 Arts students blast Kenny
Arts dean Doug Kenny came in for further criticism from the arts
undergraduate society Monday for his handling of student representation on faculty committees.
Numerous speakers at a meeting held to discuss AUS strategy in
further dealings with Kenny and faculty members over the matter
questioned Kenny's conduct on the issue.
Wednesday night at senate Kenny proposed students only be allowed
4.89 per cent representation on faculty committees, just below the
minimum five per cent set down in senate guidelines.
Kenny also asked senate to allow the registrar rather than the AUS
i to handle voting procedure and to
exclude  first   and   second   year
students   from   serving   on   the
, committees.
The motion was referred to a
future senate meeting because
midnight adjournment interrupted
discussion on the matter.
Said AUS president Bill Moen:
"Our primary objection is the
registrar's handling of the election.
It would result in a mail ballot
where the department would mail
out the list of majors and honors
students for nomination to every
student in the department.
"Nominees with the most support would then appear on the
ballot," he said.
"However the result of this
system is that student representatives from each department
would not be aware of students'
desires or feelings and therefore
have no responsibility to them,"
said Moen.
"Irresponsibility is what Dean
Kenny wants," charged anthropology union president Barbara Heayman/ "In this way
Kenny avoids strong vocal
representation from politically-
aware members of the department. Since the AUS is noted for
this and it is excluded from being
represented nobody will rock the
Both Heayman and Moen said
they wanted to see Kenny's
proposal referred back to the
faculty for more study and
hopefully reconsideration.
"The AUS proposals are not
radical, all follow senate
guidelines and have been accepted
by other faculties," Heayman said.
"It is important faculty and
students work together as in other
faculties instead of opposing each
other," she said.
"According to Kenny it shouldn't
do any good to have the report
referred back to the faculty since it
was the decision of the faculty. But
this isn't true," said Heayman.
"I'd like a lot of students getting
involved because disinterest is
what Kenny is counting on to push
his reactionary forms  through."
Moen charged Kenny had
stacked the arts faculty committee, chaired by history
professor Margaret Prang, with

Profs ignore Kenny memo
Arts dean Doug Kenny has
recently issued a memorandum
asking department heads not to
schedule essays instead of exams
or in-class exams with a due date
during the beginning of December.
However some professors are
not complying with this suggestion.
Assistant arts dean Donald
Soule said Monday the request
was made because many students
are finding they have a great
number of exams and essays due in
the last two weeks before the
regular exam period.
It is unfair to give them this
much work when they should be
studying for the regular exams, he
told The Ubyssey.
Soule said he could not release
the memo because it was addressed only to department heads
but said it specifically asks profs
not to require assignments instead
of exams just before the exam
Some courses in the arts faculty
have assignments of this kind
required during the beginning of
In fine arts 125, a take-home
exam   is  due  Dec.  6.   Frances
Robinson, who teaches the course
said a later due date would create
problems for exam markers.
"I haven't heard about the
memorandum," she said. "But it
would be difficult with a class the
size of this one to mark all the
assays if we get them in later than
Dec. 6."
She said a class the size of fine
arts 125 created problems and
there was no other alternative.
Several students, though, are
annoyed at the work load imposed
on them and expressed doubts as to
whether they would be able to turn
It's a man's world—Wallace
Women have more concern for human
values and their growing influence in the
world will make it a more human world,
Canada's only woman university president
said Monday.
Sister Catherine Wallace has been
characterized as a representative of the new
wave of the Roman Catholic church but she
calls herself "this thing which I am and which
I have been becoming all my life."
As well as being Canada's only woman
university president she is the first woman
director on the Board of the Association of
Universities and Colleges of Canada, an
administrator on numerous boards and
commissions dealing with the status of
women and education, holder of four
honorary degrees and the Order of Canada's
Medal of Service.
"Because women have a different life
pattern what we bring is a different
prospective," she said.
"The dilemma I've had is that most of the
things I participate in are a man's world and
it means coming in as a woman. And I think
what's going to happen is women will participate on their own terms.
"I wonder, how a married woman could
have the career I have had if she has family
obligations," Wallace said at the press
"I think we have to have another suffragette movement.
"We needn't call it that. It's all going to be
based on the equality in marriage that makes
it possible for (women to participate in
"The whole thing about equality in
marriage is that parents are responsible for
children, not the mother," she said.
Wallace belongs to a congregation but
receives no orders from them and so is free to
do her own work.
She said she doesn't feel protected by the
"I don't like to use the word protection. I
think protection prevents risk and risk not
being present prevents a large degree of
"Becoming a (university) president means
being at the call of the university and
society," she said.
Mount Saint Vincent was originally a
Catholic women's college and although not
officially co-educational, since Wallace took
over the presidency male applicants have
been accepted, she said.
The students who go to St. Vincent live in a
real world, not a Catholic ghetto, Wallace
"If I were in the United States right now I'd
want to teach in the public schools," she said,
adding that if she taught in a separate school
she would .want to be sure it was integrated
into society.
"I think Canada's lucky because Canada
hasn't grown up yet," Wallace said.
"I think it is of great value for us to have the
U.S. beside us because they are ahead of us
and they make th mistakes and then we don't
do those things unless we're fools."
Recently Wallace took part in a Canadian
bishops' commission on the role of women in
the church.
The commission dealt with women in the
hierarchy of the church as well as in everyday
life, she said.
"It's not very different from looking at
women in society. The same kinds of attitudes, the same kinds of prejudices are
present, but with a different bias."

