Ed department facing war
VICTORIA — Deposed B.C.
education research and,
development director Stanley
Knight said Thursday that six or
seven former colleagues are
fighting a "war of attrition" with
deputy education minister Jack
Fleming and other senior civil
service officials.
Knight said in a telephone interview the war includes delayed
paychecks, misplaced expense
vouchers   and   intimations   that
workers' will be marked against in
civil service evaluations if they
talk to the press about their plight.
He said if his former colleagues
lose the war, they may join him
and a lawyer he is hiring today
informed appeals to the Civil
Service Commission.
Knight indicated his appeal —
and the war facing surviving
members of his department — is
based on a fight between workers
wanting  to' be  part  of   a   non-
heirarchical collective and
bureaucrats trying to maintain a
"line order" heirarchy throughout
the civil service.
Knight declined to name the
persons under fire by Fleming. He
said some non-researching employees of the branch have
received notice they are on six-
month probation after having
worked for the education department for several years.
"The   whole   civil   service   is

'LG advertisers drop away
A campaign by striking radio
station CKLG workers to
discourage companies from advertising on that station has been
"extremely successful," according
to union organizer Ed Mitchell.
Disc jockey Mitchell, Canadian
Union of Public Employees local
686 president, said Thursday "no
advertisers approached by the
union refused to suspend their
He said the advertisers are being
asked to suspend rather than
cancel their advertisements
because cancellation will mean an
immediate jump in  rates  when
they again sign up for ads on the
"But in letters we've sent out, we
assure them that one of the terms
of a collective agreement will be no
reprisals against advertisers who
suspend," Mitchell said in an interview.'
Thirty-three CUPE members
who work at CKLG have been on
strike since Saturday for their first
contract. The strike started after
management refused to abide by
arbitration and will continue, say
union organizers, until
management agrees to return to
the bargaining table.
Mitchell said several  major
accounts have agreed to cancel but
have asked for company names to
be withheld so they won't be
identified as supporting the
"They don't want to go on the air
because that way they're identified
as " supporting management but
they don't want their names
released so they will be identified
as siding with us," Mitchell said.
He said CKLG has about 600
advertising accounts, although all
advertisers are not on the air in the
same period of weeks.
Management representatives
could not be contacted for comment, t
vibrating right now," he said.
"There are literally hundreds of
people on probationary employment in fear or their jobs.
Knight indicated his appeal will
contain a defense of "collective"
rather than "line order"
organization within government
Knight said before he was fired
in mid-January he and 16
colleagues in the seven-months-old
branch worked as a group and
were responsible to each other
rather than a boss.
"The key issue here right now is
that civil service bureaucrats want
an administrative bureaucracy
with the person on top making
decisions," he said.
Knight said the bureaucrats,
including Fleming, think if the
boss-worker relationship is
replaced by collegiality the
government would collapse in
"confusion and anarchy."
"In effect they're saying we
can't have democratic process (in
the civil service)", he said.
A spokesman for Fleming's
office said Thursday that Fleming
was not available for comment.
Fleming has said Knight lost his
job because he failed a normal civil
service job evaluation.
Knight claims, and reiterated in
the interview Thursday, that he
was fired because senior government bureaucrats were afraid of

AUCE threatening
letter to BoG, Dailly
The Association of University
and College Employees plan to
send letters of complaint to the
board of governors and education
minister Eileen Dailly if the
university continues to ignore
union grievances.
AUC grievance committee
member Farleigh Funston said
Monday the university has put the
union in an "abominable position"
by delaying and obstructing
grievance negotiations.
"We are having so much trouble
with .the university it's
Funston said AUCE will send
letters to Dailly and the board next
week if the grievance committee
gives approval to final drafts.
The letters would demand Dailly
or the board intermediate to force
the university to negotiate more
fairly about union grievances.
The university lawyers have
used a variety of delaying tactics
to obstruct AUCE grievances,
grievance committee member
Sharon King said Thursday.fi Sh(
said the lawyers claim they will
investigate grievances and then do
not, forget to bring key papers to
meetings and purposely ignore
grievance issues.
"We are a clerical women's
union so the university refuses to
take us seriously.
"They say we don't approach
things like. the other unions on
campus but the other unions aren't
being cheated," King said.
. King said the university refused
to recognize all grievances on a list
presented by AUCE at a meeting
Feb. 3.
The basis of most of the
grievances is employee reclassification according, King

been waiting since September for
the university to move them to
their proper job classification, she

new category for secretaries who
wanted to move to a "secretary-

employees with reduced admission
costs to UBC recreational
facilities, King said.
The AUCE grievance committee
will present its grievances-to the
university for the third time
Tuesday and members said
Thursday AUCE will go to arbitration on all the issues if the
administration does not act to
resolve them by Feb. 14.
The issue of student assistant
wage parity with union workers is
now before ' the B.C. Labor
Relations Board which will decide
whether to arbitrate the matter
itself or tell the university and
AUCE to find their own arbitrator.

members had hoped for a decision
this week but chairperson Janey
Ginther said Thursday the union
has submitted its third brief but the
LRB has not made any decision.

