Friday, March 20,1981 UBC's funding
trend is
research, but
it may be a
Today's pure research is tomorrow's applied science. But UBC's research grant
structure doesn't reflect this, say some UBC
"There is a trend in all areas towards
strategic and applied grants," according to
Richard St rat ley, UBC's research administrator. "The granting agencies have recognized
the universities as a valuable resource in
terms of brain power for solving our problems."
But is increasing strategic and applied research grants the way to solve them? David
Suzuki, broadcaster and zoology genetic professor says he disagrees. "You can't plan for
discoveries in a straightforward way," he
said. "You can't go from A to B to C to
D . . . often discoveries made in a totally
unrelated area can suddenly be seen to have
an application. I believe they should support
outstanding people, regardless of their area."
'You can't plan for
discoveries in a
straightforward way'
The laser was discovered through such basic research, says Jim Trotter, acting chemistry head. "The whole pharmaceutical industry came from basic research work," he
adds. "Penicillin was discovered from a
mould in the lab . . . there is a limit to the
amount of applied research we can do."
Trotter says in chemistry, which was the
most heavily funded natural science department in 1979-80, there is a tendency to move
over to the applied. "We shouldn't go too
far," he says. "The strategic grants encourage scientists to slant their work to a specific
The average grant size per faculty member
in chemistry was almost $40,000 in 1979-80,
according to statistics from research administration. However, the chemistry department
spends a lot on expensive equipment, Trotter
The main applied research in chemistry is
in coal liquefaction, synthesizing insect pher-
omenes and anti-cancer agents for use in testing at drug companies. Pheromones are small
molecules released by insects to attract mates.
The artificial pheromones could be released
over areas troubled by insect pests such as the
spruce budworm to confuse them at mating
time and prevent them from breeding.
Most of chemistry's basic research is in
areas which examine the metallic components
of biological molecules — like iron found in
hemoglobin — and in chemical physics, using
the tools of physics to solve chemical prob
lems, says Trotter. By shooting atoms with
various types of light waves, the parts of the
atoms resonate and this can give information
about the atom's structure. This is a big area
in chemistry at UBC, called nuclear magnetic
resonance. There is also a large group of organic chemists, says Trotter.
This type of research does not always have
obvious applicable spinoffs.
Oceanography has a different story. "All
our work will have some application — it is
all related to B.C. coastal waters in one way
or another," says Ron Burling, assistant
head. "Any environmental research, such as
oceanography or ecology, has obvious applications."
"But it is not always known to be applicable when it is done," says Steve Calvert,
head of oceanography. "The physics of
waves was studied by academics 20 years ago
because they were curious. Now, with offshore drilling, industry suddenly needs to
know more about waves . . . how often do
you get a big wave?"
It is easier to see how studying waves could
lead to building better structures at sea. It is
therefore easier to justify supporting oceanography. It is not so easy to see how studying
the salivary gland of a fruit fly could lead scientists to an understanding of the gene, or
how bombarding a thin sheet of gold with
alpha particles can lead to the discovery of
the nucleus.
Says Calvert: "We should support the
good people, it isn't easy to judge the final
value of their work while it's being done.
There is a danger of strictly applied research
going too far.
"Basic science is a cultural activity that any
society should be prepared to support," he
Dr. John Dirks, head of the department of
'Basic science is a cultural
activity that any society
should be prepared to
medicine, the most heavily funded department overall, thinks that the recent surge of
interest in applied research will not push
basic research out of the way. "I think there
will be a buildup side by side of basic and applied research," he comments.
"I think people have recognized that advances in medicine are made through scientific research. They have a greater awareness of
themselves and their illnesses and afflictions.
The public has become more knowledgeable
and interested in science in the last few
years," says Dirks.

He says that applied and basic research are
very closely linked. "A recent study has
shown that discoveries in the area of heart disease are about 50-50 between applied and
basic research."
In Dirks' scenario the applied researcher
takes the laws found by basic researchers and
applies them to their particular problem.
Suppose a patient has a kidney stone. The applied researcher looks at what factors are responsible for the stone and finds they are in
the urine. The researcher will then look at the
urine and find a high calcium content. By using certain drugs, he can change the calcium
levels and reduce the frequency of kidney
stones.  In this way the researcher takes
TROTTER . . . 'limits to applied research'
knowledge from basic science and makes use
of it, according to Dirks.
Discoveries in applied research are no less
exciting, he says. "Look at the polio vaccine
— thousands of lives have been saved. That's
pretty exciting success."
Dirk hopes the money raised by Terry Fox
will be used for a parallel development of applied and basic research.
"We must make room for people with
novel ideas," he says. "But it is important to
have people from applied research to identify
the applicable ideas from basic."
Asked whether he thought the cure would
come from basic or applied research, he says,
"I guess you never know."
We have to be careful. We have to be careful that in our rush to cure cancer, build better stereos and find new energy sources we
don't neglect our core of basic researchers.
Applied research depends on basic research.
So does Canada's ability to stay at the forefront of science. And so does much of our intellectual creativity.
More funds are needed. The costs for lab
equipment are rising faster than the rate of
inflation and research is becoming more and
more expensive as universities scramble to offer new professors wages equal to those offered by private companies.
Without these desperately needed funds,
all research will grind to a thundering halt.

