Array SUB lease dispute ends
The long dispute over the
agreement by which the Alma
Mater Society leases SUB from the
administration is almost over.
A final compromise hammered
out between AMS and administration negotiators was
approved unanimously by council
Wednesday and awaits only board
of governors approval later this
month.
And board negotiator Paul Plant
said after council's action that he
fully expects the board to approve
the compromise.
The dispute which began almost
with the opening of SUB in 1967
heated up in March when in
response to administration refusal
to provide adequate security and
maintenance in the building, the
AMS council voted to seek legal
advice and in the meantime close
SUB for the summer.
The AMS never did resort to
legal action to force lease arbitration (SUB re-opened in late
August) and instead negotiated
with the board of governors to
produce an agreement rejected at
a September meeting.
The compromise passed Wednesday grants most AMS demands
while removing a contentious
paragraph which would have given
the administration 10 per cent of all
SUB booking revenue.
Opponents of the first agreement
argued that giving the administration 10 per cent would set a
bad precedent by giving it a foot in
the door from which to increase its
cut.
Otherwise the agreement grants
more proctors for SUB, administration agreement to pay for
repair of many building fixtures
and a flat $5,000 to cover furniture
repairs.
In return the administration gets
a priority on all SUB conventions
booking during the summer,
though the AMS can back out of
this clause any time with 30 day
notice.

MYSTERIOUS THING appeared a couple of days ago outside the
Buchanan building. So far we have been able to establish that it's not
a flying saucer or the home of a student waiting for a place in
residence.  It's not Wally Gage's replacement as president nor is it
—peter cummings-photo
Gerald Ford. It's not a new item on the food services menu or next
year's Students' Coalition candidate for treasurer. But what it is, we
haven't figured out yet. Any suggestions?
The administration also gets a
'finders fee' — 10 per cent of the
revenue of all bookings it solicits
for the AMS.
Treasurer John Wilson told
council the finders' fee is
preferable to the flat 10 per cent of
all bookings because it sets no
precedent.
"The percentage of all revenue
would have been only $400 this
year, but the principle is the main
question," he said.
A letter will also be sent to the
board informing it the society
agrees to pay for any extra
maintenance it requests for special
events in SUB.
AMS negotiator Bob Angus, the
council graduate studies
representative, told council
removal of the bookings cut
redresses the main fault of the
September agreement.
But Angus, who was appointed to
the negotiation team after council
turned down the first agreement,
said he still has some reservations

"I guess we'll just have to trust
them."
A legal opinion which the AMS
requested after rejecting the first
agreement said if the society were
to resort to legal arbitration it
would win some points but might
lose on others.
"Basically they said you'll win
some, you'll lose some," Wilson
told council.
Angus also attacked the legal
opinion which he said was worth
very little.
He said the opinion really didn't
say anything and in several
passages simply reprinted directly
from law books.
Angus said he favors not paying
the bill for the opinion, which
society lawyers have estimated
will cost $500.
The legal opinion also estimated
the cost of arbitration would be
$2,500 to $2,600.
The dispute began soon after the
lease for SUB was signed in 1967
(students paid for arid control the
building but lease the land from the
administration).
At that time the AMS had asked

"I just wish they'd go away."
This was guitarist Bob Hadley's
opinion of the mass democracy
meeting held Wednesday noon in
the SUB mall by Palestinian
students and Communist Party of
Canada (Marxist-Leninist)
members to protest Israel
♦aggression in the Middle East.
Hadley, who plays regularly in
the mall, told The Ubyssey he was
uncertain whether the meeting
offered him any competition.
But when asked about his own
political views on the conflict,
Hadley said he hadn't had the time
^o form an opinion yet.
AOSC receptionist Wendy Leach
said the meeting had no effect upon
the AOSC's business, but the noise
from the meeting was disturbing.
"I find it hard to talk on the
telephone when the meeting is
going on just across the mall," she
said.
The AOSC office is adjacent to
0 the area where the meeting was
being held.
"Often Bob Hadley's playing will
attract customers to our end of the
mall," Leach said. "Meetings like
this do the opposite."
The meeting itself ended in the
same manner as it began — in
dribs and drabs.
The meeting began
unassumingly enough with CPC
(M-L) member Dougal McDonald,
who refused to give his name to the
Ubyssey, clarified the Middle East
situation for the benefit of the 50-
odd people attending.
Reviewing Israel's record as an
aggressor "right from its first day
in 1947," McDonald described
Israel's claim of all rights to the
aggressor and no rights to the
aggressed.
He told the masses the United
States was using Israel as a watchdog. "You set up a watchdog and
then send it around to do your work
for you," he said.
He told them of the third world.
"Recently, the Zionists have
become more isolated in the eyes
of world opinion. The ordinary,
non-aligned countries are uniting
against Israel.
"The same countries are uniting
against the United States," he said.
He     drew     the     customary
analogies between Israel and Nazi
Germany and told the crowd the
U.S. and the Soviet Union were
involved in the crisis to serve their
own ends.
After finishing his speech, which
bore a nearly perfect resemblance
'to a newsletter CPC(M-L) members had previously distributed,
McDonald called for questions
from the audience.
The crowd rose from bemused
interest to a mumbling crescendo.
Several people suffering from
rhetoric poisoning argued with
McDonald over the moral difference between Palestinians
using Soviet weapons and Israelis
using American weapons.
McDonald told the questioners
they were mystifying the issue.
"It's   strictly   a   question   of
aggression and non-aggression,"
he said.
A Palestinian in the audience
recounted the story of the camel
who pleaded for shelter in the
camel driver's tent and gradually
took the tent over. The allegory
was not well received.
Meanwhile the quiet strains of
Bob Hadley's guitar could be heard
in the distance.
Rip-offs investigated
The Ubyssey learned Monday the RCMP have
been called in to investigate the alleged bookstore tip-
off caper and charges may be pending in the case
which netted thieves more than $2,000 in the past two
months.
Tuesday's issue of The Ubyssey revealed the
bookstore's new refund system which could easily be
beaten for untold profits.
An anonymous tipster said he and 10 friends had
discovered a way to buy a book, return with the sales
slip and another copy of the same book from the
shelves and take it to the refund desk for their money
back.
Bookstore manager Bob Smith said Wednesday
they have an idea who stole the books but declined to
say if any action will be taken against them.
The rip-off artists were discovered by gathering
book return receipts and comparing them with class
enrolment lists. Smith said people buying biology
texts when they are enrolled in religious studies are
suspect because they wouldn't have any need for the
texts.
•   Smith said students would absorb all the losses
through increased book prices next year.
He said he and his five superiors who let him
introduce the scheme "over their dead bodies" are
very upset about the rip-off.
Needless to say a new book return system will be
instituted next year. Page  2

specific repair, maintenance and
security clauses be included in the
lease but the administration told
them it wasn't necessary.
But as vandalism in the building
increased the society pressed for
increased services only to be
turned down.
When the dispute finally got to
the negotiation stage in June the
administration decided to use the
operation to include a package
conventions deal which the housing
administration had long sought for
financial reasons.
Negotiator Plant insisted the
revenue percentage was included
only to help cover the cost of the

