Far out classes tune in teachers
By STEVE McCLURE
Move over Dating Game and Masterpiece
Theater. The B.C. government's own educational television network is here.
Inaugurated Monday, the provincial
government's new knowledge network is
designed to give those without access to B.C.
institutions of higher learning the chance to
further their education.
But if you live in the lower mainland you'll
need a converter if you want to catch programs like "19th century novel" or "Mind
you own business." Interior residents can
pick up the knowledge network on their
regular television dial courtesy of the CBC's
Anik satellite.
V
During its first period of operation the new
network will broadcast 80 hours a week. Programs come from a variety of sources, including UBC and Britain's Open university.
In addition to supplementing higher learning the network will also have programming
for children, seniors and a variety of special
interest groups.
"It's just the tip of the iceberg that's being
demonstrated now," said UBC geography
professor and former deputy education
minister Walter Hardwick, who chairs the
eight-person board that oversees the network's operations under the auspices of the
provincial cabinet.
"We're trying to demonstrate to people
the range of things that can be dealt with in
using television. By September we may have
quite a different schedule."
Credit will be granted to those students
taking university courses by air although the
network is not designed to take the place of
traditional learning institutions, said Hardwick.
Some courses will consist mainly of lectures but others will be "interactive" and
through telephone hookups will enable
students and instructors to exchange questions and answers.
"We are also interested in data and audio
transmission," said Hardwick.
Hardwick said within a year the network
will start beaming lectures to target audiences
from on campus. These broadcasts will be
aimed at specific off campus companies and
institutions. This will probably begin within a
year.
Another service planned by the knowledge
network for next year is a restricted cable
system that will connect all three B.C. universities.
The system will enable teaching hospitals
to be connected to medical school facilities so
technical knowledge can be transmitted more
effectively, Hardwick said. Law students will
be able to watch proceedings from downtown
courts if this part of the network goes ahead.
"I hope and expect that other faculties will
utilize this service," said Hardwick. "Most
of them are not aware of what the
possibilities are."
"The old complaint that you can't live in
Smithers and be a professional will no longer
be true," added Hardwick. "It's the univer
sity's obligation to make this sort of thing
available."
Council
cops out of
committee
Student council apathy is killing
activity on the standing committee
on tuition and financial aid.
The committee has failed to attain quorum at its last three
meetings because not a single student council member has attended,
committee chair Maureen Boyd said
Monday.
"It's been so long since I've seen
a council member I probably
wouldn't recognize one," Boyd
said.
Because Boyd chairs a standing
student council committee, she
automatically has a non-voting seat
on council. Only one more council
member needs to attend for the
committee to reach quorum, but
even that seems an impossible task.
Boyd said the two council
members on the committee, external affairs co-ordinator Al Soltis
and science representative Nigel
Brownlow, rarely attend committee
meetings.
They were unavailable for comment.
Despite council's lack of interest,
the committee is forging ahead as
best it can.
The committee's main objective
is to make a presentation to UBC's
board of governors on bursaries.
Boyd said the board must be made
aware that undergraduate bursaries
are barely adequate and more
money is needed.
She said the presentation will require a lot of research because,
"We won't make fools of
ourselves, like our AMS (Alma
Mater Society) did for us on
tuition," Boyd said.
(Student council failed in its bid
to stop the board from raising tuition fees 13 per cent at the board's
November meeting.)
The committee is also making
plans for a forum on tuition fees to
take place at the end of January.
Chancellor candidate Stan Persky is
already scheduled as a speaker.
The committee has also made
tentative plans for a day of protest
over the board's policy of indexing
tuition fees to take place at the end
of February.
Meanwhile, the board is considering action following a presentation the grad student association
made in December.
According to student board
representative John Pellizon, "The
GSA's presentation left the board
members thinking. It drew blood."
Pellizon said following the
presentation the board directed
UBC's administration to study tuition and financial aid for graduate
students and to submit a report on
the subject when the university's
budget comes through.

Houses to
go in spite
of shortage
By ERIC EGGERTSON
Two unfinished solar houses in
Acadia camp will likely be
demolished despite objections from
residents of the camp, the president
of the Acadia Camp Tenants'
Association said Monday.
"We really would have liked to
see those houses finished even if
they'd been at market cost," said
Gail Bexton.
University housing director Mike
Davis said he doubted the solar
houses would be finished. Citing a
year-old consultant's report he said
"It would cost $65,000 to finish
them."
But increased construction costs
could push that figure as high as
$90,000, he said.
The two solar houses, Earth
House and Conservation House,
were begun in 1978 by architect
Charles Haynes. Haynes used architecture and construction classes
for labor, promoting the houses as
low-cost designs for students.
"I feel I could finish Earth House
for $5,000," Haynes said Monday.
He added that costs can be kept
down by the use of volunteer labor.
Haynes presented ACTA with a
proposal to finish the two houses
himself and charge rent to pay for
the costs. But ACTA co-president
Robert Ree said that they can take
no action in the matter.
"We're not in a legal position to
do anything about it," Ree said.
"No action has been taken except
that we've expressed our objection
to having these places torn down. It
would be a sheer waste of money."
Haynes said that Consevation
House is three-quarters finished
and could be finished for $15,000.
The discrepency between Haynes'
figures and Davis' cost estimates is
more than $80,000.
"Davis is quoting a consultant's
report that suggests putting in
carpets and checking the wiring,"

