It's business as usual
for UBC on day of protest
By TED DA V»
UBC will remain open as usual

government's anti-inflation board
Indications are that many of the
university's unionized employees

Ken Andrews, president of local
116 of the Canadian Union of Public-
Employees said Tuesday the
response of the CUPE member?
has been "mixed", but he hopes
many;members will support-fflr
strike and attend the down^awtt
rallies.
Andrews said so far as he knew*
there will be no pickets of union
demonstrations on campus But
this may be changed at * CUPfe
general meeting tonight.
Reactions of members of the
Association of University and
College Employees and of the
Office and Technical Employees
Union indicate that many clerical
and office workers on campus will
remain on the job, allowing the
university to operate at close to
normal efficiency.
Administration spokesman Al
Hunter said Tuesday the administration has no plans to deal
with any possible shortage of labor
that may occur. He said that staff
members will just fill in for those
staying off work, and that the
administration anticipated no
trouble.
CUPE members include heating
engineers in physical plant,
campus security patrolmen,
technicians, maintenance and
trades people, food service employees and some health service
and clerical employees.
Andrews expects good support
from the heating engineers and
those members working in. the
student residences, and from
security patrolmen but less from
those in the other areas.
If the heating engineers stay
away, campus. buildings will be

UBC dean, of women Margaret
Fulton Friday slammed the
university administration for not
providing enough support for
women's groups on campus.
Fulton said the university is less
enthusiastic this year about supporting women's groups at UBC
because international women's
year is over.
The administration's attitude is
"Alright girls, you've had your
year. Now it's time to get back to
the kitchen, barefoot and
pregnant," she said.
"The administration and vice-
president Erich Vogt in particular
must recognize the necessity of the
elimination of sex stereotyping,
must encourage women to expand
their educational horizons and
must provide support to women
until they have equal representation in student affairs."
Fulton said budget cutbacks
which have hit the whole university
have forced the dean of women's
office to cut back on its activities.
But she refused to say how much
money the office is receiving
compared ta last year.
"Making public statements of
this nature could inflame the administration and result in further
cutbacks in my budget next year."
Fulton said the administration
should do more to encourage
women to enter traditionally male
dominated faculties such as
engineering, science and forestry.
"It takes a strong minded
women to go into applied science or
forestry for example. Although this
McGeer angers UVic pres
VICTORIA (CUP) — Education minister Pat
McGeer failed Tuesday to placate an angry
University of Victoria administration president when
he visited UVic to discuss cutbacks of the university's
capital spending.
And his flippant attitude after a stormy meeting
with UVic president Howard Petch angered students
and faculty who had hoped McGeer would discuss the
issue with them.
UVic administrators, faculty and students are
upset because the B.C. Universities Council has
blocked construction of a music building, a new
theatre building and more classroom space.
A member of UVic's board of governors has
claimed the council is trying to usurp board functions
by blocking construction of specific projects.
Petch last week said he is "furious" at the council
for its actions and hinted he is willing to go to court to
overrule it. Both the UVic senate and board of
governors have given Petch unanimous support.
McGeer, accompanied by his executive assistant
and two education department officials, met with
UVic administrators for almost an hour and a half,
but, according to Petch, only talked business for 10
minutes. .
Asked after the meeting if he would go against the
council's recommendations, McGeer said "it would
be wrong for a minister to undercut the intent of the
legislation."
"In fact, I'm prevented from doing so by the
legislation," he said.
McGeer refused to comment on Petch's charge that
the council is acting outside the provision of the
Universities Act. "That's something you'd have to
take up with the council," he said.
Petch was visibly angry after the meeting, during
which there was shouting that could be heard by
reporters waiting outside the closed doors.
"It was a very unsatisfactory meeting," he said.
'We finished lunch and he (McGeer) said weonly had
10 minutes. If he'd told us earlier, we could have
talked through lunch.
"I've no idea what he's going to do. We weren't able
to press our case," Petch said. "He told us he might
be able to give us some more time on Thursday."
Dozens of UVic music students in their cramped
classroom space across campus jammed offices,
liallways and even washrooms and noisily practiced
their instruments to demonstrate their need for more
space.
McGeer refused to meet with the students,
however, and instead asked "Do they sing in the bath
here too?" He grinned and refused further comment.

Women students are concentrated in the faculty of arts, fine
arts, home economics and nursing
and the administration has done
little to encourage them to enter
other fields of study.
And more women should be
encouraged to enter graduate
school, Fulton said.
"There is a definite need for
more women in grad studies and at
senior faculty and administration
levels. A greater ;^orts^ojil^^

But Vogt said Fulton should be
fully aware of the committees that
were set up to study women on
campus since she sits on the dean's
committee that discusses the
setting up of committees.
When told of the Fulton's charge
that she was not consulted about
the committees Vogt said: "I don't
think that's correct. There must be
some misunderstanding on her
part."
The administration should
provide more support for groups at
UBC that aim toimprove the status
of women at the university, Fulton
said.
"It will be a long while before
there is a change in attitudes and
behaviors that even women conform and submit to. Until this
change comes women need support.
"The administration should be
prepared to give that support,
especially when male dominated
student organizations such as the
SRA (student representative
assembly) refuse to do so."
Two weeks ago the SRA decided

not .to fund a women's group that
had occupied an office in SUB since
1971.
Fulton said, "I would like to see
the AMS reinstate the women's
office as a sort of umbrella office
until it is no longer needed. That
will be when there is total integration and women are confident
enough to compete with men."
She said in order to achieve this
and other support, women at UBC
must appeal to Vogt and make him
aware of their needs.
She said she realizes there isnot
much money available for new
programs but the administration
should at least make improving the
lot of women top priority. "It
should be more conscious of
university women's needs," she
said.
Vogt said Tuesday he doesn't
know much about the women's
committee that was denied space
in SUB. But he said the administration should not be funding
what he called student clubs
because that is the responsibility of
the Alma Mater Society.
Vogt said he would like to see
increased funding for studying the
status of women at UBC, providing
money is available.
"Women on this campus have a
lot of problems. It will be a long
time before this situation is
changed .However much more is
needed than studies. There should
be education of the young — a
great deal of talk is necessary to
change the attitudes of people
about women," Vogt said.     >
Fulton said an effort must be
made to provide better opportunities for women at UBC.
"We need more programs to
increase people's awareness of the
changing status of women. Such
programs might include research
into the changing roles of women,
more women's studies, speakers,
seminars and conferences."
Fulton said since she became
dean of women in 1974 she has-
sometimes had to fight the administration in her efforts to improve the status of women.
"Pressure should be put on the
vice-president of student affairs
(Vogt) to provide more support
and funding for the women of
UBC."
Fulton said the dean of women's
office should be a centre for UBC
women but the office doesn't have
enough money to fulfill that function this year.
She said if the office was as well
funded as it was last year it could
become a women's resource
centre.
Women at UBC need to get more
involved in decision making bodies
at UBC, Fulton said.
But most UBC women students
lack the confidence to run for
positions on the SRA senate and
other areas where students are
represented, she said.

South African politician jeored
About 60 angry demonstrators
tried to prevent a speech at UBC
Tuesday by Harry Schwarz, white
South African politician.
Waving placards and chanting
slogans the group, calling itself the
committee to support the just
struggle of the Azanian people,
drowned out Schwarz's speech to
about 300 people in Totem Park
ballroom.
The demonstrators tried to halt
Schwarz's speech about peaceful
change in South Africa with chants
like "fascists have no right to
speak" and "go home."
The cqmmittee says Schwarz, a
member of parliament for the
South African Progressive Reform
Party, should not be allowed to
speak at UBC because he
represents imperialist powers
which are trying to retain white
supremacy and race segregation in
South Africa.
Despite the constant disruption
from the demonstrators Schwarz
managed to finish his speech in
about an hour, although many in
the ballroom could not hear what
he was saying.
He interrupted his speech
several times io answer taunts
from the demonstrators. He called
them "political cowards who don't
want to hear.the other point of
view."
"I had to fight the fascists in the
last war and I don't think you know
what fascism means," Schwarz
said when demonstrators called
him a fascist.
When he finished his speech Schwarz asked the audience if they
had any questions but was drowned
out by boos and chants of "don't
argue with fascists."
The audience booed the
demonstrators several times but
there was no attempt to stop the
disruption.
Schwarz and his party advocate
an end to apartheid and a gradual
transition to black majority rule in
South Africa.
But Dave Fuller, a spokesman
for the demonstrators committee,
said in an interview before the
demonstration that Schwarz only
wants blacks in government who
will answer to imperialist powers
with economic interests in South
Africa, such as Britain and the U.S.
"I don't believe that Schwarz is
really against apartheid," Fuller
said.
■ What blacks in South Africa need
is total liberation from domestic
and foreign imperialists, he said.
"Schwarz says that the current
demonstrations in South Africa are
in protest of the apartheid system.
"This is just a side issue that has
been blown out of proportion by the
imperialists. What is really happening is the struggle of the
Azanian people for complete
national liberation from the
colonialist powers," he said.
AMS opposes
bus cutbacks
By STEVE HOWARD
The Alma Mater Society is
protesting to city council major
changes in the operation of the
Forty-first and Forty-ninth buses
which will come into effect Oct. 29.
The AMS is opposed to reduction
of service on the Forty-ninth route,
which services southern Vancouver, Moe Sihota, AMS external
affairs officer, said Tuesday.
Even though there will be an
increase in service on the Forty-
first route, passengers going to
UBC on the Forty-ninth bus will
now have to transfer at the Dunbar
Loop, instead of continuing nonstop to UBC, Sihota said.
The AMS has printed a leaflet
that charges Hydro operates with
little public input.
The public does not know
whether or not there is an overall
plan for buses in the south Vancouver area and for service to
UBC, the leaflet says. The AMS
urges that public meetings be held
and a plan for all types of transit in
Vancouver be presented to voters
for approval.
Vancouver city council last week
approved a crosstown bus service
to UBC, but the proposed service is
low on B.C. Hydro's list of
priorities, a Hydro spokesman has
indicated.
The proposed route goes from
UBC via Sixteenth, Crown, King
Edward, Kingsway, Slocan,
Twenty-ninth and Moscrop to
Burnaby municipal hall.
Council has decided a new bus
line is needed to service the area
between the two major cross-
town routes on Broadway and
Forty-first.

