Filmsoc petitions for fee fight vote
Members of the UBC film society, disgusted by negotiations with
the Alma Mater Society executive,
have circulated a petition to force a
referendum over the division of
revenue from the SUBfilms series of
The petition, signed by 600 people, asks that the current $1.50 admission price to SUBfilms be reduced to $1 and that the current 50-50
profit sharing arrangement be
changed so that 25 per cent of the
net revenue goes to the AMS and 75
per cent to filmsoc.
In July, filmsoc presented a
budget to the budget committee
which raised the price of SUBfilms
to $1.50 per person.
"Obviously they didn't have an
honest intent when they gave the
budget to us," AMS finance director Jane Loftus said Monday.
"They set the price, not the AMS.
We didn't leave them a lot of alternatives, but we did leave a few."
"If it goes to referendum that's
fine, if that's what students want,
Loftus said. "Those profits (from
SUBfilms) will be chanelled back
into the club instead of being used
for services."
Filmsoc acting chair Dusan
Milatovic said the club members expect the referendum to pass.
"We're confident students feel the
same way we do about this," he added.
"We think the AMS is supposed
to represent the wishes of students.
We find it absurd that the 30,000
people who come to SUBfilms over
a year would not prefer a lower
price," he said.
The two sides disagree over the
profit sharing arrangement. "The
problem is that the AMS is getting a
50-50 split of profits from SUBfilms," Milatovic said.
"The philosophy behind the
50-50 split was sound, that's why
we didn't want to change (the agreement)," Loftus said. The agreement, if it stands, will bring the
AMS and filmsoc $18,000 to be
shared equally.
"The original idea behind the
profit sharing agreement was that
since they (filmsoc) were going to
have exclusive use of the (SUB)
auditorium just about every night
of the week, and since all students
paid for that area, some of the proceeds should be redistributed by the
AMS to other AMS groups," said
former AMS vice president Peter
Mitchell, Loftus and the budget
committee spent much of the summer negotiating with filmsoc. Both
Loftus and Mitchell said there were
other alternatives for the filmsoc
members to take.
Filmsoc could have opted for a
straight rental charge for SUB
auditorium, or a budget that allowed a $1 SUBfilms admission charge,
but cut back in some areas such as
its year-end banquet, Mitchell said.
"We offered them an offer of a
rental charge at about a third of the
commercial rate," Mitchell said.
Loftus said the budget committee
felt the rental scheme was the best
idea for everyone.
Filmsoc members are sceptical.
"Originally we would have preferred a flat rate," Milatovic said.
"The problem is, then the AMS can
raise the rate arbitrarily."
"That has never happened,"
Loftus said. "We rent out SUB as a
business venture. The probability of
(the student administrative commission) ever arbitrarily increasing the
rental rates is zero."
Loftus said an increase in SUBfilms prices is inevitable.
Buses to UBC are overcrowded,
and some city buses should not even
be on the roadsPa Greater Vancouver Regional District spokesperson said Monday.
"The bus sytem is hopelessly congested; all available buses are now
being put on the road even though
some are in bad condition and
shouldn't even be used," said Bud
However there is no relief in sight
for UBC communiters until next
year, he added.
Six million more passengers rode
during the year ending March 31,
1981, than the previous year, according to the GVRD.
Increased ridership is a continuing trend, said Ken Denike, UBC
traffic and parking committee
chair. He said he could not predict
any improvement in the situation
until the trolley bus line was extended to UBC or the GVRD purchased
new buses.
Nothing can be done until 250
new Flyer and GM buses arrive next
year, Elsie said.

items, an extension of existing

SFU deficit
Canadian University Press
A 17 per cent salary increase requested by Simon Fraser University
faculty could triple the university's
projected deficit this year.
The increase, if granted, could increase SFU's deficit from $450,000
to $1.5 million, SFU administration
president George Pedersen said last
It is no coincidence that the request parallels the 18 per cent increase recently awarded to UBC
UBC's settlement puts SFU instructors in a dilemma said Gene
Bridwell, faculty association president and negotiations. "Who
wouldn't like to get that kind of
money?" he said. "But it poses
other problems that we are going to
have to face soon.
"SFU will have to appeal to the
government for more money or
look at their own surpluses,"
Bridwell added.
Faculty have been in arbitration
since wage negotiations stalled in
June, when the SFU administration
offered a 10 per cent increase. The

