Campaign may violate charter
By EVELYN JACOB
The president of Simon Fraser
University's young Socred club says
SFU student society's anti-Social
Credit election campaign, paid for
with student fees, violates the Canadian Charter of Rights.
Mike Sporer said in an interview
Thursday the student society's campaign — which uses student fees to
advertise the poor state of education under the Socred government
— violates the right to freedom of
association. He said the Social
Credit club has hired a lawyer to
look into a possible misuse of
funds.
"This is not an issue between the
Socreds and the NDP," said
Sporer, "It's an improper use of
student fees."
SFU student society's "defeat the
Socreds" campaign began in the
midst of speculation that premier
Bill Vander Zalm would call a fall
election.
The student society has allotted
$3,255 in student fees to pay for
pro-education advertising, which
uses slogans "make education a
mega project," and "for the future
of education, change the government."
Five hundred dollars of the
budget was set aside for advertising
on transit vehicles until Trans Ad,
an advertising agency owned by Expo president Jimmy Pattison, rejected the ads because they were too
political, alleged Stephen Scott, executive officer of the Canadian
Federation of Students Pacific
region.
Torsten Kehler, SFU student
society university relations officer,
said any action taken by the Socred
club would have no legal basis.
"We (the student society) use
money like this for political issues
like transit and poverty all the
time," said Kehler. "I don't think
we're doing anything different this
time," he added.
SFU student society president
Robert Clift said the society's campaign is designed to defeat the
Socred government.
"We (the student society) are
making it clear to the people of
B.C. that the deficiencies in the
education system are a result of 11
years of Socred government," said
Clift.
A UBC law clinic official who
asked not to be identified, said the
society's situation is similar to a
case in Ontario where the Supreme
Court of Canada ruled in favor of a
college teacher who challenged a
union's right to use forced union
dues to support the NDP.
"Organizations that use general
membership fees to support
political parties has become a hot
legal issue," said the official, adding a recent case in B.C. is now
before the courts.
But Clift said legal advice sought
by the society advised they are
within their legal rights to continue
with the campaign providing they
do not support a specific political
party.
"We're not telling people to vote
NDP, we're saying there are alternatives to the Socreds," said Clift.
UBC Alma Mater society president Simon Seshadri said SFU student society's campaign will
damage the credibility of the society
in the eyes of the Social Credit
government.
"They   (SFU   student   society)

have in effect removed their ability
to deal with the Socreds," said
Seshadri.
Besides, "it is an improper
utilization of funds to support a
partisan cause which doesn't
necessarily represent the views of
students," he said.
But Kehler said most SFU
students want their student society
to be outspoken and to take a stand
on issues that affect them.
"Not to take a position on issues
that affect students is political as
well," said Kehler.
Club blasts style
By SVETOZAR KONTIC
The UBC's NDP club's main
strategy for the October election
will be to make its candidates accessible to students, said a member
of the club Monday.
Adrian Dix called premier Bill
Vander Zalm's recent visit to UBC
a "publicity stunt" which did not
achieve anything.
"Vander Zalm went jogging
through SUB and left. He didn't
talk to any students at all," said
Dix.
Dix said that style was important
in the early part of the election campaign, but people are now taking a
harder look at who they want to
govern the province.
Dix said Darlene Marzari, NDP
candidate the Point Grey, has an
excellent chance of winning because
she served as city council member in
Vancouver for eight years.
"Darlene is popular in the area.
When she was elected to city council
she received a lot of votes from peo
ple on the west side of Vancouver,"
said Dix.
Marzari must beat Socred candidate Pat McGeer, who has
represented the Point Grey riding
for the last 24 years. He was elected
as a Liberal in 1962 and became a
Social Credit party member in 1975.
Under McGeer's term as education minister, Dix said B.C.'s
universities deteriorated significant-
ly.
"McGeer has done absolutely
nothing to defend UBC. As for Kim
Campbell, her loyalty to the area
can be shown through the fact that
she first sought nomination in
Burnaby-Edmonds. She only came
to Point Grey because the spot was
open," said Dix.
Dix accused the UBC Socred club
of trying to protect Vander Zalm at
a closed door meeting during the
premiers visit to campus last week.
"They (the Socred club) didn't
want Vander Zalm to answer any
questions becuase he doesn't have
any answers," said Dix.
Transit rejects ads
By PETER MacDOUGALL
A series of student-sponsored
pro-education ads on transit
vehicles have been rejected by the
company that handles ads for B.C.
transit because they are too
political, alleged a Canadian
Federation of Students official
Monday.
Stephen Scott said the CFS and
other post secondary institutions in
B.C. planned to advertise education
as an elected issue but alleged Tran-
sAd, owned by Jimmy Pattison,
refused to run the ads because they
support a partisan cause.
Scott said the ads were originally
approved by Trans Ad salesman,
Jim Wilkins, but were rejected by
Trans Ad president Bob Sinclair.
"Wilkins was covering his ass,"
said Scott.
Scott said the ads were intended
to raise public awareness about
education. They outlined problems
Student surveys Sandinistan system and situation
By STEPHEN WISENTHAL
The Nicaraguan population remains resilient and confident
despite the contra guerilla war and
they are grateful for Canadian aid,
said a UBC student who toured the
country early last month.
In an interview with the Ubyssey
Friday, Adam Jones, international
relations 4, said essentials including
food and cooking oil are rationed in
Nicaragua. "You get used to seeing
shelves that are bare or very poorly
stocked."
They are asking foreign donors
for consumer items including rubber boots for agriculature and
sanitary napkins, which are no
longer made there, he said.
"The women's hospital in
Managua has had all its bedsheets
torn up for rags by women during
their periods," he said.
Nicaraguans see Canada's Tools
for Peace program as a model for
material aid around the world, said
Jones.
Jones   toured   Nicaragua   with
eight other members of Tools for
Peace from across Canada, visiting
Managua and areas around the war
zone between Sept. 2 and 16.
"We always travelled on paved
roads because there weren't going
to be any and mines on them," he
said.
He said he didn't meet any current university students but there
were many young people in positions of responsibility. "I met heads
of departments and health centres
who were 23, 24, 25 years old."
"The education system is in such
dire straits that people who have
just completed a grade will turn
around and teach that grade to
other students," he said.
Illiteracy went from 60 per cent
to 12 per cent during the two years
after the revolution," he said, adding that because the war has,
prevented follow-up teaching, the
official rate has risen to 18 per cent.
"But I suspect that it's higher."
He said rural land reform has

