out and vote. Remember that a
policy you don't like now, might not
have existed if everyone had cast a
ballot.
Anne Gairns
women's athletic directorate
tragedy, for me, is that the Olsens
who see no "relevance" of
literature, philosophy or art, will
fill the very professions that sorely
need this knowledge for the
humane practice of their
discipline.
There is another problem. A few
of us still cling to the "old
fashioned" notion of a university
for the scholastically gifted. In
today's world, this is branded
"elitism," a term that has come to
be highly pejorative.
As our classes swell with
students who don't know why
they're here or whose sole concern
is to get a job, there is little opportunity for the exploration of
ideas at the very edge of human
thought and the sharpening of our
minds through personal interplay
with others who are equally
equipped and committed to exploring this world of ideas.
It is a dismal indictment of a
university when a first year
student will not only accept the
notion that "society is greedy as
well as competitive" but defend it
as one which the university should
reinforce.
David Suzuki
zoology professor
After reading Greg Olsen's letter
which appeared in the Nov. 2
Ubyssey, I would like to ask him
one question: "Who are you kidding?"
Sorry Greg, but your English
professor is right; people do still
come to university for "knowledge
for the sake of knowledge."
There is such a thing as "self-
satisfaction," which you may not
be concerned about, but thousands
of students at this university are. I
presently work part  time  as a
waiter, and I may still have the
Women: equality through isolation?
The women's committee looks
like a good idea, at least at first. I
think the resource centre classes
and services are legitimate
requests but some of the other
goals Fran Watters and Lorelee
Parker mentioned do not sound so
appealing.
I imagine a lot of hard work by
concerned women was necessary
to create the committee. But I
think they have lost sight of their
original goals.
The women's organizations that
are already on the campus are
"divorced" from each other. Their
interests and concerns differ from
each other to the extent where
close cooperation between them
would not be completely to their
advantage.
Consequently it seems unlikely
that an organized "voting block" of
a potential "50% of the campus"
could represent UBC's women
fairly. This is bringing power
politics to the student representative assembly. It doesn't make
sense to oppose chauvinism by
practising it.
i
Some other goals of this "lobbying group" include "events that
pertain to women as women." Why
not have events that feature
women who pertain to people as
people? If the goal of women's
groups is to establish themselves
as equals do they have to isolate
themselves to do It?
It begins to sound just a bit
ominous when Ubyssey editorials
state ". . .it had better put its
money behind its motions — and
come through with money for the
women's committee." Conceivably
the ski club could take over the
SRA if it got enough members and
coerced them into voting in a
block. Well they haven't yet, so I

If you have the notion that you
are going to apply every idea that
you are taught at university you
had better think again. Concepts of
knowledge that are acquired will
come into your every day, casual
conversation; it makes for a better
and more interesting person. This
knowledge is not, as you say,
"wasted."
I agree fully with you that people
come to university, and hope to be
rewarded with a good income. But
a person such as yourself, who may
be training for a specific career,
has a few surprises coming if he
thinks that he will have a
guaranteed job once he has
completed his education.
Good luck, because you might
find yourself in an unemployment

On 1975 AUCE contract
AIB delays decision
The Anti-Inflation Board has
appointed a case worker to review
the 19 per cent wage increase
gained last year by UBC's 1,300
library and clerical workers.
"We won't know anything until
the end of the first week of
December," Fairleigh Funston,
union organizer, said Monday.
The Association of University
and College Employees, local 1,
wants exemption from AIB
guidelines on grounds of sex
discrimination. AUCE is seeking
parity with the base rate paid
technicians in the Canadian Union
of Public Employees on campus.
The technicians are mostly men,
while at least 90 per cent of AUCE
workers on campus are female.
AUCE mailed a formal request
to  the   provincial   government
Friday asking for a mediator in its
dispute with the university administration about a new contract.
The UBC administration has offered the union a wage increase of
six per cent, with no increase in
other monetary benefits.
In a newsletter, the union claims
that if the administration's six per
cent offer were implemented, the
monthly salary difference between
CUPE and AUCE grade 1 assistant
technicians would increase to $216
next year from a current difference of $191. AUCE says this
would increase a sex-based
discrepancy.
Funston said Friday that since
the union notified the administration it was asking for a
mediator in the current dispute,
the administration has refused to
negotiate any further, even about
minor issues in the proposed
contract.
The contract expired Oct. 1.

NSD may break apathy trend
By PAUL VANDERHAM
National Student Day, if it is any
kind of success, will be the first
united student action of its kind in
years.
Since the early 1970s, Canada's
student population has remained
dormant and apathy has reigned
supreme. Student organizations
have been weak and are only now
regaining some strength.
Reflecting the national mood,
UBC has seen little student activism in recent years.
But UBC has not always been
such a complacent campus. The
university has seen sporadic bursts
of committed activism by its
students over the years.
Students first took to the streets
in protest in 1922.
The facilities at the infant Point
Grey Campus were inadequate and
classes were being held in private
homes, tents and church
basements. Construction on
campus was at a standstill because
of a lack of funds.
So students circulated a petition
demanding new construction on
the campus. UBC's 1,200 students
canvassed door-to-door and at the
Pacific National Exhibition and
obtained 56,000 signatures on the
petition to the provincial
legislature.
Students capped the protest with
the Great Trek, which saw 1,100
students march to the university
from downtown.
The student pressure paid off
and   the   provincial   government
NSD to open some eyes
By JANET NICOL
National Student Day should get
students involved in student
representative assembly council
meetings, according to Eddie Abel,
western field worker for the
National Union of Students.
"I hope more students become
involved in the issues that affect
them and present them to council,"
Abel said in an interview Monday.
He said the purpose of NSD is to
increase student awareness and
for students to express their
concern.
Abel said the main points of
concern are tuition fee hikes,
student housing, student aid and
student unemployment.
He said the long-term plan of
NUS is to abolish tuition fees
completely, but current policy is to
prevent fees from rising.
Student housing has become a
critical situation ever since the
government  withdrew   student
mortgage assistance from the
Central Mortgage and Housing
Act, Abel said. NUS wants to
reinstate the mortgage assistance,
he added.
The. Canada Student Loan Plan
does not meet students' financial
needs, Abel said, because the
amount of summer wages students
make is not accounted for on an
individual basis. NUS also wants to
change the plan.
And students have been dropped
as a special category in government unemployment statistics,
Abel said.
He said that unless students are
identified separately, the problems
of student 'unemployment cannot
be identified. NUS hopes to change
this situation.
Abel said that NUS will present
its policies to the federal cabinet on
National Student Day. But he said
the importance of student issues
varies according to the preference
of students at individual universities.
The other universities in western
Canada should have a lot of participation, Able said. "And UBC
has a solid campaign and should
come off nicely," he said.
But Abel only predicted a 5 per
cent level of national participation
and said he was counting on NSD
being a media event.
decided to spend $1.5 million to
improve the campus.
During the Second World War
the armory was built as a student
project and after the war students
worked to raise funds to build the
War Memorial Gym.
Major student activism surfaced
again in 1962 when Harvard dental
college head Dr. John MacDonald
became UBC's fourth administration president.
MacDonald began his term of
office by conducting a study into
the future higher education needs
of the province. The result of his
inquiry, released in 1963, was the
MacDonald report.
The report recommended the
founding of additional universities
and regional colleges throughout
the province. When it seemed the
provincial government would not
act on MacDonald's recommendations, the students rallied
and began the Back Mac campaign, to agitate and petition for
the recommendations of the
report.

