VANCOUVER, B.C., FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 17,  1976

Forum on UBC
future urged by
president Kenny
By CHRIS GAINOR
Reacting to statements from
education minister Pat McGeer
that technical and vocational
learning will receive a higher
priority,   UBC   administration
Educators
hit report
conclusions
The findings of the Winegard
commission on higher education in
B.C.'s non-metropolitan areas
continue to draw fire from B.C.
university officials.
The only reaction strongly
favoring the commission's findings, which call for a four-campus
university which would be under
the wing of Simon Fraser
University until 1990, comes from
Universities Council chairman
William Armstrong.
SFU president Pauline Jewett
reacted positively although
ambiguously to the report, which
was written by former Guelph
University president William
Winegard for the department of
education.
Jewett said Thursday she will
bring the report before the SFU
senate committee on academic
planning. If SFU rejects the findings, the Winegard report said the
new institution should be set up on
its own.
"I personally believe that SFU is
well-suited to work with communities in the interior to develop
unique educational opportunities,"
said Jewett, who refused to make a
stronger indication of her feelings.
The commission, which was set
up May 5, proposed campuses in
Nelson, Prince George, Kamloops
and Kelowna, with a headquarters
in Vernon.
UBC administration president
Doug Kenny Wednesday attacked
the report, saying it "grossly
underestimates" both the capital
costs and operating costs of the
proposed institution.
Armstrong said he thinks the
reports main recommendation is a
good one.
In response to criticisms that the
commission was hastily conducted, he said the recommendations are "pretty soundly
based on experience in other
countries" and that Winegard "did
not have to rediscover the whole
system".
The Universities Council, the
Department of Education, and the
SFU senate must still discuss the
report though before anything is
done to implement it, Education
Minister Pat McGeer said last
week.
Peter Buitenhuis, chairman of
the SFU department of English
and a member of the commission
Thursday criticized the report
strongly.
Buitenhuis said he is concerned
about the role SFU would be called
to take. He said it would be too big
a drain on the University to administer the colleges and provide
faculty and materials for them.
He    said    a    multi-campus
university should be created in the
See page 2:   SFU
-t—11W* -y. .
president Doug Kenny Thursday
proposed a series of "open
forums" on the role and direction
of UBC.
McGeer, speaking Wednesday to
a Socred constituency meeting at
the faculty club, said education
aimed at B.C.'s job markets will
get new emphasis and "pure"
learning in the arts and sciences
will receive less emphasis.
"If he is quoted correctly, then
there is an inconsistency between
himself and myself on the role of
the university," Kenny said in an
interview.
"It would be desirable to have
open forums where me and others
can discuss the role of universities
and other educational institutions," said Kenny.
He said the open forums should
include "important people in
society and others," and when
asked if he would like the education
minister to speak at a forum,
Kenny said, "sure."
"I'm always glad to discuss the
role of this university in the
province's higher education with
other people," he added.
"I'm sure Dr. McGeer would
place an emphasis on the arts and
sciences."
Kenny said he would like to
concentrate on the "internal
operation of the university" as
opposed to general education
policy in the forums.
During a noon-hour speech
Thursday near the clocktower,
Kenny jokingly compared the
proposed forums to the upcoming
debates between U.S. president
Gerald Ford and presidential
candidate Jimmy Carter.
But Kenny said later he did not
want the forums to turn into a
debate between him and McGeer
or anyone else.
McGeer said Wednesday he
expects to receive next week the
Goudry report on B.C.'s universities system. The report -will
examine programs in great
demand and where jobs are
available for graduates.
"That report is not oriented to
the less practical side of university, let's call it," he added.
Discussing this year's budget
cutbacks, Kenny called UBC-
budgets "extremely tight." Op-
. portunities for beginning new
programs and academic projects
are now "almost zero," he said.
Kenny said he is optimistic that
budgetary restraints will be
loosened next year.

LCB quota hits thirsty res students
ByLENMacKAVE
A decision by the B.C. Liquor
Control Board to tighten up liquor
licencing regulations has resulted
in a dry September for UBC
residence students.
The decision to allot only two
special occasion permits a month
to each residence has forced
residence associations to cancel
social functions or sell liquor
illegally.
Ruth Bridges, president of the
Place Vanier residents'
association, said Thursday no
permits have been issued to Place
Vanier and none will be issued until
the association convinces the
RCMP that the residences will
obey liquor licence regulations.
"The last word we heard was
none are to be issued by Sgt. A.
Hutchinson of the university
RCMP detachment," she said.
Bridges said the PVRA has to
convince the RCMP they will
follow liquor regulations and not
serve people less than 19 years of
age.
"A letter has already been
drafted with all the signatures of
the PVRA members and 10 house
councils," she said. "If we are
issued with our allotment of
licenses again, it will be the intention of the PVRA to enforce the
regulations stronger than we have
in the past."
Hutchinson attributed the new,
tighter policy to special occasion
liquor permit officer D. I.
MacGregor.
"He (MacGregor) has decided
some regulations weren't being
enforced out at UBC the way he
wanted it," he said. "But these
regulations are being enforced
throughout B.C."
Hutchinson said the RCMP
haven't visited the residences in
the past to check liquor permits but
it will check more closely now.
"This is just something we have
to do in accordance with the
regulations; not that I believe
there is a drinking problem out at
UBC," he said.
In a telephone interview Wednesday MacGregor said the rule
allowing only two liquor permits a
month for each organization has
always been on the books.
"I   had   received   instructions
from higher up in Victoria to enforce the law," he said. "Things
were getting carried away before.
I believe one outfit had taken out 13
special occasion permits in 17
days."
MacGregor said the Liquor
Control Board had been receiving a
lot of complaints from public
houses.
"People who have gone through
all the trouble and expense of
setting a place up, organizing and
licencing it and building up their
business, are having all this taken
away from them by people who
could obtain as many permits as
they wanted," he said.

SFU, NDU blast report
From page 1
interior,   but   said   it   should   be
completely autonomous.
Such a university could run its
own small units if centrally
organized and administered from
its own centre, he said, but to run it
from SFU would cause too many
headaches.
He said the commission had too
short a time in which to research
fully the matter of a university in
the interior, but he did not blame
Winegard, but the department of
education.
Stronger criticism came from
students and faculty from Notre
Dame University in  Nelson.
Notre Dame is currently an
independent university but the
Winegard report suggested it
become part of the proposed new
university.
Vince Salvo, president of the
NDU faculty association, said
Thursday: "I don't think that his
(Winegard's) suggestions are
relevant to NDU at all. We are a
university with obligations to the
students and to ourselves. We have
to reject the report."
Salvo said, "Our position is that
we are a university. If the
government    isn't    going    to
Sask students form
provincial federation
REGINA (CUP) — Saskatchewan student councils have
agreed to build the framework for
a provincial organization, making
them the sixth region in Canada to
establish a  students'   federation.
The attempt to establish a
provincial student union is a
response to educational funding
cutbacks and discrimination
against students, and it is the first
attempt to mobilize students on a
province-wide basis since the
Saskatchewan Association of
Students disbanded in 1973.
The Saskatchewan organization
would join the National Union of
Students, the B.C. Students'
Federation, the Federation of
Alberta Students, the Ontario
Students' Federation,
L'Association Nationale des
Educiants de Quebec and the
Atlantic Federation  of Students.
It would continue the recent
trend towards smaller, decentralized student federations
working for student goals on
provincial and regional rather than
national levels, and leaves only
Manitoba without a student
federation.
This - past year has seen increased tuition fees, elimination of
Opportunities for Youth, cutbacks
in the provincial youth employment programme, attacks on
international students and an ever-
increasing" housing shortage which
will affect students in every post-
secondary institute in the
province," said University of
Saskatchewan student union
executive Glenn Parker.
Another U of S union executive
said the government has moved to
divide students while continually
refusing to honor agreements with
student unions.
"It has become obvious to
student leaders in every institution
that the only manner through
which we could reverse this
situation is through unified action," said Mary Thauberger.
At a recent meeting in Regina
representatives from five student
unions decided to support the
National Union of Students'
national student day Nov. 9.
They also approved a provincial

committee which will prepare a
student aid brief and endorsed two
studies dealing with the effects of
high unemployment on students
and how students are used as free
labor during school terms.
Other items discussed included
the housing crisis, and summer
employment quotas on international students.

recognize that fact, they'll have to
close us down."
NDU currently has 23 faculty
members, down from 46 last year.
Salvo said the report calls for this
to be reduced further to 10 members. He said the university now
has a minimally credible academic
program but any further reductions of faculty would mean the
program could no longer be
recommended to students.
NDU students council president
Terry Peterson said Thursday that
superficially the report appears to
answer the questions and respond
to the desires of NDU students, in
that they are pleased with the
decentralized campus and the
retention of NDU as part of the
proposed university.
But the fact the college would
have only 10 faculty would
decrease its value as a centre for
upper level education, Peterson
said.
He was also disappointed that
the new unjversity would be under
SFU control. He said placing
degree granting powers under SFU
control destroys local control. The
placing of a few local persons on
the SFU Board of Governors as the
report recommends would still not
result in any local control of the
university, he added.

Hispanic head made enemies
Hispanic and Italian studies
head Harold Livermore was fired
because of arguments with
professors and then-assistant arts
dean Robert Will, The Ubyssey has
learned.
Professors in the department say
Livermore, department head since
1967, tost his post because he differed with Will and some
professors about tenure, promotion
and hiring procedures and course
assignments.
The UBC board of governors
decided at a Sept. 7 meeting to
replace Livermore. Board
chairman Thomas Dohn said later
the board took the step because
Livermore was not a good administrator.
One professor who worked under
Livermore said Livermore wasn't
suited to head the department.
"He wasn't the right person to
head a department that was
language and literature oriented,"
the professor, who didn't want to
be identified, said. "He is mainly a
historian whose sensitivity to
literature and language wasn't the
right one."
"For example, there were many
students interested in Latin
American literature but no
professor to teach it.
"Each time there was a vacancy
which could be filled with a Latin
American specialist it seemed a
new professor came out from
England. His policy of hiring
people was extremely personal."
In 1974, professors in the
department became involved in a
bitter dispute with Livermore
about whether to grant tenure to
three professors.
As a result, then assistant arts
dean Robert Will stepped in and
granted tenure to the professors.
This dispute and later
disagreements about promotions
created bad feeling between
Livermore  and  then  arts   dean
Doug Kenny (now administration
president).
"In 1975 an argument about a
change of course instructions
resulted in nine out of 10 students
enrolled in Italian 400 dropping out
of the course," one professor said.
"The students threatened to
publicize their case but the matter
was hushed over."
"Putting all this together you
have a department that is very
unhappy and that unhappiness
grows day by day until you have to
do something about it.
"There wasn't really a
revolution. Well there was, but it
was badly organized.

