Array Welfare 'bums' educated
By CHRIS GAINOR
The belief that a post-secondary
education is the best defence
against going on the welfare rolls is
false, according to a report on
B.C.'s welfare population.
The report, which was prepared
for the human resources department, shows that 40 per cent of
welfare recipients in the 25-34 age
group have had post-secondary
education and 40 per cent of
recipients in the same age group
have fathers in white collar occupations.
Most welfare recipients are
likely to be young and will
probably re-enter the job market
after a brief period, the report
shows.
A. study of university alumni
included in the report shows that
students are now more interested
in attending university for social
and intellectual values than career
orientation.
The   study,   entitled   Systemic
Origins and Institutional Relationships of New State-Sponsored
Dependency Populations, was
prepared by Robin Hanvelt of the
human resources department,
Maria Canive of the Company of
Young Canadians and Sandy
Lockhart, a professor from Trent
University.
A copy of the report, which has
not been made public, was obtained by The Ubyssey.
The report comes shortly after
human resources minister Bill
Vander Zalm promised to crack
down on employable welfare
recipients whom he claims are
taking a free ride and are not
seeking jobs.
But the report states that most
welfare recipients prefer to have a
job or enter job retraining, according to a survey of welfare
recipients.
"We found that the first choice
by both employables and unem-
pioyables on Social Assistance was
creation of jobs or job training. 70.6
per cent of employables and 41.6
per cent of the unemployables
chose these two policies from a list
of 10alternatives," the report says.
Only 13.7 per cent of employables
and 22.6 of unemployables chose
more welfare, the report claims.
"The youngest recipients do not
attend post-secondary institutions
and are predominantly blue collar
children while the 25-34 year age
group reveals approximately 40
per cent incidence of post-
secondary education and approximately 40 per cent incidence
of  fathers   in  white   collar   occupations.
"This indicates that recipients
from blue collar families do not
attend post-secondary educational
institutions and that there is a
rising incidence of recipients from
higher status families," the report
says.
In the study of 800 university
alumni, "the results were striking.
While 65 per cent of all respondents
were career-oriented upon en-,
tering, only 43 per cent reported
the career preparation aspects of
higher  education   an  advantage
after  they   entered,   the   work
world."
The study a'ssumes students are
career oriented or dependency
oriented, that is, toward social,
intellectual or existential values.
Career-oriented people generally
enter private industry while
dependency-oriented people prefer
to join the civil service or volunteer
groups.
People who graduated in 1943
prefer private enterprise work 59
to 41 per cent over public service

LONG WALK to parking lots, cafeterias, classes . . . anything, for that matter, is undertaken by students
leaving buildings Thursday. But trekkers had at least one  surprise when they came out - it wasn't raining.
Lack of polls fails to deter voters
Voting on two fee levy referenda
continued to be a haphazard affair
Thursday with only two of a
proposed four all-day polls open for
voting.
And only one poll, in SUB, was
open for the full time —10 a.m. to 4
p.m. — while one in Sedgewick
closed earlier in the afternoon.
Polls in Woodward library and the
War-Memorial Gymnasium did not
even appear.
Despite the smaller number of
places to vote at, however, more
students managed to make their
way to polls and vote than did
Wednesday — 893 Thursday, 643
Wednesday.
Students are being asked to
approve a levy of $1 each for both
the B.C. Student Federation and
the National Union of Students. A
quorum of 3,500 voters with a two-
thirds majority in favor are needed
for the referenda to pass.
An unscheduled day poll was
opened in the Gage residence
common block from noon to 2:30
p.m. Scheduled night polls were
open in Totem Park, Place Vanier
and Gage residences from 4 p.m. to
7 p.m.
Only four polls were open in
Wednesday's voting.
"I don't find it at all surprising,"
BCSF chairperson  Lake  Sagaris
said Thursday.
"It's hard enough to make
quorum at UBC anyways, without
having half of the polls closed," she
said. "It makes me really angry,
frustrated and unhappy."
Brent Tynan, acting Alma Mater
Society returning officer, said
Thursday the polls weren't open
because there weren't any people
to run them. It is Tynan's job to
ensure that polls are opened and
manned.
"I had people arranged for the
polls, but they didn't show," he

U councillor hits
UBC 'empire'
By MARK BUCKSHON
A B.C. Universities Council
member Thursday accused the
UBC administration of being "a
little empire" in not co-operating
in providing councillors with information about the university's
operations.
"UBC seems to be a little empire," said councillor Betty McClurg in an interview. "They (the
administrators) seem to think it's
an institution like none other. The
rules don't apply to UBC."
McClurg, speaking in support of
remarks by new councillor David
Helliwell that the council doesn't
know what it is doing because it is
unable to get enough information,
singled out the UBC president's
office as the core of the problem.
But the outspoken councillor did
not provide specific examples to
support her charges and her
claims were denied by council
chairman William Armstrong and
UBC vice-president William White.
Helliwell told the UBC senate
Wednesday, on resigning his seat
there, that "I must confess, in all
honesty that I don't think the
(universities) council knows where
it's at, and where it's going."
In an interview Thursday
Helliwell said the problem is occurring because the council doesn't
have enough information available
to make proper judgments on how
much money should go to which
university.
The council's principal function
is dividing provincial government
operating and capital grants
among the province's public
universities.
Helliwell said that before the
council can make its decisions it
needs to know about things such as
faculty-student    ratios,    space
utilization statistics and the
amount of money it costs to teach
students in different programs.
"There may be a bottleneck (in
getting information) in that the
universities may be reluctant to
give up the necessary information
the council needs to make
decisions," he said.
McClurg agreed with Helliwell's
statements but went a step further
in singling out the UBC administration.
She claimed UBC officials are
willing to provide answers to
specific questions but that they
take a rigid stand in their
responses. If officials can't answer
the question posed, she said, they
would not help by suggesting
alternative ways of getting the
information.
McClurg also claimed requests
for information from UBC always
have to be channelled through the
tightlipped president's office,
while officials at Simon Fraser
University and the University of
Victoria are more co-operative.
"I kind of think they just hope
we'll go away,"she said. "Perhaps
it's understandable. It's (UBC)
been there the longest."
White, who is UBC's senior
financial officer, said Thursday he
doesn't know what McClurg is
complaining about.
"I don't know of any instances
where we've failed to give information," he said.
"I haven't expected this (attack)," he said. "I'm frankly quite
mystified that you apparently have
this information. Certainly nothing
was communicated to the
university before by the council
before (about a lack of cooperation)."

'Cut pay, buy books'
Classics prof Malcom McGregor thinks professors should take
reduced salary increases to help beef up UBC's library budget.
McGregor, speaking at Wednesday's senate meeting, gave notice of
a motion "that senate advise the president that the dire needs of the
library should be the first charge on the ne,w budget when it is
allocated," by the university board of governors, probably in early
summer.
McGregor suggested two ways the university could add $500,000 —
the sum he described as the minimum the library needs to maintain its
current level of competence — to the library's budget.
"If the money applied to increases in salaries (to UBC faculty) last
spring was reduced, a couple of percentage points, it would have made
a lot of difference.
"Perhaps the faculty association might be willing to recognize that
it could reduce its demands in the interests of academic standing of
the university," he said.
Last year, the faculty asked for, and received, an average salary
increase of about 18 per cent. The average UBC full-time faculty
member now makes about $26,000 a year.
He also suggested that the money spent making UBC's formerly-
vertical direction signs readable could have been spent on the library.
Cutbacks in the library's budget forced it to stop ordering any new
books or journals in November. Page 2

No major
UBC hassles
—Armstrong
From page 1
"I would really like to take it up
with the chairman of the council,"
he said.
But Armstrong said he doesn't
know what McClurg is getting at.
"We've had no particular problem
in getting information," he said.
"Certainly there's been no major
confrontation."
"You know Betty as well as I
do," he said.
(Armstrong was apparently
referring to McClurg's earlier
outspokenness about council
openness. She has failed to get any
support from other councillors in
having council meetings open to
the public.
Meanwhile, Helliwell qualified
his earlier remarks that council
meetings must be open because the
Universities Act specifies most
meetings should be held in public.
He said, after attending his first
council meeting Thursday that
general oppenness would inhibit
the kind of communication between universities and councillors,
the lack of which he believes is
hindering the council's effectiveness.
But Helliwell said he would like
to see more opportunities for the
public to present opinions at open
meetings (currently done about
once a year) and said he would
favor the idea of having open and
closed portions of general council
meetings.
Currently, almost all council
meetings are completely closed to
the public.
Water No. 1
MICHIGAN (ZNS-CUP) - A
new study of U.S., drinking habits
has found that plain, old-fashioned
water is still the United States'
number one beverage.
The Michigan council on alcohol
reports it has compiled a list of the
most popular drinks in the U.S. and
water still comes out on top,
although other beverages are
catching up. After water, the study
says, the most often consumed
beverages were coffee, soda pop,
milk and then alcoholic drinks, in
that order
Th1 council ropor's t'.at each

NDU to become satellite U
By HEATHER WALKER
Notre Dame University will offer
degrees from the three coast
universities in two years,
Universities Council chairman
William Armstrong said Thursday.
Armstrong said NDU will cease
granting its own degrees at that
time.
He was responding to concern
expressed by NDU acting
president Val George that the
university might not continue to
exist as an autonomous degree-
granting institution.
Armstrong said the university's
immediate fate is still undecided
and will remain so until the NDU
board of governors decides its
response to the council's recommendations.
"Our recommendations were
fairly specific, and it's hard to tell
what their response will be.
They're a private institution and
are run by their own board," Armstrong said.
Earlier this month the
Universities Council made several
recommendations for NDU, most
importantly that the provincial
government continue to fund the
institution for the coming
academic year.
NDU's first- and second-year
courses would be handled by
Selkirk Community College, while
NDU continued to offer third- and
fourth-year courses.
Armstrong said the coast
degrees would be offered through
'correspondence courses,
tutorials, the media through radio
and television, and some face-to-
face lectures when there are large
enough audiences."
No specific .program has been
designed for the correspondence
degrees yet, Armstrong said.
But he said education minister
Pat McGeer will soon set up a task
force to examine the possibility of
the program.
Armstrong had earlier expressed approval of such a
program but had not said it would
definitely come into effect.
At that time, he said the program
would be similar to correspondence programs in England
and Australia.
First- and second-year courses
will be offered through the local
community colleges, he said, and
third- and fourth-years by
correspondence and individual
tutors in the areas where the
student is living. Library books
would be obtained through an
expanded inter-library loan
system, he said.
Although almost 80 per cent of
NDU's funds come from the
provincial government, it is still
considered a private institution
because it does not come under the
Universities Act and appoints, its
own board of governors, Armstrong said.
He said no definite decision had
yet been reached oh NDU's immediate future, but "probably
first- and second-year courses will
be divided between NDU and
Selkirk College. Selkirk will
probably take all the first-year
courses, and the two institutions
will divide responsibility for the
second-year courses."
George said Wednesday KDU
was willing to accept most df the
council's recommendations. These
include a plan to share administrative costs with other institutions in the area such as
Selkirk College and the Nelson
Vocational School, and handing
over the university's cpital assets,
lands and buildings to the
provincial government.

