Array Socreds say 'scrap arts'
B.C. student politicians are
alarmed at apparent efforts by the
universities ministry to exert control
over the spending priorities of B.C.
The Social Credit government
wants universities to prepare to
eliminate certain programs because
government funding will not likely
exceed the cost of living, warned
Robert Stewart, deputy minister of
universities, in a recent letter to the
Universities Council of B.C.
But Stewart said in the letter that
expansion "must" continue in the
faculties of medicine, engineering
and probably business administration.
The letter sets "a very dangerous
precedent," Chris Niwinski, student board of governors representative, said Monday.
"It infringes on the freedom of
universities, he said.
Provincial universities director
Dean Goard said Stewart's letter is
Cuts could cancel
U of W programs
a warning to the universities not to
plan on growth and increased funding for at least the next five years.
"In the next few years funding will
be tight," Goard said Monday.
"Maybe the answer is restricting
enrolment to provide the same
quality of education but not quantity. The tone of the letter was 'don't
ignore that possibility.' "
Goard said the letter implied that
expansion in medicine, engineering
and business administration would
be compensated by reductions in
the humanities and liberal education programs.
"It   may,    for   example,   be
Opposition is mounting in Washington state against the growing
government trend to cut back funding to post-secondary education.
Clayton Lewis, University of
Washington student council president said the government cutbacks
threaten to eliminate the faculties of
forestry, education, urban planning
and social work at that university.
"Basically, the students throughout the higher education institutions in Washington state are very
angry and frustrated," Lewis said
Monday. "This fall tuition went up
76 per cent and now we are watching the quality of education go
down the tube.
"Students are rallying with community members to let the legislators know that higher education is a
very high priority for people in the
state of Washington," he added.
Lewis said the graduate professional students society is concerned
the cuts will prevent students from
completing advanced degrees.
He said they have drafted a resolution demanding "the governor
call a special session of the state legislature and urge that the legislators
devise a solution to the state's fiscal
crisis ... to eliminate the emergency conditions."
A special session of the state legislature will take place Nov. 9,
Lewis said. Governor John Spell-
man and many politicians, both
Democrat and Republican, have
called the proposed cuts unacceptable and favor a tax increase to offset the state's fiscal crisis, he said.
AMS 'not effective'
The arts undergraduate society's
campaign to draw students to today's board of governors meeting
appears doomed to failure.
The society "wants to impress
upon the board that students are
concerned about cutbacks" said
AUS president Paul Yascowich
Thursday. The society last week
launched a campus wide poster
campaign to alert students that the
board meeting will take place in
SUB council chambers for the first
time ever.
Despite the publicity, a Ubyssey
survey taken Monday did not turn
up a student who knew of the
The AUS has rented the SUB
party room, located across from the
council chambers, for the same time
the board meeting is scheduled.
Organizers hope for a large student
turnout to back an invitation for
the board to hold its meeting in the
party room.
Yascowich charged the administration with having a poor attitude towards students, saying student needs are not adequately
represented to the government.
"As soon as you disregard
students, what is there to a university?" he said.
Yascowich said the AUS started
the campaign because, "the bottom
line is that the Alma Mater Society
is simply not effective in getting the
message across to the administration."
"I'm pleased they (the AUS ex
ecutive are trying to get students out
to back up what we will be saying to
the board, said AMS president
Marlea Haugen.
But she added it is important for
students to make a rational statement and not offend the board.
"The board and administration
work .their asses off to get funds.
We should be supporting them by
not harassing them but the provincial government instead," she said.
Haugen said she has "no intention of standing up there before the
board whimpering and crying,"
and said she would "hit them with
hard, cold facts, that's what they
Student board representative
Chris Niwinski said he is skeptical
about the board accepting the AUS
invitation to open the meeting to
"We always look for support,
but as a board rep I wish they had
told me about this far enough ahead
of time, he said. "The agenda is
tight, I just cannot see the board being reasonably expected to
postpone things for something they
knew nothing about."
Niwinski said he and fellow
board rep Anthony Dickinson will
present board members with a brief
outlining recommendations for setting tuition fees.
"We expect constructive criticism
from students, and a better
understanding of the financial problems facing students from the
board," Niwinski said.
Pit prices jump again
For the second time in three
months students have been hit with
a price increase on alcohol served at
Across the board increases
Friday raised bottled beer to $1.25
from $1.20 and a jug of draft to
$3.75 from $3.50. Other prices have
also taken a corresponding jump.
In July the price of bottled beer
was raised five cents and draft jugs
60 cents.
The increases have caught stu
dent council members by surprise.
Several council members interviewed Friday said they were not aware
of the increase.
The AMS budget approved by
council in July set a maximum of
$1.20 for bottled beer, five cents
lower than the new price. Executive
members declined comment Monday on the price discrepancy.

universities in order that they can be
concentrated to the point of viability," Stewart said in the letter.
"It may even be necessary to take
some action with respect to entrance requirements which could
conceivably reduce the total
number of university students in the
province," he added.
Niwinski said Stewart's letter has
dangerous ramifications.

said. "The government is being

Concert dispute rocks AMS
There won't be as many concerts
this year at UBC.
. A dispute between a local promoter and the Alma Mater Society
has already killed two shows and
left future prospects uncertain.
Poor relations between the AMS
and Vancouver-based Perryscope
Concerts flared when a showcase of
four local bands fell through under
pressure from promoter Norman
Perry, according to Merel Aydin,
AMS programs committee staff
Aydin claims Perry is placing impossible restrictions upon promotion of events, but Perry says Aydin
is blacklisting him at UBC.
The four band showcase was
financed by the AMS and organized
with local promoter Bud Luxford
and CITR, the campus radio station. AU was going well until Lux-
ford refused to sign the contract
which would have confirmed performances by Corsage, the Melody
Pimps, Buddy Selfish and Mrs.
Luxford's Fish, Aydin said.
Perry said the contract wasn't
signed because Luxford wants to
maintain the status quo of working
with Perryscope and not with the

