Array Students hit
college cuts
ByMARCUSGEE
Students at B.C.'s established
community colleges have united to
denounce education minister
Eileen Dailly's decision to limit
college budget increases to 15 per
cent.
Representatives of five B.C.
community colleges and the B.C.
Students Federation will meet with
Dailly Friday to ask her to
radically change the government's
college policy.
But in an interview Monday
Dailly firmly defended her budget
ceiling and said she has no intention of changing community
college policy.
She said: "I think students are
jumping the gun. The college
budgets are not set yet."
Dailly added the standard of
education in community colleges
will not drop due to the restrictions.
And she said the budget ceiling
will not restrict the number of
students enrolling in the community college system.
"Students should not suffer —
the purpose of the guidelines was to
put students first," she said.
"This government's guidelines
put the emphasis on student access. We want as many students as
possible to be able to go to community colleges."
Dailly said the budget restrictions may mean some faculty will
be cut from community colleges so
enrolment does not have to be
curtailed.
She also said the education
department will cut back administrative costs before it
restricts community college
enrolment.
"I am not saying huge classes
are desirable but some classes are
inordinately small. Students have
to be enrolled even if ratios have to
be higher."
But Dailly said she could not
guarantee students will not be
turned away from community
colleges next year.
BCSF executive member Glenn
MacKenzie said Monday the
student leaders will ask Dailly to
lift the 15 per cent budget increase
ceiling, freeze college tuition fees
and take over 100 per cent of
college financing.
"This is just the beginning of
protest," he said.
MacKenzie said Dailly's budget
restrictions threatens the accessibility and autonomy of B.C.
colleges.
Colleges will have to turn down
many applicants next year
because of the restrictions, he
added.
"The  (budget)  ceiling directly
threatens the accessibility of
education."
Barbara Smith, Capilano college
student union vice-president, said
Monday the college turned about
1,000 students away this year
because of budget restrictions.
Smith said the restrictions will
lower the quality of education at
Capilano college, saying the
college will have to cut as many as
20part-time faculty and between 18
and 30 course sections due to the
budget ceiling.
Smith said the college is already
understaffed and existing faculty
and staff are overworked.
Vancouver Community College
students will also suffer from the
budget restrictions according to
student society vice-president
Gordon Bell.
"This will make our budget
totally inadequate to operate on the
status quo," Bell said in an interview Monday.
VCC will have to cut 60 course
sections as a result of the
restrictions, he said.
When Dailly announced the
budget ceiling Friday she said no
college courses will be cut without
her prior approval.
But Bell says this will not protect
students from the detrimental
effects of the restrictions.
Dailly may be reserving -the
right to approve the cutting of
courses to centralize" power "in the
education department, he said.
But Dailly said Monday the
community colleges are still
autonomous although she controls
the size of their government
grants.
Community colleges now receive
60 per cent funding from the
provincial government and 40 per
cent from municipal governments.
The recent establishment of four
new colleges by the education
department is "very definitely" a
factor in restricted budgets for the
established colleges, Bell said.
But Dailly said the new colleges
are essential to the education
department's policy of accessibility to education.
"Why should certain areas be
denied access to a community
college because of high cost in
existing community colleges?" she
asked.
Students at Capilano College,
VCC, and Vancouver Vocational
Institute are striking today to
protest the budget restrictions and
"contradictions in the NDP
education policy."
The students will begin a march
at 1 p.m. from Capilano College in
North Vancouver to VCC administration headquarters at
Granville and Hastings.
Election in 37 days
By RALPH MAURER
Jti 37 days B.C. voters go to the polls to either Hrject 0r endorse the NDP
government's three-year rule.
Premier Dave Barrett, in calling the Dec. ll election, made it clear
Monday tbe NDP would run on its record, particularry the party's recent
oaek-to-work legislation and price freeze. ^
"I am determined to help make the fight against inflation work,'* he
said during the press conference in which he announced the snap election.
He said he could not go ahead with his economic policies without the
support of the people.
In a television interview, Barrett said the election was called
because "an unforeseen event," the federal government's wage controls,
had occurred.
"Many people areepncerned with the gaps (in the federal program)
and we needed to ask if they agree with the moves we've made,'' Barrett
told the television audience.
He said the NDP had intended to wait at least until the government's
boundaries commission redistributed seats in the B.C. legislature, but
felt compelled to call the election now because of the federal measures.
He denied the election was called so shortly before redistribution
because the party feared it would lose seats.
"Redistribution would obviously help ray party," Barrett said, adding
the NDP would probably gain new seats that would be created in such
ragj&-growth, areas as Coquitlam. the Fraser Valley, currently

