Student aid applications
up as cabinet delays decision
on reducing individual grants
"Drown in debt," says graffitti
scrawled outside the UBC student
awards office.
Inside, a frenzied awards office
staff reply to enquiries and hand
out still more applications for
financial aid.
But students applying for student
aid now will not find out how much
they get for a month, and many
who got their applications in by the
July 2 deadline have yet to receive
their financial aid.
"Our understanding is that
students who got their loan applications in on time will get their
documents   by   the   end   of   the
week," said awards director Byron
Hender Monday.
But when documents arrive,
students only receive the loan portion of their financial aid package.
The non-repayable provincial grant
funds have yet to be allocated by
the Soc al Credit cabinet, leaving
students' financial position for the
year in doubt and eliminating the
chance for overall financial planning.
crfspi 1,'— ;W^>
More than likely, when grants are
allocated they will contain across-
the-board rationing for all applicants according to Dean Goard,
the university ministry's university
program director. Everyone will get
lower grants, he said.
The cabinet allocated $12.6
million for grants said Goard, and
despite increased applications, it is
unlikely the cabinet will increase
For students, it means either increased debt because more
assistance will be in the form of
loans or, if a student is already
receiving    the   maximum   loan
allowance of about $1,800 simply
less money.
Hender said the majority of
students applying to the B.C. Student Assistance Program will be affected by lack of funds since almost
every student receives a grant portion in addition to the loan.
The immediate effect cf the
cabinet delaying the grant decision
is students will not be able to plan
their finances for the entire year
said Hender. Grants are usually not
dispersed until the second term.
Loans may be increased for
students not already at the loan ceil-

f  jobs are
y-J short,

poor paying
The lack of summer jobs for
students this year was "disappointing," a UBC employment
counsellor said Friday.
Last summer 1,729 students obtained full time summer jobs
through the UBC Canada Employment Centre, while this summer only 1,142 students were able to do so,
CEC manager David Bernard said.
"We probably had 4,000 people
go through our office over the summer," said Bernard. "Certainly
many more UBC students used our
services than registered." The CEC
had 2,000 people on its active file,
he said.
The difficulty students faced in
finding summer work was largely
due io major slumps in the B.C.
economy's main employment industries. "Construction, tourism,
and clerical work supplied little or
no employment," Bernard said.
"Those are three areas of major
concern to us."
Employment opportunities were
also down in the mining and
forestry industries, he said,
although "technically skilled" people were still being hired.
Even when students did find
work they faced other problems.
"The jobs were shorter in length
and the pay levels tended to be
lower," said Bernard. The average
wage was $6 to $7 per hour, he said.
"As the summer passed employers
realized they could get students for
a fairly nominal amount."
Finding lasting work was also a
problem, Bernard said. "Many
students were laid off in the middle
of the summer," he said. Like full
time jobs, part time jobs were more
difficult to obtain this summer than
last, said Bernard. In 1981, 635
students found part time work
through the UBC CEC, while this
year only 494 students were able to
do so, he said.
Due to the lack of jobs th,s summer, students were more wiiling to
take casual jobs lasting less than
five days, said Bernard. This summer 159 students took casual jobs
through the CEC, while last summer the number was insignificant
and the CEC did not keep figures
on it. "We didn't get near a; many
(in 1981) as we got this year," he
said. "Now that the volume got so
high that it became a significant
figure, we changed it and made a
separate category."
Asked about the p-ospeets for
student summer employment next
summer, Bernard replied, "it's
about eight months too early to
The Employment Opportunities
Program grant to UBC was also cut
back drastically this summer, said
director  of student  services  Dick
Shirran Last year UBC received
$1.3 million, while this year only
$640,000 was granted.
Although the amount was less
than ir 1981, approximately the
sarned number of stjdents were
hired, said Calvin Shantz, regional
supervisor of the B.C. ministry of
labor, in 1981, 613 students got
jobs at UBC under the EOP; this
year th; number was 535, Shantz
said. But EOP grants to the private
sector increased over last summer,
he said.
In Ji.iy the board of governors
supplemented the EOP at UBC by
5250,000, allowing students'
salaries to be increased to $800 per
month from S600, for the two
month ong jobs. Another $250,000
has been earmarked by .he board
for the creation of part-time jobs
for students this academic year,
Shirran said.
UBC enrollment tops
25,000 as students
are left out of work
UBC's enrolment is on the increase this year, but no official
figures have been released yet.
Information officer Jim Banham
predicted 25,000 full and part time
students will be attending classes in
the winter session at UBC, a 4.7 per
cent increase over last year.
"It's impossible to say what
UBC's enrolment will be at this moment, b'Jt there is a considerable increase,'' he said.
Banham said the two areas in
which enrolment has increased the
most are in first year programs and
the unclassifieds. He cited the current economic situation as the chief
factor for the enrolment increase.
"First year students had a tough
time finding jobs over the summer
and many probably decided to go to
university rather than keep looking.
Unclassified students who already
have degrees can't find jobs they're
interested in," he said.
By the end of August, 28,600
authorization to register forms were
issued, 1,000 more than were issued
at the same time last year, Banham
said. Three thousand to 3,500 probably will not show up, but UBC's
student population will still increase
substantially, he added.
Banham said UBC's enrolment
usually increases one to two per
cent each year, but this year it could
increase up to five per cent.
Not all administration officials
are as optimistic, however.
Associate registrar John Piercy
predicted enrolment will increase
only two to three per cent from last
And assistant registrar Patricia
Angus, who is in charge of records
and registration, said the same
number of students passed through
War Memorial Gym this year as did
last year and enrolment probably
will not increase greatly.
She added concrete figures will be
available by the middle of next
week and official figures by Dec. 1.
Norman Watt, director of extra
sessional studies, predicted enrolment in evening courses will increase.
"It has increased significantly
every year and I predict it will be up
this vear as well" he said.

The chemical waste disposal
facility is not the only place where
bombs have been going off recently
(page 9).
Take a look at UBC engineering
instructor Alan Sleeves, who was
charged with unlawful possession
of explosives this summer in Edmonton.
It seems he was trying to
"foster" his relationship with his
newly found love, Garnell Boris, by
sending her ex-lover a birthday present, according to the judge. An inspiration to all prank-loving gears,
he stuffed a bomb into a colorfully
wrapped box.
You can guess the poor victim's
surprise when his present blew up in
his face. He was no worse for wear,
but it threw "the fear of God" into
the terror-filled complainant.
Judge Dimos wasn't that upset
with the two, and the fun couple
were each slapped on the wrist with
$1,500 fines.
AI's back at UBC this winter,
where his boundless creativity can
continue to be tapped for the
benefit of all his students. Just lock
up the ammo, huh? Page 2

No housing for all,
but outlook better
The disappointed looks on
students' faces told the story.
About 60 students looking for on-
campus accomodation gathered
outside the Ponderosa office Friday, only to hear from residence
director Bob Frampton that "there
was only one vacancy, and it has
been filled."
As classes began Monday, an
estimated 1,100 students were
without housing. But the situation
is a far cry from talks two years ago
of "tent cities" being set up or the
possibility last September of 3,000
students being homeless, says
Frampton. "Students are finding
off-campus housing," he says.
However, better off-campus
housing prospects are of little comfort to students looking for on-
campus accommodation. With
1,100 people, mostly men, on the
waiting lists for residences, some
students say they are getting increasingly frustrated, despite
Frampton's assurances that the
waiting lists are "only theoretical."
"This is my second year on the
Totem (Park) and (Place) Vanier
waiting list," says Neil Kishi,
engineering 2. "I was no. 826 on a
waiting list last year and never got
in. I'm no. 295 this year."
Claims of cheaper housing off-
campus mean little to a science 4
student, who is also on a waiting
list. Although most rents are lower,
he says, some landlords are not
above taking advantage of students
desperate for housing at the beginning of the academic year.
"I live in a basement suite near
Broadway and MacDonald, and
pay $250 for a small room," he
says. "There are four rooms in the
basement, and all four are occupied
by students. The landlord is getting
$1,000 for the basement?' without
ensuring privacy for the residents,
he says. 'It's really bad."
The situation is worse for men
students than it is for women looking for single on-campus housing.
As of Monday, 800 students on
residence waiting lists were men.
There were 300 women on the lists
for single accomodation.
Although rents off-campus have
stabilized, residence costs rose an
average of 17 per cent this year.
Room and board for single accomodation at Totem Park and
Place Vanier residences runs at
about $2,600. A room without
board at Walter Gage costs almost
Off-campus housing can range
up to $750 a month for two
bedroom suites, depending on the
area and condition of the suite, with
one-bedrooms averaging below
$500 and rooms in co-op housing
around $200, says Frampton.
Students looking for on-campus
accomodation will eventually be
placed he says. The waiting lists are
"only theoretical" because those
who applied for residences may
already have found housing
elsewhere but haven't notified the
housing office.
Housing problems at other
Lower Mainland campus are
minimal compared to previous
years, says Frampton.
Reduced ad projections
force paper to cut
Thursday edition
Ubyssey Cutbacks Reporter
A slump in the advertising market has forced The Ubyssey to cut
its publishing schedule to twice-weekly from thrice weekly this year.
Ubyssey staff member Craig Brooks said Monday that a decrease
of 35 per cent has been predicted in local advertising revenue, due to
the current recession. This, coupled with a $13,000 deficit from a
summer newspaper, led to the decision, he said.
"We received a 10 per cent increase in our subsidy from the AMS
this year, but we'll still be short about $60,000," Brooks said.
The elimination of the Thursday paper will take care of most of
£) short
few and
doct paying
the deficit, with other savings being made by trimming research and
other budget items, he added.
The reduction in local advertising was predicted following a survey
of other community newpapers, most of which reported advertising
revenues drops ranging from 15 to 50 per cent.
Staff member Shaffin Shariff said it is hoped that thrice-weekly
publication will resume as soon as the economy gets better.
Shariff said individual issues will probably be larger and steps shall
be taken to ensure there isn't a substantial service decrease to
students. But students should be aware of the cut in issues and the
current recession's impact on the media, he said.
Ubyssey staff member Brian Jones added the change would probably benefit the paper. "We can concentrate more now on news
features and analysis. We have to look at the positive aspects of this
INTERESTING PROSPECTS, these mortals. Is that Jill I see in the registration line, and Jack wondering about
where he's going to sleep tonight because of housing problems? This herd of wanderers must be that small,

mythical decree called a university degree. But then what do I know, anyway? I've been dead since Darwin.
RCMP unable to capture UEL
attacker,as three women raped
The university detachment of the
RCMP is warning women not to
walk alone in the endowment lands
after three women were raped there
this summer.
Two of the women were jogging
alone and one was walking home
when the early evening attacks occurred, according to RCMP corporal Greg Upton. "I think people
shouldn't go in those trails alone. In
pairs, its pretty safe. But I
wouldn't go in there aftei dark," he
Police are looking for an 18 to 20
year-old .vhite male, described as
being abcut five foot nine, of slim
build, with brown hair and long
face, said Upton. The altacker has
been seen riding an old, black ten
speed bicycle. "Unless he's an absolute moron he's changed his appearance" said Upton.'' It's been
well publicized, but it's hard to say
what will happen."
Upton said the maze of isolated
trails in the UEL made police patrol
of the area difficult. "The problem
is we're a small detachment. We're
not open 24 hours a day. If we're
tied up, we can't get there." There
have been no significant increases
this year in the number of reported
campus rapes, he added.
Marie, a volunteer on the Rape
Relief crisis line, said Rapt: Relief
RAPIST ... If seen, call 224-1322
was aware of the rapes on the Endowment Lands, and has received
numerous calls from women who
are concerned about their safety on
campus   and   in  the  Endowment
Lands. "Women want safety," she
said. "It's up to the police to provide that. Even if it means setting
up patrols on foot, they have a
responsibility to do it."
According to Canadian police
statistics, only one out of every ten
rapes is reported. Marie said that
the number of rapes on campus and
in the UEL might be much higher
than assumed.
Safety for women is much more
involved than simply catching this
particular rapist, said Marie. "It's
not only a matter of this man being
caught. It's a matter of demanding
a safe place and demanding that
males change. It's a woman's right
to walk where she wants to, no matter what hour of the day or night,
without harassment," she said.
A man convicted of rape earlier
this year was sentenced to 13 years
in prison after a previous series of
rapes in the UEL. He was arrested
after being spotted by three 12 year-
old girls who recognized the man
from sketches and descriptions of
the suspect which were posted in the
Arbitration award under review
by Socred -appointed committee
A decision to be made later this
week by a provincial government-
appointed committee will either
uphold or turn down UBC faculty's
recent nine per cent salary increase.
The arbitration award, which includes another three per cent for
"career progress," is presently
under review by the compensation
stabilization program committee 'to
determine if it is within the (provincial government's) guidelines," Andrew Brockett, faculty association
executive officer, said Friday.
In July the provincial government introduced a plan to control
the wages of public sector
employee;;. The CSP committee's
task is to decide whether the agreement reached between the UBC administration and the faculty conforms to this plan, said Brockett.
Brockett would not comment any
further or the matter while it is still
before the committee. "We have an
understanding with the university
that we won't comment cn the mat
ter," said Brockett. "It would be
inappropriate for us to comment at
the moment, particularly while the
matter is before the
Jennefer Crawford, assistant to
CSP committee chair Ed Peck, also
refused to comment on the issue.
All she would say was that the settlement was "submitted shortly
after arbitration," and was now
under review.
Students face 'deregistration'
after classes fail to compute
First there was pacification. Then
came disinformation. Now students
at the University of Victoria are encountering 'deregistration."
Up to 30 second year computing
science students may be out of their
classes soon as a result of a goof uncovered by the department.
Computing science department
requires that students below a
B-minus average can not enrol in second year classes. The 30 students
involved apparently did not meet
the requirement.
Department chair John Muziv is
at a loss to explain why students
were admitted in the first place. "I
don't know how this happened,"
he said.
Students who arrive for class will
be asked to leave the course, or
"deregister," said Muzio.
Meanwhile, at the UBC, computer science students are being put
on a waiting list for classes because,
the department is enforcing stringent entrance requirements
without previous warning. Apparently, programs previously
scheduled for their time slots are no
longer available for some students. Page 4