Washington students frozen out of university
Post-secondary education is on
the brink of collapse in
Washington state because of
severe funding cutbacks, a
University of Washington student
finance critic charged Monday.
"Now the whole system is
threatened. The current crisis is
caused by the state legislature.
They believe it (post-secondary
education) is a privilege not a
right," said Danny Kadden, a
Washington Public Interest
Research Group staff person and
finance counsellor.
WashPIRG staff person
l Richard Brender said the universi
ty is facing an overall operating
budget cut of 10 to 20 per cent.
"It's going to be really difficult
to do anything right now because
the state legislature doesn't have
the money," he said.
In a recent interview with the
university's student newspaper,
The Daily, administration president William Gerberding outlined
the following spending cuts:
• as many as 259 faculty
members will lose their Jobs this
• 3,500 fewer .-students will be
permitted to enrol, (the University
of Washington is currently the
largest   university   on   the   west
coast,   with   more   than   37,000
• 80 sections of classes have
been cut;
• admissions to most schools
on campus have been frozen;
• admission is closed for
winter and spring quarter classes.
Kadden said tuition fees have
risen 80 per cent since last year for
both in and out of state students.
Canadians at the University of
Washington saw their fees jump
this year from an annual $2,400 to
The fees will jump another 20
per cent in 1982-83, he added.
"The Republicans in the state
legislature were interested in increasing it 100 per cent over one
"It's bad all over the country."
Brender said that for students
needing financial aid the situation
is also very tight.
"It's like a lot of the same programs exist but the grants now
seem only available to those in a
very needy category," he said.
Added Kadden: "The student
has to show need to the government to get the loan. This is the
new trend toward student finance
in the state, away from grants."
Financial administration is also
being hit hard, he said. The finan
cial aid office currently has only
one staff person with one
telephone to answer inquiries
from more than 37,000 students,
he added.
"It's sort of like a double
whammy," said Kadden, adding
that as tuition fees skyrocket and
inflation increases there are fewer
loans and grants to help students
cope with the increased financial
"Even before Reagan took office there were state sessions here
where budget cutting in post-
secondary education was going on
like mad." Page 2

SFU request rivals UBC's
From page 1
last offer of 12 per cent, lower than
the inflation rate, was presented to
the faculty Sept. 15.
A binding decision by arbitrator
Irwin Nathason is expected today.
Nathason agreed to consider
UBC's 18 per cent increase when
making his decision, Bridwell said.
SFU arts dean Bob Brown said he
anticipated the arbitrator would
give the faculty a higher increase
than the administration's 12 per
cent offer, following the UBC example.
"The administration doesn't
begrudge the faculty that money.
We think they deserve it," Brown
"But we don't know where we're
going to get it. If we have a 15 per
cent salary increase the university
will have a budget deficit of more
than $1 million."
The SFU board of governors met
with the Universities Council of
B.C. Sept. 22 to present the 1982-83
budget and discuss the current
$450,000 deficit.
Pedersen said he did not expect
to get the funding requested from
the UCBC, and that the university
is currently beginning talks aimed at
cutting costs.
By law, B.C. universities are not
allowed to run a deficit, but UBC is
currently predicting a $8.5 million

Kaplan burns 800,
TORONTO (CUP) — Many of
the RCMP's 800,000 files on Canadians concerning "personal
vulnerabilities" will soon be
destroyed, according to solicitor
general Robert Kaplan.
Kaplan told a packed moot court
at the University of Toronto faculty
of law Sept. 23 that the government
possesses a file on one out of every
10 Canadian adults.
"I don't think Canadians agree
with that, and I think they're
right", he said.
Kaplan, the cabinet minister
responsible for the RCMP, said he
receives applications for "the ex
traordinary authority to encroach
on somebody's privacy," on an
average of one each day. Of these,
the vast majority are "legitimate,"
he said. And "99 per cent do not involve Canadians."
The solicitor general stressed the
importance of drawing "a very
thick line between democratic dissent and non-democratic dissent.
He attributed past violations of civil
liberties, particularly regarding
democratic separatist activities in
Quebec, to "a lack of understanding by Canadians generally about
separatism, and also failure to have
adequate control of the police."
Kaplan said the 800,000 files now
existing are not stored in a computer bank, and their confidentiality would be protected by the access
to information bill introduced by
cabinet minister Francis Fox six
months ago, which states there
must be good cause to open a file.
The powers given Canadian
security service operatives remain
justifiable, Kaplan said. "Where it
is necessary and reasonable, they do
have the authority to do things
other citizens can not do. They have
not only the authority but the duty
to behave in this fashion."
Kaplan added the government is
hesitant to enshrine security service
prerogatives in legislation. "If we
were to replace government with
statute you would be much closer to
a police state," he said. "I think it
would be a mistake to relieve them
of their judgement."
Although the Liberal government
has accepted the McDonald commission's recommendation that a
new security service be created independent of the RCMP, Kaplan
felt it had problems. He said one
advantage of the old structure was
that it encouraged non-partisanship
by the security service. "In fact, it

