The UBC administration
plans a parking fee hike this
fall, according to AMS president Peter Braund.
Braund told The Ubyssey
President John Macdonald
warned him of the proposed
increase last week, from $5 to
$7.50 for students and from $10
to $20 for faculty.
"My first reaction was to be
opposed," Braund said.
"However, council will hold
a special seminar June 6 to discuss official AMS policy.
The administration is sending a representative to explain
reasons for the proposed increase.

income will come from the proposed hike.
Braund was uncornmittal
about future action the AMS
might take.
"We must consider all the
alternatives," he said.
An AMS seminar on student
radicalism has been postponed
to permit immediate discussion
of the parking fee hike.
Asked whether council would
organize a park-in as McMaster
university students did last
year to block a similar increase,
Braund said:
"This proposed parking increase has the same effect as
a tuition fee increase.
"It is an important precedent,
however,  that the administration   is   consulting   us   before

UBC's chancellorship race has finished with the victor
and the vanquished taking similar viewpoints of the major
election issue — student participation in university affairs.
But one supports a sweeping
change and the other a more
"indirect" form of student involvement.
And Buchanan agrees to student  participation  as  long  as
the involvement is limited.
"Student interest should be
encouraged," he said, "but the
fact that students are at the
university to study should limit
their participation to indirect
He did not specify what indirect channels might be, but said
he approved of an attempt by
two law students to .win senate
The two, Mike Hunter, Law
II, and Hugh Swayze, Law III,
both failed to gain seats.
"I regret that they didn't
get in," Buchanan said.
Enomoto advocated a system
of university government with
student participation even at
the top levels of administration.
His participation in the election exposed this issue, he said.
"There was a genuine conflict presented. It must have
disrupted the smooth, well-
oiled attitude of the administration and the alumni association," said Enomoto.
Enomoto said the 25 per
cent vote he received was more
significant than he first realized.
"The majority of voters
would vote for the status quo
candidate," he said, "but if
those who voted for me understood the full importance of
what' I was running for, then
there is very solid opposition
to the present undemocratic
form of university government."
... he won
Enomoto said he was not disappointed with the election outcome.
"Buchanan is better qualified for the present system of
university government; I am
more qualified for a radically
different system."
He added that the backing
Buchanan received from the
alumni association in the Alumni Chronicle probably did him
more harm than good.
"The alumni association was
genuinely concerned about my
running," he said, "and in the
face of any fresh challenge it
tends not to know how to act."

Money makes chancellors
What does it take to be
According to UBC's Alumni
Association it takes a knack
for making money, charges ex-
resident poet Earle Birney.
Birney, in a letter addressed to the association at its annual dinner meeting May 11,
accused the alumni of "partisan
electioneering" in the spring
edition of its chronicle. It
carried a picture of newly-
elected Chancellor John Buchanan, and an editorial supporting him against Randy Enomoto.
The poet listed the qualifications highly regarded by the
Chronicle as experience as "a
director  of pulp  and packing

