Array UBC planning summer jobs for women
By LLO YANNE HURD
UBC is planning a summer job
placement program for women
science students who intend to
enter the male-dominated fields of
foestry and engineering.
Associate forestry dean Antal
Kozak said Monday the university
has been discussing the
possibilities of organized employment for students in forestry
and engineering for a long lime.
He said one of the concerns of the
faculties of applied science and
forestry is that students who want
to enter these departments cannot
find summer employment that
relates to these fields and as a
result cannot assess their
educational goals adequately.
Associate applied sciences dean
Axel   Meison,   dean   of   women
Margaret Fulton and Kozak have
worked out a pilot program
designed to operate for three
years.
The program, designed for
women, will also include men if at
theend of three years it has proven
to be effective.
"We wanted to know how to get
the summer employment program
started and this is a good way,"
Kozak said.
Cheryl Bond, chairwoman of the
co-operative education coordinating committee, said Monday
the program is badly needed.
"Women need these opportunities and encouragement but
we really want to avoid reverse
discrimination," she said.
"Co-operative education is a
program offered throughout
Canada but ours is the only one in
Canada designated for women."
In an effort to insure the
program would not be seen as
discriminating against men,
Fulton sought the approval of the
Human Rights Branch.
Kathleen Ruff, director of the
human rights branch, said in a
letter to Fulton: "as the proposed
program will promote the welfare
of a previously disadvantaged
group, the human rights commission grants exemption under
I Vol. LX, No. 29       VANCOUVER, B.C., TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 22, 1977
228-2301 J
section 11(5) of the Human Rights
Code."
Section 11(5) of the Human
Rights Code states: "The commission may approve programs of
government, private
organizations, or persons designed
to promote the welfare of any class
of individuals and any approved
program shall be deemed not to be
in contravention of any of the
provisions of this Act."
Students are eligible for the
program if they meet the academic
requirements for the departments
of forestry and engineering, said
Bond.
All women in science will be
receiving a letter specifying the
requirements for the program so
they can apply this year or assess

Tuition hike
'not in winds'
By BILL TIELEMAN
UBC students will not likely be
facing a tuition fee increase next
year, administration president
Doug Kenny said Monday.
A tuition fee increase is not "in
the winds" as it was last year, he
said. Tuition fees went up 25 per
cent this year at UBC.
"I would hope that we wouldn't
even have to contemplate a tuition
increase. That would be the last
thing that I would want to contemplate," Kenny said in an interview with The Ubyssey to be
published in full Thursday.
Kenny said he would advise the
board of the problems students
faced with the last tuition increase.
"One point I would make to the
board (of governors) is the way
students had to bear the burden of
the 25 per cent increase last year,"
he said.
Kenny said students should not
have to bear the cost of two tuition
fee increases in the time they
spend getting their degrees.
Kenny also said UBC could
become a mediocre university
very soon unless provincial
government funding is substantially increased.
"We're right on the knife edge.
We can go one way and continue to
be a great university or we can go
the other way and become a
mediocre university," he said.
UBC has received no information
on what size the operating budget
increase will be for next year,
Kenny said.
"We have received no indications, from either the
(Universities) council or the
government," he said.
Kenny said he does not believe
UBC's public image has been hurt

Mann beats Corcoran in UEL election fight
By JAN NICOL
Although potential candidates
for the January election of student
board of governors representatives
are cautious about committing
themselves, current student board
member Basil Peters said he will
run again for a third term.
And in e separate election,
student board member Moe Sihota
said he is seeking the position of
chancellor as a form of protest
against the domination of the
board by businessmen and
professionals.
And Dave Jiles, Alma Mater
Society director of services, said
he will enter the race for a board
seat if the administration review

By MIKE JONES
Iva Mann was re-elected Saturday as the
University Endowment Lands representative
on the Greater Vancouver Regional District
board.
Mann said Monday she plans to obtain
municipal status for the UEL, start up a
crosstown bus service leading to UBC and
improve parking facilities for the UBC
hospital.
The losing candidate, Jane Corcoran, said
that although she lost votes turn-out was
good.
"We were really pleased with the voter
turn-out," she said. The number of voters
came to 797. Corcoran received 288 votes
while Mann got 509.
Corcoran said the high turn-out indicates a
growing awareness of political issues by UEL
residents.
"This is the first time the entire community
was involved and became aware of the
issues," she said.
The last time an election was held on the
UEL for a GVRD representative only 570
people voted.
But Corcoran said she is concerned about
how Mann will conduct her role as representative on the GVRD.
She said Mann will not allow UEL residents
to participate fully in policy decisions affecting the area.
Public forums should be held on important
issues, Corcoran said. "I will be working to
bring about the community forums."
She said Mann has not made forums an
important part of her plans.
"I hope that this election will give her a
feeling that the community is interested."
Asked whether or not she was in favor of
public forums Mann said she had considered
the issue.
' 'I know that you would never get a represents tivegroupof the community (at a public
forum) because not many people would come
to the meeting," Mann said.
Mann said she has not consulted the UEL
public on what they think about the UEL
getting municipal status. She said this is for
theprovincial government to consider and not
for the GVRD.
"It's not under the jurisdiction of the
GVRD," she said.
not   implement   ideas   he   has
suggested to them.
"I could be convinced to run if
the committee isn't going
anywhere," he said. "I would run
on a platform of increased student
services to make UBC a community of people where interests
are met."
Student senator-at-large Arnold
Hedstrom said he will run for
board if he does not see two candidates who will be open with the
information they learn while on
board.
"I am worried about Basil
Peters getting re-elected," he said.
"He has a weak political sense and
will not talk about board meetings
as his last two years on board have
proven.
Peters said he is apolitical and
will campaign on the platform that
a student member should be
"responsible, concerned and a
serious academic."
Peters said the two major issues
he will campaignon are the quality
of education in the face of budget
restraints and the direction and
goals of UBC as a part of the post-
secondary education system in
B.C.
Peters said the campaign is
important because it could be the
last chance for students to be board
members, due to threats by
education minister Pat McGeer
that he may cut studen:
representation.
"It is important for students tu
show that they care enough to vote

