Array , AMS knocked in Straight dispute
Court preparations lazy*
Student court Thursday censured the Alma Mater Society
student council for not preparing a
defence against the challenge the
Georgia Straight newspaper
seisure in October was unconstitutional.
Court was adjourned until Jan.
15 to allow the AMS to arrange for
counsel and prepare a case.
Chief justice Hamar Foster
criticized the AMS inaction saying:
"The court wishes to express its
disapproval of the inactivity of
AMS council in preparing for this
Foster said he regretted having
the court adjourn because: "This
is asking the applicants (law
students Randy Zien and Rick
Ballantyne) to indulge in the incompetence of council."
However Foster said he agreed
the case would receive a fairer
hearing if the AMS was allowed to
prepare a case.
However Foster warned AMS
treasurer John Wilson,
representing the AMS, that if the
AMS was unprepared again the
court would proceed with the case
Wilson said he was unable to
speak for council as a whole as to
shy a defence had not been
prepared but admitted later
council had been "lethargic" in the
Wilson said the AMS had been
officially advised of the
proceedings by court clerk Bill
Awmack two weeks ago and
council had only authorized
preparation of a defence a week
Wilson said council had been
advised by AMS lawyers to have a
law student represent it but said he
had been reluctant to contact any
law students because he did not
want preparing the case to interfere with their imminent
Ballantyne criticized the AMS
for their inaction and said: "In the
interest of students, consideration
of the case should have been made
by the AMS before now."
Ballantyne first asked the court
re-convene on Dec. 20 rather than
in January, saying he believed this
would give the AMS amply opportunity to prepare a case.
Zien said: "Certain principles
are involved here and the longer it
takes to settle this case the more
obscure the principles become."
Justice Rob McDiarmid said he

WILSON ... for the defence?
thought the Dec. 20 proposal was
"It is in the best interests of the
students that this case should be
settled when students and press
are around so people can knowwhat
is going on."
McDiarmid also said he believed
it was unfair to the applicants to
put off the case at the convenience
of the AMS but said under the
circumstances a post-Christmas
hearing would be in the best interests of all concerned.
Zien and Ballantyne, also acting
on behalf of the B.C. Civil Liberties
Association, are challenging the
interpretation of AMS bylaw 12(3)
by which the AMS claimed the
right to confiscate the Straight.
The Bylaw reads: "No
publications or advertisements
whatsoever shall be printed or
displayed or distributed and no
member of the Society shall attempt to sell or dispose of any
publications or advertisements on
the campus of the University
without first having secured
premission of the co-ordinator of
activities, whose decision shall be
subject to review by the student's
In an Oct. 3 meeting council
turned down application by
Straight publisher Dan McLeod to
distribute his paper free on
Zien and Ballantyne contend the
bylaw does not give AMS
jurisdiction over non-AMS
members and therefor the confiscation was illegal.
After the hearing Zien said in an
interview he and Ballantyne
wanted to question the validity of
the entire AMS constitution.
"The most useful by-product of
this case may well be to get a
definite definition of the constitution and the powers of the
AMS,"Zien said.

volunteered their time to settle a dispute which could in the end cost the AMS their

law students. Hearings are adjourned until January to give the AMS time to defend
itself from its own constitution.
Heroin reform needed
By JAKE van der KAMP
Canadian prisons whould have a
heroin treatment system in which
addicts are given heroin instead of
having to get it illegally a Matsqui
* prison inmate said Thursday.
Dywayne Calvert, serving time
at Matsqui medium security institute for robbery and parole
breaking, said this would be the
only solution to the addiction
problem. There is no cure for the
addict and the problem is basically
a medical one not a criminal one,
*af he said.
Calvert, three other inmates, a
security officer and the director of
programs at Matsqui prison were
taking part in a panel discussion
attended by about 100 people in the
SUB club lounge.
"I've been a junkie," Calvert
said. "The crimes I've committed
I've done to get heroin. If I had got
* heroin on a prescription as a
registered addict I wouldn't have
done them."
He said he knew of someone who
had gone to England to get on a
heroin treatment program of the
kind he recommended and after
being on, the program for a while
said he J was getting bored with
heroin and thought it was a "dirty
"This is the way to do it,"
Calvert said. "There is no cure for
addiction and I think people should
realize it and give addicts their
Glen Cross, the director of
programs said he was sympathetic
to Calvert's ideas on the subject.
"It would solve a lot of problems
if we had a heroin program in
prison," he said. "Methadone
doesn't work. We've tried it and
thrown it out, and we're not
pushing that program anymore."
However, Cross said there were
problems in giving heroin to addicts in prison because conceivably
non-addicts could become addicts
. that way.
Cross said at present if an inmate is caught with heroin he is
immediately sent back to the B.C.
He said inmates will always find
a way of bringing drugs inside the
prison but at the moment there is
no real drug problem at Matsqui.
About sixty per cent of the inmates
at Matsqui are there for drug-
related offenses he said, but when
they come there they have usually
been off dope for some time
The inmates also said the
rehabilitation program is not
working as well as prison officials
would have them believe.
"Rehabilitation is a crock of
shit; it doesn't work with so many
people," said Calvert.
He said there are few options
open to people in Matsqui. If the
things available to a person are not
suited to him, it is just too bad and
"nothing can be done for him."
Peter Bergen, another inmate,
"Rehabilitation comes from
yourself when you're ready for it,"
he said. "Programs can't do it."
Cross disagreed, saying there
are $3 million worth of workshops
at Matsqui in which anyone could
learn a trade— as well as a
program for university education.
The inmates protested th$t this is
"Since the beginning of this year
only three certificates have been
handed out, and there are 360
people there," said Calvert. "Only
a few inmates do industrial work.
Most of them just drink coffee and
mop floors.
"Besides the instructors are not
certified. You have to go to Burnaby Vocational School afterwards
or at least write a test there and if
you can't get a temporary absence
you can't write the test.
All the inmates agreed prison
could corrupt an inmate.
"I think it's very true that
hardened offenders corrupt first-
time convicts," said inmate Peter
He cited the case of an inmate
who had been sentenced to six
years when he was only 17 years
old and said he would be twisted
when he got out because he had
spent all that time associating with
people much older than him.
Cross said he agreed with
Bergen's assessment of the
"Judges will sometimes sentence a person to six years because
he wants him to serve at least two.
I've heard them say that," he said.
"I see people who are ready to go
out in a year but we are paying
$12,000 a year to keep them there
because the judge has said so," he
Calvert complained the court
systems are antiquated and judges

unrealistic in the sentences they
hand out.
Some judges never get into a
prison," he said. "They'll send
people to prison for 10-15 years and
never know where they're sending
Calvert said the defense lawyers
who helped him are not of much
use and are not concerned with the
people they are defending.
"I was tried in Nanaimo where
they have a rotating system. A
Lawyer may defend you one week
and be the prosecutor the next
week," he said.
He asked how many people attending the meeting had ever been
inside a prison. About ten out of the
hundred said they had.
Calvert also said prison officials
have become more restrictive in
the matter of paroles and temporary absences.
"A year ago there were 108
temporary absences a month but
now we're down to 40," he said.
Cross admitted this is true and
said things have been tightened up
at the directions of the new
Solicitor-General Warren Allmand
because a lot of inmates had been
"misusing their privileges."
When asked what inmates did to
those who had taken advantage of
a temporary absence inmate Bill
Joyce said, "Well, you pat him on
the back and ask him if he had a
good time."
The audience was generally
surprised when Calvert detailed
what the isolation cells, in which
inmates are put when they break
the rules, are like.
"There are two kinds of solitary
confinement," he said.
"Segregation, where you get a
mattress and you can smoke, and
isolation where they give you a
mattress and take it away in the
morning. In isolation you get a
Bible which is the only thing you
can read."
Calvert said people have gotten
isolation forswearing at a guard or
for having a five dollar bill, and
said deterrents of this kind are
sufficient to keep people in line.
He said inmates whom prison
officials don't like because they are
politically active are transferred to
another institution and all inmates
conspicuous by their activities are
open to this.
"Yeah,  you  get   hassled,"   he
said. "You're open to more and
you're seen more. If you're on a
committee you're susceptible to
being kidnapped at any time and
carted off."
AMS approval
for CYVR hook-up
Radio station CYVR has been given approval to hook into one of the
four vacant channels in the SUB listening lounge.
Alma Mater Society student council Wednesday approved up to $100 to
pay costs for the hook-up. The lounge currently has eight channels
providing various types of music.
CYVR staffer Tom Quill said the hookup will go ahead as soon as
Graeme Vance, SUB building manager, "can get going on it.
"We've been waiting to do this for a long time. The student-run radio
station should have been included into the listening room when it was
first built," Quill said.
He also said the station was considering the feasability of broadcasting on the FM radio band. "Several other campus radio stations
back east already are aired to the public and we think we could to it
too "

