Gorbachev's glasnost reaches BC
by Michael Booth
Glasnost will assume a physical form this Wednesday when the
Estonian national volleyball team
plays the UBC Thunderbirds at
War Memorial Gym.
After surviving against all
odds for almost 45 years within the
uncompromising structure of Soviet politics and sport, one of the
most unique teams in the Soviet
Union is about to make an appearance in North America.
During the Second World
War, the allied powers stood idly
by as the Soviet Union gobbled up
three small states on the edge of
the Baltic sea.
Following the war Latvia,
Lithuania, and Estonia went from
being relatively free and independent nations to having to suffer the indignity of being annexed
as Vepublics' ofthe Soviet empire.
One way that the Estonian
people have kept their nationalism distinctis through their sports
teams. Their pride is demonstrated in the accomplishments of
their national volleyball team and
its players.
The ascendancy of Mikhail
Gorbachev and the implementation of his policies of openness and
reform have been met at every
turn by increasing Estonian nationalism.
Huge rallies occur frequently
throughout the small country, its
national anthem ringing through
the streets as its flag flies proudly
from the rooftops.
It is in the midst of this open
and peaceful defiance of Soviet
controls that the Estonian national volleyball team embarked
on its historic journey to compete
against teams in North America
for the first time.
Estonia is one of several volleyball hotbeds in the Soviet Union and Estonian players are often
selected as members ofthe Soviet
national squads.
The current edition of the
Estonian team boasts some past
members of the Soviet team as
well as several rising stars in the
Musqueam chief
captures crowd
by Joe Altwasser
Hand-outs for natives are not
what is needed, fair land claim
settlements are, according to
Musqueam chief Wendy Grant.
At a speech in SUB on Monday, Grant scolded the federal and
provincial governments for the
poor treatment dished out to B.C.
natives.
"The government has got to
learn to understand how to deal
with us," she said, especially as the
problems of the Musqueam today
become the problems of other native bands tomorrow.
Musqueam land traditionally
extended over most of the Lower
Mainland and parts of the Gulf
Islands.
According to native tradition,
they have occupied their areas for
time immemorial. Recent archaeological digs—some conducted in Grant's backyard—have
found baskets over 5,000 years
old.
This began to change in the
1860's when many colonists arrived and usurped the land, claiming it for themselves.
The land has been disputed
ever since.
Although no treaty agreement was ever reached, the
Musqueam were given two acres of
land for every member on the reserve, which was less than the 18
acres per head most other bands
were given.
The Musqueam now have
over 800 members on their 416
acres.
Grant expressed caution concerning the state ofthe Musqueam
people on their overcrowded reserve.
"We are getting to the point of
a ghetto...the Musqueam are in a
crisis now. We have high unem
ployment, drugs and alcohol and
our kids are lost to the outside at a
very early age," said Grant.
Originally the Musqueam
were promised use of the university endowment lands but with
Bill C-16 the province succeeded
in transferring the UEL to the
Greater Vancouver Regional District, all done without advance
notification to the Musqueam,
said Grant.
Bill C-16 effectively negated
the Musqueam land claim because
once the land is taken out of the
jurisdiction of either the federal or
provincial governments and given
to a third party the natives have no
claim is weakened.
The Musqueam have won
some important battles but all of
these have been in the courts and
have cost them thousands of dollars, said Grant.
The most famous of these was
the Guerin decision in which the
Musqueam sued the federal government for their handling of the
negotiations on behalf of the natives, with a group of businessmen
representing the Shaughnessy
Golf Club.
"We sued the feds and won as
the courts said the federal government has a fiduciary obligation to
look after the natives as best they
can," she said.
But while the Musqueam won
the court decision with Ottawa
they are still stuck with a deal
with the golf club that pays them
only $27,900 per year over a 99
year period. The deal expires in
the year 2057 said band manager
Chris Robertson.
And if the Musqueam wish to
change the wording of the lease
another lengthy and expensive
court battle is necessary, said
Grant.
Soviet system who are bound to
make their mark on the international scene.
Two members of the team,
Vardo Tikas and Margus
Niinemagi, represented the Soviet
Union at the recent World Beach
Doubles Championships in Brazil.
The two most apparent
strengths of the Estonian squad
are its size and experience.
"They are a big team in the
traditional mold of Soviet volleyball teams," UBC head coach Dale
Ohman said. "They are big and
strong and are extremely good at
blocking and spiking the ball."
As if size were not enough to
intimidate the Thunderbird
squad, the wealth of international
experience that is present whenever Estonia takes to the court
ensures that UBC has its work cut
out for them.
The age on the T-Bird line-up
ranges from 18 to 22 years of age
while the Estonian ages stretch
from 23 to 30 years old. The least
experienced player on the squad
has represented Estonia 35 times.
The Estonians said they
wanted to play here because there
is a thriving Estonian community
in B.C. and there have been strong
links in the past to UBC volleyball.
Ray Lepp, the volleyball coach
at UBC during the 1960's and past
president of the B.C. Volleyball
Association, played for the Estonian team before the war and was
considered one of the world's best
volleyball players at that time.
A large Estonian presence is
expected at Wednesday's match.
For many Estonians, when
the national anthem is played and
the team comes into the gym behind the Estonian flag, it will be an
emotional experience that will signal hope for their beleaguered
homeland.

