A SMALL STEP for a centipede, but a hell of a climb for Long John Silver and his wooden leg. You can spend a
lot of time staring at this stairway to heaven, but all that will happen is that it will eventually rail you. Actually, this
photograph is part of an advertising campaign for an escalator company that doubles as a replacement for ink blot
tests. What do you see? A horse and a camel doing what?
Lougheed pushes unity petition
Special to The Ubyssey
A pro-federalist organizer hopes
the support of Alberta's premier
and three utility companies will attract Albertans to sign a national
unity petition.
Jean Forest, campaign chair and
University of Alberta chancellor,
says she is optimistic more Albertans will sign the petition, which is
currently circulating in English-
speaking Canada.
"Provided we can get enough
publicity, I'm convinced we will get
a good response," she said.
A campaign with the slogan Put
Yourself on the Line will kick off
this month in an effort to gain more
signatures for the People to People
Petition for Canadian Unity.
Premier Lougheed has endorsed the
petition and declared a "Unity
Week" in Alberta in February.
Forest said although Quebecers
have the right to determine their
own future, it is important they
understand that "quite ordinary
people" in the rest of Canada want
them to stay in confederation.
"I'm not so naive as to think it
(the petition) will  make the dif
ference, but we hope it will be one
more factor weighed in the decision
of Quebecers."
The petition asks Quebec
members of "our Canadian family
to remain Canadian and to continue building with us this magnificent Canada."
Only 12,000 Albertans have signed the petition out of 750,000
signatures collected nationally.
Forest blames the small figure on
the petition campaign's late start in
the province.
"I think it is important for ordinary citizens of Alberta to think
about unity even if they do not sign
the petition."
Alberta's three largest utility
companies will be sending out mini-
petitions with their monthly bill to
about 500,000 households. Other
copies will be distributed to public
organizations, including post-
secondary institutions.
(In B.C., the petition was printed
and distributed by B.C. Hydro with
their November-December bill.)
The date for presentation of the
petition has not been settled, but
will   be   some   time   during   the
referendum campaign. Besides
regular media coverage, people
from all provinces and territories
will promote the petition in public
meetings throughout Quebec.
To finance the project,
organizers are soliciting donations
from   private   individuals.

