Vol. LXVI, No. 4
Vancouver, B.C. Friday, September 23,1983
In a small East Vancouver apartment, a
young woman animatedly describes
her participation in Canada's first
women's peace camp.
Pat Hercus' face is framed by her
shoulder length hair and her eyes sparkle as
she talks about the trip to Cole Bay, Sask.
"I thought the area would be a wasteland
of rocks and desert, but in fact it's incredibly beautiful — birch, alder, evergreen
forest — and in the middle of the (Primrose
testing) range is this huge lake," she says.
Her face glows as she describes this area
of northern Saskatchewan, where
American cruise missiles will be tested this
Seventy-six women from Western
Canada, Quebec, and West Germany joined the week-long August camp to protest
the missile testing. They were inspired by a
permanent camp at Greenham Common in
England, explains Hercus.
Greenham Common is where cruise
missiles will be deployed this winter.
Women have also started peace camps at
Seneca Falls, N.Y., the missile storage area,
and at Puget Sound, Wash., where the
missiles are built.
"By going up to Cole Bay, we completed
the chain," says Hercus.
The Canadian women had initially planned to camp near Cold Lake, Alta., but an
invitation from native people near Primrose
Lake made them change their minds just
two weeks before they planned to leave.
In a spring peace camp near Cold Lake,
protesters encountered hostility from local
people, says Hercus. This is because many
northerners are economically dependent on
the Cold Lake military base, she explains.
"By contrast, Cole Bay was like open
One local Metis woman, Vye Bouvier,
gave the campers a workshop on the
history of the range and its effect
on people in the area.
The testing range was native land until
the Department of National Defence
bought it for one dollar an acre just 30 years
ago, Bouvier said.
Now, F-16's regularly roar over the
native's homes, and bomb blasts sometimes
smash dishes onto the floor, she said.
Another Metis woman told the campers
"What I hate most is when the planes fly so
low you can smell the fuel."
The peace campers heard rumours that
the defoliant Agent White, a related
chemical to Agent Orange, was being tested
on the range. Agent Orange was the foliant
used in Viet Nam and is currently the sub
ject of law suits by U.S. veterans exposed to
the substance during the war. The foliant is
carcinogenic and causes birth defects.
Native Saskatchewan people only began
dying of cancer 10 years ago, one woman
told Patty Gibson, a camp participant and
editor of the feminist publication Kinesis.
The camp, which was filmed by women
from the National Film Board, greatly
strengthened the link between indigenous
people and women working for disarmament, says Gibson.
"It was probably the most significant
political event that I have ever attended,"
she says. "They saw us as women of
Native men were particularly understanding about the group's decision to have an
all women's camp, says Gibson.
Many of them drove women and children
to the camp to participate in workshops on
militarism and non-violent action, she says.
"Not a single one of those men wanted
entrance to the camp."
Gibson is used to charges of reverse sexism. Patiently, she explains why men were
excluded from the camp.
"These are actions that women have
taken on — women going directly to the
military site and setting up a peace camp.
"What I see is an attempt to form a
distinctively women's protest. Men aren't
attached to the kinds of symbols women are
drawing into their actions."
On the last evening of the camp, the
Women camp
to protest
women planned a symbolic ritual, says Hercus. They formed a circle in a clearing in the
"We sort of ground ourselves into the
space," says Hercus.
Each woman had written down what she
felt was the most oppressive symbol of
militarism. In turn, women read out their
thoughts and cast the papers into the fire.
"A lot of people were pretty upset...crying. We would hum to make them feel more
safe. It was neat. It was like an old ritual,"
Hercus says
She felt the oppression of time the most.
"The amount of time I have spent feeling
like I have no future, the time people have
spent protesting nuclear war, time spent
furthering the arms race, time that could
have been spent making the world a good
place," she explains.
"A lot of people wanted to banish fear,"
she adds.
The women each spoke again, sharing
thoughts about things which give them
hope and power — friends, nature, other
women in the past who have protested war.
In the final pan of the ritual, each
woman presented a symbol of what she
wanted to see in a different world. One by
one, symbols were placed on the new world
quilt, a large blue boll: of cloth encircling
the fire like ribbon.
One woman contributed a hammock she
had made for her six-month old child, "so
the world would be safe for children."
Another poured a vial of flour on the
quilt. "Money for food, not bones," she
Several native women also attended the
ritual. The last gift for the quilt was a handmade beaded belt intended to symbolize
native people in the new world.
The ritual ended with a song:
We are the flow
We are the ebb
We are the weavers
We are the web.
"We sang it so many times that there
were harmonies. It was wild," Hercus says.
For some of the women, the weekend
ended with a stop at Cold Lake military base, says Hercus.
An unmarked car followed their vehicles
from Cole Bay, she says.
A sign at the base's entrance warned that
the area was off-limits to all but military
"We all got as close as we could," says
Hercus. "We made a circle and just stood
in silence for two minutes." she laughs. "A
couple of bombers flew over."
Some women planted spiderwort seeds by
the base. The spiderwort is the international
flower of the anti-nuclear movement. Its
blossoms turn from blue to pink when exposed to radiation.
Men photographed the seed planting
from the base, says Hercus.
"We were not intimidated!" she says. Page 2

Maranathas misled presidents
UBC president George Pedersen and Alma
Mater Society president Mitch Hetman were
used as recruiting tools for a "deliberately
misrepresented" event sponsored by the controversial Maranatha Christian club, according to campus chaplains.
And Hetman regrets attending the event, a
reception for first year and international
students, because he feels he was used by the
club for its own gain.
"I was misled. I was too trusting. I should
have asked more questions," Hetman said in
an interview Wednesday. "The two
presidents were the big lights. We were suddenly the stage show."
The Maranatha club, whose recruiting
techniques have been described as similar to
those of cult groups, invited Hetman to
speak at the registration week reception for
students, claiming that it was sponsored by
all of UBC's various Christian clubs, Hetman
But according to campus chaplains several
Christian groups had absolutely no connection to it.
And although Pedersen denies being
manipulated, Anglican and United Church
chaplain George Hermanson says the president was used as the"draw in card" for the
"They structured the whole event around
Pedersen," Hermanson said. "They definite
ly used him as part of their recruiting campaign."
Hermanson said the Maranathas try to
recruit first year and international students
into their group because such students tend
to be vulnerable, disoriented and lonely at
the beginning of the school year and are easily convinced to join.
"Their recruiting campaign is similar to
that of cults," he said. "The Mananathas are
less than forthright about themselves."
During registration week Maranatha
members standing at the end of registration
line ups approached students, asking them if
they were first year or international students
and if so handing them an invitation to the
event, with Pedersen and Hetman's names
prominently featured.
At the bottom of the leaflet was a tear off
portion with space left for a student's name,
address and telephone number. According to
UBC Lutheran chaplain Ray Schultz, many
first year students probably assumed it was
one more form they had to fill out to register.
Although Pedersen was warned by several
individuals, including Hermanson, that his
name was being used to "suck in" students
to the event who would think it was an official UBC function, the president does not
feel he was misled by the Maranatha group.
"I don't feel that way at all," Pedersen
claimed Wednesday. He said the Maranathas
were   "very   straightforward"   about   the
reception and told him they themselves were
sponsoring it.
But one student council member in a
special memo to Pedersen warned that the
president's name and his attendance were being used to" attract" students. "It (the
memo) effectively said that speaking to first
year students at an event sponsored by the
Maranathas is the same as going to one sponsored by the Marxist-Leninists," said the
council member, who requested anonymity.
Hetman said he felt obliged to attend the
Sept. 10 event because he had been personally invited by a Maranatha member who is
also a member of the AMS student administrative commission, which is responsible for student union administration duties.
Maranatha and SAC member Mona Abed
invited Hetman and told him Pedersen would
also be speaking at the event, Hetman said.
"Mona told me Pedersen was going to be
there, so I said, 'why not?' " he said.
In a further written invitation to Hetman,
Maranatha club president Darwin Dewar said
that students attending would "be introduced to the various Christian clubs on campus
with an explanation of both their purpose
and emphasis."
But Hermanson and Schultz said that
mainstream, non-fundamentalist religious
groups that they are associated with were not
involved in sponsoring or organizing the
However Abed claimed in an interview
that all campus Christian clubs had been invited by telephone. "All were invited, in that
sense all of them were involved," she said.
She agreed the event was sponsored by
, Maranatha but said it was done "in cooperation with other interested Christian clubs."
Hermanson, who has criticized the
Maranatha group's tactics on campus several
times before, said little is known about the
"It's hard to get direct information about
their group. They're very elusive and
The Maranathas emerged on campus two
years ago with its touring minister Rice
Broocks. His noon hour preaching, complete
with loudspeakers and a microphone,
angered many students who later protested
about the noise.
And last year, Nick Pappis and Maranatha
Campus Ministries held a "rock and roll"
seminar in which they damned the music as a
product of Satan. The club has repeatedly
raised the ire of UBC's chaplains because
they believe Maranatha discredits and
trivializes other religions on campus.
The Maranatha organization was started
10 years ago in the Southern U.S. bible belt
and now has more than 60 American
chapters and three in Canada. At UBC the
Maranatha Christian club is a small but
growing fundamentalist group that regularly
shows films and holds other recruitment
events on campus.

