Cops claim vandalism
RCMP Sgt. Al Hutchinson and
quasi cop chief David Hannah both
claimed Thursday that vandalism
on campus has been way down
since the Alma Mater Society
closed down all AMS-opereted
drinking facilities Oct. 20.
"There has been a substantial
decrease in the amount of vandalism in the past two weeks since
the Pit has closed," Hannah said.
And Hutchinson said the campus
has been extremely quiet except
for one night — when some
students staged a "drink-in"
protesting the closure of drinking
Neither Hannah nor Hutchinson
produced figures to support their
They made the remarks at a
meeting called by the student
administrative commission to
discuss vandalism at UBC and its
Garbage OK,
warm meat
is a no-no
Canadian University Press
The same Burnaby health unit-
that refused to shut down Simon
Fraser University when it was-
plagued by overflowing toilets and
piles of garbage during its recent
strike has shut down the student
deli for leaving meat and cheese on
the counter.
The deli-lunch in the student-run
university centre building will not
be allowed to open under existing
conditions according to manager
Bill Birge.
Birge made this statement to the
UCB board of management at a
Tuesday meeting. An hour before
the meeting, a Burnaby health unit
inspector told Birge the meat,
cheese and vegetables must be
refrigerated to 40 degrees
fahrenheit or below if they are kept
in the open longer than 20 minutes.
Because the deli service was
available from noon to 2 p.m., and
prepared on unrefrigerated
counters, it was ruled illegal.
The refrigeration unit for the deli
is costly and the UCB has no funds
at the moment to buy and install
Birge also doubted that the
compressor in the UCB is capable
of holding any new cooler units.
Asked why recent renovations
overlooked the health laws, Birge
said the health inspector was involved i n drawing up the blueprints
of the renovations.
Birge said the inspector visited
several times during the
rebuilding, but was apparently not
aware of the deli operations.
And Goodbrand and Associates,
a firm that plans pubs and eating
facilities, approved the downstairs
counter. The company apparently
neglected to tell anyone of the
health regulation.
The Burnaby health unit made
repeated trips to SFU during the
strike, but allegedly could not find
sufficient evidence of unsanitary
conditions to shut the university
down despite widespread student
dissatisfaction with the cleanliness
of the campus and residences.
In a survey conducted by the
UCB board last week, the overwhelming response was for the
retention of the deli operation.
Some 824 out of 970 students polled
favored the deli.
Birge is currently investigating
the possibility of using loose ice
until a refrigeration unit is installed.
relationship to drinking. Present at
the meeting were SAC members,
residence and undergraduate
society representatives, Hutchinson, Hannah and some administration representatives.
Hannah also said the situation on
campus has been very good except
for a set of incidents on the night of
the drink-in protest. He said signs
were pushed over and bent bet

At the meeting Hutchinson
complained about the possibility of
near-riot conditions occurring on
the campus as a result of too many
people being involved in drinking
events at the SUB and Gage
"You tell me what three
policemen can do with 3,000 people
in various stages of intoxication,"
he said.
Hutchinson also said the failure
of liquor license operators to cut off
service to drunks was a major
problem at UBC.
"The AMS refusing service to
intoxicated people is probably the
most important thing and right
now that is not being done," he

Hutchinson said he couldn't
recall any charges of willful
damage being laid against UBC
students this year though it has
happened in the past.
He said there have been cases of
intoxicated students being taken
downtown to a detoxification
centre, though no charges were
Hutchinson said the proposed
changes to the operation of AMS
drinking facilities may cause him
to take another look at the position
he took in a report to the Liquor
Administration Branch last month.
Answering a question by one
representative about the severity
of the AMS decision to shut down
all AMS run liquor licenses,
president's representative Byron
Hender said, "There was no
recognition of the problem before
— there sure is now."
Student administrative commission chairman Phil Johnson
said he hoped changes in the
operation of the AMS drinking
facilities would satisfy the RCMP
and the LAB.
Johnson rejected the idea of
hiring professional waiters and
bouncers to run the operations.
"Students should be responsible
for their own events. We shouldn't
have to hire bigger and better
bouncers," he said.
Area co-ordinators for UBC's
three student residences said steps
have been taken to reduce the
problems of vandalism and in-
toxification at residence-sponsored
drinking "events.
Place Vanier area co-ordinator
Josh Gruber said new guidelines
have been established for the
operation of special permit liquor
licenses in residence functions.
The student representative
assembly voted Oct. 20 to close the
Pit and Lethe after the student
representative commission
recommended the pub be closed
for a month. The SAC based its
recommendation on the assumption that Hutchinson had sent a
letter to the Liquor Administration
Branch recommending the pub's
liquor permit be suspended.
But Hutchinson said later he had
never recommended the Pit be
closed, although he said he approved of the SRA's move.
LAB general manager Vic
Woodland said last week he had
seen Hutchinson's report and he
had decided the LAB should launch
an investigation into conditions at
the Pit.
Tenure submission states obvious
A board of governors committee studying
tenure at UBC has prepared a preliminary
draft report and is expected to produce a final
report in December.
But there's little doubt the report will do
nothing beyond stating the obvious.
The Ubyssey has learned the report says
tenure has existed for a long time, provides a
form of job security, and allows faculty
members to speak out about issues such as
abortion, evolution and politics without fearing
reprisals from their colleagues or higher-ups.
The report also says the purpose of tenure is
to provide academic freedom for faeulty.
The two and one-half page draft report,
which makes no recommendations about
tenure, was prepared by the university administration after the board's staff committee
requested administration input on the subject.
The draft, which the board committee will
revise before presenting to the board, is expected to be presented to senate for discussion
at senate's February meeting.
The staff committee, composed of board
members George Hermanson, Sadie Boyles,
Pat Chubb and Ben Trevino, undertook an
investigation of tenure after senate approved a
motion last March initiated by student senators
Ron Walls and Gordon Funt.
Walls and Funt asked that a board committee
investigate "the criteria used in granting
tenure and the relative strength placed on these
criteria, the methods used in ascertaining
performance and how the criteria are applied
to measuring academic strength and balances."
The board committee began its investigation
by looking at the Faculty Handbook, which
says the criteria used in granting tenure are
teaching ability, research, the quality of
research and quality of community participation.
It then discussed how the criteria should be
applied and how important each should be.
Hermanson said in an interview Thursday
there are no students or faculty on the committee because it was not formed strictly for
the purpose of examining tenure.
He added that if faculty members were on the
committee there could be a possible conflict of
No students sit on the staff committee — non-
student Rick Murray, who acts as one student
representative on the board sits on the board's
property committee and student member Basil
Peters belongs to the finance committee.
Hermanson said the committee is particularly interested in the problem of teaching
He added: "The committee will report to the
board, and after the board votes on it, it will be
referred to the senate. We'll say this is what we
learned and senate will say that's not what we
wanted to hear."
Hermanson said that the student senators
who initiated the investigation of tenure are
particularly concerned about the role of
students in teaching evaluation and tenure
But, he said, the role students have in tenure
decisions was never made part of the board
committee's terms of reference, and therefore,
the committee did not consider student input in
tenure decisions.
The emphasis on teaching ability in the
granting of tenure and the input of students in
evaluating teaching ability have been issues at
Students have complained that the only input
they have into decisions of which professors get
tenure are teaching evaluation questionnaires
which are used in some faculties. Page 2

