Array 'Shut up,' board tells Sihota
The UBC board of governors is
putting pressure on student
member Moe Sihota to be less open
with the press about board affairs.
The board grilled Sihota for
more than an hour Tuesday about
his disclosures to The Ubyssey but
board members were later more
than usually reluctant to talk about
the private meeting.
Arts senator Paul Sandhu, a
close friend of Sihota, said Sihota is
afraid the board will ask for his
resignation at its November
meeting if he continues to make
public things that occur in the
closed sessions of board meetings.
Sihota, obviously shaken by the
meeting and the theft the previous
night of much of his confidential
board   material   from   Sandhu's
office (see story page 3), refused
comment Wednesday.
Sources said the board could ask
at its November meeting for
Sihota's resignation if he continued
to speak so freely in the press. If he
refused to resign they would
simply adjourn the meeting and
cancel the December meeting,
Sihota's last as a board member.
Sihota has said he will not be
returning to UBC next year.
Sihota's defence at Tuesday's
meeting was that he sees himself
as a student representative and
ombudsman with a responsbility to
inform his constituents, students,
about university affairs.
Other board members said he
should have brought up issues at
board meetings before making an
issue of them.
In other businessat the board
meeting, the administration
congratulated itself on receiving
statistics indicating UBC spends
more on academic items and less
on administration than the 22 other
largest Canadian universities.
Administration president Doug
Kenny pointed out that one possible
interpretation of those statistics is
that UBC does not have enough
planners deciding how that
academic money should be spent.
No board member was able to
define "academic" either, when
the question was raised by Sihota.
UBC research director Richard
Spratley   criticized   provincial

funding of UBC research in a
report to the UBC Board.
"Support of UBC research by
provincial ministries continues at
very low levels," the statement
says.
"A discouraging development
was the recent dissolution of the
B.C. health sciences research fund
which, for two years, had supported health research in the
province.
"Promises of medical research
support from provincial lottery
income have yet to be fulfilled."
Figures accompanying the
statement showed mat U.S. And
other foreign sources contributed
more to UBC research than the
provincial government did.
Of the total $17,074,742 funding
for 1976-77 UBC research, 4.8 per
cent came from provincial and
municipal governments. In a
further breakdown, figures show
the provincial government actually contributed $770,696 or 4.5
per cent.
U.S. and other foreign sources
contributed $1,261,281, or 7.4 per
cent in the same period.
The largest non-Canadian
contribution came from "national
institutes of health," which
donated $374,937. Contributions
from the U.S. military totalled
$87,687.
The provincial governement's
largest contribution last year came
from the forestry ministry which
handed out $118,081.
The graduate studies faculty
received the largest chunk of
foreign money — $386,860 — and,
coincidentally, the smallest
amount of provincial money —
$10,782.
The agricultural sciences faculty
was allotted $189,644 in provincial
funding, the largest amount given
by that source to university
research. The agriculture faculty
received no money from U.S. or
foreign sources. Neither did the
education, forestry or law
faculties.
The largest amount awarded by
any source went to the science
faculty which received $4,319,051
from "federal granting agencies."
Other sources of funding were
federal departments and agencies,
foundations and non-profit
agencies, Canadian companies and
the UBC budget.
SRA votes down
staff worker idea

