Vol. LXV, No. 6
Vancouver, B.C. Friday, October 1,1982
"The photographs in the August issue of
Penthouse displayed women bound up in
chains. One photograph showed the top half
of a woman's body in a meat grinder. It was
hideous. I felt really disgusted. Every time I
turn around there are those magazines staring
me right in the face."
Angered by the objectification of women
in pornographic magazines, Simon Fraser
University student Laurie White is fighting to
have pornography removed from the SFU
bookstore and concession stands. The
university encourages a negative attitude
toward women by selling pornography on
campus, she says.
"Pornography has no place in a university
bookstore because it is contrary to the ideals
of the university," she says. "It demeans and
degrades women. Women are exploited. Pornography reminds me that to most of the
population I'm nothing but a sexual object."
White began her campaign in
July, after being confronted by Penthouse
and Playboy when she went into the university bookstore to buy a magazine on
photography. She and a friend headed for
the campus women's centre to find out more
about pornography, passing a Canadian National Institute for the Blind concession stand
on the way.
"To our great surprise, they had seven
pornographic magazines on display," says
White. "We told the man we objected to pornography being displayed and sold on our
campus. CNIB was very cooperative. As
soon as they understood that students were
objecting to it they removed it."
White has not been quite as successful in
dealing with SFU bookstore manager and
head librarian Ted Dobbs. "He wasn't very
receptive to our complaint. His basic line was
that we were asking him to participate in censorship. We pointed out to him that they
practise censorship every day.
"At the end of the summer, the SFU
bookstore received a shipment of the book
The Olson Murders. They were removed
from the shelf an hour later because they
were in bad taste. We asked them to do the
same with other 'tasteless' stuff," White
Despite cries of censorship from the
university administration and other students,
White has many supporters. A motion asking that pornography be removed from campus has been passed by the student council,
the student society staff union, and the
teaching support staff union. The group has
also received numerous letters of support
from the community.
The issue has reached SFU president
George Pedersen, who seems unwilling to
make a judgment on the degrading image of
women in pornography.
In a Sept.  10 letter to White, Pedersen
Fighting pornography
The assault on sexism
and male domination
stated, "I have no intention of assuming the
role of SFU censor."
Despite Pedersen's reaction, white plans to
continue to fight for the removal of pornography from the campus. "It's become a
really important issue. We haven't dropped
the issue and we won't," she says.
At UBC, Josephine Evans, an education
instructor, has been the most vocal person
about pornography sold on campus. She
took up the issue on her first day at the university when she found herself unexpectedly
facing a display of pornographic magazines
in the campus bookstore.
"I felt very personally degraded when I
saw women's bodies packaged and displayed
to please men. It was a disappointment to be
in a university that sells stuff which degrades
50 per cent of the human race," she says.
Evans compares the depiction of women in
pornographic magazines to the treatment of
colored races by white men. "It took a while
for whites to understand racism. Plenty of
men don't understand how it feels to be at
the receiving end of sexism. It's about time
men took women's word for it.
"You're either for the degradation of half
the human race or you're not. It's time to
take a stand. I think removing the pornography will show that this university does respect
women," Evans says.
John Hedgecock, manager of UBC's
bookstore, disagrees with Evan's perception
of pornography. "What is obscene to one
person is not to another," he says. "Until
somebody can define what pornography is, I
don't know if I've got any in the bookstore."
Regardless of its portrayal of women,
removing pornography from the bookstore
constitutes censorship, Hedgecock says.
"The moment someone says 'I don't think
you should read that, it's censorship. The last
place that should occur is on a university
campus. The university is one place where
things ought to be read and judged."
Hedgecock says he never reads pornography, and declines comment on how
pornography exploits women. "I don't make
a judgment on that," he says.
One issue of Penthouse, sold in the UBC
bookstore, ran an article entitled "She's
Bound to Adore You." The theme of the ar
ticle was that modern "liberated" women
like to be tied up and raped. Hedgecock
declines comment on the depiction of women
in this particular issue. "I don't read them so
I don't know if that happens to be there. I am
told that thee are a lot of serious articles in
Playboy. I'm totally opposed to censorship
and will be to the day I retire," he says.
Head UBC librarian Tony Jeffreys shares
Hedgecock's views on the value of Playboy.
The library subscribes to Playboy, which is
available in the special collection stacks. "I
would hardly call that (Playboy) pornographic," Jeffreys says. "We are dealing
with a magazine that has other uses. Playboy
is regarded as having some literary merit. If a
library this size begins to censor material
useful to scholars, then its function tends to
The Thunderbird shop in SUB sells in total
150 copies of Playboy, Playgirl and Penthouse a month, comparable to the number
of Scientific American magazines sold in the
"We also sell dirty sort of fun things,"
shop manager Sally Alston says. "We've got
quite a demand." Alston says the best selling
book in the store is a join the dots "dirty fun
book." The store has sold more than 500
copies of the book in two years.
Alston says she cannot make a judgement
on the image of women conveyed by pornographic magazines. "It's not my position
to say. If they sell, I give the people what they
want. More people buy them than
University campuses are not the only
places in town where the battle against pornography is being fought. In August the Vancouver East Cinema cancelled a midnight
series of pornographic movies after about
40 people demonstrated outside the
"It did come as a surprise," manager Al
Patel says. "We thought we'd try showing
pornographic movies and see if people came.
When we saw that there were people out
there who didn't want these things, we decided we didn't want any problems. With that in
mind we cancelled the whole show."
Patel says he is still happy with his decision, even though the theatre has lost
money. "There are more important things
than money. What's money when it comes to
principles?" he asks.
"The film was stopped in the interest .of
the community. Their feelings were that these
films exploit women. Maybe it does. We pursued that angle purely from a business angle,
and not with the intention of exploiting
"The outcome was important. We did get
letters in support that such things were stopped. It definitely gave us a good feeling," he
says. Page 2

Student jobs go begging
Student demand for jobs created
under a work study program to aid
the financially needy has been much
lower than expected by the financial
awards office, a UBC awards officer said Thursday.
"We estimated we would have
had to close applications two weeks
into the school year, but the demand hasn't been what we first anticipated," said awards officer
Sheila Summers.
Of 900 eligible candidates, identified by their B.C. student
assistance applications, only 400
have applied for authorization to
apply for any of the 600 possible
jobs, and so far only 120 people are
working, said Pat Hagerman of
UBC's Canada Employment centre.
"Times are tough,"  said Sum
mers. "I would have thought
students would have been beating
down the door."
Under the program students
work mostly in career oriented jobs,
with placement being determined by
their qualifications and financial
need. Each job pays anywhere from
$1,000 to $2,500 per year.
Only students who need supplementary student aid in addition
to their B.C. student assistance program funding or students facing
unusual financial burdens are eligible for the program.
The work study program has increased funding this year, allowing
for the creation of more jobs then
in previous years. But there are also
more students eligible for the program then there had been in
previous    years,    said    Summers.
Funds totalling $410,000 have
been made available for the creation of jobs, funded jointly by the
university and the provincial
"If anything it would appear it
would be jobs that go unfilled
rather than students that go without
jobs" said Hagerman.
But if all those students eligible
for the program apply the allocated
funds will be quickly used up.

