No place for
child's play
By KELLEY JO BURKE
V/orae up sometime and I'll show
you around. You'll see warm, happy faces
tilled with lots of love and caring."
Mab Oloman seems to like her work.
She co-ordinates the UBC campus
daycare societies. Her own children are in
daycare, and she firmly believes that they
profit as much as she does as a working
mother by their presence there.
"They gain a peer group, the caring and
company of other parents, skilled
teachers, a whole community."
If that idyllic vision seems in sharp contrast to the following descriptions,
remember this; children are adaptable as
hell. Give them a stick and it becomes a
magic wand, a shepherd's crook, the entire rhythm section of the New York
Philharmonic. Give them dilapidated
huts, and they become a second home.
"They were never planned to be used by
children. The steps are too high for the little ones to climb, the windows too high to
see out of, the toilets too high to use
unaided."
"You can't keep it clean anymore,
they're so old. They're dirty, dingy."
"The radiators that heat the place are
40 years old. Either it's 100 degrees
farenheit or 40 below.The lighting is poor
and just as old."
"The plumbing breaks down once every
couple of weeks. When we ask the
physical plant people to fix it, it takes
them a day to get here, and then they say
'Why should we fix this stuff? It's useless.
These buildings have to be torn down.'
"That's just great, after you've spent
weeks working on some kid's toilet-
training.
"There's the mildew, the bugs — oh,
and don't forget the mice in the attic."
Those comments are all from supervisors of the nine campus daycares housed
in World War II army huts. They all agree
with Oloman. Under scandalous conditions, they are managing to provide decent facilities for UBC's children. The
parents who form the societies paper,
paste, and build around the aging
buildings. The teachers adapt to the inadequate space, and adult-intended structures.
They have to. There's a tremendous demand on campus for daycare. Oloman
said earlier this month that the campus
day care could easily do with twice the
facilities. The waiting lists for the various
daycares is almost always as many
children again as do get in.
Daycare came out as second priority in
the recent Alma Mater Society building
fee referendum. The $50,000 already promised to them by the AMS will never be
seen by the daycares. It will go straight to
the UBC administration, to help cover a
$200,000 loan made to the societies to
cover upgrading the buildings to meet
minimum fire safety standards.
That means fire-proofing walls, increasing the number and quality of fire exits,
and installing fire alarms. Mice and bugs
may scare some kids, but they don't pose
the same threat as a fire in the small huts
would.
The provincial fire marshall would have
closed Dec. 31, if the money for renovations had not appeared. The societies are
solely supported by member parents' fees.
Many of the parents themselves can barely
manage to pay the fees. Two hundred
thousand dollars worth of renovations
was quite beyond them, and conventional
sources of donations, Vancouver Institute, alumni, etc., seemed to have dried
up.
"What is really needed," according to
Nathan Divinsky of the President's Council on Daycare, "Is a whole new facility.
The loan from the administration will buy
a patch job. A new facility will cost a
million. We ain't got a million."
Neither do the parents. Or the AMS. Or
the alumni. And the government of
British Columbia, busily chipping away at
education at the elementary, secondary,
and post-secondary level, could not be expected to be overly sympathetic to the
private societies.
Certain parents do get their daycare
fees subsidized by the ministry of Human
Resources, if they don't work too much,
or get paid too much, if they're single
parents, or if they have too many kids.
Also if only one of a two parent family is a
student.
One of the parents at Canada Goose
Daycare told supervisor Liz Aubin that
human resources had refused his subsidy
on those grounds because, "Two parents
going to school leads to child abuse."
A source in the ministry said the restriction probably existed to discourage student couples from both going to school. It
also said that if it was quoted by name, it
would deny the conversation had ever
taken place. It's a rough life in the provincial government.
To increase financial difficulties, fees
for daycare of children under three have
soared because of a new regulation requiring three supervisors for every twelve
children, the maximum number allowed
with that age group. That puts care cost
up to $400/month. Older children's care
varies from $200 to $300 a month, depending on the number of children and the indoor and outdoor facilities.
"A daycare supervisor makes about
$13,000/year," Debby Savoury at Lilliput
Daycare says, "If you have no children of
your own, that about keeps you going.
It's not a lot."
"We're perceived as baby-sitters, with
no particular skills or training," "Aubin
says.
A qualified supervisor must have a two
year community college degree, or its
technical school equivalent, to care for
children four and over. An additional
year of training is now required for care of
children under three.
Daycare workers study, the primary instruction of science, social studies, math,
art, course structure and planning, administration, and parent/teacher relations.
"For the amount of education they
have, they are underpaid. They're paid
better on campus than in some daycares,
Stuart Davis photos
but they are underpaid," Oloman says.
Children who have had the benefit of
daycare enter elementary school far more
prepared for the social and learning situation, Oloman says.
"Pasting, tying shoes, cutting with
scissors, daycare kids have had a handle
on that since they were three," Aubin
says, "They've usually learned most of
their alphabet. If anything, they're a little
bored."
While UBC daycare facilities may be
physically daunting — and financially
prohibitive, the options are few and
unpleasant.
"There may be a few openings for off-
campus daycare in East Vancouver
because people are out of work, but
there's nothing available near school,"
Oloman says, "Parents who have to
withdraw their children for financial
reasons often have to turn to real babysitters. The TV often becomes the children's
only teacher."
While all the daycare workers and
parents were tremendously relieved when
the administration loaned them the funds
to remain open, Barbara Allen of Pen-
tacare Daycare is less than thrilled with
their overall attitude towards daycare.
"The university tends to assume that
they provide the facilities for daycare.
They forget that it was the parents who
petitioned to keep the buildings up, when
the university was going to scrap them.
It's the parents who put in the money and
time.
"They put out this brochure, boasting
about campus daycare, but they have
done very little for daycare.
"You put us in a brochure, you spend
money on us."
Aubin expressed similar sentiments.
"Of course the huts are rent-free. It
would be a sin to charge for them."
Wherever the money comes from, a
new facility, like the one recently constructed by the department of education
at Simon Fraser University, is desperately
needed. The major question is, when?
Government funding of some kind
seems to be the only answer. Oloman and
the daycare workers say new buildings
would be "wonderful" but they aren't
holding their breath.
"We don't regard children very highly
in this society," Aubin says. "I mean,
they're the hope of the future and all that
stuff. They're the only answer we have
coming to the world's problems."
Says Savoury, "They're kind of forgotten." Page 4
THE    UBYSSEY
/-^^^THE UBYSSEY*-*--^
Thursday, December 9,1982
Little Shaffin Shariff, better known to his friends as SS, stared
wonderousty as he walked aimlessly through the alien underbrush. Even if it
hadn't been dark, SS had no way of knowing that his alien craft had landed
in the thick of the university endowment lands (the pilots, Brian Byrnes and
Dominic Spooner, weren't too swift).
Breaking out of the bush, SS peered upon the vast lights of Vancouver.
"Ggghhrrgghhgrr," drawled the little fella in awe. As he stood there innocently aghast, other lights burst toward him, and to his horror the alien
shapes of Frances Lew, Doug Fraser, and Cary Rodin raced toward him. SS
swung his little grey body around, then began his mad dash back to his ship.
Three other cute little aliens, Donna Sanford, Jane Bartlett and Chris
Gainor, were also racing back, and were lucky enough to make it (they were,
unfortunately, somehow written out of the movie script). Monte Stewart
started the engines, and before poor SS could say "Steven Spielburg," he
was the only one of his kind in the whole of the UEL, and for that matter,
Vancouver.
Meanwhile, young Arnold Hedstrom, affectionately known to his fellow
student journalists as Idiot, was having pizza in the office with the other
aspiring scribes. It was a press day. As Muriel Draaisma and Charles Campbell furiously typed to meet deadline, little Idiot was once again sent off to
the CUP bureau office to finish his story. "And don't come back until it's
finished, penis breath," chided Keith Baldrey.
Idiot sedately headed across the expanse of the office to where the CUP
bureau office stood empty. Then, coming from the dark confines of the
mysterious cubicle, were unfamiliar sounds. Idiot, being but a rookie to the
press game, instinctively backed off instead of going in for the scoop.
"Gghhhrrrggggga," came from the dark.
Idiot looked back over his shoulder to where Pat Macleod and Jack
Tieleman were contentedly working. Deciding not to take a chance on confronting the unknown. Idiot pulled out his em ruler and gently tossed it into
the bureau. Clank, clangidy clang, he heard it go as it penetrated the depths
of the office. Idiot waited patiently. Behind him, Stephen Wisenthal continued typing as if movie history was not being made. Sure enough, Idiot's
em ruler came bounding back out of the depths. A silent shriek reverberated
through his body, and he snuck back to a distant typewriter, wondering what
secrets lurked in the depths of the CUP bureau office.
Idiot had almost finished his news story. The other staff had finished and
gone down to the printer's, all except Rick Katz, who was busy in the
darkroom. Writing had been hard for Idiot. His mind kept jumping back to
the CUP bureau. Curiosity got to him, and he bravely ventured over. Weaving through the myriad of desks, chairs, piled back issues, and other assorted
junk. Idiot searched for what he knew was there but found hard to believe.
Finding it hard to see due to the lack of enlightenment in the office, Idiot
almost stumbled upon it in the dark. Poor lost little SS was almost as surprised and as frightened as Idiot. "Aaaggghhhrrrgaga," sqwauked the little grey
guy with the round brown eyes. "Jumpin' dummy sheets," hollered Idiot as
he scampered back to his typewriter, panic-stricken."
Down at College, Chris Wong, Emilie Smith, and Joy Taylor worked on,
oblivious to Idiot's plight.
Brian Jones and Doug Schmidt were at a demonstration, and wouldn't
have cared anyway. If Glen Sanford had been sober, he might have been interested in what was happening, but along with Sarah Cox and Olivier
Moreau, he wasn't.
Getting brave. Idiot rejected what Craig Brooks and Bill Tieleman had
taught htm and moved his typewriter close to the bureau door. Stationing
himself there. Idiot finished writing his story so Robert Laing and Neil
Lucente could soon edit it. Dreaming of the wild times last weekend with Victor Wong and Peter Berlin, Idiot began to doze. His head sagged and came
to rest on the keys, which were still warm.
"Huh, what . . . did somebody say 'I, Kerry Regier'," mumbled Idiot as he
was awakened by a faint shuffling noise in the bureau. Sitting up and rubbing
his eyes. Idiot once again laid his gullible little eyes upon . . . SS.
'hhggggaararar?" said the smaller, cuter one. Idiot gaped in wonder. SS
shuffled a few feet closer. Only the image of Robby Robertson could have instilled more fear in little Idiot's heart.
SS came closer still. Suddenly fear left Idiot as SS slowly handed him the
bunch of copy paper Idiot had spread around the ofice in an attempt to lure
out the mysterious creature. Idiot realized then who and what SS was, and
their similarities were striking. For, Idiot realized, little SS was also a student
journalist, but one from a distant, alien place.
"If only Ikki Yappi, Kelley Jo Burke and Monika Fruehe were here to see
this," Idiot thought to himself as he led SS back to his desk on the far side of
the office. But they, like Harry Hertscheg, Nancy Campbell and Greg
Fjetland, were doing layout down on Terminal avenue.
(Julie Wheelwright, Lisa Morry, Paul Kaihla, Glen Schaeffer, Steve McClure, Robert Beynon, Verne McDonald, Alison Hoens, and David
Balderstone were disappointed at the theme chosen for this year-end
masthead and requested that their names be left out. As such they have been
ignored and set to watch E.T. reruns).
And did Idiot ever regret leaving SS alone at his desk that day as went off
in pursuit of a story. Damned if the little bastard didn't decide to get cute and
dig into the staff's drug supply (yes, drugs — the truth didn't make it onto
celluloid). Unfortunately for Idiot, SS had a very strange nervous system
which transmitted his feelings and experiences onto his close friends. As SS
flew high on LSD, Idiot's head began to spin and he imagined that he saw
Eric Eggertson skydiving over SUB. Growing ever more stoned, Idiot raced
back to room 241k and pushed both doors wide open.
"Run. Run for your lives," he shouted to Raoul Duke and Phillip Kueber.
"You're free, free," he slurred as Angie Gerst and Dan Treisan bolted for the
door and liberty. SS turned and banged his head on news desk, and Idiot
tripped over the escaping hordes. "Thank you SS. Thank you Idiot," thanked Peter Prongos and millions of others. Timothy Foyle just rolled his eyes.
Being somewhat of ah unselfish kid. Idiot decided to introduce the rest of
the staff to SS (after the effects of the LSD wore off, of course).
"Hi SS," said an always friendly Stu Murray. "How ya doin' SS?" chipped
in Lisa Lois. This was quite a difference from the unbelieving banter of only a
short while ago, Idiot thought to himself. But the staff accepted SS as one of
their own. They even dressed him up as an earthly journalist, UBC style, and
took him out for the rounds. With notepad under arm, SS wandered the
campus at will, going unnoticed by the thousands of students who populate
the home of this rather lengthy and questionable plot. At one point SS saw a
student he thought he recognized, but it turned out to be only Jennifer
Hyndman. "Quote," SS would cutely quip as he pointed at passing
students.
Sadly, Bev Olds and Mike Grey did not keep a close enough eye on SS,
and he wandered off on his own to cover a student council meeting. After a
few hours, John Mann got worried, so he sent Diana Livingstone off in
search of the little tyke. In an obscure SUB hallway, SS was found lying face
down on an old copy of The Ubyssey. "SS!" shouted Richard Thomas as he
ran to the stricken special effects mechanism. Barely alive, SS lifted his
scrawny head out of the filth just enough to mutter "SS, phone home." A
kindly Corinna Sundararagen bent over and picked him up, the poor spindly
mass barely breathing. With Alan Millen, she rushed back to the office,
where the rest of the staff tried to no avail to revive their latest star.
Just then, the state kicked in the door. "Macho pigs," commented a bitter
Scott Pitterdrogh. Spreading plastic everywhere, the boys in white sterilized
the abode and kicked out everyone but SS and Idiot. Laying them out on
tables, the well-meaning doctors (aren't they always?) tried desperately to
save SS's journalistic career. "SS . . . SS!" moaned a weak and acted-out
Idiot. "I'm sorry, he's dead," said a voice from the state as all the people
wearing gloves left the room on cue. "Shit," said Idiot as he realized the
chances for a sequel were quickly fading.
Suddenly SS's wide brown eyes opened and he once again started
mumbling something about phoning home. Must still be the effects of the
LSD, thought Idiot as he carried SS outside and stuffed him into his bike carrier. Off he pedalled, the state in close pursuit and Emma shouting encouragement from the balcony. Miraculously eluding both police and film
critics with good judgment, Idiot and SS made it safely to a field they had
travelled to late one earlier night (gads, this is jetting as bad as the movie).
Down upon them came SS's spaceship, ready to take him ome. Idiot and
SS enjoyed one last friendly embrace. "Id-eee-ott," whispered a coyly blinking SS in a last attempt to be sentimental. "Goodbye SS, goodbye," said a
tearful Idiot as his friend climbed aboard in preparation to leave, forever. And
then it went . The ship lifted, stalled a moment, then zoomed across the
heavens, taking SS back to his origins. Walking sadly away, a distraught
Idiot was heard mumbling to himself, "If that little piece of wrinkled sponge
wins an Academy award I'll rip out his eyelashes one by one."
Back in the office. Idiot put SS out of his mind and began thinking of life in
Ottawa.
And SS lived happily ever after at the movies. Poor Shaffin.

