New BoG pick
by Sophia Harris
UBC graduate and fitness
guru Barbara Crompton has been
appointedto the University's Board
of Governors replacing Bob Lee.
Included in Crompton's long
list of achievements is a B.Ed in
1972, the 1972 Maxwell A.
Camerson Award for high grades
and exceptional teaching skills,
and a 1990 UBC Alumni Award for
achieving a high level of personal
and professional success.
Crompton's biggest success is
The Fitness Group, which she established in 1975. Her fast growing and extremely prosperous
business has caused people to label her everythingfrom a successful
entrepreneur to the "aerobics
When asked if she felt another
female on the BoG showed progress
for career-oriented women,
Crompton said, "I think it's a great
thing when women are involved in
upper management positions.
Opportunities for women have
been much less in the past."
Crompton said she has never
encountered any discrimination in
her climb to the top. Thus she's
"not hung up in woman's lib.," and
said "being a woman has actually
benefitted (her)."
Crompton also said because
she performs well, she has experienced no problems succeeding as a
woman in the work force.
"Woman are given many opportunities these days. They should
just do it [their jobs] without worrying whether they're discriminated against or not," she said.
"Just present yourself. It doesn't
matter if you're male or female as
long as you can do it. If you do,
youll succeed.
"Men are uncomfortable with
women because there haven't been
as many working women in the
past, but once you show that you're
familiar with your material, there
won't be a problem."
Crompton is the newest
member ofthe BoG ofa university
that has sat idle despite recurring
incidents of sexism on its campus.
Current AMS president has been
accused of writing sexist literature
in the Province newspaper, Lady
Godiva didn't stop riding until just
last year, and the UBC Engineers
have repeatedly printed sexist
material in their nEUSlettre.
Furthermore, no woman has
ever held the position of UBC
President, and only 13.8% of the
tenured faculty at UBC are female.
Coordinator of the Women's
Centre, Linda Shout, said Crompton is asking women to ignore dis-
The first balloon tossed: The Arts vs. Engineering year begins.
"She's ignoring all the problems. I know plenty of women who
encounter a great deal of sexual
harassment on the job," Shout said.
"They say that it doesn't matter
how well you know your material
sometimes; sexual discrimination
still exists."
Shout added, "it's not true that
ifyou know your stuff, you can just
"do it.' Crompton is spreading one
of the myths you frequently hear
from one or two successful women
you see. We have to be careful.
Don't just say, "wonderful, there's
another woman on the BoG.' We
have to look at what her issues are
Although she worked as a
substitute   teacher   after   she
graduated from UBC, Crompton
soon turned her energy towards
big business.
As the Globe and Mail explained, 'a teacher by training,
Mrs. Crompton found schools to be
too restrictive for her vision of fitness for all. The result was the
Executive Fitness Group Inc., a
company founded in 1978 with
capital from [Crompton's] developer husband, Sven Kraumains."
When asked about her future
plans in her new position, Crompton said, "I don't really think it
would be right for me to tell you
until I understand the set-up. Talk
to me in about a year."
BoG members only serve three
year terms at a time.
Crompton's business is  de-
manding of her time. In 1986, the
Vancouver Courier described her
work load as follows:
"She is up each morning at the
crack of dawn to run a business
which sees 5,000 clients per week
and employs some 40 staff. She
consistently works 12-hour days, 7
days a week."
Woman to Woman magazine explained how Crompton copes with her
demanding schedule. "After meeting
the demands of a growing business
to energize by having a facial than by
Crompton said she is excited
about the prospects of her new job.
"I hope that I can contribute to
UBC what it gave to me. I want to
see UBC prosper," Crompton said.

Court proceedings to follow...
by Anita Misri
Students are worried they are
being used as pawns by UBC's
Athletics and Intramurals departments in a dispute over a new
recreation facility.
On September 20, Zoology
graduate student Lloyd Jeffs went
to War Memorial Gym to play Intramural drop-in volleyball. At
about 7:30 pm, Jeffs, along with
approximately 50 other people
waiting in the foyer, were told by a
staff member that the drop-in volleyball was cancelled.
The staff member said that
the session was cancelled because
the women's varsity basketball
practice was scheduled for the time
A few minutes later, a representative from Intramurals said
that Athletics had been doing this
for some time.
"I got the impression that the
drop-ins were basically being used
as pawns," Jeffs said, caught in the
struggle between Athletics de
partment with their current campaign for a new recreation facility
and Intramurals.
Parimal Rana, a fourth year
biology student, arrivedat the gym
at about 7:45 pm. At 8:00 pm, he
learned thatthe evening volleyball
had been cancelled and was annoyed to find no signs posted to
indicate this. Like Jeffs, he felt
used by Athletics and Intramurals,
but his primary concern was that
as a student paying fees, he should
be able to use the facilities.
Mike Adams, bookings manager for War Memorial Gym, said
the mix-up was due to an unresolved time slot between the two
Intramurals had not booked for corec volleyball time prior to October
1. Adams said there is not enough
space for all the people requesting
time. Currently, gym time is divided between physical education
classes, seven varsity teams,
Intramurals, and various student
Director of varsity athletics,
Joanne Jones, and director of
Intramurals, Nestor Korchinsky,
said as far as they are concerned
the lack of space at the time was
due to a simple misunderstanding
about the Gym's booking. Each
department thought that it had
the use ofthe facility that evening.
Korchinsky said the insufficient space is due to the growing
number of students interested in
participating in sports on campus.
Korchinsky added that the drop-in
volleyball evening usually has 200
people showinguptoplay, although
the courts can only hold 120 players.
UBC Athletics and Sport Services Director, Robert Hindmarch,
Jones, and Korchinsky met September 27 and concluded that drop-
in volleyball will resume next
Thursday at 7:30 at the War Memorial Gym. It will be held there
for the remainder of the term but
will switch to Osbourne Gym "A"

