Cockburn targets
Mozambique terrorism
By Mary McAlister
Bruce Cockburn is well
known for the political messages
in his music, but he came to UBC
yesterday to talk not sing.
The Canadian folksinger
treated the packed SUB auditorium to a poetic account of his
recent experiences in war-torn
Mozambique, and told of a place on
the Indian Ocean bordering South
Africa where swimmers don't venture up the wide white beach for
fear of running into armed bandits.
The bandits, as they are called
by Mozambicans, are South African controlled rebels of the
Mozambique National Resistance
or Renamo, the Portuguese acronym.
Cockburn described the horrific war of destabilization that
South Africa is waging in Mozambique through Renamo.
"South Africa rubs itself up
and the evil genie Renamo squirts
out viral, evil, armies running
plague like across the land," he
said.
Cockburn said Mozambique
is strategically important because
it is a natural trade route to the
ocean for its land-locked neighbours. South Africa has tried to cut
the lines of transportation in an
effort to create regional economic
dependence on South African
routes, he said.
"I wonder how many truckers
in North America would face up to
the prospect of rocket attacks and
landmines on inter-city runs,"
Cockburn said.
He met a truck driver, Louis,
who continued to brave the roads
HEATHER JENKINS PHOTO
of Mozambique. "This guy has
been wounded twice on guarded
convoys which is the only way you
can travel by land" he said. Louis
had to endure 13 hours with a
bullet wound in the arm before he
reached a hospital.
Hospitals, schools, and local
government offices are favorite
targets of Renamo. Terror in tne
rural areas has forced many
people to leave their homes, to
leave the country, or to leave this
life, he said.
"It could be argued that those
who have died are better off than
those who have been left behind.
Especially the women who have
been robbed, raped, used as pack
animals, scarred with bayonets, or
had their feet blown off by land
mines. Or those whose ears, nose,
lips, or breast have been hacked
away as a warning to others who
are suspected informants of the
government," said Cockburn.
Cockburn's visit to UBC is
part of a three week cross- Canada
tour to raise public awareness
about the crisis in Mozambique.
The talk was sponsored by the
Alma Mater Society and the UBC
local committee ofthe World University Service of Canada.
WUSC is one of 19 Canadian
non-governmental organizations
who have joined together to form
Cooperation Canada Mozambique. Cocamo is working in the
Nampula province of Mozambique
to develop resources in agriculture, health, and education. Over
$600 was collected for COCAMO
projects by Cockburn's visit.
Cockburn described the response to his tour as very positive,
despite the fact that he is suffering
from a cold.
Cockburn said he hopes that
out of the popular trend toward
activism some people will stay
with it. "There is a lot of work that
needs to be done here in Canada.
Hopefully people will make the
connections between what's happening to the blacks in the bantus-
tans in South Africa and what's

By Katherine Monk
In the largest voter turnout
ever, UBC students decided to go
ahead with a new recreation facility to be built on Mclnnes Field.
The official results of last
week's referendum were 4597
"yes" votes to 3084 "no" votes, with
64 spoiled ballots. The total turn-
outof 7745 accountsfor 30 percent
of the student body.
The referendum ran without
any big snags according to chief
returning officer Chris Bendl.
"The only problem was that the
"no" campaign continued into the
polling, but there were irregularities on both sides," he said.
Bendl said that after each
day of polling, with the exception
of Tuesday, the "yes" side came out
ahead. And ofthe nineteen polling
stations, only three were heavily
"no" dominated—the Grad centre,
Computer Science, and MacMillan, home of forestry students.
Alma Mater Society president
Tim Bird said he was happy with
the voter turnout but was "surprised at the number of people who
said yes, because in the last week
there were so many bombs
dropped on the project."
Bird said he was afraid the
second issue of The Informant, the
October 28 issue of The Ubyssey,
the Graduate Students' newsletter, and the vocal "no" campaign
would lead to either a "no" vote
victory, or to no voting at all.
"But what all these controversial items within the campaign did
was bring out a high number of
voters," Bird said.
Chris Homes, Graduate Student Society house director,
agrees, but pointed out that the
"no" votes alone would have
reached quorum. For the referendum to pass, 2500 "yes" votes were
required.
"The money was a factor for
grad students," Homes said. "Alot
of undergraduate students still
live at home, while a quarter of all
grad students are raising their
own families."
Both Bird and Homes agree a
lot of work remains to be done in
order to ensure that what gets
built reflects students' expectations.
"If the University does not
respond to our wants, then there's
no point in applying our money to
the project—I know the University does not consider our priorities as their priorities," Bird said.
But before arm wrestling with
the administration for including
what students want, Bird said he
has to find out exactly what that is,
as the results ofthe priorities have
yet to be tabulated. "However, this
voter turnout has provided us with
the muscle we need to flex in front
ofthe University," said Bird.
Campbell takes
jabs at Turner
By Laura J. May
If elected, John Turner would
stick with the free trade deal according to Kim Campbell, Progressive Conservative candidate for
Vancouver centre.
"John Turner has no intention to scuttle the (free trade)
agreement," she told UBC students in an uneventful speech
Tuesday.
The agreement "is supported
by too many Liberals" for Turner
to scrap the deal if he should get
elected, said Campbell. Nor could
he simply re-negotiate a trade deal
with the U.S. president, she
added.
"The American president has
no authority to re-negotiate the
agreement—congress does," she
said.
Congress would probably not
consider a new free trade agreement since this agreement engendered the opposition of many
Congressmen and Senators,
Campbell said.
"It's an absolute myth that the
Americans welcomed this with
open arms," she said.
The free trade deal is necessary to ensure access to U.S. markets, according to Campbell. "The
status quo is unacceptable," she
said.
Presently, GATT regulates
trade between the U.S. and Canada, and the United States has
become cynical about GATT, she
said.
She also criticized the "adhoc'
relations between the U.S. and
Canada, and advocated the free
trade deal as a safeguard against
American protectionism.
Canada could effectively expand into the larger American
market. "Anyone who tells you we
can't compete has an unacceptable
and unforgiveable inferiority complex about Canada," she said.
Campbell added that cultural
industries are exempt from the
agreement with "two minor exceptions." Canadian culture would be
protected since "Americans have
enormous subsidies for arts" and
recognize the value of culture.

