Array Students suffer in UBC poll rip-off
By GEOF WHEELWRIGHT
A federal government decision
not to locate polling boothes in
UBC residences could leave many
students without a vote in the upcoming federal election.
Vancouver-Quadra returning officer Harold Morris said students
living on campus will have to vote
on election day at University Hill
secondary school, almost three
kilometres from the university. But
many student leaders and local
politicians charge that the poll's
remoteness will prevent many
students from voting, and instead
they suggest the establishment of a
residence poll.
Morris said establishing a poll in
the residences would be very difficult and is probably unnecessary.
"Are they (students) incapacitated?
What has been suggested is impractical."
Student leaders say they disagree
strongly with Morris.
"It (the poll) is a pain in the neck
to get to. A lot of students don't
have cars and it will be a fair
distance to walk," Craig Brooks, a
UBC Progressive Conservative
member, said Monday.
And campus Liberal spokesman
Dave Chessman agreed. "There's
already an inconvenience caused by
no enumeration, but again we have
Students losing
voice, rep says
By PETER MENYASZ
Student representatives are losing
ground in the battle for a fair voice
on UBC's board of governors, says
an outgoing student board member.
Some board members are preventing other members from
attending special meetings, Glenn
Wong charged Monday. And in doing so, they are misinterpreting a
previous board decision, he added.
"I was left with the impression
from (board secretary) Mr. (William) White that I wasn't invited,"
said Wong, referring to a special
board meeting held in January.
Wong said the board's table officers (executive and committee
members) called the meeting because there was no regularly scheduled   board  meeting  in   January.
"They have the authority to take
care of business that has to be
done."
But Wong added he should have
been invited to the meeting because
of a past board motion. "Bruce
(Armstrong) and I had a motion
passed that all board members
would be notified," he said. Wong
added that board member J. V.
Clyne approved the motion only after a clause was added saying
"where practical and possible."
And Wong charged that in this
case it was "practical and possible"
to notify board members of the upcoming meeting and invite them to
attend. But he said little effort was
made.
"Not only weren't we invited,

Who wants Trident?
1 do, I do,' says Tory
By HEATHER CONN
The Conservative party supports
development of the Trident nuclear
facility, but thinks disarmament
best serves Canada's defence, says a
Tory MP.
"Our party supports the development of the Trident nuclear facility
on the basis of first- or second-defence system, not a first-strike system," Bob Wenman (PC-Fraser
Valley-West) told an unsympathetic
audience at the Ridge theatre Sunday.
He told a public forum, sponsored by the United Nations Association, that Canadians do not maintain a moral obligation for world
peace, and added the Conservatives
favor increased defence spending.
Only through "idealism and rational discussion" will a holocaust
be avoided, he said.
Pauline Jewett (NDP, New West-
minster-Coquitlam) said her party is
working towards arms control and
disarmament more than any other
major party.
"The NDP party sees defence as
the servant of foreign policy, not
the master," she said to an applauding crowd. "We oppose aggression by any country at any
time."
Jewett says she thinks working
through the UN is the most effective means to curb aggression. She

a case of the students not being considered," he said.
Morris said it would be almost
impossible to inform all residence
students currently on the revision
list that a campus poll had been
established. There would be too
much confusion and disenfran-
chisement caused by such a change,
said Morris.
But he said if a "high, inordinate" number of students
registered for a given polling division, a new poll in the university
residences would be considered.
Morris said at least 250 voters must
register in a given polling division to
justify the establishment of a new
poll.
But Kevin Gillett, revising officer
for the campus polling divisions
said he has already processed
almost 1,500 applications, most of
which are for the UBC residence
polling divisions. He said he is expecting to receive about another
1,500 applications before the period
of revision ends Feb. 4.
Gillett said there could likely be
some polling divisions which will
reach the 250 voter mark, forcing
the establishment of a campus poll.
Morris said he did not set up a
poll for the residences originally
because no  poll  was  established
there during the election last May,
when students were off campus.
But Brooks said there is no reason
why Morris should not have
established a residence poll for the
current election, although advance
polls will be conducted at Walter
Gage on Feb. 9, 11 and 12.
"You're going to have around
3,000 voters out here. The circumstances (in this election) are entirely different," said Brooks.
Morris said he has already received one formal request to establish a
poll at the residences, but claims he
refused because revision at UBC
has not been completed.

