student pub beer prices in the
A survey conducted by The
Ubyssey found that the Pit's
$1.15 for a bottle of Canadian
beer is the highest price charged
in student union pubs in Canada.
Beer prices ranged from as
low as 60 cents a bottle at the
University of Lethbridge student
pub (currently Alberta still suffers a shortage of Canadian beer
due to a labor dispute, so prices
date to July) to as high as $1.10
at the University of Victoria. But
none hit the Pit's $1.15 level.

boasts the highest liquor store

According to Len Clarke,
Alma Mater Society finance director, the Pit will make a
$66,000 profit this year. But
Clarke claims that the profits are
due to good management, not
the AMS' pricing policy.
"In my opinion, we should
have the lowest prices in town
but with reasonable return,"
Clarke said earlier this year.

increased the price of beer before the recent labor dispute occurred, meaning that a further
increase is not impossible.

Med cutback
a 'surprise'

A recommendation to cut back
medical school enrolments from a
meeting of Canada's provincial
health ministers last week came as
"quite a surprise," according to
B.C. Medical Association
spokesman Jim Gilmore.
The ministers agreed last week at
their Winnipeg conference to consider cutting back medical school
enrolments and closing smaller
medical schools to head off further
increases in medicare costs.
But the UBC faculty of medicine
is currently doubling its enrolment
of first year students, Gilmore said
Gilmore said he felt the idea was
not a serious one.
"I can't see (B.C. health
minister) Rafe Mair or Ontario
agreeing with it," he said. "It
sounds like an idea that got thrown
on the table and was leaked out."
Both B.C. and Ontario are facing
a severe doctor shortage, he said.
UBC has implemented a seven-
year plan to double first year enrolment from 60 to 120 students to
combat the shortage of "home
grown" doctors, Gilmore said. The
program is now in its second year.
The provincial government has
also begun to cut back on the licensing of "immigrant" doctors — doctors who receive their training
elsewhere and come to practise in
The University of Victoria has
been asking for a medical school as
well, Gilmore said.
While news of the ministers'
recommendation came as a surprise
to Gilmore, he said it was nothing
out of the ordinary because the
health ministry does not consult
with the BCMA over most matters.
The health ministers met to
discuss the supply and demand for
doctors, nurses and other health
workers. Manitoba health minister
Bud Sherman said family practitioners and other specialists are so
numerous they have put a strain on
provincial health budgets.
To end the surplus, as he sees it,
medical schools may have to cut
down on admissions, or close entirely.
Members of the Association of
Medical Colleges have opposed the
recommendation and questioned
the validity of figures and
arguments used by the ministers.
"If the provinces want to save
money by having less doctors, cutting enrolments is not the
solution," said Dr. Doug Waugh,
AOMC executive director and
member of the federal
government's physician manpower

Council member caffs for input on SUB changes
Student input into planned SUB renovations is needed before any ideas are put up
for approval, social work representative Marty Lund told student council Wednesday.
"We seem to think that we're the only ones
who know what to do with their (the
students') money. It's about time we gave the
students a change to have some say in what
we're doing," Lund said.
Council Briefs
He proposed that open meetings be held to
allow students to voice their feelings on SUB
renovation proposals before approval be
given to any of the projects.
Lund said the proposals needed to be examined more carefully.
"I hope this (the proposals) goes to a
referendum and doesn't pass so that it can
come back and we can look at it again," she
The possible uses for the extra space were
also discussed. A major issue was whether to
use the extra room for club space or shops.
"The idea (SUB proposals) is going to go
to referendum. Whether it's shops or club
space is something we've go to discuss," said
Alma Mater Society finance director Len
The proposed lounge also met with opposition. Lund suggested an opinion survey be
held to find out student feelings on a new
lounge and the project as a whole.
"Basically, we've got to figure out whether
the majority of the students do want a lounge
or whether they want club space, or whether
they  want  nothing  at  all,"   said  student
senator Chris Niwinsky.

A 13 per cent tuition increase may be on
the way next year said student board of
governors representative Anthony Dickinson.
"The board decides tuition fees for next
year at the November board meeting. In
order to make next year's tuition fees 10 per
cent of the operating budget they have to in-
creae tuition fees by thirteen per cent," he
"Last year the board of governors made a
policy decision that they were going to raise
student fees to 10 per cent of the operating
budget. They also stated that the period of
time at which this is to be done is at their
discretion," Dickinson said.
Student council passed a motion to write a
letter to UBC president Doug Kenny asking
for information regarding tuition fee increases across Canada.

looking into tuition fee increases.

Commerce representative Bruce Cheng
presented a report on a survey to be run by
students in Commerce 365 on campus media.
The survey is already in the planning stages
and is scheduled to be conducted in the last
two weeks of October. It will cost $750.
But the media commission in its final
report recommended the AMS form a media
liaison committee which would consider con
ducting a comprehensive survey of students
about campus media, as well as look into a
proposed clubs' supplement and the
possibility of autonomy for CITR and The
The commission also recommended that
the liaison committee have equal representation from student council, The Ubyssey and
CITR, and be chaired by the AMS ombudsperson as a non-voting member. Each
organization would elect its own representatives.
The commission report stressed that campus media, like other AMS organizations,
should be self-governing.

Police may be needed
The victim of a kidnapping during the Arts 20 race says he just
wants to forget the incident but intramurals director Nestor Korchinsky said Thursday that a police investigation is still possible.
"I don't think anyone wants to
take it to the outside authorities,"
Korchinsky said. "An outside force
shouldn't have to come in and
remedy a student situation."
But Korchinsky said he is not
willing to simply forget the incident, in which men's medicine team
member Jason Gray was attacked
by six men and left bound up during
the race. He said he hoped the abductors would come forward and
explain the incident as an unfortunate prank.
Gray said Thursday that the incident is forgotten as far as he is concerned and added that he does not
want to see the police involved.
Gray said he is not willing to press
charges and would not be able to
identify his assailants in any event.
But Korchinsky warned that if
this year's kidnapping is not solved,
next year's Arts 20 race might not
happen. "If I have to look forward
to next year with some reservations,
then it's not worth organizing," he
said. "I don't want to have armed
patrols guarding the runners."
The intramurals head said Arts
20 organizers were deeply embarrassed about the pall that hung over
this year's race. "It embarrassed all
our guests — the chancellor and
even some guests who had run in"
the Arts 20 race in the 1920's and
1930's," added Korchinsky.
Meanwhile, the UBC engineering
undergraduate society Thursday
denied all responsibility for the inci
dent and criticized the kidnappers.
"The EUS had nothing to do with
the despicable act of kidnapping an
Arts 20 runner in this year's event,"
said EUS president Don Ehrenholz.
"I hope something like this just
never happens again," he said.
Ehrenholz said the EUS has no
idea who was involved in the incident.

