Police nab aquatic thieves
by Wolf Depner
Police made several arrests
last week after a rash of thefts at
UBC's Aquatic Centre.
The Aquatic Centre has been
flooded with thefts in the last
three weeks, much to the chagrin
of management and patrons.
The latest series of thefts
occurred last week, when lockers
were broken into and valuables
By last Thursday, the
Vancouver City Police and the
RCMP had made several arrests
in connection with the break-ins.
The first arrests were made at a
traffic accident Monday night
when police found stolen items
from the Aquatic Centre in one
of the vehicles involved.
The vehicle was occupied by
two males, aged sixteen and
seventeen, according to Aquatic
Centre staff. One of the
individuals arrested Monday was
arrested a second time
Thursday, after he and his
partner broke into fourteen
lockers at the Aquatic Centre
that morning, and made off with
credit cards and an undisclosed
amount of cash.
This time, the two individuals
were pulled over for not wearing
their seatbelts. At that time,
Vancouver police found and
recovered all the items reported
stolen from the Aquatic Centre
Thursday morning.
That same Thursday, two
other individuals, one juvenile
and one adult male, were caught
red-handed by the RCMP trying
to break into Aquatic Centre
The Aquatic Centre has long
been a target for thieves, and
according to one Aquatic Centre
staff member who wished to
remain anonymous, some of the
thefts could have been
prevented. The staff member
said the Centre's management
should have taken greater
security measures by increasing
the number of security patrols in
the men's locker room where
most of the thefts took place.
Aquatic Centre manager
Chris Neale vehemently rejects
the criticism. "We have done
everything possible to prevent
these thefts short of
compromising the privacy of
our patrons," he said last
Friday. "[The thieves] are
Neale says further security
measures will be implemented
in the near future, but refused
to announce any specific
changes publicly for security
The Aquatic Centre has not
been the only target for thieves

UBC to host conference on
post-secondary education
of a burnt out light during last Thursday night's
campus Safety Audit. Organized by Student Board
of Governors representative Heather Hermant and
AMS Safety Commissioners Cheng-Han Lee and
Yvette Leung, the audit's findings will be included
in a report on UBC's safety problems to the Board of
Governors in January. Organizers hope the audits will
spur Campus Planning and Development to improve
the campus' dismal lighting conditions and contribute
to a greater sense of safety among students.

With Canada's post-
secondary education system
facing its greatest funding crisis
in recent memory, UBC will
host a major forum on the future
of post-secondary education
later this week.
The two-day forum,
organized by the AMS, will
bring together groups with wide-
ranging ideas on the future ofthe
educational system. Delegates
include members of
government, labour, business,
faculty and administration, and
The conference kicks off this
Friday with a keynote address
from Skills, Training and
Labour Minister and possible
candidate for premier, Dan
"We hope that a good
discussion will occur among all
the stakeholders in post-
secondary education," said
David Borins, forum organizer
and AMS External Affairs Coordinator. "The conference will
set the basis for future debate in
concerns regarding higher level
"With the upcoming
election, it is important that
students be most informed and
actively involved in discussions over post-secondary
education—the area that effects
them most."
The conference consists of
three separate sessions, with
discussion topics including the
funding crisis in post-secondary
education, the role of post
secondary education in the
evolving provincial economy
and how the system should be
adapted to better meet students'
The sessions will be
followed by breakout groups
where delegates will debate
and discuss session topics.
These group sessions will be
recorded for a report to be
published thisjanuary.
Ian McCloud, a lawyer and
a delegate representing
business, urges students to
make their voice heard at the
"It is requisite that students
attend. Their concerns when it
comes to post-secondary
education are more likely to be
global in scope as opposed to
business, which are more likely
to be self-interested," McCloud
McLoud says he's
"impressed" with the AMS's
organization ofthe event and the
broad range of interests
"I'm pleased that the debate
to be entertained at this
conference is set to reach further
than just harping at the Federal
government for increased
funding," he said.