UBC may need work funds
UBC work study coordinator
Sheila Summers says she has "no
plans" if work study funds are cut
by the university.
"We operate on a first-come
first-serve basis, and plan to keep
mailing out authorizations until the
money runs out," said Summers.
Currently students are not being
sent their authorization to work
forms because of the university's
hiring freeze.
"The authorizations are ready to
be sent, but are being held until further notice," said Summers.
Of the 900 jobs posted, the work
study funds will "hopefully cover
about 400" said awards officer
Byron Hender.  "It might be less
than that," added Hender, saying
that the money from the university
is still not confirmed. He said the
$175,000 university contribution
could be changed to help compensate for the $4 million shortfall this
year. "The hiring freeze will be
reviewed by Oct. 5," said Hender.
One thousand and two hundred
students are eligible for the program, but only 466 applications have
been completed and returned. But
the accepted applicants are not
guaranteed a job. So far, only 248
authorizations to work have been
sent out. Of these, 202 have already
been refered to departments to be

in trouble
Government reports of a possible
five per cent cut in UBC's 1984-85
operating grant could mean disaster
for the university, administration
president George Pedersen said.
"For this university, that is $10
million, and let me tell you, I don't
have a clue how we would respond
to a $10 million cut," he said. UBC
had expected the. same operating
grant for the next five years,
Pedersen added.
"This is precisely the time when
governments should be investing
more in people aged 18 to 24," said
Pedersen. "They will be supported
in one way or another, whether
through welfare, UIC, or whatever.
It is much more impressive to invest
in them by ensuring that they are in
our universities."
Computer science head James
Varah also criticized the provincial
government's restraint program. "I
certainly don't think the government is justified in it's (university)
cutbacks," he said. "If we had to
cut five per cent, I don't know
where it would come from.
"We just couldn't live with it.
We've already stretched our
resources to the limit," Varah said.
"We're expecting some kind of
direction from the president's office."
Forestry dean Robert Kennedy
also said a five per cent cut would
have disastrous results.
"A cut would mean decreased
opportunities for entering students,
for students presently enrolled, and
for staff for research programs," he
"We would go to restricted enrolment," he added. "That makes an
elitest situation in a state
get into trouble," said Weiler.
"If some emergency does happen, we won't have enough people
to handle it."
The department was told this
week it could not hire additional
teaching assistants to open another
first year lab, he said.
The enrolment increase of 600
students over two years has also affected second year chemistry majors, said Weiler.
One of their required courses was
full before many students
registered, forcing them to take an
alternative course, he said.
"I feel devastated for the
students," said Weiler. "The quality of their education has been eroded."
Lecture halls are not large
enough for the number of first year
students accepted into the department, Weiler said. Nearly a dozen
students have to sit in one
classroom's aisles.
"It's difficult to estimate how
many first year students will continue in our department, but normally we would be able to handle
the enrolment."
There is a tremendous need for
more teachers and other resources
at the undergraduate level, said
If funding is not increased,
potentially "disastrous" cuts might
have to be made in other areas of
the department, he said.
"Committments have been made
to our undergraduate program but
we musn't allow that to affect
graduate education research."
Like other UBC department
heads, Weiler is waiting to know if
other budget cuts have to be made.
"I can't see it do anything but get
Freeze delays loans
Over 1,000 UBC students are still
waiting for their federal loan and
provincial grant assessments
because the financial aid office is
understaffed, according to a UBC
awards officer.
The administration's recently imposed hiring freeze is creating
"great difficulty" for the awards
office, said Byron Hender, UBC's
financial aid director.
"We're already run off our
The administration's refusal to
hire more student service workers
and the provincial government's
delay in announcing its contribution to the student aid program
have increased the office's workload tremendously and created a
two month backlog of assessments,
Hender said.
Students will have to wait a
month for their documents after
receiving their assessments, he added.
And students who applied for a
loan before July 4, the early
deadline, should receive their
documents by the end of September
or the first week of October, he
said. Those who applied in mid-
July will receive their documents
within a month.
But students just applying should
not expect to see any money before
December, he said.
Tuition and residence fee deferrals have been arranged for students
who applied before the early
deadline. They can also obtain an
advance on their loan if it is absolutely necessary, Hender said.
"Students who applied after July
4 will run into hassles. All I can say
is they will have to make their own
case to the university."
Meanwhile, student appeals for
more loan and grant money will be
delayed because the education
ministry is no longer part of the appeal procedure.
Previously, a student appeal was
processed by three groups — the
local university, the education
ministry and an appeals committee.
UBC's assistant student aid director
Dan Worsley said the office and the
committee has a greatly increased
workload because they must now
do the ministry's task, which includes detailing reports for each individual case.
"The more time consuming process means we haven't been able to
send many appeals to the committee," Worsley said, adding there is
currently a one month wait for an
appointment to discuss a case. Page 4

Qualified students denied proper entrance
OTTAWA (CUP) — The federal
government has rejected calls to administer emergency treatment to
Canada's critically swollen post
secondary institutions.
As tens of thousands of qualified
students are turned away from
universities and colleges across the
country, finance minister Marc
Lalonde says his government
already contributes more than its'
share to education.
But Pauline Jewett, NDP critic
for post secondary education, insists the government must respond
to the "national state of
emergency" for Canadian youth.
"The situation of Canadian
youth has reached crisis proportions," Jewett told the House of
Commons Sept. 13. "Jobs are not
there, and now entry to post secondary educational institutions is being denied to thousands upon
thousands of qualified students in
the country."
She said unless the government
takes emergency steps, "the principle of accessibility, which I thought
the government believed in, is going
to be almost totally eroded."
The federal government's six and
five restraint program has cost post
secondary education about $102
million across the country, she said
in a Sept. 14 interview.

Meanwhile, another summer of
heavy unemployment for young
people has led to massive enrolment
increases but Jewett said short-
funded institutions cannot handle
the increase.
She said the NDP will put heavy
emphasis on the education crisis
this fall.
"I want to get (the Liberals) to
understand that a very important
principle is at stake," Jewett said.
"I think the Liberals are sensitive
on that issue. There must be some
Liberal   cabinet   ministers   who
believe in equality of opportunity."
Ontario has been the country's
worst-hit province for turning away
qualified students.
But Richard Balnis, a researcher
for the Canadian Federation of
Students' Ontario region, says accurate figures on the numbers of
students who are qualified to attend
university or college but have been
rejected are impossible to obtain.
"(The ministry of education)
doesn't know because they're afraid
to know," Balnis said. "They simply don't seek that kind of informa-

at its general meeting next week.

Cruise makers deny human rights
Canada's decision to help build
and test the cruise missile is
politically and economically vital to
the U.S., a noted peace activist said
Canada's role in testing the cruise
has "less to do with SS-20's" than
it does with demonstrating "the
control of Canada by the U.S. and
Canada's participation in U.S.
foreign policy to the rest of the
world," Ken Hancock told 50 people in La Quena coffeehouse on
Commerical Ave.
Canada is the most important
country in the world to U.S. imperialism, he said.
"Traditionally, Canada has been
the safest political environment in
the world for U.S. interest and investment," said Hancock, a
member of the Toronto based
cruise missile conversion project.
The cruise missile is an integrated
weapons system of chemical, conventional, and nuclear warfare,
which will be deployed around the
world against countries such as
Central America, the Middle East,

Accessibility not guaranteed
TORONTO (CUP) — The head
of the Council of Ontario Universities says higher education will
become the preserve of the socially
privileged unless funding is soon increased.
Speaking to a legislative committee looking into university deficits,
Alvin Lee said "If there is no improvement (in funding levels) then
academics can no longer guarantee
broad accessibility."
The committee, set up to investigate proposed legislation to
limit university deficits, spent much
of its Sept. 5 to 9 meeting discussing
the broader topic of accessibility.
"If the resources are not made
available, then existing policy on
accessibility should be changed,"
Lee told the committee.
"We are willing to see accessibility reduced rather than quality," he
Lee warned if underfunding continues "we'll have things called
universities that won't be universities. They'll be mass education
centres that do little for the students
in them.
"What is at stake is a good deal
of our future as an advanced,
humane, technological society."
Opposition members of the
legislature agreed with Lee's assessment. Liberal MLA Sean Conway
said the province could no longer
afford to allow universities to
deteriorate because of underfunding.
"The effects of a decade of
underfunding are everywhere apparent. Ontario ranks last among
the provinces in its operating grants
per student, yet tuition fees set by
the   government   are   among   the
highest in Canada," Conway said.
Lee said if underfunding leads to
tougher admission standards
students with more affluent
backgrounds will be favored.
"I don't know if students will be
denied positions this year or not,
but even if someone (from Southern
Ontario) finds a position at a northern university there may be
serious economic impediments,
despite (the Ontario Student Aid
Program)," he said.
Clubs seek students
As the first clubs day began
Thursday, SUB teemed with
curious students and more than 100
clubs had a field day.
Religious clubs set up on the first
floor were the most visible. Other
high profile groups were political
clubs, martial arts clubs, sports
oriented clubs, community interest
groups and hobby clubs, most of
whom received floor space upstairs.
First year student Natalie
Chernenkoff said she would not
have gone upstairs if she had not
been with a second year friend.
The political clubs looked the
most interesting, said Chernenkoff.
"I'm not interested in the
religious ones," she said. "There
should be just one of them."
Many club representatives
though the downstairs booths provided better exposure.
Orienteering Club member Mark
McMillan said some people didn't
even go upstairs.
"People just cruise the main
floor and don't know there's
something up here," he said.