NPA constitution called undemocratic
member's demands for changes go ignored by nomination meeting's chair
by Liz Stephenson
The constitution of the Non-
Partisan Association, a civic political organization, was challenged Wednesday night at their
nominating convention.
During the proceedings, John
Jeffrey, an NPA member, attempted to call a point of order to
have bylaw 25 ofthe association's
constitution repealed but was ignored by the chair.
Under by law 25, an incumbent cannot seek re-election unless he or she is endorsed by the
nominating committee.
This effectively prevents any
incumbent who is not approved
by the committee from being
nominated from the floor.
Jeffery wanted the section
removed because he felt that it
"threatened the roots of democracy" and that the NPAmembers
should be able to determine
whether an incumbent could run
Section 25 became a cause
of controversy recently because
incumbent alderperson
Jonathan Baker was not re-endorsed by the nominating com
mittee. There was speculation that
Baker's supporters might attempt to
override section 25 and nominate
him from the floor.
Baker's views have often clashed
with those held by the other NPA
members, particularly over housing
issues. He said he was not surprised
that Jeffery's attempt to have section
25 repealed was ignored.
Baker said the NPA executive
were "people who often don't have a
concern for appropriate democratic
Baker said he had not submitted his name for re-nomination and
A new attendant's booth looms, threatening the time-honoured tradition of lifting
the gates that will soon, sadly, come to an end.
Parking will take its toll at B-Lot
By David Chivo
Users of B-Lot will by now
have noticed blue booths being installed in preparation for the
phasing out of automatic parking
The booths will be operated by
attendants to collect a new 15 cent
per hour parking fee.
While this new system will
more efficiently regulate the
manner each lot is filled, it will
significantly complicate the process of exiting. One ofthe problems
with the present system is that the
automatic gates sometimes stop
admitting vehicles even though
spaces are still available.
Students can anticipate long
queues to leave B-Lot during peak
hours as attendants will be busy
determining the amount due for
each car, in addition to dealing
with potentially time-consuming cash transactions.
B-Lot users who have commitments immediately after
school will find the new system
frustrating. Furthermore, those
students whostayfor long hours
at UBC will, in the long term,
discover that campus parking is
quite costly.
Compounding the UBC
parking problem is the imminent
closure of one of the B-Lots,
eliminating over 900 spaces. The
parking lot beside the
MacMillan building, for example, is scheduled to be replaced by a new forestry building.
AMS    president    Kurt
Preinsperg acknowledged that
campus parking is an issue that
must be dealt with; however, AMS
director of finance, John Lipscomb,
contradicted this and said that the
B-Lot changes, coupled with the
high cost of UBC parking in general, are beneficial for the environment as they encourage bus usage.
For those who have to drive a
car out to UBC, though, campus
parking may seem to be as rare
and as expensive as caviar. The
new B-Lot system will only complicate parking on campus and may
potentially force drivers to speed
to make up for lost time spent
waiting to exit. One could therefore
expect that the early September
line-ups at the bookstore will be a
daily occurrence at B-Lot.
he was intending to run as an independent. For this reason he discouraged a group of NPA members
who were considering an attempt
to nominate him from the floor,
despite bylaw 25.
Baker said Jeffery's attempt
at calling a point of order had
"nothing to do with my candi dacy."
He said that Jeffery had told him
that he wanted to challenge section 25 because he felt it was elitist
and non-democratic.
UBC political science professor Paul Tennant said that he understood why the NPA would want
to retain control over the endorsement process, however, he said he
believed the "membership should
have the ultimate decision" as to
whether or not an incumbent
should be re-nominated, rather
than having this power lie in the
nominating committee.
Mayor Gordon Campbell said
that he felt that the constitution
had been "properly carried
through" and that the place for
attempting to alter the constitution was the general annual
meeting, not a nominating convention.
premier Wells
angered over
"closed door"
Meech process
by Ben Brooks
Newfoundland premier Clyde
Wells, a key figure in the debate
and eventual demise ofthe Meech
Lake accord, spoke to a receptive
crowd of over eight hundredpeople
Tuesday night in Vancouver.
Wells was visiting British Columbia on invitation from provincial Liberal leader Gordon Wilson,
whom Wells called the "unsung
hero" ofthe Meech Lake debate for
the constant support and feedback
he gave during the crisis. Wells
expressed gratitude to all British
Columbians for their strong support and encouragement during
Meech Lake.
Wells spoke with lingering
anger about the "closed door"
process employed during the
Meech Lake debate, insisting that
it served only to divide the provinces, and deteriorate further
Quebec's relationship with
Canada. Well s maintained that the
leaders ofthe country who misrepresented Canadians during Meech
should never be forgiven.
The Newfoundland premier
expressed the need for a national
committee for the ongoing constitutional discussion and a "triple E
senate" as steps towards solving
Canada's constitutional problems.
Wells said "Canada's current constitution is not suited to a free and
democratic society."
Wells spoke with strong disapproval of the actions of several
provinces and regions to promote
solely their interests, and asked
instead that the people of the
country work together to promote
national unity. He acknowledged
Quebec's unique cultural and linguistic differences, and the absence of measures in Canada's
constitution to protect those differences. However, Wells said "no
province is more equal than any
Wells had harsh words regarding the federal government's
proposed goods and services tax,
stating the government "had
made an utter mess." He said
that if the government had taken
a straightforward approach in
proposing the GST, then the response of Canadians would have
been more favourable.
Part of the reason for the
general dislike of the proposed
tax, Wells said, was that it would
be "revenue neutral." Wells said
that if the tax were at least fighting the deficit, then Canadians
would be somewhat less disgruntled. He predicted a major
political and constitutional crisis
with the GST and the actions of
the senate.
Wells remarked that although he felt that the country is
currently facing a great deal of
political, constitutional, and economic turmoil; with the good will
of all the people of Canada, these
problems would be overcome.
Veitch tells UBC Young Socreds British Columbians at a crossroad
By David Chivo
In a speech to 50 Young
Socreds of UBC on Monday night,
the provincial minister of International Business and Immigration,
Elwood Veitch, outlined the issues
on which his party would fight the
next election.
"The choice for voters in the
next election will be simple, they
will decide between socialism and
free enterprise," Veitch said. "We
are at a crossroad; therefore, the
political direction that British
Columbians choose will be the most
important decision that the province has ever faced."
The minister said that all
British Columbians are benefiting
from his government's actions,
adding that "we are doing better
today than at any other time
before." Veitch credited the
province's prosperity to Social
Credit policies.
"Of all the Canadian provinces, British Columbia is the
only one with a balanced budget,
and it has been so for the past
two years. British Columbia is
also the only province whose
trade has increased. In fact B.C.
is doing so much better than the
other provinces that every year
50,000 people immigrate here
from other parts of Canada,"
Veitch said.
"The greatest threat to our
province" the minister said, "is NDP
socialism." His premise was that New
Democratic Party policies simply do
not work, but instead, counteract
the productive mechanism of free
Discussingthe 1972 to 1975 NDP
government in B.C., Veitch said
"during the 1200 days ofthe (former
NDPleader) Barrett rule, he and his
party managed to take a $92 million
surplus in the budget and turn it into
a $541 million dollar debt."
"Today, the only policy of the
Harcourt-led socialist opposition is
to spend, yet they do not say where
the money would come from. The
NDP must therefore have either no
agenda or a hidden agenda. Looking
at Barrett's remedy for our
province's economy in the seventies, can we afford to have an NDP
government in the nineties?"
The minister pointed to the
fall of Eastern Europe as signifying the ultimate failure of socialism at the hands of free enterprise.
Furthermore, he talked about the
economic turmoil in Sweden, a
nation long regarded by many as
the perfect welfare state, now
crippled due to years of steep taxation and a 25 per cent Goods and
Services Tax.
Tying the international
changes to the recent NDP victory
in Ontario, Veitch predicted that,
with continuing Social Creditrule,
"the Bay Street boys will inevitably be eyeing B.C." The minister
warned the audience though, that
an NDP victory in B.C. "would cost
the province hundreds of millions
of dollars."
The minister concluded by
saying "in the end, the choice is
between welfare with the NDP or
jobs with Social Credit. Our party
believes in policies that are fair,
balanced, and affordable. We always have and we always will.
British Columbians must therefore
ask themselves what the alternative wouldbe like: a province where
Mike Harcourt would be its leader
and where Mo Sihota would be
taking care of its security."

