Breaking
out of the
sexist trap
Harry Brim
gayness is power
By GLEN SANFORD
When Harry Britt was a young school student, he experienced his first crush on
another boy. Within six months of their first
kiss though,the boy died of cancer. At the
time, Britt sincerely believed this was God's
punishment for his homosexuality.
"I learned when I was a very small boy
that power was not going to be mine if I was
going to be gay," says Britt.
He was born in
Fort Arthur, Texas.
He spent eight years
as a Methodist minister in Texas and
Chicago. He holds a
Master of Divinity
from the Southern Methodist University.
And today, as an elected representative on
San Francisco's board of supervisors, he is
one of the most prominent gay activists in
the United States.
"All of us are trapped in a sexist world
that does not allow us to develop naturally as
homosexuals or heterosexuals," Britt told 50
people at UBC Thursday. "We on the left
have to offer people that sense of control
over their lives."
Britt says all exploited people — gays and
lesbians, women, disabled people, racial
minorities — have been taught they have no
power.
"But we will regain our power. 'We' being
all groups in society who have been taught to
be weak but should know better because we
are the majority.
"Black people are still expected to live by
rules made by white people, the same as
women are expected to live by rules made by
men, the same as homosexuals are expected
to live by rules made by straights. All people
who are expected to be powerless by those
with power must fight together. They must
start asserting their power."
Britt is optimistic for the left in the United
States because more and more people are
becoming angry that power is being taken
from them.
"Thanks to our friend Ronald Reagan, it
is easy to find people who feel allienated
these days?' he says. "Exploited people are
coming together with the gay community.
We are finding people want problems solved
in natural ways."
Britt is relaxed, confident. Although he's
under burning television lights in a dark and
unnatural room, he seems perfectly comfortable. Arid so does the audience.
He talks about power, but he is far from
intimidating.
"Politics is about power. Being gay is
about power, Being a woman is about
power," he says. "I have yet to find a gay
person who acted out of a sense of power
and regretted it.
"Everyone who has talked to me knows
I'm gay. I have no way of not being gay.
And I love it."
He says the most important question facing homosexuals is what they decide to do
with their power once they've discovered
and accepted it.
"I'm sure all of you can relate to the experience I had when I first came to San Francisco. If you've thought you're the only
queer in the whole world—and I thought I
was for 20 years—to finally reach out and
touch other people and share the gay experience is a wonderful thing."
But he says gays and lesbians must share
their experience with the rest of the world.
Homosexuals should get activily involved in
political movements, and the primary problem to tackle is homophobia.
"We must cast off all strategies that do
not challenge homophobia," Britt says.
"For future generations we must get rid of
homophobia so gays and lesbians can grow
up naturally — or straights that don't want
to live in the narrow confines now imposed
by society.
"To me, being gay goes beyond who you
have sex with. It's not just something to do
with homosexuality, but a set of feeling and
desires within ourselves that's totally out of
sync with ideas around us."
Despite Reagan's sweep to political
power, Britt does not believe the right will
retain a foothold in American politics.
"The leaders of the right look increasingly
pathetic and stupid. There just isn't
anything going for it.
"The right has no solutions, but it can be

a pain in the ass in the short run.
There is no possibility that the
right's economic system is going to
work. The only people with solutions are the left."
He is cautious about the political
future, but he insists the leaders of
the Moral Majority are through.
"They may kill us all, but they're
still irrelevant."
Britt says: "I know I was swept in
(to San Francisco's board of supervisors) on Ronald Reagan's coat
tails. And I know we are not swinging to the right. The world is just
changing so fast people can't cope
with it.
"People are caught by surprise at
how fast the changes are taking
place. But the historical fact of our
time is not Ronald Reagan but the
technical, industrial and social advancement of the human race."
But while he believes the Moral
Majority doesn't seriously threaten
the future, he notes: "The economy
of the United States is going to hell
fast. And if that happens, there is a
real threat of fascist takeover."
Nonetheless, Britt has hopes for
the future.
"I'm extremely optimistic. I
would quit my job if I wasn't optimistic because I'm not about to
spend my time fighting a losing
battle.
"If we survive (society's current
instability) there is a very real
possiblity for a much better future
— and I plan to survive."
He feels the rest of society will
survive too  and  he sees hope in
many different areas.
"I'm very, very confident about
women. Women are simply not going to continue to be what Proctor
and Gamble wants them to be."
Even on university campuses
Britt sees hope. He believes students
are conservative and career-
oriented, "but that's because they
don't see the possibility to change.
"When Ronald Reagan starts
drafting pre-med students to fight
in El Salvador, they're not going to
want to go."

thusiasm for social change is a sign
of the man's resiliance. He maintains confidence for he future
despite the Moral Majority, despite
hate mail, despite the shooting
deaths of friends in political office.
Britt was a friend of Harvey
Milk, a San Francisco supervisor
who was looked upon as a leader of
the gay community. On Nov. 26,
1978, Milk was slain along with
Mayor George Moscone by former
supervisor Dan White.
"Dan White could not deal with
what Harvey Milk represented. The
day we woke up to find out our
leader had been taken away from
us, I experienced a sense of power
I've never felt before in my life.
Within hours we had organized a
massive march downtown, and the
strength of our community was
really felt."
Britt says that before Milk gained
office, "none of us really believed
we could elect a homosexual mayor
without compromising the gay experience. But Harvey Milk proved
that you could."
Britt succeeded Milk as a supervisor, and in December, 1979, was
elected to a full term on the board
of supervisors.
He was elected in at-large elections, but has fought for a return to
the ward system in San Francisco.
He says when each district elects its
own representative, the politicians
are forced to be more accountable
to the people.
"I would hope lesbians and gays
of Vancouver would make the ward
system a top priority," Britt says.
Britt was the keynote speaker for
gay and lesbian week at UBC. He
spoke to about 50 students at noon
in Buchanan 100, and conducted a
brief interview with The Ubyssey
following his speech.

By JULIE WHEELWRIGHT
At 18, Joyce Bichler discovered that she
had advanced cervical cancer.
At 18, Joyce Bichler underwent surgery
which left her with one ovary and a quarter
of her vagina.
In 1953 American doctors discovered that
Diethylstilbestrol, synthetic estrogen which
was being hailed as a wonder drug for pregnant women, was totally ineffective in
preventing miscarriage, and was linked with
cancer in the user's children.
In 1953 Joyce Bichler's mother took DES,
on advice from her family doctor, to prevent
a possible miscarriage.
In 1971 the American Food and Drug Administration finally banned DES for use during pregnancy but only after millions of
women had taken the drug and startling
numbers of their children developed cancer.
Bichler was the first DES daughter to take
her case to court and win. Her autobiography
reveals the nightmare of her surgery, her
fierce determination that the system which
allowed Eli Lilly to market a known, harmful
product, should be exposed.
DES Daughter
By Joyce Bichler
Avon Books, 192 pages, $2.25
When Bichler was a first year student at a
New York university, she began to have extended menstrual periods. Slowly she began
to realize that there was something very
wrong with her reproductive system and
when she finally saw a gynecologist, the doctor accused her of having a botched abortion.
"Dr. Collier was chatting to me as he inserted the speculum. I didn't really hear what
he was saying. All I could hear was my heart
beating. There was a silence as the doctor
peered between my legs. 'My God,' he suddenly shouted. 'You look like chopped meat
in there!'
Suddenly Dr. Collier was standing over my
head. 'Where on earth did you have the abortion?' he demanded angrily. 'Come on now,
it's obvious you've had an abortion. And
whoever did it made a good mess.' "
Bichler's story also exposes the bungling
and inhumane medical system which exists
for many Americans. When Bichler first
suspected a problem and phoned for a doctor's appointment, she waited for six weeks.
When her appointment finally arrived, she
waited hours to actually see the doctor. One
doctor actually took a Pap smear, and told
Bichler the test was negative. She was given
suppositories for a vaginal infection, and
when she returned, bleeding, a few days
later, she was given a lecture on birth control.
And Bichler was lucky; her father had a
medical plan that could cover her medical expenses. She had a family that could support
her emotionally during her year long
recovery.

But Bichler's struggle did not stop there.
At a routine visit to her gynecologist for a
check-up, Bichler's doctor mentioned a
Herbst registry that listed the women who
has suffered cervical carcinoma and whose
mother had taken DES during pregnancy.
Bichler was number 70.
Two years later when "a strong sense of injustice and anger" surfaced in her mind,
Bichler went to an attorney with her case and
it was not until seven years later that it came
to trial.
It was a two-part trial; the first to establish
that Eli Lilly and Company was the manufacturer of the drug Bichler's mother had taken
and if the first trial established that Lilly was

the manufacturer, they would become the defendant.
If the first trial was lost, the second would
proceed on a joint product liability theory to
contend that even though it could not be proven who did manufacture the drug, the pharmaceutical companies were all equally
responsible, since they had acted together to
have the drug certified.
"Here I was, little Joyce Bichler, fighting
Eli Lilly and company, one of the major
manufacturing drug companies in the world.
My case was of great importance to all DES
daughters around the country. I, at least, was
getting the opportunity to go to court,"
writes Bichler of the time before her trial.
In many states, other DES daughters had
been prevented from taking their cases to
court by the statue of limitations and the problem of identification since none of the victims developed symptoms until 12 years after
their mothers had taken DES.
Bichler's documentation of her trial reveals
to what extent a company like Lilly will go to
protect its name and its coffers. The pharmacy where Mrs. Bichler clearly remembered
buying DES had lost its records in a fire. Lilly
also claimed it had "accidentally" lost all its
sales records for the same period.
And Mr. Willing, the pharmacist, who
swore to Joyce's mother she had been given
Lilly's DES during her pregnancy, lied before
the jury and denied even knowing Mrs. Bichler.
The Bichler's lost the first trial, but with
determination, braved another.
It was during the second trial that further
evidence of the drug company's corruption
was revealed. In her simple, straight-forward
style, Bichler describes her growing horror at
what the public had been exposed to because
of corporate profits.
Dr. Alan Goldman, a renowned
teratologist, gave evidence that the drug companies had never done animal testing of the
drug before it was approved. In fact, animal
studies showing the link between DES and
cancer were conducted in the 1940's and ignored, even although some medical journals
warned of the dangers of DES in editorials.
Goldman also said that DES had never
been tested on pregnant animals before it was
given to pregnant women and he was
astonished because if tests had been done, as
they were years later, they would have revealed cancer of the cervix and vagina in the offspring of mice. It was also found that the
drug companies were aware of DES's lack of
efficacy in the late 1940's.
"As Dr. Goldman explained all this, I
found myself clenching my fists with rage. I
had known that the drug companies had
done incompetent research, but I hadn't
realized that they had been quiet as irresponsible as this respected doctor was saying.
They hadn't bothered to do a simple and
necessary test that would have prevented all
the pain and suffering that I and others had
had to endure. They had just used pregnant
women as the guinea pigs, in completely
unreliable tests," writes Bichler.
In 1953, even more damaging evidence surfaces. The Deickman study found that DES
did not prevent miscarriages and that the
risks involved in taking the drug were high.
Bichler puts her feelings at this point in the
trial simply: "I had gotten cancer because the
only thing the drug companies had cared
about was profits."
Even the top researcher for Lilly during the
1940's admitted that a link with cancer had
been found but that it was not "significant"
and the company continued to work towards
the Food and Drug Administration approval.
And how did the FDA approve a drug
which had no known usefulness?
Theodore Klumpp, who was the FDA
director when DES was approved, was instrumental in getting it on the market. He admitted no independent research was done by
the FDA and the agency based its decision on
work done by the drug companies
themselves. The company only admitted
research it felt was important.
"I had always viewed the FDA as an independent agency that monitored, among
other things, the pharmaceutical industry.
Was I ever wrong! The ties between that industry and the FDA are almost as close as
those between the drug companies
themselves," said Bichler.
While Klumpp worked for the FDA he
made $6,000 a year. After DES was approved, Klumpp became the president of Win-
throp Labratories, (one of the drug companies filing for DES approval) with a salary
of $30,000 a year. "I learned later that
almost every FDA commissioner during that
time went from their FDA position to head
one of the major pharmaceutical
companies."
The Wonder Drug you should wonder about
DES ACTION ... ad warns
daughters and sons about possible cancer and other diseases
associated with the drug.
But the most forceful and moving
testimony of the trial comes from Bichler
herself. Throughout the book, she describes
how her anger grew as the injustice of her
situation and others was clarified through the
testimony of the corporate employees and the
evidence of the independent researchers.
"I was speaking to Beatie (the defending
lawyer) and all the people who represented
Eli Lilly and Company. I was speaking to the
people who were responsible for my cancer.
"I was conscious of forcing my words
through quivering lips as seven years of harbored rage emerged. I looked across at all
those lawyers working for Lilly, defending a
company that had caused to much pain and
suffering. The anger at that precise point was
so intense it scared me. 'It never should have
happened, it never should have happened to
me or anyone else. It didn't have to happen.
It never should have happened.' "
My cheeks were burning as hot tears of bitterness poured down my face. And I broke
down completely as I confessed that the
reason I worked with the elderly was that I
didn't think that I would ever get to be old
myself.''
As the jury deliberated for a week, Lilly
made an offer of $100,000 to Bichler. She
declined and days later the jurors
unanimously awarded her $500,000 in
damages.
Bichler describes herself as a survivor. But
even though she is eight years post-surgery
and in good health, she describes the fear
that is with her constantly. "For years, every
time I had an ache or pain, deep down inside
a voice would come up and ask if this was a
recurrence of cancer somewhere in my body.
Another voice would answer and say No,
don't be ridiculous. But the fear haunted me
constantly."
Bichler is only one of thousands, perhaps
millions who are victims of DES. The drug
was not banned until 1971 but it is still
marketed under different names. An appendix to the book lists 82.
One can only feel gratitude towards
Bichler for having the courage to write about
her experience. No one should have to suffer
what she did and a book which recounts her
story and its victory is certainly a step
towards solving the problem. Page 4

Textiles — a creative impulse
beyond function to beauty
By CORINNA SUNDARARAJAN
Textiles are traditionally the art
of women, so it is fitting that the
UBC Fine Arts Gallery should
display scores of handcrafted articles in time for Women's Week
celebrations. Largely dating from
the 19th and early 20th centuries,
The Birth Symbol in Traditional
Women's Art has more personal
impact than the usual stare-and-
stride-on fare of framed exhibits.
LBC Fine Arts Gallery
The Birth Symbol in Traditional
Women's Art from Eurasia and the
Western Pacific. .
Feb. 3-28
Here, each knot, each stitch,
each loop tells of the craftswoman
behind it. For unlike the paintings,
photographs and sketches of past
displays, these articles are uniquely
functional, expressly made to serve
a household purpose. But they are
not merely utilities — and here is
where the craftswomen emerge —
they are works of art.
From finely woven silk jackets to
rough woollen wall hangings,
minute knotted rugs to boldly
tasselled belts, delicately embroidered purses to expansive hooked tent flaps, some impulse
motivated these women to struggle
beyond functional form and create
a decorative beauty.
This creation, not production, of
textiles is a uniquely feminine art
largely undervalued by art
historians who have focused on
their functional aspect and labelled
them "crafts". Yet the women's
patient clatter of looms and piercing of needles throughout the ages
have created a private sense of artistry, a creativity grounded firmly
within traditional roles, yet determinedly individualistic.
An almost secretive symbol of
this artistry developed quickly
across the globe, from the dyed
sarongs of the Western Pacific to
the knotted camel headgear of
Eurasia, unifying the diverse traditions of these craftswomen. This
symbol, the Birth Symbol, is
universal, too complicated to be
meaningless and too ancient to be
accidental. In its simplest form it
appears as a diamond with pairs of
lines projecting like arms and legs
from the top and bottom vertices,
representative of the Earth Goddess. The symbol of feminine
creativity, it appears in all the works
on display.
Indeed The Birth Symbol in
Traditional Women's Art is itself a
symbol of this feminine creativity,
rendered universally in textiles, and
uniquely transcending the functional with an impulse of self-
expression.

