Array 'Guidelines apply to UBC
Federal government wage
guidelines will apply to wages and
salaries of B.C. university and
college employees, B.C. finance
minister Dave Stupich said
Thursday.
"I expect the guidelines would
apply to university salaries," he
told The Ubyssey in a telephone
interview from Victoria.
"The wage guidelines will apply
to everybody except people
negotiating on 1974 contracts," he
said. "I assume those people
(negotiating current contracts)
are caught and are looking for an
exceptional circumstance."
However, Stupich said he cannot
comment     more     specifically
because he is "foundering around
like everybody else."
He said a meeting of provincial
finance ministers in Ottawa next
week should clarify the legislation,
which had first reading in
parliament Thursday.
But   Stupich   did   say   the  ap
plication of the guidelines "would
have an effect on their (universities') budgets."
"If less money is going to
salaries, it could mean more
money going to other university
programs," he said.
"I'm sure there are other things
the universities can do with that
money," Stupich said.
B.C. Universities Council
chairman William Armstrong said
if limits are enforced "several
millions of dollars" could be freed
for new programs.
He said budget submissions for

BCSFers get 'salad' date service
ByMARCUSGEE
Of course the B.C. Students'
Federation is fighting sexism. Of
course student leaders today are
liberated. Ask Cariboo College
student president Hap Watson.
Watson said Thursday he will
offer a dating service to BCSF
delegates at their annual meeting
Nov. 20 on the Kamloops campus.
Interested BCSF reps have only
to send "specifications" of the
ideal person he or she would like to
date and Watson said he will match
them with a consenting Cariboo
student.
"If they just send us their
shopping list we will take it from
there. We have a real salad up
here; the girls are really
something.
"Whatever your preference, we
could match you up. If you are tall
there are some really good looking
girls here who are six feet six."
Watson said he is not providing
prostitutes to delegates because "if
they want that they can go
downtown."
He said he will soon begin interviewing  women  interested  in
dating delegates so he can match
delegates' requests.
The idea for a dating service
started as a joke he made at a
BCSF conference in September,
Watson said.
But the idea became serious
when several BCSF reps phoned
asking for dates at the conference,
he said.
Watson said the dating service is
not sexist because both male and
female delegates would be supplied with dates on request.
"After all it is a free country.
Women's lib is taking hold," he
said.
"There was a girl from Nanaimo
who took offence at the idea (at the
September BCSF conference) but
she is probably a prude anyway."
The Cariboo student union will
provide bands and a night club for
delegates and dates after the
conference's daily business is
finished, Watson said.
But he said what the couples do
when together is "their own
business."
"Business is business,  but up
here we are used to having a good
time."
However, UBC reps to the
November conference will not
accept dates, BCSF executive
member Lake Sagaris said
Thursday. Sagaris is also former
Alma Mater Society co-ordinator.
"We   will   certainly   not   par
ticipate in this (dating service),"
she said. But Sagaris also said she
would not state her opinion of the
dating service.
Watson said he will receive
requests for dates by telegram or
letter but they must come soon.
"This conference will certainly be
a good time," he said.
B.C.'s three public universities,
sent to Victoria Wednesday as
required by the B.C! Universities
Act, will have to be modified in
light of the new federal guidelines.
"I'm happy to hear anything said
on salaries going for some other
purposes," he said.
"If the salary increases are
limited to 10 per cent, quite a few
million dollars in the budget will be
freed," he said.
But Armstrong said he hasn't
been able to confirm exactly how
the federal guidelines will affect
university budgets and that he, too,
is awaiting the meeting of
provincial finance ministers in
Ottawa next week for further information.
Stupich said he "doesn't foresee
a general budget cut" for the
universities but added he is not
sure whether the budget would
increase from last year's amount.
"I don't know to what extent the
budgets will be able to increase,"
he said.
Stupich suggested that any
money in the budget diverted from
anticipated wage and salary increases could be used to hire more
staff, purchase more supplies, or
"alternative expenditures."
Administration president Doug
Kenny reacted strongly Thursday
to the possibility of UBC's budget
remaining at last year's level.
Kenny said it would be
"disastrous" if the budget is not
increased and said the university
would have to "postpone needs."
But he also said it would be
premature to speculate on the
effects of the legislation until the
budget requests of the three
universities receive cabinet approval.
In Ottawa, meanwhile, a
spokesman for the federal
government's anti-inflation review
board said Thursday the effects of
the wage and price legislation
depend on the reactions of the
provinces.
"Education is strictly a
provincial matter," the spokesman
said. "But we are asking the
provinces to co-operate in the
federal program, either by participating directly in the federal
plan or by setting up their own
matching system."
But, if the provinces agree to
participate (as Stupich indicated
B.C. would), not only would wage
and salary increases be restrained,
tuition, residence fees and other
institutional costs to the student
will be allowed to increase in accordance with federal guidelines,
the spokesman said.
The spokesman said the review
board intends to establish a public
sector panel consisting of appointees from the federal and
provincial governments.
This federal-provincial body will
have the power to monitor and
control wage and price increases in
the public sector, the spokesman
said.
Body identified as Lowther
Police have identified the body
found Monday near Squamish as
that of Pat Lowther, poet and UBC
lecturer who disappeared Sept. 24.
The badly-decomposed body was
found in a few feet of water in
Furry Creek, near Britannia
Beach, by a sports fisherman. It
was identified through use of
dental charts.
Foul play is suspected.
A Vancouver police spokesman
said Thursday no cause of death
has been established because of the
badly-decomposed state of the
body.
But he said the skull was badly
fractured and police think Lowther
was severely beaten about the
head shortly before her death.
Investigators believe Lowther
died shortly after her disappearance.
She was last seen by her husband
Roy Lowther on the morning of
Sept. 24, in Vancouver. According
to him she left for Victoria but was
never reported seen again.
She was missed when she failed
to appear at a lecture at UBC Sept
25, and a reading of her poetry the
following day.
But husband Roy Lowther did
not report her missing to police
until Oct. 7 because he said it was
not unusual for her to leave suddenly on short notice.
But Andrew Wregitt, a student in
Lowther's creative writing class at
UBC, said at the time that Lowther
seemed to be suffering from
personal problems of some sort
before her disappearance.
And Fran Diamond, creative
writing departmental secretary,
echoed the sentiments.
She said Lowther was called
from her class Sept. 11 to take a
phone call, and the call seemed to
upset her a great deal.

UBC trolleys proposed
B.C. Hydro work crews are
standing by with picks, shovels,
bulldozers and other implements of
destruction, ready to pounce on
University Boulevard and transform it into a tangle of trolley
lines.
But Alma Mater Society vice-
president Dave van Blarcom said
Thursday the nine-month installation program is being held up
because Hydro hasn't been able to
receive approval from UBC's
board of governors and the
University Endowment Lands
administration.
The trolleys would start at the
Blanca loop and end near SUB and
Empire Pool.
UBC physical plant director
Neville Smith said Thursday the
trolley installation is being delayed
because a decision hasn't been
made on the exact location for the
Western terminal.
"The question of the (covered)
pool is related," Smith said. "Until
it is decided where the terminus is
to go, it's no use putting in the
trolley.
"The original plan put aside the
Empire pool parking lot for a
terminal, but the plan has to be
reconfirmed," Smith said.
But Alma Mater Society vice-
president Dave Van Blarcom said
Hydro is willing to talk to the
university administration before
the terminal problem is settled.
He said Tom Parkinson, a
spokesman for the bureau of
transit services, also told him the
project would involve a large-scale
digging up of University Boulevard
so feeder cables could be installed.
Van Blarcom said Parkinson is
working on a proposal to improve
lighting on the boulevard by installing lamp standards.
10 acre lunar homesteads sell quickly
in great California moondoggle
SANTA CLARA (ENS-CUP) -
Looking for a little spot of country
land away from the hustle and
bustle of urban life?
Well, if you really want to get
"away from it all, Mike Mason of
Santa Clara, Cal., will sell you a 10-
acre parcel of real estate on the
moon, complete with a government-approved deed for suitable
framing.
Mason, founder of a company
called Green Cheese Enterprises,
says he has sold more than 100
parcels of lunar real estate for $5 a
piece since he started the venture
recently.
He says he spent hours pouring
over lunar geological maps to
scout out the most desirable
locations in such wonderlands as
the Sea of Tranquility, the Sea of
Fertility or the Copernicus
Quadrangle, which, he advises,
"has the nicest looking craters."
Says Mason: "You could build a
lot of gas stations there, not to
mention a McDonald's, if you could
afford the franchise."
Pacific Press rolls again
after LRB settles dispute
In preparation for the great
moon sale, Mason even consulted a
battery of real estate lawyers who
advised him how to stay out of
legal trouble.
Consequently, the deeds, which
look authentic enough, are clearly
bogus. He even refers to the enterprise as "the biggest bogus
bonanza in real estate history."
Mason thereby avoided the legal
skirmishes that befell another
lunar real estate agent in San
Francisco. Barrie McAilster was
recently busted by local authorities
for not having the proper permits
to sell land on the moon.
Why go to the bother? "I'd like to
make a million dollars," says
Mason.
Production at Pacific Press
returned to normal Thursday after
a union typesetter fired for
refusing to handle an electronically-produced editorial was
reinstated.
Publication of Thursday's
Province was delayed seven hours
and appeared in an abbreviated
form. The Sun was not affected
except for the loss of some
classified ads.
Agreement was reached at 3
a.m. Thursday between Pacific
Press        and        International
Typographical Union representatives after Labor Relations Board
vice-chairman Ed Peck was called
in to mediate the dispute.
The fired typesetter, Gary Anderson, refused Wednesday to
paste up a Sun editorial typeset on
a newly-installed video display
terminal, which is part of Pacific
Press' new electronic production
system.
Other ITU members refused to
work after Anderson was fired and
remained off the job until
agreement was reached and Anderson was reinstated.

