Array Board members slam firings
By MARCUS GEE
Three UBC board of governors
members Monday lashed out at the
Social Credit government firing of
two other board members midway
through their terms.
Gideon Rosenbluth, board
member and UBC economics prof,
termed the firings of architect
Bing Thom and Clive Lytle, B.C.
Federation of Labor official, an
attack on the university's independence.
The provincial government
Friday removed Thom and Lytle,
who were NDP appointees, from
the board by an order-in-council,
and replaced them with Kelowna
businessman Ian Greenwood and
Vancouver lawyer Pearley
Brissenden.
Rosenbluth said the firings are
an act of unprecedented political
interference in the operation of
UBC's highest governing body.
"This (the firings) establishes a
precedent of interference. It
certainly interferes with the independence of the university."
Rosenbluth said as far as he
knows the provincial government
has never before fired members in
mid-term. He said education
minister Pat McGeer probably
fired Thom and Lytle to make way
for newcomers who would better
reflect his view of the role of the
university.
"They must for some  reason
have moved people out to make
way for their own people."
McGeer was not available
Monday to answer the charge, but
in a statement to The Ubyssey read
by an education department
spokesman, denied Brissenden and
Greenwood were appointed for
political reasons.
"The fact that we are making

BCSF plans to fight education cutbacks
By SUSAN ALEXANDER
The B.C. Students Federation
plans to rally and lobby against
education cutbacks, federation
chairperson Lake Sagaris said
Monday.
The rally will take place in
Victoria within the next three
weeks, Sagaris said. She added the
date will not be released until a few
days before the rally, to prevent
provincial government officials
from conveniently disappearing.
She said the BCSF hopes to get at
least five student and community
representatives from each constituency to approach their MLAs.
At the same time, other students
will rally outside the parliament
buildings.
"There will be speakers, chants
and marches saying what we want
and that we're not going to let them
cut our budget," Sagaris said.
She said the BCSF wants the
provincial government to
recognize education as a priority,
and develop comprehensive
programs to improve community
colleges.   "We   need   money   to
operate good programs," she said.
At the BCSF conference in
Vancouver Saturday and Sunday,
45 delegates from 12 post-
secondary institutions in B.C.
outlined the protest plan.
Delegates promised "the BCSF
will launch a concerted attack
against any government action
which threatens accessibility to,
quality of, or decentralization of
B.C.'s education services."
And delegates decided to launch
an educational campaign in
communities   throughout   B.C.
DELEGATES MEET . . . protests, lobbying slated
—nick smirnow photo
Hell no, I won't go, says Murray
By GREGG THOMPSON
Rick Murray, student representative on the board of
governors, said Monday he would
not resign his seat on the board
should he accept a full-time, off-
campus job offer from the city of
Vancouver.
He claimed in an interview a
premature resignation from the
board before terms expire in
December would not be in the
interests of students because his
replacement would not be an
effective board member.
"I'm not sure when the position
could be filled, but if it couldn't be
filled until the first meeting of the
board of governors in mid-
October, I'm not sure there would
be much point to my resigning,"
he said.
Murray said he was concerned
that "lag-time" — the time
needed for a new member to
become acquainted with board
matters — would not be in the
best interests of students.
"It takes several months to
become an effective member of
the board. I have to decide what
actions would be the most ef
fective for students;," he said.
Murray said that while he had
not been looking for the job, there
is a "possibility" that he will
accept the job offer from the city.
"It's a fairly attractive employment opportunity and I'm
assessing the possibilities," he
said.
"That's all I can say at the
moment because there are too
many ifs involved."
Murray said he will make a
final decision on the job offer
"within a couple of weeks."

