Levesque stomps Bourassa in Quebec landslide
By DANIEL BOYER and JEFF KESSLER
Canadian University Press
In a stunning victory, far surpassing even
the hopes of party leaders, the Parti
Quebecois Monday smashed Robert
Bourassa and the Liberal party by winning
70 of the province's 110 ridings.
The Liberal party managed to win only 27
seats, compared with 1973 when they won
102. The revamped Union Nationale party,
under Rodrique Biron, won 11 seats and
drained away enough votes to play a major
role in the PQ victory.
The new premier, Rene Levesque, has
said he will call a referendum on "Quebec
independence'' within two years. However it
is unclear whether the Parti Quebecois'
victory was a vote for Quebec independence
or rather simply an out-and-out rejection of
the unpopular Bourassa regime's failure to
adequately deal with the economic
problems of the province.

Former premier Bourassa lost his seat in
the provincial legislature to Gerald Godin,
former editor of the influential magazine

The   biggest    majority    was    won   by

Levesque, who' topped his nearest rival by
nearly 20,000 votes.
In Montreal, general dissatisfaction with
the economic conditions were equated with
the Liberals and not only brought about the
defeat of suchhberals as Bourassa, but gave
victory to PQ candidates such as Jaques
Couture, the unsuccessful candidate against
Montreal mayor Jean Drapeau in the
municipal elections of 1974.
A close look at the voting breakdown
shows that Biron and the Union Nationale
party, by trying to offer a federalist alternative to the Bourassa regime, actually split
the traditional Liberal vote to enable many
PQ candidates to win by comfortable
margins.
The Union Nationale took the Liberal
stronghold of Pointe Claire, a riding in
Montreal's anglophone West End, defeating
both the Liberal candidate and the candidate of the Democratic Alliance, which
tried unsuccessfully to tap dissatisfaction
with Bourassa among the anglophones.

The beer began to flow again
Monday at the Pit.
The Alma Mater Society has
convinced the Liquor Administration Branch that the AMS
has a responsible attitude about
liquor use on campus, Dave
Theessen, student representative
assembly president said Monday.
The student administrative
commission decided last Tuesday
to reopen the Pit and Lethe and to
allow special occasion permits to
be granted in SUB. The SRA does
not have to ratify the decision,
Theessen said.
Pit manager Tor Svanoe said
Monday people will have to be
seated to be served. He said wine
and hard liquor will no longer be
served.
Six waiters are working each
shift, because beer must now be
bought from waiters. Two additional waiters have been hired to
work each shift, and seating
capacity in the pub has been
reduced from 395 to 350. Operating
hours of the Pit have also been cut
back.
But operations at the Lethe have
not been changed. "The Lethe was
never a problem before," Theessen
said.
Theessen said LAB official J. E.
Warren took a tour Wednesday of
SUB and its facilities. Theessen

last Tuesday.
BCSF and NUS seek $2 student levy
By JAN NICOL
and MIKE BOCKING
Once again the B.C. Students'
Federation and the National Union
of Students are asking UBC
students to support them.
The Alma Mater Society in one of
its referenda this week is asking
students to approve a $2 levy for
membership in these two
organizations.
Last spring a similar referendum was held and failed to get a
quorum by several hundred votes.
Of those who voted, 57 per cent
were in favor of joining the BCSF.
A two-thirds majority is required
to pass the referendum.
The circumstances were more
favorable for the referendum to
pass last spring. This time around,
the BCSF-NUS referendum has to
compete with numerous other
referenda, and will inherit some of
the backlash against student
politicos for their sloppy handling
of the Pit closure, the women's
office debacle, the vendors' issue
and a general lack of leadership in
handling the issues which have
faced the AMS this fall.
In the referendum's favor is the
high profile of BCSF and NUS
during the week of National
Student Day, although many of
the forums were poorly attended.
The BCSF and NUS are the
student organizations which claim
to represent students at the
provincial and federal levels.
Lake Sagaris, chairwoman of the
BCSF, said "the federal and
provincial governments make
decisions which affect the quality
of post-secondary education, its
accessibility and the every day
lives of students."
Sagaris said strong student
unions are necessary if students
are to have a voice in policies affecting them.
Bill Bell, a BCSF field worker,
said NUS and BCSF provide an
effective lobby in Victoria and
Ottawa to protest student interests.
The BCSF has organized rallies
to protest education cutbacks,
which will directly affect how
much students will have to pay in
tuition fees, he said.
Last spring the BCSF lobbied the
provincial government not to cut
back student employment
programs. The BCSF was instrumental  in the  government's
decision not to cut the program,
said Sagaris.
Other concerns of the BCSF are
student aid cutbacks, student
housing increases in tuition fees
and women in university.
The BCSF is committed to
universal accessibility of post-
secondary education, and to this
end tuition fees should be lowered
not raised, said Sagaris.
Individual student councils
cannot deal with the provincial
government separately, said
Sagaris. The department of
education tries to play institutions
and different interest groups
against each other, and the BCSF
fights back by co-ordinating the
goals of students.
Eddy Abel, a NUS field worker,
See page 2: NUS
Kenny said tuition fees will go up
next year if the provincial government does not increase UBC's
operating funds. But Kenny also
said he would not oppose the
government's decision.
"The administration must
maintain a neutral position. I'm
not going to get this university
involved in political crossfire," he
said.
However, when a member of the
audience asked Kenny if he would
make more public appearances
pushing for a fee freeze, Kenny
said: "I'm always prepared to — I
never duck an issue. I'll go pretty
far on this issue."
According to a letter from
education minister Pat McGeer to
college administrators, the
provincial government does not
have enough money to increase
operating funds, next year so the
colleges should consider boosting
tuition fees to meet the budget
cutback.
But McGeer and deputy minister
Walter Hardwick were not at the
forum, although they had been
asked by the Alma Mater Society
as early as last May.
Also speaking at the forum was
Lome Nicholson, housing minister

NUS hits issues
From page 1
said the national organization is
chiefly concerned with lobbying on
issues such as student unemployment, housing and grants to
educational institutions.
The top priority of NUS is to
make university education accessible to everyone, he said.
The current BCSF budget is
$40,000, which pays the salaries of
two field workers at $750 a month,
telephone, travelling, conference
and publication expenses.
UBC students presently contribute 25 cents per student to the
BCSF. Sagaris said if the
referendum passes the BCSF plans
to hire a third field worker and
increase   organization   activities.
The current NUS budget is
$150,000. Students at UBC
currently contribute 30 cents annually for membership, which is
the lowest rate in Canada.
The important thing about the
referendum, said Eddy Abel, is not
the money, but the moral support
of UBC students for the
organization. "We don't really
need UBC financially — we need
the people," said Abel.
Both the BCSF and NUS politicos
agreed that a failure of this
referendum would result in a loss
of credibility for their
organizations.
Sagaris said if the referendum
fails to get a quorum, UBC will
remain a member of the BCSF, but
will not have voting privileges.
A major criticism of the BCSF
and NUS is that they deal only with
bread and butter issues such as
tuition fees, housing, employment,
and education cutbacks. Former
AMS president Jake van der Kamp
said last spring there are other
things that the students are concerned with that the BCSF and
NUS should deal with such as drug
addiction, environmental issues,
prisons and rehabilitation, mental ■
illness and women's rights. He said
there are many problems in
society which are far  more im-
Bourassa's
team
massacred
portant than free tuition. Compared to other groups students
have it relatively easy, he said.
Another criticism of the BCSF
and NUS is that they are concerned
too much with lobbying, and do not
organize students at the grassroots level.
These organizations should be
more concerned with educating
students on the issues facing them,
and making the BCSF and NUS
better known. They lack
organizational support and are
lobbying from an insecure position.
Sagaris said there is a shift in
emphasis from a predominantly
lobbying function to a more equal
distribution in energies between
organization and lobbying.