DISMANTLING SUB prior to its relocation in sunny Greece, workers Monday knock out bricks in second
floor wall. Actually, building had merely decided to shift slightly on its foundations and nasty little cracks
were being repaired to maintain delightful cosmetic appearance of structure.
What has Eileen Dailly done ?
This is the first of a two-part
interview with education minister
Eileen Dailly about her department's performance in the last
three years and how it relates to
the NDP's 'good government'
election theme. Part two, appearing in Thursday's Ubyssey,
will discuss community colleges,
public schools and the overall
philosophy of trying to change
education in a society which holds
so many different opinions on the
subject.
By GARY COULL
What has happened to education
in B.C. since Eileen Dailly, the
KTEJVHrom Burnaby North, took
over her cabinet post in 1972?
Considering     the     state     dfTiHliiBUr began
theme of taking his "good
government to the people" The
Ubyssey decided Monday to ask
Dailly the same question.
How, in her three years as
minister, does she think the NDP
has given the people good government in education?
In the next 45 minutes of a
telephone interview from her
Victoria office, the minister listed
off an impressive number of accomplishments which she plans to
sell to the voters during the NDP's
first defence of its throne.
"Actually, as far as I'm concerned I'm pleased with our
performance over this period and
the election campaign provides us
with an opportunity to tell the
people what we've been doing," the
education at the time of the
Socreds' demise, it wouldn't be too
hard to improve on their performance.
In August, 1972, B.C.'s education
system stank.
Since that time the education
minister has been accused of being
incompetent, fully competent, too
radical, not radical enough and
just about innocuous enough for the
NDP government's wishes.
At one extreme, former B.C.
Teacher's Federation president
Jim MacFarlane tore up his NDP
membership card in frustration at
the lack of concrete action by the
education department.
Picking up on premier Dave
Barrett's   self-professed   election
Dailly, who plans to seek reelection, spoke of three specific
areas in B.C. education —
universities, community colleges
and the public schools — and
elaborated on what she believes
the NDP government has done.
"If you look at all the changes
we've made you'll see we have
followed a definite education
policy."
In the university sector, Dailly
pointed to the new Universities Act
which changed the political face of
the universities.
The new act, hastily introduced
in the summer of 1974, reorganized
the board of governors and
provided for the first time student
representation at the board level.
The minister sees the new act as
a "major change," a view not
wholeheartedly shared by some
members of the university community who had hoped for a m6re
fundamental reorganization.
Instead, numbers were shifted
and while many of the faces
changed you had the feeling the
status quo remained behind.
Another area of post-secondary
education Dailly pointed to during
the interview was the establishment of the universities council
headed by William Armstrong.
She said "most approve of the
council's concept."
While the idea of a liaison between the government and B.C.'s
three universities is probably a
good idea, The Ubyssey revealed
last week an apparent lack of
talent among some council
members and a general mood of
secrecy under which the body
operates.
The minister noted that student
aid to post-secondary students had
increased from $2 million (based
on good marks) when the NDP took
over, to almost $12 million today
(based on need.)
While there has been some
complaint about the new loan
guidelines (discriminatory to
students who can't get jobs or to
women who traditionally earn
lower wages) the government has
clearly made an effort to increase
university accessibility.
Dailly said she doesn't believe

U of M students winning
McGILL DAILY
Special to The Ubyssey
Striking University pf Montreal
students won a partial victory
Monday when it was announced the
arts dean would grant $6,000
needed to put a sociology pilot
project into operation.
The pilot project would replace
the current curriculum with a
'more relevant' course of study.
The students are expected to
abandon their demand for full
accessibility to the program and
agree to limit admission to third
year students.
Social science students have
arranged for an off-campus
meeting today to decide on a final
course of action.
Students in the social sciences
were striking in support of the U of
M sociology students who have
boycotted classes since Sept. 20 in
order to proceed with an alternative curriculum which involves
the study of community issues,
workers' struggles and "more
relevant subjects."
At a  meeting Friday students
said if the arts dean granted the
$6,000 needed to launch the pilot
project, the students were
prepared to concede on other
points and end their strike.
It was leaked to the students iiy
the middle of the general meeting
that negotiations between the dean j
and students had ended and the j
dean had absolutely refused to ,
make any concessions whatsoever. '
The students voted overwhelmingly to continue their
walkout despite the threat of an '
injunction. They also resolved to
send a telegram to arts dean Rene
Levesque demanding his
resignation and promising further
radical measures.
Levesque's threats against the
sociology students — first to annul
their term and then to obtain an
injunction against them —
prompted the social science
students to join the protests
against the administration.
The students have occupied the
arts and sciences building since
Wednesday and have set up picket
lines outside.
Luc Lapierre, chairman of the
students' general assembly,
said Friday other social
science students are voicing their
support for the sociology students
but are not making any demands
themselves.
The reflection of general student
aims is evident however, and "the
administration is afraid to set a
precedent," he said.
It is clear that demands for
reforms in the other departments
may   well   be   forthcoming,   ac-.
cording to strike leaders.

Barrett didn't miss the opportunity to take shots at the
"negative, bitter" opposition
presented by the Social Credit and
other opposition parties.
He said opposition party

they want to present that as their
position that's their responsibility."
"We feel it's best to go to the

