Stein River Vafey face
the axe-400
By RICK KLEIN
THE SNOW UNDERFOOT IS
soft and slushy in the July sun.
Looking down from the height of
the Blowdown Pass, the vast panorama of the Stein River valley comes
sharply into focus: the glaciated
peaks of the coast mountains, the
deep forested valleys of the riverand
its tributaries and the Fraser beyond.
Ihe Stein River valley located
between Lytton and I'emberton the
heart ol the coast range, is the scene
of another classic B.C. land use battle. On one side is British Columbia
Forest Products (B.C. F. P.). a major
multinational forest firm with oper-
wild
planted rows ot truit trees, the towering poplars that line the driveway
and the old mansion complete with
whitewashed verandas, covered porches and stained-glass windows.
Becky Mundall is an able and
outgoing farm woman with friendlv
hazel eyes. She says logging in the
Stein will certainly damage the character of the westsidc of the Fraser.
"People like this side of the river,
it is quiet and isolated. This will all
change with 15 logging trucks a day
moving through here." she says.
"If it were just another valley I
would not mind, but it is the last

ations in nearby Boston Bar. For
B.C.F.P.. the Stein represents wood
fibre destined for their Boston Bar
mill.
On the other side is a coalition of
local and provincial conservation
groups who contend that the Stein is
best left untouched in its present
state and should ultimately be protected through provincial park status
From the \antage point of Blow-
down Pass, it is easy to grasp what is
at stake in the Stein. The Stein River
watershed is immense, over 400
square miles in all. The thick forests
that blanket :he valley sides represent a crucial component of the wood
supply earmarked for B.C.F.P.'s
Boston Bar mill. The logging plans
call for 110000 cubic meters of
wood to be hauled out of the Stein
per year, roughly 15 truck loads
every working day for the next 25
years.
To logging opponents, the Stein is
unique; a large, intact wilderness
watershed in an area where all other
large watersheds have been heavily
disrupted.
From its headwaters only 100 kilometres from Vancouver, the river
flows through an ever changing landscape, from wet rainforests of the
coast mountains to the hot, dry
canyon lands of the interior plateau.
The Stein covers an area of greater
ecological density than any existing
park in southern British Columbia.
Moreover, the Stein has significant
heritage values. Used extensively by
the local native peoples the lower
canyon alone contains 10 Indian pic-
tograph sites.
BECKY AND MERRIT MIN-
dall own the Earlscourt farm, located on the beachlands above the
Fraser near its confluence with the
Stein at I.ytton. B.C.F.P. wants to
build the main Stein logging road
through a section of the Earlscourt
farm, a plan the Mundalls say they
intend to fight.
At the turn of the century the
Earlscourt farm was one of the model
farms in Canada, exporting fruit as
far away as Europe. Today, the
Earlscourt is a rambling, time-worn
place. Reminders of its past grandeur lie everywhere, in the carefullv
low-lying valley in the area and it's in
our own backyard." She adds, "it's a
very nice feeling to know it's up
there, clean flowing water and beautiful forests.
"The logging people say they will
not disturb the river, but I know different because I've seen what they've
done in other areas."
The town ot Lytton is divided on
the Stein issue, says Mundall "Some
people feel strongly that it should
not be logged, some people just
don't care, and others say we've got
to get the jobs. But," she adds, "not
many of those jobs would go to people in Lytton, they will go down the
valley to Boston Bar."
FROM   THE  EARLSCOURT
farm and the westside of the Fraser,
a tiny two-car reactionferry shuttles
cars across the Fraser River to Lytton. The ferry is an ingenious device
fastened to cables suspended on
shore, relying on the current of the
Fraser to push it across the river. It is
a manual operation, one man plunges a large rudder into the current
while another works the winch that
puts tension on the overhead cables.
The bright red, blueand yellowemb-
lem of the B.C. Ferry Corporation is
nailed to the side of the plywood
shack that serves as the shelter a-
board the tiny craft.

