Letters engage in distortion
Although temporarily left
speechless by Barbara Waldern's
hypocrisy in last Tuesday's issue of
The Ubyssey, I feel I must comment
on the diversity of ethics she
manages to employ in her two letters to the editors.
In the first, she accused the
Ubyssey highmindedly of not having "Journalistic ethics", and
speaks of "Grave violations"
thereof, not to mention "Blatant
Lies". This leaves me cold.
Everyone knows, and should know
that any newspaper should be taken
with a good dose of salt and a big
sense of humor.
Whether or not I should have
read you letters with a big sense of
humor, Ms. Waldern, is not entirely
clear to me yet. To put it more
clearly, your letters are self contradictory. You see, Ms. Waldern
you engage in an incredible case of
verbal distortion.
Verbal distortion is a neat game,
especially if you manage to convince yourself of your warped
method of communicating as a conclusion. But let us realize that at a
University, Ms. Waldern, we are
not all subject to blindly swallowing
the garbage you try and feed us.
Your second letter is with regards
to the six U.S. Naval craft that will
be docking in Vancouver Harbour
during the Vancouver Peace
Festival.
You say that "Five of these are
nuclear and capable, and most likely nuclear armed." This is an
assumption you do not support
with fact.
Then you continue with
"... will probably have arrived

directly from testing their weapon
systems at Nanoose Bay . . . "
Again you state assumption, not
fact. Are we to infer from this that
Vancouver Harbour will be turned
into a testing site for nuclear
weapons?
You speak of "... So called ally . . ." Who is calling whom an ally? Who is not? Are you the judge?
When you speak of Vancouver city council welcoming "the officers
of U.S. warships, armed to the
teeth with nuclear weapons". Does
it not strike you as odd, Ms.
Waldern, that you started off with
an assumption, that turned into fact
over the course of one paragraph?
Does "Armed to the teeth with
nuclear weapons" have reference to
their reactor cores that cause the
ship to go from A to B?
Last, you call upon some
unknown, unnamed entity taking
up the "task of stopping all U.S.,
Soviet and other aggressive warships from using Vancouver Harbour."
May I ask, since when is Vancouver City, or Canada for that
matter, subject to aggression by
U.S., Soviet or other aggressive
warships? Why would Vancouver
city council welcome these inferred
enemies?
Of course, Ms. Waldern, these
are rhetorical questions that require
no answer at all. And certainly, you
are going to justify yourself in your
next epic.
Be assured that the material you
have presented us is a classic example of subversion in journalism,
equally condoned in your little
book of ethics of the press. We will
give you the benefit of the doubt
and assume that you didn't arrive at
that particular chapter yet. Or did
you?
Please return from whence you
came and come to terms with your
own reality before you again try
and distort ours. Your just and vain
causes are empty and without a
doubt distorted as well.

The first thing they met was CUTBACKS.
UBC entered its seventieth year with more
problems than it has ever had. Enrolment
restrictions, giant classrooms, and mounting
student debts all helped to set the mood for
'86.
Fighting cutbacks in education became a
major priority. The bad news began when the
department of finance was forced to cut $3.2
JOE    STUDENT . . . "Buddy,
can you spare a loan?"
million from UBC's operating budget, due to
a decrease in funds from the Universities
Council of B.C.
The vice-president of finance suspected
that a freeze will have to be placed on wages
of non-salaried workers.
The cuts continued.
There were less library hours available this
year due to cutbacks in funding, which led to
overcrowded classrooms. Seats were already
hard to find in the second week of classes.
But overcrowded rooms were not confined to
the library.
There were less seats available in English
100 classes and Chemistry labs this year.
Overall enrolment increased in 1986, but no
extra staff was hired to offset the increase
because of budget cuts.
It might seem that the provincial government does not like students, but Vancouver
residents do. A survey commissioned by the
Federation of Faculty Association showed
more than one-third of lower mainland
residents believe government cutbacks
threaten the quality of education in B.C.
Residents continue to show sympathy
towards students' pleas for better education.
Nearly one-half of residents polled were willing to pay higher taxes towards quality
education.
The provincial government, however, was
not satisfied with cutting funds to local
students, so they went for visa students too.
Victoria hatchers hoped to remove medical
services plan coverage for visa students and
workers, which forced B.C. students to protest the harsh government scheme.
Even research lost its appeal to the Feds,
who failed to approve a 5-year plan of the
Natural Sciences and Engineering Research
Council.
NSERC grants provide most of the money
for research at UBC.
On a brighter, although confusing note,
the Province announced a $110 million "Ex-
Jl   s another academic year comes to a grinding halt, the warm air of summer draws the Ubyssey in-
Mk  to its annual hibernation.
J \        But before staffers retreat to playland, they would like to reminisce with students about the
fj^       important campus news that happened this year.
While students were lining up at registration week in September, a host of issues were already brewing
behind university doors anxiously waiting for the pitter-patter of eager Ubyssey reporters.
cellence in Education" fund to be allocated
over the next three years for education.
Although the 86-87 provincial budget provides universities with a 0.1 per cent increase
in funding compared to last year, after accounting for a four percent inflation rate,
there is little encouraging news for struggling
universities.
As spring arrived, students became feistier:
April 1 was named Provincial Day of Concern for post-secondary education. B.C. Student societies joined Eastern Canadian institutions to protest government underfunding in education.
Things did not improve for UBC even at
the end of term.
The UBC operating budget was short
$330,000 this fiscal year, despite a $567,000
grant from the Universities Council of B.C.
in late December.
But eager new UBC president David
Strangway lobbied Victoria for university
funding for next fiscal year.
Student loan debts were another area of
concern for financially-strapped students.
Students with student loans who graduated
in 1985 had a debt loan of up to $10,000, up
$6,200 from 1984.
And the director of UBC's financial
awards painted an even gloomier future for
students graduating in '87. He estimates by
then, the average debt of a student will be
close to $20,000. Out of 113 graduates
surveyed this year, 81 per cent had debts of
over $8,000.
While all is quiet on the UBC front, NDP
leader Bob Skelly got mad at the provincial
government. He said universities are becoming restricted to the rich, criticizing the high
cost of education in the province.
The idealist says his party's goal is to
eliminate tuition for post-secondary education.
To break from the dullness of grey
November, 15 students from Okanagan College occupied the premier's office in
Kelowna, and refused to leave until Bennett
agreed to a public meeting with students over
the students aid program.
But Bill knew how to handle the students:
he blamed high tuition fees on faculty and
salary increases.
Meanwhile, shrinking loans and rising tuition costs forced UBC and SFU students to
join other B.C. residents at the foodbank.
Hungry students ate tinned food located at
all retail food outlets on campus. Money tins
were placed in pubs and restaurants for those
who can spare a dime.
To add to the pain, UBC's Board of governors proposed a four per cent rise in tuition
fees for next year. Many students believe
pushing up fees is the single worst action the
board could take.
Students continued to feel alienated from
government in '85, over a visit by Socred
members of caucus on campus in December.
While MLAs dined on "hoity-toity hors
d'oevres" at the faculty club, students protesting outside offered members a student aid
diet from a soup kitchen instead. The MLA-
er's chose to protect themselves by hiding inside the hall of fame.
A vocal AMS external affairs coordinator
said the MLA's were interested in aspects of
university which do not include students.
Well, the Board of governors weren't kidding about tuition hikes. A four per cent increase was approved by the board on the
grounds that the increase would simply equal
the rate of inflation.
As the truth slowly leaked out, students
learned that most of the "Excellence in
education" fund will go towards "special initiatives" rather than to improving the quality of education.
Bennett told students he will consult
siudents and faculty to determine local
needs, but then he proceeded to remind them
that all allocations will be made by cabinet.
Talk about double talk.
February rang in the federal budget, which
finds Michael Wilson still in the Christmas
spirit. His generous budget gave $50 for most
impoverished college and university students,
which will alleviate all of their problems.
As if students did not have enough to cry
about, 1985 did not present favourable news
for the vast numbers of unemployed on campus.
A study showed that 4,000 jobless students
in B.C. decided not to return to university
last fall because they did not get summer
jobs, and were consequently unable to pay
for the high cost of education.
To offset the gloomy news, the minister of
education came to the rescue with a work-
study program which provided 500 hundred
part-time jobs for students. Lucky students
made $8.00 per hour for doing anything from
research assistance to sitting in front of
library turnstiles.
While students scraped for jobs last year,
AMS executives got rich over the summer.
They made up to $7,000 from summer jobs
even though they could not finish them.

TWO UBC •.tuderus, one a
woman with dark hair and
matching complexion and
the other a man with blond
hair and pale complexion
have just met and nervously
walk into the first meeting
of the international house sponsored buddy system. Swind^ and
Paul, who have been paired in the
cross-cultural communication program are immediately greeted by
the warm and welcoming smiles of
program organisers.
Swinder is immediately barraged
with slowly asked questions on her
mother country and listens patiently
while Paul is hurriedly asked which
part of India Swinder comes from.
But, it is Swinder who interrupts
in perfect English to say Paul is the
one who is new to Canada.
The above stereotype is unfortunately a commonly held one in
which international students are
viewed as exotic and rich, coloured,
students who come from third
world nations.
The stereotype however does not
hold at UBC where the largest component of UBC's 934 international
students comes from Rambo-land.
In 1985/86 19.7 per cent of international students came from the U.S.
the next largest number came from
the People's Republic of China at
only 9.31 per cent, and the United
Kingdom was the third at 8.6 per
cent. Students from Hong Kong
make up the next position at 7.92
per cent. And together with the next
largest donor India, at 5.24 per
cent, the five countries make up 50
per cent of all UBC international
students.
Although international students
make up only about 3.5 per cent of
UBC's total student population
UBC's administration believes there
are enough of them to justify the
current differential fee, implemented in 1985, of 2.5 times the
Canadian student fee. Every bit of
money counts at UBC, even when
only 211 students out of about
25,000 are paying the fee.
Simon Fraser University and the
University of Victoria have placed
differential fees of 2.5 times the
Canadian student fee respectively.
Graduate students are exempt horn
the differential.
Across Canada international student fees range from $4,200 and
$10,200 with Ontario charging the
highest rate. Only Manitoba, Newfoundland and Saskatchewan do
not currently charge differential
fees.
Differential fees coupled with the
provincial government's removal of
medical coverage for visa students
have given international students an
impression that they are unwanted
abusers of the Canadian education
system.
"I get the feeling there is a growing feeling against foreign
students," says Omkara Nalamasu,
a chemistry graduate student and
teaching assistant who arrived at
UBC, Sept. '82.
Nalamasu believes it was "pretty
mean" of the Socred government to
change the definition of a B.C. resident in order to make international
students ineligible for provincial
medical coverage, and added it is
unfair that international students
must pay Canadian social program
taxes but cannot benefit from them
But Nalamasu says time prevents
him from "doing anything about
it."
UBC is currently organizing a
collective medical coverage plan
which will require all international
students to pay for medical
coverage when they have registered
in the fall.
Federally, visa students were
spared from a new $50 visa processing fee as part of an immigration
"cost recovery" program. The fee
was deferred for students until
another study is completed. Walter
Maclean, Canadian immigration
minister, justified the increase by
saying "Canadian taxpayers should
not be expected to continue subsidizing non-residents."
The new fee would have also
directly contradicted the federal
senate committee report on youth
released in February which urges
the problems of foreign students to
be examined and "eased".
Problems identified in the report
include:

THE   UBYSSEY
Thursday, April 3,1986
Over EXPOsed
This summer many UBC students will enjoy or endure the farcical, inappropriate, big, brash and boring mega-monster Expo 86 — the world gala
extravaganza of transportation and communication.
The fact is, we're stuck with it. It's a big party none of us were invited to.
No students, evictees, retirees, underpaid or jobless workers can afford the
ticket prices. Yet we are paying for this corporate Disneyland that will
show the world that our bosses can stomp workers with the best of 'em.
No, we don't life in South Korea or Russia or any place with totalitarian
working conditions. Expo, however, is part of the Socred plan to make an
entire generation accept no rights on the job, — $800 a month as good
money and five bucks an hour as fair pay — not for your first job but even
for your fourth or fifth.
Expo will literally cease to exist in half a year. No concrete benefits will
come from it except to the big boys like Pattison, Kaiser and Rogers.
Our hope lies within the growing anger of public service workers who
don't buy the Socreds' "partnership" plan for recovery at the expense of
jobs and are willing to fight for it. In the meantime, cheat on your SkyTrain
fare and your welfare claim and organize.
You deserve bread not circuses.