Exposure
By ART SMOKENSKY
Intrigue is now swirling around who the NDP
government will appoint to the UBC senate.
The Social Credit appointee Chuck Connaghan
is up for either re-appointment or replacement
and sources in Victoria assure me his replacement
is a 100 per cent certainty.
Connaghan is also one of the three senate
members who sit on the Board of Governors so
there will be a board vacancy to fill as well.
This will necessitate a by-election to select
another senator to sit on the board.
A likely candidate for the board seat is student
senator Svend Robinson who was narrowly
defeated in his last attempt to get on the board
from senate. Robinson is a strong candidate due to
both the change in the mood of senate because of
new faculty senators, and his own hard working
performance on senate.
If we are to gather any significance from the
NDP's recent appointment of Gene Errington, a
former anthropology student and women's activist, as superintendent of schools, Connaghan's
successor on senate will likely be a recent woman
graduate.
Further speculation would include Shelagh Day
or Anne Petrie. Long-time campus politico Stan
Persky, now working with the Mental Patients
Association is also a possibility.
Indications from Victoria are that the NDP is
interested in redressing the imbalance between
the sexes in all university governing structures.
They hold in esteem the recent report on the status
of women at UBC (author Shelagh Day) released
last spring.
As well, rumors indicate UBC sociology
professor Dorothy Smith is probably the government's next appointee to the Simon Fraser board
of governors.
Smith is very outspoken and has done extensive
studies on the standing of women in the university
setting. She was also involved in the departmental
struggle two years ago which ended in the more or
less firing of two popular teachers, Matthew
Speier and Ron Silvers, and eventually led, at
least partially, to the resignation of Cyril Belshaw
as department head this year. .

Rennie of the feet of Maharaj Ji
Greatest show on earth
By LINDA HOSSIE,
The general co-ordinator of the greatest
event in the history of the world played to a
nearly full house in SUB auditorium Monday.
Rennie Davis, Chicago seven defendent,
organizer of Mayday in Washington in 1971,
leader of the JOIN community organization
project in Chicago and well known cog in the
new left wheel, has received the knowledge
of the 15-year-old perfect master Guru
Maharaj Ji and was on campus to give
satsang or truth giving to devotees and
unwashed alike.
"Guru Maharaj Ji gives his knowledge to
anyone who seeks it — anyone who wants
it," a covey of reporters, radio men and
television cameramen were told by eager
premie (disciple) Maria McEvenue at an
early abortive press conference in the
Divine Light Mission on Fourth.
Davis, fogged in at the San Francisco
airport, was not there as advertised to speak
about Millenium '73 but the devotees carried
on manfully for 20 minutes before revealing
it.
Millenium '73, "the greatest event in the
history of the world" is a huge jamboree to
take place in the astrodome in Houston, Tex.
Nov. 8, 9, 10.
According to the devotees of GMJ this
event will herald 1,000 years of world peace.
The festivities will begin with Soul Rush, a
mass pilgrimage of devotees from
Plymouth Rock, down the eastern seaboard
of the United States, through several
historic cities to Houston.
Jumbo jets will fly devotees in from all
over the world. Every hotel in Houston,
except one, has been rented so devotees will
be able to stay free of charge.
About 140,000 persons are expected and a
world-wide media hook-up will allow the
event to be broadcast internationally.
When GMJ intends to reveal his practical
plan for world peace and the subtlety of his
knowledge, he doesn't fool around.
Convert
So who is this Rennie Davis, anyway?
Well, now. He's the general co-ordinator
of Millenium '73, the vice-president of the
Divine Light Mission, founded in 1960 by the
, GMJ s father Shir Hans Ji Maharaj — also a
perfect master, and he's a soft spoken,
apparently sincere convert to the ways of
the knowledge of the guru.
Davis's lecture in SUB auditorium opened
with the recorded music of GMJ's elder
brother's band, Blue Aquarius, "God is love
and love is God, God is truth and truth is
peace" with a rock beat and good old hand-
clapping, foot-stomping participation from
the devotees, who knew all the words.
#
Annie Bishop, who travels with Davis and
sings at GMJ's programs too, sang three
songs in praise of the guru: "Is there truly a
master plan, can this planet be saved by
man?"
Then, after a long pause, Davis began to
speak, slowly, almost painfully, not about
Millenium '73, but about the knowledge of
the Guru Maharaj Ji.
* Red alert
"If ever there was a time for a general
alarm ... a red alert for human civilization
... it seems to me ... people feel that time ...
is now.
"The deepest bitterness threatens to suck
the whole world into world war three.
"The stakes are so high — the stakes of
oil, power, territory.
"The democratic regime in Chile has been
brutally oppressed by the military.
"The crisis is so vast the Gallup poll shows
most people in America think we're not
going to make it at all."
In a weary voice Davis told of his travels
across America where everyone from
airline stewardesses to people in laundromats said they don't know what's going
on.
"It's like a whole people caught in an
incredibly   narrow   tube   with   the   tube
RENNIE DAVIS AND FRIEND.
stretched out so no one can see what's at the
end," Davis said.
White light
And his conversion, his receiving the
knowledge of Guru Maharaj Ji?
"When I think about it honestly, if the
situation had been reversed, (if another
member of the Chicago seven had received
the knowledge) I can't imagine being
anything but incensed.
"I would have imagined every conceivable possibility except the impossible
one. That it's true."
Obviously this is some inside joke. The
devotees chuckled up a storm at Davis'
confessions.
"It sounds even worse than a religion,"
Davis continued.
"Right on!" an audience member
shouted.
Davis described the "very intense, very
brilliant, very clear, white light" the
devotees see inside their heads and
discussed the scientific theory that the
pineal gland is behind this vision, that the
body of a meditating devotee actually undergoes a psychological change where the
glands that secrete in situations of fear and
anger are affected.   .
"This is not a faith or a belief. It's a direct
experience," Davis reiterated throughout
his talk.
"Everything I say here can be verified."
—don peterson photo
.the little one and his master
Davis said according to the teachings of
GMJ, the mind creates the world we live in.
"We must turn to the problem of the mind.
And if civilization is to save itself there must
be a complete overhaul of the mind. The
Guru Maharaj Ji has the strategy and the
tool to carry out that strategy," Davis said.
Davis said the one vibration or pure
energy at the centre of creation and at the
centre of every individual being is called
primordial vibration.
"The body is precious because it can
directly experience and know this'life, "he
said.
"It's only purpose is to experience this
vibration.
"If you unplug your mind from its ego and
plug it into the vibration that created you,
the intelligence of the creation will flow
through you."
Cream pie
Pockets of resistance to Davis' ideas
cropped up in varying degrees of violence
throughout the audience composed largely
of devotees:
Why is the knowledge of the Guru
Maharaj Ji different from the knowledge of
Jesus? What about the devotees who killed a
man for throwing a cream pie in GMJ's face-
in Detroit? How old is the Guru Maharaj Ji,
really? What about the smuggling charges
laid against GMJ for bringing a case full of
money and jewels into India?
At a press conference after the satsang in
SUB, Davis said he doesn't see any
argument between someone who sees God
through Jesus and someone who sees God
through Guru Maharaj Ji.
"Guru Maharaj Ji says: 'I have not come
to establish a new religion or sect, but I have
come to give you knowledge of truth ... Jesus
gave this knowledge, Krishna gave this
knowledge, but now we must look again for
the new master to show us the light'," a
Divine Light Mission leaflet reads.
Davis said he deplored the murder of the
man in Detroit.
When the pie was thrown, Guru Maharaj
Ji said he wanted to apologize to the man
and asked that no one hurt him, Davis said.
"Anyone got a pie?" someone yelled.
Davis also said the smuggling charges
may have been laid against the guru
because he is so powerful in his affect on
people that the government of India considered him a threat.
"Members of the Indian parliament have
even said this," he said.
Davis answered charges against Guru
Maharaj Ji's accumulation of wealth by
saying the houses, cars, jewels and airplanes do not really belong to him. They are
gifts from devotees.
He keeps them to show the valuelessness
of material things, Davis said.
"The Guru Maharaj Ji has said: 'Don't
judge what I am until you have received
what I can give you'," Davis said.
Davis continually implored people to
"check out" the claims of the devotees
before condemning them.
"If it came over the news that Jesus was
back and He was going to deliver the sermon
on the mount everyone would empty out of
their houses to check it out," he said.
Answering a charge that the Divine Light
Mission was filled with fascistic mentalities,
Davis said all kinds of people have been
attracted to the movement.
"Our minds may not like the idea that God
is omniscient, omnipresent but people
should overcome these mental blocks," he
said.
Four-year-old
Annie Bishop's four-year-old son, Tristen,
brought the meeting close to an end when he
stood up and led everyone in a chorus of
"When the Saint's Go Marching In".
The Guru Maharaj Ji says we should all be
like children, according to earlier testimony
of Davis', and the devotees joined Tristen
with enthusiasm.
•The thrust of Davis' arguments was anti-
rational. He said he didn't know why Guru
Maharaj Ji was playing games with peoples'
minds.
He responded to questions about social
responsibility by reaffirming the value of
receiving the knowledge of Guru Maharaj
Ji.
In short, if you do not have the knowledge
you do not understand. If you have received
the knowledge, questions dealing with social
issues evoke genuine smiles and laughter,
as premies showed during the evening.
The Divine Light Mission is a vast enterprise. It is legally incorporated in 31
countries. It has established Shri Hans
productions and Shri Hans publications to
spread the good word. In 1972 Guru Maharaj
Ji established a World Peace Corps in
America.
A slick, professional magazine called And
It Is Divine, the Divine Light Dance Ensemble and Divine Stores for recycling
unused articles are all part of the
movement.
Shri Hans Humanitarian Services provide
medical services to communities.
Shri Hans Aviation operates a single-
engine Cessna Cardinal RG and a twin-
engine Cessna 340 out of Riverside Calif.
There's no argument like success. The
devotees of Guru Maharaj Ji claim to be
happy.
And for the non-believers, all understanding must wait until you have
received knowledge.
As GMJ himself said: "If you come to me
with a guileless heart, you will surely
receive this most ancient spiritual
knowledge which, if practised upon, will
give us perfect peace of mind." Page 4

