 Reps quit selection group
Both students elected by acclamation to the arts dean selection committee have resigned their
Nancy Carter, a psychology
students representative on the arts
faculty council, resigned Thursday
after Alma Mater Society council
demanded she do so.
William Maes, a library students
rep on faculty council, also
resigned Thursday after the arts
undergraduate society executive
asked him to do so.
Council, at a special meeting
noon Thursday in the SUB conversation pit, also voted to back the
AUS in its bid to have the board of
governors reconsider the method
of electing students to sit on the
dean selection committee.
Council's motion demanding
Carter's resignation accuses her of
acting in a "treacherous mariner"
and of "wilfully relaying false
information" to the AUS, the
graduate student association, the
home       economics       student
association and the social work
student association.
The motion, moved by AUS
council rep Gerald deMontigny and
seconded by AUS council rep
Arlene Francis, also accuses
CArter, an AUS rep on student
council, of violating the decision of
the four groups by nominating
nerself as a candidate in the
election, to have been run by
registrar Jack Parnall.
A motion suggesting Carter
resign as a member of student
council and as psychology rep on
the arts faculty — also moved by
deMontigny and seconded by
Francis — was defeated in a roll-
call vote.
About 100 students watched as
deMontigny, Francis and other
AUS representatives called Carter
a liar when she attempted to explain her reasons for nominating
herself as a candidate.
But when asked if she wanted to
defend her actions during debate
on the two motions seeking her
resignation from the various
bodies she sits on, Carter said no.
During the debate, acting AUS
president Stew Savard reiterated
his belief that Carter, at an AUS
executive meeting Friday, misled
others to believe the AUS would be
allowed to conduct the election and
that nominations for an election
run by the registrar were no longer
After the meeting, Robert
Marris of anthropology-sociology
withdrew his nomination and
Carter nominated herself, leaving
only two reps as candidates to fill

10,000 "street-people'
now rumored for '76
A prediction that 3,000 radical
Japanese students will arrive at
UBC for the Habitat '76 conference
on urban problems has been
revised to 10,000 "street people"
from the U.S. and abroad.
A source close to a committee
investigating the conference said
Thursday members of the federal
host secretariat of the external
affairs department, and Vancouver arts council officials expect
as many as 10,000 unregistered
guests will appear on campus.
CBC producer Mike Crampton, a
member of the arts council committee investigating conference
planning, said last week that a
"senior civil service official" had
told him 3,000 radical Japanese
students were expected to arrive at

Two students to sit on UBC's 'diluted' BoG
Two students will sit in UBC's
board room for the first time in
history sometime in January 1975.
But as yet no one knows how
much effect their presence will
have on the way the university is
Last summer's Universities' Act
revision, which gave students,
faculty and non-academic staff
seats on the board for the first
time, also transferred many board
powers to the new B.C. universities
council and UBC's senate.
The diluted and enlarged board
once the main cog in the university's government — seems to be
becoming a secondary
organization which has more
ceremonial than practical importance.
While the board retains some
powers for non-academic decisionmaking, it is no longer the final
authority for what goes on within
the university's classrooms.
And the universities council
replaces the board as the direct
link between the university and
provincial government, which
distributes most of UBC's
operating and capital funds.
Some students welcome the
changes. To them, the old board
had a reputation of corporate
elitism practised by big business
But board members call
themselves "nice" people whose
main interests are the welfare of
the university and the people
working and learning within it.
Some current members' names
are familiar. Bread man Allan
McGavin and construction employers' negotiator Chuck Connaghan have board seats.
Others are less familiar but
equally powerful within the
province's political and economic
power system.
Richard Bibbs, who was the
board's representative for budget
negotiations with the provincial
government last year, is also an
executive vice-president of
MacMillan Bloedel.
Paul Plant is vice-president of R.
S. Plant, a major lumber
brokerage firm, as well as being
known as a major Liberal party
Others include lawyer Ben
Trevino, former Supreme Court
justice Thomas Dohm, a deposed
Vancouver , stock exchange
president, and Beverly Lecky of
the Alumni Association. They are
or represent powerful legal and
financial interests.
The NDP appointed B.C.
Federation of Labor researcher
Clive Lyttle to the board replacing
tough-minded provincial court
judge Les Bewley.
At least a few of these alumni
and business representatives will
stay on the board in January
although the government can now
legally kick off all the old members
and appoint six new ones to replace
The government has not yet
released details about exactly how
the new board will operate.
It likely will remain secretive to
some extent, but parts of its
meetings probably will be opened
to the press. An enlarged board
with representatives of special
interest groups other than business
and alumni also means "press
leaks" will be more likely.
For those who think in terms of
the board's awesome former
powers — it could veto every
academic decision and made every
financial one within the university
— the new board is likely to be a
The board still decides who will
be the university's president but is
restricted in practice to observing
recommendations of a student and
faculty selection committee.
The senate, formerly subservient to the board, now is
almost totally autonomous in areas
involving academic courses and
The board also loses its close
links to the provincial government.
The president and other administration officials now deal
with the universities council and
the council takes care of
negotiations with the provincial
education department.
But the board remains
responsible for the often controversial non-academic
operations of the university including building maintenance, the
bookstore and food services.
It is in these areas that students
for the first time will have power to
directly influence and make
decisions. Page 2

after the AMS council meeting,
said AUS executive members were

"During the executive meeting,
the usual thing happened," she told
The Ubyssey. "I felt completely
bombarded by Stewart, Gerald,
Robert, Linda Bartram of political
science and others.

They didn't hear what I had to
Carter said she told the
executive that Parnall had agreed
in a telephone conversation that

the AUS could conduct the election
if the nominations for candidates
would come from the 23 departmental reps on the arts faculty
"I -told the AUS that the
registrar's decision to leave the
election open was contingent upon
the AUS agreeing the nominees
would come from the 23 reps.
"Therefore when the executive
rejected running the election with
nominations coming from the 23
reps, that meant that what the
registrar had said about leaving
the election open was nullified,"
said Carter.
Parnall confirmed Thursday
that both Carter and Maes have
resigned their position on the
selection committee.
When asked what he thinks will
happen now, Parnall said the
board of governors will have to
review the whole matter.
"It must all go back to the
board," Parnall told The Ubyssey.
"Otherwise, we won't have any
student representation on the
committee, something the board
specifically asked for."
Parnall had originally interpreted a senate decision approving the committee structure to
mean that only the 23 reps on the
faculty council could run for the
selection committee and could vote
for the two students on the 10-
member committee.
He had asked the reps to decided
their choices at a meeting or by
mail ballot and set noon last
Friday as the closing time for
Savard assured AMS council
Thursday that the AUS will be able
to meet board members Tuesday
at their monthly meeting.
He told The Ubyssey that the
AUS executive will go ahead with
its plan to hold its own arts dean
selection committee elections
because the executive expects the
board to approve an AUS-
sponsored election.
Savard said he has received
nominations from Marris and
Bartram to run as candidates for
the two student positions on the
committee if and when an election
is held.
"We hope that a large number of
students — both reps and non-reps
— will submit their nominations
for the positions," he said.
In a letter to Parnall, Maes says
he resigned because he does not
feel the faculty reps have a
mandate to serve on the dean
selection committee.
He says he felt compelled to
withdraw his nomination "until
such time as a mandate is received
for each student representative to
the faculty of arts from their
respective departments and
schools, giving them the right to
serve on the search committee."

Health food sellers back in SUB
By JAKE van der KAMP
Two women who were evicted
from SUB by the RCMP last
Friday for selling health food
illegally were back again Thursday and they intend to stay.
They've written up a petition,
already signed by 50 students,
requesting the Alma Mater Society
to allow them to sell health food in
And although AMS executives
have threatened to charge them
with trespassing the vendors aren't
"I'm sure the AMS could get
police off to arrest us," said vendor
Trudy Hughes. "It all depends on
how they go about it."
"Last time the police were really
nice. They just told us the
regulations and said they couldn't
do anything about it."
"They acted sort of embarrassed
about it themselves. One of them
said he was into health foods."
Hughes was evicted from SUB
Friday because she doesn't have a
health certificate to sell the food
and because AMS executives said
she and the other vendor Sandra
Lingberg were competing with the
cafeteria operated by food services
and with the Delly in the SUB
AMS co-ordinator Ron Dumont,
who is responsible for SUB
management, said he was personally against eviction but was
compromised when AMS president
Gordon Blankstein told Hughes he
would call in the police.
"And if you make a threat like
that you've got to back it up," he
Dumont said he does not know
whether he would call police in a
second time.
Bookstore sale ends in giveaway
UBC's third Christmas book sale ended Thursday
with a literal giveaway of old texts and reference
Students and profs used ingenious methods to cart
away as many of the free or nearly free books as
Bookstore director Bob Smith said he wanted to get
rid of all his surplus stock and, after checking his
records, decided it made economic sense to give the
books away.
Smith's assistant, Don Donavan, told 15 sales
clerks when they arrived at work Thursday to unload
the books at "$5 for all you can carry."
Word spread and by 10:30 a.m. the Brock Hall
rooms were full of students gathering and stacking
books into boxes.
A history prof wheeled his van to the back of Brock
and carried 12 boxes to the truck in several trips.
"I'm buying these for a friend who has a bookstore
in the Fraser Valley," he said, as he stacked the last
of hundreds of books into the van.
Later in the day Smith asked the clerks to lower the
price to $1 perloadandat the end a "Free" sign went
Clerks had strategically removed expensive art
books from Brock the day before.
The books remaining were surplus texts accumulated more than three years ago and some
"distress sale" merchandise originating with eastern
publishers and book dealers.
He said the two women would be
charged with trespassing if he
Dumont said the AMS could be
sued if any of the health sandwiches sold turn out to be
However Hughes said Dumont's
objections are pointless.
She said the food she sells is
much healthier than anything sold
in the SUB cafeteria and is intended for only a limited number of
people who would not eat in the
cafeteria in any case.
Hughes admitted she has not
succeeded in getting a health
certificate because she cannot
meet some health requirements.
Those requirements demand
that she wash all utensils in three
stainless steel basins with water
heated to a certain temperature.
She said she does not have that
many sinks in her home where she
makes the sandwiches.
But she said these rules are
made for large restaurants which
prepare large quantities of food at
the same time.
Hughes said she uses only a knife
to put the sandwiches together.