God likes the big questions
As I walked across the plaza in
front of the SUB at 3:30 p.m.,
Tuesday, March 18, I could not help
but notice a small crowd gathered
around a man in an overcoat carrying a black book. As a result of my
curiosity I ventured closer for a
look. On approaching the crowd,
my suspicions were confirmed; it
was a Christian evangelist.
By the time I arrived there was little in the way of prepared preaching
and more of a question and answer
session. I heard many questions,
some very good, some rather defensive, and others totally ignorant of
any kind of "human" courtesy,
and I could not help but admire this
man for the amount of patience he
showed.
Being a Christian (although not
necessarily totally agreeing with the
evangelist's approach, but nevertheless, sympathetic to the basic
cause) I had to ask myself how I
would respond to these people.
The majority of the questions I
heard were of the type: "Why can't
I do this?", or "Why is that
wrong?", or "Why does God
disapprove of this?". To me these
are little questions compared to the
much bigger questions: "How can I
Grade points fail
A letter that you published on
UBC's grading system (Ubyssey,
March 25) expressed disappointment that "some old guards in the
Senate" had "staunchly defended
our system." The "old guard"
whom your correspondent quoted
was myself, and the quotation —
from a previous Ubyssey — did not
represent what I had actually said at
the last Senate meeting.
At this Senate meeting I
acknowledged that our present scale
of 150 was unnecessarily eccentric,
and I endorsed the proposal for a
percentage system. What I argued
against was the grade point system,
and it was in that context that I suggested that in matters of this kind
there is much to be said for a wise
conservatism and for the assertion!
of institutional and national individuality.
I can still see no reason for UBC
to adopt the grade point system.
With a percentage system, and with
an indication of what percentages
denote A, B, C, etc., our transcripts
would be fully intelligible to other
universities. The only argument I
have heard in favour of the grade
system is that it is common
elsewhere in North America. A case
that is based on the principle of
conformity should always be
regarded with suspicion.

know God?", and "What should I
do?".
Once we know God, then we can
put our faith and love in Him and it
will no longer be a case of what we
can or cannot do, but rather, how
can we please Him.
God created heaven and earth
and He created you and me. He
came to earth and made Himself
known. He suffered (at the hands
of those obsessed with little questions), died and then rose from the
dead. By His dying and rising he
made it possible for all of us to die
and rise with Him.
How do we die and rise with
Him? (a big question) Merely by accepting this gift of eternal life that
He offers and by obeying Him. By
putting Him first over the "world"
He will put you and me in His
Kingdom.
I sincerely believe that if you have
a genuine desire to know God, pick
up a Bible and begin reading the
New Testament, then God will
reveal Himself to you, He will show
you that Christ is my saviour and
yours too, and the little questions
will get smaller and smaller.

Well, another year has come to
an end.
The staffers at the vilest rag west
of Bianca have enjoyed bringing
you the news, views, and reviews
this year. We had a lot of fun and
learned a lot, too — we are
students, after all.
One of the things we learned is
that we cannot please everyone, so
we don't try. We have our own opinions, and make our share of
mistakes. And believe it or not, we
can be very open-minded.
So next year (or this summer, all
you potential summer Ubyssey staffers!), as you merrily masticate your
lunch, aghast at the latest Ubyssey-
editorial-which-is-supposed-to-re-
present-student-views-but-doesn't,
please let us know how you feel.
You don't have to limit your involvement to writing a letter,
though that's a great start. If you
care about the idea of a student
newspaper, by all means do
something about it. Become a
Ubyssey volunteer — commit as
much or as little time as you want.
If we can do it, anyone can, right?
If you're intimidated by a flock of
bleeding-heart lefties, bring some
friends — the more the better.
Because, regardless of political
perspective, the most important
thing is producing a newspaper
with an alternative view — that of
students.
Try it. Chances are you'll have a
lot of fun, and learn something too.
Slurrp, slurrp, ghhhssht, slurp,
sukkk.

NATO remains a good place to make friends
The letter from Barbara Waldern
titled "Vancouver harbours warships" was a perfect example of the
ability of people to distort political
issues. Ms. Waldern feels that
friendly ties between the Canadian,
American, and NATO navies is an
example of gunship diplomacy
against Canada and that Canada
has been intimidated by larger
states into its participation.
Ms. Waldern even goes so far as
to speculate that Western Canada
could be bombarded by naval attacks similar to those that took
place in Lebanon. From these
statements, one can see that Barb
Waldern is a very paranoid person
who fails to see issues clearly.
Canada and its NATO allies have
worked together for decades in
peace and Canada has never had
anyreason to fear attacks from its
partners, rather, NATO has produced a great friendship between
Western Nations who have desired
freedom and democracy. Contrary
to Ms. Waldern's statement that
Canada has been "dictated" into
being in the alliance, Canada was
one of the original members in the
alliance and has remained in it by its
own voluntary actions. Through a
strong alliance, the West has been
able to prevent war with the Soviets
for over 40 years.
The West and the Soviets have
not gone to war because each side
realizes the strength of the other.
The closest the world ever came to
World War 3 was the Cuban Missile
Crisis. The reason why the Cuban
Missile Crisis almost led to war was
because it created destabilization of
the firmly held positions between
the Warsaw Pact and NATO countries.
Ms. Waldern's suggestion that
we should not participate in NATO
activities is counterproductive to
here desire for "practical contributions to peace." Because if the
NATO Alliance broke down, the
Western   Countries   would   feel
isolated and volatile and the stability in the world would soon disappear; thus increasing the likelihood
of war.
NATO   must   be   held   firmly
together in order to assure that
democracy and freedom will prevail
in Canada and in all the Free
World. Hopefully Ms. Waldern will
come to learn that unilateral disar
mament will not bring peace but
rather instability, and instability
will bring «s closer to war.

Peace proposal promotes draft, genocide
I recently read some literature
published by the Students for Peace
and Mutual Disarmament, and being a knee-jerk anti-communist,
was pleasantly surprised: they're
not the naive doves I thought they
were. The club is non-ideological,
and well versed on disarmament
issues. However, it seems to lack a
vision of long run US-Soviet relations. If the human race is to survive this generation, a fundamental
paradigm shift (in the words of Dr.
Helen Caldicott has to occur.
The only way nuclear war can be
averted is to return to slightly
modified Nixon-style detente. The
new paradigm (i.e. underlying
assumptions) would consist of the
following:
1. Both superpowers unequivocally realize and admit that they
are, in the words of Henry Kissinger, "doomed to co-exist".
2. The west must re-arm itself
so a conventional military balance
is achieved. This may mean a
reinstatement of the draft in the
US.
3. Both superpowers respect
each other's strategic interests,
and defend them unapologetical-
ly. For example, central America
belongs to the U.S. in the same

It was close to 6 a.m. when Bob Freeman sauntered into his tiny east end basement suite. He quickly
threw off his sweaty, grease pencil-marked clothes and dove head-first towards his comfy futon.
Splat! Needless to say he missed. "Shucks," he muttered, thinking of what a nightmare of a night it
had been. He had really made the rounds that night, hitting the Peuq at So Fucked U., The Otter Mess
and finally the Ubyssmal. Everything was going fine until he arrived at College Printers to help the
Ubyssmal staff put out their blockbuster gay and lesbian issue. The Peuqies were pleased as punch to
have Bob, dear sweet the'Otter Mess, Bob, or as some know him, Robert, simply devoured those
typos like a man possessed. Nothing escaped Bobby's watchful eye, nope, heck no. "Come again,

What he saw in that printshop was in Bob's opinion, disgusting, revolting, completely and utterly

it was the talk among the staffers that got his girdle in a badly tangled knot. Bob, 'I wear size 9
wallabees and I'm damn proud of it' Freeman, heard the distinct rumblings of AMBITION. Yes indeed,
the desire for success, the thirst for upward mobility, the yearning for RRSP's and numerous other tax

4. Destabilizing developments
must be dealt with by both superpowers. This means that regimes
like those in Iran, South Africa
and Nicaragua must be crushed,
along with all terrorist organizations.
5. Westerners must ignore what
goes on inside the east block. This
means, for instance, that Amnesty
International stops bitching about
human rights violations in communist countries. We have to go
so far as to ignore genocide it is
occurs (if the Nazis had had
nuclear weapons, we would be
dealing with them on the same
basis today).
6. The USSR, the US, and
China must maintain a small
nuclear arsenal to impose order on
the world. All other countries
must be forced to give up their
nuclear weapons (which means
Britain, France, Israel, South
Africa, and possibly Pakistan).
7. Star Wars must be scrapped.
This should be done for economic
reasons alone.
These seven points are as unpalatable to foreign policy hawks as
they are to civil libertarians, but
they are necessary for the survival
of the human race. Unless both
sides adopt these beliefs, there will
continue to be a dangerous instability. Unfortunately, George
Orwell, Stalin, Mao, and Pol Pot
have made the west fiercely anti-
communist, which makes compromise difficult.

Canadian youth find their hero in Hebert
By DOUG SCHMIDT
"Great spirits have always
encountered violent opposition
from mediocre minds."
— Albert Einstein
For 21 days the gutsy action of a
single, old man galvanized
Canadians who, for that brief
period, focused their attention on
the desperate situation of Canada's
Lost Generation, the hundreds of
thousands of unemployed youth.
He did what great spirits had
done before him, and for three
weeks, as he starved, he was ridiculed and attacked by a cynical and
cowardly national press.
Jacques Hebert headed a Senate
special committee which roamed
the country in 1985 gathering
testimony on the plight of Canada's
youth, 600,000 of whom are
unemployed, many homeless,
others without hope for a job ever,
further education or any chance to
realize youthful dreams of getting
ahead in Canadian society.
Hebert said the public hearings
were very disturbing, that the
senators were not prepared for the
kind of testimony they actually got:
showing the terrible depth of the
problem.
Hebert called upon the
government for drastic action to
confront an intolerable situation
where such a large number of young
people should be forced to drift in
one of the richest societies on
Earth.
One of the reasons why our
leaders were (are) not doing
anything for the youth, claimed
Hebert, was because young people
are so damned patient.
But Hebert could see the limits to
that patience.
By the time the committee
released its report in mid-February,
Katimavik, one of the few
programs for youth, and the child of
Jacques Hebert, was threatened
with being shut down, and so too
was the ministry of youth.
!W*ND*R. WXN\*N!
Activate against warships
First you tell false stories about
me, then you put words in my
mouth. In my letter published on
March 25th, you wrote, "We look
to the example of New Zealand to
take the positive step of banning
nuclear armed and powered warships from their waters and harbours". What I actually said was,
"We look to the example of New
Zealand where the people
demonstrated in their tens of
thousands against U.S. warships,
pressuring the government of New
Zealand to take the positive step of
banning nuclear armed and
powered warships from their waters
and harbours".
My intention was to emphasize
the necessity for the people to activate themselves in mass
demonstrations in order to stop
U.S. and other aggressive warships
from coming into our waters and
harbours.
It is a violation of journalistic
ethics to change a writer's meaning
when editing a letter. Editing for
brevity is fine, but in this case you
actually left  blank lines  between
paragraphs instead of completing a
key sentence in my letter.
You also cut out an appeal I
made to my fellow students and the
teaching staff. Please allow me the
privilege of saying this: "The
university community has the
responsibility to make itself a factor
for peace and to oppose the gunboat diplomacy which is a prelude
to war."
How should we deal with the fact
that the Peace Festival on April 19
is being preceded by the scheduled
visit of six U.S. warships on April
18? Simple. Demonstrate against
these warships and tell them to go
home. Demonstrate on April 12 in
Nanaimo to close Nanoose Bay to
U.S. and all superpower warships.
Take these practical steps here in
Vancouver to oppose the war
preparations and the militarization
going on right in front of our
noses."
Thank you for letting me complete my thoughts on this important
Barbara Waldern
unclassified student
As a sad side story, it had just
been uncovered that the head of the
dying ministry saw her prime task as
that of recruiting new members to
the Young Tories.
In Hebert, Canada's youth have
had a strong, yet lonely voice in
Ottawa.
Katimavik was never the
principle reason for Hebert's
decision to fast.
But it was certainly the catalyst,
after witnessing the despondent,
apathetic youth silently becoming a
Lost Generation as they were
ignored and forgotten by
government.
Feeling powerless himself in his
attempts to get government to make
moves towards youth, and feeling a
genuine popular support among
Canadians for the Katimavik
program, Hebert packed his
sleeping bag on March 10 and
crashed out in the Senate foyer,
where he began his fast, willing to
die for a cause he believed in.
As the government emptily
confirmed its commitment to youth
and Hebert starved, the Ministry of
Youth gradually disintegrated, then
disappeared.
And the latest official stats
showed another gain in youth
unemployment.
Hebert's fast had two main
accomplishments, according to
Liberal Party leader John Turner:
"First, to heighten our
consciousness as a nation about the
crisis of youth.
"Second, to impress upon our
young people that they should
mobilize, should organize. Their
future is in their hands."
I doubt there is a significant
number among the unsentimental,
common sense youth of the 1980's
who can really understand what a
selfless and heroic act it was for
Hebert to risk health and life in
support of Canadian youth.
Gone are the self-confident,
idealistic and visionary youth of an
earlier era.
Jacques Hebert surprised us and
made us feel uneasy. We witnessed
a single person who saw Canada's
future drifting away in a sea of lost
hope.
And he decided that it was worth
dying for to return a glimmer of
hope to youth, by slapping the
Canadian conscience into
recognizing the desperate problems
facing the next generation.
As for the youth of today: is
there anything more noble worth
fighting and dying for than their
own future?

