Array Admin grabs study space
The removal of study carrals from Brock
Hall by the UBC administration has sparked
anger among students who formerly studied
According to faculty and student affairs
vice-president Erich Vogt's office the study
area at Brock will be turned into student
counselling offices. No indication was given
as to how much, if any, of the space will be
offices, and how much will remain study
The loss of the Brock Hall carrals means
that students are left with few places to
Brock Hall users have been vocal in the
past when they protested the closure of Brock
Hall for the annual Brock Hall book sale, but
caught off guard at the beginning of winter
session, students are left out in the cold with
only signs and posters to display their displeasure.
During the past few years, demand for
study space has risen along with increased
student enrolment. Space was allotted for
studying in Main and Sedgewick libraries,
and Brock Hall, the former student union
building which the administration has run as
a study hall for 12 years.
Carrals have been in great demand and this
year, as usual, many students came early to
reserve a carral for the year. To their dismay
these students returned this week to find
Brock Hall empty and their books neatly piled beside the walls.
Signs are the main form of communication
because few, if any, people use Brock Hall
now. One sign lies on the floor covering one
student's books: "Please do not remove!!
Please respect other people's signs!!"
Another sign, put up by the Women Stu
dents' Office, offers the use of the Women
Students' Lounge to female students.
An angry sign is posted on the doors asking
students to sign a petition: "To Dr. Vogt,
Vice-President, Faculty and Staff Affairs:
We, the undersigned studenjs, feel it is unfair
of you to take away our study carrals. If you
must move them, couldn't you at least move
them to another study area instead of storing
Yet another sign urges affected students to
phone either Erich Vogt (228-5454) or Neville
Smith of physical plant (228-4162).
Vogt was in a meeting yesterday morning
and has left town for 10 days. Smith was unavailable for comment at press time.
Few places are now left for students to
study. The carrals in Main Library are for
fourth year and graduate students who use
those facilities extensively. Sedgewick library
now has the largest number of carrals. But at
lunch time the study space is filled completely.
Finding a place to study during exams has
always been tough, but this year, unless more
space is found, students will have to leave the
campus to find a place to study.
The lack of adequate study space is not
unique to UBC — SFU and many of the community colleges are also experiencing shortages of space which parallel the general
crowding in the housing market and classroom space.
"There are complaints," said Lew Cottell
of the Simon Fraser Student Society. "It's
been an ongoing complaint and struggle since
I came to this university eight years ago."
Although the study space problem is an
ongoing one and shows no sign of improvement, there have been no efforts by either the
university or the AMS to relieve the situation.
No housing
Canadian University Press
Homeless B.C. students aren't
alone in their misery — the student
housing situation across Canada is
just about as bad.
At the University of Waterloo,
housing officials are holding a lottery to determine the 50 lucky students who will be able to live in residence. More than 100 have already
applied for the vacancies.
Swamped by student demand, the
university's housing office was forced to appeal to the public for more
rooms. Radio, television and newspaper advertisements still carry the
message that students are in desperate need of housing.
The campaign has uncovered
more than 200 additional beds.
Housing director Al Woodcock
said the housing shortage has put
extra pressure on residence facilities, as students from the U of
Waterloo, Wilfred Laurier University and Conestoga College scramble for accommodation.
Woodcock said families moving
into the traditional student ghetto
area, combined with a general slowdown in building, is largely responsible for the situation.
University of Alberta residences
years because Edmonton's vacancy
rate has dropped to almost one per
cent, said hjousing registry director
Tracy Kuhtz.
The university's housing and
food services is operating a temporary emergency relief program
for students who fail to find accommodation.
Fifty to 75 dormitory rooms are
available for $6 a night, but students can only stay for three days.
Rent increases of 20 per cent are
becoming more common for available housing, a drastic increase
since rent controls were recently removed.
Kuhtz said Edmonton students
are paying from $150 to $250 for
shared accommodation, while one
bedroom apartments are going
from $250 to $400.
The student union and the University of Calgary administration
teamed to organize an Off-Campus
Housing Week in August,'as the vacancy rate in the city's university
district plummeted to less than .6
per cent.
Campus residences received 1,000
applications for the 700 available
spaces, while another 350 people
are waiting for space in the family

UBC suspends
convicted Kane
Wednesday's suspension of UBC
professor Julius Kane represents the
first stage in a dismissal procedure
undertaken by the university administration.
Kane was relieved of his teaching
duties by UBC president Doug Kenny pending further actions which
may lead to the termination of
Kane's appointment at UBC within
the month, the administration said
in a statement Wednesday.
Kenny initiated the action after
reviewing the transcript of Kane's
trial last June. Kane was convicted
on two counts of theft from a Canada Council research grant.
But Kane will continue to be on
the UBC payroll until he is permanently suspended, in accordance
with the faculty association contract, administration spokesperson
Al Hunter said.
It was found during the June trial
that the UBC animal resource ecology professor misused grant money
by paying National Research Council money to two students working
on his personal business interests.
Kane was convicted and fined
$2,500 on each count. He was ini
tially charged with seven counts of
theft but was found not guilty on
four of the charges and the fifth
was dismissed.
Kane will meet with Kenny to discuss his dismissal before further action is taken. Hunter said he
"would be very surprised if the
meeting was not held before the
month's end."
Should Kenny proceed with the
termination of Kane's appointment, Kane would have 30 days to
request a three-person hearing on
the matter.
Hunter said the hearing would include one person selected by Kane,
one by Kenny, and one person chosen collectively by both parties. The
hearing committee decision would
be final.
Kane's eligibility to stay at UBC
depends on whether he can convince Kenny that he was indeed
undergoing a state of stress during
1976 when he misused the research
grant funds.
Kane's   defense   lawyer   David
Roberts argued in court that Kane
was disturbed by personal problems
that affected his ability to meet

