EXPRESSING DISGUST at martini-like microphone held out by inquiring reporter, grand poobah of lotus land
laments that he'd ordered something not quite as metallic and a little more liquid. "I ask for a drink and you give
me gall mixed with vinegar." Premier was out to ivory tower to inform commerce students that getting into
government is much more cost effective than any private industry. You can set your own taxes and profits at will.

Council changes election format
By GLEN SANFORD
A proposal to combine election
of the Alma Mater Society president with elections for student
representatives to the board of
governors was accepted by student
council Wednesday night.
The proposal, which would bring
several dramatic changes to the format of student elections, will be
presented to the UBC senate at its
October meeting.
Student council wants to:
• separate the board and senate
elections
• hold the board elections in
conjunction with the AMS
presidential election
• hold the remaining AMS executive elections one week later
than the board and presidential
elections
• and hold senate elections entirely separately
"The board and senate elections
are too major to be held on the
same day. This would highlight the
senate elections," AMS president
Bruce Armstrong said.
Armstrong also said he hopes to
bring more attention to the election
of the AMS executive.
"Lumping the president with executive in one election basically
drowns the executive," he said.
According to the new proposal,
students would elect the AMS president and representatives to the
board of governors during the week
of Jan. 19. The director of finance,
director of administration, coordinator of external affairs and
vice-president would be elected during the week of January 26.
Student senators would be
elected during the week of Feb. 23.
In other council news, a motion
was passed to release $808 to the
women's committee for maintaining costs.
The committee submitted a
budget requesting over $8,000 last
spring, but communication
breakdowns between that committee and the budget committee
prevented approval of the budget,
council was informed.
Three representatives of the
women's committee explained that
over the summer most members of
the women's committee were not
able to meet with the budget committee.
Al Soltis, co-ordinator of external affairs, blamed the incident on a
confusing constitutional code.
He said "in summer, the AMS
executives are all over hell and the
women's committee just got lost in
the confusion."
Council also passed a motion to
urgently request the board of governors to allow public scrutiny of the
lease of discovery park before it is
signed.
Originally, the motion called for
an expression of dissatisfaction to
be   made   to   the   board   for   not
holding public meetings on the
Discovery Park issue. But mover
Marty Lund amended the motion to
simply request the board to make
provisions for public input into the
issue.
"The motion became really
watered down," said Craig Brooks,
"Otherwise I don't think it would
have passed."

Students can expect less services
in return for this year's 10 per cent
tuition fee hike.
Salaries at UBC have to be cut by
$2.1 million over the next year
because the provincial government
operating grant hasn't kept up with
inflation, an administration
spokesman said Wednesday.
"Thjis year there will be a 1.7 per
cent cutback from the salaries
budget, university wide. In dollars,
that's $2.1 million," said
spokesman Al Hunter.
Coupled with a nine per cent increase last year when inflation increases for Canadian universities
ran at 12 percent, the university's
budget is very tight. $2.1 million
must be found to continue services
at an adequate level and according
to student board of governors rep
Anthony Dickinson, "they can'!
take it out of anywhere else but the
net salaries."
"We're not going to start firing
people," said Robert Grant, director of employee relations. Job cuts
will be made through attrition according to Hunter. There will be no
effect of the cutbacks on people
already employed until April, or the
end of the contract terms, said
Dickinson.
UBC asked for a 10 per cent wage
increase this year according to
Hunter, well below the provincial
Students blast
Socreds' Bill 82
average of 12.5 per cent. But the
university received an effective increase of only 7.9 per cent.
"We got an operating grant increase of 8.7 per cent," said
Hunter. "Due to certain line items
as determined by the Universities
Council of B.C., that's an increase
of, effectively, 7.9 per cent."
No decisions have been made yet
as to which departments and
faculties will be cut back. "Parts of
the system may get off scot-free,
but whole faculties won't," said
Dickinson. "We don't know where
the cutbacks will come from. There
are insufficient funds, and we can't
support everybody."
"Clearly the total funds available
to the university require some
reallocation . . . and the reduction
or elimination of funding for particular programs," said a budget
committee report released to Senate
last Wednesday. "But ... it is
clear that financial, rather than
academic, considerations
significantly affect the decisions
that are made."
The report added that inflation
"posed a special problem for the
library which had to contend with
the declining value of the Canadian
dollar as well ... a similar problem was faced by several
faculties."
By NANCY CAMPBELL
Legislation providing for complete government control of college
boards has provoked mixed reactions from the college community.
Students are angry about the
legislation, which increases the
number of government appointees
to college boards by two people.
"It's becoming clearer and
clearer that the government is trying
to get more direct control over the
colleges," Steve Shallhorn,
spokesman for the B.C. Students'
Federation charged Wednesday. He
said that the removal of voting
rights from students, staff and
faculty members of college boards
several years ago is one manifestation of the government's bid to control the colleges.
College boards are made up of
school board and government appointees. Before the amendment
was passed to the Colleges and Provincial Institutes Act (Bill 82),
boards were made up of at least one
member from each of the school
districts served, with the number of
goverment appointees being one
less than school board appointees.
But the amendment has changed
the number of government appointees to one more than the
number of school board appointees, as well as decreasing the
term of a shcool board appoitee to
one year from two.
"The amendment contradicts the
basic philosophy of community colleges and is destructive to the
autonomy of college boards," said
Shallhorn. BCSF sent a letter protesting the action to the provincial
goverment in May.
But college administrators are
not complaining, or at least not
very loudly. Administrators at
Capilano College and Vancouver
City College said that their institutions are still waiting for more information on the amendment.
"We don't know what is happening and we have no indication of
when it will happen," Capilano
College principal Paul Gallagher
said Wednesday.
"We've accepted the amendment
as a fait accompli," said VCC principal Antony Manera.