Bureaucrats cling to ancient ways
Students hoping that UBC's
registration procedures would be
brought up to 20th century standards will have to wait at least one
more year.
A UBC senate committee,
established to examine
registration procedures and
recommend improvements,
suggested that course schedules be
printed earlier in the year — no
date was specified in the report —
and that two more committees
dealing with registration be
established.
Jonathan Wisenthal, senate
member and English 100 chairman, asked why the committee did
not recommend pre-registration
because the final report states:
"There was a consensus (among
the university community) that
early academic advising be continued and that some form of pre-
registration should be introduced
at UBC."
Committee chairwoman Helen
McCrae replied that such a
recommendation would be
meaningless unless firm course
schedules are not established
earlier. Most are not established
until well after exams are finished.
Senate then tacked on an
amendment to the committee
recommendations that schedules
must be prepared, "preferably by
April 15" except "under unusual
circumstances." The committee's
other recommendations then
passed.
The other recommendations, as
amended by senate, arr: academic
advising and that the availability
of such advising be made more
evident to students;
• that administration president
Doug Kenny be asked to establish a
university-wide standing committee on registration, including
an investigation of the feasibility of
the method used at present to
assign registration times, of expanding the computer registration
system used in some faculties now,
and of introducing some form of
prep-registration at UBC.
McCrae excused the ineffectiveness of her commitee by
saying they were faced with "a
large task. We felt we could only
start ideas."
Book deadlines set
The recommendations of a
senate committee could ease some
of the problems UBC students face
each year in buying textbooks.
Senate voted at its Wednesday
meeting that April 1 will be the
deadline by which professors must
order books for the following
September, and books for the
spring term must be ordered by
Aug. 31.
There is currently no enforced
deadline, and profs who order their
textbooks during the summer often
cause students difficulties because
books do not arrive at the
bookstore until well after the fall
term has started. The deadlines
are an effort to avoid this problem.
The bookstore was also ordered
to report to senate-each November
the following information:
• the surplus or shortage of
books for a given course;
• the number of professors who
did not meet the April 1 and Aug. 31
deadlines.
• in the cases where shortages of
texts are reported;
• the dates all orders were
received by the bookstore;
• the date the order was passed
along to booksellers by the
bookstore; and
• the date the ordered books
arrived at the bookstore.
Individual faculties and large
departments are also being asked
to designate a liaison person to coordinate the ordering of textbooks.
The committee was established
by senate in October after student
senator Gordon Funt complained
of the inefficiency of the bookstore
and of profs in ordering books.
But, he said, "we need some
assurances at this time that there
will be a full four-year program at
Nelson, and we're not getting any
assurances."
If the NDU board does not accept
the recommendations, Armstrong
said, it is unlikely that the
provincial government will
provide any funds for the coming
year.
But he said, "they are still a
private institution and could try to
get funding elsewhere."
He said a decision on funding will
have to be made as soon as
possible, both because funds will
have to be allocated before the -
provincial budget is set and
because "it is unfair for the
students there not to know what
they can do next year."
"The students there will be
writing exams and leaving soon,
and they need to know what will
happen so they can make plans for
next year," Armstrong said.
Meanwhile, both the National
Union of Students and Canadian
University Press, a newsgathering
co-operative of Canadian
university and community college
student newspapers, have sent
telegrams protesting the government's policy on NDU to McGeer.
Both express support for "the
students, faculty and staff of Notre
Dame University and the people of
Nelson in the fight for NDU's
survival."
The NUS telegram reads in part:
"The need for post-secondary
education which serves all
Canadians is well recognized by
students in every province.
"The closing or crippling of
Notre Dame would be a repugnant
step away from such education. We
urge you to ensure the survival of
this university."
Summer job outlook
grim for many at UBC
By GREGG THOMPSON
When UBC students finish with
all the hassle of final exams and
essays, they'll have another
problem to worry about — summer
jobs.
A campus poll conducted
Thursday showed that few students
have "definite" summer jobs lined
up yet and even those with experience are unsure whether
they'll be accepted back by their
previous employers.
Students who have held part-
time jobs over the winter said they
were anxious, to find full-time
summer jobs but added they might
have to settle for continued part-
time work.
At least half those surveyed said
they had no connections or
previous experience to work on arid
held little prospect of finding a
decent summer job. -   :
UBC placement officer Cam
Craik said Thursday students
seeking summer employment this
year are going to find opportunities
slim.
"I would have to predict that
students are going to have a very
rough time finding work this
summer," he said.
"I would advise them to get out
knocking on doors and breaking
down the obstacles. It's not going
to be easy."
Craik said that while student
applications through his office
were sluggish, he expected to have
some 3,000 applicants on file by the
end of April.
But he was non-committal on the
number of jobs his office would be
able to provide for UBC students.
"I don't want to supply any
figures or say 'so many students
will find work'," because it's
political and inaccurate," Craik
said.
Craik said feedback from
students and employers using the
placement service was poor and as
a  result  the ratio  of successful
student applicants to unsuccessful
job hunters was inconclusive.
"For instance if we file a student
job application and Canada
Manpower also files that application and the student gets a job,
who gets credit for it?
"Or we might phone up a student
and his mother says he's at work,
well, we have no way of knowing
where that job came from, employers don't tell us and students
don't tell us.
"Our statistics can't be honest
because we just don't know," Craik
said.
He said Careers 76, the summer
employment program set up by the
provincial government, was the
largest summer employer on
paper but cautioned that no
specific results have yet showed
themselves.
"Itremains to be seen how much
money is going to be put into it, but
we haven't seen much in the way of
specific jobs yet," he said.
Meanwhile, federal manpower
minister Robert Andras said
Wednesday in Ottawa "it will be a
tough summer" for job-seeking
students, and added that no new
federal monies are being allocated
toward summer job-creation
programs.
Current federal summer employment programs will provide
work for some 12,000 young people
this summer.
The Opportunities for Youth
program, which would have
provided an additional 29,000
summer jobs for Canadian youth
this summer, was abandoned late
last year because of budgetary
considerations.
Craik urged students to come to
the placement office soon and not
to wait for the end of term.

Senate wallows in tokenism
The year in review, part 5 - the senate.
Tokenism is one of the best ways
of preventing real change.
This year, as every other year,
UBC's senate has excelled in
providing tokenism and preventing
real change.
To be fair to the 86 people who
meet every month in senate's
chambers, they can't really help it.
When the people who are on senate
in the first place haven't changed
significantly over the years, it's
hardly realistic to expect them to
initiate changes.
There's an aura of academia that
floats through the air in the stuffy
senate chamber — the academic
humor, the dry and obscure wit —
and it seems to affect what senate
does.
Senate, to understate the case,
does not rock the boat.
Instead, it floats smoothly along,
it carefully changes the wording of
any motions that are the least bit
contentious and it quietly shoves
other controversial things into
pre-packaged committees which
almost inevitably get lost in the
tangle of bureaucracy.
For example, these days it's
fashionable to pay lip service to the
goals of the women's movement.
Even administration president Doug
Kenny has publicly stated that he's
going to "improve women's lot" at
UBC, by setting up committees.
But last September, when senate's
ad hoc committee on enrolment of
women proposed some motions,
senate managed to change the
wording of most of the
recommendations to make them
utterly innocuous.
Senate also rejected the idea of
establishing a committee which
would have ensured that the
resolutions were actually
implemented.
More recently, senate Wednesday
approved several motions about the
campus bookstore. The motions
were designed to ensure earlier
ordering of books by faculty
members, so students wouldn't have
to wait until October or November
for books they needed in September.
But the motions, inoffensive as
they were, had first been proposed
to senate in October, 1974. It took
many months and another
committee before senate could
actually go ahead and approve the
motions.
And last month, a move by some
student senators to have senate look
at the way teaching is currently
evaluated on campus was shelved
into committee. It'll be a long while
before that one comes up again.
Things aren't likely to change on
senate during the near future.
The more "radical" of the 17
students on senate seem to believe -
that yes, real change can come about
by working through the system
which has so effectively stalled so
many things for so long.
And the other student senators
don't seem to realize that there's
anything wrong with the way senate
functions — or doesn't function —
now.
Students on campus could
improve   things   by   electing senate
representatives who will stand up
and speak out, who will try and keep
trying to prod senate into really
acting.
0
But the chances of it happening
with the current crop of student
senators are not particularly good.
And that's putting it mildly.
Next time around, let's try for
some vocal students who won't get
intimidated by the stuffy, old-boys
atmosphere of senate. And once we
get those people, let's keep prodding
them into action.