"How can I ever write this darn
thing in time?" said one student.
"People with a full work load like
me do appreciate the validity of
Kenny's memorandum. There
seems to be a discrepancy in fine
Another student also said he
would find it difficult to do the
"You see, I write for The
Ubyssey," he said. "It's difficult to
write news stories such as this and
write essays at the same time."
A third student said she found
assignments due in the beginning
of December unfair, though,
having to do the work during
exams would be equally hard.
There, are other courses where
in-class and take-home exams are
required at this time.
Asian Studies professor Rene
Goldman has assigned an exam to
be written Dec. 4.
"It's only a brief identification
test," he said. "I wouldn't really
call it an exam. I'll ask my classes
tomorrow if they want to write it in
January, perhaps as a mid-term."
About 10 members and supporters of the Chilean solidarity
committee were arrested Monday

Those arrested were charged
with common assault and are
scheduled to appear in provincial
court Wednesday.
The group occupied the office for
the second time in as many weeks

Women actualize ideals
From page 1
In the meetings the women are
trying to actualize the ideals of the
church which professes not to
discriminate on the basis of sex,
Wallace said.
They want to establish the
particular dilemmas of Catholic
women in a secular society, she
"We make no statements of
problems. We make an effort to
establish some sort of grass roots
meeting to discuss what is a value
to women and what is a dilemma."
The purpose of the meetings is to
allow women to come to terms with
themselves and rather than give
answers the women are content to
let people ask their own questions,
Wallace said.
"It's just the teaching method,
really," she said.
Wallace said two bishops were
present at the commission meeting
but didn't interfere with the
"I found them so-o-o real and so
in touch. And they were never
"I would say we were very
honest. I was tired when I went
there and when you're tired and
people give you a drink of gin you
tend to say more of what you think.
"I found (the meeting) a thing of
value. A human thing of value."
Wallace also praised the federal
status of women report.
"It's a very impressive report,"
she said. "It's wisdom. It's not just
pragmatic, legal kind of thinking."
Wallace mentioned as two of the
important things in the report, the

During Monday's meeting

faculty," said Moen. "Therefore

Zionism overshadows imperialism
The international Zionist conspiracy has replaced U.S. imperialism as a favorite theme in
Soviet propaganda, UBC political
science professor Paul Marantz
said in the SUB clubs lounge
In a brief talk entitled The Soviet
Union and the Middle East:
Prospects for Peace, Marantz said
improvement of relations between
the Soviet Union and the United
States has caused official Soviet
foreign policy to be directed
against Israeli aggression instead
of its previous stress on U.S. imperialism.
"In the closed, somewhat oppressive society of the Soviet
Union, it is useful to have some sort
of external threat," Marantz said.
"Now it is the international Zionist
Marantz said the threat was
expressed by the Soviet press in
what he called unclear, "nebulous
terms worse than in previous
years,"  and basically links  im
perialists and billionaires together
in a centralized conspiracy.
Tracing the Soviet Union's involvement in the middle east from
its arms deal with Egypt in 1955 to
its severing diplomatic relations
with Israel during the 1967 crisis,
Marantz noted Soviet influence
increasing in the Middle East with
the decline of western influence.
What occurred then, he said, was
an eventual concentration on
relations with the west.
"When the Soviets broke off
relations with Israel, they forced
all the eastern European satellites,
except Rumania, to follow suit," he
said. "These included those small
countries who likened Israel's
position to their own, such as
"What the Soviet press says in its
articles and political cartoons is
not too different from Nazi anti-
semitism," Marantz said. "But
although the papers attack the
Zionists, they have never advocated   the   destruction   of  the
Jewish race nor failed to recognize    over   relations   with   the   west,
Israel as a nation." Marantz       mentioned       their