Liberai's constitution battle just begun
Justice minister Jean Chretien
may be happy about Monday's
supreme court decision but among
UBC faculty and students opinions
about the constitution and its future
varied greatly.
The battle over the Canadian
constitution is not over yet, a UBC
law professor said Monday. "The
game's going into overtime," said
Bill Black.
Yesterday the supreme court ruled that tradition and convention are
an important part of constitutional
amendment, but that the federal
government's constitutional proposals were nevertheless legal.
"Many parts of the constitution
are built on conventions," said
Black and the supreme court's decision may be interpreted as strong
criticism of the federal government.
The important constitutional
issue is how the court defines "convention?' he said. Some conventions are more forceful than others
and the current question is what the
supreme court judges actually said
about the force of a constitutional
convention, he said.
One of prime minister Pierre
Trudeau's options now is to continue with his repatriation plans as
scheduled, "but then the real ques
tion is whether the British parliament will pass it."
Economics professor Anthony
Scott said Monday he would not be
surprised if Trudeau took the strictly legal route, which carries the support of the supreme court decision.
"Once the constitution is
repatriated it is important that
Canada get on with amending it,"
Scott said. The best method of
amendment would be a constituent
assembly, which could gain public
support and allow for easier agreement between various provincial
governments, he added.

Resignation brash says Hollis
The mass resignation of the student accessibility committee last
week was a brash and unprovoked
action, James Hollis, Alma Mater
Society external affairs officer,
claimed Monday.
Hollis denied that committee
members were forced to resign
because they were being rendered
useless by student council. Hollis
said the committee was trying to exert too much power.
The communication gap between the committee and student
council contributed to their resignation, Hollis added. "They are the
most inaccessible accessibility committee I have ever seen," he said.
"We need another committee, it
is an undeniable necessity," Hollis
No steps have been taken to form
another accessibility committee.
Hollis said that communication
must improve when the next committee is formed. "We will need an

Kaplan suggested that an auditor
general be appointed to provide
"insurance from abuse" in the new
government agency. He agreed with
the McDonald commission recommendations that the government
seek more sophisticated staff for
the new security agency.
He agreed it would be impossible
for the new service to start from
scratch, and that employment of
the same people might lead to the
same problems.
Science sud
sales sign
of solvency
The science undergraduate society has a handle on a problem the
Alma Mater Society cannot solve.
"Response has been too good,"
SUS president president Dave
Frank said in referring to a "get involved" campaign put on during
registration week. About 2,900
science students expressed interest
in getting involved in SUS activities
ranging from sports teams to
department clubs.
Frank and the SUS executive
have worked the entire summer to
revitalize a society that has been
dormant for several years. "We
wanted to change the image of
science and get people involved so
that they could meet more people."
Frank listed the accomplishments
of the SUS in the last several weeks:
• 25-30 new intramural science
teams are competing in all
• more beer sold in the SUS beer
garden than in the last seven years
• $5,000 worth of textbooks
were sold at the SUS book sale;
• a science student directory will
be ready in mid-October;
• three to five new department
clubs were initiated.
"Our goal is to promote more
unity within the faculty of science
and more unity within the individual departments." To accomplish this Frank is working to
initiate a club in every department
of the faculty.
"The only requirement to begin a
club is enthusiasm. The SUS will
support new clubs as much as possible and I encourage interested
students to drop by our offices (in
the north east corner of Bio science)
and find out how."
Frank was at the AMs leadership
conference held this weekend at
Camp Elphinstone. The conference
brought together 75 student leaders
from all the AMS campus organizations.
The leaders attended workshops
on different aspects of leadership
such as public speaking chairmanship, motivation and delegation. In
addition, the AMS executive put on
an informational skit about AMS
activities and a panel discussion
about campus issues.
Some student leaders felt that the
presence of 25 engineers from nine
engineering clubs had a very
negative effect on the conference,
which about 70 students attended.
A representative from the faculty of
social work said she was considering
returning home after riding up on
the bus with the gears.
Conference committee member
Frances Carey said the committee
was obligated to have so large a
representation of engineers at the
conference because of the many
engineering clubs. Page 4

