Array ERPES HYPE
The Mass Media's Epidemic
By ARNOLD
Herpes does most damage to the brain.
Its symptoms are paranoia confusion and
an urge to rush to the nearest health clinic. It
affects mainly the middle and upper classes.
Herpes of the brain is spread by magnetic
tape, newsprint, and radio waves — the tools
of the media.
"There is an epidemic," says a University
of Victoria counselling psychologist, "an
epidemic of the press."
The press created the North American
herpes syndrome and the mass media has used graphic and exaggerated journalism to attract readers. Magazines from Time to the
San Francisco-based Mother Jones have used
herpes for cover stories.
Time magazines's
August cover story,
Today's Scarlet Letter
— Herpes, had a
noticeable effect on the
number of enquiries
about the virus at B.C.
health clinics. The
Time article exposed
the most horrifying
Herpes cases to be
found. The result — an
alarmed and uninformed public.
At Vancouver's VD
clinic, Dr. Hugh Jones
says if the clinic sees 20
people a day, two will
come in with false
herpes alarms.
"The   publicity   is
certainly alarming people," says Jones. "We
see about  80 cases a
month or about four a
day that have Herpes."
The UBC Herpes clinic also had increased
numbers of enquiries, especially after the
Time article, according to herpes researcher
Paul Levindusky.
"The general impression we pick up from
the media is that there are some really serious
consequences and that is not exactly true.
Certainly there is an annoyance. People indeed may be sick the first time they contact
herpes. Fifty per cent will have a 10 to 14 day
period when they are not feeling well.
"There is another 50 per cent out ther who
will never have any symptoms at all? said
Levindusky on a CITR radio interview
recently.
"If you understand herpes to be a disease
of living, just as you catch colds or catch any
of the childhood diseases, then it is not the
particulrily new disease of the '80s that is being touted in some media presentations."
There is some truth in Time's report, says
Levindusky. But he adds 90 per cent won't
have the severe physical and psychological effects reported.
"This wasn't pointed out in the Time article. It left the impression that everyone is suf-
HEDSTROM
fering from deep psychological scars and
have to go to sensitivity training sessions to
help them through it."
But partial and selective information is only one way the media exploits its readers. The
Time article and others play on what most
people consider to be an intimate aspect of
their lives — their sex life.
The media exploits people's fears and attitudes concerning sex. With herpes, the most
susceptible victims of media exploitation are
the upper and middle classes in North
America.
"I might venture to say that those in the
working class might not be so concerned to
present themselves because the effect it has
on their lives is not high on their priority
lists," Levindusky says.
According to the Herpes Resource Centre
in Palo Alto, California, the middle and upper classes are used to having a great deal of
control over their lives and herpes to them
means a loss of that freedom.
In many third world countries herpes is
much more wide spread. Levindusky says in
warmer climates and crowded conditions
most people will have herpes by the age of 30.
But in the West, the middle classes don't
live in those conditions so the virus spreads
slower. Blood tests of elderly show 80 per
cent will have herpes anti-bodies indicating
they have contacted the disease.
"All of us can a least expect to get one type
of herpes," Levindusky says.
"Someh,Q$, people have taKen notions
related to sexually transmitted diseases, like
syphillis and gonoreha, and said if that is not
treated things are just going to get worse.
Herpes doesn't do that," says Levindusky.
Herpes, as much as it
is a physical and
psychological affliction, is an attack on
society's sexual mores
which have changed
dramatically since the
1960s.
The Time article concluded by stating, "But
perhaps not so unhappily, it (herpes) may be
a prime mover in helping to bring to a close
an era of mindless promiscuity."
For those who do
have the virus, at present the only alternative is to continue
living — as one does
with a cold.
As for preventative
media medicine: Rest
in bed, read plenty of
sources, and take the
media with a grain of
salt.
Virus not new or uncommon
Two-two-eight -seven-five-six-five.
"UBC Herpes Clinic."
"Hello. This is The Ubyssey newspaper calling. I'm doing a
story on the effect of media on people's ideas about herpes ..."
"You should talk to Paul Levindusky one of the researchers in
the clinic."
Later:
"From our point of view, we weren't upset about The Ubyssey
fake story. But we are as knowledgeable as anyone about herpes.
We look at it (the article, Ubyssey Nov. 16) and say that's real
funny because we have up to date information.
"You should read the four page handout we've prepared summarizing the disease before you do your story . . ."
Herpes is neither new nor uncommon. The disease's name was
coined over 25 centuries ago by Hippocrates and today, in North
America, blood tests show that four out of five people have been
infected with herpes simplex.
The classic herpes symptoms are an outbreak of blisters around
the mouth, vagina, penis or anus, one or two weeks after exposure to the virus.
The blisters erupt and enter a wet-ulcer stage. This is followed
over the next several days by drying and scabbing. Some people
do not have symptoms at all while others become quite ill.
It is when the symptoms are present the disease may be
transmitted, usually, though not exclusively by direct contact.
There are two types of herpes simplex. Herpes symplex I is oral
herpes and is transmitted by kissing and mouth contact. Herpes
simplex II, genital herpes, is almost always transmitted by sexual
contact.
The virus is not transmitted through the air, on toilet seats, or
in swimming pools.
Once contacted the virus may cause recurrent outbreaks with
some people since the virus remains in the body.
But regardless of how one contacts the virus, aside from
discomfort and confusion associated with the disease, the risks to
well-being are not insurmountable.
Research about herpes is continuing at clinics like the referral-
only clinic at UBC, and many new "anti-viral" agents look promising. Other information about the virus is available.

CUP cretin cooks cute book
By TOM HAWTHORN
Canadian University Press
I'm a culinary cretin. I burn
scrambled eggs. I scald Campbell's
soups. I put pots of water on the
wrong burner. I do make a decent
ice cube.
I have tried, mind you, slaving
hours over messy bowls, eyebrows
ghostly white from flour, nose itchy
red from spices, but it has always
been to no avail. A rice pudding
special came out hard and black. A-
simple gravy, made with beef
bouillon cubes, emerged with a
strong squid-like odor.
Food 101
By Cathy Smith
McGraw Hill,
$7.95
154 pages
I came to detest kitchens. The joy
of cooking was obviously a public
relations gimmick. I would gallop
to no gourmet.
But all this may soon be history.
There's a new course available for
the likes of me. It's Food 101, anew
cookbook for the student with a
dietary dilemma.
Concordia University graduate
Cathy Smith pestered friends, foe
and fowl for more than a year to
gather 122 time-tested recipes. The
result is a greatest hits compilation of the best in student fare,
from the bleak (buck-and-a-bit
hash) to the chic (quiche lorraine,
the "real man's" cheese pie).
Food 101 is Smith's effort to talk
down panicky kitchen klutzes like
she used to do in her university
days. She takes nothing for
granted. She defines words like
"parbroil," "baste" and "saute"
(which I had long taken for
punishments from the French
revolution). Each recipe comes with
step-by-step instructions, complete
with important cooking tips, serving ideas, and an idiot's list of needed utensils.
One is expected to test recipes
when reviewing a cookbook. I
didn't. That would have been too
cruel, both for the author and for
my dinner guests. Instead I have
nibbled and scarfed my full share of
a smattering of these recipes and
have found them yummy.
The stick-to-your-ribs beef stew
did just that. Vic's chili had me
hollerin' and a-snortin.' The author
herself whipped up a mess of glazed
lamb chops. Oink. Nothing,
nothing at all, was hard and black
and squid-like.
There are other dee-lish recipes in
Food 101, like soups and sandwiches, veggies, casseroles and
salads. Now all I gotta do is find someone to cook 'em up. (Honest, I
do dishes!)

