Political grape squished in prof pad; three split
By ERIK BRYNJOLFSSON
Three profs resigned from the faculty club
Friday when its members refused to debate a
proposal for the club to boycott California grapes.
In their letter of resignation assistant philosophy profs Elbridge Rand, Ed Levy, and James
Dybikowski charged that 28 of the 48 club members who attended a special general meeting
Thursday to debate the proposal attended "solely
to shut off discussion at the outset."
At the meeting, Spanish prof John Macdonald
argued that the question was "political" and
therefore unconstitutional.
The constitution of the faculty club states
it is the object of the club to "promote the social,
cultural, and recreational interests of the members".
Assistant philosophy prof Gary Wedeking said
Monday it is not an issue of technicalities.
"The fact is there were 28 members committed
to not listening to debate by their fellow members,"  he  said.
"It shows they have a misconception of what
democracy is."
Wedeking, who proposed the motion to boycott California grapes, said it is no longer just a
question of the grape boycott.
"The main issue is whether the faculty club is
to be run by democratic means," he said.
The faculty club was the scene of a sit-in by
2,000 UBC student demonstrators in October,
many of whom claimed the club set up an undemocratic barrier between faculty and students.
Wedeking said the buying policy of the club
is a policy to be decided by the club members
"in spite of possible political ramifications."
"And although the boycott would be an implicit endorsation of the United Farm Workers
strike against the California growers, buying the
grapes might be implicit support for the growers,"
he said.
"I had quite a bit of information about the
strikers and what they were struggling for, but
I didn't get a chance to present it," said Wedeking.
(Farm workers in California have been striking
grape growers since 1965 for union recognition
and better working conditions.
The workers have no unemployment insurance, health benefits, or a minimum wage.
They are also asking for improved living conditions.)
Wedeking doesn't plan to resign because "the
fight's not finished."
"But if it turns out there's no hope the club
will be run by democratic means, I and probably
others will resign," he said.
Macdonald said Monday his intent was not
to shut off debate. "I merely raised a legal point,"
he said. He plans to release a statement this week.
Mrs. M. Stovell, dietitian of the central kitchen
in SUB was asked about California grapes.
"There hasn't been a grape in here since September," she said.

HARE,  LINDE ... a final explanation
> visser photo
Hare's off, tells us why
Pages 6 and 7 of today's Ubyssey contain
the first half of an exclusive interview with
former UBC administration president Dr. Kenneth Hare, who resigned Jan. 31.
Publication of The Ubyssey's interview
marks the first time Hare has made public
statements about his resignation and the events
of this year at UBC.
Hare was interviewed last Wednesday by
Ubyssey staffer Carey Linde.
In the interview, Hare describes some of
the reasons for his resignation and offers some
comments about what is wrong with UBC and
what the university should be striving for as
an ideal.
The second half of Linde's conversation
with the former president will appear in Friday's Ubyssey. In it, Hare discusses the university's administration, the president's job and
the university's role in society.
It was announced Monday that Hare has
accepted a geography professorship at the University of Toronto, effective July  1.
Hare told The Ubyssey his duties will include only teaching and research and he will
have no administrative responsibilities.
He said the emphasis of his research, which
has concentrated on climatology and the atmosphere, will shift to human environment and
related topics.
Betts, Smiley win AUS
Dick Betts, arts II, let a slate of radical
candidates to victory in Friday's arts undergraduate society election.
A mammoth voter turnout of 607 gave Betts
248 votes, or four per cent of the eligible
electorate.
Close behind, was Craig Meredith with 227
votes.
In the vice-presidential race Brett Smiley
trounced Nick Orchard 331 votes to 142.
Similarly Linda King beat Tom Mouat 353 to
188 in the contest for treasurer.
In another close tussle Ian Douglass won .
the post of secretary 273 to 241 over Kelvin
Beckett.
President Betts said, "Our big hassle right
'now is funds. We've got a petition going ask
ing the Alma Mater Society to let us levy our
own fees."
This extra fee, to go directly to the AUS
and free of the control of the AMS would
come under the proposed constitutional reforms.
Vice-president Smiley said, "There Will be
no anti-calendar this year because the information wasn't gathered in time and it's too late to
start now."
He also said the reason for the anti-calendar
for the last two years has been to "get the
professors off their asses and that has been
done."
Smiley suggested departmental unions
could print their own anti-calendars. He said
one of the priorities of the new government
was to publish a monthly arts newsletter.
AMS favors
losing CUS
The AMS council Monday night recommended pulling out
of the Canadian Union of Students.
The vote followed a discussion which was addressed by a
five man committee headed by CUS president-elect Martin
Loney.
The adopted motion, moved by AMS president-elect Fraser
Hodge, said CUS could no longer claim to be) a national union,
since membership has recently dropped from 46 to 22 schools,
that there} is no evidence of a reversal, that CUS has failed to
relate to B.C. students, and that it is inefficient on a national
level.
Loney replied that the trend of dropping out of CUS can be
reversed, and that it depends largely on what happens at UBC.
During the discussion, the CUS lobby was called ineffective.
Loney retorted, saying that the lobby itself was ineffective
without a power base.
"If we can't say to them (Ottawa) that there will be 100,000
students on your, doorstep if you don't listen to us, then we have
no basis for a national lobby."
In other council business, AMS voted to hold a joint money
referendum with the Athletic Associations on March  19.
The referendums will include a request for an AMS increase of $4, and an athletic fee increase of $5.
NSMC advert contract
turns up with lawyers
The Alma Mater Society executive is talking with its
lawyers about the broken contract between the AMS and the
National Student Marketing Association (NSMC).
NSMC broke a contract with the AMS in January when
they issued a second desk pad in spite of a contract signed in
September that limited them to only one this year.
"We're discussing it with our solicitors," was all AMS
president Dave Zirnhelt would say about it Monday.
Informed sources said the original copy of the contract is
nowhere to be found, and the last person known to have it was
Don Fergusson, local NSMC head.
Zirnhelt said the contract was somewhere in the AMS files,
but he wasn't Certain where.
AMS lawyers are also busy talking to NSMC lawyers about
signing a lease for the Thunderbird shop (owned by NSMC) in
the SUB basement.
Co-ordinator Dave Grahame said he thought the lawyers
stuck on a clause giving the AMS some control over what is
sold in the shop.
Treasurer Donn Aveh and Zirnhelt both refused to release
details of the clauses still to be signed in the contract, saying
it would jeopardize the negotiations.

balance of the island population. About 114 of them were
promptly arrested and clapped in stocks, where they are subject
to the dreaded Pango-Pangoan toenail-drilling torture.
The balance of the island's population protested by tickling