'Press misunderstands China7
By KATHY FORD
The Western press has misinterpreted the current attempt by
Chinese Communist party leaders
to speed up industrialization in the
People's Republic, author Han
Suyin said Sunday.
Han, speaking to a near-capacity
crowd of 2,500 at the Orpheum
Theatre, said western journalists
are condemning the increasing industrialization of China as
"deMaoification."
"I am perturbed and surprised
that these things that were being
done (in China since chairman
Mae Tse-tung's death) are being
looked on as introduced by prag-
matist leaders .. . and as a
symptom of deMaoification," Han
said.
"Mao advocated an industrialized, socialist, strong,
modern, prosperous China.
"I am amazed what the western
newspapers write today. It is as if
there was contradiction, as if the
revolution was made to stop productivity. As if socialism should
cause poverty."
Han said that only people who
havenot read Mao's writings could
say increasing productivity in
China is against the chairman's
philosophies.
"He wrote it (socialism) should
liberate productivity," she said.
"There is a great coherence (in
Mao's teachings) . . . throughout
these years."
She said some people think the
only way to have progress and development is the capitalist way.
"Is that true? That is not true. It
is not true."
She said people falsely argue
that increasing a Chinese worker's
salary is capitalistic.
"There is nothing wrong with it.
Mao said the standard of living
should increase year by year. Is it
socialism's aim to create poverty?
"Not at all. It's the exact opposite."
She said one of the aims of the
revolution is to stimulate the
economy and to create "wealth in
abundance."
"Communism can only come
once there is an abundance and
surplus of material goods."
She said the drive toward this
goal in China is not capitalist,
revisionist, or "deMaoificating,"
despite what the press may say.
"China is in a new phase in which
socialism will be  consolidated."
Han disagrees with journalists
who say the cultural revolution is
being abandoned.
"Once they (the press) get ahold
of "the wrong ideas they are
reported and reported until they
become like the Bible," she said.
"It was only possible to get rid of
the Gang of Four because of the
cultural revolution. It (the
revolution) had its good and bad
sides.
"The Chinese revolution is not a
nice little tea party. It has not been
easy."
Kin spoke at length about the
history of the revolution and about
the doings of the Gang of Four. She
said most of the bad things that
took place as a result of the
cultural revolution were caused by
the gang.
She said power corrupted the
gang, which included Mao's wife
Chiang Ching, to the point where
the cultural revolution was no
longer a way for them to serve the
Chinese people but a way to take
power "and they quickly became
rotten."
Although Chiang denounced
violence in her public speeches,
Han said, she secretly fueled it.
"This went against what Mao
said," Han said, adding that Mao
advocated revolution through
debate, not violence.
The gang increased its activities
in 1973, she said. Mao began to
have attacks of sclerosis of the
arteries of the brain in that year
and his premier, Chou En-lai, was
also ill.
Han said that of the 19 members
of the politburo, the governing
body of the Communist Party in
China, only two could resist the
gang. Six members were from the
provinces and thus were not in
Peking often enough to see what
was going on.
Five of the remaining 13
members were sick or old, the
gang acted as a bloc and two of the
remaining four were afraid of the
gang.
"Now was the time (for the
gang) to take power," Han said.
The gang began denouncing
people who made the slightest
mistakes. Han said it reached the
point where they were calling all
peopleover the ageof 45 capitalists
because they were alive before the
revolution.
"This was with the exception of
the Gang of Four, although they
were well over 45," she said.
What concerned her, Han said,
was the fact the gang was
corrupting the youth. She said
centres were set up where young
people were turned into what she
called hooligans.
"Is that revolution? Is that the
way to make revolution? Is that
what is admirable?
"How can anyone call that kind
of thing building a socialist
country?"
She accused the gang of taking
over the railway system at the
time of the earthquake in China in
July, 1976. She said it caused
shortages everywhere except in
Shanghai.
Han also accused it of stopping
work in the factories.
Although the gang is now
powerless, Han said she is still
concerned about the young people
who were influenced by its
philosophies of revolution.
"Now there is reconstruction,"
she said.

