SUB site ok'd for
library data centre
By DOUG RUSHTON
The proposed library processing
centre's controversial site near
SUB received approval Wednesday
from an administration planning
and siteing committee.
And when committee chairman
Basil Stuart-Stubbs was contacted
after the meeting by The Ubyssey,
he said the paper is "the first voice
I've heard from the student side
since September."
Stubbs, who is also head
librarian, said he has received no
inputirom the Alma Mater Society
council. "I don't know what the
majority of council members
think," he said.
Stubbs made a presentation to
council more than a month ago
"and then I said goodbye."
"There has not been any action
through October," he said. "I can
only conjecture what they are
thinking."
AMS president Gordie
Blankstein appointed science rep
Ron Walls to the planning committee but Walls missed Wednesday's meeting, its first since
August, due to illness.
After hearing of the committee's
decision Wednesday night, council
voted to send a letter to the board
of governors saying that a 1967
agreement with the administration
forbids construction of the centre
on the site.
Blankstein told council the site
legally belongs to the AMS and the
society is prepared to take the case
to court.
However, Stubbs disputed
council's claims that the centre is
on SUB property. Stubbs said
blueprints show the centre's site is
close to, but not on, SUB property.
Stubbs also said another clause
that might apply to the site — that
the administration is forbidden to
build any building that may impair
pedestrian and vehicular access to
SUB — also does not apply.
"Students will have to walk an
extra five or 10 feet to go around
the centre," he said.
Stubbs said he has wanted to get
official student reaction to the
centre, which has been in the
planning stage for two years, but
"has to get on with it."
"I've got to think of the welfare
of the staff and the needs of the
library," he said.
Stubbs said if council now
launches a concerted effort to stop
the centre on the proposed site,
"they will leave me in a hopeless
position vis-a-vis what happens to
the staff and where we put books
after 1976."
"This is the only option," he said.
Construction cost estimates for
the centre have skyrocketed from
an original $900,000 to about $1.7
million, Stubbs said.
The committee's endorsation of
the site must now go to the board of
governors for final approval.
Stubbs said the committee had to
send its recommendation to the
board now in order to prevent
losing even more time.
"If we don't get approval now,
the project will be held up for
another two months," he said.
The board's decision is expected
later this month. If the committee's submission had not been
made now, Stubbs said it would
have had to wait until February
since the board does not meet in
January.
Self-help
housing gets
AMS support
By REED CLARKE
The self-help university housing
project received Alma Mater
Society council support Wednesday.
With the exception of internal
affairs officer Joan Mitchell,
council voted unanimously to
support the proposed spearhead
committee project.
The committee is applying for a
federal housing grant aimed at
producing projects for the 1976
United Nations conference on
human settlements, Habitat '76, to
be held at UBC.
Committee member Bruce
Fairbairn said the committee, a
sub-committee of the AMS housing
committee, had to get council
approval in order to make the
application for the government
grant and to win community
support for the project.
He said without council support
the project would have stood little
chance of succeeding.
Council also approved salaries
for spearhead committee mem-
See page 2: COUNCIL
"I've urged them (AMS council)
to take action ... to hurry up and
take it," Stubbs said. "My
responsibility is to get on with it."
Fortune teller
The first newspaper to come out with the results of Wednesday's
civic election was the Kerrisdale Courier.
It came off the presses at 9 p.m., only an hour after the polls closed,
declaring an Art Phillips victory.
The Courier, of course, was made up earlier in the day when its
staff had no concrete idea of how the election would turn out.
But for all that the paper's guesses weren't so far off the actual
election results:
Art Phillips did win, followed by NPA contender George Puil with
the NDP's Brian Campbell in third place.
The paper .gave no figures and said nothing of the aldermanic,
school board and park board elections, although it did mention that
three TEAM aldermen were not seeking re-election.
The only other piece of foresight on the civic elections the paper
contained was one paragraph: "In his victory address at the
Bayshore last night Phillips thanked his supporters and spoke of
what lay ahead."
As pledges of what Phillips promised to do now that he was
"elected," the paper ran TEAM campaign statements.
See page 8: COURIER

"FURTHERMORE, I promise a bar of baby's own soap for every bathroom in the city," articulate Art
Phillips tells rabid supporters in TEAM election headquarters Wednesday night. Phillips stepped out of pet
portable shower, "Squeaky," to briefly thank supporters for putting him and his pals back in office for
another two years. Captain Art then ducked back behind the shower curtain for more scrub-a-dub-dub. "See
you later, George," he said.
TEAM again with NPA opposition
By JAKE van der KAMP
and BERTON WOODWARD
Mayor Art Phillips and The
Electors Action Movement
returned to power in Wednesday's
civic elections but will face increased opposition from right-wing
aldermen on city council.
While TEAM swept the
mayoralty, parks board and school
board positions its strength on city
council dropped from eight
aldermen to five with the Nonpartisan Association picking up
four seats and Harry Rankin of the
Committee of Progressive Electors winning the remaining one
seat.
Elected to city council at
Ubyssey press time early today
were Phillips, TEAM aldermen
Michael Harcourt, Fritz Bowers,
Jack Volrich, Darlene Marzari and
Don Bellamy; NPA aldermen
Hugh Bird, Helen Boyce, Warnett
Kennedy and Ed Sweeney and
COPE's Rankin.
At 5 a.m. today the final standings in the civic mayoralty
elections, except proxy votes, were
an follows: Phillips, 37,270 (47 per
cent), Puil, 27.68B (35 per cent) and
Campbell, 11,354, about 18 per cent.
Mr. Peanut, the fringe candidate, had 2,685 votes, or about 3.3
per cent.
Mayor Art Phillips said the vote
represented a swing to the right, a
trend he said was seen in all
municipal elections this week.
But Phillips said he does not
think the result will mean a more
partisan voting on council.
"An awful lot of issues will not be
voted on a party basis," he said. "I
think you'll find it will depend on
the votes.
He noted that such TEAM
aldermen as Darlene Marzari and
Fritz Bowers have widely differing
views on many issues "so it will
depend on the issues."
Similarly, he said, NPA aldermen Hugh Bird and Ed Sweeney
have voted differently on issues
such as housing when they were on
council and will likely continue to
do so.
Phillips said the vote will have
some effect on issues like area
planning, supported by left-leaning

UBC prof elected to council
By BERTON WOODWARD
UBC profs didn't fare any better than anyone else
in Wednesday's civic election.
Only one of the four academics on the last council
will return for another two years of civic duty.
Electrical engineering prof Fritz Bowers was ranked
third in the aldermanic poll with 87 of 126 polls
reported.
Planner Setty Pendakur had little chance of a last-
minute aldermanic upset at the same count. He was
ranked thirteenth with nearly 2,000 votes separating
him and the tenth-ranked candidate.
Aid. Walter Hardwick, a geography prof, retired
from council at this election although he says he plans
to run for a seat on the Greater Vancouver Regional
District if the provincial government institutes direct
district elections.
Medicine prof Aid. Bill Gibson opted to run for
parks board this time around and was among the top
three candidates for the board in early returns.
Political science prof Paul Tennant, a new TEAM
academic candidate, went down to an expected

