Array intment is 'arrogant'
A decision by student council
Wednesday to appoint students to
the UBC senate sets a dangerous
precedent, is arrogant and insults
the students at large, two council
members charged.
"You can appoint people to administrative posts, task forces and
committees, but you should never
appoint people to representative positions," said student board of governors member Chris Niwinski.
"I'm unhappy with this precedent."
Council appeared to base its decision upon the economics and efficiency of replacing by appointment the student senator-at-large
seat vacated by Mark Crawford rather than the democratic principles
involved in selecting a representative position.
The issue arose when Crawford
tendered his resignation past the
deadline for the Oct. 9 Alma Mater
Society vice president byelection.
Had he resigned before the deadline, a byelection for the senate seat
would have been held concurrently.
"We are looking at council selecting or appointing a person for
the at-large position because it's six
months into the senators' terms already; it costs $3,000 to run an election. If an election is held the person won't start serving for another
two months and will only have four
months left in their term," said nursing representative Jocelyn Bennett.
Council decided to follow the appointment procedure outlined in
the AMS Code and Bylaws (which
allows  a  selection  committee  to
screen   candidates   and   make   a

recommendation to council) despite
concerns raised by student board of
governors member Anthony Dickinson.
"When we consider the importance of the position, the cost of the
election is not the issue — the issue
is whether it is morally right for us
to decide," said Dickinson.
But external affairs coordinator
James Hollis said morality was not
an issue. "I appreciate the point
about the moral right, but there is
the issue of expediency and cost,"
he said. "The economic reality
should sway us into the grey area."
Added engineering representative
Lance Balcom: "Five, hundred
dollars per meeting is a lot of
money to pay to ensure the democratic process takes place."
Only Niwinski and arts representative Mike McKinley voted
against the decision, with Dickinson
abstaining. "It's a sad state of affairs when we come down to measuring democracy by the number of
dollars per vote," said McKinley.
"What council is saying is 'no' to
all democratic principles. All
they're interested in is the two extra
months of service, the minimal
costs, and the fact that they know
the potential appointees.
"It's arrogant, it's insulting to
a 'we know best' attitude that
makes a mockery of student elections."
Council also rejected a request to
postpone the Oct. 23 deadline for
closing of nominations. "If we extend the deadline another week, we
can have the undergraduate societies advertise the positions," said
Dave Frank, science undergraduate
society president.
But Bennett said if the deadline
was extended an appointment could
not be made at the Nov. 4 council
meeting and the senate seat would
be "lost" for November and December.
Student senator Doris Wong said
the vacancy has been known for
some time, but the delay in receiving Crawford's resignation caused
the problem. "I've been recruiting
people since September and have 12
names of people interested in the
position," Wong said.
"Three have already gone to senate and senate caucus meetings. It's
very important that people going into an interim position have a good
knowledge of it."
Wong said she was pleased council chose the selections committee
process for appointing the new senator,   because   "council   appoint-

The president of the engineering
undergraduate society faces criminal charges for helping place a 4,000
pound concrete block in the middle
of a major downtown intersection.
EUS president Lance Balcom and
second year engineering student Ivo
Kokan was charged with common
nuisance after a five foot engineering cairn was placed in the middle
of Pacific and Burrard intersection,
4 a.m. Oct. 9.
"1 absolutely regret having done
it," Balcom said Monday.
Balcom said the charges are "unfortunate," and are only "misdemeanors," although the criminal
code allows for up to two years in
jail if convicted.

Any further cuts to the physics
department, already at the "bare
bones" level, will only lead to
mediocrity, the department head
charged Monday.
"I think we should be excellent in
some areas and not mediocre in
all," Roy Nodwell said.
One of the most visible cuts is the
recent axing of 41 teaching assistant
positions in the department.
Nodwell said the department is just
managing, despite the TA cuts. In
addition it has cut colloquiums by
50 per cent and encourages use of
mail rather than phone calls, he

