Championship season not over
as UBC enters Shrum Bowl
If you were thinking last week's
Vanier cup national championship game
was the most important victory for the
Thunderbird football team, think again.
The T-Birds biggest game of the '82
season comes tomorrow night at Empire
stadium, when they play the Simon
Fraser University Clansmen in the annual Shrum Bowl classic.
The game is of vital importance to
both teams.
Aside from the pride and reputation
of both teams, the winning coaching
staff also acquires a powerful bargaining
tool in recruiting the top high school
players in the province.
In the past, UBC victories in the
Shrum Bowl have no doubt lured top
players such as halfback Glenn Steele,
right-end Rob Ros, and linebacker Trent
But the big question Saturday night
will be the class of competition in the
Canadian Intercollegiate Athletic
UBC, a member of the CIAU competing in the Western Inter-collegiate
Football league, had an unblemished
11-0 record against Canadian competition this year, including the national
championship. The lone loss for the
'Birds came in an exhibition game with
the Eastern Washington State University
Simon Fraser, which plays in the National Intercollegiate Athletic Association, does not belong to any Canadian
athletic association. Consequently, the
majority of SFU's competition comes
from American schools.
As a result, the Clansmen have tried
to adopt an image of big time big
business football. Former SFU coach
Lome Davies once envisioned his football team playing in the Rose Bowl, and
expected big crowds to all sporting
events. However, it was just that, a vision. Last year the Clansmen football
team and track teams were in danger of
losing their programs due to insufficient
financial support.
Across the city, on the Point, the UBC
Thunderbirds have enjoyed a strong
football program since head coach
Frank Smith took over in 1974. Smith,
1-8 in his first year, has turned the 'Birds
into a dynasty, becoming top contenders
every year. His Shrum Bowl record is
There is now speculation that Smith
will jump to the B.C. Lions of the CFL.
Woodward, on the other hand, may lose
his head coaching job this year. As a
result, he is going to great lengths to
Three weeks ago, Woodward acquired
video tapes of various Thunderbird
home games. They were no doubt
significant when the SFU coaching staff
sat down to formulate a game plan.
While Woodward obtained the tapes
legitimately, one might term it unethical.
Woodward approached UBC's Student Broadcasting Association, which
videotaped UBC home games. The SBA,
ignorant about why Woodward wanted
the tapes, rented them out for $20.
Needless to say, there were some
distraight UBC players.
Two players, who asked to remain
unidentified, spoke out. "It's a typical
move by them (SFU). Woodward knows
he might be collecting UIC so he's getting desperate. It won't matter though."
The Thunderbirds go into the game as
favorites. Woodward joked, "We just
want to kick a field goal and hold UBC
to under 50 points." That may not be
far from the truth, as UBC has averaged
just under 40 points a game this season.
Though Saturday's Shrum Bowl is the
last season game for both schools, it
ranks as the most consequential. There
is more up for grabs than another stroke
in the win column. Pride goes on the line
for the T-Birds as they represent the best
of Canadian football, while at SFU the
entire program is at stake.
rivals to the end
Although one would think the season
ends when you win the national championship, there are still a couple of
things hanging over UBC's head.
One is the Shrum Bowl against Simon
Fraser University, what UBC coach
Frank Smith refers to as "unfinished
business in Vancouver."
The other thing up in the air at the
moment is whether Smith will move up
to coach in the CFL.
UBC, much to the chagrin of Canadian Inter-University Athletic Union,
has always considered the Shrum Bowl
just as important as the Vanier Cup.
In 1978, when UBC was last in the national final, (they lost to Queens University 16-3 and two members of this year's
team, Bernie Glier and Mark Beecroft
played in that game), Smith caused a
minor stir when he mentioned some of
his players considered the Shrum Bowl
just as important as the national championship.
Last year, CIAU officials became
irate when three UBC players stayed in
Vancouver to practise for the Shrum
Bowl instead of travelling back to
Toronto to receive their all-Canadian
awards. The CIAU was upset because
UBC treated a CIAU event as minor
compared to a game with a non-CIAU
Smith could not understand what the.
problem was.  He  said  "Winning the
Shrum  Bowl  gives  credibility  to  the
CIAU. They don't seem to understand
that back there."
The UBC players seem to agree. After
chanting "we're number one" on the
field after the final, the cheer turned to
"one more game" in the changing
room. Page 2

No lack ass music' for one man band
Nash the Slash is a Toronto-
based one-person electric band.
Nash was supposed to play with Ig-
gy Pop recently at the Commodore,
but Pop cancelled because of torn
ligaments. Nash did two shows at
the Savoy last Saturday and Friday.
The Ubyssey's Jack Tieleman spoke
with Nash Nov. 19.
Who is Nash the Slash?
Well, where do I start, it sounds
like ancient history. People don't
know who Nash is? I started in the
business about 15 years ago, I
wasn't doing Nash the Slash solo
electronics 15 years ago, but I was
doing weird things with violins and
mandolins and I started this solo
thing in '75. Then I formed FM in
'76 with Ken Hawkins, then I split
with FM and went solo again. It's
not to do with musical style, it really evolved from the whole thing
punk developed from, the whole
movement in '76 and, '77.
It helped a lot of people who were
doing different kinds of music.
They decided to hell with the
establishment. Let's do it ourselves
and a lot of promoters and club
owners followed. All these things
evolved parallel to each other. I was
doing a musical style I probably
would have still done anyways,
regardless of the approach of the industry.
I was doing a lot of artsy fartsy
things. Things like music for film
shows and paintings and things like
that, you know, I still do them. You
know I get labelled a punk, electro-
pop, you know, I hate it all. 1 don't

are that naive. It really does have a
lot to do with being our West. It

Where did you get the idea for Nash
the Slash?
It was my brainchild. The name
comes from the first movie Laurel
and Hardy did together in 1936 called Do Detective's Think. They play

