Pubiic pressure erodes beach plan
By GEOF WHEELWRIGHT
A controversial $12 million
scheme to control cliff erosion on
Wreck beach temporarily ran
aground Thursday night.
UBC's board of governors, who
are studying the plan, have agreed
to open up the erosion control problem to public input.
The move came after a late night
meeting with members of the Wreck
beach committee who presented
board representatives George Morfitt and Stanley Weston with alternative plans they claim are cheaper.
The Wreck beach committee is an
ad-hoc group of environmentalists
and sunbathers.
Committee spokesman John
Madill said, "we're pleased because
we hadn't been assured input
before. The cost (of the new proposal)   is   likely   much   less,   the
materials much cheaper and it can
be phased in.
"It does not have to cost $12
million."
Madill said the Swan Wooster
plan uses the wrong materials and
would raise the beach unnecessarily
high. The committee's proposal,
developed by Seattle marine
foreshore conservationist Wolf
Bauer, would use a lower beach
build-up in conjunction with a
wedge-shaped fill going out into the
ocean, he said.
Morfitt said the committee's proposals were helpful and will be
closely examined by the board, but
added that he wants to make a decision as soon as possible because the
board has been studying the erosion
control problem for more than 20
years.
"But it's come a long way from
just trucking in rocks," he said.
He added that money for the project will eventually have to come
from the provincial government,
because the university is currently
suffering severe budget cutbacks.
"We don't have any more to put
into this project than anyone else,
but 1 don't think the provincial
government is going to be happy
with spending $12 million."
Morfitt said because the board
will have to sell the proposal to the
provincial government, he
welcomes less expensive proposals
from the public.
He said during construction of
any erosion control landscaping
there will be no major roads built to
the beach, and barge will move all
construction materials to and from
the site.
"It's a political matter, and
unless there is a huge price difference (between land transport and
barge), it will be done by barge."
Committee member Chris
Marchant said walking trails and
stairs to the beach should be improved if erosion control is to be effective.
By GEOF WHEELWRIGHT
A UBC board of governors
member has surfaced in the centre
of a potential conflict of interest
controversy concerning the university's new research park.
Allan Crawford's Anatek Electronics company is hoping to get
space in the 58 acre park for thick
film material and switchboard
development research if it can "get
favorable terms," Anatek manager
Doug Smeaton said Thursday.
But Anatek's interest in research
park tenancy represents a serious
conflict of interest, said Valgeet
Johl, Alma Mater Society external
affairs officer.
"When there are people interested in a research park and they
want to bring their company into it,
and they're involved in the policy
and decision-making process,
you're going to have problems."
She said unless an impartial body
of students, community members
and administration representatives
have the last say on who comes into
the park, Anatek's presence will be
a conflict of interest for Crawford.
But under current plans UBC's
board will have the final word on all
decisions concerning the park,
although a management committee
will handle most of the administrative work.
Johl said that since Crawford is a
member of the board he could influence whether or not his company
is allowed to enter the park.
But UBC administration president Doug Kenny said Anatek will
be treated like any other company if
it applies for space.
"It would have to be looked at
on its own merits," he said.
Smeaton said it was premature to
discuss Anatek's possible conflict
of interest in the park, because the
company has not been asked if it
wants to lease space in the park.
But he added, "We are certainly
interested. It's something we'd like
to consider."
Crawford was en route to San
Francisco late Thursday and was
unavailable for comment.
Anatek will be one, of five B.C.
companies exhibiting science
displays at the official opening of
the Discovery Foundation Sept. 28.
The provincial government is
establishing the foundation to promote research parks at campuses all
over the province.
Math profs still hot
By JULIE WHEELWRIGHT
The storage of radioactive
sodium-22 below the UBC
Mathematics annex was nothing to
be concerned about, a radiation inspector officer said Thursday.
However, UBC's Math professors are still angry about the incident.
Twenty-two professors have
drafted a letter to the radioisotopes
and radiation hazards committee
calling for a complete description of
what the annex had been used for in
the past.
"The important thing is to find
out what had been in there," said
Dale Rolfson, one of the math professors.
"I think the university itself
should call an investigation, they
owe that to us," he said.
The letter sent to the committee
demands there be a written confirmation that the depository existed,
a complete log of the deposits and
withdrawals, as well as a history of
the depository showing the
monitored radiation levels.
When the radioactive material
was moved out of the Math annex it
was left standing in the basement
for a couple of hours, said Rolfson.
Wayne Greene, the B.C. inspector for the Atomic Energy Control
Board, a branch of the Atomic
Energy Commission, said there was
no infraction of UBC's licence to
store the radioactive material
because radiation levels were below
the legal limit.
One of the important factors in
the    issue    is    whether    the
radioisotopes and radiation hazards
committee knew about the use of

Rejection beats drowning
You can't swim, so Aquasoc is out.
The last time you tried to play chess you swallowed
your queen while contemplating your next move, so
table games are out.
And you became incontinent the last time you saw
an airplane take off, so skydiving is probably out,
too.
But relax. There's still a club for you at clubs' day.
The reject club.
By noon Thursday 28 rejects had signed their
names and written their life stories in 21 words or
less. The first to sign was Melvin Schmuck, who explained that his mother didn't have any children who
lived.
The rejects are planning to hold their first and only
meeting next week, when the member with the fewest
votes will be elected president.
There are 64 other clubs displaying their talents
during clubs' day, which continues all day today in
SUB.
The most popular club so far is the fitness club,
which had attracted 250 members by noon Thursday.
Club organizers expect to exceed the 750 members
the club drew last year.
The dance club had snared 150 members and the
ballet club 90 in the first morning.
Three political parties set up booths and the New
Democrats doubled the Liberals in new members, 60
to   31.   The   Progressive  Conservatives  said  they
weren't after new members but were only hosting an
information booth.
"With religious groups on all four sides playing
music, it's too noisy to explain to people what we're
all about," said UBC PC club president Bill Embrey.
The NDP club collected about 100 signatures on a
petition asking the federal government to preserve
Petro-Canada.
Club's day continues today, and the skydiving exhibition will take place at 1 p.m. on Mclnnes field
behind SUB if the weather cooperates.

Cuts cause million dollar debt
TORONTO (CUP) — Ryerson
Polytechnical Institute will be $1.5
million in debt this spring although
46 full-time equivalent positions
have been axed from the payroll as
part of a cutbacks program.
Ryerson joins the ranks of
Carleton and Laurentian universities as Ontario post-secondary
institutions expected to be $1
million or more in debt by the end
of the academic year because of
underfunding by the provincial
government.

Cops are
'muzzled'
Policemen are getting frustrated
with a court system so stifled by law
it cannot administer justice, according to a former Vancouver police
officer.
"There's something wrong with
the system, and I think it's the
lawyers," Bernie Smith, who
patrolled a East Vancouver beat for
more than 30 years, said Thursday.
"Policemen are frustrated with a
system that pays a guy $1,000 a
month to arrest someone and then
pays 10 guys $3,000 a month to get
him off," he said in Law building
room 101.
Smith criticized the justice system
for allowing lawyers to be self-
governing while clamping down on
policemen.
"You have tied (policemen), you
have muzzled them. They can hardly do their job," he said.
Smith said that despite police
restrictions, no corruption exists in
the Vancouver Police Department.
There is little organized crime in
Vancouver, he added, and no one
has ever offered him a bribe on duty.
Smith was known as "Whistling
Smith" during his years on the Vancouver police force and was the subject of a recent National Film Board
documentary that won an Academy
Award.

the annex as a waystation for
radioactive materials, said Greene.
Chairman of the committee,
Robert Morrison, said Monday he
was not aware of the situation until
contacted by The Ubyssey.
"I was surprised that they (the
committee) didn't know anything
about it," Greene said.
However, because the level of
radiation did not exceed the legal
limit, the licence was not violated
and the professors do not have
grounds for an investigation, he
said.
The situation is interesting but
UBC is living within the criteria
established by the licence," he said.
Greene said he had known about
the depository for several years and
knew it had been monitored for
levels of radiation.
Though the radiation levels did
not exceed the legal amount there
was not enough attention paid to
storing the radioactive material,
said Metro Dmytriw, information
officer for the Atomic Energy Commission of Canada.
"It sounds to me like it is not a
happy situation," said Dmytriw.

