Protest hits
bank action
A small group of demonstrators
protesting outside the Bank of
Montreal in SUB Monday urged
students to take their money out of
the bank to protest against its
financial support of South Africa.
The five protestors, members of
the Co-operative Christian Campus
Ministry, said loans from
Canadian banks to the South
African government "support that
regime and give it confidence."
The demonstrators handed out
pamphlets to the bank's customers
and ran a slide presentation
describing how North American
banks support the South African
Spokeswoman Kathryn Anderson said people should withdraw
their money from banks which loan
money to the South African
government or corporations.
Anderson said the only national
bank which does not have money in
South Africa is the Bank of Nova
Scotia. Students should put their
money into credit unions or the
Bank of B.C., she said.
The ministry's chairman Colin
Pederson said the purpose of the
demonstration was to have "people
consider the banks' involvement in
South Africa and to take action
against them."
"We are also encouraging people
who take their money out of the
bank to accompany it with a letter," said Anderson. People should
question their banks about their
role in South Africa, she said.
The ministry has withdrawn its
money from the Bank of Commerce.
In a letter to the UBC branch the
ministry's treasurer Loretta
Bogert-O'Brien says, "we believe
that the Bank of Commerce, by
.granting loans to South African
corporations, is prolonging and
supporting the injustice and
subsequent violence.
"We therefore find it no longer
possible to patronize your bank and
feel compelled to encourage others
to follow our example.

Chemistry TAs
miss pay raise
About 50 teaching assistants in
the UBC chemistry department
have still not received a seven per
cent pay increase approved by the
board of governors last spring,
Association of Teaching Assistants
president Don Meakins said
But the failure to implement the
pay increase is due to an "office
mistake/' science dean George
Volkoff said Monday.
"At this stage it's just a straightforward administrative mistake.
As far as I know someone lost a
stack of papers. They'll have a
retroactive pay adjustment,"
Volkoff said.
There was a dispute in the interpretation of the TA pay increase
last month when the chemistry
department included normal
seniority pay increases as part of
the seven per cent, while the ATA,
supported by the administration,
successfully argued that the increase was to be across the board.
Volkoff denied that the pay increase  issue  was  being   fought
again by the science faculty and
chemistry department head
Charles McDowell.
"The decision has been made
and agreed to by Dr. McDowell,"
he said.
Meakins, who became ATA
president today, said the ATA was
convinced the matter had been
resolved until the chemistry TAs
involved got their second pay
cheques without receiving the full
pay increase.
"We had confirmation from the
administration that the whole thing
was going to be resolved. I don't
see how they could misread it (the
increase) twice," he said.
"We're concerned about the
deterioration of relations between
the administration and the
chemistry department," said
The TAs involved, 50 of about
110, are all in second, third and
fourth year TA positions, he said.
First and fifth year TAs did get
the full seven per cent increase,
Meakins said.

UBC women face 'A For a Lay' trap
Two recent cases of sexual harassment of
women at UBC serve as an example of the
kind of problem that sexual exploitation
creates at universities.
In one. case, a female science research
assistant was propositioned by a male employee. After turning him down the woman
was harassed on the job and soon quit.
Another female research assistant at UBC
was propositioned by a male superior and
after refusing to accept his sexual advances,
received continual harassment at work.
Sexual exploitation is a serious concern on
campus, dean of women Margaret Fulton
says. Female students are often
propositioned by male professors and
teaching assistants to give sexual favors in
return for good marks.
Sexual exploitation in universities
"demoralizes the whole educational system,"
says Fulton. The problem of sexism prevents
a woman from being a "mature, intellectual
human being," she says.
When faced with sexist situations, a woman
cannot achieve her fullest potential as a
student, she added.
UBC has no formal disciplinary procedures
to cope with the problem. A female student
with a sexual exploitation complaint should
go straight to the dean of women's office,
Fulton said.
In counselling, women are helped to reenter the professor's or TA's class and still
get a good mark. The Women's Self-Help
Clinic will give support and counsel, she said.
"It takes the exceptional woman to voice
her complaint," says Mercia Stickney of the
Vancouver Status of Women. Unless
guaranteed secrecy, women will not willingly
"We do not have power to deal with those
sort of situations," she said. Students with
these types of problems should contact the
B.C. Human Rights commission, Stickney
Students can go to the Student Health
Service for counselling in sexism complaints,
said staff member Rhoda Ree. Information is
treated confidentially and does not go back to
the administration or faculty.
Ree said she has not encountered any
sexism complaints, but thinks students are
reluctant to come for help.
Females with sexism complaints are more
than welcome to come to the women's office
said UBC women's committee member Sheila
Lidwill. Often women do not seek out the
channels of help that are available, she said.
"Pressure must be put on. People must be
made aware of the problem that professors
proposition students," said Lidwill.