Letters
Unrighteous will burn in Hell
Articles in recent issues of the
Ubyssey lead me to believe that
there prevails at the university and
in the "religious community" a
lack of understanding about
precisely what Biblical Christianity
really is and precisely what its
claims are in relation to us and to
society.
Viewpoints about Christianity
range from the prevalent great
"mush God" and "social gospel"
presented so well in recent articles
to "the angry man in the sky with
lightning bolts." These views expand to include liberation theology
where God loves and encourages
the poor no matter what their moral
condition and is opposed to the
socially rich.
What is Christianity really about?
What is the truth? The best and
probably the only source for us to
gain an understanding of this is the
Bible. The Bible states with great
clarity that God loves all people (including the sinners), however, it
also states with equal clarity that
this great love of God will not save
the person who opposes the laws of
God from the grave judgement of
God to eternal hell and damnation.
. Because of this "mush God" and
"social gospel" which has been
propagated often by churches of today, people are deceived into thinking that God's justice will bypass
their lust, sensuality, homosexuality, pride, jealousy, selfishness and
rebellion.
That is to say God does not mean
what He says! This deception propagated by so-called Christians can
often only be broken by presenting
the harsh realities of God's
greatness and the judgement of sin,
so people will see their true condition.
Thus even though we have trouble with a method and the often
seeming harshness of a presentation, it is important for us to realize
the motive. To confront us with the
harsh reality of how God sees our
\P
sin or our compromised Christianity in order to wake us up to our
need for change, becomes a
courageous and loving act.
The Bible is very clear that while
God would like to see everyone repent and separate themselves from
sin, it is God's intention to place
forever the unrighteous in the fires
of Hell.
With God it is not maybe yes,
maybe no. God is a god of absolutes and has but one answer on
all questions.
The social gospel of today says
everyone is loved by God and will
be accepted by the great "mush
God" in the end. This social gospel
also condemns armed defense
against  communist  advances,  but
promotes armed aggression by the
poor in third world countries.
Because of this false, cruel deceptive view of God, it becomes nec-
cessary to go to the extreme at times
to clearly identify God's justice and
judgement, so that men can see
clearly their lostness in sin and need
of the saving grace of Jesus Christ.
In a community of free thinkers,
people searching- for the truths in
life, if Christianity is true it better
have more to offer than approval of
man's current moral condition,
whatever that may be and being a
social club to freely express points
of view and compromise.
To be even worth considering,
Christianity better be a challenge
to men and women to have the
courage and boldness to see their
lives change and live a completely
different lifestyle with no compromise for sin. It is my thesis that
this clearly is the basis of true Christianity according to the Bible.

Let my people(Jed & Cindy) go
Under the guise of Jed and Cindy, the question of freedom of
speech once again rears its head. In
a democratic society, and we count
ourselves as one, certain basic rights
are inviolate.
An individual's freedom of expression is such a right. However,
the rights of the audience (the
general public) cannot be ignored
— the right to freedom of choice.
Our society has decided, for instance, that erotic material ought
not be displayed in such a way as to
be unavoidable to the general
public. This is because it is upsetting or offensive for some members
of society who would not freely
choose to see it.
Note the outcry when the
"Ubyssey" printed a selection of
gay erotic literature, or that which
would occur if an erotic film were
shown at the doors to the Student
Union Building. Such a film,
created under the protection of the
right to freedom of expression, (the
same right exercised by the
evangelists), ought be shown in a
room where an individual would
choose or not to enter to view it.
Thus the rights and freedoms of the
audience and the film-makers
would be protected.
The same is true for the
evangelists whose themes and attitudes were clearly upsetting and
offensive to many, as witnessed by
the editorials and letters in this
paper. Lunch-time lectures are not
uncommon and a number of halls
or rooms are free at that time, often
used by other speakers. As in other
such events, political, educational,
etc., advertising would serve to
draw an interested audience.
To ban the couple's preaching
would violate their freedom of expression, but to allow them to speak
in a general access route violates
ours. Darien Simons

Festival fights for peace
By JENNIFER LYALL
The largest peace festival in
Canadian history will take place in
Vancouver, from April 19 to 27.
Experts on military and disarmament issues and concerned citizens
from around the world will meet to
discuss strategies to end the arms
race.
The festival will feature a disarmament symposium, an international mayor conference and a
students disarmament conference,
as well as concerts, exhibitions,
and, the annual Walk for Peace on
Sunday, April 27.
Highlighting the festival will be a
three day 'Centennial Disarmament
Symposium'.
The symposium will hold five sessions open to the public. Session I
will feature Rear Admiral Eugene
Carroll, deputy director of the
Center for Defense Information in
the   U.S.,   and   physicist   Kosta
Tsipis, director of the Program of
Science and Technology for International Security at MIT.
John Kenneth Galbraith, a Harvard economist and best-selling
author, will speak at session II,
which will deal with the economic
effects of the arms race.
Session III will focus on the effects of the arms race on the third
world.
In Session IV, Petra Kelly, a
founding member of West Germany's Green Party, and Takashi
Araki, the mayor of Hiroshima,
will speak on how individuals can
work to prevent nuclear war.
Paul Warnke, the chief US SALT
II negotiator and former director of
the US Arms Control and Disarmament Agency will join Vital
Zhurkin, a Soviet expert on international conflict, in the last session.
■-mi-*--- v*^,

At the symposium's conclusion,
three Nobel Laureates will combine
the ideas discussed and draft a
document titled Vancouver Peace
Proposals, which will be presented
to Ronald Reagan, Mikhail Gorbachev, and the leaders of the other
NATO and Warsaw Pact countries,
said Perry.
"We want to try to make a practical contribution to the world as a
whole in the form of a document
that is hard to ignore," said Perry.
The festival will culminate on
April 27 with the annual Walk for
Peace, which will start at both Kitsilano Beach and Cambie Street,
move over the Burrard and Cambie
Street bridges and end with a rally
at B.C. Place stadium. First held in
1982, the march annually attracts
thousands of participants. This
year, organizers are hoping to beat
the previous record of 115,000 marchers, set in 1984.

SaskTel policy unfair to
Page 9
III
r
REGINA (CUP)—Saskatchewan
students who want phone service
must now pay a $100 deposit for installation, prompting accusations
that the government owned Saskatchewan Telephone company has
been discriminating against poor
people..
The SaskTel policy is "very unfair", said Morris Eagles, Regina
Welfare Rights Center director,
because it implies people who have
the least money are more likely to
cheat the system.
Deadlines
discussed
Students may see an extension of
course withdrawal deadlines this
fall.
In a report handed to senate in
March 1985, a senate subcommittee
on grades and grading practices
recommended that students be
allowed an official withdrawal of
up to six weeks for single term
courses and up to 12 weeks for two
term courses. A withdrawal grade
("W") would appear on the student's transcript.
Recommendations for changes in
current course withdrawal policy
and grading practices have been
referred back to the faculties for
review at meetings scheduled in October.
Students for a Democratic
University have pressured senate to
increase withdrawal deadlines and
change its policy of failing unofficial withdrawals.
Alicia Barsallo, an SDU
spokesperson, applauded the
senate's move saying it will relieve
students from pressure. She warned
against giving unofficial
withdrawals a failing grade instead
of a grade of an incomplete.
"It is not accurate, not true, to
say that a student has failed, no
matter when they withdraw," said
Barsallo.
"If the university thinks it is terribly important they should include
dates on the withdrawal", she said.
Marilyn Cairns, director of
academic advice at Simon Fraser
University says the current
withdrawal policy at SFU, which
resembles proposals by the UBC
senate, is adequate.
"It (withdrawal proposals) has
been a positive thing here," she
said. "It makes students come to a
positive decision. They take it more
seriously."
"It means that if you haven't got
a credit rating, if you're transient or
if you work only temporary jobs
you're suspect," Eagles said. "According to SaskTel these people are
less trustworthy, although there's
no evidence."
SaskTel requires applicants who
are students, unemployed or have
no credit rating to pay the deposit
or have an acceptable third party
co-sign for them.
But SaskTel Corporate Relations
manager   Ron   Coulson   said   the
company has to protect itself
against bad debts.
Coulson said the company loses
between $1.5 and $2 million annually to bad debt, about .5 per cent of
SaskTel's $382 million in gross
revenue last year.
Although there are no statistics,
"it's common knowledge that the
record of university students isn't
that great," Coulson said.
"If four students from, say, Winnipeg, Hong Kong, Toronto and
Singapore   shared   a   phone   they
could ring up a lot of long distance
charges," Coulson said. "We've
been burned up to $400 on one
monthly phone bill . . . and it's
you and I as citizens who lose out,
not some fat cat in Toronto."
But Sel Murray, University of
Regina International student advisor, said he has had to cosign for
"quite a number" of students in
past years and has never had a problem with students paying their
bills.
By   asking   for   this   deposit
SaskTel assumes students will skip
out on their bills, said Blair
Wotherspoon, Canadian Federation of Students (Saskatchewan)
chair.
"Students have incredible cash
flow problems," Wotherspoon
said. "When a new student comes
to town he/she has to pay moving
expenses, tuition, rent and books.
Having to tie up even more money
(in a phone deposit) will increase
money problems later in the
semester."
ALARMED BY RECENT newscasts, an intrepid Socred employee investigates possible alternative lodging for the overflow of Expo visitors. In

OTTAWA (CUP)—A candidate

(finance) at the University of Ottawa got another person to impersonate him and get him a grade in a
Group Dynamics course last summer, the U of O Fulcrum reported
March 20.
But reporting the story almost
cost the newspaper that week's

away its flats, the council called the
printer and said it would not pay
the bill.
Council President Gabe Sekaly
said the corporation, which
publishes the Fulcrum, faced a
lawsuit from the candidate, John
Ryan. By badgering and slightly
changing the story, the paper convinced the council to publish it.
The Fulcrum published a class
photograph of the Group Dynamics
students, which the professor,
Hilory Horan, said included all
those who took the course.
The paper also published a photo
of John Ryan, who looks nothing
like the man claiming to be Ryan in
the class photo. The real John
Ryan's student number appears on
the list for final grades in the
course.
Ryan won the race by an
ovewhelming vote. He said he
would keep his seat despite the controversy.
Earlier in the week the council

