Government in no hurry
Nicholson waffles on UEL
Mere buses
te UBC
By JAKE van der KAMP
Ubyssey Nathan Davidowitz
UBC is getting improved bus
Starting today three extra trips
will be added to the 46 UBC via
Marine bus during the mid-
morning. One trip will start from
Joyce loop at 7.30 a.m. for students
from East Vancouver and South
An hourly service will leave from
the north side of Buchanan
building every hour at 35 minutes
past the hour, and will go along
Chancellor boulevard, Blanca,
Tenth, Alma and back via Fourth
and NW Marine Drive.
VICTORIA (Staff) - Housing
minister Lome Nicolson waffled
Thursday on what the provincial
government plans to do with the
University Endowment Lands
saying only that they are in no
hurry to develop the area.
In an interview with The
Ubyssey, Nicolson repeated
comments made last year that a
philosophical approach to a
development plan for the UEL
would be drawn up around housing
and parkland priorities.
Only after the approach is
decided upon will concrete
proposals and consultation with
local government's be undertaken,
he said.
Nicolson indicated his department is concerned with developing
other areas of the Lower Mainland
ahead of the UEL, specifically
mentioning parts of Burnaby and
Port Coquitlam.
"You might expect some type of
announcement from Burnaby or
Port Coquitlam before you hear
anything on the Endowment
Nicolson was speaking hours
before the opening of the
legislature for the spring session.
In the speech from the throne the
Barrett government promised
legislation to defeat B.C.'s housing
The government indicated it will
continue the land-banking
programs, but would also concentrate on the immediate
development of Crown land
throughout B.C. The UEL is Crown
land, but was not specifically
mentioned in the speech.
Nicolson said the government is
in no hurry to precede in
developing the 1,700-acre lands and
will not do so until a sensible plan is
He said he hoped priority on the
lands would be housing of "not too
high" density with co-ordinated
parkland facilities.
In keeping with past statements,
he refused to indicate when any
announcement could be expected
and would not say what steps were
being taken now to arrive at the
correct   philosophical   approach.
Nicolson told reporters at
Vancouver city hall several weeks
ago nothing is down on paper as far
as housing for the UEL is concerned. Refusing to set any dates
for action, he said something could
be done by the end of this year.
He said hundreds of acres might
be devoted to park uses, but would
not say whether he supports
Vancouver Aid. Jack Volrich's call
for 1,000 acres of the UEL to be
devoted to open space.
A report to the Greater Vancouver Regional District earlier
this month on the UEL said the
GVRD should not be rushed into a
policy on UEL development until
the provincial government undertakes an in-depth study of the
area. The report was prepared by
the GVRD planning department.
"The regional district board has
not taken a position on use of the
endowment lands, and it does not
seem criticial to do so until the
province undertakes an in-depth
study of the area," said the report.
"It is evident, however, that
simple solutions such as using all
developable land for housing or for
parks will not be acceptable to
large variety of groups who have
expressed an interest in the endowment lands.
"It seems certain that should the
province begin to plan seriously for
the UEL, the GVRD and the city of
Vancouver will have to be involved. Moreover, no plan will be
an open-and-shut case."
Mayor Art Phillips told council
earlier this month he favors large-
scale park use on the lands.
Last November 95 per cent of the
4,000 students who voted in an
Alma   Mater   Society   sponsored
UEL referendum opted for keeping
the lands in their natural state or
for limited park and recreational
Among the other proposals for
UEL use on the AMS ballot were:
mixed housing, commercial and
industrial uses, large-scale
housing development, and various
park and recreational purposes.

Kits high-rises slapped
Students, housewifes, freaks,
homeowners and tenants agreed.
Businessmen, real estate agents
and senior citizens disagreed.
Vancouver city council agreed.
The construction of high-rises in
Kitsilano must end.
And after more than 30 speakers
had presented facts and opinions
on the matter Thursday night at
Kitsilano secondary school, city
council amended zoning
regulations to temporarily halt
construction of high-rises.
Council technically down-zoned
certain areas in the district to RM-
3A from RM-3.
The RM-3 zone permits buildings
up to 120 feet high. The RM-3A
permits buildings to be constructed
up to 35 feet.
Only the city's technical planning board can give a contractor
permission to go beyond this limit.
Council called the public hearing
to stop high-rise construction in
Kitsilano after a number of groups
began a movement against high-
rises in the district.
A planned senior citizen's high-
rise at Seventh and Maple has been
killed for at least one year by the
zoning change.
Representatives from all these
groups which included the Kitsilano Area Resources Association,
West Broadway Citizens Committee and the Local Area Planning Council and the Bayview
Home School Association.
A UBC architecture lecturer
presented the brief for the West
Broadway group — a lengthy
presentation with slides.
Donald Gutstein, a volunteer
with the group, told the meeting of
residents thrown out of their homes
by developers.
"The problem we share in Kit
silano is to be destroyed by an
onslaught of developers," said
He said the developers cannot
understand the desire of
homeowners and residents to stay
in the area.
"One elderly woman told us this
story .Before she was thrown out,
her landlord told her she was
"She had no right to live by the
beach (Kitsilano along Cornwall)
when other people with more
money wanted to live there."
Gutstein said his group wants
local residents to work with the
city's planning department in
developing a plan for Kitsilano