with post-secondary education such
as declining government funding
for B.C.'s colleges and institutions,
tuition fee increases, and the
elimination of the student grant
program.
"The ads asked people to "vote
for education." "There were no
references to any political party,"
said Scott.
Scott said he submitted two new
versions of the ads to TransAd sales
manager John Marshall in which
references to voting were removed
and phrases eliminated such as
"student debts have skyrocketed,"
and "tuition fees among highest in
Canada."
Both versions of the re-made ads
were rejected.
"We (the CFS) wrote a letter to
Mr. Marshall asking why the ads
were rejected, and how we would
make them more acceptable," said
Scott.
The CFS' letter was referred to
Bob Lingwood, corporate secretary
of B.C. Transit. Scott said
Lingwood's letter of reply did not
say why the ads were considered
political, and did not say how the
CFS could make them acceptable.
Several calls were placed to Bob
Egby, B.C. Transit Public relations
officer; none were returned.
"The rights of students to
freedom of speech has been limited
in this province," said Scott.
Christopher Lirette, Douglas
College student society treasurer,
said many of the student groups
were frustrated over B.C. Transit's
rejection of the ads. !»;

Jones cools rising, searing temps
By MICHELLE LALONDE
Canadian University Press
With temperatures rising in newfound debates on censorship, Ann
M. Jones is as soothing as a cool
cloth over your eyes.
Jones is the new chair of the Ontario Film and Video Review
Board, better known as the censor
board. She is surprisingly cheerful
and unguarded as she steps into the
uncoveted shoes of Mary Brown,
one of the most unpopular personalities in the Canadian culture
community.
But Jones doesn't see herself as a
solution to Brown. Rather, she
praises her controversial
predecessor as "an able and
courageous woman who was very
dedicated to her job."
Jones' background may worry
those who call for a more tolerant
— or enlightened — board. Raised
on a farm, she is a religious woman
active with volunteer organizations
including the Boy Scouts and the
Big Sisters. She is also past chair of
the Visiting Homemakers' Association.
She is also proud of her 25-year
history in politics. "You meet so
many kinds of people in politics.
You can't be involved, especially in
senior roles as I have been, without
getting a very broad view of the
community," says Jones.
Jones, who served as an alderman and deputy mayor of
Hamilton, doesn't describe herself
as a feminist — "I'm not sure what
the word 'feminist' means" —
though she has been involved in
many women's organizations.
"I was brought up to believe that
a woman could do whatever she
wanted to, if she worked at it,"
Jones said. "I have never felt in any
way limited because I'm a woman."
Jones recognizes the arguments
against censorship, but believes the
censor board would not exist if people didn't want it.
"There will always be (those)
arguments," Jones said. "But in
this province the government feels
the community has certain standards and there are certain kinds of
films that they don't feel should be
shown in local theatres where they
show sex films.
"Sometimes we get what we call a
'sex film' in here, and that would be
dealt with differently," she said.
"But even in a sex film there are
certain things we don't allow."
Jones is hesitant to define pornography. "It is, I suppose, a
judgement call in every case. I think
if you saw the pornography, you'd
understand a little better," she said.
Jones said the censor board is
most concerned about gratuitous
violence, violence towards women,
and the use of children in explicit
sex scenes or nude scenes.
"But these things are things that
you see in just an ordinary film.
Pornography is much more of a
perversion," she said.
A normal day at the censor board
consists of two or three panels of
five members each screening three
films. The 25-member board works
in shifts, each member working a
few days each week and receiving
$85 a day.
"I know that sounds like a lot of
money, but it's a very difficult
job," said Jones, who does not sit
on any of the review boards, but sits
on the appeal board that judges a
producer's appeal.
"Sometimes it's very stressful if
you're watching violent films all
day, and seeing certain scenes over
and over can be very stressful
psychologically," she said.
Jones doesn't worry much about
interfering with art and artists
through censorship. "Something
that's true art sometimes comes
through," she said.
"I've seen movies that were supposed to be artistic movies, and
they were boring, really boring, and
they claim it's art. Others are so
magnificent that you can recognize
it right away," she said.
She also defends the principle of
censorship. "If I said to you, 'Do
you want to see blood and gore and
nothing else of any consequence',
you'd say, 'That's not my kind of
movie," she explains.
"It's not that I'm opposed to
horror — there can be a little horror," said Jones, adding the film,
originally aimed at a teenage
market, is now restricted to adults
in Ontario.
Ann Jones is chillingly, authentically wholesome. It's somehow
difficult to imagine this sweet-
faced, grey-haired grandmother of
two actually watching films with an
eye peeled for sex, violence and
gore.
But someone has got to do it, and
it sure ain't going to be the people
of Ontario. . .

