UBC
by Frances Foran
president David Strangway allowed himself a $48,339
raise last year.
If Strangway were on the auction block, would you pay $60 for a year
of his services?
You may as well say yes. Strangway's 1992 salary, at $243,714,
worked out to 60 bucks per student per year. Thafs more than twice the
price of a UBC "president" ten years ago.
But ifs not just Strangway who's been taking a huge chunk of UBCs
operating costs. The number of senior administrators has increased from
seven to 12 over the last ten years. And since Strangway entered office
in 1985, the average annual salary for all the presidents, vice presidents
and associate vice presidents has increased at an annual average rate of
11 per cent.
Now that the ministry of advanced education has frozen the direct
funding to universities, the administration must find other ways to
maintain the good life for UBC's top boys. A ten per cent tuition fee hike
is one.
"Student fees are the obvious other source if the government says
they are not going to increases funding,'' said a former UBC prof, who
connected the tuition hike for next year and the increases in administrators' salaries in a recent letter to students' council.
Professor emeritus Peter Harnetty said it was "unjustifiable" that
UBC has unnecessarily hired more administrators while secondary
school boards are being forced to reduce their administrative costs
through a provincial budget cut.
There are now 578 people on the UBC payroll earning more than
$79 000, the cutoff for a wage freeze the Social Credit government
imposed in '91 and the NDP lifted in '92.
Vice-president finance Bruce Gellatly said UBC abided by the wage
freeze and did not approve increases for wages above $79,000. However,
UBC's financial statements show a steady rise in senior administrators'
salaries from '86 to March '92. Strangway's '92 salary is 25 per cent
higher than the previous year's, not including his $27 000 expense
account.
The provincial cap on the university's $267 million operating grant
will likely translate into cuts from many areas at UBC next year, said
Gellatly. But ifs not likely the senior administrators will have to sell
their cottages in the near future.
"There's no overt motion for administrative cuts," said Shawn Roberts
ofthe advanced education ministry. "The message is implicit; [UBC] will
have to do more with less."
What canya buy with
one Strangway ?

March 12,1993 NEWS
Women students look to the future
by Paula Foran
It was hard to find something
to celebrate on International
Women'sDay, according to Yvonne
Brown of Vancouver's Congress of
Black Women.
Guest speakers at a gathering
outside the SUB on Monday
pointed out that although women's
roles have changed in society
during the last century, women's
rights are violated continuously—
locally and internationally.
Addressing the need for a national daycare program, UBC
student and union activist Kelly
Quinn noted that the federal government has failed to change the
daycare system to match women's
needs.
The majority of people who
live below the poverty line are
women because they can't work
while they raise their children,
Quinn said. Daycare is inaccessible and, unfortunately, at the
bottom   of   the     government's
priority list, she said.
Quinn claimed that establishing a new daycare system could
create as many as 70,000 jobs in
Canada, giving women more
choices for employment outside the
home.
At present, daycare workers
are being exploited by a government that does not realize the
importance of the service they
provide, she said. Childcare
workers are paid $14,000-20,000 a
year for work that should be paid
$30,000-40,000, Quinn added.
According to Brown, although
Canada boasts of being a progressive country, Asian women live as
slaves in Canadian homes—domestic workers who don't have full
rights under Canadian law. The
lack of a national daycare program
is directly connected to the exploitation of third world women, she
said.
Betty Baxter, NDP candidate
for Vancouver Centre, echoed
Quinn and Brown's arguments,
reminding women that the federal
government has broken promises.
She encouraged women to voice
their dissatisfaction and to get involved with the issues that concern women.
Hilda Thomas, senior UBC
English instructor and abortion
rights advocate, questioned the
stated theme for the day—survival.
It is true that women are survivors
of a society entrenched in sexism,
racism, and political oppression,
but we should never forget that
some women do not survive, she
said.
Thomas read aloud the names
of women who were recent victims
of assault and recalled the names
of the fourteen women who were
killed in the Montreal Massacre.
She added, "we must remember the names and the nameless."
The word "survival" can mean
more than "to remain alive after a
death"—it can mean "to go be
yond," Thomas said. It is not
enough for women just to survive,
we must reclaim our place in the
world, and refuse to accept our
present condition, she said.
Thomas proclaimed the importance of passing on knowledge
toyounger women. Her retirement
next fall will be seen by many as
a great loss to students and activists.