Tickle your job fancy at
UBC student services
By JOYCE JACKMANI
Have you ever considered'
fashioning whimsical intricacies
through the art of glass blowing?
Or perhaps you would prefer to
howl to your heart's content as a
barker for Gastown's Wax
Museum?
Openings for both these positions
are available through UBC's
student services office, but if
neither tickle your fancy, try the
library.
Although most positions at
UBC's library are currently filled,
"there is a continuing need for
part-time people at the library,"
Cameron Craik, placement officer
at student services office, said
Wednesday.
A wide variety of employment
possibilities was offered by the
library in September, with more
than 100 positions to be filled in
shelving, filing, working in the
stacks, turnstile, book bin, and
check-out counter.
One position at the library not
yet filled requires a student fluent
in Hindi and Punjabi to work in
cataloguing.
"Until a few years ago, stacking
jobs were open only to males, the
result of a Worker's Compensation
Board regulation wherein female
employees were not permitted to
carry an excess of 30 pounds," said
Randy Bowen, a clerk at the
placement office.
But as the need for stackers
increased and fewer males were
available, the library found it
necessary to hire females also and
the regulation was waived.
Student assistants at the library
are paid $2.50 per hour, the
minimum wage in B.C. Positions
are filled on a first come, first
serve basis.
But supplying student assistants
for the library is certainly not the
only function of the student services office.
There is a constant flow of
student traffic through the student
services office, sifting through and
photo-copying old exams.
Tapes of simulated interviews
are available to nervous students
who wish to increase their confidence and develop their skills in
the art of being interviewed.
Throughout the fall, Craik
speaks to students anticipating
graduation the same year, informing them of job opportunities.
He issues .bulletins that state
particular employers that will be
on campus to interview interested
students and the requirements
needed for positions offered.
During 1973-74 session, 220 interviewing teams were at UBC to
interview students.
"This year, we are going at a
pace of 25 per cent or higher than
last year," Craik said. "Each year
I send letters to 400 firms who have
previously listed jobs at the centre.
"This is a better year than last
year," he said. "There is no
shortage in areas of engineering,
commerce and forestry. The so-
called recession hasn't hit us yet in
this area.
"But there are still areaff where
students are not being interviewed
on campus, such as arts," he said.
Council approves salaries
From page 1
bers Charles Haynes,   project
designer, and Fairbairn.
Some council memberjs objected
to paying the two grad students
wages and contended-the pair are
essentially volunteers.
Housing committee member
Stefan Monchnacki said the two
are not volunteers.
Mochnacki said they are
professionals without whom the
project could not possibly proceed.
Fairbairn said the total of their
salaries would be refunded to
council if the government approves
the grant and agrees to finance the
project.
Mitchell said she abstained from
voting because she did not like the
use of University Endowment
Lands for a housing project.
Fairbairn said the housing
project is designed to fit in with the
environment and not to clash with
it as present housing projects do.
Fairbairn said the project would
not even require roads into the site.
"All the components can be
carried into the site along trails by
two people," he said.
Fairbairn said the project would
not require excavation.
He said the site the committee is
looking at is in an area which was
once bulldozed over and since has
grown over with alder.
Fairbairn said that whatever
small amount of damage was done
to the area would not be long in
repair.
He said the important thing now
is to get student input for the
project.
Fairbairn said the project is
intended to involve students both in
its design and construction.
He said they are actively seeking
any proposals for the project and
welcome technical and nontechnical suggestions on improvements.
Fairbairn said the committee
would like to see seminars set up
inside the different technical
faculties on campus in order to
produce proposals for the project.
Western Forest Products  is
interested in helping on some of the
research, he said.
Fairbairn said this could be a
real opportunity for students to be
involved in a project of this sort.
In other business, council
learned that B.C. Hydro intends to
put a bus loop where the parking
lot beside empire pool is located.
Traffic and parking committee
member Rick Murray told council
that Hydro has had this larger bus
loop in mind for a number of years.
He said Hydro is now complaining of a lack of space in the
present turnaround loopl
Murray also said Hydro plans to
put in a bus terminal complete with
covered area and washrooms as
part of the Habitat '76 conference.
Murray said that an agreement
between the AMS and the administration required the administration to maintain a
minimum of 650 parking spaces
near SUB.
He said that if the bus loop does
negate the pool parking lot, this
agreement may be violated.
Council agreed to ask a
representative from physical plant
to come to council and make a
presentation explaining exactly
what Hydro intends to do.
Arts rep Vaughn Palmer said
that it is time council and the
administration had a meeting to
air grievances over a number of
items.
Palmer said there are four points
of student aggravation which will
eventually end with the administration and council in court.
Palmer said the first is the
planned library processing unit,
the planned Hydro loop, SUB
maintenance, and the rising prices
in food services outlets.
He said it is clear any of the first
three items could end up with
council taking the administration
to court to resolve the issue.
Palmer said in each case it is
clear the administration has
transgressed an agreement made
with students.
"There is also a great need today
in the area of technical, general
and engineering sales," Craik said.
"Another popular category is
accounting," Craik said. There is a
great demand for students in the
commerce faculty, with interviews
being arranged with companies
such as MacMillan Bloedel and
B.C. Hydro, he added.
Summer job interviews are also
arranged for students who have not •
yet graduated but who will be
trained in a particular field and
offered a permanent position with
the employer upon graduation.
"The big push for summer jobs
comes after Christmas, but
registration for Christmas jobs
such as the Post Office is now in
full swing," Craik said.
Another service offered by the
placement office is a reading room
that contains literature about job
opportunities in certain fields.
Files are categorized according to
field and divided into temporary
and permanent.
Although the student services
office is a thriving operation, Craik
expressed hope that more students
would take advantage of the services offered to them.

Rale of university: pick one
By LESLEY KRUEGER
',- The university should place an
increased emphasis on vocational
training so students will be better
able to fill technical jobs on
graduation.
The university should direct
students through a liberal arts
program before they specialize so
they are later able to see their
specialty as a part of a world view.
The university should keep
churning out graduates through
the same process since, by golly,
they're doing just fine.
Those are the conclusions
reached by three speakers at the
Alumni Association student dinner
i Monday at Cecil Green Park.
i Glen Forrester of the B.C.
1 Research Council told the audience
of about 75 that universities should
place more emphasis on vocational
training, while dean of women
Margaret Fulton championed a
liberal arts education and Pan-
Arctic Oils vice-president Bob
Curry said they're doing just fine.
Forrester said he thinks
universities "aren't practical
enough."
"They do not provide the
education the employer wants or
needs or that which students
want," he said.
Forrester said he has been
working for four years on a study
for the research council during
which students', employers' and
academics' views on the purpose of
university education were surveyed.
He said that when asked what
they wanted from a post-secondary
education, 30 per cent of the
students   surveyed   said   they
wanted to learn the skills of their
chosen trade.
In answer to another question, he
said 30 per cent of students surveyed expect to find their greatest
fulfillment in their post-university
jobs.
These percentages were
repeated in interviews with faculty
members. He said 30 per cent of
community colleges staff said the
most important job of the colleges
was to teach job skills.
And of the cross-section of 285
employers surveyed, 40 per cent
said teaching skills was the most

made a "committment" to sing and preach in front of SUB an hour
each day for a week and a half even if God's providence didn't extend
to the weather.
AMS revamp to double executive
The Alma Mater Society council
executive would be almost doubled
to 13 members in a restructuring
proposal produced by the society's
constitutional revision committee.
The altered structure would see
current executive positions
dissolved and replaced by a
president and four vice-presidents,
with each VP having two
assistants.
The president and vice-
presidents would be elected by the
student body with the assistants
being elected by council.
Below the assistants would be all
of the current committees plus
some new ones. Each of the vice
presidents, their two assistants
and the committees responsible to
them constitutes a department.
The scheme, released Wednesday, calls for finance,
academic, communications and
services departments.
If   the   system   is   ever   im
plemented it will result in a council
composed of 13 executives and 25
councillors as opposed to the
current structure of seven
executives and 38 councillors.
On top of this massive structure
rests the president who, according
to Robbie Smith, committee
chairman and current AMS vice-
president, "would coordinate
everything as he does now."
"If anything goes wrong you go
to the president and he gets after a
vice-president to get some action,"
Smith said.
He did not add that the vice-
president would then get after the
assistant who would then get after
the head of a committee who would
then get after the committee.
Committee member Dave
Theessen said the big policy input
would come from council since
there would be eight assistants to
only five executives.