The budget, which was passed by
the board of governors May 28, was
able to save the 19 positions by adding just under $500,000 to the institutions debt load. The board
plans to reach the break even point
by 1983.
President Walter Pitman is placing the blame on inadequate in
creases of "already substandard"
levels of provincial funding to keep
pace with inflation.
The province's per-student funding rose by only $113 to $3,672 this
year. Assuming a nine per cent inflation rate, Pitman said there had
been a five per cent drop in real funding.
This year's budget allows only a
4.4 per cent increase in salaries this
year. Should contract settlements
be higher, further cuts will have to
be made.
"We can't further savage equipment and book purchases," Pitman
said. He added that he feels the difference will have to be made up by
reducing hiring, travel and expenses
in other areas.
This year's equipment budget of
$230,000 is down $670,000 from
two years ago.
The people hit by the budget cuts
were in nine-month long teaching
and staff positions. No full-time
faculty members or staff have been
laid off. Of the 46 positions cut, 34
were sessional or part-time instructors.

C'tee steady white Wedepohl wavers
UBC women's committee
members remain strongly opposed
to the annual Lady Godiva ride
despite applied science dean Martin
Wedepohl's recent shift in attitude.
Last February, while he was still
dean of engineering at the University of Manitoba, Wedepohl told The
Ubyssey he would stop the ride.
However, on Wednesday he said he
had no intention of doing anything
about it himself.
Committee members Heather
McLeod and Mary Winder said
they are against the ride, held by
UBC engineers each year, because it
symbolizes and perpetuates sexism.
"I'm not sure that the majority
of the engineers realize that the
Godiva ride is offensive to a large

Legitimate tickets, which have
been sold out for three weeks, bear

Star Mahara, another committee
member.
"We have yet to decide how we
can best encourage the engineers to
look reasonably at an alternative to
the Godiva ride in creating the sensationalism which they thrive on,"
Mahara said.
The women's committee hopes to
gain support of both the administration and the community in
putting a stop to this year's ride.
The committee has suggested
organizing a boycott of College
Printers, which annually prints the
Red Rag, the engineers' sexist and
racist newsletter. Committee,
members say they hope that this
would prevent the engineers from
publicizing the Lady Godiva ride.
Alma Mater Society president
Brian Short said the AMS will try to
prevent this year's ride, but would
not give details. Short said interested groups should "work on
the engineers themselves." It would
be most ineffective to expect the
engineers to do something about the
situation, he said.
Students are pressed for sex
Sex harassment
case dismissed
NEW HAVEN, CONN. (CPS) — After a seven-
month wait for a verdict, a U.S. judge has ruled in
Yale University's favor, dismissing a suit filed by a
woman student who was sexually harassed by a Yale
professor.
Lawyers for former student Pamela Price said they
will file an appeal in the controversial "A-for-a-lay"
case.
Price and five other Yale undergraduates filed suit in
1977, charging that Yale had failed to provide adequate grievance procedures for sexual harrassment
cases, and had therefore violated Title IX of the
Education Amendments of 1972. Title IX prohibits
schools receiving federal aid from discriminating on
the basis of sex.
If the court had found Yale had in fact violated Title
IX strictures, the university could have lost all its
federal funding.
Judge Ellen Burns ruled that Yale professor Raymond Duvall, who is no longer at Yale, did not propose to give Price, one of his students, an "A" in
return for sexual favors and a "C" is she refused.
Price, who is now a law student at the University of
California at Berkeley, got a "C".
In an eight-page decision Burns agreed that Yale's
grievance procedures had been ad hoc and inadequate,
but that Price had suffered no direct damage as the
result.
The decision was termed "thorough-going
gutlessness" by Linda Hoaglund, one of Price's
lawyers. Added legal assistant Phyllis Crocker, "What
we are trying to prove is that this is about harassment,
not about Pamela's grade."
Coed dorm safer
DENVER (CPS) — "Sexual pressure" is more common in sexually-segregated dorms than in coed dorms,
according to a recent survey published in a U.S.
magazine.
The survey showed that four out of five students living in coed dorms found it easier to form non-sexual
relationships with the opposite sex.
However, more than half the students responding to
the survey said they have little or no sex life at all. And
almost 85 per cent of the men living in coed dorms said
they make it a policy not to date women living in their
own dorms. Page 4

Using ends to
justify means
You can bet they're drinking to administation
president Doug Kenny's health in the Howe
Street boardrooms.
And he's also becoming a big hit with UBC's
board of governors.
All that corporate joy is the result of his
recently-announced plans for a 58 acre research
park on campus. In one fell swoop, which took
most observers by surprise by its swiftness, he
turned UBC into a business playland.
The dizzying ride is only beginning. Interested
companies have already started lining up outside
Kenny's door to get in on the deal. And he's only
too happy to play carnival barker.
But the merry-go-round must be stopped,
before it spins out of control.
Almost without concern for the implications
of such a move, Anatek Electronics has brashly
announced its interest in grabbing one of the
research park's sites.
Anatek is owned by UBC board member Allan
Crawford, a man who had knowledge of the
plans for the park. He knows that he stands to
earn money from such a move.
His position of influence with the board and its
plans definitely puts into question both his
motives and that of the board. No one is willing
at this time to prove otherwise.
The entire development, in fact, is shrouded in
secrecy. No one with any kind of authority has
been permitted to even hint at which firms will
be involved.
Education minister Pat McGeer and Kenny
have so far succeeded in ensuring that other
groups on campus have no input whatsoever in
the development.
They are furthering the belief that there are
two groups on campus, those with clout and
those catered to when necessary. No prizes are
awarded for those who correctly guess where
students are slotted.
The student representative assembly has called for a full public hearing into the scheme, but
at this stage it is like the mouse screaming at the
cat to pay attention.
The stakes behind the development are just
too large for Kenny, McGeer and everyone else
involved to allow inspection and delays by what
they perceive as an inconsequential body.
Considering the secrecy behind the development, it appears that McGeer is using the
research park scheme as his last hurrah as a
Social Credit minister.
It has been known for a long time that McGeer
is unhappy as a cabinet minister, debating with
other ministers, shoestring high school
graduates who mistrust him because of his
education.
The second factor is that after another few
years in office his tenure as a UBC professor will
be in jeopardy. He's made the decision. McGeer
wants to continue as a UBC researcher.

irritated umpire Kerry Regier as he took his place behind the plate. And The Used-to-be team was ready. Richard Noble, Ben Wong, Betsy Probyn and Gregg Mittag
all stood on the dugout steps watching Brad Stock, Stanley Westby and Glenn Buhr swinging their 40 ounce bats. Ross Burnett was throwing screwballs in the
bullpen at fellow screwballs Wendy Hunt and Ingrid Matson. Statiscian Garry Brookfield was trying to figure out the average number of typos there are in stories
done by Randy Hahm and Kathryn Thurman. But he was interrupted when the home team took the field. The infield was steady. Heather Conn took the "cold corner" at third, and Wee Tommy practiced missing groundballs at short. Keith Baldrey took second because no one else wanted to. The Wheelwrights were platoon-
ed at first, even though they had quite different batting styles and hated to be grouped together. Peter Menyasz happily trotted out to centrefield, where Vic
Bonderoff and Steve "Spaceman" McClure joined him. Seemed like no one wanted to be called either right or left fielders. Which suited the team. But the day was
saved by the presence of master batter and team captain Kevin Finnegan, who was renowned for drinking as many beers after a game as he had hits. But as we all
know, the air was shattered by the force of his mighty blow, all for not, and the whole team decided to meet in the rubber room (gym E) of the sports complex to
.play a real game at 11:30 a.m. Saturday.
Letters
Kenny wants the
wrong park plants
An open letter to administration
president Doug Kenny:
I was hardly surprised by your recent announcement of a planned
construction of a 46 acre "industrial research park" on the
southern edge of UBC campus. In
the past, your administration has
shown an intense desire to mimic
the mindless "progress at any cost"
philosophy of private corporations;
a philosophy which has contributed
to the gradual but complete destruction of much of our natural world.
It is truly shocking, however, when
an institution supposedly committed to logic and the human race acts
in a completely callous and illogical
manner by agreeing to a plan that
would destroy yet another segment
of the last remaining natural forest
on the lower mainland.
Such a decision is particularly
shocking when those essential services on the Endowment Lands, including day care centres and old age
homes, are lacking in funds and are
working at half-efficiency. It seems
that your administration has plenty
of money when it comes to road
construction and tree-chopping,
but not when it comes to young
children and the needy aged people
of our community.
Any act of callousness has its accompanying set of rationalizations;
I am not concerned with your particular rationalization for the
destruction of 46 acres of UBC
woods. What concerns me is the
essential point, which should shine
through all talk of "progress" or
"necessity"; the point that, far
from being the centre of vision and
thought that it should be, UBC and
its administration has shown itself
once more to be no different from
the myopic, over-bearing
technology that is destroying our
world.
The long-term product of such
myopia is already evident today, in
every ecological disaster that occurs
somewhere in the world. You have
the dubious satisfaction of knowing
that, with all your talk of "gain" by
UBC students, your administration,
in league with the car-dealers
presently in power in Victoria, has
contributed a wee bit more to the
environmental destruction that is
threatening our planet.
This alone is condemnation
enough.

