day to the voters' list he has sent
two revising teams to Gage. The office is open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
until Jan. 24.
Harold Morris is a man who does
not want to hear complaints.
Morris, the returning officer for
Vancouver-Quadra, said Monday
he has taken great pains to avoid
complaints regarding revisions to
the voters' lists in the upcoming
federal election.
"We're putting in a lot of effort
so there won't be any bitching or
belly-aching about not having
enough time to register," he said.
Morris said students who have
reached voting age or changed residence since the last federal election
have until Feb. 4 to register themselves as voters in the Feb. 18 election.
Students who live in UBC residences, but come from homes outside Vancouver-Quadra, have a
choice of ridings to vote in, said
Morris.
Students who want to register in
their home ridings will have to return home on election day or .vote
by proxy. Students voting by proxy
must authorize a friend or relative
to vote for them.
Forms for proxy can be obtained
at the appropriate district electoral
offices, said Morris.
Students not planning to vote in
their parent's home ridings must
show ud ai a revision office with
some identification and five
minutes to spare, he said.
Morris said the locations of district revising offices are available at
local electoral offices. If you are in
residence at UBC, the revising office is located at the North Tower
lounge of Walter Gage residence.
Morris said since he expects to
make as many as 100 revisions per

Candidates critical
off returning officer
Student board of governors
hopefuls have been left high, dry
and speechless by a student
representative assembly elections
committee foul-up which resulted in
the permanent postponement of a
planned all-candidates meeting.
The meeting had been scheduled
for noon Friday in the SUB conversation pit, but Alma Mater Society
returning officer Diane Campbell
admitted that only one candidate
knew about the forum before it was
scheduled to begin.
She said the forum was then
postponed until Monday, when the
elections committee members
organizing the forum realized their
mistake. But yesterday three candidates backed out of the forum
citing personal reasons for their
cancellations, and the meeting was
permanently scrapped.
This marks the first time a UBC
student board election has been
held without such a forum.
And board candidates are incensed by what they term "sheer incompetence" on the part of the
committee in failing to organize the
meeting properly.
"You can't expect students to
make an intelligent choice unless
given a chance to confront the candidates", said board hopeful Bob
Staley. "If they listen to candidates
confront each other, students can
get an idea of who's best for the
job."
Candidates Anthony Dickinson,
Shirley Waters, John Pellizzon and
Valgeet Johl were all unaware of
Friday's scheduled all candidates
meeting. Johl said she was "really
disappointed" with the whole affair.
"It's unfortunate for students
that they're not able to find out
about the issues," she said.
But Campbell said the two
cancellations were due to "a
misunderstanding on everybody's
part. I was under the impression
that everyone could make it," she
said.
Committee member Mike
Coombes blamed a lack of advertising for cancellation of the event,
which would have been the only
campus-wide forum in what was
a generally lacklustre campaign.
And   Campbell   claimed   that
students were still sufficiently aware
of issues in the campaign without a
forum. "By speaking to clubs and

Canada 'crucial to
Chilean dictator*
TORONTO (CUP) — "Canada
is a crucial country to the Chilean
dictatorship," Hortensia Allende,
widow of slain Chilean president
Salvador Allende, told a conference
here Saturday.
Canada must cease all economic
activity with Chile because government repression there was making a
joke of human rights, Allende told
a conference for justice in Chile at
the University of Toronto law
school.
Allende said the 1973 coup led by
General Augusto Pinochet left 100,-
000 in jail and more than 30,000
dead, including her husband who
was slain during the coup.
"Pinochet's junta would like
people to believe that the human
rights situation in Chile has improved. On the contrary, there is still
torture, oppression and murder."
Allende condemned Canadian
corporations with investments in
Chile, accusing Noranda Mines,
Falconbridge Nickel, the Montreal
Trust Co., and the large private
banks of furthering repression in
Chile.
(UBC has shares in the Royal
Bank, the Canadian Imperial Bank
of Commerce and the Bank of
Montreal, all of which have invest
ments in Chile. The board of governors sold UBC's 8,000 shares in
Noranda this summer.)
The conference unanimously
condemned the Chilean military
junta for widespread violations of
human rights. The conference was
held to draft a presentation for the
United Nations human rights commission, which meets in Geneva
Feb. 2.
The conference drafted a "Document of Toronto" which concluded that "the Pinochet government
is trying to institutionalize its reign
of terror."
"The vast majority of Chileans,
especially the working class, have
suffered and will continue to suffer
under the Pinochet regime," it
stated.
Val Bjarnason, a trade union official, called on the Canadian Labor
Congress and its affiliated provincial organizations to renew and extend last fall's one-week boycott of
Chile^an goods.
Bjarnason said Chile's new labor
act has reduced or eliminated the
minimum wage for many workers,
and undermined many aspects of
collective bargaining by eliminating
many worker rights.
Peter expects to Pearse Tory bastion
By HEATHER CONN
Some people might call Peter Pearse a wolf in
sheep's clothing — it just depends what side of the
fence you're on.
The newly-nominated Liberal candidate for
Vancouver-Quadra says that on policies of social
change, people tend to identify him "more to the left
of centre" of the Liberal party. And on economic
policy, he claims he's associated with the right.
But one thing's for sure — he disagrees frequently
with Liberal party policy.
Pearse recognizes definite problems with the
Canada student loan program, originally introduced
through a Liberal program. He thinks the federal
government's existing limits on available loan money
must be changed, along with the student eligibility
criteria.
"I think that in many cases, the fact that eligibility
hinges on the financial status of one's parents is inappropriate criteria," he says. "Students can be
treated as individual adults on their own."
Pearse says he thinks his personal involvement
with UBC — first as a student, then professor, senate
member and board of governors member renders him
a strong representative sensitive to student interests.
"My involvement in the university is probably as
deep as you can possibly find," he says. "Students of
UBC ought to realize we're entering a time now when
higher education is facing some severe fiscal
restraint.
"The university needs some strong representation
in parliament from people who understand it."
Research funding is one seriously underfinanced
area of the university, compared to work done in
other countries, says Pearse.
"I'm a great advocate for heavy thrust on research