Composer Veal winner'
Talent and versatility are two attributes which any composer should
be glad to have.
But when these characteristics are
combined with innovation and experimentation, the audience
becomes the real winner.
Rolf Boon showed ability and
variety in his graduating recital Sunday. The ambitious performance included everything from a bassoon
solo to two pieces for a small orchestra. The music ranged from
a light and brassy fanfare to a oppressive pipe organ arrangement
which was aptly disturbing.
On the whole, all the performances, sounded good although the
pieces involving electronic
amplification experienced technical
problems — a noticeable buzz —
and the string quartet wasn't able to
provide the snap to do justice to
Boon's compositions.
By far the most effective music
for promoting mood and atmosphere was a slow rumbling
drone entitled A Night in the Fog.
Except for dripping sky and a cold
autumn bite in the air, even without
knowing the title of the work, the
audience was placed on the beach in
a fog bank. The piece ends with a
fading fog horn.
This piece and The Raven and the
First Humans, which is about the
ancient Haida creation myth show
the influence the West Coast has
had on this UBC master of fine arts
student since coming to Vancouver
from Queen's University in
Kingston, Ont. in 1979.
Unfortunately, the bassoon solo
which used an echoe chamber to set
up a dynamic interaction between
the musician and reverberating
sounds had technical problems with
static on the public address system.
But depite the problem Heather
Chesley provided the best performance of the six Boon compositions
performed that night.
Composers doing graduating
recitals are at the mercy of performers who essentially volunteer
their time. So it was great to see enthusiastic efforts by most players.
As for Boon, he showed enough
talent to indicate he probably has a
great career ahead of him as a composer for either commercial mass
markets or the artistic world.
Recitals, which happen regularly
at the music building on campus,
deserve more support. As both
Boon and the musicians
demonstrated, UBC is producing
talented artists.
two detectives looking for this
maniac killer called Nash the Slash.
I also thought the slashing applied to
my approach of playing the violin,
throttling the instrument.
What is the crowd's response to
your shows?
Well, these club things are predictable. They are confused, with their
jaws down on the floor. There is
this delayed action. There's like a
time warp between what I am doing
on the stage and what they are doing in their brains.
What do you do when you're not
The only time I don't work is in
the summer. Summer is a lousy time
to get gigs. Last summer it was really dry. I started work on the album
in late August I guess, and I worked
on the album through August
through September and got it out
on the market and immediately
went on tour on Oct. 12. I'll be taking part of December and January
off then back on the road again.
Where did you get the idea for the
electronic one man band?
Gradual evolution, I guess. The
thing that turned me on to it was
that I was really into drum
machines from a very early time.
The first thing that turned me onto
the drum machine was Arthur
Brown's third album called
Journey. This is the same guy that
did Fire and the Crazy World of Arthur Brown. This is what turned me
on to drum machines. That was a
real turning point for me. I guess
what inspired me to get electronic
was the fact that I played violin and
mandolin and not being conventional rock instruments. I did a lot
of experimenting with those things.
I would buy special effects to apply
to violin and mandolin.
How are sales on the new album?
It's doing quite well but my stuff
doesn't sell in mass amounts off the
bat. It's not like hit albums, when
people have hit singles, and record
companies give albums about three
months to do their thing; then they
are considered dead issues. I'm my
own record company so  I don't
delete my own records and my
.records always sell consistently.
They don't sell in huge amounts,
but over a period of a year all of a
sudden it all adds up.
Who are your favorite artists?
From the past, The Who have
always been one of my favorite
bands. That's not because they are
in their big farewell situation. As a
matter of fact I don't like The Who
any more. I haven't liked The-Who
in about two years. Contemporary
bands, I think Killing Joke is one of
the best bands around today. Simple Minds I like a lot. The Cure I
What are you going to do after Nash
the Slash?
Ha ha ha, that's awful. You're
falling into the trap of the rock'n'
roll image. This something is
something the John Q. Public
should know about rock'n roll. It's
;not made up of a bunch of 19 year
old musicians who are waiting to
make their millions before they're
22 so they can buy high-rise apartments and become slum landlords.
I'm over 30 and I've been doing this
for a long time, in the music
I have no reason or intention to
like a lot. I don't like much electro-
pop stuff, I like stuff that goes to
the edge, I like things that are really
animal. A lot of bands today don't
kick ass, they're not raunch
enough. I hat the American approach to kick ass music, I mean
Journey and Foreigner and Lover-
boy and that kind of crap. There's
nothing there at all.
New album coming up soon?
Well, you mean after Normal,
it's only been out for a month.
Well, there is a new album in the
can, funny you should ask. The new
album will be out in the spring. It's
not a rock album, it's not like Normal, that's for sure. It's a combination of Rob Vandervorsts paintings
and my music.
Vandervorst did the album cover
for And You Thought You Were
Normal. The paintings are going to
be presented in a slide format, so 1
wrote musical pieces to go with the
paintings. We're doing a video of
the show. It's called Bombadiers
and I'm putting out an album called
Bombadiers with a full colour
stop as long as I am enjoying performing. The Nash the Slash
character could just as conceivably
come on stage in a wheel chair when
I'm 90. It doesn't really make any
big difference. I don't project the
Nash the Flash image as the big stud
rock star. The performance aspect
has limitless possibilities.
Are there any questions that you
don't usually get asked?
No, I think I get asked them all, it
usually goes full circle. I'm very
lucky, all the tours I've done, the
headliners have asked me personally to do these tours. Gary Numan
asked me to do this tour. I did a
tour of Europe with the Tubes and
Iggy, and I had done some work
together before this tour.
When The Who were on tour in
Toronto last time I called CPI (promo promotional agency outfit) and
asked if they had a support act for
them yet. "No," they said. "I'll do
it for nothing, seriously," I said. "I
got paid $100 to do the gig, I got to
play for like 30 minutes which
wasn't bad. The Who got paid
$300,000. They got paid 3,000 times
more money than I did."
Trojan tragedy horrifies
No matter how sincere, a grimace
of pain is inadequate to convey the
tragic mood.
The Trojan Women
By Euripides
At the Freddy Wood Theater
To play classical tragedy as a
modern theme play makes the stilted
grey dialogue of ritual tragedy seem
Director Klaus Strassman forces
the issue even more by making the
actors wear what look like World
War Two uniforms, carrying
machine guns, and finally by using
the 1937 high-school text translation
of Edith Hamilton, a translation
slanted deliberately to become more
"accessible" to the masses through
identification with the totalitarian
Nazi state.
All the precise detail of the
weapons — the catlike relaxation of
the soldiers and their instant
response to conflict, and the attempt to "humanize" the faceless
Greek characters — lead to an
unresolvable dissonance with the
classical stage.
We are not allowed to laugh,
because of the unrelenting mood of
horror. Not tragedy; horror.
"Strip!" the soldiers shout, pointing their weapons — a line not
written by Euripides, incidentally
— at the helpless, bedraggled
The brutality is reinforced by the
chorus of shrieking, shuddering
women,  and  the  nervous  music
makes laughter all but impossible
except at the most absurd moments.
To be sure, this is a very strongly
felt performance, and at times it U
But mere shrillness, mere intensity, cannot be equated with profundity. It is not enough to scare people. We have all seen Apocalypse
Now, Watkins' The War Game, and
any number of other shockers.
It is not enough to scare us again,
to send people out of the theater
muttering yet again "yeah, war is
hell all right." It is not enough to
make a classical tragedy into a war
Mere reaction is insufficient for
tragedy. Questions must in some
way be addressed: How did this
happen? What do we do now? It is
difficult to think while horrified. Page 4