Gorillas on, off screen rampage Civils
It was a day of stag films and
overflowing beer bottles Thursday
as end of term festivities infected
the civil engineering building.
About 20 senior gears giggled,
screamed, guzzled and belched as
they watched a circus gorilla and
two lesbians cavort on the screen
of the cloistered fourth-floor
seniors club.
The club is restricted to
engineering students at third year
level and above, whose antics are a
part of everyday life in civils,
unseen by most students.
Beer is the main ingredient of the
gear lifestyle, and the seniors club
floor sloshed with the stuff.
There was beer on the floor, beer
in people's hair and beer soaked
in shirts.
And there was beer in the fridge,
where the door never closed as
gears tore their eyes from the
porno film and reached for a bottle.
But the senior elite are apparently not alone in their habits.
Beer bottles and howling gears
were everywhere in the civils halls
and classrooms Thursday.
On the first floor, red-jackets
mopped and swept the floor,
pushing a strange liquid to the end
of the hallway and forming a lake
of broken beer bottles and soggy
toilet paper.
Sitting in the middle of the
puddle was a shattered toilet.
"Ah, somebody spilt some beer I
guess," a wet and bleary-eyed gear
said, leaning on his mop.
Inside a lecture hall, the source
of the garbage, more beer-soaked
gears plotted an end of semester
attack on the first-year gears.
"We gotta get 'em somehow, hit
'em when they're all together,"
one burly mopper said.
"Yeah, but we gotta pick the
right class," another said. "The
profs are dinks. They get pissed off
if we raid 'em more than two or
three times a year."
Next door in an anthropology
class, three beer-slugging gears
bitched to a prof about a paper they
had all just-flunked.
"This course is bullshit," one of
them said, his hair dripping on to a
soaked T-shirt. "I been here for
five years and I've never seen a
stupider course.
"If I fail I will be really pissed off
at you guys and I'll have to go over
your head."
Meanwhile   his   red-jacketed
friends leered at the prof smacking
their lips and slurping beer.
More gears sat in another lecture
hall, alone except for three attractive nursing students,
desperately trying to convince the
girls that engineers are just ordinary fun-loving people.
"Sure we like to have a good
time" one said. "Drinking, dancing, singing, things like that.
"Us guys take nice girls like you
out dancing and out to dinner."
The nurses did not look very
convinced by the bottle-sucking
Finally the gears went to class,
listening to lectures about temperature stress on bridges. But still
a drunken song echoed in the
hallways. "The sky is going to
clear up, so sit on my happy face!"
done by health regulations. We
only put it together."
She said she sells the food
because there are many people on
campus who want it and would
rather not eat elsewhere.
"We're not doing it for the
money. A $1 sandwich might sound
like a lot but we're not a big corporation. It's not a profit thing."
"And if they're worried the food
might be bad we'll get everyone
who buys it to sign a release saying
the AMS isn't responsible."
Hughes noted that students at
eastern Canadian universities
have forced their administrations
to make health food available in
AMS president Gordon
Blankstein said any food vendors
in SUB must have health certificates. He declined other

willing to allow Hughes to continue
selling her food if she gets a health
certificate and is willing to conform to any future SUB
management committee
He said he will not require her to
get prior permission from food
services and the Delly.
Hughes said if the AMS evicts
her again she will continue to sell
food outside SUB.

It is a misty moonlit night.
Group Captain Lesley Krueger walks the tarmac of Point Grey's
bomber air base, Boom-Boom Field. Her shoulders are stooped with the
heavy burden of responsibility, her face is draped with a veil of worry and
her bladder aches with concern, among other things. All in all it is an
attractive ensemble matching rather well with the Renaissance runways,
Byzantine bombs, Baroque billets and Social Credit calendars.
She gives a final glance into the deadly night sky where she must send
her boys, or, as she thinks of them, her boys, and the sky gives one back.
Then she enters the briefing room, passing by Lance Corporal Cedric Tetzel

secret meeting that night under the three-quarter ton lorry (truck—Ed.) in
the parking lot.
Inside the smoke filled room the crews, hardened by war, not to
mention lack of exercise and too much fatty food, cruelly relieve their
tension by pulling the wings off of Lt. Mark Buckshon, a liaison officer

Nancy: real
Having just been present at
Thursday's council meeting, I feel
I must make another statement
concerning the credibility and
veracity of arts rep Nancy Carter.
Firstly I would like to retract my
statement that she turned around
and nominated herself behind my
(and everybody else except the
registrar's) back after seeing me
by chance Saturday.
On Saturday she in fact told me
that my nomination was the only
one to date. In council Thursday, in
answer to my charges, she said
that she had nominated herself —
like myself — by telephone and not
by writing on Friday.
So she is an amnesiac. Can an
amnesiac be allowed to sit on such
vital committees as the arts dean
selection committee?
Or any other committee?

Rock and roll's here to stay but
Sha Na Na's super concert might
never come back.
Not after that embarrassing
display by gears and some hyper
students during the concert on
Wednesday night.
Sure, things like that are bound
to be attempted by a lot of attending dudes, drunk, dressed,
greased and ready to kick ass, but
who the hell wants to see four gears
standing in front of the performers
while the finale act is being performed?
It ruined a great concert.
But it wasn't the gears' fault.
Crowd control is a professional
task and the Alma Mater Society
(which I assumed to be in control)
should be held responsible if Sha

The stage should have been at
least four feet instead of one foot
off the ground.
There should have been better
organization of the guys in front of
the stage and better booze control
at the door.
Somebody wasn't thinking — but
then again, nobody ever does
around here and the probably
reason will be "Well, we never
expected something like that from
such a lovely and considerate
campus as we have here at UBC."
Too bad a great gig was marred
at UBC.

Bullshit, bullshit, bullshit. The
full-page ad that appeared in
Tuesday's issue deserves more
than a triple bullshit. The arts
undergraduate society displays in
this ad their sad misunderstanding
of student concern. One of the most
important points in the "Notice of
Election" is "We feel that we have
the overwhelming support of all
students over this issue of conducting and holding our elections."
Do you really have "the overwhelming support of all students?"
I suggest that you do not have
anything like an overwhelming
support. If you examine the
situation closely, I'll bet you'll find
that most students don't know what
an AUS is or what it can do; where •
it is or even have much interest in
it, let alone overwhelming support
of it.
I think you've made a grave
error in your approach to both the
election and the idea of an undergraduate society.  You mem
bers of the AUS "leadership"
ought to find out exactly where
your support lies. I know that this
is very difficult in a large
university and particularly so with
an arts population of 5,500. But
without that real support effectiveness will be nil.
I would give my full support to
both the AUS and the election if I

The following are the candidate's

Ubyssey Thursday. The two
missing candidates, Murray

and a hot flash to bring their
statements in, but none appeared.

I am currently enrolled in fourth
year sociology at the University of
British Columbia where my
specific area of interest is social
change. I first attended Vancouver
City College as a "mature" student
in 1970 after working for eight
years in the field of television.
I am applying to the school of
Graduate Studies this fall.
Since 1971 I have been actively
working through the Women's
Office at UBC on a non-credit
women's study programme which
I have helped plan, develop, coordinate and impliment.
I have been politically active in
matters concerning students since
last year when I was a member of
the Alma Mater Society's finance
committee. At present I am a
member of the Student Union
Building management committee.
I wish to see active student
participation at all levels of
decision making within the

Students on this campus are
short changed in several ways.
Basically my platform, and the
fundamental issues of the campaign are:
A shortage of on campus housing
at reasonable rates. Those of you
who were caught in the fiasco
earlier this year while looking for a
place to live will surely understand
the problem.
Even those who found accomodation can appreciate the
need to live close, or closer to the
Food services must be student
controlled. The inefficient
operation is making a profit off a
captive market with bad food.
Transportation on and off-
campus is difficult if not impossible.
The short-term solution is a
much improved local bus service.
Why does this campus pack up at
certain times? Studying has been
frustrated too many times by
locked buildings, inaccessible
equipment and non-existent services.
Lastly, effective representation
is an issue. How can you tell who
will represent your interests? The
answer is you can't — at least not
yet. However the election must be
based on what the candidates stand
for and who they are, not who they
say they are.
— David Coulson
"What dare he have the audacity
to run for office in his first year?
"Doesn't he know it takes years
to gain experience in order to be a
good politician?
"Take Gordon Blankstein for
example ..."
My name is John Gojevic and,
yes, I'm a first year student; but I
am a student just like you. A
student who is ashamed of the
disgusting state of politics at this
university and wants — no
demands — to see a change.
How well do you know the
workings   and  decisions   of   the
student council'' How well does
anybody? Except the experienced
hacks mat govern us already.
I see in this university a structural society consisting of two
classes: one for the average
student and one for our "fearless"
leaders, the politicians. I believe
its time for students to regain
control of the bodies that govern
them. Now is the time.
I am now running on any wishful
promises and important issues
because what you are going to elect
is a student representative. A
person who is going to represent
your wishes and not his room.
Choose the right one.
— John Gojevic
My main concern is that we
establish a strong and responsible
relationship to persuade the board
to respect the needs of students.
If our approach is positive, we
should easily convince the Board
that what is best for the students —
is also best for the university.
However, should we confront the
other thirteen members with an
inappropriate attitude such as:
"Let's reveal your assets", as
promised by two BoG candidates;
we will merely antagonize the
board, and further erode our
bargaining position for genuine
Our real fear should be that the
board will make major decisions in
the faculty club, and then merely
humour us at the meetings.
Why do we not have more
Canadian faculty who are
responsible to their undergraduate
students? I am certain that if more
emphasis were placed on student
evaluation of faculty, many faculty
attitudes would improve.
Why, with enrolment increases
predicted, housing shortages and
rents rapidly increasing in the city,
are we not immediately planning a
new residence-sponsored campus
Why are not the many administrative services on campus
better oriented to servicing
students, rather than their often
belligerent attitudes in regarding
us as second-class members of the
university community?
The basic answer is because
students have never been granted
proper priority, or the opportunity
to improve it.
We must ensure that bodies such
as the women's office, and our
student senators are well supported to help advance our best
interests in these areas.
I will work to ensure that
University money is used to our
optimum advantage in providing
student facilities and services.

