 Fee fighters
wear black
Black Tuesday will descend on
the UBC campus next week.
In response to administration
recommendations for 30 per cent
tuition fee hikes, the Students for
an Accessible Education declared
Jan. 25 to be Black Tuesday at
UBC. SAE is encouraging students
to wear something black, or black
armbands, to mourn the decline in
quality of post-secondary education.
"Instead of assembling all
students and protesting noisily, this
will be a quiet protest, but still very
visible," said SAE spokesperson
Paul Yaskowich. "Jan. 26 was
designated Black Tuesday because
that is the day the board of governors is meeting to discuss tuition fee
increases," he added.
Students should express concern
over the threats made to the quality
of education, and show their
solidarity in opposing tuition increases, said Yaskowich. "There is
a definite problem, and a lot of people are concerned," he said.
Yaskowich said SAE found the
president's retrenchment committee
recommendations,      released See page 3: STUDENTS
Computer cuts
'don't add up'
Wednesday, appalling. "We were
shocked to find they would make
students pay that much of a tuition
fee increase," he said.
But the provincial government is
primarily responsible for the erosion of quality education, said
Yaskowich. "The provincial
government isn't keeping up with
inflationary cost increases, nor is it
keeping up to the federal government in its share of post-secondary
education funding. It is promoting
mismanagement by the UBC administration by holding back
money while asking them to expand
certain faculties," he said.
"The provincial government is
totally irresponsible in its committment to education."
As part of its continuing struggle
for accessibility to post-secondary
education, SAE will hold an open
public meeting in SUB on Thursday. "We're looking for new ideas,
new suggestions for action, and new
suggestions on how we can show the
administration and government our
dissatisfaction with their present attitudes," Yaskowich said.
UBC computer resources will be
unable to keep pace with ever-
increasing demand if proposed
budget cutbacks go through, computing centre director Al Fowler
said Monday.
A retrenchment committee
recommended Wednesday that
$290,000 of the computing centre's
$5 million budget be trimmed as
part of a series of cuts designed to
meet UBC's current budgetary
shortfall of $7.2 million.
"On a percentage basis, our (cut)
is one of the larger, if not the largest
(in the university)," Fowler said.
Arts cuts largest claims dean
See page 3
The computing centre will cut its
annual allocation for new computer
equipment rather than staff, Fowler
said. " I am very loath to cut back in
(already) overworked staff."
Fowler added that to reduce staff
would have been more disasterous.
"Computer people are a very finite
resource. If we lose them now, we
might not get them back."
"It is much easier to tell a
machine it's not wanted than a person," he added.
The greatly reduced capital ac-
quisiton budget will mean that
upgrading the computer is a "long
ways off," Fowler said. "It is
highly unlikely I'll be able to get
another computer. (Users) are going to be faced with a zero per cent
increase (in service)."
Fowler said annual increases of
20 per cent in demand for computer
resources cannot be met with the
centre's current equipment for very
But Fowler praised the work of
the retrenchment committee.
"They had a tough job to do.
There's a reasonable chance I
would have thought the same way,
(if I had been on the committee),"
he said.
UBC's computer users' committee chairperson Afton Cayford
agreed with Fowler's choice of cutting equipment expenditures rather
than staff.
"We are probably suffering more
from a lack of software programm
ing work, than reaching the capacity of the (current) machine," he
said. "The need for software work
is more pressing."
Computer science graduate student Gord Simon called the funding
cuts "disgusting."
"The computing centre is one of
the more valuable resources on
campus," he said. "But the cuts
probably won't make a difference
in the short term."
Fowler said the centre's cutback
was just part of a series of cuts in
"non-academic" areas. He cited
cutbacks of $500,000 for the library
and $1 million for physical plant as
similar examples.
"(The non-academic title) seems
to be a bit of a misnomer (for the
centre)," Fowler said. Seventy-five
per cent of our work is for academic
"We probably have the largest
ratio of non-salary to total
budget," Fowler said. This makes it
easier to cut expenditures without
having to cut staff, he said.

Ignorance winning in election
What if they held an election and
no one came? Or better yet, what if
they held an election and no one
understood what was going on?
It appears there are slightly more
students voting in this year's election for student representatives to
the university senate and board of
governors, but it also appears the
voters are slightly more ignorant of
what's happening.
Poll clerk Cathy Schmitt, who
worked at the advance poll in Gage
Towers Monday night, said a lot of
people did not know who the candidates were or what positions they
were running for.
"They even asked me for advice
on who to vote for," Schmitt said.
She said most students voted according to faculty.
TAs, UBC clash over services
Teaching assistant union pickets
will surround UBC Friday but their
impact on regular campus activity
and services is still unknown.
Campus unions and the university met Monday to determine which
personnel are essential to operate
the university, said TAU spokesperson Keith Baldrey.
But the meeting's results appear
inconclusive and no agreement on
essential service levels was reached.
The health science centre,
hospitals, student residences, student services, campus patrol and
security all employ essential staff,
according to assistant employee
relations director Wes Clark.
But the TAU will still picket access gates near the health sciences
buildings at the campus perimeter.
"Because unionized personnel
work in the hospital complex, we
will be picketing the complex," said
Baldrey. "But all essential personnel, both medical and non-medical,
will be allowed to cross. There will
be    no    inconvenience    to    any operate.   The   administration   will