as delegates for the conference
should contact David Borins at

AMS Update -
What does Fee-Reallocation mean?
One of the referendum questions asks ubc students to re-allocate their
$7.00 Athletic Fee towards specific groups.  One of these groups is
World University Service of Canada (W.U.S.C.)
Out of the seven dollars to be reallocated, WUSC would receive 50 cents
towards the Refugee Sponsorship Program.  Each year, the WUSC ubc branch
uses the money from their current student levy to sponsor a refugee student to
come to Canada and study at ubc. The students apply for the WUSC scholarship from their country of refuge, whether in Kenya, Thailand or the former
Yugoslavia. The local committee acts as the Canadian legal sponsor to gain
landed immigrant status for the student. WUSC registers the sponsored student in courses, finds a place for the student to live with the help of ubc student housing and assists the student in adjusting to Canadian life. A scholarship provided by the ubc administration plus the existing student leVy allows
WUSC to fully financially support one student each year. With the fifty cent
increase, WUSC would be able to sponsor two students each year and build
up a surplus for emergencies.
Thanks to the all of the people who signed the petition. The AMS encourages ubc students to continue their support for their fellow students who are
not fortunate enough to have been born in a peaceful country like Canada.
For more information about WUSC, please contact Carett Pratt @ 228-4866.
Referendum '96 - In Search of Quorum...
We need only 3,000 students to vote YES for each of the referendum
questions in order for them to pass.  Issues include:  Childcare,
External and University Lobbying, CiTR, W.U.S.C. and Student
Resource Groups, including the Student Environment Centre.
Voting will take place between January 15th and 19th, 1996, during the regularly scheduled AMS elections.  Look for the referendum newspaper, which
will be coming out next week!

On Nov. 24 & 25, the AMS will be hosting the 1995 B.C. Forum on
Post-Secondary Education. Taking place in the SUB, the forum will
be attended by leaders from various stakeholder groups, including
labour, the private sector, university and colleges, government and students.
The purpose is to set out key issues and problems that must be addressed in
post-secondary education over the coming years.
The forum will consist of panel discussions led by leading experts. After
each panel session, there will be break-out discussion sessions.

50/20 Vision sees an easier path to change
by Irfan Dhalla
Being busy doesn't mean being
left out, according to a new
Vancouver-based social action
While many people, students
included, feel too busy to lobby
the government regarding social
or environmental issues, this
silent population may still have
strong views on issues like
deforestation in Clayoquot Sound
or French nuclear testing in the
South Pacific.
With this fact in mind, a group
of concerned Vancouverites have
set up a lobbying group called 20/
20 Vision. The name reflects the
group's philosophy: "$20 per
year and 20 minutes a month to
make a positive difference."
20/20 Coordinator Pru Moore
says people's schedules shouldn't
preclude them from becoming
"We are geared for busy
people, who feel overwhelmed
by the number of issues, but
would like to make a difference,"
Moore explained.
20/20's group of volunteers
researches environmental and
social issues and sends the details,
on a postcard detailing the issue,
to each subscriber. Included in
the postcard are the name and
address of a federal cabinet
minister for the the subscriber to

LGBQ: Little Sisters still waiting for court ruling
by Andrea Mason
one year and over a quarter-of-a-
million dollars in expenses later,
Little Sisters Bookstore in
Vancouver is still waiting to hear
the verdict in its case against
Canada Customs.
The precedent-setting court
case in which Little Sisters
challenged the right of customs
to seize so-called 'obscene'
literature was heard in the B.C.
Supreme Court from October to
December 1994.
Little Sisters, which carries
literature for Vancouver's gay,
lesbian, and bisexual
communities, has had its
shipments seized repeatedly since
1985. The confiscated articles
sometimes included publications
mishap surrounding the
vegetarian cookbook, The Politics
of Meat. Border guards glanced at
the cover, assumed the book
depicted gay sex, and seized it.
"They would have realised if
they had read a little ofthe book
like they are supposed to," noted
Mistysyn. And then there is the
double standard. Books
depicting gay sex are routinely
detained, whereas literature
involving heterosexual sex is
allowed through without any
difficulty. According to Fuller, The
Joy of Gay Sex was seized, while
the heterosexual equivalent, The
Joy of Sex, can be found on the
shelves of virtually any Canadian