as the ferry is finally brought up to
the dock.
Complicating the Stein dispute
are the area's native politics. Both
the Thompson Indians and the Lil-
loet Indians to the north historically
made use of the Stein, and native
land claims have been placed upon
the valley. The Lilloet Tribal Council has come out strongly against
logging. They are hosting a wilderness gathering in the Stein on the
Labor Day weekend to highlight this
opposition. The Thompson Indians
have adopted a more guarded, wait
and see approach.
MICHAEL   M'GONIGLE   IS
the Director of the Institute For
New Economics in Vancouver. A
former resident of Lytton, M'Goni-
gle has been actively involved in the
Stein controversy. He calls the move
to transfer stumpage revenues to the
Stein a direct government subsidy to
an uneconomic logging operation.
"You and I, the taxpayer of B.C.
will end up paying twice; public
funds will be spent to booster an
uneconomic logging scheme, and a
part of our wilderness heritage will
be lost forever," he says.
M'Gonigle says an economic analysis recently released by the 'Save
the Stein Coalition' showed that at
existing lumber price levels,
B.C.F.P.'s own cost figures indicate
that logging the Stein will actually
"You and I, the taxpayers of B.C., will end up paying twice:
public funds will be spent to booster an uneconomic logging
scheme, and a part of our wilderness will be lost forever."
"1 don't believe they should be
allowed to log the Stein Valley, but I
don't really see how we can prevent
it," says Jackson. His sentiments are
typical of many who oppose development of the Stein, but have become resigned to the prospect of
logging.
Today, the landing is difficult.
High  water threatens to pull the
IT  IS  UPON  QUESTIONS OF
jobs, revenues and economics that
much of the heated debate on the
Stein revolves.
Both logging company and government officials argue that the timber in the Stein is necessary to pre-
servejobs in the local forest industry.
The Stein represents nine per cent of
the total wood supply in the Lilloet
timber supply area.
There is plenty of wood in the valley. The problem for B.C.F.P. is
how to get at it. An expanded ferry
crossing must be built at Lytton and
some 30 kilometres of expensive
road must be pushed through the
lower Stein Canyon just to reach
marketable timber.
In B.C. such access roadbuilding
costs are paid for by the government
through credits against stumpage
revenues owed to the Crown. In the
Stein, however, the stumpage revenues the government will receive
through logging activity will be insufficient to cover the basic costs of
road-building and reforestation.
In a precedent setting move.
B.C.F.P. has applied to the Forests
ministry to have stumpage funds
generated by the company elsewhere
in the province transferred to the
Stein to help pay for road-building
expenses. This means that money
that would otherwise go to the general provincial revenues will be used
to open up the Stein.
result in company losses.
"The problem is simple," he says.
"The wood is expensive to get at and
the markets for it are terrible and
likely to get worse. Without a large
public subsidy the area would never
be touched."
M'Gonigle stresses that the removal of the Stein Valley from timber
production does not mean the abandonment of the local forest industry.
"The solution to the problem of
increasing timber scarcity is not high
cost development of an inaccessible
wilderness valley. The public funds
that are being set aside to aid the
proposed logging operation could
be used instead to help the local
forest industry adapt to a future of
resource efficiency and product specialization," he says.
M'Gonigle calls preservation of
the Stein a unique opportunity to
help diversify the local economy.
"Tourismand recreationare B.C.'s
fastest growing industries and the
Stein Valley is ideally placed close to
existing transporati in routes and
the population centres of the Lower
Mainland."
"People in this province: must realize that preservation of our last wilderness areas makes increasingly
good economic sense. Our forest
industry is in trouble... with or without the Stein. If it's going to survive
it must produce better products than

there is no demand just isn't good
business anymore. And it certainly
isn't very good for tourism," he says.
Boston Bar is a short half-hour
drive down the Trans-Canada from
Lytton. The town is wedged between
the highway and the railroad, high
on a bluff overlooking the Fraser.

with significant losses," he argues.
Taylor adds that a company like
B.C.F.P. must look ahead over an
extended time period when calculating the potential cost and benefits of
an operation in the Stein. "There's
about 25 years of logging in that valley. You've got to be optimistic —
else you might as well be shutting
this mill down. We are not going
into the Stein to lose money," he
adds.
"Basically, we need the wood. If the stein is
removed from our timber quota, we will be
forced to overcut in our other licensed
areas.

Taylor says that the Boston Bar
mill is a high volume lumber producer. "It is designed for a certain
amount of wood and in order to
keep our fixed costs down, we must
keep our throughput high." He says
that B.C.F.P. has little choice but to
log the Stein. "Basically, we need the
wood. If the Stein is removed from
our timber quota, we will be forced
to overcut in our other licence areas
and in the future there will be even
more pressure to get into the Stein."
Taylor concedes that on paper the
Boston Bar Mill isn't making money,
but adds that the mill provides pulp
chips for B.C.F.P.'s Pulp and Paper
Division. Despite his optimism, the
future of B.C.F.P.'s Boston Bar Mill
is far from certain. The mill shut
down for almost a year between
June 1982 and July 1983 when lumber markets slumped badly. Its competitive position as a high-volume,
low value producer of commodity
lumber is dependent upon access to
cheap timber supplies.
The timber in the Stein Valley will
not be cheap. Lumber markets must
improve significatly if high cost timber like that in the Stein is to be
logged at a profit.
Not every one shares Brian Taylor's optimism. In fact B.C.F.P. vice
president Gerry Burch was far from
enthusiastic in a recent interview in
the Province newspaper. Said Burch,
"In effect the government is telling
us what to do... to log the area (The
Stein) or have our quota cut back.
They don't care if we lose money or
not. they're telling us to get on with
it."
Mr. Burch's statement may indeed
provide an explanation of events
surrounding the Stein - a political
decision by forests Minister Tom
Waterland to keep the wood flowing
to B.C.F.P.'s Boston Bar mill, the
largest forest employer in what is
Waterland's personal riding.

