 Res rents to rise 18.6%
By MARK BUCKSHON
Most students living in UBC's
residences face an 18.6 per cent
rent increase and probably 20 per
cent food price increase next
September, according to housing
administration documents and a
committee member who has access to other official figures.
Yet housing administration
figures for single-student
residences predict a 13-per-cent
revenue increase next year
because of convention and housing
fee jumps, against a total
operating expense increase of only
eight per cent.
Brian Dougherty, Gage
residences' representative on the
joint residences committee, said in
an interview Thursday the administration wants students to pay
more rent to reduce an accumulated operating deficit and
catch up to inflation.
Dougherty said residence
committee members have
calculated residence students will
have to pay at least $29 extra to
meet the administration's attempt
to reduce its operating deficit.
Money gained through rent increases would be used to reduce an
operating deficit of $168,911 this
year to $66,550 next year.
But student board of governors
member Svend Robinson, said
Thursday the 18.6 per cent increase
will contravene the B.C. Landlord
and Tenant Act, which restricts
rent increases to 10.6 per cent. The
board will vote on the joint committee's recommendations at a
meeting in late February.
The projected rent increases are
more than double last year's 7.2
per cent increase and four times a
3.7 per cent increase two years
ago.
Dougherty said the allied food
price increases are also intended to
accommodate rising costs, but at
least one plan for the additional
money is to renovate the Place
Vanier dining room to make it
more attractive to summer convention customers.
He said the rent increase
proposals were presented  the
i
Grads to cut motion'
The grad class council will rescind a controversial motion granting
grad class funds to undergraduate societies, grad council president
Tom deWolf predicted Thursday.
DeWolf also said after a council meeting that failed to convene for
lack of a quorum that the council will revise its "extremely ambiguous
and unworkable" constitution.
Two council members who threatened to take the motion to student
court have stated they will withdraw the action, he said.
DeWolf said that despite the lack
of a quorum, grad class council
members present at the meeting
had a "fairly thorough discussion"
of the issues raised earlier by
science rep Ron Walls.
"On the basis of the discussion,
the student court clerk will be
notified that there will be no further action," deWolf said.
"Put it this way . . . rebates are
out," he said. "At our next
meeting, council will rescind that
motion."
The motion, made by arts rep
Nancy Carter, was a continuation
of past practice to give money to
undergraduate societies which
apply for the money.
The money would be given to the
societies on the basis of $3 for each
student graduating out of the
faculty or department represented
by the undergraduate society.
However, deWolf said the
practice, as well as that of the grad
class paying for composite pictures requested-by undergraduate
schools and departments, is
"traditional" and not specifically
stated in the constitution.
"Our move at the moment is to
change the constitution," deWolf
said "We're not going to make any
further attempts at rebates."
DeWolf said the grad class last
year paid about $3,500 for the
composites. Then, he said, any
undergraduate society could apply
for a rebate of up to $2 per student.
This amounted to about $6,000, he
said.
That left about $17,000 for gifts to
the university. However, the
constitution says that all expenditures such as the composite
payments have to be approved by a
general meeting of the grad class
or a vote, deWolf said.
"At this time, financing of the
composites is up.in the air," he
said. "We're going to try and get
the money from the administration
for the composites."
DeWolf said he is "fairly optimistic" the administration will
pay for the composites.
DeWolf said the proposed constitutional amendments will result
in an undetermined amount of
money going toward a social
program with the rest going to a
formal university gift and different
projects decided by council.
The changes will also permit
council to determine the criteria
for the projects to be funded by the
grad class. Past practice had the
council compelled to vote on any
project dreamed up by any campus
group, he said.
Skiiers get 2/3 food paid
Bailey gives in
Place Vanier residents will have
two-thirds of the cost of the food for
their ski trip subsidized by food
services, it was learned Thursday.
Rick Thompson, Cariboo House
residence association president,
said Thursday that an agreement
has been reached with food services head Robert Bailey in which
students planning the ski trip pay
1/3 of the food costs with food
services paying the rest.
The students were originally
offered food for the trip only if they
were willing to pay for it because a
question arose as to whether the
ski trip is university-sponsored.
"We'd rather not pay anything,
but I guess two-thirds is better than
nothing," Thompson said.
Thompson said he still feels the
students should not have to pay for
food they have already paid for in
their board fees.
The trip organizers met with the
Place Vanier executive on Wed
nesday and the executive confirmed it was sponsoring the trip.
A letter is being sent off to
Bailey, who, after receiving the
official confirmation, will then
notify the Place Vanier dietician to
prepare the food for the students.
The ski trip is to take place Feb.
7, 8 and 9.
committee last week. A document
about food prices, not intended to
be released to the committee until
this Monday, was slipped from
food services director Robert
Bailey at a meeting this Wednesday.
The joint residences' committee
includes student representatives
from each UBC residence and
several administration officials.
The committee must approve
increases before these are
presented to the board.
Dougherty said the committee
has  been  asked  to  approve  a
slightly lower rent increase for
double rooms because they are
comparatively unattractive to
students. Double rooms would
increase by about 14.7 per cent, he
said. Married students living in
Acadia and Fort camps would not
have to pay any rent increase.
Dougherty said he couldn't give
specific figures about proposed
food price increases but said they
would be "over 20 per cent."
Current residence meal ticket
prices cost $2.01 a day.
He said the document stolen
from Bailey asks for money to
renovate the Place Vanier dining
room to accommodate conventions
"and the cost will have to be borne
by students."
Dougherty declined to release
the document but said it shows food
prices are "going to go up a lot."
"It was mentioned (in the
document) that it (the dining
room) is unacceptable to standards to which convention guests
should be presented," he said.
Bailley said in an interview
Thursday he didn't want to comment on the food price increases

Illiteracy university's fault — Jewett
Pauline Jewett, Simon Fraser
University administration
president says that universities
should be blamed for a deficiency
of students' reading and writing
skills.
Jewett told The Ubyssey
Thursday that communications
between universities and primary
and secdonary schools are lacking.
However, Jewett said she is not
aware of any serious problems at
SFU and has asked SFU deans to
look into the literacy of their
students and report back to her.
Meanwhile, UBC administration
president Walter Gage said
Thursday he agrees with Jewett
that a lack of communication could
be a reason for poor student
literacy.
"There used to be a resentment
of university people," Gage said.
"The university used to get accused of trying to dictate
curriculum (to secondary
teachers)."
Gage said the influence of
television and radio may have
contributed to the problem.
"In this particular time I suppose people have not given enough
emphasis to traditional skills and
have gone in. the opposite direction," he said.
At the University of Victoria,
English department head David
Jeffrey said Thursday that
students can't comprehend the
lectures they sit through because
their vocabulary is so limited.
The literacy of some students at
UVic is so poor they can't read
their own textbooks, he said. Page 2

because    he   hasn't    formally
presented them to the committee
yet.
He said the increases wouldn't be
as large as 20 per cent but refused
to say how large they would be.
Bailey said the proposed
renovations of the Place Vanier
dining room "have to be done."
"The recommendations are
valid and on a very solid basis," he
said.
Housing administration director
Leslie Rohringer could not be
reached for comment Thursday.
Robinson said he believes the
university administration cannot
claim it is a non-profit society and
therefore is not exempt from the
Landlord and Tenant Act.
However, Dougherty said he
thinks the UBC administration can
appeal to rentalsman Barrie Clark
to increase the rents beyond 10.6
per cent because residences are
currently losing more than $100,000
a year.
Robinson also said he plans to
ask the board to support a request
for government-subsidized
residence room and board.
Dougherty said he is satisfied
that housing costs are rising ancra
substantial rent increase is
justified but said "we haven't been
able to find what the specifics
are."
He said the large-scale financial
breakdowns received by the
committee don't show possible
waste and inefficiency in the
residence operation.
The budget figures show the bulk
of residence funds are being used
to pay mortgages, at $1,277,934 this
year. The mortgage repayment
figure, which counts for about 50
per cent of this year's $2,029,636
operating budget, won't increase
next year.
Largest projected increase in the
budget is the category "other
expenses" which will go from
$84,725 this year to $107,966 next
year —a 27.4 per cent increase.
However Dougherty said this'
category is compared to the others.
Wages are projected to go to
$652,537 from $549,443. If the
housing administration doesn't
plan to increase the size of its staff,
these figures reflect the administration's assumptions about
how much members of the
Canadian Union of Public Employees will win in their next
contract.
Utilities are projected to increase to $305,876 from $275,625
(14.3 per cent) and repairs and
maintenance to $305,876 from
$275,625 (10.9 per cent).
Dougherty said the joint
residence committee will meet at
least twice next week, on Monday
and Wednesday, to try to get more
specific figures and find ways to
trim the rent increases.
"All we do is sort of attest the
figures and see that they are not
spending money in places not
worth it," he said.
He said a meeting will be held in
Gage to discuss the increases
Monday evening and representatives for other residences will also
hold meetings.
B.C. grants and loans bigger
'Bad facilities
don't affect
teaching'
By CHRIS GAINOR
The standard of instruction at
UBC's medical school remains
high despite the undesirable state
of the school's clinical facilities,
various sources told The Ubyssey,
Thursday.
"We have maintained a high
standard of teaching," medical
school dean Dr. David Bates said.
Bates emphasized that the major
problem facing the med school is
the overburdened clinical teaching
facilities at Vancouver General
Hospital, St. Paul's Hospital and
Shaughnessy Hospital.
The inadequacy of these
facilities led to the decisions of the
Royal College of Physicians and
Surgeons of Canada, and of the
Association of Canadian Medical
Colleges to grant the UBC medical
school a two-year probationary
accreditation instead of the
regular five-year accreditation.
Bates issued a report this week
to the B.C. Medical Centre which
revealed the problems facing the
medical school.
Bates criticized a headline in
Thursday's Ubyssey which implied
that UBC's medical school is the
"worst in Canada."
He said that only the clinical
facilities are in poor condition in
comparison to other med schools
and that the headline was a misinterpretation of the facts.
"There are definite needs for
improvement, but the level of
instruction is good," Howard
Aldous, medicine undergraduate
society president, said Thursday.
The society has sent a letter to
the medicine faculty supporting
the faculty's actions on the
problems in the clinical facilities,
but has taken no other action, he
said.
"The existing facility at Vancouver General Hospital is not
geared for teaching," Aldous said.
Aldous and other med students
interviewed by The Ubyssey
agreed that the teaching at the
medical school at UBC was of high
quality but facilities in the hospital
teaching facilities are inadequate.
Sam Gooldy, medicine 2, a
student representative to the
medicine faculty executive, said
UBC medical students placed
highest overall in last year's
licencing board examinations of
the Association of Canadian
Medical Colleges.
He praised the efforts of clinical
instructors, many of whom work as
much as 80 hours per week under
"trying conditions."
The workload for the instructors
has risen sharply since the class
size was increased two years ago
from 60 students to 80.
B.C. students received four
times as much money in grants
and loans this year over last, a
provincial government student aid
official said Thursday.
Student services co-ordinator
Dean Clarke said in an interview
from Victoria that the number of
Canada Student Loan applications
also increased by 75 per cent this
year.
Loan   money   comes   from   a
federal fund while grants are doled
out at the will of the provincial
government. Clarke said the B.C.
program is now on a par with the
other top-paying provincial
programs.
He said Nova Scotia students
must take out an average of $1,200
in Canada Student Loans to make
up the difference between their
costs and provincial student
grants.
In Ontario students need borrow
only $800 while in B.C. the average
is $752, he said.
"We used to have the worst
program until the NDP rectified
things," he said. "Now with Ontario and Manitoba we have the
most generous  grant  program."
He said 25 to 30 per cent of B.C.
students received some form of aid
last year. There are no figures yet
available for this year.

