Vancouver, B.C. Friday. January 25. 198E
222 23C:
Vancouver will host a world's fair
in the summer of '86. Beyond that
the picture is cloudy.
Expo boss Jim Pattison puts it
this way: "This thing is like show
business. You put up all your
money, you build it, you set your
pricing and then you pray. You
pray the public comes, you pray the
public likes it and you pray it
catches the public fancy for repeat
Just what is the public's fancy?
The Expo development proceeds
daily. Rising out of the False Creek
foreshore the modules, bubbles,
and domes of Expo are taking
Little is known about the Expo
fair beyond the labor strife and the
dim picture provided by short pronouncements from the Expo brass.
The Centre for Investigative Journalism organized a day long
seminar on Expo at Robson Square
Jan. 19. Titled "the Expo gamble,"
the seminar drew speakers on many
aspects of the Expo development.
To its supporters Expo will be a
boost to the sagging B.C. economy.
It will create employment, attract
business, and even turn a profit.
Expo communications director
George Madden rattles off the
numbers: 20,000 direct jobs
created, government tax revenues
of $170 million and additional
economic output of $2.8 billion.
"Expo is no gamble, it's a sure
thing," says Madden.
But Bob Allen is one of a number
of UBC economists who dispute the
validity of Madden's figures. Allen
refers to a study conducted by the
B.C. Economic Policy Institute
which projected a $500 million net
loss to B.C. on account of Expo.
Allen says he comes from a family of fair lovers — so his criticism is
particularly telling. He questions
the ability of Expo to attract
business to B.C. Says Allen,
"Business decisions depend upon
analysis of resources, capital, and
labor, not advertising like Expo.
Major investment decisions are only
made after careful calculations of
costs and benefits."
Allen says Expo's effect on B.C.
tourism has been exaggerated."
One million additional visitors in
1986 is not that large an increase
when six million people come to
B.C. annually."
Allen says Expo only makes
economic sense as a job creation
project. "This government argues
that the only way to relieve the
recession is to cut government
spending, yet they are taking the
opposite tack," he adds. But he
says the $806 million earmarked for
Expo could have been better spent,
citing funding shortfalls in
reforestation and education.
"It is the people in the Interior
who are getting hit," Allen says.
"The benefits of jobs and tourist
dollars will be concentrated here in
Vancouver. And tax dollars that
otherwise might be spent in other
B.C. communities are not going to
be available."
But Expo is going ahead anyway
Allen says, "so we might as well let
everyone enjoy the party." He proposes a scheme to provide free
tickets to B.C. residents on welfare
and    unemployment    insurance.
New Orleans city planner Ralph
Thayer details the behind the scenes
events that led to the New Orleans
world fair's disaster. Thayer, the
keynote speaker, calls the B.C. fair
well organized. He says, "people
assume we must have been a bunch
of dummies down there. This is not
true, we were just too optimistic."
Thayer says the press must fulfill
the role of a public ombudsperson.
"With a project this size the public
has every right to ask hard questions, to ask how much the bill is
going to cost. If the fair goes belly-
up your taxes are sure to follow."
The press must walk the fine line
between boosterism and good
reporting, says Thayer. The New
Orleans fair showed how media
coverage could hurt attendance.
Thayer warns there is little
chance of Expo realizing its revenue
projections of one billion dollars
during the fair's course. "There is
no way other than vacuuming the
wallets of all the tourists who come
here," he adds.
Thayer says people need to look
at more than break-even accounting. "You need to define the long-
term residual benefits of Expo to
the community." These, he says,
can take the form of transportation
improvements, waterfront
redevelopment, and civic pride.
Seattle Times reporter Stan Paddy covered Seattle's 1962 world
fair. The Seattle Expo was the only
one in history to break even. But
Paddy insists the Seattle fair was
more than economics. "The exposi
tion of 1962 was the turning point
in Seattle's development. The fair
changed our way of looking at our
c.ty, Seattle changed from a sleepy
town into a dynamic city," says
Jim Green of the Downtown
Eastside Residents Association
represents those who will be most
directly affected by Expo development. Green says the housing problems of the Downtown Eastside
area will be aggravated by Expo.
Seventy-five per cent of the people
in the area rent space in hotels and
rooming houses. Most of these people rely on income assistance of
some kind and cannot afford high
rents. Green says these long-time
residents will be squeezed when
commercial landlords raise rents
and shift accommodation to
capitalize on the influx of Expo
Green criticizes Expo as part of
an overall government strategy
directed against working people in
B.C. He says: "Welfare rates are
frozen, hospital staffs and education budgets have been cut. Yet we
spend $17 million to pay for a ball
that glitters on False Creek."
The decision to abolish the North
Gate entrance from Expo into
Chinatown was politically
motivated, Green adds. "They (the
Expo brass) feared people would go
to Chinatown and Gastown to eat
and shop. To make Expo pay off
they need to keep people spending
on site," he says.
Ralph Thayer says his experience
in New Orleans shows that above all
it is necessary to have a good time.
"A world's fair should be a Community celebration," he adds. Vancouver must hope the community
celebration of Expo '86 does not
become the collective hangover of
A glass of wine and cheese is all
that the artistic community is going
to get out of Expo, according to
Province art critic Max Wyman.
"Expo is a big machine rolling
over the locals" says Wyman,
speaking in the cultural panel of last
Saturday's seminar on the impact
of Vancouver's 1986 world's fair.
Wyman tells the audience of 900
Expo doesn't think about its art
community — the Playhouse
Theatre, The Firehall Theatre, the
Vancouver East Cultural Centre,
and the dance community. "Two
films are being made for B.C.
Pavilion — in the United States" he
Wyman says ignoring the local
scene means a lot of lost dollars for
locals in the short run. And in the
long run people will develop a taste
for the expensive glitter. "People
will say, without Expo approval the
show isn't good enough. People are
being trained to admire the imported and the glitzy" he charges.
What is missing is a committment
to develop indigenous artists, says
Wyman. "Opening ceremonies the
first night is an all Canada shut
Architect Ian Davidson echoes
Wyman's dissatisfaction with Expo's direction. He says Expo's
theme should be excellence but in
stead False Creek is turning into the
Davidson is referring to the Expo acquisition of the Ramses II exposition which has left Cairo only
once previously. The Ramses II
costs Expo five million dollars.
"Native art is as important as the
Egyptian Pyramids in European
eyes but not in Canadian's" says
Davidson. Expo has commissioned
a large canoe from the genius of
native carver Bill Reid. "Now if
that isn't banal I don't know what
is" says Davidson. Bill Reid should
be in charge of a pavilion and the
Ramses II should be placed in the
Vancouver Art Gallery and shown
at no extra cost to Expo goers, he
Davidson speaks with the passion
of someone dedicated to excellence.
"It should be titled Mediocrity '86
and not Exposition '86" he says
without hint of sarcasm. Wondering at the dissolution of the Chinese
gate which would have led into Expo from Chinatown he asks: "Five
million for Ramses II and not a
penny for the Gate? Going past
Chinatown and Japantown would
really give people an idea about our
diverse culture rather than taking
them past cement things."
According to writer Clive Barnes,
says Davidson, Canadians suffer
from an inferiority simplex. David
son calls attention to the fake
geodesic dome, a new round
building with flashing lights, as the
Canadian Expo theme building
partly being built by
"The geodesic dome is like every
cither geodesic dome and it can be
found all over, we should have a
symbol of our own. The people in
charge don't want to utilize the
creative energy that is the best of
Canadian talent.
"The brilliant industrial
designer, Francois Delleret from
Montreal, cannot get his foot in the
door. Neither can Jean Andre,
another well known designer." says
Davidson. Both are Canadian. An
exception is Expo's artist-in-
resident, Evelyn Roth, who is simply amazing, Davidson adds.
Christopher Wootten, Expo programming director, agrees with
Davidson's quest for excellence in
Eixpo. "But I'm irked about Bill
Reid's canoe being called banal.
Why don't you ask Bill Reid?" hs
"I have," replied Davidson.
And Wooten says the Northwest
Indian exhibit planned for the Vancouver Art Gallery was cancelled.
But, there is a committment to the
community, Wooten claimed. He
quickly rattled off the forthcoming
attractions: The Ramses II, Bill
Reid's canoe, World Festival by
Anne Darling, commissioned works
by 12 B.C. artists, avant garde artist
Michael Snow, Evelyn Roth, and
more. "At least one third of the Expo fine arts program will come from
Canadian works," Wootten promises.
There are also special events including national events, tall ships, a
DC-3 plane that will take 15
minutes to pass by, and more, says
In the open question period
following the panel, Wootten was
asked why only $35,000 is
available to commission dance
works from the entire Canadian
dance community.
Wootten did not reply to the
man, who claimed the dance commissions are only a tokenism, but
he did say Ramses II falls into a
special category "which doesn't
mean we're taking the theme less
seriously," when someone asked
what Ramses and Expo's transportation theme had in common other
than slaves dragging stones.
Another unsatisfied customer
asked, "Is it true we have to satisfy
the locals but what we want is
something we can advertise in
California?" to which Wootten
replied Expo is a world event. Page 2