AMS prez defends project
The Alma Mater Society intends to go ahead with
plans to build a $1.5 million south side centre for recreational use rather than put money towards student
housing despite internal criticism of the scheme.
AMS external affairs coordinator Alan Soltis charged Monday that the AMS was misusing the building
fund levy.
But AMS president Bruce Armstrong disagrees.
"Historically the AMS has been concerned with
campus recreational facilities, not with housing," said
Armstrong. "UBC for years was sadly lacking in recreation buildings and it was the AMS which funded the
building of Brock Hall, War Memorial gym, SUB and
contributed to the construction of the Aquatic
During the summer the AMS proposed building a
south side centre which would house a pub and a
"Basically the Pit only seats 350 people and a lounge
is needed on the south end of campus, so the campus
could do with another recreational building," said
The AMS plans to present students with a package
of the proposed building and they may hold several
public forums.
"A referendum will go out around the end of October asking students to vote yes or no on the south side
centre," said Armstrong. If the referendum is passed
by the students then the proposal will go before a university committee to get the final go-ahead, he added.
Armstrong said it is not feasible for the AMS to finance student housing without a partnership with interest rates currently at 13'/i per cent. "But the university was turned down by UCBC (the Universities
Council of B.C.) for funds for renovating Acadia Park
so basically the university couldn't afford to go into a
partnership right now," said Armstrong.
"Personally I would like to see the provincial government providing funds for housing and members of
the SHAC (student housing and access) committee are
currently working on this proposal," he added.
Armstrong said the south side centre could be built
with AMS funds without help from the university or
subsidizing with bank loans. "It will also fill a need for
a student lounge'area," he said. Page 2

Whistler referendum coming up
UBC students could be asked to
approve an Alma Mater Society
purchase of 2.1 acres of land in
Whistler this year if negotiations
with Whistler town council are successful.
The AMS' Whistler ski cabin is
located on the site, which is part of
a 66-acre parcel of crown land that
the provincial ministry of housing is
turning over to the municipality of
The AMS is currently in negotiations with the ministry and
municipality on the purchase but
the cost of the land deal has not yet
been finalized. According to
Whistler officials the AMS site is
estimated to be worth about
$150,000 but the price to the AMS
could be as low as $5,000. The purchase would have to be approved by
students in a referendum vote.
There are four additional cabins
in the area run by groups from
SFU, BCIT and other outdoor
associations. The cabin lots total
approximately 10 acres and are leas-,
But the provincial government
does not want to be responsible for
the cabin lands any more according
to Whistler alderman Al Raine. The
lack of adequate fire access and septic systems was felt after a cabin
burned down over the Christmas
holidays said a government official.
The government was not willing to
pay for improved fire access. But
neither was the Whistler Council.
Negotiations are underway to sell
the cabin lands plus an additional
56 acres to the Whistler Council for
$1. The council plans to develop at
least 44 acres and sell them in order
to raise funds to improve the access
to the cabin sites.
"The municipality does not want
to see a lot of development on the
property which includes the
cabins," said negotiator and
Whistler alderman Al Raine.
"We're trying to service the property without spending the taxpayers'
Raine said the move by the council to sell the sites to the cabin
owners is also designed to save
money — for the owners. "Right
now the leases cost between $300
and $500 a year," he said. "But
University's administration will not
be introducing new student aid
plans for foreign students who face
a 250 per cent increase in their tuition fees next January.
Students affected are those who
registered before September, 1978
when the Quebec government introduced differential fees. At the time
they were given a three- to four-year
exemption depending on their
McGiU's foreign students now
pay $50 a credit, while Canadians
pay $19. Foreign students registered
in architecture, dentistry and medicine before September, 1978, are
still exempt.
The administration has not yet
received anyv requests for aid from
students affected by the increase,
said Judy Stymest of the student aid
"We're not initiating any across-
the-board programs. All applications for aid are being taken on an
individual basis.
"We've had a lot of inquiries,
but we haven't noticed an increase
in applications for aid. I would assume that when the fee hike hits in
January, and reality sets in, a lot
more people will be applying for
they (the leases) can be increased
every five years and I understand
the provincial government wants to
increase them to eight per cent of
market value."
The council intends to sell the
sites to the cabin owners for much
less than market value, Raine said,
but actual costs have not been
determined yet. It has also offered
to help finance the purchase if
groups cannot raise the funds easily.
"The AMS is very interested in
acquiring the cabin site," Craig
Brooks, AMS director of administration said Wednesday. "It
would be an asset to the society and
secure a place up at Whistler for
students in the future."
But the final decision will not be
made until the cost is known. According to Raine, the land occupied
by the cabins is worth around
$750,000, but the town council is
considering selling it for $50,000.
The council will protect its interests though by changing the zoning to "transient residential use" to
prevent the cabins from being turned into hotels,-Raine said. The
council will also ensure it has first
option on the land should it be
resolved, he added.
"We want to make sure they
don't become hotels," said Raine,
"that is, offering rooms to the
public at large."
But there may be a problem with
the sale, said Raine. He said Tuesday that the provincial government
was changing the price of the 66
Provincial housing and development manager for the lower
mainland Ray Skelly denied the
allegation. "Our policy has always
been land for $1," he said, "but
there are many ways of looking at
land costs."

