Array Frats under siege from college, gov't
By DAN MILLER
Frat row, long a haven of cheap
housing for students, is under
economic siege.
Two fraternities will be forced to
leave campus because the construction company that owns the
land has sold it to Regent College.
The Frank Stanzl Construction
Company sold the land on which
Phi Delta Theta and Phi Gamma
Delta fraternities are built.
And in another development,
fraternities will raise their room
rents because the provincial lands
department has reassessed leases
upwards of 150 per cent.
Jim Rutledge, vice-president of
Phi Delta Theta, and Kevin
Higgins, former president of Phi
Gamma Delta, said the two
fraternities would either rent
houses from the university or buy
houses off-campus.
Phi Gamma Delta will have to
leave premises on April 30. Phi
Delta Theta will leave in three
months.
"The university wants the
houses the frats are in to get more
office space, and they're
manoeuvering with the government to get them," Higgins said.
Higgins said that including the
two frat houses that are now being
forced out, the 10 fraternities on
campus have a capacity of 300 beds
which ease the housing crisis.
"If we are forced off-cam pus the
houses will definitely be smaller
and cost more," said Higgins.
Tim Allen, a Phi Gamma Delta
cabinet member, said: "The
houses are being turned into offices
instead of housing so UBC doesn't
have to pay property taxes."
There are  ten  fraternities   at
UBC. Four have been sold in the
last four years.
Most of the frat houses let their
rooms to any male students, with
no frat membership necessary.
Gerry Brach, house manager of
Sigma Chi, said: "One of the frats
was converted into a psychiatric
daycare facility. It must have cost
thousands of dollars to change it
over when the university could
have had some very cheap
housing.
"Our rent is $1080 for eight
months, which is very reasonable.
Other fraternities are around
$1,100," he said.
Regent College principal J. M.
Houston said in an interview
Monday the fraternity land was
bought for use as classrooms for
the college.

CUPE won't touch Led Zeppetin show
By RALPH MAURER
The 38-day-old labor dispute at
radio station CKLG will likely
result in the cancellation of the Led
Zeppelin concert scheduled for
March 19 and 20, unless the strike
is settled.
Dave Werlin, business agent for
the Canadian Union of Public
Employees local 1004, which
represents inside and outside
workers at the Pacific National
Exhibition, said Monday his union
would not handle the concert
because of the B.C. Federation of
Labor decision to label as "hot"
CKLG and any firm doing business
with it.
A "hot" declaration calls on
members of unions belonging to
the federation to boycott the
striking company or its products.
Twenty-seven employees of
CKLG, owned by Moffatt Broadcasting Corporation, went on strike
Feb. 1 for a first contract. They are
represented by CUPE local 686.
"The Federation has declared
hot anybody who does business
with CKLG," said Werlin. "I can't
see how we can turn our backs on
them."
The   federation   on   Feb.   28
declared CKLG "hot" and any
firms doing business with the
station, but the declaration did not
include advertisers.
Federation researcher Clive
Lytle said Werlin announced the
decision under the impression that
the concert, which is sponsored by
the Bellevue, Wash.-based Concerts West, is co-sponsored by
CKLG.
However, station manager Don
Hamilton said in an interview the
station is only- advertising the
concert and was not involved in
bringing the concert to Vancouver.
He said the threatened cancellation did not involve CKLG.
"It's strictly a contractual
dispute between Concerts West and
the PNE," he said.
A spokeswoman for the station
said earlier the ad copy for the
concert, which had CKLG
"presenting" Led Zeppelin, had
been changed and there is now no
mention of CKLG in the copy.
Gary Switlo, Vancouver-area
representative of Concerts West
refused to comment on the
situation.
Lytle has said the Federation's
"hot" declaration would probably
have little effect on the station,
because CKLG does not use outside
union labor other than postal and
telephone workers.
He said that because a radio
station does not use outside union
labor other than postal and
telephone workers, a hot
declaration, in which union labor
refuses to service the "hot"
company or product, does not have
a far-reaching effect.
He said management personnel
have been picking up CKLG mail
and B.C. Tel has been sending
supervisors to service the station
since the workers have not crossed
picket lines.

