 OTEU already agrees
U / ■<
BoG to ratify
The administration and the board of
governors' staff committee is recommending
the board accept a proposed contract with 45
physical plant clerical workers.
Members of the Office and Technical
Employees Union, local 15, voted Monday to
ratify the 22-month contract, retroactive to
June l.
The 11-member board is expected to vote on
the contract next week, university information officer Arnie Myers said Thursday.
He said he expects the board will follow
tradition and accept the administration's
Physical plant workers served 72-hour
strike notice on the administration Oct. 10.
Irene Mclntyre, an OTEU shop steward,
said the 29 workers who voted for the strike
notice could have shut down the university if
they had gone on strike.
She said the strike vote was taken after the
union had rejected personnel director John
McClean's contract terms.
McClean was unavailable Thursday and
Local 15 president Bill Swanson, interviewed
at the B.C. Federation of Labor conference in
Vancouver, did not have wage and benefit
increases available.
However, Myers told The Ubyssey the
contract is similar to the one the university
and the Canadian Union of Public Employees
signed Sept. 10.
The CUPE contract covered 1,000 maintenance, service and technical workers.
The agreement provided for a wage increase of nine per cent in each of the two
years of the contract.
Swanson said Wednesday the OTEU
negotiating committee bargained for a big
increase for junior clerical workers.
"There's no question about it that clerical
workers desired some really healthy increases," he said.
He confirmed that some senior members of
the local were displeased with the contract.
"But I can't help it if the higher-paid people
are unhappy," he said. "The negotiating
committee wanted to get the increases for
junior workers."
He said he believes workers making $1,100
under the old contract now will make about
$1,250 and that clerical workers who made
much less than the old top salary will receive
about a 38 per cent pay increase.
Contract negotiations did go to mediation,
even before the strike vote was taken in early
When The Ubyssey asked Swanson in October if he had received the strike notice to
pass it on to the university, he denied
receiving it.
However, he later admitted he had received
the notice, but had not sent it to the university.

'Aren't we great?-Lalonde
By JAKE van der KAMP
The recent victory of the Liberal
party in the Quebec general
election is proof of the success of
federalism in that province, Marc
Lalonde, federal health and
welfare minister, said Thursday
"The population of Quebec
overwhelmingly showed its support of federalism," Lalonde told
more than 300 party faithful in the
faculty club.
Robert Bourassa's Liberals took
103 seats in the 110-seat National
Assembly Monday. The Parti
Quebecois however, which favors
separatism, increased its share of
the popular vote to 30 per cent from
23 per cent in the 1970 election.
Lalonde claimed the party's
success in Quebec will help to
answer the question of B.C.
He said that as a minister who
comes from Quebec he can understand the feelings of people in
the West who consider themselves
"Westerners feel neglected and
frustrated," he said. "I can understand this."
He said Quebecois have a hard
time defining this sense of
frustration and the same is true for
British Columbia.
"Government is seen as a
sneaking, sinister agent from some
.Ontario power."
Lalonde told the audience
Western alienation would not be
conquered from the East, but by
the persistent involvement of
Westerners in politics.
He said he had sensed the intense
feelings of the West for a united
Canada when Prime Minister
Pierre Trudeau brought down the
War Measures Act after the Front
d'Liberation de Quebec kidnapped
and killed Quebec labor minister
Pierre LaPorte and kidnapped
British trade commissioner James
Cross in October, 1970.
The federal government is also
doing a great deal for B.C. and the
federal-provincial conference in
Calgary last summer shows this,
he said.
He cited several results of the
conference as proof of the federal
government's concern.
"The railway development
agreement with B.C. which was
agreed on in Calgary is one of the
greatest of its kind since the
building of the Trans-Canada
He said, the agreement a northern railway system would be
developed and links would be made
between the Canadian Pacific and
Canadian National railways at
Ashcroft, B.C., and the British
Columbia Railway at Clinton, B.C.
He also said the federal government would fund a program for rail
relocation in urban areas and that
legislation for this would be introduced in parliament within the
next two weeks.
As further agreement for
development, he cited the
enlargement of port facilities at
Prince Rupert, the setting up of a
committee on Western Transportation and the funding of ocean
engineering under the control of
the B.C. Research Council.
He said the West is gaining in
fluence in the field of economics on
its own initiative and mentioned
the Bank of B.C. as an example.

Budget found lew
The Alma Mater Society council learned Wednesday that society,
treasurer John Wilson's budget, as first presented to council Oct. 10
underestimated expenditures by $1,400.
The revelation threw into jeopardy the already strapped $151,000
discretionary allotments which include the undergraduate society,
Ubyssey, speakers, intramurals and committee budgets.
Wilson admitted during the debate on final two-thirds approval of
the budget that he had made a mistake in calculating the covered pool
trust fund.
Wilson said he had made his calculations on the basis of 18,000
students paying the full $5 pool fees — enrolment is higher but not all
pay full fees — which meant he had alloted $90,000 to the pool trust.
But he said he forgot to add $1,400 for the 400 part-time students
who pay a $1 pool fee under a constitutional amendment passed at last
spring's general meeting.
This money will have to be added to the $608,305 constitutional
expenditures action of the budget which would then decrease the
$151,525 discretionary section by $1,400.
Wilson later announced the budget committee will meet noon
Tuesday in the AMS executive conference room to discuss the $1,400 cut. Page 2

