'Vulgar'gears disrupt Bimini pickets
In a display of "vulgar immaturity," about 25 UBC
engineering students went strikebreaking Friday in an attempt to
disrupt the picket line in front ot
the Bimini neighborhood pub.
"They were vulgar, disgusting
and childish," said Marnie Maser,
a Service, Office and Retail
Workers' Union of Canada
(SORWUC) member. Maser was
picketing at the time the incidence
"After meeting at Bimini's for
drinks, they became quite rowdy,"
she said. "They tried to harass us
(the picketers). Supposedly, they
wanted to break up the picket line,
and they did some pretty
disgusting things to do so."
Maser would not fully describe
the engineers' actions, but cited
sexual connotations as the reason
behind the vulgarity label.
"The engineers were acting like
they always do ... immaturely,"
said Maser.
Ihe engineering undergraduate
society did not organize or encourage participation in the action,
engineering sources said Monday.
EUS president Joe Uyesugi could
not be reached for comment.
The Bimini strike is now in its
nineteenth day.
Contract negotiations resumed
last week, but union and
management have failed so far to
reach an agreement on the employees' first contract.
Bimini employees originally
received certification last January
and were the first pub workers in
B.C. to have done so.
Bimini waitress and SORWUC
organizer Margot Holmes blames
Bimini owner Peter Uram for the
delay in contract signing.
"Management is acting very
negatively to the whole idea of
negotiating," said Holmes. "Uram
is much more interested in the
proposition of breaking our strike.
"Not only has Uram been
leafletingmostof Kitsilano and the
Endowment Lands, but he has
even gone as far as to threaten to
close Bimini's," she said.
In what the union considers a
desperate move, Uram has
distributed hundreds of advertising circulars to west-side
residents. The leaflets offer low-
price luncheon specials and tell
management's position on the
When contacted Friday, Uram
refused to comment.
Holmes said it is extremely
unlikely Uram will close the pub.
"Bimini's is a veritable gold
mine," said Holmes. "If Uram
decides to close, it will hurt him
much more than if he simply
hammered out a decent agreement
with his employees."
The union has threatened to
remain on strike until Christmas if
necessary. Union and
management both estimate
business at Bimini's has decreased
by at least 90 per cent since the
strike began.
Holmes also questioned the
validity of statements made by
Bimini assistant manager Doug
Berry. Berry was quoted in the
Nov. 3 issue of The Ubyssey as
saying SORWUC was refusing to
allow the Bimini waitresses to roll
back their demands.
"Berry really doesn't know what
he's talking about," Holmes said.
"We (the waitresses) wrote the
entire proposed contract and
SORWUC has really been a help in
the whole matter. This is just
another example of the kind of
crap the management has been
dishing out."
Canadian University Press
Women and men marched,
talked and listened in major cities
across Canada Saturday as part of
a national day of protest opposing
violence against women.
The marches, demonstrations
and workshops — held in cities
including Ottawa, Toronto, Vancouver, Winnipeg, Regina,
Saskatoon and Edmonton —
protested the growing incidence of
rape, both in the streets and in the
home, battering, sexual
harassment of women on the job,
and the media portrayal of women
as victims.
And among the themes which
emerged from the national
protests were:
• Rape is less an attempt to gain
sexual gratification than a way of
asserting power, of dominating
and humiliating the victim;
• rape should be redefined in the
Criminal Code, possibly as assault
rather than sexual violation, so
convictions could be gained more
• women should learn the
physical and psychological skills of
self defence; and
• women, rather than
politicians, police and social
service agencies, are going to
ultimately have to erase the
existing stereotypes of men and
women that are largely responsible for violence against women.
In Toronto, about 200 people
attended daytime seminars at a
community centre and later
marched downtown. The Toronto
march was capped by about 20
women rushing into and closing a
downtown theatre which was
showing Snuff, an American film
showing rape, torture and
Snuff films, which have been
becoming increasingly widespread, involve filming women,
frequently Mexican women, who
have been kidnapped, being raped,
tortured and then killed.
About 200 people stood outside
the theatre during the spontaneous
rush inside. Onlookers-jostled with
city police, as 10 police cars and a
paddy wagon stood by. However,
the theatre was open again for
business the following day.
In Ottawa, about 100 women and
a handful of men marched through
Die centre of the capital, carrying
placards and saying "Stop violence
against women." A spokesperson
said the purpose of the mardi was
to let victims of violence know that
others are concerned about the
way they are being treated.
Volunteers from the Ottawa rape
crisis centre said physical and
verbal abuse of women in the city's
downtown area have increased
dramatically in recent months.
Helen Levine, a representative
from a local halfway house for
battered women, said it's difficult