CHEATING
THE
ONLY
WAY
By RON THOMPSON
The Carillon
I want to call for an organized conscious
campaign of cheating for the spring examinations.
You see, I used to think that the examination system should be abolished, And a suitable protest would be that no one would write
exams. And I did that, but they still tried to
give me a degree.
So I gave up on that type of protest.
Now, I've sold out. All I want to do is to
make the examination system better. I mean,
you know the old schtick: If you can't beat
them et cetera.
I sat down for two weeks all by myself
in a closet with an armload of books and
candles.
And I thought and read and thought and
read and I didn't sleep much and after thirteen
and a half days I said, "Ahah!" and I came
out and here is what I had learned.
The examination is supposed to measure
how much you have learned about the subject
material being questioned via the examination,
up until the time your write your answers.
EXAM IS RIGGED
You would not be able to figure out any
(or at least not very many) of the answers just
by thinking about them in your virgin head.
So what the society does for you is give you
a place (the university) to learn in, and books
(the library) full of information, and people
(the teachers) who know all sorts of goodies
that they were examined on and that they read
and were taught. And if you want to, and are
brave or friendly of pretty enough, there are
even people around whom you can talk to and
listen to and learn good stuff from.
And if you've really been lucky, the books
you bought were used and written in (in ink
so you were not tempted to erase) and that was
still another person to talk to, or at least listen
to and learn from.
Now as a psychology professor said to his
class while they were writing his Xmas exam,
"Don't guess, because the exam is rigged and
I'll find out and it'll cost you."
And that's reasonable, because the exam
is only supposed to measure what you've learned and guessing would be cheating.
SLEEP WITH PROFESSOR
But if you're not going to cheat, there are
only a few ways to get good marks:
• Sleep with the professor (cheating in
more ways than one).
• Know ahead of time what's going to be
on the exams (called cheating unless the professor hands it out in some form of protest)
and even then it becomes a matter of how well
you can write or something like that.
• Guessing what the professor wants to
hear. (Cheating—see above.)
• Having the exam only on what the individual student learned from the course and
the reading and his life (but that's not an exam
in the accepted sense).
• Having the ex'am on what all the students have learned (impossible).
So I fall back on cheating as the only way
to pass the average exam.  But not everyone
wants   to   cheat,   or   does   it   well,   or   has   a
conscience that wiil let them do it at all. And    ~>
anyway the results would be better if everyone
co-operated and did it together.
COOPERATION  ON ANSWERS
So what I proposed is that when the exams
are passed around that the examinees get together and discuss the questions and decide on
the answers. If there are two or more solutions
to one problem, then you divide up the work
load among yourselves.
And this hardly even seems to be cheating,
the more I think about it. Because what ypu
put down is what you have just learned through
discussion, and that's what the examination is
supposed to be measuring.
It would be even better if you convinced
the professor (or maybe a couple of others who
know good things) to come into the discussion,
and if you brought your books and if you sent,
people out to the library for more" books, and
if someone went for coffee and cigarettes or
whatever makes you learn.
And if it took too long, like maybe a week
or two and you went home at night and thought
and dreamt about it and maybe discussed it
with your parents, that would be okay because the whole purpose is for what you write
down in the end (or even in the meanwhile) to
indicate what you've learned about the material
under  question.
EVERYONE A TEACHER
And in the end, all the answers would be
right if they were the answers of everyone in
the class including the teachers, so that marks
would be high.
And high marks are the point of the thing
are they not. I've seen that. I've come back.
Maybe they'd have to move the exams
ahead a week or two or maybe thirteen, but
this seems to be a perfectly good way to write
exams.
If we worked hard enough at it, it would be
a good way to learn and everyone could teach
everyone and be a teacher.
And   that   would   certainly   improve   the    „.
faculty/student   ratio,   would   make   even   the
government love us and would make the budget
rational.
And if everyone were a teacher, then the
students could begin to set their own exams.
And to give themselves enough time they
should do it at the start of the semester.
LESS ADMINISTRATIVE CRAP
And that could be the course. And for
teaching and examining themselves (at least
in part) the students in those classes could be
exempted from tuition, and that would make
the Canadian Union of Students happy.
And some of the radicals would be happy
because this would mean we could get rid of
some  of  the administrative  crap  because  all
we'd need would be some of those people to   .
keep exam records—not collect tuition.
And when they realized that everyone always got good marks they could do away with
the record-keeping and they wouldn't need
the computer for that and we wouldn't have to
throw it through a window.
We'd just have parties for everyone who
had been here a few years and had learned a
lot and put flowers around their necks and
call them BAs.
(Or maybe we could even think of something
more pleasant to call each other.)
Phoenix wins
The Phoenix, student newspaper at
Alberni District Senior Secondary, has
won The Ubyssey Shield as the best high
school newspaper in B.C.
Thearth, from Mt. Prevost Junior Secondary in Duncan, and The Taller, from
Grand Forks Senior Secondary, receive
honorable mention in the annual contest,
sponsored and judged by The Ubyssey
staff.
A delegation from The Ubyssey presented the shield to Phoenix editors Ed
Cepka and Mike Ruttan in Alberni Friday.
(Predictably, the issue that won the
award was banned by the school's principal.)
It is the third time in 13 years The
Phoenix has won the shield. Previous winner was The Peak, of Simon Fraser University. Tuesday, March 4, 1969

