mahnous; I n a state
"Experimental theatre, in commercial times, does real well," declared playwright Tom Cone Thursday night in a lecture at Gastown's
Coburg Gallery. In hislecture, Cone
castigated the commercialism of
Vancouver's live theatres, saying we
need "real artistic directors, not program directors."
If there is a "real" artistic director
in Vancouver, one who promises to
deliver the sort of daring, risk-taking
theatre demanded by Cone, it would
have to be Morris Panych, recently-
appointed artistic director of Tam-
ahnous Theatre.
Panych is best-known to Vancouver audiences as the co-author of
Last Call: A Post-Nuclear Cabaret,
and for his performance last spring
as Mozart in the Playhouse production of Amadeus.
Dressed casually in thongs, loose
harem pants, and an old sweatshirt,
[the unassuming Panych burst forth,
ven in an early morning interview.
[Constantly gesturing, sometimes using a cigarette as prop, Panych
agrees, "without experimental theatre, there is no real theatre."
Panych, a member of the Tamah-
nous collective since 1980, says most
theatre companies in other large cities
do not merely re-create productions,
they create new works. "That's what
makes theatre exciting."
But unlike Cone, Panych is not so
sure the experimental works his
company is currently creating will
do well. "I'm confident about the
shows, but I'm not as confident about
audience response."
"Alternative theatre cut
backs are criminal"
Despite the difficulties, Panych
says he enjoys working for an exper-
mental theatre like Tamahnous. He
says he can always go back to working for a company which pays him
"enough to eat at restaurants twice a
week. But I really prefer creating to
by €lena Miller
re-creating, don't you?" Panych is
hoping that Vancouver audiences
have the same preference.
Nevertheless, Panych is planning
an ambitious season of all-new, never-before-seen works. "We won't be
doing plays like (British playwright
Caryl Churchill's) Top Girls," he
says, referring to last season's most
successful Tamahnous production.
Instead, Tamahnous will present
three new shows, two developed from
within the company, and one from
without. The first show this fall is a
collective work entitled "Passing
Remarks", which Panych describes
as a "collage dance/movement
Next is a musical written by Pa-
" All of us lose sleep,
it's intense all the time'
which Panych describes as a "social
comedy". Finally, David King, author of Garage Sale, has been commissioned to write a new play for
Panych admits that there will be a
lot of work to do producing three
new shows. "All of us are losing
sleep," he says. He describes the atmosphere at Tamahnous as "totally
intense all the time. It's all-involving,
all-demanding - we can't afford even
one person not to care."
Pressure was added to the company in July, when Tamahnous
learned that their grant from the
Canada Council had been cut by 20
per cent. "It's incredibly frustrating
when every time you turn around
there are financial problems."
Panych is bitter about the lack of
government support for experimental theatre. "It's a crime that an al
ternative theatre company gets cut
back when grants to commercial
companies are just frozen," he' says.
But there are signs that Tom
Cone's promise of success for experimentation in commercial times may)
turn out to be true for Tamahnous.
This summer Panych organized a
variety show entitled Vaudeville East
which runs four Sundays (August 12
and 26 are still remaining). Audience|
response so far has been excellent
the' shows have sold out.
"But," says Panych, "we haven't!
seen a red cent from this. People
think this is a commercial show - it's
not. With that many performers, we
have nothing left over." Even so,|
Panych intends to expand Vaudeville
East to seven shows next summer.