'You betcha' — Lalonde
From page 1
Lalonde also said the federal
government will be formulating an
oil policy.
"There was a recent crisis in the
oil situation and we have acted to
protect the Canadian consumer,"
he said.
He denied reports published by
downtown newspapers that
gasoline prices would rise six cents
a gallon.
"Energy minister Donald
Macdonald has said there will be
no price increase in Canadian
gasoline before Feb. 1 next year,"
he said.
He also assured his audience the
government is making moves to
"untie" the price of gas in Canada
from the prices set in the United
"We are going to tie our prices to
international ones."
Lalonde lamented so much
money from oil produced in
Canada is going to the U.S. and
said an export tax will be set.
Money received from this will go to
the areas most concerned with oil
development, he said.
Referring to the certain cutback
of oil from Arab countries, he said
the problem will not be solved by
threats and ultimatums.
McGill daily
paper gets
budget cut
University student council
Thursday cut the council subsidy to
the McGill Daily, one of the oldest
student newspapers in Canada, by
Council chopped its subsidy to
$20,000 from the requested $43,900,
forcing the Daily staff to cut out its
weekly cultural and political
supplement, its telex link with
Canadian University Press,
mailing allowance, travel expense,
subscriptions and CUP conference
Daily editor Joan Mandell said
the budget cut means advertising
revenue from the newspaper would
also drop.
She said the cut was "politically
The original budget proposal
sent to finance committee was for
$104,000 — the majority to come
from ads.
A student councillor backing the
cut said the paper should be cut
because not every student is interested in reading it.
"The Friday edition should be
cut down and we will still have a
publication for those interested in
reading it. If it's a question that it's
going to be harder to run the Daily,
then tough luck,"- said the councillor.
The Daily, the only daily student
newspaper in Canada, has suffered
replacement of its editors and staff
before, but never a suggestion that
it stop publishing daily.
At least one student executive
agreed with Mandell that the
budget was a political question.
Another rep suggested the problem
isn't whether there should be a
daily newspaper, but whether the
Daily is doing its job with the
money council grants it.
Ten council members approved
the cut, six opposed it and one
member abstained.

Students threaten
to halt construction
GUELPH (CUP) — The University of Guelph's university centre,
now under construction, may be halted if the administration does not
allow students a substantial control over the building.
The student council executive said last Friday if students are not
allowed to have more control over the building than they now have their
funds will be withdrawn and a referendum held on whether the centre
should be completed.
Students have contributed over $2.5 million towards the costs of the
$6.7 million building. The funds were approved for the construction of a
student union building by referendum in 1966. But the building plans
have changed since then and a further referendum approved changes
after provincial grant structures changed.
But the university later decided to combine the university centre
with their own planned administration building, without student approval.
Students having paid for over one third of the buildings have seen
almost three floors of the five floor building taken over by the administration, including space for what is described as "group therapy".

LAST SEMI-WARM DAYS of fall mean a look in the library pond for Terrance, who said he was fishing for

