SUB site
bogs down
in stadium
UBC's proposed $3.5 million student union building has
bogged down again on the crucial issue of a site.
The SUB planning committee
PAMONO CZAR, Sir Ouvry Roberts surveys his domain as cars pour onto campus for
first day of lectures Monday. He saw nothing new. It was bottlenecked because of a sewer
ditch being dug by contractors on the new residences. Sir Ouvry said 4,000 to 6,000 cars
arrived on campus. In top photo, one of Sir Ouvry's men directs them during peak period
-between 8:10 a.m. and 8:30 a.m., when 3,0Q0 cars arrived. —a<m hume photo
Two professors mooted
for top cabinet positions
At least two of four UBC
professors running in the Sept.
30 provincial election may end
up as cabinet ministers.
Socred Ralph Loffmark, a
professor of commerce and
business adminstration. has
been suggested as finance minister if the Socreds are reelected.
The portfolio is currently
held by Premier Bennett.
Dr. John Norris, a history
professor, will be minister of
Education if the NDP wins
the election.
He has been active in UBC's
fight for higher education,
and is chief spokesman for the
NDP's educational platform.
An estimated 50 members of
faculty are working actively
for various parties.
The stiffest battle is shaping
up in the Point Grey riding,
where three of the four professors are running.
Trying to hold onto the seat
he won in the provincial by-
election last year is Liberal
Pat McGeer, who political
writers called the wonder boy
of B.C. politics, after he won
a by-election in the Socred
stronghold  last year.
He is professor of neurology.

fessor of economics, and a
central figure in the B.C.

for the Conservative party in
the riding.
applied last summer to the administration for a site on the
Main Mall, considered most
ideal because it is where most
student traffic is.
The administration objected
to the Main Mall site but
countered with a second-choice
suggestion of a site on the
stadium field, near D-Lot.
Student council and SUB
representatives spent more
than three hours Monday night
debating the problem.*
The outcome and further
progress of the building is lost
in a sea of ifs, buts and maybes.
The planning com mittee
feels the stadium site is acceptable only if the key
criteria are met.
These include an adjacent
parking lot and bus route and
access roads to the building
where car pools can pick up
All the criteria are intended to make up for the fact
that the stadium site is not
sufficiently close to the center
of campus to merit spending
$3.5 million on it.
Both council and the planners fear a poorly-located
building might not attain the
required maximum use and
could become a million dollar
white elephant.
SUB planners and council
are presently debating whether
or not they should tell the administration that the D-lot
site is totally unacceptable
without the parking, bus loop,
access roads, and other concessions.
Other factions, notably the
engineers, said they felt that
the stadium site would be unacceptable even if the additional parking  and access   condi-

What should a young man

Why, his youth,  of course.
Chris Thomson, a fourth
year UBC student, was the
youngest man ever nominated
to run in a B.C. election until
Saturday when a candidate one
week younger was nominated
by the NDP in Oak Bay.
Thomson's twenty-first birthday coincided with his nomination as one of the two Conservative party candidates in

In sterile surroundings
A new place to beat the eat
The coffee was free, but
the hamburgers  were   cold.
The surroundings were
And you had to wait half
an hour to get served.
Students levelled these
complaints Monday at UBC's
newest and poshest eating
place—the $800,000 commissary on West^Mall near University Boulevard.
The building, which produces all the food for all the
campus food service outlets
and has a 450 seat restaurant,
opened for the first time
Throughout the day it was
busy—the coffee was free
as an opening day attraction,
But although students partook of the adminstration's
hospitality willingly, most of
the mcriticized the service
and design  of the building.
"The french fries and hamburgers were cold," said
Allan Buium, Arts 4.
"The surroundings are
sterile . . . but I suppose
they will achieve character
with use and age," said Sue
Killy, Arts 4.
"Too many people   .  . ,
too little service," said Don
Sinclair, Arts 3.
Dieticians Olga Ruman
and Doris Schuh replied:
"With any new kitchen all
the equipment doesn't work.
We also have to work out
our procedures."
Only half of the total
restaurant area was open
The dieticians predicted
that service will improve
when the rest of the restaurant area is opened.
The new restaurant has an
expensive but spartan interior. But character is added
by a huge pine tree that has
been   built   into   the   main
walk-way from West Mall.
Ruth Blair, head of UBC
food services, said the new
cafeteria will "take much of

She said the commissary

a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Monday

hottest yet
UBC students are in the middle of the hottest election battle
in B.C.
Some of the biggest guns
from all political parties are
fighting for the three seats in
the sprawling Point Grey riding, which includes UBC.
For the Socreds, Attorney-
General Robert Bonner, incumbent Tom Bate and Dr. Ralph
Loffmark are trying to maintain the long-time Socred domination of the riding.
The Liberals are trying to
exploit the gains made when
Pat McGeer won a seat in a
byelection last December.
Liberal candidates are: Vancouver Mayor Bill Rathie, McGeer and investment dealer
Art Phillips.
Dr. Harry Purdy is the leading Conservative in the riding.
Other Conservative candidates
are Alderman Ernie Broome
and businessman Dick Malkin.
Running for the NDP in the
riding are lawyer John Macey,
Amy Dagleish and unionist Bill
UBC students of all political
parties are helping their candidates with door-to-door canvassing, coffee parties and publicity.
The 85,000 voters in the riding range from wealthy University and Shaughnessy district residents ,the middle class
Point Grey and Kerrisdale
areas, to the strongly union
areas in the eastern and southern parts of the riding.
The riding makes up almost
one half the area of Vancouver.