custody kids
By ERIC EGGERTSON
V^-hildren in British Columbia can rest
easy. The family court system and Family
Relations Act are both geared toward helping kids caught in a custody battle. Hey,
kids, B.C. is looking out for your best interests.
The only problem is, not everyone can
agree on what's best for kids in that situation. And there have been significant
reductions in funding for children's legal
aid. So children will find most decisions
being made for them, and will have little
recourse in court.
The odd catch-22 of custody trials is
that kids aren't recognized as being old
enough to decide which parent to live with
until they're 12 years old. Kids over 12 are
only eligible for independent legal counsel
"in exceptional circumstances."
In most custody disputes the focus is on
what is best for the child. If custody of the
child can't be agreed upon within the
family, the family court system steps in
and tries first to settle the problem out of
court, and if that fails to make sure the
child ends up with the most suitable
parent or guardian.
"When custody matters are before the
courts, the judge will disregard the feelings and rights of both parents and look
solely to the interests of the child," writes
Vancouver lawyer Jane Auxier in the Self-
counsel Press book Marriage and Family
Law in British Columbia.
If there is any question about which is
the most suitable parent for the child, the
judge can have a family court counsellor
make a custody report. The counsellor interviews the child, the parents, and any
relatives, friends or teachers who might
have a knowledgeable opinion on the
child's welfare.
Vancouver family court counsellor
Mary Murray stresses that the child is
given every opportunity to speak out, but
is not forced to become involved in the
process. "We don't want to push
anything on them. Most kids don't want
to be involved in the decision and want
their parents to make up their minds," she
says.
"The children have a right to be heard.
They can get in touch with a counsellor if
they have a strong opinion one way or
another," Murray says. "We'll listen to
what they have to say."
For most cases, a custody report either
convinces the parents to settle out of
court, or gives a judge sufficient information on the child's wishes to take those into consideration. But there are exceptions.
When the parents become too embroiled in their own fight to worry about the
child, that child needs independent
representation. Since 1974 there have been
provisions for an independent family advocate to step in and plead the child's case
in custody hearings.
An advocate would normally be called
in "where there are extreme differences
between partners and high-powered
lawyers on each side — where the child's
interests are not going to be looked
after," says Surrey family court
counsellor Sally Merchant. The advocate
is the child's last chance to be heard in a
custody proceeding.
The provincial ministry of the attorney-
general has traditionally paid the costs
when a family advocate is called in. In
April the attorney-general's office announced cuts in family court services, including the appointment of family advocates. The ministry's guidelines state
that no family advocates will be appointed
in matters respecting the interest and
welfare of a child 12 years or older, unless
the case is highly exceptional.
Comments Steve Owen, Vancouver
director of the Legal Services Society:
"My perception is that they're not finding
anything highly exceptional." So children
over 12, who are most likely to have a
strong opinion on which parent they want
to live with, must face the family court
system by themselves. Legal counsel is
available to them only in exceptional circumstances. And when advocates are used, "there are severe limits on the amount
of time they can spend preparing tor
cases," Owen says.
The system purportedly set up to serve
the best interests of children doesn't have
the funding to protect children from the
worst custody cases.
Susan Penfold is a child psychiatrist
who worked with the Berger Commission
on family and children's law. She works
with children involved in custody
disputes. Although she recognizes the
good work done by family court
counsellors, she sees the need for more
emphasis on children's rights.

Government shows childish lack of restraint
TBy CARY RODIN
he leading cause of death and
injury for children under the age of
five in Canada is automobile accidents, says Dr. Ronald Sax, assistant health officer for the Vancouver health department.
Each year about 70 deaths and
4,000 injuries to children under five
years old result from Canadian
motor vehicle accidents, Sax says.
"The use of proper infant and
child car seats will prevent 90 per
cent of those deaths and 73 per cent
of injuries."
Despite these statistics, current
British Columbia seat belt legislation does not require children under
five to wear seat belts. Only 15 per
cent of children's parents and guardians voluntarily use child car
restraints, says Sandra Kalmakoff,
a research assistant with the health
department.
But seat belt legislation amendments are expected to include
children under five by early next
spring, says John Phillips, director
of administration and safety in the
transportation ministry.
Although the seat belt amendment is welcome, the Ministry of
Transportation is being criticized by
many for taking too long in bringing about this change.
Rosemary Brown, NDP MLA for
Burnaby-Edmonds, has been pressing for ten years to have seat belts
mandatory for everyone, not just
people more than six years old.
"The minister (of transportation,
Alex Fraser,) is dragging his feet, I
don't see why he doesn't immediately amend the existing seat
belt legislation. For the past ten
years the government has been saying that they are doing research to
find a safe restraint to endorse, but
in the meantime thousands of
children are being killed and injured," says Brown.
The government defends this
research and the resulting delay. Effective next September every child
restraint on the market will have
passed the safety standards of
Transport Canada, says Phillips.
"Many of the car seats on the
market now are inferior products,
therefore we couldn't legislate a law
that didn't meet a standard."
However, the Planned Parenthood Association of B.C. endorses
and will rent a child car restraint
that initially came on the market in
1974. The Grace hospital women's
auxiliary endorses and sells a similar
car seat. Brown questions government's inability to accept these
recommendations  without  further
procrastination. Even one child lost
to this delay makes the
government's sluggish response
unacceptable, she says.
Although the seat belt amendment is late in coming, the government has launched an effective
public awareness campaign which is
the crucial precursor to change,
says Bobbie McLeod, a Planned
Parenthood spokesperson.
"It's the same old thing, we can't
tell people to do things until they
are aware of why they are doing
them," says McLeod.
Saskatchewan and Ontario are
currently the only provinces to have
seat belt laws covering children
under five.
The B.C. provincial government
is also coming under attack for its
policy of taxing child car seats sales.
The government is not recommending or considering a tax exemption for car seats at this time,
says Phillips, adding that such a
move would also eliminate taxation
of motorcycle helmets, steel-toed
boots and other safety wear.
"It seems absurd that an individual can buy his or her child a
baseball cap tax-free, but must pay
tax to protect that child from injury
or death resulting from a motor
vehicle accident," says Sax. Page 6

VOA's Boheme DOA on emotions
By ROBERT BEYNON
A carefree, starving Bohemian
poet studying in nineteenth century
Paris infatuated with an equally
Bohemian seamstress, that is
romantic.
So is the plot that characterizes
Puccini's opera, La Boheme, which
is currently given a less than emotionally satisfying production by
the Vancouver Opera Association.
La Boheme
By Giacomo Puccini
Directed by Irving Guttman
At the Queen Elizabeth theatre
At the beginning of the opera,
four hefty, middle-aged men meet
in a decrepit garret and discuss the
prospects for making money. According to the script, they are four
boisterous Parisian students who
don't care a fig for any life but an
"artist's life."
When the four depart, only
Rodolfo the poet (Vincenzo Bello)
is left behind. At this point, Mimi
(Nicole Loransel knnrtc at the
door — and almost instantly, love.
Together they muddle through 15
minutes of operatic vows.
The plot takes twists and turns
until a dying Mimi is brought to
Rodolfo. Rodolfo, on his knees,
takes Mimi's hand. The orchestra
groans. The tension cannot be
sustained forever. Rodolfo sings,
Mimi dies, the audience applauds.
The plot's inherent sexism notwithstanding, one would have liked
to enjoy the opera's oppulent emotions. But these emotions are
precisely what VOA's production
lacks.
In the first act, for example,
Bello, who plays Rodolfo, sings
lyrically and sensitively, but fails to
carry the mood. If only the performers had managed to envelope
an abandon necessary to create a
feeling of nineteenth century
romanticism, the VOA production
would have been notable.
The final gray box to ba written in 1962. Ahh . . . Soon, a relief often dreamed of but
seldom experienced in Ubyssaylend will fail over the silly fools who continue to
relentlessly pursue their ideal, their goal. What could it be. you ask? Is there a cause
that stands out among all the causes? Is is possible to come to believe in but a single
concept, an expression of concern and humanity overpowering all else? If so what
could it be? Revolution? Class struggle? Breakfast? Well, ok, breakfest is pretty
commanding. Especially freneh toast or waffles. I do love waffles. But not the
frozen ones, no, no, the real waffles, made in reel weffle irons. With syrup. Yum. But
breakfast is not the real answer, of course. The real answer is forty-two. According
to the mice.

Puppets help explain
children's ills
By ARNOLD HEDSTROM
.1? reddy is a young boy with a
lot of medical problems.
Freddy has had numerous
spinal taps and chemo-therapy
has left him bald. Tubes run out
of Freddy's nose and because of
a bad burn Freddy has skin
grafted from his left leg to his
right arm. And he's only five
years old.
When Freddy was born his left
testicle didn't descend into the
scrotum. He'll have surgery for
that soon.
But Freddy's bright orange
hair will grow back and the
bright green skin on his leg will
recover.
Freddy isn't a real little boy.
He's an important member of a
growing number of hospital
staffs.
Freddy is a professionally-
built puppet that helps children
understand what happens to
them when they go to hospitals
or have medical problems.
Freddy is a cancer puppet. He
has removable hair to show the
effects of chemo-therapy and a
spine which can be tapped.
Other medical puppets suffer
from allergies, or have
respiratory, hearing or heart
problems.
They also can be fitted with
any of about 30 features including anatomically correct
urinary apparatus and a pumping heart.
But apart from the medical
features, Freddy also has a personality. He's an emotional little
puppet that cries real tears when
he feels pain and understands
when children aren't feeling too
well. He's got a great sense of
humor. So Freddy puts his arm
around kids and tells them
what's going.
"There is a magic that happens with kids and puppets.
They identify with a puppet that
has the same illness," says Patient Puppet's marketing person
Sandra Thomson.
Medical puppets are part an
entirely new area of health care
for children called child life
therapy.
"What child life therapists try
to do is work out for children all
the emotion of being jabbed,
having cold things placed on
them, and being physically
handled. They can take away a
lot of the trauma so the experience becomes a healthy experience," says Thomson.
"It's another tool for the
medical profession to show they
aren't evil ogres," Thomson
says.
Freddy is stuffed with foam
and is a durable, double stitched
velour, built to take the heavy
use children can inflict. Apart
from demonstrating and explaining procedures, kids also
perform procedures on the puppet themselves, says Thomson.
She says you can't believe the
joy children get from pretending
the puppet is a doctor and sticking a needle in its hip.
The puppets work for children
ages three and up. Twelve year
olds are skeptical about the puppet but find it interesting to see a
working lung or a heart, Thomson says.
But recently the Canadian
Lung Association has asked Patient Puppets to build, an adult
puppet for a demonstration film
specifically aimed at senior
citizens with lung disease.
Patient Puppets is a three person operation now. Shawn Kett-
ner, a professional puppeteer,
builds all the puppets to suit the
needs and specifications of
hospital staffs.
The  company  is  looking  at
other possible uses of puppets,
too. In the future there may be
dental puppets to teach oral
hygiene. And one of the features
which soon may be incorporated
into medical puppets is a
fibreoptic nervous system for a
neurological puppet.
Patient Puppets hopes to expand its production and sales.
"The dream of the company is
to have a workshop so we could
hire old people or disabled and
pay real wages to people who
otherwise have a hard time getting jobs. Our puppeteer can use
sign language," Thomson says.
Freddy and his creators make
their home in Winnipeg but
many of Freddy's brothers and
sisters are in hospitals around
North American already helping
kids.