SENSITIVE ARTIST applies delicate strokes to modern art sculpture/painting on steps to Sedgewick Library.
Meanwhile, CIA agent disguised as student watches for signs that would betray painter as dangerous communist plotting overthrow of government. Scene took place on Main Mall Wednesday.
The student representative
assembly voted Wednesday not to
hire a staff worker for the women's
committee.
The decision was made during
discussion of the proposed Alma
Mater Society budget for 1977-78.
The draft budget recommended
spending $4,000 for a staff worker,
based on a salary of $800 a month
for five months.
AMS Director of finances
Shannon-Dale Hart said hiring a
staff member for the women's
committee would have been a
limited pilot project which would
not actomatically be continued.
Committee member Fran
Watters said "we can operate a
womens' committee without a staff
worker but we were given a
mandate to provide certain services."
"If we are to carry on that
mandate we need a staff worker."
When a woman comes to the
office who has been raped or needs
advice there has to be someone
there, she said.
Watters noted there is more
growth in membership in the
womens' committee than any other
AMS  committee and  urged the
SRA not to "nip the committee in
the bud."
Fran Watters is also the arts
undergraduate president.
Student board of governors
member Moe Sihota said the
committee is the largest and has
worked much harder than most.
He said "on the basis of
programs across the country, it
has been shown that volunteer
work can only go so far."
But student board member Basil
Peters said "the committee does
not seem to be so large, and in any
case the committee should provide
a detailed budget and job
description before asking the AMS
For money."
Forestry representative Dave
Bulger said a staff worker should
not be hired. "If the committee has
a high interest and there are a lot
of volunteers then they should be
able to do the work."
Agriculture representative Al
McNeil said "undergraduate
societies are much larger than the
committee,   yet   they   survive  on
volunteer help."
Student senator Anne Katrichak
said a staff worker may tend to
dominate the committee. "There

Administration president Doug Kenny,
maybe? Close, but no cigar. The
university's heftiest paycheque during
the 1976-77 academic year was pulled
down by Milton Miller, head and
professor of psychiatry.
Kenny's paltry $61,636, barely more
than the prime minister makes, is only
good for second place. His $2,176 raise
this year still won't pull him even with
MiUer.
Kenny and Miller were only two of 158
professors and administrators who
received more than $40,000 last year,
according to UBC's financial statement,
released this week.
Vice-presidents Chuck Connaghan,
Erich Vogt, Michael Shaw and Bill
White, received $56,437 each, but they
were beaten out of the bronze by Charles
Bourne, a special advisor to Kenny, who
was paid $58,438.
Twenty others belong to the 50-Grand
Club, including one woman; in all, there
are only three women in the 40-Grand
Club: Mavis Teasdale, whose $51,870
isn't bad for an associate professor of
pediatrics: nursing head Muriel
Uprichard ($41,122), and associate
psychiatry professor Susan Stephenson
($49.214).
Applied sciences dean Liam Finn was
paid $53,577 and put in for $10,954 in
expenses. But the common wisdom is
that he paid back most of that $53,577
when he announced last week he was
resigning as dean, following bad
publicity surrounding his moonlighting
activities.
The salary information is all available
in UBC's financial statement, which the
Public Bodies Information Act forces
them to publish. Besides UBC's balance
sheet and statement of revenues and
expenses, it lists salaries paid to all
university employees, and the money
spent on supplies and services for the last
academic year.

Last fall a referendum was held
to determine whether UBC
students would join NUS and the
B.C. Students' Federation.
Although the referendum failed to
get the required two-thirds approval, a majority of students
voted in favor of joining.
Senator-at-large Maureen Peters

The issue will be discussed again

Gage students losing rent fight
By STEVE HOWARD
The 110 residents of the Gage low
rise residence are unlikely to win
their fight to have rent increases
cut after the Residential Tenancy
Act is proclaimed, the chairman of
the student housing access committee said Wednesday.
Dave Van Blarcom said Monday
the Rent Review Commission will
not rule on whether the 1977-78
Gage low rise rent increases
should have exceeded 10.6 per cent,
the maximum annual increase
allowed by the Landlord and
Tenant Act.
Rents in the Gage low rise were
increased to $936 a person from
$786, an increase of 18.9 per cent.
Gage low rise is a three-story
apartment complex for childless
married students.
The residential Tenancy Act,
which has received third reading in
the legislature under the title Bill
86, spells out that ceilings on rent
increases do not apply to
"residential premises owned or
operated by a university as defined
in the Universities Act. . ."
Thus all UBC residences are
excluded from the new act and
from protection against massive
rent increases.
The wording of the current Act is
not clear about whether universities are included in the Act.
The     Act     covers     tenancy