SFU cutbacks reduce services
Canadian University Press
Cutbacks in the Simon Fraser
University operating budget for
1977-78 have resulted in reductions
in staff, programs, research,
maintenance and teaching.
Lack of funds has also stopped
SFU from complying with
Workers' Compensation Board and
fire code regulations.
This information was leaked to
the SFU newspaper The Peak in
two confidential university
documents sent to the Universities
Council of B.C.
One   of   the   documents   said
"cutbacks that were experienced
in the '77-78 budget will cause a
long-term deterioration of the
quality of education. A continuance of such cutbacks as we
have undertaken this year will
further adversely affect the quality
of the teaching programs, result in
a long-term deterioration of our
facilities (and) mean a less-than-
adequate level of services to
teaching and research programs."
The proposals for more money in
the 1978-79 budget claim "over 40
support staff positions have been
eliminated from various academic
and non-academic areas of the
Hie document also points out
that tutorial sizes have increased
12 per cent, "well above desirable
Expansion of the program under
continuing studies was terminated,
provisions for new faculties were
substantially reduced, and support
staff and operating funds for
emergent and ongoing academic
programs were sharply cut.
The document also said "there
was no provision for inflation and
this has had a significant effect on
the teaching material area." The
average cost of teaching materials
in several areas has increased
nearly 60 per cent in two years.
The university has asked for a
"small-growth budget" of 34 per
cent over last year. However, this
was chopped by the UCBC and
again by the ministry of education
resulting in a 25 per cent tuition
increase and cutbacks.
"In addition we have eliminated
a substantial number of telephone
outlets, curtailed the use of paper
supplies, reduced the frequency

Women in China 'still lack equality'
Women in China have
progressed more rapidly than
North American women in gaining
equality in legal rights and wage
earning but they still do not have
total equality, an expert on China
said Monday.
Patricia Tsurumi, speaking in
the first of a series of lectures and
presentations for the Chinese
Festival '77, defended China's
male leaders for placing economic
development before women's
"You cannot blame these men.
In a poor country economic de
velopment is a necessary priority,
she said.
"Equality of the sexes takes
second place in Chinese society
and inequality has a far heavier
history there than it has here."
Tsurumi, a University of Victoria professor, said that the most
important problem for Chinese
women in the People's Republic is
the ancient family system that is
still very strong today.
"Chinese parents are not supposed to say that they prefer to
educate the boys.
"But the economic reality is that
U of M students defy

her husband's village and her
value as a skilled worker is lost, so

education because they will

aware of women's political issues
Tsurumi said, but they have a
difficult time taking part in them.
When it comes time to choose a
cadre (Communist party
organizer) the community doesn't
want to choose someone who will
be moving away when they get
"Young men in China are
beginning to talk about housework
being obligatory for men while the
older men are still trying to justify
the fact that there are few women
cadres by claiming that women are
necessary in the home," she said.
"In modern China skilled
workers are valued and women are
lacking skills except at wheat
grinding and thread making. These
jobs are still not recognized as
having value.
"The People's Republic of China
encourages women to have skills
by providing them with strong role
models," Tsurumi said.
"They praise the women's
contribution to such major enterprises as the Red Canal. When
you take a closer look at this you'll
discover that only eight per cent of
the actual workers on the canal
were women."
"It is important for all Chinese
women born either here or in China
to realize the extent of the influence of the mentality of Chinese
women's traditional role and its
effect on their lives," she said.

The proposal added "finally with
great regret we have been forced
to reduce our proposed salary for
faculty and non-union staff."

was unable to comply with the fire
code and WCB regulations because
of last year's budget shortfall.