Voters get 'fingered'
Students living in UBC residences
will be denied the right to vote in a
proposed municipality for the
university endowment lands, a Vancouver lawyer said Monday.
Ray Cantillon, NDP candidate
for GVRD area director said, "The
student body as a historic class will
be denied a municipal vote."
Endowment lands residents met
Thursday to elect a five member
committee to investigate incorporating the area as a municipality
or village.
"It isn't an exercise to exclude the
students," Iva Mann, GVRD area
director said Monday. "There's no
way we could incorporate ihe campus land."
But student residence representatives were noncommital about the
proposed changes in the UEL.
Gary Roelofs, Acadia Camp
Tenants Association president, said
he   wondered   if   the   university
wanted student housing to be included in the municipality. "The
people I've talked to feel it's a non-
issue," said Roelofs. He added he
would find out whether other
students were concerned about the
residents' relationship to the proposed municipality.
Both Mann and UEL Ratepayers
Association president Charles
Bourne said UBC is run under its
own charter, and would not be#
part of the municipality.
Cantillon compared the
residents' proposal to the "Grade's
Finger" controversy over the
change in provincial electoral boundaries in human resources minister
Grace McCarthy's home riding.
"The student body in residence
at UBC has the potential to exercise
a municipal vote in (the endowment
lands) electoral area, to elect a
representative on the GVRD," he
Nodwell warned. The TAs were cut
as a last resort after the UBC administration called for a quick
retrenchment. All other department
expenditures were committed at

"I don't know how some survive
on that amount of money," he added.
For faculty, reduced numbers of
TAs mean more time must be spent
on labs and tutorials (work usually
performed by teaching assistants)
and less time on research.
In one physics course, offered to
first year engineering students, problem sets are no longer marked. Instead, copies of answers are posted
for students to do their own assessment.
Nodwell said students are forced
to take more responsibility for their

Forestry newsletter 'disgusting'
"1 certainly invited them to keep it (the newsletter)
out of my sight," he said.
Mahowich accused Gardner of coming down too
strongly instead of reaching for a compromise. "If
he'd asked us to tone it down, OK, but he just pulled
us in and said to stop it. He is making a mountain out
of a mole hill," she said.
"We don't put a gun to anybody's head and say
they should read it, there is a disclaimer on the front
page, and besides it's nothing compared to what the
engineers put out," Mahowich said.
Gardner said the newsletter did not represent the
image that most students and faculty members wanted. "There are some traditions which have been
outlived and should be done away with. The argument that other faculties do it is no justification;
this type of thing serves no purpose," he said.
The foresty undergraduate society is at loggerheads with the dean of the faculty. At issue is the
contents of the society's newsletter, The Greensheet.
Forestry dean Joseph Gardner said that a copy of
the newsletter reached his office last week. "I called
the editors in and told them what I thought about it;
what I saw was disgusting," Gardner said in an interview Monday.
According to Greensheet editor Tina Mahowich,
Gardner said he didn't want to see another copy of
the newsletter in MacMillan building (home of the
offices of forestry faculty members). She interpreted
this statement to be a request to desist publication of
the sheet.

Students seek solutions
The only way to find a solution to the cutbacks facing universities is to take a holistic
approach, according to the Students for an
Accessible Education group and to that end
the SAE is hosting a forum Friday to assess
the problems.
Formed only three weeks ago, SAE is a
student group independent of the Alma Mater Society. "Although <it is currently funded
by the arts undergraduate society, SAE has
representatives from several faculties, including engineering, science and agriculture,"
SAE member Bill Tieleman said Monday.
Friday's forum at noon in the SUB audi
torium will feature five guest speakers, including teaching assistants union president
Jonathan Katz and political science professor
Phillip Resnick. UBC administration president Doug Kenny and awards and financial
aid director Byron Hendor had invitations
hand delivered to them Oct. 20 but have not
yet responded. A representative from the
newly-formed Canadian Federation of Students will also be present.
"The idea of the forum is to have people
who are knowledgeable about different fields
of education present to give their assessment
of the problem and to provide information
and discuss solutions with students," Tieleman said.
"The forum will be just that — not a demonstration or a rally.''
Although the SAE is independent from the
AMS, Tieleman said the student group has
no animosity toward student council. An earlier AMS cutbacks committee, the student accessibility committee, had resigned en masse
Sept. 23 because of council interference and
lack of support. The SAE, while carrying on
some of the aims of the accessibility committee, does not have the same membership as
the earlier committee.