fate for Main library, Sedgewick and classroom buildings. Brock Hall, built

Six bookstores in one planned
Construction will begin on a new
multimillion dollar bookstore for
UBC early next year.
The $5 million bookstore will be
about one-half as big as the armoury, making it the largest such facility in Canada.
Bookstore director John Hedgecock said Wednesday, "the new facility will be next to the biological
science building, behind University
Boulevard, and will be like having
six bookshops under one roof. It
will be arranged like the departments in a department store with
the' books arranged according to
One of the new system's major
advantages will be the development
of specialized staff within the departments. The staff will be able to
offer more help than is currently
available, because they will be familiar with their particular department. The inventory will also be
greatly expanded.
Hedgecock said the new system
will be "a far-more viable way of
running a proper bookstore."
The final bookstore construction
plan was approved in July by the
board of governors. It will be loaned money for construction but
plans call for the bookstore to eventually pay for itself.
Some of the construction money
will also be coming from the old
bookstore's building fund which
has accumulated roughly $700,000
over the past 10 years.
Hedgecock claims the main
reason the bookstore does not have
more money to contribute to the
construction fund is because it has
been losing money on the sale of
textbooks. The bookstore's profits
come from sales of items such as
calculators, T-shirts and stationery,
he said.
The estimated profits for the
bookstore this year are $200,000,
according to Hedgecock, an increase of $70,000 over last year.
Detailed planning and drawing is
now under way for the bookstore,
designed by Zoltan Kiss and Partners. The same firm also designed
the grad centre.
Hedgecock said he is pleased the
firm used such a creative design and
is very excited about the new bookstore. He said he hopes it will be
completed by November of 1981.
"At present no other user is specified for the old bookstore but I
am sure that they will find a temporary user eventually," Hedgecock said.
Course quality on the decline
UBC's academic standards are seriously threatened
by lack of provincial government funding, the UBC
senate was told Wednesday night.
Because funding has not kept up with the rate of inflation, UBC's financial situation is so tight that there
is "very little the university can do in the way of
renovation ... savage pruning may be forced upon the
university," said Donald MacDougall, chair of the
senate budget committee.
UBC president Doug Kenny concurred with MacDougall, saying academic standards are in such jeopardy that "we are on the slippery slope to a mediocre
society."       >
Kenny said the financial situation is so desperate the
university will soon have to cut back on academic
"One can talk of cutting out the fat, but that's
nonsense at this university, We're cutting into the
bone," he said.
Science dean Cy Finnegan said lack of funds is
already seriously affecting first year computer science
"We had to stop registration at noon Friday because
the courses were full," he said.
The problem was later solved by placing additional
students into already full classes, Finnegan said. But
he pointed out that overflow classes lowered academic
standards, and predicted the situation would be even
worse next year.
He said that adequate funding would have
prevented this problem.
Budget committee member John Dennison partially
blamed the Universities Council of B.C. principle of
"formula financing" for the funding crisis.
"Formula financing looks fair until the formula is
applied," he said, and added that in Ontario the principle has led to "competition for students, which is indignant," because funding was based on enrolment. Page 4

Robbed of our space
It's time to join the former inhabitants of Brock Hall and protest the autocratic takeover of
student study space by the
student-hating administration.
Before we get hit with a libel
suit, let's justify the rhetoric.
Brock Hall was built partially
with students' money and run
by students until the administration ever-so-nicely relieved us of
the tedium and hard work of
running our own building. They
generously allowed students to
continue studying in the hall.
They even ensured that there
was a little bit of studying space
dotted around the rest of the
campus for special student
groups. But all this support for
studying students came to a
halt this week.
If students had been given
some notice that the end was
near, if alternative study halls
had been established, if Erich
Vogt was willing to stay around
campus and account for his actions — then maybe we could
pass this off as just another
plausable attempt by the administration to discourage
students from hanging around
the campus and getting in its
But the ruthlessness with
which persons unknown removed the carralls, piled up valuable
texts and obliterated all the
general study space only serves
to highlight the growing certainty that the people who run this
university just don't give a
damn about the people they're
running it for.
It's a great way to start off
the year, isn't it? Gives you a
nice warm feeling that the ad
ministration is going to take
good care of your interests and
concerns for the next eight
months, doesn't it?
What really concerns us is
that the administration has
come down heavy in the first
week of classes. Let's hope it's
just an isolated incident. Or
we're in big trouble.
AMS right,
but wrong
Alma Mater Society president Bruce Armstrong is right. (Oh
God, did we really say that?) As is vice president Marlea Haugen.
Student residences built by the AMS would be expensive and
We don't need the nasty experience of the University of Alberta
student society to tell us this. We need only common sense to
realize most students would rather not live in the concrete zoos
that the residences inevitably become in order to join with the
AMS in backing off from building such dehumanizing dormitories.
The job of building residences belongs to the provincial government, despite their unwillingness to face this fact. They've fudged on building housing before. And for two years now they've
refused to provide adequate funding for renovating and maintaining Gage towers to make them livable.
UBC and the University of Victoria have had to cope with ratios
of student housing to students which are near to the lowest in
Canada. They've had to fight tooth and nail just for the money to
keep the facilities available from falling apart.
Not this lets the AMS off the hook. Not by a long way.
The fact is, there is a shortage of housing in Vancouver. The
forecast is that this shortage will last a long time. For some reason
people seem to like this place.
This means, at least for this year, that students who normally
would be living off-campus are clawing and gouging to get into
the residences they would really rather not be living in.
If the AMS were to invest in off-campus property to turn into
student cooperative housing there would be no danger of losing
our money, nor would they lack applicants for AMS-backed student housing.
A simple, cheap, fool-proof idea. But we'll never see it so long
as the AMS prefers to keep us drunk in $1.5 million worth of unnecessary bars rather than house us in cooperative residences for
the same price.