Making Love not 'groundbreaking'
By SHAFFIN SHARIFF
LOS ANGELES — "I don't think the film is
ahead of its time," says producer Allen
Adler, about his film, Making Love.
Adler is more correct than he thinks. But
Making Love is bound to generate considerable controversy because of its subject
matter. The film is about a married man's attempts to come to terms with his long
repressed homosexuality.
Making Love
Directed by Arthur Hiller
Starring Michael Ontkean,  Kate Jackson,
and Harry Hamlin
Opening today at Capitol Six
Making Love is a safe, cautious film. If it
seems like a "ground-breaking" picture, it is
only because it represents one of the few
times a studio has thrown its support behind
the project. United Artists got burned with
the William Friedkin film Cruising, but
Twentieth Century Fox will not suffer the
same fate.
Hiller's film is more likely to please than
offend people. There isn't a single surprise in
the whole movie — every plot development is
guarded and tastefully done; even the confrontation scene, in which the wife (Kate
Jackson) confronts her husband, Zack
(Michael Ontkean), is emotionally vapid.
The problem with Making Love is that it is
a tame movie. For all its faults, Friedkin's
Cruising had more guts and power than Making Love. Making Love isn't sanctimonious
about its gay characters, but at the same
time, it doesn't allow them many scenes that
are genuinely felt. The triangle in this film is
dealt with such restraint and caution that if
you were to substitute a woman for Zack's
lover, it wouldn't make much difference.
Perhaps writer Barry Sandler's point is
precisely that — it doesn't matter whether
Zack leaves Claire for another man or
woman; what matters is the emotional
change these characters go through. "What I
was trying to do," says Sandler, "was to aim
for naturalism, to capture some elements of
life. Every gay character portrayed (in Making Love) was not a stereotype. Though perhaps over-idealized."
Guarded, tastefully
done and
emotionally vapid
Over-idealized and under-realized
characters are at the root of Making Love's
problems. It's as if the film were trying to
correct every wrong the cinema has ever committed in its portrayal of gays, and in particular, Cruising. Making Love would be a
considerably enriching film if only the
characters weren't so damn archetypal.
Everything about Zack and Claire is set up as
"perfect". Zack and Claire are set up as a
perfect couple so that when the separation
comes, one should realize the irony of the
early scenes.
Even the real-estate agent who tries to sell
Zack and Claire a new house (with a
fireplace!) says, "It's so traditional; it's ideal
for a young married couple." When she expresses drooling sentiments like that, you can
almost see the neon lights bright up with the
word "irony." No one says things like this in
movies anymore because the sentiments set
themselves up for a thorough debunking.
The heavy symbols keep coming. When
Zack and Claire go to his father's family's
house for dinner, there are two empty places
between Zack and Claire at the dinner table
to signify a childless couple (Zack's brother
Frank has two children.) And the conversation at the dinner table centres on Milton and
Virgil, who are now thought to be homesex-
uals. You can almost imagine the thinking
that went behind the writing of the scene:
"See, even a homosexual can be a genius!"
Making Love is an inadequate movie the
way Kramer vs. Kramer was. In Kramer vs.
Kramer, writer-director Robert Benton expected you to accept a couple's breakup five
ONTKEAN, JACKSON. HAMLIN
long-repressed homosexuality disrupts bliss
minutes into the movie, without telling you
how they functioned as a couple for more
than six years. Making Love isn't as bad as
Kramer vs. Kramer, but the exposition is still
lacking; Zack and Claire are a middle-class
couple with prestigious positions (he's a doctor, she's a network executive), and they like
making love by the fireplace.
When the signals keep coming about their
marriage, you have to fill in the gaps
yourself; there must have been something
wrong in their marriage — how could it last
for eight years without signs of the impending breakup? Since nothing is said about
how Zack repressed his feelings, Making
Love is frequently difficult to accept and
frustrating.
Sandler has also constructed direct cinema
narrations for Claire and Zack's lover (Harry
Hamlin), which begin the film and continue
throughout on a random basis (this film
doesn't have a theory of montage). What
does Sandler think such an empty device will
accomplish — that it will help us understand
the characters better? The extreme close-ups
of the character's faces are framed by flashes
of bright, existential white light. If only the
characters' monologues told you something
substantial about themsleves and Zack. They
don't. Not once.
The only character who does not get a narration track is Zack, whose character is left
deliberately ambiguous. Zack is the one person who needs the narrative evaluations so
that we could understand what makes him
function as a person. Zack is pent up with
rage, emotion and confusion — or rather
emotions that resemble rage, confusion —
but he is empty at the centre; there is no way
an audience can grasp his character.
Hiller and Sandler probably think they're
doing something clever by not giving Zack a
narration; it's as if they were saying, Zack
doesn't need to explain himself. That's all
well and good, but if the narrative and the
voice-over commentaries don't explain
crucial things about Zack, what good is the
whole exercise?
The three major characters in Making
Love are all sympathetic figures, and Claire is
more so than others; she is the archetypal
woman who suffers for her man, but ends up
building a new life for herself; she's the New
Woman. In Sandler's own words, "The audience identification is with her." What he is
saying, essentially is that the audiene needs a
non-threatening character like Claire; she is
someone they don't have to try hard to
understand. Claire, in other words, is the audience.
Did Sandler think that if he made her a
more difficult character to accept, he might
be risking the majority (i.e. the heterosexual
members) of the audience? Claire is so bland
and understanding, she's innocuous. The
confrontation scene is the one good scene
Jackson has in the whole movie; it almost
allows her to transcend her character's
weaknesses.
Sandler has even made Claire a giddy little
television executive who fights for "quality
programming." How can you fault such a
character? How can you not like her? Claire
is as close to abstraction as you can get in a
realistic picture. But Claire's arguments for
quality programming are as uninteresting as
her character.
There is even a scene in which Claire
defends the intelligence of the public (Claire
is a former PBS programmer) against a smug
panel, which basically tells her, "You can't
go wrong underestimating the public's intelligence." The words which come out of
Claire's mouth — words which Kate Jackson
says she wrote herself — seem like position
papers out of TV Guide.
Making Love is all about the integration of
gays into society. Hiller's camera steps into
gay bars, but there is nothing in the film that
reveals what it is like for a person to come to
terms with his homosexuality. There is a big
gap near the end about how Zack rebuilds his
life and the experiences he has isolated from
either Claire or Bart. Hiller, Sandler and Ontkean play Zack as somewhat of a loner, but
they don't show how he copes with his
loneliness. How does Zack re-examine his
feelings and notions about relationships?
Damned if Making Love has any answers.
And Sandler has come up with pat answers
about Zack and Bart's homosexuality. Both
characters reveal that they had authoratarian
fathers with whom they could not communicate. The film has simplistic Freu-
dianism to boot.
The characters in Making Love aren't
complex; they just have pretentions of being
uncertain, confused and sometimes ambivalent characters. Michael Ontkean, who
plays Zack, doesn't take us far enough into
his character. Zack is so docile and lost, he'
pathetic. "It wasn't the kind of part that was
enjoyable," says Ontkean about Zack. "For
me, it's just a part. There isn't a lot of me in
there (in Zack). Acting is like getting drunk.
You do things you wouldn't normally do."
ONTKEAN and JACKSON
inevitable marital breakup
Making Love
step in right
direction
Making Love has its share of good
moments, most of them while Harry Hamlin,
as Bart, is on screen. Bart is one character in
whom Sandler has etched some subtlety and
a margin of complexity. Somewhat of a narcissist, Bart supports Zack's decision to come
out of the closet, but then refuses to get involved in a relationship with him. •
Bart isn't particularly likeable, but he is
comprehensible. Hamlin portrays his
character with an understanding and commitment that is usually evident in only the
most seasoned actors. When he guides Zack
through a difficult evening, an evening during which they go to bed for the first time,
you can feel the attraction between the men;
the understated tension, punctuated by small
talk, is just right. It is easily the film's best sequence.
Sandler, to his credit, has devised an in-

By CHARLOTTE OLSEN
Meet Kate, a woman who lives two lives. In
one life she is a typical student, lugging
books, attending lectures, and writing exams.
But in the second life Kate is someone who
functions in a world that 20 years ago would
have been completely alien to most students.
Away from classes, in this other world,
Kate may be a wife and mother, a single
parent, or either. Whether or not Kate has a
spouse and dependents, there is one fact
about her that singles her out from the rest
of the student population.
Kate has voluntarily left the "real" world;
she has given up stability and security and has
returned to university. Kate is a composite of
the growing numbers of female students who
are over the age of 24 and who, after several
years of employment and/or motherhood,
have decided to return to school.
This year at UBC there are 3,934 female
students aged 25 or older. That is 35 per cent
of the total female student population. Of
the total number of students here more than
25 years of age, women comprise 49 per cent.
Twenty years ago fewer than 13 per cent of
mature students were women. Undoubtedly,
they would have attracted attention wherever
they went on campus.
But because of their ever increasing
numbers, these women are not a new
phenomenon. There is nothing that really
sets them apart from students who have come
to university immediately after finishing high
school. Until you examine their other lives.
Why would a person who has a secure life,
who is employed in a reasonably well-paying
job or who has a reasonably satisfying home
life, decide to chuck it all and return to the
poverty-stricken life of a student? An
understandable question, and one asked over
and over by the friends and families of women who decide to go back to school.
The answer given by a large number of.
these women is in many instances the same:
"Suddenly what I had wasn't enough. I needed more, I needed a change." For Liz
Mostovich, arts 3, returning to university was
one way to obtain the qualifications
necessary for a career change. "I worked for
16 years as a secretary," she says. "Now I
want a new career."
Cathy Lowrey, science 1, was a lab technician for 12 years. "It was time for a change,
now I'm aiming for a career in computer
science," she says. Karen Harvey, arts 1, did
clerical work for 11 years. She too wanted a
change and is now planning on entering
social work.
Some women feel the need for change and
self-advancement, and there are also women
students such as Doreen Morden, political
science 4, who returned to school after 38
years "to do what I had never been able to do
before."
Just as their reasons for attending university differ from those of other students, returning women students' scholastic lives contain
elements that, if not unique, are more pronounced than those of younger students.
One is exam anxiety. Every student ex-

prevalent among
mature students
periences stress during exams and sooner or
later comes to accept it as a fact of life. But
for a student who has been away from a
scholastic environment for some time, the
anxiety increases.
June Lythgoe,director of UBC's women
students' office says exam anxiety is more
prevalent among mature students than in the
general student body.
"The problem," she says, "is that a returning student has not written exams for quite
some time. The standards of achievement
may have changed, the student does not
know what is expected, and may have lost
confidence in her ability to attain the standard required. Not knowing what is expected
makes the student feel that she is not standing on solid ground.
"Or there is the frustration which results if
the student cannot attain the same level of

performance she had attained when last in
school," Lythgoe says. "For the most part,
returning women students are highly
motivated and are over-achievers."
Until Christmas exams of her first year are
over, the returning woman student will often
feel uncertain and will have a difficult time
judging her performance. But Lythgoe says
that after the Christmas exams, the student
usually finds things easier and less stressful.
At that time the mature student has concrete
marks which aid her in determining which
areas need more attention.
Another very large part of a returning student's life is the need to balance multiple
roles. After class this woman must be someone else. She cannot focus all of her attention on her courses: she suddenly has to
manage a house, mother children, handle a
part-time job, and generally interact with
people who may have no conception of what
her other life is really like.
"The returning student is living at least
two lives," says Lythgoe, "and that can be a
threat to her identity. The woman begins to
ask 'which person am I?' She must be able to
move quickly between her identities and
balancing these different roles is very important."
In order to successfully balance her two
lives, the student needs a great deal of support from her family and friends. For most
of the women interviewed, this support is
usually available. Lowrey says that she has
not encountered any negative attitudes
among the people in her social circle.
For Harvey, friends were very
supportive."Surprisingly," she says, "I encountered the least support among the people
with whom I worked, and I had thought that
they would have been the most encouraging."
Fran Jessop (not her real name) says that
she feels she has a split personality. "I attend
classes and then I go home and try to be a
good wife and mother. But it is easing up.
My husband is very supportive."
Mostovich says her family was generally
supportive when she decided to return to
school. "Many of my friends, however,
reacted with surprise. They didn't seem to
understand and wanted to know why I would
upset my life."
Mostovich's in-laws were not as supportive
as her own parents. But things are gradually
changing. "My father-in-law gave me a pen
and pencil set for Christmas. I think it's his
way of saying that he has accepted my decision!"
As well as experiencing stress during exams
and the pressures of trying to juggle two
lives, the returning student may feel isolated
on campus. Even though the woman fits in
perfectly in class, she may not be able to meet
people with whom she can socialize. For
Harvey, the problem is that she is a single
parent living in a complex which houses married couples. "I just don't meet women who
are in my situation. I feel isolated from the
rest of the people in the complex."
The returning student
may feel isolated
on campus
Another student, who chose not to give her
name, says that both she and her husband are
students at UBC. "Our problem is that we
don't meet people as couples. We are left in
the position of staring at each other all
weekend. I wish there was someplace on campus where all returning students could
meet."
Well, there is, or at least there was. At the
beginning of this year an attempt was made
to organize a returning students' club. A
room was reserved in SUB and returning
students were asked to drop in every week to
meet others. The response has been un-
dramatic and the weekly drop-ins have attracted fewer and fewer students.
One of the reasons for this may be that
returning students suffer from lack of
available time. There are simply not enough
hours in the day to handle both the student
life and the outside life. Especially during
February.
"February is an awful month," says
Mostovich. "It seems that everything is piling
up — there is an overload of work and you
can see the end of the year in sight, so the
pressure is increased."
Time to join clubs or attend their functions
seems desperately short when the reality of
It may be the system
is not as intimidating
to an older student
final exams looms up in front of you.
An impression gained from examining the
anxieties felt by a returning female student
may be that she has the cards stacked against
her. But that is not the case.
"An older student who has functioned in a
non-scholastic environment can relate her
experiences to her studies," says Lythgoe.
"The material has relevance and she probably achieves a deeper comprehension of the
subject matter."
Mostovich echoes these sentiments. "It
may be that we are a bit more aware, that we
have more experiences to draw upon when
we need to analyze a subjective question.
And then again, it may be that the system is
not as intimidating to an older student."
Whatever the reason, returning women
students usually succeed in their courses.
Lythgoe says that most of the women are surprised at how good their marks in their
courses are.
If one looks at the background and
motives of returning women students, one
can see many reasons for their success. First,
she has made a conscious decision to return
to school. It is not something she does simply
because it's the next step after high school, or
because her family expects it. She has usually
weighed the benefits she hopes to attain
against the cost of making such a change.
Therefore, she is committed to achieving a
new goal. This provides the motivation to
keep going in spite of all the difficulties. And
motivation is a very important part of any
student's chances for success.
This new life is also exciting and for the
most part, enjoyable. Students entering
university immediately after high school may
view their time at university as one spent
waiting to be released from prison. But for
the returning student it is an escape. Suddenly, she is freed from the bonds of her
previous life.
Lastly, there is the need to succeed. Lurking in the back of her mind may be the
thought that there are hundreds of people
"out there in the real world" just waiting for
her to fall flat on her face. As Kate says, "It's
like quitting smoking, you have to tell the
world you are going to succeed. You'll never
live it down if you don't! And that is motivation. "
Perhaps these jugglers, these women who
manage to live two lives, do strongly feel the
effects of coming back to school cold turkey.
Perhaps not. Their personalities and motivations are as diverse as are those of the rest of
the student body.
Despite their diversity, they have this in
common: every one of them would make the
same decision if they had to do it over again.
But maybe sooner. "It's opened up a whole
new world for me," says Harvey, "here you
can do what you can't do in a clerical job —
you can learn incredibly fascinating things." Friday, February 12,1982

