Array End to $5 rec fee promised
By JAKE van der KAMP
Alma Mater Society vice-president Gordon Blankstein told student
council Wednesday night he can have the $5 Recreation UBC fee
abolished.
"The students put $360,000 into the War Memorial gym and when it
was built it was stipulated that it be used for intramurals, extramurals,
student recreation and overflow classes.   We've already payed for it.
"The students actually have control of that building but we haven't
been exercizing control."
Blankstein said he will be looking
into the issue further and if he is
proven correct he will go to administration president Walter
Gage and demand the Rec UBC fee
be abolished.
"If we have anything to do with it , b^*..**
the $5 fee will be gone next year," ^m**"-' J
he said.
Blankstein made his comments
when one council member asked
him what had been done about a
motion passed at an Oct. 24
meeting of council telling student
members of the UBC Recreation
steering committee to carry out
council's intent that the program
should be financed by the administration.
The steering committee consists
of six students and three faculty
members. It includes Blankstein
current AMS secretary George
Mapson and Rec UBC director Ed
Goutschi.
The members of the committee
are the same ones who sat on it last
year and were appointed this year
when there was only nomination in
the elections to it.
Rec UBC's budget this year is
$20,000 of which $5,000 is provided
by the administration. The rest of
the money comes from the pockets
of students.
Mapson disagrees with
Blanksteins assessment of the
situation. He said in an interview
he believes the fee cannot be
abolished because he claimed,
students do not really have control
of the gym.
He said some members of
council had gone to the board of
governors last year asked for total
administration funding of the
program but were told the
university did not have the money
to do it.
Mapson said Blankstein is out of
touch with Rec UBC because,
although he is a member of the
steering committee, he has not
recently attended any  meetings.
Blankstein admitted he has not
but said it was because Gautschi
has complete control of Rec UBC
and student on the committee have
no power.
"Gautschi does whatever he
wants. He doesn't listen to student
reps," Blankstein said.
In other business treasurer John
Wilson told council he had contacted the board of governors and
. requested  board  meetings   be
opened to the public.
Wilson said the request was
tabled because the board had 91
items on the agenda and was not
willing to spend time on this
particular one.
He said board members told him
there would be problems in
arranging which meetings should
be open and which ones in camera
sinee they do not wish to discuss
personnel matters in public.
He said he could not understand
why the board refused to consider
the request.
"They'll be forced to accept it
under new government legislation,
anyways," he said. "I don't see
why they don't take the chance to
do it without being forced to."
Council also heard a complaint
by ombudsman, Amarjeet Rattan
that many students are unable to
get tickets to the Pit Saturday
night because a block of 300 tickets
has been bought by the grad class
council for science 4 students.

AUS looks at own elections
By JAKE van der KAMP
The arts undergraduate society wants to
conduct alternate elections of student representatives to arts faculty meetings.
A motion was passed at a general meeting
of the AUS Tuesday in Buchanan 102 to strike
an ad hoc committee to look into the
possibilities of conducting the alternate
elections.
The AUS executive is promoting a boycott
of the election of representatives to the arts
faculty being conducted by the registrar
because the executive feels the AUS should be
the body to organize the elections and the
registrar's election procedures provide no
chance for interaction between the candidates and the electorate.
The decision to have 27 student representatives elected through the registrar
passed by a narrow margin at senate meeting
Dec. 12.
Students at the arts meeting Tuesday
decided to form the ad hoc committee
because they are uncertain where they stand
legally in holding the alternate elections.
"The AUS constitution is written in such a
fashion that the only elections the AUS hold
are executive elections," said Stewart
Savard, arts 2. "It doesn't say we can't hold
these alternate elections but it's better to be
on firmer ground."
It was generally agreed both the boycott
and the alternate elections would be inef
fective if the registrar receives nominations,
but most of those present seemed to think he
would receive few nominations, if any.
However Wednesday afternoon the
registrar's office reported having received
eight nominations. Registrar Jack Parnall
said he could not release the names of the
nominees until all nominations are in.
Deadline for nominations is 5 p.m. today.
One student nominated is Marta Leskard,
arts 3, representing the classics department.
Leskard said in an interview all classics
students are supporting her in defying-the
boycott and standing for election.
"The AUS is irrelevant to classics students
and not representative of them or any other
arts department," she said. "The registrar
will conduct elections in a more impartial
manner than the AUS."
"Arts students have been offered a chance
for official representation and they should
grab the opportunity and argue about the
details later."