NDP leader must be f em in ist—Brown
BROWN ... sexism
historical process.
Socialism and feminism are both movements
reacting to the capitalist system, Rosemary Brown,
NDP MLA and possible federal NDP leadership
candidate said Thursday.
Speaking to about 60 young NDP club members,
Brown said she could not envision the possibility of a
socialist party leader not being committed to
"The oppression of women is a part of the historical
process which is rooted in the private ownership of
property, the alienation of labor, and the substitution
of commodity exchange," she said.
"Recognizing the parallels and having made the
link between our oppression, the alienation of the
worker, the rape of our natural resources and the
destruction of the environment with the economic
system we call capitalism, we should not compartmentalize and separate our struggles, but accept
that they are all part of the whole."
Brown said being a feminist would not be a liability
to an NDP leadership candidate.
"Feminism, like socialism, calls for a new human
community based on the creative and co-operative
use of power to create new economic, social and
political forms," she said.
Brown said the brutal and dehumanizing capitalist
system is irrational and absurd.
She said the system denies the right to life itself to
millions of people, lays waste and squanders the
resources of the earth and feeds upon injustice, oppression and inequality.
The assembly line is an image of the division and
alienation of labor, the separation of the worker from
the product of his labor and from his fellows, Brown
The modern city with its rows of separate housing
units radiating outward from the central business
core is but an imitation of the assembly line she said.
"In such an environment the nuclear family
becomes an economic unit whose main function is
that of consumer, isolated from any real sense of
community," Brown said.
She said the two major parties are perpetuating the
system rather than trying to help Canadians.
Brown said the NDP must present a clear alternative based not on reforming or patching up their old
line structures but on structuring and designing a
new system*
She said this new system should be based on the
collective responsibility of society for its members.
Brown charged that governments participating in

Math explains Peru anchovy collapse
Ubyssey Anchovy Reporter
Anchovies and earthquakes have
a lot in common if you live in Peru
— they've both been national
The Peru earthquake shook the
nation in 1970 and the anchovy
fishery, the major industry of the
country, suddenly collapsed in
Unlike the earthquake, the anchovy disaster can be described in
terms of a mathematical model as
UBC prof Colin Clark pointed out
Thursday in his lecture, the
Peruvian anchovy and the
mathematical theory of
Clark told more than 50 persons
that the idea behind anchovies and
the mathematical theory of
catastrophies is to develop a
simple qualitative model for
scientific situations thought to be
too complicated to describe.
He noted that in the early '50s
when the market for anchovies was
undeveloped the catch was very
small about two million tons but it
rapidly increased to a peak of 12.5
million tons in 1970 or about one-
tenth of the total world fish catch.
(As a cheap source of concentrated
protein anchovies were extensively
used in North America cattle feed
and pizzas.)
"1971 appeared to be a perfectly
normal year . . however, in the
month   of   December   biologists
noticed that the number of young
fish was low and there were a few
hints of some unusual occurence in
water temperature," Clark said.
He said in the first few months of
1972 the catch was below normal,
again there were very few young in
the catch and as well the El Nina
current which flows from tropical
waters to the coast of Peru had
The decrease in young could be
attributed to overfishing particularly in 1970 and the destructive El Nina current, he said.
Only one million ton of anchovies
were caught in. 1973 and since then
the fishery has been closed, Clark
He noted that similar fisheries
like the California sardine had
collapsed in a similar way in the
50s and at the time of the collapse
the anchovy population there had
Clark said the reverse had occurred in Peru, sardines had increased in number as anchovies
disappeared. This, he said led to
the conjecture that when one
population fell another species
increased or competitive exclusion
Clark then went on to develop the
mathematical theory of
catastrophe reached by combining
two standard fish population
models, Schaefer and Gause.