Gunpoint rape at SFU
Canadian University Press
One woman has been raped and two others abducted at gunpoint since
Dec. 4, Simon Fraser University Women's Centre representatives said last
The first attack came at 10:30 p.m. Dec. 4 when a woman walking to
her car was raped in SFU parking lot. Burnaby RCMP are preparing a
composite drawing of the attacker.
Another woman was abducted at gunpoint three days later by a man
driving a yellow foreign car.
University safety officer Tom Bennett said police involved thought the
incidents involved two different attackers.
But Women's Centre spokesperson Lisa Price said the man in the yellow
car is known to have attacked two women.
A second woman was abducted at gunpoint in the first week of January.
"The first woman was hitchhiking, the second was simply jogging, so we
are urging people not to hitchhike alone, not to jog alone, not to walk to
cars alone," said Price. "If you see a yellow car coming, don't stop to
look; run away," She warned SFU students.
The less-than-exciting election
concludes today at 3:30 p.m.
Voting starts at polls around the
campus at 9:30 a.m.
Four candidates are running for
the two student positions on the
board of governors. Dave Dale
(commerce 4) and Francis Janes
(engineering 3) are running as a
team, while Ron Krause (medicine
2) is running as part of a 'progressive' slate. Kerry Armstrong
(physical education 4) is the other
Six candidates are running for the
five senator at large positions. Chris
Fulker (arts 4) and Stephen Henderson (arts 4) are both incumbents.
Michael Shepard (science 3) and
Bob Summerbell (arts 3) are 'progressive' slate candidates. The other
candidates are Sharon Provost
(nursing 3) and Mark Thompson
(arts 3).
In graduate studies, 'progressive'
slate candidate Ken Freeman takes
on David Kirshener, while in
science 'progressive' slate candidate
Horacio de la Cueva takes on
William Milosevic.
Candidate profiles were run in
Friday's Ubyssey, and about 100
lunch-eating students were subjected to a lackluster all-candidates
meeting noon Thursday in the SUB
conversation pit.
Current student board of governors representative Chris Niwinski,
a member of the elections committee, estimated about 350 students
voted in the advance polls at
residences Monday. This is a slight
increase over last year. Page 2

Students sit in over tuition
Canadian University Press
Two separate sit-ins in Ontario
last week saw angry students take
on university administrators over
tuition increases and the quality of
education, and in one case force a
compromise solution.
Frustrated with a lack of
classroom space and an unresponsive administration, about 50 advertising students at London's Fanshawe College occupied their
department offices Jan. 12. One
day earlier, 75 students at the
University of Ottawa took over the
offices of the university's rector to
protest a hefty tuition increase.
The 30-hour occupation at Fanshawe began at 10 that morning
when the demonstrators filed into
<he  offices,   armed  with  sleeping
bags, and prepared for a lengthy
"The students were asking for
very basic educational needs," said
Fanshawe student union president
Tim Wharton. "They were not going to get the education they had
hoped for and were promised." The
student union supported the
demonstrators by providing meals
during the occupation and
negotiating with the college administration.
The students had been
negotiating with the department
since September, after the college
had accepted twice as many
students as they had space for, hoping to get more space and equipment from the Ontario government, Wharton said.
But Fanshawe did not receive the
needed funds, and when students
returned to classes in January they
found the advertising arts department had implemented major cutbacks, which doubled the size of
classes, reduced staff, and denied
students access to facilities after 5
Wharton said the students decided to occupy their departmental offices when they realized they
weren't going to get solutions "any
other way." The protestors remained in the office overnight, and ended their occupation at 4:30 p.m.

and students reached a compromise

Creationisf gives stark truth
Creationist Michael Stark stepped out of his role as a scientist
Thursday, and stoutly defended his
belief that creation should be taught
in public school science classes.
Sponsored by the Baptist student
union, the biochemistry Ph.D. was
the focus of a question and answer
debate on the theory of origin attended by 20 people in Angus 215.
When asked if it was fair for
creation to be taught to atheists, or
to children of other religions, Stark
replied: "Is anything ever fair?
Must I submit my children to the
prevailing point of view — evolution?" But he did say the children
should still be taught science in
public schools.
Although Stark said the concept