Cop cutback coming
By MARK LEIREN-YOUNG
Police night patrols at UBC could be reduced
because of government spending cutbacks, the commanding officer of the local RCMP detachment said
Wednesday.
Sgt. Fred Hardy said that while the population in
the UBC area is up to 33,000, two members were cut
in 1978, and another two could be cut in the near
future. This cutback will reduce the force to nine
members.
"I don't want to see any more decreases. I think
that the UBC students and the whole university community deserve good police services, so naturally I
am distressed," said Hardy.
"It's mostly cutbacks from the provincial government that are causing it," said Hardy.
"There could possibly be some funding from the
UBC administration, because you have the UBC traffic and security patrol, and they have about 51
patrolmen as opposed to our 11, and the funding for
their operation comes directly from the university,"
he said.
"I haven't identified any particular things that
we're going to cut back yet," he said.
"I'll have to monitor priorities very carefully and I
don't think we'll be able to maintain as high a level of
service."
One area where cutbacks are being considered are
the night shifts, Hardy said.
"We may have to look at the 4 a.m. to 7 a.m. shift
for cutbacks as a starting point."
Hardy said one major problem is having the court
and cells in Richmond.
"If we have to take someone down to our cells it
takes two hours."
Hardy said he intends to fight the cutbacks at a
ratepayers association meeting which will be taking
place in the near future.
"I'm not really in a position to lobby as any other
citizen could, but I would call on any student at UBC
that is concerned and would like more police
presence to make representations on their behalf to
people like UBC president Doug Kenny, or the ombudsman," Hardy said.
He said the RCMP handled 2,651 complaints in
1977, 3,677 complaints in 1978, 4,605 in 1979 and
4,156 for 1980 up to September.
"There could be another 1500 by the end of
,1980," he said which would mean an increase of
nearly 1,000 over 1979. Page 2

Bennett says export tax
would bring local cuts
Renovations 'stink'
Summer renovations and
maintenance work that begun in
May at Place Vanier residences are
still unfinished, causing complaints
and unnecessary hassles for
students living there.
Roofs that have leaked for two
years are at last being re-tarred,
resulting in "disgusting" odors and
disruption of student life, said one
Hamber House resident.
"The smell is disgusting," Gail
Shaw said Wednesday. "Why
didn't they get this done in the summer? When I arrived the whole
place was in a state of disrepair.
"There were no lights in the
halls, the stairwells were filthy.
Right now the water in the shower is
Bill 82 hit
From page 1
in April, education minister Brian
Smith referred to the amendment as
a "housekeeping" measure to the
Act to give broader representation
on boards. But some feel it goes
beyond neatness.
Manera said he was concerned
about the amendment's effect on
outlying colleges, where college
board members sometimes travel
over a hundred miles to get to board
meetings. Manera said he felt that
the action would discriminate
against local appointees who
couldn't make it to meetings when
government appointees could.
"I'm more interested in getting
good people on the board," he added.
screwed and over twenty girls have
to share one."
Another resident, Pat Cornell,
said the roof re-tarring has forced
him to keep his window closed
every day for the past week to prevent back dust from blowing in.
New locks requested by the Place
Vanier residents' association a year
and a half ago did not arrive until
August.
Maintenance work is more than
half finished but will continue for at
least another week, said on-campus
housing administrator Mary Flores.
She said housing requested help
from the Universities Council to
renovate Place Vanier's house and
improve kitchen facilities in Walter
Gage residences, but were told
money was not available.
There will be no denticare and the
sales tax will double if the federal
government carries out a threat to
impose an export tax on natural
gas, premier Bill Bennett said
Wednesday noon.
Bennett told 300 commerce
students in the Henry Angus
building that the export tax is not
extra money but funds that will go
from the provincial government's
general tax revenue to federal coffers in Ottawa.
He said the long-term effect is to
take billions of dollars directly out
of the pockets of British Columbians.
There would be cutbacks in social
services and the long-term hospital
care program if the tax was imposed, Bennett said.
In response to a charge that B.C.
is being greedy, Bennett said the
province is the most generous in the
country, next to Alberta, through
the federal equalization scheme.
The tax would use B.C. money to
decrease the federal government's
deficit, he said.
Bennett said creating a new tax is
no solution. He said the priority
should be to expand the Prince
Rupert port to handle more coal,
gas, timber, as well as Eastern products, which will create more jobs
here and in the rest of Canada.
"There is no constitutional
crisis," he said. "There is a Canadian economic one, from which
B.C. is protected."
He said the province is the
"bright spot" in Canada's
economic picture and quoted
declining unemployment figures, a
23 per cent increase in capital expenditure by the private sector and
increased growth in small business.
The economic crisis "is a more
meaningful struggle," Bennett
argued. "The constitution won't
create one more job."
He blamed the federal government for using John A.
Macdonald's old National Policy,
which he claimed resulted in inefficient industry.
High tariffs and quotas force
British Columbians to pay an extra
billion dollars for goods.
Bennett said the failure of last
week's conference was due to conflicts between the federal government and the 10 provinces.