AMS was
dishonest
No one denies any society the
right to use honest, above-the-table
enticements to gain the cooperation of individuals in getting
otherwise  unpleasant  jobs  done.
Some may claim this as a
foundation of our society. Un-
forewarned failure to supply the
guaranteed rewards constitutes
sucking.
Goose Creek Symphony, one of
the most original, talented and
listenable bands in the area was
falsely promised to us in return for
our attendance in completing
necessary chores related to the
Alma Mater Society.
The excuses given certainly are
scanty, considering the gross
substitution made. Trooper is the
band I hear at every local dance,
blaring from every rock radio
station, buzzing around in my head
and making me sick to my
stomach. If opposites can be found
within such a field, Trooper and
Goose Creek would head the list.
But what's the explanation?
Certain unmentioned
arrangements were neglected. The
omissions were discovered Friday,
but posters didn't go up until
Monday. Public apologies were
made to Goose Creek. • We, the
students, were ignored.
The AMS has sucked us in and
rubbed our noses in it.

Love
This letter is in regard to Harold
Mann's opinion as expressed in
The Ubyssey Tuesday. I am
striving for greater communication in the interest of
campus romance.
However, I would disagree with
your statistics concerning the ratio
of males to females on this campus
— it is the 'scarce' male population
who are seemingly elusive in their
actions toward creating and
maintaining a higher level of
sociability.
As a result, I agree that there is a
certain level of frustration experienced by myself and many of
my female friends and I can assure
you that I have many female
friends — too many. That being the
case, I would like to continue a
discussion     of     our     mutual
philosophies and various solutions
to them.

By IAN MORTON
At this stage of 1976, the theatres
of Vancouver, like many other
artistic institutions in B.C., still
have not situated themselves
comfortably into the hands of the
new Social Credit government.
This is especially the case of such
struggling new groups as
Tamahnous. The general feeling is
BACKSTAGE ... facing,questions
of space and money but still playing.
one of uneasiness. Most groups
seem to wish the NDP were still in
power. They now wonder how
much aid will Grace McCarthy cut,
and what aid she will cut. The
answers have yet to be provided.
In answering my questions, Ed.,
Astley of Tamahnous seemed to
stress the purpose of his group's
work, in order to qualify his
feelings on their financial security.
Being what Astley calls a
"theatrical-educational community" (workshopping at
numerous schools), for 10 months
of the year, and doing mostly local
drama, Tamahnous needs much
outside support.
So far, Tamahnous has been
receiving grants from OFY, LIP,
Canada Counctf, the B.C. Cultural
Fund and UBC's Koerner Fund.
Asked if he has been happy with
the aid, Astley said, "Well, the $125
per week we have been getting is
great compared to Toronto. We
have been, what we consider, well-
paid for 10 months. But it now looks
like Grace McCarthy is going to cut
us off some. So far we have had our
first instalment of $7,000 from the
provincial government, but we've
got another 10 to go, and it doesn't
look too promising."
The picture from Canada Council
is not too promising, either.
"We've gotten $26,000 this year as
compared to $8,000 last year, but
that's thanks to one lady. Now they
say 'you've gone as far as you can
go' and we're being cut off. It's the
same story nationally — for the
small theatres, at least."
The result seems to be that
Tamahnous' educational program
will be nullified. "Vancouver is not
a theatre town, except for Y. H. Lui
and his Star Spectacular series.
It's an indigenous theatre crowd
that's not growing too well — that's
why we're into the education. But
we're being forced to cut off now.
And the same thing is happening
with the Playhouse."
Another problem with
Tamahnous is that, after being
what is known as a "Poor Theatre"
(the emphasis being on the actor,
not the scenery) and finding their
form to be getting "too
imaginative," they now need to
become more advanced. And with
a shortage of theatre space, that is
not easy.
With places like the Vancouver
East Cultural Centre booked up
solidly, and for only three-week
runs, what is called the Vancouver
Theatre  Alliance  has  emerged.
Tamahnous, along with West Coast
Actors, the Arts Club, City Stage
and the Playhouse, are now
working for a False Creek theatre
that would be, in fact, a West End
Cultural Centre. City planners
have okayed the idea, but whether
or not the money can be raised for
it, is quite another matter.
Camilla Ross, at the Playhouse,
stressed space shortage as the
Number One problem. The
Playhouse Theatre, like VECC,
can only schedule itself for three-
week runs, and there is no chance
of touring companies playing
there. Equus could have run
almost interminably, it was such a
hit, but there is no way the
schedule could be altered.
. Asked about the Playhouse's
money situation, Mrs. Ross was
quick with her figures; 28% from
Canada Council, 17% from the B.C.
Cultural Fund, 6% from six
municipalities, 35% box office, 14%
corporate fund raising, and the
rest from private donations. She
said, "The provincial government
hasn't got it together yet, though.
Ernie Hall (former provincial
secretary) formed an Inter-Marks
Board for the NDP government, to
advise him on who and what to
fund, but now with the Socreds, the
staff is gone."
Mrs. Ross said that city council
has been very helpful, especially
with the new bylaw passed that
allows developers to build higher
buildings, but under the condition
that they put more money into
community access.
But like the much smaller
Tamahnous, the Playhouse is
feeling the pinch for wanting to
grow. Their acting school, for
instance, is doing very well as the
only acting schoorper seywest^rf
the Lakehead. But high equity
costs, along with>*spae© shortage
and changing governments, have
put it in a fairly precarious
position. The same is holding true
for the Playhouse's Theatre-
Education and Explorations
programs.
Bill Millerd of the Arts Club says
that salaries are going up from $65
per week to $145 at his theatre —
"and we're already above the
minimum." The result is more and
more non-equity people are being
given job consideration.
Asked about the various grants
the Arts Club receives, Millerd
said, "Canada Council's grant is
small, really small, for our size.
We're pleased with the Provincial
Cultural Fund so far, but city
council's grant is small — not
nearly adequate for the size of our
organization. There are sympathetic ears at city council, but on
the whole, there is great
inequality. It's like they're trying
to clump all the small theatres at
the bottom. But there are new
people who are aware of the
problems, and as far as city
council is concerned, things can
only get better."
The Arts Club is doing well now
— with its 200-seat capacity, and
$2.50-$4.75 ticket range. Now
playing David Fenario's On the
Job to good houses, the Arts Club is
winding up what Millerd calls the
"profitable half of the cycle" — the
stretch between October and
March when Vancouver weather is
foul, and people like to frequent the
theatres.
It's in spring and summer that
the crowds begin to wane. One
wonders why then, is Millerd
taking his chances on a lesser
known, Canadian drama.
"Right now we are exploring as
much Canadian material to do as
possible, but the American syndrome is very strong. In fact, our
problem now is to educate
audiences by letting them at least
form their own opinions. And we
have to do it."
Regarding the space problem,
Millerd felt assured that it was
slowly being rectified. "The
theatregroup in Vancouver is quite
cohesive — there's much more
friction in Toronto. So" that
situation doesn't look too bleak."
The West Coast Actors, now in
existence for one and a half years,
have a rather different situation on
their  hands.  Speaking   as  West

Photos blow up past tales
By JOHN MORRIS
Photography always teeters on the borderline of art. The exhibit 11 Early B.C.
Photographers, now on display at the
Vancouver Art Gallery is a fine example of
—john morris photos
how precariously that line winds through
photography.
The pictures shown are the first set of
acquisitions for the gallery's new
photographic collection. The negatives
come from several institutions, but
primarily from the Vancouver Public
Library's archives, which are quite extensive. The pictures were chosen by
Christopher Varley, of the gallery, and Fred
Douglas, a local professional photographer.
They say in their introductions to the exhibit
catalogue that the pictures were chosen
when the organizers thought they "could see
a revelation" in the particular image.
Frankly, not every picture has the air of
revelation about it; some could have been
left in the archives for the purposes of an art
gallery display. The Steveston tram in a
Richmond field and the numerous shots of
1912 New Westminster store interiors could
and should be displayed somewhere else.
Aside from these that seem of only historical
interest, anda few which will not transcend
snapshot status, the show is fascinating.
The bulk of the pictures were taken during
the period from 1900 to 1930, though the show
nominally covers the era from 1890 to 1940.
Photographs have an immediate impact on
one's senses in a way no writing could, so
this show has a unique ability to allow us to
peek back into the generations. Whole
families peer from the wall, revealing
themselves as no other medium could allow.
Almost all of B.C.'s recorded history lies on
this side of the line drawn by the invention of
photography, and these photos show how
much more vivid our knowledge is of the
time since the first stabilized photographic
images.
The photos of people are the most effective. This is partly because the viewer
can become involved in the images more
quickly. For all the superficial differences
of the figures — clothes, hairstyles,
decorations, etc. — the faces are all
hauntingly human. That effectiveness is
also due partly, in this case, to the particular skills of several of the
photographers.
The best of all the portraits are the series
by Percy Bentley, Stuart Thompson and
Claire Downing, who like most of the 11,
were commercial photographers. It is
particularly apparent in the composition of
the photos of these three that their concern
for the image goes beyond the normal
commercial interest. Bentley, Thompson
and Downing should rank with the likes of
August Sander (who documented Germans
at home and in the United States between
1900and 1940) and Robert Frank (the Swiss
whose landmark photo-essay, The
Americans, was produced in the 1940's).
Some of the photos, though taken under less
trying circumstances, resemble the style of
the Depression photos by the American
Farm Security Administration
photographers.
Obviously the proportions of the B.C.
photographers' work does not equal their
better-known contemporaries, but some of
the same motivations lie behind their work.
The pictures here are not selfconscious or
adorned, but they show a successful attempt
to interpret while documenting. More importantly, they exude an attitude of acceptance; judgment is never passed.
Thompson portrays, in turn, a group of
detectives with various murder weapons in
hand, a class of hairdressers and a pair of
army cadets, standing mechanically, as if to
be inspected by the viewer. He also has a
'before and after' pair of photos of McGavin
breadmen, in their old and new uniforms,
respectively.
Bentley's portraits of B.C. Tel employees,
commissioned by the company in the late
20's, are masterpieces. The waitress, the
repairman, the cable-layer, are all in the
fine tradition of documentary photography,
that, by virtue of its composition and por
trayal, can transcend the barriers of craft
and justify being called art. If you go to the
exhibit for nothing else, it is worth it to see
Bentley's work.
All of the negatives were lovingly handled
and printed. Fred Douglas deserves credit
for the masterful reproductions. Where the
composition of the photos is uninteresting,
one can derive esthetic pleasure sheerly
from the range of tones in the prints. It is
rare to find a photo display of any age which
is so superb technically, and photographers
should form a healthy respect for Douglas'
skill and devotion. It shows, once again, the
enormous power of Black and white
photography.
The gallery has been good enough to print
some of the photos in two of their
publications: Vanguard, their tabloid
newsletter, which costs 25c and in the
superbly printed catalogue, which is a steal
at $2.00.
The show consists entirely of photographs
taken for other than artistic purposes. It
illuminates the nature of photography to see
which images now rise from the functional
and emerge as art.

