Japanese fascist gives to Canadian university
by Stephanie Conway
MONTREAL (CUP)—A man who
calls himself "the world's wealthiest fascist" wants to donate money
to Canadian universities.
Ryoichi Sasakawa, 91, heads
the Japan Shipbuilding Industry
Foundation. During the second
world war he was a highly active
fascist and was designated a class
'A' (most heinous) war criminal,
though he was never tried.
According to Professor Sam
Noumoff, Director of McGill
University's Centre for Developing Area Studies, the McGill administration is considering accepting a donation from a foundation
associated with Sasakawa.
York University accepted a $1
million scholarship donation from
Sasakawa in 1990. Sasakawa's
name was removed from the scholarship after East Asian Studies
chair Bob Wakabayashi resigned
in protest. Accordingtoabrief prepared by Wakabayashi,
Sasakawa's donations are intended
to "whitewash his own and his
country's war crimes by falsifying
and distortingthe historical record"
and "to blunt mounting criticism
of Japanese trade and investment,
particularly i n North America and
Noumoff said that McGill is
seriously considering accepting the
money. "If this is true, it probably
marks the lowest point in McGill's
history and is a desecration of all
the university values which even
the most diverse among us hold in
common," said Noumoff.
McGill Geography Professor
Audrey Kobayashi said she "would
not be in favor of accepting money
from organizations such as
Kobayashi is nationally renowned for her efforts to redress
injustices to Japanese-Canadians,
and has received awards for her
role in securing government retributions for Japanese internees in
Canada during World War II.
Kobayashi is familiar with
Sasakawa's controversial past.
"He represents all the corrupt
practices Japan has been strug-
ing some progress against," she
"I do not believe Sasakawa's
monev comes without political im
plications. There has been a lot of
indications that he has attempted
to buy credibility and I don't think
that is an appropriate basis for accepting money at McGill."
McGill faculty in East Asian
Studies have in the past declined
individual grants from Sasakawa's
foundation on ethical grounds. Ac
cording to another professor in the
department, there is ongoing debate among scholars of Japan and
China about whether or not to
accept such monies. Recently
Sasakawa's donations have largely
gone to universities. On the list of
institutions accepting his millions
are Princeton, Berkeley and Ox
The University of California
at San Diego and the University of
Chicago both refused donations.
Sasakawa's foundation offered
money to the University of Hawaii, but they rescinded the offer
when faculty asked them to remove Sasakawa's name.
Hope fades for Steven Eby

by Dinos Kyrou
When Steven Eby, a 28 year
old UBC film student from Montana failed to appear for classes on
Tuesday 16 November, a friend
called the department to report
him as missing.
"As the department's projectionist he collected a film from
Videomatica at 2pm on Sunday 14
November before driving to the
parking lot at Mount Seymour ski
area for what appears to have been
a short, impromptu hike," said Gale
Oelkers, ofthe department of film.
The search for Eby, who had
no backpack or shelter with him,
began at midnight on Tuesday 16
November but rescue teams from
all over the Fraservalley were hampered last week by fog and blizzards. The clear skies on the weekend led to an intensification ofthe
search but it was called off on Sunday. Ross Peterson, coordinator for
the North and West Vancouver
Emergency Program was asked on
Monday why the search had been
called off.
"Further intensive searching
ofthe area was producing no suc-
"Some 100

area of
lOOsq km
of extremely
rugged terrain—very
steep cliffs, gullies and many boulders. There are also six to eight
inches of fresh snow which could
cover an injured person and the
weather made it extremely hard to
Steven Eby
hear any -possible calls for help.
"The risk of injury to the volunteers resulted in our decision to
call off the search," he said.
When asked if they had found
any sign at all of Eby, Peterson
said they had found partial footprints, sdl of which were followed
up, but had produced nothing.
"Steven is a very friendly person who has an up front, outgoing
personality. Even though he was
living alone because he was new to
UBC, he made friends quickly,"
says Oelkers. She later added in
agreement with his family and
friends that Steven, who has hiked
miles to film movies, is a hiker
with years of experience.
When Peterson was asked if it
was possible that Eby could make
his own way from the mountain,
now the search has ended, he replied, "That is possible, but we
now think it is very unlikely." THEUBYSSEY Classifieds

Chancellor candidate wants to shake up UVic
by Omar Kassis
A former student leader and
recent graduate ofthe University
of Victoria is running for the position of UVic chancellor.
Kelly Greenwell hopes to be
the youngest university chancellor in Canadiadian history, but he
will be up against stiff competition
in the form of 74-year-old Robert
Rogers, former governor-general
of BC and UVic chancellor for the
last three years.
The chancellor is legally the
highest-ranking official of a university, according to the Universities Act. But it is generally perceived as a ceremonial position,
because chancellors have not traditionally used their powers to influence university policy.
Greenwell wants to change
all that. The kinds of attacks that
have taken place on students—
and on potential students—have
been profound. People are saying
enoughisenough,"Greenwall said.
As an example he cites a 186
percent tuition fee increase at UVic
since 1980, raising fees from $679
to $1943. "I saw Rogers vote in this
huge tuition fee increase last year,"
Greenwell said.
One of Greenwell's campaign
priorities is a moratorium on tuition fee increases until the year
2000—if not an outright decrease.
"I don't agree with tuition fees
being user fees. Why should there
be a tax on learning?"
As well, he wants to see a
salary cap for senior faculty and
administrators set at $65,000.
"Last year at UVic there was
an abuse of the whole concept of
whaf s reasonable," according to
Greenwell. "When such a salary
cap was recommended by the ministry of advanced education, the
UVic board of governors decided to
ignore it. This is where we see the
tuition fee increase come in instead,''
he said.
He sees transfer payments
from the federal to provincial governments as the fundamental issue in Canadian post-secondary
education today.
"Federal payments are down,
and the provincial government
hasn't adjusted to this new reality.
They haven't fulfilled their responsibility and developed new programs or tax bases to realistically
fund education.*
Greenwell, 25, is hoping his
record as a student society executive at UVic and hi s active approach
to the campaign will give him an
edge over current chancellor Rogers,
who had to be persuaded to run by
The position has not been contested at UVic for over ten years,
and few ofthe alumni and faculty
typically return their ballots. In