Veterans remember
the horrors of war
By Laurie McGuinness
"I don't know why I lived, and
why he died," is a question you
may hear coming out of any
veteran's mouth after the heat of
action, but George Fisk and David
Watchman, veterans of overseas
combat, are still amazed they are
here on Remembrance Day.
"You know it's funny
like, why I lived, I
don't know and why
he died, I don't know.
It was just a matter
of luck."
Fisk served as an aircraft
mechanic and saw most of the
European theatre and North Africa. Watchman was in the infantry, fought Franco in the Spanish
Civil War and then v/e%t on to
become a wrjreless operator on
Canadian Air Force submarine
patrols in the North Atlantic during World War 11.
Raised in Regina, Watchman
"rode the rods and followed the
harvest" as a* teenager during the
Depression. He worked harvesting crops as far west as Grande
Prairie, and from there it wasn't a
long way by boxcar to Vancouver.
Once on the coast, Watchijian got
involved, in the 'On to Ottawa
Trek* of 1935, a protest journey
made in boxcars by unemployed
men. But thelVek only got as far
as Regina, where the government
shut it down.
Continuing oa to Montreal,
Watchman joined a Canadian
battalion headed for Spain with
the International Brigades, who
were fighting Franco and the rebels.
Why would a young Canadian
want to go and fight a war-in Spain
in which he had no personal stake?
"Things were lousy. There didn't
seem to be anything else to do," he
says.
The Spanish rebels were receiving men and equipment from
Italy and Germany and Watchman has some vivid memories of
the Italians. "They had these
mobile armored cars. They weren't
as good as a tank, but they were
quicker...they ran the ass off us."
The loyalist forces were outgunned, and were losing the war.
Watchman was wounded three
times, the final time near the end
ofthe war in late 1938.
"I was in a hospital in Barcelona, and before Franco took over
the city, they (the hospital) told us,
go, and we made a run for the
French border," he says.

ans—"my sidekicks"—set off to
cover the 75 miles to France.
"We'd travel all night long,
and in the daytime dig a foxhole,
and hide. And wait to see if they
caught up with you. It took us two
weeks, but you weren't runnin'
steady, you couldn't because in the
daytime the planes, we'd be cut
off."
Watchman said he could time
when to make a move by which
way the machine gun fire was
sweeping. Wouldn't rebels have
shot you if they'd caught you?
Watchman looks surprised at the
question. "Hell yes."
What about your sidekicks?
"One of them didn't make it, he got
killed right at the border. You
know, shot, like." Watchman
pauses. "You know it's funny like,
why I lived, I don't know and why
he died, I don't know. It was just a
matter of luck."
"All of a sudden
there's this whole
string of bombs—he
wiped out quite a
number of aircraft..."
Watchman, as a result of his
injuries and subsequent blood
loss, suffered ammnesia and was
unable to remember his own
name. After some time in a French
camp, and then a British hospital,
he recovered sufficiently to be sent
home to Canada, where he convalesced for five months. It was then
that he joined the RCAF and spent
the Second World War patrolling
the North Atlantic in what he calls
comparartive tranquility.
When asked aboiit Hemingway and his role as a war correspondent in Spain, Watchman
turns sour. Hemingway painted
too rosy a picture of Franco, says
Watchman, who saw the rebel
leader as a greedy maniac.
Later in the 40's, Watchman
had a chance to confront Hemingway when the writer was on a
speaking tour in Saskatchewan. "I
spoiled his goddamn evening,"
said Watchman. "I asked him how
come he said he was liberal-
minded, but the liberal minded
don't go to Franco's big dinners,
and all this kind of horseshit, or
make joyous reports that Franco
was doing the right thing."
George Fisk graduated from
Kitsilano High School in 1939,
then enrolled in an aircraft mechanics course hoping to land a job
with Air Canada. When the country was pulled into the war, Fisk
joined the Air Force and was
trained on military machines. He
was briefly posted to the west
coast during the Japanese subma
rine scare, and shipped to England. From there Fisk witnessed
the world's first great aerial war.
"We ate a lot of bully
beef... It was awful
stuff, and that was
the staple of our diet.
"It was quite a sight to see
twenty or thirty aircraft lined up
at night, ready to go. There'd be a
flare, and off they'd go, climbing in
circles to gain height, hundreds of
planes sometimes, from all over
Yorkshire, and then, just like that,
they'd be gone. And it would go
really quiet."
Fisk recalls how the ground
crew would get attached to the
bomber crews. "If a mission was
washed out, change of target or
some reason, (the bomber crew)
would say, okay, let's go..down to
the pub and since they were allowed to own a car...we'd all climb
in the cars arid away we'd go down
to the pubs. We'd sit there all night
ahd have a tremendous time. The
riext mornirig we'd all be back at
the aircraft."
But he does not have fond
memories ofthe food. "We ate alot
of bully beef, which is like corned
beef. Anywity, the cooks would
punch a couple of holes in the bottom of these fifty pound cans of
bully beef, and let the fat drain out
overnight. It w^s awful stuff, and
that was the staple of our diet. We
were always hungry."
Fisk was strafed by one of the
first German jets, "^e.didn't know
where he'd tome from. We couldn't
even hear him. All of a sudden
there's this whole .tring o_
bombs—he wiped out quite a
number of aircraft and quite a
number pf men—never heard it."
While in Germany, Fisk saw
the burial pits of Belsen. He saw
underground shelters in Hamburg
boarded up, full of the corpses of
those who suffocated when the
firestorm overhead, started by
Allied bombs, consumed all the
oxygen.
Fisk remembers stepping out
of a dance to watch the bombing of
Hull. "The German bombers
dropped these big chandellier
flares. And as far as we were from
Hull (ten miles) we could see it. It
looked like a huge boiling pot."
Both Watchman and Fisk say
the same thing when asked what
Remembrance Day means to
them—it brings back memories of
friends that died. Fisk passing
cold winter nights in country pubs
with men who would die the next
day. Watchman running for his
life, his friend shot. dead.