Thunderbird rugby team establishes overlap against Cowichan in action Saturday
NUS referendum scheme rises from ashes
Election mania is not over yet.
UBC students could soon be
voting on a referendum that would
officially allow the campus to
become a member of the National
Union of Students. Referendum
organizer Chris Niwinski wants the
Alma Mater Society to either join
the union or cut off all ties with it.
"We should either belong to it
and get the full benefits, or stop
spending money on it," he said
Monday.
Niwinski said he will move a motion at Wednesday's student
representative assembly meeting
asking that the referendum be held
so students can decide whether the
AMS should join the organization
and pay the $1 per student enrolled
membership fee.
The AMS currently maintains a
loose affiliation with NUS, receiving a NUS publication called Student Advocate, and sending
delegates to NUS conferences. But
because UBC is not a NUS member,
delegates cannot vote or sit on the
NUS central committee.
But Niwinski admits he hopes the
referendum will fail if it goes to a
vote. "NUS is ineffective right
now, the guts of the organization is
stagnant. With new blood it could
remain viable, but if you look at the
new staff members most of them
are the same as five years ago."
AMS external affairs officer
Valgeet Johl said students are not
currently informed enough about
NUS to decide whether or not to
join it. "Right now I don't think we
have informed the students enough
to get an objective perspective," she
said.
"And I don't feel that the advocates of the referendum feel that
they have an obligation to inform
students of the issue," said Johl.
"I'd support a motion for a
referendum if I felt that the people
who are proposing it are honestly in
favor of the organization."
The NUS membership fee would
cost the AMS $23,000. Niwinski
says that. because of the sum of
VOC seeks $30,000
By GEOF WHEELWRIGHT
The UBC Varsity Outdoors Club
is seeking a $30,000 out-of-court
settlement from the Alma Mater
Society for materials the club purchased to build a cabin at Whistler
Mountain more than 10 years ago.
Club president Paul Hooper said
the club will request a $30,000
building grant from the student
representative assembly Wednesday
night. But he said if the grant is not
approved the club will carry out
legal proceedings it has already
started to recover the cost of
building the UBC Whistler ski
cabin.
But Hooper claims that the grant
request should not be treated by the
SRA as compensation for the
Whistler cabin.
"We're not asking for compensation. We're looking at it on a completely new tangent," said Hooper.
"We're trying to make the propop-
sal as amenable as possible."
Hooper stressed that if the club
did not get the action it wanted, it
would proceed with the court action
it has been launching since 1975,
shortly after the cabin was taken
over by the UBC ski club. "The
court case is still to let them (the
SRA) know we're serious about the
matter," he said.
But AMS president Brian Short
said the SRA might not be able to
grant the funding requests, even if it
votes in favor of such action. "We
probably have to get a legal opinion, it (the funding request) could
have to go to a referendum," he
said.
Short said unless the $30,000
grant was paid over a long period of
time students would probably have
to approve the expenditure by
referendum. And Short added he is
not worried about the possibility of
a VOC lawsuit if the club's request
is turned down.
But Hooper said the VOC needs
the money to repair three of its existing cabins and to build a new
cabin near McGillvray Pass, outside
of Pemberton. Short said he wants
more information on the proposed
work before he will support the
VOC demands.
"I'm in favor of the VOC
building a new cabin but that
depends on what standards it has,
how much it is going to cost, who is
going to be using it and how essential it is," he said.
money involved, "NUS wants our
membership badly."
"Financially NUS is in trouble,
NUS should stand on its own as an
organization. As it is, it is being
supported by profits from the
Association of Student Councils,"
he added.
Johl said NUS is suffering financially, but added that the AOSC is
suffering as well. "NUS could not
be leeching off of them," she said.
"There is a lot we could gain
from joining NUS. UBC should be
well represented when student
organizations lobby for student
concerns in Ottawa. If it is the
desire of people to have a part in the
decision-making policies, we can
only achieve that through membership in NUS."
AMS secretary-treasurer Glenn
Wong, who seconded the referendum motion, said he is concerned
students will be politically isolated
without membership in NUS.
"What resources have we got to
send someone to Ottawa to lobby
for student concerns? By joining
NUS we're plugging into that whole
network. I am very much in support
of a national student
organization," he added.
Johl, also in favor of joining
NUS, cited examples of NUS issues,
which include: increasing student
grants, favouring accessibility and
thus decreasing tuition fees, improving the quality of education,
eliminating cutbacks, and having
the age of independence for student
loans dropped to 18.
Prof job policy 'good' — Vogt
By PETER FERGUSON
The UBC board of governors'
new policy on outside employment
has been called acceptable by some
faculty and professional school
deans.
But while the policy states
faculties should draw up their own
guidelines, UBC's administrative
vice-president of faculty and student affairs made it clear yesterday
that individual guidelines will have
to be approved by administration
president Doug Kenny.
"They can't simply make their
own guidelines," said Erich Vogt.
Faculties will have to stay quite
close to the half day per seven set
out in the recent board policy, he
added.
Vogt said he felt the policy was a
good one. "At present we have the
strongest policy that I know of in
Canada," he said.
Nevertheless, most deans expressed general satisfaction with the
policy.
Applied Science dean Martin
Wedepohl said the guidelines are
reasonable. "With very minor
reservations I think the guidelines
set out are good ones," he said. "I
would prefer to be more liberal in
individual cases."
He said outside work is desirable
because the university should show
more leadership in the community.
But he stressed that the faculty's
first priority is to teaching.
"Staff members must discharge
their responsibilities to the university," said Wedepohl.
Medicine dean William Webber
said his faculty is a special case
because they already have two types
of professors with varying respon
sibilities. He said regular full-time
classroom professors will be subject
to the half day limit.
He said the other type of work is
in the clinical departments and falls
under the technical job description
of "geographic full time."
Those professors conduct both
teaching and clinical supervision
work, said Webber.
He said their salary comes from
both working for UBC and for
hospitals or the provincial Medical
Services Plan. These two part time
salaries make up their full salary, he
said.
"Their total income we would
want to be competitive with practising doctors."
Law dean K.M. Lysyk said his
faculty will try to come up with a
faculty policy but claimed it would
be very difficult.
"We're talking about trying to
hit that happy medium, and that's
not always easy to do," he said.
Lysyk said the law school also
uses outside professionals because
of the value of their experience but
added that it causes special problems concerning outside employment.
Science dean Cyril Finnegan said
he will follow the board policy
unless his faculty comes up with a
new one. "There is a committee
looking into it and there will be a
recommendation presented to the
faculty," he said.
And commerce dean Peter
Lusztig said his faculty's guidelines
are mostly concerned with meeting
classroom duties.
"If those are met, then they (professors) can apply for more time,"
he said.
Lusztig said the amount of outside time allowed will depend on
how a professor performs his
university duties and on the nature
of the outside work. "We don't encourage repetitive or non-
innovative work," he said.