No fees until Selkirk settles
Students at Selkirk College in
Nelson have massively protested
government cutbacks by
withholding tuition fees.
Students say the cutbacks have
caused labor-management disputes
which directly threatens the quality
of education at the college.
About 20 per cent of Castlegar
campus' 650 students, and 75 per
cent of David Thompson University
Centre's 250 full-time students
withheld tuition fees Monday.
The college -administration has
been negotiating with the 145
member Canadian Union of Public
Employees since November. The
non-teaching employees at the two
campuses voted by a two-to-one
majority to undertake strike action
for a new collective agreement.
Students organized the protest in
order to pressure a settlement between union and management. They
do not wish a repeat of the 1978
strike-lockout when West Kootenay
schools were closed down for six
weeks.
The employees returned to work
only after the provincial government established essential services
legislation.
Richard Bell, vice-president of
the Castlegar campus student society, said students are also using the
boycott to tell the education
ministry they are dissatisfied with
budget cutbacks affecting the interior   campuses.    He   said   the
students feel that they should not
have to pay fees if the administration cannot guarantee classes.
Education cutbacks are having a
negative affect on students' education as well as administration-union
relations, said Bell.
Bell, an organizer of the student
fee boycott, said he is pleased with
the united action displayed by the
students. "I think it shows students
can act co-operatively when
threatened," he said. Page 2

Gage guards keep outsiders out
Engineering students, rather than
RCMP or campus security, have
been hired by the Gage community
council as a security force in the student residence.
The action follows a precedent
set last January and continued in
September when the civil engineering club and Gage hockey team
were hired to curb violence and vandalism by non-residents.
Allan Soltis, GCC president and
Alma Mater Society external affairs
co-ordinator, says the security people are merely observers.
But the students view their role
differently and may be overstepping
their mandate.
"They (security) are not
policemen," Soltis said. "They
should contact the RCMP in the
event of a major problem."
He said the security patrol should
not be checking for identification or
preventing entrance to the building.
But one electrical engineer who
worked at Gage on the weekend
viewed his role differently.
"We are there to prevent people
from taking liquor from parties and
carrying it through the residences,"
he said, asking to remain
anonymous.
People who are going to visit
friends in Gage are asked to wait
for the residence attendant to
phone up to the room for people to
come down and get them, he said.
The security force consists of
eight to ten engineers. They are on
duty from 9:00 p.m. to 3:00 a.m.
When the idea of a security force
was first investigated, the campus
patrol was approached to provide
personnel. But they wanted $150
per person per night, Soltis said, adding, " we get engineers for about
$12 per person."
"The RCMP do their best but
they are not equipped to adequatel-
ly patrol," *he said. "In the past
they have always helped us out."
The RCMP are now short staffed, especially at night, as a result of
budget cuts earlier this year. As a
result, Gage has requested that the
RCMP just increase its surveillance
of the residence.
"Just by having the RCMP drive
around Gage keeps away the real
potential trouble-makers," Soltis
said.
The Gage council hired the
security for the first three weekends
to set a standard of behavior for
the term, he said. In the past security people have always been needed
at this time of year, but the need is
being questioned now, he added.
"The main problem is with outsiders coming to Gage looking for
parties," Soltis said.
He cited past incidences of furniture thrown from an eleventh
floor window by West Vancouver
high school students, a fight in
front of Gage involving outsiders,
cars destroyed late at night in the
underground parking area, and a
floor party two years ago where a
student was given a concussion by a
chemistry professor at a Gage floor
party.
Since the measures have been introduced there has been only one
minor incident. In September some
young people were caught running
across the tops of cars in the
underground parking area, Soltis
said. "This underground is extremely vulnerable."
But one security person on duty
Saturday said they had ejected a
person from the south tower after a
bottle was dropped down the
stairwell this term. The person was
not a Gage resident.

Amazing Grace gabs on divorce
Reducing financial friction between divorced couples is a top
priority of the B.C. human
resources ministry, deputy premier
Grace McCarthy said Friday.
"Enforcement of maintenance
orders is one of the key problems in
the province, and we will do
something about it this year," McCarthy told 50 students and faculty
in the school of social work.
She said current legislation is in
adequate to deal with the problem
of enforcing maintenance orders
once a judge has ordered them.
"My problem with it is not
anything to do with money," McCarthy said. "The problem I see is
the incredible harassment between
the two people once there has been
a court settlement and the fellow
doesn't send that money."
She proposed the establishment
of a collection agency to which a
spouse would send a cheque once
given a maintenance order.
"If the payment ceases for
whatever reason, this financial entity would still provide money for the
spouse. She would never have to
know payment stopped," McCarthy said.
"After all, they've decided to
disconnect. Why keep them
together with a dollar bill?" she added.

Student papers
vie for autonomy
WINNIPEG (CUP) — Three
years ago editors of the University
of Winnipeg student newspaper, the
Uniter, had their salaries cut be a
student union which felt the weekly
newspaper was being too critical.
Earlier this year the Manitoban,
the student newspaper at the
University of Manitoba, almost had
its editor fired for much the same
reason.
These actions will never happen
again if current plans for both
papers to gain autonomy from their
student unions are successfully
completed.
With autonomy the newspapers
will collect a per student levy directly from the students rather than
throught the student union. The
newspapers will also legally incorporate themselves and become
legally liable for their content.
Like The Ubyssey, both papers
currently receive grants from their
student unions. The Uniter receives
about $15,000 while the twice-
weekly Manitoban receives close to
$50,000. (The Ubyssey, a thrice-
weekly, receives $40,000.)
Until the newspapers gain
autonomy, ultimate liability and
control over the newspapers lie with
their student unions.
Both papers hope to gain independence by April, and their student unions are supporting their
move. All that is left now, say
Uniter editor Linda Williamson and
Manitoban editor Andrew Coyne,
is final negotiations and paper
work.
Both editors said autonomy is
needed not only at their own
newspapers but at all student
newspapers across the country.
(Only eight of more than 100 Canadian student newspapers are
autonomous.)
With the student union controlling the newspaper funds, "a certain