Trial, senate meeting
and red tape at SFU
Things are happening again at
Simon Fraser University.
Newly-elected student senators
John Conway and Donn Korbin served
notice of motion at a senate meeting
Monday night calling for an open admissions policy, abolition of the grading system, and a semester-long "teach-
in".
Their proposal calls for admission
upon application for: all members of
ethnic minorities, high school students
in "non-academic streams", junior and
regional college students, those who
have not completed a normal high-
school program, all American political
refugees, and all those who have met
minimum standards) of high school
graduation.
The motion said no students should
be turned away because of inadequate
facilities.
ABOLISH GRADING
Conway and Korbin also proposed
complete abolition of the grading system, which they described as an "institutionalized means of oppression",
the establishment of a pass-fail system,
and experimental non-graded courses
as interim measures.
Their proposal demands abolition
of tuition fees, a scholarship system
based on needs rather than grades, universal student stipends, and faculty and
student veto power over all changes in
curriculum and departmental structure.
The final part of the motion proposes that normal academic programs
be suspended for the fall 1969 semester
without loss of credit to students and
that time be used for a teach-in discussion of the "character and direction
of SFU."
Korbin said since the motion could
not be discussed at Monday night's
meeting it will either be on the agenda
of the next senate meeting or a special
meeting will be called to discuss it.
GUT PROBLEMS
Conway commented, "This motion
hits at the gut of the universities' problems." He refused to predict whether
the motion would pass, or what would
happen if it failed.
Conway is a member of the chapter
of Students for a Democratic University, which has scheduled a series of
events this week. Their purpose according to SDU organizer Brian Plummer, is to "expose the class nature of
the university."
Tuesday, SDU will distribute engraved invitations to the trial of the
114. The invitations will also be avail-
at UBC. SDU members will go into
classes and tutorials to explain the four
demands made at Monday night's senate meeting.
POLITICAL STATEMENTS
Wednesday, member of the 114 will
make political statements. There will
be a teach-in on the class nature of the
university, including a speaker from
the Native Alliance for Red Power.
Thursday, possible "mill-ins" will go
on, in the administration building.
"Perhaps there will be other activities
of this nature," added Plummer.
Throughout the week: Guerrilla
theatre by the SFU Mime Troupe.
Columbia abandons
Morningside gym
NEW YORK (CUPI) — Columbia
University has abandoned construction
on a new gymnasium in Morningside
Park adjacent to the university. The
decision to build was one of the major
causes of the violent uproar last spring
at the school.
Acting administration president
Andrew W. Cordier said Thursday he
would recommend a stoppage on the
project since it was apparent a "sizeable field of opinion in the community"
objected to the gym.
"UNSETTLED POPULATION"
That waS the community which retired administration president Grayson
Kirk, who said, in a confidential memo
that fell into the hands of Ramparts
magazine: "These newcomers (blacks
and Puerto Ricans) create an unsettled
population, always pressing to secure
cheap accommodations in this area.
They are mobile with no interest in
the community. Their average length
of occupancy of apartments is eight
months."
Parks commissioner August Heck-
scher praised Cordier for making a
"bold and, I believe, essentially rfght
decision." His predecessor, Thomas
Hoving, said before he left office the
university would build its new gym
"over my dead body."
"MANIFEST DESTINY"
The gym was only one part of a
proposed $200 million clearance and
development project planned by Columbia of the area. One letter stolen
from Kirk's files during the occupation
of his office revealed a memo to Kirk
from Columbia's chief counsel John
Wheeler which spoke of the university's "manifest destiny to expand west
of Broadway."
The residents of the area banded
together to form a Morningside renewal council, representing some 60
neighborhood groups and associations
and have negotiated with the school
ever since the blow-up.
10,000 DISPLACED
At the time, Columbia's plan for
Morningside Heights included the elimination of all low-cost units for "unaffiliated persons" and the construction
of none.
Ramparts   reported  that  Columbia
had displaced over 10,000 people in
the last decade and planned to displace
an equal amount in the coming one.
The university's development plans,
according to the research done by
Ramparts, were not to be interfered
with. It rarely goes through legal eviction procedures to rid tenants from
properties it buys, instead it simply
stops servicing the house.
ENDLESS COMPLAINTS
Tenants have complained about
stoppages in the heating system, lack
of rent collection, and a system which
has agents plug the house lock when
the tenants are out, effectively locking
them out of their homes.
But after the demonstrations last
year, apparently university policy
changed. Cordier said Thursday that it
had become clear "that before a decision is made by the university, the university should be guided in its decision
by the expressed will of the community upon the matter."
Mystic Watts
speaks on reality
Zen expert, philosopher, mystic and
author Alan Watts appears in Vancouver this week but two of his six appearances are already sold out.
Those  with   tickets  still   available
on  Thursday  noon  in  the  SUB  ballroom, Friday noon at the Queen Elizabeth    (Playhouse,     a
Saturday morning
symposium-discussion
in the SUB ballroom,
and a Saturday night
session    to    discover
"Are You Sound?" at
the   Manhattan   ballroom, 1727 W. Broad-
WATTS way.   The   last   two
cost $1.50 for students.
Watts, considered by many the leading western interpreter of eastern
philosophy and religion, will talk
specially for students Thursday noon
about Symbol and Reality: Parable of
the Dollar for 50 cents admission.
Further information is available at
the extension department, 228-3181.
Law students give money
What would you do if you had a lot
of money?
Three points for those who would
throw a huge party. You'd make a

A recent general meeting of the
society, attended mainly by third year
students, decided to raise the usual
allotment of $120 for a grad class photo
to $500 to include a banquet.
Another $1000 was voted unanimously to the Inner-City Service Project for their legal aid program.
The Inner-City Service Project also
received $6,000 as a gift from the graduating class.
The law students made $2,000 from
new vending machines in their building.

THE       UBYSSEY
LETTERS  TO THE  EDITOR
Plastic kelp
Editor, The Ubyssey. Sir:
To those students, who are
protesting against the 'beach
plan road' around the bottom
of the cliffs of the UBC campus. Have you considered the
geological structure of the
beach?
I am quoting from the Province: "Students say the point
is a beautiful secluded area
that is being ruined by the filling operation. 'I don't want
another Spanish Banks - type
beach,' said Boehm."
Well, Mr. Boehm, it appears
you have never taken the time
to study or observe the beach
situation of the Point Grey
area, because if you did you
would   have   known   that   the
beach cliff is receding every
year.
The reason is that soil erosion is tremendous during the
winter months, thus carving
out the cliffs and they cannot
be rebuilt by nature. This is
the reason for the road which
I presume, you know about to
combat beach erosion.
But what about the cliff,
this presents another situation.
What would happen to the
UBC campus if the erosion is
not prevented?
I'm also concerned about
another 'Spanish Banks - type
beach', but I think this is the
wrong approach you are leading the students into, especially
if you do not understand the
situation of shore-line erosional

May I suggest that you or

Anti-warring
Editor, The Ubyssey, Sir:
I feel I must make some comments on the article which
your paper printed by Brain
Slocock on the Vietnam mobilization this April.
Firstly, I cannot agree that
the dispute was between a
"peace slogan" and "anti-imperialism". Those who called
for a march around the theme
of withdraw US troops now
and Vietnam for the Vietnamese have no illusions that
the Paris peace negotiations
solve all our problems. We are
Consumer debt growing fast
When politicians and so-called "financial
experts" undertake a discussion of our economy
they are fond of making statements about Canadians "living too high off the hog" and "what
this country needs is more thrift." And indeed
to someone; from Mars, reading reports of outstanding consumer debt reaching the $9.2 billion
mark in 1968, it might look like things, are
getting out of hand.
However, anyone with the least bit of down-
to-earth common sense will readily realize that
going into debt is the only way in which most
workers can manage to acquire many of the
things they need. Who, these days, can pay
cash for a home or a car? Not only the homes,
but the furnishings that go into them, are on
a plan of "buy now, pay later". This is not
because people are not thrifty or are living too
high off the hog, but simply because they need
the things now and not sometime in the distant
future. The same is true of children's clothing
and school supplies.
Anyway, wherever a person looks, all signs
emphasize that credit is easy to get and saving
is pointless because of inflation and rising
taxes. Credit is now really big business and is
sold like any other commodity under capitalism
— to make a profit. And profits are enormous.
Credit always easy
So anxious are the monopolists to sell
credit that sales clerks are under strict orders
to make customers aware of how easy it is to
obtain credit. An automobile salesman has
little interest in a customer who wants to pay
cash. A sale made on credit can easily double
the profit margin, or even better. Companies
like General Motors, Ford and all big department stores have their own financing departments so they can take full advantage of the
lucrative profits to be gained from credit buying. You can get credit from your friendly
retail store, local finance and loan company,
credit union, insurance company or at any one
of a number of banks. It all, adds up to a lot
of fat monopolists piling up more mountains
of wealth because working people cannot afford
to pay cash.
Consumer debt is increasing rapidly and
showing definite signs of instability in the economy. The figure of $9.2 billion is 2.3 times
the 1960 figure, while the gross national product is only 1.8 times the figure for the same
year. A calculation by the Provincial bank of
Canada which measures outstanding debt as a
proportion of the income for the following
year — that is the year during which the contracted debt must be repaid — indicates that
consumer debt calculated to the end of 1967
was 19 per cent of the projected disposable
income for 1968. The comparable figure for
1960 was 15 per cent. All of which shows thai
debt is increasing at a faster rate than incomes.
Actual ratio higher
This is all the more startling when one
takes into account that several million low-
income workers have no access to credit. Therefore, the ACTUAL ratio of debt to income is
much greater than it appears, that is, for those
workers who do have access to credit.
What does all this tell us about our economic situation? First of all, any system which
runs to such a large extent on credit is on very
shaky foundations. With rising unemployment
credit will become more restricted. (Even now
it is impossible for anyone with an income
under $8,000 to buy a house). This will have a
serious effect on consumer spending and therefore, on the economy in general. Rising interest
rates and "tight money" are already having
an adverse effect on the economy.
A rough estimate by the writer indicates
consumer debt represents about one-sixth of
all consumer spending. Obviously, shutting off
one-sixth of all consumer spending would have
an effect nothing short of disastrous.
Everyone pays lor credit
Everybody pays the cost of credit buying,
even paying cash because of the mark-up • on
goods to pay for "bad debts" and other incidentals. And on top of all the other things
is the effect debt has on the indvidual. Families
break up, people have nervous breakdowns
and suicides are by no means rare, all because
of worry over mounting debts and the expected consequences of the inevitable day when
payments cannot be met.
Consumer credit was never designed as a
service to the consumer as the loan companies
would have us believe. It is a system of usury
designed solely for the making of gigantic
profits. As is usual with all such "public services" under capitalism, the few grow rich at
the expense of the sweat, health and happiness
of the many.