meeting killed

through poster campaigns candidates were able to inform students
of their campaign platforms," she
said.
"It wouldn't have attracted a

Voting ends today for the election of two student representatives

Revision at Gage
From page 1
Quadra can be obtained from the
electoral office, said Morris.
Morris said that so far close to
500 revisions have been made to the
voters' list at Walter Gage. Ten
thousand revisions are expected altogether in Vancouver-Quadra.
Normally a federal election requires door-to-door enumeration,
but the unexpected defeat of the
Conservative minority government
has made it necessary for the voters'
list of May 22, 1979 to stand as the
official list. "Because of the particular emergency it would have been
impossible to have an enumeration," Morris said. Page 4

Very Silly Party hits hustings
Apathy lives on
"SHEER INCOMPETENCE."
Apathy.
"MISUNDERSTANDING."
Disorganization.
"UNFORTUNATE."
Ignorance.
Ever get the feeling of deja vu?
Without fail, these traits of consistent bungling never cease to
disappear when the latest plans by the student representative
assembly elections' committee are announced. But this time, the
bumbling bureaucrats have used their senseless skills to delve one
step further into the deep realm of complete inadequacy.
"Oh, it's nothing," they coo. "A total lack of student input never
hurt anybody. Who needs concerned candidates and voters,
anyway?"
The committee's two cancellations of all-candidates meetings
left the student body tied, gagged and locked into ignorance on
who and what they'd be voting for as their student board reps today and at-large Alma Mater Society executives on Jan. 28 to 30.
By dismissing the electoral processes so ineptly and quashing a
much-needed and significant outlet for students to voice their concerns, the committee might as well don jack boots and swastikas
and administer its own kind of government.
They sure as hell aren't into free thinking and the public voice.
Returning officer Diane Campbell commits the worst blind error
with her terse admission of the all-candidates meeting: "It wouldn't
have attracted a large enough crowd."
Well, why even bother with student elections anyway? They're
just a pain in the ass for candidates and students and one more
thing to make the committee look like idiots ad nauseum. And
especially when the candidates themselves aren't even aware of
the meetings, due to grossly insufficient advertising by the SRA
body, the gatherings become even more of a hassle.
The recent acclamation of five senators at large is only one example of where student politics at UBC is headed. Such an event
was unprecedented, as was the lack of an all-candidates meeting
to review board candidates.
If students can't even be bothered to run for political positions
anymore, and if the student bureaucrats can't be bothered to
acknowledge the importance of political events and plan them accordingly, then we're just kidding ourselves if we think we've got
high-quality, solid student representation at UBC.
You can always blame it on bad advertising. But if you run an
election and no one runs and no one votes, then what do you do?
Think about it.

kicked out of every seedy bar between here and Eureka for being under age," lamented a greying
Verne McDonald. Steve McClure gave the aging Reichseditor the key to the city of Blaine while a by-
now senile Julie Wheelwright cackled with glee upon learning the easterner's earthly duration span.
"Now she's almost as old as Gary Brookfield," Peter Ferguson was heard to say before his cardiac arrest. "But of course no one's as old as Kevin Finnegan's jokes," claimed prematurely spaced Gten Sanford. Erica Leiren and Barry McKay gave the conniving one a big buss which left Dave Francis and
Ross Burnett to clean up the mess. Geof Wheelwright gave the red-haired siren of Etobicoke all his
conntrolling interests in a Latvian fruit dye conncern as Tom Hawthorn spewed righteous venom at the

Well, here we are again facing u::
other federal election and another
decision of who to vote for: Liberal, P.C. or NDP. We have seen
each party's policies all of which are
essentially the same.
The Liberals have held back in releasing their platform. My platform, on the other hand, is complete — it's a small one about five
feet high and is made of fir 2x4s.
TAs still waiting
The Teaching Assistants Union is
still waiting to be certified so that it
can begin contract negotiations
with the administration. The application for certification was made in
late November and for the last
month the administration, the
Labor Relations Board and the TA
union have been discussing the size
and shape of the bargaining unit.
At this point the union is awaiting the university's written response. Once this occurs it will become clearer as to how much
discussion and time will be necessary for all to agree on the composition of the bargaining unit. In any
case, the numbers signed indicate
that there at least will be a vote
amongst all TAs, markers, tutors,
etc. on the unionization question
and the chance of automatic certification without a vote is possible.