Pool committee parity a first
For one of the few times in UBC's
history students will have parity
with the administration on a
decision-making body.
That body will be the $2.8 million
covered pool's planning committee
empowered to make pertinent
decisions about the pool's
development until its completion
date in about 1-1/2 years.
When the pool is finished a
permanent pool management
committee will be formed on which
students will also have parity
representation, Alma Mater vice-
president Gordie Blankstein said
The planning committee, approved unanimously by AMS
council Wednesday, will have a
total of 14 members; five student
representatives, five from the
administration, and four people
chosen equally by the AMS and the
administration to represent the
Both the studeents and the administration, in effect, will have
equal power, and both sides may
veto committee decisions.
Former  AMS   president   Doug
Aldridge said at the council
meeting Wednesday he cannot
foresee the administration being
able to take power out of AMS
hands. He said the student money
has had a lot of strings attached in
the past.
Aldridge was referring to
student contributions which will
amount to $925,000 of the pool's
total $2.8 million cost. (Both the
administration and a communtiy
fund raising drive will raise the
Blankstein said the management
agreement between the AMS and
the board of governors "is committed to give equal representation
on management" to student and
administration     representatives.
However, he said, planning
committee decisions "at all times
will have to come back to the board
of governors for ratification."
He said he didn't want the pool
"to just be the project of the seven
people" on the planning committee. He said, at each stage in
the planning, open meetings will be
held to get "student feedback."
The student representatives to
the committee are: .Aldridge,
Blankstein, former AMS coordinator Bob Angus, AMS general
manager Bern Grady and SUB
building manager Graeme Vance.
Council will approve the student-
appointed community representatives next week.
UBC information officer Jim
Banham said he did not know who
will be on the administration's part
of the committee.
However, swimming instructor
Jack Pomfret, who chaired the
original committee which planned
the student referendum, will chair
the first meeting of the new
committee which will meet after
other administration representatives are approved. Administration names mentioned at
the council meeting Wednesday
include Pomfret, administration
vice-president Bill Armstrong, and
one representative each from the
academic planning and physical
plant departments.

of MacMillan Bloedel, to be on the

Snipers glare across civic party line
Two of Vancouver's civic
parties found some common
ground during a debate here
Wednesday — and stood glaring at
each other across it.
Aid. Mike Harcourt, of The
Electors Action Movement, and
Michael Francis, president of the
Non-Partisan Association, agreed
there should be changes in electoral laws to encourage civic
candidates from working class
Both even agreed the way to do
this is to raise aldermanic salaries
and bring in laws assuring job
security for workers leaving to
take elected office.
But that was about the extent of
their agreement.
Speaking to a political science
class in the physics building,
Harcourt and Francis, an NPA
aldermanic candidate in the last
election, described the internal
organization of their own group —
as well as sniping at that of the

problem is their lack of

Barber trimmed by AMS
Barber   George   Ponomarenko   says   he's
getting a bad deal from the Alma Mater Society
? for giving him one month's notice to vacate his
shop-in the SUB basement.
Ponomarenko, in an interview Thursday,
named SUB Building manager Graeme Vance
as "the culprit and stumbling block" of what
he calls "the lack of communication between
the AMS and their tenants."
Ponomarenko said the first he heard about a
pizza shop replacing his barbershop was in
^Tuesday's edition of The Ubyssey. Wednesday
he  received  formal  notification  from  AMS
general manager B. A. Grady.
Grady said he is new at UBC and did not
know all the facts surrounding the case. He said
he only wanted to get things done and when the
SUB management committee decided to use
the space for a pizzaria he notified
Michael O'Connor, president of the law
„ students' association said legally
Ponomarenko cannot do anything. However,
"the issue is that the AMS acted in a highly
unethical manner," he said.
O'Connor said he suspected Ponomarenko
was being shafted. Two years ago,
Ponomarenko received a letter from a lawyer
advising him he was to vacate the premises in
one month. However, he still had two years left
on his lease. Consequently, he hired a lawyer
and continued up until his lease ran out on Sept.
30 and has been operating on a month to month
basis since.
Ponomarenko said he talked to Vance last
February about his tenancy. He said Vance
didn't come up with anything definite. Further
attempts to get Vance to tell about the status of
his shop failed, Ponomarenko said.
O'Connor produced a letter from Vance,
dated Sept. 5 asking Ponomarenko to submit a
bid for the barbershop space.
He did and then received another letter from
Vance on Oct. 3. (In it, Vance-said "I expect
that it will be several months before a final
decision is taken on the disposition of this (the
barbershop space.")
Ponomarenko said he did not feel his space
was in jeopardy because Vance's letter intimated it would be a few months before
anything would be done.
"You don't want to be thrown out on your
ass," he said. "A month, especially in winter,
isn't much time to get rid of all my equipment,"
he continued.
"I'm mad because there was no communication between me and the AMS,"
Ponomarenko said.
AMS co-ordinator Joanne Lindsay said she
had a meeting with Ponomarenko a few weeks
ago to ask him if he could show that the barbershop was a service to the students.
"We just wanted to let him have his say
although we were pretty sure that it (the
barbershop) wasn't providing a service to the
students," Lindsay said.
Ponomarnko charged that the people at the
meeting did not know any of the facts and
figures about his operation. "The AMS
associates the amount of money brought in with
the service something provides," he said.

Francis described the group's
actions during this period as "not

and trustworthy" but said as
aldermen grew old in office, the
NPA stagnated.
He said the group is now meeting
to consider changes in strategy,
although the grey-on-grey dressed
lawyer frowned down suggestions
from Harcourt that NPA is now
consciously forming policy.
"We still believe in electing the
best possible people without tying
them to a party line," he said.
Answered Harcourt: "I don't see
how you can say that. Because of
the tone of the people in the
backroom selecting the candidates, you're only going to get

Harcourt labelled TEAM "more
honest" in publicizing their policy,
which he said is geared towards
controlled growth.
He also said the split Francis
alluded to on electoral reform,
when some aldermen supported a
partial ward system while other
aldermen and the party membership supported a full ward
system, showed no new major

AUS victory
campus win
OK, people gather together because today The
Ubyssey is going to talk about student representation —
Student representation remains mired in the myriad
bureaucracies of arts dean Doug Kenny's Buchanan empire
and the senate.
It is a struggle students have had to force on faculty.
Last spring, senate appeared willing to accept proportional
student representation on various academic bodies on
However, Kenny now says he will not keep within the
spirit of the senate decision. The senate has meekly
acquiesced before his just plain bad-ass behavior.
Part of the problem is that the arts faculty seems to
back Kenny up — crotchety old windbags like Malcolm
McGregor still seem to have a major say in determining
faculty policy.
People like McGregor would have us believe life should
be compartmentalized. As a student, one should politely
listen while those who know better tell you the way things
are. Then, on some magical day when the student graduates,
preferably with a PhD, he or she magically becomes an adult
and gets to tell other people the ways things are.
Unfortunately, under this system people usually end
up telling others the ways things were — before the Great
This won't do.
The reasons for students representation are
self-evident: it gives students some control of their life, of
their education.
Without that control, people tend to behave in
alienated ways —■ they come to lectures, they go to the
library, they leave campus.
They only act out the motions of "getting an
education" — something many people are starting to
seriously disparage.
This won't do either.
The original senate guidelines do not represent the
epitome of enlightened policy, but they were a step in the
right direction.
In keeping with the spirit of those guidelines, it is
politically realistic to suggest that initial representation in
the arts faculty would be 15 to 20 per cent — about 85
students on the faculty council. Kenny has only proposed
23 students. Elections should be conducted by the
undergraduate society, which would permit open debate,
not by the registrar, not in secret, as Kenny proposes. Of
course, first and second year students should have
representation, which Kenny is quite prepared to deny.
However, because of Kenny's senate offensive against
students, the advance of student power across campus could
be thwarted.
So it is now back to the arts undergraduate society,
put in the position of going through the whole silly business
Bill Moen and the AUS are just not carrying on the
fight for arts. Their struggle against Kenny and his faculty
represents a struggle against obstructionist professors in the
senate who will listen to Kenny and "keep the students in
their place."
The student's place is in decision-making bodies. When
the arts faculty finally realizes that, so will the rest of the
campus. An AUS victory will be a campus-wide victory.