Firings harm academic freedom
By STEPHEN WISENTHAL
Faculty members are still reacting
to the imposition of redundancy
provisions by the Board of Governors which have resulted in 12 tenured professors being fired but specific action will follow Thursday's
Faculty Association meeting.
The structure of the procedures
the Board approved conflicts with
tenure and academic freedom, said
Faculty Association past president
Elmer Ogryzlo.
The redundancy policy approved
July 4 by the Board allows the
administration to fire tenured professors if their department or program has been closed down by Senate.
Ogryzlo said he recognized redundancies should be possible but the
procedure should offer protection
from arbitrary decisions.
"We've already agreed that people
can be fired; it's just that the unilateral decision (by the Board) has
failed to prevent the possibility of
abuse," he said.
Ogryzlo said the board policy
meant it was possible for cuts to be
so specific they targetted one or two
members of faculty.
"Any procedure that gives too
much power to administrators to
pick and choose who is fired is
inadequate," he said.
He also said the firings were illegal
because there have been no negotiations between faculty and the administration on redundancies without a
declared financial emergency.
Charles Bourne, a law professor
and advisor to the administration
president, said the rules for laying
off faculty simply require the administration to negotiate with the faculty
association. "It does not say you
can't do anything until you have
reached agreement," he said.
He disagrees with Ogryzlo's comment that there have been no negotiations on redundancy without a declared financial emergency.
"The faculty association assertion
that there were no negotiations on
this matter were just inaccurate," he
said, adding the proposal requiring
the board to declare a financial
emergency before the emergency becomes official was never ratified by
faculty.
Jean Voris, a dental hygiene faculty
member who will be dismissed as of
June 1986, said she first heard formally on June 25 that she would lose
her job.
"I'm appalled at the process." she
said. "I think it is very insensitive to
humans."
She said the final decision, made
in a very short period, should have
had more consideration.
Economics professor Gideon Ros-
enbluth said he thought senate had
been tricked by the administration
into approving the department closures without any information on
the resulting layoffs. "I think some
senators now agree with that," he
said.
Rosenbluth said the faculty had
tried to negotiate on other provisions but "the negotiators for the
other side took thoroughly unreasonable positions."
He added faculty recognized the
need for a procedure to deal with
redundancies but objected to the
way the administration imposed the
layoffs.
"I think it's an attack on tenure
and the faculty association and the
Canadian Association of University
Teachers are right to fight it," he
said.
Ogryzlo expressed concern that
the admnistration hasn't revealed
the exact procedures for the redundancies. "We don't really know that
justice was done," he said.
He added there would almost certainly be legal action over the provisions. "For the association it's a
mechanical thing - it's a breach of
contract," he said.