UBC will receive $8 million to
construct new campus buildings
next year, the University of Victoria will get $4 million but Simon
Fraser University won't receive
anything, The Ubyssey learned
Monday.
The B.C. Universities' Council
decided those allocations at
meeting Thursday and Friday in
dividing up a $12 million provincial
capital grant among the three
universities. The figures were not
intended to be released until after
the council's next meeting March
14.
The Ubyssey also learned that
SFU will receive none of the $8
million,it had requested because
the university has accumulated
cash in bank accounts from earlier
capital grants.
Universities' council members
interviewed Monday would neither
confirm nor deny the figures The
Ubyssey obtained. Council
chairman William Armstrong was
travelling and could not be reached
for comment.
However SFU administration
vice-president George Stuart said:
"What you say is possible."
He said SFU has accumulated a
surplus of capital funds for
projects it had planned earlier but
couldn't complete because of labor
disputes and planning delays
within architects' offices.
Stuart and SFU president
Pauline Jewett declined to say
what effect the decision to grant no
capital funds to SFU would have on
their university's expansion plans.
SFU had wanted the extra

Vieux terrible for arts dean?
By BERTON WOODWARD
Classics head Malcolm McGregor believes he's the
people's choice for arts dean.
McGregor sailed into The Ubyssey office Monday
bearing his application for the arts dean position in
the.alternative election for the post currently being
organized by the arts undergraduate society.
"I want to be the people's candidate," McGregor
s,aid.
"You've convinced me," he told Ubyssey staffers.
"I was very impressed by your first page (Friday)."
The Ubyssey Friday front-paged the AUS plan to
hold the alternative election.
McGregor, though a conservative vieux terrible in
campus politics, is the only faculty member who
regularly visits The Ubyssey office.
Asked if he believed in an open election for arts
dean, he responded: "If I'm the arts dean, yes."
McGregor's platform includes abolishing The
Ubyssey and replacing it "with a newspaper",
abolishing the present head of classics (himself) and
replacing him with AMS president-elect Jake van der
Kamp (a former classics student) and abolishing
secrecy, with all interviews, in offices and health
services, broadcast daily.
McGregor's letter appears on page four.
McGregor opined that faculty are not involved
enough in campus affairs.
"That's the trouble with this campus — there's not
enough faculty participation," he said.
"Look at student council — it's all students. Look at
The Ubyssey—it's all students in this office."
When it was suggested McGregor might hold his
meetings in The Lethe, the newly-named SUB liquor
lounge whose title is taken from Greek mythology,

Land was very cheap — Victoria
From page 1
"Stanzl sold the land because the
fraternities showed no interest in
it," said Houston. "Several years
ago, the fraternities sold the land
to Stanzl because they weren't in
good position financially."
The university calendar calls
Regent College "an affiliated
college" but autonomous body,
trans-denominational in character
and evangelical and biblical in
nature."
"We are currently negotiating
with Phi Delta Theta for their
house," Houston said. If they wish,
they have the option of moving it or
tearing it down."
'Prairie unions
too costly'
Representatives to a student
council executive's conference in
Saskatoon last weekend agreed it
will be difficult to establish
provincial student unions in the
three prairie provinces, Alma
Mater Society president-elect Jake
van der Kamp said Thursday.
Van der Kamp said four UBC
reps explained the operation of the
B.C. Association of Students'
Unions to the conference.
Prairie delegates explained it
would be difficult to establish an
organization such as the Ontario
Federation of Students within their
provinces, he said, because they
lack the money to support extensive paid secretarial staff and
lobbyists.
Van der Kamp said plans are to
reconstitute the BCASU so its 17
university and community college
members will pay some money to
support a centralized office but
most of the work, unlike in Ontario,
would be done by volunteers.
Meanwhile, spokesmen for other
fraternities agreed they will be
forced to raise their room rents
because their lease was raised to
$3,000 from $1,200 by the provincial
lands department.
"In the past year, enrolment
went up 25 to 30 per cent above last
year," said Dave Plunkett,
president of Alpha Delta Phi.
"We're just coming back on our
feet financially again, and now
we're being squeezed with the
increase in the lease.
"The university gets cheap
housing with the fraternities.
Eighteen of twenty-four of our
rooms are rented to people who are
not members of the fraternities
and can't get into the residences.
"It's certainly hard to find a
room out in the city," said
Plunkett. "We're appealing to
Victoria."
In an interview from Victoria, H.
K. Kidd, a spokesman for the lands
department, said: "We raised the
price because that's the realistic
value of the land. $1,200 is very
cheap."
The fraternities are located on
university endowment lands. The
lands department determines the
value.
"Now, some of them have not
paid their bills," Kidd said. Only
one of them is in good standing.
Some of them are three years
behind.
"If they come to the government
to appeal, we will consider it."
In charging that the university is
attempting to buy up the frat land,
Higgins of Phi Gamma Delta said:
"I spoke to (university bursar)
William White in November and he
told me the university wanted the
'back eight' lots, between
Agronomy Road and the two
towers."

use."
The fraternities will meet March

of the two fraternities and the
increased lease.