"A gay and lesbian bookstore is one
of the few places where gays can see

-Ms. Fuller, Little Sisters Bookstore
allowed into mainstream
Litde Sisters decided to take
action last year. Fed up with
having to challenge each seizure
on a case by case basis, the store
is questioning the legality of
customs' powers of detainment.
The store argued that customs'
use of the term 'obscenity' is
unclear and criticized customs for
targeting gay and lesbian authors
and bookstores while being more
tolerant of heterosexual literature.
According to Kim Mistysyn of
Glad Day Books in Toronto, one
of the big problems is that
Customs officials receive little
training in pornography and free-
speech issues.
The only guidance they are
given is a two-hour seminar on
During the trial last year, many
witnesses from customs admitted
to this scanty training and still
others said they found
homosexuality "repulsive."
"Customs obviously does not
have the experience or education
to deal with books. They have
repeatedly demonstrated their
inability to keep things
consistent," declared Mistysyn.
The mistakes are revealing.
Mistysyn pointed to a recent
are left alone. Mistysyn attributes
this to the fact that border guards
do not have time to look through
the entire order of large
shipments going to major chains.
Independent bookstores
cannot afford to import books in
bulk and suspicious officials are
careful to search the shipments
headed for stores such as Glad
Day or Litde Sisters.
Just last year, Glad Day's
shipment of the famous
American author Samuel
Delany's book Madman was
seized, while the Cole's down the
street received its copies without
any difficulty.
Fuller commented that other
marginalised groups have also
been systematically targeted
recently. Pointing to problems
with prominent U.S. feminist Bell
Hooks' last work, Fuller said she
believes customs is beginning to
"widen its scope" of censorship
beyond gay and lesbian books to
include the literature of feminists
and people of colour.
In a recent interview with The
Advocate, Bruce Walsh of the
anti-censorship coalition
Censorstop commented that,
"Every gay bookseller in this
country has attempted to sell
their bookstores, but nobody
wants to buy them."
There is a lot of support for die
Litde Sisters initiative, as Customs
has a history of conflict with gay
and lesbian bookstores in
According to Mistysyn, the fact
that there are only three
specifically gay and lesbian
bookstores in Canada makes it
easy for officials to keep track of
the shipments imported by these
Glad Day has had its share of
hassles with the border guards.
After numerous instances of
prolonged shipment detention
without notification, the store was
forced to start importing through
a broker.
Although this is an extra
expense, it ensures that officials
will be forced to at least give
notice when they seize a
shipment at the Canada/U.S.
While Janine Fuller of Little
Sisters said "There is less
imposition of state will on the
private domain in Quebec," the
Montreal bookstore L'Androgyne
has also been on Custom's hit list
in the past.
Fuller admitted that
bookstores carrying gay,
lesbian, and bisexual literature
are starting to buckle under the
pressure. "We end up censoring
ourselves," said Fuller.
The result is that some
publications, such as the
lesbian erotic magazine Bad
Attitude, have "effectively
been banned in Canada," said
But Little Sisters continues to
be defiant, because, as Fuller
stated: "A gay and lesbian
bookstore is one ofthe few places
where gays can see their ideas
and history represented."