Hacksawed iron bars a story make
Canadian University Press
The editor of Douglas College's
student newspaper the Other Press
had a rude awakening early
Saturday when he was summoned
to interview three escaped convicts.
The three, Tom Toten, Cliff
Abigosis, and Dennis Wilson, had
spent three days sawing through
the iron bars of a window facing
the exercise yard at the Lower
Mainland Regional Correctional
Centre (Oakalla) before they
escaped Friday night.
They wound up in the yard of a
Burnaby resident less than a mile
from the prison. The startled
resident invited the trio in for tea.
before he realized they were
escapees, and then telephoned
Other Press editor Terry Glavin.
Glavin arrived at the resident's
home and conducted a brief interview before the three men left in
the company of an accomplice they
called on the telephone. Glavin
informed Burnaby RCMP of the:
incident later Saturday, but has
since refused to reveal the identity
of the Burnaby resident.
Glavin said Tuesday he found the
escapees polite and well spoken.
"They were pretty nervous," he
said. "They realized they had us at
an advantage while they were
there and knew we had them at an
advantage wh^n they left."
The three used no force and
made no threats during the interview and were mainly interested in enjoying their freedom,
Glavin said.
"They were really happy to be
out," he said.
Totten, awaiting trial on two
counts of armed robbery, told
Glavin they had escaped because
of "terrible" conditions in Okaalla.
He claimed he was being "confined
illegally" and that no bail had been
set at his preliminary hearing.
Wilson was in Oakalla awaiting
trial on charges resulting from a
February hostage-taking incident
at Victoria's Wilkinson Road jail.
He is the brother of Claire
Wilson, who was involved in the
June, 1975 hostage taking at the
B.C. Penitentiary, which ended
when Pen guards stormed the
prisoners' stronghold and shot and
killed classifications officer Mary
Steinhauser, one of the hostages.
Wilson said that during the three
days it took to saw through the bars
on the window more than 100 inmates watched, "but there wasn't
a pigeon among them."
(Three of the watching inmates,
however, did take advantage of
Wilson's, Totten's and Abigosis'
labors by following their escape
route after they left. One of the
latter escapees, William Hay,
turned himself into Coquitlam
RCMP Sunday. The other two,
Shing Kwan and Gavin Larocque,
are still at large).
Wilson .told Glavin they had
broken the glass in the barred
escape window the night before
they fled, but claimed guards on
duty reacted only by saying "if
they want to bust their own windows and freeze this winter, they
can go right ahead."
Toten told Glavin there was no
way authorities would get him
back in prison. "I don't intend to
get busted," he said.
However, both Totten and Wilson
are back in custody. Saanich police
arrested the pair early Tuesday
morning and they will appear in
court today charged with
possession of stolen property,
impaired driving and possession of
marijuana.
Abigosis was awaiting trial at
Oakalla for walking away from the
Maple Ridge work camp, where he
was serving time for a robbery
conviction. He was still at large
late Tuesday.
Glavin said he found Abigosis to
be the quietest of the trio. "He
didn't trust me as much as the
others," he said. Both Wilson and
Totten were "friendly, open and
honest," Glavin said.
"I can't see how anyone could
consider them dangerous as individuals," he said.
Glavin said none of the three
asked for money or weapons and
left behind a knife that was lying on
a coffee table in the Burnaby
resident's living room. "They did
ask to use the bathroom," he said.
Glavin said he ■ isn't worried'
about his refusal to tell police who
the Burnaby resident is. "They
(RCMP) have apparently accepted
this," he said. "They weren't
really interested."
vice as desirable but we haven't
got the resources," B.C. Hydro
spokesman Harry Atterton said.
"It's not high on our list of
priorities. There's no indication
that we will be able to bring it in in
the near future."
Atterton said more men,
equipment and funding will be
needed before the King Edward
bus service is established.
The Forty-first route to UBC will
be extended and will run more
frequently Monday to Saturday.
Buses will run every five minutes
in rush hour, every 7.5 minutes
during the- day and every 10
minutes at night.
Fewer UBC
students
seek loans
By JANET NICOL
Fewer people applied for student
loans this year than iast, financial
aid officer. Byron Hender said
Tuesday.
He estimated a 10 per cent
decrease in loan applications but
said the high level of summer
unemployment did not effect
students who applied for loans.
"My own feeling is that the
students we were seeing didn't
have a ba6* time," he said.
But many students were unable
to apply for loans because they
were not working this summer,
according to B.C. Students'
Federation spokesman Stew
Savard.
Savard said the BCSF received
many complaints from students
who were unable to apply for loans
because their savings did not meet
the loan requirements.
Savard also said women are at a
further disadvantage because they
earn less money than men, yet are
subject to the same loan restrictions.
As well, Savard said, the lesser
amount of grant money has
deterred students from applying.
The initial loan this year is $600 and
the remaining money available is
50 per cent loan and 50 per cent
grant. Last year the initial loan
was $300 which allowed for a larger
grant.
Students receive about $200 more
than last year, which Hender attributes to the higher cost of living.
. He said monthly room and board
now averages at $275, up from $250
last year.
Textbook costs have gone up
about 10 per cent. Although tuition
fees have, remained stable, there
will be problems with loans next
year, Hender said, if fees go up.
Of the 6,000 students who have
received loans, 85 per cent have
salaried parents and most of them
earn less than $25,000 a year,
Hender said. Page 4

Controls not only issue
in Oct. 14 day of protest
In May, representatives of
most Canadian trade unions
voted almost unanimously to
mandate the Canadian Labor
Congress to call a general
strike when and if the CLC
thought one necessary.
On Aug. 6, the CLC
executive used that mandate
to call a one-day general
strike protesting wage and
price controls for Oct. 14,
the first anniversary of the
controls.
It was a good idea but
something went wrong
between then and now. Not
only did business and
government campaign
actively against the strike;
the labor movement itself did
a terrible job selling it to
Canadians.
So the Thursday strike has
had lots of bad publicity
which.has obscured the fact
that yes, the strike is worth
supporting.
Not even economists will
agree on whether wage and
price controls are desirable.
But you don't have to be an
economist to see these ones
aren't working. They are, in
effect, wage controls.
They've destroyed
collective bargaining and
made the labor scene even
more tense and strike-prone
than before.
They don't control the
income of people who live
off profits rather than wages
and salaries.
And they don't control
prices of such things as
> transportation, oil and
gasoline, housing and other
essentials the government
decided were outside the
jurisdiction of the
Anti-Inflation Board.
But wage and price
controls are not the only
issue in the strike. There are
reasons for supporting the
strike that have nothing to
do with wage and price
controls.
It's a bit of a cliche that
the people run the country
on election days. But
between     elections,     we're
nobody — and that isn't so
funny.
Government policies have
always been determined by
groups and individuals able
to apply pressure to the
government. Since the
government will do almost
anything that will guarantee
winning elections, and
money is one thing needed
these days to win elections,
money goes a lot further
than popular support.
That's why business and
industry are always so much
more satisfied with
governments than the
common folk — business and
industry, with their financial
clout, have called most of the
shots.
Labor unions are powerful
only in a very limited sense.
They are powerful in that
they can demand excellent
living standards (in the form
of high wages) for individual
members. But labor hasn't
been able to look after the
long-term interests of all its
members.
Why not? Because labor
has never been able to apply
any kind of pressure on any
government. All labor has
been able to do is whine to
governments that things
should be done in
such-and-such a way.
Governments can afford to
ignore them: labor hasn't
been able to organize its
membership to apply
pressure on governments,
even at election times.
Business is powerful,
simply because it, has been
able to organize its resources
— money — and apply where
needed. Labor is in reality
weak because it has never
been able to organize its resources — people — and apply
pressure on government.
It's our own fault for
never having done that
organizing; we've let another
group with its own special
interests look after our
interests, something they'll
do only when our interests
don't clash with theirs.
Why is one interest group,