Civic polls offer little choice
By CHRIS GAINOR
It was an angry, frustrated old
lady at the end of an all candidates
meeting who best summed up the
Nov. 17 Vancouver civie election.
"I've taken notes on all candidates," she groused, "and I'm as
confused as ever."
There are 27 positions up for
grabs Wednesday and 117 people
vying for them. Most voters have
difficulty making one choice, let
alone 27, and voting in several
referenda.
And few people would take the
time to investigate 117 candidates
coming from the Electors Action
Movement, the Civic Non-Partisan
Association, the Committee of
Progressive Electors, the League
for Socialist Action, the North
American Labor Party, the Society
for change, and the Pure Food
Guild.
Only the first three groups,
COPE, TEAM and the NPA
deserve serious consideration,
along with a handful of independents. The other groups
range from loonies to publicity-
seekers.
The story of civic politics since
1872 has been TEAM, led by Mayor
Art Phillips, alias the Man from
Glad. TEAM, then a group of do-
good liberals and NDPers who had
enough brains not to run in the
now-defunct NDP Vancouver area
council, took over City Hall after 35
years of rule under the neanderthal
NPA.
The NPA self-destructed that
year after mayor Tom Campbell's
retirement and TEAM came into
council the next year with nine out
of 11 council votes. But in 1972 the
TEAM vote was cut to six. Since
then, two TEAM aldermen have
left the fold to run on their own.
Clearly, TEAM has given
Vancouver some of the best civic
government it has ever had. But
after the long rule of the NPA and
its predecessors, that isn't much of
a compliment.
TEAM cleaned up the
bureaucracy, initiated local area
planning, stopped freeways, and
built monuments to itself such as
the Granville Mall.
It is an old and true adage that
Students give
OK to $1 SUS
fee for a year
Science students last week voted
80 per cent in favor of approving a
$1 fee levy for the science undergraduate society.
But the levy is only in effect for
one year because only 383 students
voted and a turnout of 15 per cent of
science students was needed to
meet quorum and make the levy
permanent.
"Next year's council will have to
provide increased student services
if they want to renew the levy,"
SUS president Bob Salkeld said
Monday.
The SUS held the fee referendum
in conjunction with a senate
byelection which ended in Linda
Erdman, science 3, being elected
to senate.
In the past, science students paid
nothing to the SUS and the new
levy was the first move by the SUS
to raise its own fees.
Salkeld said he was encouraged
by the turnout, the largest in years
for a science vote.
Though there are about 3,600
science students and only 383
voted.
"It will encourage next year's
science council to get off their butts
and do something," he said.
Meanwhile, the arts undergraduate society has joined the
fee referendum stampede and will
ask its members for $1 each at
polls this Wednesday and Thursday.
AUS executive member Paul
See page 9: AUS
the NPA gave developers a little
more than they wanted, and TEAM
gives them a little less.
TEAM holds the Granville Mall
as a monument to its achievements
— and they do with some justice.
The Granville Mall is the perfect
example of going half-way on
something and achieving nothing.
The mall is an extra wide
sidewalk encircling a street filled
with buses, taxi cabs and police
cars chasing drunks and dopers off
the mall — little better than the
Granville Street of old.
Council vacillated on all sorts of
things, such as the Habitat con
ference. In the space of a few short
months, council welcomed the UN
conference, then asked it be
cancelled, then welcomed it again.
Last year, Phillips announced he
would not run for mayor this year
and the race was on to replace him.
After a season of bitter infighting. TEAM has replaced the
man from Glad with the man from
Anyox, lawyer Jack Volrich.
Volrich announced early this year
he would run whether TEAM
nominated him or not. Even though
the TEAM brass clearly supported
him, Volrich took no chances on
achieving the goal of his consuming ambition.
Volrich ran slick ads on TV and
huddled with NPA buddies to see if
he could run off with the NPA
crown if TEAM wouldn't play the
game his way.
To everyone's surprise, fellow
TEAM alderman Michael Harcourt threw his hat in the ring.
Harcourt, the sole remaining leftie
on TEAM, was not expected to run
after having his nose bloodied with
the NDP in the last provincial
election.
What finally emerged was the
now-legendary TEAM nominating
UBC TAs to form union?
UBC teaching assistants are
considering following the lead of
TA's at Simon Fraser university
and forming a union, Dave
Chapman, chairman of the UBC
grad committee on TA's said
Friday.
But Chapman said the move will
depend on the results of a
questionnaire, soon to be circulated to grad students and the
600 TA's at UBC.
The questionnaire, which might
be ready in two weeks, "will
evaluate the financial support of
graduate students with particular
emphasis on TA wages."
In a move to make the TA group
known to the administration, the
GCTA co-ordinating committee
sent a letter to board of governors
members "asking why an eight per
cent stipend increase was not
received by all UBC TA's as was
determined by the preliminary
investigations of the GCTA."
The letter, sent late last week,
has received no reply from BoG
members.
Chapman said insurance
coverage is another problem TA's
face.
"TA's and grad students are not
being considered employees of the
university, though they do work
here. So we're not insured against
accidents while we're engaged in
research or while teaching,"
Chapman said.
An opinion was voiced at last
Friday's GCTA meeting "to start
considering the possibility of
unionization, such as at SFU or a
bargaining committee, as at the
University of Toronto."
The TA committee has been
meeting once every two weeks
since it formed in late September.
But attendance has been about 20
grads per session.
Chapman said he is not worried
about the apparent lack of interest
by the - majority of TA's in the
GCTA.
meeting which capped a long
struggle between Volrich and
Harcourt to see who could sell the
most TEAM memberships, and the
nomination.
Volrich enlisted every liberal
within sight, and Harcourt, with
the assistance of former NDP
resources minister Bob Williams,
attempted an NDP takeover after
Williams had engineered the
demise of the Vancouver area
council of the NDP, which had gone
nowhere in civic politics.
Volrich outbought Harcourt, won
the nomination, and steered TEAM
firmly into the liberal fold. Harcourt resigned, and is now running
as an independent with former
TEAM-mate Aid. Darlene Marzari, who had seen a year earlier
which way TEAM was headed.
Aid. Ed Sweeney's coronation as
NPA mayoral candidate was not
trouble-free either. As the year
began, millionaire developer Fred
Wyder was busy buying memberships, but a backroom meeting
in May ended with Wyder settling
for an aldermanic nomination.
The NPA had feared getting the
image the Social Credit party
gained in last year's election after
several nominations were purchased.
At the nomination meeting
Sweeney won by default but
several NPA executive members
stomped out claiming a small
clique controlled the NPA.