'Witch hunt' nets illegal suites
Canadian University Press
Burnaby council voted Sept. 29
to prosecute three landlords found
in an illegal suite "witch hunt."
All three cases were found in a
house-to-house search initiated by
the council early in 1979.
The decision came as a shock to
the Simon Fraser University community. Until now the council has
had an informal agreement with
SFU that it would not actively seek
out illegal suites because of the dif-

tees," Mitchell said. "I feel the proper method would be to consider
the minutes (as a whole) and if we
don't feel we can accept the decisions of the budget committee we
should move to make some decisions to change the members of the
budget committee rather than usurping their authority."
Marlea Haugen, AMS vice president and budget committee
member, also considered the deletion of the committee's decision
from the minutes to be a motion of
Finance director Len Clarke was
questioned at the meeting about
how he could prepare the budget
and then vote against it when it
came to the budget committee.
"I have a job to do to make sure
that the clubs budget is financed as
best as possible," Clarke said. "It's
the budget committee's job to make
value judgements."
Clarke said he was not sure
whether council's vote would have
any effect on the budget committee
when they re-examine the women's
committee's budget.
AMS administration director
Craig Brooks said this was only the
third time in recent history student
council has voted to delete a motion
from the minutes.

A good comparison with UBC's
Pit is the University of Alberta's
Room at the Top or RATT. The
RATT, which as the name implies is
on the top (seventh) floor of the
student union building, charges 80
cents per bottle of beer.
Despite the low beer price, RATT
is expected this year to make a profit of about $23,000. The pub also
subsidizes the cost of food with liquor sales profits.
RATT's 80 cents a bottle price
compares quite favorably with
downtown Edmonton pubs. Bottled beer can be had for as low as
$1.10 a bottle in the sleazier pubs
but the average price is around
A similar situation exists at the
University of Calgary. At U of C
the pub is a joint student
union/food services venture, with
the price set at 95 cents per bottle.
Last year the operation made a profit of $17,000 but all of it must go
toward renovations. In downtown
Calgary pubs sell beer for as low as
Other student pub prices across
Canada include the University of

cents a bottle at various University
of Toronto campuses, 95 cents a

find housing. Prosecutions have
arisen only as a result of complaints.
The decision will increase the current housing crisis faced by Burnaby residents.
"There is still a housing crisis, so
they're just putting people into the
streets," said SFU student society
president Bill Goodacres. "Our
understanding was that they
weren't going to move on illegal

short time after the council was told
by its building inspector that the
council did not have the right not to
enforce its own by-laws concerning
illegal suites.
The building inspector had consulted a solicitor who told him ac

and not on others could be
discriminatory, said Fred Randall,
Burnaby alderman and council
housing committee chairman.
But Burnaby mayor Dave Mercier denied that a crackdown was
taking place. "We didn't make any
change in policy, and we're not doing anything special on the application of our by-laws," he said.
Mercier would not comment on
the informal agreement between the
university and the municipality.
"We've got six prosections pending and there could be close to
4,000 illegal suites. Six in one year

"My understanding was that they
would operate only on legitimate
complaints," said Randall.
When the building inspector was

"We were told it was not a witch
But a door-to-door search happened almost immediately after the
hiring, he said.
Mercier said a door-to-door
search would "definitely not"
follow the Sept. 29 decision. "I
never was in favour of a door-to-
door inspection," he said.
"We have to take action against
these landlords though," Mercier
said. "It (illegal suites) is no different from any other part of our

with Vancouver in its attitude
toward   illegal   suites,   Goodacre
said. "In Vancouver provision has
been made in their by-laws structure
to overlook illegal suites where need

"If someone asked what the Burnaby council's policy was, I'd be
very hard pressed to give an
answer," Randall said. "People on
low incomes are spending 50 to 60
per cent of their income on rent.
"There's a lot of women living
together, and men, and single
parents. They're the people who
can least afford it. They're going to
have to pay another 50 per cent on
rent," he said.
"We think it's to the total good

