A descent into hell
by David Longridge
Engineering Physics 3
I HAD missed the last bus off cam -
pus: that much was nauseatingly
obvious as I stood in the pouring   rain
outside ofthe Student Union Building. It
was always like this: late night, last ditch
attempts to finish an assignment in Kurt
Preinsperg's love pit, the most comfortable (and intimate) place in the SUB to
try-to-do-homework-and-end-up-falling-
asleep-until-l:30 am-only-to-be-woken-up-
by-a-burly-ex-military-type-with -bad-
breath: the Proctor. He has glared at me
malevolently as I packed up my books,
and watched me as I left the "premises",
as he referred to them. I wasn't a big fan
of burly ex-military types, especially the
ones with bad breath.
I stood, dripping, in the darkness and
gloom that is UBC at night. I considered
my options: a walk home through the
Endowment Lands, a taxi, or sleep here
on campus. The first was definitely out, as
was the second, since I had no desire to
spend the rest of time known to my
friends only by the "Missing" posters that
would inevitably spring up after a late
night walk through the Endowment
Lands; nor did I have any money, so all
that was left was a night with the Alma
Mater as my host. Shit.
I began to walk back to trie SUB,
hoping that the Proctor, seeing my
pathetic bedraggled condition, might have
some mercy and let me sleep in Kurt's
nest of l'amore.   Unlikely, but worth a try.
After I had rounded the large grassy hill
at the foot ofthe SUB, I was nearly
blinded by the brightly coloured lights
from four police cars and an ambulance
parked at the foot ofthe building. The
Proctor was speaking animatedly to two
policemen, who were taking notes. I
approached, and tried to listen as quietly
as I could.
"He was dead! I went up to this kid,
who was just sitting, all by himself, and
shook him to wake him up. We're not
supposed to have people staying in there
overnight, you see, and I was doing my
job. I didn't..."
"We understand, Mr. Tologist. Please
continue."
Proctor Tologist took a deep breath,
and continued.
"Well, I just gave this kid a nudge,
and he falls off the couch. I thought he
was drunk at first, so I bent down to help
him up, and that's when I noticed he
wasn't breathing. He was dead! Weird,
eh?"
"Very", concluded both of the policemen simultaneously.
I decided this would be a good time to
offer my humble services. In as meek and
helpful tone I could
manage, I explained
that I had been in
the building as
well, and had
seen nor heard
nothing
amiss. To
my dismay, no one paid me the least bit of
attention. It was as if I wasn't there. I
tried again, and still no reaction. Disgusted, I left, just as the two medics were
bringing out the corpse. I wandered over
to the ambulance, and said "Good
Evening" to the pair of them: perhaps not
too appropriate, but friendly nevertheless.
They too ignored me, and were just in the
process of putting the cadaver in the
ambulance when another cop approached
them. He ignored me, as seemed to be the
trend at that moment, and asked one of
the medics if the unfortunate had died
painfully, or violently.
"Nah, it's weird. The guy has a smile
on his face. Look." And with those words,
the medic pulled back the sheet covering
the face ofthe deceased, and I saw, quite
clearly, distinctly, and without any doubt,
my own face, grinning toothily back at
me, dead.
I tried to grab the medic, but my
hands could find no purchase on his
uniform. I shouted to the cops, Proctor
Tologist, and a couple of round Traffic and
Security men who were eating doughnuts
off to the side, wondering aloud if they
could ever legally give an ambulance a
ticket for parking in a fire zone ("After all,
Dick, it's not a fire truck, and there's no
fire here"), but no one paid me any
attention. It was obvious. I was dead: I
had died in the midst of an applied stress
and strain problem, and the sick thing
was, I had died smiling.
My mind was spinning...what should
I do, now that I was dead? Never having
been dead before, I was at a loss as to
what I should spend my time doing. I
decided to go for a walk. The night air
would make me feel better, I was sure.
I began to walk, not thinking much
about anything, (as dead people are prone
to do) when I saw, coming towards me,
the bright headlight ofa motorcycle. It
was approaching slowly, as if the rider
was looking for someone or something. As
it drew nearer, I realized that it wasn't a
motorcycle, but a car with only one
headlight. A big car, too...the kind that
died with the seventies. As it drew
opposite to me, it screeched to a halt. As if
the driver had seen a gho...
The car was painted black, mat black.
It was ugly. An Oldsmobile Delta 88,
vintage 1973: a misunderstood classic, I
had always felt. But what would its driver
want with a dead person...
The window rolled down, screeching
lopsidedly. It was dark inside, and I
couldn't see the face ofthe driver. But a
pleasant, grant-grabbing, politically
motivated voice purred out from the
inside, "Hi there. Are you looking for
some place? Nowhere to go? Nobody to
talk to? Feeling kind of...dead? And
with that, the speaker burst into fits
of cacophonous laughter. Small
flecks of saliva flew from the oper
window, striking my par/s anr)
the sidewalk. They hissea g
and steamed as they
struck the
sidewalk, as if the small gobs of spit
were acidic...I looked at my pants.
They were steaming in spots, and
stung to the touch.
"Get in, or I'll really spit on
you, and then you'll be
sorry."
I didn't argue—I
don't really know why.
My mother al ways
told me never to get
into strangers' cars, but
if I'm already dead,
what could possibly
happen?
I walked to the
other side ofthe car
and got in. It stank in
there, plain and
simple, no doubt
about it. It smelled
like....like it occasionally does by Buchanan
D block just outside of
the south door in
November, after it
has rained. I coughed.
"Nice smell, eh?"
the driver purred.
"Who are you?
What's happening to
me?" I asked,
desperately.
Without warning, the driver turned
the dome light of the car
on, and I gaped in utter
horror at the sight that
confronted me. I was
speechless. Indeed, gentle
reader, it is difficult for
the imagination to even
conceive the depth ofthe
bottomless pit of sheer
unutterable terror into
which I had suddenly
been pitched. For I was
staring into the leering,
grinning face of Dave
Strangway, president of
the University of
British Columbia. He
answered me.
"You're dead,
son. You're in hell,
and I'm the head
man here. Big