than 33,000 eligible graduates

"The world tomorrow belongs
to the ones who build the world of
tomorrow."—P.E. Trudeau
UBC had the opportunity that
many schools and organizations
across Canada viedfor—having the
former prime mini ster speak as part
ofhis publicity tour for his new book
Memoirs—an Autobiography. UBC
was chosen as the only university
visit—accordingtohis publicist, because of Trudeau's fondness for the
campus where he received his
honourary doctorate of laws.
On Tuesday 16 November
Pierre Trudeau spoke of past events
and related them to issues in
present-day Canadian affairs.
Trudeau claimed that "Canada
is just one darn distinct society after another. We're all distinct societies; if you recognize one distinct
society then the Indians say well we
are a distinct society too—of course
they are—they are even more distinct than the distinctness of the
population in Quebec."
The former prime mini ster said
the history of french-english relations "is one of the english being
intolerant to french."
Asked for his opinion on the
durability of the new parties in
Canada—Bloc Quebecois and Reform—Trudeau said that those parties emerged out of a government
attempting to "bend over backwards" to understand the needs of
particular groups. He said it would
be up to the old-line parties to try
to regain national support.
Trudeau saidhisgovernment
was one in which the individual
came first, and if the trend ofthe
population places collective rights
before individual rights, then Bloc
Quebecois and Reform will maintain their support.
He said the Canadian constitution provides for self-government of provinces and that First
Nationsmust be clearer with their
aims—stating the limits of their
goals and then working towards
accomplishing them.
Trudeau also commented on
proposed laws prohibiting discrimination on the basis of sexual
The former prime minister
"thinks it should be included but
that it would be difficult", as it
requires seven out of ten provinces with 50 percent ofthe population to approve.
To end, the former prime minister offered "congratulations to
premier Harcourt and his govem-
mentfor saving Tatsenshini—itis
very important for Canadians who
have inherited such a great
country...to protect it from the deterioration of its environment and
to be able to hand it over as an
inheritance to our children as
beautiful as we received it from
our forefathers."

tection to date rape and racism,
promises "a real wake-up call" for
the three-year term.
Not content to advance his
short-term goals such as fee decreases and subsidi zed bus passes,
ending military research on campuses and ultimately-replacing both
tuition fees and corporate research
funding with public funding.
Balloting ends on 6 December
and the chancellor's duties begin
he has long-term goals such as    on 1 January 1994.
Jason part II: He's
and he's bad
The new summons mentions
the staffad and other articles which
mention Saunderson, and states
the references were "defamatory
in their nature and ordinary meaning and in the innuendoes contained therein they mean and were
understood to mean thatthe Plaintiff has a speech impediment, is
unintelligent, can be bribed and is
a member or associated with a
Satanist or devil-worship sect."
AMS president Bill Dobie said
he "totally supports the Ubyssey's
right to editorial freedom... especially things like this."
Saunderson's pursuit of the
lawsuit "seems to be contingent on
whether Jason has time" Dobie
Dobie said since the diminish-
ment of the Conservative party
Saunderson has "got nothing better to do than to sue us."

year the new publications board

Friday the 13th fellow either.
On 12 November 1993 the
AMS received a summons from Progressive Conservative Youth Party
activist Jason Saunderson.
The summons relates to a 6
October 1992 Ubyssey published
staffad, which quoted Saunderson
from one ofhis letters published in
an earlier Ubyssey.
The ad quote called on students to "act" to change "the politically biased crap put out by these
The ad then called on students
to join The Ubyssey staff. The
contentious part of the ad was a
reference to Jason Saunderson as
a member of the "UBC Young
Saunderson had previously
threatened a lawsuit over the reference. Aretraction was printed in
the 8 January 1993 of The Ubyssey,
and the lawsuit appeared to have
been dropped.

"The AMS will naturally defend its publications," he said.
Tm quite offended that a fiscal conservative like Jason would
act so frivolously with students'
money... he's wasting my time, he's
wasting the lawyer's time and definitely wasting students'
money...our lawyers are not cheap.
"Ifhis political career was truly
damaged, I doubt he would have
had a job... he worked for the department of defense all summer. I
don't buy the argument that we
have threatened him in that way,"
he said.
Dobie said he stands by the
editorial freedom of campus publications.
"I don't care what The Ubyssey
prints, its a matter of responsibility and I think the paper has taken
responsibility by publishing a retraction.
Saunderson could not be
reached for comment at press time.