Reformers seek coalition
by Simon Rogers and
Sarah O'Donnell
In a bid for an increased
right-wing political presence
on campus, UBC's Young
Reform Party has announced
plans to form a coalition of
right-wing groups.
"The left is not the only
voice to be heard on
campus," Young Reformer
President John Weintraub
said. "If the right wants to be
loud and be heard, we must
be united."
Weintraub hopes a
coalition will strengthen the
right-wing's voice on campus
and challenge the conception
that the right is a monolithic
"We're interested in
generating and advancing
ideas. That means we are
looking for brain content,
irrespective of skin colour,"
Weintraub said.
The Young Reformers are
looking to ally with their
"natural constituency"-
business groups and "non-
political" organizations such
as the Objectivists and
religious clubs who are on
similar ideological ground.
Weintraub said the
coalition is an attempt to
"regain the support of
some groups who we were
alienated from in the past
due to our extreme
Instead of taking strong
positions on social issues, the
Young Reformers plan to
push their economic platform to the forefront of their
agenda-a platform they say
will not be compromised by
a coalition.
"We're not going to
become a political prostitute,
beholden to the special
interests of other groups,"
Weintraub said.
But it appears Weintraub
will not have any easy time
convincing many students of
the value of his coalition.
Heather Hermant and
Michael Hughes, the two
student representatives on
the Board of Governors who
campaigned as part of the
"Action Now" slate last
January, said Weintraub's
vision has some holes in it
Hermant feels Weintraub
is going about the coalition
the wrong way. "To say you
want to form a right wing
coalition means nothing on
this campus. A lot of people
don't identify with political
people gravitate towards
your vision. They don't
gravitate towards a label."
Even organizations
Weintraub is expecting
support from are reluctant to
When the Young
Conservatives were asked
whether they planned to join
the coalition, club member
Michael Palacz said "Why
would we want to join with
[the Young Reformers]? We
received more votes than
them [in the '93 federal
election]; we don't see eye to
eye on too many issues."
Colour Connected Against
Racism and the Women's
Centre had not heard of
Weintraub's intentions to
form a right-wing coalition,
but a Colour Connected
spokesperson said it is
"better to know what they're
thinking out in the open
because that way you can

The Ubyssey Scorsese gets lucky with Casino   sincerity put to musk

Oakridge and Granville 7
by Peter T. Chattaway
Casino opens with a
bang - literally.     Sam
(Robert   De
Niro)    steps
into    a   car
framed so perfectly on the
screen you just
know it's going
to explode. But
oh, what an explosion   it   is.
Catapulted in his
driver's    seat,
Rothstein soars
on the cusp of the
flames as a tenor's
aria bursts onto the
That pretty much
sets the pace for the
film as a whole. Casino frequently
flirts with cliches — it's especially
familiar if you've seen GoodFellas,
Martin Scorsese's last collaboration with De Niro, Joe Pesci, and
co-writer Nicholas Pileggi — but
Scorsese invests so much energy
in this venture that you can't help
but be transfixed by it all.
This is all the more remarkable
Because Rotnstein remains quite
opaque throughout his flash-
backed narrative. A casino manager who's got the art of gambling
down to a science, he's a professional businessman who never
lets on whether he actually enjoys his line of work, the sort of
anally retentive boss who, in the
midst of all that is garish, tawdry,
and indul-
ing her from the premises. Instead,
he marries her and gives her the
only key to a safety deposit box
worth a few million bucks. The
script never explains why an abnormally careful gambler would
let his guard down and put such
blind trust in this emotionally insecure stranger.

Vegas, badgers the chef for not
putting enough blueberries in his

these details.
This is particularly problematic
when Rothstein meets Ginger

pinching hustler he falls, in love
with when he ought to be eject-

Apparently De Niro
couldn't figure out his motivation
either; when Rothstein proposes
to Ginger, he delivers his lines so
formally it's left to Stone to be the
scene's emotional centre (thankfully, she pulls it off).
The script is similarly laconic
when it comes to the Rothsteins'
home life. We see their baby, but
only after a narrator tells us about
the kid (perhaps the thought of
Sharon Stone pregnant was too
much for the Image Control department). Much later, we see
their daughter at the age of eight,
but only after the parents' custody
battle begins. Nothing we see of
the Rothstein family comes close
to the textured irony of Nicky
Santoro (Joe Pesci) brushing
smuggled diamonds out of his
wife's hair or making breakfast for
his son after a late-
night hit. It's a
shame, really,
since De Niro does
prove, in other
scenes, that he
can display the
sort of vulnerability most roles
never offer him.
Pesci, for his
part, is as wickedly delightful
as ever — he
dominates Casino so assuredly that even
a stalwart
psycho like
James Woods
(who plays
pimp Lester
Diamond) capitulates
with a surprisingly reticent performance. Pesci has to be one of
the few actors who could slap an
ex-girlfriend, toss her down the
stairs and out the door, and still
get an audience's sympathetic
laughter with a terse "Be careful."
One minute he's the most violent,
irrational prick you ever saw; the
next he's actually trying to talk
some sense into his fellow
If it seems like Casino has no
greater aim than to plagiarize our
memory of GoodFellas, well, perhaps that is the case. But the ol'