More women entering engineering
by Nicole Sadinsky
The number of women enrolling in engineering programs is at
an all-time high at UBC due to an
increase in awareness.
Women used to be nonexistent in engineering at UBC until
the mid-seventies. Dr. Sidney
Mindess, Director of the Engineering Core Program and professor for twenty-one years, remembers the first few women students he had and has noticed a
marked change in numbers.
"You notice them (the female
students) less and less; now they
are just a part ofthe class, part of
a group of people who perform
academically like the rest of them,"
Mindess said.
The engineering faculty is
making special efforts to attract
young students to UBC. For the
past three years, the faculty has
been holding one day conferences
for high school science teachers of
the Lower Mainland to promote
UBC engineering programs.
This past spring, the faculty
held a special one day conference
for the teachers and female high
school students interested in applied sciences. The conference
covered career opportunities
available to women in UBC engineering programs.
"The conferences were very
successful based on positive comments from teachers and female
students and we'll definitely be
doing them again," Mindess said.
In the past there have been
very few financial awards offered,
particularly for women. However,
this too is changing. The engineering faculty has put money
aside for two new major entrance
scholarships to be started next
year.
Each scholarship will award
$2500 per year for four years with
specific grade requirements. One
scholarship will be awarded generally while the other will be
awarded to a female student.
In 1990, female enrolment in
UBC engineering programs is at
its highest ever. As of October 1st,
there were 208 women registered
in engineering undergraduate
programs. The proportion of
women enrolled in first year engineering has doubled over the last
two years and is now at 15 per
cent.
The numbers are up in the
faculty's graduate programs as
well. This is most evident in the
Environmental Engineering Program offered through the department of Civil Engineering. This
year there were 13 new students
admitted, 6 of whom were female.
Civil Engineering professor
and head of the Environmental
Group Donald Mavinik sees a
drastic change.
"We usually have one or two
women enter the program each
year, but we've never seen these
numbers before," Mavinik said.
Other Canadian schools are
also showing increases in female
enrolment. At the University of
Montreal's Ecole Polytechnique,
23% of engineering applicants
were women. This was despite the
murders of 14 female engineering
students at the school last December.
Fourth year engineering student Michelle Blake said "when
you are actually doing your studies you don't run across any sexism. It's almost nonexistent."
Fourth year engineering
student Gordon Bird has high
praises for women in his classes.
When speaking of one in particular he said, "She was very dynamic and outgoing; a born
leader. Her organization was excellent and ultimately she kept
our lab group together."
William Oldham, head of
Civil Engineering said the addition of more women into the faculty is a bonus. Hesaid the trend
will alter perspectives within the
profession—a change Oldham
feels is crucial to engineering.
"I expect to see the trend
increasing," Oldhan said.
"There's no way of reversing it
now. The whole image of engineering is changing and I think
the change is essential."
UBC professor building a better traffic light
by Willem Maas
Fifty per cent of traffic accidents happen at intersections and
UBC psychology professor Ron
Lakowski wonders if some of them
occur because some people cannot
see the traffic lights.
Lakowski is studying the
problems facing colour deficient
people as part ofa project to design
better traffic signals. The project
is commissioned by the provincial
Ministry of Transportation and
Highways.
"Colourblind  drivers  often
have problems seeing traffic signals," Lukowski said.
After identifying the probleins
with the current lights, Lakowski
will make recommendations for
changes and will then work together with UBC's Civil Engineering and Opthalmology departments to develop new signals.
Colourblindness is predominantly a male trait with a full nine
per cent of men being born
colourblind. Although far fewer
women are born with the defi
ciency, 15 per cent of men and
women will acquire the trait as
they age.
Lakowski said one problem he
is facing in designing a "perfect"
traffic light is that there are different types of visual deficiency. He is
asking for volunteers who know
they are colour deficient as well as
people between the ages of 30 and
70 with no colour vision problems.
The volunteers will be asked
to fill out a questionnaire and spend
two hours undergoing tests in the
psychology department's Visual
Laboratory.
Most colourblind people have
problems seeing either red, green,
or blue, and often confuse colours.
Lakowski said traffic lights
have historically been designed for
things like wind resistance and
distance from the ground, not for
how well people can see them under different conditions.
He also said decisions about
what colour the lights should be
were often made without consult
ing a vision expert. The new dark
brown colour ofthe border around
the lights at the intersection of
University Boulevard and
Wesbrook Mall are an example,
since many people now find the
lights harder to see, he said.
According to Lakowski,  the
research done so far has been under lab conditions and has not
taken into account such factors as
the position of the sun, the presence of fog, snow, or rain, and possible dirt on the lights.
Ah, beauteous Autumn. The air is cool, and
the leaves rot and turn to mush under foot.

NDP critic fears
education cuts
by Rick Hiebert
VANCOUVER (CUP) —
British Columbia's NDP opposition finance critic predicts
the Social Credit government
wilfciit the provincial post-
secondary education budget
for next year by at least two
or three per cent.
"If you think that you
have to slash the budget and
cut costs, if you think deep
cuts are necessary, you have
to touch (health, education
and advanced education), as
they make up 60 per cent of
B.C.'s budget," Glen Clark
said.
Clark was reacting to
comments made last week by
the province's finance minister. Mel Couvelier said education may have to face immediate budget cuts, as well
as a five per cent cut next
year.
"I don't think the post-
secondary education system
will be immune (from cuts).
The only item that would be
immune would be the new
Prince George university,"
Clark said. "You might see
some big tuition increases, as
that's the way this government has been going lately."
He said a budget freeze—
which will mean a cut when
inflation is taken into account—was possibly the least
the government would do.
Couvelier told reporters
last week that because provincial tax revenue is falling,
it may be necessary to ask all
ministries except health, to
trim their budgets further.
Last summer, those ministries cut one and a half per
cent off their budgets.
"I'm under considerable
pressure here," Couvelier
said. "It may be that we decide that we have to go back
to (the ministries) and ask
them to find a little bit more
than that (to cut)."
B.C.'s government ministers have been unclear in
recent weeks on whether
education and advanced
education will have their
budgets cut by five per cent.
Couvelier said the education ministries will "possibly" be asked to cut back.
Advanced Education minister Bruce Strachan is adamant that those ministries
will be exempt from the proposed cuts while Education
Minister Tony Brummet has
asked his ministry to set priorities in case the cuts occur.
Clark said the government may be publicly confused about its budget plans
because of its need to plan a
strategy for the next election.
The Socreds, he said, may
not have made up their minds
whether to be advocates of
government cutbacks or to
spend their way out of the
threatened recession.