important   function   of   post-
secondary institutions.
Forrester said businessmen
surveyed said 43 per cent of
graduates applying for jobs had an
inadequate knowledge of
necessary skills while 31 per cent
were unable to communicate
orally or in writing.
"This convinces me the
university is not properly training
its graduates," he said.
Forrester did not account for the
70 per cent of students who didn't
put vocational training at the top of
their priority list. Nor did he offer a
breakdown of the 30 per cent who
did so, detailing whether they were
already in applied faculties or the
arts.
Forrester also didn't explain
why he thinks the university should
train graduates to meet
businessmen's needs as opposed to
those of the society.
But dean of women Margaret
Fulton said she thinks the increasing emphasis placed on
vocational training in post-
secondary institutions is
"destructive."
"I am going to speak against
excessive     utilitarianism     in
education, because in this I hear a
call for more robot-trained men

Plan soon
for trips
to Europe
Students thinking of chucking it
all and heading for Europe better
do so quickly — oil company rip-
offs and declining airline profits
are getting prices ready for a
major hike.
The price of a Montreal-London
return ticket is expected to jump to
$600 from $283. Students will also
be paying the same price as
regular travellers soon since
airlines are dropping the student
fate schedule.
The best way to save is to buy
your return ticket now and take off
— that way you will be able to
leave the rain now and avoid the
price hike on your return ticket.
Return tickets are good for a year.
If the air fares leave a foul taste
in your knapsack, you might want
to consider taking to the sea. This
slow but relaxing method of travel
(not only do ships have bars, they
also have beds to sober up in) is
now on its way back.
Boat trips to Europe start as low
as $190.

"Hello football fans and welcome to
another CFL broadcast dead from Empire
Stadium.
"Today, of course, is the big one, if you'll
pardon the expression, and as we approach
the Grey Cup the tension is mounting in
Vancouver. It's not the only thing that's
mounting as I can see by a quick glance
around our press box before beginning this
coast-to-coast broadcast from B.C. to
Manitoba.
"I'm Pit Marsbar here with child star and
token blonde Wally Gabler, who played
falsetto in the CFL a few years ago, to bring
you the excitement of this meeting between
the Edmonton Ukrainians and the Menthol
Alouettes.
"The meeting is taking place in the board
room and ex-lineman Frank Pigmy — who
is too big for us to refuse him a job — is there
to talk with Edmonton head coach Ray
Jock."
"This is Frank Pygmy in the board room
and amid all this lumber Ray Jock is talking
to Menthol head coach Marv Hevy. Ray,
what's the purpose of this meeting?"
"Well, Marv and I would like to work out
who gets the Grey Cup without resorting to
the use of the playing field. After all, we're
both mature adults who get paid a lot of
money for participating in a children's
game.
"We want to prevent the fans from being
exposed to needless bloodshed. Besides, our
whole team's drunk already."
"What's your position exactly, Ray?"
"Head coach, dummy."
"No, I mean what do you want to do?"
"I think we should get the Cup now 'cause
everybody knows we're going to win anyway
and besides we just bought some new
uniforms. I don't think it's fair that we have
to get them dirty in the last game of the
year."
"That wasn't very funny, Ray."
"I know, but I'm not writing this column."
"Anyway, you're playing on artificial
turf."
"Do you know how hard the average
mother has to work to get rid of plastic
stains with today's detergents?"
"What about you, Marv?"
"I think watching us play ourselves would
be more entertaining than allowing a bunch
of Ukrainians on the field. Everybody knows
they're so stupid they think a football coach
has wheels."
"Back to you, Pit."
"Thanks, Frank. Vancouver's having its
first blizzard since the Age of the Dinosaurs,
the San Andreas Fault just reached
Hastings Street and the Washington State
National Guard are shelling Empire
Stadium — just a perfect afternoon for
football. Right, Wally?"
"That's right, Pat."
"Who're some of the people we should be
looking for today, Wally?"
"Most of all I think we should be looking
for Crush McBraggins, a 500-pound
linebacker who said he'd squeeze us into a
football when we didn't vote for him in the
Schenley Awards.
' 'We're now ready for the ceremonial kick
off with CFL commissioner Jake Godar and
the Godettes and the Prime Minister of
Canada,Pierre Eliot Two Toes. Two Toes is
an excellent place kicker despite the handicap of having been born without shoes."
"Two Toes blasts the ball and ... my God
. .. it's going out of Empire Stadium and . . .
and . . . it's clearing Burrard Inlet!
"It looks as though Ray Jock has decided
to play after all, he just brought Two Toes
down with a flying tackle and is wrestling
him into a Ukrainian uniform."
"That cabbage roll looks a little uncomfortable, Pat."
"They just tossed the coin, Wally, which
was a little hard on the referee since fhey
didn't take it out of his pocket first.
"The Ukrainians won the toss of the coin
and they're running jubilantly off the field.
Frank Pigmy, what's going on down there?"
"Well, Pit, the Ukrainians seem to be
under the impression they've won this
game. Of course, Menthol has gone out on
the field and is scoring points like crazy. It
looks as though they're going to take a 400-0
score into the dressing room at half-time,
no, it won't fit through their door."
"We now pause for station identification
and a few thousand words from our sponsor
the Encyclopedia Britannia. We'll return
with the second half in just 24 hours." Pag* 4

Civic blues
We'd like to say a word about the
enumeration system this year for the
civic election. The word: discriminatory.
Under the system, last election's
voters' list is not carried over. Last
summer voters had to be enumerated
at their doors or go to city hall and
sign up.
Proponents claim a wide media
campaign   let   citizens   know  their
responsibilities.   That's   where   the1
discrimination comes in.
It may surprise city hall, and the
provincial government which refused
during the current session to rectify
the situation for urban areas, to
know that some people don't follow
the media as closely as do politicians
looking for their names.
This is not to mention those who
spend their summer holidays out of
the city, like working students.
The discrimination is not against a
specific identifiable group. It's simply against people who take the view
that their civic responsibility is
discharged when they vote every two
years. The rest is up to those they
elect.
Whatever position one takes of
this level of involvement, there are
such obvious and simple remedies
available to get these people enfranchised that it is beyond us to fathom
why this ultimately elitist system is
allowed to cloud up the electoral
process.

depression
I don't know if it serves any
worthwhile purpose to talk about
depression.
I don't know if any other students
ever experience that moment of
terror when the subjects which
once seemed the centre of the
universe all become empty,
meaningless and dull. If you feel
this way, you are not alone.
In this past week I have
discovered two items of interest.
First, psychiatric counselling on
this campus is free and the atmosphere in which it is conducted
is hassle-free.
You might feel intimidated in
having to visit him in the first
place, but that intimidation is
probably a great deal less than that
of having a nervous breakdown.
Second, I have discovered that
the professors who have seemed to
be monsters have turned out to be
more than understanding of my
situation and have given me extensions on my work.
If you need an extension, don't be
stupid — go and ask for it.
Maybe you are luckier than me
and don't need psychiatric help —
there are lots of qualified people
around campus you can talk to.
Don't ignore the chance.
We all want to do well in
university. That's what we're here
for. I just want anybody who is not
finding the 100 per cent nirvanic
state that they anticipated to know
they are not alone. Maybe if we are
lucky we can keep trying and pull
through.
And maybe, if we are exceptionally lucky, it will all seem
as though it is worthwhile.

