Happy flock of 'Birds celebrate national soccer victory
Socreds fund
SFU paper
By Rick Hiebert
The Social Credit Party is
helping fund the "independent"
right-wing student paper at Simon Fraser University, but a former party executive says "Liberte"
may only be the start. During
last month's Socred convention,
the party's Women's Auxiliary
helped Liberte raise nearly $600
in donations and subscriptions,
$250 of which came from a special
raffle the auxiliary held on October 22.
"We decided to hold the raffle
in honour of Mrs. W.A.C.
Bennett's (wife of former premier
W.A.C. Bennett) 90th birthday,
and to make some sort of donation
to the S.F.U. Liberte newspaper,"
said Eva Matheson, president of
the Socred Women's Auxiliary.
"We wanted to contribute in some
way and this seemed the best."
Matheson said the Women's
Auxiliary decided to fund the paper during the last provincial
board meeting before the convention. Matheson's pedecessor,
Shirley Muir said, "I can no longer
speak for the Women's Auxiliary,
but certainly helping Liberte was
our big project for this year?
This is just a beginning. We
Socreds want to get an alternative
newspaper at every B.C. university campus, at every college. We
want to get a balance. All we want
is parity," Muir said.
"It's up to the right-wing students at each school to put an alternative newspaper together and
now that Liberte has started,
other students can look to them for
guidance and assistance? Muir
said.
Matheson said she could not
confirm or deny Muir's statement
without first consulting the
auxiliary's membership.
Provincial NDP leader Mike
Harcourt, hearing the news for the
first time, said, "Liberte can't even
do this on their own. Great free
enterprisers, eh?"
Harcourt   said   the   Socreds

'Birds win nationals
By Angie Mclldoon and
Victor Chew Wong
This weekend a firefighter
and his crew of soccer players
extinguished the hopes of one
McMaster University en route to
capturing Canada's first ever
women's collegiate national title.
Brian Thomson, the Thunderbird soccer women's head coach,
led the five time Canada West
conference champions into the
history books by defeating the
McMaster University Mauraud-
ers 1-0 in an overtime shoot-out at
the Percival Molson Memorial
Stadium in Montreal on Sunday.
The final game was afrustrat-
ing one for the "Birds as they could
not establish their usual short
passing game on the stadium's
hard astroturf.
McMaster played the long
ball and the resulting high
bounces, twice as high as on natural turf, crippled UBC's passing
game.
The game ended in a scoreless
tie and had to be decided by two
fifteen minute overtime halves.
After a hard fought thirty
minutes of scoreless soccer, a
shoot-out was called to decide the
game.
The 'Birds opened the shootout scoring on a Linda Therrien
drive; Kathy Bockhold scored the
second goal and Mitch Ring
blasted in what would be the eventual winner.
Down by one goal, McMaster
had the final shot and potential
tying goal; it was hit hard and
straight towards the top of the
UBC net. The ball rattled the UBC
crossbar and UBC nerves then
sailed wide.
"We've been working hard
toward this all year? said Thomson. "The victory means nationwide recognition for women's soccer?
To qualify for the final on
Sunday the *Birds defeated the
University of Sherbrooke 4-1 on
Saturday on a muddy Concordia
University playing field.
Goal-getters in the UBC victory were Nancy Sutherland with
one, Christine Pinette with one,
and Colleen Koch with a pair.
Zabeen Janmohamed was
selected as the game's most valuable player and later the tournament MVP.
"The championship was a
great victory for all the players
who've played for five years? said
Janmohamed.
Among those players are
Janmohamed, Therrien, Bockhold, Sutherland, Tamara Gorman, Cindy Daily, and Angie
Mclldoon.
Janmohamed along with defender Sarah James was selected
to the CIAU second all-star team.
And captain Mitch Ring was bestowed first team all-star recognition.
"I don't think 111 ever be as
proud of any other team as I am of
this one? said Ring.
must have warped priorities when
the government does not
adequately fund universities but
the Socred party can find funds for
"a student propaganda sheet for
Social Credit".
