Novels of integration
and understanding
not just for gays
Jane Rule's first novel, Desert of the Heart, drew skeptical
response when it was published in 1964. Critics were not ready
for such a candid discussion of lesbianism.
"Desert of the Heart is extremely frank.in its treatment of lesbianism. Perhaps a little too frank. The author almost makes it seem
"There are some facets of mental illness that are not particularity
pretty and although these things are no longer discussed behind closed doors, is it necessary to bring them into print for display?"
A former UBC professor, Rule is an ex-patriate American who
now lives on Galiano Island. She has published five novels, two collections of short stories and her best-selling history of other lesbian
writers, Lesbian Images.
Ifs dangerous for a
writer to be locked
into a world
that is narrow'
Though Rule was considered radical when she first
started addressing homosexual rights, she now draws
criticism for not being radical
enough. Rule believes in integration — she thinks lesbians and gay men should
join together and fight for an
====^^^=====^=^===== equal role in today's society.
"Those of us who 'came out' before there was a movement are
made a myth of — we're amazing. On the other hand, there are people who are very critical of the integrationist stand we take. We're
not radical enough, we accomodate.
"If there are novels needed now, in terms of novels of understanding, then they're novels that continue to suggest larger kinds of integration — not just for gay people — to keep people from being
isolated in their own values, living a world where they constantly
have to confront all the different kinds of value systems.
"That's the world we actually live in, unless we isolate ourselves,
as I see people doing. People live in apartment blocks with guards at
the gate and people have been screened to see how much money they
make or what church they belong to."
It was her search for a broader society that brought Rule to Galiano
Island, where she has lived almost seven years with her long-time
companion Helen. Sitting in her house that's tucked in a coastal
forest overlooking the Georgia Strait, Rule is relaxed.
"It's dangerous for a writer to be locked into a world that's narrow in interest," she says. "Here there's so few of us that we all need
to know each other. I know lots more people on the island than I did
in the city. It's a richer human world."
Rule's values of integration are as strong now as when she first
developed them while growing up in the United States. Her father
was a travelling salesman, and the family was always on the road.
Every few months Rule faced different schools and different environments, but she says the experience was positive.
"I learned a lot, that what one community considered absolute —
what was good, what was bad — another community didn't. And
therefore I began to distinguish between what I decided was right and
wrong and what other people did.
"In California I went to a multi-racial school. In St. Louis the
schools were segregated, the movies were segregated. When you
walked along the streets the black kids were supposed to get in the
gutter. They did, but then they'd spit at you."
Because of constant travelling Rule didn't learn to read until she
went to a private school in eighth grade. She decided to become a
writer when she realized most books around her weren't telling the
full truth. She wanted to explore hidden aspects of society.
Through her writing, Rule has continually explored and exposed
what society hides — especially homosexuality. She attends meetings
and gives occasional workshops, but most of her support for lesbian
rights has been through writing. Aside from her books, she has a
regular column in Body Politic, Canada's largest gay newspaper.
Rule wants to see a unified lesbian and gay movement, although
she recognizes tensions within such a movement.
"To have sexual orientation in common doesn't necessarily mean
you have that much else in common. When the negative political
pressure is on we are much better at getting someplace. When the
Anita Bryants attack, the people in rich closets write cheques, if they
won't do anything else.
"There'll be an issue that everybody will co-operate on, and that'll
give everyone a real high, and suddenly sado-masochism must come
into the movement or it must stay out and everyone's fighting," Rule
"I think we have a sense of community — under seige. It's much
better than it used to be.
"Your generation probably has an attitude of wanting to be accepting and tolerant and not put down any kind of sexual lifestyle —
people living together who aren't married, who have kids when
they're not married and gay people." Page 2

Faix Brown
La Traviata
Operatic genius Winifred Faix
Brown recently led the Vancouver
Opera Association to a successful
production of Guiseppe Verdi's La
Traviata. As heroine Violetta, Faix
Brown reached a level unmatched
by others in the cast. She did justice
to the heroine's emotional struggles. And at 29, she is relatively
young to be such a well established
opera singer.
La Traviata tells the story of
Violetta, who is dying of consumption and falls in love with Alfredo as
she listens to his declaration of love.
But Alfredo's father intervenes,
and the couple is separated until
Violetta's death. In a moving duet,
Violetta and Alfredo pour out an
impassioned reaffirmation of their
love, thereby making the death
almost anticlimatic.
Lavish scenery, brilliant
costumes, and smooth but vital
choreography complimented the
VOA's musical competency,
though at times the orchestra had
trouble getting out of the pit.
Carlo Bini, as Violetta's lover
Alfredo, captured the passions and
sorrows with which he is faced.
Despite the predictably shallow
love story, the sensitivity of Faix
Brown and Bini as performers captures Viloetta and Alfredo's struggle and leaves the audience convinced of their romance's tragedy.

