Deficit rises without students
UBC is saddled with a $1.3
million deficit because 33 per cent
of students accepted into first year
failed to register.
Registrar's office spokesperson
Allan McMillan said 1386 successful applicants to first year did
not register, adding that up to 2000
students in total did not show up —
a 20 per cent jump from last year.
Dave Frank, student board of
governors representative, said the
university's administration is worried about how they will recover the
large deficit.
"Three per cent of one year's annual budget is all the contingency
UBC has," Frank said. "If $95,000
disappears, we break the Universities Act."
The provincial Universities Act
prohibits universities from running
a deficit.
"We haven't quite addressed the
deficit," said administration president George Pedersen,  "We may
Women's status stagnates
Institutional delays, financial
constraints and prejudice may bury
recommendations for changing women's status at UBC.
The faculty association executive
approved in principle Oct. 4 a
report submitted by their ad hoc
committee on the status of UBC's
female faculty members. It includes
12 recommendations and was presented to the association in July.
But many fear it may take even
longer before any action is taken.
"Because of financial constraints, this will get put aside,"
said Laurie Anderson, Alma Mater
Society women's centre member.
The report says hiring practices
have changed much slower than the
student population's composition.
"In every faculty the percentage of
female students is higher than the
percentage of female faculty members," says the report.
Women faculty comprise only 15
per cent, the report says, and this
figure has risen only three points in
the last decade. The report contains
two years research, using data gathered up until 1982.
A vast majority of the recommendations are dependent upon
president's office policy decisions.
Though UBC president George
Pedersen received the report in August, he said he has done nothing
yet, awaiting official faculty association approval. Pedersen said
after being sent the report he received a letter asking him to wait until
faculty approved the report.
Pedersen said ideally he wants to
see a higher percentage of women
faculty. But he added, "Any group
. . . has a point of view to express. I
would have to be satisfied that the
arguments are strong enough to justify action."
"I'm not sure how he would like
to be satisfied," said Sidney
Mindess, faculty association vice
president. "We would make sure
that he was satisfied."
Mindess said he wants more women on faculty, particularly in disciplines such as his own engineering

cut back on the budget allocation to
retrieve funds, but no decisions
have been made.
"Perhaps we don't need as many
instructors now that the numbers
have dropped, but we don't know
that yet," he added.
Pedersen refused to speculate on
the reason for the increased number
of students who failed to register.
He added UBC, the University of
Victoria and the Simon Fraser
University are conducting a joint
study on the matter.
"We don't know if all those
students didn't show up because of
high tuition, or because of the all
loans, no grants (student aid

