Array Gibson gets
council chair
The provincial government
appointed a UBC professor as
chairman of the Universities
Council of B.C. Monday.
Bill Gibson, also a Vancouver
city alderman, has had a long
professional association with both
education minister Pat McGeer
and deputy education minister
Walter Hardwick.
The council is the intermediary
body between the provincial
government and the three B.C.
The council is responsible for coordinating the planning, development and financing of the
universities and their programs.
Gibson was a member of The
Electors Action Movement
(TEAM) and a TEAM alderman
from 1973 to 1974. Hardwick was
also a TEAM alderman during this
Gibson was parks commission
chairman from 1975 to 1976 and is
currently an alderman serving on
the city's finance and administration committee.
He has resigned his post at the
university effective last Friday but
will keep his seat on city council
until the next election.
"There is no need to put the city
to the expense of a by-election," he
said Monday. "The last by-election
cost the city $60,000."
Gibson said he could not predict
how much money the universities
would be getting this year until he
meets with other council members.
"I haven't the foggiest idea at
this time. The first meeting is on
Gibson said there were many
applicants for the post and that his
appointment was not the result of
past associations with the
education minister or deputy
"I saw the advertisement for the
job in the Toronto Globe and Mail,"
he said.
Gibson replaces William Armstrong effective March 1.
Armstrong has been appointed a
special advisor to the B.C. government on research policy.
J. V. Clyne declines
Persky challenge
Industrialist J. V. Clyne
Saturday declined a challenge to a
public debate on education from
his opponent in the upcoming
election for UBC chancellor.
"It's just not a political issue,"
Clyne said after a speech to the
Vancouver Institute at IRC. "I'm
not anxious to become chancellor
of the university."
Clyne was responding to a
challenge from Stan Persky,
college teacher and former student
activist, who is running against
Clyne in the chancellorship election.
Persky handed out leaflets
before the lecture stating the
challenge but he did not issue it
verbally at the question period
after the lecture.
"I have challenged J. V. Clyne to
engage in a friendly debate on
education since this election
began," Persky said in the leaflet.
"I challenge him again to such a
debate — at a time, place and via
the media of his own choice."
But Clyne said he does not plan to
actively campaign for the post.
The chancellor has often acted as a
figurehead in the past, but he has a
seat on the board of governors and
could theoretically exert considerable influence.
- "If I win this election I will do my
best for the university and I'm sure
Mr. Persky would do the same."
Persky condemned Clyne for his
passive attitude during the election
period, which ends Feb. 24. The
election is conducted by mail ballot
and all members of the UBC
alumni may vote.
"The   media   has   been   unsuccessful in getting Clyne to come

Program to link graduates, business
The provincial government is
planning a program which will
offer graduate students the chance
to work with local corporations,
education minister Pat McGeer
said Friday.
McGeer said the program would
encourage university students to
acquire skills which are useful in
today's . highly technological
society. Since becoming education
minister, McGeer has stressed the
need to put more stress on job-
oriented education, especially in
technological and scientific fields.
"Public expenditures and expectations are such that universities must connect with the
community," McGeer told the
Education and Employment of
Youth conference at the University
of Victoria.
"Things which are taught should
be able to be applied to technology," he said.
McGeer said the government
will   encourage   corporations   to
work with university programs.
He said a second training
program would give post-doctorate
students a government grant to
work with a local corporation.
McGeer said the second program
would encourage B.C. graduate
students to stay in the province and
also give small local industries the
chance to hire highly trained
personnel in technology-related
McGeer said B.C. is experiencing a brain drain. He said many
Gears design cheaper solar collector
A group of UBC engineering
physics students have designed
and built a model solar energy
collector they hope will reduce the
cost of producing electricity from
solar energy.
Richard McMahon, engineering
physics undergraduate chairman,
said Monday the principle of the
model is to use solar energy to heat
water to steam and then to produce
electricity using steam turbines.
McMahon said this would
eliminate the need for fuel-fired
generators which use coal, oil or
nuclear energy to produce steam.
The main advantage of the UBC
project over other methods of
harnessing solar energy is its cost.
McMahon said the mirrors used
in their project are much cheaper
and more efficient than systems
using solar cells.
"To produce electricity from
solar energy requires expensive
solar cells. Solar cells are really
inefficient and prohibitively  ex-

pensive, except for military use, or
satellites, or similar uses," said
"For our purposes of solar
energy collection we've used a
curved mirror to collect and
concentrate the sun's rays into an
intense point of light, which is
transformed to heat, then to steam
and finally to electricity," he said.
The uniqueness of the project is
the method used for the cheap
production of the curved mirrors,
McMahon said.
"We placed a flat sheet of plastic
into an oven and then heated the
plastic until it became soft, and
then we blew it up to the shape of a
bubble and let it cool to the shape of
a bubble," he said.
This gave us a piece of curved
plastic that had to be covered with
a reflective surface.
To get the silver-reflective face
on the plastic, the curved plastic
was put into a vacuum chamber
with electrically-powered tungsten