parking, recreation and corn-

Gov't bureaucrat wants bigger bucks
Increased life expectancy for
Canadians may be one benefit of a
new concept of the health field
outlined by a federal department of;
health and welfare spokesman.
LaFramboise, assistant deputy
minister of the long range planning
branch of the department of
national health and welfare, spoke
to about 40 people in the Instructional Resources Centre.
He said the purpose of his branch
is to originate, develop, and put
into practise ideas for direct and
major benefit to Canadian health.
A clearer idea of the current
state of Canadian health is needed
to improve health status and may
be provided by detailed studies of
mortality, hospitalization and self-
treated illness, LaFramboise said.
"We hope to get the government
of Canada to finance a continuing
health survey," he said. "We hope
to have a better picture of what is
happening in health treatments in
Using the studies which have so
far been made, the long range
planning branch has developed a
new concept of the health field.
LaFramboise outlined the concept
which divides the health field into
four elements.
The first element, he said, is
Students break up meet
TORONTO (CUP) — Students
and representatives of the Italian
community disrupted a governing
council meeting at the University
of Toronto last week after the
council refused to hear their
charges against medical professor
Ian Hector.
Hector has been under fire for at
least a year over his theory that
injured Italian workers are
"culturally predisposed" to play
the fake sick role. The governing
council has consistently refused to
hear the charges against Hector,
or instigate investigation into the
After governing council chairperson Malim Harding ruled them
out of order, protesters took over
the microphone and presented
their case to council anyway,
presenting a petition with 1,000
signatures demanding an inquiry.
John Grohovaz, editor of an
Italian language paper in Toronto,
made an impassioned speech
denouncing Hector's 'racist'
theories and demanding an investigation.
"We already have too many Ian
Hectors in the world and if we can
do away with just one of them we
have done a great service to
society and mankind," Grohavaz
A campaign was started by
Students for a Democratic Society
last fall to have Hector removed.
SDS  stated   "such   theories   (as
Hectors) have neither a place in
the medical school nor in the
university community."
"The controversy surrounding

documented report he wrote on an
injured Italian workman, while
consulting psychiatrist for the
Workman's Compensation Board.
He was relieved of that position
last fall after protests from the
committee for just compensation.
human biology. "This includes all
things affecting our health by
consequence of the fact we are
human beings," LaFramboise
He said work in the fields of
immunology, neurology and
genetics are important. "When we
understand more about what
protects us and what causes
diseases, we'll unlock a lot of
health answers."
A second element of the concept
is the total environment
surrounding us, things about which
the individuals can do little or
nothing, LaFramboise said.
Another element, he said, involves things which people can do
something about — the self-
imposed risks we take as part of
our lifestyles. LaFramboise
mentioned alcohol, cigarettes, lack
of exercise and neglecting the use
of seatbelts as examples of these
"If our population could keep
control of self-imposed risks it
would improve our health status
more than any other thing," he
said. "Canadians are in terrible
shape. They are flabby, and 50 per
cent of them weight more than they
The final aspect of the concept
involves health care organization.
LaFramboise pointed out the cost,
accessibility and quality of health
care must be balanced to provide
effective health care.
LaFramboise said he feels this
comprehensive concept provides a
new kind of framework for looking
at health problems.
The concept also makes an efficient analysis and pinpointing of
causes of health problems possible,
LaFramboise said.

mercial needs would be joint
"But first we have to stop the
high-rises from going up," he said.
"It could take us a year to realize
any plan and in that time another
high-rise could go up."
Gutstein also attacked high-rises
because he said developers do not
pay enough city taxes to merit the
public services provided high-
"The single-family dwelling
owner pays for high-rises through
city taxes. High-rises don't pay
enough taxes for city upkeep."
He said his group has been
successful in detecting the secret
assembly of land — block busting
necessary for any major
development, high-rise, low rise or
However, it was unsuccessful in
stopping the bulldozing on city
blocks at Seventh and Vine and on
the north side of the 2400 Block
West Third.
He admitted the group has not
been able to stop the deterioration
of houses absentee-landlords
He said developers let houses
deteriorate to convince block
homeowners the block is
deteriorating, thus convincing
them to sell their land.
He said the group has had its
greatest success stopping the
construction of parking lots on
vacant areas.
The Kitsilano Area Resources
Association representative told the
meeting a vote against rezoning
could mean "deadly comformity"
in the district.
"A vote for RM-3 not only
assures row on row of apartment
blocks, not only a change in
housing styles, but a change in
Kitsilano, in the people.
"This type of development is a
mistake. We should plan together,
perhaps for low-rises, perhaps
high-rises, but certainly single-
family houses should be included.
Harold Kidd, former Kitsilano
Ratepayers Association president,
said the cost of renting a suite must
be kept low and this can only be
done by providing more apartments.
"I am very much aware of the
fact that by trying to limit accommodation rents can be kept
high," said Kidd, who presented
the merchants' view.'.
He said district businessmen
want suite holders' business.
"We should leave the zoning as it
is at the present."
Referring to the many apartment-dwellers in the audience,
Kidd said: "The average length of
their stay is four years. Then are
these the people who should tell us
how to run our community," said
Kidd's business, Kidd Bros.
Produce Ltd. recently moved to
Burnaby from its location on West
No Harold Kidd is listed in the
city directory or the telephone
book as living in the Kitsilano area.
Senior citizens in the audience
spoke against down-zoning
because it would stop the construction of a 13-storey high-rise at
Seventh and Maple being
developed by John Gordon, who
recently tried to erect a high-rise
on Cornwall.
Imperial Ventures is planning an
11-storey condominium on its land
in the 2400 Block West Third.
The ban on high-rise development will be in effect for one year.
The intent of council's vote was to
give local residents a chance to
work with the city planning
department in proposing a
development scheme for Kitsilano.