Ralph Maurer slaved, Ted Davis labored and Heather Walker did her job well.
Jan Nicol tolled while Chris Grinor threw all his weight Into his work and
Paul Vanderham worked up a sweat. Verne McDonald strained at his
typewriter as Doug Rushton put his hard nose to the grindstone. Earning
- their daily bread were Matt King, Doug Field, Paul Wilson and Bob Krleger.'
Surviving off the sweat of their brows were Lambert Loh, Steve Howard,
Marcus Gee, Shane McCune and Deb van der Gracht. And striving toward
perfection were Dave Fraser, David Morton, Merrilee Robson, Bruce Baugh,
Jean Randall and Maureen Curtis.
labor,   better  than  another,
business?
Simple. No matter how
benevolent the business
'sector is, they'll never do
exactly what the majority of
people want because they are
not   democratically   run.   In
judgement of its members.
Here's how the strike might
have been organized:
The CLC decides at its
convention to organize a
strike; individual union
leaders go back to their
members, explain the issues
VJeU-...0r4CE- A^AinI WE'VE
PASSED ANOTrfeR. Cfc\9TS
DAy - -. OhlSCATHEP-
the labor movement, there is
that potential.
Unions are organized
along democratic principles,
and if the members watch
their leaders, they actually
function that way. Unions
are far from perfect, and
they represent less than 50
per cent of the work force (a
percentage that continues to
grow, though) but at least
there is that potential which
business does not have.
Why are business and
government out to discredit
Thursday's protest? Business,
because of the reasons
outlined above: it simply
isn't in their interest to have
another group in the position
to apply pressure to the
government. Government,
because it sees wage and
priqe controls and their own
popularity as the issues of
the strike, and the Liberal
party is fighting for its
political life.
What has labor . done
wrong? Its leadership got
snotty and underestimated
the intelligence and
and let the membership
decide whether they agree
with their leaders. If the
strike was at all justified, the
membership would recognize
this and support it.
To their credit, many
unions worked this way. At
UBC, the Canadian Union of
Public Employees and the
Association of University and
College Employees decided
at membership meetings.
Both supported the strike in
principle but left it up to
individual members whether
to work or march Thursday.
But many unions didn't
do it that way. The
executives decided to let
their membership know what
they were going to do on
Oct. 14. Much of the
backlash against the strike
was from people (who might
have under any other
circumstances supported it)
who didn't like being told
what to do.
Again, all that obscures
the fact that the strike is a
good thing. It's the first
effort in decades to organize
people all across Canada on
one issue.
That, not wage and price
controls, is what this strike is
about. It will be a success if
labor proves it can organize
its members on a national
basis. It will be a "failure —
not just for labor, but for
everybody — if they show
they cannot organize
workers.
If protest organizers prove
it is possible to organize the
Canadian work force,
Canadian politics will be
changed. Having done it
once, it will be easier to do it
again. And Canadians will be
able to protest not only
things to which they are
opposed, they will be able to
demonstrate for things they
want.
We don't want a group
holding a gun to our heads to
win a point; but if some
group is threatening a general
strike to gain their special
interests you know it isn't
the interest of a minority. A
national strike needs mass
support; one won't happen if
it's called on an issue most
people aren't willing to strike
over.
In short, if the strike
succeeds, the Canadian
work force will become a
powerful determinant of
government policy — the
government will think twice
before it does something if
there's a chance that its
action (or lack thereof) is
going to bring on a general
strike.
If the protest fizzles we
are in trouble: A poor strike
turnout would only tell the
Liberals (and other political
organizations) that Canadians
are content to let the
government run things for
them between elections.
They'll stop listening and will
only pay attention during
election campaigns when it's
time to buy our votes.
The business sector has
day-to-day access to
government while people
only enter into things during
elections. Thursday's strike
could be the first step toward
a situation where the average
Canadian is involved in
government decision-making
every day, simply because no
government will be able to
ignore him or her.
That's why we should all
support the protest, whether
we are union or not, whether
we like wage and price
controls or not, whether we
like the Liberals or not.
Don't go to classes. Don't
go to work. Instead, go to
one of the protest rallying
centres — there's a student
rally starting at 8 a.m. at
Sunset Beach. Are you going
to be there? Wednesday, October 13,  1976

Letters
Schiffer
a hypocrite
We could not help but notice the
irony in the story on Rick Murray
in Friday's Ubyssey.
The story indicated that a law
student by the name of Roger
Schiffer was threatening to take
Rick Murray to court if Murray did
not resign as a student board rep.
Schiffer was screaming about the
principle of a non-student
representing students on the
board.
Schiffer should not be one to
scream about principles. As the
Ubyssey story aptly pointed out,
Schiffer is a UBC student. Which
raises an interesting question:
Why in the hell is Schiffer then
sitting as a student rep on the SFU
senate?
Schiffer has been on the SFU
senate all summer and all September with the full knowledge
that he would be attending UBC
law school in the fall. It seems to us
that this situation parallels that of
Murray. Therefore, we respectfully suggest that Schiffer either
stop being so hypocritical, or that
the SFU Student Society initiate
legal proceedings against Schiffer.
Actually, Schiffer's case is a bit
more disturbing than Murray's.
The major problem with replacing
Murray is that it would be difficult
to conduct new board elections at
UBC this fall. However, the tri-
semester system at SFU would
have insured that an election to
replace Schiffer could have been
held during the summer.
Don't get us wrong. We believe
that   non-students   should   not
represent students on the board or
senate. What concerns us is the
hypocrisy displayed by Schiffer.

It is kind of sad to see The
Ubyssey front-page highlighting a
non-issue such as new equipment
in the library, and sadder yet to see
such distorted reporting on a
significant  library   development.
The new machines are not slower
than the old ones and they don't
reject most student cards. Some
cards are rejected, mainly cards
produced for the old machines;
perhaps we should have kept
students in those registration
lineups even longer and replaced
all of the old cards.
The new machines are in fact
much faster than the old, and only
a few locations require the library
card to be reinserted for each book.
This is a procedural limitation to
ensure student assistants don't
charge books to the wrong
borrower. It is also a procedure
which can and likely will be
eliminated.
Other apparent delays do not
relate to the equipment but to

procedures which are largely

There is an illusion of delay
caused mainly by the procedures
and this will be improved.
Meanwhile we are being careful so
as not to screw-up loan records.
Sedgewick library's use of two
turnstiles is not a new practice and
these turnstiles previously
required two staff members; now
there is generally only one, and the
one operator must process books
through the security system, which
is an additional process.
An impression is left that the old
machines were much better, which
is simply not the case. The new
machines provide immediate
improvements to circulation
services and provide a flexibility
for introducing many other improvements in the future.

Dry? Hiss!
In response to Greg Olson's
letter about the lack of functions on
this campus for minors, the arts
undergraduate society would like
to share the experience we had
when we put on a disco without
liquor.
We thought that we should direct
our campaign against apathy at
the new first year arts students.
"Get them involved! Give them
something to do!"
...We tried. We held a free disco
and coffeehouse on Sept. 24. The
music was great, the coffee weak
and the conversation non-existent.
Perhaps fifteen people came and
stayed for a few minutes in the two
hours we kept it going. Many more
came but left as soon as they found
out there was no hquor available.
We rationalized the
fiasco..."Well, we had to give it a
try." We did but where were you
when we needed you Greg? We
have come to the conclusion, sadly,
that functions don't get off the
ground unless there is liquor
around.
We're holding a beer garden in
the Buchanan lounge from 4 p.m.
to 6 p.m. Friday. We'll see then if
liquor can overcome the apathy of
the arts undergrads.
And for all you minors and non-
drinkers—show us a little support
when we try to get you involved in
the "campus scene" and maybe
more groups will notice your
existence and hold functions for
you.

singlehandedly conquering that
oppressor of political hacks, Rick
Murray, but one should ask Roger
Schiffer to curb his ego in the cause
of practicality.
Before Schiffer makes history by
liberating the students of this
campus from the experience and
good judgment of Murray, Schiffer
should remember that in order to
replace him, a general election
must be held.
This small feat requires one
month and encompasses
preparation of voter lists and $4,000
to pay for ballots and their tallying.
The elected student will sit in on
one board of governors meeting
before his term expires.

Robots
I'm not sure what makes UBC
students tick, but whatever it is, it
goes off at 20 minutes past the
hour, every hour.
By means of some remarkable
mechanism, the students in almost
all my classes automatically shut
off all mental functions (such as
they are) at this magic moment.
Does the film you are watching
build to a cathartic climax? Is a
wizened gnome in your seminar
about to explain the meaning of life
and the secret of Caramilk in one
deft stroke? Is the world about to
come to an end?
If so, it had better happen before
a quarter after, or you'll miss it.
There is no telling what cosmic
mysteries might have been
unravelled on this campus, were
they not tost in the din of books
slapping shut and earth shoes
shuffling towards the exits.
Perhaps, as a returning student
scarred by five years in the work
force, I am expecting too much.
But I'm out here spending
ludicrous sums of money in order
to take in as much as I can out of
each class.
It may be inane, but I'm paying
for it, and it pisses me off when a
robot with Pavlovian reflexes cuts
off a speaker in mid-sentence in
order to be out of the classroom
two minutes earlier than
necessary.

Boers and British battle
By DAVE FRASER
The Great Anglo-Boer War
Byron Farwell
Pub. by Fitzhenry and Whiteside
•     Ltd. [1976]
$17.75 454 Pages
History, it has been said, is a
:     great teacher. A sad and painful •
truth, however, is that teachers are
sometimes ignored by their pupils
and lessons quite often must be
learned the hard way. In the Anglo-
m. Boer War of 1899-1901 Britain chose

In his latest offering, The Great
m   Anglo-Boer War, Byron Farwell
f;   contends that Britain could- fca;fee
li''   and should have known from-its
%   involvement  with  South   Africa
since the late 18th century that in
"the Boer s there existed a fierce and
determined pride. This was a race
in possession of a well developed
identity which was accentuated
,   when threatened by outside forces.
iy The toughest battles   are often

,|v; identity   is   so  pronounced, and

y.   the British were routed)  exem-
"    plified the type of struggle which

Britain's failure to respect the
Boers, or even to take them
seriously, resulted in military and
psychological setbacks during the
Anglo-Boer War of 1899-1901. The
empire lost a tremendous amount
of influence and prestige in the
eyes of the world. Eventually,
Britain defeated the Boer
militarily but never conquered his
spirit. The "victory" was a hollow
one.
Farwell's approach to the Anglo-
Boer War of 1899-1901 is essentially
chronological. After a brief
background of Anglo-Boer
relations up to 1899 he immediately
focuses on the early military
engagements of the war. With
assiduous attention to detail he
discusses   each   battle  until  the

Firstly, it is military history.
Farwell dissects each battle in turn
and outlines the various components involved the deployment
of Apposing forces, the type of
assault launched, the numbers of
troops involved, the size and range
of artillery, etc Farwell also takes
great care to show the evolution of

The book can also be seen as
political history You do get a
sense of what the war meant to
England politically both at home
and abroad. In fact many of the
policies which formed the basis of
British actions in the war were the
direct result of what was happening politically in England.
Finally, The Great Anglo-Boer
War is social history and for this
aspect alone the hook is well worth

English military traditions were
never to be forgotten no matter
how adverse conditions became.
The portrait of the Boer which
emerges from Farwell's text is one
of a tough, determined, resourceful
iighter who even Winston Churchill
had to admit "was worth at least

agreements" were made and
honored between opposing forces.
There were even humorous incidents such as the one during
Christmas 1899 when "...the Boers
fired six shells into (the town of)
Ladysmith stuffed with Christmas
pudding instead of powder, and
each was engraved, in bold capital
letters: "WITH THE COMPLIMENTS OF THE SEASON."
The Great Anglo-Boer War is
extremely well researched and
Farwell's treatment of his subject
is anything but superficial. Sfany
of the sources of information are-
primary—diaries, letters, memos,
and dispatches written by actual
participants in the war. This use of
primary source material lends
credibility to the book and in many
instances gives the reader the
feeling of being right there in the
fray-
Farwell possesses that overview
of events which is so essential to
the historian's craft. He fits the
whole Anglo-Boer straggle into a
perspective by pointing out that not
only were thousands of lives lost
but the British failed in the long
run anyway. Hence Ihe absurdity
of the exercise. He also makes it
£lear that without an understanding of the eventsof 1899-
1901 present day South Africa and
its problems are largely incomprehensible.