Wild, woolly films at witching hour
by Andrew Epstein
TOO often film programmers
celebrate what have
become known as "Cult Films," or
more aptly, B-Movies, in film festivals
and theme nights. This is not a good
The original B-movies were a
product ofthe Hollywood golden age
where all movies were presented in
double features. The main attraction,
with the big name stars, big budgets,
and high production values were the
A films. The Bs were simply movies
made by second stringers at the big
studios or by the more cost-conscious
The original B-movies were
professionally done films, only with a
smaller budget, and gave audiences a
chance to see emerging young
performers in starring roles, which
would have been too great a risk in
the more expensive films.
Somewhere along the line-
probably in the advent of low cost
video—the concept of B-films has
become associated with campy, poorly
made exploita
tion films, more often than not
released directly on video for home
The long term effect of this is to
instill in the minds ofthe normal
movie-goer that a low-budget film
means a stupid, poor quality, or just
plain bad movie. Young directors who
can't get mega-million dollar deals
together are further blocked from
making an independent film because
the only market that exists for them is
controlled by The Toxic Avengers
Meet the Surf Nazis on Mars.
Put more simply, people who have
something interesting to say are being
buried in the shit that gets all the
What a welcome surprise it was
that the Vancouver film festival seems
to have taken this into account in
their programming of their Midnight
films series.
Presented with the help of CiTR
radio, the films reflect a real sense of
championing non-mainstream films
that never fail to interest, stimulate
and most of all, entertain.
In the festival press material they
refer to the program as a collection of
films "trapped in a territory somewhere between the unconventional
and the outrageous." That seems to be
as good a description as any.
Pedro Almodovar, who has
practically become a household
name of late with his Women
on the Verge of a Nervous
Breakdown and the now
infamous Tie Me Up! Tie
Me Down!, is represented
here by his very first
feature film, Pepi, Luci,
Bom and
vSpirits of the Air, Gremlins of the Clouds, Weirdness ofthe Screen
Other Girls (Spain).
Long before Almodovar started
making the highly polished, if somewhat off-kilter films of recent years, he
made a series of early films which
captured the frenetic pace ofthe best
work ofthe Marx Brothers, while
bashing all normal cinematic conventions over the head with his distinctively gay-punk sensibilities.
As he grew more comfortable with
his craft much ofthe madness that
made his earliest works such a joy to
watch was bled off in favour ofthe
colour saturated eye-candy ofthe last
four films.
Pepi, Luci, Bom is a roller-coaster
ride of a film wherein Pepi tries to
exact revenge on the policeman who
raped her. You are not liable to see a
film that is as funny, amoral, audacious, and revolutionarily anarchic as
this one.
Another film which can only be
described as berserk is The
Killer (Hong Killer), which
was the surprise hit at the
1989 Toronto Film Festival.
American movie-going
audiences have a reputation
of having a thirst for action
that can only be slaked by
hundreds of fiery explosions and
lots and lots of machine-gun fire.
Compared to Hong Kong audiences, Americans are brooding and
A hired killer falls in love with the
night-club singer he accidentally blinds
(with powder burns from his m'achine-
gunfire) and decides to come out of
retirement to do one last assassination
in order to finance her eye operation.
The visual style ofthe film is not
unlike a rock video, except the music is
the rather repetitive song of machine
gun blasts, which rarely stops
throughout the entire length ofthe
two hour film.
This is a rollicking stand-up-and-
shout-at-the-screen film that pushes
the parameters of action films so far
back that no Sylvester Stallone
film could ever be interesting again
(not that they ever were anyway).
The closing film ofthe series is
Spirits ofthe Air, Gremlins ofthe
Clouds (Australia) made by the artist
collective known as Meaningful Eye
Some previous work by the production company include rock videos for
Crowded House and INXS, and the
visual style ofthe film certainly bears a
large debt to that art form.
The story takes place in the post-
apocalyptic outback of Mad Max's
Australia, and is sort of a retelling of
the Icarus myth.
A decidedly bizarre brother and
sister live in a shack in the midst of
the Australian outback.
Confined to a wheelchair, the
brother studies old books on man's
first attempts at flight and tries to
build a flying machine. His sister
surrounds herself with hand carved
crucifixes and plays what looks like a
home-made cello while howling at the
As is the case in so many films,
their equilibrium (such as it is) is
disrupted when a stranger comes to
call, and the threesome find out what
happens to a modern day Icarus when
they try to usurp the power of flight
from the gods.
Late at night, after the other film
fest offerings have long since ended,
don't forget there are still the most
interesting movies waiting to be seen.
They start at midnight.
Strand out from dark cloth
by Michael Gazetas
THE term documentary seems
to have a bad connotation
with the general film going audience. The assumption which is
usually inferred from the title
documentary is that it will be boring,
because, hey, let's face reality, all
non-fiction is boring. Isn't it?
The real shame in the present
situation of narrative fiction film
overindulgence is that people do not
realize that documentary filmmaking
needs a completely different viewpoint to appraise it. Comparing
fiction and non-fiction with the same
critical tools is unfair since they are
different creatures. Its the old apples
and oranges argument all over again.
Take a look at one of the few
documentaries on view at the
Vancouver International Film
Festival— Strand: Under the Dark
Cloth. The entire film is an exquisite
journey into the life of world famous
photographer, Paul Strand. It is
neither boring nor heavy. Instead
humor and the fascinating life vision of
Strand combine with the collage of
director John Walker's extraordinary
documentary techniques to produce a
exploration into the semic codes ofthe
relationship between artist and
What are semic codes you ask, and
what do they have to do with documentary film? Semic codes are basically
the inherent meaning of a particular
object or value in a society;: Different
societies can have similar objects with
completely different meanings or
purposes. Films use serine codes as a
way to lay down a foundation for'the
overlying story and action. Narrative
fiction takes pre-ordained semic codes
and in creating a story allows those
codes to become manipulated and
twisted, giving the audience suspense
and disorientation.
Documentary films use
semic codes in a
totally different
way. They
usually begin
with a story of a
set of circumstances whose
semic codes are
unknown or
unclear. The
movement is
created by the
filmmaker or
audience solving
the mystery as
theories are
presented. This
creates a highly
intriguing scenario which challenges
the audience to comprehend new
information and points of view without
pre-conceived opinions.
The beauty of Strand: Under the
Paul Strand plays with those ole semic codes
Dark Cloth lies in the way it presents
the ambiguous semic codes of art,
especially photography, as Paul
Strand understood them.