The left hand of the Alma Mater
Society finally discovereeLWednes-
day what the right hand was up to.
The student representative
assembly spent more than an hour
debating whether to allocate
$10,000 to CITR radio, and it was
not until the meeting was over the
members discovered the student administration commission had
already awarded the money early in
December.
"Why do we have motions before
us to spend $10,000 when the
money's already been spent?"
physical education representative
Yves Fricot asked Alma Mater
Society president Brian Short after
the meeting.
Short and SRA secretary-
treasurer Glenn Wong both denied
they knew the money had been
spent.
The expenditure for new equipment for the radio station was approved at a Dec. 3 meeting of SAC
but a week later the administrative
body asked SRA to hold a referendum to approve the funding. But
according to CITR president Greg
Plant the money was spent before
the Dec. 10 meeting.
Plant also said it wasn't possible
Short and Wong did not know
about the expenditure. "I can't
believe that, it's not possible. I
don't believe it," he said.
The AMS constitution requires a
referendum be held for capital expenditures of more than $5,000, but
AMS finance director Len Clarke
said the CITR allocation came
under the SUB repairs and replacement fund. Clarke said the $10,000
referred to in the SAC motion of
Dec. 10 was for further expansion
of the station, but Plant denied this.
"Len Clarke should know we're
not asking for another $10,000," he
said.
SRA member Meral Aydin accused SAC chairman Don Tolson of
misleading the assembly by not
pointing out the money had been
spent. "Tolson deliberately misinformed this assembly," Aydin said.
In other action, SRA established
a task force to investigate the future
direction of CITR. The original
motion included The Ubyssey in the
committee's mandate, but the paper
was dropped after several representatives said such a task force would
interfere with the editorial freedom
of the paper.
"I want to point out there is a
fine line between 'determining the
role' and censorship," said law
representative Arlene Francis.
A motion to have the annual
Ubyssey subsidy taken to referendum was dropped when no mover
or seconder could be found.
Administration
denies Iranians
UBC admission
By JULIE WHEELWRIGHT
Iranian students in the U.S. are
looking to Canada for academic
refuge as their situation becomes
more uncomfortable.
During the past month UBC
received more than 100 registration
inquiries from Iranian students in
the U.S., according to registrar Ken
Young.
But undergraduate students from
the U.S. with student visas are barred from attending UBC due to a
regulation in the university calendar, he said.
"We told them (the Iranian
students) what the policy is and they
should inquire at other Canadian
institutions," he said.
Young said when foreign
students are enjoying the hospitality
of a university, UBC is not interested in "undercutting that institution or stealing those
students."
The regulation is also designed to
prevent foreign students from obtaining their visa from a "fly-by-
night" university without taking an
English language admission exam,
he added.
There has been no review of the
Iranians try U of A
EDMONTON (CUP) — Increasing numbers of Iranian students are
inquiring about registration at the
University of Alberta.
"The total is now up to about
388," said assistant registrar Doug
Burns."Prior to this I doubt if we
had more than 30 or 40 inquiries per
year."
About 50 per cent of the inquiries
come directly from Iran, with the
rest coming from the U.S. and
other countries.
"The students are mainly interested in professional fields and
graduate work," said Burns. "Because most of these fields have
quotas the chances of being selected
are remote.
"I would be surprised if more
than half a dozen were admitted,"
he added.
There are currently 14 students,
seven of them in graduate studies,
of Iranian origin at the university.
And one Iranian student has been
admitted to begin a program this
January.
"It's possible those students that
meet the English language requirement may be admitted in September," said Burns. "But the great
bulk of enquiries will not materialize into applications."
He also pointed out that the number of requests have levelled off
somewhat, and said he expects the
rush is over.
rule in light of the political situation
of the Iranian students, he said.
"Nobody has even suggested they
reconsider this regulation."
But irate people have telephoned
the registrar asking that no regulations be bent to let any more Iranian students into UBC, Young said.
Columbia College principal
Lome Kavic said there have been
instances where individuals have offered accommodation to students
and specified they would not accept
Iranians.
"There are many individuals who
confuse overseas students with
those holding the (American) embassy in Iran. The students getting
out are the ones who don't want to
get involved," said Kavic.
Columbia College has about 20
Iranian students enrolled this
semester and has received a large increase in inquiries about registration from students trying to leave
Iran.
"Our information from Iran is
that there's a virtual stampede to
get out of the country. But very few
Iranians would be able to study in
Canada because of their lack of
English," he said.
Kavic said he's received many letters from concerned parents and
relatives who want to get their
children out. of Iran "before the
doors close behind them."
He added the conditions for Iranian students have become worse
under the Khomeini regime with
women segregated from classes, discontinuation of English lessons and
growing political tension.
But Erich Vogt, UBC faculty and
student affairs vice-president, said
he doubts the calendar regulation
will be waived for the Iranian students from the U.S.
"I would be surprised if the senate admissions committee would
pay any attention to that at all.
There hasn't been a real flood of inquiries," he said.
There are currently nine Iranian
students studying at UBC. Page 2

Erection campaign boffo
Fear and loathing in '80
"Make the rich pay!'
Perhaps a trifle simplistic as an
election slogan but definitely different from the campaign promises
of the other Canadian parties.
The slogan, to those unfamiliar
with ultra-left politics, is the
trademark of the Communist Party
of Canada (Marxist-Leninist) and
the man behind it explains the
theory behind it and more in an interview with The Ubyssey to be
published next week.
Comrade Hardial Bains, president of the CPC(M-L), explains
that "only by making the rich pay
will students be guaranteed education and jobs." Among other
statements Bains said that:
• "We (the CPC(M-L)) do
stand for violent revolution."
• "The Rhinoceros Party is a
party of the rich, loved by the commercial press and the dregs of society."
• Two rival Marxist-Leninist
groups, the Workers' Communist
Party and In Struggle, are funded
by the RCMP.
• "We are very much in with the
Albanians," in supporting that
country's Marxist-Leninist party
and government.
• The CPC(M-L) will field 181
candidates in the Feb. 18 election,
up 37 from last year's contest.
• The number of members in the
party cannot be released "for
security reasons" and the party's
financial strength is
"unimportant".
In the interview Bains leveled
strong criticism at both the commercial media and the student press
for their inaccurate and infrequent
coverage of Canada^ only "true"
Marxist-Leninist party.
The Ubyssey plans a comprehensive look at the federal election,
from the pseudo-anarchistic Rhinos
to the slightly less silly Progressive
Conservative, Liberal and New
Democrat parties.
Young in
as registrar
UBC's new registrar is Ken
Young, 41, former associate registrar under Jack Parnall.
Young assumed the position Jan.
1 following Parnall's retirement. He
said one of his major concerns
would be the regulation of procedures dealing with part-time
students.
"One-quarter of the university's
winter session population is made
up of part-time students and we're
just as concerned about them as we
are about other students," Young
said.