The missile's guidance system is
being built by Litton Systems of
Canada, a U.S. subsidiary.
"Litton Industries is a perfect example of militarized corporate
America," Hancock said.
Litton has offices in the Pentagon, and 27 former high ranking
Pentagon officers are on its board
of directors, he said. Former U.S.
secretary of defence Robert
McNamara was an original founder
of Litton, he added.
Litton has been charged with 41
labor violations in the last 20 years,
and has moved some of its factories
to the third world when labour
unions became too powerful, said
Measures have been taken to prevent Litton workers from unioniz
ing, he said.
"They weed out those with any
social conscience or organizing experience by giving them
psychologocal tests," he said.
The cruise missile conversion
project is working to convert Lit-
ton's military production to production which meets human needs.
They are planning a week of civil
disobedience in November to protest the factory's construction of
the guidance system.
"Non-cooperation and civil
disobedience are the only powers we
have as a response to the moral
bankruptcy of government leaders,
said Hancock.
Civil disobedience is necessary to
save the planet from the corporations and the governments, said
Bookstore caught
short of titles
Students scrambling to buy textbooks before their first midterms
may be out of luck. UBC's flashy
new bookstore is experiencing a
greater shortage of required texts
than in previous years.
"We got caught short on quite a
number of titles this year," said
bookstore manager John
Hedgecock. The bookstore was
short 300 titles out of a total of
6,000, he said.
Mostly undergraduate arts and
education courses were short stocked, he said.
Professors submit the names and
numbers of books they need for
their students to the bookstore, but
Hedgecock said he often alters their
estimates because they may over
order, he said. Professors may
order books for their courses that
never sell.
"Overstock is very costly. The
ideal would be to have one book left
on the shelf, no more, no less."
Hedgecock said he often makes
his own estimates or relies on his
staff for figures. I've got some very
smart people here. We've got
records of all the sales."
Stores ban porn
The UBC bookstore is still selling
pornography despite a petition circulated last year by UBC students
requesting its removal.
Bookstore director John
Hedgecock said the bookstore will
continue to sell Playboy, Penthouse
and Playgirl unless the UBC board
of governors dictates otherwise.
One Vancouver educational institution has already banned pornography from its bookstore
Vancouver Community College
president Tony Manera said the
magazines were withdrawn from
the stores after student society
members complained to the board
of trustees.
In response to protests about selling pornography in the UBC
bookstore, Hedgecock has moved
the magazines to the back row of
the magazine rack, where only the
titles show.
Pornography does not promote
violence toward women any more
than Time magazine does, said
"We're surrounded by
violence," he said. "Anyone could
buy a book on chemistry and build
a bomb, but no-one asks me if I'm
promoting violence by stocking
chemistry books."
The bookstore would not stock
pornography if there was no market
for it, said Hedgecock, admitting
the UBC market is a slight one.
Some store owners have also
removed pornography from their
A Maple Ridge bookstore owner
banned pornography from her store
after reading a book which explained the link between pornography
and sexual crimes.
Job prospects grim
OTTAWA (CUP) — Economists call it the discouraged worker effect.
The person who can't find work and has stopped looking, calls it giving up.
Either way, the unemployment statistics look better than they really are
because students leave the labor force.
Across Canada returning students experienced 13.7 per cent unemployment in August, not counting the discouraged worker effect, according to
Statistics Canada. Canadian youth unemployment reached an average of
19.4 per cent, ranging from 21.5 per cent in B.C. to 8.7 per cent in
And there's not much hope for the future.
The federal government took a futile shot at addressing the crisis by funding a special conference on youth unemployment at St. John's in August.
But the four day affair ended in total disarray, and a proposal to start a
Young Canadian Action Congress did not get approval from delegates who
came from around the country.
The conference reached a pathetic conclusion when the Ontario delegation withdrew its recommendation to distribute the conference final report,
saying it contained nothing worth publicizing.
Meanwhile', the federal employment department has recently prepared a
study which says young people can expect 19.4 per cent unemployment well
in 1985. Page 6

School denied to thousands
figures aren't available yet but it appears Ontario's community college
system will turn away record
numbers of qualified applicants this
Interviews with registrars at five
of Ontario's 22 colleges make it
clear that many colleges are receiving more applications than they can
possibly accept.
By the first week of September,
Ottawa's Algonquin College had
received 18,200 applications for
4,700 first-year spots in post secondary diploma programs.
The college received about 1000
more applications than last year,
said Jean Pitre, director of admissions for Algonquin.
Pitre said at the beginning of
September there were places
available in only 15 of the college's
150 diploma programs.
The same pattern has been
repeated at four Metropolitan
Toronto colleges, Humber College
has received 24,000 applications for
5,000 spots, while Seneca, with
5,000 places available for first-year
students, received 28,572 applications.
Both Sheridan and George
Brown Colleges also received
thousands more applications than
places available.
Scot Blythe, a researcher with the
Canadian Federation of Students-
Ontario, said up to 20 per cent of
qualified applicants will not find
places in the college system.
Many southern Ontario students
simply can't afford to move to northern Ontario where there are college places available. "Unless they
can commute to Sudbury every day
they've got nowhere to go," Blythe

AMS to attend non-CFS meeting
Student council voted Wednesday to send delegates to an upcoming University of Toronto conference examining the goals and
purpose of the Canadian Federation of Students.
Several councillors objected to
sending delegates who will also be
attending a CFS conference in Ottawa the same week. "It seems to
me that two conferences is a lot to
do for students," arts representative Miriam Sobrino said.
Arts rep Barb Irwin said there will
be enough qualified people interested in attending both. She said
the U. of T. conference will let people openly criticize and give credit
to CFS. "It (the conference) should
not be intrepreted as an anti-CFS
But arts proxy Jon Gates said there
is no need to attend two conferences. He said a copy of the proceedings of the U. of T. conference
could be obtained instead of attending it.
Council voted at it's June 29
meeting to send a letter of support
to the conference organizers and
tentatively agreed to attend if the
costs were reasonable.
Lisa Hebert, Alma Mater Society
external affairs coordinator, said
there is no money left in her travel
budget to finance delegates to the
conference. Council decided to take
money from their rapidly depleting
contingency fund.
But in another matter, council
refused  to  donate  $500 for the
Joyce Fund, a CFS endorsed bursary open to students actively involved in social issues.
Engineering representative Neil
Smith said the money should not be
donated because the bursary can go
to students outside UBC. AMS
director of administration Alan
Pinkney said an award fund administered by the AMS solely for
UBC students would be preferable.

Nukes uncovered
Oceans best place for waste
Oceans are the safest place to
dump high level radioactive waste,
a nuclear expert said Sept. 12 at the
fourth Pacific Basin nuclear conference.
The conference, which was held
in the Hyatt Regency from Sept.
11-15, brought together experts
from around the world to discuss
nuclear developments in countries
such as Canada, Japan, and the
Oceanic eco-systems easily adapt
to radioactivity, said D. R. Anderson, supervisor of seabed disposal
at Sandia National Laboratories in
New Mexico. "Organisms in the
ocean are used to a garbage dump.
They've had to adjust to all kinds of
material," Anderson told a conference session on waste management.
Rock lobsters and four kinds of
shrimp have already adapted to permanent levels of radio-activity in
their bodies, he claimed.
The U.S. dumped 94,603 tonnes
of waste from nuclear reactors and
nuclear weapons construction into
the ocean in 1982, said Anderson.
The dumping sites were studied by
the Environmental Protection
Agency and ocean scientists, who
concluded the effect on the ocean
was minimal, he said.
"It's very hard to even find
where it was put in," he added.
The ocean is also the safest place
for radioactive substances because
Turret gives clue
(RNR/CUP) — Residents of San Jose, California, were disturbed
recently when a eight foot cyclone fence rigged with electronic sensors
suddenly appeared around an abandoned gas station. But it was the
tower and gun turret that really set them off.
It turned out their filling station had been turned into a training
camp for South Koreans who were learning how to guard their country's nuclear reactors.
The Stanford Technology Corporation, which is running the program, says it plans to move the training centre next month. But that
wasn't fast enough for the city, which slapped them with a building
code citation, ruling the gun turret is not a normal commercial
•.neighborhood structure.
"The establishment of this kind
of legislation throws into doubt the
very rule of law in this country.
When the rule of law in a country is
challenged you've established the
very kind of society that this bill
purports to prevent," he said.