WAR media tactics hurt good cause
Women Against Rape is a group whose
aims and ideals are headed for failure if
group members continue their alienating
And it's sad, because their demands are
sensible and important.
WAR, an international movement, started
in the mid-1970s, held a series of demonstrations in towns and cities across Canada
Saturday. In B.C., there were demonstrations
in 12 communities, including Vancouver.
Vancouver's rally took place on the steps of
the downtown courthouse and took the form of
a tribunal which judged rapists and seven
societal institutions.
Despite icy rain, about 200 people showed
up to take part in the proceedings. Some of the
people were from the media.
And many of the media members were
During the week preceding the demon-
stration, most newspapers and other media
groups in Vancouver received a media
package which, among other things,
demanded that only women reporters sympathetic to the group cover the event. And
there were to be no male photographers or
television crew members.
Ihe group also demanded final editorial
approval rights.
This is an insult to every male reporter and
technician in Vancouver who supports the
women's movement.
A WAR spokeswoman said Monday the
group wanted to exclude male members of
the press because of past treatment of the
women's movement by the media.
It is true that the media has often ridiculed,
either subtly or blatantly, the movement. But
to place the blame on male reporters, rather
than on editors and advertising business
pressure is unfair and sexist.
The group is assuming that a woman has a
better chance of getting a fair story published
or broadcast. The group is assuming that a
woman photographer is going to take a more
sympathetic picture.
Sexism is sexism no matter who's practising it. And women more than men should
recognize sexism because they have been on
the receiving end for too long.
To turn around and do it back doesn't solve
anything and only succeeds in causing bitterness.
In addition to being sexist, WAR is hurting
the many women who are members of the
institutions that came under attack Saturday.
It is doing so by gross generalizations made
under the guise of testifying against the institutions of the economic system — marriage
and the family, the church and organized
religion, the education system, the legal
system, the medical system and the media.

Indians must retain traditions
Canadian Indians must integrate
with white society while preserving their traditional beliefs, a
B.C. Indian educator said Monday.
"Integration into Canadian
society is the only choice for every
Indian," Robert Sterling said.
"This means taking the best of
the Indian culture and relating it to
both the Indian population and the
rest of the Canadian population."
Sterling, chairman of the board
for the Native Indian Teachers
Education Program (NITEP),
said that education is a major
factor that will assist the Indian
people in taking a place in
Canadian society.
"Indian traditions and beliefs
say that we are the most advanced
people in the world," Sterling said.
"Our beliefs are the same beliefs
that the dominant members of
Canadian society are aspiring to.
"Assimilation means giving up
our beliefs and segregation has
never been successful," Sterling
"Integration and education are
the most meaningful ways of
combining our traditional Indian
beliefs with modern society."
Steriing said society must take
another look at the meaning of the
words training and education.
"Training means that people are
given skills and in the Indian
tradition Indians have been trained
from birth in skills such as hunting
and fishing," he said.
"This type of education was the
responsibility of the parents and
they felt belittled when they encountered the white society where
education is the responsibility of
the government," Sterling said.
"Education is an everyday thing
and our parents would be
astounded by the knowledge that
NITEP students have acquired
just through association with the
Sterling said that although the
Indians have made progress in
education, in B.C. there has been
some exploitation of the system.
"Because of the aggressive
tactics of the Indian leaders and
because we needed people in the
field fast some Indian students got
through school without learning a
thing," he said.
Sterling said that some of
NITEP's progress was due to the
leaders' exploitation of the system.
"We discovered that the three
major universities in B.C. were in
competition and we took advantage of this to promote our
programs," he said.
"In 1973 someone pointed out to
Dave Barrett that there were more
totem poles on the UBC campus
than there were Indian students
and he said that if the Indian
people could come up with a good
program he would bade it.
"Our NITEP was almost ready
at that time so we presented it to
Barrett and reminded him of the
statement he had made." As a
result the government implemented the program at UBC.