"Bagel man" for mayor
by E. Griffith
The Wreck Beach bagel guy is
running for mayor.
Guy Wera gave up his job of
"bagel and caesar salad-man" and
decided to run in the Vancouver
municipal elections because
"there's a strong hunger in
the city for a mayor who will
do something."
"I am competing with a
capitalist, a socialist and a
communist. I am an independent with the desire to represent everyone," Wera said.
Wera would like to see
the city deal more with accessible housing, ecological
transportation and the plight
of Vancouver's youth.
He said the city should
concentrate more on the
shortage of "housing for
families, not for the tarts or
single people.
"Regulations should be
more lax on secondary suites
until there is three per cent
availability," Wera said. "The city
should be more preoccupied with
creating new housing instead of
hassling people who are already
there."
Although he does not promise
a moratorium on demolition of
houses in the West Side, Wera
said "people [evicted from] houses
should have their movingexpenses
pai d by the owner and they should
be given six months notice to find
another place to live.
"There's alack of housing and
squatters are there because of political inaction by the (Non-Partisan Association) majority on
council." As mayor, Wera promises
to "build co-op housing now."
Wera promises bicycle paths
on the streets, priority given to
bicycles in the right lane, and for
bikes to be allowed on buses and on
Guy Wera
E. Griffith photo
the Skytrain. He also promised to
improve bus service.
A graduate of McGill University and a non-paying UBC student (he sat in on classes but was
not enrolled), Wera is interested in
the needs of students.
"I want all libraries, including
university libraries, plugged in together to one big network so all
people can have access to all libraries in the country," he said.
He was surprised that the UBC
Endowment Lands are not part of
Vancouver. "Students living on
campus are living in Vancouver,"
he said. "They should be able to
vote in municipal elections."
In addition to UBC students,
Wera said high school students
should also be eligible to vote at a
municipal level.
"Young people 15 or over who
are interested in what's happening around them should be
able to express their political
needs," Wera said. "I would
make it possible for them to be
involved in municipal politics—to vote, not to run as Alderman. They should be 19 to
run, but should be able to vote
at 15. Fifteen-year-olds know
the issuesbetter than the older
folks."
Wera is running his low-budget campaign on volunteer
work. His first public appeal
for donations will be a
"fundraising jam session" under the Burrard Bridge Sunday at noon, "where all musicians come together and make
music."
"I want to promote the arts,"
he said. "I want to promote theatre, dance and music in this city
so it's happening, so that the youth
will have something to turn to, to
get in vol ved in so they won't be out
on the street beating each other up
out of boredom and frustration at
the society."
As for qualifications Wera
said, "you need to be 19. I am 40. I
am doubly qualified."
When asked if his job as mayor
might take precedence over his
summer job, he said he would give
up bagel hocking. "I'm going to be
busy, no?"
Should campus go green?
by Martin Chester
Students will finally be solicited for their opinions about recycling programs on campus.
The 5 Rs (rethink, reduce,
reuse, refuse and finally recycle)
group of the Student Environment Centre is currently organizing a survey to be distributed
on Monday, November 5 and for
the following week.
Mary-Jean O'Donnell, the 5
Rs coordinator at the SEC, said
the survey was created "to determine the amount of interest in
campus wide recycling and to get
the attention of the administration to let them know that their
attempts at recycling aren't good
enough."
"(The information) will serve
as a guide of what student opin
ion is about recycling," O'Donnell
said.
"Recycling programs must be
people friendly," she said. "Its no
use having a program if no one
uses it."
O'Donnell said the administration needs to be pushed on recycling. "We want campus wide recycling funded by the administration
regardless of whether it is cost recoverable," she said.
Neither UBC president David
Strangway nor his staff were
available for comment on Monday.
O'Donnell said the people from
both the SEC and the Surplus
Equipment Recycling Facility
(SERF), who first proposed the
survey, feel a survey holds greater
pull on the administration than
does a petition.
"The survey is stronger than
a petition because these days everyone signs petitions," she said.
However, the SEC plans to distribute a petition as well. "Because we're not getting such a
good response from SERF, we're
going to put together a petition
ourselves."
"One of the major problems
we are having with SERF is alack
of communication," O'Donnell
said.
No spokesperson from SERF
was available on Monday.
The survey and petition will
also raise awareness of recycling
on campus.
"Basic awareness still hasn't
gotten through," O'Donnell said.
"Most people don't even know what
SERF is."

Puck 'Birds mauled by Bears
by Michael Booth
The UBC Thunderbird hockey
team saw its season record drop to
an even 2-2 after they were beaten
4-2 and 7-5 by the University of
Alberta.
The Golden Bearshave proved
to be the T-Birds greatest nemesis
in recent years and this season
does not appear to be any different. UBC outshot Alberta 31-24 in
the first game and were leading 4-
2 in the second before eventually
succumbing to the relentless
Golden Bear attack.
"It was a matter of defensive
lapses, mental errors," said UBC
coach Terry O'Malley. "Alberta
continually comes at you so you
have to be prepared to deal with
their drive."
In the first game, Alberta led
3-2 heading into the final frame
before scoring an empty net goal to
salt away the win. Forwards Mike
Kennedy and Dave Cannon scored
for UBC.
On Saturday, the T-Birds got
off to a quick start and built up a
two goal lead before Alberta managed a comeback. The score was
tied at four after two periods but
Alberta outscored UBC 3-1 in the
final frame to complete the weekend sweep.
Kennedy scored two more
goals and added an assist while
centre Scott Fearns scored two
goals and forward Charles Cooper
scored one to round out the T-
Birds scoring. All five UBC goals
on Saturday were scored on the
powerplay.
Ironically, it was a lapse by
the powerplay unit which provided
the spark for Alberta.