To the director of the UBC
Aquatic Centre.
As a student who makes great use
of UBC's pool facilities, both
within the prescribed student, staff
and faculty swimming hours and at
other times, I recently inquired
about purchasing a pass. I was
shocked to learn that a student's
pass for four months is $25 — a
mere $5 less than the price for a
pass for any adult in Vancouver,
regardless of an affiliation with
UBC. Considering that UBC
students already pay $5 in annual
pool fees through their tuition, this
puts the price of a student's term
pass in line with that for an outsider. This makes me wonder
whether the pool was designed and
constructed for the university community or for the general population of Vancouver. If the pool is indeed meant for the students, staff
and faculty of UBC, perhaps the
fees should reflect this.
Having brought this matter to
your attention, 1 should also like to
mention that a copy of this letter
has been sent to The Ubyssey.

several Afghans my friends. This
has had the effect of bringing that
conflict very close to my heart. I
must say that I am shocked and disappointed by the response of the international community, Canada in
particular, towards this obvious
suppression of the Afghan people's
right to self-determination.
The continued sale of wheat to
Russia makes a mockery of the
Olympic boycott and shows the
hypocritical stance the so-called
"free world" takes. Rhetoric, fine,
symbolic protests okay, but let
there be something which affects

principles to the highest bidder!
This stance is deplorable, and
dangerous as well! If we allow such
obvious injustice to continue we are
in fact leaving the road open to further aggressions . . . and then what
do we do? Do we wait until they are
in our backyards dragging away our
families and friends?

takes on symbolic proportions

I have a plan that the Alma Mater
Society could carry out with their
building fund that would make the
yearly scramble for housing a thing
of the past. Let's build a Campground adjacent to the university.
Now, I can hear all you city-bred
moles saying, "Forget it. This guy's
a lunatic." Well, let me tell you,
you're wrong. I'm no lunatic and
living in tents can be quite comfortable, especially if you have the
necessary facilities available nearby.
I propose that the AMS establish
a facility for perhaps five hundred
tents, including washrooms,
showers, lockers and garbage collection. I doubt that many people
would want to camp out for the entire winter term but it would provide those students moving to Vancouver with a temporary place to
stay. Although this scheme would
not provide permanent housing for
more than a few students, it would
certainly end the September housing crunch.

the first 10 minutes we had to listen
to all this stuff about cups and teaspoons and gills and quarts. It's encouraging to discover that the professors are as confused as we are!
Anyway, it was interesting to watch
the guys around us all writing this
stuff down — sort of shows that the
recipe for a good physics course
would be to make it more 'cookbook'.

So what future lies in store for
this once independent land? Is it to
become, like its neighbor to the
north, Uzbeckistan, another "socialist republic?" Remember, Uzbeckistan, like Lithuania, Latvia,
Estonia and many others were once
independent nations, nations which
have now the rather dubious distinction of being "autonomous republics" within the Union of Soviet
Socialist Republics, a rather sweetened term for the Russian Empire.
If we allow the bear to roam
about at will, the only advice I can
give is to visit Russia before Russia
visits you.

governments, inevitable.
Sooner or later, by your own
volition or by accident, you will
pick up a copy of The Ubyssey.
Rather than enter this endeavor
blindly and risk permanently warping your version of reality, you
should read the following primer on
how to survive the experience with
minimum of suffering.
If you regularly read The
Ubyssey you could easily form the
impression that journalists are
psychopathically violent
heavyweight boxers. Governments
of aU stripes are constantly being:
hit, slammed, rapped, hit, knocked,
struck, hit, dumped on, attacked
and hit. So are professional
criminals, politicians, administrators ahd other ne'er do
In actual fact, most journalists
are wimps. They live vicariously
through their headlines. Most of
them do not yet know how to make
a fist and anyway would worry
about breaking their typing hand if
they punched someone.
The other important reason such
vicious words grace The Ubyssey is
because journalists love cliches and
monosyllabic words. They require a
minimum of thought processing
and also fit handily into small
spaces in newspapers. You will, for
instance, probably see the word hit
used in this paper at least 1,000
times this year. It's a nice little word
and we hope you like it.
stimulating additives that alter
perception. Do not, repeat do not,
take any cutline seriously.
Some people are under the
mistaken impression that The
Ubyssey is run by the dedicated
followers of some anarcho-
syndicalist-left-liber tar ianist-
socialist-communist-nihilist party.
Nothing could be further from the
truth, although editor Verne
McDonald did run as a Rhino candidate in the last federal election.
Cutlines are the demented ravings
found underneath a picture that
sometimes, though not often,
describe what is going on. If you
only read Ubyssey cutlines you
would probably believe that they
are written by: a) extreme, left-wing
revolutionary journalists (see
radical reporters below) or b) bad
acid casualties.
While this is occasionally true, as