Easter
mourning
at
Moncton
By KEN BURKE
of the Dalhousie Gazette
for
Canadian University Press
April 11, 1982 was an unusual Easter Sunday for about 200 Universite de Moncton
students.
On a normal Easter Sunday, they wouldn't
have been sleeping inside the main administration building. They also wouldn't
have been awakened at 4 a.m. by Moncton
city police in full riot gear, herded into the
streets, handcuffed, arrested, and taken to
the city jail in a transit bus.
It was the seventh day of the Universite de
Moncton student occupation.
Located in downtown Moncton, New
Brunswick, Universite de Moncton is a small
francophone university in a bilingual province otherwise endowed with English speaking universities. Dominating the campus is
the large brown-brick Taillon building, the
location of the U de M administration offices. Once a convent, the five storey structure is more than 90 years old.
Also in the Taillon building is the office of
U de M's recteur (dean), Gilberte Finn, a
highly respected businessperson from Moncton and well known in boardrooms across the
province.
Finn had repeatedly been accused by the
student federation of failing to support
students on any governmental issue. A statement issued by La Federation des Etudiants
de l'Universite de Moncton (FEUM) after the
occupation declared that he "considers all
forms of negotiation on a unilateral level."
Rachel Roy, a member of the occupation's
negotiating committee said "He's a
businessman — probably a very good one.
But who wants a businessman as dean?"
Discontent had been growing within the U
de M student community long before April
1982. Most students at U de M are Acadian,
hailing from the economically depressed
francophone communities of New
Brunswick. In some places, unemployment
runs as high as 30 per cent. According to
FEUM, the average yearly income in Acadian
is $15,000, lagging far behind other parts of
Canada.
U de M students are especially dependent
on aid and bursaries to attend university.
FEUM estimates 75 per cent of the student
population relies on loans and bursaries.
Finn is on record stating he perfers increases in tuition fees to government under-
funding.
For many students, last April seemed like
the right time to act. It had been rumoured
since September of 1981 that tuition fees,
then $950, could increase by as much as 25
per cent.
By April students had already taken one
major action against the proposed fee increase — one which ironically would serve to
further the communication breakdown between the administration and students.
At a general meeting of the FEUM, 500
students decided to remove the current student representative on the board of governors from his position. The reason they gave
was he "was in favour of tuition increased
and often took individual decisions without
any consultation with the students."
However, since replacing him would require
an election, students were left without a
representative on the board.
The board meeting called for April 3 finally pushed the students into action. Since the
April board meeting traditionally dealt with
tuition fees, the FEUM executive approached
the board's president to ask permission to
present a paper on tuition fees. The president
said the meeting was "closed" and "students
already had a member on the board" (the
revoked position). To protest the lack of input, FEUM organized a rally to be held during the meeting.
Fewer than 60 students gathered outside
Taillon building that afternoon. The board
members arrived at the building right on
schedule, passed through the group of
students, and entered the building.
After a 15 minute discussion, the board of
governors left quietly through a back exit to
meet on the twentieth floor of a Moncton office building. Four hours passed before the
students uncovered the new location of the
meeting. Three students were sent downtown
to make one last effort at presenting their
viewpoint to the board. Upon their arrival
they found an empty meeting room, save for
the president of the board and Finn. They
would only say no final decision had been
made on the tuition scale.
"We were pretty discouraged," recalls
Steve Alexander, one of the student envoys.
A meeting was called the next day to decide
on a course of action. FEUM was going to
have to put the pressure on. On half day
notice 250 students showed up. Their mood
was one of resignation.
"We had to occupy the building," says
Alexander. "It was a way to get our point
across."
Access that evening to the Taillon building
was gained through the Kacho, a student-
operated nightclub in the basement. The
Kacho had its own entrance and was
separated from the rest of the building by one
locked door.
"All you had to do was unscrew the door
and you had the whole building to
yourselves," says Roy.
At 11 p.m. about 100 students began shutting up the building, barring and locking all
windows and doors. There was one confrontation that first night.
"Security (guards) managed to get in the
night we occupied and they advised the
students to leave. The students then advised
the security people to leave. They did," says
Alexander.
Committees were struck to facilitate the
occupation. They included: security, board
and lodging, negotiations, education and
mobilization, media, health and finances.
On Monday morning (April 5) only
students with identification and cafeteria
staff were allowed in the Taillon building by
the occupying students. The student
residence cafeteria in the basement was kept
open for the duration of the occupation.
"We didn't want to do anything wrong to
students," says Roy.
The occupation was faced with the problem of feeding and lodging 250-300 occupants of the building. Money from donations went towards three meals a day plus
something set aside for midnight snacks.
"We probably ate better than the residence
people," says Brenda Cote, FEUM president.
With the roittion system about 600
students were involved in the occupation out
of 2,500 students enrolled at the university.
General meetings held twice daily to govern
the students' action had attendance nearing
1,000.
Moral support and financial contributions
began coming in almost immediately. Moncton labour unions, the Dalhousie University
Student Union, the Maritime Fisheries Union
and the Canadian Federation of Students are
only a few of the groups that issued
statements of encouragement. Professors
from the Moncton Faculty Union also joined
in, becoming mediators for the students.
Then came the first arrest.
During the first two days of the occupation, barricades had been set up in the city
streets running through the campus. According to Roy, the barricades were never seen
as a means of sealing off the campus or stopping classes, but rather a means of publicizing and drawing attention to the ongoing
struggle. The barricade caused monumental
traffic snarls and "upset quite a few people,"
admits Roy. There was never any attempt

made to stop people from walking across or
to the university.
The barricade was broken on the Tuesday
by Moncton city police. They arrested and
charged one megaphone-carrying student for
"inciting to riot."
"The student at the barricades was using
the megaphone telling the students to be
quiet, be calm, sit down and respect the
police. Then they arrested him," says Cote.
In addition to their demands for a freeze
on tuition fees, the students immediately
demanded that charges be dropped against
the arrested student. The freeze on tuition
was a negotiable demand, according to Roy.
"We had to start somewhere (in
negotiating)." But the negotiating committee
found their efforts stifled by an "uncompromising attitude" on the part of the administration.
On Monday the occupation leaders allowed the chief of univesity security into the
building to satisfy himself the building was
not being vandalized. While being given a
tour of the building the security chief also
noted flaws in the students hastily planned
security arrangements. The same day security
guards slipped into the building and reclaimed the security office.
"The office was important because it contained the transmitting equipment that
dispatched security all over campus. By
listening to it we could tell what they were doing and where they were," says Alexander.
Students were placed in various
surveillance positions near the security office
to wait for something to happen. After
becoming confident the communications
post was safe, security guards began gradually leaving the office to fulfill their duties
elsewhere on campus.
"We waited until all the security guards
but one had left. Then 30 students stormed
into the small office and 'advised the guard
to leave'. He locked himself in an office and
got out through a window, terrified," Alexander says. "No threats were involved."
Then the administration got silly.
"The chief of campus police called on
Wednesday morning to say we had a bomb
that was going to explode at 10 a.m." says
Roy.
The Taillon occupants, although realizing
they'd be aware of any such devices brought
into the building, decided to prepare for the
worst.
"We sat around and waited for it to explode, joking about we'd do after it exploded
— who'd leave our possessions to and, and
so on," says Roy. "It was a farce."
"We wanted to make it clear we weren't
doing this to avoid work," says Alexander.
"It wasn't just students out for a lark."
On Saturday, 15 students decided to start a
hunger strike to increase pressure on the administration to negotiate faithfully.
On April 11, Easter Sunday, the students
had planned a small service in the Taillon
chapel and were going to hand out
chocolates. Early in the morning the 250
students who remained overnight were asleep

Repression fuels songs of Chile 3
By DONNA SANFORD
Osvaldo Torres spoke of a bird
who built a nest in a treetop while
ignoring the disease at the tree's
roots. He related this image to the
present situation in Chile, where the
native people are trying to exist in a
country plagued by a military
regime. Torres sang- of their struggles, his impassioned voice and
strained face mirroring the severity
of their plight.
Torres, a Chilean folksinger,
sang to a small but appreciative audience in Buchanan Wednesday,
discussing the background to his
songs and answering questions
through his translator, who accompanied him on acoustic guitar.
One of his songs dealt with a
young boy from northern Chile, an
isolated region inhabited by South
American natives — Torres'
homeland. This area, Torres explained, had not felt the hand of
repression or the corruption of free
enterprise until its strategic potential was recognized. Taking advantage of the area's proximity to
Argentina, Peru and Bolivia, the
military regime extended its control
to this region.
Torres believes that by singing
about the lives of the native
Chileans, he is making a statement
against the regime. Although there
is extensive censorship against this
type of art, he says the cultural
movement against the Chilean
regime is protected by its popularity
with the masses.
With a smile, he held up an instrument resembling the Spanish
mandolin and explained that the ar
madillo that donated its outer shell
for the back of the instrument had
made a contribution to revolutionary art.
Osvaldo Torres plays again
tonight at John Oliver Secondary
School at 7:30, where he will perform a wider range of his music.