Campus Crusade

Just a point of information:
Campus Crusade for Christ is not a
sect. A sect is a group who by their
beliefs and practices differ from the
accepted norm to mainline (orthodox) Christianity. Campus
Crusade is an interdenominational
Christian student movement comprised of students who are members
of local Vancouver churches of all
denominations (Anglican,
Lutheran, Baptist, Presbyterian,
Roman Catholic, etc.).
Our purpose is to present the
truth of our common faith in Jesus
Christ so that others in this
academic community have the opportunity to investigate the validity
of his claims and teachings.

Purcell strings pull together
By KERRY REGIER
The newly regrouped Purcell
String Quartet did not let their nervousness in playing together for the
first time detract from their concert
at the SFU Theatre last Saturday.
Their great enthusiasm swept over
flaws in ensemble and technique
that only years of playing together
could correct.
Two new performers have joined
the Quartet. Leader Sydney Humphreys comes to the group from
Britain, where he led the well-
known and successful Aeolian
Quartet for over twenty years. His
new second violin, Bryan King, has
played with Humphreys as a colleague in the past.
In performance, both showed
themselves to be technically able,
although inexperience with the
group and audience led to some
nervousness that was reflected ir,
their playing. Humphrey's trouble
showed up largely as a tendency to
dominate the quartet. Tension occasionally led him to lose control of
his bow in unintentional spiccato
and in fingering, suddenly squeaking harmonics.
King's worries developed in the
opposite direction. His playing
retreated so effectively behind the
Handel bread for
Mozart filling
By GLENN BUHR
Handel was the "bread surrounding a Mozart sandwich" at the
noon hour concert by the CBC Vancouver orchestra Wednesday at the
UBC School of Music. The music
was old and fashioned after the
times it was written but it was clearly interpreted and conducted.
Boris Brott, principal conductor
of two Canadian orchestras and
one British orchestra, was guest
conductor. It was he who informed
the audience of the program
change that put a Handel Concerto
Grosso at the beginning and end of
the concert, with six Mozart kir-
chensonaten (Church Sonatas] in
the middle, the meat of what Brott
called a "Mozart sandwich."
Opening with Handel's Concerto
Grosso Op. 3 no. 1, the orchestra
got off to a dynamic start. The
Allegro movements were bouncy
and light — almost danceable, and
the Largo was lyrical and precise in
its  slow  tempo.   The  soloists  on
oboe, violin and bassoon interpreted these contrasts noticeably
well, as did Brott himself as con
ductor.
Mozart's Church Sonatas were
commissioned by the Archbishop
of Salzburg to be short so they
would fit properly into the church
service. Each is about three minutes
and thirty seconds long and, as
Brott quipped, could have been
commissioned by RCA Victor in the
times when each 78 RPM recording
had to be exactly three minutes and
thirty seconds long. Though these
works are thoroughly steeped in the
so-called "prissy" style of 18th century classicism, Mozart's genius
and the clarity of Wednesday's per
formance could not be denied.
Organist Patrick Wedd joined the
orchestra for the Mozart sonatas.
His cadenza on the final work was
typical of the high level of musicianship displayed by the orchestra.
The concert was recorded for
later broadcast by the CBC.
shield of the other three musicians
that only rarely could the listener be
certain just what it was King was
doing.
Purcell veteran violist Phillipe Et-
ter became slightly infected with
this nervousness and at times his
tone faltered with uncertainty, but
Ian Hampton kept solid control of
his cello at all times. His self-
assurance brings me to suspect that
it is he and not Humphreys who
leads the quartet.
Haydn's Emperor Quartet began
the program. God Uphold Franz the
Kaiser, a Haydn hymn, gave this
quartet its name, as the composer
used the tune as the basis of a
series of variation in the slow movement. Much later the tune became
infamous as Deutschland Uber
Alles.
This light work was performed
with the requisite delicacy and
poise, but again the newcomers'
hesitancy led to some uncertainties
in ensemble, especially in rubato.
Milhaud's Seventh Quartet filled
out the first half of the program. In
this nebulous work the musical
shortcomings of the group were
less noticeable than in the precise
Haydn.
Beethoven's Opus 127 Quartet
made up the final half of the program, and was well received by the
audience. Op. 127 is the most approachable of the late quartets of
Beethoven though like Haydn it requires absolute precision from the
performers. For this challenge the
Purcell Quartet gathered itself and
leaped into the music.
Even the enormously difficult
slow movement never lacked for
wit or tension. This web-like movement often collapses, as it requires
intense and unbroken concentration from the audience and performers alike, but the old and new
Purcells together drew the audience-
into their enthusiasm for the musjc.
As if to show their versatility.
even in their newness, the Quartet
gave as an encore Schubert's unfinished Quartettsatz. This nervous
one movement work was a sharp
contrast to the good humour of
Beethoven's work, and the Purcells
handled it with perfect assurance
and strength of character.
While it is not immediately obvious that the change of personnel
in the Purcell Quartet is a change
for the better, it is notable that the
musicians complement each other
well. Only time together can fill the
gaps evidenced in their Saturday
concert.
VSO blunders and blusters into new season
By KERRY REGIER
Blundering and blustering into a
new season, the Vancouver
Symphony under Kazuyoshi
Akiyama displayed all the well-
intentioned feebleness of wit
Mozart poked fun at in his Musical
Joke.
Monday's concert, a very conservative one, began with Mozart's
Magic Flute Overture. Akiyama
gave to this work all the delicate
poise and balance of a bogged hippopotamus. The music wallowed
through dutifully, and lumbered out
again at the end.
Responding appropriately to
Akiyama's lumpy interpretation of
the music, the VSO loutishly fumbled about. Cues were missed and
string section entries were muddled, all leading into a general melee
at which Mozart surely would have
laughed briefly before returning to
his billiard room.
Following Akiyama's musical
joke, Ida Haendel played the solo in
the Sibelius Violin Concerto. Not as
conservative in harmony and
melody as Mozart, this work is a virtuoso showpiece. Haendel has in
the past shown her skill at challenging concertos and she played
Brahms in her first public concert.
Haendel    did    not    inspire    the
Symphony to more but fell herself
to the sloppy level of mistakes and
unimaginative playing. Accidental
double stopping, poor intonation
and clumsy phrasing marred
seriously her beautiful tone and
otherwise exact bowing.
The low point came in the
Brahms Second Symphony that
closed the program. This is Brahms'
most surely populist work, ending
with a gratuitously loud fourth
movement.
Akiyama showed his inability to
excite with subtlety and strength
with the cheap P.T. Barnum trick of
a wild accelerando in the noisy ending. Backwoods amateurs resort
to these measures, not able to draw
upon the personal resources of a
major symphony conductor. A truly
capable conductor can provide
greater drive and strength from a
rock-steady rhythm on which to
found a climax, rather than the shifting mudbank of Akiyama's direction.
The audience couldn't wait to
show its appreciation of good
music, and began to drown out the
music during the last chord.
Free of charge during the entire
concert was a bourdon, as of distant artillery fire, provided by the
Orpheum Theatre air conditioning.