graduate students who graduate
from B.C.'s universities go outside
the province for employment.
The programs are aimed at
stopping this trend.
McGeer said corporations would
be encouraged to move to B.C. if
the government adopted a
program similar to the research
triangle at the University of North
He said the North Carolina
graduate programs are designed to
meet the needs of local corporations. The program has
resulted in employment of 18,000
scientists, $140 million of new
construction and 11 new industries
in North Carolina, McGeer said.
No other province in Canada has
implemented this type of program,
he said.
McGeer blamed the rise in unemployment among the educated
on the unchecked expansion of
universities in the last decade.
McGeer said he is also studying
an "open university" program. A
similar program, which offers a
university education by
correspondence, is currently
operating in Great Britain.
McGeer said this type of
program appeals to "McScrooge"
because it costs half as much to
deliver an education at home than
at a university.
He said he is also considering a
program to televise university
lectures, citing the success of a
program currently operating in
Dallas, Texas.
He said one lecturer can be
heard at 10 universities and participating industries by a special
television network.
"The lectures are damned
good," he said. "They aren't going
to put a turkey on television." Page 2

filaments hung in the chamber
above the plastic dish.
"Chips of aluminum were hung
from the filaments. The chamber
was evacuated and the tungsten
filaments heated until they became
red hot, and the aluminum, which
melts at a lower temperature than
tungsten, immediately vaporized,"
he said.
A large amount of the aluminum
vapor adhered to the plastic to
produce a mirror. The mirror was
the students' own innovation, said
"In a manufacturing process
these mirrors could be produced
for less than $1 per square metre of
mirror, which compares favorably
to the hundreds of dollars needed to
produce a square meter of solar
cells," McMahon said.
Solar energy, unlike wind energy
and tidal power, is workable
because sun rays contain a high
concentration of energy. An
average concentration of solar
energy during a 24-hour period is
400 watts per square metre of land.
"It has been calculated that
solar collectors such as these over
an area covering one-twentieth of
Arizona could supply all American
energy needs."
Solar energy is collected by the
mirrors to concentrate light into a
light absorber.
The light absorber is surrounded
by a water jacket within which
water is circulated and heated
beyond the boiling point to produce
steam heat that is contained in the
water jacket.
The water jacket is surrounded
by a vacuum jacket that insulates
the water jacket and prevents heat
from escaping, McMahon said.
"We tap the water jacket for
steam to run a steam engine, which
in turn drives an electrical
generator that produces electricity, completing the production
of electricity without fuel," McMahon said.

Cuppies elect three
to full-time positions
Delegates to the annual spring
conference of the western region of
Canadian University Press have
elected three people to full-time
paid positions for the 1978-79
academic year.
Representatives at the weekend
conference in Edmonton decided to
keep 1978-79 CUP fees at the same
level as this year in order to hire
the three staff people. Some CUP
regions have decided to lower fees
and hire fewer staff instead.
CUP is the national organization
for student newspapers at English
language post-secondary institutions. The organization and its
regional suborganizations hire
staff to co-ordinate the exchange of
news and provide technical
assistance to papers that need it.
Maureen McEvoy, editor of
Simon Fraser University's student
newspaper The Peak was elected
B.C. bureau chief, defeating
Ubyssey staffer Verne McDonald.
Delegates also elected Lorraine
Graves from the University of Saskatchewan's The Sheaf as WRCUP
representative on the members'
board of Youthstream, CUP's
national advertising organization.
About 60 representatives from
university and college student
newspapers in B.C., Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba voted at
the conference to enter into renegotiation of CUP's contract with
Cameron Consultants, the firm
that operates Youthstream for
Discussion at the conference
centred on news priorities and
news content in the student press,
job descriptions and duties for paid
staff members, a preliminary
discussion of CUP's statement of
principles and purpose and an
examination of the region's
financial situation.
Delegates voted to condemn the
Ontario police for their attempt to
shut down Body Politic, a Toronto
gay rights newspaper which ran an
article that has brought obscenity
charges against the newspaper's
staff and publisher.
The conference also passed a
motion to complain to the federal
government about the poor quality
of mail service in Canada because
of government policies that lead to
labor disputes in the postal service.
The motion called for a royal task
force to investigate mismanagement of the postal service.

Clyne wants a new constitution
Canada's failure to adopt a new
constitution allowed Rene
Levesque to become premier of
Quebec, industrialist J. V. Clyne
said Saturday.
The former chief executive officer of MacMillan Bloedel said the
essence of democracy is that
majority opinion should prevail,
but that this has not happened in
recent Canadian elections.
"It is reasonably certain that
Mr. Levesque would not have been
elected if the opposing vote had not
been fragmented and such
fragmentation would not have
occurred under any modern
electoral system," Clyne told more
than 500 people in IRC.
"The result is that governments
creep into power and enact
legislation which is contrary to the
will of the majority of the electorate," he said.
Clyne quoted an article from the
London Economist which said any
British prime minister today with
a working majority in the house of
commons has executive power far
beyond those of the U.S. president.
"I think it is clear that the same
situation exists in Canada where
the true power no longer lies in
parliament but rests with the
prime minister and his cabinet,"
said Clyne.
"We are indeed living, whether
we like it or not, under the
authority of an executive government."
Clyne also attacked Canada's
rigid and undemocratic parliamentary system for allowing
politicians to be elected by a
minority vote.
"As I have said, it has become
imperative that Canada should
have a new constitution or should
vastly   alter   her   present   con
stitution in order to satisfy the
legitimate desires of all the
provinces of Canada including
Clyne called for a study of the
constitutions of other democracies,
such as West Germany, Switzerland and the United States, so that
an entirely new constitution could
be prepared for Canada.
Clyne was lecturing on The
Constitution of Canada — A
summing up, as part of the weekly
Vancouver Institute lecture series.
Clyne suggested that a group of
experts should hold hearings
across Canada and consider the
comparative advantages of the
constitutions of other countries.
Clyne said the group should
consist of experts in the knowledge
of constitutional law, as well as
individuals who have experience in
all walks of life and are familiar
with the social and economic life of
"I had hoped that such a group
would be appointed from people
active in business and professional
life and would be headed by some
distinguished constitutional
scholar as chief justice Bora
"If the Robarts-Pepin Task
Force (on Canadian Unity) does
not emerge with constitutional
recommendations, and that task
has not specifically been assigned
to them, then I believe it wiU be
necessary to return to the
suggestion that a small, competent
group of experts be appointed to
make recommendations to
parliament and the provincial
legislatures or to a constitutional
assembly as a groundwork for
debate," Clyne said.
Clyne also criticized Canadians

