teaching assistant
union strike is over
before it even started
The five month long contract negotiations
between the union and the university ended
Wednesday with a signed memorandum of
agreement. But the TAU bargaining team
now must face another dispute — hostile
members feel betrayed by the negotiating
"I have never been so disgusted in my life
to admit to being a union member," said
political science TA Bill Tieleman. "The
TAU negotiating team completely
capitulated under pressure from the university.
"I don't mind losing but I hate giving up
and basically the union gave up today. It's a
trite phrase, but 'no guts, no glory!) We
didn't win a goddam thing," he said.
Tieleman was a member of the
negotiating team and steering committee
that decided Tuesday night to accept a
much weakened union security clause. He
resigned from the negotiating team because
signing the memorandum of agreement
means the negotiating team must support
ratification at the membership meeting Jan.
28, a position Tieleman and others plan to
"It will be ratified'.'said mathematics shop
steward Gordon Swaters. "But there will be
a sizeable minority opposed to the
contract." Tieleman says he'll make his case
for contract rejection at the meeting.
The one year contract, retroactive to Sept.
1, 1981, gives the TAU a 15 per cent increase
in wages, which was the university offer
made in November. In addition to the
general wage increase, some markers will be
reclassified as teaching assistants. The small
number of reclassified employees will
receive a slight pay increase.
But the controversial clause in the
memorandum of agreement is union security. If the new contract is ratified, starting
next fall, each teaching assistant will be
presented with an option card at an orientation meeting in the third or fourth week of
Within seven days the employee must sign
Vol. LXIV, No. 39
Vancouver, B.C.Thursday, January 21,1982 *€;3>'is       228-2301
and return the card to the TAU office expressing intent to join or not join the union.
"What the union has been consistently
pushing for is a default clause to eliminate
the expensive membership drive that occurs
each year," said Tieleman.
The union membership wanted a
"default" clause where TA appointees
would become members of the union after a
30 day period if they did not file an exemption card with the union or university. During mediation in December, the union
modified its proposal to answer administration complaints about bureaucratic problems.
The university refused lo accept any
union security proposal that included a
default clause, said TAU negotiator Mike
Union negotiators felt they could get wide
support for the union security issue and
union negotiator Rob Cameron said
Wednesday the union had support from
campus unions to strike for union security.
In bargaining sessions Tuesday and
Wednesday, the union negotiating team
decided it had an agreement that was acceptable to the TAU members.
"There were three factors which led us to
sign the memo," said Burke. "It was a better offer than the employer had made
earlier; it was an offer we felt the union
would accept and we were convinced we
would not have got anything more with job
But whether or not the settlement is an
improvement beyond the previous union
security proposal is uncertain. The union
gains more control over its membership list
with union memberships mailed directly to
the union office after a sign up period in
The contract says every appointee will
have to fill in one of three options: to continue as a union member, to join, or to not

'No guts,

But signing the card is not a condition of
employment. A teaching assistant could be
hired and refuse to sign. The union would
then spend time and money grieving against
the university for not following the contract
to get cards filed, said Tieleman.
"Without making the decision to join the
union or not a condition of employment, the
clause is worthless," said Tieleman.
"The clause which was signed will not
substantially improve the conditions of
teaching assistant on this campus all."
Anti-union feeling in some departments is
strong enough that the word will spread that
there is no force behind the clause in the
contract and that signing the card does not
matter, Tieleman added.
Union negotiators defended the proposal
by saying the threat of strike forced the
university to move to accept the proposal.
"They were playing games with us until they
were convinced we were going to strike,"
said Cameron.
"It is a good union security clause. The
best we could get this year. The key to me
has always been the mandatory choice," he
But the union did not choose to test the
university's strength, Tieleman said.
"The union said go out and sign a security
clause with a default," he said. "The close
to 200 union members and supporters who
signed up to walk the picket line and the
campus unions who decided not to cross for
TA union security have been betrayed."
Administration spokesperson Al Hunter
said Wednesday that UBC president Doug

team is recommending acceptance as is required when a memorandum is signed. But
ratification is still uncertain.

The Unfinished Basement
There are presently over 160 AMS clubs vying for approximately 35 club offices. This
situation will only become worse as more
clubs are constituted weekly. The Unfinished Basement Proposal will create seven
large workroom type offices and colour
dark room facilities in this presently unused
area. This will alleviate some of our overcrowding problems. Estimated cost:

Conversation Lounge
The shortage of large bookable space in
SUB is critical. These rooms, which are
available to all AMS members, are almost
impossible to book unless groups plan months in advance.
The Conversation Lounge Proposal will
create a large Party Room on the main floor
of SUB where the Listening Lounge is now.
It has a floor area of 2,910 square feet,
slightly larger than our present party room,
and can be subdivided into three smaller
rooms by means of removable walls. This
new area has been designed so as to retain
its present use as a conversation/meeting
area during the day. There will be 6 ft.
revolving door panels which will be left
open during the day and closed in the evening when the Party Room is in use.
Estimated cost: $110,000.00.

recent questionnaire by the B.C.
Students Federation reveals that the
problem of sexual harassment is
rampant in provincial universities
and colleges.
"I'm shocked and worried and
angry," said Sophia Hanafi, BCSF
Women's Steering Committee representative, of the survey results.
In an interview at the Canadian
Federation of Students-Pacific
region conference, Hanafi said the
questionaire found that 25 per cent
of women at Douglas College and
21 per cent of women at Capilano
College had been sexually assaulted
while attending college.
"It is obviously something which
has not been addressed properly if
it's been allowed to reach these proportions. It must be far, far more
widespread than any of us realized," said Hanafi.
Twenty post-secondary institutions in B.C. were sent the questionnaire and five have responded to
date, although Hanafi said she expects more results before March.
But while the number of women
who have been sexually assaulted
on campus was high, the number of
women who identified sexual
harassment as a problem was
relatively low, she added.
"It is really odd," she said.

'Pinochet oniy terrorist'
The only terrorist in Chile is junta
leader General Agusto Pinochet
himself, a Chilean spokesperson
charged Tuesday.
Addressing about 100 demonstrators in Robson Square, a representative of the Solidarity office
with the People of Chile said, "Opposition to the government is growing every day. The people will not
accept slavery."
Ana Maria Quinoz complained
of the tyranny and oppression felt
by the working class. "The government has decreased real wages, ter
minated the contract of the copper
mine workers and practically destroyed maternity benefits," she
"Democrats have been expelled
from the country or sent to jail. All
these events have the United States'
blessing. The U.S. no longer cares
about human rights."
On behalf of the Canadian Association of Industrial, Mechanical
and Allied Workers Cathy Walker
endorsed support for Chilean workers. "We know Chilean workers
have been battling with the government.    Their   struggle   is   our
struggle," she said.
Walker commented on the fact
that major trade unions support the
Polish workers. "But when it comes
to fight against U.S. backed regimes, where are those trade unionists?"
A spokesperson for the carpenters' union said, "The Trudeau
government supports the tyranny of
the Chilean government by trading
with the fascist Pinochet. We support the Chilean people and we
want to free the trade unionists incarcerated in Chile."

women were sexually harassed,

She added that many college and
university administrators are unwilling to deal with the problem.
"It's a difficult thing to correct.
Again it comes down to the society
that we deal with every day. In addition, the voice of students right
now may not be strong enough to
counter administrations like Simon
Fraser's where they hush things
up," she added.
Although women at some colleges did not identify sexual harassment as a problem on their campus,
Hanafi said their attitudes reflect a
society where violence against
women is so prevalent that sexual
harassment on campuses may seem
relatively insignificant.
At Capilano College, 59 per cent
of the respondents said they had
been verbally harassed, 46 per cent
physically harassed and 36 per cent
At Vancouver Community College's King Edward Campus, 51 per
cent of the respondents had been
verbally harassed, 36 per cent
physically harassed, 18 per cent
propositioned and three per cent
sexually assaulted.
Building tilts out

And UBC is even building them a
brand new $5.3 million building,
complete with a tilt.

Frank Kananen said Wednesday.

Jim Banham Wednesday: "The

"(Physical plant) have no
evidence the building is unsafe," he
Jirayr Eran, spokesperson for
Bush, Bohlman and Partners, structural engineers for the project,
declined comment on the reasons
for the several inch tilt.
The tilt can probably be remov
ed, according to UBC civil
Ray Griffith of Dalla-Lana Griffin Architects also declined comment, saying only, "I don't think
anything is wrong."
The work stoppage is probably
just an over-reaction, Kananen
said, but was taken for safety's
sake. A meeting was held Tuesday
to discuss the problem, he said.
Once the home economics faculty
moves'into the new building, the
present Home Economics building
(which was called "temporary"
when it was built in 1949) will be
demolished to make room for a new