Canadian University Press
VICTORIA — University of
Victoria administrators will meet
with the B.C. Universities Council
next Tuesday in hopes of getting
funds for the construction of new
buildings on the UVic campus,
UVic vice-president George
Pederson said Monday.
Early last month the council
moved to block construction of new
buildings at UVic, in a report to
education minister Pat McGeer.
The report said UVic should be
allowed to complete the already
started administrative centre and
the Clarihue classroom building.
But the council blocked construction of the already approved
MacLaurin music wing, a fourth
Clarihue wing and a fourth
academic theatre building,
prompting an angry response from
UVic president Howard Petch and
the board of governors.
Several meetings between
Petch, UVic administrators,
council members and department
of education officials in October
yielded little beyond the promise
by council chairman William
Armstrong that the university
would get a chance to appeal the
decision.
So far there has been little indication of the origin of the dispute
between UVic's administrators
and the council.
There's been no indication of
why it started at all in the
correspondence from the council,"
said a member of the board of
governors. Tt's been very
civilized.
But government bodies just
don't turn around and change
courses like that. Nobody has ever
seen anything like it before."

to make the colleges into localized
training schools for people who
couldn't afford university or meet
the higher standards.
This attitude made students take
a look at the educational hierarchy, and in 1965, when a National
Student's Day was called to support universal accessibility to
higher education, 3,500 students
marched through the streets of
Vancouver.
In 1966 the issue was the shortage
of student housing, still a problem
today. Students built a tent city on
Main Mall to make their point.
They asked city council not to close
Point Grey and Kitsilano illegal
suites, and council agreed.
In 1967, once again in support of
MacDonald (although against his
will), students marched to Victoria
along with Simon Fraser
University and high school
students to press for a better deal
for the universities.
The demonstrators did manage
to get an audience with then-
education minister Les Peterson,
but failed to achieve any changes.
Peterson told them to go home
where they belonged.
When Jerry Rubin, U.S. radical
and Chicago conspiracy member,
spoke on campus in 1968, he instigated a demonstration with a
different twist. A group of 2,500
students marched into the
hallowed halls of the Faculty Club
and staged an all-night party.
The next, and last, major student
demonstration took place at the
U.S. border town of Blaine. It was
held to protest the Amchitka
atomic blast, which could have
created an earthquake and caused
Vancouver to take a dive into the
Pacific ocean. About 3,000 students
took part in the demonstration,
which was opposed by UBC's
student council.
Vancouver did not sink, and
students went home happy.