This gathering allowed
women to come together to share
in the hop* that change can be
realized through awareness.
Council shit: March 10
A motion directing the
students' society to discuss autonomy for The Uljyssey was
stonewalled after council
members called it "too controversial" to consider.
The future of The Ubyssey
must remain in the student
society's hands, said Carole
Forsythe, who switched chairs
from vice-president to coordinator of external affairs last
month.
Forsythe, 28, the most vocal opponent of the motion, said
the AMS is committed to remaining the newspaper's
publisher on the AMS' conditions. A formal divorce is out
of the question, she said.
"Either you get full autonomy without funding or
we take beck our newspaper."
However, just three
weeks ago, Forsythe told the
AMS Publications Board she
no longer eared whether The
Ubyssey continued to exist
as the students' society's
publication or not.
KILL
Tort's proposal causes concern
by Lucho van tec-ctiot
In an effort to save Tortellini's,
the AMS may end up eating away
at the business of other food outlets in the Student Union Building.
Tortellini's, which will lose an
estimated $50,000 this year, is
being converted into a restaurant
that will specialize in "fresh foods"
and made-to-order sandwiches,
according to AMS president Bill
Dobie.
If the proposed changes go
through, Tort's will enter into direct competion with The Delly and
the Subway cafeteria.
Zaher Rqjan has co-owned an d
operated The Delly food outlet in
the basement of the SUB for 18
years. The Delly specializes in
made-to-order sandwiches, snacks
and pastries.
Rajan was surprised to hear of
the proposed changes.
"That is news to us," he said.
Rajan said that made-to-order sandwiches represent 70 per
cent of The Deity's business, and
that he is concerned that Tort's
may end up cutting away at his
profits.
Dobie defended the proposed
changes as necessary to keep
Tortellini's out ofthe red.
"Tortellini's hasn't been doing
well for several years now, and ifs
time for a change," he said. "All of
our food and beverage outletsmake
money, except Tortellini's."
Dobie said that the AMS considered turning Tort's into either
a Chinese or Greek restaurant,
but that those options didn't seem
viable.
"Tortellini's used to be extremely popular on campus. But
times change, and we're responding to that."
Arts Undergraduate Society
representative Sunshine Hanan
also supports changing the format
of Tort's. "It's too bad we have to
change Tortellini's, but I am kind
of looking forward to the new format."
John Wong, a student who
said he eats at Torf s occasionally,
said he doesn't really understand
why the AMS is opting for a sandwich-style format. "Itll be redundant," he said. "There's already
the Subway and The Delly for those
things."
Another student, Nick Dolphin, said that he has only eaten at
Tort's twice this school year and
that it is time for a change. "Their
breakfasts are good but their
lunches and pastas are generally
pretty bad."
However, Dolphin said that
the AMS would better serve student interests by turning Torf s
into a convenience store.

And now for something
completely mainstream:
local 'Boyz aim high
by Victor Kan
To many, Vancouver is the
epicenter ofthe Canadian music
scene.
International acts such as
Bryan Adams and Loverboy all
got their start here. The
Playboyz may just be the next
Vancouver-based group to follow
in that tradition—but they plan
to do it on a larger scale.
INTERVIEW
The Playboyz
I recently attended a
performance where this local trio
caused the type of frenzy usually
reserved for established acts.
After the gig I asked for
their tape and was given a five-
»song demo. All the songs are
original compositions by group
members KC Austin, Matt-Kern,
and Justin Carter (with the bulk
ofthe writing by Austin).
I was expecting to hear the
typical Canadian attempt at hip-
hop/R&B pop (i.e. Cancti and the
Backbeat). But instead I heard
something along the lines of A
Jimmy Jam Flyte-Time produc-
"...he just
might be the
next Prince
(or king, for
that matter)."
tion (like Janet Jackson and
Ralph Tresvant). Their songs
groove beyond New Jack Swing
and are their hooks are memorable.
When I asked KC to talk
about their music he said, "It's
timeless, not mindless. These
songs will be covered long alter
we've done them."
KC produced and arranged
alt five tracks, and played all the
instruments on the tape. Who
knows, he just might be the next
Prince (or king, for that matter).
Songs like "I Surrender," "Shy,"
and "Julia" demonstrate smooth
transitions from pure pop to a
new jazz standard.