"NO RAIN YET," says ancient water diviner, who searches for something wet to cool himself down. For
now he attempts to get water by opening hidden tap in bus stop railing. "Just like a fire hydrant," he says
"except there ain't no dogs." After photo was taken, water in fact did come out of the railing. Three hours
later aquatic centre had to close indoor pool due to lack of water.
Pit prices climb higher again
Prices are up in the Pit again.
On May 1 prices on food and beverages in the Pit Pub and the Gallery
Lounge went up "a good chunk",
said Jaimie Collins. Alma ater Society finance director.
The price of a glass of local draft
beer went up in May from 95 cents to
SI. 15 in the Pit. The beer price at
Simon Fraser University's bar is 90
cents.
There is a large range of prices for
a glass of draft among Vancouver's
restaurants and bars due to differing
cover charges and the size of a
'glass', but S2.70 is the average price
of a locally bottled beet. It now costs
$2.20 for local beer in the Pit and
$2.45 in the snazzier Gallery Lounge.
The same bottle of beer goes for
$1.80 at Simon Fraser.
Increases in beer prices weren't
the only changes to the Pit and its
affiliates in the Student Union Building. The price of soft drinks went
up by a dime to 75 cents, and as the
Pit also runs the pop machines in
SUB, they too charge 75 cents.
Entertainment has changed from
winter session with the introduction
of cover charges on Wednesday.
Friday, and Saturday night. One
dollar is the fee for students and two
dollars is the cost for non-students.
But Collins says the Saturday cover
charge for students may be dropped
as an experiment. The Gallery-
Lounge has also dropped its entertainment for the summer.
Collins, who approved the increases, attributed the price hike to a
variety of causes. "We had to adjust
to a federal tax increase and a brewery price increase around May," he
said.
He said the student pub's prices
were approaching those of commercial bars in the city because, "we pay
our staff more and we have more
students on staff."
"You don't have students on the
Board of Governors of the Fraser
Arms. The Pit isn't a regular student
pub. We want it to be professional.
We don't want to go back to the days
when the Pit was closed down," he
said.
AMS hiring committee
reviews executive jobs
$3500.
That is about how much each of the five student council executives have
made so far in their summer jobs which pay $1750 per month, and some
council members think they are being paid too much.
"There are more people hired on than jobs needed to be done," said
Science Undergraduate Society president Don Mustard Friday.
Mustard said the job performances should have been reviewed earlier in
the beginning of July.
"What has to be done is a change in policy for hiring executives over the
summer," he said.
Martin Cocking, Students Administrative Council secretary, said he
thought a "large part" of the executive didn't really deserve their summer
wages.
"1 don't feel that 1 could justify earning that amount of money," he said. "It
wouldn't be so bad if all the executives at least looked like they were doing
some work."
AMS vice-president Jonathan Mercer said the job reviews which will be
done by AMS hiring committee tonight will merely "rubber stamp" the
rehiring of the executives for the rest of the summer.
Mercer said he is basically on schedule with his summer job. He described
his daily routine, which includes attending a one hour class Monday to
Friday. He said he makes phone calls to arrange meetings with students
among other tasks which would not produce many tangible results until
September.
AMS director of administration Simon Seshrodi said he does not have
any set routine but has been busy with several jobs, including tracking down
the producers of the "J-zone" graffiti which recently appeared all over the
SUB.
The other three council members were not reached in time for comments.
Hiring committee member Nicci Ricci said the committee will meet at 5:00
today to review the executive summer job performances so far. It will make
its recommendations for re-hiring at the regular council meeting at 6:30 in
the council chambers, she said.
UBC Bookstore sees red
By VICTOR WONG
The UBC Bookstore ran in the red
last year, and its director says he
doesn't expect to see a profit for the
next 15 years.
But that doesn't mean business
has been doing badly, John Hedge-
cock said Friday. "We expect business to grow at a kind of a curve," he
said. "Despite the drop in enrolment,
we've been doing better business
than last year."
The construction of the new bookstore was completed in 1983 but the
building is still not paid off. Because
the store is supposed to be selt-
financing. it is not allowed grants or
other types of funding from the
administration, Hedgecock said.
He added even if the building were
paid off in full, the bookstore's charter only allows it to break even.
'Universities run their own bookstores because it is unprofitable," he
said. "If it werea profitable business,
there'd be a private company operating here "
The store's non-academic items
have been selling briskly. The biggest seller in this category is sports
gear — T-shirts, sweatshirts, and
jackets emblazoned with various
UBC logos, Hedgecock said.
Looking at students' book-buying
habits over the past year, Hedgecock
said aside from required texts, students' tastes were focused on business-oriented titles such as "The One-
Minute Manager" and "In Search of
Excellence." The hottest-selling book
in this genre has been the autobiography of Chrysler magnate Lee
Iacocca.
"lacocca's book is a success because people wanted to learn more
about this guy," Hedgecock said.
"This is the man who turned Chrysler
around and they want to know his
secret."
Hedgecock said the bookstore has
had surprising success in selling
children's books. "Partly I think it's
because there's a lot of students
■ in the education faculty interested in
them, since they want to teach the
kids who read these books, he said.
"Since we've had opening hours
on Saturdays (a practice begun this
spring), we've had families from off-
campus shopping here."
Ontario student considers suing university
LONDON (CUP) - A University of
Western Ontario student exposed to
radioactive material is considering a
lawsuit against the university for
negligence.
Sandie Killeen, a fourth year science student, was exposed to Chromium 51 on June 6 while working on
an experiment to monitor cell growth
after purification. Dr. John Trevi-
thick, the professor responsible for
the research, was not authorized to
work with the radioactive isotope.
Killeen has hired lawyer Michael
Learners to investigate the possibility of filing suit against the university.
"My recommendation is that the
case be pursued," said Learners,
although he added he has not had a
chance to discuss Killeen's medical
report.
Learners refused to divulge the
results of a blood chromosome test
for internal contamination or reveal
the extent of Killeen's exposure to
Chromium 51.
"I know the answer but I am not in
a position to answer it directly, but I
will say that our information is different from (Trevithick's)," Learners
said.
According to the university and
the Atomic Energy Control Board
of Canada, Killeen's exposure was
not large and that the isotope in
question is not dangerous. The student newspaper at UWO was told
Chromium 51 has a half life of about
27 days, meaning most of the radia
tion is gone in less than a year. But a
radiation expert at the Institute for
Public Health in Toronto disagreed.
"Besides being a radiological hazard, it is also a chemical hazard. It
emits gamma rays, x-rays, and negative electrons. There is no such thing
as safe exposure," said Dr. Rosalie
Bertell, an internationally known
researcher for her work on the health
effects of radiation.
Bertell warned that Chromium 51
has a biological as well as radioactive half life.
Since the accident, the university
has revoked Trevithick's permit to
work with radioactive materials and
has suspended his research project.
Trevithick did not have a permit to
use the isotope Chromium 51.