Not'that we mean to play Ann

into one, but the reason your
courses probably seemed "empty,

are just that. And your reaction to
them is a justified frustration to a
great deal of bullshit we all have to
go through out there.
So rather than learning to live
philosophically with a situation
that frankly makes you depressed,
why not eradicate the root cause of
the depression- [which probably
isn't an early weaning] and do
something to change those horrible
courses?
Join your course union or undergraduate society and demand
that these organizations prepare
course evaluations so other people
won't innocently wander into the
classes which gave you such a bad
time.
Or get yourself elected to the
department   curriculum    com
mittees and start agitating for
course changes.
Or best yet, come on and join The
Ubyssey, a forum for criticism and
discussion of alternatives at the
university.
You may be "well adjusted" now
to a bad situation — but who wants
that kind of adjustment? Just
remember, other people will have
to face the same hassles as you did
and the way to help them is not
through offering sympathy. It's
through demanding change—Staff.

An open letter to the clever
person who stole my carburetor
and air filter assembly:
Remember that carburetor you
ripped out of my blue Austin Mini
station wagon in B-lot last week?
Well, maybe you needed a carburetor, but I need it too! I can't
afford to buy a new carb any more
than you can. So I'll make a deal.
If you put the carb (and air
filter) back in my car within 48
hours, that will be the end of it.
Otherwise, I'll go looking in
every Austin I see. (Don't worry, I
can identify it — when a car falls
apart as often as mine does, you
get to know its parts very well.)
When I find it, you'll be hearing
from,me — and the RCMP.

Gordon Blankstein
AMS president
Blankmind
Last Friday's caption in The
Ubyssey — "Blankstein butt of
media laugh" — began another in a
series of blunders by our famous-
infamous Alma Mater Society
prez. It's cruel to see a man dig his
own grave.
I, for one, found it curious how
anyone was able to display such
consistency in embarrassing
statements. So, after much
deliberation, I feel that I have the
solution to Gordie Blankstein's
dilemma — you see, Gordie suffers
from hoof-and-mouth disease. It
seems that every time he tries to
say something intelligent, he ends
up worse than ever before.
Actually, hoof-and-mouth
disease is not so bad if you're
aware that you do have it.
But, you see, that brings up
another thing — Gordie also has
flies in his eyes.
How can any self-respecting
individual expect Gordie to see
that he has hoof-and-mouth disease
when he's walking around with
flies in his eyes?
But the strange part about the
flies is that he doesn't know they're
there. That's why he can't see
things as they really are.
"How come?", you might well
ask.
"Because he's got flies in his
eyes, silly. How can he see that
he's got f lies in his eyes, if he's got
flies in his eyes?"
It's all very confusing, but,
perhaps if we can get someone to
tell him that he's got flies in his
eyes . . . that might work. ... On
second thought, maybe not. ... If
you've spoken to Gordie lately,
you'll know that he also has a
banana in each ear.
And you can bet that you won't
hear anyone if you have a banana
in your ear.
I tried to tell Gordie about all this
once . . . about how ridiculous he
looked walking around with flies in
his eyes, a banana in each ear, and
his hoof in his mouth.
And Gordie, with the astute
beaming of a prophet, replied —
"Six months ago I was elected
president and I didn't have a nickel
—now I have a nickel! Last night I
shot an elephant in my pyjamas —
can't imagine how it got into my
pyjamas!"
But that's another story.

C 'mon guys
Never did I think I'd have to take
this stand, but honestly, your
editorial of Friday, Nov. 11 about
(Alma Mater Society president)
Gordon Blankstein was a bit much.
There is such a thing as "overkill."
The facts of the B. B. King affair
speak for themselves. There is no
need for all sorts of personalities to
embellish the story.
If you want to maintain the
credibility of your paper, please,
please, don't resort to trivial
personal insults.
If the serious discussion which
you so strongly advocate is to
flourish on this campus, then both
sides of the story must be
rationally presented.
I am thoroughly opposed to just
about everything Blankstein's
students' coalition stands for, but I
must urge fair treatment of each
side without counter-productive
personal attacks which only turn
people off.

Why then, on Friday evening

he, Hindmarch, not pull his team

Why did he allow the very

already suffering from a painful

In last Thursday's issue of The

opportunity to work in some
preliminary campaigning.
Student representation on the
board of governors is of primary
importance on campus, and any
means of generating interest in
beneficial to the upcoming election.
However, the problem arises
with the undemocratic presentation of only six, of the nine
candidates views on varied
campus issues.
I am sure that King, Gojevick,
and Johnson would be more than
willing to submit themselves to an
interview, in which they could
express their views upon issues
which they believe to be pertinent
to the university.
If The Ubyssey would make a
more concerted effort and use
sounder judgment in the presentation of campus politics, such
problems of unjust coverage would
not occur.
I feel the Ubyssey's only
recourse to right this injustice is to
conduct and print an interview

Workers9 history
I was delighted to read in your issue of
Nov. 15 the reviews of four recent
publications in "worker history." Canadian
labor history needs all the publicity it can
get.
Kim Pollock's reproof that the authors of
On Strike: Six Key Labour Struggles 1919-
1949 neglect the activities of the rank and
file strikers and the role played by their
radical leaders hits the mark. Your
reviewer is mistaken however when he
tentatively asserts that S. D. Hanson's
treatment of the violent miners' strike in
Saskatchewan in 1931 is the exception.
Stan Hanson did a great deal of research
on the strike, but his sources — sensational
newspaper reports and the testimony of
participants who were anxious to avoid
responsibility for the tragic events — did not
tell the whole story.
Sure, the miners had grievances. But if
substandard living conditions alone
generated working class unrest, Canadian
historians would have a generous supply of
Estevan riots to study.
In fact, the bewildered miners in the
Estevan district were led from beginning to
end by a bizarre collection of organizers
from the Workers Unity League, a tiny
federation of left-wing unions directed by
Canadian communist leader Tom Ewen,
which had been organized the previous year
on instructions from Moscow. The Communist International intended the League to
lead Canadian workers into violent
struggles in order to prepare them for
impending world revolution in this the
"third period of capitalist collapse."
To set the record straight:
1. WUL organizer Joe Fortin, the ranking
member of the Communist Party of Canada
I on the strike committee, was opposed to
violence, but he was unable to control
"Wobbly" Sam Scarlett and a carload of
excited young Communist party recruits
who drove in from Winnipeg intending to
help the miners in the "struggle" against
the "mine barons."
2. Sam Scarlett and the Winnipeg
militants organized a secret "workers self-
defence corps" among the most radical
miners. The corps cached stones and three-
inch iron bolt washers in Estevan the night
before the parade, and went into town the
next day armed with short clubs under their
coats.
3. The RCMP were aware that "communist agitators" were in the district, but
suspected that the leader of the mine
owners' association, a New York City
executive who refused to sit at the
bargaining table with "reds," was encouraging the strike in order to cover
financial losses in his Canadian-government
subsidized coal briquetting plant. Fearing
adverse publicity, RCMP officers ordered
their men to avoid a confrontation with the
miners at all costs.
4. The parade "to drum up support in
Estevan" was intended by Scarlett and the
members of the workers self-defence corps
to be a diversion for an attack on a nearby
American-owned strip mine that had continued working during the strike (its employees were mostly U.S. citizens who
declined to join the "red" union) and
threatened to run the deep-seam Canadian-
owned mines out of business. The militants
planned to sabotage the strip mine's big
electric power shovel.
5. The imported Unity League organizers
did not tell the miners that the parade to
Estevan had been banned by the town
council that morning because they feared
that their plan, a desperate gamble to revive
flagging strike militancy, would be ruined.
Most of the miners were also unaware of the
commando raid on the Truax-Traer mine.
6. A garbled version of the total plan was
disclosed to the RCMP a few hours before
the parade was scheduled to begin. Inspector Moorehead therefore deployed most
of his men to guard the mine. Fifteen RCMP
constables under the direction of the local
police chief were left in Estevan to turn back
the miners' motorcade in the event that it
reached the town. The police did not really
anticipate trouble. On two previous occasions the miners had dispersed quietly
when requested to do so by two or three
officers.
7. The miners were not "greeted" by
contemptuous police and firemen. Attempting to direct the motorcade out of
town, the unsuspecting officers were confronted by 500 annoyed miners who didn't
know that the parade and the strike meeting
to follow it had been banned.
Sam Scarlett scurried to the Princess Cafe
and nervously ordered a cup of coffee as the
workers self-defence corps closed on the
police line from the rear.
Minutes later the officers were retreating
up the street in a murderous shower of
stones and iron bolt washers and three
miners lay dying on Estevan's main street.
The RCMP and the "capitalist" press
subsequently blamed "communist
agitators" for the tragedy.
The communist press blamed bloodsucking coal barons and their fascist police
henchmen for the massacre of innocent
miners.
Whom shall the historian blame?
No one. The players in the Estevan street
theatre^ were all sincere men and women
conditioned to view one another with
varying degrees of enmity. Given their
disparate environments, given the complex
interaction of personality and unfolding
events, they could not have acted otherwise.
It's true that working class history has
long been ignored by respectable Canadian
historians. Who's interested in Tom Ewen,
Sam Scarlett, Jimmie Sloan, Annie Buller,
Isadore Minster?
They didn't attend the Imperial Economic
Conference.
They weren't renegades in R. B. Bennett's
Conservative cabinet.
You won't meet them in Hansard.
Why, they weren't even members of the
CCF!
In any case, as Stan Hanson and his editor
Irving Abella will tell you, the raw material
for labor history is not all neatly indexed in
the air conditioned National Archives in
Ottawa. Didn't you ever wonder why we
write all that mainstream political history?