UBC budget cut $7 million
UBC learned Wednesday it must
cut $7.2 million from its current
operating budget.
The cut is UBC's portion of a $12
million rollback in B.C. university
budgets that university minister Pat
McGeer announced in August as
part of the provincial restraint program.
The cuts were announced
Wednesday by University Council
of B.C. chair Bill Gibson. UCBC,
an intermediary body between
B.C.'s three universities and the
university ministry, had to decide
each university's share of the cut.
Last year the university was forced to impose $7 million in cuts after
an unexpected 18 per cent faculty
wage settlement was imposed under
binding arbitration.
"Short of being a pressure group
to the government, there is nothing
we can do," UCBC chair Bill Gibson said Thursday.
Gibson said the chances of the
cuts being reduced is slim because
of the severity of the present
economic situation. "This year is
the most critical for university funding since 1932," he said.
In a meeting with students, faculty and alumni Thursday, UCBC officials discussed ways in which the
university's public image could be
improved to raise more funds. The
consensus arrived at in the meeting
was that a full-scale media blitz
must take place, UBC Alma Mater
society president Dave Frank said
"Education is an investment with
a good return," said Gibson.
Frank    agreed   that   education
Excess fees
give surplus
"Ludicrous" fall enrolment
predictions by the university administration have given UBC an additional $863,000 in unallocated
surplus funds, Alma Mater Society
president Dave Frank said Thursday.
Calculations by The Ubyssey
show the administration has
$1,733,000 currently unallocated
and may have more than $2 million
in unappropriated operating budget
Dave Dale, UBC student board
of governors member, said Wednesday the surplus funds held by UBC
should be used to boost student aid
grants. Currently student aid grants
are in limbo because the Social
Credit cabinet has not decided how
much money will be available for
this year's program.
Frank said administration predictions during the summer — after an
embarrassing $7 million surplus was
discovered — that an enrolment
drop could cost the university up to
$900,000 in lost tuition fee revenue
were ludicrous because the administration's own institute of
analysis and planning was projecting enrolment increases for
According to officials in the UBC
registrar's office, enrolment at the
university could be up by as much
as 1,000 students this year.
Frank said the administration
knew the institute's enrolment pro
jections have always been accurate
in past years and had no reason to
expect an enrolment drop this year.
"It's always been ludicrous (the
projected enrolment drop) to me,
considering UBC has projected an
increase in enrolment for ihe past
eight months," Frank said.
At the root of the budgeting controversy is a one-time $7 million
operating budget surplus UBC
"found" in the summer. The
surplus caused the university a major public relations headache as
newspapers and the provincial
government criticized the UBC administration's failure to follow
good budgeting procedures.
While UBC administrators claimed it was not possible to anticipate
the surplus, which they say came
about because of shrewd investment
policies and high interest rates,
UBC's student council wrote to the
board of governors expressing their
disbelief in the administration's
budgeting abilities.
"We wish to question to advisability of retaining as chief executive and administrative officers
individuals who seem to have
shown themselves capable of
manipulating the university's financial affairs to support their conclusions," student council said while
indicating its lack of confidence in
the Doug Kenny administration.
In addition to the $863,000 tui-

More grant money?
Despite earlier conflicting reports
from the universities ministry, a
education ministry spokesperson
has said that they are trying to find
more money to allocate for student
"We're digging around for more
money for student aid and
reorganizing our priorities which is
causing the slight delay in grants"
said Eric DeBiasio, an assistant to
education minister Bill Vander
"There weren't as many student
jobs this summer which created a
larger need for student aid" said
University ministry program
director Dean Goard said previously the cabinet is looking at two
alternatives for allocating grants.
Either funds will be increased by
reducing the universities' operating
budget or the current allocation will
be rationed among applicants.
When questioned in the
legislature about the delays in student  assistance  cheques,   Vander
should be a high priority. "Universities are the wrong area to cut back
on because directly and indirectly,
they add a lot to the economy of the
"You can't put much blame on
UCBC (for the cuts), they're just
being used as a buffer by the (Social
Credit) cabinet," he said.
Administration vice president
Michael Shaw is unsure how the
budget cut will be compensated for.
"It's impossible to say anything
other than quite clearly further
restraint of this kind makes things
difficult," said Shaw. "It's very unfortunate that circumstances are
such that this (the budget cut) had
to be done."
Shaw was also unable to predict
the effects of the budget cut on a
proposed tuition fee freeze for next
year. The compensation stabilization    commissioner   is   currently
reviewing the faculty's wage settlement to determine if it is within
government guidelines.
"I can't comment on what the
commissioner will do, there are no
definitive answers at the moment,"
Shaw said.
Shaw added UCBC should not be
blamed for the budget cut in light of
their funding woes. "I guess they've
looked at the problems and used
their best judgement."

Health grants may not exist
Zalm had no direct answer.
"The grant program has been announced," he said.
Vancouver Centre MLA Gary
Lauk said Vander Zalm didn't explain why the students hadn't
received their money.
The ambiguous reply to the question was probably due to lack of
communication between Lauk and
Vander   Zalm, said DeBiasio.
Many health science students will
not get expected bursaries and have
not been told.
"They are still not officially
notified they will not receive health
service bursaries," said Dan
Worsley, UBC assistant awards
director Thursday.
Forty health science students,
who were assessed as needing
funds, will not receive a bursary.
Together, they need an additional
$60,700, said Worsley.
But no more money is available.
The health science bursary program
of $250,000 dollars ran out in mid-
July, Worsley said.
Students who applied after funds
ran out won't get aid regardless of
need, he said.

psychology are affected, Worsley

said. Applications approved early

Awards offices did not know bursaries would be awarded to the first
applications. Therefore, some offices processed applications later,
creating    inequality    between    in
stitutes, Worsley said.
He said others did not receive
bursaries because papers were not
processed correctly, due to applicant errors. Also, students who are
planning to still apply for the bursary are out of luck, he said.
Worsley said more applications
were received this year asking for
more money than in the past. He
said low student employment,
parental money shortages and increasing costs were to blame.

Women face hurdles
Bank won't ripoff signs
"The Bank of Montreal made over $100 million profit last year but can't
afford to process student loans here."
So read posters outside UBC's Bank of Montreal branch Thursday.
"I didn't even notice them and I just got back from lunch," said SUB
branch Manager Stuart Clark Thursday afternoon.
The bank moved student loan processing to Pender and Granville last
year after it became "uneconomical" to process them at UBC.
The bank will not process them at UBC since "last year the Alma Mater
Society charged rent," according to Clark.
But UBC's mad posterer will likely continue their escapades. Clark is not
concerned about the posters and will let them stay up.
Women have to work twice as
hard as men to prove themselves in
the field of commerce, an articling
chartered accountant said Thursday.
"The chances for advancement
are there," said Tessa Marks, one
of five women panelists speaking on
women and commerce in Brock hall
Panelist Barbara Shantz confirmed Mark's statement. "There are
equal chances for hierarchical advancement if you (women) go after
it," she said.
Women are reluctant to name
salary figures, Shantz said. "Consequently women will undervalue
themselves by making lower salary
demands than men, which are
quickly accepted. This reinforces
female salary inequalities."
Joan   Harrison,   Bentall   group
organizational development
manager, said there was an exception to this rule. In accounting,
standard salaries are paid irregardless of gender, she said.
Harrison said if women face sexual discrimination it is usually from
older men.
"It's not the young people with
these attitudes — it's older people,"
she said. Because it is the older
generation in business that makes
policy decisions, these attitudes are
not easily changed, or their
behavior altered, Harrison said.
"We'll see those attitudes changing in a few years," said Marks.
"Soon companies will have to look
at maternity leave programs."
Presently women in commerce
have difficulty re-entering the work
force after having children. "Older
men just don't realize the changes
that have occured, she said. Page 4

More surpluses?

tion fee deficiency allocation from
the budget surplus, the administration has an unallocated $871,000,
for a total of $1,733,000. Also included in the statement explaining
the budget surplus — called an
"operating fund balance" in the
UBC statement — is a line item for
"future price increases in utilities"
amounting to $273,000.
But under the Social Credit
government's restraint program,
utilities such as B.C. Hydro will be
limited to six per cent rate increases
this year. Standard budgeting procedures also anticipate inflationary
increases from year to year, leaving
UBC with potential large utility savings.
UBC information services officer
Al Hunter says the university cannot free funds allocated to potential
enrolment losses until the end of
January because UBC cannot be
sure of final enrolment figures and
revenues until that time. The
university has not allocated the
unappropriated $871,000 to any
area at this time, Hunter said.
Frank said the university's
reputation has been damaged by administration attempts to hide the
budget surplus discovered in the
summer, by putting it into areas
where it isn't needed.