"Why don't they come right
out and call it The Young Socred
Newspaper? If they are going to do
this, they should at least be proud
of it. I think the Socreds should
leave the SFU students and faculty alone and not support a
propaganda rag. Things like that
mitigate aganst freedom of expression? Harcourt said.
Harcourt said that he was familiar with Liberte, having been
chased to his car by "two of their
more virulent hawks" when he last
spoke at SFU. "They're a pretty
rabid small coterie that are running that rag," Harcourt said.
Liberte editor Gord Denusik
said he had no problem with voluntary donations from any groups
or individuals. "If the Canadian
Communist Party would give us
money, we'd take it? Denusik
said.
"Unlike The Peak (SFU's official student paper), we don't have
the benefit of compulsory student
funding and as long as people
aren't forced to contribute, I see no
problem? Denusik said.
Liberte associate business
manager Dave Mutka said, "I can't
see what the problem is. If people
want to bitch about raffling off
mugs, plates and paint can lids, I
feel sorry for them."
"It does look a little shady,
but the Women's Auxiliary traditionally does what it wants and
the party can't stop them? Mutka
said.
But both Matheson and Muir
said the Women's Auxiliary must
answer to the party executive. "We
work for the party and with the
party? Matheson said.
"The Socred Women's Auxiliary is an arm of the party," Muir
said. "It's under the control of the

Just one of the many obstacles that campus disabled students are confronted with each day
Disabled students want
to call the shots
John has taken a temporary
leave from classes. He needs special academic and crisis counselling for problems he faces in
dealing with his disability - multiple sclerosis - counselling he felt
he couldn't get at UBC.
John (a pseudonym) is a victim of a disruption in services following the dismissal of his counsellor, Cheryl Brown.
His case illustrates what
some disabled students identify as
a necessity for 'special need' counselling.
"What is most unique in the
service needs of the disabled is a
crises-need for emergency counselling. A student with a problem
who has to take a week off (because
of their disability) needs immedi
ate, skilled counselling? said Lee
Grenin, president of UBC's disabled students association.
But the UBC administration
wants counselling at UBC to head
in a different direction.
Instead of having a counsellor
designated for disabled students,
the administration is emphasizing
an integration of disabled students into the current counselling
services.
Vice president of student and
academic services K.D. Srivistava
said he "felt quite strongly that all
counsellors should be able to counsel all students. We can't sub-divide the students in small groups."
Dr. Perry Leslie, chair of the
president's committee on disabled
students, said "the goal of the
counselling service should be for
ait people on campus", adding that
he hoped to see the "integration of
the disabled population on campus?
But some disabled students
disagree.
"When you're a disabled student, you get tired of explaining
the limits of (your disability)? said
graduate student Carol Huber.
"(Students) expect some sort
of expertise with counsellors?
Huber said.
Even if a specific counsellor is
not designated, "people will just
fall into the habit of dealing with
one counselor? said Huber, which
would, in effect, bring UBC disabled students back to square one.

November 17,1987 Socred $ may
kill Liberte
from page 1
party executive and it has no seperate identity of it's own as a society."
Like the Young Socreds, Muir
said, "everything we do has to
generally be approvedby the party
executive. The party executive
heard our idea (to fund Liberte),
really liked it and approved it."
Mutka said that Liberte staffers were invited to the convention
as young journalists, not Young
Socreds. "We're a fully independent, commercially run newspaper.
"It's great to get the support.
If the paper gets going really well,
it's more than likely that Liberte
will help out other papers that are
just starting out, with moral support, financial if possible? Mutka
said.
SFU's official student paper,
The Peak, is unphased about
Liberte's Socred backing. News
coordinator Jeff Buttle said, "if
Liberte can raise money auctioning shovels and the Simon Fraser
Student Society says it's okay,
more power to them."
"I hope they are doing everything by the book, abiding by the
rules they have as a club. (But) if
what they're doingis illegal, I hope
they get tripped up on it? Buttle
said.
Liberte has had problems
meeting SFU regulations since its
founding last February. Starting
without legal status, the paper
distributed its second issue under
the auspices of the SFU Ayn Rand
Club, getting the latter group's
funding temporarily frozen after
budgeting its cost at only $4 per
issue.