On the Iranian issue I would send
the Quebec Nordiques to Iran to
rescue the hostages. The Afghanistan situation is a sensitive one indeed. We should send in a Canadian armored division fully equipped with the latest in Canadian military technology and while the Russians are laughing we could steal
their military equipment.
What should be done about Margaret Trudeau — our nation's embarrassment? If I were elected I
would hire Edward Kennedy to be

If I was elected I would be a politician who could not be bought —

to the depths of despair. There's no Kokanee, no Heidelberg, no Hi
Test, no 1308, no Molson's Export.
What the hell's happened to that Pit of insobriety that is the only saving grace of this campus? This limited choice has forced us to down

Staley's candidacy for the

containing our explanation appeared in the Vancouver Sun (Dec.
7, 1979). While everyone concerned, including Resnick, have their
own personal position on the Canadian unity issue, the essence of the
protest is the unilateral decision
made by B.C. Hydro regarding circulation of the pamphlet, and their
subsequent use of the utility's
money to cover a portion of the
printing and distribution costs.
While we have no desire to take
issue with MacAdam, Bonner or
anyone else on their wishes to see
Canada remain united, we do object to the manner of achieving this
objective.
Of other utilities in Canada contemplating this move, Ontario and
Quebec Hydro both refused to involve themselves in this sensitive
political area. Perhaps MacAdam
would be a little more offended if
his tuition fees were raised because
UBC wanted to sponsor a political
candidate, send an athlete to the
Olympics, or other such arbitrary
action.
Or, perhaps MacAdam is getting
some first-hand legal experience at
slipping the right amount of money
in the right place when he donates
his $1 to B.C. Hydro. A word of
advice — don't advertise such actions — it'll only get you in trouble.

Kenny's on top
Your usual standards of accuracy
and objectivity somehow slipped on
the front page article of Jan. 17 entitled Kenny flip flops on off-
campus forum.
As you can see from the attached
letter I have since received from
Marty Lund, who is organizing a
Jan. 24 forum on Discovery Park,
even he calls your report "mistaken" and apologizes to me for the
"misinterpretation" of your reporter's view of Lund's remarks
made on Jan. 14.
The fact of the matter is that I am
meeting with the student
representative assembly park committee on Jan. 24. That is a university group and thus it seems entirely
proper to me that the meeting
should take place at UBC where access is open to all students.
Furthermore I have always been
willing to talk with responsible
community groups who wish to discuss the impact of university affairs
upon the community. I will continue to do so.

Menyasz picks up static from CITR feedback
In response to an article headed
Professionalism sought by CITR
radio — Analysis: In writing the article, Peter Menyasz has once again
displayed his talents of poor
analysis and negative, counterproductive thinking.
His talents are displayed as he
writes, "But Plant's dream has
some serious flaws he doesn't appear   able   to   appreciate."   The
"serious flaws" are not clearly laid
out by Menyasz. If he would take
the responsibility to identify what
the serious flaws are in "the
dream" of CITR, perhaps he would
spark some serious thought into the
flaws rather than a mere reaction to
his article.
For example, Menyasz wonders
"just how much control" the CITR
executive will have over the opera
tions of the station with the station
manager in existence. He then goes
on to say that Plant admits that the
station manager's experience and
continuity may awe the station's executive sufficiently to make his
decisions law. By taking this-
hypothetical situation as a certainty, Menyasz denies the ability of
student members to speak and act
upon   their   own   destiny.   When
Menyasz and myself discussed
"control," I said that the CITR executive would seriously consider the
input of the station manager. I did
not "admit" that the executive
would stand in awe of him.
Menyasz' "analysis" closes with,
"It's a grand dream ... it should
stay that, way." Please be informed
Menyasz, that the purpose of
CITR's proposal to hire a station

I'm writing on behalf of and at
the request of several of the
students involved in CITR-UBC
Radio. We feel that some of the
points made in last Wednesday's
"pay for play" article need
clarification.
First of all, for a club with well
over 70 members, we tend to pride
ourselves on just how democratic
we actually are. Any member with a
valid contribution or opinion can
bring it to the attention of a considerably overworked executive and
it will certainly be considered. In
fact, people willing to get involved
are welcomed with open arms by
the executive. As for your
"source", why doesn't he or she let
us know what they want to say?

None of the people involved with
the station have complained to us
about the way it's run, so how
credible can "the source's"
anonymous condemnation be?
As for the playlist, our music
director spends an enormous
amount of time studying the trade
magazines, talking to people in
record stores, listening to other stations and getting playlists from all
over the country, as well as studying
the British music press. And that's
just to figure out what goes on.
More research goes into picking
their spot on our playlist, but that's
mainly based on airtime given by
the individual jocks, and listener
response.
He would love to have other peo
ple helping make up the playlist,
but press-gangs went out with
deportation to Australia. The end
result of all that work and research
is a playlist that has won respect all
over the country (and that is not an
exaggeration!) as well as in Vancouver. Our playlist makes us more
than just the kindergarten of professional radio.
The low power FM project would
enable us to reach more UBC
students, specifically the ones in the
residences. The broadcast expansion brings with it increased responsibilities for the station, and a huge
amount of paperwork, which we as
students could not possibly handle
on top of everything else we have to
do. And LPFM or no LPFM,
CITR   has   grown   in   reputation
among professional radio stations.
Although we would never be in
direct commercial competition with
any of them, as we would draw our
revenue from the university and the
surrounding community, we do
compete for some listenership.
CITR is unique. We're a link between the campus and the city. We
provide a service, and it's a big
responsibility to handle. Filmsoc
doesn't need outside help because
they're not running a radio station.
We have a public, made up of both
students and non-students, and
we'd like to give them all a continually improving and expanding
sound to enjoy. We think we're
worth it.
Hilary Stout
CITR vice president
manager is to enable CITR to serve
the students of UBC better with expanded broadcast coverage on and
off campus and to improve the
quality of the on-air product.
Our prime concern is to improve
our services to the students of UBC.
We have come up with a means to
this end which involves improvement, progression, expansion and
challenge. If you think that you're
representing the students by condemning our goals through your
twisted writing, I think you're dead
wrong.
In closing, CITR's proposals for
improving our services are not only
"Plant's dream". The entire station
is working hard towards our goals.
CITR's members are collectively
making a realistic, progressive approach to becoming a better radio
station. Perhaps, Menyasz, you
wish to sit back and continue to be a
second rate analyzer of student activities, but you sit alone in your
dark corner of anti-productive
thinking.
Greg Plant
CITR president
P.S. On a general point about
The Ubyssey: I find it very disturbing that the campus newspaper
distorts information to a point
where it must rely on letters to the
editor for facts.