Leskard said this is the first time she has
run for a position on campus and does not
expect to have much influence in faculty
decisions.
However, students from other departments
are supporting the boycott and the alternate
elections, among them history students who
protested the actions of the AUS Monday but
decided to support it after a meeting of
history students Tuesday.
In that meeting Greig Houlden, arts 3
moved the history students' union send a
nomination to the registrar. He argued
history students are well organized and there
will be interaction between them and their
representative. His motion failed decisively.
Another motion to support the boycott and
nominate a student to the alternate elections
passed. Houlden did not say whether he would
abide by that decision.
In the general meeting the assent of
students from some departments to the
alternate elections was conditional.
A spokesman for geography students said
they would only give support if the AUS acts.
"We decided to boycott in principal but if
nothing happens at this meeting we will go
ahead and nominate," he said. "There's a lot
of resentment in our department because our
people do want a representative."
But AUS treasurer Kim Pollock insisted
holding alternate elections will ultimately be
more beneficial.
"If we should effectively boycott these
elections we have regained our bargaining
position with the faculty," he said. "Then
we've showed we're not playing into their
hands."
"For the alternate elections,- the AUS will
conduct elections in those departments where
there are no unions and the faculty would
have to reconcile itself to 26 students who
claim to be representatives," he said. Page 2

Sociology TA dismissed
for backing professor
GUELPH, Ont. (CUP) — A
sociology teaching assistant has
' been fired by the sociology-
anthropology department at
Guelph University for her attempts
to have a professor rehired and her
help to students organizing a
course union.
This is the claim of Olive
Holmes, the fired T.A. She says she
was clearly given to believe that
her support for Prof. Michael
Pettitt and the course union were
the reasons for her 'non-renewal of
contract'.
Soc-anthro chairperson K.
Duncan claims he was merely
exercising his prerogative in
judging the suitability of candidates for teaching positions. He
refused to elaborate on the criteria
he used to judge suitability and the
new factors that had arisen to
disqualify Holmes, who had
already served as a T.A. for three
semesters.
At least one professor in the
department requested that Holmes
Britain
couldn't
keep empiah
By RALPH MAURER
The collapse of the British
empire was due not so much to the
strength of the nationalist
movements in the colonies as to the
reluctance in Great Britain itself to
maintain it, Oxford historian Max
Beloff said Tuesday.
Beloff, a professor of government at AH Souls College in Oxford
and author of several books on 17th
and 20th century European history,
told an audience of about 300 the
dissolution of the empire came
from within Britain itself, while the
colonies "made it on their own".
The empire had been built over
the previous three centuries for the
prestige and the economic advantage that- was to be gotten by
maintaining producers of raw
materials for the mother country,
he said. But during the inter-war
period, many Britons questioned
both the moral and economic
feasibility of keeping colonies any
longer.
Beloff said it was contradictory
to the spirit of democracy that a
nation like Great Britain should
rule over other peoples.
On a more pragmatic level, it
was felt that economically, it was
"no longer worth sustaining the
colonies," said Beloff. "There
developed a hostility within Britain
toward making sacrifices for the
empire, often at a great cost in
human •suffering."
From that time on it was debated
whether Britain should become
more involved in continental
European affairs or adopt an
isolationist, "Commonwealth-
first" attitude. The question wasn't
resolved until Britain entered the
European Economic Community
in 1972, he said.
Beloff discounts nationalism as a
major force in the collapse of the
empire. During and after the
Second World War, he said, many
colonies in southeast Asia which
had been under Japanese occupation had a chance to gain their
independence, but none did.
It was only after the war, when
the socialist Labor party came to
power, when the process of
decolonization quickened its pace.
"Decolonization is a natural policy
for a socialist government, but it
was not opposed by the main body
of conservative opinion," said
Beloff. He pointed out that the
decolonization of much of Africa
took place under the Conservative
government of Harold MacMillan.
be hired as his T.A. this semester.
But Duncan refused to authorize
her appointment despite a shortage of T.A.s this semester at
Guelph.
A number of professors in the
department are known to have
used class time in the same way
that Holmes did: to encourage
students to pressure for the
rehiring of Pettitt and to encourage
development of the course union.
Duncan maintains he is fully
within his rights in refusing to hire
any T.A. and says he feels no need
to explain or justify his actions. He
did suggest it is "time to have new
faces around".
Duncan has refused to co-oerate
with the course union. We "asked
Duncan for his permission to set up
an informal meeting between
students and faculty in order to
talk things out and set up course
evaluations, but all he said was
that he would not co-operate," said
a student representative.