Mercedes Sosa
Nov 18 at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre
by Chris Chiarenza
From the moment she walked on stage, Mercedes Sosa had the
crowd moving in their seats, if not on their feet, and it didn't stop
until long after the lights came on.
The Argentinian-born folk singer filled the theatre with a voice
as pure and strong as they come. Switching back and forth from
songs of poetic protest to beautiful ballads to upbeat classics, the
larger-than-life singer had her admirers standing, dancing, clapping and crying. Spontaneous standing ovations broke out at several points during the show and in the end her fans continued to
applaud and chant her name long after the final encore ended.
Even those who could not understand a word of Spanish could not
help but be moved by the purity and power in her voice. In a word,
it was beautiful.
Sosa sang mainly songs from her latest album. Gestures of Love,
but perhaps the most moving and lively moments of the show came
when she sang older favorites as 'La Maza' and 'Todo Cambia' and
when she finished the concert with the Latin American classic 'Maria
Maria.' These were the songs the audience came to hear her sing.
For many, they were reminders of the country that was once their
home as she sang of the injustices that forced them to leave.
But you didn't have to experience the injustice to understand the
message. It was a message of peace, of understanding and of coming together. But with her positive attitude it was mostly a message of hope.
Sosa was backed by an accomplished group of musicians who
lived up to the unenviable task of doing justice to her voice. The
communication between her and the band was like that between
best friends, and they conveyed this feeling to the crowd. Whether
she was singing or reciting prose or addressing a member of the
audience directly, Sosa seemed truly happy to be there with us,
almost as happy as we were to be there with her.
If I had to find a negative aspect, I would have to say that it was
that it ended. Mercedes Sosa is a truly unique and exceptional performer, a potent blend of sincerity, integrity and talent that is rarely
seen in Vancouver.

The Tattooed Map [Raincoastl
by Peter T. Chattaway
With its intricate graphic design, fold-out
maps, surreal plot twists and mysterious first-
person narrative. The Tattooed Map would
appear at first to draw from the same well as
the Griffin & Sabine trilogy. But Barbara
Hodgson - who founded Vancouver-based
Byzantium Books in 1992 with Griffin author
Nick Bantock — insists her first novel is of a
somewhat different breed.
"I think that's a likely comparison, as there
are so few illustrated novels," she says. "But
we [at Byzantium] are going to try to make
sure that people can see that there's a real
wide range of illustrated novels, and appreciate the differences."
For one thing. The Tattooed Map is designed like a journal not a set of letters
and postcards. While the main text is set
in clean polished type, the margins are
cluttered with receipts, pictures, newspaper clippings, and quick handwritten
travel budgeting. "In Griffin & Sabine, the
illustrations show the way that the characters express their ideas visually, but in
[The Tattooed Map] the illustrations
show how the characters observe the
world around them."
The journal is begun by one Lydia
Usher, who is touring North Africa with
her travelling companion, and former
lover, Christopher. One morning she
wakes up to find what appear to be

The importance of

The Importance of Being
at the Freddy Wood until Nov 25
by Sam Arnold & Tessa Moon
It is a lovely and absurd divan that
waits in front ofthe curtain at the Freddy
Wood Theatre's production of Oscar Wilde's The
Importance of Being Earnest, a fitting foreshadowing of the elegantly dotty play to follow.
When the curtain rises, it is seamlessly absorbed into a delicious set that hands the first
round of well-deserved applause to Scene Designer Christine Reimer.
Once the play begins, however, the set is
eclipsed by the foppish verbal fencing of
Algernon Moncrieff (Christopher Hawkey) and
Jack Worthing (Joel Spicer), two Victorian dandies who spend their time drinking wine from
polished little glasses, flashing brilliant smiles
under polished moustaches, mincing on polished
little black shoes, and eating little cucumber