broad spectrum of campus bizar-
ros, usually cutlines are simply the

By Bill Tieleman
The facts of the matter are that
most of The Ubyssey's radical journalists were found in an upper-
middle class cabbage patch. They
think that a proletarian is a professional Rotarian, that class struggle
is waged between professors and
students and that the problems of
dialectics can be solved by
telephone repairmen.
But seriously, some Ubyssey
reporters genuinely believe they are
the vanguard of the student masses,
bringing them to the inevitable
clash between labor and capital.
However, as mothers say when their
young children begin forcing
raisins, rocks and small insects into
their nostrils, it's just a stage.
Soon they leave The Ubyssey and
begin careers in corporate journalism, working for one of
Canada's two newspaper
monopolies, or they become public
relations officers for large corporations or the government.
They get paid thousands of
dollars to write what the Southams
and Thompsons want to read. They
would like to write investigative articles on the injustices of the
system. But they also have to eat.
So humor these people for a few
years while they get the young
angriness out of their system. Given
time and financial support they will
eventually conform. Alcohol also

Thomson, is what you use to fill the
space around the ads. The Ubyssey
doesn't believe in this dictum. It
also doesn't own 100 daily

Generally speaking, our ads are
worth reading. Sometimes they are
more interesting than anything else
in the paper. You can find information about on and off campus
events. You can read beer ads and

One of the most underated sections of The Ubyssey. It tells you
when the paper comes out. It tells
you that we are members of Canadian University Press, the
cooperative organization of student
newspapers. And it tells you about
the depraved sexual lives of the
Ubyssey staff members. That's why
it's in fine print.
The Ubyssey is a cute newspaper.
It likes cute headlines, cute stories,
cute cutlines, cute photos, cute
editorials and cute mastheads. Cutesiness is really a substitute for
from Eastern Bloc countries. From
these posters, which completely
cover the Ubyssey office walls, staffers have garnered huge amounts of
valuable information.
They know who Yaco Tief-
fenberg is and why he should be
freed. They know about UBC's an
cient Human Government. They
recognize the venerable visage of
Salvador Allende. Most of these
posters were pasted up during the
radical late '60s/ early '70s. Consequently many staffers still believe
American troops are losing the war
in Vietnam.

Isn't that a cute name? Page Friday is The Ubyssey's entertainment
and cultural section. Guess when
it's published? You're right.
Page Friday is put out by people
called Pooftas. Cute, eh? They

the downtown press by working on

the commercial press doesn't do
though. It covers events and subjects outside the mainstream of

I thoroughly deplore the fraud
perpetrated on The Ubyssey by Eugene Changey who claims to be
God. In an age of religious crackpots and brainwashers, in the era of
Jonestown, such fraud is a matter
for grave seriousness. I know God
and he lives at Third and Larch.
My God can go without food or
sleep for days. He has no possessions and he never has any money.
Who else but God could live like
that? We call him Steven, because
in his humility he does not want to

God stamped on the dashboard. He
has a Jewish nose, long hair and a

that? They don't allow long hair in

And his very clothes rival the
Shroud of Turin. They are worn!
Worn at the knees and elbows by
the very power of his aura. Some
misguided experts believe that the
stains show the form of his body are
not in fact caused by his aura but by
the high level of lysergic acid diethylamide byproducts in his sweat.
They claim that the presence of
these byproducts can be explained
by the fact that, contrary to popular
opinion, God is a seeker.
But who cares about the experts
anyway. One must have faith! God
has told us that eating mosquitoes is
like lobster and we eat!
As for Eugene Changey, we condemn him but we will not persecute
him. (Prosecute? There are no spelling mistakes in heaven.) We believe
that Christian charity is in order;
the courts are not yet ready for a
test case.
As for God, he continues to live
in Squalor at Third and Larch. The
cockroaches are eating his bread

cheap bottle of Sommet Rouge. He
is looking for a new place to live.