Church acceptance slow, as gays find God
The woman with the ponytail
leaned forward and said, "Actually, I'm amazed how much Christianity is discussed here."
On a couch across the room, a
couple of men jested and a third
studied some scientific tables. A
banner, declaring UBC Gays and
Lesbians, covered the cramped
room's entire third wall. The door
took up most of the fourth wall.
"I think the interest revolves
around how churches — both gay
and straight — are reacting to gays
and lesbians," the woman continued. "Most people involved
want to make a better church, a truly Christian church."
A new phenomena is occuring in
ecumenical circles. Gays are beginning to take an active role in their
churches. The gays' interest in
church policy reflect general public
interest in religion. And although
few people are actively involved in
churches, 83 per cent of Canadians
claim church affiliation, according
to latest census figures.
Gay men and lesbians working
with the church to change doctrine
held a nondenominational service
Feb. 1 in SUB. It was a typical
liberal protestant service. Ten people sat in a room together, said
prayers, sang guitar-accompanied
hymns, and heard a sermon.
God has blessed certain people
with homosexual orientation, and
these people should celebrate their
God-given sexuality, said the service's woman preacher, in opposition to common Christian attitudes.
The preacher, a United Church
candidate for ministry in her last
year of studies, preferred to remain
anonymous because of "present
personal involvements."
"Homosexuality is not a sin,"
she said, adding that biblical
literature's attitude toward
homosexuality is misinterpreted.
"I once told a woman who claimed the Bible forbade homosexuality
that Biblical scholars now say the
Bible does not explicitly forbid
homosexuality. She just said, 'I
don't care what the Bible says, I
just know it's wrong.' "
"To forbid homosexuality orientated people to make serious corn-