Earlier students met with
Duncan to discuss student input to
the department's decision-making
process, the establishment of an
advisory committee for the
development of new courses, and
the invitation of well-known lecturers to Guelph. "All that Duncan
said was that he would not help
out," said a student.
A second-year law student led a
slate of progressives to victory in
all but one position on the law
student association executive
Wednesday.
Tom Rafael was elected
president over two other candidates on promises of student
involvement and academic
reform.
The only position candidates
campaigning with Rafael didn't
win was the external vice-
president — who also represents
the LSA on Alma Mater Society
council — which was won by
Parker MacCarthy, law 2.
Elected with Rafael were Gilian
Andrew, law 1, internal vice-
president; David Paterson, law 2,
treasurer; and Donald Crane, law
1, secretary; Kit Rigg, law 2, was
acclaimed ombudsman.
MacCarthy will replace current
LSA vice-president and AMS rep
Gordon Turriff on council starting
Feb. 13. Turriff resigned at the
Wednesday council meeting
because his term does not officially
expire until March 7.

Bid for more control
Halifax profs get union cards
HALIFAX (CUP) — Union cards
have been distributed to St. Mary's
University Faculty Association
members.
Two organizations are attempting to unionize faculty and
become their bargaining agent:
Canadian Union of Public Employees and the Canadian
Association of University
Teachers.
The move to unionization is a bid
by the Faculty Association to win
more say in university government.
A 51 per cent majority vote in
SUB manager
defends
sciencemen
There is nothing to stop
graduating science students from
buying out the Pit if they wish to do
so, SUB building manager Graeme
Vance said Wednesday.
Vance spoke in response to
questions regarding the science 4
students' purchase of all available
tickets for Saturday night for a
meeting in the Pit to discuss
allocation of science graduating
funds. Several students, including
Pit employees, said they had
thought the Pit is not a bookable
facility, and they considered the
purchase of 300 tickets constitutes
a booking.
Vance told The Ubyssey there is
no written policy stating a group or
individual cannot buy a block of
tickets. He pointed out the $300.00
paid for the tickets is an extremely
reasonable price for any group to
pay for an evening's entertainment
as they will be getting a $200.00
band and the use of one of the nicer
pubs in Vancouver.
The SUB management committee was informed last term of
the possibility of such an incident
occurring but chose to do nothing
about it at the time," Vance said.
But Alma Mater Society coordinator Joanne Lindsay said she
does not remember discussion of
this issue in SUB management at
any time.
It didn't occur to me anyone
would buy up all the tickets," she
said.
Lindsay said an individual had
applied to book the Pit shortly after
it opened and the application was
rejected by the SUB management
committee.
Although there is no written
policy on block purchase of tickets,
Lindsay said she felt the precedent
set by not allowing formal
bookings made the feelings of SUB
management clear.
Lindsay said there should be
some sort of restriction on how
many tickets an individual can buy
and she will bring the issue up for
discussion in the next SUB
management meeting on Friday.
favor of either CUPE or CAUT is
necessary for the faculty to
become officially unionized. The
winning organization would
become the bargaining agent.
However, speculation is high
among faculty members that most
will not return their cards,
signifying they do not want to
unionize.
The results of the vote will be
released Feb. 15.
Faculty association president
Jack Ginsberg said unionization is
needed because faculty aren't
adequately represented on the
senate and board of governors.
They have 50 per cent of the votes
on both bodies.
"Most of the bylaws are acceptable to us," said Ginsberg.
"The faculty is satisfied, but it took
so long to get (those bylaws) that
we wasted time."
Ginsberg said faculty resents the
administration view that
professors are "employees" and
claimed "certification will normalize relations between faculty
and administration. It's a legal
device for more fruitful relations."
Officially the board of governors
is neutral in the matter. University
president David Owen Carrigan
said he has "not been instructed by
the board of governors to oppose
faculty unionization."
Privately, however, some board
members view the faculty as "a
pain in the neck," a body with
already too much to say, and
nothing to contribute.
"The faculty are just a bunch of
academics with no knowledge of
how a university should be run, and
no understanding of administration problems," said one
high-ranking administrator.
• In its bid for votes CUPE has
sent copies of the still-pending
Bathurst College contract to the
faculty association. It contains
clauses insuring six months to one
year maternity leave with full pay,
free tuition for faculty dependents,
and 115 per cent pay for faculty on
sabbatical leave after 10 years
with the college.