Eagle Beaver comes together
Eric Ivan Berg talks with Ann Griffin,
Derek MacNeill and Glen Sherman,
collectively known as Eagle Beaver.
Students in the creative writing department's song writing workshop, Eagle
Beaver play and compose their own music,
what Berg describes as folk rock.
Page Friday: Well we've finally cornered
Eagle Beaver, you've come to roost . . . but
name itself, how did you arrive at such an
attention getting logo?
Ann Griffin: Well a friend who was
visiting me, Bruce, an excellent jazz pianist,
thought up Eagle Beaver. It really looked
nice on paper. We'd all spent four hours in a
restaurant the night before trying to think
up a name. So it happens we decided upon a
good one.
PF: Which ones are the Beavers? I understand that you Ann are the only Eagle.
Ann: That's right. I'm an American from
Alaska and California. I've been here two
years going to school, couldn't .stand the
States so I just had to come to Canada.
Derek: We met here last year, about a year
now. We met when I was doing a little
concert at the poetry readings here at UBC.
He came over afterwards, said "Let's get
together" and we slapped each other on the
back and said "Fine!" Then we started
working out some things together. We did a
little work around town last fall and in
January we got together with Ann and we're
now a   . . . triumverate?
PF: Well that was a creative writing
department sponsored poetry reading and
you are all now members of Doug Bankson's
creative writing Songwriting Workshop.
How long has it been going on?
Glen: Well this is the first yeafr for it and
hopefully not the last. I guess it's just sort of
a gamble by Doug to see if it would work,,
and I think it's worked quite well.
EAGLE BEAVER ... left to right, Derek MacNeil, Ann GriffiMaienShermarr
 '  —tricia rankin photo
PF: Could you describe the Workshop
itself, Derek, how many people are in it and
where are they musically headed?
Derek: There were ten people but one of
them left. It's a fantastic experience to be
able to bring songs and have the class give
critical responses to them. It's for me the
best workshop I've ever had!
Ann: There's lots of collaboration between
the people who write music and those who;
just write the words. For the most part
people write words and don't know much of
music. We do a couple of songs in our Eagle
Beaver concerts where the words were
written, and the music, by people in our
class.
Derek: So we're pushing other people's
music with our own.
PF: At the last workshop concert, done by
the entire class, I heard a lot of the other's
songs and they were quite well strung out.
Doug himself has told me that there are a lot
of solo lyricists in your class and that there
was a dearth of songwriter musicians like
yourselves?
Glen: I think if it got a little larger it would
make things more difficult. I think the size
of the workshop right now is perfect — that
they may have to do is split it up (next year)
into a couple of blocks if it gets popular. I
don't see any reason why it shouldn't get
popular. More and more kids are coming up,
just like in hockey, more rookies keep
cropping up.
PF: Currently what are you doing? The
frat houses?
Derek: Campus oriented gigs, we really
haven't gone outside the campus yet.
Ann: Well, there's the different music too.
All of us have played at clubs. We've played
the popular "You Are The Sunshine or My
Life" type stuff. Even gone as bad as
"Rocky Mountain High" garbage.
Ann: We're trying to expose our own
songs and sometimes it's kind of hard. But a
coffeehouse situation is excellent because
the people will sit down. They may be fans of
Joni Mitchell, but they're a listening crowd
and have been so far. They don't want to
dance to Disco music. This point is really
good to us because we get a response from
the audience. People come up to us at intermission and between sets and after the
show and give us all critical remarks. It's
been a development, it's been a growing
thing. We've just started from scratch with
all our new songs and we've got to see how
people respond to them. Because we can't
tell by ourselves because we're a little bit
biased as they're our own songs.
PF: Quite true, and musicians starting
out on the grind have little protection
themselves. What about the Vancouver
Musician's Union? Do any of you Eagle
Beavers have any understanding of how it
functions? Well does it protect young people
like yourselves or hinder?
Glen: I think if you're starting out it can
be a bit of a hindrance simply because the
fees are so high, and once you're out of the
Union you really have to pay — like if you're
in and you drop out for some reason or fail to
pay your Union dues — weD to get back in it
is pretty hard too.
PF: According to Canadian content, such
as Joni Mitchell, what other Canadian
musicians do you find influence your
musical work to any appreciable degree?
Ann: Well, Bruce Cockburn . . .
Derek: ... I'm influenced by Lightfoot
and have been for about ten years now as
well as by — dare I say Leonard Cohen? I
think what he does he does well. Even his off
key stuff, that's great. It's his style, he's
perfected his style, and he's aware of his
limitations.

Roth recycles rotting rubbish
By RICHARD CURRIE
What would you do if you had
some scraggly sweaters, junkable
jerseys, mangled magnetic tape,
or frowsy feather dusters? Recent
surveys show that most of you
would toss the entire lot in the
trash. But Evelyn Roth wouldn't.
She's persuaded 10 miles of
videotape to mesh together in the
form of a mammoth canopy for the
Vancouver Art Gallery. Another
two miles made a car cozy —
complete with matching accessories. Disgraced dusters have
"cleaned up their acts," under Ms.
Roth's supervision, and become
chic evening capes. She has
crafted a suit of musical armor and
wired an electric dress. Evelyn has
philanthropically helped homeless
sweaters to lead useful lives as
drapes and hairy furniture. Fifteen
found themselves united as a
sweater, 30 feet in diameter, for a
fashionable family of four.
Ms. Roth does not limit her
knitting and crocheting to just wool
and video tape. Epochs have been
spent crocheting, stitching, and
knitting tempestuously in order to
transform jersey, fur and leather
into what she calls "sculptural
wearables." She's done things that
would make sheep sit up and applaud. (When she worked at UBC's
Fine Arts Library she'd wear
clothes so unusual that people
would line up waiting to see what
she'd have on when she came out
for lunch!)
Evelyn Roth is really into her
work . . . literally. And so are
others. The Evelyn Roth Moving
Sculpture Co., a group of dancers
including Ms. Roth, get inside her
jersey reknits of Elastic Spots, Sea
Mollusks, and spider weblike
creations, giving them a haunting
yet inviting quality of anthromo-
promorphism. "These sculptures

Drama
From PF 2
Coast Actors' treasurer, Jane
Heyman (also a director and actress) told me how this was the
first company in Vancouver,
besides Holiday Theatre, to be
founded by experienced performers. "It was the first time an
actor said, 'Hey, we're getting
stagnant. Actors are more than
puppets!' — and did something
about it."
The result is, most company
members have some administrative function with West
Coast Actors. But they are all
working out of their own homes, as
they have no offices. And as they
continue to grow as a theatre
company (which they are doing in
more than reputation) that cannot
last for long. They need help.
West Coast Actors are receiving
"adequate" grants from the
various governmental agencies,
and have a special "non-profit"
contract with Equity that allows
for an even split of the earnings
between all the actors. But West
Coast is operating with an 80 to 90
per cent expenditure (theatre
rental, personal expenses,
scenery. . .) leaving only a 10 to 20
per cent overhead. And without an
appointed public relations employee, local fundraising is
nonexistent.
To install any administrative
head at West Coast Actors, would
cost them somewhere in the neighborhood of 10 to 15 thousand dollars
per year — and they just haven't
got that kind of money.
Again the problem of space is
brought up. Though West Coast
Actors and the Arts Club have
recently co-produced the two
successful shows, Whisper to
Mendelsohn  and  The  Imaginary
Invalid, the box office has not been
providing the subsidy West Coast
needs.
"If The Sea had sold out every
night, for our entire run, we'd still
only make up 50% of what we had
spent," says Jane Heyman.
Heyman also feels that West
Coast Actors have been conservative in what they need and
ask from grants. "I believe in
subsidy, but I also believe that you
have to make your own way down
the road to real enterprise. There
comes a point where you must take
the responsibility of your
aspirations. . ."
West Coast Actors, in keeping
with their principles, have never
applied for a LIP grant because
"most of our actors are in good
demand."
At the new David Y. H. Lui
Theatre it is still too early to tell
what problems are going to loom
largest in the future. Certainly the
fact that Lui well overshot his
budget in building the theatre on
Richards Street is not one to allow
him and his partner, Peter Cowley,
their own movement and balance,
but also to develop sensitivity to
the movements of others. Even the
shyest people discard their
inhibitions and enjoy being enveloped and animated in the
sculptures." Her philosophy — be
dynamic. Let the material, the
artist, and the surrounding environment meld and move together
in a symphonious synergetic
celebration. From, function and
founder act as one.
Right now Evelyn's working with
the Camouflage Crew at Habitat
Forum at Jericho. Her mission —
to take the rough edges off the old
hangars and to wrestle the
resounding echoes to the ground.
Evelyn and the crew, many are
local artists, are doing this with an
undernourished budget along with
banners, flags, and hangings made
from masses (15,000 square yards)
of factory rejected nylon material
from back east — dirt cheap!
Themes for their work include the
to relax. But the disadvantages of
being the only privately-run
theatre in Vancouver were easy for
Cowley to express.
"Being a privately-owned
theatre, we depend totally on ticket
sales — and our problem is, we
can't make up the difference on
revenues. (The Lui Theatre tickets
are priced at $7.50, for a single
series.) In the openly-owned
theatres you can keep your prices
low by subsidies. But that gives the
public a warped sense of what the
price should be. We're of the
opinion—if it's good, it's worth it."
Though his partner, David Lui,
has enjoyed great success with
shows like Jacques Brel, Kurt
Weill and Godspell, Cowley expressed some concern in that that
short history is not enough to live
on. However, he also felt that
Vancouver really does have a
thirst for the musically-oriented
productions, the Lui Theatre will
concentrate on.