Prime minister John Turner has
spent a grand total of two days in the
riding he is contesting. His lawn signs
finally appeared Monday.
Supporters   deny   reports   that
Turner's campaign is in trouble.
Helen Patterson, a member of the
Liberal party's media committee, said
Friday Turner "has certainly made a
point of being in Quadra." She said
Turner visited B.C. forfive.daysand

"He has responsibilities throughout the province and the country,"
Patterson said, adding that she did
not know when Turner will be in
Quadra next.
Darlene Young, Quadra liberal
campaign media liason, said Turner
may visit three or four more times
before the September 4 federal election. Young added that Turner's
daughter Elizabeth will be in Quadra
continually. "He's spending as much
time as he possibly can," Young said.
UBC political science professor
Don Blake said it is common practice
for the prime minister to spend little
time in the riding he is running in.
"Whether that's a good idea or not is
another question," he said.
Blake said Turner can use the media for exposure in lieu of actual
visits, adding that he did not think
Turner's lack of a presence in Quadra
and his late nomination will affect

"The campaign doesn't really get

Feds concerned
about education
Edmonton (CUP) - Education may
replace health care and energy as the
next major issue of confrontation
between the federal and provincial
governments, says one federal
Marc Arnal, Secretary of State
prairie regional director, told delegates at a recent International Youth
Year conference that the federal government is very concerned about
the erosion of the right to post-secondary education. He said the situation is so "volatile" and such a
"significant political issue" that federal officials are looking for constitutional ways to intervene in educational jurisdiction.
The federal government provides
the majority of funding for post-se-
condry education while the provinces
are solely responsible for education
The governments and university
administrations have used enrollment increases as a scapegoat for
their lack of appropriate funding to
post-secondary education, said conference participants Floyd Hodgins
and Donna Kassian.
The two, both student council representatives at the University of
Alberta, said the blame for decreasing funding and accessibility lay
squarely on the shoulders of the
provincial government.
4754 W. 10th
"The Alberta government refuses
to adequately fund post-secondary
institutions even though they pro-
portedly view education as an important part of the future," said Kassian. "Rather than regard the increase
in enrollment as positive in terms of
Albertans reaching out for the future,
they consider it to be a problem, and
at best, something that will pass
away. The problem will not disappear.
Those people who will be refused
entrance into universities and colleges will appear in UIC lineups,
welfare statistics, and in the unidentified masses who fall victim to the
present government's inadequate
social and economic policies....Is not
one year of University more constructive in terms of human energy
and creativity than remaining on
welfare for one year?"
Possibly the most disturbing aspect of the cutbacks mentality, Kassian added, "is that they (cutbacks)
are the result of financial expediency
rather than the conscientious implementation of a democratically-
debated policy."
Both Hodgins and Kassian called
for a national education policy to
come out of the federal government
addressing such problems as education cutbacks, university accessibility
and high student debt loads.
Fewer than 10 percent of Canadians now have university degress,
compared with 20 per cent Americans.

Teacher-student ratio may increase
. The university must cut both the
percentage of its budget given to staff
wages and benefits and increase the
student-staff ratio at UBC, president
George Pedersen told the board of
governors Thursday.
Pedersen said while salaries and
benefits currently account fof 88.6
percent of UBC's operating budget,
they should be about 80 percent. "I
think it's clear that we will head to 80
percent as soon as we can get there,"
Pedersen said.
He said one way to reduce the size
of the salaries and benefits section of
the budget was to reduce the student
to staff ratio. UBC's present student,
to staff ratio is 13:1, said Pedersen,
adding a more desirable ratio is 23: l.
Vice president of finance Bruce
Gellatly, who presented UBC's
1983-84 financial statement to the
meeting, said although'the board increased tuition by 33 percent this year
Gellatly also said when the university's contracts with the Thunderbird Winter Sports Centre and
the aquatic centre end soon UBC
should renegotiate them so that the
two facilities would pay more of their
operating expenses.
Student   board   member   Dave
Frank said the centres already "rip
the public off and would increase
their fees sizeably if Gellatly's idea
was adhered to. "A large chunk of
the capital for these projects was
provided by students," said Frank,
adding that this is why the contracts
gave favourable terms to the centres.
Frank and student board member
Don Holitbutsky also said the university had decreased its funding to
scholarships and bursaries, although
Gellatly denied this and said it depended on how one read the figures.