what staff will respect picket lines,
said Clark.
Student council decides Wednesday whether its services with non-
unionized employees will open. The
TAU is asking that services such as
the Pit and games area close,
Baldrey said.
The unionized staff have already
said they will respect the TAU
pickets, he added.
Student council at its December
meeting defeated a motion of support for the union. The TAU will
make a presentation at
Wednesday's meeting urging support, said Baldrey.
"So far no one has talked to us so
any motion will happen at
council," said AMS vice president
Pat Chow.
Baldrey said the union hopes
students will respect picket lines and
not attend classes. But students living in residences are not obliged to
stay off campus, he added.
"We don't want to keep students
from their home during the strike.
We are asking that they not go to
class or events on campus."
Unless the university makes provision to provide non union kitchen
staff and attendants, there will not
be any services in the residences,
Baldrey said.
of religious education in the home
was an "ideal one," he felt alternate theories are needed to supplement the home teaching.
"I am not enthusiastic about the
teaching of origins by an individual
who was not educated or qualified,
or by someone not in sympathy
with the word of God," Stark said.
As for the literal interpretation of
the Bible, Stark said, "just as there
is a science of zoology, there is a
science of interpretation."
Stark said he doesn't demand
that the public agree with him, just
that people question their own
When asked "do you favor the
teaching of creation in public
school science classes," Stark
countered with "do you accept
evolution?" The questioner replied
that he accepted it as the most
reasonable natural explanation, to
which Stark retorted, "Why do you
reject the supernatural?"
Said Stark: "The public is either
strongly for or strongly against the
concept of creation." As for
himself, he said he is not in contact
with his own field (biochemistry)
any more.
rehire  the   staff  needed  to   keep
facilities open after 5 p.m.
But while the Fanshawe student
union offered support to protesters,
the occupation of the rector's office
at the University of Ottawa Jan. 11
was prompted by the failure of that
university's students federation
(SFUO) to challenge a 15.5 per cent
tuition increase.
The two-hour sit-in followed an
afternoon press conference held by
student groups who had tried to
organize a boycott of the added tuition costs at registration.
Rector Roger Guindon was not in
his office to meet the group of 75
students, but soon arrived to insist
that they leave. Serge Lafortune, of
the Students Action Committee,
told Guindon they were demanding
that the university accept tuition
piayments at the previous term's
level, with no penalty for late payment.
The occupation soon ended
peacefully and unsuccessfully after
campus and Ottawa police threatened legal action and possible expulsion from the university if Guindon
decided to lay charges.
During the press conference,
Lafortune told reporters that SFUO
was "doing something even worse
than nothing" to deal with the tuition increase to $451 from $383.
The federation published a leaflet
asking students to not pay until Friday, Jan. 15, with the intent of
overloading the administration and
perhaps forcing a reaction, according to the SFUO president.
Claude Joncas urged students to
work with the administration instead of fighting it. The federation
had, in previous years, supported
tuition increase boycotts but now
calls the current attempt a "suicidal
Instead, the SFUO pamphlet
urges protest to be directed against
ithe federal and provincial governments.
"Someone has to do
something," Lafortune said. His
committee teamed up with social
science and arts unions in a boycott
drive which asked students to
withold the difference between the
new tuition and the old fee, a total
of $68. Of the 500 students Lafortune claimed had signed up to
boycott the extra fees, only 126 actually withheld the increase.
During the sit-in, the SFUO executive discussed a plea by
demonstrators for support, but
agreed only to take legal responsibility for the occupation if it remained peaceful.
"We disapprove of the action
because it was directly related to the
boycott, and the SFUO executive
and council are against the
boycott," said academic affairs
commissioner Bruno Boucher.
"They didn't ask us to do
anything in advance, and now they
want us to assume responsibility for
their action."
Will calls cuts
'very damaging'
What's a half million dollars between faculties?
Well, it's enough to upset arts
dean Robert Will, who said Thursday cutting $541,400 from arts will
be disasterous for the faculty.
Although he would not be specific
on where cuts would be made, he
called the proposal a "very, very
damaging retrenchment."
The president's advisory committee on financial retrenchment last
week recommended the cuts, which
represent 2.2 per cent of the
faculty's current budget.
"It's certainly a larger amount
than any other faculty," Will said.
"It looks as if we've been asked to
give up a disproportionate amount
of money. I perceive a less than enthusiastic support for arts, and I am
not happy."
"The thrust of the (retrenchment
committee's) report seems to be
away from arts and toward other
parts of the university. And the
reasoning and argument in the
report is not very ample."
Will said the blow to the quality
of education in arts will not at first
be apparent, "But we'll have to
do things less well. It certainly
won't be business as usual. There
will be very severe damage."
Earlier this year Will questioned
arts department heads about how
they would react to a 10 per cent
reduction in arts.
"But one shouldn't celebrate just
because it's less than 10 per cent,"
he said.
When asked if he would take
steps to counter the committee's
recommendations, Will said simply,
"I always do my job and I'll continue doing my job."
He said he must now address
himself to the issue of where cuts
can take place. He would not say
what departments were most likely
to get cut but, "it's my responsibility to make sure the resulting
damage is least. I could eliminate
your favorite course, but I won't."
Will also criticized a proposed
$564,000 cut in UBC's library
"The library traditionally is our
laboratory. That is also part of the
cost of retrenchment the faculty of
arts will have to bear."
Peter        Goddard, arts
undergraduate society executive
member, called the proposed cuts
damaging but stressed the entire
campus will be hurt.
"There's no hiding the fact the
cuts will damage the calibre of all
faculties," he said. "Although the
retrenchment report is well-
presented and well-reasoned, it contains a number of sugar coated
bullets for students."
"No matter how much praise and
recognition the faculty of arts is
given on paper, the cuts will still
hurt," he added.
Goddard criticized UBC's administration for even presenting the
retrenchment report.
"The administration has taken
the easiest route (in dealing with the
fiscal crisis) and has decided to
shrink within rather than go outside
to the public and government for
Students struck