Now that vou re at university
What are you
doing here?
By MARK LEIREN-YOUNG
"Our students go to university because:
number one, their parents want them to go;
number two, I think most of them see it as
the key to advancement socially. A lot of our
kids see a degree as a status symbol and I
know mothers and fathers think it's really
great to say their kid is at UBC. I've never
really heard any kid here say they were going
to gain more knowledge. " — Claire Cummings, counselling department head, Eric
Hamber Secondary School.
"I want to go to university because I want
to get a degree and it's easier to get a job. "
— an Eric Hamber grade eight student.
Are your parents encouraging you?
"Well yes, but it's all been planned out.
Our parents knew we were going to go to
university before we were born. "
What are you doing here?
The portrait of a university student that
Vancouver high school counsellors draw is
someone with professional parents who encourage their child to go; university-bound
peers; and a desire to "be somebody." And
if the student is from Vancouver she is
typically from west of Main street.
Which side of Main street a school is on
determines the percentage of university
bound students according to recent Vancouver school board statistics.
The lowest percentage of students any
west-side school sends to university is 26 per
cent (Point Grey) while the highest from any
east-side school is only 22 per cent
(Killarney). Kitsilano, a west-side school with
a lower percentage of students sent to university, is considered an anomaly because of the
areas varying income levels.
Bob Lewis, head of David Thompson's
counselling department says it is the students'
background that determines whether or not
they go to university. Thompson sends a
lower percentage of its students to university
than any other Vancouver public secondary
school.
"This is a working class area and there are
an enormous number of new Canadian
families so more of our students go to community colleges and technical schools."
And, according to Lewis, the reason has a
lot to do with the student's self image. "The
kids from the west side come from
backgrounds that are professional and they
are encouraged a lot more at home to get into
professional fields. The kids here are not as
confident even though they've got the same
amount of talent academically," says Lewis.
East side students often set their goals too
low say Lewis and a number of other
counsellors. Lewis and the other six
counsellors interviewed agree that role
models are a major factor but economic
background does not inhibit first year entrance. He says the goals are often set as early
as elementary school.
Lewis says it is often difficult to convince
Thompson students they are capable of going
on to university.
Cummings said she encounters the opposite problem. Cummings is head of Eric
Hamber's counselling department, a west-
side school located on the outskirts of
Shaughnessy, which consistently sends the
largest number of students to university even
though it is smaller than a number of east-
side schools.
"Our biggest problem as counsellors here
is getting parents to be realistic about their
kids. About two thirds of our students are
cross-boundary (from outside the school
district) and people figure that if they send
their kids here it's a ticket to university," she
says.
"Quite a few students who come here have
no business going to university but if you suggest to mother or father that perhaps they
should think of doing something else —
wow."
Cummings said the pressure to go to
university is so strong students often become
more concerned with grades than with learning. "Some kids get really frustrated when
there's discussion, they just want answers to
tests. Some cheating is also involved," she
adds.
"Students at this particular school go
because of peer pressure. It seems to be the
thing to do here. The students who have gone
to work certainly feel that they are not with
the 'in-group' at Hamber," Cummings says.
She says 100 per cent of her grade eight
girls are contemplating going to university.
But Lewis says only 65 per cent of his grade
eights are considering university as an option.
The west-side/east-side inequality
however, does not hold up as strongly in
grades. University Hill sent 34 of their 66
1980 grads to UBC for the 80/81 year.
Thompson sent only 32 of 332. But UHill
had a 20 per cent failure, withdrawal rate,
more than double the failure withdrawal rate
of Thompson (9 per cent). In fact, only 37
per cent of the UHill students enrolled completed a full course load. More than half (53
per cent) of the Thompson students com
pleted full course loads.
Al Gilpin, Vancouver Technical School's
counselling department head, said only about
half the grade eights at theat east-side school
are considering university.
"One of the tougher things we have here is
to try to convince some of our brighter
students to go to university," Gilpin says.
Since their parents don't have a post secondary education the students don't see it as a
necessity, he says.
"At Hamber and Magee those kids have
probably got a mother or father who have
some or all of a university education and consequently it is almost an accepted fact, like
having four walls to a room, that you would
go on. In some cases here it's almost the opposite pressure.
"The other thing is peer group pressure.
When you go to a school where the majority
of grade twelves are talking about going on to
further education you're tempted to jump on
GRADS-TO-BE . . . looking brightly to future at, . . UBC
•ric .ggartson photos
the bandwagon," he says. "We don't have a
bandwagon effect on this side of town."
Gilpin said finances are not directly
responsible for limiting first year enrolment
from Van Tech but adds that "most of our
students work and they can make money
easier by working than they can prepping for
scholarships."
Gene Halsey, John Oliver high school's
counselling department head, agrees that
work ethic is an important factor.
"The kids here are very work oriented.
They want to see a quick return on their
training. Many kids here work part time, they
need a lifestyle. The junior kids can hardly
wait to get a job. These are the knock-on-
door kids, even the big kids have paper
routes.
"They could probably enjoy some of the
drama, some of the music, some of the
sports, but they've got to buy that car,"
Halsey says.
Even when Halsey's students do choose to
go to university it must guarantee employment. "There's no concept that education is
leading forth and flowering an individual."
He recounts the story of phoning a student's father to inform him that his child had
skipped a class. The parent wanted to know
what the class was, Halsey said it was an 'art'
class. The father said it wasn't important
although Halsey countered that the world
needs artists. The father's response was:
"Lots of hungry artists around."
Cummings says there is a certain negative
attitude developing at her school towards an
arts degree. "A lot of our students see an arts
degree as being rather fluffy and frivilous."
She says this attitude could be partially attributed to parental values.
Linda Giza, a University Hill counsellor,
doesn't feel her students are pressured to go
to university but says parental role models
can be an influence. She adds that the
school's proximity to UBC makes it more accesible. "They (UHill students) are not afraid
of UBC the way students from small towns
are."
Giza says some UHill students who go to
university would benefit more from a two
year career program but all a counsellor can
do in such a case is to suggest alternatives.
"You can make suggestions, but if people
still want to go to university they have the
right to go there and do badly if they want,
for,whatever reason." Page 8

Breaking all rules,
Wallenberg knew the
odds, succeeded,
and was forgotten
By CHRIS WONG
A day of considerable importance to Jews around the world
passed in January. It was not the
observance of a sacred festival or
the commemoration of a great
Jewish martyr: it was the thirty-
seventh anniversary of the disappearance of a Swedish diplomat.
This man to whom world-wide
concern and respect have been
directed, is Raoul Wallenberg. Near
the end of the Second World War
Wallenberg was responsible for saving the lives of almost 100,000
Hungarian Jews. In 1945, after the
Russians occupied Hungary, he was
arrested under still unclear circumstances.
Rabbi Abraham Cooper, of the
Simon Wisenthal Centre in Los
Angeles, spoke in Vancouver on the
Wallenberg case on Feb. 2 and 3.
Cooper told 150 people at the Beth
Israel synagogue, and 25 people at
UBC's Hillel House about the little
known Swede.
"Raoul Wallenberg was a person
who understood all the odds against
him, the mentality of his enemies,
and the rules of diplomacy," said
Cooper. "He went ahead and broke
every one of those rules. We owe
him a lot."
Wallenberg was a member of a
prominent Swedish family often
referred to as the "rockefellers of
Sweden." While working in Haifa,
Berger pleads tolerance
By KURT PREINSPERGER
In a largely unfree world, we
should be proud of the freedoms we
enjoy in Canada — proud, but not
complacent. Throughout Canadian
history, there have been episodes of
persecution on racial, political and
religious grounds. Fragile Freedoms
by Thomas R. Berger chronicles
eight such episodes.
Fragile Freedoms
By Thomas Berger
Clarke, Irwin and Company Ltd.
300 pages, $17.95
Berger, the youngest B.C.
Supreme Court judge, has
distinguished himself as commissioner of the Mackenzie Valley
pipeline inquiry and by his 1977
report, Northern Frontier, Northern Homeland, which pleaded for
native rights and environmental
protection. With equally lucid and
thoughtful arguments, Fragile
Freedoms pleads for minority rights
in general and for a "regime of
tolerance" in Canada.
Starting with examples of past intolerance and injustice — against
the Acadians, the Metis, the
Japanese Canadians, the Communists, the Jehovah's Witnesses,
the Nischga Indians and other
groups — Berger proceeds to explore many timeless problems regarding the limits of tolerance: must
we go so far as to concede free
speech to those who would deny us
that freedom, if they could? Must
we respect a right to propagate
blatantly false beliefs? What about
fascist and racist propaganda?
What about people who urge the
overthrow of the government?
Berger's conclusion: "Without
the right to propagate error, there
:annot be true freedom of speech,
no real exchange of ideas."
"In any free society there is a
proliferation of groups, espousing
any numbre of causes, which
challenge the assumptions by which
we live. Their rhetoric is often
fierce, though this usually indicates
a sense of frustration as much as
revolutionary  intention   . . .   But
call to others to overthrow our institutions by force (and the laws
against treason and sedition are
adequate to cope with this possibility), a free and democratic nation
should not attempt to restrain dissent."
Without evasion Berger confronts the question whether the law
should prevent certain racist groups
from speaking: "There is today a
liberal establishment ready to speak
out in support of the rights of
Asians in Vancouver or West Indians in Toronto or Moroccans in
Montreal. . . But legislation banning racist propaganda, such as the
federal legislation of 1969 banning
hate propaganda, entails the enactment of curbs on freedom of.
speech, something not to be undertaken except for the most compelling reasons and, in the case of racial
intolerance, with an awareness that
legislation may not be the answer to
every evil in the state."
Canada's greatest
contribution to
the world is
its pluralistic
L
society
J
People are often unjustly labelled
racist, just for expressing fear that
Canada's racial and cultural mosaic
will promote social strife in the
future.
Will a multicultural Canada endure? Berger, a committed believer
in strength through diversity, thinks
our chances are good and the
rewards will be great. He says
Canada's greatest contribution to
the world is not our export of
resources, but our example of a
pluralistic   society   which   really
.."•.-..•ki..      **Tf     nortnlo     o.f     Hiff/*rina
races, religions, cultures and
languages can live together harmoniously within a great federal
state, perhaps they may learn to live
together harmoniously in the wider
world. A strong nation will nurture
diversity; a strong nation can abide
dissent."
His reasoning, never preaching,
prompts the reader to try and
understand minorities who look or
behave differently, to accomodate
non-violent forms of dissent and to
cultivate lasting respect for human
rights and fundamental freedoms.
If there is fault with Berger's admirable book, it is its neglect to
discuss the hard compromises
which even a "regime of tolerance"
will have to make when faced with
conflicting demands on its generosity. Some ethnic minorities, for example, press for liberal immigration
policies, which account for nearly
50 per cent of Canada's population
increase of half a million people annually. Berger describes in detail
how frequently our expanding
society steamrollered the rights of
Canada's original occupants; but he
does not make clear how we can
satisfy the claim of native Indians to
large tracts of land to pursue their
own lifestyle, if on the other hand
we act as if Canada were still an
empty land free for the taking.
But this book is enlightening in so
many ways, filled with clear-sighted
defenses of tolerance and the need
for a charter of rights and freedoms
in our new constitution, that one
could well wish to make it required
reading for Canadians.
Speaking of great historic injustice, the book does not want to
provoke guilt, but encourages us to
learn from history—and to love
Canada more dearly with critical
vigilance. Regrettably, those people
who have the most to learn are least
likely to read it and will remain narrow-minded, calling for repression
every time they disagree with a
viewpoint or lifestyle. It becomes all
the more essential for the rest of us
to insist with Berger on the right of
individuals to think as they will, to
believe what they choose and to
snpalr their minds without fear.
RABBI COOPER . . . "we owe Wallenberg a lot"
Palestine, he learned from Jewish
refugees of the atrocities the Nazis
were committing. In the summer of
1944, he arrived in Budapest to embark on a mission to save the
thousands of Jews living there,
Cooper said.
He was granted diplomatic status
from the Swedish foreign office.
Once in Budapest he issued Jews
protective Swedish passes known as
'shutz-passes' and organized 'safe
houses' to aid the Jews. His efforts
met with great success as the Nazi
war effort ground to a halt.
As the situation grew worse in
Budapest, the Nazi soldiers tried to
fulfill Hitler's "final solution." A
sealed ghetto filled with Jews was to
be blown up, any survivors would
be machine-gunned. Wallenberg
stopped the demolition of the ghetto by threatening to have Adolf
Eichmann hanged as a war criminal
after the war. Seventy thousand
Jews were saved by that one act,
Cooper said.
After Wallenberg's arrest and
disappearance in 1945, the Soviets
offered several conflicting explanations for his whereabouts. For
twelve years, the Kremlin claimed
Wallenberg had been killed by the
German troops remaining in
Budapest.
Their story drastically changed in
1957, when Soviet foreign minister
Andrei Gromyko told the Swedish
government a prisoner known as
"Wallenberg" had died of a heart
attack in 1947 at Lubyanka prison.
Rabbi Cooper's answer to
Gromyko's statement was resoundingly clear: "That assertion is an
absolute, outright, proven lie. The
real tragedy is that the world was
too willing to believe that lie," he
added.
Cooper's reasons for doubt are
based on the accounts of witnesses
who saw Wallenberg alive as late as
1975. One such witness was Jan
Kaplan, a Soviet Jew, who
telephoned his daughter after his
release from Butyrka prison in 1977
and told her of a Swede he had met
named Wallenberg. Shortly after
his release Kaplan was arrested
again and remains today in a Soviet
prison, Cooper said.
There are several theories to explain why the Soviets held
Wallenberg. Cooper said it may
have been because of the nature of
his mission. "Who was going to
believe his alibi that he actually
came to save Jews?"
Another guess could have been
that the Russians had linked him
with U.S. espionage agents and arrested him as a spy, Cooper said.
But whatever the reasons for his arrest, the fact remains that the
Wallenberg case is by no means
dead.
Cooner was extremelv critical of
the Swedish government for their
effort on the case. "The Swedish
authorities did not push the Soviets
the way they needed to be pushed to
release the most important Swedish
diplomat ever."
"The recent fiasco with the
Soviet submarine in Swedish
waters, proves that the Swedes are
incapable of dealing with the
Soviets on the Wallenberg case," he
said. "The Wallenberg case will go
down as a black mark in Swedish
history."
But Cooper expressed hope the
Soviets will change their position on
the case. "Even the Soviets can be
persuaded," he said. "If somebody
becomes enough of a liability, they
will deal with the issue."
Cooper has not been alone in expressing hope for Wallenberg's
case. The international Raoul
Wallenberg committee met in
January of 1981 in Stockholm to
hold hearings on the case. After
listening to testimony of former
Soviet prisoners, the committee
concluded that Wallenberg was still
alive.
£
he tragedy
is that the
world was
too willing to
believe lies
^ • J
Wallenberg was declared an
honorary American citizen by
President Reagan last year. The only other foreigner to have received
this honor was Winston Churchill.
As Rabbi Cooper was winding up
his speaking engagement at Hillel
House, Susan Rising-Moore, a
UBC secretary, approached him.
She was noticeably excited and
overcome with emotion.
After hearing Cooper's talk on
Wallenberg, she telephoned her
parents who were Holocaust survivors and discovered that her
mother had been given the protective passes Wallenberg had issued,
and that she had stayed in one of
Wallenberg's 'safe-houses'.
"If it hadn't been for
Wallenberg, I wouldn't be here,"
she said. People like Susan Rising-
Moore, proof of Wallenberg's efforts, may not be proof enough to
change the Soviets' position, but
they may be enough to spark some
outcry from a world which seems to
have foraotten Raoul Wallenberg. Friday, February 12,1982