"U Belong 2Me 2Nite," on
the other hand, is a beautiful
ballad with crossover written all
over it.
KC's "hook-laden" songs, and
his Michael Jackson-like voice
should make the Playboyz a
leading force in the 90s.
Matt Kern and Justin Carter
compliment Austin's lead with
their harmonies.
I believe that the Playboyz
are the group that others will
pattern themselves after. And,
being very young, they would
appear to have unlimited
potential.
If I ran a record company, I'd
sign these guys in a New York
minute!
Ths Playboyz: KC Austin, Matt Kern and Justin Carter.

AN AX, Y-S IS
Talkin   'bout my generation
by Dan Loomer
It happens about every 25
years or so.
A generation coming of age
attacks the ideas and institutions
of their preceding age, and in the
process gains an identity—courtesy of corporate interest and the
mainstream media's blanket labelling methods.
Two and a half decades ago it
was flower power, a symbol ofthe
largest age group to move through
the collective consciousness of
North America, challenging the
political status quo and participating in a free love be-in.
Even though screaming radicals and freaked out hippies represented only 10-15 per cent of
America's youth circa 1970, they
have become the pervading image
of the baby-boomers' legislated
nostalgia.
Now ifs happening to today's
young people. But this time the
examination is pointed in the opposite direction. The mainline
media, a hotbed of 40-year-old
thinking, is criticizing and consolidating the so called 'emerging'
generation, and preparing it for
consumption.
Twentysometliiiigs
Ever since Time magazine invented the "twentysomethings" in
the summer of 1990, media and
corporations have attempted to
create and capitalize on an identifiable image of today's youth.
Similar articles have appeared
in Maclean's and The Atlantic,
devising titles like the "posties"
(post-boomers) and "thirteeners"
(thirteenth American generation)
to describe this arising population,
and define the nature ofthe "New
Generation Gap."
are attempting to find a similar
trend in young people today.
The younger half of this
emerging generation (aged 18-
23) has typically been described
as a carnival culture of physical
frenzy and spiritual numbness;
kids who are street smart but
academically sub-standard,
constantly in pursuit of high-
tech, guiltless fun. Their immediate elders (aged 24-29) are the
directionless slackers and wandering nomads of the temp world,
bitter about giving up aspirations of approaching the stan-
Irony is a pervasive tool of this,
or any disenchanted generation,
but it is hardly a sentiment that
promotes solidarity; only so many
people can be in on the joke. This
inherent contradiction has met
with success and failure in the attempt to define and market today's
youth.
"X"ploitation
Armed with an image of the
new generation's characteristics
and cravings, corporations have
attempted to capitalize on a continuously malleable market, ex-
shows, like Melrose Place and
The Heights, melodramas about
'The richest generation in
history has attained wealth
by burdening its successor;?
with an incalculably
stultifying debt..."
twentysomethings trying to be
thirtysomethings, are testaments to the temporary but de-

appropriation of "alternative"
culture into mainstream
media, effectively rendering
the term meaningless..."
dard of living achieved by their
parents, and suspending this reality in a deluge of sex, drugs, and
rock'n'roll.
Most of
the inspiration for the
disaffected
element of
this image
has come
from cultural critics'
Ironically, the original idea of
a generation gap was a byproduct
of responses to overarching political causes ofthe 50s and 60s, like
civil rights and Vietnam, and the
luxury of time to examine them.

desperate scouring of Douglas
Coupland's Generation X, now
commonly touted as the seminal
treatise on the twentysomething
mindset. Ironically, Coupland
satirizes this impulse to generalize through the attitudes of his
characters, who insulate themselves from the bankrupt corporate world and tawdry media with
the repetition of dark ironic gestures; amplifying triviality with
hyperbole and wallowing in indulgent self-depreciation.
ploiting youth's easy experimentation with identities and rapid response to the constant succession
of style.
MTVs progression from the
first music video station to a self-
proclaimed "Generational Network" reflects the anticipated
power of twentysomething marketing.
Dictating frequent fashion
evolution through the choice of
what constitutes this week's "new
music," already discarding "grunge
rock* in lieu ofthe return to "neo-
hippie acid punk," helps fuel addictions for information on the latest
hipster trends. Even the MTV logo
(a similar presentation has recently
been adopted by MuchMusic) is
constantly changing shape, form,
and color, marking the post-modern transition from the reliable and
identifiable symbols of corporate
giants like McDonalds or Coca-
Cola.