Prof retires
age restrictions
WINNIPEG (CUP) — A University of Manitoba professor has successfully challenged mandatory
retirement at age 65.
An appelate court has ruled invalid a collective agreement clause
which required U of M faculty to
retire at 65.
Education professor Imogene
Mclntyre turned 65 in 1980 and was
due to retire last July.
Instead she applied to the Court
of Queen's Bench for a ruling making the clause illegal because it contravened the province's Human
Rights Act. The Act prohibits
employment discrimination on the
basis of age, and prohibits unions
from entering into agreements that
do so.
Mclntyre said she challenged the
clause because, "There is no mandatory age of retirement in
Manitoba," and because she enjoyed her work, was productive,
and would like to continue working.
Three of five appeal court judges
agreed with her and the June 10
decision of the Court of Queen's
Bench which said, "no employer
may refuse to employ a person sole
ly on the basis of his age, no matter
what that age may be."
University spokesperson Bob
Raeburn said the implications of
the decision were not clear but
pointed out that Justice Charles
Huband said it "relates to a particular contract, and not further."
Raeburn said the university has
not decided whether to appeal.
Pat McEvoy, of the Canadian
Association of Industrial
Mechanical and Allied Workers,
said this ruling would have a "profound effect."
"It completely invalidates their
(U of M's) general retirement
policy," he said.
McEvoy said there would be
more challenges to the retirement
clause as well.
Ed Anderson, head of the U of M
faculty association, said although
there had not been time to study the
decision carefully, it would seem
the rule was now law in Manitoba.
He expressed concern for the effects the decision might have on the
pension plan and stressed that UMFA would press for a better'
"scheme of mid-career options" as
a result of the decision. Page 4

Not for rent
The fact that there is an acute housing shortage in Vancouver has escaped
few people's notice. Certainly it hasn't escaped the notice of hundreds of
students who searched desperately for accomodation and the many who
are still looking for a decent place to live.
The UBC housing department, however, is different. Let nothing stand
in the way of improving housing for students, except—well, except just
about everything under the sun.
Some time ago, years ago, an innovative and timely project was begun
by the housing department. Building houses using solar energy on the
university endowment lands caught the department's fancy for a time.
Temporary lack of funding cooled its fancy and a half-finished model housing project lay mildewing for a long time.
Now, when there's a possibility of renewed funding for the solar housing
project, UBC housing seems more intent on finding ways to add to the red
tape and justify abandoning the project rather than gratefully accepting
housing that needs only finishing, not a costly beginning.
Charles Haynes, the architect who designed the solar houses, says he
can make them habitable for $20,000: less than the average salary of a
university administrator; a fraction of the cost of even one unit of housing
from the cost of the lot up; probably less than the cost of destroying the
houses, an alternative the housing department blandly prepares for.
Such negligence and lack of foresight comes close to criminal. Housing
director Mike Davis has failed utterly to adapt to the housing crisis. Even
now, much of the accomodation in Acadia could be renovated and upgraded to better meet the immediate problem.
Instead the university administration is bubbling with plans to turn out
people who have no other place to go and begin costly building programs
that might have no effect on the housing shortage for years.
All when there's houses that can be utilized immediately at minimum
cost. And when these are houses that can serve as the model for an innovative cooperative that could provide the university population with an
efficient, low cost method for providing people with a place to live.
Does the housing department for some reason distrust cooperative effort, our most inexpensive, energetic human resource? Or are they just
blind, blind enough to believe there is some twisted rationale in destroying
nearly-finished housing?
The UBC housing department must face the fact people need a place to
live. Now.

In response to Lori Thicke's article "Boys and girls, today's lesson
is . . ." Thicke has written a well
thought out, well researched,
somewhat interesting, but out of
date essay. Perhaps, not for the interest of Ubyssey readers but for
her women's studies prof who, no
doubt, gave her a good mark? The
essay is similar to one I wrote for a
second year education course, 1977.
This raises some interesting questions.
With the "new breed" of
teachers emerging today, those
educated during the 70's, and with
the study of women's issues, sexism, and sexual stereotypes in
vogue, does Thicke think that we
teachers and the general population
are unaware of the problems with
textbooks, language, and courses in
the schools? Surely Thicke experienced education during the 70's
and, if so aware of the sex role
stereotype, she must have wanted to
change it — or at least bring the
matter to the attention of her peers
and teachers in school?
Thicke makes some startling
generalizations:   "But   discrimina-
Bad taste
It was with horror that I regarded
Arne Hermann's recent article (Jan.
8, 1981) on teenage suicide. This
newspaper displayed tremendous irresponsibility by printing the "incorrect" and "correct" ways of
wrist slashing.
Why undermine your coverage of
a serious issue with irrelevant, sensationalist diagrams? Those pictures are dangerous.
Suicide is often a desperate plea
for help. You could have illustrated
this point by noting that very often
the methods used are ineffective,
serving more to draw attention to
the person's distress than acting as
serious attempts to die, without
resorting to the use of diagrams innocently labelled "Figure A" and
"Figure B".
Sometimes the stance of information to increase public awareness
can be taken too far — I would say
that this is such an instance.

tion against women is at its height
— or depth — in textbooks ranging
from children's readers to college

sources? She obviously did not take
the time to examine some of the recent reading materials used in the
schools today or consult the BCTF
task force on sexism. I refer those
interested to the new editions of the
"Basal Reading Series" and many
of the other current materials in the
school system. Thicke must also
consider the economics of placing
new materials in schools. There is
already too little money invested in
the "socialization" of our youth by
bureaucrats.

I would like to comment on your
report in Friday's Ubyssey concerning bar operating hours in SUB.
Unfortunately you got things completely backwards. Bars at beer
gardens or dances in SUB formerly
had to close by 11:30 p.m. After
over one month of negotiations
with SAC, we agreed on the following changes:
Groups now can make a request
to SAC for a later bar closing time
(furthermore, for a two month trial
period SAC will allow bars to
operate 'til midnight. The reason
bars will not be allowed to operate
any later than midnight is that the
RCMP, due to staff shortages, will
not authorize a liquor license specifying bar operation any later than
12:30.
Secondly, groups formerly had to
vacate the building by 1 a.m. This
was to allow enough time to clean
the building every night. Groups
can now apply to SAC for permission to vacate the building later
than 1 a.m. Assuming the group
can guarantee that people attending
their function will exit the building
directly after its function terminates
(so cleaning can proceed in other
areas of the building concurrently),
the group could be allowed to occupy the building beyond 1 a.m.