Research park sparks petition
Student and public opposition to
UBC's proposed 58-acre research
park is growing.
The Alma Mater Society research
park committee is currently planning a series of public meetings for
the end of January and will meet
with off-campus groups Monday to
organize community opposition to
the park.
And the committee plans to circulate a petition demanding full
public hearings on the issue.
"We're going to be putting more
pressure on (universities minister)
Pat McGeer and the UBC board of
governors to inform the public of
what's going on," said committee
spokesman Marty Lund.
Lund said the Monday meeting
will include representatives from
the University Endowment Lands
regional parks committee, the Save
our Parkland committee, the Society for Pollution and Environmental Control and some UBC faculty
members.
"It's an organizing meeting to
form a broad-based committee," he
said.
UBC administration vice-president Erich Vogt said he realizes
members of the community are concerned about events at the university, but added he has not received
any specific complaints about plans
for the park. He said he was not
aware of the organizational meeting
to oppose the park.
But Lund charged that the UBC
administration and board of governors have ignored the concerns of
the AMS committee. "We were upset about the response of the board
of governors. They've refused pub
lic hearings, but it (the issue) has
had so little media coverage not
many people have heard about it."
Despite the board's refusal to
hold public hearings, Lund will
meet Friday with administration
president Doug Kenny to plan a series of public information meetings
for the last two weeks of January.
Lund said the meetings will be held
both on- and off-campus and will
be open to concerned community
members.
He said the meeting would be organized in a style similar to the public forum held at UBC last month
and could include a panel consisting
of McGeer, park planner Don Larsen, Kenny and members of the research park committee.
The committee's petition will demand full public hearings into the
proposed development of the
58-acre park, a moratorium on all
park lease negotiations until those
hearings have been completed and
guarantees for the establishment of
a representative body to administrate the park.
The committee will present the
board with the petition when it has
finished circulating, said Lund. He
said the committee has already written to the UBC board of governors
outlining their concerns.
Lund said the committee's concerns include health and safety regulations; potential park occupants;
lack of public discussion in the
park's planning; the possibility of
nuclear or genetic research in the
park; and the stipulations of agreements between the park's occupants
and the university.

all, a little seriousness never hurt anyone.
Women survey UBC safety
Do women feel safe at UBC?
That's what the coalition for a
safe campus wants to find out and
they are urging UBC women to report all incidences of sexual assault
or harassment.
And the coalition intends to conduct a survey of UBC women to
pinpoint danger areas on campus,
coalition spokeswoman Lynda
Erickson said Wednesday. "We feel
that areas of the campus are not
safe for women and we want to
know about them.
"Based on the data we collect
we'llmake recommendations to the
UBC administration about how
safety on campus could be improved. I'm sure they're as concerned
about safety on campus as we are."
Erickson said the coalition hopes
to initiate the survey by asking
questions through The Ubyssey.
The information collected in the
survey will be combined with information the coalition has accumulated from confidential reports of sexual assaults and harassment, she
said.
Erickson said the coalition was
formed six months ago to investigate the safety of women on campus. "So far we haven't got very far
at all," she said. "But we have produced a pamphlet and helped ar-

SFU 18 will appeal
probation sentence
Students and trade unionists arrested at a Simon Fraser University
picket last spring will appeal a
judicial decision giving a year's probation to one demonstrator, a
union organizer said Wednesday.
The conviction is an attempt to
set a predendent regarding the right
to strike, said Joan Meister, a
spokeswoman for the Association
of University and College
Employees Local 2.
"Anybody on a picket line will
now be subject to arrest for blocking a roadway," Meister said.
SFU student Judy Cavanagh was
released on a year's probation Tues
day for her part in a picket line set
up at SFU last spring.
Meister said she was not optimistic about the fate of the remaining defendants after
Cavanagh's conviction.
Eight of the accused have not yet
stood trial. Charges against the
other nine were either dropped or
stayed.
More than 40 supporters turned
out yesterday at a rally outside the
Burnaby provincial court house to
protest the court's decision. A
benefit will be held Jan. 18 at
Fishermen's Hall in support of the
protestors.