Although External Affairs coordinator, Carol Pedlar both proposed the foodbank project and applied for the job, she was not hired.
"I'm upset," said Pedlar. "1 feel
shafted because someone else got
hired for my ideas and I'm especially disappointed my bus pass idea
wasn't accepted." Pedlar had
recommended the AMS hire a student to spend the summer lobbying
B.C. Transit to give a student concession fare card a three month trial
period.
AMS President Simon Seshradi
and Director of Finance, Jamie
Collins were also hired for the summer to carry out their duties they
were elected to do. Both Seshradi
and Collins will be paid $1760 per
month. The fifth person hired was
Ubyssey co-editor, Debbie Lo, as
editor of Inside UBC.
In other business, Dermod
Travis, "a concerned student",
blasted council, particularly
Seshradi   and   Pedlar,   for   their
refusal to boycott South African
goods and the recent transit fare increases .
"I was impressed by his sincerity,
but he hadn't spoken to me before
the meeting and he didn't really
know what he was talking about,"
said Pedlar after the meeting.
She explained to Travis during
the   meeting   that   she   had   only
recently been elected and had
therefore not been involved in the
decision made on South African
products. She added her bus pass
proposal had been rejected.
Finally, council agreed to
distribute a petition to bring David
Letterman to Expo. The petition
will be distributed to all undergrad
societies and AMS businesses.
Strangway plans victories
UBC administration president
David Strangway wants to ensure
UBC has funds for faculty renewal,
library maintenance and adequate
building space.
He said in a recent interview he is
embarking on a vigorous fundraising campaign to increase UBC's annual private funding to fifteen per
cent from seven per cent.
Strangway, who started as UBC
president last November, said he
has learned "a great deal about a
great university and now his goal is
to "reinforce and articulate the role
of UBC in B.C. and Canada."
He called UBC a large multipur-
Education beats Bill in April Fool's Day poll
Pink slips were on the side of
education last April Fools Day.
Protesters and passers-by
chose between education and

demonstration :n favor of
education Tuesday on the Vancouver Art Gallery steps at Robson.
Education drew 426 votes,
Bennett two votes, and one person voted for Bennett and
education.
"It was definitely a
demonstration for the eighties,"
said Carol Pedlar, UBC Alma
Mater Society external affairs
coordinator, referring to the
disappointing turnout at the ral-
ly-
She said the number of
students at the rally was less than
200, including approximately
five UBC students, adding the
rally was probably held too close
to exams to attract a larger
number of demonstrators.
Mike Geoghegan, Canadian
Federation of Students national
representative, said, he hoped the
demonstration would raise peo
ple's awareness of "how we have
been fooled" about education
by the B.C. government.
"The Socreds have made promises and then gone back on
them," he said. "The participation rate of students in this province is only half that in Ontario."
Some of the posters at the rally said:
"Don't be fooled - vote for
education."
"B.C. loves education;
Socreds don't."
"Bye Bye Billy Boy."
pose university in the tradition of
University of Toronto or California's Berkely, adding he hopes to
emphasize UBC's important roles
in research and teaching.
Strangway said his greatest victory this year was the settlement of
the financial exigency (crisis) policy
issue with the faculty association.
Under the terms of the new agreement, the faculty association will
have a voice in defining a state of
exigency and in which faculty
members would be terminated.
A previous attempt two years ago
to settle the long-contentious issue
failed.
Strangway said he strengthened
ties with UBC alumni, the Vancouver business community, and
smaller B.C. communities this year.
This also included increased consultations with the UBC alumni
association, and the establishment
of a high school liason office.
A major concern of Strangway's
is attracting students from outlying
regions of B.C., and increasing the
number of students from the rest of
Canada and the United States.
Strangway said his "relationship
with (post-secondary education
minister) Russ Fraser has been very
positive." He said that the government is "very interested in the
issues of the university" and that
UBC and the government are
"operating on the basis of mutual
respect." Page 10

• the constant necessity for foreign
students to renew their expensive
visas
• requirement of foreign students
to pay into Canadian social
security programs despite being
ineligible to receive benefits
• ineligibility for work permits
restricting them to teaching assistant positions, for salaries which
have not risen as fast as tuition
fees. (At UBC, T.A. salaries were
cut in the fall).
Nalamasu who will be leaving
UBC to do post doctoral work at
Columbia University says the main
reason he is leaving is because of the
limited work available for him here.
"It is one of my major disappointments," he says. "I and
some of my friends aren't working
and the profs can't do anything.
Careers are virtually ruined."
Nalamasu says he is even banned as
an international student from participating in co-operative education, work and study combined programs, because he is on a visa.
Education in the States is attractive to him, says Nalamasu, because
students and their spouses can work
outside, as well as on campus, to
supplement their incomes.
The senate youth report says,
"The encouragement of international students to attend our post
secondary intitutions is a good
thing for Canada, both for international relations and for the
dissemination of information." It
adds they contribute to research,
culture and the image of Canada
abroad.
But the number of international
students coming to UBC has declined in the last year from 1,019 to
934. In Canada the number has
declined from 36,000 in 1983/84 to
32,500 in '85/'86.
A policy paper on international
students by the North South Institute released in January lamented
the drop and said the common
perception that international
students compete with Canadians
for university spots "is based more
on fear than fact." International
students amounted to only five per
cent of the total Canadian university enrolment last year.
Most UBC international students
who come to UBC are graduate
students.
Kevin Shelly, a chemistry
graduate student from Ireland,
came to UBC because he was offered a teaching assistant position
in chemistry.
He says international students
come to Canada because they are
needed here. Due to the small
percentage of Canadians entering
research positions, international
students are often offered teaching
assistant positions, says Shelly.
Canada is a good place to go to
get an education, says Shelly, but
once a program is finished most
foreign students "get out fast".
"We are all here for a purpose; to
get educated and go home." About
4,000 graduate students are currently enrolled at UBC and are selected
on academic merit.
Shelly adds the recent provincial
removal of medical coverage, the
proposed $50 visa processing fee,
and recent bus fare hikes have added to his financial worries.

ternational students must show proof of financial support and they go
through much paper work before
they can obtain their visas.
Rory McBlaine, UBC International House director, says many
programs are available for international students to aquaint them to
the Canadian lifestyle.
Far fewer women than men come
as international students to
Canada. McBlaine attributes this to
"cultural reasons".
Incidents of racism are also rarely
reported to McBlaine who believes
there are many more incidents than
are reported. He says complaints in
the past have included ones on
housing, where a place is rented
when a coloured student knocks on
the door but is amazingly made
available half an hour later to a
white student. He added students
usually decline to take further action.
At present no national policy on
international students has been
established. A joint senate sub
committee is currently researching
Canada's position on foreign affairs to establish a coherent national policy. According to
McBlaine it will be at least another
year before it will be completed.

Page 11
By MICHAEL GROBERMAN
ith all the hype, the stories of the national search for stars, the
versions of director/choreographer Jeff Hyslop's Broadway experience, how could this production be so absolutely abysmal?
Sure, the story is contrived. A group of dancers audition for
eight places in a chorus line. The auditions actually amount to
psychoanalysis at centre-stage, but who's criticizing? This is
musical theatre.
The dancing in this super-deluxe gazoomba of a dance show is
surprisingly, and disappointingly, dull.
The opening routine, I Hope I Get It, is high energy enough, but
the energy dissipates with shocking speed as Larry Herbert (Mike)
shuffles through the Broadway "wower", I Can Do That. Herbert
tosses in a cartwheel, the highlight of his routine, and it appears
more self-parody than real dancing. And this, of all roles, is the one
Hyslop is accused of having toured from New York with.
It is not that the choreography is wrong, but the dancing is weak. The
moves are there, but none of it is clean or confident.
Valerie Easton, as Val, sleep-walks through Dance Ten; Looks Three,
droning "left the theatre and called the doctor for my appointment to buy
tits and ass...' This is a raucous, irreverant, hilarious song, here robbed of
all its vitality. And poor, understuffed Easton, through some horrible
costume or directoral error, sports no...well, er..tits.
Greg Charles is Larry, the assistant to the on-stage director, and he is a
fine, strong, graceful dancer. He is as good as the others should be. But his
part is too small to affect the overall quality of the show's dancing...and he
can't act.
The final chorus line, the one we always see in photos and on T.V. .could
quite possibly be the world's longest, scripted, choreographed curtain-call.
It is a self-indulgent big finish, totally unrelated to the preceding show except for the play's title.
Everyone in the cast, even those "cut" after the first five minutes, get to
high kick and wear gold glitter. The audience must applaud each gold-
dipped "dancer", as each appears individually to join the line. If the show
had been great, if the dancing had been great, this chorus line stuff would
work, but here, in this Vancouver production, where the show has been
abysmal to this point, this final self-love-making on stage is undeserved by
the cast, and awkwardly indulged by the audience (most of which has been
waiting for this part all night).
This is a big bunch of too-old or too-ordinary Canadian dancers trying to
pretend they're in New York and they really give a shit about getting in the
chorus and looking good on the line. Not even close, kids.
The singing is much better than the dancing. Tricia Adams, as Diana,
belts out Nothing and What I Did for Love. This is first class singing in a
third rate show. Her voice is powerful, moving, very theatrical.
Rhae Ann Theriault as Maggie, and Jeffrey Prentice as Paul, are also
fine singers.
Page Fletcher is Zach, the director who is casting the big show we're all
auditioning for. Fletcher plays Zach with such arrogance, melodramatics,
and condescension that his every word is irksome, even insulting to the au-
. dience. He personally exudes a self-congratulatory air that is this show at
its most pretensious (and most unbearable).
Zach comes striding out to centre-stage to embrace Paul who he has just
reduced to tears by demanding he relate the painful story of his parents seeing him in a drag show. During the silent embrace, a voice deep inside this
reviewer cried out: but this is only a fucking dance audition.
Fletcher portrays such self-love and self-importance, mugging and overacting with his "deep emotion", he does not excuse the contrivance and
pretension problems of the script, but exacerbates them.
Jeffrey Prentice, as Paul (he sings well, I did say he sings well) delivers
the most moving speech of the play (about his parents and the drag show),
but there is something seriously wrong with his characterization. It appears
that he misinterprets the word "effiminate" and plays it as "wimp",
sniveling and cringing as he describes his inevident effeminate mannerisms.
His painfully weak, painfully shy Paul hardly belongs outside of his
mother's house, let alone on a Broadway stage.
A Chorus Line was originally created by workshops with real dancers
who had lived the lives portrayed in this play, and for whom a chorus line
audition is a central, emotional, life experience. All of the subsequent casts;
including the one currently on Broadway, no doubt, come from this world
of high tension, enormous competition, and few rewards. You have to be
great even to get a small part on Broadway. And you have to sing and act
too.
In Canada, it appears, one has to be merely competent to get a big role.
Jeff Hyslop is too talented, and has far too much experience with his
show to be accused of not knowing what he's doing. He's worked with
what he's had. Maybe he had casting problems. Maybe he cast wrong,
maybe the real dancers all live in the States (it's an all Canadian cast).
Presumably, Hyslop knows exactly how bad this show is. But in his
director's notes in the program, he writes: "I think Vancouver and international audiences here for EXPO are in for a very special treat." An "international embarasment" is more likely.
Turtles free, funny
■■HHii^HHMI     By DUNCAN STEWART
_J^J^_\ I   ne British are coming, the
______       _\   British are coming!"
bi^bi^^H       BJ is my sad duty to report
BBBaBJ H that subversive and foreign
^^H^H^^ggJfl films are invading good,
patriotic Canadian theatres. One such film is Turtle
Diary, written by Harold Pinter.
Where, I ask, are the good North American values
in this flick? No weapons, no car chases, and no
swearing. It's enough to make a guy rend his Rambo
sweatshirt in anger.
Turtle Diary, starring Ben Kingsley and Glenda
Jackson, is obviously not a Hollywood (or even a
Hollywood North) production. It contains superb
writing, excellent direction and actors who actually
move some of their facial muscles.
Even the plot is straightforward. A book writer,
Naeara (Jackson), and a bookseller, William
(Kingsley), have a common interest at the London
Aquarium. They both watch the giant sea-turtles,
and they both feel that the turtles thirty years in captivity is too long and they should be set free.
Sad to say, there are no- Commies trying to foil
their plans, and a heavily armoured helicopter plays
absolutely no role in the movie. All the film shows is
the main characters, their lives, and how they deal
with and react to other human beings.
The humour of the film is completely unforced,
All of the funny parts are typically understated.
When Naeara proposes stealing the turtles and setting them free, William suggests a less radical approach: "Why don't you try writing to the Times
about it?"
This approach is dismissed, and with the cooperation of the zookeeper (Michael Gambon), they
endeavour to free the turtles.
This movie has more levels of meaning than
Porky's has bathroom jokes. It describes the imprisoned turtles as metaphors for the main
characters. William admits that everybody is like the
turtles, and is not free. The freeing of the turtles
becomes symbolic, a catharsis for the human
characters that will allow them to free themselves.
The mood of the film is distinctly English. The
camera moves slowly, and lingers on the actor's
faces, actually giving the audience time to see what is
writ there.
Kingsley and Jackson play off each other perfectly. Their characters are what they have been written
to be, and are not overborne by the personality of the
actor playing the role. They adapt to the role, instead
of having the role written for them. What would
Meryl Streep say (or sob)?
When you get right down to it, there is no way I
can recommend this movie. Unless you.are fed up
with the cinematic gems that Hollywood gives us,
don't see it. Only people who like intelligent, sensitively written movies would waste their time at the
Royal Center or the Varsity theatres.