Day care open despite money cuts
Last year's financial difficulties
have not stopped the recent
opening of a new day care centre at
UBC says Marvin Lazerson, co-
chairman of the university day
care council.
Last summer there was a
p waiting list of approximately 80
people for campus day care services. This is not an accurate
reflection of the number wanting
child care because many were too
discouraged to register on hearing
there was a 1-1/2 year wait,
Lazerson said in a recent interview
with The Ubyssey.
He said the need for day care on
campus is increasing due to the
changing due to the changing role
of the family — women are pur-
* suing careers and the notions of
child rearing are changing.
"The policy of the day care
council is to start day care centres
whenever possible even if we have
to scotch tape them together," he
There were two areas of initial
funding for the new centre, called
Summer of '73, said Lazerson. The
first was from the graduating class
*"■ of 1973 which donated $3,500 to the
day care council. The second was
from the provincial 'matching
fund' policy which gave $2,000. The
NDP fund policy matches other
revenues put up for day care
facilities by other interested
For the children's toys and
equipment, which are very expensive, they received a day care
equipment grant of $5,000 from the
^ provincial government. The money
is split between two sections of the
centre — one catering to children
under three the other to those over
Non-profit organizations, such as
the Children's Workshop, built
equipment at very low cost,
Lazerson said.
Discounts   for   materials   were
"* obtained from various businesses.
Items like paint and rugs that were
off   color   or   non-saleable  were
obtained in this way.
Once the centres are started they
are self-sustaining, he said. This is
possible by fees ranging from $100
to $120 per month, parental involvement and government
welfare subsidies.
* Fees vary according to which
age group the child falls into, under
three or over three years old. Full
time day care for the under three is
more expensive due to the need for
a higher staff to child ration
Lazerson said.
"Good child care is expensive,"
he said. "People do not appreciate
how much it cost to create a good,
safe environment."
The initial idea for the Summer
of '73 came in June. Applicants
were sent letters from the day care
council requesting them to attend a
meeting if they wish to start a new
The group then sub-divided into
committee for the playground,
hiring staff, scrounging and doing
the legal work.
"I can not say enough good
things about deputy president Bill
Armstrong and I usually cannot
say anything good about administrators," said Lazerson.
"Armstrong presented our case to
the board of governors, aided in
transfering the buildings and
clarified confusing problems."
Lazerson said it was the policy of
the board to give any available
study huts on Acadia road that had,
no prior need to the day car
The transformation of the old
unused study huts took about one
month said Alan Louie, one of the
parents who helped in Summer
'73's development.
Approximately 40 parents helped
convert the huts in August and
September. Some took 2 weeks or a
month off work or helped, in their
spare time Louie said.
Parents skilled in law, architecture, engineering, and
carpentry were used in the
drawing up of the society charter,
drawing the plans, tearing down
walls, laying carpets and building
fences, Louie said.
"The centre is fantastic now,"
said Louie.
The under three centre has a
quiet room, a large bathroom, a
kitchen, staff office, and play room
complete with water table.
The over three centre has a
storage room, a utility room with
washer and dryer for wet and dirty
towels, sheets, clothes, staff office,
cloak room, bathroom, quiet room,
a full kitchen, a 'doll house room',
a pit-library and a science corner
complete with hamsters and
It is vital that the centre runs as
a co-op sharing in expenses and
duties. Co-operation amongst the
parents with the staff and children
is important.
"If the children do not like the
centre it is because the parents
refuse to co-operate, said Louie.
Lazerson said parental involvement was for financial and
philosophical reasons. Financially
they are necessary because they
provide   voluntary   services   that
Alumni submit brief
A committee formed by the UBC Alumni
Association will submit a brief on changes in the
Universities Act to education commissioner John
Bremer's education reform task force in January.
"The association will submit the brief during the
two days in January reserved by Bremer for all interested parties to submit ideas and recommendations to the task force," Harry Franklin,
committee member and association executive
director, said Thursday.
"The committee will examine the principles set
down by the association in 1967," Franklin said. "It
will basically try to determine which of these principles should be changed or retained."
Franklin referred to a brief the association submitted to the UBC administration which included
recommendations for increase in size of board of
governors, reduction of senate size, retention of the
office of Chancellor, retention of the president's
central power and the setting up of a single advisory
board of higher education.
"We are also examining the recent trend toward
democratization and a broadening of representation
on campus," Franklin said.
"The question is what benefits and what expense
this, will have for UBC."
"We are interested in ways of unifying committee
structures,   lightening   the   president's   workload,
becoming more attuned to continuing education, and
attracting the student population," he said.
Franklin said the association would be effective as
a  liaison  service between  UBC  and the outside
community in this respect.
"All along we've been very modest in claiming our
role as a constant liaison group in the university,"
Franklin said. "Very little attention has been given to
the association."
"We have our feet in both communities," he said.
"'And we are a constant factor in the university."
Franklin told The Ubyssey the association
consisted of UBC graduates who still wished to
participate in the running of the university.
"There are 65,000 members of the association, and
considering the 3,000 people graduating each year,
membership should double by 1995," he said. "We
feel the association deserves a cloak of permanence."
Franklin said the committee would have to wait
until Bremer's first draft of the Universities Act
report was issued before compiling the brief.
"We don't have any preconceived policies," he
said. "But if the report were to unfavorably affect the
role of the association, we might argue against it."
Franklin said the report would be presented orally
and submitted in written form after approval by the
association's managing board.
The Bremer task force completed the report and
submitted it to education minister Eileen Dailly
several weeks ago. At a Wednesday Alma Mater
Society council meeting, president Brian Loomes
announced 1,000 copies of the report would arrive
"This is basically a feedback draft," Franklin
said. "Its purpose is to welcome criticism and
suggestions before the final draft is written."
would be extremely difficult to pay
for and their compulsory duty
time during the day saves the
added expense of another supervisor. Philosophically it allows
more male participation and one
can learn a lot from children, he
"I have two equal reasons for
being at the centre," said Louie.
"First because I have an obligation
to be here and secondly because I
want to be here. It's enjoyable —
like a second childhood. It also
provides the second home for both
parents and children and we use it
as such."
The Summer of '73 is great said
Janet Pacey, one of the supervisors in the under three centre.
"The parents have been more
than helpful. They are organized,
enthusiastic, friendly and enjoyable," she said. Their
assistance is preferred to hiring a
third supervisor.
The 12 full-time and the three
part-time under three children
have settled in and are generally
well behaved, she said.
The program for the under three
children is flexible said Pacey. The
younger group from 18 months to
two years old walk, socialize with
peers and adults, play and listen to
music. The older children from two
years to three years are engaged in
more creative work such as
drawing and painting.
Terry Fortt, an over three
supervisor, said parents were not
only involved in the children but in
the centre as well.
The parents took great care in
hiring staff, Fortt said.
"The hiring committee observed
me working in the previous day
care centre before they decided to
employ me."
Fortt said the over three group
has 17 children now and expects
the number to rise to 24 as children
in the under three centre grow
There is a waiting list of approximately 20 children currently
trying to get in Fortt said.
Parent involvement depends on
the number of children they have
attending the centre, Fortt said.
For two full-time children five
hours are required, for one full-
time child, three hours, and for one
part-time child, two hours — plus
rotating clean-up duty every night. Page 4
Friday, November 2, 1973
Undergraduate societies' frustration with the Alma
Mater Society exploded again Wednesday during the council
debate over allotments to undergraduates in the 1973-74
society budget.
Currently, the confrontation is between the financing
formula proposed by AMS treasurer John Wilson ($250 flat
grant, plus 35 cents per head for the first 1,000
undergraduate society members and 15 cents for every
student after that) and that developed several years ago by
then arts undergraduate president Don Palmer ($200 flat,
grant and either 30 cents or 40 cents a head for every
student regardless of total enrolment).
Wilson's formula, as approved by the AMS budget
committee, favors the smaller faculties but grants less to the
larger faculties.
Thus the battle lines are drawn.
Since the total grant in the case of either formula is
about $10,000, smaller faculties like architecture and larger
ones like science get into endless debate about how much
money they each need.
Wilson replies to objections to the formula by saying
that any system of granting money is bound to favor one
group over another and smaller,faculties are being given
larger proportional grants because fixed costs are roughly
the same for fall undergraduate societies.
Frustration is compounded by the fact that the
obvious solution — giving all them the money they want —
is well nigh impossible under the current operation of the
As law representative Gordon Turriff points out the
debate is concerned with chicken feed since the total
undergraduate grant — $10,000 — is such a tiny part of the
total $759,830 AMS revenue.
When the $10,000 is divided up between 21
undergraduate groups the shares would hardly supply a
week's beer for most active societies says Turriff.
Frustration gains yet another level when those asking
for money, are told they should levy additional
undergraduate fees such as those of other societies.
"But since we already pay $34 in AMS fees, why
should we only get 50 cents per student returned?"
To begin with, the way things operate, most of the
money collected disappears before it even gets to council
because of various constitutional provisions.
Eliminating them, only about $150,000 is left in the
so-called discretionary category.
Under the current system where the society
administers and handles the bookkeeping and business for
publications, undergraduate societies, clubs, SUB and the
students council, the business office gobbles up $77,000 of
this fund.
And when the remaining priorities like intramurals,
speakers and educations committees, various special project
and assistance funds, The Ubyssey, radio CYVR, Mamooks
and other services take their allotted cut there is only about
$10,000 for undergraduate society kick-backs.
With a little shaving and a sympathetic council this
grant could be increased a few thousand dollars but it would
still be in the chicken feed range when divided up.
More drastic action like the society casting all the
undergraduate societies adrift would eliminate, at least
partially, the approximately $12,000 spent on administering
their business.
If this could be done the undergraduates would then
have to pay their own administration and audits costs but
with volunteer work there would be some saving so the
effect could be to almost double current grants.
This would mean undergraduate societies would get
about $1 per student instead of 50 cents, which hardly gets
at the crux of their complaint: namely that the society
doesn't serve them.
As we said it is frustrating, and if this analysis is
depressing, it only suggests that there are no easy solutions
to what is becoming an increasing source of campus
discontent and/or apathy.
The two solutions to the problem now developing
among AMS types diverge radically though both are still in
the formulative stage.
One group suggests the society should hunt out
alternate sources of revenue and then use the profits to
subsidize student services.
The other line of thinking says the society should
divest itself of all holdings (the building, the reserve, the art
collection etc.) and go back to being a simple co-ordinator'
of activities.
Both plans will be examined in upcoming editorials.