Serious Allen in Front
By JEAN RANDALL
The Front
Starring:   Woody  Allen,   Hershel
Bernardi, Zero Mostel
At the Odeon
The Front is not really a serious
account of the blacklisting of the
'50's, nor is it Woody Allen's first
serious role, as the billboards and
ad sheets claim. If it proves
anything, it is that Hollywood has a
difficult time coming to grips with
American politics.
The subject of the film is serious,
but it is treated as the basis for a
tragi-comedy, with some slap-stick
broad humour. Since the film was
produced, directed, and acted in by
people who were blacklisted in the
'50's, it indicates that the purpose
for making it was to proclaim their
own cynicism and bitterness
toward the American political
scene.
The acting was, as one might
anticipate, very good, considering
that the actors were portraying life
experiences similar to their own.
Woody Allen, in a fictional role,
plays a poor schmuck, who gets to
pose as a front-man for his screen
writer friends. These people have
been blacklisted, and cannot find
work in their chosen profession.
Allen, as Howard Prince, is por-,
trayed as someone who thinks he is
a street-wise opportunist in a
position to exploit the talent of his
friends. We see him as a loser, who
finally gets sent to jail, not just for
contempt of the House
Unamerican Activities Committee,
but also because he was a bookie.
In fact, the film does not make
clear which charge puts him away.
The film also does not make it
clear that no one was legally sent
to jail for being a communist, since
it was not a crime to be one. The
injustice was that insofar as their
work didn't have anything to do
with their ideology, they were the
victims of discrimination.
Walter Bernstein, the script
writer, obviously felt the absurdity
of the entire situation because the
committee men are depicted as
two-dimensional melodramatic
villains.
The character of Howard Prince
is the only one that is not two-
dimensional. But despite his
inability to talk about his scripts,
the   successful   conning   of   the
people at the studios makes him a
comic character to the audience,
through the suspension of our
disbelief. Prince is an apolitical
figure who does not see the importance of the suffering brought
about by the witchhunt.
The choice of a Woody Allen type
of character as the focal point of a
film supposedly meant to be
serious is questionable. The
humour and warmth of Allen's
role, and his mastery of the loser
style are, however, enjoyable.
There is no depiction of bloody
violence, but a suicide is directly
implied. Frank Sinatra sings If
You're Young At Heart, while a
handcuffed Howard is led off to jail
withhis hands cuffed. Howard is in
the absurd position of losing his
freedom, and at the same time
winning it by having exercised his
free speech, by telling the committee in crude language where to
go.
It might be a bad thing that a
comic spirit pervaded the film,
because it may influence people to
take a nonchalant attitude to the
injustice of discrimination. Certainly, nothing about the film indicates that it will not happen
again.. We all know that various
forms of discrimination afflict
human relations in our society
today.
WOODY ALLEN . .. checkmated by McCarthyism
i\ew twist to cliche story
By MAUREEN CURTIS
The Fantasticks
York Theatre
with Richard Newman,
Claudia Blackwood, and
Bruce Gordon
Until Oct. 23
From its unconventional
beginning, you would hardly guess
that The Fantasticks is a romantic
musical with a theme as old as the
hills. A figure in black tights appears, and shushes the audience,
as the musicians, situated in the
corner of the stage, start to play.
The stage setting consists of no
more than a black box and a ladder
But as the actors begin to move
about, uttering inanities, the story
of a young love,,helped and hindered by parental plans, emerges.
The boy and girl, around whom the
love story is built, are not insane,
merely adolescent. Their silly,
romantic ideas and their self-
confident naivety are familiar.
Claudia   Blackwood   and   Bruce
GORDON AND BLACKWOOD . . . tiresome lovers.
Gordon bring new life to stale
roles.
If the young lovers become a
little tiresome, their fathers soon
provide a comic interlude. Robert
Underwood plays the plump
boisterous navy man. His. foil is
thin, timid J. Michael Kelly.
Together they dance and prance
their way through some hilarious
exhortations on parenthood. The
-secret to getting children to do
what you want them* to do lies in
forbidding them to do it. By
pretending to hate each other, the
two fathers have encouraged the
love between the boy and the girl.
One phase of their plan to bring
the children together in marriage
involves a combined Indian raid-
pirate attack. The boy saves the
girl, and the first act ends with a
rosy tableau.
The second act is not quite so
pleasant. The glassy-eyed lovers
fall out of the dream world their
parents have created, into grim,
stark reality. Disillusioned, they
part to search the world for the
adventure and romance which
everyday life seldom provides.
But, in the end, tragedy gives way
to a mellow reunion.
Half of the musical numbers
compensate nicely for the
mediocrity of the other half.
Claudia Blackwood's fine voice is
heard to its best advantage when
she and Bruce Gordon sing
together. The best song, Try To
Remember,   is   given   to   the
Narrator, whose voice thrills yet
taunts the audience with hints of its
real potential.
The Narrator, resembling an
undernourished lion, has a strange,
probably difficult part. Richard
Newman must both participate in
the action of the play, yet stand
back to look on while he converses
with the audience. He manages to
come across as sarcastic, but in a
wise, benevolent way. The
Narrator's purpose is to steal
fantasies, to lead the actors into
grief and back to happiness. That
parents must not endeavour to
make life easy for their children,
that children must learn about real
life for themselves, is the lesson he
has chosen to teach.
The musical should be seen for
its laughs alone. The fathers help
turn a simple, moralistic tale into a
tragicomedy. Not to mention the
inhabitants of the black-box; a
dusty old man and an Indian with a
cockney accent who specializes in
operatic dying scenes.
The Fantasticks is a play with
nonsensical dialogue and
ridiculous situations. Somehow the
bare stage brings out the special
qualities of Tom Jones' story and
the actors' abilities. But the magic
key that makes it all work is the
black garbed pixie who mutely
hands the actors their props or
sprinkles glitter in the air. With her
help the audience is drawn into the
fantasy, painting new meaning into
an old story. Page 8

Inflation, wage controls f I
I'M GOING TO
WORK FOR
CANADA
0CT.I4
ByMARCUSGEE
One year ago less one day prime minister
Pierre Trudeau went on national television
to announce the formation of a new
bureaucratic body to control prices and
wages.
Since then, the anti-inflation board with
the sweeping powers given it by parliament
has directly or indirectly reached into the
lives of most Canadians.
In some cases its impact has been
dramatic.
In Kitimat riot police had to be called in to
stop an 18-day wildcat strike by workers at
the Alcan smelter there. Workers believe
the company used the board's regulations
unfairly to hold them to a small increase in a
recently negotiated contract.
.   -Vancouver's two major daily newspapers
\>shut down when workers stopped  work
because the company would not give then a
- penny;more than AIB regulations specify.
And right now workers are threatening to
turhihe mining town of Faro, Yukon into a-
ghost town because the all-powerful AIB
administrator has pared their legally
negotiated wage increase to eight per cent
afte^-they signed for 36 per cent.
Everyone agrees the AIB has treated
> business less severely than labor, but now
evieii^ the 'chamber of commerce,  which
;.'enthusiastically heralded the establishment
;o/"t^board,; is now turning on the Ottawa
bureaucracy.
friendly persuader
T^e AIB is run by chairman Jean Luc
Pepin, a former minister of industry, trade
and commerce and also a former executive
of the Quebec-based Power Corporation.
Pepin was handpicked by Trudeau to run
the board but his appointment was criticized
by observers who thought his business
connections would make him too favorable
to business.
Under Pepin is new vice-chairman June
Menzies, a Winnipeg economist. She
replaces Beryl Plumptre who resigned for
"personal reasons".
Pepin and Manzies oversee a sprawling
bureaucracy which has offices all across the
country. Although the AIB was supposed to
employ a maximum of 200 people, the
bureaucracy has now grown to more than
400.
Most agree it was ridiculous for the
government to think it could limit the board
staff to 200. Many of the large corporations
the board has to monitor have more than 200
staff in their accounting departments alone.
. And during the Second World War the,
Canadian government employed 10,000
people to oversee a much less complicated
and more popular controls program.
When the U.S. government established a
temporary control program in the early
1970s it employed 5,000 people to run it and
there was speculation the staff would increase to 25,000 if controls had stayed.
So the federal government was naive to
think it could get involved so deeply in
controlling the economy without a large
bureaucracy.
But the hundreds of nameless civil servants who handle the tons of paper that flow
through the board offices have no real
power.
An eight-member tribunal overseen by
Pepin makes the key decisions about where
wage and price rollbacks are necessary and
where to leave contracts and prices alone.
Pepin has called the tribunal a "friendly
persuader" which merely tries to talk
companies and workers into staying within
the wage and price control guidelines.
But in reality the board has the power to
order rollbacks anywhere it wants and stiff
fines await those who disobey its commands.
AIB hatchet man
fays down law
A summary conviction on charges of
evading the guidelines can bring fines of
$200 to $10,000. A conviction can bring five
years in prison or a $10,000 fine.
The board has seldom had to enforce its
penalties because few so far have tried to
challenge the law. But even if it had, many
have argued the penalties are too light. A
company like MacMillan Bloedel is unlikely
to be afraid of a $10,000 fine.
But if companies or workers refuse to
accept the recommendations of the tribunal,
the tribunal seldom does the dirty work of
laying down the law.
Instead it sends in hatchet man Donald
Tansley, AIB administrator.
According to the Anti-Inflation Act
Tansley is invested with extraordinary
powers of interpreting and enforcing the
law.
After the AIB ordered a rollback in the
-wage increase for workers at the Cyprus
An vil Mine in Faro to 14 per cent from 36 per
cent, it was Tansley who was sent in to
decide whether the rollback was a fair
application of the law.
Special pewers
Tansley decided it wasn't and rolled back-
the increase even further to eight per cent,
bringing the threat of mass resignations by
the workers.
The administrator has a number of
special powers to help him do his unsavory
job.
He can order audits and searches of
companies" and issue a restraining order if
he suspects a company will try to evade the
guidelines.
Tansley needs information to base his
decisions on and for those who refuse to
supply him with it there are fines of up to
$100 a day.
And if a company is found to have made
revenues in-excess of the guidelines Tansley
can order the company to pay the government a penalty of 25 per cent of the excess.
So Tansley spends most of his time flying
around the country laying down the law and
then getting out of town as quickly as
possible. Although the decisions by Tansley
concentrating on controlling wages instead
of prices because of outright discrimination,
in favor of business.
It is just a lot easier to control wages.
Contracts are much more tangible and
easier to study than price lists.
The board admits that it began by concentrating on wages but the government
claims recent revisions to the Anti-Inflation
Act have closed many of the loopholes in the
price control section of the program.
It certainly hasn't convinced most
workers yet that they are not the main
victims of the program.
But the board is at least structured to deal
equally with prices and wages.
The AIB is broken into two sections. One
monitors employer and executive benefits
on an industry to industry basis. The other
section, which monitors prices, is organized
into seven divisions each scrutinizing a'
different industry.
And indications so far show the board is
fairly independent from government influence, although Pepin undoubtedly consults often with his boss and buddy Pierre
Trudeau.
The AIB may reach into many people's
lives but there are some areas it stays away
from. For instance, the board has delegated
existing marketing boards to monitoring
prices and incomes in farming.
The regulation of gasoline prices is still in
the hands of the federal government. Small
farmers, merchants and businessmen are
also exempt.
Deflationary goal
The board only regulates corporations
with more than 500 employees and construction firms with more than 20 employees.
The stated objective of the board is to
reduce inflation to eight per cent this year,
to six per cent in 1977 and to four per cent in
1978.
Whether or not the board can bring inflation under control remains to be seen.