Faculty approve women
Faculty association executive approved in principle a report from
their ad hoc committee on the status of women faculty at UBC.
Some of the report's recommendations for change:
• an ongoing presidential task force should be established to
study and recommend appropriate action on the status of women at
UBC, and address concerns that women's academic development
may be limited in some areas;
• data pertaining to promotion be reviewed to redress discrepen-
cies between men and women;
• measures be taken to recruit and retain female faculty;
• information regarding departures be gathered by each department and submitted to the president annually;
• careful consideration be given to the fact many women faculty
are not tenured in the event of lay-offs;
» career progress be monitored and salary inequities be removed;
• gender differences in pension pay-offs be removed;
» more women be appointed to senior adminstrative positions;
hiring, "firing and selection committees also include women; and the
president's office review this annually;
• a presidential committee on sexual harrassment develop procedures for confidential reporting, and recommend procedures for
appropriate disciplinary action if necessary.
The committee which spent two years researching the report was
comprised of three women and three men.
student council's open forum on
the subject tonight.
Hollis said UBC students voting
in favor of joining CFS can easily
withdraw after two years if they are
"It was me that set up our whole
prospective membership with CFS
in 1981 when 1 was AMS external
affairs coordinator," he said.
But he said only people who
regularly attend council meetings
will likely attend tonight's open
meting on whether council will support the CFS referendum in mid-
November. The vote will ask UBC
students to join and pay a membership fee of $7.50.
"I think people who want to see a
'Yes' vote will generally come
out," Hollis said. "Uninterested
council members won't be there."
AMS president Margaret Copping said she is unsure how council
will vote on the issue. The vote is
not binding, she added, because a
proper open council meeting requires two weeks notice. Only one
week's notice was given for
tonight's forum.
"We didn't even have time to get
up posters," she said.
Council voted last Wednesday to
organize this meeting at 6:30 p.m.
in SUB council chambers and take a
stand on joining CFS.
CFS invites ministers, leaders
The Canadian Federation of Students is organizing a speakers forum at
UBC Oct. 24 to debate education, science and technology.
CFS invited provincial universities minister Pat McGeer, federal science
minister Tom Siddon, Liberal leader John Turner and NDP MP Pauline
Jewett to speak, CFS spokesperson Donna Morgan said Tuesday.
Morgan said she hopes the invited speakers will at least send representatives if they are unable to attend.
The aim of the forum is to "highlight some of the problems in the education system and to get more involvement from students at large," she said.
The forum will occur in conjunction with a provincial Education Day of
Concern organized by Defend Education Services Coalition, a group of
public organizations and unions.
because the high school marks from
the government weren't released, or
bad publicity about the quality of
university education. We have to be
careful about raising tuition."
Vice-president finance Bruce
Gellatly said this year's 33 per cent
increase in tuition may have created
the high absency rate.
Gellatly said the $8 million raised
by increased tuition fees helped offset UBC's $1.3 million shortfall that
existed before the high absency rate
was known.
The rest of the shortfall was
covered by funds from UBC's
general purpose operating fund and
revenues from increased investments.
McGill mechanical engineering professors have received hundreds of
thousands of dollars from Canada's
Department of National Defence to
research fuel-air explosives, the McGill Daily revealed last week.
Daily reporters got a brief look at
the DND contract, which reads in
part "from the practical point of
view one is interested in the potential destruction that can be caused
by a fuel-air explosive device."
"This depends critically on the
size of the fuel-air cloud that is
within the detonability limits," the
contract says.
A 1978 book, Arsenal of Democracy, says, "The only way to understand the force of concussion (a
fuel-air explosion) brings to bear on
the human body is to picture a man
being hit by a baseball bat at full
length ... at every exposed portion
of his body simultaneously."
The McGill reporters said a secretary at the school's research office
showed them the $20,000 contract
between the defence department
and the researchers. They began copying the details. Fifteen minutes
later McGill research head Gordon Maclachlan took the contract
from them, saying, "I don't think
you should have this."
He did not confiscate the reporters' notes.
The reporters later asked one of
the professors, R. Knystautus,
about the contract. "I don't remember (it)," Knystautus said.
Knystautus and another professor, J.H.S. Lee, claimed the practical implications of their research
are in safety. They said knowledge
about fuel accidents is limited.
A graduate student in the professors' laboratory told the reporters
"the defence department and U.S.
air force paid for most of this laboratory. Without their support we
would not be able to afford it."
The McGill experiments take
place inside reinforced steel pipes
where a powerful detonation is
heard as a "ping." The graduate
student, who asked not to be identified, said one of the pipes, bought
by the defence department, costs
The contract which the Daily disclosed, dated April 1980, also noted
"field tests at Defense Research Establishment Suffield, Alberta can
be used to complement those on
fuel-oxygen explosives which will be
carried out at McGill." Page 2

Escorts curb assaults
OTTAWA (CP) — The rising
number of sexual assaults and incidents of sexual harassment on Canadian campuses has led many universities to offer women escort services and improved lighting.
Walk-home services are now offered at Carleton University in Ottawa and Wilfrid Laurier University
in Waterloo. And McMaster University in Hamilton and the University of Western Ontario in London
both offer drive-home services at
Residence students at Carleton

are willing to walk women around
the poorly lit campus. "The recent
attack of a woman at the athletic
centre was the straw that broke the
camel's back," said residence
dweller Dianne Selt.
"What we're stressing is that
common sense is the best preventive
measure," she said. "That's where
the walk-home service fits in."
At Wilfrid Laurier, students gather at a common meeting place and
walk home together. The scheme
has been operating since September.

Students oust apartheid
MONTREAL (CUP) — Students at McGill's school of agriculture gave
their students' council a strong mandate to look into "other measures of
censure against South Africa" in a high-turnout referendum Sept. 27.
A majority of students also voted to continue the school's boycotts of
Carling-O'Keefe, Rothmans, Seagram's and the Bank of Montreal.
One-third of the schools' 1000 students voted in the referendum. Two
hundred and sixty-two voted for the "other measures of censure," 66 voted
against, and 44 spoiled their ballots. One hundred and eight-five voted to
continue the existing boycotts, 157 against.
South African corporations have controlling shares in Carling-O'keefe
and Rothman's. Seagram's and the Bank of Montreal have large outstanding loans to the South African government.