Campus mail not coming on time
UBC has had a problem with late mail on campus this past month.
But don't blame Canada Post for it.
Mail is distributed on campus by the campus mailroom, a division
of the administration services department. A sudden swell of incom-
ingand interdepartmental mail, combined with the departure of three
mailroom staff on vacation, resulted in a two-week backlog in mail
distribution in the beginning of July.
Karen Smith, director of intramural sports, said Thursday a letter
dated June 28 took 12 days to reach her office. It was mailed from
downtown Vancouver. "It's ridiculous," she said. "If you were a
normal business you couldn't exist like that."
A spokesperson for the graduate studies faculty said their office has
also had a problem with late mail. "It's a bit of a hassle, but there's
been nothing really damaging," she said. The graduate studies office
received a lot of mail requiring a reply before a specific deadline, she
explained.
Barry Foord, director of administrative services, said the backlog
problems have mostly been solved. "Campus mail should be coming in
oa time now,'* he said. Page 4

Well, our good old Board of Governors has made itself some more friends.
And they got a bit of help from a slightly uncollegial administration.
The neverending chaos surrounding UBC's reaction to a plummetting
budget has finally made every Socreds dream come true.
Tenured professors have already been fired.
And it's pretty messy.
This university has some good reasons not to acquire the image of a place
where tenure is being eroded.
Some day UBC will want to attract more faculty members and a place
with a perceived bad record on tenure won't be the first choice of the best
people.
That is just one of the reasons why it is vitally important to deal properly
with the sensitive issue of dismissing tenured faculty.
But not this interim administration.
They have gotten faculty members up in arms over an imposed redundancy agreement which appears to leave some room for meddling with
academic freedom and tenure.
This  comes  after  years  of   negotiation   over  firing   protocol.
After freezing their salaries for three years, one would have to question
how much more fuss UBC's top and not-so-top faculty will put up with.
Even if they are leaving soon, members of UBC's interim administration
shouldn't bulldoze things through and leave an impossible mess for David
Strangeway, our new president, to take over on November 1
The administration and Board should try to patch up strained relations
with faculty by returning to the negotiating table and hammering out an
agreement which can be applied to the current situation and used to keep
people as happy as possible if matters ever become as bad again for the
university.
People's bank
The Teachers' credit union has one again responded to UBC students.
By introducing its new "Student Budgeter" account for students it is
proving its committment to cater to students.
The TCU is the only financial institution on campus which is willing to
handle student loans.
For banks, handling students is minimally profitable, and so the Bank of
Montreal and the Bank of Commerce have left UBC under the guise of
providing students with more efficient service downtown.
How can a bank that is downtown help UBC students who spend most of
their lives during the school year on the West side of Vancouver?
Speaking of time, have you ever wondered why, at noon, when a lot of
UBC students are forced, because of their schedules, to do their banking,
there are rarely more than five or six tellers available? Even when the
line-ups are regularly longer than the line-ups for Back to the Future?
Ever notice how most of the tellers inside the office area always seem
oblivious to the growing look of frustration and infuriation of students who
have spent their entire lunch hours in line and still not made it to the neon
attention-hogging sign?
At the TCU all the tellers are prepared to work at the front and more tellers
are on call for when the line-ups, usually of a maximum of five people, get
longer.
The bank machines are even nicer at the TCU. They let you take out a
minimum of $10 instead of the $20 minimum at the Bank of Montreal
Maybe it's obvious which financial instiution is our favourite, but when a
bank is trying hard to please us, why fight it?
U.S. warships: are they visiting or invading?
The Vancouver Sea Festival
which begins next week is being
turned more and more into a war
festival.
This year the festival organizers
are hosts for four U.S. warships and
their crews. Last year the U.S. warships sent ashore a contingent of sailors who, armed with rifles, marched
in the festival parade with Mayor
Harcourt at the head.
The U.S. warships should not be
here. Neither U.S. nor Soviet war-

ships should be permitted in Canadian waters. Both are aggressive
superpowers intent on domination
of the people of the world.
The U.S. warships are being
brought to Vancouver to popularize
the U.S. Navy and the NATO war
preparations, to persuade the people
that the U.S. Navy is a force for
"peace", and that we should accept
their presence in our harbour.
The U.S. imperialists are dictating
that Canada become even more
tightly hitched to the U.S. war chariot, that Canada abandon any pretensions to sovereignty. They are
demanding the right to test missiles
and other weapons here. They are
demanding the right to train troops
here. They are demanding that the
Canadian soil become an anchor in
the "Star Wars" missile command
plan.
The U.S. uses the torpedo testing
range north of Nanaimo as its own,
and the aggressive and nuclear
armed Trident submarines cross
into Canadian waters in order to
leave their Puget Sound base and
sail into the Pacific.
The demands of the U.S. imperialists are made everywhere, including
this university, where research for
the Pentagon and the U.S. space
programme is put forward by the
administration as an acceptable
"solution" to the crisis in education
funding.
War preparations and armaments
manufacture bring high profits, and
the rich of Canada are concerned
solely with maximizing that profit.
In their own selfish intersts, in
their desire for maximum profits,
the rich are selling out the Canadian
people and submitting to the U.S.
imperialist dictate.
The submission to the U.S. demands is presented as though it will
cloak us with protection! Far from
"protecting" us, the U.S. imperialists are putting Canada at risk. The
demand that we arm to the teeth,
that we join the "Star Wars" programme, that we open our bases and
ports to the U.S. fleets and armies of
occupation is a demand that we prepare for a show-down war alongside
the U.S. against Soviet social-imperialism, and is not acceptable.
The people of the world cannot
rely on either superpower for protection. The Canadian people can
achieve independence and can defend our sovereignty only by getting
Canada out of NATO, and ending
the U.S. imperialist dictate over
Canada and opposing Soviet social-
imperialism as well.
The U.S. warships here for the
Sea Festival are an affront to the
people of Vancouver. All U.S. warships are capable of bearing nuclear
arms. The warships are part of the
aggressive U.S. fleet, going to or
returning from aggressive maneuvers.
The aggressors against the people
of El Salvador, Nicaragua, Grenada,  the  Middle  East etc.  should
have no respite in Vancouver.
The People's Front has called for
a demonstration on July 20, 10 a.m.
at Denman and Beach, the site of the
Sea Festival Parade, and has called
on all patriotic and peace-loving
people of Vancouver to unite in
action and demonstrate against the
U.S. warships. I urge the people at
UBC to vigorously participate in
this important demonstration.