Yolks eggcite UBC prof
By PETER MENYASZ
Which came first — the chicken or the egg?
Scientists have not yet discovered an answer for the
age-old riddle, but a UBC researcher has hatched
some interesting information about eggs.
And he's not too chicken to admit that eating eggs
might not be as harmful as is currently believed. The
cholesterol in eggs has been linked to an increased
risk of heart disease.
"That's been the big drawback and complaint over
thepast 10 to 15 years," UBC poultry sciences chairman Darrell Bragg said Wednesday. And because of
this belief, people have avoided eating eggs, a valuable source of protein and nutrition, he said. "The
egg is one of the best natural foods available."
Preliminary research results indicate that egg cholesterol is less likely to stay in the body and cause
harm than cholesterol from other sources, Bragg
said. "We found that egg cholesterol is retained
much more poorly than pure fat cholesterol. We're
seeing less than 50 per cent retention in the animal
model."
Bragg added that nearly 100 per cent of cholesterol
from foods such as butter is retained by the body,
thus contributing to the incidence of heart disease.
But Bragg pointed out that the original aim of his
research was to lower the cholesterol content of the
eggs. He said the idea was to alter the eggs' cholesterol levels by changing the hens' diets. "We were able
to see different concentrations in the bloodstream
with different kinds of diet regime," Bragg said.
But the great variations in the eggs of different
hens precluded any overall, commercially viable
method of lowering their cholesterol levels, said
Bragg.
To avoid getting egg on their faces, Bragg and his
researchers changed their plan of attack. "We decided we would go one step further and look at the utilization of steroids (cholesterol) from the egg yolk."
It's not difficult to unscramble Bragg's message —
the eggs that form the basis of many people's breakfasts won't push them toward heart disease.
And that's no yolk. Page 4

Iranians lose
It looks like Iranian students who want to escape harassment in
Iran or the U.S. can't expect any sympathy from UBC's administration.
But that's not surprising. Every time the phrase "foreign
student" pops up, the administration starts making the-answers-
are-all-in-the-rules noises.
It's not that they're worried that the Iranian students might turn
out to be troublemakers and cause the university a lot of embarrassment. And it's not that they wouldn't like to get their hands on
the money accepting Iranian students would add to UBC's coffers.
There's only one thing that counts.
Politics.
And when you see politics applied to a university, read public
opinion. Accepting Iranian students might not prove to be a
popular move with some members of the public. After all, UBC's
registrar has already received calls asking him not to accept any
more Iranian students.
And some people offering housing assistance to Columbia College students have specified that they won't accept Iranians.
So universities buckle under to public pressure and close the
door in the students' faces. Because if they accepted the Iranian
students, some small-minded taxpayers would cry "foul."
Those narrow-minded people who see the "yellow invasion"
around us and who see Communists under every bed can't bear the
thought of foreign students depriving their children of an education. Of course that isn't the case, but you can't talk to closed
minds.
So we won't be seeing any more Iranian students at UBC.
They'll just have to find institutions of higher learning that aren't as
afraid of public opinion and the possibility of reduced funding.
They'll have to find open-minded institutions that care.

It was s calm snowy day in the socialist paradise of Ubania when suddenly out of the dark reaches
came unrepentant petty bourgeois opportunist Bill Tieleman spouting his pseudo lefto righto Cuptalk.
"You're not a true upholder of Menyaszism," cried an hysterical yet somehow ideologically pure Julie
Wheelwright. "Death to the running-dog scum," politburo members Glen Sanford, Gary Brookfield
and Kevin Finnegan chanted in unison. Steve McClure and Geof Wheelwright, recently purged leaders
of the deviationist anarchistic tendency associated with the dread Gang of Pooftas, suggested that incineration was too good for Tieleman. Tom Hawthorn and Heather Conn, head bureaucrats after a
long self-criticism session, condemned the CUP donkey to a long re-education course at the Chevron