Liquor ban follows housing death
SASKATOON (CUP) — The University of
Saskatchewan administration has stopped issuing liquor permits for campus events
following the death of an 18-year-old man at
a residence party.
No permits will be issued until liquor licensing policies are reviewed, said Roland Muir,
assistant to U of S president Leo Kristjanson.
"There is strong evidence there was liquor
involved in that tragic death." Muir said the
university may change its licensing requirements and tighten security.
Ian Wagner, U of S student council president, said the council will fight the suspension of liquor permits. "They can't do this
forever. I think this is just a quick reaction,"
he said.
The body of Shawn Reineke was found
Sept. 29 in a residence garage bin after being
dropped seven storeys down a garbage
disposal chute.
Reineke, a native of Hodgeville, Sask., was
found in the early morning following a Sept.
28 party and died in the university hospital
shortly before noon.
Saskatoon police said the body was
covered in a white foamy substance and that
they suspect foul play.
Police inspector Ed Grabowski said police
have questioned numerous people but have
made no arrests. "I'm sure somebody knows
something but we haven't talked to anyone
who does yet." Grabowski said charges
could range from criminal negligence to
Residence manager Neil Nickel said
Reineke did not likely fall into the garbage
chute. "These are standard garbage chutes,"
said Nickel. "We are amazed that someone
could in fact get in there — if that is the
case." He refused to elaborate.

Federal officials return hoax book
CALGARY (CUP)—University of
Calgary officials say public pressure
may have prompted the federal
government to return a library book
seized from university shelves last
"Was Ottawa responding to the
media storm?" asked Alan MacDonald, U of C library director.
"We were more surprised with the
book's return than its seizure."
Revenue Canada customs officers returned the book, The Hoax
of the Twentieth Century, Sept. 21.
No official explanation was given.
The RCMP seized the library
book, which argues that the
systematic slaughter of Jewish people by the Nazis during the Second
World War did not happen, on
Aug. 8, after it was banned for its
anti-Semitic and immoral content.
The U of C appealed to have the
book returned in the interest of "intellectual freedom", MacDonald
Assistant library director
Margaret Sinkey said the book
may have been returned because the
copies were purchased six months
before the June ban was implemented. She said they arrived in
January of this year.
Before its seizure, the book was
stored in the library's reserve
reading section. The book was not
in general circulation and could not
be removed from the library.
"There was a head-on between
two principles," MacDonald added. "There was a conflict between
the role of the university, where all
ideas are held up to scrutiny and the
desire of many Canadians to deal
with hate literature."
Library officials will place the
book in the library's reserve section
until the controversy is over, Sinkey
side visitors."
Reineke was neither a resident of the
university residence in which he was found
nor a U of S student.
U of S student Marge Cherry said the ban
on liquor permits is ironic because a licensed
residence party was held without incident the
night before Reineke died. Reineke attended
a private, non-licensed party, she added.
The UBC housing department banned
organized residence parties from Sunday to
Thursday this year. But housing did not cite
increased incidences of alcohol-related offences in UBC residences as the reason for
the restrictions.
Many texts

Tuesday. "And I couldn't say how

But he said he was sure the last
outstanding texts will be airlifted in
this week, a month after courses began.
"Stuff has been pouring in," he
said, adding North American universities innundate publishers with
requests for books at this time of
Hedgecock said many courses
were short of texts this year, particularly in the arts and the social
sciences. "Students found they
couldn't take a course with limited
enrolment like computer science, so
they enrolled in a language like
French or philosophy," he said.
The problem was worse than
usual, he said, but not by much. He
added the problem was alleviated
somewhat by students withdrawing
from courses they could not get
texts for.
Hedgecock added the bookstore
is not promising it can overcome
similar problems next year.
"There's just a huge number of
things involved," Hedgecock said.
When university began a number
of classes were entirely without
books due to late deliveries.
Students in Fine Arts 340 had no
texts because their professor did not
order the texts until Aug. 21, two
weeks before university began.
Holocaust attacked
Calgary student reps oppose women
CALGARY (CUP) — University
of Calgary students trying to organize a women's centre face "complete opposition" in their fight
against pornography and inadequate campus security.
"We were laughed at," said Jenny Irving-Halladay, an organizing
committee member. She said her
group is ignored by student council,
student services and faculty heads,
who all refused to give them space
or funding.
"The student union also recommended we call ourselves a club,"
she said. Clubs may receive some
office space and are eligible for a
small grant.
The organizing committee has
temporary office space in the social
welfare student lounge, and plans
to lobby for tighter campus security
and fight pornography on campus.
"It is useful to have a temporary
room to prove we are useful and
have viable issues to work on a continuing basis," said committee
member Anette Cerafitzky.
Deirdre Wall, student union ex
ecutive and women's committee
member, said the group is targetting
the engineering students' annual
Lady Godiva ride and pornography
at the university bookstore.
She says each year the engineers
parade a naked woman on a horse
through campus in mock imitation
of the famous Lady Godiva ride for
the suffragist movement at the turn
of the century.
"I want porn off campus," she
said. She points to a poster advertising a recent fraternity party on
campus depicting a naked woman
being chased by a man on horseback carrying a whip as another example of violence against women.
Although the group has met with
some cooperation from students,
committee member Pat Stanley said
she also gets comments such as
"What's the matter, you got a
Freudian problem here?"
Plans for a new women's centre
at one other campus have also been
delayed. The University of Saskatchewan student union, which shut
down its women's directorate last
October, has not yet decided how to
replace the services it eliminated.
The UBC women's centre, which
is funded by the Alma Mater Society, ran an unsuccessful campaign
two years ago to stopt the UBC
Bookstore from selling pornography. UBC engineers also
sponsore a Lady Godiva ride.

