Array Radiation leak found
By JULIE WHEELWRIGHT
For the past several months abnormally-high levels of
radiation have been leaking undetected into UBC's Math annex and poisoning its residents.
In an accidental discovery Monday, it was found that a
basement room in the building has been used as a storage
dump for radioactive material for the past 12 years.
Forgotten waste dump
uncovered in Math annex
"I've had my death hanging over
that room the whole time I've been
there," said professor Jim Carrell
after the discovery. His office is
located directly above the dump.
Professor Dale Rolfsen uncovered the fact last Friday when he
became, curious about what was in
the basement of the annex.
He noticed a sign reading: "Caution Radiation Hazard" on the
door of a small basement room and
on Monday phoned UBC's radiation protection officer Bill Raychuk
to investigate.
With a borrowed geiger counter,
Rolfsen then entered Carrell's office directly above the radioactive
area and found it had 14 times the
normal level of radiation.
"I'm outraged that people have
unwittingly been exposed to fairly
high levels of radiation. It's almost
criminal when people are exposed
to radiation without their consent,"
he said.
Raychuk discovered that the
material emitting the high levels of
radiation was a substance known as
sodium-22. He found the material
in an open cardboard box sitting on
top of an empty oil barrel in the
basement room, about two feet
from the ceiling.
"It is on the oddest of occasions,
and you caught me, that we have
sodium-22," he said.
Raychuk said he systematically
monitors every purchase of radioactive material at UBC, but says it is
impossible to keep track of all
readings.
Carrell said: "The only thing that
I was thinking of was how much of
that stuff does he (Raychuck) have
in his basement. I'm afraid he's not
been    doing    his   job    to    my
detriment," said Carrell.
Raychuck then lifted the radioactive material from the oil barrel and
put it on the floor. Next, he went up
to Carrell's office to measure
the level of radioactivity in his
room. It had dropped.
Raychuk pointed out that if the
sodium   had   been   placed   under

Buckley tells West to buck OPEC
Oil producing countries should be forced
to sell oil to the West at a fixed price, noted
American conservative William F. Buckley
Jr. said Monday at UBC.
Buckley told 800 people in SUB ballroom
that the U.S. should take the lead in creating
the fixed price.
He proposed an ultimatum insisting on a
stable oil price and supply for 10 years be
issued to the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries. The western countries
should issue an interest-free bond redeemable
in the year 2000 in return for the oil price
freeze, Buckley said.
The value of the bond would be determined by the difference in current oil prices and
the price projected for 2000, he added.
Buckley said the plan would allow western
countries to develop oil self-sufficiency or
find alternative sources of energy.
He said OPEC does not allow the free
market to operate effectively because "a free
market is not a cartel."
All attempts by American companies
or countries trading with the U.S. to establish
monopolies or cartels should be watched
carefully and those within U.S. jurisdiction
should be prosecuted, Buckley said.
"Watch them (the companies) like a hawk,
and if you catch them conspiring against free
trade, send them to jail. That goes for labor
unions, too."
And he says companies are not as
villainous as they have been painted, which
the public is beginning to realize.
Humanitarian cliches about multi-national
corporations profiting from the misery of the
general public are no longer accepted and
"should be outlawed," he said. All business

BUCKLEY . . . right makes might
William F. Buckley's words sure
weren't worth the $4,000 he charged for his UBC appearance Monday, say some student leaders.
Neither were the overlooked invitations and interviews, wasted
time and disorganization which
resulted during his visit, they say.
"AMS members should be given
first priority on tickets," said
Valgeet Johl, Alma Mater Society
external affairs officer. "The principle behind this whole thing is
wrong."
Johl said she was angry the AMS
allowed the public to buy tickets to
Buckley's one-time appearance
because it prevented many students
from entering.
Buckley's visit was overpriced
because he spent almost one-and
a-half hours not talking to students,
yet attended an exclusive banquet at
the faculty club with six people,
charged Johl.
"If he only had a half-hour, the
least they (organizers) could have

Sect looks
to sex for
new recruits
By VERNE McDONALD
After two years of How's Your
Love Life? the Campus Crusade for
Christ's annual campaign for Jesus
is moving into high gear with a lecture series entitled Dynamic Sex.
But many Christians on campus
take exception to the campus
crusade's approach to getting converts.
George Hermanson, chaplain of
the co-operative campus ministry,
termed the campaign Monday as
"misleading, unless they're trying
to be scatological." But he said he
did not think it was the campus
crusade's intention to be
scatological.
Pointing out he could not make
definite judgments on the lectures
until he had heard them, Herman-
son expressed doubt the presentation
would fairly treat the question of
sexuality.
"Sexuality is an important quest
for all of us," he said. "I don't
think it can be handled adequately
in a multi-media presentation or a
large group. There are too many
complex questions involved to be
handled that way.
"Theologically, one cannot make
the statement that one's orthodoxy

done is give the paper (The,
Ubyssey) an interview," she said.
"I think students would be interested in reading that sort of thing
in the paper."
Buckley said he did not have time
for an interview, but after his one-
hour appearance in SUB ballroom
spent more than a half-hour
socializing with alumni association
president Dale Alexander and five
student politicians.
Johl said that while planning the
banquet, organizers made no attempt to invite half the AMS student politicians, journalists or other
interested campus members. They
instead opted for university
notables who wanted to "pat
themselves on the back," she said.
AMS   president   Brian   Short,
Bruce Armstrong, board of governors student representative and
AMS programs committee
members Susan Hughes were some
of the students present.
Glenn Wong, the other student
board member, was not invited to
the reception. He said he found it
unbelievable that Buckley's speech
cost more than the total budget of
some 1979-80 AMS committees.