PANGO PANGO (UNS) — Shaved
mauve blorgs invaded this tiny
island monarchdom Thursday, in a
failed coup attempt. The knife-
wielding blorgs could be heard from
down the beach imitating pigeons,
but not a single coo was uttered.
Red-faced and dejected, the
mauve blorgs impaled themselves
on their respective phlegm rulers,
crying, "Give us pigeonry or give
us death!" There were no survivors.
Hairy puce blorgs celebrated
through the night, emerging from
Cottage   Printers   only  after   yet
another issue of the Daily Blah was
produced. Recently deceased editor
Irving Fetish was resurrected to say
a few words at a beachside
ceremony.
"We have not yet begun to fart,"
Fetish mumbled, slightly confused
at having been roused from eternal

Other blorgs, still anticipating the
revolution, began decapitating and

arctic birds. "Leave no tern unston-

Student protesters "evacuated" by armed forces in surprise raid
From page 3
— in classes, administration offices, and
spare corners, but mainly in the third floor
chapel which could seat 450 people.
"About four o'clock in the morning
somebody started hollering, 'The police are
coming! The police are coming! And sure
enough they were," says Alexander.
About 75 Moncton city police, RCMP,
and university security guards in full riot gear
descended on the Taillon building.
Everyone who participated in the occupation had been told what to do if the police arrived — be calm, wait for instructions before
leaving, sit down on the floor and so on —
but nothing quite prepared them for seeing
the police advance in tight formation, riot
helmets on and long billy clubs at the ready.
"Some people were freaking out," says
Roy, who was on the fifth floor when the
"evacuation" began.
In the chapel the police chief got on a
bullhorn and stood at the entrance. "He said
anyone who wanted to leave willingly could
do so and just walk out — no arrests, no jail,
no criminal record," recalls Alexander. "It
was meant to scare the students. Unfortunately, a number of them believed it.
"They gave a time limit of five minutes
before they were moving in, and while people
were still walking out, they moved in," he
says.
On the fifth floor Roy was awakened by
people  running   around   looking   for  two
Radio-Canada reporters staying in the
building. Still sleepy, she went to find Cote in
a nearby office.
As Cote left the office, a group of police
officers caught up with her.
"There she is! Grab that girl!" they yelled.
Instead of arresting Cote, the police
isolated her in a room and tried to convince
her to order the students to leave. She refused. Outside she could hear the English police
baiting the students as they herded them into
the early morning darkness.
"The police were really bad," she says.
"They tried to provoke violence — you
wouldn't believe the comments. One Acadian
student was talking to another student and a
cop hollered 'You fuckin' French frog. You
shut your mouth.'
"They were going to arrest me for obstructing justice, but after they held me for a long
time, someone said, 'Did anyone ask her if
she'd leave on her own free will?" Two cops
had this big argument over whether they did
or not, but they hadn't. They asked me if I
would leave and I said yes. So I left."
Roy was one of the first students out of the
building that morning. "They kept pushing
people out. After awhile there was a big
crowd in front of the building. Some people
were completely hysterical, but most people
didn't know what to do," says Roy.
"Two people started singing 'Solidarity
Forever'. They got arrested for singing too
loud.
"Those that were arrested were brought
outside, frisked and put in handcuffs. Then
they brought them back into the building.
They just wanted the others to see them and
be scared."
Eventually "a big line of cops" started
pushing the crowd down the street. "They
were walking slowly, but steadily towards
us," Roy says. "They arrested a few people
for walking too slowly, talking too much, or
whatever — just to intimidate others."
Twenty-seven people were arrested, making a total of 28 arrests during the occupation.
When Alexander returned to the campus
after being booked at the Moncton police station he attempted to meet with several other
leaders of the occupation, but security guards
arrived on the scene and broke it up. A new
'informal'" rule had been put in place —
groups of more than five people were not
allowed to congregate on campus. The campus 'martial law' was in effect until the end
of the 81-82 academic year. A psychology
class was denied permission to gather in front
of a building for a class picture.
Padlocks were put on the Kacho nightclub
and the student run co-op store in the Taillon
building. FEUM lost $15,000 in perishable
goods padlocked in the store.
Instead of the rumoured 25 per cent increase in tuition fees, only a 12.5 per cent increase was levied by the administration.
Across the province tuition increases were
lower than had been anticipated. Those facing trials and a criminal record felt they pulled off a victory.
In June some students began receiving
short, terse statements from the university in
the mail informing them of their "non-
readmittance" to the university. The letters
singled out the occupation as the reason for
expulsion.
In all, 17 students were denied re-
admittance. They included the entire FEUM
executive. All but two appealed the decision
before a U de M superior committee of ad-
misisons.
Four were offered readmission if they
agreed to never hold a position on a campus
organization and also never attend student
meetings or other activities. Two could come
back provided they "respect university rules
and not participate in any legal or illegal
demonstrations." Two students were readmitted without any conditions.
Of the six students who were offered re-
admittance with conditions attached, only
three accepted the university's terms.
For Roy, the occupation meant an expulsion two years into her nursing degree, and
unemployment in Halifax.
"I think people who were expelled are
proud they were involved," she says.
"You're fighting for a cause. I think we wish
it hadn't changed our lives that much. But we
don't regret fighting for our cause. We'll
never regret that."

Quiche eaters get egged on
By VICTOR WONG
Everyone should have heard of
Real Men Don't Eat Quiche. This
little paperback has become an
American bestseller, as well as a
popular 1980's catchphrase.
Unfortunately, it's not really
deserving of review, for two
reasons: one, it's really a novelty
item rather than a true book; two,
it's too "American" and not really
suitable for our Canadian culture.
But the book is a handy
guidebook for identifying the Real
Men and the quiche eaters in our
society.
For example, it's obvious Pierre
Trudeau is a quiche eater. In fact,
every Liberal in Ottawa is a quiche
eater, except for Iona Campagnolo,
who's a Real Man.
The NDP Opposition is chock-
full of Real Men.
Joe Clark used to eat quiche, but
he's now working on becoming a
Real Man by election-time.
And of course Ed Schreyer never
touches the stuff.
Of the provincial premiers, Peter
Lougheed and William Davis are
obviously Real Men.
And, just as obviously, Rene
Levesque is a quiche eater, who
prefers his laced with Rothman's
Special Milds.
Bill Bennett is a Real Man. (You
can only find egg on his face —
never quiche.)
Bill Vander Zalm is also a Real
Man, who's more than a little miffed at the quiche-eating members of
the BCTF.
Peter Hyndman is a quiche eater
who got caught.
Dave Barrett likes to think he's a
Real Man, but it's obvious he
sneaks some quiche occasionally.
So much for the politicians. Now
how about the other famous Canadians?
Barbara Amiel is a Real Man. In
fact, everyone who works on
Maclean's magazine is a Real Man,
except for Allan Fotheringham,
who sometimes eats quiche with
Jean Chretien.
Barbara Frum and Knowlton
Nash are quiche eaters.
Pierre Berton isn't.
Gordon Sinclair only eats quiche
when it's the cheapest dish on the
menu.
All of the players in the NHL are
Real Men, except for Wayne Gretzky. (Real men never advertise Mr.
Big candy bars.)
All the UBC Thunderbirds (football) are Real Men.
The Thunderbird basketball
players must have sneaked in some
quiche during their road games.
-..-.■    -g     £,,..
All of the fraternities have Real
Men for members.
Same goes for the engineers,
although some of the rowdier ones
thrive on quiche. (Real Men, after
all, never pull their stunts when no
is looking.)