Students resigned to fee increase
By DEB van der GRACHT
Student reaction to next year's
tuition fee hikes is split between
students dead set against any hike
and students grudgingly prepared
to pay higher fees.
But the general attitude of
students surveyed Thursday by
The Ubyssey was: "What can you
do?"
Although the amount of tuition
hikes won't be known until the
provincial government brings
down its budget in spring, it is
clear that hikes are unavoidable.
UBC students currently pay
about 10or 15 percent of the actual
cost of education each year.
"It's a rip-off," said Doug
Querns, physical education 2,
"They'd have higher fees, but less
people could afford to come."
Ken Rowan, commerce -3,
summed up the attitudes of many
students when he said: "Where
else could you go? When you're
just about finished your degree,
you'd come back."
Physical education student Pam
Triggs said she may consider going
to another university if fees were
cheaper, but would probably be
back at UBC if its fees were the
same as other universities.
"What can you do?" she asked.
Don Gregory, science 4, said a
hike would be fine with him, as
long as it wasn't so high as to put
university out of the financial
reach of students.
"There's nothing we can do
about it," said Brian Jang, commerce 3. "Besides, it would be
good for tax deductions."
Dave Cocking, arts A, said UBC
should set up a system similar to
that at some American universities.
"They should raise tuition fees
for non-Canadian students, but not
for native students," he said.
Several students said that if fees
went up they'd have to apply for
student loans to make it through.
Miriam Moses, arts 4, said she
thought a fee increase would be
justified provided more student aid
was available.
"I wouldn't stay out on principle.
If I could afford the increase, I'd
come back."
Asked if they thought education
should be free for everyone, most
students said no. They generally
agreed some contribution should
be made by those interested in
post-secondary education.
Ed Slik, education 4, said:
"Some effort should be made by
the student. For someone not sure
if he wanted to be here, it (free
education) would be a free ride."
Students also complained about
the high price of textbooks.
Perry Mazzone, arts 1, said: "A
fee increase is fine. They haven't
been increased for a long time.
Books should be lower, though."
Jane Wild, home economics 1,
said a fee increase wouldn't be so
bad if the university would pay for
books.
"The problem is that power at
UBC is granted for life, and except
in extraordinary circumstances is
not taken away. It becomes a right
of God, not a duty.
"You could say that Mr.
Livermore's personality as a
department head went very well
with the democratic structure of
UBC. He had a personality different as a department head than
outside. You can talk to him
privately on any matter and he is
very pleasant," said the professor.
let AMS
run votes'
—lawyers
The university should let
students run their own elections,
Alma Mater Society lawyers have
decided.
According to the university's
interpretation of the Universities
Act, registrar Jack Parnall runs
the elections of student
representatives to the UBC senate
and board of governors. But AMS
lawyers Swinton and Company
have come up with a different
interpretation of the Act.
The lawyers base their interpretation on a section of the Act
which states "The senate of each
university shall be composed of a
number of students . . . elected by
and from the Student
Association ..."
And student representative
assembly president Dave Van
Blarcom said Thursday students
should have run-their own elections
all along.
"We've found through years of
experience that student run
elections tend to be more
democratic.
"Students can do a better job,
with no malice to Mr. Parnall. I
couldn't say he's done a bad job.
But he's not a student, he's not in
touch with what's going on."
But before control of elections
passes to the students, the AMS
lawyers' interpretation must be
approved by a senate committee
and then by the senate itself.
If the senate doesn't improve the
interpretation the issue might go to
court, Van Blarcom said.
The university probably won't
object to students running their
own elections because the elections
cost the administration a lot
money, he said.
If the SRA decides to use
volunteer pollsters at the elections,
the student council could run them
at less cost than the registrar does
now, Van Blarcom said.
BCSF prepares to fight fees
By CHRIS GAINOR
Efforts are already under way by the Alma Mater
Society and the B.C. Students' Federation to prevent
tuition fee hikes at UBC and the province's other two
public universities.
A nearly-complete BCSF position paper on tuition
calls for no increase in fees, AMS external affairs
officer Moe Sihota said Thursday.
The paper is being written by Sihota and BCSF
staffer Stew Savard for presentation to the education
department. "We are recommending that there be no
tuition increase until a general financial policy is
drawn up," Sihota said.
Students already pay enough for their education,
Sihota said. In addition to the costs of tuition and
books, students pay large amounts in foregone income, which is lost when students attend university
instead of working, he said.
B.C. students are forced to pay the highest prices
for food, shelter and other necessities in Canada, he
added.
If tuition is raised, Sihota said, the cost in B.C. of
financial aid programs will have to rise from the
current figure of $30 million per year to $40 or $50
million per year.
"And this is the worst year ever for student em
ployment," he said. "Unless they can make more
money, then they can't return to school."
Sihota said the AMS will run a survey of student
attitudes on tuition and student financial needs. The
survey will occur in conjunction with an upcoming
referendum on vendors in SUB, said Sihota.
The AMS will also use the survey taken by the
registrar's office during registration, he said.
The student representative assembly have commissioned a report on tuition hikes to be completed by
October. Sihota, SRA president Dave Van Blarcom
and commerce rep Dave Theessen are writing the
report.
"We're trying to find out if students' ability to pay
has increased since the last tuition fee increase," Van
Blarcom said Thursday. The matter will be discussed
by the SRA at its next meeting, Van Blarcom added.
Asked for his opinion on possible increases, Van
Blarcom said: "Personally, I think tuition should not
be seen as a source of revenue for the university. It
should be seen as a token commitment on the part of
the student."
Tuition should not be increased because it only
makes up a minor portion of the university's
revenues, and if it made up a major portion, most
students could not afford to attend, he said. Page 4

Cutbacks up
tuition fees
When you send in those tuition fees this month to the
finance department, remember that next year you will be
kissing off an even larger amount.
Yes, tuition fees are going up. The only question is how
much they will rise.
That question will be answered when the board of
governors approves the hike on the recommendation of
administration president Doug Kenny.
Outwardly, these people will be the villains in the
whole affair, but the real culprit will be sitting pretty above
the hard decisions and the consequent recriminations.
Who is this person?
Well, he belongs to the same bunch which so far this
year has tripled your auto insurance bill, increased sales taxes
40 per cent, doubled ferry fares, and boosted hydro and
hospital insurance bills.
You guessed it. He is Pat McGeer, the minister of
education in B.C.'s Social Credit government.
Ultimately, the blame rests on the Socred cabinet,
which has mindlessly pursued its bottom-line fiscal policies
which have put a kink in the province's economic growth.
Higher tuition became inevitable last March when the
Socreds' first budget came down. B.C.'s three universities
were faced with drastic cutbacks in capital outlays and only a
9.5 per cent hike in operating grants, putting universities
behind in the race against inflation.
And because the Socreds' economic mismanagement is
preventing them from attaining their goal of a
pay-as-you-go-budget, next year's budget will see more cuts.
But the effects are already being felt. Budget cutbacks
are hitting university programs and services. And further cuts
will adversely affect academic standards, something the
administration will not allow.
So students will be asked to foot the bill. The same
students who are forced to pay in so many other ways for
Socred policies.
And amid all this, the university is still trying to
recover from the fiscal policies of W. A. C. Bennett, which
three years of NDP government didn't correct.
UBC has been blessed with the most penny-pinching
administration in Canada. This was so Bennett could have
lots of money left to day the Peace and Columbia rivers.
And did you every wonder why so many buildings
here, including that $4.7 million pool we are forking out $5
each year for, are student financed?
So when the new tuition fees are announced, don't get
mad at Kenny. Protest to McGeer and his cohorts.
Time is running out to block any tuition increase. But
if it can't be stopped, students can use their ultimate protest
weapon at the next provincial election, unfortunately three
years away.
And remember, hiked tuition fees are not the disease.
They're merely the latest symptom.
We're still here Jell°

'By the way, Herbie, did you hear that university
attendance has risen a bit this year?"
Murray should resign
Rick Murray, one of two
"student representatives" on
the university board of
governors, should resign.
He has a full-time
off-campus job and isn't
interested in taking any
courses. He's said he'll take
one course, but only if the
Alma Mater Society insists he
do so to retain his board seat.
Murray was a student last
year, when he won the board
position. Then came what he
calls an "unexpected" job
offer, an offer he decided not
to refuse.
Unexpected? What
bullshit.   Murray   admits   he
went to a job interview, so
the .job offer couldn't have
been a bolt out of the blue;
he was actively seeking the job
and must have considered at
one time the possibility that
he might actually land it.
Murray will say, with his
patented "I know I'm
bullshitting but i'm not going
to admit it" smirk, that he
would really like to resign,
but it would take until
November to set up an
election, so the winner of the
election would get to all of
two board meetings before
his or her term expires.
But what he's not saying
is that he's had the job for
months, that he knew of the
job as a sure thing back in
March, and that he applied
for the job shortly after, if
not before, he was re-elected
to the board.
When Murray stood for
re-election and won, he was
committing himself to being
a student representative on
the board for the entire term.
If he was only going to do so
if he didn't get a job, he
should never have run; he
should have resigned as soon

journalism
It must be a slow year in the
pressroom when you folks have to
resort to maligning knight in
shining armour types like myself.
In your trashy, two-bit, cheap,
petty article (which was the
epitome of yellow journalism) you
completely misrepresented the
true facts of the matter. To set the
record straight I have outlined
them below.
1. Lisa "Hinge-heels" LaDouche
is not and never has been my
mistress. She was employed as a
part-time toaster repair woman in
my downtown campaign
headquarters.
2. The girl seen running from my
car near the clock tower last
weekend was not "stark naked".
She was wearing a hard-hat, gun
holster and swim fins. Besides, she
is my mother.
3."My office staff in SUB does
not include "two goats and an
anaconda". The snake is a python
and is not employed by me. She
works for one of the goats.
4. The 16 cases of Jello delivered
to my West End apartment were
not paid for by the student
representative assembly. They
were a gift from the Liberate
Nadia Comaneci Committee.
5. My wife is not divorcing me
over   "events   reported   in   the
press" over the last few weeks. He
is still very much in love with me.
I hope this clears up any
misconceptions that the voting
public may have concerning my
integrity.
I remain "Yours in '76".

/Money main Issue
Labor talks to resume Sunday
By LAWRIE McMAHEN
Contract negotiations between
the Canadian Union of Public
Employees, local 116, and the UBC
administration will continue
Sunday, following a long meeting
Thursday night.
CUPE local president Ken Andrews said early today, following
the marathon bargaining session,
that "now it all boils down to
money."
Andrews said a great deal of
progress was made in issues other
than money at the Thursday talks,
but the CUPE head refused to
discuss specifics, saying "we're in
a very delicate spot in the process
right now."
Provincial mediator Jock
Waterston will continue to handle
the bargaining process, Andrews
said.
The local 116 president confirmed the union was asking for a
12 per cent or $120 per month wage
increase, whichever is larger, for
its members.
The university was offering an
eight per cent increase.
CUPE, the largest union on
campus, with 1,500 members including support staff in such areas
as the bookstore, UBC Patrol, food
services and physical plant, voted
by an 80 per cent margin Sunday to
strike if necessary to support wage
demands.
But at that time, the union made
no move to deliver the 72-hour
strike notice required before the
CUPE workers can walk off the
job.
Prof forces gravelly
admin compromise
Andrews said earlier this week
that Thursday's bargaining session
with the university administration
would probably determine whether
the talks would progress or the
union would deliver strike notice.
Speculation Thursday that a
breakdown in talks could lead to
CUPE pickets surrounding the
campus as early as Monday
morning led one source to give
assurances that no' strike would
occur at least until after a Tuesday
general meeting of the union
membership.
And, despite the breakthrough in
negotiations late Thursday, Andrews said the membership
meeting will go ahead as scheduled
Tuesday evening, in addition to a
union executive meeting 4 p.m.
Monday.
The earlier threat of a CUPE
strike led at least one campus
group to hold an urgent meeting
Thursday in an attempt to coordinate student and faculty
support for the union.
The Committee for a Democratic
University, a coalition of faculty,
students, and staff organized last
year to combat the conservative
attitudes demonstrated during the
Association of University and
College Employees (AUCE) strike,
held a small meeting where it was
decided to organize student and
faculty support from the Lutheran
Campus Centre, Monday in the
event of a strike.
With no strike imminent, the
CDU will hold an open meeting
Friday to plan its future support of
campus labor, notably for the Oct.
14 day of national protest.
AUCE, the second largest union
on campus with 1,476 members, is
currently negotiating with the
university for a new contract. The
AUCE agreement expires Sept. 30.