new black-and-white drawings, Shadbolt attempts
to articulate a fluid dialogue between poet and
but as my poet I
there I live dangerously
love gloriously
laugh knowingly
speak wittily
or through my artist I
the world transforms
in splendid imagery
In his introduction Shadbolt describes the poetic
image as being identical to the abstract visual
image in possessing simultaneously "simplicity"
and "depth-charge expansiveness". In seeking to
achieve this last quality Shadbolt too often
sacrifices simplicity of rhythm. His lyrics are selfconsciously overwritten; one senses a Hopkins unsprung.
Despite his lack of compression Shadbolt does
manage now and then, a line of surprising power,
grace, or humor. His lyrics to his wife are par
ticularly effective,  radiating  the  clear,  bright
strength of his sincerity:
Lust moves its mountainous wedge
and that between us
for so long denied
now floods the room with simple tears
that are both pain and hope
Shadbolt's drawings are not intended to
illustrate individual poems, but rather spring
spontaneously from "parallel moods". The
arrangement of poems alternating with drawings
prods the reader's perceptual antennae, creating
a challenging texture of communication.
The lyrical exuberance of Shadbolt's drawings
makes one feel that he must be secretly glad to
abandon the exacting task of bullying words into
tight lines of poetry. In contrast to his poems'
forced march of images and ideas, Shadbolt's
drawings partake of a wonderfully untrammelled
vitality. Indian totems, flowers, and owls are
recurring images in his expressive abstract
What art is all about, Shadbolt has stated in his
book In Search of Form (McClelland & Stewart,
1968), is that "the whole is greater than the sum of
the parts". Mind's I attests to the truth of this
familiar dictum; Shadbolt's drawings suggest far
more than they reveal. It is exactly this quality
that is so conspicuously absent from his poetry.
Therefore no more words
let the mood be gay
let the deeper levels
play as they will play
Words can be conundrums.

Friday, November 2, 1973 All good Roman Catholics
Several films over the past few years
have taken material that was the stuff of
which inferior pot-boilers are made, and
turned it into superlative entertainment:
Rosemary's Baby and Wait Until Dark
both come to mind. Unfortunately, that
happy state of affairs has to a certain
extent broken down our defences, and we
tend to expect a similar quality in new
releases which purport to be slickly
"terrifying" in a similar vein, especially
when stars the like of Christopher
Plummer and Karen Black are involved. If
you want to build your defences up once
again, go and see "The Pyx". It's terrible.
WHAT IT IS! (Marquee message outside
the Vogue Theatre). "Pyx; 2. the vessel in
which the host or consecrated bread of the
sacrament is reserved." (Oxford English
Not knowing the above definition is no
reason to see this film.
There is nothing necessarily wrong
with Grade — B movies; when they are
well done they can be much more entertaining than many "literary" motion
picture epics. But it seems important that
they should be made without arty
pretensions to greater things. Above all
they   shouldn't   take   themselves   too
Private made public
A small, renovated, theatre at S.W.
Marine near Granville housed an impressive production of early twentieth
century situation comedy: Noel
Coward's Private Lives.
It is a difficult type of play to produce.
The characters are one-dimensional and
the situations highly contrived.
Elyot and Amanda, - divorced from
each other for five years, have remarried
and discover the amazing coincidence
that they are honeymooning in adjacent
"This is," Elyot says, with controlled
understatement, "a little unfortunate."
The two decide in a matter of minutes
that they are once again madly in love,
and they depart immediately, to
Amanda's posh apartment in Paris.
Their impetuous and passionate natures
not only attract them to each other but
also tear them apart, for they have
frequent violent arguments. There is a
splendid fight at the end of the second
act, a very physical, vicious encounter
between the two ardent lovers who slap
batter, and fling each other about the
stage.   Of  course,   their   respective
Rip van Winkle
One   Hundred   Years   of
Gabriel Garcia Marquez,
New York, paper $1.50.
Solitude,   by
Avon B(foks,
This monumental novel has been called
a Latin American Don Quixote. Situated
in the fictional town of Macondo,
somewhere in Colombia, South America,
all the frustrations, fantasies, guilts and
hopes for identity of the Third World are
woven together by the author's genius for
exact observation and psychological
One Hundred Years of Solitude tells the
rich and lusty story of the rise and fall of
the Buendia family. They live in
Macondo, a wholly isolated village
surrounded by swamp. Because of this
isolation there is no agreement on what is
real and what is fantastic. A rain of tiny
yellow flowers and a levitating priest are
less astonishing to the people of Macondo
than 'modern inventions' such as ice,
magnets, false teeth and the railway.
Modern civilization is represented by an
American banana plantation. But the
plantation is not a reliable guide as to
what is real and what is not. During a
strike three thousand workers are
massacred and whisked away on a train.
The authorities deny the massacre and
years later in school texts the official
version states there was no plantation at
There is an extremely thin dividing line
between fantasy and reality in Macondo.
Marquez' fantastic function as a parody
of Colombian history because Colombian
history is nearly as fantastic as anything
that occurs in Macondo.
Though Marquez draws upon the
folklore of Colombia this masterpiece is
important to us because he describes the
collective experiences of mankind. There
could have been no Macondo without
Spain in the form of Sir Francis Drake
whose assault on a coastal town sets in
motion the history of Macondo. No Spain
without Rome, no Rome without Greece
and so on back through time. Hence the
gypsy, Melquiades, who comes back to
life because he found death lonely is the
immemorial muse of the imagination
who inspires the writing of books.
But since the past is fiction in the sense
that it can never tell the whole truth,
Macondo can only exist within the pages
of the book that depict it; history
becomes an illusion, a mirror-like dream
of Utopian greatness that accompanies
the foundation of Colombia and Latin
America. The dream of history, however,
becomes exploited and degraded.
Since history is cyclical, there is never
really any development in Macondo. All
the Buendias (seventeen of them) call
themselves Aureliano. Time turns in a
circle. Macondo, like Colombia, is involved in political activity that leads
nowhere. Revolutions, disasters, such as
the rain that lasts four years, eleven
months and two days, impose perpetual
cycles of destruction and reconstruction.
Man's presence in Macondo, like his role
in history, is fleeting. Only Nature
Yet the novel can be read on many
levels. Its obvious appeal is because it is
funny. Marquez' exaggerated, yet deadpan depiction of events takes hyperbole
for fact. The novel is funny, magical,
compelling, complex and exotic.