Philosophy professor Henry
Lackner said faculty unionization,
if it goes through, "will be sticky,
as the Nova Scotia government has
never had to deal with this type of
certification before."
Lackner said he believes faculty
will vote against unionization.
CUPE is the largest of the unions
with only Canadian members. It
has been organizing in the public
sector for 10 years and has 165,000
members. It is a bargaining agent
for 6,000 workers at 20 universities
including UBC, mostly maintenance and other non-academic
workers.
The CAUT is composed of affiliated faculty associations in
Canadian universities and
colleges. Until now CAUT has been
a lobbying and pressure group;
this is the first time it has attempted to win certification as a
bargaining agent.

Bowie Keefer who says he wants to save
the University Endowment Lands needs
help.
"Most students and residents of Vancouver have never really walked through
these woods," Keefer said Wednesday
during a walk through the forests which
surround UBC.
Keefer is a spokesman for the Endowment
Lands regional park committee formed out
of the Dunbar-West Point Grey Area Council
after the provincial government announced
its intention to convert the UEL into a
housing development.
Keefer said the UEL is already being used
by many people who live in the Lower
Mainland.
"There are miles of trails in here and I
doubt that anybody except a few kids really
know all of them," he said.
UEL savior needs
help from students
Keefer said he was
couver   city   council's
The provincial government, because of
the population pressure, has been looking
around for extra space to put housing, and
one of the largest undeveloped spaces left in
the Fraser Valley is the UEL.
While walking down council trail, a path
behind B.C. Research Centre where he
works as an ocean engineer, Keefer pointed
out that "if the government used all of the
(UEL) for housing you've added only two
per cent to the presently built-up area of
Greater Vancouver, but you've lost forever
one-half of the potential park -land of Vancouver."
Around the turn of the century the UEL
was logged off by the Royal Navy for timber
for their ships and now the forest is
regenerating itself.
Keefer said Stanley Park's trees are dying
and the trees will have to be removed in a
few years. The UEL trees will be one of the
last remaining stands of natural forests in
the Lower Mainland in several years, he
said
pleased with Van-
stand, taken last
Tuesday which stated its approval of
leaving the UEL mostly in a park-like state.
He said he hopes the UBC senate, as well as
the Alumni Association, will favor leaving
the area in its natural state.
The regional park committee wants to
create bicycle paths through the UEL.
"Some kids now ride their bikes through
these trails in the summer," he said. "The
committee wants to expand the riding and
walking trails that are already existing and
we think we can reintroduce deer into the
area. Some people think the deer are still
here," Keefer said.
"People now recognize that the qualify of
life is being eroded and we've got to hang on
to what little natural lands we have left in
the Lower Mainland," said Keefer. Page 4

$1.5 million
$1.5 million.
That's how much UBC students have paid, or are
committed to paying, to build sports facilities on this
campus.
Although students have contributed to the
construction of five different sports facilities on this
campus, in only one, the as yet-to-be constructed indoor
pool, do we have any effective control of operations.
Take the example of the War Memorial gymnasium.
A 1947 $5 fee levy collected $367,000 from students
toward gym construction. The administration is now hinting
it might like it for convention use. Students haven't been
asked.
More importantly the gym facilities are part of the
biggest rip-off of all — Recreation UBC. That's where
students pay an extra $5 for supervision and instruction
which they don't want, just to use facilities students helped
pay for.
The argument that the,administration can't afford the
cost of running Rec UBC - $20,000, $5,000 of which the
admin pays, cannot be defended.
When compulsory physical education was cancelled in
the early '60s, the administration saved a bundle. Where did
that money go?
There are a lot of slush funds on this campus. For
example the administration had no trouble finding more
than $100,000 to build a bunch of useless vertical marking
signs which no one can read. And have you ever heard of
Malcolm McGregor's ceremonies office hurting for change?
If the administration is going to take the position that
students will help absorb the costs of a budget it can't
b^^fice, then students should be consulted on all financial
results.
Rec UBC must go, but time is running short to do
something about it because the longer the illegitimate $5 fee
is in existence, the more legitimate it becomes.
A group of students were appointed to the Rec UBC
steering committee last fall on the condition they would
press the administration to pay for the program.
So far no progress has been made, but then
administration appointee Ed Gautschi, who chairs the
committee, gets to call the meetings.
Committee reps George Mapson and Gordon
Blankstein, both members of the Alma Mater Society
exeuctive, promised AMS council Wednesday progress
would be made.
Unless something is done, more drastic action will have
to be taken. Students may have to be urged to use Rec UBC
facilities without paying.