explaining the effects of community college funding cutbacks
on the businessmen, housewives
and workers who take advantage
of inexpensive courses to further
their education.
"These are the programs first
cut," Sagaris said.
She said the campaign will be
initiated by individual student
councils in the province.
A major policy statement by
delegates was that "education is a
public service and a right, not a
privilege or a business enterprise."
Delegates also called for student,
faculty and staff alliances to fight
"irresponsible and arbitrary
financing cutbacks."
"That dollars should be a final
criteria.for continuing education is
appalling," said Sagaris.
Many college councils, and the
Universities Council, have suffered
from education minister Pat
McGeer's failure to appoint
members to fill vacant positions on
the councils, said Sagaris.
Sagaris said she thinks the
government is trying, to centralize
power in Victoria with McGeer as
the one man in full control.
Delegates protested the
government's handling of Notre
Dame University in a telegram demanding that NDU become the
first independent, four-year Interior university by September,
1977.
They also demanded $3 million in
operating funds for NDU and $3.5
million for a new library for the
coming academic year.
The BCSF, which is working with
a number of student federations
across the country, including the
National Union of Students, is
looking for a common program to
fight education cutbacks while
increasing the quality and
availability of education, said
Sagaris.
"Together we represent 400,000
students across Canada."
changes has nothing to do with
politics or the fact that at present
these individuals were appointed
by a former government," the
statement read.
The spokesman said McGeer
fired Thom and Lytle because he
had found replacements, Greenwood and Brissendon, who are
better qualified to sit on the board.
When asked if the two board
members had failed in their jobs,
the spokesman said no, but added
McGeer had found two better
qualified people.
But Lytle said Monday he thinks
McGeer fired the pair because they
were progressives who tried to
change the university.
"This move can only be seen as
an attempt to return the board to
its former state — when it was
dominated by the business and
legal elite.
"Their (the government's)
action will tip the scale on the
board in favor of the conservative
business interests which
dominated it for so long."
Lytle was chairman of the
board's staff committee and was
vocal in demanding the elimination
of sexism at UBC.
He said that since he was appointed to the board it had become
more interested in stimulating
reform in the university, though he
admitted its concern has not
resulted in much concrete change
"I think progress has been made
to get the university closer to the
community and I think they (the
new appointees) will take away
from that."
Lytle linked his firing to a plot by
McGeer to get rid of labor representation on administrative bodies
in education.
"It is part of a general purge of
labor from the administrative
positions in education in the
province," he said.
But in apparent rebuttal to
Lytle's charge, McGeer said in his
statement: "It is not the policy of
the government to appoint individuals because they represent
any specific interest group or
segment of our society."
The spokesman said labor representatives are being considered for
positions on college administrative
bodies and McGeer has already
appointed one labor rep at Northwest Community College.
Board member George Hermanson, also chaplain of the
Lutheran Campus Centre, said
Monday the firings set a precedent
that could be detrimental to the
board.
"While it is the right of the
government to make these
decisions, in the past people have
operated by themselves and it
would be a shame if the government interfered more directly.

Hockey is...
the 'Birds!
UBC 4; West Germany 4
By RALPH MAURER
and MARK LEPITRE
After Monday night's hockey
game, the question is no longer,
should Canada be involved in
international hockey?
The question is, should Canada
bother being involved in
professional hockey?
A crowd of 3,000 people, some
of them literally hanging from
the rafters, saw probably the best
hockey game they'd seen since
the Canadiens-Red Army tilt on
New Year's Eve.
Walter Koberle's backhand
screen shot from 15 feet out in the
final minute lifted the West
German national team to a heartbreaking — or heartstopping,
depending upon your loyalties —
tie with the UBC Thunderbirds.

minute heroics by goals hy Jim

Bing, Clive 'valuable'
From page 1
"When I was appointed I was
never contacted and they never
interfered with what I did on the
board and in that way it sets a
precedent," he said.
"I want to make it clear I am
disappointed Bing and Clive have
been fired from the board. Both
Bing and Clive were valuable
people."
Hermanson said the firings
might damage the board's effectiveness by limiting the
diversity of interest groups represented on it.
"I think it (the new appointments) is putting people in
that reflect a certain view about
education. I have a gut feeling that
it will not be beneficial — but you
don't know till the people get on the
board what they will be like."
Board member Pat Chubb, a
Surrey school board secretary,
said Monday Thom and Lytle
should have been allowed to finish
their three-year terms on the
board.
She said board appointees need
at least a year to become
acquainted with the board's
workings. Firing them before their
terms are up only damages the
continuity of the board, Chubb
said.
"I think if you are new to the
board like this (Thom had served
one year and Lytle two) you need
at least a year to contribute to the
board."
Chubb said Thom and Lytle "had
a broader aspect on the university.
I think we did have a very diversified board. Up until a few days
ago the board was extremely
varied."
When asked if the firings would
make remaining NDP-appointed
board members wary of their
actions for fear of their positions,
Chubb said: "You've got a point
there you know."
Rosenbluth said he hopes people
at UBC will protest the firings.
He agreed with Lytle that the
appointment of Greenwood and
Brissenden would give a more
conservative, business-oriented
character to the board.
"A board consisting of lawyers
and businessmen is what we have

been trying to get away from. It is
moving toward a board made up of
businessmen and lawyers again."
Rosenbluth said board members
must be allowed to serve their full
terms if the board is to be effective.
"It (a full term) is the only way
the university can be protected
from outside intervention and the
only way good, capable people will
want to be associated with the
board."
But at least two board members
said they are not concerned about
the firings.
Student member Rick Murray
said Monday the government was
just exercising the power it has
under the Universities Act to
replace board members.
"I don't think you can call it good
or bad. The government has the
right and power to do this," he
said.
"Lytle, Chubb, Thom and
Hermanson were all clearly NDP
and I think they (the Socred
government) picked Thom and
Lytle because they were the most
vocal," said Murray.
"I would be very disturbed if this
set a precedent of government
removal of elected people from the
board of governors," he said.
Of the 15 board members, five
are elected — two students, two
faculty and one staff.
Eight board members are appointed by the provincial government and two more are UBC administration officials, for a total of
15 members.
"Let's hope they don't get into
the five members who are elected
because that would just turn the
board around completely,"
Murray said.
Under the Universities Act,
elected board members are immune from governmental firing.
UBC chancellor Donovan Miller
said Monday he is surprised but not
concerned about the firings.
"The government of the day is
the one that decides on government
appointees to the board. I like to
think that they appoint members
who have the interests of the
university at heart," said Miller.
New board members rarely
carry the special interests of their
professions into their work on the
board, Miller said. So it doesn't
matter if there is a high proportion
of businessmen and lawyers on the
board, he said.