Anti-racist rally seeks CTV apelegy
DEMONSTRATOR
'down with CTV'
TORONTO (CUP) — More than 2,000
demonstrators marched on CTV network
headquarters here Saturday to protest a program on international students that has been
called racist and inaccurate.
And in Edmonton, another 400 protestors
rallied against the W5 program The Campus
Giveaway, which was aired Sept. 30 and has
been the subject of continuing controversy.
At the Toronto protest speaker after
speaker attacked CTV for airing a program
that inferred that Chinese "foreigners" were
keeping Canadians out of university and college programs.
They said the W5 program made no attempt to differentiate between foreign
students and Canadian students of Chinese
origin.
Toronto mayor John Sewell told protestors the program was "a serious insult to the
educational aspirations of Canadians who
are not white."
NDP MP Bob Rae, one of several politicians and community leaders in attendance,
said the W5 report consisted of "amazing untruths."
"The assumption from W5 is that to be
white is to be Canadian and that to be non-
white is to be a foreigner. What we must understand is that an immigrant is not a foreigner. As Canadians we are all boat
people," Rae said.
Federal immigration minister Ron Atkey
did not attend the rally but sent a statement
to protestors attacking W5's claim that there
were 100,000 foreign students in Canada. Atkey said there are about 18,000 international
students in the country.
Donald Chu, chair of a committee of Chi-
nese-Candians who organized the protest,
said the committee was demanding a public
apology from CTV, equal time to present a
fair and accurate report and an assurance
that CTV will not air similar programs.
If CTV does not meet the requests the
group will continue to apply peaceful pressure, Chu said.
But CTV W5 producer Lionel Lumb,
speaking to reporters only inside network offices, said he strongly disagrees with the protestors' charges. Lumb claimed he could not
comment  further because several students
have sued the network for libel.
Chu said the program encouraged discrimination and ethnic stereotyping under the
guise of freedom of speech.
"It is irresponsible journalism that must be
suppressed. We need all Canadians to support the cause and promote mutual understanding."
Wilson Head, president of the National
Black Coalition, said the CTV program was
good for the Chinese community because it
"has incited the Chinese to fight back and
face the fact that there is a lot of bigotry."
"No one gives you freedom," he said. "It
is won in struggle."
In Edmonton, organizers presented a letter
of protest to the local station's president D.
R. Rice, who said it would be forwarded to
CTV. But Rice refused to comment on the
program, saying it would be inappropriate
while legal action initiated by the Chinese
community in Toronto was under way. He
added that CTV has "never knowingly discriminated against any group or individual." Page 2

said she favors economic and trade
sanctions, more authority for the
UN general assembly and elimination of Canada's department of defence, to be replaced by an external
affairs division for disarmament
and peace.
Only by eliminating and prohibiting all nuclear weapons on Canadian soil will our nation's interests
be best served, said Bert Ogden the
Communist Party of Canada candidate in Vancouver-Kingsway to a
cheering crowd.
The Communist party demands
Canada's complete withdrawal
from NORAD and NATO and supports a 50 per cent reduction in defence spending, said Ogden. "Our
party is unalterably opposed to the
development and deployment of
Trident. It makes Bangor, Victoria
and Vancouver a target area."
The concept of Canada's unilateral disarmament is naive and
collective security is the only way to
protect our nation's interests, said
Peter Pearse, Liberal candidate in