Refugees report Salvadoran atrocities
By ROB CLEMENT for
Canadian University Press
Sandra Pentland, director of
Montreal YMCA's International Programs has travelled to
Honduras four times in the last ten
months. She was a member of the
first in a series of four teams sent to
monitor a massive relocation program to move refugees from El
Salvador's revolutionary war further into Honduran land, away
from the persecution of government troops. Military harassment
of the refugees led to the creation
of the Observer Teams Pentland
worked with. She talked with The
Link, at Concordia University in
Montreal.
How do you view the current situation
for the refugees?
The situation in Honduras for the
refugee is extremely difficult right now and
they are very aware of the importance of international observers, and the deterant that
is to repression against the refugees. We
were welcomed very, very warmly by both
the Salvadorean and Hondurans in the
border area.
Which area is the most important in
terms of the current situation?
The border area between Honduras and
El Salvador. The three border provinces of
El Salvador: Chalactenango, Cabanas and
Morazan are strongholds of the Farabundo
Marti Para La Liberacione Nacional,
(Farabundo Marti National Liberation
Front — FMLN}. It is very difficult to attack those areas from El Salvador, except
by air. The Honduran border area is a
perfect staging area for attacks against
those three provinces. This was shown on
July 17 when 1,200 Salvadorean troops
landed in Honduras and for nine days,
from Honduras, they conducted military
action against the FMLN.
How did the Honduran government react
to the presence of foreign troops on its territory?
Because there was so much international
pressure, Honduras was forced to issue a
very weak protest about the violation of
their sovereign territory. But the Honduran
troops just stood by and watched while all
this was going on. There was no resistance
whatsoever. It was very clear from the way
the Hondurans behaved that the whole
thing was pre-arranged.  You  often  see
meetings. The Salvadoran National Guard
will often come into places like La Virtud
(Honduras) and meet with the Military
Commander.
Why is there so much attention focused
on the border at this time?
Because of the way the war is going in El
Salvador itself, it is becoming increasingly
important to have that border area as a
militarized zone. If they have a military
zone there, if the refugees are all moved and
if all the international organizations that
work with the refugees are all moved, then
there are no witnesses and it is much easier
for the Honduran military to collaborate
without the bad international press they get
when there are international witnesses who
denounce it. This way Honduras could
maintain its international image as a
moderate democratic country at the same
time as they are overtly collaborating with
the Salvadorian military.
The matter of the security of the refugees
has been raised by the government. Would
you care to comment?
Honduras wants to relocate all the
refugees 50 kilometers within the border for
their own "security". From all the evidence
that we've gathered, and the delegation of
Canadian MPs that has just returned, we
are all in agreement that when you look at
the question of security you have to consider a lot more than just the chances that
somebody might get a bullet in the head.
You have to look at living conditions, at
people's ability to provide for themselves
and their mental health as well.
How do refugees fare in Honduras?
Most of the refugees don't live in camps
now. They live with Honduran families in
small hamlets. They live the kind of life that
they've lived for many years. They are integrated economically and socially into
these areas.
You have had many opportunities to talk
with the refugees. What have they told you?
The stories that everybody has to tell you
about their lives . . . The members of their
families who have been mutilated, tortured
and killed in front of them; women who's
husbands have been killed in front of them;
children shot and mutilated. You can see
that where they are in the small camps and
villages that they are not just functioning.
You see a tremendous spirit, a conviction
that this is not going to last forever, that
their people are going to win and they will
be able to go home.
What is happening to the refugees as they
are being relocated?
Now these people are being completely
uprooted and thrown into this new situation. All that they are allowed to take with
them is what they carry in their hands. They
have to leave everything else behind and
start all over again in a completely different
social structure.
How are the military involved in harassment during the relocation?
In the middle of November there was a
series of acts of repression and intimidation
against the refugees which we believed were
linked to the whole relocation program. It
is just at that point that people were being
forced to move to the new camp at Masa
Grande. The dates coincide almost exactly
and you have incidents either on the part of
the Honduran military or the Salvadorean.
Every place when it is time for the people to
move there seems to be an appearance of
the military in some kind of intimidation or
repression. It is an attempt to say to the
people, either you move or there is going to
be a lot more trouble, because they want
them out of that border area.
Could you give me an example of this
"repression and intimidation?"
On Nov. 16, Salvadorean National
Guardsmen and a number of paramilitary
entered the camp at La Virtud, Honduras
and tried to leave with 32 refugees. Because
of the intervention of several international
observers who were there, among them Bianca Jagger, the people were freed.
What exactly happened? '
They were in the village and someone
came running up and said, 'they're taking
the refugees' Bianca Jagger and the people
who were with her jumped into a jeep and
went roaring off. They caught up with them
and got out and Bianca started yelling and
screaming in Spanish. One of the guys from
Oxfam, Rusty Davenport started taking
pictures like crazy and the other two guys
started wrestling with the military trying to
pull the refugees out of their hands. By that
time about 3,000 people had come out of
the camp and encircled the military. The
National Guardsmen tried to go after the
photographer and get his film but he just
troops from El Salvador frequently raid refugee camps
kept passing it back into the refugees. He
said to them, remember what happened
when the photographer was in Nicaragua,
all the trouble that caused? Finally the
soldiers didn't know what to do so they just
left without the 32 refugees.
Getting back to the security question,
how do the refugees feel about the Honduran soldiers?
In terms of security the refugees are very
much afraid of the Honduran military and
for good reason. They've seen the Honduran military killing their people.
What is the relocation camp like?
At Masa Grande they are going to be put
into what is essentially a concentration
camp. They can't leave, are very isolated
and are under the control of the Honduran
military. The plan is to put 15,000 people
into the camp at Masa Grande where they
are just living in tents, row upon row upon
row. There is no work for them. There is
nothing for them to do. There are already
cases of latent depression. They've been going for periods of up to 48 hours without
drinking water. There is not enough food,
blankets and clothes. The area is much colder than what they are accustomed to.
How do the refugees feel about the
move?
The people themselves do not want to
move. They know what it is going to be like
to start all over again under those conditions. They also know that if they leave the
border area the border will be closed and no
new refugees are going to be able to cross.
How is that?
Once that becomes a military zone and
the military actions against the FMLN are
stepped up there will be more of a need for
people to get out but they won't be able to
cross. It is bad enough right now.
Just how bad is it? Could you give me an
example?
When I was there in November a group
of 25 people came. They had started out
with a group of 200 and only 25 made it.
There was a group of 60 that got split off
from the original group. We don't know
what happened to the original group. The
group of 60 were chased day and night by
helicopters and strafed from the air. Finally
one night they were lured into a field by the
paramilitary who told them that they were
compagnaros who were going to help them.
When they got to the field the paramilitary
just opened fire on them. Of the group of
60, 35 people were killed. A lot of them
were kids. Of those who did make it many
were badly wounded. It is hard enough for
refugees to get out now. Imagine what will
happen when there is no international
presence in the border area. The only way
we feel you can guarantee a real international presence is by having significant
numbers of refugees themselves there otherwise there will only be three or four people
from the United Nations High Commis-
| sion.
What will happen to the Hondurans living in the border area if all the refugees are
relocated?
This situation is really important.
Thousands of Honduran families have
opened up their homes. For a year to a year
and a half they have been living with the
Salvadorians on their land. The Honduran
military have made it very clear that they
consider anybody who assists the refugees
to be a communist. They are also very clear
as to what fate they feel the communists
deserve. They've already killed two Honduran peasants who had taken refugees on
their land and who through Caritas were
distributing food to the refugees. One was
killed by the Honduran military in
November and the other was killed by the
Salvadorean military in December. They
were not politically involved. They were
just helping. The military have told the
Hondurans, "just wait until all the international people are gone. You're going to pay
the price for what you've done."
Overall how do you view the relocation?
Looking at the whole situation in the
border area we feel that there is no way that
the relocation project can be judged as
positive from anybody's point of view except the military's. It is important to keep
trying to stop the re-settlement. Even if it is
not possible to stop it there will be many
positive effects from an attempt to stop it. Page 10

Building dedication to jazz ballet
Genevieve Salbaing is artistic
director and co-founder of the
Montreal-based dance company,
Les Ballets Jazz. Her company is
unique because it has succeeded
where most attempts to build jazz
dance companies in North America
have failed.
But this year Ballets Jazz enters
its second decade as one of
Canada's most successful touring
companies thanks in great part to
Salbaing's efforts. Salbaing was
recently in Vancouver promoting
her company's performances Feb.
20 to 22 at the Queen Elizabeth
Theatre and talked with Ubyssey
staffer, Lawrence Panych.
How would you define your goals
with regards to your company, Les
Ballets Jazz?
I'm trying to build a company
that's dedicated to jazz music. I
think jazz is the big happening of
the twentieth century. ... I believe
in jazz music. It's a beautiful form
of art.
What is jazz dance?
Jazz dance includes many forms,
ballet and modern. I don't limit my
dance to a certain movement. It's
inspired by music which is extremely
varied so it must be varied as well.
The vocabulary of classical
music is very academic. There are
certain positions. One doesn't leave
the mold. There is a set manner to
stabilize the body with a center, one
doesn't move the shoulders, there
are no contractions. This not the
case with jazz.
It's always difficult to explain dance in words. It's practically impossible. When you ask what is
the difference in the vocabularies of
Bejart and Ballanchine it takes
thousands of words to explain but
when you see them on stage you'll
see the difference immediately.
The connection between improvisation and jazz music is ob-
SALBAING . . . and company, Les Ballets Jazz
vious. Is there a role for improvisation in jazz dance?
We do a lot of improvisation. We
spent a week in Quebec last summer
for the festival and they asked us to
dance in the street so we went there
with Michel Seguin who is a
wonderful percussionist and first
we started to do ballet that had been
set but as we went on we began improvising. People loved it so much
that even I myself started dancing,
it was so much fun.
Every ballet we do is set but there
is so much counteraction in the jazz
music from the musicians improvis
ing that this also gets into the
dancer's body. You will see the
same steps but not done in exactly
the same way.
How did you get involved in jazz
dance?
I started as a ballet dancer and
became a chereographer after I
finished dancing. I was involved in
many different things; I did ballet
for Les Grands Ballets Canadiens
and for television. Then I was asked
to do some revues and I found that
with my ballet background
something was missing. My
vocabulary wasn't fit for this sort of
thing but I injoyed doing it. So I
decided to get into jazz dancing.
Later I met Eva von Gencsy and
after a few years we founded Les
Ballets Jazz.
You have been accused of being
too light in the works you present.
Is it your goal to only present light
entertainment?
If it's light entertainment it's
maybe because people accept it easily and don't have to think too much
about what I want to say. To me it's
serious entertainment, serious art.
Something is not 'light' as in having no brains just because it's easily
understood. I don't think you have
to be 'heavy' to be interesting. It's
easy to give something that no one
understands. Most who do that
don't understand themselves what
they're looking for.
What I do is very important. I
don't care if I'm condemned for being too easy or too popular. The
thing that's the most difficult is to
attract the public to see what we do,
so there must be something that is
solid. The public knows very well if
we bring something interesting or
not.
How important is what the public
wants to your consideration of what
to present?
It's very important to consider
the public because it's not just the
enjoyment of dancing for yourself.
You have to present it, to share it
and to have it accepted. It's important how the public reacts and if
they love you they will reward you.
Is there a danger of being too sensitive to the public's demands?
I never do something just because
I think the public wants it. I do it
because at a certain time I feel that I
need a certain piece in the repetory
and it happens to have music I like.
When I add something, I add
something to my own taste.
You are a Quebec company but
you tour very extensively internationally. How do you serve you're
constituency, the Quebec people?
I've brought a new form of dance
that wasn't well known. I started a
trend in Montreal. We had one little
school and now, there are four. I
have produced many dances which
are now in the repetory of other
companies. I have certainly done
something for Quebec. Jazz ballet is
now known throughout Quebec
because of our schools and our
company. Quebec culture has gained something through Les Ballets
Jazz.
Fonda's latest
unmitigated
dull disaster
By SHAFFIN SHARIFF
Rollover is an offensive, simple-
minded film. Considering the
talents of actress Jane Fonda and
director Alan Pakula (we'll forget
about Kris Kristofferson), you'd
think together they'd be able
to come up with a decent end-of-
the-monetary-system-as-we-know-it
movie. After all, they worked successfully in Klute, and Pakula can
handle political machinations as
well as any other director, as he
showed in The Parallax View,
perhaps his best film to date.
Rollover
Directed by Alan Pakula
Playing at Capitol Six
Playing an ex-actress married to a
wealthy executive who dies under
mysterious circumstances, Fonda
hops around executive suites with a
smugness that is frustrating; she's
boring. She is a confused character
that seems to need a man to help her
on the way to the top (doesn't every
woman?).
Rollover is Fonda's second
disaster in 12 months; the first was
an equally simple-minded film
about sexism in the corporate
towers of America, Nine to Five.
Here, in Rollover, Fonda is content
with playing the strong silent type
with the sullen, stolid Kristoffer
son. Putting the two together on the
screen is like having mirror reflections of rocks on a mountain;
neither actor is capable of suggesting any genuine warmth or passion.
Although Rollover doesn't give
any credit to Paul Erdman's Crash
of '79, it is a blatant ripoff of the
novel, which at least tried to inject
some pulp into a strained plot. But
Rollover isn't even enjoyable as
trash. It has no idea of who the antagonists are; "they" are merely
unidentified middle eastern powers
refusing to renew cash deposits in
US banks (i.e., no rollover of
funds).
Rollover might appease those
who believe the world monetary
systems are headed for a collapse,
but even that scenario is ridiculously executed. Rollover shows the collapse, but Pakula would have you
believe that recent news footage of
riots in various parts of the world
could be used as substitutes to indicate global economic disorder.
What kind of fools is he aiming
for? Fonda's smug expressions
don't help either; it's as if the actress, convinced of her own
greatness, decided that she could afford to do films like Rollover and
Nine to Five, which are slickly
packaged but empty at the centre.
Ferida' indulu rollover.' And' play'
dead.
FONDA . . . and Kristofferson, not even enjoyable trash
Montenegro, yawn, ifs conventional
By SHAFFIN SHARIFF
Made in 1970, WR: Mysteries of
the Organism still stands up today
as an anarchic, Marxist document.
Director Dusan Makavejev
assaulted film content as well as
form to make disjointed political
statements. Like Godard, he insulted the audience's sensibility; it
was impressive. And it still is.
Montenegro
Starring Susan Anspach
Directed by Dusan Makavejev
Playing at the Bay
Montenegro, Makavejev's first
film in 10 years, looks and feels
tame and conventional when compared-with.-WR. Coming from
Makavejev,  Montenegro is  unex
pectedly restrained, and it is disappointing. Where has the fire and the
power gone? Where are the contentious polemics?
The story concerns Marylin
(Susan Anspach) who, separated
from husband Martin (Erland
Josephson), ends up in a fantasy
world called Zanzi Bar, has an affair with Montenegro, and ends up
killing her lover and family ("the
fruit was poisoned"). Whatever
eroticism exists in Montenegro is
tempered with surreal, humorous
scenes. The weekend excursion into
Zanzi Bar is a liberating experience
for Marylin, and her repressed fantasies keep pouring out. She does
everything she has wanted to, and
then takes a revenge on everyone;
first on Montenegro, her lover, and
then on her family.
Clad in her fur coats and deceivingly sweet smiles, Marylin is
representative of bourgeoise overindulgence in everything — including
fantasy. The absurdity of the situation is funny, but there are far too
many loose ends. Montenegro
falters when you realize what
Makavejev is capable of and has
done in the past — namely WR.
As the American wife of a
Swedish businessman, Anspach is
nothing short of first-rate, and the
film is more her triumph than it is
Makavejev's. It is just too bad that
Makavejev, returning to the screen
after a self-imposed sabatical, did
not go crazy with his narrative. Just
one more look at WR would1 have'
done it. Friday, February 12, 1982