From page 1
Student representatives were also
concerned about the retrenchment
committee's recommendations.
"If they implement the proposals, it will be the equivalent of
academic suicide," said James
Hollis, Alma Mater Society external
affairs officer. "The whole report is
just one big sham. It's just a hack
and slash report, and we have to denounce it," Hollis added.
"I'm going to speak to the board
on Jan. 26 and urge them to reject
the report and press for more
government funding," Hollis said.
"I'm going to point out that the fee
increase will put an inordinate
amount of pressure on a lot of
students, and that the extra bursaries are just sugar coating to make
it look more palatable," he said. Page 4

Write rights
"The public has a right to know!" A phrase dear to fictionalized
newsrooms, the "right to know" is a right which lately has been severely
abused in the local press, particularly in the Olson trial coverage and the
fnemoirs of one Margaret Sinclair Trudeau.
But the right to know is mysteriously forgotten when stories that are not
as clear cut as child murdering and random madness are covered. We are
talking about stories of harassment, political and sexual, that occur on our
street which are never mentioned outside of a small circle of friends.
Abuse of the "right to know" credo leads to a desensitizing of the reader
of the story covered, and can eventually create a reaction opposite to the
one desired. But ignoring the public's right to know, and letting state agencies or misguided individuals decide that it is better for people to have a
rapist or psychotic killer run loose among them instead of alerting them to
the danger can have just as serious effect — ignorance by force, instead of
The Ubyssey knows several rapes occur on campus each year, but
because the RCMP and campus security control the facts, the university
community cannot be alerted to the danger and prompted to take safety
Somewhere between forcing readers to choose ignorance and forcing
readers to live with ignorance is the middle ground all forms of journalism
should strive to attain. It is hard to define and harder to enforce, but until
readers react with sufficient force, there will continue to be the dynamic
swing between supersaturated and empty journalism.
You have a right to know — ensure it is exercised wisely.
Vote or die
Why pay your money and take your chances? Being a student at UBC is
tough enough already without having space cadets representing you on
senate and the board of governors. There is one, easy painless solution to
all this: vote. Polls are open today, and today only for all active (or reactive)
members of the AMS to take a stab at participatory democracy.
If you're not clear on what you're voting on, take another look at The
Ubyssey centrespread on Jan. 15. Then vote, or spoil your ballot. As they
say in New Hampshire, live free or die.
Fascists threaten 'death to commies' in rag
The Ubyssey has now printed a
death threat. In a letter (Jan. 8) entitled "Shoot Commies' an
anonymous student, though claiming not to be in favor of the Klan,
calls for all communists to be shot.
Translated, this is the fascist program of organized terror, not only
against communists, but against
labor, minorities, and the left, all
targets in a growing right-wing
climate. Printing this death threat
can only embolden these racist
creeps and is an immediate threat to
all those who are their intended victims.
On Jan. 6, at The Ubyssey staff
offices, 15 students, AUCE
members, minorities and members
of the Trotskyist League protested
The Ubyssey's printing of an interview with the chief of the Canadian
KKK. The protesters demanded
that The Ubyssey print a protest letter signed by over 130 people and
that they refuse to provide a platform for fascists in the future. Since
then several letters have appeared in
The Ubyssey, following the lead of
staffer Kevin McGee, accusing the
protesters of occupying the offices,
interrupting, and disrupting. This is
not true. Not only was the time arranged with The Ubyssey
beforehand, but a response from
the staff was repeatedly requested;
but the staff refused to take a position on the issue, or to discuss it
with the protesters.
Two days later they printed their
answer . . . the "Shoot Commies"
letter, with name withheld. This is a
continuing outrage — minimizing
the threat of fascists, while in effect
giving them room to grow. East Indians have been and continue to be
killed and beaten by these rightwing
terrorists. The Klan is now gaining
the confidence to act openly. In just
the last two weeks they
demonstrated in front of the CPC-
ML offices and beat up and
hospitalized a CPC-ML supporter.
Last week they attempted to attend,
but were rightfully excluded from a
meeting of Vancouver journalists to
discuss media coverage of racism.
Fascists are known strike breakers.
Who knows what this publicity will
embolden them to do during the upcoming teaching assistants union
In their spate of letters to The
Ubyssey, the liberals have ignored
the "Shoot Commies" death
threat, and have instead vented
their spleen on the communists.