Speakeasy is having a birthday. For
those who need more convincing, it
is absolutely true. Speakeasy is celebrating its tenth birthday this week.
And they're doing it in style.
"We'd like people to get to know us
more on campus," Speakeasy management committee executive Nancy Henderson said Monday.
So the Speakeasy staff is hosting
a party today in front of the group's
SUB main mall location. "We
thought it would be fun," said Henderson. "It'll start today at noon
and go until it stops."
Henderson said there will be
plenty of birthday cake for those
who want to join in. And she said
the party will give Speakeasy an opportunity to remind people of their
services.
Henderson said most of Speakeasy's work is directed toward
handling students' problems with
birth control and alcohol abuse.
"We get an average of about 500
calls per week," said Henderson.
"People are concerned about birth
control and their health."
Callers are not simply referred to
agencies for assistance, said Henderson. Speakeasy deals with students directly and has developed a
large number of personal contacts if
students need further help.
Henderson said most problems
Speakeasy deals with are not emergencies. "The big problem on this
campus is that it's hard to meet people," she said.
The school of social work began
Speakeasy in January, 1970 but it is
now handled entirely by student
volunteers. Tutorial and typing services are also available. Speakeasy's
hours are from 11:30 a.m. to 11:30
p.m. Monday to Friday and from
5:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Saturday.
Speakeasy has two telephone
lines: an information line at