UCBC rejoices at enrolment jump
By RORY MUNRO
Unexpected rises in enrolment at
two of B.C.'s universities has led to
a cry of "hallelujah" from Dr. Bill
Gibson, chairman of the Universities Council of B.C.
"I just say hallelujah. I'm
delighted to see enrolment up," he
said. "We need more participation
of up-country people instead of
coastal people."
There's a lot of part-time and
older students but what we want to
encourage is the 18-24 year old
bracket."
The UCBC, which allots funding
to B.C.'s three universities, had
predicted a decline in enrolment at
B.C.'s universities, but according to
Gibson they were looking at the national picture.
Gibson said the increase in enrolment had not been accounted for in
the province's 1979-80 education
budget.
"It just happened," he said. "All
we can do is recommend for the
1980-81 budget."
UBC's assistant registrar J. Pier-
cy said as of Friday there were
23,000 students enrolled at UBC.
Refuseniks
look for aid
from West
Refuseniks need not give up
hope.
"Refuseniks" are people who
have applied to leave the Soviet
Union and been refused, Jewish
rights activist Sharon Disend said
Monday. They are less likely to be
harrassed by the KGB, and more
likely to be granted permission to
emigrate if they have Western contacts, she said.
When people apply to leave the
country their mail is stopped, their
telephone is taken out, and they
may lose their jobs, Disend said.
Letters from North American sympathizers make life easier for them
and might actually help them to
emigrate, she added.
" 'Without North American
Jewry, the KGB would drown us
like rats,' " Disend quoted an
unknown source as saying.
She added the KGB is less likely
to harrass Soviet Jews with Western
contacts due to a fear of international incidents.
The Soviet Union also recognizes
the re-unification of families, she
said, and having Israeli relatives is
another factor in obtaining a
refusenik's release.
Names of refuseniks are obtained
through the Student Struggle for
Soviet Jewry and the Canadian
Committee for Soviet Jewry, said
Disend. She added that these
organizations obtain names by going to the Soviet Union as tourists
and asking Jews if they require
help.
Letters to the Soviet Jews are sent
registered with return receipts to
help ensure delivery, because otherwise most letters are intercepted by
the Soviet government, she'said.
Most refuseniks are well-
educated, and can speak and write
English, she said, so there is rarely
any difficulty in communicating.
Other efforts to obtain the
freedom of Russian Jews include
letters to top Soviet government officials as well as petitions, said Disend.
Ten thousand Russian Jews have
been granted permission to leave
the. country to date, she said.
Disend will speak on the subject
of helping Soviet Jews at Hillel
House at noon today.
This represents a three per cent increase over last year.
Final figures will not be known
until December. Piercy said it
would be safe to say enrolment will
reach the 24,000 figure.
Enrolment at the University of
Victoria has risen five per cent and
the administration has been
reported as being "pleasantly surprised."
Graduate studies at UVic made
up 33 per cent of the total increase
in enrolment. Attendance there
now totals 7,101 full and part-time
students.
Although expected to rise, enrol
ment at Simon Fraser University is
down one per cent.
An SFU spokesman said the
strike of Association of College and
University Employees last spring
might have caused the decrease.
FAMILIES READ THE UBYSSEY TOO. Adult seems engrossed in Friday's issue of venerable campus institution. But young woman seems
more intent on unusual one-eyed monster, alias the unknown
photographer. Teddy bear refused to comment on either newspaper or
photographer, but expressed concern over rising cost of university education and difficulties in obtaining student loans. Bear will run for position as
student board of governors representative next year.

Hot apple turnovers
too hot to handle
TUCSON (ZNS) — When
students in the Tucson unified
school district in Arizona got hot
apple turnovers in their cafeteria
they didn't realize how hot they
really were.
It seems the foodstuffs in their
central kitchen had been contaminated by tritium radiation
from an area landfill.
The school district was ordered
recently to immediately bury about
$316,000 worth of food stored in
the kitchen. The kitchen has been
closed since June, when it was
discovered that radioactive Tritium,
emitted from the nearby American
Atomic Corporation plant, had
contaminated the food.
The plant is still emitting tritium
and will be closed shortly.