Students 'will pay for apathy'
UBC students are no longer a
significant political force and they
will pay for their apathy, provincial NDP leader Dave Barrett
warned Friday.
BARRETT ... no fight
"There's no fighting spirit in
this university. You've got no
political clout," Barrett told 500
students in Angus 110.
"Students in my time were
politically ignorant and they still
are. Most of you students don't
even know who your MP is and
that's what the politicians want."
As an example of apathy, Barrett said the prime minister has
been allowed to use the constitutional issue to divert public attention from real problems.
"It's an ad man's dream, what's
going on right now. But you're
not saying a bloody word," he
said. "You're the silent student of
the 1980s."
He warned students if they do
not take political action they will
"suffer" the consequences with
higher unemployment rates,
higher interest rates and continuing inflation.
"We should have more brains
in dealing with our resources."
The government is giving the
province away to foreign investors
and then claiming they have no
money for social services, he said.
"But remember this is all in the
name of free enterprise — thank
goodness we have businessmen
running the government rather
than the dumb socialists," he said
"As a result of this we have a
laissez-faire attitude towards the
social consequences," he added,
citing the Social Credit government's refusal to solve the provincial housing crisis as an example.
"They believe in socialism for
themselves and private enterprise
for everyone else."
Barrett said the formation of
the B.C. Resources Investment
Corporation is another example
of Socred fiscal irresponsibility.
When the NDP were in power,
he said, it bought major companies in the forest industry and
"with a little bit of luck and $40
million we expanded those assets
to $450 million."
"Then they were thrown into
BCRIC and for the first time in
the civilized world people were
asked to pay for something they
already owned."
Barrett also charged that the
Socreds spent $30 million advertising the project just before the
1979 provincial election.
"Some people said that was
political — not me. My wife said
only a group of used car dealers
could come up with that one."
He added: "We're sucking
wind on those shares now."
In response to a student's question, Barrett said that the NDP
could not rescue BCRIC.
"The premier said he was going
to give people a lesson in
capitalism and give them a piece
of the rock: he didn't tell them
they'd get it in the head.
"It's    the    first    case   of

UBC gets'suspicious'
mind bending power
UBC's participation in Mindpower, an American based publicity
campaign for post-secondary education, is a suspicious enterprise,
the Alma Mater Society external affairs officer said Monday.

and format of the campaign. "I'm
concerned that I don't know anything about it," he said. "Why the

and the government to the importance of post-secondary needs,"
UBC spokesperson Jim Banham
said Monday.
"Banham is keeping us in the
dark until Oct. 13 when there's a
big pooh-bah meeting about it,"
Hollis said. "Banham's being really
secretive about it. He just told me
about the slick ad campaign in Canada and the U.S."
Hollis said he is troubled by the
mysterious project. "How's it being
run? Who's funding it?" he asked.
"Maybe we're just jumping the
gun," he added. "It may be a great
program. But why aren't students
in on it? No students have been
An American fund-raising organization, the Council for Advancement and Support of Education, is
behind the campaign, Banham said.
"(UBC president Doug) Kenny is
in the process of putting together a
coordinating committee of the people in the university connected with
audio-visual and external university
contacts," he added.
He said the campaign will include
posters, bumper stickers, radio advertisements and possible television
spots aimed at informing the public
of the virtues of post-secondary
"I suppose, looked at in the general goals of the campaign, the university is interested in the giving
from the private sector. The private
sector contributes quite a deal (to
the university). We are looking for
this to be maintained and increased," Banham said.
"There will be as much student
involvement in the campaign as students want," he added.

attention at UBC. Niwinski said he
will not bring up the issue of

Aug. 20, was distributed to the

administrative level.

was telling universities how to cut
courses, but he admitted the tone of
the letter may have suggested that
to some. "We can make suggestions
but the universities have to make
the priorities," he said. "We can
support areas of priority."
Goard said the ministry was not
trying to infringe upon the
autonomy of universities. "Universities are becoming more accountable to the government — that is
going on and there is no doubt
about it. But I don't think it (the
letter) is a threat to their

increased funding to prevent

Advise and dictate
There is a very disturbing trend in relations between
the provincial ministry of universities, science and
communications and the three B.C. universities.
That trend is the increasingly vocal "guidance" offered by the ministry about course priorities.
Ministry officials are becoming quicker at pointing
out that according to the Universities Act these institutions are autonomous bodies when it comes to determining their structure and offerings. "We can only advise and support," say the officials, "we would never
try and tell universities how to do things."
Yet the ministry appears to be walking a thin line
between advice and command in its recently revealed
missive to the universities. Phrases in deputy minister
Robert Stewart's letter to the Universities Council of
B.C. have authoritative and suggestive connotations.
The letter is peppered with phrases such as: "it will
continue to be necessary;" "will have to be compensated?' "must strive;" and "it is better to have." The
word "suggest" never appears, and "must" is always
used instead of "should."
The most disturbing part of the trend is that the
ministry is telling universities they must, not should,
complete the medicine, engineering and business administration expansion. They will have to, not may,
compensate by decreasing lower priority areas.
The ministry, while not directly saying so, is also
telling the universities what courses to cut. After implying that low priority areas are those which are furthest removed from the big three — engineering,
medicine and business administration — it mentions
We hate to nag, but especially in light of the
pressure being brought to bear upon the UBC board of
governors, it is imperative that as many students as
possible attend the Arts Undergraduate Society sponsored meeting today at 2 p.m. in the SUB party room.
Only if enough students turn up will the board
seriously consider moving its meeting to the party
room so that everyone can hear what goes on. And,
more importantly, if the board meeting is moved, more
students will have a chance to tell the board members
what their concerns are, rather than the somewhat
questionable mouthpiece of the Alma Mater Society
that "the system of colleges and institutes, including
the Open Learning Institute, provides a variety of
educational opportunities including a liberal arts college level program ..."
Stewart has left a lot of room for reading between
the lines, and the message is obvious: increase
"marketable" training at the expense of "irrelevant"
Whether the universities go along with these suggestions, orders or whatever the current euphemism is
for them over at the ministry, is not at question. They
will obey, because they are being forced to with the
biggest leverage of all — money. This letter perhaps is
the strongest intimation to date that the provincial
government, through the ministry, is taking the kid
gloves off its "hands-off" policy.
The implication is that the government is trying to
turn the university system in B.C. into a mega-
vocational institute.
Yes, there are studies showing an increased need
for engineers, doctors and MBA's in this province. We
are becoming increasingly familiar with them as the
government hauls them out to prove why the
engineering faculty must be doubled, why that faculty
should be reduced from a five to a four year program,
why an acute care hospital must be built at UBC instead of Richmond, and so on.
The board of governors is not the villain in this
melodrama. An ineffectual character, perhaps, but not
the instigator of funding shortages and course cuts.
Nor is the ministry of universities, science and communications the villain. It could be thought of as the
Igor to the Socred government's Dr. Frankenstein.
No, the villain, if you haven't guessed by now, is the
Socred government which prides itself on a pay-as-
you-go, no-deficit policy which is quickly strangling
the university system in B.C.
Sometimes the temptation to kill the messenger
bearing bad news is overwhelming, especially when
the messenger is overbearing and authoritarian. But
the only way we can solve the orders and funding
shortages coming from the Social Credit government
is to vote them out, since attempts to change their
way of thinking are fruitless.
In the meantime, it might not hurt to maim the
messenger. At this stage, we should try anything
once. Maybe it will get results.
Brief 'laughable'
I find it very amusing that our beloved external affairs officer thinks
he represents the UBC student
body. To quote his logic presented
at the beginning of his report on Established Programs Financing, Hollis asserts that as "students are
elected to sit on student council. . .
the views of the Alma Mater Society
reflect those of the 25,000 students
it represents."
This statement is laughable, as
Mr. Hollis, being in science and
thus having a knowledge of math,
ought to realize. It is a well-known
fact that the voter turnout at UBC
is usually slightly over 10 per cent.
This means that roughly 2,500 students voted last year. Clearly Mr.
Hollis did not receive every vote.
Indeed, he got less than 1,200 votes.
Therefore, it is absurd for him to
claim that he represents all the students at UBC.
Rather his brief represents his
view, and probably council's view
(as they are much too apathetic to
be concerned), but certainly not
much else. Mr. Hollis' views assuredly do not reflect mine, nor any
of the people I have talked to. Perhaps this is a moot point, but I rather doubt it. In fact I doubt Mr.
Hollis' views represent more than a
small minority of people at UBC.
One last word of advice for Mr.
Hollis: if you want to write briefs to
the government, it might be a good
idea to learn how to write somewhat
better. Paragraphs are not usually
composed of one short sentence
and one run-on sentence.