Jan. 23 he and Parnall agree "the
cost of holding elections should be
a senate expense and I will consult

Final AMS elecfion count delayed

The Alma Mater Society elections have been finished for two

Moore, commerce 2, external
affairs officer; and Lynn Orstad,
arts 2, co-ordinator.
About 3,100 students — 15 per
cent of the eligible voters — voted
in the election.
Last year's elections were held
in February, but to give education
students who are out on practicums then a chance to vote,
student court ruled they be held
Jan. 30.
And the turnout at the education
building advance polls showed a
substantial increase this year —
122 compared to 32 last year.
AMS education representative
Roger Gosselin estimated the
turnout would have been higher if
the advance poll was not held on
Tuesday since many education
students are out in high schools
that day.
"I'll admit I goofed," Gosselin
He said when he discovered his
mistake he had large signs posted
in the Education building telling
students to vote in other buildings
since there would be no polls in
there Wednesday.
The Students' Coalition first
gained a majority on council in late
1971 after a left-wing executive was
voted out of office.
It has never taken all positions
before, although it has had a
majority of members on the
executive since the time it first
came in, except for one three-
month period in 1973.
The group basically aims at
keeping the AMS out of off-campus
politics and improving such services as housing, special events
and job opportunities.
However Blankstein said the new
executive will also pay close at
tention to decentralization of the
AMS because students had shown
by a large vote given the SD-AMS
that they consider it important.
including nominations, will be
conducted by mail. She said the
reason for this procedure is there is
little contact among the 2,623
graduate students.
"Some grad students only come
on campus once or twice a week,"
she said. "A mail ballot is the only
way we can be sure of contacting
all of them."
Although this is the procedure
the registrar would probably use if
he conducted the elections, Wagg
said, it is a matter of principle that
the GSA run their own election.
She also said there is a difference
of opinion as to the nominating
"We want to contact every
student personally by mail but the
registrar just wants to place an ad
in The Ubyssey," she said.

Newfies to unionize
ST. JOHN'S (CUP) — The students' union council at Memorial
University is trying to organize course and departmental unions at the
Newfoundland university. The union academics department will be
calling meetings of majors of all courses as soon as possible.
Students now have little say in what goes on in their departments.
Participation in departmental decisions is not encouraged by the
Union president Des Sullivan said students will be investing $3,500 on
course evaluation this semester. Students will evaluate course content
and teaching competency of their professors.
Union spokesman say they hope the evaluation will be useful to the
proposed course unions in the struggle to bring reality to the courses
offered by the academic departments.
Senator pooh poohs
impeachment move
Student senator-at-large Arthur Hilliker says he's unhappy with an
Alma Mater Society motion seeking the right to impeach student
Hilliker prompted talk of impeaching senators after he voted last year
against a motion in senate calling for the arts undergraduate society,
and not the registrar, to conduct elections of students to serve on arts
faculty committees.
Student leaders have accused Hilliker of not acting in students' best
interest by voting against the motion which was defeated 28-27.
At first Hilliker refused comment Thursday on the impeachment
question but then went on to say student senators should be allowed to
complete their terms.
He also said he doesn't think the motion is valid and it involves
practical difficulties.
"It could be abused," he said. "Especially in a small faculty like
On the other hand it would be impossible to get sufficient signatures to
impeach a senator in a larger jurisdiction, Hilliker said.
Hilliker said the motion was unclear regarding impeachment
procedures if an impeached senator runs for office again and wins.
"What if someone is impeached and then re-elected — can he be re-
"I really think the motion is unnecessary," Hilliker said. "I'm against
A motion passed by AMS council earlier this month, which must be
approved by senate to be effective, said a senator could be impeached
and new elections held if 10 per cent of a senator's constituency signed a
petition calling for the person's recall.
In Hilliker's case, about 2,000 signatures or 10 per cent of UBC's 20,000
daytime students would be needed for impeachment because he is a
senator-at-large. Other senators representing faculties with a smaller
constituency could be impeached with far less than 2,000 signatures
under the AMS motion. Page 4

Ten years ago today the Beatles finally hit number one
on the big U.S. charts with I Wanna Hold Your Hand.
The Beatles?
Jeez, nostalgia sure ain't what it used to be.
Nonetheless the date has long been awaited by those of
us who weren't old enough to drive nails let alone a
chopped and channeled '49 Merc in the American Graffitti
milieu of 1962.
Now it's our turn.
Remember the Rolling Stones, The Kings, The
Animals, The Byrds, the Trogs, The DC-5, Herman's
Hermits, Dr. Strangelove, Beatle haircuts, Tom Jones
screaming, Lucien Rivard, Hal Banks and Gerda Munsinger?
If that ain't enough, look at some of the stuff
happening at UBC 10 years ago.
John MacDonald was president, enrolment was 14,000,
fees went to $370 from $320, and the budget was $11
The Student Union Building poll set for Nov. 22,
1963 was postponed because of President Kennedy's assassination though eventually a $5 fee hike to pay for the $3.8
million monster was approved.
But SUB wasn't built until 1967 (it cost almost $5
million then) and only after a whole new financing formula
was worked out.
UBC history prof John Norris ran for the New
Democratic Party in the fall provincial elections. Norris was
touted as a possible education minister but he lost and it
was victorious commerce prof Ralph Loffmark who entered
the Socred cabinet as trade and industry minister.
In September of the 1963-64 term the engineers pulled
their (in)famous smash the statue stunt. They descended on
sculptures in the Buchanan quadrangles and smashed them
to bits before horrified students and faculty. Only later was
it revealed the statues had been erected by the engineers in
the first place.