You should have been there
by Tessa Moon
Somewhere between the turkey leftovers and Christmas dinners, something must have happened.
For example, the efficient relegation ofthe Safety Task Force by
AMS president Bill Dobie: "I dont
know if it's worth discussing now,
but those whoareinterested should
get together [in] a meeting
tommorrow [Thursday 18 November] at 5:30."
And the AMS writes lots of
letters—to the library, the women
of the counselling psychology department, head of counselling psychology William Borgen, and vice-
president of academic affairs Dan
Birch. All written up and ready to
go. End of story. So can we have a
mover and seconder for motion
number one?
The first motion approved the
EUS referendum for a two- year,
$10 fee hike for renovations ofthe
Cheeze Factory.
The secondmotion moved that
council appoint Gary Moore as
alumni representative to the publications board. William "now Fm
president for ever" Francis
Alexander Dobie III himself spoke
to the motion (he must have forgot
ten to pass the chair first—isnt
that against rules of order?). Motion carried unanimously.
Other business included a notice of motion involving changes to
the electoral policy. Said AMS vice
president and chair of the codes
and bylaws committee Janice
Boyle, "For one thing, the new
version is about eight pages
shorter." Student council
touched in passing on the university boulevard bike path issue.
Rumor has it that it will be packaged with chancellor boulevard
and other little road problems, and
turned into something that will
happen in ten years or so.
The student council meeting
began with presentations and a
question-and-answer session with
three Vancouver mayoral candidates.
Make that TWO mayoral
candidades—independent Bob
Seeman and COPE 93's Libby
Davies. Philip "students are not
his priority" Owen of the NPA
never showed up.
The presentations were the
usual "read-off-my-campaign-
posters" affairs. The following is
some of the more memorable
quotes from the "eager-for-student-
votes" candidates.
Davies: "If you want a ward
system, we have to get rid of the
Seeman: "Every time there's
a decision to be made the outcome
is predictable: COPE votes against
NPA and we have a division."
Davies: "Ifs easy to make wild
promises during campaigns but in
real life, a five per cent [tax] cut
represents a big reduction that
will have to come off somewhere."
Seeman: "With better organization ofthe police force ... I can
promise a five per cent tax reduction."
Davies: "I believe in leadership by example ... an accessible
city hall."
Seeman: "There's no place for
party politics in city hall."
A performance by the Music
Students Association was the highlight ofthe meeting.
The discussion once again
turned to letters the AMS is writing in protest against the
administration's inaction against
the Counselling Psychology threatening letters issue. Everything
that followed was a long, slow anticlimax. Surprise. Who needs
sleeping pills? 4     THE UBYSSEY Trudeau SDread

Trudeau's latest book-flogging
tour was a media circus to the max.
On Tuesday 16 November the SUB
ballroom was transformed into a
shrine for worshipping junkies.
Looking more haggard than in
the days ofhis prime, Trudeau was
still as arrogant and facetious as
ever. Hi s snappy answers and quick
retorts had the eager listeners
drooling for more.
The event began with a 30
minute career retrospective video
which highlighted his achievements
and glossed over the controversies.
It screamed, "Buy my book!"
Unfortunately this marketing
ploy left time for only eight students
to ask questions which mainly focused on Quebec and constitutional
From his answers, itis obvious
Trudeau still has an opinion on
j every political issue from NAFTA
(to the constitution. However, he
was asked more about his past political career than current issues.
He was stumped only once when
[ asked what the biggest mistake in
his political career was.
"I must have made one [mistake] somewhere," he mused. "But
I dont have any regrets, because
I regrets only lead to sleepless nights,
I ulcers, and alcoholism."
The one unanswered question
j generated from this event is why
does this ex-Prime Minister con-

were in their diapers and in el-

I        Perhaps this politician obses-

Love it: Leonce and Lena
by Tanya Storr
If you're a poetry enthusiast, you'll love Leonce and
Lena. If you're an idealist, you'll love Leonce and Lena.
And if you're a cynic, you'll also love Leonce and Lena.
This play offers something for just about everyone, and is
especially suitable for cynical/idealist/poetry enthusiasts
who revel in the bizarre. If this description fits you, go see
it—you will be glad you did.
Leonce and Lena
Dorothy Somerset Studio, LBC
24-27 November
Leonce and Lena, written by nineteenth-century
playwright Georg Buchner, focusses on the adventures of
Prince Leonce (Michael Shanks) and his energetic ruffian-
friend Valerio (Matthew Gray).
The two characters meet when Valerio, who is being
chased by two hilarious cops (Dawn Petten and Alex
Zahara), bursts in on the bored prince lounging in his
garden. From that point on, Valerio's often cynical
reactions to Leonce's flowery, melodramatic lines provide
a humourous balance between the two characters that is
well-sustained throughout the play. Leonce suffers from
acute boredom, and even in the presence of his beautiful
girlfriend, Rosetta (Kelly Barker), he cannot suppress his
yawns. When she asks him if he loves her, the best line he
can come up with is "I want to love your corpse."
Leonce's father, the extremely neurotic and very
funny King Peter (Gavin Crawford) arranges for a
marriage to take place between Leonce and Princess Lena,
and sends his president (Peter Wilson) and councillors
(Jacqueline Gouchie and Art Kitching) to inform his
prince of his decision. Leonce's romantic nature cringes at the
thought of marrying a woman he doesn't know, jumps at
Valerio's suggestion that they run away to Italy. Princess Lena,
a romantic idealist herself, is likewise appalled at the thought of
manying a man she hasn't met, so she and her governess also
flee to Italy. True to fairytale form, the prince and princess meet
and fall in love, and return just in time for their wedding in King
Peter's court, thus giving the king valid reason to be happy, as
he had planned to be.
Although the plotline may sound typical, director Richard
Wolfe and his cast have done an excellent job of making this
play anything but ordinary. The play opens with a brilliant
image based on Indonesian shadow puppetry. Silhouetted
against a red-lit screen, three actors—two as string puppets, one
as puppeteer—perform a jerky puppet dance to music.
Throughout the rest of the play, many of the actors move in a
synchronized jerky style echoing that of the opening puppet
dance. The costumes and make-up are exaggerated to good
effect, and even the set changes are humourous.
The set itself is very creative, especially given the
limitations of a small stage. Doors set in panels on both sides of
the stage provide creative routes for the actors to enter and exit
scenes, and the jerky wedding dance performed by all the actors
at the end makes clever use of all of the doors. Elements of the
bizarre abound in the script, and this production heightens their
sillirirss. At the same time, the serious comments made by the
play about the corruption of authority and the often futile
pursuit of hard work still shine through despite the production's
largely ludicrous mood. In addition, the acting on the whole is
excellent and lively.
In short, if you are in the mood for a bizarrely cynical yet
idealistic view on life, or ifyou merely feel hke a good laugh,
go see Leonce and Lena. It is guaranteed to relieve some of
your pre-Christmas-exam stress, at least temporarily.