Barrett tells students to go
Democratic party leader Dave Barrett told Belmont secondary
students camped at the legislature
since last Tuesday to "go home"
during a rally at the legislature
Tuesday afternoon.
Barrett said "you're not furthering your education by being here,"
and that the only support the NDP
could give the students was to
debate education cuts in the
The students had been picketing
the legislature to demand a meeting
with education minister Bill Vander
Zalm after Belmont and Edward
Milne secondary students walked
out of classes to protest education
Ten Belmont students were
suspended earlier this week "for
refusing to return to classes," according to Belmont principal Leo
Vander   Zalm   refused   to   meet
with the students because they were
breaking the law by skipping class.
Student spokesperson John
Biollo said, "We got blackballed by
Mr. Barrett. We brought him out
hoping he would show support. A
lot of people went away dumbfounded."
Biollo said the students would
break the legislature picket and
begin to fight the Sooke school
board to revoke the suspensions.
"We tried. We still haven't given
up," said Billio.
The strikes, which began at Edward Milne secondary school in
Sooke, have still not spread to other
local schools, and students have
blamed the lack of support on the
suspensions high school administrations imposed on those who did join
the protestors at the legislature.
About 30 students and their
parents turned out for the rally
Tuesday afternoon, although two
students from Esquimau secondary
school in Victoria presented a petition with 300 signatures opposing
education cuts to Vander Zalm's office.
Many   of   the   students   were
angered by Barrett's comments,
Biollo said. After Barrett told
students to go back to class, one
said, "But we can't go back because
we've been suspended."
Ken Purse, Sooke school board
chair said the board would consider
the suspensions soon, and would
contact the suspended students'
Chaland said so far reaction to
the suspensions was mixed. Even
though many of the parents supported what their children were doing they also recognized the validity
of the suspensions, he said.
Students at Sooke picketed the
school board office Wednesday to
protest the suspensions.

Amnesty pushes

A farmworkers union secretary is
arrested and accused of organizing

The man is not forgotten. In a

Amnesty International speakers discussed how the organization attempts to gain the release of similar
The speakers detailed the organization's mandate, which seeks the
release of those imprisoned for their
beliefs, color, sex, ethnic origin,
language or religion. Amnesty advocates fair and prompt trials, and
opposes the death penalty and torture.
The death penalty issue is controversial. "The official argument
against the death penalty is that it
violates the right to life provisions
of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights," said Nick Portman of
the Kitsilano group. Most Canadians favor seeing capital punishment reinstated, he said.
Amnesty International will hold a
workshop on letter writing for prisoners of conscience Oct. 8, 12:30 in

Volunteers fare
well at fair event
Even without pay, volunteer programs offer students valuable
rewards, a volunteer fair organizer
said Thursday.
"Volunteering makes texts come
alive, helps studies and allows
students to experience what their
chosen career may be like first
hand," said Peggy Mersereau, a
representative of the Vancouver
volunteer center's youth involvement program.
"Students are busy, but many
find they can work a volunteer program into their schedule," she said.
The volunteer fair includes
health, handicapped, cultural, and
conservationist groups.
"This is merely a sampling of
what is available," says Mersereau.
"In Vancouver there are more than
400 volunteer groups."
The response to this weeks
volunteer fair was better than it was
last year, said David Wong, a
volunteer representative of the

Pornography encourages violence against women. It portrays them as
sexual objects waiting to be pursued, seduced, and cast aside. By selling
pornography, UBC encourages the degradation and objectifiction of
If openly racist magazines were available on campus, the UBC community would demand their removal. Magazines with pictures of white people
beating and threatening black people would not be tolerated on campus.
Demanding the removal of pornography from campus stores is undoub-
tably a form of censorship. Rather than protesting because people are being denied access, we should view this demand as a contribution to the
emancipation of women. We must question the balance between access to
pornographic magazines and the suppression of women's equality.
Women cannot be equal when sexual abuse by men remains acceptable.
It is time that men listened to how women feel when they are continually
confronted by frightening and humiliating pictures of women being sexually abused by men.
Pornography hurts men as well. They are depicted as aggressive, unfeeling, brutal and interested in nothing but their own sexual pleasure. This
makes it harder for men who are trying to be open-minded and caring
human beings. It enforces an image which many men reject.
An area of debate has unquestionably been bpe/ied by the controversies
surrounding pornography. The issue of censorship must be given careful
thought and consideration.
Rejecting pornography is part of the evolutionary process of the emancipation of women. Seventy years ago people believed that allowing
women the right to vote was infringing on the status quo. Women realized
they did not have to accept this treatment, and fought until they won
equal voting   rights.
People today must realize that they too can reject a virulent form of sexism and exploitation of women by rejecting pornographic magazines which
place women in a role neither acceptable nor equal.
' Israeli invasion halted PLO terror tactics'
1 am writing in protest against the
irresponsible piece of journalism
printed on Sept. 28 on the Palestinian refugees' massacre in
From the overwhelming bias of
the article towards the poor "martyred" Palestinians I mistakenly
assumed 1 was reading an editorial.
Instead it was presented as a factual
news report. I am appalled that the
Ubyssey as a legitimate and
respected publication can neglect its
responsibility to present the whole
story to its readers.
The students of U.B.C. have a
right to see the other side of the
story in order to form a more informed opinion about the Middle
East conflict.
Israel entered Lebanon primarily
to protect the inhabitants of the
Galilee from constant bombing
originating from across the
Lebanese border. Israel was also
concerned with helping bring to an
end Lebanon's bloody civil war by
ridding Lebanon of the domination
of foreign forces — namely Pales-
tian and Syrian armed units — who
have turned an unwilling Lebanon
into a battlefield for their war
against Israel.
While no one likes an invader,
the beleaguered Lebanese welcomed
the Israeli troops, according to
Charles Wilson, a Texas Democrat
in favour of the AW ACS sale and
the planned Jordanian arms sale,
after a July visit to Lebanon.
It is easy to see why the Lebanese
would welcome relief from the
presence of the P.L.O.  David K.
Shipler of the New York times
wrote of the terrorization of the
citizens by the P.L.O. It confiscated
houses, land, cars, and stole at will.
It displaced local Lebanese officials, threatened and killed innocent people, creating an atmosphere
of chaos and hatred.
Reports in the media regarding
Israel's role as "invader" were
highly exaggerated. At first it was
said that 10,000 people had been
killed and 600,000 turned into
refugees. But no sooner had these
figures been imprinted on the
publics mind than the Lebanese
authorities themselves put the total
population of the area at 510,000.
Israel estimates 20,000 regugees
and approximately 2,000 casualties
of whom more than half were only
wounded. Although the Israeli
figures are drastically lower than
the original ones, local officials and
residents of the cities tend to reinforce the Israeli estimates.
Whatever the precise number
there were still too many civilian
deaths. Why? Simply put, the
P.L.O. strategically placed the huge
amounts of weapons and ammunitions purchased with Saudi and
other Arab money in densely
populated civilian areas in the hope
that this would deter Israeli attacks
or exact a prize from Israel in world
opinion for killing civilians. This
type of action is stricly prohibited
under international law —
specifically, Article 28 of the
Geneva Convention of 1948.
The responsibility of civilian
casualties and damages rests com-
Murdered deserve respect
The caption under your photo of the demonstrating Palestinian children
(Tuesday, Sept. 28) was disgusting and irresponsible, all the more so
because it was located next to an article with the inflammatory heading,
Israel helped Phalangists.
The 'humorous' caption described Begin as exclaiming "Where are they,
exactly? We'll send the troops right away" and suggested that Reagan felt
the Americans could have done better (in massacring women and children).
It is shocking to find such an issue treated with hilarity in a student
newspaper. The fact is that hundreds of lives ended abruptly and horribly
in the refugee camps. Every caring person is concerned about the massacre
in Lebanon - including world Jewry and many Israelis.
Grief cannot bring back the dead, but we owe them at least a respectful
and sensitive treatment of their deaths in the newspapers. Let us withold
our accusation until the results of the investigation are known, and once
the results are known, let us treat the matter with respect.