31st T-Cup Thursday
Mclnnis Field will come alive
this Thursday at 12:30 as the T-
Cup Powderpuff Football Classic
pits the Nursing Undergraduate
Society against the Family and
Nutritional Science faculty. The
game is a campus tradition and
has been played annually since
the mid-1950's.
Along with the on-fieldaction,
the 1990 Miss/Mr T-Cup will make
an appearance. The cheerleading
will be provided by the Engineers
supporting the Nurses and For
estry cheering for the F.N.S.
The Nurses are hoping to
avenge loses in the two most recent T-Cups but have allowed
women from the forestry faculty to
play on the F.N.S. team, a measure
made to ensure there are enough
players to play the game.
There is no admission charge
and all are welcome to witness this
annual fall spectacle. A collection
will be taken with proceeds going
to the Muscular Dystrophy Association of British Columbia.
"We had a 4-2 lead in the second period when they scored
shorthanded," O'Malley said. "That
seemed to turn the tide for them."
Next up for the T-Birds is a
pair of games this weekend against
the Uni versity of Manitoba Bisons.
In addition to the ugliest uniforms
in hockey, the Bisons will bring
some impressive talent with them
from Winnipeg.
"They are an aggressive team
with a fair amount of experience,"
O'Malley said. "They have a mobile defence and they like to hit.
"Their goaltender was the top
goalie in the league two years ago
but had an off season last year."
Both games will be played at
the Winter Sports Centre with
Saturday's game starting at 7:30
pm and Sunday's contest facing off
at 1:00 pm.
'Birds earn
wildcard bid
The UBC women's field
hockey team has been awarded a

finished second to the top ranked
University of Victoria Vikettes
this season in Canada West play
and were ranked fourth nationally. The berth marks the fifth
straight year the team has earned
a wildcard berth to the national
tournament. The tournament will
be played this weekend in

Women's volleyball set to begin
by Gwen Parker
Following a period of pre-season consolidation, the UBC
women's volleyball team is ready
for battle in the Canada West conference. The
'Birds are capable
ofa first place finish in the West,
and a high placing at the CIAU
championships.
With nine returning players
who have been
exposed to the
CIAU national
competition, UBC
has several experienced player s on
the team hoping
to improve upon
tition. There are several players in
blue and gold to watch out for this
season.
Team  co-captain  and   1990
Canada West first team all-star
Sarah
Cepeliauskas is a
6'1" middle
blocker. She
calmly terrorizes
the opponents
with her sharp
attacking angles,
stuff blocks, and
tough serves.
Cepeliauskas is
no stranger to the
national    team
Sarah
last year's fifth place finish in the
nationals.
With strong teams across the
board, the Canada West conference should not be taken lightly.
The Universities of Victoria,
Calgary, and Saskatchewan will
provide excellent competition for
the "Birds.
Nationally, the University of
Manitoba will definitely be the
team to beat. The Bisons have two
national 'B' team members, the
1990 CIAU gold medal, and plenty
of discipline.
However, UBC will be well
represented at all levels of compe-
program.
The team's other
co-captain, Sarah
Dunlop Dunlop,    is    a
fourth year veteran who was a
Canada West
second team all-
star last year. At
5'11", Dunlop is
an effective side-
out hitter, a
blocking force,
and possesses a
legendary serve.
1990 all-Canadian Sonya
Wachowski is a
fourth year right
side player. She
has started since
year   one,   and Kyi
combines an excellent vertical
jump, a powerful arm, and a quick
left hand to produce stunning offensive results. Also watch for some
big stuff blocks and gutsy defense
from Wachowski. The National 'B'
team has also occupied Wachowski
for two summers.
Third year player Kyla Lee
starts for the 'Birds in the setting
position. With an MVP from the
University of Puget Sound tournament credited to her name already
this year, Lee has become a forceful, respected co-ordinator of the
team's offence.
Sheilagh Gillespie plays volleyball    like    the   fifth   year
powerhitter she is. With prior experience garnered from play at
Cariboo College and the College of
the   Sequoias   in   California,
Gillespie maintainsher composure
on the court. She
has an effective
top  spin attack
which she
sprinkles   with
smart shots.
1990 Canada
West rookie ofthe
year Jenny Rauh
is back with an
extremely powerful serve and attack. With the experience she
gained on the
a Lee court last year,
Kyla Lee (10) and Sarah Cepeliauskas (12)
prepare to block a shot by Sarah Dunlop (1)
during intra-squad play last weekend.
STEVE CHAN PHOTO
Rauh should be a big contributor
to the team.
Bonnie Mclean is a
powerhitter we'll be hearing more
about this year. Spending last
summer with the National 'B' team
has drawn out some exciting new
talent. At 5'11", she intimidates
with a good jump, fast wrist, and
hang time.
Dori Manley is shaping up to
be a strong, versatile second year
player who will powerhit this year.
Pat Voracek and Mary Stothard
will add depth in the middle blocking department.
First year additions Erin
Wood, a right side player, and
Michelle Lachmann, the team's
second setter, round out this year's
strong squad.
The *Birds begin Canada West
league play at War Memorial Gym
this weekend against the University of Calgary at 8:00 on Friday
and Saturday nights.
'Birds stumble at York
by Gwen Parker
The UBC women's volleyball
team got a quick update on the
volleyball talent across the country
when they finished fourth at the
Tait Mckenzie invitational tournament in Toronto last weekend.
A narrow first place finish in
pool play sent UBC in the University of Manitoba's direction, and
the Bisons made short work of the
T-Birdsinthe semi-final 9-15,15-3,
12-15, 1-15. Host York University
had the satisfaction of keeping the
bronze medal at home when they
downed UBC 11-15, 15-3, 15-13,
12-15, 11-15 in the fight for third
place.
Sonya Wachowski, right side
player for the T-Birds, was named
to the tournament's all-star team.
Wachowski dominated the stat
sheets with 47 kills, 23 stuff blocks,
and 31 digs.
Middle blocker Sarah Dunlop
played aggressively throughout the
tournament, and finished with 33
kills, 17 stuff blocks, and 10 service
aces.
Nowthatthe T-Birds have been
exposed to some of the best teams in
the country, the players can approach the upcoming season with
some specific goals in mind.
The University of Manitoba, in
particular, will occupy much ofthe
team's thoughts. The defending
CIAU champion Bisons defeated
the University of Regina in the
tournament finals and began another season with the taste of gold
in their mouths.
T-Birds third in Thunderball
by Carol Hui
An intense level of play carried
the University of Manitoba Bisons
to victory at the Thunderball IV
volleyball tournament at War Memorial Gym over the weekend.
The Bisons capitalized on mistakes by the University of California at Santa Barbara to take the
gold medal match in three straight
games.
A strong overall performance
by tournament MVP Dale
Iwanoczko, thundering kills by all-
star Steve Welch, and a relatively
mistake-free performance by the
entire team allowed Bisons to overpower the visitors from California.
Santa Barbara, meanwhile, misse d
several key serves and failed to
convert good plays into points.
The UBCThunderbirds, touted
as strong contenders, finished a
disappointingthird. However, head
coach Dale Ohman remains optimistic and confident in the abilities
ofhis team.
"We were disappointed about
our loss to Santa Barbara," Ohman
said. "That match was an awakening to the highest level of play. We
realized that we had to crank up
our level of intensity. In our next
match, we performed well and dismantled Winnipeg. In winning the
bronze medal, we destroyed
McMaster."
Though UBC lost to Manitoba
in straight games, Ohman is not
worried about the prospect of being
dominated in regular season play.
"In reality, the teams are very
even. Manitoba established the
standard to beat. They gave us a
dose of what it takes to win. But we
are equal in terms of our abilities.
They played a major tournament
last week, so they carried their in
tensity over this weekend," Ohman
said.
Another positive sign displayed
in the Thunderball Tournament
was the depth ofthe T-Bird team.
Many players came off the bench to
replace starters without lowering
the level of play.
The tournament represented
top teams from both Canadian and
American teams. Unlike some other
varsity sports, volleyball is an area
where Canadians compete on an
even level with the US.
"In the last five years, the top
NCAA and CIAU teams are playing at the same level. In fact, ifyou
look at the top ten NCAA and CIAU
teams, the Canadians have a bit of
an edge. The recognition of Canadian volleyball is evident in that
the top US teams from California
are coming up every year for close
battles," Ohman said.