Top profs may leave
if wages frozen
Voting on the proposed faculty salary freeze ended Tuesday with professors viewing the freeze as distasteful but inevitable in light of government cutbacks.
"If (the wage freeze) goes on for
another year it's going to hurt us,"
said associate forestry dean Tony
Kozak. "We might lose some of the
bright young professors to industry
or government."
Kozak said he blames the provincial government and not the administration for the proposed continued
wage freeze.
The faculty ballot on freezing
1984-85 UBC faculty wages and bonuses for the second year in a row
ended Tuesday.
Political science professor Phil
Resnick said the faculty association
executive did not negotiate hard
enough for non-salary concessions.
He said many universities offer non-
salary benefits such as free university
courses for relatives.
"The freeze, with the larger attack
by the provincial government, is

to stay at UBC," Resnick said, adding

Biochemistry department head
Dennis Vance said he voted in favour
of the proposal. "1 was not in favour
of raising people's salaries and firing
others," he said, adding two junior
members in his department are very
unhappy with the freeze.
Faculty association spokesperson
Andrew Brockett said the proposal
is worse than Simon Fraser University's recent agreement in which faculty accepted a 2.7 per cent cut but
retained an average three per cent
merit increment.
UBC formerly allotted three per
cent of its faculty salaries budget to
increments for outstanding and satisfactory work, and for the correction of out of line salaries, Brockett
said, adding that increments are
commonly accepted at universities.
Alma mater society president
Margaret Copping said it is too bad
the administration cannot offer increments to faculty. "I admire the
faculty's loyalty to the university and
it's disgusting that theiiniversity can't
offer its excellent faculty some recognition," Copping said.
Budget cuts cause
reduced library hours
Forget those pleasurable late nights of bibliographic titillation.
U BC's numerous libraries have cut back their hours this winter. For
instance, main library will only open until 10 o'clock on weekday
evenings, instead of until 11 o'clock.
UBC's acting librarian Tony Jeffries said library hour cuts were
applied across the board to UBCs 15 libraries.
He said a $400,000 cut to last year's library budget of $ 14 million
necessitated the cuts in 1984-85. But no library staff were laid off,
Jeffries said.
Cuts to particular libraries were based on studies which showed the
cut hours were the least used, Jeffries said.
Any future cuts to the libraries' budget will result in serious deterioration in library services Jeffries said, because the library has already
cut staff back to the bone. "We'd have to look at eliminating services,
one of the library branches, if we are cut anymore," Jeffries said.
He added due to thepast hiring freeze library staff had not been*

SFU residents will pay increased rates
New on-campus tenants at Simon Fraser University accomodations will pay up to 20 per cent more in increased
SFU's board of governors recently raised residence fees up to 95 per cent of market rates from the 80 per cent
students currently pay.
SFU student society president Stephen Howard said the increased rents will not allow people who need low-cost
housing to attend SFU.
"What the university seems to be saying is what the Socred government is saying, which is 'if you can't afford to go
to school, you can't go'," said Howard.
HoJfd said he rejects holding a student society-sponsored referendum to fund student housing. The university
should fund new residences from its capital budget and not impose rent increases on tenants, he said.
"Student council could hold a referendum but why should we? It seems to me that it should be the board who holds
the referendum. It is their project, it is their fee, it is their responsibility and it is their need. What the university is
trying to do is manipulate things behind the scenes to get the student society to sponsor a referendum," Howard said.
Current tenants will not face higher rents next year while new tenants face a minimum five per cent rent increase,
said student services director Bill Stewart.
Revenue from the higher rates will generate $300,000 to $350,000 in three years and will help fund a projected $4
million housing facility, Stewart said. .
"Right now only six per cent of students live on campus. We're denying ourselves the chance of attracting quality
students from the interior by having less housing," Stewart said.
Administration president William Sayweil said the university could find no other means to fund the "badly needed
housing facility" and that raising rents was the best solution among a series of poor options.
A three tiered financing plan in which part of the housing costs will be paid by the university, residents and a
student levy included in the student fees is favourable, said Sayweil but added that such a plan is highly unlikely.
"I don't think we can find the money in the university's budget and the provincial and federal government do not
finance such projects," said Sayweil. page 4

