Les sectes et nous]
By VIC MacBOURNIE

"When you meet the friendliest people you
have ever known, who introduce you to the
most loving group of people you 've ever encountered, and you find the leader to be the
most inspired, caring, compassionate and
understanding person you 've ever met, and
then you learn that the cause of the group is
something you never dared hope could be accomplished, and all of this sounds too good
to be true — /"/ probably is too good to be
true — /'/ probably is too good to be true!
Don't give up your education, your hopes
and ambitions to follow a rainbow. "
Jeannie Mills,
Survivor-Jonestown, Guyana
More than three million young people, the
majority university and college students,
have fallen victim to one of North America's
most extensive social phenomena — the cult
movement.
Chris Denkowitz is one woman who has returned from a cult. Her experience began
when she was approached by a woman on a
busy Toronto street. The woman was friendly and outgoing, and Chris, intrigued by their
conversation, agreed to meet with her again.
The following day the woman asked Chris
out to a coffee house where Chris got her
first exposure to the fact that her new acquaintances were involved in some kind of
religious organization.
"The coffee house consisted of a couple of
songs and some skits, something you might
find in high school or any other church function, said Demkowitz.
Although Demkowitz felt the new group of
people she was with were strange she could
not quite place them, and because they were
so friendly she had no reason to doubt them.
"They were so nice and at the worst they
were harmless, no matter what I thought of
them, I did not think they were harmful at
all. The girl continued to call me every day.
We played sports together, we went to the
beach and went dancing," she said.
Demkowitz says she began to trust the
group and became increasingly involved with
them. "They were so nice, they seemed to
have a direction in life and they had a lot of
answers to a lot of questions," said Chris.
She was introduced to the cult after her
friends convinced her to attend a half hour
lecture called PFAL (Power For Abundant
Living.) Christine sat through the half hour
seminar that turned out to be an entire evening of songs and testimonies about how this
class had changed people's lives.
"You know the old, I-was-an-alcoholic-
and-now-that-I-have-taken-the-PFAL-class-
I-am-a-wonderful-and-upstanding-citizen-in-
the-community," said Demkowitz.
The half hour lecture was actually only the
first half hour of a 36 hour real course. "This
36 hour course is The Way's main indoctrination and by the end it teaches you how to
speak in tongues. "The way that The Way International teaches it, (speaking in tongues)

is definitely a mind control technique used to
put yourelf in a trance like state and become
very susceptible to the suggestions of the
group," said Demkowitz.
"The Way International claims speaking in
tongues does many things. They claim it
removes doubt, worry and fear, which it
does, but it removes everything else along
with it," says Demkowitz.
Demkowitz says speaking tongues works
like a jamming device in the cultists' minds so
that if they have a problem or if they question something all they have to do is speak in
tongues for a while and it stops their analysis
process. "When you open your eyes you
forget what the problem even was," said
Demkowitz.
This is just the beginning of the cult's mind
control techniques. While speaking in
tongues blocks the member's ability to
analyse or question problems, a low protein
diet and sleep deprivation slows down the
brain's ability to rationalize. Love bombing
by other members of the group and peer
pressure combine to force the new recruit into submit to the group.
Demkowitz says mind control is the
greatest evil in the cults.
"The PFAL is the main indoctrination of
The Way, the mind control is the issue. It is
not a religious question in my mind, because
if you want to believe that this rock is going
to give you salvation, then that is fine as long
as you decide by your own free will to worship that rock," said Demkowitz.
After Demkowitz took the class in Toronto
she went to the Rock of Ages, but before going to the festival she remembers that in three
weeks she had stopped living with her sister,
had moved into a house of "believers" where
she was sleeping on the floor alongside the
believers, had stopped looking for a job and
had given up her life to serve God with the
Way International. "So in fact, my whole existence was based around the Way International," said Demkowitz
On her one year recruiting program she
was sent to Ottawa. "Cults are very interested in separating your connection with
reality and one way to do that is to do it by
separating you from your family and friends.
All they have to do is claim that God told
them that I should be in Ottawa, so I went."
Demkowitz's sister could not believe it
when she was told thai: Chris was going
to Ottawa but Demkowitz thought that it was
satan acting through her sister that caused
her to question leaving.
In Ottawa, Chris took another drastic step
towards the trap that had been set by the cult.
She had committed herself to a four year Bible Study College which is run by The Way
and trains the elite corps of Way members for
leadership roles in the cult. "These people
are ready to lay down their lives for The Way
International," says Demkowitz.
In preparation for the college Demkowitz
collected items which were spelled out for her
on a two page list. "They tell you to put
names on all your clothes. Men bring boxer
shorts, women bring briefs, I mean they even
tell you what kind of underwear to bring with
you," she says. This was just another way to
stop the member's thinking process, she
adds.
The importance of extreme thought control by the cult is made evident in Cincinnati
magazine's example:
"Don't think" cultists are warned, "Satan
uses your thoughts to trick you." When
corps members at The Way College of Emporia were ordered outside for a late night
training session several years ago, most appeared in sweat suits and tennis shoes,
prepared to run. "You're thinking again,"
their leader thundered. "Did I tell you you
were going to run?" Later the group was led
to a muddy field on campus and drilled in
calisthenics. "Hit your stomachs!" the leader
shouted . . . "Stand up and run in place
. . . Hit your backs."
One cultist recalls lying on her back in the
deep mud, thinking she might someday be
called on to fight communists under similar
conditions. A moment later, she noticed a
thumping noise behind her, like the sound of
muffled drum beats. Turning her head she
discovered the source of the sound: an entire
section had followed the order literally. More
than a hundred were standing rod-straight,
pounding their backs with their fists. "It
turned my stomach," she said.
"One of the interesting things that is included on the list for the college is a gun. I
was looking for a gun to bring to this college.
Now a rational person might ask, why would
a Biblical Research and Teaching Ministry
want you to have a gun?"
The Way International claims the gun is
used for a hunter training course but, it is interesting that Demkowitz told The Silhouettt
that the members are trained in the three
marksman positions.
While Demkowitz was in Ottawa her
mother contacted her to convince her to
return home. Demkowitz explained to her
mother that she had a commitment to God
and a certain spiritual field which she could
not leave.
Her mother came for lunch one day and
although Demkowitz did not know it, her
mother had come to kidnap her so that she
could be deprogrammed.
Demkowitz said that when her mother
came she had a ten dollar bill in her hand and
asked her if she would mind leaving now
because she had a taxi waiting downstairs.
When Demkowitz entered the cab she did
not realize that the cab had foreign plates,
did not have a meter inside and did not have
a cab stand on top. She admitted that her in-

THE
MOONiES
JANICE WAS YOUNG
AND LONELY, UNTIL
SHE MET THE MOONIES.
THEN SHE DISAPPEARED.
By DAVE WATSON
For Canadian University Press
Indoctrination plays a role in everyone's
life. It forms the beliefs we live by and
defines our attitudes to the world about us.
Many types of educational and religious indoctrinations are taken for granted, but
amidst North American religious cults, indoctrination has become a highly developed
procedure with powerful and far reaching effects.
Janice Rahn, a young Canadian woman in
her early twenties, was recruited into the
Unification Church while working in Boston,
Massachusetts during the summer of 1980.
Within two weeks she gave up her job and
joined the Moonies.
Recruited and indoctrinated through a
weekend workshop and a week long series of
lectures, Rahn spent four weeks in different
Moonie camps until she was sent to Atlanta
as a fund raiser.
Shortly afterwards, Rahn's parents kidnapped her from Atlanta spending $13,000 to
have their daughter deprogrammed before
returning to Canada with her.
Rahn spent the last year recovering from
her experience. Sensitive to any type of coercion or pressure, she has had difficulty
holding onto jobs and eventually ended up
working for herself making stained glass windows. In September of this year she entered a
teachers college.
Recruitment and indoctrination in cults
and especially within the Unification Church
follows consistent patterns. Moonie recruitment is aimed at those in their late teens and
early twenties, in many cases, those in college
and university.
Campuses are common places for cult
recruitment. Students tend to be open to new
experiences and easily drawn into these types
of religious activities.
Cult recruiters look for people who appear
isolated or alone. Often, those recruited are
in the middle of changes in their lives and
usually, though not always, are unhappy or
dissatisfied with their situations.
Rahn's recruitment follows this pattern.
She moved from her home in Southern Ontario to take a job near Boston as a nanny,
caring for two young children in a house near
the ocean.
It was an isolated existence and even
though she enjoyed working with the
children, she was unhappy with her
employers.
One morning, while visiting Boston on her
day off, she was approached by a young
man, who introduced himself as Mark, and
another woman. They were friendly and
outgoing and started a conversation.
Moonie recruiters often work in pairs, one
male and one female, since they appear less
threatening to new recruits. It is a common
cult practice for such groups to misrepresent
themselves at first, claiming to be any
number of organizations.
Moonies oftens say they're members of
The College Association for the Research of
Principles (CARP).
"They were very friendly and said their
group was concerned about things that were
happening with students. They wanted to examine the disintegration of education, morals
and values," says Rahn.
Moonies also establish contact through
door to door canvassing, claiming to do
surveys on world problems, attitudes to local
issues and any other subject they believe will
capture people's interest.
Once initial contact is made, the group
usually invites the recruit to some type of
organized activity. Rahn was invited to lunch
at a large house in the city. There, she found
a group of happy, outgoing people who were
always smiling and talking with her.
Mark, the young man she first met was
always nearby, talking and finding out more
about her.
Asking the purpose of the group, Rahn
received several general replies until Mark
eventually admitted they were a Christian
organization but made no specific mention of
the Unitarian Church.
She spent the day playing sports, singing
and socializing and was invited to spend the
following weekend at one of the group's lecture workshops.
Cults attract new members by emphasizing
the social aspects of their group. Cult
members are effusive and lavish a great deal
of affection on new recruits.
"They work on your curiosity, tiy to feel
you out. They don't want to hit you with
anything that might shock you," says Rahn.
The cult in Canada
The Unification Church in Canada is small
compared to its organization in the United
States but its limited numbers have not
prevented them from gaining a foothold in
Canada.
Moonie activities in Canada are mainly
centered in Toronto where the Unification
Church has acquired a number of properties
and commercial operations.
According to the Toronto based Council
on Mind Abuse, the Moonies own two
houses in the Toronto area. Houses are
usually bought through entrepreneurs, who
front for the Unification Church and later
sell them directly to the Church and take
their profit.
The church allegedly owns a cosmetic store
in the Yorkville area called Hanida Ginseng
Cosmetics and a company which distributes
Oriental teas called the Ginseng Tea Company.
The Church also owns a 95-acre estate on
Rice  Lake in  Peterborough,  formerly the
residence of Governor General Vanier. It is
reputedly being used as a training centre for
Moonies from the Toronto area.
The Church also recruits in Toronto, often
near the Eaton Centre, sometimes claiming
to represent the College Association for the
Research of Principles (CARP).
The Canadian Unity Freedom Foundation
is also associated with the Moonies. The
group usually presents films on various campuses and this group appeared on the
McMaster campus last year.
The Canadian Unity Freedom Foundation
also publishes a small tabloid newspaper called Our Canada and distributes it free in
Toronto.
COMA maintains that the Moonies have
approximately 100 members in Canada but
they generate about $3 million a year in
revenue.
In Western Canada, Moonie centres in
Calgary and Edmonton are run through the
Unification Church in the United States.
Rev. Sun Myung Moon
Once an individual has agreed to attend the
Moonies workshop, their chances of being
recruited increase dramatically.
Weekend workshops are heavily orchestrated affairs in which the individual is
given no time alone, constantly pressed to
take part in group activities and watched
closely by church members to see they remain
involved.
Individuals are discouraged from making
outside phone calls or talking to other new
members in an attempt to maintain the
group's 'positive' atmosphere. New members
are constantly showered with attention and
affection.
During the weekend, church members give
'spontaneous' testimonials of the changes
they underwent after joining the group,
usually reporting their earlier lives to be extremely unhappy and dissatisfying.
Rahn attended the group's workshop in
New Hampshire and found the weekend a
long series of fast-paced activities, interspersed with lectures on general historical principles and drawing parallels between the time
of Christ and today.
Slowly, the religious nature of the camp
began developing, but there was no open
reference to the Unification Church or is
Founder, Reverend Moon.
Rahn was given no time alone to reflect on
the events of the weekend. During her time
there, Mark worked hard to improve their
relationship, "He was always praying and
holding my hand, always putting subtle
thoughts in my head."
In many cases, Moonie indoctrination seeks
out inner conflicts in the individual and by
focusing on them pressures recruits to join
the group. The cult plays on suppressed inner
conflicts which the individual must either
overcome by himself or control by identifying with the cult.
John Freed, in his book Moon Webs says,
"For some, the vulnerable spot is a lack of
fulfillment in their work or personal lives; for
others, the guilt of being modern 'consumers' who have compromised their past
ideals. Their own unused potential is used as
a weapon to push them into extreme introspection . . . and further."
"As Dr. Clark concludes in his paper
Manipulation of Madness: 'They (cults) are
embarking upon a draconian experiment —
one which no ethical scientist would consider
taking — a healthy person with a basic
neurosis was having it transformed into an
acute obsession. Psychosis was being imposed."
"Then, poised at the abyss of nervous collapse, the recruit is offered only one avenue
of escape, which he takes in sheer desperation: he fastens onto the group to escape his
pain."
As the weekend progressed, Rahn was
pressured to remain for a week-long series of
lectures to be given after the workshop. She
later found out the lecture series is run constantly to take advantage of those attracted
to the weekend workshop.
Rahn was aware of the increasing pressure
placed on her to stay for the week's lectures.
She decided to return to her job in Boston,
but during that week Mark continued to
phone and visit her. Eventually, while out
with Mark, she called her employer.
"I just phoned up and told him I'm not
coming back. They owed me a couple of
weeks salary and I gave that up."
"I felt guilt and thought I had better make
the best of this experience with the Unification Church."
Rahn also phoned her parents in Ontario.
"Mark was there as well. They said it was up
to me what I did but just to keep them informed."
After leaving her job Rahn travelled to the
group's camp in New York State and
became more involved in the group's activities.
"When they have you there for a week,
they begin talking about the Unification
Church. Up till then I thought they were a
Christian group."
"They begin to fill you with their own
values. I was totally off balance. I didn't
trust my own judgement.
"They never answer questions, just saying
you'll understand in time. When someone
does raise a doubt they're told they're affected by past concepts and they should stop
thinking for themselves.
"At first, there was no mention of
Reverend Moon but during the lectures
Reverend Moon's picture hung on the wall.
It's not till the final lecture that Moon is
presented as the Messiah," she says.
The continual repetition cult members face
serves two purposes, to reinforce what
they're being taught and to occupy their
time.
During the lectures, church concepts
became more prevalent. New recruits are encouraged to forget their old lifestyles and
sever their contact with jobs, careers, friends
and family.
By this time, recruits have become attached to the movement mainly through
socialization with church members. During
the week-long series of lectures, the recruit is
always kept busy with no time to themselves.
The recruit through indentification and constant pressure is forced to accept group doctrines.
"The Moonies told us what our friends
and family would say and tried to discourage
us from talking to old friends," says Rahn.
After a week in New York, Rahn with
Mark and some other members, began moving to different camps.