Chicago exhibits joy and pain of birth
By DEBBIE LO
Pain.
pm v     Mention   the   word  and   people
wouldn't hesitate to ask "Where does
_^m   it hurt?"
i Associate the word with birth and
somehow the question changes to
"Isn't is a beautiful experience?"
The Birth Project by Judy Chi-
__ _ ^ cago presents the subject of women
and birth in rigorous detail using
—- embroidery, quilting and weaving,
among other methods of handiwork
traditionally viewed as women's hobbies, to portray her message that
birth is both a "terrible and wonder-
uw. „ ful" experience.
The exhibit  contains  images  of
r women in all stages of the birth process - from the time a woman is carrying the child in her womb until the
actual moment of delivery.
This exibition leaves out nothing.
/« It does not limit its view to sweaty-
facial expressions. It lifts the hospital sheet and shows women in their
entirety - skin, breasts, vagina, everything to provoke a response from
its audience. A particularly explicit
piece. Birth Tear shows a woman
-^- poised for birth, grimacing with pain
that  runs  like  an  electric  current
— - through her body. It is a powerful
piece that emanates the same stress
and pain that our ancestors probably experienced.
.^ , The Birth Tear covers the subject
in a way that some people would
jm find vulgar or distasteful, but Chicago believes the reason why people
don't react positively to vaginal imagery is that it is usually only seen in
pornography where "women are not
affirmed but made into objects."
Chicago believes that the subject of
ra women giving birth has been ignored
for too long by artists.
Ann Gibson, a woman who resides
in Vancouver and  worked  on the
project with Chicago, says that the
Koman in Birth Tear shows an expe-
ence that she herself felt when giv-
^    ing birth.
Y
"A big connection occurs before
the last big push. I've felt it," she
said. "A woman is 100% focused
when giving birth and the women in
the piece is experiencing a connection that she shares with all of her
ancestors - giving birth."
Gibson, a painter, stitched a piece
called "Thou Art The Mother
Womb" which contains a black landscape with two volcanoes spouting
fire and in between the volcanoes a
mass of bodies reaching out into the
darkness. The shades of orange in
Gibson's piece beautifully portray
Chicago's image image based on a
Greek myth where women are nourishes.
Gibson said Chicago chose stit-
chery to portray her images for two
reasons. One was that it made the
exhibit portable and the other was
that needlework, like the women
who created it, would be treated
with respect for the great amount of
talent it took.
Gibson became interested in the
project after seeing Chicago's first
work, The Dinner Party which received attention for its controversial
message that the accomplishments
of women have been virtua^y ignored
in art.
All of the women who participated in the project were volunteers
for Chicago, who describes the Birth
Project as her own idea. She believes
art is like printmaking, where an
artist works in conjunction with a
printmakerand supervises her image
translations. The project took five
years to complete with the help of
volunteers.
Chicago's art treats the birth process candidly and for that reason it
should be viewed for the bold step it
is taking to bring attention to an
experience unfortunately reserved for
women. Her visions of giving birth,
although not always pretty, are nonetheless real experiences. Chicago's
exhibit gives both the joy and pain
involved in giving birth the attention
and dignity they deserve.