Fairfax (Rebecca Harker)
and Cecily Cardew (Catriona
Leger) are the female complements to the two "earnest"
gentlemen, determined to marry
men by the name of Ernest.
A comedy of mildly morbid
errors     ensues     as     the
"bunburying" Algernon takes on
the role of Jack's mythical
brother Ernest Worthing, presumed dead at the very moment he turns up to
fall in very instantaneous love with Cecily, while
Gwendolen — believing her own beau Jack to
be named Ernest — turns up to drink oversweet-
ened tea and find Cecily engaged to a man similarly called Ernest.
Much precisely enunciated name-calling by
the two women beautifully portrays the
loopiness of polite society.

quite sure what time it is, and I found myself
very open to suggestion [there]. If somebody
had said, 'Time has slipped here, and you're
not really in the 1990s,' I would say, "Yeah, I
could believe that.'
"I really wanted to emphasize that these
characters are displaced - not only in place,
because that's what you do to yourself when you travel, but they are displaced in time."
This temporal flux is conveyed in
part through maps, lithographs and
souvenir photos that are older than
Casablanca, though Hodgson won't
say which ones are authentic. "I tried
to blur the difference between reality
and fiction so that, throughout the book,
there are places that do exist, but there
are also places that don't exist. I wanted
it to be so blurred that it didn't make a

they're forged, it's all something that contributes to that sense of mystery."
Hodgson says she wrote the book to express the "power" of travel, but not all journeys take place overseas. A significant portion of Christopher's tale sees him roaming
about an anonymous but suspiciously familiar "campus library." ("What a dump!" he
writes. "Can't even walk down the aisles
without bumping your head on the hurruning,
flickering fluorescent fights hanging from the
low, low ceilings.")
Hodgson laughs when I ask if she had UBC's

A memo from Dave to Dan
To: Dan Miller, Provincial Minister of Skills, Training and
From: David W. Strangeway, University of British Columbia
re: Post Secondary Education
Dear Dan,
I was happy to hear that you will be attending this Friday's
conference on post-secondary education here at UBC. I,
too, will be among the conference delegates, and look
forward to hearing your thoughts on a subject many of my
colleagues tell me is at a critical juncture, namely the future
of post-secondary education in the province, and indeed,
the country as a whole.
Fortunately, we here at UBC will be spared the effects of
any cuts in the short term, thanks to our implementation of our
equitable "burden sharing" agreement Our current tuition
policy painlessly passes the scheduled cutbacks directly i >nto
students in the form of tuition fee augmentation—a policy we
administrators view with considerable pride.
But as President of BC's oldest and most distinguished post-
secondary institution, I must express my concern over the long
term impact of continued funding cuts to the university.
As the minister reponsible for post-secondary education,
you are charged with a difficult task. Protocol precludes me
from declaring any official political endorsement, but I feel
compelled to wish you the best of success in your upcoming
bid for the province's highest political office. Your success
is doubly impressive given your lack of a university
education. (Did I mention I used to work for NASA?)
We have endeavored to find creative solutions to the current
fiscal crisis. Some of our initiatives have met widi tremendous
success; others have proved less efficacious. (hir University
Boulevard clearcut program, while a useful model for some of
our keener Forestry students, ended prematurely and was less
profitable than it might have been. Mr Tube Strak has proven
to be a cooperative corporate partner, but returns have been
less brisk than many of us anticipated. (I personally can't get
.•nought of those tasty weiners!)
As you know, our agreement with the generous folks at
Coca Cola has met with a degree of "friction" from some of
the more intransigent members of our university community
(i.e., students), but nonetheless, we anticipate a healthy
relationship with our multinational friends in the future.
Disney has already claimed the Mountie uniform; perhaps
we can interest them in a Campus Cowboys franchise.
While many have expressed concern over the possible fiscal
impact of the somewhat unfavourable publicity generated by
the situation in our political science department, the
complication may prove fortuitous after all. Several major
television networks have expressed interest in purchasing our
story for docudrama purposes, and there is even talk of a mini-
series. (I understand Marlon Brando has been tentatively cast
to play my own portly self.)
Advertising in the Calendar has been a huge success,
and the Registrar's office informs me that we will soon be
moving to a glossy perfume-scented page format in time
for the 1997-98 Winter term.
Despite our best efforts, however, we fear our dwindling
budget simply will not be adequate to cover basic university
expenses. Green fees at the university golf course are
scheduled to skyrocket by as much as 80%.
Clearly, this is unacceptable, and I am confident you
will take steps to remedy the situation.
—David Strangeway
P.S. I've enclosed a sampling of moon rocks as a token
of my esteem. Enjoy.