Those who call for anti- imperialist slogans merely want
to turn an anti-war march into

During the 114 trial
transfer gets tougher
By RUTH DWORKIN
When I first entered the Burnaby courtroom, I was struck
by its similarity to a church: the spectators (congregation), court
officials (clergy), and finally, the judge, seated on high, in his
black robes which contrasted with the white curtain backdrop
descending from the unseen heights. The judge talks to the
officials directly, but only to the spectators through the court
clerk.
This Wednesday, I'll be appearing for the fourth time in
the Burnaby courthouse to receive my sentence as one of the
114 people arrested last November at Simon Fraser University.
By now, the reasons behind the occupation have beocme relatively obscure, and the admissions policies at Simon Fraser,
which we were fighting to change, remain the same.
In fact, instead of making university transfer within the
province easier, we now see that the UBC Senate has taken steps '
to make their policies more restrictive! The questions of higher
education in this province is still as muddled and maligned as
ever. Instead of looking at the unrest on campuses and searching
for causes, the power elite and uninformed public are more
concerned with repressing dissidents  and  restoring  'order'.
It will be interesting to see what the court will decide with
regard to sentences, and hopefully we will all be treated equally
and given identical sentences.
The other alternative will be some sort of distinctions within .*
the group. How could they divide us? By leadership roles? We
have stated again and again that there were no leaders of the
occupation. By SFU students, other students, and non-students?
And if so, how will the sentences differ? If the court were to
punish non-SFU students more severely, this would imply that
we had less right to be there.
But we non-SFU students feel that we were justified in
being in the administration building. The main motivation behind
our involvement was to obtain a just system of education for the
people of this province, and to protest the arbitrary and unjust
admissions policy of one of our public universities. Social oppression and prejudice concern everyone and transcend all the
artificial barriers that are placed before us.
In court Wednesday our three lawyers will deliver speeches
in our defence. In addition, two of the women will address the
court on behalf of the 104 who are pleading guilty to the charge.
Others may also be prompted to address the court. It remains to
be seen how the prosecution will resent our actions and how the
judge will interpret them.
All readers are encouraged to come and join the court
congregation. It is the only way for you to get any idea of how
Canadian justice works. No description could adequately replicate the personal experience.
So come to the Burnaby courthouse, Gilpin and Canada
Way, starting 9:30 March 5, and continuing until March 17, to
see exactly how the courts will decide to treat the 114.

An Appeal
to student unions everywhere
Dear friends,
We would be very happy if this
letter will ever reach you, because for
a long time we have wanted some mutual communication that would establish our friendship and understanding
whereby we could all find ways and
means of working together in our common struggle for genuine student
rights, for liberty and justice. But so
far, we have met with great obstacles
and we ask ourselves whether your
newspapers have any idea of them. We
would like to tell you about some important events that have recently happened to the Saigon student body.
From DISPATCH, a weekly newsletter
published in Vietnam by young American
journalists and artists.
We are represented here by two relating organisms:
e The Saigon Students Representative Council (SSRC) which comprises
the Executive Committees of fourteen
Departments of the University of Saigon, and
• The Executive Committee of
the General Association of Saigon Students (GASS) which has seven standing members elected by the SSRC.
The Executive Committee for 1967-
1968 was elected on April 14, 1968. Although separate and different from
each other, the two organisms have
come to serve their student members
and their attitudes toward the present
national tragedy.
Shortly after this election, Saigon
was faced with the second wave of offensive by the soldiers of the National
Liberation Front and we found ourselves devoting most of our time working to alleviate some of the victims'
plight. At the beginning of June was
born Student published by the Executive Committee of the GASS to serve
as the student voice of the association.
Half a month after the periodical came
out (having been duly submitted to the
censors as required by the authorities),
the government of Saigon suddenly
declared us to be pro-Communists,
Communist stooges, etc . . . On July
2, 1968, the police abducted our friend
Nyguyen Truong Con, the publication's
editor-in-chief, and searched for co-ed
Nguyen Dang Trung, the chairman of
the executive committee of the GAS6-
On Sept. 14, 1968, police arrested
student Dinh Trong Cuong and took
him back to his room at the students'
headquarters where they found a number of NLF flags and leaflets. Despite
our protestation that we had no responsibility whatever over this, while
everyone was still waiting to see the
outcome of this incident, the national
police searched our office at 4 Duy Tan
Street. Wreaking havoc amidst our
documents and papers, they, nevertheless, did not find whatever they were
looking for and instead arrested Nguyen Thanh Cong, chairman of the University and High School Students For
The Relief of War Victims and Secretary General of the Representative
Council of Saigon Students (SSRC).
On Sept. 25, 1968, the government
brought out a new provisional executive committee (for the GASS1) of its
own creation with student Nguyen
Tuong Quia its head, thereby illegally
overthrowing the duly elected comit-
tee.  The  puppet  committee, however,
was denounced by the students and fell
half-a-month later with the result that
the legitimate 1967-1968 committee is
presently standing firm with the support of the Representative Council of
Saigon, of the students at large, and
other compatriots of various walks of
life.
On Oct. 4, 1968, however, Cong
was tried by a military tribunal and
convicted. Truth of the matter is that
Cong has simply worked closely with
the Executive Committee in organizing, on July 13 and September 8, sessions of discussions whose topics were
peace among the professors of the vari-
ious faculties, members of the religions,
and other congressmen, and that he,
among other representatives from other
departments of the university, has
signed the June 13, 1968 appeal for
peace.
Although Cong was given a suspended sentence, he was not released
as required by the law. At the Chi Hoa
prison, Cong protested this by fasting,
the first time from Oct. 10 to 12, the
second from Oct. 14 to twenty days later, while on the outside, various individual students, members of GASS,
workers, religions faithfuls of the religions, and even some congressmen
publicly demanded that Cong be permitted to go free. The government ignored this appeal. Instead, Cong was
brought to an army induction centre
-where he presently still remains even
though his draft deferment runs until
Dec. 15 of this year.
Recently, on Oct. 30, the Representative Council of Saigon Students released a statement containing the following points:
• We demand that the U.S. stop
the bombing of the entire territory of
North Vietnam so that this would lead
to a search for a cease-fire in the South.
• We demand that all parties to
the war sit down at a conference table
and work for a political solution to
the war thereby bringing peace to our
people.
• We condemn all acts of military
escalation which only shatter all and
every effort toward peace for Vietnam
as well as for the world.
• We appeal to all organizations
of religious faithfuls, workers, teachers
and students to raise their voices in behalf of peace in our homeland.
This statement was signed by the
representatives of the seven departments of the university. Three of the
signers were soon arrested on the
morning of Nov. 9, and no one knows
whether they will be shortly released
or will instead have to face trial by a
military tribunal as did others before
them. Other students looked for by the
police have gone into hiding. Student
leaders are presently living under constant threat and harrassment not knowing when their turn will come to be
incarcerated.
Dear friends, having read the preceding, you know to a certain extent
about the position, activities, and problems of the Saigon students. We believe, in, as always, and profess our
commitment to peace, people, and
humanity.
We fervently hope you will keep
up your efforts to bring peace back to
our homeland. Were you here you
would see how happy we are every
time we learn of a new protest march
or demonstration by our foreign friends
demanding an end of the war. Like us,
they must have been overwhelmed
with joy and hope upon learning that
a total bombing halt over North Viet-
name had taken place. A temporary
truce is not enough, we must demand
a complete, general cessation of all
armed hostilities, a total end of the
war itself.
Before saying goodbye, we wish
you, our friends who are on the side of
peace and reason, good health, good
luck, and success in all your tasks.
With warm greetings and deep
gratitude.