pletely on the P.L.O. Israel did exactly as required by dropping
leaflets warning civilians to leave
the area.
Israel also took other steps to
minimize civilian casualties, many
of which led to an increase in their
own casualties. The Israeli strikes
were so careful as to leave whole
areas of southern Lebanon untouched. If there had really been indiscriminate bombing, both the
level of destruction and the number
of casualties would have been far
In protecting the security of its
borders Israel is judged by a double
standard whereby it is condemned
for exercising the right to things
that all other people are accorded
an unchallengable right to do. All
too often it is easier to condemn
Israel than to defend it.
Perhaps the fierceness of Israel's
will to live is what has made it a
scandal and a reproach to its fellow
democracies in the Western world.
For Israel has shown that the use of
military force is sometimes
necessary — not a popular notion
after the Vietnam war. But Israel
has "chosen life" as God commanded the Israelites in the Bible, a
choice of life that often involves
choosing the sacrifices and horrors
of war.

African story is unqualified, unobjective
I have read The Ubyssey since
coming to UBC for graduate study
some three years ago. I must add
that I also read this paper during
my undergraduate years at UBC in
the early seventies. I have been to
several university campuses in
Canada and the United States and,
somehow, have come to view The
Ubyssey as one of the better student
papers on the campuses I have
In the last year or so, I have read,
with interest and some measure of
disappointment, articles in The
Ubyssey that have addressed a
variety of issues in which authors
have all too often taken uninformed, indeed uneducated, positions. I
shall spare the reader the trouble of
reading details of these uninformed
debates and will make no further
reference to them.
However, if the reader will bear
with me, I feel obliged to share with
enlightened members of this learned
community my concern for The
Ubyssey's declining journalistic excellence. This is reflected by the
rather poor quality of some of its
articles in terms of factual content
and objective reporting.
I shall illustrate this lack of objectivity and thoroughness in
reporting with reference to the article 'Hit and run her over' which appeared in this Tuesday's (September
28) Ubyssey.
For the benefit of the reader who
may not have seen this article, here
is a synopsis. The article claims that
women in Africa are not only
discriminated against in their places
of  work   but,   in   particular,   are
denied by their men the very basic
right to drive (on the highway). I
article alleges that African men take
offense when they see women driving. I shall not bore the reader with
lengthy quotations from the article
but I believe the following line
underscores the main thrust of the
article: "Some men (African men,
that is) are so outraged by women
drivers that when they see one coming, they drive straight into her to
push her off the road." The
bracketed phrase in the quotation is
mine, inserted for emphasis.
This article has several implications and I shall not attempt a
detailed analysis of how it might be
interpreted in various quarters. A
few comments are in order,
however. First, as an African who
knows more about Africa and
Africans than the entire staff of The
Ubyssey put together, I take great
offense in being made to read articles (in what is supposedly an
enlightened student paper) whose
sole motive is to demean Africa and
Africans. Any informed reader who
comes upon the type of generalized
allegations made in said Ubyssey article is bound to question both
motives of the author or editor(s)
and the journalistic integrity of the
Incidentally, what journalistic
credentials does the so-called Inter
Press Service have as a reporting
agency for The Ubyssey on African
affairs and what other information
was included in that agency's
original report to The Ubyssey that
was not included in the Ubyssey article? The Ubyssey must be made
aware of the important responsibility which the students of this institution have bestowed upon it and its
This responsibility demands of
The Ubyssey and its staff responsible, factual and objective reporting
of issues of interest to this community and not the sort of sensational reporting that exploits
legend, myth and half-truths to
serve the ego of one segment of
society at the expense of another.
Finally, some rebuttals to the
statements made in The Ubyssey article are in order. First, there are
cars in Africa; there may not be as
many cars as there are here but
there are cars nonethless.
But those who allege that
Africans consider driving a privilege
betray their own ignorance of conditions in Africa.
I, myself, come from a small
country in Africa which is no richer
than most other countries on the
continent. Yet many of my
country's citizens consider cars and
driving as a necessity, not a luxury
(and, hence, not a privilege) as
some Ubyssey staffers would have
us believe. Many of my own
friends' wives drive to and from
work each weekday. That men in
Africa deny women the right to
drive is a myth known only to the
Ubyssey and its cohorts.
Readers may also wish to know
that although there are fewer
women with professional qualific-
tions than there are professional
men in many African countries (and
I bet I would find the same to hold
in Canada), a man and woman with
Maranatha Christians not cult
I would like to comment on the
poor and inaccurate reports submitted by a few people regarding the
Maranatha Christian Club on campus.
First, Maranatha is not a cult —
not even according to UBC
chaplain George Hermanson. A few
months ago, I inquired about
Maranatha by asking Pastor Rode,
a pastor at a Lutheran church in
Coquitlam, to look into the matter
for me. Having contacted George
Hermanson himself, Pastor Rode
returned to me with "No,
Maranatha is not a cult" but they
do things a little different in their
desire to get away from religious
tendencies that so many people fall
I challenge you to read up on
cults and get well informed with
respect to how they are formed and
the motives behind them before you
speak out of ignorance or because
someone else said so. See for
yourself. I would recommend a
book called The Kingdom of the
Cults by Walter R. Martin.
Secondly,   no   "doubters   were
asked to leave." On the contrary,
people were encouraged to stick
around and discuss what was said.
Those who left did so on their own,
and those who were being impolite
while Nick Pappis was speaking
were asked to either refrain from interrupting or leave, which, I am
sure you would agree, is the usual
procedure during any event.
Thirdly, I am disappointed at the
comprehension level of these so-
called journalists who seemed to
have missed the whole point of
what was being communicated. So,
in case you really did miss it or were
just afraid to speak out, I will sum
it up for you: as AMS president
Dave Frank will agree, there are
many things that need changing at
this university as well as in our
society today and since we are the
future generation it is up to us to initiate and carry through these
In other words, stop being so
apathetic and so readily accepting
of everything "UBC" and stand up
for  what   is  right,   for  the  good
SBA hopes quarrel ends
After reading Peter Leung's letter of Sept. 24 I felt compelled to reply.
It is unfortunate that James Hollis had to be caught in an unpleasant
position between the Student Broadcasting Association and filmsoc. I
would like to make it clear that it is not filmsoc my complaint is directed
against, but two executive members who acted on their own initiative and
unfortunately smeared their own club's reputation. There is no need to go
into details of the dispute since Hollis has already explained what happened.
I have no desire to get involved in a petty fight over an incident that is
over and done with. It was over when the appropriate government agencies
said our activities were legal.
It's a shame that this petty fight has escalated to what it has. Now that
the positions of both clubs are clear, I would like to suggest that we let
bygones be bygones, and end the quarrel now.