Truce to word war
October 6, 1981
Published Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays throughout the university year by
the Alma Mater Society of the University of B.C. editorial opinions are those of
the staff and not of the AMS or the university administration. Member, Canadian University Press. The Ubyssey's editorial office is in room 241k of the Student Union Building. Editorial departments, 228-2301; Advertising, 228-3977.
"Well, who's going to run in the Arts '20 relay?" asked Ian Timberlake. Craig Yuill and Craig Brooks were quick to decline. Tom Hawthorn was about to do the
same, when Nancy Campbell and Tom Hawthorn jumped on Glen Sanford who was staring at Julie Wheelwright, Arnold Hedstrom and Brian Jones committing unconventional acts with the all mighty constitution. Miriam Sobrino was trying to grasp the significance of it all when Chris Wong came in with the news
that all premeditating kidnappers would have to answer to him. It was then that Mary Price fainted. Carl Lum saw his opportunity and left in the middle of the
ruckus muttering something about the men's field lacrosse team. Kevin McGee and Scott McDonald were all excited about the possibility of fame, and Pat
MacLeod shut them up with a powerful blow in the unmentionables. "Well," surrendered Sylvia, "I guess that leaves me to show them our physical competency."

filmsoc upset. But Eric solid
Therefore, I thought, this was
just brilliant manoeuvre by Eric,
renowned wielder of pen, to prompt
filmsoc to get involved in war of
words,  add zest,  save  reporter's

Eric too overworked, underappreciated. Ubyssey makes typos,

'Unborn babies can't control their own lives'
In the Sept. 22 issue of The
Ubyssey two letters were published,
one by Stephen Parker and one by
myself, Brian Farkes. Parker's letter was mainly concerned with what
he felt was biased journalism on the
part of the Ubyssey regarding a very
large article supporting the pro-
choice movement without anything
detailing the opinion of the pro-life
movement. My letter presented my
reasons why I think abortion kills
human beings.
In response, a letter appeared in
the next Ubyssey written by "Name
withheld" which I consider, at least
in part, insulting to men in general.
The letter says, "I find it most con-
Pity for
As one of the two male students
to whom her remarks were initially
addressed, I should like to correct
certain misconceptions (perhaps
"miscomprehensions" might be a
better word in the circumstances)
expressed by the "26-year-old female" whose letter about abortion
was published in your Sept. 24 issue.
Firstly, I should like to express
pity that this obviously bitter young
woman would appear to have attracted to herself over the last 10
years a succession of males whose
poor, standards of moral behavior
she found it possible to accept. It is
apparent from her letter that she
judges all male UBC students to be
promiscuous, selfish and irresponsible as, one must assume at least
some of her previous lovers must
have been. For her information,
there are many male students at
UBC (including myself) whose objective is education, not fornication, but she might be less likely to
meet such types while she tends bar.
She advances the thought that
Pro-Lifers should make life easier,
socially and financially, for (presumably single) pregnant women.
While it seems a little strange to me
that such women look for support
from those least responsible for
their condition (surely their first
target should be the males responsible and/or their families?), I am
happy to say that many Pro-Lifers
(including my family) do give help
through their support of Birthright.
Birthright is a volunteer organization which provides positive assistance and counselling to girls who do
not wish to abort the young life they
have conceived in love. Unlike the
proponents of abortion (Status of
Women, Family Planning, etc.)
who are heavily subsidized out of
the public purse). Birthright exists
on donations received from private
individuals and the dedicated services of unpaid volunteers.
The young woman castigates
Pro-Lifers for not advocating birth
control devices for "all ages" (are
13 and 14 year olds really ready?!)
and then states that Pro-Lifers seem
to be "anti-intercourse." Most Pro-
Lifers I know either come from or
have families of three or four children or more but produced such
families in happy and stable marriages. I'm not "anti-intercourse,"
far from it. However, I do feel it is
something that should not be made
light of. (Think of it this way: intercourse is like fire ... a very necessary and important thing. But playing with matches is dangerous, and
some day you could get burned).
In conclusion, I do not disagree
with the young woman's argument
that the male partner is as responsible for an unwanted pregnancy as
fusing that Stephen Parker and
Brian Farkes feel their opinions on
abortion are valid . . . why do men
figure they have a right to say what
is to happen in abortion . . .?" She
also says in effect that the only time
a man's opinion on abortion are
valid is if he gets a woman pregnant.
If that kind of reasoning held
true then these following statements
should sound reasonable as well: a
woman's opinions on violence in
sports are not valid unless she has
been punched by a hockey player at
a game; or, no person's views on
slavery are valid unless he or she has
been a slave. Stupid, huh?
(1 also resent her remarks about
my alleged "summer flings." If 1
said the same about her there
would have been letters galore calling me a sexist writer of innuendo.
But since "Name withheld" is a
female and I'm a male, the statement was disregarded by those who
otherwise would have written those
letters. Reverse sexism is still sexism.
She also denounces men for not
asking their partners if they use
birth control, but the same applies
to the women who don't want to get
pregnant yet don't take it upon
themselves to use contraceptives,
and who don't ask their men to use
something. Both men a.nd women
are equally responsible in this