Program 'Hallowe'en stunt'
CANADIAN
UNIVERSITY PRESS
OTTAWA — What will be the
impact of the federal government
wage controls on universities and
colleges in Canada?
Rick Deaton, spokesman for the
Canadian Union of Public Employees, which represents more
than 10,000 university and college
staff, said on Thursday the 10 per
cent wage freeze meant members
of his union would 'get the gears
put to them' in upcoming contract
talks.
He said the federal 'guidelines'
will likely apply to most post-
secondary institutions, since most
employed more than 500 persons,
and predicted that university
administrators will welcome the
wage restraints as a way of controlling costs.
CUPE national president Stan
Little has already described the
government's economic program
as a Hallowe'en stunt in which the
Student reps
meet to
decide nil
By RALPH MAURER
Student representatives on the
university board of governors,
senate and Alma Mater Society
council met informally Thursday
in an effort to improve communication and co-ordinate aims
among students on the three
bodies.
But ho concrete policies for
students to pursue were arrived at
during the meeting.
The meeting anticipates, in
format at least, the kind of
meetings that could take place
regularly under the proposed new
constitution of the AMS.
The constitution proposes that
student council consists of student
board and senate members and
undergraduate society reps.
However, less than a dozen reps
showed up at the Thursday
meeting.
They discussed a proposal by
several student senators to call for
changes in the Universities Act to
allow student board and senate
elections to be run by law students.
Under the current- act the
university registrar runs the
elections but, according to some
interpretations of the act, he has
the power to delegate this
authority to another institution.
Student senator Ron Walls, who
recently presented a notice of
motion to senate recommending
changes in the act, said support for
the motion from students at the
Thursday meeting was unanimous.
He said he is also trying to get
registrar Jack Parnall to delegate
responsibility for the elections
before the act changes so the
elections, expected late in
January, 1976, can be run by
students.
Students also expressed support
for another motion to establish
public course evaluation
procedures.
However, opinion was divided on
other issues.
At the last senate meeting, Walls
presented notice of motion to
abolish any mention of the sex of
the candidate in university
scholarship descriptions.
Most university scholarships-,
which must be approved by senate
and the board before being offered,
specify whether a scholarship is
for men or women.
However, several students,
including board members Rick
Murray and Svend Robinson, said
rather than end any mention of
sex, the university should offer
scholarships specifically for
women in male-dominated studies
and vice-versa.
workers get the "trick" and the
employers the "treat."
CUPE's official position,
however, on whether to fight or
buckle under the controls won't be
decided until the upcoming
national conference in Toronto
planned for Monday.
The Canadian Association of
University Teachers reacted to the
federal plan by pointing out that
universities come under provincial
jurisdiction, and by questioning
whether the guidelines would be
made to apply to them.
CAUT executive secretary
Walter  Sim  said  university ad
ministrators may welcome the 10
per cent maximum wage increase
allowed under the program, given
their present financial problems
and the fact that more than 75 per
cent of their operating expenses
are taken up by salaries and
wages.
"But this would be true only if
the provinces decide to apply the
guidelines to universities," he
stressed.
If they do apply, Sims said the
effect. will be to freeze faculty
salaries relative to salaries outside
the post-secondary sector.
"Faculty   salaries   which   are
already lagging behind wouldn't be
rectified," Sim said.
Pay increments based on faculty
promotions, however, won't be
affected, he added.
The Association of Universities
and Colleges of Canada, the
national organization of university
administrators, took a slightly
different approach.
According to 'spokeswoman
Rosemary Cavan: "While
universities come under provincial
jurisdiction, they do not come
under provincial control."
She said AUCC was not sure if
the guidelines will apply to the
"autonomous" university sector or
their employees. She was also
uncertain if faculty "would want to
be described as employees."
Whatever collective response the
universities might want to make
regarding the restraint program
will be decided at the upcoming
national conference planned by
AUCC for the end of the month.
Notwithstanding the decisions of
the provinces, Cavan said, the
university presidents "will likely
make a statement independent of
any provincial prompting."

UBC commerce prof hits rent controls
By GREGG THOMPSON
Rent controls are unworkable
as a means of dealing with housing
problems in Canada, a UBC
commerce and business administration professor claimed
Thursday.
David Baxter said in an interview that a primary complaint
of rent controls is that they are
discriminatory in their protection
of tenants.
Baxter, along with faculty
associate S.W. Hamilton, has
recently published a report on rent
controls for the Appraisal Institute
of Canada.
"Rent controls don't always
cover those who need protection,"
said Baxter.
"On the other hand, some
tenants who are really well off
receive protection they don't really
need," he said.
"As it stands, the present system
represents a rather random
distribution of benefits."
Baxter said another drawback to
rent controls is that they provide
no incentive to investors to build
rental units.
"Over the past few years social
pressures have led to construction
of home-ownership units," he said.
"People have had lots of money
and generous government
financial support and they have
bought homes.
"Demand for rental housing was
low, and prices were stable. But
now      with      home-ownership
financially out of reach and with
population pressures mounting for
increasing numbers of people,
demand is increasing for rental
accommodation.
"But that demand isn't being
met because developers are
prevented by the rent controls
from regaining their capital investments.
"If a company builds a unit and
then is told how much it can be
rented for, then that company will
sell the unit — or not build it at
all," Baxter said.
The paradox is that while rent
controls protect a few groups of
tenants, they are at the same time
causing housing shortages, Baxter
said.
Baxter predicted that if rent
controls are not eliminated, social
deterioration may be the result.
"Certainly it will become increasingly difficult to find rental
accommodation," he said.
"One might expect higher costs
for accommodation-finding
agencies, payments to vacating
tenants from prospective ones,
kickbacks and that sort of thing."
Another socio-economic cost
would be lack of maintenance and
upkeep, Baxter said.
"Poor maintenance is not a short
term issue really," he said.
"But in 30 years or so you suddenly realize that you have a slum
on your hands. We have to think not
only of ourselves but also of future
tenants," he said.
While Baxter said he advocates
disbanding of rent controls, he said
they should be dropped gradually.
"We don't know what the market
pressures are underneath. Some
rents would undoubtedly soar
while others would remain unchanged. Some might increase but
probably at a rate of less than 10
per cent."
He said the best way to drop rent
controls would be to - gradually
reduce them over a period of two,
three or even five years.
"At the present time, units over
$500 per month are exempt from
the legislation," he said. "But a
year from now we could make
BAXTER ... random benefits
units costing over $400 per month
exempt. I think that would be
fair," said Baxter.
As an alternative method of
aiding tenants, Baxter said he
would support some form of income supplement program.
"Tenants could receive some
sort of, financial assistance
although I don't think it should
necessarily be tied to housing,"
Baxter said..
- He said another alternative for
students in the UBC area would be
to have access to legal suites in
Point Grey and Dunbar.
Body was
concealed
From page 1
Diamond said the caller was a
woman and had left a name but she
could no longer remember- it.
Cpl. Frank Kelly of the Squamish
RCMP said Lowther's body had
apparently been concealed under
the waters of Furry Creek and was
discovered caught on a rock when
the water level in the creek
dropped during the last few days.
Kelly said the area where the
body was found is a favorite
dumping off spot of Lower
Mainland murderers for their
victims.
Lowther was a part-time lecturer at UBC since she was hired in
July. She has published four acclaimed volumes of poetry and was
preparing two more at the time of
her death.
She is survived by her husband

Keep B.C.
rent controls
Eliminate rent controls in B.C.?
Absurd.
A report on^he controls published by two UBC profs
actually claims rent controls are an unworkable means of
dealing with Canada's housing problems.
But what's the problem — high rents?
Certainly not.
Rent controls are intended to protect tenants from
exploitation by landlords who charge ridiculously high rents.
Those are the rents that don't always go into improving the
building but rather into the landlord's fat bank account.
The .problem is a lack of good, reasonably priced
accommodation — a situation which existed long before" rent
controls.
Why won't people invest in apartment building-and the
like?
Because rising land costs and construction costs cut
severely into their bloated profits. No reason why they
couldn't build — they just wouldn't make as much.
Rent controls were instituted to protect the innocent
tenants from gouging when accommodation became tight
because of reduced building.
The controls won't solve the problem. Elimination of
greedy people.will.