Raw deal
Women professors are getting a raw deal.
Big deal, right?
One does not have to personally view the new faculty association report on the status of women at UBC to know that. Students
and professors alike can easily see that most professors are men
and that virtually all powerful administrators are men. It is so obvious that most people at UBC take it cynically as a fact of life.
That attitude has to change.
Perhaps even the most cynical will be disturbed by some of the
facts the report has brought to light.
Forty-six per cent of students are women. Fifteen per cent of
professors are women. There are only three per cent more women
faculty than in 1972. Let's hear a cheer for women's liberation,
The majority of "non-professors," that is, lecturers, sessionals
and instructors, are women. If layoffs due to financial cutbacks
come, junior faculty will be cut first, and women will be hit hardest.
Wait, there's more. Male professors make more money — they
earn on average 17.4 per cent more than women professors.
Significantly fewer women have tenure — it is harder for women to
be promoted.
This faculty report is shocking, and the sad and scary part of the
saga is that this report may not be acted on. At a time when UBC
faces budget deficits, the boys at the top do not need cries for
equality. It costs money. And the boys at the top are resistant to
change — power is not smilingly relinquished.
But the people of UBC cannot let the administration ignore this
report. UBC president George Pedersen must start examining this
report, and acting to change the status of women at UBC. Budget
restraint is no excuse for institutionalized inequality.
The UBC administration has a moral duty to students and faculty. Students, women and men, are being shown archaic role
models every time they go to class, because these role models are
almost all male. They are subtly being taught that men have a more
important and active role in society, because they are the ones in
And female faculty are facing the worst injustices. They are being denied equal opportunities in a place which falsely claims to be
a symbol for society to look up to.
Instead UBC is an object of shame.

First year scientists a strange breed
Quite often, while wandering between classes, I meet up with people
I once knew.
They of course ask me what I am
doing (I suppose they hope its either
something dangerous or very
kinky). As a general, all-round,
good answer I say "First year
science," especially at the times
when I have no clue as to why I am
taking certain notes in class. They
sort of nod, say "Yeah," and build
up my hopes that someone here
could help me out of my confusion.
Then, of course, they blow me away
by asking "What's it like?" That is
about as bad as asking someone to
figure out the exact distortion of
space caused by a 75 kg. mass
travelling past a binary star at a
speed of light.
It is just not something you do in
your head.
Most first year science courses —
biology, physics, and chemistry —
require six hours of classes a week.
Math requires four hours and
English three. Not including time
for out of class studies, that comes
to a total of 25 hours a week of an
average of five hours a day.
I am sure most of you have
already done the calculations in
your head, but to get the whole picture you have to get them down on
paper. For every class hour includes
also an extra two hours outside for
preparation and study. With approximately 75 hours a week
necessary for classes, first year
science is one of the heaviest years
Rag tasteless . . . again
Who on earth writes the captions for the photographs in The Ubyssey?
After struggling valiantly in an attempt to make some sense of the cryptic
(read nonsensical) captions, I've finally been moved to write. It would generally seem to be some sort of challenge in your eyes to make the photo legends as indecipherable and uninformative as possible.
What specifically prompted me to write, though, was the caption to the
blood donation photo, which, though laudable in its motives, struck a
discordant note with a lack of sensitivity (and literacy) (Oct. 2 issue, p. 3.)
"B.C. is acutely short of blood with the long weekend coming up and
motorcycles" is the sentence to which I refer.
To use the recent tragic accidents involving motorcycles in such a crass
way only contributes to the sort of unthinking hysterical reaction that
motorcyclists combat all the time. It does nothing to help the victims, their
relatives and friends or the people who are trying to solve the problem in a
sensible and constructive way.
Why not use some other example of the need for blood, such as violent
attacks on police officers, and see what sort of reader reaction that provokes? I might also add that the sentence is grammatically awful, but that is
by no means unusual in The Ubyssey.