Japanese investors eye B.C. climate
by Steve Conrad
High powered Japanese investors were on campus today to
visit the Triumf reactor and to
attend a luncheon at Cecil Green
house with Stan Hagen, minister
for advanced education and UBC
President David Strangway.
The delegates represented
Keidanren, the Japan Federation
of Economic Organizations.
"This is the investment study
mission. That means we study the
investment circumstances and
make reports to the businesses in
Japan," explained Atsushi
Yamakoshi, staff economist with
Keidanren and a UBC graduate in
economics and political science,
"The results of this mission will be
carried to almost all the major
businesses in Japan."
Included in the delegation
were top executives from many of
Japan's leading corporations such
as Nissan, Mitsubishi and Mitsui.
A wide array of Japanese
businesses were represented, including banks, steel makers, real
estate developers and manufacturers of consumer goods.
"What we have here is the
Rolls Royce of Japanese industry,"
said Victor Lotto, Industry, Science an Technology Canada Regional Executive Director.
The tour of Triumf was part of
the provincial government's plan
to challenge the traditional Japanese perception of B.C. as a mere
supplier of raw materials.
In a speech at Cecil Green,
Strangway stressed the desire of
the province and the university to
develop high technology industries in closer co-operation with
the Japanese.
"I think everybody was very
impressed by the facility and the
speech by Dr. Strangway. It's very
difficult to convince them in a one
or two day visit, but I think that is
part ofthe challenge for them to be
informed about the reality here. I
think some of the became a little
bit more interested in this province. They never imagined that so
much high technology operated
here," said Yamakoshi.
In the past, Keidanren has
contributed funding to the construction of the Asian Centre on
campus, while Japanese corporations have assisted in other projects such as the Triumf facility
and the bell tower.
Speaking through an interpreter, Western Mission leader,
Masao Ikeda stressed B.C.'s good
fortune to possess so many natural
resources.
"The world problem in the
21st century will be a shortage of
natural resources and excess
population. When I look at Canada, the situation is just the reverse. It is quite natural that we
should wish to extend co-operation
for further growth of Canada," he
said. CLASSIFIEDS 228-3977

Inflammatory
disease may
be epidemic
by Joe Altwasser
Pelvic Inflammatory Disease
is a serious health problem, so serious that according to Jill Weiss,
a director with the Canadian PID
society, 25 per cent of women may
have had it by the year 2000.
The latest figures also indicate that after one bout, one quarter of women will not recover fully
and will later develop such serious
long-term health consequences as
infertility or recurring infection
said Weiss.
Weiss said prompt diagnosis
is essential but is difficult to get
because of the test's 30 per cent
error rate.
"There is also no correlation
between the severity ofthe symptoms and the extent of internal
damage. The woman with mild
symptoms can have serious internal problems and a woman with
severe pain may not have serious
difficulties," she said.
Also the difficulty in diagnosis is further complicated by the
number of other syndromes which
have identical symptoms such as
appendicitis and endometriosis.
"When a woman is told she
hasit, there is a 16 per cent chance
she has something and when she is
told she doesn't have it there is a
25-50 per cent chance she doesn't,"
said Weiss.
Health and Welfare Canada
has stated diagnosis using clinical
signs may be less than 70 per cent
accurate.
PID can be contracted in one
of two ways; after an abortion,
using an IUD, and after childbirth, anything that opens the
cervix, or through the bacteria
which is attached to the male
sperm and is transferred during
sex.
Control of the disease is almost impossible but using a condom can reduce the bacterial
transfer through sex which at
present accounts for 75 per cent of
the PID cases.
Weiss cautions women who
have had PID to be extra careful
because 20 per cent have a second
infection, usually caused by an infected partner.
"PID is the leading cause of
infertility among women and the
chances increase with each infection," said Weiss.
"It is also becoming an expensive disease costing Canadians
$140 million last year and nothing
is being spent in prevention," she
said.
Dr. Brumwell of UBC student
health said the national figures
are not being reflected here at
UBC.
"Thankfully we're not seeing
a lot of PID and surprisingly we
are even seeing a small decrease in
the amount of chlamydia which is
one ofthe causes of PID," he said.
Japanese businessmen obviously enthralled by lecture.

Canadian Federation of Students expands
By Chris Lawson
Canadian University Press
OTTAWA (CUP)—The Canadian
Federation of Students' new campaign poster looks a lot like something that once graced British
campuses.
The poster, which lists Prime
Minister Brian Mulroney's rhetoric on post-secondary education,
compared with his record in bold
yellow lettering, is forthright and
unabashedly political.
Inspired by a recent National
Union of Students (U.K.) cam
paign poster, it's one of a number
of benefits Canada's student federation can reap from getting more
involved with its counterparts
other countries, CFS' deputy chair
Mairi Johnson said.
"You can get a lot of information, on an organizational level,
and on a services level from other
organizations," she said.
"Sharing experiences is also a
good way to be proactive," Johnson
added. "A lot of the students I
talked to talked about the privileging and elitization of education in
their countries."

As an example, she said Britain
is using the Canadian model for
student loans, and the U.K.'s National Union of Students could
really use CFS' research.
"In Finland, the national students federation owns 80 per cent
of student housing," she said. "It
gives you a lot to think about."
She has travelled to the 13th
World Festival of Youth and Students in North Korea, visited the
International Union of Students
(IUS) headquarters in Prague, the
U.K. students federation, and attended an all-European student
federation meeting in Sweden.
"In the last few years the federation has more or less ignored
the international student scene,"
former CFS deputy chair Jamie
Tate said. Tate started CFS back
towards getting involved internationally.
And for a while, it was difficult
to get CFS' membership interested in happenings outside Canada, Johnson said. The federation's policy on international involvement remains unarticulated.
Going into the federation's
ninth annual general meeting, she
hopes to turn some of the last few
months' momentum into something permanent.
Johnson wants the federation
to establish an international affairs committee to establish international contacts, establish policy
on international involvement and
figure out how to pay for increased
international involvement.
The committee would also look
at several specific international
student issues campaigns, such as
the U.N.'s international literacy
year and the campaign to reopen
Palestinian universities.
Student fees explained
by Joanne Neilson
This year every student paid a
$69.50 AMS fee as part of tuition
requirements.
Few students know exactly
how their money is used.
"It is important for students
to know where their money is
going, and putting it in pie graphs
doesn't mean a whole lot," said
Ombudsperson Jessica Mathers,
referring to the fee explanation by
the AMS in thisyear's Inside UBC.
Student fees contribute approximately 10 per cent to the
total AMS budget, according to
Andrew Hicks, the AMS director
of administration.
The largest part of the student fee is the $30 portion allocated to the Recreation Facility,
known as the Student Recreation
Centre this fall.
The $15 Capital Projects Acquisitions Committee (CPAC) fee
was the result of a 1982 referen
dum, in which students voted to
introduce a fee to start specific
projects. At the same time they
voted for which projects they
wished to support, including
daycare and the Whistler lodge.
Until this year, the CPAC fees
have been used to pay for the debts
and maintenance of its projects.
Hicks said, by next year new projects, including playcare and student housing, may be ready for
start-up.
The Operating Expenses fee
enables student council to continue student services, business
organizations, and committees. It
also absorbs the costs of their
businesses which do not turn a
profit—the word processing
centres.
The smallest portion of the
AMS fee is the Refugee Fund. This
was the outcome of a 1985 referendum where students agreed to pay
for two refugees from an underde
veloped country to attend UBC.
The fee covers their tuition, food
and housing. It is a program
which Mathers calls "one of the
few admirable things council is
doing for students."
Both the Intramural Sports
Fund and the Intercollegiate Athletic Fee are directly handed over
to the university. As a result, students have no say in what happens to their sports fees, said
Hicks.
The amount of money the
AMS collects from the students,
not including the SRC fee, has not
risen appreciably over the past
years, said Hicks. He credits increased contributions from the
AMS's revenue generating services (such as the Gallery, Blue
Chip, The Pit, and commissions
from vending machines and the
games rooms) for the significant
growth of the AMS' overall
budget.