The most important issue of this
election is which candidate can
provide the most effective
representation for the student
The two student members on the
board of governors must make the
board aware of student needs and
concerns, and of the consequences
of the board's actions.
The student representatives
must be sensitive to student
problems and capable of speaking
out sensibly, yet forcefully, on
behalf of the students.
If elected, I intend to "return to
the students": — I will publish a
monthly report describing the
activities of the board; I will announce and publicize open
meetings for interested students,

Krueger wonders how she will explain she must send them on a mission
meaning certain death, she wonders how she will explain that successful
destruction of this target will raise the .2 Bomb Group's sagging ratings but
mostly she wonders how she will explain how someone with a name like
Krueger could be a Group Captain in the Royal Air Force in 1942.
She looks at the war ravaged faces of innocent youths, like Lts. Stuart
L-yster, Sucha Singh, Peter Cummings, Carl Vesterback, Steve Morris and
Dan Miller and wonders how she can inform them of yet another
hell-in-the-sky, shell-shocked mission over enemy territory without
crushing tender spirits like Bernie Bischoff's or breaking their hearts.
Then inspiration comes and the light shines through the clouds mainly
because Lt. Sue Vohanka of the Polish Free Air Force — $2 on Saturdays
— stands in-the wings with cue cards.
"OK, you bastards," Krueger began, "you better hustle your little asses
out there tonight and ream the shit outta that target 'cause my bum's on
the line with Headquarters! Understand?
"Now, the targets for tonight are three dams in Germany's heavily
industrialized Rump Valley, the Gordon Beerstein Dam, the Robert Baillif
Dam and the Nathan Davidoslivovitz Dam.
"There's enough effluent behind these three blocks of concrete that
when ruptured, if you'll pardon the expression, they'll wash Germany right
out of the war!"
"The attack on the Gordon Beerstein Dam will be led by Squadron

too. The mole, that is, not the buttock.'
As Sasges hears the Beerstein Dam is his, a slow smile starts at his feet
and rises to his hairline, then goes on to his forehead.
"The assault on the Robert Bailliff Dam will be led by sleek Squadron
Leader Gary Coull, ardent collector of assorted venereal infections and lead
choir boy for the Point Two Bomber Group.
"Of course, there's only one man for the Davidoslivovitz job and he's

to find the position of the Davidoslivovitz Dam and got it wrong anyway

"Well, we may be ragged and funny, but the target's gonna be sunny.
So you'll be flying along, singing this song, side by side."
"Thanks, gang, but tell me Geoff, how can it be sunny at midnight?"
"We're working on that, sir."
"All right, Group!" snarls Krueger with just the right touch of humor
to break the ice and drown just about everybody in the room. "I want you
to get out there and live up to your nickname of The Fourth Estate. You

A dynamite explosion last July at
the    home   of   a    supermarket
executive was the beginning of a
probe that linked the underworld
to special RCMP forces in Quebec.
Blast knocks hole
in Montreal RCMP
By NICK auf der MAUR
from The Last Post
A dynamite bomb blast in the
early morning hours of July 26
outside the suburban home of a
wealthy Montreal supermarket
executive has opened a new
chapter in the Byzantine Quebec
tale of intrigue involving the underworld, terrorism, the police,
strikebreakers and official
It could have been one of the
innumerable small acts of violence
that occur in Montreal and go by
unnoticed except for brief
newspaper stories, except for the
fact that one Robert Samson, a
member of the RCMP's elite and
secret security and intelligence
(S&I) squad was injured in the
Samson's involvement raises
serious implications concerning, at
the very least, the important
Montreal detachment of the
highestlevel security force in the
country. The Samson case and
related events point to underworld
connections with all levels of the
police agency charged with intelligence work and the protection
of "national security." They also
raise questions and suspicions
about the methods of "anti-
subversive" police operations.
Shortly after the 1:30 a.m. bomb
explosion, Montreal Urban
Community (MUC) police alerted
hospitals to be on the lookout for
someone suffering from serious
hand injuries possibly caused by
the explosion. At the site they had
launch an inquiry into the case.
The Quebec Fire Commission Act,
unique in North America, allows
for an unlimited, wide-ranging
public inquiry which can force
anyone remotely connected with
an incident to testify. Civil liberties
of witnesses are virtually
suspended. It has been used to
probe FLQ bombings and,
recently, the blow-up at James
Opposition and union leaders
were already claiming Samson had
been an agent provocateur.
After his release from hospital, a
month after the bombing, Samson
was brought before fire commissioner Cyrille Delage. He said
he had a simple explanation. An
anonymous caller told him he
would find something interesting
on a street in the town of Mount
Royal, a rich residential area in
the north of Montreal. He went
there and found a package beside
the home of Melvyn Dobrin,
president of Steinberg's Ltd., the
company that owns Miracle Mart
stores, a string of supermarkets in
France and a large development
company, aside from the Steinberg
supermarket chain.
Samson said he put on his gloves
and picked up the package, which,
he noticed, contained a bomb. It
went off. Suffering serious injuries
and shock, he stumbled off, hailed
a taxi and went home to his
mother. His mother called his
friend Fernand Barre who took
him to hospital.
Then followed a parade of witnesses, almost all of whom con-

About 3 a.m., RCMP Constable
Robert Samson, 29, accompanied
by his friend Fernand Barre,
showed up at Verdun General
Hospital with the fingertips on his
left hand in shreds, cuts and
shrapnel in his neck and chest, and
severe damage to his left eye.
Since he was an RCMP agent and
said he had been injured while
fixing his car, the hospital didn't
notify police. However, he was
transferred to Montreal General
Hospital where doctors noticed the
similarity between his wounds and
those described in newspaper
reports about the mysterious

MUC and RCMP officers testified
that he had told them various
versions while in hospital. The
main version was that a loan shark
named 'Louis' paid him a thousand
dollars "to scare somebody."
He said he met Louis in a bar and
Louis said he had heard that
Samson had burned down his
summer cottage for the insurance
money. Louis said if he was on the
take, he should take a couple of
hundred to beat up a loan
defaulter. He did — then came the
At one point, Samson had
decided not to talk any more about
it and asked his RCMP partner to
take off his hand bandages and
"leave me alone with a .38 and go."
Other testimony linked Samson
with two underworld characters.
These were Leo Robidoux,
chauffeur for William Obront, the
Montreal meat dealer identified by
police as a Mafia "untouchable"
and underworld banker, and
Camille Gervais, a transport
company operator, convicted of
drug possession and awaiting
sentencing for a 1973 conviction for
conspiracy in a bank fraud. Gervais also owns a private hunting
and fishing club and is an Obront
Robidoux said he knew Samson
for about two years and he was
around his house "all the time,"
partly because he was going out
with his 17-year-old daughter. On
the trip back, Gervais noted that
Samson went through customs
very quickly when he showed his
identification while he, Gervais,
was searched thoroughly "as
After one day of testimony, the
RCMP placed Samson under
arrest for "conduct unbecoming an
RCMP officer." Several days
later, Fire Commissioner Delage
told Samson he didn't believe a
word of his testimony and, after
giving him a few days to think it
over, sentenced him to 60 days for
The Samson case and related
events also raise disturbing facts
and curious coincidences that add
to the generally murky picture
emerging so far. So before further
exploring the Samson-Steinberg
connections, it will be useful to
have a look at an earlier RCMP
On Dec. 6, 1973, two senior noncommissioned officers of the
RCMP's S&I branch in Montreal,
Staff Sergeant Donald McCleery,
40, a 21-year force veteran, and
Sergeant Gilles Brunet, 39, a 17-
year veteran, were paraded
separately before Superintendent
Roger Shorey and fired.
RCMP sources said that all the
reasons for the firings would never
be made public for "security
reasons." The two men, one of
whom used to be Robert Samson's
superior, said they were fired for
failing to terminate a friendship
with Montreal businessman
Mitchell Bronfman, a nephew of
Sam Bronfman, the late president
of Distillers Corp.-Seagrams who
made his fortune dealing liquor
with U.S. mobsters in prohibition
Mitchell Bronfman owns
Execaire, a private aircraft
company that charters executive
jets to businessmen and companies, and Securex Ltd., a private
investigating and security company holding contracts at Montreal
International Airport. He also
owns a steak house. The meat is
supplied by William Obront, with
whom Bronfman grew up.
Both McCleery, the Mountie
credited with having broken the
James Cross kidnapping case in
1970, and Brunet, the Russian-
speaking son of Josaphat Brunet,
former head of the Quebec
provincial police, now work for
Both men have launched court
actions to clear their names with
the RCMP, claiming the firings
were unjustified and done  in a
secret, arbitrary manner. They
have requested that the RCMP
produce various documents dating
back to 1970.
Oddly enough, the federal
government is invoking a law,
passed during the October Crisis,
allowing it to declare a kind of
executive privilege, saying the
documents would disclose "a
confidence of the Queen's Privy
Council for Canada." Postmaster-
General Bryce Mackasey, acting
as solicitor-general, said the
documents could not be produced
because "they would be injurious
to international relations and
national security."
The courts were about to release
the documents when the two officers mysteriously withdrew their
The content and nature of the
documents is not known. However,
one Last Post source claims that
some of the documents contain, in
part, the names of businessmen
who have supplied the RCMP with
useful information regarding cases
being built against some other
Montreal businessmen. The RCMP
would naturally like to keep the
names of its informers and their
information secret. The two former counter-espionage agents had
said the documents would help
clear them.
The MUC police investigation
into the Dobrin bombing has been
concentrated on finding out (a) the
motive and (b) who was the "third
Samson testified he took taxis to
and from the Dobrin home. Despite
a widespread search, neither taxi
driver has turned up. Other
testimony stated that the evening
before the bombing, Samson was
driving a Thunderbird belonging to
Camille Gervais, the friend he met
on a trip to Morocco. A neighbor of
the Dobrins says he heard and saw
a large, dark car screech away
moments after the blast.
A woman living across from
Samson's mother's home says she
saw Fernand Barre helping his