Gov't may reduce tax info rules
By CHRIS BOCKING
The Association of Student
Councils has finally become affiliated with the National Union of
Students, ending a seven-year
division between the two
organizations.
Alina Mater Society president
John DeMarco said one advantage
of the affiliation is that the two
organizations could help each
other financially.
"Since AOSC and NUS have
different cash flow problems,
merging the two would allow them
to help each other during the
year," he said.
Another benefit of the merger
would be the improvement in
visibility of both  NUS and the
OTTAWA (CUP) — Responding to student opposition to aid regulations requiring release of personal income tax information, finance minister Jean
Chretien has said a less sweeping tax waiver may be
instituted in 1978-79.
Chretien said in a Nov. 15 letter to the National
Unionof Students: "we are hopeful that for 1978-79 a
waiver less broad than the current one will be incorporated.
'"Ihe current wording is broad because, at present,
it is not administratively possible for the department
of national revenue to provide selective data.
"We are continuing discussions with that department with a view to establishing a system under
which only selected information will be provided to
provincial authorities."
Chretien's letter follows a Nov. 8 letter to NUS from
revenue minister Joseph Guay, in which Guay said he
agreed with NUS that the general access waiver now
used "merits very serious consideration regarding
the potential for disclosure of irrelevant information."
Guay had also said he would forward his letter to
Chretien to stress his view that maintaining the
confidentiality of income tax data is critical.
NUS executive-secretary Dan O'Connor said
Chretien's letter indicates the federal government is
backing down on the controversial waiver question
while trying to save face.
NUS and the federal NDP have urged students not
to sign the tax waivers, which they have labelled a
"massive invasion of tax privacy."
Students in six provinces are required to submit
income tax forms or sign a waiver which allows aid
officials to examine their tax returns and those of
their parents.
The system was introduced after some provincial
education ministers and the representative of the
federal student loan program claimed the loan
system was being abused.
Proponents of the waiver system have said
previously thereis no alternative to the broad waiver.
But Nova Scotia and Alberta have said they can be
avoided by requesting notarized statements or
submitting financial data to the department of
national revenue for verification.
AOSC to students, said DeMarco.
"As a result of this affiliation
AOSC would be able to take advantage of the NUS's better
communication channels."
The AOSC and NUS were formed
after the breakup of the Canadian
Union of Students in 1970.
The AOSC was formed to provide
services such as its travel service
to university students.
NUS is a more political
organization aimed at unifying
post-secondary students into a
single body.
To become a member of NUS an
institution must pass a referendum
approving a $1 fee levy for each
student.
The proposal to merge the two
organizations was first proposed at
the NUS conference last May.
NUS was reluctant to join at first
because AOSC operated at a deficit
for two years. But when it was
learned that AOSC would have a
profit of $30,000 for 1977-78, opposition to the merger faded.
DeMarco said a disadvantage of
the plan is that if an institution
wants to join AOSC it must also
join NUS which charges a fee of $1
per student.
But he said this is not a serious
problem.
"Most institutions in Canada who
would want to join either
organization have already done
so."
There are currently 24 student
organizations which are members
of both the AOSC and NUS.
AOSC has 50 member institutions
but NUS has only 35.
"The benefits of merging AOSC
and NUS far outweight the disadvantages," DeMarco said.

From page 1
by two recent scandals involving
faculty members.
"I base that on people I talk to in
the community. One or two
blemishes don't cause most
thinking people to generalize,"
about faculty members, he said.
In September applied sciences
dean Liam Finn resigned after
drawing criticism when it was
reported that he made large
amounts of money from off-
campus jobs while being paid for
full-time work by UBC.
The administration suspended
animal resource ecology professor
Julius Kane for three months this
summer following allegations that
he used university computers to
keep track of his real estate
business and to store a novel he
was writing.
Kenny denied charges that the
administration moved too slowly in
dealing with the incidents. The
Finn case was detailed in the press
in February but Finn did not resign
until September.
"Due process has to be shown in
an institution. Then you proceed
with due haste and due caution,"
Kenny said.

he added.
Young Socialist spokeswoman
Joanne Clifton said as many
candidates as possible will be
fielded from their group.
Arts undergraduate society

member of the women's committee, said the committee will
field a female candidate for the

She said the committee will
actively support candidates who
have women's rights as part of
their platforms.
Sihota said his chances of winning the election for chancellor
against J. V. Clyne are not good.
"This is a tongue-in-cheek
situation because my chances of
winning are a billion to one,"
Sihota said.
Sihota said he will run on the
platform of stressing a strong
humanities program at UBC,
promoting new facilities for
rehabilitation medicine students
and improved government funding.
He said his experience on the

with the government are his

Time to finish
S. Africa stake
The other day we blasted the student representative
assembly for being unable to take a stand on anything. Today
we give the SRA an opportunity to end this year's dismal
record.
The Alma Mater Society, like other student groups across
Canada, is being challenged to pull their money out of banks
that invest in South Africa, such as the Bank of Montreal,
and put the money into credit unions or banks which don't
have a stake in apartheid, such as the Bank of Nova Scotia or
the Bank of B.C.
The National Union of Students recently passed a motion
calling for its members to pull their money out of the B of M,
the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce, the Royal Rank
and the Toronto Dominion Bank. The University of
Manitoba student union is currently considering such an
action.
After an earlier editorial, Stuart Clark of the R of M's SUB
branch tried to rationalize the South African investments on
the grounds that exploitation occurs everywhere. Replies in
last week's letter's pages showed that the B of M's arguments
don't stand up.
It may be a bit awkward, but the closure of large accounts
like the AMS's would force the B of M and its cohorts to
reconsider its stake in poverty, bloodshed, death and
dictatorship in South Africa.
It's poster time
We noticed that the UBC Progressive Conservatives are
heavily advertising the upcoming visit of their federal leader,
Joe Clark. At the same time, the UBC Liberals are advertising
their upcoming presentation of movies by Monty Python's
Flying Circus.
We couldn't sum up today's political situation better if we
tried.