Safety concern chastised
OTTAWA (CUP) — A Carleton
University lab supervisor's complaints to a local newspaper about
lab hazards have earned him a letter
of reprimand and an offer to
change jobs.
Stefan Behrendt received the
reprimand from Carleton vice-
president academic Tom Ryan after
he told the Ottawa Citizen that a
chemical solvent, one of a
hydrocarbon group suspected of
being carcinogenic, was being used
in plastic squirt bottles by about
160•students. Behrendt said the solvent, methylchloroform, should only handled inside a fume hood.
"Why take foolish chances?"
said Behrendt. "Students exposed
to methylchloroform now many
come down with cancer 20 or 30
years from now and they won't
know what caused it."
He told the Ottawa newspaper
that Carleton has the only lab in
Ottawa that does not require the
solvent to be used with fume hoods.
Ryan's letter to Behrendt said the
supervisor's statements to outside
media "could be damaging to the
reputation of the department and
the university." His remarks, said
Ryan, "constitute unacceptable
conduct on the part of an employee
of the university."
The letter threatened further
disciplinary action if Behrendt does
not use university safety committee
channels, or the provincial labour
ministry, for voicing his future
Behrendt said he tried for months to get the problem solved, either
through changing  the solvent  or
getting fume hoods installed,
before he went to the media.
"I spoke repeatedly to people in
the department," he said. "They
didn't want to solve the problem. I
wouldn't have gone to the media
Science dean George Skippen,
said Behrendt, asked him to relocate to a job elsewhere on the
campus after the story was printed.

where I am. Besides, the problem
wouldn't go away if I was

SFU student society spokesperson Jeff Berg said the committee's
report was very shallow. He
demanded postponement of a decision on differential fees.
Pedersen's recommendations for
budget cuts and differential fees
will in all likelihood be tabled by the
board to allow further input before
its February meeting.
Pedersen said in the "fact sheet"
that the cuts were fashioned to
minimize the impact on the univer
sity's primary function of teaching
and research. "It is very unfortunate that we have to eliminate any
programs, academic or not. Obviously if we had not thought they
were of some importance we would
not have introduced them in the
first place and supported them over
the years," he said.
Pedersen said of the cuts, "It's
really unfortunate that all three
public universities in B.C. are considering cutbacks when overwhelming evidence shows future manpower shortages in areas directly
related to the economy of the province."
Chileans 'must be free'
From page 3
"We will continue to have demonstrations until the Chilean people
have the freedom and the justice
they deserve," he said.
Mr. Liberona, a representative of
the Central Union of External
Workers, told the demonstrators of
the disappearance of a Chilean construction worker. Cro Benjamin
Cares was detained at work on Jan.
13 and later sent to the public jail of
But on Jan. 18 Cares disappeared
from the jail, and the Chilean authorities denied knowing the whereabouts of the construction worker.
Liberona urged the demonstrators
to write or to send telegrams to
president   Pinochet,   the   Chilean
ministers of justice and the interior,
and to Mark McGuigan, Canadian
external affairs minister.
Following the speakers, young
people dressed in traditional Spanish costume danced to lively Latin
American music. They added a bit
of color to the demonstration.
Despite the near freezing
temperature, they showed the spirit
and determination of a people who

CNC Anti-CFS drive only 'bunk'

It's all part of the Concerned
Students' Association's program to
"get information out to the
students" about the new student
organization narrowly voted in at
the campus last fall, according to
CSA organizer Sonja Filipovic. She
claims more than 75 members in the
recently renamed anti CFS committee at this college of 3,000.
"I'm not saying CFS is entirely
wrong," Filipovic said, "But aligning with the Canadian Labor Congress I disagree with. Supporting
the leftists in El Salvador I disagree
with. There was a thing in the student association office saying they
gave so much money to a pro-
abortion group."
blather on
Tuition fee increases and retrenchment must be rejected, candidates for Alma Mater society executive positions charged Wednesday.
During the all-candidates meeting
held in the SUB conversation pit,
the candidates voiced similar concerns over the financial crisis that
UBC is facing. But that was about
all the candidates agreed on, as the
meeting was characterized by name-
calling and personal insults.
Jon Gates, candidate for AMS
president, was the most vocal when
he criticized current AMS executive and council for failing to
follow the example of student protests that occurred in Halifax.

The executive elections will be
held next Tuesday to Friday from
10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Advance polls will
be held in the three student
residences next Monday from 5 to 7
The two candidates running for
administration director are Terry
Cox (arts 4) and Dana Perlman
(arts 3), who is part of the "progressive" slate.
Two candidates are also running
for external affairs co-ordinator
Cynthia Southard (education 3),
and Charles Menzies (science 2) of
the 'progressive' slate.
Alan Pinkney (arts 3), James
Hollis (science 4 and current external affairs co-ordinator), and
Margaret Copping (arts 2), of the
"progressive" slate, are all aiming
for finance director.
Running for vice-president are-
Cliff Stewart (applied science 2) and
"progressive" slate candidate Gordon Comer (arts 2). Aiming for
president are Chris Fulker (arts 4),
who didn't bother to show up at the
meeting, Dave Frank (science 4),
and "progressive" slate candidate
Jon Gates (arts 3).
"Bunk," says CFS fieldworker
Mike Miller. "I've never heard of
anything like that. We don't have
enough money to throw around."
He said the organization formed
alliances with the CLC last year to
battle a common threat: escalating
interest rates, which affect student
loan payments, and rising food and
housing costs.
"If I had a chance to sit down
with every student at CNC I would
tell them CFS is just the indepen
dent student societies right across
the country. That's who funds it,
that's who forms it . . . it's totally
in the control of the elected
representatives on campuses,"
Miller said.
"In opposing CFS, what are they
opposing ... all the other student
societies in the province?"
The profile of the anti-CFS contingent is noticeably low in the conference centre, though. They have
neither   picketed   the   proceedings
("because it's not constructive,"
according to Filipovic) nor have
they attended most of the sessions.
But delegates are reconstructing
the provincial student movement
despite the local opposition.
A major change involves coordinating formerly separate student
organizations into one, according
to Miller. "That eliminates a lot of
wasteful duplication and makes
common objectives possible," he
"And probably the biggest thing
with the transition to CFS is the
recognition that we need an
organization with more capabilities.
BCSF wasn't able to do a lot of
research, fieldworking, communications or travelling," he said.
"With the exception of CNC I
think the votes in favor of joining
CFS show students realize no one
else is going to stand up for education."

Godiva fair game for gendarmes
The RCMP should arrest Lady
Godiva for indecent exposure when
she parades nude around campus
on a horse in early February, student council decided Wednesday.
In an almost unanimous vote,
council directed alma mater society president Marlea Haugen to
write a letter to university RCMP
detachment head Fred Hardy requesting the action.
Only engineer undergraduate society president Lance Balcom and
science undergraduate society president Dave Frank opposed the motion.
The annual Lady Godiva ride,
part of engineering week activities,
has been attacked as sexist and silly
by numerous groups.
The motion also whimsxally suggested that if the arrest was not
possible, that fire hoses be turned
on the masses of engineers surrounding the naked woman.
Council Briefs
The AMS will no longer have to
look at raising Pit beer prices as the
only major way of raising more
money, AMS general manager
Charles Redden told council.
Council can expect $80,000 more
annually from a new agreement for
pinball and video games in the AMS
games room, Redden said. Bringing
rental charges for SUB rooms to
outside groups  to realistic levels,
combined with a promotion campaign, will help bring in $50,000
more each year, he said.
Redden said the AMS will keep
adding nickel photocopiers at its
copy centre downstairs as long as
demand remains high. The library
recently raised its copy charges to
10 cents.
Redden said he had not met his
goals since taking over the position
five months ago. "For every goal
we solve, we find two more, it gets
deeper and deeper."
Council members praised  Red-
den's first semi-annual report, saying  he  had  brought   several  new
business ideas to the AMS,

Referenda join ballot blitz
Two referenda .will be put to UBC students next
week, adding to the ballot blitz for five Alma Mater
Society executive positions.
The AMS and the UBC Public Interest Research
Group are each asking students for funding for their
respective projects.
The AMS wants the financial go ahead to renovate
SUB in order to provide extra space for club offices
and party rooms. "The main problem is that there
are 35 offices for 160 clubs, and an 80 per cent turn-
away rate for the ballroom and party room," AMS
vice president Pat Chow said Wednesday.
t The AMS resolution asks students to pay a $10
building fee for each of the next two years to finance
renovations to the conversation lounge and basement. Plans to renovate the courtyard were abandoned because the estimated cost doubled, and the SUB
renovations committee felt the benefits to be gained
did not justify the expense, Chow said.
"The reason we went for a $10 fee levy was to min
imize interest payments," said Chow. "Council decided on $10, rather than $5, because it would pay
back the principal a lot faster." The fee would be
dropped after two years, she added.
Asked whether the referendum will pass, she replied: "I couldn't even guess. I don't know. I hope it
The UBC Public Research Interest Group has received a more favorable reception from students during its petition drive this year than it did last year, a
PIRG spokesperson said.
"We took greater care in petitioning this year. The
signing rate is much higher this year — about 75 to 80
per cent. It was not that high last year," said Hugh
McCreadie. "People do remember us and are in
favor of funding PIRG," he said.
PIRG is making more effective use of media and
advertising this year, McCreadie said. "Our posters
are more effective this year," he added.
"I think it's going to be very close again this year.
It could go either way," he said.

Stewart warned thefts of the glasses
could mean higher Pit prices.
Council appointed arts representatives Peter Goddard and SAC secretary Cliff Stewart as student representatives to the university committee to select a new administration president.
Council selected Goddard and
Stewart, both current council members, over two other council members and nine non-council members.

the positions if either Goddard or
Stewart should resign.