woman's role
TORONTO (CUP) — Anthropologists tend to impose their
own cultural beliefs on societies
they study according to Marxist
anthropologist Elanor Burke
She was speaking recently to
students at the University of
Toronto and most of her remarks
were concerned with how anthropologists have downplayed the
role of women in many societies.
In the early 1950's Leacock had
lived with the Mantagnais Nescapi,
a hunting and gathering society in
Labrador and Quebec. It was her
experience there that first interested Leacock in investigating
the role of women in early social
She said that anthropologists had
imposed on many cultures the
ideas of the family system, male
supremacy, and the role of
dominance in a culture.
Leacock believes this attitude
stems from the assumption that
human society is based upon
authority and domination. This is
an essentially fascist theory, she
When the Nescapi were first
"discovered" by the French in the
1600's Jesuit priests were sent to
"civilize" the natives. At that time
the Nescapi society was based on
egalitarian and communal
existence, but the Jesuits' process
of "civilization", Leacock said,
was to change the basic nature of
their system into one of domination
by certain groups over others.
The Jesuits attempted to make
the people obey a chief, the women
obey the men and in turn the men
to be authoritarian and the
children to obey their parents, she
One problem the Jesuits encountered, Leacock said, was the
sexual freedom enjoyed by
married couples. The priests were
perturbed because this meant that
a husband could not tell whether
his wife's child was his own or not.
The men thought that thepriests
were savages, Leacock said,
because they only loved their own
children. In communal societies
such as the Nescapi and the
Iroquois the adults do not strictly
differentiate between their own
and someone else's children.
In the societies Leacock
described, division of labor was
sexual, but all areas were essential
to survival. While the men hunted,
she said, the women prepared the
animals for food and raised
vegetables, the main food of the
Iroquois society.
Women also played an equal role
in the spiritual role of the tribes,
she said, although anthropologists
generally portray spiritual leaders
as being exclusively male.
Leacock said while there is
much evidence of equality in these
societies, it is generally ignored by
anthropologists in favor of the
male supremacist values of this

The Last Post learned that the
police are actively pursuing a
theory that the bomb was connected to a Steinberg effort to
break a strike last December.
On Dec. 5, 1973, 1,800 warehouse
and distribution workers walked
out on strike, closing Steinberg's 10
Montreal warehouses and limited
supplies to their 90 Montreal-area
The union, Local 500 of the Retail
Clerks International Association,
was demanding $30 a week increases in each of the next two
years. The company was offering
$25 and $20.
Throughout the strike, there was
a lot of violence. On Dec. 11, 15
goons were arrested in a fracas.
The union charged they were in
company employ. The papers
reported at the time that a company spokesman said: "There was
a brawl with some people who,
came to fight the picketers. We
don't know them. We had nothing
to do with it." No charges were
ever laid.
There were other acts of violence
that permitted the company to
obtain injunctions, allowing it to
continue supplying supermarkets,
which remained open during the
important  pre-Christmas   period.
At one point newspapers
received press releases saying
negotiations were going well and
the strikers were convoked to a
mass meeting. The union knew
nothing of it and suspected
On Dec. 12, someone threw
Molotov   cocktails   at   the   Stein
berg's Cote St.-Luc warehouse,
starting a fire that caused about $1
million in damages.
Finally, on Dec. 14, the strikers
agreed to accept $25 and $20 raises,
the company's pre-strike offer. A
dental plan, scheduled to go into
effect at year's end, was postponed
a year and the money channeled
into increasing nightshift
premiums. The strike was lost and
Steinberg's enjoyed record
Christmas turkey sales.
Police are working on the theory
that Dobrin, anxious to protect
those turkey sales, approached
fellow businessman Bronfman
about breaking the strike. Bronfman, according to this theory, put
him in touch with Gaby Ferland,
operator of a private hunting and
fishing club called Gabou Lodge,
and Ferland arranged for help
from Camille Gervais.
The theory goes that Steinberg's
was unwilling to meet the strikebreaking bill, which may or may
not have included a prolonged
security agreement.
The MUC police investigation is
continuing. Presumably the RCMP
is conducting an internal investigation, but investigations "of
the police by the police are often of
dubious value. The RCMP has for a
long time operated under a policy
of secrecy and never demonstrated
any belief that its activities
warranted public scrutiny.
Now there is reason to believe
that the various police forces
suspect that underworld links to
the elite espionage branch go
beyond a few men. At least one
ranking officer is now under

They all came to us apparently
with top security clearance," he
said, adding that two of them
regularly attended top-level intelligence meetings.
Both the Quebec and federal
governments now maintain additional top-security intelligence-
gathering committees, and it is
presumed they are trying to keep
abreast of developments. Whether
the public gets let in on them is a
moot point.

Sillies confide Xmas fantasies
When you were a kid and believed in Santa
Claus, you usually made a list of presents
you wanted Santa Claus to bring you. Come
Christmas morning, some of those presents
mysteriously appeared under the tinseled
tree and in the gaudy stocking, hung over
the fireplace — if you had a fire place, that
Well, let's go back to the Eve, Christmas
Eve, when you were asleep, dreaming about
all the goodies you were going to receive the
next morning. Here's what a number of
prominent persons would ask Santa on
Christmas Eve:
F. Lee Bailey: sitting by the fireplace,
sipping a velvet Scotch, instructing Santa:
"It is imperative that I be allowed to cop a
plea with the prosecutor, Mr. Claus. It is in
the best interests of my client. Besides, if it
comes to pass that I cannot manage to
negotiate a reduced sentence, the
prosecution may freeze his assets.
Therefore, I will not collect my fee and
consequently suffer in the new year. The
defence rests."
Harry Browne: lounging in his house in
West Vancouver: "I don't need you, you
know. I'm surviving in a cruel, hostile
world. But . . . there is one thing you could
do for me. You could make sure the price of
gold continues to rise and, maybe, make
sure the New York stock exchange continues to plummet. You see, I'm selling
short. . . ."
Marcus Welby: waiting for Santa in the
operating room, TV lights glaring down on
him: "Give me a real script, please. Give
me a script in which someone dies. Have
Consuela trip on my doorstep and suffer
fatal injuries. Give me realism."
Richie Rich: at home in his father's
mansion, lying on a mink rug in front of his
own diamond-studded fireplace: "Gee,
Santa Claus, I'd really like to be able to stay
out late at night and sneak into a bar with
some greasers. Then get really drunk and
pick up a cheap woman, go over to Little
Lotta's house and tell her how fat she is. I'd
like to make it with Dot, to. . . . Oh, hang it
Da Preem ... Santa as weight reducer
all, you know Dad would never let me,
A Kid From Bangladesh: standing on a
dusty road, watching Santa: "Do you think I
could have some of your milk and cookies
everybody leaves for you?"
Henry Kissinger: sitting at home with
Nancy passed out on the sofa beside him:
"Vouldn'tit be correct for me to accompany
you on dee journey? I vould help you
promote peace and  goodvill   among  all
gentlemen I cannot stand my vife,
really. I must get avay!"
Idi Amin: watching Santa's every move:
"I could have you shot for coming in like
that. What are you doing here, anyway? I
don't want you bringing presents, just take
all the dead bodies I've got lying around.
Just take them away."
Casper, the friendly ghost: sitting
somewhere in his house: "Don't be
frightened. I'm a friendly ghost. Please,
don't leave. I won't hurt you. Geez, all I
want is people to like me."
Dave Barrett, eating shortbread and
drinking eggnog: "Really, I wish you could
take a few pounds off me. Looks like hell.
How can I be for the people if I look like I eat
like a pig? I like it here in Victoria; I want to
stay longer than people think I will. Only a
few pounds (munch, munch)."
Fritz the Cat, sniffing cocaine between
slugs of Southern Comfort: "Shit, I could
use all da fuckin' coke in da woild. Give me
all dat heavy traffic man. Fuck, dis stuff's
blowin' my lid right off."
Pierre Trudeau, celebrating Christmas in
Val D'Isere, Margie doesn't believe what
she sees. She thinks Santa is an apparition:
"You would do well in allowing the Royal
Canadian Mint to print up $1.5 billion for the
next fiscal year. If you don't, John will be
out a job and we'll give the Indians back the
land your workshop is located on."
Columbo, standing by the fireplace,
looking for clues, smoking his cigar and
wearing his raincoat: "I don't know, Sir. I
really don't know what you could give
me. . . . Hold on. Hold on. . . . Yeah, I would
really like to see my wife. You see, I always
talk about her, but I never see her. . . . One
more thing, before you rush off — know you
got lots of work to do and all — everybody's
got lots to do, especially tonight. Why, I tell
you, there's this guy down at the station —
you know, the police station, it's downtown "
Yasser Arafat, polishing and oiling a
machine gun: "I would have asked for
peace. Now I want peace with violence."
Richard Nixon, sitting in front of the
fireplace at his home in San Clemente,
staring past Santa Claus as if he weren't
there: "Tell them I'm innocent. Let the
facts speak for themselves. I did nothing
improper. Everything I did was for my
fellow Americans. Tell them I did not do
anything wrong — wanna buy a watch?"
You and Me, trying to have a good time
and not think about all the chaos around us:
"Yeah, first I want to win the Irish
Sweepstakes, so I can pay off all the bills. I
hope it doesn't rain too much in the Spring.
Make sure I passed the Christmas exams
and the finals. . . . None of what I'm asking
you will happen. Have a cookie?"