mitments to each other constitutes

United Church ministry candidate.
"The issue in Sodom and

Biblical themes,  and are as applicable to gays as to straights."
Both candidates are dedicated to
the United Church, which is completing a controversial report on
sexuality, titled In the Image of
God: Male and Female. The report
favors recognition of homosexual
The United Church is also completing a report on the possible ordination of gays, and recently accepted an openly gay person as a
ministry candidate.
The same church, to which 17 per
cent of Canadians belong, has
political clout. Five clergy are in the
House of Commons, and UBC
chaplain George Hermanson stressed members are active in UBC student politics.
"If the church moves in the direction of accepting homosexuality,
society is likely to follow," he said.
"The (forthcoming) report will
probably be accepted by 1986," he
added. "It will say sexual orientation is given but that homosexuals
must remain celibate."
Hermanson said he believes the
next step will be for the church to
accept homosexuality as positive.
"The study is one step towards
discussing the mixed up sexual attitudes we have," agreed the
woman ministry candidate.
"It's a great study document,"
Siksay said. "An atmosphere where
gays and lesbians can talk with
others must be created."
But whether a change in churches' attitude towards gays will
change the society's views about
homosexuality is questionable. And
a largely conservative church clergy
that believes in strict Biblical interpretation stands in the way of many
The largest active Christian
groups at UBC are evangelicals, like
the Inter Varsity Christian
fellowship, which considers
homosexuality to be sinful. But,
though vocal, evangelicals comprise
a low percentage of Canadians.
"Paul classifies homosexuality as
a 'degrading passion, and an abandonment of natural functions',"according to UBC baptist chaplain
Keith D'Eall.
Hell is the ultimate punishment
for all sinners, including homosexuals, D'Eall said. But he does not
consider homosexuals to be greater
sinners than himself.
He said he believes homosexuality is taught and probably results
from all societies' sins.
The Roman Catholic church,
Canada's largest, has a homosexual
support group, Dignity, and is increasingly discussing homosexual
issues, said UBC chaplain Brunon
Whatever, the Catholic church is
influential. Many look to the Pope
for guidance in major issues, including abortion and nuclear disarmament .
"Just think how much reaction
the eight Catholic bishops' report
on the economy has caused," said
Roman Catholics accept the concept of homosexual orientation, but
they still consider homosexual acts
to be sinful, he added. "Homosex-
ually oriented people are accepted
into religious communities provided
the're celibate just as I am."
According to Tesolin, there is no
major opposition to the Roman
Catholic church's current stand on
But Canada's second largest
church, the Anglicans, feel differently. This church ordains
celibate homosexual priests and will
generally ignore the issue of a person's sexual preference if he is
discrete, said Anglican chaplain
Representatives of the
Metropolitan Church, which serves
minorities including gays, could not
be reached for comment.
All churches are moving slowly
on the issue of gay rights and gay
participation. Despite the fact that
the churches' importance is declining, any change in a church's stance
on homosexuality will have considerable impact, both Hermanson
and Tesolin agreed.
Gay counsellor blacklisted by human resources
Confusion, allegations of a
frame-up, and public indignation
have forced the B.C. ombudsoffice
to reopen the Rob Joyce case.
Joyce was fired last year from his
position of job counsellor at the
Granville street Senator Project for
juvenile prostitutes following
charges of unprofessional conduct.
A 16-year-old alleged Joyce paid
him for oral sex. But the boy
retracted his statement last October, Joyce said at a Feb. 3 rally
which marked the first anniversary
of his firing. The rally was sponsored by the Vancouver-based Gay
Right Union.
"The human resources ministry
has not accepted the boy's retraction," said Joyce. "They feel the
information is not relevant to clear
my name."
In addition to being fired Joyce
was placed on the human resources
ministry's controversial child abuse
Joyce says he has been unable to
get his name off and has no legal
recourse — unless he is formally
"We want them to charge me so
we can present our evidence," said
The child abuse registry creates a
system of secret tribunals with no
appeal, said Gay Rights Union
spokesperson Richard Banner.
"The only way to clear Joyce's
name now is if charges are laid so a
judge can rule that he is innocent."
Safeguards such as judicial board
of appeal need to be built into the
present system, Banner said.
The current ombudsoffice investigation  will  examine  the  ap
propriateness of putting Joyce's
name on the registry and will be
more detailed than the previous investigation, ombudsperson Karl
Friedman said recently.
"The previous investigation did
not touch on the actual substance
of the case, it only looked at some
of the procedures used by the
human resources ministry. The new
investigation will deal with questions of substance," said Friedman.
New information about the
motives for Joyce's firing has led to
a third ombudsoffice investigation.
"I've received additional information which means there may be
more to the story than what was on
the record," Friedman said.
"We are looking at it afresh. I
want to get to the bottom of this
and determine once and for all the
answers to all the allegations.
"It has dragged on for too long,
and I am concerned not just about
the complainant in this issue, but
about the public which is being
given various stories on what the
child abuse registry has or has not
done in this case."
Joyce charges the allegations
against him are an attempt to use
his homosexuality as an excuse to
persecute him because he refused to
prepare a document specifying illicit drug and sexual activity in the
Senator hostel.
"Two days after my refusal the
false allegation was lodged," Joyce
said. "They knew it wasn't true. I
had no idea they would be so
Joyce said he voiced his concern
over the activities at the Senator,
but he felt the preparation of an official report with names and times
would diminish his effectiveness as
a counsellor. "There is a code of
ethics on the street. You have to
understand the code to work with
these people."
The initial ombudsoffice investigation recommended the
human resources ministry
reinvestigate the allegation and permit Joyce to appeal the presence of
his name on the registry. But the
ministry did not implement these
recommendations, said Joyce.
Ministry officials refused to comment about the case. Joyce was not
surprised: "They're terrified. They
know they botched it."
Joyce is critical of the ministry's
delaying tactics in investigating his
case. The ministry keeps saying they
are reviewing the case, but has
taken no real action, he said.
"Their charges are unsubstantiated and as a result I've gone from
one of the best counsellors in the city to unemployable," said Joyce.
"I'll be on welfare in about a
The ombudsoffice requested the
human resources minitry to reopen
the case following the boy's retraction last October. But human
resources decided to stand by its
original decision despite the ombudsoffice conclusion there were
serious flaws in the ministry's procedure of placing Joyce's name on
the child abuse registry.
Joyce has four lawsuits pending
against the human resources
ministry. They include the removal
of his name from the registry, compensation for wrongful dismissal,
defamation of character, and conspiracy.

The Boys in the Band
By Mart Crowley
Directed by Zim
At Waterfront theatre
Granville Island, to Feb. 12, 15-19
First performed in 1968,
playwright Mart Crowley's The
Boys in the Band gathers together
gay men who are celebrating a birthday. It is Harold's birthday, but
he is the last to arrive.
The party takes place in a nicely
— eery rodln photo
furnished New York apartment.
The host is Michael (Keith Gordey),
who at first glance appears comfortable and well adjusted with his sexuality. When the play opens, his
greatest concern is his receding
hairline. The first uninvited guest is
Donald (Guy Babineau), the person
to whom Michael is closest. But
before the first act is over, another
uninvited guest — Michael's
"straight" college friend, Alan
(Gerry Bean) — will make another
entrance, turning the party, and
play, into revelation.
The other six characters, as
Crowley describes them, are types.
Emory (Gregg Ernst) is the token
queen. Hank is athletic, and has left
his family for Larry, who is sexually
promiscuous. Harold, like Michael,
is an aging homosexual who is worried about his looks, and has
managed to disfigure his face. Bernard is the sole black character.
In a bad production, the
assembly of established types might
be embarrassing, and even offensive; it may give the impression of

the Boys in the Band is a study in
relationships: Michael and Donald,
Larry and Hank, Emory and Bernard, and others whose ties with
each other are revealed during the

fears he is becoming.