the case for all first year science

Only my English class has less
than 200 students in it. I am into my
third week and I still have yet to see
every face that is in my class. In all
probability I will not see some people who I know who are in my
classes all year. Also all the heat
that metabolizing tissue makes is incredible!
Another small quirk of having
such large scale gatherings is that
good seats start to get difficult to
acquire 10 minutes before most
classes — up to 20 minutes in some
cases. These large classes also exert
a sly pressure on the professors:
once the class starts packing up the
lecture is over.
Probably there are points in this
brief overview that hold for other
faculties and other years. Confusion, mass movements, and hard
work seem to be universal like
death, bureaucracy, and preppies.
The nice thing about all of this is
that learning science is not that different from acquiring a new
language and way of thinking. It
also gets easier from here on in!

Council should act on alcohol
Now that I have your attention,
consider the following. Does the
Alma Mater Society, which is supposedly concerned with student welfare, condone alcohol abuse?
Would the AMS consider the restrictions placed on the residences a
possible solution to a much deeper
problem that alcohol really is?
I do not believe that others
should impose arbitrary rules, but it
seems that someone other than the
student council saw a problem and
took action.
The students who live in residence have brought this situation
upon themselves. There may only
be a few guilty parties, but all have
to pay. Are they starting on the
road to alcoholism?
I challenge the student council to
reply. Arguments, such as drinking
is the student's responsibility, or
these parties are just a way to let off
steam is simply a cop-out.
You have been elected to make
decisions on problems that the stu
dent faces. Did no one tell you that
some may be unpleasant or not too
popular? If the student council actually cares, they can prove it by
changing their attitude. The problem here is alcohol use and should
be addressed as such.
This is not a personal attack on
an  individual's right  to  do what
they please. I simply want to bring
attention to the problems that alcohol can cause.
I do not have the answers, but I
know that these are the right questions the student council should be

"Pick me," pleaded Sarah Millin, "my best friend from the Gazette (the perfect paper) will be there." "I
should go because I want to learn about ads, for some unclear reason or other," purred aphrodisiac
Chris Wong. "Tell me what questions you'll ask at the screening so I can memorize them," begged
Charlie Fidelman unfruitfully. Monte Stewart intimidated others from running as conference delegates
via his newly perfected grey box mental telepathy. Victor Wong didn't say much but the glint in his
eyes revealed his inner desires. Zabeen Mawji and Lisa Hebert shook their heads in disbelief at the competition. Yaku and Kevin Hall stood back from the race, secure in the knowledge of lots of space at the
spring conference. Robert Beynon slyly kepths voting choices secret. Patti Flather puzzled agonizingly
over her choice for the ballot while poor Mark Teare was not yet enumerated. Wednesday, October 10,1984

This is the story, of a student paper, assembled in SUB 241K, that's
the vilest rag this side of Blanca, known as The Ubyssey, well one day
walked in three fresh young staffers, with eager beaver grins splashed
on their face, their one dream was to join the campus paper, and have
a beer or two, well those staffers walked straight in and felt at home,
because they knew they must have found the perfect place, to write
news, reviews or some of these swell features, for all their peers to
read, well now those three young dudes are seasoned veterans, who
learned layout, editing and photography, they's joined the editorial
collective, oh what a hearty bunch, now you can follow in their heavy
footsteps, by joining the rag you know and dearly love, it's a move I
think you won't regret, you'll find complete happiness at The
Ubyssey, The Ubyssey, that's the paper we know and love The
On another note (F sharp perhaps), all staffers should attend
today's screenings for the eight (count 'em, eight) candidates
running to represent The Ubyssey at the national Canadian
University Press conference. Come out and watch these Fearless
staffers sweat it out as they give their version of what an agent
of social change is. Screenings run from 12:30-2:30 p.m.