Great Guitars
still cool jazz
By ALLEN STEVENS
Vancouver concertgoers last Sunday had the rare opportunity to
hear two of the finest jazz guitar
players in North America. Almost
500 jazz buffs jammed the Queen
Elizabeth Playhouse to hear
guitarists Charlie Byrd and Barney
Kessel combine their talents and
produce a well-orchestrated evening
of swinging jazz.
Byrd, Kessel, and guitarist Herb
Ellis have been performing together
as The Great Guitars since 1974.
Ellis, hospitalized at the last minute
in Los Angeles, was unable to make
the Vancouver performance, but his
absence didn't seem to bother the
audience or the performers.
Backed by bassist Joe Byrd and
drummer Chuck Redd, Byrd and
Kessel smoothly wove their way
through a variety of jazz pieces
ranging from sambas to hard bop.
In addition to their performances
with the quartet, Byrd and Kessel
played back-to-back solo mini-
concerts, each lasting 15 minutes.
Kessel soloed first, introducing his
medley of Gershwin tunes as ". . .
a variety of songs written by George
Gershwin and his lovely wife Ira."
Byrd took the stage next, effortlessly turning out jazz interpretations
of Brazilian dance music and
Spanish Flemenco, with an Errol
Garner warhorse thrown in for
good measure.
Chuck Redd, a Blakey-inspired
drummer, floored the audience with
his solos during the ensemble parts
of the performance, and on one occasion discarded his sticks entirely
to beat the drum skins and cymbals
with his bare hands.
Both Byrd and Kessel are internationally known guitarists in their
own right, and Sunday's performance provides ample evidence that
practice makes perfect. Byrd began
his career in the Washington, D.C.
area in the 1950s. He achieved
fame as one of the few performing
jazz musicians to ever score a motion picture, Nicholas Webster's
1960 suspense film Dead to the
World. Today he is noted for his
successful synthesis of classical and
jazz guitar styles.
Barney Kessel, a self-taught
guitarist, played with Oscar Peterson's jazz trio throughout the early
50s. Like Byrd, he has played a
significant role in jazz cinema, playing his guitar in five features, including Billy Wilder's Some Like It
Hot, Orson Welles' Touch Of Evil,
and Francis Ford Coppola's The
Conversation. He also appeared in
the most famous short in the history
of jazz cinema, the 1944 version of
Jammin' The Blues. His most important contribution to jazz was his
role in incorporating jazz guitar into the 50s cool jazz movement of
the west coast.
Byrd and Kessel are veteran jazzmen. In a world filled with hype,
these Great Guitars live up to their
reputation.

Journal, a rare view of Soviet life
By KERRY REGIER
"The what?" asked Tom.
"The Great Barbecue — the turning point of the Reconstruction
period. Don't tell me you haven't
heard of it!" (Grigorii pronounced
the word "barbecue" with the
gleeful relish of a Frenchman saying
"Marlboro".)
"I haven't," said Tom, and as
the last car slid through the
darkness, Grigorii illuminated for
us this lost part of American
history, mentioning feudal remnants, the industrial bourgeoisie,
and the struggle of the working
class. Listening to his small, dry,
pedantic voice mention names and
places I'd never heard of, I
wondered what Marxist looking-
glass we'd steped through . . . Was
he talking about the same America
we has just left?
Russian Journal
by Andrea Lee
Random House
Andrea Lee, newly MA (English)
from Harvard, with her husband
Tom, then working on his PhD in
Art, craft in SUB photos
Slavonic studies, spent a year in
1978-79 in the Soviet Union. Lee
kept a diary; it became her Russian
Journal.
With the opening of Russian
Journal Lee immediately creates a
dreamlike air: their "Stalin
Gothic" apartment tower looks like
an "absurd thirty-two-story wedding cake"; there are no knives in
the university cafeteria: the university residence "bristles with a daft
excess of decoration."
Lee describes a university
freshman dance, just before classes,
with the usual "universal ogling".
But at exactly 11 a.m., a uniformed
guard shuts the party down; the
students will leave early the next
morning "to fulfill another first-
year tradition: a month of work in a
potato harvest brigade on a collective farm."
Or Volodya, who was once
persecuted by the KGB, and now
speaks the Party's praise — though
at home in private, he mutters
about the dissenting book he says
he will write.
Or Valerii, a faithful Party functionary, who "has used the official
Party apparatus to gain himself the
best possible life." Valerii is an avid
collector of Western artifacts:
jeans, magazines, a West German
stereo, American rock records. Lee
took Valerii to the bar in the
American Embassy, normally off
limits to Soviets: "The Soviet
guards at the front of the embassy
must have been able to hear the
laughter and the music, and I
wondered what they were thinking,
standing down there in their grey
woollen coats in the snow."
Valerii danced and kidded
around, but became progressively
more talkative; more bitter. He
spoke of his hatred of the Soviet
Union, his job, the dull Russian
women, all a dead end . . . and then
suddenly frowning, "Why am I
always speaking such dirt about
Russians? Now you see what happens to us Soviet kids. We turn on
to Western stuff and start to hate
ourselves."
Or the Kafkaesque wedding of
Rima and Vasia: a room in the
Palace of Weddings, a lineup, three
musicians who play the first five
bars of Mendelssohn's march, an
official, a few official words and
the pair are ushered out. As the
door swings shut they hear the five
bars again behind them, on the
other side for the next couple.
Lee makes no trumpeted
statements about politics, nor does
she grandstand about freedom.
Russian Journal is a simple, direct
book, like most of the characters in
it. The overwhelming sentiment is
of loneliness, of personal, individual, private, universal separation through deep mistrust of
everyone and everything.
Two images remain at the end of
the book. One is an elderly women,
nosing curiously into one of the luxury shops reserved strictly for
foreigners, who is gently but
forcefully pushed out again. "It
was amazing to watch her wrinkled
red face, on which there struggled a
remarkable mixture of astonishment and avidity . . ."as she stared
at the glittering new world.
The other is a passing comment
about censorship, confinement, and
fear. "It's impossible to imagine
Huck Finn and Nigger Jim floating
down the Neva, the Volga, or the
Moskva — difficult to think of a
great Russian work that so directly
celebrates freedom. The Russian
book that I find closest in spirit to
Huckleberry Finn is Pasternak's
Doctor Zhivago, and as everyone
knows, that novel is banned in the
Soviet Union."
By CRAIG YUILL
Many people are capable of taking good photogrtaphs but it takes a
creative mind to make a
photograph a work of art.
Alice Thompson, Janice Peshke
and Danna White are three contemporary photographers, all recent
UBC fine arts grads who are
displaying their current work in the
SUB art gallery.
At The Grad II, is a series of
photographs taken by Alice
Thompson at her university graduation night. Most of the subjects of
these pictures have heads, limbs or
almost a entire body cut off
creating the impression that these
pictures were taken by a beginner.
But the truncated bodies are actually a deliberate attempt to isolate
feet, arms, hands and necklines to
record current fashions. The harsh
light created by the flash unit leaves
a strong impact on the viewer.
Janice Peshke's bodygrams, is a
more surrealistic series of
photographs composed of a male
torso and arms or, a female torso
and thighs. What makes Peshke's
photos interesting is her use of different types of lace and meshing in
the printing stage that leaves a permanent design on the bodies in the
prints. She also used strips of
acetate to acentuate the positions of
the models.
Danna White's Untitled work is a
considerably more modest series of
photographs than the other two.
They are simply photographs of a
man dressed in black featuring his
hand and facial expressions. There
is a lot of contrast in between his
skin, the clothing and background
creating a ghostly chalk-white effect.
The quality of the work in the
photographs is high, what a person
might expect in a gallery. It is obvious that the three women have a
serious dedication to their art and
photography.
Some of the artists' work exhibits
elements of art present in contemporary artistic photography, but
some of the exhibition merely
displays good technique without
clear artistic intent.

Julio and Romiet II, a tale of two lovers
A modern tale
By EVE WIGOD
Dramatis Personae:
Romiet, a maiden
J,f'l° ■   ,,     >   suitors to Romiet
Vermicello   (
Mazolio, friend to Julio
<?
¥
rj
Scene I. (Julio's dwelling. Julio and Mazolio
are seated at a table.)
Mazolio: (shaking dice) Nay, I'll whip
thee yet, my good fellow. As
surely as the tortoise whipp'd
the hare i' the old fable. Fortune
will take my part.
Julio: Hah! Thou art in prison! What
said'st thou of Fortune? If Fortune be thy friend, she's fickle
indeed! (Shakes dice, moves
playing piece) O happy, happy
day!
fV") Now do I myself on Boardwalk
\\/       find!
^^^ And so, with great dispatch, I'll
buy this deed.
I find it is precisely what I need.
It keeps its brother, Park Place,
company.
0 soon I'll have a fine monopoly!
Mazolio:      O shut thee up, thou know'st
that with an inn
On Boardwalk and Park Place
respectively,
Thou hast already got the best
of me.
Alas, I am as good as lost already.
My properties are mortgaged, one and all,
Except the worthless Baltic Avenue,
And that you haply miss each time around.
Julio: (sighing) And yet the rich are
poor, when they own entire empires, and yet lack that which
they most desire.
Mazolio: Then 1 hope the poor are rich,
and losers winners. For then I'd
win this game, without a doubt.
But truly, Julio, do I wish to
learn what aileth you.
Julio: I have been jilted, good Mazo
lio.
(Two hundred,  by your leave,
for passing 'Go.')
The lovely, cruel Raviolia
Hath given me the boot. O luckless swain,
Thus cast out of her heavenly
domain!
Mazolio:      Still   blubb'ring   o'er   that
heartless harridan?
Now list to me, my good friend
Julio.
1 have a cousin, visiting in town,
More splendorous than any dazzling gem,
More radiant than the gorgeous
Meryl Streep;
What's more,  she hath more
charm than — well, than I.
When  her  thou  meet'st,  this
Raviolia

hangs up
Romiet:
Shall fly from thy thoughts to
East Mongolia.
Julio: She   soundeth   like   perfection
come alive! Whence cometh this
sparkling jewel, from what exotic clime? From mysterious India? Or be she a blessed angel,
from heaven's billowy heights?
She cometh from Ladner.
Ladner?
Ay, good Julio.
Oh   . . .  well,  Mazolio,  when
can'st thou arrange a meeting? I
prithee make it soon; I pine, I
perish with desire to meet this
fair maiden.
With   me  she  lodges   for  her
stay's duration.
Methinks perchance that I can
reach her now,
And if she hath no other obligation,
Belike she'll wish to join our
company.
I'll to the phone, and with a
gladsome ring
Invite her hither. Then on some
pretence
Will I declare I have some business hence.
Thanks. Nowhere in Vancouver
shall I find a
friend more understanding or
more kind.
(In Mazolio "s dwelling.  Romiet
the phone and paces the floor.)
I know Mazolio, and beyond a
doubt
This is a plot, he hath conceived
a ploy
To fix me up with some delinquent boy.
What if he be another of these
jerks
Of whom I meet an awesome
multitude?
What if he chew gum loudly in
my ear,
Or mispronounce his words, or
lisp his q's?
What if he have dandruff, or
perchance
Decorate his toes with decals
bright?
What if he floss his teeth while
we're at the table,
Or bore me with an extensive,
gibb'ring talk
About his ant collection? Worst
of all,
What if he try, for sport, else to
impress,
To turn his head full circle perfectly?
(And if he should succeed, how
vile a notion!)
God save me from a clodhopper's devotion!
But then, perchance — perchance he will be fair,
And admirable, able, and sincere,
With virtues truly streaming out
his ears,
Enough to banish all my ghastly
fears.
I'll thither. If I do not play the
game
I'll neither lose nor win; myself
to blame.
(Julio's dwelling.)
(looking out the window) Look
where she comes! Why, there's
her Chevrolet.
(looking also)
O she doth teach the streetlights
to burn bright!
It  seems  she hangs  upon the
cheek of night
As a rich jewel in an Ethiop's
ear —
Beauty too  rich  for  use,  for
earth too dear.
Did my heart love till now? Forswear it sight!
For I ne'er saw true beauty till
this night.
Mazolio:      Ay, Julio, she's beautiful and yet
Thou hast but viewed her head
in silhouette,
Through   rainy   night   most
dreary and most dense,
(Scene III.
Mazolio:
Julio:
And in a car some 60 metres
hence.
Julio: Oft have I chided you, Mazolio,
For  being  matter-o'-fact.   But
now
Thou tak'st the cake! Dost thou
not think
I know true beauty when true
beauty I see?
Mazolio:      and now, my friend, I'll get me
gone;
Love flourisheth when not spied
upon. (Exit)
(Romiet   knocks;   Julio   answers.    Enter
Romiet.)
Romiet:       Art thou the swain of whom my
cousin spoke?
lulio: Ay, madam, ay, fair Romiet,
'tis I.
Julio at thy service till I die.
Romiet:        Julio? Said'st thou Julio?
Julio: Ay, my lady.
Romiet:       Mazolio   mentioned   not   your
name was Julio.
Julio: 'Tis. Now, as I have been say
ing, I am your most humble admirer. E'en before I saw thee, I
Romiet:        Julio!
0 Julio,  Julio,  wherefore art
thou Julio?
'Tis but thy name that is my
enemy.
Forsooth, I never could abide
that name.
1 grant thee, 'tis mine eccentricity,
But out of superstition did I vow
         I ne'er would date a man named
Sp      Julio.
^       What's   in   a   name?    Why
everything! A rose
By any other word would be absurd.
I would thy name were Armadillo,
Pestio or peccadillo;
Plagueo; Pastafazulio,
Or   any   other   name   but   —
JULIO!
(Exits, slamming door.)
(Enter Mazolio, from a different door.)
Mazolio:
Julio:
Mazolio:
Julio:
Mazolio:
By heaven, that was a fleeting
interview.
Why, in most anxious haste her
did I see
Departing hence, —
Mazolio, stifle thee.
0 serpent heart, hid with a
flow'ring face!
Did ever dragon keep so fair a
cave?
Beautiful tyrant, fiend angelical!
Dove feather'd raven, wolfish-
rav'ning lamb!
gigantic pygmy, microscopic
giant!
Dogmatic catfish, catatonic
dog!
1 perceive thou art upset, good
Julio. Whatever in tarnation
hath occurred? Something is
rotten in the state of Denmark.
Wrong play. Alas, she liketh not
my name,
And yet for reason would she
give me aught.
She always was a little out of
step.

When love beckons to you, follow
him,
And when his wings enfold you,
yield to him.
Though the sword hidden among
his pinions may wound you.
And when he speaks to you believe
in him,
Though his voice may shatter your
dreams  as the north  wind lays
waste the garden.
Without   Love    we    are    but
machines.