CIA just on company business
"A theme that is continually repeated . .
is that the CIA does not make policy. The
agency's job is to provide the intelligence of
information that is used by the president and
other policymakers. It only executes policy,
and collects information to be used in policy
decisions by people outside the agency. It
doesn't make policy."
—Philip Agee,
ex-CIA agent and author of
Inside the Company CIA Diary
The people interviewed in Allan Fran-
covich's documentary On Company Business
talk with a cool detachment about the
American Central Intelligence Agency's
covert operations and involvement in third
world countries.
On Company Business
A documentary by Allan Francovich
Playing at the Ridge from Jan. 22-24.
They speak of countless atrocities, and
clearly objectionable involvement of
American agencies and big business in such
countries as Uruguay, Chile, Brazil, the Congo, and Iran, to cite only major examples.
The film's main thesis states CIA operations
in the "internal affairs" of a country have
always been authorized, at least implicitly, by
the president.
That should come as a surprise to no one.
In 1978, as the Shah's government in Iran
fell, it became clear the CIA had not only
trained the fallen regime's secret police force,
SAVAK, but had also assisted in torturing
dissenters. But almost as quickly as the
revelations occurred, they disappeared in the
aftermath of Khomeini's tacit approval of
the hostage-taking inside the American embassy.
The American hostage crisis ultimately
destroyed Carter's presidency. Now that
Ronald Reagan is president, he is advocating
the CIA begin to take a more active part in
obtaining foreign intelligence. In Reagan's
eyes, it is time that the American government
started using the CIA as a vital part of an
overall design to assert American interests.
Frankovich's documentary is a timely
corrective to Reagan's assertions. There is
much past American foreign policy has to account for. It is evident from Francovich's
film that for the last thirty years, the CIA has
indulged in activities that have gone far
beyond its function as an agency responsible
for gathering "foreign intelligence."
The three-hour documentary is divided into three hour-long sections. The first deals
with the emergence of the CIA during the
cold war years. The seed for the present-day
Medusa may have been planted, as this film
asserts, during Harry Truman's years as
president. The Marshall plan, with its
deliberate emphasis on establishing American
dominance abroad, in the name of God, was
perhaps the decree that defined and redefined
the CIA's functions.
It is in the first section that Francovich
makes it clear that the CIA's functions have
included, and will always include, the plans
for enhancing strife, machinations, and
political manouvres abroad, functions that
go beyond gathering "intelligence information."
More importantly, the documentary em
phasizes a point that cannot be made too
often. xDespite public rhetoric to the contrary, American presidents have always condoned CIA meddling in another country's internal affairs. False press leaks are another
integral CIA function.
For example, when Fidel Castro looked to
the Soviet Union for financial and military
support, the US government hatched the Bay
of Pigs invasion and tried to assassinate
The CIA's purpose during the '50s and
early '60s was to "help create optimum atmosphere for (US) multinational
companies." But an ex-agent admits,, "We
drove Fidel Castro into the arms of the Russian bear."
After the Bay of Pigs invasion, the Kennedy administration first tried to deny that
the US had any part in the failed coup.
"These charges are totally false and I deny
In 1972, a US-backed military coup ousted
Allende. The new military junta imprisoned
and shot Allende supporters. Not so coincidentally, the coup took place the same day
Allende had chosen to call a national
plebiscite on his reforms.
Part III of On Company Business focuses
on congressional reaction against CIA activities in Latin American countries. But the
legislative branch of the US government is
deemed virtually incapable of any real action
to change the CIA.
In 1976 senator Frank Church took it upon
himself to investigate CIA infiltration of major US networks and wire services. Nothing
became of the investigation because, in the
worlds of one ex-agent, "Frank Church
didn't find anything because we didn't give
him anything."
Ex-CIA director Richard Helms, who was
indicted for lying to an investigative commit-
military coup in Chile. 1973
them categorically," says a Kennedy administration official. Says another, "Bobby
Kennedy fell in love with clandestine operations." Meanwhile, John F. Kennedy was being lauded for his famous "freedom" speech
to the United Nations.
Part II of On Company Business investigates the Washington connection in
Latin America, with a prime focus being
Chile. In 1970, national elections were held in
Chile. Since no political party received a majority vote, the Chilean congress had the
power to choose the next president.
They chose Salvador Allende.
Troubles began for Allende as soon as he
took office. He was forced to adhere to the
constitution set up by the previous US-
backed Christian Democratic party, which
received much of its support from
bourgeoisie land-owners.
Nevertheless, Allende introduced sweeping
land reforms; workers were given increased
wages, and banks were nationalized. When
Allende nationalized the copper mining industry, the world bank retaliated by cutting
off Chile's world credit. International
Telephone and Telegraph, the American conglomerate, saw its interests in Chile threatened, and the CIA intervened almost immediately.
"We created fear and hysteria as to the
growth of left-wing or communist groups,"
says an ex-CIA agent interviewed in On Company Business. To create the illusion of
hysteria in Chile back home, CIA paid off
truckers and shopkeepers to go on strike.
tee, eventually found himself a free man,
with only a $2,000 fine and a suspended
sentence. The reason? Helms threatened to
name presidential advisors and officials who
had ordered the CIA to meddle in the internal affairs of several countries.
When the Cubans went into Angola, the
CIA circulated a false story about Cuban
soldiers raping native women. The major
wire services picked it up as fact, and even
ran the follow-up hoax — that the soldiers
had been captured and shot by the same
The CIA's principal critic in On Company
Business is Philip Agee, now an unwelcome
member in the intelligence community. On
Company Business accepts and documents
Agee's allegations, cutting impressive on-
location and newsreel film footage with recent interviews. Other critics include Victor
Marchetti, himself a disenchanted ex-CIA
agent. At the end, however, former CIA official David Atlee Philips adds an unexpected
twist to Agee's testimony by questioning
Agee's motives and secret affiliations with an
unknown group.
At the end, On Company Business emerges
as an important, fascinating documentary.
Although director Francovich has avoided
using an omniscient narrator (as Donald Brittain almost always does), his film is
remarkably cohesive and concise, encompassing a multitude of important questions
for the viewer.
For example:
• Should an agent divulge secret material
that may be a "threat to national security,"
as CIA hacks such as William Colby claim.
• What path should American foreign
policy take, now that the CIA is a vital part
of foreign policy?
• Can we continue to rationalize CIA at-
trocities abroad as a necessary evil simply
because the "other side" does it?
• Is the answer simply in "changing the
system" as Marchetti simple-mindedly suggests? Can the system be changed in the first
• What part does the media play in
disseminating CIA propaganda? To what extent has the CIA infiltrated the Western
• How can US presidents continue to affirm the necessity of human rights and free
speech when they themselves authorize coups
and aid oppressive regimes?
• Can we afford to ignore the vital question of ethics and morality when discussing
CIA activities?
It is erroneous to think that the documentary is a film form that can show us the
Truth, since viewer manipulation can occur
in the documentary form as well as the fictional narrative. But given the level of
documentation and evidence in On Company
Business, one cannot afford to ignore what
this film illustrates.
The interviews in On Company Business
are conducted in almost a matter-of-fact
way, with ex-agents and exiles talking with
detachment about slayings and torture. It is
only when the film comes to an end, and a
montage of ex-presidents appears, that you
begin to realize the extent to which this
documentary has affected you.
One glaring technique of On Company
Business has to do with the film style,
which is loaded with medium and extreme
close-ups. On Company Business has more
close-ups than Marcel Ophuls' The Sorrow
and the Pity, thereby virtually guaranteeing
some emotional viewer response.
Yet On Company Business cannot be
faulted too much, perhpas not at all. When
filmmakers manage to cover a vast scope of
material within a limited time, as Fancovich,
producer Howard Dratch and researcher
Kathleen Weaver have done, one cannot help
but admire them for their effort—and, in this
case, success. If On Company Business leaves
a multitude of questions and doubts in your
mind about the necessity of an intelligence
agency like the CIA and the presidents who
hide behind "non directives and non
orders," it will have done its job. It's close to
being a great documentary.
"Reforms of the FBI and the CIA, even
removal of the president from office, cannot
remove the problem. American capitalism,
based as it is on exploitation of the poor,
with its fundamental motivation in personal
greed, simply cannot survive without
force—without a secret police force. The
argument is with capitalism and it is
capitalism that must be opposed, with its
CIA, FBI and other security agencies
understood as logical, necessary manifestations of a ruling class' determination to retain
power and privilege."