Page 3 Director ponders future of film
Donald Brittain, one of Canada's best
known and respected filmmakers, visited
UBC last week as a guest of the theatre
department and as the film and television
studies program's artist in residence. Brittain
is best known for his National Film Board
documentaries to which he lends his own
distinctive style and flair. He is currently
working on a film dealing with the postwar
Igor Gouzenko spy case and RCMP 'dirty
tricks'. He spoke with Steve McClure and
Shaffin Sharriff this week in the august confines of Brock Hall about the Canadian film
industry and the action-packed life of the
documentary filmmaker.
How did you get started as a filmmaker?
You were a reporter first . . .
By accident. In those days, and I'm going
back to the beginning of time here, there
were no film schools in this country and there
were only a couple of journalism schools. I
was working at the Ottawa Journal and I
quit. I decided I was going to Europe; I was
obsessed with going to Europe. I was then 26
years of age. I was trying to bum my way
around in Mexico. I was waiting to get a free
ride to Europe because I didn't have any
money* The air force used to fly you to
Europe if you wrote a nice story about
NATO. Somebody from the film board who
knew me called up to say they were looking
for a newspaper man to go on for six weeks in
Newfoundland; they thought newspaper men
were filled with ingenuity and this was a very
'I think the Canadian
film industry is
a disgrace
at the moment'
small crew so they thought they could get
somebody who could do everything.
So I signed up, I needed the money, and
I'd never been to Newfoundland. One thing
led to another. I worked with them for six
weeks, which turned out to be three months.
So they thought I could write; that was sort
of a training program for me. I'd been out as
an assistant cameraman, assistant editor,
assistant director, assistant everything. And
that was a very good way to learn the
Anyway, I went to Europe for six months,
North Africa, and I bummed around there,
and then I got myself a job on Fleet Street.
Then I wrote to the film board and said, if
you've got a job for me in Canada, I'm coming back, otherwise, I'm staying here. They
actually sent me a cable, which impressed me.
So I took a boat, borrowed some money
and went to Ottawa, and they'd changed
their mind; they'd decided they were
overstaffed and couldn't use me. I was ready
to kill. I went to the director of production,
who had a big office, a little like Louis B.
Mayer's, and I raised hell. 'Not only do I
want a job, I want a raise.' He was paying me
$65 a week; I said I wanted $70 a week. He
was sort of impressed with that and took me
back on, and I'm still in the business.
I've thought from time to time to get back
in the newspaper business. I really envy ydu
people who go around with a piece of paper
in your pocket and a tape recorder to get
your story. I get depressed with the amount
of equipment a film crew has to carry
The sort of the backhanded way you got
into the film business: Do you think that's
possible nowadays, given you had a lack of
technical expertise?
No, I don't. It's very unusual. I mean it
does happen. The idea for the Malcolm
Lowry film I did, Volcano, came to me from
Bob Duncan, a guy who was not in the
business at all and came into the business as a
result of it. He came with the idea, and I
hired him on. I stole his idea, and then hired
him on as an assistant everything. He's now
writing, directing, producing. But now it's
much more difficult. In the first place I don't
think the film board particularly is a very
good place to go for a young guy. It's a terrible place for training.
It's one of the most luxurious places in the
world to work and you can't get conditions
that are any more ideal. There is no commer
cial pressure, there is no time pressure, there
is good equipment, and good technical people Unfortunately, an awful lot of people at
the film board who came into it and have
been there for 20 years don't know anything
else that goes on in the world, and they're
spoiled blind in that situation. And some of
them aren't that good either. A film takes so
long to make at the film board that I really
think it's a depressing place to go if you're
just coming up (as a filmmaker) out of, say, a
film school. It takes a long time for things to
move. (On the other hand) if you're working
for a private outfit, you're doing all types of
things. You just pick up knowledge much
quicker, and I think the film board should
only be hiring people who've done something
in the outside world and can really appreciate
the conditions under which they've worked.
Actually, I don't think they should have
anybody on staff; they should all freelance.
People should come with their ideas and get a
shot at making a film.
Do you prefer documentary film to
dramatic film, or fictional film?
I think documentary is harder. I find
dramatic film is quicker, easier, it's not near-
ration in the final moment of the final mix. If
you hire an actor to read your stuff, you
can't do that. Anything that can retain the
flexibility and the spontaneity of the process
is a great benefit because unlike, say, writing
a feature story for a magazine, which may
take three weeks or a month, this process can
go on for a year. Even the fastest documentaries I've ever made have taken four or five
months. It's a long, long process, and if
you're going to get bored making it, it's going to show.
When you did the Lowry film, what sort of
co-operation did you get from his friends and
We got a lot of co-operation. The first cooperation we had to get was from Mrs.
Lowry. She had the reputation of being very
difficult. So Duncan, they guy who brought
me the idea in the first place, a very charming
Scotsman, went to see Mrs. Lowry. The only
problem was that she didn't have the rights to
the one book we wanted, which was Under
the Volcano. It had been sold to a movie
company in Mexico. So then we had to go
and negotiate with them. In the end, we got
the rights to use 20 minutes from the book;
BRITTAIN . . . 'there are a
ly as personal. I find the documentary is a
much more personal thing and it's more difficult because you've got to really entertain
an audience with a documentary. Documentary is a real dirty word for a lot of people,
it's instant boredom. They're trying to think
new names for it. Somebody tried "direct
cinema" I don't think it's going to catch on.
If you really want information, you should
read a book. I mean there is very little information in film. It's a very expensive way of
dispensing information.
Film for me is a very emotional medium;
you're dealing with emotions, and you're
dealing with drama and you're dealing entertainment — you've got to hold the audience's
attention. This may not apply to, say, an instructional film, but it certainly applies to
anything that's pertaining to television and
my films are on television because I think
that's where the people are.
So you've got to take a subject which may
not even be inherently dramatic and you've
got to make people laugh and cry with that,
and that's a very tough thing to do.
A lot of people recognize your voice instantly. When they see an NFB film, there is
that familiar voice which takes on this tone
. . . And a lot of people groan . . .
However, the CBC seems to like it so I have
to keep reading my own stuff. That's the advantage — I keep flexible. I can change nar-
lot of fly-by-night operators'
we couldn't dramatize it, which we didn't
want to do anyway. The peculiar thing about
Lowry was he didn't retain his friends. Very
few people stayed friendly with him.
The sweat in that film was editing. It was a
very difficult film to make, perhaps the most
difficult film I've worked on. With Lowry,
everything was going on inside and we had to
show that.
The syphilis shot in the film . . .
Originally, we had a bit of hardcore porn
in it. I cut in a very brief little business of a
penis entering a vagina in closeup. It didn't
work; it was gratuitously sensational, you
have to be careful. You can't go for cheap
sensationalism. As far as the syphilis thing is
concerned, it really had a profound effect on
Lowry, and we wanted it to have a profound
effect on the audience.
I was screening the film in London for
Richard Burton to try to convince him to do
the voice-overs and I didn't have any money
to pay him. He didn't show up for a week
and I was going broke. Anyway, he brought
two little old ladies with him — his sister-in-
law and her friend, I later found out. I had to
explain in advance that there was something
revolting in the film. They giggled after seeing the film. It went down well. Burton liked
it, so he did it.
What sort of relationahips do you have
with your subjects? Lord Thompson, for ex
ample. Situations where you have to work
with live subjects . . .
I keep a great deal of distance between
myself and the subject. In the case of
Thompson, I hid so much in the background,
he didn't know I was directing the film
(Never a Backward Step). I stay back; I find I
function better that way. The other people do
the research and feed into me. I lose my objectivity the other way. I want to be the
observer, not the participant. I may be the
only (documentary) filmmaker who does
What sort of reaction did you get from
Lord Thompson with Never a Backward
I had the unenviable job of presenting
him with a courtesy print. He said, 'Well, I
wouldn't want to be remembered by that
film. You really made me look like a bit of a
clown.' That was Thompson. We didn't mess
around in the editing to make him look
ridiculous; that was the character and we got
him exactly right, but that's not the way he
thought of himself.
But-he was very good about it. He asked
for footage we didn't use. There is probably
an editor in London recutting that stuff.
Do you think documentary filmmakers
should approach items of current interest?
Because emotions may still run high and
cloud people's judgement . . .
Yeah, for sure. For example, when I made
a film about Levesque and Trudeau (The
Champions), I made a point of not getting involved with either Trudeau or Levesque. The
film turned out to be rather pro-Levesque
than pro-Trudeau. When I met Trudeau
some time after the film was made, I thought
he was going to shit all over me, but he said
he liked it. I was very disappointed.
Do you think there is such a thing as a
distinctive Canadian style? For example, people say you use a very ironical voice narration.
Yes. Whatever style I've got, I picked it up
from old NFB stuff and CBC radio dramas. I
know there are people in New York who
always recognize a Canadian short. And the
well-done Canadian film is a delight.
But I don't deliberately try to be low-key.
Once I made a pitch for a film to some people
at the New York stock exchange and I gave
them a very hard pitch. They voted behind
closed doors and the reason I got the project
was that they liked my "low-key, soft-sell approach." I thought I was giving them the
hardest sell I'd ever given. So I guess it's sort
of a natural Canadian characteristic.
Do you think that Canadian film is in
danger right now, particularly with America-
style commercial Canadian Film Development Corporation-sponsored films?
Yes, I think the Canadian film industry is a
disgrace at the moment. By and large, it's a
totally producer-oriented industry. There are
two, or three, or four good producers but
there are a lot of fly-by-night operators. They
don't have an original thought in their heads,
doing a slavish imitation of what Hollywood
thinks is marketable at the moment. And
they'e producing an enormous pile of junk.
Do you think that if something is not done
quickly, we might find ourselves in the same
situation that you discussed in Dreamland
(Early History of Canadian Movies), with
monopolies and American control of the film
Yes, I think there's a great danger of it.
There seems to be some improvement, maybe
two or three decent films, but I haven't seen
anything I could say is good with the exception of a Quebecois film.
I went to the Canadian film awards a few
yeas ago. I refuse to ever go there again. If I
win a prize, somebody else can pick it up
because of the people that gathered there,
half of them should've been in jail. There
were a lot of dentists and doctors, with their
tax-shelter money. And there were a lot of
cheap operators. I found it very depressing.
I'm not damning the entire industry
because there are some good people. But at
the moment, the others are in the ascendancy
and the product they're putting out is, I find,
What about the Quebec film industry?
It's a depressing but true fact that theatre
owners don't like to run subtitled films. It's a
language situation, and it's really hurt the
Quebec filmmakers because the industry was
really bursting at the seams around 1970.
Their film distribution is severely limited.
The fact is, just as Bergman doesn't sell too
many tickets in Sweden, some of the good
films don't sell too many tickets in Quebec