Hockey closes-out 1982
By HARRY HERTSCHEG
Dave King's University of
Saskatchewan Huskies visit UBC
for a pair of games this weekend
against the UBC Thunderbirds in
Canada West collegiate hockey action.
King is currently involved with
three hockey teams that are each
seeking major championships in the
next 14 months.
Besides being the head coach of
the defending Canada West champion Huskies, he is also the head
coach of Canada's defending
world-champion junior team and
vice-president of Canada's 1984
Olympic squad.
This year the Huskies are striving
for their third straight league title
and third straight appearance in the
national university finals.
Although their first-ever Canadian championship has eluded them
the past two seasons, their chances
look good this year as they are currently ranked third in the country
and are tied for first with Alberta
Golden Bears at S wins, 3 losses
apiece in Canada West.

says. "We've got about 13 or 14
players back. But it will be very
tough to get out of our conference
this year. Alberta is much improved, Calgary has always given us problems and UBC seems to play very
well against us, especially in our
rink."
If the 2-6 Birds want to stay alive
in the play-off picture,'they will
have to earn at least a split this
weekend. A Husky sweep would
severely dim the light on what could
(SPORTS)
become a dark and gloomy existence for UBC in the depths of the
cellar. UBC trails the 4-4 Calgary
Dinosaurs, who play Alberta this
weekend, by four points.
This year's 'Birds are in some
ways similar to Vancouver
Canucks. Both teams are not laced
with talent and only hard work and
solid team play will get either of
them anywhere.
"The players know they have to
work as a team and not as a bunch
of individuals," said UBC coach
Jack Moores.
"We'll have to play a very close-
checking game with Saskatchewan.
They have very fast forwards and
they constantly have a man on the
puck and keep forcing you to try
and make a mistake. We have to
put some pressure on them and not
allow them to free-wheel."
The 'Birds also have some injury
problems. Right winger Graham
Kerr is out for weeks with a
dislocated shoulder. Centre Jeff
Garrison has a knee injury and will
be away for another three weeks.
A cracked rib should keep
defender Drew Hunt out of the
lineup for awhile. Also not playing
this weekend will be centre Kevin
Argue who has a cast on his arm
because of a broken wrist.
Defender Rick Amann's charlie
horse and swollen knee makes him a
doubtful starter, but defender Mike
Reid's swollen ankle should be healed in time for tonight's game.
Game time is 8 p.m. today and
Saturday at the Thunderbird arena.
This is UBC's last home game until
January.

Other than hockey (see story this

UBC sports this weekend.
The women's basketball play in

in Hayward. Since the UBC sports
department doesn't know
geography   (Halifax   is   in   New

All comedy, no menace blunts play
By SHAFFIN SHARIFF
The term "comedy of menace" is
frequently applied to Harold
Pinter's plays. Critic Irving Waddle
borrowed the term from playwright
David Campton and tagged it to
Pinter's The Birthday Party in
1961. It is important to keep the
term in mind when watching the
current City Stage production of
Pinter's The Caretaker because
what one gets is all comedy — and
almost no menace.
The Caretaker
By Harold Pinter
Directed by Ray Michal
At City Stage,
until Jan. 1
The Caretaker, a three-act play,
has only three characters: Mick,
Aston, and Davies. As the play
opens, Mick (Ric Reid) is lying on a
bed in a cluttered room. When he
hears voices, he gets up and quietly
leaves the room. Next to enter the
room are Aston (Allan Gray), and
an elderly man (Duncan Fraser),
whom he met in a cafe. The man
calls himself Davies, but later says
his real name is Jenkins.
Aston and Mick are brothers with
different personalities. Aston, for
example, is a loner who has brought
Davies home presumably as a
gesture of friendship. But Davies
(or Jenkins) does not respond to
Aston's overtures.
Mick, for his part, is domineering
and suspicious — he likes to be in
control, and seems to have Aston's
best interests at heart. When he first
meets Davies, he threatens him, but
then proceeds to offer him a job as
caretaker of the house.
There is nothing friendly about
Mick's overtures to Davies. The title is ironic for several reasons.
First, because Davies isn't really the
caretaker and never becomes one.
In the literal sense, it is Aston who
is the caretaker. But to add further
ambiguity, one could also point to
Mick as the real caretaker who
guides others' lives.
The play is really about the struggle for power — with Davies as the
outsider who thinks he can play the
two brothers off each other and
secure a place for himself. He fails
because the rules of the game,
though unspoken, are obvious only
to Mick and Aston who sometimes
communicate with glances and nonverbal gestures.
What is best about the city stage
production is Duncan Fraser's on-
cue performance as Davies. That
should come as no surprise for
those who have seen Fraser in UBC
productions of two Orton plays.
What the Butler Saw and Entertaining Mr. Sloane, and The Caretaker
last year. In baggy pants that are
forever threatening to drop, Fraser
struts comically around the stage,
carrying his character from cocky
self-confidence to the pathetic
despair of man who becomes the
pariah.
Fraser has plenty of comic
moments — and the play's best one
involves Davies being chased by
Mick with a vacuum cleaner. The
laughter generated by this production of The Caretaker makes the
play immensely watchable. But the
comic moments detract from the
non-verbal menace inherent in
characters' actions.
With the exception of the invasion of the Electrolux in Act II,
there is little that is lastingly
frightening or disturbing about Ric
Reid's Mick. Allan Gray's Aston
fidgets nervously, with awkward
hand and eye gestures that do not
seem natural at times; one is frequently aware of the actor straining
to non - verbally capture Aston's
motions
In baggy pants
threatening to drop,
Fraser gives evening's
best performance
Aston's long speech at the end of
Act II, in which he says his brain
was tampered with because he said
wrong things too many times,
doesn't work because there hasn't
been enough stress on the menace in
the room to convince one of the
violence outside it.
Admittedly, the long speech —
possibly in response to Davies'
neglect  to  respond  to  Aston  —
reads well, but the production also
points out it is a weakness in the
text. It is really the only time Pinter
is explicit about a possible past
(since nothing the characters say
can be taken at face value).
Finally, one must question director Ray Michal's decision to cast
Reid as Mick and Gray as Aston. A
change Michal may want to consider is reversing the roles, with
Gray as Aston. The actor's ascetic
face — which can seem to hide a
multitude of machinations, as
Christopher Walken's does — is
more suited to carry Mick's personality. Aston would be also more
identifiable, and more sympathetic
as a character, with Reid in the role.
Stressing the pauses would be an
additional asset to the production.
There are — count 'em — more
than 160 pauses and silences in the
play; they could serve as bitter
punctuations of emptiness around
the junkyard clutter in Aston's
room.
The production is by no means a
failure. It is only that with so much
going for it — including a realistic
set — it is only advisable that the
production should utilize
everything it has, including two
usually good actors who are off-
key.