'Canadian government irresponsible'
By MIKE BOCKING
The Canadian government is acting
irresponsibly by selling Candu nuclear reactors
to politically unstable countries, a leading
critic of Candu exports said Thursday.
Gordon Edwards, chairman of the Canadian
Coalition for Nuclear Responsibility, told an
audience of 150 in SUB ballroom one of the
reasons Argentina, South Korea and India want
Candu reactors is so they can make nuclear
bombs.
Edwards said there should be a public
inquiry to study nuclear power and other
energy sources. There should also be a
moratorium on construction of nuclear plants
until the public has a chance to discuss nuclear
energy, he said.
The federal government does not want a
public inquiry, he said. "The future of nuclear
energy is not rosy, so they want to keep the
issue in-house and not broadcasted."
Edwards said the Candu system is two or
three times more expensive than other energy
sources. The nuclear power lobby says nuclear
power is competitive with other power sources,
he said.
But there are hidden costs in nuclear energy,
such as the large amounts of money spent by
government in the research, development and
promotion of nuclear power, said Edwards.
The biggest problem with nuclear power he
said, is the disposal of nuclear waste. Edwards
said nuclear wastes have to be stored for
500,000 to 1 million years.
Few political regimes last more than several
centuries, he said and none has lasted more
than a thousand years. Therefore we cannot
guarantee the safe storage of these wastes.
The current method of storing nuclear wastes
is to put them in undisturbed salt formations.
But it is impossible to put waste into an undisturbed salt formation without disturbing it,
he said. There have already been leaks of
radioactive material using this method, said
Edwards.
The waste-disposal problem has not been
solved, he said, and until it is there is a
potential for extensive damage by poorly
stored nuclear wastes.
Edwards said the federal government should
be looking at other sources of energy for future
power needs.
"We already have a limitless source of
energy in solar power," he said, "the
possibilities are enormous for developing
different sources of solar energy."
Renewable energy sources such as wood can
also be used, he said. Liquid fuels can be
produced from trees and other types of
renewable plant crops.
Edwards said if the Canadian government
spent as much money on other forms of energy,
as it does on nuclear energy we would not need
nuclear power.
Electricity is a wasteful form of energy,
particularly in heating buildings, he said.
Nuclear power is used to produce electricity.
The high temperature of a nuclear reaction is
used to heat water to produce the steam which
turns turbines to produce electrical power.
"Nuclear energy is really a sophisticated way
of boiling water," said Edwards. Page 4

Vote yes to student fees
This is your big chance, folks.
If you vote yes in the various
referenda that begin tonight and
continue on Wednesday and Thursday,
Ubyssey staffers won't have to write any
more boring editorials urging you to get
out and vote to give all of us folks some
of your hard-earned money.
That's a promise.
All you have to do is vote yes.
We'll even give you some other
reasons why you should.
We know it's really too bad that all
kinds of referenda are competing for
your attention — and your wallets — at
the same time.
But it's unavoidable. All the groups
asking for your bucks actually need the
money. And they need it now.
We'll  start with women's  athletics.
Right now, each of you pays $5 a year
to athletics. Of that, $4.20 goes to men's
athletics, and only 80 cents goes to
women's teams.
Women's athletics has expanded
during the years — and now has 29
teams in 18 different sports. They
deserve the $2 they're asking for —
which, by the way, won't come close to
making up the difference with men's
sports.
Next on the list is the B.C. Students'
Federation, which is asking for $1 from
each of you every year.
It's hard for a provincial student
organization to make much headway
with the provincial government when it
doesn't have the solid support of the
largest population of university students
in the province.
As for the National Union of
Students, which is also asking for $1 of
your money, they deserve our support.
After years of ineffectual half-assed
lobbying and discussions in the
backrooms about how best to do things
for students, NUS seems finally to have
realized it has got to take issues to
students to get the most effective
support.
NUS worked hard at organizing
National Student Day last week, in an
attempt to help make students aware of
the issues that are increasingly affecting
them. By supporting NUS, students can
show their reactions to NSD and the
various forums NUS people worked long
and hard to put on.
Last but not least is the $5 Alma Mater
Society fee hike.
As you've undoubtedly heard many
times before, but in case you haven't, $2
of that money would go to The
Ubyssey, $1 to CITR, $1 to intramurals
and $1 to the AMS general discretionary
budget.
For   The   Ubyssey,   CITR   and   in-
AM> IT OPENS LOVELY
VISTAS of PUBLIC Policy
tramurals, the money does not represent
any sort of increase — it'll simply be a
non-discretionary amount that will
automatically go to each of those
groups every year.
It gives the groups stability. It allows
planning for the future.
For example, if The Ubyssey is going
to be able to look into the possibility of
setting up.a typesetting shop on campus
in order to reduce some of our costs,
we've got to know that we can set aside
money every year to purchase the
expensive equipment that's necessary.
The same is true for CITR radio. It's
trying to expand, by means of an FM
cable that will allow all sorts of people all
over town to pick up the campus radio
station through their cablevision connections.
Again, before CITR can expand, and
increase its dismal listening audience, it
needs money. You'll probably see a
startling improvement in CITR if its
members are given the support and the
money they're asking for.
It's obvious that intramurals need
money. The program has grown over
the years, and students who take part
are already being charged extra money
to participate.
As for The Ubyssey, $2 per year for
more than 60 issues of the finest student
newspaper west of Blanca is truly a
bargain.
So we urge you to vote yes. And even
if you think it's all so motherhood that
you're not going to bother to vote, vote