AMS a squalid mess that ignores our interests
By BILL TIELEF1AN
Inane, juvenile and a complete
waste of students' money.
That's the only way to describe
arts news, the arts undergraduate
society publication which marks yet
another step down in the credibility
of UBC's alleged "student
leaders".
Some people thought the total ir
relevance of UBC's student politicians had hit rock bottom after
more than a year of collective navel-
gazing on the new constitution that
somehow passed in December with
all the grace of an Albanian election
and after the Moonie-like takeover
of the top Alma Mater Society positions by Lifespring.
But no.
Bob Staley, the man who
dignified Pierre Trudeau's last visit
to UBC (and mortified fellow
members of the campus NDP club)
by repeatedly shouting "Where's
Maggie?" has now proven he truly
is a UBC student politico by bringing arts news to the masses.
Staley, and fellow editor Paul
Yaskowich, unless they are incredibly subtle masters of the grand
farce disguised as immature imbeciles, have now replaced the non-
elected petty bureaucrats of the stu
dent administrative commission as
campus clowns.
Take for example an article in
arts news on engineering students.
Along with an amateur drawing of
a "typical gear" which points out
various insulting attributes such as
location of brain in the feet, comes
the following example of brilliant
wit: "By and large, avoidance of
gears will prevent stunted intelligence, reduce vomiting and according to one medic prof, may be a
cure for the common cold."
Hilarious.
The other content is of roughly
the same intellectual calibre. And
the cost of printing the four-page
tabloid was a mere $179.
The whole episode might be considered mildly amusing if Staley and
company were some misguided
band of mental misfits taking a
quick trip to nowhere.
But they're not. Instead they're
supposedly UBC's best and
brightest, the student leaders of today, the country's leaders of tomorrow (shudder!). Staley is one of the
frontrunners in the election for student board of governors members.
How much respect can Staley expect from the big business barons
who run the board or the university
administration when he brings up
student concerns?
But it's not fair to pick on Bob
alone. He's simply a sign of the
times.
Only five years ago student
muckraker Svend Robinson was
elected to the board. Now Robinson is NDP MP for Burnaby.
Robinson was typical of the type of
progressive student leaders in the
AMS. They had their faults but at
least they commanded some
modicum of respect — from both
students and the board.
This year has seen mediocrity
become the key component of student leadership. Student board of
governors members Glenn Wong
and Bruce Armstrong have elevated
whimpering in public to the level of
a fine art when it comes to representing student interests. They and the
rest of the AMS are still twiddling
their thumbs despite the introduction at UBC of the most regressive
measure yet to limit accessibility to
post-secondary education — the
direct indexing of tuition fees to the
university's operating budget.
This year's AMS apparently is
more concerned with "stimulating
personal growth" through Lifespring programs or endearing
themselves to the UBC alumni
association than to fighting for student issues.
The typical student politician's
reaction to all this is to claim that if
students knew what "their" AMS
was doing they would get involved.
Those less subtle usually blame The
Ubyssey.
Unfortunately for the hacks, the
students do know what's going on
— that's why the AMS is in such
trouble. They know that the AMS
has become totally self-indulgent
over the past few years, especially
regarding the Holy Grail of most
UBC student politicians, the constitution. They know that with few
exceptions the AMS is not providing proper services for students
— how many universities or colleges in Canada that have isolated
campuses such as UBC's have a bar
that seats 35?
perspectives
What ever happened to our anti-
calendar, our speakers' program,
our new bar, our fight against cutbacks to education funding, our opposition to tuition fee increases that
only made UBC more elitist and inaccessible than it already is?
In other words what ever happened to our AMS?
I have a few ideas. Somewhere
down the line a few students got
tired of hearing about a lousy constitution. That's why only 23 of

THE    UBYSSEY

A groovy and orgasmic amusement park?
Perhaps I'm more easily
distracted than other people on this
campus, but I just can't help noticing that there is something curious
"happening in Iran, something very
obviously horrible taking place in
Cambodia, and almost nothing at
all in The Ubyssey.
I understand an application for
work in a health food store was
turned down for some stupid,
childish  reasons  some  time  ago.
Lifespring 'sick game'
I am writing to you latently in
regard to the articles in your
Nov. 22, 1979, issue concerning
Lifespring influences on some
members of AMS.
I too have known someone
who came in contact with
Lifespring. Her co-workers were
becoming infected with it; she
chose not to. Consequently, for
Linda, things became very difficult at work. Lifespring was
like a sick child's game where the
odd man out, for whatever
reason — non-conformity, skin
color, etc., was skinned to the
quick, or sort-of ganged up on
by the Lifespring cronies. They
wanted everyone in that depart
ment to be a Lifespring mentor..
It was conform or we will show
you no mercy. That is the impression I got. The pressure
from these "Lifespringites"
caused things to come to a
psychological head for Linda
and she ended up trying to commit suicide.
Now, this is an extreme case
of someone who had other
psychological troubles, but . . .
Lifespring sounds pretty sick to
me.
Therefore, I was glad to read
what you printed in your paper
about Lifespring. Keep up the
good work.
Thank you.