When gangsters go wrong
by Richard Pearson
MflCKING off this year's
■_L---.Vancouver International
Film Festival is Miller's Crossing,
the latest collaborative effort by the
brothers Coen.
This is the third film from the
fraternal duo that brought us such
notable screen credits as the
horrific, Hitchkockian Blood Simple
and the manically funny Raising
As was the case on earlier
efforts, Ethan Coen produces, his
brother Joel directs, and the two
work together on the screenplay of
this reworking ofthe old Hollywood
gangster film.
The action began long before
the film: in making my way to the
Pacific Cinematheque I became
profoundly lost, incredibly so.
Fortuitously, I made the screening
just as the opening credits were
Happily, lost is not a word that
I would use in describing Miller's
Crossing, unless one considers the
permutations ofthe storyline, but
hey, Fm getting ahead of myself.
In a conscious effort not to
repeat themselves, the Coens have
come up with this dark, twisted,
brilliant film in the style ofthe
1920s gangster movies.
Miller's Crossing further
borrows from the tradition of
Dashiell Hammett and Raymond
Chandler novels, where the plot is a
convoluted puzzle that can only be
seen in the dark nebulous background and deciphered for any
internal harmony at home with
Nuff said. As with all films of
this genre, there are certain stock
characters. In this case in particu
lar, there are three mythic figures
dominating the storyline. Leo
(Albert Finney), is disappointing as
the Irish crime domo ofthe
Nawleans town (Big Town).
Leo's rival is the maniacally
riveting Johnny Caspar (Jon Polito),
a man who rues the lack of ethics in
the criminal milieu of 1929.
The erstwhile hero ofthe film is
Tommy Regan (Gabriel Byrne)—
Leo's painfully honest aide de camp
whose drunken, sarcastic wit is not
appreciated by the different factions
as is his insouciant intelligence.
Tommy's ability to characterize
people and situations as they truly
are make him the quintessential
Hammett figure (as Bogie used to
You never have any idea how
much Tommy knows and exactly
what his plans or machinations are.
He is at once not a purely altruistic
man, but has at his core, a set of
principles and
adheres to this
code. His character
tests the other
characters to see
what they are made
of, and what they
Skinner (of
psychology fame).
Tommy puts it
more simply, telling
Caspar, "No one
knows anyone, at
least not that well."
Tommy obviously
knows people and
the depths that
they can be made
to go, but he is not aware ofthe
limits of what he himself can be
capable of. This is most evident in
the forest scenes where death and
destinies cross; where the surreal
seminal image of hoods in the
woods remains indelibly etched
upon the mental palate as much for
the incongruity of it all as for its
visceral visuality.
The woods are the crossing of
the title, where Tommy meets up
with himself and finds out how
terrible he can actually be and still
be considered human.
The gangster's moll is the
tough-talking Verna (the debut for
Marcia Gay Harden), who gives
herself to Tommy and has a
relationship with Leo, but only for
the sake of her brother Bernie
(John Turturro).
Turturro is repugnantly
outstanding as Bernie, who makes
his living selling info. Regretfully,
Bernie's character is a minor part
and appears mostly in the scenes
with Tommy.
Visually, the film is dark, dark
and muted—in that order. The
dialogue, though blatantly Irish, is
rapier quick, with Tommy getting
most of lines.
As far as gangster flicks go,
Miller's Crossing will not make you
forget the Untouchables or the
Godfather, but it has its own
unique place.
The Coens, using their
innovative, enthusiastic techniques
of filmmaking, can make you
believe there will be greater things
to come from them—and I for one,
will continue waiting with the
proverbial bated breath.