Holly Cole gets that star-struck, infatuated approach from
time to time.
"In letters more. People don't usually just brazenly say, but
they'll write it down and mail it to you."
Most of her letters are from people who just want to say that
they really dig the Holly Cole Trio, that the music helped them or
changed their life in a certain way.

"The straight part is such an annoying thing for me, 'cos I
have to use an eyelash curler and no-one should ever have to do
that," she muses.
"It's a big pain. They're parallel to the floor. Whenever I get
my makeup done, people go, 'I've never seen straighter, longer
eyelashes in the world.' Like toothpicks or something. Black
toothpicks coming out of my eyes. It's like air-conditioning for the

ockey: Blame it on Holly Cole
Stanley Cup final, when the Canadiens lambasted the lethargic LA
Kings all over the Montreal Forum to win the holy grail of hockey.
"I saw Guy Carbonneau skate around with the Cup, Patrick
Roy and everybody and it was really great. And then I went out
and did $10 Million worth of damage to the city of Montreal."
'That was me. I was egging everybody on. They were
holding me up on their shoulders and I had a big staff going,
She wasn't really. But she is as opinionated as the next
hockey fanatic. The league has way too many teams. The limited
talent pool is spread out, so the hockey is worse. Changing the
names of the divisions and conferences is nothing short of heresy.
"It really sucks because they wanted to make it so that the
Americans could understand it. They're doing everything in their
power to get it on network TV in the United States. I don't care if
it's on network TV on the states or not, because it's a Canadian
sport, a Canadian tradition. And I certainly don't want to cater to
their needs, and I think that's what's happening a lot and that's a
big drag."
Some pay homage to the art of fighting. Some treasure a
silver ice ballet punctuated by 100-mile an hour pucks. Holly Cole
loves the drama of dives.
"When they pretend to get a penalty, but they just do a big
bellyflop on the ice and pretend to be hurt. That's my favourite
part, when theatre meets hockey."
english and french at the Forum, before the Canadiens move to a
new rink.
"I like the old Forum a lot, so I want to sing in the old Forum.
If I don't get it happening this year, then it won't happen."
She's frustrated by the lack of encouraging response from
Habs' buraurcracy.
"They're like, 'We don't get pop singers, we get that guy
with the big beard to do it.'"
"I don't know if it's a language issue. I don't know if it's a
gender issue. But it is an issue."
second full-length recording. Blame It On My Youth,
became the fust gold record in Blue Note Records history
in Japan and the biggest selling EMI record of 1992 in that
In March, the Trio won Japan's Grand Prix '93 Gold Disk
Award (the Japanese equivalent of the Juno or Grammy) for Best
Jazz Album and Best New Artist. They performed to over 20
million viewers on the national broadcast. Their newest work.
Don't Smoke in Bed, is fast following in its predecesor's footsteps.
Not bad, considering the Holly Cole Trio was unknown in
Japan a year and a half ago.
"We kind of lucked out," says Cole. "First off, the record
wasn't even released there and we had a hit single."
A DJ on a Tokyo radio station happened onto a copy of the
Trio's Blame h On My Youth in an import store and fell in love
with their haunting version of "Calling You." He played il once on
his show and was flooded by requests for it. In two short
weeks, the song was number five on the international
chart and the Holly Cole Trio didn't have a record out.
People flocked to import stores, scooping up 10,000
import copies of Blame It On My Youth before Toshiba-
EMI could rush-release it for Japanese distribution.
"I think the reason people like it so much is that in
Japan, they really like jazz music—they've kind of
appropriated jazz music there—but also, I think they like
our approach to it, which isn't traditional at all. A very
minimalist approach—which always has been very
Japanese—and also, the fusing of different styles."
No international mass-media hype machine. No record
company pressure. Just masses mesmerized by Holly's
voice, Aaron's piano and David's bass.
How big are the Holly Cole Trio in Japan? Huge.
"I never dreamed that at 29, I'd be making a greatest
hits album there."
Trio isn't into nostalgia or stodgy traditionalism,
much to the chagrin of critical jazz purists.
"There's a kind of sense of humour and poking fun
even, sometimes, not always. But sometimes there's real
jabs towards the real tradition of what it is.
"A lot of these songs were written in the 20's, 30's,
40's, and times have changed a lot and people's attitudes
have changed. And I'm totally modern and don't want to
go back to those times. I think there are certain values in
those times that are good, but some of them aren't, and I
think they're sort of changing. And I think people can
relate to that"
Cole's modem attitude demands that songs be updated
to mean something to today's audience.
"Our mandate is to make it identifiably ours, but still to
make sense. It has to make sense why we're changing it,"
she says about the Trio's creative process. "So some
songs go by the wayside, but basically, it has to be a song that
appeals to me lyrically and that's harder to find than music."
The craft of lyric writing has gone down hill over the
decades—a lot of the reason why the Holly Cole Trio performs
old songs.
"There used to be a lot more great lyricists than there are
now. But I think there are still some and I think we found them.
Mary Margaret O'Hara, for instance. Tom Waits on the last
record. Casey Scott, this unknown woman who wrote "Cry (If
You Want To)" on the new record."
"So it has to appeal to me lyrically. And it has to be good
song musically, but There's a lot of stuff you can fuck around with
but it's certainly been true for my life."
"My Foolish Heart," one of her favourite songs, reflects her
attitude on the grand illusion and emotion called "love."
"The whole premise of my singing it is about how it's just me
once again, wanting it to be true so much that I pretended it's true.
And the whole time I'm singing it, I know that it's not true, but
I'm singing that it is true."
Her advice for today's lovers? Safe sex.
"Use a condom. In people's quest for love or lust—and
they're really different—that's your biggest scare. Your heart can
get broken anyday and it will mend eventually, but you get AIDS
and you don't mend—yet"