liquor administration branch, said
Thursday most undergraduate
societies will be considered for
liquor permits according to the
way they are organized.
"I understand the engineering
undergraduate society 4s composed of various sub-groups," he
said. "Each of these, civil
engineers, chemical, etcetera will
be eligible for their two licenses
per month."
But    Woodland    said     each
residence will be consfdered an
individual organization.
"Each house in residence will
not be eligible for two liquor
permits as they are all part of one
entire body," he said. "However,
appeals will be considered if I
receive letters in Victoria."
Woodland said the liquor board
tightened regulations because of
abuses of special occasion permits
in the Lower Mainland.
But Woodland declined to say
where the incidents occurred
Soil science professor Jan de
Vries has forced a compromise on
the use of 1.6 acres at the south end
of campus — land he has fought for
two years to preserve as green
space.
De Vries pitched his tent in front
of bulldozers during the summer to
halt paving of the plot at the old
Dairy Barnsite near B lot, and now
the administration has covered the
site with gravel instead of asphalt.
Administration vice-president
Chuck Connaghan said Thursday
the university has agreed to not
decide on a permanent use for the
site until 1978 and to set up two new
committees to study land use at
UBC.
Connaghan said the university
will launch a study of transportation and parking needs on
campus and set up a committee to
supervise the study.
A second committee — this one a
president's committee — will study
the future use of all UBC lands.
Connaghan said the university
originally wanted to pave the old
dairy barnsite to create a bus mall
for the buses running between B lot
and the centre of campus.
But he said UBC will use the
gravelled site for parking until
1978, when a decision about the
future of the site will be made.
De Vries told The Ubyssey he
wants to preserve the site for its
historical value. He said he
deplores the loss of green space at
UBC during the last few years of
busy construction.
De Vries' battle began in September, 1974, when he opposed
destruction of the Dairy Barn —
then one of the oldest buildings on
campus — for a 300-space parking
lot.
But his protests were in vain and
the barn was torn down, a fact de
Vries still regrets.
Soon after the demolition of the
dairy barn de Vries began a fight to
save the surrounding pasture
which he said supported vegetation
unique on the campus.
After a petition signed by many
UBC faculty and students failed to
sway administrators from their
decision to create a parking lot on
the pasture site, de Vries pitched
his tent to halt machinery.

'Truly the vilest rag imaginable9
By MERRILEE ROBSON
The Ubyssey has been publishing
for close to 60 years now. During
that time it has been criticized for
being either too serious or too
frivolous. It has been damned and
defended. This article will explain
the   conditions   in   which   the
UBC was just a "glorified high
school" and to be consistent with
their position as Varsity students,
those present at the meeting
agreed that all female students
above the freshman level should
wear their hair up, a sign that they
had reached womanhood. At the
UBYSSEY OFFICE
Ubyssey grew up so you can understand why it turned out the way
it did.
The Ubyssey made its first
appearance as a weekly
newspaper on Oct. 17, 1918. It
opened demurely with a story on
the Freshman Reception, at which
the "Freshies" were given the
opportunity to meet senior
students and campus dignitaries,
like the AMS president. Each
senior student was responsible for
the happiness of one of the freshmen at the reception, which consisted of musical entertainment,
speeches, cards and dancing.
It all sounds very cozy. The
account of such a genteel evening
might make first year students
who haven't yet spoken to anyone
look wistfully at by-gone days. Or,
at least, senior students might wish
they could have a Freshie on whom
to use maternal instincts.
However, inserted in this society
page article is a casual mention of
the previous week's initiation rites.
The first issue includes a poem,
entitled "Initiation Night,"
describing molasses in the hair,
doses of castor oil and a visit to an
"inept barber." Women — oh,
sorry, I meant Freshettes — were
not exempted.
The first issue of the paper also
contained several obituaries of
UBC students and alumni killed
during WWI. These seem overly
grim juxtaposed with stories of
campus hi-jinks.
The first editorial in the
newspaper concluded:
"The paper will only be as interesting as the matter it contains,
and the interest of the matter
depends upon the number of
various individuals who are
reporting and writing and upon the
work put on their contributions by
those people. If you don't like the
paper get to work to improve it;
but don't grouch about it in the
corridors."
Does that sound familiar? We
say that every year and no one
ever listens.
After the illustrious first- issue
the paper continued through 1918-
19, reporting the social events on
campus. One of the Ubyssey
editors decided that the Dramatic
Society's choice of Oscar Wilde's
The Importance of Being Earnest
was too frivolous for a Varsity
presentation, and said so in an
editorial. The controversy over
this issue filled many pages with
letters from the opposing sides.
The Ubyssey also covered the
meetings of the Women's Undergraduate Society, during one of
which the members voted to
uphold the dignity of the university. To correct the impression that
—doug field photo

Easter eggs, some jokes and three
photographs. One of the pictures
was of a cheerleader with her arms
outstretched, with the caption:
Look at those holes in his hands.
Another was a photograph of a hole

construction sites: The tag line:
The tomb is empty.
he next issue was a special issue
published bf the Students' Council
(They called themselves that, later
reverting to the title of the Alma
Mater Society). The issue was
devoted to describing the fate of
Ubyssey staff who had worked on
the goon issue. The Council had
voted to suspend the editorial
board and senior staff members
from the paper.
Al Forrest, then editor-in-chief,
' claimed   complete   responsibility
for   the   lampoon,   although   he
reportedly had not been present
when the issue was put together.
The altercation merited the
attention of the Province and
several newspapers outside the
city. Jack Webster called for the
expulsion of "at least one of those
rascals."
The Students' Council's special
issue of the Ubyssey printed letters
from people on both sides of the
controversy. The cheerleaders
complained that their publicity
photo had been used in. such a
manner. The Ubyssey staff and
their supporters talked about
freedom of the press and said that
any worthy institution should be
able to withstand a little mockery.
They said that many great
philosophers had questioned their
religion, the only difference being
that they had done it better. The
decision then became simply a
question of aesthetics, hardly
grounds for expulsion.
The Students' Council responded, saying ". . . the people
responsible for this paper stepped
over the boundaries of common
decency." The Ubyssey joined the
Vatican's list of forbidden
publications.
The following autumn the
Ubyssey started off shakily with
editor Kerry White and a completely new staff. Shortly afterward Bill Rayner from the Sun
began to come around to the
Ubyssey office and help the new
staff on Sun-paid overtime. This
arrangement was advantageous
for  both   sides.   The   new   staff
learned how to run a newspaper
and the Ubyssey became a training
camp for future Sun reporters.
Rayner's instruction ended in
1971 and since then the Ubyssey's
new recruits have been trained by
hoary senior staff members.
In 1961 the Ubyssey was awarded
the Canadian University Press
Southam Trophy for the first time.
At that CUP conference the
Ubyssey tied for first place with
the Varsity from the University of
Toronto.
After winning the Southam
trophy for the seventh time in a
row, Ubyssey editor Danny Stoff-
man moved to abolish the competition in 1968. The motion was
passed by the delegates at CUP's
thirtieth national conference. They
"agreed that objective standards
for judging newspapers were
unrealizable and the competition
was incompatible with CUP's
purpose of encouraging
cooperation among members."
The first Page Friday appeared
in 1964, replacing the skimpy
Critic's page. The Ubyssey has
been wonderful ever since.
same meeting the appointment of a
Dean of Women was requested and
the society agreed to speak with
the administration on that subject.
And then there was the front
page story about the notorious
Artsmen's Dance. There appears
to have been some pretty wild stuff
going on. The Ubyssey reported
that guests were rude to the
hostesses, danced improperly and
were disorderly at the supper
table. (Sounds like lunchtime in the
Ubyssey office.) Some of the
gentlemen even smoked on the
premises. The result of this sort of
conduct was a ban on dances for
some time.
The students responded to this
with great courage and the oc^
casional   party.   The  Ubyssey
covered a party which one of the
senior students threw for the rest
of the graduating class.  At this
party  the guests behaved more
decorously, thanking the hostess'

The   early   editions   of   the
Ubyssey, if not distinguished by
weighty  content,  were   at  least
characterized  by  an   attractive,
though ornate, prose style, which
makes   the   present   illiteracy
question a more obvious problem.
By 1922, the time of the Great
Trek, the paper was dealing with
more political issues. In 1931 editor
Ron Grantham was suspended for
daring    to    criticize    the    administration  and   the   provincial
government, and for expressing
his  views on  the  interaction  of
those two bodies. His successor,
Himie  Koshevoy,   now   of   the
Province, began his editorship by
criticizing the administration and
the  provincial   government   and
protesting Grantham's suspension.
The Ubyssey topped the list of
papers   with   the   least   faculty
control in a national survey conducted in 1955. This report led Rev.
E. C. Pappert, then faculty adviser
to the paper at Assumptiofi College
in Windsor, the paper with the
most   censorship,   to   comment,
"The Ubyssey is the vilest rag you
can   imagine   and   is   the   best
argument for censorship that could
be produced. Thank God we're at
the bottom."
The Ubyssey staff, called
Pubsters because they worked in
the publications office (If we called
ourselves that people would
laugh), managed to continue un-
censored for a few more years.
They ran a lot of pictures of football queens and other pretty co-eds
to make everyone think they were
just an innocent campus rag.
Then, in 1959's spring goon issue,
the Ubyssey published a special
Easter page. This page consisted

Buildings hail old boys
By RALPH MAURER
Education cutbacks that have
virtually stopped construction at
UBC are going to disappoint more
than a lot of students.
They are also going to disappoint
a lot of faculty and administration
heavies who have toiled at UBC for
decades, looking forward to the
greatest honor of all: having a
building named after them.
Ah, yes. Better than any raise,
any honorary degree, better than a
million gold watches on retirement
day, better than being asked to
write forwards for people's books.

A dozen times a day, in the
covers of notebooks, in conversations, in 'tween classes
notices, students are paying
tributes to names like these, and
you don't even know who they are,
or what they did to deserve the
honor.
The names of UBC's buildings
reflect its history—one of steady,
moderate growth. Its heroes are
those people who took over and
expanded  faculties  and  depart
ments, people who wanted to make
UBC a great university and
decided to put their life into this
campus, rather than using it as a
stepping stone to careers at other
universities.
Other buildings are named after
people well liked by both students
and faculty—Sedgewick and Brock
are examples.
For some of the buildings the
current administration would like
you to remember who they're
named after, but not what they do
or did. They still wince every time
someone mentions where "Cecil

The commerce building is
named after Henry Angus, a
member of the Rowell-Sirois
commission which in 1937 worked
out money-sharing formulas for
the provinces and Ottawa to follow,
formulas being followed to this
day. He was a high-ranking
member of the external affairs
department during world war Two.
World War Two isn't the most
honorable period for Canada's
external affairs department, and
Angus was apparently one of the
few people who objected to that
department's   relocation   of   the
Japanese-Canadians to concentration camps in B.C.'s interiors—andin the best tradition of
a backroomer who doesn't rock the
boat, he never told the world he
was against this policy, a decision
he must occasionally have
regretted since Canadians began to
realize what a mistake that policy
was.
Reginald Brock, as in Brock
Hall, earned the respect of all
students when, in 1914 he was one
quarter of the committee which
decided that UBC would be the first
Canadian university which would
not require Greek or Latin for a
B.A. degree. Brock, also the
university's first Applied Sciences
dean, was killed in an airplane
crash in 1935, and when students
built their first student union
building a few years later they
named it Brock Hall.