Expert advocates competition
By RICK HIEBERT
Canada should be careful to remain competitive in a protectionist
world, said a British International
trade expert Friday.
Susan Strange, head of the international relations at the London
School of Economics, told 100 people in Buchanan A106 that Canada,
which   is   dependent   on   primary
I
resources, will be at a disadvantage
in the coming period of change in
world trade.
"Canada has to think about the
best way to make her high-tech industries competitive," said Strange,
adding the United States will prosper because it is an industrial nation.
"Countries cannot afford to be
protectionist for too long," said
Strange. She added if North
America returns to a system of freer
trade, Canada must be able to compete effectively with international
markets.
The U.S.'s protectionist attitude,
said Strange, adversely affects current U.S.-Caftada free trade
negotiations.
"The Americans are saying one
thing (about trade) and doing
another — they are as protectionist
as anyone else," Strange said.
Strange went on to say the
Americans are excited about free
trade in services such as banking,
finances and insurance "where they
can think they can win, where they
are strong."
"The U.S. voter seems much
more protectionist than the politicians in Washington. They lack a
vision of a future trade system,"
she said.
She added the U.S. sees Canada
as an extension of the United
States, but Canadians won't admit
to it."
Canada may have chosen the
wrong partner for a free trade
agreement, Stange said.
"It would make more sense for
Canada to deal with the (European)
Common Market due to the sheer
advantage of dealing with countries
closer to its size, she said. Stange
also said that a strong Canadian
system of universities would help
improve Canada's chances in world
trade.
"Universities should be accessible to people of all ages," said
Strange, adding that nations that
have recently experienced industrial
boons such as Taiwan, Korea and
Japan, have made education a fiscal
responsibility.
She said if Canada finds itself
forced to be protectionist, it should
offer subsidies in health and education, rather than only subsidizing
industries.

Test takes its toll
Canadian University Press
and The Ubyssey Staff
HAMILTON (CUP) — Almost
half of the students who took a
new, mandatory writing competency test at McMaster University failed, raising questions about the
literacy of university-aged students.
Forty-two per cent of the first-
year students who took the test in
August failed, and 57 per cent of
those who took it a second time failed again in September.
"We are not talking about a high
level of competence to pass this test,
let me assure you," Betty Levy,
chair of the committee overseeing
the test, told The Globe and Mail.
"It's really looking at a person's
writing skills, and saying of someone who fails that this is a person
who really can't write a paragraph
very well."
In most faculties, a student must
pass the Test before entering third
year studies. In engineering,
students must pass before entering
their second year. The multiple
choice quiz tests skills in grammar,
vocabulary, clarity and organization.
The comparative results for
engineering and humanities
students were also surprising. While
66 per cent of the engineers passed
the first test, only 65 per cent of
their counterparts were successful,
according to student council president Mike Kukhta, an engineering
student.
At UBC, 55 arts students who did
not pass the English Composition
Test during their first three years
were not permitted to register in the
1987-87 winter session.
One hundred and thirteen
students were required to pass the
test last Spring. Of the 72 who
wrote the test, only 58 passed.
By JAMES YOUNG
Premier Bill Vander Zalm is the
lone hold-out in a proposed hour
long television debate on the future
of B.C. education.
While Liberal leader Art Lee,
NDP leader Bob Skelly and Conservative leader Jim McNeil are
prepared to participate in the
debate, Vander Zalm says the four
sponsoring groups should take the
$20,000 earmarked for the program
and donate it to education.
Responding to Vander Zalm's
refusal, Marg Fartaczek, chair of
the Pacific Region of the Canadian
Federation of students, said, "this
is a real insult to the students and
voters of the province."
"If the leader of any party
refuses to come out with policies,
then how can the people make an
intelligent choice," she said.
The proposed forum is sponsored*
by the CFS, the B.C. Teachers'
Federation, the College-Institute
Educators' Association and the
Confederation of Unibersity Faculty Associations of B.C.
At a press conference Oct. 3, the
groups said education directly affects more than 900,000 fulltime
and part-time students and teachers
in B.C., with a recent independent
poll placing it second only to
employment as an election issue.
At that time teachers' federation
president Elsie mcMurphy was optimistic Vander Zalm would participate in the forum.
"Mr. Vander Zalm has indicated
several times that he wants to have
open government," she said. "I
think this is an opportunity for him
to follow through on that."
All four groups said inadequate
funding of education was a primary
CFS chair Fartaczek said B.C.
has the lowest rate of participation
in post-secondary education in
Canada, namely 17 per cent compared to the national average of 25
per cent.
University faculty association
president Sidney Mindess said the
international reputation of B.C.
universities is already suffering as
faculty leave for better jobs.
"In the years from 1982/83 to
1985/86, B.C. has the worst funding record of university education
in North America," said Mindess.
In the last three academic years,
the operating grant to B.C. universities declined 9.7 per cent — the
only other state or province in
North America to experience a
decline in absolute dollar terms was
Texas, with a three per cent
decrease.
Fraser reconsiders debts
Post-secondary education
minister Russ Fraser told a Province
newspaper reporter over the
weekend that poor people should
go to school only if they can afford
it.
"Maybe they should put off their
education if they can't afford it,"
Fraser told the reporter.
But in a telephone interview
Monday, Fraser said he did not get
across what he intended to the
reporter.