X-Linked   research  at  UBC
L
By LISA MORRY
Ln a small, neat laboratory on
the second floor of the
Wesbrook building, doctor Fred
Dill and a team of researchers
are unlocking the mysteries of
X-linked mental retardation.
This type of retardation is second in frequency only to
Downs syndrome, affecting
from one in 1,000 to one in 2,500
newborns in North America.
Dill explained his research on
retardation to The Ubyssey.
Marker X is a special kind of
genetic disorder which has a
distinctive satellite-like appendage on the X chromosome. It is
easily seen under a microscope,
says Dill.
Physical effects in a marker
X male are a long face with an
enlarged jaw, large ears and
overly large testes. These
characteristics vary a great deal
in their expression. Any individual could have some or all
of the abnormalities to a greater
or less degree — not depending
on intelligence.
Females,   who   are   carriers,
have normal intelligence with the
exception of a small incidence of
"dull" females, who have slightly below average intelligence.
Women don't seem to have
any of the physical traits. But
there is currently a debate
amongst academics because
some females do have slight
facial irregularities.
Dill's research at UBC focuses
on perfecting a test to detect car
rier females and a test for fetal
diagnosis. It is difficult to determine if an adult woman is a carrier of the marked chromosome
since it is seen in only 10 to 15
per cent of cells. It eludes normal test procedures in most
older women says Dill. The
marker just disappears with age.
It is easier to test males and
younger females. The test procedure involves taking a blood
MARKER X
abnormal chromosome causes retardation
sample, growing a white blood
cell culture, and photographing
chromosomes from dividing
cells.
Fetal diagnosis is more difficult — taking a blood sample
from a fetus is a dangerous and
sometimes fatal procedure, but
amniocentesis, the drawing off
of a sample of the fluid surrounding the fetus, is safer. A test involving tissue cultures from cells
suspended in amniotic fluid is
being developed at UBC.
If a reliable test can be
developed, then women in "high
risk" families can be told if they
carry the marker and then make
a decision about whether to risk
having a family, says Dill.
If a woman with abnormal
genes does decide to have a family, 50 per cent of her children
will receive this gene. Fifty per
cent of the female children will
be carriers and 50 per cent of the
male children will be retarded to
some extent, explains Dill.
Reliable prenatal diagnosis
would enable couples to decide
whether to terminate a pregnancy with a fetus which has the
marker, he says. Researchers say
they only provide the information — it is up to parents to
decide what to do with that information. Dill questioned what
is special about this situation —
people abort pregnancies for a
variety of reasons. v
But the point remains, as part
of the pro-choice / pro-life
debate, 'do people have the right
to decide to have a normal
child?' If a dependable amniocentesis test is developed, will
people abort baby girls who are
carriers, and may potentially
pass the gene on to future
generations, but are otherwise
normal?
It would also be possible to
abort a male of normal intelligence — one of the small
percentage who are unaffected
or mildly affected by retardation.
If Dill's research is successful,
an amniocentesis test will allow
women who are hesitant to have
children because the woman is a
carrier, to become pregnant with
the option to discontinue if the
X marker is detected. Page 8

Ignoring courts best solution
From page 5
"Adults' rights are given priority, especially in custody cases,"
Penfold says. "Children are not
often heard by judges, and are not
considered to have any competence
to say anything until they're 12 or
14, which isn't true."
As for the family court's concern
for the child, she says, "it's often
quite difficult to determine what the
child's best interests are."
"To implement children's rights
is quite a challenge and could be
quite costly," Penfold says. "The
courts are worried about individuals, but there isn't much of a
concern for children collectively."
In August, the attorney-general's
office slashed their funding for legal
aid in B.C. So when parents embroiled in a divorce seek free legal
representation, they're out of luck.
Costs for a lawyer start at about
$1,000 per day for family court. If a
child's parents can't afford the
court costs, they will probably settle
out of court. Their bargaining, not
the child's best interests, determines
custody.
Although the attorney-general's
office discourages the appointment
of family advocates, they would not
state publicly they will not appoint
an advocate for a child over 12.
John Morton of the attorney-
general's office family law section
would not reply to numerous phone
messages.
Older children, denied access to
an advocate, can resort to sabotage
if they disagree with a custody decision. "Children have no legal
recourse if they don't agree with the
decision," says Frank Kraemer of
the Canadian Bar Association.
"Their   rights   aren't   specifically
spelled out, but a child can still run
away to live with the other parent."
While budget restraints are affecting children's rights in B.C.
custody cases, there is still that hope
for kids. They can always ignore the
courts and determine for themselves
who gets custody of them.

EVERYTHING Y0L EVER WANTED TO KNOW ABOUT BEER
Lesson #14 "The nose"
Since beer is primarily a sensory experience,
the beer's "nose" is one of it's most important attributes.
The nose is a combination of aroma and
bouquet, caused by the beer's ingredients and the
process of fermentation.
Simply put, a beer's nose is how it smells.
A beer should always smell pure, clean and with an
identifiable presence of the appropriate malts and
hops, never sour or stale. So at Labatt's, we put a lot of
stock in a good nose. Because it's been our
experience that where quality and good taste are
concerned, the nose usually knows.

By KELLEY JO BURKE
Damn. That Elvis could sing anything.
Listen to that rendition of We Three
Kings of Orient'arr. Some kid in the
waiting-for-Santa line is asking that enduring question, "What's frankincense?'
A business-like elf hurries the litttle inquirer along. Santa is really beat, and
there's a queue of kids from Santa's
mailbox right up to the candy cane chair
itself.
Santa's got to make the kid sit, smile,
get the $3.50 ($7.50 for the double family
package) photo, and send the little dear
Dear Santa,
I would like a gas powered plane, a Battle Damaged X-Wing fighter, a
walkie/talkie, and please remember that
we're going to be in Maui again for
Christmas.
Merry Christmas.
Jimmy — I'm 6 years old.
The hand-to-hand combat is limited in
Maui, but this kid wants to be prepared.
Or try this one:
Dear Santa,
I would like:
— a toy ironing board
— a Bye-Bye Diapers Doll
— a Easy Bake Oven
— a new dress
— a Little Kitchen dishes set
Love, Madeline
This one's already for Tupperware parties, and PTA meetings.
Everybody knows that ironing a stack
of clothes, washing dishes, and changing
shitty diapers is the funnest thing in the
whole world for a girl to do. Just ask
Madeline's mom. Maddy is, by the way,
just four years old.
These are all real letters from Park
Royal's Santa's mailbox. His elf explains
that after the choice letters have been
displayed, the requests will be tabulated
by   the   mall   administration,   and   the
marketing information gleaned will be
distributed to the mall merchants. This
beats the hell out of expecting Santa to
remember what the kids ask him for.
If that seems a little devious, taking the
earnest scribblings of children under false
pretences, and turning the secrets they
reveal into weapons of advertising,
remember, Christmas can make or break a
business. There are no rules when there's
only 12 shopping days 'til Christmas.
Gerry Gorn, a researcher in
advertising's effect on children says, you
only have to watch the commercials between all those holiday specials to know
how much toy manufacturers depend on
the Christmas season.
"Just count the number of ads. Those
aren't cheap. You don't put that amount
of money into something without expecting to get a lot more back."
Selling to kids isn't all like selling to
adults, Gorn says. They have to be overwhelmed, inundated, convinced that their
life isn't worth living without a Darth
Vader combination football helmet and
respirator. Then they have to convince
Mom and Dad.
Maintaining Madeline's notions about
what little girls should play with, and Jimmy's desire for equal arms build up with
the kids in Maui are all part of that.
"You can't ask an advertiser to work
on social change," Gorn says.
But in a sense, they do. It's a viscious
Christmas wreath. Stage enough parades,
over the magic bridge back to their
moronically grinning parents.
It's a living.
The reception elf says there isn't much
in the way of qualifications required for
Santa Clausing.
"You have to look good, remember the
kids' names, be able to sit forever."
She's interrupted. A young woman has
decided that Santa is not all he's cracked
up to be, and is making for a spinning
Teddy bear in the heart of the display.
So Christmas is commercialized. That's
no big revelation. Half the Christmas
specials on television are about Christmas
having the life sucked right out of it by the
evil forces of capitalism, only to be resurrected by a true believer.
How the grinch who stole Christmas
saw a miracle on 34th street involving
Rudolph the red-nosed snowman, and
now he and Santa Claus are coming to
town bringing joy to the world (with
special guest Julie Andrews) . . . There's
so many reaffirmations of the holiday
spirit, they have to start running the
suckers the day after Remembrance Day.
But Christmas brings more than the loss
of eternal truths to the children.
Look at these letters:
hire enough reindeer, hang enough rag
dolls and tin soldiers from every available
rafter, and Christmas means Santa Claus.
Blast commercials long enough, and kids
know what Santa Claus ought to bring.
That means an advertiser can tell a kid
what they should and should not want.
These unsolicited instructors have no
vested interests in the welfare of the child,
but a hell of a lot in getting junk off the
shelves before a particular craze passes.
So they do what works.
When it does work, and Mom and Dad
cough up the cash (Sorry kids, you had to
find out sometime. There is no Santa
Claus.) the toy merchants then have the
funds to buy better reindeer and rag dolls.
And it starts over again at the
"Everything you wanted and didn't get
for Christmas" sale on December 27. It's
just that in the whole merry process, kids
may have learned things their parents
never intended them to.
If you'd rather not believe advertising
has that kind of effect, consider the
results of one of Gorn's experiments.
A group of children were divided in
two. Half the group viewed a toy commercial. Given the choice between playing
with friends, or the toy, the first group
passed the people up. The non-viewers
chose their friends. Children who had
seen the ad were significantly more
distressed if the toy was denied, or when
their moms recommended another toy,
recommendations, the viewers ignored
Mom.
So when some Mom up in the toy
department says to her kid, "Do you have
that already? I don't know half the toys
you have," the desire to tell her to keep a
sharper eye on the toybox is strong.
Gorn says the best weapon parents have
against advertisers is the word "No."
Now that seems like a really grinchy
note to end with. After all, those
Christmas trees topped by little E.T.s with
the flashing eyes are kind of heartwarming. So put your feet up and listen to
Elvis. He can really wail White Christmas
as well. Eat your heart out Bing. Merry
Christmas.

Nothing's best about Friends

Now let me get this straight. Burt
Reynolds is replaying his "I'm a
sensitive guy who can do challenging" role from Starting Over. And
Goldie Hawn is her usual competent self, outshining everyone else in
sight?
And the movie is called Best
Friends?
Let me out of the theatre.
Best Friends
Directed by Norman Jewison
Opening Dec. 17 at Vancouver Centre
Based on screenwriters Barry
Levinson and Valerie Curtin's personal experiences as colleagues and
lovers, Best Friends is a romantic
comedy about — what else — two
screenwriters who have a good relationship — until they get married.
Best Friends has a good premise
for a modern story about the nature
of marriage as a relationship which
serves not to enhance, but destroy
friendships between couples. But
the film's concerns, and its central
characters, are so uninteresting and
unconvincing that there doesn't
seem to be anything credible about
it.
One would expect Levinson and
Curtin, who wrote Best Friends, to
have at least funny dialogue for
characters based on themselves.
And Jewison, who directed some of
the most impressive musicals of the
'60s and '70s, including Fiddler on
the Roof, has opted for a placid,
visually unexciting style that frequently relies on Michel Legrand's
awful music to add spirit to some
scenes.
That leaves Goldie Hawn to be
the one impressive factor in Best
Friends. But the actress, who prides
herself about her selection of film
roles, consistently chooses films
which have modern women
characters who only end up conforming   to   traditional   ideals.   Last
year, it was Private Benjamin, this
year Best Friends.

Conversation dies.
Blues singer Almeta Speaks has
just penetrated Humphrey's
Lounge with a full, rich note.
Though the audience is relaxed and
chatty, Speaks' soulful rendition of
Oh Happy Day has captured
everyone's attention. Sitting 35
storeys over English Bay, the audience is momentarily rivetted by
her effortless blues slide.
When the set is over, the UBC
student walks out into the audience,
seeking feedback and making
friendly conversation. "I'm so glad
you could come," Speaks says to
one recently-arrived table. "You
applaud — and you even know
when."
Going from table to table, Speaks
explains the background to her
music. With degrees in Communca-
tions and Sociology, she has spent
much of her life studying and
documenting the history of her people — North American blacks.
Currently living in Vancouver,
Speaks continues to express and explain black culture through her
music. She accompanies herself on
the piano, in a style reminiscent of
Oscar Petersen, while Henry Young
backs her up on a softly-amplified
guitar.
Speaks is currently producing
and promoting her first album. She
was attending UBC's School of
Social Work in preparation for the
Simon  Fraser University masters

Speaks is modest. "I'm a singer
who can't really write very well,"
she says. "I'm sure there are writers
out there who can't really sing. If
we got together, we'd be
dynamite." Such writers will have a
chance to meet Speaks for no cover
charge while she performs at Humphreys until Dec. 18.
Speaks is still sitting at a table,
sharing a drink with a member of
the audience. Young has returned
to his guitar and is ready for the
next set. "Go ahead and start,
Henry," she says. "I'll be there in a

Malice causes froth
by inadequate Foth
To: Allan Fotheringham
c/o Southam News Syndicate
Dear Allan:
I am writing you concerning your
latest book, Malice in Blunderland
(Key Porter Books, $17.95), which I
am reviewing for The Ubyssey. You
do remember The Ubyssey, don't
you? You used to work here some
decades back. From what I've
heard, some people wish you would
have stayed here.
But I digress. I am writing to explain to you why I cannot honestly
recommend this book to students.
Don't get me wrong. It has
nothing to do with your competency as a writer. Far from it: anyone
who manages to maintain a regular
column on the back page of
Maclean's magazine through all its
constant changes is anything but incompetent. And you are most certainly effective in getting your ideas
across, judging from the publicity
blurb on the book's jacket.
No, your main problem is that all
those years of writing regular columns for the Vancouver Sun,
Maclean's, and Southam have set
the parameters of your effectiveness
at one thousand words or less. Any
more and the constant reader is in
danger of an overdose.
Malice in Blunderland, you explain in your introduction, is a look
at the Liberal party and its effects
on Canada. What you do is take a
trip from the Maritimes to Vancouver (which you refer to as the
village at the edge of the rain-forest)
and take a look at the politicians,
regional and federal. Occasionally
you stop and take a look around
some of the Canadian cities such as
Toronto, Winnipeg, etc. A couple
of chapters even psychoanalyze the
True Grits, including the finger (my
term for P.E. Trudeau, whom you
dislike as much as chopped liver).
Allan, all the book amounts to at
first glance is a compendium of columns about Trudeau, MacEachen
and the other stalwarts of the
Liberal party. In short, "I hate
Trudeau — and here's why."