TORONTO (CUP) — When professor J. B. Gilmore looks for a
glimmer of understanding in the
eyes of his psychology 100 class he
has a big job to undertake.
That's because there are 1,400
eyes on him. The University of
Toronto, in an attempt to cope With
insufficient funding at the university, has put about 700 students in
Gilmore's Thursday morning class.
U of T president James Ham is
worried that huge classes at the
university could become the rule
rather than the exception if there is
continued underfunding of the
university.
"What must worry us is to what
extent classes like this become common experience," said Ham. "It's
intolerable that a person's university experience be contaminated by
classes that large."
Peter Gal way, U of T student
commissioner, said the size of the
class is frustrating and ridiculous
but there is little hope of changing
the situation now.
Student union executive assistant
Harvey Cooper said the class
will have a "circus environment"
and that such classes make a "farce
of education."
Gilmore says no difficulties are
expected in communicating with the
class. Page 4

Jackpot!
There's a new deadly game at UBC. It's called Radioactive
Riches.
'Winners' who hit the jackpot can take the loot, and risk losing
their health, peace of mind and power over their own lives. It's a
risky business, and there's a high price to pay, but some on campus thought it was worth it.
The ones that knew about the game, that is.
A UBC president's committee decided to launch the game 12
years ago to make a basement room in a major student building,
the Math annex, a way-station for radioactive material. Without
giving any public notice, this select group chose to potentially endanger the lives of scores of students in the years to come through
exposure to radiation.
The map was plotted, the steps were drawn, but none of the
players had been informed of the game plan.
Until five days ago, it looked as if the plot would continue
without a snag. But without directives, maps or coded orders, a
campus member last Friday stumbled onto the biggest secret this
university has unleashed in a decade. Math professor Dale Rolfsen,
by sheer accident, became the first initiate in the game's instructions.
He discovered highly-radioactive material on campus.
The sign "Caution Radiation Hazard" was the first clue. Then, it
was discovered that a supply of radioactive sodium-22, which immediately registered 14 times the normal level of radiation, lay uncovered only two feet below a professor's office.
The office inhabitant, Jim Carrell, became the innocent, endangered second player.
He made no offers to play the game. He didn't know its rules or
its existence. But now, he has become woven into a web of ever-
present danger with which he previously had no involvement.
The UBC administration, in this case, are the potential killers.
We have paid severely for the strategic mistakes of those 12 years
ago. Our current radiation protection officer, Bill Raychuk, says he
systematically monitors every bit of radioactive material on this
campus, but admits the chance to screw up exists. "You caught
me," he said.  This time.
But human life and health at UBC are far more serious implications than an innocent game of hide-and-go-seek.
The implications of this discovery are horrendous and should
leave all of us with severe doubts in the faith and technological
capabilities of our administration. As the math professors
themselves lament, we have been rendered powerless to control
the situation. A severely-damaging secret was hidden from us for
12 years and only now has been unearthed. As Carrell says, who's
to say what's stored under Kenny's buildings?
Don't laugh if you see students with Geiger counters.
You too, could hit the jackpot.

Buckley bash unfair
Ah, irony is wonderful. It takes a world-
renowned visiting conservative and $4,000 to
reveal UBC's ineptitude, petty politics, and
favoritism.
We could have done it for two cents.
William F. Buckley brandished his big name in
economics and bulldozed his way into our SUB
ballroom to tell folks what he thinks of the Arabs.
After he told us that free enterprise is the only
answer and the West must unite and fight
against those greedy OPEC countries, he retired
to the faculty club to wine, dine, chat and frat
with the elite.
Each sumptuous hour cost us $1,600.
Instead of talking to students at length with a
question-and-answer period, or agreeing in-
depth  interviews,   Buckley  sealed  himself  off
from the public to rub elbows with token student leaders.
Many students didn't even hear Buckley's
words of wisdom because members of the public
had already bought tickets before them. Almost
all students were barred by AMS organizers from
the private banquet because they just weren't up
to par for a U.S. notable's standards.
Equal time for equal pay, right?
Forget it.
The AMS has allotted $9,000 this year for
guest speakers and Glenn Wong admits they
went overboard in costs for Buckley. But they'll
make up for it, he says, with "cheaper" speakers
next time.
We all deserve more than bit parts in Buckley's
visit. It's up to us to decide who's the somebody
and nobody.
Letters
One for all, and all for one (who're you trying to kid?)
The editorial in Friday's Ubyssey
was an emotional and rather naive
attack on the proposed UBC
research park. The whole discussion
was based on the misconception,
given in the writer's own words,
that: "After all, that's what the
university is all about — to serve the
students, right?"
Wrong — though many of the attitudes prevalent amongst UBC
students often indicate a wish that
this were true.
This university, and all institutions like it, was conceived and built
not to serve the voracious demands
of a few self-serving students, but
to improve the lot of all people by
promoting the academic advancement of out society. To fulfil this
ambitious goal the university has to
undertake several tasks; it must
pursue new knowledge to better our
understanding, and our ability to
cope with ourselves and our environment; it must disseminate the
knowledge accumulated so that all
people may benefit.
It is with the execution of the second task that people become
students at this institution. Those
few who are curious, ambitious and
occasionally hard-working enough
are conceded the privilege of
achieving their right to a higher
education in such a grand manner
by the people of this society. Both
tasks supplement each other. The
presence of students at the university provides new minds with different ideas, and, unfortunately, a
much-needed source of inexpensive
talent for the underfunded research
progams. The research programs in
return provide facilities and a
stimulating atmosphere for the
students to work in.
Most people would agree with the
idea that research is necessary to the
learning environment, yet with any
mention of a research park to be
built within the reach of the university, panic strikes. Why? The Friday editorial doted upon such
obscenities as "profit", "high
technology ", ' 'pharmaceuticals'',
and "foresty" — the catch words
of unthinking socialist environmentalist lobbyists, thrown out to chill
the populace with the supposed
cruel opportunism of the ' 'system''.
It is true enough that applications
in forestry, engineering and pharmacology might well be the first to
be considered by companies investing in the research park, but
would-everyone, and everything,
not benefit from better forest
management through the development of more efficient harvesting
and replanting tools? Would the
development of, say, a marketable