As interest and awareness increase,
unbiased educational material and
attitudes will be produced. We need
people to remind us that the
discrimination exists though we
must use caution not to perpetuate
the notion that nothing is being
done, one of the shortcomings of
Thicke's essay. I as a future
teacher, want to change what has
been happening and actively search
for unbiased materials for my
students. Hopefully, so do most of
my colleagues.
As a request Ms. Thicke, would it
be possible for you to write a follow
up to this essay presenting the
positive events (as few as they may
be) that attempt to counteract this
problem? I'm sure that most
educators would accept constructive criticism much more readily
than the negative and dismal picture
you paint.
There are other important and
pressing issues facing the education
system in B.C., we don't need
criticism, we need support for the
dynamic change we are trying to implement. You brought to light one
of these changes and for this you
must be thanked.

What's Wrong
With Women?
By KURT PREINSPERGER
There is now widespread consensus that a
society nudging women into stereotyped
behaviors and careers leaves immense reservoirs of human talent untapped. But in spite
of the complacent optimism which pervades
discussions of "changing sex roles," certain
changes are painfully slow in coming.
Women are still very much the minority in
most technical and scientific fields. Most
women still submit to the idolatry of looks
and often go to absurd lengths to enhance
their flesh appeal. And almost all women, in
their attitude toward men, gladly acquiese in
the male prerogative to initiate encounters.
Various men's and women's magazines
(which reflect the persistence of sex roles
most clearly) often run fascinating stories
about women picking up men — fascinating
precisely because in real life such role reversals are both desired and uncommon. Try to
remember, if you are a male, how many
women have asked you out lately. Even if
you made the initial contact, how often did a
woman take the second step to arrange a
date? And do women mention when they
would like to sleep with you, or do they
always wait for you to ask?
perspectives
A great many men have begun to resent
their involuntary role as instigators and
would be thrilled if women, for a change,
made advances. The unliberated majority of
women dislike this idea for a number of
reasons, partly because of vested interests in
present practices.
Almost every woman in our society, if she
is reasonably accessible, will be asked out on
dates, no matter how passive she is. She can
reject some men, make love to others, and in
either event strengthen her self-esteem.
But the situation of a man who is shy to
begin with and not endowed with imposing
looks, a brilliant mind or rich parents is
radically different: he will have to force
himself to take initiatives and quite often
finds himself rejected. Every rejection shakes
his confidence, reinforces his shyness,
perhaps pushes him into the abyss of self-
hate.
For a young man with few conquests to
look back upon, all it often takes is a string
of rejections to convince him that he holds no
attraction at all for women.
Conventional courtship practices enable
any empty-headed and callous female to
mock the feelings of sensitive men who are
sometimes diffident, clumsy in their attempts
at seduction. Men are always forced to act as
if they were the ones to want something from
women — a scenario that still encourages
women to barter sexual favors in exchange
for gifts and numerous concessions.
Especially young women, with their lesser
impulse toward sex than young men, are in
an enviable bargaining position, and on the
strength of one overrated asset, sex appeal,
they often hold men in subtle bondage. It is
life's greatest source of despair for quite a
few men to be born with the need for love
and to depend on women for this love; and as
time goes by, they may find it increasingly
easier to hate women and live without them.
Women give four main reasons to justify
the status quo: concern for the male ego, the
misunderstandings dilemma, fear of rejection
and the problem of diminished respect.
This last one, if it is true — if women cannot respect a man whom they pick up — exemplifies sex roles at their most destructive.
The result is an interpersonal selection process in which men continue to depend on a
strong image of superiority, and women
largely on attractive looks to be noticed and
chosen.
Surely, such a mistaken view of what it
means to respect another person is learned
rather than inborn, and however ingrained,
can be unlearned. Women who disrespect shy
men had better realize that men, too, are losing respect for conventional, submissive, boring women.
Women should distinguish two broad
types of men: the aggressive and the shy. It is
a big mistake, the biggest and most unforgivable that females make, to think that
just because a man is shy, he cannot be interesting.
In their own passiveness, many women are
accessible only to aggressive men, but expect
them ot have the kind of character plainly incompatible with aggressive self-assurance.
Heartbroken, when the lady-killer turns out
to be a slob, they acquire an air of haughty
defensiveness, warn other women against
"us" brutes, and make it doubly difficult for
shy men to get through to them.
A second reason why women make few
passes at men is fear of being misunderstood.
It is true enough that certain simpletons are
slow to comprehend the difference between a
woman asking them to dance and asking
them to bed. But while they may be disappointed when their temptress suddenly plays
coy, even they would hardly have mistaken
her for a prostitute.
For a woman interested in convincing men
of her equality, it is certainly self-defeating to
give in to sex role expectations and wait for
men to take their pick. The courageous way
out of the misunderstandings dilemma is
clearly to waken men up to changing times
and get them used to women who are different — who take their equality in every
respect for granted.
Another popular excuse for passive women
is their professed concern for the male ego.
They claim that men need to feel in control
and would perceive female initiatives as a
threat to their masculinity.
If a lot of men indeed prefer to be in control, it is not because of some factor in their
biology, but simply because of sociocultural
conditioning, which the conventional female
attitude fosters and perpetuates. The
masculine image that men are expected to
project is just a mask. We are all human beings, frail creatures with much the same
needs, never fully in control of our lives,
vulnerable, confused, afraid and sometimes
sorry for ourselves — and, damn it, we men
have the same right as women not to be
ashamed of it!
A final defense of female passivity is, of
course, fear of an ego-crushing rejection. In
fact, since male interest in the opposite sex is
readily excitable, at present the risk of rejection is much smaller for women than for
men.
Yet although the risk is small, it is still
possible for a woman to be turned down by
feeble-witted macho^men. It is also possible
that, in her insecurity, she comes on too
strong and does not let men get a word in
edgeways. Whatever the cause, an occasional
rejection can only enrich the spectrum of
female emotions and make women more
sympathetic to the male predicament.
Many built-in suspicions and conflicts
block communication between the sexes today. Certainly, lifting the taboo on active
female approaches to men would not suddenly overcome all of them; but I think that it
would overcome some and mitigate others.
From the male viewpoint, it would remove
the penalty of shyness; from the female viewpoint, it would provide a better choice of
partners along with more active control over
this choice, and perhaps lessen the tyranny of
looks; and for both women and men it would
shorten needless periods of loneliness. In addition, as I shall briefly argue, it could reduce
the problem of sexual harassment and improve the social climate in many places, including the university.
A significant proportion of students
perceive the social climate at UBC as cold
and alienating, partly because females make
little effort to be friendly. Look around in
the SUB cafeteria, for example, and you see
lots of students eating by themselves, with
frozen faces, loath to exchange a word with
people opposite, or a smile, or only a glance.
As long as there are vacant tables, it almost
seems against some law, or at least in poor
taste, to sit down at a table where someone is
sitting already, especially someone of the
other sex.
Especially women invariably fail to say
hello when sitting down at a table where a
man is sitting; moreover, there is a pronounced trend for them to sit with other women if
they have a choice.
The cafeteria is one of relatively few places
for students from all faculties to interact. The
number of contacts actually made, however,
seems to vary in inverse proportion to the opportunities.
Consider it for a minute: Is there nothing
wrong in our society when a male.and a
female, having lunch at the same table,
shrink from exchanging a friendly word? But
instead of striking up a chat when sitting
beside men in the cafeteria, on the bus or in
any other public place, women typically don
their grim mask of defensiveness.
There probably exist, in the immense
people-pool at UBC, many potential friends
and lovers for almost everyone. Yet repeatedly, to my surprise, I have met men at UBC
who went through years of studying without
a single love affair.
Many reasons suggest themselves — and it
is always tempting to say that a lonely person
has only himself to blame; but after one gets
to know some of these men, how likable they
are, intelligent and warmhearted, men with
whom good women would be in extremely
good hands, it is hard not to blame their
predicatment at least partly on female
stupidity.
And in reading feminist articles on
"harassment", I am always amazed and
amused at how abysmally simple-minded
they are. To repeat the obvious in the face of
all   this   hypocrisy   —  wherever   men   and
In any public place
women typically don
their grim mask
of defensiveness.
women work side by side, sexual tension is
bound to creep in and demand some form of
release. We have three choices: to revert to
repressive measures against sex, to separate
men and women on the job, or to welcome
liaisons whenever they develop.
In fact, sexual tension spices up many a
dreary office — and women would want to
be the last group to change that. The
workplace is second only to college as the
most popular place to find a husband; and
sociologists have documented that many
women choose their jobs specifically with
men in mind.
And yet, when opportunities arise, it is
seldom the female who makes the first move
— a move, or pass, or overture that, obviously, has to be made at some point.
The facts are that women seldom make advances, that they often humiliate men for too
direct advances, and that they are nevertheless looking for men; therefore, women
have every reason to take innuendos with a
sense of humor. I like innuendos as little as
feminists (probably because I am not very