"Landlords are doing their own

units that may be unsafe."
But Goodacre said, "They're just

U of T boots students' fed
TORONTO (CUP) — The Ontario Federation of Students' campaign for membership fee increases
suffered a severe setback this week
when University of Toronto students rejected the increases in a referendum held Tuesday and Wednesday.
An usually high number of voters
turned out to defeat the referendum
question which called for a $1.50 increase to $3 per student.
The president of U of T's student
council, Peter Gal way, said he may
resign his position because of the
referendum defeat.
The referendum was "the number one priority," of his administration this year, he said.
U of T will lose its membership in
OFS as of September 1981 unless
two-thirds of the member institutions also vote against the fee increase.
Students at the universities of
Guelph, Western Ontario, Waterloo, and the graduate student union
at the U of T all voted in favor of
the increase.
York University, Ryerson Poly-
technical Institute and nine other
institutions have upcoming referenda.
Galway said he fears the results at
U of T will affect the outcome at
other schools.
"We still think the OFS increase
is essential. I wouldn't want to see
these referenda fail," he said.
Alister Campbell, who led a cam
paign against the fee increases, said
he interpreted the results as "a swift
kick in the rear of the OFS."
Galway said the referendum failed because the council did not adequately explain OFS to the students. He said the rejection of the
fee increase was not a rejection of
AMS mediated
A mediator has been called in to
continue negotiations between the
Alma Mater Society and its
employees, members of Office and
Technical Employees Union local
This is the second time in five
years a mediator has been needed to
facilitate negotiations, which are in
a "deadlock situation," according
to shop steward Elizabeth Collins.
Although she would not
specifically comment about the
issues on the bargaining table, Collins did say salaries are the focus of
the talks.
Last year the union received a
nine per cent increase in wages. The
AMS had originally offered seven
per cent.
Collins said she does not anticipate too many problems.
"Generally the AMS has given a
fair settlement in the past," she
said Thursday.
The 11 members of the local are
satisfied with the benefits in their
contract, which includes dental and
medical coverage, severance pay
and holidays, said Collins.
The next negotiating session will
be on Oct. 14.
"Nothing will happen until the
mediator comes and goes," said
Rapid transit is too slow in
coming to Vancouver, a Citizens
for Rapid Transit spokeswoman
said Thursday.
"You're likely to see a Winnipeg express before you see
anything in Vancouver," said
Lise Minovitz.
The citizens group was in SUB
Thursday collecting signatures
for a petition requesting the
federal and provincial governments to finance a rapid transit
system for Vancouver. The petition calls for the two levels of
government to act on a recent
feasibility study which says Vancouver should develop a rapid
transit system similar to that of
Calgary or Edmonton.
Minovitz said such a system
would not act to encourage
growth in Vancouver, but added
that "people are going to move
here anyway."
She said there would always
be a need for rapid transit.
Even though there are plans
for such projects as a moving
sidewalk and a monorail in Vancouver, Minovitz said municipal
affairs minister Bill Vander
Zalm will do nothing in the way
of rapid transit until after the
Transpo 86 transportation fair
planned for Vancouver. Page 4

Join up
Once upon a time, a poor student lived in an illegal basement
'dungeon-style' suite far from the route where the bus that he
couldn't afford travelled and even further from the university he
also couldn't afford.
He applied for a student loan and found he could only get the
same amount as the olden days of yore when tuition fees were
lower, rents were relatively tiny and food was affordable.
He wrote a letter to his MP complaining about inadequate loans.
That didn't work. Aiming a little lower, he wrote a letter to the
university complaining about fees. That didn't work either. Even
his student society didn't have the resources to help him.
Finally, through the efforts of a courageous student newspaper,
he found out students all across Canada share the same problems.
He also found out there were student organizations attempting
to unite men and women like himself in Canada who need-to represent a solid front to governments, universities and the public when
explaining their problems and their suggestions for solutions.
But his university didn't belong to the National Union of Students. Nor did it have a membership, in the B.C. Students' Federation.
He was a student at UBC. He was out of luck. Up the creek.
Without weapons or means to fight those who were keeping him in
his basement dungeon, far from the buses he couldn't afford, poor
and penniless in an affluent society.
The Alma Mater Society representatives who attend the NUS
conference in Winnipeg starting Oct. 16 should be thinking hard
about the student spoken of here. Regardless of the twists and
turns of national student organization politics, they should remember a fundamental fact: nothing can be done by students in Canada
to improve their lot until they start honestly working together.
NUS and BCSF have their problems; God knows we have our
own in trying to serve students right here. But considering what
they have produced with minimal resources, they are the best
game in town.
Their biggest problem is lack of support from the largest universities. The AMS can do a lot to solve that problem.

Kidnapping irrelevant to gear team win
There are two separate questions
involved and somehow they have
become one in everyone's mind.
The first question is who would
have won the coveted Arts 20 had
medicine's runner not been abducted.
Certainly the honor of medicine
seems to have been impugned (as
was everyone else who did not win).
I don't want to question their ability — no doubt they're all competent athletes (who wouldn't be after
running 60 miles a week to train for
one race) and had the race proceeded as it should have they may very
well have won.
Further, should they wish to pro-

path by being totally invisible in the glare of oncoming headlights.

ve their ability as athletes by challenging any comers to another race
they are certainly welcome to do
that too.
But as important as they and
everyone else may feel the conclusion of that race to be, it has no
bearing on the question of whether
engineers were involved in the kidnapping incident. That is an entirely
different issue and it is irrelevant
whether engineering would or
would not have won the race.
I resent the implication that if our
team should lose then we must have
been responsible and I am infuriated by the implication that should
our team refuse to race, (for any
reason — including fear of losing)
that engineers are obviously the culprits.
Suddenly reams and reams of innuendoes and phrases like "abduction . . . allegedly from engineering
(sic)" and "which may have had
support from the engineering undergraduate society" are spewed all
over the pages of The Ubyssey.
If you feel us to be responsible,
take us to court or at least substantiate your allegations in some fashion so that we have a chance to clear
our name. Are we guilty simply by
reason of being first? The only refutation I can offer is that to the best
of our knowledge no one in engineering was involved in the incident
in any way, shape or form.

Things aren't what they seem
"Your order, madame?"
"Well, let me see ... I'd like to
start with a wee bit of fellatio,
followed by a nice fresh bit of erect
penis, then I'll have a plate of sexual
orgy and wash down the whole
works with some bestiality and your
best flasher."
"Would you care for some