Ethnic groups
demand change
TORONTO (CUP) — York university law school's committment
to equal hiring practices should include blacks, students and faculty
said.
York and Osgoode Hall Law
School reached a settlement last
month with 124 women lawyers,
researchers and students who
complained of "systematic discrimination in the hiring, promotion, and terms and conditions of
employment for female professors
at Osgoode Hall Law School."
The Ontario Human Rights
Commission began investigating
the complaint two years ago after
then-associate law Mary Jane
Mossman was passed over for the
position of Dean.
The school has promised to hire
more women faculty and ensure
equal pay, add women's issues to
the curriculum, ensure an even
balance in the student population
and encourage women to assume
leadership roles.
But the Nelson Mandela Law
Society (NMLS) said the agreement ignores discrimination
against other groups.
"There are more important
equality issues at Osgoode - ra
cism and social class for example."
Professor Michael Mandel, the
only member of Osgoode's faculty
council to vote against the agreement, said.
The association pushed for all
references to "gender equality" to
read "equality,"
And while the university and
its faculty eventually agreed to
use the NMLS wording to reflect a
"broader context of equality," it
wasn't before the university held a
press conference announcing the
agreement.
The NMLS published a press
release outlining their concerns on
the same day, but it was generally
ignored by the media.
"I'm tired of white people saying what a great agreement this
is." Mark Warner, President ofthe
NMLS said. He's not satisfied with
the amended agreement, but adds
he can live with it.
"We want a public admission by
all parties that the agreement was
changed under duress," says
Warner. "It's all well and good to
have an inter-office memo, but if
they really believe in what the
ammendment says, they'll say it
publicly."
Housing crisis
strikes Kelowna
KELOWNA (CUP) — "No kids,
no pets and no single women" is a
resounding fact of life for Okanagan College students looking for
housing in Kelowna.
Students Natalie Schafer and
Tammy Klapstein didn't think
they would have any trouble finding a place to stay, after moving
from Quesnel B.C.
Little did they know Okanagan
College students are facing one of
the lowest vacancy rates in over a
decade.
Schafer and Klapstein tried the
classified ads, the student council
housing registry, and a commeri-
cal rental agency without success.
According to Schafer, prices are
out of reach or there are problems
with the landlords.
"The landlords we spoke to
wouldn't rent to anyone under 19,
even with our parents' signatures," she said.
With so much senior and adult-
oriented housing, some students
are commuting long distances,
others are living in motels.
Schafer and Klapstein are staying
temporarily with a family friend.
Okanagan College has plans to
build a residence that will accomodate about 300 of the college's
3,000 full and part-time students.
College president Bill Bowering said the rooms will rent for
between $210 and $275 per month
and be available on a first come,
first served basis.
The college is still waiting for
the provincial ministry of post
secondary education to approve
the project.
POLICE BRIEFS
UBC student to be charged for indecent act
On October 3 around 6:30p.m. a female resident was walking along
Pearkes Road in Fairview Campus housing when she thought she
heard a coin drop. She looked up to find a male standing in the front
of a window with an open shirt and naked from the waist down, exposing himself. The student will be appearing in court November 6.
Police investigating armed suspects
On October 7 around 5:00p.m., a female student was in a classroom
located on the second floor of the Henry Angus building when an
unidentified male entered the room and pulled out what looked to be
a handgun and demanded the student not to make any noise. The
victim fled safely from the area. The suspect is described as Caucasian, about 5'8", 140 lbs, approximately 30 years of age, fair complexion with very curly collar-length light brown/reddish hair with
somewhat bulging eyes.
Fight in front of War Memorial gymnasium
On October 14 around 12:00a.m., a UBC student observed a fight
between two oriental males, in the parking lot ofthe north side ofthe
War Memorial gymnasium. The student felt that one ofthe parties
was being assaulted, and attempted to intervene, when one of the
males pulled out what appeared to be a revolver-style handgun. The
suspect held the gun to the student's throat. The suspect then let go
and all parties fled from the scene. This suspect is described being
Caucasian, 6' and was wearing a long camel hair-style jacket with
yellow trim.