Friday, March 20, 1981 Soviet
Revolution that does not allow
for the emancipation of women is
a fallacy. It is one of a number of
such fallacies that currently persist
in the Soviet Union.
There women continue to face
oppression but they are divided.
According to a recent article in
Canadian Forum the Soviet
women form two groups; there is
a small group of university
educated women and there is the
mass of unskilled workers who
face a lifetime of menial drudgery
in the home and factory.
Abortion is a difficulty for
these women and coupled with a
failure to manufacture and advertise contraceptives they are forced
into unwanted pregnancies which
prevents factory managers from
training and promoting them.
They are locked into dead-end
lives and cries of outrage have and
continued to be stifled by the notoriously efficient KGB. But they
have refused to be silent any
longer and recently a group of
women in Leningrad felt compelled to come together in unofficial
feminist   groupings,   to   bridge
these gaps and appeal to women
on common grounds.
In 1968 Tatyana Mamonova, a
then Soviet resident, called the
KGB and "rather naively" had a
conversation. She recommended
giving the Czechoslovakian people
their freedom and suggested that a
feminist journal be published.
Mamonova was at UBC last Friday and spoke to 175 people in
Buch. 202 through an interpreter.
"The KGB works very well. In
1979 the first Almanach (a
clandestine feminist journal) came
out. I was not yet involved in that
issue. The KGB came to me and
said 'you have been thinking
about this since 1968. That's why
we caught you first ... I myself
had forgotten about it,"
Mamonova said.
Mamonova was one of three
editors of Almanach which was
first published in December and
no sooner had the first hand-typed
copies been secretly distributed in
Leningrad than the KGB was
knocking on her door. She and
the three other editors were given
24 hours to leave the country or
face imprisonment; when she
chose exile she was stripped of her
Said Mamonova: "Usually the
KGB does not like the attention of
the world focused on it. They
knew that if I was sent to a prison
camp, there would be a great
uproar." She added that the KGB
hoped that by exiling her, the
feminist movement in the Soviet
Union would end.
But she has continued to edit
Almanach from her Paris home
and continues to work, building
the movement within the Soviet
Union, by telling the world about
She described the typical day of
a Russian woman. She rises early,
makes breakfast for her husband
and child, and if there's time, for
herself. She takes her children to
daycare in a crowded bus, "where
she is lucky not to have all her buttons ripped off and her legs crush*
"After work, a woman goes to
the store and stands in a long
queue. As a rule, only women
stand in queues. The only queues
where you find men are in lineups
for the liquor store."
She adds that men can't be expected to pick up children from
daycare. "They're with friends
drinking vodka which enables
them to feel like true men."
All available resources which
could go into facilities such as
daycare are used to fuel the arms
race, she said. The feminist movement in the Soviet Union is a
movement with mass appeal
which is trying to bridge the gaps
created by the bureaucracy.
"My own particular views are
not tied to one particular
ideology. Our movement is a mass
movement. That is why our
Almanach is for women of all
classes, all beliefs, all ages, all nationalities."
Most of the women in the
Leningrad collective, were converted Roman Catholics but
Mamonova said she believes that
the religious movement is "narrow and elitist." But she added it
must be seen as a reaction to the
totalitarian regime in Russia.
"Religion is a moderate method
of protesting existing conditions
in the Soviet Union."
In a recent article by Linda
Grand, a member of the Mamonova tour, she claims the women
who have turned to the Church
have elaborated a Virgin Mary
cult which puts an emphasis on
chastity. Mamonova was quoted
as saying 90 per cent of the women
believed that the issues would be
resolved automatically.
"Women throughout the world
are realizing that a socialist system
has been done by men. Would it
not now be time for women to
take it into their hands?"
MAMONOVA . . . women still suffering at Soviet hands
in the Soviet Union are not
religious and they know the
church cannot help them.
"The only way of protest in
Russia is a protest based on the
left. Our state says it is socialist, in
fact it is a right-wing, conservative
state," she said at UBC.
"There was a belief that after
the socialist revolution, questions
of feminism would automatically
resolve themselves. I would not
like our women to fall for that
She added that an analogous
situation exists here when women
working within leftist movements
during the 1960s realized that
these organizations were largely
"I find a parallel situation in
the West. Women began working
in the general left movement and
yet found that men on the left also
The feminist movement was
strong in the 1860s in Russia but
during the revolution these
women were forced to give up
their feminist views for a socialist
cause. When Almanach first appeared it received the same reactions that the early feminists had
in the early 1920s.
"It is very difficult to organize
an emancipatory feminist movement because all people in the
Soviet Union are oppressed.
Women experience that and
The hope for an international
women's movement is alive. According to Mamonova a Polish
feminist movement began in November of last year. The group in
Warsaw now consists of 100 people and the Polish system offers
better opportunities than the
Soviet one.

PageS Bent provocative but not preachy
Many nationalities perished during the Nazi holocaust. Jews, Poles,
Ukranians, Armenians and gypsies
are just some of the frequently mentioned victims of the massacre. A
little known fact about the
holocaust is that a subculture which
cut through the boundaries of any
particular nationality also suffered
Nazi persecution. The subculture
was made up of homosexuals: German and non-German homosexuals
alike were hounded, put in concentration camps, subjected to torture,
and murdered.
That almost forgotten chapter of
world history — during which as
many as 500,000 homosexuals may
have been killed — is the subject of
Martin Sherman's powerful play,
Bent, which is currently given a
magnificent production by
Tamahnous theatre.
Written by Martin Sherman
Directed by Larry Lillo
Playing at the Arts Club theatre on
Seymour till April 11
Bent is a play of content as well
as feeling. While we learn about one
homosexual's experiences as a
fugitive, captive, concentration
camp victim, lover, and survivor,
we also feel for and with the
Bent is a play of identification, of
empathy and sympathy, of
understanding and respect for individuals who suffer a horrendous
fate because of their sexual orientation. And while the play is set in
Berlin, 1934, the nature of the
characters and the conflict
transcends time barriers and the audience sees the characters as human
beings learning to cope with and
fight an ominous, overbearing injustice in their own courageous
The play blends humor with a
dramatic stream of'tragic proportions. Bent opens with a comical
situation. Max (Allan Gray) wakes
up in his Berlin apartment with a
hangover, only to discover that he
brought home a male companion
(Bruce Greenwood) the previous
night. While his roommate Rudy
(Edward Astley) rants affectionately about how one should care for
household plants, and Max and
Rudy worry about how they're going to pay the month's rent, two SS
officers storm the apartment. Wolf,
Max's one-night stand, is captured
and murdered brutally before our
The opening of the play is similar
to Bent's whole structure. Often,
scenes are introduced with humor,
but as the situation progresses, they
become menacing and frightening.
The humor elicits laughter from us,
but it's a nervous laughter, an all
too-acute awareness that the
gentleness of a circumstance will
not last, and that the few moments
of solitude and comfort that the
characters experience will be overshadowed by the Nazi's ruthless intervention.
After Max and Rudy escape from
Berlin, they hide out in a forest (or
"a jungle", as Rudy persists in calling it). As the two lovers sit down
by a small fire like boy scouts or the
Hitler Youth around a campfire, as
Rudy says, their desperate love
shines through. Max promises Rudy
"cocaine and new glasses" once
they get to Amsterdam, and they
sing Streets of Berlin together.
It's a wonderful moment: it's quiet,
touching, and says everything about
what these characters are capable of
Their moment of peace doesn't
last, however, and Max and Rudy
are captured. On a train ride to
Dachau, Rudy is murdered before
Max's eyes, and Max is powerless to
stop the brutality. A companion advises Max that "If you want to stay
alive, he (Rudy) can't exist," and
Max complies. He disowns Rudy,
and even contributes to his death.
Max is a survivor; he later claims,
"I'm good at staying alive, I'm
good at that."
But as we see during the course of
the play, Max isn't heartless. The
treatment of prisoners at Dachau is
enough to break his pride, but not
his individuality. At Dachau, he
meets Horst (John Moffat), the
companion on the train, and slowly
the two work together and begin to
care for each other.
Horst is classified as gay at the
camp; the Nazi officials, though
many of them have gay tendencies,
regard gays as lower human beings
than Jews. "If you're queer, that's
what you wear: a pink triangle,"
Horst says. Max wears a yellow
star, having persuaded Nazi guards
"He's a bit bent," they said. "He
can't." "But I did," says Max defiantly.
Max and Horst learn to love each
other. But their love isn't con-
sumated in physical sexuality. Their
union is of a different sort, one that
is necessitated by rules and regulations which prevent male prisoners
from touching and caressing each
other. During three minute breaks
from their laborious work, they
stand side by side.
They can neither see nor touch
one another. But they feel each
other through a language not even
the Gestapo can control: verbal
foreplay and verbal sex. Despite immense restriction, Max and Horst