Library closure attacked by student... and defended by librarian
I would like to address a matter
which I think illustrates a particular lack of thought on the part
of the library administration. I
refer to the continuing closure of
the libraries on statutory holidays,
whether or not they fall during the
school term, and particularly with
reference to this Remembrance
Day.
Consider the function of the
library — to provide the university
community (and particularly the
student, without whom the
university would not exist) with
academic resources and physical
study facilities.
All students on campus (notably
myself, the medical student) do not
cease their work on statutory
holidays — indeed, they are likely
to  work  harder  and   utilize  the
library more on the holiday, as
there are no classes to attend, (I
will concede that professors, and
perhaps graduate students,
utilizing the more esoteric
facilities, might well not be present
on the holiday).
I do not think it unreasonable,
nay, I think it highly legitimate,
that we should expect the libraries
to maintain at least say, Sunday
hours, on the holidays which fall
during the school term.
Woodward library has lately
been filled with students studying,
and it will indeed remain so as final
examinations draw closer.
You might note that the Simon
Fraser Library (which admittedly
has a tradition of maintaining high
standards of facilities and services
for the student) remains open on

the budget ..." But, did I not
read that the libraries budget was
the only budget on campus approved in full this year? Surely this
budget provided for adequate
services for those students who
utilize the libraries?
The definition of adequate includes reasonable hours in consideration of the nature of the
university; and I'm certain that
the undergraduates would agree
with providing minimum service
at certain times in the trade for
having long operating hours — I
don't require all sorts of pretty but
expensive librarians to help find
the books which I require.
It appears scarcely worthwhile
having all sorts of fancy buildings
and expensive books if they are not
to be open and available for use.
Richard Merchant
medicine 2
Richard Merchant's letter,
protesting the closure of libraries
on statutory holidays, reflects
some misunderstandings which I
feel compelled to correct.
First, as to the amount of use of
libraries on these holidays; while
one might expect use to increase,
there being no classes, in fact it has
been our consistent experience
that use drops off sharply. Fewer
students come to libraries, and
fewer items are borrowed.
Second, the increase to our
budget this year was for the
maintenance of collections, an
area in which we were experiencing great difficulties. In
fact, even with the increase, we
have cancelled of necessity about
$50,000 worth of jourrial subscriptions.
On the staff side, we have a
smaller full-time staff establishment than last year, and fewer
student    assistants.    Further,
contract provisions for extended
vacations have resulted in a
general cutback in available staff
time. Inevitably, we could not
carry on business as usual.
Third, employees working on the
statutory holidays are entitled to
triple time under the terms of the
contract. In a library system with
as many branches as ours, that
adds up to a lot of money, it can't
be compared with the library at
Simon Fraser University, which is
in a single building and which has
only one control point to maintain.
In short, we don't have the funds
or the staff hours to maintain
schedules as they have been
maintained in the past.
Since reductions had to be made,
it seemed better to us that the cuts
should take place on those days, or
at those times of day, when the use
of the libraries is diminished.
Basil Stuart-Stubbs
university librarian
...and attacked again as 'admin lever'
The Remembrance Day closure of all campus
libraries, save the law library, was disgusting. So too
was the closure on Thanksgiving Day.
These must be seen in their wider context. Both
were deliberate attempts by the university administration to cause anti-Association of University
and College Employee feelings on campus.
Users are expected to feel — and many probably
did — that the closures were due to budgetary
restrictions: it would be too expensive to keep
libraries open, paying union overtime wages.
In fact, the closures were designed specifically to
serve as a level in the administration's ongoing
bargaining with AUCE. Not only is AUCE threatened
by this kind of administration pressure, but you the
user also suffers: you were unable to get books on
campus that day.
Have campus libraries become too expensive to
operate on statutory holidays?
I contend not: the same administration that could
not afford to pay two or three people to open and run
each of the important libraries on Remembrance Day
and Thanksgiving Day can afford to pay a president
and four vice-presidents each more than $50,000 per
annum (something former administration president
Walter Gage never had), subsidize the Faculty Club,
etc., etc.
This is the same administration that is bargaining
with the Faculty Association right now; the
association is rumored to be pushing for a large
salary increase.
Those who don't really care about the closures had
better bear this in mind: the way the administration
was prepared to sacrifice the interests of the students
in this episode augers ill for the future.

THE        UBYSSEY

UBC lacks quality education
By GEORGE HERMANSON
George Hermanson, Co-operative Campus
Christian Ministry chaplain, prepared the
following article for a recent forum on the
quality of education, sponsored by the
National Union of Students to prepare
students for last weefe's National Student
Day.
Hermanson is also a member of the
university's board of governors.
His opinions have drawn some reaction
from Ubyssey readers who have written
letters responding to his speech. The
Ubyssey is publishing his article in the interests of carrying on the debate about what
a quality education is.
Quality education includes the following
four ways of experiencing the learning
process. Quality education is critical; it is
transdisciplinary; it is communitarian and
it is participatory.
In what I want to say, I am leaving out any
discussion of rigor, discipline and
achievement; in this sense, meaning the
methods and motives used in mastering a
subject. I am leaving them out because
while some of the traditional descriptions of
how we achieve quality are valuable, they
too much reflect the biases of western, individualistic, middle-class and white interests.
Let me expand then on my four criteria.
The creation and exploration of critical
consciousness is basic to any academic
enterprise. It is more than raising questions
of how to be critical in the examination of
data.
It begins with a question about how we
know and what it is that is important to
know. That is, it is a deeper question about
how we are constructing values and facts.
In doing this we have a choice between a
self-conscious, explicit metaphysics or an
unconscious, yet operative one.
What stands in the way of quality
education is that most of those who participate in it operate with unconscious
values; the values that lead us to isolate
ourselves, search for individual status and
security, and believe that the way we experience life is indeed "the proper way of
life."
How this particularity manifests itself is
in the belief that learning is for jobs; that
the only education that is worth something is
practical.
We judge by bottom line economics — in
fact, as in our values. We use the university
as a training ground; and when groups offer
noon hour lectures we eat our lunches along
the halls instead of exposing our minds to
other ways of looking at things.
A critical education would mean an interrogation of the concept of reality, and an
From page 4
Very soon, the administration will be
faced with a Socred cutback, in university
funding.
The same outfit that brought you tripled
Insurance Corporation of B.C. rates may
well try to bring you similar increases in
tuition fees, unless the administration
refuses to allow this.
Will the administration refuse? Has it the
interest of the students at heart?
The answer surely lies in this: did the
analysis of the role of human beings in
defining, classifying, constructing and using
reality.
This means that education would look at
the impact of what we believe or how we
construct our society.
It would be political and it would be
directed to social needs, yet it would be
impractical. It would not lead directly to
jobs or money, nor would it provide meaning
in and of itself.
It would stop the bind I see students are in,
locking themselves into the battle for good
marks at the expense of excellence; excellence being the doing of something well,
and in the process of doing that, being led to
explore subtleties.
To use a phrase I heard from a biology
student: "What's important to know is that
knowledge is a process rather than a
product." If we could see this, the meanness
of spirit that the grim, lonely struggle for
security and status creates would be
challenged.
To have a critical consciousness would
mean that learning would take place in a
transdisciplinary locale. It means not only
that our present cutting up of the university
into kingdoms called disciplines would be
challenged; it also means that the trap the
student politicos of the 1970s have gotten
themselves into would be unsprung.
Right now, students are concerned for
student needs.
These get defined as housing, pubs,
maintenance of property and low tuition
fees. This leads to student members on
boards and committees being only student
representatives.
So student concerns about what
knowledge is for, and how the university is
structured, are ignored. This happens
because students see themselves as
representatives who fight only for pools and
offices, and because of this, are representatives who can be easily satisfied when
responded to in that light.
For example, the whole question of tuition
fees is challenged on the ability of the
student to pay, without examining the
educational theory behind it.
.And if newspaper accounts are right,
those theories are narrow and elitist. They
counter any sense of the university as a
community directed to learning.
Thus I am arguing that for critical consciousness to emerge, it has to take all
aspects of knowledge seriously, and it has to
be communitarian.
Students should take part in decision
making, like staff, like faculty, like
representatives of the community, because
education is about "the whole person."
Student input is needed, not as the
representation of a self-interest group, but
because they are a full member of the
community.
So, to argue for representation in tenure
decisions as a consumer is to miss the point
that tenure is an educational decision that
students should be involved in as an
educational experience.
Thus,   the   reason   for   everyone   par
ticipating in decision making is made on the
concept that students are an integral part of
the community.
To be communitarian, students must
begin to act for the whole institution. When
they do begin to see that what a person holds
to be right is more important than the fact of
their being or not being a student.
Philosophies and political understandings
would be taken more seriously, and the
rightwardand narrowing turn we are seeing
in politics would be stopped.
We would begin to reject elitist notions of
technique learning; working toward career
excellence would be rediscovered, and we
would be richer for it.
The university of knowledge would serve
the community by existing as a place where
facts are discovered and ideas debated.
It will also serve when it acts as a place
which tries to create values for the community and when it changes those factors in
the community which need changing.
When this happens we will have quality
education.
Booklet superficial and trite
By KATHY FORI)
I knew Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Sailor had
problems as soon as I read the first
paragraph.
The rest of the 32-page booklet, produced
by student services, begins: "Rich person,
poor person / Beggar person, thief / Doctor,
lawyer / Indian chief."
In an effort to get high school women to
consider entering male-dominated faculties
at UBC, student services commissioned the
booklet last year.