Separatism will not die, says professor
The quest for national unity is a waste of
time, a political science professor from the
University of Quebec said Friday.
Pierre Fournier, author of The Quebec
Establishment told an audience of 70 in SUB
that the Quebec nationalism issue will never
go away.
The idea that a referendum on separation
will end the unity debate once and for all is
false, said Fournier.
The Parti Quebecois may lose the first
separatist referendum, but whatever support
separatists receive (probably 30 to 40 per
cent) it will be considered a moral victory, he
"The first referendum will probably ask a
question such as "Do you agree to transfer
from Ottawa to the province of Quebec
powers in the following areas? (1) communication, (2) transportation, and (3) other
areas,' "
After the first referendum several others
may follow regarding the means of transfer of
power from Ottawa to Quebec, he said.
"There  are  only  two   solutions   to   the
national unity problem; a total assimilation
of Quebec into English Canada, or the independence of Quebec.
"The former cannot be realized now, so the
latter is the only viable solution. The sooner
the latter solution is chosen, the earlier
Canada and Quebec can deal with their socioeconomic problems and the problems of
American economic domination."
Two relatively strong states must be
created, Fournier said.
"And one must shed oneself of the romantic
vision of a nation stretching from coast to
Fournier said Quebec's three major
provincial parties, the Union Nationale, the
Liberals and the Parti Quebecois, all pursue
Quebec nationalism.
"All these parties' philosophies are incompatible with the notion of a strong central
government in Ottawa."
He said many proponents of national unity
are from Ontario which exports 30 per cent of
its manufactured goods to Quebec.
"So Ontario is very vulnerable to any re
arrangement of economic relations resulting
from a separated Quebec. It is in this light
that Levesque is proposing an economic
association between Ontario and Quebec,
even after the latter's independence."
In order to fight Quebec nationalism, prime
minister Pierre Trudeau is trying to get the
U.S. to publicly support the federal government position on national unity, said Fournier.
"But Levesque is also wooing the American
heart and trying to attain American
neutrality on the unity issue. Levesque will
probably succeed because the U.S. has
learned from Cuba and Chile not to intervene
imprudently in other nations' internal affairs."
But the U.S. State Department and the CIA
prefer to have one neighbor to the north than
two, he said, because a separated Quebec
may not participate in the North Atlantic
Treaty Organization.
"Also the U.S. fears that a separated
Quebec will allow for a greater development
of socialist movements in Quebec," he said.
for not creating a new constitution
in the past.
"It is an amazing example of
political ineptitude on the part of
the Canadian people that in over
100 years we have not been able to
create or amend our own constitution," he said.
"We do not deserve the name or
the dignity of a sovereign nation if
we cannot alter the constitution
under which we are governed, and
yet for over half a century prime
ministers and provincial premiers
have held long and exhaustive
conferences in an endeavor to find
a formula and have failed."
Clyne said the use of French
must be respected in Quebec but
prime minister Pierre Trudeau's
bilingualism policy was a mistake.
"I think it must be admitted on
all sides that the bilingual policy in
Canada as it has been developed
over the last few years has been a
costly failure," he said.
"Canada will never be a
bilingual country in the sense that
everyone across the continent will
be able to converse freely in
English and French. It is simply
not practical."
Clyne said English and French
should be made compulsory in the
primary grades of all Canadian
schools. In no case should any child
be compelled to be educated in one
language as was provided by the
provisions of Quebec's Bill 101, he

stalling on
The UBC administration is
stalling on appointing a temporary
dean of women, the Alma Mater
Society student services director
said Monday.
Dave Jiles said delays in the
appointment will make the future
dean's job more difficult.
He said it is important that
planning start now for next year
and that the interim dean should be
involved as soon as possible.
Jiles said it will not be possible
for a permanent dean to be appointed until the administration's
student services review committee
has completed its report.
The dean of women's office is
■ being included in a complete

But Jiles said he was told by Eric
Vogt, administration vice-
president of faculty and student
affairs, that he would take steps
soon to appoint an acting dean.
That was a month ago.
"He (Vogt) is making it difficult
for the new appointee to learn the
job and plan for next year," Jiles
The UBC women's office is also
concerned about the delays.
Spokeswoman Susan Ursel said,
"we are extremely disappointed in
the administration's delay. The
delay could be crucial to the
quality of job she (the new dean)
will do," Ursel said.
The current dean of women,
Margaret Fulton, will be stepping
down in July to accept the
presidency of Mount St. Vincent
The usual procedure when a
dean retires is to select a temporary dean and conduct a review
of the faculty while searching for a
permanent replacement, Jiles
The search for a new dean can
take as long as four to six months
as it did in the selection of arts
dean Robert Will, he said.