CSA answers Taiwan charges
Re: Stop the fence-sitting letter on Friday."The
political ambivalence toward China and Taiwan of
Chinese students — particularly those from Hong
Kong — often hidden behind claims of 'ethnic,
historical and cultural times' reflects a materialist
insecurity."
This sta tement by Anne Yee reflects a growing lack
of understanding and misconceived dissatisfaction
among many people.
The flaw in this generalization can perhaps be
illustrated in thefollowing parallelism: "the culinary
preference to rice of the Chinese students — particularly those from Hong Kong — often hidden
behind claims of 'ethnical, historical and cultural
times' reflects a materialistic insecurity towards
steaks, escargots, etc."
The flaw in my paraUelism is apparent: many
people in this world prefer rice to steaks (such as
Moslems) and escargots (such as anybody who
doesn't enjoy French cuisine), but not because they
are "Chinese students — particularly those from
Hong Kong."
To bring back the point: many people are
materialistically insecure, but Hong Kong students
are definitely not the only culprits. Most students who
are self-supporting are somewhat materialistically
insecure; to extend this point further, the average
Canadian can also feel the pinch of materialistic
insecurity.
The truth is, Hong Kong students feel insecure
because they are new in Canada. Similarly, immigrants from other countries and immigrants from
other provinces would also feel insecure.
In short, new immigrants are materialistically
insecure not because of where they are from, but
because of where they are at.
"Chinese students are unwilling to accept the
reality of China." Another sweeping generalization,
and it just happens to be untrue.
The executive of the Chinese Students Association
is fully aware of the reality of China (by the way, the
term "third-world" is, I think, downgrading).
Nevertheless, we are also fully aware of the reality of
Taiwan, with its millions of people of Chinese origin,
governed by a political party that claims to be the
rightful government of China.
The fact: there has been and are two major
political parties in China, the Communist Party and
the Kuomintang; they formed their own respective
governments. One is active in the geographical China
using the name "People's Republic of China;" the
other chose the name "Republic of China."
Both consider Taiwan as a province; both accept
only one China. For us to ignore either Taiwan or
China is a mistake of narrow-minded arrogance. If a
student wants to find out more of the reality, and
perhaps choose a linkage reflecting his own personal
ideal, he should examine this conflict objectively
through information directly from the sources of
conflict (which is what CSA is trying to provide) and
through personal observations (which is what the
individual would do for oneself).
CSA does not and cannot choose political
comradeships for the individual.
"Student funds should not subsidize Taiwanese
films." This is a totally false accusation.
The executive committee of CSA has never used
student funds to subsidize Taiwanese films. In fact,
what the movie patrons have paid for goes toward the
rental fee of the projection booth in the auditorium
and the service charges of the projectionist. We have
never paid any monies toward films originating from
either Taiwan or China.
"CSA's claims that it tries to promote a 'Chinese-
Canadian culture' are hollow indeed." This point is a
matter of opinion of some individuals.
If they consider only those people who are born in
Canada as the rightful owners of the title Chinese
Canadians, then they are frightfully hollow indeed;
the culture that accounts for the backgrounds of the
new Chinese Canadians is as valid as any other integral parts of the Chinese Canadian culture.
Nevertheless, we are aware of the need to know
more about the past and present of the Chinese in
Canada. Consequently, in our Chinese festival '77, we
presented China's influence on Chinese Canadians
and stereotyping: misunderstanding China, a talk by
Bing Thom. Also, we intend to further promote all
facets of Chinese Canadian culture.
The lecture series we ran last year will be repeated
in the spring term. We also welcome ideas and topics;
most of all, we welcome people with ideas to come
forth and devote his/her time toward the community
of Chinese Canadians on campus. Our Chinese
Festival '77 should prove ourself not to be an instrument of any governments.
Why should there be any cloak-and-dagger interactions between Chinese Canadians that are born
here, there or anywhere?
Allan Li
president, CSA
Williams changes pro-gay stance
The article on the front page of
the Nov. 4 Ubyssey entitled God
loves homosexuals, too, was a
fairly accurate account of the
greater part of Don Williams'
lecture in Hebb Theatre the
previous day. It would appear,
however, that the reporter was
unable sit through the entire lecture and the question period
following, for if she had, or attended the Friday night lecture as I
had also done, she would have left
with an entirely different picture of
the reverend's attitude.
In an abrupt change of tone from
the earlier part of the lecture,
Williams baldly asserted, to the
shock of many, that homosexuals
can and should be cured. He
confidently assured us that
homosexuality finds its origins in
what is less than desirable and that
it was not part of God's plan. Once
a homosexual had accepted Christ
and beenborn again, he should also
strive to become a heterosexual.
Williams attempted to refute the
prevalent opinions of the gay
community and the psychiatric
and psychological professions that
homosexuality is not an illness,
and that in most cases working for
a change of sexual orientation is
less practical and desirable than
helping the homosexual accept his
sexual orientation.
As his proof that homosexuality
is curable, Williams cited an unpublished study he said he was told
of personally by Masters of
Masters and Johnson who claimed
an 80 per cent rate of change after
just two weeks of therapy.
All the participants were
married homosexuals with the
support of their partners and,
according to Williams had "a deep
desire and commitment to
change." Obviously such unverified therapy, conducted on a
limited group of individuals as
confused and under pressure
regarding their sexual orientation
as these "married homosexuals"
were is of dubious value.
Howeffective and permanent the
"cure" was, and how happy those
"cured" are, is also open to
question. As it now stands there is
absolutely no evidence that there is
a sure-fire "cure" for
homosexuality, any more than
there is a "cure" for
heterosexuality, or that such
"cures" are desirable.
Don Williams' message to the
homosexuals was that "you don't
have to spend the rest of your life
trapped and frustrated."
My answer to you, Don Williams,
is that I am a very happy and
satisfied gay Christian and feel
pity for you that you view me as
such a threat and feel so uncomfortable with your
homophobia.
Williams would have us believe
that the whole merry issue of
homosexuality had been forced on
the church by the strident voices of
gay liberation and militant gay
Christians. The truth is, it is not
gays who are making the issue, but
self-righteous straight Christians
who refuse to acknowledge that
"God is no respecter of persons,
but in every nation he that feareth
him, and worketh righteousness, is
accepted with him."
In dealing with the church's
response to homosexuals, Williams
declared that the church should not
tolerate homosexuality and
recognize that the work of the Holy
Spirit and the believing community
is the greatest agent of change (of
homosexual orientation).
In revealing a narrow-minded,
self-righteous attitude at the end of
his lecture he denied the sincerity
of his earlier, liberal-sounding
assertions that God loves
homosexuals as much as he does
heterosexuals and "homosexuals
were made in the image of God;
Jesus Christ came for
homosexuals, etc.'^
As one gay in Friday's audience
told Williams, he did not feel any
love for him in what Williams said
and felt only  alienation. I agree.
The sympathy and support
Williams is touting is not true
Christian love and brotherliness
when it has the underlying ulterior
motive of pressing for a change in
sexual orientation and cannot
accept an individual as he is and
seeGod'smancreatedinhis image
and likeness.
William's attitudes, if generally
adopted by the Christian community, will only deepen the
growing rift between gays and
their churches — a separation that
will be a bitter loss for both sides.
I hope and pray to God that Don
Williams and others who hold his
views may be healed of the
homophobia he admonishes other
Christians to repent of.