Indian violence predicted
By MARCUS GEE
Outbreaks of violence by Indians
are likely this summer unless the
Canadian government and big
corporations leave Indians alone to
develop a new society, an Indian
leader said Thursday.
Robert Manuel of the Union of
B.C. Chiefs told a group of 20 in the
school of social work that Indians
will repeat incidents like last
year's Cache Creek uprising unless
private corporations stop robbing
the Indian people of their natural
resources and unless the government stops trying to assimilate
them.
"I can predict one hell of a hot
summer," he said.
Manuel, son of Native Indian
Brotherhood president George
Manuel, large resource companies
take the attitude that native
peoples are only "a thorn in the
side." This has created
frustrations leading to outbursts of
violence like at Cache Creek, he
said.
He said resource-exploiting
companies should return some of
the country's abundant resources
to native peoples so they can
develop a new society based on
traditional values but changed to
adapt to the conditions of the
modern world.
Manuel said Indians could
pursue  a   traditional   lifestyle

supported by commercial enterprises.
Crafts like bead work could be
subsidized by profits from
ownership of a hotel in Vancouver.
Native communities could use
trees, now owned by companies
like MacMillan Bloedel, to build
their own homes in place of
government-build housing.
Manuel said the Indian Affairs
department intervention is aimed
at doing away with the Indian
reserves and culture to assimilate
them into white society.
"The direction we have to go now
is toward turning our backs on
outside influences. The only help
the non-Indian can do is to leave us
alone to develop in our own
direction."
Manuel is the co-ordinator of a
community development program
established by the Union of B.C.
Chiefs to teach people in Indian
communities to become self-
reliant.
Manuel said he hopes to teach
native people the traditional
economy of sharing and help them
develop pride in their race and
heritage.
Manuel helped organize a recent
peaceful demonstration at the
legislature in Victoria, which he
said was intended to show Indians
they can change attitudes and
polices.
He said Indian pride is growing
and   Indians   are   beginning   to
discover their identity as a people.
Indians are also beginning to
■ organize more effectively, ac-
! cording to Manuel.
He said the Union of B.C. Chiefs,
founded in 1969 in Kamloops, is
made up of 15 hereditary or elected
chiefs from district councils
around the province.
These leaders sit on the Chiefs'
council, directed by three
executive members who form a
policy-making body.
The Indian Affairs department
cannot provide Indians with their
rights and independence, he said.
Indian Affairs department
bureaucracy cannot satisfy the
needs and wishes of the Indian
people according to Manuel, who
once worked for the department in
Ottawa.
"The Indian Affairs department
taught me how to oppress the Indian people.
"Now that people have become
aware they want something done,
but Indian Affairs can't provide
what the people want," he said.
Manuel said Indians cannot rely
on government bureaucracies, so
they must fight for rights and
better living conditions.
"As long as the drop-out rate
(among Indian high school
students) is 95 per cent; as long as
we have more than 50 per cent
unemployment; as long as we have
people in penal institutions, I will
always consider we are fighting."
Gear slate floats
to AMS polls
canned laughter
By RALPH MAURER
A Zeppeljn shuttle service
connecting UBC with Richmond
and Burnaby could be a reality if a
tongue-in-cheek slate calling itself
the Students for a Civilized Alma
Mater Society wins the Feb. 5 AMS
election.
When nominations closed noon
Thursday, only this slate and four
independents had filed nomination
papers to challenge the two other
slates in the running, the Students'
Coalition and the Student Unity
slate.
The independents are Phillip
McCutchah, commerce 2, running
for co-ordinator; Leonard Janot,
commerce 2, external affairs and
Grant McRadu, arts 2, and Roy
Sarai, commerce 2, both running
for ombudsperson.
Sarai is current ombudsperson
after having won the position by
acclamation in the February, 1974
AMS elections.
The Students for a Civilized AMS
slate consists entirely of civil
engineering students and is led by
Geoff Bevan-Pritchard, their
presidential candidate.
Others on the slate are John

Every columnist saves the ideas that never
15 quite make it to become columns for an
occasional grab bag right? Well since none of
my ideas have made it, I've got plenty to
choose from. Ladies and gentlemen I sincerely hope, from the bottom of my rectum,
you enjoy the first instalment of DEBRIS. I
didn't.
DEBRIS — I see Jake van der Kamp, a
foreign correspondent with The Ubyssey for
37 years, is going'mto politics with the Student
Unity Party. Van der Kamp got the job as The
Ubyssey's foreign correspondent due to his
writing skills, animal imitations, enormous
buttocks and the fact he was the only staffer
who couldn't speak English.
I ran into Jake the other day at an all-
candidates tulip sale and cheese eating
contest. "I need politics," van der Kamp said
through a mouthful of gouda which he hadn't
bothered to unwrap.
"Politics needs me. That's the way I see it.
And you can quote me on that. What did I just
say?"
Van der Kamp, known as the Fly-flecked
Dutchman, displayed tremendous organizing
ability as a member of the Dutch underground in the Second World War by getting the entire population of Holland to live
beneath the earth until 1945. So frustrated
were the Germans they never noticed.
Van der Kamp's tenacity was awesome
and, refusing to believe the war was over
because he could still get Beethoven's Fifth
Symphony on his transistor radio, he didn't
come out of the tulip fields until 1959. And
even then he dove into a canal refusing to
surface until 1967.
I also noticed (nothing gets past me,
especially full page color ads with almost
naked people) that former Ubyssey co-ed
Mogul Sasges (that's co-editor) and current
photographer though sometimes she prefers
raisins — Caprice Savaria are getting
married.
When asked it would be a small or large
wedding Sasges replied, "Big, of course, at
least 12 shotguns."
I remember walking into the newsroom of
my first paper, The Roberts Bank Account,
back in the Depression — last month — where
Sasges was the editor.
"So you think you're a reporter, eh?" he
barked (he suffered under the illusion he was
a dog until the age of 11).
"So you think you can write, eh? So you call
yourself a newsman, eh? Well, where's the
story I sent you to get, eh?"
I spoke out in my defence. "Somebody up
here order a pizza?"

Smith has said he will not return
to UBC next September.
Obviously influenced by Mr.
Peanut, Vincent Trasov's unsuccessful but heroic mayoralty
campaign of last November, the
slate promises a Zeppelin linkup
with UBC from the airport and the
Pacific National Exhibition with
an airfield behind SUB, bicycle and
bumbershoot transportation pools,
a trolley-bus system for the
university, a multi-million budget
and turning the grassy area in
front of SUB into a polo ground.
Members of the slate profess to
be disturbed by the declining effectiveness of the AMS and its
failure to identify key issues and
provide leadership, according to
campaign literature.
Smith said he thinks the
Civilization slate would draw votes
away from the other slates running.
"We'll be swept into office on a
wave of student support," he said.
Students' Coalition, whose slate
won last year's AMS election, is
running Gary Moore, president;
Johari de Rooy, vice-president;
Greg Heenan, treasurer; Rodney

of Jake van der Kamp, president;
Dave Van Blarcom, vice-
president; Dave Theessen,
treasurer; Lynne Batten, co-ordinator; Jennifer Fuller, internal
affairs; Stew Savard, external

Buildings, some artists
and a pair
of cement overshoes
CCJ>
CD
Facilities, which is a fancy name for
buildings and the contents thereof, have
been cropping up quite frequently in the
news of late.
The Asian studies centre, the medical
facilities and the law building have been
right up there in the old headlines. And,
economical souls that we are, we thought
we'd polish them all off in one editorial.
Therefore:
The med school should get interim
facilities rather than cutting the already low
enrolment, which allows it to turn out
conveniently few doctors and stack the law
of supply and demand on the side of
highly-paid physicians.
Also, the law building is odious and the
architect should be given a free pair of
overshoes of his very favorite cement and
asked to walk across False Creek.
But no more money should be spent on
the building, which has already consumed a
good chunk of dollars, for structural
alterations. Instead, the fine arts students
could contribute their masterpieces for a
continually changing display to liven up the
walls.
And finally, now that the Asian studies
centre is started it might be a good idea to
finish it. We don't need our own version of
the Spadina expressway in the middle of
campus.
One additional point — the law school
incident shows what happens when the
students, profs and staff who have to work
in the buildings aren't consulted on design.
So undergraduate, graduate or faculty
associations and unions should work to get
final say on building design. All groups are
obviously responsible enough to take cost
factors into consideration.
And finally —about buildings themselves.
It's really a bad mistake to keep building
so many facilities out here on the peninsula,
since it tends to act as a centralizing factor
for the campus, keeping it from moving
downtown and into the community.
Therefore, when future building
proposals come up, it might be an idea of
thinking about how department and
faculties could be decentralized along with
their facilities so both students and the
community benefit.
It might be an idea for instance, wherv
rehabilitation medicine finally gets money to
leave their grungy huts, to use the money to
attach new facilities for them to downtown
hospitals and treatment centres.
And that's our editorial on buildings.
Anyone wanna know what we think of
motherhood?