morals and values that we've lost
through the years. We were founded on Christian principles — until
people decided that they would do

You see, Christianity is a way of

challenging. True, Christianity calls
people to attain their true identity
and to reach their ideal goals — yes,

potential. I know that as human beings, we are much more than

Prayer, solace offered

As Almighty GOD, I greet you.
I offer My Prayers and Solace to a world gradually declining in Love.
People worship on Sunday, but throughout the week, evil and sin abide in
enormous quantity. No matter what the outcome of Virtue, My Son and I
will always be by the side of Our Loved ones throughout the world — the
poor, handicapped, affluent — all who offer their prayers to a Divine
Countenance, who in turn answers Prayer. We will not leave you comfortless, no matter what the outcome of adversity is.
My heart is sad and heavy laden as Nations bicker about territorial
rights, nuclear escalation — who is right, who is wrong — with no way to
turn. Divine guidance from Me can solve all problems if given a chance, so
humanity can survive and not be in the doldrums of despair. Love can conquer fear, if only people will listen to My plea and answer My Prayers.
The road to survival is not as tremendous as the outcome looks. The
stockpiling of nuclear arms is definitely not the answer. The road to tranquility is not hard to attain, if only My Son and I are given a chance to
redeem Ourselves.
V/ith Love and devotion, as Almighty GOD, My Holy SPIRIT has Dictated this Letter to you, dear followers of Faith, through My Son who

Hermanson changes stand
When I first joined Maranatha,
my relatives naturally wanted to
know what kind of organization I
had gotten involved with. My aunt,
who resides in Tsawassen took it
upon herself after having discussed
the subject over with the family (excluding me of course) to do some
investigation of her own. Her
search brought her to none other
than George Hermanson, the
chaplain involved with Christian
Co-operative Ministries.
After having talked to him on a
couple of occasions, she was
assured that I had indeed joined a
valid Christian organization. In fact
my involvement was in no way
discouraged but instead cheered on.
this of course cleared up any doubt
she had had in the past concerning
me, after all the chaplain told her
exactly what she wanted to know.
Alarmingly enough, George Hermanson turned right around and
stated the complete opposite in a recent Ubyssey publication. In doing
so, he completely satisfied the student body who are afraid of a group
totally committed to the Lordship
of Jesus Christ.
It would appear that the chaplain
George Hermanson is unable to
take a clear stand on the issue, but
instead responds appropriately to
whomever he is dealing with. It
would also appear that the chaplain
doesn't know his theology too well,
after all does the bible not say, "No
one can serve two masters . . ."

Grandfather's War full
of sickening jingoism
A few years from now, when the
last vc'eran of World War I dies,
the so-called Great War will exist
only on the pages of history books.
In My Grandfather's War, William
Mathieson has researched and collected WW 1 veterans' feelings and
thoughts about their experiences of
that distant war.
My Grandfather's War Canadians
Remember the First World War,
By William Mathieson
330 pages
Mathieson's intention is to let the
veterans speak of their experiences
first-hand,    rather    than    have
were there.
Images of fervent nationalism,
battalions leaving by ship for
Europe, and Canadian troops training in England all become more
clear when described by veterans.
So do images of mud, trenches,
rats, and battlefields strewn with
the bodies of dead soldiers.
Unfortunately for Mathieson,
and especially for the reader, he
never delves in any great depth
beyond imagery.
But the nationalism and war
hysteria that swept Canada during
the summer of 1914 are well
documented in My Grandfather's
War, like the huge parades that
thronged    through    downtown
dy to charge
academics compile yet another
work on a major event in human
history. In the preface, Mathieson
writes, "My great fear has been
that, one morning in 1989 or 1991,
we might read in the paper 'Last
Canadian Veteran of 1914-18 War
Dies in Lethbridge.' Then it would
be too late."
My Grandfather's War makes
compelling reading becuse it is
intensely personal. Rather than an
objective summary of the war, its
causes and results, the reader is
thrust right into the reminiscences,
letters and diaries of people who
Toronto. Bands played and huge
crowds waved with excitement as
the troops march to the train station
to begin the first leg of their journey
to Europe.
But amid all the energy and
joviality, one can't help thinking
that someone there must have been
disgusted by it all. If so, his comments certainly are not in
Mathieson's book. Mathieson
himself seems to suffer from a
similar kind of nationalism and
fascination with war. Surely a
writer has an obligation to seek out
all points of view, especially when
the book is intended as a peronaliz-
ed view of the war. Where are the
doubts? Where is the questioning?
Why did we march, thousands of
away, to kill people we didn't even
know and who wished to harm us
no more than we wished to harm
them? If soldiers ever asked such
questions, and many must have,
they have been unforgivably
overlooked by Mathieson.
After a few dozen pages, one
quickly becomes disheartened by
Mathieson's enthusiastic and
sickening jingoism. He talks of
"glowing episodes" and "gallant
stands." But the large bulk of the
text is made up of the words of the
veterans themselves, and this fact
makes struggling through
Mathieson's inane commentary well
worth the effort.
A person totally ignorant of WW
I could conceivably read the first
third of My Grandfather's War
before realizing the extent of killing
that occurred. Death, destruction
and suffering are conveniently
played down by Mathieson, and only certain quotations from veterans
supply the reader with any valuable
Many of the veterans resort to
jingolism when remembering what
to them must of necessity be a noble
and heroic past. Says one: "We
went over the parapet in the happiest ways, laughing, joking, some
fellows even smoking."
A 19 year old Canadian soldier is
executed for desertion, with a battalion of soldiers forced to watch. A
chaplain writes to the parents of a
dead soldier. "You may be proud
of your son, his services for the Empire are greatly appreciated." Is
death merely a "service" to them?
Must young men choose between
fighting in war, and being murdered
by the government of their own
country? Don't look to Mathieson