that in Canada, especially in B.C.,

'A bicycle is a good way to get to

the problem is it's an abominable

The problem starts at the gates on

cracked by hundreds of roots.
We're supposed to keep to the side

A university should be a progressive place. More and more of us
use bikes. UBC bike paths are fit

Letters
'Anus pores' split hairs
Every year you find a letter or an
article about the UBC campus boys
in blue. This is a letter expressing
the feelings of a few typical low-
income, hard-working, honest,
goody-goody type students towards
the campus crusaders, as if they
don't have enough black marks
against them.
These fatheaded anus pores must
have increased their daily quota of
parking violation tickets for this
year. After going through registration line-ups, parking sticker lineups, armoury line-ups, cafeteria
line-ups, a person naturally gets
pretty fed up and desperately seeks
alternative means to minimize
waiting times and/or walking
distances ... so here's a typical
sob episode:
One exasperated evening I parked
under an ambiguous "Loading
zone — Vi hour parking" sign outside the Computer Science building
for no more than five measly
minutes to return a book to the
bookstore (this was at a little past 7
p.m. and I figured no one would be
loading/unloading then). I return
and find my eyeballs looking at a
quasi ticket on my four-wheeler.
Shit, what a way to start off this
season.
This isn't the only time I received
a blue rag slapped onto my lemon.

Last year I got a few, my friends got
a few . . . and most of them for the
dumbest reasons. Take for example, some of the articles published
in The Ubyssey. Case 1: the fine gal
who drove her parents' fancy
machine to school and parked it illegally for weeks . . . and received
no tickets (the quasis probably
thought it belonged to some big
wig). 'Til she drove her everyday
joe-student type car with B-lot
stickers and all, and parked it at the
same place . . . and received a blue
flag on the very first day.
Case 2: The young gentleman
who parked his car at Gage
residences and has his car towed
away. But guess what? This kid had
a parking sticker for that particular
spot in Gage . . . but he still had to
pay his ticket and towing charges to
get his car back. But the story ain't
over yet . . . the very next day his
vehicle was towed away again.
It's not that we break rules and
regulations, it's just that: Fact 1:
New rules and regulations appear
almost daily; Fact 2: Students are
an extremely easy source of income;
Fact 3: Quasis are crooked, nasty,
corrupted, mean and ugly.
So anyway, since a large handful
of students can't do much about it
(we have considered vandalism, but
then the quasis would probably
write more tickets to rake in the extra capital to repair the quasi station so the quasi cops can enjoy
their quasi coffee and their quasi
tickets), we'd just like to communicate to our fellow students to
watch out for the campus maggots.

Stand on guard for PetroCan
By SCOTT GRIFFIN
The sun warms my back but my
heart is heavy and cold. The air is
still yet my thoughts swirl tur-
bulently. My sight is clear but my
visions are clouded. There is talk of
taking apart Petro-Canada.

1975. Four years later, the newly-
formed   Conservative   government
The question which interests us is
that of the state of the Canadian
petroleum industry.
And Petrocan. It is not number
one. Or two. Rather it is still a small
fish. But it does have an impact.
The record of the private oil companies has been abysmal. The interests of Canada as a nation has
consistently come third after private
financial gain and the interests of
Mobil Oil Canada, 100 per cent owned by Mobil Oil.
Amoco Canada, 100 per cent owned by Standard Oil Co. of Indiana.
Chevron Canada, 100 per cent owned by Standard Oil Co. of California.
Imperial Oil, 70 per cent owned by Exxon.
Shell Canada, 79 per cent owned by Shell Investment.
Gulf Canada, 63 per cent owned by Gulf Oil Corporation.
Hudson's Bay Oil and Gas, 53 per cent owned by Continental Oil.
Aquitaine of Canada, 75 per cent owned by Societe National, ELF and