Pizzas replace hair
in SUB shop switch
The smell of pizza will wend its way through the SUB basement next
month following an Alma Mater Society council decision Wednesday
night to give the barbershop currently occupying space their one month
The 642 square foot floor space will now be rented to a pizza shop.
Councillors felt the barbershop was not providing sufficent service for
"A food service would serve students better than a barbershop,"
AMS co-ordinator Joanne Lindsay told The Ubyssey.
The barbershop currently pays to the AMS 13 per cent of its gross
earnings, which amounts to about $135 a month.
Lindsay said the SUB management committee had received offers
from several firms for the space and the highest bid was made by
Milano Industria Colciara Ltd., the same firm which has been selling
pizzas in the Pit.
Council instructed the building manager to negotiate a lease with
this firm. It will pay $7 per square foot per year, more than twice as
much as the barbershop now pays.
In other business council received a report by nursing representative
Pemme Muir, on the results of a conference of the Association of
Universities and Colleges in Canada held two weeks ago in Ottawa.
Muir said an organization called the Western Student Alliance had
been planned at this meeting. It will serve to co-ordinate information on
the various services which schools in western Canada provide. Information on services will be put into a computer bank and made accessible to other universities, she said.
"We'll have quick expedient contact this way," she said. "I see it as
a good way to get communication established."
Muir said there will be a January conference in Saskatoon to set up
the organization.
Council also voted to receive a presentation by education rep Roger
Gosselin to hold the spring AMS election earlier, since many education
students are away doing their February practicum in schools when the
elections are held.
It was decided since many council members were absent to wait for
dicsussion of this topic till next week.
Gosselin said in his report education students involved in practicum
do not have the opportunity of running for offices and do not have a
chance to hear candidates. They cannot appear at classes to discuss
issues and cannot be present at all-candidates meetings.
The report said there are 3,000 education students and if the AMS is
to be relevant it cannot isolate one of its major political functions of the
year from its members.
Mamooks re-opens
Mamooks, the student poster-making club has re-started its service
thanks to an $800 grant in the recently-approved Alma Mater Society
SUB building manager Graeme Vance said Monday the decision to
close the organization down last year was made because the AMS would
have needed to hire someone to police the organization..
The student-run organization makes posters and signs to publicize
campus events for university societies. These posters have been paid
for by the societies.
AMS treasurer John Wilson said Monday the $800 would be used to
hire a part-time employee to aid students get the organization back in
The employee would also serve to administer the supplies to the
students working in Mamooks. Part of the money would also cover cost
of materials, Wilson said.
Vance said he believes the organizattion can become self-sufficient
and thus the AMS could provide an expensive facility so students will be
able to earn some money working part-time.
Currently, Vance said, students don't appear interested in working
for Mamooks. Also, he said he is finding it difficult to hire the part-time
employee. However, he said he expects the organization will be functioning by the beginning of the new year.