Trek Tricksters9 Triumph
By DAVID MORTON
From the dusty dry halls of an
institution such as UBC, it might be
hard to imagine a past full of
colorful personalities and events
against the grey of academe.
Lectures and exams, and conflicts
with the government have always
been around, and will be
forevermore. Right?
Perhaps this is so, in view of the
to the province's fastest growing
city, and its beautiful setting.
The.president of the university at'
that time, Dr. Franklin Wesbrook,
had quickly put plans for the site's
development into action. Architects' drawings were examined
and finally accepted. He approached the government for
funds, and construction soon began
on the first building. Temporary
That summer 17,000 names were
gathered, and the campaign
continued into the fall term.
Publicity committees were set
up to make the public aware of the
students' plight. Weekly press
releases were issued to 60
newspapers in the province. Free
advertising space in the local daily
papers wereobtained, and pictures
and displays were set up in store
SARDINES . . . trekking together

long bureaucratic battles between
the administration and the
government, but it is undoubtedly
the students who have made the
past of this university worth being
proud of.
Nowhere is this better exemplified than in the Great Trek of
1922. This great pilgrimage for the
construction of university
buildings on the Point Grey
campus is not only part of the
heritage of today's students, but it
opened the doors to student activism, bringing us out of the red
tape of the administration into
more of a student oriented institution.
From the very beginning, the
University of British Columbia was
plagued with problems. In the
early part of the nineteenth century after pressure from several
groups, the government of B.C.
instituted the University Act,
creating the concept of a provin-
cially funded university. But
successive governments became
interested in funding the
development of the provinces
resources and the new idea never
got off the ground. It was too uncertain how the general public felt
about higher education.
However, in 1906, legislation was
brought about enabling McGill
University of Montreal to operate
extensions in Vancouver and
Victoria. Thus, pressure for higher
education was taken off the
government.
The McGill University of B.C.
situated itself in a group of temporary shingle shacks in Fairview,
near the present site of the Vancouver General Hospital. It offered
the first two years of instruction in
Arts, Agriculture, and Applied
Science, and to finish the courses,
students would study on the McGill
campus in Montreal.
It wasn't until 1914 that the
University of B.C. opened the doors
to its students as a fully authorized,
tuition-free institution. It took over
the Fairview shacks which by this
time were insufficient to house the
number of students that were
registered for that particular year.
The sight of Point Grey for the
permanent residence of UBC had
been chosen by a government
committee set aside for the task.
The question of where the
university should be situated was a
hotly debated issue by various
groups around the province.
Places such as Victoria, New
Westminster, and Prince Rupert
all felt the University should be
situated in their city. Point Grey
was chosen for its close proximity
shacks were built there, and land
was cleared for the Department of
Agriculture, which soon began part
of its instruction there.
But in August 1914, the dream of
Point Grey was shattered by the
outbreak of war. Government
funding was stopped immediately,
and construction halted with the
Science building, (now the
Chemistry building), an ugly bare
frame.
Fairview was full, and the
university had barely enough funds
to continue.
Though registration during the
war years was quite small, conditions in the temporary shacks
were abominable. In President
Wesbrook's own words:
"The students have no
recreation or playgrounds, no
gymnasium, no assembly, an
examination hall capable of
holding no more than 150 people, no
common room or study room, no
adequate locker space, and the
present sanitary arrangements
render the university culpable
from thepublic health standpoint."
Classes were being held in tents,
church basements, and hospital
rooms. In fact, rats had been
spotted in some classrooms, and
the head of the French department
was reported to have said that he
had "heard of the odor of sanctity... but never encountered it
before."-v
Tuition fees were leveled upon
the students for the first time in
1921 to make up for the miniscule
government budget that had been
so affected by the Great War. The
concept of a higher education being
a right of all people was destroyed.
Forty dollars was the grand total
for each student.
In 1922, a fee increase to fifty
dollars brought university tuition
to the highest fee in Canada. At the
same time the students were
studying in slum conditions. All
administration efforts to get mre
money out of the government were
futile.
The students were goaded into
action. For the first time since the
university's beginning, they came
together as one political voice.
In the spring of 1922, the
students' council launched a
"Build the University Campaign".
A committee circulated petitions to
the students to take with them
during the summer. The petition
demanded a definite and progressive policy towards the University of British Columbia, as well
as immediate attention to the
erection of permanent buildings on
the Point Grey campus."
front windows of the conditions at
Fairview.
The concluding activities for the
campaign were scheduled for
Varsity Week, October 22 to 28. It
was during this time that activities
reached their climax.
The students arranged a parade
on foot of all their numbers,
through the streets of Vancouver,
and then a symbolic march out to
the sight of the Point Grey Campus. They called it The Pilgrimage,
but it is better known today as the
Great Trek.
They met at about midday on the
Georgia Viaduct, proceeded north
along main street to Hastings, west
to Granville then south to Davie
where they boarded streetcars, for
the second leg of the Great Trek.
The march through the city
contained upwards of 35 floats,
members of the Elks and Police
Bands and numerous banners as
well as a great majority of the 1,190
UBC students and alumni from
UBC, the University of Toronto and
McGill.
The themes of the floats
illustrated the poor conditions at
Fairview. The whole parade was a
massive effort of imagination,
creating an atmosphere that was a
far cry from that of the average
student power march of the 1960s
and 1970s.
They used such uncomplicated
symbols as the Old Woman in the
Shoe, with students peering
through holes of a giant boot, and
others camping in tents around the
sides. Others featured a giant tent
symbolizing the classroom of the
Chemistry students, a large sardine can, and a huge pot over full
with students.
In a similar vein, the banners
and chants of the marchers included such slogans as "UBC,
NSF, SOS, PDQ" and "Life in a
tent is all very fine, but a mighty
poor place for Chemistry".
Students took the parade
seriously, but its planning, according to those who took part in it,
was above all a fun activity. It was
harmless in comparison to the
violent demonstrations in later
years.
With the floats, banners, cars
and music, the marchers formed a
long and boisterous parade line
through the city. They proceeded
without incident, drawing large
enthusiastic sidewalk crowds,
although in the planning stages of
the march had had to be rerouted
from the business district of town
in order to avoid the only unap-
preciative group, the wealthy
members of the Vancouver Club.
From the corner of Davie and
Granville streets, they departed
via streetcars for the University
gates at 10th and Sasamat. There
the parade reformed and march
down the gravel road that is now
University Boulevard, to the eight
year old skeleton of the Science
Building—a gaunt reminder of the
forces which prevented its completion.
Upon reaching the building, the
students mounted the concrete
stairs of the empty frame structure
and hung their class banners
precariously from its four unwanted floors. They posed for
photographs and films taken of the
event by students of their own
ranks.
The final event of the day was the
dedication of the Cairn, a sturdy
rectangle of masonry which is still
situated on the Main Mall in front
of the Chemistry building.
The Cairn's base and sides had
already been built, but the students
completed it by tossing stones
which they had carried during the
Great Trek, into the hollow core.
An account of the campaign in a
time capsule was placed inside the
Cairn and sealed. Speeches were
made concerning the success of the
campaign so far and hope for the
government's cooperation when
the 56,000 signatures were to be
presented in the near future. The,
inscription on the Cairn reads
simply, "To the glory of Alma
Mater Student Campaign, 1922-23."
A few days later, the 56,000
signatures collected over the
summer and the Varsity Week
campaign, by four members of the
campaign, including J.V. Clyne,
future president of McMillan and
Bloedel. The team spoke to the
Legislature, pleading their case as
the petition was brought in, roll by
roll, by six page boys.
This move came at a time when
the premier of British Columbia,
John Oliver, was experiencing
increasing pressure not only from
the opposition, but from members
of his own Liberal party, concerning the immediate construction of the University at Point
Grey. This was especially in
response to the post-war student
boom that was stretching the
facilities at Fairview to the limits.
A week later, on November 9,
1922, Oliver announced that the
government would float the
university a loan of 1.5 million
dollars to enable building to be
resumed after eight years.
Victory was the students.
The headline of the next day's
Ubyssey punned in large type:
"Government sees the Point."
When the new campus finally
opened its doors in 1925 there was a
new enrollment of 1,500.
Today at UBC, with numbers
approaching 25,000, it is unlikely
that the same kind of enthusiasm
and student participation could
ever come off. Many things have
disappeared since the days of the
Great Trek. In the early fifties an
annual award was started called
the Great Trekkers Award. It was
awarded to former students of the
university for service in their
particular years. It trickled out of
existence in the mid sixties. In 1966
the Annual, the Totem, which had
been popular since the beginning of
the university, uttered its last
whisper.
But if anything remains from the
old days of the campus it is the
inevitable financial haggling with
the government. The only marches
that remain are those on
registration day and the Bookstore
rush that everybody still suffers.
The war at UBC
By IAN MORTON
Thoughfew U.B.C. students may be
willing to accept this, the time in
which they now attend University
is perhaps the easiest that students
have ever had here. They may
grumble about fee hikes, they may
detest the inevitable rat race
feeling of an overpopulated
campus, and of course, there are
always examinations. The student
more often than not looks at
University life as plight not
pleasure.
But has the university student of
this generation ever really considered what it must be like to be a
student in wartime? Is it likely that
today's student would be at all
capable-physically or mentally-of
facing a war tomorrow. How would
he react to the threat o£ conscription, compulsory military
training, the eyes of the outside
world asking "What's this? A
slacker? Rather read his books
than serve King and country would
he?", and on top of this, still having
examinations?
It would be interesting to see'how
the student would do in another
major World War keeping in mind
the hypocrisy of such ideas as self-
determination, the lunatic
genocide and the obsessive imperialism which gave definition to
the last two World Wards. A one
cannot yet say the student forgets
those vibrant Make-Love-Not-War-
Days.
Things, however, were pretty
straight forward for U.B.C.
students in the First World War,
and were much the same until
Number Two. I have paged
through numerous Ubyssey
newspapers desperately searching
for some diversity in student
opinions on the war. Unfortunately, there is very little
diversity. The papers (dated to
1916) admitted to being censored in
order not to confuse what was so
compassionately     wanted     at
U.B.C.—a good strong war effort.
It was only sensible that they
should, too. If anyone dared fail in
their support to the war, the threat
of conscription was magnified for
all. The student who wanted his
education first, before war, had
better tread softly or the folks
downtown would raise a fuss, and
in no time, he'd be in boot camp en
route to France"
Especially in the First World
War, when patriotism was at its
strongest ever iin Canada, you find
very little diversity in war opinion.
In 1917, when U.B.C. was situated
where the Vancouver General
Hospital now stands, one had no
problem seeing the Ubyssey's
point-of-view on the war. This is
from a review of a book that
consisted of a truly valiant story of
heroism: "depraved indeed must
be the heart of the slacker who
after reading, can look in his
mirror and say to himself 'thou art
a man,' say rather 'a thing' fit only
for the sneers and condemnation of
all right minded and responsible
citizens."
Actually the war effort U.B.C.
put forth in the Great War was
quite impressive. At one point in
1918, the students collected $25,250
in a Victory Loan Campaign, and
Red Cross fund raising was equally
successful. The student newspaper
was keeping interest in the war
effort at a peak, with slashing
editorials on "slackers,' and
correspondence with the boys
overseas.
I was able to find only one small
insignificant article in a WW I
Ubicee that expressed a rather
cautious view suggesting a student
opinion, other than one with "pro-
war" foundations. It is in this short
1918 review of a book by Bertrand
Russell that I felt someone on the