Proposals for upgrading medical
teaching facilities at three Vancouver hospitals will be made by
mid-March, a B.C. Medical Centre
spokesman said Thursday.
Reports by staff members from
Vancouver General Hospital, St.
Paul's Hospital and Shaughnessy
Hospital are being made in
response to medical school dean
Dr1. David Bates' call for immediate action to improve clinical
teaching facilities in the three
The B.C. Medical Centre is
composed of a group of hospitals
and related health care facilities.
Created by provincial legislation in
1973, the BCMC is in charge of
B.C.'s medical education facilities
and specialized care facilities.
Bates told The Ubyssey last
week he is confident the necessary
improvements will be made to the
clinical facilities in time to
forestall any major worsening of
the-med school's clinical facility
But the hospital planning
director for the Greater Vancouver
Regional Hospital District said
Thursday "we don't have any
knowledge of the dean's presentation except from what we've
read in the papers."
The regional district must approve all major capital expenditures for lower mainland
hospitals outside of BCMC's
jurisdiction, Norman Barth said.
The approval of the regional
district for any teaching facilities
such as teaching wards, "would be
based on a perceived need for
improved facilities," Barth said.
As for the new teaching facilities
to be built by 1980 on the present
site of the Shaughnessy Hospital,
Barth said the regional district
"knows very little about the
proposed development."
The new facility is seen as the
long-term solution to the problem
in the med school's clinical
facilities, he said.

Dutch conspiracy to undermine

"Stupid Usury" slate, seized power

Blocs determine AMS election results
Who said The Ubyssey doesn't
influence voting in Alma Mater
Society elections on this campus?
No, we're not going to crow about
having made thousands of people
walking around out there pull the
chain on the old light bulb above their
heads and say -"Student Unity,that's
the ticket."
We're saying the voter turnout was
so small Wednesday and the split was
so even among the three slates that the
50 Ubyssey people who voted pretty
well swung the election.
And that's bad.
Not that there weren't reasons for
First of all, the official campaign
lasted a total of five days — and two of
these were over a weekend.
That means many people who had
actually heard of the election decided
they honestly didn't have enough
information about the issues and the
candidates to make any sort of an
intelligent decision.
So what happened was we had
several groups voting in blocks.
There were the engineers, who
supported the joke Civilize the AMS
slate and who are now apparently
furious that in doing so, they didn't
mark their ballots preferentially to
allow the Students' Coalition to pick
up the election on the second ballot.
That's their problem now, of
But it's important to note that they
were organizing enough to vote en
bloc — and not enough to be told by
their illustrious leaders to mark their
ballots preferentially.
The jocks voted predictably for the
Students' Coalition, helping that
group gain second spot in the
And   finally,   the   arts   students
turned out to vote for the Unity slate.
Now all of this means of course the
majority of students didn't think
about the elections even if they did
vote in them. And, incidentally, that a
fairly good crew was elected. But that
unfortunately is almost incidental and
In the future, elections should be
better planned, with longer
campaigning periods and a
better-planned series of public
Otherwise bloc votes will swing the

it swings the proper way.
LG workers
In regard to your editorial of
Thursday, concerning the so-called
strike at CKLG, we wish to set the
record straight. Your editorial was
full of shit.
Your information, if not totally
untrue, is largely a group of
warped innuendoes. Having talked
with a non-striking CKLG disc
jockey. Who must remain
anonymous, it is obvious that this
is, at the most, a wildcat strike.
[Two paragraphs omitted
because of libellous and defamatory content.]
You state the strike is an attempt
to get better pay. They the
Canadian Union of Public Employees hope to get an average
annual salary of $14,000. This is not
a bad wage. However, the current
non-union salary is $18,000.
To say Moffatt Broadcasting
chooses the hits is a gross lie, if not
a simple omission of the truth, on
your part.
All of the CKLG jocks confer
weekly to choose the hits, using
data from a number of extensive
surveys. These choices are given
final approval by music director
Roy Hennessy.
The strike is composed of f orteen
(sic) workers, largely clerical and
FM staff out of a total of 57 who
work at CKLG. You state that
some boss jocks are taking part in
the strike. The total is one.
[Another paragraph omitted
because of our neighborhood libel
In conclusion it is apparent that
your habit of warping the truth,
omitting facts and plain lying has
reached a new nadir. Granted we
hate food services head Bob
Bailey, but your (libellous comment) had better learn to write the
truth. This is a necessity for The
Ubyssey as it is for all the media.
Brian McParland
P.S. Keep Alan Doree, he's the one
good writer your staff has.
You're right — the media does
have a responsibility to its public.
It's one we respect, but one which
your unnamed source doesn't. The
whole letter is full of untruths and
obviously constitutes a part of a
CKLG management campaign to
discredit striking workers.
The simple facts first. 'LG

