Students blast
arts dean's plan
The UBC senate voted to table
the question of student
representation on faculty committees Wednesday night after
marathon debate punctuated at
time by booing from the audience.
The discussion began smoothly
as the meeting quickly passed
quotas for student representation
in two faculties: three students or
six per cent of voting members in
agriculture and 16 students or nine
per cent in applied science.
But the meeting bogged down on
a recommendation from arts dean
Doug Kenny that his faculty's
students receive only 23
representatives or one for every
department and school in the
faculty.
Students, senators and arts
undergraduate society members in
the audience objected to this as
inadequate and eventually backed
a motion by English professor Ian
Ross to refer the recommendation
back to the faculty for further
discussion.
Both Kenny and classics head
Malcom MacGregor opposed
Ross's motion. "It's futile to refer
this motion, recommendation
back," said MacGregor. "It was
vigorously debated (in the faculty
meeting) and unanimously
passed."
The motion to refer was
defeated.
However, student senator Svend
Robinson then cited other complaints with Kenny's recommendation, and asked him why no
provision was made for including
first and second year students.
"We considered it and rejected
it," said Kenny.
Robinson told Kenny his answer
wasn't sufficient since senate had
told    the    faculties    to    have
representation for first year
students where ever possible.
"Other faculties found it
possible, why didn't arts?" he
asked.
Kenny didn't directly answer but
said the arts faculty had given
students the opportunity to discuss
representation and they had withdrawn so they didn't have much
reason to complain in senate.
Several interested arts students
who were present at the meeting
booed and hissed when a motion
was finally introduced to table
Kenny's recommendation until the
next senate meeting.
President Walter Gage, the
chairman of senate, gave no indication whether the arts dispute
will be brought up again at the
special Nov. 28 senate on the
universities act, or whether it will
be held until the regular December
meeting.
A wild debate erupted about
whether one of the campus
theological colleges should be
allowed direct affiliation with the
university.
Regent College, which claims to
be inter-denominational applied to
senate for affiliation with  UBC,
similar to that of the Vancouver
School of Theology.
Registrar Jack Parnell objected
saying he didn't see how Regent
College or any of the theological
colleges have any relation to the
university since the university has
its own faculty of religious studies.
History professor John Norris
also opposed affiliation saying
Regent by its inter-denominational
nature does not have a recognized
constituency of governing churches as do other theological
schools.
Norris also challenged whether
the school is a member in good
standing of the American
Association of Theological Schools
— another requisite of senate
approval of affiliation.
Norris said if senate recognized
Regent College: "We would be
opening the gate to a horde of
applicants because criteria of
acceptance would be so
broadened."
Rev. J.P. Martin, principal of
VST, disagreed. He said the
theological colleges provide a
function to the university because
over 50 per cent of the people using
the VST library are UBC students

RIDING ABILITY CITED
Royal wedding
consummated
By PRUDENCE RAMSBOTTOM
Ubyssey Society Reporter
LONDON (UNS) — The royal wedding here was consummated in
pomp and circumstance beyond the royal family's control late Wednesday night.
"Anne and I had intended to have a little talk," one attendant
claimed to have overheard the queen mutter to Prince Philip during the
wedding ceremony.
But the event took place as scheduled, little talk or no, late Wednesday night in a centuries old, gold inlaid chamber in a rear wing of
Buckingham Palace.
"She may be horsey but she's a great lay," a beaming Capt. Mark
Phillips told newsmen outside the chamber window. "Obviously, all that
riding wasn't wasted."
"Besides," Phillips said, "I haven't had it in weeks."
Enterprising reporters claimed to have discovered the Princess
Anne's first nighter wedding gown hanging on a hook in one of the royal
bathrooms, sparking speculation that the princess may actually have
known more than her mother thought.
The awesome gown of black sheer silk was embroidered in the
appropriate places, with family crests done in silk from crown colony
Hong Kong, the reporter claimed.
Although the press was not admitted to the actual event, Phillips
filled them in ex posto facto from the chamber window, turning to smile
fondly inside at the giggles and strains of Rule Britannica — apparently
sung by the princess herself.
There is increased speculation over what time the couple will
eventually leave the chamber. Some say they are attempting to live up
to a centuries-old English tradition which states the bride must not
leave the wedding chamber for three days. The tradition does not
mention the groom, but Phillips "likes to keep a hand in," palace
sources said.
only recently partly through his
own popularity and partly through
the attrition of several other
candidates.
When Gage, 68, announced last
May he would retire in 1975 it
appeared that then commerce
dean Philip White and University
of Calgary president Freddy
Carrothers were the front running
candidates to replace him.