Project continues
Project Wolf will be changing its
strategy this year to take a low key
approach in its struggle against the
provincial government wolf kill, a
Project Wolf spokesperson told 40
people in Buchanan A 100 Thursday.
Project Wolf coordinator David
Garrick said this year there will be
no media and no southern
celebrities such as Paul Watson going into northern B.C. Project Wolf
will send a crew to show northern
people the project is not against
hunting or trapping, said Garrick.
He said the project is only against
the elimination of wolves for the
benefit of foreign hunters who care
little about B.C.'s wildlife or
"Their objective is to maximize
personal profit, not employ Canadians," he said. Foreigners are attempting to set up safari areas said
Garrick,  where semi-domesticated
prey wait for people to hunt them.
Garrick said Project Wolf's protests last year were an emergency
response to a new situation. Protesters last winter went to the Fort
Nelson area attempting to disrupt a
government plan to kill hundreds of
wolves to increase populations of
moose, elk, mountain sheep and
caribou. This winter government
staff have killed 90 wolves in the
Muskwa and Kechika regions.
Garrick said despite problems
with last year's protest and current
"mud-slinging" the project has
stimulated interest. "People didn't
know of 100 per cent wolf extermination," he said.
Garrick said protesters decided
direct action was the only approach
to the kill.
The lecture was sponsored by the
UBC Anarchist Club, the Socialists
Education Society and the Latin
America Support Committee.
My favorite prof is mad© bv I.B.M. He is a good prof but he keeps insisting that Michaefangelo's "David" should be smashed into rubble along with that other