Hosanna examines relations
Hosanna is a powerful play that attempts to
destroy misconceptions about homosexuals. It
shows a gay couple struggling to understand
themselves as they grow older and experiencing
difficulties that occur in any relationship.
By Michel Tremblay
Translated by J. Van Burek and
Bill Glassco
Directed by Catherine Caines
At City Stage, until Feb. 12
Hosanna, brilliantly played by David
Mac Lean, is a stereotypical homosexual in drag.
He spends his time by gazing into a mirror surrounded by bottles of perfume and make-up and
parading effeminately around his shabby apartment.
Hosanna's lover, Cuirette, is a macho biker in
black leather and studs. Ironically, we later
discover that Cuirette, played by Allan Morgan,
pays for his keep by doing all of the cooking and
Cuirette's and Hosanna's four year old relationship is at a crisis point. They bicker incessantly. Cuirette complains about the stink of perfume in the air, and Hosanna seizes every opportunity to remind Cuirette that he is growing fat.
Their bickering is continually interupted by
telephone calls and Hosanna's hilarious but
biting comments to her unseen rival, Sandra.
After a mysterious phone call and more
fighting, Cuirette storms out leaving Hosanna
with the impression he is going back to Sandra's
party to meet another man.
Although entertaining, the rapid pace of the
first act leaves the audience overwhelmed by the
bitterness of the comments which are flung back
and forth. It is not until Hosanna begins to
reveal the cause for this tension during the
slower paced second act that the play becomes
truly enjoyable.
The best moments of the play occur when
Hosanna is alone on stage and painfully tells the
audience about the terrible thing which has just
happened to him. His life-long dream of appearing at a party dressed as Elizabeth Taylor (as
Cleopatra) has been ridiculed by gay friends.
Vanity and a short sighted desire to be a woman
have led to his downfall as the area's drag
Cuirette returns during Hosanna's tearful
description of the party where he found his
friends and rivals dressed as Cleopatra as well.
The ensuing scene is tense. Cuirette tries to
console Hosanna who rejects his attempts at
reconciliation. Despite Hosanna's defensive attitude, the love between the two is apparent.
When Cuirette tells Hosanna he loves him as
Claude the man, and not Claude pretending to
be Hosanna, Hosanna's acceptance of his sexuality is complete. He takes off his make-up,
stockings and bra, and the two embrace.
The play forces the audience to evaluate their
conceptions of gays and gay relationships. At
times, however, the characers appear too
The play would have been stronger with
characters who are not drag queens or bikers but
average men trying to come to terms with their
sexuality and aging.
characters who appear in conflict.
Larry (Richard G. Brandow) and
Hank (Kevin Murawsky) are
alienated from each other — each
feels misunderstood and betrayed.
But as The Boys in the Band progresses, it becomes clear that Hank
and Larry form an emotional core;
their tensions lead to a stronger
relationship. Michael's attempt to
control others through the
deprecating truth game backfires
when Larry and Hank become involved in it.
Crowley's strength as a
playwright is characterization
through language. Each character
has his own beat and style. Emory,
for example, is quick off the bat, and
makes not attempt to hide his sexuality behind a "straight" — unlike
Alan or Michael. It is as if Emory
has been hurt so many times before,
that he hides behind his outlandish
behavior. Dressed in bermuda
shorts and a pink sweater, he
trumpets his sexual orientation with
glee and wit — but never malice.
Emory is like Shakespeare's Fool.
He is too flamboyant but gets
responses from others.
That Emory succeeds as a
character and doesn't succumb to
the level of Cliff Gorman's portrayal in William Friedkin's 1969
film of the play is an indication of
couple. The feelings of jealousy,
resentment, and betrayal, and finally mutual understanding are almost
perfectly rendered. There is an affecting moment in Act II when
Larry and Hank finally reconcile
and kiss, while Michael is busy slipping into his fated fall by taunting
Alan about his sexuality. Alan
doesn't admit to homosexuality,
but his orientation is obvious in actor Gerry Bean's gestures and
movements — especially when he
slowly closes a personal telephone
directory that has a close male
friend's number.
The Boys in the Band takes its
characters — and us — through
catharsis. At the heart of it is
Crowley's theory that if characters
get together and lash out at each
other, their pretensions will be
stripped away, exposing the truth
underneath. The play has brilliant,
witty language — the lines seem to
ricochet off each character.
But the play's pat Freudian,
psychoanalytical answers may seem
outdated today. Most homosexuals
are more than the sum of
dominating parents and repressed
sexualities. The portrait that
Crowley and director Zim paint is
dark, but the actors who embody this production have made
their characters real; you don't get
The characters of Hank and Larry
form the play's emotional core.
While they manage to reconcile
differences, Michael slips
into his fated fall.
actor Gregg Ernst's skills. He personifies a vital force in the play.
Others in the cast are equally impressive. Keith Gordey, who as
Michael attempts to be the party's
master of ceremonies, exhibits proper control over his characterization. But Michael cannot control
others because he himself is
undergoing emotional turmoil and
Also, Brandow's Larry and
Murawsky's Hank make a perfect
the feeling that you're watching
stereotypes on stage. That is largely
due to director Zim, who keeps the
action moving on the split-level
Even if one tends to reject
Crowley's analysis of homosexuals
and homosexuality, the play is still
powerful — and the performances
in the current Genesis Players production of the play make it worthwhile to join The Boys in the
Band. Page 6