Cosmic fascism
grabs left
In days of old when the New Left was really new, rock
music, breakfast cereals, religion and comic books were
denounced for taking people's minds off The War and The
Struggle.
Now it appears all are acceptable, if not important, no
longer worth denouncing because Vietnam and the
campuses have died, fizzled away, gone off the front pages.
Rock music, always big, is bigger, former radicals can
be seen buying Wheaties in supermarkets, hustlers
manipulate the value of comic books like a penny stock on
the exchange and religion is back — in a big, brash, youthful
manner.
Jesus freaks and mystics compete for the attention of
'drinkers, dopers and shoppers in the downtown of every
North American city.
However, Guru Maharaj Ji, a 15-year-old rolly-polly
font of all knowledge, goes further.
This flat-nosed, pimple-less punk wants everyone's
attention — now.
Those who don't join his Divine Light Mission
movement will miss out on the Knowledge (with a capital
K) and, even worse, get it in the end. They could come back
as pigs or goats.
This greasy guru, complete with his Rolls Royce, jets
and minibikes, can only be tolerated as an example of the
type of person to be avoided.
Rennie Davis, one of the guru's principal North
American disciples and a former New Left heavy, was on
campus Tuesday evening with the word. Ubyssey reporter
Linda Hossie's story is on page 3.
To watch Davis in action was incredible. To see the
disciples or premies from the Vancouver DLM chapter was
frightening.
Davis would smile as a member of the audience would
ask, either politely, rudely or cynically, a question. He
would then answer, with great pauses, as if the audience was
a collection of children who seek to know what is right.
As Davis explained the truth, the premies were even
more gross, laughing at the audience and the disbelievers.
They were content and knew the truth.
The guru's movement destroys a person's will to think
and to do.
Instead of dealing with questions and criticisms in an
objective, rational manner, laughter is used to put down the
disbeliever.
It is cosmic fascism, using laughter and the promise of
bliss to promote the power and ego of the guru and his
mountain-top family.
The Divine Light Mission is authoritarian, just the
antidote for all the New Left types like Davis and the brainy
kids of the '60s tired of directing their lifes and seeking
some kind of direction.
They have their uniform — smartly-cut suits for men,
long skirts and high shirts or sweaters for women — their
daily duties, their chants and their ceremonies. They are
controlled — for and by the leader.
It is a creepy movement, a road to bliss that people
should avoid.
The only truthfully liberating movement is a collective
where people can think and do without answering to The
Man and his power. A blissed-out Rennie Davis, unlike
many people in the New Left when it was really new, isn't
going to see this.

Letters
Loomes
Mr. Angus couldn't be more
right. The real enemy is
capitalism. It was said in more
detail in the Speakers' Newsletter
but I'll say it briefly here. No
matter how much students want to
learn and then do something
useful, they're faced with an
economy geared to the needs of
capital, not people. And that is a
very major problem for us as
students and future "citizens".
Of course improving food services, keeping tuition fees down,
getting tax deductions for textbooks are good ideas, as far as they
go. The implicit suggestion,
however, is that they all add up to
something. But, they don't add up
to an overall change in the nature
and purposes of our "education".
And that's a question the Alma
Mater Society as a whole has
gotten further and further
removed from.
The most significant and far-
reaching program we can set
ourselves is an investigation into
this overall problem of education
for whose benefit?
Many students are currently
engaged in forming departmental
unions. These have the potential
for developing serious discussion
amongst students on questions of
course content. They can also
allow students to organize their
own education, outside the
classroom (faculty can be invited
to participate) on any issue, but
where there's a chance to raise
real questions one has. For
example, the speakers committee
has established a series of Friday
night discussions in SUB in
preparation for a program on the
political economy of Canada.
Professors and students are invited to present their ideas on some
aspect of this topic. Last Friday,
discussion lasted four hours.
Educational programs of this type,
developed by various departmental unions, could make a good
contribution to developing some
enthusiasm on this campus. The
idea, of course, is that questions
first raised outside will be taken
back into the classroom. We
shouldn't have to live double lives.
One reason we should direct
ourselves to the question of what
kind of society does our education
serve is the intimate connection
between the "meaning" of
education and the eventual use
made of knowledge. Secondly,
these other problems often
presented    as    "realistic"    or
"practical" such as food costs,
tuition fees, etc. are part and
parcel of:
1. the character of the economy
i.e. the main reason for the 10 per
cent food price increase this
summer was the general inflationary situation; the financial
problems of SUB — and the dispute
with the administration — are
similarly a result of inflation.
2. the role of the state in relation
to the monopoly capitalist
economy i.e. educational spending
is based on the manpower needs of
this economy, that is, the manpower needs of capitalism. It's
important to understand that the
NDP is not changing this.
The idea here is that students
will eventually organize themselves into alliance with the
working class against the
monopoly capitalists and their
state machinery. At least, that's
my idea because I think it's the
only way to make our education
meaningfully useful. The present
choice is self-interested pursuit of
a career and ignore the fact that
people are damned unhappy as
well as faced with inflation,
housing problems, pollution, job
insecurity, etc.
At this point, it seems to me
many students do want serious
discussion and do want to build an
alternative to the present mess of
non-seriousness and loneliness.
We're pretty well fed up with
goofing-off, getting stoned (and
depressed) and drifting through
our courses out here. It'll be hard
work, but if we want the changes,
we'll have to make them ourselves.
Contrary to rumor, I have not
retired to any estates to feed
reindeer. I feed reindeer in a barn
on campus every morning so I can
1. eat
2. pay my rent.
I do have a fairly good grasp of
the real practical world, Mr.
Angus.