Nuclear progress praised
The day of nuclear reactors
which produce as much fuel as
they use is getting close, and
Canadians are leading the way,
one of Canada's leading nuclear
scientists said Monday.
Sanjoy Banerjii, head of the
reactor analysis branch of the
Whiteshell Nuclear Establishment
in Manitoba, said the Canadian
CANDU reactor is easily adaptable
to become a thorium breeder
reactor, which makes use of
recycled nuclear fuel.
Banerjii, in a semi-technical
lecture to UBC engineering
students and an interview afterward with reporters, also noted
that:
• politicians must decide if they
want to build the new and expensive reactors across Canada;
• the CANDU system is an
inefficient way to make nuclear
bombs but "in the end I think you
have to have confidence in the
country you're selling it to;
• scientists are currently
working on tests to eliminate what
he called unnecessarily conservative safeguards from reactors;
• and nuclear waste will be
stored in salt or granite formations or in enclosed tanks in
closed installations.
Banerjii said conventional
nuclear reactors produce
plutonium and an assortment of
other useless wastes.
In future reactors waste
plutonium from conventional
reactors will be mixed with
thorium (about three times as
abundant as uranium) to produce
extra energy, and the fuel can be
further reprocessed to produce
even more power, he said.
The catch, Banerjii noted, is that
thorium reactors are much more
expensive to build than conventional   uranium   installations.
Thorium can't just be dumped in
the reactor and burned — it needs
to be mixed with the plutonium
from a conventional plant before
energy can be produced.
So extra processing elements are
needed to make the thorium
reactor work, he said.
But Banerjii said the CANDU
reactor — which basically is an
enclosed tubular coil structure
using heavy water to produce
steam and ultimately power — will
be easy to adapt to accommodate
thorium and plutonium.
Banerjii showed diagrams based
on the assumption breeder reactors would be in extensive use by
1995, but emphasized he was
working with postulates not
predictions.
"We make observations on
options and politicians choose the
ones they want," he said, noting
government officials will have to
decide when and where to phase
the new reactors into operation.
But he said uranium prices will
rise, above the current $40 to $75
per kilogram level, to justify increased capital costs to build
.thorium reactors, and save fuel as
a result.
In an interview afterward,
though, Banerjii indicated the new
reactors would much more likely
be built in eastern Canada than
B.C. (The Barrett government has
said it plans to meet future power
needs through coal, rather than
nuclear energy.)
Banerjii described current work
in Manitoba, where scientists are
testing various parts of the nuclear
power plant system to see what
would happen if breaks or leaks
occur.
The idea, he said, is to find where
unnecessarily conservative
safeguards are being applied
which reduce power plant efficiency.
He said "billions of dollars"
could be saved by redesigning
power plants and, as an example,
said the Pickering installation in
Ontario could produce 60 per cent
more power if the power plant
design was improved.
He said leaks are virtually impossible in the current system and
would remain so with
modifications. "You need a cosmic
guillotine to cut through seven
inches of steel," he said.
Banerji said disposal of nuclear
waste from current and future
installations poses few serious
problems.
He said the wastes can be diffused in low concentration in
geological granite or salt formations, or stored safely (for a
UBC kung fu instructor
to be Hollywood star?
By LEN MafcKAVE
A kung fu instructor from a
UBC club has been chosen to play
the lead role in a Hollywood recreation of the life of film star
Bruce Lee.
Alex Kwok, who instructed the
UBC My Jong kung fu club, said in
a telephone interview from
Hollywood that he is pleased with
his starring role.
Kwok performed at the International karate tournament in
Los Angeles, and he said that is
where he was noticed by the
motion picture people.
"I was down for a tournament in
August, as I have been touring the
country, giving demonstrations
and competing in tournaments,"
he said.
"They took some pictures while I
was competing, and while I was in
New York later in the week, they
phoned me to say they (the studio)
were pleased with, the shots, and
could I come to L.A. for a screen
test," Kwok said.
"I had a screen test on Sept. 11,"
said Kwok, "and I was surprised
how relaxed I felt in front of the
camera.
Kwok gave a demonstration at
UBC the next day, then was subsequently contacted by Warner
Brothers and First Artists to
negotiate a contract.
"This was done in a telephone
conversation with them while I was
in Vancouver, so here I am now,"
he said.
Bob Clouse, writer, producer and
director of the film said in a
telephone interview from
Hollywood Thursday, Kwok has
been chosen for the role, but
"we've   changed   his   name   to
"Kwon" because of the sound of
it." "Kwon is more appealing to
the western ear" he said.
Clouse said "Alex is just about
the same age as Bruce Lee was,
and his life story and background
are basically the same, except that
when Lee returned to the States,
Kwok instead came to Vancouver."
"Alex's parents still live in Hong
Kong" he added.
"The public is still in the dark
about this picture" said Clouse.
"They're relatively unaware
because information has not yet
been released. We're still waiting
for the green light from Warner
Bros, and First Artists."
Clouse, who directed Bruce Lee
in his box-office smash, Enter The
Dragon, said the "all clear signal"
should be received soon.
Clouse described the movie,
currently titled "Bruce Lee — his
life and legend" as a definitive
story about the great nartial artist.
"The movie opens with scenes
being shot in Hong Kong" Clouse
said. "Then we will move on to San
Francisco, and work on the
beginnings of Lee's life."
Clouse said San Francisco will be
the "second" scene of the film,
"that is, until we go back to Hong
Kong where we will depict Lee's
story when he was about 18."
"A good deal of the film is shot
here (Hong Kong), then we will go
back to the U.S.A., and Seattle, San
Francisco, and finally L.A. will be
the locations for the rest of the
movie," Clouse said.
Clouse said this is an entirely
new cast, and will feature no other
martial artists with which the
public is familiar.
shorter term) as fuel bundles in
installations of enclosed water-
circulating tubs.
Banerjii discounted the concern
that Canadian nuclear reactors
sold to foreign countries could be
used to make atomic bombs.
"There are much cheaper ways
of manufacturing plutonium," he
said.
"It (the CANDU system) is a
very expensive way to make a
bomb," he said. Capital costs for
building the easiest part of the
reactor system would be between
$600 million and one billion dollars,
he added.
Banerjii said bombs could be
more easily made by gathering
carbon, natural uranium and
making a "gas-graphite pile."
He said if a nation really wanted
to build a bomb, it could do so
without Canadian assistance.
TURNING LEAD INTO GOLD isn't all that hard . . . after all I turned my degree into a job, says chem prof
D. H. Dolphin at lecture Monday. Dolphin donned his wizard costume for his "Magic Chemistry Show"
because he figured he didn't get enough mileage out of garb at Hallowe'en.
Complete control rejected
From   page   1
the   government   should   heavy-
handedly try to control the internal
operation of the university.
"I don't think at any time
complete control by the government of the university is good. The
university is a democratic society
and should be allowed to maintain
its independence."
The minister said the basic
change in the philosophical
structure should rest with the
university, but at the same time
the government can "encourage
innovation."
She cited as an example of how
this government approach can
effect change in the university, the
NDP giving UBC $4 million to start
an academic program for senior
citizens.
"But you have to draw the line
before direct control. . . think very
carefully what would happen if the
government interfered in the
direct operation of the university."
Dailly said she has urged in her
speeches that students and faculty
get involved in university decisionmaking at the grass roots level.'
However, she admitted that just
changing the regulations, the
Universities Act and the board of
governors' 'won't change the whole
philosophy."
She believes this must be done
within the university, hopefully by
the university community and at
the grass roots level.
It was pointed out to the minister
that some areas of university such
as faculty promotion, tenure and
hiring and firing committees, are
not accessible to the campus
community.
"There is nothing, nothing at all
which stops the individual
universities from putting students
on these committees. It's
something every institution has the
right to do."
By way of illustrating her belief
that change should come within the
universities, she said student and
community input on these committees "should be allowed to
develop at all universities."
Dailly said that if the "majority
of citizens" reflect the view that
students and others should sit on
such faculty committees, but this
did not come about, "then perhaps
government intervention might be
necessary."
Student representation on these
committees, however, is necessary
in the minds of many campus
politicians simply because who
knows better how profs teach than
students.
The older, more firmly entrenched members of any campus
community are the ones who resist
such interference in their 'personal
affairs.'
Yet good professors have been
denied tenures and promotions at
UBC . (and. probably most
universities) without anyone
knowing about it. Some people
question the need to wait for
change in this area.