"The Soviet Union would not try
to jeopardize their alliance with
the Arab states by imposing upon
them a treaty they do not want,"
Marantz said. "And they have left
the diplomatic initiative to the
U.S., while remaining closely
wedded to the Arab cause.
"But the balance of power in the
Middle East is liable to cause the
Soviets to block a settlement."
Raising the question on whether
the Soviet Union would take the
initiative to impose a settlement of
no significant advantage to either
side, Marantz said such an imposition if successful would increase the Soviet Union's
bargaining power. He also said the
Soviets' fear of harming relations
with the west had a restraining
effect on them.
"Every time the Soviets put their
position on the line when there is a
conflict, they suffer a setback in
relations with the west," he said.
He also discussed the great cost of
supporting the Arab states
militarily and economically, and.
the reduced likelihood of the
Soviets gaining any Arab
"As with their failure to secure
Indonesia, Nigeria and Ghana as
satellites, so the Soviets have not
been able to exert any great influence upon the Sudan, Libya, and
Egypt," Marantz said. "Oil politics
is also an important factor," he
said. "The Soviet Union is the
world's second greatest oil
producer, producing half as much
as it needs, and it both imports oil
from the middle east and exports
its own oil.
Although not dependent on the oil
from the Middle East, the Soviet
Union does import§it because it is
much more accessible than the
mail oil source in Siberia.
"If Israel gets to the point where
it has nuclear weapons, the Arab
states will put pressure on the
Soviet Union to furnish them with
nuclear weapons as well. The
Soviet Union does not want them to
have these weapons," he said.
Court positions to be filled
'■*> i*&?
The four positions currently unfilled on the Alma
Mater Society student court will be filled from applications to be reviewed at the AMS council meeting
The court is being convened to rule on the Georgia
Straight dispute.
The court now has three law students and four
more students from any faculty still must be appointed. The student council selection committee will
meet Wednesday to make recommendations to
student council AMS president Brian Loomes said
The student court is scheduled to meet Thursday
to hear arguments on the confiscation of the Straight
by the AMS Oct. 4. Third year law students Rick
Ballantyne and Randy Zien will argue the case for the
Straight and the B.C. Civil Liberties Association,
which is backing the Vancouver underground
In a press release Monday BCCLA president Reg
Robson said: "Our association is not taking sides in
the circulation battle between The Ubyssey and the
Straight but we are concerned about whether a
private organization can take unto itself the authority
to summarily deny the right of a competing
newspaper to be distributed in a public place."
The B.C.C.L.A. case will be based on two grounds:
Firstly that "the AMS has no authority to regulate the
activities of non-students on campus." Only the
Board of Governors has this power, claims the BCCLA brief.
Secondly, "the action in prohibiting the free
distribution of the Straight conflicts with the object of
the AMS to advance the cause of higher learning in
the province of B.C."
The brief further states "the section of the AMS
bylaws which was used by AMS to justify its action is
unconstitutional." The bylaw is dispute is AMS bylaw
number 12, section three which states no member of
the AMS shall "sell or dispose of any publications or
advertisements on the campus" without first getting
permission of the co-ordinator of activities.
The Ubyssey interviewed Robson after noticing
the AMS constitution section six subsection E
states:" No judgment of the court. . . shall be enforceable against any person or Alma Mater Society
organization adjudged guilty until it is ratified by a
majority vote of students' council."
Robson said: "We don't care very much if the
student court decides against us."
"We're really asking for a declaration one way or
another, he said. But if we win, we hope that student
council won't pull a Nixon on us."
Robson said his group had tried to get AMS to
bring this jurisdictional matter to the student court
rather than the BCCLA but said they wouldn't.
When approached by The Ubyssey for their legal
opinions, a number of students and faculty in law felt
it was a complicated constitutional question which
the student court might not be able to untangle.
It's possibly beyond the jurisdiction of the court
and the Board of Governors or even the provincial
courts will have to be called in to decide, said one law
By Monday evening only six applications for the
positions on the court had been received. They are:

Let it be
On Wednesday all UBC students, faculty, staff,
administration hacks and general hangers on get to vote on
how the University Endowment Lands should be used.
It is a perfect opportunity for the people out here to
see if the New Democratic Party is serious in its frequent
calls for feedback from the people.
More importantly it might help nip in the bud the
government's obvious plans to build low-cost housing on the
We thirlk voters should indicate they would prefer the
lands developed for park and recreational purposes, along
the lines of Stanley Park, which would benefit all the people
of Vancouver.
We urge this, while granting the existence of a
Vancouver-wide housing crisis of enormous proportions. We
just don't think plowing up the endowment lands for
housing is anything but a temporary piece-meal solution
which will irreparably damage one of the few remaining
parklands in the Greater Vancouver area. •
At best Nicholson's scheme, if it works — and that is
dubious — will create one year's respite before the next
housing crisis hits us.
At worst it will create a typical alienating public
housing development, more nefariously known as "a
project", which will please no one including those poor
souls who have to live in it for lack of a better place.
At the same time any housing project would increase
problems in the already over-crowded West Point
Grey-Dunbar area while gobbling up a large, chunk of green
Nicolson is wrong to have cast around for the most
immediately obvious solution — take the land from the
academics — to a very difficult problem. He will have to
admit that there are no easy solutions.
The real problem (you ready) is that Vancouver has
only so much land and its facilities are already strapped by
over population.
If the NDP is serious about doing something to solve
that problem, then it should introduce a radical no-growth
program to decentralize Vancouver.
Let's see them spend the money on the UEL housing
proposal in Tofino or Grand Forks. Let's see them build
their snazzy government buildings or insurance headquarters
in Kamloops or Prince Rupert. Let's see them pour money
into creating jobs in Fort St. John or Chilliwack.
There is no excuse for centralization. It is time this
government realized centralization is unhealthy; mentally,
socially, economically, and physically, for any one,
regardless of good intentions, to participate in the great
campaign to cram as many people as possible into the
already bursting-at-the seams city of Vancouver.
We'd like to reply to the shoddy
collection of lies (errors!?) contained in Gluska's letter (The
Ubyssey, Nov. 15) in order to dispel
the confusion he may have created.
First of all, we've never even
heard of this Gluska, so we're not
sure where he got his ideas, but his
statements about how often we
were in our offices are simply lies.