Slogans can be dangerous.
The legislators in Washington
state have adopted this slogan
which is threatening the very existence of post-secondary education there.
The legislators do not seem proud of the fact that they have more

machetes in hand they have

Once is not enough.
No, The Ubyssey had to go to a Student Leadership conference twice in
four years before the staff was convinced there is no point in doing so.
We have nothing against the concept of orienting students to the
bewildering zoo that is UBC, but the present format and concept of the
leadership retreats, we feel, is not in the best interests of the majority of
Leaders are not needed — what is needed is a pool of informed people,
trained and willing to work with others to achieve a common goal. On-
campus orientation, accessible to all students, is the answer, not faraway
retreats for what can only be a select group of people, however sincere the
organizers' intentions are.
Maybe there were some students who got more out of the leadership
retreat than a hangover and a grass skirt. We hope so. But unless a change
is forthcoming, don't expect to see The Ubyssey jaunting up to Camp
Elphinstone next time with the "student leaders."
We won't be fooled again.

And the knife is working its way
in other places. "It's bad all around
the country," says Danny Kadden
of the Washington Public Interest
Research Group.
According to another Wash PIRG
member even pressuring the
legislators at the state level may be
ineffective because the money
simply isn't there.
The university must chop 10 to 20
per cent of its total operating
budget says Richard Brender. In a
time of double digit inflation, the
state legislators have condemned
the university to poverty.
Universities are not cheap. They
are not frills and luxuries that can be
trimmed in times of financial trouble. If education is cut the class
divisions in our North American
society can only widen as it
becomes a privilege for those few
with the money and connections to
get into a post-secondary institution.
Consequently only those who
come from a privileged
background will be our social
critics. The inequalities will sharpen
as those who might learn to articulate injustice in an academic setting are silenced forever.
The scenario played before our
eyes in the United States could be
the beginning of our nightmare as
the Liberal government contemplates cutting the Established
Programs Financing to the tune of
$7 billion.
Liberals justify this abomination
with their own slogan, "it's time to
tighten our belts."
And slogans can be dangerous.
Fear and loathing in Howe Sound
It was time to meet the clean,
shiny new leaders of tomorrow.
With several of the Alma Mater
Society's best and brightest working
on it for close to a year and the
budget committee suddenly willing
to loosen its purse strings, another
AMS leadership conference was
ready to bestow wisdom on hopeful
student hacks, as well as two
reporters from The Ubyssey.
The Ubyssey, after sending
delegates to two conferences in the
last five years, began declining the
annual invitation in 1978, claiming
it had given up in disgust. For two
years the AMS badgered the
newspaper staff with what it believed to be answers to every argument.
The administration was frank
and open at conferences and subjected to tough questioning, they
said. The admin flacks didn't run
things and the student hacks didn't
stand around in awe.
The conference contained a
cross-section of the campus and no
one was specifically excluded.
Every major problem facing
students and the AMS was discussed with equal depth and
seriousness. Real work was accomplished that was invaluable to
everyone. It was an experience
every student should undergo, even
if almost all of them couldn't.
The Ubyssey was finally persuaded. Never doing anything in half
measures, it was to supply a further
two representatives for the Saturday evening question and answer
period. Now was the time for its
lective mind to be changed.
Opting for the passive approach
to this impending alteration of
thought, I gave my brain a pre-rinse
at the free beer and wine bash in the
office on Friday before I left. By
Saturday night I had the grey matter well soaked, but it still wouldn't
First, the basic setup:
At the beginning of the term,
clubs, service organizations and
undergraduate societies are asked to
send delegates along with members
of student council and the executive
to a YMCA summer camp on the
Sechelt Peninsula for a weekend of
education and orientation.
The delegates are chosen for their
qualities as leaders, either present
or potential. The vast majority are
on the executives of the organizations they represent.
Other than partying and a morning session on the AMS, the
weekend is advertised as much more
than mere orientation. In reading
the invitation (the event is not
publicly advertised) addressed
"Dear student leader," or talking
to the organizers, one is left without
any doubt that some certain people
are going to be groomed for some
specific purpose. The conference is
not for everyone, naturally.
It must be added the organizers
and participants adamantly affirm
the conference is not elitist in any
The promise of the conference
was one of endless valuable information, infectuous enthusiasm and
intelligent action.
Surely there should be plenty to
report. But the plentiful memories
my mind and notes yield up are of
trivia, cheap symbols and moments
of surreal horror amid the peaceful
splendor of Howe Sound.
Familiar cliches led the trivia
parade. There was the one immovable drunk stretched out in the
washroom the first night. There was
the one greybeard administrator in
the business suit who sidled up to
marijuana smokers to discreetly ask
for a toke. There were cheeky collegiate pranksters who administered
ritual tankings or stole fuses from
cabins to deprive them of lights and
hot water.
Best new twist on an old cliche
was the after dinner bun fight that
was vetoed by the organizers, causing the hopeful bread warriors to
approach members of The Ubyssey
to ask that the fight not be written
about should it happen. After this
promise was gladly given, the fight
was vetoed again by the nervous
symbols before I left. The much
vaunted openness and frankness of
the administration was not to be
tested because no decision-making
members of that august body were
to participate at all.
The prime reason for The
Ubyssey's participation, to record
the tough questioning and no
nonsense answers of administration
vice presidents or Doug Kenny
himself, and perhaps get in a few
questions of its own, was gone.
The stout-hearted organizers saw