You say the current non-union
salary is $18,000. For whom, might
we ask? Your source? CUPE is
going for the $14,000 bottom figure
because  most station  employees
don't' get that much. It would
hardly be negotiating a salary cut
for its members. And if it were, the
management would hardly be
avoiding signing a contract.
You say the hits are chosen
weekly by jocks, who use data
from a number of surveys. From
whom do they get the surveys and
hence the hits? Aha — Moffat.
'Nuff said.
Finally, there are the omitted
paragraphs. Not to titillate our
readers too much — they concerned the alleged actions of
certain union members on the job
before the strike and on the picket
line after.
The first are patently untrue —
the other workers are not going on
the line to defend a drunk. The
second are ridiculous. If the
workers were behaving like that on
the picket line, management would
have them up in court for
threatening and harrassment in no

Thanks for publishing the letter
from Sam Martz (Jan. 28)
regarding the trials of being left-
handed on campus. I too, was
disturbed to discover, upon
transferring to UBC last fall, that
no provisions have been made for
accommodating left-handed people
in any of the many classrooms or
lecture halls.
Even in Ontario, where
budgetary cutbacks reign
supreme, the educational facilities
have been planned with some
small degree of thought for the 8
per cent of the population who are
not right-handed.
So far as I can determine, the
only provisions on campus
designed for even ambidextrous
use are the microfilm readers on
the sixth floor of the Main Library,
assuming of course, that one can
find them in that maze of "higher"
Left-handed people, the victims
of blind prejudice for far too long,
have slowly begun to express their
indignation at being treated as
second class citizens. That
renowned leftie, Leonardo da
Vinci, retaliated by writing his
journals in a reversed left-handed
script which can only be read by
holding the pages in front of a
mirror. (Other examples of such
ingenuity include the use of left-
handed threads on light bulbs
employed for industrial applications, making them otherwise
useless and hardly worth stealing.
Why, even the American president
is left-handed, proving that if you
were right with Nixon, you get left
with a Ford.
Apparently though, the swarms
of architects and ancilliary
designers who have endowed UBC
with their talents over the past 50
years have included no lefties.
This intolerable situation must
end. The staff of the physical plant
must begin to accommodate the
justifiable demands of left-handed
people. We will not put with mere
tokenism, either: we demand and
immediate conversion of 8 per cent
of all facilities on campus.
Failing this, the administration
will find itself confronted with
sinister plots which even the leftist
slate campaigning in the upcoming
AMS elections will be unable to

Toward healthier sexuality
Contemporary sexuality is caught in a morass of conflicting values. On one side the cry is for a frenzied enthusiasm toward sex — sex in all its forms, sex at all
times, sex to the point of exhaustion. Countering this are
those compulsive and neurotic voices that wish to sweep
sex off the streets and, indeed, out of our lives. This week
Page Friday essays forth its own view of human
The Joy of Sex, and now its companion, More Joy, have
signalled a new opennes toward sexuality. Richard Yates
offers a review of the latter with an eye to the seual values
which motivated the writers of these works.
Communication is the tenuous thread which must tie
together human relationships. Unfortunately the open
discussion of sexuality is not yet fully accepted in our
society. Gordon Roback provides us with a review of the
book which — despite its failings — will hopefully allow
women to explore their own sexuality.
A movie review by Ron Binns considers this same
phenomenon through the cinematic representations of
sexual fantasies. Also, a series of stories written by a local
homosexual based on his own experiences are reviewed
by Grace Eng.
A historical review of prominent writers who have
fought  for  a   healthier   attitude   toward   sexuality   is
presented in a selection of articles by Richard Yates. He
surveys the views of Alexandra Kollontai, a leading
Bolshevik of the 20s, Wilhelm Reich, a noted psychotherapist of the 30s and Alex Comfort, a contemporary
writer and the editor of The Joy of Sex.
On a more immediate level we have articles presenting
the harsher realities of sexuality. The needs of those who
cannot find sexual satisfaction and the story of those who
service them is to be glimpsed in Boyd McConnell's interview with a local prostitute. The unfortunate medical
consequences of sexual expression is covered in an article
by Grace Eng. sexualitysexualitysexuality
Sobering sex
Sex is beautiful, sex is fun, sex is
Ijealthy, sex is natural, and the list
goes on and on.
Sex is obviously a major contributor to the personal and
emotional well being of the
masses, and yet, sex also has its
sobering aspects.
Like any other human social
activity that involves contact of
any sort, whether casual or intimate, there stands a great
chance for the spread of communicable diseases. Colds,
measles, smallpox, diptheria, are
just a few examples of diseases
that are transmitted through many
different ways.
Venereal disease, or VD, on the
other hand is transmitted or
spread exclusively through intimate sexual contact. The two
types most frequently encountered
through sexual contact are
gonorrhea and syphilis, gonorrhea
being the less severe of the two.
"It is a rarity that there is a
confirmed case of VD on the
campus here at UBC," reports Dr.
A. M. Johnson of student health
services, "although there are
many requests for VD tests during
the month."
The number of cases amongst
the student population is so
miniscule that they do not bother
keeping statistics on it.
The situation at Simon Fraser
University is similar. _
Although it seems quiet at the
campus clinics, this is not so at the
provincial government-sponsored
clinics in Vancouver.
"Gonorrhea is spreading at an
average increase rate of 10 per
cent per year since 1969 and right
now is in epidemic proportions,"
said Dr. Henry Kennedy, director
of the health department's
venereal disease control division.
Gonorrhea, is spread through
heterosexual contact and is mainly
the disease of young adults from
the ages of 15 to 30. Since this age
group is generally active and
travels around, the disease is
harder to confine. There were 9,300
reported cases in 1974 in B.C. and
this figure constitutes only 20 per
cent of the projected number of
actual cases.
"There is one type which we call
City Type Gonorrhea, which is not
a different strain or anything but
refers to the people who catch
them," said Kennedy. "These are
the educated and aware ones who
come in for treatment usually
within 20 to 30 days after contracted it. What we are worried
about are the people in the rural
areas who do not have this
knowledge of venereal diseases
and go about untreated.
The problem here is that the
disease left untreated could spread
to other internal organs or result in
Syphilis cases are far fewer in
number and have a distinct pattern
of spreading. It is spread largely
through homosexual contact,
though occasionally it is spread
into heterosexual groups. There
were only 150 reported cases in
What ever type of venereal
disease one thinks they may have,
the most important tiling is that
they go in for a checkup and
treatment if necessary.
Everything is done in the strictest
confidence and any records are
automatically destroyed after a
maximum of nine months. If your
case is found to be positive you are
required to name your sexual
contacts so that they too may have
treatment. The whole procedure is
quick, clean and safe.