Two-day
wait for
centre fate
By DEBBIE BARRON
A fund-raising committee for the
Asian centre now under construction will learn in two days
whether there will be money
available to complete the building,
a committee spokesman said
Monday.
Committee chairman Joseph
Whitehead asked the federal
government a month ago to finance
the remaining construction. The
committee is now awaiting word
from the Urban Affairs department on the funding, Whitehead
said.
"Approximately $1.6 million was
raised (for the centre) but now
inflation has created the need for
the same amount in addition," he
said.
Religious studies prof Shotaro
Iida suggested three years ago that
the centre be built and a group of
private citizens decided to raise
funds, Whitehead said.
The building is the transplanted
exterior of the Sanyo pavilion from
the Expo '70 world's fair at Osaka,
Japan.
Funds were obtained from the
provincial and federal governments, the federation of Japanese
industries, the Expo '70 foundation
and private sources, Whitehead
said.
But these funds will last only
until mid-April when the exterior
and roofing of the centre will be
complete.
Whitehead said he hopes the
centre will be ready for the Habitat
'76 conference on human settlements where it will display nongovernmental aspects of the
United Nations meeting.
The centre will later be turned
over to UBC to house the department of Slavonic and Asian
studies, National Library books on
Asia transferred from Ottawa, and
enough Asian resource material to
make UBC the major resource
centre Asian in Canada, Whitehead
said.

UBC residents
eye $5,000 grant
UBC residence spokesmen expressed interest Monday in grants
of up to $5,000 offered by the B.C.
Rent Review Commission for
position papers from landlord or
tenant groups on provincial rent
policies.
Commission chairman John
Brewin announced last week a
total of $20,000 is available to
groups that want to prepare a
formal paper about B.C. rent
policies.
Half of the money will go to
landlord groups and half to tenant
groups, with no organization
receiving more than $5,000, he
said.
Joint residence committee
member Brian Dougherty, who
represents Gage Towers, said
Monday UBC residence groups will
probably be interested in the funds.
"It is a good project if people
become interested," he said.
"What is needed is a group that
knows the implications and
economics of rent policy."
Dougherty said the joint
residence committee or Alma
Mater Society council members
would be qualified to prepare a
thorough position paper.
Totem Park resident Ken
Martens, who presented a
residence student petition to the
board of governors March 4, said
students in residences will become
interested in the funds.
The residence petition called on
the BOG to investigate alternative
means of meeting residence costs
which have lead to next year's 18
per cent rent increases.
The commission will decide by
April 15 which groups are to
receive funding and the chosen
groups must submit their position
papers by July 15.
Applications, due by April 15,
should include details of the
organization, membership, a
statement of study objectives and a
budget for the funds requested.
Brewin said the commission,
which is examining rent policy,
will hold periodic meetings with
the landlord and tenant groups
involved.
The commission plans to complete its study by Sept. 1 and will
hold a series of public meetings
before submitting1 its findings to
the provincial government.
Twenty-six students are seeking
11 positions on the revamped UBC
senate in elections being held today
and March 27.
Six of the 17 student positions* on
the 79-member body were won by
acclamation when only one person
was nominated for each of six
faculty rep positions.
Candidates for the March 27 at-
large election include three
outgoing members of the Alma
Mater Society executive, which
leaves office March 15.
1 Today's election is for senate
representatives in the faculties of
art, sciences, commerce and
business administration, medicine,
and pharmaceutical sciences.
Under the law provincial
Universities Act brought down last
spring, student representation on
the senate was increased to 17
seats from 12.
In today's election:
Running for arts senator are
Arlene Francis and Carol Goulet,
both arts 3.
Brian Dougherty, commerce 3,
and Peter Harper, commerce 1,
are contesting the commerce seat.
Incumbent senator Colm Cole
and Ron Walls, both science 4, are
running for science senator.
Seeking the medicine seat on
senate are Henry Bergman,
medicine 2, John Sehmer,
medicine 2 and Glenn Taylor,
medicine 3.
The pharmaceutical sciences
UBC heads seek dope referendum
The UBC dopesmokers' club is
attempting to have a campus
referendum held on students'
attitudes toward decriminalizing
possession of sweet maryjane.
- The referendum has been turned
down by Alma Mater Society officials because a petition circulated on campus requesting the
referendum did not contain the
referendum wording in full, a
dopesmokers' spokesman said
Monday.
The club will approach today the
executive of the arts undergraduate society to try to have
the referendum held concurrently
with upcoming AUS executive
elections.
The referendum would ask
students whether they favor
reclassifying anti-cannabis laws
from the Criminal Code of Canada
to the Food and Drug Act* which
provides lower penalties. Results
would be published and forwarded
to the Canadian senate, currently
examining marijuana laws.
The dopesmoker said the club
needs the agreement of three of the
five AUS executive members and
currently has the definite support
of only two.
If the AUS refuses, the club will
go before AMS council, he said.
"Failing this, we'll just have to go
out and do it (the petition) ourselves again."
The dopesmokers' club holds
regular noon-hour meetings outside the south end of Brock Hall.
senate race is also a three-way
fight, between Lynn Cerscadden,
Grant Edwards and Alicia Polanin,
all pharmaceutical sciences 3.
All students vote in their own
constituencies. Arts students vote
in Buchanan, commerce in Angus,
medicine in Woodward library,
science in Sedegwick and pharmaceutical sciences in the Cunningham Building.
Polls are open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
On March 27, grad students will
elect a representative to senate
and all students will pick five
student senators-at-large from 12
nominees.
Running for grad studies senator
are Bernard Bischoff, philosophy
M.A. program, and Garth Sun-
deen, food sciences M.A. program.
The 12 students running for
senator-at-large are: Cole and
Francis, who will run again if not
elected today; Ron Dumont, arts 2
and outgoing Alma Mater Society
co-ordinator; outgoing AMS
president Gordon Blankstein,
unclassified;
Johan de Rooy, education 4;
Greg Heenan, physical education
3; Brian Higgins, arts 4; Brian
Krasselt, science 3;
Incumbent senator arts 4;
Michael Mathers, law 1; outgoing
AMS external affairs officer Gary
Moore, commerce; and Bruce
Wilson, arts 3.
Elected by acclamation to
represent their respective faculties
were: Janet Ryan, agricultural
science 3; Keith Gagne, applied
science 2; Douglas Bing, dentistry
2; Joan Blandford, education 2;
Thomas Pascuzzo, forestry 2; and
Gordon Funt, law 1.