All her life Suzanne has
adored animals. So no one was
surprised when she announced
the opening of her very own
Animal Shelter.
She built her business the
hard way, with far more grit
and discipline than money or
experience. How ironic then,
that just when things are going
well, there's another kind of
Suzanne's become quite the
social butterfly. Everything she does,
she overdoes, including drinking
beyond her limit too often. She
doesn't realise there are equally good
reasons for self-discipline now as there
were when she was just starting out.
Suzanne's at the crossroads. She
can protect her future by opting for
a moderate lifestyle, including the
sensible enjoyment of beer, wine or
spirits. Or she can gamble.
If you were Suzanne, which
would you choose?
We believe in moderation and
we ve been saying so since /'/?•/. Friday, February 11,1983

Peek inside controversial culture
Like a curious voyeur, I started
to read Flaunting It by turning to an
essay" entitled Men Loving Boys
Loving Men.
Curiosity had driven me to find
out why Toronto police in 1977
charged Pink Triangle Press and its
directors with distributing material
through the mail which was labelled
immoral, indecent or scurrilous.
Flaunting It
An anthology edited by Ed Jackson
and Stan Persky
New Star Books and Pink Triangle
$8.95 at the UBC Bookstore
I was shocked and confused.
Confused because Men Loving
Boys Loving Men puts forward the
simple proposition that an adult
male can support and love a young
male and that the relationship can
be mutual. Shocked because the
authorities (police and government)
would stomp on the press for
presenting controversial ideas to the
community even though the content
wasn't in the least explicit.
I was also surprised to read that
the notorious essay received as
much debate from within gay/lesbian and feminist circles as from the
mainstream heterosexual media.
But that is what Flaunting It is all
about — politics.
In a predominantly heterosexual
society where gay/lesbian lifestyles
are deliberately and almost totally
surpressed every aspect of life
becomes political.
The book devotes one section to
the controversy surrounding Men
Loving Boys Loving Men from the
"gay" community's perspective but
also covers other more crucial
aspects of gay politics and life.

Bim's music lyrically is very much
in tune with the times. Songs like
Half Hearted, a song Bim says is

what's happening in the '80s.

