But athletic fee
transfer endorsed
Twenty per cent of UBC students turned out Tuesday
to reject emphatically a $2 AMS fee raise.
The vote was 1,830 to 1,362
IT'S BEEN A GREAT YEAR for referenda and elections, says pretty Laura West, education I,
as she punches another hole in Joe Student's student card. There have been five referenda and two elections so far this year. Vote Tuesday was on athletic fee transfer and
AMS fee raise.
Campbell resigns—again
Acting returning officer
Chuck Campbell has resigned
over a polling booth dispute
with council.
The dispute arose when AMS
first vice-president Charlie
Boylan moved that council
direct the returning officer to
place additional polls at the
Ponderosa, Physics building
and north Brock, bringing the
total number of polls to nine.
There was concern among
the councillors that the necessary quorum would not be received for the athletic fee and
AMS fee increase referenda.
Campbell said that the placing of polling (booths was at
the discretion of the returning  officer.
"This   is   a  very dangerous
motion," Campbell said. "You
will be setting a very bad precedent."

against raising the $29 activities fee to $31.
The other referendum, to
turn responsibility for $5 AMS
athletic fee over to UBC's administration was overwhelmingly approved 2,476 to 694.
The fee referendum needed
a 20 percent turnout and a
two-thirds majority.
The athletic fee referendum
was merely an opinion vote,
AMS treasurer-elect Lome
Hudson said Tuesday.
Hulson said the favorable
result would give council
authority to negotiate with
the administration the transfer of the $5 fee.
'We'll talk with them during
the   summer,"   Hudson   said.
He said that another referendum would be brought before the students next year to
reduce the AMS fee when the
athletics money is transferred.
He said he hoped the change
would be in effect for the
1967-68 year.
Hudson, although disappointed at the results of the
fee raise vote, denied rumors
he would resien if the increase
did not go through.
"I have no intention of resigning," he said. "I haven't
even heard the rumor."
Hudson said the "no" vote
would mean no expansion of
the AMS program next year.
"The scrapping of Totem
will give us about $4,000, but
we'll lose $3,000 from the med
students not paying AMS fees
next year."
"And we won't have the
$15,000 interest from SUB
funds next year either," he
"We're just going to have to
tighten our belts."
Hudson said he had many
projects for extending AMS
programs to reach every student.
"But with limited funds I
won't be able to do anything,"
Hudson said.
He said he did not know
when another referendum to
raise the fee would be held.
"I know I won't support another referendum," he said.
Hudson said when the athletic fee is transferred to the
administration, the AMS could
lower its $29 fee by only two
or three dollars instead of the
full $5.
AMS offers monetary aid
to chancellor candidates
AMS council overwhelmingly approved a motion pro-
vidiing a fund of $100 for chancellorship election expenses
Monday night.
The fund will be apportioned to the two candidates by
AMS treasurer-elect Lome Hudson on receipt of their campaign expenditure statements.
The two candidates for this year's chancellorship
are buisness executive John M. Buchanan, and grad student
Randy K. Enomoto. Page 2

