ELIZABETH HAY CP Corrcspondciil VENICE (CP) A group of Canadian architecture s I u- denls arc helping Venice tac- kle one of its most serious diminishing population. a group of first- and third-year students from the University of British Columbia's School of Archi- tecture came to Venice for field work. They were re- placed early, this year by a ABORTION PROTEST-Lorne Nysrrom (NDP-Yorkton- righf, and his wife Gayle, stop during a dem- onstration on Parliament Hill which protested Canada's abortion laws. College Students Restricted At Cafe By GARRY FAIRBAIHN SASKATOON (CP) -The generation gap at the Coach- man Restaurant in Market MaU shopping centre here is an imaginary it's no less real to the young people. Students from a nearby col- legiate are restricted to half the 80-seat restaurant, leaving the rest for adult shoppers. Eugene Clement, restaurant manager, refers to the policy as but says "our customers force us to do it." "They won't even come in Dying Woman Connected To Hog's Liver MOSCOW (Reuters) Sur- geonhere have saved the life of a seriously ill pregnant woman by connecting her to a hog's liver, the official Soviet news agency Tass reports. The operation was super- vised by Dr. Valery Shumakov, 38, at Moscow's Clinical and Experimental Surgery Insti- tute, Tass said, but it did not say when. The patient, identified only as Tamara K., developed a liver coma as the result of in- fectious hepatitis in the sixth month of pregnancy. The hog's liver took over from her own defective organ during surgery while an arti- fical kidney filtered her blood. The baby was lost but the patient now is in good health, Tass said. Seal Mail Chutes At Post Office MONTREAL (CP) Outside mail chutes on post office walls in the city will be locked shut a 5 p.m. and a weekends as preventive measure against bombings, a post office spokes- man said here. The order will remain in ef- fect that is, un- til the postal dispute which be- gan Feb. 2, is settled, the spokesman said in an inter- view. Sporadic incidents of violence have plagued local mail deliv- ery since mid-February. our place if it's full of stu- dents." He fears a large number of complaints from older shop- pers could lead to cancellation of the restaurant's lease. Even though half the adult tables may be unoccupied, students have to wait in line until a table on the other side is free. Adulte, however, can sit on the side open to stu- dents. No signs describe these reg- ulations and few adult patrons seem to realize they exist. Students are asked to leave alter about 20 minutes. Adult shoppers are also prone to dawdling, says Mr. Clement. RULE IS DISLIKED "S 0 m e t i m e s we let the grown-ups get away with it, but we shouldn't. We should be bold enough to tell them their time's up. The big- gest offenders are the mid- d 1 e -a g e d age group." The students dislike the reg- ulations, but appear disinc- lined to raise strenuous objec- tions. Wayne Mitchell, 16, helped in an unsuccessful at- tempt to organize a boycott of the restaurant. Waitresses began by telling students "this table is re- Wayne says, but now they simply say "This is the adult side." Nearby adult pa- trons rarely if ever notice since the waitresses "sort of whisper it at you." Mr. Clement feels the seat- ing policy "is working out good here" and could be cop- ied successfully by restaur- ants elsewhere. He intends to apply for space for a student- oriented restaurant as a bet- ter solution. .Until that is built, the adult-student distinction will stay, he says. "The two groups don't seem to be able to live together." GOOD NOSE PHILADELPHIA (A P) Tom McGinn, bounty hunter and dog trainer, says a good tracking dog must have the nose for his work. Good dogs for finding lost people or tracking down criminals, McGinn said, !'can come from any breed as long as they have the right membranes in their nose. Some dogs have more sensitive noses ban others and make good railers." number of second-year stu- dents. The visits wei'e instigated by the Venice Island of Studies, a private organiza- tion international in scope, which was set up to encour- age educational and research groups to pursue their studies in this Italian city. The constant decrease in the to run about 10 per cent yearly probably Venice's most serious problem, more press- ing than the gradual sinking of the island which causes sea water to wash over the great square before St. Mark's Ca- thedral with growing fre- quency every year. Moving spirit behind the idea of bringing Canadian ar- chitecture students here is Prof. Abraham Hogatnick, who went to Canada from Boston, joined UBC 11 years ago and now is a Canadian citizen. STUDIES CITY Prof. Rogatnick's concern with Venice dates back to the year of his. first visit 21 years ago. He was then a second- year student of architecture at Harvard University. About five years ago he began research work on the city and in 1866 spent a full year here on a Canada Coun- cil grant, doing research for a book on the history of the Pi- azza San Marco. Eventually lie became one of the founding members of the Venice Island of Studies. Closely associated with him is Prof. John Gaitanakis, who has worked closely with stu- dents. A third member of the quar- tet in charge is Prof. G. Mila- nesi, an Italian architect who married a girl from Halifax whom he met in Florence. He spent the first six months of the academic year teaching at UBC. and is spending part of the second term in Venice with, his Canadian students. Fourth member of the group is Henry Ciccone, a Vancouver architect who came to assist in the Venetian studies. All four now speak fluent Italian. AIDED BY GRANTS "It would have been impos- sible to undertake a venture of this scope without said Prof. Rogatnick. "The Venice Island of Studies gave us a grant of S10.000; a pri- vate architect in Vancouver gave us another for the purpose of printing our find- ings. Then, when certain peo- ple at UNESCO (the United Nations Educational, Scien- tific and Cultural Organiza- tion) heard what we had done on our own initiative, they generously helped us make the final ends meet by award- We also had our School of Architecture Workshop Fund, to which our students contrib- ute every year, as part of their fees, and which is nor- mally set aside for field trips and studies of this nature. That is how we have been able to keep students' expen- ses down to daily apiece, although actually it is costing over a day for their living expenses alone." The periodic inundation by the sea is primarily a prob- lem for engineers. The young graduates with BA or BSc. con- cerned with the best utiliza- tion of living space within tire city, in a way that will ensure the continued existence of Venice as a vital centre on the Adriatic. A JEWEL' Those in charge of the pro- ject contend there could be no finer place for a student of ar- chitecture to study. "Venice is a unique city, in every sense of the word." said Prof. Gaitanakis. "It is full of absurdities and paradoxes. It is like a Here you may find easily any living style you can think of." The students have pursued a program of meeting Vene- tians inside their own homes. They have been inside hundreds of apartments. With the aid of Italian-speaking members of the group, they have carried out innumerable interviews. The young Canadians have become accustomed to seeing apparently derelict dwellings, with crumbling outside walls, blossom into palaces inside, once they have crossed the threshold. They thus have learned to avoid drawing hasty conclusions. VOICES OPTIMISM i The two decaying areas under student inspection lie on the edges of Venice. For each, an eminent architect has de- signed a regenerative build- ing. A revolutionary hospital, de- scribed as a "house of was designed by the late Le Corbusier for the first district. The second regenerative building is to be a Congress Hall, designed by the Ameri- can architect Louis Kahn, for the public gardens in the Cas- tello district. One task of the young Cana- dian students is to analyse the possible effects on the sur- rounding areas of these pro- jected buildings. The Canadi- ans then will suggest how these areas may be encour- aged to respond to these vital new elements.