being touted as the sex,

Vancouver Film Festival. It
would be more appropriately
titled The Decline ofthe Debutante Empire.
Every night the members of
the Sally Forbes Rat Pack, who
are UHBbies (Urban Haute
Bourgeois), meet to compare
their limited life experiences.
Home for Christmas from their
Ivy League universities they
converge on the Upper East Side
of Manhattan to attend all the
right parties given in the correct
places. The "after parties" (as in
after Park Avenue parties, fancy
dress balls and dinner at
Elaines') are held at Sally's
place and hence the name ofthe
After parties are the setting
for most of the movie at which
the group discuss love, families,
friendship, literature, and of
course, 5th Avenue shopping.
The dialogue is quirky, verbose,
literate and usually entertaining. Veteran members of the
group meet and adopt Tom
Townsend prior to one ofthe
after parties. Tom is an
anomaly at the parties since he
is a socialist and, worse yet,
Though Tom starts the
movie condemning the privileged group for their ignorance
ofthe real world he eventually

dependent upon this life.
Conversely the debs are becom

partially because their breed is
dying a slow death.
Simply put, the UHBbies'

To the credit ofthe director
Whit Stillman, it's a relief to
see an entertaining film that

financing and the big Hollywood

But clearly the difficulty

people is what one may call the
"thirtysomething dilemma." To
enjoy a film about such people it
is necessary that you first jump
the hurdle of accepting (or even
acknowledging) that filthy rich
people do have problems.
In this manner, Metropolitan is reminiscent of literary
appreciation of F. Scott
Fitzgerald's literature in the

Another John Walker
documentary playing at the
Vancouver International Film
Festival is Leningradskaya,
Southern Russia.
The problem with this,
the latest effort of Walker is
that he has decided to film
interviews with survivors of
the Stalinist purges using a
style that is realistic, but
ultimately self-defeating.
Walker begins the hour-
long film with a historical
statement covering the events
which took place as seven
million peasants starved to
death when farm collectivization was being introduced.
From then on the action
is based on interviews where
elderly peasants retell the
same information given to us
at the beginning. After 10
minutes of stagy interviews
and translations the impact