orba not worth ouzo
By LAURA MALLEN
What ever happened to the old saying "you get what you pay for"?
People paid - through the nose - to see Anthony Quinn in the musical verson of Zorba and what they got for
their money was decidedly mediocre.
Zorba
starring Anthony Quinn
produced by Joel Grey
The show itself is based on the book ZORBA THE GREEK by Nikos Kazantzakis (I'll bet the book was better)
and was a movie before being adapted for the stage.
The story, set in Greece, opens when Niko, an American businessman, is introduced to Zorba in a cafe. Niko
has just inherited an old mine on Crete and, when Zorba learns of this, he asks Niko to hire him to run the mine.
Niko agrees.
The men arrive in the small, rustic village on Crete and board at Madame Hortense's. She is a wealthy, old and
flirtatious French woman, whom Zorba immediately enraptures.
Things don't really get moving until the second act, when the story continues with Niko falling in love with the
village widow (yes, there's a village idiot, too) which causes some guy to jump off a cliff (unrequited love). Of
course, the widow has to be publicly executed for rejecting the poor man by the rest of the village (tradition).
Soon after this Madame Hortense steps across death's door as well.
If you are getting the feeling that the stage is not the most sophisticated medium for what was probably a fairly
decent book, you are right.
The story is narrated by an inexplicable character called the Leader (Ms. Muse). Her job is to step onto the
stage at odd moments and sing to the audience the meaning of life, love and death, while wearing a low-cut black
dress.
Highlights of the show were the voices of Niko (Paul Harman), The Leader (Donna Theodore), and The
Widow (Angelina Fiordellisi). They do a trio in the second act that is truly excellent.
Another strong scene was the Easter Dance, a ritualistic dance done with long, wooden staffs. There is no
music at all, just-the rhythms made by the wood against the floor. (I suspect that this was the only really Greek
part of the show, everything else was strictly Broadway.)
The only low points of the show came when either Madame Hortense (Lila Kedrova) or Zorba (Anthony
Quinn) opened their mouths to sing.
Let's face it, both of these people are well above the mandatory retirement age, and it shows.
Granted Anthony Quinn is a good actor, and suits the part, but his singing voice is non-existent.
All in all the show was good. Not bad, not great, but good. With tickets at $30, though, it should have been
outstanding. Perhaps, next time, the promoters can work out a ratio system: as the stars' ages increase, ticket
prices should drop accordingly. Say, five dollars per year?.

The Erpingham Camp is a silly
bit of fluff.
The play takes place at an English
holiday camp. The camp director,
Mr. Erpingham, Rod Eagel, sees
himself as the absolute monarch of
his realm and is planning how to
spread his empire of vacation
camps across the world.
He is properly English and
whenever he changes he gets an aide
to put a piece of tape over the
Queen's eyes in all of her pictures.
Erpingham Camp
Studio 58
When the activities director suddenly dies Erpingham has no choice but
to give the position to Keven Riley
(Mike Stack), a staff member and a
bumbling incompetent.
The play revolves around the activities of the staff and two couples
vacationing at the camp. Lou and
Ted (Roxanne Kinsman and Tony
Esposito) are an upper class couple
who met at the Conservative club.
Eileen and Kenny are a labour class
couple who have been married for
one year. Eileen is visibly pregnant.
The evening's entertainment for
the campers (and audience) consisted of a collection of song and
dance numbers performed by camp
staff interspersed with camp contests. In some of the contests the
staff pulled reluctant audience
members into a "dog barking contest" and a draw for the door prise.
The final contest was for Tarzan
of   the   camp.   Kenny   wins   this
honour and is led off by the accordion player (Laura Gasbarro) who
is called the staff nymphomaniac.
Lou and Eileen are selected for a
screaming contest and Ted to do the
CanCan in his undershorts.
The scene is complete chaos with
Kenny yodeling Tarzan yells in a
leopard skin, Ted doing the Can-
Can with a staff member wearing a
propeller cap and rubber ears, Lou
aiid Eileen trying to outscream each
other, and the rest of the camp staff
adding to the confusion.
The evenings entertainment
breaks into a near riot when Riley
strikes the pregnant Eileen to stop
her from screaming.
The invasion of Erpingham's office and all of the fight scenes are
done in a slapstick manner and as
the play progresses the costumes
become more and more tattered.
All of the parts are skillfully
acted. The camp staff is amusingly
incompetent, the campers
humorous one sided parodies of
different English classes, and the
padre a lecherous character who
gives obscure biblical parallels for
almost everything that happens.
The script manages to make stabs
at many foibles of English Society.
Political, sexual, national, and
religious ideals are all ridiculed with
equal abandon.
The Erpingham Camp is a pleasant diversion for an evening and
has a few delightfully memorable
scenes. This isn't a deep
philosophical play but a good evenings fun.

armony with nature the saving solution
By DOUG SCHMIDT
Some men see things as they are and say: Why? Others dream
things that never were and say: Why not?
—George Bernard Shaw
A significant number of those who get the opportunity to read
Dwellers in the Land will be switching from Shaw's category
which asks: Why? into the group of thinkers which asks: Why
not?
Why must we live with the everpresent threat of nuclear
destruction over our heads? Why are there not jobs for everyone?
Why is there a growing sense of powerlessness, alienation and
apathy among citizens?
And how can we stop the deterioration of the environment
which threatens our very existence on this planet?
Dwellers in the Land:
The Bioregional Vision
by Kirkpatrick Sale
217 pp. San Francisco:
Sierra Club Books.
In this well-written, lucid and astonishingly hopeful book,
Kirkpatrick Sale offers a radical, yet practical solution on how to
confront these questions, a proposal which will leave many
readers asking: Why not?
Sale charts humankind's breaking of ties with nature and says
we must adapt to the planet's environment — conserving its intricate symbiosis — or else we will commit suicide by destroying
the ecology.
Humankind has turned away from Gaea, the Greek mother-
god, to embrace a false "industrio-scientific" god. Rather than
heeding the dictates of the environment, writes Sale, we became
obsessed with dictating to it.
We have constructed an unhappy civilization, based on an
"industrio-scientific paradigm": large-scale organizations, a
competitive and exploitative economic system, centralized and
hierarchical politics and a polarized, violent society.
Radical and urgent changes are needed if we are to escape
global ecological disaster, writes Sale.
The alternative, he suggests, is that we regain the spirit of the
ancient Greeks and once again become "Dwellers in the Land" by
understanding ourselves as participants in, and not masters over
earth's biotic community.
The crucial and perhaps all-encompassing task is to understand
place, the immediate specific place where we live. We must
understand the limits of the resources in that place and how we affect the environment through our use of it.
This is the essence of what Sale proposes; throwing out all of
the political boundaries now in place around the globe and replacing them with an ecologically coherent system called,
"bioregionalism."
Sale defines a bioregion as "a life-territory, a place defined by
its lifeforms, its topography and its biota, rather than by human
dictates; a region governed by nature, not legislature."
Sale draws upon many, of the principles of the natural world to
build his vision of a bioregional paradigm.
First among these is the concept of community, the "single,
basic building block of the ecological world." Sale, whose last
book, "Human Scale," dealt with the problems of modern society, shows how the small community is the most efficient at using
energy and recycling its wastes.
It also offers the best scale for a government, where the individual can see any direct effects of input he or she might give to
the system.
After his initial description of the problems we face and a perfunctory overview of the bioregional paradigm, Sale goes to great
lengths to dispel any impressions that his proposals might appear
"either too limiting and provincial or quaintly nostalgic, or wide-
eyed and Utopian" — or radical.
The communities would not be inward-looking, self-obsessed
or closed to the world — communications and technology could
be used extensively, however the goal would be sustainability, not
growth, writes Sale.
A bioregional society would establish a stable means of production and exchange, not one always in flux and dependent on con-1
tinual   growth   and   constant   consumption,   "in   service   to
something called 'progress.' "
Sale, who is also a journalist and a lecturer, says the greatest
difficulty is convincing people to seriously look at a system so at
odds with the conventional way of looking at the world.
Sale is only half sarcastic when he asks why people ' 'scorn a
future economic system simply because it fails to live up to present one that is both grossly inequitable and highly unstable."
The actual implementation of bioregionalism is very simple, he
claims.
The components are already there, unhidden, right where we
live.
Sale points to the large amount of groundwork already done on
regionalism, particularly by Americans during the depression
years of the 1930's, disillusioned with the failure of a centralized
economic system.
In more recent years, the dream of bioregionalism has been
taken up by numerous organizations, including the emerging
Green parties.
This book is a must-read for people who are poor,
unemployed, worried about the threat of nuclear war and social
violence, dissatisfied with their jobs, tired of participation in
draining partisan politics, worried about the destruction of our
environment and people who want to actually affect the political
process.
"Because," as Sale concludes, "what other choice, really, do
we have?" Page 14
THE    UBYSSEY