that these liberals disagree with. By

"Let's all think of something dumb," Craig Brooks said, smoking yet another Rastafarian
mind expander." That sounds keen." bleeted Sandra Goodey, an obvious leftover of the Annette Funicello era, as are Bruce Campbell and Craig Yuill. "That sounds dumb," were the
words spoken in unison by Arnold Hestrom and Eric Eggertson, down and under chaps, who
are both graduates of the Sseyuby advanced course in realistic pessimism. Nancy Campbell
and Glen Sanford, who seemed to be on top of it all, agreed with Scott McDonald and Doug
Schmidt who refused to comment. "How can we bring this senseless masthead to an end?"

calling for their banishment, they
are really calling for denying communists the right to speak, which
means the denial of free speech for
any minority viewpoint. It is liberal
anti-communists making common
cause with growing anti-Soviet
hysteria. This is the same sort of
hysteria that in the 1950s saw the
liberals line up behind McCarthyite
witchhunts and red purges in the
unions, attacking all opposition as
communist and denying them their
rights. In the same way, liberals
echoing the hysteria of Canadian
imperialists in World War II, supported the internment of Japanese-
Canadians in B.C. Such attacks on
fundamental rights help lay the
groundwork for the growth of the
right-wing and its terrorist fringe.
When the KKK called The
Ubyssey saying they were going to
appear on campus, the staff had a
choice. They could have sounded
the alarm to all potential targets of
the KKK so that a mass demonstration of students, minorities and
labor could have been mobilized to
drive these scum off campus. In
stead they kept it a secret. As one
staffer put it, "How else could we
get the interview." The result —
some fascist creep has now issued
an open death threat. And The
Ubyssey prints it. The liberals on
The Ubyssey are more concerned
with muzzling communists than opposing the fascists, and have,
thereby, in effect, given the KKK
more room to grow.

Stay home
Teaching assistants are both
students and underpaid colleagues
of the faculty.
During a strike there is no neutral
position, no middle ground. By
crossing a picket line you support
the management (in this case the
UBC administration). By respecting
a picket line you support striking
employees, (in this case TAs).
During past strikes at UBC many
faculty members and students
crossed the line, claiming that labor
relations at UBC did not concern
them. But by crossing the lines, they
took a side, ahd helped to weaken
the strikes.
This time appears to be different.
The TA Union is picketing the
entire campus. The thousands of
unionized employees will not cross,
and will lose a day's pay. This will
effectively shut down the university. Many faculty members are
cancelling classes and will lose their
pay. Several student organizations
have supported the strike by asking
students to stay home.
Students and faculty, that's all
you have to do. Stay home on Jan.
Robin Visel,
We would like to thank those
who devoted time to the various
events, the clubs and campus
groups which endorsed the week,
and the groups and individuals who
donated money. (Those students
who turned up at the events can applaud themselves.)
The campus response, we are
happy to say, was more than satisfying. For example, we raised about
$400 for the Salvadorean Student
Union from collections taken during the day that the Salvadorean
students spoke in SUB auditorium.
Two undergraduate societies, education and arts, and the law students union together donated over
$500 to be spent on goods like medical supplies to help the reconstruction efforts in Nicaragua.
Special mention should be made
of the arts undergraduate society
for not only contributing to the
Nicaragua project but donating the
proceeds of one of their bear gardens to LASC. That's support.
Special thanks also goes to The
Ubyssey staff for their special features on Central America and their
coverage of the week.
Whether mentioned by name or
not, all those who helped us, LASC
thanks you.

KKK coverage misses point
"The Real issue" according to
Glen Sanford (author of interview
with Klan leader,) is that "the KKK
is on campus". But in fact the real
issue concerns journalism. How
journalists should give news
coverage to organizations, such as
the KKK, which are destructive to
the well-being of our democratic
Certainly, it is necessary to do
what Sanford tried to do in his interview informing UBC students of
the KKK existence on campus. But
good journalism is not simply an
exercise of revealing information, it
should also make conscious citizens
out of people so that society can be
benefited. Sanford's interview fails
to do that.
He was reporting all right, but
without merits. In fact his interview
tends to help the Klan leader's appeal to people who are ignorant of
the KKK history and what it really
stands for. In his letter to The
Ubyssey (Jan. 15), Sanford wants
our sympathy as a reporter who,
restrained by his professionalism,
kept his personal feelings out of the
interview. But I think we would
prefer to applaud rather to sympathise with him.