Women's groups at UB
ByKATHYFORD
There is a myth on this campus that
women are not organized and are not doing
much. In reality, there are many highly
organized women's groups that are
definitely doing things on campus.
The groups range from the athletic to the
political to the academic, but they all face
one common problem — most students on
campus don't know about the existence or
the purposes of these groups.
At UBC, there are some 15 groups oriented
toward women. They include one group for
faculty women, another for the university's
women staff members, and the remaining
groups tend to be student oriented or
general groups.
"I hate
to see UBC
degenerating
into an
academic
supermarket."
The most established of the general
groups is the dean of women's office.
Located in Buchanan 456, the office is
staffed by dean of women Margaret Fulton,
assistant deans Nancy Horsman and Joyce
Searcy and two secretaries.
In a recent interview, Fulton said one
main function of the office is to encourage
and assist women to achieve their full
potential at university.
"Essentially we are here to counsel
women with personal, social, academic and
financial concerns and to encourage a
general awareness of the many opportunities that are now available to
women."
Fulton adds: "The office is very active in
many areas of the university. It provides a
link between students and the administration and faculty. It serves as an
information centre for women's affairs.
Basically, we are trying to provide a climate
at the university that is conducive to
academic achievement, particularly that of
women."We are also trying to represent the
views of women to campus committees —
And we form a liaison with many off-
campus groups such as the university
women's club, alumni groups and the
downtown women's resources centre."
The office, funded by the university administration, currently receives only
enough money to run the office. However, in
years past, it has been able to sponsor
speakers, conferences and seminars. The
last conference the office worked with was
Working Women.
When the office first opened in 1921, it was
largely concerned with obtaining residence
accommodation for female students, and
supervising them. The office was more a
watchdog than an ally.
When Helen McRae was dean of women,
the role of the office changed and expanded.
Fulton says that since she became dean, she
has attempted to broaden the office's influence and make it a genuine women's
office on campus.
"I hate to see UBC degenerating into a
supermarket of academic information," she
says. "UBC may already be too big for us to
create a single university community.
Perhaps we need to break down into
faculties and colleges as British universities
do.
"This would enable students to once again
identify with a smaller organization. But
until that happens, without this office,
women are lost in the larger community."
Students, both male and female, who want
to talk with the dean or her assistants should
phone or drop in. It is usually best to make
an appointment, Fulton says, to be sure
someone will be there. The phone number is
228-2415.
The largest women's group at UBC is the
women's athletic association. By paying
AMS fees, every female student at UBC
automatically becomes a member and is
eligible to take part in athletics.
The association, a subsidiary of the Alma
Mater Society, is directed by physical
education professor Marilyn Pomfret. She
says women can try out for 29 intercollegiate teams in 18 different sports.
This year, about 500 women tried out, and
after selections 300 remain.
"As well, approximately 1,500 women
participate in intramurals," says Pomfret.
"There are a lot more who use the facilities
under the Recreation UBC program, but
since they do so on an individual basis, I
can't estimate how many there are."
Pomfret says within the association is a
highly organized group called the women's
athletic directorate.
"It consists of all women team managers,
six executives, and the student director of
intramurals. Mainly, the group provides
information to participants about what is
going on in athletics at UBC."
Pomfret says she would like to see all
women involved in athletics of one kind or
another. "The benefits are tremendous — it
provides an opportunity for broadening
social and physical horizons, and enables
women to do things together.
"Things are definitely progressing. There
used to be a women's gymnasium where
Buchanan Tower is now. Men and women
were segregated. Now, most activities are
completely integrated, and things are much
more normal."
She thinks the association is beginning to
have an influence on the role of women.
"There is more female participation in
athletics than ever, and a greater involvement and awareness on the part of
women.
The Alma Mater Society fee referendum
to be held Nov. 16,17, and 18 will be a major
step for the association, says Pomfret.
Currently, only 80 cents of the $5 athletic fee
paid by all students goes to women's
athletics, despite the fact women make up
almost half the student population. If the
referendum passes, women's athletics will
receive an additional $2 per student.
"This is the first time that women's
athletics have had a referendum. If students
pass it, we will be able to offer greater opportunities at a greater depth," she says.
Women are encouraged to get involved in
athletics. If you are interested in taking part
in intramurals, drop in to the women's intramural office, War Memorial Gym room
202, or phone 228-5326.
A more academic program is women's
studies, which was first offered as a credit
course in the fall of 1973. But there are only
three courses offered even now, says Sheila
Egoff, head of the women's studies committee.
Basically, women's studies courses attempt to provide various perspectives on the
roles, functions and expressions of women in
different societies. Anthropology professor
Helga Jacobson and sociology professor
Dorothy Smith are responsible for the
existence of the courses.
There is no official budget for the courses.
Egoff says the arts faculty gives released
time to the teachers of the courses, so people
who volunteer to teach the courses are given
a lighter load in their own departments.
What the committee is currently attempting to do is to develop senior level
courses, so students have the option of doing
a minor in women's studies, says Egoff. A
majors program. is another goal of the
committee.
Enrolment in the three courses totals 140
students, most of whom are women. Egoff
sees no reason why more men should not
take these courses. "I don't like divisions
along sex lines. There is too much of it
already. I think it would be better if more
men did take them. After all, there are more
women in engineering, medicine and law,"
she says.
It is too late to enroll in these courses this
year, but they'll be available next fall.
In a recent interview, Jean Laurence,
spokeswoman for the Association of
University and College Employees, local 1,
said 95 per cent of the union's 1,300 members
are women.
Although the union is not a women's
group, one of its major aims is to eliminate
the discrepancy in wages for what Laurence
calls male-type work and female-type work.
"Women should receive equal pay if they
have equal qualifications," she says.
"Equal pay for equal work is a commonly
held attitude, and we believe that our work
is as valuable as digging trenches or
cleaning test-tubes." Most of union's
members are library and clerical workers.
Another of the union's goals is to change
people's attitudes towards "women's
work," says Laurence. "In our society,
women's work is regarded cheaply. Society
doesn't view women's work as very important.
"It's a popular belief that if a man is doing
something, then it's automatically important."
One of the problems facing the union is
that many people do not have the time or the
motivation to be very active, she says. A
major reason for this is many of the women
have domestic obligations that take up
much of their spare time.
For this reason, most executive positions
in the union are held by male members. But
Laurence doesn't see this as a problem.
"Women with more domestic obligations
have less time. Usually men can devote
more energy. It doesn't reflect male
domination. I guess if the women had more
time it would be different, but I don't think
it's a problem now."
Linda Roberts, law 2, is co-head of
women's legal aid. She is one of 15 female
law students who run the program, one of
the many programs organized under the
UBC law students' legal advice program.
The program, which has been operating
for about five years, is staffed entirely by
women, says Roberts. It was started when
the few women who were in law at that time
decided that a feminine perspective was
needed. "It's more sympathetic to women in
law," she says. "Although we have a few
male clients, most people who come to us
are women.
"Many of these women are nervous about
seeing a male lawyer. They think that the
men will view their problems as trivial
simply because they are women. So they
come from all over Vancouver to our clinic
just because they know they can talk to a
woman."
She says some people think the need for an
all-female clinic is dying. But the group
justifies its existence by saying many
women see the legal profession as being
male-dominated. "The fact that there are
women coming from all over Vancouver to
the clinic shows that there is a real need for
it.
"Some people argue that women's legal
aid is practicing a form of reverse
discrimination, but law should serve the
needs of the community. Some women in the
community feel more comfortable with a
woman lawyer, just as some women feel
better going to a women doctor. We don't
just get feminists coming to us."