Future generations of tree-
climbing, flower-picking UBC
scholars will have 46 more
acres to romp in, president
John Macdonald has announced.
Including a present 14-acre
garden and park already developed, the new land will
mean a 58-acre arboratum and
botanical garden, he said.
The present 4%-acre rock
garden will be gradually ripped out, Macdonald said, with
movable trees shifted to the
new area.
• •    •
Thirty acres of the new land
lies east of the campus between
Marine Drive and a proposed
new route through the endowment lands.
Another 14 acres is behind
the new stadium near Totem
"These areas are the best on
campus for new gardens," Macdonald said. "The campus as
a whole has one of the best
climates in the world for botanical gardens."
Macdonald also said 125 undeveloped acres in 21 tracts
will be reserved for research
work in agriculture, forestry,
pharmacy and the sciences.
Endowment land sites for a
new B.C. Research Council
building, a $13 million nuclear
research centre and a project
under study by the National
Institute of Astronomy were
also reserved.
• •   •
"All the new areas are highly accessible for public use and
enjoyment,"  Macdonald   said.
Easy public access to the
new botanical garden is expected to come from an extension
of Sixteenth Avenue planned
by the provincial highways department.
The new areas for development will be screened from
each other by wide bands of
trees, some natural, sotne
industries, fisheries, banks, insurance and mortgage companies, and the UBC Development   fund" — which   meant
. . . dirty alums
"eminent service to the university, the community, the
province and the nation" to
Buchanan's backers.
Birney said of the Chronicle's
"This expensive, cliche-
packed document is an arrogant misuse of money entrusted to you. The Alumni Association was not founded or
supported to finance partisan
electioneering in the selection
of the university's chancellor.
"That you have engaged in
such tactics simply creates another argument for voting
against your candidate."
The association having had,
in Birney's words, "the impertinence to lobby the whole of
convocation in his (Buchanan's) favor," mailed out 21,441
copies of the front page picture
and the editorial to graduates
not on the Chronicle's subscription list.
Irving computer fumbles
The computer fumbled when it sent chancellor and
senate election ballots to UBC graduates in May.
Senate candidate Dick Hayes, 25, a 1965 UBC law
graduate, said he and his wife received a total of five ballots for the chancellorship election.
"I got two for my present and old addresses," he said,
"And my wife got three — one each for her married and
maiden names and one for a combination of the two."
Hayes said they each sent in only one ballot.
He was unsuccessful in winning a senate seat.

Grad students lose bid
for alum board positions
Four graduate student candidates for the UBC alumni association management board
were voted out May 11 at the
alumni annual dinner meeting.
The stormy meeting endorsed
the slate officers put forward
by the alumni association's
nominating committee.
Byran Belfont, one of the
grad student candidates, repeatedly challenged the validity of the election, but 1965
president Rod Macdonald's ruling that the election was legal
was upheld by a voice vote of
the 750 attending.
Alumni officers elected by
acclamation were Kenneth
Martin, president, Davis Helli-
well, treasurer, and 16 degree
representatives. Vice-presidency candidates put forward by
the alumni association nominating committee and duly elected were Mrs. John Lecky, Stan
Evans, and Dr. Walter Hard-
Contesting the three vice-
presidencies were 1965 CUS
chairman Ed Lavalle, Mrs.
Sonja Sanguinetti and Belfont.

Since no identification of
voters was asked for when ballots were handed out at the
meeting, Belfont challenged the
election's legality.
Other grounds he named for
a disqualification of the vote
were: the ballots were not numbered, the ballot boxes were
not locked, there had been no
notification of candidates of
electoral procedures, the $6-a-
plate dinner preceding the
meeting meant that those alumni present could not be representative of the alumni association's 25,000  members.

average for the last two years
of her course as spectacular.
He described Wadge as a
very close second.
Miss Darcus will receive an
honors degree in classics and
says she plans to enter postgraduate studies here.
Wadge won a Woodrow Wilson scholarship for work in
pure math and will go to the
U.S. for graduate studies.

Now that John Buchanan has been elected chancellor, he is free to enter the spirit of free inquiry which
president John Macdonald says characterizes a university.
At first he declined discussion of issues in a campaign which contained them, preferring to loll upon his
Hie UBC Alumni Association thus was forced to
lower its own dignity to ensure he defeated radical
Randy Enomoto — but since Mr. Buchanan wouldn't
say anything, the association could only issue a glossy,
inane plea for responsibility and respectability.
Mr. Buchanan now says the issue of student participation in university affairs must be re-examined.
But he says he hasn't given it much thought yet
Shades of 1963 and Mrs. Frank Ross and Mrs. Henry
Angus, who campaigned for chancellor on an I've-got-
more-friends-than-you-dearie basis.
We wonder what Mr. Buchanan was thinking while
Enomoto campaigned against him and newsmen all over
Canada pestered him for comment.
But we must applaud his perception — when one-
quarter of the votes were for an adamant radical voice,
he duly decided to give the matter some consideration.
"There should certainly be close co-operation between students and the university," he said.
But he doesn't know wether students should participate directly or indirectly in university government
We trust Mr. Buchanan will not make the error
made by the AUCC's Duff-Berdahl report on university
In effect, it advocated a token participation by students, a placebo with which to buy them off and avert a
much-feared Berkeley.
Hopefully, Mr. Buchanan will not resort to tokenism
but instead will have the couTage to confront the situation and realize students are the reason for existence of