'Upcoming civic voto a farco'
This year's Vancouver civic
election was called a "farce"
Thursday by Aid. Mike Harcourt
and Aid. Darlene Marzari, who are
running as independents in the
Nov. 17 election.
Speaking to 100 law students, the
two former members of The
Electors Action Movement
lashed out at the current system
which forces voters to choose from
117 candidates for 27 positions and
ensures west-side domination of
"We're running in a monstrosity

collapse under.its own weight,"
said Harcourt. "It really is a
Predicting that council will
again be dominated by west-side,
male WASPs, Harcourt compared
the aldermanic race to the "CKLG
top ten."
While Marzari called for a formal ward system in the city, she
said "we do have a ward system. It
serves the citizens of Kerrisdale,
and the citizens of Point Grey.
"The west side gets its hearing.
The east side does not."
When asked if he would push for
more student housing in the city,
Harcourt said, "I wouldn't. It's
about my fourth priority."
He said housing for students who
want to live on their own is a
"luxury," but added housing is a
high priority for out-of-town
Another issue, he said, is "the
destruction of good, sound housing
for expensive condominiums,
which is hurting low-income
In the case of the Huntington
apartments, good housing is being
torn down to be replaced with 43
condominium units cbsting $120,000
each, he said.
"Developers have rights to make
millions of dollars while we have
all the problems. This isn't so-
called free enterprise. This is
disaster," said Harcourt.
Marzari said that while in office

She called on law students to

current conservative lawyers, who
control the city's law department.
She said it is cheaper to build in

NSD is day of concern-not a protest
OTTAWA (CUP) — National
Student Day, the first nation-wide
student action in years, is shaping
up to be a rather sedentary affair.
Student leaders are billing the
Tuesday event as a day of
discussion and concern rather than
a   day   of   protest.   No   demon
strations or pickets are planned
but some local organizers are
calling for students to boycott
The National Union of Students
decided in May that some kind of
action was necessary to express
students'   concern   about   issues
Status of women committee
finally gets rolling after delays
After a delay of almost six
months, the union staff committee
on the status of women at UBC has
finally started work.
Terms of reference for the
committee, which is one of four set
up by UBC president Doug Kenny
last year, were drawn up in May.
But the committee didn't hold its
first meeting until Wednesday.
Frances Wasserlein, one of three
Association of University and
College Employees reps on the
committee said Thursday the
reason for the committee's delayed
start is it took a long time to find
people to sit on it.
She said: "Because of union
election processes, we didn't get
elected until the beginning of
September. Nominations have to
open at one union meeting, and are
closed at the next one the following
"I don't know why the university
took so long appointing reps from
professional and supervisory
And even now, only three of the
four administration reps have been
named, she said.
Wasserlein, who works for the
faculty of education, said all
members of the committee have
equal status.
"Just because half the members
were appointed by the administration doesn't mean this is
going to turn into some kind of
contract negotiation committee,"
she said. "That isn't the point.
"We are a committee that
represents those women in one
particular occupational stream,
namely clerical, library and
secretarial staff."
At Wednesday's meeting, Bob
Grant, director of employee
relations at UBC gave the members more specific information
about how they should approach
their task, Wasserlein said.
"He read the terms of reference
to us. Part of it is as follows:
"The function of the committee
shall be to identify and investigate
those policies and practices which
affect the participation by women
in the work of the university'."
Wasserlein said the committee
will attempt to determine whether
the university's policies about
women in non-academic positions
are reflected by actual practices.
"We are going to be looking for
discrimination, but not in individual cases. Rather, we will be
examining the overall picture, to
see if discrimination exists on a
basic level," she said.
The committee hopes to make a
report, by next March or April,
said Wasserlein. The report will
include recommendations for
action, she said.
' "Our goal after that is to see that
these recommendations are acted
Wasserlein also said the committee welcomes information and
opinions from anybody interested
in its work.

No sacred animals left—prof
Man no longer makes a fetish of nature as a force
which threatens him, William Leiss, professor of
political science and environmental studies at York
University, said Thursday.
Leiss spoke about the hidden politics of the environment. He said man's relationship to.nature is a
deeply buried and hidden issue.
He said man's relationship to nature is at the deep
level compared to the manifest level of the environmental issue.
Leiss said the manifest level is the level on which
operate the economics of corporations and governmental action. He has just written a book about man's
consciousness with regard to nature.
"There are no longer any sacred places for us,"
Leiss said. "There are no sacred animals.
"We are in the process of conquering nature. We
want it (science) to give us an answer to nature all
wrapped up in a package."
Leiss claimed man is preoccupied with rational
scientific method.
Leiss spoke about the nineteenth century slaughter
of North American buffalos. He said an Indian chief
had said that without animals, man would perish
from loneliness of the spirit.
Leiss said we see nature from a practical viewpoint
as raw material for our wants.
But he said we become increasingly confused about
the nature of our wants.
"It is possible to deal with environmental crises on
an immediate level with existing institutions," he
said. Although there are no institutions to deal with
deepsea pollution crises, we may in the future
develop them, said Leiss.
At a later talk Thursday in the Arts One blue room,
Leiss said people identify with the personality advertising creates for its commodities.
The problem with needs, satisfaction and commodities today is that we have far too many commodities on the market, and their symbolic meaning
is constantly changing, so that our needs are never
satisfied, he said.
Leiss said as soon as people realize that they are
consuming commodities because tile commodities
represent the type of person they would like to be,
they will not need these commodities anymore.