crush AUCE (amongst other things) via

governmental ones, students will have only

Referendum offers opportunity
This week's referendum will provide a
rare opportunity for students to really
influence the direction of the Alma Mater
Society in a positive way — by voting no.
The Ubyssey stated in an editorial that
". . . council heavies realized an increase
in the student fees was necessary to keep
the growing AMS in business."
Why don't "council heavies" see that
most students would rather keep their
money than having a growing AMS?
I realize that many student services, The
Ubyssey included, are beneficial to the
majority and should be maintained.
But, unfortunately, many services serve
only a minority at the expense of the
majority. By turning down the fee increases, we can tell the AMS we won't pay
for things we don't want.
A good example is CITR. Most students
can't even receive CITR, and most of those
who can would rather not.
If the station can make itself self-
sustaining, great. But the majority who
never hear it shouldn't have to support it.
Intramurals are a good thing, for those
who have the time and the inclination to
take part. Why not let the participants pay
their share of the costs?
As for the National Union of Students
and the B.C. Students' Federation,
whatever their intentions, they just don't
do students any good.
If the referendum is defeated, the AMS
will be forced to concentrate on services of
wide and proven benefit. Then maybe the
average student will get his or her money's
worth, for a change.

chitecture, dentistry, medicine, law,
commerce and forestry.
The introduction also states the booklet's
intention to "explore examples of the
careers that can develop from each of these
programs," using "the help of some of
UBC's women graduates."
"What a good idea," I thought. "This will
let people know what it's like to be a women
in one of those courses." But I was disappointed, for two reasons.
First, with the exception of two women,
the most recent graduate got her degree in
1972. Three of the women graduated in the
1960s. How can the experiences of these
women help women who are still in high
school? Things must have changed.
Second, only two of the eight women
discuss what it's like to be a woman in a
male-dominated faculty. And all they say
are variations of "we weren't any different
from the men . . ."
I find it hard to believe that none of them
had any difficulties. Although the dentistry
graduate does say she "had a hard time in
dental school. It was not easy for me . . ."
she does not say why.
If women are being encouraged to enter
these male-dominated and academically
demanding fields, they should at least be
given an idea of the problems they are likely
to encounter.
Nobody ever said engineering or architecture were easy, so why not get the
graduates to explain what problems they
encountered and how they dealt with them?
Why not describe what it's like to be a
woman in an area in which the majority of
students are men? I'm sure it wouldn't deter
any women who is interested in becoming an
engineer, for example.
Obviously, the booklet was written in good
faith. UBC has no problems attracting
students into these career-oriented areas.
This can't be an attempt to get more applicants — so why not play it straight?
Not only does the booklet idealize
situations, it makes it appear to be easy to
enter the fields. And, according to the
booklet, it seems prerequisites aren't
always necessary. In fact, all the programs
have prerequisites.
This could easily be rectified by
suggesting that women interested in the
fields check the UBC calendar for course
requirements.

NSD termed partial success
Canadian University Press
About 300,000 Canadian students
were reached by activities on
National Student Day Nov. 9,
according to student organizers of
the nationwide discussion on
financing cutbacks and related
problems facing post-secondary
students.
National organizers have termed
the day a success, but are admitting some mistakes were made
and are planning further action
soon.
The day consisted mainly of
workshops, seminars and forums
on the related issues of tuition
hikes, inadequate student aid
programs and high student
unemployment on 75 out of
approximately 125 campuses in
Canada participating.
An additional 25 student unions
did not initiate specific programs
but distributed NSD literature on
their campuses, National Union of
Students executive secretary Dan
O'Connor estimated.
Involvement in the day, including the type of program
adopted and some of the literature
distributed, was left up to the individual students unions.
Although turnout in many places
was low, this was the first time
student unions held a national
campaign and they are learning
from their mistakes, according to
O'Connor who announced the NUS

Now a member of the All-African

living in Africa, Carmichael
danced around the room, shouting
and talking with members of the
audience during his seminar on
U.S. involvement in South Africa.
Carmichael said the U.S. involvement was an attempt to reelect president Gerald Ford.
Carmichael called the U.S.A. the
most advanced nation technologically, but the most backward
politically.