The letter of Nathan Davidowicz
and Jean Gerber in the Nov. 8
paper concerning the petition that
"the department of religious
studies should offer modern
Hebrew language and literature
courses instead of or in conjunction
with the biblical Hebrew courses"
interests and alarms me at the
same time. It alarms me because it
suggests that such courses be
possibly offered instead of
classical (biblical) Hebrew at the
time when the signatories of the
letter are moved by their
legitimate concern for the study of
the "rich language and literary
heritage" of the Jewish people.
By proposing the possibility of
the dismissal of courses in biblical
Hebrew the signatories are
suggesting that the foundation of
this heritage should be discarded
in favor of something else. To
dismiss the language of the basic
document of Israel's faith is to
deny the very basis of the Jewish
Hebrew is a living language with
a very profound literary heritage.
In the history of this language —
dating back to the 12th century
B.C. — there are various stages of
development. The earliest is the
biblical period with the Hebrew
Bible as its basic literary legacy.
After the biblical period, Mishnaic
Hebrew was born. This is based on
biblical Hebrew but has considerable influences from
Aramaic. It differs from biblical
Hebrew in grammar, vocabulary
and diction. Rabbinic Hebrew,
which followed, was again based
on biblical Hebrew as well as the
Mishnaic version. For historical
reasons it is much influenced by
Arabic. In all stages' of the
development of the Hebrew
language one finds an abundance
of literary material reflecting the
ideas and culture of the Jewish
people. Then there is modern
Hebrew (one should not also deny
Yiddish its legitimate
significance). Modern Hebrew,
which is biblical Hebrew reborn,
thanks largely to the work of Ben
Yehuda in the last centurey, has its
own literary corpus.
In the department of religious
studies we have been concerned
with instruction in the foundation
of Jewish (as well as Christian and
Muslim) thought: the biblical
period. We have, for example,
offerings in the religious thought of
ancient Israel. This is the reason
why we have introduced (and not
without     difficulty)      biblical
Hebrew. It is hoped that we will
soon offer courses in Judaism. I
am enthusiastically in favor of
introducing courses in the
language of the Talmud (Mishnaic
Hebrew) and later Jewish religious
Studying Israel and its literary
(secular) heritage is another area
which I also favor. That study must
be accompanied by the study of
modern (Israeli) Hebrew.
However, Israel does not stand in
geographical isolation. There is a
vast area extending from the
Pamirs to the Mediterranean
unfortunately neglected in the
offerings of this university. In
addition to Israel and the Arab-
speaking countries there are also
Turkey, Iran and Afghanistan, as
well as Armenia and Uzbekistan,
that are awaiting offerings and
research. However, the study of
the languages and the literary
heritage of this vast area (call it
western and central Asia) does not
come under the jurisdiction of the
department of religious studies,
concerned with the study of the
religious thought of this area, as

I wish Davidowicz, Gerber and
the other signatories would alter
their petition to make it read as
"The undersigned request the
administration of the University of
British Columbia, as finances
permit, to consider offering
courses in the languages and
civilizations of Western and
Central Asia. The area, extending
from India to the Mediterranean
should surely have her rich
heritage studied on such a large
campus as ours, especially in view
of the fact that it is one of the main
pivots of our civilization."
Such a request, strictly
academic in its motivation, would
have not only my own support and
signature but, I am certain, that of
many others among students and

When utilized to its greatest
potential, humor can be a powerful
device for exposing those things in
our society which deserve ridicule.
Simple and direct, as D.H.
Lawrence has said, "the joke hits
us squarely in the guts," and its
entertaining quality gives it the
potential of very diverse appeal.
Yet, the joke can be a very
dangerous weapon because it is
prone to express even in its attack
on the ridiculous, the perversity
and bigotry of our culture. That
which is "funny" is not necessarily
good humor. We have only to
reflect for a moment on the
prevalence of the "sick" joke to
realize how abundant is humor
which reinforces hate, racism, and
Ken Dodd's article about the
recent Cheech and Chong
presentation identified one of the
problems very accurately. Dodd
was 'right-on' when he criticized
several of the skits by Cheech and
Chong, such as the "Tricky Dick, *
Limp Dick" routine, which attacked the right things in a sick
To attack the hypocrisy and
corruption of our society in a sexist
or racist manner, is to be a
hypocrite since at the same time
you are identifying and mocking
social and political ills, you are
reinforcing social sickness.
Evidently this was the case in
your "funny" article entitled,
royal wedding consummated. For
if there is much to be chastised
concerning the royal wedding arid
the royal family itself, to attack
with lines like "She may be horsey
but she's a great lay", is to entirely
prevert the issue.
Mud-slinging is dangerous no
matter how glorious the cause. If
we're going to lace into the evil and
dirt so prevalent in our environment, let's try to keep it »

Class revolt needed
in Canada—Marxist
Hardial Bains, chairman of the
Communist Party of Canada,
(Marxist-Leninist), says
Canadians must develop both an
anti-imperialist revolution and a
proletarian revolution. He was
speaking at the second part of the
ninth fall symposium on political
economy and stage of revolution in
Canada last Friday.
The symposium was sponsored
by the academic activities club and
the Alma Mater Society speakers
and education committee.
Bains reached this conclusion
after detailing extensively the
development of capitalism in
Canada. He stressed the fact that
Canada came into being as a result
of the needs of the rising European
colonial powers and that the two
major aspects of production in
Canada, production of implements
and machinery and production of
raw material and manufactured
goods have always been dominated
by foreign powers.
He said that in 1497, explorers
came looking for gold. In the 1660s
an economy based on fishing and
the fur trade developed. Then
came the economy based on the
mining and "wheat" economy. The
basis of capital accumulation in
Canada has been foreign investors.
Even today, the amount of capital
generated internally is much less
than external capital and some of it
is the offshoot of capital already
Bains said investigation of the
1837 rebellion, which marked the
political defeat of the small
producers in Canada, would clarify
, their failure to develop into an
indigenous Canadian capitalist
class. The British North America
Act also did not mean political
independence for Canada, but
facilitated the development of
foreign capital internally.
Three: strategies for change in
. Canada were outlined by Bains.
First, advocated by unabashed
representatives of capitalism, is
the straight-forward sell-out of
Canadian resources. Second, that
- put forward by the social fascists,
talks about "sane" development of
capital and exports in Canada.
The CPC (M-L) alone stresses
the necessity of maintaining the
independence of Canada by
liquidating all foreign investment
and generating and controlling the
internal market. As long as foreign
investment continues, Canada will
remain a dependent nation.
* Bains said Canada is one of the
major debtors in the world. Internally, it has a debt around $20
billion dollars and externally owes
around $28 billion. The Canadian
monopoly capitalist class has a
complacent attitude to this fact. He
read a quotation from the Toronto
Star which offered Canadians the
option of giving in to the old imperialist powers or developing ties
with the new imperialist powers.
Bains said not one sentence in
the past 20 years in either the
Toronto Star or the Toronto Globe
and Mail has advocated the idea of
an independent Canada.
Bains said the national
bourgeoisie's control of the implements of production is of
critical importance. Foreign
,_A>mination of the production of the
implements and means of
production is the rule in Canada.
The U.S. owns large amounts of
foreign ownership in the machine
industry, transportation, electrical
manufacture, energy, chemicals,
manufacturing and other sections
of the economy.
From 1827 to 1899, the amount of
r foreign capital from Britain has
increased in Canada. Banking has
been   connected   to   the   British
ruling class through its connection
with the Family Compact. To investigate the role of the banks as a
basis for Canadian capitalism, we
must first consider who they serve,
said Bains. More than 50 per cent
of Canadian capital is invested in
the U.S., while less than 17 per cent
is invested in Asia, Africa and
Latin America. With the
dominance of finance capital,
national capital does not exist.
Finance capital serves the
dominant imperialist powers,
whose collusions and contentions
result in wars to maintain
Bains gave the example of Stelco
to show the dominance of British
and U.S. capital. Stelco came out of
the fusion of five steel companies,
British and U.S. Capital was imported from Britain to develop
industry. The Bank of Montreal
gave large credits to the rolling
mills. This control has continued.
He also said Gulf Oil, an
American company, buys oil from
Angola through Canada and so
eliminates the difficult international position the U.S. would
face. This also gets the Canadian
taxpayers to subsidize the transaction. He said this is an example
of the role Canadian capital plays
as compradore capital, negotiating
deals for the imperialists.
Bains then dealt with the
question of the state. He said the
state has two roles; first, to
negotiate disputes between sections of the monopoly capitalist
class so that it does not have to
take rists. (When individual
capitalists require cheap services
for themselves, for example, B.C.
Hydro, or Blackball Ferries, the
state expropriates the service.) He
said that the BNA Act had nothing
to do with political independence
for Canada.
The state also carries on the
development of research and
technique for the monopoly
capitalists. Research is carried
out, expreiments are performed
and individual monopoly
capitalists expropriate the results
for their own gain, without taking
any risks. When university
graduates were needed during the
'60', the state spent millions on
education. Now, the need is
diminished, so money goes instead
to "rapid transit", which is needed
by the monopoly capitalists, he
The Canadian state is controlled
by the U.S., said Bains. In 1962,
Kennedy threatened Diefenbaker
and then spent massive amounts of
money   to  ensure  than   Pearson
would be elected to facilitate large
scale investment in Canada.
Bains ended his talk by saying
that there has never been an independent economic system in
Canada, that Canada has always
been mortgaged to foreign imperialists, and that it is in the interests of the monopoly capitalist
class in Canada to keep it that way.
He said if foreign investment to
Canada was stopped, it would be
necessary to defend the country by
force of arms.
Bains said Chile stood as an
example of the impossibility of
changing imperialist relationships
by persuasion. The economy of
Canada is largely bankrupt, large
inflation surround us and Canada
can only survive if it declares
economic and political independence, said Bains.
The symposium on the political
economy of and stage of
revolution, led by Hardial Bains
and Leo Johnson, history professor
at the University of Waterloo,
carried on Friday evening and all
day Saturday. The major questions
raised were the nature of
capitalism in Canada, the importance of control over the
production of the means of
production, the basis of capital
accumulation in Canada and how
"Canada can advance.
This discussion marks the
beginning of serious investigation
about the nature of the political
economy of Canada, and as
Johnson pointed out, forms the
basis of political strategy for
revolutionary change in Canada.
Bains pointed out his party's
position was extremely clear on
this position and saw the necessity
for developing the analysis of the
Canadian political economy to
deepen our understanding of the
nature of capitalism in Canada and
how to change it. He reiterated that
Canada needs both an anti-
imperialist revolution and a
proletarian revolution to advance.
This article is an analysis of
political discussion of the Canadian
economy and the stage of
revolution in Canada at VBC last
weekend. The development of
discussion around the nature of the
Canadian political economy can
only help students understand their
role in society. Johnson was
adequately covered last week. This
week Ubyssey staffer Sharon
Stevenson, a supporter of the CPC
[M-L], looks at Bains' address.