Over 400 pro-lifers protested the opening of the Vancouver's first freestanding abortion clinic Friday. Betty Green, leader of Vancouver Right to
Life said she was there "to keep an eye on who was going in so we will have
a record of which of our local politicians would attend a party to celebrate
death. We are going to notify the public as to who came today, so that of
course none of our people would ever support them again."
Pro-choice rejoices
Celebrating B.C.'s first freestanding abortion clinic, Vancouver pro-choice supporters braved
the rain last Saturday in a show of
unity and perseverance.
Over 100 clinic supporters
were "washing away years of pain
and struggle and celebrating our
victory in the rain," said Hilda
Thomas, UBC professor and steering committee member for the
B.C. Coalition for Abortion Clinics.
Women carrying the banner
"Tories for Choice" joined the
crowd in chanting "Not the church,
not the state, women shall decide
their fate."
After the march, about 500
people gathered for a rally in the
Hotel Vancouver where two pro-
life protesters were present.
"This is not the end of our
struggle. (Canada) must have no
newlaws on abortion. (Today is)by
no means the end of the fight on
abortion in (this) province," said
Thomas.
Janet Vesterback, steering
committee member for the coalition, said all federal candidates
were invited to the rally. Johanna
den Hertog and Margaret Mitchell, NDP candidates for Vancouver
Centre and Vancouver East both
spoke at the rally. But Kim
Campbell, Conservative candidate for Vancouver Centre, did not
attend.
Anne Harvey, Vice President
of the B.C. Federation of Labour
celebrated the coalition's victory
over the government. "It's truly a
magnificent day when we can back
an opinionated, chauvinistic premier into a corner," she said.

When Les Miserables, the
largest theatrical production in Canada since Cats,
opens this spring, the playbill at
Toronto's Royal Alexandra Theatre will boast the name of UBC
theatre graduate Bruce Dow.
Dow has just finished performing with Theatre at Large in
A Thousand Miles of Railroad and
A Moose, a play where the elementary-school-age audience talked to
each other and threw things.
INTERVIEW
Bruce Dow
"I hate doing children's theatre," he says.
It is unlikely that Dow will
have a similar experience with Les
Miserables. Not only will the audience be more mature, they will
also be paying in excess of $40 for
tickets.
From Freddy Wood and Theatre at Large to the Royal Alex is a
big step and Dow is aware of the
opportunity afforded him. But he
is also able to keep the whole thing
in perspective.
"There is an element
of excitement in that.
When I do get on, my
job is not to be there
for the person who
isn't, but to be there
for the people who
are.
"Part of the reason for [performing in] this show is to see first
hand how a big cow like this is put
on."
Dow is one of a troupe of 30
cast into the "bovine masterpiece"
called Les Miserables. More than
1200 people auditioned for it
across the country.
He recalls his first audition
back in the spring. It was a Thursday afternoon, and he sang two
songs for the show's director, who
thanked him and asked if he could
be in Toronto four days later for a
callback. Plane tickets on short
notice are not cheap, but he considered it more of a lark than a serious chance at being cast into the
play.
But two months later, he received a phone message from his
mother when he got home from
school: "they called, you're in, but I
don't know doing what."
Dow called Toronto the following Monday and was told he'd
been cast as a male swing, a term

