Array Put up, shut up — Haugen
By MARK LEIREN-YOUNG
The proposed SUB renovations
were defeated in last week's referendum but the $15 building fee will be
with us till SUB freezes over if incoming Alma Mater Society president Marlea Haugen has her way.
"Obviously I'm really disappointed, but I won't have a referendum to drop the building fee.
However, those fees won't be used
in the regular operating portion of
the budget. They'll just accumulate
dust and interest.
"If a building project arises that
we want to use those funds for, we
will. But we won't use them in our
day to day operations budget,"
Haugen said Monday.
Although the majority of voters
favored the proposals there were

Lef them make love, not war
By NANCY CAMPBELL
"The armed forces seem to be
more concerned about people making love with someone of the same
sex than of possibly killing
thousands of people in a war," a
Burnaby MP said Friday. "Well,
that's their priority, I guess."
The armed forces and the RCMP
are the main opponents to including
sexual protection in the Bill of
Rights, Svend Robinson said to 50
people in SUB 205.
Robinson, who represents Burnaby for the NDP, said this is
despite the fact government departments, including the federal justice
department, are willing to push the
changes.
Opponents to the changes say
security is a major problem because
homosexual officials and officers
are more likely to be blackmailed
than heterosexuals, Robinson said.
"But if you can't be dismissed
for your sexual orientation then you
have that security," he said.
As a member of the constitution
committee, Robinson is also
fighting for changes to the Criminal
Code. "My personal position is that
there should be an equal age of con-
sent between 'gays' and
'straights," he said. "The current
move to lowering the age of consent
to 18 from 21 is not going to have
much effect."
Robinson said he would like to
see:
O lowering the age of consent to
16;
O sex with 14 to 16 year olds
legalized if the young person was
held to be more responsible for the
act;
O sexual experimentation allow
ed, if there is an age difference of
three years or less.
He also wants to eliminate the
section in the Criminal Code dealing with gross indecency with
respect to homosexuals and the
bawdy house laws.
"Some of you don't realize your
own home can be a bawdy house
under this law," Robinson said.
"The laws are hopelessly outdated,
and being a found-in in a bawdy
house has a devastating effect on
the individual."
Robinson slammed the "bully-
boy" tactics of the Toronto police,
referring to the recent arrest of 250
found-ins in Toronto baths.
"There's an incredible double
standard here — the former B.C.
chief justice was a found-in (during
last year's Vancouver sex scandals)
and where is his trial?" he said.
Robinson said he has faced a lot
of opposition from his constituents
and other politicians in his fight to
improve the rape laws and increase
protection for homosexuals, including his Conservative opponent
in the last federal election who
"went about door to door saying,
'Don't vote, he's a faggot*."
"Burnaby is not a bastion of
liberalism, but there is an obligation
on myself, as an MP, to speak
out," he said.
"I view thcissue as a very basic
issue of human rights. People have
the right to live their own lifestyle
— we're talking about freedom of
choice," he said.
"The fight goes on at the federal
level to get protection for gays. And
I will continue to fight to get the bill
changed?'
not enough favorable votes cast to
pass the referendum. The results:
1,831 students voted for the courtyard proposals, 1,347 against. The
SUB plaza proposal was a closer
race with 1,651 in favor and 1,515
against.
In order for any referendum to
pass, a total of 10 per cent (about
2,300 students) of the day population at UBC must be in favor of the
proposal, and a majority of the
votes cast must also be favorable.
"I don't think they (the proposed
SUB renovations) are going to roll
over and die. We'll sit down and examine what happened and if it was
just a lack of informing people then
maybe we'll try again, but if the
people were just saying 'bugger off
then the proposals would be dropped.
"But I think it was more a matter
of a lack of interest," Haugen said.
Haugen said she didn't know why
the referendum was defeated but
that she imagines that people were
concerned with what the space was
going to be used for and that the
AMS needed a lot more "personal
contact publicity."
"The building funds will be used
foir some large project?' Haugen
said. "The students will have to tell
us how the funds will be used (in
building referendums)."
"I think that's a little bit appalling," said arts faculty representative Brian Roach of Haugen's attitude towards the building fees.
"I think that students have
shown their disinterest in SUB
building plans and that the SUB
building fee should be cancelled until such time as the AMS comes up
with a viable building plan to support.
"The lack of interest on the part
of students in the referendum demonstrates how far student council is
separated from reality," Roach
said.
Roach said that he joiner.' in the
open apathy of not voting because
he felt that that was making more
of a point than anything else could.
AMS president Bruce Armstrong
was also disappointed with the results of the referendum.
"Personally, I think that it didn't
achieve (the necessary number of
favorable votes) because of the low
key campaign. Unfortunately because I wasn't there last week and
the majority of the executive staff