TV violence assaulted
By CHRIS GAINOR
Television violence contributes
to violence in society because it
makes people more aggressive, a
Stanford University psychology
professor said here Saturday.
Albert Bandura said people
become aggressive by watching
other people in violent acts, not
because they are frustrated.
Speaking to an overflow crowd at
the Vancouver Institute, Bandura
said "human aggression is now a
growing social problem."
Several recent studies have
proved that television violence
makes viewers more aggressive,
he said.
One study revealed four out of
five children who watched violent
television shows became more
aggressive themselves than
children not exposed to the
violence, Bandura said.
Besides television, children can
become conditioned to be
aggressive through their families,
friends and acquaintances, he said.
Bandura said when violence is
regarded as a good quality in'a
society, the society will be violent.
"Obedience aggression requires
certain social conditions and not
monstrous people," he added.
When asked how people can stop
television violence, Bandura, who
has testified before U.S.
congressional committees, said it
is fruitless to wait for politicians or
television networks to act.

Lift
ceiling
Dailly
Eileen Dailly is either hypocritical or naive.
We suspect the latter.
Since Dailly became education minister three years ago
she has publicly flogged two central policies: universal
accessibility to education and decentralization.
She chose the community college as a vehicle for these
policies.
Sounds great, eh?
Let everyone in the province get educated. Let them go
choose between universities and small autonomous colleges.
But good old Queen Eileen forgot one trivial ingredient:
money.
By restricting community college budget increases to 15
per cent Dailly strangles the system she claims to support.
Dailly has squeezed budgets at a time when inflation has
already endangered the quality of education in the colleges.
Courses have been cut and 2,000 students have been
turned away from colleges in the Vancouver area alone.
The 15 per cent ceiling is the final blow.
B.C. colleges are now doomed to be understaffed,
under-equipped and stagnant.
Dailly wants everyone who wants to get into the college
system to get into it.
Yet she says it is alright if students have to learn in large
classes. For example, 35 students to one Instructor at
Capilano College.
It's alright if some courses have to be cut. Fine if a few
faculty have to be fired. That's what our education minister
says.
And in the same breath she says the budget restrictions
will not hurt students.
Come on Mrs. Dailly, who are you trying to kid?
Students come first, the minister says blithely.
Then why must they suffer a drop in the quality of their
education because of the excesses of community college
administrators.
College administrators in B.C. have exorbitant salaries far
above their peers in other parts of the country.
Dailly should start trimming the fat where it is obvious:
on the paunches of the people at the top.
She claimed she wants to do just that; curtail
administrative costs.
No doubt Dailly has taken steps to trim many frills from
college budgets. Taxpayers should not pay to send instructors
on sabbaticals and to conferences.
Cutting these excesses to help fight inflation and
escalating government spending is admirable. It should be
done in every government department.
If the colleges get the axe, so should the universities,
whose influence and powers of persuasion are much greater.
But it is not at all necessary to lower educational quality
to save money. Nor to subject students to crowded classes
and a narrow choice of courses.
If the minister had been more discriminating in deciding
where she would cut budgets she would have avoided the
wrath of community college faculty and students.
She would also have ensured the viability of her adopted
child; the community college system.
Lift the budget ceiling Mrs. Dailly; it's time to go back to
the drawing board and start again.