Book thief
gets jailed
for month
Lawyers for a former UBC
student convicted and sentenced
for stealing $4,000 worth of books
from UBC libraries filed an appeal
Monday in the B.C. court of appeals.
Brian Dobson, 29, was sentenced
Friday to 30 days in jail, to be
served on weekends, and fined
$1,000 for stealing 260 books during
a three-year period.
Judge Jack McGivern said in
Vancouver provincial court that
although Dobson is not likely to
commit a similar crime again, his
punishment might deter others
who attempt such thefts.
Defence lawyer Terence La
Liberte said Dobson had intended
to return the books but was
arrested before he could do so.
But McGivern rejected this
argument, saying, "if 15,000 or
20,000 others took that position, the
library would be empty."
Prosecutor Hugh McCallum said
an increase in book thefts at UBC
libraries has forced UBC to install
special security devices.
The thefts committed by Dobson
were obviously premeditated, he
said, because Dobson went to the
trouble of doctoring his library
card to get books checked out.
Dobson was charged in August,
1976 after RCMP searched his
room and found the. books. The
books were stolen between 1972 and
1975 when Dobson was a part-time
and full-time architecture student.
University head librarian Basil
Stuart-Stubbs said he hopes
Dobson's sentencing will make
people think twice before they steal
books from the library.
"The message I would like
people to get from this is that this is
a serious crime."
He said many people steal books
from the library without contemplating the effects on fellow
students, who will not be able to
use the books.
"People think 'I'm just taking
from a big institution so what the
hell.' "
Stuart-Stubbs said the library
sustains large losses every year
because of thefts.

Fight Racism
You probably have a stake in South Africa, an outlaw
among nations which treats its black majority little better
than Canadians treat coyotes.
Anyone who has their money in a major Canadian
chartered bank (with the exception of the Bank of Nova
Scotia and the Bank of B.C.) is unconsciously aiding the
racist South Africa dictatorship by contributing to banks
which place their money in South Africa.
The Co-operative Christian Campus Ministry has launched
protests against the banks' policies in the wake of South
Africa's brutal crackdown on the few freedoms enjoyed by
blacks, including limited press freedom. By making us aware
of the banks' collusion with racists, this group is giving us an
opportunity to help advance the cause of freedom.
Canada's banks, by investing money in South Africa and
other dictatorships which offer cheap labor, are also
contributing to Canada's woes by moving money outside the
country when it is needed here. But the banks have never
cared for anything beyond their profits, and the federal
government steps aside compliantly.
This is our chance to help millions of people in South
Africa. By putting money in smaller banks or credit unions,
we can give our money back to ourselves.

The position of UBC chancellor is open, and thus far there
is only one contestant, J. V. Clyne, the man who ran
MacMillian Bloedel, the single most important corporation in
B.C., for several years, and recently as 18 months ago
personally ordered a top-level shuffle at Mac-Bio.
To run, you have to be a graduate. Twelve years ago grad
student Randy Enomoto ran for the largely ceremonial
position, which is nevertheless important by virtue of the
chancellor's vote on the board of governors.
•If the Alumni Association, which nominated Clyne, had in
mind the university's bargaining position with the Socred
government, they could have made few better choices.
But it seems in somewhat bad taste to install the man who
personifies swashbuckling capitalism into a post which to
many symbolizes UBC. The choice ignores a great proportion
of the population, who conveniently are not represented in
great numbers on Ca.npus.
Grads who come from this group have a great opportunity

Gage, Vanier offended by Totem
We are deeply offended by the
letters we received from Cam
MacKay, president of the Totem
Park residence association, informing us that Gage and Vanier
residence cards will no longer be
accepted at Totem functions involving liquor.
To add insult to injury, MacKay
goes on to say that he hopes we will
continue to honor Totem Park
residence cards at our functions.
I am writing in regard to various
articles and letters (notably those
of "Jake the Rake") which
frequently appear in your paper.
Many of the author's statements
overstep the bounds of good taste
and common courtesy. I have read
personal slurs I thought we'd left
behind in the schoolyard. It is
understandable, if regrettable,
that people can't keep their terrors
and viciousness out of legitimate
criticisms, but it is inexcusable
that an editor would allow slander
and crudity past his desk.
The Ubyssey doesn't rely on
salesfor its support; why then does
it rely on sensationalism to provide
the main body of interest for its
readers? I enjoy The Ubyssey, and
I think student newspapers can be
exciting forums for student
opinions and concerns, but standards can never be too high!
Let's have responsible editing of
Ubyssey content now! I'm tired of
reading meanness and gutter-
sniping ... I can get that off any
bathroom wall.