nterview
Bram Tchaikovsky
"Good Lord, it's all a joke you
know. I treat it all as a joke. It's all
transitory you know old chap,"
philosophizes Bram Tchaikovsky.
He has been a rock 'n roll addict
for years. In 1961, at the age of 11,
he began playing the guitar. "After
I started playing the guitar, I forgot
about everything else. It was just
rock 'n roll and my guitar after
that."
In the early 1970s Tchaikovsky
joined the Heroes and recorded
Bruce Springsteen's song Growing
Up as a single for United Artists.
Tchaikovsky on lead vocals and
guitar, Micky Broadbent on backing
vocals, bass and guitar (left-handed
and upside down) and Keith Boyce
on drums (formerly of The Heavy
Metal Kids). After playing a few
gigs with Battleaxe, Tchaikovsky
officially and amicably left The
Motors ia mid-1978. Battleaxe
changed its name to Bram
Tchaikovsky and obtained a record
contract with Radar Records. The
band has recently expanded to a
quartet and now includes Dennis
Forbes on guitar and Keith Boyce
We're not interested in politics.
I think that's boring ...
We want to write songs
about girls and love.
Then he joined another British rock
group called Smith. After Smith
disbanded in 1977, he auditioned
for The Motors and was rejected.
Later that year, he auditioned a second time and was accepted.
"What happened was, the first time
I tried to get it, I didn't. And the second time they asked me. It was
more of an invitation, really."
Thus began his love-hate relationship with The Motors. Nick
Garvey and Andy McMaster were
the exclusive songwriters of The
Motors and wanted to keep it that
way. "I couldn't ever work out why
The Motors were so against putting
some of my songs on the albums,"
says Tchaikovsky. "I had a dozen
fresh new songs and they wouldn't
do. They wanted to be THE
songwriters in the band and that
was it. There was no two ways
around it, so I just thought alright
boys . . . why hang about?"
While Garvey and McMaster
were in the studio and songwriting,
Bram kept out of trouble by forming his own band on the side. It was
called    Battleaxe    and    included
on drums.
Ubyssey: Are you surprised at
the positive reaction the band is
presently experiencing in North
America?
Tchaikovsky: Yeah, fairly. You
could say that 'cause it's the first
album and we're basically, an
unknown band, nobody knows
who we are. Bram Tchaikovsky
means nothing to most people. It's
really^ pleasing that you can do a
first album and it's right the first
time."
Ubyssey: What has the North
American audience reaction been
toward your concerts?
Tchaikovsky: Good, except for
one gig. But that was our fault. We
played like a bag of shit. And the
rest of them have ranged from good
to ludicrous.
Ubyssey: What was the British
press reaction to the band's success in North America?
Tchaikovsky: It pissed them off
at first. They didn't like being proved wrong, for a start. And now they
are saying  they actually  did  like
Bram Tchaikovsky, but they were
just saying that they didn't for the
fun of it. It's quite funny really."
Ubyssey: In which country was
the band initially recognized?
Tchaikovsky; The first place
anything really broke out was in
Holland. The single Smiles was
released on Criminal Records and
reached number 15 on the charts.
Then it went from there, from
Holland to America and now here
(Canada). In North America we've
sold the most albums so far, which
amazes me. It's really strange.
We've picked up an enormous
amount of airplay over here as well.
It's ridiculous. I suppose it's
because the people who programme the radio stations thought
it was the acceptable face of new
wave. Which it is in a lot ways, I
think. That's the only explanation I
can come up with.
Ubyssey: Are you aware of the
Strange Man, Changed Man
album's position on the charts?
Broadbent: Only when we're going up the charts. I've lost interest.
The week before we arrived in
America the album was number 36
in Billboard's U.S. Top 100. We
couldn't believe it. But when we
got here it dropped to 72.
Ubyssey: The pop-rock assimilation seems to be a new trend coming out of England these days.
Would you agree?
Broadbent: Yes, because a lot of
the British punk bands not only can't
play well, but they don't have any
good material. So I think it's only
the bands that write good pop-rock
songs, like The Records and The
Members, and ourselves, that are
starting a new trend in England.
Ubyssey: Which topics do you
prefer writing songs about?
Broadbent: We're not interested
in writing about politics. I think
that's boring. I have my views and
I'm not going to force them on people who don't want to listen.
Anyway I'm not particularly interested in anybody else's political
views. We want to write songs
about girls and love and trashing
around and all that.
Ubyssey: Do you have a set format for songwriting?
Tchaikovsky: Sometimes I start
writing a song and then it takes
over and in the end it writes itself.
But sometimes we write 'em between us. If we're stuck we ask each
other. If not we just carry on.
Broadbent: Writing is one of
those things you have to do. It's
really hard work. Basically, Bram
and I co-write the songs. We write
in all kinds of different ways. We
write together and separately.
There is no set format, really.
Whatever happens, happens.
Usually I start writing a song and if I
get stuck, which .happens quite
often, and I have just a riff and a
verse I'll show Bram what I've got
and see what he can do about it.
And vice versa.
Ubyssey: Have you written many
like that. Originally we were a three
piece band and live we only had
two vocalists and one guitar which
was very restrictive. When we got
into the studio we tried to keep the
production down. But it was difficult and frustrating. Now that we
have the fourth member, Dennis
Forbes, on second guitar and
vocals we can do more. And I
should think the second album will
be a bit fuller. The band is changing
so fast.
Ubyssey: Has the band's stage
sound been affected by the transition from playing clubs to playing
You do not write songs,
songs write you.
You can't go through life
with a contrived attitude.
songs for the next album yet?
Broadbent: We've got four songs
written, including Rock 'n Roll
Cabaret which we're playing on this
tour. We're very lazy. Our manager
keeps pushing us to write songs.
But when it comes down to it we
go away for a couple of weeks and
force ourselves to write. We wrote
the first album in just two weeks,
just sitting around doing it. But
because the first album has been so
successful the record company is
letting us take our time to make
sure we make a good second
album. They're not going to push
us so that we rush and write a lot of
shit. Really, the people at Radar
(Records) are very good about it.
Ubyssey: With the next album do
you feel compelled to write the type
of songs people expect from the
band after they've heard the first
album?
Tchaikovsky: We're not that contrived. You do not write songs,
songs write you. You can't go
through life with that contrived attitude. It's a mad enough business
to be in any way without trying to
play the same fuckin' mind games
that they play. So what you have is
a complete bunch of lunatics who
spend their whole time doing their
best to confuse and divide.
Ubyssey: Is that what the record
company does?
Tchaikovsky and Broadbent: No!
That's what we do!!
Ubyssey: Who will produce the
second album?
Broadbent: Just the group will
do it, probably. How do you choose
a producer? 'Cause we don't sound
like anyone else. And probably his
idea of what you should sound like
is nothing like your idea. So you
save a lot of problems by doing it
yourself. All we need is a good
engineer. Mind you, we were thinking of asking Steve Miller, who produces himself, because his vocal
sound is similar to the way we like
it.
Ubyssey: On the first album did
you try to simulate the same sound
you have in concert?
Broadbent: We tried to start out
larger venues?
Broadbent: As a support band,
when we were on tour with
Foreigner, we didn't get a sound
check. Sometimes we were allowed
five minutes to check only the
monitors. So we got one of their
crew to do our band's sound. A
sound check isn't that important if
you have a good sound man. Actually we can walk on stage and get
our own sound balance almost
straight away. Now, we have our
own sound man, at vast expense.
They are very expensive people to
employ. The soundman earns
about ten times more money than I
do.
Ubyssey: How is the present
North American tour coming along?
Tchaikovsky: This is a trash
around America tour. We're having
a good time on the bus, getting
very drunk, taking a lot of drugs,
fighting with our manager, and being very ill most of the time.
Ubyssey: When on tour, do you
go around trashing hotels?
Tchaikovsky: I can honestly say
that never in my life have I ever intentionally broken anything in a
hotel. The worst damage I've done
in a hotel was getting so drunk at a
bar that I couldn't see. And as I
went into my hotel room I actually
went into.the shower and I couldn't
figure out why I was in a room that
was a very small box that echoed a
lot. I tripped over the edge of the
shower and fell out of the shower
and as I went down I grabbed the
door to try and hold myself up and
the door came off. And that's the
worst damage I've done in any
hotel. I did more damage to myself.
It was very painful.
Ubyssey: One final question.
What image do you want for the
band?
Broadbent: We don't think of
things like that. We don't sit around
and try to think of a corporate image. We just do what we want.
We're just a bunch of loonies, really.

THE    UBYSSEY
Page Friday 3 Bop 'til they drop—that
makes Tchaikovsky hot
By KATHRYN THURMAN
I wonder if Bram Tchaikovsky
ever thought of pursuing a career in
politics?
Friendly chap, that Tchaikovsky.
The carefree way he shook hands
with people in the audience, like a
politician campaigning for votes.
Not quite dressed for the part,
though. In starched white shirt,
stovepipe denims with cuffs, rainbow striped suspenders, Bram
came across as a charming, clean-
cut spiv — no less.
In the opening song of the con
cert set, Tchaikovsky emotionally
wailed: "Ladies and gents, let me
introduce myself to you. I'm not
really sure what it is I'm suppose to
do .,   "
Last Saturday at the SUB
Balliuom he knew. Make 'em bop
til they drop. And he did just that.
The band's music is modern,
danceable pop-rock which draws
on a range of influences from Buddy Holly and Eddie Cochran to The
Stones and The Who. If there is any
obvious contemporary influence, it
is with .Nick Lowe and Dave Edmunds (who front the Rockpile
quartet). Their blend of pop-rock
bears an uncanny resemblance to
that of the Bram Tchaikovsky —
Micky Broadbent songwriting
team. With the latter partnership,
the result is sometimes magnificent, and sometimes pedestrian.
With the more distinctive love
ballads like Nobody Knows, Sarah
Smiles, and Lady From The USA,
the band was ift top form. On these
songs Tchaikovsky showed considerable emotion and feeling for
melody, while the band swung in
the background, led by Micky
Broadbent on bass, Dennis Forbes
on guitar, and the hard-hitting
Keith Boyce on drums.
On I'm A Believer, the punch fell
short, resulting in a heavy-handed
. and diffuse feel.
But let's not nit-pick.
These guys are  good  rockers.
The band is great to hear live, and
'.great to dance to, and even more
fun to vyatch on stage.
I'll   cast   my   vote   for    Bram
Tchaikovsky any day.