"Yes, some group sex would be
Sound incredible? Well, it's no
mere hungry hedonist's simple
dream come true. Instead, it's part
of a multi-million dollar advertising
business that daily serves up delectable dishes to unknowing consumers. A barrage of highly-
specialized sexual fantasies/ death
wishes and hallucination-like images flash before your eyes every
day and we don't even know.
Why? Because it's all part of
subliminal seduction, says Wilson
Bryan Key, 55, who has worked for
nine international ad agencies and
is author of the books Media Sexploitation, Subliminal Seduction
and Clam Plate Orgy.
Key says he has watched over
the shoulders of extraordinary:
technically skilled artists, who with
the utmost precision, carefully paint
detailed images of human genitalia,
sex acts of bestiality scenes into a
single magazine advertisement, at a
cost of up to $3 million each.
It sometimes takes up to 300
hours of work for one advertisement, he adds, but these expert
"painters" are well rewarded,
sometimes paid up to $2 million a
"It's stunning in its significance,"
Key told 350 students in the SUB
ballroom this week. "Nobody
realizes anything's happened at all.
But research done substantiates
that this (subliminal advertising)
has the capability of modifying a
whole society's reproductive
"The artist isn't hiding
anything," he adds. "It's all hanging out, it's all up front. You're subconsciously hiding it from
Key's favorite subliminal surprise
is what he calls the "clam plate
org/', discovered after dining in
San Diego's Howard Johnson's. As
he explains:
"I realized that I had a plate of
fried clams in front of me and I really didn't want them. I absolutely
loathe fried clams and I've hated
them all my life. And yet something
had made me buy those clams ..."
So Key, along with three others
who had also ordered the clam
plate, later decided to examine the
"picture" of clams on the
restaurant's placemats, which have
been used for five years across the
U.S. With the help of a slide
presentation. Key illustrated what
they found:
• the plate's sprig of parsley
had been expertly painted, forming
the word SEX;
• a black dot in the centre of
the plate was the focus of the clam
"scene"; it formed the face of a
donkey that appeared to be licking
the stomach of a nude male. In
fact, once all the surrounding clams
were outlined in black, it was clearly
visible that the plate contained a
carefully constructed orgy scene involving eight people in contorted
positions, along with the donkey in
the middle.
Now, it's easy, as Key himself
says, for the average person to
stare in disbelief at these images
once they are pointed out and
dismiss them as the result of overly
zealous human imagination. But
after showing slide after slide of
similar sexual images found in other
advertisements, some of which
have been called textbook perfect
in their depiction of human
anatomy, it's difficult to remain
As Key, a former professor at
UCLA and the University of
Western Ontario emphatically
states: "There's no chance of it being accidental."
Some people are aware of the old
subliminal sex-and-nudity-in-an-ice-
cube ploy used in liquor advertisements, but many probably don't
realize the amount of research involved to produce such images.
Most reflect common moods
documented in studies of chronic
drinkers or drug abusers — a death
wish, self-abuse, or symbolic
For example, Key illustrated the
"Dante's Inferno" he found in one
liquor advertisement for Johnny
Walker scotch that innocuously
showed a glass with six ice cubes.
With the use of slide close-ups, Key
revealed the subliminal images of
horror: a disembodied pair of legs
hanging in mid-air, bizarre,
distorted faces resembling those
seen in hallucinations, a tortured
figure wearing a surreal death
mask, a snake charmer with a cobra
and a raven posed next to two or-
fices and a long shaft, with a skull
Key says he showed the latter image of a penis to members of
UCLA's physiological department
who said the art work was an extremely accurate representation of
a castrated penis. It was so good it
could have been used in a medicinal
text, they added.
"There is exquisite detail in the
glands," said Key. "Someone did a
lot of research on this. Obviously
these people (subliminal ad
overseers) know a lot more of why
you drink, use drugs and smoke
than you do."
He claims that such gripping, evil
images as depicted in the liquor ad
are dangerous because they
perpetuate self-derogation. They
are an eroding force on human adjustment and the use of alcohol,
tobacco and drugs implies an element of self-destruction, he adds.
"We keep assuming the stuff
doesn't affect us. We all think ads
don't work," he says. "They (ad
agencies) are telling us how much
they're doing for us, we should be
more concerned what the/re doing
to us."
Most of the images shown in the
advertisement's ice cubes were upside down because the human eye
perceives the world as such, adds
In another liquor ad, this time for
Chivas Regal whisky, the sacred is
subliminally juxtaposed with the
obscene, in Key's words. It's
"fellatio in an ice cube:" a woman
kneels at crotch level putting
"something" to her mouth while
the man in peaked cap and robes

classic mind control.
(the Pope?) looks on. And only
another ice cube away is an image
of Jesus Christ with outstretched
arms to "dynamite people's
minds," says Key.
For those who prefer a martini on
the rocks with a twist of lemon,
there's an added subliminal surprise
in the glass, says Key. His slide
close-up reveals a tiny man standing on the lemon peel. On ever
closer examination, the man is seen
to be wearing a hat, with coat
drawn back — meet "the flasher."
The scenario is continued on an ice
cube where the image of an older
woman appears to be scolding the
Seagrams is one liquor company
that Key claims is guilty of
subliminal seduction. It also happens to partly fund the University of
Western Ontario, wb&e Key was a
professor with a Phd in communications. He taught classes
there for six years only to return
from a holiday to find all his classes
suddenly cancelled and the course
discontinued, he explains.
The university offered Key
$64,000 tax free to resign and gave
no reason for the action, he says.
There was never a confrontation
but when he later returned to inquire, the president and administration were very polite, "almost
friendl/' and told him to "back off
and enjoy," he adds.
"I was upsetting people in very
high places and that made me feel
good. I think it (subliminal advertising) is dangerous. We're in a great
deal of trouble."
The Nevada resident is quick to
point out that subliminal seduction
and "penis power" are not limited
to liquor ads in mainstream
magazines such as Time or
Newsweek. In fact, the male organ
has surfaced subliminally on a
billboard that advertises (what
else?) — beef. To passersby it appears nothing more than a succulent, juicy slice of red meat. But
with a closer look and with the help
of an outline, the profile of a male
penis is clearly depicted in the
"This sells beef, that's why they
(advertisers) do it," says Key. "This
is a painting, a fantasy, something
out of an artist's head. It's in
geniously done."
Well at least the meat wasn't pur
pie, which around ad agencies,
represents genital colors, says Key
Women are the primary targets
for such male-infested sublimina
messages and ads sometimes go a:
far as to depict symbolic castration,
claims Key. He uses a Parkay
margarine ad as his example; ii
represents a $2 million market investment, appearing in home
domestic magazines such as Family
Circle, Red Book and Gooc
The ad proclaims: "Take advan
tage of a softie." A thick slab o
margarine is about to be spread or
a fresh biscuit with a knife. But tht
slab is no ordinary slab; it's got t
very deliberate ridge, and indeec
the margarine portion is a well
detailed close-up look at a man's
penis, about to be sliced by th«
knife. Key sums up the effect:
"All of this rich, lush mellow
margarine ... all of it is intendec
to be placed in the mouth. And th(
knife blade has cut the penis off
It's symbolic castration. You've go:
to find vulnerability in the consumei
market to exploit it."
There are countless more ex
amples of similar subliminal image;
in publications from France's Paris
Match to even Canada's Maclean's
magazine, which Key illustrator,
through slides. But the Maclean's
example appeared somewhat less
convincing or striking than some o
the others.
The Feb. 6/78 cover of Maclean's
has a well-dressed couple about tc
dash off beside the cover stop
headline which reads: "Year of th<
Peacock." As Key points out, th<
caption just happens to be perfectly
aligned with the pelvic areas of th<
two models. And on further examination of the couple's crotch
areas, the man's appears with i
highly prominent bulge and the
woman's with an unbelievable
form-fitting image of the vagine
beneath her fancy dress. Hence the
title "Pea-cock."
Wild fantasy or sublime seduction? It's your decision.