I was so repulsed by your
ignorant, sexist views exhibited in
the article on sexual assaults in
Thursday's Ubyssey I decided to
sacrifice an hour of study time in
an attempt to straighten you out.
You say you will not take any
action until you hear more specific
complaints. Do you expect all the
womeji who have been assaulted to
line up outside your office so that
you can hear the morbid details?
After reading the views -you expressed in The Ubyssey article, no
woman would be crazy enough to
come to you for help.
You go on to say that no one has
told you which sections of the
campus are dangerous. Must all
comments to you be vocalized? All
you had to do was glance at the
front page of Oct. 2 Ubyssey (incase you haven't been told, that's
the newspaper put out by the
university which you help to run)
and each of these sections are
listed in clear, legible print.
According, to _you, neither the
RCMP not health services feel
there are a great number of attacks of violence. I don't doubt that
— nobody has ever tried to rape a
police force or a hospital.
Being acquainted with the incompetency of the UBC administration and the stories of how
the law. treats rape victims, most
women will turn to a more suitable
organization  (Rape Crisis  for
• example) for help, or will decide to
keep their problems to themselves.
The most ludicrous statement
you made has to be ". . . but then I
don't have the normal female
perception of what is dark."
Webster's dictionary defines dark
as, "shaded; obscure; concealed;
gloomy; absent of light." Sorry,
they don't differentiate between a
male's or female's idea of dark.
I will quote you further. "Of
course it might be possible to find
money in a contingency fund this
year if the problem becomes really
serious." What in God's name do
you consider to be serious? Is it hot
enough that every woman on
campus is more afraid of walking
around campus after dark than
they would be in some of the worst
areas of downtown?
Must every woman attending
this university be assaulted before
you take steps to alleviate this
problem? If you don't like the idea
of improved lighting, an alternate
solution might be to supply us all
with a can of mace.
Really Mr. Vogt, as vice-
president in charge of student
services, don't you think it's time
you got out of your nice, padded
chair and became more involved
with the student body? That's the
only way I can think of for you to
get some idea of what's going on at
this university. To coin an old
expression: "Shape up or ship
out."

In regard to your bicycle
editorial of Oct. 2, I must agree
with your conclusions, but disagree
with your arguments.
Bikers may be a nuisance to
motorists, but it is a role forced
onto the cyclist. Confronting a 2,000
pound car with a 30 pound bicycle
is not an act undertaken lightly.
Cyclists do try to go out of their
way to give cars the right of way
(self preservation being what it is),
but at 8:27 a.m. at.University Blvd.
and Wesbrook, it is sometimes
impossible.
What we do need-is a car-free
cycle path to campus, but with
attitudes like your ("Put them
back on the dirt paths or whatever .
. .")" I'm afraid this may be a long
time in coming.
Cycling in the mud on a rainy
day (yes, bikers do cycle when the
sun isn't out!) is not my idea of fun
or safety, and "whatever" never
did seem to work out.
Cyclists and motorists must act
together to get car-free bicycle
routes to campus.

Theessen
It seems that Alma Mater
Society treasurer Dave Theessen
misjudged student interest in the
visit of Moshe Dayan to this
campus as evidenced hy the fact
that over 700 students paid 50c each
to hear his address on Monday.
In the Sept. 11 issue of The
Ubyssey Theessen stated that, "it
was decided that Dayan's visit
would not generate enough interest
to draw a crowd" because "Dayan
is not that important a person" and
therefore on Theessen's recommendation inclusion of Dayan in
the AMS speaker's program and
consequent financial support was
"canned."
We wonder if Theessen's
decision really had the student
interest in mind. Perhaps he
honestly had never heard of Moshe
Dayan, the six-day war or even the
Middle East. We are being
facetious because we cannot understand Theessen's lack of insight
into student response to the Dayan
visit.
Part of our AMS fee goes to the
speakers' program and we are
disturbed'' by the fact that the
administrator of this fee
(Theessen)    can   make   such   a
grossly inaccurate policy decision.
We suggest that he study Stanbury's Framework for Policy
Analysis in Commerce 492 to see
where he went wrong — for he
surely did and in our minds, with
no valid justification.
Theessen is not doing his job
when a university club and outside
sources have to provide a service
to UBC students for which they
have already allocated funds.

Rings
In your recent bookstore attacks
why not mention the big UBC ring
rip-off. I received a ring last year
as a grad present which was worth.
$48 (including the five per cent ring
day special.)
As a fifth year transfer student in
education, on a recent observation
practicum I saw the same design
ring for $34.
For the stone I chose and some
engraving this would rise to $40.
Methinks I'm the culprit
responsible for part of the
bookstore profits. Accidents do
happen and I hope the money is
given to a drunk sailor to spend (or
any municipal, federal and
provincial government — there're
all the same).
Ah! The answer has just struck.
UBC students have more to spend
on luxuries than do high school
students. Let's be quiet, pay our
luxury tax and get back to our
monopoly game.
Take a free ride ...

Centre
An article published Oct. 10
which concerned a campus rape
centre feasibility student contained information that is incorrect.
Rape Relief is an organization
which helps women in the Vancouver region who have been •
sexually assaulted. A crisis line is
open 24 hours a day and trained
councillors provide immediate
emotional support.
If a victim wishes to have
someone with her after the attack
or during the medical or legal
procedures which she may decide
to undergo, a counsellor will go out
to the woman.
Thus the statement made by
Lake Sagaris that Rape Relief is
"too far away to help university
women who have to get there after
being raped" is just not correct.
For the record Rape Relief is
located at Oak and Broadway and
maintains a small library with
books and articles on the issue of
rape.
There is no doubt that rape is a
problem on campus and the
university administration should
do its part to help alleviate it.
Improving the lighting on
campus is important, as. well as
providing information meetings
and self-defence programs as
Sagaris suggests.
However the setting up of a rape
crisis centre on campus would only
duplicate the services of existing
Rape Relief organizations.

Reply
In its issue last Thursday The
Ubyssey lifted several statements
which I made'to Marcus Gee out of
context and, as a result, gave the
incorrect impression that I am
indifferent to violence and rape on
the campus and the people who are
concerned about them.
The Ubyssey has a long tradition
for providing caricatures of
people, particularly those involved
in administration and one must
admire the professionalism with
which this is done, even when one
is the subject. However, the matter
of interest here is a rather sensitive one and perhaps it is useful
to correct some erroneous impressions.
I did say to your reporter that I
would be very willing to meet with
any group that perceived dangers
on the campus and that I would try
conscientously to pinpoint where
the problems lay and to discuss
possible solutions. Specific
suggestions about problems and
solutions are, of course, much
more helpful than a mere
statement that dangers exist.
When asked about measures that
might be . taken by the administration of the university, I did
say that a number of measures had
been taken in the past and that it
would be very sympathetic to
considering further measures at
this time.

Quotes from a magazine called Cosmetics
Handbook, professional edition. It is
published by a company called DM (Drug
Merchandizing).
The magazine is all but given away to
druggists in Canada; but you can buy a copy
for $3 if you're interested in what is being
said by drug merchants, to the people who
buy their drugs from them, in order to sell
those drugs to us, the great consumers.
If, on the chance that someone in a foreign
land wanted to find out what kind of legit
drug action there was in Canada, the
magazine would cost him $25 per year. Why
should someone in a foreign country want to
know what we buy across the counters of our
own drugstores? What would that tell him
about us?
We think that we have stumbled across
the last word in arrogant character
assassination of the great consumer. The
drug merchants see us this way:
"Quite a proportion of men use their
cologne just as automatically as they use
their toothbrush . . . but there is still a vast
number of males^who do not go quite so far
down the toiletry path as this "
Down where?
"The male has not the same attitude as
the female toward toiletries. Her entire aim
has been to stand out in the crowd. The male
has the opposite ambition, he wants to be
like everybody else. Today's liberated male
... is continuously looking for new ways to
improve or change his image. He is
demanding more sophisticated products."
GET A.FRAGRANCE AND BE COOL.
"Women were probably the first to introduce men to toiletries. They probably
bought him his first cologne and his aftershave." The truth comes out. It was women
who turned us all into aqua-velva junkies.
The rats. The women were probably
thinking: He dont stink so good. Splash him
with something to make him tolerable for
sparkin'.
Cosmetics handbook accused women of
being"fickle: "Today's male is not as fickle
about toiletries as his female counterpart.
He does not feel the need to change his
fragrance to express his every mood" like
She does, "he does not demand an aroma to
wear while playing his favorite sport," like
she does, "he does not require yet another
fragrance to co-ordinate with his new tweed
suit" like she does.
"But" here it comes gents "will he move
in that direction?" Will he become as fickle
as she? "Who would dare say he won't? It's
not so long ago that many would have
laughed at the idea of men wearing their
hair as long and sometimes longer than
their female partner, of wearing elevated
colored footwear.
"And if this is what the future holds, then
an entire new concept of the men's toiletry
marketplace could unfold."
There is a photo of a rough-looking dude in
a rat-neck sweater. He is patting something
on his face. Then there is a photo of a longhaired sophisticated cat in a tux who has
somebody crying on his shoulder while he
only grins and looks spacey.
The drug merchants are hoping women
will buy us things to make us all smell alike.
They believe we want to be like everyone
else, sophisticated. If they had their way we
all would be running around in crimson
elevator shoes with hair down to our ass,
just a bunch of potential markets for
stinkum. So watch out when your girlfriend
slips you that first hit of her wild irish rose.

Don't look for it to happen too soon but we

available to him. He could keep himself
from getting killed by some raver if he just
declares: if my policies don't work I will
commit hara-kiri at the end of my term of
office.
Ford #2:
Sources close to the garden told us that
there is a move afoot to make a citizens
arrest on Ford's kid. His father may praise
his son's honesty all he wants; but the guy
admitted that he smokes narcotics.
Since when has there been one law for
president's kids that says he gets to smoke
narcotics if he is honest about it, and a
different law for those other guys who were
honest when the judge said "how do you
plead."
If he plead honesty like Ford's kid he
didn't get praised by his father, he got put
behind bars.
Arrest Ford's kid for being a dope fiend
and call it a test case9 That would be a first.
Has he ever smoked narcotics in the White
House? Maybe he found Thomas Jefferson's
stash.