RA VING
RONNIE
REAGAN
By JOHN ZEH
College Press Service
WASHINGTON <CUP-CPS)—California's Ronald
Reagan Thursday called for a federal investigation
into campus disorders, but other state governors
here for their national conference declined to back
him.
Reagan's resolution, announced at a morning
conference, called on the governors to urge the president and the justice department to investigate the
possibility of a conspiracy in disruptive campus
protests.
But arguments of states rights and academic
freedom —'and unfamiliarity with the resolution,
the issues, and the implications — kept Reagan's
proposal from being accepted.
Instead the group passed a statement adopted
earlier by tbe conference's excutive committee that
"extends its full support to the president . . . relative to the preservation and advancement of higher
education, -which is being jeopardized on many . . .
campuses."
In a closed session, Gov. Calvin L. Rampton of
Utah moved to substitute the committee statement
for Reagan's proposal. His motion finally passed
unanimously, but only after a proposal to keep
Reagan's language in a watered-down form failed.
Mississippi's John Bell Williams wanted the governors to "support" a federal probe, not "urge" it as
Reagan had wanted.
Williams said later that the Reagan resolution
was "dropped" like a "hot potato".
The California governor's move did cause some
scrambling by governors who insist that educators
should have control over their affairs. Michigan's
William G. Milliken and Massachusett's Francis W.
Sargent appeared at Reagan's press conference, tempering the atmosphere charged by Reagan's resolution.
Both declined to give unqualified support to
Reagan, and stressed that legitimate dissent should
not be discouraged. Milliken hesitated to endorse a
federal probe.
Reagan then added that he wanted "to associate
himself with these remarks about not curbing legitimate dissent". Asked if the presence of federal investigators might not precipitate more trouble on
the campus, he spoke of student-provoked violence
— fire bombings, students being beaten by other,
radical students.
I interrupted to ask about police beating students.
"We have no evidence of police going out and
doing anything of that kind," he said, inspiring
guffaws from even the establishment reporters. "But
we have evidence to the contrary."
Students surrounding individual policemen reminded him of a "lynch mob," he said, "what does
a policeman do inl self-defence?"
Vice-president Spiro Agnew sent to the conference by president Nixon, indicated the investigation
suggested by Reagan is not necessary because the
justice department has already conducted such a
probe.
Agnew said there is no dispute between the
academic community and' the government over educators' handling campus affairs. Agnew, as governor
of Maryland, sent state police last year to the Bowie
State College campus to put down black student
protests.
The final, adopted statement also said:
"Lawless acts by a small segment of the student
population must not be allowed to interfere with
the vast number of students who are seeking to
exercise their educational opportunities. We join
with others who share a responsible role in pledging
actions which will ensure the continuation of these
opportunities."
Reagan's resolution said "there is growing evidence of nation-wide co-ordination in the planning,
the nature, the timing, and the leadership in campus
disruptions."
It is not the purpose of campuses "to serve as
staging grounds or practice fields for insurrection,
rebellion, and anarchy," he said.
The investigation would have sought to determine, among other things, if there is a nation-wide
plan or organization behind the current outbreaks;
whether federal funds should be withheld from
institutions, faculty members, and students who permit or perform unlawful acts; and whether there are
specific steps that could be recommended to the
states and the insitutions that would lessen the incidence of violence without, at the same time, curbing dissent, hampering the ability of the institutions
to function in its proper area, or instituting new
federal controls over the legitimate authority of
the states.
At the close of the press conference, Reagan was
asked if his probe was not aimed at isolating activists. "If this is guerrilla warfare, the basis of fighting (it) is to eliminate the guerrillas," the governor
replied. Page 6