money to build library extensions
and develop facilities for expanded
off-campus programs.
UBC president Walter Gage and
bursar William White declined
comment about the budget
allocations until they receive official figures.
UBC's allocation was $10 million
less than the $18 million the
university administration had
originally requested.
But UVic's president William
Petch said he is "very pleased"
that his university will get $4
million, only $1.5 million less than
the $5.5 million his university had
originally requested.
Petch said the extra money will
enable the university to overcome
an "extremely serious space
crunch in the next 18 months."
The provincial government last
year authorized UBC to borrow as
much as $10 million to complete
already planned projects.
Council chairman Armstrong
has said money borrowed and paid
back this year will have to be
deducted from the portion of the
total capital grant UBC receives.
White said the provincial cabinet
had authorized UBC to borrow to
finish an extension to the biological
sciences building and to complete
planning and construction of new
anthropology and sociology
facilities, a new library data
processing centre, Asian studies
centre and civil and mechanical
engineering buildings.
Still to be announced is how the
council will divide up the $150.2
million operating grant among the
three universities. Page 4
THE      UBYSSEY
Tuesday, March  11,  1975
Frats boring; housing not
Yawn. Fraternities.
That would be the editorial
reaction here if the houses on frat
row, now disappearing fast because
of land transactions and land
department decrees, still housed only
the fraternities.
Because after all, fraternities have
sunk finally and peacefully into total
irrelevancy (thank God) and if only
frats were in question the buildings
might as well have followed them.
But these days the houses don't
just accommodate the fraternities.
They also provide beds for about
300 students. And in these days of
housing crisis, 300 beds is quite a
chunk.
So they should be preserved as
additional        accommodation        —
preferably on the sort of
co-operative basis they have been
running on lately.
Unfortunately, that will be
difficult.
The frat land is now owned by a
private developer, Frank Stanzl, who
is not likely motivated by the old
university spirit and won't want to
part with the land for a
generously-low price. Developers
tend to be so fond of their land it's
hard to make them part with it.
Then too, he's already sold two
lots to Regent College for use in
classroom construction.
But it might be wise for the
university to step in and buy the
rest. They could try to get the
money       from       the       provincial
Naughty Hardial
government after detailing a) need
and b) how the frats provide a
chance for experimental housing.
The frats could continue on as an
experiment in group-controlled
housing — and we all know how fond
the provincial government is of
experimental housing concepts.
We note with astonishment the
incorrect line taken by the
Communist Party of Canada
(Marxist-Leninist) and its chairman,
Hardial Bains,in regards to prejudice
against East Indians.
Bains and the CPC (M-L) have
announced the formation of a
vigilante squad to beat white punks
who insult and assault East Indian
immigrants and Canadians of East
Indian extraction into
correctly-colored pulp.
At least the effort has to be made.
Because come September, there
will be another mad scramble for
housing, And subtracting 300 beds
isn't going to help the problem, even
our most astute mathematicians
must agree.
However, this policy is
encouraging struggle along racial
lines, thus splitting the working class
into opposing factions — serving the
capitalist pig, etc. exploiters.
The CPC (M-L) should instead be
encouraging struggle along class lines.
Only in this way will the purpose
of the glorious red be furthered.
Read your Marx, Hardial, read
your Marx.