"Liberte has been really
sneaky about all this? said Simon
Fraser Student Society representative Rhonda Spence. "First they
just appear on campus, with no apparent backing. It's never been
identified as a branch of the Young
Socreds, but they are taking their
time forming their own club?
To be entirely legitimate, she
said, Liberte would have to declare
themselves as either a Young
Socred paper, or a branch of the
Young Socred club.
Liberte only recently formed a
campus club, handing in the necessary constitution and membership lists within the last two
weeks. But the paper has yet to
hand in the necessary budget with
detailed revenues and expenditures that all SFU clubs require.
"We have a club policy that
allows funding from external
sources? said Carol Hartmann, a
SFSS executive. "As they aren't
asking for money, all we can do is
insist that they arefinanciallyac-
countable."
Hartmann says Liberte staff
told her most of their money was
from advertising, and that they
hadn't recieved a check from the
Women's Auxiliary.
According to Spence, if ties between the SFU Young Socreds and
Liberte are too close, the Socreds
may have to abolish one of the
groups from campus.
"Liberte and the Young Socreds could be overlapping and we
have to find out what the relationship between them is before we
take action on this? Spence said.
Mike Harcourt says Sdcreds must have warped priorities if they can find
funds for a student propaganda sheet but not for education.

THE UBYSSEY/7 Council members
confer in
Cajun country
By Katherine Monk
The AMS is three thousand
dollars poorer, but richer in ideas,
after three council members
spent four days in New Orleans,
Louisiana, for a student leadership conference November 4-8.
Conference delegate Simon
Seshadri, and board of governors
student representative, said the
conference was useful because it
was the only one of its kind in
North America, where administrators and council all meet and
exchange ideas.
"It was a faaantastic trip,
people told us ifyou want to go to
one conference, go to this one.
Granted we got gooned every
night, but we also made all the
sessions? said Seshadri.
Jody Woodland, AMS vice
president and conference delegate, said "I didn't see anything
that really inspired me, but what
I did get was ideas on how to do
things which might inspire others?
"I learned about campus outreach programs which would
organize volunteer work into one
central agency. What happens is
that people go out and do things
and nobody knows about them?
said Woodland. Centralizing volunteer groups would make them
more visible and accessible to the
community, said Woodland.
The representatives found
topics such as student government liability, improved orientation programs, and campus integration to be the most relevant to
UBC's needs.
The motion to send the
three council members to New
Orleans for the National Conference on Student Services was
passed at the September 23
student's council meeting as a
last minute addition to the
agenda.
"It was probably O.K. to send
the people, but it was too rushed.
We should have had at least a
month to think about it. It's also
unfortunate that it was in New
Orleans, and not someplace really unpleasant," said Graeme
Luke, graduate society representative.
"That's why we waited so
long, we never thought anyone
would want to send us, because
it's New Orleans? said Woodland.
"Students should be concerned that these conferences
don't turn into party junkets, but
conferences are part and parcel of
student government, and you
need to meet people and discuss
ideas? said Woodland.
The three delegates will
present a report to council on
Wednesday evening.
UBC -debaters undaunted
The UBC debating society
team swept to victory at the
1987 B.C. Speaking Championships held at UBC on November
7. Competing against representatives from UVic, SFU, UBC
and student political organizations, the UBC team won the
overall speaking titled the provincial overall team award, the
affirmative speech award, the
negative speech team award,
and novice honors.
Debating society president,
Colin Lim, led the UBC team
winning the overall speaking
title with an argument for free
trade and an argument against.
Lim's teammate Alex Kask was
the runner-up followed closely
by independent representative,
Dean Lastoria. Lim and Kask
later teamed to win the overall
team award.
In the affirmative speech
category, two former B.C. provincial highschool speaking
winners scrapped it out. The
winner by a mere point was
UBC debsoc member, Janine
Benedet. Benedet gave a very
well organized speech on seriate
reform which received the high
est marks of the competition.
UBC tory and debsoc member,
Jeff Friesen had to console himself with the silver while Kask
took the bronze. Benedet later
teamed up with her rookie partner, Murray Browne for the top
affirmative speech team honors.