AMS democracy questioned
I would like to correct a mistake
made by Craig Brooks in Tuesday's
front page story, Another One Bites
the Rust, pertaining to Michael
Shaw's resignation as Vice-
president academic. Shaw is
reported to have come under fire
last year at an "Alma Mater Society
sponsored forum on cutbacks"
when "he claimed cutbacks were
not an issue". The forum in fact,
was sponsored by the students for
an accessible education, and the
AMS was in no way involved.
I make this correction to clarify
any misconception people may have
about the role the AMS has performed in recent years where student aid, accessibility, cutbacks,
and political issues in general are
For example, in the spring of
1981 a rally was organized by the
student accessibility committee and
sponsored by the AMS.
It was attended by at least 1,000
concerned students. Many of these
students continued the rally by marching across the campus demanding
concrete action from administration president Doug Kenny. The
event drew much public attention
and would have been an excellent
launching pad from which to confront the provincial government on
questions of student needs in the
area of university education.
When committee members attempted to make an appointment
with the minister of science and
universities, Pat McGeer, (who
hadn't been on campus in 2 years)
AMS president Marlea Haugen
phoned the ministry to cancel the
The accessibility committee
which had been so successful in
amassing a student response, was
soon after badmouthed, called
autocratic by many AMS council
members, and systematically stripped of its committee status. This,
my friend, was AMS democracy.
The fall of 1981 saw a con-
cilliatory AMS attempt to resurrect
the committee in such a way as to
render it impotent. It was okay to
protest cutbacks and tuition fees
but for God's sake not in public.
The old committee had lost interest
and quit en masse.
The forum attended by Michael
Shaw was one of several major
events sponsored by SAE. Others
such as Black Tuesday in January
of 1982 attracted some attention for
the Vancouver media but very little
interest was shown by students
themselves. AMS types like Dave
Frank, Cliff Stewart and James
Hollis's persistent aim was to
peacefully negotiate with UBC's administration; to peacefully
negotiate with the provincial
government; not to ruffle feathers
in the process. That is, not to ruin
their resumes.
Eventually, the SAE was bought
out by the AMS with promises from
Frank and Stewart that the student
'Ranting and Raving'
I am beginning to get rather annoyed with all the recent commotion by the local UBC womens
group (not to mention all other extremist womens groups) over the
"pornography" problem at UBC.
The womens group stated that
the UBC bookstore should not sell
"pornographic material" such as
Playboy and Penthouse as they
found these publications to contain
sexist and racist text. Apparently,
these publications perpetuate the
fact, or myth, that males dominates
Having never even contemplated
casting a glance at Playgirl, I do not
know a whole lot about the material
it contains. However, according to
Bob Saye of CFOX's the Planet,
Playgirl contains material which is
on par with the so-called male
dominating oriented magazines.
I can't say that I have seen or
heard of any racial mens groups
complaining about how men are exploited in the text of Playgirl. The
womens groups answer to this is
that mostly men buy Playgirl. Well
how would they know that? Do
they survey all the magazine stores
to see which sex buys which
magazine? I doubt it.
The womens groups are merely
comprised of a very few genuinely
concerned females and a whole lot
of females who have nothing better
to do than rant and rave over
nothing. Why don't you put down
your pickets and give us a break?
If you radical women are really
concerned about sexist, racist and
pornographic publications, I suggest you go to the UBC bookstore
and pick up a copy of the latest National Lampoon. This publication is
many times more sexist and racist
then Playboy and Penthouse combined.
The Lampoon redicules
homosexuality and lesbianism as
well as every race under the sun at
least a dozen times in each monthly
issue. Why isn't the womens group
calling for the removal of National
Lampoon from the UBC
bookstore's shelves?
We all understand that the depiction of and or description of child
exploitation, rape and brutality
towards women has no place in
society and hence women deserve
support when trying to combat it.
However, there is nothing wrong
with the mild eroticism of Playboy
or Penthouse.
It would be unconstitutional to
deprive anybody of his rights to
purchase either magazine. Let the
consumer have the choice of either
ignoring the Playboy and Penthouse magazine stands or of purchasing either magazine. Moral oppression is, like slavery, a disease
whose cure brings freedom.

concerns pertaining to cutbacks and
aid would be heard — that the AMS
would have to become political! In
the spring term of 1982, Frank,
Stewart, and a host of resume-
collectors were elected. Since that
time, the AMS has succeeded in doing what it does best where political
issues are concerned: sweet fuck all.
Frank's press statements have
found space on the pages of The
Ubyssey and nowhere else. A four
year engineering program may be
approved, tuition increases totalling
38 per cent during the past two
years have been passed by the board
of governors, and cutbacks continue to be mapped out — all
without a peep from the AMS.
Student leaders may have been
responsible for questioning social
and political values and attitudes in
past years, but the AMS remains an
apolitical bastion of unquestioning

Not my Day
Rich Day's comments to student
council regarding the rubber-doll
incident in the Pit are typical of the
engineering undergraduate society's
insensitivity to actions which are
racist and sexist when he says, "The
question we have to ask is who is
going to draw the line and where?"
He shows his inability to draw lines
or make distinctions anywhere,
The EUS administration seems to
have established a tradition of abstaining from moral decisions of any
sort. The hackers in the EUS never
learn. Give them rape, violence and
bigotry and they stand up for the
rights of free expression. No stand
is too asinine for the leaders of the
If Rich Day thinks that "dinner
table burps" are comparable to
symbolic acts of rape, he is then in
my view certifiably insane — and
has no business being my representative on council.

in engineering stood up and called
for some intelligent moral policy
decisions from their administration.

"The popular notion about marriage and love is that they are
synonymous, that they spring from the same motives, and cover the same
human needs. Like most popular notions this also rests not on actual facts,
but on superstition.
Marriage and love have nothing in common; they are as far apart as the
poles; are, in fact, antagonistic to each other. No doubt some marriages
have been the result of love. Not, however, because love could assert itself
only in marriage; much rather is it because few people can completely
outgrow a convention. There are today large numbers of men and women
to whom marriage is naught but a farce, but who submit to it for the sake
of public opinion. While it is true that some marriages are based on love,
and while it is equally true that in some cases love continues in married life,
it does so regardless of marriage, and not because of it."