Weavers bring back memories
They sang of poverty, of unions,
and of social injustice. They sang
about people not having enough
food to eat, about men and women
forced to work in menial jobs for
next-to-nothing wages, and about
helping one's neighbour in times of
need and struggle.
They were the Weavers, the
premier folk music group in the
United States during the 1940s and
'50s. But although their popularity
rarely waned, their commercial success plunged downwards during the
anti-Communism hysteria of the
Cold War.
Weavers: Wasn't That a Time
Directed by Jim Brown
Opening today at the Ridge
The dark, oppressive cloud of
fear that hovered over American
society during the tragic years of
McCarthyism seeped into the music
and entertainment industry as well.
The Weavers found themselves
without a job. Record companies,
night clubs, and concert halls that
once welcomed them with open
arms, smiles and nice contracts now
shunned them because their songs'
content and their political beliefs
were suspect, and in those days
that's all it took for someone to lose
their friends or jobs.
They were blacklisted.
But the Weavers (Pete Seeger,
Ronnie Gilbert, Fred Hellerman
and the late Lee Hays) and their
music have made a triumphant
return in Jim Brown's documentary
Wasn't That a Time.
The film is a joyful celebration of
what the Weavers stood for, of
their refusal to sell out under
tremendous pressure, and of their
love for each other and for the audiences they inspired during their
Brown's film is an almost home
movie of the Weavers in their
preparations for their 1980 reunion
concert at Carnegie Hall. Old concert footage and stills are spliced into the film, and Hays' funny and
anecdotal narrative adds color and
Also shown and interviewed are
some of the Weaver's friends and
the performers they influenced.
Peter, Paul and Mary are shown
performing a rousing rendition of If
I Had a Hammer on the old Ed
Sullivan show, and Ronnie Gilbert
and Holly Near perform a moving
version of Near's song of a Chilean
woman "lost" in that country's
coup in 1973.
And finally there is the Carnegie
Hall concert itself, played to an incredibly enthusiastic, dedicated and
energetic crowd of admirers.
Perhaps the most moving mo
ment of the entire film is their encore rendition of Goodnight Irene.
Hays, confined to a wheelchair
since he lost both legs to diabetes,
lets his throaty voice carry
throughout the hall. Three months
later, the film tells us at the end,
Hays was dead, a victim of the
disease he had been fighting for so
But the Weavers music lives on.
Wasn't That a Time is easily one of
the year's finest films and shouldn't
be missed by folk music fans, nor
by those concerned about individual freedom of speech and
ideas, and about what happens
when it is taken away.
The Weavers are four people who
fought back against those losses,
and are still an inspiration to many