Winter works
held up; pool
funding delayed
ByREEDCLARKE
Federal financing for the
proposed covered swimming pool
is being held up by the federal
treasury board, Alma Mater
Society president Gordon
Blankstein said Thursday.
Speaking before a council
meeting held in the SUB conversation pit, Blankstein said the
delay of the winter worses projects
is the main tie-up.
In an interview Thursday, pool
committee member Doug Aldridge
said the whole matter of government spending is being considered
by the federal government and the
winter works program is being
held up as a result.
Aldridge said the pool committee
is seeking $500,000 from Sport
Canada and $2 million from the
winter works program.
He said the pool committee is
now beginning to look for alternate
sources of government funding in
case the winter works program is
cancelled.
In other business Ron Walls,
council science representative,
told council that he and Frank
Tichler, arts 4, will be taking action in student court against the
grad class council.
Walls and Tichler contest that
the grad council must receive the
approval of grad class students to
spend any money.
In a Jan. 23 meeting, the grad
council voted to give $3 of the $7
grad class fees to undergraduate
societies which request the money.
Council also approved a motion
by Stefan Mochnacki to declare
Feb. 19-28 a period of university-
wide emphasis on the issue of
world hunger.
yDuring this time the AMS
speakers committee,  with the
support of other campus groups,
will be holding a conference on
food and population problems
entitled "Bread for the World."
Council also heard a request
from Mike MacLeod, representing
the Greenpeace Foundation, for a
donation toward the Greenpeace's
upcoming project to interfere with
whaling fleets in the North Pacific
this summer.
MacLeod said the project includes sailing Greenpeace ships in
front of whaling vessels to interfere with their hunt and stunts
such as the one planned by a
Prince George resident who intends to parachute onto a Russian
whaler.
The foundation will also be
carrying out scientific experiments in whale communications, he said.
Victoria flautist Paul Horn and
possibly singer Joan Baez will be
taking part in the communications
experiments.
Council voted to give the
Greenpeace Foundation $500 out of
special projects' remaining $1,500.
For the second week in a row,
council listened to a debate between the B.C. Federation of Labor
and the Teamsters union over the
California grape boycott.
Despite protests by grad rep
Dave Fuller that council should not
be involving itself in a fight between unions, council voted to
support the boycott.
In the vote 10 members abstained.
A Texas-born Chicano worker
representing the Teamsters said
the United Farm Workers union
led by Cesar Chavez allegedly
portrayed the farm workers as
dumb, illiterate Mexicans.
Demo should show
building height
A perimeter fence and spar poles
should be built on the proposed site
of the new library data processing
centre, the lone student member of
the centre's planning and siting
committee said Thursday.
Ron Walls said the fence would
give students an opportunity to see
how much space the centre would
occupy if built on the controversial
site to the northwest of SUB.
The spar poles would be the
same height as the building which
has been described by administration proponents as "low
profile."
The siting committee had
originally given the SUB site high
priority but when head librarian
Basil Stuart-Stubbs took the
proposal to Alma Mater Society
council in September, it was
unanimously rejected.
Council objected then that the
site would cause too much inconvenience to students walking to
and from SUB. Five alternative
sites have since been chosen.
Walls warned last week that the
committee is likely to choose the
SUB site unless there is a massive
amount of student protest.
Walls said then that the committee is not concerned with the
esthetics of the site.
The committee meets today at 2
p.m. in Hut 0-4.
Centre strapped
Skyrocketing construction costs and a shortage of funds have been
blamed for the possible halt of work on the Asian Studies Centre.
And, in an effort to raise the $1.6 million necessary for completion of
the project, fund raising committee member Joseph Whitehead will
carry the appeal to Ottawa in two weeks.
John Howes, associate Asian Studies prof and also a fund raiser, said
Thursday that the committee hopes to coax more money out of the
provincial government if the federal government comes through.
The centre is scheduled for completion in May, 1976 but organizers
say construction will halt in March of this year if no more funds are
forthcoming.
To date, the fund raising committee has raised $1.9 million for the
centre.
If completed, the centre will be used to host some of the Habitat '76
conference activities on food ahd housing crises.
He claimed the UFW handled the
workers in a dictatorial fashion.
"We were never given a choice,
we were never asked if we wanted
to join the UFW," he said.
Ron Johnson, B.C. Federation of
Labor representative, said the
UFW is saying "let's have a secret
ballot vote supervised by a neutral
party."
Johnson said the American
national labor act does not cover
the agricultural workers and
unions are therefore not required
to hold secret ballots.
He said the only way to solve the
problem is to hold a secret ballot
asking the workers to decide which
union they want to belong to but the
Teamsters refuse to do this.

B.C. wants change in aid
By BERTON WOODWARD
The provincial government
wants to see all sources of student
financial aid consolidated info one
program, the B.C. member of the
federal-provincial task force
examining the subject said
Thursday.
Dean Clarke, co-ordinator of
student services for the provincial
education department, said in an
interview from Victoria that
students most currently chop
through a forest of different
agencies providing student aid.
Clarke was expanding on
comments he made Wednesday
about the task force after conferring Thursday with task force
co-chairman G. M. Davies of
Manitoba's education department.
Clarke had said Wednesday he
could not discuss specfic ideas the
task force has heard without first
talking to Davies. Clarke remained
reluctant Thursday to go into
•Manitoba's education department.
Clarke had said Wednesday he
could not discuss specific ideas the
task force has heard without first
talking to Davies. Clarke remained
reluctant Thursday to go into detail
but enlarged the discussion on
some points.
The task force was set up last
June by the National Council of
Education Ministers and the
federal Secretary of State's
department to report on possible
changes or restructuring of the
student aid program in Canada.
The group is expected to draft its
report in April.
Clarke said student aid
programs exist in 10 to 15 different
federal agencies, including Canada
Manpower, the labor department,
Canada Council and.the military
Reserve Officer Training Plan.
These various programs are in
addition to the Canada Student
Loan program in which students
apply for money on the basis of
need and receive a mixture of the
federal loan and provincial grant
funds.
Students often "luck out" in
gaining money from one of the
programs after wading through a
number of them, Clarke said.
No outright disagreement has
been expressed by other provinces
on the merger idea, Clarke said. "I
would say they believe there
should be some co-ordination."
He said no firm decisions have
Big bucks
for students
in 1974
Students responding to a
registration week questionnaire
earned a total of more than $23
million last summer.
Figures released by the
registrar's office also show that
women saved a higher percentage
of their earnings but, because they
are paid less than men, saved a
smaller amount in dollars.
Women undergraduates
reported average earnings of
$1,480 while men earned an
average of $2,190. Earnings increased an average of $511 for
women and $646 for men compared
to earlier surveys.
Women saved 65.7 per cent of
their earnings, or $862, while men
saved 61.2 per cent or an average
Of $1,212.
Of students responding, 96.6 per
cent found employment and
worked for an average period of
13.4 weeks.
The survey also indicated that
83.2 per cent of students responding were available for work in the
summer of 1974. Total earnings
were $23,076,200.
been taken yet on any of the
questions confronting the task
force. Much of the discussion has
been in general terms, Clarke said.
However, he said he and committee chairman Davies are "both
thinking it's about time we as
provinces became more specific
and started to firm up our objectives."
This would come at the task
force's next meeting Feb. 13, he
said.
Along with the consolidation,
B.C. would also like to see a
"definition or common philosophy
of why we give aid to students", he
said.
Some of the programs give
money on the basis of need, while
others — like Manpower's funding
of training for skills in short supply
— give the same amount to anyone
who applies, he said.
Even the further question exists
about whether students deserve all
the money they receive, although
this is unlikely to be solved by the
task force, he said.
"It may sound radical, but you
could ask why we should give
students $3,000 when we have old-
age pensioners who have struggled
along for very low wages and invested all that time in the country,
trying to end out their years with a
minimum standard of living," he
said. On another issue, Clarke
said some provinces are at odds on
whether part-time students should
be encouraged.
B.C. simply makes a blanket
statement of philosophy that
covers all students, he said.
B.C. says "anyone who wants a
post-secondary education should
not be denied it because they can't
afford it," he said.
Clarke said that to some extent
the provinces are waiting for Ottawa "to indicate its hand" at the
task force meetings.
"They're really holding the
trump card in this whole deal
because they release the funds,"
he said.
However, Ottawa is not thereby
controlling the discussion because
"there's no way they're going to
introduce something the provinces
don't want," he said.
In any case, funding of the aid
program is a secondary consideration for the task force since
they are charged with setting up a
structure no matter how much
money is channelled through it, he
said.
The task force will likely produce
some guidelines on who should
receive aid money, since there is
unlikely to be a recommendation
that all students, regardless of
need, should receive assistance, he
said.
Clarke said ideally a needy
student should simply be given a
straight grant. But deciding who is
needy is "like figuring out which
pony is going to come in first at the
race track," he said.
That could remain the central
question for the task force to
decide if members decide the
traditional system should be
retained, he said.