In hangar #5 they're making a Roth

yet, why not get in on the act as a
volunteer and lend "a hand with the
work?
Evelyn Roth's tastefully crazy
career in the art world started
about 10 years ago. From '66 to '69
she was involved in the goings-on
of a collective of Vancouver
dancers, poets, designers, artists,
filmmakers, and musicians called
INTERMEDIA as a dancer and
designer. In 1970 the collective
broke up but some of the members
have worked sporadically with Ms.
Roth since then, most notably with
the E. R. Moving Sculpture Co.
Her work came of age and left
the Boho Dance realm of New Art
in '71 when she displayed her work
at the New York Museum of
Contemporary  Crafts.   Here  the
was with Pamela Hawthorne,
managing director for the New
Play Centre. The Centre, now in its
sixth year, concentrates on the
playwright's final script,
criticizing and adjusting it in a
workshop of actors and directors
until it is ready for production. The
New Play Centre has produced
some 20 works in the past three
years.
Mrs. Hawthorne was not too keen
on the idea of speaking of money.
Among the major governmental
subsidies NPC receives, she
named the Koerner, MacLean,
Hamber, Spencer and du Maurier
Foundations.
Before I could respond to that,
Mrs. Hawthorne said, "But we've
got no sour grapes there (regarding outside funding) — if that's
what you're looking for. Each of us
in the NPC is in it for the love of it,
not the money. As it's turned out,
we get paid for our time, not much,
concrete of a new art form began to
set, providing a strong foundation
for a mushrooming art movement.
Since then she's continued
having exhibitions at the VAG as
well as the Art Gallery of Ontario,
Tokyo's American Centre, Expo
'74, Amsterdam's Stedelijk
Museum and the Portland Art
Museum to name but a few places.
She's been awarded by the Canada
Council and has spearheaded
recycling forums across Canada,
the U.S.A., Japan and Europe.
She's even held her own Roller
Derby!
In short, Evelyn Roth is unbounded. If you'd like to know
more about her work, The Evelyn
Roth Recycling Book is hot off
Vancouver's Talonbook's presses
loaded with ideas that'll serve as
springboards for your own.
As the sign on her bike says,
"WATCH OUT FOR THE
RECYCLER."
but we aren't in it for the money."
The New Play Centre originated
with UBC Creative Writing
professor, Douglas Bankson, (then
teaching playwriting, as he still
does) when he was getting inundated by playwrights from all over
the province who had no place to
turn to with their scripts.
With Sheila Neville, and a
Koerner donation of $500, he
started the Centre— as a workshop
form of play critique. But since
then, NPC has developed to a point
where it involves some 25
workshops per year, and goes over
about 130 scripts in that time.
NPC seems content to be the
outlet for B.C. playwrights it is, in
spite of whether or not the money is
good. As far as theatrical
organizations go, the NPC is admirable, insofar as its "in-it-for-
the-love-of-it" attitude would
probably not let it falter, if subsidies did.

Vaseline jars celebrated
By DAVID MORTON
"Your assignment for this week," said the
fuzzy-faced PF editor from behind his
glasses, "is to interview an aspiring local
artist."
I searched the little fellow's face for signs
of drunkeness, but it was only Tuesday. We
only go drinking on Thursdays, when we
have to lay out the paper.
"You're crazy!" I screamed, "there's no
such thing as a local artist. Nor an aspiring
one at that."
But he was serious.
I had never talked to a real artist before,
and I was trying my damnedest to get out of
it. I. imagined myself in some dingy cafe,
trying' to talk to this poverty stricken individual about Pablo Picasso and the ideal
artistic expression.
Of the three people I asked about local
artists, two people mentioned a woman by
the name of Gathie Falk. I was told by these
people that she had been giving art shows in
Vancouver for the past few years, and had
been enjoying much recognition of late. I
learned that she was currently showing
some of her latest work at the Bau-Xi
Gallery in the city.
So down I went to the Bau-Xi to check her
out.
To be frank, I thought the show was weird.
It consisted of some forty drawings of
bootcases containing such everyday objects

From PF 3
Glen: I think I'm getting off a lot on
Murray McLauchlin.
Ann: Also, I think I like a lot of what Anne
Mortifee's doing right now. Her trip is just
right on, I mean I really admire the woman.
She's an excellent actress. She just has a
new message. And she has a new idea, a new
thing which is just fantastic and it's a one-
woman show! I think she's great.
Derek: What Pied Pumkin and Anne
Mortifee are doing right now to the music
scene is opening up the industry and exposing it as not just a mechanical and
limited black and white thing — but they're
putting spirit into the music. I think Vancouver as a musical force is small in
relationship to the international music
scene, but I think it can grow. I think there's
a lot of spirit in Vancouver.
PF: I think there's a lot of talent here too.
Another subculture of sorts?
Glen: Yes, something that's opposed to
their style and I think that's what's
developing now. Now who knows when that
develops and flowers then another type of
subculture might start to emerge —
something completely different again.
PF: I'm still thinking in terms of you as a
young group growing up. What problems,
what real hassles have you experienced? Is
getting publicity flack one of the major ones
or is it simply getting dates in respectable
places for feedback?
Glen: In terms of the music itself I think
we are still in the embryonic stages. I don't
think we have encountered the problems
yet, we haven't even reached the problems
yet.
Derek: We're more or less still concerned
with audience responses because basically
we are going original material. A lot of
people are coming and hearing our music
for the first time and they're not familiar
with it. So it takes a little time for our music
to grow in their heads. We're having no
as cups and saucers, apples, and vaseline
jars. The cases were drawn frontally, but
often Gathie gave sides to them, adding a
strange perspective. Each little object
seemed to command the same amount of
meticulous detail with both pencil and
eraser.
But what was she getting at? What was
she trying to do? Isn't art supposed to say
something? What was in Vaseline jars? I
kept wanting some cosmic message to jump
out at me, but nothing happened.
Gradually, however, I began to realize
that Gathie was not trying to reveal any
prophetic vision in her art. It became clear
that all she was doing was celebrating the
existence of the everyday, the ordinary. In
I talked to Gathie not so much about her
art, but her recent climb into prominence.
A large part of her artists training came
from the Department of Art Education at
UBC, where her main interest was in
painting. Some of her teachers here urged
her to pursue a career in art, but she faced a
common problem of all artists, namely
money.
"Unless you are recognized in the field,
there is no way you can go on."
Did she benefit at from art school?
"Well it is dreadfully hard to teach art. All
you can really learn are the skills and
techniques to make a competent artist. But
you can't stimulate the imagination, at least
over a long period. A good teacher can give

the precise details of these objects, she was
inserting a reverence into them. There was
even a light whimsical humour to the
drawings. It was a positivism that was
particularly refreshing in the light of much
of Modern Art.
When I talked to Gathie on the phone, she
mentioned that she had been doing a large
number of interviews in the past week. The
weariness of these formal discussions and
the "same old questions" came across in
her voice, but I felt a genuine warmth
through that cold exterior.
problems getting club dates and folk concert
things, we're getting them all the time.
We're performing at least once a week but
still it's those audience's responses to our
music which we need. We're diversified,
that's one thing about this group. Ann is into
jazz and blues so far and orients towards
classical music as a (UBC) musie student.
I'm basically folk and Glen also.
Ann: And rock and roll!
Ann: We're trying to get away from that
original folk style of saying "I, me, this, it
and I Cry All Nite When My Baby Leaves
Me!" We're trying to get into a song like
Glen's story from the bible "Rachel." Derek
has a love song "How Many Times Must We
Be found Like This." We're trying to take a
piece of art and set it on the table and work
at it and form it that way, rather than the
usual. Like we mean it!
PF: You compliment each other quite
well with a wide variety of instruments, isn't
that so. Ann, you yourself play the guitar the
Diane and the flute and what else?
Everybody sings?
Ann: Yes, singing that's my concentration
as a music student here at UBC.
PF: Derek, you play the lead guitar and
what else?
Derek: Twelve and six string axe and do a
little bit of percussion, piano and flute — but
that's just totally on the side.
PF: And Glen in the Beaver you play . . .
everything?
Glen: Yeah, I just do all the acoustic and
electric guitars and a bit of the piano and
harpoon. Well yeah I'm definitely the body
in the group. I definitely display the
muscles. The legs and the muscles and just
sort of straighten the handle up.
Ann: We have an excellent bass player,
who plays with us when he can, who should
be recognized too . . .