The Editrix,
The Ubyssey
Dear Madam:
Titillated by your spectacular
and inspired story on page 1 of
Friday's issue, I offer myself in
candidature for the deanship of the
faculty of arts as the people's
choice. In keeping with the spirit of
the age I set out my program for
your inspection.
When elected,
(1)1 shall abolish The Ubyssey
and replace it with a newspaper.
Fifty per cent of the staff, including the co-editor, will be
members of the faculty.
(2) I shall abolish the students'
council as an undemocratic body
and replace it with an anarchistic
synod; 50 per cent of the members
will be members of the faculty.
(3) I shall insist that 50 per cent
of all lectures be delivered by
students, speaking their own
dialects.
(4) I shall abolish all structures
within a one-mile radius of SUB, in
order that the finest sty in British
Columbia may enjoy unrivalled
admiration.
(5) I shall abolish the present
head of the department of classics
and replace him with Jake van der
Kamp, who has long coveted the
position.
(6) I shall appoint a board of
censors to enforce a rigid code of
morals among students and faculty
and to eliminate coarseness from
the campus; the director (or
directrix, to retain a certain
mystique) will be Lesley Krueger,
who has had long experience in this
sensitive area.
(7) I shall abolish secrecy. From
now on all marks, for examinations
and essays,  will   be   distributed
throughout the campus; and all
interviews, in offices and in the
health service, will be broadcast
daily.
I hope that, in the interests of
formal propriety, you will print the
salutation at the head of this letter;
every flourishing organization
needs a Madam.
I remain, your devoted reader,

One would think these consisted
of the delicious aromas of baking
bread, broiling roasts and
exotically spiced dishes. One would
be wrong.
This vent emits the most gross
and putrid smell imaginable.
Visions of a rotted green roast,
covered with maggots, lying in a
bowl of sour milk Come to mind.

Crane
It is interesting to note that the
head of the Crane library is concerned about the "greying of the
campus" and yet did not speak out
against the proposed library data
building which will do a lot more
toward greying the campus than a
few walkways.

Hey gang, let's all hop on down to Dan Miller's for a Frat Party with all
the trimmings: Lesley Krueger, you bring the bobby sox for all the girls,
Berton Woodward and Kini McDonald, the far-out vibes; Debbie Barron,
John Sprague and John DeAngeli, the fruit punch; Marise Savaria, Ralph
Maurer, Mark Bucckshon, Jan O'Brien, and Doug Rushton, the party parlor

combs. Gary Coull will be the DJ. Two dollars for the piggy bank, please
gents. Tune in tomorrow for the winner of the frat prom.
Now that the weather has
(hopefully) turned to spring,
perhaps the people at Physical

the library ponds. A few people
may get thrown in but they are
nicer to look at than empty stream

Lackey
Would the editor care to explain
why it was considered necessary,
or, if it was not necessary, how it
was justifiable to use the word
"lackey" in a reference to me in
your edition of this date?
James Conrad
chairman, special events
A lackey is defined as "one who
serves." We were merely pointing
out your admirable efficiency in
serving the students of this campus
in your capacity of special events
committee head.
Grad class
The grad class council should
either be ratified or disbanded.
Should it be disbanded, the $7 fee
should be returned to the students
and the grad class fee cancelled for
succeeding years. The students can
then decide how, when, and on
what they wish to spend their
money, whether it be parties,
composites, or statues.
Should it be ratified, the grad
class council should be allowed to
decide on money issues, what
projects to put on the ballot, and
any other business pertaining to
the grad class.
These are representatives from
each faculty and they were
selected to speak for the students
of their faculties.
Therefore let them get on with
their mandate. If reps do not see fit
to attend the meetings then it is up
to the students of that faculty to see
that there is a representative at the
grad class council meetings.
The conclusion from the manner
in which matters are being handled
at present is that a decision must
be made by someone — the student
council, the student court, or
preferably, the students at large.
Keep the fee and the grad class
council and give them the
authority to operate or disband the
council and refund the money.
Someone make a decision!