SPOONS IN REVIEW AND INTERVIEW
Canada's next Tiit' band dishes
out dismal performance
By NEIL LUCENTE
The Spoons have been branded
with the dubious distinction of being the next Canadian talent most
likely to make it big.
In today's market, making it big
entails the intentional draining of
one's music through a commercial
filter. Last Monday evening at the
Commodore Ballroom, the Spoons
exhibited this leaning towards commercial compromise with a weak
performance of cliche electronic
tinklings and overused drama.
The neuromantic band from
Toronto uses a simple line-up of
bass guitar, drums and synthesizer.
With these basic elements, the
Spoons cranked out a homogenous
sampling of mediocre and worse
disappointments. All songs were
simple compositions, chord changes
were minimal, rhythm and tempo
were indistinguishable from song to
song, and what melody there was
drowned itself out with an overused
synthesizer.
Hooks were not allowed to grab
the listener's attention. Instead, bits
of musical loops were recycled.
Noticeably lacking was the use of
strong backup vocals, the absence
of which emphasized bareness
rather than pillowing the already
hollow sounds.
Lack of musical merit was exacerbated by a series of trite
dramatic conventions. Such cheap
ploys as Godzilla video, billowing
red and pink fog, wind machines,
glow-in-the-dark jumpsuits, and
strobe lighting were supposed to induce gasps of wonder and awe but
instead elicited blank gapes and
yawns.
The band tried to keep an appearance of toughness, maintaining
stony-faced demeanors throughout
the ordeal. But their sham was exposed when they were seen sipping
effete bottles of Perrier.
With the intensity level never going beyond that of an economics
100 lecture, response from the 300
or more designer punks was limited
to some obligatory disco-pogo dancing.
The band plans to spoon out
more of their dismal performances
along the U.S. west coast during
December.
By JACK TIELEMAN
How is the tour going so far and
what has the audience response
been like?
Great! The tour has been going
really well. We've been surprised.
In Calgary the show went really
well, the crowd was dancing a lot.
We played an emphasis on Arias
and Symphonies. Songs like Nova
Heart and the album's title cut were
really popular.
What is
album?
the response to the new
Really good, another surprise,
radio stations that didn't pick-up
Nova Heart when it was first released are picking up Symphonies. The
album has been doing well in
Europe, probably because we grew
up listening to bands thai were
really popular in the U.K.
Who are the artists you have
followed?
There's no one we try to be like
but we listened to a lot of European
artists like early Genesis, Peter
Hamill and Van der Graf
Generator.
Where was the album cover shot?
I don't know. We chose it from
tourist board slides. We wanted a
cover that would give us that clean
cut look.
You are getting a lot of press
coverage and big dates, how has
that affected the band?
We take the important dates for
granted. The first album didn't do
as much as we expected. I am sure it
will come gradually. This part of
the country is a mystery to us. We
don't take things seriously in the
band, like our image is light-hearted
and optimistic. Things aren't that
bad no matter what and can overcome them.
Evolution book hopeful, muddled
z^c<"M^°n
SPOONS
By KERRY REGIER
The Possible and the Actual, first
appears to be a book about evolution. In fact it is something quite
different: a personal comment on
the approach of one human being
to understanding.
The Possible and the Actual
By Francois Jacob
Pantheon Books, $5.25 pb
Jacob's book progresses through
three stages. At first, because it
clarifies a few sticky points, it seems
a simple, straightforward look at
some of the theoretical mechanisms
of evolution, such as adaptation
and natural selection.
But The Possible and the Actual
seems to have no precise viewpoint,
no big picture. There is a wealth of
interesting details, but no immediately apparent system or central idea connecting them.
A passage on the well-known
"argument from design" leaps out:
"If you find a watch, you will
scarcely doubt that it was designed
by a watchmaker. Similarly, if you
consider a complex organism with
all its purposeful organs, you cannot escape the conclusion that it
was designed by the will of a
Creator."
Jacob spends the rest of the book
trying subtly to show that
arguments like this arise from a fundamentally faulty attitude. For example, the argument from design
presupposes an understanding of
the relationship between maker and
made, and that things are the way
they are because someone wills
them to be that way. It is a circular
argument.
If the mechanisms of ontogeny
and phylogeny are in fact predetermined in this way, Jacob says, real
understanding of these mechanisms
is impossible — they would not
have a causal nature, but very
literally a magical one. This would
lead to our thinking being directed
not towards phenomena
themselves, but rather by our idea
about phenomena.
Jacob admits difficulties, asking
"is it possible to elaborate a
theory...that is really free of
ideological bias?"
Of course this is a rhetorical
question. It is not possible. Jacob
has no interest in the impossible,
but rather in the remarkable.
Jacob feels science should be part
of a "dialogue" between the limits
of the imagination, which he terms
the "possible," and the "actual" or
real — ultimately in some sense
knowable — world.
For Jacob, science is hope, for it
extends hope. In superstition, there
is no hope because there is only a
deterministic "is" and no sense of a
possible, imaginative, hopeful
"might be." It is this union of
reason and sentiment (denying sentimentality and machinelike rationality) that the Possible and the
Actual finally asks for.
This explains Jacob's prefatory
quote from Rostand: "Theories
pass, ideas die. But 'The Frog remains'." The world continues in
any case, and life goes on. Page 10

"If I can't dance I don't want to be part of your revolution." — Emma Goldman
The revolution is far off, but UBC's anarchist club
was forced to dance recently to student council's
tune.
The anarchist club had previously asked for a special
projects grant of $70 so they could put out a newsletter. Some council members expressed concern over
what the $70 was to be used for, and hearty debate inevitably followed.
Extended debate did not take place when the
engineering undergraduate society applied for $500,
which leads us to conclude it is not the amount of
money that concerned council, but rather the use to
which it would be put.
Politics, not finances, is what concerns these student
politicians. To them, the amount of money doled out
is less important than to whom it is given.
If you suit their views, you'll get money. If not, and
especially if you are in any way "political" (i.e. they
don't agree with you), then you better not count on
having an easy time obtaining a cheque.
One need be neither an anarchist or an engineer to
see the danger this presents. In being so narrow-
minded, council has vast influence over the political
activities students can afford to engage in on this campus.
Council has no right to hassle those who do not step
into line, and pamper those who do.
Political activity is sorely lacking on this campus.
Students' money would be well spent helping alternative thinkers voice their dissent.

Apartheid okay, but line-ups bug me
Manager, SUB Bank of Montreal:
I am not a student radical. When
I heard of your banks involvement
in South Africa, I was morally
disturbed but did not get very ir-
rate. When I learned of your banks
involvement in various third world
dictatorships, my conscience
bothered me, but I continued to
bank at your bank because of its
convienient locations.
When you closed down the administration building branch, I
became apprehensive about the
quality of service a single branch
could offer. When you sent
students downtown for their student loans, I became alarmed and
finally, angry.
What exactly is a campus bank
other than a bank for students?
This should be your main concern,
not the obscene profit motive which
appears to be driving you now.
Over the last few months I have
spent too much of my valuable time
waiting in line in your bank trying
to get to my money.
On one frustrating occasion I
waited 27 minutes queued up; there
were twenty-two people working in
your bank that day (I made a point
of counting) though only four were
tellers. And please, do not suggest I
apply for your Instabank service.
After a six week waiting period my
first Instabank card did not work,
and after an additional six week
wait, my replacement card appears
to have been 'lost'.
Needless to say, I no longer bank
at your bank. I do not want, need,
or deserve to be constantly reminded of a campus bank which has, for
the last three years and at every opportunity, snubbed its captive
clientele.
Granted, there will be some in-
convienience, but I am in a position
to frequent a bank which will not
frustrate and antagonize me at
every turn.

THE UBYSSEY
December 3,1982
The Ubyssey is published every Tuesday and Friday through the university year by the
Alma Mater Society of the University of B.C. Editorial opinions are those of tha staff and
are not necessarily those of the AMS or the university administration. Member, Canadian
University Press. The Ubyssey's editorial office is in SUB 241k, with the advertising office
in SUB 266. Editorial department 228-2301; Advertising 228-3977.
Things were really cookin' at CUP. Ubyssey staffers had barely finished debate when another cookbook burst upon the scene, sending Shaffin Shariff
and Brian Jones diving for cover under the nearest desk. Craig Brooks just sat and winced to himself. Tom Hawthorn, Glen Sanford, and Keith
Baldrey giggled to themselves. "Cookbooks, not newspapers," they chanted as Robert Beynon and Jane Bartlett tried to figure out why Sarah Cox
and Muriel Draaisma weren't listening. "Hey, big brother Bill has a recipe in here," exclaimed little Jack Tieleman as Eric Eggertson and Arnold
Hedstrom began priming the campstove that had been donated by the mysterious Friends of CUP. "We're just one big happy family," chimed Kelley
Jo Burke as Robby Robertson called everyone to dinner. Rick Katz and Alison Hoens readied their cameras for historic photos, but Donna Sanford
had something else brewing. "Let's do it," hollered Neil Lucente as he sped off to the bookstore with Kerry Regier in close pursuit. "Give us all your
copies of Food 101," panted Peter Burns as Harry Hertscheg and Victor Wong frantically began searching through the stacks for the infamous
volume, "it's just more of CUP'S poisonous bilge," lamanted Lisa Morry as the rest of the staff joined in the gastric orgasm Meanwhile back at

Douse Red Hot now
We would like the following to be
included in the Letter to the Editor
section of your newspaper. Thank
you very much.
We empathize with the
Wimmin's Fire Brigade and are in
support of their goals of closing
down all Red Hot Video outlets.
Although we do not agree with the
action of fire bombing, we understand the frustrations experienced by
these women and the actions taken.
It is unfortunate that requests to
the B.C. attorney general's department and various city councils failed to close these establishments. To
allow these outlets to continue to do
business and make money from the
sale of video films which portray
women as objects to be violated,
degraded, and humiliated (eg. a
scene of a woman being gang raped)
is abhorrent.
The survival of these businesses
serves to legitimize and thus encourage the present high rates of
violence against women. Allan
Fotheringham (Province, Sunday,
Nov. 28, 1982) correctly suggests
that if men were degraded for the
enjoyment of women, the Red Hot
Video outlets would be closed.
Given both a new constitution
and a provincial human rights code
that entrench equal rights, as well as
municipal policies and guidelines
regarding business licensing, it is
ironic that these outlets are allowed
TA meeting was
misrepresented
It was appropriate that Yorgos
Papatheodorou's letter, in part suggesting you can't believe everything
you read in newspapers, appeared
in The Ubyssey the same day the
paper chose to misrepresent the
position of the Teaching Assistant
Union in their current contract
negotiations (Nov. 26, TA's to
Hold Strike Vote), I'm not accusing
anyone of being biased, only inaccurate.
The TAU membership did, in
fact, vote to hold a strike vote
within three weeks of the Nov. 25
meeting, as reported. However, the
main issue to be resolved is not the
wage offer, but rather the university's attempt to take advantage of
the current economic situation and
anti-labour sentiment in this province to destroy the TAU. The
university is offering a contract it
knows no union could accept, one
that would seriously weaken existing job security and union security clauses. Clearly the university is
trying to force a showdown,
something it believes we can't win.
A second, more serious inaccuracy is a sin of omission rather
than commission. No mention is
made in your article of the fact that
those of us who voted against calling a strike vote overwhelmingly
supported the union's position on
the unresolved issues. Only one of
the speakers at the meeting spoke in
any way against fighting for the
issues. The rest of the speakers
against calling a strike vote felt
there are several untried options
that would be more effective in
pressuring the university.
The union membership has clearly shown that it will not settle for
less than the current contract, with
the job and union security clauses
intact, and an 8.1 per cent wage increase, the same the other campus
unions signed for. That we should
have any difficulty at all in achieving such modest demands is simply
an indication of what assholes run
this university.