Skulking gears crude
Each time the engineers on campus do something obnoxious to
others, they explain it away with the
fact that it's 'tradition.' They then
proceed to boast about all the work
they do for charity, which they
seem to feel excuses their asinine
behaviour at other times.
I don't really care how old the
'tradition' is, nor do I care about
how much charity work they do,
neither of these is any excuse for being obnoxious to fellow students.
The incident that I am referring to
is the annual engineer 'skulk'
which occurred Sunday, Feb. 6 at 1
a.m. I am a resident of Gage
Towers and, as such, I was rudely
woken up at one in the morning
after having been asleep for two
Below my window was a group of
engineering students loudly singing
crude songs and swearing at
residents. I suppose they think that
angering students in the residences
is going to 'kick off Engineering
Week, and is going to encourage(?)
student support. I, for one, was extremely angered by the incident as
being in fifth year education, I am
in the middle of a four week prac-
ticum. This requires that I wake up
at 6:30 a.m. every day. Other people I know are in the middle of midterms right now and need a good
night's sleep as well.
If the engineers are the self-
sacrificing group they claim to be, I
feel that an apology to the students
in the residences, and an 'axing' of
this tradition would be in order.
I am witholding my name for fear
of retribution.

EUS Hn bed9 with gay-lesbian week committee
As coordinator of gay-lesbian
week 1983,1 would like to thank the
engineers for their assistance in
publicizing the week's events.
Without their aid and support, we
could not have made our presence
on campus so widely known.
Despite the straightened financial
circumstances of the EUS itself, our
supporters among the engineers
managed to organize and pay for
the aerial drop along main mall.
I particularly wish to extend a
special thanks to the entire committee who volunteered to wrap the
corks, a task which must have taken
hours. The additional devotion of
space in the neusletter to advertise
the week was also unprecedented.
I hope that this venture will prove
to be only the beginning of a long
and fruitful association between
engineers and gays and lesbians of
I would also like to correct an impression currently circulating in
some quarters that these same fine
people were responsible for the
"Up the Butt Dance" advertisement. We find this improbable, to
say the very least.
It is inconceivable that those people who showed the courage, wit
and flair to advertise our cause in so
novel a manner as an aerial drop
would produce so tacky and puerile
an effort as those posters, which
could be dismissed soley on the
grounds of poor artwork. Once
again, the general public appears to
be all too ready to besmirch the
good name of the much maligned
engineers. Shame.

Police nab four after bike heists
Police captured four suspected
bicycle thieves on the UBC campus
last week.
"On Feb. 3 Traffic and Security
pursued and arrested two non-
student males," RCMP constable
Mike Ryan said Thursday. Both
were charged with theft over $200
and possession of stolen property.
"They both face a 10 year maximum penalty, but you'll never see
them get that in a million years,"
Ryan said.
"They led us to a Burnaby fence,
but neither suspect will testify
against him due to his violent
past," Ryan said.
On Feb. 7 two other non-students
were caught tampering with a bicycle, and one was apprehended by
four students. "Subsequently, on
the morning of the eighth the other
individual was arrested at home,"
Ryan said. Both were charged with
theft and possession of stolen property.
Jim Rowed, a student who helped
apprehend the first two suspects
says the number of campus bicycle
robberies raises serious questions
about campus security.
"In one day, six bikes were stolen
outside the law building three or
four weeks ago," Rowed said.
"And there was a rash of thefts
before Christmas."
Ryan said the estimated value of
Students shout at
South African
McGill univerisity students shouted
down a South African Foundation,
speaker who favors continued investment in the racially segregated
country recently.
"Divestment is usually regarded
by well-meaning but ill-informed
people as bringing economic
pressure on the South African
government," John Chettle told 50
But Chettle said divestment is ineffective because only one per cent
of all South African investment
comes from the U.S. and Canada's
share is even smaller. The McGill
South Africa Committee estimates
total U.S. investment is closer to 25
per cent.
During the speech students heckled and jeered the representative of
SAF which is an organization of
business people and former government officials pushing for gradual
reform of South Africa's apartheid
social structure.
"All you are saying, is give apartheid a chance," students chanted.
A unsettled Chettle replied, "No.
That is precisely what I'm not saying."
After the incident, Chettle said
he could have spent his time more
productively elsewhere.
Even before Chettle arrived at
McGill controversy flared. Some
students called the student society's
invitation for Chettle to speak
The McGill student society supports a divestment policy.
At an emergency council meeting
Chettle opponents argued the society's policy to have nothing to do
with anyone supporting apartheid
was clear.
But other councillors said Chettle's visit would promote awareness
and encourage dialogue.
After the speech South Africa
committee member Elise Moser said
Chettle's approach was dishonest.
"He assumed his audience was
made up of ignorant or stupid people. He never really answered any
questions," she said.
Island gears
The B.C. government announced
Wednesday it will provide
preliminary planning funds for a
$15 million science and engineering
facility at the University of Victoria.
UVic will have a five year
engineering program which will initially concentrate on various branches of computer engineering.
Originally scheduled to open this
September, the faculty will probably open in September 1984.
Engineering will soon be offered
at all three B.C. universities. SFU
recently added first and second year
engineering courses for September,
following a provincial government
promise of $500,000.
Mutual disarmament
mission improbable
A nuclear freeze tomorrow would
cause "enormous economic disruption," an Educators for Nuclear
Disarmament member said Thursday.
"The military-industrial complex
is so deeply imbedded in the U.S.
and the U.S.S.R. that the long-term
goal of complete disarmament will
be difficult to achieve," Dr. Alan
Brain told 25 people in Computer
Science 200.
The only major difference between the U.S. and the U.S.S.R. is
that in the U.S. "the impetus for
technological change is from within
corporations," said Brian, whereas
in the U.S.S.R. the impetus comes
from trying to keep up with the
Brain's speech, Disarmament and
Socialism, centred on a socio
economic analysis of nuclear
weapons. "The development of
modern weaponry is connected with
the international State system,
which is in turn linked to the history
of capitalism," he said.
There has been an increasingly
close alliance between corporations
and the State since World War I,
said Brain. In the U.S. "no big
defence corporation goes
bankrupt", and a strong arms lobby exists, he said.
Brain urged people to fight further interlocking of the state with
the military.
Brain called for a "complete
restructuring of society" and a
"grassroots, internationally
organized system of socialism",
which would not allow the incredible waste and stupidity of nuclear
weapons and delivery systems.
stolen bikes in 1982 is at least
Ryan applauded the four
students who apprehended the
thief. "A citizen can arrest any person they find committing an indictable offence," Ryan said.
Ryan said a guarded compound
would be the ideal measure, to prevent bicycle crime but acknowledged the plan's impracticality.
"You can't beat a Kyrptonite
lock," he said. "But it's only as
good as what it's attached to.
We've had cases where people cut
down a tree a bike was locked to
and stole the bike."
Students should organize against
bike thieves Rowed said.
Ryan said thieves generally steal