Akiyama's focus on technique over
human sentiments lacks nuances
Roger Bannister was the first
human to rjn a mile in under four
minutes. To run a mile in under
four dedicate himself to a supremely strict regimen of exercise, as he
trained himself to near perfection at
a single task.
Sitiiliarly Sergei Rachmaninoff,
in order to play fabulously difficult
concertos, had to discipline himself
in a rigorous program of fantastic
Now, Bannister's running a four-
minute mile is a tremendous personal achievement, and so is
Rachmaninoff's pianism. The difference between the two lies in considering biirr*pn feeling and spirit.
To reach Bannister's status, it is
necessary at times to neutralize
these feelfings in order to operate
more efficiently. We all saw the
apotheosis of this in the dreadfully
dull Neil Armstrong walking
around on the moon and never once
yelling, "Yippee, I made it!"
But in the case of the pianist, the
artist, it is precisely these human
sentiments which must be
cultivated. Unfortunately, that is
difficult; it is risky, because the artist runs the risk of exposure to
The alternative is to concentrate
on technique, which is what the
Vancouver Symphony Orchestra
under the baton of conductor
Kazuyoshi Akiyama did Monday
The program began with an
unimaginative performance of En
Saga by Sibelius. The Grieg Piano
Concerto, with soloist Andre
Laplante, followed, and the same
was true: yet another performance
of the famous Grieg Concerto, utterly   undistinguished   from   every
other, but accurately played
nonetheless. Finally was Carl
Nielsen's giant Inextinguishable
Symphony, with lots of crashing
and banging, but no nuances that
could be laid to the responsibility of
the conductor.
To be sure, the performers must
be given great respect. I cannot
overemphasize the difficulty in
undertaking a performance of
classical symphony. I am always
amazed by the dedication to producing such a wonder of design and
Akiyama's conceptions of music
seem of this sort. All the technique
is there, and there was a time not
long ago when the VSO needed that
technical expertise. But it is becoming increasingly evident that under
the present regimen everything concentrates on the flashy and bombastic.
Mitchell's Faust play
worth curling up to
Satan: I am a travelling man.
Wullie: To my mind you look
more like a professional man — a
university professor?
Satan:That's very perceptive of
you. I do a lot of work in the Academe.
Such wit dominates W. O. Mitchell's The Black Bonspiel of Wullie
MacCrimmon, which is currently
given a delightful production by
Vancouver Playhouse.
The Black Bonspiel of
Wullie MacCrimmon
By W. O. Mitchell
Directed by Walter Learning
At the Queen Elizabeth Playhouse
until Oct. 23
It seems that Satan, referred to in
the play as Mr. O'Cloutie (Ted Follow), wants to win the "Celestial
Brier." To do so, he needs Wullie
on his team and offers him a standard Faust contract: Wullie's soul
for the Macdonald Brier award.
Wullie — for the sake of a second
act — proposes a modification.
Wullie says he will only play in hell
if his team loses to O'Cloutie's team
in a Sunday bonspiel. But if
O'Cloutie's team loses, Wullie gets
the Macdonald Brier and keeps his
soul as well.
The bonspiel is not easy to play
because it is complicated by characters' slipped discs and opposition to
Sunday curling.
Mitchell has to be one of the best
writers of puns since Shakespeare,
and Black Bonspiel is loaded with
them. But this production's second
act is slightly flat. Also, because
other members of O'Cloutie's team
(MacBeth, Judas Iscariot and Guy
Fawkes) are depicted as clowns,
many directors, including the Playhouse's Walter Learning, have
given into the temptation to handle
them as caricatures.
The second act's bonspiel should
be a tense, sweat-filled game, but
the caricatures detract from the tension. Espcially the revolting are
manerisms of Mark Wilson as
But misplaced caricatures do not
ruin this production, wiiich inaugurates the Playhouse's 20th anniversary. The major characters are
well portrayed. Although Eric
House as Wullie tends to mumble
and race through his lines, the performance is generally splendid and
it is matched by Ted Follow's
Satan. Also notable is Daphne
Goldrick who does her best with the
weak role of Annie Brown, the
town busybody.
The sets by Michael Nemirsky are
good; especially effective is the curling rink used in the second act.
The Black Bonspiel of Wullie
MacCrimmon may be the hottest
game in town. Even if you don't
curl, it's great fun.
The producers of From Broadway With Love, which recently
finished a sell-out run at Queen
Elizabeth Playhouse achieved
almost exactly what they hoped to
do. They presented a full-length
musical production designed to give
local audiences a taste of Broadway
musicals ranging from Guys and
Dolls to West Side Story and Annie.
In the process, they also reminded
us that Broadway has its share of
Part of the problem with From

New book on Pinter
fails to enlighten
Of all 20th century dramatists,
Harold Pinter seems destined to occupy a permanent place in theatre
history. But it was only a little over
two decades ago, in 1958, that one
critic rejected Pinter's The Birthday
Party as "half-gibberish." Characters whose motives and explanations were unclear baffled audiences and critics alike.
Harold Pinter
By Bernard F. Dukore
Grove Press
139 pages, $10.50
What Pinter demonstrated in his
plays, including The Birthday Party, was a new dramaturgy.
Although the comedy of manners
and T. S. Eliot's verse plays such as
Murder in the Cathedral were not in
vogue any more, Pinter's plays were
hardly in the same genre as John
Osborne's, for example. Angry, kitchen sink dramatists like Osborne
revelled in naturalism; and the only
playwright whose plays had absurdist elements was Samuel Beckett.
Pinter's new spectators and readers
who feel puzzled and disoriented,
and to those older ones who, while
absorbed, remain mystified." It is
unlikely, however, that the same
spectators will feel less puzzled and
disoriented after reading Dukore's
Those who plow through Dukore' s book are not likely to find
"ways of enjoying and appreciating" Pinter's plays. Dukore categorizes Pinter's plays in sections
that deal with three Pinter works.
But the sections, which include
Menace and Absurd, Towards
Greater Realism, and Recapitulations and Fresh Starts, seem more
arbitrary than enlightening.
With the exception of the chapter
on The Homecoming, Struggles for
Power, Dukore's best is reserved
for the introductory and concluding
chapters. It is here that Dukore
makes the best observations, elaborating on past Pinter criticism. For
example, Dukore mentions analogies between Anton Chekhov's
works and Pinter's plays: "Deliber-
Birthday P«rtV>
But Bernard F. Dukore, author
of a new book on Pinter's plays, is
well aware that "the school of Osborne and the school of Beckett are
not mutually exclusive in Pinter."
Pinter himself has said, "What goes
on in my plays is realistic, but what
I'm doing is not realism."
Dukore is equally aware that
some audiences feel discomfort
when they see Pinter for the first
time. His book "is addressed to

have been more effective and exciting.
Such a move would have helped
because most Broadway tunes
sound like Broadway tunes; so for a
song to be more compelling than
the average schlock it must either
differ from the standard formula or
somehow transcend it. Cool from
West Side Story is an example of
the former, Tomorrow from Annie
the latter. Allof which is to say that
the show could have been tightened
if such insipid songs as Broadway,
My Street, Dames, and Oklahoma
had been jettisoned.
While it is true that the show suffered at times by not having a completely professional cast, the
criticism would be unfair. One of
the prime goals of its producer,
Vancouver civic theatre, is to give
new talent opportunity to work in a