and tinsel to trendy go-go boots,

BOTTOM and pals . .
Studio 58's adaptation of A Midsummer Night's Dream is a lyrical,
lilting romance which spirals and
mushrooms into a dizzy love fantasy. From the opening scene the
audience is enamored — such are
the effects of this waking and
dreaming poetry.
Director Kathryn Shaw's '60s
style production retains all the mystery and humor of Shakespeare's
plot in an upbeat dream within a
dream bordering on extravaganza.
The set design is impressive: a harmony of simple stage architecture
and exotic, ornamental fashions.
Both practical and fantastic, the set
itself is a silver staircase, surrounded by clouds and rainbows.
A Midsummer Night's Dream
By William Shakespeare
Directed by Kathryn Shaw
At Studio 58 until Jan. 30
A Midsummer Night's Dream
emphasizes not unity of time, place
or events, but opposing ideas.
Shakespeare juxtaposes night with
day, city with woods, mortals with
fairies. And his poetic dialogue
echoes visual imagery, creating an
ever-widening scenic locale.
The plot, an interwoven tapestry
of several stories, begins in the ordered world of Greece, where Theseus, duke of Athens, and his fiancee, Hippolyta, plan to marry in
four days. Shakespeare then introduces the four young Athenian lovers, one of whom, the dark-haired
Hermia, refuses her father's orders
to marry her suitor Demetrius, in
favor of her true love, Lysander.
She and Lysander agree to elope to
the countryside. Ironically, while
Demetrius dotes incessantly upon
Hermia, Helena, the tall, blonde
maiden, chases after Demetrius.
As Helena, Nicole Robert resem-
in dizzy love fantasy
Shakespeare further complicates
his plot as Oberon orders Puck to
cast the same spell on Demetrius,
the unfaithful Athenian who rejects
his lover Helena only to woo Hermia. Ultimately Puck afflicts both
Demetrius and Lysander and the
two gents become Helena's suitors,
depicting an hilarious triangle of
courtship problems. Puck (Norma
Matheson), with her giggles, skips
and balletic gestures, enhances the
child-like craziness of the play. Until Puck liberates her victims from
the love potion, she twists the action ambiguously about the forest,
that upon wakening she falls in love
with the first beast she encounters
— Bottom, the ass. The cast's
makeup shimmers dynamically,
from the fairies' surreal silver
stripes to Oberon's gaudy blue hair.
In contrast to the organized Athenian society, Shakespeare presents
the licentious night time world of
the fairies, where king and queen
Oberon and Titania quarrel feverishly. Oberon, in a fit of jealousy,
orders Puck, his attendant elf, to
cast a magical spell upon Titania so
perching on the abyss of fantasy
and reality.
An exceedingly inept yet honest
company of actors who prepare a
comic interlude for the marriage
complete Shakespeare's intertwining plot. In the rehearsal, Bottom, a
weaver who boasts of his ability to
act any role, eventually plays the
buffoon as he is transformed into
an ass. To allow for the shifting
plot pattern Shaw varies the verse
form and line length. Combined
with Shakespeare's poetry, the actors' contemporary language, especially Bottom's slang, fully exploit
the rollicking, silly tone of the play.
The moon, a symbol of love, lunacy and illusion, the key to the production, affects the characters' actions. The lovers' gestures, for example, reflect each other in mirrored situations. Specifically, the affair
between Titania and Bottom the
ass, illuminates the absurdity of
everyone's actions. Thus, the so-
called ordered world of Athens incites the anarchy of the fairy world.
And the play within a play, Pyra-
mus and Thisby, epitomizes the lunacy of the mortals' awkward reactions. The select audience of the
duke, his wife and the court laugh
and sip champagne, remain oblivious to their theatrical semblance.
Flute (David Glove) who plays the
female lover Thisby, captures the
audience with his throbbing farce of
a suicide.
Despite the subtle flaws in speech
and musical scoring, Studio 58 renders an exhilarating production.
The audience remains enthralled,
encompassed in the play's waves of
fantasy, until Puck's epilogue
guides us back to the ordinary.

Bogdanovich...at long last success
SEATTLE — You know you're
in America when you're greeted at
the airport by two sombre-looking
individuals promoting nuclear
power and carrying signs that state,
without a hint of subtlety or
declamation, "Feed Jane Fonda to
the whales."
One's first reaction is as jnish-
ment, then laughter. The best thing
to do in these circumstances is to ignore the couple. Don't worry, you
tell yourself, one day a Di. Frank-
looks like a leftover from the '30s.
Bogdanovich finally arrives, now
awaited anxiously by two television
crews. Under bright lights which
create the illusion of a marvelously
lit theatre, Bogdanovich sets down
to discuss not only his new film,
They All Laughed, but also the late
Dorothy Stratten, the media's current preoccupation. Questions
about Stratten multiply.
Bogdanovich speaks affectionately
of her and plugs a book he's writing
about   her,    D.R.S.   (1960-1980).

party includes a CKVU television

the place. With its grand foyer, it
The   CKVU   crew is   impressed;
Stratten is a major local interest.
Later, at a news conference,
questions about Stratten are still
coming, this time from a Province
writer (the reason for pursuing the
matter becomes clear two days later
— the Province is devoting the
front page to sensational stories
about Stratten's death.)
"It's probably the best picture
I've made," says Peter
Bogdanovich of They All Laughed.
"I don't know how to make a better picture," he adds. His claim is
contentious, but the man has a job
to do, and he's doing it the best way
possible — by being jubilant about
his film.
They All Laughed, which is being released in selected markets,
was shelved by 20th Century Fox
for more than a year (Fox gave
Robert Altman's Health a similar
treatment). Understandably,
Bogdanovich accuses the company
of mishandling the film.
"The funny thing about it is," he
says, "that the executives at Fox
loved the film. The point is they
thought it was too clever and
sophisticated for the public. Can
you imagine that? I don'i think any
of them has made a movie before."
He is at pains to stress that 20th
Century Fox did not finance the
whole film, which had a budget of
$8.6 million. Fox put up $350,000
for advertising and publicity. When
the deal with Fox fell through,
Bogdanovich arranged a new deal.
The funds for completing the film
and marketing it came from Time-
Life films, P.S.O., and his own
company, Moon pictures, which is
distributing the final product.
Bogdanovich sees They All
Laughed as a "personal story in
the disguise of a detective story."
"Any movie you make is personal," he says. "An
autobiographical movie is another
thing. They All Laughed is
autobiographical." John Ritter,
who in the film resembles
Bogdanovich, is "me at 30," the
director says. He doesn't elaborate
on any substantive parallels, but the
statement adds a superficial
credence to his claim that They All
Laughed is "autobiographical."
Bogdanovich says he likes to improvise during shooting a film.
They All Laughed, he says, went
through several rewrites during production. "Take, for example, the
wedding scene (at the end of the
film)," he says. "I said (:o Colleen
Camp, who plays country singer
Christy Miller), 'Just keep on talking. Say whatever you want. What
do people say at weddings?' "
Bogdanovich says he follows
director John Ford's views on filmmaking. "What you do is just an
accident. A director is a man who
presides over accidents," he quotes
Ford as saying. Another influence
on Bogdanovich has been Orson
Welles, whose works he admires.
In his book Pieces of Time,
Bogdanovich pays tribute to
Welles. When he saw Citi2:en Kane
at 16, he says "it was the first time I
remember consciously realizing that
an overwhelming presence was
possible to exist behind the camera.
I'd thought vaguely about directing
before that, but now it became a
conscious ambition."
Bogdanovich reflects on Welles'
cinematic musings: Welles once told
him, he says, "that the bad thing
about film was that it was canned.
You lose all the freshness if it's canned for long. You've got to keep
the feeling that it's happening right
then, and that you've caught it."
"That's what I tried to do with
They All Laughed," says
Bogdanovich glosses over his
failures, like Daisy Miller (1974), At
Long Last Love (1975), and
Nickelodeon (1976). He admits,
however, that At Long Last Love, a
disasterous attempt at recording
live musical numbers on film, "was
terrible," and that he made "a couple of bad movies."
He hopes that They All Laughed
will be a commercial success on the
level of Paper Moon. Athough he is
committed to direct his next project, Paradise Road, Bogdanovich
says he is considering making a film
in Canada. "I've been thinking of
making a movie in Canada. In
Western Canada. A western." It
pays to say such things to an attentive Vancouver press corps.
It's 5 p.m., and the news conference comes to an end. All of us
are contented with our notes, rest
assured that for Bogdanovich, the
picture show has started all over
again. Back at the airport, there is
no sign of Biad and Janet —
perhaps Riff Raff was here after all.

The Firebugs certainly ignites a

Apparently this theme is due solely to director Leon Pownall. Fie has
used the original play only as a
loose frame for his own innovative
ideas. Pownall takes a lot of

Just when you thought it was safe to return to the ballot box...
that's right folks. It's time to elect your favourite candidate or non-
candidate to the Alma Mater Society executive. These are the people
who will manage the largest student society west of Ontario (not to
mention Shaughnessy) and all UBC students are eligible voters. So
either read up on the candidates or don't read up on the candidates,
then either vote, don't vote, forget to vote or spoil your ballot.
The president is responsible for chairing and
setting the agendas for student council
meeting. Besides these odious tasks and attending university receptions for everything
imaginable, the president is the liason between council and the hired staff, and is
responsible to student council for the
society's pubic relations. The lucky incumbent also gets to at least try to coordinate the
actions of the executive, council, staff, and
Talk. And more talk.
That is the least students can expect from
AMS presidential candidate Dave Frank if
they vote for him.
Frank stresses improved communication
between the AMS and students and increased
student participation, but doesn't say how
they will come about. The only assurance he
can give students is he feels both factors can
"tackle problems on campus."
Frank, presently the science undergraduate
society president, agrees there is a housing
crisis but all he can promise students is that
he will look into it once he is elected.
"Residence is a good deal," he says, "but
there isn't enough of it. Acadia Park is
something I'd look at almost as soon as I
would come into office."
Of the other major issues facing students,
FRANK . . . tackle problems
Frank has a firm position on only one. He
thinks the SUB renovations referendum
should be passed. "That's because science
and a lot of other clubs have had real problems booking rooms, he says.
The pending 30 per cent fee hike is "a bit
too high in a one shot deal," he says, but
feels students can't "look at tuition fees" for
accessible education. "I'm for improving the
student aid program," he says.
Frank says he doesn't "know anything
about" B.C. PIRG, the public interest
research group on campus. He also doesn't
have a position on the now cancelled TA
strike tomorrow. "I don't know much about
the situation," he said.
On the issue of The Ubyssey autonomy
drive, Frank is equally undecided but says he
would tend to support it. "But I'd want some
input into it," he adds.
What substance Frank lacks in his platform and stand on issues, he makes up for in
his enthusiasm. "I really don't want to tell
students what to think," he claims, preferring instead to stress the answers he gives are
only "personal opinions" when pressed for
his views.
Frank is looking for student support on the
basis of his record as science undergraduate
society president. He says he worked for improved communication between the science
society and science students, and feels he can
use the same approach once he is elected. Undoubtedly, what is good for the science faculty is also good for the rest of the university.
Or so Frank thinks.
Chris Fulker's main reason for running in
the AMS election is because it's fun. And
he's been having lots of fun!
Fulker has run for everything possible
since he decided to become engaged in
politics back in 1979, including BoG, vice-
president and Vancouver city council. He
was elected to the senate last year and will be
FULKER . . . just for fun
defending that seat as well as running for
AMS president.
Fulker waffles on all the issues — "what
issues?" — and is contradictory in all his answers.
"I don't expect to win," he said. So why is
he running?
"Because it's fun, and I would promote
real change if elected," he answers.
One of these real changes is the abolishment of SAC.
"One person is sufficient to run the whole