Hope quips, flops eternal
When Bob Hope loped onstage Wednesday night and did a soft shoe to his theme
song while stage hands were fumbling at the
microphone, the two-thirds capacity
Coliseum hummed with delight. He
apologized to the audience for being a half-
hour late.
"They said they'd phone me at the hotel
when it was time for me to go on," he said.
"I was going over my material in my room
and waiting for the call, but nothing. And in
the hotel lobby I saw this lovely creature
with lovely legs and a kilt. It was your Attorney-General, Alex Macdonald."
Sensing audience response was
somewhat slow, Hope launched immediately into his opening musical number,
Applause, a very showbizzy tune he
nevertheless managed to carry.
The audience, alienated by the delay and
not particularly impressed by  Hope's
Calmly glancing around, he was introduced
to CKNW disk jockey Jack Cullen, who
greeted him like an old drinking buddy.
"Hello, Jack," Hope said uncertainly. "I
haven't seen you for a long time." They
shook hands.
When Hope sat down, the usual questions
ensued. He told them of his plans for
"This is the first Christmas in 25 years
that I'm going to be home, and I'm going to
have the Air Force, The Marines, and the
Navy bring down a show and entertain me."
The newsmen guffawed appreciatively. His
health, he said, is good, and he no longer had
any recurring eye trouble.
"I can only play one game of golf a day —
that's my only problem."
"Bob, tell us about Road to Fresno,"
Cullen interjected. "Is it on, off, or gone?"
Both laughed at the "show biz" banter.
Hope . .. gagmanus rex
backup acts, was slow to warm up to him.
Throughout the first half of the program,
presumably meant to warm up the crowd
for Hope, the folkish Serendipity Singers
and vocalist Karen Stanton did little if
anything to establish a rapport.
It was the peak of a rather disappointing
day, starting Wednesday afternoon when
Hope failed to appear on time for a press
conference in the Hotel Vancouver because
his flight from Seattle was cancelled.
Public relations persons frantically
called down to the hotel lobby and set large
piles of photos and blurbs on the coffee
tables while nearly all the newsmen ignored
the Serendipity Singers, carted in to hold
their attention until Hope arrived on his
chartered jet. Several young boys dressed
up as beefeaters waited with trumpets
outside the hotel entrance to play Thanks
For The Memories when he arrived.
Nearly an hour late, Hope met the press
in a 15-minute question-and-answer session
"That was a real good show we did,
wasn't it?" Hope said. "For Tony Romano,
worked out fine."
As well as expecting his fourth grandchild, Hope told newsmen he is not considering retiring. "I don't know that I'd do,
except turn golf pro, and the girls probably
wouldn't let me join the tour," he joked.
"Hope said he also was going to play Las
Vegas, was going to make a movie about
Walter Winchell and was not worried about
the stock market, although "three of my
stocks went off the financial page and onto
the help-wanted section".
"Don't you sometimes want to bite the
microphones?" a female member of the
Serendipity Singers said to Hope. "Might be
a good idea if they were all-day suckers,"
Hope replied, laughing.
He was asked what he thought about
Watergate. "If you come to the show tonight
I'm going to tell you an awful lot about
Watergate," he said.
A reporter then told Hope president
Nixon had just lost another tape.
"Which one?" he joked. "I hope it's not
one of mine, because I was with him four or
five months ago and I asked him a favor,
and I gave him a golf club he admired, and it
had his name on it — Richard the Second.
I'd always said that if he'd won
Massachusetts, it wouldn't have been an
inauguration, it would have been a
coronation. I gave him this thing, and I
asked him a favor, and I hope that tape
doesn't come out. I may be investigated."
Hope was asked if he thought Nixon's
popularity would increase. "I sure do, I
think this pattern where he goes around
talking to people, what he did in Memphis
yesterday and what he did with all the
editors is something..
"I think this man is an exceptional man,"
he said. "I think he's done a tremendous job
with the Middle East, and he's done a
tremendous job, I'll always love him for
bringing the kids home from Vietnam, and
he's faced a lot of criticism, and I love his
foreign policy — what he did with Russia
and China — and I think a lot of people think
about that.
"I've been around politics in our country
for the past 40 years. I know all this cam-
painging stuff they've really got to get down
and work on. We've got to learn to govern
that thing, because that's been going on for
Cullen interjected again to talk about
showbiz. "Shirley Ross, please tell us,
where's the girl today?" Cullen gushed.
Hope replied he did not know where she was.
Hope was then asked if he had met with
Spiro Agnew recently.
"No, but I talked to him after his last
speech," Hope replied. "And I'd hoped to
see him this past week.
Don't take the plane I did, because it ran
out of gas," Hope said when asked
for advice on the energy crisis. "No, I think
it'll work out in a good way. I don't predict
any deep problem. We may have to cut down
on our Sunday driving, but that's not going
to hurt me. What it's going to do to Crosby
and the population explosion; that's what
I'm worried about."
More queries arose over Hope's close ties
with the White House. "I have been connected with the White House since
Roosevelt. Roosevelt was a good friend of
mine, Truman was a very dear friend of
mine, Lyndon Johnson was a friend of mine,
Eisenhower was a great griend of mine, and
Mr. Nixon's a good friend of mine.
"In my business, I've been invited to do
dinners, all the time with these leaders,
because of my category, so I'm invited by
these fellows and if you were in my house
and saw my rogues' gallery, and saw my
lists of pictures, you wouldn't put me with
one administration. There's been scandals
in all the administrations."
Hope told the newsmen he was building a
museum for all his original works in Bur-
bank and would be doing some fishing in
B.C. waters.
One would-be ace decided to elaborate on
the Watergate theme, asking Hope whether
he thought it was Henry Kissinger, not
Nixon, who was the architect of U.S. foreign
"I'm not going to argue about that, but I
know I run my show, I edit my show, and I
edit it, and I'm the executive producer of my
show. I'm not going to take anything away
from Kissinger, because he's done a marvellous job, but anybody knows that when
he's delivering part of his philosophy,
Kissinger's not going to act against the
president's wishes."
In turn, wouldn't that make president
Nixon totally responsible for Watergate, a
newsman asked him.
"What's that got to do with Kissinger?"
Hope asked.
"Well, if the boss is making the
decisions ..."
Hope was clearly snared. "Well, when
you're running a big country, and what
happens underneath, there's a ... I can sit
and talk to you for half an hour about that,
about running a country. Because let me tell
you something. In 1968 the Democratic
Convention ruined Hubert Humphrey's
chances of being president. It was a
shambles, and Mr. Humphrey might have
been president. This is what they were
trying to guard against in the Watergate. We
don't know who sent those Mack Sennett
burglars there.
"When you're running a country as large
as this with the responsibilities, you don't
know, I don't know how far down it goes or
how it happened."
He was asked if he thought Nixon should
beheld responsible. "He is responsible, and
he's taking the rap for it," Hope said, obviously hit close to home.
"You wouldn't like to see him resign,
"I should say not," he shot back. "I'd like
to see another man who could handle the
job. Who do you think could handle the job?"
He was also asked what he thought about
Gerald Ford. "I love Gerald Ford.
Everybody in Washington likes Ford."
He was asked about Ford as a possible
candidate for the presidency. "Well, you
know, you speak about a man and his
record. Dick Nixon has a great record, and
him getting hooked up in this scandalous
thing is a shame."
After having a picture taken of himself
with Jack Cullen — his hand on Cullen's
shoulder — Hope and the Serendipity
Singers left the hotel to rehearse.
Having succeeded in getting the audience
to pay attention to the stage, Hope immediately began his monologue. Moving
rapidly from the Coliseum — "I'd like to tell
you how pleased I am to be appearing in this
lovely garage" — to Vancouver — "they
met me at the airport and gave me a key to
the bus station washroom and a dime" — to
the gas shortage — "the Arabs want to keep
their oil because their camels are beginning
to squeak" — to flying — "I had an awful
argument with a stewardess; I wanted to fly
United, but she had other ideas" — to, yes,
Watergate — "this Christmas I'm entertaining the Watergate wounded" — to his
buddy Bing and his orange groves — "at
Crosby's age, squeezing oranges is an
emotional experience", he almost made
weak, rather stilted material come alive.
His delivery and timing were flawless.
But Hope is a dinosaur in the entertainment
world. How do we know? If attendance is
any indication; less than two-thirds of the
Coliseum was filled, and at least 800 of those
seats were given away free. The majority of
those attending were over 40. There were
some children — mostly the offspring of the
40-year-olds — a few adolescents, even
fewer 20-year-olds, and hardly any 30-year-
olds. Which means we can probably date .
Hope's obsolescence back to the early
sixties or even the fifties.
Why is Bob Hope a dinosaur? Perhaps
because he learned to tell jokes in
Vaudeville, a medium notorious for having
an aggressive audience with a tiny attention
Hope's gags held their attention, and
were part of a loose but coherent structure
called the monologue. Hope was funny on
radio because, understandably, the
audience only paid attention to the audio.
Hope was funny in films because he was
scripted and not spontaneous. Hope was
funny on early live television because the
television camera was more oriented to the
static use of set and actors. Hope is no
longer funny on television because
monologues confine much imaginative use
of the video camera.
But Hope is no longer funny in front of an
audience because the gag as a comic tool is
"They're laughing at all the modern ,
stuff, naturally," Hope said at the press
conference when asked about contemporary
humor. "The things on the headlines today,
those are the hot things. But they laugh at
the same jokes, so you just bring them up to
And Hope's material certainly is
topical. He has gags on Deep Throat,
Jonathan Livingstone Seagull, and
Watergate. But all Hope's talent, all his skill
in making an audience laugh cannot keep
the monologue up to date. The trend toward
ethnic, narrative, and, yes, more cerebral *
humor has transformed his vibrant one-
liners into fatuous wisecracks.
The definite low point of the evening was
the ten minutes Hope spent ogling semi-
articurate models parading across the stage
in Woodwards' latest fashions.
The definite high point of the evening was
toward the end when he was leading into a
song, and interrupted the number withes,
about a dozen quick gags with machine-gun
pace. It was an old routine, but nobody ever
did it better than Hope.
And at the evening's end, a representative of the Red Cross, which the performance benefitted, got up on stage to
thank him. And Art Phillips got up and
presented him with a free pass to Stanley
Park "for amusing hundreds of thousands of
people of Vancouver with thousands of >
jokes . . . many of them good."
Bob Hope laughed. €