Arts Club's Gin Game
impressively integrates
The Gin Game play grows upon a
viewer like moss grows upon a rotting cedar shake roof. The malignant play shoots roots into and integrates with the viewer.
The Gin Game
By D. L. Coburn
Directed by Norman Browning
At Arts Club on Seymour
At the play's beginning, Fonsia
Dorsey (Shirley Broderick) steps
onto the retirement home's porch
(the set) and meets Weller Martin
(Robert Clothier). Fonsia is crying
because she has no visitors on
visitors' day. Wilier invites her to a
gin rummy game.
Fonsia adjusts her horned-
rimmed glasses — attached to a
false-pearl chain — and wraps her
white cardigan about her. She tells
Weller there is no justice, and that
the world is lonely.
Weller, smoking a cigar and
dressed in a maroon smoking
jacket, explains he agrees but
doesn't give a shit.
Their mutual loneliness binds
them and when Fonsia wins at gin,
Weller accepts it gracefully.
Later, in a second game, Weller
wants to overcome Fonsia at gin but
Fonsia continues to win by chance.
It appears that the card's chance
keeps male Weller from dominating
female Fonsia.
The conflict created due to Fon-
sia's winning increases at a third
game, and Weller ends it by overturning the card table. They part
" enemies, unable to communicate
through the medium of cards.
Finally, they meet one last afternoon. Fonsia reveals Weller actually failed at business — like he fails
at cards. Despite her submissive appearance, Fonsia is actually a
manipulator whose son hates her,
reveals Weller.
The couple has communicated.
They sit together in the porch's love
seat, Weller covers Fonsia with his
sweater, and their hands touch.
Weller draws away and stands
up: it is time for a game of gin. The
result of that game is an irreconcilable break. They cannot meet
The theme of D. Coburn's play,
which won a 1977 Pulitzer prize, is
the interaction between males and
females. It illustrates the failure of
Weller and Fonsia to communicate
despite years of experience. The
distance between male and female
cannot be bridged.
The play's theme and subplots
are cleverly entwined. The diction is
consistently crisp and pointed. The
characters are convincing.
The sharp performances deftly
draw different shades and nuances
of action. The play smoothly juxtaposes scenes of quiet melancholy
and angry violence.
Backup band Los Popularos's
opening cry of "Good evening,
Moose Jaw" was fitting for Monday night's event at the Commodore. A crowd of 450 had come
to see the displaced antics of Billy
Idol. What they got in return was a
fashion show with loud music.
The Popularos started the show
badly by turning their usually fine-
tuned pop into a loathsome effort
of power leaning on heavy metal.
Perhaps promoting their new L.P.
has left them exhausted and overexposed.
But when Billy Idol came on
stage he didn't look tired at all. The
star was clad in an all leather get-
up, complete with bike gloves and
padding. The band, which has a
definite New York flavor even
though idol is British, broke into
Baby Talk. Here were five street-
toughs growling and sneering away,
and what do they play? Baby Talk.
They looked much too cute to ever
have dared ride the New York subway system.
Idol ran through his lively set
choosing tunes from each phase of
his career. It became obvious the
entire show comprised of watching
these peroxide prissies pose away,
with Idol's lip-curling and wayward
stare being the event's focal point.
They looked something like the
New York Dolls meeting the Bay
City Rollers. They were pretty
tough — with emphasis on pretty.
The visual part of the show as
Passion yields few fruits
When the Story of O came out
years ago, many people thought it
daring in its imagery. In retrospect,
Story of O seems nothing more than
a soft-core porn film full of soft-
focus images of simulated submission and pleasure.
The sequel to Story of O, titled
Fruits of Passion, is radically different from the original, and people
who go to see it for pornographic
content will be disappointed.
Fruits of Passion
Directed by Shuji Terayama
Playing at Towne Cinema
In this sequel, O, accompanied
by her mentor Sir Stephan (Klaus
Kinski), comes to China on the second — and final — step of her sexual journey. It is just before the
revolution, and the decadence personified by the prostitution O has to
engage in is about to be violently
wiped out.
The title, Fruits of Passion, is
meant to be ironic because the film
tries to point at the degrading and
impersonal effects of pornography.
The submission that was deemed
romantic in the original Story of O
is now shown to be cold, inhuman.
The prostitutes who live with O
are reeling under the effects of their
environment. Sir Stephan — who
guided O through her first journey
— is now a man who cannot have
sex and can only sodomize women.
While Fruits of Passion has some
interesting ideas about the effects of
pornography, director Shiyi
Terayama's alienating approach to
filmmaking is frequently a turn-off.
The surreal imagery that dominates
the prostitutes' memories doesn't
work because Terayama isn't interested in convincing his audience
about his ideas. The stark, cold approach — juxtaposed with O's
misguided, romantic utterances
about her love for Sir Stephan —
just succeed in making the film
seem ludicrous.

bouncy beats leaning on the heavy
side. This is AM radio litter for the
Monday's crowd seemed to
average in the mid-twenties. The
recorded material was of higher
quality than the stage production.
The second wasn't poor but the extra emotional impact of a live show
was missing.
Idol does have strong punk roots.
He played with Siouxsie in the
Bromley Contingent in the pre-
Pistols era. But when he moved to
New York and picked up his present
band, he left most of his roots
behind. He seems to be looking for
an audience with a wider range of
tastes. But it seemed many fans did
not appreciate his latest showing.