From page 11
AMS bureaucracy," he said.
Fulker said that once elected, he would not
sit on his backside and do nothing; but he
adds he would only get up if students give
sufficient motivation.
What does he feel are the duties of an AMS
"The AMS president is the spokesperson
of council. He spends his time pushing papers to others, and he glows in job satisfaction," he said.
Asked what goals he would try to achieve
as president Fulker can't think of any at first,
but then, yes, decides that his goal would be
to simplify booking procedures for SUB.
Asked what his position is on such major
issues as fee increases, housing accessibility
and university cutbacks in general, Fulker responded that these are not really issues at all.
*'Why should the AMS take a stand on the
issues? Why should it become political? The
students are a bunch of sheep; most of them
don't even care about fee increases. If the
students come to me, I'll voice my opinion,
but who cares? I'll write some articles in The
Ubyssey, sure; what more do you want from
Jon Gates is running as part of a "time fqr
a change" slate of candidates who share the
same goals and objectives. For an outline of
Gates' platform, see the slate outline.
Vice pres
The vice president is responsible for maintaining council correspondence and records
and chairing the budget committee. Other
than that they take direction from council
and have a fairly free reign to work on
whatever they want. As chair of the budget
committee, the vice president is responsible
for coordinating the committee that sets a
multi-million  dollar  annual  AMS  budget.
Gord Comer is running as part of a "time

Cliff Stewart wants to change the Alma
Mater Society. He feels the quality of education at UBC has deteriorated to such an extent that it is time for the students to speak
"The AMS has traditionally been non-
political. That must change if we are to initiate changes for the better at UBC," Stewart
"I want to initiate the second phase of a
two-phase society," he continued boldly.
Stewart says he wants to continue to operate AMS services at present levels, but wants
the society to also focus on the burning issues
STEWART . . . political involvement
of fee increases, cutbacks, housing, and accessibility.
"The reason the AMS has been 'away'
from all political activity is because of its lack
of leadership," he said.
The vice president's functions, he said, include aiding the president, chairing the budget committee and keeping minutes at meetings. He adds that aside from all this, the VP
is given a lot of leeway to provide leadership
and organizational functions.
Stewart's immediate task, if elected, would
be to initiate a provincial voter registration
drive for students. This would be necessary
to mobilize all students for maximum representation in the next provincial election.
Once he has been given a mandate Stewart
said he will return to the students to seek input on the issues affecting them. Another
goal of his is to streamline AMS services already in existence.
"The AMS cannot operate on a deficit. If
the AMS budget ever does reach deficit levels
it will be because of poor management,"
Stewart said.
Stewart is another candidate who is fairly
hazy on the issues. He has very vague and
sometimes idealistic ideas on how to solve
students' problems.
He said, for example, that student aid in its
present form is unacceptable. Although he
cannot specify any solutions, he said it is all a
matter of mobilizing student opinion against
the federal and provincial governments.
On the issue of BCPIRG, he waffled until
confronted with a plain yes or no; he then
said he would vote no, but couldn't give a
justifiable explanation.
Stewart's experience includes being a member of the presidential advisory committees
on land use and on traffic and parking. He
has been the secretary of SAC and has had a
stint as SUB commissioner.
Although Stewart does appear fairly vague
on implementing solutions to student problems, he has realized that the AMS must
become the voice of the students.
The director of finance is responsible for
overseeing the financial affairs of the AMS.
While this doesn't sound like much at first,
by the time undergraduate society, clubs and
other funds are included, it comes to more
than $3 million. The director of finance is
responsible for putting the AMS budget
together and submitting it to the budget committee.
Margaret Copping is running as part of a
"time for a chnge" slate of candidates who
share the same objectives and goals. For
Copping's platform, see the slate outline.
James Hollis is running for the position of
director of finance because "I see the need
for well-rounded expertise in this position."
Having apparently exhausted the
challenges which faced him as outgoing external affairs officer, Hollis is prepared to bring
"responsible fiscal management" to the
Alma Mater Society. "I see my job as training and orienting all of the treasurers of the
various undergraduate societies because
when procedures are followed correctly,
there's no problem — communication in this
area is a very important part of the job," he
Hollis said the director of finance should
be a watchdog for the various businesses the
AMS operates. He claimed he would try to
provide maximum services to students at a
minimal cost, citing the Pit as a potential area
for more efficient management.
Hollis cited the SUB games room as an example of efficient management. "Last year
we examined the games room, found a better
supplier, and now it generates around 60 per
cent more revenue," Hollis said.
Hollis said he was also in favor of dropping the AMS fee levy from Filmsoc prices,
adding "the money could be made up by
more efficiency in other businesses."
Hollis described himself as a moderate, but
well rounded
to the left of centre. As to his previous experience, he claimed: "One of my major
coups as external affairs officer is a much
more aware student union that is better informed on governmental education policy
than they have been in recent history."
Hollis added "The scope I would bring to
the job is much greater than the other candidates — you can't run the AMS just using a
balance sheet, you need knowledge of what is
important to student concerns."
Hollis was hesitant in describing what
specific concerns he meant, but when questioned on the issue of funding cutbacks he
said he would be favourable, within reason,
to funding a major protest.
"We are basically a conservative campus
preferring dialogue to demonstrations, but (if
I was elected) the Students for an Accessible
Education committee would receive
favourable consideration from this year's
council," he said.
On the teaching assistants dispute, Hollis
said "The administration's union smashing
tactics are unconscionable — TA's have to
receive a reasonable rate of renumeration if
the quality of UBC graduate students is to remain high."
"Good political representation is one of
the most important services student leaders
can provide in light of recent governmental
policy," he said.
Alan Pinkney, whose bright pink posters
are plastered all over campus, could use a bit
more color.
He would be a competent director of finance and probably wouldn't screw up the
books, but idea wise he's running a deficit.
"Students complain and bitch but are too
apathetic to do anything. I think the student
administrative commission is a good place to
be active. I want to continue to do something
for the students and I'm concerned about
apathy," he said.
Pinkney said he would make sure the
budget is always clear. "Jane Loftus (outgoing director of finance) never hid anything in
her budget. I promise to carry on her job of
PINKNEY . . . continue honesty
honesty," claimed the candidate.
"This year was a tight year. Places where
we took money away we have to put back
next year," Pinkney said.
He is concerned about housing and tuition
fees. "There has to be an availability of
funds. Tuition fees have to go up, but not 30
per cent. I think 15 per cent is reasonable."
Pinkney is in favor of the SUB referendum. "We have a terrible shortage of bookable rooms. There's too much demand," he
B.C. PIRG also gets Pinkney's stamp of
approval. He thinks that if students want to
vote for it, they should control it. Both in
idea, and with some hesitation, in practice,
he supports PIRG.
"The Ubyssey is in a powerful position. As
long as the paper realizes it and doesn't abuse
it, I think Ubyssey autonomy is a great idea,"
he said. "There were significant improvements in the paper this year as a result
of the editorial collective."
As for experience, Pinkney has a good
background with business. "I learned how to
deal with people working in my fahter's business," he said. And anything to do with
money really interests him, he added.
"I'm willing and able to put in the time.
What is best for the students is my number
one priority," he said. "I know a great deal
about the job because I was involved last
Pink may be hot, but Pinkney's not.