TORONTO (CUP) — A group affiliated with the Unification Church
and its well-known founder
Reverend Sun Myung Moon has
been distributing anti-communist
literature to University of Toronto
students.
The pamphlet, produced by the
Collegiate   Association    for   the
Research of Principles (CARP),
says "Marxism resembles evil incarnate. It represents evil of a dimension which human history has never
before seen."
CARP vice-president Alan
Wilding, says "generally the student movement is very susceptible
to   ideas,   and    Marxism   as   an
Point politicians pontificate
Students will have an opportunity to meet and talk to provincial
election candidates for the Point Grey riding today at noon, in SUB
Auditorium.
"We're going to ask them one question on the state of post secondary education and what changes they would make in current
policy," said Carol Pedlar, Alma Mater Society external affairs coordinator and organizer of the event.
Pedlar hopes the meeting will be informative and not digress into a
shouting match between party supporters.
"We want to find out what the candidates think of the issues, we
don't want to turn it into a grandstand," she said.
Pedlar said students will benefit from the opportunity to assess the
different candidates before the election.
"I don't think anyone is very well informed about the election
because it was called so fast and because the governing party refuses
to say what they'll do if they are elected," she said.
Seven candidates representing four political parties are expected at
today's meeting. Present will be social credit candidates Pat McGeer
and Kim Campbell, Darlene Marzari and Dick Gathercole of the
NDP, Tom Brown and Doreen Braverman, Liberals, and Douglas
Dunn of the Green Party.
ideology has held a certain fascination for students in the last century,
and especially in the last decade.
Students of the sixties are now professors and the ideas that they are
promoting are closer to Marxism
then to a more democratic view.
"The aim of CARP is to expose
the faults of the
(Marxist-Leninist)ideology, not to
recruit members to the Unification
Church, though we do not
discourage that," Wilding said.
Responding to the fact that the
Unification Church is sometimes,
referred to as a 'cult', Wilding said
"anyone who is doing anything of
importance has always engendered
criticism. The word 'cult' is pe-
joritive, it's an excuse not to listen,
an excuse for non-think.
"At first the Jews were called a
cult, the Christians were also called
cults. Religious intolerance is
nothing new, and if we pretend we
are free from it in the 20th century
then we are sadly mistaken," he
said.
But according to Ian Haworth,
president of the Council on Mind
Abuse, the 'Moonies' fulfill
COMA's definition of a 'cult'.
should be aware of what they are
getting into before they decide on a
post-secondary education," said
Fraser, referring to high student
debt loads.
"I'm very supportive of post-
secondary education," he said.
The Ubyssey reported last week
that the average student debt load
for UBC students has skyrocketed
to $15,000 — up $12,000 from
1984. And students who borrow the
maximum amount could end up
with debts of up to $32,000, including principal and interest
payments.
Fraser said he is hoping to present a proposal on Canada loan
remissions to the federal govern
ment by the Spring of next year.
"I'm really interested in this,"
said Fraser. "None of us wants
students to graduate with high debt-
loads," he said.
Asked if he had heard of the campus foodbank planned for UBC
students who cannot afford to eat
after paying for the high cost of tuition, Fraser replied: "No, I haven't
heard about it, but I think the student government over there (the
AMS)  is  being -very  responsible.
Helping people is wonderful," said
Fraser.

been successful and the Sandinistas
want to entrench the changes as
quickly as possible so they can
never be undone.
"We visited cooperatives where
people had been tenant farmers in
straw shacks before the revolution
and had had to turn over a quantity
of their crops to their overlords.
They took over the land and farmed
it and over the last three years have
received title to it.
"The foundation of their enthusiasm is that the land they farm
and the land they defend is theirs,"
he said. "Everyone on the trip was
blown away by the enthusiasm, the
energy, the confidence in the countryside."
But he said the situation in
Managua, the capital city, isn't as
good. The city of 1 million (one
third of the country's population)
has many refugees from the war
zone, causing overcrowding and
measures such as staggered two-
day-a-week turning off of the water
supply.
Jones said inflation is horrific
and real wages haven't kept pace.
"Individuals are leaving 'good'
jobs to sell tortillas on street corners
because they can make more
money," he said.
He said in the last two or three
months the contras have begun to
attack foreigners especially.
"The people portrayed as the
right-wing military in the film
Salvador are no different from the
contra forces, 95 per cent of whose
leadership are ex-Nicaraguan national guard (security police)
members. They're cut-throats,
they're hitmen and they're
mercenaries."
He said there is some media censorship but "it's worth remembering there has never been anything
like the systematic oppression and
violence in other Latin American
countries."
He added many magazines and
journals are still allowed to publish
and El Nuevo Diarmo, the remaining independent daily newspaper, is
run by pre-revolution writers for La
Prensa, which was shut down
earlier this year. Page 4
THE    UBYSSEY

Backwards
There appears to be a growing number of people who
believe education should only be pursued for its economic
value. This is evident in the recent remarks made by post-
secondary education minister that only those students who
can afford the mounting costs of education should further
their schooling. Does this mean the Socred minister does not
feel that education is a purpose in its self?
Public education originated in the United States to educate
a largely ignorant population to the point where they were fit
to vote. The power to select a responsible govemment.was
meaningless unless the population was conscious of the
decisions it was making. It seems ironic the education system
is now being compromised by the government.
To take this absurd point of view it may be suspected that
the ruling bodies of this province are guilty of an attempt to
de-educate the public and hence eliminate the presence of
rigorous thought in this province. This ties into the Socred
refusal to hold open public debate before the provincial election. They expect the public to make rash, emotional decisions based solely on charisma. It should not be forgotten
that elections were meant to select the party with the
soundest policies, "not the best showmen.
If a society that produces cheap unquestioning labour is required — one that is good for business that profits by selling
raw resources — then we are heading in the right direction.
If, however, we want a society that caters to the individual, and requires that business be a means to the prosperity of the individual, not a means in itself, we are going
backwards.