Of rip-offs and subsidies
It is a rare event indeed when the seedy
side of Canadian business is brought to our
attention. There seems to be a conspiracy of
silence about corrupt business dealings.
One of the very few places where factual
information of this kind can be found is in
Last Post magazine. It was the frustration

which several journalists experienced in
getting out their muckraking stories that
created the Last Post. These journalists
founded the magazine to provide a vehicle
for their brand of journalism.
They seek to present stories that go behind
mere headlines.
The Last Post staff pries behind the insubstantial facades which institutions throw
up to hide their real activities from the
hydroelectric project provides some highly
significant factual details. Premier Robert
Bourassa told an audience in the autumn of
1970 that the project would cost a
"staggering $2 billion." Compare this to the
official mid-1974 estimate of $20 billion and
you have a gap of Watergate dimensions.
One very interesting point that the authors
of this article bring up is the following:
"Hydroelectricity is merely what the
locals get — if they are lucky. The real aim
of these projects is for the big money boys to
make even more money on the 'financing' of
the projects and to get their paws on
massive mineral deposits."
Hydro-Quebec drew up the original plans
for the James Bay development. These
called for a series of dams in the southern
region of James Bay. Mining interests have
managed to get the development shifted to
sites farther north so they can take advantage of the free access roads being built
($300 is being spent on access roads.)
The major corporation behind the
development is Bechtel (Quebec) Ltd. Of
course you should not let the "Quebec" fool
you. Bechtel is a large American corporation which has many large prestige
projects to its credit: the Hoover Dam, the
San Francisco Bay Bridge, and the BART
rapid transit system in San Francisco.
"Bechtel's interest in Canada dates back
to the building of the Canol pipeline linking
Norman Well, N.W.T., to U.S. bases in
Alaska during World War II. It broke innumerable times and was an ecological

"Canadian journalism — the stuff that

Another article details the presence of ITT
in Canada. Did you know that ITT controls
58 Canadian companies.? If you are interested there is a short list provided within
the article.
The article on Canada's plan to invade the
U.S. is based upon a 1921 document written
by the director of military operations and
intelligence, Col. J. Sutherland Brown. Last
Post provides exerpts from this entertaining
document: "Quebec Command .. . will-take

'Renaissance woman'
found elegant but trivial
The contrast with last week's poet could hardly have been greater.
Instead of Pat Lane's uncompromising portraits of a vicious suffering world, P.K.
Page offers us a rather cosier world which at times edges off into semi-mysticism.
Page is an elegant well-dressed woman with an educated English accent, though her
Canadian credentials are impeccable, having spent her 58 years slowly migrating from
the east, to the prairies, and finally to Victoria.
Her poetry seems to divide into two kinds — difficult, oblique metaphysical verse,
often spiced with classical allusions and a more accessible homely variety of dry poems
about landladies, knitters, animals, and suchlike.
She was introduced as "a Renaissance woman" with reference to her poems of social
protest, but a less rebellious figure it would be hard to imagine.
What little protest there was in her poetry was restricted to politely narrow subjects
such as natives being taught to crochet rather than being encouraged in their traditional
crafts or whales being taken from their natural environment and kept in acquariums.
She read about a dozen poems, covering the full range of her career, from her earliest
volume As Ten as Twenty through to recent unpublished work.
Her achievement, like her poetry, is difficult to pin down, though perhaps she comes
closest to a writer like F.R. Scott, with an ultimately classical bent.
It would have been interesting to hear about her involvement with Preview magazine
in Montreal in the early 30s, but Page declined to be interviewed, saying she had a plane
to catch. After dinner at the Faculty Club, that is.
One of the amusing — but really very sad
— stories about ITT exposes how the
company pulled a fast one on the government. It is government policy to aid industry
so that more jobs will be formed. In Quebec,
ITT received, through its subsidiary
Rayonier Quebec Ltd. timber rights to 26,000
square miles and a grant of $57.3 million
dollars to help build access roads for a new
pulp plant.
This was done for the sake of creating 459
new jobs. Unfortunately, the article points
out that while this new pulp mill was going
up at Port Cartier a Canadian International
Paper pulp mill was closed at Temiscaming,
with a loss of 550 jobs.
As a reward for "creating new jobs," ITT
was able to negotiate royalty payments of 50
cents a cord. Compare this to the usual $2.50
to $3.00 a cord plus $20 per square mile
payments that the other companies pay in
order to get their concession rights.
The stories go on. All of them are certainly
more intriguing than any murder mystery
that you can find to read. This book will
round out your education at university. It
will provide you with some rather
distressing insights into that great economic
beast called Canada.
Before I finish this review I feel impelled
to make one complaint. This book is priced
at $4.95 by James Lorimer & Company. For
a 200-page paperback which is printed on
low quality paper, I find this price to be
high-handed extortion. There can be no
excuse for so high a price. Although I
vigorously urge people to read this book, I
can understand the hesitation that this price
will cause.

"Information flows out from television,

Metro Media has existed for 3-1/2 years as
a media resource centre in Vancouver,
supplying groups with the resources they
need to produce their own films, television
programs, video tape recordings and silk
screen posters. These groups have ranged
from the gay alliance to neighborhood

The community co-ops proposed in the
report would each focus on its own media
resource centres.
These centres would be responsible for
training local people in media techniques
and educating them in the use of media
hardware, as well as providing a studio for
the production of community programs.
The media centres would be designed to
help people deal with community issues
which directly affect their lives, giving them
access, involvement and control over the
media which have become the prime tools of
change in our society.
Bargeman said in an interview. "How can
they be responsible if they have no
mechanism of response. They are in the
business pf making money so they don't pay
any attention to community needs.They
don't have a clue what the people want."
Metro Media says in its report the only
real mechanisms of response in the media
today are the "dubious exceptions" of hotline programs and letters to the editor.
Another section of the report points to the
huge profits made by recently licensed
cablevision stations.
A cable licence has often been referred to
as a licence to print money. Money that

maintain local media resource centres
where residents could produce their own
programs. These programs would be
broadcast over the local cablevision station

plan, would be owned and operated as a nonprofit co-op or society.
The fact that only non-commercial interests could own a cable licence is bound to
displease the cable moguls if the citizens'

The existing cable stations spend as little
time as possible on community programming, Metro Media says.
"They are importers of distant signals,
nothing more. The basic approach is one of
turning on the lights and camera for four
hours a day and having two or three people
talk in swivel chairs.
"It is ludicrous to talk about community
programming without community involvement in that programming," the
report says. Metro Media claims cable has
barred this involvement through its money-
oriented policies.
Metro Media claims the university is
another institution which has been
irresponsible to the community and its
needs, especially in concern to its valuable
media equipment.
Bargeman says there is tremendous
"hoarding" of media hardware going on,
specifically by various faculties at UBC.
"Bio-science, English and of course audiovisual have incredible set-ups hoarded
away," he said.
Bargeman said UBC has refused to allow
its equipment to be used by community
organizations and he said the university

"UBC has got to liberate some of its

Bargeman said.
Under the new communications system
the university would be "critically important" in providing input to the
educational television sector.
An integral part of the citizens' plan,
educational TV would encourage groups
with useful or interesting knowledge to
produce programs for community viewing.
More traditional, classroom-type programs

In Vancouver a co-op radio station is
organizing itself with plans to begin
broadcasting soon after Christmas.
But the advantages of the citizens' system
go far beyond the trendiness of the co-op
movement or the recent popularity of the
media cult.
The system, if adopted, would cost the
government very little money compared to
the measures proposed in the Clark Report,
which would create a new provincial TV

administer communications.
A citizens' communication system would
avoid such a rigid bureaucracy and help to

Old gold blossoms again
The glory of old gold blossomed briefly
Wednesday night at the ShaNaNa concert.
All the trappings of past greatness made
their appearance: violence, pranks and
good old rock 'n roll.
Sha Na Na ... grinning
The evening began with an eight member
all-women band called "Wow." Needless to
say, this warm-up act did not truly live up to
its name. They just were not experienced
enough or competent enough to provide a
really good show. They did have a driving
beat and that helped warm up the crowd.
During the "halftime" break while
ShaNaNa's equipment was being set up, the
crowd began to unlimber itself. Halftime
activities included a spate of toilet paper
throwing and other antics.
distinguished. Casual college was the
prevailing style. A few aficionados —
perhaps a dozen — insisted upon reliving the
past and came decked in their finest: black
leather, chains, greasy ducktails, and a
'tough' mannerism.
Two girls in bobby socks, calf length skirts
and school sweaters also made the scene.
Taking the event to heart they placed
themselves strategically at centre floor and
put on their own show. Lipstick was
vigorously applied and cigarettes were
toyed with to recreate those nervous high
school days.
A background for these festivities was
provided by old gold records played over the
sound system. This was spiced with a few of
those glib-tongued monologues of the great
DJ's of the past. Few people paid attention
to this weak attempt by management to
placate and amuse the crowd. The crowd
had come with its own brand of entertainment.
Excitement was high when finally
ShaNaNa sprinted onto stage. With a burst
of enthusiasm and high expectation the
crowd rose to its feet to give the performers
a standing ovation for a welcome.
ShaNaNa is slick and professional and
good. The contrast between them and the
warm-up act is all the difference in the
world. They quickly slipped into their
concert with the Bill Haley tune Rock
Around the Clock.
The quality of sound was superb. They are
excellent musicians, good vocalists, and
have a well-planned floor show. Their
movements had grace and assurance, and
their music had a pleasing and fullsome
harmony to it. This is what concerts are
meant to be: a blend of showmanship and
The halftime pranks had aroused a heavy
atmosphere and a nostalgia for the 'tough'
times of the late fifties and early sixties. One
of the greasers in the audience took all this a
little too seriously. When the concert began
he took up a position standing at a slouch at
front centre of the gym floor to fully absorb
the show.
Those behind attempted to register a
protest, but he was too much into his own
trip. He played it 'cool' and paid them no
attention whatsoever. Emotions which were
already st/ung tight by the atmosphere
came to a breaking point. A fellow from
behind rose up to register his protest
physically. A hefty shove from behind
flattened the greaser. The fight was on.
After a brief skirmish the hapless greaser
was put into a head lock and then hauled off
by four or five of the crowd.
Meanwhile the show rolled on without the
slightest pause. It was a bit incongruous that
the   fight   broke   out   during   the   song
Two girls in bobby socks, calf-length
skirts and school sweaters made the
scene, putting on their own show at
centre floor. Lipstick was vigorously applied to recreate those nervous high
school days.
Some rather nice effects were achieved as
the arcs of unravelling TP streamed across
War Memorial Gym. The crowd's approval
was registered with several outbreaks of
spontaneous applause.
It was unfortunate that the crowd had not
come better prepared. We had to make do
with less than a half dozen rolls of TP. The
few that were there did, however, make
their rounds as the crowd pitched in to keep
the streamers going.
The     audience's     attire     was     un-
Silhouettes on the Shade. The violence
passed and soon we were all absorbed by the
music once again.
ShaNaNa's show is a self-conscious
revival of the old sights and sounds. Their
underlying professionalism as. musicians
guarantees an enjoyable evening. What sets
them apart is their ability to exploit the past
with just the right amount of mockery.
They parody the styles of the past. It is
always good for a belly laugh to see those