Oh my God
they're moral
The tack (tacky?) boards
around campus are always overflowing with notices for meetings
of various competing religious
groups, offering everything from
fellowship to salvation, from
cookies to good times. This is, of
course, fine for the declining
majority of people who still find
some comfort in religion. But
what about the others who don't?
Your readers may be interested
to learn that (according to Statistics Canada, 1992) 30.7% ofthe
population of B.C. is not affiliated with any religious organization. Many of these people would
consider themselves to be agnostics, atheists, humanists, rationalists, skeptics, pragmatists,
among other designations. For
the benefit of the growing proportion of such people on campus, there is a proposal to
estabish a HUMANIST CLUB
at UBC.
For those unfamiliar with humanism, suffice it to say that it is
a rational life-stance which asserts that human problems have
to be solved by human beings;
that scientific methods are preferable to divine revelations; that
sound moral conduct need not
have a religious component; and
that this present life is all we shall
ever have, so we must try to
make the best of it for all.
For faculty, staff, and students
who wish to get involved in the
inaugral meeting is scheduled for
Tuesday, November 28 at
5:00p.m. in the Boardroom at
International House at 1783 West
Mall. Taking one cue from the
religious clubs, coffee and cookies will be available, as well as
information and literature on
humanism. Funding will be
sought from the AMS.

United Way
raises more
than eyebrows
This year's UBC Student
United Way fundraising campaign has begun and is off to a
great start! The United Way is a
blanket charity that raises money
and redistribures it to the hundreds of charities that are affiliated with it. The funds raised,
whenever possible, are distributed to charities within the com
munity they were raised. When
donating to the United Way one
can make a general donation or
specify what charity s/he wants
the money to go to. The United
Way is an extremely efficient
organization. Its administrative
expenses are kept to a bare minimum which allows the organization to give 96% of the funds
raised directly to charities.
Each year the UBC students
have a campaign to raise money
for the United Way. This year the
student committee, headed by
Monica Mathur, is hoping to
raise $15,000.
To do this the committee has
set up a competition between the
constituencies. Each constituency has been given a target to
reach based on the umber of students registered i the faculty.
The competitio will run until
February 16,1996 at which point
a prize will be awarded to the
constituency that has met or most
exceeded its goal. There will be
an earlybird prize annouced on
November 30 to the constituency
that has raised the highest proportion of its total goal.
So far the fundraising is going
well with many faculties running
events. Science has had 50/50
draws to raise money. The
Health Sciences Association had
a twister competition and the
AUS is having a BZZR garden
on Friday Nov. 17 and donating
all the profits to the United Way.
Other fundraising events that
have taken place include the
"Hanging On" poster sale where
advertising posters donated by
companies were sold for $ 1 each,
a party at the roxy and the
"Heavy Metal Mile" which gave
people who donated their spare
change a chance to win prizes.
The UBC Sudent United Way
Committee would like to thank
all the constituencies that have
begun their fundraising and all
the students who have been supporting the campaign by making
donations. The committee would
also like to encourage all students
to participate in the activities put
on by their constituency. Also, if
you are interested in helping out
on the United Way Committee,
please contact Monica Mathur at
the University Commission office 822-8725.

close in the early going. The Birds
soon hit their stride, however,
and walked away with a 15-7