By-law drains housing vacancies
By GAIL SHAW
. Restrictive housing by-laws and
inadequate government aid for student accommodation are two of
Vancouver's biggest housing problems, charge student campus housing representatives.
Dave Johnson, UBC off-campus
housing director, said Wednesday
1,500 students could be placed if
self-contained suites were allowed
under Vancouver's by-laws.
Johnson said the most desired
type of housing is "illegal" self-
contained suites on the west side,
which students find are a
reasonable alternative to residence.
"I directly blame the City of
Vancouver for the present
problem," he said. By-laws passed
by the city have made many self-
contained suites illegal, especially
those near the university.
"Rents are skyrocketing off campus because so many types of housing are restricted," said Johnson.
"One bedroom suites on the west
side are up to $450 per suite."
He said landowners know they
can charge as much as they want
because the 10 per cent rent increase
ceiling does not apply to multi-suite
buildings.
For people receiving student aid,
the high rents eat into already inadequate awards.
"Kids are not making enough
money or getting enough money
through student loans," said Yves
Fricot of the Student Housing and
Access Committee. "Financial aid
is still at $65 per week, though the
need is much higher, and the grants
and loans limit needs to be raised.
Fricot said he feels there are two
choices for a solution to the housing
problem: buying local houses to be
rented to students or building a new
residence.
"A third residence would not
resemble either Totem or Gage,"
said Fricot, "but possibly would be
composed of four bedroom apartments not in a tower formation."
Steve Shallhorn, B.C. Students'
Federation spokesman, said the
bottom line on funds for new
residence facilities is "the government now recognizes the problem,
but hasn't yet recognized that
something can be done about it."
"The problem will have to be a
real crisis before the government
will provide funds," commented
Shallhorn on a remark by universities minister Pat McGeer that
"money intended for educational
purposes is not. available to be used
for housing."
Johnson's solution for the housing crisis is to do away with "illegal
suite" by-law restrictions and provide low-cost loans to homeowners
in order to develop and improve
suites.
But there is no urgency about the
solutions. According to Johnson
the desperate scramble for accommodation is over for a while at
least.
"At present there is no panic, as
everyone has a roof over their head,
if only temporarily, and there is no
need for emergency housing," said
Johnson. He said when emergency
housing was available only one student turned up.
Shallhorn agreed that there are
places to stay, but usually they are
either too expensive or inadequate.
He said stories of insect bites and
other discomforts are continually
reported to the BCSF office.
Shallhorn said the housing problem is a "province-wide invisible
crisis" which still exists, although
students have found temporary
housing.
The waiting list for residences at
UBC is moving, but the original list
pf 1,400 men for singles was dented
by just 275 placements. There are
approximately 400 women left on
the list for single rooms, and 50 on
the waiting lists for doubles. There
are still 50 men on the list for a double room.
Johnson also has a warning
about commercial rental agencies.
"Students are getting ripped
off," said Johnson. "We encourage our students not to go to
these agencies. Often the fee is paid
and then suites are not available or
adequate."
There are agencies operating out
of Burnaby who "advertise
lavishly" in Vancouver papers and
charge between $25 and $40 for
their services, he said. Operation of
these agencies in Vancouver is illegal.
Fricot said a report will be coming out in early October which will
investigate the background and
solutions to the present housing
shortage.
The problem exists across the
country. Nearly 5,000 Carleton
University students are walking the
streets of Ottawa in a search for
clean, affordable housing.
Dick Brown, Carleton's director
of housing, said the decline in the
number of rental units suitable for
students over the years has caused
the shortage. Many duplexes and
boarding houses in the city's core
are being converted to single home
dwellings which- has put numerous
students out on the streets, said
Brown.
He also said rent control legislation has deterred landlords form
building more apartments.
The three post-secondary institutions in Ottawa attract a total of
15,000 out-of-town students annually. But the residences can only
house a total of 2,500 students and
all rooms are full with long waiting
lists.