throughout the products of my word-processing. Last time, I got an"?" from the University of Canada markers, as well as a reprimand from the Dean, because

Great Trek moves one step closer
UBC's fusty, acquiescent faculty
voted Thursday to organize a Great
Trek from UBC to the government
buildings downtown.
Political science professor Phil
Resnick, who initiated the idea, said
Thursday he was happy with the
vote but unless students support the
idea it won't get off the ground.
Resnick said an ad hoc faculty com
mittee will soon approach student
groups, campus unions and other
campus faculties.
If the march does go ahead in
early February, Resnick said it
should be an interesting event where
people are free to express
themselves. "Some people might
want to walk in their lab coats, or
their academic gowns," said
Resnick. "Some people may want
to treat it as a carnival," he said.
"It doesn't have to be sober," he
The decisions on when to hold
the event, how to stage the march
and the rally and who to invite will
be determined by a committee
formed of all those interested in the
march, Resnick said.
UBC has a history of marching to
draw attention to its funding.  In
1922 students staged the first march
from the old campus near Vancouver General Hospital to Point
Grey to protest the provincial
government's failure to build
B.C.'s promised university.
Resnick said the number of faculty that attended the special afternoon meeting, 225 or 10 per cent,
was not as much as he had hoped
for. But he said it was still the
largest faculty meeting this
academic year.
;92 of the present faculty voted
for the motion and only 12 voted
against it, Resnick said. The motion
originally required that 300 faculty
vole to make it binding on the
faculty  executive  but  the  motion
was amended so that if 60 per cent
of 300 faculty voted yes the decision
would be binding.
Resnick said he hopes the committee formed to organize the event
chooses a weekday to stage it on so
people will notice it more.
Faculty association president
Elmer Ogryzlo said he personally
supports the idea and will attempt
to organize a planning committee
immediately. But he said if student
response is weak faculty may not go
ahead with the plan.
He said the march should be staged before the provincial government brings down its budget in mid-
February. Then it might affect
university funding, Ogryzlo said.

Students can ease back from the
edge of their seats and stop wondering now that the results are in on
who will be the new student board
of governors and senate members.
Almost 1,000 more students
voted this year, 2,961 in total or
more than 10 per cent of UBC's
population, compared to last year.
And most students this year voted
for both board and senate candidates, while last year several hundred less cast senate ballots.
Don Holubitsky and Nancy
Bradshaw are the new board
members. Incumbent Holubitsky
topped all polls with 1,392 votes.
Bradshaw managed 1,195 votes.
Alan Pinkney came third with 1,101
votes, Phil Bennett fourth with 732
and Steven Harris fifth with 699
The five winning senator-at-large
candidates are incumbent Donna
Chow (1,196), Jane Ingman-Baker
(1,159), Steven Hill (1,157), Justin
Williamson (1,007) and Dierdre
Moore (911).
Other new senators are Jim
Hamilton from applied science,
Terry Orr from arts, Rene Thomsen
from forestry, Paddi Arthur from
law, Adrian Kimberly from commerce, incumbent Ron Yaworsky
from graduate studies, and Kirk