Page Friday 2
Friday, October 10, 1981 r
It might be feather boas and perversity to you, darling, but to many
others it's just plain old drag. I had
coffee with the illusive, Fiona Rae,
to discuss the much misunderstood
form of personal expression.
PF: Fiona, it's great to see you.
How have you been keeping?
Fiona Rae: Oh honey, this girl's
been busy. For me, doing drag is a
full-time job.
PF: What's the difference between drag and female impersonation?
FR: Basically nothing; they both
have to do with projecting the image of a woman.
I think that anyone can be a
female impersonator, but only a
man can be a drag queen. I mean,
Bette Midler impersonates women
in her stage show, but she certainly
is not a man. I'm a drag queen. I'm
a man who dresses as a woman.
PF: How did you start doing
FR: Oh God, I don't know. When
we were kids we used to play dress-
up with old clothes. But I think that
all kids do that in one form or another. When I was about 17 we used to do it for parties and stuff. The
Rocky Horror Picture Show was
also really big back then. People are
still into that movie, but you can't
hear the sound for all the noise that
the fans make. Anyway, a few of us
got dolled up for parties and I just
found it really comfortable. As a
woman I found that I related differently to the people around me. It
was really a lot easier to face a room
full of people when I was in drag.
PF: So that it was a bit of a
power trip?
FR: No, it wasn't about power.
It's just that in drag you can do
things that you can't normally do. I
did some work with a clown troupe
a few years ago, and that's when I
really started to understand how
drag works. The individual who
puts on the makeup and costume is
really using props. It is like a form of
theatre in everyday life. When you
are dressed like a woman you be-
'Plain old drag' takes
Fiona's full-time efforts
REGAL DRAG . . . projecting character.
come a different person. Sometimes, for parties I'd dress up like
Bette Davis or Marilyn Monroe. In
that case you play the person. At
other times you just work from your
mental conception of woman. It's a
form of stereotyping.
As a man you don't exist any
more; you are being this image of a
woman. In the same way, once the
makeup and stuff is off, you relate
as yourself. It all comes down to the
fact that drag is theatre.
PF: So that in drag you are relating to the world through a projected character?
FR: That's it, doll. When a football or hockey player is all dressed
up in his sports drag — the uniforms, pads and stuff — he is ready
to get out there and play the game.
The last place he'd want to be is at
a polite little dinner party. I think
that the basic idea of drag as external props allowing you to play
within a certain frame of mind, is a
lot more common than most people
think. You feel and behave differently in a shirt and tie than you do
in a sweat shirt and blue jeans.
PF: So drag is a personal extension and a sort of living theatre. But
why do you think drag exists?
FR: It seems like a basic part of
human nature to play make-believe.
Michel Tremblay, the Quebecois
playwright who wrote Hosanna,
has an interesting view. He said
that the drag queens in his plays
represent people who are unhappy
with their lives. They want something else that isn't readily accessible to them. So they solve the problem, as best they can, by becoming someone else. I guess that it
does have to do with being discontent with your reality. I don't know,
though, if it is really accurate to say
that ail drag queens are unhappy
people. I'm really happy. Drag adds
a meaningful dimension to my life.
PF: A lot of people are fascinated
by drag. And it's not just gays.
There are a lot of straight men and
women who watch drag. Why do
you think this is?
FR: It's magic. Let's face it, with
movies like Star Wars around now,
the everyday world can look pretty
drab. Drag gives you the magic of
illusion. It's feathers and colorful
costumes and flash. Only in jest
would a drag queen do a suburban
housewife. Look at Craig Russell's
show; that is a perfect example of
magic. Where else in this day and
age can you see Bette Midler, Billie
Holiday, Judy Garland, Marlene
Dietrich and a host of others on the
same stage? It's a perfect form of
PF: I'm a little concerned that,
with all this talk about props and
magic, we are trivializing the idea of
drag. Is it all make-believe?
FR: In a sense, yes; it's a whole
world based upon a character you
are projecting using makeup and
stuff. But that doesn't mean that it
is trivial at all. God, I couldn't live
without doing drag. It is an integral
part of my life. When it's happening
it is complete reality. You are someone else, and behave accordingly.
Drag becomes the reality.
PF: So it's inside your mind as
well as part of the appearance?
FR: Of course. Men do not usually wear dresses in an everyday context. When you are in drag you
can't behave like you would as a
man; it's all wrong. Drag is a way of

Subliminal seduction has been
going on for centuries in art, painting, and until recently, political
campaigns, says Key. It is now illegal only for use on television, so
ad agencies continue to invest in its
commercial use. At most ad agencies, the creative director and art
director are aware of and carefully
supervisee subliminal advertisements with specific instructions, says Key.
But it could well become illegal in
the U.S. if violations of the federal
trade commission act are taken to
court; an attempt to deceive has to
be proven according to the act's