'Don't support Iranians9
If the letter by Theodore Baracos
(Tues. edition) was a joke, it was
written in very poor taste. I found
the opinions expressed so senseless
and disgusting that I must take issue
against them.
By condoning the hostage-taking
incident in Iran you are supporting
the cause of terrorism and the fall
of diplomacy throughout the world.
If the so-called sacrifices of your
Iranian bretheran (sic) fill you with
awe then I know what you're full
of, and it's not roses. Are you still
with me Theodore?
Your sick and pathetic attempt at
advising our student association to
forego reasonable student protest in
favor of terrorist attacks shows that
the perversion of your ideas is complete.
It is fools such as yourself who
fail to realize that the issue in Iran
should not be the return of an aging
monarch dying of cancer, but is in
fact the very real threat of Soviet
Editorial control
is a red herring
Once again the issue of editorial
control arises. I saw nowhere in the
article a move suggesting editorial
control. What was at issue was the
concept of the students paying for a
newspaper they, did not necessarily
want. No one has suggested that
The Ubyssey should be controlled
in any way, just that the manner in
which it is financed should be
reviewed.
The article should have dealt with
this issue instead of throwing out
the red herring of editorial control.
The Ubyssey has more editorial
control than the Vancouver Sun in
that influence does not filter down
from the publisher. The only cases
wnere any restraint has been suggested in the past few years has been
when libel was a concern.
I note with interest that the two
people quoted on an issue in which
they are not directly concerned (in
this case The Ubyssey and student
administrative commission) are
once again Valgeet Johl and Bob
Staley (who I also note with interest
are running for board of governors
positions). Is a vote for either of
them in the upcoming election also
a vote for The Ubyssey?

aggression. One only needs to
observe the situation in
Afghanistan to see this plan in action. If Iranians would only accept
their mistake, there is still time to
prevent another bloodbath.
I'd like to ask you a question,
Theodore. How would you have enjoyed this past Christmas if it was
-your family in that embassy?

That's really unfortunate but there
seems to be a substantial number of
more serious threats hovering about
the planet. I suspect that if it was
possible to gain a world view at the
moment, questions regarding the
sexual identity of our sleeping partners would not be among the most
pressing.
How is it possible to lose touch
with the rest of the world while
keeping up with the news in a campus paper at a university of 25,000
people?

Give up your bus seat
Attention UBC students. When someone boards the bus to go
downtown and unfortunately is on crutches PLEASE give that person a
seat!
On Nov. 291 (a senior citizen) boarded the bus at Acadia and University Blvd. At that time (noon) a man on crutches and a woman with a
youngster also boarded the bus. We were all allowed to stand! One
bench at the front is reserved for elderly and crippled. Is it you cannot
read or is it you just don't care?
I am used to standing — the few times I have been given a seat these
past 12 years could be counted on one hand. To have someone on crutches stand, upset me. University students are so fortunate — how about
showing a little appreciation or is that just too much to ask?

them, and most of them student
hacks, showed up for a general
meeting on the topic. A few more
got fed up with watching earnest
student candidates mouth rhetoric
about supporting their interests
before the election and buying
three-piece suits to fit in with the J.
V. Clyne crowd after the election.
Some other students were involved in a club or campus organization. They had to get a room or
something else through the student
administrative commission. They
discovered that it's easier to get a
camel through the eye of a needle
than to get a booking through the
mindpolice bureaucrats of SAC.
Some students just aren't here
anymore. They couldn't get a job in
the summer or afford the high costs
of education in the winter.
Altogether these students are in
the overwhelming majority. They
do not vote in AMS elections or
participate in AMS events. If someone were to introduce a referendum making AMS fees refundable
upon request, they would let the
AMS dry up and blow away.
And their numbers can only grow
as the incompetence of the student
politicians grows and flourishes.

Liturgical Art on Display
In 1976 trie Catholic Conference of Bishops commissioned several Canadian artists to create pieces of liturgical art. Artists from across Canadarand particularly from the Indian and Inuit cultures, have produced
works which reflect the Christian tradition within their
own cultures. Tony Hunt, John Korner, and Lloyd Wad-
hams are three of the British Columbia artists who
have made contributions to this collection. The Collection will be available for viewing each weekday from
January 21 to February 1 in the SUB Art Gallery. The
gallery will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and some