But White, a tough, efficient
administrator, lost stature with his
sudden resignation to take a
European posting with the
Bronfman organizations soon after
Gage's announcement.
And Carrothers, a popular
alumnus is apparently no longer
available, having taken on science
research job with the federal
government.
The committee is currently
considering 105 applications but
almost 80 per cent are Americans
— most from minor colleges and
industry — and an American UBC
president is totally unthinkable,
say committee sources.
A generally lacklustre group of
non-UBC applicants has narrowed
the main field to either current or
recent UBC professors or administrators.
In this group Armstrong is the
strongest candidate partly from
his popularity, his tenure — he's
been at UBC since 1946 — and the
fact he has followed in Gage's
footsteps, being promoted up the
acting and deputy president ladder
behind him.
"At the moment the committee
seems strongly biased in his
favor," one source told The
Ubyssey.
Other candidates are:
Walter Young, former UBC
political science head, now
University of Victoria political
science head. Young's New
Democratic Party connections
(former   provincial   executive
ARMSTRONG .. .
moving up
member) would be an asset were it
not for the fact that he is from the
academic (i.e. anti-Barrett) wing
of the party and supported Tom
Berger over Dave Barrett for the
party leadership;
Economics professor John
Young, a former arts dean, and
more important, former head of
the prices and incomes commission. Weak.
His disadvantage is his connections, however tenuous, to the
Liberal party;
Arts dean Doug <enny. Although
being seriously ] ushed by some
committee mei ibers Kenny's
candidacy has to be a joke, given
his unpopularity y th arts students
as a result of te: ure and student
representation di iputes;
Applied science dean Liam Finn.
One source told ' 'he Ubyssey that
Finn, 40, is a definite candidate and
is being plumped for the job by
some board of governors members. But a quickie poll outside a
recent senate  meeting  indicated
many people are turned off by
Finn's relatively colorful lifestyle;
Science dean George Volkoff.
Volkoff has only held his post for a
little over a year and as well he
hasn't yet indicated whether he
will accept his nomination, submitted Thursday. As a member of
the selection committee he would
have to resign from the committee
if he allows his name to stand.
According to some committee
sources almost every other dean,
administrator and campus heavy
has had his name bandied around
at one time or another.
But there are a number of new
deans and few have the experience
of Armstrong. Because the
university probably cannot repeat
the great public relations victory of
electing a super-teacher, Gage, it
is plausible they will opt for an
administrator, sources say.
Armstrong, however, is far from
confirmed. Of the 105 applicants,
fewer than half have been rejected
and as one committee member
said: "There are still some real
goons on the list."
As well, applications are still
trickling in and a knight in shining
armor from the East is still a
possibility.
A battle is brewing in the committee over secrecy, though as one
committee member says,
fireworks won't start until the
serious paring of names begins this
spring.
Some student and faculty
members would like to release a
list of about a dozen names in the
spring in order to promote
discussion and allow candidates to
be more carefully scrutinized by
the public.
"But we have to be careful about
violating secrecy since if we get too
public, the heavies will merely opt
out of the committee and choose
the president in some back room/'
one source said. Page 2

Red baiting seen
From page 1
and the colleges provide residence
for a sizable number of UBC
students as well.
The debate became more heated
when Cominco president Gerald
Hobbs, appointed to senate by the
former Social Credit government
said: "The men involved are undoubted scholars and their
credentials beyond reproach. I feel
failure to grant accreditation
would be an obvious attempt by
senate to be anti-religious."
Shouts   of   "nonsense"    and
"rubbish" greeted Hobbs' remark.
At this point chemical
engineering professor Norman
Epstein rose reacting to Hobbs'
remarks
Epstein asked: "What if the
followers of Guru Maharj-Ji
wanted to affiliate?"
Or "what if the Communist
Party of Canada (Marxist-
Leninist) wanted to affiliate? They
are a type of religion in a sense.
They have a prophet — Mao — in
their leader Hardial Bains  thye
have a disciple and they could
certainly make a good case yet we
wouldn't seriously hold the matter
under the same criteria as we are
here."
Student senator Valerie Embree
charged Epstein with "redbaiting" but Epstein later said his
remarks were meant to be the
exact opposite, though he said he
didn't think the CPC (M-L) was
"red in the liberating sense of the
word".
Despite the furor against the
motion, it passed easily.
Cricks out, high signs fixed
By JAKE van der KAMP
Something is finally being done
about the street and building signs
around UBC which force people to'
ruin their neck muscles trying to
read them.
The campus graphics committee, formed last year to investigate reaction to the signs, will
release the results of its studies in
January.