Walker makes the mistake of creating a static film
whose point is made in the
first five minutes. Badly
needed are some other
visuals or interesting information which will propel the
movie to reach loftier questions.
Most will agree after the
first five minutes that what
happened was a horrific
event; however, we young
Canadians have no memory
to reinforce and no experience with hardship on the
level these people experienced.
The triumph is that
Walker managed to capture
the historical record. It is a
shame he was unable to do

Who is the real terrorist?
by Colin Maycock
HIDDEN Agenda aroused
a great deal of anger
when it was picked as the
British entry in the Cannes film
festival. Set in Northern
Ireland, the film deals with
subjects that the government
would rather not discuss,
including the Army's shoot to
kill policy, corruption within the
Royal Ulster Constabulary and,
ultimately, the direct subversion
ofthe democratic process.
The film is based loosely on
the Stalker affair, a scandal
that broke out in Britain when a
prominent police officer's highly
critical report was officially
quashed by the authorities and
subsequently leaked to the
The narrative focus is on
the shooting of an American
civil liberties activist and IRA
sympathizer. A high ranking
policeman is flown in from the
mainland to effectively clean the
British roost before too many
embarrassing questions can be
asked. Brian Fox plays
Kerrigan, the "incorruptible cop"
whose investigation quickly
turns up evidence of something
a lot nastier than extreme police
What makes this film so
chilling is its setting. Belfast
looks like Beirut without the
palm trees. Even the air there
appears tainted by the violence
caused by sectarianism. The
houses and streets are huddled
in the metaphorical and literal
darkness ofa place where the
idea of ethical behaviour is
crushed beneath the weight of
historical antagonisms and the
sheer brutality of the combatants.
It is precisely this lawless
frame that initially softens the
impact ofthe film's revelation
of corruption in the highest
places. Furthermore, it is in the
viewer's placid acceptance of
the vicious realpolitik of life in
Belfast that this film's true
horror lays. In this way Hidden
Agenda reveals the depth of its
title. It exposes a dark chasm in
which morality is only as strong
as the arms that back it and in
doing so, illustrates the film's
own implicit agenda. It is
rewarding to compare the
defenses in each ofthe warring
faction's respective camps,
gentle Georgian houses are
surrounded by barbed wire and
armed men while a republican
pub looks more like a fortress
than a bar.
The film's revelations ofthe
alabaster complexion ofthe
British ruler's hypocrisy is
ruthless and convincing.
But the really disturbing
issue is the viewer's inability to
choose sides, not to mention the
concomitant desire to do so.

Mr. Fat Tone and the sound
of Texas in a Slipper
by Graham Ashford
IT was a surprisingly broad
cross section of jazz lovers
who made the Tuesday evening
pilgrimage to Vancouver's mecca
of groove, The Glass Slipper.
David "Fathead" Newmann
Glass Slipper
Upon descending the stairs
I had the feeling of entering the
basement ofa small church. The
dim lights and smoke enshrouded tables seemed somehow out of place, but after
settling down on a couch at the
side ofthe room I began to get
the feeling I had stumbled onto
something. The room was warm
and full of chatter regarding the
jazz event that was about to
Shortly after ten o'clock The
Kelly Roberty Trio took the stage
dealing out a snakey little
rhythm before welcoming
saxophonist David "Fathead"
Neuman, who shuffled up to the
stage as though he had just risen
to answer the door at 4:30 in the
morning. Any uneasy thoughts
that this might be a sleeper of an
evening were quickly dispelled
with Neuman's first breath.
Elusive sax lines floated
around like whisps of smoke and
the narrow confines ofthe room
suddenly seemed spacious.
Neuman wrapped up his first
number to a hail of applause and
picking up his flute he dove into
the funky rhythm of "Montana
Banana". For a brief moment he
seemed distraught and motioned
anxiously towards the sound
technician. As the levels were
adjusted and the band took on a
more complete sound, Neuman
grinned and stepped back to let
his peers take the spotlight.
Although he has traded
licks with countless greats a
including Booker Ervin, Ornet
Coleman, T-Bone Walker^ Ray
Charles and more recently, Dr.
John and .Art Blakely, Neuman
consciously gives his bandmates
room for personal expression.
The trio took full advantage of
this freedom, revealing themselves as a fluid inventive force
that was tight to a 16th note.
The two hour long set
coaxed smiles from the audience
as Neuman guided the band
through such classics as the
Neuman-Charles hit "Hard
Times", Thomas "Fats" Waller's
"Ain't Misbehaving" as well as
newer tracks including the
vibrant "Sunshower".
Whether grooving slyly or
soaring unrestrained, "Fathead"
Neuman laid down the lines this
night with a style and finesse
equalled only by the great jazz
masters of yesterday and today!
Stay tuned for the next
steaming show as Betty Carter
takes the stage at t_ie Commodore September 30th at 9pm.
This promises to be a sizzler and