has announced its intention to disband, or sell, Petro-Canada's
assets. This would be an unwise
move. Canada needs a strong
Petrocan. Let it be, Mr. Clark.
To remain sovereign, nation-
states strive to be strong and reduce
their vulnerability. Energy has
emerged as the top priority in this
regard over the last decade. Country after country has recognized
that its government must have a
strong, and indeed the final, word
in domestic energy affairs. The
vehicle through which this aim has
been achieved is the national oil
company.
Mexico, the oil giant of tomorrow, has Pemex. Venezuela has
Petraleos de Venezuela. Britain has
British Petroleum. France, Japan,
Italy and Sweden have their own. In
fact every major Western country
has a national oil company except
the United States, which has a
number of large privately-owned
ones. Canada has Petrocan.
the mother company. The story of
our petroleum industry is, in effect,
to be found in the Book of Esso in
the King Exxon version of the oil bible.
The litany of failed Canadian
sovereignty rivals that of the
greenest banana republic. We have
stood by and watched offshore oil
destined for Canadians diverted
time after time to the United States
by the American companies which
act as intermediaries.
It was only seven months ago that
Esso, on orders from Exxon, (by
distinguishing them I'm giving them
the benefit of the doubt), diverted
oil bound for Nova Scotia and
Quebec to American customers.
The Canadian government huffed
and puffed but rather than blowing
down the house it couldn't even
tinkle the chimes above the door.
"Let those northern clowns freeze
in the dark."
A strengthened Petrocan, on the
other   hand,   could   re-establish

Canadian sovereignty. It should be
sole agent for international
petroleum exchanges. Not only
could it import oil at less expense to
the consumer (or apply the profits
from importation to high-risk
Canadian development), but it
could guarantee delivery. First, it
won't divert oil. Second, while
some exporting countries may interrupt supplies to the multi-national
carriers, they would think more
than once before risking relations
with another country.
The matter of energy is simply
too important to be left to the
private sector. A private Canadian
company may be preferable to one
that is foreign-owned. However, in
whose interests will that Canadian
company operate? The owners, of
course. There is no supreme moral
or economic reason why even a
Canadian company's goals and
needs   should   correspond   to   the
goals and needs of the Canadian
people.
Petrocan's mandate is unlike that
of any private corporation. It is
directed to follow a course of high
profile exploration, especially in
frontier areas where costs and risks
otherwise find it difficult to carry
the financial burden and the lengthy
development efforts. As well, it is
to arrange better security of supply
from foreign sources.
Petrocan is following its mandate
with flair. It was involved in half of
are   high   and   development   time
long.
It is to examine the development
of heavy oil and the oil sands. It is
to increase the Canadian presence
in the petroleum industry through
involvement of smaller Canadian
firms in joint ventures which would

Once greeted with suspicion, the
concept of joint ventures is readily
accepted by the industry. Joe . . .

THE    UBYSSEY
Page 7
Don't take Doug with a grain of salt
By TOM HAWTHORN
and KEITH BALDREY
They were exceedingly Sluggish,
but after their Friday concert there
is probahly no better compliment.
Doug and the Slugs showed that
they are a hell of a lot more than
just a good local band. They certainly convinced the filled to capacity crowd at the Commodore
ballroom, as they kept the joint
rockin' and rollin' for hours.
The Slugs are best at playing
straight-out rock, and they are sufficiently bizarre to keep West Coast
types asking what they'll do next.
While the concert was billed as
the "Last Upper," the band first
came on stage wearing dark punk
glasses to shouts of: "They're
punks, I knew they'd be punks."
But religion, not punk, was the
message Friday night. Lead singer
and head Slug Doug Bennett opened their first set with the promise of
starting a new religion called
Slugism in a temple on West
Twelfth in Kitsilano.
The Slugs then drove into a
strong set of original material,
balanced with a very competent
handling of rock standards like
"The Twist," "Route 66," and
"Pretty Woman."
But the best thing about the Slugs
is that they appear not to want commercial success, happy at this point
in time being the best and most innovative band in Vancouver. The
Pointed Sticks, the local new wave
band on the verge of commercial
stardom, might not think that the
Slugs are the best, but they probably didn't see the Friday show.
It unfortunately seems inevitable
that their immense talent will eventually mean some kind of commercial reward, but until then Bennett
and fellow band members Wally
Watson (drums), Steve Bosley.
(bass), Simon Kendall (keyboards)
and Richard Baker and John Burton on guitars will continue reelin'
and rockin' 'til the break of dawn.
"Things change so fast you don't
know where you're going," head
Slug Doug Bennett said yesterday
before leaving for a show at the
Savoy. "I'd like to get a recording
deal but we're not going to jump at
the first thing that comes along.
We've had three or four offers but
nobody has put the money on the
table, if you know what I mean.
"The current band has been
together since December. We've
laid the groundwork over two years
and it's just now starting to pay off.
Up 'til now it's been mostly word of
mouth and now the media is just
starting to pick us up," he says.
"I guess people like us because
we're one of the only bands in town
that's doing a lot of original stuff."
The original stuff includes stints
as one-night country, psychedelia
and wino bands. But as long as the
schizophrenia continues, every
show will be a Slugfest.
Six Cylinder handled two sets of
rock music fairly competently, but
were strongly overshadowed by the
Slugs. And while misplayed notes
and a few occasional lapses can
usually be easily overlooked, they
were glaring compared to the tight
music of Doug and the Slugs.
Six Cylinder has the potential of
greater things in music and certainly
was able to get the Commodore
crowd off of its feet and onto the
dance floor, but until they are able
to show a little more talent, groups
like the Slugs will continue to make
them look like a good pub band.
Period.
Some truly good rhythm and
blues vocals were provided by
Streethearts, who provided a good
balance to the rock music. The two
women and one man were unfortunately plagued by a questionable
sound system, especially during the
J.C. and the Disciples number. But
their sound, not unlike that of
Manhattan Transfer, is strong
enough for them to draw a large
following.
Magazine well read
at Commodore
By KATHRYN THURMAN
Do rock singers enjoy having
beer cans thrown at them during a
concert performance?
"I've   managed   to   enjoy   that
sometimes. Sometimes I haven't,"
admits Howard Devoto, lead
vocalist of Magazine. During the
band's concert, Sept. 10, at the
Commodore   Ballroom,   Devoto
BENNETT . . . the Commodore crowd dug Doug