WAR protest hurts women's movement
Fiom page 1
Nobody can deny that these
institutions in many ways, both
direct and indirect, can be held
responsible for rape, itself an institution.
WAR says women rely on men
for economic support, even those
women who work. This, the group
says, is because they are either dependent on husbands or lovers for
support, or upon male employers.
But what about female employers? There are some women
who employ women and thus give
them economic support. And not
all women rdy on their husbands
for money.
Marriage and the family lead to
sexual blackmail, dependency and
servitude, says WAR. But not all
women who have families are
And at the rally, there were
mothers  with  their   children,
cheering support for the group.
Must these women be condemned
for their lifestyle? Because this is
what WAR essentially is doing.
Why put down your supporters?
Marriage is legalized rape, WAR
Sometimes this is true. A woman
cannot charge her husband with
rape. This is wrong and should be
changed. One of WAR'S demands
says: "Rape of a woman by her
husband must be recognized as a
criminal offence."
That is a reasonable demand.
But why run the ride of people
ignoring a reasonable demand by
hiding it in a cloak of
generalization and sexism?
The   education   system   was
denounced for prolonging sexual
inequality and contributing to
attitudes that keep rape entrenched in society. Again, this is
true. But WAR should not forget
about groups such as the B.C.
Teachers' Federation which are
trying toeradicate sexist teachings
in schools.
WAR condemned the medical
profession for contributing to
feelings of mental and physical
inferiority in women. The medical
profession often does do this by
treating women as if they were
mentally deficient and not able to
look after their own bodies
But this does a disservice to the
many dedicated women doctors,
nurses and health workers in the
It insinuates that organizations
such as the Women's Health
Collective in Vancouver are taking
sexist attitudes. How many women
doctors, hearing a blanket condemnation of their profession as
contributing to rape, are going to
be sympathetic to WAR's aims?
Ihe group is going to need
women professionals in the field to
fight for them from the inside.
Demands involving the medical
profession include hospital teams
comprised solely of women trained
to deal with rape.
This is an excellent suggestion,
but it will be easier to put into
practice if women in the field
aren't antagonized by sweeping
The judicial system was
deservedly criticized for the way it
treats women who are victims of
rape. Often women are laughed at
and humiliated by police officers
and court personnel.
But there are, in many cities,
teams of women police officers
who are assigned to work with rape
victims. And judges and lawyers
are not exclusively men.
"Indians are involved in an ongoing battle to prove that we are
not j ust a step away from primitive
society," he said.
"For the first time in history our
Indian chiefs are young men. Our
older chiefs could not communicate with the dominant
"Younger leaders can shape
Indian traditions to accommodate
a new age and help us to carry our
dream of integration and individual self reliance forward."