and the Downtown Eastside
Board does not respect students
Primarily, UBC's board of governors is Social Credit. Social
Credit appointees hold eight of
the board's 1 5 positions, a majority.
And because in B.C. politics,
unlike in federal politics, the ruling Social Creditgovernmentonly
appoints its friends to positions
of power, the board represents
quite a narrow section of society.
For not only are all appointees
Social Credit friends;they are also
almost all members of the big
business community, and the
Lower Majnland community.
Narrowness, almost by definition, is something the university
tries to avoid. Universities have
numerous faculties, encourage
students to study outside their
area of specialization and generally support studies the public
regards as irrelevant. And yet UBC
has a board drawn from a very
small qroup in society
This narrowgroup does not represent students   Yes, two stu
dents belong to the board, but
two people in a fifteen person
group is quite weak.
After watching the board gossip, laugh, giggle, read booksand
stare into space while Alma Mater
Society vice president Doug Low
made a presentation, one would
be inclined to think they are uninterested in students, excluding
students' annual tuition.
And to add insult to injury, after
laughing and talking during the
presentation, both board chair
David McLean and president
George Pedersen had the gall to
say the presentation was good,
before turning it down.
They were polite. Low was too
aggressive and disorganized, and
his topic, athletics, may not deserve extra funding in these hard
times. But he did deserve respect,
which was lacking.
It was also lacking when McLean
and vice president finance Bruce
Gellatly ignored the student board
representative's questions about
reductions   to   scholarsips   and
bursaries in UBC's budget.
But this should not be surprising. The board members belong
to a small, insular, powerful group
in society. They do not require
our respect.
Possibly they do not want it.
Priorities wrong
Housing is a right.
People, not just students, deserve it. Some people deserve it more
than others. Many people living on Vancouver's Downtown Eastside
need housing more than students.
While students can be happy that the UBC board, in conjunction
with the Expo committee, is building family housing at UBC, students
must also question the committee's choice of locations
The Downtown Eastside requires it more.
But students need it too.
But if housing is a right this should be ho problem. Both groups
must get it. The board's announcement is pleasant but inadequate.
Students cannot be happy thet they are getting adequate housing
while other needier people are doing without it.

He just had to become prime minister.
Back in 1946, when Vaseline was a

which he was permitted to ramble
about anything even vaguely related
to sports.

slaps" which were being presented to
the winning team. That evening in
the dressing room obviously made
an impression on young Turner who
In his first column, entitled "Anything for the Laughs", Chick decided
to discuss women's issues. After receiving a letter complaining cf the
poor coverage given to women's
sports. Turner explained The Ubyssey had no women sports writers and
"found to our dismay that no mere

reporting the games and activities of
the 'ferns' without sacrificing either
his pride or his sense of honour."

On January 21, 1948, Chick
Turner entered politics. John Napier
"Chick" Turner vied with Hassel
Schjelderup for the office of coordinator of activities of the student
council. Turner won, with 1673 votes
to Schjelderup's 1260.
"I wish to thank all the voters who
had confidence in me. I shall endeavor to fulfill my platform to the best
of my ability," proclaimed Turner.
A year later Turner announced the
election had been fixed. One of the
ballot boxes had been stuffed.
An article in the Feb. 2, 1949 Ubyssey tells the story:
"Chick Turner, co-ordinator of
.student activities, brought the case
of ballot-stuffing to light when he
demanded stricter control of voting
in today's elections.
"One student had taken over a
polling booth in the applied science
building towards the end of the day,
telling the polling clerk he had been
sent from the election's committee.
"Then he spent the rest of the day
crossing names off voting lists and
stuffing phoney ballots in the box.
"Turner did not specify who benefitted from the fraud."
Turner did specify though, a year
earlier, what his reasons had been
for entering politics. "During his activities on the Pub (The Ubyssey)
and the Totem (a UBC sports newsletter). Chick became "keenly interested in student affairs," says a 1948
Ubyssey, "and it was this interest
whichled him to run during the coming elections."
Patti Flather, a member of the
1984-85 Ubyssey collective, says if
Turner fails in his election bid he is
welcome to return to his old love.
"I'd be delighted to have John Turner
back as sports editor," says Flather,
"There are a lot of men around The
Ubyssey who would love to have their
bums patted..."-