to roll back wages get the most publicity, he
often hands down decisions which give
workers more than the board itself did.
But if companies or workers don't like
Tansley's decision they can make an appeal
to the tribunal in Ottawa, and if that fails in
some cases they can go to the Federal Court
of Canada.
Appeals to the tribunal must come within
60 days of a decision by Tansley.
The composition of the anti-inflation
board is interesting—it being stacked with
brass that represents the concerns of
business.
After opposing the formation of the board
in the first place, labor refused to have a
representative sit on the board.
So what the board consists of is a cross;
section of people with interests in business.
The executive director of the board is
Robert Johnstone, a former director in
Canada of the International Monetary Fund.
And the associate director is Donald
Yeomans, former assistant deputy minister
of operational services for the federal
department of supply services.
And then of course there is Pepin with his
strong business connections.
But most critics agree the board is not Wednesday, Oefober~13, 1976"

tiled with wet spaghetti
By HEATHER WALKER
The Canadian Labor Congress voted at its
May conference this year to hold a general
strike to protest government imposed wage
and price controls—maybe.
Delegates at the conference gave the CLC
executive authority to "organize and conduct a general work stoppage or stoppages
when and if necessary" as part of labor's
continuing opposition to the anti-inflation
program.
Although the CLC did not set a date for the
strike, since renamed a day of protest, at the
conference, or even completely commit
itself to the protest, the actual decision to
hold a general day of protest was made at
the May conference.
The 2,400 delegates, representing more
than 2 million Canadian workers in international unions, public service, and
government employees, voted overwhelmingly in favor of the proposed strike.
In fact, the only opposition to the proposal
came from delegates who wanted the
motion to be stronger.
Canadian Union of Public Employees
organizer Lofty MacMillan wanted the CLC
to be more definite about the strike,
suggesting they drop the words "when and if
necessary" from the strike mandate.
Morris hesitates
over strike action
But MacMillan was not supported by
either the majority of delegates or the CLC
executive.
Instead, CLC president Joe Morris was
very cagey when asked if the CLC really
intended to go ahead with the strike.
"I wouldn't bet against it," said Morris.
Not exactly a strong statement.
But he did clarify and strengthen the
CLC's stand a while later.
"We didn't put the recommendation
forward with a view to finding an escape
hatch (in the future)," he said.
Morris was also hesitant about the objectives of the strike at the time of the
conference.
"I don't know what we will achieve. I don't
have much experience with general
strikes," he said.
His last statement is hardly surprising, as
this will be Canada's first general strike.
Bui: in spite of Morris's apparent
hesitation, the CLC could not back out of the
strike once it had received such overwhelming support for strike action. The CLC
did not expect a general strike would cause
the Liberals to withdraw their wage control
program, but it did see the strike as a means
for workers toexpress their opposition to the
controls in a way the government could not
fail to notice.
If, on the other hand, the CLC threatened a
general strike, and then backed out of their
decision, the move could easily be taken by
the government as indicative of rank and
file s upport of the controls within the labor
movement.
During the conference, the CLC also
presented a document, the Labor Manifesto
of Canada, which calls on government and
business to share their power in determining
.-national, economic and social policies
equally with organized labor.
The manifesto probably expresses the
CLC's reasons; for calling for the national
protest more clearly than Morris did later.
:fbe manifesto says:
'"We must make it clear that Canadian
labor will not be a part of this program
(wage controls) because they strike at the
basic principles on which our movement
Jwas founded.
"It must be clearly understood by all
governments that we will Tight to maintain
out-heritage, the right to control our own
desjb%j the right to freedom of association
and the right to dissent."
Show oi tone
The labor movement, according to the
manifesto, is not objecting to wage controls
because they limit the possibility of huge
salar y increases, but because the imposition
of controls interferes with collective
bargaining. When the government puts a
limit on wage increases, a union is held
within this limit, and management is immediately made more powerful because its
desire to limit wage increases is backed by
the government.
A local example is the recent settlement
between CUPE and the UBC administration. According to local union
president Ken Andrews, CUPE could not
negotiate effectively with the university
because it had to deal not only with the
administration, but with the government
controls as well.
In a speech during the convention, Morris
said union leaders understood the feelings of
union members better than the government
did, and that these people were opposed to
controls. He said he thought workers would
fight to bring an end to controls, and "the
sooner the government is made to understand this, the sooner it will put an end to
its anti-inflation policy."
The day of protest, to the CLC, is a show of
opposition to controls, and as such, an indication to the government that controls are
not good policy and should be removed.
During the conference at least one CLC
executive member thought the congress
would not follow up on its strike threat.
John Fryer, one of the CLC's vice-
presidents and general secretary of the B.C.
Government Employees Union, said there
was less than a 50 per cent chance of the
CLC actually calling a general strike.
OCT. 14
OUT
TO FIGHT
CONTROLS
Fryer said if the government dropped the
controls and discussed the labor manifesto,
there would be no need for a strike.
"I think there's a good chance that will
happen," he said.
He also suggested a one-hour withdrawal
of services might be a better course for
unions to take, rather than a general strike.
The CLC made what it called a "final
attempt" to have the government withdraw
the control program before the scheduled
time two years from now.
In an Aug. 6 meeting with prime minister
Trudeau, die congress asked that controls
be withdrawn because they controlled
wages more than prices.
The government, of course, didn't drop
the controls. And the CLC could hardly have
expected they would, as any such movement
would look like government capitulation to
union demands.
Following the Aug. 6 meeting, the
congress's executive council announced the
day of protest would take place.
OCT. 14
OUT
TO FIGHT
CONTROLS
They chose Oct. 14 as its date because tt is
the anniversary of :the wage and price
controls program. And the xJay was
renameda national day of protest instead of
a general strike, probably both t£ make the
object of the day more easily apparent and
to encourage non-union workers |p support
it. Besides, a day of protest sounds lea*
militant and threatening than a Strike.
With the protest scheduled #o* Oct M,
union leaders throughout the country had
only two months to prepare their members
for it.
As a result, there was confusion among
the unions about exactly what was Supposed
to happen, and Morris sent out a letter
saying the protest would include rallies,
parades, demonstrations, and information
picketing as well as a general work stoppage.
Morris said in the letter than protest day
activities would be decided on and coordinated by local labor councils, and that
the CLC would undertake "a massive
organizational program to ensure that our
activities on that day will once and for all
convince our government that Canadians
will not stand idly by, seeing their incomes
curtailed while prices, profits and dividends
remain unrestricted."
Mot convinced
The president of the Federation of
Telephone Workers of B.C., Bob Donnelly,
admitted that union leaders had a problem
convincing their members of the need for
the protest.
"Our provincial executive has
unanimously endorsed the position of the
CLC," Donnelly said.
"Now we have to convince the membership. Many of them don't realize how bad
the legislation really is. They don't realize
how badly it will effect them."     ,
Donnelly made that statement early last
month, and since then there has been some
evidence that union members are not
convinced of the value of the protest.
For example, bus drivers for B.C. Hydro
voted Saturday to work, reversing their
earlier decision. Their changed position
may not indicate only opposition to the
protest—as union members received letters
from Hydro chairman Robert Bonner
saying that an Oct. 14 work stoppage would
be illegal. But more members voted in the
decision not to support the protest than did
in the earlier decision.
It's clear now that most unions in B.C. will
support the protest, and that people who do
work won't be able to do their usual jobs
because of those groups which are out. But
unfortunately it is still not clear how much
support the union executives have for the
protest, or what the protest will accomplish.
And it won't be clear until after Oct. 14. Page  12