claims, "Don't love me. I can't love

Friday, March 20,1981 Vaudeville lives on!
Who said vaudeville died?
The Karamazov brothers, totally
unique jugglers from San Francisco, are living evidence that
vaudeville struggles on in unexpected ways.
The. four 'brothers', Fyodor,
Dmitri, Ivan and Smerdyakov, put
on one of the most original and
entertaining displays of sheer skill
you're ever likely to see. You may
have checked out the theatre line-up
jugglers down on the Granville mall
— if you like them, you'll love the
brothers because they take juggling
to unheard of heights.
They come out on stage, looking
like freaks who got transported into
a Dostoyeusky novel and casually
toss a total of twelve Indian clubs
between them.
Then the jokes and puns start flying back and forth, providing a verbal counterpoint to the intricate
pattern woven by their skilful juggling. And this is where the real
authentic vaudeville touch comes in
— the jokes are corny, the puns
outrageous, the insults directed at
each other and at the audience more
and more vicious as the brothers
perform more and more intricate
juggling feats.
One brother to another: "Quit
stallin' ". Reply: "That's what
Lenin told Trotsky, 'Quit Stalin!"
And in true music hall fashion, the
audience boos and hisses for all its
The Karamazov Brothers became
known in Vancouver by appearing
at the Vancouver folk festival last
summer where they won many converts to the Karamazovian way of
The brothers maintained an excellent rapport with the audience,
expecially with the children, for
whom they have roughly the same
sort of feelings for that W. C.
Fields had for Baby Leroy:
benevolent contempt. "You don't
understand," says brother Ivan to a
child convulsed with laughter, "I
do this for money, you're here just
for amusement."
One great Karamazov routine
presents a day in the life of the ' 'flying Kabuki brothers" who are
students at what could be called a
Zen juggling institute. The
brothers engage in mock battle using large metal rings and in addition
to the grace of movement
demonstrated the skill involved in
figuring out the puzzle set up by the
interlocking rings is also something
to behold.
Later in the show the brothers
juggle a chain saw, which is not an
object usually associated with the
dramatic arts. But the Karamazovs
managed to keep the chain saw
aloft amid a flurry of colored balls,
though those up in the balcony got
more carbon dioxide then they
bargined for. This is one trick better
left outside.
Throughout the show the
brothers gradually introduced the
'nine objects of terror': nine ordinary objects almost impossible to
juggle together: an egg, a frying
pan, a flaming torch, a sickle, a
large butchers knife, a ukelele, a
gavel, a fish, and a bottle of California wine, which pops open and is
drunk by the brothers after they
manage to juggle this disparate collection of junk.
What can you say about the
Karamazovs? They're ultimate
street theatre, they're the funniest
act you'll see in a long time, they're
diverse, but they remain fun.
Tonight and tomorrow night, at the
Vancouver East Cultural Center,
are your last chance to see them for
a while.
Who thought up this awful crap anyway?
When Peter Yates and Steve
Tesich got together for Breaking
Away, the result was fresh, original,
and unexpected. Breaking Away
was a textbook lesson for all prospective filmmakers in how suc
cessful a potentially risky film project can be when the director and
writer co-operate. It proved that
director Yates could handle sensitive comedy dramas as well as
choreographed car chases, as in
Bullitt, for example. The film also
proved that Tesich has a good ear
for dialogue and dramatic
Starring William Hurt and
Sigourney Weaver
Playing at the Odeon
Watching Eyewitness isn't even a
small pleasure; it's a chore. The
editing is uncertain, some of the
lines are atrocious, and awkward
transitions interrupt the flow.
When complications and twists
arise in this blind plot, they don't
interest you; the question keeps
recurring in your mind, who
thought up this crap?
Eyewitness attempts to be
mystery and light comedy at the
same time. Frankly, it isn't much of
either. Its plot is the stuff out of
which some of Capra's films were
made. Janitor Daryl Deever
(William Hurt) stumbles unwittingly into a murder conspiracy. He involves a local television reporter
(Signourney Weaver) with whom
he's in love in the conspiracy, and
puts both their lives in jeopardy.
Looking at some overblown hype
surrounding Eyewitness, one would
imagine Hurt and Weaver to be
Tracy and Hepburn of the conservative '80s. They aren't. Looking at
some of the comments that have
been attributed to this film, one
would imagine Eyewitness to be a
"thriller in the Hitchcockian tradition." It isn't. In these troubled
time, with no film heroes on the
horizon, Hurt and Weaver are the
closest combination for the real
thing. Another Tracy or Hepburn
wouldn't hurt. Or a Bogie and
Bacall. Or a Laurel and Hardy. But
all the hype surrounding Eyewitness
just goes to prove that idoimakers
can be as boorish as iconoclasts.
The fault lies not in the stars, but
in the writer and director. Tesich is
caipable of writing good dialogue.
In one amusing scene, Daryl, making a pass as Tony, says he'd be
ready to wax her floors anytime.
"I'll buff it gently, till it beams,"
he says mischievously. But Tesich is
also capable of writing the most
clinched lines. When Tony's live-in
boyfriend comes to a dead end in
his illegal operations, he says, "It
was wonderful to have a cause in a
world where supposedly neither exists." On paper, that line must have
sounded wonderful. On screen, it
doesn't work.
Eyewitness is about as far from
Hitchcock's style and the "Hitchcockian tradition" as one could
imagine. Hitchcock knew when to
be mysterious, ironic, and even
cynically humourous. And most important of all, he was inventive.
Yates isn't. And neither is Tesich.
Eyewitness is a forgettable film.