Otherwise the next time the gang in the administration
building can't balance their slush funds, they might ask
students to pay for library books.

The Ubyssey newsside team stormed back from a six goal deficit and
went on to defeat trie sports team in Non-Existent Hockey League (NHL)
action Tuesday night.
The newsside team, hobbled by injuries, to star Liberal Boyd
McConnell and highly-rated defenceman Ryon Guedes, was dealt a further
blow during Jhe pre-game warmup when team manager-coach-statistician
Vaughn Palmer stormed out over a contract dispute.
But despite Palmer's desertion, it was the incredible bench strength he
has given this team through careful trades over the years that produced the
newsside margin of victory.
The dramatic eleventh hour comeback was sparked by bench warmers
Mike Sasges, Gary Coull and Ken "Ken" Dodd, (the Two-Goals-a-Game or
TAG Line), a great second effort by rookie-of-the-year candidate Marise
Savaria and some tight checking by the defensive team of Mark Buckshon
and Lesley Krueger.
A red herring was introduced late in the game when newsside
goaltenders Doug Rushton and Rick'Lymer, on loan from the sports team,
appeared to be letting in more shots than were actually being fired at them.
The pair were dispatched by some quick bludgeoning with, you guessed it,
a red herring.
As for the slumping sports team, the only saving grace was a four goal
performance by Greg "Slapshot" Osadchuk, who came out of the stands
where he works as team photographer to put out a valiant effort in what
turned out to be a losing cause.
Sports' top line of Alan "Pay me, play me, trade me, but don't injure
me" Doree, Ralph Maurer, and the incredible, invisible Peter Leibik turned
in a tepid performance distinguished only by a series of goals deflected in
their own net off Rick Lymer's left buttock.
Sports goalie Tom Barnes was pulled late in the third period in favor
of a stack of soggy iceberg lettuce. It is interesting to note that the lettuce
now leads the league with a sparkling 2.00 goals against average.
Sports' other goalie, Doug Rushton lost even further status in his
trade when referee Palmer ruled the last three newsside goals were actually
scored on an empty net, despite the fact that Rushton was quite clearly
between the pipes for all three.
The teams meet again next week assuming the current state of limbo
in the front office is cleared up.

Darwin's tenure endangered
By ALAN DOREE
UBC law students charged Wednesday that the
recent anthropology department hiring of Charlie
Darwin is illegal.
"There's a precedent in the case of Ali vs. Frazier
clearly cited in the Child's Golden Book of Torts,"
said law student Perry Freemason.
"We interpret this to mean it. is illegal for anyone to
do anything without first being confused by us and
charged exorbitant fees for the privilege.
"We'd like to handle the case as a practical exercise in Law 611, cross-examination techniques in the
Spanish Inquisition mode."
In the initial proceedings before the high student
court of the inquisition, anthropology personnel officer Slavko Vorkapich was stripped to a concrete
block beneath a razor-sharp pendulum blade which
descended with each swing.
"We are rational men, Mr. Vorkapich," said
Freemason. "We only wish to prove that demons in
your body made you hire Chuck Darwin.
"If you die when the blade cuts you in half it means
your body contained no demons and you were in
nocent. If you live it means you are possessed and we
must destroy you."
"But I'm innocent!" cried Vorkapich.
"Then you'll die in purity when the blade hits you
and have nothing to worry about," said Freemason.
"No, I'm really innocent!"
"That remark will be stricken from the record as
totally irrelevant to the question at hand, which is
your guilt or innocence, Mr. Vorkapich," Freemason
said.
The pendulum made its final swing slicing
Vorkapich in half.
"Let the record show the defendant refused to
answer," said Freemason.
"This bodes ill for big Chuck D," Freemason told
The Ubyssey during the after-trial party. "By due
process of law, the whimsical workings of the official
law faculty Ouija board and the influence of various
corrupt bodily fluids, he too must be guilty. Q.E.D."
Said Freemason, who claims he took the case out of
the goodness of his heart and a desire for a passing
mark in law 611: "Take him out to be flogged with the
limp body of a teaching assistant and replace the
entire anthro department with a set of chicken entrails."
Letters
English
On the question of the hiring
practices of the English departmental UBC, may I make a couple
of points. As president Walter
Gage has said, UBC has an advertising policy. But for whatever
reasons English head Robert
Jordan cares to argue, UBC did not
advertise for an English post
nationally, until a late advertisement in January which
announced the closing date for
applications was already past.