One cannot, of course, guarantee
that each suggestion will be acted
upon — some suggestions could
involve great expense and a
doubtful amount of protection —
but I think that a considerable
amount can be done.
The president's office will certainly try to remain responsive to
any suggestions which it receives
about this matter and I personally
would like to contribute in any way
I can toward making the campus
safer.
I hate to temper anyone's enjoyment of the caricature by this
statement of my attitudes which
corresponds, I believe, to what I
said to Gee. My concern is not my

instance, the caricature might
inhibit useful suggestions coming
forward from the many people who
are sensitive about the matter.

AUCE
As a member of the Association
of University and College employees negotiating team,
representing the clerical and
library staff on campus, I felt your
recent article dealing with the
Rand formula-type union which the
university is proposing for us needs
a little clarification.
The university's first proposal
was an actual Rand formula union,
in which a new employee would not
be required to join the union,
merely pay to the union an amount
equivalent to the union dues, but
would not be a member (i.e., they
could not vote on union issues.)
Later the university proposed an
"amended" Rand formula in-
which all new employees would be
required to join the union, but after
one year any employee could opt
out of the union and not be
dismissed.
The university says that this kind
of formula is more "democratic"
in that new employees should not
be forced to join the union as a
condition of employment, that such
a condition is a restriction en their
"freedom of choice."
•Well, admittedly, that sounds
very good. Eighteen months ago I
felt just that way about unions
myself. But the day-to-day reality
of working for the university back
then (and far into the past) was
such that 1200 urtion-haters faced
the sad fact that the only way the
clerical and library staff on this
campus, was ever going to get
decent living wages and good
working conditions was to form
their own bargaining unit.
We have one salaried employee
in our union structure and that
individual must take a leave of
absence from the university to run
the union office. Our executive
committee, contract committee
and grievance committee are all
volunteers who are elected by the
membership and perform their
duties for free. "
As just one member who has put
in several hundred hours of my
own free time after work and
during weekends to prepare the
contract we are negotiating, I get
just a little put off with the
righteousness the university
displays on behalf of its potential
employees when it clearly doesn't
give a 'damn about the ones it's
already got.
On behalf ofthe negotiating team
as a whole, I can safely say that we
feel being part of AUCE has given
the clerical and library staff rights
and freedoms they have never had
before, and a voice for the first

Feminist says anger bad
By MICHELINE TAYLOR
The only real freedom for women
today is achieved through total
awareness, feminist Diana Alstad
said Thursday. _^_
Speaking to a small group in the
SUB art gallery, Alstad stressed
the need for women to understand
the conditioning element in society
which promotes male supremacy
and rigid sex roles for men and
women alike.
"Strong, angry reactions are
destructive,"1 said Alstad. "Women
must not react violently to female
suppresion but must channel their
energies   in  a   more   productive
manner to achieve self-interests."
Total awareness of conditioning,
reactions and self-interests is
needed to achieve equality with
men, Alstad said.

Women's year protest set
OTTAWA — (CUP) — International Women's Year in
Canada may have lauded and
applauded females across the
nation, but "the rights of these
women have not been assured and
their needs have not been met,"
says the Ottawa Women's Centre
collective.
To protest the lack of effective
government action on women's
issues, the Ottawa Women's
Centre, together with other
women's groups and interested
organizations such as CARAL,
Voice of Women, Gays of Ottawa
and Women's Career Counselling,
is organizing a march Oct. 25, to
coincide with the federal government's announcement of its
achievements this year on behalf
of Canadian women.
The march will protest ineffective and extravagant spending
in lieu of acting upon equal pay for
equal work; access to free quality
child care; safe, effective birth
control for all; and equal job opportunities.
The Ottawa Women's Centre has
initiated a telephone campaign to
encourage women's groups across
the country to support the Ottawa
march in front of the supreme
court by sending delegates and
organizing local marches on the
same date.
Because a show of national
solidarity would be extremely
effective, protest organizers
suggest letters or telegrams of
support and/or financial contributions will be useful.
Other neglected issues of concern include equal rights in
marriage and 'property law,

About $5 million (or 50 cents for
every female Canadian) has been
spent by the federal government on
International Women's Year.
"Much of this money has gone
into setting up the IWY Secretariat

campaigns and conferences," says
the Ottawa collective, asking how
this benefits the working mother
with poor daycare facilities in her
area, the university graduate who
cannot find a job unless she types,
or the female worker who is paid
less than her male counterpart.
"Most of us would rather this
public display of concern be

solutions," says the collective.
movement has been greatly hindered in the past because of
numerous internal splits, lack of
total awareness and violent
reactive  movements,"  she  said.
The reason it took so long for the
women's movement to spread was
because women were bound up in
the "feudal-type security" of home
and babies, she said.
With the advent of birth control
and other liberating factors,
women started to become aware of
the suppression and started to fight
it, she added.
Alstad said she is a "feminist
radical, a woman who has total
awareness."
She said radicalism is not a
violent reaction to an existing
institution, caused by anger or
frustration. But Alstad said she has
learned that radicalism is wanting
social change by "clear communication" with men.
She defined "clear communication" as expressing ideas to
someone else who has total
awareness.
Eastern religions helped her
develop her own concept of total
awareness, said Alstad, who
practices yoga.
Alstad said she believes people
must see others' interests as well
as their own in order to be totally
aware.

Eskimo heritage alive
By RICHARD YATES
This book is based on a
manuscript which a seventy-two
year old Eskimo sent, unsolicited,
to an author living in Montreal. It
was the old man's way of trying to
preserve what is unique about the
Eskimo and his heritage.
The book is composed of this
manuscript interspersed with
material gathered from one
hundred fifty hours of taped interviews which were made to fill
out the manuscript material.
People From Our Side
by Peter Pitseolak
Hurtig Publishers
1975. $8.95
■ -~~- p
A selection of over one hundred
photographs taken by the author is
included. The photos are especially
valuable since Pitseolak was one of
the earliest Eskimo photographers. His collection covers the
changes in Eskimo life from the
late thirties up to the end of the
sixties.
All this holds the promise of a
very rewarding and enjoyable
book. Sadly it falls far shy of this.
The book suffers both from a
diffuseness of narration and a
nearly unintelligible translation.
The old man's story exemplifies
one of the key characteristics of
story-telling in an oral society: it is
repetitious. At the same time it
attempts to blend together the
many stories that make up the
personal history of Peter Pitseolak
and his people. Unfortunately he
has not mastered the art of composing many small tales into a long
story, so his writing appears diffuse. This has neither been
corrected nor dealt with constructively by the editors. Instead
they have compounded the
problem by inserting oral material
between the written material
without too much regard for the
pace or direction of the narrative.
The gravest fault of this book lies
with its translator. Pitseolak's
Eskimo language has been transformed into a pidgin English.
This in turn distorts the reader's
perceptions, so that it is quite
difficult to see the Eskimo as
anything but a people who speak a
stilted, simplistic language that is
on the stylistic level of a second
grade reader.
Despite these problems, the book
does have some interest for the
potential reader. Its photographs
give illustrations of Eskimo life
that no story could hope to evoke.
The personalities discussed in the
text can be matched to their
photos. This is especially valuable
because it allows us to see Pitseolak's family not as "Eskimos,"
but as distinct personalities who
find expression in the Eskimo
culture.
The naive reader will probably
gain no profound insight into the
Eskimo society from this book.
Only from time to time are the
special aspects of the Eskimo
culture put into a context that
makes them meaningful for us.
What the narrative does provide is
a personal feeling for the Eskimo's
life as reflected through the eyes of
Peter Pitseolak and his family's
history.
The themes of marriage, wife-
sharing, and jealousy are mentioned several times. Pitseolak
describes a game which was
played to teach the men not to be
jealous. It was a dance, called
kiveetuk, where the men joined
hands and went round their wives
who stood within the circle. When
the men stopped moving, they
would kiss whichever woman was
nearest them. If a man became
jealous he would be booted out of
the game.
Another subject which may be of
special interest to the reader are
those periods in Eskimo history
which Pitseolak calls "religious
times." These happened after the
Eskimo's exposure to Christianity
and were a kind of religious
madness that would suddenly seize
the people. Pitseolak is quite
critical of these episodes in his
people's history. For those
familiar with the recent religious
crazes among certain youth here,
his descriptions will give an interesting new perspective on the
phenomenon.
The one subject on which Pitseolak is most eloquent is the
constant pressure to change. For
the last century these people have
been under increasing pressure
from our technological society He
removes the topic of technological
impact on a primitive people from
being an abstract and academic
topic, and reveals its very personal, very immediate, and very
specific effects. As a leader
who Was involved in bringing
change to his people, Pitseolak
reveals a particularly poignant
case of ambivalence toward
change. His book is a way of
making amends and is his attempt
to preserve what is passing.
If one is seeking a well-organized
and factually informative book,
Pitseolak's volume will be
disappointing. Its value lies in the
disorganized impressions that it
leaves with us. Impressions that
are perhaps all the stronger
because they rise up at us from out
of a more incomprehensible whole