musically that you can't do lyrically because of the double-
standard laws that exist with music and lyrics."
Cole. Irritation seeps into hex otherwise very pleasing voice as she
describes the arranging and recording process for "The Man I
Love," a song originally meant for Girl Talk, their first album.
"Someday he'll come along, the man I love / And he'll be
big and strong, the man I love," or so the song goes. Or went,
according to Cole.
"It's not my major priority that my boyfriend be big and
strong. There are other tiling:; that are maybe more important to
me. I wanted to get away from the "oh, he'll take care of me" sort
of thing. So I said, 'He won't be big and strong, the man I love.'"
They recorded theii version of the song, changing the
melody, harmonic structure, and arranging the hell out of the tune.
"But when we try to change one word—No! No way! And
it's the law, unless you get approval."
Since Ira Gershwin died some time ago, Cole obviously
couldn't get "approval" and so the song never made it onto the
record. Uncool.
The mandate of jazz music and jazz musicians, "is about
change and innovation and modernization of the music," she says,
"but it's totally not okay with words."
treats themes of love and devotion. Many Trio songs have a
dark undercurrent of love's desperation and disbelief. But
what is love for Holly Cole?
"That's a really, really hard question. I think it would be
difficult for anyone to answer that. Well, it's certainly difficult for
me. I don't redly know. I guess it's the thing I constantly search
for and constantly push away. So it's a continuous stream of
searching and pushing it away. And I don't know why that's true,
after I've stayed up really, really late. That fully
completely pisses me off. When my car won't start.
Getting towed away. That fully and completely pisses me off. It's
S220 to get your car back—that's a real piss off."
Finding happiness in Holly Cole's life: taking her dog to the
park and throwing sticks for her, an incredibly silent and attentive
audience, really good red wine, coriander ("that's my favourite
thing"), hot sauce ("oh yes! I put hot sauce on everything"),
driving her car with the top down, shopping in New York.
And leaving Los Angeles.
"Although we've had really good gigs, really good times
there, I've got to say it's a vapid existence. You can have fun
there, and it's great to shop and the weather is always great there,
but it's such a bizane place, filled with plastic-surgery-self-
obsessed-money-hungry people."
Of course, not everybody in southern California is like that,
but while she's generalizing about the place, she points out that
LA is plagued by lots of guns, lots of violence, and lack of a scene.
"You just drive to a restaurant in the middle of nowhere and
there's a scene in there, but you walk out and you can't just go out
for a drink somewhere, you've got to drive another five miles
somewhere else where there's an isolated place. Everything is
completely spread out."
San Francisco, on the other hand, is god's country to Holly
"I love San Francisco, it's really culturally active, incredibly
beautiful, all the big hills, it's a great place, good attitude," she
declares fondly.
"But I don't want to move. I want to live in Canada."
True North, Strong and Free, eh? Holly Cole stands on guard
for thee.
Have you got any change?
by Bob Main
"Could you spare some
change?" How often has this question been met with pity and compliance or with a sneer of contempt?
Iriese are common replies toa question that should never have to be
asked. But in a society where these
words are repeated over and over
something is being done to alter
the question a bit, to lessen the pity
and to hopefully remove the contempt.
Spare Change newspaper is
giving people something to offer for
the money some of them used to
panhandle for. It is a very well put
together paper with engaging articles on a range of topics about
poverty, the streets and the people
who survive them.
Legitimating a trade for the
vendors helps them respect themselves. The paper promotes self-
esteem because 99 percent of the
reactions to the paper are positive.
But sometimes one person can spoil
a whole day.
Circulation manager and vendor George Stoner said, "by the
time they get here they've got low
self-esteem from being on welfare
so long and it takes a lot to build
them up. All it takes is a look and it
just crushes you."
The paper started on 4 August
1992, in Vancouver with a printing
of 1000; the circulation is now
15,000 in Vancouver and 5000 in
E dmonton. Trie paper comes out on
the first Wednesday of every month.
Editor/publisher Michael McCarthy borrowed the idea from
TheBiglssue published in London,
England. They have just moved to
a larger office to accommodate increased production.
Spare Change is able to run at
a very low add percentage because
the vendors are the only people
making any money. Trie 42 vendors pay 30 cents a copy and sell it
for whatever they can get. Trie staff
is all volunteer and advertising
covers the rest of the production
costs. Vendors average about 60
cents profit per copy and sell between 15 and 30 a day.
Stoner said there are three
good hours in a day that will see
about ten papers sold. The rest of
the day is less productive; sore feet
and a lack of interest can start to
outweigh an empty pocket. Many
vendors will then buy their groceries and head home.
The paper has vendor profiles,
stories about lives turned for the
better, interestdngstreet facts from
around the world and Canada, features on specific street issues—