The tournament was
marked by controversy when
Lastoria delivered his speech in
the negative speech category .
Lastoria questioned and sometimes mocked democracy in his
seven minute address. But, he
was awarded with top negative
speech honors. Debsoc speakers, Doris Anderson and Colin
Lim, followed in second in a
rare tie.
Anderson and Lim were
also successful in completing
UBC's debsoc sweep of the team
titles by easily out scoring their
nearest rivals for the negative
speech team award.
Debsoc's Murray Browne
was awarded top novice honors, while UVic's Kevin Jones
and UBC NDP representative
Paul Allen made the podium tp
break the debsoc stranglehold.

Saskatchewan social services
minister says gays unfit to adopt
REGINA (CUP) — A human
rights group is calling for the
resignation of Saskatchewan's
minister of Social Services after
he said homosexual couples
should not be allowed to adopt
children.
"I don't believe homosexuals
should be allowed to adopt children in this province, and that is
the state of adoption right now?
Grant Schmidt told reporters at
the provincial legislature October 29. "We have more stable
families lining up for adoption
and we believe we should do
what's best for children."
When a reporter asked
Schmidt why homosexual
couples would be less stable than
heterosexuals, Schmidt answered, "go and find out for yourself."
Following this comment,
Schmidt's chief of staff, Len
Schnell, escorted the minister
away, telling reporters, "Okay
guys, end of the program, he answered your questions."
"(Premier) Grant Devine ultimately has the responsibility
for what his minister said, and
the premier has got to come out
and explain what his stand is?
said Peter Millard of the newly
formed Coalition for Human
Equality.
"Are there two classes of citizens? Does he agree with the
minister of social services? And if
he doesn"t he must take steps to
remedy that. The obvious thing is
to remove Mr. Schmidt? said
Millard who is also chair of the
department of English at the
University of Saskatchewan.
But Schmidt said in a CBC-
TV interview that his policy is
supported by the rest of the Progressive Conservative government caucus.
Mona Acker, a professor at
the University of Regina's School
of Social Work, said research
shows that gay and lesbian
couples are as adept at parenting
as heterosexual couples.
Acker quoted studies done
between 1979 and 1981 based on
interviews with 37 heterosexual
and 43 lesbian mothers. The
studies concluded that the children of lesbian mothers had the
same psychological makeup and
male-female behaviour as children of single mothers and
heterosexual couples.
Erin Shoemaker, western
spokesperson for the United
Church gay and lesbian organization (Affirm), said Schmidt has no
right to make moral judgements.
"As a church member I am
concerned about Grant Schmidt
arbitrarily deciding who is Christian and who is not and on the
basis of that, whether we're really
fit people or not? Shoemaker
said.
Wayne Rorke, the coordinator of the Saskatchewan Adoptive
Parents Association, said that
gay and lesbian adoptive parents
would be welcome in that organization.
"We don't discriminate? he
said.

Jackson named
all-star
By Victor Chew Wong
On the road this weekend the
UBC men's varsity basketball
team found their groove and found
second place at the Manitoba Invitational tournament in Winnipeg.
In the modified round-robin
tournament UBC finished 2-1
behind Saskatchewan's 3-0 record; however, because of the
round-robin format the two conference rivals did not meet this
weekend.
On Friday in their first game
the Thunderbirds defeated head
coach Bruce Enns' alma mater, the
University of Winnipeg, 84-74.
J.D. Jackson led the "Birds attack
with 19 points. Mike Clarke and
Alan Lalonde added 14 and 12
points respectively.
Saturday's 95-91 loss to the
powerhouse University of Toronto
was also UBC's best game of the
season according to Enns.
It was a game which either
team could have won. With less
than a minute remaining in the
game the "Birds had an opportunity to close Toronto lead to 91-88
if they could convert two bonus
free-throws.
But the early season problem
of poor free-throw shooting hampered the 'Birds again; they missed the front end of the bonus and
Toronto preserved their lead.
Once again J.D. Jackson led
UBC offensively with 27 points
while Alan Lalonde added 12.