The most tasteless triviality was

period in blackface drag in honor of
Hawaiian Night, with Hawaiian
Night itself coming in a close second.
I first started thinking of cheap
no problem. The important thing is
to orient people and get them communicating, it was said many times.
Representatives of the administration were presumably unnecessary
because they could tell the future
leaders little or nothing about the
university, nor was communication
between them and the AMS really
The next cheap symbol is more
down to earth. It happened the
toilet on the bus was out of order
and I, a great believer in omens,
was on guard. I began to wonder
whether it meant a sacrifice of the
basics for the better and higher or
simply that I would spend the
weekend with my legs crossed
wishing I were somewhere else.
The first session after arriving at
Camp Elphinstone left a different
strange taste in my mouth.
Delegates filled out a ques-
tionaire of the type given out in
junior secondary guidance classes,
circling Always, Frequently, Occasionally, Seldom or Never for such
statements as "I would get
swamped by details." The results
were tabulated on a simple chart.
The chart told the delegate
whether his or her 'leadership
behavior' tended toward either
Laissez-Faire Leadership — High
Morale or Autocratic Leadership —
High Productivity. I asked the
workshop leader to comment on the
connection between autocracy and
high productivity and was told I'd
"have the answer to that at the end
of the two days." The analogy with
Erhardt Seminar Training was chilling and I thought back to the omen
of the out of order toilet.
After some more exercises
designed to prove that leadership is
a quality most found in tough sons
of bitches who talk loudly, there
was a scavenger hunt. One group
managed better than the others at
amusing the judges with its antics
and was declared the winner.
Then more questionaires were
distributed, asking the delegates to
figure out who was the leader of
their group and why. I saw
members of the winning group
shrugging and tossing their sheets
back on the table without filling
them out.
I asked them why they were not

Come and be WUSC'd away
World University Services of
Canada is a part of an international
organization designed to promote
understanding and contact between
universities and students in developing and developed countries. In
keeping with these aims, WUSC
UBC has run several programs over
the past few years on campus and
plans to continue with more programs this year.
Last year the UBC WUSC club
raised funds to sponsor a refugee
student from Eritrea to come to
UBC to complete his education.
This year we will either try to sponsor another refugee student or raise
funds for a development project in
the Third World.
WUSC UBC also ran two successful film series last year focusing
on problems faced by developing
countries. This year another film
series will be run, beginning Oct. 7
with the film "When the People
Awake" about the situation in
Chile. All films will be shown in
Buchanan 205 at noon.
If you are interested in travelling
and Third World development,
then perhaps you would be interested in travelling and studying
in Costa Rica this summer with
WUSC.   For   the   past   30   years

This is not what I said. I will not
even grace such an idiotic fumble
with the term "mis-quote." I didn't

I did say was:

WUSC has held seminars in foreign
countries which enable Canadian
students to understand different
cultures and understand the problems facing other countries.
Recently these seminars have been
held in developing countries in

was a tremendous success where 30
students from across Canada got
the opportunity to learn from each
other and at the same time begin to
understand what is meant by "international development." Next

to be just as promising. Research
topics will include health services,

there was no leader; each had contributed and they had worked
together, they answered.
I asked if this might mean cooperation was a better approach to
group problem solving than leading
and following. A couple looked
doubtful but most said no, leadership was still the more valuable
principle. After all, that was what
they were there for.

Each group was told to form a
club and set out its purpose and
goals. The results were typically witty; a club to save whales in the
library pond, another with drinking
as a purpose and getting drunk as a
goal. Good natured hilarity followed each speaker.
One group, however, had set up a
hypothetical club more realistically,
with its membership to come from
students opposing tuition fees.

others, a member of the AMS executive gave it an acid tongue critique in the name of the seriousness
of the session.