Student activism rare at UBC
By HEATHER WALKER
Student activism at UBC?
Student    what    at    where?
Everybody knows UBC students
specialize in  apathism,   not  activism !
Unless, of course, activism is
taken to mean the gears stringing
toilet paper all over the trees—
probably because the trees have
lost their leaves and the charitable
gears don't like to see them get
cold.
But no, once upon a time in the
dim and distant sixties, student
activism really did exist on this
campus.
UBC never produced anything to
equal  the marches,   sit-ins,   and
demonstrations  in  the   United
States, but we  did  have  a few
marches, and one famous sit-in.
The sit-in was instigated by then-
radical Jerry Rubin and his pig.
Rubin,   in  accordance  with   the
spirit of the seventies, has since
decided   to   advocate   moderate
reform of the system from within
instead of the complete destruction
he used to favor.
But more of Rubin later.
Student activism first raised it's
ugly head at UBC in 1965. Prior to
this, there was activism of a sort at
UBC, but it was directed towards
building   the   campus—the   best
example is the "Great Trek" to
Point Grey in 1923. The trek was
successful,   and   its   story   is
recorded in another part of this
issue.
But this sort of activism did not
lead to any change in the students'
position at UBC. Students could
suggest that more money be spent
at UBC, but they had no say in how
it should be spent, nor had they any
voice in other administration
decisions.
The final results of "building
activism" are seen in the so-called
"student-built buildings", most
notably the grey elephant SUB and
the huge hole optimistically known
as the new covered swimming
pool.
Besides their preoccupation with
construction, students before 1965
also carried out a petition, campaign, ultimately to force the old
Bennett government to spend more
money on higher education.
They collected some 250,000
signatures in a province-wide
"Back-Mac" campaign in 1963.
"Mac" was then-UBC administration president John
Macdonald. He wrote a report on
the future of higher education in
the province, in which he advocated that the provincial
government increase its per-capita
spending for post-secondary
education.
Macdonald also wanted to see
more post-secondary institutions in
B.C., both community colleges and
more universities. At the time,
UBC was the province's only
university.
The report was not favorably
received by the government—not
surprisingly, considering Wacky
Bennett's oft-repeated groans and
moans about the high cost of post-
secondary education. B.C.'s per
capita spending for post-secondary
education did eventually increase,
but only when the government
matched a federal government
increase.
The feds, by the way, were
"inspired" by another report
produced by the Association of
Universities and Colleges in
Canada (AUCC) which advocated
a total expenditure of six dollars
per capita, or $66 million in B.C.
Actual per capita spending came
to five dollars per student.
Now, at last, we come to 1965,
when students marched from UBC
to the Bayshore Inn to protest fee
increases.
The Bayshore may seem an odd
place to march to, but it was the
scene of an AUCC meeting, and the
students wanted to draw the ad-
ministrators'   attention   to   their
position on tuition fees.
In '65, students found out next
year's fees were to rise by $56—
from $372 to $428.
And, with occasional help and
frequent hinderance from the
Alma Mater Society, they decided
to protest the increase.
Help came from AMS first vice-
president Robert Cruise, hinderance from president Byron
Hender. Hender is one of the
multitude of AMS hacks who have
been recycled by the university,
and now poses as financial awards
officer for the administration. In
"65, Hender could not make up his
mind whether the AMS should
support the march, and his indecision nearly resulted in its
cancellation. But he finally decided
to come along, as did 3,500
students—who apparently had less
trouble in making the decision.
The march was supported by the
Canadian Union of Students (CUS),
the forerunner of the National
Union of Students. CUS was, and
NUS is, in favor of the complete
abolition of student fees. How little
things change!
The marchers were met by
sympathetic phrases, but little
else, and tuition fees still increased.
In 1966, students marched
downtown again, this time to city
hall to protest another perennial
issue—the housing shortage. They
wanted the city to change Point
Grey by-laws which only allowed
single family dwellings.
If this sounds familiar, it should.
Last year, UBC students asked
mayor Art Phillips the same
question, and got the same answer—no.
In 1967, UBC students took part
in a march to Victoria. The march,
organized by the B.C. Association
of Students, presented a proposal
for student representation on the
senate and board of governors, as
well as a demand (if that's not too
strong a word) for progressive
elimination of tuition fees.
Then-education minister Leslie
Peterson first refused to appear,
but finally came out and told the
protestors to go home.
"I don't approve of this kind of
action," said Peterson.
Eventually, students did go
home, and even more eventually,
students got representation on the
board and senate. But it is still only
token representation.
Now, at last, for the one big,
exciting UBC sit-in and circus.
In October, 1968, Jerry Rubin
came to UBC and led 2,000 students
to the faculty club, where they
smoked faculty club cigarettes and
drank faculty club booze.
One student went swimming, or
at least wading, in the faculty club
pond. Rubin's pig, the Yippie
presidential candidate, got some
exercise and a brief respite from
his boring round of campaigning
and speech-making.
And, in accordance with Rubin
demonstrations if not with
Canadian ones, someone burnt an
American flag.
How did Rubin get the students
to invade the club? He talked for
about an hour about authority, and
about opposing authority. Rubin
believed in revolution for its own
sake—personal liberation by
freeing yourself from social
restrictions.
And, at the end of his speech, he
asked if there was any place at
UBC which needed liberating.
And a few students in the crowd
shouted "The faculty club!", so
away they went.
Everybody had a good time,
except the profs, and a small
number of occupiers stayed
overnight.
And that was about all.
The demonstration was the first
and last event even resembling a
confrontation.of the administration
and a large number of students,
and there was no clear reason for a
confrontation to most of the
students.
They came on an impulse, for
fun, without leaders, and so had no
chance of causing any more than a
temporary disruption in the
university.
When war wilted UBC
Friday, September 17, 1976
From PF 4
staff was for once bold enough to
ruffle, if not lift the heavy cloak
draped   over   their   heads   that
censored their very words.
The book is definitely anti-war,
but the reviewers reaction is not
one of protest.
"In conclusion, however much
we may differ from Bertrand
Russell's ideas, we cannot but be
struck by the sincerity of his book,
nor can we fail to admire the moral
courage of the man who isolated,
ostracized by society, and driven
almost to despair by that feeling of
aloofness from his fellows, he
writes with a 'helpless longing to
save men from the ruin towards
which they are hastening', though
in doing so, he gained merely their
scorn, their laughter or their
condemnation."
It wasn't until 1939, however,
that the Ubyssey began to open up
more, as far as the war was concerned. Much of the same feelings
of duty remained. Perhaps if
Neville Chamberlain had not been
so blatantly lied to by Hitler, and if
the latter had not been quite so
explicit in his desire to conquer the
world, this attitude of war may not
have been taken so religiously. For
this, like the last war, was one that
had to be fought, and duty was
duty.
Still, something was different
from World War I. The paper
became more adventurous, exploring in more detail, what war
meant to the students. On October
1, 1939, students in the U.S. voted
against war saying that attack was
the only reason for active participation in warfare. This, for one,
caused a unique effect on the paper
and the students. Perhaps it was
the advent of a realization that
freedom of thought could exist on
the North American campus,
especially in the press. But five
days later the Ubyssey admitted,
"Our press is censored, and all that
we read is almost certain to be
coloured. The cunning propaganda
methods of this age are and will be
in use. It probably should not be
otherwise..."
This, though a defense of censorship, shows the student to at
least be coming out of his shell and
realizing a bit more of the truth
surrounding him. He begins to ask
not if the U.K. will win the war but
if a proper settlement after it will
be made, unlike the disastrous
Treaty of Versailles.
Also, the student became much
less reserved in his opinions of the
Canadian Officers Training Corps
and the compulsory military
training which each able-bodied
male student had to take along the
way.    This    article,    entitled
sities put forth a strong Anti-
Conscription Resolution. Dean
Krug of Mount Allison immediately suspended the conference commenting, "The point to
be made here is that any consideration of what aid might be
SHRUM'SC.O.T.C.
"Uniform Behaviour" gives an
idea of what some of those opinions
were.
"Military circles on the campus
have been quite perturbed ovel- a
certain lack of respect on the part
of the students for officers of the
CO.T.C. Uniformed students it
appears have been ridiculed by
civilian scholars in the Caf.
"Total absence of manners has
long been an unfortunate
characteristic of the students of
this campus, particularly when
under the influence of the relaxing
Cafe atmosphere. There is still no
reason however, for the adolescent
behaviour of jesting about a man in
a military uniform.
Things began to get much more
serious in the following year, 1940.
On January 15, at a Canadian
Student Assembly Conference held

Women righting wrongs
By JEAN RANDALL
The Report on the Status of
Women that was published in Jan.
of 1973 was sponsored by the
Women's Action Group of UBC and
prepared by Shelagh Day. It was a
result of International Women's
year and has a preamble, the
following observation: "What we
have found is that women at UBC
are a small proportion of the
faculty, that they are paid less than
men in every academic rank, that
with the same qualifications as
men, women are in inferior ranks,
that the work women staff
members do is paid less than the
work men staff members do, that
women do not occupy supervisory
and administrative positions on the
staff in the same proportions as
men, and that the University
educates fewer women than men,
and educates them less."
With a few minor changes that is
the situation at the present time.
The apparent lack of respect for
the equal rights of women at our
university is an important issue.
The current University's Act has
no provision that specifically
guarantees equal rights to women
at UBC, nor is there a formal
moral code governing the conduct
of students and faculty. Moral
behavior is mentioned in a general
context. According to one of the
members of the University Senate
and the Registrar of UBC, Jack
Parnall, there is no reason for a
special clause that guarantees
women equal rights, since they are
to share the same status as male
students, and need not be
distinguished from them.
The history of women's rights at
UBC, according to the 1958 edition
of Tuum Est, describes a
precarious commitment to
women's rights over the years.
There have been several university
acts written, and some have
provided explicit provision for
women. The final clause of an 1891
act declares that: "the Senate
shall make full provision for the
education in the University in such
manner as it shall deem most
fitting, provided however that no
women shall, by reason of her sex
be deprived of any advantage or
privileges accorded to other
students of the University".
That act met its demise within
three months, to be replaced by
another act not mentioning women
specifically.
In the time since the Royal
Commission on the Status of
Women was published in 1970,
there has been a resurgence of
interest in the area of women's
rights. The preamble to the report,
section 11, states: "The fourth
principle is that in certain areas
women will for an interim period
require special treatment to
overcome the adverse effects of
discriminatory practices."
Early in 1976 a proposal for a
task force on women was submitted to the president, Douglas
Kenny, by the Dean of women's
office, with the purpose of implementing the fourth principle. In
part it states, "If women are to
overcome the adverse effects of
discrimination by society, then
positive action must be initiated at
every level."
i The mandate of the task force is
to include active recruitment,
acceptance, and retention of
women students by faculty, and
presentation on policy making
committees. Part three of the six
point plan is to identify problems
facing women in the participation
in the University. Point four states
that once the problems are iden-
Buildings named
From PF 3
the new law building named after
him.
If you think the Forward
Building is an odd name for the
rusty new metallurgy building, it's
because it's named after F.A.
Forward, while another gear,
Hector MacLeod, has been honored
with the electrical engineering
building.
Most students still remember
Walter Gage, the patron saint of
engineering students, he was a
popular lecturer and university
president from 1969 to 1975 and has
had the unusual honor of having
Gage residences named after him
while he was still around.
Hebb and Hennings buildings are
named after two early UBC
physics heads, T.C. Hebb and A.E.
Hennings.
It's interesting to note the difference in how future generations
treated UBC's two presidents,
Frank Wesbrook and Leonard
Klinck. Wesbrook, president for
five years from 1914 to 1919, is
remembered with the Wesbrook
Health Sciences Centre, and
Wesbrook Mall and Place. Leonard
Klinck? His name is carved in a big
rock hidden in some trees off the
main mall: He was UBC's
president for 25 years, until 1944—
longer than any other person has
held the position.
The Ladner Clock Tower? That's
a monument to Leon Ladner,
businessman and close friend of
Wesbrook. It was paid for by
Ladner himself. The line at the
time of its construction during the
early part of this decade is that if
Ladner really wanted students to
know what time it was, he would
have bought a Timex for every
student on campus for about half
as much money.
Federick Lasserre was
rewarded for being UBC's first
architecture head and for
designing the Faculty Club in 1958;
the club was the gift of timber
baron (yes, he really was one)
Leon Koerner.
There is actually a building
named after someone who made
his mark as a student, not as a
teacher, businessman or administrator.
It's Sherwood Lett house, in
Place Vanier Residence. (Named,
incidently, after former Governor-
General Georges Vanier, one of
the very few campus buildings
named after a non-UBC figure).
Lett, although he returned to
UBC's faculty, is best known as a
founder and first president of the
Alma Mater Society, and as the
author of the first AMS constitution, which wasn't replaced
until last year.
The MacMillan building is a gift
of the late H.R. MacMillan and a
recognition of UBC's role in
producing many of the foresters
that helped make MacMillan-
Bloedel one of the world's largest
forestry corporations.
The real name of the education
building is the Neville Scarfe
building , named after the
department's first head. There
were a lot of red faces among
university administration when in
1973 the retired Neville and the
Mrs. were discovered living in
married stuents' quarters in Gage
Towers while there was a list of
students waiting to move in.
"Basically, we're living here as
squatters," Scarfe explained at the
time. "We find it a very unusual
situation and intend to leave within
the next two weeks, whether or not
we can move into our new apartment." They did, and their new
apartment was finally ready.
The popular Sedgewick library is
named after a popular and
distinguished English prof and
Shakespearean scholar, Garnet
Sedgewick. All that writing on the
windows, by the way, is from
Shakespeare, and all the
quotations have some reference to
vision, or light, or glass.
No building name is more controversial than that of Cecil Green
mansion, the home of the alumni
association and site of scads of
wedding and other receptions
during the past years.
Green, a UBc student from 1918
to 1921, is a founder of Texas Instruments, a company making not
only the pocket calculators that
come as standard equipment with
most kinds of science students, but
also all kinds of electronic
gadgetry put to use by American
army during the Vietnam War.
Green has long been a UBC
sugar daddy, and the university
administration almost choked
when in 1971 The Ubyssey ran a
story under a headline "Blood
money", explaining where Cecil
Green had made a good portion of
that money he was passing on to
his alma mater.
tified, that priorities be established
for solving them. Thus, it- seems
that the psychological health of
women students is an important
concern, as well as their financial
problems. In fact, in the orientation speech given by the Dean of
Women at the beginning of this
term Fulton stated that one of the
main functions of her office is to
act as a trouble-shooter for women
who feel they may be having difficulty coping with the system.
In the past there have been other
avenues available to women to
seek help, among them the AMS
women's office. Unfortunately, the
women's office met with some
problems involving bookkeeping
matters with the AMS over the
summer and the office is defunct at
the present time. However,
measures are being taken by the
President of the AMS, Dave Van
Blarcom, along with women
already involved with women's
rights, to put the matter before
council in the next week to reestablish   the women's office.
Although it is early in the term, it
is important to inform women that
the Steering Committee requested
by the Dean of Women in proposing
a task force on women, has not yet
been formally established by the
President's office. It is recommended that the Task Force include both men and women, and
that it be representative of
Faculty, staff, students and Administration. It is suggested that
there should be members who have
the expertise to fulfill the terms of
reference, referred to as the six
point plan.
Also pertaining to women's
rights on campus, are the few extra-credit women's studies courses
that undergraduate and graduate
students may take. Fulton is
teaching a three unit course in
Women's Literature in East Mall
Annex, Room 118, on Tues., Wed.,
Fri., at 11:30. Fulton is considering
the possibility of extending to form
a new department or an in-
tersciplinary program of study,
where grants could be obtained to
do research on the female identity.
People interested in the area of
women's rights will find the Dean
of Women's office on the fourth
floor of the Buchannan Building.
Students interested in attending
AMS meetings are encouraged to
take an active role.