Committee member Richard
Seaton, also a member of UBC's
academic planning department,
told The Ubyssey Wednesday he
would not be surprised if the report
was critical of the signs.
"The report will probably
substantiate the initial allegations
that the graphic system is not
working well," he said.
Seaton refused to comment
further saying he did not want to
release any details of the report
until it was in the president's
hands.
1,600 open
Pit Tuesday
The impromptu opening of the
new Pit Tuesday night attracted
more than 1,600 persons, some of
whom got off to an early vandalism
start and ruined two tables.
Pit manager Alex Sawiski said
he was forced to remove the tables
from the Pit because they were
"unacceptably defaced".
SUB building manager Graeme
Vance said the table surfaces had
drawings of penises and words like
'cocksucker' etched into table tops
with knifemarks which "aren't the
kind of thing I'd like my mother to
see."
Sawiski said future defaced
tables "will be removed and not
replaced. They'll (the students) be
sitting on the floor. If they're not
going to behave proper there's no
way I'm going to replace the
tables," he said.
Vance said money to replace the
$90 solid mahogany tables comes
out of funds "which may not be
available until next year. Until the
funds are approved we'll just have
to go with fewer tables.
The dispute centres around those
signs on campus which run vertically rather than horizontally, the
brain-child of a genius sign design
team. Members of the university
community have complained of the
difficulty in reading the signs
because of their awkward
placement.
The signs were designed by Paul
Arthur, who also created graphics
for the Expo 67 world fair in
Montreal.
Information services head Arnie
Myers said a complete system had
originally been designed for im
plementation over a five year
period, but it was never completely
installed.
Objections were raised about the
signs and as a result the campus
graphics committee was formed to
investigate the complaints, he
said.
Ray Corteen, another member of
the committee, said he had done a
report for the committee and found
the signs were inefficient.
However, he said, the committee
was only formed to do a study on
the signs and would not make any
recommendations in their report.

Brave new control — Skinner
By RYON GUEDES
"You can't change people's
minds but you can change the
world in which they live."
This was controversial behavior
psychologist B. F. Skinner's
nutshell summary of the principles
behind behavior science given at a
press conference at the UBC
faculty club Wednesday. Skinner,
the most well-known figure in
behavioral science, is at UBC to
deliver a lecture today, consisting
of an excerpt from his latest book.
His talk is sponsored by the science
faculty.
"I am a radical behaviorist,"
said Skinner. "Perhaps the most
radical.
"We in behavioral psychology
view as the obstacle to our
. progress that awful preoccupation
with what one feels, one observes
looking at oneself introspectively,"
Skinner said.
"We view the rest of what used to
be called psychology as a
digression from the science of
behavior," he said. "It is still very
concerned with what we feel about
things, feelings we have before we
express them in behavior.
"The main thing is what a person
does, why he does it. 'Why' is the
question of looking at the situation,
what has happened to him in the
past, and his genetic endowment,"
Skinner said.
"Eventually behavior science
will be able to account for what
people do, predict and control by
looking at what we are as a
species, how each of us is changed
by his personal history, and
people's reactions to a given
situation.
"The kind of radical
behaviorism I'm interested in is
already producing practical
results," he said. "Including
contingency management in the
classroom, behavior therapy,
t these are all things coming out of
it.
"T. am definitely opposed to ideas
of education that came from
considerations of the mind and
ideas in psychotherapy on how
oeople feel about things. This
whole venture is to find an alternative to an emphasis on what is
going on inside, and to look at what
is going on outside.
"A big step forward will be to
find out how what is  happening
*       outside can be changed."
Asked if his own views on
behavior had changed during his 40
years in psychology, Skinner said
he had gradually changed his
views in the direction of progress
and a more subtle analysis.
"I have never supported
stimulus-response psychology," he
said, "I don't believe behavior is a
response to stimulus. That was a
4 very early development going back
to the reflex and conditioned
reflex.
"The stimulus in a reflex, like
the pupil contracting when exposed
to strong light and the dog
salivating when the bell rings,
these are forced actions, which
have to do with the internal
economy of the organism.
"But in relation to the world
around me," he said, using the
press conference as an example.
"What I am doing now is not
responding to you. The fact you are
here may alter the probability of
what I may say, but is not forcing
me to say anything or triggering
responses. Stimulus in the modern
analysis of behavior does not elicit
behavior, it simply alters the
probability you will do
something."
Skinner told newsmen he did not
understand why all his books have
had such a critical reception.
"A Time magazine article on my
book Beyond Freedom and Dignity
had as a title 'Dr. Skinner says we
can't afford freedom.' That isn't
what I said at all. But what we
mean by freedom in that case is
freedom from certain kinds of
control. This does not mean we are
controlled when freed from that
kind of thing.