Horst is their spirit and determination in the face of certain death.
Their personal courage is overwhelming, and their story is lasting
and unforgettable.
Playwright Martin Sherman has
the considerable ability to write excellent dialogue. He presents turn
of events and plot developments
with masterful skill. And both
halves of the play are impressive in
their own way: the first because it
creates the proper mood and introduces a variety of characters,
and the second largely because of its
microscopic focus on Max and
A good play does not, of course,
guarantee a good production. But
Tamahnous theatre does itself proud   with   Bent.   Sherman's   play
(which ran on Broadway with
Richard Gere) is directed deftly by
Larry Lillo, who shows a
remarkable agility with his actors.
From the smallest role, to the
character of Max, the play's centre
of attention, the actors turn in
dazzling performances. Besides
Astley, Braidwood, Gary, Greenwood and Moffat, the cast also includes Stephen Miller (as an SS officer), Allan Thompson (as a
Gestapo captain and an SS guard),
and especially Alex Diakum, who,
plays both Greta, the drag queen-
owner of the club where Rudy
works, and an SS captain.
The play belongs, however, to
Alan Gray, as Max. From the opening moments of carefree laughter to
the humiliating capture to the tragic
conclusion, his character dominates
the play. His is a stunning performance, full of character and depth.
Bent isn't for audiences who fancy culinary theatre. It is a provocative play, often touching and illuminating, but one which never

Page 7 The Dogs of War, a two-headed beast
Starting with Fredrick Forsyth's
novel, The Dogs of War, three
distinct types of movie could be
made: a sugar-coted, sentimental
picture of "cute", lovable
mercenaries, an in-depth character
portrait of a believable mercenary,
or a straight-ahead, old-fashioned,
shoot-'em-up war movie. Luckily,
the first option was ignored, but
between the other two, this film version of The Dogs of War didn't
seem to be able to make up its
The effect this movie gives is ofi
two different films, cut in half and
spliced together with their parts
mixed. The first portion introduces
the protagonist, James Shannon, a
professional mercenary based in
New York.
Just back from an operation in
Central America, he is approached
by the mysterious Mr. Endine who
commissions him for the recon-
naisance of Zangaro, a newly-
independent central African nation
ruled by President Kimba, a
psychotic, Idi Amin-like dictator.
The exact purpose of his mission is
to determine whether a coup is "imminent ... or, indeed, possible."
Shannon carries out his mission,
barely escaping from Zangaro with
his life, and submits his report to
Endine, who commissions Shannon
to organize and lead a commando
strike against Kimba's residence
(the army garrison in the capital city), with the intention of killing
Kimba and replacing him with a
Zangaran exile, Colonel Bobi.
Shannon accepts the mission,
engages his team of three fellow
mercenaries and organizes the mission.
The Dogs of War breaks down
into an unhappy marriage of a good
character study and a paean to the
murderous power of modern

"guerrila documents and war
material" seized by Salvadorian
forces in El Salvador. In his press
briefing Haig said that the
documents "are not our only
source. Technical means and
human intelligence were used to
confirm the documents."
Aside from such "definitive
evidence" the report went on to
say; "In its commitment to reform
and democracy, the government of
El Salvador has had political support of the United States ever since
the October 1?79 revolution."
The white paper provides examples of propaganda generated
With the aid of communist networks. One of the more extreme
cases, it stated, was that the El
Salvadorian government's security
forces were responsible for most of
the 10,000 killings that occured in
Rather than rely on information
of dubious origin, publicized by a
government with interests to protect, it would be wiser to turn to the
files of Amnesty International (AI).
This is an international concern
launched in 1961 to work impartially and without political connection
for the release of people imprisoned
for their religious or political
beliefs. They have become a sort of
watchdog for human rights.
In 1977 they were awarded the
Nobel Peace Prize. The award committee said in part, "AI has contributed to securing the ground for
freedom, for justice and thereby
also for peace in the world."
AI's file on El Salvador for the
year 1980-81 is several feet thick. It
contains submissions to human
rights commissions and statements
made to the Organization of
American States, There are long
lists of people from every
background, ranging in age from
infant to 80 years who have been
killed or have disappeared. Some
died from bullet wounds, others
were raped and/or tortured. Bodies
have been found mutilated, faces
erased, genitals cut off and eyes
Taken from AI document AMR
29-07-81, dated 2 February 1981:
"Despite government claims that
those killed by its forces are
guerillas and guerilla sympathisers,
victims of torture and death at the
hands of the security forces were
not generally shown to have any
direct involvement in armed guerilla
activitity ... By attributing detentions, torture and killings to groups
beyond government control, the
government of El Salvador seems to
have sought a means of evading accountability for the extra-legal
measures carried but by its own
security forces."
That report igoes on to say that
young people and peasants seem to
have been singled out for death.
Red Cross clinics have been attacked, foreign and domestic journalists
have disappeared or been killed
while reports were received that
Salvadorian paramilitary squads attacked refugee camps in Honduras.
Harper's March 1981 issue carries
a report on El-Salvador by T. D.
Allman. Harpers is a conservative
American publication supported by
a full page for United Technologies
.and General Motors.
The article contains the following: "However diligently one searched for significance, one found
only terrorized, hapless people —
abused, barefoot women with no
food or medicine for their
malnourished children: landless,
jobless, illiterate men and boys fleeing for their lives from the 'security
forces' of their own national
government; mutilated bodies
beside the road."
"When I asked them if they were
revolutionaries, the villagers all
raised their hands. 'To be a revolutionary? one man explained, 'is to
fight against the soldiers who kill
people who have committed no
crime? "
The soldiers are sent by what
Washington terms "a Christian
Democratic-military coalition.''
The president is Jose Napoleon
Durarte, a man once tortured by the
same military he now supposedly
co-governs with.
A reign of terror exists in El
Salvador; no one is immune. The
Catholic Archbishop was
assassinated. American nuns were
raped and killed. Teachers were
shot before their students. Peasants
and children have died.
It is this situation that the
American government seeks to support with increased military aid.
Robert White, former U.S. Ambassador to El Salvador lost his job
questioning the wisdom of supporting such carnage.
Unfortunately American
newspapers have centered on Haig's
white paper and his hard line on
communism appears with McCar-
thyite regularity.
The Washington Post, billed as
an "Independent Newspaper" ran
this editorial days before the release
of the white paper; "A military
response is necessary in El
Salvador, where a Nicaraguan,
Cuban, Soviet supported insurgency is attempting to overthrow an
army-backed center-right government with a commitment to social
Social reforms were promised but
never fulfilled. The wealthy elite
who would have lost power and
money stymied it and now fight
both the government and what is
referred to as the left-wing guerillas.
Where does the extreme right get
arms? Haig isn't interested in
revealing that information.