resolutions handed to it by the international
women's year committee.
The ad-hoc IWY committee was set up by
administration president Doug Kenny in
early 1975. At the end of the year, the
committee sent a set of recommendations to
the president, but they have yet to be
acknowledged, says Herson.
But the new committee is going ahead
with its plans for a conference in mid-
January, 1977. The conference is designed to
be a follow-up to the one that was held in
1975, will be called Breaking the Mould II:
The Basics and Beyond, and will feature
human rights commissioner Kathleen Ruff
as its main speaker.
At the conference, about 16 workshops will
be offered to participants. The committee
hopes to videotape parts of the conference.
Herson says the committee is composed of
female and male faculty members and one
student — but anyone who is interested can
join.
"The whole thing is very fluid," she says.
"People come and go. We are hoping that
other faculties will get involved with this."
The committee receives indirect funding
from the education faculty, and from the
B.C. Teachers' Federation, whose female
members are contacted from time to time
by the committee.
Anybody who is interested in joining the
committee, or finding out about its plans can
phone Herson's office in the elementary
education division, 228-5226.
Under the auspices of the centre for
continuing education, the women's
resources centre has operated the daytime
program of continuing education for three
years. The group is co-ordinated at UBC by
Ann Ironside and Eileen Hendry, but has its
main offices in the downtown branch of the
Vancouver Public Library at Burrard and
Robson.
Diana Cathcart, a volunteer at the centre,
says it operates mainly as a place where
women can get information and counselling
on many aspects of women's issues. Women
are helped to find a focus, and given advice
and support.
The centre also offers two types of
courses. The first type includes formal
courses, costing $35 to $45 in fees. A list of
courses is available from UBC's centre for
continuing education. Included in the
brochure is an application form which can
be mailed back.
The Courses include women in
management and personal development
courses. Cathcart says men are welcome to
take them, although they are geared toward
women.
Other courses are free. They run at noon
on weekdays, and are open strictly to
women, she says. Currently, a series entitled Women and Health is running. Cathcart said each course runs for six weeks on a
drop-in basis.
"Approximately 75 to 100 women are
attending our present course. They range in
age from teenagers to an 80-year-old lady.
Many are downtown workers. We try to
maintain contact with these women, as well
as with senior citizens."
The centre also maintains two filing
systems. One contains general information
about different agencies in the lower
mainland, and the other contains career,
health and other related information. Cathcart says: "Anybody at all can use these
files, and can go right in and look up information themselves. The files are totally
accessible to the public."
The centre's phone number is 685-3934.
A group of 40 or 50 faculty women met two
weeks ago to organize the academic
women's association. Spokeswoman Jean
Elder, a history professor, said the group's
main purpose is to enable faculty women to
get to know each other better.
Cathcart says registration clerks are at
the centre for two weeks at the start of the
spring and fall programs.
In addition to courses at the resources
centre, women can take various
psychological tests, ranging from personality tests to aptitude tests.
"This is a very large university, and even
departments within faculties are
segregated. I think it's interesting to find out
what people in, for example, science, are
doing. We are hoping to get to know one
another better," she said in a recent interview.
Because the group is so new, Elder could
not elaborate on what future activities
might be. She also could not say where the
group stands on issues such as
discrimination against women on the UBC
campus.
Besides the faculty women's association,
the most recently formed women's group on
campus is the women's committee. The
group was formed in September, and has
only recently been recognized by the student
representative assembly.
Committee member Fran Watters said in
a recent interview the committee has three
major objectives. "Our first objective is to
provide a place for women to go and relax
and talk with others. We hope to have a
supportive function. We also want to build
up a library of material that is oriented
towards women's issues.
"Our second objective is to form a
federation which will have regular
meetings. It will consist of reps from all
UBC women's organizations. They are all
really divorced from each other right now.
If we could organize ourselves, we'd have a
really big voting bloc. It would be like all the
gears getting together, in terms of strength.
"The third objective is to organize special
events such as speakers, seminars,
discussions and other activities like that."
The main problem facing the committee is
to get funding from the SRA.
Watters says the group can't ask the dean
of women's office for financial support
because it has only enough money to keep its
own office running.
The committee is also without a permanent home. The arts undergraduate
society is allowing it to use Brock 163 on a
temporary basis. The dean of women's
office lets the committee use the Mildred
Brock lounge for meetings.
Watters says the AUS has given the
committee $200, which is being used to put
out a questionnaire. Copies of the
questionnaire, which asks women what they
would like the committee to provide in
terms of services and acitivites, has been
distributed to residences, some undergraduate societies and to women's
studies students.
The committee plans to print as many
copies as possible. The main problem is
difficulty distributing the quesionnaire.
There are 20 to 25 committee members,
Watters says, and about half are involved
with the SRA. If you are interested in joining
the group, contact either Fran Watters or
Lorelee Parker at the AUS office or the SRA
workroom on the second floor of SUB, or
attend one of the committee meetings in the
Mildred Brock lounge any Thursday at 6
p.m.
So, if you want to become active in a
women's organization on campus, there are
plenty to choose from. Get involved!

Al Stewart stews about art
By LES WISEMAN
Last Tuesday evening I went to the Hyatt
Regency and interviewed Al Stewart. In
typical rock star style he was glued to the
television as I entered. He was very amiable
and willing to answer any questions, as well
as being quite articulate in his replies.
Ubyssey: How did you get started in the
business?
Stewart: I bought my first guitar when I
was 13. When I'd been playing for a couple of
years I left school and worked for about a
total of three months in various jobs, most of
which I got fired from. I started playing with
a local semi-pro band and I just didn't like
work. It was not compatible, like, with doing
a late gig and driving home and then having
to get up at 7 o'clock in the morning. So one
of them had to go, and that was daytime
work.
See, from the time I was 17 onward, I've
really only a worked a day time job three
weeks in my life. When I first came to
London I worked in a paper shop for three
weeks. But I prefer to live on, say, $10 a
week that I made out of music than to hold
down a job.
I played around coffee bars for a couple of
years, then I made an album. By the time
I'd made my second album I'd got involved
with the college circuit. That was around the
end of the 60s.
U.: Did you ever do any busking? I saw
some great talent in the subways in London.
S.: Yes, but people who start in subways,
end in subways. It isn't the way to do it. I
never did it.
I made two more albums while playing
around the English college circuit. Then by
late 72 I was getting fed up playing around
England, so I met Luke, who now manages
me.
I was doing Past, Present and Future at
the time and I told Luke that they wouldn't
take it in America. Columbia Records kept
turning us down. So Luke knew someone at
Janus records and we sent them Past,
Present and Future, and they took it. Since
then we've concentrated on America to the
extent that I haven't been back to England
in 18 months to work. Really North America
is all I'm really working on at the moment.
So that is the shape of things now.
U.: On the back of Love Chronicles there
is a 1969 Melody Maker interview which
says: "I'm not ready yet, to say anything of
value to the world outside my own immediate scene. I don't want to write yet
another song against the bomb or against
the war in Vietnam.
On the other hand the world is getting so
small that no one can afford to opt out. What
I'm trying to work on is exactly how I opt