"I want to get away from
punitive control as much as
possible, and I think I've done
more than anyone I can think of to
suggest alternatives to punishment
or the threat of punishment.
"I've written a book on education
about what can be used instead.
"I don't mean corporal, I mean
threat of failure, sending reports to
the parents, or sending the student
to talk to school principals. I want
people to be free of coercion, of the
blandishments of big rewards and
what they are based on, and from
deprivations.
"In the 19th century, it was
assumed you had to have a hungry
labor force to keep people in factories because nobody would work
there unless they were starving. I
insist education is as much a
matter of good control as bad.
"I want to see changes made not
getting rid of the control, but
changing it into the kind of control
that leaves you to do things and
feel free, to maximize your own
contribution."
When asked who would decide
the ethics of control, Skinner said
the mistake in dealing with the
question was asking for a single
person to decide.
"What you want is a culture in
which certain kinds of control
simply cannot be used," he said.
"The Magna Carta was a change
which limited the use of control
used by the people with power. The
American constitution and bill of
rights were restrictions on the use
of certain kinds of control.
"We don't allow people to use
brute force to control others, and
we shouldn't allow them  to use
other kinds of control, but we do
because the very notion misleads
us."
Skinner used as an example the
recent   practice   in   the   eastern
American states of holding state
lotteries   as   an   alternative   to
raising taxes.
"Taxes are punitive — you pay
—marise savaria photo

Marine Drive. Pole is small part of simulated village in the park,

which once covered UBC and University Endowment Lands.
or else," he said. "Lotteries are
supposedly voluntary. You can buy
a ticket or not buy a ticket. If you
believe that, then you think you're
not being forced to contribute to
the government. But lotteries work
on a particular schedule of reinforcements, and they are just as
effective as the threat of punishment if you don't pay taxes."
Skinner cited the management of
institutionalized psychotics as a
good starting ground for positive
reinforcement programs. This had
been done, he said, with token
economies in psychotic wards.
"You can give people positive
reasons for doing things and they
begin to take an interest in life, and
then they take care of themselves
where they weren't doing it
before," he said. "The regular
practice is punitive."
"There are principles we are
working on which are relevant to
all these problems," Skinner said.
"When you take over an area with
some knowledge of behavioral
principles such as scheduling and
reinforcements you can make
extraordinary changes."
Robinson
blasts
Bremer
Student senator Svend Robinson,
a member of education commissioner John Bremer's special
advisory board, said Wednesday
he believes Bremer should be
dismissed unless he becomes less
conservative and reactionary.
However, Robinson said, he
wasn't asking for Bremer's immediate resignation. "I'm not so
much irritated with Bremer as
with his working paper," he said.
Robinson said the paper,
released Nov. 5, excluded students
from the board of governors.
He said also the report "didn't
look at the role of women and their
lack of participation in the
university's administration."
Robinson said he spoke during
debate at the provincial New
Democratic Party convention
Sunday. "My speech was inflammatory as I'm really angry
with the report," he said.
Robinson said he sponsored a
convention resolution criticising
the "reactionary report". He said
the resolution was overwhelmingly
approved by the membership.
"If in another paper, the paper
on college administration, we get
the same kind of proposals, we
should get rid of him (Bremer),"
said Robinson.

Waking up to new boss
Someday you will wake up and UBC will
have a new president.
If the powers that be have their way his
identity will be a complete surprise.
Today's front page article on the
activities of the committee to select the
successor to administration president Walter
Gage is part of The Ubyssey's little campaign
to make the veil of secrecy slightly more
transparent.
We haven't identified our sources because
they believe were their names known, some
of their fellow committee members might
start talking in whispers, passing
cryptically-coded notes and holding secret
meetings in the faculty club washroom.
But withholding their names is just a
temporary measure because there will be a
clash in the committee among those who
want an open discussion of presidential
candidates and those who want it done
behind closed doors.
We agree with those committee members
who have suggested that when most of the
turkeys are pared out of the applicants, a list
of 10 or 12 names should be released to the
public.
Presumably those people would then be
under public scrutiny; people would know
what alternatives they have and a general
discussion would ensue.
Some would say this is unfair to the poor
candidates who would be subjected to the
glare of publicity and might find everything
they said being taken down and used against
them.
Rubbish.
The president of the university is going to
be in the public eye in any case.
And if the university community doesn't
get to see the people being considered for
the president's job, they will feel even more
alienated from that position than they are
right now.
Because it is unlikely that the next
president will be the pubjic relations wizard
Walter Gage is, we'd suggest he'll need all the
goodwill he can get.