tries such as Cuba are responsible

The only intervention in El
Salvador is Yankee intervention.
The military junta in El Salvador is
in power just because of the help
mutilated people are found out in
the street,.. but they are not afraid
of it (the junta).
Lately we've been hearing a lot
about land reforms in El Salvador.
One thing the FDR is accused of doing is terrorizing those people who
have participated in junta-backed
and the support of the Reagan administration. The Salvadorean people don't need the help of Cuba
because it's a fight for the
Salvadorean people. If we were
receiving such help from the Soviet
Union or from Cuba we would
already have won the revolution.
Would it be fair to say the mass
of the Salvadorean people are
behind the FDR? You read in the
commercial press about how the
Salvadoreans are just the innocent
victims of a power struggle between
agents of the Soviet Union and
Cuba and the junta. Is that the case
or are most people politically conscious and are they supporting the
First of all the FDR is the expression of the masses. The people of El
Salvador, despite very harsh repression, are not afraid of the junta
because they are conscious. They
know the only way they have to be
in a really democratic country is
through the revolution. There is
very, very harsh repression, you
know genitals are cut off and put in
people's mouths and hundreds of
land reforms. I would like to know
how the people in El Salvador view
those land reforms and if the FDR
came to power what social measures
they would implement.
First of all there's not any land
reform in El Salvador. They always
talk about such reforms because the
United States is the only way they
can get advisors. So that's the only
way the United States can have
them there. Right now there's over
a thousand in El Salvador.
You mean the supposed land
reforms are just an attempt by the
junta to make itself look good in
the eyes of the world so that the
United States can send advisors to a
moderate regime?
Are the petople in the FDR
seriously worried that a situation
similar to that in Vietnam may
develop, where outright military intervention was preceded by the introduction of 'advisors'?
What you said about Vietnam, that
something similar is going to happen in El Salvador, I would say yes.
What the Salvadorean people want
is to avoid the kind of thing that
happened in Vietnam. The only
thing the imperialists can do in El
Salvador is prolong the war.
Despite that, the revolution in El
Salvador will win. The Salvadorean
people, especially on this tour of
our singing group, are asking people to give solidarity to the people
of El Salvador in order to avoid a
new Vietnam.
Given that the church has played
a very active role in alerting people
to the plight of the Salvadorean
people, what role does the FDR see
for organizations like the church
after the revolution and how
pluralistic and broad-based a
government would they anticipate
Since the FDR is made up of
students, professionals, people of
the church, and small businessmen,
that will be the kind of government
we're going to have after the revolution. Because the same people (who
formed the FDR) are going to be involved in the new country. Because
the same people who are fighting
against the presence of the United
States and against what the rich
people are doing right now in El
Salvador to the majority of the peo-
weren't for the United States and its
support of the present junta the
junta would collapse and the people
of El Salvador could end this war?
El Salvador is a country of six
million people. The big majority is
against the junta. The junta right
now is staying in power just because
of the help of the United States.
And besides that, Duarte (president
of El Salvador), he is alone. He is
just a puppet of the administration
of the United States. If right now
the United States cut off support to
the junta, we say we'd win the
What can North Americans do
concretely to help the people's
struggle in El Salvador?
The best way for North American
people to help the people of El
Salvador is to be involved in the
solidarity committees that are being
formed all over Canada and the
United States. That's the best way
because such committees are
pushing together to stop the intervention in El Salvador and to
stop the support the United States
have given to the military junta.
Because in that way the war will be
stopped. The Salvadorean people
will have their own destiny because
pie,  these  people  are  going  to
choose for themselves what kind of
government they're going to have.
Would it be true to say that if it
we don't want Mr. Duarte in EI
Salvador and we don't want any intervention. It's our own fight and
the way to help us is with solidarity.

Friday, March 20,1981 HOT NEWS THAT FITS
Students' lungs suffer
but workers protected
Students inhaled contaminated
air Thursday in the Hector MacLeod building even after the
Workers Compensation Board
ordered notices be posted warning
workers to wear masks.
The WCB was called after several
faculty and staff reported breathing
problems and sore eyes, said electrical engineering safety committee
chair, H. T. Walters.
But while notices were posted and
masks made available for all paid
staff, no provision was made for
students, who continued classes
without any notification of the
health risk or provision for masks.
The health hazard resulted when
contractors sand blasting the exterior of the building switched from an
abrasive with free silica content of
.2 per cent to silica sand with 99.5
per cent inert silica.
"People were suffering without
realizing what the cause was," Walters said.
"As soon as we heard from the
board we got to work on their
recommendations," he added.
The WCB ordered notices to be
posted and masks provided, but the
board has no jurisdiction over students.
Walters said that the building's
air circulation system sucked in the
dust and it is now present throughout the building. The movement of
people disturbs the dust so masks
will likely be required until the
building can be vacuumed, he said.
The building has been under exterior renovations since January,
said engineering student Matt
But the hazardous material has
only been used recently, according
to Walters.

students angrily protested the pro-
vinciaJ government's land reserve
policy on the steps of the legislature
The agriculture students charged
the B.C. Agriculture Land Commission Act violates democratic
principles of open public hearings
on removing land from land reserves.
The students were angry about
the removal of 523 acres of Delta
farmland belonging to Social Credit
supporter George Spetifore from
the reserve.
The land was removed by direct
appeal to the Socred cabinet after
the agriculture land commission
turned down Spetifore's request,
and the students said this was outrageous.
Agriculture minister Jim Hewitt
said, "It's easy to say that (land
should not be taken out of the reserve) because you're in agriculture.
There's others calling for more
After talking to ministers, the
protesters buried a coffin on the
lawn of the legislature to symbolize
the death of B.C. agriculture.
Municpal affairs minister Bill
Vander Zalm told the group "you
either don't understand, or you
don't want to understand."
Agriculture undergraduate society president Gord Pederson said,
"I think we made the ministers
aware of our concern for the future
of agriculture in B.C. We showed
(Hewitt) we won't sit back and let
more land deals such as Spetifore's
(go through)," he said.

around UBC is starting to wind

sportings events start taking place.
This weekend the women's tennis
team will be hosting the UBC tennis
tournament. We did not know who
they are playing because the athletic
office did not even tell us that thefe
was a women's tennis team. Where?
We assume somewhere on campus.
We do know there is a men's rugby team which will be playing those
wild cats from the Kats Rugby
Club. The game will be at Thunderbird Stadium on Saturday and will
get under way at 2:30 p.m.
Did you know that UBC has a
women's ice hockey team? Well we
do, and it is very good. This past
weekend the women participated in
combination supermarket and
shoelace store.
Meanwhile back at the zoo the
friends of the'armadillo are pleased
to announce armadillo week starts
The armadillo ride will be held at

Page 15 Save our food supply
The week of protest goes on. But while most of the
demonstrations have been focused on student concerns, the UBC agriculture students have chosen to
publicize the rapid and dramatic loss of B.C.'s
The general public might be able to forgive the
Socreds for ignoring student demands, but the
government's cavalier attitude towards preserving
arable land is another question. Agriculture minister
James Hewitt has done a good job of publicly minimizing the severe effects of current land policy, but
Thursday the aggies did an even better job of telling
the truth.
Why UBC students should have to resort to burying
coffins in the middle of the legislature grounds is an
easy question to answer. It is because the Socreds,
despite their "goal" of achieving 65 per cent self-
sufficiency in food production by 1965, are doing
everything they can to give away the most arable land
to their developer friends and supporters.
The Spetifore case is the best example: 523 acres of
prime agricultural land was deemed low grade and
released to George Spetifore, a longtime Socred supporter, who just happened to have a large and profitable development he wanted to build on.
The aggies consider the present land situation in the
Fraser Valley critical. Hewitt tries to placate the
citizens by saying how much land has been added to
the agricultural reserve, without mentioning that most
of the income land is low-grade arable while outgoing
land is highly productive. The Fraser Valley has most
of the highly fertile land in B.C. — yet while this region
contains only three per cent of the land in the reserve,
35 per cent of the net reduction in the size of the
reserve has been in the valley.
The agriculture faculty has refused to support the
aggies. Even the B.C. Institute of Agrologists refuses
to face reality, and continues to follow the politically
motivated policy of the Socreds.
The next time you buy a head of lettuce and it costs
$2, or can't find fresh fruit even though you know it's
in season, or even find locally canned goods in short
supply, try to think about why it happened.
The aggies already know. More of us should listen.