Snow, dough drought
Skiers face tough sledding
By DAVE FRANCIS
It has been an uphill battle getting started
for the UBC ski team this year.
UBC, the lone Canadian entry in the
23-team U.S. North-West Collegiate Ski
Conference, has faced a number of preseason problems stemming from poor local
ski conditions coupled with a threadbare
budget. But according to coach Bruce
Harland, UBC is still likely to repeat or better
last year's fourth place standing.
"We usually train and hold time trials on
local slopes before the season begins," said
Harland. "But without adequate snow cover,
we've had to train on land and without time
trials, we've had to guess at who our best
skiers are."
Harland said discipline on the team is self-
regulating. Only the skiers with the best times
will represent UBC, so there is always the incentive to practice and better one's performance, he said.
This year's men's team includes Harland,
Randy Davis, Bruce Hilland, Stuart Neilson,
Ian Tully, Gary Rowan, Rick Crowson, Gary
White and Tom Keller.
The women's team members are Maxine
Sevack,  Jane  Roots,  Patty Whittle,  Mya

Bert Halliwell's Thunderbirds went down
for the count on the weekend, losing a two-
game series to the University of Calgary 4-6
Friday and 9-1 Saturday.
Friday's scorers were Marty Matthews, Bill
Holowaty, Bill Trenaman and Rob Jones
with singles, while Matthews had the lone
goal Saturday.

Gerry Bancks scored two for the Dinos
Saturday with single collected by Paul Murray,   Jim   Bertram,   Greg   Stamler,   Steve
Blythe, Tom Gould, Ron Fischer and Roger
Mitchell.
"UBC played well Friday night," said
Halliwell. "It was a 4-4 tie late in third
period, but then Calgary broke away with a
power play goal and another into an empty
UBC net."
"On Saturday, our wheels fell off completely," he said. "Everyone had a bad game
at the same time. Our forward passing was
dismal and we lost the puck frequently on offensive turnovers."
Halliwell said UBC must win eight of the
next 10 games to make the play-offs. "It's
hard to think positively when you've lost
four games in a row, but with a few changes
we should be able to pull out of our current
slump," he said.
The two-game Calgary sweep puts the
Dinos in first place ahead of the rival University of Alberta squad, which lost 4-2 Saturday to last-place Saskatchewan.

Ski competition is divided into two
categories: alpine, which includes slalom and
giant slalom, and nordic, which includes
cross-country.
"Alpine events are our specialty and we're
usually able to build a big lead in the meet,"
said Harland. "Unfortunately, we lose the
gains made in the downhill when we fall apart
on the flats in cross-country."
Harland said UBC, which competes in the
eight-team Northern division of the conference, must attend at least three meets out
of five and must place in the top three to
qualify for the championship to be held at
Mount Bachelor, Oregon in late February.
Harland added UBC's position as a top-
ranked team is impressive when you consider
the competition. "On the slopes, we race
teams that can train for months in advance,
have budgets of $10,000 or more and have
scholarship programs to attract good skiers.
UBC competes with a $2,000 budget, no
scholarships and a great deal of dedication."
Outstanding skiers for UBC are Hilland in
the giant slalom, Stuart in the slalom and
Mya Davis and Tully in cross-country.
Rowan, team marfager, said UBC races
with the U.S. schools because there is no
Canadian collegiate conference. "Other
universities such as Simon Fraser University
and the University of Calgary have tried to
start ski programs, but inadequate funding
always sounds the death-knell."
"Sometimes UBC's budget means
roughing it a little bit," said Sevack.
"Transportation to our first meet consisted
of a rented van with no roof rack, which carried our entire 13-member team plus ski
equipment."
Harland said the quality of skiing on the
team is high as most of the members were
class A skiers with the federally-funded
Canada Ski Association prior to their enrollment at UBC.
UBC placed second behind the University
of Puget Sound this weekend at Mount
Hood, Oregon with Hilland picking up a first
in the giant slalom and Randy Davis a third
in the same event.
Talbot placed third for the women's team
in giant slalom, while Roots recorded a second in the cross-country.
• UBC will host the third meet of the season
next Friday through Sunday at Grouse
Mountain.
NO, FOLKS, the weirdest thing about this picture is not the bizarre

The weirdest thing about this picture is the Cowichan scrum ha|f,
who's holding the ball and waiting for the scrum to form. We don't
know how he does it either, but then the ref didn't notice those three

UBC swim coach Jack Kelso predicted last
week his team would "get killed" by Simon
Fraser University.
Friday night he was proven half right.
The SFU men's team thrashed UBC as expected, winning the dual meet 94-18 but the
UBC women scored a surprising 68-61 upset
over Simon Fraser in a meet at the UBC
aquatic centre.
The women won the meet on the last event

Overtime sinks 'Birds again
By BARRY McKAY
"Overtimes are hard to lose and nice to
win," sighed Thunderbird basketball coach
Peter Mullins.
Sometime this season, Mullins would like
to be on the nice end of an overtime.
Friday night the 'Birds put up a good
fight but lost 81-75 in overtime to the third-
ranked University of Victoria Vikings
before an appreciative crowd of more than
300.
It was the third time this year UBC has
lost in overtime to a nationally ranked
team. The 'Birds had previously taken
number one ranked University of Winnipeg
to overtime twice, and lost both times.
The Vikings, led by the shooting of Billy
Loos, held a 39-28 lead at half time. The
'Birds relied on some hot shooting by
guards Brad Findlay and John Stark to stay
close.
In the second half UBC played a strong
defence and received strong performances
from Findlay and Rob Cholyk to close the
gap. With 40 seconds remaining, Findlay
scored to cut the Vikings' lead to one point
and the 'Birds' full court press then forced
a Victoria turnover.