The committee should move to encourage
open debate on the people it is considering
for the job.
Or do they have, as one committee
member put it, such an incredible list of
goons that they are afraid to?

Letters
Touche
I have a high regard for your
paper which combines humor and
news in just the right proportions.
I have found exceptionally funny
your letters section, especially the
lake ones obviously written by you.
Hut why do you bother creating
letters like the one supposedly
written by Tom McNeney (The
Ubyssey, Nov. (i)?
The letter reminded me of an old
decrepit complaining about
everything and nothing ("to expect
a little more responsibility for that
kind of money...").
II you are so worried about
receiving enough money to publish
vour paper, why are vou printing
trash like that?
Not only that but you have the
audacity to suggest that it was
written by an AMS representative.
Are you implying that the students
of UBC have an idiot as their
representative?
Instead of complaining about
your low budget, why don't you use
a bit of initiative, i.e. recycling the
so-called "art" gallery, or advocating the amalgamation of the
two child care centres?
The cost of maintaining the
small "games" room in SUB must
be considerable and hardly worth
it considering that all most
students get from it is a
background of gurgling baby
noises. The money saved by both
these actions would, I'm sure,
allow you to print an extra two
pages in every issue.

Socialists
Stuart Russell, spokesman for
the Young Socialists and author of
a letter blasting the Alma Mater
Society and The Ubyssey for their
stand in the Georgia Straight
dispute, has shown ignorance of
the realities of newspaper
publishing.
Perhaps his ignorance in that
area can be excused. His ignorance
of political realities however shows
that he is unfit to lead a bridge
club, let alone a political
organization.
Russell persists in the delusion
that the publication Dan McLeod
attempted to dump on the  UBC
campus was a newspaper. While
flailing about with accusations that
I "did everything except speak of
the issues", Russell has revealed
his inability to address himself to
the point which I raised, and which
must be addressed if the concept of
"free speech" is to have any
meaning. The point is this: where
do you draw the line?
Russell implies, although he
nowhere states explicitly, that he
and the Young Socialists are opposed to the littering of the campus
with advertising flyers. In an age
when the capitalists of the
publishing industry resort to evermore-refined techniques such as
controlled-circulation publications
in order to make more money, just
exactly what is a newspaper and
what is not?
I have been under the impression
that the Young Socialists espouse
the principles of dialectical
materialism. If they do not I
commend it to them. A materialist
assessment of the situation leads
one to examine the economic base
of the publication at issue. And the
economic base of the publication
McLeod attempted to distribute is
precisely that of the Western
News, Vancouver Calendar,
Homemaker's Magazine, or the
countless other parasitic
publications which have as their
raison d'etre advertising, not information, and not the nebulous
"viewpoints" of which Russell
speaks.
The removal of the purchase
price effects a material change in
the nature of the publication. Sold
downtown, or for that matter on
campus, it is a newspaper, bought
for its information and/or opinion
content. Strewn about the campus,
it becomes a tool of advertisers,
who pay for the captive market.
Let me ask Russell directly: would
he argue for the "right" of any of
the above-named publications to do
as McLeod tried to do? I would not.
and for the same reason I have
argued that McLeod has no "right"
to do so.
As far as The Ubyssey being a
litter hazard is concerned, I would
say only that students have obviously decided (since they want
the paper to keep up its present
publishing schedule) that the
paper is worth that risk. However,
although Russell trumpets loudly
about the decision to ban dumping
of the Straight being "not a student
decision", the Young Socialists
have not exactly organized a mass
campaign to repeal the ban. We
must conclude that most students
are aware of what McLeod tried to
do, that the Young Socialists know
it, and that they have therefore
confined their activity to the letters
column.
Finally, my charges about the
political style of the Young
Socialists were not "red-herrings",
but were made specifically in the
context of Russell's claim to be a
defender of "democracy". Will
Russell deny that the tactics of the
YS and of its parent group, the
League for Socialist Action, are
basically to enter protest groups
(where they have not gotten in on
the ground floor by forming them),
organize their own caucus, bid for
control of the organization, and
split to form a new group if their
attempt is unsuccessful?
Will he deny that this was the
reason for the formation of the
Women's Liberation Alliance,
after the mainstream women's
liberation movement in Vancouver
and the rest of Canada got fed up
with this sort of tactic? Will he
deny that the LSA, upon failing to
persuade a group of anti-war
marchers in 1969 that anti-
imperialist content must be kept
out of the march slogans, split
from the main group and organized
its own march?
Will he deny that the
representative of the YS in the
Human Government coalition two
years  ago  at  UBC  was  utterly
unable to work within the coalition
structure, insisting on publishing
her own propaganda uncjer the
combined label of Human
Government and Young Socialists?