Stampeders—orgy of trash
By BRIAN GIBBARD
The Stampeders, The Incredible Laughing
Band (would I lie to you) and Thundermug
all on Saturday night in the PNE Gardens —
an orgy of absolute trash. It was without
doubt the worst concert I have ever attended.
The concert started off badly. The Incredible Laughing Band started by
demolishing I Got the Music In Me, and
followed by playing such hit tunes as
"Jungle Boogie" (I think that's what it was
called), and an atrocious rock 'n roll version
of In the Mood. Glenn Miller would roll over
in his grave.
After 20 minutes of that garbage, the
teenage tycoon and I decided that things
could only get better. We were right, but just
barely.
Thundermug (where do they get these
names?) was next. The promo sheet said
they were a power trio playing hard rock in
the Who tradition. Well, they play hard
alright. Real hard rock. In the Who
tradition? I leave it to you: would Pete
Townshend say something as
illuminatingas, "When you're different,
people put you down, so we thought we
better write a song about it." Pretty heavy
stuff, am I right?
Thundermug featured a guitar player who
was quite entertaining — he looked like a
3004iundred pound ballerina. He at least
kept us laughing.
The highlight of the show had to be when
they played a song banned across Canada,
because of the sexual implications of the
lyrics. It was called Banga Banga Humpa
Humpa My Darling. Half the crowd didn't
get it.
Well anyway, after Thundermug, T.T. and
I decided that unless The Incredible
Laughters came back on, things couldn't get
any worse. We were right, but just barely.
However, I did like the first song that the
Stampeders did. Their section of the show
actually started pretty well. Some nifty
electronic music came blasting out of the
much-vaunted quadraphonic sound system
(which the other bands hadn't used).
Then, with a puff of smoke and a flash of
light, The Stampeders started off with
Ramona. They played all their hits — Sweet
City Woman, Devil U. and about a zillion
more. I lost track. They're all about three
minutes long, and they all sound much the
same.
Unfortunately, the quad sound system
saved only the first song and the drum solo,
which also featured the use of flaming
drumsticks. (I'm not making this up).
Otherwise, it was like a giant reverb unit
with speakers in four corners.
When Wolfman appeared to the
OOOOOHHHHHs and AAAAAAHHHHHHs
and squeals of delight from the largely pre-

This all-Canadian evening left me with a

slick production, but trash is still trash.
Preserved hot
By BRUCE BAUGH
The Preservation Hall Band tore
everybody up at the Queen E. on Friday
night. Before an ecstatic full house, the band
performed two hours of New Orleans jazz, in
much the same way as it would have been
played at the beginning of this century.
Each song followed the traditional form of
early jazz: an ensemble opening and
closing, with solos from each band member
in between and a basic folk-blues chord
structure. Nevertheless, the level of
musicianship was sufficient to breathe new
life into such classics as St. Louis Blues,
Tiger Rag, and Won't You Come Home Bill
Bailey.
Each solo was built around the melody
and structure of the song, keeping from the
intellectualized and often boring excursions
characteristic of much of modern jazz. This
is good time music: it can be enjoyed as
much for the feelings it produces as for the
beauty of its form.
Most of the band members grew up
listening to and playing traditional jazz,
which puts the age of the musicians in the 60-
and 70-year bracket. But don't let their age
fool you:  these guys can play with the
vitality of jazzmen half their age, and with
twice the authority.
Some of the music was so good it was as if
the band was giving a lesson in how to play
jazz. The interplay between Percy Humphrey on trumpet and Willie Humphrey on
clarinet comes to mind, as does the solo
work of drummer Cie Frazier and banjo
player Narbin Kimball.
Frank Demond on trombone and Allan
Jaffe on tuba, the youngest members of the
band, also contributed to the old-time feel of
the music, while Sing Miller held the songs
together with his excellent work on piano.
The vocals and playing of Narbin Kimball
were for me the high point of the evening.
But each number was warmy received by
the audience, who gave the band several
standing ovations and crowded the stage for
the traditional closer, When the Saints Go
Marching In.
Which just goes to show that good music is
never time-worn, but time-less.
I have it on reliable sources that the entire
band went to a well known Vancouver trad-
jazz club after the concert and jammed until
the early morning hours, which is a pretty
good indication of the energy and enthusiasm of its members.
STAMPEDERS . .. concert was "absolute trash'
Phillips sensitive to roots
PRESERVATION HALL BAND . . . good jazz sound from New Orleans
By ROBERT DIOTTE
I was at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre
Saturday night to catch Shawn Phillips in
concert. A lanky singer and guitar player
who evolved out of the old protest folksters
of the 60's, Phillips' music still showed his
roots although it has developed added
dimensions.
The evening almost turned into a minor
fiasco when the show was one full hour late
in starting. Because the theatre itself was
kept closed, the lobbies were packed. Only
the lobby bars profited from the delay as the
guzzlers took full advantage of the time to
establish a new Queen E. record for a single
performance in bar sales. This bit of trivia
courtesy of a friend on the inside.
Shawn Phillips concert
at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre
an Isle of Man production
As the thing finally got going, it became
evident from the outset that the audience
was not the only group impatient with the
delay. The backup group, Hall and Oates,
never really did much despite what seemed
to be a talented crew of musicians. Tired,
uninspired, their music was visibly bored
with itself. There were some who had paid
the entrance fee to see this group
specifically. So it was unfortunate for them
that Hall and Oates were so listless on stage.
Following a late intermission, Phillips
stepped out and immediately set up a
rapport with the audience with some light
clowning.   His  humor   was   welcome.   He
began what became a short set with several
ballads reminiscent of Phil Ochs. Some of
the material was from his recent album
Furthermore. Having played at odd times
with John Sebastian, Tim Hardin and
Donovan, Phillips showed the characteristic
intelligence of that influence, with his ability
to focus key social problems through his own
personality and present them in a manner
that articulates the feelings of his audience.
Songs like "Mr. President" and "Talking In
the Garden" worked out of simple word
plays which relied heavily on rhymes to
expound a basic dignity against the topical
sensations.of the day. They were well done.
Surprisingly, the way he has gone electronic was not represented in the show.
Phillips did change to electric guitar and the
rest of the staff joined him for some
weightier material but there was little
technical electronic wizadry. In a manner
which suggests the late Tim Buckley,
another product of the 60's, Phillips has
worked innovative contrapuntal
arrangements into his music. At one point,
guitar, flute, piano and bass were all involved in individual solos juxtaposed one on
the other simultaneously. The effect was
captivating.
Phillips has also cultivated a liking for
abrupt endings. This left the audience
somewhat stupified with the final tune as he
and the band sprinted from the stage. It took
a few seconds to adjust before he was called
back for an encore. He deserved the call.
There is an originality in the sound which
suggests an artist firmly in control of his
material and his direction.

Chimps redo man's past
By RICHARD YATES
It will astonish and trouble most
of us to learn that chimpanzees can
use a human language to communicate. For the last half decade
a band of Ameslan-speaking
chimps has been under study at the
Institute for Primate Studies of the
University of Oklahoma. As the
author of this book points out, this
may be the one discovery of recent
times that may do most to change
man's intellectual history.
Most of us will be astonished at
this discovery because we had
been supremely confident that only
man among the animals on this
planet had the intelligence
necessary for language. This
illusion is now shattered by the
revelation that chimps use
Ameslan (the primary language
used by deaf people in North
America) both among themselves
and with humans.
Apes, Men, and Language
by Eugene Linden
Clarke, Irwin & Co. Ltd.
1974, $10.25
It is surprising that while billions
of dollars have been spent in
search of extraterrestrial life, in
the hopes of finding an alien intelligence, such intelligence
resides here on earth. But our
blindness to the intelligence of our
fellow earth residents suggests a
deep-seated desire to not discover
such an intelligence in them.
Linden devotes a portion of his
book to the pursuit of this thought:
Washoe [the first chimp to use
Ameslan] poses the greatest threat
to the integrity of the Western
vision of reality since Darwin.
Western thought has been giving
ground, adjusting to the existence
of the apes since they were first
discovered; however, in admitting
physical similarities with the
primates, we have been com-
mensurately refining the notion of
the uniqueness of human behavior
to preserve the traditional Western
notion that an unbreachable abyss
separates animal and man. The
behavior used to maintain this
distinction has been language.
The beauty of Linden's book is its
weath of interests and viewpoints.
Readers from almost any
background can find in this book a
section that speaks directly to their
interest. Through this one interest,
Linden has woven together a book
that will introduce them to still
other topics.
Those seeking animal stories will
find them. Linden gives a dramatic
presentation of his acquaintance
with the Ameslan-using chimps
Washoe, Lucy and Ally. The
development of Washoe's language
ability and her life among the
colony of chimps at the research
institute is presented in the warm
tones and the anthropomorphisized
format to which animal lovers are
accustomed.
For the uninitiated, this book
offers an uncomplicated explanation of what it is that the
chimps do and why this can be
classified as language use instead
of communication (which is to be
understood as something on a
lower order, such as signalling).
A relatively large amount of the
book is absorbed in reviewing
linguistic theories and the criteria
linguists have set down for judging
communication in animals to be
examples of language. Linden has
not mastered this material sufficiently to give us an easy and
clear account of this matter, but
still this material is worth taking
the effort to read.
The most exciting part of this
book sketches the various experiments that are either under
way or projected. One which is
under way is the study of how the
chimps use Ameslan to converse
with each other inside the colony.
Another will involve the observation of how Washoe will go
about teaching  Ameslan  to  her
child.
The most ambitious experiment
will try to use the chimps to, in
some sense, reconstruct man's
evolutionary past. A colony will be