journeyed to the top of Burnaby mountain to see if he
could find the much-touted Simon Fraser Academy. Turned

the efforts of Father David Bauer's legendary amateur
national   hockey team. The team,  composed of  players
drawn from various Canadian universities, trained at UBC's
rink facilities during the fall term.
Bauer's boys put up a valiant effort against greatly
superior competition but managed only fourth place in the
Olympics at Innsbruck. Included in the roster of the 1964
team were current NHL players Terry Clancy and Ken
Government action killed Bauer's team before it ever
got another stab at the Olympics. But some think with a
little more training and a little more support'they might
have pulled it off.
The Ubyssey got in trouble that year when editor Mike
Hunter ran an editorial blasting the rising Quebec-power
movement. Hunter and the paper were censured by AMS
council for referring to French-Canadians as "frogs".
In a more astute political comment The Ubyssey ran
their own suggestion for Canada's flag during the interminable flag debate. It depicted a beaver devouring a frog.
As for Beatlemania, The Ubyssey sniffed that it was all
a "fad" and declared 'They were the biggest disappointment since mother told us there was no Santa

This is an open letter to all the
students and staff of the University
of British Columbia.
A citizen's committee has been
very active in the last six months
co-ordinating the fight for the
preservation of the University
Endowment Lands. As a member
of this committee and as a fellow
student of UBC I would like to
invite your participation in the
struggle to secure the Endowment
Lands as a regional park. I needn't
go into all the details at this time
concerning the excellent potential
this forest possesses, for I'm sure
you've all had relaxing walks
through it and are fully aware of its
One of the more positive things
you can do to effect the right
decision in Victoria, would be to
drop a line to Premier David
Barrett. Your support for the
regional park concept could also be
expressed to resources minister
Bob Williams, recreation
minister Jack Radford and housing
minister Lome Nicolson. These
can all be addressed care of
parliament buildings, Victoria.
This type of personalized letter
campaign can be very effective,
for we enjoy a receptive type of
government that will respond to
citizen initiative.
I would also like to take this
moment to announce that a public
meeting is scheduled for March 6
at 8 p.m. in John Oliver high school
auditorium. There will be some
guest speakers plus a special
audio-visual documentary on the
UEL. We will be inviting Williams,
Nicholson, and various members
of the cabinet, Vancouver City
Council, representatives from the
GVRD, and most importantly you!
In closing may I stress the need
for active participation from all
the citizens of the Lower Mainland.
This is a vital issue for the securing
of a healthy living environment for
the years to come. If you'd like to
help, feel free to drop me a line . . .

I read with great interest your
Friday article telling me how to
make phone calls at another's
expense. I welcome the chance to
thumb my nose at Ma Bell, even
though the gesture is only symbolic
and it is not Bell but the holder of
the credit number I use that will
have to pay the bill (sic). I don't
feel the least bit sorry for the
corporation I rip off since they
probably make too much profit as
it is and can always put up their
prices to cover such theft losses.
The people who pay for the company's products are Americans
(probably the same ones who voted
for Nixon), so they certainly won't
get any sympathy from me.
The theft game is a lot of fun and
since it involves stealing from
people you don't see, a little at a
time, it really doesn't hurt anyone.
It's too bad another version of the
same game puts up the bookstore
prices so much, but I can always
rip off enough books to cover the
difference. # •
It's a little inconvenient for
people to try on jackets at the Bay

Could you perhaps publish an

pair of pocket chain-cutters?
To change the subject somewhat,
I'd also like to thank you for
helping people get away with
speeding in the campus area. It
must be a constant nervous strain
never to know where a ghost car or
radar trap may be. Since I ride a
bicycle myself I can't speak from
personal experience on the matter,
but when I pass the gates and run

Gordon Sinclair's recorded
panderings to the Americans (The
Ubyssey, Jan. 25) reminded me of
an old story told about Canada's
national symbol, the beaver.
Apparently, the beaver was at
one time hunted for its testicles,
which were used in the distillation
of fine perfumes. In time, the <
beavers learned to save themselves from certain death by
cutting off that part of themselves
which was so highly prized.
Sinclair's statements are thus
more expressive of our national
identity than has otherwise been
thought. One wonders, however, if
he is aware of the survival rate of
the castrati.

graduate studies HOW TO MAKE A POEM
Sit down. Make the necessary-
word, the word of absence,
the wheel word. Sit down
and fill the room with fluttering.
Step aside. Feel it step
beside you, shadowing you
with your own bad graces.
See it blunder into the mirror
when you turn your head.
There is more to vision
than capacity for sight:
there is the tickle of blood
circulating the flimsy
contemplation of bones.
From teeth grown
ravenous and uncontrolled
as insects something escapes.
Prepare to excavate,
pursue the leak,
taste purity
in eyes that are closing
but not quite asleep.