asks new v-p
An appeal court has decided to
ignore possession of housebreaking instruments charges laid
against an engineering student, bringing complaints from students
that there are no controls on
engineering pranks.
A B.C. appeal court judge said
Thursday a prank committed two
years ago by Peter Mitchell, Alma
Mater Society vice president elect,
should have been handled as an internal disciplinary matter at UBC.
The court decided by a three to
two vote to order a new trial against
Mitchell under the condition that
the crown prosecutor drop the
charges. This means the case will
never reappear in court.
Mitchell was arrested two years
ago in Buchanan building. He had
entered the building at 2 a.m. in
order to steal the arts faculty letterhead. The letterhead was to be
used to inform arts students that
anyone with less than a second class
average at Christmas would be expelled.
The prank was organized by the
engineering undergraduate society
stunts committee.
Mitchell was acquitted in B.C.
court, but the crown prosecutor appealed the decision. When the case
appeared in court Thursday, the
crown was criticized for making a
criminal offence of a student prank.
Arts undergraduate society president Paul Yaskowich said the decision left him concerned over the
Media Services hits milestone
Canada's unique student-owned, cooperatively
governed advertising company passed a major
milestone this week in establishing itself as the major
national advertising network for the student press.
Nineteen student newspapers signed with Canadian
University Press Media Services by Monday, representing a circulation of more than 100,000, three weeks
after the national advertising network offered its first
contract.
Youthstream Canada Ltd., which has sold advertising for student newspapers for 10 years, has yet to sign
a newspaper to its contract.
"Their (Youthstream's) contract went out last Monday. They had a week and no one signed with them
while during the same week CUP Media Services signed student newspapers with a combined circulation of
40,000," said Bill Tieleman, western representative on
the CUP members' board.
Last year, in an agreement with CUP, Youthstream
sold ads for a total circulation of 330,000 nationwide.
CUP, in a decision by its member student newspapers
at a conference Jan. 2, has dissolved its relations with
Youthstream and formed Media Services to handle national advertising sales for its 63 member papers.
The Ubyssey staff has ratified its delegates' decision
at that conference to support the new student-owned
network and is holding an information meeting for
student council today at 5 p.m. All students are invited
to attend.
Unless council votes to accept the Media Services
contract at its meeting Feb. 25, The Ubyssey faces the
possibility of losing $25,000 in national ad revenue
next year. The deadline to sign the national advertising
agreement is March 1.
With a circulation of 108,000, the company has
achieved more than 40 per cent of its goal of 265,000..
complete lack of control over
engineering stunts.
"The university has no control
over them. They are oblivious to
student court, the university, and
even their dean can't control
them," said Yaskowich.
"I would take exception to those
who discount the courts as a possible action if it is required," he added.
Mitchell was also troubled by the
court decision, but for different
reasons. He said he preferred to be
acquitted rather than have the
charges dropped. He said the
charges were dropped, to avoid setting a precedent.
"I don't think there is really that
much more to discuss," said Mitchell. "I had no criminal intent and
I don't believe the court saw it that
way either."
Yaskowich said most stunts are
intended to boost participation and
should be taken light-heartedly. But
he said some pranks can be quite
obnoxious, and cited the kidnapping of a medicine student in the arts
20 race this year and the theft of
AUS t-shirts last year as examples.
He also said the red rag, which
has been attacked for containing
sexist and racist material, is another
example of an obnoxious stunt.
"I think they should have to
work within the confines of the
law," Yaskowich said.
But Mitchell said, "If things get
in the way of students learning,
there is a problem. But sometimes a
distraction can induce people to
work better."
The administration could not be
reached for comment.
Let it be
It all started when George Harrison didn't show up. They needed a
guitarist and we had the one they
wanted. Then came the urgent call
for a cellist, flautist and maracas
player (you should see Steve on a
good night).
At last Paul and Richard decided
they wanted the whole staff for a
warmup jam. They bought off the
UBC administration and secured a
holiday for the entire university so
we could all make it out to Montserrat for a Friday session. See you

was not there so it didn't achieve a
high profile," Armstrong said.
The majority of the AMS executive staff spent the week of the referendum at home with the flu.
"If I had been there, chances are
that more students would have voted. I think if I had gotten 1,000
more students out it would have
passed," Armstrong said.
Armstrong disagreed with Hau
gen's position on the building fees
saying that if there isn't any building going on it should be absorbed
into council's general operating
budget or dropped.
Armstrong, who helped conceive
the proposed SUB renovations, did
not see the referendum as being a
major defeat.
"I'm not concerned if they vote
for it or against it, as long as they
vote  with   an  informed   mind."