bass singer. He is a skinny fellow who

There was a brief interlude during the
concert while a farce was made of American
Bandstand. A dance contest was declared,
and three members of ShaNaNa went out
into the audience to find dance partners for
this skit. I am happy to report that dance
couple number three won.
All the old songs passed by in smooth
review. It was a good feeling to hear them
again: Blue Moon, My Little Run-around,
Breaking up is Hard to Do, Your Sixteenth
Birthday, and of course, ShaNaNa.
The evening was a magic moment that
lasted for an all too brief hour. Almost
everyone went away feeling content with all
those old songs running around inside them
once again.
That is almost everyone. A few of those
more serious music lovers — those who had
come dressed de rigeur with their black
leather jackets and chains — insisted on
getting their act onto the stage too before the
evening was over. A brief tussle broke out as
red-jacketed engineers swarmed around the
stage area to protect it from these would-be

ended calmly. The audience, which had

lightness of foot When the show began, he
came prancing onto stage flexing his
hopelessly inadequate biceps while arching
his eyebrows for approval.
One of his finest moments came at the
conclusion of a song early in the concert.
Just as the music stopped he gave a good
long throat clearing — at full volume over
the sound system. It was only too easy to
imagine that great juicy wad of spit that he
had prepared. Silence. There is a long pause
on stage while he menacingly eyes another
The audience is deadly quiet. This ponderous wait^is broken when the fellow
calmly lets fly the spit. This is the epitome of
the 'cool' insult of the fifties. We are treated
to the sight of moist spit slowly dribbling
down the face of the offended greaser. Our
hero, the skinny punk, gingerly dances out
of range of the enraged tough. . . . And the
show rolls on.
The group has several exceptional performers. The sax player, a huge burly
fellow, did an excellent job. His playing was
bright, crisp and throaty. There was a
pianist in the group worthy of Jerry Lee
Lewis. The fellow had all the skill and flair
of Lewis himself. During the Lewis song
Whole Lptta Shakin' he managed to play a
glissando with a fast flick of a foot down the
keyboard. Excellent.
The guitarists added to the effects by
carrying their guitars slung down in an
exaggeratedly low posture. The lead
guitarist had a nice trick of sliding down on
his knees to work through those exceptionally intense passages.
One of the performers did an imitation of
Elvis. He did a fair imitation of Elvis' famed
pelvic motions with a rendition of the song
You Ain't Nothin' But a Hound Dog. It was
when he turned around to give his fanny a
chance to get into the act that he excelled Sha Na Na ... crooning

The bureaucrats of Spain
struggled to prolong the civil war
to give them time to suppress the
social revolution under the pretext
of a need for social unity in the face
of "the real enemy," the generals
led by Franco.
The other socialists took varying
paths. Some sought only to increase their influence. Some fell to
the arguments of the governmental
bureaucrats and worked to quiet
the ferment of revolution. Others
were only puppets to strategies
made in party meetings held far
from Spain's shores.
It is within this complicated
picture that the experiments with
loyal republicans valiantly
struggled to defend their country
against the generals' coup led by
What people do not know is what
precisely were the revolutionary
ideals that lay behind the ferment
in Spain that finally led to the
tragic outbreak of fighting between
the various factions. The right,
with Franco as its exponent, was
brought to intervene with force by
the wild oscillations between left
and right that were going on in the
government. Their fear of the left
made them break the social
balance and precipitate the civil
war. Opposed to them were a
variety of leftists, with the anarchists predominating.
In the introduction by Murray
Bookchin and the initial chapter by
Sam Dolgoff, a brief sketch of
where the anarchist ideals found
their roots in Spain and how they
grew to maturity is provided.
The division between the ranks
of socialists occurred at the Hague
Congress of the International
Working Men's Association in
September 1872. The anarchists
were under the influence of
Bakunin and the other socialists
were under that of Marx. At this
Congress, political maneuvering
by Marx resulted in Bakunin's
being expelled, along with some
workers' delegations. Soon afterwards the Spanish Federations
also withdrew, and the association
between the Spanish workers and
anarchism was established.
When the civil war broke out
there were two parties on the left,
the anarchist CNT and the socialist
UGT. The division in their ranks
still reflected the schism of the
Hague Congress. Each had over a
million members.
It was the CNT that made the
first efforts to defeat the generals'
coup. The government was
paralyzed. The CNT militants in
Barcelona seized weapons and,
aided by some loyal police, were
able to defeat the army troops. The
inspiration of this action as well as
the assistance of tens of thousands
of armed workers streaming out of
Barcelona on commandeered
trucks enabled other centres in
Spain to thrust back the military
forces. Two-thirds of Spain was
freed. They called themselves
"loyalist Spain," and the civil war
The complications of the
struggle were immense. The
revolutionaries needed the cover of
being loyal to the republic in order
to get what aid they could from
foreign nations. Within this facade
of a republic, vigorous attempts
were made by the anarchists to
promote a thorough-going social

from a wide variety of anarchist
writers in order to present as
complete an account as is possible.

written many years after the

were successful. Despite the difficulties of war time, millions of
people were able to reorganize the
traditional social structures on
wholly different lines.
The very best success story is
that of the Barcelona workers.
They had to convert factories
devoted to the textile industry into
war munitions and armaments.
They succeeded, Franco had
seized war production facilities of
Spain, but the workers of Barcelona, under workers' self-
management, were able to create
within a matter of weeks a war
industry to counter Franco's.

Belshaw, who quit as anthropology-sociology department
head last June amid charges of
autocratic tendencies — most
notably his action in 1971 of overriding a departmental committee's
decision to give tenure to two
assistant sociology professors —
calls for development of the
university's  status   as   an   in-

university is the development of

"The only field of judgment in
which the university has the right
to speak with authority — and that
open to challenge — is in the
elucidation, defence and operation
of its own central values," he
contends.  "Apart from this,  the
university does not establish or
legitimize dogma. It is not a church
seeking out heretics."
He claims that endorsing particular judgments would deny the.
university's central  purpose and
inhibit the questioning important
for creative growth.
"It is generally accepted that
scientific systems grow with
questioning and challenging. It is
more difficult for some members
of the public to accept that the

dependent institution invulnerable
to social pressures and governed
solely by academics.
"It can be seen that my approach
is essentially pragmatic and
somewhat instrumental — that I
deal in checks and balances, not in
extremes or absolutes."
This is how Belshaw describes
his solution to the increased outside pressures on universities and
the growing strain on their
traditional stance as unique entities, incomparable to other
higher learning institutes and
independent of public political
But Belshaw's checks and
balances, intended to offset internal and external manipulation
of the goals of the "creative"
university, are designed to do little
more than preserve the status quo
at the expense of current trends
toward democratization.
Creative universities, Belshaw
explains, must fulfill three specific
"The essential teaching
requirement is that a university,
above all other institutions,
engenders in its. members,
students and faculty alike, an
ability to ask and formulate
questions linked with generalized
knowledge, and to use evidence,
logic and intuitive judgment to
provide answers," Belshaw writes.
The second objective, he continues, is to expand cultural
resources in the broad anthropological sense — involving
"the totality of knowledge and
ideas, values and institutionally
expressed modes of behavior, as
well as the material paraphernalia
upon which activity is based.

Belshaw attacks 60s activists
From pf10
esthetic, moral and even political
While schools and institutions
are legitimate institutions for a
deliberate socialization process,
universities are not, Belshaw says.
Also included in the list is the
assumption that students are
adults, Belshaw says.
But Belshaw says this does not
mean students should be treated as
adults or take part in deciding
university affairs because
charging secondary education
leaves many students ill-prepared
for adult responsibilities.
He agrees students have a
viewpoint about university values,
important to the university, which
they need to express in a serious
context, but he denies this implies
a voice or control in government.
He also agrees student participation at all levels of university
government is one of the best ways
students can learn to test the
practical implications of university values.
He says such experience can
touch only a small proportion of the
students, although he concedes it
will provide more experienced
people who will eventually take
their places among the alumni.
"But none of this implies parity
or student control: indeed it implies the reverse, that student
participation, while responsible, is
a part of learning," Belshaw says.
"Against this position is the
unfortunate fact that many of the
most influential student leaders
recently have shown an arrogant
ignore of university values/ a
situation which can be corrected
and controlled by their fellow
students as much as anybody.
"Worse, some have deliberately
set out to use the university for
political ends, to manipulate,
capture and even destroy it. No
university can tolerate this and
"This is not in itself an argument
against student participation," he
explains. "But rather a warning
that such participation can under
some circumstances involve
painful and disruptive battles,
which must however be faced up to
and won."
Belshaw says students, like the
alumni and laymen, would best
serve the university on significant
advisory bodies in which their
opinions and the spectrum of
society can be better represented.
"But it is most important that
the advisory function be kept to a
real two-way communication and
to advice; and that this not be
confused with ultimate decision,"
he says. "Such bodies can and do
give wrong advice, incompatible
with university values."
He adopts a similar argument,
while claiming the university must
be governed by academics, to
refute calls for unfettered
democratization at the departmental level.
"Of recent years, with the
growth of experience, it has
become clear that the contemporary environment produces
weaknesses and stresses in the
democratic approach which were
not summarized by its more
idealistic early proponents,"
Belshaw says.
According to Belshaw,
"democratic tyranny" is harder to
get rid of than authoritarian or
bureaucratic tyranny.
"The mere possibility of this
occurring is enough to justify
checks and balances. I would
argue that the more the department uses democratic modes, the
more important it is that the
chairman be a head with powers to
intervene and countermand unjust
and tyrannical positions, and, as
we shall see, to hold up those
decisions which go contrary to the
maintenance of university views
and standards."
While admitting he is warning of
the extremes to which universities
can fall prey to, Belshaw nevertheless equates those extremes
with all trends leading away from