Page Friday 3 One evening
After dinner the party retired to the west wing for tea.
The talk was small, the guests being only casual
acquaintances, feeling quite comfortable with one another
but disinclined to discussions of any serious nature. In one
corner of the room was a chess table and chairs and it was
decided that for entertainment I should play Murray, a
noted chessman from the provinces. It was agreed by all
that he would make a good opponent to me, the champion
of the city and contender for the national title. I had little
interest in the match at first but was soon persuaded by
the lovely Sonya who had cast her interests my way from
the very start of the evening.
The furniture was cleared and the table moved to the
center of the room. Two chairs were placed any myself
and my opponent took our seats as the group made
themselves comfortable for the competition.
I picked up a black pawn and a white pawn, put them
behind my back, interchanged them several times, and
then asked Murray to choose the hand he preferred. He
did this and I opened my left hand to reveal the white
pawn. He opened with a standard move and I countered
with my knight in a similiar fashion.
Carefully, I planned my strategy. I would destroy his
flank with my bishops and finish him with a few deft
maneuverings of my queen. The plan was dependent on
Murray making certain moves which I had anticipated
and when finally I saw his hand hesitate over his bishop
and move it to king knight four, I was inwardly ecstatic.
He had played right into my hands. It was only a matter of
time before I moved into position and on the thirty-sixth
move was able to hold him in checkmate, all this to the
delight of the lovely Sonya who stood at my shoulder
resting her beautifully sculptured hand on the black lapel
of my tuxedo.
Murray conceded me the victory with a look of consternation on his handsome provincial face and as he
stood up he offered to drink to my continued success if he
should only remove to the lounge. I thanked him very
much and agreed and we went through a marble pillared
hall to the bar, followed by the good company who had
obviously been very pleased with the outcome of the
We were assembled there with our glasses raised in a
bidding to good health and prosperity when someone
suggested there be another match between myself and a
Mr. Jerez, a diplomat newly arrived in our country. Mr.
Jerez, on loan from the regime of the honourable A	
 , was reputed to be a chess master of some
reknown. It didn't trouble ml that I had never heard of
Mr. Jerez, it seemed perfectly natural that he should be
well known in some circles. Regrettably, I don't speak the
language and have never been able to generate much
interest in the smaller governments of the Americas.
Joseph with the help of the headwaiter brought the
table in and the chairs were once again set to either side.
Mr. Jerez and I sat down and chose colours and I was
white this time and opened with pawn to king bishop three.
I was surveying the field when Mr. Jerez did a very
curious thing. He picked up his knight and moved it
straight ahead to king bishop four.
"Your move," he said in an impeccable tone.
I could do little else but look into his dark eyes and
attempt to understand the meaning of this strange and
completely illegal move.
"You are joking of course, Mr. Jerez," I said with an
impatient smile. I took the liberty of picking up his piece
and carefully placing it back in its proper place. A rather
vague smile impressed itself on the lips of Mr. Jerez and
he immediately picked up the knight and put it once again
as it had been.
"I forgive you the indiscretion," he said. "I believe
now, it is your move."
With this I could do nothing else but assume the man to
be an imposter and I proposed to humor him with a
bishop to king bishop four, a move so blatantly at odds
with all recognized chess procedures that I could not help
but give a hearty laugh at its completion. Meanwhile, the
assembly had grown very still and silent. All were viewing
the proceedings with an interest which seemed to permeate the atmosphere above our heads.
After I moved the bishop, to my absolute amazement
Mr. Jerez picked up his queen and with a barely perceptible flick of his little finger, maneuvered his pawn out
of the way and placed the regal figure in direct opposition
to my king.
"Check," said Mr. Jerez.
Now I felt completely helpless. Should I be laughing at
this incredible fool sitting across the table from me? He
had reduced our contest to some private joke and seemed
to have gained great satisfaction from his indulgence. The
lovely Sonya standing at my shoulder leaned her face
down to my ear at the same time pressing her luxurious
bosom into my back and asked if I didn't think Mr. Jerez
rather silly. I agreed and said so openly and then asked
Mr. Jerez for a complete explanation. I was sure that by
this time he would be willing to disclose what seemed to be
his special knowledge of the game.
"I beg your pardon Mr. Butterfield," he said. "I can
see that we should have reached some agreement on the
manner in which the game was to be played. You see, in
my method of play, it is quite proper to make the moves as
one pleases. The object is not to have at your opponent
with a barrage of forays, skirmishes, frontal and rear
assaults, but to move the pieces and establish contact
on a . . . how is the expression? ... on a high plane. You
see Mr. Butterfield, the possibilities of abstraction are
"I agree Mr. Jerez," I said looking at him. "The
possibilities of abstraction in your method of play are
quite limitless. They are quite ludicrous. There must be
rules, standard procedures, some kind of framework if the
contest is to have any meaning at all. You cannot dispute
"I do not dispute it Mr. Butterfield," he returned. "And
I assure you, there is a framework involved; but a
framework of an entirely different nature.
"You see, the game can have the utmost of meanings
even when it appears that the pieces are moving at random. A free imagination is involved."
"I have never heard of anything like it and to me it
seems a little crazy, Mr. Jerez. It certainly isn't chess."
"I honour your opinion Mr. Butterfield," said the
impeccable foreigner, "and perhaps you are right.
Nevertheless, in any contest you must consider all
possibilities no matter how strange or unacceptable they
might seem. You must take into your considerations the
illogical and irrational because they have a rationaje of
their own. It is necessary to learn to deal with this as well.
Do you not think this to be true?"
There was a rather awkward pause of a few seconds at
this point as the assembly and myself pondered these
intimations from Mr. Jerez. The evening had taken an
abrupt turn and I'm sure we were all feeling somewhat
uncomfortable in the presence of this exceedingly odd
man. He sat opposite me at the table,-looking at me with
his dark eyes and I could not bring myself to say anything
in return.