Cop's fantasies shut Pit
There is a fellow in the local
RCMP detachment who has a very
good imagination.
His name is Sgt. Al Hutchinson.
And he's the man who helped
pressure the student representative
assembly "into closing down the Pit,
the Lethe and other student-run
functions involving liquor in SUB.
Sgt. Hutchinson seems to think a
student pub should be run with the
same solemn decorum as a church
What's worse, the SRA seems to
have fallen for his way of looking at
pubs, without putting up a fight,
without pointing out that things out
here at UBC — and particularly in
the Pit — have always been been
pretty damn good.
What can Hutchinson really
complain about?
Apparently, he first got rather
angry at the Pit one night when a
couple of clowns who were throwing
beer about were ordered to leavethe
place, and refused in rather unsavory
Hutchinson was called in at that
point, and got them out. He wasn't,
happy that people who were getting
drunk and rowdy were getting away
with those kinds of antics.
He's right. A couple of incidents
like that have happened. And they
shouldn't have. There should be
stricter control of who gets served in
the Pit, and drunks shouldn't get
But they're not going to get
served under the new regulations
being set up for the Pit. Regulations,
we might add, which were going to
be put into effect even if the Pit
hadn't closed down.
What other things has Hutchinson
griped about in the Pit?
He says that one night when he
visited the' Pit, he noticed between
50 and 75 people actually standing
up with beer. He was shocked. It
indicated to him that the Pit wasn't
being properly controlled.
But just think about all the things
Hutchinson didn't notice that night
— or wouldn't have any other night
— in the Pit.
He didn't see any drugs being
sold. There weren't any prostitutes
or pimps making money for
organized crime. There weren't
people taking bottles to one
another's heads, or bleeding
profusely during fights. There
weren't any guns or knives hidden
under people's clothing.
Yet those things happen at any
number of bars downtown or
elsewhere in the city.
So why should the Pit have to be
Why wasn't it enough for
Hutchinson to realize that new rules
and a tighter system of serving
people was going to be instituted,
and then watch to see how they
worked out?
It's as though the iron hand has
been smashed down, and it's landed
squarely on the Pit.
It's unfair. Compared to other
pubs, the Pit is a church.
It's interesting to speculate on
what the man wants. Does he want
the engineers to never chant their
favorite chant again? Will that please
him? People who are sitting down
can be as obnoxious as those
standing up —and table hopping has
always been a favorite and harmless
habit of frequent Pit visitors.
Does Hutchinson want to control
the Pit? Does he want it regimented?
Everybody silent, at attention and
He seems to have forgotten one
thing. It's a student pub, not a den
of evil happenings. It never was.
And by being so ready to accept
Hutchinson's word — or imagination
— for everything he says, the Alma
Mater Society seems to have
forgotten that too.

It has been suggested that the
abuse of alcohol has resulted in a
host of campus problems, and the
Alma Mater Society has invited
debate on this issue.
It would seem that nobody is sure
whether these problems result
from alcohol or not. On that basis, I
wouldlike to reveal some imposing
information which suggests that
alcohol is not a cause of society's
ills, but might, in fact, be a cure.
For example, medical opinion
supports a finding of the Society of
Canadian Organizers to Control
Heterosexuality (SCOTCH) that in
cases of extreme consumption of
alcohol, the incidence of venereal
disease is inversely proportional to
the amount consumed.
In addition, alcohol is an excellent contraceptive, in that it has
prevented the births of many infamous scoundrels.
Also, the Canadian branches of

Although I did not attend the
recent series of meetings at which
Harry Schwarz, the South African
MP, attempted to present his views

to read of the manner in which he
was thwarted by a group of self-
appointed censors.
I was particularly disappointed
to learn lhat one of my colleagues,
Allen Soroka, was among those
who disrupted the meetings. It is
sad to see an intelligent and articulate man, one who is well
-equipped to confront the ideas
which he dislikes with reasoned
argument, turning instead to the
tactics which Hitler used during
his rise to power in the 1920s and
early 1930s.

shouted down Schwarz denied him
the democratic right to speak.
They also deprived his audience of

CLC day of protest marks
transition of trade unionism
The importance of the Canadian Labor
Congress day of protest should not be
discounted despite the general verdict that
it was a qualified failure.
In the face of blanket media hostility and
varied attempts at intimidation by both
public and private employers, the ability of
Canadian labor's leadership to persuade
more than one million workers to engage in
the first ever political strike on a national
scale constitutes a turning point of some
This qualitatively new politicization of
trade unionism is however at present only
weakly developed and demands a more
coherent strategy if it is to reshape national,
political life in a manner that corresponds to
labor's long term interests.
Organized labor in Canada represents
some one-third of the work force and is by no
means co-existent with the working-class as
a whole.
Largely confined to what can be broadly
categorized as the large corporate sector
and state employees, organized labor has
been able until recently to win an increasing
standard of living for its own membership
while only tokenistically invoking its
commitment to political change through a
tenuous alliance with the NDP.
Large monopolistic corporations have
usually been able to accommodate the wage
demands of their own employees by passing
on wage increases in- the form of higher
prices, a major underlying a cause of the
inflationary bias of all advanced capitalist
There can be little doubt that despite the
coincidence of economic recession and
pronounced inflation, organized labor was
largely able to maintain its own relative
position while the real victims have been the
unemployed, the working poor and others
whose position in the work force is at best
CLC resistance to wage controls is
founded upon the amply justified belief that
inflation and recession is now to be fought at
their expense.
After a period in which unions were able to
substantially regain losses incurred at the
start of the recent inflationary spiral and
make inroads into corporate profits as the
economic recession commenced, the state
Working people

to pay the cost
of maintaining

exploitive system.
Let them eat less pie, more fees
The Alma Mater Society letter to
education minister Pat McGeer reveals the
usual self interest endemic on this campus.
If students have trouble making ends
meet, it is less likely to be because of
exorbitant fees than because what in times
past were, and in other countries are
luxuries, have become needs, the denial of
which has become inconceivable to them.
Like ferry fares and insurance premiums
before they were raised, tuition fees have
become unrealistically low.
Apparently the complaint isn't that funds
will be reduced but that they will not be
In other words, there must be cutbacks in
programs and silent firing in order that
faculty, staff and administration might
continue to draw the fat increments granted
them in already agreed upon give-away
Surely if they were interested in quality of
education, faculty could forego their usual
raises and index their incomes not to the
cost of living, but to the monies available.
As for the staff, they could easily take a 20
per cent rollback and still have a good thing.
I also notice that the appeal is not that our
education will suffer, but that our social
mobility will be reduced. Is this a diploma
mill or a place of learning?
In answer to those who claim that higher
fees make access more elitist, there is
always student aid, which, contrary to the
letter, makes every effort to see that no
student need forfeit an education for want of
If there is a fee increase next year, it will
clearly be a case of students paying the
raises of those who work here.
To the degree that the cost of educational
materials rises, student tuition fees should
rise proportionately, but in view of the
greater security and cushy working conditions for wage earners up here, I do not
think parity or more than parity with the
productive sector is necessary.
There is a finite pie. The fairest way to cut
it up would be for students to contribute
more tuition, and for faculty, staff and
administration to take a cut in pay.