Woyzeck excellent job — really
By ERIC IVAN BERG
The Dorothy. Somerset Studio,
located kitty-corner behind the
Frederick Wood Theatre, is cosy,
intimate and quite well suited to
minor theatrical masterpieces like
Woyzack, its latest offering.
George Buchner's caricature-
laden play of the same name is the
marvel being mentioned but
merely its dramatic vehicle. For it
is the production and its energy
level as a dynamic entity that
made the play the qualified success it was.
M.A. Thesis director Gordon
McCall has successfully managed
to wrangle a large and youthful
cast into tackling this intense
drama of love, passion, and
possession. To do this he co-
authored a new translation from
the original German script with
Prof. Loeffler of the theatre
department. Then he had his set
designed by another theatre
student, Dave Fisher, as a multi-
platformed acting gymnasium
with metal pylon plumbing and a
carnival atmosphere. All set to go,
he gaily scattered his sold-out
audiences (80 to 100 was all that
could squeeze in) all over this
many-level acting arena in a sort
of 'kheatre-among-the-ping-pong-
tables."
Woyzeck in its newly translated
rendition is a powerfully wound
psychodrama of the 19th century.
Private last class Woyzeck of an
old line rifle regiment is the last
clod in the military pecking order.
And everybody picks on the
troubled young soldier as if he
were merely a carnival monkey
dangling on a string.
A poor whore Marie has fallen in
love with him and had his child.
She is a pure creature of passion
and loves many other men for their
uniforms just'as they lay her for
her body.
But it is the whole production,
the audience's intimate proximity,
and several energetic performances moving beyond the
weight of the characters that really
carry the elements of the play.
Jerry Wasserman tests the role of
the guinea pig Woyzeck with such a
burning intensity and skill that his
eyes blaze in the low key lighting of
the tragedy. Netty Wild's portrayal
of Marie was one of wonderful,
wanton joy — a dusky wicked
woman who was as Woyzeck
moans: "Marie, you're as
beautiful as sin."
I must not forget to mention
Nicola Cavendish's quite convincing idiotic blubbering as Karla
the village idiot with her Cassandra-like prophecies. Several other
younger actors could similarly be
singled out for their individual and
collective energy and enthusiasm.
Further extensions to be pointed
out are the liberal changes in the
new script from the original
Buchner manuscript. Karla's role
in the Somerset production is
actually the incorporation of two
roles, the Idiot and the Grandmother, as found in the original.
Also the original tragedy has
Woyzeck drown himself in a pond
with his murder weapon. Yet
McCall aborts such an obligatory
ending and has the cast step out of
their roles  and walk  off  stage
leaving the drained Wasserman
standing in a catatonic stupor. As
they leave in their sneakers and
blue jeans the cast gives Woyzeck
a patronizing pat on the back, "A
really wonderful murder Woyzeck
— you did an excellent job!" And
they all did.
Sleuth spoofs detectives
in lewd novels, that is
By ROBERT DIOTTE
Sleuth is both a witty and intelligent spoof of the detective
mystery genre and a study of the
obsessions and moral turpitude of
middle-aged Andrew Wyke, a
physically atrophic man, alive
only, in the fantastic projections of
his mind; fantasies which
frequently indulge in the lewd and
the grotesque.
Sleuth boasts several unexpected
twists in the plot which not only
keep the audience in a state of
animated suspense thereby
remaining true to its genre, but
provide some humor in the face of,
the dire actualities given the
audience. In fact, coupled with
some brilliant dialogue, it is the
play's ability to surprise right to
the final lights which stays with the
audience.

Guy soul-rock individual art
By PAT ANGLY
Vancouver fans packed the Commodore Ballroom
last Thursday for the opening of the Buddy Guy-
Junior Wells Show.
The show started with a good rock-and-roll-boogie
backup band, but nobody danced to their music. The
audience had come for some of that good ole rhythm
and blues and nothing else would do.
When the Buddy Guy Band finally came on stage,
minus the two stars, the tempo started to pick up.
The band is a tight, well-coordinated group who
play a type of "soul-rock." By the end of their first
number the dance floor was packed. Buddy Guy,
though, waited until just the right moment, when
the crowd was on the verge of impatience, before he
made his appearance.
When Guy walked on stage, everything quieted
down to an expectant hush. He didn't play his guitar
with his teeth, slide it across the mike stand, or do
any of the other tricks he had picked up in the early
days of his career. But Buddy Guy played the blues!
His style has been compared to B. B. King, Otish
Rush and some of the other blues greats. But like
them, Guy has developed his own particular twists,
his own variations, which give his music that individual touch that keeps the blues fans coming
back for more.
Guy played a few songs — highlighted by his
guitar solos piercing through the crowd — and then
the show peaked as Junior Wells came on and added
his harmonica to complete the sound. Wells admits
himself that his "harp" playing was developed from
that of the late Sonny Boy Williamson. He plays a
very vibrant harmonica. In my opinion, however,
Wells strongest point is vocals. Though Buddy Guy
did some of the singing, it was Wells who really sang
the blues. He wailed and moaned 'cause his baby
left him, and cried out to the world that it wasn't
gonna get him down.
Wells' vocals, backed by Guy's stabbing guitar
and the surprisingly good tenor sax of another band
member, A. C. Reed, made for an evening of really
fine rhythm and blues.
The only complaint that anyone could make would
be that the show did not last long enough. But that
can be said about any truly good performance. And
this certainly was one.
effective and original use of such
dramatic conventions as the love
triangle which includes the jealous
husband and the romantic, though
financially impoverished, lover.
One losing a woman the audience
never sees the other winning her.
The play lays their confrontation
bare in their games with death and
the humiliation of each other,
games begun by Andrew Wyke and
forced to three logical conclusions
by the younger man, Milo Tindle.
In its enactment, the play strips
the clothing from racial bigotry,
intellectual pedantry, elitism, and
the centuries old human inducement "to get even" — a
psychological response which
seems deep rooted in the historical
psyche.
You may recall the movie Sleuth
starring Laurence Olivier and
Michael Caine a few years back
which saw both actors nominated
for academy awards. If you saw
the movie, the play will certainly
interest you as the nucleus from
which the movie came. But, more
than that, a comparison of the two
reveals the basic differences
between theatre and film.
In fact, the greater immediacy of
the Arts Club production is reinforced with the use of a stage area
which enters, to some extent, the
seating for the audience. And the
intensity of the drama in the
theatrical experience, it seems to
me, is of a higher degree than in
the film.

THE      UBYSSEY
Friday, January 31, 1975 PF    IN T E RVa
This week staffer Grade Eng talks with dancer Linda
Rabin, a Montreal native who having established an
overseas reputation for modern dance interpretations
is now teaching and choreographing locally.
By GRACE ENG
Over half a century ago, modern dance
first began in America by ballet dancers
who imitated Eastern and Oriental dances.
Its first murmur of life was also nurtured by
a rebellion against the strict and set style of
classical ballet.
Because of the energy of a few young
dancers, Martha Graham being one of them,
and a need for a more relaxed form of
dance, modern dance developed and
blossomed to the extent and importance that
it commands today.
Learning modern dance is a chance to
experience again the excitement and energy
that was the catalytic force behind the
original movement.
Linda Rabin, teacher, choreographer,
young, vital and aggressive, not only
teaches her students to dance but infects
them with the same high energy enthusiasm
for the medium.
Originally from Montreal, she has studied
dance since childhood. This led her to
continue dance studies in New York where
she majored in the Martha Graham and
Jose Limon techniques, both of whom are
celebrated modern dancers.
She explains, "In modern dance, a
technique is the choreographer's original
style which has evolved to the point of
developing scientifically into a technique."
Martha Graham's dramatic style for
example, is so distinctive it has become an
esthetic trademark.
During a four-year stay in New York, she
did concert performances of works by Jose
Limon, Anna Sokolow, Martha Graham, and
Doris Humphrey. It was after a move to
Israel when she began to teach dance which
was influenced by two things.
"Generally when you work as a dancer,
you live from day to day. It is necessary to
do something else to support yourself . . .
and being Canadian I could not get a work
permit to work in the United States."
For five years in Israel, she taught extensively and choreographed several works
in different parts of the country. She also
taught the Limon and Graham techniques to
the internationally known Tatsheve company.
It was during this time that her own
technique evolved.
"It is hard to describe my own technique
that I've developed. I know it's somewhat
classical. It's definitely something that has
evolved out of my training with three
people: Martha Graham, Jose Limon and
Anna Sokolow. Anna is a very creative
choreographer and she has a way of getting
you out of you. She had a very great impact
on me, especially on my creative work, and
I know that her kind of energy and her
demand for giving all you've got affected
me very much. Jose's work affected me
very much in his breathiness and the feeling
for space that he has. His work is very —
very free, it feels almost classical and very
pure. He uses space and breath, fall and
suspension, and it feels very natural. It feels
like spring.
Graham's work on the other hand, is
heavier and harder. More dramatic and
theatrical. All of us have some of these
qualities in us and I think I've just pulled out
quality of Graham, the quality of Limon,
and the quality of Anna that were there in
me anyway.
What I want to get out of people is an
energy, an aliveness and a body
awareness."
For someone to free himself beyond the
limitations of muscles so that he can be
moulded, moved and shaped by his own
creativity requires intense effort and
rigorous exercise. Bending, stretching,
twisting, turning.
"You've got to be in top physical shape to
dance."
Rabin also believes that dance as a per-
sonal creative expression must have personal relevance.
"When modern dance began, it started
among other reasons, as a rebellion against
classical ballet and all of a sudden it wasn't
necessary for you to be pretty or beautiful or
entertaining, but it could be political, it can
tell something, it could be creative."
"Modern dance wanted to get back to the
basics of walking, running, and jumping, to
be real as opposed to classical ballet which
was standing around on pointed shoes which
didn't relate to people in their everyday
lives. Telling stories about swans and things
which had nothing to do with the social
situations of the world, or anything."
Anything in modern dance is possible. It is
not a style or a set thing like ballet. "The
whole point of it is to move, to use your body,
to know how your body speaks, and to move
accordingly."
This is perhaps one reason why modern
dance appeals to a wide spectrum of people.
Dance in America has been taken down off
its exalted pedestal.
It is an activity for everyone, even hardened taxi drivers. It is a means of exploring, rediscovering, and further expanding the limits of oneself.
After being abroad for many years, Linda
has returned to Canada to share her
knowledge and to advocate modern dance.
Currently she is teaching classes for the
contemporary dance club of UBC, which
meets on Tuesday and Friday afternoons in
the SUB partyroom.
She is also substituting for Anna Wyman
(a well known local dancer) while she is on
tour around Canada.
RABIN ... dance is a physical strain.
This week: Linda Rabin
Bach bogged, Gershwin high
By ANDRE PARADIS
Gershwin's Concerto in F was the apparent
highlight of last Saturday evening's VSO opening
concert in the CHQM Great Composers series. Lorin
Hollander, the guest artist, displayed this spirited
piano work very successfully. His quick, heavy yet
fluid touch underscored Gershwin's ambivalent stand
between popular and serious music at least as well as
most of the recorded interpretations.
. He was ably supported by Kazuyoshi Akiyama's
forces. Vancouver's orchestra, not renowned as a
jazz (or jazzy) supporter, was spirited and bombastic. Together, the soloist and orchestra brought a
good portion of the audience to their feet for an excited ovation.
Hollander had started with Bach's marvellous
keyboard Concerto in D Minor. This was obviously
not the pianist's best, and the heavy playing style
bogged the Bach down with overworking. The
dynamics were aptly steady, but monotonously so.
The bravura spirit that would be fine for the Gershwin was inept here.
Orchestrally, the mushy tone of the reduced forces
sounded   pleasantly   consistent.   The   work   has
elsewhere fared less well.
Akiyama's ample (not expansive) conducting in
the opening Mozart Symphony No. 40 in G Minor
contained the spirit of the first movement's sparkle
and wit. The andante movement was clearly defined,
the whole instantly shaped and evenly sharp and
limpid. Both final movements seemed more perfunctory, but it was to be an evening of agreeable
music and this Mozart proved to be a smooth-edged
opening.
After the Gershwin, the orchestra ended the
evening with the brouhaha Bartok opus, The
Miraculous Mandarin. Pentatonic morsels are
always enticingly sprinkled through any piece. The
movements of this dance suite (extracted by the
composer from his ballet of the same name) varied in
texture rising and falling with the pentatonic theme
of the Mandarin. It was a very alert and active work
with a vivid crescendo ending a good evening of
lighter symphonic repertoire (except for the Bach)
with gusto.