CFS leader not
blind to problems
Canadian University Press
National Bureau
OTTAWA — For someone who
has spent the past four months perched on top of Canada's tottering
student movement, Graham
Dowdell seems remarkably relaxed.
Dowdell has taken the
eoncerned-and-critical-but mellow-
and-optimistic approach to chairing
the Canadian Federation of
Students and his style allows him to
remain calm while the federation
sputters on the brink of political
and financial insolvency.
The 26-year-old University of
Regina graduate easily won the
federation's top executive position
at the CFS general meeting in
Saskatoon last May, when he ran
against a little-known candidate
from Ontario.
Dowdell took on the job at an
especially bad time for CFS.
Students across the country had just
dealt the federation a series of
membership rejections, including a
61 per cent referendum loss at the
University of Toronto, and a successful pull-out referendum at St.
Mary's University in Halifax, which
was the first campus to join CFS.
At the general meeting where
Dowdell was elected, delegates were
grappling with regional splits, conflict between the political and services branches, a $47,000 deficit,
and general disagreement over the
federation's purpose and direction.
The Student Union of Nova
Scotia was launching a barrage of
criticisms at CFS for ignoring the
needs of Maritime students. On the
other side of the country the
Federation of Alberta Students had
just self-destructed, leaving
students there in disarray.
Dowdell knew he was taking on a
difficult task. He inherited the job
from Brenda Cote, who after a one-
year term was so disillusioned with
the federation she publically admitted she wished she had never taken
Cote, the federation's first chair,
was elected on an activist ticket
after she led a dramatic one-week
occupation at the Universite de
Moncton administration building to
protest a massive tuition increase.
But Cote's militant views were
not shared by other executive
members, and she says she spent the
year feeling stifled and frustrated.
Dowdell insists this year will be
different. "I'm really optimistic,"
he says. "The bottom line on all
this is that CFS has bottomed out.
We're on our way up."
Dowdell says this following a
quiet summer, before the onslaught
of students returning for the fall
semester have recovered from
registration. But his optimism may
not be totally unfounded.
At the May conference, delegates
made serious efforts to repair their
organization. They made moves to
combine the boards directing the
federation's political and service activities, and cut down the number
of executives on the central committee.
They committed themselves to
eliminating 80 per cent of their
deficit by the end of the year, and
so far they have met their financial
Delegates also decided the federation should focus its resources on
political issues rather than running
membership referenda on prospective member campuses.
"People know the precarious
state we're in, and they aren't
prepared to over-extend our
resources this year," says Dowdell.
"We're saying, let's do a good job
of servicing the members already in
the organization, and then hopefully non-members will look at us and
want to join.
"If people refuse to work within
CFS and solve its problems, then
there won't be an effective student
voice for a long time. If CFS
doesn't make it ..." Dowdell
shakes his head.
Trolley buses
coming soon
Long awaited trolley bus lines
will soon be placed along University boulevard.
B.C. Transit planner John Mills
said the trolley lines will allow increased bus service to UBC and help
ease .overcrowding which is
especially bad this year because of
high enrolment.
"Trolley service will decrease
congestion by about 30 per cent,"
Mills said.
The lines will run down University boulevard from Blanca loop to
the campus core.
University endowment lands
manager Ron O'Genski said there
are no plans to widen University
boulevard although the trolleys are
wider than the diesel buses which
currently use the route.
But Mills said the route may be
closed during trolley installation
and cause "some inconvenience."
After the lines are installed, UBC
will be served exclusively by trolleys,
Mills added.
The lower operating costs
resulting from the new service will
provide a "potential for savings,"
he said.
Also, UEL authorities will be
upgrading street lighting along the
boulevard by adding lamps to the
trolley poles, he said. Page 8

AMS squanders money say Socreds
A letter to Mitch Hetman.
Thank you for your August 9,
1983, letter to the Honourable
Claude Richmond regarding your
concern for human rights in British
I am surprised that a university
student such as yourself has not
taken the time or initiative to acquaint yourself with Bill 27, the new
Human Rights Act, before wasting
the monies contributed by students
by mailing an uninformed letter to
ail 57 MLA's in B.C. Please find
AMS fire opening shot in trilogy
A letter to a Member of the Legislative Assembly.
On behalf of the Alma Mater Society of the University of British
Columbia, 1 am writing to you to tell you of our concerns dealing
with the government's decision to dissolve the Human Rights
Branch. The AMS has never knowingly used discriminating hiring or
firing practices in the past and do not plan to do so in the future.
However, we are all aware that many employers do use such practices. Many advances in inter-human relations have come about
because of the Branch's work, and we feel that to dissolve the
Human Rights Brnach will lead us back to the problems we have
been able to overcome in the past. Thus we feel compelled to ask that
you fight to repeal this decision. Mitch Hetman
alma mater society president
enclosed for your edification a copy
of the proposed legislation.
You will note, should you read
the document, that the area of protection for human rights has been
expanded and now prohibits
discrimination against individuals
with physical or mental disabilities.
As the Human Rights Act
supercedes the former Human
Rights Code, the Human Rights
Branch has now been replaced by
the Council of Human Rights which
is empowered to ensure observance
of Bill 27. Please be assured that the
new Council will act as judiciously
as possible to enforce human rights
in British Columbia.
You state in your letter that "we
are all aware that many employers
use (discriminatory) hiring practices." If you have such knowledge,
sir, I suggest you inform the Council of Human Rights of these transgressions.   Or,  if you  lack  the
courage of your convictions, please
send them to the Honourable
Claude Richmond and he will forward them to the Council for you.
In the interim, I will send a copy
of your correspondence and this letter to The Ubyssey so that your
fellow students can observe how the
Alma Mater Society is squandering
their dues.
Certainly the limited funds of
university students should not be
spent on the cost of postage, paper,
envelopes, and the time and effort
that went into perpetuating untruths as you have done in your letter to members of the Government.
Please be assured that I will inform the Honourable Claude Richmond of your concerns. Thank you
again for your letter.

Hetman spikes return volley in letter war
A letter to Will McMartin
This letter is in response to some
of the concerns raised in your letter
to me of August 19, 1983. As
students, doing our homework is a
fact of our daily lives, and we
sometimes forget that not all people
are as conscientious. It is apparent
from your letter that you have not
made yourself familiar with Bill 27
and its ramifications. Because of
your demonstrated concern for our
education, I have found the time in
my busy schedule to help you with
As you noted, physical and mental disabilities are included in Bill 27
as prohibited grounds for
discrimination. What you failed to
note was that with the elimination
of the reasonable cause sections
that were in the Human Rights
Code, it is now necessary for a complainant to prove intent to
discriminate. This leaves this group
more open to systematic discrimination.
For example, if a physically
disabled person fails to get a job
because he/she was unable to get to
an interview because there was no
wheelchair access to a building,
they would have to prove that that
lack of access was deliberately intended to exclude wheelchair bound
persons. In addition, of course, the
limitations on the investigation procedure, and the added costs to the
complainant of a Board of Inquiry
would apply to persons with
physical and mental disabilities
along with everyone else.
In the fourth paragraph of your
letter you refer to the new Council
of Human Rights. You are apparently unaware that there is no
provision in the new bill for staffing
for the council. Considering the
Branch, with a total staff in excess
of 30 professionals (not political appointees) handled approximately
10,800 complaints a year, it is hard
to believe that a council of five will
be able to do as good a job.
Your fifth paragraph is particularly uninformed, so I will do
my best to help you. First, although
you work for a cabinet minister,
you don't seem to be aware (in
keeping with many of your colleagues) that legislation is not in effect until passed by the body competent to do so. The Human Rights
Code is still the law of this province, and it hardly seems
reasonable to refer matters to a
Council that does not legally exist.
Second, it is apparent that you are
not aware of the contents of the
Human Rights Commission's last
three reports to the Minister.  I
stand by the statement that many
employers discriminate when hiring. September 21 the Minister of
Labour named three boards of inquiry into precisely this form of
If you are further interested in
knowing the manifest and
numerous shortcomings of the pro
posed new human rights legislation,
please feel free to write me, as I
have only touched on areas that you
have mentioned, and there are
others you should probably aquaint
yourself with.