and not appropriate for Bishop's."
Students spent close to an hour
burning about 100 handbook copies
in an open field near the university.
The handbook has been a subject of
controversy on the campus of 2,000
students becuase of allegedly
editorial bias towards homosexuals.
Dixon   Kenner,    one   of   the
students at the demonstration called
the burning "a statement." "The
cover of the handbook says better
blatant than latent doesn't it? Well,
we're being blatant."
Handbook editor Daron
Westman, an avowed homosexual
and president of Bishop's
Champlain Gay Student Alliance,
said the handbook burning has put
him "in shock".
"I expected an articulated
negative reaction . . . never
anything so organized. So many
people working in unision," he
said.
He added he finds the students'
negative reaction surprising and
frightening.
"They are trying to stop the
spread of ideas. It shows students
are now as reactionary as the administration if not more so."
College officials had halted the
handbook's distribution for alleged
inaccuracies, ommissions and
editorial bias towards gays.
The demonstration was apparently spontaneous and one eyewitness
said: "It began as a joke and then
spread all over campus by word of
mouth."
Many students at the demonstration called the handbook "gay pro-
poganda" and said they were concerned give new students a wrong
impression of the proportion of gay
students on campus.
Westman estimates there are between 30 and 40 campus gays.
Bishop's principal C.I.H. Nicholl
and student president Ian Pennell
refused to comment on the incident.
posal giving three pay rates for TA
jobs that depend on the academic
degrees held by the TAs, said
Mosoff.
"Their position is also rates of
pay for two years and that's one of
our differences. We're looking at
one year contracts," she added.
But according to employee relations director and university
negotiating committee chair Bob
Grant, the administration's position is more "realistic."
"Our position is that it is more
realistic to follow all the other collective agreements with the TAs
across the country. After all we
want to attract high quality
graduates to our programs and
therefore it makes sense to us to be
in line with this practice," said
Grant.
Mosoff said that rather than meet
to discuss single issues the employer
will now prepare a package which
will include their position on all the
union's outstanding issues including money.
"We reached a point where we
don't think it's fruitful to continue
to talk about single issues.
"We are planning to study their
package and prepare our position
and a response to their package,"
she said. The two sides will meet
again on Oct. 2
According to union spokesperson
Paul Redfern the outstanding issues
include; wages and benefits, union
security and  management  rights.
academic freedom and quality of
education.
Mosoff said the most important
issue in the negotiations is the
discrepency between rates of pay in
different departments." We have to
find some way of reaching parity
across departments."
She added while negotiations are
proceeding normally the outstanding issues are very important. "I
think both sides would like it (the
contract) signed as soon as
possible."

Bennett refused to answer questions about the current BCRIC-
Kaiser Resources scandal, noting
the province only has a five per cent
interest in BCRIC and did not vote.
The premier slammed the federal
government for not responding to
the housing crisis. He said the B.C.
government is looking at provincial
capital allowances designed to
stimulate apartment growth and
transferring crown land over to the
private sector.
Bennett was the first speaker of

Let's cut 'em back
Cutbacks.
Every once in a while that word is brought jarringly back into our
minds. Today is certainly such a day.
First, the provincial government, through its tight-fisted policy of
"raising" university budgets by amounts which are a joke when
compared to increases in costs due to inflation, is at it again.
The $2.1 million cut in university wages won't affect thee or me.
Not yet. But they will certainly have an eventual effect on the services we are all supposed to be provided with. Losing $2 million
worth of workers can't help but slow down a system that already
seems to be lurching towards total inefficiency.
And that's not all.
Though the job of RCMP on campus has gotten tougher each of
the last four years and complaints handled by the university
detachment will be up nearly 25 per cent this year, the provincial
government has cut back funding for them, too.
The RCMP says it might not be able to put on adequate night
patrols and will have to reduce staff in general. In the current situation, this is a disaster.
Complaints of rapists and other nightcrawlers on campus increased dramatically last year. And for several years the RCMP
have been telling us that vandalism and theft are steadily growing
into a major problem.
What is the provincial government's answer to the problem? Cut
back the police.
Just as their answer to declining quality in education is to give
the universities just enough money to ensure their slow strangulation.
All this is going on while the Socreds pile up some $350 million in
budgetary surplus.
$350 million. Now there's a figure that should be cut back.