A hefty percentage of the
students of UBC are surprised to
learn they Own a radio station.
Not just any old station, but one
that's been recognized as a major
influence on Vancouver's
music ... no kidding! CITR is one
of Vancouver's best-kept secrets,
but a secret only to the students.
By Hillary Stoat
OK, this is a puff piece on the station, but if several people — make
that "a lot of — didn't feel the
place was worthwhile (frequently to
the exclusion of all else, especially
classes) no one would be bothering
to go to all the time, trouble and ev
pense (in terms of sleep) to write
about it.
We don't care if you join it or
not ... we have an immense
number of things to be done and
jobs to be filled, and appreciate,
welcome and even beg for people to
do them, but we realize not
everyone can spare the time. It does
take a lot.
What we do care about is whether
or not you give the place a chance.
After all, you do pay for some of it.
I constantly- hear people complaining about the massive number
of ads that break up the music on
regular AM and FM station. Well,
we don't have ads. The same goes
for overplaying hit songs, and the
practice of playing only the single
from an album. We don't overplay
anything, and we like to let our
listeners know what the rest of the
album sounds like.
As for the albums we play,
they're not all punk rock. We, contrary to popular belief, try
strenuously to avoid punk rock.
Very simply, we play alternative
music — alternative being that
which you will not hear on every
other radio station in the city.
If you like being a sheep, don't
listen to CITR. But if you want to'
be just a bit adventurous, try it out.
It can't hurt. What you'll hear is
different. You may not like it, but
then again, hundreds of people
can't be wrong.
Music is not the only attraction to
listening to CITR. Apart from a
certain student publication which
shall remain nameless for obvious
reasons (you're reading it) CITR is
the best source of information
about UBC. Want to know about
an upcoming dance? Tune in to the
Calendar. Want to know the latest
scores on a T-Bird game? Again,
tune in.
We're not trying to sell you
anything . . . you own it and you
are it. We just think that after last
year's burst of publicity (most of it
showing only one side of CITR) we
should let you know how we feel
•-bout it.
Give us a chance, at 650 AM in
the residences or 88.9 on CABLE
FM. For the month of September,
we're only on from 6 p.m. til 1 a.m.
But on Oct. 1 we switch to full programming: 7:30 a.m. to 1 a.m.
We're also moving to 100.1, again
on your cable FM dial.
Go ahead. Get into aural sects!
CITR really does give great ear.

Wreck Beach has gone to seed
UBC will not fall into the sea,
at least for the foreseeable
future. Nor will it cost the administration and provincial
government $12 million to keep
the university high and dry.
A summer erosion control
project on Wreck Beach has
been given a qualified seal of
approval by the UBC physical
plant and the Wreck Beach
"On the surface it seems to be
successful," Judy Williams,
chair of-the Wreck Beach committee said Wednesday. "But
it's really too early to make a
final judgment regarding its
long-term effectiveness."
The five-year, $800,000 project includes reseeding of the
cliff slopes, upgrading of trails
and cutting back overhanging
trees, Plans also call for the
eventual construction of rock
berms at the cliff base in order
to stabilize the cliffs as much as
Reseeding by low-flying aircraft and the other improvements undertaken this
summer cost $150,000.
"In this first phase it's a
question of whether enough
money has been allowed,"
physical plant head Neville
Smith said Tuesday.
Even if the project goes over
cost it represents a significant
saving when compared to Vancouver engineering firm Swan
Wooster's original $12 million
cliff stabilization proposal that
appeared last year, according to
"It's a far more viable project than the seawall (proposed
by Swan Wooster)," Williams
Williams did have reservations about the effectiveness.
"We didn't have our usual summer drought," she said.
"If we'd had a dry summer it
might have been different for
the reseeding."
Williams said that winter
storms would have to hit before
the success of the summer's efforts can be fully evaluated.
The five-year erosion control
project is one in a long line of
proposals to stabilize the steadily eroding cliff face below UBC.
Past plans have called for the
construction of a road at the
base of the Point Grey cliffs,
planting "plastic seaweed," and
dumping sand and gravel on
what is the last remaining
natural beach in the Greater
Vancouver area.
Rock and gravel berms were
constructed in the mid-seventies
and proved ineffectual in
preventing erosion.
UBC buildings threatened by
cliff erosion include the Cecil
Green complex and the Museum
of Man.

ERODING CLIFFS threatened by wind, water and humans sprout new vegetation after summer re-seeding. Cliffs
have been receding steadily for hundreds of years, especially since UBC moved to Point Grey. Controversy over
best way to retard erosion continues though. So stay off those cliffs folks, and choice real estate at top of cliffs
need not become part of Georgia Strait.

Petitions are currently being
posted at UBC in order to try to
convince transit authorities that
there is enough demand for direct
bus service from West Vancouver to
According to organizer Miriam
McDougall the present bus service
from West Vancouver to UBC is inadequate. "Hell, I could swim
across the water faster," she said.
But transit official Wally Atkinson said Monday West Vancouver
buses presently connect to downtown buses.
It is not a totally inadequate system, he said. "It seems to work
fairly well."
He added that the West Vancouver bus system offers a discount to
university students that other Vancouver area bus systems do not.
West Vancouver used to have direct
bus service to the UBC campus but
it was cancelled due to lack of demand, Atkinson said.
Atkinson did not rule out the
possibility of direct bus routes if
enough interest was forthcoming
"If we were presented with a petition backed up by some facts it
would help. If they did a bit of
work and found out how many students are involved and present us
with numbers it would solicit a
faster response than simply saying
'Geez, it would be nice if we had a
direct bus route."
But Atkinson warned that a new
bus route could take up to a year to
implement and that budget and
final policy making is in the hands
of the Greater Vancouver Regional
Presentation of facts coupled
with his recommendations would
provide "good potential" for a new
bus route, Atkinson said.