Bram breathes life into Monkees
By STEVE McCLURE
Bopping and throbbing in front
of 900 screaming normaloids,
English rocker Bram Tchaikovsky
delivered an earsplitting set of inspired mayhem Friday in the SUB
ballroom.
Starting off with his current hit,
Strange    Man,    Changed    Man,
Tchaikovsky's approach became
apparent. Flashy, overamplified
guitar, tight, smooth vocals and a
crowd pleasing sensibility that includes sprtting into the faces of the
assembled groovers to provide an
extra touch of punk authenticity.
Tchaikovsky can't be faulted for
being lazy. He«nd his band showed
that they-love performing, evidenced by Tschaikovsky-'s bucktoothed
grin as he happily worked his -way
through spendid three chord extravaganzas.
The band managed to breathe life
into the fetid cofpse of I'm a
Believer,, an old iMonkees tune.
Tchaikovsky   and   company   often

sounded as if they had just emerged
from a time warp and in the process
had picked up a few decibels and
some nasty habits.
Sharon Likes Little White Pills, a
song dedicated to the speedy
lifestyle of one of the roadies'
wives really got things moving
towards the end of the night. After
that, chaos ruled as Johnny B.
Goode and Rock n' Roll Music
burst forth, inducing fits of pogoing
frenzy in the crowd.
But it took nearly the whole evening to get the crowd to the point
where body temperatures started to
rise. The problem is that Tchaikovsky is really static and predictable,
and operates from a very limited
musical base.
His choice of Tchaikovsky as a
stage name should provide a clue as
to his musical direction, a retreat into the past rather than an attempt
to break out of established forms.
Opening for Bram Tschaikovsky
was Pulse, a local group that shows
how a coherent, tight style of new
wave rock can, sound. They too
journeyed into the past with an ex-
6ellent cover of the Rascals' Good
Love. But unlike Tchaikovsky, they
showed some originality. They
should be worth watching in the
future.

Country-rock, blues, country and

SUB auditorium Wednesday in the
form of Blue Northern.
The six man band is one of the
more versatile of Vancouver's local
talents, and they put on a tight,
well rounded show for about 175
people.
The band opened their set with a
hot instrumental featuring Gary
Comeau on fiddle. The first half
hour Of the show consisted of their
more rocky tunes, such as Down
the Line, and a fun blues number
called Boogie Real Slow with the
Lights Way Down Home Blues.
Unfortunately the first half of the
show was plagued by sound trouble. The band took a break to fix

Sweden's number one industry
came to Vancouver Saturday night,
giving a sold-out Coliseum a spectacle more reminiscent of Ice
Capades than a major musical
event.
ABBA is emblematic of all that is
wrong with the state of rock and
roll today. They are cute and pure
to the point of being obnoxious.
They revel in the excesses of the
musical industry. Their obsession
with the financial end of the
business is complete to the point
that a song called Money Money is
included in their act.
Personally, I love them. If even
Donna Summer fans can't stand
them they must be doing
something right.

back for another half hour. The second half of the show was a mixture of cajun, such as I Live To
Have Fun on a Saturday Night, and
country songs like Take Me or
Leave Me, Just Think About Why
and  My Gal.
The band is fun on stage and
relates well to the audience. Band
members Jimmy Clyde Wilson,
Brady Gustafson, Leroy Stephens,
Ray O'Toole, Billy Cowsill and Gary
Comeau play the usual array of
country instruments and most of
them contribute on vocals, making
for impressive harmonies.
Most of the band's material lies in
the realm of country. It is unfortunate that the word country brings
to mind such names as Dolly Parton
and Johnny Cash. Blue Northern's
music is more along the lines of
such great talents as Waylon Jennings and Charlie Daniels.
It is a pleasure to see country
music at least occasionally, even if
not a fan. It is not contrived and
there are no overwhelming or oppressive significances. There was
no mention of cleath to the sickoids
or braineaters, which is a great
relief from most of the local music
scene. Blue Northern plays their
music just for the fun of it, and succeeds in transmitting their enjoy-'
ment to their audience.
The Wednesday noon-hour concert series, co-sponsored by the
Alma Mater Society, C-FOX radio
and Gary Taylor's Rock Room, will
continue Sept. 26 with the Powder
Blues Band. Other shows will
feature Highstreet, Molly Oliver, the
Wives and Bob Segarini.
kes Money, Money
Vous, title song from the new
aibum, signified that ABBA had indeed landed in their private jet and
were about to kickoff their first ever
Vancouver show. After dominating
musical sales in Europe, Australia
and even Russia, ABBA has embarked on their first tour of the
North American market.
Anni-Frid Lyngstad, Benny
Anderson, Bjorn Ulvaeus, and
Agnetha Faltskog (ABBA is derived
from their first initials) have sold
more records than any other group,
60 million in world wide sales.
Initial reaction was slow and tentative in coming. Voulez-Vous was
overly long and technically perfect,
reinforcing expectations of a computerized musical conglomerate. It
wasn't until the fourth song, Knowing Me Knqwing You, that the in
nocuous sexuality of Anni-Frid
broke the ice and ABBA took over
the crowd. From there on they were
in command with outstanding versions of Take a Chance, Chiquita,
S.O.S., It Had to Be You, and Does
Your Mother Know?
The crowd, as diverse as any to
fill the Coliseum, loved the show,
especially the sentimental I Have a
Dream when ABBA was joined by
25 local youngsters in an impromptu chorus.
There is no intensity or social
commitment to be found in ABBA's
music. Their only message is to enjoy life for the moment and live
music to its fullest. Such sentiments have always been the
message of pop music from the
days of the Surfaris to the Beach