Kenny defends profs' wages
By NANCY SOUTHAM
There are signs that society and
governments may be deciding they
don't want the best in higher
education, UBC administration
president Doug Kenny told a group
of Vancouver businessmen Friday.
Speaking at a men's Canadian
Club luncheon, Kenny cited recent
newspaper criticism of high UBC
faculty salaries and federal
government cutbacks in the area of
scientific research as subtle signs
that higher education in B.C. may
be becoming second-rate.
"An under-educated society is an
underdeveloped society and an
underdeveloped society in today's
world is an unfree society. Without
a strong commitment to first-class
education, B.C. will be condemned
to a second-class future."
It costs about $2,700 a year to
educate each student at UBC —
with only about 10 per cent coming
from the students.
The rest is supplied by the
taxpayers.
The operating budget for the
current year, Kenny said, is about
$107 million and only about $11
million comes from student fees.
"For North America, student
tuition fees that provide for only 10
per cent of the university's cost is
an incredibly low figure," Kenny
said. (The U.S. average is more
than 25 per cent.)
He said that because educational
costs paid by students has dropped
to a very low figure over the last
two decades, "we are under
pressure from certain quarters to
raise our tuition fees, which
haven't changed in many years."
The costs for UBC break down
into three categories: academic
costs, administrative costs and
operational costs, Kenny said.
"A recent Study of 23 major
universities across Canada shows
that UBC puts the highest
proportion of its operating budget
— 85.2 per cent — into academic
functions," he said.
"We also put the lowest per-