aldermen like Harcourt, Marzari,
and Rankin, because of the new
right-wing members.
But he said programs like False
Creek redevelopment will not be,
affected because although the NPA
paid lip service to making False
Creek a park," I don't think they,
had their hearts in that issue."    |
Phillips said False Creek and
other major TEAM programs will
be carried through because
planning for them is well;
established.
Commenting on his own personal
chances in the election Phillips told
a large crowd of TEAM supporters
at the Bayshore Inn that at supper
he broke open a fortune cookie
which   told   him,   "Many   have1
examined your ideas today."
Meanwhile in NPA headquarters, NPA mayoralty candidate
George Puil conceded the election
to Phillips and congratulated
Phillips on his campaign.
Puil, who had sought the NPA
nomination during the last election, kept personal feelings on his
defeat to himself. 1
NDP mayoralty candidate Brian
Campbell said he is disappointed in
the election results which put him
in third place for mayor, far behind
Puil.
Campbell said the NDP will have ■
a chance in civic elections only if
the city adopts the ward system
which would see aldermen elected
from different districts.
He said a party conference in
February will determine the
NDP's future moves in civic
politics.
Last in the mayoralty election is
Mr. Peanut — Vincent Trasov.
Trasov, who presented an
"artistic" view of city government
through his peanut costume,
convinced 2,300 electors to vote for
him.
A spokesman for Trasov said his
candidacy helped to enlighten
Phillips.
"We've accomplished a great
deal," he said. "We've transferred
something very boring to
something that has a lot of life in it.
It's victory in terms of art. We've
enlightened Mayor Phillips to the
point where next year he'll be
considering esthetic features."
Supporters of Mr. Peanut interrupted a Channel 8 television
broadcast of the election results
with a dance featuring Mr. Peanut
and forced the station to broadcast
commercials until they had left.
For  the  school   board   voters
decisively rejected the Genuine
Education Movement which
stressed the three R's they voted
instead for a TEAM board more
favorable to educational changes.

Westlake, who sponsored GEM, a

his seat on the board which he
gained as a TEAM candidate in

and women continuing to maintain
a large societal machine," she
said.
"Since the first Sputnik went up,
the universities have increasingly
become vocational training
schools. This means we do not live
in communities of human beings,
but in a modern, mass, secular
society."
She said technicological advances pioneered by specialists
will "destroy the whole natural
world."
"We just have a world of experts
— men hired to do only what
they're trained to do," Fulton said.
"And specialists have indeed
created an absurd world.
"The capitalist countries of the
world pretend to support a world of
free enterprise yet they create a
world of monopoly control."
She said this comes because no
connection is created between
specialized fields of knowledge.
"The medical schools train
graduates to save lives while other
specialists warn of overpopulation
in the world," she said.
"Agriculture schools graduate
students skilled in knowledge of
ways to speed production. They
know how to make cows bear
double the number of calves while
other specialists learn how to increase production.
"Yet farmers kill their calves
and eggs rot."
She said specialized knowledge
has created a world where "one-
third of the people have no choice
but to starve, one-third are in the
balance and another one-third are
killing themselves with gluttony."
"We have in the latter days of the i
20th century created a world:
full of knowledge yet with little or;
no wisdom," she said. j
So Fulton proposed universities
require people heading for
specialized degrees to first study
general arts and sciences.
"We must train generalists
before specialists."
Bob Curry of Pan-Arctic Oil says
the university should continue
producing graduates of the same
calibre as they have all along.
Saying he received a general BA
from UBC but got most of his experience in "the school of hard
knocks," Curry said there is a
"great and crying need to teach
people common sense."
He said he finds in job recruitment at Pan-Arctic Oils that UBC
graduates are generally capable of
doing the jobs they seek.
But he said not enough are
seeking jobs, with about 40,000 job
vacancies in Alberta.
He blames this situation on the
welfare state, saying, "when
today's graduate steps forward
into the business world, if he
bombs out he can be reasonably
sure someone will bail him out."
"Whatever mistakes we make,
community organizations, unions
and departments in the government help us forget them.
"What incentive is that to grow
up?"
He advocated an individualized
attitude to life — although he said
he is against "the violent maverick
approach."
"Hopefully this year's graduates
will step out boldly, ready to stand
tall and with some courage,"
Curry said.
"Hopefully they're the type
who'll say, "Come on let's have a
go at it.'
"They're the ones to make this
world more pleasantly habitable
thanks to a responsible sense of
adventure."
From page 3
Committee member Stefan
Mochnacki proposed limiting the
president's control over council
meetings by appointing a non-
political chairperson to oversee the
meetings.
Mochnacki said the president is
too closely involved with council
policy to be chairing the meetings
as he does now.
Theessen suggested that the
committee consider changing the
date of the council budget
presentation.
He said the incoming executives
are elected in February and this
gives them until their first council
meeting in March to draw up a
budget and decide on policy for the
next year.
Theessen said if the budget is
passed by council in March, expenditures would be easier to
control since committees would
know how much they had been
allocated.
He said the present system
leaves committees operating
during the summer completely
unaware of how much money they
will be allowed to spend.
The constitutional revision
committee will meet again at noon
Friday to work out more details on
their proposal.