Theatregoers
get Jitters
By WENDY HUNT
Jitters can't even raise goose
Dumps.
Heralded as a brilliant Canadian
comedy. Jitters is barren of
new ideas and does not present the
old ones in ah intelligent manner.
David French has filled his newest
play "with hackneyed jokes, Canadian .cliches and stereotypes instead
of characters.
Jitters
By David French
Until Oct. 13
At the Vancouver Playhouse
French is well known for two
previous dramas, Leaving Home
and.Of The Fields, Lately, that were
presented at the Playhouse in the
early seventies. In Jitters he has
turned his hand to comedy for the
first time. He tries to combine the
dramatic clash of eccentric personalities and the comedic frenzy of
life behind the proscenium arch.
Jitters is what everyone connected with a production comes
down with on opening night. The
harried director is trying to keep the
stars from each other's throat while
the playwright mother-hens his play
to the first curtain. As the tension
builds, the barbs fly fast and thick
until, like a clock gone crazy, the
whole thing flys apart. Unfortunately the explosion fizzles.
The worn one-liners garner few
laughs. The jokes cover a wide
range of mediocrity, from a high as
the playwright throws up his hands
and shouts, "Well, that's it for me.
I'm writing novels" to the mundane i
level of "It's exactly 7:55 . . . more
or less."
There is even an outdated "wife"
joke. After the director hears his
wife has tripped down the stairs
and broken her leg, he sighs with
relief "God, I thought you were going to tell me Feldman couldn't
make it." Feldman is the New York
producer who is going to whisk the
cast off to the wonderland of
Broadway.
The laughs pick up in the second
and third acts, no thanks to the witty repartee. The director, Roger
Hodgman, has added a great deal
of slapstick comedy.
And Heath Lamberts is a very
funny man. As Phil, he milks his
lines for all they are worth, adds a
colorful caricature and still appears
an easy, flowing presence on stage.
The voice of Donald Adams floats
over the PA system, lovingly dripping venom as the omnipresent
house manger.
French's observations about
Canadians are pedestrian and do
not reveal an understanding of the
Canadian psyche. Jess and Pat are
the two stars of the play within a
play and personify the Canadian
lack of confidence.
Jess has been to New York and
conquered it. But her last two plays
flopped and she has returned home
to lick her wounds. She feels she
can no longer cut it in the big time
and will not admit she is afraid to
try.
Pat too is afraid to put himself up
against New York and has satisfied
himself with remaining in Toronto,
a medium-size frog in a little pond.
How we Canadians eat our young!
"In the U.S. they embrace success;
here it's like stepping out of line."
We crave success, yet we are afraid
of reaching for it and failing and we
hate those of us who do get it.
French only mouths what has
been said for years without adding
any personal insights into either the
characters or the ideas.
French is so busy repeating old
jokes he never gets around to
writing lines which have any depth
of emotion and come from real people. The rivalry between Jess and
Pat is not built up to the point of
explosion. When Jess angrily walks
out on the production near the end
of the third act the climax is less.,
than climactic. The happy ending
smacks of Pollyannaism. The other
characters seem to have been included more for laughs than any
other purpose.
French, and to a lesser degree
Hodgman and the Playhouse cast,
neglect to recreate the incestuous
tension of nine people locked in a
pressure cooker. For better or for
worse they are stuck with each
other until the end of the run. From
such an intense experience a feeling
of camaraderie can result and inspire people to pull together.
Unable to distill the comedy from
the drama of tangled emotions,
French does not do justice to
either, settling for oneliners and
shallow characters. As Pat says,
"And speaking of laugh lines I wish
I had a few more in this friggin'
play."
Amen.
Rhapsody doesn't take cake
By KERRY REGIER
Kurt Vonnegut Jr.'s Happy Birthday Wanda June is no more complex than an anti-war poster on a
telephone pole. Rhapsody Productions, currently presenting Wanda
June, has failed to create a play
worth seeing.
While Vonnegut's novels are interesting and often successful, his
style is not suited to the stage. In a
novel Vonnegut has ample room to
create his meandering structures,
but in the limited medium of a live
performance, Vonnegut's ideas fail
to take concrete form.
The result is an assembly of
chaotic and merely symbolic
characters. As they say in the open
ing scene, this is a "simple-minded
play" about people who like to kill
and who don't.
Unfortunately there was little that
was new or different in Wanda
June or in Rhapsody's production
of it. The acting seemed wooden
and passionless and the play was
similar to a first reading of a high
school drama class.
The story is about a murderous
war hero who, thought to be long
dead, returns one day to find his
wife dating other men. When he arrives on the scene one of the boy
friends, a "peace freak," cdtSfnjnts
him and convinces him not to kill
everyone in sight. The play ends
with reconciliation; no one is hurt
and everyone agrees, after the
trauma, that peace is wonderful.
Rhapsody's development of the
theme tended to be superficial;
their interpretation of the ideas
lacked depth. The play came across
as a mindless comedy and the audience responded accordingly. As
the performance progressed the
theatre emptied out and the actors
seemed unperturbed.
It could be argued that the
"simple-minded" anti-war message
of the play received reasonable
treatment in the exaggerated one-
dimensional characters. But this
does not excuse boring an audience
into leaving; something this
reviewer has rarely seen happen.

THE    UBYSSEY
Friday, September 21, 1979 Open Door policy at Soft Rock
By INGRID MATSON
"How does it sound?" called out
Rick Scott.
"Good," yelled the audience.
"Good enough for a buck, eh,"
chuckled the lead player for the
Pied Pear as he went on to sing
"Canadian Goose" and do imitations of the same while the audience clapped along.
The event was the Open Door's
coffeehouse in the Soft Rock Cafe
where whistles, clapping in time,
and the occasional singalong
made for a relaxed atmosphere
Tuesday evening.
The Open Door is Vancouver's
newest and strongest voice for the
local music community. Essentially
it is a non-profit music society
which sponsors four weekly coffeehouses, and puts out a monthly
music magazine.
While the concept of a music
society for all types of local musicians has been kicking around for
about two years, the Open Door
only really took hold this past summer when it set up an office in the
basement of the Soft Rock Cafe.
From this base, which was set up
by volunteers, the society coordinates performers for its coffeehouses, writes and publishes its
magazine, and holds general
meetings for members of the Open
Door. Their, numbers have tripled in
the last three months.
The   society  was  founded   by
Kathy Thom and Craig Elder. They
are both local musicians who independently of each other, toyed
with the idea of creating a society
which would draw together Vancouver's music community. Eventually they came together, pooled
their resources and founded the
Open Door.
The Open Door fills a need which
has existed for some time, says
folksinger Denise Larsen.
"If the Open Door had existed
five years ago when I arrived in
Vancouver I would have been
thankful, but I also would have considered it normal. That sort of thing
was to be found in Washington,
D.C. and Virginia where I had spent
the previous six years. But it didn't
exist here — just a very powerful
need for such a place, an attitude or
society.
"During the late sixties and early
seventies there were many clubs in
Vancouver which catered to local
musicians, but over the past eight
years most of them have gradually
closed down. The Open Door
wants to fill that gap," says office
manager Paul S tog re. "We want to
enhance the development of Vancouver's music community by providing services and an open stage
for people at the grassroots level."
The main objective of the society
is to make performing space
available for all kinds of musicians,
says Stogre. "We are interested in
organizing musical spaces for all
styles of music: rock bands, folk
groups, classical."
The coffeehouses "provide musicians of all levels with a stage; a
place to be creative and to be appreciated for that creativity," said
Larsen. She was refering to an arrangement whereby an evening's
entertainment includes a warmup
band which receives a minimal fee,
a feature performer who commands
a larger sum, and an open stage
where musicians in the audience
have the opportunity to go up and
play.
The open stage is available after
the feature performer and usually
consists of a number of people who
have spoken to the M.C. and arranged for about fifteen minutes of
playing time.
Jazz, folk and classical are of
primary interest to the Open Door,
but they also bill some punk rock
and new wave bands and include
them in the list of upcoming concerts in their monthly magazine.
The magazine consists of interviews, song scripts, tips on how
not to get "ripped off" by those in
the commercial end of the industry,
and information including articles
on "What is a Music Studio?" "Performing Rights Organizations",
"Open Door News", and the like.
The Open Door is currently growing and they're asking for more

By JAMIE ANDREWS
Under the lamp on the little bedside table sat a
slowly-ticking clock and a standard-model
telephone whose color the phone company glowingly identified as "ivory". The clock showed a
quarter past twelve, and the date was just beginning to change. This showed that its owner had
neglected to wind it, as it was actually some time
later than that.
He walked calmly out of the bathroom, carrying a little bright-orange box with white lettering,
and a glass of cold water. Still holding them, he
sank heavily onto his bed. For several moments
he sat there, feeling the heat of the lamp on his
face, staring blankly at the telephone. Then as one
awakened from a trance he looked around the
room quickly, licking his lips. The box and glass
he placed beneath the lamp, and mechanically he
removed his bathrobe and threw back the covers
of his bed. Again he sat down by the little table,
this time a little longer, as if carefully thinking out
a strategy. Finally he picked up the little box with
slightly trembling fingers. As he removed a glass
jar from it, it fell to the carpet, the orange colour
flashing like a flame in the dark room. He
unscrewed the jar's cap and tried to transfer some
of its contents into his open palm, but instead a
cascade of little white pills poured from the lip of
the jar all over the table, skittering over its surface
and missing his hand entirely. He uttered an unar-
ticulated curse as he righted the jar and clapped
its cap back ori, a shudder passing through his
body.
Then the spilled pills, which had stopped their
dancing around the table, caught his eye. Serenity returned to his face; contemplating the arrangement beneath the lamp, he placed the jar in
a corner of the table and clasped his hands. How
pretty the white pills looked, resting on their
backs all around the phone, basking in the
lightbulb's warmth! How soft and soothing the
slow ticking of the clock was in the stillness of the
night! With a faint smile, he picked up the
telephone receiver and almost instantly heard the
dial tone reassuring him. He dialed a number confidently, as if it was familiar to him, pausing after
each digit to select a pill and pop it into his
The Lamplit Room
mouth. While waiting for the connection, he fed
himself three more and drank half the glass of
water. Soon the familiar sound of the ringing on
the other end, simulated by a tinny electrical
sound, began. It rang in harmony with the clock,
three times ... six times . . . ten times . . .
He rocked forward limply, as if a powerful wave
of weakness had hit him. Yet still he held on, the
trembling returning to his hands, his eyes widening .. .
*        *        *
Alone in the completely benighted room, she
lay in a deep, troubled sleep. She was buried inside the sheets, her soft head firmly nestled into
the pillow; her eyes darted back and forth
beneathher long lashes. She should have heard
the ringing of. the telephone immediately, a
danger signal to all humans of Western civilization. Yet the alarm only drove into the outermost
shell of her consciousness, struggling downward
to her thoughts. It was long moments later that it
took hold of her and started to bring her back
through the levels of sleep like a diver in quicksand.
Somewhere inside a circuit in the boot-shaped
building, a chip was counting methodically beside
a tiny red light that winked on and off. Twenty-
nine . . . Thirty . . . Thirty-one . . . Thirty-two.
With exactitude, it disconnected the circuit as if
graciously condescending to intervene in a
hopeless call.
With the abrupt silence of her phone, she snapped fully awake, staring blankly into the dark. She
searched her mind for the reason behind her
awakening, but already it was slipping away as
she returned to reality. She propped herself up on
her elbow, as if a muscular effort could help her
remember. She shook her head; it was gone.
Sighing slowly, she swung her legs out of the
bed, and turned on her lamp. The light stung her
eyes temporarily, but finally she got a look at her
clock: two o'clock, or a little bit after. She looked
around the room, vaguely realizing the absurdity
of the artificial sunlight she had introduced to the
night-darkness and night-stillness. Then she picked up the receiver of her phone and dialed a
number. She frowned suddenly as the nagging
busy signal echoed in her ear. Still peering into
the dark corners of her room, she hung up, cutting off the annoying sound. She ran her .fingers
through her hair as she did when getting up; yet
she yawned, still heavy with sleep. The mystery
of the late-night call passed out of her mind.
For a moment she sat looking at her bedside
table, and then shook her head negatively,
evidently deciding against something. Checking
the setting of her alarm clock, she finished a half-
empty glass of water that sat on the table, and
popped a little bottle of pills back into its bright
orange container. Then she turned off the light
and fell back asleep.
The water in the glass began to warm and turn
stale beneath the heat of the lamp. The clock
laboured in its ticking, faltered, and stopped. No
one noticed. From where the receiver of the
phone lay, on top of a little crushed box on the
carpet, the dial tone changed cleanly to the
urgent hangup signal, oblivious of the lack of
sound and life in the little, lamplit room.