Bizarre Japanese film satirizes education
By DAVID FERMAN
f*~ The Family Game is a funny
bizarre and  infuriating film from
»*■ Japan. It is unique in sight, sound
and most of all character.
The Family Game
directed by Yoshimitsu Morita
at the Royal Centre	
14 The Japanese film tells the story
of one well-to-do family and its
modern problems. It is a comedy/s-
atire told mainly through the eyes of
the younger son, Shigeyuki (Ichirota
, Miyagawa) and what he sees is "too
much."
* There isn't a plot to give away.
The father (Juzo Itami) is obsessed
with his family's honour, specifically
his sons' grades. The older son
(Junichi Tsujita) seems to be doing
well in school but the withdrawn
often teased Shigeyuki is a poor student. Father hires Yashimoto (Yu-
saku Matsuda), a tutor, who teaches
Shigeyuki and help him grow up.
The storyline is straightforward but
the film is not.
The first different thing one notices about The Family Game, aside
from the subtitles, is the comedy. In
the opening credits we are introduced to the family members individually eating.
Above the word Father there is a
close-up of the lower half of Father's
face. Above that, a fried egg yolk
gets punctured and sucked up by
father to funny, but somehow obscene, super-amplified slurping noises.
Super-amplification is just one of
Morita's inventive techniques. It is
also one of the film's strange running
jokes. Most of the comedy arises
from the ridiculous deadpan of
Yashimoto and his bizarre intractable personality.
The Family Game is at the same
time a sharp-toothed satire. The film
attacks many aspects of Japan's
wealthy but soulless upper middle
class. Homes where neighbours are
strangers offer no privacy anyway,
so the father takes the people to his
car when he wants a serious discussion. The alienation of man from
nature, and of course family relations are all attacked.
But, the principal target of the
satire is the madness of the Japanese
education which is seen as a futile
treadmill.
The acting is good especially Saori
Yuki as the beautiful dutiful and sad
Mother, Matsuda as the inscrutable
Yashimoto, and Miyagawa as the
troubled teenager.
From the moment Yoshito compliments Shigeyuki on his acne and
kisses him on the cheek, the tutor
keeps the student and his audience
off balance.
Unfortunately with one scene he
finally pushes us too hard, and the
film topples from the bizarre to the
unbelievable. During a party for
Shigeyuki, the strange tutor begins a
food fight that ends when he attacks
the entire family like some surreal
Bruce Lee take off.
The scene can be described as a
humanist revolt against the polite
Janapese inhumanism; with the tutor
as a dark cleansing angel of destruction. Or it can be viewed as a grotesque unreal mess that ruins the rest
of the movie. I believe the latter was
the case.
The acting is fine but The Family
Game is a director's movie. Morita
uses many different tricks with stunning results. Geometric designs and
different lighting are used to maximum effect. However, the best used
technique was the imaginative camera angles.
When Shigeyuki is studying beside
his often violent tutor we see both
his nervous face and his twitching
fingers below his glass desk. There
are also fascinating close-ups and
overhead shots that made me wish
for a larger screen than the tiny
Royal Centre theatre had.
The Family Game is worth seeing
if you like comedy or films that
make you think. But don't expect
simple humour or straight line thinking. Page 6

Collapse of man amuses,
angers and irritates
Jacob and Mary Mercer,,.happy couple.
By STEPHEN WISENTHAL
Does every Newfie in I'oronto
experience every possible emotion in
two hours'.'
David French's anger, tension and
humour filled play Leaving Home
makes vou wonder.
Leaving Home
by David French
directed by Catherine Caines
at the Frederick Wood Theatre
until July 20
The set consists of the broken,
insulation filled stumps of all the
walls in the ground floor of a worn
but comfortable house. The broken,
collapsing feeling given by the set
carries through to the whole play.
Jacob Mercet (Michael Fera), the
father, has lost *he respect of his
family and he picks fights with them
and insults them at every possible
opportunity.
Everyone expects him to explode
into a rant about the evils of Catholicism of his son Ben at the slightest
provocation, and he does.
His wife,  Marv (Carol  Nesbitt)
and sons Ben. 18. (Lylc Moon) and
Bill. 17, (Stefan Win'field) ha e isolated him, not telling him anything
for fear of setting him off.
The action of the play concerns
the evening before a planned rehearsal of the forced wedding of Bill to
Kathy Jackson (Sarah Rodgersl,
about a month into her pregnancy
Kathy is Catholic, which isn't a
point in her favour as far as Jacob is
concerned.
Complications occur, and the dinner with the Mercers and Kathy in
attendance is both tense and, thanks
to Jacob's absolutely outrageous comments, hilarious.
Everyone gets together when
Kathy's tacky and loud mother, Millie (Lisa Klingspon). shows up with
her boyfriend Harold. Harold (Pat
Blaney) looks and moves much like
a cardboard cutout of Conrad Black
and is, Minnie assures everyone,
very well endowed.
The action leaps from tension to
humour to remorse as Jacob, like a
middle aged working class Jimmy
Porter, tears everyone else apart
while his household falls down
around him.
The themes run from the fate of
the working class families (not particularly good) to relations between
parents and children (always bad),
the life of housewives (depressing)
and love (not very fulfilling).
The play also delves into society's
treatment (15 years ago) of young
women who get pregnant, and the
relationship between a university
bound child. Ben. and his working
father who considers him an insipid
wimp. Nothing seems very happy for
a family which left Newfoundland
for the Big City.
Leaving Home is competently-
acted with everyone being angry,
indignant, upset or remorseful when
called upon. Carol Nesbitt is particularly good as the mother who has to
try to keep the peace in her house
gone mad.
The characters are well enough
developed so that it is possible to
understand their motivations and
feel for them.
So, if you want to see a lot of
people get angry at each other, being
at once depressing, irritating and
amusing, while a well crafted plot
finishes off the collapse of a man,
have a glance at Leaving Home.
I Love My Love is spouse-swapping humour with a twist
By JANET ZLOTNIK
Here it is. Finally a spouse-swapping story that works. The wittv
humour of Fay Weldon brings an
over-used premise back to life in I
Love My Love, now playing at City
Stage.	
I Love My Love
directed by Ray Michal
at the City Stage Theatre
Femina. a catty women's magazine has offered two couples one
thousand pounds each to switch
partners for a week.
London sophisticate. Cat (Marie
Stillin), goes to a Devonshire farm
and stays with a bumbling countryman named Derek (David Clark).
Derek's wife Anne (Angela Gann)
goes to London to live with Cat's
smooth husband Mark (Peter Gia-
schi). Cat and Mark are participating in the life-swap for a bu//: Anne
and Derek need the money to get the
roof fixed.
1 hroughout the play neither married couple is seen together. Mark
and Cat's failed open marriage has
left them starved for love, affection
and a partner that will remain faithful. Derek and Anne have lived more
like brother and sister than husband
and wife.
To pass the monotony of their
lives they play a word game called I
Love My Love. They continue to
play this game with their new partners. "1 love my love with an A
because...1 hate my love with an A
because...." It is more than a game -it
is a means of communication.
The best dialogue of the play takes
place near the beginning between
Anne and Mark. Mark's cosmopolitan wit complements Anne's narrow-
-mindedness. He teases her facetiously and is charmed by her frank
replies.
1   Love   My   Love  is  sensitively
directed bv Ray Michal. The per
formances are strong, particularly
Peter Giaschi as Mark. He imparted
a deep understanding of his character to the audience.
Angela Gann as Anne, could have
put more variety into her performance. She seemed to remain on one
level for the duration of the play.
David Clark as Derek is a believable
character with a talent for comedy.
Marie Stillin's Cat is a multi-faceted
character with the capacity to surprise the audience.
Laurel Bryson, a graduate of the
UBC theatre department, has only
one scene but her portrayal of the
lady from Femina is wonderfully
wicked.
1 Love My Love is British humour
with a twist. It has travelled well and
promises to entertain Vancouver
audiences until it's close in August.
Derek and Anne Cat and Mark play serious games.