Will he deny that the LSA
members of the NDP women's
caucus have played a disruptive
role there since receiving a
directive from Eastern Canada
instructing them to halt their
support of proposals for a women's
ministry in the provincial
government?
I doubt that he will. I doubt that
he can. I doubt that he can do
anything except mumble the
tawdry insinuation that I have
some affinity with the university
administration, or whine that
because one attacks the Young
Socialists one is necessarily a
"red-baiter". I doubt it, because he
is locked into a sectarian style
which has been an obstacle, for
generations, at UBC as elsewhere,
to creative socialist politics.

Mistake
After having read the article
where AMS treasurer John Wilson,
made a mistake in the budget to
the tune of $1,400, I have come to
the conclusion that the students
should know more about the inept
government president Brian
Loomes is running.
First, I do not see where Loomes
can get off screaming about the
capitalist rip-off of students while

he sits back knowing that through a
breach of contract he acquired
$2,000 of student money through an
illegal honorarium. (Honorariums
are illegal because the student
council does not have the power to
grant them.) The reason I say
breach of contract is because the
"president" was supposedly under
the obligation to be in his office for
eight hours a day during the
summer months. Loomes did not
do this. He came in, at the outside,
possibly twice a week for a couple
of hours and this was probably out
of guilt.
Now the question arises what did
Loomes do with his time? Loomes
had another job, as mentioned by
Bob Angus, feeding reindeer
somewhere on campus. Maybe
students should cry wolf on
Loomes the way he cries wolf on
capitalism.
Loomes and the rip-off does not
stop here. Loomes is supposed to
be running the student end of the
administration, which through
some knowledge, can take up a
considerable amount of time.
Along with the job of "president",
Loomes has to be a student and I »
fail to see where he has the time to
hold a part-time job feeding
reindeer somewhere on campus.
To add insult to injury, there is
another member of the student
government, a Ms. Lindsay, who
was given an illegal honorarium
for services during the summer.
She also did not fulfil her
obligations, feeling her other job
too important made very rare
appearances all summer, for an *
average of less than once a week.
Now to get back to the loss of
$1,400 through a mustake by
treasurer Wilson. I'll agree
everyone is entitled to a mustake,
but why cut funds from student
activities to cover losses; i.e. intramurals. Why should students
pay for the blundering of the AMS *
hierarchy!
I believe that it would not be
wrong to demand that the $1,400
loss be covered by Loomes and
Lindsay. I call on the student
council to take the appropriate
action against Loomes and Lindsay, with a possible date in student
court. ^

Red jackets break council
endowment lands debate
An otherwise boring Alma Mater
Society council meeting Wednesday night was enlivened by a
group of engineers who sprayed
the council chambers with water.
The interruption occurred while
council was receiving a presen-
Wagg
elected
GSA prez
Heather Wagg, the graduate
student association secretary, has
been appointed GSA president
replacing Paul Knox.
The GSA was forced to rescind
its appointment of Knox, an
executive appointed GSA vice-
president, because of a
technicality over representation on
the Alma Mater Society student
council. The AMS constitution
requires all council representatives to be elected.
The presidential vacancy was
created by the resignation of Jim
Bledsoe several weeks ago.
Wagg was elected secretary thus
qualifying to sit on council even
though she was appointed as GSA
president.
Replacing her is AMS grad rep
Greg Orydall who resigned his
position to allow time for his
secretarial duties.
Nominations close Nov. 26 for the
Dec. 3 elections to fill the two
council seats vacated by Oryall
and Bob Angus, who announced his
resignation earlier this month.
tation by representatives of the
Dunbar-West Point Grey steering
committee proposing the
University Endowment Lands be
kept in their present state.
Committee representative Bowie
Keefer told council he considers it
essential to keep the area as it now
is and not have it developed for
housing.
"We feel very strongly about the
endowment lands," he said. "It
compares favorably with Stanley
Park and is the only region aside
from it which has trees and is in a
natural state.
He urged council to form some
plan of action because the
government is going ahead with
using the area for housing.
Council decided to withhold any
support until it saw the results of
the referendum on the land
Wednesday.
In other business, council voted
to severely "shit" on- the
engineering undergraduate society
for its horrendous exam timetable
stunt of Tuesday.
The motion came partly as a
reaction to the soaking which
councillors received at the hands of
the red-jacketed engineers.
Five fire extinguishers were
used during the stunt. Ten seconds
of heavy spraying were enough to
ensure that everyone in the
chambers was good and wet.