(not theirselves) in relations with organizations outside UBC. This includes other student societies, federal and provincial studenl

of a head cheerleader.
The third year education student is a candidate for the position of external affairs officer. Although a trifle short on ideas and

practical experience, she conveys a self-
assured, smooth conversational manner, and
conviction which seems genuine.
"I'm running because I am confident I
could contribute to the job — I'm not looking for experience, I have it and I want to apply it," she said.
She described her credentials as being a
woman's unit manager in intramurals, an
AMS bookings rep, involvement in the inter-
fraternities council, and experience as a
manager and participant in amateur athletics.
I've been watching external affairs from afar,
and it intrigues me because no one really

their profile on campus. "I admired the recent full page ad in the Vancouver Sun on

Southard said the basis of the external affairs office was to be more visible. "We
should work our way down from council to
the undergraduate societies to the classroom
for discussion and to inform."
Southard advocated a breaking down of all
the components of the cutbacks issue. "We
should approach housing, student aid, etc.,
individually, the whole issue itself is too large
to handle."
On tuition fee increases, Southard said "I
think tuition should increase at the same rate
as inflation, but there should be greater concentration on financial aid. As an education
student I've seen the visible effects of cutbacks."
Southard called for more cooperation between the AMS president, student board reps,
and the external affairs officer, on the
grounds that the positions had shared interests.
If elected, she said "my job is to coordinate and communicate the opinions of

The director of administration is responsible to student council for the operation of
SUB and the chairing of the Student Administrative Commission. SAC is in turn
responsible for most club affairs as UBC and
the operation of SUB, so the DoA's area of
responsibility are fairly large. The incumbent
gets to implement many of the policies of student council and is responsible to council for
the operation of SAC, and its associated subcommittees, including Whistler Cabin,
Thunderbird Winter Sports Centre, Aquatic
Centre, elections, and, last but not least, the
art gallery.
COX Terry
A review of every major Alma Mater
Society policy and business operations and
more nickel photocopiers are just some of the
goals of Terry Cox.
"The position is a hell of a challenge. It's
an enormous job," Cox said.
The Student Administrative Commission,
which the director of administration chairs,
must operate as an entity he said. Cox will
call weekly SAc commissioner meetings to
co-ordinate SAC affairs to ensure action occurs.
"When I came to SAC (as clubs commissioner), it did not operate as an entity."
During his two month term of office Cox

The proposed SUB renovations are
desperately needed by clubs, both in terms of
space for offices and club fund raising.
"The AMS has been non-political in
university politics in the last few years," Cox
said. He blamed this on attitudes in student
council. "People speak on issues at council
but don't do anything outside (the
Cox would like to see more UBC students
register to vote provincially. If students get
political clout, people are going to have to
listen to us about cutbacks."
Cox said tuition fees increases of 10 to 15
per cent annually were "fair," since it was
near the inflation rate. The proposed 30 per
cent increase for next year is "excessive," he
said. Student aid has not kept up with tuition
or cost of living increases and that should
change, he added.
Cox served as vice president of Yakima
Valley College student association, performing many of the AMS administration director's duties, he said. Cox has been an arts
representative to student council and a SAC
clubs commissioner.
Dana Perlman is running as part of a
"time for a change" slate of candidates who
share the same objectives and goals. For
Perlman's picture and platform, see the slate
AMS slate seeks return to student activism
"We want a return to activist student
politics. They're not dirty words," Those
words came from Jon Gates, presidential
candidate for a slate which hopes to team up
with student board of governor and senate
representatives to accomplish some rather
ambitious ideas.
Joining Gates, arts 3, on the slate, are:
Gord Comer, arts 2, running for vice-
president; Margaret Copping, arts 2, candidate for director of finance; Dana
Perlman, arts 3, running for director of administration; and Charles Menzies, science 2,
gunning for external affairs office.
The group, who are directly connected to
the board of governors and senate slate
reviewed last week in the Ubyssey, unsurprisingly share a number of the platforms
espoused by their board and senate cohorts.
The group criticized administration president Doug Kenny for giving in to the provincial government and forming the retrenchment committee, suggesting that Kenny
should have backed up briefs and presenta
tions to the government with aggressive actions.
Gates suggested the time was right for a
repeat of the Great Trek, when over half a
century ago UBC students organized a protest which resulted in the government
acknowledging student demands and
establishing the UBC campus on its present
Gates added that issues today were similar
in magnitude to the issues which inspired the
original Great Trek.
The slate has been engaged in research
about the feasibility of student initiated and
subsidized housing for the past several months.
They have talked to credit unions and consultants about details entailed in such a proposal, and have hopes to present students
with a referendum on the issue. Regarding
land availability on campus, Gates said "the
administration would be in a difficult iposi-
tion to deny it if we sufficiently demonstrated
the need and the capacity for new student
Copping stressed that as director of
finance she would look into whether AMS
funds were being used in a socially responsive
way, referring specifically to the issue of investing student funds in banks which were involved in countries with repressive regimes.
In concert with Copping, director of administration candidate Perlman suggested
that the finance and administration directors
get together to encourage undergraduate
societies to bring in more speakers and programs of academic and cultural interest to
"Beer gardens and concerts are fine, but
you have to provide more than that,"
Perlman said.
On raised tuition fees and cutbacks, Comer spoke for the group when he said "We
don't accept retrenchment-in addition to an
increased financial burden the 30 per cent tuition fee increase will present perceptual problems to students considering attending
UBC, and in an indirect way further inaccessibility."
The group was unanamously in favor of
the upcoming SUB renovations and PIRG
referendums, and encouraged students to
vote in support of the referendums.
The principle reason the slate felt it warranted student support in the elections was
the solidarity among the group membership.
As Comer put it, "If one person is running
alone, you can't guarantee accomplishing
anything because you don't know who you
will be working with. If elected, as a slate we
will be able to accomplish group objectives.
The slate hopes to carry the same teamwork over into relations with other universities and their student associations. "There
should be a global awareness between
students, we should be an example and give
whatever moral and financial assistance we
possibly can to students throughout the rest
of the province, the country, and the world,"
external affairs candidate Menzies said.
The group slammed past AMS actions,
saying "the people who got us into this mess
certainly aren't qualified to get us out,"
meeting enthusiastic approval.

Psyched out
Part of the game played at the bargaining table in contract negotiations
is psychological. The teaching assistant union just got psyched out.
Faced with the possibility of a one day strike that would have reaped bad
publicity, bane of this administration, on the university, employee relations
director Bob Grant returned to the negotiating table to get a settlement.
Union negotiators, rather than sticking to their original proposals, simply
bowed to the administration and accepted a security clause which will
mean additional cost in time and money for filing grievences with the
labour relations board when option cards are not completed next fall.
Union security has not been improved in this memorandum of agreement, wages have not either. Five months of negotiating are wasted. The
mistake in accepting a flawed security clause is evident. But the union also
made a tactical error by not holding the strike to test the university administration. We will never know if they were capable of moving from their
solidly anchored original proposal.
What we do know is that a dangerous precedent has been set by the
teaching assistant union for other campus union's negotiations.
Pretentious picks
It's time once again for The Ubyssey to make its pretentious and vile
recommendations for Alma Mater Society executive.
Slate member Jon Gates is an obvious choice for president, as is fellow

Terry Cox seems to have the capabilities and experience for administration director, but slate candidate Dana Perlman has some good ideas, so

Slate candidate Charles Menzies for external affairs is simply not credible. He has some good ideas now, but one year ago they were vastly different. Cynthia Southard has some good ideas, but we are unsure, so we'll

Vote 'yes' to renovate Student Union Building
The Student Union Building is
the focal point for extracurricular
student activities. SUB provides
two important services for student
1) Bookable space — rooms
range from small study areas to
large party and meeting rooms, to
the SUB ballroom for concerts and
dances. Any student organization
can book these rooms for their activities at little or no cost.
2) Office space — any student organization or club wishing to hold
meetings, provide working and/or
facilities, needs space for their activities and equipment. SUB pro
vides student organizations with office space.
However, each year the demand
for these services increases, and the
available space does not. Right
now, 35 office spaces are shared
among 160 clubs. Also, there is an
80 per cent turnaway rate for student organizations attempting to
book rooms in SUB. Most of this
unfilled demand is for the larger
party rooms.
The proposed renovations on
SUB will provide space of the kind
most desperately needed — club
workshop/office space and party
room space. This additional space
will use areas of SUB that will cost
the least to upgrade. The unfinished
basement already has electricity,
foundations, and a shell, and needs
the addition of another fire exit,
partitions, and flooring. The conversation lounge needs only the addition of partitions, exits, flooring,
and a water supply.
Also, the listening lounge area —
popular during the day for a relaxing and socializing area — will only
be booked during the evening. It
will therefore retain its 'conversation lounge' function during the
day when the student population is
highest. Only half of the conversation lounge will be renovated. The
other half of the conversation
lounge (including the conversation
pit) will not be changed and will retain its lounge function in the evening.
So remember — when you want
to book a space for meetings, or
when you want to use facilities or
equipment at the cheapest rates in
town, come to SUB. For example,
clubs such as photosoc, the varsity
outdoors club, and aquasoc provide
you with darkroom facilities, sports
equipment, and ski cabins as well as
instruction in your new interest or
And, if you want the services for
student organizations improved,

As engineering students we support, in principle, any endeavor

its principles and practices reflect
our own engineering ethics.
The methods that BCPIRG advocates  in  promoting  the  public

sacred to the engineer. BCPIRG is
founded on the idea that positions
on public issues should only be
taken on the basis of fact, as backed
up by research. This is a well-
entrenched principle of engineering
BCPIRG actively solicits the participation of all students, including
engineering students. A broad,
multi-disciplinary base is important
to avoid domination by special interest factions. The participation of
engineering students is vital to the
proper evaluation of engineering
aspects of public issues.

slanderous remarks about stuffy student politicians. "Yep, we're all ready for the big strike,"
replied Glen Sanford as he massaged Nancy Campbell's back. Shaffin Sheriff offered to
cover the event and promised to have no weak expletives in his story. "Make it no more than
75 inches," yelled Eric Eggertson and Brian Jones in unison. Wendy Cumming promised she
would keep an eye for roaming Trots, and Anne Marie Fleming promised to smash any other

Julie Wheelwright supported the Ubyssey strike in spirit, if not in person. Ubyssey organizer