Somehow, we can't get very traditionally excited

Contrary to the dictum of the American Dream,
college never seemed a placed to play youthful games

The '66 grad is used to working — summer and

He's been paying into pension and medical plans
and monthly income tax deductions for years.

He's in his early twenties, been ironing his own

Incongruously, then, the '66 grad takes a day off

community sends him farewell into the wide world.
And so the 1966 grad shambles off, perhaps to find

glove' is pretty rusty actually,
as will probably appear in
glorious technicolor at the next

'Election easier-hence the smell'
So highly undemocratic procedures were instituted to make
the elections "easier". Hence
the smell.
Grad student candidate Bryan Belfont pointed out there
was no voter identification at
the meeting, the ballots were
not numbered, the ballot boxes
were not numbered, and so on.
But in a voice-vote, the election was ruled democratic. Approximately the same logic ap>-
plies to democratically electing
a  dictator-for-life.
Saddest of all was the feeling of the meeting when the
results were in and it was announced none of the reform
candidates had made it.
Excited alumni buzzed with
satisfaction; one got the impression they believed they
believed they had truly achieved something that night by putting the "rebels" down.
Whereas in actual fact, what
they had achieved was the preservation of a very shaky status-quo for another year.
These reform candidates
were hardly out to "destroy"
the university, as new alumni

$7,000 AVERAGE
Profs' pay hiked
to stay in running
Fees won't go up this year
but profs' salaries will.
Salary increases for 1,012
faculty members and administration executives totalling
$1,017,554 have been approved
by the board of governors.
Over-all average increase is
about $1,000. The average salary rises to $11,649.
"The increases maintain the
competitive salary position we
have managed to establish with
leading Canadian and many
American universities." said
UBC president John Macdonald.
Macdonald said it is essential
to remain competitive because
of the shortage of university
teachers holding Ph.D. or other
graduate degrees.
"We  must  meet  salary  in
creases elsewhere each year if
we are to retain our better
teachers and attract others of
high calibre," he said.
Macdonald said UBC is striving to expand the number of
graduate students — and is
succeeding to the extent of 200
or more each year — to help
overcome a growing national
shortage of teachers with graduate degrees.
Macdonald said the salary
increases are based on three
levels, applied to meet individual situations:
A basic increase; an additional increase for most faculty
based on merit; and increases
to recognize exceptional merit.
Average. increases range
from $1,092 for deans to $740
for lecturers.