Boffos galore in desert war
By ALAN DOREE
'Spike Milligan is the funniest
person in the history of the human
race. Compared to the pace at
which he sprints along most other
humorists look like one-legged
joggers struggling uphill.
Milligan's most recent book
maintains the frenzied comedy
which    first    established    his

"Gunner Who?"
A confrontation in the desert,
by Spike Milligan.

London, 1974.
reputation — as well as Peter
Sellers' and Harry Secombe's — on
BBC radio's Good Show from the
late 40s to the early 60s. The book
is titled "Rommel?" "Gunner
Who?" A confrontation in the
desert and is volume two of
Milligan's war biography.
A confrontation in the desert
describes Milligan's experiences
as a Royal Artillery gunner fighter
against Erwin Rommel's Afrika
Korps in North' Africa — makes
sense — during 1943.
This trilogy began with volume
one — which seemed like as good a
place as any to start, I suppose —
Adolph Hitler: My part in his
downfall, published in 1971, which
detailed Milligan's wartime
training in England.
A confrontation opens — it has
to, how else could you read it? —
with Milligan's gun battery
arriving in Algeria, "We were in 'X
Camp', soldiers under 14 couldn't
get in without their parents."
Algeria was rather quiet then,
most of the noisy Germans being
next door in.Tunisia.
The war seemed unreal at that
point, as Milligan and friend Harry
Edgington discovered returning to
camp drunk one night. An animal
leapt across their path.
"Look, it's a jerboa," Milligan
said.
"Jerboa my arse, that's a
kangeroo."
"What's a kangeroo doing in
Africa?"
"There's no such animal,
Milligan, you made the word up."
"On the Bible it's true!"
You're agnostic!"
"O.K. I swear on Tiger Tims
Weekly."
"... Who goes there? came the
midnight challenge."
"Hitler," said Milligan.
"You can't be! He came in 10
minutes ago."
"We don't know who we are,
we're Military Amnesiacs
Anonymous."
"What's the pass word?"
"We give up, what is the pass
word?"
"I'm waiting ..."
"So are we . . . gi's a clue."
"Wait. . . it's here on a piece of
paper . . . Fish" said Edgington.
"That was last night."
"Chips?"
"No."
"Shirley Temple."
"I don't know why they put me
on sentry duty," said the
demoralized sentry. "There's 70
blokes come in in the last two hours
and not one bugger remembered
the word. It's a waste of bloody
time. Sod Churchill."
There were diversions, of course,
like the brothels of Algiers but
Milligan was in the company of a
good Catholic friend, "Mother
Superior Edgington, who shunned
such practices. Was he not the one
who threw his army issue contraceptive into the sea where it was
later sunk by naval gun fire?"
There was also a wartime edition
of the women's auxiliary doing
nice things for the boys at the
Front.
"The building looked like a
warehouse. We went in. It was a
warehouse. Behind tea-bearing
tables were middle-aged English
ladies who also looked like
warehouses."
Then things turned serious as
they have a habit of doing during
war. The battery went into action
and Milligan describes it all with
the blunt matter-of-factness of the
enlisted ranks. None of the our-
glorious-boys-fighting-for-King-
and-Country style so typical of the
generals' memoirs. Just a lot of
men enduring a great deal of
discomfort trying to do a job that
seemed ridiculous and important
at the same time.
There was guard duty at all
hours, while sleepless, in all
weather. "... I stood in a hole in
the ground. I undipped the
magazine of my Tommy gun. I said
Hello to it. I clipped it back on
again. I counted my nose."
"To camouflage myself I stuffed
a branch of a tree in the front of my
web belt. Lt. Goldsmith ushered
. from his hut. He saw the bush in
the hole."
"Who is that? he asked."
Revolutionary violence dull
in Spain family terror novel
By PAT ANGLY
The Bird In Last Year's Nest is in part a novel
about Spain today and about the terrorists working
to overthrow the government there. Herron also
takes a look at the nature of violence itself and what
is really gained by its use.
The Bird In Last Year's Nest,
by Shaun Herron,
M. Evans and Company, 1974.
Set in rural Spain, the story tells about a father
who learns of his son's involvement in a terrorist
group and remembers back to the time when he
himself fought in the hills alongside a bandit chief
against the fascists. What follows is a series of bank
robberies, kidnappings and jailbreaks across Spain,
culminating in the father's renunciation of the ideal
of change by revolution for the simpler 'one of
loyalty to a true friend.
The Trial
BillyJack
One has difficulty believing however, that the
lifeless characters created by Herron are capable of
such acts.
In a way the story rings of Hemingway, but falls
short in the telling. Herron writes of love, hate and
killing, but instead of arousing emotion in the
reader, he simply creates boredom.
The author asks whether revolutionaries end up
killing for "the cause" or just for the pleasure,
whether anything can be achieved by violent means
except more violence. These questions, however,
have been asked many times before and this book
brings you no closer to any answers.
Instead, you are dragged for a time into the lives
of a number of dull, incredible characters, and in
the end you don't really care what happens to the
ones who are left. As for force and violence? The
only effect this book could have would be to lull you
to a state of indifference to the whole question.
It takes up where Billy Jack left off.

book as the battle makes itself felt,
even though the battery is shelling
the enemy from a distance.
Goldsmith is struck in the chest by
a mortar bomb and Milligan and
others weep openly at the shock of
losing their "best officer."
But even the tragic moments are
unavoidably tinged with humor at
times. This is one of the book's
strengths, showing the juxtaposition of the two feelings that
seem to so typify war.
When Milligan is a radio officer
during a British attack, he is
struck by the death and
disfigurement the voices on his
radio must represent as every call
is desperately urgent, with men
surrounded by tanks, pinned down
by machine-gun fire and stunned
by continuous bombardment.
Through it all Milligan comes to
loath his position of relative safety.
Then suddenly a burst of beautiful
a shot. They rush outside. "It was
the French farmer who owned the
house, he had come back to ask us
if we'd seen his dog, which ... in
the dark had attacked him, and the
Frenchman shot him."
The book is further enlivened
with hilarious illustrations and
Hitlergrams and Mussolini-
Grams, not to mention grams from
various Allied leaders. There are
no kilograms, however.
The only complaint I have about
the book is the $8.95 price tag for
such a slim volume of 191 pages,
though it should be out in paperback before too long, like the first
volume.
The book also appears to be
poorly bound and looks glued
rather than stitched together.
The final part of the trilogy will
tell of Milligan's participation in
the invasion of Italy. "Christ
knows when I'll get round to
writing, but stay tuned," Milligan
says at the end of A Confrontation.