the way he constantly looks over his
shoulder, almost as if he were
paranoid.
And there's the way he and his
henchman scout out all corners of
every room they enter. And check
behind the curtains.
And then there's the peculiar way
McQuirter and his group seek out a
washroom (Asks a henchman,
"Where's the nearest washroom?"
He listens politely, then asks for the
location of other washrooms in
SUB. He nods, and examines the
entrance to the nearest washroom.
He then promptly heads to a
mystery location.)
But what really makes McQuirter
stand out is his eyes. They are, as
one UBC student said, like black
pits. They gleam in a most unholy
fashion, and certainly have the
ability to send chills down the spine.
Aside from these traits, McQuirter seems like the all-Canadian
kid, soft spoken but a natural
leader. A guy with a lot of
charisma.
He's the leader of the Canadian
Knights of the Ku Klux Klan.
And he actually claims that the
Ku Klux Klan is a legitimate
organization of concerned citizens
seeking justice. That it's a group
that has been subjected to media
lies and public abuse since its inception. That the KKK is not a terrorist
organization and that it is supported by black nationalists.
He sits at a table calmly explaining the difference between Caucasians and other races. Two nervous
Ubyssey reporters ask questions. A
photographer moves around the
table, snapping photos. Each click
seems like an explosion. The two
henchmen move out of the camera's
range. More questions.
Why is the KKK at UBC?
"We have a few of our members
on campus and they suggested we
contact the paper to have the opportunity to speak with you first
hand about why there are members
(of the Klan) at UBC.
"In the 1960s you maybe
wouldn't have had quite as many
Klan members on campuses, but it's
changing. Now students are beginning to think for themselves. People
are saying 'let's ignore the problems
we're not responsible for and let's
begin to worry about ourselves'."
McQuirter goes on to say there is
an "informal club" of the KKK at
McQUIRTER . . . Klan leader
UBC. He won't give specific
membership figures, but there are
more than 20.
"It's not an officially designated
den. The things they do are varied.
There's still a lot of left wing influence among profs on campus, so
they keep quiet until they graduate
from UBC. We encourage them to
join groups that are against the
Klan or are left wing oriented to
find out why they're against us,
what their attitudes are. We store
this information in our files and we
can use it later if they run for public
office or something. At the same
time if they hear of somebody
who is sympathetic, they bring out
the idea of joining the Klan."
He goes on to describe the Klan
as a "cultural" group with a lot of
benefits for its members. "They can
attend various cultural events such
as cross lightings."
He outlines the Klan's ideas and
policies. He dismisses criticism of
the Klan as media distortion. He
doesn't acknowledge facts about
Klan atrocities and fills the gaps
with Klan mythology.
For instance, when the Klan first
formed in the Southern United
States, it did not bully and torture
blacks. In fact, the KKK actually
defended the white community
from roving gangs of blacks.
He continues to glorify the Klan.
He enthusiastically describes his
version of the Klan's history. He
defends last Spring's Klan involvement with the invasion of
Dominica, where a small group of
Americans and Canadians were
found out after plotting to overthrow the Island's black government.
"It was well organized and nearly
successful. But I was involved as an
individual, not as a Klansman.
There was a lot of money involved.
I wish I could say it was a Klan
operation but it wasn't."
When the mercenaries were arrested, several Klansmen were
found on a boat prepared to leave
for Dominica. Rifles and machine
guns were seized. And a Nazi flag.
McQuirter does not deny Klan affiliation with Nazi principles. He
says the German Nazis introduced
many progressive social programs
that the Klan supports. Especially
the concept of promoting the Aryan
race.
"Let the blacks develop their
own culture in Africa," he says.
Finally the reporters run out of
questions. And McQuirter, still
looking over his shoulder, leaves
UBC.
Late news item: Alex McQuirter
was arrested by Toronto police
Wednesday for possession of
firearms and cocaine. McQuirter
said during his interview with The
Ubyssey that all Ku Klux Klan
members take oaths to obey the law
fully. Klan members claim the arrest was a setup to discredit the
racist group.

SAC
constitutes
CPC(M-L)
SOROKA ... 'we will fight back'
By MURIEL DRAAISMA
The committee to fight racist and fascist
violence was recently constituted as a
legitimate UBC club. The addition of a new
club to the Alma Mater Society may not seem
extremely important, but the nature of the
club is disturbing.
The committee's leading members are affiliated with the People's Front to Fight
Racist and Fascist Violence, a front for the
Communist Party of Canada (Marxist-
Leninists). The student administrative commission was not aware that the committee is
linked to the People's Front when the constitution was passed.
"We didn't know they are a cover for the
CPC-(ML). They told us they were not involved in the violence with the B.C.
Organization to Fight Racism," said club
commissioner Terry Cox.
Cox said the committee qualified according to SAC's rules. Asked whether previous
knowledge of the affiliation with the CPC-
(ML) would have affected SAC's decision he
said, "I think it would have influenced our
decision somewhat, but it wouldn't have
changed (the outcome). They are on a probation period at the moment and if they do
anything that is contrary to the interests of
the Alma Mater Society, they will be
deconstituted immediately."
Cliff Stewart, SAC secretary, plainly
stated SAC could make no moral decisions or
prejudge the committee. "We have clubs
on this campus as far left as Stalin and as far
to the right as Attila the Hun. If we condemned everyone's beliefs, we would be
schizophrenic."
The problem is not the committee's beliefs.
The problem is the AMS has now given
credibility to a group of people who have a
history of violence and a reputation of trying
to disrupt progressive movements.
On Oct. 17, the People's Front Against
Racist and Fascist Violence allegedly
disrupted a rally, sending three people to
hospital and injuring several others. The
B.C. Organization to Fight Racism sponsored the rally in Vancouver's South
Memorial park to publicly demonstrate
against the Ku Klux Klan.
Two weeks previous, Oct. 4th, another rally had been held for the same purpose. The
People's Front had again allegedly smashed
SAG "We have
clubs on this campus
as far left as Stalin
and as far right as
Attila the Hun.
»
peaceful demonstrators with sticks from their
placards. The BCOFR unsuccessfully tried to
avoid confrontation with the Front.
According to Al Soroka, a spokesperson
for the committee against racist and fascist
violence and CPC(M-L) member, the
BCOFR didn't allow the CPC(M-L) to state
their opinion. "They attacked us first," he
claimed. "When provoked, we will fight
back," he added.
A student spokesperson for the committee,
Garnet Colly said there is a certain amount of
confusion about the rally because of press
coverage. "The media created mass hysteria
over the incident," he added as a justification for the Front's actions.
Colly concluded that "self-defence is the
only way to fight violence." Fight violence
with violence? He said the committee's main
aim is "to unite in action against racist and
fascist ideology." The word "action"
presumably means smashing other people
over the head with sticks.
The committee has taken upon itself to
fight the cutbacks. Colly has recently handed
out a petition opposing the planned tuition
increase and circulated it among UBC
students pretending it was sponsored by the
Students for an Accessible Education, an independent ad hoc group. When the SAE
found out, it condemned the petition. Colly
promptly issued a scathing statement criticizing SAE.
SAE spokesperson Paul Yaskowich said
his group never agreed on the petition that
Colly made, in its entirety." He set up a committee on his own without SAE's permission
or that of the arts undergraduate society so in
effect he disassociated with us."
Yaskowich added: "by way of implication,
he's trying to use the credibility of the SAE to
lend credit to his own organization, the committee against racist and fascist violence."
On behalf of the AUS of which Yaskowich is
president, he said arts members were concerned about being associated with that
group because of their involvement in violent
demonstrations.
In his condemnation of the SAE, Colly
claimed the SAE is ' 'the private preserve of a
couple of student hacks who are not
answerable to anyone and never claimed to
be democratic." Yaskowich said the paper is
"a derogatory piece on SAE which I consider
to be slander." Page 6

Cults turn victims into children
From page 3
by deprogrammers, the group moved mainly at night without telling
recruits the locationof their new
camps.
During this time, the cult was using Mark to draw Rahn deeper into
the group.
"I came to trust Mark very
much. I was almost in a child-like

their devotion. But they're never
satisfied with what they get. They
make you feel you never give
enough. I heard of one girl in New

when we played baseball I would

bad."
The group spent four weeks moving from camp to camp in the
Eastern States, spending their time
playing team sports, and hearing
more on the Unification Church until they eventually arrived in Atlanta.
"All during our time together,
the group had been working up to
beginning fund raising, but they
kept on saying not to worry about
it.