introduced into an enclosed 50-acre
area with sheep. It is hoped that
they will use Ameslan to develop a
co-operative predation. Later the
investigators will try to introduce a
primitive economy among the
chimps.
The latter part of the book takes
on a rather grandiose task. Linden
seeks to understand why the
scientific community could be
blind to the language abilities of
the chimps (and other animals as
well). In the process of giving him
diagnosis of the malaise among
scientists that has blinded them to
this reality, he makes some very
broad assessments of modern
science, and especially of its use of
paradigms.
These pages carry some
remarkably dramatic prose and
some intriguing flashes of insight
that may stimulate the reader, but,
by and large, one is left impressed
only with the drama of a personal
tragedy. Here a scientific novice
slashes away at the villainy of an
ignorant scientific community,
only to reveal himself to be far too
ignorant to wield his own sword
well. The hero, our author, succeeds only in slaying his own
arguments with his incompetence.
One of the most exasperating of
Linden's displays of fundamental
ignorance of modern science
comes when he discusses the
Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle.
The principle roughly says that the
physical universe cannot be
treated as continuous because
ultimately our very act of observation modifies what we observe: it introduces an element of
uncertainty. Linden, however,
makes the following claim about
Heisenberg's principle:
To examine the world abstractly,
one has to withdraw from it, to
displace oneself from the
phenomenon to be examined. The
nature of displacement demands
that some aspect of a phenomenon
be sacrificed — reality must be
fixed on some continuum.
Discreteness is in the nature of
reason, because without
discreteness, displacement and
reason would not be possible. The
uncertainty of Heisenberg's
electron reflects the uncertainty of
reason itself. Heisenberg's electron reflects the problems of a
system of thought and a model of
the universe founded on
discreteness' attempting to
quantify an irrationally founded
and undiscrete universe.
From this quotation one can
quickly get a picture of how wooly
Linden's thinking is in this section.
But at the same time, the ideas
that he is presenting have a certain
quality to them that forces the
reader to respond and think for
himself. Even Linden himself
admits that this part of the book is
not perhaps as accurate and
careful as he would want it to be.
This book deserves a wide
audience. Its style and competence
stand far above the level of the
usual scientific popularizers.
Unlike most books of this type, this
one will challenge the reader to
puzzle and think on several levels
about science and the role of
science in our culture.

P.F. music freak Bruce Baugh nabbed the whole
Downchild Blues Band for this interview last week.
They consist of Tony Flain on vocals, Jane Vasey on
keyboard, Don  Walsh on guitar, Jim Milne on bass
and Bill Bryans on drums.
PF: How many times have you been to
Vancouver before?
Don: I think this is our fifth time in.
PF: WTiat do you find the response is like
here in Vancouver to your act?
Don: Really good. We have a great time.
Tony: This is the fifth time though. Like the
first time we came was kind of ... ah . .
everybody was new to our music and . .
eomin' out and exposing ourselves to them.
The first time was alright; ever since then
it's been climbin'.
PF: You're from Toronto, right?
Tony: Yeah
PF:   Do you find the response is different
here than it is in Toronto to a white blues
band?   '
Don: Not really. I think it's really more the
music than anything. The way we play,
people have a nice time. In Vancouver and
Toronto it's about the same. It's really good,
it's a really good response. A good time is
had by all. And the same with Calgary,
Edmonton ...
PF: What is it about Toronto that produces
so many Canadian blues acts, such as
yourselves, and Mainline before, and people
like that? There's really nothing comparable to that out here on the west coast.
Don: I really don't know. I don't think there
are any real blues acts out of Toronto. I've
never seen one other than ourselves that's
been a real blues act. I've seen some sort-of
blues acts. Whiskey Howl is one that's in
kind of a blues bag, but they're not really
blues. I don't think it has anything to do with
Toronto or anything else.
Tony: I think it's musicians. There are a lot
of musicians there, and there's a lot of bags,
I think it's mostly work. There's work .there,
and there's not that much work out here.
You'vegot your main shops out here, I mean
clubs, like the Body Shop, Oil Can's and the
rest of them. But they're hiring acts outside
of Vancouver; so if you're talkin' about
Vancouver and why there's no blues or no
acts here, out of Vancouver, I think it's
'cause of the work. ,
PF: Don, you said you don't think there are
any other real blues bands in Toronto. Does
that put you in the position of being
something of a "blues purist"? Like, in what
way do Whiskey How and Mainline differ
from your band-?
Don: Neither of them really play in the blues
style. A lot of them didn't have blues players
in the band. That's about it. Like I listen to
them and I listen to blues bands, and there's
a difference.
PF: Who do you listen to?
Don: Oh, me.. . (laughs) ... I don't know,
uh, Luther Allison, Sonny Boy Williamson,
Muddy Waters. Sonny Boy's dead of course,
but there's records. Robert Lockwood, out of
Cleveland. . . .
Tony: He's a guitar player who was on a
lot of Sonny Boy's tunes Robert Junior.
Lockwood.
Don: Are you familiar with the blues?
PF: Somewhat.
Don: Do you know Little Walter (Jacobs) ?
PF: Yeah.
Don: He played most of the guitar on the
Little Walter cuts. Same with Sonny Boy. He
was quite a player.   •-  ,
PF: Is that your main influence as far as
guitar playing goes?
Don: No, I wouldn't say that. There's a lot
of 'em. There's, um, he's the main influence
in the older style, meaning around the early
'50's and-late '40's. There's also, in a closer
kind of music, Albert Collins. He's from the
west coast.
PF: Texas.
Don: Yeah, well he plays on the west coast
circuit. And uh. . . Buddy Guy, Luther
Allison, and when you go back it's Muddy
Waters, Lowell Fulson, Robert Lockwood,
as I said. And Jimmy Reed.
PF: You also play harmonica. Who were
your influences there?
Don: Sonny Boy was. Little Walter not so
much. Everybody I ever saw play harmonica always played like Little Walter.
Little Walter's great, but anytime I want to
hear him I can either listen to him or
anybody else that plays a harmonica.
PF: What do you think of other white
blues harmonica players, like John Mayall
or Paul Butterfield?
Don: They're good players. I don't know
Mayall's playing too much. I know he's a
good player. I haven't heard very much of
him. Butterfield's good., I really like James
Cotton. He's one of the guys I like to listen to
most. He's got a lot of groove. Charlie
Musslewhite. He's a good player. All those
guys are really good players.
PF: Are there big differences between
blues acts here, in North America, and blues
acts from England?
Tony: There is. The boys from North
America play them. The guys over there are
into the blues, and then they stretch out. I
think one of the guys that stayed in the blues
groove . . . like he's gone back to it, he's got
a new album out right now, is Clapton. He's
back into it. He does Further On Up the
Road, and Stones in My Pathway, Ramblin'
On My Mind. That's Robert Johnson stuff.
But that's not necessarily how Robert
Johnson played it 'cause there was no rhythmic section with him. Strictly a twelve
string. That's the difference. Over there
they play around with it, and they take it
other places. The guys that are into the
blues in North America, they know about it
over here; that's all they play. They just
stay in a blues bag
does that allow you to make that music an
expression of your own feelings?
Tony: Well, we've got a new album out
now, and there's 11 tunes on the album, and
eight of 'em are Donny's. So I don't know
what to say about that one. I mean, you start
off, you have to have roots in anything you
do, and then you extend them: you start
doing your own stuff, your own material,
and you find that here and there there's a
taste of blues you've just picked up over the
years. Like there's a tune that's our newest
single now, and it's called "Old Ma Bell,"
it's kind of a. . . .
Don: (jokingly) . . . shaahd up. . . .
Tony: You're telling me to shut up! It's
kind of a Joe Turner groove, so I sing it like
in a Joe Turner groove, but it's o"ur tune.
PF: This is your fourth album out now.
Tony: Right.
PF: I'veheard there's some sort of legend
about your first LP, the "Bootleg" album.
Would you like to explain that?
Tony: Donny would.
Don: We went to a.small studio in the
basement of a high-rise apartment building.
The studio was in a storage room, in the
underground parking. We did some demo
tapes, mono, on a small tape recorder. We
did about 17 tunes we put down on track, and
it sounded really good, so we decided we'd
do 'em in stereo. So the next night we came
backanddid 'em, and I think we did 12 or 13
tunes, and it sounded pretty good, so we said
"Press 'em, and sell 'em." So we made our
own record, and we sold it to the record
stores out of the trunk of a car. A couple of
'em, Sam the Record Man and A & A
Records, bought the record, and they were
selling on Yonge Street. It started to sell a
few copies, and RCA eventually picked it up,
and they distributed it. They.distribute it to
this day. It's called "Bootleg."
PF: Is that how it got the title? Because of
the way it was first distributed?
Don: Sort of. Also there's two boots and
two legs on the cover.
PF: Who's feet?
Don: My brother's-, as a matter of fact. He
used to sing in the band.
Had a lot of good times down there.
PF: Did you get a chance to jam with any
other blues musicians down there?
Don: Yeah, we did. It was a lot of fun.
Frogman Henry was down in New Orelans.
PF: Who is Frogman Henry?
Don: You know a tune by the band called
"I ain't got no home?"
PF: Yeah.
Don: That's Frogman Henry's tune from
about the early '50's. Frogman Henry comes
from the same area as Huey Piano Smith.
You know him?
PF: No.
Don: You remember High Blood
Pressure, Rockin' Pneumonia and the
Boogie Woogie Flu?
PF: Yeah.
Tony: Sea Cruise?
PF: Yeah.
Don:  We  played
Frankie Ford Club
PF: As a blues band, and a club act, do
you find you spend a lot of time on the road,
touring?
Don: Yeah, we do half clubs, half concerts.
PF: Where are the concerts?
Don: We have eight of them coming up
after this week. We're doing Calgary Sunday night, Moose Jaw Monday, Weyburn
Tuesday, Regina Wednesday, Brandon
Thursday, Winnipeg Friday and Saturday,
and Thunder Bay Sunday. Then we go home.
PF: Have you done any playing or touring

next eight days.are our own concerts. We did
a couple already in Banff, Edmonton,
Calgary. The groove is really pickin' up in
the concerts.
PF: How Would you compare playing
concerts to playing clubs?
Don: When you play a concert, everybody
who goes to the concert goes to see you.
When you play a club, most of the people go
to see you, but there's other things too. So
anybody who's at the concert is much more
into the band, because you kind of have to
stay in your seat. So it's actually a better
groove-in concert.
PF: Do you have any influences outside of
Folk the blues? I noticed that some of the horn
in    arrangements sound a bit like Bill Haley.
Don: The Joe Turner group was actually a
big influence on Bill Haley. . .