Pornography: A Respectable Lie.
Sponsored by the Alma Mater
Society Women's Committee, the
presentation was screened Friday at
noon in SUB 130 as part of a continuing series of films and presentations on topics of concern to
According to Women in Focus,
pornography depicts much more
than the nude female body. "It's
not just the use of women's bodies
but the message behind it that's
pornographic," the film says. "Gir-
ly" books and other forms of pornography project an image of
women as sexual objects, open and
available for use by men.
This image is created not only by
the models' provocative poses —
which give the impression they are
positioned explicitly for the pleasure
of the viewer — but also by their
facial expressions.
Women in Focus assert it is no
accident that the women in advertisements by and large project the
"available" look prominent in pornography. This "come and get me"
look has been used to sell almost
every type of consumer goods from
records to cars, from food to vacation resorts.
Furthermore, there is no ambiguity about what pornography —
and the less obvious pornography
in advertising — is saying about the
power relationship between men
and women. Men are portrayed as
the dominant ones, the powerful
father figures, while the most attractive image of women in pornography is and remains one of
passivity and childish helplessness.
What are the ramifications of
these characterizations of women?
The consensus of the feminist community is that these caricatures
promote the stereotypic image of
women as a passive object for the
sexual gratification of men.
These are the images we transmit
to our children. Little girls learn early in life not to dress for comfort or
need but to dress in a way that will
make them attractive to the opposite sex. This fosters a sense of
competition between women for
male attention. The fashion industry is dominated by male standards of beauty.
Our generation has been taught
to tolerate pornography as proof of
our liberated sexuality. But is the
objectification of women in the
name of sexuality "liberated" — or
are we still in the sexual dark ages?
Women in Focus contends the acceptance of pornography is not a
sign of being open minded and calls
upon individuals of both sexes to
state without fear of being called
"prudish" that pornography — including pornography in advertising
— is degrading to women and as
such, repugnant to all free-thinking

Graffiti—art form of the masses
"UBC Robots: Unite and commit
collective suicide."
— Graffiti near UBC gates
There's lots of graffiti on Vancouver streets. It's the working class
billboard. No need for paid adverts,
just scrawl your message on the
nearest wall with spray paint or felt
pen. People on the street will read
you. You're published, you're an
unknown author.
Now there's always been graffiti,
from the days of ancient humankind and cave drawings, to Indian
petroglyphs, through Roman times
and the preserved graffiti of Pompei
all the way to the present. Obviously graffiti is fulfilling some deep-
rooted urge within people, or is per-
"*K- haps just reflecting a need to communicate or a creative impulse to
scrawl on walls, just as children do.
But what's of interest is the explosion of graffiti here in Vancouver in
recent years. It could be due to an
increase in public political awareness, the punk rock movement or
an increase in societal pressures.
But one thing for sure: buildings are
getting it that were untouched before.
Graffiti by nature is difficult to
classify: there are no recognized
schools. It's an individual effort,
usually done anonymously and because of its illegality, usually done
under cover of night. However
there are perhaps a few general
trends one might discern:
There's Political Rhetoric graffiti
with a point. "Help the Boat People— They're Dying," "Make the
Rich Pay," "Kill Vanderzalm," "The
encircled A for anarchy." This category also includes Nuclear Awareness graffiti, "Nuclear Warfare = Global Insanity," "No
Candu." In addition we have Revolutionary Rhetoric. "I hate computers. I hate police. Destroy them."
And Feminist Rhetoric. "Women
claim the night," "Stop Rape," etc.
Identification graffiti is a common
variety. "Bob loves Jane" "Bob
loves Jack" "R.D.&D.S." This
would include most of the punk
graffiti. "The Metros" "U-J3RK5"
"DOA Rules." Who hasn't scratched their initials into something at
one time or another? It's basic. It
proves you're here.
We then come to the well-known
Murder Victim Police Chalk Outlines, those strangely affecting outlines painted onto sidewalks with a
splash of red for detail. They appeared here as well as in U.S. cities
from Seattle all the way to New
York, and art critics commented on
their "intense power."
In Vancouver large colorful graphic designs have recently appeared on construction walls. They are
spray painted and contain any number of colors. The designs are quite
diverse in their layout but they're all
catchy and show a nice control of
the medium. All are abstracts without an overt message, and make a
welcome addition to plain plywood
walls.  Then there is the   graffiti
which, while a printed message, is
of a decidedly artistic bent. "Your
tongue is wet" "50% off" "Have
you ever wanted to kill your boss?"
Graffiti is a premeditated act: not

often does one walk about with a
can of rocket red spray paint in
one's pocket or with an economy-
size Jiffy Marker at the ready. As
well the message is usually premeditated. Persons responsible for
religious intellectual graffiti, e.g.,
"Cocaine is the stone of Zion.
Babylon rises!" were seen clutching
their cue cards as they went at their
Certainly the bombing of the
Armed Forces' "There's no Life like
it" was premeditated. In this instance the billboard's grinning Canadian youth dressed in battle
fatigues was painted with streams
of bloody red paint issuing from his
mouth. It's interesting to note that
the billboards were hit soon after
they were put up, presumably just
enough time for the person(s) responsible to get organized. Then
not a week after this act the billboards were redone so as to cover
the paint, mostly likely on orders
from the Armed Forces. A real little
street battle.
Graffiti is a crime. Apprehended
persons can be charged with public
mischief, vandalism or damage to
public property. And perhaps this is
good. No one likes to see obscenities spray painted on some nice
building or monument. One local
shopkeeper had his building repainted three times before he relented and put up a special board
for street artists.
But there are times and places for
graffiti. There are things that
should be said and there are places
they should be painted. One graffito might be read by thousands of
people and perhaps affect at least
some of those. It's a way to spread
ideas. There's no censor and no editor. It truly is the people's billboard. So, c'mon, let's get those
spray paints and felt pens happening. Graffiti now!