Another (re)view
of Romeo
What the world needs now . . .
This weekend, to many, is a celebration of love, love
which is commercialized unfortunately, but love which
is essential to self-respect, co-operation and fulfillment.
It is also a time to examine love. Love is a delicate
sharing of ego and body, a fragile bond not designed
to survive exploitation, hurt or lies. It is sexless,
ageless and knows no limits of race or creed for those
mature enough to feel and consent to it.
No one can judge love. To say that men who love
men, women who love women, are sick and perverse
is to diminish your own capacity for love. It is not
necessarily for procreation, and love does not always
serve as the basis for sex between men and women.
Love is not exploitive, it is not rape, harassment or
discrimination. It is an eternal battle against these
things, it is a battle taken up by many, including gays,
lesbians and women.
Gay and lesbian week is past, women's week is a
week hence. Listen to what is being said — it is
nothing radical, perverse or immoral. Too many actions, too many wars, are begun in the name of love
when they are based on hate, fear and prejudice.
These two weeks are an attempt to bring understanding to a concept which is universal.
Stop to think next time before you judge a relationship. As long as the people involved are content and
happy, as long as no one is being exploited or hurt,
there is no need for you to interfere.
All you need is love.
By CORINNA SUNDARARAJAN
Although an incredulous glance
at my ticket stub proves contrary, I
am convinced that Kerry Regier and
I must have attended two entirely
different plays. His review of the
Playhouse production of Romeo
and Juliet (The Ubyssey, Feb. 5) is a
completely inverted version of my
own reaction.
( freestyle)
Although Mr. Regier wittily
remarks that director Bob Baker
takes Shakespeare's term "chorus"
too literally, I felt the recurring
strains of the prologue, to easily
forgotten in the tumult of tragedy,
continually brought the basic
human weakness of excessive pride
and love into sharp focus. As a
music critic, Mr. Regier may have
found the chant "offensive," but as
a season's ticket holder I felt its
plaintive shrill effectively expressed
the lovers' frenzied and fated passion.
A second and more central
disagreement concerns the title
characters themselves: although
Mr. Regier commends Martha
Burns and Steven Ouimette for
their realistic portrayal of "adolescent excitability," I am tempted to
think they were given the lead roles
solely because they are the shortest
actors in the company. Their "excitability" was loud shouting and
their "childlike clumsiness" wasn't
acting: Burns and Ouimette are the
newest and least experienced
members of the cast, and it shows.
Finally,what actually prompted
me to write this letter is Mr.
Regier's flippant dismissal of Tom
Wood's Mercutio as "sounding for
all the world like Woody Allen."
Anyone who has seen Wood in A
Servant of Two Masters will recognize his comic genius (not, incidentally, based, on his pitch of voice),
so it is all the more admirable to see
this gifted actor carry off a
Shakespearian role stupendously —
his delivery of the Queen Mabbe
speech effectively cut through the
artifice of blank verse and reached
the audience with its spontaneous
magic.
The scenes involving Wood
(along with Nicola Cavendish and
Diane D'Aquila he is the
Playhouse's one claim to Canada
Council grants) were distinctly
superior to the rest of the
Playhouse's self-conscious bat at
the Bard — it was only with Wood's
Mercutio that Ouimette stopped
fidgetting with his tights and settled
down into character. This made the
duel scenes all the more poignant in
their fatal beauty, a point on which
Mr. Regier and I finally agree.

There are many ways to stop the arms race.
. ss
•s* ,^
I and many others were very
pleased to see the Jan. 29 issue of
The Ubyssey give so much attention
to the problem of the arms race and
threat of nuclear war. Surely, this
must be the most pressing problem
of our times. Unfortunately, your
editorial urging people to protest
and survive did not give any suggestions for how people can go about
doing this.
There are two steps an individual
can take. The first step is to become
aware of how acute the problem is.
Stop confrontations,
unite to fight KKK
I- would like to discuss several
issues relating to the published interview with KKK leader Alex Mc-
quirter, the protest of that interview
sponsored by the Troskyist League,
and subsequents letters and articles
dealing with those events.
I am noi e. Trotskyist. However, 1
did attend the protest of The
Ubyssey in the hope of gaining information about the Mcquirter interview. Unfortunately, the
Trotkyists were confrontational
and the Ubyssey staff were defensive. As a result, little communication occurred, and my questions remained unanswered.
1 think it is important that people
be made aware of how real and
serious is the threat from the KKK
and other extreme rightist organizations. However, these organizations
grow on publicity, and there is a
fine line between writing and exposing their fascism, and implicitly
legitimizing them by dealing with
them on what appeared to be a
"business as normal" basis. This is
an issue that demands careful
thought ad public discussion, and is
what should have been dealt with
during the protest. It is the fault of
both sides that it wasn't.
Following the protest there have
been several articles and letters
published with a mild to rabid anti-
communist flavor (such as "Shoot
Commies"). From an outside
perspective, this looks like a defensive reaction to what was perceived
as a personal or collective attack on
The Ubyssey staff. I think that
both these articles and the
Trotkyist's response obscure the
real issue of concern: right wing
fascists are organizing in our midst.
I can't help but get a sick feeling in
my stomach that while the liberal
press and the left wing activists fight
it out on paper, the KKK laps up the
publicity and are the only ones who
really come out ahead.
The rising of right wing neo-nazis
is real, and it is serious. Anyone
who is not concerned and disturbed
by this is either living in a dream
world, or just plain stupid. I urge
both The Ubyssey staff and the
Trotskyists to stop seeing each
other as opponents. Get off your
confrontational — defensive positions and think about who the real
enemy is.

Recently, several students from
UBC attended a disarmament symposium at the University of
Washington which attracted more
than 70 students and faculty.
Speaker after speaker (including
scientists, physicians, congressmen
and former high-ranking military
advisors) outlined in solemn and
grave detail the various aspects of
how the arms race is hurting us
right now, and how close we are to
obliterating our society by a nuclear
holocaust.
I cannot convey with just a few
short words the sense of urgency
you acquire when you are confronted with the facts. It is very
frightening. One speaker commented that anyone who wasn't
prepared to try to do something
about the arms race after hearing
these talks had something seriously
wrong with him. The symposium
ended with suggestions for concrete
actions citizens could take.
The symposium was such a
phenomenal success that we are
planning a smiliar event at UBC on
Saturday, Feb. 27. It will be called
Ending the Arms Race: A Canadian
Perspective, and will feature many
prominent and knowledgable
speakers. I would like to strongly
urge everyone who possibly can to
attend. It will be the ultimate educational event, and will be sure to
motivate you to act.
There are many ways to become
active in the peace movement once
you have become aware. The easiest
and probably best way is to join one
of the many peace groups in the
lower mainland who work together
as a loose-knit grassroots movement. There is an active peace
group at UBC called Students for
Peace and Mutual Disarmament.
We sponsor many talks etc. on campus (eg. the Bates and Wallace talks
described in the Jan. 29 issue), do
research into peace issues, and provide an effective channel for
students to have their voices heard
with the millions of others in the
blossoming North American peace
movement.
However, there are many other
ways you can be active as an individual. Everyone would do what
is easiest and most convenient for
them. You can write a letter to a
newspaper or politician, talk to
your friends and relatives, or sign a
petition. You can wear a button,
display a bumpersticker or poster,
or donate a buck. You can compose
a poem, song or play. Bring up the
issue with your group, church or
organization. Attend a benefit, participate in a demonstration, or walk
in a march.
Learning about the arms race will
give you a sense of urgency. Doing
something about the arms race will
give you a sense of hope. The mass
movement for disarmament is coming of age, and you can and should
be part of it. Each individual must
make the personal decision that the
current situation is madness, and
must be changed. The question
should not be why do some people
join the peace movement, but
rather why do some people not join
the peace movement. It may be corny but it is true that if you are not
part of the solution, then you are
part of the problem. In closing, I
would like to offer Henri Bergson's
advice that we "Act as men of
thought; think as men of action."
You can start on Feb. 27.

Sentimentality is not the role of
the state. A government must be
able to discern the corporate entity
of the land and should be willing to
work exclusively for it. The extent
to which this is accomplished is a
direct measure of that government's
legitimacy.
Likewise, it is the duty of the

Get set for Sushi
Gosh, where is everybody? I just
read (in The Ubyssey) that the UBC
Japan Club has extended its
TRAVEL-JAPAN application
deadline! Unbelievable! Every summer a handful of students fly to
Japan, and these privileged few
(and you could be one of them),
these chosen-among-many, party
for six wonderful weeks — it's a
blast! Just imagine, you can gorge
sushi, in a real sushi bar, guz/.le
tsubutsubu, wander through
temples and sumurai mansions,
delight in the pleasures of the
Japanese living, actually feel the
Nara Buddha and all their other
great art treasures — yes, feel, 1
mean why just look? you could do
that with a picture book. Oh, there
are signs, suggesting you don't, but
they're in Japanese!
Which reminds me, language is
no problem at all. You'll be provided with a phrase book and you'll
have a chance to learn the basics
after the movie on the plane, or during it, if it's one you've already
seen. Alternatively, you'll probably
have a chance to pick up a little
Spanish or Inuit (all Japanese
students are required to study these
and others, depending on the
university), in L.A. or Alaska,
which you will fly to before actually
going to Japan — (cheap flights you
understand).
Besides, you'll be staying with
families of students from English
and friendship clubs at any one of
three prestigious and/or
academically advanced U's in
Tokyo and Kyoto.
This of course is the whole point
of the exchange, not only do you
get to see a whole side of Japan that
most hotel-hoppers don't, but you
will SAVE at least ONE MILLION
yen, which is more than FIVE
THOUSAND AMERICAN $, (god
knows how much in Canadian).
And that's a very conservative
estimate, based on the spending
habits of your real cheap-o shoestring travellers.

students should — no, must — take
advantage of this exchange program. It's all organized by students
here and in Japan, and a lot of
work is involved, but it's done for
you. All you have to do is get on
over to the club office (Sub 230c)
any noon soon, and write your
name on a little piece of paper or
phone me at 224-9700.
There's probably only space for
two or three more at most, so in the
event that there's no space left, you
may be able to get on a waiting list
for next summer and in the meantime, plan on inviting one of the
Japanese students to your own
home this summer and enjoy Super-
Natural B.C., though it's not quite
the same.
And if you like dancing and body
contact, head straight for Rop-
pongi; crowds can add a whole new
dimension you probably never imagined!
Don't wonder if you'll be able to
afford it, because you most likely
can't. But just consider it an important investment in yourself and in
the future economic stability of
East-West relations. No really, it's
not so expensive and anyways,
you'll soon get used to eating
o-chazuke!
One last point: the whole trip is
usually finished off with an Asian
fling that lasts two or three weeks
depending on your energy or your
cash, whichever holds out longer,
hitting any of all Asian spots that
capture your imagination. Drink
snake blood in a dark little alley in
Taiwan; shop Hong Kong (or get
mugged); be wild and risk
Bangkok, maybe even meet the
underworld king Wu; or just loll
about on the exotic Thai beaches of
007 fame, way down in the Bay of
Bengal; even go to the People's
Republic of China — in fact go and
do anything you want. The idea is,
of course, to take advantage of being all the way over there with a
group of friends.
And it all starts with the UBC

strengthening post-secondary
education as a part of a comprehensive program of industrialization,
the Bennett regime has layed the
foundations for future cutbacks.
The government, through the
Ministry and the University Council
of British Columbia, has tightened
its controls over the three universities' budgets. By determining in
detail how much each university can
spend on all portions of their
budgets, Victoria is now better able
to cut back on their financial support. Although next year's UBC
budget (inflation accounted for)
will decline by no more than two or
three per cent, massive retrenchment is possible in the near future.
This possibility of huge cutbacks
is almost a certainity when viewed
in the light of recent and planned
government activities. Despite a
sales tax of six per cent, and other
high levels of tax and crown corporation fees, Victoria is still having
difficulty financing such prized
white elephants as Pier B.C., B.C.
Place and Expo 86.
Playing the role of the do-gooder
for the Pacific Rim has become expensive for the internationalists of
the legislative assembly. But they're
not worried. To them the problem
can be solved by merely taxing more
British Columbian businesses out of
existence and killing the universities.
The universities and technical institutes should be used to supply
trained manpower to the economy
(including the arts) of British Col
umbia. The cutbacks of the 1980s,
will obviously injure the output side
of post-secondary education.
However, the government is apparently not even satisfied with this.
In a recent speech to the Young
Socreds, Bennett reaffirmed his opposition to fair tuition fees. While
British Columbians could face fee
increases as great as 60 per cent,
foreign students will continue to
receive massive government subsidies.
But we shouldn't be surprised. If
the government subsidizes
foreigners to take our coal, fish and
timber, then why not also allow
foreign students to rip off our
educational system?

In recent days you have run no

The purpose of this letter is to

in your otherwise flawless articles.

injustice done to the horse that
(against its will I'm sure) participated in this heinous ritual? (As
most of you at The Ubyssey know,

the moral rape of this valiant

Similarly, unsigned letters or letters

Law students protest
sexist ride, Red Rag
The UBC law students association protests the continuance of the
Lady Godiva ride and the publication of the Red Rag.
These events are sexist and racist in the extreme. As such they offend
both the university community and the public at large, and serve to undermine the reputations of the administration and students.
The Lady Godiva ride is a reminder to the campus population of the
social inequities against which we should all be working. The Reg Rag finds
humor in the degradation and ridicule of minority groups, and even goes so
far as to poke fun at the victims of Clifford Olson. Neither it nor the Lady
Godiva ride has any place at an institute of higher education..
We ask students and administration to take immediate and meaningful
action in support of women and minority groups, and put an end to these
outrages.

Place faith in God, not earthly men
The sadness and anger which I
experienced upon reading Mark
Reimer's letter in The Ubyssey,
Jan. 19, is difficult to describe. I
feel sadness for Mark, anger toward
those he describes as fundamentalist Christians.
I can sympathize because I've
been there too, to the "sacred halls
of three different bible colleges,
amazed to discover how often the
word "love" was spoken, how rarely understood or acted upon. Grace
in the form of forgiveness was
meted out not unconditionally but
to those who conformed — not only to a moral standard, that's easy
— to a dress code, a doctrinal statement, and a set of rules that forbade drinking, smoking, and certain music and movies. I saw that
the image was placed before reality,
contrary to Jesus' words (Mtt.23)pt
was the token gestures of the
Pharisees that often ruled.
Was Christ real? He seemed distant because I looked for Him in
those   around   me   but   couldn't
discover much love for someone unwilling to conform. I was struggling, with myself and others, looking
for truth but hearing too many trite
phrases. There was much
"religion" but little "relationship," much "image" but
little "reality." I was discovering
the difference between scientia and
sapientia, knowledge of the mind
vs. the heart.
Then I saw the Moral Majority,
men preaching from the Old Testament to justify the status quo,
reversing the golden rule of interpreting the OT by the New and seeing its fulfillment and clarification
in Jesus and His words. They spoke
of arms build-up and sought to
force men to conform to a certain!
set of moral standards.
I couldn't understand — if Jesus
didn't work that way why should
His followers? Instead He went to
the Cross, and even Paul admitted
it seemed foolish (I Cor. 1), but
somehow   saw   wisdom   in   it.
Now, as I've told
you many times. . .
Bill Tieleman's recent contributions to The Ubyssey display a
remarkable level of hard-bitten divisiveness. He has publicly called
on students to boycott groups he doesn't like, even to the point of
refusing to speak to them or to read their leaflets. He expressed particular hatred for any group in which the Marxist-Leninists have any
influence. Properly rebuked in the letters column for this narrow,
anti-democratic stand, he replied in "leftist" phraseology, and suggested that it was the "praxis" of the Marxist-Leninists he was

-r;f*
against, not their ideas. He alluded to the Oct. 17 attack by the
British Columbia Organization to Fight Racism against the People's
Front to justify his stand.
The boycott of the Marxist-Leninists Tieleman calls for is just
what the BCOFR tried vainly to impose on the People's Front on
Oct. 17. BCOFR allowed a number of different groups to join a
public march against the Ku Klux Klan, but organized a helmeted
goon squad to keep the People's Front out of that march.. On Monday, Feb. 8, in B.C. Provincial Court a judge hearing one of the
many charges laid against the People's Front members concluded
that it was this BCOFR goon squad, which included undercover cops
and KKK members, which precipitated the violence; he acquitted a
supporter of the People's Front of the charge of possession of a
dangerous weapon.
BCOFR's efforts to physically split the anti-KKK march backfired
because of the proper and correct resistance by the People's Front.
It is significant that the tall tales about the People's Front violence
are generally carried by those who sport "leftist" and "progressive"
credentials. Contrary to Bill Tieleman's advice, I urge students to
look at all individuals and groups with an inquiring mind, because
behind the left-sounding phrase-mongering one may find the most
reactionary and spiteful sort of people. Students should decide for
themselves, on the basis of serious investigation, who are legitimate,
honest, and have the interests of the people as their priority.