'Marriage bliss a falsehood'
By DENISE CHONG
The television soap opera version of the loving wife — dutiful by
night but adulterous by day — gave
viewers the Dr. Jekyll and Mr.
Hyde image of the North American
married woman.
Although both these roles over
overstatements, says pyschiatrist
and UBC prof Richard Stuart,
marriage as "the American bliss
machine" is a promise that can't
be kept.
In a recent interview, Stuart,
from the UBC health science
centre for pre-marital and marital
counselling, explained why four
out of every 10 marriages end in
divorce with the first two years.
"Courtship and dating is a
buying and selling game," Stuart
says. "And in the zeal to sell
yourself to the other person, some
of the deception that goes on just
doesn't bear up well in a
marriage.
"It's a realistic but simple way
of putting your best foot forward,
but it implies overexuberant
promises that-will not be honored
over time."
Stuart says studies show such
behavior all but disappears within
three months of marriage,
regardless of whether couples live
together before marriage or not.
It isn't that people are not open
or frank enough in their
relationships with others—in fact
dishonesty can be an asset, Stuart
says.
"The concept of honesty is antisocial and contrary to the whole
social process.
"Any relationship that lasts
relies on 'measured honesty' or an
acceptance as reality that people
use this 'measured honesty' during
courtship."
Couples with a higher level of
integrity in their "bargaining"
during courtship have more lasting
relationships, Stuart says.
The centre provides a service
described as one to help not only
pre-marital couples "increase
their prospects for successful
marriage", but married couples
who would like to "enhance their
marriage" or "evaluate their
commitment to remain married."
Which implies that after the
marriage license is signed, the
transition from unmarried isn't
necessarily a smooth one. Why
not?
"It's difficult to understand what
happens right in between," Stuart
says "People can't really understand how a relationship can
undergo such dramatic change."
"Marriage makes a relationship
more difficult to terminate. There
are now legal barriers, which
means if it's hard to get out of, one
or both will tend to be more
demanding on the other.
"But it also has an advantage
since they may be more ambitious
in conflict resolution."
However,.marriage under stress
is not uncommon as many remain
unhappily married due to
ignorance, fear or necessity, while
40 per cent of all marriages end in
divorce, a rate unnecessarily high
according to Stuart.
Divorce can be a constructive
step though, he says, including
those marriages which are 10 and
15 years old, and marriages made
in culturally different times, often
by necessity rather than by choice.
As it is currently organized
however, marriage tends to work
better for men than for women,
judging by the fact 85 per cent of all
requests received by the centre
originate from women, Stuart
says.
"Success in a marriage is a
complicated achievement,
especially for the now-working
woman, he says.
"She is in a position of being
socially bankrupt, asking for
something but with nothing to offer
in exchange."
The centre encourages and helps
the non-working woman to return
to work or school, but whether or
not she actually does hinges on
marriage and family conditions,
including the number of children,
the career stages of both husband
and wife and the level and
availability of resources, Stuart
says.
"For example, if the child is
sick, what happens? Does she miss
her biology exam or does he miss
his court case? Legitimate and
heart-rending conflicts will arise."
Stuart says those married
couples seeking help from the UBC
clinics have experienced moderate
to severe conflict, whether it be
over time, commitment or the
division of labor in the household.
Unsuccessful at resolving the
conflict, they now feel overwhelmed by it, he says. Other
couples are simply disengaged,
while still living in the same house
or sleeping in the same bed, he
says.
Most of those seeking help come
to the clinic on their own initiative
Waffler Laxer says "no way"
to avoid economic depression
SASKATOON (CUP) — Waffle
political economist James Laxer
joined the league of those
predicting a new depression
recently, saying there is "no way"
a collapse" can be avoided.
Laxer, a political economy
professor at York University in
Toronto, says the most notable
indication of what is to come is the
huge inventories of raw materials
presently being stockpiled by all
industries in response to the skyrocketing prices of materials.
At some point in each industry a
"glut level" will be reached, after
which no more supplies will be
purchased. This will shut down the
industries supplying material.
Gays beaten
in Manitoba
WINNIPEG (CUP) — Gay Pride
Week ended in violence Saturday
when organizers of the evening
social were attacked outside the
University of Manitoba student
centre.
The organizers were leaving the
building after the social when they
were assaulted by eight to 10 men.
Two University of Manitoba
students' union night managers
heard the ruckus and tried to intervene but were unsuccessful in
stopping the fight.
After several minutes of fighting
the night managers and a student
union official, Bob Harrison, who
had walked into the fray, locked
the attackers out of the building
and they dispersed.
The organizers of the social,
Gays For Equality, are now
seeking the identity of the attackers and intend to press
charges if their names can be
found.
This crisis of over-production is
spreading, said Laxer, from the
United States to the rest of the
world. Canada will face special
hardships, he said.
In the limping auto industry the
cutbacks have hit Canada first and
with greater force than in the U.S.,
he said. Laxer predicted the deficit
in the Canadian auto industry will
rise to $1 billion in 1974 from $250
million last year.
We will see massive layoffs of
Canadian autoworkers before
Christmas, he told a University of
Saskatchewan audience.
The overall deficit in
manufacturing will be $9 billion, up
from $3.4 billion last year.
This shrinkage in Canada's
manufacturing capacity is part of
the process, of rationalizing
Canada as a hinterland, Laxer
charged. The trade balance with
Canada is "important" in
American economic thinking, he
said.
The growing economic crisis has
its roots in a conflict between U.S.
capitalists and those in Europe and
Japan, he said. The dominance of
U.S. imperialism began to end in
I960 as the economies of Japan and
the European Economic Community started to demand their
own place in the world.
American policy to thwart this
trend began in 1970, Laxer
maintained.
The recently-inflated oil prices
are the result of a three-sided
combination of this new American
foreign policy along with the interests of the seven largest oil
companies and the Arab states, he
said.
The oil companies until recently
had faced the problems of over-
supply and toq much competition.
The "energy crisis" is a snow job,
Laxer charged, because the
companies spend more money on
advertising than they do on
developing new production. Their
profits have soared and competition is being squeezed out.
Prof in hot water
CALGARY (CUP) — University of Calgary students are petitioning to
remove a geography instructor in protest over the structure of one of his
courses.
The petition was circulated after a Nov. 6 meeting between geography
students and Dr. Louis Hamill failed to resolve conflict over an
examination.
The petition calls for Hamill's dismissal and a restructuring of the
geography 321 course which he has been teaching.
Students have complained that the course's mid-term test did not deal
adequately with concepts and instead concentrated far too much on
specific facts taken from the course readings.
Complaints were also made about Hamill's insistence on written
submissions from any students who wished to question the form and
content of the exam.
In the absence of a geography course union, the class members
themselves have taken on the task of circulating the petition.
They have been aided by the U of C students' union which has acted as
an intermediary between students and Hamill.
The union also maintains a file of all grievances lodged against instructors at the U of C.