1922 Great Trek began
student rejection of apathy
If the recent activities on
North American campuses
has led you to think the protest march is a product of
this generation, your UBC
history is lacking.
Vancouver got its first
taste of student action in
Students, 1,200 of them,
marched through downtown
Vancouver, caught the tram
to 10th and Sasamat and
marched down a horse trail
to the infant Point Grey
campus. Construction on the
campus had stood idle since
Harry Logan, 1912 UBC
graduate who later became
a UBC teacher, department
head, senator and governor,
says in Tuum Est—a history
of the university he wrote in
1958 — the action had been
caused by the hard wall of
apathy from Premier John
Oliver's Liberal government.
The Point Grey site had
been chosen in 1907. Construction had started in 1914
only to be stopped by the
First World War. After a
history of false starts and
government disregard, indignant UBC students decided in 1922 they would force
the government's hand.
During the summer they
carried petitions for their
Build the University Campaign all over B.C. By late
October, 1922, they presented a 56,000 signature petition urging government
action to the legislature.
The campaign reached its
climax Oct. 29 with the
march to the campus — the
great trek. At the end of the
trek each student threw a
stone on a pile in front of
the science building (now
the old chemistry building)
which had stood an empty
concrete frame for eight
years. Later the stones were
cemented into the cairn in
the same spot on main mall.
The trek proved its point.
Nov. 9 the government announced a grant of $1.5 million for construct ion on
lion for construction on
Point Grey.
By fall of 1925, the university had its first permanent campus (even if some of
the buildings were semipermanent). The Library
and science block and a complex of frame buildings (old
forestry, mathematics buildings) were the extent of
Classes were held from
1906 to 1907 in the unused
rooms of King Edward High
school. When this space was
needed by the school, the
university moved to the vacant city hospital buildings
at Cambie and Pender.
They were forced to leave
these when the health inspector condemned them in
However the government managed to supply
a number of large shingled
shacks next to the Vancouver General Hospital and
let the university use one of
the stone hospital buildings
as a library. The 190 person
school occupied these buildings in 1912. These were the
Fairview shacks, where the
university would remain
until the 1922 great trek
opened the way for their
final move in 1925.
The plans for the university by Vancouver architects
Sharpe and Thompson were
a great change from Fair-
Just after arriving at the
new campus, students started a tradition that has followed us to the present day.
They accepted an increase in
AMS fees to allow for the
building   of   a   gymnasium.
The building was finished in
1929. Today it is the women's gym.
Just when things seemed
to be finally going for the
university, the depression
came to get them back into
In 1930 the government
grant was $625,000, the largest given until the 1950's.
This was to build Forestry,
Home Ec and a permanent
Arts Building. As the depres-
s i o n progressed however,
grants dwindled, a fee increase became necessary,
from $100 to $125.
The university recovered
from the degression however. It started reconstruction before the depression
was over. Some areas as
early in 1933.
The Second World War
brought further changes on
the campus. The armory was
built with student funds.
Temporarily the campus
turned to the war effort and
forgot its expansion. In
1944-45 the population stood
at 3,000. Two years later
with the return of servicemen it had leapt to 9,000.
To handle the increase
huts were brought onto the
campus — but for classes
and living space.
Somewhere in the post
war boom the old plans of
Sharpe and Thompson got
lost. Between 1945 and 1951
no fewer than twenty permanent buildings were put up.
Agriculture, science and a
hospital all got their share.
The residence situation on
campus was handled by Gordon Shrum, present chancellor of Simon Fraser. Residences in the form of army
huts were supplied at F'ort,
Acadia, Little Mountain and
Lulu Island Camps. 2,200
persons, including families
were housed in 1948.
Residences grew with
Lower Mall in 1958 and Totem park in 1964. The Huts
still remain at Fort Camp
and Acadia. Married student
suites are promised for fall
in Acadia.