marriage partners arrive in time to
witness the nature and effects of their
love affair.
Working with such an artificial and
simplistic plot, and with a continuous
barrage of one-line jokes, the capabilities
of the actors are revealed. Their task is
not to achieve a sensitive or convincing
character portrayal, but to create a
highly dramatic, kinetic rapport between
the shallow but intense characters. The
two leading performers, Irene Harris, as
Amanda, and Drew Borland, as Elyot
Chase, played up selected aspects of
their roles with special confidence,
energy and skill.
Rich, colourful costumes; elaborate,
lavish sets; sentimental organ music;
spare lighting effects; each aspect of the
production was  particularly   effective.
The play itself teaches us little. It is
about love: the smooth, cozy, wise, kind,
lasting love they all anticipate on the
marriage day is short-lived. It is about
"man" and "woman", presenting and
destroying various aspects of stereotypic
male and female roles. None of the ideas
in the play are original or valuable:
"Certain women should be struck
regularly, like gongs," says Elyot to
defend himself when he is being
criticized for hitting Amanda. None of
the jokes could stand on their own. Within
the context of the play, however, in the
hands, or mouths, of capable performers,
the wit is shaped. Linda Reed
Party time
It was a hilarious and exhilarating
evening at the Vancouver City College
experimental stage last Tuesday, as
young director Stephen Katz presented
two one-acts by Slawomir Mrozek
(b.1930, Poland). But it was not quite
•simple entertainment. They were rather
savage and devastating in their effect —
perhaps as devastating as Dean Swift's
political satires. True, Mrozek, one of the
most talented young Polish playwrights,
was a caricaturist and cartoonist, and
these two one-acts, Out at Sea and The
Party, rigorously and relentlessly applied perfect logic to illogical ends, but
they were not merely studies in
grotesque, or parodies of politics. Not
that they were not political: the implications were obvious, and sharp,
pointed, and bloody.
The unnamed characters of these two
one-acts (presented by Katz with chalk-
white faces, some of the roles played by
women) had something extra to offer
apart from socio-political commentary.
They were quite universal in their
appeal — countries run by cant, and
slogan-spouting little men — be it
Poland, Canada, or the United States.
The structures of these plays are
simple enough. Tn Out at Sea, three shipwrecked survivors (fat, medium and
thin) must decide which one of them
will be eaten by the other two.' Iu The
Party, three bored farmers desperately
tried to have a jolly good party which
threatened to end in murder.
But it is not the plot or 'linear progression' of the storyline which mattered
in these plays. Both these plays were
perfect examples of the theatre of ideas
— theatre of the absurd a la Eastern
"If it's an idea, it must mean
something", said one of the unnamed
characters in The Party. That is why
Stephen Katz could introduce, without
marring the appeal or the. message of
The Party, an extra character, a silent
farmer, or dare to present Out at Sea
with two women playing male roles.
It is not the clown who finally emerges
before us, but a priest, as Leszek
Kolakowsky would have put it. Katz, with
his group of actors (Dorothy-Ann Haug,
Gregory Reid, Mary Swinton, Terry
Waterhouse), simply tried to put this
priest-clown figure of Mrozek before us.
After all, perhaps, we are all the time
wondering where the hell is that blasted
party? If it is not here, when we are still
eagerly waiting for it? where is it?
Manabendra Bandydpadhyay
seriously. "The Pyx" starts out with a few
good ideas: a clever technical device,
some trite and true characters, and a
theme which is at least marketable; black
magic and occult Roman Catholicism.
However, in attempting to deal with the
subtle aspects of Catholicism as they
wreak havoc with lapsed souls, the filmmakers are way out of their depths.
Karen Black plays a Montreal prostitute
and heroin addict, naturally from a good
Catholic family, whose room-mate is a
neurotic male homosexual. Isn't it
amazing how the people who make these
films manage to gratuitously stuff in every
topical aspect of contemporary urban
society? At the beginning of the film she is
murdered, and Christopher Plummer, a
police detective (with a Quebecois sidekick of course) begins to investigate the
crime. The rest of the film flashes forward
and back, showing the events that lead up
to the murder, and the process of solving
it. The editing is well done, but doesn't
come close to saving the movie. Black and
Plummer both walk through the film
showing as little emotion as possible;
admittedly, the script doesn't give them
much of a chance to do more than look
pretty and/or puzzled.
Everybody in the film is a lapsed
Catholic, it seems, except for the villains,
who are busy worshipping the anti-Christ.
The arch-villain is a millionaire-recluse
(!!!) who wants to use Ms. Black as an
agent for defiling the sacrament. Exactly
how this was to be done remains a secret,
but there are lots of possibilities for a vivid
imagination, (this whole silly and sordid
business takes place during a black mass,
with Black lying on a table with her legs
spread open and her "vestements" up
around her waist) because despite the fact
that she is stoned on both heroin and a
mystery drug-, the hooker's Catholic upbringing leaps to the fore. She grabs the
pyx and pops the wafer in her mouth, thus
ruining both the black mass and her
chances for survival. When Plummer
catches up with the villain, he suddenly
remembers his Sunday school lessons, and
in a fit of piety he empties his revolver into
the self-styled Satan.
The point of this plot summary is not
simply to keep people from seeing the
movie. It is rather to indicate its most
annoying aspect, the use of half-baked
reflections on an important social and
emotional issue to lend integrity to a
sensationalist film. Catholicism in Quebec
has held an enormous political and
emotional stranglehold on the general
populace for centuries, and if it's
political power has waned, the emotional
repercussions remain incredibly complex.
The hassles arising out of the conflict
between modern urban life and the tenets
of Catholicism cannot be summed up by
having prostitutes weeping enigmatically,
or in vague allusions to feelings of guilt.
If this film was to be simply a thriller,
then it should have confined its use of
religion to the superficially shocking. The
more subtle effects of religion in contemporary Montreal deserve and in fact
require a much more intelligent approach.