board of governors documents
belonging to student of governor's
board representative Moe Sihota
were stolen.
Sihota told police he locked the
office door when he left Sandhu's
off ice at 5:30 p.m. Monday. Sandhu
noticed some of his files scattered
on the floor when he arrived at his
SUB office at 9 a.m. Tuesday and
the theft was discovered.
Sihota said the stolen documents
included almost all his board
material excluding financial information, which he says he keeps
at his home. Nothing of Sandhu's
was missing.
There was no sign of force and
the thief apparently got in with a
key or by picking the lock.
Fishy tale of
lockpicking and
drug addiction
A thief with a strange sense of
humor has stolen a small amount
of drugs from UBC's health
sciences centre and left a dead fish
in exchange.
Inside the fish's mouth was found
a glass tube with a message that
reportedly said, "I am addicted to
drugs. I also pick locks."
A very small amount of
methamphetamines were taken
and the incident is being treated as
a prank instead of a theft, according to a health sciences centre
spokesman who refused to be
identified.
Sgt. Al Hutchinson of the RCMP
university detachment refused to
comment other than to say the
incident will be investigated by the
RCMP or the UBC traffic and
security department.
Publicity about the incident
could encourage people to think
that UBC's security is low and a
drug theft easy , when this is not
necessarily true, the centre
spokesman said.
arrangements, but not licensee
arrangements. In a tenancy, the
tenant has "right of esclusive
possession" or control of the
premises.
In a licensee relationship,
control of the premises remains
with the owner, in cases such as
hotels and boarding houses.
"Our legal advice to that the low
rises are tenancy arrangements,"
said Van Blarcom.
"Students are being denied their
civil rights."
On October, 1974, rentalsman
Barrie Clark announced that UBC
residences are covered by the Act,
after the administration applied
for an exemption.
And in 1975 a commission task
force report recognized that, according to the Act, student
residences were subject to rent
controls. Clark then recommended
that legislation be changed to
exclude them.
"Students are being screwed
during the change in legislation,"
said Van Blarcom.
The new act will be retroactive
to May 1, which means it will apply
to UBC residences immediately.
"The philosophy is that the
residences at the university should
be self-supporting," said Van
Blarcom. "To my knowledge we're
the only university in Canada that
doesn't have housing subsidies."
He said if the board had limited
the rent increases to 10.6 per cent,
or 8$83.34 per student, the total
cost to administration would
be $7,071, which is the added increase paid by 108 students.
"It illustrates the mentality of
the administration in a time of
budget cutbacks," said "Van
Blarcom.
He said he tried to talk to Erich
Vogt, administration vice-
president of student and faculty
affairs, about the rent increases,
but "Vogt was totally insensitive
and totally tasteless. He talked
about how wealthy he was and how
his daughter lives in a $300-a-
month apartment."
"We could appeal on a Rent
Review Commission ruling first to
the commission itself and then to
county court. We could take
criminal proceedings, but that's
expensive.
"Everything we've go to do,
we've got to do before this Act is
proclaimed."
Van Blarcom said he wrote to the
commission in July asking for a
ruling on the low rise rent increases.
The rent jump in the low rises
was the highest increase at UBC
this year. The rent of a double
room in Totem Park was given the
lowest boost, an increase of 3.2 per
cent.