Internal affairs officer Doug
Brock hid under a table and didn't
get wet. Law rep Gordon Turriff
and Ubyssey co-editor Vaughn
Palmer hid between curtains and
remained dry. AMS vice-president
Gordon Blankstein hid in a closet.

Twin wins J
exhibition   *
basketball
By RALPH MAURER
The UBC Thunderbirds took a
pair of exhibition games from the
Victoria Scorpions Friday and
Saturday night at the War
Memorial gym.
The games were punctuated by
sloppy play, many personal fouls
by both teams, and six technical
fouls by the Scorpions. Five of
these came in Friday's game and
resulted in the expulsion of
playing-coach Bob Burrows from
the game.
"This sort of thing seems to
happen every time we play a senior
A team," said Bird coach Peter
Mullins after Friday's debacle.
The outburst of childish temper
was the result of some uneven
officiating by the referees, but
Burrows had the honesty to admit
that the referees "weren't a factor" in "his team's poor performance. "We just suffered a
letdown," he said of the team that
had downed Simon Fraser last
week.
Mullins conceded the referees
weren't perfect. "They have to
know four sets of rules this year,"
he pointed out. "If they (the
Scorpions) had trouble with the
officiating, that's their problem."
Friday's game was a dull affair,
the Birds led almost from the start.
The Scorpions did get close on
occasions but UBC would pour it on
and eventually won by a 15 point
margin. They were led by Darryl
Gjernes with 22 points and Mike
MacKay who scored 23 points and
grabbled 20 rebounds. Don Burrows
contributed 21 points to a losing
cause before his ejection from the
contest.
Although outrebounded and
outshot, it was UBC's accuracy
from the floor which gave the
convincing win. They shot 45 per
cent from the field compared with
.   36 per cent for the Scorpions.
The Scorpions were ready for the
Birds Saturday night, however, as
*     they were joined by three regulars
who had not dressed  the night
before.
Fast breaks and close checking
kept the Birds off balance when the
visitors had a 10-point lead at the
half.
"We couldn't buy a basket in the
first half," said Mullins later. "It
was horrible." MacKay, who sat on
the tench most of the first half
after being stuffed twice in suc-
4 cession by his nine-inch shorter
check., scored only 4 points in that
half. "While we held MacKay, we
did all right. I knew that's what we
had to do," said Burrows.
But that game plan fell apart as
MacKay came in and scored 16
points in the second half to lead the
Bird comeback. Down by 13 points
^ midway through the half, the Birds
put together a string of 16 unanswered points to take the lead for
good. The final score was 87-79.
"I knew I could rest MacKay in
the first half because I was confident we could always beat them,"
said Mullins, "but for a while the
issue was in doubt."
Although being outscored from
0   the field, the Birds were able to
take advantage of fouls to outscore
the   Scorpions   23-5   from   the
freethrow line and win the game.
BILL ENNOS SCORES the winning goal in Friday's game. The UBC
hockey team won the first but lost the second, which was luckily an
exhibition game. Hapless Alberta goalie is Craig Gunther who scored
earlier  on   his own net. Next game

Alberta goalie scores for Birds
By ALAN DOREE
and PETER LEIBIK
Craig Gunther's goal for the
Thunderbirds surprised everyone
because he plays hockey for the
University of Alberta Golden
Bears.
It happened early in the third
period in UBC's 6-2 win Friday
night at the Winter Sports Centre.
Bird left winger Rich Longpre
fired wide and it came out front off
the end boards. Gunther, Alberta's
goalie, tried to stop the rebound
with his stick but deflected it into
his net.
That made it 5-2 UBC and, "It
rattled him," said Bird coach Bob
Hindmarch. Centre Bob Sperling
made it 6-2 just 29 seconds later
and UBC easily held off the Bears
from then on.
The Bear netminder stopped a
close range backhand from centre
Yoshio Hoshino in the second
period, then frustrated right
winger Chuck Carignan twice on
his doorstep. Later,  he  blocked
Longpre on a breakaway.
UBC started slowly and Hindmarch felt neither team skated as
well as they could.
Bird centre Bill Ennos tied it 1-1
on a fine effort in the first frame,
stealing the puck in his own end
and went all the way to score.
Carignan scored to put UBC ahead.
Ennos made it 3-2 late in the
second,-after Oliver Morris got his
second Alberta goal, flicking a
rebound between Gunther's pads.
Later Jim Lawrence got the draw
to Longpre, who scored- from a
scramble in front.
Alberta coach Clare Drake said,
"Both teams were ragged, but,
UBC really went after us. They
played well, finished their checks,
were sharper around the net.
Mentally and physically they
seemed to want to play more than
we did."