Student sad as mob scene seals fate of debate
I was saddened by your Oct. 3
report on Bill Vander Zalm's visit
to UBC, where a mob scene took
the place of a proper debate on the
future of education in B.C. Education is an important issue, and how
we vote on this issue in the coming
provincial election should be based
on a rational evaluation of the
facts:
(1) Tuition plus student fees for a
student taking 18 units in arts,
science or education come to $1656
for 1986/87, compared to $630 in
1980/81, an increase of over a thousand dollars in 6 years — a direct
consequence of shrinking university
funding from the provincial govern
ment. B.C. university students now
pay the highest fees in Canada.
(2) The average debt load for
UBC students graduating in 1986 is
$15,000, compared to $3,000 in
1984. This 5-fold increase in 2 years
arose from the elimination of the
student grant program by the provincial government in 1984.
(3) Out of 25 Canadian universities surveyed, the average salary
for UBC faculty, which was ranked
2nd in 1981/82, plunged to 17th in
1985/86, causing a mass exodus of
our best faculty members. The
departure of our best professors,
the increased teaching load for the
remainder, the overcrowded
classes, and the decrease in new ac
quisitions of library books and
laboratory equipment, all led to a
drastic decline in the quality of
education at U.B.C.
(4) For our graduates, the job
prospects are grim. At 12.2 per
cent, B.C.'s unemployment rate is
nearly double that of Ontario.
The most important natural
resource of British Columbia is not
our forests, nor our minerals, nor
EXPO. It is our people. Only
education can develop the potential
of our most important natural
resource — a fact our provincial
government has consistently failed
to realize.
Billions were wasted on EXPO,
while the future of our people
crumbled    with    our    education
system. As members of this University, we must make education an
important issue in this coming election by writing letters to our
newspapers, and we must ask
whether the many years of misguided policies will be corrected by a
mere handsome face-change.

Commie pinko writers frustrated
Zalm shuns questions
The Socred 'evasion of issues'
policy has a new dimension after
Vander Zalm's UBC visit. It now
appears the Socreds intend to
decline prior notice of their leader's
public engagements in hopes of
avoiding anyone who might pose a
sincere or relevant question.
The man with the 'used car
salesman perma-grin' was escorted
around campus by a phalanx of 50
to 60 Socred youth (does UBC have
that many or were they bussed in?)
who seemed to be the only ones
with advance knowledge of their
leader's arrival. Only because I had
cut classes early did I happen upon
the commotion in the SUB and was
able to join in the chorus of
"Socreds Out".
Another low in democracy has
been reached when a premier lacks
enough gumption to give sufficient prior notice of a public appearance, in order to cover up his
lack of popularity. Cameras rolled
and another media event gave the illusion of a majority of enthusiastic
and admiring followers on campus,
while in reality, the vast majority of
students detest the prospect of
another 'bill' for the Socreds'
deplorable fare. Allan Davidson
agriculture 2
The frustrations of the radical
leftists who write for The Ubyssey is
understandable: British Columbia
now has a populist free enterprise
leader who is attracting student support in droves, and is well on his
way to winning the largest electoral
majority in B.C. history. However,
The Ubyssey's attempts to stifle the
public demand for Bill Vander
Zalm are nothing short of
despicable.
Under the guise of responsible
journalism, the so-called reporters
who covered the premier's tour of
UBC on October  1  misconstrued
the entire morning's events to suit
their own political purposes.
The reporter estimated the group
of young Socreds at 100; even the
Vancouver Sun said there were 200
young Socreds, and the actual
crowd was pushing 500. Giving the
opposition people 30 was exceptionally generous, there were
perhaps 15 of them, most of whom
were not UBC students.
As the premier moved through
the campus, hundreds of students
who were uninvolved in the partisan
mob pushed through  to catch a
glimpse of the premier and to shake
his hand. This was very clear on the
evening news, but obviously The
Ubyssey students don't watch TV.
Bill Vander Zalm's visit to UBC
was indeed a landmark; a Social
Credit leader visited campus, and
was mobbed by enthusiastic
students. The Ubyssey's desperate
attempt at revisionist history is
deplored by all students who
cherish responsible and fair journalism.

Irish wake marks education's demise
THE UBYSSEY
October 7, 1986
The Ubyssey is published Tuesday and Friday
throughout the academic year by the Alma Mater Society of the University of British Columbia. Editorial opinions are those of the staff and are not necessarily those
of the administration or the AMS. Member Canadian
University Press. The Ubyssey's editorial office is SUB