Boys and balls
This weekend the UBC Thunderbirds and the SFU Clansmen will engage
in the annual battle for the Shrum Bowl. The fans will drink and carouse in
the stands, while bouncy cheerleaders wave their pom-poms, flail their
arms and legs wildly, and shriek at every touchdown.
Underneath the disguise of uniforms lurk inherent militaristic and sexist
attitudes. Yes, that's right — there's no game like it.
Where else do you find macho boys separated into two camps, dressed
up in uniform and ready to kill? When else do opposing forces plan
strategies and senselessly injure each other?
Traditionally, women do not question their place on the sidelines. They
are relegated to a secondary position — that of supporting men's activities
and nurturing men's egos. As cheerleaders they assume a passive role and
are mere sex objects to be leered at and judged by men.
If football fans expressed as much interest in combating militarism and
sexism, there really would be no life like it.
Both angered and disgusted
I was both angered and disgusted
by your presentation in The
Ubyssey of the supposed Herpes
epidemic at the aquatic centre pool.
To be sure, the Herpes virus can
present a health problem and if it is
indeed present in the pool required
immediate investigation.
However, the whole tone as well
as content of your article seems
geared to alarm rather than to inform the campus population. Your
Thanx people
I would like to thank all the people who helped with the referendum
and the 8,800 people who voted.
This is by far the most successful
vote ever held on this campus, 75
per cent yes and the second highest
turnout ever.
I would especially like to thank
Dave Dale, Donna Chow, Alexis
Cherkezoff, Francis Janes, Nancy
Campbell, a few Rez Presidents, Syl
and many others. This would never
have happened if it wasn't for these
Thanks again for all your support. I think everyone will see many
major changes on the campus soon

article did not identify which
Herpes simplex virsus, I or II, was
found in the pool; Herpes I is quite
prevalent and causes the common
cold sore, while herpes II is responsible for the genital outbreak.
The current information on the
virus indicates that it is
transmissable by direct contact only
in the open lesion stage; that the is
no proven transmissability between
Herpes I and Herpes II; and that
many people harbour the virus in
the dormant stage with no outward
In addition, after raising panic on
the front page in a sensational style,
you proceed to treat the whole matter with a flippant and inappropriate attempt at humour on
page three.
How can this be taken as serious
and responsible journalism when
you hysterically raise the possibility
of contacting the Centre for Disease
Control on page one, and then refer
jokingly to Herpes the Love Bug as
low budget film material?
It is exactly this kind of emotional, nonfactual article that is
fanning the fires of misinformation
and distress about this current
health problem.

'Thank you for Herpes'
I would not wish to comment on
your sensitivity nor your intelligence in regards to your Herpes
article on Nov. 16. The manner in
which you brought up the subject
matter left much to be desired.
However, I would like to congratulate The Ubyssey for bringing
to the attention of the university
community the lack of knowledge
many students have concerning
Herpes, and other sexually
transmitted diseases (STD).
A university is, hopefully, a
forum for the debate of controversial subject matters, and also for the
aquisition of knowledge. Herpes,
and othe STD's are no less an area
in which students should desire
some knowledge in addition to our
academic concerns.
The appalling lack of knowledge
many students have on STD can
have a much more far reaching effect on their personal lives than a
poorly researched term paper, or a
failed exam.
As a volunteer for the Vancouver
Crisis Centre, and for Speakeasy,
our campus information and crisis
centre, I welcome any attempt by
the media to bring to the attention
of the public, any subject matter
which is not normally open to
public discussion.
The article in the Province
Magazine, Sunday, Nov. 14,
refered to by John Harris in his letter to The Ubyssey, is now posted
near the student health boards in
the Speakeasy area in SUB concourse, SUB 100B.
It is extremely informative, even
to someone with some knowledge
of Herpes. I urge everyone to stop
by Speakeasy and read it. Do please

Shame for backpagingBirds
Incredible, fantastic,
unbelievable, awesome and the best
are just a few of the words to
describe the UBC Thunderbird
football team's performance this
season. But where is our fan support?
Our newspaper sticks the article
about our victory at the back of the
paper. They have worked for and
deserve front page coverage for the
outstanding job they did.
They won everything!
The team blew other teams right
out of the stadium, all season. Sure
football is not the only thing to live
for but credit should be given where
it is due. And what about the
cheerleaders, their biggest fans?
No one even mentions that they
are out there game after game, rain
or shine. I would like to see all the
apathetic people get out there and
do better.
C'mon   UBC   let's   show   our
T-Birds and our cheerleaders that
we are behind them 100 percent.
See you at the Shrum Bowl.

Take fact nearly fooled me'
I almost believed it — for a
paragraph or two, until my mind
recalled from its depths an obscure
fact once memorized: Herpes
Simplex virus is transmitted only by
close body contact, such as thumb-
sucking, kissing, and sexual intercourse.
The virus does not swim in pools
waiting to lurch upon any unsuspecting swimmer. All those who went
to visit medical services last week
now know that.
But perhaps the 'obscure fact'
should have taken a little less time
to retrieve from my memory files.
Herpes Simplex is in fact a rather
common affliction of many university students. The cold sore is a
good example of that, for it too is
caused by this virus.
Okay, okay, don't become overly
horrified at the tell-tale lesion on
your lips. It does not divulge any
secerts of sex-on-the-sly, because it
was probably innocently acquired
in childhood.
That's the catch: once you get it,
you never get rid of it. The sores
heal and you may think that all is
well, but sure enough, with a little
cold weather and pre-exam stress
Annual hoax 'irresponsible'
An epidemic of "Herpes
Aqueous I." I now realize the story
in the Nov. 16 Ubyssey was crap
(not factual), but it was also a
display of irresponsible journalism.
I imagine The Ubyssey staff ran
the article with the belief that a
degree of humour existed in the
story. Or maybe Ubyssey writers
were simply bored with legitimate
news items. Or perhaps Ubyssey
staff members get on some sort of
warped trip by printing bogus news
items, knowing that people tend to
believe much of what they read and,
golly, maybe they'll actually believe
some of this bullshit. Whatever the
intent or motive, it does not justify
printing the article.
I believed the story was factual.
New terrorists
A terrorist often inflicts wounds
on innocent parties in the attempt
to defend a cause. These days I feel
The Ubyssey is a terrorist within the
journalistic system.
The paper's attitude on the
meaning of Remembrance day was
typical. You have, in your regular
style, misinterpreted and spewed-
out a defaced opinion of the value
of Remembrance day.
I am grateful to be a Canadian
and so honor the ones who died to
build Canada. Try your terrorist
style opinions on war movies if you
believe society is glorifying war and
leave our day of remembrance an
honored and special moment in its
own right.