By SHAFFIN SHARIFF
Looker, the new Michael
Crichton film, is a piece of fluff.
That is not to say that the film is excessively inept. Quite frankly,
Looker is a silly, enjoyable film,
and a pleasant surprise.
Looker
Starring Albert Finney and
Susan Day
Playing at Capitol Six
The plot, which has something to
do with "perfect female types" getting killed because of a top-secret
experiment to construct computer
images with hypnotic light rays for
mass television manipulation. Enter
Albert Finney, selfless soul and
Beverly Hills plastic surgeon, who is
concerned because the models getting killed are all his patients. The
good doctor takes it upon himself
to rescue one remaining model
(Susan Dey).
Enter James Coburn as a suave,
sophisticated, and dashing
millionaire (what else is new?) who
is the mastermind behind the
Looker laboratory, where engineers
are perfecting the Looker gun,
which gives the illusion of invisibility.
This is harmless, mindless stuff,
to be viewed with tongue in cheek.
Looker isn't as sophisticated as the
James Bond thrillers, but it is in the
same vein as Coburn's own B-grade
Our Man Flint film series. There are
some amusing moments along the
way, particularly take-offs on
television commercials and the
North American television viewing
habits. However, Looker isn't as
controlled and as fun as
Chrichton's earlier Great Train
Robbery.

cult members drive themselves
16-20 hours a day selling flowers,
candy, candles or anything they
think will make a profit.
Cult members speak of "heavenly deception," a phrase used to
qualify misrepresentating
themselves either in fund raising or
recruitment. According to the
Unification Church, those outside
the group are agents of Satan.
Therefore, any fabrication can be
used to take money from them to
draw these people into the cults.
The usual day for fund raisers involves waking at 6 a.m. followed by
prayers and exercise. Breakfast is
served at 7:30. Any meetings for the
day are held after breakfast and
fund raising begins at 9. Each team
is assigned a specific area which
they cover on foot and usually
alone, often working till late into
the evening with only a short break
for lunch, they would return to the
Centre for dinner around 9 p.m.
If new recruits were expected,
some members would return early
to give the introductory lecture.
New recruits took part in a follow-
up discussion after dinner and when
it was over, the members would
hold their prayer meeting. Many
members would do their Bible
readings before going to bed.
Rahn adds they slept about four
hours a night and were well fed but
some members said they were
thankful they now had enough
money to eat better.
Fortunately for Rahn, Mark was
sent to New York to recruit for the
Church. Her doubts about fund
raising and Mark's departure made
her reconsider her relationship with
the Unification Church.
During the month Rahn was
missing, her parents began searching for their daughter. Tracing
her to Atlanta, they hired two men
to pick her up and flew into Atlanta
themselves.
Rahn's parents visited the house
where she was staying and after
talking for some time asked her to
go for a ride. "I got in the car and
was kidnapped."
The Rahns drove for ten hours to
a deprogramming camp in Virginia.
"I wanted to go back to the
Moonies but in the car I began
reading Crazy for God which had
the exact same experiences as
mine.
"Doubts began to develop but I
still felt the world was in a mess and
if Moon couldn't save it no one
could.
"I felt very negative and thought
that Moon was the last hope."

"When I woke up in the morning, I spent two hours just lying in

"I spent a week at the

disputed everything with the
deprogrammers but eventually I
stopped and began accepting

"I spent the week there observing
people from other cults and was
amazed at the similarities in cult experience."
Rahn says the cult's control is insidious. "The Unification Church
believes in reaching people individually. It's slower, but surer.
Once you have a person's soul you
have them totally.
"Cults are dangerous because
they mock values which are a
necessary part of society. They take
ing called a charity. Most are just
political organizations. No one has
any idea how much Moon makes or
where it goes. It's just a front."
She concluded by saying that
cults are very detrimental to young
people. "They're not honest. What
they really do is take advantage of
people's innocence."
Rahn spent only two months in
the Moonies but that short time had
a powerful and far reaching effect
on her life.

Maranatha madness hits UBC
By ARNOLD HEDSTROM
For 14 days and 14 nights he preached.
At night he spoke to small crowds in
Buchanan, told stories, played music, and
led singalongs with words on a screen from
an overhead projector. The meeting was
slick and glossy yet casual. The friendly informal approach can only be described as
professional. Disturbingly professional.
During the day he took his platform to
the campus. He harangued and yelled at
students with the use of loudspeakers and a
microphone with a cord long enough to let
him roam among the usual large crowds
eating their lunches on SUB plaza and main
mall on a sunny fall day. After his sermon,
gospel hymns, pushed to high volume,
echoed around campus.
The small crowds at Buchanan each night
speak for the popularity of Rice Broocks,
the touring minister for Maranatha
Ministries International, a group totally
concerned with converting individuals to
his church. The first night of his UBC
crusade six students attended. Wednesday
in SUB, a regular meeting had about 30
participants. The group is small but growing.
But resentment to the Maranatha was
also growing on campus. The Alma Mater
Society, the registrar's office, student
counselling and The Ubyssey all received
numerous complaints. Most protested
Maranatha disturbing the peace but some
parents objected to dramatic personality
changes in their sons' and daughters'
behavior, according to former student administrative commission chair Bill
Maslechko. SAC is concerned enough that
at its last meeting members investigated the
possibility of deconstituting the group as a
campus club. SAC's major concerns were
the complaints and non-UBC influence.
UBC is not the first Canadian university
to have organizers vaulted in to establish
Maranatha. Two years ago the group
started a ministry at the University of
Waterloo in Ontario. The campus chaplains
from Waterloo reacted with caution according to Reverend Al Evans of St. Paul's
College.
BROOCKS . . . don't listen, just walk off
"We felt it would be better to keep talking with them rather than force them
underground," says Evans. "One must be
very wary of these people. They know how
to control people. They are dangerous and
not to be trusted."
Evans says they use typical cult actions:
high pressure verbal assault and preying on
individuals who are isolated from the community or families.
UBC chaplain George Hermanson agrees
with Evans. "They're not any different
than EST. They view the task of change in
our society as a personal one and not a
social problem."
The Maranatha people offer short truncated answers to complex human problems.
Broocks defends his church's viewpoint.
He says the wisdom of God covers every
area of human life. "The simplicity of Jesus
is that you don't have to understand all of
the things about God to give your heart to
Him and have Him begin to operate in your
life."
For Broocks, religion is a simple matter
of obedience. Obedience to God is only ac
complished by accepting Christ first, and
then, Broocks promises "meaning and purpose" to life in his sermons. A Maranatha
full color glossy pamphlet says accepting
Christ "has real and practical application to
everything you do."
Hermanson says accepting Jesus for
some people gives a temporary feeling of
security. But, "if you accept Jesus your
problems begin because you are called to
face the problems of the world."
Maranatha's view is a form of false
consciousness not gospel. Hermanson says
the Maranatha people have even gone as far
as to tell students that they don't need to
study. Jesus will take care of them.
Maranatha's individualized religion also
means that except for a few moral questions
the church is not involved in issues as are
many major religious groups. Churches in
Europe, for example, are involved in anti-
nuclear movements. In Vancouver, a coalition of churches and other groups take
strong action against welfare cuts. At UBC,
on an international scale, church groups
support human rights movements in El
Salvador, South Africa and Namibia.
Maranatha leaves such action to the individual.
But despite a failure to present a stand on
poverty and human rights violations,
Broocks is appalled by those who advocate
homosexuality as an alternative lifestyle or
favor choice on abortion. His beliefs are
not surprising considering Maranatha affiliations with organizations such as
Melodyland seminary, 100 Huntley Street,
700 Club and Full Gospel Businessmen, all
fundamentalist or conservative groups currently working in the United States or
Canada. Broocks, himself, was the
Mississippi coordinator for a political action called Washington for Jesus.
Another major Maranatha political action is to ensure that their message is heard
in the form that they want to present it.
Broocks advocates religious training to
supplement secular training offered by universities. It is a right in an intellectual community to have all forms of knowledge advanced, says Broocks. Maranatha creates
its own platform.
Maranatha and Rice Broocks feel no regret about adverse reactions from students.
Broocks says students who don't want to
hear him don't have to listen. "They don't
have to listen. They can walk off." And he
defends his method of preaching on Biblical
grounds.
"If you open up the New Testament that
is what Jesus did. He taught in the marketplace ... I never wanted to! I mean, I was
raised very properly and very socially in the
South. I wouldn't raise my voice to anyone
hardly," says Broocks. "But, you know,
there is a duty, I believe ... to do what the
Bible says."
But Maranatha is a historical, says Hermanson. Jesus and his followers did not
have microphones and a public address system.
"While Jesus did do public preaching, he
did not bang people over the head," says
Hermanson. The chaplain adds that discussions with Jesus did not involve yelling and
often involved dialogue.
Education needed
to stop cult growth
From page 1
ability to notice these things was probably
caused by her inability to rationalize.
The car did not turn down the proper street
but Demkowitz thought the driver was just
taking a different route. It turned down a
side street and she saw two joggers on both
sides of the street.
"The car went between the two joggers, it
stopped, both doors opened up, one guy
grabbed my shoulders and pushed me down,
the other guy took my mother and helped her
out of the car and into the front seat. I
started kicking this guy and yelling at my
mother to run," she said.
When her mother got into the front seat of
the car Demkowitz knew what had happened. "I knew Satan had possessed my mother
and it was not her fault that she was giving in
to Satan and had hired these animals. I didn't
know what they were going to do with me. I
was sure I was going to be raped, beaten, tied
up, and possibly even killed, because I didn't
know what Satan would do to me.
After she had settled down a little, her
mother told her that she just wanted to talk
to her. "This is a classic line because all
deprogramming is, is a process of giving the
cultist an opportunity to see things they were
not exposed to in the cult. While in the cult
they had been separated from the real world
by being told that the newspapers, radio, and
television were written by Satanic people."
She spent three days in a house talking
with a deprogrammer and his assistants for
12 to 15 hours a day. "What deprogramming
does, is it tries to get you to use your own
mind to separate you from the cult beliefs
and environment. They give you food and let
you sleep and ask you questions like why do
you need guns in The Way Corps," she adds.
"It's a chipping away of a brick wall to get
you to think for yourself."
Once the person begins to think for
themselves they go on a rehabilitation program of rest and relaxation that gives them
time to think of what happened to them and
learn why they did it.
During her rehabilitation program
Christine had the opportunity to talk to
former members of the Moonies (Unification
Church) and the Hare Krishnas, who to her
surprise had the same or very similar experience as she had had in The Way International.
Demkowitz has also worked with other
deprogrammers, assisting them in helping
kids like herself.
Today Demkowitz has recovered from her
experience in The Way International. She remains cautious of all cultist groups and will
not talk to members for great lengths of time.
She is angry at The Way for what they did
to her, but she realizes that the only way to
curb their success is to educate others.
"I think public education is basically the
only thing that is going to make people see
the danger of cults and is going to make any
kind of dent in the wall that these cults have
built — financially, mentally, whatever."
The cults are growing at an incredible rate." Page 8