TCU introduces special student account
By DEBBIE LO
A credit union has introduced the
first special account for students.
The "Student Budgeter" account
which allows planned withdrawals
during the year, has been introduced
by the Teachers Credit Union.
"We want to help students budget their money," said UBC branch
manager David McLure, announcing the program which will start at
the end of August.
He said the special account assumes a student budgets $6000 during the entire year and allows planned withdrawals for tuition plus a
set monthly amount.
The account will deter students
from withdrawing money by only
allowing one "free" withdrawal per
month, and charging a $5.00 fee for
each additional withdrawal.
McLure said they are offering this
service to students to show their
Eateries hunger for names
They're cool, trendy and nameless, unless you call The Pasta Bar
and The Snack Bar names.
The AMS's two newest food and beverage outlets on the basement
floor of the SUBare already open for business, but probably won't be
named until September.
"It's just called The Pasta Bar right now," says UBC student Joe
Yee, who works at the outlet which serves pasta dishes and salad.
According to Yee. a contest was held recently to find a name for the
outlet, with $5 going to the winner. But he says he hasn't heard
anything about a name yet.
"It's coming!" says Leslie Coul, assistant food and beverage manager for the AMS. "A committee is deliberating on a name and we're
trying to get a really good one," she says.
Coul says the name chosen may be one submitted in the contest, but
she says the committee is still open to suggestions from students.
In that case, for the Snack Bar. what about The Hack Bar'And. for
the Pasta Bar, we suggest Plastic Pasta, or...wait a minute, how
about...Pango Pango?

commitment to the student population.
"Students get pushed aside often,"
he said. "This is one extra service we
are providing for students in the
hope that they will stay with us for a
long time."
McLure said the idea for the new
account was based on student suggestions some of which were brought
up in a TCU advisory committee
meeting held in March, Margaret
Copping, former Alma Mater Society
president who sits on a TCU advisory committee said.
"Students have a tremendous
temptation to spend during the year
and this service might be of great use
to some students," he said.
Copping said the AMS asked the
TCU to establish a branch at UBC to
handle student loans because the
other banks including the Bank of
Montreal were unresponsive to
AMS requests to keep their student
loan handling services at UBC.
"The TCU's level of response to
students is much higher than the
other banks on campus."
Wayne McAlpine, Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce UBC
branch manager, said his bank's
decision to move student loan services downtown was made to centralize the process and make it more
efficient.
Loan requests don't just come
from UBC, he said, adding some of
the smaller branches handling the
loans "didn't know what they were
doing."
The Bank of Montreal also no
longer handles student loans at its
UBC branch.
McLure said the Student Budgeter account will also be available at
other Vancouver TCU branches.
The account, based on a $6000
total, will provide $2000 for expenses
immediately in September and allow
for an $800 term deposit to pay fees
in January. The rest of the money
will go into the Student Budgeter
account which would pay between
five and six per cent interest and
provide $457 per month from October to April.