A life lived in the shadows
by Stephanie Conway
MONTREAL (CUP) — Ryoichi
Sasakawa's fervent nationalism
was firmly established in 1931
when he became president of the
expansionist Kokusai taishuto, or
"Mass Party Representing Japan's
National Essence", which, by 1941,
had amassed 110,000 black-shirted
in 1933, an attempt to assassinate
Prime Minister Wakatsuki Reyiro,
a diplomat who decried the army's
role in Manchuria. In 1935, members of Kokusai tai shuto attempted
to discredit and later assassinate
law professor and constitutionalist
Minobe Tatsukichi for daring to
assert that the emperor was simply an organ of the state, not an
absolute authority.
In 1939, Sasakawa met with
Dictator; Benito Mussolini, a man
he greatly admired because he "took
beggars off the street." He would
later tell the press, "Mussolini was
a first class person. He had the
character, the spirit and the conviction of the old samurai of Japan... he was the perfect fascist
and dictator."
Sasakawa'scampaignfor public support of Japanese expansion
won him a seat on the Diet (Japan's
parliament)in 1942, during a notoriously undemocratic period of government. Sasakawa fuelled imperialist sentiment with his party's
donations of an airfield and private
airforce of 20 planes.
He was a close ally of Admiral
Isoroku Yamamoto, planner of
Japan's attack on Pearl Harbor.
Both advocated invasion of China,
Malaysia and the Philippines.
Sasakawa's 15,000-strong
troops were instrumental in tiie
plunder of strategic resources, such
as tin and rubber, in China and
South East Asia. According to an
article in the Village Voice, on one
occasion, the troops executed the
30,000 inhabitants of one village
when they refused to comply.
In 1945, Sasakawa was interned in Sugamo prison, accompanied by higher government officials and war-instigators (all
marked with Class 'A' status).
According to Professor
Noumoff, "It was reported that
Sasakawa was not actually arrested but had approached American military authorities and
brokered his way into prison, knowing that this was the key to the
post-war political network."
Three years later, Sasakawa
was released without trial by US
military officials. Japan has never
conducted its own war crimes trials. David Kaplan and Alec Dubro
in their book Yakuza have speculated that a deal was struck between Sasakawaandthe CIA which
allegedly saw him as an anti-communist ally.
Sasakawa's effort to re-establish the National Essence Party
and to pursue explicitly militarist
aims was foiled by Japan's postwar constitution. Instead, he used
his wealth to support conservative
politicians and to found a legal mo*
torboat gambling business. According to a 1990 Globe and Mail article, the motorboat racing venture
now grossesover $10 billion ayear.
The Motor Boat Racing Association, as a semi-private enterprise, must contribute approximately 25 per cent of its earnings to
"public interest activities." But
Sasakawa, president of the association, has donated this money in
his own name. While some cite the
legality of this business as proof of
Sasakawa's 'clean slate', Japanese
gambling is deeply imbedded in
underground money-maki ng interests.
Sasakawa's extensive 'charity'
servestoallaymuchcriticism. The
Japan Shipbuilding Industry Foundation has, since 1962, given $3
billion worth of charitable donations to United Nations organizations, universities, and non-profit
Sasakawa also buys media influence with the $17 million-a-year
the Motorboat Racing Association
of Japan spends on advertising and
promotion, including full page ads
featuring himself in domestic and
foreign newspapers.
During an early Ethiopian
famine, Sasakawa appeared in a
T.V commercial handing out money
to starving children in the middle
of afield.

Sasakawa's personal wealth would
rank him in the top ten of the
world's wealthiest.
Sasakawa's strategic links
with right-wing politicians and
prominent figures in Japan's underworld is widely known among
Japanese people.
"I don't know Mr. Sasakawa
personally much the same way I
didnt know Al Capone personally,"
said an anonymous Japanese e-
mail correspondent.
In the post-war period,
Sasakawa consolidated his ties with
Yoshio Kodama and Yoshio Fuji,
former National Essence Party
(Taishuto) cohorts, and fellow pri s-
oners. Kodama and Sasakawa,
upon release from prison, contributed massive funds to their former
cell-mate, Kishi Nobusuke, who
went on to become Prime Minister
in 1956.
In 1976, Fuji was on the Board
of Directors of the Zen-Nippon
Aikokusha Dan tai Kaigi (National
Council of Patriotic Societies) the
controlling body for 400 right-wing
extremist groups with 150,000
members. In the 1960s these groups
led massive attacks on student protesters and have, more recently,
been employed to intimidate and
break up unions, especially the
Japanese Teachers Union which
has criticized Sasakawa's TV commercials.
Also a Board member,
Sasakawa was employed by the
National Council of Patriotic Societies as their 'Advisor'. Today,
Sasakawa wears the prestigious
title of Kuromaku. According to an
article in the Globe and Mail, this
means he is "a backstage political
director with immense power but
without public responsibilities."
Sasakawa is also known as a
mediator between warring underworld gangs. According to an article in Insight, he has recourse to
sokaiya (extortionists) to facilitate
financial operations. Sasakawa
maintained critical ties with
Kodama, another underworld mediator and important power broker
for the liberal Democratic Party
(LDP), until his death in 1984.
Sasakawa's threatening underworld connections and his generous contributions to the current
LDP government have affordedhim
great political influence. His political allies include former Prime
Ministers Nobusuke Kishi and
Takeo Fukuda as well as Diet member Ishihara Shintaro. He also sits
on the board of several organizations, many of which count themselves among his donor recipients.
As president ofthe World Karate Federation and chair of 30
Japanese karate organizations,
Sasakawa secures wide domestic
and foreign recognition. Some
speculate his hidden agenda is to
promote paramilitary combat under the guise of peaceful sporting.
Feware willingto publicly criti
cize Sasakawa. After daily newspaper Asahi Shimban criticized
him, Sasakawa wielded his influence on the Sumitomo Banking
Group to refuse the paper loans.
For many Japanese, Sasakawa
is a dirty word. Others are duped
by the benevolent image he puts
forward for the public. He has
earned two ofthe highest Emperor's
decorations in Japan without being a member ofthe imperial family: the First Order of the Sacred
Treasure (1978) and the First Order of Merit with the Grand Cordon ofthe Rising Sun (1987). Such
distinctions are consistent with
Sasakawa's ideological support of
Emperor-worship and its concomitant militarism.
Sasakawa has actively sought
to promote himself, and by extension Japan, to the international
community. His donations to the
United Nations and the United
Nations University in Tokyo make
him their largest single donor.
Some say he is angling for the
Nobel Peace Prize. According to
one McGill East Asian Studies professor, Sasakawa is lobbying to
make Japanese imperialism in
WWII look more like a war of liberation than one of aggression.