Cale would rather be in Tulsa
By JOHN INCE
Leon Redbone and J. J. Cale opened the
U.B.C. Special Events Committee's 1976-77
concert program last Sunday night The
concert was well run, musically interesting,
but alas, a little dull.
The first act introduced Leon Redbone, a
stooped, shadowy figure, accompanied by
assorted paraphernalia such as guitar,
flashlight, walking stick, cigar and pocket
radio. Redbone's performance is both
musical and visual. His eccentricities,
puffing on a stogie or shining his flashlight
at a bothersome photographer, provided
great entertainment between his songs.
Redbone's music consists of brilliant
renditions of blues and folk tunes popular in
the '30s and '40s. He plays the acoustic
guitar with flair and occasionally blows a
tune on his harmonica. But Redbone's real
talent lies in his vocals.
Redbone doesn't really sing. He mumbles,
chortles, gargles, and cries, and now and
again you can make out a word. His vocal
range is exceptional. His voice is an instrument; he does not sing songs, he sings ,
instrumentals. i
Redbone's tunes tell simple stories that
seem out of place in the frantic 1970s. Yet
the concrete and colourful images are
refreshing to an audience accustomed to
abstraction. I found it very difficult to understand many of the words of his songs. It
was almost as if Redbone purposely garbled
the lyrics at times.
Fortunately, Redbone enunciated well for
the crowd's favorite, My Walking Stick.
You could almost believe Redbone when he
sang, "Without my walking stick, I'd go
insane/I can't look my best, I feel undressed, without my cane." The crowd
obviously enjoyed Redbone and brought him
back for an encore.
After a brief intermission J. J. Cale and
Company wandered onto the stage and
began the lead act. There were eight
members in the band. Standouts in the band
were Debbie Campbell on trumpet, guitar
and vocals and Richard Torres on
saxophone and keyboards.
Throughout the show J. J. took a low
profile. He left many of the leads to others in
the band and was content to direct the show
from stage left. He controlled the pace of the
set. Only on a few occasions did his mellow
voice and smooth guitar break through.
Most of the songs Cale performed were
from his most popular album, Naturally.
Unfortunately the brilliance of that album
did not shine in the concert situation. The
main problem I feel was that there were just
too many instruments. On many songs six
guitars formed the rhythm. The sound was
cluttered, and the instrumental and vocal
clarity which is the hallmark of J. J. Cale
was smothered.
The band displayed little energy and J.J.
never lef this position, sitting atop an amp to
the right of the band. Debbie Campbell's
gutsy vocals contrasted with the general
lethargy of the band. She was the only one of
the eight who seemed to really get off on the
music.
Fortunately things picked up towards the
end of the concert and I hoped that maybe
the band would come to life and bring the
audience to its feet, but J.J. would have none
of that, and one hour after he began, he
finished the set and refused to come back for
an encore.
I talked with J.J. after the show and asked
him why he refused to do encores. He
replied that it was a "ritual" for him not to
perform encores. On the basis of further
conversation I translated this to mean that
J. J. Cale, in the midst of a 27-date concert
road tour, is sapped of energy and uncomfortable in a concert situation.
J. J. Cale, like his music, is incredibly
mellow. There is little tension in his voice
and mannerisms. He has been in the music
business for a long time, but has been into
"the J.J. thing" as he called it, for about five
years. What he really wants in life is to sit at
home in Tulsa "and do nothin." He told me
that the further he gets into the business side
of music the more he dislikes it. He wasn't
too sure why he had undertaken such a
tough road tour. "I'm not into money, so it
couldn't be that."
While many entertainers make that
statement, few can be believed. But this is
not true of J. J. Cale. Unshaven, dressed in
dirty blue jeans, and totally unaffected,
J.J.'s lack of materialism is believable. His
unpretentious, natural character is the key
to the beauty of his music.
CALE AND COMPANY . .. letting it all hang out
Play canH puncture
+
By IAN MORTON
There is an exciting new play
now running at the Vancouver East
Cultural Centre which, if it does not
entertain you, shall certainly
provide you with a challenge. Tom
Grainger's Roundabout is indeed
an hilarious yet somehow elusive
event to see.
It is a quickly paced, always
active production that, with its
many fine individual performances, regularly draws the
attention and laughter from its
audiences. However, if you try to
make some sort of thematic grasp
of the play, you might well find
yourself on an imaginary treadmill
with that nagging anticipation that
eventually you will reach
destination, but never ever do.
Roundabout
A play by Tom Grainger
With   Roger   Rowley,    Antony
Holland
The   Vancouver   East   Cultural
Centre
Until Sept. 25
You would be better off, if you
simply went to Roundabout to take
in a wealth of theatrical riches and
appreciate   the   very   intelligent
stabs the playwright makes at your
heart, but never wounds.
The trouble with the play is that
Grainger spends too much of his
time in the final act tying up loose
ends, and as a result you end up
losing sight of his main intention.
In his final scene, where his main
character finishes the show with a
long comic routine, it seems as if
Grainger would rather titillate
than move the audience to the
deeper contemplation he provokes
at times throughout the play.
This only succeeds to confuse,
and it is a shame considering the
very impressive energy his play
generates until then. It occurred to
me, as I dragged my feet out the
doors of that charming little
theatre on Venables, that if the
New Play Centre which produces
the play, has chopped off the final
three scenes in Act Two, the play
would have been much closer to the
triumph it promises to be.
If Grainger had somehow
managed to avoid the intricacies
he leaves to the end to be finally
spoken for, I am sure that this
play, with its present cast, could
well be a King amongst all the
plays that have been written in
Canada for the past ten years.
Briefly, the story of the play
deals with the adventures of an
innocent young man who goes out
into the world to find his long, lost
mother. She is the large maternal
gap in his life, and he knows that
once he finds her, the world will be
a much more liveable place for
him. Roger Rowley, in a much
cleverer, more empathetic
Malcolm MacDowell-type role,
excels as Charlie Flower, finding
that gap to have cruelly become a
bottomless pit.
Though the play itself is laced
heavily with the coarseness of the
seedy society around it, it is. also a
poetic work. If you go, which I
strongly recommend, note in
particular the gorgeous performance of Antony Holland as
Charlie's father—now the Hermit
of Ribbleden Pike. His dreams of
better times, preferably in the
days of Launcelot, are memorably
performed.
Note also the performance of
Wayne Robson in the small role of
an old Tragedian, who is now
content to find the condition of the
world the only tragedy worth
speaking of.
In fact Grainger's mix of
coarseness and poetic vision are
what most strongly appeal to me in
his play—keeping my interest
vigorously alive until the final
three scenes. Unfortunately it is a
two and a half hour epic from
which a good thirty minutes could
be tapered.
Indeed, it would be a very unfortunate thing if Grainger and the
New Play Centre were to leave the
play as it is. It is such an
exhilarating, intelligent play,
crafted by a very shrewd,
professional writer, but it has a
very sore problem of theme
clarity. Surely its cure would not
be that difficult to find.
Perhaps the play is too intelligent for me, and I am missing
its point. One must definitely be
awake when experiencing it, but I
doubt it, because I feel I came so
close. That damned treadmill!