«.yg^-^M^'...
Can't have beer, drink it too
During the 1979-80 operating
year, the budget revenue from the
Pit exceeded the budget expenses by
a net $40,000. These excess
revenues did not come from the
following sources:
1) increased mark-up:
the mark-up on each unit (bottle
of beer or glass of draft) was
lower during 1979-80 than the
previous year. Prices increased
from 85 cents per bottle to 95
cents per bottle or 11.7 per cent.
Costs   of   beer   increased   on
average by 16 per cent.
2) increase in sales:
the number of units sold during
the 1979-80 operating year was
392,000  compared  to   1978-79
sales of 415,000 units.
Therefore, our costs must have
decreased   somewhere   along   the
line. The costs of wages, cleaning
supplies and equipment repairs did
not change significantly. The only
explanation  is   a  reduction   and
hopefully   an   elimination   of
employee theft. The social centre
manager has instituted some strict
inventory   control   measures   and
these procedures are responsible for
most of the $40,000 excess revenue.
Now, what about the 1980-81 Pit
budget which shows the operation
contributing $47,000? This contribution (profit) comes before two
very important costs:
1) the AMS business office does all
accounting functions (cheques,
accounts payable and payroll).
Estimates show that approximately 15-20 per cent of the
work load of the business office
can be related to the Pit. Fifteen
per cent of the business office
budget is $30,000, which is costs
that should be covered by Pit
operation.
2) depreciation of the equipment,
tables chairs and the rest of
$300,000 of capital costs required to build the Pit is not included. At some time in the
future, the equipment will be
worn out and need to be replaced. Depreciation is the expense
which reilects this type of wear
and tear.
Unless both of these costs are
covered by Pit operations, the AMS
is losing money, that is, the Pit
would be operating at a loss.
One could say that the Pit is a service and should operate at a loss. I
disagree. If the Pit operates at a
loss, in effect the prices are being
subsidized. I do not mean to say
there is anything wrong with subsidized prices. However, the beer
drinker or other student that frequents the Pit should not receive a
subsidized price at the expense of
the non-beer drinking students who
never go to the Pit.
I have no factual data to support
any claim, but I suggest that no
more than 50 per cent of the student
population ever goes to the Pit and
perhaps 10 per cent are the hard
core patrons.
I do know for a fact that the
$300,000 that was needed to build
the Pit came from 100 per cent of
the students as part of the cost of
SUB. Also, that it took 18 years to
pay off SUB.
I believe that students council
should act as a trustee and treat all
the beneficiaries equally. It is unfair
to provide a benefit to some AMS
members at the expense of the other
AMS members.
What type of costs am I referring
to? Glad you asked. This is another
reason why it would be very difficult to lower prices in the Pit. If
the price of beer, both draft and
bottles were reduced by a nickel,
the revenues of the society would
also be reduced by approximately
$23,000. So the next question is
what services presently provided
should be cut? This is not an easy
question to answer.
Look at the budget of the AMS
which appeared in the first issue of
The Ubyssey this September. There
you will see under the title administration a line item called
publication which is currently subsidized to the tune of $40,000. How
about that?