defeat, ranking eighteenth in the
aldermanic   poll   at   the   87-poll
count
Political science prof Paul
Tennant, a new TEAM academic
candidate, went down to an expected defeat, ranking eighteenth
in the aldermanic-poll at the 87-poll
count.
English instructor Hilda
Thomas, running for the NDP, did
not even figure in the top 20
aldermanic rankings.
English prof Elliott Gose, elected
two years ago as a TEAM school
board candidate, appeared
assured of renewed victory along
with most or all of his TEAM
running mates.
English prof Anthony Lavin and
math prof Nathan Divinsky, both
first-time candidates for the NPA's
new school board spin-off, the
Genuine Education Movement,
were ploughed under by the TEAM
school board sweep.
Mayor Art Phillips, asked if he
thought a racial backlash had
anything to do with the defeat of
Pendakur, an East Indian, said it
was possible but difficult to
measure.
"But I know from comments
made to me that Setty's prickly,"
Phillips said. "He's offended some
people — there are others who like
him."
TENNANT
. a loser.
Earlier in the evening Pendakur
discounted any thought of racial
bias affecting his candidacy.
Though low in rank at that point,
Pendakur was hoping west side
polls would bring him back to the
top 10. He was not available for
comment later.
One top TEAM analyst said he
believed Pendakur's poor showing
was a direct result of his cultural
background along with his scrappy
nature.
Other observers pointed out that
Pendakur's background was little
known when he was elected in 1972.
He ranked tenth in that election.
Tennant said he decided to enter
the aldermanic race for TEAM on
the basis of spending little money
on his campaigning. He agreed he
faced a difficult challenge in being
on* of the unknown TEAM candidates in a field of well-known
names.
The TEAM analyst told The
Ubyssey Tennant and another
little-known TEAM aldermanic
candidate, Marguerite Ford, were
considered TEAM'S "throw-away
candidates."
Tennant said he followed the
TEAM platform in his campaign
appearances and did not single out
one or two issues with which to
identify himself.
He said if he had had the chance
he would have emphasized hospital
construction, particularly for
senior citizens and opposition to
expansion of Vancouver International Airport.
"In the next five years airport
expansion is going to be THE big
issue," he said:
Bowers downplayed the role of
academics on city council. He said
that historically Vancouver has
been run by lawyers, developers,
retired people and housewives, all
with time to spend the 25 hours a
week or more needed for council
business.
TEAM'js heavily academic
council was "unique in Canada,"
he said.
He said he has consulted with his
department head and president-
designate Doug Kenny about
serving on council. They took the
view that university people must
get involved in community affairs,
he said, despite the fact that "there
is no argument at all that being on
council interferes with being a
good prof."
"Academics are reasonably easy
to elect," he said. The problem
comes with the time demands, the
reason Hardwick gave for
declining another term on council,
he said.
The situation for Hardwick, who
topped the polls last election, was
"not a case of the voters rejecting
academics but the academic
rejecting the voters, so to speak,"
Bowers said.
But Bowers said he believed
academics' policies are not the
product of their profession but
simply "rational policies."
Phillips said he thought Hardwick and Pendakur will still
provide strong informal input into
TEAM policies.
"They have been major contributors in launching a lot of
things — we will be following
through on these kinds of things,"
he said.
Student vote
If students voting on campus had
decided the school board race in
Wednesday's civic election, TEAM
would have swept the board.
Of the 4,062 voters eligible on
campus, almost all residence
students, only 124 voted at a polling
station in SUB. The poll excludes
Endowment Lands houses.
The Vancouver school district
extends to the UBC peninsula,
making the eight-seat school board
race the only one UBC residents
were eligible to vote in.
TEAM candidate Jack Say Yee
topped the UBC poll with 58 votes,
closely followed by UBC English
prof Elliot Gose for Team at 57.
TEAM incumbent Katharine
Mirhady also brought in 57 votes.
Next were TEAM'S Margaret
Andrew and Marjorie Courvoisier,
each with 53 votes. Lorena Baran,
another TEAM candidate, culled 50
votes.
Last of the students' TEAM
favorites were David Pratt and
Pam Glass, each with 48 votes.
UBC math prof Nathan Divinsky
and English prof Anthony Lavin,
running for the NPA's Genuine
Education Movement, were left
high and dry by students at 42 and
41 votes respectively.
Courier
Phillips himself starred in all his
smiling glory as the subject of the
front page picture entitled His
Worship the Mayor.
Staff of College Printers which
prints the paper said Courier staff
asked them to hold off with printing until as late as possible.
But The Courier ran off the

on its side.

TEAM wins but less than '72
By JAKE van der KAMP
For all the uncertainty that came
out in reports of the first polls in
Wednesday's civic elections, one
thing was clear.
Vancouver voters preferred
TEAM mayoralty candidate Art
Phillips to the NPA's George Puil.
Forty minutes after the first polls
closed Phillips was declared
elected and ended the night a very
comfortable 9,000 votes ahead of
Puil.
A TEAM sweep of aldermanic,
park board and school board
positions followed of course, but
none of these positions were
decided quite as decisively as that
of mayor.
And for both of the major parties
in the election, the mayoralty race
was a crucial one.
MR. PEANUT ... good show.
Both TEAM and NPA had run
their campaigns on a basis of the
leader being the most important
man in the party. It was Phillips
and Puil from the beginning. They
spoke for their parties, they got the
press and responsibility for the
results of the election rests largely
on them.
Naturally, personalities also
entered into the election. Phillips
was characterized by his handsome smile and competent
executive attitude while Puil came
across as a blustering hard-
running underdog.
But for all that, Puil conceded
the election with some grace. "I
want to congratulate you for a
great campaign," he told Phillips
by telephone. And while he no
doubt bore some rancor at his
defeat in an election to which he
attached a great deal of personal
importance, Puil kept his bitterness well hidden.
So now it's TEAM for a second
time. Phillips is mayor and the
aldermen are dominantly TEAM.
And while those results were
generally expected, it is still a
triumph for the party which
wanted to reform city hall and now
has those reforms approved.
It's also a victory for that group
of UBC professors and other
concerned outsiders who first
conceived TEAM in the faculty
club in i%7.
They were looking for a reformist slate to overthrow the overtly
business-minded NPA councils
which had ruled city hall since
1937.
They didn't succeed in the 1968
civic elections but in 1970 they
gained a toehold on council and
made it a conquest in 1972.
That conquest has been
somewhat reduced this time with
TEAM capturing five of the 10
aldermanic seats, four of them
going to NPA candidates and one,
of course, to top contender Harry
Rankin of the Committee of
Progressive Electors.
But it is nevertheless a mandate
for TEAM to continue with what it
calls its reformist policies.
Those reformist policies have
been called in question during the
last two years. TEAM has been
accused of concerning itself only
with "cosmetic programs" such as
the Granville Mall and development of housing along False Creek.
To some extent that charge is
true. There is a lack of long-term
planning among TEAM aldermen.
The Granville Mall project is a
highly visible one but does little
aside setting up a no cars lane in
the centre of the city.
And the original TEAM plan
calling for all things beautiful on
False Creek has degenerated to
construction of a seawall and
housing which is low income only if
one considers a salary of about
$20,000 a year low income.
These projects are only the
initial phase of a TEAM plan which
calls for "people-oriented"
development of the city over a six-
or eight-year period.
That over-all program did not
receive a hearty endorsation from
the voters who were called on to
judge the merits of a five-year plan
for beautifying the city and making
services more efficient.
And it's certainly a good question
whether TEAM stalwarts are not
being devious in saying it has more
far-reaching plans for the future.
TEAM has not given definite
statements of its commitments to
whether the city should grow, how
it should grow, how housing should
be made available and how it
stands in relation to the Greater
Vancouver Regional District.
It wants to develop the city for
"people" but does not say how that
will be achieved. Phillips remained
in a low-key position throughout
the election and now that he has
given voters no definite commitments can do pretty much what
he wants.
Phillips will, however, be limited
by the council which has the final
voting power on all issues.
Rankin will vote against many of
TEAM'S policies. He announced
shortly after it was certain he was
re-elected that COPE"s program
would eventually find endorsation
from the voters.
"It's not a program that will
appeal to people who are still on a
quality-oMife kick, but it's a
program that will succeed."
And if Rankin's leftist ideology
clashes with those of TEAM, the
right wing ideologies of NPA
aldermen promise to do the same.
The only NPA alderman with
any definite concept of how the city
should be run is planner Warnett
Kennedy.
Kennedy also sought a position
on the GVRD to push his policies on
keeping the Lower Mainland
predominantly a green belt with
necessary housing built on the
mountainsides.
But the others in NPA don't
promise to give much. They can be
counted on to vote for an increased
police force and other motherhood
issues.
Aside from Kennedy, long range
planning has never existed in the
NPA. Even cosmetic developments do not form part of the NPA
platform. It's business and a direct
knee-jerk reaction to social
problems that characterizes the
slate.
The NPA influence has not
carried over to the school board or
the park board, however.
The Genuine Education
Movement, an offshoot of NPA
which stressed the three r's, was
generally rejected by voters.
Instead,   the  Vancouver  elec
torate picked a school board which
is at least open to changing the
education in accordance with the
changing views of society.
TEAM'S sweep of park board
positions also has direct implications, particularly for UBC.
The issue that directly affects
UBC is whether the park board will
pressure the provincial government to keep the university endowment lands as a park or use it
for housing development.
The city, of course, has no direct
jurisdiction over the UEL which is
controlled by the provincial
government but TEAM park
commissioners are likely to favor
development of the lands as a park.
This is particularly true of newly
elected commissioner Bowie
Keefer who campaigned on a basis
of keeping the UEL in its natural
state.
And the two greatest opponents
last year of withholding the erosion
control project on Wreck Beach for
further study of its effects are now
gone from the park board.
Commissioner Sandy Robertson
did not stand for re-election and
nor did George Puil who was
defeated as a mayoralty candidate.