Reflection on Christian fundamentalism
Everywhere fundamentalist
Christians are crying out to the
world that they have found the answers to the basic issues of life.
Fundamentalists are found in every
religion, but typically they are certain that their beliefs are non-negotiable revealed truth. I am writing
about my experiences in Christian
fundamentalism, and why I got
I was an insecure teenager when I
was dramatically converted 10 years
ago. My life quickly became
smoother, and my personal problems seemed to recede into the
background. I felt great joy initially, and as I settled down, I became
increasingly certain of God, my
place in the world, and my beliefs.
It was only much later that I began to feel troubled about the real
nature of my salvation. In fact, I
had not come to peace with myself.
Fundamentalism gave me a whole
set of spiritual concerns, and prescribed for me methods for dealing
with them, so that I faced well-de-

fined, tractable problems, and did
not learn to make sense for myself
out of a confusing world.
Many fundamentalists speak of
letting Christ control and guide
your life, and the peace that this brings. Control there is, but I cannot
identify the controlling force as
Christ. Church, Christian books,
and mostly conversations with my
Christian friends helped maintain a
direction in life.
Unfortunately, I did not learn to
manage my own life without these
supports to manipulate my emotions. I did not learn to take decisions on my own responsibility. I
gradually fell into saying "This was
the Lord's will" rather than "These
were the consequences of my own
actions." I was taught to take the
events of my life as the dispensations of God's inscrutable will, rather than to attempt to change
things myself.
It seemed, that, after conversion,
my relationships with other people
were much improved. I now think
that this was due to the fact that I
had learned the unspoken conventions governing the interaction between believers, and these conventions provided a safe, non-threatening way to be with people. However
I did not learn how to deal with the
stresses of normal relationships
with people who had nothing external binding them to me. The
more I avoided confronting these
stresses, the more insurmountable
they became, and the easier it became to stay cloistered.
Like many fundamentalists,
though not all, I found myself more
guilty than before. I was always
aware of not measuring up. Fundamentalist thinking would not allow
me to confront this problem because I was supposed to believe it
hadalready been solved. Evangelists
will tell you that dealing with the
guilt is what it's all about, but for
some people I knew, conversion
opened the way to a lifetime of it.
It may have been the incongruence between what I was told was
happening in my Christian life and
what was actually going on that
opened my mind to some of the intellectual inconsistencies in fundamentalist belief.
The first crack in the monolith of
belief came from the Bible. I had
mastered Greek and Hebrew, studied early church history, and examined the Bible intensely, in my attempt to understand.
I was already troubled by the variety of different fundamentalist beliefs, each claiming to be the sole
truth. In the New Testament I
found other belief systems, which
were again quite different from
anything today. For example, one
central idea of modern fundamentalism, "a personal relationship with
Jesus Christ." I simply could not
find in the New Testament. On the
other hand, the idea of the messianic kingdom, so important to the
apostles, was reduced to a sideshow
about the fulfillment of Old Testament prophecies by fundamentalists
1'Women know pill hazards'
Though 1 have been at UBC for
three years and have faithfully read
each copy of The Ubyssey, it has
rarely been my misfortune to read
such a selection of illogical and in
valid statements and assumptions
as were presented by Lorna Zaback
in her article Pill Not Healthy.
To begin with, Miss Zaback
states that (if I may paraphrase)
"despite hundreds of studies
associating increased estrogen with
dangerous side effects, women continue to take the pill." Well now,
Miss Zaback I hardly think some
researcher forced the pill down
these womens mouths.
If they took the pill while being
aware of the dangers that again is
their fault, for you state quite clearly that the studies were in fact
published. It is clearly the woman's
responsibility to find out as much
as is known about a drug before using it.
Going on, you say that "many
studies, some of which are financed
by drug companies, are attempting
to convince women that the pill is
not only safe but beneficial." It is
not too hard to see that you are
assuming that any study financed
by a drug company is automatically
biased and that any conclusions
drawn from such a study are false.
While I would be the first to admit that some companies have and
do publish false reports, surly you
do not think every study financed
by a drug company is so. It is in the
company's own interest to come up
with a valid and testable study
which indicates a safe and effective
product, for then they will sell more
of their  product  than otherwise.
Thirdly, you say, "clearly it is
drug companies who profit from
such 'scientific' selling of the pill.
Women do not benefit from taking
drugs known to be dangerous, nor
do we benefit by donating our
bodies to research." Miss Zaback, I
hardly know where to begin. Yes it
is true that drug companies profit
by selling the pill, but women profit
by the companies selling of it.
You would hardly expect the
companies to sell the pill without a
profit yet you are surprised that this
is so. Further, if they did not produce the pill when the technology
was available you would say they
were indulging in sexual exploitation and repression.
The drug companies only profit
from research if more women use
the pill after the research than
before, and, (assuming women to
behave in a rational way), this will
only happen if the research brings
about a safer more effective product. If the emphasis is on
'benefit', then again you are
wrong, for while the particular
women who participate in the study
may get sick, the greater good will
go to the majority of women, who
will then have additional information upon which to base a rational
decision. And let us not forget the
key words; donate; volunteer; participate.
These words are quite clear in
their meaning. They state that the
women in the study were there of
their own free will. What garbage
to suggest, even for a second, that
Dr Percival-Smith is indulging in
exploitation of these women. If Dr.
Percival-Smith advertises for 25
women, and they all show up, why.
yell at the good doctor? I suggest
you turn your anger elsewhere.
Lastly, you state, "we do need
more money for research." and
"men should be more involved with
birth control." Well, where is the
money to come from? On the one
hand you ridicule any study financed by a drug company yet on the
other hand you look around saying,
"please sir, I want some more."
You can't have it both ways. As for
men getting more involved, again I
am sure of the intended meaning.
In the final analysis Miss 2'.aback,
you can't have your cake and eat
too. Either take the pill and shut
up, or don't take the pill and try to
get the men in your life, the drug
companies, and other women to
listen to you. Since many women
choose the former, you clearly do
not speak for all women.