joy game, knowing only desperate
Kenny continues stall on c'ttees
By HEATHER WALKER
One month ago, administration
president Doug Kenny decided to
establish a series of committees to
"improve conditions for women
throughout the university community."
But so far, in spite of the time
which has passed, there are no
committees.
Except, that is, a board of
governors committee formed at
the same time Kenny released his
"initiatives" — and this committee
would have been formed Without
any directive from Kenny.
"Originally Clive Lytle put a
motion through the board that we
should have a committee to look at
the position of women at UBC, and
what the implications for the board
would be — what the board could
do in pushing for the improvement
of women's position," board
committee member George
Hermanson said Monday.
"Then Kenny put forward his
statement, and it was decided we
should be a support committee as
well as looking at what the board
could do."
Lytle, who was chairman of the
committee, has since been fired
from the board by education
minister Pat McGeer. Hermanson
said the committee has not yet
chosen a new chairman, but will do
so before the board's next meeting
in April.
Hermanson said the committee
had not yet heard anything about
the other committees which are to
be formed.
Last month, administration vice-
president Chuck Connaghan said
he would establish a committee in
co-operation with campus unions
"to determine whether women are
subject to discrimination in wage
rates, promotion, job opportunities
or personnel policies."
Connaghan could not be reached
for comment on the progress of his
committee Monday, but the
president of a campus union with a
very high female membership said
Monday he had heard nothing from
Connaghan about the committee.
"I haven't heardanything except
what I read in The Ubyssey," said
Ian MacKenzie, president of the
Association of University and
College Employees, which represents library and clerical workers
on campus.
"It seemed slightly ridiculous to
me," he said.
"The issue of our strike (in
December) was equal. pay for
equal work, and now that the
contract's been signed and there's
a three-year set of controls which
will give the university an excuse
not to raise our wages, it seems
pretty hypocritical.
"I think it's all window dressing
and empty fanfare, but we'll be
very willing to discuss it with the
administration if they want,"
MacKenzie said.
Most of Kenny's proposals are
requests to deans that they present
data on the number of women
students and teachers in their
faculties, as well as on women
working outside the university in
fields related to the subjects
studied in the faculty.
Deans were to be asked to submit
proposals for increasing the
percentage of women in their
faculties.
But although the deans meet
with Kenny twice monthly, Kenny's proposals have not been
discussed yet.
"The proposals were on the
agenda at the last meeting, but we
didn't get to them," dean of women
Margaret Fulton said Monday.
"They will be the first thing on
the agenda for the next meeting."
Deans will meet with Kenny
again today.
centage of all these universities —
3.2 per cent — into administration."
(Academic costs include the
library, student services research
and faculty.
While higher education may be
expensive at UBC," the money is
being used wisely ... in short, we
may not be cheap, but at least we
are economical," Kenny claimed.
Kenny said the quality of faculty
is not just a matter of whether they
are good teachers, but that they
are also good learners.
"The faculty is paid to learn as
well as to teach, to do the research
which is essential for the growth of
knowledge, the growth of students
and the growth of society," Kenny
said.
Kenny referred to Vancouver
Sun columnist Doug Collins who
has recently criticized the high
salaries UBC faculty receive.
"There seem to be a few people
around right now who are engaged
in a kind of page six crusade,
though some have called it a
vendetta, on the subject of faculty
salaries, criticizing UBC in particular for the shocking amount it
pays its faculty," Kenny said.
"I only have one answer to this
criticism — Mr. Collins you are
right about at least one thing — we
do pay our faculty well . . . and I
am proud we do."
The average salary of a faculty
member at UBC is $26,000 this
year, which is anywhere from $150
to $2,000 more than the average
paid at other major Canadian
universities, Kenny said.
If there are cutbacks, Kenny
said, there will be large sacrifices
also.
"We would lose the university
'presence' in the community and in
the lives of the individual members
of our society. We would lose in
social and individual quality of life
— in the many intangibles, ideas,
stimulations and awarenesses to
which universities contribute
enormously," he said.
"And in the area of research —
we would lose the many direct
benefits which that activity at the
university produces for the
province.
"The degree of our economical
and political independence
depends in the long run on the
quality of our higher education,"
Kenny said.
AUCC report deplores
low Canadian content
Despite the growing force of
Canadian nationalism, our
universities are teaching less
about Canada than ever.
That is the conclusion of a four-
year study of Canadian studies
done for the Association of
Universities and Colleges of
Canada, representing university
and college administrators.
The 350-page report was compiled by Thomas Symons, AUCC's
commissioner of Canadian studies
and chairman of the Ontario
Human Rights commission, with 15
researchers.
According to the report, only
about 40 per cent of anthropology
professors at Canadian universities are Canadian citizens, only
54 per cent of geography profs are
Canadian, only 60 per cent of
economics profs, and 65 per cent of
political science profs are
Canadians.
Some sociologists went as far as
to suggest to the researchers that
there is opposition in many
sociology departments toward
Canadians because "once one hires
a few then they will be pushing for
more and more."
These high percentages of non-
Canadian profs are responsible for
a much worse problem — the fact
that there is a serious lack of
Canadian content in the curricula.
For example, the commission
found despite high and increasing
interest in Canadian literature,
only eight per cent of English
courses dealt with Canadian
literature.
"The commission is prepared to
argue that there is now a substantial body of Canadian
literature that merits such study
for its own sake," the report says.
Universities have overlooked
Anything for a crowd
The Alma Mater Society is using the Goose Creek Symphony and two
round trip tickets to Europe as bait to attract a quorum of 1,500 students
for its annual general meeting noon Wednesday in SUB.
Among the items on the agenda will be a series of motions to clean up
the wording of the new society constitution that was approved by students
last November, a year-end report by AMS president Jake van der Kamp
and the approval of an auditor.
The meeting will be held in the SUB conversation pit.
Van Blarcom said people will circulate through the crowd getting
names and student numbers. Sheets of paper containing the names will
be put into one barrel while a second barrel is filled with numbers.
Someone will be asked to draw a number, then a sheet of name-filled
paper. The winner of one ticket will be the person who is that number on
the list. The same procedure will be repeated for the second ticket, both of
which were donated by the Association of Student Councils. Both tickets
are round trip flights to London and may only be used by the winners.
geography, even though Canada's
land mass is the second-largest of
any nation in the world, and extremely varied.
"Geography appears to be a
neglected discipline at a surprising
number of Canadian universities,"
the report said. It also charged that
"at several universities more
intensive study is devoted to the
geography of areas of Africa,
Europe and Central and South
America."
According to the report, 34 per
cent of history students in Canada
are taking courses in Canadian
history, yet these courses account
for about 20 per cent of all history
courses offered.
This "suggests that in this field,
as in many others, student interest
is well ahead of course structure,"
as far as Canadian studies are
concerned.
The report complained that
political science departments
teach more about American
political systems than about the
Canadian political system.
And it points out that no one has
ever bothered to write a book about
the Liberal party in Canada, even
though the party has dominated
Canadian federal politics since the
death of John A. Macdonald.
But the report saved its best
shots for anthropology and
sociology departments in Canadian
universities. It said they are
dominated by foreign faculty. "No
doubt both academic snobbery and
the old-boy network played a
part," the study noted.
American domination of
sociology programs has produced
"incongruous and even absurd"
results, such as courses on race
relations and cultural pluralism
ignoring French-English relations,
Canadian multi-culturalism and
native peoples, and instead
analyzing race and ethnic relations
in the United States.
The report also criticized the fact
that "there is an acute shortage of
skilled Canadians in both interpretation and translation" of
French and English languages.
It recommended that university
and college graduates should be
able to understand both French
and English and be able to "have
some ability to converse in the
second language."
It also recommended that
universities should make
proficiency in a second language a
requirement for any graduate
studies program. Page 4
THE       UBYSSEY
Tuesday, March 9, 1976
Chop talk
In reacting to the Social Credit government's firing of
two NDP-appointed board of governors members it would
be simple to term the move "shocking", "disgusting",
"shoddy" and "sick."
The purge of the board announced Friday is an
unprecedented infiltration by a provincial government into
the supposed autonomous operations of a university.
But the best way to phrase The Ubyssey reaction is
two words: it figures.
After living with this "responsible" government for
nearly three months now, bloodletting of the type
witnessed Friday is hardly unexpected. It's just the
opposite.
Clive Lytle and Bing Thom, both of whom are staunch
NDP supporters appointed shortly after the former
government revamped the Universities Act, were fired in
mid-term. To say that the move is anything but political
manipulation is nothing short of a fib.
Lytle, a B.C. Federation of Labor official, was known
on the board to be a tenacious fighter for the interests of
the B.C. workingperson when considering university affairs.
The candid feeling of one board member is that Lytle
fought too hard for his group and that possibly nine of the
15 board types are happy to see him go.
Perhaps education minister Pat McGeer, when he took
a moment away from ICBC to think about educational
issues, feared that Lytle was too strong and effective a
voice for the average taxpayer?
As for Thom, an architect who openly supported the
NDP during the last provincial election, he was even more
of a surprise according to other board members who found
him more agreeable than Lytle. On Thorn's leaving, the
board is said by one member to be split about 50-50.
The scales have now been tipped, as Lytle says, back
in favor of the lawyer-businessmen types who have
dominated UBC's board of governors for so many years.
The Socreds accomplished it by axing only two members, a
major bloodbath being disagreeable to the university
community and the public generally.
But whether it's two or 10, the principal of firing
people from a supposedly autonomous institution to
pervert progressive ideas is just as disgusting.
For incompetence one deserves to be fired. However
when the motivation is to stifle opinions from a given
sector then it's time to look again at the crew of
hatchetmen in Victoria.
Again we have a chance to see whose interests this
new Social Credit government represents and how they
handle themselves to ensure the continuance of status quo
power.