Friday, October 10, 1980 Superman's movie
a timeless romance
Cynics, take heed. Somewhere in
Time,' which deals with a man's
psychological and physical journey
back in time to meet the woman of
his dreams, will probably leave you
cringing with disbelief.
Romantics, rejoice. Somewhere
in Time is a captivating romance-
fantasy about a man and a
woman's love which transcends the
limits of this world and which triumphs and conquers all.
Somewhere in Time
Directed by Jeannot Szwarc
Opening today at Odeon,
Dunbar, West Van Odeon
and Westminster Mall
Christopher Reeve plays Richard
Collier, a promising young
playwright who in 1972 receives a
gold pocket time-piece from a
woman who tells him to come back
to her in time. Eight years pass by,
the now-successful writer is still
troubled about the brief but strange
While alone on vacation, he
comes upon a magnificent hotel,
the illustrious Grand Hotel (which
really exists on Mackinac Island,
Michigan, although the film is set in
Illinois). There he learns that the
same woman who visited him has
become a famous stage actress
named Elise Mckenna. She had also
been at the hotel once, performing
in a play there...in 19121
Enchanted by her portrait, and
intrigued by discoveries about her
life. Collier begins to entertain the
notion of time travel induced by
hypnotic suggestions, a subject
that had also interested Elise
Mckenna shortly before her death
in 1972.
To give away any more of the
plot is to ruin the movie. Suffice it
to say that Collier does travel back
in time.
Any film that incorporates the
concept of time travel as a central
factor in its plot must overcome a
number of obstacles, not the least
of which is to convince the audience of its plausibility.
Somewhere in Time does this,
and does it brilliantly. If the story
line sounds corny and incredible, it
does not appear so on the screen.
The concept of time travel is handled credibly, which is a real feat. A
flaw in last year's film Time After
Time, about H. G. Wells' trip to the
future was the odd-looking time
machine itself; there is nothing like
this in Somewhere in Time.
This film is refreshingly simple,
but not simplistic. It is successful as
a fantasy and as a love story
because it lets us appreciate the
characters and revel in its dreamlike

Christopher Reeve, in his first
film since Superman two years ago,
gives a relaxed, believable performance as Collier, the playwright.

the actress with whom Collier falls
in love, is stunning and beautiful.
Like the film itself, she has a
delicate charm.

surprising to find a film that dares
to be unpretentious.

Redford makes auspicious directorial debut
The disintegration of the family
has become a popular topic in
cinema today. When translated
successfully to the screen, the subject matter can provide intense and
thought-provoking moments, as in
Woody Allen's Interiors. When
done badly, however, it can be
reduced to unpalatable melodrama
like Robert Benton's Kramer vs.
Ordinary People, which marks
Robert Redford's directorial debut,
is closer to the intelligence and
sophistication of Interiors than to
the saccharine solutions of Kramer
vs. Kramer.
Ordinary People
Directed by Robert Redford
Playing at Vancouver Centre
Ordinary People deals with the
slow, painful break-up of a wealthy
middle-class family, the Jarretts. As
the film begins, it is autumn. The
opening shots are of falling leaves
which are colorful but withering. It
is in this condition that we find the
Jarretts. Everything appears alright
on the surface, but behind the glib
exterior lies a family in a state of
chaos. The breakdown of the family
is due to the death of the older son
in a boating accident, which is
shown through flashbacks.
As in Interiors, even day-to-day
communication has become a problem; everyday interactions are
superficial, masking the confused
emotions of the family.
Conrad, the younger son and
survivor of the boating accident,
blames himself for his brother's
death. He lapses in and out of
states of depression, having already
tried to commit suicide. At home
his mother shuns him and at school
his violent outbursts estrange
friends who can't understand his
Beth, the mother, has slipped into a cocoon, displaying a gay ex
terior but unable to come to terms
with the realities that are shattering
her marriage and family of twenty-
one years. She can neither show
any affection for Conrad nor deal
with her son's death.
Calvin, the father, tries to keep
an uneasy truce between Beth and
Conrad but fails. As Conrad tells
him, "You don't see things, dad."
There is also a psychiatrist in this
troubled picture who helps Conrad.
Judd Hirsch plays him admirably
but the character is out of place in
this film. There is also an irritating
suggestion in Ordinary People that
psychiatric therapy is the answer to
modern ills.
Calvin and Conrad, who visit the
doctor, are "saved." Beth, who
refuses to see one, falls from grace.
This is simply an unacceptable conclusion in an otherwise intelligent
and sensitive film.
Another problem of the film is
that it focuses very heavily on the
boy, Conrad. What Ordinary People
needs, and what we would rather
see, is more of Donald Sutherland
and especially Mary Tyler Moore. It
is in their characters' personalities
and beliefs that the root of the family's problems lie.
Alvin Sargent's script, which is
adapted fom the novel by Judith
Guest, is often weak but Robert
Redford's direction and the
beautiful cinematography compensate immensely. Ordinary People is
Redford's first attempt at directing
a film, and it is by all means an
auspicious debut. While there is
nothing particularly spectacular
about Redford's approach, Ordinary People displays a remarkable
meticulousness and attention to
detail that is rare in a first effort.
What Redford has done is carve
out three complex, and therefore
interesting characters in Calvin,
Beth and Conrad Jarrett. The actors who portray them — Donald
Sutherland, Mary Tyler Moore and
Timothy Hutton, respectively — are
outstanding under Redford's direction. Sutherland, last seen in the
foolish Bear Island, has never been
Ordinary People is Timothy Hut-
ton's first motion picture appearance. His adolescent features
have an empathetic quality that is
just right for the part. And there is
Mary Tyler Moore, who was not
Redford's original choice to play the
character of Beth. But after seeing
Ordinary People, it is clear that no
other actress could have done better. With the most subtle inflections
she projects a malevolent intensity
that is chilling on the screen.
Ordinary People is one of the few
worthwhile movies currently playing in Vancouver. If you want to see
a thoughtful, sincere film. Ordinary
People should fit the bill. We are in
for a good fall and winter movie
season if Ordinary People is any indication of things to come.

Laurence characters come to life
Norma Edwards' solo performance of The Women of Margaret
Laurence is a moving portrayal of
the women of Manawaka, the fictitious town in Manitoba from where
Laurence draws many of her characters. It is a dramatic composite of
five lives encompassing the span
between childhood and old age.
It features Vanessa from A Bird in
the House, Stacey from The Fire-
Dwellers, Rachel from A Jest of
God, Morag from The Diviners and
Hagar from The Stone Angel.
The    Women    of    Margaret
Directed by Francess Halpenny
at Presentation House until Oct.
Edwards draws the audience
through the impressionable stages
of childhood, the insecurity of middle age and, finally, toward the fear
and acceptance of death. She performs her intriguing metamorphosis
using a chair, a table, a white shawl
and a pair of eyeglasses as her only
props. The effect is to eliminate
anything that might distract the audience's attention from Edwards
herself. It is in her facial features.
posture and tone of voice that the
physical transformation of the
character is made apparent. Thus,
the audience is immersed in the collective thoughts of a life cycle of the
feminine consciousness.
Edwards begins by mimicking the
shrill, inquisitive voice of 12-year-
old Vanessa MacLeod, a child
growing up in Manawaka during
the Depression. She portrays, with
great vigor and animation, the
child's fear of sleeping alone in the
darkness and of the sparrow that
she lets fly into the house. Noreen,
the family's mystical housegirl, tells
Vanessa that a bird in the house is
an omen meaning there will be a
death. When Vanessa's father, the
town doctor, dies of pneumonia,
she feels responsible. Yet she discovers that people live and die despite God, prayers and even doctors. Vanessa is shown as a child
questioning the existence of God
and the value of religion. She learns
of death that "it mattered but there
was no help for it." Hers are the innocent fears of a child who has no
past to evaluate and who is too
young to fear the future.
Edwards then transforms herself
into 39-year-old Stacoy MacAindra