leadership would be meeting Nov.
27 to plan further action.
With the exception of the Sir
George Williams campus of
Concordia University, no
anglophone universities or community colleges in Quebec took
part in NSD.
At Sir George a booth was set up
to hand out literature on the main
issues of student aid, financing and
quality of education.
L'Association Nationale des
Etudiants du Quebec, the student
organization representing francophone universities and community colleges, abstained from
any support of NSD. ANEQ is
planning its own national student
day on March 22 to discuss many of
the same issues.
In B.C., the best student turnouts
were witnessed at the community
colleges, while attendance at the
three publically-funded universities was lower, according to
reports.
Faced with drastically reduced
funding which could result in
severe course cuts, turning their
institutions into vocational schools,
college students were most interested in the day, according to
Bill Bell, field worker for the
British Columbia Students'
Federation.
Bell cited the campuses of
Okanagan and Capilano as
producing highly successful turnouts, with students resolving to
carry out further work and striking
committees for that purpose.
In Alberta the story was similar,
with strong responses at the
community colleges, according to
Federation of Alberta Students
president Brian Mason.
NSD organizer Noel Jantzie
estimated attendance of 150 each
on major Alberta campuses and
said some passed resolutions and
set up committees to do further
work.
Mason noted the recent FAS fall
conference struck committees to
work on cutbacks and tuition increases expected in the next
academic year.
Committees to work on tuition
fees, student aid. and problems
facing international students were
formed from workshop discussions
at the Universities of Regina and
Saskatchewan.
Regina student union executive
Bob Buckingham was not
dismayed by what he termed a low
turnout, saying he felt the
educational value of the debates
was important and that NSD "was
just the beginning" of student
action.
The informational value of NSD
was stressed by local organizers at
Winnipeg's two universities,
although an international students
organization formed out of a
discussion on foreign student
tuition hikes was evidence of action
in the province: Of the workshops
set up to discuss the problems of
the various faculties at the
University of Manitoba, the largest
turnout occurred in the
engineering department where
about 400 students discussed the
department's threatened loss of
accreditation.
UW organizer Dianne Schwartz
said NSD "isn't a one-time thing, it
is a start of talks."
In Ontario, about 20,000 students
participated in activities across
the province, according to a staff
member of the Ontario Federation
of Students (OFS)
Allan Golombek said a number
of campuses struck committees to
work further on student aid,
foreign student tuition hikes and an
imminent tuition rise for Canadian
students, citing community
colleges as the most active.
He said the federation received a
polite but vague response" when
it presented an OFS document
summarizing Ontario students'
concerns to the province's minister
of colleges and universities and the
minister of social services. About
half of the opposition members in
the legislature were wearing NSD
buttons, according to Golombek.
All of Ontario's publically-
funded universities except for
Lakehead University in Thunder
Bay, which has a dispute with NUS
over an alleged lack of NUS activities on that campus, were involved in NSD activities.
Golombek said he felt the main
value of NSD in Ontario was "now
we have a student population
which is aware of the issues."
Five campuses in the Atlantic
region, which decided to support
NSD only nine days before at the
fall conference of the Atlantic
Federation of Students participated.
At Cape Breton College, 200 out
of the 600 students enrolled turned
out for a general meeting, while 600
students at Memorial University in
Newfoundland showed up to hear
provincial education minister
Wallace House. Students there
struck a committee of 50 to lobby
the provincial and federal
governments on student concerns.
Dalhousie, St. Mary's and Mount
St. Vincent Universities in Halifax
averaged about 100 students each
at their respective general
meetings.
NUS Atlantic field worker
Miguel Figueroa said many
student unions which previously
viewed themselves as service-
oriented are now aware of the type
of work they can do on student
concerns.
NSD was a success and at the
same time was "not enough"
according to NUS's Dan O'Connor.
In a statement Nov. 10, O'Connor
said student unions were just
learning how to conduct a national
campaign and NSD was just the
beginning of further action on a
provincial and national basis.
In estimating that between 25,000
and 40,000 students participated in
NSD activities, O'Connor said the
biggest flaw with the majority of
campus programs was the absence
of a plan for further action on the
part of local organizers.
O'Connor said the most successful actions occurred where
organizers planned a direction for
discussion, while on some campuses students spontaneously
directed discussions to some
resolution.
"The build-up campaign's work
was successful, and people saw
nothing new in the workshops that
would get something done about
the concerns," according to
O'Connor.

faculty members. While most of
their comments, especially those
of forestry and architecture
professors, are encouraging and
non-discriminatory, there are also
some rather back-handed
remarks.
Some examples:
• "There is nothing about
engineering that is sexist in
character." — Ernest Peters,
applied science.
• "I see no evidence that there is
discrimination against women in
employment (in commerce)." —
Colin Gourlay.
t "For some reason, very few
women apply to dentistry at UB-
C . . ." — Dr. D. J. Yeo, dentistry.
Finally, each section has comments by employers. Again, most
of these comments are encouraging. But there are still
patronizing attitudes that would
not be found if this booklet was
designed for male students.
For example, S. Powell, commercial training practices
supervisor at B.C. Telephone, tells
women patronizing things that any
idiot, male or female, going into
any career must realize.
He says: "When a woman looks
toward a career she should take
the time to plan for it carefully.
The pieces don't just fall into
place."
And he adds: "When you set your
goals you must be realistic and
realize that industry is competitive . . . You must also consider the effect of your plans on
your personal life."

Sweeney swallows foot for NPA
From page 3
Sweeney immediately put his
foot firmly in his mouth by saying
he would sell the Orpheum concert
hall and cut off grants to cultural
organizations, statements he later
retracted.
Revelations which showed NPA
aldermanic hopeful Abner Chong
to be this year's edition of Allan
Lau also stung the NPA.
But thestory of the mayoral race
is this: Volrich and Sweeney is the
latest incarnation of tweedledum
Kenny against
fee hikes — but

for the NDP. The crowd booed
when Nicholson said: "I support
the concept of affordable fees but
the government should not consider a fee increase right now."
He also called for more student
involvement in issues.
Another speaker, Eddie Abel,
field worker for National Union of
Students, asked students to support
the Alma Mater Society letter
campaign to the provincial
government opposing fee increases. He also asked students to
participate in more forums.
Moe Sihota, AMS external affairs officer, predicted tuition fees
could increase to $700 next year.
He said the administration's stand
worries him.
' Tt is time for the administration
to take a stand and say that tuition
fees are regressive and react to
provincial cutbacks," he said.
Paul Sandhu, arts rep and forum
chairman, said that if necessary
students will make a Great Trek to
Victoria to protest fee hikes.
and tweedledee. The fact that
Sweeney is the NPA standard-
bearer says all that needs to be
said about him.
Volrich was called a union-
buster and the Richard Nixon of
Vancouver politics by COPE
mayoral candidate Bruce Yorke.
The fact that Volrich was prepared
to run for the NPA says all that
needs to be said about Volrich, and
also about TEAM.
Yorke, heading the left-wing
COPE slate, is the most intelligent
candidate, but his political beliefs,
far to the left of most NDPers,
ensures his defeat.
Also in the race is Aid. Helen
Boyce, graduate of a civic career
in both TEAM and the NPA. Boyce
has been taking swings at Sweeney
and Volrich, making use of the
ample ammunition available.
Also vying for the mayor's chair
is Joe Kellner, perennial candidate
of the League for Socialist Action,
Alan Levinson, veteran candidate
for the lunatic fringe North
American Labor Party and conservationists Dr. Robert
Mackaroff and Jim Land.
In addition to trie mayor, the
confused voter must, choose 10
aldermen, nine school board
members and seven parks board
members. And five council
members are eligible for seats on
the Greater Vancouver Regional
District's board of directors.
In municipal politics, the name
of the game is the name. That is,
people will look for a familiar
name regardless of how good the
candidate is, just because it is too
hard to sort them all out.
This of course favors incumbents
but since only five incumbents are
seeking the ten council seats, the
race will be wide-open.
The incumbents running are
Harcourt and Marzari, perhaps
council's best members, running
together after quitting TEAM; Art
Cowie, TEAM, who has had to fight
off conflict-of-interest charges;
Warnett Kennedy, the NPA heavy
and former freeway proponent;
and Harry Rankin, COPE, who has
been shoo-in for years because he
keeps everyone else honest.
Also on the TEAM slate are:
current parks board chairwoman
May Brown, former alderman and
UBC professor Setty Pendakur,
parks board member and ex-
alderman Bill Gibson, school board
member Jack Say Yee, TEAM
president and librarian Marguerite
Ford, ex-policeman and longtime
TEAM heavy Don Bellamy, dental
hygenist Bev Ballantyne, community centre director Tom
Simpson and corporate heavy
George Taylor.
The TEAMies are running on