MUS bitch
As chairman of the music undergraduate society, I feel it
necessary to clarify some details
regarding Friday's article in The
Ubyssey.
While there is dissent in the
music department, the MUS has in
no way initiated the "planned
student protests" as was suggested
by The Ubyssey. Also, The
Ubyssey was remiss in not
specifying    that    the    alleged
prevention of "access to practice
and recreation in the old
auditorium" is in connection with
the music society (MUSSOC) and
does not directly involve the
students in the music department.
At the MUS general meeting
Friday, students voted to appoint a
committee to prepare a report on
the present aims of the music
department and to study student
grievances. It is our hope that this
action will help bridge the gap
which presently exists between
students and the administration in
the music department.
Murray Walker
chairman
music undergraduate society
The Ubyssey does not suggest. It
reports. It reported Eric Wyness,
MUS representative on Alma
Mater Society council, as saying
people in the department have
"reached their breaking points".
Hence the headline and the introduction on Friday's story.
Music students are the music
undergraduate society. It was not
Ubyssey which was remiss, but
Wyness for providing incorrect,
incomplete information. Instead of
bitching after the fact Murray, you
should keep a closer eye on your
executive—Eds.
Power
So now we've had our little power
play between the Alma Mater
Society and the Georgia Straight.
Our fine students' society is in
select company. It can forcefully
seize thousands of copies of
newspapers just as the Vancouver
city police have done.
At the same time their little
bureaucratic monopolistic pet The
Ubyssey can churn out pages of
defensive crap to rationalize this
move without mention of the other
party affected — the Straight.
So much for objective reporting.
We continue to be forced to
subsidize the paper and put up with
it as we do other marvels such as
the UBC bookstore.
We have heard the interests of
dollars and cents and parochial
petty institutional interests. So
much for progressive idealistic
youth.