Cantillon lobbys for peace and disarmament
Mainstreeting on Tenth Avenue during West Point Grey's busiest shopping
day, the New Democratic Party candidate for Vancouver Quadra pledged to
*give peace and disarmament top priority in this September's federal election.
Dressed in a shirt and tie despite .the hot sun, Cantillon and 15 volunteers
shook hands, passed out party literature, and told passersby the issue is of
prime importance in Canada.
"Worrying about the other major issues is not going to be relevant if we
become victims of a nuclear holocaust," Cantillon said. "My fear is we will
get locked into the nuclear weapons treadmill the U.S. and the Soviet Union
""are locked into,"
During a casual interview interrupted by the occasional handshake, Cantillon said the NDP is the only party opposing cruise missile testing and
supporting a nuclear free Canada. Cantillon added he supports withdrawal
but doubts such a move is necessary to stop the cruise.
"The NDP has traditionally supported a withdrawal from NATO since the

Cantillon said Norway, Denmark, Holland and Belgium have remained in
NATO despite opposition to NATO's nuclear weapons policy.
Cantillon said the Liberal government has failed to convert arms production
in Canada to peaceful production, adding that money spent on arms production should go towards education and health care.
"The arms race fires inflation and it also diverts funds and capital into the
wrong pool. It takes money away from peaceful industry and constructive
industry," said Cantillon.

both rode in cars in the parade, surrounded by supporters. NDP candidate Johanna den Hertog's supporters were spread evenly throughout
the parade.
People lined the streets to see the
parade and traffic was heavy. ■
"It was better than last year," said
Michael Cade, former president of
the UBC Gays and Lesbians Club.
Cade was oh the Little'Sisters float

last year.
People from all over Canada and
from a few U.S. cities joined the parade where fifteen floats competed
for five prizes. The atmosphere was
festive during the parade and the rally
which followed.
Benjamin's Cafe won the best
overall entry. Their entry consisted
of ten men and women dressed like
shriners in red and black waving gold
tinsel banners. Following them was
a red jeep covered in tinsel, with a
drag queen in the back singing to
music provided by three amplifiers
in the back of the jeep.
"Before the parade the Elbow
Room Cafe organized a breakfast.
"Jt was more successful this year,"
said organizer Patrice Savoie. "We

held the breakfast, which required a

"We do this for promotion for the

During the breakfast the Great

The presidential ad hoc committee's report on the graduate student
centre presented to UBC's president
Friday offers a workable solution to
the centre takeover, a committee
member said Friday.
Don Holubitsky, a student board
of governors representative, said the
report given to George Pedersen
offers an alternative to legal action,
which would cost both the administration and the Graduate Student
Society thousands of dollars.
Holubitsky said the report, which
. is still an internal document, was
reached by consensus and no significant disagreements exist between the
The.administration took control
of the cenfre and froze society funds
in late May.
On the issue of food services, Holubitsky said a "cooperative arrangement" is being recommended,
where UBC Food Services would
provide limited catering on a revenue
sharing basis. With shared revenue,
an "account could be established for
the physical upkeep of the centre,
Holubitsky said.
Holubitsky said an arrangement
has also been recommended for the
retirement of the centre debt, although he would not expand upon
this as contention still exists between
the GSS and the administration over
the actual sum of the debt.
Student services vice president Neil
Risebrough said the debt stands at
$78,000. But GSS coordinator Mike
Howlett said the GSS is not responsible for this amount because the
' GSS inherited a large debt when they
took over the centre from the administration in September 1982.
The debt's sum will depend on
whether the 1982 agreement between
the GSS and the administration
transferring centre control is recognized. Howlett said the GSS maintains the administration is bound to
the 1982 agreement but Risebrough
said the administration is not. The
ad hoc committee is recommending
the 1982 agreement be honoured.
Howlett added issues remain unsettled, such as who will receive UBC
Food Services profits' from this
summer and what the status of
former employees at the GSS is.
"Although some of the keys for
the building that were taken by the
administration have been returned
to us, the funds for the centre remain
frozen," Howlett said.
"Until everything is settled the situation is in limbo and this makes it
very difficult to plan for September."
Howlett said the GSS. wants to see
an agreement based on this report
reached by September or the GSS
will "wash their hands of the affair."
Both Howlett and Holubitsky said
they are pushing for the report to be.