Technocrat Pat
The provincial education minister is a man obsessed.
On Friday Pat McGeer announced his department was
studying the feasibility of offering graduate students grants if
their research theses are approved by a local corporation.
McGeer also introduced a program to encourage
post-doctorate students to work with local corporations to
counter the exodus of highly trained university graduates
from this province.
And he revealed yet a third program Friday aiming to
create research parks around the province's universities to.
encourage the growth of technological industries in B.C.
McGeer has been hammering on the theme that students
should acquire those skills necessary for today's highly
technological society. But that is all he has done.
The provincial government has wads of dough to spend on
the professional and applied sciences but has neglected to a
grievous fault the liberal arts and general sciences — the
backbone of the other faculties.
McGeer is obsessed with technology. He is experimenting
with novel little gadgets such as a special television network
to broadcast university lectures and he toys with the idea of
an open university, or university by correspondence.
A technocratic work force is not good enough. People
must also be educated in the ways their society has evolved,
how to deal with technology, other societies, other
individuals and with themselves.
A university education based solely on the advancement
of  technology  cannot  deal  with these issues.
The programs might be good, but only within the
framework of solid liberal arts and general sciences programs
and not in the face of education cutbacks.

Confederation illustrated quite well what is wrong with
Canadian society in general.
We're not talking about what Clyne said, but we're talking
about the tight security in evidence at the Vancouver
Institute lecture.
The RCMP were afraid that some people might disrupt
Clyne's chin wag, and of course we do not dispute measures
being taken to assure that any speaker at UBC enjoys that
We suspect that the cops and the Vancouver Institute were
perhaps a bit too zealous in guarding the rights of Clyne, who
is one of the richest and most powerful men in B.C., thanks
to his backroom control of MacMillan-Bloedel.
Of course, we must remember that the RCMP, by order of
the Liberals in Ottawa, are busy making sure that the
freedom of speech of what are called subversives (in other
countries, they're called dissidents) is as limited as possible.
The Vancouver Institute is, of course, a bunch of bigwigs
who toss bits of their enormous wealth together for the
Saturday lectures and for selected charities. The institute is a
convenient stash for millionaires' money, which of course
becomes tax deductable.
And then they provide a pedestal for people like Clyne,
who most of us have heard enough from. The provincial
government and others have been busy showering honors on
Clyne, such as the Alumni Association nod for chancellor.
There are more deserving people, such as Stan Persky, who is
opposing Clyne for the chancellor's job.
Oops, that might be subversive.

Reporter leaves boring talk
On behalf of the Alma Mater
Society programs committee, I
would like to thank all those
students and faculty members who
participated in our Quebec-Canada
series of lectures. I would like to
also apologize for the cancellation
of the Louis Desmarais lecture,
which was beyond our control.
Desmarais phoned the committee
to apologize for any inconvenience
he may have caused the students.
A letter to the editor is never
complete without a word of
criticism. I was very surprised
that The Ubyssey didn't report on
the talk given by Richard Guay, an
MNA for the Parti Quebecois. I
found it even more surprising that
the young Ubyssey reporter who
was at this event left half way
through the lecture because she
found it boring.
Thanks for picket help
We would like to express our
gratitude for all the time and
energy a number of UBC students
spent supporting us while we were
on strike.
We went back to work on Jan. 2
with the agreement that four
outstanding items, including exact
wages, would be sent to binding
arbitration. On the 13th of January,
Ed Sims handed down his decision.
Wages have been set at:
waitress, $5.03; bartender, $5.94;
Doorperson, $5.75; bookkeeper,
$5.77; and bar porter, $5.53. The
head waitress will receive 25 cents
per hour extra, and the head
bartender, 50 cents per hour extra.
A health and welfare plan will be
supplied by the employer but the
employees must bear the
premiums until Aug. 1, 1978, after
which time the employer will take
on 75 per cent of these premiums.
In terms of non-monetary issues,
we feel we obtained a good first
contract. We were able to negotiate
a modified union shop, recognition
of seniority, comprehensive
scheduling clauses which are
related to job security for
waitresses, two weeks' guaranteed
leave of absence in addition to
vacations, up to six months'
maternity leave and discipline and
grievance procedures. We had to
forego the paid sick leave at this
time in order to better negotiate for
higher wages.
Going back to work was difficult
after the bitterness that the strike
had produced, but we already have
noticed the stabilizing force that
the first contract has had on our
working conditions.
Thank you again for your support. It was your energy and your
presence on the line that made it
possible for us to win this contract.
This is a good beginning for
waitresses and it is only through
the unity that we experienced on
this picket line that waitresses and
other unorganized workers can
continue to fight for their rights.
SORWUC at Bimini
I believe she should have
reported such an important event
(PQ members of government don't
come to B.C. too often) and let her
audience judge for themselves.
This way she might have reported
the fact that only 150 people
showed up and she could have
asked herself why this was so.
I personally cannot find an answer except that perhaps people
believe they have acquired all in
the information they need on
French Quebecois from the
English media, or perhaps many
students just don't care.
On a happier note, I would like to
announce our Third World Week
starting Feb. 27 and Native Week
starting March 6.
As a preview, the new president
of the Canadian International Development Agency will be speaking
on campus, March 1 in the SUB
auditorium at noon.