Students rally against Gage hotel
Student leaders are predicting the
UBC housing administration will
withdraw a proposal to turn the
Walter Gage low-rise residence into
a hotel.
"We're hoping it (the plan) will
be stopped soon. And we've got a
hell of a good chance," Al Soltis,
president of Gage community council, said Monday. He said housing
director Mike Davis will meet stiff
opposition to the plan when he
meets with Gage residents tonight
to discuss it.
"The response has been very
good. People are very against the
proposal," said Soltis.
He said Davis no longer expects
student approval of the plan and
will probably be forced to drop it.
"Davis is starting to backtrack. I
don't think he expects it to go
through," said Soltis.
He said it is unacceptable for the
low-rise to be converted into a hotel
while there are still long waiting lists
to get into UBC residences and
while student enrolment at UBC is
increasing.
And Craig Brooks,'Alma Mater
Society housing commissioner, said
Davis will have to drop the hotel
scheme if a large number of
students show up at tonight's
meeting. "And it seems there is one
heck of a lot of opposition to it,"
said Brooks.
U of T invests in South Africa
TORONTO (CUP) — The University of Toronto has confirmed
that it has invested $2.5 million in
banks and corporations operating
in South Africa.
Alex Rankin, university vice-
president for business affairs, has
verified the accuracy of a United
Nations report which states the university has large investments in
stocks of banks and corporations
who are loaning money to apartheid
South Africa or directly investing in
the country.
The UN report, presented to the
UN special committee against apartheid last fall, states that the university invests in the Bank of Montreal, the Canadian Imperial Bank
of Commerce, the Royal Bank and
the Toronto-Dominion Bank, all of
which have participated in almost
S645 million worth of loans to
South Africa between 1972 and
1978.
Rankin said the university is not
giving any thought to divesting itself of shares in the banks and corporations despite pressure from
anti-apartheid groups and divestment moves by some universities in
Canada.
"Many companies have invested
in South Africa," he said. "And it
is perfectly stupid not to invest in
them."
Large banks and companies such
as Massey-Ferguson, Coca-Cola
and Alcan invest in South Africa
not because they support apartheid,
according to Rankin, but because
"they naturally invest in their best
(financial) interests."
The movement to divest such investments has been strong at many
universities, especially since the Soweto riots of 1976.
There have been successful divestment campaigns in Canada and
the U.S., including those at the
University of Winnipeg and Dawson College in Montreal and Harvard, Yale and Columbia Universities in the U.S.
At U of T, the most active divestment group is the Toronto committee for the liberation of South Africa, which is conducting a divestment campaign in Ontario this spring.
But the issue has not been a big
one so far at the university. Student
president David Jones said the student union would be interested in
looking at the divestment question.
"If it could be shown what alternative the university could take (to investing in the four major banks), we
would be willing to bring the issue
before governing council.
The National Union of Students
has supported the divestment
groups. "These banks provide
direct loans to the government of
South Africa, thereby becoming a
partner in the prosecution of its
apartheid policies," NUS executive
members have said.
Totem chutes the shit
The shit has hit the garbage chute at Totem Park.
All Shuswap house residents have received letters from housing department coordinator Dima Utgoff asking for help in identifying the person
who dumped a bag of "human excrement" down the garbage chute Jan.
17.
And until the person is identified, the chute will remain closed, Utgoff
said Monday.
"We don't know if it's a prank or if someone has a health problem,"
Pat Buchannon, Totem Park senior house advisor, said. "Until we find out
what happened the chute will probably remain closed."
Utgoff said the bag containing the excrement split on impact and a
janitor discovered the mess 12 days ago.
"The way it works is the janitor has to clean out the chute. This made it
very unpleasant for him to work there," Utgoff said, adding that housing
was concerned with the health problem. "The chute will be steamcleaned
and disinfected," he said.
Garbage cans will be installed on each floor of Shuswap until the chute is
reopened, Utgoff said.
Almost half fail
English exam
UBC methods for teaching first
year English have changed, but the
results for this year's English composition exam are as dismal as ever.
Only 55 per cent of those who
wrote the "Christmas exam passed,
despite a move by the university to
make students work harder at
English. The UBC English department phased out a free remedial
English program last September to
encourage high school students to
be more competent before they
reach university, English 100 chair
Andrew Parkin said Monday.
"The fact that so many have failed in the past shows that many have
come without the necessary
preparation," he said.
But Parkin added he expects the
end of term pass rate to reach the
usual 80 to 85 per cent. "I think
another term of practice makes
them realize that clear precise
writing is what they (the students)
need," he said.
And Parkin said there is no need
for any change in the exams, which
are made up by an English department committee. "I think they're
very good, and have worked very
well in the past."
Parkin said the composition exam tests only basic reading and
writing skills. "Students in high
schools are now trying to acquire
those skills," he said.
Parkin said students were told in
September they would have to pay
to enrol in English composition
workshops held by UBC continuing
education if they expected difficulties in passing English.
Only 200 students attended these
workshops in the first term, said
Parkin. But 400 students attended
free remedial classes in 1978-79,
said UBC spokesman Al Hunter.
Parkin said it is important that
the English department is no longer
teaching high school English and he
hopes the exam results will serve as
an incentive for high school
students to work harder.
SFU gears might
lure researchers
Simon Fraser University's recently proposed engineering faculty
might be an attempt to lure tenants
for their research park, a UBC applied science faculty spokesman
said Monday.
"What is certainly clear is that if
you have an engineering faculty, it
can stimulate the high technology
industry in the region," said associate applied science dean Axel Mei-
sen.
And Meisen added that a major
factor in considering a research
park proposal is the technical support the university can provide.
"You would deny yourself one dimension if you did not have an engineering faculty."
SFU administration president
George Pedersen said the research
park is one consideration in proposing the new faculty. "There could
be that sort of relationship (between
the research park and technical education)," he said.
Pedersen added that B.C.'s low
output of engineering graduates is
another reason for establishing an
engineering faculty at SFU.