The director of UBC's development council has resigned.
Former Vancouver mayor

regarding fund raising methods
for UBC.
"I found myself unable to

Traffic on the first day of
classes was a bit of a sticky
Cars were backed up four
miles to Forty-first Avenue on
Marine Drive, and some students spent half an hour on
the road to C-lot.
"Routes are designed to
make access to the campus and
parking lots as easy and un-
congested as possible."
So burbles the traffic and
parking regulations booklet issued by Sir Ouvry Roberts'
traffic office.
But   the   regulations   didn't
account for the construction of
the new dorms across from
Totem Park.
The tie-up on Marine was
due to a detour through construction-site debris.
Tenth Avenue and University Bouvelard, the main access
route to the largest parking
area, Clot, and the rest of the
campus, were packed.
Congestion there was blamed
on the sheer number of vehicles forced to use this route.

Ross Munro, past president

been effectively disenfranchised. "I believe this was one
of the factors considered by
Bennett in setting the early

"The absentee ballot system
does not allow students who
live here most of the year to
vote here," he said.
Because of the time of the
election call students working
upcountry were unable to register in Vancouver.
Students who were registered last December to vote in
the Point Grey byelection can
vote here.
"Students outside point
Grey and those who have just
turned nineteen have been
wronged," said Alan Broome,
son of Eric Broome, conservative candidate in the riding.
Returning officer Ken Mor

may register in any office in
the province and have his registration transmitted to his
home riding."
He said students voting here
for candidates in the home ridings should ask for an absentee

Let's draw a line
The annual chaotic game of ring-around-the-registrar

in the past, we hope the administration will take 10 minutes and dream up a registration system that makes
It seems to us it would take something less than that
amount of time to devise a better system than the time-
wasting procedure that 14,000 students went through
last week.
Even academics should be able to figure out a better
Last Monday, third and fourth year students began
lining up as early as 7 a.m. in hopes to beat the lineups
which get longer every year. By 8:30 a.m., Buchanan
queue stretched south to the Library lawn and down to
East Mall.
Students were let into the Buchanan 10 or 20 at a
time and a handful of professors—presumably the only
ones who understand UBC's system of time-table planning—sat initialing schedules planned by the students.
The line inched forward. Some students fainted. All
were frustrated. Many had left summer jobs a week early
to be here to wait in line for the administration to get
around' to admitting them.
But, the big rub came at noon.
Four hundred students were still in line when the
professor-advisors closed up shop for lunch. The processing ground to a halt.
After a few drinks and lunch at tihe faculty club
for the professors, and more time-wasting for the students, the profs returned and the process got underway
And so it went. Students who had arrived in the
morning were often still not finished registering when
4:30 p.m. came and the buildings closed for the day.
Why students should be forced to line up—and especially for hours on end—we cannot understand.
This paper doubts that it has a monopoly on common
sense. But it could come up with two suggestions for a
better system:
1. registration by mail.
2. advance registration for students who are in
town for the summer and who want to get it over with
The present system is a throw-back to the days when
UBC was nothing more than a cow college and had only
a few hundred students.
Now we have thousands of students. The administration's policy is the only thing making a cow college out
of UBC now.

off the arrival of delegates
to the 6th annual NFCUS
Seminar held at the Federated Colleges of Guelph, Ontario, two weeks ago. No
vdrbal fireworks and few
words of wisdom were heard
by students from across Canada as they sat in on the
formal bilingual proceedings
of the seminar dealing with
Technology and Man.
Even the president of Coca
Cola failed to refresh the
delegates. He, the President
Of Bell Telephone of Canada,
a rubber company rep., and
several others from business
circles gave the impression
■ they knew little about Man
and precious little more
about Technology and its relationship to man.
Dr. John Ruptush, Dean
of Engineering from Carleton, would have had us believe the Engineering curriculum to be the most balanced of all undergraduate programs.

fashion the celebration of Canada's 100th birthday and would
make a truly creative contribution," said UBC president
John B. Macdonald in a
brief to the centennial administration.
Approval of the plan is up to
the  centennial administration.
Such an approval, however,
is not expected for some time.
The administration's hands are
tied until the federal govern-
ment makes centennial grant
money available.
Project plans include a conference center with residence
accommodation for 76 persons,
four lecture and six seminar
rooms, a 350-seat auditorium
and a physical training center.
The plans would allow for
future expansion.
It would be located at the
south end of campus adjacent
to the University farm.
In a letter to John Fisher,
commissioner of the national
centennial commission, Dr.
Macdonald said UBC would
undertake to operate and maintain the centre.
"Educational institutions are
challenged to meet this growing need to help equip adults
for their changing role in citizenship, for self-improvement
and for continuing professional
education,' said Dr. Macdonald.
"Thorugh this center the resources of higher eductaion can
significantly serve the people
of B.C., and, in many cases,
a regional and national clientele," he said.
"We feel that such a project
would mark in appropriate
fashion the celebration of Canada's 100th birthday and would
make a truly creative contribution.'