U of W wages upped 28 percent
Repdnted from The Daily
The University of Washington
administration presented its 1985-87
operating budget request to the
Board of Regents Friday, with expectations to take the request to the
state  Legislature.  Judging by the
' amount of the request, the administration won't be setting a -tin cup
before Governor John Spellman —
they'll be setting out a wheelbarrow.
The total request asks for $570
million to run the UW for the next
biennium — a 37.8 percent increase
■ over 1983-85 spending levels. The
largest single item on the request is a
proposed 28 percent salary increase
for faculty over the two year period.
The increase is needed, according
to UW officials, to "catch up and
keep up" with salary levels at other
.institutions around the country with
which the U W is competing for highly-paid academic talent.
"It is not a wild request," UW
President William Gerberding said.
"If one wants to compete in the big
leagues in the universities, as the U W
has, we must compete in the market-
Gerberding and Provost George
Beckmann said the UW lags behind
its public peers in salary and fringe
benefits by 14 percent. The request
asks for a 14 percent jump to "catch
up" and a seven percent increase each
"of the two years to "keep up." The
UW's peer institutions are UCLA,
California-Berkeley, Arizona, Illi-
nois-Urbana, Iowa, Michigan, North
Carolina-Chapel Hill and Wisconsin-Madison, according to Beckmann.
* The Chronicle of Higher Education reported last week the average
professor's salary at the UW was
$40,800, whife the average at UCLA
is $43,500. Berkeley's average is
$45,200, and Michigan's average is
$45,100. The Chronicle also reported
average salaries at both Iowa and
Wisconsin-Madison were lower than
" the UW's — Iowa had an average
salary of $39,400, and Wisconsin's
average was $38,000.
This "keeping up with the Jonses"
would require $54.3 million, the request said. The request also asks for
$43.6 million added to the current
budget to maintain the current service level, and another $58.4 million
for program improvements.
"It's almost embarrassing to trot
out numbers this size," Gerberding
said adding that the UW was "like a
and brightest faculty members, students and administrators will no
longer come, or will no longer stay,"
Moore said.
"We are not crying wolf when we
say that we are rapidly approaching
status quo, precious little," Grimm
said. "They (the administration) are
right, but we can't get there from
Gerberding said there was no way
to estimate how much of the request
non-polluting industry bringing $200
million into the state. We do that an
an annual basis."
Members of the board were almost
unanimous in their praise of the request. "The whole budget is critical.
This is what we need," W. Hunter
Simpson, president of the Regents,
"The thing that is sad is that it's
been allowed to drop behind so far,"
regent Gordon Culp said. "In the
outside world, these numbers would
not be surprising to anyone."
Ronald Moore, chairman of the
Faculty Senate, also spoke highly of
the request, and warned of the
dangers of not getting the money
from the state. "There is a point
beyond which equipment is too outdated, buildings too deteriorated,
space too confined, support staff too
scarce, salaries too low, and so on.
When that point is reached, the hest
that point," Moore said.