outlined in the Helsinki
Article   13/2  of the   Universal
Declaration of Human Rights assets
"everyone has the right to leave any
country, including his own ..."
Misha has committed a crime according to Soviet authorities: he
wanted to emmigrate to Israel. His
family applied for an exit visa in
1973, but authorities denied the request, claiming Misha's father
knew matters of internal security.
All Misha can do is sit and wait.
Misha is frustrated for another
reason. Because he applied for an
UBC Reports wrong
To the editor, UBC Reports:
In your Mar. 4 edition, we are informed that "Students earned more,
saved more in 1980." A critical reading of the article suggest the story
has a less happy ending than your headline is willing to betray.
The announcement is in real truth, rather than newspeak, an outright
You give us a few figures from UBC's Student Counselling and
Resource Centre: 21.7 per cent of male and 7.7 per cent of female
students earned at least $3,500; median 1980 earnings for employed
undergraduate men were $3,551, an increase of $282 over the 1979 median, and mean savings were $2,275, an increase of $179 over 1979; and
for women earnings were $2,469, an increase of $266, and savings were
$1,621, up $170 over 1979.
Surely in a university we can calculate the inflationary increases in the
cost of living and reason that in real money, students earned less and
saved less in 1980.
It gets worse: the "estimated minimum amount necessary to finance a
university year" is about $2,200 in summer savings. The reader is left to
wonder whether students live under plastic shelters in the woods and eat
waste paper, or whether there are not unmentioned sources of student
Assistance for students? How much for how many? Accessibility to
education is not universal; which sectors of the population are being affected? Is a report which mentions "more" four times, "increase" three

exit visa, authorities have made it
impossible for him to attend university. When he applied to a
prestigious art school, authorities
told him he had failed the entrance
examination. But unlike all other
students, Misha was denied an appeal.
Numerous other cases testify to
official Soviet policy denying
Refuseniks — those denied exit
visas — the right to study.
There is another reason for
Misha's anger. Not being a student,
he is subject to military conscription. And if conscripted, authorities
will not allow him to emmigrate for
at least seven years. They will claim
military service exposed Misha to
matters of national security.
Worse, if Misha refuses induction because he wants to emmigrate
now, he will face a minimum of a
three year sentence in labour camp
— a dismal thought for a boy who
only wants to study art in Israel.
But Misha is not unique. There
are hundreds of other Refuseniks
denied the same basic Human
Rights. Pressure on behalf of individual cases obtains the best
results.   Soviet   authorities   have
committed themselves to the support of Human Rights, but defy
their obligations.
You can help press the Soviets to
hold to their obligations.
You can help Misha Taratuta —
and hundreds like him — finally get
his exit visa.

Ubyssey obviously didn't have the
sense to figure out the difference.
The response from several visually impaired students to the garbage
under the picture was, "This is insulting to us. We tried to make the
point and The Ubyssey responds by
yuk king it up!"
As chairman in charge of communications for 1981, I.Y.D.P., I
have seen a lot of press coverage of
events promoting The Year of
Disabled Persons, including quite a
number of student newspapers.
The captions under the pictures

Student court rendered righteous verdict
Regarding the guilty verdict
found by the student court in the
case of Robert Waite, I would like
to address myself to comments
made by Mr. Bragagnolo, the student defense counsel and Mr.
Waite, the defendant following the
trial Mar. 10.
As reported in The Ubyssey, it
was the unanimous judgment of the
court that Waite's refusal to return
the buttons he had taken, in addition to his abusive conduct towards
Mr. McDonald while he attempted
to retrieve them, constituted
behavior deemed unbecoming of a
member of the Alma Mater Society
under bylaw 21(1) c (j)3 of the AMS
Bragagnolo said following the
judgment that "the standards of
society are being subverted in
favour of homosexuals and other
aberrant behaviours" and further
that he thought "it's pathetic the
way normal people are being
discriminated against so bleeding
heart liberals can salve their conscience by bending over backwards
in an attempt to prove they're not
prejudiced against a deviant fringe
of our society."
Waite's advice was for "all
homos ... to take a large dose of
male hormones and go back to the
closet." This, I might add, was a
pleasant appendix to Waite's earlier
statement to McDonald: "Well,
you got me, faggot. You've stuffed
it right up my ass" — merely the icing on a plum-filled cake of abusive
I would comment first on the
legal issues in this case and, secondly, on the prejudicial statements of
the defense counsel and defendant
in reference to homosexuals.
McDonald's sexual orientation was
not at issue here, any more than
Waite's sexual orientation was.
What was at issue was a case of
theft of property, assault, and
abusive conduct. The student court,
the lawfully appointed judicial
body of the AMS, after listening to
testimony of both parties,
unanimously found Mr. Waite guilty on these grounds. Bragagnolo, in
what can only be described as a case
of sour grapes, has pathetically
tried to submerge this fact with accusations of some kind of pro-gay
bias on the part of the judges.
As if a complete distortion and
misrepresentation of the issues were
not sufficient compensation for his
poor defense, Mr. Bragagnolo felt a
further compunction to undermine
gays as a group with a plethora of
foolish remarks which at worst
show deeply irrational fears and
prejudices, and at best betray incredible ignorance.
In one statement he has said that
"the standards of society are being
subverted in favour of homosexuals
and other aberrant behaviours,"
while in another he refers to gays as
"a deviant fringe of our society."
The former statement seems to
imply that gays stand outside of a
society whose standards
Bragagnolo is diligently bent on
defending, while the latter statement seems to suggest that they are
a part of that society, albeit a sick,
peripheral element. That society,
one is given to understand, is
represented by the values of "normal people," a term Bragagnolo
freely bandies about in describing a
group for whom he seems to be a
self-appointed arbiter.
While I in no way wish to deny
Bragagnolo his chosen role as omniscient narrator for the cast he has
devised in this tiny drama of conventional morality, I might remind
him that gays as a group constitute
at least 10 per cent of the popula
tion (Kinsey). Far from being a deviant fringe, or, alternately, an inanimate aberration in Bragagnolo's
list of society drop-outs, gays are a
large, forceful and contributing
part of the community, and can be
found in all races, creeds, colors,
occupations and income groups.
Why, Bragagnolo might look no
further than his own faculty of law
to find himself rubbing shoulders
with this invisible fringe element in
the incarnated forms of fellow
students and professors.
As for the student defense
counsel's hastily applied appela-
tions of "deviants" to those he
evidentally sees as threats to his personal values and "normal people"
to those who share them, 1 might
offer the following comments:
It has been a number of years
since the psychiatric community has
viewed homosexuality as mental illness to be treated. The prevailing
question today seems to be what
causes people to become
homophobic — that is, to develop
irrational fears about gay people.
While the question is too enormous
to explore in this limited column, it
is sufficient to say that many
therapists are committed to helping
individuals rid themselves of unacceptable attitudes such as these.
Counselling affords the individual an opportunity of locating
the source of these irrational fears
that are the basis for so much
directed hostility, and thus prevents
the homophobia from spreading to
a whole field of acts related in reality and symbobcally to these fears.
Thus Bragagnolo, whose rage is
clearly abstract at this point, could
curb a future tendency to develop a
mode of response towards gays
such as; we see in Mr. Waite's
abysmal behaviour and hateful invective.
Of course, Bragagnolo can continue to hold the position that theft,
assault, and generally abusive
behaviour are more in keeping with
"the standards of society" that
justice for individuals who are the
victims of such crimes, but in this
case he should perhaps seriously
consider abandoning his career in
In conclusion, I would like to affirm a commonly held belief that, in
a truly great society, there is room
for all who do not infringe upon the
rights of others. This means that
Bragagnolo and Waite are
doubtless free to continue to hold
the defamatory views they have
about gay people, however damaging they may be in social relations.
Yet it binds them to a recognition
that should they violate the rights
and privileges of other individuals,
should they steal or become
abusive, they will be held accountable for their actions.