THE UBYSSEY/7 Men finish first again
For the second year in a row,
the UBC men's soccer team has
clinched first place in the Canada
West conference. The T-Birds
downed Alberta 2-1 and
Saskatchewan 1-0 to wrap up the
regular season title.
In Alberta, Rob Reed scored
two second half goals to lead the
UBC comeback against the Golden
Bears. The next day in Saskatoon,
veteran defender Gregor Young
scored the only goal i n a win d swept
contest.
The T-Birds next game is this
weekend in Victoria against the
UVic Vikings. The team then returns home to host a national semifinal match against a team from
central Canada.
UBC Women Clinch First
The UBC women's soccer team
clinched first place in the Canada
West conference over the weekend
as they wound up their regular
season schedule with a 1-1 draw in
Alberta and a 3-1 win over the
University of Saskatchewan.
With Alberta leading 1-0,
midfielder Nancy Ferguson tied
the game in the 73rd minute as the
T-Birds wrapped up top spot.
Ferguson added another goal the
next day in Saskatoon with other
T-Bird markers coming from Andrea Neil and Kirsten Kotval.
The T-Birds next game comes
November 11 when they host the
national semi-final against a team
from central Canada.
Mitch Ring to return?
The UBC women's soccer team
received some good news when it
was learned that two time all-Canadian Mitch Ring may be back in
time for the play-offs. Ring tore
ligaments in her ankle in the second game ofthe season. Until then,
she had been on a goal-a-game
pace through exhibition and the
first two games ofthe year.
Ring may be back in the lineup as early as the semi-final game
on November 11 but is more likely
she will not play unless the team
makes it to the national championship game.

'Birds, Dinos
set to clash
by Michael Booth
The UBC Thunderbird football team's season will all come
down to one single game.
When the T-Birds square off
with the University of Calgary
Dinosaurs this Saturday, the second and final playoff spot in the
Canada West conference will be
on the line. UBC improved their
record to 4-2-1 by downing the
University of Mani toba Bisons 18-
16 in Winnipeg Saturday.
Manitoba led 3-1 after the
first quarter but UBC erupted for
17 points in the second frame.
UBC's running game did most of
the work, piling up 229 yards and
one touchdown.
Running back Jim Stewart
increased his Canada West rushing lead through his second
straight game with over 100 yards.
The highlight ofthe game was an
80 yard touch down run by Stewart
in the second quarter.
Manitoba started to come
back in the third quarter when
UBC gave up a punt single and
conceded a safety rather than punt
into a 30 mile-per-hour wind. The

Bisons closed the score to 18-16
but UBC defensive back Roger
Hennigblocked a last minute field
goal attempt from 49 yards out. It
was the third blocked field goal of
the game for UBC following earlier efforts by linebacker Troy Van
Vliet and defensive back Travis
Wolsey.
The win sets up a sort of deja
vu situation for the T-Birds. Last
year, UBC defeated Calgary at
Thunderbird Stadium on the last
weekend of the season. The win
gave the T-Birds second place in
the conference and they advanced
to the Canada West final in
Saskatoon against the University
of Saskatchewan.
If UBC defeats Calgary at
home this weekend, they will play
Saskatchewan in the Canada West
final in Saskatoon.
An added attraction to this
weekend's contest is the head to
head confrontation between the
conference's two best running
backs. Calgary boasts the second
leading rusher in the form of J.P.
Izquierdo while Stewart was a finalist for the Hee Crighton trophy
as the top football player in
Canada last year.
Kickoff is at 1:00pm Saturday at Thunderbird Stadium.