Panel agrees
Third World
needs change
There must be major changes in
the way Third World countries are
being developed, a panel of experts
concluded here Thursday.
UBC planner Doug Webster told
about 50 people at International
House that many plans drawn up
for Third World nations are "often
more a fantasy than a reality."
He said these plans must be
drawn up in order to obtain funding
from international agencies such
as the International Monetary
"Often the real planners are the
international corporations,"
Webster said.
In the past, plans were made
simply to "facilitate the movement
of resources from these countries
to the mother country," he said.
Then, in the later neo-colonial
phase, more emphasis was placed
on industrialization and urbanization.
"This planted the seeds of its
own destruction," Webster said.
Third World development has
moved into a new phase where
emphasis is placed on training
people in Third World countries to
carry out the tasks which in the
past have been handled by people
from developed countries, he said.
"The problems faced by planners in the Third World today are
almost overwhelming," Webster
UBC sociology prof Blanca
Muratorio spoke of development in
South America, and in particular
the problem of the "marginal
population" in these countries.
"Marginal populations are
underemployed in order to sustain
the position of the bourgeoisie,"
she said.
Muratorio said she opposes
population control programs
unless they are accompanied by
major changes in the structure of
A sudden drop in the rate of
population growth under present
conditions would in time create a
population of aged people unable to
take care of itself, she said.
UBC anthropology prof Bob
Anderson said his experience in
Bangladesh with aid programs is
an example of problems which face
developing countries.
Anderson said corruption among
government workers in
Bangladesh has impeded the
construction of wells for drinking
water for people in a densely
populated area of that country.
Anderson said international aid
agencies spend millions of dollars
on pumps and pipes for wells,
which they are powerless to
prevent from being sold on the
black market.
All three panel members said the
current state of development in the
Third World is very poor and that
only major changes in the current
modes of development can improve the situation.

At women's meet
Discussion nil
After asking interested people to
come to a meeting noon Thursday
to discuss international Women's
year, women's dean Margaret
Fulton spoke for 50 minutes of the
meeting and left 10 more for
She told the 100 people at the
meeting that funding of the
project, running throughout 1975,
will be a problem.
She said that of the $5 million the
federal government has granted to
the U.N.-sponsored project, $2.5
million will be spent on conferences, $500,000 on advertising
and $2 million will be divided
regionally throughout Canada for
But Fulton said she doesn't think
UBC will get any money because
between 100 and 150 women's
groups in the B.C.-Yukon district
are applying for funds.
The B.C. government also has
agreed to back projects, said
Fulton, but "all efforts to get
money for university women's
projects have been met by a
resounding, dull thud."
She said administration
president Walter Gage has increased her office's budget to allow
for increased mailing and advertising and she urged members
of the audience to use individual
faculty budgets and resources in
their projects.
As an example, she described the
anthropology-sociology department's workshop on women in
Indian to be held in January.
"We will have a lovely curried
lunch," which promises to be
special, she said, adding that three
women from India will join anthropology professor Brenda Beck
in discussing the topic.
Fulton said her office has asked
author Doris Lessing to visit
campus during 1975, but Lessing
replied, according to a letter read
at the meeting,,that she would love
to come but had previous commitments.
The dean of women said the
major project on campus is to
create a women's pavilion.
"It will be a demountable,
recyclable, Buckminster Fuller-
type dome — a very avant garde
type of structure.
"It will be a building designed by
women, built by women and the
programs in the pavilion will be
palnned by women."
She said the community must be
made aware that "the real
resource centre for women's
studies is the.university."

This week we will discuss the specifications of turntables and what they
Four factors will determine the performance-of turntables:
1) RUMBLE - motor vibration — Rumble is usually expressed in decibles
(db), relative to a standard recorded level. Sometimes rumble is also
weighted to allow for the relative audiobility of different vibrating
frequencies. There are three different standards used to measure rumble.
NAB - the unweighted measurement. CBS ARRL - American weighted.
DIN - European weighted. Under the CBS/ARRL system (the most
commonly used), the low priced changers will have rumble figures of 40-55
db. The higher priced single play turntables will be at 56-65 db and the
finest of the direct drive units could go to 70db.
2) WOW AND FLUTTER - the short term speed stability of the
turntable. Wow and flutter are measured by the percentage of frequency
modulation they impart to a constant frequency recorded tone. The low
priced turntable will measure about 0.2%, the better units around 0.15%
and the finest turntables .05% or less. If the wow and flutter figures are
about 0.1% there is usually no way you can determine deviation from
3) TONEARM FRICTION - The friction in the tone arm shouldn't be
any more than 50 mgms. in either plane, if you are using a medium price
(under $60 cartridge). For some of the super cartridges (such as the
ADC-XLM or the Ortofon M-15-E super), the arm should have less than 20
mgms. of friction in either plane.
4) MASS - Inertia of the tonearm. The amount of tonearm friction and
inertia determines whether certain cartridges can be used with certain
tonearms. Look for a tonearm with as little mass as possible, if the mass of
arm is high, low friction figures will not enable you to use a good cartridge.
You should be looking at figures of no more than 12 gms. for a good
tonearm. Any arm that has a mass of over 16-17 gms. is unacceptable. The
best tonearms have mass figures of under 10 gms.

In right wing Chile
Fight continues
The struggle against the right
wing government in Chile is
continuing despite repression of
the left wing, a South American
Marxist leader said Thursday.
Speaking through an interpreter,
Peruvian revolutionary Hugo
Blanco said most revolutionaries
believe in taking power through
guerilla movements or through the
"We belong to the current of
people who believe in the Latin
American people," Blanco said.
"We know that our task as
revolutionaries is not to replace
these people."
The Allende government in Chile
"was elected as a result of an
upsurge of the Chilean workers,"
Bianco said.
"The capitalist boycott of Chile
began the moment Allende was
elected," Blanco said. "It served to
undermine the economy of Chile."
He said that during a strike by
the owners of Chilean buses and
trucks,"the Chilean working class
showed that Chile could exist
without capitalists or merchants.
This made the capitalists
The capitalists joined up in a
limited way with the Allende
government, but only for self-
serving purposes, he said.
By  1973 Chile was  in a  deep
economic crisis. "This crisis was
provoked by the imperialists,"
Blanco said, "but it was not
Blanco said the repression of the
Chilean working class by the army
began while Allende was still in
power. "This produced the
demoralisation of the working
Finally, the army took power in
the coup of September 11, 1973.
"The resistance of the Chilean
people to the coup was heroic,"
Blanco said. "But the lack of
organization meant this resistance
was crushed bloodily."
"The hatred of the military junta
has grown in Chile," he said. But
the military will hold power for
some time because the Chilean
people "feel a tremendous terror of
the regime."

Pit's guest limit
passes AMS council
Alma Mater Society councillors
brought their internecine feuding
to the people Thursday in a well-
attended meeting in the SUB
conversation pit.
During the two-hour meeting,
students drifted in and out of the
area as councillors called each
other liars, passed motions, heard
reports and were interrupted by
the occasional hoot or howl and a
remote-controlled carpet sweeper
buzzing around the audience and
Councillors approved a SUB
management committee recommendation that guest passes to the
Pit be limited.
Councillors agreed that 75 guest
passes will be sold for Monday,
Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings and that they will be
sold a week in advance at 50 cents
The motion also limits each
student to one guest.
Students who want to buy a guest
pass can do so from 8:30 a.m. to 4
- p.m. Monday to Friday in the co-op
bookstore in the basement of SUB.
They must have a student card.
Committee members hope to
eliminate guests who take up
students' seats and to prevent
underage drinkers who claim they
have lost their student card and get
signed in as guests.
Councillors defeated a motion
passed at the recent National
Union of Students meeting in
Saskatoon, Sask., which would
have increased the fee a student
society would have to pay to belong
to the union.
The motion, asking the annual
membership fee be increased to $1
a student from 30 cents, was
unanimously defeated.
A motion that the union seek
standardization of federal financing of post-secondary education
was also defeated.
"This could very well mean
higher fees for B.C. and lower ones
for Ontario," said grad rep David
"I think the way it is now is
"It's good for Ontario with their
high fees that they have B.C.
around to see low fees," he said.
"If we pass this motion, it might
well be that B.C. won't be around
as an example."
But council passed a motion
asking the federal government to
increase student aid by grants, not
"If the government were to
accept this idea, a university
education would become much
more accessible," said Steve
Mochnacki, grad student
association president.
"Education in the university
should be a right to anyone who
Councillors also agreed the union
should ask the federal government
to provide Canada Student Loans
to part-time students.
Before the motion was passed,
AMS president Gordon Blankstein
told councillors this motion could
hurt the provincial government
program in B.C.
"We have the best loan program
in Canada," he said. "Ontario may
get a better break than they have
up to now, but it might get worse in
Council's decisions now will be
sent to the NUS executive in Ottawa.
NUS motions only become policy
after a majority of the student
councils of member universities
have passed the motions.
Councillors also agreed that the
AMS shouldn't sponsor housing
projects on the University Endowment Lands until a student
referendum on the future of the
UEL is held.
AMS vice-president Robbie
Smith is heading a group which is
applying   for   $5   million   for   a
student housing projects
Councillors voted to send a letter
to the board of governors asking it
to reconsider a library-sponsored
plan to construct a library
processing centre to the northwest
of SUB.
"Council feels its current
position of reacting to already
formulated plans for the university
environment is at least unfortunate
and definitely unnecessary," says
the letter.
"Problems of this nature would
not occur in future if there was
recognition of the fact that
students have a concern for the
design of their environment."