Counting angels
Monday, council measured the lip service it would
pay to democracy by counting the number of votes cast
at various polls in past referenda.
It decided the Ponderosa was about the limit, and
where there were fewer voters, there would be no poll.
It's as if, in a federal election, the Liberal party
decided not enough people in the Yukon voted, and so
decided to have no polls there.
But the returning officer in Tuesday's refetrendum,
Chuck Campbell, wanted even fewer polls than the
councillors. He claimed all which could be maimed would
be up, and to place more at council's whim would be
placing them where council was sure of yes votes.
When council ordered extra polls Campbell said he
would resign immediately after the referendum.
What was ignored as an essential point of democracy
— everybody has equal opportunity to exercise his
You either place polls where everyone can get at
them, which means the full 18 used for council elections,
or you place one poll where everybody can get at it
with about equal difficulty.
We don't care which, but the precise measuring of
how much lip service to pay to motherhood democracy
is a bit like counting angels on a pin head.
All the answers are wrong.
On to October!
The smashing defeat of the AMS's attempt at a
$2 activity fee hike should give new AMS president Peter
Braund and his merry men the required kick in the
head to set them straight on fiscal matters.
As we pointed out earlier, the $2 fee hike could solve
nothing. All it was was a temporary stop-gap method
to avoid the desperately needed re-thinking of the financial crisis resulting from the Great union building
Four minutes of rational thought could have convinced the new AMS excutive that this campus isn't
going to approve any kind of a fee hike.
Especially not when more than half of their AMS
fee is now drained off to build the proposed Brasilia-
in-the-ballpark — the over-elaborate, ill-planned, useless
playpen slated to go up on the stadium site while the
AMS program goes down the tube.
For hard-working AMS treasurer Lome Hudson's
statements about "tightening belts" and "undergraduate
societies feeling the pinch", as a result of the defeat of the
fee hike, are ridiculous.
What is needed is a complete re-evaluation of the
SUB project — including financing arrangements. The
AMS is currently negotiating with the board of governors for an extension of the railroaded 15-year pay off
now in progress, so the time is ripe.
And since Mr. Hudson is the interim SUB chairman, we can think of no better person to begin the
rational examination of the mess.
In October, you will be asked to approve a year's
hiatus in the headlong rush to union building disaster.
Approval of this will ensure the funds needed for
next year's operation of the AMS program, PLUS the
solution of the SUB question as a board of inquiry — as
at Edmonton — carries on from the re-evaluation we
hope Mr. Hudson will begin this summer.
Careful re-assessment is the only hope the Mistake's
supporters can have of salvaging anything from the project which has now become a financial millstone dragging
the AMS into the red.
Meanwhile, on to October.
Well well, Mr. Burton ... did we have a little toe much to drink?
Editor, The Ubyssey, Sir:
Few will dispute the fact
that there is an increasing dissatisfaction among university
students everywhere with university administrations in general and among UBC students
with the administration of this
university in particular.
Many persons are concerned with the problem, some are
actively seeking solutions to
it. Randy Enomoto has chosen
to run for chancellor. His apparent objective is to become
part of the establishment from
which he and so many others
feel alienated; and in so doing
open up a channel of communication between those who
formulate the policies, those
who implement them, and
those who are affected by
them — the students. This is
an objective which I and many
other students would endorse.
However, I could never endorse Enomoto's candidacy,
indeed I deplore it, for I think
that the means chosen to realize this legitimate end can
only have the effect of derogating the excellence of the idea,
of putting off its realization
for an indefinite time if not
destroying it completely.
The Ubyssey has done a
great disservice to the student
body on this campus.
I know of two other students who are actively seeking
positions on the UBC senate
as legitimate candidates, motivated by a sincere desire to
position themselves where the
students' voices will be heard
and its impact more effective.
If The Ubyssey .were truly
concerned with having student
participation in university administration then it would be
giving more coverage to the
candidacy of Hugh Swayze
and Mike Hunter.
To date, this paper appears
more concerned with a student subsidized propaganda
sheet for Enomoto than a
champion of legitimate student

enough coverage. I think it

time to recap on an important
There is a definite lack of
involvement in education on
the part of both the student
and the professor. This deficit
can be seen as the inability of
the student to become truly
motivated to learn and as a
result of the professor's inability to truly teach.

Council vetoes Totem
Totem was carved up for the
second time Monday night.
The new AMS council in
its first regular meeting decided to cease publication of
the grad book section of the
UBC annual and to investigate
the feasibility of each faculty
publishing its own grad book.
The previous council scrapped Campus Life three weeks
Council objected to the
principle of a centralized
yearbook because the demand for such a book did not
justify its publication.
The action, passed at the
council meeting, provided for
reconsideration of publication
only if the graduating class
showed enough interest to subsidize the book.
Totem editor John Tyrrell
pointed out that Campus Life
was the section which had lost
the money.
"The grad book broke even",
he said.
Ubyssey editor John Kelsey
offered to investigate the cost
of. binding a year Of Ubysseys
and selling them instead of
Campus Life.

be a matter of increasing the
press run."

Newell supported the idea that