UBC unions support walkout
All three of UBC's unions have
decided to support the Canadian
Labor Congress's national day of
protest October 14.
UBC's largest union, local 116 of
the Canadian Union of Public
Employees, voted unanimously at
a Sept. 21 meeting to support the
day of protest.
CUPE is the largest campus
union, representing 1,400 workers
in food services, physical plant,
residences, and maintenance.
The union's executive decided to
join with other CUPE locals and
take part in rallies and demonstrations downtown. They encouraged the membership to do the
same.
CUPE's president at UBC, Ken
Andrews, says the UBC local has
an especially strong reason for
supporting the protest.
When the union signed its contract with the UBC administration
recently, Andrews said
negotiations between the union and
the administration were "almost
impossible'^.
He said the union was forced to
negotiate with the anti-inflation
board as well as. the administration;
AUCE eager
When the union finally agreed to
accept the administration's'of fer of
7.5 per cent instead of the 12 per
cent it wanted; Andrews said the
membership was more anxious
than ever to take part in the Oct. 14
protest against wage and price
controls.
The Association of University
and College Employees, local 1,
voted Thursday on the day of
protest.
AUCE represents library and
clerical workers on campus, and is
currently negotiating a new contract with the administration.
Spokeswomen for the union have
said that wage controls are hindering their negotiations, just as
Andrews said CUPE's collective
bargaining power was restricted.
AUCE members passed a motion
supporting the day of protest in
principle because, they said, the
anti-inflation board is being used to
diminish the effectiveness of
unions, and is not an equitable way
to deal with the problem of inflation.
The union decided to support
members, who choose to withdraw
their services from the university
and participate in the proposed
Oct. 14 activities.
AUCE organizer Farleigh
Funston said the union's two
motions left the choice on October
14 up to the individual members.
She said the membership wanted
the choice because the protest is a
political issue, and members don't
want to be subject to discipline
similar to that which occurs in a
strike if they chose to work that
day.
"The membership was split and-
a  lot  of  people  didn't   shew,"
Funston said. "We hope a lot of,
people will go out because we (the.
executive) all are."
AUCE, unlike CUPE  and the;.
Office and Technical Employees
union-, is ah independent union and
therefore not an affiliate of the
Canadian Labor Congress, that
organized the protest.
UBC's branch of the OTEU is
also supporting the day of protest.
But unlike the other campus
unions, OETU did not hold a
general membership meeting to
decide on. its position on the
protest.
Mo OTEU vote
OTEU secretary-treasurer Opal
Skillingsaid the union decision was
made in May at the CLC convention,"
"There   was   no   membership
vote—that was done at the convention," Skilling said.
"We always follow CLC policy."
Skilling said the OTEU supports
the protest because the wage
guidelines are not going to assist
the anti;inflation program when
profits and bank interests are
continuing to rise. She said the
union did not see any sign of price
controls.
i   "Our   union has been severely
rolled back by the AIB," she said.
"In one instance we had a joint
submission from a company and
the union, and the AIB told them at
the board to get a more realistic
solution."
Ron Johnson, director of
education and research for the
B.C. Federation of Labor, said
UBC unions reached their
decisions in the same ways as
other unions in the province did.
"Support for Oct. 14 became the
policy of the CLC," he said. The
representatives reported back to
their membership and from there
the respective executives did one
of two things."
He said the union executives
either took the question of support
to their memberships or else made
a recommendation to the union to
go out on Oct. 14'.
"In more cases the executive
agreed that the policy had already
been established by the CLC and
they had no choice but to support it,
Johnson said.

Students won't fight controls
Of 21 students interviewed,
one will boycott classes
on labor's day ot protest
By CHRIS GAINOR
The UBC administration says the
university will be open on Oct. 14 as usual.
They will probably be proved correct,
because at UBC, the only thing that will be
different from normal is that many
unionized workers and a small number of
students will be away supporting labor's
national day of protest.
Yes, students will be coming to classes
despite the fact that the B.C. Students'
Federation and the National Union of
Students support the day of protest and are
urging students to boycott classes on Oct. 14.
The Ubyssey survey of students Tuesday
showed that of 21 students interviewed, 16
will go to class Oct. 14, four do not have
classes that day and one will boycott
classes.
But many students who sympathize with
labor's grievances against wage controls
will not participate in the protest.
"I don't think it would have any effect one
way or the other," said Dan Balmos,
forestry 2. "The university is far removed
from the labor field."
Many would disagree with his view,
among them, many so-called student
leaders.
"I think Oct. 14 is our day, too," said Lake
Sagaris, chairwoman of the BCSF. "The
reason I say that is because students
themselves are workers."
Sagaris said many students benefit from
union jobs, especially during the summer
when they are trying to make money to
finance education.
"The labor movement in our society is one
of the few groups left in our society that
attaches great value to education in itself,"
she said.
an old criticism of UBC, but nevertheless a
valid one.
The cost of post-secondary education is so
great, in terms of lost wages and living and
tuition costs, that few people from working-
class families can afford to go to university—unless they have a lot of drive.
Many students attend UBC not because
they are especially suited for university, but
because they live west of Granville or in
West Vancouver's British Properties and
can stay at home while going to university
and pursuing a field which promises a high-
paying job.
Student reaction to a recent labor dispute
in which students had the opportunity to
support a union facing the UBC administration and the federal anti-inflation
board would help back up arguments that
UBC is an elitist institution.
A strike by the UBC local of the
Association of University and College
Employees was broken barely a week after
it started last December. Other campus
unions supported AUCE, but students did
not.
Some, in fact, hurled insults and missiles
at picket lines which surrounded the campus
during the strike.
But that time student council supported
the strikers. No stand has been taken by
student representatives regarding Oct. 14.
After numerous delays, the student
representative assembly was forced last
week to make up its mind. Student senator
Bill Broddy (a staunch Liberal, by the way)
moved that council "regret" the day of
protest.
Arts rep and former SRA president Dave
Van Blarcom then moved that Broddy's
motion be tabled indefinitely, because the
"It's a strike against the government but not directly against the
bosses. But the government is a
government of the bosses."
against the Trident nuclear submarine base
in Bangor, Wash.
Van Blarcom's motion succeeded, and the
SRA did not take a stand one way or the
other on Oct. 14.
But don't worry, the SRA then voted to ask
the administration not to penalize students
who boycott classes that day. And few
students have that much intestinal fortitude.
Current SRA president Dave Theessen,
who seconded Broddy's motion of regret,
had this to say: "I don't believe basically in
big government, big business or big labor.
But I don't believe in controls either.
"There's no room for the little guy in
And what about the fringes of student
opinion?
"I'm far to the right," SRA science rep
Aksel Hallin said. "But I think there's far
more danger in big government than in bog
labor."
It is for this reason that Hallin favors the
Oct. 14 protest.
"The point is that the government does not
and should not have the right to interfere to
that degree in the economy."
The government that is supposedly
fighting inflation has in fact caused it
because it printed too much money, Hallin
said. When the gross national product rose
"I'm far to the right, but I think
there's far more danger in big government than in big labor."
"Ironically enough, often it's the children
of working people who can't afford post-
secondary education."
Sagaris' last remark was a repetition of
SRA should not deal with such "airy fairy"
motions.
Two weeks earlier, Van Blarcom led the
fight to ensure that the SRA support protests
there. Unless you're one of the big three,
you're screwed."
But Theessen said the SRA should have
dealt with the matter because, "I don't think
it was trivial."
Theessen, who is also a commerce rep,
suggested that controls be dropped, as well
as all tarrifs against foreign goods entering
Canada. This would solve Canada's
economic problems after some short-term
hardship, he said.
External affairs officer Moe Sihota stands
oji the other side of the picket fence.
• "I personally do not agree with the way
(controls are) being handled. All that's
happening is that wages are being controlled and prices are not," Sihota said.
"And the whole AIB and the restraint
program has an effect on students."
In the past year, the opportunities for
youth and local initiatives programs have
been dropped, resulting in many lost student
jobs, he said.
And the federal government is being
tighter with money given to universities
under the Fiscal Arrangements Act, he
added. This will likely mean higher tuition
fees to be paid by students who earn
restrained wages and pay unrestrained
prices.
"Students earnings and average sayings
this year were down from last year," Sihota
added, "and the AIB has something to do
with it."
Last summer was one of the worst for
student unemployment, thanks in part to
government restraint. But the fact was
obscured when the annual survey of student
employment was eliminated this year.
by only four per cent annually, the government was increasing the money supply by 10
per cent annually.
Elaine Bernard, a history student and
member of the Young Socialists, said the
protest will result in an irreversable change
in Canadian society.
The antiwar movement of the 1960s
changed U.S. society, she said, because it
forced the government to stop a war and
then resulted in an atmosphere in which the
Watergate scandal could be fully investigated.
The change in attitudes did not allow the
U.S. government to intervene in Angola, as
it might otherwise have done, Bernard said.
"The same sort of process is now going on
in Canada," she added.
"It's a one-day general strike. It's a
political strike. It's against the government
but not directly against the bosses. But the
government is a government of the bosses."
Most strikes are for direct economic
reasons, but this strike is different, she said.
"In this case, its workers going out as a
class.
"Canada will not be the same after this."
In the middle are the 23,000 students of
UBC.
Many say "yes, I agree with it but I don't
feel strongly enough to participate," or, "do
two evils make a right?"
Many students will get their nice cushy
jobs in a twenty-eighth storey office
downtown, and will not know the reality of
the problems that working people face.
But many students (most of them unexpectedly) will find out what it's like to earn a
wage controlled  by  government.