Bob Dylan thunders on
By BRUCE BAUGH
Bob Dylan and the Rolling
Thunder Revue came live in
concert into the living rooms of the
nation via the miracle of television
Tuesday night. It was an exciting
event, for music and for television.
Perhaps it was even a significant
event.
The film of the Rolling Thunder
concert at Colorado State
University, entitled "Hard Rain"
(owing to the weather which
prevailed at the concert) was
made by a group of young filmmakers. Originally, NBC was
going to broadcast their own
footage, but Dylan protested that it
looked just like any Midnight
Special and so told NBC to show the
"Hard Rain" film or forget it. NBC
wisely complied with Dylan's
request. It is not often that such
entertainment appears on
television.
It is possible that Dylan chose
the film because he is now so
aware of his image and so careful
about it. He never really smiled
during the whole film. He certainly
did not sneer. His expression was
brooding, serious and intense to the
point of being pained. He seemed
bent on demonstrating his stature
as an artist who believes he is an
artist and does all he can to make
his performance art. Dylan was
flat out; he appeared almost
desperate and he never relaxed or
retreated into condescension.
Perhaps Dylan is trying to be
accepted as an artist now and is
even concerned that he is not taken
as seriously as he once was. In an
interview in 1967, when Dylan was
asked whether he thought of
himself primarily as a singer or as
a poet, he replied he thought of
himself as a song and dance man.
But in 1967 there was little doubt in
very many people's minds as to
Dylan's stature as an artist. Since
John Wesley Harding, however, a
lot of doubt has arisen — which
Dylan evidently hopes to dispel.
Even Desire had some rather
lamentable songs, such as the
melodramatic B-movie style
biography of arch-hood Joey Gallo.
The impression given by
'Hard Rain" was that the flippancy is gone. In 1967 Dylan, when
asked to characterize himself, said
he would label himself as being
well under 30. Alas, not being
forever young, Dylan no longer
comes under that label, one which
was a prerequisite for popular
success in the sixties. If Dylan is to
survive as a significant writer and
performer he must establish
himself as an artist who remains
an artist and not merely a legend.
"Hard Rain" substantially
establishes this.
From the opening shot of Dylan
starting to do "A Hard Rain's
Gonna Fall" it was obvious that
neither he nor Rolling Thunder
were merely fooling around.
Rather, they appeared as a troupe
of musical missionaries determined to get the message (ie. the
music) across to the audience. It
was very spiritual. Dylan and
some of the members of Rolling
Thunder sported beaded arab-style
headresses while Joan Baez wore a
turban, giving the whole affair a
gypsy, middle-eastern flavour.
They seemed more like
troubadours than slick
professionals. A haggard but
dedicated bunch. Dylan wore a
beard that gave him a craggy, old-
world look. He also wore a Mogen
David, indicative of the spiritual
turn he and his music have taken
since 1966 and the near-fatal bike
crash.
The band slowly coalesced
around Dylan's voice and guitar. It
was spontaneous and loose. Joan
Baez sung harmony while Roger
McGuinn hovered beside her, just
off mike. Dylan turned around and
glanced at the band to cue them as
to where he was taking the song.
Musically, it was not that good
(a far better Rolling Thunder
version of "A Hard Rain" can be
heardon the "Believe What You've
Heard" bootleg taken from their
1975 tour), but the spontaneity
provided a visceral excitement and
crackling tension rarely found in a
performance situation. Energy
flowed freely between different
members of the band as they
seemed to be somewhat
desperately trying to keep up with
Dylan.
The fact that Dylan garbled
many of the lyrics and did not sing
a melodious note during the whole
song didn't seem to matter. The
way it came out was unpremeditated and genuine. It was
not a rendition of a golden oldie.
Dylan's performance of the song
demonstrated its relevance and
immediacy to right now, this
moment. The feeling aroused was
anything but one of nostalgia.
For the next few numbers it was
just Dylan and Baez up front on
acoustic guitars. On "Blowing in
the Wind" Baez carried the melody
and even seemed to drive Dylan
along a bit. Dylan's delivery looked
genuine. Pained and sincere, he
even attempted to follow the
melody about every third line
while the other two lines were
breathless and clipped:
How many times
can a man turn his head
pretending he just duzzn't
seeeeee?
Baez smiled beautifully, but
Dylan remained grim and tense.
The two put their heads together,
lips almost touching, like two old
lovers who know too much about
each other not to laugh a bit, yet
nevertheless have passed the point
where life is but a joke and have
reached that understanding which
exists only between good friends.
Dylan appeared a little cautious
and vulnerable in the presence of
Baez. The intimacy (real intimacy
on television!) was startling and
uplifting. "The Railroad Boy" and
Woody Guthrie's "Deportee" were
lessons in the timelessness of folk
music as well being moving performances. Baez finger-picked
acoustic guitar on "The Railroad
Boy", an old ballad about a girl
who hangs herself for the love of
the railroad boy she cannot wed.
"Deportee" is Guthrie's classic
about the exploitation of Mexican
workers in the fruit plantations of
the south and soutwestern U.S.
Dylan and Baez sang better on
the folksongs. The songs were not
flashbacks to Greenwich Village,
but expressions of current concerns: the sorrow that results from
the deprivation of the liberty and
dignity of the individual in love and
in work.
Far different in tone was the
rocking version of "I Pity the Poor
Immigrant" which followed.
Dylan's delivery seemed to indicate that he does not pity the poor
immigrant as much as finds the
whole mess we're in pitiful in
general. Dylan played biting but
extremely sloppy lead guitar on his
Fender Telecaster while Baez
joined him up front on vocals. The
band cooked. There was a
rollicking piano solo. Dylan bent
backwards to play guitar and
rocked back and forth to the beat.
He was into the music and giving it >
all he had. Joan Baez played l-
maracas and danced. The energy
level picked up considerably. The
audience had accorded the folk
songs only moderate applause, but
during this number the audience,
not knowing the song too well, was
ready to burst into applause during
the pauses between verses. The
stop/start rendion of the song
added to the tension: you were
forced to listen. At the end of the
song Dylan spoke to the audience"
for the only time during the film
when he"called out "Joan Baez!"
Baez turned to him and smiled
radiantly.
Dylan used a slightly out of tune
Ibanez guitar when he played slide
guitar on an energetic version of
"Shelter From the Storm," a song
from his post-comeback "Blood On
The Tracks" l.p. The Revue were
good on this one: it was the tightest
thing they had played up to that
point. Dylan's imagery is still
striking: "I asked her for
salvation, she gave me a lethal
dose . . . beauty walks the razor's
edge ..."
The anger, despair and bitterness characteristic of much of
"Blood On the Tracks" gives the
song a tension lacking in some of
the songs on "Desire." Bui the
electricity on this rendition made it
much more believable than it is on
the album. There was a strength
and conviction that Dylan expressed through the music that
gave the words a new meaning.
The song was no longer a lament
over lost love but an expression of
Dylan's personal triumph in that
he has survived the pain of
disillusionment.
A bluesy, boogie style "Maggie's
Farm" followed. Dylan almost
seemed afraid to say "I just get
bored": he choked back the words.
I wonder why he did the song: the
descending bass and guitar riffs
moved it along, but the flippancy
and carefree snideness that was
apparent on "Bringing It All Back
Home" was lacking, and this took a
lot of the fun out of the song. I got
the impression that if Dylan ain't
gonna work on Maggies farm no
more it is because he's too tired.
There w£re a few word changes,
but then Dylan always has enjoyed
tantalizing his audience with such
cryptic and probably insignificant
changes.
"One Too Many Mornings" was
done electrically and gave Scarlet
Rivera a chance to step out on
violin. Her playing was intriguing,
and added a romantic flavour to
the piece, but technically it was
just not very good. She was off. But
the feeling came across just the
same, and feeling has always been
more exciting then form in music.
The band was also tighter on this.
Dylan's guitar playing was much
less sloppy and his vocals were
much stronger.
Rivera played much better violin
on "Mozambique," the next
number. I've always found
"Mozambique" a charming
although trivial number, and the
lighthearted treatment it received
here confirmed my suspicion that
the innocence of the song, with its
false images of romance in the
tropics, was never intended
seriously. Instead, the idea is
stretched to the point where it
becomes simply facetious.
The highpoint of the broadcast
was "Idiot Wind." The stridency of
the "Blood on the Tracks" version
I've always found a little hard to
take, but this version was very
convincing and deadly real.
Dylan's delivery was extremely
powerful. He sang with conviction
and not a little tinge of righteous
accusation (of himself too, it may
be noted). It became a whole other
song — the  tension mounted as

music
Dylan shouted, howled and
growled out the lyrics, chewing up
his frustration and bitterness and
spitting it into the microphone,
until the chorus exploded: "Idiot
wind!" The bass held the disparate
guitars, vioMn and piano together
while the drums pushed the band
along. Dylan moved about, lunged
with his Telecaster, stood back to
play guitar and drove the words
home. It was the most exciting
moment of an exciting concert.
"Knockin' On Heaven's Door"
closed the film. Roger McGuinn
came out front with Dylan, singing
and playing his electric Ricken-
backer twelve-string and looking
fairly happy (whereas during "A
Hard Rain's Gonna Fall" he looked
wasted, to say the least). The
credits ran over the film as the
song continued. Allen Ginsberg
and Arthur Rimbaud, among
others, were thanked. Dylan certainly is aware of his image (was
the reference to Rimbaud perhaps
a bit of self-mockery?) However, I
was intensely bugged when NBC
chose to cut the film (I assume that
the filmmakers didn't do it) as
soon as the credits were over. I'm
sure I would have been left wanting
moreno matter how it ended, but it
would have tied up things —
emotionally, at least — if the
network had waited until the end of
the song.
The filming of the concert was
interesting. Like the music, it was
loose but enthusiastic and innovative. There were no annoying
voice-over announcements. The
camera shots, which included
many close-ups and hand held
shots, made a genuine attempt to
capture the feel of the concert.
However, the efforts of the filmmakers were largely in vain.
The reason is that television is
just not the right medium for rock
music. Any larger than life event
such as a rock concert loses a lot of
impact coming over the smaller
than life video screen. However,
Dylan on TV is better than no
Dylan at all. What really killed the
concert feeling was the commercials. In the first place they
were inappropriate and silly. They
aimed at a young audience, but any
viewer who digs Dylan would have
been appalled by the attitude of
these commercials. Secondly,
commercials destroyed the
emotional continuity. Just when
the excitement was building up,
when the concert was on the verge
of achieving a coherency and unity
of feeling,   a  commercial   would

come on and bring the emotional
level right back down. No commercials would have made it a lot
easier to get into the feeling of the
concert.
Despite the difficulties, Dylan
and his music came across. He did
not speak to the audience during
the film. The music and the performance said it all. And the way
Dylan himself came across was
anything but television slick. He
was personally involved in the
music. I hope he goes on this way.
He and his art are far more appealing when he reveals his
human, all too human
vulnerability than when he acts
aloof. Sooner or later some of us
must know that he really did try to
get close to us.

War
From PF 5
In fact it was this incident which
really seemed to spark a sudden
keen interest in conscription at this
university, as well as in all Vancouver. In the city, the Province
and the up-and-coming Sun were
deluged with Letters to The Editor,
for and against conscription.
So as the issue of conscription
grew outside the campus, it was
intensified to an uncomfortable
degree inside the campus. In 1942,
a throng of sixty-eight U.B.C.
students organized what was
called a Mock Parliament. Their
function was to pretend they were
the leaders of the country, and
conduct a serious game of politics
which raged in Brock Hall. They
examined present day problems
and voted their own solutions. One
of these was a bill for all able male
students in universities to be
conscripted. It was defeated 55-13.
Later on, local V.I.P.s got into
the act. In March 1943, under the
head, "Man Power Is Inadequate"
the Ubyssey reported the comments of Gordon Shrum, Commander of the C.O.T.C., and Dr.
GG. Sedgewick and their growing
preference for tighter conscription.
Both Shrum and Sedgewick
agreed that "University was an
excellent place for training men to
become leaders quickly, and that
therefore freshmen should not be
hounded by the draft board or be
called slackers when they are
equipping themselves for more
adequate service. However, for a
student to come to Varsity for
purely selfish reasons, just to train
himself to become rich while
others fight for him to keep that
privilege, is immoral and the
student is guilty of treason."
Other than the thorn of conscription, another blow to the
U.B.C. student during this war took
place soon after Japan entered the
scene in late 1941, Japanese
Canadians, many of whom were
here generations before the other
races populating Vancouver, were
forced to leave the city and were
hidden quietly away in central
British Columbia until the end of
the war.  To see many  of  their
friends being exiled from their
homes like this, yet to realize the
potential danger of a Japanese
attack, depressed many students.
It was a hopeless situation that, as
iong at this damger remained,
could never be remedied. One
editor of the Ubyssey, however,
thought the whole escapade an
exercose om racism.
"We of this generation know
something of these second
generation Canadian born
Japanese. We went through school
with them. Many of them are still
good friends of ours. And when we
read such references (as were
recently   made   here)   as...'Slick
U.B.C. trained Jap apes', our
stomachs turn over collectively in
loathing and disgust..."
Perhaps it was an accumulation
of this sordid development and
other nagging war complaints that
influenced the Ubyssey, in 1944 to
finally expose a few of the
inadequacies of the C.O.T.C, an
operation which had so
dramatically curbed University
life during war. The War's end was
near, and the paper's staff sensed a
return to the normal campus pace.
The regimentation of war would
soon vanish, and maybe the
Ubyssey felt it should help push the
C.O.T.C.  out the door  with  this
article. It is a list of typical student
C.O.T.C. complaints.
"1) The work is elementary, and
the same program is followed
every year for four years. The
student in his senior year invariable feels that six hours a week
have been totally wasted. He has
learned nothing that would be of
value in the event of an invasion, or
that is of use to him if subsequent
to graduation he joins the Army.
This repetitive Work, of high school
cadet grade, bores the student of
university calibre. Many claim
that their performance is worse at
the end of the four years than it
was when they started.
Tasteless trash
By VERN McDONALD
Tunnelvision is the name of a
futuristic television network in the
year 1985. It has won a Supreme
Court decision on censorship in
that year, and operates without
any restrictions at all, a state of
affairs resulting in a Senate
inquiry into its "questionable
programing." The board of
inquiry, as well as the movie
audience, is shown a condensed
day of Tunnelvision which takes up
the bulk of the movie.
The theme seems to be that a
situation where a television network operates without controls, the
outer fringes of bad taste will be
explored and exploited to bring to
the North American public what it
really wants. There is potential
here for outrageous humour and
biting satire, but the movie falls
far short in providing either.
Skits begin to develop, then die
out, punch lines seem to be left out,
and there is a lack of originality in
the comedy. All that is left is an
early shock value, which starts to
get thin about ten minutes into the
movie. Eventually the only laughs
that arise are from seeing how
close Tunnelvision approaches the
medium of television that it is
trying to parody. Both are rather
bland, pointless, and scatter-gun in
their approach in an attempt to
find something for everybody.
The movie is primarily intended,
however, for the youth market. For
example, there is the early mor-