Feds play close to chest on Quebec
By MIKE BOCKING
The Trudeau government is
laying the groundwork for a violent
confrontation with Quebec, the
editor of the book Prospects for a
Socialist Canada said Wednesday.
Art Young said federal health
and welfare minister Marc
Lalonde and prime minister Pierre
Trudeau "are whipping up anti-
Quebecois sentiment for a physical
battle against Quebec."
Young was speaking to 15 people
at a meeting sponsored by the UBC
Young Socialists.
"Lalonde said he is against using
force to keep Quebec in Confederation if things are decided
democratically," he said, "but
Lalonde will decide what is
democratic."
Young also criticized the NDP
for   "collaborating"   with   the
Liberals.
The federal wing of the NDP has
jumped on the national unity
bandwagon, he said, and premier
Ed Shreyer of Manitoba has
suggested armed force might be
used to keep Quebec in Confederation.
"The Quebec crisis is the deepest
crisis we have faced and this
country may well not survive it,"
said Young.
"The proof of this are the events
around the new language law in
Quebec."
Tne Official Language Act was a
self-defensive, limited measure on
the part of the Quebecois to protect
their language, but this measure
was met by massive protest from
YOUNG
socialist author
English-Canadians inside and
outeide Quebec, he said.
Young said Quebec's national
struggle is also the most serious
crisis facing Canada's "establishment."
"What's at stake for the rulers is
their profits," he said. A unified
Canada is most beneficial to the
capitalists' interests, said Young.
"Six million Quebecois have
decided to leave Canada and the
only way they will be stopped is by
civil war.
"It is not possible to reform the
oppression of Quebec within
Canada," he said, but the federal
government is trying to keep
Quebec "through economic blackmail and military threat."
But Young said he does not
support the Parti Quebecois.
"We stand for independence and
socialism, whereas the Parti
Quebecois is a capitalist party," he
said.
"We stand for the right of
French-Canadians to their national
self-determination and to be able to
choose the kind of government they
want."
Young said the issue of English-
Canadians in Quebec and the Official Language Act" has been
confused by the propaganda
coming out of Ottawa."
"English-Canadians are in no
danger of being oppressed in
Quebec." The majority of big
corporations in Quebec are
American or English-Canadian
and thus favor the English when
hiring, he said.
"The official equality which
exists right now in Quebec is really
inequality because of the social
and  economic   conditions   which
exist favoring the English."
But Young criticized the Parti
Quebecois for not nationalizing the
asbestos industry as they had
promised before their election
victory Nov. 15 last year.
Young said "the Parti Quebecois
will be the form of political expression for Quebecois for awhile,
but eventually there will be a mass
socialist movement."
Commenting on the future of a
socialist movement in Canada,
Young said it will be "part and
parcel of a similar movement in
the United States."
This is necessary because qf the
close economic, social and cultural
ties between the two countries, he
said.
Young also attacked the NDP for
its response to the federal
government's wage and price
controls. "The federal NDP only
reluctantly supported the Oct. 14
strike," and premiers Allan
Blakeney of Saskatchewan and Ed
Shreyer of Manitoba opposed the
strike "while in B.C., Barrett was
breaking strikes."
The Oct. 14 strike in 1976 was
organized by the Canadian Labor
Congress and protested the federal
government's wage and price
controls.
Young attacked the federal
NDP's proposed work program to
stimulate the economy, saying it
would provide jobs for only 300,000
leaving 1 million people still
unemployed.
"That is a measure of the NDP's
scope and imagination," he said.
Young said there should be "a re-
evalution of the NDP." Page 4

BoG secrecy
dangerous
We're getting tired of saying this.
But there is too much secrecy around UBC, and until
the board of governors and the administration learns this
amazingly simple fact, UBC will regularly emerge in the
press with pie on its face.
It's getting a little frustrating delivering this message
over and over again. Is the board of governors like the
proverbial mule which requires a two-by-four applied to
its rear end in order to get a point across? It's beginning to
seem that way.
The board has been embarrassed on many occasions
in the past year because information that should have been
public anyway was leaked to the press. The board and the
administration responded with 'no comments' and UBC
wound up looking like the mule with the sore ass.
As we've pointed out before, this information could
be made public with explanations which would make UBC
look better. But no, that might be logical.
Except in the inevitable personnel decisions, board
decisions shouldn't be made if they can't stand up to
public debate. But the board seems to think it has more
brains than everyone else. Let's plug the leaks, they say,
and everything will be fine. That's naive. New leaks will
inevitably develop and further embarrassment will follow.
It is, after all, the job of the press to break down
unnecessary barriers of silence and get to the truth. But
the board has decided it can use the barrier of silence
which legitimately can be used to protect personnel cases
and very preliminary budget discussions, to cover up
almost all its activities. Considering the fact that UBC is a
public institution which has an interest in the free flow of
information, the board's position is disgusting and
dangerous.
This stupidity reached its height at Tuesday's board
meeting.
Student rep Moe Sihota was dumped on for upwards
of an hour by board members for raising important issues
in The Ubyssey. At the beginning of this Machievellian
ritual, which of course was in the closed board session
following the innocuous open session of the meeting,
board members were handed Ubyssey articles containing
statements by Sihota.
Then Sihota was attacked by board members for
raising these issues. Imagine, a student politician being
attacked for raising important issues like how cutbacks
affect the university. As far as we know, that is Sihota's
job, and the job of every other student politician.
The reason Sihota is quoted so often in The Ubyssey
is that he is one of the few student politicians who is doing
his job, which is representing students and letting students
know what he and other student representatives are doing.
Sihota has some faults, but he is about the best and most
conscientious student politician today at UBC.
It is very sad to see this university's leading governing
body dumping over a student rep when it is collectively
suffering from gross stupidity.