children who has escaped from the
stifling atmosphere of Manawaka
into the confines of a Vancouver
household. Wearing only a slip and

exercises. As she puts on her skirt,
Stacey reflects over the lost years
when she was not restricted by the
lifestyle that has left her with middle-aged spread, sagging skin and
wrinkles. She imagines people
wondering, "Who in the hell would

Stacey's attempt to relive her
younger days is to indulge in sexual
fantasies while sitting under the
dryer at the beauty salon. She is
jolted out of her mental orgy by the
hairdresser returning to retrieve her
client. As she agonizes over her
purpose in life, Stacey realizes that
her love for her family is enough of
a reason to live. Her lot has actually
been better than that of many others. In spite of this reassuring
thought, Stacey cannot help but
fear the unknown, the time when
the fires of hell within her will die
leaving her children to carry on
Tucking her blouse into her skirt,
flattening back her hair and assuming a tense expression, Edwards becomes Stacey's 34-year-old sister,
Rachel. Rachel embodies the opposite dilemma of her sister in that she
is a lonely, repressed spinster
schoolteacher who has been saddled with their difficult mother.
Unlike Stacey, who has the relaxed, somewhat dishevelled look of a
woman who has fulfilled her role as
a wife and mother, Rachel's tight,
controlled features reveal a woman
who has repressed her desire to
break out of her shell of fear and insecurity. Years of loneliness have
made her into a woman with a
slightly irrational view of a life that
has not been completely fulfilled.
Then, as if to provide an answer
to the problems these women encounter, Edwards dons a pair of
eyeglasses and a leather vest to become Morag Gunn, the 47-year-old
writer. Of the five women, Morag
embodies the most orderly and
philosophical view of life. She has
compiled the past into a series of
photographs and into a prose that
STACEY . . . looking for a lover.
expresses the memories she has
created to justify her own life.
"Look ahead into the past, and
back into the future," she says; the
river of life flows both ways.
The long years of river-watching,
of an introspective search to understand what is past and what lies
ahead, have caught Morag in midstream. She, too, is trying to make
sense out of life. Her solution is to
create a past to help her look into
the future.
Finally, Edwards throws a shawl
over her shoulders, sits in a rocking
chair and speaks in a cracked voice,
thus transforming herself into Hagar Shipley. Hagar is a crotchety
woman in her nineties who faces
death with the terrifyingly fierce
spirit of someone too stubborn to
die submissively.
Reflecting over her long life as
the wife of the crude, simple-minded farmer, Bram Shipley, Hagar reproaches herself for the shame she
has allowed herself to feel for him in
the past. She reveals the wisdom of
an old woman at the end of the
road who realizes that pride can be
more dangerous than fear itself.
"Nothing can take away those
years," she says and thus she looks
ahead toward her own death.
She defies God in her dying moments by refusing to pray: "I've
held out this long," she says, "I
may as well hold out a while
longer." Hagar possesses a toughness of spirit that enables her to forget the mistakes of her past and
face death alone.
Edwards' versatile performance is
both an absorbing and inspiring
glimpse of different women trying
to cope with the various stages and
dilemmas of life. The show is definitely worth seeing both as a study
of the feminine psyche and as a
comprehensive look at the purpose
behind much of Laurence's writing.

Matthau and Jackson team reunited in spy flick
MATTHAU . . . plays hopscotch with CIA, KGB and Glenda Jackson.
Hopscotch is a nutty and witty
action comedy about an ex-CIA
agent's ingenious attempts to write
a damning expose of the American
intelligence agency while being pursued across Europe and North
America by both the Russians and
the Americans.
Directed by Ronald Neame
Playing at the Park
Hopscotch reunites Walter Matthau and Glenda Jackson, who first
worked together in House Calls in
In Hopscotch, Matthau is the
wise and amiable agent Miles Ken-
dig who defies the CIA when his
unconventional, but practical
methods in the spy field don't meet
the approval of company bigwigs.
He shreds his identification
records at the agency and leaves for
Australia, where he meets friend
and ex-colleague Glenda Jackson,
who is now a rich widow. Hot on
his trail are American agents who
have a paranoic fear that he will
defect to the Russians, and the
Russians, who desperately want to
recruit him.
He succumbs to neither side; instead,   he   decides   to   write   his
memoirs. But his revelations of
assassination attempts, bungled
coups and chicanery are received
with less than whole-hearted approval.
Hopscotch skims over details
about these covert operations, and
concentrates instead on Kendig,
who is always one step ahead of
everyone else.
Kendig's escapades are played
strictly for laughs. There are no
menacing villains or bad guys in this
film, only hearty caricatures and
cartoon characters: the Republican,
the therefore inevitably stupid head
of the CIA (Ned Beatty), the chief
of KGB in charge of Western operations (Herbert Horn), and inept,
self-righteous agents.
Hopscotch is easy, lightheaded
fun kept at an appropriately brisk
pace by director Ronald Neame.
Hopscotch is Matthau's movie all
the way. From the opening titles to
the concluding credits there is
never any doubt as to who the hero
and star of this film is, even with
credible supporting performances.
Glenda Jackson has a small part
in Hopscotch, but she makes the
most of it. She and Matthau are
funny and terrific, trading quips
back and forth while maintaining a
functional screen relationship. Both
have a cheerful rapport, and both
are a real delight. So is Hopscotch.