But, you protest, you only borrowed materials from your columns. You claim the book is actually a collection of observations and
reflections you made to yourself
while shuttling from Vancouver to
Ottawa and back.
Allan you should know better
than to try and write a book on a
plane. Not only is the altitude
disorienting, but you may become
so engrossed that you may get off at
the wrong stop. Moreover, it affects your writing (some of the
passages about Trudeau read as if
you had written them while you
were airsick).
Perhaps one of the biggest
reasons why I won't recommend the
book is that it is a hardcover.
As a series of columns, Malice in
Blunderland would work great. A
paperback edition would also work.
But as a hardcover it is a waste of
money.
You see, hardcovers are meant to
last generations, as opposed to
paperbacks, which last but some
years at most. You are dealing with
situations and problems which are
only current, and which would confuse the hell out of Canadians
should they read the book for the
first time twenty to forty years from
now.
Besides, who wants to pay $17.95
on a hardcover full of
Trudeauphobia when for the same
price they can get the paperback as
well as a good spaghetti dinner? In
my opinion, the latter choice is a
better value.
Yours sincerely,

THE    UBYSSEY
Thursday,
English Beat bop through
with blistering first gig
The English Beat is a
Birmingham-based dance band that
performed at the Commodore
ballroom Monday night to an
ecstatic capacity crowd. Ubyssey
staffers Peter Berlin and Jack
Tieleman talked with Dave Wakel-
ing (vocals and guitar) and Andy
Cox (guitar and mandolin) before
the show.
Do you notice a big difference in
your audience here than in Britain?
Less and less with each visit.
We're going to have to mention
new wave sooner or later in the interview. It's more new wave over
here now from three years ago when
we first visited and also we did
for enough of the population to
notice it and there's a lot of groups
about.
So I think the audience is very
similar and they're a much more
politically motivated audience than
three years ago. In America I guess
I'm talking about youth under
Carter and youth under Reagan. I
mean its someone to kick against.
Now they would rather talk about
nuclear disarmament than where
are the quailudes, which is all for
the better I think.
Why do you write political songs?
Cause they're there. So we don't
write songs about rock'n roll
boulevard. That's the thing. That's
like the biggest nothing to us which
is perhaps why we don't or why we
spend a lot of our energies trying to
avoid the usual trappings of stars
'cause I'd hate to be famous in the
Rock 'n roll sense of the word. It
gets really sick and old fashioned,
really redundant. Getting swanky
and breaking T.V.s and all that
nonsense.
groups three years on the trot. You
might buy LP's by them all if you
really liked them or you might tape
everything they do. As for buying
their singles every time they bring
one out. Especially if they haven't
got any money. Yeah, especially if
they haven't got any money.
You guys miss Birmingham?
Only as an idea more than a
place, its a real dump. Its kinda
dull. Then sometimes your most
comfortable clothes are dull. The
and lifts your spirits. The thing that
had to do with the mind in the past
years have been fairly depressing,
eavesdrop on someone's conversation, watch the news or read a
newspaper or even watch soap
operas on T.V. There is this obsession with the dark side of things.
So the idea was to have the music
sound really happy with everybody
cheerful and smiling and the third
time they hear it they find out what
the lyrics are about. It sets up contradiction within them, a contradiction that's within everybody I thin,
that doesn't usually get expressed.
You usually get a happy cheering
song with happy lyrics or otherwise
you get a dull angry tune with angry
lyrics.
I thought it was nice to have two

somebody says "you happy or are
you sad" — a bit of each at the moment.
enough headline gigs to attract people who like our records. So the
first ten rows know the words to, all
the songs just like England.
People seem to dance a lot better
on this continent in the last three
years. When they first saw us they
were trying to do versions of punk
dances, kicking the can or pogoing.
Now I notice that the American
continent moves its hips. It's a big
place, it takes a long time for information to be absorbed.
There's a number of people over
here say they've just heard of us,
they say we just bought your
album, you got any more albums
out? You realize how long it takes
Do you think your popularity has
fallen off?
Oh yes, certainly, it happens to
every group, but its part of the
system. Its the same system that
gave us our chance in the first place.
So it's not disastrous or anything
like that, it's fairly par for the
course.
The last two singles haven't gotten
much air play on the radio. Does
that bother you?
They have got played on the
radio, they've had more airplay in
England now more than ever. But

. . . Beat goes on
Dancing feet, sweaty bodies and ear to ear smiles, courtesy of the
English Beat, filled the Commodore Ballroom Monday night. The
band had the audience bouncing widly from the first song and they
didn't stop for an hour and a half.
The traditional wisdom is that a concert should build up to a
climax. The Beat ignored this. There was no foreplay—just 90
minutes of climax.
Vocalist Ranking Roger danced until his shirt gleamed with
perspiration. When he introduced songs in his distinctive toasting
style, the audience roared with approval. Reggae-style songs like
Spar Wid Me were just as well received.
The band played well known tunes like Mirror In The Bathroom,
Hands Off She's Mine and Rankin Full Stop, but unknown songs
like Ackee. 1 2 3 and End of the Party went down equally well.
The Beat's great strength is they don't have to try to be different.
Their songs are different from each other as well as from those of
other bands. The energy and flavor are the same when performed but
the songs are all distinctive.
The fun the band has on stage was picked up by Monday's audience. The crowd's enthusiasm lifted the band even higher.
The band's new members have added an extra element to their
music. The skinhead pianist Blockhead brought a surprisingly
delicate touch to several numbers. Saxophonist Wesley Magoogan,
who replaced veteran member Saxa for the tour, fulfilled nis role as
the band's only melodic instrumentalist with honking pizzaz.
On Magoogan's cross stage surges he frequently crahsed into
unassuming guitarist Andy Cox who was dancing around in
the other corner. Cox, like lead singer and guitarist Dave Wakeling,
concentrated on producing a slashing rhythm sound that owes a lot
to Jamaican reggae.
It was hardly surprising that the band was brought back for an encore by a delirious crowd. Incredibly, after two more songs both the
band and the audience had the energy for another round. The band
slowed down a bit for End of the Party but then came the final surge
before they tore themselves away for the last time.
people make up for the place. It's a
good place to go after you finish
work, there's no clubs to go, there's
no chance of becoming part of the
rock 'n roll fraternity, because there
isn't one.
You try to avoid the same old stuff?
Is that why your love songs are so
unromantic?
Unromantic? You accusing me of
being unromantic? Hmmm, I think
they're romantic like streaked with
a viscious realism. They're not pie
in the sky but I don't think they're
How do you categorize yourselves?
Everchanging. The only constant
in the world is say, change. I can't
really think of pidgeon-holing, I got
sick to death of people calling us a
Ska group. So I sat for ages and
ages thinking what kind of a group
are we and I realized why people
were calling us a ska group, I didn't
know either.
You can do all those lists, pop,
reggae, soul, saltso calypso, fusion,
hybrid, mishmash kind of an Irish
stew group. That's the idea of being
called The Beat, it is an obsession
with rythmn and that's endless. We
have Wesley on saxophone as lead
instrument and everybody else uses
their musical  knowledge.
How was the festival at Montego
Bay Jamaica?
We went down very well actually,
we got the first encore of the
festival and that was on the second
day, we were quite astounded by it,
noticing the audience, it was like the
set went on longer and longer, the
"Can we have a hundred dollars please?
Yeah, you haven't asked us why the third
album is less political than the others."
unromantic. They certainly reflect
the way romance hits me anyway. I
mean that you get horror and joy in
about equal amounts, alternating
currents.
I don't think we'd write one of
those moon, spoon, June gosh how
I love you baby, all night long, sor-
ta songs 'cause I don't see that it
happens in real life. Pop groups invent that and and the audience
bangs their heads against the wall
for the rest of their lives thinking
why aren't I like that. Well
nobody's like that, but I am romantic, I do believe in the power of love
and whatever.
One of the ideas was that music
was a generally really happy thing
Jamaicans warmed to us more and
more.
The American audience knew
about us and were kinda enthusiastic from the start, that was
only half the audience, during the
set we managed to capture the other
half. That was a big thing going and
going. Hey guess what we've done
to your music, take a listen to this.
It could have gone either way and
the thing that a lot of people congratulated us, as usual the most enthusiastic people were those that
missed the show, that's the only
that seems to happen every gig.
It was lovely to see Jamaica, it
was funny to see the organization,
the Clash meant to go on at midnight and ended up going on at
half-past five, ludicrous. Something
about the festival was rather
dodgey, the politics behind it, the
idea that it was meant to be some
huge celebration of Bob Marley but
it did not say much more sort of a
social neutering of his memory, to
turn him into a yearly festival and
go down and say Bob Marley a hundred times and have a good time for
three days.
At the end of the three days you
felt it wasn't the revolution he was.
Perhaps that's why Seaga was there
on the first night quoting Bob
Marley lyrics, oh me it was sick to
death. There were a lot of little
things behind the idea of the festival
and it was sold as though it was this
Bob Marley thing.
It was sort of a new political
realignment of the new right wing
government of Jamaica and
America: "You stop talking to
Cuba and we'll have your bauxite
again and you can have a few
tourists back". They even put the
adverts on T.V.
It's not like the adverts at all. It's
because of that we decided we
didn't want to be filmed at all.
Because it was being sold on fairly
unstable ground, what we were
filmed was when we were giving a
big spiel about Reagan and Seaga.
It was wonderful to see a bit of
Jamaica and play in front of a
Jamaican audience. The idea of going down, well phew, what a relief.
But the poverty there was
unbelievable. That's what an
American filmmaker said to me
"It's not just for America, it's going to be televised right across
Jamaica".
We all howled with laughter, how
are they going to find somebody
with a television. The only thing the
people got out of the festival was
the little stalls they set up two miles
from the site to sell things at.
The hotel we stayed in had dober-
mans patrolling to make sure that
nobdoy from Jamaica got close to
the white artists or the cultured
American Rastafarians lounging
around in their $100 Rasta lock
perms but we're painting a black
picture, we did meet a lot of nice
people. All in all was an unqualified
success.
Are there any questions that we
haven't asked that you would like?
Can we have a hundred dollars
please? Yeah, you haven't asked us
why the third album is less political
than the others. I say not less
political myself. It is less party
politics. Certainly the idea was that
we already said that, so it's pretty
boring to say it again.
This was meant to be how people
get on taking the situation as right
off from the first two records. The
situation isn't any better, in fact it's
much worse. 'Sole Salvation, Actee