Economic state causes
illusory student apathy
Students are apathetic these days and
don't care about what is happening around
them, or so a lot of people say.
But this apathy is simply a human reaction to the poor economic conditions which
hit the western world simultaneously with
the 1970s.
One of the first victims of poor economic
conditions were the educated. Even before
mass unemployment struck Canada and the
U.S., it was quite apparent that a university
degree was no longer a guarantee of a
highpaying job, let alone any job. Student
activism was dealt a mortal blow.
The 1960s marked the height of the
post-Second World War economic boom, and
most students didn't have to worry about
jobs and survival. The student activism
movement of the period was largely directionless, except for opposition to the Vietnam war and to 'the system' in general.
The number of people who have thought
out how our faulty socio-economic system
can be radically improved is no smaller, or
no larger, than 10 years ago. Members of
what media hype called the 'new left' have
by and large disappeared into middle class
On campus today, the student body has
taken an apparent turn to the right. Student
'Councillors do little but strut their stuff at
meetings. Service organizations on campus
are begging for members to help with the
hard work, but get no takers unless there is
career potential in the work.
But now jobs are scarce, the economy is
slow and students are busy getting those
good marks in professional and job-oriented
faculties. In short, to use the popular term,
everybody is 'looking out for number one.'
It is a sad situation that when the faults
in our corporate system loom larger than
ever, the victims of the slow economy,
including students, turn their backs. Mind
you, this happened before during the
Prosperity — and student activism — will
not be back for a long time. The political
atmosphere is favorable to business, despite
the fact that lack of business investment is
to a large degree responsible for continued
economic sluggishness.
But why should they improve the economy? Business profits are climbing; and few
are questioning their power. When students
don't know if they'll have a decent job ,
questioning society becomes a low priority.

An eerie sound emanated from the usually cheerful Used-to-be office. Chris

shouted a repenting Verne McDonald. Marcus Gee thought the end had come
and Tom Hawthorn jammed his fingers In his ears to escape the din. Heather
Conn and Dave Dixon had fled early but BUI Tieleman and Steve Howard
were not so lucky, falling to heed the dire warnings. Vicki Booth, Gray Kyles
and Lloyanne Hurd were thankfully unaware of the night of terror that was
occurring. Carl Vesterback pleaded for mercy but the dreaded tones lingered
on. Don Maclntyre, Tom Barnes and Doug Field had no Idea what pain and
suffering was going on at the office at 6:30. Only Mike Bocking was
unaffected. "What's the matter," the SRA veteran asked, "haven't you ever
heard the Slhota-Sandhu comedy hour?"
A letter appeared in The
Ubyssey (Oct. 27) which chastised
officials and employees of the Pit
for less than adequate service. The
author, Dan Thompson, wets obviously speaking in a sarcastic and
humorous manner, but his point is
well taken.
Prompt service is not totally
lacking in the Pit — some waiters
do make a point of earning their
wages. However, most patrons of
our beloved watering hole will
realize that it is possible to sit,
More pity
It would seem that my earlier
letter concerning the Pit caused
something of a stir. Unfortunately,
some people do not know the difference between sarcasm and
dedicated reporting of observed
fact. Admittedly, my earlier letter
was an overstatement of true
conditions in the Pit and that is
exactly what it was intended to be.
I would also like to point out that
it is an age-old dent in human
nature to criticize the bad while
ignoring the good. I am told that
approximately 80 students are
employed in the Pit, and I will
gladly admit that many of these
people do an excellent job. These
people are making between $3.75
and $4.25 per hour with no prospect
of tips or an increase in the future
(they just got a $.25/hr. cost of
living increase).
I still think that in general service in the Pit is not what it should
be and that my previous letter
would not have caused any reaction if nobody shared my opinion.
But please, don't indiscriminately
harass the waiters. If your waiter
is doing a good job, let him and the
management know about it.
If the waiter is not overly efficient, let the management know
and press your point home. I think
everybody agrees that the Pit has
its problems, so why don't those
concerned quit with the hit and run
tactics and sit down to talk it out
like the mature adults they are
supposed to be. (Oops, I think that
sounded a touch hypocritical.)