EDMONTON (CUP) — Tuition
fees will have to rise 30 per cent next
year to reach the level where the
University of Alberta board of governors wants them.
In a letter written to premier
Peter Lougheed, board chair John
Schlosser attacked the government
for not approving a 15 per cent U of
A tuition increase for this fall.
"University students at one time
paid approximately 15 per cent of
(operating) costs and with your
minister's refusal to increase fees
this percentage will now be eight per
cent of operating costs," Schlosser
"If you do not increase the fees
and do not allow a 30 per cent fee
(increase) next year, the amounts
will become meaningless," he
A 30 per cent increase would
push tuition fees to about $790
from their current $606 and total
student fees (including health, athletic and student union fees) to $873
from $689 per year.
Schlosser also suggests in the letter that tuition fees should make up
a constant 10 per cent of university
Nowhere does he mention that
the reason for the university's fee
increase request last spring was the
Lougheed government's inadequate
funding of the university.
But university president Myer
Horowitz said repeatedly that last
year's tuition increase request was a
last ditch attempt to make up for
the government's inadequate university funding.
Free press 'honest'
A free press is essential to honest
reporting, an Irish journalist,
author and former United Nations
ambassador said Saturday.
A government-controlled press
endangers truth and freedom, Conor Cruise O'Brien told 450 people in
Woodward lecture hall 2. Another
150 people viewed the Vancouver
Institute lecture, entitled The Press
and the World, on closed-circuit
video in an overflow hall.
Authoritarian or totalitarian
governments often control the press
at the expense of accurate and factual reporting, charged O'Brien.
"Truth and despotism cannot exist
alongside each other," he said.
"We in the western world have a
considerably better press than
elsewhere," he said, but added it
still leaves much to be desired and
could be improved.
The western press owns "a far-
reaching news collecting
apparatus," and therefore it is
reliable. "Money allows for
reliability. Poor countries cannot
afford reliability."
There are countries which can afford reliability but do not want it,
he added, citing Saudi Arabia as an
"Communist and Third World
rulers do not want reliability," he
said, because "the rulers of these
countries are not necessarily chosen
by the people." The public in these
countries does not have access to
factual and truthful reporting, but
is subjected to government censorship, propaganda, and interpretation of events, he added. "In which
countries that have a government
press have the people been consulted about it?"
Although the western press is free
from government control, the expression 'free press' is misleading
because newspapers are business
enterprises subject to takeover and
monopolization, he said.
"We also like to call our press
competitive. That too is an exaggeration. Our competitive press,
and this is true throughout the
western world, is becoming less
O'Brien said the press must remain free of government influence
and control. "People should not try
to run things they know nothing
about, and governments who try to
run the press know nothing of what
the free press is or can be."
The government of a democratic
country may have a duty to raise the
qualitative level of the popular
press, he said but warned "the
danger is that what the government
would be likely to do is make the
press more amiable to the government."
Time for some HEUSprtalrty
"Home economics students invented Hallowe'en in an attempt to glorify
and deify pumpkins and their ilk," a deranged lunatic said Monday.
It seems home economics week is indeed glorifying things round and
orange. Wednesday and Thursday they will be attempting to exploit the
pumpkin and sell these vegetables to unsuspecting students so they can
donate the money to the Terry Fox cancer fund.
Friday they will be mutilating these misbegotten orange spheroids in a
semi-pagan ritual called a "pumpking carving contest." They will also be
holding another ceremony known as a Hallowe'en dance featuring Montego Shine in the SUB ballroom.
The pumpkins were unavailable for comment at press time.
Orange you glad you're in HEUS?
"The thrust of the SAE is to take a holistic
approach towards cutbacks and accessibility
and not concentrate on a single issue," Tieleman said. "Although we are concerned
about tuition fees, we are also looking at
housing, housing costs, jobs, job wages, participation rate of high school students and
teaching assistant cuts «— all those things
standing in the way of accessibility."

Council selects eight reps
There are eight new faces on several presidential committees after
student council passed a rash of appointments at its meeting Wednesday.
Jane Newton, Nadine McDonnell

to the president's committee on
food services. Both Newton and
Balcom said they were concerned

the appointees were not present and
two did not submit written resumes.