Nothing new in
nukes new novel
By BRIAN JONES
The best thing that can be said
for Beyond the Freeze: The Road to
Nuclear Sanity is that it embodies
all the faults of the peace
movements in two dozen short easy
to read chapters. Sophisticated
logic and indepth analysis are both
missing, as the Union of Concerned
Scientists have chosen to rely on
already proven neo-liberal
arguments.
The problem is that the book has
nothing new to add to the ongoing
debate on the nuclear arms race. At
the outset, the UCS dredges up the
familiar "them vs. us" analysis,
declining, as do most commentators
on nearly every social issue, to differentiate between government and
citizen.
Beyond the Freeze: The Road to
Nuclear Sanity
By the Union of Concerned Scientists
Beacon Press, Boston
132 pages, $4.95
The UCS begins the second
chapter by calling the U.S.S.R. "a
dangerous, overmilitarized society
with interests antithetical to our
own." Due to socialization, many
people might not question this oft-
made assertion, but those who do
will not get reliable proof from the
UCS. They actually contradict
themselves by offering evidence to
the contrary.
They state the U.S. government
spent over one trillion dollars on
defence in the '70s. "Combined,
the United States and its partners in
NATO outspent the Soviet Union
and Warsaw Pact by several hundred billion dollars in the '70s and
continue to outspend them today,"
says UCS. Like the peace movement, the UCS shows an aggravating reluctance to seriously
criticize American policy and the
system from which it springs. One
can only guess that the UCS is also
afraid of alienating the public, but
they do it to their own detriment.
Beyond the Freeze has a tendency
to depict the US as an innocent
bystander who must take defensive
action as the evil U.S.S.R. mobilizes
in its aim for world domination.
Why the UCS decided to follow such
a predictable argument is confusing,
not in the least because they do offer some interesting points that expose the deficiencies and lies of successive American administrations.
At various periods over the past
two and a half decades the.
American government has decried
the dangers of apparents "gaps":
of bombers, missiles, bombshelters, anti-ballistic missiles,
throw-weight, spending, civil
defence planning, etc. All of these
gaps were eventually proven to be
untrue, and in some cases they were
blatant fabrications. Yet the UCS
does not pursue this information
any farther to bring any substantial
meaning to the reader. Instead, it is
casually mentioned and dropped.
This is the way most issues are
dealt with in Beyond the Freeze. Information is barely touched upon,
and is simply given, with little expansion or interpretation. For
readers wanting an introduction to
the disarmament issue such an approach can serve well, but for those
who want more it will be a disappointment, especially given the
publicity and hype that surrounds
scientist/peacenik groups such as
the UCS. If anything, Beyond the
Freeze proves the expertise in
science need not necessarily bring
knowledge of political issues.
In fact, the best part of Beyond
the Freeze is a quote from Woody
Allen: "More than any other time
in history, mankind now faces a
crossroads. One path leads to
despair and utter hopelessness. The
other, to total extinction. Let us
pray we have the wisdom to choose
correctly."
Up and coming jazz saxist
sees value in diversity
By CHRIS WONG
Vancouver jazz saxophonist Tom
Keenlyside has no illusions about
stardom. Despite being one of the
best local jazz musicians, he is not
bitter or frustrated over the cloud
of obscurity that hangs over him.
"I couldn't care less about being
a star," insists Keenlyside. "I just
want to get out there and play
jazz because it's fun. It's really
fun."
One could accuse him of lacking
ambition or drive because he has
adopted this unadultrated attitude.
Listening to his playing reveals the
otherwise: he is an artist dedicated
to his craft. There are flaws in his
playing, but he is motivated by a
sincerity and conviction that comes
through his music.
Within a year of blowing his first
notes on the trumpet, Keenlyside
was playing regular dance jobs on
the weekends. "It's just got to the
point where I was playing all the
time, even in high school. My
friends didn't know what the hell I
was doing," he says.
At UBC he became more
knowledgeable about his music.
Dropping the trumpet, Keenlyside
concentrated on the flute and
undertook the task of learning
other compatible instruments.
Eventually, the clarinet, piccolo
and saxophone, now his main instrument, became part of his
repetoire.
Out of the disciplined classical
training he received at UBC ernerg-
ed a jazz musician. He is
hesistant in making a clear distinction between the two idioms. "I
find that jazz expresses the same
kind of moods as a lot of classical
composers originally intended their
music to have, so that it in turn to
me is now the twentieth century
form of classical music."
His conception of jazz musie is a
refreshing change from the attitude
of arrogance that limits many in this
art form. Rather than applying
meaningless labels to music and
judging on face value, he looks at
the thought behind the music.
"They (the jazz purists) have an
attitude like 'I'll do that other kind
of gig but its bullshit." That's
wrong. Anything in the music field
as long as its well done is totally
valid. We're all using the same
scales, the same notes."
It would be inaccurate to classify
Keenlyside as strictly a jazz musician. Aside from his own group
which leans towards a straight-
ahead jazz direction, he is also a
member of a danceband Wildroot
Orchestra, a fusion band Skywalk,
and he plays with blues artists Jim
Byrnes and Al Foreman.
But he says: "I prefer my own
band. Ah, well no, I'll amend that.
I couldn't be stuck in one bag for
too long because it would drive me
crazy. I've played times where I've
been doing an awful lot of jazz type
jobs and really missed a really hot,
booting-ass type rock and roll
band.
"Booting-ass type roc!: and roll"
was exactly what he played in leaner
times. Backing up such notables as
Alice   Cooper,   Keenlyside   ex-
"Anything in the
music field as long as
its well done is
totally valid."
perienced the highs and lows of life
on the road. The highs included
receiving the thrill and shock of
playing before crowds as large as
35,000 people. "Once you get past
the third row, they (the audience)
might as well be the acreage. Its just
a wall of humanity." But not all his
memories are particularly fond.
"We were playing a Cobo Hall
(in Detroit) for 8000 thugs. My first
entry on stage was a ballad tune so I
come out and the whole stage was
dark and there was a pin spot on my
head. It was like a target. Bottles
were whizzing by my head and I
looked down and . . . there's a guy
being stabbed.
"At that point you think, 'What
am I doing here?' This isn't music,
it has no relation. It's kind of a
bizarre contact sport in which fnusic
is sort of a catalyst and the rest of it
is just stupidity."
He clearly sees the necessary
direction a musician must take to
leave the obscurity of the musical
trenches. "You have to be prepared
to spend some money and make a
record, its the only way."
His initial attempts at accomplishing this task were far from
successful. With the record industry
-suffering from a diminishing
market, none of the labels he approached were willing to take a
chance on Keenlyside. "We sent
out a tape to all the record companies and almost all of them sent
back the tape with a blurb about
how much they really like it. But no
one knew who I was."
His solution was to form his own
independent label, Jazzline records.
With the album released through
Jazzline, he is free from much of
the financial exploitation that often
occurs in the industry. "That's one
of the appealing things about doing
an independent record, you know
exactly what's going on. You only
have yourself to blame if it doesn't
pan out."
His efforts have paid off. The
album was recorded at a top Los
Angeles studio with Bernie Kirsh,
known for his work with Chick
Corea. As well, a deal for distribution on a label from the United
States is in the works for the album
which has received an "incredible
response."
"They (artists) just get so caught
up in the commercial end of it and
get swallowed up. The tunes
become so produced and overproduced that they forget the
essence of jazz."
To Keenlyside, the essence of his
brand of music seems to be in his attempts at seeking out and conquering musical hurdles.
"It's a real challenge. You have
to transfer your idea of mood and
sapce and time and feeling about
the music to them (the audience). In
order to do that you can't
haphazard. In days gone by you
could be a little more reckless.
Keenlyside says he likes above all
the feeling of exhiliration acquired
from a live performance.
"Sometimes I'll play a gig with
Skywalk and the energy is so intense
on stage, I feel like doing cartwheels
around the club. Your .energy levels
build up so high, you just feel like
rocketing out. Its great, you
know."
Party worth attending
By SHAFFIN SHARIFF
They have gathered for a special
party at Don's place; it is election
night, 1969, in Sydney, Australia.
Expecting a labor sweep in parliament, 10 unsuspecting souls get
together to celebrate the arrival of a
new government and a new order.
But things don't work out as they
are expected to. As the evening
wears away, and the television announcer drons into Don't livingroom with the results, the party
disintegrates into a sexual free-for-
all. Each character, married or not,
is stripped away — both figuratively
and literally.
Don's Party is the subject of
Bruce Beresford's film.
Don's Party
Directed by Bruce Beresford
Opening Dec. 24 at Towne Cinema
Don's Party was made in 1976,
and released sporadically in North
America. It's commercial premiere
in Vancouver will give audiences a
chance to see a different side to
Australian director. Bruce
Beresford, especially if they have
only seen his Breaker and Morant
and The Getting of Wisdom.
Don's Party — and his 1980 film,
The Club, which played at the
Ridge film festival this past summer
— provide an interesting comparison with Bresford's- period
pieces. In terms of style, Don's Party is markedly different from
Breaker Morant.
There is an uncomfortable
austerity to Breaker Morant which
makes it into a solemn exercise in
stoicism; and it doesn't even begin
to compare with Stanley Kubrick's
1958 film, The Paths of Glory,
which has a similar storyline.
People who have seen the adventures of Barry McKenzie on television may be surprised to know it
was directed by Beresford. Barry
MacKenzie is a silly, ribald sexual
—or perhaps just sex—comedy that
seems like an overextended Benny
Hill skit stretched to 10 minutes.
Unlike Breaker Morant, Don's
Party, like the Club, is a comedy —
and it is possibly the best Australian
comedy to get a North American
release. The comedy expectedly
comes from the characters' foibles
and flaws; but there is a sharp wit to
Beresford's expdsition and depiction of the party. The politics that
usher into the room from the television set seem to become the sexual
politics of characters, with the men
separating into one group and the
women into another. And it is the
men who make fools of themselves.
The film has a running time of
only 90 minutes and only one locale
— Don's house. Although it is
adapted from a play which also has
only one setting, it is remarkable
how unclaustrophobic the film
feels. The camera doesn't seem to
be stuck in one place, recording the
characters' actions from one
perspective because it has no room
to move.
Don's Party reveals a gifted
satiric filmmaker at work — one
who would do a great deal of good
for the, cause of screen comedy
making films like Don's Party and
The Club. Page 14

In the first ever Yuletide Hockev tournament a surorisinalv strong
MBA squad defeated Vanier 3-0 for the championship final. Two
standouts for the MBA team were forward Bill Trenaman (2 goals) and
goalie Darrel Gustafson (shutoutl. In earlier play, both teams knocked
off the pre-tournament favorites in shootouts. Vanier defeated the
Betas 5-4 and the MBA's beat their rivals, the commerce undergrad
team 3-2. In the Commerce - MBA semi-final, Commerce forced a
shoot-out with a goal less than two minutes left. However, consecutive shoot-out goals by McCloskey, Trenaman, Gustafson and
Sanderson of the MBA team put the game out of reach.
In the men's Yuletide Volleyball final, EUS Civil 4 defeated and
upset the Chinese Varsity Club two games to one on the strong play of
spiker Bruce Miller. In the semi-finals, EUS had defeated the Dekes
while the Chinese Varsity squad had downed the EUS Georox.
On the women's court. Forestry defeated the Phrateres II team by
scores of 11-5, 11-5 to take the championship.
In the Soccer finals last week there were 6 winners. In the women's
tournament a strong Forestry team downed the Engineers 3-1 for the
Div. 1 Crown. Div. II saw a well-practiced Tweeds Alumni team defeat
the Mix-ups (Ind) by a score of 2-1, and Div. Ill was won by Kappa
Kappa Gamma.
In men's soccer, the top team from each division and several wild
card berths battled it out for top spot. In Div. I the EUS {IA) squad
defeated a challenging SUS side 3-1. Division II was won by International House over last year's champions - Civil 3, by a score of 3-2, and
Div. Ill was awarded to St. Andrews when it was discovered that the

TWO BALLS out of three is result of ill-starred wrestling match at Osborne
Centre. Outcome of match led to rule changes and tigthened chin guards.
SPORTS
GYMNASTICS
The UBC women's gymnastic
team had their first competition of
the season at the Osborne centre
Friday. They comfortably out cartwheeled the Flicka Club from the
North Shore by 205 points to 29.
UBC's Patti Sakaki and Anne
Muscat placed first and second
overall.
The teams next tumble is in the
new year when they cross into
Reagan land for the Washington
open.
WATER POLO
UBC water polo club's first team
recorded its second comfortable
win in the first division of the Vancouver league Sunday. They beat
Bellevue, an American team, at the
Vancouver aquatic centre by nine
goals to three.
HOOPSTERS UNITE
Community Sport Services of
UBC is conducting a mini basketball camp for all potential Kareem

Sessions for both boys and girls run
from December 20-23 and 27-30.

228-3688.
VOLLEYBALL
To score points in volleyball, one
needs either good blocking or exceptional defense. Smart hitting
helps also.
The Japanese national university
side combined the two latter
qualities last Saturday to sweep the
UBC women's team, 15-2, 15-4 and
15-0 at War Memorial gym.
Relying on an outside attack, the
experienced Japanese visitors
capitalized on UBC blocking errors;
sending the ball cross-court, down
the line and wiping it off the 'Bird
blockers.
Although the scores were lopsided, 'Birds coach Sandy Silver said
her team "was competitive and won
a lot of side-outs; but couldn't get
the points."
Tara Senft was the dominant
figure for the 'Birds, enjoying hitting success up the middle and
presenting formidable blocks.
But overall, the 'Birds had their
hands full with the Japanese. The
visitors were just that much more
experienced and determined to win
the match; and did so deservedly.
The Thunderbirds resume league
play in January.
By ALISON HOENS
Contrary to popular belief,
wrestling in its proper form, is
nothing like the gaudy performances of the quasi-intellectuals on
TV's All Star Wrestling. UBC
coach Gary Gardiner compares it
to judo: there is no ring or ropes,
just a mat where two athletes try to
dictate control with speed, agility,
co-ordination and strength.
Although a team sport, wrestlers
compete one-on-one anticipating
and reacting to highly technical
manouevers. Sounds interesting, so
why don't they pack the gym with
screaming fans?
The answer might lie in the recent
history of wrestling at UBC. Administrative, coaching, and
recruiting problems almost led to
the entire program being axed last
year.
But this year the sport is making
a comeback under the leadership of
newly appointed Gardiner.
Hockey 'Birds
hustle Huskies
The defending Canada West conference champion Saskatchewan
Huskies sledded into Thunderbird
Sports Centre this past weekend
ranked third in the country. Now,
after sweeping their series with
UBC Thunderbirds, they are
second behind Toronto Blues.
Saskatchewan played impressive
hockey enroute to their 7-1 and 5-3
victories over the cellar-dwelling
Thunderbirds.
The 'Birds are still winless at
home in regular season action even
though Saturday night's 5-3 loss
was one of their best games this
year.
"UBC played a better game
Saturday night," said Huskies
coach Dave King, who is also
coaching Canada's defending world
champion junior team at the world
championships in Leningrad, USSR
later this month.
"They really work hard, they
cover a lot of mistakes by hard
work, and I have to admire the fact
that when they're down they still
played a very good game.
"They always give us tough
games. They have a big team this
year, they skate extremely well for a
big team and we always come out of
here banged up. They have a real
physical team and played a tough
brand of hockey," said King. Dennis Fenske and Marc Chartier led
the Huskies with two goals apiece
Saturday night while Anthony
Thomas, Mike Coflin and Grant
Harris scored for the Birds.
In Friday night's 7-1 thrashing of
the Birds, Kevin McNaught scored
three goals for the Huskies. UBC's
lone goal scorer was Mike Coflin.