Smoke and booze mar art
Approximately $14,000 of oil
paintings could be damaged by
smoke and spilled booze because
the Alma Mater Society art gallery
has been converted into a temporary lounge.
"It is not a good idea," said
James Caswell, fine arts department
head, when informed that the art
gallery in SUB is being used as a
music lounge in the evenings for a
five week period. "Smoke accumulates. Look at the curtains in
my home." He added that most art
galleries do not allow smoking.
Lynne Marriott, a graduate pharmacy student and past member of
the AMS art gallery committee, said
two years ago a painting had been
damaged during the annual tem
porary bar.
"Someone spilled a liqueur or
something on it and it had to be
cleaned," she said.
Former AMS vice president Peter
Mitchell denied that the paintings
were in danger. "It is not like the
Pit," he said. "Beer is not being
thrown around."
Mitchell added that $14,000 is
not a lot of money for oil paintings,
and the more valuable works in the
AMS collection are in storage.
Caswell, however, said any art is
"worth preserving if it's worth collecting."
Mitchell added that the paintings
were hung at eye level and they risked minimal damage from accidental
UBC enrolment takes a hike
Along with all the other increases
at UBC, there has also been one in
The current enrolment total
stands at 23,779, but associate registrar John Piercey expects late
registration to add about another
1,000 to the total.
Piercey said there is currently an
increase of about 500 students over
last year's figures.
"We are in the position I'd expected, with a slight increase in enrolment, with some variations in
programs," Piercey said. "The
mail strike didn't have any substantial, or even minimal, effect
upon registration."
New entrance requirements, approved by senate in 1977, also had
no effect on registration, he added.
(To enter UBC this year, students
from B.C.  secondary schools  re
quire Grade 11 French, or a foreign
language to the Grade 11 level.)
"Our eligibility figures didn't
show a great deal of variation from
last year," Piercey said. "The impact of the language requirement
was no impact.
"I have to believe secondary
school students were well-informed
of our requirements and they met
More people were denied admission for failure to meet the 2.5
grade point average than for missing basic course requirements, Piercey said.
"But that's what it is every
year," he added.
Last year 24,886 students were
officially enrolled at UBC. This
year's preliminary total will be released Sept. 30, and theofficial total for government statistics purposes will be the count as of Dec. 1.

The UBC RCMP detachment
gained an extra officer instead of
losing two, thanks to student and
administration intervention.
Sergeant Fred Hardy said the
protests were effective, adding that
now the 12 member team can meet
the campus' needs.
Last October the federal government threatened to cut back the
detachment during a campus crime
wave. The cutbacks would have
forced the UBC detachment to cut
its 4 to 7 a.m. campus patrol shift.
But protests to the provincial
government and RCMP from student council, administration president Doug Kenny and the UBC
board of governors stopped the
threat. Had the cuts taken place,
RCMP coverage of the UBC community would have sunk well below
acceptable levels, Kenny said at the
With the extra officer, the campus detachment is now in "pretty
fair shape," Hardy said. "But
please don't attempt to be complacent about our standing," he added.

questions about how to deal with
troublesome people who ask too
many questions or speak too often
in debate, he advised ruling them
out of order whenever possible.
If they persist, he said, take their
comment as a motion, ask for
seconders, then quickly move on
before the motion can be seconded
so that it can be ruled out of order.
The main idea seemed to be that the
chair did not so much keep order at
a meeting as attempt to direct
debate and influence the meeting
toward 'useful' ends.
As a fundamental democratic
principle was spiritually hamstrung,
I began to see what was meant by
autocratic leadership.
From the session on public speaking:
A speaker asked how many at the
conference were anti-union. More
than two thirds put up their hands.
A sprinkling of people admitted
they were pro-union.
A graphic example of the reasoning behind this attitude came up
later. A delegate asked whether it
was advisable to lower the level and
tone of a person's speaking style
when addressing an audience of
educational and intellectual inferiors, "like a labor meeting."
The answer, of course, is no, the
speaker answered. To use foul
language or act boisterious and
rowdy when addressing union
meetings and their ilk would only
cause the audience to lose respect
for the speaker even if they accepted it "among themselves." I
breathed a sigh of relief that the
AMS leaders of tomorrow had been
saved from being patronizing
By   the   time   of   the   question
period Saturday evening 1 had to
keep reminding myself that 1 had
not taken LSD for a long time and
could not possibly have eaten a bad
hit. The Ubyssey delegates had arrived for the promised tough, hardhitting forum on student issues and
found themselves in a circus.
The session had been deliberately
and faithfully fashioned after a
Chuck Barris game show, complete
with huge, gawky illegible placards
hung around the panelists' necks
and a comic gong for those who
spoke too long. As with many of
the weekend's event, the idea seemed to be to combat poor attention
spans with the tactics of a children's
birthday party.
There were judges armed with
marking cards that displayed the infinity sign, question marks or,
'B.S.' There were questions like
"Explain the theory of relativity."
The whales in the library pond were
trotted out again.
There were also more serious
questions, but most of those were
answered facetiously or with careful
obfuscation. The delegates, decked
out in loud shirts, mumus and grass
skirts for Hawaiian Night, grew
restive when panelists failed to exceed the one minute time limit.
"The gong. We want to hear the
gong," they chanted. Every now
and then it was rung to quiet them.
I began to think there was a plot
afoot. The conference committee
chair had manipulated poor unwitting students into creating an eerie
tableau. The twisted mind of a