^.
Thoreau, Gandhi, and King could
see it.
These fundamentalists wanted to
use force to bring in the kingdom,
never mind that Paul saw the law as
inadequate (Galatians) and both he
and Jesus knew only personal
revolution was the answer. Thoreau
wrote that "the law never made
men a whit more just; and by means
of their respect for it even the most
well-disposed are daily made the instruments of unjustice" (Civil
Disobedience).
Why is fundamentalism like it is?
Conformity and dogmatism provide security and community — two
basic human needs. The absence of
conflict is called peace, though it's a
dull and stagnant thing.
But the formulas as ends rather
than means help to avoid God, a
confrontation that is often costly
and always uncomfortable.
Limiting one another limits God in
us — if one person is true to himself
he is true to God's idea of him and
he confronts us with our emptiness;
we'll have to crucify him.
Don't be fooled, Jesus wasn't a
militarist. The Cross is nonsense if
He was. Neither is He the
pussywillow we've made Him; only
a superficial reading of the Gospels
can give that impression. He loved,
and real love always requires a kind
of death. But He wouldn't die to
defend property or comfort — it's
there in Mt. 5 just like it's there in
Isa. 58 and the other prophets.
The "clean up the world" attitude arises when we fail to
recognize our own dark sides. We
feel that our egos are Holy and we
project the evil onto everyone and
everything else. We have to believe
that we've "measured up" because
everyone else has (ha!), so we deny
the inner reality.
Amazing, but in so doing Christians deny the backbone of their
faiths; someone has measured up
for them and Holiness is by faith
(Amos 5:2ff; Ro. 4 etc). We easily
become "whitewashed tombs"
(Mtt. 23) and see the evil as outside
us "alcohol tempted me; it is evil."
Yet Paul taught that "all things
created by God are good" (1 Tim.
4).
Milton wrote that if a man
"believe things only because his
pastor says so or the assembly so
determines, without knowing other
reason, though his belief be true,
yet the very truth he holds becomes
his heresy" (Areopagitica). Nietzsche wrote: "Here the ways of men
part: if you wish to strive for peace
of soul and pleasure, then believe, if
you wish to be a devotee of truth,
then inquire," (Letter, 1865).
Jesus said, "I am the Way, the
Truth, and the Life." What
madness that we His followers
often strive to hide reality and prove that ours is the happy, healthy,
wealthy way. We fail to trust
Christ's love to attract men to
Himself and try to help Him with
our (too often false) promises of
reward. No, Nietzsche was right,
the path to truth is a hard one. Victory connotes battle and Jesus' battle was the greatest ever fought. He
called men to lose their lives to save
them.
Jesus never called anyone to
security, rather He spoke of
persecution, "fleeing" from one
town to the next. He Himself had
"nowhere to lay His head." He said
that the greatest must be the servant
of all — His way up was down. The
peace He offered was one independent of circumstance — "not as the
world gives" (Jn. 14) — the promise of the Spirit, the personal relationship implicit in "We will come
to him, and make our abode with
him" (v. 23).
I feel in a difficult situation. I am
frustrated that so many equate fundamentalism with Christianity —
do we judge all actors by Charlie's
Angels? At the same time I share
responsibility for the image we
Christians have. We need to take
Edmund Burke seriously: "The only thing necessary for the triumph
of evil is for good men to do
nothing."
No man can model Christ perfectly, and no man can face Heaven
or Hell for me, so each of treads the
path of truth alone. Poor examples
of Christ do not disprove that He
lives. My faith rests on God, not
men.

Thanks, one and all for contributing to the great monkey
debate, but enough is more

And we've had enough.

Lack of bias vital
I was frankly appalled by the article you ran on the arts' all-
candidates meeting (titled "No Free
Lunch") Tuesday, and I'm writing
this after the last paper before the
election and before the votes are
counted so that my motives can't be
questioned.
It's not that I'm that picky, you
understand. I don't really mind that
the article was run with a strange
headline that bore no predictive
value for what was underneath, or
even that it ignored the four candidates for president and vice president who spoke at that meeting.
What does bother me is that of
the six candidates for council rep
who spoke at the meeting, you only
saw fit to report on the platforms of
four of them. The ex-progressive
slate candidates and Peter Goddard
all enjoyed some coverage of their
plans and priorities, but Sylvia Ber-
ryman and Kent Westerberg had
only their names listed like some
journalistic footnote.
I don't understand, for example,
why Goddard's remarks are news
and that of another candidate for
the same position, Westerberg, say,
was not.
As you must be aware, balance
and a lack of bias are vital to any
newspaper's credibility, particularly
in covering elections. Yet if it had
been your intention to endorse the
four candidates whose positions are
reported you could not have done it
better than ignoring the others, as
you did. A prospective voter turning to the old rag for information
was given no information whatsoever as to why or why not to vote
for Berryman or Westerberg. If the
endorsement was indeed your intention it belonged in editorial space,
not in a supposed news article.
Actually, if neither Berryman nor
Westerberg had even showed up at
the meeting they could have fared
no worse than they did in your
pages — receiving as they did the
same coverage as Victoria Darn-
borough, who didn't show up.
So come on — even The Ubyssey
can do better than that.

Don 9t confuse faith with science
The creationism vs. evolution
debate has always puzzled me. I am
quite familiar with evolution but I
am somewhat uninformed about
creationism. This is not through
lack of trying, however. Being in
the sciences I have been taught to
approach scientific problems using
accepted methods of scientific procedure. Namely attempting to explain natural phenomena by observing and looking for patterns, formulating hypotheses, and then
testing them through experimentation and further observation. Initial
hypotheses tend to be too specific,
not being able to explain the general
case so they must be continually
modified until they approach the
true situation.
I am quite willing to accept alternate theories if they are presented as
a science and subjected to scientific
method. This is where I feel I am ignorant about creationism. I have to
read a paper in a scientific journal
by a creationist that attempts to explain natural phenomena as we see
them today. The understanding I
have of creationism is that the
universe was created less than
10,000 years ago. If this is the case
please explain to me how light from
celestial bodies millions of light
years away can be seen on earth.
Explain to me the presence of
fossils far from any ocean within
your time scale. Or how, after the
great flood, two members of each
species could sustain a food chain
and produce viable populations
without the obvious effects of inbreeding?
Scientific   disciplines   are   incredibly interrelated, each using the
laws and theories of the others to
advance their own. There are many
common threads sewn through
science and the disciplines must
work within this framework. If a
creationist can present a theory that
is scientific in design and evidence
(ancient literature does not constitute absolute evidence) and which
also conforms to scientific laws
. . . publish it in a journal. Convince me with a theory that has
fewer paradoxes than present
theories. Otherwise don't confuse
faith with scientific thought.

I would be very grateful if you
could print the results of this last
week's Forestry Co-sponsored Red
Cross Blood Donor Clinic. 10 cases
of beer were offered to the faculty
with the largest percentage of participation on a within faculty basis.
The results are as follows: first,
forestry with 23 per cent; second,
agriculture with 13 per cent; third,
nursing/phys ed with 10 per cent;
fourth, engineering with 8 per cent;
fifth, science with 7 per cent.
Total count  for the week  was

The fundamentals of fundamental Christianity
A response to Irene Plette's
Perspectives column of Feb. 11: I
was a bit confused at what particular bone Plette was trying to
pick with me concerning my
caricature of "conservative-
fundamentalist 'born-again''' Christians in relation to the Canadian
Radio and Telecommunications
Commission application for airwave rights for religious broadcasting. My confusion came from
the fact that I found little in Plete's
article toa disagree with.
I think the answer lies in that I
was talking about specific 'fundamentalist' groups who in fact do
use   their   simple   conversion   ex-
Why bother?
I hate Valentine's Day. I hate the
color red, I hate the explicit sexual
overtones to the "heart," I hate all
the space cadet ladies they get on
the Vancouver Morning show who
spend 20 minutes telling you how to
make numerous tacky and irrelevant Valentines geegaws, I hate the
commercial overload of ads in The
Ubyssey from a herd of lusty
morons, I hate chocolates, I hate
cutesiness . . . and I'm not keen on
doillies.
Why does anyone bother? Do we
have to sanctify lust and
tastelessness for one day of the
year? Must we pander to the commercial instinct of this oppressive,
exploitive society? Must we get
depressed?
For months and months now I've
gone happily about my life, loving
everyone as a friend, doing my
good deeds and even brushing my
teeth at least once a day. Now I feel
left out, alone, despondent.
On the other hand, maybe Valentine's day has nothing to do with it.
My roomate has been unemployed
for four months, my car's brakes
are broken, it snowed and I have no
snowies, and it now costs 75 cents at
the laundromat to do one load of
clothes.
Fuck Valentine's Day. This year
I'm going to have Ballantyne's day.
On the rocks.

perience understanding of Christian
mission to seek programming control
of a band of airwave space. I agree
that there are many more Christian-
type people who would describe
themselves as "fundamentalist "and
not have such a narrow understanding of mission; but it seems to be a
truism that it is only certain "fundamentalists" (their self-definition)
who seek such control. In my arti
cle, I thought I stated that I thought
such an experience was a genuine
Christian experience; my concern
was that it would have the weight of
technology (TV and editorial control?) to promote it as the only
understanding.
Therefore, if Plete is concerned
about not having all fundamentalists lumped in with this bunch,
she, too, should be opposed to their
CRTC application, simply because
it is this particular group of Christians who associate Christianity
with right wing political concerns
(Jerry Falwell), and other "narrow" cultural concerns. (I am not
opposed to Christians expressing a
political viewpoint, but am opposed
to groups being given access to tools
like television to monopolize viewpoints.)

Students for Action * naive and simplistic'
After reading the letter from the
Students for Action in Tuesday's
paper, I felt reassured. I felt reassured for several reasons. First, in
these dark and cynical times, it is reassuring to think that there are still
people out there who are able to
write such naive and simplistic letters, and do such naive and simplistic things. It apparently matters not
to these people (who incidentally
could benefit from a shorter acronym) that, as awful and boring as
the "establishment" is, there are
more responsible channels for this
type of energy.
The word "establishment" brings
up another thing that reassures me;
some 15 years after the fact, there
still exist real live hippies who can,
presumably with a straight face, deplore "General Evilness." Perhaps
Dungeons and Dragons would be a
more suitable outlet for this type of
concern. It is reassuring to see that
after years of dedicated abuse the
rhetoric of the Left is still operative,
and still a formidable tool for saying not a heck of a lot. The disparity between "provincial" and "provisional" is either a typo or a "Ca-
nadianizing" of the Red Brigades,
and this then would make the item
in the newspaper either a "communique" or a "manifesto." Pre
sumably the latter, since the SFA
have as yet not kidnapped anybody.
Don't you guys feel just a little bit
silly?
It is reassuring to see that talk is
still cheap, and that the SFA can
speak of preserving quality education (incidentally, who does that
modifier belong to in paragraph
three?), and a few lines later say
that "the writing is still on the wall:
UBC is doomed." Inspirational
stuff indeed.
One less positive note; your spray
painting group (dare I call them a
cadre?) could benefit from a few
lessons in effective advertising.
Among the examples of your
"street art" which I saw around
campus, none of which were distinguishable for their persuasiveness, some were misspelled, and
several were left unfinished. If you
want to use spray paint, the first
thing any anarchist learns is to use
red or black. Yellow just doesn't
have it.
So as not to appear unduly biased, let me just go over your argument to make sure I'm not misrep
resenting you. You feel that by
painting a few slogans around campus, and thereby costing the university, already hit by cutbacks and retrenchments, money to clean these
irresponsibilities off of the walls,
you have struck a blow against
"government attitudes toward education," which are the root of the
problem. You needn't have withheld your names; nobody would
'have done anything to you anyways, except perhaps laugh.

Five year plan needs workers
The B.C. ministry of education-
funded "work study program,"
now in its fifth year of operation at
UBC, offers part-time employment
to needy students through various
departments and faculties around
campus. Students can work up to 10
hours per week until the program
terminates Mar. 31 provided a
Canada student loan assessment
demonstrates their need.
There are a limited number of
W/S positions available for
students who demonstrate financial
need and satisfy the following
qualifications:
• must be considered by the
ministry of education to be a
B.C. resident.
• must have applied for C.S.L. or,
if ineligible, must have completed and submitted to the
awards office a C.S.L. application clearly marked "work study
only."
• the assessment must demonstrate an unsatisfied financial
need, for example:
1)  need over and above the maximum award.
ii) lack of expected student or
parental contribution.
iii)  high rent (over $200/mo.).
iv) exceptional   expenses   not
recognized by the B.C. student   assistance   program
(must be documented),
v) the   budget   deficit    must
amount to $400 or more.
Deadline for completed applications is Feb. 17, 1982. For applications and further information

as against what it means to be a

Deficit dooms
with cutbacks
The University of British Columbia has an operating deficit of approximately $7.4 million according to UBC Reports volume 28,
number 2, special edition (January
13, 1982). These cutbacks will have
grave effects on the special education department.
The University of British Columbia 1981-1982 calendar states that
the five year major in special education is a program that "prepares
teachers to educate mildly handicapped children (mildly intellectually impaired, behaviorally impaired and learning disabled.)" We,
the students of this program, fail to
understand the rationale behind the
possible reduction or suspension of
such an essential program as the
five year major in special education.
The UBC Reports special edition
states "The termination of
academic programs is a matter of
serious consequence which cannot
be undertaken without careful
deliberation including the approval
of senate. Among the important
considerations are the potential injustice to students already enrolled
in such programs, the legitimate
ambitions and aspirations of
students and their parents, and the
unique role of UBC in providing
specialized programs which are not
available at other provincial institutions." Students have come from
outside the province to be educated
in this unique five year special
education program.
The honorable Brian Smith
stated in his minister of education's 1981 report on children with
special educational needs that "we
must make a special effort to meet
the educational needs of these
children. ... It is our social duty
. . . This requires the provision of
special services to ensure that access."
We realize that with today's
economic situation society is facing
financial difficulties, however if this
program is to be retrenched the
residents of British Columbia will
encounter further financial strain
because the needs of these special
children have not been met. In
short, these children will not
become functionally independent
individuals in society. These cutbacks will not only affect the
students of the University of British
Columbia but all of society.

From page 13
She marcheth to a strange percussionist.
But bucketh up, my friend, and
thou shalt see
How thou can'st win her with
sweet poetry.
(Scene IV. (Romiet's dwelling in Ladner.
Romiet and Vermicello on veranda, having a
barbecue. Julio down below, with a ukelele.
He can see only Romiet, from where he is,
and thinks she is alone.)
Julio: (to himself)
(He sings, and strums ukelele:)
If, living in this energy crunch, we think
That darkness will descend, and dreary
doom
Will creep o'er Ladner, readying to sink
Our ever-waning spirits in the gloom;
And e'en the sun's bright rays cannot succeed
In lighting our drab hours in this crisis;
Then, when we more illumination need,
Our answer doth surpass the best devices.
'Tis  not   th'electric  orb   turned   on  by
switch,
Nor kerosene, nor ash-collecting coal,
Nor candle;  rather,  'tis the smile with
which
A goddess with a sympathetic soul
Occasions every higher vertebrate
To veritably sing and jubilate.
Romiet:        (to Vermicello)
Ugh! What a vile voice! What a
tedious tune!
This horrid schmaltz can't end a
bit too soon.
Go get thy sword! Prepare thee
for to duel.
Thy steel  shall  bid good riddance to yon fool.
Vermicello: (Picks up skewer from barbecue, brandishes it.)
Go get thy sword, thou syphilitic
knave!
I'll test thy valor! Art thou still
so brave?
(Julio runs to get his sword. He is accidentally stabbed by a stagehand, who has been
waiting in the wings to hand Julio the sword.
Julio falls out onto stage.)