NOTICE TO ALL
STUDENTS APPLYING
TO UBC LAW SCHOOL
FOR SEPTEMBER, 1983
The UBC Law School will accept
the February 19, 1983 writing of
the Law School Admissions Test
for admission in September, 1983.
However, applications for admission to both the university and the
Faculty of Law must still be submitted prior to December 31,
1982.
But, here is where things get
messy. Gardiner's master coach is
Mike Jones, the head coach at SFU.
Gardiner works twice a week at
SFU with their team — so SFU is
both friend and foe.
There are advantages to the situation. UBC met SFU last Friday
night in a 'friendly' meet. Although
the SFU team won 32-15, individual
UBC wrestlers scored upsets.
"I know the weaknesses of SFU
because of training them. With
UBC we worked on strategies to
take advantage of that situation,"
said Gardiner.
SFU has become a wrestling
powerhouse as a result of better
recruitment, but Gardiner believes
that now the scales will begin to
balance as 12 $1,000 scholarships
are being offered to entice wrestlers
to UBC.
"This year's emphasis is on
recruitment," said Gardiner. "As
co-ordinator of the National Junior
Program I got a chance to see the
upcoming talent: hopefully I've
made a good impression."
Short term expectations for the
team must be kept within the realms
of realism. Gardiner expects to take
six members to the Canada Wests
and probably two to the National
Championships. Martin Gleave is
the greatest prospect with a chance
of winning.
In the future, UBC may become a
force to reckon with. "Within 4
years I plan on winning the CIAU
championships as a team," said
Gardiner.
Beyond joke now
By PETER BERLIN
It looks as if the days when the
women's basketball team was the
standing joke of UBC sports are
over. Last weekend the UBC team
went to Hayward, California where
they won two of their three games
and finished third in a six team
tournament. All their opposition
was supplied by U.S. National Collegiate Athletic Association teams^
The first game was on Friday
when UBC played Fresno state.
They lost 64-37. The signs of improvement were there however,
especially in the rebounding area.
Fresno, whose forward's average
height was six foot three, collected
only one more than the five foot ten
average UBC forward line.
The next day UBC beat the hosts
California State at Hayward, 76-71
in overtime. UBC had taken the
game into overtime when Colette
Pilloud sank a 13 foot shot with just
two seconds left.
Coach Neil Brown said the improvement   between   Friday   and
Saturday was a result of the team
overcoming its nerves. "The intensity was so high it carried us
through."
The intensity was maintained on
Sunday when UBC defeated Humboldt state 61-47. Delia Douglas
lead the team with 16 points.
After the game Colette Pilloud
was voted onto the tournament all
star   team.
Brown said he was really pleased
with the team. "They played.their
best games ever, it was by far their
best effort of the year. They shot 25
per cent better and rebounded better than in any of their previous
games."
The team is one of the youngest
ever with an average of less than
one year of university basketball
experience. Outstanding players
like Pilloud and Fedorak have just
arrived at UBC. "There is no limit
to what this team can achieve," said
Brown. And to think that less than
a year ago that limit was believed to
be one win a season.

UBC lawyer gives
free $20 advice
I note with pleasure the recent
passage of a referendum increasing
AMS fees by $20 per year, largely to
assist in the financing of a variety of
capital projects. No doubt to my
eternal vilification, 1 have a few
comments on the spending of this
modest sum.
On campus student housing was
the top priority of the referendum.
Before rushing into providing seed
money for new residences,
however, student council ought to
remember that demand for such
housing has been distorted recently
by rising enrolments (against
demographic trends and, latterly,
economic conditions) and an abnormal shortage of reasonable off campus housing. It is far from clear that
the present demand will be sustained. Such money as is available
might be better spent on renovations to existing residences, such as
Totem Park and Place Vanier, both
of which are in large part decrepit.
Given that the intramural program provided a major impetus for
the passage of the referendum, it is
not surprising that the development
of athletic facilities was also a high
priority. In part this was a protest
vote, for Intramurals has repeatedly
been denied access to facilities (eg.
fields) by the selfish elitism of the
athletics department. Any facilities
which are built must be for recreational users only, in particular the
Intramurals program.
If the athletics department needs
such things it can damn well build
its own. Indeed, it may well be time
to abolish the $9 athletics fee, given
that varsity sports have little
relevance to an institution of higher
learning and in any case enjoy little,
if any, non-partisan student support.
Your Nov. 23 article on the
referendum reports Nestor Korchinsky, director of Intramurals, as
stating that two-thirds of the $3 increase (per student) in Intramural
fees would go to satisfy the needs of
a burgeoning bureaucracy. One can
only hope that some small portion
of this 200 per cent increase will be
set aside for other purposes,
notably capital projects such as
equipment purchases and facility
development.
Unfortunately, parkade construction was also a high priority.
Motorists at UBC are already
pampered in terms of access to campus and in the huge areas wasted for
parking. At the same time the
heavily used University boulevard
bike path is in appalling condition.
Millions of dollars have been spent
catering to the demands of UBC
motorists; perhaps now a few thousand could be grudgingly spent on
reconstruction and maintenance of
the bike path, thus satisfying the
modest needs of cyclists.

Students to become
fishy bureaucrats
By ROBERT BEYNON
Asking a student to explain the
world is like asking a goldfish in a
glass bowl to explain the sea.
Both the student and goldfish
cannot explain these subjects due to
ignorance caused by insularity.
The goldfish can stay in its bowl,
but the student, full of misconceptions, is thrown from UBC into a
world with which the student has
had little contact.
(freestyle)
The graduated student, due to
misconceptions gained at UBC,
does not integrate into society. The
student becomes a boss and a
beauracrat, not a member of society.
This insularity starts when
students insulate themselves from
the world, refusing to read or watch
news.
And this self-inflicted insulation
is complete.
Consider the statement of a third
year political science student who,
when asked the political party she
supported, replied:
"The Conservatives, I think. But
I'm not sure what their policies
are."
A brilliant star in the dark sky of
the political science department,
that student.
Take the example of the president
of a campus group who asked who
Pat McGeer, our own dear great
god bureaucracy's representative,
is.
Some students actually attend
school to escape the jungle which
begins at the gates. At a bus stop I
spoke with two prospective film
students discussing escaping work
and nasty people by attending
UBC.
The great god bureaucracy for
this insularity is thankful: if
students are not in touch, students
are not radical.
Also, to assist the student in attempts to wall out the world, the entire campus is based on separation
of campus and world.
The tweed and pipe scholastic attitude assures no modern problems
are discussed. As any prof can tell
you, modern problems are not
scholastic.
A great green blinder, the endowment lands, is wrapped about the
physical campus, assuring that
children, elderly people and riffraff do not disturb the young,
homogenous student body.
Students have sports facilities
which no community can compare
with, and all practically free.
By granting students groomed
grounds and aesthetic buildings,
great god bureaucracy cuts ugliness
from student lives, unlike others'
lives.
Remember student, great god
looks out for you — and say a
prayer to great god.

'Pressure only solution for hard-up TA's'
After the last Teaching Assistant
Union general meeting at which the
membership decided to take a strike
vote on Friday Dec. 10, the union
contacted the administration to see
if further talks were possible.
Whereas before the administration
had refused to continue
negotiating, when they were informed of the members' resolve to
take a strike vote, they reconsidered.
This demonstrates the unfortunate fact that the administration
is not willing to deal reasonably
with TAs; instead it only responds
to pressure. The form this pressure
will take first is a strike vote and if
that is not sufficient, then job action may be necessary. The more
pressure TAs can exert the greater
the chance that important contract
gains which took two years to win
will not be lost.
One vital article that the administration wants eliminated is job
security. Before the union won this
clause the university would attract
graduate students to UBC by offering them a teaching assistantship.
In  some  cases  however,   the  TA
would not be reappointed the
following year even though he or
she had performed the job satisfactorily. The university would then
use that position to lure a new grad
student to UBC, reasoning that the
individual who had not been reappointed would not quit the grad
program, having invested a year in
it, no matter how dire his or her
financial position.
The union fought for and got a
job security clause which states that
if a grad student is appointed as a
TA and performs his tasks satisfactorily, then he must have preference
for reappointment for two years of
a masters program and three years
of a Ph.D. program. Under the present contract TA's know that they
will have at least some measure of
financial security necessary to complete their degrees. The union will
not permit a return to a situation
whereby the grad student doesn't
know from one year to the next
whether he or she will be given the
financial support promised.
The other major concession the
administration is demanding relates
to union security. Presently union
membership is optional. Before a
Stadium possible
torture chamber?
Now that the violence and
mindlessness of the past two weeks
has cooled to some semblence of
normalcy, it is time to reflect on
what exactly happened during the
state of martial law.
The hastily erected morgues in
Yaletown and the all-too-plausible
rumors of blood-stained astroturf
in our stadium should make it obvious that something other than the
initial rioting went seriously wrong.
Why should the RCMP have
been allowed to bare such horrible
teeth?
My young neighbour was forced
to crawl the length of the field while
being set upon by scarlet-clad men
wearing spurred boots. His face
bears first degree burns from being
scraped along the artificial surface.
He had nothing to do with the riots;
the police had a file which convinced them otherwise, he said. They
released him. He was one of the
lucky ones, it seems.
Did the riots of Chinatown really
warrant the implementation of the
War Measures Act? How were the
police allowed to turn the supres-
sion of what was essentially a
massive racist attack on the Chinese

We, the women's varsity basketball team, do not appreciate the sarcastic and degrading remarks that
you make weekly in The Ubyssey
paper.
How do you expect a team to perform well or have any confidence in
themselves with people like you
degrading them all of the time.
We have a lot of talent on the
team and have proven to ourselves
that we can and will do well this
year. We would appreciate a little
support if that wouldn't be asking
too much from a team's own
school.
We won two of our three games
this weekend in San Francisco and
placed third in a six team tournament. We have won six games and
lost seven this year. Personally, that
is a pretty good record to start of
the season with; seeing as how

community into the opportunity to
collect and dispense with political
dissidents? How were the
paramilitary police (and the hundreds of American specialists visible
in the streets) able to transform the
world's sixth-largest domed
stadium into the most monumental
torture chamber on earth?
Now that the government has
emerged from the inexcusable immunity of censorship, would they
please answer for what has happened? I await the normalization stage
and the inevitable body count with
the terrible expectation that my
most horrific fears will seem mild
beside even what the government
will attempt to pass off as truth.
The Chilean and Indonesian
authorities must be impressed. 1 am
sure that they, too, will be building
new, improved stadiums in the near
future.

obvious of reasons.

Thank you
On behalf of the university
daycare council and the parents,
children and staff of the child care
centres I would like to thank all
those who supported the referendum and the day care issue. We are
most grateful for the immediate
$50,000 announced last week by
Dave Frank and feel that it may
help stimulate donations from
associations and foundations to
whom requests have been made on
our behalf by the president's advisory committee. All monies raised
will be used to repay the university.
The community care facilities
licensing board has extended our interim licenses to May 31, 1983 to
allow the required work to be done.
All this work is but a temporary
solution to our problem. The huts
are old and decrepid and need to be
replaced. Soon. We hope that when
the daycare council comes forward
with rebuilding plans, the support
you have shown in 1982 will be
remembered and that the Alma
Mater Society of 1985 will provide
seed money for a rebuilding project. Mab Oloman

TA or marker decides whether he
or she wishes to be a union member,
however, he dr she is required to attend an orientation meeting at
which a union representative
presents the case for joining.
Elimination of these meetings as the
administration demands would not
help TAs and markers, since no one
is forced to join the union. Rather it
would hurt them since the orientation meeting is the only chance the
union has to talk directly to all TAs
and markers about joining. So
without them TAs would be forced
to make an uninformed choice.
Clearly the administration is
pushing for the elimination of these
meetings as compulsory because
they do not want TAs and markers
to be able to communicate easily
with the union. They don't want
TAs and markers to join the union.
What we have fought hard to win,
and will not give up is the right to
present our case for union membership so that a TA can make an informed decision on whether or not
to join.
The third major outstanding
issue is wages. The reason it is
unresolved is that the administration refuses to even discuss it. The
administration has, in fact, not
made an offer on wages, but rather
issued a decree: TAs and markers
will receive the worst salary increase
of any group of employees on campus. While the TA Union
negotiators repeatedly raised the
issue in the hope that bargaining in
good faith would lead to an acceptable compromise, the administration maintained that it had nothing
to say except, "take it or leave it."
The union feels that the university has the money to give TAs and
markers a raise commensurate with
other campus employees, that is, in
the   range   of  8   per   cent.   Since
students have trouble making ends
meet, the administration's .dictatorial behavior is jeopardizing the
ability of grad students to financially survive, to continue their studies.
The way to ensure that the graduate
program continues to flourish as
UBC, especially in times of
economic hardship, is through cooperation and compromise, not
edicts and ultimata.
A fair wage settlement can only
be reached if the administration
returns to negotiations and bargains
in good faith. Until the administration realizes this, TAs will be forced
to fight to protect their rights. The
strike vote on Friday in one step in
this process. A strong Yes vote will
hopefully convince the administration to renew negotiations — if not,
further action will be necessary.