analogous to buying a car on credit
without knowing whether the
money can be found to pay for it.
He could not rule out the possibility
of "involuntary" retirements next
year if insufficient numbers of

know about UBC's buy out program and whether the government
will give extra funds for it.
AMS election candidates
speak on student issues
Group drops cyanide scheme
A petition for a referendum on
stockpiling cyanide pills for a possible nuclear attack was dropped
because it had served its purpose
and received sensationalist publicity, said a Students for Peace and
Mutual Disarmament spokesperson
"The point was a little gimmick
for publicity. We wanted to say that
the whole arms race was sick and
that this was symbolic," Gary Mar-
chant said.
Marchant    said    there    were
students who disagreed with the
petition, but added quite a few
students told SPMD the petition
had brought home the issue of the
arms race for them. SPMD organized a petition drive in November
asking the Alma Mater Society to
ask student health to stockpile
cyanide pills to allow a quick death
during nuclear war.
Marchant said even if the petition
gathered the necessary 500
signatures required to hold an AMS
referendum, SPMD would still not
have gone ahead with it "if it would
have cost the AMS any money."
The purpose behind the planned
referendum was to get people thinking about the nuclear issue enough
to do something about it. "I think
anything that raises the issue is
good," he said.
Marchant said he does not think
the controversy hurt the club's image. But he added it was beginning
to divert too much attention from
other more important activities
sponsored by the peace organization.
Tuition increases, lack of
funding and most of all qualifications were the most prevalent topics
preached during an all-candidates
meeting Thursday in SUB plaza for
the Alma Mater Society executive
positions students vote for next
Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
Glenna Chestnutt, current AMS
director of administration and a
presidential candidate, said the job
of president is to deal with students
and'listen to them — not only when
in her office, but around campus.
Chestnutt said there are areas
where AMS involvement should be
maintained or increased: promoting
a positive image of UBC to the
community and day-to-day help.
Presidential candidate Mark
Reder said he thinks the AMS is not
a strong enough voice dealing with
the public and the government.
"I'm not a communist, I'm not a
radical or anything like that. I'm a
concerned student, and I wanna
speak about these issues."
Presidential   candidate   Doug
Warkentin said the term "president" sounds really good and
"gives you the kind of a chance to
get the attention of people like
politics and that." Warkentin said
he thought he could get from politicians and government leaders the
best deal for students.
Doug Low, incumbent vice-
presidential candidate, said
students should be concerned with
trust. Addressing the issue of
guaranteeing students they can
finish their programs, Low said
students should ask their candidates
where they stand.
Vice-presidential candidate
Jonathan Mercer said students need
a strong vice-president to stand by
the president's side "and be able to
take on anything the president
might not be able to do."
Finance director candidate Jamie
Collins said he is the most familiar
with the position because he was
assistant finance director last year.

Alberta TAs ill-used and abused
EDMONTON (CUP) — University of Alberta teaching assistants
are poorly paid, ill-treated and used
in place of higher paid sessional lecturers, said members of the univer-.
sity's graduate student council.
Garth Clarke, graduate student
council vice-president of services,
said some department administrators use TAs to teach
classes instead of spending extra
money to hire sessional lecturers.
Clarke said TAs should not teach
courses without a professor's help,
but many are forced to do so
because departments are financially
strapped or tenured professors
refuse to teach large undergraduate
"Teaching assistantships were instituted to help graduate students
financially and to give them some
teaching experience, not to save
departments money," he said.
TAs should be paid the same
amount as sessional lecturers if they
Candidates speak
From page 3
Collins said his combination of
academic and business experience
would be used to help students by
"ensuring that our student societies
are run effectively to the benefit of
all UBC students."
Finance candidate Sylvia Gajdics
said the AMS needs fresh blood,
and she said if elected she will listen
to the needs of all students. "Your
concerns are my concerns.
Together, we can make your dollar
work for you."
Simon Seshadri, the lone candidate for director of administration, said he felt confident running
for the position because he was student administrative commission
secretary this year, and occassional-
ly filled in for the current director.
Patrick Doyle, candidate for external affairs coordinator, said the
issue of funding had been flogged
to death by the other candidates.
"We know we're in an economic
plight right now, and there's really
nothing we can do about it but get
off our duff and try to do
something about the situation."
*" External affairs candidate Kathy
Martin said she is running for externals because she believes in -and
cares about the university.
Lonn Myronuk, the third candidate for the position, said if
students really cared about the
AMS, they should talk to all candidates and ask them questions.
Duncan Stewart, the fourth candidate, said he fought for students
while he was on student council.
Stewart added UBC should look to
the private sector rather than the
provincial government for funding.
Barbara Waldern, the final external affairs candidate, said the position is of an activist nature.
Waldern said she would like to
change the orientation of the AMS
from its current business leanings.