And the fight against oppression goes on
Sir:
The founding conference to constitute the People's Front Against
Racist And Fascist Violence will be
held in Vancouver on November 22,
1980 at 5880 Main St. hosted by the
East Indian Defence Committee.
This is an important conference,
and all people and organizations
standing in principle against racism
and fascism, irrespective of their
ideological and political viewpoints
and convictions, irrespective of
their religious beliefs, their sex, or
their national origin are invited to
endorse, support and participate in
this conference.
To prepare for this Founding
Conference, the UBC Committee
Against Racist And Fascist
Violence is being formed. An important organizational meeting will
be held on Tuesday, September 23,
1980 at 12:30 pm in Room 205 of
the Student Union Building. The
main speaker will be Comrade Hardial Bains, Chairman of the Central
Committee of the Communist Party
of Canada (Marxist-Leninist). All
opponents of racism and fascism
are invited to this meeting.
The resistance to racist and
fascist violence is growing on a
world scale. In Turkey, the people
have manned the barricades to fight
off the hitlerite MHP gangs and oppose the fascist martial law.
thousands    of   people   have'
demonstrated in Germany to "Stop
Strauss", the neo-nazi war monger.
In Britain, thousands 'have clashed
with the police and the fascists to
ban the neo-nazi and racist National Front.
In Chile, the people have marched in the streets against the fascist
Pinochet regime. In Brazil, the people are fighting against the hitlerite
"killer squads" and the military
regime. In Italy, the workers went
on a general strike to oppose the
resurgence of old style Mussolini
fascism which murdered 82 people
in a bomb attack at the Bologna
train station.
In the U.S.A., the black people
have risen up in Miami,
Philadelphia, Chattanooga, and
many other cities against the racist
shootings by the police and
murderous gangs of the Ku Klux
Klan.
In Canada too, the people are
fighting against racist and fascist
violence. In Toronto, on July 27,
1980, over 500 people participated
in the Conference Against Racist
and Fascist Violence. More than 38
representatives of organizations,
and individuals, addressed the
meeting about the active resistance
of the people.
The Conference pledged to support all the exploited and oppressed: whether workers waging strike
-struggles?  immigrarits   fighting
against racial discrimination or
racist attacks, native people
fighting the genocidal attacks of the
government and for their rights, the
youth fighting against repression in
the schools and the jails, women
and children opposing violent attacks, or the poor fighting back
against government social agencies
and forced labour schemes.
The Conference strongly opposed
the Ku Klux Klan gang, sent to
Canada by U.S. imperialism to
create an atmosphere of fear and intimidation through racist and
fascist violence. The Conference
pledged that the anti-racist and
anti-fascist fighters will never let
this gang of cut-throats get their
organization off the ground.
On August 23, 1980, the East Indian Defence Committee organized
a demonstration of over 200 people
who marched through the
downtown streets of Vancouver
under the banner "Ku Klux Klan
and U.S. Imperialism, Get Out of
Canada!" On August 24, a Conference Against Racist and Fascist
Violence opened in Winnipeg with
the presentation of a petition signed
by 12,855 people declaring they
would never permit the Ku Klux
Klan or other nazis and fascists to
organize in Canada.
A similar petition, published by
the East Indian Defence Committee, is being circulated at UBC and
we urge all anti-fascist and anti-
racist people in the university community to sign it.
In our opinion, the mobilization
of fascist gangs like the KKK is part
of an over-all assault against the living standards and the rights of the
workers and the broad masses by
the rich and their state. The
ecomonic crisis has Canada in its
grip. Real wages went down 3.5 per
cent in the last two years, while profits have skyrocketed. To keep their
profits intact, the wealthy owners
must drive the people into poverty
and ruin. Police-state terror and
open fascist gangs committing
violent attacks against various nationalities and sections of the
workers is part of this general
assault on the well-being of the people.
For these reasons, we link the
fight against the fascist Ku Klux
Klan with the fight against all forms
of oppression by the rich and their
state. The problem is not just one of
a few fascist lunatics, but of a social
system in crisis which seeks a way
out through a regime of open fascist
terror and war. The people must
unite and block this "way out".
Founding the People's Front
Against Racist and Fascist
Violence, and carrying this struggle
through, is important work. The
UBC Committee Against Racist
and Fascist  Violence calls on all
progressive and democratic forces
in the UBC community to attend
the September 23 noon-hour
meeting, and to prepare for and
participate in the Founding Conference of November 22, 1980.

Taxpayer big loser in BCRIC fiasco
In the beginning the intentions
behind the creation of the British
Columbia Resource Investment
Corporation were highly questionable. Now, a full year after
BCRIC's birth, it is obvious that
this holding company is nothing
more than a knife in British Columbia's back. The electors of 1979,
lured by five 'free' shares, ended up
saddled with an anti-British Columbian company; a corporation bent
upon enriching the foreigner at the
expense of our people.
When BCRIC became private in
1979 the accumulated wealth of
several money-making crown corporations was in effect broken up
and dispersed. Not only did our
government throw away a great
deal of future income, but millions
of dollars were also wasted in the
distribution of the BCRIC shares.
Initially it was only the credit
unions and banks (virtually all non-
British Columbian) that profited
from Bennett's 'privatization'
scheme.
Once these shares were given
away or sold, non-British Columbians began buying heavily into
BCRIC. Now it is the big investor in
Toronto who is calling the shots. So
much    for    the    government
RESOURCE  EXPLOITATION:
For Underdevelopment
pipedream of having millions of
British Columbians involved in the
stock market.
Using the number of shares traded as an approximate measure, one
can see the extent to which British
Columbians have lost control of the
company. In Vancouver last week
(Sept. 8-11) 565,106 shares were
traded at the stock exchange, while
418,946 were sold at the Toronto
market.
Facts revealed in Pit hit
PIT renovations! $1.5 million to spend! Money to
burn! Housing crisis! No AMS sponsored housing!
I find it ironic that the present AMS does not learn
from mistakes made by previous student hacks. A
glowing example was the weak-kneed action of the
AMS in 1975 by shutting down the PIT for thirty
days. The "reasons" for doing this were:
— vieled threats from the RCMP because of a
supposed marked increase in campus vandalism
— the milling around inside the PIT of bottle-
fisted students
FACTS:
— no statistics on campus vandalism were ever
provided by the RCMP or Physical Plant so as to
compare to previous years
— it was not illegal to drink beer standing up even
though the PIT had a unique liquor license in those
days
You may ask what this has to do with the above
1980 headlines. In both cases, 1975 and 1980, the
AMS proceeded to decide strictly subjectively and
with gut feelings. Not once, then or now, were all the
facts examined and objective studies drawn up. My
argument  about  the  1980 AMS  project(s) is not
against an English styled pub, etc. but the method in
which that decision was made.
In closing I suggest the following recommendations:
— a feasibility report including proposed construction designs, cost, and funding of the south
side complex
— a feasibility report of AMS sponsored housing
including cost, funding, and statistical analysis of
other Canadian student sponsored housing
— if necessary, employ a professional consultant
for completion of the reports
— that both reports or a reasonable abstract clearly and accurately stating the facts be published in The
Ubyssey.
— establishment of public forums to discuss the
proposals and the reports
Therefore, once the student body is presented with
the whole picture then they can intelligently decide
their priorities — tents or boat races — and base their
decision on the facts.