Ubyssey staff confused but earnest
Welcome to The Ubyssey
newspaper. The campus
newspaper at the University of
B.C. that used to come out
three times a week and inform
students about what is going on
in their community. Now,
because of these hard
economic times, the paper will
come out only twice each week.
Some on this campus applaud the fact that The Ubyssey
has shrunk in size. Too often
the staff have heard complaints
that the paper is full of left-wing
propaganda and that it doesn't
have enough sports. We've
heard that the paper is unfair
and    doesn't   represent   the
students on this campus. We've
heard that there is not enough
campus news.
But the newspaper staff
defends its position that every
word appearing in the paper in
some way is connected to the
university community and now
The Ubyssey faces a tough
decision. Just when more than
ever a strong alternative voice is
needed, the paper will have less
space to challenge and write
about what is going on at this
The staff at the Ubyssey,
issue to issue, will have to
decide what its priorities are.
That,  you  can  be  sure,   is a
challenge that the staff will not
take lightly. And when people
don't like what is printed The
Ubyssey as always will be ready
to defend its position to the
The Ubyssey staff, indeed the
paper itself is a political entity.
Not everyone will agree with the
position and content of the
It is worth noting how the
decision of what to print in the
paper is made. It is a simple process. Each year people
volunteer to work on The
Ubyssey. It is those people who
collectively and democratically
decide what goes in the paper.
Hold tight and squeeze slowly
A few corrections to Inside UBC.
First, there are lines out of order
in the birth control section. Partners may find it hard to firmly hold
the top of the penis after ejaculation in order to hold in semen. This
is not necessary if the condom is used properly.
Second, after weekend experimentation, I have found that
balancing services against political
activity remains a dilemna not only
after a mickey of scotch but also
after a twenty-sixer. Next weekend I
move on to 40 pounders to see if it
still holds true. But one thing that is
true is copy editing and alcohol
don't mix. Witness Inside UBC.
Third, despite the operating
hours in the ad on page 45, the Pit
will be open for more than a half
hour Monday to Thursday and one
and a half hours on Friday and
Saturday. Yes the Pit is open until 2
a.m. this term Friday and Saturday.
There are no doubt many other
errors in the book. As the principle
copy editor and proof reader, I take
full responsibility.
There is one serious omission in
the Calendar of Activities. All the
graphics are from back issues of
The Ubyssey. If there are any
graphic artists out there, join The
Ubyssey. Then maybe in five to ten
years a handbook editor will rip off
your art work for a cheap, quick
bunch of graphics. Sorry Verne, et
all, but thanks.
Finally, a special thanks to those
who handed out the handbook in
War Memorial gym during registration, and to Dave Frank for coordinating the effort. After a gruelling summer when burnout has set in
that is the hardest job to finish.

Alleged Inside UBC Editor

important criteria the staff holds

don't realize is that the events
that go on in El Salvador, for example, and around the world
are related to what goes on at
The paper covers these
events because more often than
not, the accounts presented
carry a different perspective
than is found in Time magazine
or the Vancouver Sun. The
Ubyssey takes as its responsibility the task of informing its
readers of alternative perspectives.

events that, although they may
not happen on campus nevertheless concern the academic

The Ubyssey will continue to
write about the women's movement, gay and native rights,
about the poverty-stricken and
others who are exploited or

of the structure of society. The

academic community, the
possibility and necessity of
change should always be advanced.

it is. But the sports page is indicative of the way things run
around here. Very few English

that a decent page gets run

The champagne sparkled madly in the sunlight, streamers flew overboard in gay abandon,
passengers eyed one another thoughtfully, searching for potential shipboard romances, and
seasickness victims. Captain Muriel Draaisma strutted the deck, welcoming oncoming
guests. Arnold Hedstrom, nervously clutching Keith Baldey's arm, insisted on inspecting the
lifeboats before agreeing to sail. Charles Campbell, veteran of many stormy seas, sniggered
unsympathetically. Pat Macleod brushed past him quickly, anxious to see that her poodle
Glen Sanford's accommodation were satisfactory. Jack Tieleman pushed his aging brother
Bill's wheelchair aboard, and sought out the activities director, Sarah Cox, to see about
potential snuffleboard facilities. Steve Wisenthal and Rick Katz immediately wanted to get in
on the game, and fell into an animated conversation with Bill about shuffle-wrist action. Chris
Wong and Victor Wong were desperately trying to make it clear to Emilie Smith and Joy
Taylor, that they weren't acquainted, let alone related. Doug Schmidt, overwhelmed by baggage, tripped over Olivier Moreau, who was already dozing in a deck chair. Shaffin Shariff
rolled out the red carpet, and Kelley Burke, who was desperately afraid that someone would
notice she was in no way connected with the royal family, broke a bottle of Dom Perignon
over Craig Brooks's head, in a case of mistaken identity, and the formalities were complete.
Brian Jones, perched in the crow's next, shook his head dubiously, but it was too late. The
good ship Ubyssey had embarked on another voyage. Tuesday, September 14,1982

end its policy of selling pornography.
As a member of UBC faculty, I
share in the responsibility for
creating an environment where
human dignity is safeguarded, and
where all students' higher natures
can flourish. I therefore object to
the display and sale of material
which degrades women and exploits
them for profit.
I also have a duty to protect my
women students against such
stimuli to the sexual abuse of
women on campus, and against
harsh reminders that even on campus women are not free of sexual
objectification and humiliation.
As a bookstore customer, I object to being forced to see
spreadeagled and commercialized
women's bodies every time I enter
the bookstore. As a woman, I am
no longer willing to be distressed
and sickened by the sale of pornography in my place of work. I
would like to point out that for
large numbers of women such feelings of distress are no; merely
fleeting, but linger all day to interfere with work efficiency and
I do hope you will nol wish to
perpetuate the bookstore's compliance in the creation of this problem and that the magazines
responsible (notably Penthouse and
Playboy) will be removed urgently.
Josephine Evans,
lecturer, Dept. of
Curriculum and Instruction
Mr. Donovan showed me your
memorandum of August 7th on the
subject of "selling pornography".
Ms. Evans, I respect and understand your viewpoint.
As a bookseller for the past 29
years (and as a campus bookseller
for the past 16 of those years) I have
often had to listen to people who
disagree with some book or
magazine that I was selling. I
believe I have always listened
carefully and respectfully to
criticisms political, philosophical,
moral, and societal. I was sued on
one occasion, and, at another time
(at a University) threatened with
physical violence over a book which
set out a polical point of view contrary to that of the person who confronted me.
As accommodating and pacific as
I am by nature, however, there is
one principle that I will never compromise as a bookseller. I oppose
censorship in all its forms, and I am
sure that all thinking people,
especially in a university, would
have to agree with me on that. I
would never presume to tell people
what they should read: still less
would I ever presume to tell intelligent people what they should
not read.
I shall study this matter with
respect to your description of people "being forced to see spreadeagled and commercialized women's
bodies" to see if there is something
we can do about that aspect.
John K. Hedgecock
director, bookstore
The concluding statement. . .
Thank you for your memo of
August 11, which demonstrates that
you are a man concerned with principle and desirous of being
reasonable. This gives me hope, for
I am appealing to you further on
the basis of both principle and
As I believe your initial response
was based upon an admirable lack
of familiarity with pornography, I
think it is important for me to now
clarify the nature of the material I
am asking to have removed from
the bookstore. This is also central
to the matter of balancing the principle of free choice with other high
I am definitely not suggesting the
repression of honest materials
about human eroticism and sexuality, nor asking that you prevent men
who want pornography from buying it elsewhere. I am talking about
the University not supporting a vast
The condition of the changing
room floor of the Aquatic center
should be improved for the health
of students. Lifeguards could wash
down the floors more often to prevent the spread of foot diseases.
If the floors become too slippery
then some sort of floor mats should
be acquired to prevent falls.
However a more suitable floor type
should have been selected in the
first place.

The AMS Ombudsoffice of UBC
is open for business. And our
business is you, the wandering, confused student who has a particular
problem or complaint which you
want resolved but don't know how.
Though we give you no promises,
the AMS Ombudsoffice does have
university contacts that in the past
have proven very willing to ensure
fair and humane treatment of UBC
students. Thus, we may solve your
particular problem in a more efficient manner than the route that
you may choose.