TA strike's off, come to class Friday
The university administration
and the teaching assistants have
been engaged in contract negotiations since September, and continue
to be in contact to this date. But
despite this long process, which included intervention by the provincial mediator, a settlement has yet
to be reached. The teaching
assistants union therefore feels
compelled to take job action in
order to get a better offer from the
administration. This will begin with
a one day strike on Friday, Jan. 22.
During the negotiations the TAs
have made many concessions: wage
demands have been reduced
significantly, contentious nonmonetary clauses on quality of
education and present conditions
have been dropped, and t ie security
proposal has been redrawn along
lines suggested by the provincial
mediator. The only response the ad-
Wear black on Black Tuesday
We are now in the midst of our
yearly political extravaganza. For
those who are gluttons for political
propaganda, and can get by those
hideous smiles, you have probably
noticed the "out on the limb" stand
that most of our politicians have
taken on tuition fee increases. Over
and over 1 have read that tuition
should be kept to the inflation rate.
What I want to know is why?
Student wages in the summer
have not been tied to the inflation
rate. Housing prices have far exceeded the inflation rate. So why tie
tuition to the inflation rate? In fact
if tuition was kept the same as this
year we would be paying more in
service provided.
I'll use an example to illustrate
my point. Say you wanted to buy a
car and you had looked around and
decided on the car you wanted, but
told the dealer that you would come
in to buy it the following year.
When you returned one year later
you found that the cost of the car
had increased 30 per cent and in addition it had a smaller engine, bad
brakes, and a rusting body.
You would no doubt be outraged, but yet that is what our politicians are advocating. Why should
we pay more for larger classes, less
professor and teaching assistant
time, less course selection and
numerous other repurcussions of
the present cutbacks?
On Tuesday the Board of Governors will meet to decide tuition fee
increases based on the recommendations of the "entrenchment"
committee. That committee is their
infinite wisdom has decided that
tuitions should increase between
30-33 per cent. At the board
meeting there will be a lot of rational discussion and that will come
to the decision to raise tuition only
25 per cent. At this point students
are to jump with glee and our politicians will say "Well at least it was
not 33 per cent."
The Students for an Accessible
Education realize that this is
another deathnail in accessible
education for all those in our society. The SAE stands for no tuition
increase because we as students
have paid our share by having the
quality of our education attacked
by huge cutbacks.
The SAE is sponsoring Black
Tuesday on Tuesday to emphasize
the plight of the student who is
caught in the web of underfunding.
We would encourage everyone to
wear black clothing or a black armband. It may not affect vou but you
can be assured that plenty of present and future students will be affected. Also if you consider post-
secondary education worth saving,
get involved!
Don't wait until it's too late and
someone from the University of
Alberta gets hired over you because
the employer knows that the quality
of UBC's education has suffered
through provincial government
underfunding. The education you
save may be your future. Mourn the
slow death of accessible education.

ministration made to all these concessions was a three dollar increase
in wages.
The TAs feel they have reached a
bottom line position which they
must defend on the two paramount
issues, wages and union security.
We do not expect full support from
a TA wage, but the increase in our
next contract should parallel the increasing cost of going to this university. The administration has
reported that the cost of attending
UBC increased by 25 per cent this
year. Consistent with this, TAs requested a 21 per cent wage increase,
which included a six unit course
rebate already enjoyed by other
campus unions. The administration
only offered 15 per cent. We are
concerned that if wages do not keep
pace with education costs, graduate
students will not be able lo come to
this university and eventually the
entire graduate program will be
In response to the argument that
the university cannot afford to offer higher wages, it is important to
note that the TAs wage demands
represent less than one third of one
per cent of the university's total
operating budget. Furthermore, the
number of building sites, road construction, and landscaping projects
now underway on campus
demonstrate that the administration
has money. What it does not have is
a sensible set of priorities for spending it.
On the other vital issue, union
security, the TAs proposal would
allow every new TA to decide,
within 30 days of
appointment,whether he or she
wishes to join the union. No one
could be forced to join. The wording of the proposal has been
modified as suggested by the provincial mediator to ease
bureaucratic problems, while still
ensuring that every new TA can
make a free and informed choice.
The TA union is not taking job
action because it wants to, but
because it must. We have bargained
in good faith and have made as
many concessions as possible. Our
demands are necessary to ensure
that graduate students can continue
to attend UBC, and that they have a
viable union to safeguard their interests. We hope all students, staff
and faculty share our commitment
to the quality of education at this
university and will support us by
not crossing the picket line. Stay
home on Friday.

A modest proposal for UBC's woes
It is a melancholy object to those who
walk across this great campus when they see
overcrowded classrooms full of comatose
students learning theory. It is a tragedy that
when intellectually endowed youth arrive at
the peak of their vitality that they must
forego the adventure of their age to be sequestered from society in such an institution as UBC.
Though many students still enjoy the
fruits of enterprise — fast cars, material
trends and other erotica — they often do so
not as a reward from society, but as encour-
agement from their parents. Few students
earn their rewards by contributing to society because it is unfeasible for them to do
so; they must presently attend class and
read to attain a degree.
Paradoxically, the proper function of the
university is only complicated and hindered
by the presence of literally thousands of
amateur intellectuals (students). Professors
could more effectively carry out their research without the intrusion of student inquiries, the burden of teaching classes and
marking essays and exams.
I believe it is agreed by all parties that the
time spent by students sitting in classrooms,
reading books, and doing assignments,
could be better spent contributing to the immediate needs of society and most importantly, to the gross national product.
As to my own part, having turned my
thoughts for many weeks upon this important subject, I have devised a scheme by
which society, the university, and the thousands of young, intelligent people would
greatly benefit. Being of the conviction to
improve also the financial situation of the
university — the $7.2 million funding shortfall notwithstanding — my scheme would
ensure ample funds for research while lessening the burden on our country's taxpayers. Past budget shortfalls have been
wrongly blamed on the provincial authorities; such false accusations would have no
cause if my scheme were implemented.
It is consistent with the reasoning of our
province's leaders that those who use the
education system should pay for its use. It is
for this reason, knowing the worth of the
government's opinion, that my scheme
would see such a philosophy taken to its
logical end. Thus those who receive degrees
would be primarily responsible for funds to
ers would be greatly relieved of the burden
of taxes which pay for post-secondary education: payments by the federal and provincial governments would decrease by 50
per cent. The extra money in the pockets of
taxpayers would naturally generate more
money into our troubled economy, effectively combating (in an albeit modest manner) the recession we are now experiencing.
operate UBC. If one must purchase the required capital to make a profit, so too
should students pay for the required education which pays them dividends.
It is for these reasons that my scheme
would call for a greater financial commitment from students, initially in the order of
a 100 per cent tuition fee increase. So as not
to inconvenience students, my proposal
would increase the amount of time at their
disposal to earn money to pay for their various degrees by a factor of three.
In addition to making users pay, taixpay-
It might concern the economically-minded individual at this point that present UBC
fiscal needs would not be met. While this is
true, my scheme would reduce the apparent
size of the operating budget, but not so as
to disrupt the important research projects
in all faculties nor to lessen the number of
professors or assistants.
The apparent loss of 40 per cent in funding would be more than compensated for by
money saved on a reduction in classes and
student services. To briefly name a few of
the savings:  heating, lighting and main
taining buildings such as Buchanan; administrative expenses (secretaries) and cafeteria
facilities (all too numerous on campus). After purchasing their degrees, students would
have no further need to use campus facilities; they would remain off campus, pursuing enterprise in the real world of society.
Finally, my proposal would end the negative public view to which UBC — and universities in general — have been subjected
in the past, i.e. as an ivory tower. Students
would no longer be isolated from society.
Having chosen their disciplines and having
paid their tuition fees, students qualified by
their secondary school performance would
receive their degrees and proceed into the
world of enterprise. Those inclined to research, of course, would attend the university on a regular basis, as students do now,
to ensure the continuous training of learned
The monies saved by the elimination of
unnecessary classes would facilitate a proportional reduction in the university's operating budget. Thus the university would be
spared of retrenchment.
Society, for years deprived of this pool of
young talent, would benefit from the skills
of able-bodies, able-minded individuals
much sooner than it is now accustomed.
Professors would carry out their research in
the presence of only those students who
want to be professors. Students would be
able to enjoy the prime of their youth, making a living instead of burying their noses in
books and burdening the good taxpayer.
I profess, in the sincerity of my heart,
that I have not the least personal interest in
endeavoring to promote this necessary
work, having no other motive than the
good of my university, the relief of the taxpayer, the fulfillment of our youth, and the
improvement of our economy. I have already spent three tiresome years at UBC
and am beyond the point of personal benefit from this proposal.
Perspectives is a column of wit and
analysis open to the witty and analytical
members of the university community.