No matter how carefully the
English department works, sending individual letters to English
departments and even to
prospective candidates, they still
must do public advertising. There
is heavy under-employment now of
qualified people. Many in community colleges, high schools and
business have access to the
publications. They may well not be
reached by Robert Jordan's
personal writing service.
If I am a little sceptical about
hiring at UBC's English department, it is partly because of the
evidence, Robert Jordan told me
personally a few years ago that the
department hoped to hire 60 per
cent Canadians. I was supposed to
be delighted with his generosity. I
wasn't. And I don't believe that the
English department has even hired
50 per cent Canadians since then. I
could suggest a number of reasons
why, but I will leave them to the
imaginations of your readers.
Secondly, the offerings of
Canadian literature at UBC are
still unsatisfactory. UBC,
Canada's second largest university
and home of the founding
publication, Canadian Literature,
has a very bad record with
Canadian literature. The reason is
that there are so many people in
the department who are antagonistic to it that it has to fight to
exist, never mind to grow properly.
There is not even a full professor
among the people teaching
Canadian lit. Mustn't let them get
any power.
If the English department at
UBC is searching — is genuinely
searching for Canadians — then we
have reached a milestone in
Canadian history. Run up the flag
(and lower the Stars and Stripes).

IH money
We would like to comment on the
proposal of the director of International House that a certain
proportion of student monies be
allocated to the IH. We feel this
proposal is worthwhile but money
is not the main problem at the
moment. The problems are a lack
of direction and the neglect of
human contact. We question
whether obtaining such money will
increase student participation in
IH or its services to the students.
The facts are:
Student participation has
declined because of the deliberate
inaction and disinterest of the
administration. In the past, part-
time student assistants were hired
by the house as liaison and public
relations officers. Their work
contributed to greater student
participation and interaction. This
practice has been discontinued by
the present administration.
There is a lack of flexibility in
programming. The increased
emphasis on ,academic and
research programs are a
detriment to the social and cultural
ones, and appeal to a minority of
the student body. We feel that
academic programs should not be
the main priority of IH because the
function is filled by the university.
The preoccupation with money
manifested by the director was a
necessary one initially, due to the
well-known financial difficulties of
universities, but we feel it has
become an obsession. Some
student-initiated programs were
discontinued because they interfered with the revenue-
increasing functions of IH while at
the same time money was spent on
items without prior consultation
with students and which did not
attract or benefit the students.
Because IH has the potential to
an   exciting   cross-cultural
be
meeting place for all students and
faculty we recommend that the
director follow his words with
action, really listen to students for
change and make his administration responsive to the
needs of students. If this contact is
not made no amount of money will
improve the situation.

Blow up
I have always told myself that
I'd be the last person to give in and
create some of that adverse
publicity that gears always seek.
But here it is: You assholes!
Why those dinks insist on seeking
adverse publicity by blatant
destruction of private property, I'll
never know. I enjoy pranks and
always have. Anything short of
destruction is okay by me, and
granted when they stole our
forestry car a few years back and
returned it to us as a two-foot by
three-foot block of metal, I had to
laugh.
The car was a piece of junk and
didn't run anyhow, and besides, it
probably cost them a 10 spot to
have it crushed.
At the end of the summer, a
graduate forester graciously
donated us his old car as he had
bought a new one. It was a real
honest-to-god car, licensed for the
road. It ran well and survived a
trip all the way down from Quesnel
in September. We needed the car
and used it to cover campus advertising for forestry events, as
well as for functions in support of
the needy. It was a good car,
privately-owned and ran well.
The engine-ring assholes planted
an acetylene bomb in it, blew it
apart and burned it.
Note to the engineers: Glad to
see that the Red Rag was such a
screw up. I imagine that will see
the shit flying for a while. There's
no sense in trying to prove yourselves as the biggest assholes on
campus, because you've certainly
earned that title, and I'm sure no
one will contest it.

Pollute
The Westwater lectures held
fortnightly in the Woodward instructional resources centre are
offering a useful service to UBC
students and off-campus students
of environment. Talks by such
speakers as Cecil Law, Boyce
Richardson and Ian McTaggart-
Cowan are commendable.
However, I was really disturbed
by last Friday's presentation by a
Dr. Erman Pearson, a civil
engineer from the University of
California, Berkeley, not only by
the content and manner of his talk,
but by the students' apparent
unquestioning acceptance of it.
Pearson produced innumerable
figures to show that the ocean is a
vast sink, capable of absorbing all
our "toxic water pollution" without
benefit of treatment, primary,
secondary or tertiary. Only one,
rather timid, objection was raised,
which he glibly disposed of. After
all where can we put the pollution?