plaints from one of investigation
and concilliation to one of confrontation. The former process leads
itself to education on the issues involved whilst the latter does not.
The tone of your letter indicates
that you are in sympathy with the
government's confrontational approach. It is unfortunate that we
should have to remind you that
students, in concert with the rest of
the taxpayers of this province, pay
your salary. One of the things we;
should be able to expect from our
employees is a level of competence
that indicates some knowledge of

We are pleased to see that you are

too have done some work to
publicize it. Copies of this letter will

Extra Terrific places to be on planet UBC
How many of you have seen
E.T.? The story of a creature who is
stranded on Earth. At first
everyone is afraid of E.T., and he
feels so alone. After a short time he
makes a friend, then two friends,
then three, and so on. It is this
friendship which gets him through a
very uncertain time and ultimately
helps him reach his goal of returning home.
Many of you are like E.T. Some
are new to university life and are
afraid of what is expected; papers
due, tough classes and so on.
Others are mid-way in the university life and have adapted to the
routines and have a reasonable idea
of what is expected while here.
Then the remainder of you are near-
ing your goal that is to graduate.
As members of the fraternities
and sororities you -are more fortunate than many students attending
because with your membership a
circle of friends has evolved. It may
have started during rush when you
made one friend or two, then
multiplied to many friends. If you
participate in other student and
community organizations as well,
your circle of friends is probably
even larger. Like E.T. in the movie,
you have undoubtedly found

opportunities exist to meet people,
make friends, engage in social and

wonderful opportunity. The only
limitations are those which you
place on yourself. If I could offer
advice it would be to take advantage of all the opportunities you can
while maintaining high academic
standards. You will never have
those opportunities again and what
a wonderful way to look back in the
years ahead.
When E.T. was readying himself
to leave earth he had wonderful
friends with him when finally
reaching his goal. As you prepare to
leave university you, too, will have
wonderful friends who will have
been with you while you attained
your goal. You will be able to look
back and remember the happy times
you spent at UBC. And like E.T.,
in some respects you will be sorry to
leave, but you will take with you
something special. You are a
member for life of your fraternity
or sorority but never more so than
right now. Avail yourself of all the
aspects your membership can offer
and you will leave knowing it was,
truly, a special time.

Hedging it
Apprehensively, she edged between two students and proceeded up
the political science aisle. She stopped, looked at the shelves blankly,
flicked back some hair, looked up and down the aisle's shelves, and
shrugged. The shelf below her course number was empty — there were
no texts for her.
Book shortages, long lineups, and high text prices all mean students
here got shafted this year. This occurred despite bookstore manager
John- Hedgecock's claims last spring that the new bookstore would
assist students.
One woman in SUB said, "The Armoury lineups were never that
long," referring to the new bookstore. But a friend replied, "The problems makes sense. It's a new building, but the same bookstore.".
Cynical, yes. But accurate. The bookstore, if anything, is a greater
problem than ever for students.
A long standing student complaint has been high text prices, and they
didn't decrease this year. Last year The Ubyssey found off-campus
bookstores sold some texts for less than the UBC bookstore. This is undoubtedly true this year.
The price problem is compounded by professors who demand their
students buy expensive texts.
The bookstore refused to eliminate another cause of complaint: pornography. The bookstore still sells magazines depicting women being
degraded and absued.
Another student complaint is lineups which are longer and slower than
ever. Despite Hedgecock's claim the new store would increase the speed
and ease of text purchase, few students agree.
As late as Wednesday of the first week of classes students waited an
hour to be at the front of the line when the bookstore opened. This
lineup stretched from the bookstore, past the Biology building, to Main
mall and beyond.
And Hedgecock stili claimed with a straight face that students waited
only ten to fifteen minutes to purchase texts. He failed to specify
whether students waited ten minutes inside or outside.
In either case he's incorrect. Students said they waited over an hour to
enter the bookstore and often had to wait up to 25 minutes to have cheques approved inside the bookstore. Hedgecock's clerk's estimates of
the time involved also contradicted him.
But finally, this year the bookstore failed to fulfill it's purpose, supplying students with texts. In numerous cases books ran short quickly,
sometimes by Monday of the first week. Both the bookstore and professors failed to take into account increased enrollment this year, to the
student's detriment.
Bill 'affects student workers'
The UBC campus community alliance, representing unions,
associations, students and concerned individuals at UBC, urges the
Minister of Labour, Bob McClelland, to reconsider the proposed
restraint measures aimed at public sector workers and proposed
changes to the Employment Standards Act.
The proposed changes affecting public sector workers are an attack on the collective bargaining rights of workers at the university
and act to upset the climate of labour relations at UBC, potentially
affecting students who will be caught up in any labour-management
disputes caused by this legislation. The relevant acts must be
The proposed changes to the Employment Standards Act affect all
workers in the province and especially students who perform many
part-time and summer jobs which fall under the act. Rather than be
weakened, the act should be strengthened to ensure adequate
minimum working conditions for all citizens of British Columbia.

Council defends anti-Socred action
The letter from Norman Yates
which questioned UBC student's
council's overall right to vote on
political issues, and council decision
to join the Solidarity Coalition,
demands response.
Yes, council is the official
representative body of students at
UBC, and as such is responsible for
making both political and financial
decisions for the Aima Mater Society. These matters are voted on ever)'
two weeks on Wednesday at 6:30
p.m. in SUB 206. Decisions which
affect students can not avoid being
political — whether council decides
to install a sauna at the Whistler
Cabin, subsidize 5 cent
photocopiers in SUB, or to set
policy on student assistance for
meetings with government officials.
Students have every right and
responsibility to demand that those
who run as their representatives
declare their positions on any issue
of concern. Students have the right
to run for any position to represent
their constituency. Constituency,
senate and board of governor reps,
and executive members are all required to keep regular office hours,
so that students can communicte
their concerns to them. Enquire at
your constituency office as to when
they are available.
Yates suggests that his reps have
not declared their positions when
they are running for election. I
would like to remind him that when
I was elected, I ran on nine specific
issues, including student aid, quality of education, and underfunding.
There was a paragraph on each
issue. When I was elected, I knew
that I had a mandate to work on
those issues, and none of the positions that I have taken, including
voting to join the Solidarity Coali-
Hear ye, the students speak!
A letter to premier Bill Bennett.
On September 7, 1983, the UBC
students council voted to join the
Solidarity Coalition. This decision
was particularly noteworthy in that
it was supported by several individuals who have steadfastly opposed any moves toward left-wing
affiliations. We feel that protesting
the legislation surrounding your
restraint program is an issue beyond
party politics; it is a matter of
defending basic human rights and
We are unanimously opposed to
the 40 per cent slashing of student
assistance, and firmly believe that if
you studied the details of your program you would recognize many of
these moves as direct barriers to a
post-secondary education. We are
also deeply concerned about the
erosion of quality of education
which will be detrimental to our
province in both the short and long
However, our move was not based solely on student aid or university budget cuts; these form the basis
of a longstanding disagreement. We
are primarily concerned with the
pervasive disregard your legislation
shows for the protection of human
rights and democratic principles.
Until July 7, B.C. was progressive in its measures to protect
human rights. Now, due to arbitrary government decisions
longstanding employees can be
fired indiscriminately, tenants can
be evicted from rental dwellings
without reasonable cause, and
women and children are without
services that protected them from
physical abuse. The disabled will be
disallowed vital funds. That such
situations are allowed to occur solely on the basis of economic expediency shows a flagrant disregard
for the progress we have made
toward alleviating human suffering.
It is this step backward we protest;
we cannot sit meekly and allow it to
Finally, the mandate you received
recently was based, in many
people's minds, on clear statements
that there would not be increased
user fees for health care or further
cuts in elementary and secondary
education. Your immediate breach
of these promises, we feel, shows a
disregard for the democratically expressed wishes of the people who
chose you to form their government. This, also, we cannot sit back
and allow to recur.
We believe these concerns are
shared by our constituents, the
students of UBC.