The whole grotesque scene, I

ultrasophisticated clandestine society of perverse videophiles who

while drooling and staring at the

them lest he find out the truth
about student leaders.

leadership and the conference drew
applause. We had seen the natural
complement to leadership: the mob.
It was time to leave and to hell with
the fact the bar hadn't opened yet.
One last symbol, but this time
not cheap. While momentarily
escaping the droning boredom of
the Saturday afternoon sessions to
walk in the woods, I came across an
open air chapel.
All around a huge fir stump that
stood behind the crude stone altar
were rocks, each one with a word
painted on it. People had thought
of things that make up a just and
merciful society and written them
on stone to set in a holy place.
I looked at the words people had
put there. 'Loyalty? 'Peace?
'Love,' 'Perspective.' I noted wryly
that a rock inscribed with 'Sense of
Humor' had been broken, leaving
'Sense of Hum'. No one had
thought it worth setting down on
stone the word 'Leadership'.

When in Rome
do as the . . •
Everyone agrees the Roman Empire was liberal. Well, at least they
were all a bunch of libertines. They
borrowed the Greek idea of a liberal
education and were almost as
autocratic as people like Pierre
But would Trudeau wear a toga?
Would he have a great time at a
party getting drunk while wrapped

Interested in doing something

UBC hockey women win again
The UBC women's field hockey
team demonstrated its talent during
the first Canada West tournament
at the University of Saskatchewan
this past weekend.
UBC tied for first place with the
University of Victoria scoring 27
goals in five games.
"Tremendously pleased" with
the outcome of the tourney, coach
Gail Wilsons aid she was "pleasantly surprised that everyone is as good
as they are."
Wilson had previously expressed
some uncertainty about the team's
abilities after losing several experienced players from last years
team. She said she is pleased that
the remaining players with talent
are finally getting a chance to prove
UBC outclassed four of its five
competitors defeating the University of Calgary 6-0, Sask. 4-0, the
University of Manitoba 7-0, and the
University of Alberta 9-1.
UVic was the only serious competition in the tournament. The only two unbeaten teams, UVic and
Round bailers win
The UBC mens' soccer team
opened its Canafla West season
Saturday at Wolfson field with a
3-1 win over the hapless University
of Saskatchewan Huskies.
The 'Birds completely dominated
play yet had only mediocre scoring
success. Joel Johnson opened the
scoring with a header at the far post
off a cross from Dan Sudeyko.
The other UBC goal scorers were
Bruce Biles and Jonathan Birie.
Saskatchewan took advantage of a
UBC defensive mix-up to score its
The Huskies are the league's
worst team and have proved it by
jumping out to a 0-3 start and this is
why 'Bird coach Joe Johnson is only mildly pleased about his team's
performance. He felt UBC should
have scored more goals as they were
all scored in the first half. He was
not happy Saskatchewan held UBC
off the board for half the game.
Johnson said that both his
defense and offense would have to
improve if UBC was to become one
of the league's top teams. Last year
UBC tied for the league championship with the University of Calgary
but lost the title because Calgary-
took three out of the four points
from the two games the teams
This year the league will probably
be the toughest in Canada. The
University of Victoria is coached by
Canada's Olympic coach Brian
Hughes and has several players
from the national youth team.
The University of Alberta will
also be a serious contender for the
league title. Alberta is coached by
Bruce Twamely a former professional with the Edmonton Drillers.
Twamely is involved with Alberta's
youth team which supplies most of
the university's players.
UBC will be travelling to Saskatoon Friday for a rematch with the
Huskies and then on to Calgary.
Because of the league's tightness
and the relatively few games played,
each is very important.
Steele steals show
The UBC football team took
another step towards regaining the
Western Intercollegiate Football
League title they last held in 1978.
Friday night in Calgary when
they thrashed the University of
Calgary 34-1.
From the opening kick-off the
'Birds completely dominated
Calgary. UBC built up a 10-1 lead
at halftime and then blew the game
open in the third quarter by scoring
24 points.
Glenn Steele was once again
UBC's main catalyst. Steele carried
the ball 15 times for 108 yards. He
also had two and four yard
touchdown runs. Steele got some
help in the running game from
Peter Leclaire who rambled for 90
yards o,n 10 carries.
The 'Birds put Calgary out of its
misery when they scored two
touchdowns 14 seconds apart.
After Steele's first touchdown of
the night Mike Emergy forced a
fumble on the ensuing kickoff
return by jarring the ball losse; it
was then dribbled into the end zone
and Mark Beecroft fell on it for the
major. Steele is currently the WIFL
rushing leader and leading scorer.
The other touchdown was a 15
yard toss from starting quarterback
Jay Gard to Rob Ros. Gard and
Greg Clarke, who entered the game
late in the third quarter, were 12 for
21 which has been UBC's best game
in the air to date.
UBC coach Frank Smith said he
was very pleased with his defense.
Adding that his secondary played
an excellent game. Dan Moen and
Dave Singh played excellent games
to anchor the secondary, said
Ken Munro, UBC's placekicker,
converted all three touchdowns and
added field goals of 26 and 27
yards. Calgary's lone point came on
a missed field goal attempt in the
first half.
UBC played to a tie late Sunday
Wilson said the score was not indicative of the play as UBC had one
disallowed goal and the play was in
the UVic end the entire second half.
UBC's Ann Crofts scored with only
two minutes remaining in the game.
Overall top scorer in the tournament was UBC's Terri Drain who
scored nine times. Other top scorers
were UBC's Sally Sherwood with
five goals, and Crofts with four.
This weekend UBC faces
tougher competition as they host
the Early Bird Invitational. UVic,
SFU, junior varsity and the top
four teams in the Vancouver league
are invited.
The junior varsity played last
weekend in the Washington State
invitational.   The   team  won  one
game, tied one and lost two. UBC's
Dianna Popowich scored the only
goal in their 1-0 victory over
Nazarene College.
The University of California —
Berkeley, last years national champions, gave the junior varsity their
most difficut test. UCal scored
three in the first half and UBC's
Jennifer Leonty scored in the
second half to make it 3-1.