Students give in
Volkoff's office size okay
The dispute over the size of
science dean George Volkoff's new
office was resolved this week when
students withdrew their charges
that Volkoff was monopolizing lab
Zoology students told The
Ubyssey last week they felt
Volkoff's office in the new wing
planned for the biological sciences
building would be too large. They
said lab space might suffer as a
B.C. bikers protest
Dissatisfied motorcyclists will protest their increased insurance rates
on Feb. 23 despite efforts of the B.C. Motorcycle Industries Association
to postpone the demonstration.
About 15 per cent of UBC's 160 registered motorcycle owners said they
will participate in the demonstration proposed last week by Ben van
Drimmelen, forestry 4. Van Drimmelen said that if Fraser Valley and
Vancouver Island motorcyclists show similar interest, as many as 2,000
bikers may ride in the protest.
Bikers plan to gather in front of the parliament buildings at noon and
ride for three or four hours to publicize their anger with the increases.
For riders between 16 and 25 years of age the rates will be raised as
much as $200.
However, MIA spokesman William Booth wants to delay any announcement of the protest, van Drimmelen said.
Van Drimmelen said Booth claims the demonstration will damage the
reception of a petition concerning the increases which he presented to
highways minister Robert Strachan last week.
The association also wants to organize any protest on its own. Though
the demonstration is planned for Saturday, Booth wants protesters to
ride while parliament is in session, van Drimmelen said.
But van Drimmelen said he feels the association is too political, and
will take too long to act. "I'm against the insurance, not the government," he said.
"I just want to get the thing going and be there. I don't want to
organize it farther. I figure Feb. 23 is about as late as anyone can wait
Van Drimmelen said his main concern now is the conduct of bikers at
the demonstration. He said even a few rowdy protesters would mar the
effectiveness of the protest.
"I haven't got the experience or the know-how to control that many
people," he said. "I just hope everyone is on best behavior. If things got
rowdy I'd just ride away."
And if the petition and the demonstration both fail to lower motorcycle
insurance rates, van Drimmelen said he'll store his bike for the three
months until he turns 25.
BCASU more political
The B.C. Association of Student
Unions is becoming more committed to politics Alma Mater
Society president Brian Loomes
said Thursday.
However Loomes said the
association still sees direct student
services as its primary concern.
Loomes was a UBC delegate to
an association conference held last
weekend in Kelowna. He said the
conference was concerned with
defining the content and purpose of
the association rather than its
AMS external affairs officer
Bonnie Long also attended the
The daily scheduled meetings
were discussions of specific'
student issues and concerns including a proposal to establish a
post-secondary student bus and
ferry fare; a report investigating
student services at colleges and
universities; and a proposal for a
student dental plan, Loomes said.
But he said discussion also dealt
with whether or not the association
should become involved with
political concerns as well as
student services.
Nearly half of the 30 conference
delegates wanted to avoid political
concerns Loomes said.
Yet when the issue was brought
to a vote, delegates decided the
association has the right to present
politics as a concern of the
students, he said.
"You can't isolate student
problems from the problems of
education and the province as a
whole," Loomes said.
Loomes said that after the
scheduled meetings ended there
was discussion of how education in
general might be improved.
"People have become more
serious about the work they have to
do," Loomes said. "The
association has good potential for
helping students and also for
improving education."
However, Orian Varley, student
representative on the users committee of the new wing, said
Thursday: "The students have
made their apologies. They were
unaware of the details of the new
building. Now they know money
and space is so tight the dean's
office can't be cut tack much more
than it already has been."
Volkoff said his office in hut 0-11
has 2,300 square feet of floor space,
while the new one will be 1,600
square feet.
"That's only the latest
estimate," he said. "It may be cut
down even more as the plans have
not yet been finalized.
"The office will also be left
unfinished said Volkoff. "The most
recent budget figure for the
building of $2.8 million does not
allow for completion of the interior
Varley, honors zoology 4, said
students realize Volkoff's office "is
not excessive when the size of his
staff is taken into account."
She said she agreed with
Volkoff's statement that his new
office would still be cramped
compared to those of other faculty
"Some good has come out of the
confusion however," said Varley.
"Our profs didn't know we felt left
out and uninformed and have made
an effort to let us know about the
new wing. A complete report on the
plans to date is going to be released
in six weeks."
Varley said "the science undergraduate society also became
aware of the situation and will
provide money for student lounge
and locker facilities which space
and budget restrictions in the new
building will not permit.
"Some departments are not as
well off in this regard as others,"
she said.
Volkoff said the new office's
central location will serve students
better than the current one.
Federal Democratic Socialist
slate, headed by Doug Blockstein,
swept the polls today in Pango
Pango's first free election since the
military junta of General Luis
Illuminato took over the country.
Blockstein's paramilitary FDS
polled 97 per cent of the votes to
sweep all seven seats in the
national reichstag.
The results were considered a
crushing blow to the ruling Post-
Sinusoidal Anesthaesia party, led
by Fritz Empty. They received
only 1.7 per cent of the vote. Puce
Blorgs for the Decentralization of
Intelligence, a progressive slate,
polled only .9 per cent of the vote.
Overseas jobs available
Students frustrated by limited
job openings in North America
should consider obtaining temporary student jobs in Europe says