^ From page 6
It was too late now, Bob had committed himself. He sat in the RCMP detachment at UBC, wondering if he was getting flustered for nothing. Perhaps AMBITION wasn't that bad after all. Heck, it got
Gordon Clark somewhere. How many lucky souls get to read the Vancouver Scum's news section
from cover to cover? he asked himself. Geez, it's more exciting than cleaning off the guck on the wall
that remains after a fly has been nuked. And what about Charlie Fidelman? Was it flying in a plane upside down and ralphing up breakfast for that front page story which got her that plum job? Hell no. It
was nothing less than AMBITION, the real McCoy, enough to make any YUPPIE cower in the corner.
Despite these thoughts. Bob stood firm when officers Sonny Ferman and Ricardo Groberman walked into the office. "Tell us everything you know," Ferman said to Bob. "Yeah," said Groberman.
"Okay, okay, just don't make me explain the significance of Act 2, Scene 3 of Fiddler On The Roof,"
said Bob who proceeded to explain the significance of Act 2, Scene 3 anyways. He then told them the
evil happenings at the Ubysmal. It was true. New staffers, fresh off the 'tweens beat, were enquiring
about summer jobs at the Scum. With their portfolios of two, count 'em, two stories in hand, they
werti ready and witling to join the ranks of the pig press. Oh, it was a travesty. "Sounds serious,"
utterly Ferman. "Yeah," chortled Groberman.
The two ace detectives of the tittle-known vice squad of the UBC detachment ticked their chops.
Sloosh sloosh. They had been waiting months to get something on The Ubysmal. They immediately
handed over the investigation of the AMS (concerning allegations that Duncan Stewart had been
planted on the Ubyssey staff to ensure freestyles are forever drippy and reeking of mawkish sentimentality) to junior detectives Mary Cameron, Donna Flanagan and Chris Pearson. Then the suave duo,
famous for past exploits such as memorizing everything they needed to know for their Bar Mitzvahs in
eight hours flat, strode into Lt. Muriel Draaisma's office, brimming with excitement.
Draaisma instructed the two to infiltrate the Ubysmal and discover if this ghastly thing, AMBITION,
was really infecting the masses. "Godspeed," said Draaisma, the lapsed but funky Catholic. Little did
they know what they were in for. (This is called foreshadowing, you know, that's when an upcoming
event is alluded to, simply to keep the readers interested despite this deathly boring prose.
. (Play more schlocky music, fade into SUB 241K . . .)
Groberman and Ferman opened the big yellow door and stepped into the Ubysmat office, ready to
encounter any danger. That is, except the sight of Camile Dionne munching and slurping what appeared to be a jar of monkey brains. "Oh, it's only canned pears, you want some," she said to the
bewildered twosome. After declining, Groberman took the initiative and forcefully walked over to Debbie Lo's desk. Ferman was still transfixed by Dionne's culinary tastes and was unable to budge.
"Oh, excuse me, I was wondering if I could join the Ubysmal," squeaked Groberman. "Oh wonderful, yes, marvy, I'm so very thrilled," said the effervescent Lo. Groberman was directed to Lo's editorial'
counterpart, Stephen Wisenthal who was directing his gaze on a certain Cap Courier staffer. "Hah,
what," he said upon hearing his name announced. "You threw my concentration off, this is a very'
tricky ad layout, at least eight pager today," he muttered. Before Groberman could utter another word:
the tights were suddenly flicked off and a struggle ensued. "Ha ha, we got them," said Lo, how look-,
ing dangerously fierce. Duffy Cutler, Steve Johnson, Heather Campbell and Boric Klavora were all,
needed to help Lo and Wisenthal subdue the UBC vicers who were thrown into the beer-less,
refrigerator.
The Ubysmalites, well-aware of the UBC vice's guise, let the tortue begin. "... and you're all incompetent, and I'm always being persecuted, and, and . . ." Agony, true, agony, thought Ferman.
Those cruel Ubysmal types were forcing them to listen to recordings of Sarah Millin, reading from her.
favourite collection of vitriolic dialogue. "That will break them down," thought Martin West and|
Sherida Levy, nowjoininginonthefun. Within a few minutes, Ferman and Groberman confessed their,
true identities to the growing mob, now joined by Tony'life is a Rush' Roberts, S-T-E-L-L-AIIM! Wong
and Rosanna 'meet me in the hottub' Ditmars. •
Suddenly, an unassuming but familiar-looking pair charged into the crowd, "Hi, we're Mobu and
Sam," they said in tandem. "We're in town from San Francisco. Anyone know where James Young
is?" Little did they know Young was off at Nanoose Bay, covering the inter-racialists of the world convention. But everyone knew Young shared something in common with Clark and Fidelman: you guessed it, AMBITION. They kept quiet, not wanting Groberman and Ferman to find out. Then something
truly strange happened, something weirder than weird, something more bizarre than a readable
Ubysmal story, something odder than Victor Wong's nine-and-a-half ballet slippers (Canadian Armed
Forces issue): "The Vancouver Scum has folded," announced Joel Silverman who had just received
the news over the phone. At first the muttley crew was stunned, then the shrieks and cries began.
"Boo hoo," they screamed in succession. It was true, they were all aspiring Scum reporters, with visions of such delights as reporting on Exploit '86 and cockatoos stuck in trees.
Quickly seizing the moment of paralysis, Groberman and Ferman broke open the refrigerator door
and switched off the lights again. Bump, crash, fumble . . . suddenly UBC Vice was back in command. The dastardly detectives had somehow managed to call in reinforcements, including the feared
Carl Rosenberg, Monte Stewart, Shirley Farlinger and none other than Angus Fraser, fresh from a stint
working the counter at the Guatamala City McDonald's. They were joined by the vicious Edward Mou
and the charming but brutal Ronald Stewart.
What now began is almost too grotesque, too revolting to recount. But it must be done (mainly
because I somehow have to finish the rest of this goddamn masthead). Led by Groberman and Ferman, the vice squad subjected each and every Ubysmalite to a rigorous conversion process which
would forever rid them of their, gasp, AMBITION. They threw the worst cases in Stephen Wisenthal's
vehicular unit and they were whisked off to UBC vice headquarters.
Brenda Chin, Davey Johnes, Kristi Blocker and Mark Fettes grabbed the pathetic peons and threw
them into a holding cell. A few minutes later, after being forced to read some old mastheads by that
guy Chris Wong, the poor, squealing Ubysmal staffers, by now in a stunned state, were brought into a
room containing only a screen.
The sniveling and shivering Ubysmal staffers were really starting to panic now. And you know, a
mystical thing started happening. Those staffers, everyone from the still-smiling Debbie Lo, to the
pear-munching Camile Dionne began to reflect on their pitiful and dispicable thirst for AMBITION.
They realized how easy it was to get stuck in the trap of evil clutches of AMBITION. It began with
'tweens, but then, it was only a shot step to letters, and then, you felt like you were ready for the New
York Times Peking bureau.
Wade Gemmell, Joel Silverman, Peter Carpenter — they alt realized how they were duped. And yes,
evun, John Edgar, Kevin Loo and Al Banner, "Oh God, Jah, Buddah," they exclaimed, "forgive us for
wes have sinned." But the others remain nonplussed. That staffer who knew what ambition was all
about, Eva Busza, she cried out: "Onwards and upwards, to hell with doing tweens and covering
speeches, we need page one brites, lots of them. That's what will get us a job at the Scum!"
Oh, what a display of unbridled AMBITION in its most ugly and naked state. It was frightening to say
the least. Indeed, Bob Dawson, Erika Simpson and Beryl Tsang whimpered in the corner, just thinking

Stage faces AIDS
By ROBIN ADDISON
The program for As Is comes
complete with glossary: (AIDS - acquired immune deficiency; PWA-
person with AIDS), and a small
note at the bottom states that "a
portion of each ticket sold for The
Arts Club Theatre's production of
As Is will be donated to AIDS Vancouver". Not, on first sight, a play
promising an evening's entertainment.
As Is is not, however, about peo
ple dying from AIDS. Instead, it is
a celebration of life, and speaks of
honesty, loyalty and courage. It is a
tale about Rich (John Ormerod), a
young New York author, who contracts AIDS. As he learns to deal
with his illness, the reactions of his
As Is

Street
friends, relatives and other acquaintances are used to provide insight
into the problems of coping with
AIDS. With the support of his ex-
lover, Saul (Robert D. McQueen),
Rich learns to confront the disease
with dignity and courage.
John Ormerod, as Rich, is admirable. He presents a realistic vision of the man suffering from today's equivalent of the Plague —
the anger and loneliness are present,
peppered with a well developed
sense of humour and refusal to
despair. McQueen's Saul is a
somewhat weaker character — he
tends to come across as shallow, not
really able to understand his
friend's problem, although he
claims that he does.
A high point in the play comes
under the guise of Doris Chilcott as
the hospice worker. Her character is
used to pull the various scenes
together by relating her experiences
with various patients she has
"learned" from. She comes across
as a warm, understanding human,
not a goody-goody, but a good person.
Lighting and set designs are well
done. The set is well used, and, as
there is no intermission, is
necessarily innovative, doubling as
a bar, street, meeting hall and
home.
As Is is, therefore, not the
depressing work that it could easily
have been. In dealing with a heartbreaking circumstance, it keeps its
sense of humor and best of all its
humanity, drawing many laughs
not by sidestepping important
issues, but by plowing headlong into them, forcing us to take a deeper
look at our social values.

U.S. saves, Khadafy kills
I feel compelled to respond to the
Ubyssey's ridiculous editorial on
the Libyan crisis.
The Ubyssey takes the position
that it is mad to taunt a madman.
Following this logic, it would have
been ridiculous to taunt Adolf
Hitler, and the West should never
have gone to war in 1939.
We erred. According to the
Ubyssey, we should have let Hitler
do what he wanted to do.
From page 14
about the whole debacle they were witnessing.
But it wouldn't last long. Even diehards like
Doug Schmidt and Steve Engler would break
down. The conversion began when the staffers,
now strapped in their seats, noticed the lights
were dimming. Oh Jah, it was dark, and a film
projector started whirring. Now the torture really
began.
First to appear on the screen were Mark
Leiren-Young and Neil Lucente. "Where did ambition get us?" they asked. "Covering the ennual
dung dig in Williams Lake and Quesnel," they
revealed, both mere shells of the ambitious journalistic dudes they once were. Next up were Patti Flather and Robert Beynon. "Ambition got us
to Hong Kong where we cover such hot stories
as corruption in the dim sum tray manufacturing
industry," they said to the gesps of the poor
Ubysmal staffers. And then came that famous
Ubyssey staffer who worked along such greats
as Les Bewley and Joe Schlesinger. It was of
course, Enver Hoxha. "Ambition sucks. Sure I
got hired by the Scum, but they sent me to their
Albania bureau — almost as much fun as covering council."
That was enough for the poor, poor Ubyssmal
types. They had seen the light. AMBITION, evil,
dirty AMBITION was not the answer to their
dreams, hopes, or desires. Hell nol From now
on, they swore to divorce themselves from all
thoughts about a prominent future in that
noblest of all professions, journalism. Even
future collectoids, Svetozar Kontic (voted most
eligible bachelor — Kitimat, 1975, and Evelyn
Jacob (owner of a slick 1600 cc Harley), dispelled
all thoughts of eventually slinging their portfolios
over their backs and hopping up to the third floor
of pathetic press.
But a few die-hards remained unconvinced.
Namely, that shrewd careerist Karen Gram and
the vivacious Use Magee. Joining these holdouts were Mary McAlister and Peter Burns —
who were both ready and willing to sell their
souls to the pantheon of pig pressdom on Granville St. So yet another film was shown, this one
featuring the revered film critic. Amy Lam. "Ambition never got me anywhere. I'm still on the
Care-Bears beat," she said with a look of complete sincerity. It was no yoke. Journalistic hacks
had no compassion. Not even a great contribution to the cinematic genre such as the Care
Bears was accorded respect. No ambition could
fight such cultural prejudice.
Oh, horrors of horrors. The painful reality
struck home. One by one, the Ubysmalites confessed their AMBITIOUS sins: lan Robertson,
Colin Stacey, John Walters, Len MacKave, not
to mention Jason Levine, Ken Anderlini and
Richard Woloshen — they all owned up their
crimes. Yes, they all showed their bylined stories
to their mothers, yes they all would be willing to
interview their grandparents and proceed to
write 60 inches just to fill up their scant portfolios, and yes, they would kill for that Scum
presscard. Kill what? Kill alt integrity, all principles, all that is good and right.
Of if Jean-Paul Sartre could have witnessed
the amazing scene of cathartic agony that
erupted. Everyone, from Renate Boerner to
Keith Stringer, vowed not to be journalists someday, but, yes this is the clincher, to be AUTHENTIC people. Oh, my oh my, it was glorious. Even
the officers guarding the screening room, Murray Johnson, Nancy Lee and Morgan Burke —
they all had to admit it was so very moving.
Thus this is a story of truth, of honesty, of . . .
oh fuck who knows, is this masthead over yet?

MCXVIII.
In the 1930's, Hitler proclaimed
Jews to be second-class citizens,
hardly better than animals. In the
1980's, Khadafy has called for a
"Holy War" against Jews, spilling
the blood of every Jew in the
Mediterranean Sea.
Yet the Ubyssey feels we should
blame America for being hateful of
Khadafy. Then I guess we should
blame Britain, France, America,
Canada, and others for their hatred
of Hitler in the 1930's.
Under the Ubyssey's logic, the
actions of the Western countries
caused Hitler to be the way he was.
The Ubyssey claims the present
situation is "rhetoric gone mad".
What is truely mad is the anti-
American rhetoric that is constantly
put forth by hypocritical and naive
idealists who feel the way to deal
with a madman is to do nothing and
try to understand his point of view.
There is no logical way to understand the killing of innocent people
in terrorist attacks organized by
Khadafy. Nor can people in the
civilized world understand the point
of view of a man like Khadafy who
celebrates as heroes the men who
murdered Israeli athletes at the 1972
Summer Olympic Games.
The Ubyssey claims it works
against racism and religious
persecution. By issuing their
editorial, they claim America to be
just as mad as Khadafy.
By doing this, they equate the actions of a government who works
against racism and persecution with
the same disdain as a government
that demands that all Jews be executed. The Ubyssey must stop their
hypocricy and stand up for its
values and principles.