Welcome to Skid Row
More youth join

Reprinted from the Aquinian
By Canadian University Press
Andre Miro was two weeks away
from finishing high school in Moncton when he was offered a job in
Montreal in 1981. The 20-year-old
jumped at the opportunity.
By September he was out of work
in Montreal and headed west. "I
went out there because I knew people out there. I landed a job at Sun-
co (oil company in Alberta) almost
right away. When I was laid off, I
had another job within three days."
But the tide was turning. In 1983
the giant Allsand oil project collapsed, as did Alberta's economy.
Boom towns such as Fort Mc-
Murray, once a mecca for young
unemployed easterners, were not
prepared for the high unemployment.
"I went to the government to ask
for social assistance," Andre said.
"All they did was offer me a bus
ticket to Edmonton, with a referral
to a youth hostel."
"All they wanted was to get me
cause many young people have
simply stopped looking for work
and have become part of the hidden
numbers of unemployed.
Victims of the hard economic
times range from college graduates
to high school dropouts. Many are
forced to live at home, a mixed
blessing that raises serious family
problems for some. Others haunt
the streets and parks of Canadian
cities, scratching out a living. Some
turn to crime to support themselves.
Options for the young unemployed are scarce. In New Brunswick, the province's 17,000 youth
can receive a maximum of $108 a
month to eat, find shelter and
clothe themselves. The situation in
other provinces is similar.
There are more than 1,400 young
people under 25 drawing welfare in
New Brunswick, according to provincial government statistics. At the
Fredericton Emergency Shelter, Joe
Cormier sees the results of these statistics.
"Some of them are trying to live
on $108 a month," he says incredu-
out of town so they wouldn't have
another problem on their hands."
Most of the unemployed were
easterners, he said, and they all
talked of one thing — going home.
But home is the Atlantic, which
suffers the highest youth unemployment in the country, although British Columbia is closing the gap.
Atlantic youth have never had a
healthy job market. Most have to
choose between a job elsewhere or
staying at home and taking their
The MacDonald Royal Commission on the economy said in its findings the burden of the recession is
not borne equally by all Canadians.
The region with more than its share
of unemployment is the Atlantic,
and the age group most affected is
15 to 25 year olds.
But you don't have to tell that to
Statistics Canada reports there
are 495,000 unemployed youth in
Canada, but many peg that number
much higher. The Metro Toronto
Planning Council estimates there
are 750,000 unemployed people between the ages of 15 and 24, be-
lously. Cormier is a worker at the
shelter, which provides 30 beds and
lodging for people who have simply
run out of options. He notes many
of the shelter's clients are young.
Young faces are showing up in
breadlines and shelters in most Canadian cities these days, down and
out in a system that has forgotten
them. Like missions and shelters in
Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver,
the eight month old Fredericton
shelter is operated by church and
volunteer groups. Before it opened,
Cormier said many who now use
the shelter led skid row lives on
park benches and in doorways. This
upset many residents.
"Too many residents of this city
think our clients are the scum of the
earth," says Gordon Doherty, a
shelter volunteer.
A lack of confidence and self-respect comes from the feeling that
nobody could care less about them
says Cormier, and from living hand
to mouth. He says restoring self-respect is not easy, but this is what
shelter workers try to do.

Labor agitating
OTTAWA (CUP) — Faculty and
support staff at many Canadian
colleges and universities are engaged in bitter strikes, lockouts and
stalled negotiations.
A six-week support staff strike
at New Caledonia College in Prince
George, which started at the school
year's beginning, put a halt to
classes because faculty refused to
cross picket lines. More than 160
support staff walked out on the college 0.75 per cent wage increase offer. A new contract was passed by
staff this weekend, and staff are expected to resume work.
Only two weeks after strikes were
narrowly averted at York University
in Toronto and Carleton University
in Ottawa, 22 Ontario community
colleges are poised for strike action.
The 7,600 community college
teachers took a strike vote on Oct.
2, with Oct. 17 as the first day the
union could legally initiate job action.
The teachers' contract expired
Aug. 31 and they rejected an offer
from the Ontario government for
an across the board two per cent
wage increase. The teachers want to

the U of R wants to bargain

"The larger the group, the
stronger we are," says Ens. "If we

ing on Pedersen to implement
changes. Since the report was favorably received by their general
meeting and approved "in principle" by the executive, Mindess
He said the in-principle approval
connotes support for the thrust of
the report.
When asked how much the faculty association will push to see the
president's office make changes,
Mindess said he is prepared to wait
until the New Year (two months). If
there is no action by then the faculty will make formal representations to Pedersen, Mindess said.
Faculty committee chair Maureen
Murphy said she realizes in-principle endorsement is weaker than a
whole-hearted endorsement.
Murphy hopes Pedersen will respond as soon as possible to their
first recommendation outlining the
need for an ongoing presidential
task force studying the status of
women at UBC and recommending
appropriate action.
At the faculty association general
meeting there appeared to be concern about two areas, Murphy said.
The recommendation to remove
gender differences from pensions
was met with some disagreement
due to the prospect of readjusting
the whole pension plan.
Questions were clarified about
the recommendation a sexual harassment grievance committee be established, Murphy said.
The previous sexual harassment
committee working toward a university-wide committee appears to
have failed, June Lythgoe,
women's students office director,