they didn't even tell us what was
happening," Wong said. "You play
by the rules, then they change them
on you."
Wong said he tried to discuss the
issue with board chair .Leslie Peterson, who he heard had been asked
to make a ruling on the matter. But
Wong said he was unable to contact
Peterson before the meeting.
The board had passed a motion
to inform members of such emergency meetings only when sufficient
time was available, Peterson said
Monday.
"(Board members) are not necessarily invited," he said. "I don't recall any meetings where they have
been present." But he added he saw
no reason why any member should
not be able to attend.
"It's too bad Glenn didn't get
clarification," board member Stanley Weston said Monday. "There
was a notice of the meeting, but it
didn't particularly invite anyone.
"It will probably be clarified at
the next meeting," Weston said.
But there might be enough demand for engineering students to
sustain another faculty in the province, Meisen said. "In order to
justify establishing another faculty,
one would have to prove an overall
increase in enrolment."
And Meisen said such an enrolment surge would have to be a result of both an increased interest in
engineering and a widening of job
markets for engineering graduates.
He said there are currently enough
jobs for the number of engineering
graduates UBC is turning out. "If
you double the number of students,
it could be a good deal tougher."
And Meisen predicted the new
faculty would find it difficult to get
financial support from the government and to attract 'top-flight engineers.
'Hang Clark
for his heinous
federal crime'
Prime minister Joe Clark should
be hanged for a severe crime against
humanity, the president of the
Marxist-Leninist party said Monday.
Canada's leader should be fatally
condemned if he sends Canadian"
troops to Afghanistan, Hardial
Bains told 50 people in SUB 215.
"If Canada lines up behind U.S.
imperialism it will be disastrous for
the Canadian people," he said.
"The Canadian people should look
into this matter seriously."
Bains said the Marxist-Leninist
party would undermine and subvert
"in every physical sense" any Canadian involvement with the conflict in Afghanistan. Only by opposing "imperialist forces" like the
USSR and the U.S. will Afghanistan's people achieve freedom, said
Bains.
In Canada, capital punishment
should be reserved for crimes such
as Clark's, he added. "It (capital
punishment) should be reserved for
crimes committed against humanity. Socialism does not use capital
punishment as the main instrument
of its rule.
"Capital punishment is used by
one class to terrorize the other," he
said. "Social criminals are a result
of a decadent capitalist system." Page 4

No more fun with Dick and Jane
Dick and Jane are very popular UBC students. They,
do well in class, and somehow find time from studying
to work part-time. They plan to be successful after
graduation. Jane wants to be a doctor; Dick, a
political scientist.
For fun Dick and Jane enter the Pit's wet t-shirt and
jockey shorts contest. And they always win. You see,
Jane has huge tits, and Dick's cock is the size of a
large salami.
The Pit is not the world's greatest drinking spot,
what with its A&W orange on brown decor, beer
stains and crowding. Yet it ain't half bad if one wishes
to quaff a few brew. But not for much longer.
Some clowns have come to the conclusion that wet
erogenous zone contests are a hell of a way to stir up
interest in the Pit. Sure. But throwing a few Christians
at hungry lions would probably have the same result.
Wet tit and dink contests are from the same era of
sexual awareness and maturity as the chastity belt.
Both are silly, harmful and a general pain.
These contests create sexual stereotypes. They are
degrading. They're exploitive, sexist and utterly immature.
As most of us have discovered, large sexual organs
do not a finer being make. And tittering, or applauding, at whoever is better endowed reeks of sexual immaturity.
While the Madison Ave. advertising execs would
like to have us believe that we can't possibly be successful or happy human beings without possessing the
body beautiful, this kind of plastic humanism should
not be condoned in the campus' only bar.
It is degrading in that people would actually promote pouring water on a sexual organ and then asking
for a response as to whose is more attractive. There's
more (or at least should be) to dignity than that.
It is sexist in that these contests judge people merely
on the basis of their physical attributes. It's not like
athletics where physical as well as mental conditioning
are responsible for the development of the person. It is
no defence to say that such an event is not sexist
because both men and women are prepared to be
degraded and exploited. That they appear to be just
proves either sex can be ignorant when called upon.
If someone is inclined to wear skimpy clothes and
have water thrown on them for their
friend's/family's/pet's pleasure, then fine. But let's
leave the Pit open for the drinking and camaraderie it
was designed for.
It's difficult to enjoy a few brew when a howling,
beer swilling mass of sexual neanderthals are enjoying
the run of the place.
Thank god they haven't discovered the Lethe. Yet.
'Cause that's where we'll be the day of the contest.
LeVs not get too emotional over Godiva
Having never seen the Lady
Godiva ride, we are most curious to
see one. All the controversy surrounding this event has sparked our
interests.,We have been given to understand that we, as women, should
feel degraded and as yet somehow
we cannot imagine why.
The Godiva ride and the engineers' attitude were given as reasons
for there being so few women in the
engineering faculty. We cannot understand this rationale. We have always found any engineers we have
met treated us with respect and we
have never felt less than equal. If we
were interested in engineering, we
would have no qualms in enrolling.
If those reasons keep the opposite
sex from entering a faculty, perhaps
we as nurses should look at our faculty and the lack of men in it. Could
we be accused of sexist attitudes
and not treating men in our faculty
fairly?
If we were in engineering, we,
too, would refuse to stop the ride
on general principles. We believe in
the freedom of the individual and
that one group should not be allowed to inflict its values on another.
We see the issue as being chiefly an
issue of different values, for not
even all women are of the same opinion about the ride.
In these, troubled times, it seems
like such a trivial issue to give so
much of one's time and attention.
Surely we have more important and
worthy issues to spend our time
with. Perhaps they would not gain
the participant so much limelight,
but they may advance the general
good of more people. It's all a question of priorities.
We remember back to our own
adolescent days when we did madcap things. Many could be called by
others as disrespectful, but then
whenever we tell Polish jokes, et
cetera, aren't we being disrespectful
to others? What then are the real
issues of the question? It may be
time to look at the question objectively instead of reacting emotion
ally. That would be a real step for
women who are always accused of
reacting emotionally. This will prove to others that we are capable of
acting and reacting calmly, cooly,
and efficiently. Before we can
change others, we must first change
ourselves. How often we forget this
while trying to be another's "conscience."