'Fat little Dave' attacks fat cats
By STEVE McCLURE
"Fat little Dave Barrett" hit UBC at noon
Monday and continued the tradition of
vaudeviDian politics he made famous.
Speaking to a crowd of more than 400 in
SUB auditorium, Barrett slammed Premier
Bill Bennett's Social Credit government for
the way it has handled the controversial northeast coal deal.
Barrett said after the B.C. resources and
investment corporation had invested $675
million in coal developments in southeastern
B.C. it was "stupid" to use public money to
subsidize coal developments in the northeast.
"We're going to spend over a billion
dollars of taxpayers' money to subsidize a
coal development that will be in direct competition with the southeast," Barrett said.
"It's so stupid, foolish and incredible that
even civil servants took note," he said.
"You're going to be giving welfare to two
major companies to the tune of over a billion
dollars," he added.
"We've always been a province where they
'rush for spoils? " Barrett said.
"The last major giveaway was the Colum-
No change for
rape victims
bia River. We've had crazy ideas like
monorails down the Rocky Mountain trench
and forestry and mineral giveaways, but
we're coming close to the end of that kind of
giveaway," he said.
Barrett also criticized the Bennett government for the way it has dealt with the buying
and selling of BCRIC shares.
"We were told by the government that the
shares would be worth 10 or 12 bucks and
some people actually went out and invested
their life savings in BCRIC," he said. "They
bought on faith and we've all seen what's
happened."
Barrett accused the Socreds of turning a
blind eye to the question of whether there
was insider trading when Kaiser Resource
shares were bought by BCRIC.
"Along comes Edgar Kaiser who sees this
big pile of money, and says 'I want it, I'll sell
you some coal mines? " was Barrett's way of
describing the controversial deal that saw
Kaiser shares, selling for $32.50 each, sold to
BCRIC for $55 apiece.
"And Kaiser still gets $700,000 a month in
commission, on existing contracts," Barrett
said. "That's enough to buy two houses in
Vancouver — this week."
Barrett said any attempt by Bennett to
disavow responsibility for BCRIC's business
dealings is futile.
"There is no doubt that BUI Bennett is the
parent of that child (BCRIC)" Barrett said.
"And the paternity suit will be looked at in
the next provincial election."
But Barrett spent most of his time raking
the Bennett government over the coals for its
handling of the northeast coal deal.
"It's a foolish return to boomism," he
said, characterizing boomism as the
philosophy that says "as long as we give
resources away things will be booming."
"I'm convinced, and I may be wrong, that
this time they've gone too far. We have a
government that doesn't have a philosophy
but which does know what it's against."
Barrett had little to say on the question of
the constitution. "I have never lost a night's
BARRETT . . . coal deal stink*
sleep over the fact that the BNA Act is in
London."
"Constitution-building is a lot of fun for
lawyers and politicians, but I don't think it's
a priority."
By JULIE WHEELWRIGHT
Proposed amendments to the
Criminal Code dealing with sexual
offences, while creating a new legal
format, may not effect any real
changes for rape victims, a Vancouver lawyer charged Friday.
Joanne Ranson told 40 people in
SUB 125 the proposed changes will
abolish the offence of rape and
create new offences which will be
under part six of the Criminal
Code.
"Currently within the variety of
(sexual) offences there's a great deal
of discrimination," Ranson said.
The current law allows only for
sexual offences between men and
women and the amendments would
make the offences applicable to
both sexes, she said. "I think this is
a good change," she added.
But according to Ranson, "in
proving a case (of rape), the law
isn't really going to change. It's just
a format really." In rape cases,
under the proposed amendments, a
woman could still be questioned
about her past sexual conduct, she
said.
She said the proposed amendments will not change the law. "The
law still seems to have it in mind
that rape is a sexual crime." Law
yers will still be allowed to use the
same kinds of evidence, she added.
A recent decision by the Canadian Supreme Court in a rape case
said even if a woman did not consent to a sexual act, if her attacker
honestly believed she did consent,
then that could be used as a
defence.
In terms of the proposed
changes if defence of honest belief
is used, the jury must decide if the
defence was made on reasonable
grounds, Ranson said. "This becomes very dangerous."
"If we say honest belief is a defence, even if it's on reasonable
grounds, does that protect women?
No."
MP Svend Robinson (NDP - Burnaby) also made an unexpected appearance Friday. "Excuse me for
being rude," said Robinson as he
interrupted Ranson's speech. Robinson gave a short wrap-up of the
proposed amendments' current status in parliament.
But a spokesperson for the women's committee (which sponsored
the event) said Robinson's presence
was not entirely welcome. "I think
the women's committee would have
welcomed Svend Robinson's opinion but we didn't appreciate having
the meeting interrupted."