Gears friendly rivals
In reply to Rusung Tan's letter,
"up yours, gears" in last Friday's
Ubyssey, I would like to state that it
was never the EUS's intention to
downgrade the contribution of the
SUS.
Over the past term, we suggested
to various members of your council
that you publish a newsletter to
spread word of upcoming events,
announced the SUS beer garden in
our nEUS letter (because yours
wasn't publishing) had our Red
Sales Manager share his buying
contacts with you (so that you
might offer jackets and other items
at the low prices we can), and issued
your undergraduates an invitation
to enter a team in the chariot race.
As far as the Rickathon goes, the
EUS donated to the cause such as
we could afford (it is not one of our
regular charities), collected donations on behalf of others and contributed five cases of beer to the
society with the largest donation
(and well Rehab's efforts should be
rewarded). As well, the Mechanical
Engineers helped design and build
the special lightweight wheelchair
used for the event.
We realize the problems the SUS
has had in organizing and hope they
will be successful, as we would like
to see friendly rivalry from more
groups on campus. peter Mitchell

'Birds split tour
r
By SCOTT McDONALD
The UBC men's basketball team
returned from a two game road trip
to Calgary with a split which dropped the team into second place in
the Canada West University
Athletic Association.
The 'Birdmen started the trip on
a positive note Friday night by
defeating the University of Calgary
Dinosaurs 75-69.
But Calgary came back the next
night playing brilliant 'ball and
turned back the 'Birds 110-81. This
loss, coupled with a Victoria sweep
over Saskatchewan, dropped UBC
into second place with a 4 and 2
record. Victoria has a 5 and- 1
record and a two point lead over the
'Birds in league standings.
John Doughty led the 'Birds Friday night with 16 points. The top

The UBC swimming and diving
team completed a successful trip to
Washington last weekend. The
men's team defeated Washington
State University and Central
Washington University but lost to
the powerhouse University of Puget
Sound. The women won against
Central Washington but lost narrowly to both Washington State
and Puget Sound. UBC swimmers
who bettered CIAU qualifying
times were: Mike Blondal, Clark
VanDerMye, Jance Blocka, Cathy
Degroot, Julie Rainey and Jane
Koch.
This Saturday there will be a
double-dual meet against the
Universities of Alberta and Victoria
at the UBC Aquatic Centre.

The Thunderette gymnastics
team started the year off well with a
resounding victory in a meet at the
Osborne Complex last weekend
against the Oregon College of
Education and the University of
Alberta. UBC took the top four
places with a total score of 12$.
Oregon college came a distant second with 106 points while the
UofA trailed with 96.
Thunderette Patty Sakaki, 1980
collegiate national champion, was
top individual competitor with 36
out of a possible 40 points. According to coach Alena Branda, "the
team looks strong generally and has
great potential for the nationals this
year." Last year Thunderette gymnasts   were   second    in    Canada
overall.
• *       *
Thunderbird wrestlers won their
second dual meet of the year Friday
with a 28-15 victory over Willamette
University of Salem, Oregon. UBC
winners were Wendall Cornwall
(191 pounds), Lee Blanchard (177
pounds), Avtar Dhillon (167
pounds), Martin Gleave (142
pounds), Steve Demos (134
pounds), Rob Jones (126 pounds)
and Wayne Yeastings (118 pounds).
Coach Craig Delahunt wants it
known that his is looking for two
big, tough heavyweights (220
pounds or over) to accompany the
team to Calgary. Knowledge of
wrestling is optional. Come out to
practice any day this week at 4:30 at
Unit II, Osborne Complex.
Both Thunderbirds and
Thunderettes made it to the finals
of the UBC Invitational Volleyball
Tournament held here last
weekend. The Thunderettes took
the women's portion of the tournament, defeating the Chimos of the
AA division three games to two in
the closely-contested final. Earlier
in the semi-finals the Thunderettes
removed the AA Fossils from competition with three straight wins.
The men's final between the
Thunderbirds and the B.C. Olympics went five games before UBC
went down two games to three. The
'Birds apparently tired themselves
prematurely in" the hard-fought
semi-final against the University of
Victoria. UBC controlled the first
two games of the final, but tired
during the third one and lost the
next three straight to give BCO the
tournament.
scorer for Calgary was Steve Atkins
who had 26.
UBC coach Peter Mullins said
one of the main reasons for his
teams success Friday night was the
strength of his bench.
In particular he singled out Andy
Lockhart as having played a strong
game. Lockhart was five for eight
from the floor and two for four
from the line for 12 points.
The other area which Mullins felt
contributed to the 'Bird victory was
tha amount of points scored from
the foul line. Both teams scored the
same amount of points'from the
floor but the 'Birds were able to
convert more opportunities from
the line. UBC went 17 for 29 while
the Dinosaurs were 11 for 14.
SPORTS
On Saturday night the story was
not UBC's inept play but rather
Calgary's vastly improved performance.
Even though UBC scored more
points Saturday than Friday night,
Calgary still managed to bury them
by shooting an incredible "60 per
cent from the floor and getting 35
points from forward Karl Tilleman.
The top scorers for UBC were
Brad Findlay and Bob Forsyth who
scored 19 and 18 points respectively.
Mullins said UBC missed top
scores Kim O'Leary, who is still
recovering from a facial injury suf
fered before Christmas. Mullins is
hoping O'Leary will be back in time
for next weekend's home games
against the University of Saskatchewan.
The Thunderettes also travelled
to Calgary on the weekend but did
not fare as well as the men.
The women lost both games to
keep their winless streak intact. Friday night they were blown away
45-75 and Saturday night they lost
by a closer score of 50-59. They are
now 0-8 in league play.
The Thunderettes will also be
hosting the University of Saskatchewan thisToming weekend.
Dinos skate home happy
By KENT WESTERBERG
The University of Calgary
Dinosaurs returned home Sunday
morning with four points and a
share of first place in the Canada
West Conference as the Dinos
defeated the UBC Thunderbirds
mens hockey team in overtime
periods in both games held here this
past weekend.
On Friday night the 'Birds gallant
comeback was thwarted in the sudden death overtime period when
Calgary scored and took the first
game 7-6.
U of C overcame a three goal
deficit and then managed to get the
only goal in overtime as the Dinos
defeated the 'Birds by a score of 4-3
on Saturday night.
Calgary's Darren Helasz opened
the scoring Friday evening as the
Dinos jumped to 1-0 lead. But
UBC's Rob Jones evened things up
with his ninth goal in league play
this year on a shot that ringed off
the goal post and went in behind
Calgary goalie Farwell.
The Dino's second goal came
minutes later when Trevor Erhardt
scored his first goal of the year.
Then teammate Rick Williams picked up a short-handed goal to finish
off the scoring in the first period.
Calgary's fourth goal came when
Bill Wilkins let a shot go from the
point that deflected off a UBC stick
and went sailing in behind Paterson. 'Bird Jim McLaughlin scored a
power play goal when the puck
bounced off the post and eluded
Farwell. A minute later Shane Pear-
sail added another goal for Calgary.
UBC's Jay Rumley scored his
first goal of the evening, while killing a penalty, but Calgary bounced
back when Alvan Szott scored.
With only 57 seconds left in the
third period, UBC's Bill Holowaty
slammed in a power play goal. Then
Paterson out of the net, Jay Rumley
scored his second and third goals of
the night for UBC and with just 7
seconds left in the period the 'Birds
had tied the game.
Neither team scored in the first
overtime period. Then with 33
seconds gone in the sudden death
period, Shane Pearsall picked up a
loose puck in front of the UBC goal
and made his second goal for
Calgary, the Dinos winning 7-6.
Saturday night the 'Birds Bill
Holoway scored three goals and
gave UBC* a commanding 3-0 lead.
Calgary didn't get on the
scoreboard until Cal Helasz scored
towards the end of the second
period.
UBC did not score again and
Calgary sent the game into overtime
on goals by Bill Wilkins and Rick
Laycock. Cal Helasz scored the only goal in the overtime period to
give Calgary a 4-3 victory and the
series.
UBC has two wins and three
losses in league play and is currently
in last place in Canada West. This
Friday the 'Birds fly to Saskatoon