at the UBC pool, and within
minutes a dozen people were misinformed, without even having read

I was genuinely concerned about my
health, and I don't doubt that it will
take some poor souls a lot longer
than the few hours it took me to
realize the truth, despite any
disclaimers printed in the future.
It's a pissoff, because Herpes is no
joke and university life is already
filled with enough stress and uncertainty.
I suspect The Ubyssey could be a
reliable source of news and
(harmless) entertainment if the
editor(s) exercised a little more
restraint and good judgement.

the virus will again play havoc with
your face.
Genital herpes may be considered
to be more serious. For one thing,
you may carry the virus around on
the genitals without ever knowing
it. In that case, it does wait around
to lurch on any unsuspecting victim
who happens by.
When it passes to the next person, it may again cause no problem,
or small blisters will appear right
where the virus hopped on board
(usually the genitals or wherever
else . . .). The blisters soon burst,
leaving small raw areas covered
with a grayish-yellow membrane.
These are painful! Sitting through
lectures may become a major test of
After a week or two all should be
back to normal. But once again,
have no fear, Herpes Simplex is still
here. So when you're out in the cold
and feeling stressed, be prepared
for another blister outbreak.
Problems can be more severe.
Babies born to mothers with vaginal
herpes blisters may be seriously infected, to such an extent that they
may die. As for the infected adult,
if the virus reaches the brain, death
may again be a serious complication, yes, these manifestations are
rare, but they do occur.
So if you are worried, see your
doctor. If you have no cause for
alarm and you've never seen such
blisters then don't go looking for
any — you-may find them when you
would rather not and prevention is
the only escape.

Herpes epidemic not all bad
In contrast to all the negative
hype you have no doubt received, I
would like to congratulate you on
your "Herpes epidemic" article;
for once you picked your target
right on. Something as eyecatching
as a combination of sports, sex and
danger was a great vehicle for making the points you wanted to make,
and on these points I totally
disagree with the authors of the two
letters of complaint:
• Those not patient enough to
read into the second page, or, as
seems to be the case, beyond the
first paragraph, deserve what they
get. It is this impatience that leads
to the bad habit of glancing through
the media messages, and thus permits those that control the media to
control what goes over as "news."
• Those who unquestioningly
accept everything printed in a
newspaper (or even on a piece of
paper) as the TRUTH also deserve
all the rude shocks that they get. It
is such unquestioning acceptance of
the pronouncements of media "ex-
Are you lonely, bored, too shy to look for a pen pal? Better yet,
are you concerned about events that take place on your campus, and
in your society, and just itching to vent your spleen publicly? Boy,
are you in luck. Look at this page. It's all yours.
The Ubyssey welcomes letters on almost any topic. The quickest,
most direct method for a reader to get the issue nearest and dearest to
her or his heart represented in the newspaper is to write a letter.
What is it for you? Disarmament, women's rights, the plight of the
Malaysian Mongoose? If you really care about it, write about it, and
let the world know.

lies to pass as news and hence form
the collective conscious (and unconscious) of whole nations.
• Those issues that form part of
the arsenal of reactionary causes,
however serious, deserve all the
ridicule they get. The Herpes scare
is visibly being manipulated to put a
lid on human, and especially
adolescent, sexuality; anybody who
even glances at the media should
know that Phyllis Schlafly's latest
piece of ammunition in her fight
against sexual liberation,' equality

Seminar gets quiet day
Robson Square was quiet Tuesday morning. In contrast to Monday, there were few protestors as
the downtown crowds hurried to
work or shopping stores.
Behind the locked glass doors to
the media centre a couple of security guards and a handful of
policemen dutifully admitted
delegates to the seminar on military
research and development. The
public, including the media, were
denied admittance.
On Monday, delegates had to
step over protestors who staged a
"die-in" to protest the defence industry opportunities seminar. On
Tuesday they were greeted by less
than a dozen quiet demonstrators
who stood by the doors talking to
each other and politely offering
leaflets to the arriving delegates.
Most either accepted the pamphlets quietly or ignored them entirely. But one man grew belligerent
when urged to read the alternative
"You people are getting to be a
nuisance," he shouted. "You're
prostituting our freedom."
One protestor made a brave but
ineffectual attempt at civil disobedience by sitting down and leaning
against the door. When confronted
by startled conference delegates, he
simply stated, "This is a nonviolent protest action against this
The police and security guards
managed to push the door open
from the inside just enough to allow
delegates to enter. The battle of
wills went on for a short period
before the police ignored the protestor and began admitting
delegates through another entrance
20 yards away.
A plainclothes policeman, when
asked by a protestor why the police
filmed Monday's rally, replied, "It
was a brand new unit, and it was a
perfect opportunity to experiment
with it."
Seminar co-ordinator Michael
Clark, when asked the same question, said "Well, you were filming
us. What's the difference? I have no
idea why they were filming you. I
don't know why you were filming
"They were just performing their
normal duty as they've been commissioned to do," he added.
The conference was generally a
success, said Clark. "The (U.S.)
defence department was very impressed by the response," he said.
"Certainly the companies were happy."
The seminar was basically a non-
event, said Clark, and was only
made interesting by Monday's
"Our mandate is economic
development, and the way we do
that is consistent with Canadian
policy in job creation and export
marketing," said Clark. "Whether
that is right or wrong is a matter the
public has no right in deciding."
Clark said military production is
a reality and B.C. should capitalize
on it.
"Somebody will supply the
military equipment, so we might as
well do it in B.C.," he said. "We
want to have an equal chance of
getting jobs out of that economic