McClurg
replies
May I be allowed to correct two
inaccuracies contained in your
Oct. 31 issue under the title "U
Council operating in secretive
way?"
Number one— "But according to
maverick councillor Betty McClurg, seven other councillors
commonly vote in a block with
Fraser." When contacted for a
telephone interview by your
reporter Mark Buckshon, I told
him that Rita McDonald and I
quite often moved and seconded
each other's motions and in many
cases did not receive the support of
other council members.
This was in answer to a question
with respect to "block" voting on
council. I told Buckshon that the
only "block patterns" that had
seemed to have developed on
council was made up of Rita McDonald and myself because of our
similar educational philosophies. I
am sorry the reporter assumed
that meant the other councillors
voted as a block. That is certainly
not the case.
Number two — "She (McClurg)
says this attitude is shared by the
rest of the council members." I
told Buckshon I believed our
priorities were wrong, that the
larger proportion of educational
funds should be going to the public
school system and in my opinion
universities received too large a
share of the educational dollar.
I was quoted correctly then, but
when Buckshon asked me if the
councillors supported me on this
question, I distinctly recall saving,
"Oh no!" In truth I have no idea
what the other councillors think on
this issue.
In conclusion may I say that it
was rather disappointing to see a
young, bright student newspaper
reporter comment on council
members' talent and background.
His remarks sounded strangely
similar to the rumored comments
of one university administrator
that council members "certainly
didn't know much about universities." Rather arrogant and
elitist, in fact.
Betty McClurg
universities council member
Your first point is close to what I
said in the article. Fraser and
seven other members voted in a
block against your motions.
I'm concerned about your second
point, for it seems strange that
after one year on council you have
"no idea" about whether other
councillors share your view that
universities get too large a share of
the educational dollar. Surely you
must have talked with them about
that issue. But if that point was
misinterpreted, I stand corrected.
As for your concluding point, it is
the duty of a good reporter doing a
critical article on the council to
comment not only on the group's
actions as a whole, but also on the
individuals who, working together,
steer the council in one direction or
another.
You can't separate the people
from the council. What's "rather
disappointing" about trying to get
at the truth which is hidden away
behind closed doors?—M.B.
Arguable
In reference to the article
printed in The Ubyssey Oct. 24
under the heading 'Entrance
exams criticized' I feel that some
of student services director Alex
Shirran's points are quite
arguable.
Quoting The Ubyssey: "Shirran
said it would probably cost $75,000
to administer the test." It would
seem that Shirran has failed to
consider the fact that it costs
$200,000 to $300,000 a year to administer the basic workshop
program, a program which, if the
entrance exam were enforced,
should be dropped.
Again quoting The Ubyssey, we
understand that "... faculty
members have complained of
falling standards in high school
instruction." Shirran's reply is: "I
would like to see their statistics."
I suggest to you, Shirran, that
you do look at their statistics. In
doing so you will find that those
who failed the diagnostic essay this
year had an average mark in their
last English course of around C to
C+ and many of whom had Bs and
even some As.
Surely therefore, any high school
giving such high grades to a
student who cannot pass the
diagnostic essay indicates the
"falling standards in high school
instruction."
In conclusion to this letter I
would like to see The Ubyssey staff
conduct their interviews with a
more argumentative attitude.