when it (the AMS) was incorporated in order to float a bond
issue (at students' expense) to
build a university gymnasium.
But, it doesn't give rise to any
organizing to change education
and the University as a whole. We
think the most important work
we've done is characterized by last
week's program in SUB on the
political economy and stage of
revolution in Canada. It's the
clarification of political questions
which will have the most far
reaching effects for students.
As for the $1,400 mistake in the
budget, Gluska still doesn't have
his fact right. The budget was not
balanced by taking money from
intramurals as he suggests. Instead, Council made up the money
by not approving the proposed new
business machine for the office.
It's certainly true that the
amount of money left over after
administrative costs for undergrad
societies doesn't amount to much,
but that's not, strictly speaking, a
result of AMS hierarchy blunders.
It's a consequence of the overall
AMS structure and functions as
pointed out in recent Ubyssey
editorials. Which all goes back to
1925/26 as we've mentioned.
In and around the AMS there are
both people who have entrenched
themselves in various areas and
people who are serious about
serving the students.
But, our own relatively brief
experience in the AMS plus what
we've learned from looking into
various problems, i.e. bookstore,
Recreation UBC, residence rent-
hikes and student representation
have led us to see that the AMS has
never solved students' problems
but has added to them if anything.
At best, it provides diversions.
We are more convinced than
ever of the necessity for discussion
by students of political questions
like education, work, and politics
in Canada and the development of
a strategy for change.

Surely there are sufficient
crucial issues facing the university
environment and deserving of
recognition on the hallowed pages
of The Ubyssey, to prevent the
appearance of such manifestations
of a corrupt mind.

We are sorry that Ron Campbell
(The Ubyssey, Nov. 16) finds the
reference of the ad ambiguous
which we ran last week — the map
of the Middle East with the caption
"A good name is better than
precious oil: ask the Dutch".
We are also sorry that he did not
come to us with his question when
the ad appeared.
We felt that it was an obvious
reference not to any lack of moral
stance on the part of the
Netherlands but, on the contrary, a
compliment. The courageous stand
of the Netherlands' people and
government against the Arab oil
boycott of Europe, in an attempt to
force submission to their policies,
is well-known. The Dutch resisted
Nazi aggression in World War II
and the enforced deportation of its
Jewish population. They again
have showed their moral courage
in resisting a different, but no less
pernicious, aggression.
This is the point the ad wished to
make. They have chosen moral
stand above immediate personal
gratification. We wish other
nations would follow their lead.
We expressed our thanks to the
vice consul of the Netherlands here
in Vancouver. We have in the office
a letter from him, thanking us for
our gratitude to his country. Mr.
Campbell is welcome to come in
and see us and the letter any day of
the school week after 10 a.m.