The Alma Mater Society's special events are going to continue next
year and one of the biggest proposals in the works is a rock festival in
Thunderbird Stadium, AMS president-elect Gord Blankstein said
Blankstein said special events will try to get name speakers to come
and lecture at UBC along with the regular fare of music groups.
"We are thinking of getting speakers such as Xaviera Hollander,
(Prime Minister P. E.) Trudeau, and people who will draw large
crowds," he said.
Blankstein did not name any groups, but said special events were
trying to get some more bands to play here.
The AMS broke even on the last concert — Jerry Lee Lewis — but the
promoters who negotiate for the AMS lost $1,000.
Blankstein said they had to pay the Kego Club for release of Lewis
because he was under contract with them when he was scheduled to
play at UBC.
The AMS has sold 1,126 tickets out of 4,500 available for the coming
Van Morrison concert Feb. 19. Students can pick up tickets at the AMS
office in SUB.
Standard wages are paid for jobs
available in Switzerland, France,
Austria and alpine Germany in ski
resorts during winter and in
lakeside and city resorts during
spring and summer. Free room
and board is provided with each
hotel, resort and restaurant job.
Language students will have the
opportunity to prove their
linguistic prowess, but most jobs
do not require knowledge of a
foreign language the organization
says in a press release.
The non-profit student run
organization arranges jobs
through a mail application system.
Applications should be submitted
early to allow time for processing
the job, working papers, room and
board arrangements and other
travel documents.
To obtain an application form
and job listings and descriptions,
send your name, address, name of

Wrestlers pile up
winning record
While not one of the biggest attractions at the gate, the Thunderbird
wrestling team has been piling up an impressive record in the won-lost
Last week the team made a successful sortie into Washington and
Oregon to take on some of the top American college teams.
The Birds took three dual meets; from Willamette College, 36-4;
Columbia College, 33-13; and Linfield College, 30-12.
The Birds now have a dual meet record of seven wins, three losses and
a tie.
Today the Birds will take on Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma
and tomorrow they will travel to Centralia to take on Centralia College.
Although the Birds perennial winner, Teras Hryb, is still in New
Zealand for the Commonwealth Games there are quite a few guys left to
take up the slack.
George Richey (190 pounds), Mike Richey (158 pounds), heavyweight
Kyle Raymond, Craig Delahunt (167 pounds), and Phillippe Markon
(177 pounds), have all been having outstanding years and will lead the
•Birds in an attempt to win the last two dual meets of the season.

UBC collects 2 medals
Members of UBC's athletic
teams have collected high
placings, including two medals, at
the Tenth Commonwealth Games
being held in Christchurch, New
A jump of 20' 11-1/4" gave
Brenda Eisler a silver medal in the
women's long jump. She has been
one of Canada's top women track
and field athletes for the past four
years and has represented Canada
numerous, times in international
Teras Hryb, the star of the UBC
Thunderbird wrestling team,
overcame a torn rib cartilage and
bruised knee to pick up a third
place bronze in middleweight
wrestling. Hryb was counting on a
gold but the injuries took care of
that. It is to his credit that he
finished the competition at all.
This was the strongest showing
in 30 years for Canada's wrestling
team, as they collected eight
medals, including five gold.
Injuries, this time in the form of
sprained ankles^ contributed to the
fourth and fifth place showings of
John Beers and John Hawkins in
the high jump.
Beers' was rated first in the
Commonwealth and Hawkins
second. The two could only manage
Intramural basketball
jumps of 6' 10-3/4", substantially
less than the seven foot and above
jumps they have been pulling off
with regularity in the past year.
Thunderbird swimmer, Bill
Mahoney, placed fourth in the 200
metre breaststroke and qualified
for the final in the 100 metre.
Patti Loverock placed eighth in
the women's 200 metre sprint.
Thelma Wright, the Canada West
champion cross-country runner
has qualified for trie women's 1,500
metre final and is given a good
chance to pick up a medal.
These results, plus other athletes
who were eliminated in semi and
quarter final action, by UBC gave
the best performance of any
Canadian university at the games.