East van kids not taken for ride
I am writing in response to your
front page story on Nov. 30 (East
Van Kids to Be Taken for Ride) and
the Greater Vancouver Regional
District ad published on page 6 on
Dec. 3. I am very disappointed that
your story was not complete and
your headline is inappropriate.
I was one of the organizers of the
petition to get the Twenty-Fifth
Avenue bus. We started in Aug.
1975 and we got over 25,000names
on our petition and a few thousand
of those were from UBC. The Alma
Mater Society was also very helpful
donating money and sending
numerous letters.
This new route is not just for east
end kids to attend UBC but it is a
regular bus route that would serve
the whole city and the western part
of Burnaby similar to the Forty-
First and Forty-Ninth crosstown
buses.
Actually we do need a special bus
to bring east end kids to UBC. This
bus would be an express bus for
UBC passengers only along the existing bus routes. This bus would be
similar to the express bus that
operated along Forty-First Avenue
until Sept. 1975. At the present time
it takes an hour or longer for some
Burnaby and east side residents to
get to UBC and an express bus
would be very helpful. We also need
the return of the express buses from
West Vancouver and Richmond
directly to UBC.
The implementation of the
Twenty-Fifth bus would mean some
cutbacks on existing bus routes and
these should be opposed. For UBC
passengers the cuts will occur between the rush hours. The Forty-
First-UBC will operate every 20
minutes instead of every 15 minutes
which would also mean no direct
timed transfer at Dunbar loop with
the Forty-Ninth bus, which will
continue to operate every 15
minutes. The Fourth-Oak line will
operate every 15 minutes to and
from Blanca loop instead of every
12 minutes.
Some changes that are welcome
will be additional trips during rush
hours on the Forty-Ninth-UBC,
and return of full Sunday service on
the Forty-First-UBC.
Some comments about the ad
"Catch the King" on Dec. 3.
First, it does not even tell you that
the service will start on Friday, Dec.
17. Secondly, the ad states the trips
to UBC will operate "When UBC is
in Session." This is incorrect. The
trips to UBC will operate on all
weekdays through the Xmas and
new year season and the only times
it will not operate directly to UBC
are the three months from early
June to early September.
Thirdly, the schedule on Saturday is incorrect. The bus will
operate every 30 minutes from
about 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. and every 15
minutes after 9 a.m. (The ad has 15
minutes service starting at 7 a.m.)
Fourthly, the picture of the bus in
the corner of the ad is not the right
picture. The bus is clearly
numbered 2701 which is the serial
number for a trolley coach electric
bus, and as we all know the King
Edward bus is a diesel bus route.

Mad man wants to watch
T took one of my infrequent trips
to the Pit on Tuesday Nov. 9 — it
went something like this. We were
greeted by the doorman with a
cheery "You'll have to get our at
six." O.K. says I (thinking I'll just
have my usual "one"). How come?
"Cause it's Ladies Nite." Hm-
mmm? Two gulps into the beer and
it filters through my dim mill-like
perception that I don't know what a
"Ladies Nite" is, or why it would
require that I vacate the premises by
six. My friends didn't have any
answers either, so off I go on a fact
finding mission.
Bartender, whats going on here?
"It's Ladies Nite." Whats that
mean? "We're gonna have male
dancers on the stage and the women
are gonna vote for Mr. UBC (Pit or
whatever) and no males are allowed." Hmmmmm?
Back to the beer and the usual
"one" feels like the usual "two"
now. Who, I wonder, would sponsor such a show? Was the woman's
collective getting into the entertainment business, were the Drake pr
the Marr expanding out of the east
end?
Back to the bar, talk to a supervisor who tells me "We, the staff at
the Pit are sponsoring 'Ladies
Nite'." Are you having strippers
in? "No, just dancers." Pro's?
"No, we advertised on campus." In
The    Ubyssey?    "No,    just

handbills." Does the AMS approve? "Yes, we have their permission." Why do I have to get out?
"Because we can refuse service to
anybody we like." (Or don't like?)
Even if I'm not drunk or rowdy?
"Yes." What kind of liquor licence
gives you those powers? "We got
the top one whichever that is."
Hmmmmm? Back to the beer,
but we've been cut off so they can
"let the women in." Now I'm
curious, maybe I could have a beer
if I volunteered to dance. (Draft
delusions?) On to the manager.
Why do we have to get out?
"Because we don't want any guys."
What about the dancers, can I
volunteer? "No." Are you gonna
have a 'Men's Nite'? "No." How
come? "Because it'd be too rowdy,
uncontrollable, look its just one day
out of 365 and we wanna have a little fun." So do I, why can't I stay?
"Because you're male."
So tell me, what's going on
at the Pit. Is it some kind of sleazy
promotion along the lines of — first
we'll pack the place with women
and then the guys will descend en
masse and we'll sell more beer than
ever. Is it some kind of paternalistic
plan to protect me from the evils of
watching men dance? Is it more
devious than that, a plan to protect
the women from me watching them

watching men dance? Or is it some
unsubtle form of sexual discrimination, the kind of thing that projects
and reinforces unwanted roles on
males and females alike.
Seems to me that this is the kind
of repressive crap that enlightened

THE    UBYSSEY
Page 19
The good, bad and pseudo
There are good reviewers and
there are bad reviewers. Then there
are bad reviewers who think they
are good ones. This is where one
particular contributor to The
Ubyssey fits in: her name is Kelley
Jo Burke.
Every time I read one of Burke's
reviews, I am always amazed by her
complete inability to assimilate even
the simplest ideas coherently and intelligently. She seems quite content
to mash together a vast array of
undesirable elements of poor
writing, tossing together boring
trivialities with useless comparisons
and drenching the works with irritating cliches and clumsy rhetoric.
One of the cardinal rules for intelligent, accurate reviewing is to
stick to the facts. Predictably,
Burke failed to respond to this
essential rule numerous times, particularly in her recent review of
Margaret Kennedy's The Ladies of
Lyndon (Oct. 15). Burke displayed
what having the dreamy delusions
of being a reviewer can do to someone.
In that review, Burke stated that
Kennedy's work easily ranks in
quality with Aldous Huxley
because, as Burke saw it, Kennedy
"Gives an attention to the minute
and personal details of experience
that Huxley does not."
Further, in the same review,
Burke also stated that Virago, the
publishers of the book, republished Ladies Of Lyndon
because of "the quality of writing"
and that their intent was to "resurrect literary works . . . ignored
because of their female authorship."
After reading the review, I was so
disgusted I butted my clove
cigarette out.
Question: where the hell does
Burke get her information?
First of all — in response to the
Huxley comparison — Kennedy's
work was (and should be) ignored
because it is a boring, third-rate, exasperating exercise in complete
futility. And it is futile precisely
because of its ridiculous and
wasteful indulgence in personal
details. Details exclusively of interest only to Harlequin Romance
books freaks. To compare Kennedy's work with that of Huxley's is
Bill misses
point. Andy
for peace
In response to Bill Tieleman's letter, Peaceniks' Speaker Scab
(Ubyssey Nov. 30), I would like to
ask a few questions. What is Andrew Milne's crime that he should
be disallowed from speaking out intelligently for world peace? Is it
simply because he disagrees with
you on a totally unrelated topic?
"He is against the TAU."
Gee...anti-union... pretty bad
guy...yessirie!
But Bill, you are missing the important point! Milne was speaking
out for world peace and for alternatives to nuclear war. Why must
you dwell on his "dirty laundry"?
Why discredit him when he is finally (in your mind, I gather) doing
something good?
Individuals from all walks of life
are joining in the campaign for
peace and mutual disarmament
without worrying about petty
disagreements of their own. You
can too.

like comparing chicken shit to
chicken salad.
As for the comment that Kennedy was ignored because of her
"Female authorship" — what
nonsense! She was ignored because
her work is dull and senseless, void
of any sense of perspective.
The most startling inaccuracy in
Burke's review has to be her obviously unresearched, off-handed
comment that Virago was "resurrecting" Kennedy's work because
of the "quality of writing." The
truth of the matter is that Virago is
a financially struggling publishing
firm (like many others) and because
they were unable to make enough
money peddling classic literature,
they chose to drop their high stan
dards, deciding instead to swoop in
on the Harlequin Romance book
market.
As if her ridiculous and inaccurate comments weren't enough,
Burke also smears her reviews with
stenchy, acrid, superficial feminist
overtones — the aroma could level
Tacoma! — obliterating any glimmer of writing skills she may
possess.
So intelligent, UBC students,
beware: an inaccurate, turned-off,
tuned-out, mock-belligerant,
pseudo-feminist is peddling Harlequin Romance-like books in the
guise of a reviewer working for The
Ubyssey.

What, us irresponsible?
I am writing on behalf of twenty-
eight members of faculty of the
school of nursing to register our
protest about the article in The
Ubyssey of Nov. 16, entitled "Pool
closes, officials anticipate
epidemic."
We feel that this article, while undoubtedly cleverly written, is an example of very irresponsible journalism. It caused unnecessary concern for individuals and inconvenience to pool and health centre
staff. Surely enough misinformation on this emotive topic has been
presented by the press without a
university publication adding to the
sordid output.
I was told on the telephone by
one of your staff that the purpose
of the "hoax story" is to teach the
public to become discriminating
readers. I fear you have succeeded
all too well, because many people
said, "Don't worry about it, no one
takes The Ubyssey seriously
anyway!" This is unfortunate.

UBC publicly claims UEL lands
By JANE BARTLETT
Imagine having 1,700 acres of
natural forest in your backyard.
If this were true, there would probably be no doubt in your mind on
how the land would be used.
Yet the future of Vancouver's
1,700 acre backyard, the University
Endowment Lands, remains
undecided.
The provincial government holds
the title to the lands today. In 1923
the provincial government set aside
the land to generate revenue for the
university. Thus the term "endowment lands."
But the most valuable land in
Department
closures
possible
Your department may be gone
when you register next year.
Especially if you're an arts student.
B.C. universities will be "lucky"
to get the same funds as this year
and should expect to cut programs,
according to Andy Soles, assistant
deputy minister of universities.
And he said universities will likely
retain "hard core" programs such
as engineering and business administration while courses such as
the humanities may be cut.
"It is strange that a (spokesperson) for the ministry of education
would comment on proper budget
allocations within each university,"
said faculty association president
Jonathan Wisenthal.
But while deans at Simon Fraser
University have been warned by
their administration to prepare for
major cuts, the faculty at UBC have
not been contacted.
"I can't give you any comment
on (possible cutbacks) because I
haven't been informed officially,"
science dean Cy Finnegan said
Wednesday.
But student arts senator Lisa
Hebert called the cuts "another example of (the Social Credit government's) anti-intellectual attitude."
"Do we want to redefine the
university as a technical
institution," she asked.
Another student senator, Nadine
McDonnel, said if UBC does start
cutting entire programs, it must
carefully establish priorities first.
McDonnel sits on the senate
academic priorities committee.
At the University of Victoria,
faculty association president Gordon Schrimpton said the academic
community should not get too
alarmed at the threat of cuts.
"From past experience the
government gives gloom and doom
predictions at this time of year,"
Schrimpton said. "The actual
amount is usually four to eight per
cent more (than the government
threatens to offer)."
UBC has been hit by more than
$14 million in cutbacks this year.
The next fiscal year begins April 1.
Vancouver is not providing any income, to the university. UBC's
board of governors is trying to turn
the situation around.
"The issue is, that UBC have
more land for its future purposes,"
meeting chair Byron Olson told
about 100 people Dec. 2 at a
public forum on the future of the
UEL.
Olson said UBC's current relationship to the UEL centres around
UBC's right to the ownership of the
land.
The board claims a historical
right to the land.
"The board's rationale is to take
over the UEL. Apart from the
geographical issue (of retaining the
land next to the university) . . . it's
based on historical purpose," said
board member Peter Pearse.
"The original idea was an endowment of land to the university,"
said university chancellor J. Clyne.
"We're not acting in the petty interests of the university but for the
people of B.C. We feel it's in the interests of the people of B.C. to
maintain the UEL," he said.
But Point Grey citizens do not
hold the same opinion. At the
forum, they rejected UBC's attempt
to take over  the  UEL, claiming
iUBC is already "adequately endowed."
"UBC has a significant amount
of space . . . it's one of the largest
campuses in North America," said
Olson.
If UBC were granted title to the
land some of it would be developed
to provide a source of revenue to
the university, Clyne said.
"If the title were transferred
now, all of the area south of West
16th Ave. and north of Chancellor
boulevard would be park. In between these two areas would be property to be developed when it
became provident to do so. The
development would help out the
university and the government
wouldn't be forced to make cuts (in
the university's budget)," he said.
There have been two proposals
on how to develop the land. One
suggestion is to use the land as a
location for an industrial research
center, the other is for public housing.
The position of the board is to
build low-cost housing at some
point in the future, said Clyne.
"We'd look forward to doing
some low-cost housing but not right
away. Now that (housing) prices are
down I don't think it would be
wise," he said.
But a 1976-77 public opinion
study on the use of the UEL showed
most people oppose the development of the land for housing projects. Public opinion was 99 per
cent in favor of keeping the land for
recreation.
Olson said public opinion remains the same today. Many
citizens confirmed this at
the forum.
Developing some areas of the
UEL may destory surrounding
parts where ecological reserves are
located, one person pointed out.
"The greatest endowment of all
would be to preserve the land as a
park for all of the citizens for all
time," said one citizen.
Fee votes tabled

"I AM NOT A CROOK," declared man on roof of UBC greenhouse. Man
claimed he was in fact a physical plant employee and not plant burglar.
Man also claimed he- was not seen taking plants from building in spite of
fact there was nobody around to coroborate his story. "I was just fixing
windows and not spying," he said. Man did not give his name and denied
any association with RCMP.