system of profiteering from
materials which directly destroy the
right of all people to the dignity of
their own personhood and an end
to all forms of violence and
degradation of women on campus.
I am talking of magazines which
foster woman-hating and woman-
Along with the other pornographic magazines which you
display in the bookstore, Penthouse
and Playboy consistently present
male sexuality as inherently devoted
to dominating, using and abusing
female bodies, which are never
presented either respectfully or even
realistically, but are carefully
packaged like cuts of meat in a
supermarket, presented as bits of
anatomy or consumable objects
devoid of any humanity,
autonomy, feelings or needs of their
This is done not to meet any
natural human needs, but to foster
a multibillion dollar industry which
profits from marketing women's
bodies as commodites for male sexual use. Because people's need for a
trusting and reciprocal intimacy
with a loving equal cannot be controlled and marketed for profit, men
must be taught lies about women
and human sexuality. This
deliberately creates an appetite for
the degraded type of sexuality
which can be controlled and
The magazines are full of images
of women being stripped,
displayed, forced, bound, beaten or
otherwise hurt and humiliated. For
example, one issue of Penthouse
which you sold ran an article entitled, "She's Bound to Adore You"
informing the reader that modern,
"liberated" women prefer to be
tied up and raped. Recurrent
themes of the magazines you sell are
that women mean "yes" when they
say "no," that we wish to be forced
and degraded in sex, that it is normal for male sexual pleasure to require females to be subservient to
anything and everything males
desire, and that the appropriate
male response to unwilling females
is binding, gagging or punishing
them into submission.
You are not yourself the object of
these images and ideas, but I trust
that will not prevent you from putting yourself in our shoes, and
agreeing with me that no good can
come from providing the pornography empire with an outlet for
this inhuman stuff right in the middle of our university community.
I would ask you to lock for a moment at some of the effects that
supporting this multibillion dollar
hate industry has on us. Of course,
it would be impossible to ever
establish direct causal links between, say, your selling a pornographic magazine, and a rape or
sexual liarrassment incident on
campus; things are rarely that simple. But constant exposure to
women's degradation unquestionably normalizes it.
We can also say with certainty
that violence against women and
contempt for women are at the very
least condoned by it; for the
University to display this stuff
publicly at its own Bookstore
amounts to providing social sanction for the treatment of women it
perpetrates. And it certainly does
not help the men who read it, for it
has the calculated effect of making
them lose the ability to perceive the
humanity of women, or even their
own human needs. Indeed, it is not
possible to point to ANY benefit to
humanity resulting from the
university's participation to any
degree in the pornographers' vast
money-making and woman-abusing
Many people, like you, are instinctively repelled by the idea of
"censorship" when such high ideals
are preventing political repression
are at stake. I would not dream of
asking you to betray your
adherence to any principle which
protects humanity against harm.
But I'm sure you will agree we must
go beyond merely attaching the
label of high principle to
something. Do you think total
freedom of expression should be
given to libelous statements? False
and misleading advertising? Portraying Ihe sexual use of children?
Inciting racial hatred and violence?
The principle of freedom of expression is of course crucial for protecting things we value in society;
but it would be senseless to point
mechanically to the principle in all
circumstances without evaluating
the benefits and costs to humanity
of what is involved in alternative
choices. That would be analagous
to allowing an animal to suffer unnecessarily on the grounds that
"Thou shall not kill" is an important principle; in this case, putting it
out of its misery is the greater good
— in th; same way that not allow
ing woman-hating and woman-
abusing magazines to pollute the
university is the greater good.
I would like to quote Justice
Warren Burger on the principle of
censorship in the context of pornography: "To equate the free and
robust exchange of ideas and
political debate with the commercial exploitation of obscene
materials demeans the grand conception of the First Amendment
and its high purpose in the historic
struggle for freedom. It is a misuse
of the great guarantee of free
speech and free press."
So while I appreciate your belief
in the principle of opposing cen-
shorship per se, I suggest that this
instance requires a balance with
other principles. Am I right in
assuming that you share my belief
in the high principle that all people
have the right to freedom from
degradation and abuse? That it is
intolerable to allow the untrammelled contempt for one group of people io be broadcast? If so, I expect
you will be willing to weigh your
desire to give pornography a
marketing outlet with youir desire to
protect the rights of campus
Finally, I would like to point out
that what is or is not sold at the
bookstore inevitably involves
employees' judgments and choices.
Your memo portrays you as simply
declining to interfere in some
natural process, which is not the
case. Having myself once been
responsible for ordering at a
bookstore, I am quite aware that
personal knowledge and beliefs
unavoidably influence stock selec
tion; indeed, one evaluates a
bookstore manager on the basis of
how far he or she makes selections
of merchandise which best reflect
the needs and interests of its
clientele. I believe it is not possible
to show that selling and displaying
this stuff serves anyone's needs or
best interests.
In my first memo I pointed out
how damaging it was to women on
campus to have this revolting stuff
forced upon them. I believe I have
now given you broader grounds
upon which to evaluate the matter,
and I hope you will now decide to
discontinue your practice of selling
degrading magazines on university
property. That small proportion of
people on campus who wish to support the pornography industry are
perfectly free to do so elsewhere;
there is no need at all to force
distress on campus women.
As employees of UBC, you and I
both have a responsibility to promote human dignity and wellbeing
on campus; you would be hurting
no-one and breaking no high principles if you exercised your professional judgment in favour of
discontinuing the bookstore's participation in the exploitation and
degradation of women.
In essence, I am not proposing
censorship. I am simply asserting
that the University has no justification for giving support and social
respectability to a demonstrably
harmful industry, and that your job
is to make responsible choices for
the good of the university community as a whole.

Banks make loans more difficult
OTTAWA (CUP) — As student
aid offices across Canada are being
swamped with record numbers of
applications, some students are
returning empty-handed after going
to the bank to negotiate their loans.
None of Canada's five major
banks is happy with their interest
rate on student loans, and two have
made major policy changes that are
making student loans more difficult
to obtain.
The Toronto Dominion has
limited the amount of money it will
allocate to student loans to a 10 per
cent increase from last year.
A Queen's University student
who was refused a loan at a TD
branch in Kingston was told the
bank had reached its limit and
could issue no more loans.
The TD and the Bank of Montreal are limiting loans to students
who have held an accouni with
them for the past six months. This ■
will particularly affect first year and
out of town students.
The Band of Montreal is also centralizing its loans to one branch in
each city, often locate miles from
campus and student residences.
Meanwhile, other banks are worried that students, unable :o get
loans at the TD or Bank of Montreal will turn to them.
The Royal Bank stated in a recent
letter to :he Canadian Federation of
Students that "with restrictions
recently announced by some
leaders, we do not wish to be involuntarily placed in the position of
being thi; one of a few r ational lending institutions granting these
loans, thus bearing a t;reater proportion of the associated costs."
The Royal Bank does not currently restrict the number or
amount of student loans.
The Canadian Imperial Bank of
Commerce, which handles the
largest number of loans, will no
longer negotiate a student loan
transferred from another bank.
Colleges enforce
'Canadians only'
Although B.C. colleges can now
approve the admission of foreign
students to their institution without
education ministry approval, they
will have to follow a previously ignored ministry guideline that admission be upon "very special circumstances" only.
The transfer of responsibility
from the ministry to colleges is an
attempt to streamline foreign student application processing,
Capilano College principal Paul
Gallagher said. Friday.Previously,
applications sent to colleges had to
be approved by the education
ministry as well as the college.
The ministry was simply clarifying its current foreign student
policy in light of the transfer of admission responsibility, Gallagher
Deputy education minister James
Carter defended the admission
policy. "We are just reiterating
something that goes back years,"
he said. "We're just saying once
again that limited space should be
filled by Canadian citizens."
But at least one B.C. college with
foreign students has expressed concern over the enforced regulations.
Tobin Mayor, Emily Carr College of Art principal, said Friday
the enforcement of the policy will
hurt his college. Emily Carr has
more than 22 foreign students from
all over the world, he said.
"Our students would be enriched
by being exposed to different learn
ing and cultural experiences of
foreign students."
Foreign students currently enrolled in the college's four year program will be permitted to complete
their studies, he added.
But Gallagher said enforcement
of the policy will not affect
Capilano College, since the North
Vancouver institute has no foreign
The policy states "in general"
there will be no foreign students
permitted into B.C. colleges, he
said. Exceptions include refugees
and those seeking landed immigrant
status, Gallagher added.
"It's not a change in policy (on
the part of the education ministry),
it's just a change in procedure for
Douglas College president Bill
Day said Friday he will take the
clarified policy to the institutes
board to see if it can be incorporated into the college's official
policy. The New Westminster-based
college has very few foreign
students, he said.
"It's a philosophic rather than an
operational question for us; the
number (of foreign students) is just
too small."
Simon Fraser University
established a maximum quota of
seven percent of its students
population for foreign students this
summer. Approximately one percent of UBC's student population
consists of foreign students.
By Canadian University Press
Following a provincial government
threat this spring to reduce its funding because of its high international student population, Simon
Fraser University has introduced a
seven per cent quota for
A July 8 motion in senate allows
the registrar to select a number of
international students from various
disciplines to fill the quota.
Last March, Universities minister
Pat McGeer said foreigners should
not be counted in enrolment figures
when the government's operating
budget is granted. McGeer's proposal was aimed at SFU's 1,100
foreign students, about 11 per cent
of the undergraduate population.
Both the University of Victoria
and the University of British Columbia have foreign student populations of only two per cent.
Jack Munro, vice president
academic, introduced the motion
with a report stating that computing
science, math, business administration    and    economics    had    a
"disproportionate" number of
foreigh students.
"We are rapidly outrunning our
capacity to accept new students,"
said Munroe. He added that the
seven per cent quota figure was
"taken out of the air."
International students will only
be allowed into programs where
there are no qualified Canadian applicants.
According to George Tillman, a
spokesperson for the Canadian
Bureau for International Education, the universities are restricting
international students because they
have no political representation.
"They are one area that it's easy
to clamp down on," said Tillman.
"They have no effective voice —
Canadian students are Canadian
and their parents pay taxes and
He added that the universities are
forced to reduce their enrolments
by a provincial government that
cuts back on their operating grants
and allows them to operate with a
Guy Wright, Canadian Federation of Students-Ontario (CFS-O)
executive officer, said the banks are
trying to force the federal government to increase the interest rates
on student loans.
The move comes when student
unemployment is at 20 per cent and
unprecedented numbers of students
have applied for aid. Applications
are up 20 per cent in Ontario, 24 per
cent in Prince Edward Island, and
90 per cent in Alberta. In British
Columbia, applications increased
45 per cent at Simon Fraser University and 200 per cent at Caribou
Wright said the banks have not
backed up their claim that they lose
money on student loans.
"Until they prove their case, I
don't see that they have any right to
put pressure on the Secretary of
State using students as pawns,"
said Wright.
Federal-provincial negotiations
for a major restructuring of the 18
year-old loans system begin in
September. Regan will meet with
the CBA this fall to discuss their

ing when grants are cut said
Hender criticised government
"We processed all the applications a couple of days before Victoria's deadline. Victoria did not
start to issue documents until mid-
August. They indicated then they
may have trouble meeting requirements."
"When are they going to make
the decision?" asked Hender.
Students have until Feb. 21 to apply
for 1982-83 financial assistance.
Hender said they can't wait that
Grants rationing follows a summer of high student unemployment,
increased enrolment in provincial
institutions and increased demand
for student loans.
By July 2, the first deadline for
financial assistance, applications
were up 60 per cent said Hender.
In September, applications are 38
per cent ahead of the same time last
year, he added.
In addition to the increased
volume of loan applications, the
average   financial   need   increased
$600 to $3,250 compared to 1981-82
to put pressure on provincial grant
funds because Summer earnings fell
Hender said.
"We've never been concerned
with the budget because it has been
open ended Hender said. "That is
the problem now. They (the government) don't want the program to
become open ended like a welfare
program. They want limits."
Goard said "We've told the
universities that they'll have to cut
up to $12 million from their
operating budgets.
"If student aid is to be increased
that will come out of the operating
grant to the universities in
Meanwhile, for students awaiting
student assistance, Hender said tuition and housing payments can be
deferred — but a student must apply for the deferral.
In addition, emergency loans are
available from the awards office for
students living off-campus to meet
food and rent, he said.
Other emergency aid includes
work study for students unable to
save the required $900 to qualify for
BCSAP, Hender said.

Wheels go down in de-feet
New campus concept bars cars
While pedestrians at UBC are enjoying the enforcement of the
"walking campus" concept,
delivery and service drivers are
angry over the delays resulting from
The walking campus concept,
which became a reality after the
board of governors passed new traffic and parking regulations June 1,
is causing major delays for off-
campus drivers unfamiliar with the
university's roads.
Allied Food Services driver Ron
Bin said Friday the new regulations
have forced him to take a new time
consuming route to do his UBC
"I've been up to three-quarters
of an hour late," said Bin.
Loomis driver Marily Robertson
echoed Bin's dislike for the new
"I hate the new regulations, I
think its the shits," said Roberston.
"They're making it just about impossible to do our jobs."
A B.C. Tel electrician warned
that jobs will be left undone or
delayed because of the new restrictions. "There's a lot of buildings we
have to get into that we can't get access to now," he said.
But physical plant worker Art
Murtland said he has worked
around the new regulations and
avoided delays. But he noted
however that delivery drivers from
off-campus are constantly getting
lost in the backroads they are now
forced to use.
"They don't know the campus
like us," Murtland said. "You
can't blame them for being mad."
Students asked
to pay $20 more
in AMS fees
UBC students could be paying an
additional $20 in AMS fees by this
time next year.
In a referendum this November
students will vote on the $20 fee increase being proposed by the AMS
executive. If approved, the present
$12 AMS fee will rise to $32 next
AMS vice-president Cliff Stewart
said that if students want to see an
improved campus they will seriously
have to consider increasing their
student fees.
"We (the AMS) are (financially)
Okay for this year, but if we don't
get an operating fee increase by next
year, we're going to have to cut services."
Some organizations vulnerable to
possible inadequate AMS funding
next year would be undergrad
societies, clubs, The Ubyssey, and
CITR, he added.
Justifying the proposed increase,
AMS president Dave Frank said:
"Our student fee is the lowest in
Canada. The SFU student fee is
Of the additional $20, $2 would
go to AMS operations, $3 to intramural sports and $15 to a capital
building fund, said Frank.
"The $15 would be used exclusively for a set list of campus
Priority on this list will be given
to buying the land on which AMS
Whistler ski cabin is situated and to
renovate the barn on B-lot into a
work and recreation area for
students, said Frank.
In addition, the money could be
used to develop 12,000 square feet
of unused space under the plaza
south of SUB and the 2,000 square
feet in the basement of SUB, Frank
"These areas would provide
space for club offices and large
bookable areas for meetings and
dances," he said.
Frank said UBC has only one-
sixth the athletic facilities of other
major Canadian campuses.
Stewart said considering over
one-third of UBC students are involved in intramural sports,
facilities need to be better.
Frank said he wants to see the
field east of SUB turned into a
drop-in recreational and intramural
centre which would house racquetball, squash and tennis courts and a
gymnasium for basketball and badminton.
Due to a lack of government funding for new facilities on campus,
any construction within the next
five years would have to be financed mainly by students, said Frank.
Student money has built the War
Memorial Gym, the Thunderbird
sports centre, the aquatic centre,
SUB, and several other buildings.
He added that some deliveries are
being returned to their place of
origin as a result of the lost drivers.
"It means an extra workload for
our downtown truck," he said. "It
upsets our schedule."
The boundaries of the walking
campus consist of East and West
malls, Agronomy Road to the
south, and Crescent Road to the
north. A fine of $25 will be charged
to owners of vehicles found within
the boundaries, with the exception
of emergency vehicles.
According to Dennis Haller,
assistant director of physical plant,
the cost of installing new traffic
signs and repainting roads fell between $15,000 and $20,000. These
figures do not include the cost of
the hexagonal concrete traffic barriers that have been installed, said
UBC patrol supervisor Terry
O'Brennen defended the walking
campus idea in light of the many
close calls that have occurrec, in the
"It's absolutely flabbergasted me
that someone hasn't been killed,"
O'Brennon sdd Thursday. "I think
most of the students wanted it."
There will be additions to the
walking campus idea in the future,
O'Brennon said. "The ultimate aim
is to have the entire centre of the
campus as a walking mall."
Verbal and written warnings
which have been issued to drivers
found within the restricted areas,
will soon be replaced by actual
fines, he said.
"We're going to give a few more
days of warning, then we're going
to have to get firm about it,"
O'Brennon said.
But a UBC patrol officer said
fines will not be given out immediately. "The president said to
hold off for a month," he said.
He added that reactions to the
new regulations have been mixed.
"The people who are used to driving on campus are a little upset," he