What you buy, whether or not you go to university,
whether you pollute the environment, who you decide to
marry—it can all be reduced to a simple cost-benefit analysis.
Or so the Fraser Institute would have you believe. The
right-wing think-tank (the term "think* is used loosely here)
recently hosted a weekend "student seminar on public policy
Yes, industry polluters will pollute less ifyou give them
incentives not to pollute, as one lecture had it. The logical
conclusion of this line of thought, paired -with an unblinking
faith in free markets, is that "tradeable emission permits"—
shares to pollute—will create the most efficient polluting
But such a suggestion assumes whoever allocates the
polluting shares will carefully limit the total amount to be
polluted, and that it will become economically imperative for
industries to stop polluting. Instead, according to several
activist who have seen such a system in practice in the US,
the result is to legalize larger-scale polluting that existed
Other Institute suggestions included a lifting of all
limits to campaign spending. Again, one has to give the
Institute credit for highlighting the way the old-line federal
parties tried to cement their control on parliament by
limiting all third-party advertising to just $1000. But the
suggestion to free up all campaign spending rests on the
assumption voiced by Institute director Filip Palda, that
"more campaign spending means more information to the
If anyone feels more informed sifter watching an hour,
two hours, ten hours of ads by the Tories, the National
Citizens' Coalition (remember the "very, very scary" Ed
Broadbent ads?) or the Natural Law Party, then the argument would hold. The free-market solution the institute
proposes avoids the wider issue of who has access to the
communications media, who is heard and who can hear
Underlying all these concerns are a few fundamentally
blinkered assumptions. First, the assumption that free
markets guarantee equal access to everyone.
Clearly, a male who has inherited dad's riches, was
schooled at Saint George's or Upper Canada College, and
was introduced to the other members ofthe old boys network
when they were still young boys, has far more material and
cultural resources to draw from than those born poor and
black on the wrong side ofthe tracks in Dartmouth, or Jane
and Finch in Toronto, or the far side of Renfrew street here.
Second, the Fraser Institute assumes that every decision anyone ever makes is done with a full accounting ofthe
possible costs and benefits. This is simply impossible. No-
one can estimate the fiill effects of any action, even something as simple as buying something in the supermarket
Third, the Institute line veers wide of the issue of
coercion. Theoretically everyone in the "free* market acts
completely freely. They choose to enter into "contracts"
whether in marriage, business or others.
The real world operates a little differently. A person
entering the labour market is not freely and consciously
choosing to sell their labour. They have little choice, really.
The freedom to choose not to take a McJob is for many the
freedom to starve. Some choice.
Does the average consumer have the time or effort to
weigh the environmental costs of buying regular versus
organic produce, or the impact on the people of Burma from
buying Pepsi versus Coke?
Simplistic analysis leads to simplistic solutions, and
sure enough that is what the Fraser Institute provides.
Unfortunately, those sorts of solutions are just the sorts
popular for now-established groups like the Reform Party.
We can only hope that critical thinking and a willingness to
understand life in all its complexity will be embraced by
most people—whether in "voting" for a product in the
supermarket or voting out their political overlords.

Letters to the Staff
Keep it short
and sweet—dig
Re editor by Al Decker, printed
16 November 1993
It is difficult to respond to
Al Decker's letter, as it touches
upon many different issues—
the representation ofthe Faculty of Forestry both on campus and in the community, the
state of forestry in British Columbia, and fundamentally the
quality of education provided
by the Faculty of Forestry. As
an undergraduates' society, we
give a voice to undergraduate
concerns, and we attempt to
provide a quality undergraduate experience through the
provision of educational and
social activities not offered in
the curriculum. It is not our
place to voice an "opinion" of
the undergraduates, as the
views and opinions within our
faculty are as varied and diverse as those found in society.
Yet the impressions formed of
our faculty affect all undergraduates, so some response is
The quality of an education arises from what you get
out of it, and generalizations
are dangerous. There are engineers who are not good engineers, there are doctors who
are not good doctors, and there
are foresters who are not good
foresters. As students, we pick
and choose, form our opinions,
build our beliefs and make our
own decisions. The idea that a
faculty contains a mass consciousness and attitude that
can be labeled is a fallacy that
discredits theindividuality and
pride of all students. The most
important aspect of an education is its balance—are all
views equally represented in
term8 of importance and the
availability of information?
Within the Macmillan
building is a faculty with five
separate degree programs,
ranging from Natural Resources Conservation to Forest Operations, and a student
funded and run organization
called Students for Forestry
Awareness, which provides a
series of speakers based on
student suggestions. Recent
speakers have included
Adriane Carr from the Western Canada Wilderness Com
mittee, Corky Evans, MLA for
Nelson-Creston, and Bill
Routely, president ofthe IWA
in Port Alberni. These talks
are free and open to the general public, and always involve
a question and answer period.
University is not a place to be
spoon fed, but a place to hold
the spoon and choose the dish.
The idea that the
Macmillan buildingthrough its
name implies a marriage of
the faculty to the industry is
fairly absurd. H.R. Macmillan
funded the construction of our
building (among others, such
as the Vancouver Planetarium); however, our views
are not his or of the company
he created, just as education
students do not follow Dr.
Scarfe's ideas on education, nor
do commerce students voice
the ideas of David Lam. The
involvement of Macmillan-
Bloedel in several of this
province's most contentious
environmental debates seems
to have generated sweeping
generalizations towards all
foresters and things associated
with the company. Generalizations are dangerous.
Finally is the case of how
we, as undergraduates, conduct ourselves, and the perceptions our actions generate
on campus and in society. Mr.
Decker's letter is a reminder
that students have a responsibility not only to their faculty,
but to their chosen profession.
The disappearance of old
growth ecosystems is a desperate issue, one which is
fought on a spiritual and deeply
personal level, rather than an
economic one. We see environmentally degrading forest
practices result in the loss of
both plant and animal species
on a world-wide scale. Our
attitudes towards the forest
resource must be serious and
informed, and above the polarization society and the media
encourages. Our decisions
must be based on the knowledge of the resource and our
conscience. But we are thinking, educated students, capable
of humor and sarcasm, able to
laugh at the caricatures of our
profession without losing a
balanced view of the whole,
and believe, perhaps mistakenly, that others are capable of
this as well. Mr. Decker polarized our facul ty and set it neatly
into one category.
His opinions were based
on the balance of his education