Students giveth, and the board
taketh away.
The board of governors decided
at its monthly meeting Tuesday to
defer approval of two Alma Mater
Society student fee increases.
The AMS sought board approval to collect its $20 general fee
increase approved in November by
referendum, and to collect a new
$1.50 per unit fee for summer session students that allows them to
join the AMS and use its facilities.
The board deferred until its
February meeting "so the AMS and
the registrar can work out administrative and technical aspects,"
board chair Leslie Peterson said.
Peterson assured the board a
February decision would be early
enough to allow fee alterations to
be printed in academic calenders.
"We wanted a further report
from the administration," Peterson
said Wednesday. "It will still be on
time to get in the calendar."
Student   board   representatives
Dave Dale and Ron Krause did not
speak to the motion.
Universities minister Pat McGeer
will discuss in January making
AMS fees voluntary.
But AMS president Dave Frank
wasn't happy to hear of the fee increases deferral.
"I think that means the funds
don't come in," said Frank, adding
summer session students may have
to wait until 1984 to join the AMS.
In other board business, library
borrowing privileges for faculty
may now be suspended for failure
to pay fines.
The board concurred with a
senate library committee recommendation to senate, which stated
"Senate policy intended to treat all
library borrowers equitably is not
working as well as it should because
some borrowers do not return overdue material requested by others.
The present rules fails to provide an
effective means of ensuring that
penalties assessed to faculty
members are ultimately paid."
Senate seats vacant, board campaign here
By CRAIG BROOKS
While student representative
positions on UBC's senate are going
unfilled, there is an election on for
board of governors.
As of Wednesday, three students
had applied for the two board positions. Ted McNabb, currently a student court judge, will take on Alma
Mater president Dave Frank and
student council arts representative

'Prof used women students for models'
Anonymous leaflets posted on
the University of Victoria campus
Monday have levelled serious
charges at a UVic professor.
The leaflets accuse economic professor Ezra Mishan of abusing his
position and advocate his removal
on the basis of several allegations.
The leaflets referred to
statements alleging Mishan used his
office ' 'to interview women for the
purpose of using them as models in
his home."
It went on to claim the modelling
"may consist of obscene and
degrading poses, and may in fact be
of some danger to the women involved."
The leaflets did not cite any firm
evidence to support the claim and
no one has come forward to claim
responsibility for its circulation.
Gun carrier stalked Buchanan
It could not have been John Hinckley because
Jodie Foster does not go to UBC.
"I don't want to sound paianoid," said a nervous woman as she barged into a Buchanan
classroom Wednesday afternoon. "But there's a
man outside with a gun and I think you should lock
your door."
No-one moved. A woman sprang up and locked
the doors while the rest of the class chattered nervously. "I'd sort of like to live to write my
Christmas exams!" decided one student. "Where
are the police?" asked another.
"It was the dean's office who called me,"said
Creative Writing secretary Connie Bardley. "They
just said that someone was walking around with a
gun in the Buchanan building.
"We were told to close all the doors and we
notified everyone who was in class to lock their
doors. It was an older man with white hair. Some
students saw him and called the RCMP.
"Apparently, the RCMP searched for about an
hour and then they just gave up," she said.
Arts dean Robert Will's secretary said her office
had not heard anything more about the event.
"You should phone the RCMP. They were here."
"No, there's no-one here who would know,"
said RCMP constable Groenk several times. "I
really couldn't tell you anything about it. We don't
even say anything to the Vancouver Sun.
"There's probably a file on it somewhere," he
said finally.
A UVic student newspaper inquiry has produced a student who is
willing to support many of the
leaflet's claims.
Wendy Warren agreed to talk to
the Martlet newspaper regarding a
late September interview she had
with Mishan in his office.
Warren said the interview included several comments from Mishan
that seemed "unprofessional." She
said Mishan asked her how her
friends felt about the modelling and
if they felt responsible for her.
She said she told Mishan her
friends approved and she supposed
they felt responsible.
Warren said Mishan's response
was something to the effect of "oh,
so they expect to see you again."
She said Mishan asked her if she
was a karate expert and if she
trusted him.
Mishan was investigated earlier
this year by UVic administration
and was asked to stop using his office for interviews.
"One of the last things he said to
me before I left the office was
'Well, you brazen little hussy, I'll
call you in a few days.' "
election. Dale is graduating this
year, and Krause, a medical student, has devoted little time to
board activities this year, making it
unlikely he will run for re-election.
Only McNabb and student council medicine representative Sherri
Dickinson have filed nominations
for the five at-large senate positions.
Incumbent senator Ann Rahmse
said Tuesday she will also seek election. Rahmse was appointed fo the
position in November by the AMS
selection committee to fill a senate
vacancy.
But it seems nobody wants to
represent individual faculties on the
senate. Except in Law. As of
Wednesday, two candidates, Jim
Hanson and Peter Kendall, had filed nominations for the law senator
position.
All other faculty positions have
no applications.
"Nobody has even mentioned
senate," AMS external affairs coordinator Cynthia Southard said
Tuesday.
Deadline for nominations is the
last day of this term, Dec. 22. Elections will be held Jan. 17 and 18.
If Copping wins a board seat, she
would become the first woman student elected to the board since student representation was started in
1972 by an NDP government.
"What, oh fuck," said Frank,
when told about the dirth of applications, "I am going to have to
get on the phone." Page 22

$5,000 for non-existent report
By ROBERT BEYNON
The Alma Mater Society paid
$5,000 for a report never written,
but the writer has an excuse, AMS
president Dave Frank said Wednesday.
"It was supposed to be finished
at the end of summer," Frank said.
"But Dave Dale is totally
swamped."
Dale, a student board of governors representative, was hired over
57 applicants for the job of writing
a university accessibility study this
summer. Dale only finished sections
on summer employment and student aid by summer's end but the
AMS extended the study due date,
Frank said.
Frank said the AMS commissioned the report so the society could
approach the provincial government with facts when they argue for
student concerns.
"Dale said (sometime ago) if we
didn't have a report by next council
meeting he would resign. Council
still lacks a report and Dale has not
quit," student senator Lisa Hebert
said.
Hebert also said while the Inside
UBC magazine editor received his
final cheque after the magazine was
published, the AMS has already
paid Dale in full.
Frank said Dale failed to finish
the report because things didn't
come together, he is a board
member and his father died.
In contrast to Frank's excuse for
Dale, the committee who chose
Dale said his being a board
representative should not affect his
report. ^
Frank   said   Wednesday,   "The    f|i
report should be finished the first
day    back    from    Christmas
holidays."
Frank said the report would not
become outdated. "I don't think
the world changed drastically in the
last four months."
Hebert said the report being outdated is a possibility but she would
not condemn the report until she
saw it.
Dale could not be reached for
comment.
Feds to discuss
Funding future
OTTAWA (CUP) — Don't look
now, but while you're nibbling on
Christmas turkey your post-
secondary institution's funding
future is going to be undermined.
The first stage of long-feared
changes to the federal-provincial arrangements on funding for
Canada's hundreds of post-
secondary institutions could be implemented within a few weeks.
The current Established Programs Financing deal, implemented
in 1977, expires in March, 1983.
Federal and provincial finance
ministers will meet again Dec. 17 to
discuss modifying or replacing it.
Staff of the Canadian Federation
of Students (CFS) suspect a deal
could be reached and rushed
through parliament before students
return to classes in January.
Federal officials have been vague ■
in meeting with CFS, refusing to indicate what new funding formula
the federal government might implement.
CFS executive officer Diane
Flaherty said the federal cabinet is
split over the issue of education
funding. Some hardliners want Ottawa to get out of post-secondary
funding entirely. This is a very
unlikely possibility, but Flaherty expects the government to make major cuts in accord with its
philosophy that everyone should
tighten their belts.
The first stage in this would see
education transfers to the provinces
come under the six and five formula. If EPF were continued,
federal transfers would rise with the
nominal increase in the gross national product, but CFS expects increases to be limited to six per cent
in 1983-84 and five per cent in
1984-85. The Canadian Association
of University Teachers estimates a
nine per cent increase would be
needed to maintain already reduced
levels of services, assuming salaries
would be under 6-5 wage controls.
In the longer term, the federal
government is dissatisfied with the
return it is getting on the $3.7
billion it will spend on post-
secondary education in 1982-83.
Flaherty said they are looking at
returning to a variation on the matching grants system that existed in
the decade before 1977.
The federal government matched
provincial education funding dollar
for dollar under the old system, but
this time they are examining an
allowance for regional disparities.
For example, under this system the
federal government would contribute a higher percentage of
education costs for Prince Edward
Island than Alberta.
The Liberals claim their government funds 60 per cent of post-
secondary education costs, so a
matching grants formula would
mean cuts of hundreds of
millions of dollars.

RADICAL MESSIAH BLESSES CROWD. Child, born to unwed teenage mother, will bring human rights, end
nuclear weapons and create economic equality, UBC minister George Hermanson claims. Hermanson claims
mother bore child Messiah in East End hotel after parents kicked out daughter, who claims birth is divine, and
refused longshoreman's proposal. Walk across Georgia Straight is planned, when Messiah can walk.
Wrapping up 7982, money, money, strike
TA strike
vote Friday
UBC teaching assistants and
markers will be voting Friday
whether to take strike action to
back up current contract demands.
The vote will be held from 10
a.m. to 4 p.m. in the TA union office, Armouries 204.
All members of the bargaining
unit, whether union members or
not, are entitled to vote. Identification, such as a student card or
drivers license is required.
Results will be announced Monday at a noon-hour TA union
meeting in the graduate student centre.
Health grants dead
There is no more funding for the
health science bursary program, an
education ministry official said
Wednesday.
Education ministry assistant
Dereck Debiasio said all funds have
been distributed.
"We are aware of the problem,
but any more money must come
from the health ministry," said
director of university programs
Dean Goard.
Health minister Jim Nielson was
unavailable for comment, but aide
Richard Basset said "no
comment."
Greg Cassap, a student who applied for a bursary, registered a
complaint with the provincial ombudsoffice. The ombudsoffice is
working on preventing the problem
of inadequate funding from recurring.
"This won't help the students
who are affected by the cutbacks
this year," said Cassap.
"It looks like a lost cause," said
UBC assistant awards officer Dan
Worsley.
Health science bursaries are
available for students enrolled in
health programs who require financial assistance beyond the Canada
student loan program. In past years
funding has been adequate to cover
student needs, but this year many
students who applied for and expected a bursary will not receive it.
A sign of sick times?
UBC's Health Science centre is in
the midst of an identity crisis. A 12
by two foot sign, simply identifying
the building as the health science
centre was removed Nov. 22 by person or persons unknown.
"I don't know why they'd take
it," said Roger Black, fire safety officer at HSC. "I suppose it's a
spoof. We don't mind that, but we
sure would like our sign back."
Black said it would cost $400 to
$500 to replace the sign.
"The hospital is already in a funding deficit," he said. "This could
directly affect health care."
The thieves seemed to have
wanted the rather bland sign badly.
"They, whoever they are, have
tried to take it before," Black said.
The potential criminals were
frightened off by campus security
during the first attempt, he said.
Cyclist hd-'d
A visitor killed in a car-bike
collision on campus Nov. 30 has
been identified as Zhong Tai Zhang
of Peking, China.
Zhang,  45, a visiting  scholar,
worked at the Triumf nuclear
research facility on campus. He was
on a one year exchange program.
Zhang was killed while turning
left from Wesbrook onto Student
Union boulevard while returning to
Gage residence from work. He was
struck by a car proceeding south
along Wesbrook.
Campus RCMP officer Andy
Rushcall said Tuesday the force has
essentially completed their investigation and passed it onto the
provincial coroner for investigation.
"(The RCMP) have no charges
contemplated against the driver,"
Rushcall said. The last time a fatal
accident occurred on the University
Endowment Lands was two years
ago, he said.
Zhang is survived by a wife and
two children.
Fees free in 1983?
B.C. universities minister Pat
McGeer will not raise the question
of voluntary student society fees
before the provincial cabinet until
the new year, a univers:ties ministry
official said recently.
McGeer said at the B.C. Social
Credit party convention Nov. 16 he
would discuss the topic with the
cabinet the following Monday.
McGeer said student society fees
provide a barrier to post-secondary
education and are part of a' 'closed-
shop" operation.
James Bennett, McGeer's executive assistant, said Friday he
wasn't sure if McGeer was recommending making the fees voluntary.
McGeer had simply promised to
take the topic before cabinet for
discussion, he said.
The UBC Alma Mater Society fee
was recently raised by $20 in a
referendum. However, the UBC
board of governors voted Tuesday
to table passing the increase until at
least February.
McGeer made the promise
following a comment by Simon
Fraser University student Terry
Hewitt. Hewitt said his student fees
go towards "leftist" organizations.
Porn protest
With two down and 11 to go,
protestors against Red Hot Video
will set up pickets Saturday at all remaining outlets in B.C.
Public opposition against the
pornography distribution chain has
grown over the past two months,
with pickets, window-breaking
and/or fire-bombing hitting all
Lower Mainland and Victoria
storefronts.
Saturday's wave of protest will
see pickets at all B.C. Red Hot
storefronts from 2 to 3 p.m. The
Vancouver Status of Women is
helping co-ordinate the protest, and
can be reached at 736-1313.
The flame of protest was fuelled
dramatically Nov. 22 when a
firebomb gutted the Surrey outlet.
An attempted firebombing the same
morning at the Port Coquiltlam
outlet, caused owner Brian Trent to
close down last week.
The bombings drew considerable
media attention to Red Hot, which
rents out videos of torture, gang
rape and child pornography. There
are two outlets in Vancouver; Robson and Denman, and Main and
16th.
People planning to picket the
Main and 16th outlet will meet at
1:30 p.m. at the Little Mountain
Neighborhood House. Page 24