Arab-Israeli
tragedy old
in Mid-east
By JOHN MATE
The latest flare up in fighting in the Middle East is first and foremost a
tragedy for both the Arab and the Israeli people. In this tragedy it is a painful
illustration of the fact that there has been no peace between the Israelis and the
Arabs. Under the conditions that-have existed since 1948 every ceasefire can only
mean a temporary absence of open warfare.
Now, more than ever before, as the young men of both sides are shedding their
blood and giving their lives in increasing numbers on the battlefield, it is important to maintain a balanced perspective of the roots, the realities, and the
possible solutions to the conflict. This is important so that further injustices and
suffering to either side may be prevented, and that a potential powder keg in
super power relations is diffused.
Historically, Israel was created out of the
national aspirations of East European
Jewry. These aspirations arose as one of the
Jewish people's answers to centuries of
suffering under Roman Catholic
Inquisitions, ghetto life, Polish feudal lords,
Russian Czarist programs, poverty, anti-
semitisim and discrimination. As such, the
Zionist program was truly a national
liberation struggle for the Jewish people.
Appropriately, the greatest support for the
Zionist movement came from the downtrodden Jewish masses in Czarist Russia,
' the unfortunate masses constantly being
scapegoated for the numerous ills of that
wretched country. The assimila.tionist,
more affluent jews of Western Europe were
a lesser force in the Zionist movement.
Coupled with the ideological roots, there
existed concrete economical and politcal
reasons why Jewish nationalism came to the
foreground precisely at the last half of the
19th century. These reasons were tied in
with the economic and political trends of
19th century Europe: the rapid development
of capitalism and the decline of feudalism
* resulted in the uprooting of millions of
people — Jews and non-Jews — from their
traditional occupations and capitalism
brought about modern day nationalism and
with it the rational for the colonization of the
underdeveloped areas of the world.
The Jews merely copied the examples of
their European neighbors.. Zionism was,
therefore, a Western Jewish answer to the
situation of the Jews; it was a natural
outgrowth of the milieu in which the Jews of
Europe found themselves.
Around the same time that Jewish
nationalism began to germinate, Arab
nationalism was also coming into being.
Arab nationalists this time had visions of
creating a great Arab State, which would
have encompassed present day Jordan,
Israel, Lebanon, Syria and Saudi Arabia.
Since 1905, all Arab diplomacy was based on
the concept of a united Arab State. Even the
widely celebrated 1919 pact between King
Feisal and Chaim Weitzman had at its roots
the creation of the Arab State. Feisal of
< Arabia agreed to Jewish immigration into
the area — not to the concept of the Jewish
State — only on the condition if it did not get
in the way of Arab nationalist aspirations.
Unfortunately for the Arab people, their
aspirations were frustrated by foreign
imperialist powers.
They did not, however, have at this time
the collective consciousness, the
technological ability and the political
organization to conduct such a struggle, and
rather unwisely, through poor leadership,
— they placed too much trust and consequently
too much of their own destiny into the hands
of those foreigners.
By the time the Jewish nationalist
movement began to take hold in Palestine,
the Arab nationalist movement had not
matured enough to effectively counter it.
From 1917 on the game in Palestine was:
which nationalist movement can
manipulate British imperialism better for
^*its own end gains and how can British imperialism keep Jews and Arabs at each
other's throats most effectively for the
benefit of Britain. The tragedy, of course,
was that two peoples had claims on the same
piece of territory, that both peoples were
ready to kill and die for the possession of
that territory and that no compromise
solution was ever seriously considered by
0 either side.
With the given realities of 50 years ago the
Arab claims on Palestine were considerably
more valid than that of the Jews. That
reality, however, has since changed
drastically. In 1948, the Jews managed to
proclaim statehood and established the
State of Israel. Largely because of the
Western orientation of the Zionist
movement, the Jews were more successful
in achieving their aims that the Arabs.
While they were out-numbered,
psychologically and in other ways the Jews
had a clear advantage. They brought with
them to Palestine the Western, racist and
supremacist attitudes that European
colonists carried to all parts of the underdeveloped world. This enabled them to
ignore the needs and wishes of the in-
degenous Palestinians.
With the establishment of Israel and the
surrounding circumstances, a large percentage of the Arab population of former
Palestine fled the country. These refugees
were never allowed to return, nor were they
ever compensated for their losses by the
Israelis. One society was replaced by
another, one society displaced another. The
Jewish nationalist movement was successful and the Arab people were dealt a
severe blow.
Since 1948, the Israelis have managed two
more major victories against the Arabs,
once in 1956 and again in 1967. In the 1967
Six-Day War the Israelis managed to
conquer more Arab territory by gaining
hold of the Golan Heights, Jerusaleum, the
West Bank of the Jordan River, the Gaza
Strip and the Sinai Peninsula.
What is the reality of today, the reality of
the present. The reality is twofold: there is
the reality of the Israelis and the reality of
the Arabs, and more specifically that of the
Palestinians.
Israel exists, it is real. It has its own
economy, its own class system, its own
political system, its own infrastructure.
Jews comprise most of Israeli society, from
the lower to the upper classes. For the
Israelis, in every segment of Israeli society,
Israeli is very real. Arab and leftist
arguments that claim that Israel was artificially created by Western imperialism
and therefore it is artificial and should be
destroyed by force are not in touch with the
present. Today, Israel is no more artificial
than any other nation state in the world. The
majority of her population was born in
Israel and knows no other identity than
Israeli. All of the territory of Israel proper is
filled with the energies of her present
population, and just like all other people, the
Israelis are dedicated to preserving
themselves.
Of course, also part of Israel's reality is
the fact that it is surrounded by hostile
neighbors, that is is holding on to territory
that does not belong to it, and that the
Palestinians and the rest of the Arab people
have legitimate demands on it which they
are prepared to support with actions. Most
Israelis and most of World Jewry would
prefer not to recognize and accept the
reality of the Palestinian people, their plight
and struggle. In fact, the official Israeli
policy during the past 25 years has been to
try to ignore the existence of the
Palestinians and thus dismiss their
legitimate claims. Even since 1967, when
Israel through her victories came into a
position whereby it could have made concessions that may have led to an overall
settlement, its arrogant attitude towards the
Arabs prevailed. Quite recently, Israeli
prime minister Golda Meir was asked to
comment on the Palestinian problem, and
she was quoted to say: "Who are the
Palestinians? Show me Palestine on the
map."
A couple of weeks before the present war
broke out, the Israeli cabinet passed a
resolution to incorporate all the captured
territories and Moshe Dayan unveiled a plan
to build a city — the size of Tel Aviv — on
Egyptian soil. It is precisely this type of an
intransigent and arrogant attitude on the
part of the Israelis that has given rise to the
Palestinian guerrilas and helps to maintain
the conflict between Israel and her Arab
neighbors.
The reality of the Arab people, on the
other hand, is that they have been defeated
three times, they have lost large chunks of
territories, and they have been ridiculed and
laughed at by the rest of the world. The
reality of the Palestinians is that they live in
refugee camps as the beggars of the United
Nations and other Arab governments. That
they can not provide sufficient food, clothing
and shelter for their children. That a whole
generation of them was born and raised
under autrocious conditions in the camps.
Their experience of the past 25 years have
taught them that unless they help themselves the world is quite prepared to keep
them tucked away in their death-ridden
environment for the future. Death and
desperation is now the greatest part of the
Palestinians' reality. The rest of the Arab
people have also learned that it is up to
themselves to win back their lost territories,
that the United Nations is ineffectual in
bringing them results.
Also part of the reality of the Arabs is the
existence of Israel and the existence of
Israeli society. Israel is there and it must be
clear to the Arab leaders that they will have
to pay an extremely costly price to try to
destroy her.
While it may seem naive to think of
. peaceful solutions to the Middle East conflict in the midst of the gravest war, now is
precisely the time to search for solutions.
The lack of recognition and the lack of acceptance by both sides of the other's reaiity
is the greatest obstacle in the way of a
peaceful settlement. Before there can be
peace, the Israelis and the Arabs will have
to meet each other. They will have to listen
and hear one another, and most important,
to feel, trust and accept each other.
Trust and acceptance, however, can not
be built on words, empty promises and
empty talk. Only action can give proof of
"good will". The first step, therefore, must
be an immediate ceasefire and cessation of
hostilities by both sides. If a ceasefire could
be reached before the Israelis push the
Egyptians back over the Suez, the war could
end with a "limited" victory for the Arabs,
with no immediate threat to Israel's
existence.
Through such a ceasefire the present war
could enhance the caUse of peace. On the one
hand, it could have a sobering effect on the
Israeli public, and on the other, it could
enable the Arabs to gain back some of their
lost pride and dignity, so that they could look
the Israelis straight in the eye from across
the negotiating table. For Israel, the loss
would be compensated by the possibility of
real peace talks.
Of course, both sides could also make the
mistake of not learning from this war. The
Israelis could use the war as another reason
for further expansion and tougher attitudes
towards the Arabs, instead of learning the
need for compromise and the Arabs could
use their limited victory as a base for further military moves with the ultimate aim of
destroying Israel.
From a long range perspective, it is more
essential for Israel than for the Arabs to find
a permanently-peaceful solution. In the long
run only Israel can lose, only Israel can be
destroyed. The Arabs may lose the present
war and the next one and the one after that,
but eventually, the Arabs will win.
The next step after the ceasefire,
assuming that there will be relatively little
change in the Middle East status quo is for
Israel to make a gesture of good will,
possibly by internationalizing the city of
Jerusalem. In return, the Arab States and
the Palestinians should respond by agreeing
to sit down to face to face talks with the
Israelis. The purpose of these talks would be
to arrive at a compromise settlement. In
any compromise there have to losses and
gains for all sides. In this case, the Israelis
will have to give up a lot. It is unlikely that
the Arabs will accept any settlement short
of the return of all the territories Israel
captured in 1967, and a final settlement of
the Palestinian refugee problem. The return
of the Golan Heights and the Sinai Pen-
ninsula could be achieved with the condition
that these territories are to be
demilitarized. This condition could satisfy
Israel's need for security. The settlement of
the Palestinian refugee problem could be
achieved with the establishment of an independent Palestinian State on the West
Bank of the Jordan. Israel would have to
help in the establishment of the Palestinian
State by paying adequate compensation to
the refugees for the properties they lost in
1948. The other Arab States and the rest of
the world would also have to share in the
financing of the new State. The Arab States,
in response to the return of the captured
territories, would have to accept Israel's
right to exist and to extend to it full
diplomatic   recognition.
It is possible that even the above outlined
compromise will not satisfy the Arabs. In
that case the Israelis would seriously have
to consider giving up the Zionist idea of a
Jewish State,' in exchange for a Jewish
"homeland" within a tri-national secular
state. This secular state would be comprised
of Jews, Moslems and Christians, with
proportional representation accorded to all.
While this compromise solution is highly
unrealistic, given the present circumstances, it is more feasible than the
continuation of all out wars and the eventual
annihilation of the Jews of the Middle East.
The Israelis have two clear choices:
either to continue with their policies of
power politics through military superiority
and thus face the eventual destruction of
their country or to find a compromise. The
Arabs, too, have two clear choices: either to
continue with their attempts to defeat Israel
through military means and thus face more
loss of Arab lives, more wastage of Arab
resources and more suffering for Arab
people, or to reach a compromise.
The first of these two choices will be
painful and tragic to both sides. Without a
proper compromise settlement, the Middle
East will certainly remain a source of
conflict and death for many years to come.