Let's blast the Ubyssey
In the past I haven't written to
your collective about an off campus
political issue because those letters
always seem to be boring. However,
this is also a 'let's blast The
Ubyssey' letter and they can be fun.
On Sept. 13 I tried to read one of
your articles (Quebec students blue
over bill 32) and quickly fell asleep.
It was probably factual and all but
I'm a very simple thinker and this
article had big words, funny quotes
about civil war and seemed pretty
complicated so I ignored it. A week
later I realized that you were writing
about a piece of Canadian legislation which if duplicated in B.C.
would destroy our Alma Mater

and the graduate society on this
Sounds farfetched and
melodramatic? I'd agree, except
that Quebec's Bill 32 removes the
collection of all student activity fees
until 25 per cent of the society's
members vote for the fees again.
From experience I can tell you that
getting that many people on a campus to vote at one time is almost impossible, especially here at UBC.
So what? It sounds like a great
way to save some bucks. I mean,
who really needs SUB, the aquatic-
centre, Brock Hall, War Memorial
gym- or the winter sports centre. I
hate extramurals, intramurals,
don't mind $2.15 beer, CITR plays
weird music, the Cheeze Pub and
red jackets look funny and the grad
centre is having problems anyway.
Or perhaps I've made a point. All
of the above would not exist if the
B.C. government duplicates what
has already happened in Quebec.
However, your papers article
doesn't even hint that any of the
above could happen right here.
Come on Ubyssey, get your act
together. This is one of the scariest
and most destructive pieces of passed legislation students have seen,
and it wasn't written by chauvinist
South African diamond merchants
who drink 'High Test' and sell Nestle's products to Chile on the side.
This has happened in Canada, is
destroying student activities in
Quebec and could, if stupidity is
contageous, be implemented in
B.C. Don't forget, Ubyssey, that
those student fees cover your
$75,000 a year subsidy as well.

mean you'll be writing nasty articles
about me this year? With thanks

tion, have contradicted what I promised to work for.
Council's decision to join the
Solidarity Coalition was one that
was seriously debated, after analyzing comprehensively the budget,
legislation and structure of the
Coalition. Yates seemed to suggest
that council was not representative
and perhaps a bit radical. I can
assure Yates that the opposite is
true. Council is diverse in the
political views represented, and
pretty middle of the road. But the
Solidarity issue crosses all partisan
" lines. Though the vote was certainly
not unanimous, a Progressive Conservative member of Council spoke
strongly in favor of joining.
Yates seemed to think that
Solidarity is opposed to restraint;
this is not so. The Solidarity Coalition has never issued an official
statement opposing restraint.
Moreover, "restraint" is being used
as an excuse by the present provincial government to slash human
rights, renter rights, get rid of student, staff and faculty representation on the BCIT Board of Governors; among many other things. As
well, the overall budget did not
represent restraint because there
was an overall increase of 12 per
It should also be noted that no
student association in the province
has voted against joining the
Solidarity Coalition. In fact, the
student associations at B.C.'s other
two universities, Simon Fraser and
the University of Victoria, are not
only members of Solidarity, but,
like UBC, are involved in local
coalitions on campus. Yates feels
that student reps should not take
political positions, or join coalitions.
Well, UBC has been a member of
the Defend Education Services
Coalition, through the Canadian
Federation of Students, for a couple of years now. Yates states that
council should be supporting the
government. I would hope that, as a
student who is studying law, Yates
realizes that his position is obviously political.
The majority on council voted to
join with the college and university
faculty, and with many other community groups which represent a
majority of British Columbians.
We joined not only to vocalize student concerns, but also to show that
we were fundamentally opposed to
the fact that many of our
democratic and human rights have
been taken away.
All students will receive the
chance to have your votes recorded
in opposition or in favour of many
of the specific issues that student's
council has voted on. A petition
calling for a special general meeting
of all students has been signed, so
that students can debate and set
policy on many of the budget and
legislative measures that the provincial government has taken.
The general meeting will be held
Thursday, October 13 at 12:30 p.m.
just outside of Sedgewick Library.
Please attend, and in the meantime,
visit the council rep from your constituency and read the analysis of
the legislation and budget, or drop

A larger number of students
should become involved in the
democratic process — all students
should attend on October 13. And

the closing of the rentalsman's office, and other legislation.

Eastside worker gives different perspective
The Ubyssey's Sept. 16 front
page article (Wasted Youth) by Deb
Wilson was impressionistic and well
However, a few sociological insights should be drawn out of the
article. First, labels are sometimes
manipulative (and important). The
community's name is Downtown
Eastside and not 'skid road'.
Downtown Eastside has been the
name for a decade now.
I have never in four and a half
years in this community found the
kind of people who settle into a life
on welfare. No, not one. Some
people who I would think were this
type shocked me when I spotted
them in a Temporary Manpower
Employment Office. Further, many
of the 80 per cent elderly who live in
the area have worked hard most of
their lives contrary to popular
myth. Many have suffered from in
dustrial accidents as loggers, mill
workers, fishermen.
And sure, it may be wise to "keep
away from people who take drugs
and drink", but that applies equally
to SUB UBC, at least when I was
going to UBC.
The people here are not
monsters,   zombies,   animals,   or
computer numbers. They are often
more human than people you find
in other neighborhoods in Vancouver. Yes, they do have a hard
time. They do pay $240 for rent
and $135 a month for food,
clothing, and entertainment.
Yes, big changes are needed. But
is UBC part of this solution or the
problem? Currently, too many
students are class conscious; they
are looking for their public meal
ticket with their degree. They
become the social workers and the
bureaucrats who dominate people's
communities. Planners, architects,
engineers churned out by schools
work on megaprojects like B.C.

Bankrupted or money spinner?
The film Daniel deals with one of the most controversial episodes in American post-war history. It is a fictionalized account of the famous Rosenberg spy trial.
By taking the part of the alledged spies, the film,
quite intentionally, calls into question the integrity of
the American judicial and political system.
The producers of the film have attempted to treat
the subject matter with intelligence, sincerity and that
total absence of humor, that passes for seriousness.
For all Daniel's seriousness, it is difficult to
understand what point it is trying to make, and for
all its earnestness, it is at heart shallow. Daniel gives
new life to the old cliche, politically, emotionally and
intellectually bankrupt.
The film tells two tales simultaneously. The first is
the story of Paul and Rochelle Isaacson, the parents.
The second concerns their two children, Daniel and
Susan in the late sixties, fifteen years after their
parent's deaths by execution. The film switches from
one story to the other.
The audience can tell the parts set in the 40's and
50's from those in the 60's because the former are
sepia tinted and the latter are washed out, shot in
pale, light but drab shades. All the 60's scenes seem
to have been filmed on a wet winter's day in a
Howard Johnson's parking lot. The tones are subtly
changed at the end.
REAL LIFE . . . the Rosenberg children and lawyer
The prison (in real life Sing Sing) where the Isaacson's are held and then executed has all the grim and
truly eveil menace of a Howard Johnson's. While
Daniel, having finally come of age, emerges from his
long cold winter into the warm summer of a central
park Simon and Garfunkle concert masquerading as
a sixties ami-Vietnam demonstrator.
The part of the film that deals with the Isaacson's
trial, for giving atom bomb secrets to Russia, is quite
easily intelligible.
The film takes for granted the audience will
remember the hysterical atmosphere of the early fifties with Joseph McCarthy chasing imaginary communists in the senate and American troops fighting
real ones in Korea.
The explanation offered for the arrest of a radio
repairman and his wife, both minor members of a
tiny communist party is that the Americans had to
justify a foreign policy based on the assumption that
the Russians were technologically inferior and could
be intimidated indefinitely by superior United States
know-how. The point here is well made.
There has to be doubt about the integrity of a
movie which is overtly anti-Hollywood and deeply
serious, but which still prefers to make its points by
acting on one's emotions by portraying the suffering

allied prisoners, ruthless captors
and constant aggression. But surprisingly, the film goes much deeper
and examines the mental aspects of

Japanese soldiers and destroying
war materials.

same POW camp as Lawrence.

This is unfortunate because the
play is an excellent adaptation. Set
to music and spiced with the incredible humour of Twain it fits
neatly into a lunch hour.
The setting is a newly created

Into the primeval paradise pop the

The stage is set for the first male
and female union with all its
modern-style tragedies and ecstasies
which have been subject of
countless other stories, but is
uniquely depicted in this production.
Adam and Eve each philosophize
for the audience's benefit about
each other. Adam wants to be left
alone and wishes Eve would go
away and play with the other
animals and, most importantly,
quit talking.
Eve, while enjoying all the beauty
of the new earth and all the other
animals, wants to talk to someone
else and persists in communicating
which annoys him immensely. It
eventually occurs to him that she is
beautiful and he can resign himself
to her presence. He continues
grumbling all the same about her
persistent habit of naming all the
creatures and things — an occupation assigned to Adam who has no
talent for it.
"She says it looks like a dodo. It
looks no more like a dodo than I
do," he laments. Meanwhile Eve is
wondering just what kind of reptile
he is. She has picked up the habit of
living dangerously with apples
which gives Adam the shivers.
Trouble enters Eden in the
classical personnage of a sultry, sinful snake played by Marlane

long running hit, Talking Dirty.
O'Brien struts around the stage in a
style reminiscent of Mae West, and

can talk and gets Eve off his back.
What follows is the expected fall
from paradise with an interesting

what they are eating he eats a flower
and says "I've tried your manju

time with Sergeant Hara (Takeski).