A university employee narrowly escaped harm in
an explosion at a chemical waste disposal facility July
22, a union official said.
The explosion occurred ' when the worker was
disposing of chemical waste including highly-
explosive nitrogylcerine. The compound was in unmarked plastic bags.
The explosion, which caused $2,000 worth of
damage, destroyed the interior walls of the incinerator and knocked over its emission stack. It also
blew the incinerator door off its hinges.
"He (the worker) was very fortunate to escape injury. A hefty explosion took place a few seconds
after he left," said Ken Andrews from CUPE 116,
the Union representing the physical plant workers.
"We had drawn attention to the hazard on many
occasions before the accident," he added.
UBC Information Services reported Sept. 8 that
regulations regarding the labeling of chemical products have become more stringeit. The head o~ the
chemistry department Dr. Larry Wyler commented
after reading the report that people in his departnent
"have been asked to be more conscientious with the

"There were no spelled out regulations about it.
It's a common substance for the people who deal
with it. It would never occur to them that no one
would not know what it is," UBC Information Services officer Al Hunter said.
When asked about the accident, a CUPE ocal
116 secretary replied "What explosion?" and referred The Ubyssey's enquiries to Richard Hincklernan,
the CUPE safety representative at physical plant.
Unfortunately, Hincklernan was on leave.
Ron Aamodt, head of the chemical waste

A bus route along King Edward
to UBC is a real possibility and has
only one more hurdle left before
starting mid-December, said a
Greater Vancouver Regional
District planner Monday.
Members of B.C. Transit, which
make final decisions on bus routes,
will be meeting September 27 to
discuss the proposed route, said
Dave Roberts.

The new route will not solve overcrowding problems on existing
Tenth, Forty-First and Forty-Ninth

can only go through if other bus
services are cut, said Roberts. Richmond and Delta connections will be
affected by the route.
The GVRD and Vancouver city
council approved service cuts in
August. Although some residents
who live on King Edward objected,
students have fought for the route
since 1975.
A petition was started on campus
in 1975 to get a bus route along
King Edward. A similar petition
that year also helped to start the
Forty-Ninth bus route.
Residents complained that the
new route would lower property
values, and cause excessive noise

Chilean coup still an issue after nine years
One day after the Sept. 11, 1973 military
coup in Chile, 50 people demonstrated in
Vancouver against the new dictator, general
Augusto Pinochet. Nine years later, the
tragic events in Chile in 1973 are fading from
public memory, kept alive only by small
groups of dedicated activists.
An estimated 30,000 people have died in
Chile since the leftist Popular Unity government of Salvador Allende was overthrown by
the military. Another 100,000 remain in
prison. An additional one million live in exile
outside the country. About 2,500 have
Elspeth Gardner, a Vancouver lawyer and
chairperson of Canadians for Democracy in
Chile, was in that early demonstration in
1973, and has since been active in the CDC.
Gardner describes Chile as having close
parallels to Spain, where in the ">0s a
democratically elected government was overthrown by general Francisco Franco. Even a
united effort by progressive people all over
the world failed to topple Franco, says Gardner, and Spanish democracy was regained
only with his death.
Chile appears to be in a similar dilemma.
"Will it take the death of Pinochet to change
Chile?" she asks. "That is a lousy way for
history to change, by people dying."
The Chilean people have tried to sring
about change, but their efforts have had little
effect on Pinochet's repressive government.
"They've had strikes, which are illegal.
They've had demonstrations, which are also
illegal." Inevitably such actions result in
large numbers of people being arrested,
Gardner says.
'There is no outlet for democratic expression. All trade unions ;uid political parties are
outlawed," she says. Protest actions have
tailed to influence Pinochet. "What is really
concerning the Chilean people today is how
they are going to get rid of him."
Allende was overthrown with the help of
the American government and the CIA
because he was directing Chile in a socalist
direction, says Gardner. His governmen: nationalized the copper and coal mines, the
steel industry, and some banks. The government simultaneously increased it financial
contribution to areas such as education,
housing, social services, and health care. "In
a place like South America, that is a threat.
It's a big threat to the U.S.," she says.
That the coup was intended to protect
private economic interests, rather than the
professed goal of "safeguarcing
democracy," has been long and widely
recognized. "What they really set right when
the military came in was giving the mines
back to private interests," says Gardner
After attaining power, Pinochet either
returned nationalized assets to the corporations, or provided them with compensation
(which Allende did not do when he nationalized assets.) "Right away under
Pinochet, the social services were curtailed,"
says Gardner.
Other progressive advancements undertaken by Allende were overturned. Foreign
companies were encouraged to invest in
Chile. Lured by cheap labour and low taxes,
foreign investment in Chile increased, often
at the expense of both Chileans and the
populations of the investing countries.
"Some of those companies (which had Canadian outlets) have stopped their operations in
Canada," Gardner says.
But contrary to established beliefs, foreign
investment does not help the people or give
them a higher standard of living, Gardner
says. "It doesn't help the people to have their
economy developed this way, with the help of
Noranda (Mining Ltd.)," she says, "All that
happens is they export products they need
down there."
This situation has not gone unnoticed by
the international community. "The United
Nations has never ceased to condemn the
Pinochet government for its violations of
human rights," Gardner says. "The Canadian government has always taken a position
of support of the UN. But our (the CDC's)
position is that they have not followed it up
with action. The have continued to allow
loans to companies investing in Chile."
The CDC is trying to get the Canadian
government and public to withdraw support
for investors in Chile, says Gardner. The
strategy used so far has included consumer
boycot s, although they have so far not been
"sufficiently effective," she says. "The important thing is to stop investment in Chile
and imports from Chile."
The Canadian government is capable of
contributing to this end if they choose to or
could be convinced to, says Gardner. "There
is a let of weight that could be thrown
around if anybody wanted to throw it."
Whik trying to stop further investment in
Chile, the CDC continues its boycott campaign against Chilean products. Gardner says
product: such as onions, grapes, and nectarines that arrive in Vancouver between
January and March is very likely from Chile.
The boycott campaign urges consumers to
find out where produce came from, and to
refrain from buying Chilean goods. "If we
were going to help them, it would be better if
those things stayed in Chile for them to eat,"
she says.
Still, the situation in Chile is unchanged
since the 1973 coup, says Gardner. In an attempt to appear legitimate, Pinochet ran a
plebiscite and then adopted a new constitution in March, 1981. "The whole thrust of
the constitution is that if you're opposed to
Pinochet you're a terrorist," she says. "It's
just a constitution of fascism, really. It's just
a coding of a repressive situation."
This extreme right-wing dictatorship is
contrary to Chile's history, which is basically
democratic, Gardner says, and in this sense is
unique among Latin American countries.
"Other Latin American countries are
fighting for their first gains. Chile is a country that had all those gains and lost them
all. None of the rest of them ever had that.
They're fighting for it in El Salvador and
Guatemala. But they had it in Chile. They
weren't prevented from breaking out. They
were cut down," she says.
"It's still a state of siege, despite the new
constitution. They still have military control
with no relaxation at all."
Military control led many Chileans to flee
their country, some estimates running as high
as one million, or 10 percent of the population. Many of them left with passports that
left no possibility for re-entry, which is
against UN declarations, says Gardner. Now
many of the exiles are left without citizenship
or country. "A lot of Chileans don't want to
become citizens of another country," she
says. "They want to go back to their own
The Canadian government has also not
been entirely friendly to refugees from Latin
.America in general and Chile in particular,
Gardner charges. There was a reluctance on
the government's part to admit Chilean
political refugees after the coup. This, she
says, is contrary to the policy extended to
refugees from Poland and other East European countries, who obtain easy entrance.
"They didn't get anything like that when
they came from Chile," says Gardner.
Chilean solidarity groups are now being
assisted in their work by other organizations,
says Gardner. "The trade union movement
has involved itself to quite a great extent,
here and in other countries, because of the
repression of unions in Chile," she says.
However, unions often can't contribute to
the boycott campaign because of contract
committments, she says. "If unions could actively boycott they could do a great deal to
stop imports of Chilean products."
Gardner and the CDC intend to keep the
Chilean issue visible. On Saturday the CDC
held a public meeting with speakers and films
to commemmorate the anniversary. A march
and remembrance mass were also held Saturday afternoon.
Gardner's personal committment and enthusiasm remains strong after nine years. She
speaks anxiously—during an hour long interview her glass of wine remains untouched.
Discussing the "disappeared" and the imprisoned, she takes two posters from a
recently arrived envelope from Chile, sent to
the CDC by the National Association of the
Families of the Detained and Disappeared.
One, the size of a newspaper page, is filled
with names of the "disappeared," documenting their date and place of "disappearance."
The other depicts a woman and child looking
at a prison, an armed guard and barred window in the background. Written in Spanish
at the bottom of the poster is the message
"Hasten the day when we meet them again." Page 12

Thousands of new island residents
ran around the island community
this week madly searching for
knowledge. To confuse matters
more, island residents were treated
to a maze in the Buck Canon

After sorting out the island
government's latest attempt to confuse matters, residents sat down to
casually read The Daily Blah, which
had just returned to the island after
a four month absence.
Residents were shocked to learn
of gloom and doom, not to mention
boom and more boom on the
island. The island was definately