Jasmine journeys
down many paths
by Andrea Lupini
"Li
ifetimes ago, under the
I banyan tree in the
village of Haspanur, an astrologer cupped his ears — his
satellite dish to the stars — and
foretold my widowhood and
exile."
So begins Jasmine, the
latest novel by Indian born, self-
proclaimed American, Baharti
Mukherjee. What follows is an
age-old story voiced in strange
new cadences; across thousands
of miles, and even wider cultural
chasms, a young Hindu woman
struggles to escape her destiny.
A star-shaped scar on her
forehead directs her like the
mark of Cain.
BOOK
Jasmine
Baharti Mukherhjee
Our heroine is named and
renamed, as she transforms from
Hindu schoolgirl to Indian
widow, from New York nanny to
Iowa farmer's wife.
As Jyoti, the young girl born
soon after the Partition Riots,
our narrator witnesses the
growing militancy of Sikh
separatists in her tiny Punjabi
village. Later, she becomes
Jasmine to her progressive
husband Prikash, and his widow
when a terrorist bomb meant for
her explodes in a clothing store.
Her passage to the United
States ends in a brutal rape and
an even darker crime, but not
before she has given herself to
her fellow travellers many times
in exchange for a piece of bread
or cheese. Still, she survives.
Her final phase as Jane, 'wife'
of Bud Ripplemeyer in Elsa
County, Iowa, leads her no
farther from her violent destiny.
Around her, crops fail, bankers
foreclose, and farmers hang
themselves from the rafters of
their barns.
Yet Jane, Jase, Jasmine,
and Jyoti lend each other the
qualities necessary for survival
in a brave new world. Mukherjee, too, lends her novel a
sometimes pragmatic, sometimes poetic voice. The narrative shifts easily through time,
drawing connections between
the Punjab and Florida, the
open sea and the fields of Iowa.
Fatalism weights Mukher-
jee's work. The inevitability of
disaster, which at times robs
Jasmine of her capacity to hope,
also at times robs the novel of
its capacity to move. Still, her
sheer determination endears
her to us.
In describing the dispossessed, the alienated, the
refugees and illegals working
across America, Mukherjee
finds her subject.
Despite the racism she
exposes, the author remains
proudly patriotic toward the
U.S. In a recent interview she
said that Canada is less
accepting of its immigrants
than the U.S.
"We are the outcasts and
deportees, strange pilgrims
visiting outlandish shrines,
landing at the end of tarmacs,
ferried in old army trucks
where we are roughly handled
and taken to roped-off corners
of waiting rooms where surly,
barely wakened customs guards
await their bribe. We are
dressed in shreds of national
costumes, out of season, the
wilted plumage of intercontinental vagabondage. We ask
only one thing: to be allowed to
land; to pass through; to
continue."
Bharati Mukherjee will
appear on the panel of Windows
on Other Worlds at the Writers
Festival October 27, and will
read at the Frederic Wood
Theatre October 26 at 12:30.

Bloody well good
by John Hudson
Oscar Wilde once wrote, in
"The Soul of Man under
Socialism', "a map of the world
that does not contain Utopia is
not worth glancing at. For it
leaves out the one country at
which Humanity is always
landing"
THEATRE
Bloody Poetry
Frederic Wood Theatre
Until October 28
Howard Brenton's play
Bloody Poetry, receiving its
Canadian premier at the Frederic
Wood Theatre, concerns a small
group of men and women on a
voyage to Utopia. They are
travelling without a map, their
only notion of destination their
own conflicting imaginations.
Brenton, long the "bad boy" of
the British political drama, has
been called "the theatre's leftist
sex'n'violence merchant." A committed Marxist, over the past
twenty years his personal revulsion with modern Britain has
produced a series of some thirty
plays and has helped define the
present lexicon of political drama
in that country. His plays have
been bitter, funny, tragic, inspiring, and now, Utopian.
Like any
political voice,
Brenton has
finally accepted
challenge
_to hold his
, criticism
of
today and present his vision of tomorrow. In Bloody Poetry, Brenton approaches the future Utopia,
ironically, by examining a quest
from the past: that of the Romantic poets Percy Bysshe Shelley
and Lord Byron, and their
companions Mary Shelley, the
creator of Frankenstein, and her
step-sister Claire Clairemont,
Byron's one-time lover.
In moral exile from England
for their views and their practice
of free love, the four spend the
summer of 1816 together in villas
on Lake Geneva. With them is
Byron's doctor, official biographer
(scandal monger) and buffoon,
John Polidori.
The first act of the play concerns the well-recorded events of
that summer, including the
stormy, hallucinogenic night when
Mary Shelley conceived of her
famous monster. In the Frederic
Wood production, Michelle Porter
rather steals the first act as
Claire, though all the cast
members put in good performances, and Barry Levy limps very
well as the club-footed Byron.

Mary are often

stage, unfortunately because it is
their relationship that is most important to the play.
Brenton has said of his
historic characters: They were
Utopians trying to live a juster,
different life. They failed but I
loved their attempt." It is their
failure which is central to the
play. While celebrating their
vitality, their dreams and visions,
Brenton never lets himself be
lulled by glib optimism — in the
end, they failed because of who
they were.
This play emphasises that the
practical path to Utopia must
begin with the individual; personal accountability before social
revolution. It is Byron and
Shelley's own callousness and
cruelty which upset their dreams:
Bysshe, the great Romantic of
literature, unable to deal emotionally with the death of his daughter, turns bitterly against Mary;
Byron uses free love as an excuse
to ignore the feelings of his lovers,
men, women, boys and even his
own sister.
Mary's presence brings practicality. It is she who sees her own
ideals from a firm viewpoint in
reality. She struggles to hold her
family together, to find accommodation for the group, keep track of
their funds and create stability for
her children. Utopia is a fine
vision for tomorrow, but how shall
we feed the people today?
For all his historic content
and visionary themes, Brenton
has lost none of his political bite,
and Bloody Poetry presents
Shelley not merely as a literary
and moral renegade but as a
genuine political rebel. Brenton
quotes liberally from Shelley's
work, particularly the Mask of
Anarchy, a protest against the
Peterloo Massacre of 1882, when a
public meeting of 60,000 men and
women was attacked and dispersed by sabre-wielding militia.
Brenton makes it quite clear
that no Utopia is an easy social or
political step-around-the-corner.
In Bloody Poetry, though we revel
in the passions ofthe players, and
Brenton's writing is at its most
lyrical, we know that the end
brings only a watery death for
Shelley, and that British history
has yet to produce full compensation for the deaths ofthe Peterloo
martyrs.
On the whole Bloody Poetry is
one ofthe finer Frederic Wood
productions of the last few years.
The cast is bright, the direction by
Gerald Vanderwoude is intelligent, and Robert Gardiner's set
design is exquisite, though
occasionally the slow shifting of
heavy scenery breaks the pace of
the performance. This is an evening's theatre to be recommended.
If, as Wilde asserts, we are
always landing at Utopia, bear in
mind his next comment: that
having landed there we immediately set sail again for brighter
lands on the horizon. The voyage
of Shelley and his companions
provides a celebration ofthe
quest, and their personal failures
and practical problems would do
much to inform our own visions.
Claire: All of us, we will
become magnificent. The men and
the women of the future will
thank us. We are their great
experiment. We will find out how
to live and love, without fear.
Mary: If the money does not
run out.