Province of British Columbia
Dr. W. C. Gibson, Chairman
Universities Council of B.C.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia
V5Z 1K1
Dear Dr. Gibson:
In order to permit the government to have a clearer
view of the medium term requirements of the university system, the universities and the Universities
Council of B.C. are being asked to prepare plans
looking some five years into the future. It is legitimate for the universities and the Universities Council
to ask of the government what is likely to be the financial context in which they will be working in order
that the planning be realistic.
I should tell you that projections from the ministry
of finance, which are much more sophisticated than
heretofore and have proved comparatively reliable
during the last year, indicate a very difficult position
for the government during the next few years. While
I will continue to press the universities' case and am
confident that they will not be devastated by any reduction in funding, the universities will have to share
the general tightening which will occur in the government's expenditures. For the next several years I anticipate that increases in government grants in support of universities will not exceed increases in the
cost of living. I recognize that this may create difficulties for the universities who have become accustomed to more substantial Ufts. In particular, the
concentration of expenditures in salaries and the way
in which the demographic distribution and the university salary structure combine to increase the expenditures on faculty remuneration will not be easy
to accommodate. Nevertheless the problem will have
to be faced.
Despite this tight situation, it will continue to be
necessary that the universities make substantial ad
justments in the programs they are providing, in
order to meet the evolving needs Of society. For example, the medical teaching expansion must go
ahead to completion. There must be an increase in
the number of engineers graduated from the universities, provided that enough suitably qualified students wish to take engineering. It will probably be
necessary to continue expansion of the offerings in
business administration. Undoubtedly there will be
These increases will have to be compensated —
probably overcompensated — by decrease; in lower
priority areas. It may, for example, be necessary to
eliminate certain programs altogether from one or
two universities in order that they can be concentrated to the point of viability. It may even be necessary
to take some action with respect to entrance requirements which could conceivably reduce the total number of university students in the province.
In face of these difficulties the universities must
strive to maintain and improve quality, which must
not be sacrificed for the sake of maintaining or increasing numbers in areas where the demands of society are not particularly high. The ministry does not
regard the total number of university students, or the
number of degrees granted per year, as a figure of
merit for our universities or as a measure of their
value to our province. It is better to have a smaller
number of better qualified and respected graduates
than a larger number with more dubious qualifications. The system of colleges and institutes, including
the Open Learning Institute, provides a variety of educational opportunities, including a liberal arts college level program, and is available to students of all
ages, and in all geographical areas of the province.
There is a particular aspect to the question of quality to which 1 would like to draw your attention. For
years universities in North America have been postponing the re-equipping of some facilities and allowing the deterioration of others, in the expectation
that what they perceived as financial stringencies
were temporary, and that more expansive times
would come. I believe it is important to point out to
the universities that there is no foreseeable prospect
of more expansive times in this sense. Indeed 1981/82
should be regarded by our universities as a comparatively favorable year, offering an opportunity to
renovate and upgrade equipment, which may not recur for some years.
I know that this situation will provide a difficult
challenge for both the universities and the Universities Council. However I hope that it will be attacked
with will and imagination.
Robert W  Stewart

There was a response in The
Ubyssey on Sept. 25 by Susan Kennedy who says the abortion issue is
"a conflict of beliefs about what it
is that gives our society . . . denied
to other forms of life (sic)." Kennedy is right in this statement. This
is the key issue, but while she says
the fetus is not human I contend
that it is because the fetus has the
same basic characteristics which
society otherwise uses to determine
whether something is a live human
being or not — human parents, a
beating heart, and a brain with
some kind of brain activity.
Everyone has basic rights, we all
have the right to swing our fists if
we want to, but that right ends
where someone else's nose begins.
We all have the right to control our
own reproductive life, but, like the
freedom to swing a fist, that right
ends when it interferes with the
rights of someone else — in this
case the right of a young human being to live.
Getting back to "Name
withheld," she said she had an
abortion last year and fully realized
the state of the fetus when it died.
She referred to the fetus as a
"child," but decided to get rid of
her child when she found it would
get in the way of a part time job,
her studies, she would be embarrassed to face her parents, and she
wouldn't get as many dates as she
used to.
These situations aren't things
anyone wants, but is killing someone — whether it be your
parents, boy or girlfriend, spouse,
or unborn baby — in order to keep
a job or to stay in school right? Is it
right to kill to avoid embarrassment? To get a date?
I realize life is often unfair to
women who are pregnant, but — I
say this to both men and women —
is it also fair for a young human being to be disposed of like so much
garbage because two people don't
want to take the responsibility for
their own actions?
Men and women can control
their own lives, unborn babies

the female, and he should therefore
accept that responsibility. However, I fail to see the logic behind attacking the Pro-Life philosophy as
a means of avenging her bitterness
towards irresponsible males.
After all, having an abortion (or
destroying the only innocent player
in the affair) serves to release the
male from any amount of responsibility or sense of guilt. Meanwhile,
the female experiences shame, depression, bitterness, etc., and an
unborn child is denied the right to
life. Certainly pregnancy is a shared
responsibility. But it also constitutes the beginning of life, a responsibility not to be tossed from
one partner to the other.

Fulker wants to cut and slash
This letter is intended to let you,
the reader, know why I am a candidate for AMS vice president.
Firstly, I have been a member of
several clubs here at UBC over the
past four years, and I am disgusted
with the treatment which the various clubs are subjected to by the
AMS. Do you have any idea how
much bureaucracy, how many
forms, and how many interviews
one has to go through just to book
a room in SUB?
Secondly, I have often wondered,
given the above, just what all those
secretaries, etc., upstairs in SUB are
supposed to be doing. We pay
them, but if I should propose getting rid of some of them, you'll instantly hear a chorus of "who'll do
their jobs?" If their job is to run the
aforementioned bureaucracy, we
don't even need their jobs.
Thirdly, I would like to abolish
SAC (the student administrative
commission). I feel that it is a long-
winded, nonarbitrary, ineffectual
way of running SUB. Why can't
one person do it? . . . it's not that
much work.
In short, I would cut and slash if
elected. Ideally, if the AMS remains
its present self, I think membership
should be entirely voluntary. Let's
use that money more wisely, and
let's decentralize its use. I want to
see that money used for purposes
that everyone can benefit from, not
just to run a bureaucratic mess.
Let's use our $39 to LOWER beer
prices, enlarge The Ubyssey and
CITR, and improve the SUB games
room with better foosball tables
and lower pool prices, etc.
Above all, I do not intend to sink
into a vice presidential chair. I'm
not out to change the AMS — I just
want to turn it upside down.