Student council caught in national conference fever
An Alma Mater Society representative will be attending the 1982
meeting of the Canadian Council of
Ministers of Education in October
at the invitation of universities
minister Pat McGeer. _
Student council voted overwhelmingly to send AMS president
Dave Frank or his designate to the
Toronto conference at a cost of
"The purpose of the conference
is to open up a dialogue among the
various groups involved in post
high school education," says the
conference invitation. Represeji-
tatives of universities, colleges,
governments, students, business
and industry will take part in the
four day conference.
Council overwhelmingly defeated
a motion from external affairs officer Cynthia Southard to send
three delegates to a conference, to
discuss another conference.
The October Edmonton conference, during which representatives of Western Canadian post-
secondary institutions will discuss
positions for a November Canadian
Federation of Students conference,
came under attack from many
"I question the validity of a conference of this type," said AMS
finance director James Hollis * a
former external affairs coordinator.
"It's sort of like a Western
Canada Concept party meeting,"
said one council member.
Engineering undergraduate society president Rich Day said council
must be consistent in the way it involves itself with CFS. Council
should either work to change the
organization from within, or
without, not both, he said.
Southard defended the motion,
saying it was important to discuss
problems before the November CFS
conference in Victoria.
Arts representative Jon Gates
suggested Southard arrange a conference call to solicit other institution's problems and questions
regarding CFS, thereby saving the
AMS travel expenses.
Council spent 45 minutes discussing a report from arts representative
Stephen Leary and student senator
Lisa Hebert on the B.C. regional
CFS meeting held August 20 in Victoria.
Graduate students' autonomy
from the Alma Mater Society is
nearly complete, with the passing of
a new constitution for the graduate
student organization by student
In an unanimous vote, council
approved a new constitution for a
subsidiary organization called the
Graduate Student's Association.
The GSA will act as a liason between the AMS and the Graduate
Students' Society, an autonomous
society incorporated under the B.C.
Society Act.
AMS president Dave Frank said
the move was essentially "red
tape." Since the AMS constitution
only allows subsidiary organizations to have representatives on student council, the intermediary
organization is necessary, he said.
Attempts by the UBC film society
to close down a free movie service
in SUB have come under attack
from a Alma Mater Society executive member and a UBC club.
Filmsoc members acted out of
"petty maliciousness" in trying to
have a free afternoon movie series
in the Pit declared illegal, AMS
finance director James Hollis said
The club contacted film
distributors, the B.C. film
classification branch, and the B.C.
liquor control board in the attempt,
he said.
But once all the groups FilmSoc
■ had contacted knew exactly how the
Pit series was being operated they
gave an "absolute green-light"
Hollis said. FilmSoc tried to have
the series declared illegal as an infringement of copyright and liquor
Since there is no admission
charge to the films, and the liquor
act does not prohibit it, the series is
legal, Hollis said.
"What is disappointing is that an
AMS subsidiary has attempted to
jeopardize a damn fine AMS service
in a small-minded attempt to
somehow "get back" at the AMS,"
Hollis wrote in a report to student
But Filmsoc chair Peter Leung
denied Hollis' charges Sunday. "I
checked with the other Filmsoc executives and they didn't do it."
Leung criticised Hollis for levell-
iing the charges in council without
I discussing the matter with Filmsoc.
"he certainly hasn't come to us."
The Pit video is not competition,
says Leung. "Who's going to sit in
the Pit and watch On Golden Pond
for two and a half hours?*" ^
Leung wants Hollis to provide
proof of his allegations and name
Filmsoc members who allegedly
contacted the distributors. "We're
pretty pissed off."
Filmsoc will accept a formal
apology from Hollis, Leung said. If
no apologies given, Filmsoc will go
to council to clear its name, he said.
Distributors mentioned the Pit
showings when Filmsoc booked its
fall series, Leung said.
Diane Brownstein, president of
the UBC video club, which
organizes the second-run movie
series on the Pit's large-screen TV
said FilmSoc was trying to eliminate
their competition.
Brownstein, who is also a
Filmsoc member, criticised the
club's "cliguesness," saying the
organization is controlled by a
group of people who call themselves
Secretive search fer Pres. continues
Behind closed doors in smoke-
filled rooms, a group of 24 is still
deliberating the fate of UBC.
Secretively, they search for someone to fill the shoes of Doug
Kenny, UBC's administrative
More than 80 people have applied for Kenny's job, or have
had their names submitted to the
presidential selections committee. At the moment, the committee is reviewing the applications,
getting further information and
summing up tlie candidates'
Since the monthly meetings
began in May, candidates have
been reviewed on the basis of
five criteria. They are:
• quality of leadership
• fiscal competence
• administrative ability
• understanding of public relationships
• academic achievement
Committee chair J.V. Clyne
said they are gradually narrowing down the list of names and
are currently concentrating on
20 or 30. He said he hopes a
short list of three or four names
will be given to the board of
governors before the end of the
"The board will be given full
discretion because they are going
to make the final choice," he
Clyne added he is depending
on the committee members' intelligence and discretion not to
divulge any information,
especially candidates' names.
"It's purely based on trust.
"We must not let names get
out or we'll lose them," he
But he need not worry because
no one is talking.
"I'm not going to tell you
anything," said student committee member Cliff Stewart Monday.
But he did say he hopes the
new president will be more open
and accessible than Kenny.
The committee is "progressing well" and the student
representatives are quite vocal
Stewart said.
"The committee has one interest — to find somebody that's
really good for the job, and
that's all I'm going to say."
Student representative Linda
Wallbaum refused to answer any
"No comment," she said.

Tuesday, September 14,1982
Fifty years from now, filmmakers and novelists will immortalize the recession
of '82 with "Four Lost Months" or "The Heaps of Froth."
But at the registrars office, the recession will be recorded through 25,000
carefully penned checkmarks over No. of weeks employed: 3-4, or Professional Objective: undecided.
Here are a few quick examples of how a completed statistical survey translates
into human terms. An important indicator not normally included on the registrar's
survey but listed below is "Are you finally deciding to go for a loan?" In fact if
nothing else, the year may show that the recession is giving the students an opportunity
to give new meaning to the term "going for broke." _., m^o uSS> ^

Deforests Klosed
Many industries that normally hire large numbers of students have
been severely hurt by the recession. Consequently many students found
that not only were they not being approached by employers but they
were actually being turned away when they inquired themselves. In fact,
the ranks of UBC s unclassifieds have swelled owing to the large number
of graduating students unwilling to face the third option.

she was 16 and isn't about to start now (Dammit Jim, I'm a forestry student not a waitress) will like the beach until the monsoon rains begin in

Journalism school
delayed by short funds
Due to a lack of assured funding
UBC will not have a school of journalism until at least the 1984-85
academic year, arts dean Robert
Will said Thursday.
Although the universities council
of B.C. has approved in principle
the idea of creating a journalism
program at UBC, it has yet to commit funding, said Will.
"The money is not on the
barrel," Will said.
He cited the hiring of two full-
time and one part-time teaching
positions as major costs to the program.
Despite the university's bleak
economic outlook, Will said the
creation of a journalism program
at UBC is a necessary and justified
"Even if the financial climate is
bad, that doesn't mean we should
immobilize and fossilize our programs,' said Will. "Because times
are tight is not in itself a reason for
not doing anything new and exciting."
He cited the findings of a committee struck up a UBC in 1976 to
study the feasibility of a journalism
program, and the Kent Commission's report on newspapers as the
incentives for the program.
"There was a feeling that in this
province, there should be a program in journalism," Will said.
He stressed that "there's been an
extraordinary amount of interest
from journalists, prospective faculty, and prospective students."
The program will be two years in
length and lead to a masters degree
in journalism. Only students
already possessing a bachelor's
degree will be accepted.
Acceptance into the program will
also be determined by the
applicant's previous experience in
journalism, Will said. "We won't
be teaching much of the basics."
Teaching faculty for the program
will be drawn from the three additional hirings, and from the existing
social sciences faculty, added Will.

Visa students
starve in Ottawa
OTTAWA (CUP) — Zairean
embassy officials are doing their
best to ignore nine students starving
in their midst.
The students, all dependent on
Zairean government scholarships,
recently began a hunger strike in the
embassy to protest the fact that
their last payment was almost 11
months ago.
The students say their average
debt load is $2,500.
Delegations from the Carleton
University African Students'
Association and the Quebec
General Union of African Students
(UGESAQ) tried to present letters
of protest to the ambassador Sept. 1
but he was unavailable.
An embassy spokesperson told
the students that the ambassador
was in Toronto for an international
meeting of finance ministers.
Theophile Mandala of the
UGESAQ said the students have
been denied access to washrooms
and medical supplies in the embassy. He added the embassy room
they are occupying has no heat.
Theophile said the government of
Zaire is "directly responsible" for
the plight of about 30 Zairean
students sent to Canada on government   scholarships.
Olema Dbhonvapi, a Carleton
University graduate student who
joined the strike said his aid was cut
off in September 1981. He had to
leave residence in May and the embassy paid one month's rent for him
at a rooming house.
He has received no money since
then and has been evicted from the
rooming house.
He stayed with a family in Ottawa until he completed his exams
in August.
Although Olema has completed
his Master's degree in comparative
literature, the university will not
release his marks because he owes
them money. He could not apply
for his PhD program at any other
Canadian university because his
transcript was withheld.
Olema said the students contacted the bank in Belgium that administers their accounts but the
bank had received no money from
the Zairean government. The
students repeated appeals to the embassy and the government have
been met with silence.
"It's precisely because there's
been no explanation that these
students have taken the desperate
measure of this hunger strike," said
Sully Gariba of the Carleton
African Students Association."
Victor Ndovi of the association,
said Zairean students in France and
Belgium faced with a similar situation had their government grants
reinstated only after they vandalized the respective embassies.
Although there has been no official explanation from the government, Ndoi said "Zaire is going
through a very difficult economic
D. G. Anglin, a Carleton University political science professor, said
the country was $120 million in debt
in 1981 and the projections for this
year are $250 million.
"The country is in utter chaos,"
said Anglin.