FOX'S deluge of youth inspired
clining popularity of attempts to
capture the imagination of youth
sentiment by presenting it in an
establishment formula. Conversely, the staying power of The
Simpsons and CBS's gamble with
The Kids in the Hall this season
confirms an appetite for twisted
subversive content that exercises
that essential gloss of irony.
Most effective has been the
appropriation of "alternative"
culture into mainstream media,
effectively rendering the term
meaningless (just peruse some
recent issues ofthe Discorder to
getthe flavor). In 1991,the nomination of HEM'S Out of Time in
the new Grammy "best alternative album" category, viewed by
many as an embarrassing example of the music industry's
anachronistic approach to new
talent, also displayed the paradox of popular producers' attempt
to capitalize on a market that
has created support by virtue of
existing outside the scope of major
labels.
Last
summer,
Lollapalooza
— Perry
Farrel's festive mix of
counter-cultural pride
and multi-
media
chaos—also
marked the mainstream appropriation of alternative music. Despite
providing a popular substitute to
conventional arena rock and a symbol of subcultural synthesis for many
participants, the festival was probably inconceivable without the promotional activities ofMuchMusic and
MTV.
However, Lollapalooza also introduced the emergence of generational representatives that are tuned
to the incoherencies of its audience,
defining the multi-faceted future of
a marketable youth culture. It only
remains to be seen what the next
elaboration will constitute.
Distinction by diversity
What has pervaded the Boomers'
consolidating critique ofyoung people
is the implicit question of any aging
idealists: why cant today's kids be
more like us?
What the accusers fail to recognize is that the chaotic disparity of
youth mirrors society's disarray and
reflects the multitude of responses
to the new generation shapingforces.
The richest generation in history
has attained wealth by burdening its
successors with an incalculably
stultifying debt, and destroying
natural resources that we will have
to spend a lifetime trying to restore.
Saying we are sceptical about future
economic and ecological prospects is
legitimate, but apathetic? Hardly.
My impression is that this generation is one of immeasurable diversity, united -perhaps in its dislike
ofthe recently adopted austerity to
which the Boomers contrast our
moral impertinence. I certainly do
not see much similarity between the
agendas of third-world-wearers and
Jason Saunderson's PC youth, or
green politics and grunge rock, and
our favorite critical tool, irony, hardly
seems condusive to group solidarity.
By pointing their fingers, the
mainstream media are implicating
themselves, exposing their own inability to maintain fleeting ideals
while destroying our diversity with a
corporate driven sound-byte appraisal.
I will remember a distinctly
varied generation; history will not.

a hiring freeze has been Imposed at UBC which will
result in the cancellation of a large number of first
and second year courses, enrollment* may be reduced, the number of sessional lecturers will shrink,
$1 million worth of serial subscriptions will be
discontinued, campus buildings are falling apart,
and both daycare and housing costs are going up.
Our representatives in Victoria recently took
nominal five per cent paycuts to show their "solidarity" with those of us who bear the weight ofthe
never-ending recession. But don't think you can get
out of this one that easily, Dave.
What UBC needs Is a new long term plan for
serious structural change. And students should be
actively involved in its design.
The current plan, to seduce corporate sponsors
into funding research that will only benefit the
corporations themselves, will kill us. Academic
freedom will soon be a contradiction in terms.
Maybe it already is.
Watch your professors closely. Do they seem
stressed out to you? Are they scrambling to publish
something in fear of being denied tenure?
Now lookat yourself. Are you going to have ajob
this summer? Will you be able to afford to go to
school next year? How are you going to study for
that exam after your six-hour shift at Starbuck's on
Sunday night?
How does Strangway expect us to pay ten per
cent higher tuition next year? Students will be
fortunate to find a summer Job that pays minimum
wage.
While we're holding our breath for long term
solutions to be put into effect. The Ubyssey would
like to propose that Strangway and his partners
take a nominal 23.6 per Cent pay cut in the coming
year (10 per cent because of the tuition hike, 13.6
per cent because of the raises they allowed themselves). Consider it an opportunity to demonstrate
your committment to what is supposed to be your
function here: serving students who want an education.