Summer Wishes, Winter Dreams is a quiet, tormented film.
You are eased into the story with a nice, slow feel. While the
camera erratically bounces you about in some of the most
unusual visual editing I have seen. Indeed the movie works in a
contradictory way of jerky fluidity to make a very interesting,
effective picture.
The movie is basically for mothers with guilt feelings about
their kids. For the film completely dispenses with parental
responsibility in relation to how children turn out. It also
propagates the myth about absentee parents. In this case the
father. I mean if you are going.to blame anyone it is the
agressive, dominating partner, in this case mommy, not poor
schmuck daddy in the corner. Yet often the reverse is true. The
parent who is always sucking you into feeling sorry for them is
often the most destructive because the hatred is never so
obvious. However, even though the picture is ultimately for
those parents who want to feel that their children are not really
their fault — it says much more.
Summer Wishes, Winter Dreams is about a hard, bouldered
woman who is utterly unhappy with her whole life. Her
isolation from people. Her bitchiness. The empty relationship
with her mother. The nothingness between herself and her
husband. Her kids — fat, masculine daughter — a soft, gay
son. Indeed all her desperate feelings seem to culminate with
the children. For she sees the reflection of her unhappiness in
them. Choked with guilt about what her affect upon them has
been, her bitch exterior breaks down. Suddenly you see the
volcanic core — the scared, little girl she really is. Frozen out
by another hard core mother and running lonely in a cold
wasteland. She flounders. Her life once so promising!
Beginning in youthful hope and ending in disastrous, unhappy
confusion. A frightened, little girl taken over. Controlled by
a bitch. A bitch that so resembles her own mother. But what
happened? Why? The film never answers but instead keeps
insisting that it's not the parents' fault. We were all born this
way. Yet irregardless of this continuing theme the answer is
contained within the movie. It is the parents.
The woman, Rita Walden, (played superbly by Joanne
Woodward) is just like her mother. A tough butch, self-
centered and unpleasant. Rita's sister is also just like the
mother. The daughter, too, is just like her mother and her
grandmother. And all three women with ball-less men by their
sides. And then the gay son, Rob, who is a prime example of
what happens when mommy is always cutting your balls off
and when daddy just doesn't give a shit. Indeed, a father who is
another homosexual and is always getting his balls cut off too.
But the film persists in its myth of innocent parenthood. Rita
turns to her husband (acted magnificently by Martin Balsam)
"But children are not born blanks for their parents to colour
them in with crayons " He agrees. He's got just as much
to loose as she does. But of course children are not born
blanks! They have a spirit within them that is very much their
own. But what happens when you put them in an atmosphere of
hate and shit? They become fat, gay and unhappy just
like their parents. She asks... "I turned out so
badly . . . What can I do?" The director's answer is quite
literally to get a smaller apartment. Mine is to ask her to stop
shitting on everybody. The present being as good a time as
The script, written by Sterwart Stern, is excellent. There's
not a missing pawn! However the story, on a psychological
level, is inadequately explored. But the movie is visually in-
. triguing. The acting is damn good. Overall the film possesses a
force like that of a slowly moving bulldozer.

There is an interesting activity that Arts One
students are indulging in Tuesday evenings. It
cannot really be called a "course" because there
is no credit given for taking it. The activity that
happens is a massage session.
About five women and an equal number of men
from Arts One go to one of their homes for the
massage sessions. An instructor demonstrates
various techniques of the art of rubbing a body
and then the participants pair off and practice on
one another.
The only materials the students are required to
bring to the sessions are bedsheets. This is
because they use all sorts of oils, balms, and
jellies which stain. Presumably, these lubricants
are supplied by the instructor.
I talked with one of the Arts One students involved in the massage sessions. He said he enjoyed them very much, and initially, the students
felt inhibited. However, now, they all seem at
ease when rubbing each other.

One may wonder what value an activity of this
nature offers. After all, there is not a dire need
for experienced masseuses and masseures in the
Vancouver area. Thus, the massage lessons
could not be regarded as career oriented.
Moreover, most massage parlours have
reputations as being fronts for bawdy houses.
The only possible redeeming value one might
see — if one tries very hard — is that massages

Most people agree that it is hard to get to know

The advertising campaign for Summer Wishes, Winter
Dreams describes screenwriter Stewart Stern as the "author"
of Rachel, Rachel. He may well have been the author of that
title, but the movie was based on a novel by Margaret
Laurence, A Jest of God. This perhaps provides a clue as to
why the earlier film was excellent, while Summer Wishes,
Winter Dreams, is not.
Stern was able to adapt someone else's material very well,
but in this original screenplay, while he has created some
interesting characters, he wasn't able to. create a tightly
controlled plot. Because of both its excesses and its
limitations, fine performances by all the actors concerned
cannot get the film off the ground.
Rita Walden (Joanne Woodward), wife of an opthamologist,
mother of two and a grandmother as well, finds herself locked
into a number of family relationships and hardened personal
attitudes which have become incomprehensible to her. By the
end of the film, at least a few of these attitudes have been
resolved, and there is a suggestion, if not a promise, of some
kind of change for the better.
There is enough plot in this one film to make a dozen more.
Only one central character, true, but in an hour and a half Rita
is exposed in terms of at least five major relationships, and the
effects of a half dozen more are alluded to as well. There is a
case to be made for getting the "one damn thing after another"
aspect of modern life onto the screen, but in this case, it strikes
the viewer as simply too much of everything and not enough of
anything. While all the mannerisms, and even most of the
dialogue, may be plausible,& distressingly small proportion of
them actually ring true because not one of the relationships
has really been developed within the framework of the film. It
has all happened off the screen, and what we see is fait accompli, unexplained except for a few overly-surreal flashbacks.
This is an important fault, for both Henry and Rita Walden
are styled as "junkies, hooked into their pasts" — his war
experiences, her childhood summers spent on her grandparents' farm.
The specific crises mirrored in the film follow the death of
Rita's mother, an elderly but still-chic New York matron
(played to the hilt by Sylvia Sidney). After several funny,
bitter and pathetic family scenes at graveside and at the farm,
Rita is taken by her husband on a trip to Europe. It is a kind
gesture on his part, considering their stagnating marriage,
and she accepts, if only because she is eager to resume communication with her son, who is living in Amsterdam.
While overseas, they visit Bascogne, where Walden had
fought in World War II. Up to this point, Balsam has played
him as a rather bumbling little man, almost strictly two-
dimensional. His sudden and energetic emotional crackup at
the site of his major battle seems an over-reaction; it provokes
laughter rather than the tense silence it deserves. It is too
grand a gesture for the character as he has been revealed, it
becomes too close to comedy for comfort.
There is one truly remarkable scene, in a restaurant on the
evening of their visit to Bascogne. Henry tries to tell Rita that
their son is living with another man. She snaps back, "you said
that would only be a phase!", and Henry replies ' 'And you said
.that I was no authority."
There is dead silence. Henry looks up and asks, "Do you
want to hear this or not?", and suddenly it's Woodward's
moment. Inarticulate, on the verge of hysteria, faced with an
impossible demand; she turns away, and with a wry twist of
her mouth, the hard edge suddenly fades. There is no quick
response, there is nothing to say. She doesn't want to hear, but
she must listen. It is a transcendent but unfortunately unique
moment in a film that could have been much more had it only
attempted considerably less.