I found that support for all of the
major concepts that we believed
had to come from proof texts,
drawn from the interpreters of
Christ. The words of Jesus himself
made me wonder if he was talking
about the same thing as we were.
It began to seem unsettling to me
that we believers consistently saw
the intervention of God in such ser-
endipities as finding an apartment
in a desirable low vacancy area, receiving an unexpected gift of money
in time of need, or finally solving
some long-standing personal problem.
I saw that such things happened
in the lives of non-believers as well,
but that they didn't think that God
had done it. It was cause for reflection as well, that God was supposedly adjusting the universe to meet
some of our small needs, while ignoring the dire suffering of millions. Could God really be like that?
A crucial event was the conversion of one of my friends to the
Baha'i faith. Her life changed radically. Of course, I tried to convince
her that her belief was a deception,
but if she had called herself Christian I would have said that she had
"been saved." I found that people
of other religions had experiences,
and attitudes, that were comparable
to what I had been taught was the
only true way. My friend could tell
me of changed lives, miraculous answers to prayer and deep commitment to God, within the Bahai'i religion. It requires great conviction,
or tunnel vision, to avoid wondering about that.
My biggest stumbling block, in
my restlessness within fundamentalism, was fear of the wrath of God. I
hesitated to let go of the security,
the certainty and the control I felt I
But worse, I had been taught that
these were the work of God. If I
left, I would not only have to face
life on my own, but I would be condemning myself to the judgment of
God. Fellow believers were very
compassionate about my "spiritual
difficulties." This was a very effective strategy on their part, which
kept me from addressing the real issues for myself.
It took me a long time before I
found the courage to face life without that on which I had come to depend, and to risk damning my soul,
in order to save my sanity. Now I
feel very angry with fundamentalism for eroding my confidence in
my own feelings and perceptions,
for telling me that spiritual reality
was a fearful, yet petty, surrogate
parent, and that the manipulation
of people was the work of the Spirit
of God.
I am especially angry that these
people convinced me that they were
loving me, and offering me friendship, when they were weakening my
ability to function as a human being, and in fact they needed my belief to help bolster their own.
Now I am glad to be out, though
it is fraught with uncertainty. My
thanks go to my friends and one
very special lady.

Mike Blondal finished first and second respectivly in the 100m butterfly. Both Kent and Blondal made
Canadian Intercollegiate Athletics
Union qualifying times, allowing
them to compete in the national
championships in March.
In the women's competition,
UBC finished with 67 points to 60
for Alberta. Team captain Karen
Van Sacker led the women with first
place finishes in the 200m
breaststroke and 200m individual
medley. Van Sacker qualified for
the nationals in both races.
In the men's diving competition,
team captain Alan Hay dominated
the boards with first place finishes
in both the one and three metre
events. In the women's competition, Nancy Bonham finished on
top in the one metre competition.
In the three metre event, Kim
Cassar-Torreggiani came in second,
with Bonham taking third place.
'Birds coach Jack Kelso was
pleased with his teams' performance in Edmonton. "We knew we
would have a tough meet, especially
in the men's division, but the men
swam well and pulled out the win,"
he said. Kelso pointed out that
Allan Kay won the meet for the
men, with his wins in the one and
three metre events, as his swimmmg
and diving scores were combined
for the overall point total.
Although Calgary was missing
Graham Smith, it still downed the
'Birds 95-18. Kevin Stapelton was
the only UBC swimmer to win an
event in the men's division, making
the CIAU qualifying time in the
200m freestyle.
In the women's division, UBC

to 56. Van Sacker again was a
bright spot for the 'Birds, winning
the 200m breaststroke. In the one
metre diving event, UBC finished
ojje, two, three, with Bonham taking first place followed by Cassar-
Torreggiani and Andrea Bakker.
In the three metre competition,

Chimos beat UBC v'ballers
The UBC women's volleyball
team should stop inviting the
Chimos Red Lions to its tournaments. The Red Lions won
UBC's fall tournament and on
Saturday in War Memorial gym
took the Thunderette Spring Invitational as well.
For UBC the results from the
tournament were mixed. The
women won three games, lost two
and placed fifth. The high note was
that UBC downed the University of
Victoria   for   the   first   time   this
UBC coach Sandy Silver said this
is a positive point for her team going into the third Canada West
tournament. UBC must beat both
UVic and Calgary (the two teams
ahead of it) if it is to have any
chance of finishing in the top and
only playoff spot. There are five
tournaments comprising the season
and the last one is at UBC February
26, 27.
While Silver said she was not
pleased with the overall finish she
added she was happy with the play
of her rookies. Because of injuries
Alana Kurz and Moira Shaunessy
started for the first time and played
well; in addition Kelly Meechan
took over the setting position.
Silver said Meechan played very
strongly in that important role.
UBC is leaving for Dalhousie
University Jan. 21 to compete in the
Dalhousie Classic. Eight of the top