The Liberal government's strategy is
essentially to promote investment to get the
economy moving by bolstering corporate
profits while holding the line on wage increases in excess of productivity gains.
They also intend to markedly slow down
the rate of increase of government spending, most importantly in the areas of
education, health and social security
Such policies represent an attempt to
force working people as a whole to pay the
costs of the present economic downturn in
the form of lower real wages and reduced
state benefits. They do nothing, despite
Liberal protestations, to bring about a more
equitable distribution of income and wealth
or create a more just society.
The CLC would like nothing better than a
return to the halcyon days of free wage
bargaining which secured a relatively
amicable relationship between the union
bureaucracies, the corporations and the
Yet the era of the post-war boom and
continued economic expansion is now at an
end. Increases in living standards, full
employment and better social services
increasingly conflict with corporate
demands for higher profits to sustain their
competitiveness in increasingly tight world
In the words of the prime minister, our
expectations must be "readjusted."
This is the necessary price of expansion
exacted by a capitalist economy in crisis, an
economy increasingly characterized by the
simultaneous appearance of high rates of
unemployment and inflation coinciding with
low profitability.
Working people are to be forced to pay the
cost of maintaining an unjust exploitive
system whose essential credo is production
for profit rather than the fulfillment of
human needs.
Labor flounders in this changed objective
economic reality. It voices the demand for a
full "partnership" in national economic
planning, stretching the long atrophied
muscles of a not insubstantial
organizational strength.
Yet state economic planning within a
capitalist economic order must necessarily
take as its starting point private control of
the investment and other decisions which
determine the nature and rate of economic
Business hostility
The state in a capitalist economy cannot
be a neutral arbiter between competing
"sectional interests." It cannot rationally
plan the economy in the interests of all, as
Galbraith and Trudeau enjoin us to believe
to the horror of the devotees of the free
market, so long as the most fundamental
economic decisions are left to the large
In an economic order whose motive force
is the logic of the profitable accumulation of
capital, trade union integration within a
process of economic planning is merely to
surrender what little countervailing power
labor possesses for the illusion of consultation and recognition so beloved of the
piqued bureaucrats of the CLC.
How then to explain the seeming hostility
of business to wage and price controls?
In brief, Galbraith and Trudeau's understanding of the changed reality of the
capitalist system and its need is more acute
than that of the free market ideology in
which business has veiled itself.
The state must reconcile the demands of
business with those of other interests in
order to maintain the balance and cohesion
of capitalist society as a whole.
Business may at times be singularly
ungrateful, but that is not to deny that
Trudeau's policies do indeed serve their
long-term interests as the more enlightened
corporate spokesmen recognize.
The point is that any return to the free
market is a dangerous illusion — whose
corollary would be massive unemployment
and the loss of the genuine gains that have
been made by labor.
At the same time, the adoption of tripartite economic management would
merely involve unions in disciplining their
own members and would further undermine
the position of the unorganized who have
hitherto borne the brunt of recession.
The wider objectives of all working
Canadians for a fairer distribution of income and wealth, for control of the giant
foreign and domestic corporations whose
decisions profoundly affect their lives and
for a truly comprehensive welfare state
would go by the board, despite the
protestations of the CLC manifesto.
Labor cannot respond to wage and price
controls by an assertion of traditional wage
In the long run, such a strategy is self-
Wage increases are passed on by the
monopolies and also drive a wedge between
workers in different sections of the community and labor as a whole.
The only way forward is for the CLC to

would reject wage controls in a capitalist
context and build support on the basis of a
meaningful alternative which could attract

of traditional
wage militancy.
Such a program would call for real price
controls, a significant extension of public
ownership into the profitable resource and
manufacturing sectors, stringent
redistributive taxation and the wide extension of an inadequate system of social
welfare policies.
Only the long-term objective of creating a
genuinely planned economy on the basis of
democratic control can unite the some 90
per cent of Canadians who live by selling
their labor and can promote their best interests.
The emergence of such an alternative can
come only from pressure both within and
without the CLC and the NDP to move away
from acceptance of the constraints created
for any reforming government by the
concentration of economic power in the
hands of the large foreign and domestic