'Tuum Est' to save our university
The time has come for action.
For the past few years UBC has faced severe funding shortages that
have caused a drastic increase in tuition fees and a drop in the quality
of education. This year will be
much worse than previous years,
and the situation in the future will
continue to worsen unless action is
taken to reverse the cutback trend.
In 80/81; UBC received funding
for general operating expenses from
two major sources: the provincial
government ($143 million) and student fees ($18 million). These
sources have not been able to match
the needs of the university for two

rather than a right of individuals
and therefore individuals should
pay for that privilege. The federal

Liberals believe they are not given
enough recognition for their contribution to provincial education
and are considering phasing out
these contributions. Justice minister
Jean Chretien wants federal funds
to the provinces cut by $11 billion
by 1987, with higher education
bearing the brunt.
These  are  the   facts.   Increased
more than a possible hiring freeze,
trimming some frills and a request
to the Universities Council of B.C.
that he knows will be refused
because McGeer has already said,
"there is no more money." Surely,
we should expect more concrete action from the president of this institution, the leader of our
academic community.
Board members seem to be looking towards Kenny for direction
rather than taking the initiative
themselves. They were the ones who
presented Kenny's request to the
UCBC and that is all they have
done. Come November they will be
forced to deal with the situation.
This   will   require   some   original
senate seemed much more concerned with griping than with dealing
with the situation.
Finally, what are students doing
about it? Students will really pay
the price in the end. Student council, under the leadership of Alma
Mater Society president Marlea
Haugen, should be representing
students in this severe situation.
Your student council's position can
be summed up from one quote
delivered by Haugen to the first
year's students during orientation
week: "We will be looking for your
support for an increase in tuition
fees or your response as to how to
keep tuition fees at a reasonable

assistants will further aggravate the

emphasizing spending on higher
education.   The    B.C.    Socreds

reality. It can only add up to one
thing: a lesser quality institution
that costs more.
In such a serious state of affairs
one would expect that action is being taken •> solve the situation.
There are several areas where action
should be occuring but is not: administration president Doug Kenny,
the board of governors, the university senate and the student council.
Kenny has made a lot of noise
with his statements and pronouncements. Yet, if you add up all
his words, they amount to nothing
thought on their part, something
that seems to be lacking at the moment.
Senate met last week and
heard Kenny's proposal for nonaction. After some convoluted
debate about why the government
was spending money to build a
highway to UBC rather than providing UBC more operating money,
Kenny abruptly cut off debate and
moved onto the next order of
business. Perhaps if he had let the
senate discuss the situation some
concrete recommendations for action would have been made. Still,
Does this represent your views on
the situation?
The council's treatment of its
student access committee, in which
the committee's ability to act has
been negated, is another example of
its convoluted, contradictory and
confused approach to representing
students on this crucial issue.
There you have it. The situation
continues to get worse and nobody,
not even the leadership of this institution, proposes to do anything
about it.
I suggest the students of this
university give Haugen, Kenny and
the rest of the campus nonleaders
their "response." In the past
students have risen to the occasion
when faced with a challenge to their
education. Now the challenge
presents itself again and students
must act.
They should form an organization that is independent of institutional constraints and is free to act
on behalf of the campus community. The leaders of the organization
should gather information, identify
the key issues and plan a strategy
for action. The strategy should have
several goals with an overall objective of reversing the trend in cutbacks to higher education.
Internally, the goals should be to
raise the awareness of the campus
community on the plight of the
university to obtain support for the
organization's efforts and to
catalyze the community into dealing
with the situation.
Externally, the goals should be to
sell the^public of our province on
the benefits of higher education and
to mobilize public opinion towards
putting pressure on the provincial
government to support higher
The internal goal can be accomplished through many different
• A petition drive;
• A referendum on a key issue;
• A campus teach-in (peaceful
The external goal can be accomplished through sponsoring
public events, informing the public,
and involving the public in the
university's plight. Concrete examples of action include:
• A Great Trek; this spring will
mark the 60th anniversary of the
first Trek, the situation is just as
serious and the timing is right.
• Letters to the editor in the Vancouver media, letters to alumni,
letters to the parents of UBC

Commerce lacks originality say engineers
Dawn broke on Monday to find
that a band of commerce students
had somewhat altered the beauty of
the engineers' cairn and beloved
cheese factory by attacking them
with blue paint. The cairn had blue
streaks on it (we can only presume
that no one snowed commerce how
to change an 'E' to a 'C') and all the
windows in the cheese factory had
blue dollar signs on them.
Just so there would be no mistake
as to who the culprits were they
blemished the sidewalk in front of
the cheese factory with the slogan
"Commerce '81-'82." This really
isn't any big deal. Our cairn was restored to its majestic self within
hours and the cheese factory has
survived worse.
Why this letter then? Well, we
were just astonished that with five
years of education and lots of spare
time during the week, commerce
couldn't come up with a prank (we
use this term loosely) which was a
little less redundant. You guys are
completely lacking in originality.
Painting the engineering cairn was
funny the first time ... 10 years
The fact that you used water soluble paint is an indication of a lack
of forethought on your part. We
don't expect you to pull off a high
class prank such as the car on the
clock tower, but do you think that
by Friday you could figure out how
to get a piggy bank on top of the
book store?
This accusation doesn't only apply to commerce. Every week some
group of people 'thinks' of changing the appearance of our cairn and
it's getting pretty boring. Are the
engineers the only faculty on campus with any originality and spirit?
The only conclusion one can
draw from this is that the engineers
seemingly have the capacity to think
for themselves, whereas others (i.e.
commerce students) have a tendency to regurgitate old ideas to the
point of monotony.
In case you are wondering, we do
forgive you, because when your majors are our electives we can see
where you've gone wrong!

I became interested in any means of
lightening my work load, and happened upon the study of mnemmonics. This study concerns the

to me that many students would
benefit from a book on the subject.
I would be grateful, therefore, if

mnemmonic.   By   this   I   mean   a

known to all students of music, viz:

of the treble clef. Students of
geology will recognize the mnemmonic for the Moh's scale of the

device to enable geologists to
remember the relative hardness of
minerals,   which   are   as   follows:

Biles takes soccer 'Birds to top
The UBC soccer team has returned from a two game road trip to the
prairies in first place in the Canada
West Soccer league.
The 'Birds defeated the University of Saskatchewan Huskies 2-1 on
Friday and on Saturday UBC
defeated the University of Calgary
Dinosaurs 3-1.
The two wins push UBC's record
to 3-0 which is three points ahead of
its nearest rivals.
The win over Calgary was
especially important for several
reasons, one being that UBC has
not beaten the Dinosaurs in two
More importantly it eliminates a
possible rerun of last year when
UBC lost out the league title to
Calgary even though they had the
same points. Calgary was awarded
first place because they took three
out of four points from the 'Birds.
Left winger Bruce Biles was the
leading UBC player extracting
revenge from Calgary. Biles scored
two goals and set up the other.
The goal scorers in the Saskatchewan game were Dave Fales and
Jonathon Pirie.
Biles opened the scoring in
Calgary when he cut in from his
wing and unleashed a low drive. He
added another in the second half
when he headed home a floating
UBC's third goal came when
Biles sent Gordon Siddon in alone
on the Calgary keeper. Siddon hit a
low shot into the right corner.
'Bird coach Joe Johnson was
pleased with his team's output but
felt there should have been more
goals. He said "the attack is there,
we just have to start finishing better."
Examples of the poor finishing
Johnson discussed were Siddon
shooting at the keeper on another
breakaway and Biles pushing a
open goal header over the bar.
Calgary's goal came on a cross
ball in which most of UBC's
defenders chose to watch. A
Calgary forward then had the simple task of heading the ball into an
open corner.
Calgary had several more good
scoring chances. The closest the
Dinosaurs came to adding another
goal was when they bounced a shot
off the post and when another
skimmed of the bar.
While the Calgary game was free
wheeling with both teams enjoying
equal opportunities, the game in
Saskatoon was dull with UBC taking the majority of the play to the
Johnson said the lack of scoring
touch was even more evident
against Saskatchewan. He added
"the lads may have been looking
ahead to Calgary because they did
not have their minds on the task at
The 'Bird's first goal was a gift
from the Saskatchewan goalkeeper.
UBC midfielder Dave Fales hit a

UBC football team drops
exhibition game in states
The UBC football team came up
with its worst performance of the
year last Saturday when it travelled
to Cheney, Wash.
The only good thing about losing
to the Eastern Washington University Eagles is that it was a non-conference game and does not affect
the Western Intercollegiate Football
league standings.
With team leading rusher Glen
Steele limited to spot duty with a rib
injury, UBC's running game
ground to a halt. The 'Birds only
managed to rush for 75 yards on 43
Forty of those were by fullback
Peter Leclaire. He scored UBC's
only points late in the second quarter with a two-yard run. It made the
half time score 16-6. UBC barely
crossed midfield in the second half.
The part of UBC's game that
'Bird coach Frank Smith, was most
upset with was the special teams. A
short UBC punt led to an Eagles
field goal, and a long return off a
'Bird punt set up a EWU major.
Smith said the special teams lacked any intensity. The special teams'
other major gaffe was the convert
they missed on Leclaire's
UBC's starting quarterback, Jay
Gard, was 11 for 20 while his late
game replacement Sheldon Petri
was 3 for 4. Gard threw three interceptions and Petri threw one. UBC
also lost one fumble.
Smith said EWU was a strong
football team. The Eagles were also
the biggest team that UBC has faced this year, he added.
Smith said he did not think the
switch to American rules affected
his players.
UBC is currently tied for first
place in the WIFL with the University of Alberta, both with 3-1
UBC's next game is a league contest at home against the University
of Saskatchewan on Saturday, Oct.
10 at 2 p.m.
UBC's only season loss was the
year's first game to Saskatchewan.
Ruggers tie and lose
The UBC men's rugby teams ran
into the Ex-Brits Saturday at Clinton Park in Vancouver Rugby
Union league play and came out
with some middling results.
The first team dropped its match
15-18 while the second and third
teams both drew 0-0 and 3-3 respectively.
According to 'Bird coach Donn
Spence the first team played well
but did not get the breaks. He said
it was a rough game and that most
of the Ex-Brits points came from
penalty kicks.
UBC got tries from John Mc-
Culloch and captain Robin Russell.
Both tries were converted by Peter
McLean who also added a penalty.
Spence said that conditions of the
field hampered UBC somewhat.
The field was heavy and slow which
took away some of UBC's speed advantage.
Spence also changed several
players. He said that he wanted to
give several players an opportunity
to prove themselves. He added
because of UBC's tour of Ireland at
the beginning of the school year,
some new players did not get a
chance to try out for the first team,
he added. Spence also expects to
make several more changes.
UBC will be competing in the Abbotsford tournament this coming
weekend. This is the-fifth year of
the tournament. UBC won it for the
first three years but lost in the final
last year by one point.
Spence said he expects to take
some second and third team players
to the tournament but he does not
know how many. The provincial
team is playing the same weekend
and Spence does not know how
many of his players will be picked
for that team.
The one player who will be picked is Doug Tait, UBC's scrum-half,
who is just returning from a tour of
Argentina with the Canadian national team.

THE UBC women's field hockey team, they like being called the Thunderettes, captured the Early 'Bird Tournament on the weekend by defeating the Vancouver Meralomas 3-0. The Ubyssey considers the field hockey squad
the best team on campus and it should get more publicity. This opinion has nothing to do with a certain letter we
received last week. We just think the team is a great group of skillful, dedicated athletes. We think the coach is
great too, not a bad writer eithtr.
Women win Early Bird tourney
The UBC women's field hockey
team defeated its main western
Canada rivals on the weekend en
route to winning the second annual
UBC Early Bird Invitational tournament.
The Thunderettes downed the
University of Victoria Vikettes 2-1
in a semi-final of the tournament.
The last time these two teams met
was in the final of the opening
Canada West tournament in Saskatoon where they fought to a hard
1-1 draw.
The Sunday game was closely
matched with an even amount of
play in both ends. UVic opened the
scoring with a goal early in the second half. UBC began to press and
near the end of the game the
domination paid off with goals by
Ann Crofts and Terri Drain. The
Vikettes eventually placed third in
the tournament.
UBC then won the tournament
by defeating the Vancouver
Meraloma 3-0 in the final. UBC had
previously defeated the Meralomas
on Saturday in a pre-playoff
schedule that included wins over
North Vancouver and the Burnaby
Mohawks. The Meralomas reached
the final by defeating Simon Fraser
The UBC junior varsity team also
competed in the tournament and
placed a disappointing eighth. The
junior team was placed in the same
side of the draw as powerhouses
UVic and SFU.
Goalkeeper Sally Ticke, who was
later injured and out of the Sunday
games, played a major part in the
junior varsity's only win, an upset
over   SFU.   Without   Thicke   the
junior varisity lost to UVic 2-0 ana
to Vancouver Ramblers by a penalty stroke.
Final rankings of the tournament: UBC, Meralomas, UVic,
SFU, Ramblers, North Van, and
UBC junior varsity.