he didn't understand.
It will be Dow^ job to understudy six or seven male ensemble
members who could need replacements for two reasons. First, they
might get hit by a bus before or
during the show. For that reason,
Dow must be at the theatre each
night for the duration of the performance. As well, when a principal player is unable to perform,
their understudies come from the
ranks ofthe ensemble and must be
replaced.
In theory, Dow may never
appear on the Royal Alex stage but
in practice it is likely he will.
Althoughhe describes his role
as "sitting backstage," Dow also
acknowledges that he'll "never
know what [he's] doing."
First, they might get
hit by a bus before or
during the show. For
that reason, Dow
must be at the
theatre each night...
"There is an element of excitement in that. When I do get on, my
job is not to be there for the person
who isn't, but to be there for the
people who are. I need to be as
unobtrusive as possible."
Les Miserables is one of a
number of modern musicals that
Dow sees as representing a trend
towards Victorian melodramas.
They consist of "huge drama, costume, sets and minimal content.
People know the story before they
MANDEL NGAN PHOTO
get [to the theatre]." Dow sees this
as a negative progression, and
says that Phantom ofthe Opera or
Starlight Express or Cats have "an
eighth of the quality or content of
South Pacific."
"What's sad is [when you
have] brilliant, exciting theatre
and music in a [Stephen] Sondheim show, all the people talk
about is great costumes and
lights...There is a misconception
that entertainment of quality has
to be treated as a bitter pill, that it
is somehow exclusive."
It is this sort of entertainment
that Dow would ultimately like to
create as a director, not as an actor. "It's really rare that you get a
part that's really meaty. Some
actors can take time and spend
weeks creating a character, and
can make acting their lives. I have
a short attention span."
He admits that right now,
nobody "wants to hire a 25-year-
old director who looks 16." That is
why he continues to "hustle my
buns as an actor."
While in Toronto, Dow will
look for an agent and pursue other
work in addition to the play. He
leaves this month to find a place to
live when he moves in the new
year. In January, he will return to
begin rehearsals late in the
month. The show opens on March
9th and will likely play for a number of years. Dow's contract is for
one year.
Les Miserables is the kind of
show that can launch a young
actor's career, even an actor who
wants to be a director.

White heat storms
Gastown
by Chung Wong
An ownership change has
left the Classical Joint, re-
knowned for its high caliber of
performers, in financial
straights.
Andreas Nothinger, the commercially uncompromising architect who ran it for 15 years,
handed it over to his longtime
doorman, George Vreteaga. And
the rookie entrepreneur is now
facing financial obstacles to preserving one of Vancouver's finest
forums for artistic freedom.
Ron Burnette, a veteran jazz
musician, says the Joint has "always been on the [financial] borderline."
"It's just that Andreas did
everything. It was a one man operation. He worked a lot. He
spent all of his time, his
money...just to keep the place
going. It's the only place in town
where you can play anything you
want. There's no rules. It's the
only place where you can play
jazz," says Burnette.
The Joint seats 75 and needs
50 to 60 people a night to
survive. The $3 cover charge is
used to pay the band and the
food and beverages pay the other
bills. Vreteaga says the Joint
currently needs more patrons
and musicians to keep going.
Gavin Walker of CiTR has
been playing at the Joint every
Thursday since 1974.
"If you're a girl," Walker
says, "this is the only place in

outlet. It's a place to be for a
musician. There's no hype. No
managers to tell you to do (this
and that) for the audience. It's
just up to you...to make it all
happen."
The Joint is well known for
it's lack of a liquor license, and
owner Vreteaga will not even
consider getting a licence.
"This is a tough neighborhood. We would need two extra

doormen. Alcohol would also
spoil the atmosphere. People
come here to enjoy this type of
music. A few drunks would ruin
it," Vreteaga says.
One 11-year patron ofthe
Classical Joint emphasizes the
unique atmosphere: "This is stuff
you can't catch at a concert.
There's an intimate setting.
Heavyweight musicians are
aware ofthe place. They respect
it. Sometimes you get guys like
BB King and others who just pop
in at night. Radio stations,
record companies like CBS—they
all get their gear in here and
record the stuff live."
At a benefit to raise funds
for the Joint Sunday, Slick Jack
Velker, piano player for the X-
Waves, welcomed the audience to
"the last bohemian establishment in Vancouver.
"The flames still burn. It's
flickering and slowly dwindling
away into VanderZalmville. But
the only way to keep it all
happening is to keep digging it."
When asked about possibility of a government grant from
the Ministry of Culture, Ron
Burnette responded, "those kind
of grants just don't exist here.
The government here just doesn't
support that kind of stuff."
Musicians at the benefit
were hesitant to comment on the
Joint, preferring the music to
speak for itself. The night ended
with the Pete Macdonald Quintet
blowing the roof off the Joint
with a one minute final chord.

Shindig strikes again
And IVe lost my faith in the human race
by Greg Davis
I stumbled into the Railway
Club expecting to hear some
thrash band when the haunt-
ingly rich sounds of Mae Moore
warmed me up. Wait a minute!
She wasn't part of Shindig.
She's a rising songwriter who
has played with Barney Bentall
and Doug Bennett. Her performance that evening was a spur of
the moment thing and a very
pleasant surprise. But now on to
the arena of conflict...
It was Armageddon night at
Shindig this time, with three
acts depicting doom, destruction,
and social decay.
First into the fray was
Chadughi, who looked like Marty
Balin in a Confederate cap with
a Cincinatti-Bengals-issue
guitar. At first his edgy folk
drifted through the audience
without making much of a
presence. Alcohol consumption
was not conducive to his act; the
crowd should have been supplied
with that funny smelling green
stuff so that they would refrain
from excess talk and listen
quietly like zombies to this street
corner prophet singing songs of
dire warning.

audience. He managed to invoke
his wry musical Muse and
display a slightly Dylanesque
appeal in his songs.
Washing up next was The
Third Wave, opening with a
Middle-Eastern-sounding metal
song. Their tunes are a sophisticated type of hard rock, containing cynical comments on today's
world situation. The music and
lyrics presented an image of
agony, violence and war, but
their actual message was not
entirely clear. At times their skill
of mockery could be mistaken for
sincerity.
The song Free Love was the
most entertaining of the evening,
and the band was really tight;
perhaps too tight. If they
loosened up their act a bit their
wit might shine through their
serious music. Third Wave, eh?
They must be Alvin Toffler's
kids.
Free Water Knockout
rounded out the night with their
jumpy, funky, jangly guitar
sound. The lead vocalist added a
positive dimension to the group
by playing sax as well. A good
band but...Hell. I'm sick of
making REM comparisons.
In the sixties a whole wagon-
load of bands became flash in the
pans by adopting the Beatles'
style. In the eighties "you know
who" sets the pattern. And what
the heck, you like that kind of
music anyway, and who knows
when REM will come to town
again, so you may as well
content yourself with bands like
Free Water Knockout.
When the gods sent down
their final judgement, Free
Water Knockout were the ring
champs coming in first place.