David Ferman, host of Jeoparody, read off the categories for the second round: "The top;cs are
Biology, Ruskin night spots, Nuclear Physics, Anthropology, Nervous N.D.P. leaders, Engineering and
Famous Ubyssey Staffers. Since Rick Hiebert is last with $-25,000, he starts this round."
"Famous Ubyssey Staffers for $200."
"This Ubyssey staffer shares the same last name as a former Prime Minister who always wore bow
ties, even in the shower."
"Who is Peter MacDougall?" answered Hiebert.
"Who is Malcolm Pearson?" asked Jennifer Lyall, who was hoping for copy of the home game."
Famous Ubyssey Staffers for $400."
"This Ubyssey staffer relaxes by reading Ovid in Latin, skydiving nude and by counting Bill Vander-
Zap's election promises."
"Who is Evelyn Jacob?" answered Hiebert.
"Who is Corinne Bjorge?" answered Lyall.
"I'm sorry," said Ferman, "the correct question is 'Who is Michael Groberman' Now its time for
Final Jeoparody. The answer is 'This Ubyssey staffer will probably say "This is the stupidest staff box
I've ever read! The gomer who wrote it should be shot!"
As a witness to Mr. Vander
Zalm's fumbling with note cards
when Liberal leader Art Lee confronted the premier over the issue
of education, it comes as no surprise that Socreds do not want to
debate.
Poor Vander Zalm had nothing
to offer this province or university
in any concrete measure to stop
B.C. from becoming an educational
backwater. While Vander Zalm
read note cards, Lee continued to
press him on the fact that federal
government monies were still being
diverted from education.
The father of restraint in education gave a speech at Sedgewick
Library to a busload of his supporters and concerned students.
The premier's speech went as far as
saying "We want to work together
with you."
Unfortunately, judging from the
premier's track record on education
I do not think too many students or
educators will want to work towards
their own demise. No concrete proposals were offered from- the
premier to alleviate the problems of
overcrowding in classes and student
debt loads.
It's a bad time to be a youth in
B.C. We have a premier who wants
to re-examine minimum wage in the
service sector as a means of wiping
it out. The fact is that the majority
of people occupy low paying jobs in
the service sector and some are suf
fering from declining standards and
resources at UBC. Perhaps that is
why the premier has emphasized his
commitment to lower the price of
beer, so that his young supporters
will have something in which to
drown their sorrows.
John Pennant

Socreds prevent B. C.
from unmasking populism
The wheel is being reinvented —
again. This time by Bill Vander
Zalm in the form of populism. We
don't have to look too far back in
history to learn the lessons of
populism — the name of the European brand this century is now
synonymous with dicatatorship.
Ergo history and education can be
dangerous for populists, so tell
poor people they don't deserve
higher education.
And so we have the following
quote from Russ Fraser, the Social
Credit minister for post-secondary
education,  "Those who can't af
ford it should examine their
priorities before jumping head first
into huge debt through student
loans."
So beware if you have a large student loan: the Socreds don't think
you should really be at university.
After all, why worry about trying to
provide jobs for graduates when
you can give the people circuses and
cake instead. Populism is no
substitute for democracy, with all
its faults.

Elitism blinkers student
After I finished swearing concerning the article "Let starving leave
UBC", and my more rational side
took over, I saw clearly that it was
written for the purpose of sensationalism. However, I have decided
to take the bait.
The economic status of many
UBC students is dismal, so John
Foster, author of above stated article, should take off his blinkers and
look around. Grants have been
eliminated since 1982, while rents,
food, and tuition fees have since increased. It is obvious that a university education is now for the elite,
which in my eyes, is highly unfair.
If the AMS were to set up a food-
bank I'm sure it would»be well appreciated and used with proper
discretion. As for John's belief that
the AMS foodbank would be abused, and his statement "I eat well, I
would certainly take free handouts", I would strongly recommend
that he review his morals.
Any students with a little extra
time per week, please contact the
AMS. We could use a little positive
energy in organizing a student food-
bank.

U.S. timber tariffs will hurt B. C. economy
The imposition of an American
tariff on Canadian softwood
lumber will adversely affect all
Canadians, particularly British Columbians. This province derives approximately half of its revenue from
the forests. A U.S. tariff will cripple B.C.'s most important industry.
In order to protect its domestic
lumber interests, the U.S. government is forcing the huge American
housing industry and others to pay
more for B.C. lumber. U.S.
builders prepared a report, proving
that a lumber tariff will eliminate
more jobs in the housing industry
than it will save in the U.S. forest
sector. Since the release of that
report last year, the American housing industry has remained relatively
quiet on the tariff issue.
If B.C. lumber customers in the
U.S. are willing to pay more to try
to keep the extra dollars generated
by a tariff — by imposing a lumber
export duty on this side of the
border. The revenue generated by
the duty could then be put back in
the forest industry, perhaps as a
fund to help the forest companies
refinance the huge capital debts
they incurred during the recession.

Speaking of tulip bulbs one
wonders if they could be put to
magical use in knocking some sense
into the empty heads of that
amateur BCTV group that follow
the very capable, patient and handsome NDP leader, Bob Skelly
around. One wonders how they get
their kicks!
Little wonder Jack Webster, probably out of sheer desperation, with
all that mediocrity around him -
started a scholarship for journalists.
Their chippy attitude toward Mr.
Skelly has nothing whatever to do
with him but everything to do with
them. Their frustration, inadequacies and inabilities are showing
because they cannot get their little
media darling Bill Vander Zalm to
say what he means, which for some
strange reason, they find harder to
do than nailing jelly to a wall.

toward prosperity as did the
Western European social democrats
just a few short years ago. They
made it the most prosperous and
happy place on the face of the earth
to live. But, ouch, just look what
the conservative capitalists have
done to it now; and to the whole of
the western world for that matter!
When Bob Skelly says, "Bill
Vander Zalm talks like a New
Democrat before the election and
acts like a Socred after", that in
essence is what is meant.
Most people of the world are very
disillusioned, very sick and wish to
distance themselves from the USSR
communist and U.S. capitalist
heavies who never stop agitating,
stirring things up, not giving us a
minutes peace — in their never ending disruptive struggle — to keep
wealth in the hands of 5 per cent of
the people, in both political systems
— while the remainder get nothing.
Bill Vander Zalm is a vengeful
power-thirsty lone player who grins
because he thinks there are voters
foolish enough to let him waltz
right in and become a dictator. He
quit his own government scolding
and scoffing at the Socred team
players, calling them names like
"weak-kneed" and "gutless" for
being out of step with him. His confrontational style in all three
poorly-served Social Credit
ministerial portfolios was so
forceful that it netted him a pie in
the face — or was it two?
Bennett crippled the province of
British Columbia with restraint.
Vander Zalm has promised to kill it
with his "renewal" of restraint. He
is Bill Bennet multiplied ad infinitum.
Capitalist, right winger Vander
Zalm is so frightingly ruthless that
he makes Atilla the Hun Look like