"Have you ever been to Humboldt, Saskatchewan?" Geof Wheelwright asked Gary Brookfield. "I hear
only short people come from there," said Kevin Finnegan, who was promptly punched in the shins by
Julie Wheelwright. "I got the DT's in Humboldt once," said Tom Hawthorn, but Heather Conn had
seen him get the DT's in the Forum with the Canadians down by a goal and on the power play with a
minute left, so she wasn't impressed at all. Elizabeth Morton, who lives geographically in a westerly
direction from Humboldt, suggested that Weybum was a much more exciting piece to be from, to
which Leo Cahill added, "a long way away from." Ed O'Brien complained that Cahill hadn't shown up
today and shouldn't be in the masthead, but Craig Simpson said the ex-Argo coach needed all the help
he could get. Dave Francis said he once flew over Humboldt, but Barry McKay pointed out at that
height one wasn't likely to see too many residents, especially not Peter Menyasz. Mike Mong made the
fatal mistake of wondering if a Rhino was running in Hambotdt, which sent Verne McDonald running
to the airport for a quick change of address. Fortunately for all concerned Hamboidt doesn't have an
airport, so he couldn't land.

We need a mechanism for
public review of research park
Thursday evening's open meeting
on the proposed industrial research
park for UBC created more questions than it resolved. The primary
questions are: Who is paying for the
park? And who is benefiting from
it?
The meeting opened with a game,
led by Dr. Kenny. He said, "I know
of no one actually opposed to Discovery Park. Clap if you are in favor of the park." After some applause, we were asked to clap if we
opposed the park. Out of frustration, I clapped. But this is not a yea
or nay issue!
British Columbia needs to conduct practical research to satisfy its
technological and environmental
needs. Of course! The people who
disagreed with Dr. Kenny and Mr.
Larsen on Thursday were simply insisting that this research, since it is
sponsored by provincial money,
must primarily serve the interests of
society, and be consistent with the
well-being of the community. Thus,
public input into the policy of Discovery Park is a must — yet this
need is either not understood by Dr.
Kenny and Research Park, Inc., or
is contrary to other (corporate?)
concerns. For no mechanism exists
to allow formal public review of the
activities of Research Park, Inc.
In the interests of appropriate
and beneficial research in B.C., I
urge you: support the moratorium
on Discovery Park! Insist on public
hearings to formulate park policy!