Also responding favourably to the
request was Rep. Dan Grimm, D-
Puyallup, chairman of the state Ways
and Means Committee. Grimm
quoted a member of the Governor's
budget office and former educator,
who said, "If this were a paper sent
to me, it would be an A-plus."
However, Grimm said, the UW
will face stiff competition in the Legislature from other state agencies
asking for more money in a tight
state budget. Grimm estimated that
of the $9.9 billion state budget, "you
get to $9.65 billion before you talk
about one program improvement."
Grimm said, "I don't think there's
too much unreasonable in the request. I'm frankly willing to vote for
the revenue — that's tougher than
voting for the appropriations."
How much of the request will get
through the Legislature? "Given the
Spellman or the Legislature will
grant. "We don't know what the size
of the pie will be, or who will be
dividing it," he said.
The salary increases, if they are
approved by the Legislature, will not
be strictly across the board, Gerberding said, but will be determined
by many factors — such as the talent
needed and the amount of competition in the particular field. Gerberding said, "We look forward to those
decisions. They're relatively easy."
Gerberding said "a considerable
number of actors" were involved in
the formulation of the budget. He
mentioned the role of the Administration, the University Budget
Committee, the Faculty Senate
Budget Committee, a Student Budget
Committee begun by ASUW President Rob McKenna, and the Board
of Deans. "It is not merely the Administration's budget," Gerberding
Some of the items Beckmann
highlighted in his presentation to the
Regents were:
•$17.8 million for academic
computing, to bring computers into
classrooms, offices and curricula.
The item includes $3.1 million for
support equipment for gifts and
grants, including an $8 million gift
of equipment from IBM.
• $2.2 million to maintain and expand the department of Chemistry.
"If we're going to maintain our
chemistry, we're going to need an
infusion of dollars," Beckmann said.
• Allocations for travel expenses
for professors and administrators to
attend conferences and seminars
out-of-town. "We usually can't send
people past Spokane," Beckmann
• $169,000 for International Studies instruction, which Beckmann
called "the fastest-growing major in
the College of Arts & Sciences."
• $2.6 million for a student/faculty
special merit program, designed,
Beckmann said, to keep the state's
best undergraduates at the U. "Having the best undergraduates strengthens the whole undergraduate program." The program also includes
graduate fellowships and faculty
• $5.9 million for the updating of
the libraries system.
• $514,000 for restoration of Student Services. According to Ernest
Morris, vp-student affairs, "We don't
pretend that this takes us back to the
previous level of services."
In addition to the Operating
Budget, Beckmann presented the
Capital Budget request, which asks
for $107 million for the biennium.
The Capital Budget will be used,
Beckmann said, for much needed
restoration of campus buildings. The
request also details a major addition
to Suzzallo Library. "We need development of that facility," Beckmann said.
The Regents will vote on the
budget request next month before
sending it to the Governor and the
Legislature. The Regents are expected to pass the request as it stands.