The exciting product
spectrum of pure telecommunications manufacturing — this is the world of
Northern Electric and in
it, we've become an acknowledged leader.
Last year we opened
or began work on nine
new plants. We reached

affiliate, Bell-Northern

the largest industrial facility of its type in the

There's a whole

South lies the giant

East the challenging
European Common

Pacific area potential so
big we can't even measure
it. We've already established effective bases in
these markets. But to be
as big a part of them as we
intend to be, we need more
bright, young and enthusiastic engineers—people
who can be as creative
with telecommunications
technology as our sales
people are with market
development.

we've seen the principle of

Of course, our standards are high. But then,
so are the financial rewards and career securities for engineers who can
help us achieve our goals.

'Birds 4th in wrestling classic
By TOM BARNES
Wrestlers from 16 universities,
colleges, schools and clubs
gathered at War Memorial gym
Saturday for the annual UBC in-
vitationaL freestyle wrestling
classic.
The tournament is considered to
be one of the top freestyle
wrestling tournaments in North
America as it gathers together
wrestlers from Washington, Idaho,
Oregon, Alberta and B.C.
B.C. wrestlers have shown some
improvement over the past few
years and reached a peak this time
around as SFU finished third and
the Thunderbirds took fourth spot.
Northern Idaho Community
College placed first with 44 points
and Central Washington State took
second with 41 points. SFU and
UBC had 35 and 24 points
respectively.
Mike Richey was the Thunderbird standout as he captured
the 167-pound division. He took the
title with a  decision over  Pat
Zahner of Northern Idaho. Richey
has been one of the top 'Birds
prospects recently and was a
steady performer last year. He is
starting to come into his own now.
But he admits the freestyle rules
favor his style as his up wrestling
is much stronger than his down.
The toughest class of the event
was at 190-pounds. The 'Birds
George Richey placed third, but
this can only be regarded as an
upset. Richey finished sixth at the
world championships here and had

Basketballers take three
By CARL VESTERBACK
UBC Thunderettes swept two
and the Thunderbirds split a pair of
games in weekend basketball
action in Lethbridge.
The Thunderettes, continuing
their mastery of collegiate
women's basketball, dumped
University of Lethbridge
Pronghorns 7141 and 85-28 Friday
and Saturday.
UBC opened with a full court
zone press, but only managed to
build a 26-21 halftime lead in the
Friday game. Coach Susan Evans
switched to a man-to-man press in
the second half, and the Thunderettes responded, outscoring
Lethbridge 45-20 over the final 20
minutes.
Carol Turney had 24 points and
17 rebounds to lead UBC, while
Kathy Burdett contributed 12
points. The team's overall shooting
percentage was a weak 28 per cent.
In Saturday's game, the
Thunderettes again used a zone
press, this time with better effect,
-to build a 43-23 halftime lead.
Evans again switched to a man-toman press in the second half, and
limited the Pronghorns to only five
points.
At the other end of the court,
UBC scored almost at will, and
finished with 85 points, winning by
57.
Kathy Burdette hit on 83 per cent
of her shots, leading the Thunderettes with 21 points. Carol
Turney and Sandra Tatchel both
had 12.
Evans was pleased with her
team's performance. "We used
everyone in both games, and all the
girls played well. Our individual
defensive play has improved
tremendously."
The men's team, meanwhile,
managed only a split in their two
games. In Friday's game, the
'Birds were stomped 89-69. Steve
Pettifer scored 26 points in a losing
effort which disappointed coach
Peter Mullins.
"We played badly," he said
flatly. "By this time we should be
playing much better."
In the Saturday game, the 'Birds
threw out their full court press and
fast running game, and slowed the
game down in an attempt to curtail
the high-scoring Lethbridge team.
It worked, but the 'Birds still had to
come from behind to take a 65-62
win. Again, Pettifer led UBC with
32 points.
Mullins admitted that Pettifer is
dominating the 'Birds' scoring
statistics; and that the team would
be vulnerable if he were to have a
bad game.
"If Pettifer can't score, someone
else will have to pick up the
slack, or we'll lose," he said.
The next games for both teams
are Nov. 22 and 23 at War
Memorial gym against the
University of Alberta. Game times
are 6:30 p.m. for the Thunderettes
and 8:30 p.m. for the 'Birds.
to be the favorite going into the
competition.
Richey met the eventual division
winner, Bill Kullberg of the
Palouse Hills Wrestling Buffs,
twice in the preliminaries and in
the final round robin competition.
Both matches ended in a draw.
However in the round robin
Rocky Isley of Central Washington
State scored an upset decision over
Richey dropping him to third.
Kullburg had no trouble pinning
Isley in the final.
Although the 'Birds have improved in the lighter weight classes
the only points they could pick up
were Jon Davison's fifth and Joe
Machial's sixth in the 118-pound
division.
In the 150-pound class Fred
Delgiglio placed sixth. At 158, Gus
Ro mane Hi took fifth spot.
Romanelli could have finished
higher but he was forced to default
to Greg Louvier of Seattle Pacific
when he tore a tendon in his right
arm in the second period of their
match.
Craig Delahunt finished fifth at
177 pounds. He had been improving
steadily and has started strong this
year and possibly could have
placed higher than he did. Unfortunately the draw had him going
against three of the top men in his
division in the first four matches.
The tournament kicked off the
regular season for the 'Birds. They
will now play a number of dual
meets against various colleges in
the Pacific Northwest. Unlike last
season several of these events will
take place at War Memorial gym.
Now UBC students will have a
chance to view the sport that is
starting to overtake basketball at
most U.S. universities and
colleges.
Final results:
118pounds, 1st Ken Foss (Northern
Idaho); 5th Davison (UBC); 6th
Machial (UBC).
125 pounds, 1st Willie Guy (Central
Washington State).
PANGO PANGO (UNS) —
Events of great importance occurred here today as liberal blorgs
re-elected Art Flops as Pharoah of
Pango Pango.
Challenger George Puke of the
No-bullshit Patronizing
Association conceded election one
minute after polls closed and
promptly left the ballot counting
area with a terse "I've got five
pottery classes tomorrow and
besides I've ignored them lately."
Mr. Walnut, a lunatic fringe
candidate, received heavy support
from Pango's mental institutions
and universities but failed to make
a good show in the lower-, middle-
and upper-classes.
"I guess there just aren't enough
nuts to go around," he said.
134 pounds,  1st  Gary Gardener
(unattached)."
142   pounds,   1st   Ron   Gallegos
(Grays   Harbor   Community
College).
150 pounds, 1st Mike Reed (Northern Idaho); 5th Gus Romanelli
(UBC).
167  pounds,   1st  Mike   Richey
(UBC).
177   pounds,   1st   John   Neufeld
(SFU);   5th  Craig  Delahunt
(UBC).

(Palouse Hills Wrestling Buffs);
3rd George Richey (UBC).

Rowers
fight
winds
Last Sunday 50 UBC students
spent a windy, miserable day
rowing in Seattle.
The UBC rowers were competing
in the Annual Head of the Lake
Regatta. Their results were unspectacular, but they were
working against bad wind and
water conditions.
The team placed fourth in the
varsity eights, seventh in the
lightweight eights, third and fifth
in the junior eights, seventh in the
varsity coxed fours and seventh
and eighth in the single sculls.
For some of the UBC oarsmen
this was their first race against
other universities. They hope the
experience gained at this regatta
will pay off in their more important
races next term.
For the time being the rowers
will be training hard under new
coach Rod Bell-Irving.