Women ignored in charter
OTTAWA (CUP) — The federal
government's proposed charter of
rights will not guarantee women's
rights unless it is extensively changed, according to a conference on
Cuts 'smokescreened
Canadian University Press
The task force on federal social and education spending is nothing more than a "smokescreen for massive
federal cutbacks," say two student organizations.   .
Both the B.C. Students Federation and the National
Union of Students are criticizing the task force, announced last week, for consisting solely of members of
parliament.
"To get anywhere in this business, they're going to
have to deal with student and community representatives," NUS fieldworker Mike Miller said Monday.
"There has got to be wider input into what is going
on."
About 15 students met with secretary of state Francis Fox on Friday to express their lack of confidence in
the task force and their fear about the effects federal
cutbacks would have on post-secondary education.
The federal government, through the $9 billion
Established Program Funding plan, funds provincial
health, social assistance and education ministries.
About $3 billion is allocated to post-secondary education in cash transfers and tax points, and this is where
the biggest cuts are expected by provincial governments and educators.
B.C. currently receives $335 million under the EPF
— almost two-thirds of the total provincial post-
secondary revenue. Provincial government sources and
UBC atdministration president Doug Kenny agree the
shortfall will have to be met by students and the B.C.
government.
Fox said the federal government has not decided
where the cuts will be made, but added his government
will be entering negotiations for funding with several
goals in mind. (The current EPF arrangement ends in
April, 1982, and negotiations will start within the next
two months.)
The federal government, Fox said, wants to improve
the "accountability" and visibility of the funding program, and develop national goals for education. Currently the provinces may spend funding received under
EPF in other areas such as highways.
The task force will presumably monitor negotiations
and examine the effect of any government cutbacks,
but a description of its purpose and mandate has not
been stated.
Fox was in Vancouver to address a national symposium on federal-provincial relations in education
held at the Bayshore Inn. About 35 students, mostly
from Capilano College and Simon Fraser University,
picketed in front of the hotel to protest the possibility
of cutbacks.
While speaking to 200 educators and bureaucrats inside the hotel. Fox hinted strongly that some federal
cuts would take place regardless of provincial concerns.
women and the constitution held
here Feb. 14 and 15.
The conference, which attracted
over 1,000 women from across Canada, said it could not support including the charter in the package
to be sent to Britain unless seven
changes were made to remove "serious wording problems."
Participants at the conference
said the proposed charier was so
vague and so poorly worded that
even the guarantees of equality of
the sexes could be challenged in the
courts or overridden by the federal
government. Furthermore, it would
not prevent sex discrimination because its wording is the same as current laws which have allowed the
federal government to deny status
to Indian women who marry white
men, they said.
Conference speaker Deborah
Acheson suggested that a clause,
which says the entire charter should
be interpreted consistent with Canada's multicultural heritage, could
be distorted by the courts to mean
that any discrimination against women, up to and including genital
mutilation, would be acceptable if
culturally based.
Other speakers pointed out that a
clause allowing affirmative action
programs would not necessarily allow women to qualify, and that it
might allow an affirmative action
program for one type of discrimination to discriminate on other
grounds. They also said the clause
dealing with equality and affirmative action will not be implemented
until three years after the charter is
passed, unlike the other clauses.
The conference was called in late
January after the Canadian advisory council on the status of women cancelled a conference on the
constitution planned for Feb. 14.
Council president Doris Anderson
resigned over the incident, charging
Lloyd Axworthy, the minister responsible for the status of women,
with pressuring council members to
cancel to avoid embarrassment to
the government.
The conference passed a motion
of support for Anderson's stand
and called for Axworthy's removal
as minister responsible for the
status of women. It also called for a
review committee to reassess the
role and structure of the advisory
council, saying the council should
be responsible to and be selected by
parliament, not the cabinet.
Participants at the conference
plan to lobby all MPs and senators
to change the charter during the upcoming third reading. If the revisions are not made before the bill
passes, they ask that the charter not
be sent to Britain but instead be
amended in Canada by a constituency assembly with 50 per cent
female composition.
The conference also called for a
"full and fair" debate in parliament on the charter, with no use of
closure. Page 4