While the university has given
teaching assistants more duties with
no increase in pay, it has also cut
back on the number of graduate
students hired and lowered their
real wages, said graduate student
council president Gary Genosko.
Genosko said the univeristy has
cut back the number of hours from
the highest paid positions from 12
to five or six a week and failed to increase TAs' salaries to keep up with
cost-of-living increases in the past
two years.
Clarke added some graduate
students must perform secretarial
tasks and refuse to speak up for
fear of losing their jobs. "One chair
even has grad students doing typing
for him," Clarke said, "that's illegal."
The university's graduate studies
department says it cannot respond
to TA's concerns because the offending departments are under the
authority of their own faculties.
Administrators and department
heads, however, widely accept that
the problems stem from underfun-
ding and the university's attempts
to cut corners.
Peter Meekinson, administration
vice-president academic, said the
graduate studies budget should be
restored to its former level of three
per cent of the university's
operating budget. It now only
makes up aobut 1.8 per cent.
Meanwhile, at the University of
Toronto, TAs are expected to gear
up for a strike vote in early
February. They have been without a

There are still people in
Vancouver who do not
know who Evelyn Roth is.
It is almost impossible to
miss someone as prolific as
Roth and it will become
even harder by spring of
1986. Evelyn Roth is the official artist-in-residence for
Expo 86.
One of her specialties is turning
herself into a living piece of

Evelyn Roth is dancer, artist,

established 'wearables' as a
legitimate art form as early as 1970.
She has moved on to painting
buckskin shirts and vests, each skin

48-year-old self-taught artist does
not place art on a pedestal.
She has exhibited all over the
world and is considered to be an artist of international status. A Roth

her work and of some of the ideas
which run currently through her
work. Ritual is one such important
"Ritual is a connection of the inner self which allows one to transcend to a higher level of trance,"
said Roth. It seems like most old
cultures have states of enlightenment and "that interests me a lot."
She said, everyday somewhere in
Bali a celebration occurs.
"Everyone always told me you
must go to Bali. It is an island of
people who are totally involved
with ritual. It is absolutely incredible." She explained, for the people
of Bali, life and art are completely
interrelated. "The whole population would strive to train, to im-

because their own life is too exciting.

of my ultimate goals, she said.
Another group of people who have
Roth's esteem are the Aboriginals
in Australia. They too achieve
trance and have many sacred
dances. "Many people whom we
call primitive are the ones who are
most connected to the earth directly
through their bodies, how they
move with the animals and the
rain," she said.
As for the rest of civilization, according to Roth our society lives a
compartmentalized type of life far
removed from nature. "People
don't know if they are hungry or
what they are hungry for," she

one's inner self the needs of the
body and the spirit, many seek
psychiatrists and counsellors.

with your life," she said.
For Roth, music is a great connector of musicians and people
from around the world. The music
which ties into Meeting Place goes
through a long journey during its
hour-and-a-half performance.
"From Africa, mother-earth, carnival, reggae, step-inside-find-a-
reason — and it does get people into
that mood," she said in one breath.
The solution is a connection that
will eventually unite people, she added.
Meeting Place starts with the
Canadian Indian which to Roth
means a mixture of Westcoast
Haida and Plains Indian. She attended the Indian Artist Symposium in Hazelton last year where
she heard Native artists from one
Canadian coast to the. other talk
about the problems of being an artist. "They said their art is not
recognized, there is no category
within Canada Council for Indian
or Native art. Their art falls mostly
into the context of museums." And
yet, she added, this art is very
creative and contemporary, "aside
from having wonderful rituals and
Evelyn Roth has been involved in
Westcoast celebrations for many
years. Joe David, a Nootka from
Vancouver Island, gave Roth the
Indian name of Gla-heeth-nook
meaning rainbow or connecting
link. "To me the name is a pat on
the back, it is an honor, and it is
recognition. This is worth more
than anything," she said.
Given the title of Artist-in-
Residence for the Canada pavilion
at Expo means recognition as an artist in one's own city, said Roth.
"This is the second pat on the back
but to me this is as important as the
name Gla-heeth-nook. It is nice to
be recognized every once in a while,
it says that you're on the right track
all along."
The track of Evelyn Roth maintains that Canada is lacking a feeling of Canada the land, Canada the
people. She said this is not so in
Australia and New Zealand because
there the performing arts use a
touch of the Maori or the flavor of
the Aboriginals. "And so they
know the secrets and the rituals of
the native people and the essence of
the land."
From her experience with the
Natives and the symposium Roth
has the essence of what the Indian
sound and music is going to in this
country. "In Meeting Place, I'm
striving to bring the people
together." Page 6