North American involvements
and investments in the country
overlook brutality
Canadian University Press
A student, his arms loaded with pamphlets, walks up 10 stories to the top of a
building in a major urban center that could
be Kwangju, Inchon Or Seoul. Reaching the
top he throws them into the streets below.
People read familiar lines: Chun out,
America out, reunification, democratization.
Having completed his task and knowing that
he will now be arrested, tortured and imprisoned or killed, the student throws himself
off the building.
The country is the Republic of Korea
(South Korea) controlled by the dictatorial
regime of Chun Doo Hwan. Chun has had
the distinction of being the second official
visitor to Washington welcomed by the then
new administration of Ronald Reagan.
Pierre Trudeau made a two-day stop over
in South Korea last September, promoting
Canadian trade (estimated at $1 billion last
year) and putting the final touches on the sale
of a CANDU reactor to Chun's regime.
Chun and a cavalcade of officials visited Ottawa in August of this year to solidify trade
between the two countries.
South Korea has also been honored with
the distinction of being the site of the 1988
summer Olympics.
Along with these "positive" steps in
foreign diplomacy and trade Chun has seen
fit to lift the curfew which has been in effect
for 36 years, ever since its imposition by U.S.
occupation troops Sept. 7, 1945.
As of Jan. 5 it was legal for Seoul
residents to be out on the street between midnight and 4:00 a.m.
Increasing pressure from people in the
business sector whose entertainment and
nightlife habits were conflicting with the
curfew is responsible for the change and the
curfew remains in effect in designated areas
of the country.
The commercial press has reported that the
situation is improving under the new regime.
The darker side of the regime's oppression
has not been as widely publicized.
To begin looking at this darker side it can
be seen that the implementation of particularly repressive labor legislation last October has received little publicity.
This legislation makes illegal the right of
assembly; the right to collective bargaining;
the right to strike; and the right to third party
This legislation is the logical conclusion of
policies that South Korea has been following
for over 20 years. Following the Korean
"police action" War the U.S. installed Park
Chung Hee as president. Authoritarian and
repressive he was to rule for the next 18 years.
Park was assassinated in October 1979.
Martial law was instituted. Demonstrations
for democratic rule escalated and repression
of these by the military increased. Leaders of
the demonstrations were arrested and tortured.
Labor strikes and campus demonstrations
began; students called for the reinstitution of
students called for the reinstitution of student councils, these having been banned
under Park's rule. Workers demanded unpaid back wages and wage increases to compensate for inflation.
On May 15, 1980 over 50,000 students
demonstrated in Seoul demanding speedier
democratization. In Kwangju the next day
over 35,000 students and citizens
demonstrated   and  having  been  promised
committed suicide after her children had
been killed. Soldiers committed rape, cut off
the breasts of some demonstrators, threw
wounded off the roofs of buildings and committed further atrocities during the ten days
of rioting.
A Korean reporter questioned a
paratrooper captured by students and asked
him why they had been so brutal.
"He told me that they hadn't been fed for
three days, that immediately before being
sent into Kwangju they had been fed 'soju'
(rice wine), and also that they had been told
they were being sent in to put down a communist insurrection," the reporter said.
United Church missionary Inez Flem-
ington reports: "It is believed that during the
period May 19 to 27 more than 2000 were
killed, 15,000 were injured and possibly 3000
were arrested while the number of those missing is impossible to even estimate."
The Kwangju incident received the same
treatment from the commercial press as do
most incidents of repression in South
Korea. By the end of the rioting on May 27
the New York Times was still reporting about
300 dead and ran a headline that read "South
Korean Troops Retake Kwangju in Predawn
Raid, Killing 2 Rebels."
There are over 44,000 U.S. troops in South
See ?,
Soldiers who hadn't been
fed for three days were
given rice wine, and told
they were going in to put
down a communist
insurrection.  In eight
days, more than 2,000
were killed, 15,000
.^wr. '*< V    injured, and 3,000
quick results called off further demonstrations.
On May 17 Chun led a coup d'etat, imposed nationwide martial law, closed the universities, banned the National Assembly from
meeting and arrested hundreds of democratic
leaders, including prominent opposition
leader Kim Dae-jung, and students.
Ten days of rioting and bloodshed in the
city of Kwangju followed the coup d-etat. It
began with a demonstration of 500 students
protesting martial law and the closure of the
universities. Soldiers and paratroopers were
sent in and suppressed the demonstrations
violently. They killed students and citizens
indiscriminately and subjected many to inhuman brutality.
Children and babies were shot; one mother
Korea, stationed there since the end of the
Korean War. The U.S. believes its presence is
sanctioned for a number of reasons, principally because of the "communist threat",
from the north.
This "threat" is carefully fostered in the
minds of the people of South Korea through
a systematic campaign of anti-communist
propaganda. Dissidents are routinely labeled
communist insurgents and spies. The Korean
middle class and business elite believes that
any governmental intercession, South
Korean or American, is better than what the
North would do to them.
American Japanese and Canadian multinationals particularly value the many government guarantees and laws that protect their
investments. Major industries starting in
South Korea are given five year tax holidays.
Investors are guaranteed that if their investment fails in the first five years they will be
given their money back.
The middle class and business elites are
convinced of the necessity of this course of
action because they are led to believe that
they have no option. All that they see is that
they are in competition with Singapore and
Taiwan for world prices and have not got the
option of an agricultural future due to past
choices which were not theirs to make.
Canadian involvement basically follows
the line of American interests. Taking advantage of the "stability," Canadian multinationals invest in South Korea. Last year's investments totalled $1 billion.
Northern Telecom International Ltd. of
Montreal has sold U.S. $81 million of digital
switching to South Korea's Ministry of communication.
Canadian interests also take advantage of
the Free Trade Zones which have been in existence for over 20 years. These are zones that
are given wholly over to multinational control. Strikes are illegal; the right to general
assembly, third party intervention, collective
bargaining are illegal.
In Free Trade Zones there are no health
and safety guarantees (according to the International Labor Organization (ILO), South
Korea has the world's highest industrial accident rate) and multinational operations are
not taxed. They are a haven for foreign investment and hell for the low wage laborers,
40 per cent of whom earn less than $151 US
Another major Canadian interest in South
Korea is the sale of CANDU reactors and the
supplying of the uranium fuel for them.
Trudeau promoted this during his two-day
stop-over last year. There is one CANDU
reactor in operation in South Korea at this
South Korea has announced that it plans to
build 44 nuclear power plants in the next 20
years. This makes it the largest market for
nuclear power plants in the world today.
There are at least seven plants in operation
at the moment; six were sold by
Westinghouse, one by CANDU.
The U.S. government Export-Import Bank
is instrumental in the sale of these reactors,
financing all six of the Westinghouse reactors. For two of the reactors the Export-
Import Bank made direct loans of U.S.
$829.7 million to the government-owned
Korea Electric Company. It has also lent
U.S. $926.3 million for two more.
There are alternatives to nuclear power in
South Korea. At present 55 per cent of its
energy comes from imported oil. South
Korea does have coal reserves and hydro
power and could develop solar power as well
as its extensive coastline for tidal power.
Each plant costs more than $1 US billion
and presents obvious environmental hazards.
Thus far the plants are located near major industry so it would appear that they are for
the benefit of the foreign interests once
again. And of course they can be used for the
development of nuclear weapons.
Studies estimate that South Korea will
have the technology to build a bomb by the
For two years now there has been active
opposition within and without to the South
Korean government's policies and treatment
of its citizens. The situation has only become
The Chun regime is being challenged every
day but as long as it is upheld by the powers
of the first world it will not fall easily nor
quickly. The situation of the South Korean
people is bleak and promises to continue for
some time. Increased internal and international pressures may effect change in time.
The repression will continue. Many
thousands more will be imprisoned, tortured
and will die in the meantime. Page 20

Names and specific incidents

Nolan, Rupert and Bird filed libel
charges claiming that the allegations
had harmed their reputations. They
said that all 16 male journalism professors in their department had
been implicated.
Two student groups set up
defense funds on campus to raise
legal fees for the defendants. In a
written statement, defense fund

problems so many women in institutions and workplaces face,"
she wrote.
The settlement states that "the
plaintiffs . . . are in support of the
objectives of the defendants in
bringing an end to sexual harassment."
Procedures for dealing with sexual harassment are currently being
developed at Carleton University.
The information office is
distributing a brochure at registration that urges students to take
complaints of sexual harassment to
their department chair, the dean,
the ombuds office, the women's
centre, or the counselling service.
Ombudsperson Jim Kennelly said
the issue had to be brought out into
the open.
"It's not something people complain about for the sake of complaining," said Kennelly.

Band good reference for
programs director head
The flack sheet labels Translator "the
most idealistic rock and roll group to emerge
from San Francisco since the Grateful
Dead". It must be true; the quote is from
Rolling Stone magazine. Still I wonder what
an idealistic rock and roll band is, and query
the sanity of anybody who would compare a
new wave group to Jerry Garcia and his
fellow refugees from the '60s.
But the quote did pique my curiousity
about Translator's appearance at the Pit
August 27. As it turned out Translator is its
own best reference. The similarity with the
Grateful Dead though, ends with the fact
that they're both fairly original.
Translator has taken Blues, country and
rock idioms and fused them with new wave in
the same manner that the Police have incorporated ska and reggae influences into their
music. The result is an infectious blend of
harmony and discord that invites comparisons with everyone from Captain
Beefheart to Paul McCartney (but not with
the Grateful Dead).
Translator is also unique in terms of the
content of their songs. The new wave influence is there but the nihilism that usually
goes with it is not. Their lyrics maintain some
optimism about the human condition.
Their best songs, like Necessary Spinning
and Nothing is Saving Me deserve praise for
their originality and intelligence. However,
like any band eyeing commercial success
some of their songs are forgetable concessions to popular taste. Certainly they are a
better band in the loose atmosphere of a live
performance than they are on their Columbia
LP Heartbeats and Triggers.
One of the more interesting questions raised by Translator lies not in their music
though, but in their appearance here — their
first in Canada. What is a critically acclaimed
band with an LP on Columbia Records doing
in a humble place like the Pit?
The answer is a good reference fo:: Bruce
Paisley, the new Alma Mater Society programs director. Translator's appearance here
is obviously a bit of a coup and it looks like
Paisley's first project as programs director
may set a trend.
Paisley comes to UBC with healthy credentials. He's been the road manager for The
Kinks, Heart and Waylon Jennings, has
worked as a stage and production manager
for Isle of Man Productions and put together
the four recent outdoor shows at Empire
He views his job at UBC as a psrsonal
challenge; a chance to see unexploited opportunities developed.
"In the past it's been unorganized for an
outside promoter to come in here," Paisley
said, adding that he intends to change that.
"New local bands have been broken in here,
why can't we do the same thing with out of
town bands?"
Paisley's ideas include big projects like
summer outdoor concerts at Thunderbird
Stadium and smaller services like arranging
for local groups to play at faculty events.
Paisley also wants to see the War Memorial
Gym back on track as a concert venue. In
spite of the capital funding freeze at the
university, $600,000 has been scraped up to
install new fire exits required by the fire marshall. It's money well spent because the Gym
will undoubtedly be a money generator for
the financially strapped AMS and for the
athletic department.
Paisley said that the War Memorial Gym is
the best mid sized venue in Vancouver. "It
has good sight lines and the sound's pretty
Actually the sound is mediocre bordering
on bad but The Gardens is worse and the
Kerrisdale Arena is the most painful place to
hold a concert next to the Eaton's Carpark.
The Gym should be ready after Christmas.
In the meantime Paisley is keeping busy
with what he's got. Maclnness Field will play
host to free concerts by Los Popularos
tomorrow from noon until 2 p.m., and by
The Best at the same time on Thursday. Friday will see a lunch hour show by Silverlode
at the SUB plaza.
The Pit will play host to The Villians on
■   ■  translator-guitarist at Pit
the 16, 17 and 18. And the SUB ballroom will
see the Payolas on Friday the 17.
Bravo to the person who came up with the
idea of serving liquor in the party room
(which adjoins the ballroom) so that
alcoholics can be provided for while minors
can still see the show without being subjected
to the sight of the demon liquor.
Upcoming events include Jerry Doucette at
the Pit. As well the Wildroot Orchestra will
be part of the Great Trek's 60th anniversary
celebration in October.