"I like the world to be noisy, concrete and full of life.
in." Well, that was in 1969 and a lot has
happened since then, how do you opt in now?
S.: I'm doing the same thing. Except more
efficiently.
I played folk rock in 1969 and I'm still
playing folk rock. The only thing that's
changed is the presentation, instead of being
solo I now have a band on stage. The
production has improved immeasurably
because of using Alan Parsons. So I'm doing
the same thing I was doing seven years ago,
I'm just trying to do it better.
U.: On Love Chronicles you worked with
Jimmy Page. What do you think of his
work?
S.: I haven't heard the last three Led
Zeppelin albums. I hear the odd track
coming over FM radio but I don't like it very
much. I'm not into it.
U.: You've written several songs about
the sea. Have you had any sea experience
yourself?
S.: No, I just think it's sort of an English
thing, a basic national affinity with the sea,
ingrained over a couple thousand years of
living in close proximity to the sea. Sandy
Denny wrote lots of sea songs and I'm a big
Sandy Denny fan.
U.: History is one of the predominant
themes in many of your songs. Did you ever
formally study history or is it just a personal
interest?
Have you had any formal education?
S.: No, I was no good at passing exams, I
never studied, just played the guitar all the
time. I don't really have much interest in
formal education, it's not the right thing for
me. Perhaps it works for other people.
U.: Have you ever thought of publishing
your poetry in book form?
S.: No, because it isn't poetry, it's song
lyrics. I think there's quite a difference.
Poetry is something which is meant to be
read whereas lyrics are inextricably bound
up with the music. My lyrics are not meant
as poems.
U.: Are there any poets that have influenced you or that you particularly like?
S.: Well, Leonard Cohen's first album is
one of my favorite top half-dozen of all time,
I like him. I like Roger McGoff very much,
he's an English poet. I don't read much
poetry.
U.: You've mentioned Bogart, Lorre,
Bette Davis, and Greta Garbo in your songs.
Are you an old movie buff?
S.: Yes! I've seen most of the old Bogie
movies.
U.: Any favorites?
S.: Yeah, Casablanca. I think it's the best
one.
'U.: Your songs are sometimes based on
books, (i.e., Vonnegut, Solzhenitsyn, The
Centuries   of   Nostradamus   by   Erika
Cheetham). Do you get a chance to do a lot
of reading?
S.: I read fairly consistently. I've read
three books in the last week. Mervyn Peake
is my favorite author of all time. Vonnegut I
like a lot, obviously. I've just been getting
into E. L. Doctorow. I've just read three
Doctorow books.
U.: Ragtime?
S.: Yeah, I've read Ragtime. I love it. I've
just read Slapstick, the new Vonnegut book.
And I like Solzhenitsyn when he's writing
stuff like The First Circle. Gulag is almost
unreadable to me, but I love The First
Circle.
U.: Do you specifically read to find
material for songs?
S.: No, I just read books, that's all.
U.: How about Kerouac? You mention
him in Modern Times.
S.: No, I don't know anything about
Kerouac. I co-wrote that song with an
English guy who was very Kerouac influenced. I don't know anything about
Lawrence Ferlinghetti either.
Paul Simon once told me that Dylan was
just rehashed Ferlinghetti.
U.: In your introduction to Post World
War Two Blues last night, you mentioned
that rock stars were important to you as you
grew up.
S.: Everybody influenced me. I'm a total
product of the rock culture. From Elvis
Presley onward it has occupied most of my
time. There are very few people who I
haven't listened to at one time or another.
U.: Any real favorites? You mentioned
Hendrix.
S.: Yeah, Hendrix was the best guitarist. I
saw all three of his first 1967 appearances at.
the Savoy theatre when Brian Epstein was
still running it. I saw the Beatles and the
Stones when they originally toured. I saw
Dylan's '65 and '66 London performances. I
saw the first public performance of Tommy.
U.: Last night as you were introducing a
song about reincarnation you said that it
was a good idea for a song but that you
didn't necessarily believe in it.
S.: It's a possibility. As is getting knocked
down by a car as I leave the hotel tonight,it's
that much of a possibility.
U.: How about religious or philosophical
beliefs?
S.: I don't like religion in any shape or
form. I regard it as one of the real plagues
on the face of the planet. I don't like religion
or religious "people, especially when they
accost me in airports and try and push
horrendous books of gabbles and garbles
and misleading and misled philosophies on
me. Everybody's philosophy is different and
it's all their own.