Esalen psychotherapist
lauds group gropes
"My goal as a psychotherapist is
to help create conditions which
make it easier for you, the patient,
to be honest with yourself, aware of
yourself and others, to take
responsibility for yourself and to
realize that your life is your
These are the words of Dr. Bill
Schutz, one of the founders and
leaders of the human potential
movement, which translates as
encounter groups . . . group
"Grope therapy? You're exactly
right," he said in an interview
Thursday. "A lot of what goes on is
we grope around,"
"On a certain level, there is so
much unexplored territory between people," he said.
But before the participant enters
the group, he has to be aware of the
perspectives he should be taking.
There are three of them: choice,
truth and awareness.
"The first thing is choice," he
said. "To be aware that you're
choosing everything that's happening to you in this group."
The second is truth. "Not lying is
hard to do because we're all
brought up to be liars," Schutz
said. "Much harder than that is to
know what is the truth."
An example of not believing in
truth, and of missing the third
perspective of awareness, is what
Schutz terms "the Watergate
"(Former U.S. attorney general
John) Mitchell is the perfect
example of lack of awareness . . .
'do it but don't talk to me about
it,' " he said.
Schutz said the traditional role of
the psychotherapist is one where
the therapist "knows" what's
wrong with you. "When we talk
aboutencounter, we get below, in a
sense of depth where superficial is
As for the current state of
psychotherapy, Schutz said he
doesn't know just what its position
is. "The methods that I think are
promising seem far more widely
used now than 10 years ago.
"These new methods — body
oriented, non-verbal, fantasy,
eastern, mysticai — are influencing traditional methods in
what seem to me to be valuable
ways," he writes in the Journal of
Contemporary Psychotherapy.
Schutz admits encounter or
group therapy has religious
overtones but says it differs from
religion. "We get right to what's
happening," he said.
That process is something
beneficial to both the group
members and "leader." "If it
didn't help us it would be like a
chore . . . like going to work," he
Schutz said he began his career
as a teacher and researcher. "One
thing I'm sorry I didn't get is more
training in anatomy and biology,"
he said. "I was militantly a social
scientist rather than a biological
scientist, while a graduate
Now, he writes, he looks upon the
way he does psychotherapy as
continuous with the way he lives.
"Psychotherapy is a procedure for
realizing a person's full potential.
So is life."
"The encounter principles of
honesty, responsibility and
awareness apply equally to
psychotherapy and to everyday
living," he writes.
When asked about the future role
of psychotherapy as a profession,
Schutz says his predictions" are
"primarily either wishes or fears
that I meet by anticipating the
But anticipation is not the wisest
choice for group therapy. "If you
anticipate the worst, you get the
ability to be unhappy twice."
Schutz said the anticipator is
first faced with the chance to be
unhappy with his anticipations
and, if they are realized, the unfortunate result.
"It takes you out of the here and
now," he said. "Anytime you start
worrying about the past or outline
the future you're losing the here
and now."
Schutz is a resident doctor at the
Esalenlnstitute at Big Sur,
California. He said most of the
persons who come to the institute
are "normal neurotics . . . people
like us."
The sessions involve a group of
up to. 30 people whose primary
concern is to be aware of themselves and to tell the truth. "And be
aware of your body," Schutz said.
"The body is the whole key."
"What has been done is the
possibility of touching people has
been introduced."
"In this we touch all the time . . .
wrestle and hug," Schutz's wife
Valerie added. "People that go into
encounter groups are still in a very
normal way."
"Whenever you  introduce  the
idea that it's alright to touch each
other, it tags into something very
deep in people," Schutz said.
"It's entirely voluntary. The rest
is up to them whether to continue
or not."
Schutz said members of encounter groups, including the
leader, act out and deal with
themselves . . . they are exposed
and expressed.
One example of this
"movement" within the group is
the women's liberation movement,
Schutz said. "The way I see the
liberation movement is that there
is first a sense of outrage, a sense
of imposition.
"Then there is a lot of blaming
. . . 'men are terrible.' Then it
starts to get productive."
"If you're a man and I say you're
oppressing me then I have to wait
until you change," Valerie Schutz
said. "Somewhere along the line
women have to look into themselves and let it come from

Hindmarch on the 'Birds two-game
series against the University of
Saskatchewan Huskies in
Saskatoon, tonight and Saturday.
He is right about the games

Association standings, badly need

The 'Birds are winless in their
last four games, their last wins
coming against this same Huskie
squad three weeks ago.
What would bother a coach is the
attitude most teams would develop
over a minor slump like the one the
'Birds are in now.
But Hindmarch is confident the
team can come away with both the
"Our attitude isn't that we're
winless in four games, but that the
last time we lost was against
Edmonton last Saturday. We
played well in our tie with Calgary,
so we're not worrying about our

coach Peter Mullins. "There are too many areas that
need practice to allow the luxury of trying new
The tournament in Victoria will feature the 'Birds,
the UVic Vikings, the Senior A Victoria Scorpions,
and Western Washington State College. UBC meets
the Washington team Friday night.
"We haven't precisely scheduled anything yet,"
said Thunderette coach Susan Evans. "We'll leave it
to the other teams to schedule the games at times
convenient to them. But we'll definitely be playing."
The Thunderettes lost a game to the Vancouver
Buzz Bombs Tuesday, 47-44. It had to rank as an
upset, but Evans wasn't worried about the result.
"The loss should have a good effect on the team. It
shocked us a little, but now we'll really be up for the
games against Victoria this weekend," she said.
The Thunderettes are playing in Victoria against
the Vikettes tonight and Saturday.
The team seems to be a lot
healthier now than in the last

Timbuktu over CIAU: says SFU
"If I had the money, I'd rather go
to Timbuktu to play a good team,"
said Simon Fraser University
soccer coach John Buchanan.
Commenting on the national
championships which UBC won
earlier this month, he said it is not
Buchanan added that the
Clansmen, who are not affiliated
with the Canadian Intercollegiate
Athletic Union in the first place, do
not particularly want to go to the
C.I.A.U. championships.
Both Buchanan and Joe Johnson,
coach of the 'Birds, do not think the
three day knock-out tournament is
a particularly good way of deciding
the national champion.
However, according to Johnson,
there doesn't seem to be any
financially possible solution to the
There are plans underfoot to
change the Canada West set-up,
Johnson said. They are trying to
have a round-robin tournament,
the teams playing each other
twice, once at home and once
away. The aggregate scores in the
two games would then decide the
winner in each particular series.
However, this brings to mind the
tremendous amount of money that
is needed to fly the teams in between Victoria, Vancouver, Edmonton, and Regina.
When asked by the Ubyssey
whether S.F.U., who are left out of
Canada West tournaments, would
like to play more Canadian
university teams, Buchanan said
he is "more interested in soccer
than in politics" and he would prefer to play American teams, if they
had a good team.
Johnson expressed a similar
desire to play Americans,
especially the National Collegiate
Athletic   Association   champions.
Johnson said, "Canadian soccer
needs a booster shot," he feels a
North American game between
U.S. and Canadian collegiate
champions may well be the thing
Canadian soccer needs.
When asked to comment on the
subject of scholarships for soccer
players, Johnson said he does not
think scholarships mean too much.
However, he added he would like
to see some form of assistance for
the players, such as special
treatment in the courses they take.
He thinks extensions in the
players' term paper deadlines or
something along those lines would
help the students.
When asked to comment on the
same topic, Buchanan said his
players are attracted by the S.F.U.
soccer program rather than by
their scholarships.
Buchanan pointed out that most
of his players come from the
S.F.U. area and would have gone to
S.F.U. anyway.
The two Vancouver rivals will
meet Saturday at 2:00 p.m., at
Thunderbird Stadium.
Both coaches said their players
are getting keyed up for the game.
While the Clansmen coach said
the fact UBC are national champions had little influence on his
team, the UBC coach said the
national championship has helped
his team tremendously.
Last weekend, in exibition action
the 'Birds shut out the Olympic
Columbians 5-0.
Johnson said the team is playing
with more confidence since winning the national title.
The next item on his list of future
conquests is to be the first
university team to win the B.C.
Buchanan said his team will play
the 'Birds with "respect and
Both teams have a chance of
topping the league. Both are
reasonably well-placed in the
league, UBC in 3rd and S.F.U. in
fifth, in a league of ten. Both have
games in hand, but as Johnson said
"games in hand don't mean a
thing. "You've got to go out and
win those games."
Whatever   the   outcome   the
Saturday   game   has   every   indication of being a good soccer

The Alumni is out and the
Americans are in, as far as
competition for the Thunderbird
wrestling team is concerned
The annual dual meet between
the current varsity 'Birds and their
graduate counterparts has been
put off. Instead the 'Birds turn
south, looking at the first Puget

The Seattle tournament will pit
the 'Birds against the top
university and college teams in the
Pacific Northwest. The University
of Washington Huskies will present
the toughest opposition.
The Richey brothers, George and
Mike, will be leading the UBC
team. Mike was the only 'Bird to
capture a title in the UBC Invitational tournament two weeks
ago. He took the 167 pound division
and will have to be considered one
of the favorites in that class again.
Mike, the current national
champion at 190 pounds, was upset
in the UBC tournament and
finished third.
He placed sixth in the world
The rugby team prepares for its
toughest game of the year, their
^encounter with the ex-Brits at 2:30
p.m. at Arthur Lord Field near
Thunderbird Stadium.
Preston Wiley, the Thunderbird
playmaking whiz, feels the ex-
Brits are a very well rounded team
lead by two strong centres. Wiley
said they play a wider open game
than any other Vancouver club side
but don't throw the ball around as
much as the 'Birds.
Without a doubt this will
probably be the finest rugger on
campus this year, at least until the
UCLA Bruins make their March
championships in August and will
be heading to Cuba shortly for a
tournament. The trip is being
financed by the national team with
the aim of preparing wrestlers for
the upcoming Pan Am games and
the Montreal Olympics.
Bob Laycoe, the Thunderbird
coach, has been named to coach
the Cuba bound delegation.
Heavyweight Kyle Raymond, the
Canadian Greco-Roman champion, will also be making the trip.
Gus Romanelli will be missing
from the 'Bird lineup. He is out for
three to six weeks with a torn
tendon in his arm.
Volleyball action
Some of the top volleyball teams in the north-west United States and
British Columbia are gathering here Saturday for the UBC Men's Invitational Volleyball Tournament.
The 'Birds will be starting with virtually the same team which won
them the Canada West title last February, with the addition of six very
promising rookies. Four of the newcomers played with the B.C.
provincial team last year .Two are from city clubs.
Teams from Washington, Oregon, Vancouver Island and the rest of
B.C. will be starting round-robin play at 9:00 a.m. Saturday morning.
The semi-finals begin at 5:00 p.m. with the finals going at 6:30 in War