I am writing in support of L.J.
Street (The Ubyssey, Nov. 16) in
his vehement protest against your
front page article proudly
proclaiming the consummation of
the royal weeding.
Such mudslinging tactics as
those employed by your reporter
serve only as a means for the
defecation of a perverted mind and
do little to enhance your credibility
as a newspaper.
I wish to vigorously protest the
recent proposal to take over the
undeveloped areas of the
University Endowment Lands at
Point Grey for a housing project no
matter what the proposed quality
of housing will be. I think that this
land should be left as it is, a
pleasant undeveloped wooded
While I am aware of the continually increasing high cost of
housing in the Greater Vancouver
area, I can see no logic in the
suggestion that building houses on
this land will in any way decrease
the costs of housing any more than
more freeways permanently solve
traffic problems. This proposal to
indiscriminantly make more
houses available to the point of
saturation, will inevitably lead to a
city completely covered with
buildings and completely lacking
in much or any open or wooded
parklands so necessary for
recreational purposes.
As fewer and fewer open tracts
of land are left in the city, it seems
logical that a halt will be called
now to this conversion in land use,
rather than when the city is environmentally ruined by trying to
meet an inevitably insatiable
demand for housing.
If you have ever had the opportunity to walk along the many
trails in these woods, you will find
that they offer a very pleasant and
necessary temporary escape from
city life and sounds, and that many
people make use of them.
Over a period of years several
open tracts of land in this city have
been all or partially lost to housing
projects, with the politicians
suggesting that this new tax source
will provide necessary additional
revenues  for  running   the  city.
If, as I have assumed, these
municipal taxes are assessed to
meet the costs of providing services and amenities, it seems that
undeveloped land requiring little
or no maintenance costs probably
are preferrable to developed land
with sustained and escalating
maintenance costs.
The geography of the city of
Vancouver does provide access
difficulties for the people of the city
to get to Stanley Park, which is a
peninsula on a peninsula. Point
Grey is much more accessible and
can provide the features of an
undeveloped wooded area. People
use it regularly and I for one want
it to remain as it is.
All successful machines, devices
and organizations are a skilful
compromise that have an optimum
size. This applies to a city also, and
I think that there is plenty of
evidence in North America and

Long wait for beer over
as new Pit opens in SUB
Cold" beer!
Cold, bubbly beer!
UBC students have waited years
tor a decent place to quaff a few
cold ones — now they have it.
The new Pit, officially opened
Monday night by numerous bigwigs, former Alma Mater Society
hacks and the Ubyssey staff, began
on AMS planning boards as a
"senior student lounge" way back
when the AMS was still centred in
Brock Hall.
In September, 1971, the Human
Government executive announced
the Pit could be opened in
December of that year along with
an alternative food service.
But the plan needed student
Students, normally sqeamish
about churning out their money for
projects fuzzy-minded AMS empire builders have thought up,
voted overwhelmingly for the
Of course, as every campus beer
drinker knows, students had to
continue using the games room in
SUB up to last week.
Work on the new Pit finally
started last April. The place was
supposed to be opened for September, but labor problems
delayed the delivery of furnishings
and other materials and the installation of air conditioning
equipment, which, incidentally
clears the air every four minutes.
This ain't the Cecil!
The more than $200,000 in funds
for the Pit came from the SUB
reserve fund, an AMS fund
specifically designated for building
In terms of construction
requirements, money was needed
for the demolition of a block wall in
the SUB basement behind the
Thunderbird Shop, installation of
new concrete stairs and well,
concrete slabs for mechanical
equipment, cutting and patching
and new exits.
A new air conditioning and
exhaust system, independent of
SUB, had to be installed. New
plumbing was put in. New electrical appliances were installed —
all in what was an empty, dark
• The watering hole is smartly
furnished with a real wooden-
floored pit in the middle. A long
bar, backed by a huge walk-in
cooler with everybody's favorite
brand, lines two walls. The ventilation shafts, constructed to look
like pillars, are covered with
wallpaper designed from old

tops, vinyl wall covering, chairs
and part of the sound system didn't
show up on time because of the
national rail strike.
The chairs, built in Montreal,
were due to arrive Aug. 17.
Building manager Graeme
Vance, who has lived with the
project since its conception, said
the only equipment which could be
bought locally was cast-iron bases
for the tables.
A strike by the pipefitters union
delayed the installation of $45,000
worth of ventilation controls.
The Pit can currently only sell
bottled beer_ Patrons can buy five
tokens for $2.
Imported beer costs 80 cents a
bottle; cider 50 cents.
The Pit will operate Tuesdays,
Wednesdays, Thursdays and
Fridays from 4 p.m. to 11:30 p.m.
It will also be open Saturday
nights with live entertainment for
which a cover charge will be
levied. Dancing space, although
not great, is about the same as any
small club downtown.
All you need is your AMS card
and a token, so enjoy — it's ours.