decrease in vandalism.
"It's not the Pit that causes
vandalism, its people's attitudes
towards liquor,"  Theessen  said.
"It's easy for people in the administration and the RCMP to look
at the Pit and say its the problem,
just because of its size, but the Pit
was actually handled a lot better
than downtown pubs."
"We had a general discussion on
the problems of liquor abuse as a
national thing. The problem is
larger than just one outlet."
Theessen said it was agreed at the
meeting that there was a problem
in the Canadian attitude towards
drinking.
Theessen added that people are
using less drugs now and more
AUS needs bucks
From page 3
Sandhu said Monday the AUS
needs the money to begin
programs to unify arts students.
With the $5,000 the AUS will
receive if the referendum passes, it
plans to:
• pay an organizer to co-ordinate
student unions in different arts
department with the AUS and
make the arts faculty a more
cohesive unit;
• finance a monthly newspaper
and
• establish an annual function
similar to forestry's Undercut
The AUS is now funded by an
annual $1,100 Alma Mater Society
grant, Sandhu said. It receives an
additional $800 from locker rentals
and $2,000 from the vending
machines in Buchanan, he said.
The AUS fears the AMS grant
may be cancelled.
"At this point we're not sure if
the grant will in fact be cancelled,
but it has been suggested it mint,"
Sandhu said.
AMS director of finance Herb
Dhaliwal said the student
representative assembly has not
decided yet to cancel the grant, but
said it is likely they will cancel it
next year.
If the referendum is successful,
the AUS will have an operating
budget of slightly less than $9,000 if
the grant is also continued.
In order for it to pass, 15 per cent
(about 750) arts students must vote
50 per cent in favor of the
referendum, Sandhu said.
Polls will be in Buchanan and
Sedgewick library, Nov. 17 and 18.
liquor. He said education about
drugs and liquor should begin in
high school.
Herb Dhaliwal, AMS external
affairs officer, said Monday the
joint student-administration
committee to study vandalism on
campus has not started its work
yet.
Theessen said he thinks there is
little chance the Pit will lose its
liquor permit now. "We're home
free now. We'll be much quicker
now to close down for one night
than we have been in the past.
But Theessen denied the SAC
reopened the Pit to get students to
vote for an AMS fee increase in a
referendum this Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. "I don't
think it would make one bit of
difference. The AMS doesn't stand
to gain much."
"I think the problem has been
exaggerated by our own press."
But Theessen said students have
been made aware of problems with
liquor abuse at UBC.
A hoax letter, purportedly from
the AMS, appeared taped up all
over campus Thursday night. The
letter was typed on AMS stationery
and said the Pit was reopening
Friday, three days before the
actual reopening.
Theessen said the letter was an
amateurish effort but some people
were fooled by it.
"It could have been done by
anybody," Theessen said.
But, Dhaliwal said not many
people saw the hoax letter. "We
didn't get a crowd coming down to
the Pit," he said.
In other booze news, the six-
member AMS committee to look
into the possibility of opening a
student pub at the site of the barn

popular Brown appears headed for

. Running for the NPA are the
previously mentioned Wyder and.
Chong, ex-parks board member
and ex-mayoral candidate George
Puil, NPA heavy Michael Francis,
evangelist hot-liner Bernice
Gerard, businessman Walter
Owen, paraplegic businessman
and social worker Doug Mowat,
investment analyst and community activist Enrico Diano, and
businessman Garry Miller.
The NPA's main plank is a
hopeful promise to hold down taxes
served up with heaping helpings of
right-wing policy. Candidates
Francis and Mowat are intelligent
and seem out of place in the NPA
slate.
Running with Rankin for COPE
are purchasing agent Jim Cork,
teacher Connie Kehoe, community
organizer Libby Davies, housing
activist Atiba Grodon, union leader
Al King, Downtown Eastside
Residents Association president
Bruce Eriksen, fisherman Jack
Nichol, social worker Paul Murphy, and community planner Sol
Jackson.
If any COPE member has a
chance of joining Rankin on
council, it is Bruce Eriksen, who
has had a higher profile than many
council members through his hard
work in the downtown eastside.
All this election requires now is
Mr. Peanut, the unsuccessful but
entertaining mayoral candidate of
1974. Given the choices offered this
year, I suspect Mr. Peanut would
have done better the second time
around.

Football 'Birds end great season
By TOM BARNES
The UBC football team's most
successful season ever came to a
sudden end Saturday in London,
Ont. when they went down to defeat
30-8 at the hands of the University
of Western Ontario Mustangs.
The 'Birds dug themselves into a
hole so deep in the opening quarter
they were unable to get out for the
remaining of the game. UBC's all-
conference fullback Gord Penn
suffered a knee injury on the first
play of the contest. On the next
play quarterback Dan Smith was
intercepted at the UBC 38-yard
line. Mustang quarterback Jamie
Bone took just two plays to convert
the turnover into seven points.
Western's outstanding fullback
Rick Scarborough scored the
touchdown on an 18-yard run. Paul
Ford converted.
Without Penn the UBC offence
was not able to move the ball and a
bad punt by Al Chorney kept the
Birds deep in their own end. The
defense held the Mustangs at bay
but UBC was again unable to move
the ball from inside their own 10.
This time Chorney's punt was
blocked near the goal line.
Defensive   end   Murray   Watson
picked up the ball and scored the
second Western touchdown and
Ford converted again.
Glen Wallace fumbled the ball
away on the next series for UBC
and Western recovered on the
Bird 16. Scarborough scored on
McKechnie Cup lures eager 'Birds
as thick fog rolls over rugby field
By TOM BARNES
The UBC Thunderbirds rugby
team downed the Vancouver Reps
16-7 on Remembrance Day, on
their first leg of a quest to
recapture the McKechnie Cup.
UBC won the trophy in 1974 and
1975, but lost it earlier this year to
the Reps.
Thursday's game was physical
and patchy in spots but to most of
the several hundred fans it was
Hoopettes drop two
The Thunderettes lost their first
two league basketball games on
the weekend to the Calgary Din-
nies.
The Thunderettes dropped two
six-point games, 44-38 and 52-46.
Team member Margot Mc-
Cullough said afterwards: "They
were never more than a few points
ahead and in both games we were
tied at half time. With a home court
advantage we should beat them."
The Thunderettes will host
Calgary in January.
Top scorers were Linda Broatch
with 13 points in the first game and
Louisa Zerbe who scored 17 in the
second. Top rebounder was Mc-
Cullough.
"For most of the team this was
their first league game," Zerbe
said Monday. "They lack the experience of league competition."
The Thunderettes take on