waving like an aging hooker, with
dry throat and all but useless Pit
token as myopic waiters find less
strenuous distractions to occupy
their time.
This poor service comes on the
heels of a hike in beer prices and a
crackdown on anything remotely
resembling healthy spirit, faculty
or otherwise. Such subversive and
potentially destructive acts as
good-natured aggie or engineer
cheers are met with instant
reprimands and/or forcible
Prices are increased and the
saddened student enters the Pit
consoling himself with the hope
that service will be satisfactory —
possibly the swill they palm off as
draught beer will even be
drinkable. However, if he is lucky
enough to find a waiter who will
bring him a glass of draught, he
will need as much luck again in
order to get it down and keep it
The points, therefore, are these:
higher prices, poorer service,
suppression of high spirits, and
shitty draught beer. Obviously the
waiters don't dictate prices, select
draught beer, or chew
noisemakers out just because
they're feeling nasty or didn't get
any last night. And, just as obviously, those people who run the
Pit aren't telling the waiters to get
out and do their job.
Something stinks up top.

Vital point decides Sun case
hi an article on the Vancouver
Sun-Gay Alliance case in the Oct.
25 Ubyssey, Cam Osborne stated
that the B.C. Court of Appeal
missed the point in its decision and
decided "on what amounts to a
He sees the essential issue as
freedom of the press, on one hand,
and links the Sun's right to refuse
the Gay Alliance Toward Equality
ad with a private person's freedom
to associate on the other. I think it
is Osborne who has missed the
He has lost sight of the essential
fact that the classified ads section
of the Sun is a service
"customarily available to the
public." In doing so, he has confused the newspaper's right of
control over the content of its news
stories and editorials with its right
to discriminate in offering a service to the public. The issue, also,
is not whether the Sun or its staff
should be made to associate with
gays, but whether the Sun can pick
and choose to whom it offers its
'pubic' services.
In deciding the case, the Court of
Appeal met these issues head on,
within the framework of the
province's Human Rights
legislation, as it must. Section
three of the B.C. Human Rights
Code says: "No person shall deny
to any person or class of persons
any accommodation, service, or
facility customarily available to
the public; . .. unless reasonable
cause exists for such denial. . ."
It goes on to say that race,
religion, color, ancestry or place of
origin cannot be reasonable cause
and that the sex of a person can
only be reasonable cause in certain
specified circumstances. It should
be noted that the code is
deliberately framed wider than the
human rights legislation of other
provinces which merely prohibit
denial or discrimination on the
basis of race, religion, color, etc.
In other provinces there can be