definitely did not. With a look of
utter disgust on his face he menacingly aimed his microphone stand,
mid-air, at the culprit in the audience. That incident, among other
MAGAZINE
an innovative style in progressive rock
similar juvenile crowd hostilities,
initially diminished an otherwise
animated and intense performance
by the focus and founder of the
band.
A lead vocalist with the Buzz-
cocks, Howard Devoto remained
with the band just long enough to
write the words to the highly acclaimed extended play "Spiral
Scratch." After nine months and a
dozen gigs with the band he left.
Several critics have neatly
categorized Magazine's music as
progressive rock, reminiscent in attitude and style to that of the early
1970's. But Devota feels their music
is just as intense and just as concise
as punk music. "We do not have a
wasted moment in our music."
Magazine's intensity is more pronounced in concert than on vinyl. On
stage Devoto's enigmatic personality pours out of him, emptying him
and simultaneously filling the audience. He has a marvelously eye-
riveting stage manner. His waif-like
frame eerily slithers one minute,
and meditatively stands motionless
the next. With eyes closed, head '
bowed and hands firmly cupped
around the microphone he appears
to concentrate on the instrumental
introductions that begin most of the
band's songs. When he sings every
artery in his forehead and neck
bulges with bewitching tension. His
skin glistens in the light and his
large luminous eyes hypnotically
watch the audience watch him. At
center stage he reveals himself as a
prodigiously talented performer.
His presentation is surprisingly lively considering the doom-laden content of many of his lyrics and his
sneering vocal style.
Musically, Magazine has a good
stage sound. The band performs as
a tight playing, albeit anonymous,
unit. It is also a loud band. Dave
Formula, on synthesizer, organ, string machine and electric piano,
spearheads with songs from the
"Real Life" album.
On selections from "Secondhand
Daylight," his influence is more
subtle. The emphasis crosses over to
John Doyle's hard, upfront, toe-
tapping drumming and John
McGeogh 's sporadically forceful
guitar work. The band's unabashed
continuance with synthesized effects is apparent in Barry
Adamson's crisp yet complex bass
playing. Especially on "Shot By
Both Sides," described in Rolling
Stones as "the best rock and roll
record of 1978, punk or
otherwise," Adamson assumes
mellifluous dexterity. Page 8

Holy sex too dynamic
From page 1
improves or inhibits one's
sexuality," said Hermanson.
The improvement of one's sex
life through acceptance of Christ is
the theme of the last of the lectures
which will be given by American
Rusty Wright next Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.
The first two lectures, entitled
"Was Jesus God?" and "The
Resurrection," have so far not been
mentioned in any advertising for
the series. Banners and handbills
around campus have only referred
to the last lecture, entitled
"Dynamic Sex." Any possible
reference to Christ has been left
out.
"It's a common advertising
method to have a week-long campaign of 'teasers' in order to catch
attention," Rod Aim said Monday.
"The subsequent campaign next
week will have full information including the titles of all the
lectures," he said.
He admitted that "the dynamic
sex advertising kind of got out of
hand." A stolen banner reading
"Dynamic Sex — What is it?" later
appeared in a residence window
with the slogan removed, he said.
"We didn't want to see this dragged through the gutter," he said.
Aim said the purpose of the lecture
series was to "present the Christian
attitude and perspective to present
evidence for Christianity and
God."
He said since previous campaigns
had come under fire for their hardsell approach the campus crusade
had contacted other Christian
groups on campus to warn them of
the campaign.
But Hermanson and campus
Lutheran chaplain Don Johnson
said Monday they had not been
aware of the "dynamic sex" campaign and what was behind it until
informed by The Ubyssey.
The campus crusade lectures are
not primarily intended for those
who are already saved, said Aim.
"Our role on campus is to present
the claims of Christ to students and
faculty so that they can make their
own decisions about Christ and
their lives. Our emphasis is on
those, a good percentage of people,
who are seekers investigating Christianity."
Aim defended previous campus
crusade campaigns. "With 'How's
Your Love' Life?' we packed the
auditorium almost every show," he
said. "This year, with a dynamic
speaker, we're hoping to have a
good crowd."