In other words 42.6 per cent of
the market trade in BCRIC occurred in Toronto. This probably
means that between 30 per cent and
50 per cent of all BCRIC shares are
already in the hands of outsiders.
Thanks to BCRIC we now control
even less of our economy.
However, it is now the Kaiser
Resources fiasco that is costing the
public. For reasons that we can only
speculate on, the Directors of
BCRIC are offering $55 for Kaiser
shares that have a market value of
$32.36. Their stated objective is to
buy at least 50 per cent (about
9,310,000 shares) of Kaiser for a
cost of $512 million.
If BCRIC succeeds in purchasing
the 60 per cent of that company not
held by the Japanese coal corporations, then this acquisition will run
to about $620 million; a cost of
$260 million above market value.
Even if he has already dumped his
five shares, the taxpayer will still
lose since his government owns 4.5
million shares.
In terms of each of the % million
shares this $260 million works out
to a $2.70 loss (about $13.50 for a
set of five 'free' shares). It is no surprise that the stock market value of
BCRIC fell from $7.10 a share to
under $6.50 when the Kaiser deal
was revealed.
Besides those who will sell their
Kaiser Resources shares, the only
winner of this arrangement will be
the Japanese coal interests. Their 40
per cent of Kaiser Resources will increase in value by about $170
million. Thus the same Japanese
corporations who are leeching
millions of dollars out of our coal
fields will become even richer.
One might wonder why the
BCRIC directors made such a poor
deal for the shareholders. But more
importantly why have the stock exchanges and our own government
failed to seriously investigate this
event? What do they think, if
anything, about Mrs. Helliwell's
holdings or the $1.4 million profit
that a BCRIC director could make
if he sells his Kaiser shares to his
employer?
For these reasons it is not surprising that the British Columbia
Resource Investment Corporation,
despite its massive supply of idle
capital (or what's left of it after
Kaiser) has never paid a dividend
and doesn't intend to do so for at
least the next two years. All in all,
BCRIC has turned out to be one of
the greatest acts of economic
treachery ever inflicted upon British
Columbia.

Thursday, September 18,1980
How many students are going to
show up on university campuses
across Canada this fall and in the
years ahead? This is more than an
academic question. At stake are
literally thousands of faculty positions
and millions of dollars in university
funding.
Desperate to conserve both jobs
and money in the face of an apprehended decline in enrolment, some
universities have already resorted to
Dy RORY LEISHMAN
reprinted from Report with
permission from the author
lowering admission standards and
debasing the quality of their
undergraduate programs. A
downward spiral has set in, which will
be more and more difficult to reverse
in the years ahead.
For next year, however, most
universities should get a temporary
reprieve. Last spring, they outdid
themselves in competing for students.
Such ploys as hard-rock radio jingles
extolling the pleasures of campus life
at some of the academically less
distinguished universities seem to have
had the desired effect on many high-
school students. Preliminary statistics
in Ontario indicate that university applications in the province are up by
about three per cent over last year.
That's good news for the universities, whose funding is largely tied to
enrolment. But taxpayers aren't likely
to be too pleased to learn that the cost
of the lavish recruitment drives by Ontario universities alone this year has
exceeded $1 million.
Moreover, the hard sell, lower admission standards, and greater entrance "scholarships" are not likely to
stave off a precipitous decline in
university enrolment for more than
two or three years at most. Sooner
rather than later, the halving of the
fertility rate for Canadian women,
which occurred during the 1960s, is
bound to have a drastic impact on the
universities. To be specific, Statistics
Canada projects that the 18-24 age
group in Canada is now levelling off
at about 3.4 million and will decline to
less than 2.7 million by 1994.
It is conceivable that university
enrolment could hold steady, if the
participation rate — that is, the proportion of the 18-24 age group attending university — increases sharply;
but that is not likely. In a report
released last December entitled
University Research in Jeopardy: The
Threat of Declining Enrolment, the
Science Council of Canada
acknowledged that "there is a great
deal of uncertainty in predicting participation rates".
"However," added the council,
"there is no doubt that the size of the
18-24 age group will decrease by about
20 per cent between 1982 and 1994.
Therefore, it would seem reasonable
to assume that full-time university
enrolment will decrease by at least this
amount over that period."
To drive home the enormity of this
trend, the council has noted that the
anticipated reduction in the number
of students attending university in 14
years is likely to approximate the present full-time enrolment at every
university west of Manitoba.
During   the   past   three   years,   a
modest decline in university enrolment has already begun in several sections of the country, but matters have
been made much worse for the universities by the failure of most provincial
governments to increase operating
grants by even as much as the pace of
inflation. When the public clamors
for spending restraint, it is relatively
easy for politicians to clobber universities, because the damages caused by
cutbacks in spending on higher education are difficult to compute and do
not show up for several years.
A related factor has been adoption
in 1977 of the federal established programs financing act, which changed
the rules of the game for conditional
grant programs in the fields of
medicare, hospitals, and post-
secondary education. The adverse impact on medicare has been well
documented; the consequences for the
universities in Ontario have been
hardly less severe.
Prior to 1977, each dollar allocated
by the provinces to university
operating grants was more or less matched by the federal government. Since
then, the federal government has
automatically increased its contribution to the provinces through a
transfer of tax points and grants tied
Putting tl
on edi
to growth in the gross national product, but the provinces have not
followed through with corresponding
increases to the universities. Indeed,
the total increase in university
operating grants by the Ontario
government last year was less than the
increase in the federal contribution
alone.
Such stinginess is deplorable, but
the hard truth is that not even the
most generous provincial governments
(with the exception of Alberta) can be
expected to increase operating grants
the Science Council is that only a
20-per-cent reduction in faculty just
enough to match the expected drop in
student enrolment — "could probably