GAY ALLIANCE ... protests Sun policy outside Pacific Press building
whether the discrimination is
"reasonable" or not.
Ihe Sun argued that it denied the
use of its classified ads to the gay
alliance due to newspaper policy
based on its belief that homosexuality is offensive to public
decency, and that publishing the ad
would offend some of its subscribers and violate the Code of
Advertising Standards. The irony
of this position when one compares
thegayalliance'sinnocuous, three-
line, small-type ad with the Sun's
regular movie ads was not lost on
the Human Rights Commission
board of inquiry, or the supreme
court judge.
The court of appeal had to
decide, among other things, if the
policy of the newspaper constituted
"reasonable cause" for the purposes of the code. This is not a
technicality but is the crux on
which the code turns. The interpretation given to the phrase
"reasonable cause" has a great
effect on the scope and effectiveness of the code. Osborne asserted
that the court "made the right
decision for the wrong reasons."
Whether or not the decision was
right, the court was certainly
looking at the right reasons.
The supreme court judge held
that the publisher's having
"rational grounds" for believing
that the advertisement is offensive
or unacceptable or contrary to the
interests of the public at large or
some portion of it is not in itself,
reasonable cause for refusing to
publish the ad. Mr. Justice Seaton,
in his dissenting judgment in the
court of appeal, agreed with this
and held that there was in fact no
reasonable cause in this case.
Ihe majority, however, noted
that the board of inquiry had found
that the newspaper's policy was
based on a personal bias against
homosexuality "on the part of
various individuals within the
management of the
newspaper. . ."andconcluded that
this was why the board had found
that there was no reasonable
They made the point that the
motivation behind the policy is not
a good reason for finding that the
policy was not reasonable. This
point is quite valid: if the
newspaper's policy was reasonable
it was so regardless of the
motivation behind it. But, as Mr.
Justice Seaton pointed out, this
finding was in addition to, and not
the basis of, the finding of the
board that there was a violation of
the code. He pointed out that there
was a dissent on the finding of bias
but no dissent on the finding that
there was a violation.
Having criticized what they took
to be the board's approach to the
question, the majority also
disagreed with its conclusion. The
board said, "the acceptable
standard of decency which we wish
our society to maintain is in no way
threatened or challenged by our
taking, as a society, a tolerant and
mature approach to those homosexuals who are not breaking the
law ai.d who seek only the right to
live normally in society without
fear of persecution or
In short, the board found that the
newspaper's concern for public
decency was not reasonable cause
for refusing that particular advertisement.
The majority of the court of
appeal saw this view of
"reasonable cause" as being much
too narrow. Mr. Justice Robertson
said that what the board was in
fact doing was adding homosexuality to the list "race, religion,
color, ancestry, or place of origin,"
which clearly it does not have the
authority to do.
Mr. Justice Branca, with Mr.
Justice Robertson agreeing, said:
"Many people in our society may
well entertain a bias or some predisposition against homosexuals or
homosexuality on moral and/or
religious grounds. It cannot
therefore be justly said that a bias
so held has no reasonable foundation."
He went on to say that since the
newspaper's policy was based on a
bias which was "reasonable and
honestly entertained" there was
reasonable cause to reject the ad.
His reasoning is not completely
clear to me but he seems to be
saying that one has reasonable
cause to discriminate if the discrimination is due to a bias based
on rational grounds (even if badly
reasoned), and if the bias is held in
good faith, subject of course to the
stipulation that race, religion,
color, etc., can never constitute
'reasonable cause.'
Obviously, this decision greatly
restricts the scope of the code in
dealing with discrimination other
than due to race, religion, etc., and
brings it more into line with the
legislation of other provinces. The
test becomes, what does the person
giving the public service, accommodation, etc., honestly
believe to be reasonable, as opposed to what does society consider
to be reasonable in that situation?
Ihe idea of compelling persons
offering facilities to the public to
accept everyone, or be able to
justify their exclusion, is not new:
under English common law, innkeepers for centuries have had to
accept all comers, subject to very
few exceptions. The question is, as
I think Osborne would
acknowledge, 'are we infringing
the civil rights of the person offering the service to the public by
compelling him to accept
everyone; or would we be doing a
greater disservice to the civil
rights of those who would otherwise be excluded from the public
by not so compelling him?'
I understand that the case has
been appealed and the Supreme
Court of Canada will have its say.