It has to go somewhere. No
suggestion that we might limit or
even stop the production of the
hundreds of new organic molecules
which can't be broken down by
nature.
Pearson approached the cost of
pollution control only in terms of
money. The arbitrary federal
requirement for secondary
treatment in San Francisco Bay
over biological oxygen demand
(BOD), sludge (suspended solids)
and fecal caliform bacteria would
cost $10 billion.
"Ridiculous", according to
Pearson. He gave other figures to
show how much pollution "you can
drink". He dealt almost exclusively with metal concentrations and toxicity, ignoring
the hazards of thermal pollution
and radioactivity.
There was little time allowed for
questions — he was taking off for
Paris. Nevertheless some
questions should have been asked:
Whose facts and figures are you
using? Who pays the bill? Who
pays for your frequent journeys to
Paris, Rome, London? The
University of California? Not very
likely. Could it be the companies
and corporations who are
responsible       for       dumping
chemicals, metals, heat and radioactivity into the Paciftc, the
Mediterranean and the North
Seas? It's good practice to judge
the statements of "experts" in
light of their vested interests,
research grants, etc.
Perhaps Pearson and his
sponsors don't care that DDT is
found in penguins at the South Pole
and radiation in the caribou in the
Arctic. Perhaps he hasn't heard
Thor Heyerdahl's report of great
globs of tar floating right across
the Atlantic, or Dr. Murray
Newman's warning that "we are
letting modern science and
technology turn the sea into a great
dead cesspool."
Jacques-Yves Cousteau never
ceases in his warnings that the sea
is a biological complex which we
are destroying before we can use
its oxygen and its potential food
supply. Paul Erlich wrote an article in Ramparts (Sept. '69) called
"The Year the Ocean Died". The
year was 1979 A.D. Barry Commoner writes that pollution of
coastal waters is already infecting
swimmers on European beaches,
and warns of possible catastrophic
health problems if nothing is done.
(Closing Circle, pp. 21-20) Barry
Weisberg cites tremendous
amounts of DDT, lead, atomic
wastes, chemical and biological
warfare agents being dumped into
the ocean. (Beyond Repair, pp. 67-
8) Wesley Marx describes the
"potential of havoc" in oil and
hydrocarbons in the ocean, and the
hopeless task of trying to clean up
the "uncleanable".
But Colin Moorcraft has summed
it all up in Must the Seas Die? He
describes the results of the
Massachusets Institute of
Technology research on a small
Woods Hole oilspill. His chapters
on oil (Black Death) and radioactivity are terrifying. It's in
paperback.
Read it.

Racism
It is distressing to see a new
racist expression, "blue-eyed
Arab" (quoted in The Ubyssey,
Feb. 5), gaining currency.
Generalizations about ethnic or
racial groups are to be avoided
because they create a stereotype
that obscures the existence of
individual personalities; this
applies to the implicit notion of a
single Arab physiognomy, as it
does to the equally offensive idea
that all Orientals look alike.
In addition, these generalizations ate usually false. Many
Arabs are fair-haired with blue or
green eyes. Furthermore, the
dominant Canadian type is not the
blond, blue-eyed Aryan giant that
Hitler dreamed of.
If professor Mike Wallace, who
said this, finds what the Arabs are
doing to his taste, he should find a
less racist way of saying., so. He
would also do well to bear in mind
that a worm that turns remains a
worm.

Sports desk comes
through for big win
By ALAN DOREE
The Ubyssey sports desk came through big
Tuesday night despite harassment from an enfeebled
newsside team and Recreation UBC.
The sports desk racked up an impressive 13-6 win
against newsside in a floor hockey game crucial to
first place in the two-team NHL (Non-existent
Hockey League).
In doing so the sportsmen overcame their own
complete lack of talent and the efforts of Rec UBC to
have them mentally removed by the campus secret
police,, who unable to remove people physically, must
sit outside and wish them away.
Newsside were never in danger of winning as Greg
"The Hammer" Osadchuk paced the sports attack
with four goals. Rick "The Ricket" Lymer, team
captain, backup, shortstop and presidential candidate added two more, as did Adequate Alan "Pay
me or trade me, or curse the god that made me.
you're a better right winger than I am Gunga Din'
Doree.
Ralph "The Pocket Ricket" Maurer scored his
second consecutive card trick and pulled a penalty
box out of Ken Dodd's bloody knee as the newsside
goalie sprawled across his coach Vaughn Palmer in a
moment of weakness.