SCB cine
Robert Altman, scion of the big hoppers, has his gravy train hit M.A.S.H. to
ye olde SUB CINE featured this
weekend. Altman's film, a pop
sociological (Pauline Kael?) ramparts
romp, a hit among the anti-war subcultures of the "NO NO WE WON'T GO"
generation, brings its slash happy
surgical absurdities to the screen in the
irrepressible persons of Captain Hawk-
eye Pierce (Donald Sutherland) and
"Trapper John" (Elliot Gould). Their
refreshingly trite ironic stabs at the
"little murders" of modern warfare are
quite comically logical in their absurdities — at least logical enough for the
protest generation to embrace their
antics with an adamant "RIGHT ON!"
The film's soaring popularity has even
engendered a rather sickeningly funny
teevee serial (bloodless laughter —
painless death) that after you've giggled
ambivalently over having seen a couple,
one can only wish it the same painful
anesthetized death. But the film's innate
madness, from golf to hand grenades,
naked nurses to splattered corpses and
mashed helicopter bones (le grim
reminders) is aimed directly at Altman's
essential ironic comment on the self-
defeating fate of war in general.
The mad antics of the "swampmen"
from the "last supper" sham of "Suicide
is Painless" (re: painless insanity,
surgery, laughter and death, etc.) to the
comic "gashousing" of the fixed football
game are indeed quite refreshingly insane to see. Even if you've caught Alt-
man's g.a.s.h.e.d. humor before at the
height of its popularity, seeing M.A.S.H.
again this weekend can at least provide
escapist entertainment if you dig its
brand of (har har?) bloodstains. SUB

Super studs
There is a small store located at 1151 Davie,
just across the street from the Rembrandt Hotel,
that sells some rather novel merchandise. Ultra
Love sells sexual accoutrements — gadgets
which heighten sexual pleasure and help one
achieve sexual satisfaction.
Ultra Love's products range from humorous
posters and light switch covers — one has a
caricature of Nixon on it and when it is mounted
the light switch becomes his phallus — to orgy
jellies (sweet scented and edible), dildoes,
vibrators, attachments like hair brushes for the
male and female genitals, prophylactics and
pairs of little spheres which women are supposed
to insert in their vaginas to achieve orgasm.
(They are available in both the manual and
electric models.)
Ultra Love is owned by three Vancouver
businessmen and it is the only outlet they have at
present. The store is patterned after various
European and American sex-shops.
The owners originally planned to open their
shop in Gastown, but the other merchants in the
area thwarted their efforts because their theme
was not consistent with the image of Gastown.
The atmosphere inside the store is quiet and
subdued. An inhibited customer would be put to
ease by the soothing strains of piped music and,
also, all the different products have a heart-
shaped sign beside them, detailing the function
of each. This would allow a person to find out
about any item in the store without one asking a
seemingly embarrassing question: "Excuse me,
how does this rubber thing — ah — work?"
Ultra Love imports its merchandise from the
U.S., Japan and Europe. However, there were no
bizarre products visible, such as whips, inflatable rubber girls, chains, or other sadomasochistic implements. As a matter of fact, the
content seemed quite tame in comparison to
what one can order through the mails.
A saleswoman who has worked at Ultra Love
since its inception eleven months ago, Judy
Carpe, said that the items stocked in the store
are meant to be "therapeutic". She went on to
say that the majority of their clientele are in
their forties and fifties.
Carpe said that some sexually frustrated
people do confide in the salespeople. She said
they try and counsel them as best they can. And
they advise them which device would best suit
their individual needs and tastes.
It is interesting to note that most passersby
gaze at the store's display window instead of
walking stiffly by. Another point is the fact that a
store of Ultra Love's nature is not hidden in the
depths of Skid Row, but located in a somewhat
better area. It would seem that Vancouverites
have come to accept this little boutique on Davie
and, therefore, it would appear that Vancouverites have matured with respect to their
ability to come to grips with what used to be the
old "unquestionable" morality.
Boyd McConnell
Pure baroque
At Sunday's L'Age d'Or concert we heard
Vivaldi performed as few of us have heard it
before. It took some getting used to. The first
items on the program, two "Concerti Ripieni",
sounded oddly thin and unsure to the modern
ear. One wondered if non-authentic Vivalidi was
preferable after all.
But the concert quickly picked up. The second
item on the program, a viola d'amore concerto,
was easily the popular favorite of the evening.
The virtuoso flourishes never overpowered the
cohesiveness of the work as a whole. Just as the
soloist, Hans-Karl Piltz, stood enclosed by the
orchestra rather than downstage, in "star"
position, so the musical line of the viola d'amore,
extravagant as it was, fitted beautifully into the
total orchestral whole.
It was in this work that the advantages of an
authentic historical rendering of the music
became apparent. As the program notes pointed
out, the use of eighteenth century style strings let
the unique tone of the viola d'amore shine
through as it could not in combination with
modern instruments.
The same unity of sound of the baroque concerto was reproduced in the flute concerto, "La
Pastorella." In this work the contrasting sounds
of Vivaldi were defined. The fast movements had
an exuberance, the central slow movement a
resonant stateliness, that was born of the
baroque flute's soft yet ringing sound, a sound
which differs dramatically from the flute's
modern metal counterpart.
The "Stabat Mater" is an unusual and moving
work, and was beautifully performed by soprano
Phyllis Mailing. The relentlessness of Vivaldi's
sequences transforms the unrestrained dolour of
a woman's grief at the death of her first-born into
a universal and therefore glorious declaration of
love. Miss Mailing's performance struck the
perfect balance of emotion and restraint.
The concert ended with the "Concerto in D
minor from 'L'Estro Armonico' ". This work
typified all that is appealing in Vivaldi — a
transparent sound in which the integrity of each
line is maintained. It is a sound whose magic lies
not in mystery of its production but in the understanding.
The promised recorder concerto was absent
due to the soloisVs appendicitis. It would have
been a nice touch to have performed Marin
Marais' "Gall-Bladder Operation" in sympathy.
However, recorder afficionados take cheer. The
next main series concert of the Vancouver
Society for Early Music, Feb. 24, features Frans
Brueggen playing recorder and baroque flute.