PERRAULT, ADVISOR.    ... "remember, Ray, some of these people can vote '
While defending Liberal policies
Perrault attacks labor
ByMARCUSGEE
Liberal senator Ray Perrault
Friday bitterly attacked Canadian
trade union leaders for opposing
the federal government's wage and
price controls.
The senate Liberal leader told
300 people in the Angus building
labor leaders called for government economic leadership before
the controls were announced, but
now refuse to comply with the
controls.
"The same people who oppose
(the wage and price control)
program were the ones who called
for action," he said.
• The Canadian Labor Congress
should bring constructive
suggestions for changes in the
recently announced "attack on
inflation" to the anti-inflation
review board headed by Jean Luc
Pepin, Perrault said.
The congress announced last
week it will spend $500,000 to fight
the government's anti-inflation
bill. The CLC said the bill cannot be
improved by amendment but must
be revoked.
"Labor has yet to provide constructive suggestions," Perrault
said.
However, Perrault, a former
leader of the B.C. Liberal party,
said it is unfair to blame organized
labor for Canada's high inflation
rate.
"There is a dangerous anti-labor
feeling in the country," he said.
Perrault said this feeling might
be erased if trade union leaders use
"restraint" in their wage
demands.
Restraint by all groups is
necessary to "break the
psychological chain of expectation" which results in higher
wage demands and higher prices,
he said.
But questioners strongly attacked the government's own lack
of budgetary restraint in a question
period after Perrault's speech.
Perrault defended federal MP's
recent salary hike against the
charges of one questioner who said
parliament set a bad example by
raising its own wages at the same
time it was recommending
restraint to the general public.
Many MPs are living "on the
edge of bankruptcy," Perrault
claimed.
Perrault said the government is
cutting back its spending in some
areas, but will not cut back social
welfare programs, where most
government money is spent.
The government will cut back
spending in the civil service and
for MPs, he added.
"Members of parliament will not
receive new cars this year,
Perrault said. This statement drew
an audible "ahhhh" of mock
sympathy from the audience.
Perrault insisted the government's wage and price program is
voluntary.
"We can fight (inflation) with
voluntary wage and price controls
backed in selected areas by the full
Better alternative sought
From page 3
Instead, he proposed a national
television violence index be
established. The most effective
way to stop television violence is to
develop a better alternative, he
said.
"The reason there's such a high
level of violent programs is
because they are cheap to make,"
Bandura said. The most popular
programs are variety programs,
he added.
Responding to another question,
Bandura said capital punishment
is not a good deterrent to murder.
"If a system can morally justify
killing, why can't an individual?"
he asked.
Many people perform violent
acts that go against their moral
codes because they have deluded
themselves into believing they are
right, he said.
Most U.S. presidential assassins
are loners who have deluded
themselves into believing their
causes justify assassination, he
said.
Bandura said specialized forms
of violence occur in waves. Using
airline hijacking as an example, he
said after it was successfully tried
in Cuba, "it proliferated rapidly
and then declined rapidly."
He said it, like other violent
phenomena, would decline with or
without the countermeasures used
against it in airports.
Certain living environments
encourage violence, Bandura said.
High-rise apartment buildings
have 69 per cent more crime than
walkup apartments because the
high-rises are more impersonal, he
said.
Bandura said showing violence
from the Vietnam war was
justified because it turned people
against the war.
force of the law."
The Liberal senator said the
government will respond to
demands that the anti-inflation
program be made more equitable.
"The aim is to give everyone an
equal share in the country's
productivity. For groups that fall
behind there will be action to bring
them back up, but for groups that
pull ahead there will be cutbacks,"
he said.
Perrault said an amendment to
the Liberal's anti-inflation bill has
been presented to parliament that
would allow anyone to increase
wages to $3.50 an hour regardless
of what percentage increase this
would be from their former wages.
But he did not say how groups
whose income increases fall behind
the general average will be aided.
The Liberal government's wage
and price control program is intended to protect the salaried
middle class, the old and the
unemployed who are suffering
most from rampant inflation,
Perrault claimed.
"These groups are unshielded in
the great fight between
management and labor," he said.
Combined recession and inflation over the last few years have
led the public to lose faith in money
and led certain groups to concentrate on short term economic
gains, Perrault said.
He said social deterioration has
led to widespread greed.
"A decline in values and social
discipline has changed into a drive
for short term rights. Everyone
wants rights now."
"Everyone acts as if the
restraint should be by someone
else. They make demands on the
economy when the economy is in a
position where it can give very
little," he said.
Perrault said the government
was reluctant to apply legal
restraints on wages and prices, but
was eventually forced to do so
when the "freedom" of Canada's
populace was threatened.
He claimed a widespread abuse
of freedom prompted the government's anti-inflation program to
preserve freedom.
"We had to decide how to control
the energy of freedom before there
was no freedom left to control," he
said.
Perrault said the government is
introducing a fiscal policy to
restrict the money supply as
another measure to control inflation.
"We have to let money grow at
the same rate of the economy," he
said.

Gridders lose chance for title
By TOM BARNES
The Thunderbird football team
was dumped by the University of
Calgary Dinosaurs 37-17 in Calgary
last Friday evening.
The defeat put an end to the
Thunderbirds' drive for first place
in the Western Intercollegiate
Football League. With a record of
6-1 the Dinos have cinched their
first title ever in the WIFL.
The 'Birds will have to win their
final game of the season this
Saturday at Thunderbird Stadium
against the University of Alberta
Golden Bears in order to finish
second. Frank Smith should have

UBC soccer
ends reign
The reigning Canada West and
national soccer champions, UBC
was dethroned over the weekend in
Edmonton.
Going into the finals with a 4-0
loss to the University of Victoria
Vikings, the Thunderbirds were
faced with an almost impossible
task of coming up with two wins
against the Universities of Alberta
and Saskatchewan and, on top of
that, hopes the Vikings get
swamped by either of the prairie
teams.
Well, the 'Birds proved they can
play soccer, but that was not
enough.
They started the tournament
with a 6-2 whipping of the
Saskatchewan Huskies. On their
way to their big win, the 'Birds also
managed to hit the cross-bar once
and the uprights four times.
As for the Huskies, they mounted
rather weak opposition but got two
goals, their only two of the tournament, for their trouble.
As the UVic team came back
from a 1-0 deficit at the half to take
the game against Alberta 2-1 on the
first of competition, the 'Birds' last
game against the Golden Bears
was little more than mere
ceremony. The Vikings only had to
come up with a draw against the
Huskies and that would have put
them in the national finals no
matter what the 'Birds did.
As it turned out the UVic mob
cleaned out Saskatchewan 4-0 and
the UBC squad gave up a
meaningless second place for an
equally meaningless third by
losing their final match 2-0 against
the Golden Bears.
So ends the 1975-76 intercollegiate soccer season for the
Thunderbirds. They still have the
B.C. league to go on their schedule.
They will start league play again
this Saturday against Vancouver
City who took over the Simon
Fraser University Clansmen spot

behind, the 'Birds now have a

up for that one, as there is more at
stake than position in the standings.
A win over the Bears will give
the 'Birds seven on the year, more
than any other UBC team has ever
collected in a season during the
"modern era" of football on
campus.