Janis striking on stage
By RICHARD YATES
The tragedy of Janis Joplin's life is all too
well known. She suffered excessively from
loneliness, was addicted to heroin, and died
of an overdose just as her career was
peaking. This film chooses to not exploit this
grotesque aspect and, instead, gives a visual
celebration of Janis Joplin, the performer.
The most striking thing this film presents
to a viewer who has never seen Janis in
concert is her stage presence. Her stage
chatter is a cry of honesty and, openness that
recreates all the dreams and hopes of the
60s. Her dancing is surprisingly sensual.
Janis
Directed by Howard Alk and Seaton Findlay
Produced by Crawley Films
Showing at Denman Place
This film is a front row seat at the finest
Janis Joplin concert. Song after song come
our way as we view cuts of Janis giving
some of her best performances. We see her
put all of herself into a rendition of Ball and
Chain at the Monterey Pop Festival in 1967
— the concert that shot her to the heights of
rock fame. There are filmed segments of
her performance at Woodstock, at several
Canadian points during the 1970 Festival
Express Train tour here, and some performances during a European tour during -
1969.
The pacing of the movie is broken up with
interludes filled by interviews. Typically the
questions posed were silly and the answers
given are stock answers that a pop star
provides. These interviews — with the exception of one — do not really give us any
insight into Janis. Instead they function to
let us get set for another song, to prepare us
to experience again the power and pain that
characterized Janis at her best.
It is sad that this movie could not offer us
a biography or even the sense of drama of
Janis Joplin's life. Anyone that has experienced life as deeply and as exceptionally as Janis had will always force an
insatiable curiosity on us. Unfortunately
real people's lives do not make for an effective film biography. Indeed no film on
JANIS ... stage presence of honesty, sensuality.
any rock star has given us a true perception
of that person though they all have
pretensions of this nature.
There is one interview with Janis that
gives us a really penetrating glimpse into
her. This occurs when she tries to handle a
mob of reporters during her return to Port
Arthur in 1970 for the 10th reunion of her
high school graduating class.
Her success breaks under the needling
that the gang of reporters subject her to.
Despite her control, her attempt to keep the
image of the successful superstar, she
breaks and out whelms the great sorrow of
her life: she was not loved and was not
accepted.
We are set up for this when this portion of
the film is preceeded by a televised interview with Dick Cavett where she
discussed her plans to return to her home
town. She reveals that she wanted to return
to flaunt her success at those who had "...
laughed me out of school, out of town, and
out of the state."
One of the high points of the movie is a
scene taken during the taping of Summertime with Big Brother and the Holding
Company. Janis' personality shines as she
plays the prima donna for the camera. She
plays to the camera and she entertains her
friends. Always putting herself out for
others, that was Janis.
Sex, drugs and coarse language play no
role in this movie. This is partly because
there is little or no film available of this side
of Janis' personality. Sam Andrews did have
more intimate films of her but the producer,
F. R. Crawley was unable to locate them.
Apparently no attempt was made to get
interview material that would expose this
facet of Janis' personality. The producer
was working under the conditions set by her
parents:
"If you can make a film of what Janis
meant to her fans, you can go ahead.
However, you are still doing it at your risk.
We must like the film."
With this kind of stipulation and the
limitations of material it would have been
foolhardy to try to create a revelatory film.
Instead we have a well crafted film that
entertains as only Janis could do it. It is a
good concert.
Wind machine, pelting rain most enjoyable
By NICK FAIRBANK
As most music lovers know, on
the first three days of every week
the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra gives a regular concert
series which is one of the most
popular musical activities in the
city. It usually offers music from
all bounds of the orchestral
repertoire and features top
soloists.
Conducted by the brilliant
Kazuyoshi Akiyama (who is also
the conductor of the Tokyo Symphony) the orchestra is becoming
one of the best known in North
America, due to Maestro
Akiyama's determination and
devotion.
On Sunday, Monday and
Tuesday of last week, the symphony played a concert consisting
of the overture from Mozart's Don
Giovanni, the Brahms Double
Concerto and the Alpine Symphony
of Strauss.
It is not often that one hears two
such rarely performed works in
one program — both the Brahms
and the Strauss are somewhat
impracticable for various reasons.
The former needs two soloists who
are prepared to play together and
who can match musically, while
the latter requires a huge orchestra of over 120 players, and
several  uncommon   instruments.
Akiyama succeeded in finding
the required pair of artists, but he
«*
either could not or would not find
quite enough people for the other
piece.
The overture was tossed off
crisply, like a said, with a lightness
surprising for an orchestra three
times the size of which Mozart
wrote for.
Masuko Ushioda, violin, and
Laurence Lesser, cello, were the
guest soloists in the Double Concerto in A Minor for Violin, Cello
and Orchestra, Op. 102 by Brahms.
Ushioda graduated from the Tokyo
School of Music, then she studied
further in Switzerland and
Leningrad. Lesser studied with
Piatigorsky and later became his
assistant at the University of
Southern California. Both artists
were prize winners in 1966 at the
Tchaikovsky competition in
Moscow.
At a first glance it seemed impossible that two such different
people could possible balance each
other. But although each played
with his or her own particular
style, they were always together,
and always with the orchestra, due
to Akiyama's baton. In fact, the
over-all impression of this difficult
piece was very satisfactory. The
rich tone of the violin balanced
with the virile cello playing to
produce a performance that left
one breathless.
The Alpine Symphony is actually
a series of 22 thematic sections
divided into four distinct
movements, played without pause.
The scoring calls for huge wind and
brass sections including 12 French
horns, an organ and a wind-
machine, cow bells and other
unusual  percussion   instruments.
Akiyama's interpretation had
unity. He was always in control.
The  players  were  obviously
enjoying themselves. They were
powerful and full of gusto in On the
Summit, but idyllic and refreshing
in the calmer sections. However,
the storm sounded all wind and not
much of anything else. I feel sure
that the over-eager grinder of the
wind machine could have turned
down the volume by several
decibels and let the audience hear
more of the swaying trees,
darkened skies and pelting rain,
without any loss of wind, so to
speak.
But despite such negligible
imperfections, the concert as a
whole was most enjoyable, and
demonstrative of the improvements Akiyama has made
during his tenure of conductorship.
Fellini film skilled magic
By ERIC IVAN BERG
Frederico Fellini, the Michelangelean master
painter of contemporary world cinema, has once
again dipped his brush deep into narrative, almost
autobiographical, nostalgia. Armarcofd is the only
picture I have quite catagorically been able to label a
masterpiece — a truly great work of film making
magicianship, in recent years.
Amarcord
Directed By Frederico Fellini,
Starring Bruno Zanin, Armando Brancia,
Magalli Noel et al.
At, the Varsity Theatre.
Crafted in the style and sensitivity of his two
previous films, The Clowns and Roma, Fellini has
from his own love and passion for the past tense,
strongly knit this well photographed (by Giuseppe
Rotunno) historical narrative together. He uses a
camera concious narrator, a lawyer on his bicycle, as
a sort of omnipresent master of ceremonies to outline
the story of a boy (a vague "young Fellini") growing
out of his short pants adolescence during fascist
times in a pre-war Italian seaside town.
In essence and despite FeHini's refreshing mix of
storytelling techniques he remains the master of the
studio set. He artfully renders his illusions inside the
tightly-controlled confines and special effects
wizardry of his modern studios. He does use locations
only when budgets dictate no other options. As befits
a modern Da Vinci, Fellini is a master craftsman of
artistic genius — challenging his film audience's with
his wizardry, "look at what new dreams I have
designed for you."
Amarcord is liberally sprinkled with poetic artifices that reflect perhaps the warmglow way in
which Fellini looks back upon his past. The pollen
blossom falling and floating about at film's start
recalls the soft snows of northern Italian winters, and
are symetrically repeated toward the film's end.
Amarcord ranks or will rank as one "of FeHini's
finest films, it is certainly already among the best
master paintings he has ever crafted to date.
Be forewarned, however, that if Fellini's ugly and
beautiful grotesqueries, his long narrative
digressions and overly elaborate cinematography
don't appeal to you or is a bit boring like Italian opera
then by all means don't go.

Loathing Chicano gonzo
By RALPH MAURER
Oscar Zeta Acosta is a fortyish, trendy
Chicago civil rights lawyer who briefly made
the headlines back in 1970 when, in the course of
an unsuccessful challenge of the state of
California's racist jury selection procedures,
he subpoenaed over 100 judges to atiswer his
questions.
The Revolt of the Cockroach People,
by Oscar Zeta Acosta,
Bantam paperbacks, $1.95
The Revolt of the Cockroach People tells the
story of the beginning of Acosta's involvement
with the Chicago community, his rise to
notoriety as civil rights lawyer for them, and
how he eventually became one of the more
militant (according to him) of the people. It is
the story, not of the Chicanos' (the cockroaches
in the title) uprising, but of Acosta's
metamorphosis from-an acid-chewing, overweight hippy into an acid-chewing, overweight
world-famous civil rights lawyer.
Acosta, who was Hunter Thompson's Samoan
attorney in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas,
uses the New Journalism, or Gonzo, method of
telling his story. The trouble with New Journalism is, when it's good it's great, but when
it's bad it absolutely blows. And you have to be
one hell of a fine writer to make it work. Acosta
isn't.
Acosta's trouble is that he doesn't have a
voice of his own; he is derivative as all hell.
Sometimes, such as when he refers to a
woman's breasts and ass as being "zoftig," he
uses plain bad judgment. And most of the other
stuff sounds uncomfortably like his old friend
Thompson's Writing.
Modern journalism views events from a
subjective rather than objective point of view;
Acosta's point of view merely serves to distort
the facts and make the uninformed reader
think he's either lying or exaggerating (for
some reason or other Acosta or his editors felt
it expedient to use fake names for all the major
characters in the book; thus Acosta becomes
Buffalo Zeta Brown, Los Angeles police chief
Ed Davis becomes Judd Davis, sheriff Peter
Pitchess becomes Peter Peaches, murdered
reporter Reuben Salazar becomes Roland
Zanzibar, et cetera). As a result, the book loses
its credibility as non-fiction.
Unfortunately, it doesn't make very good
fiction either. It has an interesting story line
and fascinating courtroom scenes, and would
probably make a dynamite movie, but its faults
far outweigh its strong points.
Those courtroom scenes, with their great
dialogue, are essentially copies of courtroom
transcripts, and they are easily the best written
part of the book.
Worse, liberal Acosta has no political consciousness whatsoever. Sure, he's pissed off
because his people, the Chicanos, are getting
stomped all over by racist fuckovers like Sam
Yorty and that fascist cop Ed Davis and his
militia. But then he turns around and makes
literary grabs for tits'n'bums and promises
women jurors how he can help them be women,
presumably by fucking them. He just doesn't
make any connection between the Chicano
cockroaches whitey is stepping on and female
cockroaches males are stepping on.
He even has the incredible bad taste to have a
lesbian scene in the book for no apparent
reason except self-gratification.
This book is just Acosta's expression of the
man he wants to be and a pat on the back for
what he's done or said he's done.
All in all, a total waste of time.