UBC played for the last shot and worked
the ball into back-up centre John
Crookewit, who was fouled with two
seconds remaining. Crookewit tied the
game with his first shot but bounced the second off the rim, sending the game into
overtime.
In the overtime period the Vikings
jumped out to a seven point lead and held
on to win 81-75. Findlay was the game's
high scorer with 25 points.
Saturday night 'Birds centre Bob Forsyth

Is confusion a waste of our time?
Judging from all the publicity
I've suddenly been acquiring, there
seems to be some confusion on the
part of some student representative
assembly members as to exactly
what was being discussed at the
Jan. 9 meeting. I offer my apologies, but I was unaware of the con
fusion at the time. The discussion
seemed centred on the task force
and money wasn't mentioned until
the very end.
Anyway, here's the situation:
. . . There are two $10,000 figures
floating around. The first is the
equipment   replacement   (you   re-
Be aware of the truth
We, the undersigned mechanical engineering students would like to
correct the erroneous statements made in the editorial and the front
page story SAC Denies Funds For Festival in the Jan. 17 issue of The
Ubyssey.
In a typical display of The Ubyssey's editorial incompetence, the authors failed to check out their facts. Anyone who reads the campus
paper knows that The Ubyssey staff has no intention of reporting the
news and is only concerned with sensationalism.
For the record: On Monday, Jan. 14, the mechanical engineering club
received $1,000 to send 64 students on a field trip to Houston, Texas.
This in effect is a grant of $15.63 per student, not $500 per student as thei
article and editorial stated. The grant covers only three per cent of our
total cost.
Unfortunately many people who read the erroneous remarks made by
The Ubyssey staff will never be aware of the truth.
Russ Kinghorn
and 51 others
member the tape recorders, etc?).
We talked about it for an hour and
a half at the Dec. 5 meeting. (Minutes no. 4 and no. 5.) Afte>- the expenditure was approved, that
money was spent.
The second $10,000 mentioned in
the student administrative commission is completely separate. When
CITR Was talking to SAC at its
Dec. 10 meeting, this figure was
mentioned as a rough, ball-park
figure for the entire low power FM
proposal. After all, isn't that what
the task force is looking into. . . .?
I hope this clears up any further
confusion. I would also like to reiterate something I said when I first
took this job. I run an open and
honest relationship between SAC
and SRA. Please ... if you don't
understand or you want to know
something, COME and ASK ME."
I'm more than happy to explain.
Having The Ubyssey hash this out
for us is a useless waste of our time.

Well, tonight, instead of hitting
those incredibly boring required
readings that your prof wrote, or
writing home, or fighting with someone, or feeling depressed, or
buying groceries, or having an
enema, or listening to politicians
(same thing), why don't you just
take one quick little peek outside?
Please? It's worth the effort.
You know, I tell'ya, it's just like a

Yes kids, Mother Nature's son,
our own darling seal-eyed Paul McCartney is this very moment
languishing in a Japanese jail cell
for doing nothing so awful as
smoking a little of the old Mother
Mary. What goes on, we hear you
say. And thus in an effort to gain
support for the boss bassist, the
Billy Shears Gardening Association
is holding a smoke-in benefit down
at the end of the long and winding
road at 4180 Crown Crescent
yesterday and today. So be there or
be square, cause he's in the stir for

God gets down
Ever wonder how those old-time
jazz musicians managed to stay up
till five o'clock in the morning every
night playing their wild and soulful
music? Drugs? No, don't be obnoxious. Junk food? Only if they were
performing in Pittsburgh, and
believe me, that didn't happen too
often.
So what was it that enabled
those high-flying guys to soar like
Bird and bop with Bix all night
long?
Soul, that's what, and that's why
the festival of religion and the arts is
presenting a talk at noon in the
SUB art gallery entitled "Jazz and
Spirituality". But remember, it
don't mean a thing if it ain't got that
swing.

Pearse calls fer residence renovations
From page 1
of all kinds," says Pearse, currently
on leave from teaching duties for a
United Nations research project.
"Research doesn't bear directly on
all students, but hundreds are
employed under research programs,
especially graduates."
Pearse acknowledges the concern
of many students and the public
that they have not received proper
consultation about UBC's soon-to-
be research park. "I'm very much
in favor of public discussion on important issues," he says.
As an MP, Pearse says he would
closely examine current housing
provisions in the Canada Mortgage
and Housing Corporation system
which are crucial in developing student residences. There have been
some changes made to policies on
"dormitory type" residences, he
says, but adds:
"I want to see a rationalization
of changes to enable, particularly at
UBC, needed renovations to student residences."
Pearse says he is proud of the
"great university building" done by
Liberals and the party's responsiveness to social change. The Liberals
are responsible for income support
programs for "needy and disabled"
people, guaranteed income policies,
Canada Pension plan and Medicare, he says.
"It would certainly be unlikely
the Conservatives would have done
those things," says Pearse. "People
often criticize the Liberals for picking up good NDP policies. I don't
see what's wrong with that."