Christians face the cross
Recent letters to The Ubyssey have defended the Campus Crusade for
Christ's evangelistic style. They state that their presentation was not a
misrepresentation, and that it was in fact scriptural.
Much of this defence seems based on the premise that Christ is the
answer to life's problems and that therefore the presentation was not
anti-Christian. I would like to forward my opinion that Jesus Christ is not
the answer to life's problems. Christ offers us the cross of following his
example and teachings in our lives.
I feel that anyone who tries to be a Christian in today's world, to stand
up for truth and justice, will find more hardship than happiness. In our
affluent society it is easy for us to be quick to point out "Christian happiness" but I would be interested in knowing if a black Christian in South
Africa feels free from personal problems.
Christ also said that he came to set father against son and mother
against daughter: these would appear to me to be personal problems. The
theology of the Campus Crusade for Christ can easily become a "wait for
the pie in the sky" acquiescence devoid of action.
The concern of other Christians on campus about the recent presentation is not based on a desire to criticize for criticism's sake. My objection is that by presenting the gospel to people who are expecting entertainment and by presenting a gospel which is incomplete, the Campus
Crusade for Christ is turning people off, and for all the wrong reasons.
I would really enjoy telling them off "in private," but how do I go about
telling all the people who walked out angry or early that "there is more to
it than that?"

Cutbacks fight
killed by lazy SRA
As of last week, the student representative
assembly committee to oppose cutbacks in
education no longer exists. Thus, at this
university right now there is no co-ordinated
student group devoted to fighting cutbacks
and promoting accessibility to this institution.
Like other members of this now-lapsed
committee, I'm disgusted. Disgusted both
with SRA reps and with students as a whole.
I'm both saddened and annoyed that
students at this university are so parochial
that they are not interested in the cost of,
and accessibility to, this university. Some
came to a rally last March, the majority did
not. I wonder how they can face their
younger siblings, and how they will explain
their lack of action to their children.
It seems to me that UBC students have the
classic symptoms of "I'm all right Jack-
itis." Students who are here can obviously
afford to be: most seem to be selfish, spoiled
little rich kids from the North Shore, Kerrisdale, Shaughnessy, Dunbar and Point Grey.
They have no sense of accountability to
the wider community which pays for their
education; no sense that this institution is
hugely subsidized by the taxpayers (at
about $4,000 per student per annum); no
sense that the vast majority of the children
of those taxpayers never get a chance to
come here, let alone to go to a decent
university; and no sense that students
should struggle to make this university
more open. They have no sense, period.
The SRA committee to oppose cutbacks in
education tried in its own small way to
change this. We were no knights in shining
armor, we were simply people with con-

UBC community.
victions. We had been hoping to get help
from the SRA and students in general.
Naive, weren't we?
Through its constituency reps the SRA has
links to the student associations in every
faculty on campus. These reps theoretically
try to help both the students who are here,
and also those potential students who are
prevented by structural barriers from being
here. Theoretically, that is.
These same SRA reps oversee the spending of hundreds of thousands of student
dollars, but are more interested in
questioning a 50-cent expenditure of the
women's committee than in acting on an
issue they agree is the major one affecting
students present and future.
In discussion and voting at the SRA this
past year the issue of cutbacks has been a
motherhood one. The overwhelming
majority of SRA reps have consistently and
piously expressed their support of a cutbacks and accessibility fight — so long as
they aren't called upon actually to do
something. Fewer than 10 SRA reps — out of
more than 50, remember — ever went to so
much as one of the meetings of the late
committee; only two or three went to more
than three or four of the weekly meetings of
the committee.
A couple of us tried to get SRA reps to get
either themselves or members of their
constituencies out to the meetings. They
didn't bother.
That's the trouble with most of our SRA
reps: they're in it because it'll look good on
their job resumes. Since at the job interview
no one will ask if the SRA rep ever actually
tried to do anything for their fellow
students; why bother?
Perhaps after all our SRA reps do represent students: the shortsighted, socially
uncommitted "why bother? I'm okay, I
don't care, just gimme the 80 per cents,"
that is. If this is true, it's a very sad state of
affairs at UBC. A university should be a
bastion of thinking people. No wonder UBC
isn't regarded too highly when one considers
the non-thinkers we have around here.
There is one person fighting for students
here, and that's UBC president Doug Kenny.
Students should all be a little ashamed that
through inaction they have de facto
delegated the responsibility of fighting their
battles to a university president.
I for one am not going to be back here next
year, and I'll be saying goodbye and good
riddance to a bunch of selfish, unthinking,
myopic fools. Pat McGeer couldn't ask for a
more docile pack of lemmings than you lot
out there. When eventually he returns to
neurology at UBC, for research subjects
he'll need to look no further than the
students on this campus.
I close with thanks to those who did
regularly show up at meetings of the
committee to oppose cutbacks in education:
Rich Berrow, Heather McLeod, Fred
Nelson, Lome Rogers, Paul Sandhu and
Michael Tressider.
To the rest of you out there: have fun at