Stewart on past, present, future
From page 10
My philosophy seems to revolve around
wine, women and song. That sounds worse
than I mean it to be. It's just that I have a
great interest in wine, I love song, and of
course I love women. There are other things
too, in life, but none as good as those three.
Tolkein once said, "Long ago when the
world was a greener and a quieter place."
So I assume his philosophy revolved around
that. I quite like the world to be noisy,
concrete and full of life. I'm happy in that
setting.
U.: Is the Year of the Cat
autobiographical?
S.: When I started out most of my songs
were autobiographical, now they're not.
U,: Is Carol autobiographical?
S.: Oh my band were all sleeping with this
girl in New York, seemingly
simultaneously. So I wrote a song about it. I
don't know if she was named Carol, all I
know is that she was in the bedroom with
five members of my band and a champagne
bottle. I don't know what happened, I wasn't
there. I was next door.
U.: What do you think about the British
musicians who are moving to the States to
avoid taxes?
S.: Lucky! Listen, 13 years in the
business, my aim is to break even. There's
nota year goes by that I'm not more in debt.
You see I like to tour and every time I tour I
get $75,000 further into the hole. So I'd now
say I'm a couple of hundred thousand
dollars down.
I don't know if I'll ever catch up with my
debts. So when you talk about taxes, you're
talking to the wrong person, I don't pay any.
I don't earn anything.
U.: What people do you enjoy listening to?
S.: It varies from day to day. My favorites
have been Dylan at first, his first seven
albums, the Band the first three albums,
Incredible String Band first four albums,
Leonard Cohen, Steely Dan one, two, four
and five, and the Who. I liked A Quick One
While He Was Away more than I did
Tommy, I thought that was the definitive
rock operetta. The Stones I like sometimes
but not really, the Beatles almost always.
U.: How about American music, the
Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane/Star ship?
S.: No interest. I don't like Jefferson
Airplane, what I've heard of them. I've got
one Grateful Dead album which I never
play. Let's see who does anything else in
America. Joni Mitchell is my all-time
favorite, of the moment. I think she's the
best. Paul Simon of course I like.
U.: You're not interested in jazz at all?
S.: Not at all. Not even slightly. The things
I like least in the whole are jazz, soul and
black music in any shape or form. And
Country and Western. Disco, I just can't
understand. They only say one thing and
they say it over and over again. 'I want to
take you higher, one more time, oh yeah!'
There's really only one lyric to a disco
record.' Youturn me on like a sex machine.'
I'm not really into the hook conception,
which is find a phrase and repeat it 37 times
in three minutes and you'll have a hit.
U.: What do you think of the future of folk
and rock?
S.: Oh, things come and go. My position in
the music business is not to come or to go but
merely to remain constant and to try and
achieve the best that I can do.
I have no idea of what the future of pop
music is in terms of these tidal waves that
sweep across it. I know what the future of
the kind of music I play is and that is as long
as it's done well, it'll always be there. Not
only that but it'll always be a dominant
factor in sales in the music industry.
Paul Simon albums still sell three million.
Dylan, however bad he tries to make his
albums these days, still sells. As do James
_   A
-matt king photo
Taylor, Phoebe Snow, Carly Simon and Joni
Mitchell.
U.: How do you do most of your writing?
S.: Under pressure. It happens when I'm
not touring. It happens when I've got an
album due and people are screaming for it.
The best definition of a writer is someone
who hates writing. I'm no exception to the
rule.
U.: What can we expect from Al Stewart
in the future?
S.: I've no idea. I haven't written any
songs beyond what's on The Year of the Cat.
I don't know.
Troubador's songs tell stories
Al Stewart is a unique performer. When he
walked on stage at the Queen Elizabeth
Theatre on Monday night I could not help
but think that, as his song One Stage Before
says, he is the reincarnation of a medieval
troubador. The instruments have changed,
the lyre has given way to a telecaster but
Stewart's songs tell tales as did those of the
musicians of old.
* Stewartandhis five piece band started off
the set with Apple Cider Re-Constitution
from his Modern Times album. Switching
from telecaster to acoustic he announced
that he was going to play one of his favorite
songs, a love song about people drowning in
the Atlantic. The Dark and The Rolling Sea
featured one of the bands' two keyboard
players on accordion, which added a sea-
shanty feel to Stewart's tale of ripping
mainsails and straining riggings.
The pause between each song of the
evening was filled with Stewart pre-fixing
the number with a patter about the setting of
the story or how he came about writing it.
He announced One Stage Before, from the
Year of the Cat album, by saying that it was
a song about reincarnation and that he
didn't necessarily believe in it but, he
thought that it was a good idea for a song.
The song featured guitarist Mark Golden-
berg, the only American in the band.
The setting of London is the background
for many of this Scotsman's songs. The
preamble for Soho (Needless to Say) was
about Stewart's days in the mod scene of
Soho. This song, as with all the others of the
evening, was a flawless reproduction of his
recordings.
When I was speaking with Al Stewart he
said that this was due to the fact that he
rehearses bands by handing them albums
and telling them to go home and learn them.
This doesn't lead to much spontaneity in the
music but because the coherent flow of
lyrics forming cohesive stories is integral to
Stewart's show I suppose this can be
overlooked.
Not the One was dedicated to anyone who
is falling out of love with someone they
thought they were in love with. Broadway
Hotel was dedicated to Leonard Cohen.
Stewart described this song as a thirteenth
floor elevator love song.
The patter may seem a bit trite but it lent
a warmth to the show and the rapport
between audience and performer was increased.
The highlight of the evening was Roads to
Moscow from the Past, Present and Future
album. Stewart on acoustic guitar opened
the song. The curtains behind him opened to
reveal a screen on which sepia-toned
slides of Hitler, Solzhenitzin, and the
Russian Campaign were shown.
CONCERT . . . flawless reproduction of recordings       _ma" ki"9 photo
Nostradamus was next with Stewart,
bathed in red and blue spotlights, starting
the song alone. The congas built up and the
whole band joined in. Contrasting with the
dead concentration of the crowd during
Roads to Moscow there was a lot of crap
happening in the audience. Some asshole lit
up a cigarette and another asshole made a
big thing out of it. It seems that people are
too concerned with their own little
idiosyncrasies to think about how their
outbursts are making the performer feel. He
must feel like he's pissing into the wind.
The set ended with the title song from the
new album The Year of the Cat. This new
album was been selling well and with
material like this the reasons are obvious.
The audience demanded an encore and
were given If It Doesn't Come Naturally,
Leave It from the new album, which was
followed by Carol. Requests for Carol had
been shouted out intermittently during the
evening and the crowd left satisfied and
happy.
Trocks liberate ballet
By WILL WHEELER
The men in tutus have finally come. With
all the grace and subtlety of a herd of
elephants, Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte
Carlo rendered such ballet classics as Swan
Lake, Don Quixote, Les Sylphides and Ecole
du Ballet during a two night stand at the
Queen Elizabeth Theatre.
Les Ballets Trockadero
at the Queen E.
Nov. 5 and 6
The all-male company donned toe shoes
and took on female roles in an excellent
night of parody. They were everything that
they were claimed to be, hilarious and
memorable.
The Trocks are devastating. There is
something about a 200-pound man traipsing
across stage in drag ballet costume which
mere words cannot describe. As critics have
pointed out, it's fairly amusing to watch
"something which is heavy trying to become
something which is light." (Remember the
dancing hippos in Walt Disney's Fantasia?)
Broad shoulders and hairy chests
protruding from plunging V-neck dance
tunics also have a certain appeal. It's all
things to all men, if you know what I mean.
But it certainly isn't any kind of cheap
female impersonation act. This is ballet,
lovingly choreographed and executed. The
Trocks know their stuff. The pieces which
are performed follow closely the classical
works upon which they are modelled.
Peter Anastos, artistic director of the
company has said, "we love ballet, and
we're certainly not trying to destroy it. But
dance should never be too sacred, and our
interpretation is a good way to make people
laugh."
With all its highflung artistic pretensions,
ballet is a ready target for satire. The
Trock's aim is dead on.
The symmetrical appearance of a classic
ballet company, achieved by strict height
and body size limitations, is non-existent.
The dancers of the company have an erratic
(to say the least) appearance. They range
from the majestic Olga Tchikaboumskaya
at 200 pounds, 6'5", to Zamarina
Zamarkova, whose "frail, spiritual qualities
have caused this elfin charmer to be likened
to a lemon souffle posed delicately on the
verge of collapse."

dance
Hairy ballerinas perform well
From page 11
The dance style of the company
is particularly notable for limp
wrists and flat feet. Other aspects
of dramatic expression are also
outstanding — tongues hanging
out, creaking backs and various
antics by le corps du ballet. At
times the performance verged on
burlesque — real swish dancing.
All the same, the company
displayed technical proficiency in
difficult areas .of ballet technique,
especially with point shoes.
Judging by past reviews their
standards have steadily improved.
At times the audience showed its
admiration for their skill as well as
their ability to be funny. The
Trocks confirmed that in order to
make fun of something it is
necessary to know it.
Like any great ballet company,
the Trocks have a large and varied
repertoire. During their two nights
in Vancouver they presented two
separate programs.
On Friday the program consisted
of Swan Lake, Phaedra
Monotonous No. 1148, Spring
Waters, The Dying Swan, Go for
Barocco and Don Quixote. Swan
Lake, which was originally written
by Tchaikovsky in 1877 and has
since become part of the repertoire
of classical ballet companies
everywhere, is the "signature
work" of the company. The Dying
Swan, scored by Camile Saint-
Sens, was created by Fokine for
Anna Pavlova in 1905. As the
program states, "Zamarina
Zamarkova offers her own
distinctive interpretation of the
terminal foul."
Go for Barocco is based on the
stylistic foibles of Balanchine, at
one time choreographer of Les
Ballet Russes (besides Massine,
Fokine and Nijinsky) and performed to the music of J. S. Bach.