THE    UBYSSEY
Page 17
The scene is bright, fresh, and alive. Three ultra-thin
Madonna clones bounce along a busy avenue, skipping
to their favourite beat, draped in their favourite fashions,
and drinkin their favourite drink. That's Diet Coke, and
they love it. You can tell by just looking at them. This commercial is beamed daily into millions of homes, and you can
bet the people there love Diet Coke too. More importantly,
they love aspartame, the 'natural' sweetener that's turning
the food industry upside down.
The reasons why these would-be Madonnas love Diet Coke — and the approximately
70 other soft drinks, desserts, and calorie-
conscious foods in which aspartame is found
— are obvious. When the non-nutritive saccharin had been banned and then re-
approved for commercial use in the United
States following charges of being carcinogenic, America looked for something
new to satisfy its sweet tooth.
Protests from dentists and health food advocates, as well as well as then-record high
prices, were scaring consumers from sugar,
so a new alternative was needed. Along came
aspartame, a non-cancerous nutritive that
had been known of for years, but never approved by the powerful Food and Drug Administration until 1981. And unlike saccharine, which left a metallic, bitter aftertaste, aspartame provides a pleasant, sweet
sensation.
For G. D. Searle and Co., the San Francisco conglomerate that produces aspartame
for about 60 million consumers in Canada
and the U.S., the results are also pleasant and
sweet. The company sold more than three
tons of the sweetener in 1984, and company
profits from aspartame alone are predicted to
soon exceedd $1 billion per year. People,
especially children, young women, and
dieters, have taken the aspartame challenge,
and everyone seems to have won.
Rod Leonard, director of the Community
Nutrition Institute in Washington, D.C.,
says there are too many unanswered questions about aspartame's safety to rest easy.
Leonard and the CNI are calling for a temporary aspartame ban until independent
studies prove the additive is safe for public
consumption.
While clinical studies have shown the
sweetener should not be used by some
groups, such as pregnant women and small
children, more and more aspartame users are
ending their love affair with the controversial
sweetener.
When Pat Tobin, now a graduate student
at Carleton University in Ottawa, saw a new
fleet of diet soft drinks flood supermarkets in
1981, she saw a new solution to her weight
problems.
"I didn't look at it like a diet pill, but I
thought I could fill up on it — that there
would be no calories," Tobin says. She took
an immediate liking to aspartame-sweetened
drinks, though soon found her fondness had
soured into what she now calls an addiction.
However, officials at the Donwood Institute
and the Addiction Research Centre, both of
Toronto, say there is no known evidence supporting the theory that aspartame is addictive, and that caffeine may be responsible.
Tobin, a recovering alcoholic, disagrees.
"I have one soft drink, and then I want
another. I know a physical addiction when I
have one, and I'm addicted to Diet Coke.
Besides, I hate coffee, and I don't eat
chocolate," says Tobin. She says she was
drinking about eight cans a day last fall,
"depending on how broke I was."
Leonard says the 18 studies currently investigating aspartame show the additive's
safety is questionable, although the respected
American Medical Association approved use
of the sweetener last summer.
"If you assume the AMA found no problem, then why are there these studies?
Aspartame shouldn't be on the market until
they are completed," he said.
The AMA decision was a re-evaluation of
original studies that led to aspartame's approval in the States. As is accepted practice,
the original studies were conducted by the
manufacturer. Leonard said the AMA's findings were inconclusive, and relied too much
on Searle for information. "I think the AMA
was influenced by Searle — they went along
with them all the way," he said.
The AMA report did observe that some
"individuals may have an unusual
sensitivity" to aspartame, notably young
children, pregnant women, and people with
phenylketonuria, or PKU, a rare genetic
disorder.
"Although use needs to be monitored for
PKU, the AMA concluded that there was no
evidence of danger to the general public, said
Harold Lubin of the AMA's Chicago headquarters. But Leonard says the AMA investigation failed to review widespread complaints about the sweetener.
"The AMA is being very cavalier about all
of it. It's as if they're playing some sort of
high-stake poker game," Leonard said.
Richard Wurtman, a researcher at the
Massachusetts Institute of Technology,
found some serious epileptic attacks are
related to aspartame consumption. Accor-
"The AMA is being very cavalier about all of it. It's as
if they're playing some sort of high-stake poker game,"
Tobin has other complaints about aspartame. Since giving up the sweetener in
January, Tobin says her health has improved. "My sleeping habits cleared up immediately — I didn't have a night in years
where I didn't wake up at least six times. But
it went away just like that," she says.
Tobin said her experiences with aspartame
and recent studies on the sweetener indicate
the additive is not safe. "Someone told me
that aspartame changes the firing order or
neurons, and that scared the shit out of me. I
found I'd leave the last letter from a word
when I was writing — it was regular enough
to make me wonder," she says.
Leonard says most of Tobin's complaints
have been found elsewhere many times
before. "Dizzyness is quite common, as well
as very severe and continuing headaches that
medication can't seem to affect," he said.
ding to Wurtman, aspartame lowers levels in
the brain that guard against seizures, making
the additive a serious risk to people
vulnerable to seizures. Other research has
shown rats given large doses of aspartame
developed uterine polyps, or small, noncancerous growths.
Aspartame also makes for booming
business in Canada, though the federal
government has taken no initiative of its own
to study aspartame. Instead, the health and
welfare department evaluated the Searle investigation approved by the FDA, and approved use of aspartame just six days after it
was approved by Washington.
John Salmimeon of the department's
health protection branch defends the government's decision as accountable and
reasonable. "We have no doubt in our
minds, based on the data that we have, that
aspartame is safe," he said. He also dismissed Leonard's objections to marketing the
product while it is still being studied in
laboratories.
"Studies on food additives are always going on. There'll be studies on aspartame for
years to come," he said.
Lubin of the AMA said "I would be surprised if evidence came to light that aspartame was unsafe."
Consumer complaints and investigations
aside, Searle must also deal with a growing
amount of media concern. Numerous articles
in the print media, as well as investigative
reports on CBC's Sunday Morning and
Market Place, have prompted Searle's
American and Canadian divisions to counter
negative publicity with a new multi-million
dollar campaign. Using press briefings,
advertising, and "information bureaus,"
Searle wants to diffuse public tension about
the sweetener. (Besides "unsafe,"
"sweetener" is one word Searle refuses to
call aspartame, because of negative impressions following the debates and subsequent
bans on saccharin and cyclamates).
Searle stresses aspartame does not cause
PKU, can be used during pregnancy, and is
fine for children, despite the AMA warnings.
It also says aspartame is a 'natural' product,
containing aspartic acid and phenylaline, two
amino acids found in many protein-enriched
foods. Searle literature heavily promotes the
"protein" connection, although as American
science writer Ellen Ruppel Shell says,
"aspartame is far from a natural construct."
Rod Leonard agrees. He says the promotion campaign is "trying to make aspartame
look like a nature product, like eggs, milk,
bananas. It isn't. It's a chemical that doesn't
occur in nature and that is produced through
only the most intense chemical
mechanisms."
As well, foods such as eggs and milk contain many other types of amino acids, and in
far less concentrations. The chemical
makeup of aspartame makes it 180 times as
sweet as sugar.
Aspartame critics say pregnant women
should not take aspartame because it may affect the mental health of the fetus. As well,
most expecting mothers don't know of the
hazards of aspartame and phenylketonuria,
or that one in sixty people carry a PKU gene
(two genes cause the disease).
Aspartame research, though, does show an
eight-can-a-day drinker like Pat Tobin is not
in danger — the limit for adults is about 12.
The limit for small children, though, is much
less than that — four. And because many
products containing aspartame, including
gum, desserts, and soft drinks are marketed
directly towards children, many may be far
exceeding the recommended limit of safety. Page 18

Speak not thy speech my boughs
among;
Put-off thy years,   wash  in  the
breeze.
My hours are peaceful centuries.
—R. W. Emerson
One hears a great deal about the
importance of Canada's forests.
They are, of course, economically
important as the basis of a major
industry. They are important for
recreation and leisure and are
culturally significant, contributing
to the arts and traditions of our
society.
Our national emblem is a sugar
maple leaf. We have always been,
as we are today, dependent on
forests. Yet how aware are we of
the natural and human forces that
consitute this heritage?
Trees and life are closely connected. After all, trees have traditionally symbolized life. We often
take them for granted, but trees are
the mainstay of our natural environment.
Whether they are purifying the
air, providing food, preventing erosion, modifying the climate,
creating habitat for wildlife or providing timber . . . trees are essential for life.
We once thought our forests
would last forever. Now they need
our concerted assistance. Forests in
Canada and around the world are
disappearing  fast,  as overcutting
and   other   twentieth   century
pressures all take their toll.
When the United Nations
declared 1985 International Youth
Year, and deliberations were going
on as to the themes it would encompass, the non-governmental
organizations at the UN proposed
and additional focus for the year to
be called The Tree Project.
Now involving 50 countries, this
program encourages youth to
become active in tree planting and
environmental awareness.
The Tree Project assumes a different profile in each country as it
responds to local conditions. In
Canada, it has developed under the
auspices of the Richard St. Barbe
Baker Foundation with the general
aim of increasing the involvement
of young people in planting, caring
for, and learning about trees.
Taking a broader overview, it
represents an opportunity for all
Canadians to assume a permanent
and well-defined share of responsibility in forestry. The expression
of such responsibility in British Columbia is quite varied and unique.
To this end, in Vancouver, Victoria and Kamloops, a number of
ceremonial plantings will take place
this Spring and Summer to commemorate community and cultural
events.
Anyone who doubts the value of
planting a symbolic tree has never
done it!
A tree planting ceremony brings
together people from all levels of
society in one place with a code of
agreement as to the importance of
our Canadian Forest Heritage. It is
an opportunity for even the most
urban dweller to personally
establish a connection between the
forest and human life.
Complementing the "hands on"
planting experience, The Tree Project also endeavours to make educational materials available to schools
and community groups. Some of
these materials were written by the
late Richard St. Barbe Baker
(1889-1982).
His life was one of service and
devotion. In his lifetime he wrote
more than 30 books and was
responsible for the planting of more
than 26 billion trees.
The Tree Project in Canada is
coordinated by the Richard St.
Barbe Baker Foundation with the
financial support of the Minister of
State for Youth, Canadian Forestry
Service, Canadian International
Development Agency and the Mut-
zart Foundation.
"Whose walketk in solitude,
Choosing light, wave, rock and
bird,
Before the money-loving herd,
Into that forester shall pass,
From these companions
Power and Grace ..."

Hamsoc could save UBC
It was very disappointing to hear
that the AMS voted not to support
the UBC Amateur Radio Society's
request for service club status
"AMS dumps Hams", Ubyssey
Mar. 21. Although Hamsoc is one
of the smaller and lower profile
clubs on campus it serves the
university community in many
ways.
One invaluable way is by providing the most sophisticated
system of passing medical information, on those injured during major
UBC sports events, that this campus has ever seen.
In addition, Hamsoc plays a role in
our community that few of us ever
think of until it is too late — that is,
disaster preparedness. Hamsoc is
the primary communications link to
the outside world should the university area encounter a mass-casualty
incident or severe structural
damage.
Should disaster strike the UBC
campus — whether it be an earthquake, chemical accident, or the
like — the communications systems
on campus would be either
overloaded or, as routinely occurs
in disasters, knocked out of commission.
The only way the large volume of
emergency messages (such as those
relaying patient information to
health care workers) could be efficiently communicated would be via
amateur radio.
Amateur radio operators (hams)
are not "CBers". Rather they are
federally examined individuals
highly trained in radio electronics,
communications law, and are
capable of operating virtually every
mode of radio communications
known (from morse code and voice
to T.V. and data transmissions) so
as to be able to reliably transfer
messages to any point on the globe.
Hamsoc members participate in
training exercises year round so that
they may provide, at a moments
notice, an efficient emergency communications link from UBC to the
rest of the province and beyond
should the inevitable occur.
Ironically, on Friday 21 March,
two days after the AMS decided
that Hamsoc could not be granted
service club status, Hamsoc set up
an emergency radio link into the interior of the province following
reports of an earthquake there.
In such events, conventional
phone lines are the first to fail.
Amateur radio then provides the
only means of communications to
the affected areas.
As it turned out, the earthquake
was relatively minor, with little or
no   damage   and   no   injuries.
However, UBC Hamsoc was fully
prepared to pass emergency information had it been necessary.
Hamsoc provided just such a service following the Mexican earthquake disaster last September.
UBC is extremely fortunate to
have an amateur radio station on
campus made up of volunteers providing essential emergency services
not provided for by any other
civilian or governmental agency.
The benefits of these services
constitute a public good and accrue
to all members of the university
community. It is in the best interests
of this community that the AMS
reconsider its decision and
wholeheartedly support the UBC
Hamsoc.

BCTV offends principles of equality
For the last few months,
B.C.T.V. has been airing commercials for the South African tourist
agency during its newscasts which
depict South Africa as a racially
harmonious and socially stable
country.
Racial harmony is shown in the
commercial by black and white people dining together in a restaurant
and also shown by black and white
players congratulating each other
after scoring a goal in a soccer
match.
This depiction bears little
resemblance to the real conditions
in South Africa, yet B.C.T.V. has
continued to show this advertisment
despite objections from social
groups. B.C.T.V. feels it is more
important to gain advertising
revenue than to stand up for Canadian principles of equality, human
rights, and democracy.
On the other hand, C.B.C and
C.K.V.U. have both rejected these
commercials because they have
realized that these advertisements
are offensive to their viewers. We
should show our approval of
C.B.C.'s and C.K.V.U.'s decision
by watching their news programming rather than B.C.T.V.
Currently, B.C.T.V. occupies top
position in the news ratings, with
over 400,000 viewers nightly.
Therefore, South African commercials are seen by a vast amount of
people almost nightly.
Although Canada is far away
from South Africa and there is little
we can do to directly stop apartheid, we can stop its promotion in
our own province. The answer is
clear: boycott B.C.T.V. News!