Just a note of acknowledgment
for your front-page coverage of our
cosmic representative in your Nov.
10 issue. Captain Zeron sends you
his compliments.
For my part I was rather intrigued by your observation that
CITR actually has two regular
listeners. This admission is quite a
leap forward in negotiations
between our station and your
publication. Two years ago The
Ubyssey would not have admitted
that we had any listeners at all.
I was further interested to find
that one of our listeners according
to your sources is a deaf residence
attendent. Truly, if CITR is
capable of actually reaching the
ears of the deaf this is a milestone
in communication, especially since
there is no record so far of a blind
person being able to read The
Ubyssey.

Resistance to Chile junta grows
By DAVID FULLER
Since the fascist coup in Chile in
1973, we have heard quite a lot
about the political prisoners,
tortures, and steadily worsening
conditions of the Chilean people
under the brutal Pinochet regime
established by the U.S. imperialists.
However, very little has been
said in the Canadian media about
the steadily growing, organized
resistance to the fascist regime by
the Chilean people.
There are many examples of the
resistance of the Chilean people,
both spontaneous, and more and
more, organized by the People's
Front of Chile. The spontaneous
struggles have always had very
definite objectives or reforms
behind them — for instance
struggles for more water in
various districts, refusal to pay
electrical bills, etc.
Some of these have taken on a
more direct political character —
such as the fight for the liberation
of political prisoners, "missing"
prisoners, instances where 300 to
400 youths signed a declaration
demanding liberty and democracy.
Women have played a prominent
role in such struggles, in a hunger
strike to liberate political
prisoners, demonstrations in the
churches, in the courts and in the
streets.
The more organized resistance
struggles include strikes of the coal
workers and of the steel workers,
for example.
But it is organization which is the
weakness in Chile — and it is this
question which the people's front is
slowly resolving. The orientation of
the people's front is to gradually
enhance the level of combativeness
of the people in order to finally
arrive at the people's armed
struggle.
For example, when the junta
tried to sell a plant which had been
nationalized by the Popular Unity
government, but could find no
buyers because it was in such bad
shape, the junta tried to sell it to
the plant's workers. The military
even enlisted the president of the
union, a sellout, in this manoeuvre.
So a group of workers belonging
to the people's front analyzed this
situation and decided to denounce
this farce and to prevent it. They
printed a leaflet explaining the
issue and denouncing the sellout
and thetraitors. The military junta
did not succeed in getting the
workers to fall into their trap.
Other struggles organized by the
people's front are in the univer-
sities,   against   the   tuition   fees