Cam's reasoning for the above
edict stems from the temporary
loss of Totem's liquor licence due
to the animal-like behavior, which
he attributes to the Gage and
Vanier residents, at Totem's
Bavarian Blitz.
This statement is clearly
ridiculous when one looks at the
good times and clean fun had at
Vanier's and Gage's trouble-free
social functions. The Totem Park
executive should look to themselves before they start blaming
their problems on our residences.
We are not saying that there
were no Gage or Vanier residents
involved at the Totem fiasco
earlier this month. We are trying to
point out that if the Totem Park
residence association provided
more adequate supervision and
security staff at this functions,
they would not have to go through
the rigmarole of blaming their
staffing inadequacies on Gage and

Traffic office hurts prof
I cannot sign this as I don't expect to get any backing trum my
department head in my fight against the traffic office.
You wrote anarticle about the traffic office earlier this term, well,
keep it up! I have to travel around the campus quite a bit to give my
own classes, and though I have a service vehicle permit, I'm constantly getting tickets and worse.
My main point is this. The traffic office is very effectively cutting
down the amount of work I can do for my students. There seem to be a
number of those cops who just like to harass people.
Have you considered the following:
• There is only parking space for about 30 per cent of those with
parking stickers;
t Is the traffic office's job to help people park? No way, it seems;
• Do you know how much gas we waste in these days of an energy
crisis following all these routings which take miles to get from A to B?
• Have you noticed the flurry of activity which has resulted from
your article? People are really being persecuted.
Here are two suggestions to counterattack these fascist activities:
• Have a series of days of "drive-ins" where everyone who has a
sticker drives in and parks all over campus.
• Get The Ubyssey to institute a series of "tear up ticket weeks."
Every student and faculty member who has a cent's worth of guts
tears up every parking ticket he sees or she sees. You could even have
an anonymous prize for the person who brings in the most tickets.
But keep up your articles and good luck.

Grad students need money
I would like to straighten out a

occurred as a result of last
Friday's article on problems the
Graduate Students' Association
has had in dealing with the Alma

In contrast to what the article
leads one to believe, I have complete confidence in the GSA
executive in general, and in its

While I am disappointed that the
GSA seems to have abandoned its
fight to get adequate funding from
the AMS, I realize the GSA has
done everything one can
reasonably expect.
During the summer the GSA
went through a maze of AMS
bureaucracy that the administration would be proud to
have, and in the end the AMS
treated its graduate students like

Dreams for ticketed drivers
Nothing more typifies the stone-age
mentality of this university's administration
than the Campus Cowboys.
These villains, on their trusty metal