The Increased Difficulty of Concentration by Vaclav Hale,
Cape Editions 049, paper $2.40.
Vaclav Havel, perhaps the most well-known Czech
playwright since Karel Capek, was involved in avantgarde
theatre movement in Prague in the early sixties and his works
marked the beginning of a new era during the post-Stalinist
thaw. Havel (b. October 5,1936) became the dramaturg of the
Theatre at the Balustrade in Prague and helped produce
Jarry, Beckett, Ionesco and Kafka. But he made his mark in
the international literary scene with his first play The Garden
Party (1963) Directed by Otomar Krejca and designed by Josef
Svoboda; this funny little play immediately made its impact
felt and declared the arrival of a new talent.
Havel's second play, The Memorandum (1965), not only
enhanced his reputation but established him as a major
playwright of recent times. Now comes his third play, The
Increased Difficulty of Concentration, a tour de force, a
technical masterpiece, a delightful little piece full of inventiveness with an exhilarating sense of humour. His first two
plays were political, to say the least. With their deadly probing
of the bureaucratic power structure of a society ridden with
political slogans and readymade responses, they ridiculed
and devastated the system in savage fashion.
But his new play is little different from the other two. Instead
of being obviously political, it developed and elaborated the
theme of dehumanization of man in a mechanized society. A
social scientist, Dr. Eduard Huml, torn between the demands
of a wife, a mistress and a secretary finds it increasingly
difficult to keep himself together and concentrate on his work.
But to complicate his life further, there comes a little machine
calculator which has chosen him as a "a random sample".
Instead of a linear development of its 'plot', the play
proceeds towards its highly logical conclusion through a series
of situations juxtaposed against each other out of their own
time and sequence. In this play a machine is always referred
to by the personal pronoun 'he', whereas human responses and
reactions are always predictable and mechanized. In this play
a machine asks for rest; 'he' is moody and childlike; but
human characters in a fantastic sequence of slapstick comedy
(reminds one of the Hollywood of the twenties) are reduced
into clockwork toys with their frantic movements and messed-
up speech.
"Suddenly, all the characters appear on the stage. All, including Kriebl and Miss Balcar, begin variously to criss-cross
from one door to another, while repeating together with Puzuk
(the machine calculator) over and over their questions and
demands, addressed to Huml. Their movements and speech
became faster and faster, their voices louder, so that the end
impression of this scene is an ever-increasing acoustic and
visual chaos. Huml keeps desperately rushing among them, as
though seeking some sort of haven."
This elaborate stage direction in a way is the culmination of
Havel's method of employing a sort of 'meta-language' to
express his ideas. His interest in Wittgenstein and concrete
poetry obviously had something to do with it. Repetition of
some absurd detail, of a dialogue, again and again, indicates
the machine-like characteristics of his people. With all his
clowning and caricature Havel never lets us forget his serious
intentions. This uproarious little play, after all, intended to
show us that we are left with nothing to keep us together in this
technological society — not even our romantic excesses or the
simple pleasures of sex.

This film of Woody's own Broadway mattress play proves
a treat for all of Woody's fans and should punch out some quite
amusing unobjectionable comedy for everyone else. Herb
Ross's screen direction brings out the best lighthearted larceny in Allen as actor (cum clown) in the spoof role he
originally wrote for himself as a play.
With Allen's almost Marxian (Groucho, Harpo, & Chico ho
ho) mania the catalyst, and the shades of the immortal Bogie
in the background, and a brisk risque (bouncy-bouncy) performance from everybody else, the romper just manages to
skate over the shakiest situations on a fairly safe to cracking
icy layer of wit. To the classic tunes of "As Time Goes By"
Woody's PLAY IT AGAIN, SAM does just that for laffs at SUB
CINE this weekend, check the add for showtimes.

Amazing collection in gallery
An amazing collection of well-knowns
in the art world (sub species print-
making) is available to be seen (free of
charge) at UBC fine arts gallery. Made
feasible by grants from the Merrill
Foundation, the UBC Alumni Fund,
Canadian Forest Products (its all their
paper), the Bau Xi and Equinox
Galleries, Marlborough Godard,
Longstaffe and Toni Onley, the show will
will be on from Nov. 20 to Dec. 29.
According to the catalogue, the show
aims at obtaining "a series of works
which, while themselves of the highest
quality, illustrate the variety of printing
techniques, scale and range which
prevail today . . ." in Canada, Europe
and the U.S.A. Put together by Ron
Longstaffe, it is the beginning of what is
hoped will lead to be a comprehensive
collection available to the general public
and students of UBC.
The works on display are all relatively
contemporary, ranging from Harold
Town's beautiful monotype 'The fort that
waves at Breadwagons' 1956, to David
Bolduc's screenprint . 'Untitled' 1973.
Although a lot of the work is Canadian;
Town, Bolduc, the inevitable 'O Canada'
trip of Joyce Wieland, Snow, and Toni
Onley, Longstaffe has also selected
relevant American and European artists.
By no means is it a show of boring
Of course Andy Warhol is represented,
'Mao Tse Tung', as well as Rauschenberg
in typical Rauschenberg style 'Sub-
Total'; similarly Hamilton, 'Kent State',
Christo, .'Wrapped Mountain' and
Oldenburg, 'Profile Airflow'. All these
works look singularly dated looking,
strongly reminiscent of-the sixties with
X's a la 'My Marilyn' series and
newspapery €iffects. Perhaps the consistent over-exposure of the New York
style is responsible for the boredom it
generates now.
More interesting are some of the less
well publicized works from European
printmakers. Although Longstaffe has
managed to collect a Miro, 'Harlequin',
and a Picasso,  'Gravure Series  #215',
much more impressive is the work of
Paul Wunderlich and Czech artist An-
derle. Both works are recognizably un-
North American, a nice change.
Significantly, of the 51 prints on show,
Roy Lichentstein's 'Hopeless' at fine arts
only two prints are the work of women.
Whether   this   is   a    reflection   of
Longstaffe's tastes or the art world in
general is debatable.
Probably much more significant is the
fact that the work of the non New York
artists though less blatant, is much more
rememberable. The show is worth

Uneven, remarkably eclectic
Chard, a young 26 year old
artist from St. Boniface, Manitoba, who
describes himself as a painter, composer, poet and experimental
theatricalist is currently exhibiting some
of his work of the last two years in the
SUB art gallery.
The exhibition is uneven, but
remarkably versatile and eclectic. The
most successful works are the drawings,
each having its own timbre and tone
ranging from deep rich lines to thin
piercing scratches.
The drawings are deceptively simple.
For example "Balloon Ride" depicts a
giant face floating through the air. A
closer look shows a miniature basket at
the base of the neck and a miniscule man
and top hat whirling into white space.
Chard says that whenever one of his
drawings are sold he feels a sense of loss,
as if someone has taken a piece away
from him."All the drawings and paintings
are for sale.
The exhibition is versatile in the sense
of appearing to be the work of several
artists. This only reflects what Chard
calls "being a creative person." The
question of influences came up. Some of
the drawings are similar to the works of
iSaul Steinberg, the New Yorker cartoonist. Others remind one of Joan Miro.
Chard said: "Comparisons are really
dangerous. One of the dangers of being
an artist is stumbling across a territory
that another has already explored. My
stuff isn't like anybody's."
It is the paintings that make the
exhibition fall down. Most of the work are
early attempts at exploring the forms
and the final result is one of trying and
not succeeding. This is most apparent in
"Cats at Prayer". In this painting the
mode of expression was simply not able
to carry the emotion. The most
promising painting was the touching and
melancholy "Study of Yvette." The
painting, though lacking in the sharpest
technical prowess, is deeply felt from
Chard prefers to call the "Japanese-
style" raked sand, leaves and rocks
which is on the floor a "Universal style".
"It is a more appropriate term since
the Japanese have fucked up their environment. They have lost their concept
of unity with Nature. They've lost the
right to call this a 'Japanese-style'."
The air is thick with incense. Chard
says he normally prefers fresh air and
always has a window open. This is not
possible in SUB. So Chard lights incense.
"I'd rather smell incense than stale,
antiseptic air," he said.
Chard's "Bursting Vision's Heart"
Chard has been a harmonica player for
the Dirty Tank Town Dumb Blues Band
in Vancouver, has produced Gestalt
Environmentalist theatre performances
and he will publish a book of poems and
drawings next month through Intermedia.
In connection with his exhibition, next
week Chard is bringing in mimes, singers
and poets. Chard will present a different
performance each "noon hour.
Chard calls his exhibition Phases. But
he intends to change the title to Phasis.
"That's an invented multi-layered,
multi-meaning word, but I didn't think of
it until too late."
—marise savaria photo
As theatricalist Chard is opposed to the
idea of a theatre of tension. Too much
speed is destroying this century. Hurry is
killing us, he said. He prefers a completely spontaneous theatre in which the
actors and the audience have a back and
forth interplay.
"This way I can extend the Gestalt
Unity Interplay into society."
Chard was referring to a unity with the
environment in a psychological sense.
Ecology also means psychology, he said.
He as an artist has to try to mirror the
environment in the way it's good and the
way it is bad.