Basketball blasts off
by Mark Nielsen
It may be only the basketball
pre-season that is getting underway at UBC this weekend, but it
is coming on with the impact ofa
slam dunk.
The Thunderbirds will meet
Simon Fraser University at War
Memorial Gym this Thursday
night for a pair of annual clashes
between cross-town rival men's
(game time 7:30 pm) and women's
(5:30 pm) teams.
The women's game will also
be the opener for the four-day long
West Coast Invitational Tournament, probably one ofthe toughest women's tournaments in the
country this year.
As if that were not enough,
the men will take on the Concordia
University Stingers, last year's
national champions, on Sunday
at War Memorial (2 pm).
Heading into the busy sched
ule, the coaches of both teams
engaged in what could be called a
bit of pre-season hoop-la and urged
fans to come out and support the
Thunderbirds.
Men's coach Bruce Ennsbilled
the SFU contest, known as the
Buchanan Classic, as a chance to
even the score in the annual triple
crown of sports rivalry between
the two schools. Following a loss
to SFU in the Shrum Bowl football game, UBC settled for a tie in
soccer's Diachem Bowl.
As far as the women's coach
Misty Thomas is concerned, SFU
will be a team the Thunderbirds
want to beat, but she said they
will also be looking to overcome a
few other opponents during the
tournament for the purposes of
national rankings.
Leading that list of five entrants will be Laurentian University, last year's women's national
champion, as well as the University of Manitoba, which Thomas
includes along with her own team
as an up and coming national
contender.
She added that, considering
how tough the Canada West conference will be this year, the calibre of teams at the tournament—
which alsoincludes the University
of Victoria—will be a taste of what
to expect in *he upcoming season.
"Most of the teams in the
Canada West are top ten, so they
(UBC) better get used to it now,"
she said.
The schedule is as follows:
Friday, November 2—3 p.m. UVic
vs. Laurentian; 5 p.m. SFU vs.
Manitoba. Saturday, November
3—3 p.m. Manitoba vs. UVic; 5
p.m. UBC vs. Laurentian. Sunday, November 4—3 p.m.
Manitoba vs. UBC; 5 p.m. SFU vs.
Laurentian.
X-country women run
away with Canda West title
by John Newlands
In a rather unique attempt to
broaden the field at this year's
Canada West Cross-Country
Championships, the race was run
simultaneously with the BC Cross-
Country Championships. The
races were run on a 2000-metre
course at UBC's Osborne Fields.
As a result, in addition to the
approximately 35 university athletes in each race, there were also
numerous top club racers from
across BC. Their presence kept
the race interesting and tightly
packed.
The big surprise this weekend came from the UBC women's
team which captured the Canada
West championship by upsetting
the perennial champions from the
University of Victoria. UBC placed
first with 31 points followed by
UVic at 33 points while the University of Manitoba was a distant
third with 76 points.
Running with home field advantage on afi ve kilometer course,
UBC's Meghan O'Brien ran the
race of her life to win in a time of
17 minutes, 54 seconds. O'Brien
ran a very aggressive race right
from the start, sparking UBC to
its stunning upset of UVic. Placing second from UVic was Anna
Gunaskera (17:58), while third
was captured by her UVic teammate Tania Jones (18:15). Rounding out the top 10 from UBC were
Lori Durward in fourth (18:33),
Karen Reader fifth (18:37), and
Fredrique Schmidt in ninth
(19:14).
The win in the Canada West
meet means the women have
earned a berth at the nationals in
Ottawa on November 10.
UBC coach Marek Jedreyjek
said the women demonstrated
"great patience and excellent team
tactics to narrowly defeat UVic."
All this came from a team made
up primarily of rookies and second year students.
The UBC men's team were
not being nearly as fortunate as
they were unsuccessful in their
bid for a wild-card berth to the
nationals. The honour will probably go to the UVic team that
finished second with 38 points,
one point back ofthe race winners
from the University of Manitoba.
UBC placed a distant third with
69 points.
The men's race was won
handily by Manitoba's Darren
Klassen in 30:55. Second place
was taken by Paddy McClusky
(31:30) from UVic, while third
went to UVic's Jim Perry (31:33).
Placing in the top ten from UBC
was Al Klassen in fourth (31:40),
Rob Lonergan sixth (32:27), and
Doug Consiglio seventh (32:59).

THE UBYSSEY/9 Trick or treat
It was a long and difficult process that took hours of
searching, let alone brainstorming, before we got everything together. The Ubyssey, however, will be ready for
the trick or treaters on Halloween night.
The task was made harder by the fact that as the
vilest rag west of Blanca, we get our own special brand of
trick or treaters. While most households get their quota
of ghosts, goblins and teenage mutant ninja turtles, The
Ubyssey is inundated with politicians, personalities and
just your basic putzes from the horror stories ofthe past
year. What to do when Bill Vander Zalm comes to our
door and holds out his bag? Believe it or not, we came up
with something for everyone. To:
Brian Mulroney—The honour of being the Governor
ofthe State of Canada.
Bill Vander Zalm—An exclusive interview, at 3 am,
by Vaughn Palmer, ex-Ubyssey hack.
Bruce Strachan (BC minister of Advanced Education)—A guided tour through a university outside of your
Prince George riding.
Gordon Campbell—Something to do.
"Diamond" Dave Strangway—A conscience and a
case of Kraft Dinner for your next fund raising event. If
we can eat it, they can eat it. Is it at all surprising that 75
per cent ofthe Ghost Story entries portrayed Diamond
Dave as the Prince of Darkness (or a variation of the
theme)?
Kurt Preinsperg—A complimentary therapy session
with Dr. Ruth. Perhaps they can swap notes.
The AMS Students Council—Nothing, that's what
they do for students.
The Arts and Engineering Undergraduate Society—
complimentary tickets to the BC Place demolition derby,
to see how the pros do it.
Cariboo House—Inflate-A-Mates, lots of them.
Gail Wilson (coach of UBC women's field hockey
team)—Enrollment in the Dale Carnegie course: "How to
win friends and influence people."
George Bush (Decent golf player)—A box seaton the
front lines in scenic downtown Baghdad.
Surete de Quebec—A large helping of their own
particular style of "peacekeeping."
Ministers of Native Affairs past, present and future—Slow, painful torture of their collective conscience.
The students of UBC—a lesson in democracy: you
have to participate.
And to our favorite "journalist," Doug Collins—A
lifetime subscription to The Ubyssey, specially delivered
by Fred the Autonomous Brick. Maybe we can give you
some pointers on what has happened since the time
humanity swung from trees.