[member 1974 grad class council]
Starvation
The presence of starvation in the
world and our reaction to it has
caught our concern and we would
like to offer a Christian opinion on
the matter.
Firstly, we would like to
disassociate ourselves from any
self-centred philosophy that sees
the only solution to the problem as
"letting nature run its course,"
without any effort on our part to
alleviate this human suffering.
The Bible teaches that man has
been created in the image of God,
which gives him an infinite value,
not only because of this resemblance, but also because the Bible
clearly teaches that God loves all
men, showing no partiality among
nations or -individuals.
The loss then of one child is an
infinite loss, and any effort to save
one life is infinitely worthwhile.
Jesus Christ is the basis of our
response. His mission was to
preach Good News to the poor and
the oppressed. At His death with
His last possession stripped from
him, He was crucified as a political
terrorist by a threatened and
fearful establishment. He said He
died to draw all men in live unto
Himself, identifying Himself with

THE      UBYSSEY

Letters
From page 4
the human race by using the title
'Son of Man.'
The Bible teaches that God has
provided all men with the benefits,
not only of spiritual salvation in
Christ, but also with the abundance
of the material world. There is no
intention of confining these to a
privileged few.
Our aid to the hungry then is not
a question of worthiness, for all
men are of equal worth; it is not a
question of utility, but a response
in love to a loving Creator's action
on the cross. Of course the problem
of hunger is staggering almost to
the point of despair, however the
motto of World Vision of Canada is
correct ki saying, 'Just because
you can't do everything doesn't
mean you can't do something.'
We would like to compliment
those who hold to the option of
letting nature take its course for
being consistent. It is the logical
conclusion if one holds the presupposition that the universe is a
product of chance, time and
matter.
An utterly impersonal starting
point yields an impersonal solution
to the hunger problem. They
should not be criticized for coming
to the logical conclusion that their
philosophy provides them with.
Yet the Bible teaches we have a
very personal Creator; this fact
Christians see as taking less faith
to believe than that we, once
merely dust particles, have
evolved to what we are now by
blind forces in the universe.
The Bible teaches that those who
ignore the poor in their time of
need, will also be ignored when
poverty strikes them.
We would like to confess our own
inadequate response and our own
hypocrisy in light of the serious
starvation problem. We, along with
many others, are trying to become
more credible in our life styles, but
are falling far short. The criticisms
anyone might have of our reaction
are probably valid and understated, yet we.would have them
behold Christ and His actions and
love him.
In conclusion, we would like to
side with the editorial staff in their
concern for revolutionary change
in the third and fourth world
countries. Let us not stop at merely
rearranging material possessions
in a more equitable manner, but let
us let our social concern be also
personal concern, that is concern
for the societal structures as well
as for the individual.
These are the revolutionary
concerns of Christ. If we take His
name in vain, we take in vain a
man who was anti-establishment,
pro-man, and pro-social justice,
and gave His life for these things,
something, we, as comfortable
protagonists, might be unwilling to
do.