PLAYERS CONTEMPLATE hairy palms but decide that bliss of moment is worth dangers coach warned them
about. Players were seen fumbling blindly around field after game, some vowing loudly never to touch the balls
again. Actually men are UBC soccer players preparing for an indirect kick from U of Saskatchewan.
Lacrosse 'Birds national champs
The UBC men's field lacrosse
team capped its most successful
season ever by capturing the national championship Sunday. The
'Birds defeated the University of
Toronto 14-12 in overtime before
5,000 freezing fans in Toronto.
The weekend national championship was a round robin affair with
the top two teams playing off in the
UBC ended up with a 2-1 record
having lost to Toronto 11-10 in the
first game. The 'Birds made it into
the final by defeating the University
of Laval 13-10 and Prince Edward
Island 15-8.
UBC coach Greg Harney said his
team was flat for most of the tournament and never reached top form
until the final, where the 'Birds
scored   four   unanswered   third
period goals to tie the game at 11-11
and send it into overtime.
Mike Adlem, Brad Parry and
Grant Olson scored in the extra
period to clinch the title. Adlem led
UBC with 10 goals.
Adlem also won the
tournament's most valuable player
award. He was the runner-up to
Laval's Dave Richmond who potted
14 goals for the tournament scoring
Harney said "Adlem and Sam
Pattison, our goalie, are the two
players that got us through the
earlier games."
Doug Adlem, Mike's brother,
was the hero of the final with give
goals including the four third
period markers. Mike Adlem had
three goals in the final while Parry,
Olson and Russel Cowan had two
The temperature was one of the
reaons for UBC's poor play in the
round robin. The temperature in
Toronto over the weekend was four
degrees celsuis. It also took UBC a
while to get used to the astro-turf of
Toronto's Varsity stadium.
The last time UBC won the Canadian Championship was in 1951.
The captain of the team that year
was another Adlem, Peter, who
happens to be Mike and Doug's
Harney said he is pleased UBC's
program and players are finally getting recognition. Both Adlems as
well as Pattison, Parry, and Olson
have been asked out for the Canadian national team.
UBC will be back playing in the
local Vancouver league next