Derek: Don Durazio right. He's getting
married off in a couple months so he won't
be with us long. We'll be back to the original

you temporary inspiration but only for
awhile."
After graduating from UBC, she taught at
an elementary school in Burnaby for twelve
years. She feels that this experience affected her work only indirectly. "Only to the
extent that any job affects your life, did it
affect me."
When she first felt that her work was
worth showing, she approached several
galleries on the lower mainland. She was
turned down several times until a gallery

may be. Well Eager Beavers what about the
future? Like the funky Pied Pumkins who
have pressed an album locally and sell it
locally to family, fans and friends — do you
see yourselves eventually trying to do a
local album like that.
Derek: Well ultimately that's what we're
all aiming for.
Ann: Yeah it's a local feeling, a local
thing. I'd like to see Vancouver music
happen. To see fewer people brought in
from, let's say the U.S., ahem!
PF: Now what about your reactions to the
Canadian Radio & Television Commission's
30 per cent Canadian music quota for radio
stations. It has tremendously increased the
number of Canadian groups on the airwaves, both those groups who had been
making it and 4hose groups who wouldn't
have been making it without the eager
beaver quota. Do you think the ruling is (a)
good or (b) bad or (c) is promoting
nationalism in an artificial way or
whatever? Warning; this is a springloaded
question.
Glen: In a way I can see where it fails. It
fails when you have Canadian groups
playing national music. Now what's the use
of promoting them? Why not go to the
national music to begin with? Otherwise
you're just hearing the music once removed
and that's where it fails. I think where it
does succeed is where you have legitimate
Canadian artists reflecting legitimate
Canadian needs, whatever they are, with
legitimate national environmental issues all
coming through in the music.
PF": Well folks this is an open forum ending — is their absolutely anything else
you'd like to say about the Beaver?
Derek: About our tapdancing routines and
everything else you know?
Ann: Yes, particularly since I'm from
Alaska.
PF: Well in Alaska you simply have to
tapdance to stay warm.   .
Ann: That's right — especially while
you're skating.
trust themselves yet" decided to give her a
"one-man show."
That was in 1965, and it was around then
that she decided to devote her time entirely
to her art. On the strength of her own
savings and a Canada Council Grant she
retired from teaching, rented a studio, and
began applying herself.
Recognition from the National Gallery in
Ottawa came through a series of events. The •
Canada Council makes a practice of
travelling across the country every year
looking into the work of the artists they are
supporting. If the work is particularly
outstanding, the coun.cil makes recommendations to the Gallery. Gathie also had a
close circle of friends whose names were
respected by the Gallery, who made
recommendations.
In December of 1975, Gathie Falk's work
was shown there, and a few pieces were
bought by the Gallery. Next November, they
will organize a travelling show of her
drawings as well as her Herd of Horses.
I asked Gathie if she ran into any other
problems aside from financial and
struggling to be recognized.
"Not really. One thing that people always
ask me, though, is whether being a woman
hindered my career, but I don't think there
was any problem."
She seemed quite placid when talking
about obstructions to her career. She did not
seem willing to publicize any personal
vendettas on people. The impression I
seemed to get was that she, had anticipated

pencil and eraser drawing.
all these problems before setting out and
more or less accepted them as inevitable.
What could be the reason for Gathie
Falk's recent success? The answer, I think,
lies in her philosophy of art.
"My only philosophy of art is that it is not
the most important, thing in the world."
This refreshingly antagonistic remark is
so totally against all the heaviness and the
profundity that seem to be associated with
art, that it could be the reason why people
are beginning to look at the work of Gathie
Falk.
Nevertheless, she is still aware of the
plight of the up and coming artist, and I
asked her if she had any advice for these
people.
"Yeah. Keep going, work regularly, and
don't be discouraged by critics. If you keep
at it then someday you will be recognized."
Vincent van Gogh once said that when the
artist finally has his work recognized, it is
the hardest realization for him to come to.
He was referring to the public criticism that
he was suddenly thrust into, and he could
never take this to his own advantage. But
Gathie does not take her criticism too
seriously unless a valid point is brought out.
"Usually I have a feeling of what is wrong
with my work, and if it comes out in the
criticism then I take it into consideration."
As to the recognition, it is not so much a
hard realization, but a necessity.
"Recognition is nice because it lets you
keep going, but it does have its drawbacks. I
think ever since I was a teenager I anticipated the dangers of being exposed like
that. You no longer have- the privacy that
you used to. And you have to be wary of the
friends that you make. There are always
people that want to know you just because of
your art."

Prirlr artsartsartsartsartsartsartsarts
Actors graduating
By TREVOR JONES
Touchstone Theatre Company
was formed last October by 10
people from UBC's Theatre
Department. The group recently
performed a one-act play, The
Exception and the Rule by Bertoldt
Brecht, in the Sub's party room.
The Exception and the Rule
A one-act play by Bertoldt Brecht
Directed by Gordon McCall
Performed    by   Touchstone
Theatre Company
on March 2
The play concerns a merchant
travelling across a desert to reach
Ulan Bator, Mongolia. The merchant uses threats and promises to
keep his guide and carrier ahead of
a competing expedition that'
follows close behind. Leaving the
"unreliable" guide at a desert
outpost, the merchant attempts to
complete the journey with a
confused, tired carrier.
Here the Touchstone performance lost what had been a
fast-moving pace. Vicki Mc-
Cullough (the carrier) and Ian
Fenwick (the merchant) were
unable to fully communicate the
hardships of the desert crossing.
The play regained momentum
when the merchant forced his
carrier across a flooded river,
breaking the latter's arm in the
process. The merchant leader kills
the carrier, mistaking the wounded
man's offering of water for a
vengeful attack.
The final scene deals with the
legal action taken by the carrier's
widow against the merchant. After
an amusing court case, the merchant is acquitted and the widow's
request for a financial settlement
is denied.
The nine short scenes into which
The Exception and the Rule is
divided demand that the actor
quickly adjust to being in and out of
the play. In most of the scenes, the
performers (McCullough, Fenwick, Gordon McCall, Karen
Bergman, Don Griffiths, Michael
Puttonen) maintained the alert,
controlled acting necessary for
such adjustment!
The music and props were
refreshingly simple. Two drums, a
flute, and several percussion instruments combined to give
pleasing sound effects. Props
consisted of two stools, one bamboo
curtain, a sheet of blue paper used
to suggest the river, and a canvas
tarp which served as a stage.
"Choosing this play allowed us to
be portable and to go into most any
space," said McCall, director of
Touchstone.
McCall and Fenwick outlined
several other reasons for the
company's choosing The Exception and the Rule as its first
play.
The inexpensive production of
the play was an important factor in
its selection. Like many newly
formed theatre companies,
Touchstone is short of cash. They
have a "very small" B.C. cultural
grant which is "in the mail," according to McCall. But McCall said
that the group will be largely self-
financed until "some of the people
in the granting institutions begin to
see or hear about us."
The company members supported Brecht's portrayal of exploited worker and exploiting
employer.
"We all came into agreement
about the fact that the main issues
in the play were still relevant and
that we agreed with them," said
McCall.
McCall also said that "since we
had to fund this project ourselves,
we decided to do it in the high
schools first . . . then we decided
to give the students something that
would lead to a discussion afterwards. We decided that Brecht
would be a good choice and particularly one of his didactic pieces
because the issues are clear."
Fenwick considered the
audience reactions after performances at University Hill and
Winston Churchill high schools to
be "surprisingly positive." Several
student suggestions that "made
sense" have been incorporated into
the play.
Touchstone has been using the
Arts One building for its rehearsals. In return, they performed
The Exception and the Rule at
an Arts One symposium that was
held on March 13. This is to be
followed by an April showing at the
Vancouver Art Gallery and
possibly several more high school
performances.
"Our next production will
probably be another one-act," said
McCall. It will be produced in the
spring and may be a medieval
play. Company members who are
presently tied up at Freddy Wood
will be more actively involved in
this production.
Fenwick said that Touchstone is
looking at some modern plays for a
full-length production that is to be
produced in the summer.
"We hope to have established
ourselves quite well by the end of
the year," said McCall. He would
like to see Touchstone serve the
actors as "an intermediate step"
between graduation into a competitive field and "progressing, if
the people so desire, to go on to
something more." The company
will serve as a base that allows us
to   develop,   yet   it   will   remain

Solzhenitsin says more
By RON BINNS
In August 1918 Lenin wrote to the Penza
Provincial Executive Committee, who were
unable to cope with a peasant revolt, "Lock
up all the doubtful ones in a concentration
camp outside the city."
Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
The Gulag Archipelago Two
Harper & Row. Paperback. $2.95
In the same year concentration camps
were set up in three Moscow monasteries.
By 1926 the Gulag system of camps for
political prisoners had spread across the
USSR, and one of the earliest accounts of the
Gulag reality had been published in the
West. This memoir faded from view, just as
all the subsequent ones did, and while the
fascist tyranny established by Lenin and
Trotsky went completely out of control
under Stalin, intellectuals from the West
arrived to record glowing accounts of the
Soviet utopia.
,. As late as 1942 self-deluding leftist intellectuals like Sidney and Beatrice Webb
were arguing in books like The Truth About
Soviet Russia that the USSR was one big
cosy family of proletarian bliss functioning
under the benign paternalism of comrade
Stalin.
SOLZHENITSIN . . . free in '73
And, sadly, even today one can pick up
leftist newspapers in which men like Lenin,
Trotsky and Mao are hailed as intellectual
and moral supermen, instead of arrogant,
callous dictatorial human beings subject to
all of the vices that other mortals are.
Gulag Archipelago has two important
theses.
Firstly, that Stalinism was not an
aberration within the Soviet system, but
merely a magnification of fascist elements
within the State structure, established by
Lenin and Trotsky and still in existence
today. (One of the most revealing aspects of
the Watergate affair was the evident puzzlement of Breznev and Mao over the way
Nixon's plans for his enemies were regarded
as a crime in the West).
Secondly, that the West, acutely aware of
the atrocities committed by Nazi Germany,
will never quite believe or grasp the Soviet
horror until it, too, experiences invasion and
colonization by the USSR.
Gulag Archipelago Two offers a shattering, emotional account of life inside the
camps, but it is of more than documentary
significance. The trilogy as a whole is entitled An Experiment in Literary Investigation and it is useful to compare it
with Norman Mailer's The Armies of the
Night, where a similar documentary insight
into the paroxysm of a great nation is
deployed with a poet's sense of irony and
despair.
Solzhenitsin is occasionally heavyhanded
in his sarcasm and bitterness about the
system which has blighted his own life. But
he is equally capable of a wry irony, quoting
Marx against the official embalmers of
Marx; quoting from Lenin's own collected
works, and from the manuscripts of the
Lenin library; and parodying the petrified
techniques of state-sponsored literature:
"There were certainly more escapes than
suicides! Admirers of socialist realism can
praise me: I am pursuing an optimistic
line," Solzhenitsin writes.
Perhaps the most--interesting ^ aspect,
brought forward in Gulag Archipelago Two
is the tragic abyss between the language of
the Soviet state and the reality.
Marxism-Leninism provides the official
vocabulary of the state, yet many paradoxes
and contradictions spring from this.