Registrar unconcerned
No nominations, no election
If no nominations come in, there
will be no election.
This is UBC registrar Jack
Parnall's analysis of what would
happen if the arts undergraduate
society's boycott of elections for
arts faculty student representatives succeeds.
The AUS is urging students to
boycott the mail-ballot elections
because they say the procedure
completely ignores their own
more democratic proposal.
At arts dean Doug Kenny's insistence Parnall will conduct the
election by mail, while the AUS
had asked for autonomy over the
ballot which they wanted conducted openly. The UBC senate
also  granted  a  lower  level  of
student  representation  than  the
AUS had asked.
Parnall told The Ubyssey
Thursday that so far no
nominations for the 30 representative positions have been
received, although they have been
open for a week.
But if only one person were
nominated for a constituency he
would be elected by acclamation,
Parnall said.
Parnall said in the event no
nominations for student representatives are submitted by the
end of next week, when the two-
week nomination period expires,
that he would report to senate that
no election would be held.
"It would simplify my job,"
Parnall said. "I would report to
Law students protest
high failure rate
MONTREAL (CUP) — A meeting Jan. 27 between the Quebec Bar
Association and a student negotiating committee failed to provide a
solution to the strike called by the bar students earlier last month.
Students are protesting the high failure rate in bar exams and the increased articling period.
The bar association's executive committee rejected proposals that
the passing grade on two of the six exams be lowered to 50 per cent from
60 per cent and that articling be allowed to begin after three exams are
passed. It said it would be "willing to discuss" a third proposal, calling
for a six month articling period instead of the present 12.
Bar spokesman Michael Robert said agreeing to the first demand
would require "an unacceptable lowering of the standards of the Bar
Association," not in keeping with the bar's responsibility to the public.
As for the second demand, "articling students are almost lawyers,
and we must be sure they have passed all their exams and are qualified
before they are given a lawyer's powers."
Robert said the executive committee would look into the high exam
failure rates, but would not say what this might produce.
About 42 per cent of the bar students have failed at least one of three
exams already written. Students expect this rate will rise to more than
50 per cent by the time all six are written.
The Bar Association says it plans to go ahead with the fourth exam,
scheduled for next Tuesday, despite student vows to boycott it.
"Many students have said they want to write the exam," said Robert.
"We have received telephone calls, letters, and written demands to
. respect the contract we have with the students, and it is our duty to do
so." He refused to reveal how many people were pressing for the exam.
The student negotiating committee, however, said the boycott will be
respected. A committee member said "in Montreal we're sure of all but
perhaps five or ten people."
There are about 350 students in Montreal, 130 in Quebec City and 32 in
"We think that the bar is taking this extremely rigid position in the
hope that we will become frightened and write the exam," said one
student. "We hope that when they realize we won't back down, they will
be more reasonable."
The students have all graduated from law school. They are now
supposed to attend 15 hours of classes a month and take one
examination a month for six months. After these are successfully
completed they must begin their year of articling.
Porker breaks up
strikers, picket line
MONTREAL (CUP) — A pig broke up a picket line here Jan. 25 and
the workers loved it.
They went hog-wild over the soft and cuddly, pink-skinned and
badgeless porker. He squealed and danced while the picketers laughed,
sang and stamped their feet to accordion tunes at the doors of a strikebound factory.
The picket line was at J & P Coats (Canada) Ltd., where 125
workers have been on strike at the thread manufacturer since Jan. 12.
And though the picketers had their fun, union spokesperson Michel
Lauzon said the situation is not really funny at all.
The employer cries he's hard up, said Lauzon, but "he's" really a
Scottish based multi-national corporation with profits of $150 million
around the world and $2 million in Montreal.
Lauzon said the company warned its clients there would be a strike
even before negotiations began.
It took 18 sessions ("during which the employer didn't mind keeping
us waiting for four hour periods while he deliberated") for the union to
squeeze an extra two cents an hour out of management, said Lauzon.
The company cut the strikers' unemployment insurance plan the
day before they walked off the job, he added.
The strikers were earning $2.72 an hour. They're asking for a $1
raise over a two-year period. They're members of the Centrale des
Syndicats Democratiques.
Back on the picket line the strikers knocked on the factory door to
hand the pig over to management. But the bosses didn't open the door so
the picketers continued to dance their jig with the pig.
senate and tell them there will be
no election."
But Parnall said it is too early
yet to tell how many nominations
will eventually be submitted. "You
pretty well need the whole two
weeks," he said.
Parnall said mailing the ballots
to arts students was done basically
to save time and manpower.
LONDON (ANS-CUP) — According to Times of London and
Manchester Guardian reports
there has been a recent influx of
CIA agents into the country.
The Times reports that between
30 and 40 agents had been drafted
in Britain during the current crisis
period, mainly within the trade
union movement.
The reports said the agents are
employed by the CIA and the
National Security Agency to gather
information on so-called "subversive elements" within unions.
Reasons for the sudden influx
remain unconfirmed. Miles
Copeland, a former CIA senior
agent, said in London the CIA is
convinced present strikes by
British unions are motivated by
more than want of higher wages
and feared a "breakdown of
democracy" in Britain.
Since the agents were recruited,
an operation has been undertaken
by the army and police at
Heathrow airport, reportedly in
preparation for attacks by Arab
terrorists — which is advanced as
another likely reason.
The British reports were denied
by the American embassy in
London in what the Times
described as a "general
automatic" and "understandable"
Meanwhile the Guardian
reported that the CIA is setting up
a large field office near Black-
friars bridge in London.
And they quoted one Irish
laborer on the site as saying,
"Those Americans! Who else
would build Fort Knox in the
middle of London."

Mail ballots, he said, are commonly used by the arts faculty and

their representatives.

not good enough."