Zero hour is approaching in The
Killing Fields, a forceful drama that
deals with friendship and survival
while revealing a bizarre and incredible massacre.
It's 1975, the Khmer Rouge, an
army of murderous maniacs ravage
Cambodia, denuding its populace
of seven million to an estimated
four million.
The Killing Fields
directed by Roland Joffe
at The Park
New York Times correspondent
Sydney Schanberg is in Phnom
Penh when the Lon Nol government is toppled with his interpreter
and loyal friend Dith Pran. These
two men and others soon discover
the Khmer Rouge are ruthless in
their relentless reign of terror.
Pran saves Schranberg's life and
the lives of other colleagues in an
intense detente with Khmer Rouge
rebels. The reporters now realize
they have no choice but to leave or
die. Pran is later taken from the
neutral grounds of the French embassy and exiled to the "killing
fields" where a holocaust is about
to occur.
Producer David Puttnam
(Chariots of Fire and Lonely
Hearts) and first time director
Roland Joffe combine their talents
to create this alarming and poignant
motion picture.
As it is non-fiction Puttnam and
Joffe use actors who will not be immediately associated with other
Sam Waterston plays a tough impetuous Sydney Schanberg, a man
dedicated wholly to his career. Dr.
Haing Ngor plays a compelling and
convincing Dith Pran. Ngor relies
on his own harrowing experiences
as an ex-prisoner of the Khmer
Rouge. His acting is bare and unsophisticated and therefore candidly realistic.
Puttnam chooses friendship and
suryival as themes for this deeply
personal story. The survival theme
pervades the film, culminating in
Pran's long struggle as he is subjected to the horrors of the Khmer
The impression of friendship is
not as pervasive. Although Pran
clearly loves Sydney as a brother
Schranberg fails to express such
sensitivity. Waterston conveys only
self-indulgence. He seems unable
to depict a non-fictional character
with faithful realism.
The supporting cast is impressive
with most of the credit due to John
Malkovich who plays Al Rockoff
the freelance photographer. His
cynical attitude and explosive anger
are riveting in the sequence where a
desperate attempt is made to rescue
Pran. In The Killing Fields, his film
debut, Malkovich proves himself an
actor with powerful potential.
Cinematographer Chris Menges
skillfully captures the graceful
mystery that is Thailand where this
story is filmed. To blend well Joffe
has chosen the electronic music of
Mike Oldfield for an eerie and often
disturbing effect.
The film is long, 141 minutes.
But it is difficult to tear your eyes
from the screen as this alarmingly
realistic and often gruesome story
unfolds. It's a film that will pull at
your conscience and leave vivid images in your mind.

(John Moffat), Duke of Illyria.
The Duke is desperately in love
with the fair Olivia (Suzanne

brother, and in her misery has
refused to see or entertain any
suiters. The Duke is very much
disturbed by Olivia's lack of interest.
He decides to win her affections,
but he cannot do it himself. Finally
he decides to send his most loyal
and clever eunuch to do his bidding
for him.
But Viola has herself fallen in

cannot reveal herself, and is forced
by her loyalty for her master to seek
out Olivia and win her love for the
At first, the reclusive Olivia is unwilling to see the Duke's eunuch,