"A UVic player was underneath the net

said Guichon, who was able to

Kats top Rugbirds in close match
by Rod Holloway
The Rugby Birds finished their
first half of league play with a
solid performance in a 14-10 loss
to the perennial first division
powerhouse Vancouver Kats.
The game began under a bleak
autumn sky at Balaclava Park, and
play reflected the dour conditions
as both forward packs settled down
to a hard day in the trenches.
The Kats opened the scoring
at the 20 minute mark when Phil
Burnett, on loan from New
Zealand's Auckland Grammar
Old Boys, crossed the Birds' line.
Neither side could produce
another try in the first half, but
Mark Matthews added a penalty
for Kats. The Birds pressed hard
and nearly scored at the break,
but ended the half down 8-0.
The teams took turns asserting
territorial dominance without
scoring early in the second half,
but pressure from the Birds
eventually forced a Kats penalty
and T-Bird fly half Ian Stewart
split the posts for UBC's first
three points.
Scrum half Rich Stone
intercepted a pass shortly after
and sped 50 metres for a try.
Stewart converted to put the
Birds up 10-8.
The lead was short lived,
however, as UBC allowed the
Kats to mount an attack from the
ensuing kick-off and eventually
conceded a penalty. Matthews'
kick put the Kats back on top 11-10.
With three minutes remaining,
the Birds prepared to receive the
kick-off and mount their own
attack, but failed to control the
reception. The Kats came back
and the desperate Birds conceded
everything; we're a bigger team
overall, more skilled, and have
better players," she said, singling
out teammate Jenna Lunam's 14-
point serving streak.
Reimer agreed, saying that
Lunam has been pretty steady all
face their toughest competition
from Alberta (who split a pair of
games with the Birds last week)
and Manitoba, who will square
off against the Birds next week.
Next week's series on the road
will be their last before the

Men's Volleybirds vanquish Victoria Vikes
by Scott Hayward
UBC's men's volleyball team
beat up on the Victoria Vikes
twice last week to even their season record at 3-3.
UBC lost the first game of the
series 15-12, but stormed back to
win three in a row and take the
match 3-1 in Victoria last Thursday.
Back at home in War Memorial Gym Saturday night, UVic
again came close to stealing the
first game but UBC hung on for
a 16-14 win and then dispensed
the disheartened Vikes by scores
of 15-6 and 15-4.
Coach Dale Ohman is pleased
with his team's 3-3 record despite
the loss of star player Michael
Kurz. "I would have been happy
to be 2-4 considering that we
were playing two of the top three
teams in the country at home to
start the league," he said.
Saturday's first game was a
close one, with the Vikes' spike
serving keeping UBC off guard,
while the Birds dominated the
net. The score stayed close until
Victoria scored five unanswered
points to force match point at 14-
11. UBC hung on and came back
to tie the game at 14.
With the Birds leading 15-14,
Graeme Middlekamp served up
an ace on the back line to win the
game. UVic players thought the
close ball was going out.
"I was still disappointed that
they came into our own gym and
stayed even with us all through
the first game, especially after we
beat them up fairly badly on
Thursday," Ohman said.
"I was sick the
whole night. I
should get sick
more often."
—game MVP
Dale Ambrose
"We were very lucky to escape
with a win in the first game, but
on the other hand it's a good win
for the guys-they were down 14-
11, and you don't win many
games when you're down 14-11."
UBC gained confidence after
taking the first game. "I think we
toughened up on our passing and
passing a little bit," said rookie
Shaun Nevitt. "Dale Ambrose
had a great game in the middle.
It was really nice to see our
middles on track again."
Ambrose, who fought off a
case of stomach flu to lead the
Birds with 11 kills on the night
("I should get sick more often,"
he later joked), took tournament
MVP honours.

Ambrose said. "I think because
of that our setter, Jamie McKay,
could set all his options. That kept
Victoria guessing."
UBC took an early lead in the
second game, scoring six consecutive points to take a 13-4 lead
and cruising to a 15-6 victory. The
Birds dominated game three,
building a 12-1 lead on mistakes
by an unnerved UVic team, and
won a 15-4 final.
Ohman was pleased with the
play of Nevitt, who is fighting
with fellow rookie Guy Davis for
a spot on the regular roster.
"Davis played his first full match
without having to be substituted
in or out, and he just played
great," he said.
"I told both the boys that I
would reverse it tonight, that this
was Shaun's match tonight and
that Guy set the standard Thursday. He made a few mistakes but
he didn't make runs of mistakes,
so it was nice to see."
The team is off until Christmas,
and Ohman plans to use the time
to develop individual skills.
The Birds are back in action at
the Mizuno Excalibur tournament at York University in early
January, after which they will
resume league play against the
fourth ranked Winnipeg.