to speak at UBC Wednesday
The new Boss
The new Alma Mater Society executive doesn't even take power until
tomorrow and already two of them are fulfilling our campaign predictions.
They can't even wait to take office before displaying how unprincipled, arrogant and uncaring they are.
According to Marlea Haugen the decision we students made last week in
our thousands to not go ahead with building projects is not to be considered anything but an error in our ways. Like sulking children we will be
made to do it again and again until we get it right — her way.
The AMS president-elect, we hope, will soon realize she owes more
responsibility and responsiveness to the students than to start off immediately by ignoring a democratic statement of such magnitude.
She joins outgoing executive members in blaming the defeat of the SUB
renovations referendum on student apathy. Student antipathy is more the
word. Never did the AMS executive's dream monument generate the least
enthusiasm among students, but the building fee issue got quite a reaction.
When students found out the AMS planned to extract their $15 a year
whether the referendum passed or not, they rightfully got angry. The
results were counted Friday.
More than 3,100 students voted, a high number by any standard in the
last decade of AMS votes. Opposition to the proposals was strong and
there wasn't the slightest doubt why; the refusal of the AMS to kill the
building fee if the students so wished.
But Haugen has entered the cloud-cuckoo land in the corner of SUB and
has declared the constitution that put her there meaningless and invalid.
Her affirmation that the fee will continue come hell, high water or student wishes to the contrary is sheer gall. We beg to point out there's no
grounds for such an action, just as there have been no grounds from the
first time it was contemplated.
The original referendum which began the AMS building fee is quite explicit; funds were to be levied only to "complete the student union building
project."
The students last week decided, for at least the coming year, that the
SUB building project has indeed been completed. There isn't the faintest
justification for the AMS to collect the fee next September.
Haugen, who we know to be an honest person, is either a fool or a liar.
Peter Mitchell, on the other hand. . .
He's certainly no fool. After all, he got himself elected vice-president and
only a week before taking office had criminal charges dropped against him
that resulted from an attempted campus 'prank.'
But we can't help noting Mitchell's attitude afterwards. Despite the decision being clearly stated, that since his 'prank' wasn't necessarily criminal it
shouldn't be tried by courts, he maintains he did no wrong. Rather, he says
'distractions' can be beneficial to student society.
The courts said UBC disciplinary bodies should handle the matter.
Should none come forward, we suggest Mitchell make a full apology for
his actions and make an effort, an honest effort, to rise above his faculty
and serve all the students by working to prevent future 'pranks.'
Individuals can help refugees through WUSC
According to the UN high commissioner for refugees the refugee
problem today is worse than at any
time in modern history and has
reached explosive proportions.
There are 16 million refugees worldwide and their number is increasing
daily. The tragedy of the situation is
compounded by the fact that those
countries which can least afford it
are the ones who bear the heaviest
burden in accommodating the
growing number of refugees.
Sixteen million — the very number makes it hard to imagine the
tragedy involved in terms of personal hardship and suffering. Yet
each one of those 16 million is a
person who has decided to flee his
or her own country for fear of per
secution or death, and who has
chosen instead the uncertainties of
life in another country as a refugee.
The magnitude of the problem
should not make us forget the fact
that we are speaking of individuals
and not of a nameless, faceless
mass.
If the refugee situation is seen as
the result of the actions of millions
of individuals then perhaps a solution to the problem can likewise be
arrived at through the actions of
millions of individuals. If conscientious people are aware of the situation and have an opportunity to
contribute to a solution then perhaps the problem is not as hopeless
as the numbers might suggest.
Recent changes in the immigra
tion act have made it possible for
Canadian citizens to put into practise their concern for the refugees of
the world and to make a personal
contribution towards a solution to
their problem. According to the
new regulations private organizations or groups of individuals can
sponsor a refugee to come to Canada if the sponsors commit themselves to helping the newcomers become established in the community.
In accordance with this new regulation World University Service of
Canada (WUSC) has implemented
a program to aid refugee students
from third world countries.
Through this program students on
Canadian campuses can show their
News from world of BoG
From time to time the students
who represent you on the board of
governors will be reporting to you
on what goes on at meetings of that
body which makes many of the
most important decisions at UBC.
Such reporting is necessary since
segments of board meetings are
closed to the public.
The two most important decisions this month were:
1. To agree in principle to the establishment of Discovery Park
(near TRIUMF) (58-acre research
park);
2. To apply to the universities
council of B.C. (UCBC) for funding for a main library proposal to
expand underground between
Sedgewick and Main libraries in a
three-phase project.
For students in science and education, the fee levy of $2, that you
voted on last year, has been approved.
The BoG approved the agreement
between the students (AMS) and
food services for renovations in
SUB cafeteria.
The construction of a berm to
stop erosion of the Point Grey cliffs
will start in the next few months.
The parking area by Vanier has
finally been expanded.
The RCMP has decided not to
drop a patrolman.
Lastly, J. V. Clyne has been reelected as chancellor for another
three years.
If anyone wants to get hold of us:
1. Phone 228-2050 (leave a message where we can reach you if you
don't get us), 9:30-4:30 weekdays.

concern for the plight of the refugees by sponsoring a refugee student to come to Canada and giving
that student the opportunity to
complete his or her education. Five
students have already come to Canada under this program, all sponsored by students on various campuses across the country.
The UBC WUSC club is now trying to raise funds to sponsor an Eritrean student, Eyob Goitom, to
come to UBC to study for the
1981-82 academic year. Eyob was
attending university in Addis
Ababa, Ethiopia until he was forced to flee to the Sudan in 1976 as a
result of widespread persecutions in
Ethiopia. Thus he became one of
the world's millions of refugees.
But now with the support of WUSC
and the students of UBC he can
have the opportunity to continue
his education. Equally as important, UBC students have the opportunity to express their concern for
one of the world's major problems
in a positive way.
Next week the UBC WUSC club
is holding a starvathon to raise
funds to enable Eyob to come to
UBC. They have set a goal of $5,-
000 and so far they have been able
to raise $2,800 towards that mark.
To reach their goal they need the
support of all of us. When there are
16 million refugees in the world it
may seem that helping only one is
an inadequate response to a critical
problem. But the present refugee
situation arises as the result of decisions taken by 16 million individuals and if we as individuals can
make some effort to arrive at a
solution to the problem perhaps
more people can be spurred to do
the same, and a response adequate
to the situation can be achieved.
WUSC is a national organization
aimed at promoting third world development and development education by establishing links between
universities and students in Canada
and abroad. Besides the refugee
program they also work with the
UN and governments abroad to arrange teaching posts overseas and
provide other forms of assistance to
schools and universities in third
world countries.