sufficiently to eliminate the necessity
for universities to make drastic cutbacks in service and staffing in
response to declining enrolment.
Therein lies the essence of the crisis
for the university system in Canada.
During the 1960s and early 1970s, a
large number of young professors
were recruited into the then rapidly
growing universities. In 1977-78, only
17.9 per cent of faculty members were
over age 50. The implication drawn by
be    obtained    through    normal
attrition" during the next 14 years.
This, in turn, means that unless the
present faculty: student ratio is reduced or professors start leaving the
universities for reasons other than
normal attrition, there will be no
openings for new faculty members until about 1995. In the meantime, an
entire generation of young scholars
will be lost to the Canadian university
system  and  that,  says  the  Science
Council, "would cause almost irreparable damage to the universities."
Perhaps the most alarming aspect
of this crisis is that the universities are
helpless to deal with it. There is excessive university autonomy. Spending restraint is not centrally coordinated, but left up to each university acting alone. Within each institution, the administration is largely
beholden to the university senate,
which is dominated by faculty, and
the last place the faculty will lock for
budget cutbacks is in reduced teaching
posts and lower salaries. Instead, they
will first loot the libraries, plunder
scientific equipment, and allow
physical plant to deteriorate. The inevitable results will be poorer teaching
and worse research.
Compelling evidence to support this
alarming proposition is contained in
the latest report of the Ontario Council on University Affairs (OCUA), an
independent advisory body to the
Davis government. Since enrolment
peaked in Ontario in 1976-77, the
value of books and periodicals purchased by Ontario universities out of
operating income has declined by
more than 18 per cent. In the opinion
of  OCUA,   "the   decline   in   funds Thursday, September 18,1380

In the first place, provincial governments might fund early-retirement
programs for professors which would
make it possible for universities to hire
some talented young faculty members
in the years ahead. Another proposal
would be for the provincial governments to increase university funding
for books, periodicals, furniture, and
scientific equipment in the form of
conditional grants, which could not be
used to finance faculty salaries. But
these would only be partial solutions.
Saving the quality of the Canadian
university system requires not just
acrosss-the-board retrenchment, but
consolidation. In the words of the
Science Council, "In the interests of
available is now causing real difficulty
in the ability of universities to maintain adequate collections".
Between 1976-77 and 1977-78,
university expenditures out of
operating income for equipment and
furniture in Ontario increased only 5.4
per cent. Preliminary figures for the
following two years indicate that spending in this area actually declined.
Last fall, OCUA estimated that Ontario universities were spending out of
their operating funds just slightly
more than one-half of the $45 million
a year that is required to maintain
their existing inventories of equipment
and furniture.
What has happened to the number
of professors during these years? A
drop of professors during these years?
A drop did not occur until 1978-79,
when the number of faculty members
was somewhat less than 0.3 per cent
below the peak set in the previous
year. During those same two years,
enrolment in Ontario universities
dropped more than five per cent. (The
figures represent both full-time and
part-time faculty and enrolment,
measured in equivalent full-time
units.)
For one reason or another,   few
senior faculty members protected by
tenure have accepted salary restraint
as a means of saving jobs for junior
colleagues.  Contract settlements for
good scholarship, as well as economy,
inter-university transfers of faculty
members and facilities in specialized
areas should be undeftaken whenever
they are likely to fall below the critical
mass in a particular university, and
when the transfer could bolster a more
flourishing activity in another university.
"Today, such action may seem
drastic," admits the council, "but in
the long run a rational redistribution
of specialization among universities
may be the only way to avoid
mediocrity in many areas. Public
regard for the universities and the
preservation of their autonomy would
be greatly enhanced if the universities
would initiate such action
themselves."
This last observation is a pipe
dream. To cite just one example, there
are now seven schools of library
science affiliated with Canadian
universities. It is certain that all of
them cannot maintain their current
standards of teaching and research as
enrolment drops. But is it conceivable
that the University of British Columbia might agree to drop voluntarily its
library science program so that a
larger and better one can be maintain-