Engineers' new plan
Modify buses
By JAKE van der KAMP
The engineering undergraduate society wants to modify all B.C.
Hydro buses in the lower mainland to make them easier to ride in.
EUS president Craig Williams said Wednesday the society's project
this year is to facilitate getting off and on buses by modifying their
entrances and exits.
"It would really help old and handicapped people who are having a
lot of problems," he said. "It's hard for them to step on and off buses
especially when carrying parcels. This slows down buses besides being
a nuisance for them."
Williams urged all engineers to get involved. He was speaking to
about 150 people in the civil engineering building.
"This is going to be the only chance for some of you first and second
year people to do some real engineering," he said.
Project co-ordinator Phil Lockwood in introducing the actual plans
said the project, if fully carried out, would cost about $80,000.
"We've already got $5,400 from the UBC Transportation Centre and
we hope to raise the rest from industry and interested groups," he said.
Lockwood asked for volunteers to form three groups to do related
research on the project.
"The first group will be doing conceptual design and research on
proposed modifications. The second group will collect data by riding on
buses and video-taping people getting on and off.
"The third group will do a study on what physical changes can be
made to a bus without wrecking it," he said.
"These three groups will be getting together to discuss proposed
modifications and to do experiments with handicapped people and their
problems on buses."
Lockwood said as soon as all the preliminary work has been done a
regular bus will be modified and tried out on the downtown routes.
Lockwood said the changes would save money besides helping the
handicapped.
"For instance, experts say if buses in London England, spent one
second less at each stop the bus service would save 1.25 million pounds
(about $3.13 million) per year."
Lockwood said work would start immediately and hopefully
modified buses would be on the road this summer.
"If everything goes right we hope to have the first phase of the work
done by spring," he said.
"We're having some problems finding a place to work on the buses
though. Possibly we can get the empty building beside the electrical
substation (near Clot)," he said.
"We're not initially going to have any contact with B.C. Hydro," he
said. "They would probably influence us with their own ideas about
what should be done to buses and we'd rather do this on our own."
Lockwood said the EUS settled on the project when the Greater
Vancouver Regional District became interested in bus research.
"They didn't ask us to do it but they threw down the glove and we
picked it up.
"It's the same kind of project as the Wally wagon or the Canadian
conference of engineering students we held last year," he said.
The Wally Wagon is an award-winning urban design car built by the
engineers two years ago and named after administration president
Walter Gage.
"Primarily this is a social concern," Lockwood said. "We're trying
to make a transition from the old rabble-rousing days."
UEL committee
calls fer students
By BEN GELFANT
Students are needed for an Alma Mater Society committee being set
up to investigate what the NDP government intends to do with the
University Endowment Lands.
Doug Brock, AMS internal affairs officer, said Wednesday the
committee was authorized by an AMS council motion Oct. 10 requesting
a study of plans for the future development of the 1,700-acre lands.
Brock said he will pick the committee Monday and then a chairman
will be chosen from among the committee members.
The proposed 1973-74 budget lists a $500 grant for the committee to
send representations to the government and to publicize what will
happen to the lands.
The committee will go ahead even if the AMS budget committee
turns down their grant, an AMS spokesman said.
The committee is being formed in response to a recent announcement by minister without portfolio Lome Nicolson that a
government committee will be formed to plan future use of the lands.
"We will develop part of the University Endowment Lands (for
housing) but we're not going to develop it insensitively," he said
recently. "I think we can open it up recreationally too."
Many UBC groups and conservationists have opposed any
development of the property which houses bird nesting places.
Some UBC academics have even proposed a science city for the
area which according to them would complement the existing UBC
campus.
Brock said he hopes to send a lobby group to Victoria when the AMS
committee has assumed a position on the question.
Asked why he is choosing the committee, Brock said: "I took the
committee because I'm interested. Furthermore, development of the
lands in many ways effects the environment out here for us."
He said the committee will be mainly composed of students
however, everyone is welcome to participate. The shape of the committee will be clearer after Monday's first meeting, Brock said.
"We've already had a good response," he said. "I've had interested
people from architecture, agriculture and other faculties apply."

For those of us who drink
By KATHY BAIRD
The day of the 10 cent beer may well be
back.
The recent increase in the cost of alcoholic
beverages has made home brewing very
attractive to more and more people.
With the increased popularity it seems
possible a fermentation plant will soon be a
standard household appliance. If it does,
beer lovers can make the long lost dime
glass of beer themselves.
At one time the only people who made
*    their own brew were immigrants used to
home brewing in their native lands  and
- alcoholics. It certainly was not considered a
high class occupation with its only attribute
being the economical advantage.
The owner of Wine-Art Shop on Broadway,
Stanley (Andy) Anderson, agrees the low
cost is still a definite point in favor of home
brewing.
"Since the tremendous increase in the
cost of alcoholic beverages people think
twice about buying," says Anderson.
"Although wine is more economical to
make, home brew can be made for less than
one-half the cost of commercial beer. And
with practice the amateur brewer can actually produce beer that tastes better than
what he buys for twice the price."
However, cost is no longer the only attribute. As Anderson says:   "People  are
becoming more interested in experimenting
and in the challenge of producing better
,    beers and wines than they can buy."
Anderson believes the time factor tends to
make brewing more attractive to students
than wine-making. Beer takes six weeks, to
brew from start to finish, whereas wine-
making can take six months and often
longer for aging. The latter is more popular
with professional men who have time to
spend perfecting their hobby.
Prospective beer-makers usually start out
with a simple recipe, according to Anderson, and work their way up to more
f sophisticated types. A tremendous variety
of types of beer can be made at home, and
each involves relatively the same minimal
amount of effort. The procedure listed here
was obtained from a.home brewer (who
wishes to remain anonymous) and is a
"traditional home recipe". The prices
quoted are approximations from several
home brewing suppliers in Vancouver.
Traditional recipe culled from ye olde
brewer of yore:
This recipe will give you a general idea of
the cost and effort involved.
You will need a container. Our anonymous
home brewer prefers an earthenware crock,
but says, "plastic garbage pails may be
used if you really want to be economical."
Most brewing suppliers offer six gallon
fermentation vessels for approximately $3.
Other apparatus required are a one-
quarter inch plastic hose (approximately 20
cents), a bottle capper ($11), beer bottles
** (usually not hard to obtain) and a wooden
spoon. By the way, don't use metal utensils
while brewing because they tend to add
undesirable characteristics to the taste of
your beer. The total cost of the apparatus
listed here is $14.70.
The ingredients you will need are as
follows:
* A 2-1/2 pound can of malt concentrate
($1.25). "Hop flavored light tastes most like
commercial beer," says our home brewer.
•9
* Five to 10 pounds of sugar. The amount
used depends on the alcoholic content
desired. Five pounds of sugar (70 cents)
results in a beer of approximately eight per
cent alcoholic content by volume. Ten
pounds will yield 10-12 per cent alcohol.
* One package of Brewer's Yeast (20
cents). Our brewer warns against using
*bread yeast since the beer may end up
"tasting like wet bread".
* Two to three envelopes of gelatin (50
cents).
* Washing soda and chlorine bleach. No,
these are not ingredients.
The total cost of the apparatus and
ingredients listed here is about $18.
* A vital element of the beer-making
process is sanitation. Scrub and sterilize
your container thoroughly especially if it's a
garbage pail. A good cleaner or sterilant
would probably be a wise investment. If
your equipment is not properly sterilized
you may find strange organisms growing
along with your yeast.
After it is clean put your container on a
chair. This provides for much easier
syphoning later on.
Boil five gallons of water. This may be
I
Immediately after the fermentation has
ceased the beer should be clarified for
bottling. One word of caution at this point:
clarify and bottle your beer immediately
when fermentation has stopped unless you
have a need for a lot of vinegar.
Dissolve your two to three packages of
gelatin in a bowl of water then mix this into
your beer. This will settle most of the cloudy
yeast residue to the bottom of the container.
**:-■*■
ALL THE EQUIPMENT . . . needed for any our recipes.
more easily said than done. Empty the can
of malt into the container and add the
boiling water, using part of it to wash the
remaining sticky mess out of the malt can.
Stir the malt and water together thoroughly.
Add the amount of sugar you have decided
upon. Stir again, and allow the mixture
(called a "wort" at this point) to cool to
blood temperature (98.6 degrees
Farenheit). This is important because if the
temperature is much higher the yeast will
die when immersed in the liquid.
Scoop up a large cupful of the wort and
sprinkle the package of yeast into the cup.
Allow it to float on top for about 15 minutes,
then stir the contents of the cup into the rest
of your wort.
Cover the vessel with a tight-fitting lid and
move it to an area of relatively constant
temperature (65-75 degrees Farenheit).
Repeated chilling and heating is bad for the
development of the yeast.
Leave the mixture to ferment for four to
five days or until all bubbling and frothing
stops. Foam and scum that form on the
surface should be skimmed daily during the
fermentation process.
suck the sediment from the bottom of the
vessel into your bottles.
Apply caps with the bottle capper.
Store the sealed bottles in a cool place for
a minimum of two weeks or until the contents are clear. Your beer is now ready to
drink.
The process you have completed costs $18.
With the recent price increase to $3 a case,
this $18 would buy six cases. Six cases is 864
ounces of beer, or 6.75 gallons. The recipe
given here makes approximately six
gallons, which means the first time you
make beer you don't quite break even. Any
time after that, with the cost of apparatus
taken care of, you save 50 per cent.
As you can see, the whole process is
relatively simple.
"There are two things to remember," said
Anderson when asked if he had any advice
for prospective student brewers. "First, get
a good book, written within the last 10 years,
if possible in North America.
"Second, under no circumstances buy a
'kit' with a glossy-looking cover. Anything
that professes to be 'all you need to make
beer' and costs under $25 is simply slick
merchandising."
For all you lushes who wish to pursue the
subject, Wine-Arts is one of several shops in
Vancouver which cater to home wine and
beer-makers. Another is the Winemakers
Shop on Robson. Both offer equipment,
ingredients and books that will aid you in
your studies.