Ticket exposes cult tactics
By JULIE WHEELWRIGHT
One of the biggest corporations
in the United States is currently
operating with slave labor; young
people who are deprived of proper
nutrition, sleep, medical attention
and their ability to think.
And they do this perfectly legally.
In 1980 Montreal journalist Josh
Freed wrote a book about his successful attempt to get his long time
friend Benjie back from this group,
the followers of Reverend Sun
Myung Moon or the Moonies.
Freed's book not only exposed
the maltreatment of the young
volunteers but Moon's extensive income from their sale of flowers,
and his restaurants, munitions factories, jewellery stores, fish plants
etc.
Ticket to Heaven
Directed by R.L. Thomas
Playing at The Park
And now the film. Ticket to
Heaven essentially documents
Freed's siory of rescuing his friend
from the Moonies in California.
The filmakers were very careful to
change the names in the picture and
it carries a disclaimer stating that al!
the characters are fictional.
But the story is the same and the
only disappointment is that the corporate aspects of Moon's operation
were noi more fully exposed.
Visually the film adds great impact
to the scenes of the recruitment
camps and it is well worth seeing.
A few changes have been made to
the original story. David (Nick
Mancuso) Larry (Saul Rubinek's)
long time friend, breaks up with his
live in woman friend and travels to
California.
David arrives at a "commune
which isn't a commune" to visit
a Canadian friend and is enticed to
spend a week at a nearby camp. The
camp is really the Heavenly
Children's recruitment centre where
David is subjected to constant
touching, bombarded with lectures,
encouraged to confess his "sins"
and deprived of sleep.
The game of dodge ball becomes
a "love-bomb" as the infectious
leader Ruthie (Kim Cattrall) urges
the players to shout "boot with
love, watch with love." As Freed
describes the experience, "the chanting continued hypnotically,
without let-up for two hours. It did
not rise or fall with good or bad
plays; it simply continued."
The constant touching, shouting,
exhaustion all combine to unglue
David's self-image and in the end he
"snaps." His hair is shaven and he
becomes another glassy-eyed
Moonie, peddling his flowers on the
streets under false pretenses.
His family and Larry become
deeply concerned and set out a plan
to get him back. Unfortunately the
filmakers decided to turn David's
mother (Marcia Diamond) into a
stereotypical Jewish mother. The
scene where the family and friends
kidnap David is also turned into a
journalist is puzzling. The comedy
again detracts from the tension and
does not really add to the film.
Aside from these criticisms the
film's message is clear; cults like the
Moonies are dangerous. They prey
on people's vulnerability, their need
for reassurance in a difficult world.
After watching the chilling account
of life in a cult in Ticket To
Heaven, you may never buy
another flower from a glassy eyed
stranger.

from the central drama.
But even these flaws are not far
from Freed's book. The kidnapping
scene was chaotic, the participants
faced a jail sentence for their crime
and they were amateurs. The
California police did eventually
catch up to David's parents but they
were released after only a few days.
The most effective acting comes
from Ralph Thomas who plays
David's deprogrammer, Line

Beau-pere near perfect whole
By SHAFFIN SHARIFF
"People have always liked the
humor in my films, except when I
make fun of women. But actually,
my films make fun of everyone,
both men and women. I love all
kinds of caricature."
—Bertrand Blier
director
Blier is absolutely correct — his
new French film, Beau-pere is nothing but a caricature. A caricature of
the characters and the mise-en-
scene, an elaborate dream balloon
concocted by a writer-director who
thought, what if. . .? What if a
14-year-old fell in love with her
30-year-old stepfather, and all sorts
of complications, ensued? What if
these two people were basically likeable people looking for affection,
and found it nowhere except in each
other?
Beau-pere
Directed by Bertrand Blier
Starring Patrick Dewaere
and Ariel Besse
Playing at the Bay
Beau-pere opens with a striking
tracking shot of a restaurant. The
camera, fixated on the mirrored
ceiling, begins to track slowly, until
the perspective is right side up, normal. It continues to glide smoothly
until we have a full shot of Remi
(Patrick Dewaere), a piano player.
He stares at the camera, addressing
DEWAERE . . . with Besse in frank comedy
the: audience directly. He introduces
himself and gives us a short history
of his life: he is married, has a wife
who's a model, and a 14-year-old
stepdaughter. As soon as the camera beings to move again, he stops
addressing the audience; he is now a
character in the movie, not an omniscient narrator.
Remi is a talented jazz pianist,
but he is broke. His wife, Martine
(Nicole Garcia) humiliates herself
by posing as a model for lingerie
ads. On her way to an interview,
Martine has a car accident and is
killed. "What can you say?" asks
Remi. "An intersection, a truck, a
poor reflex." Remi — the Beau-
pere of this film — is now daughter
Marion's guardian.
What happens next — a sexual
relationship involving Remi and
Marion (Ariel Besse) — could have
been a field day for a neo-realist
filmmaker. Indeed, the scenario is
ripe for a harsh, potentially exploitive treatment of degradation and
breakdown (James A. Cain wrote a
novel with similar circumstances,
Butterfly). But Bertrand Blier, who
also directed the academy award-
winning Get Out Your Handkerchiefs, isn't the least bit interested
in any social (or torrid) ramifications of the affair.
One could liken Blier to a behav-
ioralist, dissecting his characters
with a fine precision without any
deep emotional attachment to any
of them. Wry, almost satiric humor
plays an essential part in Beau-pere.
The film is superior to Get Out
Your Handkerchiefs — for example, the audience doesn't feel left
out of the joke and the irony of the
situation (the title beau-pere, has a
dual meaning: handsome or wonderful father, or stepfather).
Beau-pere indicates that Blier's
roots are filmly planted in a poetic
sensibility of Renoir and Truffaut;
Blier was Truffaut's assistant director for many years. The Blier of
Beau-pere isn't a humorist unsure
of his film craft, as he seemed to be
with Get Out Your Handkerchiefs.
Despite the film's luminous performances, Beau-pere is very much
a director's movie.
Working with cinematographer
Sacha Vierny, Blier has created a
controlled, brightly-lit world for
Remi and Marion. The director's
presence is continually felt in this
film. The most obvious reminder is
the constantly moving camera. The
fluidity of technique — Blier always
cuts on motion — matches the
film's structure and style. Beau-
pere is like a beautiful dream, a
subtly comic investigation of its
leading characters, Remi and
Marion.
Blier is almost too fond of using
the tracking camera, and most of
the time, the tracking isn't motivated by the narrative. Yet the movement gives the film, a giddy, romantic feel. Watching Beau-pere,
you can't help but admire the degree of control Blier exhibits over
the plot developments without stifling the characters' freedom and impact.
The actors have a brilliant rapport with the camera, and most of
them, at one time or another, stare
directly at the camera and address
the camera (a nice touch). Patrick
Dewaere, who seemed almost invisible in Get Out Your Handkerchiefs, has his best role to date.
Remi's character demands a full
range of subtlety and control since
the ironic twist at the end of the
film hinges on Dewaere's performance.
Ariel Besse, making her screen
debut, has the angelic charm of an
ingenue and none of sultriness of a
Lolita. She has a natural, innocent
face that adds a touch of ambiguity
about her motives. The script calls
for her to discuss the most intimate
part of her body, and Besse succeeds marvelously, delivering her
lines with a frankness that is more
than a little disarming.
The world that Blier has dreamed
up for his characters is slightly off
kilter, and slightly absurd; things
are never as they seem. Marion's
candid revelations startle us at first,
but Blier doesn't set her up as a
stereotyped sex goddess. At the
end, it is her innocence, her romantic delusions that stay with us.
Remi, on the other hand, appears
confused and disoriented; he is
broke and yet responsible for Marion's welfare. But toward the end of
the film, our impression of him
changes. Remi has always been disoriented and penniless, never being
able to fulfill his ambitions and
hopes. (He reminds one of Charlie
Chaplin's Little Tramp character.)
Dewaere and Besse dominate the
movie — as they should. But the
supporting actors deserve a mention also. Maurice Risch is excellent as Remi's lifelong friend who
works nights, while Remi keeps
borrowing money from him and his
family. Nathalie Baye, who was in
Godard's Sauve Qui Peut La Vie,
has a merely functional role in this
film, as does Nicole Garcia, last
seen in Alan Resnais' Mon Oncle
D'Amerique.
Beau-pere has an appropriately
jazzy soundtrack, thanks to Phillipe
Sarde's exuberant score (Sardi composed music for Roman Polanski's
Tess also). The director's images
and the musical score frequently
compliment each other. Early in the
movie, for example, a wonderful
synthesis is reached. As Dewaere is
speaking to the audience the tone
and pitch of his voice fluctuate with
and match the rhythm of the music.
And Maurice Wander's jazz piano
is particularly suited to Blier's
tracking camera.
The components of this film
form a near perfect whole. Beau-
pere is one of the year's most graceful, intelligent comedies. But more
importantly, it is a testimonial to
Blier's talent. Considering the improvement over his last film, Get
Out Your Handkerchiefs, it is exciting to anticipate the Blier to come
after Beau-pere.
Time Bandits Gilliam's triumph
By CHARLES CAMPBELL
No doubt. The Time Bandits
is a very good film. But it's one
of those long awaited films that
has become for many a victim of
-its own hype. Because of all the
pre-release publicity a lot of people have gone to see it with a fixed idea of what to expect.
Many people think that the
Time Bandits is a Monty Python
film, which it's not. Though it
was directed by Monty Python
animator, Terry Gilliam, and
was co-written by Gilliam and
Pythonite Michael Palin, only
Palin and John Cleese of the
British comedy group make appearances in the film and they
are brief.
The Time Bandits
Directed by Terry Gilliam
Playing at the Dunbar
and the Odeon.
Other people expected The
Time Bandits to be the
quintessential children's film,
which it's not. It's a film that
tries to entertain both adults and
kids occasionally ignoring one in
favor of the other.
But while the episodic plot
may not always be sophisticated
enough for adults and the humor
is occasionally too subtle for the
kids The Time Bandits still succeeds in being great entertain-
Blend of adventure, farce
ment for both. And it never
bores or patronizes.
Despite the mature rating and
the liberal dose of Monty
Python style humor Gilliam intended the film primarily for
children. "I found that a lot of
the nuances in Monty Python
that went over the heads of
adults were picked up by the
kids," he says.
The film takes the form of a
child's fantasy or adventure;
we're never sure which. Kevin,
the inevitable child hero, is a
precocious child whose life is
plagued by his parents' mundane
concern with kitchen gadgets,
game shows and bedtimes. His
home, set in the near future, is a
parallel hell of suburban bad
taste complete with chesterfields
and lamp shades still in their factory fresh plastic covers.
Kevin retreats to his toy filled
bedroom which is promptly invaded by a knight in shining armor who crashes through the
closet door, leaps over Kevin's
bed and retreats down a tree lined alley. When Kevin's father
complains about the noise, there
is no damage. Both Kevin and
the audience are left wondering
whether the knight was fantasy
or reality.
The next night Kevin goes to
bed with his polaroid. That's
when the time bandits
themselves arrive. These six
dwarfs were the supreme being's
assistants in creation. After
screwing up in trees and shrubs
they were relegated to repairs.
Dissatisfied, they steal their
boss' map to the flaws in the
universe — seven holes in time
that allow them to travel freely
through the past and future.
Kevin leaves with this uncertain group and they are off to
the 1700s to rob Napoleon. Taking advantage of the famous
general's weakness for short
people they literally steal his
right hand fleeing to the middle
ages.
There they meet Robin Hood,
a stuffy con artist in a crayon
green leotard, played by John
Cleese.
"So you're a robber? Jolly
good. How long have you been a
robber?" asks the hood in a patronizing tone as he plans a little
robbing of his own.
"The poor are going to be absolutely delighted," he says as he
paws Napoleon's treasure.
"Absolutely thrilled. You must
meet them. Charming people.
Of course they haven't got two
cents to rub together but that's
because they're poor. Marion
would you ask the poor to come
in please?"
Sean Connery's appearance in
the film adds an interesting twist
to the idea of the film as
childhood fantasy. Kevin saves
the helmeted Agamemnon (Connery) from the minotaur and
when the Greek hero removes his
helmet it's an ancient James
Bond who owes Kevin a debt.
Agamemnon takes Kevin on
as a son, leaving the time bandits
to save Kevin from the plotting
Clymenestra and the vengeful
string of murders that plagued
Agamemnon's family.
The film culminates with the
dwarfs trying to bilk Evil himself
against Kevin's wise admonitions. They don't know that they
are falling into Evil's trap. The
master of the computer chip,
lasers and subscriber trunk dialing has a design of his own — to
get hold of the dwarfs' map and
thereby control the world.
Gilliam shows considerable
talent as a director, coaxing fine
performances from all the actors. The dwarfs emerge as six
distinct characters, Kevin (Craig
Warnock) is not too cute and
Evil (David Warner) is suitably
bitchy.
Michael Palin and Shelly
Duval are perfect as a pair of
awkward unconsummated upper
crust British lovers.
Sir Ralph Richardson is
memorable as the supreme being. He's an absent minded
Wizard of Oz style of god. The
self-proclaimed nice one
remarks after a noisy materialization: "I can't stand un-
tidyness. I want all this mess
picked up."
Visually the film is superb. In
essence an animated film with
live characters, The Time Bandits is done with taste and class
that would flatter The Lord of
the Rings (so recently botched by
Ralph Bakshi).
The special effects, supervised
by John Bunker of Star Wars
fame, are great when they need
to be but fortunately never
become the excuse for the film.
The Time Bandits is not the
greatest film of the decade by
any means. But given the
number of mindless comedies
made for kids these days, and
the number of adventure films
that sanctify violence it remains
fair to say that this strange blend
of fantasy, adventure, farce and
satire (with a quotient of subtle
wisdom) is one of the best films
for children since the Wizard of
Oz. Page 10