This report will deal episodically with a
matrix of props: three bottles of stout in a
green plastic bag capable of swinging from
the handle bars of a bicycle, a case of beer
precariously balanced between two tables at
the Jardin de Cerveza, the coastal range of
mountains with corresponding seasonal
weather manifestations, a Greyhound bus, a
flat-bed tractor-trailer empty but for a
mount of log chains the size of a hope chest,
a Volkswagen van, several sets of brake
lights which will be needed to give
technological airing and thinning to the
separate fear displays inside the several
vehicles should there be an accident in the
road, a magazine entitled Spit in the Ocean,
other props as signaled for by the Planner.
A matrix of pawns: a person on whom can

tapes, note books and a Nikon camera and

into the back of a moving vehicle), a crazed
speed freak bus driver, a false prophet, two

United States of America where Madison
Avenue mind-fuck become stratosphere was
able to pull Nixon over the eyes of the "little
guy". Destination: Houston, Texas, the
greatest event in the history of mankind.
Millenium '73. Purpose: Dig what goes
Heavy-duty adolescent pagan at considerable expense and hassle to himself and
others, rented out a hall and promised to lay
down heavy duty poop: a plan for world
peace hyped by the craziest PR ever to be
invented since that ad man was able to sell
the king of losers back onto the huddled,
cannon-fodder vulgas, a nation of lose-ees,
by a finesse so cool we stiU don't know what
it was.
A matrix of postulates: I declare the war
named double-double three to be already
going on. Only it is going on in slow motion,
it snuck up on us. People are being killed
and incarcerated there ipso facto there is a
war in that place. The scholar is in prison for
violating moral taboo. Youth is in prison for
not wanting to do murder in the name of the
culture of commerce. In daddy's war for
resource aggrandizement. The aged are out
of sight in old folk's homes or beer halls.
Wombs of mothers are imprisoned in
laboratory beakers.
The slow-motion war grew out of the
horrors of the depression, which matured a
generation at economic and legislative
prominence now. This generation spent
their lives in the neurotic search for individual security, protection and comfort.
They were scared out of believing these
things are the measure, the automatic
givens for every person in any healthy
In this neurotic and hopeless search they
have invested one third of their lives in
uncreative work, one third in getting up for
or coming down from that work. The other
third was spent sleeping.
It is possible to tell when work is waste by
asking one question: do you discover
yourself moment by moment in each thing
you make or do?
These slaves to the culture of commerce
saved their depressed land — which was
hardly dried from the blood of the murdered
natives that they stole it from — by the blood
money of the Second World War.
To sell out their spirit, a profoundly
irreligious act, and waste their lives and
waste the earth they had to reduce their
religious leaders to bingo rip-off artists who
withhold unified and active opposition to
war, thus participate in murder for resource
imperialism — a saintly act only where the
dollor is god. The insecure culture of
commerce had to reduce its priests to intervening between man and god for their
own maintenance and make them hold their
mystical influence in abeyance while the
holocaust is cranked up.
Incarcerating people who refuse to kill for
commerce can be a saintly act only when
the structure of commerce is deified. Imprisoning the scholar for experimenting
with himself betrays that deified social
structure as one that cannot stand up substance to substance with creativity.
Based on a structure founded upon insecurity, the fathers experimented with the
tool and pandered to the self. They did their
experiments with clear-cutting bulldozers,
rockets, bombs, electric fondue pots,
monosodium glutimate and propulsion
systems and brought the earth to crisis by
their experimentation such that there might
not be enough fuel left to get me down to
Houston without rationing — there is no
shortage of fuel to deliver the holocaust
throughout the world in nothing flat.
These same men and women evolved laws
in imprison Timothy Leary who would
experiment with himself and leave the land
These same men and women betray and
demonstrate the degree to which they have
rejected their own religion by bringing or
allowing to be brought an unbaptized pagan
slogan shouter with no more to proclaim
than a politician: "Trust me, join me, gain
peace in secret, then be cool."
Furthermore, the youth who brought him
confused rebellion with rejection and
rejected the whole mysticism of antiquity
instead of rediscovering what the fathering
generations had already cast aside to bring
us to this state of economic and moral crisis.
What could be more impotent than a child
guru speaking faith in a land where children
are made into rebels because their spontaneity is frustrated and tabooed; where
those who would teach and affirm spontaneity are either in prison or kept out of the
education structure because creatively dead
professors have to have job security to pay
their insurance premiums and feed their
families in the manner to which they have
become accustomed. Tenured welfare at 20
grand a year and no snooping social worker
to hassle them, instead of welfare at sub-
sistance and degradation like the cannon-
fodder vulgas. What could be more
ludicrous than a fat cat heathen in a Rolls
Royce brought into a redneck town to touch
eyeballs and blast divine light across
synapses of ex-acid freaks, ex-political
idealists and all sorts of far out seekers and
sneakers in a land where "spend blood for
security" is social foundation and incarceration the means by which creativity
and rebellion nullify one another out of
The security conscious have alienated
both posterity and tradition. They have
driven themselves like a wedge between the
wisdom of grandparents — which resounds
now muted and hollow in halls where death
is an imminence in every institutional
corner, and the grandchildren's spontaneity
— the only thing that gramps can use to
repel that imminence. Gramps has found
out perhaps too late that there is no security
in loneliness no matter what he does or has
done now death is close. He would be content
to rest his gaze on happy children and not
bother with this insurance premium
I went to where age is a grizzly stranger in
seclusion and spontaneity a social or legal
disgrace; where the insecure wash and
spray every conceivable orifice or fold of
skin to protect each other from the odor of
lymphatic emission of plastic and
chemicals. No one said don't put poison in if
you don't want smelly poison coming back
out. I went down into the holocaust where
the insecure hide from physical or psychic
pain in the structure of the pharmaceutical
wing of the AMA, the legitimate and the
biggest dope dealer in the land. Nobody ever
said: if we didn't have so goddamned many
laws there wouldn't be so goddamned many
criminals; nobody ever asked: how come
I'm such an overfed, alcoholic, sexually
uptight frustrate who can't even laugh
anymore on account of my hernia, who can't
even think about tomorrow without thinking
of cancer, coronary or hysterectomy; where
more wealth is spent on pets and police than
the total economies of half the nations on the
It's a good time to have a millenium with
that comet bearing down on our tired earth.
We can use a new time reference. From now
on everything can be before or after the time
when the Astrodome scoreboard lights up
and proclaims: "From now on everybody
gets to groove."
Chapter 2:
Two omens
Night: I'm riding my bicycle back from
the pub. I have a green garbage bag with
three bottles of stout swinging from my
handlebars. I have imbibed a like quantity. I
come to the intersection. I'm not going to
stop even though I've got a stop sign because
the car coming from the other way will
approach his stop sign after me and he will
have to stop. By that time I'll be gone. But
.instead of stopping he turned in front of me
and I knew we were going to hit so I
levitated myself up onto the handle bars,
transferring my weight onto the hood of his
car, did a summersault across his hood — I
remember that the hood was warm. I
remember the driver's face looked weird. It
was lit by his speedometer from below. His
cheek bones threw shadows up across eyes
so they looked like places where eyes had
perhaps once been but now only skull holes
on a poison driving, say, a neon medicine
chest. Then I landed sitting crosslegged
among the broken glass and stout foam. I
was dazed so I didn't say anything when the
guy got out and stuffed some bills into my
pocket. I had counted on him to stop. He
didn't. He wouldn't have!
The second omen was more complicated. I
was relating the story of the bike accident to
my companions at the jardin de cerveza and
plotting the trip to Houston to cover the
Maharaj ji. It must have been like this:
Jock, perking up his ears over my
carelessness, thought he'd test my alertness. He was concerned about me going into
the states on freeways for the 2,500-mile
drive to Houston if I can't even operate a
bicylce. So he bought a case of beer and
balanced it between two tables next to me.
His theory must have been: if I am able to
sit next to it and not break it then the bike
accident must have been a fluke. I'd be OK
on the road after all.
Then there was a need to move the table to
make more room. Ross was standing there
so I told him to slide the table over. He did so
without question. Nobody thought Jock
would have been so diabolical as to do what
he did. The scripture on omens would say
that anyone planning anything in the same
room where a case fell and broke would
have indication enough to scrub the mission
at once.
I tried to disclaim responsibility. I had
neither put the beer where it was nor did I
slide the table. But I did give the order. I