The Liberal government has been
enforcing rules against discrimination and in 1975 declared International Women's Year which provided extensive publicity on women's
issues, says Pearse.
A federal government can certainly do its part to spread information, awareness and education on
women's affairs, he says.
"I think we're making some progress in it. I'm not so sure it's something governments can impose by
force. Women who re-enter the
work force have to cut in at the bottom again. It's not as if they've
been feeding up the ladder like career men."
While working on the Economic
Council of Canada, Pearse says he
thoroughly studied income support
for older citizens and special problems facing women. He recognizes a
problem in the treatment of single
pensioners, most often women, as
covered by Canada's current pension system. Pearse has made a rec
ommendation to investigate the
situation.
A 47-year-old who tried unsuccessfully for the Quadra nomination in 1974, Pearse says he thinks it
would be exciting to work as an MP
on national resources and energy
issues and Canada's constitutional
structure.
"My main interest is in the welfare of individuals," he said Friday
at his nomination meeting. "The
government has a role only to make
the system' work better to improve
our quality of life.
"That's why I'm a Liberal."
Pearse says his frustration with
the bungling incompetence of Joe
Clark's Conservative government is
one reason why he decided to run as
a federal candidate in the upcoming
election. Conservative finance minister John Crosbie's proposed budget, which caused a non-confidence
vote in December and toppled the
government, "shafted" poor people who spend more money on gas
and transportation, says Pearse.
"I couldn't live with that kind of
regressive action," he says. "They
(the Conservatives) are so insensitive to the needs of people who are
the most disadvantaged."
"The budget's a tax ripoff. It's
not surprising. John Crosbie's a
wealthy guy — he owns about one-
third of Newfoundland."
A member of the Economic
Council of Canada, Pearse says he
thinks the NDP party uses "pernicious approaches" to Canada's economic affairs.
"The trouble with the NDP, it's
so dogmatic," he says. "They seem
to want to solve international affairs by regulation and bureaucracy. As soon as a problem arises,
the NDP will immediately try to
dream up some restrictions."
A "typical" NDP response to a
troubled industry is to put up a tariff to prevent competition from imports, says Pearse. This locks in declining industries and contravenes
the Liberal party "consistent tenet"
of free trade, he says.
"It prejudices the welfare of the
consumers," says Pearse. "It may
protect the workers temporarily,
but it is detrimental to the welfare
of the country."
The welfare of Canada's national
unity is a matter largely downplayed by the three leading political parties, says Pearse, but adds that he is
not hesitant to raise the issue. Voters in Vancouver-Quadra are sensitive to the future of Canada, he
adds.
He says he thinks Vancouver-
Quadra "needs a more capable and
energetic MP" and has more enlightened and concerned voters than
most other ridings in B.C.
Pearse was nominated without
opposition Friday before 1,500 followers at Vancouver's Hellenic
Community Centre, 4500 Arbutus.
At the meeting, opposition leader
Pierre Trudeau called Pearse "an
incredibly strong addition to the
Liberal team."

Tuesday, January 22,1980
Ihe Troll says Rhinos also advocate open range space to deal
with the upcoming Quebec referendum. "No one should fear the
federalists or the separatists," he
says.
And Rhinos want native peoples
to have their land claims settled in a
just and equitable way. "We'll
return all land to its original
owners. We won't be settling any
rights until we settle the native land
claims."
Women will also benefit from a
Rhino government with free
"menstrual   cycle   supplies"   and
By JULIE WHEELWRIGHT
What can you say about Canada's fourth largest party, a
party that wants to sell Petrocan at the grocer's and knock
down the Rockies for the sake of national unity?
They just might have the answers, but unlike all other
politicians, they don't want your vote.
The Rhinoceros Party is breeding
well in Canada's frosty climate and
B.C. has seen its Rhino population
soar from one candidate in the May
22 federal election to a herd of nine
this time around.
Though everyone in Canada is
automatically a member of our nation's only animal party, there are
four criteria for anyone wanting to
become a Rhinoceros candidate.
Rhino candidates must have both
feet on the ground, be in favor of
world peace, against nuclear power
and for the liberation — not
decriminalisation — of marijuana.
Vancouver boasts five Rhino candidates as well as the only Rhino
veteran of the May 22 election west
of Toronto.
Richard the Troll, running in
Capilano, says the growing
popularity of the party can be attributed to success and success to
the party's popularity.
The Troll, otherwise known as
Richard Schaller, a 35-year-old
hash pipe maker, will call for a recount if he wins and is running to
"play the game."
"It will be interesting if we got a
couple of Rhinos elected and even
more interesting if we won," says
the Troll.
The party's platform, though it is
concerned with issues such as native
land claims, women's rights and national unity is really just tongue-in-
cheek grooves and wooden two by
fours.
The Rhino candidates who ran in
the last election promised to sell
Petrocan at the local grocer's and
this time they also promise to implement a share giveaway scheme.
Five free shares of the
bureaucracy, armed forces and the
RCMP will be given to every
citizen. And if citizens fail to pick
up their shares, the monies will be
deducted from the budgets of the
respective institutions, says the
Troll.
Though the Troll says he's not
too well informed about student
issues, he realizes the government
has become very "stingy" about
financing post-secondary institutions.
"I think education should be a
higher priority with the government. There's not much incentive
for young people to do anything.
"When we learn the earth is not
flat and the sun doesn't set and the
earth is going through a revolution
then perhaps we will have some sort
of revolution."
Like most of the politicians running for office, the Troll and his
fellow Rhinos have a foolproof
plan for stimulating the economy.
"We'd increase everyone's
chances of success by 300 per cent
in our first year of office. We'd
drop the price of Loto-Canada
tickets to 33 cents per ticket and
there would be more money for
sports, prizes and boogies," he
says.
Everyone with a job would be
given a holiday and would start collecting   unemployment   insurance,        "I'd
making   the   nation    equal    in    power,
economic terms. energy.'
end and the Rhinos will get on top
of the issue, literally, he said.
Since education is always a concern to the electorate, Longworth
says students will be given whatever
they need to learn whatever they
want. "If not paid, students should
have all the comforts of home while
they're there."
And on the issue of creature comforts Longworth says he backs his
party's position on the liberalisation of cannibis.
"I think there should be a little
pot in every chicken. How can you
have a party without marijuana?"
And because national unity is a
must, Quebec will be swapped for
Maui. With that arrangement,
"we'll get more Quebecers • into
B.C. and more B.C.'s into
Quebec," says Longworth.
The  Rockies have always been
his party as an alternative to anarr
chy, but in his slogan is: "If you're
not going to vote, vote Rhino".
"I see myself as the only way to
go; we've tried everything else.
Because we're the Rhinos why vote
for anyone else? You've seen what
they can do — nothing."
And as his first act of parliament,
the big game hunter by occupation
will recite the soliloquoy from
Hamlet: "To be or not to be rhino,
that is the question."
The Rhinos cover all bases. They
look to the future with their grandiose schemes and they also cover
history. Just ask John "eh?"
McDonald, running in Vancouver-
Quadra.
McDonald, who was nominated
last Friday in the Pit, says his relationship to his namesake is questionable. "I may or may not be the