Dinos edge 'Birds
in grid title game
Lack of depth at centre may
have cost the UBC Thunderbirds
their second Western Intercollegiate Football League title in
as many years. A high snap from
fullback Gord Penn on a last-
minute field goal attempt by Gary
Metz caused the kick to go wide
and Calgary Dinosaurs finished
with a 13-12 win before 9,000 fans at
Calgary's McMahon Stadium
Friday night
Centre Mark Wald was injured in
the first quarter, and coach Frank
Smith was obliged to press Penn
into service in an unfamiliar
position. UBC had trouble snapping the ball the entire game.
The gaffe marred an otherwise
classic contest. Both teams put on
brilliant offensive displays despite
the low score, moving well both on
the ground and through the air.
UBC halfback Glen Wallace rushed
for 101 yards and quarterback Dan
Smith passed for 252 more.
Dinosaur fullback John McCoq-
quindale gained 134 yards on the
ground while quarterback Darrell
Moir passed for 288 yards.
The loss brought UBC's record to
5-5-1 on the year, including
exhibition games. After a
disastrous early-season start in
which they lost two and tied one in
their first three games, the 'Birds
turned things around, winning four
of their last five.
Despite that, UBC had to rely on
a late-season collapse by early
league-leaders Alberta Golden
Bears to back into the playoffs
Another highlight in the 'Birds'
season occurred in exhibition play.
Amid continuing controversy
about the relative merits of UBC's
football program as compared to
SFU's, the Thunderbirds went into
Tacoma and narrowly dropped a
21-20 loss to the University of Puget
Sound Loggers, a team that had
earlier defeated SFU 44-12 at
Empire Stadium.
The good showing by the 'Birds
in the so-called Comparison Bowl
pointed out that an athletic
scholarship program is not
necessarily a prerequisite to
athletic excellence. The result also
added strength to the argument
that the cross-town Shrum Bowl,
discontinued because of SFU's
embarrassing superiority, should
be resumed.
The 'Birds should be strong
again next year. Glen Wallace and
Gord Penn will be gone, but Penn
didn't play up to par this year, and
several younger runners are
waiting in the wings. Quarterback

UBC started slowly, trailing at

strength of superior rebounding
and a porous Paddy's defence.

worked well under the boards,

On offence in that first half,
guards Chris Trumpy, Bill Berzins
and Jim Coady penetrated well,
getting the ball into Adilman and
Cholyk in close. UBC pressed after
baskets, tieing up Paddy's in the
backcourt with a 2-2-1 zone press.
But by the second half the more
experienced Paddy's players had
solved UBC's press, and found
their shooting range. The 'Birds'
shooters went cold, and Cholyk
fouled out, leaving Adilman as the
only effective UBC rebounder.

n the final 10 minutes of play, to
Dace the Thunderbird rugby team
io a 23-9 victory over the division-
leading Meralomas in first-division
action Saturday afternoon at
Connaught Park.
The win moves UBC to within
two points of first place with two
games in hand over the 'Lomas.
Ihe 'Birds have the advantage of
having played each of the three
teams ahead of them in the stan
dings and have come away with
two victories.
In Saturday's match David
Whyte spotted the 'Birds to a 3-0
lead with a penalty kick early in
the game. Wiley's first try was set
up mid way through the half by a
long clearing kick from fullback
Graham Taylor that went into
touch deep in Meraloma territory.
The ball was tapped to Wiley from
thelineout and he made a mad but
successful dash for the goal line.
Whyte's convert attempt was wide.
The 'Lomas narrowed the gap to
7-3 with a double-carom penalty
kick that glanced off an upright
and the crossbar.
Late in the half UBC scored
another try, this time on a backline
movement. Hooker Henry Edmunds positioned himself inside of
Whyte as the ball moved inside the
five-metre line with one 'Lorna
defender to beat. Edmunds took a
pass from Whyte and wait into the
end zone untouched and made for
an easy convert by placing the ball
beside the post.

The UBC Junior Varsity basketball team showed flashes of individual talent Friday evening, but
not enough to spark a victory at
Memorial Gym.
The Jayvees dropped an 83-73
decision to Ruby's Raiders, a
pickup team made up of ex-
Thunderbirds and Dogwood
League players. The game, an
annual affair, marks the first loss
for rookie head coach Terry Wood.
The junior 'Birds are lacking in
defensive ability and offensive cooperation. As of yet they have not
accepted the proposition that
basketball is a team game.
A pronounced lack of height will
dictate a running style on offense.
A strong backcourt is led by Ian
McKinnon, a 77 grad from Vancouver College.
Bright spots in the forecourt
include Al Hall, who was UBC's
high scorer, with nine, and Burt
Dennis, a quick forward with an
eye for iron. Dennis got loose for
seven points.
The Raiders had three men in
double figures. Bill Ruby scored 21,
Darrell Giernes 19 and ex-