Ontario university professors last year
provided for income increases averaging close to eight per cent (six per cent
as a standard, plus another two per
cent for progress through the ranks).
In the words of the OCUA report, it is
now "extremely difficult for universities to offer teaching and research
careers to young people".
This, then, is the nature of the
universities' crisis. What should be
done about it?
ed at the University of Toronto (or
vice versa)? Not very likely.
Such interprovincial consolidation
could best be directed by an agency of
the federal government, but under
pressure of the provinces, Ottawa has
renounced all responsibility for j
university administration. No other '
industrialized country has a central
government with so little influence
over university affairs.
Of course, considerable consolida- j
tion among the several universities of
Ontario and Quebec could be directed
by their respective provincial governments. But this is not a task for politicians who, for obvious reasons,
should not have responsibility for
evaluating university departments.
Besides, both Ontario colleges and
universities minister Bette Stephenson
and her Quebec counterpart, Jacques-
Yvan Morin, have made clear that
they don't want to take the political
heat for ordering regional universities
to axe programs.
What both provinces need is an independent university council composed of laymen and academics exercising
executive authority in a manner
similar to the Canadian Radio-
television and Telecommunications
Commission. Creation of just such a
council was recommended in 1972 in
the prescient report of the Wright
Commission on Post-secondary
Education in Ontario. The chief purposes of this council, the commission
suggested, "should be, not the administering of the programs and
universities under its jurisdiction, but
the planning and co-ordination of an
orderly development of its sector of
post-secondary education in the
closest consultation with the universities and related voluntary associations."
A similar proposal for Quebec was
made in the May 1979 report of the
commission d'etude sur les universities
(Angers commision). So far neither
the Ontario nor Quebec governments
have acted on these recommendations. The longer they delay, the more
certain will be a serious decline in the
quality of their universities.
Nationally, there can be no hope of
sustaining, let alone improving, the
quality of the Canadian university
system unless the federal government
assumes responsibility for promoting
centres of excellence. Ideally, Canada
should have at least one outstanding
institution which could rival in
academic achievement the great
universities of the United States,
France, or Great Britain. But that's an
impossibility for Canada, because the
federal and provincial governments
could never agree on where that single
best university should be located.
Alternatively, an independent
grant-giving agency of the federal
government could identify and promote superior departments at universities across the country. For example,
the economics department at Western,
the political studies department at
Queen's, the commerce school at the
Universite de Montreal, and the
English department at the University
of British Columbia could all be
targeted for special federal development grants, which could be made
contingent upon hiring new young
faculty members.
For the federal and provincial
governments to do nothing to save the
universities would be disastrous.
OCUA has well stated that, "the
universities now stand at the brink of
a decline which threatens the continued existence of a quality university
system". That is true not just of Ontario, but of Canada as a whole.

('Bird droppings)
UBC's Thunderbirds soccer team
was all revved up with no place to
go Tuesday when the University of
Washington's squad failed to show
up for a slated exhibition game.
Thunderbird coach Joe Johnson
was upset that U of W went missing
in action as it robbed the team of
another chance to play against
quality non-league opponents.
Johnson said that because the collegiate soccer season is so short
(eight games), it is important to use
opportunities like the exhibition
game to reach mid-season form at
the beginning of the season.
Johnson said he had also wanted
to   use  the  game  to  make   final
evaluation of his players before
deciding who will go on the 'Birds
road games in the Prairies this
weekend. Currently the team has 24
players trying out but only 15 are
needed.
The 'Birds will play the University of Saskatchewan soccer club in
Saskatoon on Friday, followed by a
match with the current Canadian
Interuniversity Athletic Union
champions, the University of Edmonton.

Everybody look what's going down
Upon reading The Ubyssey Sept.
9 I developed a nostalgic yearning
for the old days. Boycotting and
protesting the Chilean military
regime type issues are clearly out of
vogue today;, rather Block Bros.-
mindedness is the new concern of
the student council.
It is a sad day when square
footage and fixed assets are on top
of the agenda, not qualitative issues
of justice, equality and effective
student representation.
However, barring my differing
priorities, two very real issues were
raised with respect to the developer
ambitions of the AMS executives.
First, on the issue of providing
more activity space. The issue is not
"what do we build with the $15 per
student levy" but rather, "should
we drop the fee? And if we don't,
then how can we best allocate these
monies to best satisfy the differing
students needs?"
No one has written in stone that
the money must go into new
buildings. Perhaps higher grants to
clubs and student societies so they
can provide improved services is a
better use of funds. Maybe even a
combination of the three alternatives: lower AMS fees, some new
activity area and more funds for
clubs and societies is the answer.
The point is that increased square
footage is a very poor criteria on
which to measure just how well you
are providing for student interest
and therefore should not determine
how the money is spent . . . unless
you're in the real estate business.
The second issue is almost
philosophical, but nevertheless important. Students despite their
noblest of intentions must understand their role vis-a-vis the university and provincial government when
it comes to student housing.
Students must not step in the funding area as this is clearly the concern
of the powers that be.
By providing or even considering
fundings sets an important precedent in that you are taking over the
government's responsibilities.
I'm not advocating that students
ignore the critical housing problem,
rather that we re-orient our
strategy. A more logical, consistent
and cost effect strategy would be
for the AMS to allocate time and
monies to mount a lobby campaign
aimed at:
BORED?
LONELY?
NO FRIENDS?

All concerned students and people representing campus clubs, societies and

to present briefs on the structure of a new committee on campus media to be formed
by the Alma Mater Society.

• City hall to revise its bylaw
and make suites in residential
houses legal. For $10,000-$ 15,000
and an organized appeal we could
overturn the bylaw and create hundreds of suites.
• The university council and the
provincial government to own up to
their duty of providing funds for
student housings.
• Vancouver residents on a con-
tinuous basis so that they realize
there is a demand for accommodation and that suites in their homes
are a viable investment.
In conclusion I can only lament
that the AMS can no longer
distinguish the forest from the hill,
and prefers building monuments to
addressing the issues. Construction
projects are a poor surrogate for effective representation.