Eritrean refugee sponsored
The World University Service
and the student representatives assembly's are attempting to raise
money so that a refugee student can
be enrolled at UBC next fall. The
UBC administration has agreed to
waive tuition fees and the faculty
association has donated funds to
cover the cost of residence. The Canadian government will supply the
refugee's transportation to Canada.
Funds are still needed to cover the
cost of maintaining the refugee during the summer, for books, clothing, and other necessities.
It is hoped that the students of
UBC will support this cause, and a
fund-raising campaign is scheduled
for Jan. 30. With some 20,000 students on this campus, it should be
possible to raise the necessary
money. Any amount of small
change will be appreciated, since it
all adds up. You can help.
•
The perspective refugee is an
Eritrean. He fled his homeland in
1975, because the Ethiopian
government was persecuting students in its campaign against Eritrean
rebels. When he arrived in Somalia
with two friends, he was placed in a
concentration camp for about six
months.
Tito doesn *t have
a leg to stand on
Sorry. Not dead yet. As a matter
of fact I'm ready to embark on a
new career. Me and Leonid are going to play in a revival of The Sunshine Boys at the Bolshoi during the
1980 Olympics. I always wanted an
Oscar just like George's.
I'm practising up doing Long
John Silver in the hospital's children's wing. Now that I've got a leg
to stand on, I can put a stop to
rumors about me decaying.
Marshal Tito
Belgrade, Yugoslavia
In his personal file he states:
"Our stay in Somalia was full of
frustration for we had little right of
movement. . . We requested the
Somali government to allow us to
cross to Kenya. In June 6, 1976, we
arrived in Kenya where to our disappointment, another hardship
awaited us. We were again put in
one of the prisons as 'detainees.'
We were told the government would
consider our case. Here we experienced seven months of hardship before the UN intervened and had us
released, on Dec. 22 of 1976."
As a refugee, this person is without citizenship status. He is currently living in Nairobi, and for the
time being is employed as a French
teacher at a school. His future is uncertain. If we raise enough money
to sponsor him at UBC, he will become a Canadian citizen and become established in Canada.

you are invited to attend WUSC

Tuesday at noon in Buch. 312, or

Once upon a time, the people in a
sleepy big town decided to vote on
how to run their civic elections.
More than half of them voted in
favor of establishing a "ward" system, but the big cheeses of the land
felt that was not enough. So the
people waited, and waited. But
nothing happened until the next
civic election, as all the big cheeses
came out to speak.
To hear an end to this fairy tale,
attend a public meeting on the ward
system Feb. 3 at 2 p.m. in the Oak

Thunderettes looking for first win
Two years ago the Thunderette
basketball team won two league
games. Last year it won one.
But coach Jack Pomfret denies
the two weekend losses to the University of Lethbridge means the natural progression will continue.
"Any game we play we might
win," said Pomfret after UBC ran
its season league record to 12 consecutive losses. "We're starting to
beat teams on the floor, but we're
killing ourselves with fouls."

Soccer 'Birds drop Pegasus
By CRAIG SIMPSON
If Saturday's game against Pegasus at Thunderbird Stadium was
any indication, the UBC Thunderbirds soccer team can look forward
to some tough competition in the
Pacific Northwest League this year.
The Thunderbirds managed to
squeak out a 2-1 win against Pegasus in a game that was dominated
by Pegasus.
The two teams were evenly matched in the first half which ended
with the Thunderbirds ahead 1-0 on
a goal by Tom Wilkinson. "The
ball came to me and I just half-turned, hit it with my left foot, and fortunately it went in," said Wilkinson.
After Wilkinson's goal both
teams failed to capitalize on several
scoring opportunities, although
there weren't many chances as the
teams battled it out in a defensive
struggle.
Gord Johnson of the Thunderbirds and Gary Wilson of Pegasus
hit the showers early after they
scrapped and were promptly red-
carded for their efforts.