Rink 'Birds beat Canucks
By DAVID FERMAN
The Vancouver Canucks lost
their sixth pre-season game last
Wednesday night in front of a
delighted standing-room only Vancouver crowd.
Not cynical, disloyal fans but
staunch supporters of the home
team Thunderbirds. Yes, six to five
in a quick-paced, entertaining
match.
Before you go clamoring for a
Point Grey NHL franchise it should
be noted the teams switched
defences and goaltenders.
The first period was a slow affair
with the Canucks scoring the lone
goal and outshooting the Birds 12
to seven, despite lacking a definite
tentorial advantage. The game saw
some good full length rushes, lots
of missed passes and almost no
whistles.
Ex-Canuck Darcy Rota said,
"You could call it a gentleman's
period of hockey, no hitting. But I
guess it's a good opportunity for
Field hockey
'Birds mix weekend
It was a mixed weekend for UBC
men's field hockey. All three teams
were in action on Saturday afternoon in the Vancouver League with
varied success.
In a poorly refereed and chippy
game, the varsity team lost a close
game one-nothing to Richmond.
Dave Smith played particularly well
in goal despite the loss.
In the second division, the junior
varsity team tied with the Grasshoppers one-one. Cam Wallace scored
the lone UBC goal.
The third division UBC team
salvaged the weekend with a strong
two-nothing win over West Vancouver. George Saunders notched
two goals in the win.
the Birds to see how they stand. If
professional hockey was played like
this I'd still be playing."
The second period got off to a
more energetic start with Paul Abbott making a speedy end to end
rush and Scott Fearns' decking
Steve Tambelini with a heavy body
check.
At 4:18 Bruce Pritchard banged
in a rebound during a scramble
around the net and tied things up.
Gradually the pace picked up as
Taylor Hall barely missed. He put
the puck through Wendell Young's
pads only to watch it go through the
crease after a deft Tony Tanti pass
in the circle. But Tanti was redeemed a few minutes later when after a
face off he ripped a wrist shot along
the ice for what looked like an effortless goal.
"The second period saw few
whistles but uncalled tripping got
out of hand. And after forty
minutes the Canucks led two to
one.
At 1:24 of the third, Thunderbird
forward Mark Trotzuk stole a page
from the Tony Tanti book of dekes
and slipped a beautiful goal in from
the right circle.
The move proved to the fans the
T-Birds have undeniable talent and
the friendly scrimmage took on a
higher meaning. Despite being out-
shot, the birds were determined to
make it a close contest.
Suddenly the "gentleman's
game" got nasty and trouble began.
After some chippy play between
Kevin Griffin and Jim Sandlak the
gloves came off.
Griffin promtly hoisted Sandlak
off the ice and dumpted him back
down. Only a few punches were
thrown and the two were quickly
separated.
The third period saw no checking. Canuck winger Crawford
scored and then the Steve Baker
show started.  At  9:16 the 'Birds

winger snapped one by Canuck
goalie Frank Caprice. Eleven
seconds later he flew past Craig
Coxe and shoveled a backhand rebound past a stunned Caprice.
The tally mounted and the Birds
seemed to be steamrolling over the
pros, leading six to three. But in the
last five minutes the Canucks offence controlled the puck.
They scored for the fourth time
with Crawford's second goal and
with 2:27 left Dave Bruce put the
Canucks within one goal. With one
minute left the Canucks pulled
Caprice and swarmed around the
Birds' net. The Birds held on
despite being outshot 53 to 26.
Birds coach Terry O'Malley was
pleased with the Birds but admitted
he was mainly watching the other
guys.
"Overall our defence and forwards were strong. They knew they
had to be alert with the skill level
they faced," he said.
O'Malley said the game stand
outs were Wendell Young and Birds
goalie Carl Repp who played one
and a half periods.
O'Malley added there was not
much hitting.
"You are trying to refine skills.
You want to try to square off
against the other guy's in the end
zones, rather than annihiliate the
other guys," said O'Malley.
The proceeds from the scrimmage went to the Father David
Bauer Hockey Scholarship Fund.
This past weekend the Birds
finished third in the Empress Cup in
Regina. They lost to the eventual
Cup champs, Calgary, six to one
and beat the host Regina six to
four.