The Alma Mater Society plans to
spend another $10,000 on computer
equipment after discovering a newly
acquired $48,000 computer is
already obsolete.
"We didn't really realize until
three weeks ago there was a problem," AMS finance director Len
Clarke said Tuesday. "But what
we've got now won't handle what
we anticipate we'll need it to."
The new IBM computer was installed at the AMS business office
in April to replace the Phillips
Business Machine which formerly
handled all AMS business transactions. Clarke said the computer
lacks the necessary rhemory storage
and disc space will probable run out
within three months.
To deal with the situation, administration director Craig Brooks
is compiling a report for the student's council to examine.
"The thing is we're growing a lot
faster in our operations than we expected," he said. "If we spend the
$10,000 for more disc space, the
computer will meet our needs for
the forseeable future."
Brooks said the additional disc
space is not a necessity, "but we
should have it to derive the full
potential benefit from the computer." Thursday, September 11,1980

Research Parks
UBC's research
park moves
forward past
Plans for UBC's 58-acre research
park are moving ahead slowly,
despite a number of important
political setbacks during the summer. 	
In the past four months universities, science and technology
minister Pat McGeer's dream plan
has faded:
e the resignation of one of the
project's major movers and
shakers, Don Larsen. Larsen
resigned in mid-May because he was
passed over for permanent appointment as Discovery Parks Inc. president. (Larsen had acted as president
until he resigned.);
e a constant shower of angry
protests from Simon Fraser University students over the plans for a
research park at that campus;
e the spectre of a court battle
with a British Columbia Institute of
Technology student who moved last
week to take the provincial government to court to find out what kind
of experiments will take'place at the
park near BCIT;
e and the complete opposition
of a UBC research park committee,
which until last spring had only
been asking for public hearings on
the research park plan.
But UBC student board of governors member says plans for UBC's
research park are still proceeding,
with the university administration
currently locked in lease negotiations with Discovery Parks Inc.
Board member John Pellizzon said
Sunday that no timetable has yet
been established for signing an
agreement between the university
and DPI, although he did not deny
tha it could be some time this
"It (signing the lease in
September) is possible, but I really
couldn't say," says Pellizzon. "It's
a flexible thing, and right now it's
in the stage of negotiation."
Whenever McGeer and UBC administration president Doug Kenny
do get around to signing the park
lease agreement, they will still have
to overcome the opposition that has
come out of the summer of 1980.
McGeer can expect no help from
former Discovery Parks Inc. chief
Don Larsen, who made front-page
news in May with allegations that
he was not hired as permanent DPI
chief because he was a "visible supporter of the Social Credit party."
Although Larsen was offered the
post of vice-president, he still
resigned and claimed to be
"astonished" that he was not offered the president's job.
"I have real regret at the temporary hiatus which will be caused
in the progress of the important
work of Discovery Parks Inc.," he
said in a letter of resignation.
"However, any delays will be as a
result of your procrastination in
dealing effectively with my keen interest in following through with my
position regarding the work of
Discovery Parks Inc."
But DPI officials denied that
Larsen's resignation would have
any effect on the development of
research parks. Alan Crawford, a
board member of the Discovery
Park Foundation (and the UBC
board of governors) and Larsen's
temporary replacement, said in
May that DPI could run quite well
without Larsen.
Larsen's defection from
Discovery Parks is significant
because Larsen was the operation's
public relations hack, the man who
had created the image of McGeer's
research parks at SFU, UBC and
the University of Victoria — and
also the man who could be blamed
for the development of student opposition to the parks at those institutions.
UBC's student research park
committee chairman charges that
Larsen was not offered the president's chair because Larsen had
been "too willing" to release information on the research parks.
"The way he (Larsen) is being
treated is a demonstration of the
unholy alliance between big
business and big government," said
Marty Lund. "Discovery Parks Inc.
is getting really concerned about
their image — as well they might."
The image of McGeer's magic
research company was also blackened by a blistering attack on the
research   park   concept   from
students at SFU this summer. In a
statement released by SFU's student
society in May, DPI was accused of
ignoring public opinion, witholding
information about the parks and
permitting possibly dangerous experiments to take place at B.C.
university campuses.
"So far, all the major decisions
have been made in the back rooms
of the clubs and the corporate and
university boardrooms," charged
society president Bill Goodacre.
"Do they consider the taxpayers an
inconvenience, to be ignored as
long as possible?"
The SFU group demanded a
moratorium on development of an
80-acre research park at their campus until DPI released specific information on the uses of the park
and the measure of control the
university will have over it. They
also demanded comprehensive
evaluations of the potential hazards
and safety risks of such a park.
SFU students did not get answers
to their questions and now a BCIT
student is hoping a trip to the B.C.
Supreme court will pry some significant information loose from the
company or the government. April
Page announced last Thursday she
would take Discovery Parks planners to court on the grounds that
more information about the
research park scheme is needed for
Burnaby council and the public to
properly judge whether or not DPI
should have been allowed to re-zone
the land they are currently planning
to use for a park adjacent to BCIT.
Burnaby council has already rezoned the land for the BCIT site,
but have moved to table consideration of the SFU park until the outcome of Page's case is known.
Meanwhile, at UBC some student
politicians are fed up with the lack
of information about their research
park and have moved from requesting   a   moratorium   on   the
research   park's   development   to
totally opposing the project.
Marty Lund said recently that his
research park committee is fed up
with "stonewalling" from the UBC
administration and the provincial
government and .charged that two
public forums on the research parks
last year were useless. He said UBC
administration president Kenny and
then-DPI public relations man
Larsen used the meetings with
students last year as public relations
vehicles and "snow-jobs", instead
of substantially detailing what the
park would be all about.
In what was otherwise for
McGeer a quiet summer of bashing
cameramen and playing with TV
dishes, the continuing controversy
over his Discovery Parks scheme
must have been troubling. But now
that students are back at the universities he plans to dot with research
labs, the summer could soon
become a comparatively pleasant
memory for McGeer.
Admin sticky in parks bargaining
Discovery Parks Inc. is taking major steps to
get their industrial research scheme going at
B.C. campuses, despite the lack of a lease
agreement for its planned 58-acre research
park at UBC.
In the past month, the company has hired
four new people for important executive positions and has initiated an active program to
solicit tenants for research parks at the province's major universities. But Discovery
Parks Inc. is still heavily involved in lease
negotiations at UBC.
New DPI marketing manager Harley Kelsey
said Tuesday that prospective tenants for parks
at UBC, Simon Fraser University, the British
Columbia Institute of Technology, the University of Victoria and the Institute of Ocean
Sciences are currently being surveyed to gauge
their interest, in the parks.
He also admitted that negotiations are still
underway to reach a lease agreement at UBC,
but denied that it was improper for the company to survey tenants for the park without
that agreement. Kelsey said the companies are
willing to locate "as the sites become
available" and gave assurances that no sites
would be finally marketed until the agreement
has been reached.
But he said DPI already has some idea of
what form of research could go on at UBC.
"We're trying to get a mix between large corporations and start-up companies that can get
in with new ideas and industries," said Kelsey.
However, UBC spokesman Al Hunter
hinted that the agreement to allow those industries onto the campus is still a long way
from being signed. "UBC's conditions were a
lot tougher than SFU's or BCIT's," he said
Tuesday. "UBC is still waiting for the
Discovery Park people to come up with new
UBC administration president Doug Kenny
and the UBC board outlined what they considered to be a "hard-line" bargaining stance
in the lease negotiations in a statement last
March. The demands in that statement included UBC control over approval of all park
tenants, approval of all buildings, and that the
university be able to set environmental and
pollution controls on the park.
Hunter, Kelsey and UBC student board of
governors member John Pellizzon all agree
there is no target date for signing that agreement, although temporary former Discovery
Parks Inc. president Don Larsen had said he
wanted to have it signed by December. But
Larsen resigned amidst a storm of controversy
last May, when he charged that he had been
passed over for the presidency of DPI for
political reasons.
Larsen, who defended the research park
plan at two public forums at UBC last year,
has been replaced by private consultant Tim
Ryan. Ryan is the third temporary president of
Discovery Parks Inc. hired since May.
Discovery Foundation board member Alan
Crawford filled the president's shoes during
the summer but still remains a member of
UBC's board of governors and president of
Anatek Electronics (a company that has in the
past expressed interest in using UBC's research
In addition to hiring Kelsey and Ryan, DPI
also hired Fred Hodges as their facilities, planning and development chief and Jack Breeze as
site development manager. Page 8