UBC in action last weekend in preparation for Thunderball tournament
T-Birds host top teams
This weekend, War Memorial
Gym will be the scene of some of
the world's best volleyball, as
teams from Europe, the U.S. and
Canada take part in one of this
countries most competitive volleyball tournaments.
The UBC Thunderball tournament will feature teams from
Estonia of the Soviet Union, The
University of California at Santa
Barbara and Pepperdine University from California, as well as
defending Canadian Interuniversity Athletic Union champion
University of Calgary, University
of Manitoba, University of Win
nipeg, York University, and the
host UBC Thunderbirds.
"The Thunderball tourney
will be the strongest field of teams
in Canada this year at one tournament," UBC head coach Dale
Ohman said.
The reputation of the Thunderball tournament has grown
over the years to the point where it
is also one ofthe best competitions
on the West coast of North America.
"The top California university
teams are literally asking to be
included in the tournament,"
Ohman said.
"One goal I have in bringingin
international teams is not to pick
patsies but to play better teams so
that we enter the season playing a
high level of volleyball," Ohman
said.
"Traditionally the host team
plays well in volleyball tournaments and I believe we will be
competitive," Ohman said adding
that he is confident that the character of this year's T-Bird squad
will perform well against the
strong competition.
The tournament runs from
October 27 to 29 and all games will
be played at War Memorial Gym.
Grass hockey women place second
by Linda Diano
Victoria, BC
The UBC women's thunderbird field hockey team dared to
imagine a trip to the national
championships as they won three
of their four games over the weekend to tighten their grasp on second place overall and put themselves in line for a wild card berth
to the national finals.
UBC finished with 16 points,
well behind the University of Victoria's 22. The University of Calgary finished third with eight. The
CIAU national tournament will be
in Toronto in the first week of
November.
UBC entered the final tournament with a shaky grasp on second
place in the western standings.
But they started on Saturday
morning with a display which was
anything but shaky against the
University of Alberta. The T-Birds
flew down the field and scored all
four goals in the first half.
Penny Cooper with two,
Leslie   Richardson,   and   Robyn
McCreery, scored for the birds.
The 4-1 win set the tone for the rest
of the tournament.
UBC then beat Calgary 1-0,
with Richardson, a 1989 Canada
West All-Star, scoring the lone
goal.
The third match saw the T-
Birds defeat the University of
Manitoba 2-0 with goals from
Richardson and first year left
winger Heather Matthews.
The final match pitted the
"birds against the Vikettes who
had managed two wins and a tie in
their previous tournament
matches.
The game was fast-paced with
the Vikettes pressuring UBC's
defence and scoring an early goal.
UVic then went up 2-0 up before
half time as UBC struggled and
missed several excellent opportunities. In the second half UBC's
play seemed much calmer and the
defense held their own.
With five minutes remaining,
Richardson passed the ball
through to Penny Cooper who was
in full stride. Cooper connected
and sent the ball past the falling
National team goalie, Deb Witten.
UBC final drive fell short and
they were unable to score again
and the game ended 2-1 UVic.
Following UBC's surge in the
final western tournament Vanstone, Cooper and Richardson
were named Canada West All-
Stars. Graduating team captain
and fifth-year player, Vanstone,
has provided leadership and consistent play to guide the team.
Cooper, 1989 National Under 21
Team member displayed amazing
stick skills and game sense. She
was the third ranked goal scorer in
Canada West play. Richardson
was the second leading goal scorer
for all teams.
Head coach Gail Wilson, 1989
Canada West coach of the year,
has been instumental in the success of the Thirds over the past
year. The Thunderbirds will
probably qualify for wildcard spot
at the nationals this year which
will be the tenth appearance in the
12 years Wilson has been head
coach.

October 24,1989 Reader finds AMS
disagreeable
I take exception to Thrasso
Petras' remarks concerning the
function of the AMS during election (Letters, Oct 3/89). He states
that the role of the AMS is essentially " to ensure a fair and just
election giving equal representation to all candidates and issues."
Does this statement provide sufficient grounds for spending
$25,000 of student money to develop a "Yes" campaign for last
yearns Rec Fac referendum. Surely
the role of the AMS ought to be
somewhat comparable to the role
ofthe civil service bureaucracy of
any government: impartial and
neutral. Yet students are constantly bereaved of their desires
by the self-interested actions of a
few individuals - Blue Chip Cookies is a prime example, the name
says it all.
The problem with the AMS
"system" is the the majority of
students do not vote, which means
that the elction of a candidate or

Dr. Kurt... go
figure
I feel compelled to respond to
Kurt Preinsperg's article on commitment in female-male relationships. While I have no difficulty
understanding why a person
would not want to commit to a relationship, I have a great deal of
difficulty accepting the arguments
put forward by "Dr. Kurt". I believe that rejection of commitment
is based on the values of an individual. If the requirements of a
relationship are not congruent
with personal values, then choices
which reflect freedom will prevail.
My difficulty with "Dr. Kurt's"
statements about commitment
begin with his conceptualization
of commitment. He stated that
"Commitment means surrendering permanent monopoly rights
over a large part oneself (and especially over one's sexuality)." The

verb surrender implies a power
relationship in which the one relinquishing the rights is less powerful than the person requiring
that those rights be given up. Perhaps the problem does not lie with
the idea of commitment so much as
the idea of relinquishing power
and control over one's life.
If "Dr. Kurt" perceived commitment as a process whereby the
parameters of a relationship were
mutually defined, then perhaps
commitment would not be used as
the target of his concern. The objections to commitment would
then be rightfully placed on the
issue of control in relationships.
Instead of posturing himself on
the side of men against women,
"Dr. Kurt" could then address a
more universal concern which
plagues human relationships.
I suspect that the personal
dilemma implied by "Dr. Kurt's"
frequent discourses on relationships may be centered around
incongruent values related to issue of control. I wonder why?