Although the position is open to
any UBC student, council decided
not to advertise the position.
♦     *     *
Council deferred a decision Wednesday to confer committee status
upon the first year students group,
pending debate on whether club status would be more appropriate.
Spokesperson Greg Rapanos said
the group needs funds to organize
social events and official recognition to get a representative on council.
"We are here to plead for committee status," Rapanos said.
"Without it we will fizzle, but with
it we can make a significant contribution to the Alma Mater Society."
He said the group's future plans
include organizing car pooling, athletic functions, "frosh" dances
(open to minors), and recruiting
from high schools.
Engineering representative Balcom cautioned against a c uick decision, warning that there was a "potential for abuse and clique forming
with close-knit high school groups
taking over control."
There was also concern about this
year's first years organizing the
1982 frosh retreat, with council
members saying next year's
"frosh" would have no opportunity to participate in decision making.
Council adopted a lengthy list of
AMS goals and objectives as a report after several members objected
to adopting it as "the definitive list
of goals."
The majority of the goals centre
around improving communication
with students and increasing participation within the AMS, with many
actions listed to carry out the goals.
Student board of governors
member Anthony Dickinson, one
of the list's main organizers, said
the goals and objectives list was not
intended to be the final word on the
"This list is just a start," he said.
"It's a process which should start
and continue each year."
Graduate student representative
Rob Cameron was one council
member who was against adopting
the list. "I don't believe this should
be The List of goals and objectives," he said. "It should be publicized and further input from students at large sought."

Davies said an election had been
held to fill the position of grad

Only slightly more than 20 people
voted in the election Davies added.

The election was well advertised
in The Ubyssey and with signs
posted around the graduate student
centre Davies said. Page 4

A mystery
The administration at UBC
moves in mysterious ways. Sometimes this is confusing and it is frequently frustrating.
Administration president Doug
Kenny revealed plans for a committee at the September board of governors meeting to investigate where
budget cuts would be made. This
committee has yet to make a public
report about their activities and this
is confusing and frustrating. It
seems logical that when their decisions are made, they will be substantial as the university is scrambling to cover an $8 million shortfall.
However, while the committee
has been meeting (in what room,
where, with whom, deciding what,
has never been made at all clear)
cuts have been proposed, and serious cuts have been made.
Last week students learned that
this year the university deprived
them of 206 graduate student
teaching assistantships. Did this
have anything to do with the mysterious financial retrenchments
committee? Or has the administration already dug the grave for quality education and the committee
will just fill in the dirt?
If the committee played no role in
this deed, what is its purpose and
role? This question falls into an
even more shadowy light when we
consider that there is no student
representation on the committee.
When student senator Doris
Wong asked administration vice
president Michael Shaw why students were absent from the committee, his reply was curt. "Write
me a letter and justify why there
should be student representation."
Apparently the administration of
this university is neither concerned
about students' education priorities, nor do they want students to
have access to information about
those decisions.
What can be the point of a retrenchment committee that does
not monitor budget cuts and their
priorities, has no student representation on decisions directly concerning us and is silent when cuts are
And the cuts have only just begun. In a memo from science dean
Cyril Finnegan to all science department heads, representatives from
that faculty will be going before
that committee Nov. 16 to plead
their case.
The University Act of B.C. upon
which this institution was founded
states that students should be represented on all decision making
bodies. But when it comes to
something as politically sensitive
and far reaching as a committee on
the financial future of UBC, its administrators shut them out.
Yes indeed, the university moves
in strange ways.