Clarification takes about one day, during
which you should be preparing your bottles.
Our brewer maintains that bottle-washing is
very important, again because of those
strange organisms waiting to infiltrate your
brew.
Anonymous washes his bottles in the
bathtub. To a tub full of hot water he adds
"sufficient washing soda and chlorine
bleach to smell strong and feel soapy". As
you have probably gathered the amount is
not of extreme importance and varies according to the state of your bottles.
After washing your bottles and assuming
your beer is clarified, arrange the bottles
around the container ready for syphoning.
Add about one-eighth teaspoon of sugar to
each bottle. This initiates the secondary
fermentation which occurs within the bottle.
When filling the bottles allow about 1-1/2
inch of headspace for expansion of the beer.
A friend of our brewer's forgot to do this
once and could not go into his cellar for two
weeks for fear of having his head blown off.
It is important to syphon from the top of
the liquid in your vessel. Otherwise you will

Wilson on AMS undergrads
Relations discussed
By KEN DODD
Communication should be improved between
undergraduate societies and the Alma Mater Society,
AMS treasurer John Wilson said Wednesday.
Wilson was commenting on the complaints about
the structural and financial relations of the two
bodies at a public budget committee meeting.
Wilson said he believes improved communication
could be achieved by a combination of constitutional
changes and changes in operating procedures.
"Two basic problems underline this problem," he
said. "Firstly, undergraduate presidents no longer sit
on council and secondly, no one on the AMS executive
really has the responsibility for co-ordinating events
on campus anymore."
Constitutionally the AMS co-ordinator is responsible for this but the co-ordinator's role has changed
drastically since SUB was built in 1968 and the AMS
vacated Brock Hall.
"Now the co-ordinator has a full-time job just
administering SUB and doesn't have time for these
other responsibilities," said Wilson.
Wilson suggested the constitution be changed so the
internal affairs officer could co-ordinate campus
activities rather than acting as the society's public
relations officer.
Wilson said he felt this move, plus having undergraduate society presidents sitting on AMS
council, will provide much needed communication
and would improve relations between the AMS and
the undergraduate societies. He said key members of
the groups involved would be working more closely
together.
Wilson said he feels this will cut down on current
duplication between undergraduate societies and the
AMS, ultimately reducing administration costs as
well.
Wilson said he thinks it necessary to have undergraduate society presidents on the AMS "because
they tend to know what is going on in the grass roots
of the faculties more than the reps on council."
Wilson also said he thought relations could be
improved if undergraduate society representatives
and club members were made more aware of how the
AMS office works. This would also cut down on administrative time, he said.
At Tuesday's finance meeting Gordon Turriff law
society representative on council complained
•members of the law executive and especially the
treasurer were frustrated in their job by AMS
members and employees doing tasks they could just
as easily do themselves.
Complaining, "we're not getting a good deal",
Turriff suggested to the committee societies and
clubs be given a straight grant by the AMS at the
beginning of each school year and be responsible for
administering the money.
"As it is now the AMS does all our accounting. This
leaves our treasurer strapped in his actions," Turriff
said.
At the meeting Wilson and finance committee
member Pemme Muir had expressed fear Turriff's
proposal would leave the AMS with liability yet little
supervision over the use of funds.
Wilson and Muir said this system was needed as a
necessary check and balance procedure.
However, Wilson said Wednesday he was considering Turriff's proposal.
"The idea is floating in my head that societies can
be given a straight grant but only if the treasurer is
accepted as the sole authority," he said.
"As long as they don't run into serious debt with us
perhaps they should be given the responsibility of
running their own show."
Wilson said he would discuss the proposal of future
finance meetings.
AMS president Brian Loomes said as long as implementing the proposal would mean reduced administration costs he would support it.
Wilson said he was disappointed at the low turnout
at Tuesday's meeting, which was held to allow
members of student societies and clubs on campus to
air their views on the proposed budget to members of
the AMS finance committee.
Only members of the commerce, arts, science,
agriculture and forestry undergraduate societies, the
law students society, The Ubyssey and the ontology
club were present at the meeting.
Representatives from arts and sciences, the two
largest faculties on campus, complained the budget's
proposed allocations to student societies
discriminated against faculties with large memberships.
Under the Palmer proposal which guides AMS
grants to student societies and clubs each society
governed by the AMS should receive $200 and 40 cents
per member.
The proposed budget allows the equivalent of 20
cents per head.
"It is impossible to effectively run functions in a
faculty as large as science on the amount of money
that is being proposed," said Steve Lober of the
science undergraduate society.
The proposed budget definitely favors smaller
faculties he said.
Muir, in nursing, defended the budget saying
smaller faculties were closer knit and the executives
were more responsive to their members needs and so
deserved grants disproportionate to their numbers.
Kim Pollock, arts representative on council said
arts and sciences could only improve their programs
if they were given more money.
Wilson said he doesn't think more money would
solve the problem though he admitted it wasn't really
fair not to give larger faculties a chance to show what
they could do with the increased funds.