i
Linde: You are remaining at UBC for a while to
prepare a report for the board of governors.
Hare: That's right.
Linde: Can you tell us anything about that, i.e.
what will be in it and will it be made public ?
Hare: Well that's entirely a matter for the board.
I just do not wish to leave this job without giving
them an accounting of what I have done, and what
I have discovered. If they want to make use of it,
publish it, afterwards, fair enough, but that's up to
them.
Linde: The nature of this is sort of your mem-
oires  as  president ?
Interview by
CAREY LINDE
Hare: Yes. It's a little more than that. I hope
to make some constructive suggestions as to what
needs, in fact what MUST be done, for this university, particularly for its finances, in the immediate
future if something isn't to go down the drain.
Linde: Do you feel that we are on the verge of
losing a lot down the drain, that maybe it's too late
for higher education in some sense ?
Hare: No, I don't think it is ever too late. It is
tragically late, but not too late, to do something
about it. The thing that makes me very sad about
UBC, and about leaving it, is that in seven months
actually in office, and 12 months before that thinking about it, I really got to know the place a heck
of a lot better than most people do because it was my
job.
I am very familiar with the criticisms that are
directed against the modern university.
The Ubyssey has taken me apart once before for
saying this, but I'm still going to say it again: this
is a better place, in many ways, than a lot of the
rich eastern universities.
Linde: In what ways, for instance ?
Hare: Well, it's still true to say that it is easier
to make changes here than it is a big rigid eastern
university. I've had experience at McGill and incidentally, with two of the big American universities.
I find among the senior faculty here a much
stronger sense that this is a west coast university,
that this is where things might be flexible and fluid;
and so there is a more experimental air about faculty meetings and about the senate.
Linde: Why is it that concerned students don't
get this impression, but rather too often find things
rigid and inflexible, particularly the attitudes of the
so-called senior faculty? Where is the misunderstanding?
Hare: The misunderstanding is exactly that; it is
a misunderstanding. This to me is the academic
tragedy, the gap that has opened up between the
conservative members of faculty, who are not nearly
so inflexible as most members of the student body
appear to think, and the serious-minded and, for
my money, extremely alert student body.
I did manage to get some kind of bridge over this
gap. I was very much in touch with both faculty
and student bodies in this institution, and I felt that
"I'm going back to teaching, and I'm going to stay in teaching because it is what
I think I can do best. Quite apart from
that, it is what I think is vital."
Linde: What is it going to take to get over this
misunderstanding?
Hare: Well, since I quit I have had a number of
faculty say to me that they are very glad that we
have now started a dialogue with the student body
and telling me that they are in fact indulging in it.
And I believe this is true. I believe there has
been a very considerable shift, a change in the past
12 months. Certainly I worked as hard as I could
toward bringing this about. There won't be any
fundamental change within the university until
there is a real and lasting rapprochement between
the  teacher  and student.
This to me is it. This is the crux of the whole
academic tragedy, the fact that this gap exists. If
it didn't exist I don't think anything could stop
the universities.
Linde: Could you give us your thoughts on why
it is that the more creative minds in society are not
being found in the university today ?
Hare: It is not only in the sciences that a considerable fraction of the most creative minds are not
inside the university. It is across the whole scope.
I would like the university to be the place where
simply the most intelligent, imaginative people in
society come to do their thing.
It is conspicuous that a good many of the brightest people are repelled by something about the
modern university. They stay out.
Linde: What is it, do you think, that is repelling
them?
Hare: It is partly the sort of critical atmosphere
of the university. For example, in most of the universities I've been in the humanities departments
lay  much   more   stress   upon   criticism  than  upon
they were closer together, as a matter of fact, than
they are in many of the places in the east.
To me it is a tragedy that we should even say
there is such a gap, because as a teacher, I don't
believe that I can survive if I think there is any
kind of chasm between me and any substantial part
of the student body.

writing. Generally speaking* when you get faculties
of the various performing arts, there is heavy stress
on the purely academic research aspect of it.As far
as I'm concerned the really bright people generally
want to be performers or writers or originators. It
is just that most universities have been particularly
inhospitable to first-class performers, and I'm not
just now talking about music and painting, but about
performers in the sciences, and across the whole
range of intellectual activity.
Linde: How do you relate the following statistics ?
Of all the outside funds that come into UBC for re- •
search, 94 per cent of the money is for science, five
per cent for the social sciences, and only one per
cent for  the  humanities.
Hare: This is the way the external public tends
to look at it. So that the Canadian government provides extensive funds to the National Research Coun
cil which funds science, and the Medical Research
Council which funds medicine, and has put a great
deal into the humanities.
Really, that's a judgment that is made by people
outside the university. I think it is a criticism of the
way research funding is carried out that universities
have been pretty nearly powerless to do anything
about   this.
Linde: Do you think that the university is being
bought off by outside interests, and that unwittingljs.
the university is merely supporting the status quo,
and not offering a platform for reform in our social
and political life ? *.
Hare: I think that is too strong. The university as
an institution is not a particularly strong instrument
in this reform anyway, because it tends to leave the
initiative for this in the hands of its individual members.
The effort to persuade the government, particu.
larly the federal government to put more money
into humanistic work has largely been carried out
by professors, like myself, who have urged this
for years and years in Ottawa, with some success.
Incidentally, one of the things that universities
often get accused of is being dictated to by industries
about this. As a matter of fact, this isn't true in the
Canadian context. Canadian industry puts very
little into the kitty. It is certainly true in the U.S.
that there is huge industrial input, but here, this is
"I'm  basically  a  teacher,  basically
scholar. I found the job repellent."
largely put in by the federal government, which fs
the big funding agency, and if there is a job of education to do, you've got to persuade the federal politicians.
Linde: So on the one hand, while politicians
claim education is a provincial responsibility, in
more ways than one the federal government is pulling a lot of strings.
Hare: To a very large extent, the research in the
universities is federally financed. Only Quebec has
systematically challenged this University people like
myself always say that you can't make this distinction, between what you need to teach and what you^
need to research, and that it is a fallacy. But it is
imposed upon us by the way the BNA Act is interpreted.
Linde: Could you expand on this idea of a Uni-t
versify I, as opposed to an Arts I or a Science I, with
the   emphasis   of  putting  it  under  the  president's
office. -.
Hare: Well, I've been very, very impressed with
the work of Arts I. I don't think it is without flaws,
but I've been impressed. And I should like to see
the scope of this kind of broad-ranging degree extended to include the sciences; because you don't
just teach science on a college campus to train
people, as sometimes is indicated in science as a
useable skill. It is part of the philosophy of the age.
I would like to see science brought within the same
kind of orbit. Now, if you do that, you've really-
created a university-centred philosophical core of the
old kind that used to be the core of the university.
If you do this I think you have to put it outside
the  structure  of  the present faculties  of arts and

You can't call it liberal anymore,  because the

Linde: What specific lack of resources are we

or is it deeper ? If Bennett dropped a hundred million on us tomorrow, would there still not be the
basic problem of the style of classrooms, more cubicles, more outdated text books, old concepts of
teaching.
Would not forces of inertia allow the admini-
t strative process to give us twice the problem we
presently have ?
Hare: I agree with you that there are other
things   to  our  problems than   simply  the   lack   of