voice into the play; he wants his
characters to reveal themselves, not
to tell audiences what to infer or be
lieve. Beckett too refuses to employ
a spokesman."
Pinter takes Chekhov one step
further. Not only does he refuse to
preach to his audiences (unlike
John Osborne), but he deliberately
leaves his character's motivations
ambiguous. Although the term
"comedy of menace" was not originally meant to describe Pinter's
works, its use by critic Irvine War-
die has been tacked on to Pinter —
and with good reason. As Dukore
says, "The shape and structure of
most of Pinter's plays reflect his
distinctive type of tragicomedy,
suggested by his statements that
everything, even tragedy, is funny,
until the play reaches a point where
it is no longer funny."
When staged realistically,
Pinter's plays can be marvelous to
watch because the ambiguous elements of characters' speeches, their
pauses, hesitations and coverups,
seem to go against the grain of our
expectations of what a realistic
work should tell us. So, in Pinter
Judy Chicago's vivid Dinner
Party right out of history
Right Out of History is a vivid
and insightful cinematic glance into
the making of Judy Chicago's Dinner Party. It focuses on Chicago's
effort to construct the beginnings of
feminist history in western civilization, and follows Chicago's
work through five years of anxiety,
hope, and despair.
As Chicago states when the
movie begins, her aim is to pay
tribute to the thousands of women
whose achievements have never
been written into the history of our
civilization. She does this through
the creation of 39 place settings at a
huge triangular table, each
representing one woman and her
unacknowledged contribution to
history. The women range from ancient goddesses and warriors to 20th
century writers and artists.
Choosing 39 women out of
thousands was difficult, but the
names of 999 others are inscribed in
gold on the porcelin floor, explain
the 400 volunteer artists involved in
the project.
The film jumps between disaster
and success as research is completed
and the artwork begun. Tiny stitches are woven into brilliant
tapestries, and large, three dimensional plates are painted in shining

and experimenting with each plate.
ment proves successful.
As funding runs low, and
criticism grows, the atmosphere in
the workshop intensifies. We view a
deeper aspect of the construction —
the interaction between the main ar-

the plates vary in shape, rising into
rounded folds, blossoming flowers,
or intricate designs. Music on
screen growls menacingly as a plate
is lifted out of the kiln with a large
crack, and lightens as an experi-

Although badly filmed, scenes of
disputes, tears, and laughter of the
artists are woven into a theme that
stresses greater understanding of
the statement the Dinner Party is
making. As artists, mainly women
there is no Jimmy Porter telling us
about how the system has failed to
give him a decent life; instead we
have Davies in The Caretaker, for
example, who mumbles his way
through his alienation from society.
Dukore's writing not only lacks
critical vigor and interest, it also ignores for the most part how various
productions of Pinter's works have
been staged. For a book that is addressed to new "spectators" as well
as readers of Pinter, that is a flaw
which cannot be overlooked. For
example, the American production
of The Birthday Party is given this
mention: "Directorial embellishments can visually fortify the verbal. Alan Schneider's Broadway
production did so." What does that
tell us about the virtues of the production, if any at all? And it comes
as a great surprise that Dukore expects us to be satisfied with such
scant mentions, which do not even
occur with any kind of regularity or
reason. Dukore could have easily
overcome this problem by including
dramatic criticism from Kenneth
Tynan or Harold Hobson to complement the chapters on plays.
Dukore seems to have heeded
Pinter's warning about trying to
categorize his characters. "When a
character cannot be comfortably
defined or understood in terms of
the familiar, the tendency is to
perch him on a symbolic shelf, out
of harm's way," Pinter has said.
Although Dukore avoids putting
Pinter's characters on symbolic
shelves, he places them instead on
obscure, confusing and unenlight-
ening ones.
The result is six chapters of obscure observations that do not gel
into a discernible body of criticism,
and two chapters that stand out as
good, if brief, essays on Pinter and
other playwrights' influences on
Two chapters, the Introduction
and The Place of Pinter, that stand
at the opposite ends of each other
do not make Dukore's book worth
reading. Most of Dukore's points
can be found in existing Pinter criticism and analysis, including Martin
Eslin's Pinter. For those interested
in Pinter's dramaturgy — including
how The Homecoming was staged
— The Casebook Studies text on
The Homecoming is required reading. Dukore's book is not.
struggle with the Dinner Party, we
get a glimpse of obstacles the
women the art portrays had to deal
with, and realize the courage they
must have had.
Although many galleries refused
to exhibit Judy Chicago's work, the
Dinner Party was finally displayed
to the public. The completed table
is stunningly beautiful. The majority of plates, and the table itself, are
images of a woman's labia and
vulva, carefully molden into symbols of women who have been ignored by male historians.
The plate for Virginia Wolf is a
lyrical blend of raised red, yellow,
and orange flowers. It rests on the
table in the midst of an exquisitely
embroidered white tablecloth. Emily Dickenson's plate is enveloped by
folds of lace, and the colors on the
plate for Georgia magically blur into each other.
The full meaning of the Dinner
Party becomes slowly apparent.
Women are absent in history not
for lack of achievement, but
because men have written history.
The Dinner Party succeeds in bringing to life women who have been
dead for centuries.
Right Out of History makes it
clear that through their acceptance
of traditional history, many women
remain buried in the historical
values of our society. As Judy
Chicago so bluntly states, "Women
are fucking ignorant." Page 10

professional production. The plan
seems to have paid off, and the producers are to be complimented.
The only other general problem
with the show was occasional difficulty in hearing a singer. This
situation seemed to result from
acoustic problems as well as some
performers' problems in projection.
The dancing was usually of a high
calibre, though the choreography
was sometimes derivative. Back
Stage Ballet was excellently done, as
was the tap dancing of 42nd Street.
Jackie Coleman, who had the lead
in All That Jazz was my personal
favorite, as her energy, technique,
and style exemplified professionalism. Belinda Sobie's footwork in America from West Side
Story was another highlight of the
While it's difficult to single out
individual singers, Don Wright's
Some Enchanted Evening, Summertime, performed by Dawne
Lacterman, Mary Ann Lewis's rendition of This Is My Beloved, Aura
Pithart's spirited Tomorrow, and
several of Nessa Flewelling's performances were impressive.
As Annie Oakley, Jeann Wright
performed You Can't Get A Man
With A Gun with just the right
combination of charm and energy.
Unfortunately this combination
eluded Ed Milaney's stereotyped
Russian-Jewish peasant in Fiddler
On The Roof, overdoing the
character's cuteness. Also on the
negative side, Doug Gardiner overdid it on Something's Coming to
the point of being awkward.
The sets too were elaborate and
inventive, highlighted by the arrival
of a riverboat on the banks of the
Mississippi River. A lot of love and
talent went into the work to create
some incredible scenery.
Vancouver Civic Theatre Company may remount their production
in Vancouver and perhaps even in
Victoria or Seattle because of the
enthusiastic response they received,
including many standing ovations.
If they do, it's quite likely that this
essentially interesting show will improve as the cast gets more experience and the length stays under
three hours.