Letters
Promote equal
opportunity
sexism
When I read "A day in
the life..." by John Lipscomb
in the Sept. 18 issue of The
Ubyssey I was tempted to
write a reply to set the record
straight and clear up a few
misleading statements. I resisted because his comments
didn't worry me and I didn't
wan t to joi n the ranks of those
complaining about AMS execs. However, now that I have
read Sabrina Hong's comments of Oct. 10 I feel compelled to respond.
The letters referred to the
EUS's $20,000 debt and
John's refusal to allow the
purchase of our Godiva
patches. Firstly, the EUS
does not have a $20,000 debt.
Nearly $11,000 of that was a
debt which John attributed
to us but actually belonged to
an AMS club. My statement
is supported by a Sept. 19
motion of AMS Council. The
other $9,000 represented the
value of miscellaneous inventory which is destined for
resale (money borrowed to
buy stock—surely it isn't a
crime to get a few of those foul
red jackets during the summer so that we can sell them
in September). That leaves
(let me get out my calculator)
an account balance of $0 at
the time of his letter. Secondly, the decision to allow
purchase of Godiva patches
should be based on business
pri nci pies an d not on personal
ethics. But above all this,
what right does the Hate
Hurts Committee have to
control the actions of an undergraduate society? This is
not to say that the Hate Hurts
Committee isn't worthwhile,
only that it isn't the
committee's place to be UBC's
moral guardian. If it hadn't
been mentioned that the
patches to be ordered showed
our vile Lady Godiva symbol
it is likely that John would
have approved the purchase
on business grounds. (Note:
Lord Godiva patches are also

available—the EUS promotes
equal opportunity sexism.)
The other matter of contention was the removal of
SUB furniture by engineering students and that it was
returned damaged. I was in
the AMS offices while the
furniture was on its way out
the door. When I came around
the corner I encountered a
few friendly, laughing, AMS-
type faces. My first reaction
was "OK, so what did they do
this time?" (My, how people
like to make a president's life
difficult.) After I had been
told, I mentioned that the
furniture would be returned
promptly (the Cheeze Factory
isn't in need of another sofa).
John had obviously not heard
my reassurance and took the
matter quite seriously. The
furniture was returned UNDAMAGED, with the exception ofa few legs unscrewed
by a drunken engineering
frosh. The legs were left and
later found somewhere upstairs in SUB.
Sabrina, I wouldn't worry
about the AMS paying someone to screw the legs back on
a few chairs and a sofa. And
John, lighten up!

Bendl
truly behind
Enough is not nearly
enough!
Chris Bendl describes
UBC daycares as "money pits"
and thinks we should throw
our "money and blind support" into a new recreation
facility instead (The Ubyssey,
October 10, 1990).
If the percentage of students likely to make use of
facilities and services is the
best criterion for allocating
funds, perhaps we should put
a stop to the "blind support"
UBC gives handicapped students. Better still, since university students represent
such a tiny proportion ofthe
general population, let's en
courage the federal and provincial governments to apply
Bendl's logic and end their
"blind support" of post-secondary education.
Only the truly blind
would trade the welfare of
children for a place to play a
rousing game of volleyball.

UBC recycling
efforts
are lacking
I would like to voice a
serious concern about the
state of environmental
awareness on UBC campus,
especially the lack of recycling boxes in and around the
SUB building.
I would have thought,
that as a leading university
in this province, UBC would
take a leading prole in the
three "R's" of "reduce, reuse
and recycle." Yet it appears
that the university is totally
apathetic on the subject.
Where in SUB can I put
my recyclable cans and
bottles? And where, please
tell me, is the bin for old
newsprint? I am disgusted
everytime I have to throw
away a can, or when I see the
SUB cleaning staff throwing
old newspapers in with the
regular garbage.
This is a serious issue.
Surely, if the AMS can afford
new computers, they can afford to set up a recycling
program for the university.
How expensive can some bi ns
marked "newspapers" or
"cans" be?
Let's get serious, stop
wasting student's time with
useless referendum issues
like allotment of SUB office
space (I mean, really, who
CARES?) and make a positi ve
step towards being an environmentally-friendly campus!
By the way, The Ubyssey
could really reduce the number of papers printed each
run.  You really are running
far more than necessary.

"... Unthinking
idiots"
My first reaction to the
handing out of violent, sexist
invitations to the women of
Place Vanier wasamazement.
You would think that after
the Montreal Massacre, the
events at Queen's, the EUS
nEUSlettre here at UBC last
year, and many other similar
incidents nationwide that
men would be more sensitive
to issues of sexism or racism.
I mean, how stupid can you
get? Don't these guys ever
read? Didn't they think about
the inevitable response ofthe
media and the university
community to their actions,
given the events of the past
year?
But there's more to it
than just stupidity and "boys
being boys." The persistence
of these hateful incidents
serves only to show how deep-
rooted sexism is in society.
What happened at Place
Vanier cannot be dismissed
as "just a bunch of unthinking
idiots" or an aberration. The
university is a microcosm of
our larger society and it is
obvious that we are not
learning from past mistakes.
It seems media coverage is
not causing men (and women)
to rethink their attitudes towards women and themselves.
Don't let the invitation-
writers fail to realise the
deeply offensive nature of
their behaviour. More importantly, we should not
laugh off this incident.
"Jokes" reveal a fair bit about
the values we hold, or at least
accept. Men should sincerely
consider their perception of
women and ask whether they
truly understand why such
events are hateful of women.

Jerks should
learn to cook
I am writing in response to
the article, "Obscene Letters at
Vanier Anger."
Well, anger is an understatement. And my anger only intensified after listening to the President of Cariboo House interviewed
on CBC Radio on October 16th.
At first he apologized for the letters, but his subsequent comments
showed how shallow his 'apology'
actually was.
Firstly, one ofhis major concerns was that the guilty men
might have their chances for restricted faculty admission (read:
Law, Medicine, etc.)reduced. And
that media exposure might pressure the university to take more
severe punitive action than he
thought was warranted.
Secondly, he spent a lot of
time talking about how some
people thought that the media had
blown this incident out of proportion.
I have no sympathy whatso-
everfor those guiltymen whohave
aspirations for Law or Medicine,
etc. While these men think they
are bright enough for these faculties, they could not find two brain
cells to rub together to figure out
that you cannot threaten women
with physical violence for fun. And
how they can see themselves as
capable of attending to people's
illnesses and legal matters when
they are totally incapable of acting responsibly towards their
fellow human beings is beyond
me.
It is time that the myth that
there is a sharp distinction between the student and the real
world should come to an end. Itis
time that male students learned
that there is no such thing as
'pranks' that are 'just fun' just
because they take place on campus. Threats are threats, and in
the real world there are punitive
consequences for such acts.
These jerks deserve to, at
least, be expelled from residence.
Maybe if they had to cook and
clean for themselves they would
have less time to plot the harassment of women.