The female form
One year after my first menses, my body
began to show a massy quality. My hips, belly and thighs suddenly disgusted me, when
only months before I was unconscious of
their size.
Two years of self-disgust culminated in a
massive four-week effort to loose weight. My
initial delight at the twenty-pound loss again
turned to disgust at the gradual reappearance
of those massy middle parts.
Recently, I have become calmly resigned to
heading directly to the largest size on the
rack. Still, slender women and the ever-
elusive size 12 would give me a twinge which
said only one thing: failure.
Last week I read an article compiled of excerpts from Kim Chernin's book: The Obsession: Reflections on the Tyranny of
Slenderness. In it, Chernin questions the
twentieth century diet mania, the directions
of feminism, and the ironic alienation of the
female from her physical and symbolic
Today, it is estimated by the Harvard
Medical School Health Letter that 20 million
Americans are engaged in one diet or
another. Never in history have so many been
obsessed with weight loss. It is of primary importance that 95 percent of these dieters are
female. An expert on eating disorders, Dr.
Hilde Bruch of Houston's Baylor college of
Medicine, estimates that 90 percent of those
suffering from anorexia nervosa are female,
and almost all those suffering from bulimia
a binge and vomit syndrome, are also female.
Can it be that there are more obese women
than men in America? It is improbable. The
question lies not in obesity; it lies in the
modern sexual pressure to lose weight.
There are few men that agonize over gaining
two to five pounds, and yet there are
thousands of women that do so daily.
Chernin offers impressive facts which
point to the probability that the issue is not
medical. The medical society today is beginning to question the relation between the lithe
frame and a healthy constituion, as in this
quote from the New York Times:
The charts we all use to define our proper
weight, compiled in 1959 by 26 American insurance companies, could well be inadequate. The
are being reviewed, says Chernin, and the norms
should rise by 10 percent. Dr. R. Andres of the National Institute on Aging believes that, "Those
charts on doctor's walls are not desirable if you
wans to live longer."
Dr. George Mann of the United States Department of Health and Human Services has said,
"There is little to support the widespread dogma
of the health education programs that regard
obesity as a cause for high blood pressure."
The correlation between heart disease and
body weight is being challenged: Stacy C.
FitzSimmons of the Department of
Epidemiology at the University of California
claims thee have been to distinctions made
between being overweight and being obese.
Too many physiological factors have been ignored.
It is now believed that the very lean person
is equally, if not more, included to health
risks, a person 10 percent below average body
weight actually faces the greatest danger of
heart disease (the next being those 35 percent
overweight) according to the 1980 Journal of
the American Medical Association.
Will American Women listen to these new
medical facts? It seems we must first begin to
see the matter of weight loss in a moral and
philosophical light. Chernin doubts there will
be a decline in the diet mania until the issues
of feminist power are realized in relation to
the intangible effects of the female form. The
purpose and direction of feminism must be
re-examined; and one primary factor of this
examination must be the great and symbolic
force of the female body.
A woman's power to bear and protect
children   has,   throughout   history,   been
reflected in her form. Ample hips and thighs
offer not only the physical capacity to bear
children but the literal and symbolic girth to
protect them. According to Chernin, this archetypal power, although it first manifests
itself to children, is never forgotten and remains a strong influence on adults.
Today in America the large fleshy woman
is considered overbearing, even ugly. This
negative vision of the large woman is relatively new. Less than 100 years ago the ample
woman was fashionable and the flowing
dresses reflected this fashion.
Feminism, however, was not a full fledged
social phenomenom at this time. Alongside
the surge of women into the greater social
realm came the trend to mold the female
body into male proportions. Thus, in the 20's
came bobbed hair and the flat bosom; in the
60's burnt bras and Twiggy frames; in the
70's pants suits and lithe figures; and in the
80's business suits and bony hips. Compare,
for example the belly of Marlene Dietrich to
the bones of Farrah Fawcett!
Why are modern women trying so hard to
melt away the very substance which denotes
their sexuality? According to Chernin, our
culture is still male-dor.linated. The full
woman may have held few threats in the kitchen, but in the larger realm her very size
became inexplicably frightening—to men and
women alike. It is ironic, and debilitating to
the feminist cause, that women have agreed
to these physical restrictions. To be a successful and accepted member of today's
society must women take-on the physical
angularity of the male? The suggestion seems
absurd and yet evidence for such *
phenomenom is everywhere; in the worlds of
fashion, media and business. The attractive
woman today has the legs of an adolescent
and the belly of a man.
After reading Chernin's article I was first
soothed about my size and then angry at my
blindness. That I, of my own accord, have
been trying to alienate myself from a natural
and beautiful source of power is a shame. I
am not angry at men, for they are not my
enemy. Chernin stresses that the reasons for
this phenomenal physical twist are mostly unconscious and deeply psychological.
I am angry and amazed that our movement
out of the kitchen has turned on itself with
such a subtle and pervading force.
It is thrilling to realize that not only does,
the clothes rack stop at too small a size, but
that my size if far from a failure: it is a good
and natural indication of my unique power as
a woman.

TA Union proposals 'fair'
I am writing to respond to a recent accusation made against the
TA Union and to assess the accuracy of evidence used to
"substantiate" this accusation.
In a letter to The Ubyssey
published on Friday January 15,
Geov Leal Parrish states: "it is
primarily the intransigence and irresponsibility of the TA Union that
has led to the current stalemate in
contract talks."
This accusation is invalid.
As evidence of union intransigence and irresponsibility, Parrish
suggests that while other universities do not guarantee complete
financial support for graduate
students, "the TA Union is demanding precisely this kind of full support ('a living wage')."
This evidence is inaccurate.
The current wage package proposed by the TA Union can in no
way be considered a living wage.
The TA Union is not demanding
full support. Thccosts of attending
school exceed the union's wage demand.
The university estimates that, for
a first-year graduate student, the
cost of attending UBC this
academic year is $9,490. The maximum wage requested by the TA
Union, taking into account the
union's proposal for a partial tuition fee waiver, remains some
$3,300 below this cost.
Parrish's arguments concerning
wages are confusing at best. As 1
have said, he asserts that the TA
Union is demanding full financial
support. But he also suggests that:
"the difference between the wage
offers of the two sides is far less
than the difference between the
lower offer and last year's wages."
These' statements are incompatible. If the union is demanding full
support, Parrish's remarks about
the difference between wage offers
cannot be accurate. If his remarks
about the difference between wage
offers are accurate, the union cannot be demanding full support.
Parrish cannot have it both ways.
He also states that: "the only major TAU concession thus far has
been to drop their demand for a
clause supporting quality education."
This statement is not correct.
In the interest of reaching a
negotiated settlement, the TA
Union dropped entirely its proposals on quality of education and
present conditions. As well, the
union altered its union security
clause and moved significantly on
All of these concessions were
made at the same time. To meet the
concerns of the administration, the
union has further revised its wage
and security proposals. Yet Parrish
mentions only the movement on
quality of education.
If one wishes to characterize the
TA Union as intransigent or irresponsible, it is of course convenient to disregard the range of concessions made by the union.
Parrish's accusation of union intransigence rests on faulty evidence.
In the real world, the situation is
not what he suggests.
A strike vote was held because
the   administration    refused   to
negotiate further. Mediation proved ineffective be because the administration would not alter
substantivley its contract offers.
Strike action was deemed necessary
because the administration declined
to discuss the outstanding issues.
I invite Parrish to come to the TA
Union office and to examine the
series of offers made by the union
and the administration. The
evidence is inconsistent with his
charge of union rigidity and
demonstrates the intransigence of
the administration. The facts are
clear if he is interested in studying
The TA Union's proposals are

Independent AUCE
As a member of Association of
University and College Employees,
local one, I would like to respond to
Sandy Lundy's letter in The Ubyssey dated Jan. 8. Her letter raised
many issues which have not been
clarified sufficiently.
The first point was Suzan Zagar
won the election for vice president
while running on a pro-Canadian
Union of Public Employees platform. Although this is true I find it
necessary to also point out she won
by a margin of only 24 votes, certainly neither a solid victory nor a
conclusive statement by the membership to support merger with
I was the candidate running
against Suzan and my platform was
to keep AUCE intact as an independent union and within the Provincial Association. From this point
the letter immediately goes into the
issue of joining CUPE. I agree with
the statement that the membership
want a change and in 1980 the vote
was indeed two to one in favor of
affiliating to another labor organization. What the letter fails to explain is what kind of change the
membership want and what that
vote meant in terms of the entire
The third in this series asked
AUCE members how we wanted to
affiliate to the Canadian Labor
Congress (the second gave a choice
between CLC and Congress of Canadian Unions; the CLC option
won). We had a choice between
merger with an existing affiliate or
lobbying to affiliate as an independent union. The results of this vote
were: Lobby 524, Merger 269.
The results from AUCE local one
were: Lobby 235, Merger 118.
This shows the membership made
a clearcut and informed decision
against merging with any other union, including CUPE and for retaining their structure as an independent  union.
It is true we have numerous problems at both the local and provincial level. But the solution to these
problems is not in another union
but in the membership and union
leadership. Strikes for higher wages
improved working conditions and
benefits are not won by having a
large strike fund or a business agent
at hand. They are won on the basis
of militant fighting unity against the
employer and with a resolute and
determined leadership which
doesn't give in; negotiates on the
basis of principles; and defends the
interest of the workers at the bargaining table. This is what the membership must demand of its union
executive and must call its executive
to account when these principles are
not upheld.
Because of this militant fighting
unity of the AUCE workers in the
past our contract is better than most
CUPE contracts and our wages are
higher than most library and clerical
workers in other unions. These are
the facts. Every union large or small
faces problems, roadblocks on a
day to day basis. One decisive factor is how does the union leadership
deal with these problems, do they
organize their membership to fight
and do they give account to their
membership on their activities. This
factor can determine victory or defeat unless we take a stand.
It is up to us, the AUCE membership, to prepare to fight to back up
our demands and demand our leadership fight as well.

There was a preview yesterday, and

Fly By Night theatre has continually asked us to give them a

went to see their production of Now

on Seymour. It was, in few as words
as possible, an adolescent fantasy.
But they're a new group and
deserve support. Performance on
Friday, at 11:30 p.m. and Saturdays, at 12:15. Worth a look, but
hope their material and audacity
leaps to a new height soon.