Lapa-led 'Birds humble Huskies at UBC
Carey Lapa has suffered considerable pain in the last two years.
Last year, he suffered a serious
knee injury from which he was very
fortunate to recover. This year, he
has had to contend with something
bird Stadium. With the victory,
UBC moved into play-off contention for the first time this season.
Lapa was a prevalent force as an
inspired UBC defence constantly
harassed Saskatchewan quarterback,  Doug Siemens.  The fourth
'Birds' defensive co-ordinator,
Bob Laycoe praised his troops' efforts, adding that Lapa probably
played one of his best games in a
UBC uniform.
While Lappa was preventing
touchdowns, Andrew Murray was

However, last Saturday, Lapa

receiver from Ottawa had his finest
game as a T-Bird, catching three
touchdown passes. "It was sort of a
different thing," said Murray. "So
far ... I haven't caught any
touchdown passes. 1 guess they all
come in bunches," added Murray.
UBC trailed 7-1 after the first
quarter due to Husky quarterback
Siemens' six yard touchdown toss
to running back Joe Mahnic at
9:32. Quarterback Frank Cusati
plunged forward for a one yard
touchdown at 1:36 of the second
quarter to put UBC ahead to stay.
The 'Birds held a slim 15-8 half-
time lead but the Huskies slept
through the remainder of the contest.
UBC scored its other touchdown
on a fumble recovery in the end
zone. UBC's offensive lineman fell
on the ball at 11:06 of the fourth
quarter when Saskatchewan dropped it while trying to return a punt.
Murray tied Paul Pearson's
record for most touchdowns in a
single game while Tom Dixon
established a new UBC record for
the longest field goal. The second
year kicker connected from 46
yards out, surpassing Ken Munro's
record of 45 yards, set on Oct. 17,
1981 against Alberta.
"It was really nice to get the
record," said Dixon. "But the
nicest thing was the two points
(from the win) which we really
needed to get back in the play-off
race." UBC moved into a tie for
third with the Huskies.
The 25 point victory avenged a
28-5 loss to the Huskies in Saskatoon on Sept. 1 — a game in which
Lapa was nowhere to be seen. He
stayed home because of his weak
knee, which he injured at Hamilton
Tiger Cats training camp.
Prior to this season, Lapa never
imagined what it would be like to
lose two games in a row. "That's
never happened to me before," said
Lapa in reference to the team's
back-to-back losses to Saskatchewan and Calgary.
"This was the best game that we
played all year," said Lapa. "The
guys did some soul searching during
the last two weeks and we came out
really hard and it looks like it paid

Frank foils shooters
Mark Frank was not robbing a
train last Sunday but the masked
man still managed to steal a victory
away from the Thunderbird hockey
The Calgary netminder made
several stupendous saves as the
Dinosaurs beat the T-Birds 5-3 in
the final game of the Empress Cup
tournament at the Thunderbird
Winter Sports Center last Sunday.
Frank was instrumental in the
Dinos' domination of the 'Birds,
stopping 49 shots compared to a
combined total of only 23 for Brian
Bo wen and Carl Repp.
Calgary bolted out to a 3-0 first
period lead on goals by Ken Vinge,
Paul Geddes, and Dave Mackenzie.
Mike Coflin put the 'Birds on the
scoreboard 41 secods into the second period.
UBC outshot Calgary 21-8 in the
second   segment   but   Frank   was
unbeatable after Coflin's early tally.
Rick Gal beat Repp at 1:32 of the
third period, thereby destroying any
hopes of a UBC comeback. Ian
Hutchinson scored Calgary's final
goal of the game at 5:58 after
Holowaty had scored the second
UBC goal. Jay Soleway was the only 'Bird who made Frank look bad.
The defenceman took a pass from
Holowaty, dashed over the Calgary
blueline and whipped a slapshot
between the goaltender's legs at
Frank foiled Holowaty on several
occasions. The most notable save
occurred when Holowaty took a
pass in the slot and fired low to
Frank's glove side.
Calgary finished the tourney with
a 3-0 record while 'Birds wound up
at 1-2. The only other entry in the
competition, the University of
Regina Cougars finished with an 0-2
The tournament was a warm-up
to the Canada West regular season
which begins this weekend. The
Dinosaurs return here for games
Friday and Saturday.
CITR FM 102 (cable 100) will
broadcast Friday's game live beginning at 7:15 p.m. All home hockey