More big names for spring concerts
UBC concerts are gaining
popularity with big-name bands
says Alma Mater Society vice-
president Gordon Blankstein.
Blankstein said in a recent interview the bands who have played
here are pleased with the reception
they have received and this is
making it easier to bring other big
names to UBC.
"All the groups have said they're
pleased with the co-operation
they've got. John Mayall said a lot
of good things for us by talking to
other groups. After the performance he said it was the best
concert he ever had in Canada."
Blankstein said the concerts had
been successful because there was
an intimate feeling with audiences
in the gymnasium which would be
practically impossible in the
coliseum with 20,000 people.
"There's a pleasant atmosphere
when you know a lot of other
students there, it creates great
spontaneity and the bands really
like it."
Blankstein said there would be
no further concerts this term but
he is planning to bring in four big-
name acts next term. He said he
could not reveal who may be
coming because promoters
downtown might also ask for a
show and this would drive costs up
at UBC.
Plans to bring Crosby, Stills and
Nash on campus Dec. 14 have
fallen through because their agent
asked too much and would not
bring his price down, he said.
Blankstein said special events
committee had made money on
Mayall, Cheech and Chong and the
Beach Boys, but little total profit
was made because of the loss on
the Murray McLauchlan show.
Blankstein said he would like to
have student feedback on what
bands to book.
"All the calls I've received so far
are from people pissed off because
the Beach Boys were sold out and
they hardly knew they were
coming," he said. "I- can understand it because students are
getting charged an average of two
dollars less than downtown but
they should remember we're not
getting any money for doing this."
Blankstein said the only
organization making money is food
services which has made about
$400 at every concert from the food
they sell; and physical plant which
is paid for setting up the gym and
cleaning up the mess after the
The Sept. 28 McLaughlan event
lost $1,500, the only one to do so. All
other events have been financed by
downtown promoters who
guaranteed the AMS a cut and
would have absorbed any loss.
But the McLauchlan concert was
backed by the AMS who absorbed
the loss.
Over 3,500 attended the Mayall
concert which cleared about $550.
The Nov. 4 Beach Boys and Oct. 20
Cheech and Chong concerts were
both rapid sellouts (over 4,500
people) and both cleared approximately $800.
Morgentaler abortion fight continues
Although abortionist Dr. Henry
Morgentaler was recently aquitted
on charges of performing illegal
abortions, further support is
needed to fight the crown's appeal
to a higher court.
This was the opinion of Coreen
Douglas, co-chairperson of the
UBC abortion action committee in
an interview with The Ubyssey
She said if the acquittal "stands
up in the Quebec court of appeals it
is a historic precedent" which
might break down Canada's
abortion laws.
Dr. Morgentaler, a Montreal
doctor who has admitted performing more than 1,000 illegal
abortions in recent years, was
aquitted Nov. 12, however the
crown indicated they would appeal
the case to the Quebec Supreme
Douglas said if the crown wins
that appeal the abortion reform
movement "might be permanently
To publicize this possibility the
abortion committee is sponsoring a
speech by Anna Cushman, coordinator of the Toronto committee
to defend Dr. Morgenthaler,
Monday noon in the SUB ballroom.
The eight-member committee
received $100 and a quarter-page
ad in The Ubyssey from AMS
council Wednesday night to
publicize a renewed campaign to
free Dr. Morgentaler.
Morgentaler was aquitted on a
seldom used section of the
Criminal Code of Canada which
says a doctor can legally perform
an operation providing it is in the
best interest of the patient and it is
done in a safe, responsible manner.
The crown contended admission,
of this section in a defense of an
abortion charge was legally

Canada-wide coin shortage
hits student cafeteria
UBC stores and food outlets are
feeling the effects of a Canada-
wide coin shortage caused by an
increase in the price of silver.
A spokesman for the SUB
cafeteria said Thursday the Bank
of Montreal in SUB cannot always
provide enough change making an
extra trip to a bank in the administration   building   necessary.
Gerry Freeman, manager of the
SUB bank, admitted a shortage
exists but said they are keeping up
with student needs. "It's getting
better but I'm not sure if the improvement is temporary or permanent," he said. During the
recent CN-CP rail strike regular
coin shipments from the East were
interrupted causing a shortage in
Western Canada, Freeman said.
According to government officials a Canadian quarter is worth
about 27 cents and a pre-1967
quarter about 42 cents causing
speculators and "fast-buck" artists to hoard coins and melt them
down for resale. No reason has
been given for increases in silver
Other entrepreneurs have been
selling large numbers of coins to
the United States prompting the
federal government to pass an
order-in-council earlier this year
forbidding such exports without a
SUB cafeteria staff have asked
students to have correct change
during the shortage. Other stores
in SUB and the bowling alley also
reported difficulty in obtaining
coins when interviewed Thursday.
They said the situation is as bad as
A news report in an Eastern
daily newspaper says the Royal
Canadian Mint cannot keep up with
the demand for new coins even
though it operates 24 hours a day,

Judo relieves academic
Opening the door to the judo
practice room in the basement of
War Memorial gym, the first
impression is of sound and
' There is the soft shuffle of many
pairs of bare feet across the mats,
punctuated by loud bangs and what
sound like war cries. The white-
clad figures bob and surge in
curious rhythms like dancers, each
gripping his partner's uniform.
There's a lot of sweat and heavy
breathing, for this is randori, the
period set aside for free fighting.
Norm Franz is a short, sturdily
built man of 48 with a ready smile
and a friendly self-effacing
manner. He is also a professor in
the forestry department.
It was a mistake that got him
into judo. The graduate student
who introduced him to the sport
was thinking of it for Franz's 15-
year-old son. He took both over to
the gym for a demonstration.
Impressed, they signed up. They
progressed together for about two
years before the son dropped out.
Franz continued and now wears a
brown belt.
"As a 15-year-old, it was difficult
for my son to admit he was
powerless in someone else's
hands," Franz said. "I could accept this better. When a man
throws me and I go flying through
the air, I get a kind of masochistic
satisfaction out of the fact that he's
been able to execute such a good
Sportsmanship at a high level
was one of the things which attracted Franz to judo. As he sees it,
there is less emphasis on winning
than on rapport: the training
together, learning techniques and
"I liked the people that were
there," he says. "Judo attracts a
hell of a nice type of person — a
good balance of intellectual
capacity and physical activity.
Also, judo principles appealed to
me because they dealt with
physics, mechanics and anatomy."
"A lot of times you think you
don't have enough energy for
something like this — you're too
tired. But much of that, in the
academic world, is just the result
of nervous tension. If you release
those tensions, your fatigue will
actually be reduced. I've found
many times I've almost dragged
myself over to the gym, forced
myself to work out, and I'd leave
two hours later feeling great.
"It's not only your physical
reactions but your mental acuity
that sharpens. It makes you more
aware, more keen."

Strong finish for
UBC wrestlers
Teras Hryb led Thunderbird wrestlers to a strong finish in the UBC
Invitational Tournament by winning the 177 pound title.
The match saw 103 competitors from nine universities and 15 clubs
gather at UBC to vie for 11 weight division titles. The University of
Alberta, University of Washington, Western Washington State, Central
Washington State, Puget Sound, Pacific Lutheran, Puget Sound, SFU,
and UBC sent wrestlers.
Aside from Hryb, two other Canadians, 106 pound Larry Jung of
New Westminster and 118 pound Bob Bertie of Quebec took firsts.
Thunderbird heavyweight, 260 pound Kyle Raymond took a second
with teammates John Cipolato, 126 pound, and Lucio Petrin, 142 pound,
grabbing thirds.
For the most part the Birds showed potential and quality. They
were especially strong, as expected, in the heavier weight classes.
Craig Delahunt and Phillippe Markon pulled off some good victories and
finished well up in the standing of their respective divisions.
"Competition was at a closer level than in previous years. The
Canadian kids did real well," observed Bird coach Bob Laycoe. He said
he was particularly pleased with the showing some of his boys put out.
Laycoe feels the nine Canadians who reached the finals indicates the
gap between American and Canadian schools is closing.
The Bird's next action is Saturday when they have their annual
varsity grad dual meet at 2 p.m. in the War Memorial gym.