Kangaroo court misuses powers
A misuse of the powers of the
university was recently committed
at UBC in a recent ruling by the
Student (Kangaroo) Court. This
student panel allowed its misguided
sense of liberalism to express itself
in reverse discrimination, the
court's recent ruling in favour of an
admitted (and practicing?)
homosexual is a sad commentary on
the state of the standards of fairness
in our society.
It appears that not only is it now
acceptable to be homosexual or
supportive of homosexuals, it is in
fact trendish and a subject of approval. It seems that homosexuals
are free to support their stance
through   verbally   and   physically
Closets for clothes, not gays
I shall begin my response to the
article "Student hits court 'bias.' "
in The Ubyssey, March 12, by correcting some of the inaccurately reported facts of the case.
Student court decided to suspend
Waite from all AMS and athletic
privileges only after Waite refused
to comply with the court's order
that he write formal letters of apologies to the court, the arresting officer, Gay People of UBC and
Mark McDonald.
The defence's claim that Waite
"had simply thrown the garbage"
contradicts the claim made in a letter to The Ubyssey by a witness to
the incident, in which Waite was
said to have "touched" a pop can
to McDonald's head.
Perhaps Waite's behavior towards the arresting officer would be
illustrative of the tone of the abuse
directed towards McDonald. As
Waite refused to cooperate with the
officer (calling her a "fucking
cunt"), she was forced to handcuff
him and drag him away.
Waite was not "discriminated
against;" he assaulted another student and was dealt with through
proper student court procedure that
is designed to protect all students.
Neither McDonald's, nor Waite's
affectional preferences entered into
the decision rendered by student
Waite seems to feel that it is a
"good joke" for someone who is
not gay to wear a button supporting
Gay Week. It may interest Waite to
know that a number of heterosexuals did wear Gay Week buttons to
indicate their support for our struggles.
Perhaps if Waite would refer
himself to recent letters to The
Ubyssey, such as those by Lyster
and by Hermanson and Copping he
would find that support for gay issues is growing in the heterosexual
community as organized religion
finds that its moral condemnation
of gay people can't be biblically
justified. Progressive individuals
and groups (such as the United
Church of Canada and a number of
labor unions and businesses) can no
longer maintain their silence. They
are starting to speak out against society's persecution of gay people
and to back the demands of gay
Waite's advice that "all homos
. . . take a large dose of male hormones and go back to the closet"
shows a profound ignorance of the
gay community and of human physiology. The only "homos" in our
club with low levels of male hormones are those of the female gender.
As for Waite's advice that we go
back to the closet, those of us who
have come out from our closets will
never go back to that stifling half-
existence. Coming out of the closet
is not a question of flaunting one's
sexual preference; it is a personal
statement of one's worth as a whole
and healthy human being.
Closets are for clothes, not for
human beings. We will not be intimidated by the terrorist tactics
that Waite and his ilk perpetrate on
the gay community. We are your
brothers, sisters, children, parents,
friends, employers and employees.
We have been dumped on for too
long and demand to be treated as
equals and will accept nothing less.

abusive means and this conduct will
be sanctioned by bleeding heart
The student court obviously
found it hard to believe that a frail,
limp wristed homo would indeed
assault a 240 pound football player.
So when he does, they punish the
football player. Homosexuals
should not be subject to any special
abuse under the laws of the school,
but neither should they be entitled
-to any special protection.
When the heterosexual football
player exercised admirable restraint
in a situation causing him extreme
em harassment, he is found guilty by
the student court of "behaviour
unbecoming a member of the
Mark McDonald's statement that
Robert Waite had broken the law is
another example of his sympathy
seeking, since Waite has not been
found guilty of breaking any law.
What he has been found guilty of is
misbehaviour under a section of the
AMS constitution that is nol; defined in any way, and as a result the interpretation of which is left entirely
up to the discretion of the student
The student court in the exercise
of that discretion could plausibly
deem that walking through SUB,
breathing, or (heaven forbid)
holding hands with a female is
behaviour deemed unbecoming.
It also appears that this charge
allows no defense, and that Waite
was guilty by the facts. No consideration was given to the extreme
provocation and abuse given by the
homosexual. The question is,
"What real man would have

Stuart seems confused. He cites
Paul as writing to prohibit
homosexual relations because he
had a bias as a Jew in favor of
reproduction of the chosen people.
Yet he also writes that Jesus had extended the Convenant to the Jews
to all nations and that "the offer of
'choseness' has been extended to all
Paul knew that. His letter to the
Roman church dealt with this topic.
Having babies was not the method
for adding to the membership of the
church. Rather, it has been in this
way: when Peter and John "were
teaching the people and proclaiming in Jesus the resurrection from
the dead . . . many of those who
heard the word believed; and the
number of the people came to
about five thousand." (Acts 4:2-4)
Stuart refers to I Corinthians 6.
In the next chapter, I Corinthians 7,
Paul writes, "To the unmarried and
the widows I say that it is well for
them to remain single as I do."
(verse 8), and "Now concerning the
unmarried ... I think that in view
of the present distress it is well for a
person to remain as he is." (verses
25-26). (The "distress" is persecution of Christians.)
In a chapter in which he affirms
marriage between a man and a
woman, Paul also affirms celibacy.
There is no evidence that hie had a
special concern about whether
believers would have children.
Jesus didn't say that all who
heard His words would do them.
(See Luke 6:46-49. "Why do you
call rne 'Lord, Lord' and not do
what I tell you?" verse 46.) He did
say, "He who is able to receive this,
let him receive it." (Matthew

Should the student court condone the verbal and physical abuse
heaped on the heterosexual by the
homosexual and not allow him to
react in a reasonable fashion.
Given the very broad power of
the student court, it appears that
Mcdonald seems to be guilty of the
very charge laid against Waite. It
could also be argued that
manifestations of homosexuality
itself would be behaviour deemed
unbecoming to a member of the
Let us set the record straight. We
are not supporting faggot bashing
in the open, but neither are we supporting homosexuality. Is homosexuality normal? Is it to be approved?
What we have here is an extremely belligerent and vocal minority
that is using incidents like this to
grandstand. Homosexuality may be
something that society and
homosexuals will have to live with,
but it is certainly nothing to be
proud about.

AMS hack
I am writing in response to the article 'Cheaper bus passes possible'
which appeared in Thursday's edition of The Ubyssey. I apologize for
my inability to attend the GVRD
transportation committee meeting
on March 12.
The present situation concerning
the reduction of fare card prices for
university students is as follows. A
delegation led by the King Edward
campus students presented a brief
asking to reduce the fare card prices
from $24 to $12 (the present cost
for secondary school students). The
brief argued that there should be no
discrimination between university
and secondary school students, as
university students must pay tuition
fees unlike secondary school students.
There will be another presentation next week to the GVRD transportation committee, which shall
include a delegation from UBC. I
will inform you of future developments.

Single-lens reflex technology has come a long way in a very short
time. And if you're confused about what kind of camera to buy, imagine what it's like on the designing side.
No other camera in the world has the unique combination of
features found in the Pentax ME Super. Because only the Super
Camera combines the ease of automation with a push-button manual
system for creative control.
The ME Super's aperture-priority automation is easy and accurate. But the Super Camera's push button manual system can take
you beyond automation, and put you in complete control of any picture situation.
As you push the ME Super's shutter speed control buttons, the
speed rises and falls in one-stop increments. It's accurate, dependable
and very fast. It's so simple, it seems obvious. But it took Pentax
engineers and designers to bring it to life.
The Super Camera has something you'll find on no other camera
in its class: a top shutter speed of 1/2,000 second. For extra speed
shooting action. For using high-speed film in bright light.
The Super Camera gives you access to more than forty world-
famous Super-Multi-Coated Pentax lenses, from Fish Eye to Super
Telephoto, including nine zooms. All hailed for their outstanding
sharpness, contrast and freedom from aberrations. And all very compact for exceptional portability.
If you're getting started in photography, the Super Camera can
give you automation whenever you want it, and creative control
whenever you need it. If you'e an experienced photographer, it gives
you state-of-the-art performance, with system versatility in a rugged,
compact package.
Whatever k'md of photography you do, the Super Camera can
help you do it like no other camera in the world. See it soon at your
Pentax dealer's.
It's a small price to pay for perfection.