Women's
party
necessary
It seems unfortunate, even as a
necessity of mass media, to reduce
what are potentially innovative
ideas to a selection of quotes. Such
has been the case in the article
criticizing the likelihood of a
wmen's political party (Sept. 22).
As ex-chairwoman of the Ontario
Status of Women Laura Sabia's
efforts to form a women's political
party must be concluded from a
very real encounter within politics,
the implications of Sabia's phrase
'a male-dominated structure'
should be considered, for, if women
are to legitimately find their own
political structure, it is particularly viabletodosothrough the
form of a women's party.
While both men and women may
need the mechanics of sidestepping bureaucracy for the sake
of flexibility, this process can hold
particular difficulties for the
woman politician.
Bringing women's issues, very
real issues, to the attention of
parliamentary caucuses, overcoming sexist and 'structural'
attitudes toward women, and being
one of the few women within any
organization are simplifications of
what are almost overwhelming
deterrents to women already
within the political sphere.
To say that women's issues
should be subjugated to general
problems such as unemployment
and inflation at a time when the
momentum for women's issues
needs continuity and is reaching
some development in real terms
(abortion, rape, equal rights and
law reform) is to gloss over the
existence of women altogether.
If women like Sabia are not
prepared todeal with the politics of
women's issues, and it would be
naive to think that her perspective
did not include concern for women
and men, then who is to be thus
responsible?
We are sure Sabia would be the
first to admit that a women's
political party would be an incredible amount of work.
However, the assumption cannot
be made that a women's political
party would have the structure of
other political parties, nor can you
assume that the idea of a
women's political party is based on
that of reverse discrimination.
Instead — as something oriented
out of necessity — this is not
reducing it just to the seeking of
women's political identity but
includes the whole spectrum of
women's issues.

Thanks
The friends of the Botanical
Garden wish to thank you for your
help in publicizing the recent plant
sale for students. More than 1,500
persons, most of them students,
attended the sale and went away
with armloads of plants.
We hope they will not only enjoy
their purchases but have become
aware of the potential for future
enjoyment and education provided
by Botanic Garden.
Thank you for the write-up and
picture in The Ubyssey.
Helen Chitty
for the sale committee
Trashed
Last week you ran an article
describing the lack of funds
available from the Alma Mater
Society for the publication of The
Ubyssey. This lack of student
financial support resulted in the
necessity of obtaining advertising
sponsors.
Since the AMS will probably not
increase their financial support
of T^ie Ubyssey, permit me to
suggest a way to cut back on your
production costs, and thus keep
advertising content to a minimum.
I suggest you print fewer copies
of The Ubyssey.  On  the day of
publication, the rag is all over the
campus. For example, Sedgewick
Library is littered with Ubysseys.
The paper covers the floors,
cushions, and cubicles around the
entrance to the library. Papers can
be found thrown in every other
study carrell, spread all over every
single table, and literally filling
every garbage container.
It seems students pick up a
Ubyssey from the fresh piles and
then discard the paper when
finished with it. I find this a sad
waste of valuable paper. If fewer
copies of The Ubyssey were
available in those piles, students
would have fewer papers to throw
around, and would still have no
trouble finding a copy to read
anywhere on campus.
You may feel that the essential
problem is one of general
disregard by the students for the
cleanliness of their campus. But as
long as your rag is given out by the
thousands for free, people will grab
it and litter thoughtlessly once they
have read it.
I also suggest that you take a
walk through the library or one of
the major drop-off points of The
Ubyssey and see for yourself how
many papers lie around on the day
of publication and the following
day. Since very few people seem
to take the paper home with them,
it would not hurt to have more then
one student read the same copy. In
these times of financial restraint, I
am sure that you tend to agree with
me.