THE UBYSSEY/9 Fat Cat U
The university never really changes its coat. In
Canada it has always been a privilege to attend, some
years more than others.
Now, at the tail end ofthe eighties, the excesses
of power and privilege are at their zenith.
Hopefully we have finished with the adulation
which business is constantly feted with. It is now to
the point where even college journalists are more
inclined to do a story on investment in Canada than
repression in El Salvador.
Business has co-opted our universities, almost
completely.
We now have the curious situation where our
minister of post-secondary education and advanced
job training, Mr. Stan Hagen, does not give a speech
to students but instead sends a taped message. But
give him the chance to shmooze in the safe environment of high-powered Japanese business leaders,
and he will gladly slide his belly up to the trough of
canapes.
The disdain you demonstrate towards your constituents cannot be overlooked. Your disregard is
hubris—the arrogance before the fall.
Our university, largely at the command of the
Socred government, is beingforced to find alternative
methods of financing for education.
But at what cost will this be?
Many of these alternative sources of funding will
come from big business—hardly what we would
consider an alternative.
The capital funding campaign is nothing more
than a corporate takeover of our university system.
The whole mess smacks of corporate technocracy.
Business will demand their profit from their investment.
The Hampton development is yet another example of the corporatization of the university. Not
only will universities sell themselves to business,
they too will become corporate citizens further legitimizing the image of Fat Cat U and a system which
relies on greed as the motivating factor.
The university's loss of autonomy signals its
inability to fulfill its social purpose—to act as a
conscience of society. Our ethics will be dictated by
the laissez-faire dog-eat-dog "reality" of business.
Many of us accept these terms because it means
security from unemployment and poverty. In doing
so, we deny our potentials when we accept this criterion of what is possible. University was supposed to
be the sanctuary where free thought could roam,
dealing with issues ofthe day.
Instead, students are virtually coerced to opt for
business. It is not hard to understand when the cost
of a single family home averages over $200,000 that
only those who live to make money will be able to
afford it.
Free thought is shut out by a corporate-oriented
reality, compromised by the endless demands of
consumption.
Life has been replaced by survival.

I am appalled at the

drips from the recent
RecFac referendum. So
much about it stinks: AMS
restrictions on the UBYSSEY media coverage - CENSORSHIP; undemocratic
and illegal voting practices -
FRAUD, TREACHERY and
DEFAULT; Quorum policy
(revival, adjustment or just
plain changing of the rules
halfway?) - MANIPULATION and down right
CHEATING!
According to Quorum
stipulations, 10% ofthe student vote achieved must be
"no" before RecFac is
dumped. Although 2612
"no" votes is not 10% of the
registered student population, 10% is still a non representative decision for the
student body as a whole, so
what kind of a cop out policy
is quorum?! The voiced vote

is all that can be measured
and represented. Accordingly then, in view ofthe last
referendum results, RecFac
should not be allowed to
happen.
Unfortunately however, the AMS refuses to
accept defeat fair-and-
square and is pulling out all
the stops. The AMS must
not be, but unfortunately
has become, an institution
wherein the self interests of
those in the administration
are most represented and
promoted. The AMS is supposed to be a representative
body of the student population as a whole, but can only
act as the loud speaker for
the voice of the students
who choose to stand up and
speak. It can not be allowed
to be a vocal chord for those
who refuse and thus forfeit
their right to exercise a vote
on campus. That's not representation, that's rule
based on assumption.
I'm disgusted with
RecFac. Fm disgusted with
the AMS. I seriously question the degree of responsibility the AMS has acquired.
I can no longer see any justifiable usefulness or positive
potential in the existing
mutated state ofthe student
administration for the good
ofthe student body. Just my
opinion of course. At least I
have enough self control to
speak for myself only.

I was
misinterpreted!
If possible I'd like to
expand on my previous letter and comment on Doritta
Pong's letter (Oct.6) because
there seems to have been
some misinterpretations of
what has been said.
If I understand her correctly Dorritta perceives me
as a defender of free speech.
That is true but free speech
and expression does not
mean blind acceptance and
tolerance by all others. One
must be willing and able to
justify his/her statements
and also take responsibility
for what has been said.
Dorritta also seems to
miss the fact that I was
speaking in a somewhat
sarcastic frame of thought
when I criticized Chris
Brayshaw's opinion. As for
the policies of a balanced
budget and a united country, ifyou have any suggestions, we in the club would
be happy to hear them.
Finally, hating to sound
intrusive, I wonder if you
might enlighten the student
population as to just what
you intend to do with big,
cheap, plastic elephants
from the United States? I
may have a "progressive
stance" but I do hope all
persons act in good taste.

I am taking this time to
write this letter, not because
I want to, but because it is
an assignment for my English 100 class. Even still,
there is a few words I would
like to say concerning the
use of foul language in The
Ubyssey.
To start, I would like to
make known that The Ubyssey is the only paper I am
familiar with that actually
condones the use of provocative language. Moreover,
the paper goes as far as to
allure prospective contributors into submitting by advertising that it is warranted to use errant words.
Is this paper so exigent for
readers and writers that
there has to be a form ofthe
"F" word on every second
page? As a former member
of the school paper back in
secondary school, I (nor the
sponsor) would not even
conceive of printing the
word DAMN in an issue.
What am I trying to say
with all this, you may now
ask? Well, I think you got
one hell of a paper here.