Hedstrom delays cutback fight
Recent developments have finally placed
the issue of how to fight the education cutbacks on the student representative
assembly agenda, and the SRA will make its
decision on Wednesday.
Last week the gloves came off inside the
cutbacks committee as the debate around
how students should oppose the present
Socred education policies escalated into an
open fight.
One-half of the argument advocates that
students should work with the administration and try to reach some compromise on the problem. These members,
most vocally led by the secretary/treasurer
of the SRA, Arnold Hedstrom, point to the
administration as a possible ally and claim
that it is in the administration's own interests to get the UBC budget increased.
They propose that students work with the
administration to try and talk the Socreds
out of some of their $100 million surplus.,
However, the board of governors, the ruling
body of UBC, is made up of a majority of
•government appointees and in order to keep
their posh jobs, these people must do what
the Socreds tell them.
On the other hand, students have only two
seats on the 15-person board and this quite
clearly shows that the UBC administration
is run by the Socreds.
The more militant members of the cutbacks committee advocate that only an
active, visible fight against the cutbacks can
hope to succeed. These individuals propose
that students must rely on their own numbers and actively voice their disapproval if
student interests are to be backed by any
real bargaining power.
Thecommittee has already voted to adopt
the perspective of trying to picket the BoG,
to invite administration president Doug
Kenny and education minister Pat McGeer
to debate the cutbacks issue at an open
meeting and leaflet ting and postering the .
campus in order to inform students about
the cutbacks issue and thus draw them to
these events. However, these attempts to
start a cutbacks fight have so far been
defeated by Hedstrom's conscious obstruction.
The SRA allocated $200 to the cutbacks
committee and the committee voted to use
some of this money to print an informational
leaflet for distribution on campus. Because
of a constitutional legality, the secretary -
treasurer must sign before the committee
can spend the money.
This he has flatly refused to do in spite of
the fact that the SRA released the money to
the committee, not Hedstrom. While voting
for the motion which proposed the leaflet,
Grant Klgaard is a member of the UBC
Young Socialists. Perspectives is open to all
members of the UBC community. All
submissions should include the writer's full
name and occupation on campus.
when it came time to sign the cheque he
would not do so, claiming that he wouldn't
waste the students' money. If he thought it
was a waste of money why has he been
voting for the leaflet in previous meetings?
In spite of this, it would be a mistake to
paint Hedstrom as the villain of the piece
because his actions are only a reflection of
thereal problem, which is the attitude of the
SRA representatives to the cutbacks issue.
An attitude which has translated itself into
complete inaction by the SRA on the cutbacks issue.
The minutes of the cutbacks committee
meeting will come before the SRA on
Wednesday and in those minutes will be a
proposal to print the leaflet in question,
which will require a two-thirds majority in
order to pass. This is when students will find
out just what their elected reps are willing to
do about the cutbacks issue.
If the motion fails, the prospects for the
committee are grim as it will probably
spendthe rest of the year tied up in the knots
of the SRA purse strings.
This is a crucial crossroads for the cutbacks committee and students who want to
see their elected reps at work should attend
the SRA meeting on Wednesday and the
cutbacks committee meeting on Thursday
at noon. All students have the right to speak
at both meetings and if students are concerned about the cutbacks issue they should
come and express their opinions.
Gordon Craig of the University of Edinburgh is well known for his contribution to the history and
evolution of scientific thought in the earth sciences. In the formative years of the earth sciences,
Scotland was a centre of creativity. The recent discovery of the lost diagrams of James Hutton
(1726-1797) and their publication by Professor Craig and others must be regarded as a major
achievement in documenting the history of science.

Grid 'Birds luck
into playoff spot
TACOMA — The UBC Thunderbirds were unlucky on the playing
field Saturday, losing an exhibition
game because of a blocked convert, but they got lucky because of
a last-minute field goal in Winnipeg, and backed into the Canada
West playoffs.
The 'Birds showed favorably in
what was billed a "Comparison
Bowl" against the University of
Puget Sound Loggers in Tacoma,
Wash., losing 21-20 to the Loggers,
who beat UBC's arch-rival Simon
Fraser Clansmen 44-12 Oct. 15 at
Empire Stadium.
In Winnipeg Saturday, the
University of Manitoba Bisons
defeated the University of Alberta
Golden Bears 22-21, knocking
Alberta out of the playoffs.
The 'Birds ended the season with
a 4-3-1 record, the same as
Alberta's, but UBC gets the nod on
the basis of a better points average
in games between the two teams.
The University of Calgary
Dinosaurs host the 'Birds in the
Western Intercollegiate Football
League playoff game Saturday.
Showing the Hallowe'en spirit,
the 'Bircfe gave a big scare to 65
Loggers, members of the National
Association of Intercollegiate
Athletics. UBC nearly beat UPS at
their own game, considering that
theyplayedbyU.S. rules, on a U.S.
field with U.S. officials.
The 'Birds proved not only that
they are in the same league as the
Loggers, but more importantly,
that they are definitely competitive with cross-town SFU.
Dan Smith dazzled Saturday's
capacity crowd of 4,000, throwing
41 times for 20 completions and 249
yards, while UPS nr aged only 90
yards through the air. UBC also
amassed 20 first downs to only 13
for UPS. But statistics are for
losers, and UBC did lose, if ever so
UPS marched downfield on their
first possession, scoring on a one-
yard plunge by running back Wyatt
Baker at 2:45 of the first quarter.
A UBC fumble was turned into
another Logger touchdown as UPS
quarterback Ivy Iverson scampered in from the eight-yard line at
10:24 of quarter one, making the
score 14-0.
UBC struck back with an 85-yard
bomb to Evan Jones for an apparent touchdown only to have it
called back for holding, a penalty
which cost the 'Birds 22 yards for
some reason. UBC found pay dirt
again, this time keeping the points,
on a 45-yard pass play from Dan
Smith to Paul Pearson with only
seconds left in the first quarter.
The 'Birds came back to tie the
score at 10:01 of the second quarter
when Smith teamed up with
Pearson again for 12 yards and a
UBC took the lead as Pearson
hauled in his third touchdown pass
of the day, an 18-yarder, at 8:09 of
the third quarter. But Metz' convert was blocked, the point which
later proved the difference.
The Loggers regained the lead in
the fourth quarter when quarterback Iverson found fullback
Casey Sander alone in the end
zone. The successful convert put
UPS in front 21-20.
The 'Birds still came close. After
recovering a Logger fumble with
two minutes left, the UBC offence
drove to the UPS 28, but gambled
and lost at fourth down and one,
and UPS ran out the clock.
When asked how he would rate
UBC as compared with SFU,
Logger head coach Paul Wallrof
said: "UBC is a class football team
and definitely in the same league
as Simon Fraser."
The winner of Saturday's game
with Calgary at McMahon Stadium
will represent the West in the four-
team Canada in College Bowl in
Toronto Nov. 18.
UBC lost 31-3 in the Canadian
semi-finals last year to the