action Friday and Saturday
evening at War Memorial gymnasium.
The weekend appearances were
the last the 'Birds will make this
season before the home crowd.
For UBC it was too little too late,
even with the weekend wins. The
'Birds' record stands at 9-9 and at
best they can finish third, not good
enough for a playoff spot.
Ironically, Calgary, even with the
two losses to the Thunderbirds, is
at 12-6, a record which gives them
second spot and the final playoff
In Friday's contest UBC
received an outstanding performance from rookie centre
Adam Yawrenko who scored 33
points, leading the 'Birds to a 77-69
victory. Down at the half, UBC
rebounded on the strength of dead-,
eye Yawrenko who shot an incredible 16 for 20 from the field. In
a supplemental role Chris Trumpy
added 16 to the 'Bird cause.
Saturday's rematch saw the
'Birds prevail with a 68-64 win.
Calgary mixed zone defences
just well enough to keep the
Thunderbirds from running away
with it, while UBC played man-toman defence just poorly enough to
keep the game close. Neither team
was able to control the play, and at
times it appeared that neither
team wanted to.
Donut sales were down at the
concession in the stands, probably
because of the abundance of turnovers given away on the floor. UBC
led in that department as well,
giving up the ball 17 times as
compared to 11 for the Dinosaurs.
The first half ended with the
'Birds up by eight. And try as they
might in the second half, UBC
couldn't give the game away,
hanging on for the four-point win.
UBC hoop women
fall to Dinosaurs
The UBC Thunderettes basketball team ran into a big and
physical Calgary Dinnies' squad at
War Memorial gym over the
weekend and the result was a pair
of hard-fought 60-49 losses. The
Thunderettes could not match the
Dinnies in size and weight as the
visitors controlled the rebounding
boards, getting extra shots time
and time again.
On Friday night UBC continued
its season-long habit of falling
behind early while Calgary coasted
to an uninspiring 30-21 half-time
In the second half the Thunderettes carried the play, forcing a
number of Calgary turnovers and
making the visitors look flustered
and confused. However, as has
often been the case this season, the
UBC rally fell short as the Dinnies
regained their composure in the
final minutes of the game and went
on to preserve the victory.
The key player for Calgary is
centre Holly Jackson, who at 6'1"
and 200 pounds is a dominant rebounding force at both ends of the
court. Her style, if not cute and
fancy, is effective in intimidating
opponents underneath the boards
and was the main reason Calgary
outrebounded UBC by a two-to-one
In the scoring department UBC's
Margot McCullough led all scorers
with 13 points while Karen Banfield
chipped in with 10.
For the visitors Holly Jackson
had 12 points and Jacky Shaw 2.
In Saturday's loss UBC came up
with one of its better performances
of the year as they totally
dominated the Dinnies in the first
half. The Thunderettes outhustled
the visitors and displayed rare
outside shooting accuracy en route
to a 36-28 half-time lead.
In the second half the punishing
Calgary play finally took its toll as
the Thunderettes were outmuscled
for the ball and could not keep up
with the Dinnies. Calgary wore
down UBC in the final stages of the
game but to their credit the
Thunderettes never stopped trying
and played with intensity to the
UBC's inability to put together a
complete game was echoed by
coach Gay Coburn.
"We're a one-half ball team and
this typifies our whole season,"
said Coburn.
Jacky Shaw and Holly Jackson
were again the top scorers for
Calgary with 16 and 10 points
For UBC Jane Broatch had 16
points and Lorna Calancie 2.
Next weekend the Thunderettes
conclude their regular season
when they travel to Saskatchewan
to play Oie University of Saskatchewan Huskiettes. After that it's
off to rainy California for an invitational tournament in early
Detracting from the impact of
the Thunderbird victories was the
fact that Calgary's top gun, 6'4"
Greg Hess, did not make the trip.
High scoring honors were shared
by the Dino's Lyle Leslie and
Bruce Wright with 18 points each.
Wright potted 12 of his total in the
second half, and 10 of those 12 in
the last five minutes.
The 'Birds have to win their two
remaining league games if they
hope to salvage a record which will
equal last year's.
The Thunderbirds will travel to
Saskatchewan next weekend
where they will take on the
University of Saskatchewan
Huskies in the final two games of
this year.
The Thunderbird rugby team got
back on the winning track by
dropping their old nemesis, the
UBC Old Boys, 17-11 Saturday
afternoon at Thunderbird Stadium.
The game brought two of the finest
backfields in the country together
and the result was the most wide
open game of the year.
Since the Old Boys were formed
three seasons ago by UBC
graduates, the 'Birds had only
beaten them once until Saturday.
The win was important for UBC in
other ways. It was a good way to
rebound from last week's loss on
the Island against James Bay. It
produced trie forwards' best game
of the year in the loose. And,
finally, it has the team rolling in
the proper direction with
McKechnie cup play resuming this
Centre Jim Burnham opened the
scoring when he took a neat pass
from standoff Garry Hirayama
and went 20 metres for the score.
Winger Don Halliday converted
and UBC led 6-0.
Peter Calhoun brought the Old
Boys right back into the game
when he scored an unconverted try
off an overlap from 30 metres out.