Woody should stick to writing
By STEVE McCLURE
Those bored and insulted by
Woody Allen's last movie, Stardust
Memories, should pick up a copy of
Side Effects, Allen's latest collection of short essays and sketches.
Side Effects
By Woody Allen
Random House
It seems that as Allen gets less
funny and spontaneous in his films
his written work improves correspondingly. Each line of prose
that he writes betrays an anarchic,
cynical wit that has been finely
honed through the years to the
point where the unsuspecting reader
finds him or herself in uncontrollable fits of laughter.
Much of Allen's writing is concerned with the ways and
wherefores of the New York intellectual community which has
received its fair share of abuse in his
last few films. But here Allen uses a
lighter touch and injects just
enough of the absurd into his little
descriptions of the quirks of his
fellow New Yorkers, as in
Remembering Needleman:
Needleman   was not  an  easily
understood man. His reticence was
mistaken for coldness, but he was
capable of great compassion, and
after witnessing a particularly horrible mine disaster once, he could not
finish a second helping of wrtffles.
In the course of Allen's description of Needleman's life we are introduced to such treatises as Non-
Existence: What To Do If It Suddenly Strikes You, and Semantic
Modes of Non-Essential Functioning, "... which was made into the
hit movie, They Flew By Night."
Allen also lampoons the anxiety-
ridden novels of Sartre and his ex
istential cronies in The Condemned,
which reads like The Marx Brothers
meet Albert Camus:
"Didyou kill him?" she asked as
he entered her flat.
"Yes," Cloquet said.
"Are you sure he is dead?"
"He seemed dead. I did my imitation of Maurice Chevalier, and it
usually gets a big hand. This time,
nothing."
"Good. Then he'll never betray
the Party again."
Sometimes Allen's humor can be
repetitive but for the most part his
between utter despair and laughing
in the face of it all.
In his written work Allen's
descriptive talents are exhibited as
they never have been before. He
must surely be one of the most
overlooked masters of English style
around these days. It's tempting to
take the easy way out and say that
Allen reminds one of James
Thurber and Franz Kafka rolled up
into one.
What comes through all of
Allen's writing is his desire to laugh
Sharing with Near
By JULIE WHEELWRIGHT
It is rare when a sincere, concerned performer can sing passionately
about social issues and avoid the
trap of mounting a soap box to get
a message across.
But Saturday nigHf singer-songwriter Holly Near did just that.
At an overflowing John Oliver
high school auditorium, Near was
accompanied by Arienne Torf and
an interpreter for the deaf as she
sang about what was on her mind.
The concert was more than entertainment, it was a sharing of fears,
hopes and worries with a receptive
audience. The audience sang along
with Near in songs like Hay Una
Mujer, her taut, emotional tribute
to the "missing" women artists in
Chile and El Salvador.
Near sings about women's lives
and problems; about mental institutions, jails, take back the night marches, relationships, and unemployment. In one humorous tribute to a
lover, a takeoff on Has Anybody
Seen My Gal, the woman is no
longer, "five foot two eyes of blue,
kitchy-kitchy-kitchy coo," but has
joined a picket line and grown another 12 inches.
Torf provided skilled, lively accompaniment, invoking humor and
adding inspired piano solos.
The interpreter for the deaf added a unique dimension to the performance.   Her  dance-like  move-
NEAR . . . rare sincerity
ments in sign language caught the
tempo and feel of Near's music, as
her hands flashed out words.
Since local singer Ferron was in
the audience, Near sang Testimony,
the title cut from the Vancouver artist's recent album. Near molded,
blended and shaped the song with
her powerful voice.
She also talked about, and encouraged the audience to sing along
with, another of Ferron's songs; I
Was Born A Great Big Woman, the
story of the Appalachian women's
struggle to save their land from the
strip mining companies.
"That was the best Valentine
anyone ever gave me," Ferron yelled out in thanks.
Near was also able to pull off a
request from the audience, when someone yelled out a suggestion that
she add some verses to a song she
just finished. Near started, then
broke out in laughter, "I forgot the
words."
With the election of Ronald Reagan and the re-emergence of the
anti-homosexual right-wing movement, Near reminded people of the
dangers gays continue to face. She
urged the audience to take part in a
gay pride song, "so nobody will
know who is what."
Women Against Nuclear Technology was the group that brought
Near to Vancouver and organized
an anti-nuclear educational session
at Langara campus for the following day. The concert was a fundraiser for the group and Near is well
acquainted with the cause.
Take It With You was the theme
of the anti-nuke single released last
spring in conjunction with Near's
American tour. "I felt like it was a
real success. We made quite a bit of
money for local anti-nuke groups; it
was a very grassroots thing," said
Near of the tour.
ALLEN . . . comic
fertile imagination and the abundance of targets for his barbed wit
are enough to ensure that the laughs
keep coming.
If Allen has been trying to make
the serious side of his mind evident
in his last few films, his comic
talents haven't suffered. Perhaps
there is less of a tendency for him to
get into outright slapstick in his
written work, as opposed to his
films, which are full of the contrast
talent not suffering
despite all the madness that now
passes for sanity. His clear vision of
the world is summed up in the opening lines of "My Speech to the
Graduates":
More than any other time in
history, mankind faces a
crossroads. One path leads to
1 despair and utter hopelessness, the
other, to total extinction. Let us
pray we have the wisdom to choose
correctly.