"Welcome back my friends to the
show that never ends ..."
- Emerson, Lake and Palmer
It was an unusual summer at
The university continued in its
way, as student council started
drawing building plans for a
November referendum. While the
UBC board of governors was
debating ripping down a possible
heritage building because it was a
threat to university funding, council
was busy getting $500,000 in extra
student aid from the board.
Summer session enrolment
boomed, as students, unable to find
a summer job, returned to school.
An endowment lands rapist was
convicted, UBC students learned
the local RCMP detachment was
running a surveillance operation on
SUB bulletin boards, and the AMS
started its own police force in SUB.
And summer students had two
summer campus newspapers.
Gallery gels liquor
SUB's student art gallery is now a
permanent licensed lounge.
Student council overwhelmingly
voted June 2 to convert the area just
off SUB's main concourse to a liquor lounge. A new art gallery will
be constructed in a portion of the
current conversation Pit.
The cost of converting the gallery
was approximately $25,000. An additional $25,000 may be required to
build the new art gallery.
Art Gallery committee members
were unsuccessful in their attempt
to get council to delay its decision
until September when students
returned to campus. "I think the
winter session fine arts students
who are absent during the summer
should be allowed more input into
the matter," said committee
member Cathy Ord.
AMS vice president Cliff Stewart
said the art gallery has long been
considered as a replacement for the
Lethe lounge.
"The gallery was turned into a
lounge for five weeks last fall and
was well attended," said Stewart.
Two summer papers
UBC students had two campus
newspapers this summer, both
published by the Alma Mater Society.
The Ubyssey received a $18,000
federal government grant to employ
six people and publish during the
summer. However, The Summer
Ubyssey decided to fold after the
AMS advertising office could not
solicit sufficient advertising for the
new paper.
Ubyssey staff members claimed
all the advertising for a summer
campus paper had already been
solicited by a AMS staff-created
publication, The Conventioner.
The Conventioner was meant to
provide a "general, positive, promotional information in newspaper
format," according to AMS special
projects coordinator Linda Singer.
"Since we did not want negative
ideas taken home, the idea was to
avoid politics and simply develop a
positive, lighthearted look at SUB,
UBC and Vancouver."
The Conventioner was designed
for the summer conventioner
market and summer students. The
paper had a 3,000 student circulation.
Student council approved the
publication only after most of the
advertising had already been
solicited. "The Conventioner was
sneaked past council by the back
door," said one student council
Council, faced with the prospect
of folding The Summer Ubyssey
and eliminating six student jobs and
returning    the    federal   grant,
amalgamated the two papers under
Ubyssey control with minor restrictions.
$6.4 million found
The UBC administration "deliberately misled" the board of governors as to the state of the
university's finances earlier this
year, a former student representative to the board charged during
the summer.
"I feel we were deliberately misled by the administration with
regard to justifying the 32.8 per
cent (tuition) fee increase, when it's
apparent that the fee increase could
have been spread over two years at
the very least," Chris Niwinski said
about a $6.4 million "reserve" left
over from the previous fiscal year.
The surplus came after the
university made $7.2 million in cuts,
due to an unexpected 18 per cent
faculty wage settlement.
The "reserve," which was announced in the June 9 UBC Reports
(the university's information sheet),
comes in part from "unusually high
short-term interest rates" last fall,
financial retrenchment by various
faculties and "uncertainties
associated with the medical school
expansion budget," the report said.
But university spokesperson Jim
Banham denied that the board was
"I think the president (of UBC,
Doug Kenny) has kept the board informed," he said. "The board at its
meetings gets monthly financial
reports about what's happening at
the university . . .
"And it (the board) has a finance
committee which meets before
every board meeting and goes over
the report. I don't think the administration can buy the argument
that the board is not being kept informed."
KANE . . . appeal rejected
Erosion stopped
After more than $1.3 million and
three years of studies, public
meetings and construction, UBC's
cliff erosion control project is
almost complete.
In 1980, phase one included felling large trees at the top of the sand
cliffs and improving beach access to
lessen cliff erosion.
A 1,000 foot berm was built in
1981 under phase two. Phase three
will be completed this month, with
the seeding of the completed berm
with dune grass.
AMS hack quits
For the second consecutive year,
an Alma Mater Society administration director has resigned in midterm.
Terry Cox resigned April 28. "It
was 90 per cent financial and 10 per
cent pride," said AMS president
Dave Frank.
Last year's administration director, Bill Maslechko, resigned in
November, as he was not returning
to school in January. Cox was appointed to replace Maslechko on a
temporary basis, and was elected to
the position in January.
An AMS hiring committee decision not to hire Cox for the sum
mer, and Cox's decision to attend
American Law school, which requires a one year residence prior to
entry for in-state tuition fees,
resulted in the decision, Frank said.
A by-election will be held in early
October, Frank said. Council appointed SAC member Alexis
Cherkezoff as interim administrator
director until a by-election can be
Cherkezoff said Wednesday she
will not seek the position, due to a
heavy course load this year.
Junk mail stopped
UBC students will no longer be
receiving junk mail from companies
courtesy of their student society.
During the summer, council
rescinded a prior council's decision
to let the Canadian Federation of
Students, a national lobbying and
service group for Canadian post-
secondary students, use UBC student names for an informational
The program involved
distributing information about CFS
directly to students, .while having a
company pay for mailing costs in
return for advertising space,
finance director James Hollis said.
CFS mailed Financial Post
subscription requests to UBC
students. The Financial Post then
sold the names to Time, said AMS
president Dave Frank.
UBC students are currently prospective members of the federation.
A vote on the $7.50 full membership fee at UBC will probably occur
in the next 18 months.
Courts now open
The controversial contract booking
procedure for squash and racquetball courts on campus is no more, at
least until January.
Thunderbird Winter Sports Centre manager Paul Trustham said
Thursday the centre, which has two
racquetball and four squash courts,
suspended the guaranteed weekly
time system in August on a trial
"The courts should be accessible
to the students, that was the key
part of the new policy," Trustham
said. "It's an open court booking
system rather than a closed court
Trustham said the response to the
change has been very positive. Only
one person has formally complained about the lack of contract times,
he said.
The new system will: be evaluated
in November, when a decision will
be made on making it permanent,
he said.
Trustham added that the centre
policy of mandatory use of eye protection would be enforced this year.
Rapist convicted
A rapist who attacked a 30 year-
old woman and a 12 year-old girl in
separate endowment land incidents
last year was convicted in May of
rape and indecent assault.
Vancouver resident Leonard
Gary Wickenden, 33, was found
guilty by a nine man, three woman
The attacks, which occurred in
daylight on Sept. 17 and Oct. 13,
1981, caused the RCMP to increase
their patrols of the area. RCMP apprehended Wickenden Nov. 6, after
three 12 year-old girls noticed a
man in the voods matching a
published description..
UEL goes condo
The university is. considering
building condominiums for faculty
and staff on university land in
Acadia  Camp,  student board of
B-LOT BARN . . . demolition prevented
governors representative Dave Dale
told student council.
The revenue from the housing
could be used to renovate and eventually replace Acadia Camp army
huts, Dale said.
A shortage of funds and high interest rates means the project is on
indefinite hold, Dale said.
AMS goes red
Some Alma Mater Society executive members are seeing red and
some are seeing black over the
society's 1981-82 financial
The AMS had an "excess of
revenue over expenditure" of
$16,000 for fiscal year ending in
April, finance director James Hollis
said. The society had budgeted to
have a $25,000 surplus for the year.
But AMS president Dave Frank
says the surplus is actually a $40,000
deficit. "We spent $56,000 from
capital reserve funds last year, and
we are only putting $16,000 (the
surplus) back in — that's a $40,000
Year-end surpluses are placed in
reserve funds for future replacement of society assets and minor
Three years ago the AMS had a
$217,000 surplus, while two years
ago a $35,000 "excess" resulted.
The 1982-83 AMS budget and the
1981-82 financial statements are
printed in this issue of The Ubyssey.
RCMP patrol SUB
An RCMP officer visited The
Ubyssey office after the paper
released details of the force's
surveillance operation of SUB
bulletin boards.
A university detachment officer
expressed the force's disappointment after an editorial entitled
"RCMP's latest bulletin" appeared
in the August 11 edition.
The RCMP had been looking for
references to the group "Direct Action," which claimed responsibility
for blowing up B.C. Hydro's
Dunsmuir power station while
under construction on Vancouver
Island. The summer paper also ran
the phrase "Direct Action" instead
of the paper's logo in the editorial
page masthead.
The Ubyssey learned of another
RCMP surveillance operation in
March, when a reporter discovered
an RCMP operation in a vacant
campus building. Since the operation concerned theft from students,
the paper did not publish details of
the operation.
AMS goes plastic
Will that be cash or charge?
That is the question you may be
asked soon in SUB, after a recent
decision by Alma Mater Society
finance director James Hollis to accept Master Card and Visa in AMS
Initially cards will be accepted
only in the AMS copy centre and
gallery lounge, Hollis said. Card use
may be extended to other AMS service areas such as undergraduate
society sales and Ubyssey ads in the
near future, he said.
The service, which marks a
"quantum leap into the world of
modern-day fiscal wonderment,"
according to Hollis, should start by
Sept. 20.
AMtvOTEU settle
After coming close to a strike
with its unionized business office
employees last year, the Alma
Mater Society has already settled
this year's contract.
Council approved the recommendations of finance director James
Hollis that the union be given a 10
per cent wage increase, and an increased benefits package.
Last year the union settled for 15
per cent.
Frats faced hike
The provincial ministry of land,
parks and housing considered raising UBC fraternity house rents this
summer to $30,000 per year from
the present $1,500 over the next five

We of the CITR Disco staff
would like to respond to Kevin
McGee's Freestyle column of
August 11, 1982. We appreciate his
comments as we consider any articulated criticism of our performance in the Pit valuable.
However, his comments are
rendered somewhat ambiguous by
his insistence on using such
nebulous labels as "disco" and
"new wave." To our knowledge
these terms have never been unequivocally defined, and thus their
parameters are endless and totally
When we play music in the Pit on
Wednesdays and Saturdays, we
have to consider the vast range of
musical tastes embodied in the wide
cross section of people who frequent the Pit on those particular
nights. Needless to say we will never
be entirely successful, and every
song we play is going to alienate
somebody who questions the merit
of certain musical genres, be they
the "newer" tunes or the "proven
standards" to which Kevin McGee
so lovingly refers.
The fact is, there are many people
who are sick to death of dancing to
such dinosaurs as the Stones,
Beatles, Who, etc., and certainly,
the wishes of these people are as
worthy of consideration as
everyone else's. This is not to say
that we refuse to play the "hits."
What we do reject is the idea of
playing the Stones, Beatles, Who,
etc. exclusively, ad nauseum. So we
are left to try to tangle with the insurmountable problem of walking
the musical tightrope, from which
we often plunge into the quagmire
of disfavour.
We were mildly amused by Kevin
McGee's reference to "obscure,
plodding, non-rhythmic specimens
which deservedly have never received any airplay." The reason that
such songs (if any so described do
exist in our Pit repertoire) have
never received any "commercial
airplay" is obvious. Commercial
radio stations in Vancouver are
among the most conservative on the
continent and are never prepared to
play anything that doesn't conform
to the standard pop (pap?) commercial formula for fear of driving
away their sponsors who are
generally businessmen more
geriatric than Kevin McGee purports to be.
Obviously, they're frightened of
anything that threatens the status
quo. These radio stations are doing
the listening public a great disservice by not presenting the whole
musical picture. Thus many people
who listen to these stations are ignorant of everything outside of the
limited scope of the commercial
playlist and have a strange ingrained prejudice against almost
anything that they haven't been
"forced" to like due to commercial
Kevin McGee's statement that the
songs we play in the Pit have never
received airplay because they
"stink" is a hopelessly misguided,
subjective generalization.
It seems clear that Kevin McGee
is vehemently opposed to the
greater part of the music we are currently playing. Maybe when some
of this "shit" is finally picked up by
the Johnnie-come-lately commercial radio stations he will change his
tune. Many have. Cases in point are
such mega hits as Human League's
"Don't You Want Me?" and Soft
Cell's "Tainted Love."
We were playing these songs in
the Pit (to mixed reaction) months
before they got local radio airplay.
Now these songs are at least as
popular in the Pit as any Stones or
Beatles songs.
Also we have cultivated a number
of "Pit hits" on our own. Such
bands as the Clash, Stray Cats,
Romeo Void, Iggy Pop, Chris
Spedding and many others go over
New wave commitment
extremely well. These artists have
received very little or no commercial airplay and thus have relied on
their own inherent merit in gaining
wide-spread appeal among the Pit
We would also like to point out
the fact that Wednesday has
become the most successful night of
the week at the Pit since we began
to provide music. In fact a couple
of sales records have been established on Wednesday Pit "disco" (if
you'll pardon the expression,
Kevin) nights. If only for this
reason we have to wonder why people continue to favour us with their
presence if indeed the musical situation at the Pit is as horrible and
torturous as Kevin McGee has made
it out to be.
Finally, a word on "polite requests." It has been our experience
that the average person who makes
a request is polite, patient and
courteous. We try our best to ac
commodate as many of these people
as possible, but considering that we
get an average of 50 requests a
night, it is difficult to play them all.
What we object to are the obnoxious self-righteous jerks who see it
as their right to spew forth a steady
stream of obscenities and insults in
our direction because they can't
hear their favourite Jimi Hendrix
It doesn't seem to matter to these
selfish and irrational people that
their requests might be absolutely
undanceable. Trying to reason with
such people is futile because some
of them get so worked up about not
getting their asinine way that they
childishly threaten to get violent.
These are the airheads, not us.
We don't know Kevin Mcgee, but
he appears to be a good deal more
lucid than most of our detractors,
and we aren't equating him with
those described above. Nevertheless, we think it is rather
presumptuous on his part to imply
(as we believe he does) that his
somewhat overstated opinion
represents that of the majority of
Pit patrons.        CITR Disco Staff

Old Fort in Pit
The big three breweries are out,
and Old Fort is in.
In August, the Pit changed its
source of draft beer to the Prince
George Old Fort brewery for financial reasons.
AMS finance director James
Hollis said the new beer "appears
to have had good acceptance and
the price savings for switching to
this company make it worthwhile,"
after a one-month trial period.
The Pit will save more than
$12,000 a year by switching to the

Food prices up
Increased food cost and a 13 per

staff caused price hikes of up to 40
per cent at food services during the
Food service director Christine
Samson also said the new Subway
cafeteria lost $251,000 last year.
"But food services just managed to
break even."
Food cost represents approximately 43 per cent of the price of
food, said Samson. The rest goes to
cover wages and the $1.5 million
spent on renovations last summer.
Gears ain't Rich
UBC's engineers are in the red.
The engineering undergraduate
society is $42,000 in debt, James
Hollis, Alma Mater Society finance
director, said June 24.
Hollis said the settlement of a
$17,500 debt to the Pacific National
Exhibition, major losses from poor
attendance at events, over-
purchasing of drafting kits and
long-term outstanding debts are
major factors in the shortfall.
Hollis also blamed the debt on
the former EUS bookkeeping
"The EUS is a huge operation in
which there were no internal controls," Hollis said. "They ran a
$250,000 corporation out of shoe
Council approved a re-payment
scheme of $10,000 per year for the
next five years at its August 23
Hollis was unsuccessful in getting
council to implement an additional
undergraduate society fee levy on
the EUS to repay the debt. Under
the AMS constitution, council can
request the board of governors to
levy a fee without student approval
if an undergraduate society goes in
Day warned Hollis against pursuing the extra board levy against
EUS wishes. "The political
ramifications of getting it through
the board (of governors) is
something I want to avoid."
AMS vice president Cliff Stewart
also criticised Hollis' method. "By
going to the board we are saying
we've lost control of ourselves. It
would not be politically wise."
Five dollars of the current EUS
fee will go directly to repaying the
debt, EUS president Rich Day said.
In this way, EUS members would
have to vote more money for the
society, Day said.
The nursing undergraduate society is in debt by $4,000, while science
undergraduate society is $7,300 in
the hole, Hollis said.
Proposal popped
Student council popped a corny
proposal this summer by Alma
Mater Society finance director
James Hollis.
Council overwhelmingly defeated
a motion from Hollis to spend
$40,000 to build a popcorn stand in
the SUB auditorium.
"Popcorn and theaters are a proven thing," Hollis told council.
Council members said an inadequate study had been done on the
proposal, and instead voted to setup a temporary refreshment stand
on a trial basis.
Kane appeal rejected
The board of governors has rejected the appeal of a professor
suspended for 18 months by the
university administration after he
was convicted of two counts of
theft from government research
In a two hour hearing before the
board July 6, animal resources
ecology professor Julius Kane, accused administration and faculty
members of misconduct in dealing
with the theft allegation against
him. Kane also accused two former
university employees of creating
evidence against him and committing perjury.
Kane said after the hearing he
would appeal the suspension to the
supreme court of B.C. if the board
turned him down.
"The result didn't surprise me,"
Kane said in a telephone interview
from his Bellingham home. "The
administration was stone-walling all
The hearing, originally scheduled
for the closed part of the board
meeting, was opened to reporters
after Kane requested it. "I will meet
the administration in open proceeding," he said. "It's time all this
shit was in the open."
University lawyer D.W. Goldie
said Kane's comments were
defamatory and attacked the: integrity of university officials.

guess the (hearing) committee,"
Goldie said. Kane had knowingly
deceived a government funding
agency and had ample opportunity
to prove his innocence in court. and

Council grant in 1976.