Toronto's Fred Murrell led all
scorers with a game high 40
points.
In their final game of the tournament UBC downed McMaster
University 74-68. J.D. Jackson led
the 'Birds again with 21 points and
in the process earned himself a
place on the tournament all-star
team.
"J.D. (Jackson) played well
offensively this weekend but what
I was very pleased with was his
defensive play? said Enns.
T-birds spike Lethbridge
By Franka Cordura Von Specht
On the road this weekend the
UBC women volleyballers broke
into the Canada West win column
with a straight games victory over
the University of Lethbridge.
The 'Birds defeated Lethbridge 15-4, 15-12, 16-14 on Saturday in a strong attacking game.
"Lethbridge was making the unforced errors? said UBC head
coach Donna Baydock.
Micki Mallette, who played
consistently all weekend, led the
team with 13 kills.
"Amy Ku played very well in
coordinating the complicated running offense? said Baydock.
The win was a total team effort as all players were given a
chance to play.
In the 15-12,15-11,15-14 loss
to Calgary the previous evening it
was UBC's unforced errors that
hurt them.
Leading UBC against Calgary were power hitters Sonya
Wachowski with ten kills and
three stuff blocks and Mallette
with seven kills and an impressive
18 digs.
"We were far too tentative on
our attack; they took advantage of
the many chances we gave them?
said Baydock.
The 'Birds next action is in
their home opener this coming
weekend against the University of
Saskatchewan at War Memorial
Gym.
Hockey 'birds split
The UBC varsity hockey
team split their two game
series against the University
of Lethbridge Pronghorns this
weekend on the Prairies.
On Friday's game the
"Birds were down 4-0 after
two periods before spoiling
the Lethbridge shut-out with
two goals in the third.
On Saturday, UBC was
behind 5-2 in the second
period and looked like they
were going to go home with
no points in their pockets but
the 'Birds rallied and
outscored the Pronghorns 5-0
in the third and escaped with
a 7-5 victory.
The split moves UBC's
record to 4-6 and fifth place in
the Canada West hockey race.

November 17 1987 Froshes do Dr. Ruth dance
"We're minors so if we can't
have booze, we'll have sex!"
:. Bendle
With these words the planning
of the FYSC's Dr. Ruth Dance
continued that eventful Thursday
not so long ago. I slouched down
further in my seat, pulled my spy
hat ($14.99 in the Sam Sleuth
Christmas Catalogue) over my
eyes, and tried to look inconspicuous. Pulling my hat up just a bit so
I could see, I stealthily glanced
around the Council Chambers
(upstairs in the SUB).
Very interesting, I thought to
myself. This dance, planned for
November 20th, sounds like a
cover-up for lurid, suggestive
activities. Sounds subversive, sounds
lustful, sounds dionystic.I'd better go
and check it out myself in my Sam
Sleuth notebook (special $2.15 in the
S.S.C.C.)
The FYSC you ask? Oh yeah,
this stands for the First Year Students'
Council. Yeah, they're a not-so-secret,
not-so -underground organization.
They get all moralistic and say that
they want to get all first year students,
here in this institute of higher
academia, to join in, to get involved,
to actually have fun for their 2000
smackaroos. They say they would like
everyone to come to their weekly
12:30-1:30 meetings and help plan
dances, Whistler trips, and intramural
participation. But I know that they just
want to brainwash more of our youth
into becoming "party people"'
(a.k.a. commies).
I thought to myself yet
another thought ( for I was on a
roll) -I must warn the youth! I
can't let them become involved
with so-called fun.Youth, don't go
to these meetings or to this dance;
study, you must study. Lunch hour
is the perfect time to skip into the
library, find a copy of The Essays
of A.J.Muste (JX 1963 M8455
1967) or Linear Transformations
& Matrices (QA 251 FS 1967) and
memorize! Youth, these meetings
will subvert you, don't go!
And with this warning, I end
my report. This is Sam Sleuth
signing off.