McGill group
to shut down U*
MONTREAL (CUP) — Activities
to protest federal wage controls on
Thursday at McGill University
here were co-ordinated at a Friday
meeting of the campus Oct. 14
protest committees.
The McGill Oct. 14 Committee
aims to shut down McGill
University Thursday and has
appealed to McGill professors and
students to join the nationwide
opposition to controls by refusing
to lead or attend classes Oct. 14.
The 15 committee members
concluded their preparations for
the day of protest by delegating to
individuals the various responsibilities of publishing committee
leaflets and documents, and
speaking to classes and student
groups around campus about the
labor walkout.
In addition, Allessandro
Lucarino, a representative from
the McGill Service Workers Union,
Local 298, affiliated with the
Quebec Federation of Labor,
Pierre Paquette of the McGill
Teaching Assistants Association,
and a student from the Association
Generale des Etudiants de
L'Universite du Quebec a Montreal
spoke at Friday's meeting about
the policies of their respective
groups.
Lucarino said that at a
"disappointingly small" meeting
of 100 union members, workers
voted 66-26 to support the Oct. 14
day of protest.
He said the rank and file workers
reached the decision after an
apparent executive attempt to stall
a final strike vote.
The workers recommended
setting up a special group of service employees, including union
executives, to prepare leaflets and

documents for workers who didn't
attend the meeting, explaining the
vote result and urging them to
support the one-day walkout.
The union also decided to send
some of its members to major
entrances to McGill campus
Thursday morning to meet shift
workers beginning the morning
shift and McGill students to persuade them not to cross picket lines
and to refuse to enter the campus.
McGill's student Oct. 14 committee agreed to support the early
morning effort by bolstering picket
lines to campus entrances.
A representative from the
student association at the
University of Montreal said more
than 300 U of M students voted
overwhelmingly in favor of participating actively in the Oct. 14
protest.
U of M students, service workers
and professors have decided to join
the walkout and participate in a
major trade union demonstration
to be held in downtown Montreal.
The demonstration is being
organized by the three major labor
centrals of Quebec — the Confederation of National Trade
Unions, the Quebec Federation of
Labor and the Quebec Teachers
Corporation.
Business as usual
From page 1
unions are supporting the protest.
While the administration is
ignoring the strike, two campus
organizations are jointly sponsoring a public forum to bring
attention to it and give people the
opportunity to express their views.
The Lutheran Student Movement
and the Co-operative Christian
Campus Ministry will hold their
meeting noonto2:30 p.m. Tuesday
in SUB ballroom. The main topics
of discussion will be the Anti-
Inflation Board and the value of
such a day of protest as that being
held.
Political science professor Phil
Resnick, economics prof Gideon
Rosenbluth and Steve Hills of the
department of business administration will speak at the
meeting, as will Terry Anderson of
the Vancouver School of Theology
and possibly representatives of
CUPE and AUCE.
Students wanting to participate
in the day of protest are asked to
meet at Sunset Beach at 8 a.m.,
Thursday prior to a march to the
downtown AIB office. Afterwards
there will be a public rally outside
the Queen Elizabeth Theatre.
UVic pres flares up at McGeer
From page 1
Music department chairman Phillip Young said
McGeer's joke "doesn't quite get this far because it's
no longer a laughing matter."
"It's disappointing as hell that he didn't make it,"
Young said. "The students were really anxious to
have him here and show the conditions we work under
every day. I can't believe he thinks he has enough
information."
Fine arts dean Peter Smith was also upset with
McGeer's actions. "I just cannot take that man
seriously at all," Young said. "What I think of him
would not be fit to print."
Petch earlier said the report of the universities'
council capital planning and development committee
was prepared without consultation of the two
members of the committee from UVic.
Petch charged the report is a total reversal of the
council's earlier position and said it approved construction of the music building almost two years ago.

Pool workers
to stay home
despite doubts
By SHANE McCUNE
No one working on the site of UBC's indoor
pool is certain that all construction will
cease Thursday, but most workers will be
taking part in the protest walkout.
Asked to comment on the walkout, several
workers said recently they didn't expect the
Oct. 14 protest to, put an end to the Anti-
Inflation Board.
"I believe in it (the protest). That's why
I'm. going out," said Bill Campbell, a
member of the United Brotherhood of
Carpenters and Joiners. "It won't work, but
it's a show of solidarity. It will show
Trudeau how the working man feels."
Campbell said he doesn't expect the public
to support the protest.
"They won't support anything," he said.
"It's just dog eat dog nowadays."
Campbell's sentiments were echoed by
Site superintendent Walter Sherstobetoff
said he expects to see some workers on the
job Thursday.
"I don't think they'll gain anything by
walking out," he said. "I'm going to be here,
and I hope they'll all be here, but that's too
much to expect.
"Most of the teamsters will be'here, and
some of- the laborers,'' he added. ' 'We'll see"
what happens Thursday."
At least one teamster on the site, however,
was skeptical .about Sherstobetoff's
prediction.
"He thinks so?" said Hugh Bird, referring
to Sherstobetoffs confidence in the
Teamsters. "I doubt it.
"The Teamsters say we'll be working ,but
we won't be. All the work sites will be shut
down, anyway."
REPORTER McCUNE, CARPENTER DAVE HAHN
other carpenters on the site, who expressed
doubt about the protest's effectiveness, but
said they did not regret losing a day's pay.
"We've got to do something, don't we?"
said Charles Robertson, another carpenter.
"We had to stop Hitler, didn't we?"
Most of the workers interviewed did not
want to be photographed, and many did not
want their names used, None of the laborers
interviewed, most of whom were Portuguese, would express an opinion on the
protest.

Teamsters union officials have not endorsed the general walkout, but have left the
decision to individual union members.
"It makes no difference to me if I lose my
pay that day," said Bird. I think (the
protest) might work."
Bird and carpenter Dave Hahn were the
only union members interviewed who felt
the protest might have some success. They
are among the younger men on the site, and
they are the only two who would consent to
be photographed.

'Students, workers share concerns'
You thought you were going to spend
Thursday morning in bed, didn't you?
The Committee for a Democratic
University says students have more at stake
in the issue of wage and price controls than
they realize.
They say UBC students should join the
B.C. Teachers' Federation contingent of the
mass marches downtown Thursday morning.
The rallying point is Sunset Beach near
the Vancouver Aquatic Centre at 8 a.m.
"Students can't see themselves as having
anything in common with workers. The CDU
argues that there is a common purpose,"
CDU member Lawrie McMahen said.
"Many students have summer jobs that
are unorganized. If tuition costs and ICBC
costs have gone up more than wages, there's
no equality of application (of wage and price
controls)," McMahen said.
He said students feel apart from the real
world whileat school. When they do get a job
after leaving school, students think their
jobs will be unaffected by the anti-inflation
program.
McMahen said the Oct. 14 day of protest
will make university people aware of the
issues of wage and price controls.
The CDU says the controls are unfair
because most rollbacks in the last year have
been of wages, not profits, despite soaring
corporate profits.
This   freezes    existing   inequalities   in
socie ty and does not aid in the redistribution
of wealth in society.
The controls go hand-in-hand with cut-
Protest bores profs
The UBC faculty association executive
has decided its members will not have a
chance to decide as a group whether to
support the Oct. 14 day of protest.
Association president Leslie Crouch said
Tuesday the decision whether to take part in
the protest against wage and price controls
will be left up to individual professors.
He said the association is not directly
concerned with the protest and there is not
enough interest by professors to warrant a
general meeting to decide whether to
support it.
Association vice-president Richard
Roydhouse said there was not erough time
before the protest to call a general meeting.
Other issues facing the association take
priority over a decision about the protest, he
said.
Most professors contacted by The
Ubyssey Tuesday said they didn't think the
association  should take a  stand on the
protest. They said professors should decide
individually what to do.
3\nd most said they would be at the
university Thursday performing their usual
duties. They said they don't believe the
protest concerns them and many expressed
total disinterest.
One anthropology professor said he has
cancelled a class and some other professors
in the anthropology department are doing
the same. He said he was holding some of his
classss because his studehts voted they be
held.
The professor said the faculty
association's decision not to hold a meeting
about the protest is "typical."
But most professors are going ahead with
classiss as usual.
A comment by another professor summed
up the feeling of the professors contacted
Tuesday.
"The university and the labor movement
are two different worlds."
backs in spending in education and other
social services. This is evident in the budget
squeeze on universities and colleges, and
are linked to proposed tuition fee increases,
the group says. '
"For the first time in living memory the
labor movement in Canada is getting
together," Phil Resnick, assistant political
science professor, said Tuesday. "The
federal government is already reacting to
pressure. They may phase out some controls
over the next year," said Resnick, also a
CDU member.
"The Canadian Labour Congress wants to
show that there is a strong constituency, but
to use it for limited ends," he added. "It
may be the beginning of a politicization
inside the CLC, but I doubt it."
"The form of capital control being
practiced benefits business far more than
labor." Resnick said if there is a poor turnout for the walkout Oct: 14, labor's position
may be weakened.
"There are 2.2 million people in the CLC.
If a million walk out, some will say—Oh my
god, a million people.
"I think the labor trend in part is hard to
measure," Resnick said, "and to what
extent this will influence unorganized
workers."