Preinsperger's views complement Reagan's
As the former administrator for a
daily supplemental feeding program
for 230,000 Haitian preschool and
school children between 1977 and
1980, with active involvement in
community development projects in
both Haiti and Tunisia, I would like
to reply to Mr. Preinsperger's naive
two-part article.
There are no studies to my
knowledge which conclusively
demonstrate a casual link between
food-aid imported into the Third
World and an increase in birth rates
in these countries. If Mr.
Preinsperger's has extra time on his
hands, I suggest that he read Bonnie
Mass' book Population Target: The
Political Economics of Population
Control in Latin America
(Charters Publishing Co., Brampton: 1976) and Harold Brookfield's
Interdependent Development
(Methuen Co., London: 1975) for
starters. Then he might enjoy
reading Food First: Beyond the
Myth of Scarcity by Francis Lappe
and J. Collins (Houghton-Mifflin,
Boston: 1977), Food Aid and the
Developing World by Christopher
Stevens (Billing & Sons Ltd., London: 1979) and S. George's How
the Other Half Dies (Penguin, Har-
mondswirth: 1976).
I think that these readings should
assist in dismantling his Malthusian
assumptions and misconceptions
about the dynamics of development
in the Third World. High birth rates
and rapid population growth are
not the problems, only symptoms
of the major problem: poverty.
Conquering poverty can only be
accomplished through structural
modifications to the existing
economic, social, and political institutions both within the dependent (Third World) nations and between these countries and the
dominating nations (otherwise
labelled the Industralized World
which encompasses both 'Communist' and 'Free-Democratic' nations).
Mr. Preinsperger appears to
think that the food-aid sent to the
Third World is of a sufficient
nature and of a quality to affect the
well-being of a majority of third
world inhabitants. As a matter of
fact, there is serious doubt as to the
positive effects of these programs.
First, there is evidence to suggest
that the food distributed under
these programs does not reach the
intended beneficiaries. For instance, food rations distributed to
mothers at Mother-Child Clinics intended for lactating mothers and
newborn infants may be shared
with other family members.
There is also cause for concern
that children receiving food rations
at preschool and school lunch programs are then denied food at
home. As a result, the nutrition and
health effectiveness of these supplemental feeding programs are
Second, there is also evidence to
support the argument that the importation of food commodities into
the Third World has a negative effect on local-consumption market
Stopping food aid no real solution
farming in these countries, and the
development process.
Attempting to implement compulsory birth control programs in
the Third World is not an easy task.
First, the logistics involved are incredible — I doubt that Mr.
Preinsperger has ever visited a
Third World country and appreciated even the geographical
problems which must be surmounted in order to make the program accessible to the population.
Second, people cannot be forced
to utilize birth control methods.
While several studies have claimed
success in achieving a decrease in
birthrates due to the implementation of a birth control program
within their experimental area,
closer examination of their
methodologies show their conclusions to be suspect. These studies
have failed to recognize the effect
of factors other than the birth control program in lowering the
regional birth rate. Some of these
studies failed to recognize that the
regional birth rates were declining
prior to the establishment of the
birth control program; that the
birth rate within the control popula
tion was also declining over the
study period, or that the researchers
equated acceptance of birth control
methods and implements with actual utilization.
While I agree with the argument
to cease food-aid programs in their
current form, due largely to their
negative effects on the development
process in the Third World and the
lack of empirical evidence to
demonstrate their nutrition and
health effectiveness, I cannot support Preinsperger's argument to tie
food-aid to compulsory birth control programs. Until the masses see
and feel real changes in their standard of living, I doubt that there
will be a significant decline in birth
rates and net population growth
rates in the Third World.
I might suggest that Mr.
Preinsperger should apply for a
senior administrative position in the
State Department. His views coincide nicely with those expressed by
Haig and Reagan.

Like many students who have
been regular readers of Kurt
Preinsperger's letters, I have
wondered how his opinions, on
such a wide variety of topics, go
together to make up the mystery
that is Kurt. So, to help myself, and
maybe some others, understand his
world-view, I have constructed the
following scenario:

recognizes that he is in a position of
power there, having money/food;
and we know from his most recent
letter that he is willing to exercise
this power, and even feels morally
obliged to, for the good of other
people, as long as it doesn't cost
him too much.
So. There is a hungry woman
there (lots of 'em, actually, "but we
only need one for our purposes).
Now, I should recap Kurt's views
on women here, for those of you
who aren't aware. Kurt feels that
women are mercenary creatures,
who relate to men only to their own
advantage. He also feels that
women have a responsibility to
relieve men of their sexual tension.
Obviously, this is a perfect situation. Kurt and the woman have
reciprical commodities, and the exchange occurs satisfactorily.
Now, Kurt has not bothered to
ask about birth control, and is not,
himself, prepared; it is the woman's
responsibility, after all. And it's a
good bet that if the woman does not
have money enough, or access to,
food, then she doesn't have birth
control either. If she becomes pregnant, Kurt feels an obligation to cut
her off, as she is contributing to the
overpopulation which Kurt
perceives to be the cause of poverty.
If her situation does not improve,
both she and the baby will probably
die, but then, that's the population
problem eased a little, isn't it?
Anyway, what better can such a
mercenary creature expect?
Of course, as compassionate beings, we can hope that she has
already been sterilized by her
government, or at least that if she
gets an abortion, she will be sterilized then.
In any case, things look pretty
good. Kurt has invested his tourist
dollars wisely. The woman has
earned some food. And Kurt goes
happily home, no longer a virgin,
his carnal requirements temporarily
satisfied. But, as a whole person,
Kurt is thoroughly satisfied,
because he has behaved according
to his principles, and they have

The magnificent five would be chosen to carry on the magic and learn wisdom from other
sorcerers in the land at the time of the great festival. The young apprentices Muriel Draaisma,
Brian Jones and Mark Leiren-Young were excited about the possibility of travelling to the
frozen land on the great winged bird. Wtse old Nancy Campbell had decided to remain on the
coast and weave her magic on the northern shore with Eric Eggertson. Kevin McGee had
seen the frozen vastness of the east and shivered at the thought of it. Craig Brooks, Arnold
Hedatrom and Scott McDonald were willing to brave whatever tests they had to endure to
partake of the long hours of ceremony and drink. Glen Sanford realized how he would have to
forego the sandy beaches and seaweed cakes of his home during the great festival to travel

University education in war zone
"This ain 't no party, this ain 't no
disco, this ain't no fooling around"
— Talking Heads.
Post-secondary education is
entering a wartime period. The
opening shots are being fired; the
casualties will be students, teaching
assistants, campus workers and
faculty members.
If you have not yet realized what
is going on, consider the following
• The federal government,
which provides more than half of
the funding for post-secondary
education, wants to chop $1.5
billion in transfer payments to the
• A committee of the Association of Universities and Colleges of
Canada, which represent university
administrations, wants to see
students pay tuition fees equal to up
to 25 per cent of university
operating costs. With UBC fees currently pegged at 10 per cent of
costs, this would see fees rise to
about $1,770 from $710 for senior
arts students, to $2,230 from $892
for engineering students and to
$2,500 from $1,000 for graduate
students, for example.
• Simon Fraser University
students have just been hit with a
tuition fee increase of at least 22.7
per cent, possibly as much as 39.1
per cent.
• B.C. colleges have been told
by the education ministry to indicate where their budgets could be
cut if their funding for the next
academic year fails to meet inflation.
• The Social Credit government
has told the Universities Council of
B.C. that "certain programs" may
be eliminated in order that other
programs be expanded to meet "the
evolving needs of society" — as
defined by the government. In other
words, arts, sciences, and
humanities face the scrap heap.
Engineering students soon face
the likely prospect of a significantly
shorter program, despite their opposition to such plans.
Compressing a four-year program into three short years means a
decreased quality education and
still less emphasis on courses that
explain the interaction of engineering technology and the society it
• Foreign students may be
charged additional "differential"
tuition fees in an attempt to
discourage their attendance at B.C.
universities. A resolution to be
debated by Social Credit party
delegates next month calls for such
fees to be implemented here.
Already   Ontario,   Quebec   and
Alberta impose differential fees.
• UBC, under increasing financial stress, has eliminated 206
teaching assistantship positions,
amounting to about 21.7 per cent of
all the TAs employed here last year.
This action deprives graduate
students of what is often their sole
source of financing at university,
and therefore harms graduate programs.
• Other cutbacks at UBC, caused by an unexpectedly large faculty
wage settlement and continuing
funding shortfalls at the hands of
the provincial government, have
resulted in larger classes, fewer
discussion groups and labs, failure
to replace outdated and broken
equipment, inability to fill vacant
faculty positions and numerous
other inadequacies.
In addition to this academic horror story must be mentioned the incredibly high tost of housing in
Vancouver, assuming it can be
found, a lack of good summer jobs
(wages for government student
summer jobs haven't risen appreciably in four years) or part-time
jobs, rapidly increasing tuition fees
over the past five years, abysmal
student aid, and an ever rising
general cost of living.
To be blunt, a lot of students
aren't going to be able to make it
back to school in the next couple of
Despite the fact that this appears
to be the government's strategy —
to make universities the preserve of
the elite once again — in the long
run il: is a self-destructive policy.
An example: someone said to me
recently that with a large portion of
the forest industry out of work due
to slumping lumber markets, the
public doesn't really want to hear
about hard times at the universities.
I replied that the current forest industry difficulties only emphasize
the need to strengthen, not weaken,
post-secondary education.
Until B.C. develops an economy
that is diversified, one that doesn't
grind to a halt every time lumber of
fish or mineral markets are down,
B.C. will constantly be victimized
by the vagaries of the international
market. And obviously, in order to
build an economy that is dynamic,
that does more than simply rely on
the export of unprocessed natural
resources, we need highly skilled,
educated people in every sector of
Yet at the time when the post-
secondary educational institutes
should be strengthened so we can
break free of this crippling
dependency, government policy is
to slash education and research and
development funding. The government is playing a fool's game with
the public as the biggest loser.
In the meantime we face a simple
choice: accept the dismantling of
our post-secondary education
system, and with it our future progress, or work together in a broad-
based effort to restore the priority
of education in this province.
At UBC some students are now
beginning to organize for the long
campaign needed to save our educational system. Students for an Accessible Education (SAE) is an independent group that believes an
accessible education is a necessity in
our society.
On Friday, Oct. 30, at noon in
the SUB auditorium, SAE is
holding a public forum on accessibility, featuring guest speakers
and a question and answer session.
We ask all concerned faculty, staff
and students to attend the forum
and help begin the campaign.
Perspectives is a column of opinion, wit, wisdom and words open to
any member of the university community. Bill Tieleman in his illustrious past was a member of The
Ubyssey staff, and even became the
news editor in 1978-79. Tieleman also worked as the national bureau
chief for Canadian University Press
and is currently a graduate student
in political science.