Letters
Richard
rants
In response to your front page
last Thursday regarding CITR, I
feel you have misrepresented the
circumstances which surround our
upcoming presidential elections.
Your source is very confused and
obviously scared to be identified
which, in itself, illustrates the
weak basis for so many of The
Ubyssey's articles this year. Is
there a source?
Mark Forrest, who is running
against me for the position of CITR
president has indicated that his
intentions are only to create
competiton to generate interest
among the station members. He
does have an interest in the
position but not a fist-fighting
attitude as you have implied. Mark
and I have been friends for over
two years and it was I who appointed him program director
earlier this year (not "musical
director" as you stated). His
program criticisms are therefore
self-directed.
Music is not the issue! A
president's job is to administer and
represent his organization to the
best of his ability. I feel I have
more than filled the role. CITR has
three well-experienced students
who run our music department and
every station member will agree to
that fact.
They have done an admirable
job. Music should not be the
directing force of CITR but special
campus-oriented programs to
make us unique. Music is important and it's up to the music
director to sense the best music for
our audience. My personal taste in
music is not reflected at CITR.
In reference to spending my
summers raising money for CITR,
I think you well know we'd never
find Gary Coull, the Ubyssey
editor, out raising funds to cover
an overstated Ubyssey budget.
People forget I have to pay $10 to
be a member of CITR as do our
other hard working executives.
I don't know anyone who believes
in a "pay-to-work" philosophy of
this nature, especially on a year-
round basis. We are here to be
broadcasters and learn from the
experience not fight for survival
year after year.
Mark said CITR needs a new
direction. I agree fully and CITR's
FM cable licence will inspire this
change. CITR now has a
momentum that should not be
broken, otherwise considerable
effort already sacrificed will be
lost.
The criticism of my financial
ability is unfounded. I have raised
close to $5,000 over two years to
make CITR the only campus radio
station in Canada to have complete
coverage of varsity hockey.
My efforts to create a badly
needed UBC spirit have been
recognized from the UBC president
on down. "Cousin Dickie" has
brought a new flare to discos held
on campus. Successes have included fund drives for the hockey
'Birds, the ski and skydiving clubs.
-Your questionable source of
information has again failed to
supply you with the real facts.
My intention in September was
to gain maximum publicity on
campus LOADED or otherwise. I
would like to thank The Ubyssey
for helping me acehieve that goal
though much of your coverage was
distorted  and   inaccurate.   Three
front page articles for CITR is a
record. One we won't play.
Have a good summer Gary!