A look into the future of Quebec
By TOM HAWTHORN
Who says there isn't creative
vritingon the news pages? Today,
•taffer Tom Hawthorn, crystal ball
n hand, prognosticates about what
vill happen with the Parti
Quebecois' referendum on the
uture of Quebec. Remember, the
ruth is stranger than fiction.
The Parti Quebecois had surmised everyone by calling the
eferendum date so early. As a
esult, the independistes were way
ut in front in preparation, and had
11 the momentum behind them.
After all, setting the date for
lov. 15, 1978 could not help but
voke strong Francophone sen-
mentality on the occasion of the
econd anniversary of the PQ
ictory.
Premier Rene Levesque had
lade the announcement live on
!adio Canada from his office in the
rational Assembly in Quebec City,
ehind his desk was a huge blue
eur-de-lys flag- of Quebec and in
is lapel was a pin of the same
esign.
He spoke passionately and in
rench. "Today, Quebec is on the
ireshold of a destiny and great-
ass that we have been deprived of
>r over 200 years," he said. "Now
the time for all Quebecois to
is*?rt themselves. If we are to
ii-vive as a riation, then we must
jcome a nation. That is why I
ive come before you tonight to
•ge you to join me and vote 'oui au
depen dance'."
Levesque's speech caught the
lagination of many Quebecois
id the independence elements
ere off to a strong start.
As for the federalists, they were
lught off guard by the surprise
tferendum date. In fact, the
jebec Liberals, the traditional
deralist party of Quebec, had
iled t<>«ee»««l^ta paf^tsaiGter
id were still trying to recover
am the PQ's 1976 victory, so, it
as   the  federal   Liberal   party
which became the champion of
federalism in Quebec.
Pierre Trudeau, Canada's prime
minister in his fourth term in office, had decided to throw his huge
party machine behind the
pro-federalist campaign. After all,
Quebec was the Liberal power
base.
Trudeau's first step was to appoint cabinet ministers Marc
Lalonde and Jean Chretien as his
representatives in Quebec. In what
had become a Liberal party
tradition in 1960, they decided to
hire an advertising agency
working out of Chicago to coordinate federal political  strategy.
The stage had been set and the
lines were drawn. The whirlwind
campaign began with both sides
deluging the Quebec population
with their respective media
messages.
The PQ and Union Nationale
plan was to combine a media blitz
with neighborhood door-to-door
campaigning. All rural areas of the
province were canvassed, as were
the east-end and ethnic areas of
Montreal.
The federalists had had a difficult time at first, but eventually
the massive Liberal machine
smoothed oui the problems,
federalist st at^gy, directly
contrived fr t h( U.S. agency's
recommence "f 3, was to concentrate on ny gs with high non-
Francophone jopulations. The
agency had used the 1976 Census
Canada statistics and had decided
that demographically all the
federalists neerbd to be successful
was the Anglo; :ione vote and the
hard-cord fer'^ list Francophone
vote. i
Lalonde and Chretien agreed and
the federalist blitz was on.
Billboards and posters appeared
overnight in V % t lind and central
-#^tfMlan# in ■'parts of the
Eastern Tow.iships. To the
federalists anc Trudeau, there
appeared to be just  no way in
(freestyle)
which they could lose the election.
Statistics proved that they had won
the referendum even before the
balloting had started.
To ensure the victory, The
agency had recommended that the
federalists conduct a "scare"
campaign against an independent
Quebec in much the same fashion
as former premier Robert
Bourassa had done in the early
1970's. Unfortunately, the
federalists had forgotten that this
strategy had failed for Bourassa in
1976. This time around, the mistake
was to be fatal.
Since the October crisis of 1970, a
large number of Anglophone
Quebecers had left the province for
other parts of Canada and the U.S.
The number of emigrants increased steadily until 1977, when
there was a dramatic increase of
people leaving Quebec as a result
of the PQ Victory.
When the federalists used the
"scare" tactics, they were all too
effective. Thounsands of
Quebecers, both English and
French, realized that the
possibility of an independent
Quebec state was very real, and
they joined the others who had left
earlier.
There was a high turnout of
voters on Nov. 15. Both sides had
used every available resource to
get their supporters to the polls.
This was not a time for apathy, for
every Quebecer's future was to be
decided with this single vote.
Once the votes were tallied, they
were to be relayed by telephone to
a computer on the Platfsburg
campus of the University of New
York. Both the federalists and
independistes had decided to have
0/Mi-
Plattsburg, a small community 60
miles from Montreal, receive and
tabulate the results in order to
ensure the validity of the counting.
The final results were to be in
turn relayed to a computer terminal in the National Assembly,
where Levesque would announce
the outcome to a special sitting of
the National Assembly.
As the 10 p.m. (EDT) deadline
approached, the tension
in the chambers had become
almost unbearable. Not a single
MNA was absent, the spectators'
and press galleries were filled to
capacity, and television cameras
were broadcasting the scene to
millions of Quebecers and
Canadians.
At precisely 10 o'clock,
Levesque, Education minister
Jacques-Yvan Morin, and House
Leader Robert Burns emerged
from the office housing the computer terminal. Not one said a
word as they shuffled quickly down
the corridor. Levesque tightly
clutched the computer's printout
sheet.
As Levesque took the podium
and received recognition from the
speaker, a great quiet overtook the
assembly. Levesque lit a cigarette
and leaned towards the
microphone.
"In accordance with the wishes
of the people of Quebec," he said,
"who have just voted 58 per cent in
favor of an independent Quebec, I
move that. . ."
The rest of the motion was
drowned out, as all but the six
Anglophone MNA's cheered.
The press gallery had emptied
immediately, and a new nation, la
Republique du Quebec, had been
born.
. Reader's Digest reports that you, the people of Quebec, are behind our cause. And with this
ow of support, Iwill personally carry out our next major step.. .A symbolic act that will inspire
s hearts of all people who foresee a 'separation'... I will secretly leave Quebec and spend a
»ekend alone with Mick Jagger.