Chadughi—no more liquor store
doorways for him. Third Wave

Caine and Kingsley shine
by Rick Hiebert
It's hard to root for a character who could
deduce your sexual quirks, family history and
the subject and length of your last History essay by
examining an old Kleenex pulled from your back
pocket.
FILM
Without A Clue
Oakridge
This is one reason why Without A Clue, with
its intriguing twist on the accepted Sherlock
Holmes legend, is such a delightful film.
The film begins with Holmes (Michael Caine)
and Dr. Watson (Ben Kingsley) foiling a Royal
Gallery robbery. After the bobbies
and public leave, Watson chews
Holmes out for "forgetting his
lines" while Holmes asks "What
did I do wrong?"
In this film, Watson is the
deductive genius who's hired out
of work actor Reginald Kincaid
to play the role of Holmes in
public in order to protect his
medical career. Kincaid/Holmes,
whose ego is as large as his
talent is small, admits he
"couldn't detect horse manure if
(he) stepped in it".
Watson, irate, tries to sack
Kincaid, but discovers that
nobody cares about "John
Watson, the Crime Doctor",
preferring instead the dashing Holmes.
Reluctantly, he agrees to reunite with
Holmes/Kincaid one last time to track
down Professor Moriarity, the fiend who
has stolen the Bank of England's five
pound note printing plates...
Without a Clue cleverly toys with the
legend ofthe invincible Holmes. There's
plenty of physical comedy and slapstick,
but the funniest parts are those which
debunk the Holmes legend.
Caine is excellent as the bumbling
Holmes. Besides his flair for physical
comedy, he gives Holmes an air of affable
stupidity and foppish hamminess. This
Holmes alludes to victims being "beaten to
death with a blunt excrement."
Kingsley is also excellent as the
patient, intelligent Watson. He has
amusing lines to play off Caine's bumbling
and gives his character the air of the
eternally ignored understudy. Kingsley
and Caine have a ball in this film, including the viewer in their fun.
The film has a very authentic feel and writers (Gary
Murphy and Larry Strawther)
create an intriguing set of characters. Jeffrey Jones (Ferris
Bueller's Day Off) is amusingly supercillious and
vacuous as Inspector
Lestrade. Lysette Anthony
(as Leslie) and Pat Keen (as
Holmes' landlady) also give
good performances.

Ski 'Birds get set
By Douglas Eastwood
Long before many of us turn
our thoughts to the slopes, the
UBC Ski 'Birds are hard in training in preparation for their first
set of races in January of 1989.
This year, over 30 are trying
out for the 12 spots which make up
the core alpine unit while 10 others are trying for spots on the
nordic team.
Those who make the team will
be competing on the American
circuit as part of the National
Collegiate Ski Association where,
for the last eight years, UBC has
been ranked in the top 10 amid
over 400 other college and university teams. Last year the 'Birds
competed in the Nationals ranked
an impressive fourth.
Despite the successes of last

year, new head coach Arne Lund,
who has coached several B.C. regional teams in the past, is not
intimidated and hopes not only to
match those achievements but to
exceed them. Because ofthe loss of
many veterans, this season is
expected to be a rebuilding one.
"The average age of last year's
team was 24. This year it will be
somewhere in the neighborhood of
19 to 20," says Lund.
Those trying out for spots on
the women's team include former
National Team member Ann
Taciuk, a veteran Downhiller and
Giant Slalom skier, Corey Henderson, a former Ontario Ski Team
member as well as two veterans of
the National Championships,
Kerri Wyse and Gillian Taylor.
On the men's side National
Team alumni Chris Mclver, re
turning Ski 'Bird team member
John Duffy, and newcomer Derek
Jazic are but some of the experienced hopefuls which also include
several hot prospects from the
interior. This year's men's nordic
team will include former World
Cup competitor Jonathan Lineen
and B.C. Team alumni Terry Delong.
Currently, both the nordic
and alpine teams are doing six to
eight hours a week of dryland and
weight training. The alpine team
works on anaerobic capacity with
such exercise as sprints, stair
climbs, push-ups and sit-ups. The
nordic team concentrates on
longer runs and hill climbs as well
as some roller-skiing. Twice
weekly downhill training sessions
for the alpine team could begin as
early as this week.
UBC takes national silver
By Darcy Vogel and Melanie Slade
Leaving the national title to
the University of Toronto Varsity
Blues, the Thunderbird women's
fieldhockey team pulled off a silver
medal weekend in the CIAU
championships at McGill University.
The 'Birds started the tournament vigorously with an 8-0 win
over the hosts, the McGill
Martlets, giving the 'Birds an
automatic berth to the semi-finals.
The second game was not
successful as the Birds lost 3-0 to
the U of Toronto. "The score was
not reflective of the game's play,"
said UBC coach Gail Wilson.
Toronto's three goals came late in
second half.
Wilson also felt the game was
a "blessing in disguise," as the
defeat, UBC's worst of the year,
fired them up for the semi-finals.
In the semi-final, UBC's
strong defense brought them to a
1-0 win over York University and
Wilson was ecstatic with the play
of the team. "This was a perfect
game for us," she said.
In the other semi-final
match, the top-ranked University
of Victoria was downed by U of T 2-
1.
The final game started slowly
for UBC resulting in an early
Toronto goal on a penalty corner.
"The kids are not used to coming
from behind", said Wilson in reference to the weak start UBC displayed.
In addition Wilson also took
some of the blame for their performance: "I implemented a stringent marking system for the final.
The result was that even when we
had the ball we were reluctant to
move to offence."
Although the 'Birds managed
to put pressure on the U of T defence, they were unable to capitalize on their scoring opportunities.
Despite UBC's domination of the
last 20 minutes of the game, the
Blues held on to their one goal lead
to capture the CIAU title.
Wilson was philosophical in
summing up the defeat: "The University of Toronto has a strong
hockey team, the only team better
than us this weekend."
Four UBC players were recognized as All-Canadians at the
Thursday's CIAU Banquet in
Montreal. Jennifer Vanstone and
Melanie Slade were named to the
first team and Penny Cooper and
Laura Farres were named to the
second. Melanie Slade and Penny
Cooper were also selected to the
Tournament All-star team.
The T-Birds finished their
intercollegiate season with a silver medal and a record of 12 wins,
3 losses and 1 tie - scoring 37 goals
and allowing only 5 against. The
'Birds now return to their Vancouver league season which will take
them through to April, when the
women leave for a European tour.