Beurling fails to buzz
'Vfvwf&ntffomHetr-
By BRIAN JONES
George "Buzz" Beurling was a
Canadian war hero, a fighter pilot
ranked among the top 10 of the Second World War Allied aces, who by
the age of 21 was as familiar to Canadians as then prime minister
Mackenzie King.
The reader is introduced to Beurling in his boyhood — a nice religious kid with strict but loving parents who has an insatiable love for
airplanes. He paid for flying lessons
by building and selling balsa wood
model planes, and quit school at 16
to pursue an aviation career.
Hero: The Buzz Beurling Story
By Brian Nolan
Published by Lester and
Orpen Dennys
201 pages $14.95
Luckily for Beurling, World War
II breaks out. After being rejected
by the RCAF, he sails to England to
join the RAF and eventually ends
up in Malta, where in just three
months he becomes a top ace and
Canadian hero. He arrives home, in
1944 and proposes marriage to his
pretty girl friend. He meets the
prime minister and travels across
the country selling war bonds for
the government.
Sounds like a Hollywood script,
doesn't it? Unfortunately, that's exactly the way author Brian Nolan
treats it. The book is essentially a
chronology of Beurling's heroic exploits, both in and out of the cockpit. In his adulation of Beurling,
Nolan neglects any and all serious
analysis of the man and his life.
It is obvious that Beurling joined
the air force only because of his
love of flying. The killing that came
with it was not contemplated, and
Beurling also came to love even
that. A Toronto newspaper described Beurling, in his obituary, as
"perhaps the coldest, deadliest human who ever sat behind an aircraft's sights and smiled happily as
he watched his foe being blasted to
pieces."
Yet even this gruesome descrip
tion is an understatement. Beurling's personality and character are
best exemplified by a vivid description he himself gave of how he flew
his Spitfire to within 30 yards of an
Italian pilot before firing at point
blank range.
"One of my cannon shells caught
him right in the face and blew his
head right off. The body slumped
and the slipstream caught the neck,
the stub of the neck, and the blood
streamed down the side of the cockpit," Beurling said.
"It was a great sight anyway, the
red blood down the white fuselage.
I must say it gives you a feeling of
satisfaction when you actually blow
their brains out."
Beurling was a soldier who obviously enjoyed his work, and for this
Nolan gives him praise and accolades. Nolan staunchly defends
Beurling against the claim, quite
justifiably made, that he was a
"cold-blooded killer." His 31 victims are not treated as human beings who lost their lives, but as mere
statistics necessary for Beurling's
climb to hero status.
The horror and reality of war are
neglected in favor of ceaseless hero
worship. A search for a rational,
moral justification for warfare, for
Beurling's actions, and for his hero
status is not even considered, either
by Beurling or Nolan.
But Nolan's power of description
should not be overlooked. His introduction is definitely classic:
"TAKALI AIRFIELD, Malta. The
summer of 1942. The atmosphere
of the island is surreal: a lime green
sky at dawn and pastel butterflies
flitting about between the falling
bombs." Prose such as this makes it
hard to believe that Nolan is a professor of journalism at Carleton
University.
George Beurling's life story is one
which should hold the reader spellbound, and would if treated in a sophisticated manner. Unfortunately,
Nolan's biography is at best interesting but simple, and at worst
mundane. It is merely a Hollywood
war story put into print.
Hugo's tragic hunchback
Foon's frivolous travesty
By KERRY REGIER
Victor Hugo's novel Notre Dame
de Paris is filled with the image of
the Cathedral, an immense grey
mountain, a million tons of stone
weighing down every word.
Hunchback of Notre Dame
By Dennis Foon
Directed by Roger Hodgman
At the Queen Elizabeth Playhouse
In the shadow of the cathedral
Hugo ranges his characters: Pierre
Gringoire, poet; Esmerelda, gypsy
girl, hunting for her lost mother;
the old hermit-woman, waiting for
her daughter's return; Dom Frollo,
Archdeacon of Notre Dame; and
his virtual slave, the hideously
distorted bellringer Quasimodo.
Hugo's tale centers around
Frollo's desire for Esmerelda and
his plans to ensnare her, using the
other chracters as pawns. Slowly
they are all drawn to destruction by
their tragic fates; Hugo may have
drawn his inspiration when, exploring the cathedral, he discovered
"carved by hand on the wall in a
dark recess of one of the towers, the
word 'fatality.' "
Dennis Foon, in his adaptation of
Notre   Dame   de   Paris   for   the
Playhouse stage, attempted to produce a parody of Hugo, but achieved travesty instead.
VS
,  FOON . . . resurrects Hugo
Hugo's Quasimodo, for example,
is a creature of the dark, half-
animal like the cathedral's
gargoyles and seen only in glimpses
or at a distance. Foon's Quasimodo
speaks in a Yorkshire-Cockney
dialect and constantly makes silly
speeches to the audience. He tries to
be profound, when he compares his
own ugliness to the audience's
general attractiveness, saying that if
he ripped our faces off we'd look
the same, wouldn't we? Foon's
Quasimodo is not even ugly —
merely cute and sweet.
The general effect is to transform
Hugo's tragedy, simultaneously expansive and claustrophobic, into a
bedroom farce, including a scene in
which Captain Phoebus draws
Esmerelda's blouse tantalizingly
open.
True, the entire play is set in the
stage that is part of the Cathedral,
but it is dark, without capturing its
vastness. The ridiculous papier-
mache bells did nothing to improve
the effect.
Only Frollo, played by Peter
Haworth, retained some of Hugo's
power. Haworth played Frollo
strongly, seriously, with enormous
determination and an undercurrent
of sweaty cold fear of losing his
deepest desire.
In Hugo's novel, the hunchback
pushes Frollo off one of the towers,
and Frollo hangs agonizingly in
space from a lead pipe, surrounded
by gargoyles. Finally the pipe
breaks, and Frollo crashes onto the
roof of a Paris house, and onto the
pavement, dead. Foon instead has
Quasimodo strangle Frollo — a
gesture frivolous, weak, and almost
incongruous, like almost everything
in the play.
BUZZ BEURLING . . . hero worship of soldier who loved his work
Raven and fans: no I
By DIRK SION
There was no great emotion
shared between performer and audience when David Raven and the
Escorts played before a mild milling
of dazed souls Friday evening in the
SUB ballroom.
Indeed, the greatest show of emotion occurred when David Raven
kicked at and exchanged obscenities
with a member of the audience who
had taken a swig out of Raven's
bottle of wine.  Ironically,  it was
with the same bottle in hand that
Raven saluted the crowd and told
them to enjoy themselves.
The evening began with a set by
"special guests" who unfortunately
subdued the minds of the audience
into passivity and received their only applause when they were leaving
the stage.
When the Escorts finally appeared the crowd did not seem to
care much. As the band began to
Dobbs chronicles
By DAVID FRASER
It is the early 1950s and colonies
have long since become liabilities
for Britain. Independence is on the
horizon for the native peoples of
British East Africa, the scene of Kil-
dare Dobbs' recent novella Pride
and Fall.
Expectations are high, if not unrealistic, of the material gains
Uhuru, or freedom, will bring when
the white Wazangu transfer power
to Africans.
Pride and Fall
By Kildare Dobbs
Published by Clark Irwin
164 pages, $12.95
St. John Russell, the central character, is a junior officer fed up with
the petty and pompous British colonial protocol. He deviates from
the superficial etiquette of his
fellow colonial administrators,
"outcasts from England (who) saw
themselves as keeping up standards
that had been allowed to lapse in
England."
Russell is caught making love to a
teenage African woman, and convicted for concealing a pair of ivory
tusks a native hunter had given him
as a gift.
The hypocrisies of British rule are
revealed as British intelligence offer
him a job after serving time. By
then, British colonial attitudes had
changed, and Russell's administrative experience was considered useful for dealing with newly-emancipated African states.
Having served in the British Colonial Service in Tanganyika from
1948 to 1952, Dobbs can write with
an intimate comprehension of Africa's landscape, wildlife and tribal
customs. But he most lucidly describes the society of English transplants who ruled Africa, and performed their duties under the "savagely hot" African sun which
"shone indifferently on good and
evil."
These colonials' lives are ridden
with boredom and mediocrity. Marital relations and strained and
dreary; long periods of separation
often lead to unfaithfulness, a subject dealt with in greater detail.
In three of the six short stories accompanying the novella, Dobbs'
portraits of the colonial hierarchy
are humorous. He sketches imper- amber 27, 1981