UBC footballers bounce 'Bison
By PETER BERLIN
UBC quarterback Jordan Gagner
picked the University of Manitoba
defence apart at the seams in
Thunderbird Stadium as he passed
for 238 yards to steer the 'Birds to a
21-10 victory.
The victory ran the 'Birds record
to five wins in five Western Intercollegiate Football League matches
this season and enabled them to
stay at number one in the national
SPORTS
rankings.
Even though the 10-point winning margin was their narrowest of
the season the 'Birds were only
briefly threatened after they exploded for 14 points in the second
quarter. The first 15 minutes were
fairly even. The Bison made good
progress banging the ball up the
middle with a short passing and
running game.
By the end of the game the Bison
had   gained    169   yards   on   the
ground; 30 more than the 'Birds.
But the 'Birds enjoyed massive
throwing superiority. Bison
quarterback Doug Lynch managed
only 149 yards through the air and
threw three interceptions.
Lynch was fine with short passes
but the weakness of his arm and the
strength of the 'Birds secondary
meant the only long completions he
threw were to defenders. Mark Nor
man picked off two passes to run
his total for the season to seven: the
best in the conference.
Frank Smith, the 'Birds coach,
had spotted a weakness in the
Bison secondary watching
films during the week. Gagner went
to work on their seams in the second quarter hitting Mike Bellefon-
taine twice.
He followed that with a 26-yard
completion to tight end Tom Vlasic
which carried the 'Birds to the
Bisons four-yard line. Two plays
later Terry Cochrane banged it in
from the two.
After 12 and a half minutes ofthe
second quarter UBC struck again.
Bruce McDonald returned a kick 33
yards to put the 'Birds in range.
Gagner then dumped a short pass to
tight end Rob Ros who swept right
to complete a 20-yard touch-down
in   the   corner.   Carey   Bymoen,
UBC's field goal kicker made no
mistake with his second conversion.
Briefly in the fourth quarter the
Bison hauled themselves into the
match. They plodded down to the
'Birds goal-line. UBC stopped them
on a second and one but were
penalized. But on their third attempt the Bison rammed the ball
over for a major. Manitoba scored
on a convert and then added
another single on a 65 yard kick-off
to pull within six points of UBC.
Gagner responded with a 20 yard
completion to Ros in the soft area
on the right of the Bison secondary
and then fullback Mass Geremia
gained two first downs with a sweep
to the left and a reception to move
the 'Birds within field goal range.
Bymoen made no mistake from 23
yards.
Bymoen completed scoring with a
20-yard field goal.

UBC SOCCER PLAYER keeps his eye on the ball.
rory alien photo
By SVETOZAR KONTIC
The UBC mens soccer team won
a pair of games at home this
weekend against prarie opposition
to remain both undefeated and the
number one ranked team in
Canada.
On Friday afternoon the 'Birds
defeated Calgary two to nothing in
a rough physical affair.
"It will be the most rugged game
we have all year," said UBC coach
Dick Mosher.
Mosher said Calgary has always
been a physical team but the referee
was partly responsible for letting
the game get away.
"The referee could have called a
much tighter game. By allowing the
chippiness to continue he let the
game get out of hand," said
Mosher.
Gregor Young scored on a set
play, once again proving the effectiveness of UBC special teams. Ken
Mullaney scored the other goal.
On Saturday UBC went on a
scoring binge rolling over a weak
Lethbridge side seven to nothing.
Mike Allina and John Gasperac
scored two goals each while Byron
Gayfor, Steve Burns and Kevin Colbow added singles.
UVIC women squelch 'Birds hopes
By GLORIA LOREE
The UBC women's field hockey
team won its first two games but
lost to UVIC to finish second in this
weekends Canada west tournament
in Victoria.
The team shone on Saturday
afternoon when they beat the
University of Calgary five to
nothing. Joni Franks opened scoring early in the first half, followed
by Jody Blaxland's four smashing
goals. Blaxland scored off two
penalty comer plays and free play.
"We finally connected as a unit
and played as a real team," said
Blaxland.
The first game on Sunday against
the University of Alberta was a
struggle for the 'Birds, who were
down one-nil at the half. The 'Birds
fought their way back to victory
with an outstanding effort from
both the defence and offence.
Laura Farres prevented a two-
nothing score when she saved a sure
goal from off the line, while Blaxland and Franks went on to score
two goals and a single respectively.
Coach Gail Wilson said, "We did
not have a good game against
Alberta because, in my opinion, we
were concentrating on the UVIC
game that afternoon."
The 'Birds, having lost one-
nothing to UVIC two weeks ago,
seemed to be afraid to play their offensive game. UVIC scored the
game's only goal on a" penalty corner
play mid-way through the first half.
The second half saw many scor
ing opportunities for the 'Birds, including a shot rebounding off
UVIC's goal post. But they were
unable to put the ball in the net.
"We were unlucky. But then
UVIC played very well — they shut
down our key players," said
Wilson.
The victory put UVIC solidly in first
place, for UBC to have a chance for
first place, UVIC would have to lose
two of their three games at the final
Canada West Tournament, which will
be hosted by UBC in two weeks time.

Mosher said being able to score a
bunch of goals had given the team a
real boost.
"We really managed to convert
our chances in the game. If we've
had a weakness at all this year it's
been putting the ball in the net,"
said Mosher.
UBC's next game will be on
Wednesday against the Simon
Fraser University Clansmen in the
Diachem Bowl here on campus.
"Its going to be an excellent
game. SFU plays a fairly similar
style to us. They like to use the
ball," said Mosher.
Despite being at the top UBC has
no real security as only one team,
the division champion, move to on
the CIAU championships in Toronto.
"The winner in the final game of
the season between us and Victoria
will go on to the nationals in Toronto. That's the whole thing about the
Canada West League. All you have
to do is make one slip and its all
over," said Mosher.
"The only time we will possibly
be able to relax is if we go into the
final game in Victoria three or more
points up."
Mike Allina and Kevin Riley are
the 'Birds latest injury casualties.
"What these injuries do is take
away our various number of positional possibilities. Kevin Riley can
play both forward and defensive
positions. He has been a mainstay
on the team for several years now,"
said Mosher.