UBC women ran to a decisive team victory at the Canada West cross
country championships Saturday in Edmonton.
Sheila Currie of UBC completely dominated the race, leading from
start to finish, she covered the 4,000 metre course in 13.52.
UBC runners Linda Rossetti and Leslie Stubbs also ran well, finishing
in second and fourth places.
By the half way point of the race, Currie had accumulated an eighty
yard lead over the rest of the field. Rossetti, in second, held a fifty yard
lead on eventual third place finisher Shawna Miller of Alberta. Miller in
turn led Stubbs who was bunched in with a pack of other runners, by a
similar margin.
Currie was not pressed after that point of the race, and finished with a
comfortable margin. Rossetti, in what was perhaps her best race of the
season, continued to run hard right to the finish. Stubbs ran powerfully in
the last half of the race, and broke away from the pack to finish fourth.
Snow, three to six inches deep, covered the hilly course, but temperatures hovering just above freezing kept the ground slippery.
"I thought the course was quite dangerous in places." said Currie.
"Going uphill was okay, but going downhill was scary. I ran hard, though,
and am quite pleased with the race. No team was close to us point-wise."
Currie complained there are no Canadian intercollegiate cross country
championships for women. She dominates the western Canadian crosscountry Scene, and much of her difficult competitition lies in the east. She
will, however, have a chance to meet some of that competition in the
Canadian open cross-country championships November 15 at Stanley
Park.
The University of Alberta narrowly defeated UBC in the men's race. ■
Lyle Kuchmak of the University of Alberta won over the 9,300 metre
distance (5-3/4 miles in 29:42. UBC runners Chris White and John
Wheeler trailed in second and third places in 29:57 and 30:08 respectively.
Teammates Gerry Lister, Doug Webber and Rob MacKenzie filled out the
UBC scoring team in 12,15 and 17 places respectively.
Kuchmak charged unhesitatingly down treacherous hills, gaining
ground on the UBC runners each time he did so. But White and Wheeler
gained on him over the uphills.
Last year Wheeler and White ran away from the field after half a mile,
and finished first and second. But Saturday's race saw teams with much
greater depth than in previous years. The first seven places were filled by
runners from six different teams.
White, although disappointed at not having won the race, still expressed some satisfaction. "I think I ran my best race of the season," he
said.
Wheeler said he was "fairly pleased." "Chris and I have been
jockeying back and forth in each race we've entered this season, but I'm
pleased that the only guy who beat us was this Kuchmak."
The University of Alberta had a team score of 45. UBC trailed close
behind with 49 points. Team scores were determined by adding up the top
five finishing places of each team.
"I was surprised," said UBC team coach Lionel Pugh. "But with just
four points, it could have gone either way."
Pugh acknowledged that UBC runners finished very strongly, but felt
that they would have had to start faster in order to win the team title.
"I feel that if it'd been anywhere but on snow and ice, it would have
been a different story. On the day, with the given conditions, the right
team won. But I don't think they were the right conditions. The intent of
cross country running is not to find out who can run the fastest on ice and
snow."
UBC cross country runners found themselves at a disadvantage, felt
Pugh, because they are tall.
"Chris White could make up a lot of ground (on Kuchmak) uphill," he
said, "but not downhill. Being tall, he has a high centre of gravity. It's
hard for such runners to run downhill."
The Canadian Intercollegiate cross-country championships will be held
next Saturday in Victoria. Only Chris White and John Wheeler will race
there.
Their record now is 6-3-0.
Thus the fact his team fell short
in their bid for first place is not
about to make Smith turn his head
in shame.
In Calgary, Gary Me,tz' 22-yard
field goal, Dan Smith's 18-yard
touchdown pass to Evan Jones, and
Greg Gradner's two-point convert
toss to Digby Leigh kept the 'Birds
in the game until midway through
the fourth quarter.
At that point, with the score 18-11
Calgary, the Dinos shifty running
back Dan Diduck ran a punt back
61 yards for a touchdown.
Diduck finished up the game
with 108 yards and three touchdowns, while his running mate
Gary Jackson picked up 148 yards
along the ground. These two facts
illustrate that UBC failed to do
what it had to if they were going to
stay close; stop the potent Calgary
rushing attack.
Dan Smith rounded out the 'Bird,
scoring with a 15-yard pass to
Jones.

On the evening Smith was good

The Dinos totalled 427 yards.
UBC fullback Gord Penn picked

points of their first win of the
season as the University of

them 17-15. The Huskies needed
two third-quarter touchdowns to
get the win.