Why I'm so eloquent in my dy-

Not mere iambics speak I, but
what's worse,
Ingeniously I die in rhyming

the sight of blood! 'Tis most unpleasant.
Methinks I'll split this scene,
and in a hurry.
And so, t'escape this nonsense,
I'll to Surrey. (Exit quickly)
O careless stagehand, Julio is
dead!
Thou art a downright klutz, I've
always said.
Stagehand:   'Tis true I sometimes wax a bit
obtuse.
But cease thy fretting, ladv,
what's the use? (Sings)
Your true love from this scene hath fled.
Is that not just like Vermicello?
And your admirer Julio's dead.
Come, come, you never liked the fellow.
Romiet:       Thou  speak'st  true;  and  yet,
whilst I regard him now, come
to think on it, he doth seem
rather fair of face. In faith, 'tis
quite a pity him thou slew. Ay,
though    his   present   posture
leaveth much to be desired, I believe I grow rather fond of him.
And the name Julio be not so
foul after all. . .
Stagehand:  Enough! The play is done! Let
us go home.
But first we'd best dispose of
yonder gnome.
Fie, fie, he's short, but thou ex-
aggerate'st.
Stagehand:  My love,  the hour  is  waning
whilst thou wait'st.
We'll lug this erstwhile lubber
with sweet haste;
We've bounteous time to spend
but none to waste.

A clumsy actor will we ne'er

Allow to cleave the bond betwixt

SUS constitution altered
By CRAIG BROOKS
Science students have a new con-
sitution but it isn't the same one
they voted 87 per cent in favour of
Jan. 13.
Science undergraduate society
president and Alma Mater Society
president-elect Dave Frank, requested student council make
changes before formally adopting
the document Wednesday.
Frank asked council to accept the
constitution with amendments to
sections dealing with the respon
sibilities and duties of the president
and public relations officer, and to
the procedure for amending to the
constitution.
Frank said Wednesday he had no
qualms about asking council for the
changes. "I talked it over with the
executives and the presidents of the
department clubs and they all
agreed (to the changes)."
However, not all science students
like Frank's changes. Fifteen
science students, members of the
science    "black-hand"    pranks
group, which includes Randy
Frank, Dave Frank's brother, protested the changes by attempting to
"take-over" The Ubyssey Thursday.
Dave Frank called the amended
clauses "jokes," saying they had
originally been inserted to make the
science constitution "one of the
best read ones on campus."
He said it was appropriate that
the clause be removed from the
document approved by council.
The deleted sections made it a

AMS, Group West to court
By CRAIG BROOKS
The Alma Mater Society will
have to go to court to recover
damages from a Vancouver computer programming company,
council was told Wednesday.
Finance director Jane Loftus said
the firm, Group West, failed to provide computer programs to meet the
needs of the society's business
operations, and as a result had
caused great chaos in AMS daily
business procedures.
The AMS sent a letter to the firm
requesting repayment of some of
the money spent on the programs,
Council Briefs
Loftus said. All the AMS got back
was a letter denying the request,
and a bill for more money, she said.
A specialist in litigation law feels
the AMS case against the firm is
"especially strong" and Group
West is unlikely to win a court case,
Loftus said.
The AMS terminated its relationship with the firm and hired another
firm to make the computer software
perform the originally desired functions.
The AMS has so far spent
$65,000 on computer equipment,
excluding   programming,    Loftus
said.
* * *
The number of spring and summer session courses have been reduced 10 per cent from last year's
level as a result of recent budget
cutbacks, part-time students' representative Eileen MacBean told
council. "With the recent (33 per
cent) tuition fee increases, we will
be paying more for less," she said.
.. AM& pr-e-s^ent; .Marjea, Haugen
said that a $67,000 cut in funding
for the UBC alumni association will
probably mean a large cutback in
student-oriented programs by the
association.
*     *     *
The federal government has told
the provinces they must reach
agreement on a new established
programs financing agreement, or
risk having a agreement forced on
them, external affairs coordinator
James Hollis told council.
EPF is a series of cash transfers
from the federal government to the
provinces for post-secondary
education and health care.
Of the current B.C. provincial
government budget for post-
secondary education, more than
half of it comes from the federal
government by means of the
transfers.
Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau
said Tuesday the federal government will agree to continue the current arrangements for at least two
more years, but only if the provinces promises to match any
percentage increases the federal
government gives with similar increases, Hollis said.
The provinces, particularly
Quebec, reject the idea outright, he
added.
The AMS audit for the 1981-82
fiscal year will not be available until
next Tuesday, finance director Jane
Loftus said.
The surplus for the year "is in
five figures" she said. She declined
to give any more details until the
audit is formally released by the accounting firm.
The AMS annual general
meeting, at which the report must
be presented under AMS by-laws, is

AMS president Marlea Haugen
came under attack for blaming the
failure of a council motion to be
carried out on AMS staff.
Student board of governors
representative Chris Niwinski
criticized Haugen's comment last
week in The Ubyssey that the AMS
executive secretary had been
responsible for failing to deliver a
letter to the campus RCMP requesting lady godiva to be arrested
before the ride took place.
He called the comments "highly
unethical and irresponsible."
Haugen said she had not intended
to blame the secretary, but had
simply meant to point out that a
lack of communications had occurred over the urgency of the letter.

Council called the AMS annual
general meeting for Wednesday,
Feb. 17.
At the meeting, annual reports
from the president and general
manager, as well as the audit for the
preceding fiscal year are presented
to students. The new executive,
elected in January, will formally
take office at the meeting.
In an attempt to attract students,
the meeting will be held in conjunction with a beer garden at noon in
the SUB council chambers.
Any other form of business, normally requiring a referendum can
also be passed, if a quorum of 2,300
students show up.
Vice president Pat Chow said she
did not expect the meeting to
achieve quorum.
capital offense for the SUS president to make an error, and required
the publications coordinator to infiltrate UBC media, including The
Ubyssey and CITR.
Frank also asked council to add
phrases to make the constitution
amendable only by a general
meeting or a referendum of science
students, rather than by vote of the
science council.
Science student Horacio de la
Cueva tried unsuccessfully to block
approval of the constitution. He
told council science students were
never presented with the proposed
changes before they voted.
De la Cueva said the constitution
was sold on a "Help intramurals,
vote yes" campaign. "The constitu
tion (changes) did not deal with intramurals, and was sold in a very
deceptive way," he said.
Frank denied de la Cueva's accusations, saying 20 copies of the
constitution were posted in science
buildings and polling stations, and
summaries appeared in two science
newsletters.
De la Cueva was "just wasting
(student) council's time by bringing
up grammatical and trivial points,"
Frank said. "He had my phone
number, he should have talked to
me (before the vote)."
AMS president Marlea Haugen
criticized de la Cueva's presentation
to council, calling the points raised
"trivial" and a waste of time.
SFU women
protest cuts
Canadian University Press
The Simon Fraser University
women's centre has joined the protest against the provincial government's decision to cut funding to
rape relief centres across B.C.
The women's centre sent a
telegram last week to the attorney-
general protesting the government's
contract termination with the Coalition of B.C. Rape Centres society.
According to the letter, the centres
will not receive funds after Feb. 25.
Deputy attorney-general Richard
Vogel said in a letter to the society
Jan. 26 that funding was eliminated
because the society failed to provide
independent progress reports on a
local centre basis and did not allow
sufficient access to an independent
researcher hired by the government.
Jean Bennett, a women's centre
spokesperson said, "It is a
disgusting demonstration of the
Socred government's refusal to
treat violence against women as a
serious problem."
The government currently gives
$150,000 annually for distribution
to the four centres in Vancouver,
Terrace, Nanaimo and Victoria.
The women's centre telegram expressed concern about the termination of funding and the necessity of
respecting the society's confidential
files.
"We demand the province's decision be reconsidered immediately,"
read the telegram.
A Vancouver rape relief
spokesperson said, "We refused to
give the access they (the government) want to our confidential
files."
Lee Lakeman said the society
refused to answer two government
questionnaires, which dealt with
rape victims and the rape centres.
"The questionnaires led to profiles of rape victims, not information on how to stop rape," she said.
Lakeman said the government
wants individual progress reports
from each centre to determine
which centre was weakest each year.
She added the future existence of
the centres was in doubt.
"The women are very committed
but it takes money to operate this
place. We don't know what it will
mean," she said.

Candidates defeated in the Alma
Mater Society executive elections
dominated elections for student
council representatives held
Wednesday by the arts undergrad
society.
Arts students elected Jon Gates,
Margaret Copping and Charles
Menzies, from the progressive slate,
and Peter Goddard the only incumbent running in the race, to one year
terms of office.
Voter turnout was typical for the
faculty of 5,000 plus students. Only
310 eligible voters cast ballots.
Gates topped the council elections with 182 votes. Goddard polled 175, Menzies 162, and Copping
160. Unsuccessful candidates Sylvia
Berryman and Kent Westeberg
received 126 and 116 votes respectively.
In arts executive elections, Eva
Busza received 150 votes to defeat
Phil Kueber with 140. Next year's
vice president is Renee Comesotti
who topped Dale Kelm's 100 votes
by 37.
In an unprecedented move, election results were held 24 hours
before being released publicly.
Arts president Paul Yaskowich
said the results were held "so the
candidates were able to protest the
k*-z*y mw-mt « mm A
m» J.   .» * m «-.*.* _* *s»-»» T 1
election without knowing whether
they'd won or not, so their protests
weren't colored by grief or joy."
Two positions were filled by acclamation. Laura Lee is the new
secretary and Debbie Lotecki
becomes employment coordinator.
Five positions including treasurer
are still vacant. The positions are
coordinators for athletics,
academics, advertising and socials.
Newly elected reps pledged to
fight cutbacks, tuition increases,
and move the fight to Victoria.
Ubyssey declares
university-wide days
of peace, no classes
Next week is the time all good
journalists (and certain bad ones)
leave the newsroom for the first
time in weeks (nay, months) and
finally introduce themselves to their
professors and roommates.
What this means decoded is that
the finest rag west of Blanca, The
Ubyssey, will not publish Thursday
or Friday. But don't let it get you
down (or up), for we will resume
our torrid pace the following Tuesday. Understand? Good.    .

triguing framework for commenting on the empty romanticism of
Zack and Claire's lives — romantic,
melodramatic movies which
perpetuate myths about heterosexual relationships, films such as An
Affair to Remember and Roman
Holiday. Particularly impressive
and ingenuous is a glimpse of Cat
On a Hot Tin Roof on television. In
that adaption of Tennesse
Williams' play, Brick's homosexuality is underplayed, and the film
ends on a reconciliatory note, with
Paul Newman and Elizabeth Taylor
locked in an embrace. Sandler
wants to tell us that Zack's
heterosexuality is as false as Brick's,
but is perpetuated by conventions.
The fact that Making Love ends
happily is bound to please many
people; it goes with their positivistic
view of their world. By over-
compensating for negative
representations gays have received
in movies (e.g. The Detective),
Making Love ends up as a disservice
to its own aims. One can only hope
that future films with homosexual
characters will be more daring and
hard-hitting in their approaches.
Making Love is being billed as the
"controversial  love story  for the
'80s."
* » *
Taxi Zurn Klo is considerably
more daring than Making Love, but
it isn't a better film. This German-
made piece of cinematic exhibitions
is interesting during the first hour,
but it bogs down during the latter
half.
Taxi Zum Klo
Directed by Frank Ripploh
Playing at Denman Place
More daring because director
Frank Ripploh has had the guts to
film explicit gay sex scenes without
exploiting any of the participants.
When a film manages to present its
characters in revealing light without
undermining them as human beings, you can't help but applaud it.
The concerns that affect the
characters in Taxi Zum Klo affect
us. The fact that the characters are
homosexual should not matter at all
to anyone. Mingled with the sexually explicit scenes — including a
golden shower sequence — are
scenes of rueful humor and triviality
of existence.
Taxi Zum Klo is part fact, part
fiction; one could even go so far as
calling it docu-drama, for Ripploh
based the film on his own life (so
did Sandler for Making Love), and
the film includes Bernd Broaderup,
who is Ripploh's real-life lover.
Like any other couple, Frank, and
Bernd are learning to live with each

other but run into difficulties
because of Frank's promiscuity.
Frank likes cruising, but Bernd
prefers a domestic life.
Taxi does fail at the end because
there is nothing substantial to sustain the storyline. There are several
potentially intriguing thematic
threads running through the film —
including existentialism, sexual experimentation, domesticity and
freedom — but Ripploh doesn't
develop them into anything
fascinating.
What may offend some members
of the audience is Taxi Zum Klo's
unapologetic exhibitionism. But the
exhibition has a two-fold purpose.
First, it asserts a sexual freedom im-
Unapologetic
exhibitionism
portant to the cinema. But more importantly, the graphic exhibitionism
serves to indicate Frank's own narcissism.
Of the two films, Making Love
will probably leave you feeling
good, though for totally wrong
reasons. Taxi Zum Klo is more daring but finally taxing and even
slightly boring. Take the Taxi.

There was a time when UBC
board of governors chair Leslie
Peterson was minister of education
and Pat McGeer was on a committee to fight lack of government funding at UBC.
It's true. The evidence is in the
special collections display in Main
library. That was way back in '63.
But you can relive the funding
crises of the past in the display entitled Down But Not Out: The Cycle
of Financial Crisis at UBC.
Read how they resolved funding
problems in 1914, 1932 and 1963.
The display is open from 8:30 a.m.
to 5 p.m. Monday to Friday, and
from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday.

JHc2 relative
Einstein's theory of relativity says
that time warps as one moves either
east or west.
Although this theory wasn't proven until only a few years ago, UBC
students have been noticing the
phenomenen for decades, proving
again that UBC leads the way in
physics research.
Once one crosses that magical
boundary of Wesbrook, the time
around noon warps. Noon at UBC
is really 12:30 in the real world, and
12:30 in the real world is noon at
UBC. Got it? Good.

THE    UBYSSEY
Page 27
vista
PRISM . . . appearing at Van. East
The fucking beer bottle was staring me in the face. It was daring me
to go out, to have some fun, to ignore my schoolwork, and enjoy life
with gay abandon.
The room was filled with thick,
hazy smoke. I had just finished a
pack and a half of low tar
Carletons. I could feel the thumping in my head. Music, music, someone seemed to be shouting. Suddenly, it came to me: Why not look
at the best darn entertainment guide
in Vancouver? What else, but The
Ubyssey's Vista column. Bright, intelligent, informative and highly
personal.
Sure enough, there was plenty to
do.
The Vancouver academy of
music was presenting Menotti's
children's opera, Chip and his Dog
at the Music centre, Vanier Park.
Students $2, said the announcement, and I was on my way. Can't
get anything for $2 these days, ever
since the Pacific Cinematheque
decided to be commercial and
charge $3 for admission. Anyway,
the number to phone was 734-2301
for reservations.
The adrenalin, or something,
started to flow in me. My body was
one big ukelele. I felt like having a
Hearts and Flowers Special. Just
my luck, the Vancouver East
Cultural Centre was presenting such
a program on Sunday, Feb. 14 —

Valentine's Day — for only $7, with
$1 discount for students and seniors
(hey, I could even take my English
prof)- 2:30 p.m. and 9 p.m. it read,
and I made a mental note to go to
it.
Just then, I thought of the Wife
of Bath and what she meant to me.
I began to feel all romantic — after
all, Valentine's Day was coming
fast. The closest thing to the Wife
of Bath was a program for Vocal
and Instrumental Music of the Middle Ages and Early Renaissance by
the Toronto Consort, sponsored by
the Vancouver Society for early
music. Shit, it wasn't till next week,
on the 20th, at 8:30 p.m., at the
UBC music building recital hall. My
high IQ mind raced and I quickly
deduced why the Vista column
would run the announcement: no
Friday paper next week because of
the mid-term break.