Bob Rayfield wants his name in the third line, but that's too bad. And

nice mastheads, and Heather Walker wants me to be mean." Oh well.
Chris Gainor would have gone into the masthead if he'd worked today.
And Marek Buckshon and Anne Wallace used their visiting privileges
Plebs
A few of the points raised in your
article last Thursday on CITR need
to be cleared up.
(1) Greg Ioannou is music
director. Mark Forrest is program
director.
(2) It will not do for Richard
Saxton to claim that it was not his
responsibility to secure funds for
the station. Although fund raising
is the job of the business manager,
as chief executive the president is
responsible for seeing to it that
other members of the executive
perform their job well. S-vton
failed to do this, as is evidenced Dy
the precarious financial position in
which the station found itself in
September.
Moreover, the summer should
have been used as a time to raise
financial support for the station.
Saxton could not or did not take the
time to ensure that the station
would be in a good financial
position in September. If he had
known he would not be able to
devote enough time to work for the
station in the summer then he
should not have run for president.
(3) There have been clashes
between Saxton and the music
department on several occasions.
Whenever members of the music
department have attempted to
make  the  music   sound   of  the
station more progressive, Saxton
has opposed them for one reason or
another. In disputes within the
department or within the station,
Saxton habitually favors the most
conservative programming
proposal.
He has tried to maintain the
status quo, and although he has not
tried to make the station any more
commercial than it is he has not
helped it to become more
progressive. Many persons at the
station feel that the quality of
music at the station <s at times
mediocre and at others deplorable.
Saxton's Top 10 countdown is one
aspect of the commercial (if not
AM) route he plans to take the
station on. This is a route contrary
to the trend of other campus radio
stations in North America today
(which is to provide a real alternative to commercial radio).
(4) The research on an FM
license for the station has not been
Saxton's work alone. Other
members, including those who
were members of the station in
previous years and have now left,
also worked on the committee that
worked toward obtaining an FM
license. None of them expected any
reward for services rendered. It
was enough to work for the
progress of the station.

soapbox
Recipe for stagnation,
Kenny has it down pat
By SUE VOHANKA
There's this foolproof recipe
making the rounds on campus
these days — and it's been perfected by UBC's administration.
It's dished out whenever a group
in the university is anywhere close
to accomplishing some changes in
the status quo at UBC. And it goes
like this:
Take one committee. Or form
one committee. Better yet, form a
whole bunch of committees. Add
plenty of red tape, a large amount
of bureaucracy, and carefully
avoid all traces of controversy.
Most important, make sure the
committees never have any power.
If they're anything more than
advisory groups, they might
change something.
The end product is the good old
status quo at UBC.
That's exactly what administration president Doug
Kenny is concocting when he
' claims he's going to work at
"improving the lot" of women on
campus.
On Feb. 4, Kenny announced he
would set up a number of committees to look around campus and
try to determine whether or not sex
discrimination really does exist at
UBC.
Of course, nothing has happened
yet with any of the committees
that Kenny said he'll get around
to forming.
What isn't quite so obvious or
well-known is what happened in the
two months before Kenny came out
with his announcement about how
he'll improve women's lot.
Last year happened to be International Women's Year.
A group of UBC women
organized an ad hoc committee on
IWY, and throughout the' year
initiated, produced or supported
some 90 events to demonstrate and
interpret the changing roles of
women.
Last December, the ad hoc
committee submitted a report on
its activities to Kenny.
More than that, the committee
submitted with its report a
►proposal for continuing action. It
wanted Kenny to set up a
president's task force on women at
UBC.
A covering letter that accompanied the report and the task
force proposal said: "We believe
that change in attitudes toward
women in society will not take
place unless the institutions of that
society take positive actions to
improve opportunities within their
organizations."
The letter also said the ad hoc
committee wanted to see the task
force in operation by Feb. 1. The
letter and the report were submitted to Kenny Dec. 15.
Kenny didn't get around to an
swering the letter or responding to
the task force proposal until Feb. 5.
That's several days past the time
the ad hoc committee wanted to
have the task force operating —
and it was the day after Kenny
announced his plans for all kinds of
new committees.
What's even more interesting, is
that when Kenny finally got around
to responding to the committee, he
totally ignored its proposal for a
task force.
"I have read your report with
great interest," Kenny said in his
letter to the committee.
"I would like to assure you that
the work of your committee represents a substantial contribution,
not only to the success of International Women's Year on the
campus, but more importantly to
the continuation of our joint efforts
to improve the situation of women
in the university.
"Specifically, its input was an
important one to the recently
announced initiatives undertaken
by this office," Kenny added in the
letter.
But what Kenny had done in his
letter was carefully avoid even
acknowledging the task force
proposal and gone ahead and set up
a whole series of vague, hazy
committees instead.
Why? What was in the proposal
that caused it to be completely
ignored?
For one thing, the proposal came
from a group of women who had
been actively involved in the issues
for a year already — they didn't
have to start off from nowhere.
They knew what they were talking
about, and they wanted changes in
the status quo.
In a short letter that outlined
the purpose of the proposed task
force, the committee members
said the ad hoc committee "is
concerned that the stating of
policies is not necessarily sufficient to ensure that actions match
intentions."
The letter went on: "In spite of
research already done, on the
situation of women on this campus,
no officially designated structure
has been established to ensure that
improvement takes place in the
status of women at the university."
It's pretty threatening stuff, isn't
it? Demands for real change — a
demand for real action instead of
more words.
But the task force proposal went
further than just demanding action
—- it set out a plan for how the
university could act.
It even suggested terms of
reference for the proposed task
force. For example, the proposal
said the task force should compile
information on the situation
women faculty, staff and students
at UBC in the areas of:
Murray admits ignorance
From page 1
Murray conceded that he is
unaware of the course load
requirements for students who sit
on the board or the Alma Mater
Society's student representative
assembly.
Student reps elected to senate
and the board will sit on the SRA
under the new AMS constitution.
Senate has ruled that to be
eligible for posts on senate,
students must carry at least 12
units of courses, and student reps
on the board must carry six units.
The new AMS constitution states
that SRA members be full-time
students taking a minimum of nine
units.
Murray said the Universities Act
is unclear on defining course
requirements for students.
Murray, who graduates this year
from civil engineering, hinted that
he may return to UBC in the fall on
a limited graduate program
"perhaps carrying one and one-
half units."
He said that student reps on
Simon Fraser University's board
of governors have to carry only one
course.
But a spokesman for UBC's
registrar's office said Monday that
students expecting to continue
sitting on the board after their
graduation are required to carry a
minimum of six units.
• recruitment, acceptance and
retention of students by faculties;
• curricular and extracurricular
programs and opportunities;
• hiring, salary, tenure and
promotion;
e representation on policymaking committees;
• and other areas which the task
force may find pertinent.
The proposal also said the task
force should examine the policies
and practices of the university with
regard to the status of women,
"identify problems facing women in
achieving full participation in the
university and establish priorities
for solving the problems that are
identified.
And the task force should also
recommend new policies and
practices necessary to further full
participation of women in
university life, the proposal said.
Finally, the task force should
design and recommend specific
action programs for each priority
area and the organizational
mechanisms required to ensure
implementation.
It's pretty thorough. Given those
terms of reference, a task force
would have a clear directive to
actually make sure that
discrimination against women at
UBC was ended.
The proposal to Kenny went
beyond suggesting terms of
reference for a task force. It even
suggested a structure for the task
force, so that it could work.
The proposal said the task force
should represent students, faculty,
staff and administration, should
include both men and women, and
be limited to 25 members.
And to make the work go more
quickly, the proposal suggested a
steering committee be named
"and we would respectfully
request that this be done immediately."
A course of action was all dished
up on a silver platter — terms of
reference, a suggested structure
for the task force to make it work
efficiently.
The proposal went one step
farther and actually suggested a
list of men and women who could
be named to the task force and the
steering committee.
After all, after working for more
than a year on projects designed to
show the changing roles of women,
the women who drew up that task
force proposal must know which
people on campus were prepared
to work most effectively at actually ridding UBC of
discrimination.
So all the president's office
would have had to do is get a
blindfold, pick a bunch of names
from a list, approve the structure
of the task force and okay its terms
of reference.
But that's not quite what happened.
Instead, there's going to be a
whole series of committees. Only
Kenny knows what sort of terms of
reference they're going to have
and who will sit on them.
There's been no clear commitment of money to make sure
that changes do happen — in fact,
there's hardly even an
acknowledgment of the fact that
discrimination does exist at UBC.
One thing is pretty clear though,
from the way Kenny has been
operating to "improve women's
lot."
He sure knows how to follow a
recipe. Page 6