THE    UBYSSEY
Page Friday 7 On Time
Time's increments steal the day
by fracturing its wholeness
into components too small to weigh;
and tucking those units in nothingness,
Time robs perception blind
leaving only a fragmented mind.
Thus trapped in Time's own bounds,
let us measure our soul's mass
as if tons were but an ounce
As if God were but Helium gas;
This is how it is, and how it must be,
for Time is Time's own Time for all eternity.

Autumn Ratings
I like the fall the best of all.
No slush to push, no snow to blow,
And heat puts not your mind in gall.
But most of all, all life is on for show
Before that final winter blast of frost

Before all trees their leaves have lost,
And fore the years memories are old.

The Myth, the Man
He came one night when we weren't looking
with a smoky black face and wild tangled eyes
He spoke Flemish to my mother and bit the cat
his orange scarf dragged along the kitchen floor
my father smoked his pipe in frustration
but I laughed and giggled and ate my strawberry
mousse
with abandon
it was the second coming  of Jesus Christ in
disguise
and the butler was the only one who knew,
but he'd be damned if he'd give it away
so the snow fell and the ice clacked against the
hearth and home
and we all watched him with wide white eyes
as he blessed the TV set and ate my sister's best
fudge
I should have told the public but I doubt if anyone
would
believe. What a laugh, Jesus right in our living
room
And then there was the time that Caesar came

of mystery before me
shyly she entered the room her hair tangled in the wind
she laughed a silver note and kissed the

he too could laugh at the wind and play the
game
he had nothing to lose and everything to
gain
the   summer   touched   the   smiling
children and the sun was their home
they roamed the earth and saw all of their
horizons in each other
and she danced in the rain and sang
to the dust of her past
"the search is over for I am you"
but her love was not true and it left
crunching an apple she looked into his eyes and
lost the silver note
he touched her hand and knew she was gone
and his eyes, his lovely gray eyes
vanished in the mist
the game was over and she and the wind
moved on.

Hodgins creates
Island miracle
By RICHARD NOBLE
A man resurrected from death
nearly two thousand years ago
might not seem odd, but what if someone suggests a similar event oc-
cured recently in a town on the
north end of Vancouver Island?
In his new book, The Resurrection of Joseph Bourne, Jack
Hodgins uses this unlikely premise
to create a readable, amusing, and
ultimately hopeful book.
The    Resurrection    of    Joseph
Bourne
By Jack Hodgins
MacMillan of Canada; $12.95
The novel is about the people of
Port Annie, an isolated mill town
sandwiched between a polluted inlet and a logged-out mountain
threatening to release an avalanche
of mud. Hodgins begins by painting
a bleak picture. They are people living on 'the edge of nothingness,'
caught in a hopeless cycle of rain
and work and gossip and drinking.
There is no sense of past or future,
only the futility of an endless, boring present.
But then something strange happens. Joseph Bourne, town eccentric and local radio talk show host,
dies while interviewing a beautiful
woman new to the town. His death
in itself is not strange, but two days
later he is reported to be alive.
The remainder of the novel is a
sometimes tragic, but more often
amusing account of how this
miracle affects the people of Port
Annie.
Bourne emerges from his resurrection a changed man. He is found
out to be a very famous poet with a
long and colorful history. With
seemingly endless energy, he sets
about helping everyone in whatever
way he can. Initially the townspeople react in typical fashion: some
are incredulous, some try to exploit
him as a celebrity, and some even
try to imitate him by attempting to
resurrect their own lives.
As the novel progresses, each of
these reactions flounders into emptiness, and we begin to wonder if
Bourne's resurrection has been in
vain. But at the end, when the entire town has been destroyed by a
mudslide, we realize what Joseph
Bourne has left them. He has left
the belief that they can help each
other and that they can prevail. He
has given them hope and a reason
for staying on.
If there is a major weakness in
this novel it is that Hodgins is attempting to portray a whole community. There are no characters
with which we become intimate.
Hodgins moves in and out of the
minds of a dozen characters, telling
amusing anecdotes and giving us
snatches of what they think, but
this is seldom enough to make them
come alive. Most often they seem
only caricatures: Jacob Weins the
stupid, progress-obsessed mayor,
Jenny Chambers the good-hearted
ex-stripper, or Larry Bowman the
sexually frustrated librarian. At
times it is difficult to care whether
their lives are affected by Bourne's
resurrection, as they hardly appear
to have lives at all.
But he achieves his portrayal of
the community through an ingenious and effective narrative
technique. The story is told in the
first person of almost every
character in the novel. Each
character  is  given  the  stage  for
short periods of time, which
enables us to comprehend a myriad
of reactions to Bourne's resurrection.
And although each reaction is
different, by the novel's end we see
that Joseph Bourne has awakened
something better in each of them,
and that this awakening will work
itself out in the community. As
Larry Bowman reflects, "Love and
perfect vision were the same, old
Bourne had said . . . But was he
capable of seeing clearly what
anyone else in this room might be?
Except human, like himself?
Neighbour somehow linked? People
who acknowledged, as he did, a
hunger in themselves for things
they didn't understand . . . like
forgotten dreams of childhood or
some flash of insight into a broader
life."
In   a   time   when   cynicism   is
fashionable, Hodgins has had the
audacity to write an optimistic
book. He has given us a funny yet
realistic world, and the comfortable
feeling that no matter what our
condition, there is hope we will
prevail. The inspiration for this
book is essentially Christian, but
there is no hint of dogmatism or call
to belief. It is simply an intelligent
and amusing account of a miracle,
and certainly worth reading.
Parent pictures
all that jazz
When the word "jazz" is mentioned, the music form immediately
comes to mind. But Bob Parent's
Golden Years of Jazz has nothing
to do with the music itself.
The 82 black and white
photographs in the exhibit depict
most of the world's great jazz musicians. Louis Armstrong, Billie Holli-
day, Charles Mingus, Duke Ellington, Jack Teagarden, Count
Basie, and Dizzy Gillespie are
among the many on display.
Golden Years of Jazz
Photo exhibit by Bob Parent
September 16-30
At the Western Front
With jazz music playing quietly in
the background, the photographs
seem to come to life, reviving
memories of the swing/be-bop era.
Many of the photographs show
the musicians at work in the studio
and on stage. Others are portraits,
formal and informal, giving some
insight into the performers' emotions     and      feelings.      The
photographs   of    Billie    Holliday's
funeral are particularly effective.
Some of the older prints, dating
back as far as 1946, are marred by
bubbles and dust specks while
others are poorly printed, poorly
mounted, or poorly matted. But
anyone interested in jazz and/or
photography should make a point
of seeing the exhibition.
The photographs on display are
part of over 700 performance portraits made by Parent. His work has
appeared on many record album
covers, including records by Duke
Ellington and Jack Teagarden.
Parent's photographs have also appeared in music magazines such as
Down Beat and Metronome and a
number of books on jazz music.
The exhibit is free of charge, and
will continue at the Western Front
until Sept. 30. Copies of Parent's
photographs are available to be purchased.