November 9,1988 SPORTS BRIEFS
:
RUGBY
The UBC varsity rugby team
played a solid game Saturday in a
20-0 romp over the visiting Old
Puget Sound in a muddy contest at
Thunderbird stadium.
Old Puget Sound hails from
the Seattle area and boasts a
couple of U.S. national team
members on the squad. But the
yanks were no match for the more
aggressive T-Birds who controlled
the game throughout.
The match grew physical in
the dying moments as the Americans attempted to get on the scoreboard but the UBC defence held
and Old Puget Sound headed
south empty handed.
The men's hockey team split a
pair of weekend games in Edmonton against the University of Alberta. The 'Birds lost 6-4 Friday
night in a close checking game but
stormed back Saturday to take a
10-9 overtime thriller.
UBC tied the score late in the
game while their goalie was pulled
and scored the winner with just
over one minute to play in overtime. It was Alberta's first loss of
the year.
UBC received bad news on
Friday when it was learned that
centre Mike Ikeda will be lost to
the team for an indeterminate
time after injuring his knee during
the game.
On a positive note, UBC's
Grant Delcourt was named Canada West player of the week after
a five-goal and two-assist weekend.
UBC's next game is 7:30 Friday at Thunderbird arena against
the University of Manitoba Bisons. Manitoba holds third place
in the standings, two points up on
UBC.
BASKETBALL
The UBC men's basketball
team returned from their California road trip a little wiser after
suffering a pair of losses to drop to
a 3-2 exhibition record this season.
The Basketbirds dropped
their first game 64-59 to Fresno
Pacific in overtime. Saturday they
lost to Cal State Northridge 89-64.
The men's Basketbirds are off
this weekend to Edmonton where
they will compete in the Golden
Bears tournament.
The women are also in action
this weekend travelling to the
University of Manitoba invitational in Winnipeg.
SOCCER
UBC will play host to the
Canadian national soccer championships this weekend for both
women and men. The games start
Thursday and continue through
Sunday and will feature four
women's and five men's teams.
Alberta, Queens, Concordia,
and Acadia will fight it out in the
women's division while Alberta,
Western, Toronto, McGill, and St.
Mary's will compete for the men's
crown.

Disappoint
By Joe Altwasser
The UBC women's and
men's cross-country team ended
the 1988 season with fourth and
fifth place finishes respectively
at the Canadian Nationals this
weekend.
The result was "slightly
disappointing," said coach
Merek Jedrzejek, as he had
hoped to bring a medal home
from Quebec City.
"Our team is better than
the placing," said Jedrzejek,
adding that he was still happy
that both the women and the
men were able to gain valuable
experience by competing in the
Nationals.
Jedrzejek felt the 'Birds
would have fared better if the
course and race conditions were
different. The course was very
hilly and there was al so a strong
wind which didn't favour us," he
said.
The top UBC men's result
was Rob Lonergan who came in
eighth while Teresa Rind finished fourteenth to place the
UBC women.
The Manitoba Bisons, who
finished the competition with 35
points, won the overall men's
competition. Western took the
silver with the University of
Toronto finishing third.
The women's crown was
captured by Western with
Toronto coming in second and
Dalhousie third.

What Is TM?
TM is a simple, natural, easily-learned mental
technique that is practiced for 15 to 20
minutes twice daily sitting comfortably in a
chair with eyes closed. During TM, the mind
enjoys a settled state of inner wakefulness,
pure consciousness, while the body gains a
unique state of deep rest. The TM program,
founded 30 years ago by Maharishi Mahesh
Yogi, is a practical technique. It does not require any specific beliefs or lifestyle.
Eighteen Years of Research
More than 350 scientific studies conducted in
the past 18 years at 160 independent research
institutions have shown that TM benefits all
areas of life: mind, body, behavior, and environment.