and "One fine day several

Brevity is the
soul of wit—dig
I am writing this letter to
complain about several inadequacies in the selection procedure for delegates to the I.R.
faculty's model United Nations
I.R sends a team of students to Boston every year for
a model U.N. conference. To
apply to get on the team, the
student must write two short
essays and prepare oral presentations on four questions
given by the I.R.S.A. executive. About 60 students wrote
the essays, but I understood
only 30-40 would actually do
the extensive research and
show up to do the presentation.
First there was some debate with the president of
I.R.S.A. on whether a law student was an undergrad or not.
(My student card is yellow and
reads "Undergraduate" in big
letters.) With some reluctance,
Mr. Mike Sheehan eventually
told me it was "no problem".
Psyched and ready, I
showed up on the designated
day at International House. I
sa t and waited past the time of
my interview before I was told,
"Oh, they changed the date to
tomorrow." Understandably
furious, I called several people,
and when I finally got an answer it was, "Oh, sorry I didn't
call—you must have slipped
through the cracks. We had
signs up, but you wouldn't have
seen them because you're not
in Arts."
I went again the following
day, and had to wait an extra
half an hour as they were run
ning late (even though I was
first up), making me late for
my class.
The selection was to be
made and candidates notified
one week later. I know that
one ofthe candidates was called
by his I.R.S.A. buddies two
days later, whereas after 10
days I had not received an answer either way. I had understood all candidates would be
called, as a gesture of consideration and acknowledgement of
the substantial effort put into
researching the four presentations.
I can fully accept not being chosen—I must have spoken badly that day. However,
even a loser doesn't feel so bad
about losing if at least the process by which s/he lost was
fair. lean accept I.R.S.A. probably didn't want a law student
and let me prepare anyway. I
can accept not being notified of
the change of date, and not
getting called later. I could
even accept the process, based
on a one-shot, three-minute
presentation, if the process was
However, after speaking
to past delegates, I discovered
that not only do I.R.S A. members traditionally pick their
friends, but that delegates to
previous years' conferences are
automatically eligible to go
again. This obviously lowers
the odds; had I known that, I
would not have bothered to
apply. The thing that really
bothers me, though, is that my
tax dollars and school fees are
helping to send these people to
For students who are
hoping to enter the diplomatic
field, the whole deceptive process was the most
undiplomatic, undemocratic,
elitist and unorganized piece
of baloney I have ever had the
misfortune to encounter. The
unwritten "rules" and procedure easily give rise to a reasonable apprehension of bias.
So, a word of warning to
those planning for next year:

Bobcats bloodied
by Chow-man
Sudden-death overtime, an
on-ice brawl, 144 minutes in penalties, loads of goals and a LOT of
blood: varsity hockey—to paraphrase Cherry—ya gotta love it.
Saturday 21 November
Bobcats 5 Thunderbirds 6
After tying the Brandon University Bobcats the previous night,
the Hockey T-Birds were ready to
take it to the Bobcats, a team whose
main feature is a patented pylon-
style of team defence. UBC D-man
Ryan Douglas opened the scoring
at 11:00 after a nice drop-pass play
with Jeff Watchorn in the Brandon zone.
Then, the fall. With UBCs
Derek Lampshire resting in the
box for roughing, Brandon's top
scorer Simon Oliver added to his
powerplay stats with a goal at
12:14. Sixty-one seconds later,
Bobcat defenceman Richard Kidd
slammed a puck through T-Bird
goalie Paul Hurl's five-hole after
Brandon's Guy Williams won the
face-off deepin the UBC zone. Tyler
Boucher was allowed to dipsy-
doodle along the left-wing boards
untouched, cut to the slot and make
Hurl look truly uncool for the third
time in just over three minutes.
At 19:49 of the first period,
with the nearest T-Bird closer to
the parking lot than Bobcat
Mervyn Priest, the Brandon forward deked Hurl out of his jock
strap royally.
With two seconds on the clock,
a frustrated UBC team engaged
their opponents in an exhibition of
testosterone over-dosing that saw
T-Birds Loui Mellios, Blake Knox,
Matt Sharrers, Derek Lampshire
and Bobcats Guy Williams, Richard Kidd, Alan Patterson, and Phil
Valk combine for a whopping 106
penalty minutes.
Period two began with some
powerplay flashes. Forward Dean
Richards tapped one past Brandon
goalie Richard Geisel on a 4-on-3
powerplay at 2:49. T-Bird Dave
Bond slid one in along the ice on
Geisel's stick side on the following
5-on-4 at 4:32. Twenty seconds
later, UBC's Scott Frizell tied it up.
Mid-way through the period,
UBC forward Frank Crosina was
tossed after leaving the blood gushing from Bobcat Brad Trave's face
like water from a tap with an unintentional high-stick. The resulting
Brandon powerplay goal at 11:35
further exposed P&ul Hurl's weak
stick side. UBC scoring leader
Blake Knox tied it up once more,
nailing one through the Brandon
net-minder's five-hole at 16:32.
After some off-the-post blanks
in the third, UBCs Frizzell ended
the game in OT with a fluke goal.
"I took a shot—just to get a
shot on net—hoping for a rebound,"
"It hit the defenceman, went
straight up in the air, I took the hi t,
I tinned around andlooked and the
nef s off, the puck's in the net,
everybody's got their hands up."
The win moves UBC to 3-6-3
and drops Brandon to 2-8-2, but
UBC coach Mike Coflin, while
pleased with taking three out of
four points from the Bobcats, was
disappointed with overall team
"We took far too many penalties. We let a team that creates
very little offense on their own—
through turn-overs and power-
plays, we let them play with us for
six periods."
"We dig ourselves in a little
hole, but we're a team that can
come back from that, but we've got
to learn not to get too far in the hole
before we can't get out," mused
hero-boy/UBC player ofthe game
Frizzell. "So we have to make sure
we come out in the first period and