editorial bias toward gay students
and inaccuracies.
Sections of the handbook under
question include an introduction
concerning the positions of gays
within society, an article on harassment of gays by police, a description of local gay night life, feminist
and Marxist graphics and a section
on drug use.
Handbook editor Daron
Westman, an avowed homosexual
and president of the Bishop's

The university announced that
the 130 admissions to first year law
last year have been reduced to 110
this year. Next year only 90 students
will be admitted.
Law dean J. R. London said the
cuts had to be made to avoid having
over-crowded classrooms and extremely high student/professor
ratios in the coming years.
He said the funding restraint imposed by the provincial government
in the past is at the root of the admission cut.
Sept. 11
SUB 207/209
"If the law school continued to
have 130 admissions every year,
current funding would not allow
these students to receive an adequate education," London said.
But he said the funding problems
in past years have not adversely affected the quality of University of
Manitoba law graduates.
One law student said. London's
reasoning was a "crock".
"It is a clear attempt to reduce
the surplus of lawyers that
Manitoba is currently
experiencing," he said.
The Manitoba law society would
not say whether Manitoba has a
lawyer surplus.
"What I can say is that there is
no relation between any lawyer
surplus the province may or may
not have, and the cut in admissions
at the school," said Brian Pauls of
the law society.
London flatly denied that lawyer
market considerations were involved in the decision to reduce admissions. He insisted that if adequate
funding was available the admissions would immediately return to
traditional levels.
"It is unfortunate," London
said, "that those unserviced sectors
of society — the poor and the rural
communities — will have even less
access to legal service."
Hairy puce blorgs in this tiny island
kingdom were shocked to discover
they had more bucks and clams
than they know what to do with. "I
know, we'll get drunk," announced
reichstyrant Goose Blarney stone.
"Build me a bar."

'Tween classes is The Ubyssey's thrice-weekly campus bulletin board. It is open to all
members of the university community and, unless your taste is
even worse than ours, we run
every submission.
'Tween classes forms are available in The Ubyssey office, 241k
SUB (northeast corner, second
floor). The deadline for submissions is noon (12:30) the day before publication. And as everyone knows, The Ubyssey comes
out Tuesdays, Thursdays and
Fridays, weather permitting.
'Tween classes notices must be
submitted on the correct forms
and printed legibly. The unpaid
bureaucrats who process the
forms will not permit deviations
from this norm, nor will they
take' tweens information over
the phone.
The Ubyssey also runs Hot
Flashes. These minute missives
will tell readers about events of
major and minor importance on
and off campus. We cannot
guarantee that news about the
aardvark breeders convention
will make it in the Hot Flash section but we do try to publicize
general interest happenings.
Write up the info on a regular
sized piece of paper, include
your name and phone number
and drop it off at the aforementioned address.