her enough to allow the meeting.
The Countess Olivia is hard on the
disguised Viola.
She teases and persecutes her,
but Viola has done her job well. In
fact, the countess is so impressed
with the young eunuch she decides
to make him her husband.
Meanwhile, the ever gentle sea of
Illyria has washed up another
stranger: Sebastian, the twin
brother of Viola. He bears great
resemblance to his sister and is even
dressed as she is, because Viola even
copied his manner of dress. Sebas-
tion finds, oddly enough, people
seem to know him.
He is shocked to discover there
are men who want to hurt him, and
at the same time, there is a beautiful
damsel who wishes to marry him.
The magic of Illyria seems to favour
him, because Olivia thinking Sebastian is the witty eunuch of the Duke
who has taken her heart insists they
marry, and they do.
The play climaxes with a final
scene where all the characters are
gathered. They discover that there
are two Sebastions not one. The
real Sebastion is married to Olivia,
and the Duke upon realizing that
his dear eunuch is really the lovely
and rich Viola decides to make her
his mistress.
This decision of the Duke of
course makes Viola most happy.
Even the abused Malvolio (Norman
Browning), steward to Olivia, who
was tortured by Olivia's Uncle (Jay
Brazeau) is returned to his
honorable standing.
It is difficult to add to the quality
of a Shakespearean play. The actors
do a fine job, and the play's charm
is very captivating. The costume
and set design also are good.
Perhaps the only criticism one
could have is that in their excitement the actors were sometimes
unable to get the words out clearly.
However, Shakespeare is difficult,
and the actors simply need to slow
down at the most difficult parts.
The play is worth seeing.
Farce fans applause
There were less than a few
moments of silence in the audience
at the Frederic Wood Theatre last
Friday night. The premiere of
Moliere's Imaginary Invalid broght
laughter and applause at every turn.
When the curtain went up, the stage
was set for an evening of humour
and pathos.
The production is played like a
typical domestic farce: the gestures
are broad and sometimes quite exaggerated and the dialogue is
delivered at a quick, almost manic
pace; but the production held
together well and qualifies as an enjoyable theatre-going experience.
At the centre of the farce is
Argan (Simon Webb), a character
who is not only a hypochondriac,
but who remains ill because of his
doctor's care, not in spite of it.
He subjects himself to constant
enemas at the hands of his phar-

macist, not realizing that the
enamas are keeping him sick, not
curing his condition.
In his neurotic pursuit of medical
care he tries to marry his daughter
to a quack medical doctor in the
hopes that he will have a doctor in
the family and won't have to pay
any medical bills.
But his daughter, Angelique
(Laura White) hopes to marry
Cleante (Bruce Dow).
Thomas Offentrot (Bruce Har-
wood), the quack, plays the con-
sumate nerd: conservative, rea-
tionary, bumbling, and ignorant of
new medical techniques.
The play is presented in three
acts, with a short intermission between each act. Of the three acts, the
second shines. The farce element
works best here and the irony of the
dialogue is truly hilarious.
The comedic climax of the second
act occurs when Angelique and
Cleante sing a duet to one another
ridiculing Argan, who is present in
the room.
The third act is disappointing
although Moliere's depiction of
pedantry and the world of academe
is brought sharply into focus and is
criticized and condemned harshly.
The quality of acting in The Imaginary Invalid is very good, but
what is most evident is Mavor
Moore's direction. When watching
the play it is obvious that it is heavily directed; the production is clearly
a director's showcase.
Great attention is paid to detail in
both dialogue and action. But
rather than conveying the sense that
the actors were responsible, we get
the distinct impression this particular interpretation of the play is
very much one person's view.
The characters are almost too
perfect in their comic disguise and it
becomes obvious as the play progresses this is the work of a person
who has an absolute singularity of

Carolyn Soper as Louise. The Imaginary Invalid is excellent and well
worth a look.

Let's make Trek
This week high school students in Kitimat and elsewhere refused
to attend classes. They made this move in an effort to convince the
Socred government more funding for education was needed, and
needed badly. They weren't asking for increases — they merely
wanted spending levels for education kept at last year's levels.
The B.C. government has to listen to these students. Education
at the primary and secondary levels for the most part, is considered
their own responsibility. People would say it is their duty to give
B.C.'s children a basic, standard education.
However, the case is less clear for B.C.'s universities and colleges. True, these institutions are suffering from the same financial
problems as schools at the lower education levels. But unlike
school children students are not obligated by law to register at and
attend a post-secondary institution. The pursuit of higher education is a purely voluntary chase, in the Socreds' eyes, and so post-
secondary education is vulnerable in this province.
It is important for both students and faculty alike to demonstrate
the importance of higher education to this province, and the role
which the government should assume. We do not mean simply as
a source of funds, though that of course is involved, but also as a
creator of opportunities for the people of B.C. to receive a higher
level of knowledge without having to leave their province.
It is for this reason that we endorse the faculty association's
decision to hold another Great Trek. These events have been effective in demonstrating to the public the desperate straits higher
education is in at times in the past.
The New Great Trek may not get us the provincial funding this
university needs to maintain its programs. But it will show to the
rest of B.C. and indeed the rest of Canada, that we will not have
the idea of cuts in our university forced down our throats without
showing our disapproval.
Politicians, even Socreds, tend to remember great public
displays, especially around election time. That may cause them to
remember students vote too, and perhaps the Socreds may reconsider where to cut costs in their budget.
Also, by publicizing our need, it is possible that we may discover
other sources of funding. Sympathetic alumni, or private sector
companies may wish to give students opportunities for learning
which the Socreds currently deny us.
Naturally, all of this is dependent on one thing — the support of
the student. This means you, bub.
If this new Great Trek fails due to apathy, we have only ourselves
to blame. That's why the Great Trek of 1982 failed. We cannot afford to be so apathetic again — the stakes have grown much too
high this time.