THE UBYSSEY/5 Liberte funds small part
of Socred agenda
Thank the gods the Socreds women's
auxiliary is doing progressive and socially useful work. Holding a raffle for the
hopefully soon-to-be-defunct right wing
rag Liberte keeps them off the street when
they might be wasting their time working
at a soup kitchen, or raising money for
east end childrens' lunches in Vancouver's
schools. It is fine work for a group anxious
to save the world from the socialist hordes.
Obviously the pressing issues of the day
include attacking trade unions, and pushing for a province of Kerkhoffs and Jim
Pattisons.'
Thank the gods the Socreds women's
auxiliary is doing progressive and
socially useful work.
But why blame the auxiliary? They are
only doing what the Socred party executive "really liked and approved". And what
the Socred executive approved is one more
platform to spread the gospel, the right
wing liturgy of Bill Vander Zalm. Vander
Zalm is trying to blow the union movement out of the water because unions are
a threat to owners. Vander Zalm is trying
to sell provincial assets because he is
philosophically opposed to government involvement in the market place. Vander
Zalm wants a return to the market economy of the nineteenth century when capital was king and the worker the serf. Publications like Liberte provide the Socred
faithful with one more organ to spread the
message.
Thus, the issue is not whether or not
Liberte should exist. Liberte has the same
right to publish as any other publication
as long as Liberte tells people they are
funded by the Social Credit party. What is
worrisome is that the political agenda of
the Socreds is not to govern B.C. but to
radically alter the social and political
landscape of this province.

'But I like Corinne," said Patrick Kirkwood quickly to Steven Scrimshaw
when he noticed Corinne Bjorge walking into the room. Corinne's
newfound self-esteem was shattered. "Who else has been talking about
me behind my back?" she asked aggressively. Everyone stared intently
at their word processors while she glanced around. The tips of Laura
Busheikln's ears burned bright red as she bent over the entertainment
calender. Looking extremely unconcerned, Victor Chew Wong cracked
open a tin of cold corn using his teeth as an opener, and said, "I do all the
time, Corinne," just before he took a spoonful." Angie Mclldoon glanced
nervously fron one to the other. Was there going to be a showdown? Sure
enough, Corinne pulled out her shiny new pistol, twirled it on her finger, and
was pointing it at Victor when Ross McLaren grabbed her hand. "We're
supposed to print the news - not make it," he growled. "Yeah, take a
Valium," Katherine Monk said. Kevin Kirkwood profferred a bottle of green
neon-coloured pills. "Try one of these. They're much better than Valium."
Not one to avoid wild, new sensations, Corinne popped a couple. Chris
Wiesinger, ever the gallant, caught her as she swooned. Michael J. Bryant
not so gallantly pushed sleeping Rick Hiebert off the couch to make room
for Corinne's limp body. Jody Woodland offered to run to the Lounge for
a glass of water - and never returned. Alex Johnson wandered over from
that lost land across the hall, the typesetting room, to ask if anything was
ready to typeset. "What a stuuupid question!" muttered Randy Shore.
Colin Lim nodded in agreement. "Of course not." Just then Corinne sat
straight up and began speaking trance-like in a language no one could
understand, not even Peter Francis who had taken a course in 'How to
Break the Code of Any Language in Sixty Seconds or Less'. Franka Cordura
Von Specht looked frightened. "That's devil talk - I know it." "If Satan
wanted to say something, he wouldn't waste his time using an
unintelligible language," Carolyn Sale said drily. Trying to be helpful, Steve
Chan ran to get the book on witches and devils he was reading in the dark
room while he waited for pictures to develop. Corinne's strange muttering
continued without cessation. "Maybe we need an exoricst, "Chris Brereton
suggested tremulously.   Everyone looked at Lisa Langford...

Letters
Critique
critiqued
After reading Mary
Ainslie's review of Less
Than Zero (Nov.13) I
doubted whether she had
seen the same movie I was
forced to endure. As Ms.
Ainslee suggested, the film
attempts to answer the
question: "What if you are
an L.A. teenager ... and has
<sic> your own platinum
American Express card?"
but my only reply is a simple
"Who cares?". It was infuriating to pay six dollars in
order to sit through what
amounted to be glorified
Gee-drugs-are-bad-Just-
say-no public service announcement.