to what?
Students voted in favour ofthe recreation facility. Congratulations are in order not only for
the students who voted, but for everyone who
took the time out of their mid-term schedule to
campaign on both sides of the fence.
But what have we done? Some say we have
contributed to our own legacy of student initiative by building our own buildings.
The University administration was going to
build the recreation facility no matter what the
students did. It was in the works long ago, and
was never moved. The administration, in
grudging acknowledgement of their own role,
realized they had to provide adequate facilities—they just wanted to take their time, and
build more research buildings while students
squirmed like sardines in a sweaty tin.
What the referendum and student action
has done is boost the facility further up on the
priority list. But the administration is not stupid, and they gave us the priority at a price—in
the neighbourhood of seven million dollars. In
effect, we are paying for something the University was going to build anyway.
■'' Whether our financial contribution has a
say in how the facility will look, remains to be
seen. But judging on past decisions, and the
hack and slash attitude of the Board of Governors when it comes to money, the student voice
will most likely be squelched—as it always is—
in favour of a research patent. UBC vice-president K.D Srivastava, the link between the students and the administration, says it would be
"naive" for the AMS to think that students will
control the facility.
Srivastava also says students should be
proud to contribute to this tradition of student
initiative. But given the nature of provincial
commitments to education, it is more a question
of carrying on the government's legacy of under-
funding, and student martyrs, rather than
something praiseworthy.

Residents of
Gage demand
parking spots
As most people are well
aware, a parkade is presently being erected next to
Gage Residence. John
Smithman, Director of Traffic and Security, is now contemplating how to allocate
the thousand new parking
spots. Thus far, staff and
visitors are the only groups
guaranteed parking. The
remainder of the spots will
go to the student body but
the eligible candidates have
not yet been determined.
It has always been
thought that a large portion
ofthe spots to be given to the
student body were to be set
aside for Gage residents.
Now John Smithman is seriously contemplating allocating spots by way of a lottery with residents having
no advantage over other
students. This proposal
seems ludicrous in light of
the parking problem facing
Gage students.
At present there are
some 362 parking spots surrounding Gage. There are
also some 350 people on the
waiting list for these parking spots, which is to be
expected considering there
are over 1700 residents.
People without a parking spot must park their car
in B-lot, which is an obvious
safety hazard.
To begin with, B-lot
happens to be close to a kilometer from Gage. Anytime a
resident has to walk to or
from B-lot at night, that
person faces a risk of physical harm. Just think of how
dark and quiet Wesbrook
Mall is late at night and how
many rapes or attempted
rapes have occurred around
the residences on campus in
recent years. This is the
reason why the Gage Community Council passed a
motion last year to give the
first 100 Gage parking spots
to women.
Another safety concern
is that vehicles parked in B-
lot overnight are easy targets for theft and vandal-

ism. I can think of many
students, including myself,
who have had articles stolen
from their cars.
Even without considering the safety element, it is
still a terrible inconvenience to have to park in B-
lot. Think of the number of
times a person uses his/her
car to get groceries, visit
friends, etc.... Now imagine
having your driveway located ten blocks from where
you live. Quite inconvenient, isn't it?
John Smithman, I hope
you realize that Gage residents are in greater need of
the parking spots than commuting students, except
perhaps the disabled.

Homosexuals
face daily
discrimination
Why shouldn't homosexuals seek publicity? Every day they are constantly
bombarded with heterosexual images and ideals. And
who exactly gets to decide
who "accepts" whom? We
might as well dump the
UBC PCs for encouraging
conservatism—behavior
considered highly abnormal
in some circles.
Gays and lesbians are
not treated fairly in this
society: they are isolated,
excluded, subjected to ridicule and discriminated
against. When a gay or lesbian couple can't even hold
hands in public without the
risk of verbal or physical
abuse there is indeed a "difference between a homosexual and your average
heterosexual guy."
The Gay Olympic
Games can help to cut away
at the stereotypes, the misinformation and self-righteous hostility that informs
our homophobic society.
Exactly because gays and
lesbians are "discouraged,"
"not allowed" to be visible
and proud, do we—straights
and gays alike—need this
kind of event. Besides, it
just might be fun.
Take a long hard look at
your own "missionary zeal."

A halo that
needs to be
polished
Let me just say how refreshing it is to see that lily
white purity is still alive in
today's youth. Antoinette
Boquiren's letter of Oct. 28,
assailing the senseless (not
to mention time wasting)
antics of some rowdy, childish, immoral, heartless,
imbecilic, intoxicated, cowardly and generally despicable engineers, should
stand as a rallying call to all
other impish individuals
who, like Miss Boquiren,
undoubtedly spent their formative years accompanying
Dorothy and Toto along the
Yellow Brick Road.
Miss Boquiren was
right to point out that the
behavior of the engineers
was, well, common. It was
certainly well below the
level of decorum befitting
any UBC student worthy of
their letter sweater.
So, shame on you rowdy
engineers for sullying the
good reputation of your
more sensible peers in Applied Science. Shame on
your "display of public
drunkenness." Shame, too,
on your waste of ninety
minutes (don't you ever
study?). And most of all,
double shame on you for
causing Miss Borquiren
such moral indignation. It's
just lucky for you that she
has a sufficiently broad perspective on human rights to
grant you the precious liberty to engage in water-
fighting at all; a less permissive person might consider such an activity untenable.
I must also applaud
Miss Boquiren's concern for
the rights of others. If activities the likes of which you
cowards have reduced yourselves to were left uncen-
sured, they would surely
lead us down a path of moral
decay, nay, anarchy.
I only hope that after
giving the chastisement of
Miss Antionette Boquiren
the careful reflection that it
deserves, that each of you
"primitive hooligans" can
appreciate not only the
magnitude of your mistakes, but also the goodness
and purity that awaits you if
you renounce your former
ways.
As for you, Miss Antoinette Boquiren, I suggest
you choose an uplifting career in accounting.