Some of us who have received a university education
and are now in transit to
"adulthood" may be haunted
by the feeling that our four-
year stint in academe has
done little for us as persons.
We are now proud owners
of the DEGREE, the credential, but what is our status
as human beings? How do we
look in the adult, restricted
version? Above all, how do
we contend with the violence
that we calculate against
each other in our personal
We live in a society whose
character is such that the
only way we can live is
if someone else fails. The
only way we can live is
through the death of others
as persons. In order to compete, it is necessary to win,
and to win, it is necessary to
play the game properly.
Surely we've learned that
much by now? We have
learned to "play up to" and
"out-psyche" our professors
by giving them what they
want from us within the required time. Reward: 3 units.
And now, the degree. How
do we look after our liberal
education? Are we liberals?
Let's attempt a description
of the finished product.
The liberal is obsessed by
image. He is cautious and
fearful lest some error in his
image betray him into an
overt declaration or a position   or   recognizable stand.
By this choice, he must exist as a divided self, as a
man existentially dishonest
with himself and alienated
from himself. And so he retreats into a studious neutrality which is really anonymity, a lack of identity, a
lack of commitment, a non-
being. If we question the discontinuity of his beliefs and
his acts, then his answer is:
I hold the same views you
do, I believe the same things
you do, but now is not the
time to achieve them — the
time isn't ripe, the public
isn't ready for it yet.
At times, the liberal prides
himself on his neutrality —
it is a matter of integrity on
his part that he is apolitical
and non-ideological in his
views   and   actions.   He
chooses, somehow, to be innocent of the human condition, to separate himself from
the context of human activity
into which he was born and
to which he must inevitably
He fails to realize, as Sartre says, that there is NO
EXIT. Often, the liberal
passes off his estrangement
from the human condition as
an "intellectual postion" or
as a "critical role". In fact,
his position is anti-intellectual and non-critical in the extreme, because it fails to realize that the decision to remain passive and to suspend
oneself from acting is perhaps the most powerful and
political role that a man can
play today. For it is by our
inactions and silences that
we become DEPUTIES to the
executioners. It is the softcore individuals who service
tyranny with their apathy
who are the major obstruction to the wretched and oppressed of this earth.
Liberalism says it is dirty
and extreme to become involved and partisan. Yet liberalism is the most dirty and
extreme doctrine of the
twentieth century.
Examine the liberal attitude towards revolution. The
liberal is unable to commit
himself lo revolution or
against revolution, but must
situate himself outside the
political circumstance, sniffing for good and evil. His
pre-occupation is with obtaining a morally balanced
picture of the world. He is
an aesthete whose only concern is to impose a pleasing
order — however artificial
— upon the irrationality and
absurdity of a world in torment. By some magic trick,
he is able to remove himself
from the suffering of real
people, of his brothers and
sisters, and to dismiss their
agony with his balancing and
juggling acts.
An example of the liberal
stance: "Of course the Chinese have made great strides,
BUT ..." As Carl Oglesby,
president of Students for a
Democratic Society remarked at a march on Washington
last November, "There is
simply no such thing now,
for us, as a just revolution
— never mind that for two-
thirds of the world's people
the 20th century might as
well be the Stone Age; never
mind the melting poverty
and hopelessness that are the
basic facts of life for most
modern men; and never mind
that for these millions there
is now an increasingly perceptible relationship between
their sorrow and our contentment.
"Can we understand why
the Negroes of Watts rebelled? Then why do we need a
devil-theory for the rebellion of the South Vietnamese? Can we understand the
oppression of Mississippi, or
the anguish that our Northern ghettoes makes epidemic? Then why can't we see
that our proper human struggle is not with Communism
or revolutionaries, but with
the social desparation that
drives good men to violence,
both here and abroad?
"Shall we graduates of the
liberal system work to procure a symmetry which is
impossible? Shall we diligently satisfy ourselves in
our jobs, homes, and cars by
ignoring the bankruptcy of
our society? The conditions
under which we do so are
impossible, even within our
immediate environment. The
more we "succeed" by successfully exploiting others,
the more we have to depersonalize ourselves in the business of selling ourselves and
buying others. And the question comes, finally, how shall
we deal with those that will
not be bought and sold? How
shall we contend with those
who are in revolt against our
way of life? How shall we
My answer must be:
through the authentic alienation of ourselves as human
beings. If we find that we
cannot attach ourselves to
any charter or institution, if
we find no values or commands to turn to which legitimize our conduct, then, as
Sartre says, "we have no excuse behind us, nor justification before us. We are
alone with no excuses." We
are, as he says, 'condemned
to be free."
We must educate ourselves
how to suffer that freedom. Tuesday, May 31, 1966