The Centre Coffeehouse will be open again
tonight starting at8:30 p.m. and running to 1
a.m. This week they will feature a Bluegrass
ensemble called A Drop in the Bucket. If you
were one of the fortunate few who wandered
into the conversation pit an hour or so after
the AMS general circus last week you might
have heard them playing a few tunes.
» They are an excellent group. All of them
have been playing individually for many
years and together they really cook. Feel
free to drop into the Coffeehouse and give
them a listen. Residence people, don't be put
off because of the rain. The Coffeehouse
people will send a bus over to Place Vanier
at 8:15 and to Totem Park residence at 8:30
to give you a lift over and will return at 12
midnight.
If you're up for a few classical tunes,
VECC presents its seventh Masterpiece
Music concert Sunday night at 8■p.m. This
week's performer is Ianalee DeKant on the
harp. with the Purcell String Quartet.
Tickets are $2 for students.
More classical music from the Vancouver
Society for Early Music and the Vancouver
Chamber Choir . . . tonight they will present
their first of two Musica Concertats. This
features Vancouver's best choral ensemble
with musicians playing authentic period
instruments. Concert time is 8:30 p.m. at
Kyerson United Church.
VSO presents its second group of concerts
in the CHQM great composers series next
week with famed violinist Yehudi Menuhin.
Concerts are March 22, iz and 24 at the
QUeen Elizabeth Theatre, at 8:30 p.m.
W. 0. Mitchell's Back to Beulah finishes
this weekend at the Vancouver East
Cultural Centre. This is another successful
play done by the Playhouse Theatre centre
of B.C. It is an amusing and at the same
time thought-provoking production. The
remaining shows are tonight and tomorrow
at 8p.m. at VECC, 1895 Venables St. Tickets
are $2 and $3.
Starting on Wednesday of next week,
VECC presents Eight-Four Acres, a new
production of the Tamahnous Theatre.
Eight-Four Acres is set in the B.C. Interior
and is a madcap look at the land development question in this province. The plot of
the play runs something like this—: "Can
young Paul and Lady Liza, escape the vice,
filth and corruption of urban life and find
peace and happiness in our Westcoast
wilderness paradise OR will the Repulsive
Party win the election and enable the evil
Spurio, real estate enfant terrible, to wreak
his terrible revenge on their friend and
benefactor T. Timer?" Well, it will be interesting to see what will happen now that
the Repulsive Party won the election in
reality but check out the play and see how
Jeremy Long foresees the future.
Showtimes are 8:30, March 25-27, March 30-
April 3, April 6-10. Tickets are $2.50 on
Tuesday and Wednesday, $3 on Friday and
Saturday, and Thursdays it's pay what you
can.
This week's Pacific Cinematheque show is
the 1932 film, Red Dust, starring none other
than Clarke Gable and Jean Harlow. Gable
originally didn't want to work with Harlow,
who at that time had a reputation as a no-
talent blonde, but after filming the two sex
symbols together, this movie became a high
point in the history of movie erotica, 1930's
style. A must-see for old movie freaks.
Showtime is 8 p.m. at VECC on Monday.
As one or two Marxist intellectuals
realized from the beginning, Leninist
centralism and Marxism are incompatible.
Lenin believed- in an elite corps of intellectuals leading the proletariat on to the
Marxist super-state, yet ironically this was
the antithesis of the dictatorship of the
proletariat, in theory as in practice.
Marxism was the first ideology which
projected a consciousness of the very
existence of ideology. Yet, tragically, it
became a crude tool in the hands of an
authoritarian dictator like Lenin to
rationalize the mass murder of of all those
groupings opposed to Bolshevik control.
Lenin was unquestionably a deeply moral
man in relation to his hatred of Czarist
autocracy. At the same time he was
bourgeois, in his private life, in his cultural
tastes, and in his complacency. Deeply
scarred by the execution of his older
brother, he became no better than a Hitler
once the power of the state was in his hands
alone.
The results were both tragic and absurd.
A deaf and dumb carpenter got a term for
counterrevolutionary agitation! How? He
was laying floors in a club. Everything had
been removed from a big hall, and there was
no nail or hook anywhere. While he was
working, he hung his jacket and his service
cap on a bust of Lenin. Someone -came and
saw it. Ten years.
The charge against Grigory Yefimovich
Generalov was that he 'used to drink heavily
because he hated the Soviet government.'
[And actually he used to drink heavily
because he and his wife got along badly. ] He
got eight years.
A saleswoman accepting merchandise
from a forwarder noted it down on a sheet of
newspaper. There was no other paper. The
number of pieces of soap happened to fall on
the forehead of Comrade Stalin. Article 58,
10 years.
Lenin corrupted Marxist texts in such a
..way,, that-s4h#. language of freedom now -
provides thegrotesque camouflage for one
of the most vicious regimes in the world.
Solzhenitsin quotes from Pravda:
Heightening our revolutionary vigilance,
we will help our glorious intelligence service, headed by the true Leninist, the
Stalinist Peoples Commissar Nikolai
Ivanovich Yezhov, to purge our higher
educational institutions. as well as all our
country of the remnants of the Trotskyite-
Bukharinite and other counterrevolutionary
trash. *
And as he bitterly points out,
Not one single speech nor one single essay
or article or one single book — be it scientific, journalistic, critical or literary, so-
called — can exist without the use of.these
primary cliches: In the most scientific of
texts it is required that someone else's false
authority or false priority be upheld
somewhere. Without this lie 'even an
academic work cannot see the light of day.
And what can be said about those shrill
meetings and trashy lunch-break gatherings
where you are compelled to vote against
your own opinion, to pretend to be glad over
what distresses you [be it a new state loan,
the lowering of piece rates, contributions to
some tank column, Sunday work duties, or
sending your children to help on the
collective farms].
This distance between language and
reality is ironically captured in one of the
thousands of incidents related in Gulag
Archipelago.
There used to be a city in the Far East
PRISONER
living in Gulag
with the loyal name of Tsarevich — 'Crown
Prince.' The Revolution saw it renamed
Svobodny, meaning 'Free.' The Amur
Cossacks who once inhabited the city were
scattered — and the city was empty. They
had to resettle it with someone. And they
did: with prisoners and the Chekists
guarding them. The whole city of Svobodny
became a camp.
And so it is that symbols are spontaneously born of life.
The camps are not merely the 'dark side'
of our post-revolutionary life. Their scale
made them not an aspect, not just a side, but
very nearly the liver of events. It was rare
for our half-century so to manifest itself so
consistently, with such finality.
And what was the scale?
No one can tell for sure.
Solzhenitsin estimates that about 50
million people served long sentences in the
Gulag camps. How many died is unknown,
though there is no doubt that the Nazi
atrocities against the Jews were chicken
feedrsin comparison.
"Whereas the fascist regimes based acts of
mass murder on a certain logic (racism),
the Soviet system became totally deranged.
Terror became a key component in the
operation of the State. Mutual mistrust bred
mutual cowardice.
And as for those imprisoned, well they
were KRs, enemies of the revolution. As the
years passed the wqrd 'revolution' itself
faded. Very well then, let theni be 'enemies
of the. people.' That sounded even better."
In spite of myths of a thaw, the situation in
the Soviet empire is not encouraging.
Documents like Czech playwright Vaclav
Havel's 'Open Letter' (printed in the current
issue of Survey magazine) show that intellectuals are still being harassed and
censored by a fascist state apparatus.
For too long the New Left has been
complacent in its responses to the darker
side of the Soviet states which purvey a
Marxist rhetoric while committing mass
crimes against their citizens.
There is much that is distasteful about the
Solzhenitsin cult particularly when it is
paraded by those who would defend reactionary and racist regimes by shouting
'Communist threat.'
Nevertheless, Gulag Archipelago Two
remains essential reading. It is pointless
feeling concerned about Chile, South Africa,
or any other fascist state, if the most
monstrous totalitarian tyranny of them all is
allowed to float free of criticism on a froth of
pseudo-Marxist verbiage.
Jazz sizzles
By BRUCE BAUGH
Friday night'sStephane Grappelli concert
at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre will be
treasured in the memories of music lovers
for some time. Grappelli demonstrated with
flawless accuracy just how expressive an
instrument the violin can be when the music
being played is jazz.
The jazz Grappelli plays is more melodic
than it is abstract or intellectual. His improvisations, which were simply brilliant,
owe perhaps as much to his classical
training as to jazz and blues. Here and there
one could hear passages that could have
originated in a violin concerto by Mozart or
Brahms. At other times he would pky a
sizzling blues riff.
Working with jazz tunes that hail mostly
from the swing era and before, Grappelli
would touch on the melody line as the piece
began and then bring the band behind him
into the song before launching on a solo. His
technique is astounding. He displayed
speed, accuracy and sensitivity even in
passages that were almost baroque in their
intricacy. Yet the theme being improvised
on was never lost in the improvisation.
See PF 8: JAZZ
Friday, March  19, 1976
THE       UBYSSEY
Page Friday, 7 Jazz
From PF 7
The fusion of musical styles
which is the sound of le jazz 'ot is a
jazz style which Grappelli helped
originate with the Quintet of the
Hot Club in France, which he
formed with the legendary Belgian
gypsy guitarist, Django Reinhardt.
Although Grappelli only played
with Reinhardt for half a dozen
years, his association with the
celebrated guitarist has remained
his chief claim to fame. That's
unfortunate, for Grappelli himself
is a musician of the highest calibre,
and he has attracted the admiration of such people as the
great classical violinist Yehudi
Menuhin.
The band behind Grappelli
featured Diz Disley and Ike Isaacs
on acoustic guitars and Brian Torff
on acoustic double bass. Both
Disley and Isaacs played well,
Isaacs being the more relaxed and
confident of the two, while Disley
was something of a flash.
Nevertheless, both showed a
mastery of their instrument and
their diverging styles complimented each other. But the
surprise highlight of the evening
was Brian Torff's bass solo on
Duke Ellington's Satin Doll. It was
nothing short of superb.
Grappelli played twenty songs
during almost two hours.
Highlights for me were Lime
House Blues and Gershwin's Old
Man River. My companion, who
has forgotten more about jazz than
I'll ever know, was impressed with
the way Grappelli changed around
the rhythms and arrangements of
the songs. It is a credit to the band
as a whole that in any given piece
they were able to move through
different arrangements with
complete ease and confidence.
Grappelli is a master. His music
is full of elegance, grace and wit. It
was definitely a concert to
remember.