Women catch western title again
The UBC women's field hockey
team won the Canada West Universities title for the second year in
a row on Sunday at UBC with a 1-0
victory over the University of Victoria.
In an exciting final a large crowd
watched the two evenly matched
teams play it out at midfield. The
only goal was scored by UBC's
Terri Drain 24 minutes into the first
half. Drain, the overall top scorer in
the Canada West league, beat UVic
goalie Kelly Rimmer just inside the
left post on a penalty corner shot.
UBC coach Gail Wilson said of
the win: "Our team not only played
intelligent hockey, but played very
well as a team. Our strategy was to
close-mark their players through
the midfield.
"We also had to beat them to the
ball and get rid of it quickly before
we could get tackled. It was nothing
fancy, just simple sound principles
of hockey strategy."
The tight marking paid off as
Victoria's strong centre half and
centre forward were kept under
tight control throughout the game
by UBC's Wendy Westermark and
Kathy Thom.
UBC had several scoring opportunities. One penalty corner shot hit
the post and deflected up over the
goal and Rimmer, who only allow
ed two goals in the tournament,
played well in goal for Victoria.
UBC goaltender Allison Palmer,
who did not allow a goal all weekend, said, "UVic didn't get any
good shots on goal because our defence played so well. I only had one
good shot to contend with."
For the first year a conference all-
star team was selected. UBC's
Drain, Anne Crofts and Jean
Mustard were among those named
to the tournament.
UBC went into the tournament
3.5 points behind Victoria and came
out on top of Canada West league
by 0.5 points. UBC's win should
change last week's national rankings which had Victoria ranked
number one and UBC numl>er four.
Both UBC and Victoria will represent the Canada West in the national championships to be held at
UBC Nov. 5-8, 1981. The two
teams representing Ontario-
Quebec, and the two representing
the Atlantic region have yet to be
Wilson said of the upcoming
championships that "all the games
should be extremely difficult, especially those against UVic and the
Ontario teams." She added that
most of UBC's preparation will be
in practising the basics.
In her view "the team that is fundamentally sound with regard to
skill will go a long way in the national championships."
If UBC plays as they did on Sunday Wilson says they will have a
good chance of winning. She also
said that "Sunday's win has given
us a tremendous confidence in our
own ability." UBC won the nationals in Toronto last year against
Ontario's York University.
In preparation for the nationals,
UBC plays the Doves, a strong Vancouver league team on Saturday,
and SFU in a rescheduled regular
league game on Sunday.
UBC football beats Bisons
The UBC football team overcame an early deficit and less than
ideal weather conditions to post a
15-13 victory over the University of
Manitoba Bisons Saturday in
Western Intercollegiate Football
league play in Winnipeg.
The win gives the 'Birds a 6-1
record and clinches top spot in the
WIFL, while the Bisons drop to 2-4,
UBC is four points ahead of the
University of Alberta, who has a
game in hand.
According to defensive coach
Bob Laycoe, the most satisfying
aspect of Saturday's win was the
'Birds poise under adverse conditions.
"The team showed a lot of
character, with the bad weather and
being down in the fourth quarter,"
he said.
UBC had a strong, second half,
getting its offense going after a slow
first half and containing the Bisons
defensively. Manitoba had most of
its 309 yards offense in the first half
while most of the 'Birds 177 yards
came in the second-half.
Snow, high winds and a fired up
Manitoba squad fighting to keep
their playoff hopes alive, gave UBC
trouble early. The 'Birds did not get
on the scoreboard until Ken Munro
kicked a 44 yard single in the third
But early in the fourth quarter
runningback Glen Steele broke
loose for a five yard major and a
Munro convert made it 11-8 Bisons.
Three minutes later quarterback
Jay Gard hit slotback Mike
Washburn on a 22-yard pass and
run for the winning touchdown. A
Munro conversion made the score
15-11 UBC.
Manitoba got singles on two
missed field goals to close out the
The 'Birds normally potent
rushing game had only 91 yards
against Manitoba with most of
these yards coming on second-half
drives. Steele had 50 yards on 20
carries with fullback Peter Leclaire
carrying six times for 28 yards.
UBC's passing game came up
with clutch receptions in key situations. Gard completed seven of thirteen passes while Greg Clarke was
zero for two in a brief third quarter
UBC's final regular season
match-up is against the University
of Calgary Friday night, Oct. 30 at
Thunderbird Stadium, where the