Leave it alone

There it stands in majesty among the grass with

There it stands representing the pinnacle of arrogance. It is their Ozyman-

During the past couple
of weeks the structure of
which I speak situated near
the Engineering buildings
seems to be having a difficult time remaining "true"
to its colors. This monument
of self-proclaimed superiority, which rules the Main
Mall like a king, is constantly being ravaged by
warrior students who repaint it with their victorious
colors.
Now Vandals! Why
such a display of neobar-
barianism? If a pie-shaped
concrete object brazen with
crimson E's infuriates you
so much, why not surpass
displays of egotism?
To destroy exposes only
jealousy; but to surpass

Geer injured in tanking
By Robin Muehlebach
With five stitches and a three
inch cut in his foot, first year
Engineering student Dean Dougherty has something to be mad
about. The injuries were a result of
a group of fellow geers throwing
him into memorial pond against
his will last Wednesday.
Doherty said he is annoyed
because he missed an important
lab. Also, getting around campus
is extremely difficult for him due
to the injured foot, he said. "In
order to get from my dorm to my
classes, I have to get the campus
patrol to give me a ride every
morning and afternoon."
"The fact that I was tanked
against my will gives me a reason
to be angry at the people who did
this to me," Doherty said. He does
not resent tanking itself, "but
when people get hurt in the process it is time to re-assess this initiation process."
A member of the Engineers
Undergraduate Society who
wanted to remain anonymous,
said the incident can probably be
blamed on anti-engineering
groups who dump broken glass
and other dangerous materials
into the pond.
She also stated that "itis standard procedure that the pond is
checked for broken glass before
someone is tanked."
The associate dean of Applied
Science said he "does not support
students getting tanked against
their will," and added that if the
dean's office receives any complaints, he will gladly investigate
the matter.

Cockburn draws energy to
continue his solidarity work
from a personal concept of God,
but also from the people themselves.
"The people of Mozambique are very hopeful. You
can't sit around and be cynical
when the people who are actually facing all the problems are
hopeful and positive."
When asked how a pacifist
justifies the use of armed
struggle in places like southern
Africa, Cockburn replied, "I
never said I was a pacifist."
"I was mostly ignorant. I
was a Canadian who grew up,
just like the rest of you, in a non-
threatening situation. Under
those conditions it's easy to
deplore violence."
"I don't think violence is
the only solution but sometimes
it becomes inevitable—it's like
gravity," he said.
"When your kids are dying
because the social situation is
preventing them from eating,
you get angry. Then ifyou raise
your voice against that system
and someone comes along and
burns your house down or kills
you, it doesn't take long to cross
the threshold of violence," said
Cockburn.
Cockburn has a new album
coming out in January that focuses, in part, on a trip he took
to Nepal. The album was recorded before his trip to
Mozambique but the poetic
style of his speech yesterday,
strongly suggests the lyrics of
songs in the making.

Native spirit stirs students
By Greg Davis
Native Awareness Week
kicked off on spiritual footing
Monday with an opening ceremony full of prayer and shared
knowledge.
Focussing on the spiritual
aspects of Native life, speakers in
SUB Auditorium explained the
significance of Native Awareness
Week itself.
"We want to create more
awareness of native people on
campus," said Phillip Stewart,
president of the Native Indian
Student Union, which sponsors
the events. "Native students are in
the shadows; we want them to be
in the light of this country," he
said.
Prayers addressed to the
Creator were intended to dispel
the negative side of the Native
image and foster respect both
within and outside of the Native
community.
Buffalo Child, a member of
the Cree nation and the Sweat
Lodge Society, spoke of life as a
spiritual journey, and how Native
philosophy strives to overcome a
narrow perception of reality.
"We are so closely linked to
the spiritual world it's incredible,
but we are blindedby material life.
When we dream, we come closer to
the spiritual world," said Buffalo
Child.
Yvonne Dunlop of the Anderson Lake band made a presentation of the Medicine Wheel, or the
Wheel of Life, a pattern that depicts the entire universe in its
scope.
The pattern's central concept
is ofthe four directions, which also
stand for the four sides of a human, and for the four races of
humanity; red, yellow, black and
white. Pour is the fundamental
sacred number in Native belief.
At the centre of the wheel is a
blue cloth depicting Father Sky,
and a green cloth representing
Mother Earth. All parts of the
wheel are related, indicative ofthe
Natives' holistic view of life.
"We are part of the universe
like plants, animals, and other
nations. From the centre all spiritual beings derive their strength,"
said Dunlop.
The ceremony finished on an
emotional level with prayers and
spiritual songs. Throughout the
week more forums and events on
campus will cover education, cultural and contemporary native
issues.

WHO?
Who do you want to govern Canada?
That's a serious question. On November 21,
Canadians will answer.
Brian Mulroney and the Progressive Conservative government understand that the world
around us is changing, and that our challenge
is to manage global change to Canada's
benefit. Since 1984, the P.C. government
has put Canada on a solid footing.
Who has more at stake than Canada's
youth?
Before you vote, consider the facts.
LEADERSHIP
Since the P.C. Government was elected, the
youth unemployment rate has fallen from
18.3% to 12.2%. This progress must continue.
COURAGE
The P.C. government has led the western
world in taking a firm stand against the
Apartheid regime in South Africa.
VISION
The P.C. government has produced Canada's
first Environmental Protection Act, which
carries harsh penalties for polluters.
These are some of the issues which concern
young Canadians. In four years, Brian
Mulroney and his government have made
great progress. Support the P.C. government,
and the progress will continue.
Who should we elect?
The P.C. Government.