profits from some kind of human
misery, even basic food manufacturers, because "to be hungry "is to
be miserable," Buckley added.
He used the case of 1972 U.S.
Democratic presidential candidate
George McGovern, who criticized
the president of the Ford Motor
Company for having a $400,000
yearly income, as an example of the
bias against companies. He pointed
out that the Rolling Stones rock
group made $500,000 per person on
a North American tour the same
year.
"McGovern was not about to
criticize the income of the Rolling
Stones. He might have alienated the
votes of Bob, Carol, Ted and
Alice."
Buckley also criticized U.S.
President Jimmy Carter for his
reaction to the attempt by Congress
to cut the capital gains tax.
"He reacted like the ten commandments were being violated in
the (White House) rose garden,"
Buckley said.
After the speech he predicted
Carter would not win the
Democratic presidential nomination in the 1980 election.
Buckley said he will support
Republican candidate Ronald
Reagan because "he's a personal
friend, and it's sort of a habit of
mine." He also said he liked
Reagan because "he became a conservative after reading one of my
books."

lead shielding the radiation level
would have been lower said
Raychuk.
"I'm embarrassed about this,"
he said.
Then, mocking Raychuk,
Rolfsen replied: "I'm embarrassed
that I've been getting exposed
to high levels of radiation."
The decision to use the
basement room as a way station for
radioactive material was made
either in 1966 or 1967 by the
members of the president's committee of UBC's Radio-Isotopes and
Radiation Hazards.
The current chairman of the committee, Dr. Robert Morrison, said
he knew nothing about the radiation dump, nor the identity of the
chairman in charge when the decision about the use of the room was
made.
Math department head Benjamin
Moyls said he first heard about the
storage dump from Rolfsen.
Raychuk said the room in the
Math annex is the only place on
campus that is a depository for
radioactive materials aside from
science laboratories.
"It's one of these temporary
things that got carried away," he
said.
"I agree that this is not the best
of situations and I'd like to move
it," said Raychuk. "Maybe
something can be arranged if
TRIUMF (Tri-University Meson
Facility) can get their funds.
"How are we going to notify people, with an advertisement in the
paper? There is a sign on the door."
Rolfsen said it was only a 'fluke'
that he discovered the sign on the
basement door or otherwise the
radioactive material would still be
undetected.
"This measurement (of radiation) today was very close to the
legal maximum limit," he said.
"This material was put in the
room because there was nowhere
else for it to go." said Raychuk.
The material in the basement
should have been packaged and sent
to the depository for radioactive
wastes in Chalk River, Ont., but
there was no time to package it up,
he said.
Peter Larkin, graduate studies
dean and Raychuk's superior, said
he did not know about the location
of the radioactive material. But he
said Monday the department will
phone Ottawa today and have the.
material sent to Chalk River.
The basement room originally
belonged to the faculty of
agricultural sciences and it was
chosen as a depository because it
has cement-lined walls, said Larkin.
UBC administration president
Doug Kenny said he knew nothing
about the material in the annex.
"I really wonder how much is
stored under Kenny's building,"
said Carrell.
Rolfsen said the level of radiation
monitored in Carrell's office was a
random count and possibly could
have been higher other days.
The math professors admitted
they were angry at finding
themselves powerless, to control the
situation.
"There's so little accountability
in this thing. From our point of
view it isn't safe to be that slack,"
said Klaus Hoechsmann.

Joseph Campbell
Joseph Campbell is a mythologist and author. Perhaps best known for his work The
Hero With a Thousand Faces, he has also completed a four-volume series on
mythology, The Masks of God. His latest book, The Mythic Image, deals with the
visual aspects of myth and draws upon examples from prehistory to Picasso and
Jackson Pollock to represent art not as aesthetics or realism but as symbol or dream.
He is now professor emeritus of literature at Sarah Lawrence College in New York.
Together with his wife, Jean Erdman, he is a co-founder of the Theatre of the Open
Eye. Their joint stay at UBC asvisiting professors will give a new insight on the connection between their two realms.