"2) No credit is given for all this
drill when the student enlists in the
Army. On the other hand, the Navy
and Air Force allow their candidates reasonable credit for the
work they do in the University
Naval Division and the University
Training Corps. What is even
more, since their programs are
much farther advanced than that
of the Army, the boys maintain an
interest in them and actually get
some benefit from them. If the
training of the C.O.T.C. is not
worth anything to the Army, it is a
mild statement to say there would
seem to be something wrong with
it."
ning Spanish teacher who drools
and has dripping greasy hair, to
give you an idea of the ethnic
humour. He gives Hispanic
translations for such cultural
objects as "55 Chevy" and "reds"
and the late news anchorman turns
to his Barbra Walters-type co-host
and grins "Let's shoot up!" As
with most of the rest of the movie,
the comedic potential of most of
the ideas as already been used by
someone else, in this case Cheech
and Chong. Maybe if you still play
your C&C records and laugh for
hours at them after all these years,
this movie could be for you.
In order to reach the unkempt
masses of the youth market, the
movie is being promoted through
LG-FM, who sponsored the
midnight preview showing that I
attended. Unfortunately the age
group which would most likely feel
a sustained amusement at Tun-
nelvision's brand of humour aren't
old enough to see the movie. It is
restricted.
In the end, the trashiness, bad
taste, and exploitive aspects of
television are emulated rather
than satirized. Rather than go to
see Tunnelvision, spend an evening
in front of the real tube, hopefully
when Monty Python is on, and get
roughly the same entertainment
value for a fraction of the cost. The
trick is to laugh at the distorted
values of the commercials,
something you shouldn't need
Tunnelvision to tell you abut.

Senators hit bookstore
BOOKSTORE . . . high prices earn profits
Rec UBC fee dropped,
space easier to get
By IRENE WASILEWSKI
Recreation UBC, a physical
education sports activities
program, is free for UBC students
this year.
But faculty and staff who take
part must pay a $10 fee. And the
guest fee has been hiked to $1 from
fifty cents for each activity
session.
Since the program began in 1972,
students have paid a $5 fee to
participate. This year, after a
decision by the board of governors
last spring, the money will come
from UBC's administration.
Rec UBC co-ordinator Ed
Gautschi said he hopes to operate
with a $3,580 budget—most of it
spent on staff and equipment for
the program.
However, the possibility of
budget cuts by the administration
may curtail Rec UBC activities.
About 3,400 students and 450
faculty and staff took part in activities last year, including an
instruction program which will
also be free this year.
Basketball, badminton, floor
hockey, gymnastics and volleyball
are some of the activities offered in
the War Memorial Gym and the
Winter Sports centre when the
extramural or intramural
programs are not using these
facilities.
Students will also have access to
the circuit training area, the
weight room and Empire pool.
Instruction in ice-skating,
contemporary dance, yoga, stretch
exercises, golf and women's self-
defense karate are also offered,
depending on student interest and
available funds.
In the past, the tennis courts in
the Armouries were the most
heavily used facility.
Booking procedures have been
changed this year to prevent
groups from monopolizing time.
Groups can no longer make permanent bookings, and students can
book time one week in advance in
room 203 of the War Memorial
Gym.
Open time slots are posted on the
phys ed facilities schedule board,
and can be used for drop-in activities.
As well, the steering committee
of appointed students, faculty and
staff was dissolved and replaced
by a volunteer policy committee.
"The steering committee didn't
work out at all," Gautschi said.
"Once the AMS got the Rec UBC
fee abolished they weren't interested at all. We had a general
meeting and the AMS didn't show
up."
The new policy committee will
consist of volunteers who will meet
to discuss any operationing
problems.

Kenny to review profit
Pressure from three student
senators at Wednesday's senate
meeting won a pledge from administration president Doug
Kenny to investigate profits of
$108,000 made by the UBC
Bookstore last year.
Kenny promised to report to
senate's meeting next month on the
situation after pressure from
student senators Gordon Funt,
Dick Byl and Gary Moore.
Reacting to UBC's 1975 financial
statement which listed the
bookstore's profit, Funt said,
"personally, I think this is
outrageous."
Kenny, while promising to report
on the matter at senate's next
meeting, said the bookstore's
profit is made mainly on
stationery, not books, and is spent
on capital costs of the facility.
"It makes little difference to me
if the profits are made off a book or
off a pen," Funt retorted.
Byl told senate that books are
priced too high, especially because
the bookstore is a student service.
Moore asked why there was no
entry in the financial report under
accumulated reserves, where
bookstore profits are normally
deposited.
In other business, senate
rejected a request by registrar
Jack Parnall to have the university
calendar issued once every two
years instead of annually, as at
present.
Senate did support a motion that
the admissions committee advise
Parnall about the contents of each
year's calendar.
When asked why the calendar is
Profs work to rule
HALIFAX (CUP) - Faculty at
Saint Mary's University here who
have been working to rule since
Wednesday, will hold a study
session and strike vote Monday.
Faculty union members began
the work-to-rule campaign after
voting overwhelmingly against
contract changes proposed by the
administration, which the union
has termed "nothing less than
authoritarian."
Union spokesmen have said the
administration proposal — under
which union members would
"avoid, discourage, 'repress and
oppose picket lines, information
lines and media communications,"
—' would destroy academic
freedom, make tenure
meaningless and limit freedom of
speech.
Union spokesmen say the union
would be giving up basic trade
union rights it has won under the
Trade Union Act if it signed the
contract.
Faculty began the work-to-rule
campaign by boycotting
registration, and have said the
campaign will continue "until the
administration begins to bargain in
good faith."
Senior students and administration personnel refused to
support faculty and have continued
with registration while professors
remained in their offices to counsel
students.
Administration spokesmen have
refused comment except to say
money is the only stumbling block
in negotiations, although Union
spokesmen have said money is a
secondary issue.
issued as a single unit and not in
separate volumes, Parnall said an
experiment with separate volumes
in 1969 proved more costly.
"We have the cheapest calendar
in Canada," he said to a torrent of
laughter.
Parnall said he wanted the
calendar issued on a biennial basis
to save on rising mailing, printing
and production costs. But senate
members said an annual calendar
is needed.
During the debate, the registrar
hinted he may charge for the
calendar in the future, if the board
of governors approves.
Senate rejected a motion from
anthropology professor Cyril
Belshaw that deans report to
senate on any changes they have
made in students' marks or any
students that they have given
special consideration to in the
granting of degrees.
Several deans said they alone
rarely change marks or
requirements because such
decisions are made by the faculty.
Byl gave notice of motion for a
senate request to form a joint
senate-board committee to make a
recommendation to the University
Endowment Lands study team,
which will decide on the future of
the UEL.

THE        UBYSSEY

Tough pigskin battle Saturday
By TOM BARNES
The Thunderbird football team
will be out to capture a portion of
first place in the Western Intercollegiate Football League
when it takes on the University of
Manitoba Bisons Saturday.
Last season the Bisons took over
the 'Birds basement suite in the
WIFL, struggling to a dismal 1-7
record.
The 'Birds can take little encouragement from this as UBC
coach Frank Smith rates the
Bisons the most improved team in
the league.
Manitoba clearly served notice
of this in its season opener against
the defending league champion
University of Calgary Dinosaurs.
The Dinos needed a single on the
last play of the game to eke out a
14-13 win.
Running back John Nelson and
quarterback Bert Harden key a
Manitoba offense that is potentially explosive. Defensively the
Bisons have an outstanding line
backer in Bernie Morrison.
Smith thinks the Birds are going
to have to get another big game out
of their defence and more consistent performance from the
offence if they are going to win.
Last week the defence was the
key to UBC's 20-13 victory over the
University of Alberta Golden
Bears. However, two key injuries
have hit important members of the
unit.
Defensive lineman John
Biggerstaff is gone for the season
as a result of a knee injury suffered
late in the first half. He underwent
surgery Thursday.
Middle linebacker Mike McKay-
Dunn suffered a mild concussion
and is listed as a doubtful starter.
If McKay-Dunn does play he will
likely share duties with Al Cave.
Cave is a converted offensive
lineman who took over for McKay-
Dunn in the second half against
Alberta and did a commendable
job.
Rod Williamson, a first year man
from the Surrey Rams, will fill in
for Biggerstaff. Williamson is 6'3",
220 pounds.
Smith will probably start last
year's all-conference quarterback
Dan Smith. However it is almost a
sure bet that backup Greg Gardiner will see his share of action
too.
It has been Gardiner who has
come in to generate most of the
points for the 'Birds in their last
two games. He has scored all four
touchdowns for the 'Birds this
year.
PANGO-PANGO (UNS) —
Pangolan riot police today were
called upon to quell several
thousand revolting vermillion
blorgs.
The blorgs had occupied the
sprawling complex that houses the
local rag and depository of truth
the Daily Blah, and were holding
as hostage managing-editor
Menling Krutz.
There is no doubt that Smith is
anxious to see the scoring spread
around a bit. The key to this is a
consistent offence and the key to
the offence is the passing game.
One thing that is going to
facilitate the aerial attack is the
return of tight end Evan Jones.
Jones who was all-conference last
year, missed the Alberta game
with a wrenched shoulder.
Hello sports fans
The Ubyssey needs sports writers. Desperately.
And we especially need people to cover women's sports. Women's
sports haven't been covered adequately on this campus for a long time. In
fact, they've hardly been covered at all, and it sure would be nice if they
were.
In fact, if all you sports fans out there want to see any sports covered at
all in this paper, you'll have to come and write about them.
Because we don't have any full-time permanent sports staffers this
year.
Sports stories don't write themselves. If you want to write them, come
to SUB 241K for beer at noon Friday and talk to us, or come any Monday,
Wednesday, or Thursday at noon.

Smith is also high on the
potential of wide receiver Tom
Riemer. He says Riemer has a
good hand and good speed and
rates him as one of the best
athletes on the team.
Game time will be 2 p.m. at
Thunderbird Stadium. As the
weather looks as if it is going to
co-operate a record crowd is likely
for the game.
It is not known at this time
whether television station CKVU
will be televising the game with a
delayed broadcast on Sunday as it
did last week.
Listen for an announcement
during the game.
In the other WIFL game
Saturday, the University of
Saskatchewan Huskies will meet
the Golden Bears in Edmonton.
Calgary has the bye.