Puck team gives Alumni the bird
It was the UBC Thunderbirds
versus the UBC "Pigeons" Friday
night at the Winter Sports Centre.
Pigeons don't often trash Thunderbirds, and the trend was continued
in the third annual Alumni game as
the Varsity 'Birds beat the Alumni
'Birds 8-2.
The first period was very close,
with UBC coming away with a 1-0
lead ona goal by Peter Moyls. But
the second period was so onesided
that most of the play was in the
Alumni zone.
UBC head coach Bert Halliwell
attributed the sag in the alumni
team to their lack of conditioning.
"They have a lot of excellent
players, but some of them have
only been training for a couple of
weeks, while we've been at it every

Whyte kicks UBC to rugby win
David Whyte kicked 11 points on
three penalty goals and a convert
to pace the Thunderbird rugby
team to a 15-13 win over the Ex-
Brits Saturday at Thunderbird
The Ex-Brits came from behind
to take the lead three times before
Whyfe's final penalty kick late in
the game gave UBC the win.
The game was slowmoving from
the start, with the flow of play
disrupted more often by whistles
than by tackles or kicks to touch.
For most of the first half the 'Birds
were able to keep the ball between
midfidd and the Ex-Brits' 22-
metres line.
UBC's inability to establish a
consistent running attack kept the
'Birds from pressing dangerously,
but they took an early lead on
Whyte's first penalty kick, from 40
For their part, the Ex-Brits were
content to have their backs play
flat and try, with a fair degree of
success, to break up the 'Birds'
speedy running game with close,
spirited tackles. The Ex-Brits
main offensive tactic consisted of
trying to run a centre reverse up
the middle, which met indifferent
success as the 'Bird pack clogged
up the middle.
However, the centre reverse
against UBC's centres late in the
opening half proved successful
when used off a line just inside the
Thunderbirds' 22-meter line. The
result was an overlap on the right
side, through which Ian McLean
ran to score the first try of the
game and give the Brits the lead.
Dale Turkington got the score
back for UBC a few minutes later,
capitalizing on an Ex-Brit misplay
of a line out. With the convert the
'Birds led 9-4 at the half.
Whyte started the second half by
giving the 'Birds a shortlived 12-7
lead on his second penalty goal.
But a penalty goal by Perrek
Vettese, McLean's second try and
Doug Hayes' convert put the Ex-
Brits into the lead 13-12, setting the
scene for Whyte's final kick.
"We never really got off the
ground as a team, although there
were several individual efforts that
saved the game for us," said UBC
coach   Donn   Spence.
UBC's problems up front were
compounded late in the second half

The win solidified the 'Birds'
position in the uncertain race for

and four points, UBC is in no worse
than fourth place.
It is clear the Capilanos are at
least in second spot after their 12-6
win over the Vancouver Rowing
dub on Saturday. The Caps now
have a 3-1-1 record for .seven points
and the Rowing Club has six points,
with three wins in five outings.
The UBC Old Boys have five
points with two wins and a tie in
four games. They downed the
winless Trojans 54-0 Saturday.
The Ex-Brits, after splitting
their four games, sit with the
'Birds with four points.
The confusion stems from the
Meralomas-Kats match. The
'Lomas went into the game tied for
first place with three wins in four
games, while the Kats were
winless. However, with the 'Lomas
in front late in the game a brawl
broke out and referee Skip McCarthy walked off the field.
The result of the game will not be
known until after Wednesday's
meeting of the disciplinary committee.
Notwithstanding the decisions of
the discipline committee, UBC's
next game will be crucial as they
are slated to meet the 'Lomas