R.J. Sanders
I am reviewing the Working
Paper on University Governance
in British Columbia excreted by
the Bremer" Commission. As was
reported, it certainly has a
peculiar aroma to it — that of
archaic shit.
Paragraphs 8 and 12 of Specific
Preliminary Proposals: The Board
of Governors speak of the logic of
the trustor-trustee relationship.
Since few copies of this pamphlet
have been circulated, allow me to
quote them at length:
"8. The function of boards of
governors, strictly interpreted, is
to act as public trustees on behalf
of the crown — the trustor, and to
serve the university — the
beneficiary of the trust. This is a
necessary function if universities
are to have the benefit of public
funds. The logic of the trustor-
trustee relationship requires that
trustees have no interest in the
trust beyond serving both trustor
and beneficiary. It also follows that
beneficiaries cannot be trustees.
"12. To those who would at this
point protest that by excluding
faculty and students from the
board, the committee is denying
the possibility of real democracy
on the campus, it should be pointed
out that the true nature of
democracy lies not in who sits
where but in the relationship of the
parts to each other and to the
whole. It is pointless to argue that
democracy demands the election
* of a monarch if in fact that
monarch is absolute; far better to
keep the crown hereditary and
invigorate the assembly.
Trusteeship is the principle
responsibility of the Board."
Once we penetrate the jargon we
at once see the validity of this
position ... but only if we are
talking about conditions that
existed before the industrial
revolution, or still more valid,
before the Magna Carta. It is
evident that the efficacy of the
board is no more than that of the
concept of a king.
Surely a republic is the society of
rational men. O.K., so we live in a
place called British Columbia this
should not and does not mean we
are so provincial or parochial in
our thinking as to assume some
sort of obsolete power structure is
of any use to us in organizing our
collective conscious energies effectively.
We all are our own trustees and
trustors — we beneficiaries all pay
taxes. The dichotomies made
between public and private are
useful, but fundamentally these
differentiations are fatuous. Trust
is an omniphenomenum. To say
that the entire society must be
changed is precisely the point.
"It was the Duff-Derdahl
commission that in 1966 pointed out
for those who had eyes to see that
the real locus of power on the
campus was the Senate." Our
committee on university governance recommends "each senate
would consist of 25 per cent administration, 25 per cent students
and 50 per cent faculty members."
Underlying this statement is the
horrendous assumption that the
persons whom we label faculty or
administration are not students. If
this is true, then these people have
stopped learning, and hence should
not even be at a university for this
is a place of advanced learning.
Those people, if it were true they
had stopped learning, would be
incapable of making flexible
responses to new situations — and
in a world which has recently
elucidated the DNA code and the
nature of atomic energy, such
rigidity would soon prove fatal. If
future shock has become a
hackneyed phrase, this only goes to
prove the truth of the meaning of
the words. We all are, as long as we
are alive that is, students; and we
must be to stay alive. A democracy
of the intellect really has no viable
alternative at this stage of human
The unicameral senate, with
ancillary bodies, must be made up
100 per cent of students, with the
proviso that we realize the faculty
and administration are students
After all, the entire general staff
that man this institution, as a
beacon or conning tower, has as
their first responsibility to make
sure that our society can survive
for the maximum period of time.

JOHN BILLINGSLEY is being tackled by the Trojans in UBC's 12-6 rugby win Saturday at Thunderbird
Stadium. Preston Wiley, left, and Mel Reeves, right, look on during the first division. Miller Cup play. Reeves
scored all the Birds points in the second half on penalty kicks.
Memories haunt Brandon
Birds unbeaten
The UBC Thunderbirds and the Richmond Ramblers looked like
they were going to have a blazing finish to their Friday night exhibition
basketball game.
With just under two minutes to go, the Dogwood league Ramblers
were a mere six points behind and threatening. But at that point their
coach, George Alexander, gave the game away. As the play passed his
bench, Alexander said the wrong thing at the wrong decibel level and
referee George Siborne called a technical. Alexander protested by
starting a shoving match. Siborne retaliated by giving him two more
fouls and throwing him out of the game. Ralph Turner sank all three
free throws and the Birds had a nine-point lead and, for all practical
purposes, the game. Both teams went through the motions for the final
minute and 50 seconds and the final score was 92-80.
It was another ragged ending to what was easily the best game the
Birds have turned in this year. Although rather loosely played, the
game was a crowd-pleaser even if it wasn't a coach pleaser. Fast breaks
and long passes made the game wide open and high scoring, with the
lead changing possession almost as often as the ball.
The game was a battle of the big centres — 6'11" Mike MacKay and
6'5" Brent Watson, the Dogwood league's most valuable player and
scoring champion last year. Watson, who scored 31 points and ripped
down 14 rebounds against his taller opponent, was by far the toughest
check assigned to MacKay this year. MacKay scored 30 points and had
18 rebounds.
The Birds, even though outshot 92-69 from the floor, hit on 54
percent of their shots, compared to only 38 percent for the Ramblers.
Besides Watson and MacKay, other stars were Gary Smith with 24
points for Richmond and Ralph Turner with 23 point for UBC.