Canada will be competing in the
tournment. UBC is currently ranked seventh.
WE TOLD YOU there was a men's field lacross team. It is not our fault
players dress like class of '57. Team is composed of law students led by
Virg Engel. You may think this is not the truth because the athletic department does not mention the team. The athletic department is trying to cut
out the team so it can divert the extra money to the baseball team. Really,
have I ever lied to you before?
'Birds bust again
Bird droppings
Consistency is something an
athlete aims for. If a UBC basketball player was aiming for it, he
would reach it part of the time, and
miss it totally the other.
The 'Birds are in Leghbridge, it is
halftime and UBC is leading the
University of Lethbridge in a
Canada West league game after
shooting 56 per cent. In the second
half that percentage is 30 and UBC
loses 83-72.
At least UBC had a good half in
that Saturday game. On Friday
night the 'Birds shot 35 per cent and
lost 91-77. Lethbridge's Al Chappie
was the man who did the most
damage as he hit for 34 points.
UBC was led by Pat West with 24
points, Bob Forsyth with 23 and
Jamie Boyle with 17. Despite the
high number of points, Forsyth and
Boyle both shot badly. The next
night Forsyth had 19 points and
Boyle 18 as they both shot a very
high 50 per cent.
For West it was the exact opposite. He went from 61 per cent to
The 'Birds are now 1-7 in league
play which leaves them seven games
behind the University of Victoria in
first place. The Vikings will be impossible to catch as may be
Lethbridge at 5-3 in second place
unless UBC turns things around
when the University of Alberta
visits War Memorial this weekend.
Gymnasts team to watch
Every time the women's gymnastic team competes, it becomes more apparent that it is the team to watch in Canadian college gymnastics.
On Friday at UBC's Osborne Centre UBC, with 115.60 points, defeated
the University of Alberta (109.45 points) and the University of Calgary
(51.90 points).
UBC was led once again by Patti Sakaki, who captured individual
honors with 31.34 points. UBC's Lani Wong was third with 27.7 points.
UBC next competes in Boise Idaho against Boise State University on
Jan. 30.
Maybe the light at the end of the
tunnel is not an oncoming train.
The UBC men's hockey team took
a 1-9 Canada West league record into Calgary and emerged with a split
of its weekend games with the
University of Calgary.
The Dinosaurs, sixth ranked in
Canada, took two games off the
'Birds last weekend.
Saturday UBC upset Calgary 4-2
behind the scoring touch of Bill
Holowaty. Holowaty had two goals
and one assist. The other UBC goal
scorers were Ted Cotter and Tom
On Sunday the 'Birds were tied
4-4 going into the final period when
another defensive let-down enabled
Calgary to score three unanswered
goals for the win.
Ron Paterson was in goal for
the win and stopped 28 shots while
Ian McEachern was in the pipes on
Holowaty, Ouchi, Jim Allison,
and Ted Hunt were the goal scorers
in the second game.
Holowaty's four points give him
17 for the season, putting him in the
top five in league scoring.
Guess what? UBC has a track
and field team — a good one too. It
was down in Seattle on Sunday to
compete against the University of
Washington in an indoor meet, and
showed promise for the coming
In the men's 880, UBC's Simon
Hoogewerf, Ian Gillespie and Jason
Gray took the top three spots.
Hoogewerf's winning time was 1
min. 52.3 seconds. Bob Dalton
outsprinted his U of W opposition
in 60 yard sprint and Warren Lee
won the 60 yard hurdles race.
UBC also got strong performances from Greg Bardakian and
Trevor Charles in the triple jump,
Gavin Smart in the 440, Joanna
Phillips in the women's 440 and
Rob Cameron in the men's two
The men's mile relay team, consisting of Hoogerwerf, Gillespie,
Gray and Ward Francis easily

UBC's Sara Niel won the
women's division of the Lion's

Saturday. Neil's time was 27:56.
The men's rugby team started out
the post-holiday portion of its
schedule on the wrong note Saturday at Thunderbird Stadium when
it dropped a Vancouver Rugby
Union match 11-0 to the Vancouver
Rowing club.
The weather and field conditions
had an effect on the game. UBC is a
quick team that is good at handling
the ball. With the cold weather and
soggy field UBC was never able to
really play its type of game. The
conditions suited the bigger Rowing
UBC team captain Robin Russell
said that even with these problems
the 'Birds still had opportunities to
score but could not finish.
The Rowing club scored a penalty
and a try in the first half, both of
which were against the flow of play.
The other points came from
another try late in the game.