John Connors scored both goals
for the Blues. His first came in the
39th minute when UBC player
Kenny Garrett made a bad call for
a pass.
After Garrett missed the ball,
the Blues picked it up and their
five-man rush caught the 'Bird

a hard drive from 20 yards that left
'keeper Kelly McKnight no chance.
"They're just not tough enough

The 'Birds are nearing the midpoint of the season and will face
demotion to the Second Division at
the end of the season unless they
can pull themselves out of the First
Division cellar.
Their next chance comes at 2
pjn. Friday against Lobbans at
Capilano Stadium.
In the second half, the
Meralomas pressed the 'Birds,
hard, keeping the ball inside the 22-
metre line for more than 15
minutes. At the peak of this
pressure a scrum was formed near
the UBC goal line. The 'Birds won
the ball, which was sent to fly half
Gary Hiriyama, who tried to kick
the ball clear. A 'Lorna blocked the
kick and fell on the loose ball in the
end zone to score the 'Lomas' only
try. The convert narrowed the
count to 13-9.
From then on, UBC kept the ball
out of danger. Wiley's final two
tries came off rucks in the Meraloma end. Wiley showed his speed
by sprinting down the sideline from
20metres. On the final scoring play
he got the ball on the five-metre
line, faked passes to both sides,
then plunged in. Whyte converted
the last try.
Thunderbird coach Donn Spence
was more than satisfied with his
team's play.
"I think it was the best team
effort we put together this season,"
said Spence. "Everyone played
their positions well on defence and
the forwards were getting our
backs the ball.
"Our scrum was outsized and
there must have been close to 50
scrums in the game, but we got our
share of the ball."
UBC's next game will be at 2:30
p.m. Friday at Thunderbird
Stadium when it takes on the
Fraser Valley representative in
the opening round of McKechnie
cup play. The defending Cup
champion 'Birds are expecting a
tough match because Fraser
Valley defeated the Vancouver
reps twice last year.

Women fight against rape
From page 1
for women to know when to fight
back against abuse because "we
are taught to be docile, submissive
and dependent."
She added that although most
women never suffer physical
abuse, most women are battered
one way or another — financially,
occupationally or psychologically.
In Saskatoon, about 200 people
attended a seminar in which
speakers termed rape "just the tip
of the iceberg of sexism."
Saskatoon feminist Wessia Kola-
sinska said rape is a way to
humiliate and control the victim.
"Rape should be treated as a
political act. It is a part of the
patriarchal system, an act by
which men ensure that women are
kept down and are too ashamed to
talk about it."
She added: "We are taught that
men are our protectors: the man
takes you out, pays for your meals,
opens the door, protects you from
other men. Then he can take you
home and rape you. Yes, men are
our 'protectors,' but who is
protecting us from our protectors?"
In Regina, about 50 people
gathered at the city's public
library to hear about what legal
recourse is available for rape
victims, preventive measures,
reasons why rape occurs and
personal accounts of how
devastating rape can be for the
Speaker Pat Cavanaugh said
rape exists because of sex role
stereotyping. "Where men are
trained to take what they want
sexually and women are taught to
be coy and not honest about their
sexuality, rape results," she said,
calling for elimination of stereotypes, legal changes and
destruction of myths about rape.
"Women need to support each
other and help realize it is not we
who are at fault but inhuman sex
role stereotyping," she said.
In Edmonton, about 75 people
attended a panel discussion in
which speakers called for change
in the restrictive definition of rape
now in the Criminal Code. They
pointed out that under existing law,
a man cannot technically rape his
wife, even if they are separated.
And some speakers suggested
that maximum sentences for rape
should be reduced, to facilitate
convictions, that a woman's
previous sexual background not be
admissable as evidence in rape
cases and that the legal definition
of rape be enlarged to include other
sexual violations.
Other speakers urged women to
learn self defence, but to be wary
of using weapons which could be
turned against them by the