Soccer 'Birds lose title,
sunk by Golden Bears
The UBC soccer 'Birds failed to
retain their title at the Canada
West University Athletic
Association championships in
Victoria over the weekend after
being dumped by the University of
Alberta 4-0.
The 'Birds finished the round-
robin tourney with a 1-1-1 record
after beating the University of

University of Victoria Vikings 1-1
in their first game Oct. 20.
Victoria defeated both Alberta
and Saskatchewan to win the
tournament and will represent

According to Johnson, the 'Birds
didn't play like defending champions.
"We just didn't play the kind of
game we're capable of," said
coach Joe Johnson. "The forwards
weren't putting the ball in the net
and the defence was generally
The 'Birds are now eliminated
from intercollegiate play this
Johnson criticized the way the
Western champion is chosen.
"All the coaches agreed that a
one-shot tournament was a poor
way to come up with a champion,"
he said.
He said the coaches of the four
Western teams met Sunday to
decide on a new way of deter
mining a Western champion.
The new proposal calls for a six-
team league, incorporating the
four current clubs and adding sides
from the Universities of Calgary
and Lethbridge. There would be a
10-game schedule, the top team
becoming the Western champ.
Johnson will now turn his full
attention to the remainder of the
B.C. Senior Soccer League season,
hoping to pull the 'Birds out of the
First Division cellar.

Women facing problems
From page 1
No one has come forward to the
women's office with a complaint of
being propositioned this year, she
The real problem is that sexual
exploitation cannot be proven, said
ombudsperson Pam Sherwood.
"It's really a touchy thing to
handle. Actually all I can dp is call
the prof," she said.
"I don't usually see a lot of
people who say their prof is coming
on to them." Only two cases have
been reported so far this year, she
But female students have approached Sherwood, worried why
professors were being so friendly
and familiar with them.
"Like every place else, attitudes
towards people on campus are not
what they should be," Sherwood
The major concern is that
professors are not relating to
women as people. One woman
living in residence had a professor
continually phone her, often in the
middle of the night. After approaching him with a complaint,
the telephoning stopped, Sherwood
Women must take an assertive
stand and in most cases "conversation cools off the pressure,"
she said.
But professors aren't immune to
what the rest of society is doing,
Sherwood added.
"Our society is schizophrenic in
that it forces sex games and
stereotype roles on us and at the
same time keeps us from being
mature," Fulton says.
Female students are forced to
solve sexism predicaments on
their own, facing constant denials
that such problems exist. And if a

woman does make an issue of it, a
male professor can always fail her,
Fulton says.
But male professors have also
been the victims of propositions by
female students, said Sherwood. A
male student approached by a
female professor would consider it
"a feather in his cap," Sherwood
A woman who propositions a
male professor and is reported
"could be expelled very easily,"
Fulton says. Women should be
aware of their obligation to be
ethical in student behavior pattern,
she added.

respected, could help improve the
university's   tarnished   public
image, Warren said.
Jim Denholme, chairman of the
association's nominating committee, said the university needs a
vocal public spokesman to represent it in a time of budget cutbacks
and attacks on the integrity of
certain faculty members.
"We felt very strongly we needed
someone people could respect and
would listen to," Denholme said.
Moe Sihota, student board of
governors member, said Clyne's
election would worsen an already
serious imbalance on the board in
favor of businessmen and
The university chancellor has a
seat on the board, the senate and
fulfills various ceremonial functions.
"There should be a greater
cross-section of members of the
community," Sihota said.
But Denholme said Clyne's
business background would be an
asset to the board, whose main
task is to deal with the university
budget and financial matters.
He said the addition of student
representatives to the board when
the Universities Act was implemented in 1974 means the board
is balanced away from business.
Warren said another reason for
Clyne's nomination is his extensive
experience with UBC and
university governance.
Between 1951 and 1960 Clyne
served three terms as a member of
the university senate. Clyne
graduated from UBC in 1923.