The Old Boys came back with a
penalty goal by Tim Lott and a try
from Barry Legh.
Burnham put the game away for
UBC when he squibbed the ball
through an Old Boy defender for
Leach to gather in and carry over
for the try.
The win moved UBC's record to
13-2-2 for the season, better than
almost everyone thought possible
early in the year.
The 'Birds will play in Victoria
this week, meeting the Victoria
Crimson Tide in second round
McKechnie Cup play.
Dinos drop Puck 'Birds
Mental errors and costly penalties caused the downfall of the UBC
Thunderbird hockey team in Calgary as they were dumped 5-4 and 3-2 by
the University of Calgary Dinosaurs.
The games meant nothing in the standings as Calgary has missed the
playoffs and UBC has clinched second place and the right to meet Alberta
Golden Bears in post-season play.
UBC appeared to have control of Friday's game when they took a 3-0
lead, but Calgary came back and deadlocked the game 4-4 in the third
period. The 'Birds lost their poise and allowed Calgary to score the
winner with just over a minute remaining. Dick Jellema with a pair and
Derek Williams and Jim Stuart with singles scored for UBC.
Saturday UBC blew a 2-0 first-period lead as Calgary scored three
unanswered goals. The Dinosaurs effectively shut down the potent UBC
power play.
"We just couldn't hold the lead," said UBC coach Bert Halliwell. "We
made some costly mental errors, took too many penalties, and it cost us
the games."
UBC will play Alberta in early March for the Canada West title.