Labor's baptism...
Violent conflicts have often been a part of
the Canadian labor movement. Yet many of
the benefits the first labor leaders fought for
— the eight hour work day, pensions and
unemployment insurance — are now taken
for granted.
The Canadian labor movement dates back
to the early 1800s. At that time slavery had
only recently been abolished and many
workers were still treated as slaves. Employers did not expect them to speak out for
their rights.
Immigrants from Britain, however,
brought with them the traditions of the trade
union movement already established in
Europe. They were concerned about the
introduction of machines, just as unions
today try to maintain jobs that could be
made obsolete by automation.
One early Canadian union, the Journeyman Tailors Operative Society, which
was formed in Toronto in 1852, opposed the
introduction of Singer sewing machines into
their shops.
In those days laborers had to keep their
union work a secret. There was no unemployment insurance and, because of the
cost, it was impossible to travel to look for
work. Often employers would band together
to blacklist known union supporters.
As well as the danger of losing their jobs,
union leaders also faced the possibility of
criminal charges.
In the 1872 Toronto Printer's Strike,
printers and bookbinders went on strike for
a shorter, 54-hour, work week. A parade was
organized to gather public support and a
number of unions participated. A supportive
crowd of 10,000 people met in front of the
Ontario legislative buildings to hear the
strikers speak. Because of the size of the
crowd the strikers had to erect two platforms and speak in relays in order to be
heard by everyone.
The sympathy of the crowd encouraged
the strikers but that effect was destroyed
when their employers charged 24 union
leaders with seditious conspiracy. Under the
old British law, unions had been successfully charged with conspiracy. The law
had since changed in Britain and the legality
of unions had been recognized. But in
Canada the law was still in effect, creating a
dangerous situation for those involved in the
labor movement.
€ lit Id labor
However, George Brown, one of the
employers involved, was an important
Liberal and his newspaper, the Globe, was
considered to be a Liberal paper. The prime
minister, Sir John A. Macdonald, defying
the Liberals, changed the Canadian law and
sponsored a Trade Union Act to clarify the
legal status of unions. The legislation was
accepted and charges were dropped against
the union leaders.
In an attempt to unite the forces of unipns,
a meeting of representatives from Toronto's
unions was -held in March, 1871. Labor
groups in other communities also
established central councils. The councils
from Toronto and Ottawa then tried to
organize a national conference and formed
the Canadian Labor Union.
The first meeting of the CLU was attended
only by representatives from Ontario
unions. Lack of money for travelling expenses prevented others from attending but
Quebec unions sent a telegram in support.
The convention opposed the employment
of children under 10 in factories. They were
also against prison training programs and
government sponsored immigration
because they increased competition on the
job market.
The CLU came to an end in 1877 because of
economic conditions. Unions were losing
members because of unemployment and
could not afford to support a central
But the union's agitation led to the Ontario
Factory Act of 1886, the first legislation of its
kind in Canada. The act established a fine of
$100 for factory owners who hired boys
under 12 and girls under 14 years old.
Women and children were not allowed to
work more than 60 hours a week. Children
were not allowed to clean machines while
they were still in motion.
The minutes of a meeting of the Toronto
Trades and Labor Council in 1886 describes
an accident involving a 14-year-old boy who
had been sent out to work by his widowed
"She had arranged for him to learn the
cabinet business and the first morning he
started the boss placed him to work on a
shaper machine, the boy not having worked
or hadanything to do with a machine before.
Such machines being dangerous to an experienced hand and more especially to a boy
of no experience, within four hours of his
starting work he was under chloroform
having all the fingers of his left hand amputated. The boss, Mr. McGuire, refused to
compensate or do anything to assist the
There were no laws making the employer
responsible and no legislated methods of
compensation. The union could only take up
a collection and continue to take their
requests before the government.
A Royal Commission of the federal government investigated factory conditions in
1886. They found a great deal of evidence of
child abuse.
Government inspectors suspected that
under age children were hidden whenever
they came to the factories.
The law in Nova Scotia allowed 10-year-
old boys to work underground in coal mines
and one Montreal glassworks employed
children who worked all night.
Young girls who worked in cigar factories
were charged for cigars which did not pass
inspection and they were fired when they
became old enough to get more than
children's wages.
Commission investigators interviwed
children who did not know how old they were
but who looked about 12. A number of them
had fingers missing and some had missing
hands. Employers paid little attention to the
Factory Act.
One group greatly concerned with these
injustices was the Knights of Labor, a
branch of the American group which was
established in Canada in 1867. They were
more concerned with restructuring society
for the equality of all men, and with the
rhetoric of social justice, than with specific
economic questions.
The Knights encouraged women members. In the U.S. they sought black members
and encouraged mixed assemblies. But
their generally liberal attitude was not
extended to include Chinese workers in B.C.
In fact, they actively campaigned against
By 1891 the population of B.C. was close to
100,000, half of whom were Chinese or native
Indians, who were not likely to join unions.
The unions complained that Ihe Chinese
were willing to work longer hours for less
money and that they would ignore safety
regulations. This situation did create a real
problem in labor negotiations, but the racist
aspects of the Knights' campaign cannot be
The western unions were considerably
more radical than their eastern counterparts. In a 1901 miner's strike at Rossland,
B.C., wages were an issue but the main
concern was that the company was trying to
destroy their organization. The company
took legal action against the union, which
was held liable for $12,500 damage.
Legislation was later adopted to protect
unions from liability.
This legislation following the 1901 strike
was only part of a growing support for
unions, which was aided by better communication between labor groups in different parts of the country. Labor Day had
been designated an official holiday in 1894,
and in 1900 the federal government
established a Department of Labor.
In spite of increasing public support, the
labor movement was upset by internal
conflicts. The radical B.C. groups strongly
disapproved of the national Trades and
Labor Congress. In 1903, the Vancouver
Trades and Labor Council decided not to pay
its national dues and accused the national
organization of being "part of the Liberal
machine" and "an appendage of the
capitalist party." The B.C. Federation of
Labor was formed in 1911.
Brtish Columbia along with Alberta, also
supported the International Workers of the
World or 'Wobblies,' a revolutionary group
which made considerable efforts to organize
the unskilled laborers ignored by traditional
trade  unions.  The  IWW  involved   such
legendary figures of the North American
labor movement as Joe Hill, a young union
organizer who was executed on a doubtful
murder charge in Salt Lake City.
The increased employment that came
with World War I led to increased union
organization. But the war also led to greater
internal conflict.
The more radical labor leaders in western
Canada felt that the war was no concern of
the working class. They strongly opposed
military conscription while the eastern
members tried to cooperate with the
Labor had never been a strong politica
force. There was a great deal o
disagreement over how this could b
achieved. Some labor leaders favored thi
creation of a separate labor party whili
others wanted to concentrate on lobbyini
existing political parties.
In 1917, the Trades and Labor Congres;
moved to establish a Canadian Labor Part;
in an attempt to unify eastern and westeri
labor groups. At the founding convention
which was attended by 400 delegates, then
was a difference of opinion over whether th<