Dinos dim 'Birds playoff chances
CALGARY (CUP) - The UBC
fiunderbird football team had its
limb back to football prominence
bort-circuited Tuesday, losing 18-
to the University of Calgary
•inosaurs at McMahon Stadium.
TTiecontest was the second game
i a two-game series between the
lubs, with UBC winning the first
ncounter 34-14 Saturday at
hunderbird Stadium. With that
ctory the 'Birds had momen-
rily climbed to eighth in national
otball rankings, but yesterday's
ss is sure to leave them out of the
p ten when new ratings are
teased.
The first half highlighted a
■oblem which has plagued the
;irds this season: impressive
atistics and little scoring. UBC
id lOfirstdowns to Calgary's four
id 160 yards offence to Calgary's
, but left the field at halftime
:th only a 3-3 tie. Gary Metz of the
irds and Jim Hartley of the
nos   exchanged   26-yard   field
goals in the second quarter. Metz
also attempted a 37-yard
placement in the dying seconds of
the half, but had the kick go wide.
The second half saw a complete
reversal of form. The offensive line
of the Dinos began providing the
holes for running backs John
McCorquindale and Gord Goodwin.
"We had a lot of miscues in the
first half," said Calgary offensive
tackle Dan Brown. "But in the
second half, our timing was a lot
better, and that made the difference. "
"Gord (Goodwin~> iid a hell of a
job leading «..- I ing for John
(McCorquindtae* said Calgary
head   coach   Petei   Connellan.
McCorquindale finished the
game with 171 yards on 33 carries
with one touchdown.
On the other side of the ledger,
the Dinos completely shut down the
vaunted Thunderbird passing
attack. In the second half, UBC
quarterback    Greg    Gardner,
subbing for the injured Dan Smith,
completed only one of seven passes
for a loss of two yards. Another
was intercepted and nearly cost
UBC a touchdown.
The Dinos took the lead for the
first time when a 30-yard field goal
attempt by Hartley travelled wide
and right out of the end zone for a
single point. Metz replied with a
three-pointer from the 22-yard line
three minutes later to put UBC
briefly back in the lead, 6-4.
Calgary followed with its longest
drive of the game, moving 75 yards
in 12 plays, all on the ground, for its
first major. The score was set up
by a 13-yard scamper by Calgary
pivot Darrel Moir to the Thunderbird two, with McCorquindale
cracking over on the next play. An
attempt to a two-point conversion
failed.
Midway through the final frame,
with the Dinos facing a second and
32 situation, McCorquindale
recorded a 55 yard single on a
quick kick to increase the Calgary
lead to 11-6.
Two plays later, UBC coughed up
the ball on the exchange between
Gardner and Gord Penn, and Dave
Bacon recovered for Calgary on
the UBC 44. Six plays later,
Calgary's Grant Newell had a 35-
yard pass from Moir deflected into
his hands as he fell into the end
zone. Hartley added the extra
point, and the game ended 18-6.
Statistically, Calgary picked up
18 first downs to UBC's 16. The
Dinos rushed for 249 yards and
passed for 75, with a net offence of
316 yards. The 'Birds managed 169
rushing and 85 passing with a net
offence of 246 yards. Moir completed three of 12 passes, while
Gardner and Smith completed only
seven of 23.
The only bright spot for UBC in
an otherwise dismal performance
was the running of Glen Wallace.
The stocky halfback rambled for
133 yards on 23 carried, making it