This season, the UBC men's
rowing program shows considerable promise to be extremely
competitive in all weights and
The heavyweight crew is potentially the strongest the university
has had in many years. The eight,
which includes three Canadian
Olympians and as many as five
champions from the 1984 Canadian
Championships will be attempting
to overcome the very strong competition from the Vancouver Rowing Club and Victoria.
Says coach Boris Klavora, "It is
important to keep our objectives
for this season in perspective. We
will be strong, but the UVic crew
has five Olympic athletes and three
Senior B team members. They will
be tough to beat."
Although the heavyweights have
competed against crews from
American universities, discussions
are presently underway with
University of Washington coach
Dick Erickson to re-introduce
regular competition with the formidable rowing crews from UW.
Under the coaching expertise of
No bubble trouble here
Joe: "Anybody's league
"Not very well." That's the way
a disappointed Joe Johnson
described his UBC Thunderbird
soccer team's play in Victoria.
The University of Victoria
defeated the 'Birds 2-1 with a very
strong defensive performance.
Johnson said his team played well
during the first 10 minutes and the
final 10 minutes of the contest.
"We just can't afford to squander
any more scoring chances,"
Johnson added.
Ken   Mulleny   scored   the   lone
UBC goal near the 70 minute mark.
UVic led 1-0 at the end of the first
half and jumped out to a 2-0 lead
early in the second frame.
Johnson discounted the importance of the game in terms of his
team's play-off chances. "It's not
just going to be a two team race
(between UVic and UBC)," noted
Johnson. "It's anybody's league."
The T-Birds get an immediate opportunity for revenge. The Vikings
visit UBC this Saturday in an afternoon rematch. Game time is 2:00
While several UBC teams packed
up shop after last year, the tennis
team has found a new dome. Tennis
Canada forked out approximately
$100,000 for the installation of a
new roof — similar to the one at
B.C. Place — to cover the campus
The UBC men's tennis team has
had a long tradition of being a fine
university sport as far back as the
early 1960s. The 1970s saw somewhat of a decline and one reason
could be the loss of a lot of players
to American colleges.
Since 1983 the men's tennis team
has changed from an unheard of
group of players to a vehicle where
players can train and compete. And
last year the tennis team started off
its building program in style.
In his first year as coach, Patricio
Gonzalez proved to be a valuable
acquisition to the team. Through
contracts and negotiations Gonzalez began by obtaining brand new
uniforms for the team.
"We should not only perform
well, we should look good, too!
This team represents UBC," says
coach Gonzalez, "and it should do
so with class." Gonzalez has been
trying to elevate the tennis team
from what in the past has been
more of a varsity club to a highly
competitive team of dedicated players. ("I would like to give structure
and support to the tennis team plus
competitive events.")
In 1983 Gonzalez organized team
trips to Victoria, Bellingham, Seattle and San Francisco, with the
team hosted two tournaments.
Varsity coaches nationwide may
worry that their programs risk decimation with each new swipe at athletic budgets, but Gonzalez isn't too
concerned yet. In 1983 the team received a $500.00 donation from the
B.C. Patron's Association and assistance from the men's athletic department.
ex-Brit Bob Downie, the men's
lightweight crew will be looking to
maintain its reputation as one
of the most powerful crews in
North America. However, this will
be a substantial challenge for both
coach and crew alike. Many of the
lightweight oarsmen have only
recently joined the crew, and
some have limited racing experience.
The junior varsity eight is
presently training with the
heavyweight crew. Although less
experienced, the jayvee crew should
improve dramatically over the
course of the season. Members of
the crew are intent on providing
strong competition to the crews
from UVic and the U.S. They are
also intent on displacing oarsmen
from the heavyweight crew and
securing a seat on the heavyweight
boat for themselves.
The men's novice program is off
to a booming start this year.
Coaches Dave Courier, Jeff
Allester and Bruce Hopkirk are
very encouraged by the considerable interest the university's
froshmen and novices have shown
in the sport of rowing. They say
that they have the ingredients for a
strong novice crew.
The first of a number of fall
regattas is to be held in Vancouver
over the coming weekend, October
13 and 14.
Saturday, athletes (men and
women) from UVic, VRC, Edmonton Rowing Club, Burnaby Lake
Aquatic Centre, Victoria City Rowing Club, Greenlake and Lake
Washington Rowing Club will race
in the VRC Invitational Regatta at
Burnaby Lake. This regatta will involve races over 3500 metre
distances for all categories from
singles skulling up to the prestigous
eights event.
Sunday, eights for both men and
women will race the five kilimetre
course at Indian Arm in the Deep
Cove Classic.
Final ends in tie
Nothing happened in the final
UBC's women's field hockey
team tied the University of Victoria
Vikettes 0-0 in the final game of the
second Canada West tournament
this season. As result, the T-Birds
failed to gain ground on the league
leading Vikettes, setting the stage
for what could be a dramatic season
finale here Oct. 20-21.
The T-Birds have alreay qualified
for the national championships as
the host team but they want to
finish first in the league.
The national finals will take place
at UBC Nov. !, 2 and 3.