behalf of Peck, who was
unavailable for comment, but added he would probably recommend a
second time that the original arbitrator reconsider UBC's ability to
Capilano college faculty and administration reached a tentative
agreement Nov. 14, just in time to
avoid a full strike set for the next
da^. t While faculty mernbers .voted.,.
to accept the agreement in principle, the vote passed with substantial
opposition, said faculty association
president Bob Cook. One of every
three members voted against the
agreement, he said.
Neither the administration nor
the faculty will reveal the contents
of the tentative agreement until
both sides ratify it.
The directorship dispute which
was the main issue in the negotiations is settled but the conflict isn't
entirely resolved. Although no new
directors will be hired before March
31, 1984, and when they are selected
the faculty will be allowed to submit
evaluations, the present three directors will be retained. The position
will be reviewed in July 1983.
Capilano college students were
instrumental in pressuring both
sides to resume talks. They sent
press releases to local media, con
tacted faculty and college board
representatives, held forums and
some even picketed with faculty
during a one day strike Nov. 9.
In Kelowna, Okanagan college
students also played an important
role in averting a strike and urging
resumption of bargaining. About
40 students staged a sleep-in at the
student services building Nov. 5.
The next day 100 students attended
a board meeting where administrators agreed to start negotiations again. In addition they sent
letters to negotiators calling for binding arbitration to reach a settlement.
Meanwhile at the B.C. Institute
of Technology, the ministry of
labor assigned a mediator to end the
dispute between the B.C. Government Employees Union and the
BCIT administration. The BCGEU
and the administration have been
Whiteout at UBC
After more than 30 years at UBC, UBC's vice president and bursar
is resigning.
William White, who has held the bursary position since 1975, will
take early retirement June 30, 1982, at the same time administration president Doug Kenny steps down.
White declined to comment on his resignation Thursday. "I am
not discussing that right now," he said, hanging up the telephone.
Simon Fraser University president George Pedersen becomes UBC
president July 1, 1983.
A certified general accountant, White has been involved in the
financial operations of the university since 1950. Under former
president John McDonald in the '60's, White was deputy president
and treasurer.

trying to negotiate a contract since
Sept. 10 but have reached an impasse over wage proposals.
The union is asking for 14 per
cent in the first year and zero to
nine in the second.
TAs to hold
strike vote
The teaching assistants union
voted Thursday to hold a strike vote
within three weeks.
Talks between the union and the
administration are stalled because
the university is not prepared to increase its 6.35 per cent wage increase offer, the steering committee
told union members.
Union president Yorgos
Papatheodorou said the current
wage offer is two per cent less than
amounts offered other campus
Other outstanding issues include
job and union security. The motion
to go to a strike vote was carried 51
votes to 17 by union members
meeting at the Graduate Student
The committee said administration told the union
negotiating team "to fish or cut
Papatheodorou said the university
would not improve its position until
the union demonstrated its strength
by the threat of strike.

ceremoniously on a homemade
drum while the others paced on the
steps of the courthouse, sometimes
on their knees. On the stairs they
had placed small hand-drawn signs
which read Love, Destruction,
Hope, and Bombs.
At noon the security guards
unlocked the doors to admit the
public. Several protestors rushed
downstairs to the seminar room
which contained about two dozen
tables surrounded by empty chairs.
The delegates, including several
UBC professors and administrators, had already vacated
the premises.
Lack of info
stops press
from its job
Canadian industrial facts are
more available in the United States
than in Canada, an Edmonton journalist said Tuesday.
"It's strange Canadian
documents are more accessible in a
foreign country than in Canada,"
Peter von Stackelberg told 25 people in IRC 3.
Von Stackelberg said the new
Canadian Freedom of Information
Act actually decreases accessibility to
Canadian industrial documents.
"Under the new act, industry can
classify documents as trade secrets
and they cannot release trade
secrets," von Stackelberg said.
This lack of information hinders
the media in reporting to the public,
he said.
Von Stackelberg specializes in
chemical, drug and pesticide industry news. He first opened the
Bio-tech corporation faked experiments story.
He said scientists are unwilling to
speak to the press. "Government
(scientists) must get used to questioning by the media."
Von Stackelberg said the public
can see the result of industrial
mistakes, but government, industry
and scientists speak dishonestly
with the public about mistakes for
political reasons.
"In Alberta the department of
the environment told me a
simultaneous outbreak of illness and
a sour gas well blowout were coincidental," von Stackelberg said.
He said science, particuarly risk
assessment and threshold limits, are
extremely political issues and
should be discussed publicly.
"I think we need much more
openness," von Stackelberg said.
He said engineers agree with
communication in principle, but
generally only want their viewpoint
Von Stackelberg said his own
reporting is accurate. "My writing
never had factual errors, but some
have disagreed with my interpretations." He added the public should
never accept the newspaper stories
without doubt.
He said that journalism schools
generally provide inadequate education on scientific issues and place
too much emphasis on politics. But
he said the quality of scientific
reporting is improving.
He added a danger exists that the
media may become biased by
owners in the future. "One of the
biggest threats (to the media) is the
purchase of newspapers by non-
newspaper corporations."
Von Stackelberg said the
newspapers coverage of the video
display terminal question may be
biased. "The newspapers have a
vested interested in the new electronics because it saves them
money," von Stackelberg said.