Day: the first day ofthe rest
of your environmentally
friendly life. On March 18,
instead of driving alone to
UBC, ride your bike, catch
the bus, walk, or carpool with
friends. The following is a
list of inspiring reasons to
use environmentally
friendlier forms of transportation on Alternative
Transportation Day and in
the future:
1. Air Pollution: Vehicles
produce 87 per cent of
Greater Vancouver's air
pollution, and UBC automobile commuters alone
produce enough COa to fill
BC Place stadium every
eight days.
2. Cost: Did you know it
costs you $7342 to own and
operate a car per year?
(source: BCAA 1992) In
comparison, taking the bus
for a year costs $720, and
riding abike costs much less.
A decent second-hand bike
costs around $200 and
maintenance will put you
back approximately $50 per
year.
3. Drain on World Resources: Automobiles are
exhausting the world's supply of oil and mineral ores.

Re: Thomas Hayes letter to
Prances Foran, Feb 16,1993
The Ubyssey
I write this letter in defense of Frances Foran, who
was the target of Jason
Hayes' anti-intellectual
vitriole in the Feb 16 edition
of The Ubyssey. I applaud
Foran's schematic for civil
disobedience (ie. "scamming
transit")! I find it illogical
that elementary to secondary school students should
benefit from reduced fares
when they are financially
coddled by their parents and
are generally not fiscally
responsible for their trans
portation, while typically financially independent university students are expected to pay full working
adult fares. Innumerable
surveys have reinforced that
post-secondary students
constitute one ofthe poorest
sectors of our society since
we have the financial responsibilities of adults (ie:
rent, transportation, food,
etc.), yet we have no or little
income. I think Mr. Hayes is
either in an easy program or
hasrich parents to think that
all of us a) can find a decent
part-time job with non-conflicting hours and life-sustainable wages and b) have
light enough academic
workloads that we cam afford to sacrifice the extra
hours needed to generate a
living wage (ie. 15-25 hours
a week). For him to rant
typically conservative
rhetoric without acknowledging these facts is
argumentatively irresponsible. Perhaps Ms. Foran's
intent in advising students
to scam BC Tranaitistohelp
students stay in school, by
all means necessary. Now
I'm sure that Mr. Hayes
would not hesitate to employ
the same philosophy in the
pursuit of wealth, so why
not for an eduction? Remember, Mr. Hayes, that we
are the taxpayers and future
financiers of BC Transit,
and we will be paying our
dues. However, if this prov
ince refuses to ensure that
its populace is educated,
skilled, and COMPETITIVE
in the New Worl d Order, then
there will be no B.C. Transit,
no education, no ECONOMY.
If you wish to continue reaping the benefits of a capitalist economy, I don't need to
tell you that you will have to
invest in its administrative
future.

Education- not
tolerance
I am not surprised that
Marina Gri nguz was shocked
by the poster of two naked
men which was part of the
AIDS Vancouver display for
Out Week ("Overly Indecent
Exposure," Feb. 16). It's not
often that the public is exposed to images of a man
holding another man's hand,
much less his penis. Such an
unapologetic celebration of
gay sexuality is therefore
bound to disturb some
people's sensibilities.
In other circumstances I
might not have chosen to
include such a graphic
poster in an AIDS display.
But given that we had been
invited by GLBUBC to set
up a display for Out Week, I
felt that it was not only appropriate but in fact vital to
include some explicitly
homo-erotic images. We are
constantly bombarded by
images of heterosexuality:
it is presented as the norm
on television, in movies, on
billboards and in magazi nes.
Out Week is an opportunity
to challenge those assumptions and present images
which more accurately reflect the diversity of our society.
Contrary to what Marina implies, my decision to
include the image in question was not a thoughtless
one. Many safer sex messages use erotic images to
get the point across. Many
also include the picture of a
condom. But very few posters actually incorporate a
condom into the erotic image. The combination ofthe
two serves to eroticize safer
sex with an immediacy
generally lacking in more
restrained images.
I am particularity
troubled by Marina's contention that "by diplaying
such pornography they [gays
& lesbians} are not only being different, but more importantly, losing the true
meaning of what they want
to teach—safe sex and tol
erance." First of all, what's
wrong with being different?
The gay rights movement is
a call for the celebration of
diversity. Can you only accept people who are no different from yourself? Secondly, given that the poster
in question is promoting
safer sex, Tm unclear as to
how we are losing our "true
meaning" by displaying it.