Of sexual athletes, myths
From pf 6. ■
Ironically (or maybe logically)
Tango of Perversion contains the
least sex and manages to be easily
the best of these movies. The acting is excellent, as the ruthless
ambition of' the tough giggolo
villain is played off against the
hopeless sexual longing of a rich
man's impotent son, a neurotic
wretch who gets his jollies by
loaning couples his luxurious
apartment, then taking amateur
movies through the two-way
mirror in the bedroom.
I saw this movie last, and it
seemed appropriate, because it
provided its own built-in commentary on the whole experience.
The first three movies catered in
their varied ways to some very
basic chauvinist/sexist
mythologies about women. For
example, that underneath every
severe-looking, icy virgin is a
nymphomaniac with a ravenous
sexual appetite.
If the voyeur is not thrilling to
the spectacle of the icy virgin being
brutally assaulted, he is treated to
a   fantasy   world   free   of   all
economic or emotional realities,
where all women are unattached
and yearning for nothing else but
an instant fuck with every
remotely good-looking male who
crosses their paths.
To be fair Young Passions had
one hilarious scene where one of
the sex-kittens was addressed by a
hopeful loner in a bar: "I guess you
find me attractive," the lady says.
"Youbet," replies the man, licking
his lips. "I guess you'd like a good
screw, eh?" leers the lady. "You
bet," gasps the man, almost falling
off his seat in anticipation. "Well, I
don't, so fuck off," shrieks the lady
as she storms out.
The reality, however, is indicated by the nature of the
audience at these places: no
women, and 95 per cent single men,
dividing into two distinct age
groups, the expected scattering of
dirty old men in seedy coats,
racked by coughs and muttering,
and a predominant ratio of
younger men in their late 20s and
early 30s, sometimes smartly
dressed executive types.
These movies project a world of
healthy guilt-free sexual
athleticism but stand on Granville
and watch how some of the
customers walk past the theatre

The real irony punched home in
Tango of Perversion is in the film-

his home-made pornographic

The comparison between the
physical impotence and his twitching voyeurism as he thrills to the
flickering images of acrobatic
bodies on the little screen, and the
audience of solitaries at the Golden

dark commentary on the part of.an

Sexual freedom hard fight
By RICHARD YATES
Alexandra Kollontai was an
important figure in .the Russian
revolution. She was within the
inner circle of the Bolsheviks
during the early years of the
revolutionary government and was
their propagandist for the new
sexual  morality.   Her  ideas  are
presented ih the essays Sexual
Relations and the Class Struggle,
Love and the New Morality, and
Communism and the Family.
Her thought is not original nor
incisive, but it does represent a
clear formulation of an ideal that
played an important role in the
thinking of communist groups as
Male love affairs
Vancouver style
By GRACE ENG
It may be safe to say that Scott Watson writes with his pen in one
hand and his penis in the other.
Watson is a young Vancouverite and this book, his first, is
published by the avant-garde Talonbooks, also of Vancouver.
Stories is a collection of about a hSlf-a-dozen pieces of journalistic writing in which he depicts his life in Vancouver and his
love affairs with other men with equal descriptive ardor.
Each phapter is identical to each other in form and style. First
describing a not too extraordinary activity, then ultimately finding

a lover to satisfy his instincts. The structure of his sentences are
unique, long and languorous, combining private thought, external
opinion, physical sensation, and visual description.
The result is an extremely, readable and image-evoking work.
Descriptions of the physical Vancouver are exquisite.
At times, he is a bit cock-teasy, delighting in titillating our moral
sensibilities with overly frank and undisguised passages of his
homosexual pleasure.
". . . we feel and pump at each other's cocks, all slippery now
from saliva . .  and after a minute I come all over his stomach . .
then he looks up and grins, rubs my front with his hand, smearing
his come all over . . "
A sheepish character, he is certainly not.
Is the book hardcore trash? Does it carry a hidden message? Is
the message in the massage?
Whatever is the explanation, it's not of dire importance.
What is notable is the supreme honesty and razor sharp perceptions that Scott Watson has a command of, and it comes very
close to being an art.
well as certain feminist groups
during the early part of this century.
We are still favorably impressed
by her fight against the inequality
under which women suffered and
her strident attacks on the
possessive marriage that was then
nearly universal. She advocated,
the "liberated woman," the new-
woman who is still struggling
today to be born:
'The entire present-day
education of a woman is directed to
confining her life to emotions of
love. And so we get th&se 'broken
hearts', these images of women
drooping from the first strong
wind. We must open up the wide
gates to a many-sided life. We
must steal a woman's heart and
armor her will. It is time to teach
woman to treat love as a step, as a
way of finding her true T, her true
self, and not as her whole
existence. Let her learn to come
through an emotional conflict as a
man does, with a stronger spirit
and not with broken wings . . .
There is already hope the new type
of woman is emerging — the
'bachelor woman' for whom love is
not the only thing in life."
This advocacy of feminine
liberation is not at the loss of an
active, healthy erotic life. Indeed
Kollontai calls for the development
of two types of love attachments:
"game-love" which is just an
erotic   relationship,   and   "great
love" which is the profound experience of love which is the
current ideal of our culture. She
argues the latter is possible only if
we admit the former and allow the
flexibility in our relationships that
this implies.
"Our time is exceptional' in that
it has no 'art of love'. People are
absolutely unable to develop -light
and carefree relationships. People
do not recognize the value of 'erotic
friendships'. Love is either a
tragedy that tears the soul apart or
it is a vulgar vaudeville. We have
to lead mankind from this blind
alley. We have to teach people to
experience bright and beautiful
emotions that burden no one. Only
by passing through the school of
erotic friendship is man's psyche
capable of feeling a 'great love'
that is completely free of any dark
aspect. Any emotional experience
[that is not just the coarse physical
act] enriches rather than impoverishes the soul."
It is disheartening to see that
these insights, which still qualify
as insightful today, have not yet
found deep roots in modern man.
The struggle for sexual freedom is
far older than most of us are
aware. This need not completely
discourage us, but it does emphasize that we must be realistic
and accept that the battle for
people's minds will be a long one.
The clear-eyed insights of
Kollontai are muddied with other
speculations that are less accurate. She draws, in Communism
and the Family, the favorite scene
of 19th century Utopians: a society
where cooking, cleaning, etc.
become communalized on a factory-like basis.
Today we realize that though
communal experiences are indeed
valuable, the individual must be
respected. Many activities which
appear to be useless idiosyncracies
are seen, on close inspection, to be
essential expressions of the individual and his attempt to integrate and handle his environment.
Kollontai fails to adequately
consider the individual in her
presentation. This is perhaps a
fault too common among communist groups. Consider the
following ideals. Both are noble but
we hunt in vain for a real
reassurance that the problems of
the individual are understood:
"Moral norms regulating sexual
life can in fact have only two aims:
• To guarantee human beings
health and the birth of healthy
offspring: to bring the selection of
sexual partners in line with the
interests of the human race.
• To develop and refine the
human psyche; to develop in the
human spirit feelings of
comradeship, solidarity and the
emotional experience of being part
of the collective."

Ref average person off ice
By STU LYSTER
Ted Mattson is by all appearances an average person. He
works downtown at Musgrove
Ford, is married and' likes to ski
with his family.
It's what Mattson likes doing in
his spare time that makes him the
subject of interest.
He spends it making split second
decisions. More often than not he
has at least a thousand people on
his back when he makes them.
Sometimes he has to get in between
two people when they are fighting.
He has to cool them off and make
day-to-day Western living.
They boo him at a moments
notice. They never praise him for
taking a stand on difficult
decisions. Rarely do they reward
him for keeping the activity and its
participants under control.
Ted Mattson is a hockey referee,
he officiates in the Canada West
League at the Thunderbird home
games.
And in his chosen hobby, he takes
a lot of shit.
Mattson doesn't appear to have
any of the qualities of a scapegoat.
Mattson is highly respected by
described as a gentleman."
"He's also an excellent official."
His manner could be described as
one of quiet assertiveness. He
seems to be aggressive only when
he has something very definite to
say, as he has about most of
hockey.
"I'm a referee because I like
hockey," said Mattson. "I played
the game as long as I could. When I
finally quit I wanted to remain in
hockey at some capacity, and I
thought refereeing was the thing."
"Besides it keeps me in shape."
Even though referees are subject

sure neither gets the best of the
other.
Whether he knows it or not he is a
scapegoat for those people. When a
few of the thousand spot him
making a mistake in his work, they
tend to be highly critical. A
psychologist would say that they
use him to vent their frustrations of
the crew that he works with in
refereeing the Thunderbirds'
games. Larry Hok and Al Paradise
rotate duties with him as referee
and linesmen.
Hok said of Mattson, "He's
highly respected by both Al and me
and everyone else that has worked
with him. I guess he would best be
Second place on line
for hockey team
Second place is .at stake as the
hockey 'Birds clash with the
University of Calgary tonight and
Saturday night at 8 p.m.
The 'Birds head into tonight's
game tied with Calgary, sharing
identical 8-9-1 records.
Even though they beat the
Dinosaurs 5-2 and 5-4 in their last
meetings three weeks ago, the
'Birds are hot off a stretch of four
losses in their last five games.
Coach Bob Hindmarch says that
doesn't present a problem to his
team.
"If anything we're going to be
red hot this weekend. The boys are
incredible, because they work like
the devil, despite the bad luck
we've run into."
The bad luck Hindmarch
refereed to is the losses the 'Birds
sustained to Saskatchewan over
the past two weeks.
In the four games played against
them, the 'Birds averaged nearly
50 shots a game, but came away
with a win and three losses.
"The spirit on this team is incredible. Win or lose, this is the
best team I've coached."
Ubyssey sports editor Tom
Barnes finds a couple of
drawbacks with the 'Birds though.
"I've noticed that the 'Birds play
better when they don't think about
what they're doing. They play good
instinctual hockey and get bunged
up when they try to organize. They
also give the other team time to
think."
Barnes also cited the 'Birds
tendency to bunch up in the attacking zone.
"It seems every time they get
the puck, or go after it, there are
three guys in there. If they spread
out more, their play would improve."
Both games start at 8 p.m. at
the Winter Sports Arena and will
be carried live by CITR Radio 650.
Games are free to UBC students.
to a lot of vocal, and sometimes
physical abuse, Mattson takes it
all in his stride.
"I really don't notice a crowd.
They pay their money to come and
enjoy the game. They also come to
bug the ref a bit," he said with a
mischievious grin.
"When a ref finds that the crowd
is getting to him, I guess that's
time for him to hang up his skates.
He can't do a good job if he's
constantly looking into the
stands."
Mattson said what he thought it
took to make a good referee. "It's
hard to judge a guy until he gets on
the ice. He may be a quiet guy, but
when he's officiating, he can't be
meek. Sometimes he has to get a
little mean.
"Above all, a good ref has to be
firm and precise. He's got to know
what to call, when and how  to
communicate it to the players.
"Also it doesn't hurt to be able to
keep up with the play."
When asked when he felt he
should finally hang up his skates,
he cited keeping up with the play as
the signal.
"I guess I'll know when to quit
when I find myself dragging
behind the youngsters."
. Even though he admitted to
being over 40, from his appearances on the ice it looks as if
he has a lot of good years left.
Without directly refering to the
Forbes-Boucha incident in the
NHL, which has seen criminal
charges brought against Bruin
Dave Forbes, Mattson has a plan to
end violence in hockey.
"It's really quite simple. Just do
what we do in university hockey.
Anyone involved in a fight gets five
minutes, plus an automatic game-
misconduct.
"The results show themselves.
They don't have it in Junior A
hockey and look what happens
there. They go out of their way to
injure sometimes, whereas in this
league they play it rough and seem
to stop at that."
"Anyone who has seen both types
of hockey knows that there are far
less fights in university leagues."
Mattson attributes experience to
the amount of control a referee
exerts on a game. He says that
after a while a person can 'feel out'
a game and knows whether or not
to call it tight.
"If it starts getting overly rough,
that's when you start to clamp
down. The thing is to establish a
pattern that the players get used to
playing under. Then they know
what to expect, so if they do get
rough, they're not surprised to
wind up in the penalty box.
"Then they respect you and you