Blues voices a fine instrument
An idea often neglected in jazz is using the voice as
an instrument. Many jazz vocalists merely sing, leaving the embelishments and improvisations to the instrumentalists.
But a performer currently at the Plazazz in the International Plaza Hotel goes beyond these confining
Betty Carter is probably the jazz vocalist most
capable of using her voice as a fine-tuned instrument.
Her performance Tuesday at the cozy North Vancouver jazz lounge illustrated her ability to blend her
voice with the sounds of the instruments, not to
employ it as a separate element.
For example, Carter uses her voice in the same way
a trumpet player uses an instrument: she sings in both
a low, deeply resonating tone, and in much higher
octaves; she has a unique improvisation sytle that
avoids the stock "bop-doo-wee-didlee-doo" scat
style overused by many vocalists; and she interjects
bizarre twists and turns which make potentially
predictable tunes sound exciting;
The tunes Tight, All The Things You Are, and
What A Little Moonlight Can Do were highlights of
the Tuesday show performed before a tiny crowd.
Throughout her performance, Carter displayed an
unusual energy, using physcial movements to convey
musical and lyrical ideas.
A notable member of her group is pianist Benny
Green, who with his punkish brushcut, looks like he
would be more at home at the Smilin' Buddah. But
he plays with incredible sensitivity alongside Carter.
Shades of the great McCoy Tuner can be heard in his
Ernestine Anderson, the other singer in the
Plazazz double bill, shares many of Carter's unique
She also avoids the typical format used by jazz
singers. She concentrates more on her performance's
lyrical aspects instead of the musical side like Carter.
With this lyrical emphasis, Anderson sounds like a
soulful storyteller.
Behind the story-telling nature of her singing lies
the blues. All jazz musicians must pay their dues by
learning to play the blues — Anderson is a master at it.
The tunes All Blues and Never Make Your Move Too
Soon demonstrate her blues expertise.
BOP-DOO-WEE . . . did-lee-doo.
While the blues implies a melancholic mood, she
maintains a joyous grin throughout the performance.
The audience shares the grin, a sure sign Anderson
has done her job as an entertainer. Page 12

UBC bureaucracy still working
wonderfully well despite restraint
On August 24 I phoned the
registrar's office for probably the
hundredth time to find out if I had
been accepted. I was cheerfully informed by an anonymous voice,
"I'm sorry to tell you this but your
application has been denied." For
any particular reason? "We don't
accept Ontario grade 12."
They'd known since March that I
was applying with a grade 12
diploma from Ontario. They happily accepted my registration fee in
May and then they must have avidly
read my transcript in July only to
tell me in late August that I would
not be accepted.
Their comment was, "I guess the
letter is in the mail."
My comment is unpublishable. I
said, "Thanks," to the voice on the
phone with as much civility as I
could muster. I then waited for the
letter as I could do nothing until
I received the letter August 27. I
then set about making an appeal.
This involved going to the
registrar's office only to be told that
the   admissions  officer  who   had
( freestyle)
refused my application worked at
night. But the kindly folk offered
me an appeals form with a look that
said, "Good luck, honey."
I, of course, did not hold my
breath waiting for a reply. I immediately went to all the other post-
secondary learning institutions to
be told that I had missed (as I expected) all the application
deadlines. In the other universities I
was told there was no room for me.
At Langara, after waiting in the
huge lineup, I could not even get a
single course I wanted.
So I was forced to wait for UBC's

they do grind.
September 6 I phoned the
registrar for the fourth time (you
can't imagine how sick I am of
hearing Greensleeves) and I finally
learned that I had been accepted. I
was told that there would be a
package waiting (and I stress the
word wait) for me at the registrar's

office. What I wasn't told was that
there would be a staggering lineup.
I thought that I was at the end of
my rope. Hours later I received the
magical documents. I need not
describe the ever familiar, chaotic
struggle for courses to anyone who
goes to  UBC.
Finally I took the mysterious, yet
fateful, completed form into the office (after yet another lineup) and
one of the kindly folk there processed it. That person then asked me to
pay late registration fees. I was now
at the end of my patience with

of my life, I explained to them that
I was late because I had to wait for
a reply from their office. We haggled for a while about whether I
should appeal paying the fee when
to my surprise they showed some
humane behaviour and waived the
fee. I was not exhausted.
I then realized that if the administration was so surly what on
earth would my teachers be like?
For the first time at UBC, I was
pleasantly surprised.

Student societies face life or death vote
giving legal recognition to Quebec
student associations is more
dangerous than no law at all, and
may cause "civil war" on some
Quebec campuses, says Quebec's
largest student organization.
Members of the Association Na-
tionale des Etudiantes et Etudiants
du Quebec and other student
groups are protesting the law, and
plan a general student strike Nov.
Bill 32, passed last June, requires student associations seeking
accreditation from the Quebec
government to win a referendum in
which 25 per cent of students vote
Associations which have existed
as a corporation for two years and
which apply by Sept. 21 are exempt.
An appointee of the education
ministry must supervise the referendum and a five person board
representing the other associations
in Quebec must validate the results.
Only accredited associations
would receive guaranteed funding
through a student levy at registration, collected by the administration. Office space and other services
would also be guaranteed.
The law also allows individual
faculties, departments or colleges to
set up their own associations.
ANEQ information secretary
Peter Wheeland said the regulations
could create incredible
bureaucracies at universities if individual departments were accredited.
Also, for a large existing association like at Concordia University,
"it would be just about impossible
to get the 25 per cent turnout required for legitimacy," said
Associations not accredited may
still exist, but may receive student
fees only at the discretion of the administration and are not protected
by other provisions of the law.
Weak associations will lose control to administrations under the
law, said Wheeland.
"It doesn't resolve the problems
of the associations which have
serious money or recognition problems, in fact it makes it worse."
A tradition of co-operation between anglophone institution administrations and associations in
Quebec does not generally exist in
the francophone system. The administration   at   Universite   de

"Once you're accredited, you're
free of administration interference,
but you're open to government interference," said Wheeland. "Wide
discretionary powers are left to the
accreditation agent (to deny or
withdraw accreditation)."
Wheeland said the law can be used as blackmail. "Once you have
defined your rights with a law,
anything that's not in the law isn't a
The education minister has set up
a committee to determine the application of the law. Only two accreditation agents, one for CEGEP's
and one for universities, exist.
Student suspicion over the intent
of the law is compounded by its
timing. The law was first introduced in the National Assembly May
31, after the end of the school year,
and was passed June 23.
A letter issued by ANEQ, one of
Quebec's two provincial student
organizations and representing
about 80 per cent of Quebec
students, says "this will cause a civil
war on the Concordia, Sherbrooke,
and the Universite de Quebec a
Montreal campuses." The other
student association, RAEU
(Regroupement   des   Associations
Etudiantes Universitaires du
Quebec) supports the bill.
ANEQ voted unanimously to reject the bill before it became law,
and mounted a 24 hour daily vigil
before the legislative building while
the bill was discussed.
Besides demanding withdrawal of
the law, ANEQ wants an amendment to the College Act saying the
administration must collect fees for
associations, and de facto recognition given to associations.

Cricket, lovely cricket!
The UBC cricket team's season
drew to a close at Brockton Oval on
September 12 in the Vancouver
Shield final. The Shield is a knockout competition in which teams
from all divisions of the Vancouver
league take part. UBC's defeat by
WesCan was especially interesting
because it was the first time two second division teams had contested
the final.
The UBC first team enjoyed a
season of great success. One league
match is under appeal as a result of
a fight between two players. If the
result stands UBC will be second in
division two and will play next
season in the premier echelon of the
league. Overall they compiled a
12-4 won-lost record and two more
of their games were drawn.
This year's captain Ian Tate said
that his team could have held its
own against any team in the league.
The team had no real stars but

relied on good fielding, and a solid
batting line-up.
The pitch at Spencer field was
well watered and soft and therefore
not at all conducive to fast bowling.
The team's most consistently successful bowler was medium-pace in-
swinger Paul Griffin.
The final game against Wescan
was something of a disappointment
Wescan batted first and used up
their allotted forty overs to compile
a respectable total of 170 runs for
five wickets down. The UBC team
were soon in trouble and struggled
to a total of 118 runs all out.
The UBC team was unusual in
that it was the only Vancouver
league team that could field an entire team of Canadians. The team is
also unusually young in contrast to
many teams in Vancouver made up
of aging expat riots. Tate said that if
the team had been able to field its
best eleven players on a regular
basis it would have been as good as
any in the league.
In addition to success with UBC
several players gained representative honours this summer. Tate
and another batsman Larry Unrau
played for the B.C. provincial team.