And finally, Marina, please
save your tolerance for
people who aren't proud of
who they are. Gays and lesbians are not asking for tolerance; what we want is
human rights. (For an explanation of the homophobia inherent in your liberal
notion of tolerance, please
see the article "Which side
are you on?" by Dr. Dorothy
Riddle in the February 12
issue of the Ubyssey.)
We are now entering the
second decade of the AIDS
pandemic. Many people are
still practicing unsafe sex,
people are still being infected
with HIV, and people are
still dying. In the absence of
a vaccine or cure, education
is our strongest ally. There
is still much work that needs
to be done. If we disturb a
few people's sensibilities
along the way, we may in
fact be doing them—and the
rest of us—a favor.

Emasculation: fear of the
loss of patriarchy, or of violence
by Jan* Avar.il
To everybody who has been
trying to intellectualize why its
not OK to print articles telling the
story of a woman who uses violence to get out of a situation she
doesn't want to be in. Fm amazed
(andatthe same time I guess
I should have expected it) by
the responses I have read to
this piece in The Ubyssey
letters column and also in
The Campus Times. Somehow the
whole issue ofthe article has gotten lost in these letters - it wasn't
about a woman who suddenly out
of the blue decided to attack an
innocent man — the woman in the
article was NOT having fun, she
was in a sexual situation she did
not want to be in — that's my
definition of rape. Fortunately, for
the heroine she was on the point of
making a very important breakthrough. She was beginning to
think for herself— she did not just
stuff the little voice that said "hey
do you really want to be here doing
this?" back into her subconscious
like a "good' woman.
She let the voice stay there,
she let her feelings come through
and then she acted on them —
some people call it coming to consciousness — realizing what's really going on despite years of feeling a numbing conditioning.
And let me tell you something
—WOMEN ARE ANGRY ABOUT
HOW WE'VE BEEN TREATED
ALL THESE YEARS — we are
angry about rape, we are angry
about the man who thought it was
OK to rape one of us on campus
last week, we are angry about the
tens of others who were also raped
last week who we didnt hear about,
we are angry when people demean
us with sexist jokes and angry with
anyone who finds them funny. We
are also angry when men believe
PERSPECTIVE
that it is OK to assume that we
want to have a penis thrust into
our mouths so that they can feel
good — angry that it doesn't matter immensely that we are faced
with violence — it's one of our
options and it can be a good one.
We are also angry about something we don't want to do — even
for a tiny time, even if its making
use of the fact that we have been
taught not to make a fuss because
we're women. In fact my anger
towards men goes back further and
is deeper than that... I still carry
anger from the killing of and forced
role changes imposed on millions
of women in my country by the
Christian church and it supporters, I am angry about everybody
who has ever abused me and about
a society that condones this. And
when we get in touch with the
anger—it is a deep furious rage —
and you'd better be damned sure
you're not the man who's abusing
me next time I make contact with
that rage as I realize Tm being
abused again.
Too many times in my life I
recall the situation described in
the article or others where men
Kaplan MCAT prep
doesn't spell relief
by J. Robinson
Attn: Pre-medical students
about to take the "Stanley
Kaplan MCAT" preparation
course.
The six-week Kaplan
MCATprimer costs about$745,
a fee that is NON-REFUNDABLE.
The following is what
Kaplan offers.
- You sign several legal
forms where you agree that the
Kaplan fee is non-refundable
and all Kaplan material except
for review workbooks cannot be
removed from its offices. You
need a Kaplan photo ID card to
use any of their resources.
• You get five workbooks, one for each MCAT subject: verbal reasoning/essay
writing, inorganic chemistry,
organic chemistry, physics and
biology. (The MCAT requires
only an introductory course level
understanding of the above
subjects.)
- There are 12 classroom sessions: ten for review,
two for each subject. Two
"Kaplan Style'MCATexams are
included. The "Kaplan diagnostic exam" (sometimes offered
free) is more difficult than the
actual MCAT. Students are
encouraged not to prepare be-
forehand and, as a result, low
scores lead to panic and irrational decision making—registering for a course which claims
to prepare you in as little as six
weeks. At least five hours of
studying a night are required to
keep up.
Theclassroom sessions
appealed to me when I decided
to take the course. But students
just do sample questions and go
over the answers and any review
guide will provide the same service. Many students in my class
stopped attending the sessions
after the first few because they
felt that the three hours would
be better spent studying alone.