WINNIPEG (CUP) — Manitoba's
education minister says the province's universities can expect to remain a high priority during times of
Maureen Hemphill said education is a high priority in the New
Democratic government elected in
November 1981 — second only to
She cited last year's 14 per cent
funding increase to universities as
an example of this commitment.
She compared this with previous increases under the Conservative
government, which she said left the
universities "strangled or starved."
Those increases ranged from 1.5 to
5 per cent, except during the 1981
election year.
Hemphill said her government
would not make the kind of drastic
cutbacks being implemented in
other provinces. These include a
$12 million mid-year cut in university funding in B.C., and similar cuts
of more than $2 million in Nova
Scotia and $2 million in Newfoundland.
"We are not taking those kinds
of extreme actions," said Hemphill.
"Ours will be one of the best deals
in the country."
SUNS may
set on CFS
in Victoria
delegates from the Student Union
of Nova Scotia (SUNS) left to attend the Canadian Federation of
Students national conference two
weeks ago in Victoria they were
angry and alienated.
They're still angry and alienated.
They charge CFS did not deal
with their criticisms at its semiannual conference in Victoria Nov.
8 to 13. And now two Nova Scotia
student associations plan to hold
pull-out referenda in January.
"I hope we get out as soon as
possible," said Eric Walker, who
represented the Nova Scotia College
of Art and Design. "We have a student body who feels CFS doesn't do
Walker is also chair of SUNS, the
provincial student organization. He
said CFS wastes money on staff and
executive travel but claims it can't
afford to increase travel subsidies
for smaller institutions to attend
conferences. Walker also criticized
the delegates' refusal to donate
$500 towards legal fees for students
arrested in an occupation protesting
tuition hikes at the Universite de
Moncton in April. The CFS
treasurer argued that the donation
could not be afforded.
SUNS members held a gripe session at a provincial meeting prior to
the conference but delegates said
most of the motions they presented
to the CFS conference were
"soundly defeated."
SUNS focused much of its
discontent on the CFS executive,
the central committee. CFS
plenaries twice told the CC to hire a
translater instead of a researcher,
but this summer the CC voted to do
the opposite, arguing that research
in a higher priority.
Peter Rans, Dalhousie University
Students' Union president, labelled
the decision "undemocratic."
"It means you have to go to a
conference, work for a week, the
plenary passes a motion, and the
central committee can ignore it," he
said. A SUNS motion to condemn
the CC for its decision was
Rans said CFS was of little help
when Nova Scotia closed the Atlantic Institute of Education and
restricted student aid in August.
"Why are we paying $21,000 in
CFS fees if we are fighting our own
political battles and we can't get
needed information in time from
the CFS national office?" asked
Nova Scotia delegates were also
opposed to the conference decision
that institutions must join both CFS
and their provincial organization or
neither. Rans said some Nova
Scotia campuses want to belong to
SUNS but not CFS, and he
predicted CFS will lose members
over the issue.

party will form a new federal
government in January.

an election occurred tomorrow.
Therefore, the Tories will form the

B.C. universities model parliament
society president Tedd McNabb
said. It has no actual power,
he said.
Seats at the parliament are
awarded to the parties — the campus NDP, PC's, and Liberals — according to the percentage the parties receive in a random poll conducted by the parliamentary society
at B.C.'s three universities, said
society vice president Jeff Kuwica.
McNabb said Simon Frasr voted
predominantly NDP. The UBC
vote split between the NDP and the
PC's, but the PC's have won at
UBC two years in a row, McNabb
The Tories won the greatest
percentage of the poll vote at all
three universities, Kuwica said.
In past years, "the Liberals have
been continually decreasing in
power and the PC's subsequently
increasing in power," McNabb
The Tories will have 23 seats in
the parliament Jan. 6 to 9. The
NDP will have 19 seats, while the
grits will get 14 seats in the 57 seat
B.C. legislative chamber.
A speaker will fill the last seat.
Arts funding
must double
Canada council's funding for the
arts needs to double before theatre
companies' needs can be adequately
met, Vancouver playhouses' artistic
director said Thursday.
"Anything more (than current
funding) would be beneficial,"
Walter Learning told 10 people in
the Dorothy Somerset studio.
Learning said despite the current
recession, the Vancouver
Playhouse's audience attendance
hasn't fallen.
"The stuff actually sells. Audience attendance is up."
"Our strategy," he said, "is to
root the playhouse in the public."
Learning said audience attendance and no drop in government
funding has enabled the playhouse
and other companies to survive during financially difficult times.
"Fifty per cent of our budget is
from various government grants,
and 50 per cent is from the audience."