The movie failed dramatically as well. The producers obviously believed
that a generic, hard rock
soundtrack, coupled with a
cheap surrealist look, could
compensate for a retarded
script and a non-existent
plot. The performances,
which Ms. Ainslee felt were
"surprisingly good", are horridly bad. J ami Gertz is nice
to look at but can't utter a
line without the accompanying "Is my paycheck ready?"
gleam in her eyes, and Andrew McCarthy drifts
through his role as if in a
Valium-induced coma. Yes,
Ms. Ainslee, the sex scenes
give a "thrill", but unfortunately they amount to only a
few minutes of the entire
film.
Ms. Ainslee states that
the film "tries to explain
how easy it is to succumb to
the craaazy life style of
L.A.", but it is a pointless
exercise: we all know about
Live Fast, Die Young credo
of   hard-core   Californian.

Place Vanier appeal board's
tactics quesitoned
So you want to live in residence....
Well, my advice to you
is stay out of trouble and
don't cause any accidents.
Ifyou do, don't tell your advisors!
Recently I was reminded of just how biased
the disciplinary system
can be at the residences.
An acquaintance accidentally discharged a fire
alarm and did the crazy
thingofadmittingtoit. He
was subsequently brought
in front of the Place Vanier
Standards Committee, a
group of unbias students
who have no direct ties
with Student Housing.
They gave him three
points on a four point system because of a number of
mitigating factors including the accidental nature
of the incident.
Student Housing was
not pleased with the results and Carl Cooper, the
Residence Life Coordinator from Vanier appealed
the     decision. Pat
Buchanan, Assistant Director of Housing, also disliked the decision and
asked an advisor to appeal
the decision.
To help the accused
defend the appeal, I tried
to look at past cases to determine precidence. The
funny thing is, I had to talk
to Pat Buchanan or Carl
Cooper to get the information. They would not give
me any information due to
the confidentiality of the
people involved. I guess
they havn't heard of liquid
paper and a photocopier to
blank out names. Further,
they said I could not speak
at the hearing because I
have a legal background.
At the appeal, who
was sitting on the board
but Pat Buchanon and two
of Carl Cooper's colleagues. They eventually
discounted most of the testimony from six witnesses
and reflected the reasoning of the standards
committee in order to evict
my brother.
This appeal board is
an excellent example of a
Kangaroo court (a self-appointed body that disregards existing principles of
law, human rights, etc....).
Student Housing obviously wanted any tampering with a fire alarm,
whether accidental or not,
to result in eviction. Having the witnesses and accused appear before them
was a mere formality. Now
they can sit back and smile
as a quiet first year student and a foreign exchange student (who did
the same thing as the accused) pack their bags and
leave their friends. I just
wish Pat Buchanon and
Carl Cooper one day walk
down a hallway and trip
causing the fire alarm to go
off. Then they may realize
how absurd their decision
was.

Marzari blasts
Socred
program to
indoctrinate
students
According to a report in
the Vancouver Sun on Friday, October 23rd Social
Credit Women's Auxiliary
vice president Shirley Muir
called on her party to "infiltrate and indoctrinate...our
gullible" post secondary students. Only then, Ms. Muir
argues, will the Social
Credit party be able to compete with "left-wingers" on
campus.
As the New Democratic
post-secondary critic I've
spent the last several
months meeting with the
college and university communities, including student
groups. Boy, have I got some
news for Ms. Muir.
It's actually very
simple. Students aren't gullible. They won't be indoctri -
nated. Anyone who tries to
infiltrate them for their own
purposes will not succeed.
There is another lesson
here. Ms. Muir's patently
silly call to arms illustrates
just how deeply the Social
Credit Party and government misunderstands the
whole point of education.
Again, this should be a
simple point. Students
learn, they aren't indoctrinated. Political parties that
prefer indoctrination to
learning don't deserve to be
called democratic.
Students understand
this. I wish I could say the
same about the government.

November 17,1987 Defense intercepts
Laurier victory
by Michael J. Bryant
The defensive squad for the
UBC Thunderbirds have been
pulling off cathartic wins for the
football team all season, and they
did it again this weekend.