Award-winner a syrupy soap opera
For years Australia has entranced
audiences with films full of humour
and humanity. But with the release
of Careful He Might Hear You,
Australia has finally produced one
of the country's most identifiable
Riding on the laurels of eight Australian Film Institute Awards, including Best Picture, Best Director
and Best Actress, 'Careful' is so disappointing that it borders on being a
breach of trust to those who have
come to expect a refreshing treatment
of cinema from the folks "down
Adapted from Australian writer
Sumner Locke Elliott's autobiographical work of the same name, director Carl Schultz has bastardized what
could have been compelling drama
into an Aussie soap opera.
Careful He Might Hear You
at the Varsity Theatre
directed by Carl Schultz
'Careful' follows the story of seven
year-old P.S. (Nicholas Gledhill) who
is caught as a pawn in a manipulative
battle for the boy's love and loyalty.
Dogan (John Hargreaves), P.S.'s
hard-drinking, perennially absent
father, has left the child in the dual
guardianship of the boy's aunt Lila
(Robyn Nevin) ;>nd aunt Vanessa
After his mother's death in childbirth, P.S. is raised in suburban bliss
by saintly aunt Lila until devilish,
frigid aunt Vanessa returns from
England to claim her half of the child.
Whisked off by Vanessa to a Gothic
harbourside mansion complete with
thunder, lightning, and imagined
ghosts, P.S. is indoctrinated into the
world of dinner etiquette, dancing
school, equestrian sport, piano lessons, guilt, hate and incest.
Having already saddled the film
with such a dreary made-for-t.v. plo-
tline, Schultz (who was a veteran t.v.
director for the American Broadcasting Corporation) burdens it
further with dead-serious melodrama. Where a comic touch or a more
subtle approach is needed, Schultz
slathers one cliched technique on top
of another.
In scenes where P.S. is ferried from
aunt to aunt during the fierce custody
battle, Schultz's soft-focused camera
lingers too long on the child's teary
doe eyes.
Combined with an irritating musical score dripping with oversweet
sentimentality, the film's overdone
drama is brought to ridiculous
heig i s. Schultz's detailed attention
to rh-;ap melodramatic ploys not only bores but insults the intelligence.
Scriptwriter Michael Jenkins ex
acerbates Schultz's failures by
smothering some fine performances
with shallow development of characters. Wendy Hughes as Vanessa
can barely make her character human
within Jenkins' narrowly defined
Nevin as Lila remains a long-suffering suburban housewife,  while
Gledhill (who is cuter that E.T. but
with less charisma) is merely a walking, talking  kewpie doll.  Indeed,
Schultz seems suspiciously aware of
Gledhill's marketable cuteness as he
churns out close-up after close-up of
the boy's tear-stained face.
'Careful' achieves a lush, expansive
feel with some very beautiful and
professional   cinematography,   but
AUNTS...Vanessa and Lila battle for custody of PS.
CH!!JL>„.no more than a kewpie doll
Schultz's exaggerated Gothic imagery reduces this accomplishment to
just another melodramatic ploy.
'Careful's' attempt to make a personal story larger-than-life fails mis- «
erably and results only in an unintentional parody of a Har quinn«^
romance. This film's attempts at
jerking tears from an audience only
extracts groans.
Insight on female sexuality offered
Mary Daly's new book. Pure Lust, .
is an intelligent analysis of male lust
and a study of the potential of female
The title Pure Lust refers to the
"pure" lust of men which Daly des
cribes as "the life-hating lechery that
rapes and kills the objects of its obsession/aggression". Daly pointedly
Pure Lust
by Mary Daly
Fitzhenry & Whiteside
exposes how groups composed
mainly of men repress women. The
list includes the church, especially
the Pope, modern "heroes" like Ma-
hatma Gandhi and T.H. Lawrence,
the media, the governments, schools
and others.
Besides naming and analysing the
oppressors of women, Pure Lust is a
01  LEFT ME-
FUL-   UNF!/~
clarion call to women to separate
themselves from the lechery of men -
and the denial of their own sexuality.
Daly advocates that women leap
above and beyond the limitations of
male lust by creating their own "Pure
Lust...unadulterated, simple, sheer
striving for abundance of be-ing".
Although DalycalU this "female*
separatism", it does not mean that
women should no longer deal with
"A woman known as a 'separatist'... may have friendly communication with some men without any
compromise of her integrity." c
But Daly warns that such contact
brings women back into the sphere
of repression.
It also brings women into contact
with tokenism. One of the best points
that Daly makes is that tokenism is
the counter-revolution, the second
witchcraze. Instead of men butcher- >
ing women, as in the last witchcraze,
men are now using women to destroy
each other.
"The perfect token is the perfect
traitor, betraying herself and wom-
enkind. She gives her assent to ra-
pism. The spectacle of her betrayal'
feeds the patriarchally embedded
hatred of women in women."
This tokenism, which allows a few
women into male-dominated professions such as politics, is used to •
promote the myth that the feminist
movement has achieved its goals and >
is no longer needed.
The book suffers from one small
fault: the reader must have read
Daly's preceding book, Gyn/ Ecology
in order to fully grasp Pure Lust. -
This is no hardship for the reader
however — Gyn/ Ecology is as erudite and witty as Pure Lust.
Pure Lust is a call to women to
leave behind token women and create
real friendships with other women
also seeking to go beyond the restrictions of men.