Neither Hanoi nor Saigon, Montreal

should you care about anything
anybody does to anybody
anyways?
The answer, my friends, is that
the people of the world must get together and talk about their problems. Right comrade.
So thafs why the UBC International Socialists are bringing Ian
Birchall, member of the Socialist
Workers' Party of Britain to SUB
115 at 4 p.m. on Wednesday. The
superpowers are coming ever closer
to something, so Birchall's talk will
be called Neither Moscow nor

Once upon a time in the kingdom
of mellow the peasant students
would while away their time wandering from bar to bar playing backgammon and spouting such drivel
as "Hi there, come here often?" or
the ever popular "Hey, what's your
sign?"
Some things never change. Except now when people ask "What* s
your sign," they're usually referring
to a large wooden object that says
"On Strike" and "Locked Out."
At noon today there will be a rally
in the SUB plaza to support striking/locked out phone and civic
workers. Its main slogan will be
"Victory to TWU/CUPE, defend
the unions!" Speakers include Gillian Campbell, negotiating committee CUPE local 561, Library; Bill
Brewer, member TWU? Hilda
Thomas, NDP women's committee
representative; Evert Rogers, president Vancouver CUPW local; and a
representative of the Trotskyist
League which is sponsoring the rally.
Word's out
The word, as they say, is out.
A pioneering film on what it
means to be a homosexual in the
U.S. today. Word is Out: Stories of
Some of Our Lives presents conversations with 26 gay men and
women.
Gay People of UBC are presenting this film twice, at noon today in
the SUB ballroom and at 8 p.m.
Wednesday in the SUB auditorium.
The documentary runs 135 minutes and donations are requested to
defray the expenses.

AMS hacks
screw up
Lack of organization appears to
plague the Alma Mater Society annual general meeting scheduled for
Wednesday in the SUB conversation pit.
Although approving the preceding fiscal year's financial statements
is part of the meeting's business,
this year's statements are not yet
complete.
AMS administration director
Craig Brooks said Monday the
statements are entering the final
stages, and might be ready in time
for the meeting.
Another problem with the meeting is that the first announcement
of it appears in today's Ubyssey.
The AMS constitution says it must
be advertised at least two weeks in
advance.
The interfaculty cup will not be
presented at the meeting because
points toward the cup have not
been gathered this year.
Both advertising and gathering
faculty points is the job of the AMS
vice-president, Marlea Haugen.
Once the meeting takes place, Haugen will be this year's president.
Another problem with this year's
meeting is that the conversation pit
could not fit quorum, which is
2,300. But Brooks said students
could stand outside if quorum was
attained.
"Do you realistically think we're
going to get quorum? The only
place large enough on campus is the
War Memorial Gym, and it would
cost a couple of thousand dollars.
Don't be ridiculous. And you'd inconvenience more students than
you'd satisfy. What an absurd
idea," Brooks said.
If quorum is not reached by 12:45
p.m., Brooks said thousands of
back copies of The Ubyssey will be
burned in the SUB south patio to
attract attention to it.
If quroum is not reached by 1
p.m., the meeting is called to order
and the students present are empowered to receive the financial
statements, appoint next year's
auditors of the society, and receive
reports from the outgoing president
and general manager.
The meeting marks the end of
term for last year's executive, and
the end of academic success for the
newly elected executive.
Quorum has not been reached
since 1976, when a concert took
place in conjunction with it.