China changing political philosophy
China has abandoned, or at least
drastically modified, the
philosophy that has guided that
nation since the Communist
revolution in 1949, China reporter
David Bonavia said Tuesday.
Political developments in China
since Mao Tse-tung's death two
years ago indicate China's current
leaders arehaving second thoughts
about the Maoist/Leninist maxim
that a nation could skip the
capitalist stage of evolution,  he
told   325   people   who   jammed
Buchanan 102.
"Here is obviously a great power
trying to come to terms with the
fact that it hasn't yet had a full-
scale industrial revolution," said
Bonavia, a reporter for the Far
Eastern Economic Review.
"They may still have to go
through the upheavals Western
nations had to go through with," he
said. Recent introduction of such

capitalistic methods as wage increases and material inventives
for increasing production may be
"an attempt to establish a genuine
Chinese socialism."
Since Mao's death, current
Chinese leaders Hua Kuo-feng and
Teng Hsiao-ping have left behind
his radical legacy and are
replacing it with this new one,
Bonavia said.
"The radical policies of the last
11 years are being modified,
dismantled, some people would
even say abandoned," he said.
Mao's military tactics and his
priority on bringing rural living
conditions up to urban living
conditions have been adandoned,
Bonavia said. "Rural construction
projects are diverting labor away
from fhe necessary task of growing
crops."
Maoist tactics of retreating
before an advancing army and
waging a popular guerrilla war
against it, tactics that won the
revoluntionary war, are being
replaced by a new emphasis on a
technology-intensive, conventional-tactics army.
"They have emphasized the need
for border vigilance, including
interesting enough, Yunnan
province, which indicates they
may be continuing to have border
trouble with the Vietnamese."
The institution of material incentives in an effort to increase
productivity is also evidence that
Chinese economic thinking is
changing, Bonavia said.

Arts students will be paying $1
more for their student fees next
year if a referendum is passed on
Oct. 19, arts undergraduate society
president Fran Watters said
Wednesday.
The AUS may no longer get funds
from the Alma Mater Society as in
former years, she said.
AUS funds may be slashed 50 per
cent by the AMS this year, and
may be eliminated next year,
Watters said. The AUS now gets
$1,200 a year.
"The AUS is never sure if it will
even get the money until
December," she said. This leaves
AUS finances and planned activities uncertain for the second
half of the year.
"Money from locker.rentals and
vending machines is not enough."
Watters said she would like to see
the fee increase to eliminate these
problems.
"Half the AUS clubs are defunct
for lack of funds. One of our main
goals is to have a strong clubs
organization, and the other is to
create a more active arts identity
via newsletters, publicity and
social events."
AMS president, John DeMarco,
said that grants to undergraduate
societies are not necessary. Now
that undergraduate societies are
allowed to assess fees from their
members, they are expected to
take care of their own expenses, he
said.
The AUS had a similar
referendum last year which was
defeated by a small margin.
About 750 students must vote two
thirds in favor of the referendum to
make the fee levy permanent.
Otherwise, the motion must be
approved by two-thirds of the
students voting for it to carry for
one year. It must then be approved
each year until a quorum of 750 is
reached.