By pounding Kats 20-3
Rugger returns to form
The Thunderbird rugby team
smothered the Kats 20-3 to move
their season record to 6-2 in a
Vancouver Rugby Union first
division game Saturday.
It appears that the early season
doldrums that had gripped the
team have been cast aside.
"We had to juggle some new
faces into the lineup, and then
eligibility caused a little problem,
and we have had some injuries in
key places. Now things have settled down somewhat," said coach
Donn Spence.
One new face Spence is going to
have to take a longer look at is
hooker Henry Edmunds. Filling in
for the ailing Larry Chung, Edmunds was impressive against the
Kats. A head-on collision that
resulted in a broken jaw for the
unlucky Kat that took a run at him,
sent Edmunds off to take six
stitches.
Spence figures Edmunds to be a
doubtful starter in the 'Birds' next
encounter, with the Rowing Club
Saturday.
John Billingsley and Mel Reeves
were ample proof that the UBC
backfield no longer lacks spark.
In addition to his usual shifty
moves  while  carrying  the  ball,
Puck 'Birds clean up
The Thunderbird hockey team
heads into Canada West action
with an exhibition record of four
wins and no losses.
On October 25 and 26, the 'Birds
were in Powell River, playing two
games against an Intermediate
men's team. They had no trouble,
winning both 11-3. Every player on
the four forward lines scored at
least once during the games,
showing the team has good depth.
Last Saturday night and Sunday
afternoon, the 'Birds were matched against the North Shore
Hurry Kings of the Northwest
Intermediate League. In the first
game, the 'Birds recorded their
first shutout of the year, annihilating the Kings in their home
rink 9-0. Both Jim Stuart and Pete
Moyls had two goals.
On Sunday, this time at UBC, the
'Birds handed the Kings their
second defeat in a row, overrunning them 12-3.
Bill Ennos scored the opening
goal at 7:20. Taking a pass from
Grant Cumberbirch, he worked in
on the left and let go a good wrist
shot from about 20 feet out.
In the second period, play got
rougher, with six penalties handed
out. The first of these came right
after Bob Sperling scored the
'Birds' second goal. The Kings
were caught with two many men on
the ice during a line change.
This enabled the 'Birds to score
again. Wayne Hendry's slap shot
from the point was deflected by
Stuart, high over Bradley's
shoulder.
Midway through the period,
Grant Cumberbirch scored two
quick goals from close in. The
'Birds scored again when Moyls
flipped Keith Tindle's deflected
slapshot over Bradley's shoulder.
The final goal of the period came
when a Hurry King defenceman
deflected Bob Hesketh's 35-foot
wrist shot into his own net.
At 6:01 of the third, the Kings got
their first goal when Les Saylow
passed to Jack Ritchie in front of
the 'Birds' net. He gave goalie Ron
Lefebvre no chance, firing the
puck low to Lefebvre's stick side.
With less than five minutes
remaining, the Kings got their
second goal. Lefebvre again had no

chance as Brad Mathews deflected
Jack Mitchie's wrist shot. Less
than aminute later, Mathews' high
shot from the corner was batted
into the net by Mitchie for the last
goal of the game.
UBC coach Bob Hindmarch said
that games against teams such as
the Hurry Kings are bad for the
'Birds. He said that in these games
the team can make mistakes and
get away with them. They don't
learn from their miscues, and
make the same errors against the
good teams.
The 'Birds' first Canada West
action is next Friday and Saturday
against the University of
Saskatchewan Huskies.
Cagers win
It had all the miscues of an early
season game: bad passes, missed
plays, spotty defence and poor
rebounding. But the 'Birds' 71-68
win over the Vancouver Capilanos
indicated the material for a strong
team is there.
With the starters in, the 'Birds
cruised to a 16-8 lead. But early
season roughness began to show.
Mullins put in the subs, and the
lead began to dissolve.
In the second half, a scoring
spree by Vancouver's Bill Ruby
brought the Caps even. UBC got
one point up on a free throw, and it
stayed that way until Steve Pettifer sank two more foul shots for
the three-point margin.
A few plus marks emerged from
the tangle of missed shots and
passes. VCC transfer Jan Bohn
looked competent inside, taking
some of the rebounding pressure
off Mike McKay. McKay himself is
jumping better, and his positioning
under the boards is improved.
David Craig hit some fine outside
shots, and Ralph Turner came off
the bench in the second half to pot
eight quick points from the corner.
Terry McKay of Vancouver led
all scorers with 18 points. Bob
Barazzuol had 16. Craig led the
'Birds with 13 points.
UBC plays again November 7
and 8 against the Grads and the
North Shore Mountaineers.

Billingsley provided an outstanding display of defensive
placement kicking. His pinpoint
kicks of 50 to 60 yards were of
immeasurable assistance in
confining the weak offensive drives
of the Kats.
Reeves played as strong a
running game as he ever has in a
Thunderbird uniform. He not only
carried the ball well but was aware
of his teammates whereabouts. His
educated passes led to several
Thunderbirds points.
John Oleson opened the game's
scoring with an unconverted try
early in the first half. Edmunds
scored another try on a 30-yard
sprint set up by a Reeves pass.
Fullback Graham Taylor capped
a strong Thunderbird thrust in the
second half with the final UBC try
of the game.
Scrum half Preston Wiley
rounded out the UBC scoring with
eight points on two penalty goals
and a convert.
As a result of the game the 'Birds
move  into  fourth  place,   half  a
game  behind  the  Rowing   Club.
Thus this Saturday's game looms '
large.
Another big First division game
will pit the second-place Kats
against the undefeated first-place