keep the momentum going into the

Late loss stumps soccer team
For the second straight year, a
late season loss has dampened the
UBC men's soccer team's chances
of finishing on top of the Canada
West soccer league.
The Thunderbirds travelled to
Edmonton last Friday only to be
beaten 4-1 by the University of
Alberta. This loss, coupled with
two wins by the University of Vic
toria, dropped UBC into third place
in the league. Before the weekend
started, UBC was tied for first place
with Alberta.
UBC had a strong first half and
lead 1-0 on a header by Randy
Couts. Couts headed the ball over
the Alberta keeper off a cross for
Pierre Welbedagt.
But in the second half Alberta
scored four goals to put the game
Rugby gets lethargic start
The UBC men's rugby team is off
to its slowest start in years.
With a 15-3 loss to the Meralomas on Saturday, the 'Birds are
now sporting a 1-3 record in Vancouver Rugby Union play.
UBC coach Donn Spence is not
happy with the play of his team, in
particular his front row play. He
said the front row was not giving
the backs enough possession. He
added UBC only had the ball ap
proximately 35 per cent of the time.
Spence said the front line should

away. UBC coach Joe Johnson said
it "was the worst half of soccer I
have ever seen a UBC team play."
UBC slopped playing as a team and
were just individuals, he added.
The conditions in Edmonton also
left something to be desired,
Johnson said. The temperature was
near freezing and there was a
20-mile an hour wind, which was
with UBC in the disastrous second
Johnson said the first Alberta
goal, an extremely long 40 yard
shot, took the sting out of UBC.
Just four minutes after that, poor
marking enabled Alberta to score
the winning goal off of a throw-in.
Alberta will be in Victoria on Friday, Oct. 30 and will visit UBC for
the last game of the season Saturday, Oct. 31.