Memories of the previous period
of lethargic hockey vanished as the
Thunderbirds came from behind to
defeat the Brandon Bobcats 4-3
Friday night.
"Notice how we came alive when
we were down 3-2," said UBC
coach Bob Hindmarch. "Our
pride took over. Until that point we
lacked fire. Of course I'd prefer to
see that fire present for an entire
game,  exhibition or  otherwise."
It was Rich Longpre with 13
minutes gone in the third period
who scored the tying goal for the
Thunderbirds. Standing off to the
side of Brandon's net he swatted
Bob Murray's nebound past
Brandon goalie Larry Budzinski.
"Longpre is definitely a key
player for us," said Hindmarch,
who at various times has
designated each man on the
Thunderbird roster as a key
One minute remained in the
game when UBC's Bill Ennos
swooped in to can Bob Murray's
slapshot rebound for the winning
Yoshio Hoshino opened the
scoring by tapping in a perfact
Brian Debiasio pass at the seven
minute mark of the first period.
Two minutes later Keiji Ohsaki, set
free on a rink wide backhand pass
from Bill Ennos, made it 2-0 UBC.
"Two factors contributed to the
mid-game letdown. First, it was an
exhibition game. Second, we had a
two goal lead," said Hindmarch.
"It's natural to let up in that type of
And let up they did as Brandon
came back with three goals before
Longpre snapped the Birds out of
their narcolepsy with his tying
goal. Brian Boyle scored twice in
the second period for Brandon.
Larry Gillis added Brandon's final
goal early in the third set.
Perhaps the livliest event of the
game occurred in the second
period when UBC's Jim Lawrence
tried to poke the puck from the
glove of Larry Budzinski. The
Brandon goalie took offence at his
eagerness and lead the other five
Bobcat players in a mass attack on
Lawrence. An unflappable
Lawrence held them off and took
two Brandon players to the penalty
box with him.
Scoring 10 goals doesn't sound
like the way to put everybody to
sleep, does it?
Well, the most exciting thing
Saturday night might have been
the ice machine's collision with a
goalpost as the Thunderbirds beat
the University of Brandon 6-4 in a
strangely listless hockey contest.
Maybe it was the way the scoring
went. The Birds got three goals in
as many minutes in the first period
then added another in the second.
Everyone in the Winter Sports
Centre fell asleep, assured of
Then Brandon bunched three
goals together in the last period.
UBC right winger Ken Lemmen
finally woke up the silent arena
with a late short handed goal which
proved to be the winner.
UBC goalie Fred Masuch, who
shared the net with Ron Lefebvre,
said, "Brandon didn't play any
better in the third period than the
first two, but we played like shit.
Everyone just stood around and
when you do that anybody can
Bob Murray, Bill Gaston and
Chuck Carignan gave the Birds
their first period lead. Defenceman
Len Ircandia added the fourth,
while left winger Rich Longpre
tucked the last one in an empty net.

Hacks mourned
Ubyssey Society Editor
The Ubyssey regretfully announces the passage of hacks
Gordon Mullin and Christine Krawczyk into the unholy state of
matrimony. They are mourned by several long-time friends and
colleagues at the newspaper, some of whom were heard to
murmur "My God, it sets a horrible precedent, doesn't it,"
when told of the event.
Rumors had it the pair were united during a ceremony
Wednesday, attended by only a few bereaved relatives and a
huge stack of flowers, most of which wilted during the
ceremony. They honeymooned on Seymour Mountain.
Additional flowers are regretfully declined, but the couple
will accept donations to The Ubyssey beer fund. Both informed
different sets of staff members'privately during the week that
they think they'll need it.