41st service cut
From page 2
Diesel buses will start at
Kingsway and Nelson in Burnaby
and travel to UBC. This extended
service will run from 7 a.m. to 11
p.m.  Monday through Saturday.
The route extension is intended
to serve the new B.C. Telephone
building in Burnaby. All Forty-first
buses currently turn around at the
Joyce Loop.
But Forty-first service on
Sundays will be cut back from the
current 16 hours of service (7:25
a.m. to 12:07 a.m.) to six hours of
service (11:25 a.m. to 5:25 p.m.)
This service will continue to run
every half hour from the Joyce
loop to UBC.
The extended and more frequent
Forty-first service will reduce the
Forty-ninth route to a skeletal
service. Men and equipment will
be transferred to Forty-first.
On weekdays the Forty-ninth bus
will be cut back to service to UBC
during thewinter session only from
the service which at present runs
all year.
All other Forty-ninth buses will
run from Kingsway and Nelson to
Dunbar and Forty-first only.
Passengers will have to transfer at
the Dunbar loop to a Forty-first bus
to UBC. All Saturday and Sunday
service direct to UBC will be
discontinued.
There will be a doubling of
service to UBC, Atterton said
Tuesday.
"It will improve transit connections with many north-south
routes and therefore the need for
the Forty-ninth route won't 'be
nearly as acute," Atterton said.
He said the changes are a result
of ongoing traffic checking.
"People would rather have a more
regular service Monday to
Saturday than a less regular
service on Forty-ninth," Atterton
said.
City council must still approve
the proposed changes.
The AMS asks those against the
Oct. 29 route changes to write to
city council, B.C. Hydro's transportation division and local
MLAs, MPs, and newspapers.

Beer goes to both the faculty with

Both faculties won 10 cases of
beer, donated by Molson and the

Approximately 16 per cent of
rehabilitation students bled, and
eight per cent of science students.

If deported from Canada
Iranian fears execution at home
By HEATHER WALKER
An Iranian., citizen facing
deportation from Canada said
ruesday he fears he will be
executed if forced to return to Iran.
Rasti Maymandi, 24, a deserter
from the Iranian air force, is
currently living in Vancouver
while he awaits a decision on his
case from the International Advisory Committee on Applications
for Refugee Status in Canada.
His case was sent to the advisory
committee after an inquiry
hearing July 16.
Maymandi said he does not know
when the committee, part of the
Immigration Department, will
decide on his case.
Maymandi has been living in
Canada without status since Sept.
1, 1973, when he deserted from the
Iranian air force.
He said he joined the air force in
1970, and was sent to the U.S. for
further training as part of a
government program. He said the
program involves 1,500 to 2,000
students every year, and that he
was part of an aerospace ground
equipment course.
Maymandi said he originally
joined the air force because of an
advertising campaign stressing
"things like a high salary and a
rosy future." He said he knew
nothing about the air force except
its advertising slogans.
"I decided I did not wish to stay
in the Iranian air force because of
the role I would have to play in
enforcing unjust laws which would
contribute to repression in Iran,"
said Maymandi.
He said repression in Iran was a
' 'well-documented fact."
"Amnesty International (an
organization  devoted  to  freeing
political prisoners) says there are
between 25,000 and 100,000 political
prisoners in Iran. They say that no
country in the world has a worse
recordin human rights than Iran,"
Maymandi said.
He said the prisoners included
doctors, professors, artists and
students, all pf whom were considered opponents of Shah
Mohammed Reza's authoritarian
regime.
Maymandi and Mohammed
Falsafr, a member of the Ad Hoc
Committee in Defense of Rasti
Maymandi, said the prisoners
were arrested by the Iranian
secret police, SAVAK.
MAYMANDI
deserted air force
SAVAK is an acronym standing
for "something like security, information and intelligence,"
Falsafr said.
"SAVAK keeps tabs on those who
oppose the Shah. They process
cases for the secret military
tribunals where they are judged,
and are involved in every stage of
the persecution of those whose
views are contrary to the Shah's.
"SAVAK also functions outside
the country, and it is estimated
that one out of every nine Iranians
has occasionally worked for
SAVAK as an agent or informer,"
Falsafr said.
Maymandi said his opposition to
the Shah consisted of discussions
about Iran with his fellow students
in the air force.
"I didn't question the Iranian
government. I talked to
classmates, students in the air
force. We discussed the situation,
the repression and the things which
were happening in Iran."
He said he thought he had been
watched before he came to Canada
by Iranian air force personnel at
the U.S. bases where he was
trained.
"I think one of them was an
agent, because they have another
kind of agent inside the military to
oversee the activities of the ranks.
"I raised questions about Iran,
and I fear returning to Iran
because I would be persecuted
because of that."
Maymandi said when he decided
to come to Canada, the immigration department told him he
could seek political asylum in
Canada. He said he did not apply
for refugee status earlier because
he has no legal status in the
country. When he entered in 1973,
Political means sought
for changing birth control
TORONTO (CUP) — Political
strategies for changing methods of
birth control research highlighted
a conference on Politics of Contraception held recently at the
University of Toronto.
Workshops dealing with specific
areas of research such as the birth
control activities of drug companies in the Third World, the male
pill and the morning-after pill were
featured. Other workshops with
legal, medical and labor
representatives discussed the most
effective ways to press their
demands.
The conference was jointly
organized by the Abortion and
Contraception Committee of
Toronto and the Ontario Institute
for Studies in Education.
ACCT plans to hold an Oct. 16
demonstration at Queen's Park in
Toronto to demand funds for birth
control research from the
provincial government.
The group released a statement
suggesting that since women
gamble with present birth control
methods, provincial lotteries such
as Wintario should finance
research.
ACCT also demanded that drug
companies stop their experiments-
in the Third World, where they said
women are treated with untried
and potentially ineffective and
unsafe methods.
Problems in the Third World,
said a speaker from the Latin
American Working Group, arise
because the Third World exports
more food to North America than
it imports. With not enough to eat,
children become an asset to make
more income. Foreign aid in the
form of capital intensive industry
forces people to move to the cities,
resulting in an artificially created
over-population problem, she
explained.
"The question is who has control.
Often there is massive sterilization
or bribery for participating in birth
control programs," the speaker
said.
One doctor described his extensive research on the male pill.
He said the problem of the pill
destroying male hormones still
exists, and he commented that
"not too many men want this."
Taking a feminist perspective,
Kathy McDonnell, currently
writing The Politics of Health
Care, said "women are not
represented where contraceptive
decisions are made." She said
women must regain control over
themselves.

CLEAN-UP
A major complaint by women at
the conference was the control
drug companies have of researching and marketing of products,
the tremendous profits such
companies make'and the lack of
available information on contraceptives.
Marlys Edwards, a Toronto
lawyer, and other women
demanded that the adverse drug
reaction plan be made law.
Under the plan, doctors are
requested — but not required — to
fill out a card and send it to the
government when a patient has an
adverse reaction to a drug.
Shelley Acheson, a health worker
from the Ontario Federation of
Labor, suggested using the labor
movement as force for change.
Organized Working Women
represents women in collective
bargaining units and is bargaining
for health packages concerning
maternity leave, day care and

he thought he could apply for
landed immigrant status,
Maymandi said.
"But then someone said if I
applied I'd be deported," he said.
But Maymandi decided this year
he no longer wished to be in the
country without a legal status, and
on July 2 tried to go back to the
U.S. where he could apply for
landed immigrant status in
Canada.
"I was arrested at the border by
the American authorities because I
didn't have a passport on me," he
said.
"It was taken away while I was
in the U.S. by the Iranian commanding officer, Colonel Samiey.
They used to do that within the
bases once we were in the U.S., and
give them back to us when we were
transferred to another base."
Maymandi said he was handed
over to Canadian immigration
after his arrest, and an inquiry
hearing was set for July 16.
That hearing forwarded his case
to the committee on applications
for refugee status, which is still
reviewing his case.
Falsafr and Maymandi said they
had heard a report which they
could not confirm of the execution
of two Iranian students. They said
the students were air force
trainees who failed their exams
and were sent home and subsequently executed.
"We can't confirm that report,
but we know that 90 people were
executed in the first four months of
1976," Falsafr said.
Falsafr and Maymandi said
anyone who wants further information on the case should write
to 314-422 Richards Street, or phone
683-3206.
They also have petitions which
will be sent to the committee on
applications for refugee status in
Canada, and a letter which can be
signed and sent to immigration
minister Robert Andras.

Huskies goof, 'Birds take first
By PAUL WILSON
The UBC Thunderbirds football
team gained sole possession of first
place in the Western Intercollegiate Football League
Saturday when they capitalized on
a goof by the University of
Saskatchewan Huskies to win 16-
15.
The Huskies scored a touchdown
late in the game to pull within two
points of UBC, 16-14. But UofS
coach Val Schneider decided to go
for a one-point conversion instead
of a two-point conversion that tied
the score, and hoped to get the
ballback for a shot at a field goal.
They did get the ball back, but
lost their chance when UBC's
veteran defensive back Al Chorney
recovered a Husky fumble on
UBC's 38 with 25 seconds left in the
game.
The 'Birds defence in the first
quarter set up the first major of the
game when middle linebacker
AJlister Cave intercepted a UofS
pass.
Quarterback Dan Smith then
threw a 21 yard touchdown pass to
Digby Leigh,
Later in the first quarter the
'Birds put together an 85-yafd
march with tailback Glen Wallace
finishing it off with an,8 yard dash.
' 'Bird placekicker- Gary M#z

the>Birds a head 144) -at quarter
■ time;
The 'Birds in the second quarter
■finished off their scoring when
Cave and end John; Turecki caught
Huskie quarterback Barrie Fraser
in his own end zone for a two-point
safety'touch.
The Huskies: gained a single and.
the quarter ended with the score
16-1.
After a weil-played first half the
'Birds offence slowed right down.
The second half was a series of
punts and fumbles. Although the
'Birds were making mistakes the
Huskies didn't seem to be able to
capitalize on them until Les McFarlane grabbed the ball from
Bird fullback Gord Penn and
sprinted 55 yards for a touchdown.
The Huskies again capitalized on
a 'Bird tunrover when Evan Jones
fumbled a pass from 'Bird quarterback Greg Garoiner. The
Huskies recovered and drove in for
the touchdown on a run by Gene
Wall.
The Huskies then had a choice
between a one-point kicked convert
or a two point run
Huskie coach Val Schneider
chose the one point convert and it
cost him the game and first place
in the league.
The 'Birds led the Huskies in

got 20 first downs to the 'Birds 16
The leading rusher of the game
was Gord Penn who carried 16