October 24,1989 ... divided by the
square root of
Mike Lee's shoe
size ...
Quorum was not reached by
the "No" side of the Rec-Fac referendum. Now what?
It doesn't make any sense at
all to fall back on to last year's
results. I believe that there should
be another referendum. But before there is, the quorum system
must be changed. It is nonsensical
to say that simply because one side
did not reach a total of 1650 votes
the referendum is invalid. What if
2649 students voted against something and I for it - would the results be invalid? AMS believes it
would be.
They should not be, however,
and I propose the following restructuring of the quorum system:
If one side of a referendum
does not reach a value equal to or
greater than 10% ofthe population
of UBC students (2650) then
whichever side is behind shall be
rewarded the number of votes that
the leading side fell short of quorum by. If the resulting values
reverse the outcome ofthe referendum then, and only then, will that
referendum be counted as invalid.
In other words:
If N is the leading side and Y
is the losing side then however
many votes N is short of quorum Y
is to be awarded. If Y is then
greater than N the referendum is
invalid. If Y is still less than N
then the referendum is valid and
N is awarded the victory. In the
case of last month's referendum,
the "No" side had 2612 votes, 38
votes short of quorum. The "Yes"
side had 1766. My formula would
have us award the "Yes" side 38
votes giving it a new total of 1804.
In this case the "Yes" value is still
far lower than the "No" and therefore the referendum is valid and
the "No" is awarded the victory.
In a case where the "No" side
was 2610 and the "Yes" side 2600,
"Yes" would be awarded the 40
votes that "No" was short of quorum by. The value of "Yes" would
then be 2640 which is then greater
the "No". Hence, that referendum
would be invalid. We could not
award "Yes" the victory but we
could not award it to "No" either.
In the case that one side does,
in fact, reach quorum this formula
need not be invoked to reach a
valid decision.

administration is
ignoring us
As I was walking past Mclnnis field, I couldn't help noticing
the administration's sign proclaiming the field as the future
sight of the SRC (RecFac). Actually, the first time I noticed it was
before the referendum was over.
On close inspection ofthe sign
is another problem: the facility
promised and the one voted on are
two different buildings! The one
promised includes racquetball
courts. The building we voted for
(or at least the one we voted for)
did not include these courts. Now,
I'm not about to complain if the
university is about to toss in the
odd freebee or two, but I somehow
doubt that this is going to be the
case (if they are, they might want
to think about playcare, parking
and so on).
I suspect that either a) the
administration is totally naive
about student affairs or b) they
were trying to influence the student's vote in order to make their
fundraising program more attractive to potential donators. Either
way, this shows a shocking lack of
sensitivity to the students. In fact,
this is the typical attitude of the
university. I wonder when the
university is going to realize that
students are the fundamental
backbone of a university and start
paying attention to what we think.

AMS Arts rep
Et tu, AUS?
When I was elected to the Arts Undergraduate
Society, I expected to promote Arts on campus with
a group of enthusiastic and co-operative students.
We would all get along, meet new friends and
organize Arts Bzzr gardens, lectures and social
events. During the first few council meetings it
became apparent that several people had already
met each other and in fact a distinct clique had
evolved in opposition to the president. As I later
learned, these people were disgruntled because
their candidate for the presidency had been beaten
by our elected AUS President
Johanna Wickie.
I  thought  that  these  silly
games   of   opposing   whatever
Perspective
volved or consulted about all matters. Well neither
have I been involved or consulted on all issues, but
I recognize the president's perogative to allocate responsibilities.
I am appalled that this group of individuals
could take a university student organization to such
a political stance which was so devastating to such
an enthusiastic girl. Johanna has put in so much
time for the AUS, her grades are probably suffering.
All the positions on the AUS council are voluntary, and quite honestly thankless positions. Yet a
few of us really want to make Arts a well publicized
and spirited faculty. How can honest intentions like
these succeed with a handful of troublemakers cre-
  ating such detrimental disturbances? Although there is a theoretical right to impeach the president, this action is uncalled for on
Johanna suggested, purposely trying to interfere
with "know-it-all" tactics, and being out-right rude
and disrespectful to Johanna and other members
would stop, but it didn't. In fact, I was shocked
when last week a phone call informed me that a
petition was being circulated to oust our President.
I became disgusted when I heard the plans that
nobody was to inform the President, that once the
required two-thirds of council signed, Johanna
would be out. As it turned out, the instigators of
this conspiracy could not obtain a sufficient quota,
but by this time everyone including the President
knew ofthe organized attack.
It is unthinkable to me that fellow students
could be so ruthless and uncaring to go behind
someone's back with such a petty attack. The
council has met since this incident and even those
who initiated the scam have acknowledged that
Johanna has shown real commitment to her position.   Their complaint was that they weren't in-
such trivial grounds. Having only had one month of
school to form a judgement, did they really give our
president a chance? Attempting to remove the
president by such a cynical interpretation of the
constitution disregards the vote ofthe Arts student
population.
I understand that one of the troublemakers
plans to run for the AMS presidency next year. It is
my sincere hope that the manipulative and unfriendly actions that she's shown the Arts council
will not be repeated at the AMS level.
The Arts Undergraduate Society is resolving its
difficulties and intends to promote the interests and
spirits of Arts students more effectively. Together
as a unified council we will be able to give Johanna
the necessary support to make this one hell of a year
for Arts.