MacLennan's voices
compelling despite
some loose ends
By KERRY REGIER
"A warm morning in June, not a
cloud in the sky, another winter and
a long cold spring gone over at last
and the lilac was in bloom again."
Hugh MacLennan begins his latest book, Voices in Time, with a
metaphor for the complete novel. It
is loosely a science-fiction story,
with its principal character, John
Wellfleet, writing of his past from
the year 2030.
Voices in Time
By Hugh MacLennan
Penguin Books
Voices in Time has an ingenious
multilayered plot, with characters
and locations reaching back deeper
into Wellfleet's past, more remote
from his direct knowledge, and ending with accounts of relatives he
never met, drawn from papers
found in a box. MacLennan uses
this increasing removal from personal experience as a tool for, so to
speak, standing farther from his
subject which becomes larger and
deeper.
The beginning of the novel
sounds like a polemic against the irrationality of 1981 and nuclear war.
Much of the early pages are spent in
windy moralizing on subjects familiar to everyone, especially to science fiction readers. Television, political bumbling, modern morals, all
these and more are targets for MacLennan; but he says nothing new,
and rarely says it eloquently.
Dve lost
play a few brave members of the audience hazily rose from their seats
to dance. As the band played on,
adequately hammering out their
numbers, the audience continually
rose from their seats to fill the
dance floor.
The Escorts performed two sets,
relying heavily on the Rolling
Stones for material. Nothing exciting ever happened and the audience mildly rolled along.
Thus went the evening.
Later on MacLennan drops some
of the moralizing tone and involves
us in the characters. Conrad Deh-
mel takes us back to Nazi Germany
and approaches the mythic, as opposed to the mere symbolism, of the
earlier characters. In Dehmel, MacLennan has infused a deeply feeling
spirit, caught in a trap between personal   and   family  loyalties.   With
WORDSMITH MacLENNAN
. . .relates history of future
nuclear war, a tale of loss
and suffering.
Dehmel, he watches the great Germanic culture of Goethe, Einstein,
Beethoven and Kafka vanish utterly
with Hitler's rise to power. In these
passages MacLennan's prose is
most passionate: he feels, and
wants his readers to feel, the loss
suffered by everyone.
Had MacLennan concentrated on
this idea he might have created a
powerful novel, and one with
greater unity than Voices in Time.
Instead, he overgeneralizes and is
unable to handle the vastness of his
structure. Huge areas of the plot are
covered with but a sentence or two,
sometimes leaving the impression
MacLennan was simply lazy, and
didn't bother tying up loose ends.
This sloppiness contributes to the
collapse of the novel's total structure. The connections in time between characters are tenuous at
best, linked as they are by trite devices MacLennan uses, and sometimes only barely connected by the
smallest coincidences.
But despite the structural shortcomings and the occasional grandstanding, MacLennan has created a
compelling book. Much tension is
derived from the details of the character's dilemmas, and though MacLennan could not weld the details
into a coherent structure, if the
book is approached as a collection
of loosely related short stories it can
be satisfying.
British colonialism
ious, paternalistic British officials
who discuss their insufficient salaries over brandy and cigars, not
overly concerned about the rising
star of African nationalism.
Dobbs' insightful studies of African tribesmen are also enthralling.
Though resenting the interlopers to
their land: the whites, Indians and
Arabs, native aspirations to independence are tied to a dream of material abundance.
East Africans believed writing,
bicycles, gramophones, a house
with a good roof, shoes, and other
manifestations of white culture possessed a type of magic; things that
give strength. "Witamins" give
powerful thoughts.
In an ecstatic tribal ceremony,
energized by copious amounts of
millet beer, tribesmen sing and
dance to the glories of Uhuru. Asked by his wife of the meaning of
"this freedom," an African guide
retorts: "It is the honey in the
comb, the sap in the bamboo in spring that makes you drunk, the marrow in the thigh bone. It is the
sperm in the loins and the milk in
the breast; it is the force that gives
the world strength."
The Happy Warrior is a short
story about a British soldier who
delights in killing, enough to make
the sanguinary authors of Soldier of
Fortune magazine proud.
A Question of Motive and A
Memsahib's Confession deals with
the indifelity of jaded colonial
housewives who despise their frustrated, lonely lives. Long periods of
tropical-isolation are common; husbands are away for weeks inspecting game and village schools and return exhausted.
Yusuf and Maria concerns the
twisted sexual appetite of an English prison officer's wife who repeatedly attempts to seduce a Masai
houseboy. Yusuf suspects her of
witchcraft and slashes her to death
in self defence. He is sentenced and
hanged, a victim of an alien rule
which seldom worked simply because the colonial English "were no
longer serious about their power."
Pride and Fall is an excellent collection of yarns about an anachro-
nous colonial society peopled by
outcasts who realized their brand of
government was, as Dobbs described it, "a distraction, a long trip, a
voyage with no destination."
Hamp tense and realistic
By WENDY CUMMING
In a cacaphony of bullets, boots
and British dialects, Hamp, first of
Studio 58's World War I plays,
renders a mockery of the so-called
'justice of law.'
Hamp, the bumbling, naive
private has been charged with desertion, and his predicament marches
us directly into his character
development.
Before enlisting voluntarily in the
army, Hamp worked in an iron
mill. He is not stupid, but does have
trouble expressing himself. Played
by Michael Viro, Hamp is innocently childlike. As he answers questions too honestly, trembles and
tugs at his clothes, Viro is ir-
resistably likeable.
Perceiving Hamp's awkward
honesty, the integral, just Lieutenant Hargreaves, who defends his
case, drills Hamp non-stop
throughout the first act, searching
for important details which may
alter his fate. Eventually
Hargreaves unravels the
psychological evidence; Hamp is
not a cold footed deserter, but a victim of shell shock, who can no
longer function in battle. This proof, when presented at Hamp's trial,
conflicts with the army's narrow
concept of justice.
Hamp's character represents
more than just the skinny, knock-
knock-kneed private. He is a prototype: the innocent victim of a
hard-headed war-time bureaucracy.
Today, he exists commonly as the
too honest, non-aggressive, obedient worker who is inevitably
crushed by the company.
Hamp
By John Wilson
Studio 58, Langara until Dec. 11
Hamp exposes the hypocrisy of
military hierarchies which produce
men like Dr. O'Sullivan, a red neck,
weaselly officer, who's cure-all is a
"Good kick in the ass." When
Hamp complains of insomnia, loss
of appetite and diarrhea,
O'Sullivan prescribes a good dose
of laxative.
O'Sullivan (Ray Harrison),
prides himself on his so called
lucidity; he is never fooled by any
young soldier's fabrications to
evade front line duty.
Playwright John Wilson cleverly
keeps the origins of O'Sullivan's
vindictiveness ambigious. We're
not certain whether his obstinance
is typical of his personality or pro-
.duced bv the war.
When O'Sullivan regurgitates his
personal statement of principles at
Hamp's trial, the scene becomes a
tug-of-war between the justice of
humanity and the absurdity of
military ethics. On the one side
literally resting is the wai' panel
who, with rigid morals, refuse to
consider Hamp's psychological
state. On the other side swells
Hamp's touching testimony of his
experience in Passchendaele. While
trapped in a shell hole, Hamp sees
his friend, not more than five yards
away, get blown to bits. The blue
and yellow pieces spattered so badly
that he had to get a new uniform.
Hamp's Passchendaele experience is comparable to Robertson Davies' novel, Fifth Business,
where Dunstan Ramsay, also trapped in a shell hole, gets hit in the
leg. After dragging his numbed
body through the mud, Ramsay
unknowingly reaches a German
outpost and in his delirium, shoots
three German officers. Davies thus
emerges from the war physically
wounded, but he is soon decorated
as a hero. Hamps' suffering
transcends to a severe emotional
collapse. He just can't take any
more hallucinations or uncontrollable bouts of trembling. Charged with desertion, Hamp's chest is
donned with bullets, not medals.
But the third act is disappointingly predictable, for it provides
■unneccessary details rather than a
highly needed twist in plot. Once a
defendant is convicted, inexorably
he receives the last rights, then faces
the firing squad. Hamp's predicament is exhausted from every possible angle, leaving us little to reflect
upon. The acting also lags into mere
role playing once Hamp passes out.
However, Hamp's first two acts
provide tense, realistic drama,
which debunk the ethics of
. established justice and questions the
absurdity of war itself. An alarming
question today, due to the threat of
nuclear war.

Dear Santa. • •
Dear Santa Claus.
Last year I asked for job security, but I didn't get it. Last year I asked for
a decent wage and I didn't get that either. On a sexual harassment
grievance clause, I was also out of luck.
But this year, trusting in the belief that you're a reasonable person, even
if I suspect you don't understand my position, I'm again asking for a few
things.
A decent wage would sure be nice, I'm getting awfully sick of having to
live on macaroni and weiners because my wages as a teaching assistant are
so low. Seven thousand, two hundred dollars is really closer to the figure I
need to live decently. The university is only offering me $5,835 while the
faculty of graduate students estimates a grad student needs $6,490 a
year.
It would make my job a lot easier Santa, if I didn't have to work in a lab
where there are more students than desks, or lecture to 40 students instead
of giving individual attention in a tutorial.
In other words, Mr. Claus, quality of education is as important to me as
it is to the students I teach.
Please let me know if you can get this for me, and if you can't, remind,
all the other teaching assistants to get out and vote yes on Dec. 3.
Merry Christmas and happy contracts.
The brain wash
When people in North America woke up one morning to learn that
almost 900 people had killed themselves in the jungles of Guyana, we learned the terrifying power of cult figures.
All over Canada, cults such as the Moonies, The Way International, and
other evangelical groups are gaining momentum. They prey on people's insecurities and offer them the impossible instant happiness our culture is
programmed for.
Only two years ago a Moonie publication, Our Canada, was distributed
free at our university. University of Toronto officials say Moonies and
others have been active there.
And what do they want? Your mind.
When you give up your ability to think, you become completely dependent upon the body which does your thinking for you.
It is your duty to keep your critical faculty as keen as possible. Don't let
anyone tell you how or what to think. Even us.
Fact and fiction surround TA strike issues
On Dec. 3rd, 1981, YOU, the
bargaining unit of TA's, tutors and
markers will be asked to partake in
a strike vote. The important issues
at stake are: Wages, Union Security, and Quality of Education. A
strike vote is a serious business.
Before YOU vote, make sure you
have separated the facts from the
fiction.
FICTION: The Teaching
Assistants Union (TAU) is an
amalgamation of communists,
Trotskyites and knee-jerk liberals,
whose sole purpose is to bankrupt
UBC by excessive wage demands.
FACT: The TAU is the sole and
exclusive bargaining agent for TAs,
tutors and markers at UBC. It is
comprised of members of every
race, creed, colour and political
persuasion. Its preferred methods
are reasonable discussion and
negotiation.
FICTION: The university is concerned with the welfare of TAs, and
therefore provides them with a living wage.
FACT: By the university's own
figures, it costs $9,490 to attend
UBC for one year. When the TAU
asked for $9,400 the university
laughed so hard that it could not
reply. When the TAU asked for
$7,200, the university offered
$5,800! Reasonable?
FICTION: The administration
are reasonable people, amenable to
rational and persuasive arguments
and ready to negotiate with a spirit
of goodwill and give-and-take.
FACT: On the issues of job-
posting, union-dues, and wages, the
administration has flouted both the
letter and the spirit of the present
collective agreement. At present,
negotiations have reached an impasse, with the university not too
subtly implying: "if you want a living wage, quality of education and
union security, you will have to win
a strike vote first."
FICTION: The university is being reasonable in offering the TAU
an increase 14.2 per cent.
FACT: When you are not earning
very much, 14 per cent of it is still
not very much. The university has
been under-paying TA's for years.
With the prospects of even further
budget retrenchment, NOW is the
time for TA's to break away from
the downward spiral of piecemeal
pay awards. If you do not fight for
Prank quotes 'real'
I'm writing this letter on behalf
of all those who were "sucked in"
by the joke article about our records
being lost in a computer accident.
There's no way I or anyone else
could have known that the article
was a joke. If the Vancouver Sun
had a front page story about the
United States invading Mexico or a
terrorist attack on Paris, wouldn't
everyone believe it? I know I would.
That's why Al Banham really
misused his journalistic position in
writing that story. It was too well
done for anyone to know it was a
fake. What were even more irresponsible were the flippant remarks
made by UBC administrators, government ministers and others in
supporting this prank. It is not for
me to decide whether a chaplain
who does not believe in God "in the
biblical sense" should even be allowed on campus, but to think that
he would put the forces of religion
in the service of fraud is quite
shocking, to say the least.
If the only clue in the article that
hints that it's all a joke is the reference to Lech Walesa being in Canada for secret meetings, it's no wonder I and so many others were taken
in. Why should everyone be expected to read a newspaper article that
carefully?
Jim Schomberg
Vancouver School of Theology
a living wage this year, you certainly
will not get it next year.
FICTION: Voting yes in the coming strike vote will lead to immediate work stoppage, pickets and
indefinite strike action.
FACT: Voting yes to the strike
vote is telling the university to negotiate in good faith.
Voting yes will not lead
automatically to a strike. Instead,
large support for the union in the
strike vote will enable the union
negotiators to return to the bargaining table and tell the university that
TA's, both union and non-union
members, feel that they should be
paid more and should have some input to the courses they teach. This
should awaken the university to the
needs of a section they have consistently ignored.
FICTION: Union security is an
attempt to press-gang unwilling
TA's into the TAU. By opposing a
union security clause, the university is supporting human rights and
democracy.
FACT: The university is cynically
exploiting the weakness of the TAs
position. It hopes that the TAU will
dissipate its resources by having to
annually organize expensive and
laborious membership drives.
On the other hand, the TAU does
not want to coerce anyone into its
ranks. Under its proposal, anyone
who does not want to be a member
can simply sign a form saying so. If
however, they do not sign the form
within 30 days of hiring, they
automatically become union
members and,' in so doing, will enjoy the benefits that other people
have fought to get.
These are the issues to be decided
on Dec. 3rd. For an increase in
Wages, VOTE YES. If you want
your wages to continue to keep up
with inflation, VOTE YES for
union security. If you think that
you can help maintain academic
standards at UBC VOTE YES to
quality of education.