High turnout needed for effective poll
By JAKE van der KAMP
A 20 per cent turnout is needed to
make the referendum on what
students would like to see done to
the University Endowment Lands
effective according to AMS external affairs officer Doug Brock.
Brock told The Ubyssey a high
turnout is necessary if the
government is going to take
students' views on the UEL
seriously. A lower turnout will give
the governemnt the impression
students are apathetic on the issue,
he said.
Students will be asked whether
they prefer to see the UEL turned
into student and cost-control
housing, single-family dwellings, a
park like Stanley Park,
recreational land, or left in its
natural undeveloped state.
The ballot will be preferential or
can be marked with a single x.
Brock said he has invited
provincial housing minister Lome
Nicholson to come to UBC Nov. 9 to
talk about the endowment lands.
He said he also wanted to invite

cuts profs'
CALGARY (CUP) — To" counteract a budget deficit of $876,000,
the University of Calgary board of
governors has decided to cut
teachers salaries by lowering
travel grants for professors on
sabatticals and renegotiating
contracts with professors who
teach in continuing education
The contracts for continuing
education profs now run from eight
to 10 months.
A large honorarium also paid
professors who stay and teach in
the spring and summer session.
There is also an opportunity
professors to take on consulting
and speaking assignments off
campus in the summer months.
If the contracts are renegotiated
for 12 months, the professors will
be obliged to stay over the summer
or stand a loss of salary. University administrators expect to save
$452,000 by renegotiating these
The baard also decided to try to
make a profit on the university's
parking lots to provide up to $40,000
in additional revenue.
The parking lots were previously
operating on a break even basis.

professor, Stan Godberg, a commerce professor specializing in
urban land economics, and Dick
Seaton, an architecture professor.
Brock said he hoped to spend
about $100 on publicizing the
"I'm planning to get posters
done by the arts and crafts society
and may possibly get printed
posters done by College Printers.
We may also put an ad in The
Ubyssey," he said.
The major purpose of the poll
will be to give the AMS council
some idea of how to "steer their
way" in dealing with the government on the UEL, Brock said.
Council approved the wording
and the date of the referendum
Wednesday night.
Council also approved a motion
to support a Chilean demonstration
noon Saturday at the courthouse.
The demonstration is in support of
the resistance to the military
dictatorship in Chile.
A    poster    advertising    the
demonstration asks demonstrators
to demand the government in
Ottawa grant asylum to people
leaving Chile with refugee status.
The poster cites a report 150
refugees waiting in Argentina are
faced with deportation and have
requested asylum in Canada.
A film will be shown 2 p.m.
Saturday at King George Secondary School, 1755 Barclay, entitled
When the People Awake.
Council further approved buying
a quarter page ad in The .Ubyssey
to advertise the demonstration.
The money for this ad was taken
from the speakers and education
committees' budget.
UBC spends $100 million
UBC's administration collected and disposed of
over $100 million last year according to a financial
statement issued by the finance department.
Income for the year totalled $110,992,185 and
expenditures totalled $100,547,474.
The difference between the two figures is because
several 1971-72 sums were carried over into last
year's statement. Capital funds of $5.3 million could
not be spent in 1971-72 because the construction for
which it was intended was delayed. Another $483,292
was also carried over as an extra from endowment
and student loan funds.
The financial statement also shows $9,796,515 —
less than 10 per cent of the total amount — comes
from student fees. This figure may be misleading,
however, because UBC does a great deal of research
for private interests whose expenses are also included in the statement.
The greatest contributor to UBC's finances was
the provincial government which gave $58,500,000.
The federal government contributed nothing aside
from what it gave to research.
Fellowships, scholarships and bursaries
amounted to $2,344,441 of the expenditures.
UBC's ancillary services such as residences and
the bookstore lost $134,682. The only service showing
a profit was UBC's oyster river farm which made