See, it's like this.

So, you see, I'm asking to have it

EMPLOYMENT
QUEBEC
Here's an opportunity for you to gain a better understanding of the
culture and customs of the Province of Quebec and to become more
fluent in the French language, through summer employment in the
Provincial Government of Quebec. The British Columbia Ministry of
Labour is accepting applications now for the 1981 British Columbia-
Quebec Student Exchange Employment Program. Through this Program,
job opportunities are provided within the Quebec Government for
university students from British Columbia.
To be eligible for this Program, you must have a working knowledge of
the French language, have lived in British Columbia for one year, be a
Canadian citizen and be a student registered full-time at the University of
British Columbia, Simon Fraser University, or the University of Victoria.
These jobs will involve a minimum of 13 weeks work during the months
of May through August, 1981. Salaries will be determined according to the
student salary scale of the Province of Quebec — the 1980 monthly salary
scale was $788.00 for students who had completed first and second year,
$892.00 for students who had completed third and fourth year and
$1,028.00 for graduate students.
Transportation to and from Quebec will be paid by the British Columbia
Government. However, it will be the responsibility of each student
accepted in the Program to pay for their own accommodation.
Information will be provided by the Government of Quebec regarding
accommodation in Quebec.
Students wishing to apply should complete a Ministry of Labour Youth
Job Application Form and British Columbia-Quebec Student Exchange
Employment Program Questionnaire.
Applications and questionnaires are available from the Canada
Employment Centre on Campus, the Ministry of Labour Youth Referral
Service in Victoria, or either of the following British Columbia Youth

Hikes hit Quebec
MONTREAL (CUP) — International students studying in Quebec
are the latest victims of government
imposed fee increases.
A spokesperson for the ministry
of education said the hike will "at
the least," bring Quebec differential fees to the level paid by visa
students in Ontario.
Fees for visa students in Ontario
range from $1,500 to $2,118.
Quebec's international students
have paid $1,500 per year since 1978
when differentials were introduced.
The increase will be introduced
gradually over the next three to five
years.
The ministry of education
spokesperson said most university
administrations in the province approved the increase on the condition that it be carried out in stages.
The source also said the ministry
hopes Canadian universities will
establish a uniform tuition rate for
international students.
And while fees increase for
foreign students, a Montreal
university has been accused of accepting unqualified foreign
students.
Charges that Concordia University is accepting students with an inadequate knowledge of English
have been denied by university administrators.
The accusations were made in an
article in the commercial Montreal
newspaper Le Devoir Jan. 6. It
stated that Concordia is accepting
students who do not possess an adequate knowledge of English for
university level courses and who
might otherwise go to a French
language university.
Another Le Devoir article on
Jan. 9 said the university's admission standards are too lenient.
"Foreign students have been, and
continue to be, formally accepted
by Concordia for some full time
regular programs of university
studies at the same time as they
Autonomy