Caldicott understates threat
Regarding the return engagement
by Dr. Helen Caldicott to speak on
the issue of nuclear disarmament, I
totally agree with her statements
pertaining to the ignorance of the
American administration concerning the topic.
Furthermore, it would be accurate and precise to state that
above and beyond any nation on
the face of this planet, the United
States is pushing the world to the
brink of nuclear world war through
its reckless words and actions, further compounded by an attitude of
total arrogance, indifference, and
disregard for the world at large.
The narrow-minded, twisted
reasoning of this country, its
paranoia concerning communism,
its consummate fear of not being at
the center of the universe and all its
wealth, its self-interest at the detriment of the third world, its blatant
hypocracy and out-right lies in professing to place trust in God, when
in reality the only thing it places
trust in is money, having a larger
gun, and whatever else it needs to
steal from the world's poor.
Furthermore, 'the American
Dream' is nothing other than a
nightmare, a cold/heartless farce, a
lie, a facade concealing nothing less
than a chamber of horrors of injustice, murder, corruption, and
virtually boundless oppression.
Academically speaking, it
represents the most complete form
Apartheid civilizes
and protects Blacks
Anyone who opposed Apartheid
is either a Communist subversive, a
dangerous liberal or just downright
stupid. The only group of people in
South Africa whom the Western
world should be concerned about
are the Boers. After all, was it not
the Afrikaaner who farmed the
land, the Afrikaaner who built the
churches and schools, and the
Afrikaaner who developed the
country socially, culturally,
politically and economically?.
And is it not the Boer and his
family who will be threatened with
brutal and even savage extermination and extinction should subversive Communists, dangerous
liberals and yahoo-hippies like
those on campus take over?
The Zulus should be content with
their modest possessions. They
should even be thankful to the
Afrikaaners. Without the Boers
South Africa would be like Uganda
or so-called "Zimbabwe". Without
the Dutch the Zulus would be starving like other Blacks elsewhere in
Africa. Without the Boers South
Africa would be like any other
African state which means it
would be "administered" by corrupt and incompetent Black Marxists who are mere lackeys to the
Kremlin Bolsheviks.

and /or manner of brainwashing
and 'socio-integrative programming' ever unleased upon a country's
populace within the context of
recorded human history, and the
final step by the state into total
military control and the cancelation
of human rights is only a breath of
propaganda away.
In cold, hard reality, when the
Reagan administration is not busy
developing better weapons systems,
bullying smaller nations in the middle east, overthrowing democracies
through terrorist means, supporting
bloody dictatorships, capitalizing
on the world's poor, it's attempting
to 'invent' the means for further
perverting Christianity in order to
make it 'better serve' the interests
of the few, in order to serve the interests of the state.
Without the light of 'truth* and
the freedom of thought, elements
wholly undesirable in the
'totalitarian' society, the 'domino
effect' of ignorance fed on fear and
a sense of 'false patriotism' leads inevitably into war.
This is not an attempt at fiction,
but the end of mankind's existance
on this earth is rushing up upon us
like a freight train, and as never
before, the future is in the hands of
those who by some act of 'divine
will' or 'providence' have the means
for steering us all away from an end
that is so much worse than our
worst imaginings that its absolute
sickness, terror, and disgrace is far
too much for our souls' endurance.
Needless to say, this is why we're
given the choice in life to do what
we can do, for the sake of our own
survival, but more importantly, the
survival of everything we love.
The time to take your stand has
come. Don't let anything get in the
way. The world is yours, and
nothing can come between you and
it unless you let it. Please be strong,
and there's nothing that can stop
you, for the sake of life, and for the
sake of God.

From page 3
As all good things must come to an end,
the good news of work study fizzled out with
low wages offered by the federal Challenge
'85 program. Students could not save for tuition fees after paying for food and lodging.
Students were more disillusioned than
ever when the minister of labour announced
the minimum wage in B.C. — the lowest in
Canada — will remain the same. Our friends
in Victoria assert low (slave) wages encourages private industry to hire unskilled
workers.
The final crush came when students hoping
to find jobs this summer learned the feds
plan to cut funding for the Campus Employment Centre by 30 per cent. CEC manager
says he may have to cut staff or close the centre for a number of months during the summer.
And yes, the blind still led the blind at
UBC last year.
In the midst of cutbacks and lack of student jobs, National Universities Week was
declared on Oct. 27, a self-marketing effort
by Canadian universities to increase
awareness of the importence of higher educa-
Russ Fraser: "Baahh ..."
tion. The truth slipped by once again, but
clever UBC students knew the marketing efforts will show people cannot afford the luxury of the higher education touted.
Things got so out of hand on the employment front that Jacques Hebert began a
hunger strike. Twenty-one days and 27
pounds later, Hebert gets his baby back.
Concern over the fate of South Africa took
close to centre stage campus news this year.
Earlier in the year, Students for a Free
Southern Africa — a small but growing anti-
apartheid group — circulated a petition
among students urging AMS to stop selling
products distributed by companies with interests in South Africa.
But the group that makes important decisions for students every day said they could
not make a moral decision on behalf of
UBC'ers to boycott South African goods.
They decided instead to mount posters in
SUB (when no one was looking) which inform students of South African connections.
While undergraduates cannot make moral
decisions, graduates can.
They presented a 350 signed petition to
force the grad centre to boycott products
made by companies who have ties with South
Africa.
Meanwhile students and groups attacked
the AMS, claiming it is hypocritical for a student representative body not to speak out for
UBC students in condemning apartheid.
October 11 was declared National
Student's Day against Apartheid.
A vigil and a service took place outside the
Bank of Montreal on campus to show
solidarity against the apartheid system.
Student council finally made a moral decision over whether to boycott South African-
tied products. They decided not to ban the
sale of Rothmans and Carling O'Keefe products from SUB despite a 500 signed petition
presented by Students for a Free Southern
Africa.
Meanwhile, a South African lawyer told a
group in SUB that leaving South Africa to
solve its own problems is like leaving a slave
owner to decide when to end slavery.
Despite various charges, UBC's administration decided not to release information about its holdings with countries and
banks that have South African ties. At a
board of Governor's meeting, students learned about UBC's $7.5 million connection.
While almost no one on campus could
decide whether to boycott apartheid, McGill
races ahead to be the first Canadian universi-
The year continues
ty to divest itself of all its ties with South
Africa.
Dalhousie also considered divesting itself of
its $5 million South Africa investments.
Unlike UBC, Carleton University found it
could make moral decisions. Student council
voted to boycott South African products
after a successful lobby by a campus anti-
apartheid group.
While UBC continued to flounder, York
university followedMcGill to become the second university in Canada to withdraw all of
its investment funds from companies with
holdings in South Africa, estimated at $8.9
million.
But the university of Toronto did not take
the initiative of McGill and York — they considered divesting only from Canadian companies that fail to adhere to the fed's code of
conduct for operating in South Africa.
Meanwhile, Students for a Free Southern
Africa made more noise: they planned a rally
at the board of governor's meeting to make
sure the board pulled UBC's investments in
banks and companies out of South Africa.
But the small showout was not enough to
change the board's mind, which decided to
postpone any decision.
The board's decision was touted "halfhearted," but confirmed that APATHY still
exists at UBC. South Africa became a non-
issue for many students and faculty. Not one
faculty association or student council
member who cared enough to do anything
about apartheid could be found on campus.
Other things happened on Campus news
this year too.
By late December, the first Godiva letter
appeared in the letters sections of The
Ubyssey.
January and February are marked with
loud noise from students who stated their
"yes" or "no" to the annual Engineering
event.
As battles raged between Engineers and
those opposed to the ride, secret meetings
took place behind closed doors and in the
president's office.
UBC'ers were astonished when the geers
decided to relent to progressive attitudes and
bury the ride — but not the lady. Instead,
Mr. Ed is dead. He will long be mourned, but
the tradition probably won't.
Engineering week proceeded in spite of the
funeral, and a red letter "E" mysteriously
disappeared from the Ridge Theatre with
very suspicious timing.
Vancouver police say they suspect a local
"equestrian group" was responsible for the
deed, but no representatives from the UBC
equestrian group were available for comment.
At the same time, a dispute erupted over
the fate of 12 teaching staff at UBC who
received notices of termination by the university senate, who declared their jobs were
redundant. Tenure became a sensitive issue
on campus, but the majority of faculty staff
agreed to staff lay offs in times of financial
emergency.
There were new faces on campus this year.
UBC got a new president following the
resignation of George Pederson. David
Strangway made an immediate "in" with
students by drinking beer in the pit.
The new pres saw potential in UBC despite
overwhelming cutbacks in education.
And the standing vice president of
Academic no longer stands. Daniel Birch was
appointed Vice president of academic by the
board of governors.
The AMS also got a new president — lucky
Simon Seshadri became the "brains" behind
council for the next year.
Students did not mourn the loss of Pat
McGeer, a rather unfriendly sort of guy.
The traditional Hallowe'en story ushered
in October. This year's story required the
mention of a T-bird, a goldfish in Nitobe
gardens, SUB expansion, Pat McGeer, the
president's mansion, and Wreck Beach. An
imaginative student rose to the challenge to
win an expensive night dining at a crazy mex-
ican restaurant.
In days of deteriorating education and the
threat of nuclear war, it is comforting to
know that God still exists at UBC.
Pat McGeer: "Baahh
Russ Fraser replaced the aging McGeer as the
new universities minister. The new minister
likes engineers.
Peace was another concern of students this
year, who learned that nuclear anxiety affects
the psychological health of children and
young people.
To show its solidarity against the arms
race, B.C. had its first provincial peace conference which will pave the way for future national peace conferences.
On the health scene, Vancouver aids victims found difficulty receiving dental work at
UBC because it lacked the finances for
separate aids dental clinic.
Sometimes UBC makes medical
breakthroughs, and this year UBC came out
on top with the impressive works of three
UBC prof's who discovered a new way to
treat cancer. The profs were rewarded with a
sizeable grant from NSERC.
John Turner visited campus this year to
speak his mind on government treatment of
education. Afterwards, Turner made himself
at home inside the memory-laden walls of the
Ubyssey.
Engineers
same block, same chips.
A poll conducted among 300 people after a
debate over the existence of God showed 55
per cent of people believed in God.
On a sourer note, an American efficiency
team, Ritchie and Company, told UBC how
to save money. This caused an uproar among
union leaders who claimed the test removes
worker's incentive and lowers morale.
Meanwhile, thieves suffering from the high
cost of education stole cheddar cheese, sleeping mats and a family of gerbils from a UBC
daycare centre.
Suspects also protested the need for a new
daycare centre after the fire marshall
declared the existing army huts must be abandoned.
March was no longer a time for laughter
and camaraderie. Instead, it was officially
deemed Anti-Expo month.
The Ubyssey reported on a host of problems linked with the $800 million monster
with a $400 million deficit. "Mega-project
logic" wasbeset with wildcat strikes, faulty
architecture, low-paying jobs and a giant
hockey stick.
Another Bennett legacy, skytrain, did not
help UBC students at all; the concrete
monster ventures nowhere near either B.C.
university, and the connections are
miserable.
On a much sadder note, 1986 mourned the
loss of Norman McKenzie, UBC president
from 1944-62. He will be remembered as a
respected administrator and a wonderful
human being who "knew everybody's name,
who remembered your kid's names."
While campus news churned all year long
from the brains of weary young reporters,
when all the late nights at the printers came
to a screeching halt, we, too, look back on a
memorable year — when we are conscious
enough to do so. As staffers, we had our own
share of news to reflect upon this year.
The Ubyssey had to deal with a petition
circulated by an anonymous group who asked the AMS to improve the paper's editorial
content and to correct "biased" reporting.
The AMS did not act on the petition,
however, because they were aware of the high
standards of journalism The Ubyssey
newspaper maintains.
Of course we make mistakes too, but they
are, for the most part, deliberate. Please call
Moammar Quadaffi for any parking incon-
viences this year.
Goodbye to all, and a special farewell to
our friend Doug Collins, who also reads The
Ubyssey. Page 22