—run for senate
Nominations are now open for 12
student senators to be elected by
faculty and five senators to be
elected at large. Two board of
governors positions are also
available.
I would like to encourage
students to participate so that we
have an effective student voice on
both senate and the board. The
deadline for nominations is rapidly
approaching — it is Dec. 22. Forms
are available from Ken Young, the
registrar, in the administration
building.
Did you know that senate is the
students' highest possible academic
appeal? Several five year programs
are proposed to become four year
programs and this must go through
senate. As well there are committees
that deal with all curriculum
changes and all admissions requirements. Senate has a budget
and priorities committee that meets
jointly with the board to discuss any
implementation of cutbacks. Did
you know that your board reps
negotiate your tuition fee hike?
A pamphlet called, Student
Senate Handbook, is hot off the
press and available to interested
students from your undergrad or
grad constituency office, or from
the senate office, SUB 250. It
details the roles of: senate, students
on the senate, and student senate
caucus. In addition the many senate
committees are described. The purpose of this 33 pages of information
is to ensure continuity and quality
of participation of students on
senate.
I hope that there will be a good
selection of candidates running.
This would create a higher level of
awareness of the dramatic fiscal and
academic changes facing our education system.

Herpetic 'hoax9
didn 9t tickle
funny bones
I am writing on behalf of twenty-
eight members of faculty of the
school of nursing to register our
protest about the article in The
Ubyssey of Nov. 16, entitled "Pool
closes, officials anticipate
epidemic."
We feel that this article, while undoubtedly cleverly written, is an example of very irresponsible journalism. It caused unnecessary concern for individuals and inconvenience to pool and health centre
staff. Surely enough misinformation on this emotive topic has been
presented by the press without a
university publication adding to the
sordid output.
I was told on the telephone by
one of your staff that the purpose
of the "hoax story" is to teach the
public to become discriminating
readers. I fear you have succeeded
all too well, because many people
said, "Don't worry about it, no one
takes The Ubyssey seriously
anyway!" This is unfortunate.

Bunny suits beat extreme thinking anytime
Trade unions have indeed done
much for the cause of peace, and a
leading role can rightly be claimed
by many unionists. From the global
efforts of Socialist International to
the local shop steward with his
pamphlets, peace and labour are
closely interlinked.
Still, it would be a mistake to see
the peace movement as purely a
labour issue, and shocking as Bill
Tieleman seems to find it, other
people also care about the arms
race. Furthermore, although
Tieleman no doubt wants to support the Teaching Assistants Union,
he does it a great disservice by
categorizing its opponents as blatant and misguided anti-unionists.
It is this brand of extreme thinking
which makes democratic unionism
so difficult, but I think in this case
the facts will speak for themselves.
Most of the controversy started
back in 1980, when the TAU was
bargaining for its first contract.
Their two main goals were compulsory union membership and
complete equality of pay across
departments. This did not appeal to
those of us working in science, since
we were already the most highly
paid workers, and would in effect
be forced to contribute to a union
which was actively working against
us.
Our concerns were amply
justified. The first TAU contract
gained us nothing, and the
undergraduate TAs (in physics at
least) took a pay cut of almost 40
percent. I think that even Tieleman
denounced the negotiating team
that year.
Needless to say, many of us saw
decertification as the only alternative, and the campaign was soon
underway. There was strong support from physics, biochemistry,
zoology and geography, but many
TAs from other departments shared
our concerns and signed our petition. Many more people expressed
their support.
It soon became apparent,
however, that most TAs wanted to
keep the union, and that the effort
to decertify would not succeed. We
left our outstanding petitions uncollected, and the issue has remained dormant for the past eight months. Most of us consider it to be
closed.
Objectively viewed, the decertification campaign illustrates
democratic unionism at its best.
The TAU petitioned to certify, and
we petitioned to decertify. Votes
were held and signatures collected,
and arguments raged back and
forth all the time. In the end, of
course, our group lost, but collectively we emerged with bargaining
agents we could all agree on,
challenged by some but confirmed
by the majority. What more could
one ask for?
In any event, I have long considered the fight to be over, as do
most of the other people involved.
In fact, when I ran into the former
president of the TAU at a party
recently, we talked more about the
philosophy of science than TAU
activism. Old fights are best left
behind us.
Still, if Tieleman insists on dragging up the past, the least I can do is
explain the facts. And just to
forestall any further revelations, I
might as well detail my entire
political record, so that potential
discriminating groups on campus
will not have to go by hearsay and
innuendo.
In addition to opposing the TAU
and defending the Red Rag, I opposed the compulsory fee levy for
B.C.P.I.R.G., supported
autonomy for The Ubyssey,
defended Lady Godiva, joined
CAUSE and opposed creationism,
defended the EUS newsletter when
the dean wanted to shut it down,
petitioned against bad food in Place
Vanier, and, in the 1980 federal
election, ran for parliament in
Vancouver-Quadra, representing
the engineering students party with
a libertarian platform and a pink
and grey rabbit suit. (Lest anyone
think this was a failure, I am pleased to relate that I outpolled Alan
Soroka of the CPC(ML) by 63 votes
to 47, despite the fact that I made
only two campaign appearances
and could hardly talk through my
rabbit costume.)
I have always believed that
dissatisfaction should be acted on,
and that political action should be
based as broadly as possible. Pure
and extreme solutions are usually
unappealing, and success in a
democracy is often the result of imaginative compromise. (The rest of
Attack didn 9t belong here
I was somewhat surprised to see
The Ubyssey allow its letters page to
be used for what is tantamount to a
personal attack on one individual
by another. I refer to Peaceniks'
Speaker Scab (Ubyssey, Nov. 30) in
which Bill Tieleman attacks Andrew Milne.
In the letter Tieleman states that
because of Milne's anti-TAU views
and activities he has no right to talk
about nuclear disarmament. One's
viewpoint on a particular issue does
not necessarily determine one's
viewpoint on another.

nothing more essential to

Keep abortion debate intelligent
This letter is directed towards
Naomi Buckingham and concerns
the letter in the Nov. 30 Ubyssey.
The object of your letter appeared
to be to discredit Sheri Dekoven's
letter, in which she supports a rational decision to the abortion
debate. You hav presented a poor
argument.
For example, you broadly state
that Hitler has absolutely nothing in
common with Pro-life. The statement is not only incongrous with
your argument but is also false.
Hitler tried to force his ideals on
others and Pro-life is also trying to
force its ideals on others. Were yur
just trying to stir up some emotions
with this reference to Hitler?
You also speak of selection as if it
is something evil. If you educate
yourself with animal behavior you
will find that selection is a natural
process  that  started  long  before

of good or evil with it. The

You also say that physical death
is a greater concern than mental
health. The physical death of an
embryo is insignificant when compared to the possible effects a mental disorder may have on society.