degree of conflict of interests
exists," Williamson said. "It is
hard to cover the student union well
when they have the power to pull
away your funding at a moment's
notice.
"Student newspapers need control of their funding if only to stop
undue outside pressure from being
applied."
The student union at the University of Winnipeg has been very
agreeable towards the Uniter's
autonomy proposal, Williamson
added.
The Manitoban, however, may
face problems in its final negotiations with the student union, Coyne
said.
The student union wants a
number of conditions placed on the
newspaper's autonomy but these
conditions have yet to be stated, he
said.
If these conditions are acceptable
to the Manitoban staff, the
newspaper will have its autonomy
by May, Coyne said.
Oops
A newsbrief in Friday's Ubyssey
incorrectly stated that club drinking
limits had been shortened to 11:30
p.m. by student council. In fact,
council maintained the closing hour
of 11:30 p.m. for club functions,
with an option to extend the bar
closing until midnight.
The Ubyssey would also like to
apologize to the staff of UBC
Reports for implying in Friday's
issue that the new eight page tabloid
format for the administration
newsletter will waste more money
then the old four page tabloid format.
must enroll in elementary English
courses," the article said.
The article added students may
continue in their credit program
regardless of whether or not they
have successfully completed the
elementary English courses.
According to David Allnutt,
Concordia public relations director,
"if you can't score 500 or more on
the TOESL (teaching of English as
a second language) or equivalent,
you are refused admission to credit
courses. Students who score between 500 and 600 are required to
take English as a second language
course in order to upgrade their
English to university level."
Students who do not achieve the
500 score may take non-credit
courses in the continuing education
department to improve their
English to levels required for a
credit program.
According to Allnutt an inquiry
may lead to a slight increase in
result standards.
"The question will be should the
test result standards be made
higher," he said.
The Le Devoir article also stated
many students come to Quebec
universities because the costs are
lower than the U.S. and the United
Kingdom.
"It is a political issue related to
Bill 101. This is one of the undertones of the article," said Allnutt.
Houses for sale
From page 1
Haynes said. "Earth House has
been inspected by an electrical inspector. The sewer is approved and
the water is hooked up."
Despite a two year delay while
waiting for response from the housing department, Haynes is still op-
tomistic about completing the
houses. "I would move in there
tomorrow and finish them off," he
said.
Haynes' proposal hinges on his
planned use of rentals to pay for
costs of completion.
Davis found that proposal unacceptable. "The university doesn't
want to be in a situation where we
don't have enough control." He
said the university would be willing
to sell the two houses to Haynes, if
they were moved off campus.
Davis would not say that the
housing department will demolish
the houses, but he has asked for
bids on the demolition. "We want
to be prepared," he said.
The disagreement between resident groups and the housing department is centred around the extent
and cost of work to be completed
or the solar houses. Robert Ree
contends the buildings could be
completed as conventionally-heated
structures at reasonable cost.
"They are not structurally unsound," he said. Co-president of
ACTA, Gail Bexton, added that the
housing department does not seem
to think the houses are structurally
sound.
In November Davis told CBC
Radio the solar houses were shoddi-
ly built and would have to be torn
down. He also mentioned a
misaligned beam as an indication of
the unprofessional standards of
their construction.
"The situation with Mr. Haynes
is rather delicate," Davis said Monday. "He said that I had libeled
him."

you rewrite*
Certain writers of 'Tween Classes
forms will have their private parts
publically removed noon Tuesday in
the SUB concourse.
The only way for these writers to
avoid this gruesome fate is to improve their 'Tween Classes writing
style, especially in the area of time.
For instance, not once this year
has the Pre-Med Society stated the
time its speakers will discuss nutrition or whatever breath-taking topic
is on hand. The Ubyssey has always
assumed noon is the time these
events take place, but it would
make things easier if, on every
form, the exact time was stated.
In this edition, the Sailing Club,
the Sports Car Club and the
Newman Catholic Centre should all
be ashamed of themselves for making life miserable at The Ubyssey by
forgetting to mention the times
their events take place. Again,
we've had to assume noon.
And then there's Intramurals,
who can't seem to figure out that
they can only get a maximum of six
Hot flashes
days  advance   notice   in   'Tween
Classes.
Another weird inclination of
many 'Tween Classes form fillers is
the desire to use all sorts of obscure
abreviations to describe their club.
We like common abreviations like
Aquasoc to be used, but don't expect us to figure out what the Mar.
Dert. Org. is.
In short, keep your 'Tween
Classes forms accurate yet brief,
legible and easy to understand.

good at them), but skiliful innuendo is presently the only way to
gauge women's romantic interest.
Before crying harassment, attractive females who get too much attention should remember their un-
pretty sisters who often get too little
— and do not want to discourage
men.
I have no wish to deny that sexual
blackmail in the workplace may actually occur. Its victims have every
right to raise hell, as do victims of
physical assault. But in their self-
righteous zeal, feminists neglect to
make clear the difference, so vital
to men, between "harassing" a
woman and just approaching and
courting her. I also resent the indiscriminate use of "harassment"
for everything from clumsy innuendos to good old dirty jokes, or
harmless things like lustful glances.
It is true that some men persist in
courtship despite a brush-off. If
women could be depended upon to
make their own advances whenever
they are interested, men would take
the answer "no" much more
seriously than now, when half of
the time«it means "maybe — if you
try hard enough." But if women remain hypocritically ambiguous
toward male advances without risking any of their own, the search for
relationships will remain a torturous game of chance, with some
champion scorers and a lot of losers
left by the wayside, lonesome and
humiliated.     •
Women have never been in
stronger position to shake off
restrictive sex roles. Intimidated by
anti-harassment propaganda, men
often let contact opportunities slip,
for fear of appearing obtrusive. But
inside they harbor hope, or perhaps
illusions, that a woman will break
the tense silence.   .
Even unpretty women, whom
romance so often eluded, can now
reach out to men with spontaneous
warmth and friendliness. Chasing
the dpposite sex will, of course, remain the kind of adventure that few
men would want to miss, and I do
not scoff at it; but I think the time
has come for the thrills of this
adventure — as well as its risks —
to be fairly shared between women
and men.