Who will watch the guards?
By JEAN RANDALL
The central idea in Three Days
of The Condor is not new. It
reminds one of the scene from
Patton, where the general is
standing on a hill, looking down at
a contingent of Rommel's tanks
engaged in combat with his tanks,
Patton thinks Rommel is at that
particular battle, which he isn't, so
he yells down victoriously to the
German general, "I read your
damn book!" Thus Patton wins the
battle with superior strategy.

possible plans. The problem occurs
when Turner, code name Condor
(Robert Redford),reads an obscure
mystery novel written about the
middle-east that he turns into his
section-chief, Wicks. Wicks knows
Atwood, who is chief of Middle-
East operations. As luck would
have it, Atwood has read the same
book, and was already putting its
idea into operation, by his own
authority - a renegade operation.
Deputy CIA Director Higgins
(Cliff Robertson) and Director Mr.
Wabash (John Houseman) don't
know about Atwood and Wicks'
plan. So when Redford, alias
Condor phones in to report that his
whole CIA section has been
brutally murdered, Higgins then
makes arrangements for him to
come in. Higgins unwittingly sends
Wicks along with a good friend of
Condor's, to pick Redford - up.

New science fiction stuff
By STAN G.HYDE
Laser Books is a new monthly
series I have designed to sweep you
along into the world of excitement
and adventure . . . as only science
fiction can. Even more important,
in these books you will meet real
people, people with whom you can
identify.
So says Roger Elwood, the editor
of the new Laser Books series.
Elwood is well-known as the
packager of more Science Fiction
,(SF) anthologies per year than any
other publisher. He is also SF
editor for Pyramid and Bobbs-
Merrill books. This means that
Elwood's personal biases, tastes,
and editorial style, have dictated a
rather high percentage of the SF
publishing industry for several
years.
Now he is also acting editor of
the Canadian-based Laser, part of
Harlequin Enterprises Limited of
Don Mills Ontario. This is the same
company that publishes insipid
romance fiction under the
Harlequin label.
While the hero of the
predominantly male-oriented
Lasers doesn't always get kissed
on the second-to-last page, their
overall quality level is similar to
Harlequins. Titles like Crash
Landing on Iduna, Gates of the
Universe, and Renegades of Time
hark back. to the ugly pulp-
magazine days of SF. Generally
cliche-ridden and crammed to the
gills with over-emotional girls and
bug-eyed monsters, the first six
Lasers had glazed my eyes by the
time I finished, them. In Crash
Landing on Iduna, for instance
"We were in trouble . . . deep
trouble ... the kind that every
spacefarer dreaded."
Naturally the Everison family of
the book crashes, as the- title so
subtly hints, on Iduna. After
pulling themselves out of the wreck
they battle something that
resembles a gargantuan wart-hog.
Unfortunately the only weapon
they have with them is "merely a
nerve stunner" which soon breaks
down. This leaves them to trek
back and forth across the surface
of. Iduna weaponless and con~>
stantly beset by yet more wart-
hogs. Eventually they encounter
two races of pitiably stupid aliens,
the Maloons and the Thrulls, both
of wribm carry off women. The only
distinction between the two races,
which appear identical, is that the
Maloons are wicked. This I find
inexplicable since at no point did
the Maloons try to rape, or eat, the
earth women, the characteristic
behavior of bug-eyed monsters.
Finally the women are rescued.
What I find incredible about the
Laser books is that any writer
could possible endure hacking out
190 pages, exactly, c? the stuff. If it
is boring to read, God how much
more boring it must be to write!
None of the characters in them,
those "people". Elwood talks about
in his introduction to the series, has
a mental age of more than eleven.
As children's books they are a little
better than the Hardy Boys series
but still not worth the serious attention of anyone older than
twelve. Which brings us to the
reason for a review of books so
obviously unimportant.
Last year, at a science fiction
convention here in Vancouver^
Robert Silverberg announced that
he was giving up SF. Silverberg is
the author of some really excellent
SF like The World Inside and Son
of Man, the latter being about
evolution's eventual effect on
human identity and sexuality. He
is having'trouble selling his brand
of intellectual SF because
publishers don't want to take a risk
on anything that might scare away
a reader. Times are tough. The
giant-eggplantsfrornTitanhave no
big-thinks to confuse the under-
twelves and no questions or "objectionable scenes" to alienate the
older generation.
Harlequin's modus operandi is to
inundate drugstores, cigar stores
and other repositories of great
wisdom with uniformly covered
books often sold out of Harlequin's
own bins or racks. Bookstores as
prestigious as UBC's received
Lasers during the initial blitz.
-There will be three more titles a
month, thirty-six this year. Even if
Harlequin's managers do not
decide to increase the number of
releases, Laser books will
proliferate like the Blob, eventually shouldering a great quantity
of SF not only to the back of the
rack but right off the stands. As a
side-effect, this may take some
voices that should be heard and
effectively silence them.
If Lasers are in your favorite
store, it might be a good idea to ask
the manager if Harlequin will
supply its own rack, or if he could
put them on the shelf with the
movie magazines and comics,
leaving room for good SF.
Because, on a planet that can be
destroyed at any given second
several times, where the very
concept of humanity is confused
and submerging amid technology,
and where our eco-balance
resembles that of a garbage dump,
problems tackled by good SF,
nobody has enough time left to
worry about the wicked Maloons on
Iduna.
but, she also has a slightly
melodramatic and immature
character. Some excellent
dialogue precedes the obligatory
lovescene.
Atwood has a free-lance assassin
in his employ named Joubert (Max
von Sydow). Joubert is able to
track Condor to his hideout. Then
he sends another killer to do the job
on Redford. Again, Condor
narrowly escapes being murdered.
He takes some information from
the body of the assassin he killed,
and pieces the clues together by
means of new and clever
techniques. He finds out that it is
Atwood that is behind everything.
However, by the time he abducts
Higgins to discuss with him what's
going on, Higgins and Wabash are
officially "embarrassed" by the
whole bloody situation and cannot
afford to have Condor around
permanently anymore.
Condor tracks Atwood to his
mansion in Chevy Chase,
Maryland and begins to get all the
information about the operation
out of him. Suddenly Joubert turns
up with a gun. He kills Atwood but
not Condor (since he has been
rehired by   the  C.I.A.   to   "get"
Atwood) but has made no
arrangement to get Condor at this
particular time. Joubert turns out
to be a rather genial guy. They
talk, trade philosophies, and
Joubert drives Redford back to
New York.
To save himself from the C.I.A.,
Condor makes a rather smart
move, but we are left in doubt at
the end as to whether or not it will
work.
There are many good, sudden,
unexpected moves in the show,
guaranteed to jolt you (a la Day of
The Jackal).
The heavy paranoid tension of
the incredibly complicated plot is
occasionally broken by Dave
Grusin's background music. The
sequences of Redford chasing
around town to the beat of Grusin's
rock-jazz could only have been
improved perhaps by Quincy
Jones' music.
Another good tension breaker is
the glamour shots of New York.
Hart Crane's Brooklyn Bridge is
done justice.
As indicated earlier, the plot is a
little worn, but there are enough
new touches to make it not a bad
flik.
iff ore Dotvnehild blues
PF: What were your influences
as a blues vocalist?
Tony: I was a truck driver before
I joined this band. I always listened
to B. B. (King)* and the Wolf
(Howlin' Wolf), and Muddy
Waters. I don't sing like Muddy
though. Donny (Walsh) has helped
me a lot, doing the right thing:
singing the words that you got, and
that's all, without making up any
other ones.
PF: You don't do any vocal
improvisations then.
Tony: No, sometimes I uh
listen to me!
Don: No, he sings like Tony
Flaim.
Tony: Youcan'tdo too many "oh
Lords" and "baby's" and "ooh, my
my's." There's none of that. You
sing what you have. As far as influences go, I listen to B. B., I listen
to Albert King. Joe Turner I was
getting into when I first joined the
band, and Donny had an album
called "Joe Turner's Greatest
Hits." I got that album, and I've
worn it down, there's no more
grooves on it. I just listen to him a
whole lot, 'cause I like him. Like
it's blues, but they call it rock and
roll.
PF: What's happening is that. . .
a lot of funk. Well not really funk.
Like funk to me was Wilson Pickett
and James Brown. Now it's disco.
You get all the guys coming up
playing Average White and Tower
of Power, which is all right, but
there's 30 bands doing that.
Don: It's hard now. It's hard to
get work if you're just an average
band, you know, in one week' and
out the next.
PF: How long has the band been
together now?
Don: Six and a half years.
PF: Have there been many
personal changes?
Don: Twenty-seven players. We
counted 'em up one day.
PF: How many original members are" there in this edition of
Down child?
Don: Myself and the bass player.
Dave Woodward the sax player
started about six months after the
band started, and Tony's been with
the band for two years now. Jane
about two and a half years. Bill
about a year now.
PF: Do you notice a lot of
borrowing on the part of second
generation blues artists from the
originals?
Tony: Yeah. Take Clapton.
Don: . . .they're not really blues
players. ...
Tony: . . .like Alvin Lee, ya
know. There's a difference between playing. Alvin Lee does a 12-
bar. Seven notes will do fine.
Sometimes three will be great. . . .
Don: Most of Alvin Lee is Chuck
Berry.
Tony: ... .and then he just
screams 80 notes at you and that's
it. And Page is the same way. The
only guy that ever came out of
England that really moves me is
Clapton, and early Mick Taylor.
When he was with Mayall.
PF: You didn't like his work with
the Stones?
Tony: Oh, yeah, he added to the
Stones, but the Stones are Jagger
and Richards and that's it. He was
nice with them, but I can see why
he split. There was no stretching
out for the guy. He had music in his
head, but it was Jagger and
Richards, and that's where the
whole thing lies. He was getting
stifled.
PF: Where do you see the blues
scene as being at now?
Don: I think blues is on the up. I
think music in general is on the up.
I can't really tell you the ups and
downs   for   blues.