K
birth control pills. "We're going
for complete equality all across the
board and total unemployment,"
says the Troll.
The incredibility department will
be put in charge of looking into the
energy crisis while they coordinate
reality.
Though Schaller says he's running to play the game, Rhino candidate Wavy Davy Longworth is a
veteran of politics, saying he ran as
a Vancouver mayoral candidate in
1970 and says Rhino is the only way
to go.
Longworth, running in
Vancouver-Centre, says he's a
Rhino candidate because he doesn't
want to get involved in politics. "I
don't know if I'm going to win but I
always like to back the right horse,
or Rhino in this case."
Like the Troll, Wavy Davy says
he will call for a recount if he wins
and feels he has a chance in the upcoming election; he may just be the
dark Rhino in the nation's tightest
riding battle.
Longworth says there are no
issues in this election according to
the other candidates, but he will put
all his energies into making safe
energy sources part of the Canadian
lifestyle.
like   to   see   more   horse
anything   but   nuclear
' Petrocan will be stood on
cited as one of the reasons for our
province's isolationist attitudes and
Longworth wants to change that by
having them knocked down. This
project and others will also provide
stimulation for our economy, he
says.
"We're going to build a railway
to Tokyo. There'll be lots of work.
We're thinking of firing everybody
and starting them off with the same
welfare cheque."
Recently the Quebec Rhinos
declared war on Belgium because of
an episode in the Tin tin cartoon
strip drawn by a Belgian artist. Tin-
tin blew up a rhinoceros with a stick
of dynamite.
Going to war will give the Canadian armed forces something to do
and will help them get over their
identity crisis they've been suffering
from since their amalgamation, says
Longworth.
The economy will be revived
when the Rhinos start printing their
own money and Longworth says he
envisions needy people planting
plots of pot victory gardens and
selling it at its street value.
The Rhino government will take
care of everyone's wants, but will
take away their rights until the Indians get theirs back. "We should
respect them enough to ask them if
we can stay."
Longworth says he does not see
illegitimate great grandson of John
A."
But McDonald says in the spirit
of his father of confederation he
wants to return railway building as
the national wet dream, corruption
to the railways and gin to the House
of Commons.
The alchemy 7 student says he
would also like to see his picture on
the one dollar bill and the Queen's
on the twenty, and has aspirations
of fathering as many countries as
possible.
Hangovers at UBC will become a
thing of the past as McDonald says
he will open the Pit at 8 or 9 a.m.,
eliminating the problem of the
heavy head and queasy stomach.
UBC engineers will be in for a
rude awakening if they find a Rhino
in the seat of power. John "eh?"
says he will end the controversy
over the annual Lady Godiva ride
by having the woman on horseback
clothed and the engineers travelling
beside her in the buff.
And under McDonald's Rhino
government, students will be paid
to go to university.
"Rather than student loans there
should be direct monthly grants. If
a student manages to put in seven
years without graduating, they
should get a raise. I'd thought of it
as a method of correcting the class
divisions."
McDonald says "the rich kids"
would not take such a boring and
low paying job and student accessibility will be further improved
with the construction of more four-
lane highways.
The university, which will receive
federal funds for the proposed
research park, will take on a different form, McDonald promises.
Since "parks are for kids
anyways," teeter totters, swings,
slides and other necessary equipment for children will be erected, he
says.
But McDonald says he is also
concerned about events outside the
campus and has great plans for
Petrocan. It will remain in its present state for the next 10 years and
then a royal commission will be
struck to investigate the possibility
of a giveaway scheme.
The commission will decide, if
necessary, to give the Canadian
government to the citizens of
Canada through the distribution of
private shares or an open sale to
private interests, McDonald says.
And the situation in Afghanistan
brings to mind his own plan for
world peace.
"All wars would be decided by
each country choosing up to 40,000
bridge foursomes to play teams of
four duplicate tournaments for 10
cents a point until one country or
another withdrawals for lack of
funds."
McDonald says his other areas of
concern include the legalisation of
prostitution in Vancouver;
"freedom to be fucked is a basic
human right." In dealing with
foreign affairs McDonald says,
"I'd like to have as many as possible, especially French perfume
manufacturers' daughters."
The armed forces will be reformed and will become a troop of
jesters and gnomes who tour the
country putting on shows for
children, says McDonald who borrowed the idea from the Dutch
Gnome party who are an actual
body in Holland and have won civic
elections.
McDonald is the first Rhino candidate ever in Vancouver-Quadra.
Albert the Cad also is debuting, but
in Surrey-White Rock.
The Cad's official agent says his
candidate is running to put the fun
back   into   elections,   though   he
doesn't expect to win.
Besides being the inventor of the
plan to sell Petrocan at your local
grocers, the Cad wants to import
Rhinos to the Tar Sands area in
Alberta to make petroleum jelly
and methane gas, says agent Doug
Wiebe.
And Alberta is now sprouting
Rhino candidates for the upcoming
election with four in Calgary, four
in Edmonton and one in Peace
River.
An expected five candidates will
run in Manitoba, with two more vying for a seat in Saskatchewan.
The party president is a
rhinoceros at a Granby Que., zoo.
Baby Cornelius is said to be a
source of inspiration to the party
which started in 1964 in Montreal.
And remember, the Rhinos outdid the two communist parties of
Canada in the last election and currently have official party status with
more candidates than the Social
Credit party.