R idiculous
I don't normally reply to any of
the ridiculous statements in The
Ubyssey because they aren't
worthy of reply (I have this theory
that some of you were hit over the
head by some of the Gage beer
bottles of infamy.) However, when
you start quoting mathematicians,
I guess it's time for me to speak for
myself.
The exponential growth rate you
quote so glibly has certain
assumptions. I realize that a clear
statement of assumptions is
contrary to your editorial policy,
but still: one of those assumptions
is precisely an unlimited food
supply. Nature does not supply this
free of charge. But since you seem
to think it does have exponential
growth, here's some simple exponential arithmetic, based on
rather conservative specific
assumptions.
Suppose each couple had, on the
average three children, and that a
generation was a third of a century. Then each 200 years the
population would go up by (3/2)6
which is a factor of more than 10.
So assumingly only 1,000 people on
the earth only 1,800 years ago, the
world population is now well in
excess of a trillion. With the even
more conservative assumptions of
2.5 children/family and two
generations/century, the same
growth would have occurred since
about 2000.
Guess what?
Your model of nature was
strong. Strictly speaking, nature
does not allow overpopulation over
the whole world; only specific
parts of it can be overpopulated,
and only at the expense of other
parts. And Nature does solve the
problem. Righto.
Now a brief examination of what
the actual results of a few
proposals would be.
(1) Lots of aid reaching the
desired people, and no other
changes. (Put first because it's the
one that will actually happen.)
Except for politicians and
professional exploiters of misery,
the worst of all possible worlds.
Any good effects to the current
generation are solely to get a
larger next generation to die of
famine.
Because giving this aid would
tend to make your exponential
growth law apply, increasing the
population at a much higher rate
then my triple-every-century
above, and because the aid
eventually runs out — probably
because of general disgust on the
part of North Americans at
working that the Bangladeshes
may be fruitful and multiply;
possibly by exhaustion of available
resources. And then the starvation
the aid was originally designed to
prevent will happen on a much
larger scale.
Incidentally, this effect — that is,
past aid — is a major cause of the
present situation.
(2) "Let them eat nothing," as
you put it, with no other changes.
Not good, but substantially better
since fewer people would starve —
say, 1 instead of 2 billion. If this be
fascism, I'll take it over liberalism
any day. There are some non-
mathematical advantages, too. If
North Americans aren't working
for others, dealings between them
can be as equals — psychologically
better for both sides, in getting rid
of a "dependence" psychology on
the Asian side, and a "guilt"
psychology on the North American
side.
(Funny, isn't it, how the U.S.
sends aid to whomever, and then
gets accused, not of being exploited
by, but of exploiting, the
whomever.)
(3) Make other changes.
Obviously   the   most   desirable
solution, but, without adopting
Dave Kyle's weirdo sacred
nationalism, may I suggest —
that's their business?
Further elaboration here would
make my letter excessively long,
so I will just note that your
proposal amounts to (3) plus (1)
("Massive" foreign aid), but a
type of (3) which doesn't invalidate
the criticisms of (1) above.
Finally, you suggest looking at
China. O.K. I see them importing
hundreds of millions of bushels (or
tons or dollars worth or something)
(no, not individual seeds) of wheat.
Which is hardly self-sufficiency,
even though they have the most
agrarian society in the world.
Contrast, say, Holland.
Agriculture is strictly secondary to
industry there, yet they manage to
export (aside from 1-bit student
reporters), at least some food
(cheese), even though their
population is about as dense. I
wonder how come?

Women's three-year rule ends
By CARL VESTERBACK
A winning tradition stretching
back three years came to an end
for the Thunderettes basketball
team Saturday in New Brunswick.
And ironically, the coach of the
Laurentian Voyageurs, the team
that ended UBC's reign, is Norm
Vickery, coach of the Thunderettes
just two years ago.
The Voyageurs engineered their
59-49 triumph with an aggressive
defensive game which effectively
muzzled the powerful Thunderette
offence. Carol Turney was the only
UBC player to perform up to par,
leading the Thunderettes with 19
rpoints. The rest of the team lagged
far behind. Nearest to Turney was
Tar a Smith with 9 points.
"They (the Voyageurs) played a
great game," said UBC coach Sue
Evans.
"Vickery is a good coach, and his
team really showed it. They were
well-disciplined and aggressive."
Laurentian refused to buckle
under the pressure of the Thunderettes' full-court press,
managing to blow through for
some easy baskets. After falling
behind, UBC found itself incapable
of making up the deficit in the face
of the strong Voyageur defence.
Vickery had praise for both
teams.
"Both teams played good
defence," he said.
"I know what a good team UBC

'Birds dropped the
Soccer Thunderbirds iose
By CEDRIC TETZEL
The B.C. soccer league said the
UBC Thunderbirds were going to
play the North Shore Pauls, but
apparently they never got around
to telling the 'Birds.
Come Saturday afternoon, 22
soccer players and friends
gathered at the Capilano Stadium
and announced they were going to
play soccer.
The weather was lovely; it was
rainy and cold, or in soccer
language: just the right thing to
make a good game.
From there, the guys commenced their one-and-a-half hours
show of why the White Oaks of
Jalna was cancelled.
Holy English Muffins and
Scottish Bagpipes, was the game
ever boring!
The first half saw the 'Birds
pinned in their own half of the field,
which was a good thing since they
couldn't have done anything at the
other end anyway.
The second half was pretty much
the same. The Pauls were one up
after   only   five   minutes    when
Sergio Zanatta tapped in a goal
which everyone expected to come.
The 'Birds did manage to get
some shots away after the Pauls'
goal. Darryl Samson made a solo
run down the middle left wing only
to find his half-shot half-cross
cleared by a very unco-operative
North Shore defender.
Before I forget, UBC coach Joe
Johnson was overheard during the
game describing the 'Birds game
as "pathetic" and "silly". Just
letting you guys know I wasn't the
only one who was bored.