THE      UBYSSEY
Friday, October 17, 1975 By ERIC IVAN BERG
For the student budget this headache filled mid-term exam week
freebies and cheapies are the only events that anybody can afford.
Therefore we would like to remind you of the freebies available in the
Vancouver Art Gallery's two outstanding shows still on their agenda.
Norman White's' 'Electrical Machines" display which was photo-essayed
recently by PF staff photographer Doug Field will be in operation till
November 2nd. "Exploratory Space" is Gary Snider's new programme
concurrently showing at the VAG until Nov. 2nd.vYes both are free, free,
free!
The best student budget moviegoing bargain to be found in the entire
province is right here on our UBC campus. This is UBC Film Society's el
cheapo (seventy-five cents!) but excellent film fare which features
Return of The Dragon this weekend for all the fanatic Bruce Lee kung-fu
fans. Filmsoc is also sponsoring exceptional extra Saturday nite features
in the Old Auditorium tomorrow and next Saturday. For only a buck
students can groove on American Graffitti (7:00 & 9:30) and Deliverance
banjo music next Saturday (Oct. 2&F.
Cinema-16 every Monday night is also an extraordinary bargain — the
only catch being you must buy the various series tickets ($4.00 per) to get
into each series. For example this Monday night (20th) C-16 is screening
the famous gangster film Little Caesar with Edward G. Robinson as the
legendary hood Rico.
Star date for the big Puget Sound Star Trekkers gala Star Trek conference is Saturday, November 8th. The planetary location of this all day
art show, costume parade, Star Trek film competition, guest speakers
and general Spock groupie get-together is Seattle's Seattle Center (North
Court). All fans (and there are millions) should send a SSAE (letter) to
Puget Sound Star Trekkers at 830 - 35th Ave. Seattle, WA 98122 . .. before
Halloween!

Pucksters to meet ex-'Birds
The UBC Thunderbirds hockey
team see action this weekend when
they meet the alumni team in the
First Annual Alumni Hockey game
Saturday night at 8:00 p.m. at the
Winter Sports Centre.
The 23-men strong alumni team
was trimmed down from the initial
40 grads who tried out for the
squad.
Heading the long list of ex-UBC
hockey stars will be Bobby Gaul
trophy winners Mickey McDowell
and Jack Moores. Former Canada
team member McDowell will be
joined   by   Al   McLean   also   of
Canada team fame in the forward
line. The two will play alongside
Norm Park, Rick Longpre and
Chuck Carignan.
Over in defense, Moores will be
joined by Laurie Vanzella and
Steve Fera; and they will be
backed by strong goaltending from
Fred Masuch and Ken Smith.
The Thunderbirds, with a 12-11-1
conference record last year will
feature 13 returnees in their roster.
Taking care of the goal will be
all-star Ian Wilkie. In front of
Wilkie will be another all-star,
defenseman   Bruce   Brill.   John
Jordon and Wayne Hendry complete the UBC back line.
The forward line will feature
Keith Tindle on the left, Jim
Lawrence in the middle and Bob
Sparling rounding off the lineup on
right wing.
The UBC team, strong contenders for the Canada West title
this year, will be the biggest team
ever. They average 180 lbs. and
have 10 players over six feet.
UBC Thunderbirds head coach
Bob   Hindmarch   will   leave   the
Football Birds hit the road
By TOM BARNES
In 1959 the Thunderbird Football
team put 216 points on the
scoreboard, they need 33 more to
top that this season.
There are four games left for the
'Birds to do it.
Three of those four games are
going to be the most important
games played by a UBC football
team in well over a decade. Those
three games will decide the league
championship. If the 'Birds win all
three remaining league games
they will win the Western Intercollegiate Football title. If they win
two of the three games, they will
have a good chance of winning the
championship.
This weekend, however, they
have a rest from league play. To
fill,the void in the schedule coach
Frank Smith arranged a trip to
Butte, Montana to play the Montana Tech team. It is not going to
be an easy game for UBC.
Montana Tech plays in the
Frontier Conference of the
National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics. "They are
a good strong team," said Smith,
"but how strong in comparison
' with the better teams in our conference is something we'll find
out."
The 'Birds are not going to have
much of a break going into the
game. Linebacker Dave MacKay-
Dunn and defensive back Ten Hon
,. Choo are both still nursing knee
injuries. Gary Metz is going to be
Women host
field-hockey
out for at least two more weeks
recovering from appendicitis.
Bernie Crump is lost because of a
partially separated shoulder
acquired in last week's 56-25 win
over the University of Manitoba
Bisons. That is four starters who
won't be able to make the trip.
The trip itself is two days by bus.
To further complicate the matter
the 'Birds had to spend much
practice time this week learning
the American rules.
To make matters worse, Butte
reported six inches of snow earlier
this week.
In their favor the 'Birds will have
the passing arm of quarterback
Dan Smith and the running of
fullback Gord Penn. This coupled
with the morale and momentum
UBC has gathered thus far in the
season will probably be enough to
overcome the negative factors
mentioned above.
tourney
The UBC women's field hockey
team will play host to the teams
from Universities of Victoria,
Alberta and Calgary for the
Canada West championships this
'weekend.
The Canada West matches will
be played on the McGregor and
Spencer fields on the south campus.
The Canada West tournament
will start today at 11:00 a.m. when
.the home team takes on the Victorians and the team from
University of Alberta will meet
fellow Albertans from Calgary.
This afternoon, UBC will go after
U of A, while U of C will have their
hands full with UVic. Game time is
3:00 p.m.
'   The rest of the schedule is as
follows:
Saturday:
11 a.m. — UVic vs U of A; UBC
vs U of C.
3 p.m. UBC vs UVic; U of C vs U
of A.
Sunday:

Upon their return from Montana,
on October 25, UBC will play the
most important of their final three
league games in Thunderbird
Stadium. That is the day the
Saskatchewan Huskies will be in
town.
The Huskies are currently in
first place, having lost only one
game all year. They were nipped
21-17 by the Calgary Dinosaurs in
their league opener.
When UBC met them in
Saskatoon the Huskies won 43-17,
but the game was extremely close
until the final quarter. If the 'Birds
can pull off a win at home over
them, UBC will be in the best
position of all teams to take the
conference.
In their final games of the year
UBC travels to Calgary, then
closes out the season by hosting the
University of Alberta Golden
Bears on November 8.

getting UBC's first ice surface on
campus.
Father Bauer was the coach of
the 'Birds for two years prior to his
formation of Canada's national
team in 1963.
With the Thunderbirds raring to
go after the summer layoff and the
grads out to prove they haven't lost
their touch yet, the game should be
exciting and lots of fun.
Rugger West starts
Donn Spence's rugby 'Birds take aim at their first title of the season
today, Saturday, and Sunday in Victoria at the Canada West tournament.
They meet the University of Alberta Golden Bears at 1:00 p.m. today.
On Saturday at 1:00 p.m. they take on the University of Calgary
Dinosaurs. Then on Sunday a 3:00 p.m. they meet last year's runners-up,
the University of Victoria Vikings.
UBC has won the event the last four years in a row. They go into the
tournament the odds on favourites to repeat once more.
It is felt that the Vikings are much weaker than last year, while competitively the Alberta teams would have had to have made large gains in
order to be in a position to challenge the 'Birds.
UBC, however, is not playing without some handicaps. Frank Carson,
Paul Watson, Mel Reeves, and Will McKenzie are all ineligible for
Canada West play. To top it off Rick Bourne reinjured his knee ligaments
in a B.C. rep game on the Thanksgiving weekend.
"We are going to have to play up to our potential to win," said Spence,
"and I don't think we have played up to our potential yet this year."
Thus far this year the 'Birds have won two of four first division games
in the Vancouver Rugby Union.
The UBC Thunderbirds soccer team squeaked through to a 1-0 win over
the University of Alberta Golden Bears in exhibition play yesterday at the
Thunderbirds Stadium.
Ken Beadle booted in the winning goal off a John Nelson pass.
UBC coach Joe Johnson made use of the game to try out some of his
rookies. As a result, the team played with enthusiasm but little coordination.
UBC will next see action Saturday against the so far unbeaten Pegasus
at the Thunderbirds Stadium at 2 p.m.