War Memorial Gym.
little more than a rumor as thick
fog blanketed the field at Thunderbird Stadium.
A tenacious Vancouver side
attempted to intimidate the 'Birds
with a hard-hitting physical style
of play that degenerated into
chippiness at times. This tactic
proved unsuccessful as UBC's big
men, Ro Hindson, Dave Eburne,
and the three Carson brothers,
(Frank, Dennis, and Don) were
able to carry the day.
Graham Street put Vancouver
into an early lead with an unconverted try.
Don Carson and Elill Carson got
the 'Birds on the move when they
hit Vancouver scrum-half Dennis
Quigly near midfield with sufficient force to knock the ball loose.
UBC's scrum-half Preston Wiley
scooped the ball up and raced up
field. Fly half John Billingsley took
a pass from Wiley and carried the
Soccer 'Birds 3rd in tourney
By PAUL WILSON
The Concordia University Stingers won the
Canadian Intercollegiate Athletic Union soccer
championship Sunday when they defeated the
Dalhousie Tigers 2-1 in overtime.
The Thunderbird soccer team placed third in the
same tournament by defeating the University of
Toronto Blues 2-1 in overtime. The 'Birds were down
at the half by one goal but Roy Zuyderduyn came off
the bench in the Second half to tip a cross pass from
Ron Hurley past the Blues goalkeeper.
The game then went into a five-minute overtime
period in which John Nelson get the winner to give the
'Birds their consolation round victory.
In their semi-final game played Saturday the 'Birds
were defeated by the Dalhousie Tigers 3-2, again in
overtime. At the half the Tigers had a two-goal lead
but the 'Birds came back before the final whistle to
tie it up 2-2. The goals were scored by Ken Garrett
and Claudio Morelli.
The overtime period was very close with lots of
good scoring chances for both clubs. With just two
minutes to go Dalhousie finally connected for the
winner after a scramble in front of the 'Bird net. The
'Birds allowed theTigers to take five successive shots
on UBC goalkeeper Lyle Watkinson, the last one
finding the mark.
UBC coach Joe Johnson said, "no rebounds can be
allowed, the goalie just doesn't have a chance. It's too
bad that we had to go so far and end our cup play that
way."
All the games were played in below zero temperatures on a field that had varying amounts of snow
and ice on it. On the final day play was slowed down
by a 30-foot strip of snow at centre field when the rest
was clear.
The tournament was Concordia's fifth try in as
many years for the national title and Johnson said,
"they have played and hosted the tournament for so
many years maybe it was their turn."
The 'Birds must now catch up on about four league
games which they have missed. A B.C. Senior Soccer
league meeting will be held Wednesday to decide
when the games will take place.
ball through most of the Vancouver
defenders. He passed to Dave
Benthall near the ten yardline,
Benthall threw the ball to Frank
Carson who in turn gave the ball to
lock Dave Eburne and then helped
push Eburne into touch.
UBC's second try was started
with a break by centre Rob Greig.
Greig got the ball over to
Billingsley who made a nifty run
up field to inside the Vancouver 20
before passing to hook Larry
Chung. Chung ran into heavy
traffic at the ten but got the ball to
Hindson who went over for the try
taking two defenders with him.
Wiley converted to but the 'Birds
up 10-4.
Just before the half Street
brought Vancouver to within three
points with a drop goal.
Vancouver threatened
throughout the second half, three
times they got inside the UBC 10,
each time they were turned back
empty handed. UBC's defensive
stands were keyed by fine tackling
by the backs and timely kicks by
full back Graham Taylor.
The 'Birds sewed the game up
with a late try. Wiley went blind to
Hindson who scampered down the
sideline for the try. Wiley converted again.
"We weren't able to run as much
as we wanted because of the
pressure from the Vancouver
side," said Dennis Carson.
Nevertheless UBC showed signs of
the potent, wide-open running
game it is famous for. Billingsley
had a strong game and showed no
sign of a nagging shoulder injury.
On Saturday the 'Birds ran their
season record to 12-2 with a 22-4
win over the Georgians. Robin
Russel led the way for UBC with
two tries. John Olson, Jim Bur-
nham and Grieg each scored one.
Grieg also added the only convert
of the game. Charles Teeple scored
the lone try for the Georgians.

the next play. Ford converted and
Western had a quick 21-0 lead.
Ford added a field goal and a
single before the end of the quarter
to put the Mustangs up 25-0.
From that point on the play was
even and UBC actually outscored
Western 8-6 in the remaining three
quarters.
Greg Gardiner replaced Smith at
quarterback and moved the 'Birds
well as they dominated the second
quarter. The muddy field and the
absence of Penn forced UBC to
look to the air to move the ball.
This Gardner did to great advantage. He consistently found
Even Jones and Tom Riemer open.
UBC got on the scoreboard when
Gardner hit Jones for a 15-yard
touchdown pass. Gary Metz converted.
Metz added a single on the
Birds' next possession when a long
UBC drive died on the Mustang
eight-yard line. The half ended
with the score 25-8.
Ford added a field goal and a
single in the third quarter for the
Mustangs then another single late
in the game.
Neither team was able to
dominate the other as the muddy
field became the major opponent
for both sides.
The loss of Penn and early
mistake by the 'Birds were clearly
fatal to UBC's chance to go on to
the College Bowl. Statistically the
two teams were just about even
throughout the contest.
Four Birds were named to the
WIFL all-star team last week.
Fullback Gord Penn, tight end
Evan Jones, offensive tackle Al
Cameron and defensive end John
Turecki were all named.
Penn was named the WIFL's Hee
Creighton nominee as the outstanding player. The award will be
presented this week, though Penn's
chances will no doubt be hurt by
the fact (he Eastern media were
. not able to see him play. In any
case Penn will be back next year
and will have a chance, like the
'Birds as a whole, to show
everyone just how good he.is.
Smith expects to lose but four
players from this year's squad and
will begin recruiting almost immediately to fill the holes. Next
year's squad will be able to take up
where this year's team left off
without too much trouble.