Ubyssey Focus Editor
In 1920 a letter-to-the-
editor declared: "The Ubyssey is a glorified gutter newspaper that has to resort to
catch headlines and sensational liners to draw interest."
In 1956 an irate professor
at Assumption College proclaimed for all Canada to
hear: "The Ubyssey is a vile
It is this endearing quality of consistency that has
inspired the loyalty of UBC
students over, lo, these many
years. When all else changes,
when the campus is unrecognizable to grades, when coeds' skirts shift to alarming
degrees of depression and inflation, it is reassuring to
know that the despicable old
campus paper is still despicable.
The first Ubyssey was a
tabloid —• its layout similar
to the New York Times —
colorless and, on the whole,
dull to read. By the forties,
The Ubyssey was printing on
a full-size page and its appearance was less stodgy.
Today The Ubyssey is back
to tabloid format, but its layout is hardly that of the New
York Times. And the years
have been hard on the legion
of Ubyssey editors who have
graduated—often to become
Canada's best journalists.
One such editor was Ronald Grantham, who ran the
paper for year 1930-31. He
was suspended from classes.
The then president of the
University didn't appreciate
the advice of Grantham in
telling him how to conduct
negotiations for money with
the  provincial   government.
In 1951, editor Les Armour
(now a philosophy professor
in the U.S.) took on the student council — and won —
after being fired by the student council. Armour was
reinstated at a general meeting by students who loved
to read his racy paper.
Some of the papers have
gained national recognition.
As in 1956. While Marilyn
Bell was swimming the
strait, a part Ubyssey staffer
called Carol Gregory was
swimming the Library Lily
Pond. Her success — under
the guidance of football
coach Frank Gnup — was

It may have been the Year
of the Horse, but it will also
be remembered as the year for
rule by popular vote! It seemed there was a referendum to
decide everything but what
time to raise the flag. Will students march on National Students Day? AMS council, no!
Adhoc, yes! Referendum ....

Larry Kent's new movie premiere.

the students decided to forego
the opportunities of a rising

Valedictory: responsibility fester generation
Each generation of university students has traditionally
borne a label. Sometimes the
label has followed from the
period in history with which
they are associated: for example, we can point to the depression generation of the thirties
and the war generation of the
forties. Sometimes, however,
the label is derived from some
characteristic of the students
themselves. Those who graduated in the fifties were known
as the silent generation — we
who graduate in 1966 will be
characterized as products of
the decade of involvement and
concern. I believe that for
those of us graduating today
there is something to be
learned from an examination
of the nature of student activism of the sixties.
• • •
Student criticism and protest as such is nothing very
new. Students traditionally
have exhibited high spirits —
the racoon coat, goldfish swallowing, and the UBC Engineers immediately come to mind
as examples. At Oxford, a favorite student objective is to
find an archaic rule in the massive and ancient university
regulations with which to confound the school's administration. A student once protested
to the Oxford authorities that
according to the university
regulations he was entitled to
a tankard of ale before writing
his  examinations.  He  got his
ale — but he was fined 5s. for
failing to wear his sword at
dinner. This same energy has
always been channelled by students into criticism of the established order.
•    •    •
There is an important qualitative difference, however, between student activism of the
sixties and student protest in
the past. The most significant
thing about past student protest is that the high ideals
espoused have to a great extent not been realized in fact.
This is because in the past students spoke out more out of
frustration than in an honest
desire to be heard on issues
both sides of which they had
carefully weighed. It was
criticism in a vacuum without
any willingness to accept the
responsibility which should be
the foundation of the honest
In the past, the community
at large regarded student
shouts as merely collegiate
high spirits. It is true even today that student activism is
not entirely respectable —
many still identify the movement with the beard and the
sandal, and Al Capp refers to
the protesting students as
SWINE — but for the first
time the leaders of the community are vitally interested
in student views as an emerging and informed voice in a
plural society.