'Birds split games
By SCOTT McDONALD
The UBC Thunderbirds split a
pair of basketball games with the
University of Calgary this weekend
at War Memorial Gym.
The 'Birds only played one strong
half of basketball in the two games.
That came in the second half of the
Friday game and it carried them to
a 77-71 win. Saturday night UBC
fizzled in both halves and came up
with their worst shooting performance of the season to lose 84-70.
The Saturday loss has virtually
eliminated the 'Birds from the playoffs.
At halftime in the Friday game
UBC was behind 36-32 and Calgary's Steve Atkin had already scored 18 points. Atkin, the leading
scorer in Canada West, had a five
inch advantage on his UBC check
Bob Forsythe. In the second half
Forsyth got a little more help from
his teammates and Atkin was held
to 11 points.
In women's action the Thunderettes took it on the chin again this
weekend. Calgary knocked them
off 66-40 Friday and 83-43 Saturday.
Cathy Bultitude was once again
the leading UBC scorer. Bultitude
had 14 points each night which
helped maintain her sixth place
standing among the league's scoring
leaders. The fact that Bultitude is
even among the scoring leaders is
surprising considering that UBC
has a 0-18 record.

John Doughty was the top 'Bird-
man Friday night with 22 points
and 13 rebounds. Forsyth contributed 21 points.
The only other Calgary player in
double figures was Karl Tilleman.
Tilleman, who is the league's second highest scorer, had an off night
with only 20 points, 7 below his
game average.
Saturday night was a different
story for both UBC and Tilleman.
The 'Birds shot a very cold 33 per
cent and Tilleman was hot with 35
points.
Tilleman, Atkin with 24 points
and Mike Buckrop with 17 accounted for 76 of Calgary's 84 points.
UBC, who took 20 more shots
than Calgary yet sank nine less,
were led by Forsyth's 20 points.

UBC wins in overtime
By KENT WESTERBERG
Last year's national hockey
champions, the University of Alberta Golden Bears, lost to last
place UBC Thunderbirds Sunday in
triple overtime, and the Bears will
miss the playoffs for the first time
in 18 years.
The 'Birds outlasted the Golden
Bears Sunday afternoon in Edmonton, winning 9-8 after four and a
half hours of play. UBC was coming off a disastrous two days in Calgary, where the University of Calgary Dinosaurs whipped the team
11-4 Friday night and 5-3 on Saturday.
UBC's first league victory on the
road this year, after losing to Calgary in two games, pleased coach
Ben Halliwell.
"We came off disaster in Calgary
to play our best game of the year in
Edmonton," Halliwell said.
Ted Cotter scored the winning
goal in the third overtime period,
winning the game for UBC and at
the same time knocking Alberta out
of the playoffs.
The victory proved even more
satisfying for the 'Birds since they
battled back from a 6-3 deficit in
the third period and an 8-6 margin
in the first overtime period.
Bill Holowaty led the 'Birds with
three goals and Chris Helland replied for the Bears three times to
lead U of A.
Friday night in Calgary, the
'Birds suffered a "complete
physical and mental collapse,"
Halliwell said, when Calgary scored
seven goals in the third period to
defeat the 'Birds 11-4.
Saturday night, also in Calgary,
the 'Birds played well, according to
Halliwell, but still lost 5-3. He said
the turning point in that game came
when UBC had a goal disallowed
and shortly thereafter Calgary scored a shorthanded goal.
The Dinos now need to win only
one of their remaining four games
to clinch first place and home ice
advantage for the playoffs, whereas
Saskatchewan must win all of their
remaining games to do the same.
Meanwhile, the U of A Golden
Bears, along with 'Bird players Jim
Mclaughlin, Ron Paterson and Bill
Holowaty, are preparing to leave
Sunday for the World Student
Games in Spain.
This weekend the U of S Huskies
will be in town as the 'Birds wrap
up their season at the Thunderbird
winter sports centre Friday and Saturday nights.
After losing badly to SFU last
weekend, the UBC men's swimming
and diving team made a strong
comeback Friday night. They defeated Portland State University
73-25.
Andy Thomas (50m freestyle,
200m backstroke), Bruce Ripley
(200m medley), Bruno Malibert
(200m butterfly), Shaune Stoddard
(100m freestyle), A. Paterson
(200m breaststroke), and C. Church
(3m diving) all contributed first
place finishes for UBC. The 'Birds
also won both the 400m medley relay and the 400m freestyle relay.

Even though the weather was bad
enough to force the cancellation of
scheduled rugby and soccer games,
the Thunderette field hockey team
managed to slip and slide to a 4-1
victory over the 'Lomas in Vancouver league play Saturday.
Although  UBC's  Patti  Sakaki
won every event and was first over
all in Friday's dual gymnastics
meet, the Thunderettes ended up
with only 133 points and a tie with
Boise State University'. UBC's Michele Sirett was third overall. Lani
Wong was sixth.

UBC wrestlers finished fifth overall at the CWUAA championships
in Calgary this weekend. Lakehead
University was first with 69 points,
followed by Calgary with 60, Saskatchewan with 54, Alberta with
51, UBC with 45 and Regina with
25.