Kane filed an appeal of his
criminal conviction with the
supreme court of Canada after the
B.C. court of appeal ruled against
him in June.
It is alleged Kane used the grants
to subsidize personal activities, including writing a book and organizing real estate transactions.
All the work he did was academic
in nature, and not for his personal
gain, Kane contends.
BoG creates jobs
The UBC board of governors has
created more than 500 student jobs.
At its July 6 meeting, the board
voted to allocate $500,000 from the
current $6.4 million surplus to job
creation under the provincial
employment opportunities for
youth (EOY) and work-study pro
grams. The move came as a result
of Alma Mater Society lobbying.
"It's a really positive step," said
AMS president Dave Frank. "Student employment is extremely
In a 20-minute presentation to
the board, Frank and AMS vice
president Cliff Stewart said this is
the worst year in recent history for
student employment. They told the
board job applications at UBC's
student employment centre are up
16 per cent, while the number of
available positions is down 26 per
cent and the average wage is down
10 per cen* from last year.
Frank said the board's response
is exactly what the AMS representatives had hoped for.

whenever you go to the board or administration with a plan that's well
thought out, they go for it," he
said. "This request made a hell of a
lot of sense."

Lack of flexible electives concerned many senators. Under the
new program, electives must be
chosen from chemistry, math and
other science fields. Forestry
students will now be able to
graduate with a minimum arts requirement of english 100, student
senator Lisa Hebert said.
Enrolment limited
The board of governors narrowly
voted in favor of limiting enrolment
in first-year architecture to 40
students June 1.
Architecture school head Doug
Shadbolt told the board a large
number of students returning to upper years in the school, together
with a massive cut as a result of a
retrenchment last year, made the
restriction necessary.

Frank told the board that
creating more bursaries would
benefit fewer students. About
$250,000 of the allocation will go to
supplement the $6.75 an hour offered by the provincial
government's work-study program.
The minimum wage at UBC is $8.02
an hour, in accordance with union
agreements. About 225 part-time
jobs will be created.
Under the plan adopted by the
board, the other $250,000 went
towards creating full-time jobs for
the rest of the summer. It was used
to boosts the $600 a month EOY
salary to $800, and to create 24 jobs
at $800 a month.
Any money remaining from the
$500,000 will go towards the bursary fund. The board stressed that
the grant is one time only,, resulting
from the 1981-82 operating surplus.
Students get listed
UBC students will now be in "the
Council allocated up to $4,000
this summer to start-up a student
phone book this year. The 75 cent
books, to be sold through the AMS
and undergraduate societies will include names and phone numbers
for all students who opted for the
directory on their registration form.
The AMS formerly published a
phone book called Bird Calls until
the early 70's when it stopped for
unknown reasons.
Forestry four years
Forestry is now a four year program at UBC.
In May, the senate approved the
change after a heated debate. Under
"It will take two or three years to
get control of the upper years,"
Shadbolt said. After this period,
barring further financial cuts, first-
year enrolment could be increased,
he said.
"As many as possible should be
educated," said the government appointee Richard Stewart, who opposed the motion. Stewart said that
while he sympathized with the
budget problems of the school, "we
owe it to the young people of this
"We are not depriving people of
anything," said administration
president Doug Kenny. "All we are
saying is that they won't necessarily
get their first choice."
The computer science department imposed limited enrolment by
course during the summer.
However, the program has no upper limit on enrolment, so many
third and fourth year students will
find it hard to get their course, student senator Lisa Hebert said Monday.
B-lot barn saved
UBC students now have a chance
to save a possible heritage building
for their use, following a summer
board of governors decision.
The board decided against an administration request to tear down a
white wooden barn, built in 1919,
currently in the middle of "B" lot.
Administration president Doug
Kenny said the barn should be
demolished to prevent future
building grants being jeopardized,
he said.
Since the building is still standing,   it   will   be  counted   in   the
university's space inventory, Kenny
said. This will hinder additional
capital funding requests he added.
Administration vice president
James Kennedy said the building
would cost too much to bring up to
standards. "It should either be used
for dead storage or demolished."
But the barn received a new lease
on life after student lobbying. The
board will hear a presentation from
student council at its October
meeting, scheduled for the SUB
council chambers.
Alma Mater society president
Dave Frank said the AMS could
lease the barn from the university,
and possibly upgrade it for student
use. This would have the effect of
removing the barn from the university's space inventory, Frank said.
SUB cops created
If your bad in SUB, the SUB
cops will get you.
Wearing "AMS Security"
t-shirts SUB security team members
will be patrolling the building on
weekends to enforce SUB building
policy and liquor regulations.
The team idea was created by the
student administrative commission,
a group appointed by student council to oversee club and SUB operations. Council, which must approve
SAC actions, did not question the
team creation.
The team will patrol hallways to
ensure alcohol is legally consumed
in SUB, and that no illegal drugs,
vandalism, or drunkeness occurs in
Team members, with the exception of the "security chief will not
be permitted to enter functions,
unless a major problem occurs, according to team guidelines.
AMS rejects McGeer
Any faculty member remaining a
provincial cabinet minister for a
period longer than seven years or
two consecutive elections should
forfeit his or her tenure at UBC,
student council decided August 25.
Arts representative Jon Gates
criticised the motion for indirectly
mentioning university minister Pat
McGeer, a UBC neurology prof.
"If we want to nail McGeer, let's
nail the son of a bitch," said Gates.
The board of governors is risking
university funding if it turns
McGeer down said Gates.
Graduate studies representative
Bill Tieleman defended the motion
saying it wasn't McGeer that council should be after. "We have
regulations. (We should show that)
we don't change them for any one
The motion passed five to four
with more than 10 abstensions. Student board of governors representatives will present council's view to
the board.
Vice- provost appt.
UBC has a new vice provost.
Neil Reisborough, a mettalurgy
prof and current director of the
engineering undergraduate core
program will assume the administrative position Jan. 1.
Registrar Ken Young has been acting vice provost since the position
was created almost two years ago.
The vice provost position reports
to academic vice president Michael
Shaw on student service departments. Housing, food services,
counselling and others report to the
A university selection committee
tried unsuccessfully last year to appoint someone. The university
eventually convinced Reisborough,
a very popular person amongst
engineering students, to accept the
position, said Young. Page 28

Thunderbirds decimate Manitoba
The UBC Thunderbirds Football
team is "definitely" the team to
beat" in the Western Intercollegiate Football League this
year, a WIFL coach said Sept. 3.
Manitoba Bison coach Dennis
Hrycaiko made the comment after
UBC decimated his team 37-6 in the
'Birds home-opener before 500 people at Thunderbird stadium.
UBC is now at the top of the
WIFL standings, with six points,
followed by Saskatchewan, Calgary
and Manitoba, all with two points.
On Saturday, UBC gave more
evidence that Hrycaiko was correct
when they whipped the University
of Alberta Golden Bears 32-4 in Edmonton. "We really played well all
over," said UBC head coach Frank
A 95 yard punt return and
touchdown by Laurent Deslauriers
set a new WIFL record, while Ken
Munro kicked three field goals and
three converts. UBC linebackers
combined for six quarterback
sacks, and a two point safety.
Smith doesn't think his team will
get too self-confident with their
commanding lead in the standings.
"We play each game one at a
Running back Glen Steele, a
member of the Canadian all-star
team, ran for 188 yards and one
touchdown, while Bob Ros and
Laurent Deslauriers had one
touchdown each.
The previous week against the
Bisons, UBC ran up a 33-0 half time
lead, before taking the second half
easy, coasting to an easy victory.
Smith removed many first string
players during the second half, to
prevent possible injury and to provide experience for others. Smith
gave up many extra scoring opportunities in the second half, prefering
to try new plays. In one instance,
with third down and nine, UBC attempted a first down, instead of
getting an almost certain field goal.
"We wanted to see how the side
performed," Smith said.
UBC blocked several Bison
punts, the first leading to a Steele
touchdown at 2:12, by overloading
one side of the line. "It took them
four times to figure out we were
overloading," said defensive back
Bernie Glier.
A spectacular UBC touchdown
went to Brian Branting, who kicked
a fumble into the end zone, then
recovered to score.
Dave Palcholki took a 47-yard pass
from quarterback Jay Gard for
another touchdown and Kent Bowling made a two yard run for a UBC
Ken Munro had three field goals
and three converts against the
Bisons, the same scoring pattern he
had a week later against Alberta.
Manitoba's only points came in
the second half, in which they
outscored UBC 6-4, when Bison
kicker Darrel Batt got two field
In their first game of the season
UBC defeated the University of
Calgary Dinosaurs 37-17 in Calgary
August 27.
UBC's next game is this weekend
when they travel to Saskatoon to
take on the University of Saskatchewan Huskies (1-1). The 'Birds
will host Calgary October 1, 7:30
p.m. at Thunderbird stadium.

Basketball 'Birds
leave for China
The UBC mens basketball team
leaves next week for a two week
tour of China and Korea.
The Thunderbirds will stay one
week at Zhongshan University,
UBC's sister university in Canton,
China and several days in Korea,
competing against university and
club teams.
"I knew that UBC signed an
agreement with Zhongshan University and heard that they were interested in an exchange program"
said UBC's director of athletics and
sport services Friday.
"These kinds of things give UBC
a name internationally, said Robert
Hindmarch who is also vice-
president of the Canadian Olympic
Association.  Optimistic about the
possibility of future exchanges, he
is now working on a volleyball exchange with Korea.
"We hope to establish criteria so
that there can be proper rotation (of
teams)" Hindmarch said adding
that the Thunderbirds were in
China once before when the mens
ice hockey team toured northern
China in 1973.
Other teams that have toured
overseas include womens field
hockey to Scotland in 1982, mens
rugby to Ireland in 1981, and
womens ice hockey to Japan in

'Birds worked for several days as
part of their tour.
The tour will be good experience
for this year's relatively inexperienced team under new coach Bob
Molinski. The 'Birds finished last

lost their best player, UBC male
athlete of the year Bob Forsyth.
Molinski, who coached Argyle to

The Ubyssey
The San Diego Chicken is coming
to UBC.
The two legged pile of feathers
and noise that earned the San Diego
Padres thousands of dollars before
it started freelancing is doing the
rounds of Canadian universities.
After the chicken's success in
Victoria last year, AMS programs
director Bruce Paisley plucked
some strings and lured the bird to
egg on his football cousins at UBC.
The T-Birds meet ihe University of
Alberta* Golden Bears October 15
and hope the chicken will help them
repeat last weekend's 32-4 victory
over the team that beat them to the
western title last year.
But the AMS thinks the chicken
will help them make lots of money
by charging students entrance to the
game and then selling them lots of
beer. But the yolk may be on the
AMS when students find out their
AMS fee is supposed to admit them
free to regular season games.