—Winnipeg Strike Bulletin, May 30,1919
The Winnipeg General Strike is one eyent
from the history of the Canadian Labour
Movement that is frequently overlooked
when examining the recent developments in
labour such as the Oct. 14 Day of Protest.
And yet both actions were concerned with
the maintenance of living standards, the
effectiveness of collective bargaining and
the economic strength of organized labour.
The Day of Protest was a demonstration
by the Canadian Labour Congress against
wage and price controls. Unionized labour
was reacting against the erosion of their
living standards through inflation and wage
The Winnipeg General Strike was a
demand for a "living wage", a salary increase to offset the price inflation caused by
the First World War.
This early strike spearheaded a
movement to establish the principle of
collective bargaining in wage negotiation
and later an effort to reinstate the strikers.
But the Winnipeg General Strike was also
a testing ground for an attempt to organize
all existing craft unions into one enormous
industrial union of western labourers.
Many of the Winnipeg Strike Committee
leaders were members of the so-called "One
Big Union", an historic development in
Canadian Labour that paralleled the appearances of the radical Industrial Workers
of the World, in the U.S. and similar
organizations in the British Trade Union
The Winnipeg General Strike was
triggered when the employers at Vulcan
Iron Works, Dominion Bridge of Canada,
Manitoba Bridge and Iron Works and other
railway contract shops refused to recognize
the right of 19 craft unions to collective
bargaining through one Metal Trades
This principle of collective bargaining
was and is one of the fundamental issues in
organized labour because it stabilizes the
wages for a class of work, the only
guarantee that wages would not be cut in
price wars or varied from city district to
The Winnipeg General Strike began on
May 15, 1919 as twenty seven thousand
workers walked off their jobs, in the Metal
Trades and their affiliated unions.
A Strike Committee was elected and in the
fashion of the One Big Union, they directed
the entire strike. It was not a violent protest
or rebellion but so planned as to inconvenience the general public so that they
would agree to the strikers' terms.
The Strike Committee began assuming
government functions by issuing permits to
theatres and restaurants in an effort to keep
the strikers from street protests or
On May 19, there were 35,000 workers
striking in a city of only 150,000 and citizens
from the business and professional communities formed a rival Citizens' Committee to maintain such essential services
as milk and bread delivery and fire control.
By May 26, the twelfth day of the strike,
most of the strikers had been fired and civic
employees were no longer allowed the right
to join unions or to strike.
Demobilized soldiers from the Canadian
forces in Europe began arriving in Winnipeg
on May 31, adding a new catalytic element
to the strike.
Militant soldiers representing both the
right and left wings in the strike started
demonstrations throughout the city despite
Strike Committee warnings that street
violence would break out.
By June 5, the mayor of Winnipeg had
banned all parades. Sympathetic strikes
erupted in Toronto and Calgary, and in
Vancouver 60,000 workers walked out.
The Citizens Committee organized a force
of "Special Police" to administer order. The
force met with strike supporters in the June
10th Riot.
On June 17 the Federal government intervened directly and arrested 12 strike
leaders, an event that culminated in
"Bloody Saturday" on June 21st, 1919.
A large crowd had gathered for an illegal
labour parade at Portage Avenue, across
from the city hall. The mayor ordered them
to disperse and when they did not, he called
upon the Royal North West Mounted Police
to restore order.
The 50 Mounted Police rode down the
Main Street swinging riot clubs as they
sallied through the jeering crowd.
The crowd opened to let the riders pass
and then closed behind them, knocking two
riders off their horses when the Mounties
passed through again.
The mayor read the Riot Act from the city
hall steps then the Mounted Police reformed
and drew their pistols, charging on the
surprised crowd.
Two charges and several volleys fired into
the fleeing crowd left 30 wounded and two
dead. "Special Police" wearing yellow arm
bands and carrying baseball bats cleared
out the scattered remnants of the crowd,
leaving an additional 27 wounded.
Martial Law was declared as soldiers
from the 90th Winnipeg Rifles, 100th Winnipeg Grenadiers, 106th Light Infantry and
the 79th Cameron Highlanders were
stationed in Winnipeg.
Initially it appeared that none of the
demands of the Winnipeg General Strike
had been met and that the One Big Union
had failed due to the armed intervention of
Federal troops. There were no wage increases, many strikers had lost their jobs
and strike leaders had been imprisoned.
However the effect on the nation was so
great that eventually unions won the right of
collective bargaining and some of the
organizers of the strike provided the'
leadership in the formation of the CCF, the
forerunner of the NDP, parties which
brought about political changes in the
Finally, some of the resolutions taken by
the One Big Union and regarded as
irresponsible at the time have become
accepted. The eight hour work day and
compulsory education were among these
In contrast, the Day of Protest on October
14, 1976 was a failure because of the poor
turnout of unionized labour.
The Canadian Labour Congress had called
this strike to test its economic strength and
instead of paralyzing a nation, they revealed
a lack of unity in the national organization of
But the most important comparison
between the Winnipeg General Strike and
the Day of Protest is found in the issue of
collective bargaining. In the early 20th
century, it was a hard-won right. Now it is
seen as an inalienable right by the average
worker, despite its jeopardy everytime the
provincial or federal government considers
or enacts "back to work rulings" when they
feel that negotiation through collective
bargaining has taken too long.

Labor studies go to work
In the fall of 1975 Capilano
College established a Labor
Studies program which could
become an important precedent
for education in B.C.
The program co-ordinator John
Sayre believes it is the first labor
oriented course in Canada. It
differs from industrial relations
courses offered by several eastern
labor studies co-ordinator
universities in that the emphasis is
on union administration and labor
history rather than management-
employee relations.
"We perceived that a constituency of the community was
not being served by the College,"
said Sayre. "Universities and
colleges have been offering
business administration courses
for years and some of us here felt
that it was time that labor was
Sayre got nothing but support
from the College Council and in
September 1975 the College opened
its doors to labor students.
About 60 students enrolled in the
class the first year, which is acceptable for a new program. But
this semester attendance is the
same, which is a disappointment to
Sayre. He had been hoping that the
demand for labor studies would
increase but apparently the interest is not yet that great.
"Eight courses were offered this
year but only four got going," he
said. "But we'll try to present them
all again in the spring though some
may be in a different form."
The program was developed with
the help of an advisory committee
made up of representatives from
the B.C. Federation of Labor,
which supports the program.
Several of the courses are a direct
response to a need perceived by
many provincial labor leaders for
union administration training.
Classes are offered in Shop
Steward training, union local
administration and collective
bargaining procedures which
provide skills needed by many
union members.
One of the most important
courses is a History of the Labor
Movement in B.C. As we move
farther away in time from the birth
of the trade union movement many
of the principles of unionism are
A study of the long struggle of the
workers for trade union rights
serves as a good reminder of why
the union movement is a necessary
force in the business world today.
Many of the younger members of
the modern work force see unions
as anachronistic institutions which
no longer fill a need in society. This
attitude is indicative of a misunderstanding of modern

Program is to educate students to
that need.
Sayre teaches a practical
economics class with emphasis on
technological change, increases in
productivity and the multinational
That course, in conjunction with
the history course, should give
students a basic understanding of
the political, economic and social
aspects of trade unionism. Those
"who are interested in the day-today business of running a union
may take the more practical in-
service training courses. Studies in
labor law, collective bargaining
and government intervention, and
media techniques for trade union
education are also offered.
According to Sayre no great
efforts have been made to introduce labor studies in other institutions. An effort was made last
spring at Douglas College to interest union employees in a similar
program but there was little
support shown from what is
essentially a weak union membership.
Sayre believes that labor
programs must be instigated by
individual colleges or by provincial
legislation. At the moment he sees
little chance of either happening
though he is optimistic that the tide
is turning.
Universities and colleges have
stressed the business aspect of
economics for years and have
ignored the contributions of the
labor movement. The program at
Capilano is an important first step
to rectifying that glaring omission
in B.C.'s educational program.