Student energies are being
channelled in a more responsible direction, and the student
activism of the sixties is of a
very different order from the
protest of the past.
But that is enough said
about yesterday and today. As
Winston Churchill once said,
"If we open a quarrel between
the past and the present, we
shall find that we have lost the
Some of us graduating today
will continue on to complete
our academic training, and
others will be leaving the university world. No matter
which path we pursue, it is our
duty to act as responsible
members of the community.
We live in an open society, a
society in which there is a
growing respect for the educated mind. If we choose, the
same sort of spirit that has
characterized our generation
as students can be demonstrated even after our academic careers are ended.
•   •   •
It is up to us to translate
high ideals into meaningful
service to the community. Our
generation of students has
been quite vocal concerning
its rights: rights carry with
them responsibilities, the burden of which we as graduating
students must now assume.
An American broadcaster
once closed a news program
with the following few lines,
and I offer them to you as the
graduating student's prayer:
"Give me the courage to
tackle those problems I
can do something about.
Give me the humility to
stay away from those I
can   do   nothing   about.
Give me the brains to
know  the  difference."

Eight UBC extramural
sports will not have budgets
in the 1966-67 academic year.
They are baseball, bowling,
cycling, fencing, golf, judo,
squash, and weightlifting.
No funds were alloted them
in the athletic budget announced in April.
Members of these teams
must provide funds themselves if they are to function
next year.
Athletic director R. J. "Bus"
Phillips says Men's Athletic
Committee decided to end allotments to the minor sports
because of a shortage of funds.
"Costs of our major extramural sports are rising, and
there has been no appreciable
increase in enrolment, so we're
short of money," Phillips said.
He said the sports without
grants will be treated the same
as others. This means they are
still eligible for awards and
will receive assistance in publicity from the athletic office.
And, said Phillips, if extra
money becomes available during the school year, the eight
teams may apply for supplementary grants.
Phillips said most of the
sports will be able to continue
as before.
"They have strong club organizations out of which the
extramural teams grow," he
'Judo, squash, and fencing,
for example, are well organized and intend to carry on.
Of course, no one's very happy
about having the funds cut
Other sports which depend
on travelling to find competition, will probably have to die
for lack of funds. One of these
is baseball.
Buzz Moore, business manager for athletics, says simultaneous increases in grants to
major sports like football and
basketball are necessary to
cover higher travel costs.
"We found we hadn't been
allowing enough for meals and
accommodation,"  he said.

New sports stadium: late, but good as ever.
Notable case
of time warp
Ubyssey Sports Editor
Remember the new Thunderbird Sports Stadium?
It was to be built at the south end of the campus
near the Winter Sports Centre and Wolfson Field.
Football, soccer, and rugby were to use the playing surface, and track meets were to be run on
an all-weather asphalt track. And it was to be
ready for use by all those teams by the fall of
Sports fans have been waiting eagerly for it.
Throughout the academic year 1966-67, everyone
can continue to do just that, because the ready-date
for the stadium has been moved to the fall of '67.
An information service spokesman told Ubyssey
Sports recently that to his knowledge the stadium
was never scheduled for use before fall 1967.
But his knowledge is faulty. The Ubyssey and
downtown newspapers carried stories in September 1964 announcing the stadium would be ready
in two years — by 1966. Presumably, all these
papers wrote their stories from press releases supplied by UBC's information service.
In retrospect, administration reasoning seems to
have followed a course something like this:
• The Student Union Building to be constructed
on the present stadium site began to sink in a
morass of rising costs and student antipathy.
• With SUB's construction a question mark, the
the old stadium remains adequate and is in no immediate danger.
• So why spend money on the new stadium?
Two weeks ago, tenders were at last called for
the stadium. Starting innocently from the announcement was the new completion date, unexplained.
Our question is this: why did the administration
back and fill about the delay? Why try to pretend
student second-thoughts on SUB didn't hold up
the stadium?
And why label coaches and officials of the
athletic department misinformed and worse because they happen to remember the original plans?