or haven't got an office. But I agree that there is
more to it than that.
We could in fact, and I'm not now just talking
about UBC, increase the effective capacity of the
teaching buildings by being a little bit more flexible
about lecture arrangements, about the number of
courses you need to put through a degree course.
We could be a bit more flexible too, I think, about
the dates on the terms. I have unrepentantly always
wanted to see the summer session of every university
a regular part of the academic year. I've been teaching summer school myself for twenty years and it
always struck me as odd that this was considered
something different from the rest of the year.
There are many things, in other words, that still
remain to be done, to make sure that we make best
use of the space we do have. And having said that,
we make just as good use of space here as I think
"I would like the university to be the
place where the most intelligent, imaginative people in society come to do their
thing. A good many ol the brightest
people are repelled by something about
the modern university."
any university does. I've actually looked into this.
But we need buildings terribly badly.
Linde: I don't mean to dampen the fact that in
comparison with other universities UBC may be
better off than most, it strikes me that the problems
here are national and international.
Even in the so-called "best" universities the
problems are almost the same: that it is more than
money, that what has really got students bugged
is not of direct financial making, that somehow the
university in society today is not creating critical
awareness,  but inhibiting   it.
Hare: I'm aware of this attitude in serious student
minds, and to some extent I share it. I think that
we have got to re-examine the role of a university
in modern society, and re-examine it very fundamentally. I'm to some extent engaged in this re-examination myself.
I'm going back to teaching, and I'm going to stay
in teaching because it is what I think I can do best.
Quite apart from that, it is what I think is vital.
Incidentally, what I mean by teaching is to teach
myself as well as to teach any student that may
come along, because the essence of good teaching
is that you are still teaching yourself.
Linde: What made you come out of the teaching
role and become a university president ? What has
happened to you between the time you accepted the
job,  and  now ?
Hare: To a very large extent it is my own fault
and nobody else's fault, that things got fouled up
for me here. I misunderstood, I think both-* my own
capacity and the nature of the job.
The job is political. That's the essence of it. It
has to do with dealing with the external public, with
pressure forces inside the university, not in terms
of one's own personal convictions and one conscience,
'There won't be any fundamental change
within the university until there is a real
and lasting rapprochement between the
teacher and student."
but in terms of positions that one has to take on
behalf of the institution,  political positions.
And I did this to the best of my ability, but I
found it an intensely wearing and often pretty
troubling thing. I simply got myself into a position
where I could neither sleep nor stay awake with
myself, in effect.
Last fall I ran into a crisis which was not really
made by anybody inside the university, but one
where I finally decided that I couldn't continue.
I'm well aware that I  ought to be  able to strike
a ringing attitude about this, but this isn't the way
life really  is.
Broadly speaking I found myself in a position
where I knew that as president I had to advocate
policies which, as Kenneth Hare, I would find it
extraordinarily difficult to carry out. And I am
Kenneth Hare, rather than president.
Linde:  Did you agree with the policies ?
Hare: Oh, sure. But it is a question of the man
behind them. I'm basically a teacher, basically a
scholar. I found the job repellent.
Linde: What about the question of enrolment
cutbacks ?
Hare: I remain unrepentantly of the opinion that
if a student of the required capacity wishes to go to
this university the public ought to provide him with
facilities.
At the moment we have the absurd situation that
enrolment policy is still left to the individual institutions when the individual institutions are not free
to determine how much capital they will get.
The province is making the decision on the allocation of capital, and there is a rough equation you
can use between what capital you get and how many
students you can admit. And we are just begging
this question. And there is nothing the university
can do about it because it doesn't make the financial
decisions.
Linde: Can you read anything into this year's
budget for the three universities ? Is it just keeping
up, falling behind, or moving ahead on the prdblem ?
Hare: I thought the operating budget looked
better than I had feared, but the capital allocation is
still nowhere near what is required. This university
has a backlog of many millions of dollars.
It isn't the institutions themselves that require
it, it is the public. It is the public need. I keep stress
ing the fact that this isn't a selfish wish on the part
of the universities, but it is the effort to do the job
for which they are constituted.

Soviet education rapped
by Canadian communist
"The present Russian rulers, although more skilful, more
efficient, and more ruthless than their Tsarist predecessors, are
not as honest, nor do they call their policies Russification."
So says John Kolasky of Toronto, for 30 years a member
of the Canadian Communist Party who will speak in Buchanan
100, Friday Mar. 7, at noon on Russian Education: Internationalism or Russification.
Kolasky came to this conclusion after a 1963-1965 visit to
Kiev where he studied at the Higher Party School of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Ukraine.
He published a book, Education In Soviet Ukraine, in
which be obesrved that parents are afraid to insist their children be taught in Ukrainian, and that in each of the republics
in the USSR, the percentage of students studying in Russian is
higher than the percentage of Russians living in the republic.
Kolasky's visit will be sponsored by Alpha Omega.

Violent reaction to
Wisconsin "tokenism"
MADISON (CUPI) — Failure of a faculty committee
to satisfy student demands provoked 200 students of the
University of Wisconsin into an hour of vandalism Thursday.
The students ignited smoke bombs, broke furniture,
lights and wall clocks, and overturned vending machines
in at least nine buildings during the one-hour rampage.
The move came after the university faculty had announced a department of black studies would be established
in response to black student demands which provoked the
strike.
The students charged the faculty recommendation was
a "tokenist" response to their demands which included admission of more black students into the university.
The students also charged there was little provision
for student participation in the establishment and administration of the new department.
Five students were arrested during Thursday's disturbance.

NATIONAL GUARDSMEN, state patrolmen and Berkeley police keep back students at University of California rally recently. Disputes going back to the 1964 Free Speech Movement
and earlier have ground to a frustrating halt    on both sides.
Education 'in mess'
Higher education in California is a mess, a
report last week to a committee of the California
legislature decided. It called for amalgamation of
the state's junior colleges, state colleges and the
nine campuses of the University of California into
a supeT-UC with more than a million students
and an all-powerful centralized board of regents.
California is the trend-setter in North America
and the whole nightmare of programmed, super-
efficient education factories seems to be coming
true.
The national guard has been standing by at
Berkeley for a week, in governor Ronald Reagan's
words, to keep UC open "at the point of a bayonet".
Thursday hundreds of students were gassed.
At San Francisco State College across the bay,
a strike by 500 teachers and students continues.
Teachers have deferred to a meeting later this
week a settlement proposal by the administration.
At the same time, president S. I. Hayakawa
announced Dr. Nathan Hare was fire. Hare was
to be head of a black studies department, one of
the strikers' demands.
Strikers at S.F. State and Berkeley are en-
tirely justified—20 per cent of San Francisco's
population is non-white but only six per cent of
the college's enrolment is.
Some of the demands and grievances of the
Third World Liberation Front at Berkeley, similar
to those at S.F. State, are included below. Main
demand is for a third world college within the
university.
"The third world college is envisioned as a
major academic subdivision of the university
such as agricultural science, chemistry, enginer-
ing. ... It would accept students directly from
high school or as transfers from other institutions.
"Admission . . . will be based primarily on
their potential to learn as determined by the
third world college's admissions office.
"Third world people must have the power
to set up such programs, that choices as to curriculum, faculty and administration will take
into consideration not just academic requirements but also the needs of third world communities. . . .
"The administration makes continual references to extensive efforts on behalf of minority
persons. What does the record show? (Chancellor Roger) Heyns' 'extensive efforts' have resulted in the addition of four blacks, nine
Mexican-Americans and one Indian to the
faculty.
"If third world minorities -were given employment and admitted to student status up to
their percentage in the state, their numbers
would increase by over 8,400.
"The university follows a pattern of racial
discrimination in its hiring practices. At present despite all the effort Heyns claims to have
made, out of a total of 16,123 on the university
campus, only 1,440 or nine per cent are third
world people. With four to five thousand hirings
last year, the number of jobs held by minorities
increased by only 306."
Instructions issued to strikers Feb. 21:
"Be cool. No violence will be initiated by
our side. All picket lines will remain peaceful
and legal at all times. No rock throwing. Obey
the TWLF monitors. Refuse to be provoked
and intimidated by the police. Be careful, the
national guard is on alert. Do not give Reagan
the excuse.