Apathy: bane of unions
J.N. packs groceries at $6.08 an hour. His
starting wage was $5.42. B.D. also packs
groceries. He started at $6.38 and now he
makes $7.00. Why does B.D. make 92 cents
more for doing the same job? The answer is
simple. B.D. belongs to a union.
B.D. is an employee of Canada Safeway.
As soon as he started work it was compulsory that he join the union.
PF: If you had had the choice would you
have joined the union?
B.D.: Of course, that's why we're getting
all that money.
PF: What are your union dues?
B.D.: $2.00 or $2.50 — I can't remember
which — per cheque.
PF: Did the recent strikes cause you any
B.D.: Of course! No money.
PF: Was the financial setback really
B.D.: Not really, I'm just a student. I'm
not supporting a family or anything.
PF: Did you try to find work elsewhere?
B.D.: No. I wasn't that desperate. Like I
said, I'm not exactly supporting a family.
Besides I didn't think the strike was going to
last that long.
PF: Where do you go if you have a
B.D.: I wouldn't go anywhere. I'd never
complain. I don't care what they do to me as
long as I get all that money.
PF: But what if you really had a problem,
would you know who to speak to?
B.D.: I guess not, but I'm not too worried
about that. I'm pretty happy here.
J.N. works for Woodward's and does not
belong to a union.
PF: Would you like to see Woodward's
J.N.: No. I don't think a union would do
much good here. The managers don't really
treat us too badly and even if a union did
come in here they might give us about 15 or
20 cents, but it would just come off in union
PF: What if you have a grievance, who do
you complain to?
J.N.: You don't. I've never been in that
situation. But if I were, I wouldn't go_ and
PF: Why not?
J.N.: I don't think Id get fired but I'd get
all the"dirty jobs for the next six months.
Still, if we did have a union I'd be able to
complain about management.
But what if I didn't like what the union was
doing? For instance I wouldn't have supported the Safeway strike but I'd have had
to go out anyway.
PF: Is there anything else you would like
to say?
J.N.: Yeah. It's the customers that really
treat you like garbage. They figure that
after waiting in line for half an hour they've
got the right to exercise their vocal chords
on this poor kid here doing a crappy job.
PF: In other words you don't like your job
but you don't think a union would really
improve things.
J.N.: Look, all I want to do is survive until
I get my B.A. then I can kiss this whole
thing, unions and all, goodbye.
J.N. is a student at UBC.
How does management feel about unions?
According to a Safeway assistant
manager, the situation is a tricky one. As an
assistant manager he is a member of the
union, but at the same time his job is to
supervise the workers and so he finds
himself in an awkward position.
For instance if a meat cutter isn't doing
his job properly Safeway expects L.A. to
criticize him. However, if the meat cutter is
unhappy with the criticism he can phone the
union office and complain. If the union
decides the meat cutter's complaint is valid
then L.A. can be subject to a fine for
harassing a union member.
Since 1972 Safeway has suffered three
strikes. These strikes cost the company
money and employees.
However, the administration offices were
kept open by a skeleton crew. Administrative employees not needed during
the strike, usually take their holidays or do
alternate work at wholesale outlets.
In contrast to Safeway which is completely unionized, less than 2% of Woodward's employees belong to a union. These
are the meat cutters and clerks who belong
to the Canadian Food and Allied Workers
Union. The furniture handlers belong to the
Retail Clerks Union.
Under the labor code of Canada everyone
has the right to form a union. To do this a
group of workers must apply in a body to the
Labor Relations Board for certification.
Even though most Woodward's workers
don't have a union to take their grievances
to, they do have something called the
Woodward's Advisory Council. The Council
was formed in 1942 in order that
management and staff can meet and
discuss problems and make recommendations that will affect either one or
both parties.
Each store has one council which meets
once a month during working hours. The
council consists of representatives from
each department who are elected by fellow
workers. The representatives then elect a
The meetings are held in private and after
they are over, the store manager arrives
and the president of the council then asks
him questions. In turn, the store manager
can also ask the council questions on behalf
of various department amanagers.
If a worker is having a problem with his
supervisor or isn't satisfied with working
conditions he can go to his representative
and it will be brought up at the meeting. It is
compulsory that the representative attend
every meeting.
When the meetings are over the store
managers send a report to the Manager of
Industrial Relations, Peter G. Richardson.
Richardson is in charge of administration
and negotiations of collective agreement for
union employees and contract of employment policies for the non-union workers.
On the Advisory Council, Richardson
commented, "I'm not saying the Advisory
Council is the complete answer to personnel
problems but it does maintain a reasonable
degree of industrial peace and harmony."
Are the Woodward's and Safeway em
ployees satisfied with their situations? Or
are they simply apathetic?
Unfortunately they're probably apathetic.
It must be frustrating for the few workers
(union or non-union) wo do care to have to
deal with this kind of attitude.
Apathy is not unique to the working world.
It is the contagion of the mid-seventies. It
flourishes right here on our own campus.
Unions were created by people who cared,
people who were unhappy with, their
situation and had the courage to do
something about it.
In eighteenth century England, the union
was the salvation of exploited factory and
mine workers. Today the idea of a trade
union, a workers' guild has completely lost
its meaning. What would the miner who was
blacklisted all over England for forming a
union think if he heard, "I don't care what
they do to me as long as I get all that

Walter Johnson sought out other workers
who wanted changes in industrial life. Some
of these workers wrote essays, while others
preferred to be interviewed. Almost all the
contributors are union members, many of
them well-paid, and all have jobs that are
repetitive, dull, and sometimes physically
They write about night-shift mail sorting,
work on the assembly line, mining, office
work, social work, and work with heavy
machines. They complain about bad
working conditions, lack of freedom, the
inhumanity of their supervisors — and the
tyranny, of Management — on which
everyone blames everything.
Working In Canada is an eye-opening
experience for those who are reading about
working conditions for the first time. The
problems are real. Workers in some cases
must undergo scheduled breaks as in kindergarten, even to go to the washroom. They
are even encouraged to act like children in
some ways such as mild on-the-job horseplay. They must work under a supervisor
at all times. Many must have a doctor's note
if absent for a day.
They may not talk to each other on the job.
No soft drinks or sandwiches are allowed
under any circumstances on the work site.
Physically dangerous jobs, like working in
the gaseous sand pits of a carbon mine, are
-truly horrifying. It is little wonder that
many workers would like to see some
But the "changes" Johnson himself
proposes in his final chapter are nebulous.
He would like to see "libertarian socialism"
as the leading industrial philosophy. Unfortunately, he does not provide an adequate
definition   of  libertarian   socialism.   One
example is cited: a woman gives up a
portion of her pay each month for a sick
worker. From this we might guess that
libertarian socialism is a form of close
brotherhood among workers, but nothing
more specific is mentioned.
(It is also evident that libertarian
socialism has taken hold of many of Johnson's friends. Enthusiasm is high and we
should be hearing from them soon.)
The problems of the worker are nothing
new, and neither are the changes Johnson
proposes. But he has made an effort. His
final chapter is well-researched and no
reader of socialist history would be able to
fault it. Yet it lessens the effectiveness of the
book, putting it under the category of more
socialist literature. It should have been
allowed to stand alone as an extremely good
documentary of Canadian workers.
But the overall result is effective. We are
being told by working people to think, and
we are not told politely. Working In Canada
should be read by students, management,
and labour alike. If the revolution comes, we
should at least know why.