flexible enough to enable new
members to pass through.
Other plans for the future include
original productions and a
province-wide tour.
"One of our artistic goals is to
get new audiences," said Fenwick.
"We may develop plays that will be
directly related to people's lives."
He did not say when Touchstone
would begin to produce its own
plays.
"There is a possibility that we
can set up a tour around the
province with the British Columbia
Drama Association," said McCall.
"We haven't decided if that would
be this summer or later on, but
that's one of the projects for the
coming year.
If the performance of The Exception and the Rule is any indication. Touchstone will offer the
Vancouver public a chance to
observe good original acting.

Elections confirm CITR's
musical (?) direction
UBC radio CITR has elected two
iew executive members for 1976-
77.
In a close election Thursday,
jTTR member Roger Ward beat
raisjc director Greg Ioannou for
dee-president, while Bob Good-
,vin, a former Alma Mater Society
axternal affairs officer, lost to
CITR member John Plant for
ousiness manager.
Ward said while he hoped music
Sould not be the mainstay for the
station next year, he said he hoped

aid. "A couple regulars took the
yfaole load."
Tynan said the 3,500 figure set
'or quorum may be lowered to
5,085. This may be done, he said, by
setting quorum at 15 per cent of full
ime students instead of 15 per cent
if day students. (Day students are
hpse who attend UBC for at least
jne class between the hours of 8:30
a.m. and 4:30 p.m.)
)ave van Blarcom, Student Repre-
:entative Assembly president,
lowever, said the situation "is not
tie end of the world."
"It's a bad time of year and
iverybody's short on time," van
Sarcom said. "It's a lousy time to
;et students involved in issues
yhen they've got their noses
Hiried in books."
Only three people from UBC
yere involved in making up the
•Serendum, Sagaris said. Because
>f_ the lack of participation from
JBC students, BCSF is becoming a

;he said.
"It is an example of the kind of

Ward said a firm policy has yet
to be set regarding CITR "sound"
but that he would like to see the
station play less "popular " music
next year.
Ioannou, who termed Ward as
musically "right wing," said he
would like to see CITR play music
more like what CKLG-FM used to
play.
Ioannou said he was disappointed at losing the election but
that "I'll still be music director
next year so I'll have a bit of input
into the station."
Ward is likely to support CITR
president Richard Saxton's
policies on the executive.
Saxton, who narrowly won the
presidency over a progressive
candidate one week ago supports
AM-pop-type musical formats.
Both Saxton and Ward advocate
greater coverage of campus events
on CITR.
Assistant music director Bruce
Baugh said Ioannou, if elected,
would have "balanced off" Saxton's role on the executive.
In view of the election results,
Baugh said it is unlikely he will
return to CITR next year.
Loser Goodwin said he doesn't
think there are any real
philosophical differences between
himself and Plant.
"We both just wanted the job,"
he said.
"We would thus conclude that
the dependency population is
recruited and trained
predominantly prior to adult entry.
"We would speculate that this
recruitment is institutionally
determined and results from institutional adaptation to a closing
of occupational opportunities in
white collar areas.
"(Sandy) Lockhart has identified a major shift in educational
policy that supports the conclusion
that dependency attitudes, skills
and expectations are now being
systematically socialized and
conditioned in the schools."
The study notes that fewer
graduates are seeking private
sector jobs, according to senior
officials in the private sector.
"They also found community
college graduates more desirable
as workers than university
graduates because such graduates
took orders better, were more
prepared to learn on the job and
came better socialized to private
sector values than did university
graduates.
"Yet as noted, they still hired
university graduates and increasingly with advanced degrees
for most of the better jobs that
were available, but at lower
starting salaries for jobs with less
career potential."
The report recommends that
changes in the dependency
population group be closely
studied, especially as they relate to
welfare claims.
"The study has identified increasing trends of middle class
origin Social Assistance recipients,
as well as highly educated middle
class recipients of grant-oriented
programs.
"These relatively new members
of the dependency population
possess more viable means of
pressuring for scarce economic
resources during economic
crises."

Cubans win here
By MARK LEPITRE
Cuba defeated Canada three
games to two in international
volleyball action in War Memorial
gym Monday evening.
Canada won the first two games
of the best of five match, playing
against Cuba's second string. The
Cubans went primarily with their
first team to takejthe final three
games.
Both teams played well but the
Cubans were slightly off stride.
Cuba is ranked in the top 10 in the
world and is expected to take a
medal at the Olympics this summer.
The two teams, which will be in
the same pool in the Olympics, will
meet five times as they tour
western Canada. Cuba took the
second match in three straight
games in Calgary. The Cuban
coach was apparently upset by his
team's performance in Vancouver
and went with the first string all
the way.
Volleyball returns to War
Memorial gym tonight and
Saturday as UBC hosts the B.C.
Senior "A" Championships.
The Thunderbirds and Thunderettes (past and present) will be
two teams entered in the tournament.
The 'Birds captured the
Canadian intercollegiate title this
season, with the Thunderettes
second in the women's national
intercollegiate tournament. The
Thunderettes' two coaches will be
playing for the team.
The competition on both sides of
the tournament will be strong. The
chief threat for the 'Birds will
come in the form of the Vancouver
Volleyball Club. VVC was third in
Canada last season, and is one of
the few teams to defeat UBC this
season.
On the women's side the Chimos
will be the team for the Thunderettes to beat. The Chimos won
the national championship last
year and have been one of
Canada's top teams for many
years. There are nine ex-Chimos
on the national team, evidence of
strong Chimo coaching.
Action gets under way at 6:30
p.m. when the Thunderettes take
on B.C. Olympics and the 'Birds
face University of Victoria.
Play   will  resume early Saturday morning.
The winners of the tournament
will represent B.C. at the Canadian
Senior "A" championships to be
held in Moncton at the end of April.
Wrestlers compete in Quebec
By BOB RAYFIELD
The Thunderbird wrestling team
sent some representatives to
compete as members of the B.C.
team which came second in the
Canadian Open wrestling championships held at St. John's Quebec
recently.
The competition was gruelling
and the B.C. team faced some
tough opponents. B.C. had 80
points, second to Ontario with 86
points. UBC coach Bob Laycoe was
in charge of the B.C. team.
There were two divisions in the
meet, junior and senior. The strong
showing in the junior class by the
UBC wrestlers proved to be the
deciding factor in B.C.'s second-
place showing.
In the junior and senior divisions
there were two types of wrestling
— freestyle and Greco-Roman.
In freestyle, holds are allowed
above and below the waist. Foot
sweeps are also allowed in
freestyle. In Greco-Roman
wrestling, holds above the waist
only are allowed.
In the junior class the best
showing was by UBC's Clark
Davis, in the 177-pound class. He
won a gold medal in freestyle
wrestling and in Greco-Roman.
Davis is a first-year wrestler with
UBC and he proved to be the most
consistent competitor. He was
named the outstanding junior
wrestler in the competition.
The best wrestler for B.C. in the
senior division was Marty Lum. He
wrestles in the 106-pound class and
is B.C.'s senior champion. He won
a gold medal in the Greco-Roman
wrestling. Lum is in his second
year on the UBC wrestling team.
The other senior wrestlers were
Mike and George Richey. Both had
very tough matches during the
competition.
Mike Richey went against the
Iranian world champion, Bazegar,
in the 167-pound division. Bazegar
was the best wrestler of the Iranian
team.
The Iranians are currently
ranked fourth in the world.
Bazegar was losing the match
after the first round but came on
strong in the next two rounds to win
the match.
Bazegar is favored to win in his
class in the summer Olympics in
Montreal.
George Richey was leading his
Iranian opponent in points but lost
out on a pin in the last minute of the
bout.
Barry Lam and Mike Grist were
the other junior wrestlers from
UBC and they both placed third in
the junior class.
This meet was a good indication
of the ability of the UBC wrestling
team. They managed a second-
place finish in the tournament even
though the competition was strong.

Generations of UBC students and Vancouverites have
acquired a deeper appreciation of music from the
Adaskins. In this lecture/demonstration, they will
discuss and play selections from a wide range of music
to illustrate their theory that artists reflect the
condition of the society of their time.
PLEASE NOTE - This is the last lecture in the 1975-76
series sponsored by the Vancouver Institute. It will take
place in the auditorium of the UBC Music Building,
NOT in the Woodward Instructional Resources Centre,
where the Institute normally meets.