Hey-
Just a minute!
Stop and think. Millions
of women are using
Tampax tampons. There
must be a reason.
Maybe it's because
Tampax tampons are so
easy and convenient to
use.
Maybe it's because
they give truly hygienic
internal protection.
Maybe it's because
the satin-smooth container-applicator protects the tampon prior to
use.
Maybe it's because
once the tampon is in
place you never know
it's there.
There are a lot of good
reasons for using
Tampax tampons. So

B'ball Birds under
the dissectors' gaze
By TONY GALLAGHER
Ubyssey Basketball  Analyst
Performing an autopsy on the 68-69 Thunderbird  basketball  team  is  like  examining  a
dead skunk.
They  stink.
What happened to the
team that 'could have been
the best in a decade'?
Was it the injuries, the
coach, an underlying disen.
sion undetected by the players
themselves, poor performances by individuals from
who much more was expected ?
Clearly it was a combination of these and other problems which plagued the Birds
all season.
First there were the injuries to Ron Thorsen, Derek Sankey, Bob Barrazuol, Phil Langley, and just about anybody else who got into
a  UBC  uniform.
These maladies did hurt but they didn't
last all season and certainly were not factors
in the losses to St. Martins, Simon Fraser and
Alaska!
When a team with the personnel that the
Birds possessed this year finishes with an 11-
13 won-lost record the coach must come under
scrutiny.
Peter Mullins seemed at pains to find the
reason for the losses during the season as he
referred constantly to the team's inability to
score.
Agreed Peter, but why couldn't they score ?
The possibility of a subtle dissension on the
club can't be ruled  out as a cause of death
either.
The fact that there was so much depth
at each position was a  consistent source oi
frustration for many individuals whom, upon
making a mistake, would find themselves on
the   bench.
Hence the players found themselves operating under conditions whereby they were
constantly competing with their teammates for
playing time.
The retirement of Ed Suderman from the
club before the season started is another indication of this problem, as his presence -would
have meant six forwards; enough for two
teams.
However the reason given for Suderman's
decision to quit was that "he just didn't want to
play," presumably because he would not have
the time due to his work in law school.
However, he did find the desire and the
time to play in the Senior Men's league.
Concerning individual performances there
were several understandable disappointments.
Ron Thorsen, after his brilliant start never
fully recovered from his arm ailment; Neil
Williscroft was just learning the ropes of college basketball and Bob Barrazuol played magnificently both at the beginning and the end
of the season but was slowed for two months
with the flu.
" Other reasons include the continuing story
of poor fan support and the general policy
towards athletics of both the Athletic Department and the University as a whole.
Another phase of the club is the hierarchical
relationship between the coach and the players,
that is the fact that none of the players really
know coach Mullins as an individual; he is in
fact "the Coach".
Due to the combination of these problems,
the Birds had a season which was certainly up
and down, featuring victories over Portland
State and SFU but also losses to such mediocre
teams as California State, Lewis and Clarke and
St.   Martin's.
Maybe next year.
SOCCER
The Soccer Birds vaulted
past second-place Columbus into sole possession of first place
in the Pacific Coast Soccer
League on Saturday at Callister Park.
The Birds beat New Westminster 2-0 on goals by Gary
Thompson  and  Jim Briggs.
Briggs notched the insurance
marker three minutes into the
second half with a trundler
that found the far corner. "It
came at a very opportune
time." said coach Joe Johnson.
Goalie Barry Sadler had no
trouble in recording his twelfth
shutout of the year, and is now
only one shy of the league
record.
Speaking of soccer and the
soccer team, the team decided
that they like the Teacup football game, so they thought
they would organize a spring
spring time version.
The game of course, will be
soccer.

AtwAL talk.
Sometime in March, the Men's Athletic Committee is going
to ask students for a raise in the athletic fee.
It is not the jocks as such who are doing this — the jocks
are in PE — the Men's Athletic Committee is the organization
which controls the disbursement of funds to the extramural
athletic program on campus.
They feel that in recent years they have had to cut out too
many sports, or cut them down to minimum grants, just to balance their budget. This, they do not agree with, because they
really want to have an all round program, for as many people
as possible.
This includes the women's program, as* administered by the
Women's Athletic Directorate, as well as the intramural program,
which is run by students and a faculty advisor from the school
of Physical Education.
For thd men, this increase will go towards providing more
than just a token budget for the so called minor sports, such as
judo, skiing, curling, cross country, fencing, track and field and
gymnastics and many others.
In some cases this money is required to allow these teams
to compete in the Canadian Intercollegiate Athletic Union, while
in others it is just to take the financial burder^ off the athletes
themselves who are now paying to compete for the university
out of their own pockets.
The last fee increase for athletics twelve years ago included
a section for intramurals, but over the interim period, that got
lost in the wheels of bureaucracy. This year, under a capable
advisor and staff, the intramurals program has really started to
roll, but they are still strapped for funds.
Their problem is that they must supply equipment, for all
sports as well as the facilities for the competitions. To do this,
in the case of sports like hockey and curling they must rent
the Thunderbird arena, and then pay referees to come out and
work. They feel that these conditions are necessary and important for the sports, but as the situation is at the moment, in
case of these sports, they have to charge the competing individuals extra to play.
If a fund increase was successful, then the intramural budget would be sufficient, and they might even hire a full time
director, who could organize and run a program even larger
than this year's.
For the extramural athletes, the situation is even darker
without the money, and brighter if the referendum passes. Now
teams like the swim team, and hockey team who do well in
Canadian competition have to rent facilities to train in, while

BADMINTON
The UBC Bird fiends, the
Badminton team, won the
Western Canadian Inter - collegiate Athletic Association
Championships last weekend in
Calgary.
The mens team was led by
Vic Connelly who lost only one
match to the Canadian Senior
Champion, Jamie Paulsen.
Mike Jameson, Ken Larsen
and Kee Sin Quan were the
other members of the mens
team.
The winning women were
Sandra Kolb, Margaret Pallot,
Linda Westlund and Jane Bu-
bord.
TRACK & FIELD
Both mens and womens track
teams came away from the
WCIAA championships in Winnipeg with team victories.
The mens team won by a
twelve point margin over the
University of Saskatchewan
and the women by a mere three
points over the University of
Manitoba.
For   the  men,   Ray   Steven
son got a double win with
victories in the long and triple
jumps, while Dave Aune broke
the 600 yd. record to win that
race and Ken Witzke took time
off from volleyball to win the
shotput event.
The distance men, Tom Howard and Bob Tapping came
second and third respectively
in the one mile event and then
reversed   coming   fourth   and
second in the two mile.
For the women it was Ann
Covell, UBC's own Olympian,
and Betsy George winning two
events each.
Covell picked up victories in
the 60 yd. and 300 meter events
getting records in both.
George, won the 60 meter
hurdle in a record breaking
performance and won the long
jump also.
from pg. 10 SPORTS TALK
other teams like the judo, or gymnastics, are limited to maybe
one competition away from UBC by their budgets, and possibly
the chance to hold a competition on campus to get some competition here at home.
The fee increase would allow the teams which were first
mentioned more time to practise, because they would have more
money to rent more facility time, while in the second case, the
teams would be able to compete against better competition, or
at least Canadian competition.
It must be pointed out that this does not mean, that any
group, football team included, will be galavanting around thej
country on your money. It means that your money will be going to provide a better all round training and competion program at UBC for all the student athletes, from archers to
yachters.
Right now UBC has the lowest per capita athletic grant for
all universities in Canada. In some places the money for athletics, which comes out of fees for athletics is over $50 (St. Francisj
Xavier University anyway!). The national average is seventeen
and now UBC's is five. With all the problems in this province
about financing higher education, I can see that possibly it
would not be in the best interests of the students to go that
high, because it would be taking money from other as important
activities, but for the sake of a good many of students, it is
important that this referendum pass.
Get out on March and vote for a better all round athletic
program at UBC.