REVIEW COURSE
consisted of Les Sylphides,
Phaedra (again), Harlequinade
Pas de Deux, Pas de Quatre and
Ecole du Ballet. Les Sylphides was
originally choreographed by
Fokine and first performed in 1907.
Based on the music of Chopin and
suggestive of Giselle, it was the
first abstract classical ballet.
Ecole du Ballet is a piece which is
traditional in many dance
repertoires, recalling the toil and
sweat of the dance academy which
lies behind the glamor of the stage.
The capacity crowd came to be
amused. They were not disappointed. In fact, the audience itself
was rather amusing — several
drag queens were out in full
regalia, providing a welcome
flashback to Hallowe'en. Also
present were fanatical dance fans
and members of the general
public, attracted by the prospect of
a good clean transvestite act.
The company comes not from
Monte Carlo as the name suggests,
but from New York.  Any  God
fearing Canadian will tell you New
York is thoroughly decadent. It is
the place where anything can and
will happen. It is also the dance
capital of the world. Combine these
two elements and it's not surprising that Les Ballets
Trockeradero started there.
It began several years ago as the
offshoot of another travesty dance
company, Les Trockadero
Gloxinia. As time passed Les
Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo
overcame its rival, which has
remained a minor female impersonation act. The Trocks have
played to packed houses in New
York for several years and they
are now touring North America.
They have issued the challenge —
"We've conquered New York, but
is the rest of the world ready?"
Vancouver certainly was. From
beginning to end the audience
cracked up, proving once more
that art is not always serious
business. Down with boring dance,
we need to be liberated.

drama
New life for ancient plot
By MAUREEN KIRKBRIDE
If one can judge a play by the
sizeof the audience, The Boys from
Syracuse must be excellent. The
musical parody of Shakespeare's
Comedy of Errors is an extravagant production currently
showing at the Freddy Wood
Theatre.
The Boys From Syracuse
by Rogers and Hart
directed by John Brockington
at the Frederic Wood Theatre
until Nov. 16
The first thing which struck me
was the time, effort and money
which must have gone into
creating the costumes and
scenery. Picture a staircase
bounded by pillars on either side of
the stage rising to join in the centre
to a small platform. In one musical
number, "Oh, Diogenes!", as the
courtesan dances up the stairs
each step in turn lights up — a very
impressive sight.
The choreography by Grace
Macdonald was also impressive,
especially in the aforementioned
courtesan scene.
The Boys from Syracuse is a play
of mistaken identity taking place in
ancient Greece. The introduction
provides us with the basic
elements of the plot. There are two
sets of identical twins: Antipholus
of Syracuse and his brother Antipholus of Ephesus who are both
the   sons   of   a   merchant,   and
Dromio of Syracuse and his
brother Dromio of Ephesus who
are the servant boys of the two
Antipholuses.
The four were travelling by sea
seven years previous to the
opening of the play when a storm
struck and forced them to abandon
ship, thus becoming separated, one
half of the two sets going to
Syracuse with the father, the other
half going to Ephesus with the
mother.
But the plot thickens more as
Antipholus and Dromio of
Syracuse decide to seek out their
brothers. After years of searching
they arrive at Ephesus where,
unbeknown to them, Antipholus'
father has also arrived. And this is
where the tale of mistaken identity
begins.
The first scene was disappointing as well as confusing. The
timing and delivery of the puns
was poor and the production just
did not hang together. Fortunately,
as the performance proceeded it
improved, until by the end it was
well done.
The two rising stars out of the
production are UBC's Kim Stebner
and Pamela Schwartz. Often the
use of professional actors from the
Canadian Actors' Equity
Association leads to uneven performances, but with Stebner as
Antipholus of Ephesus and Schwartz as Luciana this was not the
case.
The Boys from Syracuse, as a

future printing investments  and
more office supplies.
Maurer also points out that
students pay the lowest rate for a
student newspaper in Canada.
Students now pay about $1.20 a
year for The Ubyssey. At Simon
Fraser students are paying $5.50
for the twice-weekly student
newspaper, The Peak.
The Ubyssey is currently typeset
and printed at College Printers,
and printing costs slice $97,000 out
of the newspaper's annual budget.
Once the Anti-Inflation Board's
controls are lifted, printing costs
are expected to soar to correspond
with increased salary costs.
Staffers plan to save enough
money out of the increases to set up
a typesetting shop on campus. The
shop would be a non-profit
organization, decreasing Ubyssey
costs and allowing other student
organizations to use the shop at a
low cost.
Another important part of The
Ubyssey is the photography
department. Supplies and new
equipment is needed by staff
photographers.
CITR radio runs a close second
to The Ubyssey in financial gains
from a successful referendum.
CITR would have an additional
$7,000 in its annual budget. The
newly acquired FM cable would be
upgraded with the additional
money, says CITR president
Richard Saxton.
The major criticism of CITR is
that it is one of the most expensive
groups on campus yet only serves a
small percentage of students.
But Saxton argues that with the
newFM cable, CITR will be able to
expand its audience significantly.
CITR is currently heard in SUB
and UBC's residences.
Because of the expense of FM
cable, CITR has been forced to
solicit additional funding from the
community. Two other Canadian
campus radio stations that have
FM cable, Carleton and the
University of Manitoba, have been
unable to meet the costs.
CITR has about 50 members this
year, 12 of them women. There are
even a few engineers who are
responsible for  the  electrical
engineering of the station.
Members run their own three-hour
shows ranging from music
broadcasts to news updates.
UBC's football Thunderbirds are
also given play-by-play coverage
at home and at out-of-town games.
The intramurals budget will be
boosted an additional $7,000 if the
referendum succeeds. Intramurals
director Nester Korchinsky says
the costs of sports facilities are
rising rapidly and more money is
needed to offset costs. Especially
costly, Korchinsky says, are rental
of facilities, referee fees and
publicity.
Intramurals — sports programs
which allow non-jocks to form their
own teams for competition — has
been booming this year, according
to Korchinsky. He said programs
take years to expand and gain
popularity and only a short time to
fold, which is what Korchinsky
predicts if there is no additional
funding.
Four divisions make up intramurals — men's intramurals,
women's intramurals, co-
recreation intramurals and a new
division this year of faculty, staff
and grad intramurals.
Sports range from hockey to
canoeing. Korchinsky says the
intramurals have been at UBC
since the university began. He said
they have always been well
received because students enjoy
participating in sports without
getting involved with the time and
competitiveness required for
varsity sports.
New features on this year's
program are Jog Friday, where
students sign up to run two to four
miles every Friday. Ski trips to
Whistler, Cypress Bowl and
Hollyburn have also been expanded this year under the intramurals program.
In separate referenda to be held
at the same time, students will be
asked whether they want to join the
B.C. Students' Federation and the
National Union of Students, by
paying a $1 per student per year
levy to each group.
Also requested will be a $2 increase in women's athletics.
The last successful AMS fee
increase referendum was in 1949.
ifcK<D«a*a>
comedy, was quite amusing. The
timing, an especially important
element in this type of play, was
generally good apart from the first
scene. This became obvious at
many spots throughout the play,
but particularly in a chase scene
between Dromio and Antipholus.
The farcical figures of the two
Dromios and a rather effeminate
goldsmith add much to the humour
of the play. There was a good deal
of slapstick and puns which were
often suggestive. The typical joke
runs along the following lines:
"What do you know about Ephesus
women?", to which is replied,
"Only what I've been able to pick
up." The technique of undercutting
famous figures, Ovid for example,
is also employed.
The purpose of a musical is to
provide light entertainment. In
this, The Boys from Syracuse was
successful. The singing, dancing
and jokes combined together to
make for an enjoyable production. If, however, you are looking
for a play posing deep
philosophical questions, this is
definitely not the show for you.