We as Christians on Campus would like to share with you what a real Christian is.
We feel that those who know the Lord as well as those who have not had a real
experiencial life with the Lord, deserve to clearly understand this rr\atter of being a
Christian which is of such great significance. Some may have misconceptions such
as: 1) "I was born a Christian, I've been one all my life." 2) "Yes, I go to church all
the time." 3) "1 think that all you have to do is try to do your best, and God will
understand." 4) "I was raised a Christian." 5) "According to my own definition I
am a Christian, but maybe not by yours." Because of this situation we would like
to present a Biblical definition of what a Christian is and how to become one
according to God's pure Word. As you will see for a person to become a Christian is
not a small thing. We trust that as you read this article the Holy Spirit will make
real to you this wonderful Person, Jesus Christ as the way, the truth and the life. To
commence we would like to go back to the beginning, eternity past, to see what
was deep within God's heart.
God's Desire For Man
The creation of the universe by God was something marvelous. The earth itself was
so wonderful that at its inception, "the morning stars sang together," and all the
angels "shouted for joy" (Job 38:7). Nevertheless God wasn't finished. There was
still a desire deep within Him. Finally, when everything was ready, God formed
Man. Man, in the image of God, is the apex, the very pinnacle of God's creation!
Nestled in a marvelous environment that would fully meet his physical needs, man
was so much the joy of God's heart that He proclaimed "very good" and even
rested from all His work (Gen. 1:26-2:2). Of all God's creation, only man is in His
image. Just as a glove is made in the image of a hand to contain the hand, so man
was made in the image of God to contain Him. The great, eternal purpose of God
would be fulfilled through man (Eph. 3:10-11). God's intention was that man,
created as a vessel and with a spirit within him (Zech. 12:1; II Cor. 4:7), would
receive the very life of God into his being. To accomplish this, man was placed in
front of the tree of life, and by eating of this tree he would receive the life that
could fulfill God's plan (Gen. 2:8-9).
Man's Need for God
Before this plan was consummated, however, there was a severe interruption. God's
subtle enemy, as a serpent, came in to deceive and corrupt man. At Satan's
suggestion, man disobeyed God and partook of the tree of the knowledge of good
and evil (Gen. 3:1-6). This transgression had serious consequences! Through his
disobedience man was separated from the righteous God, leaving himself in a
position of condemnation and judgment (Isa. 59:2; Rom. 5:18). Even more serious,
is the fact that sin and death entered in through this offense to spoil man and
constitute man as an unfit vessel to contain God's life (Rom. 5:12). Thus man was
not only alienated from God but his very nature became sinful. As one person put
it, "it's not only the water splashing over the outside of the well that is serious, but
it's the contamination on the inside." How much we need a deeper realization that
through this fall, man became contaminated on the "inside". Furthermore, what
Adam experienced has been passed on to all men (I Cor. 15:22). The Bible says that
we are "carnal, sold under sin" and that "sin dwells in us" (Rom. 7:14, 17). It
further states that this sin that dwells in our physical members operates as a "law"
and always brings us into its captivity (Rom. 7:23). Oh, how demanding and
unyielding is this law! Have you ever tried to do the things your conscience knows
are right, only to find another "law" dragging you into weakness and failure? How
often have we tried our best, resolved to change, or determined to "turn over a new
leaf? Our best intentions, even in trying to please God, are short-lived and
frustrated. The law of sin and death, as persistent as the law of gravity, has brought
man into spiritual weakness and death. Because man has a fallen nature, it is
therefore inevitable that he sins. Our history of committing sins is testified to both
by scripture and also by the guilt we feel in our own conscience. "For all have
sinned and come short of the glory of God" (Rom. 3:23). How desperately man
needs God to intervene and rescue him, restoring man to God's original intention!
God's Provision—Christ's Death
Although man had been damaged and corrupted, he was still on God's heart.
Somehow, man needed to be brought back to God, to become one with God. Man,
having been separated from God, could never approach Him, so God Himself
became a man (John 1:1, 14). What a loving God! What condescension! To redeem
man He became fully identified with the object of His redemption! We are men of
flesh and blood and he partook of the same. He was made like us in all things (Heb.
2:14-18). God did not stay aloof and apart from man and his situation. In His
incarnation, Christ fully participated in the human nature, yet without sin (Heb.
Not only did Christ become identified with us by becoming a man. but also, when
Jesus Christ was crucified and His blood was shed. It was no longer necessary for
our sins to stand between us and God! He has "made purification of sins" (Heb. 1:3
Gk.). His sacrificial death dealt with the sins of the whole world ( 1 John 2:2). Oh
what a mighty and prevailing death! Toward God, "the blood of Jesus Christ His
Son cleanses us from all sin" (1 John 1:7), and in our own conscience, this same
blood purifies us (Heb. 9:14). What a release! Have you ever experienced such a
thing? Have you ever longed to be .absolutely free from every sin that you might
boldly approach God and enjoy Him? There is no need for psychological cover-up
or manoeuvering. The blood of Jesus is available to cleanse us from all sin!
When Christ died, the enmity that had come in between man and God was
abolished-. For, "when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God through the
death of His Son" (Rom. 5:10). The holiness and righteousness of God that had
been offended by man's sin, were fully appeased by the sinless offering of Jesus.
Now, those who have believed in Him "have peace with God, through our Lord
Jesus Christ" (Rom. 5:1). The death of Jesus Christ was not an insignificant
historical event. It is because of this that we, right now, can have complete peace
with God! According to Romans 5:10, we were reconciled to God through Christ's
death. Yet we cannot stop here, for there is much more.
Much More"-Christ's Life
This same verse, Romans 5:10, goes on to say, "much more we shall be saved by
His life". Reconciliation is based on Christ's death. It has solved all our negative
problems that we may have peace. God's salvation however, is not merely to solve
our negative problems but "much more" to give us all of His positive riches. This is
accomplished by the "much more" life, which is simply the resurrected Christ.
Jesus said, "I have come that they might have life, and have it more abundantly"
(John 10:10), and "I am the resurrection and the life" (John 11:25). Positively,
God's salvation emphasizes that the very Son of God has come inside us to be our
life (Col. 3:4). The key, however, is not just to know about this life in an objective
way, but to get it into us. This initial experience is called regeneration and happens
simultaneously when we are reconciled to God (Titus 3:5). To be regenerated is
simply to receive another life, to be born anew. Jesus once told an educated, old
gentleman, "Except a man be born anew, he cannot enter into the kingdom of
God" (John 3:3). To be in the animal kingdom requires the animal life, and to be in
the human kingdom requires the human life. Likewise, to enter into the kingdom of
God requires the divine life. To be born of the Spirit is to enter God's kingdom
(John 3:5). Through this life-giving Spirit of Jesus Christ, men may now contact
and enjoy God. This is absolutely not a matter of behavioral improvement or
modification, it is a matter of being born again with the life of God. This is the
product of Christ's resurrection. Just like a hand filling up a glove, God can now get
His life into man. What a heavenly concept, that God would impart His very life
into us! This is the most wonderful experience that a numan being can have! Being
born again is not just something nebulous, nor is it merely a feeling or an influence.
It is meeting another person and having this person come to live inside of you.
Little wonder that the Bible says that a Christian is a new creation (II Cor 5:17
Gk.)! II Corinthians 13:5 solidly affirms that Jesus Christ is in a Christian.
Neither must we stop with merely receiving this life. Now that we have it, we must
let it grow and mature in us. We do not need to change ourselves, we merely need
to let the Lord Jesus live in us. His life-giving Spirit will transform us! (IlCor. 3:18).
Galatians 2:20 says, "... I live, yet not I, but Christ lives in me." This is our
experience and enjoyment. He not only died for us but He also lives for us,
spontaneously doing the things that we could never do. This is real salvation. In
fact, we may experience Christ to such an extent that He makes His home in our
hearts (Eph. 3:17 Gk.). Thus a new "law", more powerful than the old. is now
working in us. "For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free
from the law of sin and death" (Rom. 8:2). We are now "free" by a higher law, the
law of the Spirit of life! This is tremendous, and this is the experience of a real
Whenever an invitation is afforded, be it to a dinner, or a wedding, etc., there
is the implication that everything has been provided for by the one giving the
invitation. Becoming a Christian is simply to respond to the invitation.
Through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, everything necessary to
bring us back to God's high purpose for man has been provided. Through
Christ's death full redemption has been made, and by His resurrection His life
has been made available. What is left to do is receive and appropriate what
Christ has accomplished. "If thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord
Jesus, and believe in thine heart that God has raised Him from the dead, thou
shalt be saved. For with the heart man believes unto righteousness, and with
the mouth confession is made unto salvation" (Rom. 10:9-10). If you would
like to receive God's life into your being, speak to the Lord saying, "Lord
Jesus, thank you for your divine love. I accept your death as God's provision
for me, and I receive you right now as my Lord, life, and Savior."