In Saturday night's exhibition
game a glittering Golden Bears
team   came   back   to   beat   the
Thunderbirds, 5-3.
UBC goalies Fred Masuch and
Ron Lefebvre kicked out as much
oncoming rubber "as they could but
UBC's defence had trouble
clearing   the   puck   against   the
Bear's tenacious forechecking.
This pressure led to Alberta's well-
earned goals. Their final goal
came on an empty net as the Birds
pulled Lefebvre in a last minute
attempt to gain a tie.

Bookstore sale 'a success'
By BEN GELFANT
The opening day of the UBC
bookstore's discount book sale has
been termed a great success by
bookstore manager Bob Smith.
Smith said this sale will be more
successful than last year's because
word of mouth has done a good
public relations job for the store.
"We just finished packing up
$500 worth of books for a librarian
from Castlegar. All the libraries
have sent buyers to look for
bargains," he said.
Smith said the nature of the sale
has changed slightly, from the
simple overload and dead stock
nature of last year's sale.
"We had a buyer in Toronto
during the summer looking for
favorable prices on saleable
books," he said.
Smith said he believes the
bookstore is not taking business
away from other stores. In fact, he
said, the Simon Fraser University
Registrar
says gears
fake skeds
Students who clustered around
preliminary exam timetables
early Tuesday morning were
duped by an anonymous hoax, the
registrar's office confirmed
Wednesday.
The "timetables" were printed
and posted in the same manner as
the authentic schedules. However
the number of clashes seemed to
reveal their true nature. Many
science students were scheduled
for three exams at once. Some
were supposed to write at 8:30 a.m.
on Sundays.
Although there were rumors of
the hoax being the plot of the
engineering undergraduate
society, it denied any knowledge of
the affair.
"Were those fake?" and "No, we
don't know anything about it." was
the EUS reply. The engineers took
pains to make their position
"perfectly clear".
"There is a new policy in the
EUS. We don't play that sort of
childish prank anymore," said
spokesmen over chuckles in the
background.
Patrick Hui, spokesman for the
registrar's office timetable service, said he suspects the prank
was the work of the engineers. "We
think the engineers did it," he said.
The real timetables should be out
next week.
bookstore was buying books during
the day. The sale is being used to
provide a service, he said.
Unfortunately, he said the space
now being used will not be
available next year.  It is being
given  to psychology studies,  he
said.
The sale is restricted to faculty
members, students, alumni and
staff until Saturday. From next
Monday until it ends Dec. 1, it will
be open to the public.
The sale is being held in Brock
Hall and is open from 9 a.m. to 5
p.m. until Saturday. From Monday
until Dec. 1 the hours will be 9 a.m.
to 9 p.m.
Geography prof says city
changing its weather pattern
By JANICE McEWEN
Vancouver's weather pattern is
changing.
Timothy Oke, a climatologist in
the geography department, says
Vancouver is exerting a marked
effect on its thermal environment.
"The main changes taking place
are decreased fog due to a change
in the general nature of pollutants
and increased temperatures," Oke
said in an interview.
Over the past 30 years Vancouver has had a significant drop
in the number of days of fog each
year. In 1943, 104 days of fog were
recorded, 50 days in 1960 and only
20 days in 1971.
Oke attributes the drop to a
decrease in large carbon particles
in the atmosphere.
"From the 1920s to the '50s
Vancouver burnt a great deal of
• wood, coal and sawdust," he says.
"Dank fogs were the result of the
large particles in the air. Now the
tee-pee burners (which burn
sawdust and wood) have been
banned and oil and natural gas
have replaced coal and sawdust
burning."
Oke says the gases from
automobiles are too small to form
fog particles, but they can react
with sunlight and cause the Los
Angeles variety of smog.
Vancouver has a cloud cover
which blocks out a great deal of
sunlight and prevents an undesirable chemical effect. (This
doesn't mean there isn't a pollution
problem in Vancouver.) As yet
Vancouver's pollution is not as
great as Los Angeles'.
Cities change climates, Oke
says. "Vancouver also effects the
temperature.
"This is called an urban heat
island and has a direct warming
effect on the city. For example,
Ladner as a representative of the
rural environment, is cooler than
Vancouver."
Urban climatology has been
seriously studied over the past 20
years but public interest has only
increased in the last five years.
This is due to the fact that the
public has recently become more
aware of his role in effecting the
environment.
"Engineers don't take the
climate into consideration when
constructing a building," says Oke.
"An example of this is the wind
tunnel at the corner of Georgia and
Granville.
"Canada should be able to take a
lead and plan cities sensibly.
Planners must take the thermal
atmosphere  into   consideration."