student who is helping organize the
tour of people's front member

(formerly there were none) and for
a good training, for example.
The people's front was born at a
time when there was a diffusion of
the general mass movement; at a
time when there was a great
dispersion of force among all the
member parties and all the leaders
that had been outspoken during the
Popular Unity government of
President Salvador Allende, and
who subsequently went into exile.
In April 1974, the Revolutionary
Communist Party (RCP) of Chile
organizations among the
professors. In addition there is the
Front of Anti-Fascist Artists; and
among the working class, which is
the most important sector, there
are the workers' committees.
These committees are clandestine,
working as well within the illegal
unions. There are moreover, a
large number of unions, legal and
illegal, which adhere to the politics
of the people's front.
There is also the Nucleus for
University Resistance, which has
perspectives
launched a call to the Chilean
people for the formation of another
people's        front. Various
organizations are presently
members of the people's front.
Among the most important are the
various resistance committees at
the base (existing either at local or
city level) which organize
propaganda and support, and
encourage all the forms of struggle
against the dictatorship.
Then there are the anti-fascist
committees of the professors
which constitute the only united
led the recent struggles of the
university students, and the
peasant committees which have
led struggles in Colchagua. There
are the committees of the people's
front itself, which constitute the
direct organization of the people's
front. The people's front is not a
political party, nor a screen to hide
any party.
The people's front works with
anyone who is against the junta
and who has never supported the
junta. Currently, there is a
manoeuvre by the U.S. and some

former open supporters of the
junta, headed by Christian
Democratic Party leader Frei, to
remove the Pinochet government
and replace it with a supposedly
"democratic" government headed
by Frei.
Ihe people's front is opposed to
this fraud, and for good reasons.
Frei spent six years in government
office during which time several
massacres in 1966, 1967 and 1969
were carried out against workers
and students in Santiago and other
mining cities. This same Frei was
at the head of the entire reactionary and fascist offensive
during  the Allende  government
and is the same person who right
after the coup gave his most
resolute assistance to Pinochet.
The tragic experience of the
Chilean people has a universal
lesson: reformist politics, such as
the Allende regime's, is completely
bankrupt, and fascism is the
natural conclusion of the political
line of the' 'parliamentary road" to
socialism.
Anyone friendly to the resistance
in Chile is invited to a meeting in
SUB 205 at 12:30 p.m. on Wednesday. A representative of the
People's Front of Chile, Camilo
Maturana, will discuss the current
state of the resistance.

A statement from&vs Co-operative Christian Campus Ministry by its
chairperson, Bev Currie.
Throughout the past year our group has engaged in a process of self-
education around the issue of South Africa and Canadian banks. After
consulting with groups and persons inside South Africa and groups
who have done research on the interconnection of Canadian Bank
loans and the maintenance of the structure of oppressive rule there,
we have decided to remove our funds from the banks which engage in
lending money to South Africa.
We therefore invite the Alma Mater Society, other student groups
and the university community at large to remove their funds from
banks that support South African apartheid, and to inform the bank as
to why.
We do this because it is clear to us, after much discussion and
research, that the South African government is a unique and particularly clear example of racial injustice and inhumanity. By
economic support the banks help maintain that structure that denies
full human rights to the majority of South Africa.
Therefore we call upon the university community to join with us and
other student groups across Canada. We suggest the AMS consider
and act upon the following motion:
Whereas: Certain Canadian banks are known to lend and invest
money-into the economy of South Africa, and, whereas: The implication of this is to support the current government in South Africa
and its apartheid policies, therefore be it resolved that the AMS and its
member groups transfer as much of its liquid assets as possible to
financial institutions which do not lend money to South Africa.

Whyte sinks Rowers in rugby
By TOM BARNES
After trailing for much of the
game the Thunderbird rugby
team, spurred on by wing David
Whyte's 20 second-half points, took
charge late in the game to turn
back the Vancouver Rowing Club
30-14 in Vancouver Rugby Union
first division play Saturday afternoon at UBC's Wolfson Field.
All told Whyte accounted for 26
points for the 'Birds.
The win boosted UBC's record to
four wins in five starts in first
division play and gives them the
inside track as the race for the
Tisdale Cup turns down the home
stretch.
"I was happy to see the way we
came back in the second half,"
said Thunderbird coach Donn
Spence. "Our passing wasn't very
good, especially in the first half.
We had the opportunities and the
overlaps but bad passes were
stopping our rushing."
The UBC forwards were beaten
badly in the first half and on set
scrums they were pushed around.
The Rowers played tight and
disrupted any attempts at
cohesiveness the 'Birds could
muster.
But it was a miscue in the UBC
backfield that led to the first
Rowing Club try as a string of