a 75-yard touchdown drive in eight
plays. Penn finished the drive off
by taking a swing pass from Smith
and running 13 yards to the end
zone, breaking three tackles on the
way.
Fraser led the Huskies back 11
plays later when he capped off a 76-
yard drive with a four-yard toss to
Bill Bowd.
The 'Birds took the lead for good
with just under a minute left in the
half on a third down gamble. Penn
went off tackle, took advantage of
a good block by Wallace, and
scampered 58 yards for a*touch-
down.
On the ensuing kickoff, kicker
Gary Metz broke the game wide
open when he hit Huskies kick
returned Tim Molnar and knocked
the ball loose. Digby Leigh
recovered for UBC on the Huskie
20. Smith hit Leigh in the end zone^
41 seconds later and the 'Birds had'
a 22-10 half time lead.
The Huskies tried to move the
ball in the third quarter by picking
on cornerbacks Bernie Crump and
Al Chorney, with a notable lack of
success. 'Bird defensive halfback
Craig Miller was of much
assistance, forcing several in-
completions with timely hits.
UBC iced the game up with two
touchdowns late in the third
quarter.
Saskatchewan punter Dave
Osiowy had the snap from centre
sail over his head; he recovered
the ball but Miller hit him before he
could get the kick away. Osiowy
made a run for daylight but was
immediately brought down by
Kevin Konar on the Huskies' 38.
Smith moved the 'Birds in with
passes to tight end Even Jones and
Wallace, then Penn scored on a 13-
yard run.
After the kickoff the Huskies'
took over on their own 24. Fraser
went back to pass on first down and
had to hurry his throw as Eric Ford
charged in on a safety blitz. Knoar
picked off the pass and scampered
30 yards for the major score. Metz
converted for the fifth time that
day to end the scoring.
The  Huskies  were  unable ' to
threaten during the final quarter
SPOR TS
as the UBC defence played tougher
as time wore on.
Greg Gardner took over for
Smith late in the game and moved
the offense well. The game ended
with UBC on the Huskies' four yard
line.
The UBC defence was superb
throughout the afternoon. The
linebackers and line effectively
shut off the Huskies' ground game,
limiting them to 92 yards for the
day. The backs played their best
home game of the season, continually denying Saskatchewan the
big play they needed so
desperately for much of the game.
Offensively, UBC displayed the
potent balanced attack that has
had opposing coaches in fits
throughout the year. The line, led
by centre John Marquardt and
tackle Al Cameron, consistently
got the best of a bigger and more
experienced Saskatchewan team.

most of the second half. At the final
buzzer the score was tied at 76-76.
Near the end of the five minute
overtime period the score was
again tied at 82-82. Bird forward

in their field goal percentages
leading the 'Birds 41 to 39 per cent.
But the 'Birds outshot the Bullets
89-79 for the game.
In the rebounding department it
was again close. The 'Birds
maintained a slight edge, out-
boarding Burnaby 43-39. Top
rebounder for the 'Birds was Ed
Lewin who picked up four offensive
and seven defensive rebounds.
In the 'Birds other non-
conference game played on Friday
night they easily defeated the
North Shore Mountaineers  96-77.
The game was never in doubt as
the 'Birds outplayed the Mountaineers in every department. UBC
coach Peter Mullins used all of his
bench through the game. An indication is the balanced scoring
among the players. All but one of

High scorer for the 'Birds was

year, added 12.
In the shooting department the
'Birds were 41 for 103 while the

statistically though was in
rebounding. The 'Birds easily

Almost 3,000 people attended the
game, a record for a football game

UBC will play before five times
that many this Saturday. The
Mustangs dumped Sir Wilfred

for the game. As things worked out
they will be playing in their home

Losing baptism
for UBC squash
By JOANNA MOSS
The women's squash team
dropped a 3-2 decision Thursday to
Jericho Tennis Club.
Barbara Kennedy, Sandra Smith
and Leslie Joy held the winning
matchew while Brenda Lundman
and Kathleen MacLean both lost
their matches 3-2. The team plays
in the Vancouver City league.
This is the first year that UBC
has had a women's squash team.
None of the team members has had
any previous tournament experience except for Brenda Lundman who is ranked as an A player
on the Pacific Coast. She is also
coach and manager for the rookie
team.
Lundman is a grad student
working toward her Ph.D. in
economics at UBC. She first
started playing squash in her
undergraduate years at McGill.
"What I would really like to see get
started is a Canada West conference for squash," she said
Thursday.
"But it won't be in the near
future because there are so few
squash teams in B.C." The Vancouver City league has six teams.
The women's team had trouble
getting practice time at the
Thunderbird Winter Sports Centre.
There are only four squash courts
and they are booked on a contract
basis by private clubs. This means
that people can book ahead for
court time throughout the year.
The squash courts are not a UBC
facility so they are not free for
UBC teams.
"The casual student really has
no chance to play squash." Lund
man said. "Most people don't
realize that thecontracts go out the
week before school starts. If a
student wants to book a court he
has to get to the booking office at
least a week in advance and hope
there is no contract booking at the
time he wants."
The squash team asked for a
booking for practice time in July.
"They told us there was no
problem and to come back on Aug.
23," Lundman said. "We contacted
them again in August asking for
practice time at 5 p.m. on Mondays. The contract came through a
couple of days later and not only
did we not get the day we wanted
but the times ranged anywhere
from 8 until 10:30 at night."
When Lundman complained to
the booking office, she was told
thata private club had a booking at
the time she wanted. She was also
told she should have contacted
them earlier in the summer. "We
had to take the times that were
left," Lundman said.
Next Thursday the team takes on
Hollyburn Country Club at
Hollyburn.