The UBC women's field hockey
team will open its season on Sept.
28 and 29, hosting a Canada West
University Athletic Association
tournament.
The tourney will be the first of
three league tournaments to decide
a western representative in the
Canadian Interuniversity Athletic
Union final in Victoria on Nov. 4.
UBC coach Gail Wilson has only
four returnees from last year's national championship squad, none of
whom is a back-line player. She said
defense could be the major problem
at the beginning, but added the
team is well-balanced and is not being carried by superstars.
The Thunderettes first game of
the tournament will be against the
University of Calgary at noon on
Saturday, Sept. 29.
This week's sports show in the Pit
will feature the men's soccer game
from last weekend in which UBC
tied the University of Calgary 0-0.
*    *    *
The UBC men's and women's
swim team have started training,
although their first meet will not be
until November. Until Oct. 1 the
team will train every weekday afternoon from 5:30 to 6:30 in the outdoor pool, and coach Jack Kelso is
still looking for new masochists. If
you qualify see Kelso in his office at
the aquatic centre.
Kelso is high on four first year
students swimming this year, all of
whom are national calibre. Woody
Reimer of Abbotsford, Neal
Carley, Shaun Stoddard of Prince
George and Robin Loucks of
Thunder Bay will all make his year
easier. »    *    »
Several important intramural
events and deadlines happen this
week.
The men's swim meet is today
and Wednesday at noon in the
aquatic centre. Co-rec volleyball
starts Thursday evening at 7:30 in
War Memorial Gym, and the weekly 3 kilometre run is on Friday at
noon on Mac Innes field. Registration for women's volleyball ends today, for men's tennis-tournament
Wednesday, and for men's golf,
men's soccer and women's swimming on Friday.

Cork bottles up UBC rugby fifteen
By KEVIN FINNEGAN
Last weekend was a good time to
be a former UBC rugby player. By
Sunday evening, a few members of
this year's team were wishing they
had graduated, too.
While two graduates of the UBC
rugby program were leading
Canada to a 10-6 victory over a Corn -
wall, England side on Saturday, the
Thunderbirds were dropping a 12-9
decision to the touring University of
Cork at Brockton Oval.
On Sunday the 'Birds gave up a
penalty goal with 30 seconds remaining in the game and tied their
first Vancouver Rugby Union
match 16-16 with the Trojans.
With several players currently on
the national team's European tour,
the 'Birds had to call on a number
of second team players and another
graduate to field a competitive team
against Cork.
John Billingsley, who has played
for B.C., Canada and Long Beach
State as well as UBC, was asked by
coach Donn Spence to dress for the
match against the Irish side because
this year's fly half missed practice
last week and was unfamiliar with
the 'Birds' style. Billingsley showed
his patented quickness and lateral
moves throughout the game but the
Thunderbirds were unable to
capitalize on their chances.
Don Halliday scored UBC's only
try, while Billingsley added a penalty goal and a convert. Moss Finn
scored all the Cork points on three
penalty goals and a drop kick.
The 'Birds were required to play
another match Sunday after a mix-
up in the VRU schedule. With three
players missing due to work commitments, UBC had a tough time
with the Trojans.
The Thunderbirds got tries from
Dale Turkington and Dan Macintosh and two penalty kicks and a
convert from Halliday before the
last minute score gave the Trojans
the tie.
In    England,    Andrew    Bibby
scored both tries and Preston Wiley
kicked one convert as Canada won
its second straight match of the
European tour. Nine players on the
Canadian team have played at
UBC.
Saturday the 'Birds will play
Capilano at 2:30 p.m. in the
stadium. The seconds and thirds
will also meet Capilano sides earlier
Saturday on the rugby fields on the
south campus.
By DAVE FRANCIS
The Thunderbird soccer team
won one game and tied another in
Canada West University Athletic
Association action on the weekend.
The Thunderbirds tied the
University of Calgary 0-0 Sunday at
Thunderbird Stadium in their second game of the weekend season
opener.
In a game played Saturday, the
'Birds dumped the University of
Saskatchewan 2-1.
Sunday's game against Calgary
was an exercise in futility, with both
teams evenly matched in ineffectiveness. Lofted goal shots, 20
yards wide of the net at times, and a
lot of poor forward passing resulted
in a game of uncontrolled play.
"Calgary is obviously no mean
contender," said UBC coach Joe
Johnson. "If we had any doubts
about that, we don't have any
more. They are clearly an aggressive
team, certainly no slouchers skill-
wise."
Johnson said Calgary's stronger
drive in the second half was due in
part to the 'Birds weakening
defense.
"It's a case of the 'Birds not being in midseason form," said striker
Gord Johnson. "Calgary is more
likely to be in better form since
they've been playing all summer.
Once we play a few more games as a
team, we should be able to beat
them."
On Saturday at the stadium
'Birds striker Doug Adlem scored
the only goal of the first half with a
25 foot running kick at the nine
minute mark.
Midfielder Kelly McKnight headed in the 'Birds second goal six
minutes into the second half and
Saskatchewan finally answered with
an unassisted goal by Roy Hudson
with two minutes to go in the game.
UBC and Saskatchewan each had
four shots on goal.
"Saskatchewan came within a
whisker of tying us," said coach
Johnson of the game Saturday.
"But first games are usually like
that. The team has all the desire to
play well, but usually does not do as
well as they or the coach would
like."
The 'Birds take to the road now
to face Calgary a second time Friday at McMahon Stadium.

SINKING THROUGH TRAP DOOR in stadium turf, UBC soccer player watches helplessly as Calgary forward
discovers this ball was kept in storage room below hydro substation, giving it magnetic qualities that repel it from
cleats. Ever wonder what other secret storage rooms are out there?