UBC came fourth.
hospital passes, with Whyte the
final victim, gave the Rowers
possession inside UBC's 22-metre
line for an uncontested run for a try
which was converted.
Whyte brought the 'Birds back
into a tie with two penalty kicks.
Shortly before the half the Rowers
took a brief lead when a fine 50-
metre four-man rush netted an unconverted try. But UBC prop Ian
Busfield took the kickoff the length
of the field before yielding the ball
to flanker Bill Collins, who got the
try as the half ended.
Shortly into the second half
Whyte put the 'Birds in front 13-10
with a penalty kick. The rowers
battled back and were rewarded
with a try on a cross-field kick off a
five-metre scrum. From that point,
the Rowers dominated for more
than 15 minutes, keeping the ball in
the vicinity of the UBC 22-metre
line.
Whyte then scored his first try,
intercepting a pass ne/tr the
sidelines and winning an 80-metre
dash to score. If that didn't turn the
game around a missed Rowing
Club penalty goal from directly in
front of the posts a minute later
did.
Ten minutes later the Thunderbirds scored again as prop Dennis
Carson got the ball from a lineout
and threw a screen pass across the
field to centre Andrew Bibby to
start a backfield movement which
Whyte capped off for his second
try. Before time ran out Whyte
added another try, this time set up
by number eight Robin Russel, and
a penalty kick and a convert.
In the latter part of the half the
'Birds' dominance was built on the
vastly improved play of the pack.
The fitness and growing cohesion
of the forwards produced a complete reversal of the first half. In
the scrums the Rowers were
pushed back and UBC took most of
the loose ball.
"I think the biggest difference
was that we were diving over the
loose ball on the ground. We
weren't doing that in the first half
and it cost us possession," said
Spence.
The 'Birds find themselves in
second place following Saturday's
games. The Capilanos are in first
with nine points, one ahead of UBC,
but the Thunderbirds hold two
games in hand.
In other games over the
weekend, the Ex-Brits beat the
Meralomas 20-6, Kats beat the Old
Boys 13-12 and the Capilanos
defeated the Trojans 20-9.

THE        UBYSSEY
Page 7
Puck 'Birds
sweep pair
A hardhitting UBC Thunderbird
hockey team, lifted by a quick-
change defence, evened its record
at 3-3 with a double win over the
University of Saskatchewan on the
weekend.
UBC scored at will in a 9-1 rout
Friday night at the Winter Sports
Centre. The 'Birds won 2-1
Saturday in a contest in which
Huskies goalie Brian Hepp kept the
visitors in the game, stopping 45
shots.
On goals by Tom Blaney and Rob
Jones, the 'Birds took a two-goal
leadafter two and one-half minutes
of Friday's game. The first-period
blitz continued as Sean Boyd
scored and Jones scored his second
of a three-goal performance. Greg
Wiebe replied with the Huskies
only goal.
"We are using three defensive
pairings," said UBC coach Bert
Halliwell.
The 'Birds went with three
forward and three defensive lines
in both games, instead of the four
and two system they have been
using.
"Ihis is the first time we played
the whole game with consistency,"
said  Halliwell.
Halliwell said UBC was using a
new forechecking system, which
he refused to divulge.
"I am not going to tell you what it
is because the other teams might
find out," he said.
The Huskies must have partly
caught on to the secret formula in
the second, bdcause the 'Birds only
netted two goals off the sticks of
Dick Jellina and Derek Williams.
But UBC continued to check
hard, littering the ice with green-
clad gladiators turned black and
blue. Tempers wore thin, and after
Jones completed his hat trick at
3:04 of the third period, Blaney and'
Saskatchewan's Murray Benson
were sent off for fighting.
But in the penalty box the fight
resumed, triggering a melee which
held up the game for 20 minutes.
When the smoke cleared, five
players from each club were
thrown out, including Blaney,
Jones, Williams, Ross Cory and
Ted Fostey from UBC.
Blaney, who appeared to be the
instigator, saw it differently. "It
wasn't my start," the left winger
explained, after his right hand was
decorated with eight stitches.
"They were trying to intimidate
me. They were giving me cheap
shots. They tried to sucker me."
UBC received98 penalty minutes
during the game, while the Huskies
were assessed 100 minutes.
UBC goaltender Dave Fischer
played a strong game, turning
away 20shots. Brian Hepp made 33
saves for the losers.
Saturday's game was more
subdued as the 'Birds outskated
Saskatchewan, bombarding Hepp
with 46 shots.
"The score doesn't indicate the
play," said Halliwell. "Their
goalie had a hot hand. He was the
difference."
The only two pucks which eluded
Hepp were shot by Peter Moyls and
Sandy Bain.
Greg Ing beat UBC goalie Ron

Soccer game too long for UBC
By GRAY KYLES
If soccer games were only 45
minutes long the Thunderbirds'
soccer team might be enjoying a
better season in the B.C. Senior
Soccer League first division.
The 'Birds rolled over Italian-
Columbus in the first half of their
Jock shorts
Hie UBC women's rowing team
wonthree races in a weekend meet
at Green Lake near Seattle. The
four of stroke Nancy Stoess, Sandy
Harper, Nikki Valentine, Sue
Baiton and cox Jane Pavelich won
the junior heavyweight four and
placed second in the senior
heavyweight four. Other wins
came in the lightweight and
heavyweight open novice  eights.
Coach Glen Battersby was
pleased with his team's performance. Last year in the same
event UBC rowers failed to win any
races. The team is in the second
year of an improvement program.