THE    UBYSSEY
Page Friday 9 Julius Schmid
would like to give you some straight talk
about condoms, rubbers, sheaths, safes,
French letters, storkstoppers.
All of the above are other names for
prophylactics. One of the oldest and most
effective means of birth control known
and the most popular form used by males.
Apart from birth control, use of the
prophylactic is the only method
officially recognized
and accepted as an aid
in the prevention
of transmission of    AWmitci
venereal disease.
Skin
Prophylactics.
Skin prophylactics
made from the membranes of lambs were
introduced in England as early
as the eighteenth century. Colloquially known
as "armour"; used by Cassanova, and mentioned in classic literature by James Boswell
in his "London Journal" (where we read of his
misfortune from not using one), they continue to
be used and increase in popularity
to this very day.
Because they
are made from natural
membranes, "skins"
are just about the best
conductors of body
warmth money can
buy and therefore
their effect on sensation and feeling is almost
insignificant.
Rubber Prophylactics
The development of
the latex rubber
process in the twentieth
century made it possible to produce strong
rubber prophylactics
of exquisite thinness,
with an elastic ring at
the open end to keep
the prophylactic
from slipping off
the erect penis. Now these
latex rubber prophylactics
are available in a variety
of shapes and      dJSjs.
colours, either plain-ended, or
tipped with a "teat" or "reservoir
end" to receive and hold
ejaculated semen.
Lubrication
And thanks to modern
chemistry, several new non-    i
reactive lubricants have been 6
developed so that prophylactics are available
in either non-lubricated or lubricated forms.
The lubricated form is generally regarded as
providing improved sensitivity, as is, incidentally, the NuFonrf Sensi-Shape. For your
added convenience, all prophylactics are
pre-rolled and ready-to-use.
Some Helpful Hints
The effectiveness of a prophylactic,
whether for birth control or to help prevent
venereal disease, is dependent in large
measure upon the way in
which it is used and disposed
of. Here are a few simple
suggestions that you may
find helpful.
Packaging
First of all,
there's the matter
of packaging.
Skin prophylactics are now packaged premoistened in sealed
aluminum foil pouches to keep them
fresh, dependable and ready for
use. Latex rubber prophylactics are
usually packaged in sealed ^
plasticized paper pouches or      ^j^
aluminum foil. ^0
All of these prophylactics, at Wlf/tL
least those marketed by reputable
firms, are tested electronically
and by other methods to make
sure they are free of defects.
Prophylactics are handled very
carefully during the packaging
operation to make sure they are
not damaged in any way.

Sensi-Shape Ribbed
Storage and Handling
It is equally important that you store and
handle them carefully after you buy them,
if you expect best results and dependability.
For example, don't cany them around in
your wallet in your back pocket and sit on them
from time to time. This can damage them
and make them worthless. Next is the matter
of opening the package. It's best to tear the
paper or foil along one edge so that the simple
act of tearing doesn't cause a pinhole. And
of course, one should be particularly careful of
sharp fingernails whenever handling the
prophylactic.
Putting Them On
The condom, or prophylactic, should be put
on before there is any contact between the
penis and the vaginal area. This is important,
as it is possible for small amounts of semen
to escape from the penis even before orgasm.
Unroll the prophylactic gently onto the
erect penis, leaving about a half of an inch projecting beyond the tip of the penis to receive
the male fluid (semen). This is more easily
judged with those prophylactics that have a
reservoir end. The space left at the end or
the reservoir, should be squeezed while unrolling, so that air is not trapped in the closed end.
As mentioned earlier, you may wish to
apply a suitable lubricant either to the vaginal
entrance or to the outside surface of the
prophylactic, or both, to make entry easier and
to lessen any risk of the prophylactic tearing.
IkkingThem Off
When sexual relations are
completed, withdraw the penis while
the erection is still present, holding the rim of the prophylactic until
withdrawal is complete, so as to
stop any escape of semen from the
prophylactic as well as to stop it
from slipping off. Remove the prophylactic and, as an added precaution, use
soap and water to wash the hands, penis and
surrounding area and also the vaginal area
to help destroy any traces of sperm or germs.
And now for a commercial.
As you've read this far you're probably
asking yourself who makes the most popular
brands of prophylactics in Canada?
The answer to that is Julius Schmid. And
we'd like to take this opportunity to introduce
you to six of the best brands of prophylactics
that money can buy. They're all made by
Julius Schmid. They're all electronically tested
to assure dependability and quality. And you
can only buy them in drug stores.
KAlVOfco Regular (Non-Lubricated)
& Sensitol (Lubricated). A tissue thin rubber
sheath of amazing strength. Smooth as silk, light as
gossamer, almost imperceptible in use. Rolled,
ready-to-use.
FOUREX
"Non-Slip" Skins-distinctly
different from rubber, these natural membranes from
the lamb are specially processed to retain their
fine natural texture, softness and durability. Lubricated and rolled for added convenience.
JI    I Lllv Sensi-Shape (Lubricated)
& Regular (Non-Lubricated). The popular priced,
high quality reservoir end rubber prophylactic.
Rolled, ready-to-use.

THE    UBYSSEY
Friday, September 21, 1979 Plath's Belljar
pierced in film
By BETSY PROBYN
The Belljar is sad. Sylvia Plath's
book is tragic but the film is just a
sad performance.
The film opens along the lines of
a typical 1950s tearjerker. We have
the golden American girl in the
usual scenes. Classic lines appear
with all the classic replies.
The Belljar
Directed by Larry Peerse
Starring Marilyn Hasset
At the Dunbar Theatre
Esther Greenwood, the straight-
A student with the ultra-white
smile, is confronted by her brilliant
boyfriend. He asks her if she has
ever seen a nude male and then
promptly strips. She is forced to do
the same, which supposedly triggers her insanity. His sighs of
"Jesus, you're beautiful' mingle
with her screams; the inane and the
insane.
But she manages to recover and
lands a summer job with a fashion
magazine in New York. There she is
wined, dined and once again nearly
raped. This, combined with her
nasty lesbian boss, sends her into a
nervous breakdown.
At this point the film lurches
away from "Gidget in N.Y." and
becomes "Gidget Gone Mad". In
the remaining hour a bedraggled
Esther screams her way to sanity in
an ivy-league nut house.
The Belljar could have been
good. It tries to approach the
essential tragedy that Plath
describes so well. But it fails to
catch the image of the golden exterior that cracks under social
pressures to spill the black guts of
Esther's insanity.
Marilyn Hasset fails to portray the
contorted    despair    of    someone
caught in the belljar of the insane.
Faced with this difficult task, direc-

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 as-visiting professors will give a new insight on the connection between their two realms.

EPi 100 only
$9995
The EPl 100 has become the industry standard for bookshelf loudspeakers. Leading consumer and
audiophile publications have consistently given the EPl 100 their top ratings. It does everything you
want a loudspeaker to do, and it does it all in a compact cabinet!
The EPl 100 offers EPI's celebrated Linear Sound: a pure, uncoloured, natural sound from top to
bottom. With no artificial boosting of the bass to impress the innocent. And all the nuances at the
treble end that, on most speakers, just fade away.
The Model 100 doesn't just deliver the Linear Sound of EPl straight ahead, either. In fapt, up to
15,000 Hz, the speaker's off-axis dispersion is down an average of only 3dt.
And, unlike nearly every other speaker, you can listen for hours to the EPl 100 without suffering
listening fatigue. The reason is EPI's "minimum distortion" — both harmonic and intermodulation.
With its excellent dispersion and EPI's Linear Sound, we'd say the EPl 100 is clearly the finest
speaker you can get for the money.

So much for so little at the heart of this fine system
is the powerful Marantz 1530 AM/FM stereo
receiver. With 30 watts RMS per channel and super
low distortion of only .08%, the 1530 will give you
accurate, trouble free performance from all sources.
The Marantz 6025 is an easy to operate belt driven
turntable with a newly designed tonearm that
reduces tracking distortion by 30%. The 6025 has
automatic return and shutoff and is complete with a
Shure M70B magnetic cartridge. Accuracy and unparalleled sound quality have made the EPl 100's the
most highly reviewed and rated loudspeaker in the
industry. The 8" woofer reporduces full tight base
with low distortion and the 1" air spring tweeter
reproduces exhilarating highs with excellent dispersion. Come into A &• B Sound and hear how much
$699.95 will buy.