Thunderbirds' coach Joe Johnson felt that his player's departure
had an effect on the performance of
his team in the second half. "That
had to change our plans and I had
to rehash them at half-time. I felt
we suffered in that exchange — we
didn't play as well or else they played at lot better," said Johnson.
Pegasus dominated the second
half but managed just one goal despite numerous scoring chances, including two shots which bounced
off the crossbar. Thunderbird Pete
Ruocco scored just seconds after
the Pegasus goal, but this did not
deflate the Pegasus team which continued to press hard for the equalizer until the final whistle.
Thunderbird goaltender John
Giodersleeve also helped foil Pegasus in the second half. He made a
couple of key stops and Johnson
said he was happy with his performance. "I thought John had a good
game, although he had a few moments when I thought he should have
held the ball rather than punched
it," said Johnson.
Johnson was also satisfied with
the Thunderbirds' showing as a
whole, pointing out that it was only
See page 7: SOCCER
end, but Friday night the offence
again consisted mainly of Agnes
Baker, a transfer from last year's
national champion Laurentian University, who had 17 points. Saturday the Pronghorns shut Baker
down but left the others open for
close shots. Guard Jamie Alexander
was high scorer with 10 points.
Pomfret pointed out the team is
now being competitive in both
games of a weekend series, whereas
previously it has been close in the
first game but blown away in the second.
"We are playing back-to-back
games much better. We are now
able to maintain it."
"The players are putting out a
super effort, but they need to work
harder on conditioning," he said.
In men's action over the weekend, the Thunderbirds got back on
the winning track with a pair of
wins over the University of Lethbridge Pronghorns. Friday night
the 'Birds pulled away from the
Pronghorns in the last few minutes
and registered an 84-78 decision,
while on Saturday night the 'Birds
won 78-71.
Friday night the 'Birds were led
by centre Bob Forsyth, who scored
36 points for the second consecutive
game. Rob Cholyk and John Stark
each added 16.
On Saturday night Forsyth was
again the leading scorer with 28
points. John Doughty added 12
points.
The wins left the Thunderbirds
tied for third place in Canada West
with the University of Alberta
Golden Bears with 10 points.
Both teams travel to Saskatchewan this weekend to play a pair of
games, with the Thunderettes still
looking for their first win and the
'Birds looking for a playoff spot.
Killarney ices
women's team
The UBC Thunderettes ice
hockey team went down 3-1 to third
place Killarney Sunday in a fast-
skating Lower Mainland Senior
Women's Ice Hockey League contest at the winter sports centre.
The first period ended scoreless,
but Killarney took the lead in the second period as Nancy Martinuk
connected at 1:06 and Muf Boyer
scored an unassisted goal at the six
minute mark.
Yvonne Magnusson scored
UBC's only goal 11 minutes into second period, while Janice Holt ensured Killarney's win with the lone
third period goal at 7:18.
UBC goalie Kathleen Corbett and
Killarney counterpart Liz Libera
each made 22 saves.
UBC coach Ralph Fraser said the
team, which is currently 4-6-1 in
league play, has responded well to
his emphasis on basics like checking
and snooting, but they still lack
confidence in forward passing.
"They get too impatient clearing
the puck out of our own end," said
Fraser. "If they would take their
time moving it down the ice, we
could organize a more efficient offensive drive."
Fraser added that the team would
benefit greatly from more practices
as limited ice-time and poor turnouts at practice sessions have eroded team strength.
Fraser said he is looking forward
to an upcoming Canada West
women's invitational tournament
Feb. 29-Mar. 1 in Saskatoon.
"There is no regular competition
between the women's varsity
hockey teams in the West," he said.
"It will be interesting to see how we
compare with the other university
teams."
The Thunderettes next game will
be Feb. 10 against the Newton team
at the winter sports centre. Game
time is 4:45 p.m.
Birds split in Alberta
The UBC men's ice hockey team
split a two-game series with league-
leading University of Alberta in Edmonton on the weekend, dropping
a 4-5 decision Saturday, but driving
back for a 2-1 win Sunday.