Soccer Birds
thrash prairies
by Martin Chester
The UBC men's and
women's soccer teams ventured onto the prairies for a
series of games in Edmonton
and Saskatoon last weekend.
The men's team kept its
undefeated record intact with
a pair of shut-out victories
while the women split their
.Matches, losing to the Panda's
ofthe University of Alberta
and defeating the University
of Saskatchewan Huskies.
In Edmonton Friday, the
men came out quickly to score
two goals in the first half and
then held on to post a 2-0 victory against the defending
Canada West champion University of Alberta Golden
Bears.
UBC's goals, scored by
Itob Reed and Randy Celi-
brini, were both set up by long
balls from defender Alex
Percy.
T-Birds goalkeeper
Robert Zambrano was forced
to make two outstanding
saves to preserve his shutout.
Meanwhile, the UBC
women's side was shut-out by
the powerhouse University of
^lberta Pandas.
The undefeated Pandas,
who knocked the UBC women
out of the playoffs last year,
heeded a goal from Gabriella
Madelena in the middle ofthe
second half to defeat the
scrappy T-Birds 1-0.
Both teams travelled to
Saskatoon for Saturday afternoon games with their University of Saskatchewan
counterparts.
The women rebounded
from the previous day's setback to record a 3-0 shut-out.
Shauna Hare, Mitch Ring
and Terry Newell each put
goals past a beleaguered Saskatchewan goalkeeper to help
UBC post their third victory of
the season.
The men demonstrated
their desire to be the cream of
the Canada West conference
by thrashing Saskatchewan
6-0.
Midfielder Ron Village
led the UBC attack with a
hat-trick. Team Captain
Kevin Colbow scored a second
half goal in his first game of
the season. Colbow has been
out of the line-up with an injury since a pre-season tournament at Capilano College.
Neil Wilkinson, who plays for
Ottawa ofthe CSL, continued
to show his scoring prowess
by pumping in the T-Birds
fifth goal. The goal scoring
was closed out with Saskatchewan putting a shot in
their own net.
UBC went into the game
looking for goals, as it was
possible they could end the
season in a tie with the University of Victoria Vikings. In
the event of a tie first place
would be decided on a total
goal basis, so they needed as
many goals as possible
against a weak Saskatchewan team.
Dick Mosher, head coach
ofthe UBC team, said that it
could easily have been 10-0
for UBC.
"Their goalkeeper kept
them in the game," Mosher
said.
But the Vikings could
only manage a tie in the two
matches with the Golden
Bears and emerged with only
one point out of a possible
four.
A tie or a win next weekend in Victoria will all but
clinch top spot in the Western
Conference for the T-Birds.
And a win next week in
Victoria will "pretty well
guarantee (UBC) a spot at the
Na ti on als( champion ship
tournament)" to be held in
Vancouver in November
Mosher said.
"We should win this thing
outright," he said.
The women are looking
ahead to home games on November the third and fourth
against Calgary and Lethbridge and then, if they dp well
to the National Tournament
in Nova Scotia.

T-Birds drill Albertan Bears, again
by Michael Booth
With their backs to the wall
and their play-off hopes on the
line, the UBC Thunderbird football team put together its best
game of the year to defeat the
University of Alberta Golden
Bears 37-9 in Edmonton on Saturday.
The T-Bird victory was their
ninth straight over the Bears, a
string that extends back to the
1985 season.
"We played our best game of
the season," said UBC head coach
Prank Smith. "They are the best
defensive team we've faced all
year. The have the best defense in
the country."
Despite the outstanding reputation ofthe Alberta defense, they
were hard pressed to contain the
UBC attack as the T-Birds racked
up 37 points, the most Alberta has
surrendered all year.
It was an evenly played contest until midway through the
second quarter.
Alberta scored a touchdown to
go ahead 8-7 and, on the ensuing
kick-off UBC return man Jim Stewart pitched the ball to Craig
Keller on areverse. Keller went 98
yards for the touchdown and Alberta never recovered.
It was Keller's day as he figured in the T-Bird's scoring again
in the fourth quarter when he
hauled in a 47 yard Vince Daniel-
son toss. Keller was rewarded for
his efforts by being named the
Canada West player of the week.
Another big gun in the Thunderbird offensive arsenal was the
rushing performance of Stewart.
He carried the ball 24 times for 91
yards and two touchdowns. Stewart's efforts pushed him over the
1,000 yard mark on the season.
Stewart has compiled 1,058
yards in eight games.
Stewart is only the fifth runner in Thunderbird history to
crack the elusive 1,000 yard barrier, and the first to do so since
Glen Steele in 1982.
The win boosts the 'Birds record to 4-3 and into a three-way tie
for second behind 6-1 Saskatchewan in Canada West standings.
UBC's playoff hopes are in
their own hands as they must beat
the University of Calgary Dinosaurs at Thunderbird Stadium
this Saturday to secure the second
and last playoff spot.
"It's gonna be tough," Smith
said. "They have a great offense
and a great quarterback (Bob
Torrence)." Kick-offis at 1:00 p.m.
on Saturday.
Puck-Birds put on ice in Regina
EVERYONE WELCOME
by Michael Booth
The University of Regina
hockey team were less than hospitable hosts to visiting UBC, defeating the Thunderbirds by identical 4-0 scores in two games
played over the weekend.
"The drought of the prairies
hit the UBC boys," said T-Bird
head coach Terry O'Malley.
On Friday night, the 'Birds
got off to a sluggish start before
settling down to play a solid game.
The defense broke down for a five
minute span in the second period
and Regina used the opportunity
to grab the lead.
Although the T-Birds were
able to generate several fine scoring opportunities, Cougar goaltender Ray Houk met the challenge
and was rewarded with his first
shutout of the year.
On Saturday night Regina
used their other goaltender, Trevor Lloyd, and he made the most of
his chance to reduce his goals
against average by matching
Houk's shutout performance ofthe
night before.
The 'Birds played better in
Saturday's contest but were continually frustrated when it came
to converting their scoring
chances.
O'Malley thought that when
the "Birds were thwarted on three
scoring opportunities in the second period, "our defensive game
broke down and we began pressing
too hard."
The Cougars took advantage
ofthe 'Birds'mental lapses to score
the go-ahead goal and relied on
their defense and Lloyd the rest of
the way.
"We have a good team" O'Malley said, adding that the 'Birds
must score more when the opportunities present themselves.
The 'Birds were not badly
outplayed in Regina according to
O'Malley and he singled out the
performance of centre Rich
Ducevic for his playmaking prowess in the two games.
The two losses dumped the
Thunderbirds record to 1-3 while
Regina climbs to 3-1 in the tough
Canada West conference.
Next action for the puck-Birds
comes this weekend when the
perennial Canada West powerhouse University of Alberta
Golden Bears visit Thunderbird
arena for a pair of games.
Face-offis at 7:30 for both Friday
and Saturday games.