The two runners rounded the
final turn. They picked up the pace,
they increased it again. The lead
runner, because of the crowd's
deafening roar, could not hear the
pounding strides of the runner directly behind him. He took a quick
look over his left shoulder, but before he could straighten out The
Ubyssey anchor had winged by on
the right to victory in the Arts '20
The Ubyssey team was then given
the Arts '20 trophy and a large cheque from Nestor Korchinsky.

training for this all summer. Really,
we would not lie to you.

team dropped by our news office to

that eight miles is eight miles. She
asked us not to challenge her team
in the race because she was afraid
that if we beat them too badly it
might shatter their confidence.

Loan moan
made lots of money during the summer, received a large financial contribution from your parents for
education, and plan to complete a
full course load, then there is good
news for you: you are eligible for
the maximum remission on your
student loan.
This is what students at the
University of Alberta found this fall
when applying for students loans
from the university's Students'
Finance Board (SFB).
Lisa Walter, Student Council vice
president, cited SFB's policies on
the age of independence and parental contributions as posing the most
problems for this year's legion of
loan applicants.
'If your parents don't give you
enough, then they (SFB) are not going to give you enough," said
"It's as though you're being
punished for your parents' not giving," she said.
Under the current system, parental contributions are expected if
students are not yet independent;
SFB defines independence as three
years of post-secondary education,
or three years of work experience,
or any combination of the two.
Loans and remissions are reduced
if the parental contributions do not
measure up to the board's standards.
Walter cited instances where
students have lied on their loan applications by saying that they will
receive their full parental contributions, when they would not. In this
way, students could avoid being
financially penalized by SFB.
"Unless you can document your
parents unwillingness or inability to
give financial assistance . . . they
are going to penalize you," said
She said the independence question has created additional problems. Students who are not yet independent and who come from Edmonton are not allowed a budget
for housing costs.
"As long as students live within
commuting distance to the university, they're expected to live at
home," she said.
For some students, however, this
isn't possible. One bright spot in the
student aid system is aft improvement in budget guidelines. Student
representatives met with SFB last
year and successfully brought the
budget ceilings up to more realistic
"I am convinced that the reasons
for improvement are that they
(SFB) did consult with students,"
she added.

OK College students called scabs
KELOWNA (CUP) — The vocational students union at Okanagan
College has a good rapport with
members who take advantage of
their option to collect a refund or
activity fees — they call them scabs.
Although fee refunds are legal
under a three-year-old college
policy, students who want a refund
this year have to fill out a new kind
of form; the students union fee
rebate form for scabs.
When vocational students began
taking advantage of the fee rebate
option earlier this semester, the
vocational students union decided
to revise the old refund form to include instructions such as "scab's
name" and "reasons scab is requesting refund."
The union has lost more than
$200 on rebates to date, but the
scab terminology has definitely lost
a few members, permanently.
"it's an ignorant form," said one
business office student who had requested a refund. "A lot of
students are really offended by it
and the dean of trades is quite upset
as well."
Vocational and trades training
dean Bill McLeod calls the form
"It's completely inflammatory.
The word 'scab' is used so
deliberately all over it," said
"There's something to be said for
a common policy, but there is a
policy and it hasn't changed," he
The college policy allows vocational students to apply for a maximum fee rebate of $25.50 within 30
days of payment. Academic student
fees are compulsory, and students
cannot claim a rebate from the
Creek gets plant
B.C. Hydro plans to build a coal-
fired electrical generation plant at
Hat Creek which will seriously
damage the area, a leading environmentalist charged Wednesday.
"Hat Creek may provide cheap
energy for the rest of the province,
but it will be the residents of Hat
Creek that will have the greatest
bills," Cathy Fox, director of the
Society for Pollution and Environmental Control, told 30 people
in Angus 214.
She said public awareness was the
greatest weapon in the fight against
the Hat Creek proposal. Publicity
over AMAX mine dumpings in
Alice Arm was effective in fighting
that project, and publicity could do
the same for the Hat Creek proposal, she said.
"If you keep issues in the public
eye, you stand a pretty good chance
to have these issues resolved," she
Fox also spoke on other SPEC
projects, including pesticide control
and the "rubber stamp approvals"
of governments.
"Once (a pesticide) is approved
by the federal government, does it
mean that it's good for you?" Fox
She said pesticides in
playgrounds were a particular concern to her.
She said when such a case was
discovered in Port Coquitlam,
SPEC went to houses the area to
warn of the danger, telling people
"to remember Terry Fox."
"Sometimes you got to go to
emotional appeals," Fox said.
The talk was sponsored by the
UBC environmental interest group.
Perry scoops concerts

me out and I appreciate it," he added.
Aydin made the initial contact
with Luxford, and he later approached her to set up the
showcase. "The reason I contacted
Bud Luxford was because I was told
he was reliable and well connected
with up and coming musicians,"
Aydin said. She and Luxford then
approached CITR to help organize
the showcase because the station
gives airtime toLuxford's album.
Perry said he didn't understand
why CITR, Luxford and Perryscope couldn't work together on
the showcase. He said CITR has
worked successfully with Perryscope before and can't undestand
why the radio station would not
continue with the original arrangements.
"Can Perryscope bring shows to
UBC or does Merel, queen of the
campus, have the exclusive right?"
Perry demanded.

Although students are not lining
up for rebates, candidate for union
chairperson Gregg Gies said an entire welding class stalked into union
offices last year, demanding
rebates. And this year a business office training class was "urged" to
take advantage of the policy after
class discussion had been initiated
by the instructor, said Gies.
One homemaking instructor, he
said, has been handing out rebate
forms this year, which Gies said is
"infuriating to the union."
Gies said the union's low profile
on campus may account for some
of the discontent.
On the vocational studies orientation day, union representatives failed to show up.
Gies said, "It was a complete
misunderstanding on our part. We
thought it was on the Tuesday and
then, when it wasn't, we thought it
had been cancelled. It was actually
held on a Wednesday, but we didn't
miss it deliberately."
He said some students may be affected by the union's low profile,
"even to the point of demanding
their fees back."
But while Gies recognizes the present legality of the rebate policy, he
still calls it "unfair."
"Vocational students should not
be grouped apart — the policy
should exist for all students or not
at all. People are offended by the
word 'scab', but I'm offended when
they fill out the form," he said.
The union is currently attempting
to revise the policy to eliminate the
differentiation between academic
and vocational students and make
the fees compulsory.