On Saturday afternoon before
a capacity UBC crowd, the Laurier
Golden Hawks handed them the
almost impossible challenge of
overcoming a five point deficit
with 2:04 left in the game, and
Laurier with the ball.
But somehow they pulled
through again, coming from behind to win the Western Bowl 33-
31, and advancing to the Vanier
Cup next Saturday against the
McGill Redmen.
Laurier seemed to have it all:
a first down on its own 43 yard
line, a five point lead, and barely
two minutes on the clock. One
pass later, however, it was over.
Defensive back Mike Nykolaichuk
intercepted Laurier quarterback
Rod Philip's pass, and ran it back
for a touchdown.
"Our defense was spotty at
times? Nickolaichuk said after
the game, "but we've been winning
hke this all year. I don't know if
my heart can take another one of
these nail-biters?
Indeed, the UBC defense
struggled with the Hawks' option
play all game, allowing Laurier to
score more points against "Birds
than any other team this season.
"Their option worked well for
them? UBC defensive back Jordan Leith said. Leith and Gagner
were both nominated for All-Canadian honors.
But there was always Air
Jordan to drop a few bombs for the
UBC side. 'Birds quarterback
Jordan Gagner threw for a UBC
single-game record 427 yards,
completing 22 of 40 attempts and
two touchdowns to wide receiver
Craig Keller. "He's the best,"
Laurier quarterback Philip said of
Gagner. Not surprisingly, Gagner
was voted the Western Bowl's
Most Valuable Player.
Wide receiver/kicker Mike
Bellefontaine added 12 points
with his four field goal.
The "Birds were dealt a huge
blow to their rushing attack with
the loss of their star tailback Matt
Pearce. Pearce suffered a broken
hand and will not play in the
Vanier Cup.
Rugby men top Capilano
by Donald Jow
The UBC Thunderbird rugby
team demonstrated their depth on
Sunday by beating the Capilano
rugby club 9-0 on the Cap's home
field.
UBC played with only 9 of
their regulars because of injuries
and a Canada-U.S. nationals
game on Saturday, but still pulled
off the win over one of the five best
clubs in the province.
Pouring rain made life miserable for spectators and backs
alike. The slippery ball rarely
found its way out to the backline.
When it did, the next sight was
usually a back liberally coating
himself with mud by faceplanting
and sliding across the field.
The conditions dictated that
the play remain in the forwards
which normally gives UBC teams
a lot of trouble. Coach Rod Holloway felt that the "Birds coped
well Sunday.
"We don't usually adjust to
the hard, driving forward play
necessary to win a game like this?
said Holloway. "Today, the 'Birds
avoided frustration. It was a good
win for us."
In the first half there were
countless dropped balls. Bruce
Jordan missed a penalty kick, the
only scoring chance of the half,
shortly before halftime.
As has been typical this year,
the "Birds started the second half
strongly. They altered their play,
kicking just in front of the forwards and kept Capilano pinned
on defence.
Eight minutes into the half,
Jordan notched the first score of
the game on a penalty from 10
metres out.
Seven minutes later, the
'Birds scored again. Tighthead
prop Ian Scholnick, the dominant
player of the game, split the Cap's
front row, allowing UBC to drive
the Cap's pack 10 metres. Pierre
Duey picked the ball out of the
back of the scrum and passed it to
Evan Scholnick for the score. Jordan closed out the scoring with the
convert
The Capilanos closed the
game with a rush, threatening to
score three times but failing.

Light crews sweep
On Sunday, in their most
competitive regatta of the season the Thunderbird crews
regained their high standings
in the west coast rowing circuit.
At the Head of the Lake
Regatta in Seattle, the UBC
crews pulled through the turbulent waters of the 4.5km
headrace with most of the top
times on the course, racing
against such crews as the Universities of Victoria, Washington, and Oregon.
The men's lightweight
crews put in superb performances and made a clean sweep.
The A boat won first place
standings with a time of 16:08,
and the B boat captured second
place with a time of 16:15.
The varsity men's heavyweight crew came in to an extremely close second place finish in their category with a
time of 14:48 - only four seconds
behind UVic's top boat.