The Oka crisis
is not over
The Oka crisis did not start a mere 78 days ago, nor
is it over now.
The conflict between the Mohawks and both levels of
government dates back to the 1950s when the RCMP
attempted to force the Indian Act on the Mohawks.
Even the golf course dispute dates back a year at
But now, with the Warriors and their supporters
having left the confines of their barricades and laid down
their arms, what will happen?
People around Canada are waiting to see what comes
next. The federal government has promised negotiations
when the barricades came down. Will negotiations, in Oka
and all across the country be in good faith, unlike those
during and before the Oka conflict?
The whole process is off to a poor start. Despite
promises from the military, a small group of Mohawk
warriors have landed up in the hands of the Surete du
Quebec, a force renowned for its racism.
A further five Mohawks who appeared in court yesterday were turned over to the SQ by the order of a judge,
despite assurances that they would remain in the custody
ofthe armed forces. Presumably all Mohawks held by the
military will suffer a similar fate when their turn in court
How will the Mohawks in SQ custody be treated?
Do the Mohawks have a hope in hell of receiving
justice when the whole country has only seen the events
of the past ten weeks, rather than those of centuries?
Justice itself can be interpreted in a number of ways:
just treatment of the Warriors, as well as their supporters,
at the hands ofthe SQ and the military; just treatment for
the Mohawks of Kahnesatake, and the entire Mohawk
nation; just treatment for all the first nations.
The minister for Indian and Northern Affairs, Tom
Siddon, has promised that when the barricades came
down the government would negotiate. He has reiterated
this promise since the Warriors have put down their guns.
Yet throughout the crisis it has been apparent that
the governments involved have NOT negotiated in good
faith. Certain issues such as the all-important issue of
sovereignty are still not open for discussion in their eyes.
Governments are going to have to deal withthisissue
sooner or later. It seems unlikely that the pressure from
the native nations and their non-native supporters is
going to go away. Calls for continued actions around BC
and in other provinces have already been made. Sooner,
therefore, might be the best option.
One can try to be hopeful and optimistic.
Unfortunately, past precedents do not suggest such a
view. The behavior ofthe SQ, the false promises made by
successive governments — most recently military's assurances to the Warriors — and the actions of Canadian
society as a whole do not warrant it.

The machine was primed and ready. Out it rolled onto the
open road. Michael Booth was happy. Tigger was even happier.
Colin Maycock lit up a cigarette. Niko Fleming hopped on the roof,
and Graham Coleman passed him the typewriter. They were
ready for the parade. They put on their shades. No one really knew
what was going to happen that day. It was hot. So was Elaine
Griffith. Too hot to mention why. Steve Chan even heard the
sizzle. David Chivo was disappointed when it turned out to be the
over-heating radiator. Sophia Harris and Ben Brooks went to the
gas station for water. Mark Nielsen realized just how hot it was
and went to get himself, Martin Chester, and Paul Dayson a Coke.
Warren Whyte and Andrew Epstein however had decided to
boycott the multinational monsters ofthe world and so the Coke
machine was (not-so) mysteriously jammed. Paul Thompson
went to Wreck hoping to catch some late season sun worshipping
navels. He found Don Mah and Rebecca Bishop creeping in the
bushes shooting cheap pornographic pics because they were
having a hard time making ends meet. They caught Mike Gazetas

willing to pay cash. Meanwhile, a parade had happened and no
one had noticed. Verna rolled her eyes. Hadani sighed. Don Koo
just was. No one knew quite what however. Yggy King was
waiting for the night to come. Liz Stephenson and Arnie Ho
performed pagan dances for the Demi-sun-goddess, Anita Misera
til the sun disappeared.
The sizzling car was filled with water, cooled, and rolled back
into the garage for another day. The environmentalists were
bound to scream anyway, so Nadene Rehnby said "what the

Dear UBC students,
I believe that automatic
summer hiring of the AMS
executive is a waste of student money. If a direct grassroots democracy replaced the
AMS as described on p.6 of
the Tuesday Sept. 25

could be eliminated or serve
nominal roles. Even if the
AMS is not replaced, the executive need not be hired in
the summer as long as someone (need not be me) is hired

elected D of F should only

in turn ensure that the D of

The executive worked
on some good projects this
past summer, such as the
Student Survey, the Drug

the Walk-Home Program.
However, the executive
should not be automatically

easy to learn: there are new
executives each January.
The AMS Business Office
would need more staffand/
or a computer upgrade in
order to compile and implement the AMS Budget. The

something like a MacPlus in
order to write memos and

Although I keep referring to the AMS Budget, and
although the AMS Bylaws

people in the AMS have actually been following recent
budgets. When I started my
term, there were literally
hundreds of expenses outside of the Budget. I have
reduced this drastically.

I have dealt with
John Lipscomb on a number
of occasions and have found
him to be polite, conscientious and hardworking. To
publicly call for a student's
removal from council for
other than criminal or radical actions is ridiculous and
insulting. It should be remembered that student
politics are meant to be a
learning experience and a
student's reputation should
not be damaged as aresult of
their willingness to get involved. The political infighting on student council
is inevitable, but let's not
take it to extremes.
Wouldn't it be nice
to see students' council put
some of this negative,
counter productive energy
toward some positive things.