The UBC wrestling team trailed
the field in two meets over the
weekend. In a dual meet Friday
the 'Bird grapplers lost 33-21 to
Athletes in Action. Craig Delahunt
won his match in the 167 lb. group.
Saturday, UBC finished last
behind Athletes in Action, North
Idaho College and the University of
Washington. The winning Athletes
finished with 52 points, well ahead
of Idaho's 42. Can't beat them and
the Lord too. Craig Delahunt took
the only UBC win.

The Thunderbird basketball
team dropped two games to the
University of Alberta Golden
Bears in Edmonton over the
weekend, losing 92-74 and 84-58.
Coach Peter Mullins blamed poor
shooting for the losses.
You usually lose when you score
fewer points than the other guys,
all right. Good quote, Peter.
For the Thunderettes it was
business as usual, as they lost 74-46
and 61-48 to the Pandas. Coach Gay
Coburn agreed it could be a long
hard season, but said the team
played better than last week
against Victoria.

The UBC men's field hockey
team all but clinched first place in
the Vancouver Men's League with
a 3-2 win over Jokers A in first-
division play Saturday. UBC leads
India by four points, but the latter
has two games in hand. Alan Hob-
kirk scored twice for the 'Birds.
league match Saturday at Thunderbird Stadium but almost conceded the game in the second.
It was only through the efforts of
goalkeeper Kelly McKnight that
they were able to hang onto a 1-1 tie
and pick up their first point since
Sept. 14.
The 'Birds came out with an
aggressive offence for the first
time this year and played their
best soccer of the season in the first
half. But they shouldn't have
bothered returning for the second
half.
Ronnie Elder, who played a
strong game, scored the UBC goal
in the fifth minute from an indirect
free kick by Kenny Garrett after
Columbus had fouled.
The 'Birds came alive after the
goal and forced play into the
Columbus end. When the Italians
were able to move up the field the
UBC defence covered them well.
McKnight was sharp throughout
the first half but made an unfortunate mistake in the fortieth
minute which gave Columbus |he
equalizer.
After making a good save on a
hard shot from the right side McKnight knocked the ball onto the
foot of Columbus forward Mike
McLeod. McLeod batted the ball
past the 'keeper before he had a
chance to get in position.
"It was an unfortunate
mistake," UBC coach Joe Johnson
said after the game. "I guess he
felt he had to play the ball but it
went the wrong way. I can't fault
Kelly though, he played very well
for us."
During the second half McKnight
came up with a series of great
saves which foiled the Columbus
attack. The 'Birds' defence was too
disorganized to help and the offence appeared to have run itself
into the ground.
The major chore facing Johnson
now is to build up team stamina to
the point where his squad can play
top-notch soccer for a full 90
minutes.
The 'Birds next game is against
Dover Olympics, one of the
strongest clubs in the league, at
Thunderbird Stadium on Dec. 3.

their programs and aims to meet
the program qualifications next
year.
Students will be selected according to their grade percentage,
and motivation said Bond. Grade
percentage will be calculated on an
equation based on the students'
mid-term, Christmas exams and
high school marks.
The student's background in
either paid or unpaid work will also
be taken into consideration, Bond
said.
The program will run for a
minimum of 13 weeks after classes
are out and will provide the
students with summer employment as well as an opportunity
to explore their area of interest
without a long-term commitment.
Once accepted, the student will
have the opportunity to continue in
the program for the next two
consecutive summers.
Employers participating in the
co-operative program will
establish the date they want to
interview students on campus and
indicate the number and type of
students they require, she said.
Students in the program will
attend a series of mini-workshops
concerning curriculum resumes
and interview techniques.
PANGO-PANGO (UNS) — This
tiny island kingdom was rocked
Monday by revelations that
perennial blorg representative
Banal Bleaters, is running for reelection for the thirtieth time in his
yawn career.
"I have discovered that running
for elective office has nothing
whatsoever to do with politics,"
Bleaters explained.
Bleaters may or may not face
opposition from arch-conservative
Arsewhole Headstrong, director of
inconveniences Save Piles, constitutional finder Rave Blare-em,
and second banana Pale Can-do.
Candidates recoiled in horror
when an early rumor shook this
kingdom that press moguls Tripe
Flogging and Shrill Spielman
would run on a liquor-oriented
dereliction platform.
Bond said the candidates will
then be interviewed by participating employers on campus.
There will be no subsidy for the
program by the university or the
government and the employer will
be paying the student according to
the normal work pay scale, said
Bond.
Faculty advisors on the program
will visit the student at least once
during the summer, she said.
The advisors, employers and
students will submit evaluation
forms to assist the coordinators in
program improvements.
The employer evaluations will be
used by the students as recommendations for future jobs.
"This program will increase the
number of qualified women in the
faculties of applied science and
forestry and increase the number
of women graduates working in
these fields," Bond said.
"I really want equal opportunities for men and women
within this program," Kozak said.
"Women in the department of
forestry are fairly recent; we
didn't have any until the 1970s, now
there is a total of 34 women undergraduates and eight graduates,"
he said.