respect them. That way, everyone
enjoys themselves."
An important aspect of
refereeing is the team work of the
three officials on the ice. Hok,
Paradise and Mattson work nearly
all of the 'Birds' home games, and
despite the occasional bitch from
the stands, work very well
together.
"We have to back each other up,
work as one. If I'm reffing a game I
can't call the decisions on my own.
I'll ask the linesmen if they saw a
certain play, goal, etc., if I missed
it. That way the game is kept fair."
The future of refereeing B.C.
seems to be dim according to
Mattson. He attributes it to the
.rapid growth of hockey, particularly in the Vancouver area,
over the last 10 years.
"Young people's interest in
refereeing hasn't kept up with the
growth of hockey. It's hard for a
kid, especially when he hasn't had
the experience of handling games.
If a game gets out of control, he'll
probably get discouraged because
he won't know how to handle it.
"Nick Andruich runs a school for
refs in the summer, with guys like
Ron Ashford from the NHL, Bob
Kolarifrom the WHA, Al Paradise
and Larry Hok assisting.
"They go over the rule book,
teach ice position and other things
like how to call a penalty.
"They go for one week solid
living, eating and sleeping together
and Nick turns out some fine officials."
More than anything else, quality
of referees is the key to cleaning up
organized sport.
No longer would sports like
hockey profit from the animal
shows it thrives on today.
And it will be men like Ted
Mattson that provide the key.

Five Lomas to join football 'Birds
By TOM BARNES
Amid the swirling snows of
winter the football program at
UBC continues to be active as
Frank Smith works on next year's
edition of the Thunderbirds,
While trying to put together a
strong nucleus for the commencement of Canada West
league action next September,
Smith is no doubt trying to forget
much of what happened to his
charges during the past season.
The gruesome details of which will
not be recounted here.
The first step in a contending
direction was made last week when
36 survivors of this season's
campaign attended a team
meeting. Their main function was
to elect two team captains for next
season. But by their attendance
they showed Smith that he will
have a much needed experienced
nucleus.
Much of Smith's recruiting to
date, and he has been a rather busy
fellow in that regard, has centered
on the ranks of junior football and
transfers from colleges. This route
has yielded at least 12 certain
prospects and a number of
possibilities. At least five players
are to be expected from the
Vancouver Meralomas, who
finished second in Canada last
year.
One of the biggest drawbacks for
the 'Birds this year was the young

MIKE MCKAY, left, of the UBC Thunderbirds, finally hauled in this much bobbled rebound in lastvffeek's
action against the University of Lethbridge Pronghorns.  'Birds won that one 114-58, but face rougher
competition tonight and Saturday against the University of Alberta Golden Bears.
Long arm McKay nabs thief
You might think that sport is a
bore on the floor, but UBC's teams
often save their interesting
episodes until after regulation time
expires.
While the basketball 'Birds were
stealing the last shreds of
respectability from the Lethbridge
Pronghorns on last Friday and
Saturday, a lightfooted fellow was
fingering the scratch from the
'Birds' pockets in the locker room
as the game was drawing to a
close. But he was just a little slow.
The team returned before he was
finished.
A 'Bird player saw him, and
raised the alarm. Realizing the
game was up, the thief bolted for
the door, but was collared by coach
Peter Mullins.
"Not me!" he screamed at
Mullins. "Him!" He pointed in
another direction. Confused,
Mullins released the man and
looked in the indicated direction,
where, of course, no thief was to be
seen. The newly-liberated robber
started for freedom again, only to
be swallowed up in the gentle grasp
of 6'11" Mike McKay.
The campus RCMP turned the
man over to the Vancouver city
police, who discovered that he was
an Oakalla escapee. He was
promptly returned.
This meant, however, that the
preliminary court hearing was
delayed. As a result, the 'Birds'
stolen money, totalling $153, which
was impounded as evidence, has
still not been returned to the
players. It was, dare we say it? a
costly victory.
UBC's basketball teams are in
Edmonton this weekend. The
series is a crucial one for the men's
team, which is tied for second with
Alberta. The women are looking
for two easy wins to extend their
first-place lead. The next home
series is Feb. 7 and 8 against UVic.
The'Birds volleyball team is in
Victoria on the weekend for the
first stage of the Canada West
tournament. UBC was first in the
Canada West league last year, and
finished third in both the CIAU
championship and the National
Open championship. They have a
good team again this year.
age and diminutive size of the
players. This was so pronounced
that an official from the University
of Alberta termed them "one hell
of a high school team." The new
players due to arrive on campus at
the end of this summer will help
remedy that situation.
Up to now Smith has not been
able to spend much time looking at
another valuable source of talent,
the high school teams throughout
the province. He is just beginning
the push in that direction this week
when over a dozen high school
prospects will tour the campus.
With any luck the snow will stick
around so they can't see that much
of it, and they will decide to stay.
All told Smith has over 50
prospects lined up already.
Gordon Penn, who played with
the 'Birds two seasons ago, is due
to complete his program at
Capilano college this spring. Penn
may be the answer to one of the
most crucial problems the 'Birds
faced last year, the lack of a big
hard hitting fullback to get those
tough yards on the inside.
Dan Smith the promising
quarterback of the 'Birds will be
back again, this time Frank Smith
hopes to have at least four
receivers on the team who can
catch the ball. If that is the case it
will be another much needed
change.
Smith also hopes to counter the
problem of having linemen who are
too small to do an effective job. He
has ten players on tap who top 210
pounds and has several others on
weightlifting programs.
Smith said, "This year we're not
aiming to win a game. We feel we
are going to win several. I think we
have got the makings of a real
contender."
He went on to say that he feels
student support will come with a
winning team, but that such things
as lights at Thunderbird Stadium
could be of great assistance too.
It has been so long since UBC has
had a winning team that it is hard
to say how the students will react.
All we can say is "Good luck
Frank," because it is going to be a
big job. But with Smith having an
entire year to recruit instead of the
60 days he had last summer,
maybe something will be done
about one of the greatest losing
traditions in Canadian in-
tercolligiate sport.
Soccer 'Birds work
on fundamentals
With the tons of white stuff the Guy Upstairs had heaped upon us, it
looks as if the UBC Thunderbirds soccer team will go on their sixth week
of inactivity.
With all the time in the world, the 'Birds were last seen working on the
basics of the game.
UBC coach Joe Johnson said the team is "is very weak in very basic
things such as crossing the ball from the wing and first timing the ball."
He also said his wingers are putting too much emphasis on then-
defensive roles and are "forgetting their offensive roles."
With one of the fittest and the youngest teams in the league one
wonders why the team has not put more emphasis on their wingers till
now.
Wing-plays are not only exciting to watch, but also the most effective
offensive weapon the soccer world has ever known.
Generations have marvelled at the skill of the likes of Sir Stanley
Matthews, Jimmy Johnston, Jair and the incomparable George Best.
No one is asking UBC to produce another Georgie Best, but if a kid
from Ireland with toothpicks for legs can get $250,000 for doing
something that should come naturally for any soccer player, why can't
UBC players do the same.
Three UBC players, Brian Budd, Daryl Samson and Greg Weber, will
have their chance to make the big time this summer when they will be
on loan to the Vancouver Whitecaps.
Though there have been rumours that the three have signed
professional contracts with the Whitecaps, UBC coach Joe Johnson in
an interview with the Ubyssey emphatically denied this and said that
the three are strictly on loan to the Whitecaps.
The UBC coach also said he would like to take the team on a road trip
this fall.
He said since UBC does not have any athletic scholarships, these trips
are the only attractions he can offer new recruits.
In past years the team has gone on trips to Colorado. Next year, the
UBC coach hopes to visit China and Japan.
Two years ago the 'Birds had tried to organize a trip to China, but
never materialized. This time Johnson hopes the National Collegiate
title would make the 'Birds a better attraction.
Obviously the main problem the 'Birds face is financing the trip.
Jude crew seeks crown
The Thunderbirds are in search of yet another
Canada West championship this Saturday as the judo
'Birds play host to other conference schools.
The University of Alberta, the University of Lethbridge, and the University of Victoria, will all be
making the journey to War Memorial gym to take on
the 'Birds.
Competition is scheduled to get underway at 1:00
p.m.
The tourney will commence with individual
competition in five weight classes. The team competition will follow. The winning team will be
awarded the Kabuto Trophy.
The U of Alberta Golden Bears are not only the
defending champions but have never been beaten in
the 10-year history of the event. The Thunderbirds
have only competed in the Canada West tourney for
the past two years. They are counting on upsetting
the Golden Bears in their third-time round. Overall it
is expected to be a tight tournament.
The 'Birds have a strong side featuring many
seasoned members. Gary Hirose is a former
Canadian middleweight champion and Rick
Uyeyama is the defending Canada West middleweight champion. George Richey, the Canadian 190-
pound wrestling champion, will also compete for the
Birds.
Alan Sukai was second in the featherweight class in
the Canadian championships and Grey Lyon has
spent several years training in Japan.
If the 'Birds win they will follow in the footsteps of
the soccer, rugby, cross country and women's field
hockey teams who have already won Canada West
championships this season. Page 16