Tom Barnes also scored twice for sports, while
Lesley "Krunch" Krueger, Marise "The Mauler"
Savaria and Mike "The Madman" Sasges watched in
confusion as Mark Buckshon and Doug Rushton
changed sides while play went on and oirand on and
on.
Resplendent Gary Coull, inconspicuous in his
lemon-yellow uniform and candy-floss hairdo, ran up
and down the walls all night chasing after an ether-
soaked sponge which he insists runs the university
and keeps the NHL's statistics.
Wins boost wrestling
With only two of last year's
divisional winners returning this
time it looks like anyone's game.
Although the competition will be
tough UBC, by virtue of their
strength in the upper weight
classes, is going with hopes of
bringing back the first Canada
West Championship of the year.
One of last year's divisional
champions who is eligible to return
in the Bird's Teras Hryb, the
defending Canada West, Canadian
Intercollegiate, Canadian Open
Champion as well as a medal
winner in last month's Commonwealth Games.
Hryb was injured in the Games
and his status is yet unknown. Bird
head coach Bob Laycoe won't know
for sure if Hryb will be available
until he returns next week. Until
then Laycoe has him listed as a
doubtful starter.

Victories over Pacific Lutheran
University and Centralia College
boosted UBC Thunderbird
wrestling team record to 9-3-1,
finest in the team's history.
The Birds wound up their season
with a 30-17 pasting of Pacific
Lutheran Friday, then moved to
Centralia to record a 25-15 win.
UBC's superiority in the upper
weight classes was evident as they
swept the top five divisions.
Mike Richey, 158 pounds; Craig
Delahunt, 167 pounds; Phillippe
Markon, 177 pounds; George
Richey, 190 pounds; and heavyweight Kyle Raymond led the
onslaught.
" The wrestlers now enjoy a two-
week holiday during which they
will devote their energies to nursing any injuries they may have
and prepare for the Canada West
University Championships.
Contract mile deadline
entries turn up and in
The contract mile deadline is Friday. So far 30 entries have been
turned in. In this event each competitor predicts his finishing time and
the person who completes the mile in a time closest to his prediction
wins. The contract mile will be held on Feb. 14 at noon at the John Owen
Pavilion track.
The wrestling weigh-in is on Feb. 15 at noon in the War Memorial gym
change room. The wrestling will take place on Feb. 25,27 and 28.
The second annual basketball tournament will be run from March 4-8
with the final on March 8 at noon, in War Memorial gym. The tournament games will go all day as there will be 16 teams fighting for the
championship.
In super-league basketball action on Monday, medicine defeated
betas by a score of 36-24. Medicine completely dominated the game
motivated by making a run for the division championship.
The super-league hockey playoffs will begin on Feb. 14. Unit
managers are reminded to watch the schedule for correct times and
dates.
healthy bodies left around to make
UBC a power to be reckoned with.
Mike Richey, with a record of 16-
6-0, had a good season and is given
a good chance of taking his
division.
Craig Delehunt hopes to drop to
the 167-pound class, if he does he
will definitely be given good odds
of coming out victorious.
Phillippe Markon, 9-4-0, hadn't
seen quite as much action as some
of his teammates but when he has
he's looked impressive. Laycoe
hopes to have him drop ten pounds
and enter the 177-pound class. If he
makes the weight he will be considered a favorite.
George Richey has had an
outstanding season, boasting a 17-
1-0 record and is another favorite,
this time in the 190-pound class.
Kyle Raymond, the big Thunderbird heavyweight, also had a
fine year, finishing 15-2-0. He will
be considered a favorite to bring
home the heavyweight title.
John Davison was 8-6-0 at 118
pounds for the season and could do
well in his division. Lucio Petrin
was 9-9-0 in the 142-pound weight
class and likewise could come up
with a good showing.
Laycoe figures it's going to take
four division titles to capture the
team championship. The Richey
brothers, Delahunt, and Raymond
should be able to do just that. If
Markon can make the weight and if
Hryb is able to wrestle the task will
be even less difficult.

You probably don't believe
that this is for real, but Sinclair of England has developed a super-thin calculator
that is thinner than a pen. It
has all the functions including constant and chain operations,  and is guaranteed unconditionally for
five years.  It's a little
more expensive than the
cheaper toy-type calculators on the market, but
this professional unit is
truly pocket size! It is
worth its weight in prestige the first time you
pull it out of your pocket   and   amaze   your
friends.