- The Kaplan "test and
tape center" is a small, often
crowded, room where students
work on "Kaplan style" tests covering each ofthe MCAT subjects.
Each supplementary item comes
with a tape explaining each answer.
There are better and
cheaper alternatives. The key to
doing well on the MCAT is familiarizing yourself with the exam.
The main skill required is being
able to read a passage quickly
andaccurately answer questions
concerning the content. Often,
even in the science sections, the
material needed to answer the
questions are in the passages.
There are several good prep-
guideson the market; apparently
the best one is the "Flowers'
MCAT Preparation Kit,* which
offerseverything thatthe Kaplan
course does for the comparatively
low price of $61.00.
In summary, all of the
security which the Kaplan center takes great pains to protect
theirmaterial withareindicative
of Kaplan being more interested
in getting your money and maximizing their future profits, not
preparing you for the MCAT.
There are much leas expensive
and equally effective means of
getting prepared.
A regretful Kaplan graduate.
have used the sick selflessness I
was taught by society to put them
and their desires before me and
mine. Too many times I have allowed the bubbling eruption of rage
to be stoppered inside. Too many
times I have had to live through
the emotional and often
physical effects of turningmy
.anger back on myself instead
of out to those who hurt me. I
loved the article for validating the anger I feel, instead of all
the sanctimonious non-violence
stuff I heard; that its a good thing
to attack back when someone uses
violence against you. So rather
than getting all caught up in telling me just how much rage its OK
for me to feel and act on, maybe
you can let me work that one out—
after all I'm the one who's feeling it
and who takes the consequences.
And if you don't want to get your
dick bitten off by a woman once
again in touch with centuries of
anger over repression against her,
the answer is simple —just don't
make her do something she doesn't
want to do. Be really careful to
make sure she wants to be there
and that she wants to be doing that
with you. And we are allowed to
change our minds too.
Fm tempted to wonder if a few
■hard enough to be excruciatingly
painful' bites strategically placed
by women being abused are not
exactly whaf s needed to make men
more careful about checking that
what they want is OK with their
partner/date. (Total penile removal
is perhaps a little severe in most
cases — but I'm sure Fm not the
only one who can think of a few —
after all don't they blame their
hormones for their behaviour anyway?) And I wonder if the turning
around of the 'proper' passive
behaviour of a woman and the
strength it has for changing our
social reality is not really what all
the uproar is about.
The rage that is validated is a
source of real power to me. Anger
focussed back out at changing and
destroying repression is a sweet
and beautiful anger. Shared with

UBC fencers capture medals
The UBC varsity fencing
teams have seen some good times
recently, with excellent results at
several tournaments.
UBC athletes took home four
medals at the Stephen Lazar Memorial Open, hosted at UBC on
February 27 and 28.
The women's teams had the
most success by winning one silver and two bronze medals.
Monique Zetka captured the silver
medal in women's epee, losing in a
close final bout to Eugenie
Mansfield from Washington. Jane
Rea also took home a bronze medal
for UBC in epee. Desiree Fulford
notched up a bronze medal for
UBC in women's sabre.
The best result ofthe day for
UBC was the gold medal performance in men's sabre by Jason
Rusmisel, who defeated Keith Holt
of Washington in the final. Jason
Hui and Matthew Yun took sixth
and seventh places respectively.
The Lazar tournament has
always been one of the strongest
open tournaments in Western
Canada, but the level of competition was particularly high this
year. The tournament is enjoying
the prestige of having the men's
epee event designated a Canadian
elite circuit event.

women's epes final.
Several members ofthe Canadian national epee team attended
the Lazar, including Laurie Shong
of Vancouver. Shong, former Cadet World Champion and currently
ranked number one in Canada,
won the gold in men's epee by defeating Allen Frands of&wkatoon.
The UBC team has been successful at other tournaments as
well. At the Derek Tumbler Open
at UVic this past Saturday, Chris
Boone took the silver medal in
men's foil. This result was sufficient to earn Boone his Canadian
"C" ranking, making him one of
only ten ranked foilists in the
province.
This ground-breaking result
isjustone sign of a much improved
tram.
Competitions on the horizon
include the Western Canadian
Championships this weekend in
Calgary and the Provincial Championships in April.