Student senators do not just walk
into senate meetings without doing
some basic research on the issues, as
it appears some Ubyssey reporters
do. If the editors had cared to ask
for the full details and the depth of
the decisions facing us I am sure
that student senators would have
been willing to fill them in. It was
not just a question of should we put
this motion forward, but of what
are the consequences if we do.

As for your quote, "The question is whether we're going to represent student interests or not", I said
that and the actual statement was:
"the question is whether we're going to represent these students' interests (referring to the SDU proposal for reinstatement of the 'N'
grade) or not".
This quote was certainly taken
out of context as it appears that I
was talking about the motion to cut
programs which, for the record, I.
voted in favour of. I still maintain
that the 'N' grade should be
abolished as:
1) it penalizes those students who
write an exam and fail because
students who would have received lower marks did not write the
2) students in commerce had an
'N' on their transcript treated as
a zero in the calculation of their
averages and were thus not getting the same treatment as the
rest of the university.
3) adequate provisions already exist for students to drop a course
after the deadline without penalty for medical or compassionate
Student caucus did support the idea
of lengthening the drop-add time
for one term courses, although
there may be practical problems in
getting this implemented.
I hope this clears up some of the
confusion your editorial may have
caused students as to what actually
took place. I urge all students who
are concerned about program cutbacks to write to universities
minister Pat McGeer and express
I urge the Ubyssey to find
another scapegoat and to issue an
apology to student senators who at
least care enough to take time away
from school and social activities to
get involved!

From page 7
recognize him in her madness.
Meanwhile Puritan soldiers are
looking for Arturo.
In this production much of the
suspense is lost because the staging
does not make Arturo look chased.
Elvira becomes temporarily sane
while Arturo explains why he ran
off with the queen. Elvira then goes
nuts again and calls for the soldiers.
The soldiers, joined by Giorgio
and Riccardo, promptly put Arturo
up against a wall to be shot as a
traitor. At this point Elvira regains
her sanity until the end of the opera
and sings with Arturo about how
much they love each other. This
delays the planned execution long
enough for a messenger to arrive
announcing the war is over and
general amnesty is declared.
Everyone is happy except Riccardo
who really wants to kill Arturo, his
rival. This is a change in the script
and it is a realistic choice by the
director. The opera ends with Arturo and Elvira together again.
The best part of the opera is the
singing of the soprano. Arturo is
well played but his part is limited to
two acts alone. The lighting attempts to create the look of a Rembrandt painting, but distracts the
audience by making it difficult to
see the singers. The best costumes
to be found were in the audience.

Elderly need better care
By the year 2030, 21 per cent of
our population will consist of persons 65 years old and older
although today's elderly face
drastic shortcomings in geriatric
medicine, the speaker in the Tenth
Annual John F. McCreary lecture
said Thursday.
Dr. John C. Beck told a capacity
crowd in IRC 2 that "both the
U.S.A. and Canada represent
youth-oriented cultures, and the
term ageism, used in the same sense
as sexism or racism, must be applied
to many of the prevailing attitudes
which exist towards the elderly in
both countries."
In the lecture titled "The Graying
North America", Dr. Beck
presented several issues he said
cross all professional minds, including:
• difficulties defining and measuring the health of the elderly.
• difficulties   diagnosing   disease
and illness in the elderly.
"The demographic transition
which has produced this substantially increased proportion of elderly in the U.S.A. and Canada has.
ushered in an era of much greater
concern for the aged," Dr. Beck
Problems with health in the elderly become more difficult to
recognize than problems with
health in younger persons, he said.
Diseases do not similarly manifest
themselves and there are co-existing
multiple conditions, he said.
And the elderly themselves are
hesitant to seek health care due to
fear of hospitals, he added. Dr.
Beck said the elderly also share
society's view that disease is a part
of ageing.
"Complex relationships exist between physical health, mental
health, and social economic
states." Dr. Beck said self-
assessment of health in the elderly
seems to be linked to economic
Dr. Beck said to improve
geriatric medicine instruments better suited for judging the elderly's
health are needed, along with a new
taxonomy system describing
diseases exclusive to the elderly, and
geriatric assessment units. But these
are always overshadowed by the
spectre of government cutbacks, he
The lecture was simultaneously
broadcast to St. Paul's, Vancouver
General, and Children's Hospital.