Lucky ' Birds drop Dinos
Thanks to a stroke of good fortune and a rapid clock, the
Thunderbird football team beat
Calgary in a Western Intercollegiate
Football League game at Thunderbird Stadium last Friday.
The 22-14 victory was the first of
the 1983 regular season for the
defending champion Thunderbirds
who had lost to Manitoba the
previous weekend.
The 'Birds trailed 3-2 at the end
of the first quarter. But they rallied
to lead 19-3 at the half and 22-3
after three quarters. The strong
wind and the strong arm of Calgary
quarterback Greg Vavra narrowed
the margin in the fourth quarter.
The 'Birds employed the running
attack — or, if you please, the
Glenn Steele arsenal — throughout
the contest while Calgary attacked
through the air. Steele carried the
ball 32 times (So, who are these
guys Peter LeClaire and Kent Bowling?) for 186 yards and one
Jay Gard threw to Rob Ros for
the other UBC major.
The 'Birds 15 point second
quarter resulted from some fine
defensive work and two fumble
recoveries. Mark Norman
recovered the ball after an apparent
incomplete pass which was ruled a
tumble and romped down to the
Calgary six to set up Steele's
touchdown. Laurent Deslauriers
recovered a Tim Petros fumble
after the latter had caught the ball
and then dropped it. Gard threw to
Ross moments later.
Vavra was outstanding as he
completed 21 of 37 attempts for 334
yards and two touchdowns. Vavra
also threw three interceptions. Gard
was good on only eight of 21 attempts for 79 yards. Calgary gained
only 58 yards rushing as opposed to
379 through the air. The 'Birds, on
the other hand ran for 208 of a total
287 yards.
In the fourth quarter, the Dinos
used the strong wind and the strong
arm of Vavra to their advantage.
On the very first play of the period,
Vavra passed to Jeff Pronk for a 63
yard touchdown. On the ensuing
kick-off, Darcy Kopp booted the
ball into the end zone for a single.
The strong Thunderbird defence
held the Dinosaurs at bay for about
11 minutes. Then with less than
three minutes remaining, Vavra
completed just four passes to carry
the Dinos 94 yards and into the end
The Thunderbirds could not sustain an attack and were forced to
punt after the Calgary score, setting
the stage for a dramatic finish. The
Dinos pressed to near midfield as
Vavra called his plays on the line of
scrimmage. It appeared that
Calgary might just pull out a win.
However, facing a third and fifteen
situation, Vavra threw to clutch
receiver Josh Borger only to see the
ball bounce off the receiver's chest.
Then, UBC just ran out the clock.
Coach Frank Smith was once
again disappointed with his team's
performance; he felt that some of
his players were not putting out.
Meanwhile, Glenn Steele said that
UBC had better develop its passing
game because opponents were just
keying on him. And, of course, one
man does not a football team make.
Speaking on CITR at half-time,
B.C. Lions' player development coordinator Bill Quinter said that his
team was seriously considering
making Laurent Deslauriers a 1984
territorial protection.
Steele is moving in on the UBC
all-time rushing record. His
touchdown Friday came on the
ground, thus eclipsing the previous
record of 26 held by all-time leading
UBC soccer ready
and on the road
The UBC men's soccer team has
finished its pre-season series against
Simon Fraser and is now ready to
start serious action on the road this
weekend. They play the Alberta
Golden Bears in Edmonton on Friday and then the Saskatchewan
Huskies on Saturday.
In the Diachem Bowl at UBC two
weeks ago the 'Birds scored an
upset 1-0 victory over the
Clansmen. The Clan took their
revenge the following Wednesday at
The Clan's only goal came in the
19th minute when striker Daryl Larson pounced alertly on a pass from
mid-fielder Tony Penzato and
volleyed a shot past 'Birds netminder Bun Pavan.
The first half was not distinguished by any classic soccer. Neither
team created any clear scoring opportunities. The Clan's goal was the
product of the only sustained
pressure of the half. The 'Birds
played their best soccer of the series
during that period. The Clan seized
control in the second half but they
did not take advantage of their
In the end UBC almost managed
to snatch a tie as Carl Atterton
pounced on a Clan defensive lapse.
With only the goalkeeper to beat,
Atterton hit a low shot which Jerry
Vick in the SFU net somehow
managed to save.
UBC coach Joe Johnson said he
was  disappointed  with   some  in
dividual performances against SFU,
but that, after all, was the purpose
of the series. Now he has a much
clearer idea of who will be in his sixteen man squad.
Johnson said that he is optimistic
about UBC's chances in the coming
season. Some of last year's outstanding players have returned and
some talented newcomers have arrived.
Amonst the veterans are
defenders AI Lada and AI Sigurd-
son, two of last year's outstanding
'Birds. They will be playing
alongside two rookies. There will
also be a couple of rookies in the attack.
Coach Johnson sayd that Frank
Iule and Sean McGlaughlin are the
probable starting wingers with Joel
Johnson moving into the middle to
make room for them.
The one area in which the team
remains unchanged is in mid-field,
last year's weak area.
Maybe the added year and previous experience playing together
will help this year's putative starting
trio, which includes Jonathan Parry
and Kevin Head, and maybe the
new strikers can offer them more
passing options.
Coach Johnson believes that this
year the team will be tighter in
defense and more offensively minded. However much they want to attack, the question that remains to
be answered is whether they can.
Last year's team was pretty
hopeless going forward. Maybe this
year's team will be more imaginative and productive.
rusher, Gord Penn. Steele now has
a career rushing total of 3,029
yards. With three years of collegiate
eligibility remaining — this year included — Steele is destined to break
Penn's total of 3,959 yards.
The   Thunderbirds   host   the
University of Alberta tonight at
7:30. Both teams have identical 1-1
records. Alberta also evened their
mark with a victory last weekend.
The 'Bears upset Manitoba.
The Thunderbirds felled the
'Bears 32-4 and 25-22 last season.
The winner of tonight's contest will
gain sole possession of second place
behind the undefeated Saskatchewan Huskies. The Huskies are
currently ranked number one in
Canada while Alberta is sixth and
UBC is seventh.

broadcast tonight's game live beginning at 7:15 p.m.

Rift divides unions
HALIFAX (CUP) — University
football teams in Atlantic Canada
have been eliminated from the national play-offs — even before the
season's opening kick-off.
The Atlantic teams are ineligible
for post-season play due to a
dispute between the regional
athletic association and the Canadian Interuniversity Athletic Union
— the national collegiate sporting
At a general meeting in June
1982, the CIAU decided to rotate
the preliminary round of football
play-offs leading to a national
championship between the four
conferences in the Canadian college
football league.
For the Atlantic conference this
would mean that the semi-finals
would be played away from Halifax
— home of the Atlantic Bowl —
one of every two years.
Ken Bellemare, president of the
Atlantic   Universities   Athletic
The UBC women's soccer team
saw intercollegiate action for the
first time last Sunday morning.
They tied 1-1 with the University of
Portland at Simpson field at UBC
in exhibition play.
Both goals came early on. Kelly
Robinson was on target for the
'Birds in the tenth minute. Ten
minutes later Portland scored the
Portland had a late chance to win
when they were awarded a penalty
three minutes before the end but the
UBC goalkeeper saved the spot
Coach Fales said "the game was
a crucial one for most of the people
trying out because game situations
Association says that moving the
Atlantic Bowl would be too costly
for the teams in the region.
"Rotation sounds good on
paper, but at times the financial
situation will dictate against that,"
he said.
Bellemare said that if one of the
Atlantic teams won the semi-finals
in a city like Toronto, they would
have to stay there for an additional
week to wait for the Vanier Cup
(the national) final. This could cost
a team — even with CIAU subsidies
— up to $30,000 he claims.
Bellemare also said that loss of
academic time to the players would
be harmful.
The AUAA will not participate in
the national play-offs this year —
the first year the Atlantic Bowl was
scheduled to be played on the road.
Throughout the region, players,
coaches, and athletic directors have
expressed anger and frustration
over the dispute. Acadia University
usually tell the tale."
Fales sent on his first eleven for
most of the opening half. They controlled the play and forced the
Portland goalie to make several
saves which were brilliant, said
UBC continues to prepare for its
first ever Canadian intervarsity
athletic union campaign and for
Vancouver league action.
players have threatened to sue the
CIAU and the AUAA.
They say their athletic career opportunities will be hindered without
access to the play-offs. The players
do support the AUAA stance that
the Atlantic Bowl should remain in
Acadia claims to have lost six
players as a result of the dispute.
At Mount Allison University,
athletic director Leon Abbott said it
was "probably quite accurate to say
we lost two or three kids who would
have been here otherwise."
CIAU marketing director, John
McConachie, said moving the semifinals around the country gives
other regions a chance to promote
football locally.
Because of the absence of the
Atlantic conference in the national
play-offs, McConachie says they
"are going to have some problems
with the marketing and promotion of the (Vanier Cup) game."
Among the sports we forgot in
last week's round-up of all the
sports on campus was water polo.
The men's team, under last year's
women's coach Michel Roy is
preparing for another venture into
competition with teams from the
American Pacific Northwest
First action is over the second
weekend of October when the
men's team travels down to Cor-
valis in Oregon for a tournament.
In addition to competition outside the university the club is also
trying to set up a recreational league
between teams made up of UBC
students. The league would run during team practice times. The team
will also welcome strong swimming
enthusiastic newcomers to their
practices at 5 p.m. on Saturdays
and Sundays and at 10 p.m. on