Photographer needed
"Oh golly!" said the sports staff again yesterday.
Why are we constantly saying such vile things, is the question being
asked around the news room? It's because the sports page does not have
a photographer yet. This means waiting to set up the page while the
hard-pressed photo-staff of the paper tries to make time to do our stuff.
It means we are advertising for a snorts photographer.
If you're interested in photography, particularly sports shots, (we
ain't particular), come on up to 241K and become part of the blessed
Ubyssey staff.
For a sweetener, we have a darkroom, and oh gee, free film too.
Please come soon, you big, handsome, picture-taker you, your children
are waiting for your first coming.
Football's last stand
The Thunderbird football team is meeting the
University of Alberta Golden Bears this Saturday in
Thunderbird Stadium at 2 p.m. for the last home
game of the season.
Bird head coach Norm Thomas said he rated the
Bears as the number one team in Western Conference
play. The Alberta team is presently in third place in
the standings but could conceivably finish first in a
three way tie with Manitoba and Saskatchewan. This
can come by the Bears defeating Manitoba and the
Birds beating Saskatchewan in games next week.
However, if Alberta loses to the Birds Saturday,
then they have no chance at gaining a playoff berth.
There is an intangible reward for UBC if they win.
The Alberta team beat the Simon Fraser Clansmen in
an exhibition game last week. If UBC can then turn
around and defeat the Bears it will mean a great deal
in recruiting for next year. Much of the prestige of a
scholarship offered by Simon Fraser would be cancelled.
Thomas said the team is about the same as it has
been all season. However, replacing the injured
flanker, Bill Baker, is Bill Macaulay from the split
end position. Filling Macaulay's spot will be Jim Hill
who played the position during most of the Manitoba
game after Baker's injury.
Lost to the team for the rest ol the year is Wayne
Johnson who played flanker. Baker might play but js
a doubtful starter. Thomas said if Baker does dress,
he will be used as a defensive safety.
The Bird game plan includes bootlegs, halfback
options, and throwbacks. "The offence has taken a
long time to jell but I think after the game in
Manitoba it's beginning to grow," Thomas said.
Thomas said a sloppy field will probably work to
Manitoba's advantage since the Birds are a slower
team than the Bears.
Thomas said he changed the alignment on the
speciality teams for two reasons: To give better
coverage on punts which UBC has been deficient
through the year, and to stop the outside rush the
Alberta club has traditionally placed on the kicker.
The game is important to both clubs and should be a
headknocker. If UBC can play 60 minutes of good
football they might be able to pull an upset, otherwise
it will be a lop-sided contest.
Hockey starts against best
The UBC hockey season officially begins tonight as the
Thunderbirds clash with the
Calgary Dinosaurs at 8 p.m. in the
Winter Sports Centre.
"Everyone has the butterflies
about the upcoming game," said
Thunderbird coach Bob Hindmarch, "but I think we're ready."
"I've always respected Calgary
and they're probably the team to
beat this season. They have the
same team back from last year
while we've had a turnover of six
players. Also, they have eight
league pre-season games behind
them and we had one. Little things
like this add up and give Calgary a
slight advantage.
"We have a strong team. We've
been practicing two hours a day
and you won't see better skating
than what we've got. I'm anxious
to see where UBC stands and this
week-end should be a pretty good
played for the Japanese National.
team last year.
Hindmarch anticipates a crowd
of about 2,200 fans for this
evening's game.
The Thunderbirds will play
again Saturday afternoon at 3:15
p.m. for the John Owen memorial
All indications seem to point to a
successful season for the Thunderbirds.

Straight bid halted
The Alma Mater Society council Wednesday
refused to back a bid by a third year law student to
take the AMS-Georgia Straight dispute to student
Council took the action after learning that the
dispute could go to the court without AMS
Randy Zien had requested the AMS ask the
student court to rule on the legality of council's action
banning free on-campus distribution of the Straight.
But grad studies representative Bob Angus objected saying if council backed Zien's request it
would appear that it was divided on the issue when
actually it wasn't.
Angus said he thought the case could go before
student court whether or not the society gave permission.
Loomes then read a passage from the constitution which said any student could take a case to
the court simply by contacting the court clerk who
would then call the judiciary body together.
AMS treasurer John Wilson said he thinks the
case will probably be a waste of time since by-law
12.3 of the constitution gives the society power to bar
distribution of outside publications.
But law representative Gordon Turriff said the
clause is open to dispute because it may be in
terpreted to read that the society has power only to
bar students from distributing outside publications.
Council voted Oct. 3 to ban the Straight from free
on-campus distribution after AMS publications
manager John Dufort told them Straight owner Dan
McLeod's plans for a free university edition would
substantially hurt The Ubyssey's advertising
McLeod went ahead with plans anyway and
arrived on campus with 15,000 papers Oct. 4 Only to
have them picked up by students as fast as they were
put down.
McLeod then suspended publication of the
university edition and announced he would consult
civil liberties on the possibility of taking the issue to
the B.C. supreme court.
Instead due to lack of funds McLeod decided this
week to take the dispute "before the students".
In other business co-ordinator Joanne Lindsay
told council the new pit in the SUB basement will
probably open next week.
The official opening is set for Nov. 19 but the
exact date of the informal event will be a surprise
Lindsay said.
She said the SUB management is still reviewing
applications for a business to replace the barber shop
in the SUB basement.
'Only court deters shoplifters'
Ubyssey Crime Reporter
The university bookstore turns
alleged shoplifters over to the
RCMP for prosecution because it
has no other deterrent, store
manager Bob Smith said Thursday.
Smith said the bookstore committee, a faculty-student group,
has suggested in the past
shoplifters be dealt with through
the Alma Mater Society student
court or by the faculty council or
that shoplifters work for the
"You're in a very tricky position
because you're basically making a
civilian arrest when you stop a
shoplifter," said Smith.
Bookstore security workers
normally stop a person suspected
of taking merchandise outside the
store and ask him or her to come
back into the store.
"Now you can say to the person
you come in Saturday and wash my
windows or go to court," he said.
"But if the person goes to court he
can tell the court he was coerced —
the bookstore is in trouble."
Smith said if a student was taken
to student court and found innocent
of the charges then the student
could sue the bookstore or Smith.
Seven persons, of whom six were
students, appeared in university
provincial court Wednesday
charged with theft under $50.
Two were remanded, one had his
charge dismissed, four were
convicted and given conditional
discharges and one-year
A police spokesman said 14
persons of whom 12 were students
have been charged with theft under
$50 so far this year. The spokesman
said 26 persons were charged last
The bookstore started turning
shoplifters over to the police in
August, 1971.
Smith, when assistant manager
in 1971, told The Ubyssey the store
lost $250,000 the year before,
$12,500 through theft.

March and Teach-in
in solidarity with the people of Chile
The spirit of resistance to the military dictatorship in Chile grows stronger each day. In opposition to
the internal repression of the workers' movement and outside support for the 'junta' from the U.S.
and other countries with vested interests, we in Canada must do everything we can to defend the
Chilean people.
Specifically, we should demand that our government in Ottawa grant asylum to persons leaving Chile
with refugee status. For example, in Buenos Aires; airport 150 refugees facing deportation from Argentina have requested asylum in Canada.
The AM.S. urges all students to attend this action.
Gather at 12:30 at the Courthouse,
and march to the Immigration
office at 1550 Alberni.
Starting at 2:00 at King George Secondary School
(1755 Barclay), with a 60-minute colour film on