Open letter to men
Hey guys, let's get it together.
I'm getting pissed off. There's too
much screwing up going on.
Marc Lepine and wife killers
i n Quebec, wife batterers and chil d
abusers everywhere, engineers
and written threats of violence
here at UBC. We're looking bad
guys. Let's get our act together.
Starting point: it ain't on to
hurt anyone or anything. Period.
Whatever the situation; no provocation, no frustration, no desperation ever justifies your violence. Know that in your being
and never doubt it.
You are a man and that means
you are going to carry some pain
and probably some shame. You
may need to grieve. Make for
yourself a way that that can happen. In nature, alone, or with other
men. Find some friends and gather
together as men. If you don't yet
feel a man, get yourself initiated,
somehow. Older men may help.
When you gather as men, call
each other on your stuff. You know
what is bullshit and what is real.
Share that clarity. Whatever the
ads say, whatever the crowd says,
whatever mixed messages you get,
show the courage to do what's
right. Don't hurt others. Or the
planet for that matter. Gathered
together, we can do great things.
About sex, a woman says
when. That's not our area. Surrender it. Maybe you feel it's not
fair but that's the way it is. (maybe
you get to say how.) Maybe you
feel scared, maybe angry, maybe
you feel rage, impotent and powerless. Use your strength on
yourself. It's weakness to give in
to violence. Learn other ways of
release and self defence. Walk, for
example; or run if necessary.
When somethingbad happens
and you feel like you want to die,
remember, you matter. Before it
gets to that, find some men you
care about, some men you can be
real with. Be real with yourself.
Don't expect any woman to carry
all your emotional eggs.
Find some guys to be an
asshole with. Know that you're a
jerk and that's OK. You are also a
man. And that's great.

and we took off in a gut of

and decided I was. This was hell,
and it was raining.
I looked across at Dave, who
was peering intently out ofthe
windscreen, mumbling to
himself. He was even shorter
than he looked in all those
pictures in "UBC Reports"—and
then it struck me. The man in
charge of UBC, the man who
shaped the destiny of thousands
with his policies of teachers who
"can't teach, but sure do good
research," his efforts to systematically erode the idea that a
university is a place where
students can be taught by
teachers, and thus learn things—
all his efforts to destroy these
ideals made sense now that I
knew he was actually Satan.
"I know what you're thinkin',
pal," he spat at me, his voice
suddenly coarse and full of dirt,
"and you're right. I got it all
figured out, and 111 do it, too. I'm
gonna run this place like a
business, make a pile of money,
retire my ass, and fuck anyone
who wants to get in my way.
Scholarship my ass. But enough
talk about me. It's time you saw
what you're gonna be doin' down
here...heh, heh, heh."
We drove through the
campus from hell for a few
minutes, and pulled up in front
of some ugly orange squat
buildings. I gasped. Totem Park!
No! I thought...
"Yup, you thought you'd got
away from here forever when you
moved to Gage, didn't you, my
little pee-on?" Dave roared,
"Well, you were WRONG!" There
was a bang, a flash, a smell of
sulfur, and all ofa sudden I was
facing Lloyd, the cafe manager
from hell. Dave was next to me.
"What the hell..." I began—
Dave cut me short.
"Nicely put, boy; that was
my teleporting ability. I do
it all the time. This
is...well, you
guys have
already
met. I've gotta go: I've got
money to ill-spend. Any trouble
from you, boy, and I'll teleport
your ass back to the gun em
placements down at that pissy
little museum we got. That's
where I live. Be seem' ya Lloyd."
And with a flash, a bang,
and a smell like a bad fart, Dave
Strangway, King ofthe Underworld, Lord of Hell, and president ofthe University, was gone.
I was alone, cold, hungry, in
Totem—and dead, to boot.
"Welcome to Hell, David. I
just know you're going to hate it
here. Everybody does," Lloyd
droned, nasally.
I was still stunned...could it
get worse? Here I was, dead,
doomed to spend the rest of my
death on the UBC campus in the
winter rain, in Totem Park, and
the only two people I knew were
Lloyd and Satan. It could, and it
did.
Lloyd, grinning, showed me
to a table. On it was a huge pile
of wet rubber rope, and an
enormous sheet of letters.
"That is your hell, David.
Enjoy."
"What...what is it? What do I
do?"
"Oh...you mean he didn't tell
you? That," he said, pointing at
the pile of wet rubber (it was
moving, I was sure), "is
Tortellini's spaghetti. You will
not leave hell until it has all
been eaten, or paid for. It costs,
of course, far too much."
"How much?"
"It's not a quantity, it's an
ideal. This is hell: it simply costs
too much. But that is not all. For
whilst eating, you must read
these letters that are on your
table. They are to The Ubyssey.
There are millions, and they are
all written by Kurt Preinsperg.
They detail his sexual fantasies."
I screamed in horror.
"Oh, that's not all. When
you've finished them, I've got a
big series from John Lipscomb: a
minute by minute account ofhis
life from shortly after conception
all the way up to last Wednesday, when he fearlessly scooped
furniture from the brink of
destruction."
I yelped in pain.
"Uh-huh. And after that, a
whole pile of crap from Sabrina
Hong...if you ever do finish those
letters, butt-wipe, you can go
back to your old room. Remember? The one with a view of B-
Lot? The one with all the Arts 1
neighbours who can stay up 'til 2
am 'cos they don't have a class
tomorrow 'til 11? Remember? Of
course you do! Ha Ha Ha Ha..."
I belched in agony. It was
going to be a long night.