UBC curlers too Canada West
By BOB RAYFIELD
The Thunderbird men's curling
team won the Canada West curling
title Saturday by defeating the
University of Victoria 6-5 in the
extra end of a playoff.
The Thunderbird women's team
also competed in the tournament
held on Thursday, Friday and
Saturday at the winter sports
centre, but, to put it mildly, did not
fare as well. .
The curling skills exhibited by all
the teams in the competition were
of a high calibre making the
competition much better and
tougher than last year.
The men's teams were evenly
matched and the winner wasn't
determined until late Saturday
' night.
Thursday's  competition  wasn't
too exciting because the teams
were getting used to the ice and the
better teams had yet to exhibit
their class.
But on Friday the curling had
improved and there were some
exciting contests.
Two matches had interesting
results. One, in the men's section,
was when UBC went against
Alberta. Because the men were
playing a double round robin, UBC
played each team twice.
Defending champion Alberta
was expected to be the team to
beat. Skipped by Bruce Lewis, the
team had to go through a 46-rink
elimination to qualify as the
Canada West representatives for
its university.
Alberta won the Canada West
title the last four years.
But UBC played a strong game
Friday and the Alberta team had
problems. The result was a UBC
victory: 10-8.
The UBC men's team was
composed of Ron Thompson
(skip), Bob Holden, Doug Hopp
and Dennis Rounsville.
The four teams in the men's
division were UBC, UVic,
University of Lethbridge and the
University of Alberta.
As Saturday's matches started,
Lethbridge was in first place with
three wins and one loss and a
chance to win the tournament. But
Alberta defeated them in one game
and the UVic team defeated them
in the other.
This left all the men's teams in a
four-way tie for first place.
The UVi'c team was the youngest
in the tournament and was skipped
by Rob Cummings. UVic lost its
first three games but came back to
win the next three.