of the line Apollos.

Unemployment predicted
There are few jobs behind the
green door this year.
So found out about 250 students
Thursday at the annual commerce
undergraduate society sponsored
Green Door gathering.
During the event, designed to inform students about various
commerce-related fields, industry
representatives continually emphasized the current lack of positions, but all promised a better
"This recession had caught us
off-guard," said chartered accountant representative Heather Shannon. Her firm of Clarkson Gordon
will hire only four students this
year, instead of the normal 15 to 20.
And the shortage of students will
now spell trouble for the accounting
profession five years from now,
when there is a shortage of
managers, she said. Private industry
will also raid the few students the
accounting firms have been able to
hire and train, she said.
Shannon says the accounting profession is handling the recession
probably better than either
engineering or law.
She called the recent lay-offs of
CA students "unfortunate," since
the CA program requires employment to complete the designation's
requirements. And that requirement "may change" due to the current economic conditions, she said.
"J feel sorry for them."
Canada's three accounting
societies are being "more flexible"
in such requirements, according to

With the prospect of losing more than $3,000 if 1982-83 telephone

Previously, the phone numbers of students were sold at the information booth and the bookstore. But with its action Thursday, student council members decided to direct their energies to sales.

General Accountants. "We don't
kick them out anymore if they get
laid off."
Rick Lightheart of the society of
management accountants said the
accounting and computer science
fields were probably the best fields
of employment prospects.
But while the accounting
seminars were well attended, the
computer science commerce option
had a very poor turnout.
B.C. Tel spokesperson Jorgen
Jensen said his company had implemented a hiring freeze. "But
wait for next year," he told the five
people listening to the computer
science option seminar.
"At the moment, prospects are
fairly lousy. In the long run, computers will be very much a growth
Jensen says it is unlikely B.C. Tel
will hire any students this summer.
Other large firms, such as I.C.B.C.
and B.C. Hydro are also not hiring
this summer, he said.
Monica Meyer, commerce 3,
turned pale when asked about her
summer job prospects in the current
depressed economy. "Final
employment upon graduation is
probably allright," she said.
"It's not who you are, it's who
you know," said Paul Sweeney,
(commerce 1.  "I am not worried
about when I graduate."
MacMillan Bloedell spokesperson Bob Matthews summed up the
current employment situation
which sees several thousand MB
employees on lay-off. "I am glad I
wasn't graduating at this time."
Many students said the current
recession would affect their future
job prospects since most employers
want practical experience. Page 16