"stalks" suspicious stranger
I wish to congratulate
the RCMP (University detachment) on their excellent
work this September in
bringing the theft problem
at UBC to the attention of
the public.
On Wednesday in the
third week of September I
saw a man remove a black
backpack from the University bookstore.
I followed him because
he looked out of place, and
he got up from where he was
sitting, crossed the floor to
the cash register exit, and
picked up the pack.
He carried the pack into
the Biological Sciences
building, went up a flight of
stairs, and pulled out a ring
of gold-colored keys.
He looked at me, and
carried the pack back to the
bookstore. He put it down
near the side exit door and
went into the bookstore, near
the graphic arts section.
When I pointed him out
to the bookstore staff, he
looked frightened and left
the bookstore immediately.
He was about 55 years
old, with short receding
brown hair and a cleanshaven face. About 5'10" and
150 lbs. He wore ablack cloth

Lipscomb clean
says GDC
1 am writing with regard to
the allegations made at the 19
September 1990 AMS Council
meetingthat John Lipscomb, AMS
Director of Finance, has acted in
conflict of interest by his involvement in the Global Development
Centre (GDC).
Students should be aware that
the GDC has received no benefit
from John's involvement apart
from the unpaid effort John has
put in to listen and respond to
endless questions about the AMS,
its structure, how it operates, and
what role Service Organizations
may play within it, to take messages from interested students over
the summer while few GDC members had stable phone numbers,
and to make members ofthe GDC
Organizing Committee aware of
the relevant Codes and Bylaws of
the AMS so that the GDC would
not act in transgression of these.
presentation to the AMS to request constitution as a Service
Organization, the GDC submitted
a balanced budget and made a verbal affirmation to the AMS Council members that the GDC did not
wish to ask for or receive support
in its first year. The GDC budget is
entirely self-sufficient.
The only 'consideration' the
GDC has received from any branch
ofthe AMS has been the allocation
of an unshared office space. Please
note that this 'consideration' was
extended by SAC, which is chaired
by Roma Gopaul-Singh, not John
Lipscomb. Note also that the GDC
never requested this office space.
In short, the one 'benefit' John
might have been able to make
available to the GDC, and thereby
to act i n conflict of interest with hi s
role as D of F, namely, financial
support, has neither been offered
to, nor requested by the GDC.
Let me add in response to Jason Ford's letter in the last edition,
that Mr. Ford is welcome to consult
the Key Sign-Out sheet for the
GDC office which is held in the
AMS Business Office. He will not
find Mr. Lipscomb's name on it.

Politics a waste of
I would like to briefly address
the recent issue regarding the recall ofthe Director of Finance, John
Firstly, I strongly feel that the
situation has surfaced because ofa
personality conflict between a few
individuals within the executive.
The attempt is undoubtedly a political move by the individuals in
order to increase their personal
power within the organization.
Personally, I think it is a shame to
see so much energy being wasted
on such political matters, rather
than being put into more constructive efforts which reflect the views
andopinion ofthe students at large.
Secondly, it is finally refreshing to see someone dedicated to
global and environmental issues,
so as to integrate these principles
into the working aspect of their
life. So often, the University seems
to exist in a little world all its own,
yet even here we can make our
individual contributions. Itis great
to see individuals, like John, willing to put up with the political
absurdity and publicly support organizations whose cause in which
they strongly believe. Perhaps with
people like John Lipscomb in
council there is some hope for a
better world after all.

Dear UBC students,
I'm sorry to hear that Laura
Myers is quitting. Laura got many
new things going this year. She
helped coordinate parts of the
Frosh Program & Homecoming;
both these areas are outside of her
set responsibilities. She was un-
der-budget last year, was conscientious about cleaning up her accounts and requested less money
than Budget Committee was willing to give her.
It's unfortunate that Laura
quitting has anything to do with
my letter. My letter was meant to
be rambling on about day. In fact,
mentioning Laura as overworked
and involved in Frosh Week — not
her responsibility — were meant
to be complimentary. I did talk to
Laura about the incident personally.

Birds run afoul
by Warren Whyte
UBC's soccer teams gave up
more goals on Wednesday night
than they have allowed all year.
Both Thunderbird teamsgave
up their first two goals ofthe season in games that saw a spirited
Simon Fraser University side tie
the men in the seventh annual
Diachem Bowl, while the UBC
women were defeated 2-1 by the
University of Victoria in the preliminary match.
Approximately 850 fans were
thoroughly entertained by freewheeling play and over 20 shots on
goal in the featured event.
Rob Reed, UBC's leading
scorer and most pleasant surprise
thus far, opened the scoring with
the only legal goal ofthe first half.
An SFU goal near the end of the
half was waved off.
The halftime whistle blew as
an SFU free kick was taken. The
ball did enter the net but the referee ruled that time had expired.
Hearing the whistle, UBC goalkeeper Ray Lohr made no attempt
to stop the shot.
UBC head coach Dick Mosher
said, "he heard the whistle. He
thought they were retaking it."
SFU got revenge 15 minutes
into the second half when Lloyd
Silva netted his first goal of the
UBC regained the lead seven
minutes later courtesy ofa blast by
striker Billy Conner.
Silva scored his second goal in
the dying minutes ofthe contest to
pull SFU even. Both of Silva's
goals were initiated and assisted
by Scott Munson who was later
voted the Diachem Bowl's Most
Valuable Player.
The tie leaves UBC's record in
the Diachem Bowl at three wins,
two losses, and two ties.
Reflecting on the game,
Mosher said "generally I was
happy. We were able to get 18
players in there and take a look at
the fitness.
"Finish is always a problem.
We missed three or four chances in
the first half, but you can always
say that," he said.
In the women's exhibition
game, the UVic Vikings scored two
goals before Cory Hare could reply
for UBC.
Both the men's and women's
teams head to Alberta this weekend for games against Lethbridge
and Calgary.