Election loser's win 'was rigged'
By ROBERT BEYNON
The engineers may have rigged
Alan Pinkney's recent appointment
as Alma Mater Society interim
Director of Administration.
The whole question of choosing
an interim DoA arose during the
mid-October by-election, when
elections commissioner Al Irwin
said campaign irregularities had
been reported.
Student council then delayed approval of the by-election's results
pending student court's decision
regarding the irregularities. Then
possible engineering conniving
began.
Though the election was essentially fought between the engineers
and fraternities, and engineering-
supportive selections committee
chose the student court judges. The
engineers' president, Rich Day and
the representative for nursing, who
traditionally support engineers,
both sat on the eight member com-
Analysis
mittee. So did science president
Grant Sutton and Home Economics
representative Jane Newton, both
who follow EUS's voting line on
council.
This was not questioned in council.
And nobody thought it strange
when they nominated Bill Richardson, Fred's engineering correspondent, to the court.
In court AMS vice-president Cliff
Stewart, an engineer, accused the
fraternities candidate, Scott Ando,
and the elections commissioner, Al
Irwin, of irregularities in the election. Meanwhile Ando accused the
Engineering-supported candidate,
Alan Pinkney, of irregularities.
During the trial Irwin, who
Stewart accused, and Stewart, who
nobody accused, discussed Ando's
irregularities. No judge thought it
strange the accused and the accusor
agreed where the guilt really lay.

heart, you can always bullshit your way to success at UBC. After all, no one would know this photo is six years
old if we didn't tell them.
From VCC to CFS to Moncton
Universite de Moncton students
who occupied their administration
building to protest board of governors secrecy and highest tuition fees
in Canada, have finally got their
$500 from the national student
organization.
The national conference of the
Canadian Federation of Students
voted against a motion two weeks
ago to give the money, due to lack
of funds.
The money is to go towards the
students' legal defense fund.
The CFS central committee voted
last week to give the money after
Vancouver Community College's
board of directors voted to accept a
March student referendum to join
the organization.
VCC's membership fees now
mean the donation is possible, CFS-
B.C. Deputy chair Stephen Learey
said.
VCC board members had ques
tioned the validity of the referendum, Learey said. But independant
legal advice cleared the vote, he
said.
VCC joins Simon Fraser as full
CFS members from B.C. UBC and
the University of Victoria are both
currently prospective members of
the national student organization.
Several Moncton students were
arrested by New Brunswick police
at the sit-in. The students had
shown up at the building to protest
planned tuition fee increases, that
made it among the country's
highest.
The board recessed and moved to
a downtown hotel, bar, where the
tuition increase was formally decided.
released in mid-November found
the fraternities' candidate, Ando,
guilty of late campaigning and moving a ballot box.
The second decision is particularly strange as Ando himself was not
actually accused of moving the poll
in the trial. Fraternity members,
who remained anonymous, had
been accused of moving it.
Also, elections commissioner Irwin, who had been accused of violations, was not mentioned in the
report.
Engineering-supported candidate
Pinkney was only found guilty of
trivial infractions.
But the court did not give
Pinkney the DoA title. They voided
the election. The AMS then asked a
selections committee to choose an
interim DoA.
The committee was the same
engineer — controlled selections
committee who chose student
court's judges. Luckily for them,
Pinkney alone applied for the interim DoA position and they accepted his nomination.
Wednesday night council accepted this committee's minutes
and accepted Pinkney as interim
DoA without discussion.
Apparently engineers supported
their candidate throughout the
selection process, as any group
would. If you can do it scot free, do
it.
The question is why the AMS
structure allows for this partisan
support. Possibly a committee
should be formed to examine the
system. A committee controlled
by. . .
UBC prof killed in
campus collision
By KELLEY JO BURKE
A UBC professor died in a
bicycle/motor vehicle collision on
campus Tuesday.
The victim's name will not be
released until the cyclist's family
has been notified, Andy Pushcall
from campus RCMP said Wednesday.
The accident occurred at 4:40
p.m. at the corner of Wesbrook and
SUB boulevard. The cyclist, identified as an exchange professor
from Peking, was heading north on
Wesbrook. He was struck by a
south-bound vehicle while attempting to make a left turn onto the
boulevard.
"At this time there is no evidence
against the driver," Pushcall said,
"No charges are contemplated."
The  professor's  wife  and  two
children, awaiting his return to Peking in August, are still unaware of
the accident, a fellow exchange professor said Thursday.
The RCMP need witnesses to the
accident.
"There were a number of people
that may have seen what actually
happened," Pushcall said. "Very
few came forward."
Fifteen bicycle-related accidents
have occurred on campus this year,
he said. This is a slight increase over
last year. The RCMP are concerned.
"A lot of cyclists aren't following
the Motor Vehicle Act ... use of
headlights, obeying stop signs, so
on," he said.
"The victim had no lights, no
reflectors," he added.
Daycare vote
brings in bucks
Students' decision to help fund
the renovation of campus daycare
facilities has encouraged other
organizations to do the same.
"The money is beginning to add
up now and I think a lot of it is due
to student support," said daycare
coordinator Mab Oloman. "People
like to see students helping out."
The Alma Mater Society is expected to grant $50,000 for daycare
renovations next Wednesday.
Daycare has received approximately
$30,000 from a dozen other foundations said Nathan Divinsky, president's advisory council on daycare
chair.
The UBC Alumni Women have
been trying to raise money for the
renovations projects, said Oloman.
The situation has "perked up"
because over $5,000 has been raised
and they are still collecting funds,
Divinsky said. The Vancouver
Foundation   is   the   other   major
organization which has contributed
to the project, he said.
Some of the funds may be acquired gradually over the next few
years, Divinsky said. "I'm optimistic that the $200,000 will be
raised," he added.
The UBC administration loaned
daycare more than $200,000 for
work to go ahead, said Oloman.
The money that is currently being
raised will go toward paying back
the university, she said.
Oloman said the work will be
"purely emergency work to bring
daycare up to fire regulations."
"The facilities will be revamped,
but won't be luxurious," said
Divinsky.
'Racial' attack leaves one dead
VANCOUVER (CUP) — An attack on two Vietnamese refugees that left one man dead and another
injured is being condemned as racially motivated by a
local anti-racist group.
Loi and Loc Tran were beaten and left lying unconscious on a suburban street. Loi was accidently run
over by a truck and died as a result of his injuries.
The two men were driving through Surrey when a
car cut them off and forced them to stop, said Charan
Gill, B.C. Organization to Fight Racism president. Someone threw a beer bottle at Loi's car and when he got
out to investigate, a fight broke out.
Laurie White, a Simon Fraser University student
and BCOFR executive member, said the incident was
definitely racially motivated.
"These kinds of incidents happen here all the time
and they are on the increase," said white. "There's
been a lot of racist violence in B.C. especially in the
last two or three years."
Gill said it is incredibly unjust when a refugee is offered a "chance for a new life" by the Canadian
government and then killed is by racist thugs once they
arrive.
The BCOFR will provide Loc Tran with legal advice
and support, he said.
By popular decree, Tuesday
has been cancelled.

THE    UBYSSEY

Next week there is only
one paper — on Thursday.
Since it is going to be a
large one (relatively), the
deadline for Tweens and letters is Tuesday at 1 p.m.
Letters should preferably be
in on Monday.
Because the Vista / classified and letters pages are
being typeset and pasted up
Tuesday night, no late letters or Tweens can be accepted. Sorry.
Have a good Christmas.

Council votes for anarchy grant
By MURIEL DRAAISMA
Anarchy reigned at Wednesday's
student council meeting.
Physical education representative
Dree Thomson asked why student
council should give UBC's anarchist club $70 to publish a newsletter. "I'm wondering what they are
going to publish; what will be the
content of the newsletter?" she
said.
Council Briefs
Commerce representative Don
Hamagami also expressed concern
over the club's application for
funds. He said students should
know what their fees are being used
for.
"Why spend $70 and just waste
it?" he said after the meeting.
"You  don't  want   to  throw  the
money away — there has to be some
sort of screening process."
Student administrative commission member Alexis Cherkezoff
disagreed. She said AMS funds are
designed to help clubs. Vice-
president Cliff Stewart said the two
dissenting council members probably wanted the motion tabled
because they disagreed with the
club's political leaning.
"We're treading awfully close to
censorship?' said graduate student
senator Ken Freeman, while other
council members voiced the problems with restricting club
freedoms
The SAC minutes awarding the
grant were approved without much
more discussion.

The company the AMS has contracted to build the new art gallery
in one corner of the conversation
pit, Sherwin-McRae Contract Services, went bankrupt Monday,
AMS president Dave Frank announced. AMS genera* manager
Charles Redden said the AMS will
not be liable for more than the contract price.
"We will enter into direct
negotiations with the 10 trades to
speed things up and to ensure no increase in price?' he said, adding
there might be a month's delay in
the building of the art gallery if a
dispute arises between the AMS and
the trustee regarding the amount
owed to the bankrupt company.