is, having coached some of the

for winning."
For the Thunderbirds, meanwhile, the miracles ran out. After
staving off elimination from the
Canada West playoffs and then
beating first-place Victoria in
Victoria to advance to the national
tournament, the 'Birds found
themselves competing at a pretty
rarefied level.
As a result, they bowed out
meekly, losing 72-55 to the St.
Mary's Huskies and 81-71 to the Sir
George University Georgians.
The 'Birds were simply, out of
their league. It's also possible that
being in the national tournament
may have laid some kind of a glaze
over the players'   consciousness.
The 'Birds should be strong next
year. Only Blake Iverson is
leaving. Chris Trumpy should
emerge as the floor general and big
Mike McKay will improve. Scoring
champion Steve Pettifer will be
back, along with gum-chewing
Ralph Turner. A desperate crew,
indeed.
Three straight wins
for rugby 'Birds
By TOM BARNES
Will MacKenzie's hat trick was
all the Thunderbird rugby team
really needed to push their way
past Western Washington State
and move their Pacific Northwest
league record to 3-0.
UBC took the lead at four
minutes when Ro Hindson broke
away from a maul and neatly set
up the entire 'Bird backfield. It
was Rob Jenkins who eventually
scored the try.
MacKenzie made the score 8-0
with a nice run down the sideline.
Hindson pushed the 'Birds up by 12
points as he bulled his way over the
goal line at 15 minutes, carrying
four Western Washington defenders the final ten yards.
Western Washington tried to
come back as they pushed over a
try produced by some tough, if
disorganized, running to make the
score 12-4.
UBC bounced right back as Paul
Watson dribbled the ball down the
sideline and over the goal, where
Dave Eburne fell on it for the try.
Five minutes later John Billingsley
brought   through   a   group   of
defenders and slipped the ball over
to Jenkins, who flipped it back to
David Whyte, who cut between two
defenders and then returned the
ball to Billingsley who waltzed in
unmolested for the try.
Western Washington scored
again on a 45-yard penalty kick.
Preston Wiley cut their rally short
as he returned upfield and ran 25
yards one-on-one with the last
defender. Ten yards out he passed
off to MacKenzie who went over for
his'second try. Wiley converted to
make the score 26-7.
Whyte rounded out the scoring in
the first half as he capitalized on
some good reverse field running.
Wiley was wide on the convert and
at the half the 'Birds led 30-7.
In the second half the Western
Washington side picked up a bit to
hold the 'Birds to three tries.
Eburne got his second, Jenkins his
second, and MacKenzie his third.
UBC dominated the scrum and
the lineouts to keep possession of
the ball for much of the game. The
final score, 42-7, was an apt representation of the difference between
the teams.

literally shown the door by a
speech organizer. The organizer
asked the man to leave, held open
the door, and the man left.
About five other members of the
audience of about 30 challenged
sponsor Joe Flexer in Hebrew.
Another said: "I'd like to tell
everybody here that what the
speaker said is all lies," but the
man did not elaborate.
Flexer, who fought with the
Israeli army 19 years ago, told his
SUB audience that the central
problem in the Middle East is
imperialist domination.
A member of the Revolutionary
Marxist Group which sponsored
his talk, Flexer said the RMG
"recognizes that Zionism is a mode
of domination of the Middle East
by imperialists."
Despite Zionism's pretenses and
ideology, it could never have come
into concrete form without
alliances with imperial powers,
Flexer said.
Zionism remains mainly a
colonialist-racist approach to the
Middle East problem, he said.
The Zionist solution to the Jewish
problem is "emigrate to Israel,"
he said, while the RMG believes in
mass unity against imperialism.
Flexer said the cause of the
Palestinians has been the cause of
the proletariat of the Middle East.
It is not Zionism that will defend
McGregor
From page 1
McGregor said: "Oh, yes, a
splendid institution. Should be
faculty-run, of course."
McGregor, who some authorities
say was born in Ancient Greece,
says the name is pronounced Lee-
thee, not Leh-thay as propounded
by AMS minions.
McGregor was also asked if he
planned to formally file his
nomination papers for arts dean
with the AUS.
"I've filed them with you," he
responded. "You're the power on
this campus."
But McGregor showed a liking
for the idea of being arts dean.
"That would be fun at my age," he
said as went out the door.
McGregor has already announced his retirement as head of
classics upon reaching the mandatory administrative retirement
age of 65.
Flexer .. . now anti-Zionist
the Jews but a revolution in cooperation with the Arabs that will
help them, he said.
One speaker from the floor
challenged Flexer on Zionism,
saying that while the movement
has been used by imperialists, it
has valid motives and ideas of its
own.