From PF 3
Strikes were becoming increasingly common leading up to
the Winnipeg General Strike of
The differences between the
socialist policies of the One Big
Union, which figured in the Winnipeg General Strike, and the
people opposing them, continued
after the strike. 'There was a
questioning of the general strike
technique. The Trades and Labor
Congress saw the OBU as competition and wanted to get rid of
To bring this about, they attempted to gain control over the
regional councils and adopted a
constitutional amendment giving |
themselves the authority to take
them over.
The B.C. Federation of Labor
objected strongly. But the TLC's
opposition weakened the One Big
Union. In 1956, when the TLC
merged with the Canadian
Congress of Labor, the remaining
3,000 OBU members joined the new
Canadian Labor Congress.
The other group involved in the
new CLC, the Canadian Congress
of Labor, was formed in 1940,
largely on the initiative of another
central body, the All-Canadian
Congress of Labor.
The problems of the labor
movement increased with the
Depression in the 1930s. By 1933, an
estimated 32 per cent of the work
force was unemployed. But the
figure did not include young people
who had finished school but who
had never had a job and thus were
not included in the work force
statistics. There was no unemployment insurance and workers
had to rely on government relief.
Work camps were set up for
single men who were not eligible
for welfare assistance. They were
sent to isolated areas and provided
with some form of work, for which
they were paid 20 cents a day.
In the spring of 1935, 4,000 men
gathered in Vancouver, which,
because of its moderate climate,
was crowded with transients. The
protesters wanted 50 cents an hour
for their work and the abolition of
military control of the work
camps. They decided to take their
protest to Ottawa.
About 1,000 men boarded a
freight train on June 3, 1935.
Another 1,000 had joined them by
the time they reached Regina and
a 1,000 more were waiting at
But the RCMP were ordered to
stop them in Regina. Representatives of the federal government
met them there and suggested that
only a small delegation should go
while the rest waited in Regina. A
committee did go, but the meeting
with then Prime Minister R. B.
Bennett turned out to be futile.
Arrangements were made for the
march to continue.
Several groups of men set out in
trucks but they were immediately
arrested. The strikers then
arranged a meeting to be held on
July 1. The police moved to arrest
the strike leaders and the 'Regina
Riot' ensued. More than one
hundred people were injured and
83 strikers were arrested.
The Saskatchewan government
accused the federal .government of
causing the riot by interfering
when the provincial authorities
were convincing the men to leave.
Saskatchewan eventually
arranged to transport the
protesters back to Vancouver.
World War II helped ease the
unemployment situation. Since
that time, labor activities have
been relatively free from violence.
The National Day of Protest on
Oct. 14 was a peaceful event. Many
of the things that early labor
leaders struggled for have become
commonplace. But there are still
situations, such as the health
hazards to miners and asbestos
workers, which need to be

Playhouse's boat sinks
"Not since Dunkerque have so

by Tom Stoppard at the David Y.
H. Lui Theatre. Starring Robert
Clothier, Andrew Gilles and
Christopher Newton. Until Nov. 6.
So many men in fact, that the
boat is in danger of going under,
but not through any fault of its own.
The boat that playwright Tom
Stoppard built is fully equipped
and ready to sail the seas of
sparkling wit and satire, but with
the Playhouse Theatre Company at
the helm, it is in desperate need of
bailing out.
Dirty Linen and New-Found-land
were written in 1975 for the Almost
Free Theatre group in London, in
response to a request for plays with
any American connection. The two
one-act plays are relatively short,
and have as much to do with
America as either of them have
with each other.
Stoppard creates a general
situation — a committee room in
Parliament house with its
denizens; civil servants coping
with their assorted responsibilities, problems and guilty consciences. That is all Stoppard uses,
or needs for that matter, to embark
upon his dazzling dramatics.
The essence of Stoppard's
comedy springs from a brilliant
turn of phrase or masterful
manipulation of language.
In the tradition of Oscar Wilde, a
Stoppard piece should be played
lightly, but not superficially.
Stoppard's comedy has a fair
amount of bite. Proper tempo and
timing are of (he essence. These
are several considerations which a
director should keep in mind when
staging Stoppard. How does
director Susan Ferley stalk these
ethereal creatures? With leaden
The production begins with a few
minutes of Switched-on Bach; it is
not necessary but does no serious
harm. However, the spirit of the
production weakens from then on.
Ferley handles the script with as
much finesse as a track coach.
Actors race through their lines in
Olympic record time. Non
sequitors rush by, punch lines are '
cast aside and measured glances
are stop watched. Gone is that
intricate clockwork timing and
careful synchronization of actors
which lift a comedy from being a
hollow bore to heights of brilliance.
The characters are indistinguishable from one another,
and valiantly assumed accents
limp painfully behind.
The one actor who does deserve a
mention is Andrew Gillies, who
handles the remarkably difficult
American monologue quite well.
He doesn't quite hold the train
rhythm throughout the piece, but
he does an admirable job.
These two plays do not provide a
great deal of substance for a
company to make much of, but the
Playhouse's fatal error is not
knowing what to make of it.
Hamp war's victim
In every war there is an innocent: the coward, the vulnerable
private, the condemned court
martial victim. On the Western
Front in 1917 at the Battle of
Passchendale there existed such a
man. His name was Hamp.

Private Arthur Hamp is our

"As the brisk breezes of
November return to the pristine
countryside of Vancouver, the
residents of this northern community once again realize that
winter is drawing nigh. This is a
happy time for these people of the
northland. A time for festivals. A
time for them to steep themselves
in- the traditions of their
forefathers. Perhaps the most
widely celebrated tradition of
these simple folk is the ancient
leaf-kicking ritual. This is a
ceremony much akin to the fertility dance of the inhabitants of the
lush rain forests in the heart of the
tiny island kingdom, Pango

no tension to relieve.
In spite of an intermittent loss of
realism, the gist of the scene was
projected across to the audience.
The President of the court and his
colleagues succeeded in displaying
their pomposity when discussion of
lunch and the weather appeared to
supercede the importance of
dispensing justice.
In perpetual evasion of the
responsibility of his own defence,
Hamp comes no closer to accepting
his responsibility for death when
the inevitable verdict is sounded.
In sparing him yet another misery,
his comrades sedate him with
morphine. The rising repugnancy
of the affair becomes apparent
when Hamp is tied to a chair and
carried out unconscious to the
firing squad. The procedure
seemed to echo that Hamp was
needlessly killed — twice.

Defensively the Huskies have

UBC's defense has played at

The second is UBC's offensive