Council passed a motion approving the engineering undergraduate
society's application for a $500
special projects grant for an
engineering conference. EUS presi-
MONTREAL (CUP) — A
special gay issue of Concordia
University's student newspaper has
met with threats of violence from
some readers.
Three letters signed by "the committee to rid fags from the
universe" were left in The Link office Nov. 22. After calling three gay
issue contributors abusive names,
the letter writers threatened
violence if The Link published any
further articles on the topic.
According to Link staffers, about
5,000 copies of the gay issues were
destroyed the previous weekend.
No one has claimed responsibility
for either act and the police are currently investigating the situation.
Jon Wolfe, co-ordinator of Concordia's lesbian and gay friends,
was one of the contributors
threatened with castration. Wolfe
said his initial reaction to the letters
was fear.
"I was willing to go out on a limb
and write what I felt. I think it was
a courageous thing to do," he said.
Non — students
in charge
at
Your Alma Mater Society student
card now gets you entrance in an exclusive little cabaret — the Pit.
While non-students will continue
to pay an evening cover charge
Monday through Friday, card carriers will waltz in free of charge.
"It's a private club," said Pit
manager Graham Smythe, "The
new door policy favors students, it
does not discriminate against non-
students."
Everyone, academic position notwithstanding, will be expected to
chip in for Friday nights' exciting
live performances, he said.
Smythe is unperturbed by suggestions made, generally by the
cultural pretenders who frequent
the Art Gallery lounge, that the Pit
is a swarmy, loud, and uninviting
hole, fully deserving of its name.
"I've always heard the Pit is an
obnoxious place to go," he said,
"But that never stopped people
from going there."
Cliff Stewart, AMS vice-
president, said that it didn't concern council that this decision had
been made without student
representatives.
"Council has total jurisdiction
over the decision, but by and large
decisions made by management
usually go," he said.
"I will stand by that. I'm willing to
be responsible for my actions."
Editor Don Pittis, who was also
threatened, said "The letters
threaten our concept of freedom of
the press. That anyone thinks they
can change what we say by writing
these letters is scary. We don't
revolve our whole opinion around a
letter we receive from a crank."
Pittis added this incident would
not discourage The Link from
speaking out on controversial
issues.
Mike Spino, engineering and
computer science association president, said engineering students
destroyed some of the gay issues.
Spino said he saw many copies of
The Link ripped up and strewn on
the floor of the engineering lounge
the day the issue came out.
"I know of certain people who
are engineers who were deeply offended" by the issue, he said.
Many of those who spoke with
Spino said they thought the issue
expressed the opinion that
"everyone is gay, or that everyone
should be gay or that everyone has
gay tendencies."
Pittis agreed that the issue came
from "very much of a gay point of
view." But he added, "that was
part of the purpose, to present the
concerns and opinions of that community which is seldom seen.
There's a gay presence at Concordia
that has been ignored."
Wolfe said this is the first time he
has seen a violent reaction to
homosexuals at Concordia,
although he knows of minor incidences of harassment. He said lesbian and gay friends "are not at all
afraid to lay criminal charges
against anyone who does any
violent act towards us. We're not
going to disappear because
somebody beat us up."
dent Rich Day said a grant is needed
"to help offset the shortfall in expected revenue from our ailing
friends in the corporate world."
Few members asked Day to
elaborate on the need for such a
large sum of money, but when the
motion regarding the home
economics travel grant was
presented, home economics
representative Jane Newton received a barrage of questions.
"Why do you want to send three
representatives to the home
economics national conference in
Edmonton, and not two?," "Why
should the AMS give you $400?"
asked several members.
Medicine representative Sherri
Dickinson said sending three
delegates to their national conference was "a good idea" considering UBC is a large campus.
Paper threatened

AQUATIC CENTRE gets new skylights, boring outline would read if vile
rag was typical community flack sheet. But for entertainment of demented
UBC students, cynical troll types out insane drivel, finding most unlikely
explanations for typical campus scenes. Unfortunately troll is sick in bed, so
meek reporter writes meaningless garbage to fill in space. Send get well
cards to rag's office, or just flush them down toilet.
■The motion was passed.

A meeting to discuss The
Ubyssey's financial situation was
set for Friday at 12:30 p.m. in council chambers. Finance director
James Hollis said the meeting will
assess The Ubyssey's deficit from
the summer paper, the Conven-
tioner/Summer Ubyssey.
"One tactic we will discuss is increasing ad content," said Hollis.
"It's a problem we have to clean
up before the dollars run out and
the presses stop running," said
Frank, claiming "the bottom has
fallen out of the advertisement
market."
The Ubyssey cancelled its Thursday edition this year, due to an expected 35 per cent decrease in local
ad sales.
Glass divides
split Ireland
even further
Class divisions are just as important as ethnic divisions in Northern
Ireland, a geography professor
from Northern Ireland told 30 people in Geography 201 Wednesday
afternoon.
Frederick Boal, who is visiting
the University of Toronto this year,
said middle class Protestants and
Catholics in Northern Ireland are
much less likely to resort to sectarian violence than are their working class counterparts.
He said this trend is particularly
apparent in the suburbs of Belfast,
where the two middle class communities are more likely to co-exist,
rather than in Belfast's older inner
city areas.
Beyond the situation in the
suburbs, he said, the two communities remain divided.
"There are two almost completely non-overlapping social
networks," he said, characterizing
the Protestant and Catholic communities as "two relatively normal
societies in parallel."
As a geographer, Boal said he is
interested in examining how the two
communities physically separate
themselves from each other in an
urban environment.
On a more general level, Boal
said the Northern Irish problem
stems from the fact that too many
people readily identify with one
group or the other, as opposed to
Canada where there is much less
cultural homogeneity.
News flash: NDP for motherhood
By CRAIG BROOKS
Prime minister Pierre Trudeau
has a "two-faced" policy on
nuclear disarmament, federal NDP
leader Broadbent said Sunday.
Pegreeless TA fired
A physics department graduate who worked this year as a teaching
assistant lacked even a bachelor of science degree.
When asked about the student's recent discovery and subsequent
firing of the student, physics teaching assistant co-ordinator Betty
Howard said: "No comment. The dean should speak on this."
Graduate studies dean Peter Larkin said: "No comment. I think
it's a private matter."
Physics head D. Williams said Brent Wade received a letter from
the graduate studies faculty asking him to leave.
When asked if Wade had a degree, Williams said, "You'll have to
ask the University of Cincinatti that."
So The Ubyssey did. According to U of C records Wade did not
graduate from there in physics.
When asked how graduate students are chosen, Williams said the
physics department examines applications and then gives approved
ones to the graduate studies faculty for approval.
Wade could not be reached for comment.
Trudeau supports disarmament
when he represents Canada internationally, but still allows Canada to
be part of the arms race, Broadbent
told delegates to the Party's annual
B.C. convention, held this year in
the Hotel Vancouver.
Recent referendums on nuclear
disarmament, in which more than
75 percent of voters gave the federal
government a mandate to negotiate
to halt the arms race, are being ignored, Broadbent said. "It is time
the prime minister of Canada listened to the people of Canada. We
need a consistent policy of nuclear
disarmament. It is clearly what a
majority of Canadians want."
Broadbent recommended Canada
spend $7 million each year, one-
tenth of one percent of its national
defence budget, on promoting
disarmament. Trudeau rejected the
suggestion, he said.
The NDP will remain firm in its
nuclear freeze and disarmament
policies said Broadbent.
B.C. NDP leader Dave Barrett
also addressed the disarmament
issue in a speech Saturday.
He criticized a defence opportunity seminar sponsored by the
provincial economic development
and United States defence departments. "There is no reason for us to
kowtow for someone else's war
machines," Barrett said.
Barrett also criticized the current
U.S. and Soviet Union leadership.
"Drug store cowboys do not make
for international statesmen, nor do
former heads of internal police," he
said.
It is hypocritical of the U.S.
government to be holding hearings
on excluding Canadian lumber sales
from U.S. markets, while at the
same time enticing Canadian
busisnesses, universities and
governments to become financially
involved in the arms race, Barrett
said. " I say, let us build houses,
not destroy them." Page 16