"I want to know why I am being
blacklisted at UBC. I think someone named Merel doesn't want
me to be there. I ask if students are
not suffering because of Merel
Aydin's own personal problems."
But Aydin says Perry is the one
who is causing the problems. The
showcase is not the first conflict
between the two.
This year Perryscope set conditions on Rough Trade's Halloween
appearance at the Armories that
would have made promotion difficult, Aydin said.
The AMS had contacted Rough
Trade's management, who agreed
to do the date subject to Perryscope
approval. But Perry would only
allow the show if; ticket prices were
equal to those charged for the
group at the Commodore, advertising appeared only on campus
without radio or newspaper promotion, and if all advertising was subject to his approval, Aydin said.
"Kids hear about bands on radio
or in paper during the drive home
or on their leisure hours," she said.
The AMs had planned to work
with perry on the Rough Trade
show but use of the Armories prohibited an outside promoter, "if we
let Norman in there we lose all our
rights," Aydin said.
Aydin is not the first to disagree
with Perry. At the University of
Calgary, programs commissioner
Jim McArthur refuses to work with
Perryscope because he says Perry is
running a business and the student
union is offering a service.
Come join the Ubyssey. You can
work long hours for no money and
go crazy trying to fill small holes in
the paper at outrageous hours.
Honestly, its really quite fun . . .

Arts '20 Winners —
Then and Now
In the spring of 1920, the Senior Arts class challenged all other classes to a relay road
race. A course was mapped and the race was run from what was the undeveloped site of
the present University, the "Point," to the temporary shacks in Fairview, beside the Vancouver General Hospital. The race was founded to reinforce the campaign to permanently
establish the University at the Point Grey site. In 1925, this became a reality.
The first "Arts '20 Relay Road Race" was run on February 19, 1920. It had seven eight-
man teams: four from Arts, two from Sciences, and one from Agriculture. The course
went from Marine Drive to Fourth Avenue; to Yew Street to Broadway; to Granville to
Twelfth Avenue; and finished at the University in front of the Arts building at Fairview.
The Arts '23 team won the first race in 37 minutes 30 seconds. The challengers. Arts '20
ran a close second. In 1925, Arts '27 set a new course record by running the 7.5 miles in 35
minutes to 29.8 seconds. A new route was designed in 1926 from Fairview to U.B.C. Arts
'27 took the race in a time of 34 minutes 48 seconds.
The "Arts '20 Relay Road Race" rapidly gained popularity throughout the next decade.
However, on March 1, 1940 the last relay road race was run. The war had taken many athletes away from the U.B.C. campus. There was little competition at this time because
everyone was concerned with the war effort. Thus, the annual race was dropped from the
Track and Field program.
In 1969, the event was revived. The Physical Education team beat six other teams to win
the seven-mile race in just over 36 minutes.
Since the race was first run in 1920, Arts teams have claimed 12 victories,
Science/Engineers 5, Aggies and Rowers 4 apiece, and Forestry held a three-year
domination of the race in the early 70s. The only fraternity to ever win was Delta Kappa
Epsilon (the Dekes) in 1974-75.
The past six runnings of the "Arts '20 Relay Road Race" have seen the Rowers and Engineers battling fo/ the honours. The Engineers triumphed last year with a decisive win of
32 minutes 17 seconds. The Judo Club was only 11 seconds behind. The J. Henderson team took third, while the Rowers, after winning four of the last five races, bowed to
fourth place. The first women's team to finish was Thunderette Volleyball at 40 minutes
11 seconds, beating out more than half of the field of 84 teams. The mixed team winner
was Medicine 1V4, with a time of 39 minutes 45 seconds.
This year's race will see an even larger number of teams vying for the title, with a record
14 different divisions to compete in. They include:
Top Men's/Women's Top Faculty/Staff
Top CoRec (4 men Er 4 women) Top Frosh (M & W)
Top Faculty (M & W) Top Independent (M & W)
Top Fraternity
Top Sorority
Top Varsity Team (M Et W)
This year also sees a special entry. The U.B.C. Track Team has challenged S.F.U. and
U.Vic Track Teams to the race. They will be competing for their own intercollegiate
trophy. Although these teams are ineligible to win the Arts '20, this will be an exciting race
to watch for.
This year's course starts at the Vancouver General Hospital and finishes at the Cairn on
Main Mall (near the Bookstore), see map.

The Arts '20 - How Do You
Forgive me for intruding upon your most
precious time but I simply must! You see
. . . we at the Intramural office have gone
into the 'Bookie' business — that is the
business of oddsmaking (no money
please!) This Thursday there will be
approximately 150 teams (not my prediction) or 1,200 participants in the Arts '20
Relay. We thought this would be a good
place to start so. . . How do you rate?
As in past year the Engineers will be a
powerhouse. Last year's winning performance was just five seconds off a record
pace. An upset will rest on Science's shoulders with Forestry and Medicine trailing
close behind.
1. Engineers (6:5)
2. Science (3:1)
Darkhorse. Medicine (6:1)
The ladies from Forestry are sure to be
strong again this year but can they win?
Well Commerce says no, as do Recreation and Phys Ed. Should be one of the
more interesting finishes.
1. Forestry (7:4)
2. Commerce (7:3)
Darkhorse. Phys Ed (3:1)
In past race the Fraternities have consistently placed four teams in the top ten. The
competition among themselves will be very
close. The Phi Delts and Dekes should be
battling for top spot, however the Beta-
sand Fijis are both capable of proving
otherwise. Sure to be the closest finish!
1. Phi Delts (4:1)
2. Dekes (5:1)
Darkhorse. Fijis (6:1)
The top Sorority position will be a repeat
performance by Kappa Kappa Gamma.
The girls from KKG need only fear their
rivals from Delta Gamma. The darkhorse
position will rest with Alpha Gamma
Delta but, barring any accidents, they
should finish as predicted.
1. Kappa Kappa Gamma (7:4)
2. Delta Gamma (7:2)
Darkhorse. Alpha Gamma Delta (10:1)
One look at the aging Arts '20 trophy and
there's no doubt who'll dominate this division. The Rowers' second team may even
be tough to beat. The Volleyball and
Field Hockey teams will be battling it out
for second place. Should be no contestl
1. Rowers (8:7)
2. Volleyball (10:1)
Darkhorse.  Field hockey (13:1)
As with the men's teams the Rowers,
Volleyball and Field Hockey teams are sure
to be top finishers. Always a tough competitor, the Volleyball team is favoured to
win. The Field hockey specialists will
challenge for top spot, while the Rower-
sand Swimmers battle for third.
1. Volleyball (7:4)
2. Field hockey (5:2)
Darkhorse. Swimming (3:1)
Other divisions will see the U.B.C. Track
team triumph over Simon Fraser and the U.
of Victoria, while the Firefighters are a
sure bet in the Faculty/ Staff division. And
on a final note: The author of this article
has since dropped out of school and is now
hiding somewhere in the Peruvian desert.
P.S. How come they call it the Arts '20
when there are no Arts teams in it?