Pampered and lazy students
By DON HUBBERT
The one thing that has
stood out in my mind about
UBC students is their total
lack of interest.
In anything. And it isn't
confined strictly to athletics.
Students here are
pampered, spoiled, lazy and
apathetic. It seems that
you've never taken the time
, to discover how lucky you
really are and how good
you've got it here at UBC.
Tuition, room and board,
and athletic fees are lower
here than at most other
universities. So is campus
participation. In everything,
that is, except the one area
'Gears

« Engineering I beat delta kappa
epsilon in the annual tug-o-war last

Beta theta pi was third with St.

placing fourth and fifth respectively.
The river run, which is a new
event, will be held on Oct. 28. It is
an eight mile air mattress or inner
tube race down the Vedder River.
Transportation and wet suits
should be supplied.
The contract mile is another new
event. Each runner or walker tries
to predict his finishing time. The
winner is determined by how close
his actual time coincides with his
estimated time.
Friday, 3 p.m., is the entry
deadline for soccer, the river run,
and the contract mile.
Due to the T-Cup game on
Thursday the arts 20 race has been

All badminton is cancelled until
the second term due to a shortage
of equipment.
Engineering ■ III won the cycle
drag Sunday. H. Harden and D.
Gill shared the win in the 50 lap
race. In a great individual effort,
H. Meisl Helmut representing
medicine, finished in second place.
" Women's
students     complain     most
about: athletics.
Between the intramural
and inter-collegiate programs
more than 5,500 students
participate, in one way or,
another. In spite of this most
students are against athletic
programs and increased
athletic fees. That is a totally
sports
inconsistent position.
An increase in athletic
fees would do a great deal
towards improving the
programs offered on campus.
If UBC had the national
average athletic fee of $16.75
a lot more could be achieved.
For one thing, it could do
away   with   that   thorn   in
everybody's side, including
mine, Recreation UBC. We'd
have the funds to obtain pool
time for the swim team and
to provide proper training
facilities for all students who
want to use them.
Obviously these are only
some of the things that could
be done with more money.
The     women's     intramural
program for this year has a wide
selection   of   activities   which
anyone may participate in.
The last game of flag football is

aren't yet punctual. If the team is
not assembled, the game will be
cancelled, therefore speed is of the
essence. Anyone who is not on a
faculty team but wishes to play
may come out on Monday night to
be placed on a team.
The   round-robin   soccer   tournament is this Sunday, from 10
^ a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Each team is
assured of at least two games
during the match.
The problem lies in obtaining
the funds.
Past example has shown
that student referendums are
useless as a method of
authorizing athletic fee
increases. The athletic
department must give serious
thought to alternate ways of
obtaining these badly needed
funds.
The sports staff recognizes
fully the need for and value
of a properly run athletic
program.
At the same time we
remind you of the previously
mentioned student attitudes
and urge you to give top
priority to finding a solution
to this problem.

New football league comes
By ALAN DOREE
There's a new pro football league coming in case
you haven't heard.
At incredible expense our sports department saw
one of the managers, Martin Bormann of the
Argentina Armadillos, to give you an insight into the
new operation.
Sports staff: Can you give us an insight into the new
operation?
Bormann: Football's gonna be exciting again.
SS: How?
B: Touchdowns are 20 points, field goals 12, converts 5. We have 6 downs, fields 50 yards long, passes
can be caught on two bounces, players don't have to
stay in bounds. We're expecting some fine grandstand runs.
SS: What about players?
B: We don't feel all the leagues have drained the
talent pool. Ha, ha. Drain. Pool. Get it?
SS: (Stifled yawn).
B: As I say, our players will know the basics. How
to smile at the camera, yell at refs, spike the ball
when things go wrong, pat each other's backsides
when things go well and maybe even do a little
huggin' n kissin'. Aw, there'll be something for
everybody in this league.
SS: Hm, what about defence?
B: We haven't forgotten that. Each team will get
one man on the sidelines with a .22 rifle to stop opposing runners, as long as it's a clean shot between
the hip and knee. Clean shot. Get it?
SS: Yes, well . . .
B: When someone scores, no throwing the ball in
the air stuff. We're gonna set the guy on fire and shoot
him over the stadium from a cannon. Yessir, this new
league's got class, schmaltz, pizzazz, real entertainment!
Letters
Since when is Rick Lymer the resident hockey
critic for the campus rag?
His closing sentence in Tuesday's column "The
goal of the resolutions is to . . . get rid of those
pseudojock assholes who can't follow organized
rules." How about checking out your story before
going to print?
The problem is not the players, but officials. A
letter being distributed at hockey games stating,
"Intramurals is not a 'hacker's league'. Hackers can
find some other area in which to display their
talents", is a bit of a joke.
The intramural program is administered by
students that are still five years behind the times as
far as the calibre of hockey goes on this campus. No
wonder there are injuries when third-rate officials
are sent out to first rate games.
We are out to win in hockey. It is not the players
fault that rough play occurs. Look at the NHL, there
is more rough play there than in intramurals yet,
intramural hockey is labelled a "hackers" program
for pseudjock assholes.
How about going out to a game then make an accurate assessment of the situation?

Would any coach worry about too
much talent on his own team?
Bob Hindmarch of the hockey
Birds does.
"My biggest problem is deciding
who to keep," he said Friday. We
have 134 boys trying out, the most
we've ever had and certainly the
most talented. It's going to be a
very tough decision."
Hindmarch feels this year's
Birds are the best skaters he's
ever seen. "They work hard too. I
think we're stronger at every
position."
He thinks they can equal or
better last year's second place
finish in the Canada West
University Athletic Association
standings. "Nearly everyone who
played for us then has returned,
including our top scorers."
Hindmarch worries about getting his talented crew up for their
exhibition games. "We're too far
from other CWUAA schools and
have too little money to meet our
.serious competition in preseason
play."
The team, selected after Friday
and Saturday night's intra-squad.
games, meets Powell River and
Fraser Arms before their season
opener with Calgary.

comment

1) If a student is academically
eligible to stay in school then I see
no reason why he should be
ineligible for athletics.
Most students are aware of the
penalty for failing a second time. It
seems to me that the athletic
eligibility committee is putting
penalties on individuals that the
admissions office does not.
2) They're off to a slow start, but
the cheerleading group are attempting to organize things for this
year. They meet on Tuesday night
at 6:30 in the War Memorial gym's
upstairs lounge. Let's see some
people turn out. Things aren't the
same at home games without
them.
3) Spirit on this campus is
terrible. On other campuses a
turnout of 3,000 is considered poor.
Here 400 fans is a large crowd. It's
a bloody shame and says a great
deal about the attitude of UBC
students. All for one and one is me.
4) Credit Norm Thomas with
having the guts to stick with the
rookie. The experience will help
next year. Page  12