wasted no time in flicking a high
wrist short over the right shoulder
of the sprawling Weishaupt.
. The 'Birds outshot the Germans
19-11 in that period, and had many
other shots that missed the net, but
had to be satisfied with a 10-0 lead.
The 'Birds territorial advantage
lasted until mid-way through the
second period, when the tide began
to turn. Just after Wayne Hendry
had finished serving a tripping
penalty, Hans Zach finished off a
pretty play by putting a backhand
past Ron Lefebvre. Lefebvre, who
replaced 'Bird starter Ian Wilkie,
who still hadn't completely
covered from a bout with
pneumonia, after the first period,
played brilliantly for the 'Birds,
especially in the second period,
where they were outshot 17-7.
But just as the momentum
seemed to be swinging to the
Germans, Stuart and Boyd again,
teamed up for a goal. Stuart took
a pass from Boyd right off the
faceoff and quickly slid it past
Weishaupt, who seemed to be
screened on the shot.
After Stuart's goal, the game
briefly deteriorated into a string of
penalties and fights, the only incidents marring the spirited, hardhitting game. The 'Birds ended up
the losers: because of the
overlapping penalties, there were
only six skaters on the ice. The
Germans took advantage of all that
extra room and literally skated
rings around the confused 'Birds,
who have never played three-on'
three and lacked the experience
the Germans had.
Udo Kiessling converted a
dazzling pass play from Alois
Schloder and Rainer Philipp at
19:47 of the period to tie the score
at 2-2.
The teams were still playing with
three skaters a side when West
German star Erich Kuhnhackl
fired a hard shot from about 55 feet
out on the left wing past Lefebvre
at 1:49 of the final period.
But a few minutes later, with a
German man-advantage, the
'Birds staged their comeback, as
Lawrence pushed off a check from
Kiessling and shovelled the puck
past Weishaupt,

A special playoff was necessary
when the four rinks were all tied.
In the playoffs, Alberta faced
Victoria and UBC went against
Lethbridge.
In the UBC-Lethbridge game
UBC had a comfortable 5-2 lead
going into the eighth end, but Lethbridge scored three to tie the score.
Then Lethbridge stole one in the
ninth end to lead by one but in the
tenth end Thompson of UBC drew
in to the four-foot circle to tie the
score.
UBC hung on in the eleventh end
to steal one and win the game.
In the UVic-Alberta game, UVic
took command of the game in the
seventh end.
In the ninth end they stole one on
a great draw shot by Cummings
and stole three more in the tenth
end to win the match 9-4.
UBC and Victoria played in the
final game and it proved to be a
close contest. In the fifth end the
game was tied 3-3, and the next two
ends were blanked by Victoria
which had last stone.
In the seventh end, UBC stole one
and then did it again in the eighth
end. But Victoria scored one in the
ninth and stole one in the tenth,
making an extra end necessary.
That's when Thompson of UBC
drew to the four-foot circle to get
one and win the tournament.
It was UBC's first Canada West'
curling championship since  1965.
There were six teams in the
women's division — UBC, UVic,
Lethbridge, University of Alberta,
University of Calgary and
University of Saskatchewan.
Defending champion in the
women's division was the
Saskatchewan team. Their game
against Calgary had interesting
results.
It was a game that saw lots of
mistakes by the Saskatchewan
team. Calgary was quick to
capitalize on them. Calgary made
some great draw shots and some
key takeouts to hand the Saskatchewan team its only defeat of the
tournament. The final score was
10-7.
Representing UBC in the
women's division were Laurie
Jansen (skip), Laurie Thain,
Sheila Wells and Sharon Carlson.
The UBC women's team played
their best game of the tournament
on Friday afternoon when they
faced the University of Alberta.
Alberta was previously unbeaten
but UBC had complete command
of the game, stealing a shot from
Alberta in the eighth end with
Alberta counting three.
In the ninth end, skip Laurie
Jansen made a great double
takeout to get one -point and they
hung on in the tenth end for a well-
deserved win, 12-8.
However, it was the only UBC
women's victory of the tournament.
The UBC women's team is
coached by Charlie Kerr, a job he
has held for 17 years. He has been
associated with curling for more
than 40 years. One of his proteges
is Lindsay Davie.
The team has some young
members and all of them will be
back to compete next year.
The team showed some fine
curling skills and the desire to win.
With these attributes they can be
winners next year.
The women's competition was
won by Saskatchewan. This was
not surprising considering the
talent and ability of this team.
They were coached by Vera
Pezer, who won the Canadian
women's championships four
times, once as a second, and the
succeeding years as skip.
Pat Crimp was the team skip and
last year was the Canadian junior
champion, skipping her Saskatchewan team to victory. Her sister
was the skip of the Saskatchewan
team which last year won the
Canada West. Third Gillian
Thompson has played for the
Saskatchewan team for the past
three years.
In the final game Saskatchewan
faced Alberta in a closely-fought
contest. In the tenth end the score
was tied so an extra end was
necessary.
Alberta was counting three but
Saskatchewan had last rock and
Crimp drew to the centre and won
the match. Saskatchewan
dominated the other women's
teams in sweeping and in their
deliveries. It was the key to their
victories.