"Hello everyone, would you like to buy a flower?" asked Glen Sanford innocently. Arnold Hedstrom looked pale. "No. they haven't got to you too," shrieked
Nancy Campbell. Charles Campbell came right behind Sanford. "Would you like to buy one of my books, they really have lovely illustrations," he said. Eric Eg-
gertson looked at Chuck's orange robes and gleaming head. "Won't you get cold in that outfit?" asked the ever practical Brian Jones. "Oh Brian, you just
haven't found the word of God yet and that is why you reveal your cynicism," said the born again Joe Wong. "This is all really weird," said Muriel Oraaisma as
she accepted a candy cane from'a glassy eyed but smiling Julie Wheelwright. Wendy Cummings and Kerry Regier were chanting silently in the corner of the office and Shaffin Shariff was telling the new staffers about the wonderful new Way he had found through an evangelical Me. Dave Fraser and Dir* Sion said
they were off for a wonderful weekend at a training seminar at a place that was like a commune but waan't really. Scott McDonald said he'd aeen this kind of

presence of the USS Ranger in Vancouver harbor during UN Disarmament Week, but the line of attack
taken by Lee Fraser was very, very
weak. Fraser must be overly sensitive if not paranoid to think that
the invitation to a cocktail party to
meet officers of the Ranger aboard
the HMCS Kootenay was sleazy.
"Dear ladies" (which was the only part of the invitation that the article specifically quoted) is not, to
my mind a particularly sleazy expression. Furthermore, it comes as
no surprise to me that since most, if
not all, of the officers were men
they invited female but not male
students to the party. Is it surprising
that nice young navy officers might
want to meet young intelligent
female   students   for,   as   Sharon
Bowd called it "a chance to go out
and have a good time, a party."
If the officers had wanted to meet
sleazy women, to use Fraser's term,
I am sure they would not have
bothered to look as far as the
university. It is my opinion that
Fraser's indignation is unfounded
and her or The Ubyssey, in their
eagerness for news, have tried to
make a mountain out of a mole hill.
If Fraser does not think the Ranger
should be here then by all means
protest or boycott the cocktail party
but don't make the invitation into
anything more than it apparently
was — a perfectly legitimate desire
by young officers to meet intelligent
young ladies for a social evening.

Canadian faces second class citizenship
It was not until the election of the
University Endowment Lands
representative for the Greater Vancouver Regional District on Nov. 21
that I had the unpleasant surprise of
discovering that I was only a
second-class Canadian citizen.
Originally from France, I
thought I had become a full fledged
Canadian six years ago, after an official naturalization ceremony. I
must say that on that day I was very
moved and no doubt prouder than
many Canadians to be part of a
country that I had chosen by
choice. At last I was going to be
able to participate in Canadian
politics and feel responsible, thanks
to the new right to vote which was
conferred upon me by my citizenship. I can still feel the tears in my
eyes as I sang O Canada beside the
other new Canadians who were just
as moved as myself. This patriotic
metamorphosis occurred in Montreal! I must admit that no incident
in Quebec has ever made me feel
that my Canadian citizenship was
any different than those born in this
country, especially with regards to
my civil rights. To my dismay, this
beautiful dream was crushed Saturday evening.
Being proud to exercise my rights
as a citizen, I went to the polling
booth at the University Hill
Elementary School. It was the
closest one to my home and the
school my son attends; another
reason for not going elsewhere. My
husband and I had decided to vote
before going to see a film presented
by the UBC film society at 7 p.m.
At the entrance of the voting hall
sat two election officers who asked
us to go to one of the many tables in
front of us because we were not on
the  electoral  list.   We  hurried  to
comply since it was already 20
minutes to seven. It was at this
point that all of my problems
began. To save minutes, we went at
the same time to two officials sitting
beside each other. We answered the
same questions, with the same
answers, at the same time.
Everything seemed fine until the'
question which completely blocked
the machine was asked: "Were you
born in Canada?". While my husband was answering "yes", because
he was fortunate enough to be born
in New Brunswick, I answered
honestly "no." The official stopped dead in her writings to announce to me that if this was the
case, I must produce a paper proving my Canadian citizenship. I
therefore asked why they did not
ask for proof of my husband's birth
place and was surprised to learn
that they believed his word since he
signed at the bottom of his declaration that everything he said was
true. I was supposed to sign the
same declaration, but they couldn't
take my word since my mother had
not chosen Canada for her delivery
room. What a joke! I began to
worry about how I was going to
prove my sex if they would not take
my word. My anger was
unmeasurable. The longer 1 tried to
discuss and convince the electoral
officer, the harder 1 banged my
head against the wall of the so called "rules". Remembering a French
proverb, "It is better to turn to God
rather than the saints", I decided to
discuss my problem with ;he head
electoral officer whose apparent
good naturedness reassured me in
advance. Unfortunately, he was
twice as stubborn and as enslaved
by the law as his employees. He
repeated, "I am sorry, there is no
Conservatives urge fee protest
According to the B.C. ministry of
finance, a shift in spending
priorities in the November federal
budget has resulted in a $91 million
decrease in federal contributions to
post-secondary education financing
in B.C. This could result in an
average increase of $379 in tuition
per student next year. This is on top
of the regular increases the university slaps us with annually. Furthermore, these federal cuts will keep
growing for the next five years!
It is obvious from the budget that
the Liberals in Ottawa don't rate
education as a very high priority.
They are unconcerned about the accessibility to education or the quality of education.
On Friday, Nov. 27th, noon SUB
207, students have a chance to show
their concern over the implications
of the federal budget. Chuck Cook,
member of parliament for North
Vancouver-Burnaby will be at UBC
to listen to students and gather their
opinions on the subject of federal
education cuts. He will also briefly
explain the issue in more detail and
offer some potential solutions. The
ultimate goal of Mr. Cook's visit is
to make these education cuts a
number one priority issue in Ottawa. Unfortunately, there are so
many bad things about the federal
budget, certain issues may get overlooked due to the limited amount of
time opposition parties have to propose changes to the budget. Education, however, cannot afford to be
overlooked. Students now have the
chance lo stop these cuts at the
source — the House of Commons
in Ottawa. But now is the time!
I would like to encourage all
students to impress upon Mr. Cook
the    urgency    in    stopping    the
Liberal's "new and improved"
financing priorities. If students get
involved, the federal fee increases
can be stopped. If students don't
take positive action now, we'll all
be paying for it next September.

'Security for TAs'
I would like to remind TAs of the importance of supporting the union
security article during the remaining negotiating sessions. The executive,
the steering committees, and the negotiating teams of the last two years
have put in many precious hours striving for a contract that will improve
the working conditions and wages of TAs. Adding an annual membership
drive to their workload is ludicrous! It is indispensable that the union have,
at the very least, a minimum of security. Don't forget to vote on Dec. 3.

Of all ethical decisions individuals confront in a culture
growing continuously more secular,
few involve greater complexity in
the application of basic principles
than the matter of abortion. The
possibility of abortion has been
know since antiquity. It has also
been widely condemned — as in the
Hippocratic Oath, the touchstone
of medical ethics for centuries.
However, since the second half of
the 20th century many countries
(ours included) have faced an increasing rise in unwanted pregnancies and supplementary liberalized
restrictions on abortion. No
medical knowledge permits man to
define the fetus as anything other
than an individual human life. Yet
the 'infallible' decision (?) of the
U.S. Supreme Court in 1973 (Roe
vs. Wade) affected to disregard life
until live birth, a supposition that is
medically and biologically absurd.
Since then statistics have escalated
to an overwhelming 1,300,000 'elective' abortions per year in the U.S.
alone. In fact, abortions cause more
deaths annually in America than
any other disease.
People cannot assert that there
has been a failure of ethics to keep
pace with science. The ethical prin
ciples were laid down before Christ
by Hippocrates, well in advance of
abortion technology. They have
been affirmed and reaffirmed
countless times since then — that is,
until now.
The most striking feature of today's abortion laws is that it does
not acknowledge that the developing human child has any human
rights: only such as the state is willing to grant. Human life is considered worthy of protection only if
"compelling state interest" is
guaranteed  by what the Supreme

a local level, we intend to, and are
in the process of, making the
bureaucracy on campus aware of
our needs; the most important of
these, at the present time, being the
need for adequate covered parking.
AUS needs writers
The Arts Undergraduate Society
suspects that there are "creative
writers" lurking about on this campus. People who write short stories,
poetry, plays and such.
Well, we feel that we can let these
people lurk in ignominious obscurity no longer, and are going to give
them a chance! A chance to get
published and gain what all writers
crave in the depths of their souls —
legitimacy!
The AUS is publishing a fiction
magazine in late January/early February. We want to get works of fiction from as wide a range of the
university population as possible,
so, if you study, teach or work here,
and write things that you might like
to see in print, please submit your
typed, double-spaced manuscripts
to Buchanan 107, before Jan. 8,

Writers of fiction, submit! Because if you don't, we'll just write
nasty stories and subversive poems
and go through the registrar's list
and put your names on them. Save

in charge of this matter.
There are 250 motorcycles
registered on campus this year. We
feel that it is to the advantage of all,
to form a common interest group.
The advantages of such are
numerous.
There are several other matters
currently under discussion at our
meetings. Do yourself a favor, and
sit in on the next meeting. It will be
held today, Friday Nov. 27, at
noon in SUB 215. You are under no
obligation to join, and bike size is
insignificant. Topics to be discussed
at this meeting include those
previously mentioned and, of particular interest, our first social
event. This event will be held on
Friday, Dec. 4, from 5 to 8 p.m. in
SUB, with prices being a paltry 75

Court calls "capability of meaningful life." So the fact that an unwanted child might force on its
mother "a distressful future" take
precedence over the fundamental
principles of the sanctity of innocent human life, then it is pointless
to speak of medical decisions as
subject to ethical principles.
I personally believe that man was
created and endowed with that
mysterious gift which we call life.
Such life comes into being by an act
which shares in the creative powers
of God Himself (Ps. 139:13).
Evidently I am of the opinion that
the "life and death question"
should belong to the province of
God (Phil. 1:21-24).
My point is this — why don't we
go back to that ancient ethic of stop
trying to play God — and presume
that the casualty at an automobile
accident still wants us to fight to
save his life, that the dying grandmother still wants her last words to
be heard by someone, and that the
unwanted child still wants to be
born. Whatever faith we choose to
believe in, we must note that what
has happened to transform legal
and sometimes popular altitudes on
abortion is not a scientific
breakthrough, but an ethical
breakdown that reduces the absolute value of human life to a
relative good that may readily be
forfeited in the quest for
"privacy," "self-expression," or
various other personal goals.
In closing I join the ranks of
Stephen Parker, Brian Farkes and
all the pro-lifers, and wish
everybody at UBC a happy 'birth'
day.

provision for your case under the
law." How is it possible in a country like Canada, made up almost
entirely of citizens who one day or
another must have become Canadian by naturalization? Seeing my
anger, a Mann candidate representative decided to "challenge" my
husband for whom everything had
gone well until then. This meant
that he had to sign a second piece of
paper which said that everything on
the first declaration and had
already been signed, was true. No
verification was done or necessary,
nor justification for the challenge
given when asked. So what was the
purpose of this "challenge:" a
verification or an attempt to
discourage those voters who seemed
to be of the other side from voting?
The film had long since begun when
at last my husband was allowed to
deposit his ballot in the magic box.
Completely furious, I decided to go
home to look for all of my papers to
show the first official what 1 had
already said. This time, after returning, she did not even want to see
my honorable citizenship card and
in giving more credit to my papers
than my word, she baptised me
under a new name because she was
unable to read a marriage certificate. I must admit that I was
relieved when they did not ask me
to prove my sex. After all this, 1
went to another table to finally collect the prized ballot only to be
"challenged," like my husband,
probably to see how long I would
resist because no reasons were given
nor papers examined when offered.
But a citizen by choice has a strong
resistance. I thus voted and we went
to the later film presentation, relieved to have completed our different
rights as Canadian citizens of first
and second class.
This adventure is not an isolated
case but happened this Saturday to
everyone like myself who was not
familiar with the illogicality of the
law. I think that there should absolutely be a change in this law: one
is Canadian or one is not, regardless
of where one is born. The word of
all Canadians under oath should
have equality, so that all Canadians
might have the right to be first-class
citizens, especially on election days.