Hotkey Profile
For the next couple of months you're going to be hearing
plenty about ice hockey and that's not surprising since we
have two teams on campus.
The one we've all heard about is the Olympic Team. This
is an agglomeration of university hockey talent gathered at
UBC to train under Father David Bauer, and to represent
Canada in the Winter Olympics in Innsbruck next year.
The second team is the
UBC Thunderbirds. Please
don't confuse the two. They
are entirely separate although
UBC fans will recognize four
top former Thunderbirds in
the Olympic lineup. One is
goalie Ken Broderick, who
last year stopped more flying
rubber than Firestone has tires.
Barry, "Bear" MacKenzie,
formerly a rather unorthodox,
yet punishingly effective, defenceman with the Birds has
apparently made the move to
the Olympic squad as has
another standout defenceman,
Terry O'Malley.
The fourth member of the
Birds to make the team is
Mickey McDowell, who makes
up in sheer determination and
guts what he lacks in size.
Except for a few hockey
names, the remainder of the
team will be unknown to
most UBC fans. These notable
exceptions are Brian Conacher, son of one of Canada's all-time
great athletes, Lionel, "Big Train' Conacher; Terry Clancy,
son of "King" Clancy, a former defensive giant and now an
executive in the Toronto Maple Leaf organization, and Gary
Dineen, brother of Bill who had several successful years .with
Detroit of the National Hockey League.
The Bauer plan—to have
university teams represent
Canada in at least the Olympics—-could have several beneficial side effects, the best of
Which will be an upgrading oi
the calibre of hockey played at
Taking this to its logical conclusion, there's no reason why
the universities could not be
the "farm teams' for the pros,
much as is now the case with
college football.
This type of arrangement
would have the decided advantage of giving a good hockey
player the opportunity to
finish his university career before embarking on a professional hockey career.
The choice now is either one
or the other.   A young player
must choose  between university    and    hockey,    and    the TEBBV O'MALLEY
hockey moguls in this country. i«"*i wm#«*Ei
including that "grand old man of hockey," Conn Smythe, are
directly responsible for this situation.   Such enlightenment!
So much for the digression. Bauer's experiment will be
successful as far as this reporter is concerned. He probably
will not win the championship
He will, however, produce a group of finely conditioned
young athletes who will gain back some of the prestige we have
lost sending a group of tired old "has-beens" and "never weres"
to the world tournament.
Bauer admits the team may lack experience.
"We may lack some scoring punch, but we'll sure be
tough.' Bauer says.
And we believe him.

Montana  wins  easily
A sparkling, though spotty
defence, saved the football
Thunderbirds from a severe
mauling by the Montana State
Grizzlies Saturday night.
The game, at Empire Stadium, and viewed by 5,260 fans,
proved to be somewhat of a
disappointment. The Birds
managed to hang onto the ball
for only 27 plays during the
entire game. The pressure fell
on the defensive squad.
"We had only one team in
the game," growled UBC coach
Frank Gnup. "The offence
never really got warmed up."
Apparently Montana's next
opponents in the opening of
the American Big Sky Conference had scouts at the game,
and Montana was holding
Montana achieved their dubious success by adding limited
variations to a tired theme,
namely grind out along the
ground. Nothing fancy or
spectacular as long as it- insured possesion of the gall.
They grabbed a 2-0 lead at
the haK after UBC quarterback Dick Gibbons was pinned
behind the goal line for a
safety touch. -
Two Montana touchdowns in
the second half evolved after
sequences of 64 and 56 yards.
The UBC side of the ledger,
offensively, reveals a tale of
woe. They had 27 cracks at
the Montana line and accumulated a grand total of eight
yards rushing. In the pessing
yards rushing. In the passing
were completed for seven
The Birds failed to capitalize when opportunity knocked
on the opening kickoff. Fullback Bob McGavin ran the
kick from the UBC 18 to Montana's 25. After four futile
tries, UBC gave up the ball
on downs.
Another chance emerged in
the final quarter when halfback Norm Thomas penetrated
enemy lines, eluded his shadow, but dropped the pass from
Roger Hardy, who showed
signs of leadership after replacing Gibbons.
What the Bird offence lacked
was made up for by the sparkling (at times) work of the
defenders. Honorable mentions
go to Roy Shatzko, Peter Lewis
and Garq Bruce.
The moral of the story seems
to be that all scouts, excluding
Boy Scouts, should be banned
from future games. Their
presence somehow detracts
from viewable football.