Beyond Seeing
Photographs by Joel Walker
and Judy Weiser
At Presentation House until Oct. 10
We rarely evaluate what our response to a work of art says about
This is especially true of photographs. The abundance of photographic images today tends to make
people view them casually.
Beyond Seeing, an exhibition of
photographs at Presentation House
works against that. The viewer is invited to provide written responses
to questions accompanying the photos. Some questions are quite general; what is the mood of this
photo? What clues in the photo
evoke that response?
Other questions invite the viewer
to write their response on cards accompanying the photos and then
compare their responses to those on
cards left by others.
Everyone is encouraged to evaluate why they have responded in that
People are also invited to discuss
their responses with those accompanying them, or even (holy civility,
Batman) with strangers in the
"The first step in breaking down
barries to communication is sharing
understandings and understanding
differences," explains the iniroduc-
tion to the exhibit.
Individuals are also asked to
compare their own responses to
images that differ only in color.
In most ways the show is a success. It provokes more thoughtful
responses to individual photos and
forces us to evaluate the function of
art in general. The exhibit also tries
to extend the relationships explored
within the exhibit outside the realm
of art.
"The process can be used by you
with any image, anything or anyone
you encounter — and they with
you," says the introduction.
But Beyond Seeing is weakened
by several factors. First is the fact
that many of the questions are
simple-minded; questions like
"What are these people saying?" or
"Tell a story about this picture"
that everybody enjoyed so much in
grade four.
The second problem arises from
the fact that both the photographers are therapists who use photographs as a way of initiating discussion with their parents. Many of the
questions reflect that bias. They
serve only to evoke a response that
deserves discussion. One leaves
wondering whether the good doctor/photographers will think you
neurotic, schizophrenic or criminally insane. The result is that the most
interesting questions are the ones
that  offer opportunities for comparing responses.
Other problems are purely technical. There are nearly two hundred
images in the show and when written responses to each photo are asked for, the numbers become intimidating. People would be more likely
to thoroughly evaluate their responses to the photos if the exhibit
had a narrower focus.
Another problem lies in the fact
that Presentation House has a lousy
exhibition space. Large windows
create flare and reflections that often mean the only part of yourself
that you see in a photo is your forehead.
There is also nothing to indicate
who took most of the photos. This
becomes a real problem at the end
of the exhibit when the viewer is
asked to guess which photographer
took each of several images. It's a
guessing game most of the way
through the show.
Of course the artists will probably
dismiss such criticism as irrevelant.
No doubt I should have simply evaluated what my complaints say
about the way I perceive things.
I suppose I'm just another hypercritical reviewer seeking revenge for
my own artistic failures.
Why did this boy return?
The futuristic tale A Boy and His
Dog is in town again after a six year
absence. That may make this
schlock piece somewhat of a "cult"
film. The reasons for the film's
return to Vancouver are unclear;
perhaps it has done well on college
campuses and second-run movie
houses elsewhere.
A Boy and His Dog
Directed by L.Q. Jones
Playing at Broadway and
Fraser theatres
The  setting  is  the  post-nuclear
age, in which a boy and his scruffy
dog are left to fend for themselves.
There are three twists in the story:
the dog can speak, the boy is horny
and the female population is
An underworld committee
decides the boy will make a good
stud for its cavern dynasty. In order
to capture the boy, the committee
sends a girl to seduce him. Boy
meets Girl, as it were.
Some ideas in A Boy and His Dog
actually work. For example, the
savage world is well juxtaposed with
the underworld Utopia, which is
depicted as a surrealistic microcosm
of 19th century rural America. The
leader of the underworld is played
by Jason Robards.
But overall the film falls flat. The
dog, named Blood, looks like a
Lassie reject. Played by Don
Johnson, Boy is a mechanical body
wound up every few minutes to
have arguments with the dog. The
boy looks like an escapee from the
Dukes of Hazard.
What A Boy and His Dog has to
do with science fiction, I do not
know. A Boy and His Dog can be
appreciated as science fiction only if
one's idea of genere involves desert
rocks, old clothes, and dark lighting
on pancake faces.

Strangers in
their own land
Native women who marry "non-Indians" lose
treaty status. A once matrilineal society
has lost against European patriarchal values.
By Canadian University Press
"The least members of society."
Mary Two-Axe Earley, native
women's rights activist describes
her own social group in this way.
"It seems inconceivable that our
biological constitution should be
reason enough for our birthright
and heritage to be arbitrarily
divested at the moment," she said
while addressing a group at McGill
a year ago.
When is an Indian not an Indian?
When she happens to be an Indian
woman who marries a non-Indian.
She loses her treaty status at the
moment of her marriage.
On the other hand, the Indian
men who marry non-Indians retain
all their band membership rights
and privileges, and endow their
wives with the same.
Earley describes this as "a sexist
and discriminatory piece of legislation."
The Indian Act of 1869 states, "a
person with respect to whom an
order for enfranchisement is made
under this act shall, from the day
thereof, or from the day enfranchisement provided for therein, be
deemed not to be an Indian within
the meaning of this Act or any othr
statute of the law."
"Enfranchisement," is the legal
term for an Indian's assimilation into Canadian society. It wasn't until
1956 that Indians were recognized
under the law as Canadians.
When a native woman is enfranchised, she suffers a complete loss
of legal and cultural identity. She is
banished from her community, as
she no longer has the right to live on
reservtion land. She forfeits the
right to vote, and to property
ownership. She will in all likelihood
be excluded from her own family,
and definitely from her tribal in
heritance. And finally, she will be
denied a place in a traditional burial
ground, a crucial religious right for
some native people.
Studies show that when women
are forced to leave their reserves,
entering a state of complete cultural
and social alienation, the result is
increased dependence on alcohol,
welfare, and even suicide.

impressed upon us the feeling that
women were a source of evil. I
belief, combined with the ancient
Indian recognition of the power of
women, is still holding back the
progress of our people.
Maria Campbell, from her book
After the arrival of the European
settlers in Canada, the role of native
women changed drastically.
Iroquois society, for example,
was matrilineal. Women controlled
the traditional home. If an Iroquois
woman was unhappy with the existing living arrangement, she had
only to throw her husband's
belongings out the door to divorce
him. They also maintained possession of children in the case of
separation, and had fundamental
political rights within the community.
Native sex roles changed radically
under the European influence. The
most significant alterations were in
patrilineal inheritance of property,
and the repression of female sexuality.
Through the twentieth century,

this is.
native women and children became
increasingly harsh.
In 1920, the Superintendent-
General was given the power to cut
off an enfranchised native woman's
treaty allowance. An official from
the department of Indian affairs
justified the move by saying,
"When an Indian woman marries
outside the band whether a non-
treaty Indian, or a white man, it is
in the intrests of the department,
and in her interests as well to sever
her connection wholly with the
reserve and the Indian mode of life
The clincher came with Section
12-1-5 of the new Indian Act of
1951: "The following persons are
not entitled to be registered, namely
... a woman who married a person who is not an Indian, unless
that woman is subsequently the wife
or widow of (a treaty individual)
..." A further amendment in
1956 gave the department the
automatic right to enfranchise treaty status children living with their
native mother and non-status stepfather.
Jeanette Level I
In 1970, Jeanette Lavell lost her
treaty status by marrying a "Non-
Indian." She went to court to
regain her status.
The basis of her argument was
that Section 12-1-b contravened the
Bill of Rights. After a defeat in the
Ontario Supreme Court, followed
by a successful appeal, her presentation to the Supreme Court of
Canada had become more definite;
she had been discriminated against
on the basis of race and sex.
In a 5-4 decision, the court ruled
against her. It was the court's decision that they could not overrule the

Indian Act, because it enjoyed
"special status as a protective
legislation." Further, the court ruled the act did not discriminate
against women. And, even if it did,
the Indian Act was simply a
"legislative embodiment of
customary social economic patterns."
The latest in a long series of
defeats for native women took
place last year during the constitutional negotiations. A clause which
would have allowed 16,000 women
and 60,000 children to return to the
reserves was dropped at the last moment.
Groups like the Native Women's
Association and the National
Association of Indian Rights for Indian  women have criticized  their
male counterparts for becoming so
embroiled in their own political
struggle that they continually put
native women's concerns on the
back burner.
They point to the hollowness of
the new bill of rights." When the
Canadian Human Rights Acts was
enacted, the Lavell Case was before
the courts . . . Native women have
found no protection of their rights
under the Canadian Bill of Rights
or the Canadian Human Rights
Nor anywhere else, apparently.
With no support coming from with
the Indian nations or from the
legislative establishment, native
women continue to face the fringe