The Ubyssey welcomes letters
from the university community,
especially those typed triple spaced
on a 70 space line. Letters should be
signed with the author's name,
faculty and year, or position at the
university. Unsigned letters will not
be published. Pseudonyms will be
used if a good reason is given.
The Ubyssey publishes one more
issue before Christmas exams, on
Friday, Dec. 5. The deadline for all
letters for that issue is Tuesday at
noon. No late letters will be accepted.
All you campus groups with
events taking place after Dec. 5 and
before January, don't say we didn't
warn you.
The paper staff have found
themselves under severe space constraints, and have edited numerous
letters for length. We regret any loss
of quality to these letters, but will
continue to reserve the right to edit
for brevity, taste and legality.
Several letters have arrived with
warnings that theirs could not be
edited for length. Our policy is to
edit any letter for length if
necessary; we could not operate efficiently without this policy. Page 14

Crowing places,
The children shown above are playing on what used to be
a tailing pond near Salmo, B.C.
Tailing ponds are found near most mines. They hold the
sand-like tailing —the result of grinding rock down to a
size small enough to release the mineral—and help to
protect the environment by depositing the sand in one
small area. They also collect water for use again and again
in the concentrator.
The tailing was originally mined from many feet below the
surface and contained no plant nutrients. But the thick
cover of grass shown in the photo resulted after Placer applied selected seeds and booster applications of fertilizer.
Other mines in the Placer Group have found that, with the
proper application methods, grass can thrive on tailing,
rock dumps and other areas previously used in mining
operations.
Mines need land to produce the metals and minerals we
all use —but they also respect the environment.

Broadbent Says
Stay Out Of
Latin America
HAMILTON (CUP) — The
United States must accept the
popular demand for democratic
socialism in Latin America, or face
a rising tide of radical marxism,
says federal NDP leader Ed Broadbent.
"They must accept the right of
Central America to shape their own
destiny," he said. "If that proves to
be something (to the political) left
of the Republican party, perhaps it
is the Republican party that is out
of step with historical destiny."
Broadbent was speaking at the
annual SHARE rich-poor dinner
held recently in Hamilton.
Broadbent was in El Salvador
earlier this year as a representative
of Socialist International, which offered to mediate a peaceful settlement between warring government
and liberation forces.
Broadbent said the liberation
forces were willing to negotiate a
peaceful settlement, but the government wished the war to continue.
The violence and fear "ensures that
those with power and wealth maintain it in a undemocratic fashion,"
he said.
Salvadorean church officials told
him that 90 per cent of the killing
was done by forces connected with
the government or the military. The
total number of casualties the country has suffered comprise a greater
proportion of its population than
those suffered by Canada in all of
World War II.
Broadbent stated that if a settlement were to take place, it would
have to happen in Washington, "if
the U.S. did not prop up the Duarte
regime by military means, a
negotiated settlement would be
found."
Meanwhile, UBC students are in
the midst of a week of solidarity
with Central America.
The week concludes today at
noon when El Salvadorian student
Raul Pineda speaks in the SUB
auditorium. Today is also the anniversary of the last public appearance of the Democratic Revolutionary Front (FDR) in El Salvador.
At a press conference in San
Salvador, the nation's capital city,
the FDR held a news conference. It
was interrupted by the military,
which rounded up and killed seven
FDR leaders.
There willl be a moment of
silence during Pineda's presentation, which includes a slide show
and question and answers.
Universities Need
Public Support
The public views universities as
"elitist, pampered, and irrelevant,"
Canadian Association of University
Teachers representative James
Foulks said Thursday.
He told 50 people in Buchanan
104 the public must be given "a
wider appreciation of universities
and their contribution to the
economy, industry, and culture."
Foulks was one of four speakers
at a cutbacks forum sponsored by
the Students for an Accessible
Education.
Mike Miller, a Canadian Federation of Students representative said
public support is required to have
an impact on funding for post
secondary education. He said there
must be a concerted effort to
change the public's "misinformation" concerning universities.
"The worst thing is for the
government to make a unilateral
decision on cutbacks based on some
accounting principle," said
English professor Bruce Grenberg.
He fears this will mean universities will become more job-
oriented. That sort of "dinosaur
thinking" would be like "cutting
the roots of a plant hoping that
flowers will still bloom."
Board   of  Governors   member
Hugh Greenwood said the board
has as yet "no official point of view
on job training versus intellectual
development."
SAE chair Paul Yaskowich said a
board base of support with faculty,
staff, students, and the administration working together is required,
not Doug Kenny's form of "quiet
diplomacy."
At the end of the forum a former
SAE member, Garnet Colly,
challenged the effectiveness of
SAE's cutbacks efforts. Yaskowich
called Colly an "example of the
bickering that goes on instead of
working together."

CONTEMPLATING LIFE, students discuss forming frisbee throwing religion, after learning of numerous tax advantages involved in being able to deduct everything. Group eventually broke into factions, one going to sell
flowers on downtown street corners, while other group went to check out Moonies. Group members were last

Game plan for Shrum: get ripped
Here is the plan: go to the Pit, get
cracked out of your little mind,
catch one of the buses down to Empire stadium, sneak your bottle in,
find the right side and act silly. Or,
if you are no fun, you can stay
home and study and listen to the
Shrum Bowl on CITR.
This Saturday night at 8 p.m. the
UBC Thunderbird football team
will host the Simon Fraser Clansmen in the United Way Shrum
Bowl. And although it is just an exhibition game, both teams consider
it the most important game of the
year.
UBC has had a very successful
year in the Western Intercollegiate
football league but a loss in the
Shrum Bowl would change the season from successful to so-so. Likewise it would salvage Simon
Fraser's disastrous year in the Na
tional Association of Intercollegiate
Athletics.
The key to the game for UBC will
be how long its offense can keep the
ball. UBC's passing game at best is
average and the running is handled
by Glen Steele who is still nursing a
sore ankle.
(sports)
UBC's defense is very strong, but
may not be able to cope if the offense does not eat up yardage and
the clock. SFU's offense is pass oriented and given enough time it can
hurt you.
At a luncheon given to promote
the Shrum Bowl, several SFU players were both envious and critical of
the success and media attention
UBC and its strong running back
Steele received. The Clan players
went out of the way to try and point
out that they are in a tougher
league.
They also denied receiving any
scholarship money even though 30
of the 53 players on the SFU football program are from outside B.C.
This denial was a simple lie because
the SFU administration acknowledges the grants and that is why
SFU does not compete in any Canadian leagues.
The SFU players were jealous because Steele was receiving the majority of the interviews with the
press and every time he passed them
on his way to another they would
snicker among themselves about his
crucial fumble in the playoff loss to
Alberta. Be there — aloha.
All Night
Library
Simon Fraser University's library
will be pulling five all-nighters with
students before Christmas exams
this year.
SFU librarian Ted Dobb said
Monday the library will be open 24
hours a day from Nov. 30 to Dec. 5.
If response to those hours is good,
the library will set those hours for
the week before each exam period.
"Having been a student myself, I
know what it's like before exams,"
he said, adding that students often
become "night people" before their
exams.
He said the university's student
services building will also be open
during that period so students will
be able to buy coffee and food
while they study.
He said the 24 hour library is a
novel approach. "Some people
think it's an odd idea, but I don't
think so myself."
The move to 24 hour opening will
cost the library about $900, Dobb
said. He added if 250 students per
night make use of the service, that
will amount to a net cost of less
than $1 per student.
"It doesn't cost that much,"
Dobb said.
He said the library's math room,
the periodical reading room and the
reserve book room won't be open
the extra hours.
UBC acting librarian Doug
Mclnnes, when told of the SFU
plan, said opening UBC's main lib
rary for extended hours would be
difficult because of staff required,
but he added such a plan could be
possible at Sedgewick library.
"Extended hours before exams
would be a useful thing to do," said
Mclnnes, adding that he will watch
the SFU experiment.
He said studying for exams might
be made easier if the university
simply provided more study space.
Newspaper
Printing Again
WINNIPEG (CUP) — In less
than 10 minutes, the University of
Manitoba Students Union was forced to resume printing the engim*er-
ing students' controvesial
newspaper, the Red Lion, at a
special general meeting Wednesday.
At the meeting called by
engineering senior stick Erik Tatar-
chuk, a large audience composed
mostly of engineering students
quickly voted to reverse the
council's Oct. 27 decision to stop
the UMSU printship from printing
the Red Lion.
"I'm disappointed that the motion passed," said UMSU president
Tim Rigby, adding that the meeting
was "overwhelmed by engineers."
(An estimated 70 per cent of the 509
students at the meeting were from
engineering).
But Tatarchuk told reporters he
was pleased with the results.
"Engineers do take a lot of interest
in student government," he said.
The entire meeting took 23
minutes, with about seven minutes
spent discussing the Red Lion. Only
two speakers, both from engineering, spoke before the question was
called and a vote forced.
But Robinson felt the meeting
was a railroad, and intends to call
for a referendum on the issue.
"This showed how well our
democracy works on campus," he
said. "The engineers could have
totally taken over and run UMSU
completely."
Council originally voted overwhelmingly in favor of stopping the
UMSU printship from publishing
the Red Lion, saying the paper is
sexist, demeaning to men and
women, and possibly libellous.

Rugby
The first team has two big games
coming up. On Saturday at 2:30
p.m. UBC will be playing Kats at
either Camosun park or in
Thunderbird stadium depending if
the parks board closes the fields.
The other game is against the Vancouver Reps on Wednesday at
Thunderbird stadium starting at 8
p.m.
Volleyball
Once again Sandy Silver the
women's volleyball coach is mad at
The Ubyssey. She demanded that
the paper drop all of these tirades
about budget cuts and tuition fees
and stress the good news like her
team's tournament this weekend.
The tournament starts tonight
and continues all day tomorrow at
War Memorial gym. The competition will include a Chimos team
with six players from the Canadian
1976 Olympic squad. And if that
isn't good news, what is.
Soccer
The women's soccer team will
host Titans Sunday on McGinnis
field at 10 a.m.
Basketball
The men's and women's teams
will be in Victoria to play the Vikings and Vikettes. Both of the Victoria teams are the current Canadian champions and have been for
two years.
Last year the UBC men split their
games with UVic while the UBC
women dropped all four to the
Vikettes who have only lost nine of
the last 60 games. The UBC men are
1-1 in league play so far this year
and the women are 0-4. The UVic
men are 2-0 and the women are 4-0.
Swimming
The UBC swim team will also be
in Victoria to play UVic. The meet
gets underway Saturday at 1 p.m.
Hockey
The Thunderbirds take a 1-5
record into Saskatchewan for two
games this weekend. The University
of Saskatchewan took two games
off the 'Birds last weekend at UBC.
Tennis
The   men's   team   will   host
Portland State this Saturday from
noon to 5 p.m.

The waterpolo team will be in Edmonton this weekend to compete in
the   Canada   West   Universities

Introducing the new hamburger from the DAIRY QUEEN
BRAZIER store. In a new "six to a pound" size that really
gives you some meat for your money. Instead of a banquet of
bun.
You see, while other burger chains
get as many as ten hamburgers from a
pound of beef, we get only six. And
that gives you "more burger than
bun." A burger that's tender,
deliciously-cooked. Every time. The

Paper revolt
Attention all Ubysseyers! Staff
meeting today at 2:30 in the infamous office. Main topics on the

in that order. But be warned, it's at

With the state everywhere, this is
bound to be a dangerous mission. If
we get through it, there's another
event worth investigating at 4:30
p.m. Bill Tieleman will give a seminar on Investigative Journalism.
That one's in the subversive den,
too, and is open to everybody, not
just Ubyssey staffers (wowl).
Don't go away yet. After that
there is a B.C. caucus for the upcoming CUP conference. I suspect
all staffers are urged to attend this
one too, especially the delegates.
But that's not all for today; this sure
is a busy one. Friday night party at
Deb's — bring your own drugs.
Radical words
Hey great, more about Central
America. What's going on, is UBC
actually becoming concerned or,
dare I say it, radical? Doesn't say
what the slant will be, just that the
topic is Nicaragua. Hear Doug Sanders Wednesday at noon in the Law