which will do this service free of

"It's all economics — supply and demand." That's what
reporter Boyd McConnell was told by a "veteran"prostitute of19\ during a cruise of the downtown scene.
It's hard to be honest with prostitutes. And
I suppose that's because they live in a very
dishonest world; people trying to get
freebies, men with kinky sexual habits, and
pimps beating them up.
My first attempt at interviewing a
prostitute — or whore, or hooker, or
daughter of the night, or whatever — was a
dismal failure. Going into a bar, I spotted
what was a good bet to be a hooker. She was
wearing a long, satin dress; heavy make-up
all over her face; and she was alone. I ap
proached her and sat down at her table. She
was very nice and I bought her a drink. Then
I told her I would like to interview her. She
balked at my proposal and put up a mental
block, looking bored and uninterested.
At that, I took out my press card in an
attempt to prove that I was indeed a
reporter. She didn't even look at it, but
everybody else in the bar stopped what they
were doing and looked at me. They thought I
was flashing a badge.
To make things worse, I had two friends —
researchers that is — who were helping me
find material for my assignment. They were
talking to other whores, but everyone had
seen the three of us come into the bar
together. They thought the place was being
The three of us went to another bar but the
same sort of thing happened. I decided to
abandon the honest approach and work
We went to another nightclub on Main
Street and sat down like were prospective
"Johns" — customers or "tricks" that is. We
spotted two prostitutes and invited them
over to our table. After buying them drinks
— a brandy and a gin fizz — we started to
ask innocent questions.
I worked on one of the whores and the
other two researchers worked on the other
The one I talked with was 19; she's been
hustling since she was 17.
How much do you make, I ask her innocently:
"Hell, I can make as much as I wanna. It
depends on how much you wanna hustle, you
know. Some girls work their asses off, but I
don't work that hard," she said, sipping her
brandy and looking me in the "eyes.
"Some girls make $500 to $700 a week,"
she added. "Of course, I don't wanna work
that hard, so I don't make as much."
The question of prices: "You can go out
with me for $50," she said.
(The other whore offered to go out for
A quick computation revealed that she
would only have to go out with 10 tricks to
make $500 a week;
"Well, I gotta have time to myself. I work
during the week, you know."
(The other whore has an office job with
the city during the week.)
Although whores seem to make great
sums of money, there is always the question
of pimps, who usually take the greater
portion of the wages of sin.
"I don't have a pimp and I don't know of
anybody else who works around here who
does," she said firmly.
I ask her why she bothers to work at all
during the daytime.
"Shit Man, you gotta work or else the
income tax people'U start wondering how
you can afford what you got."
And how did you get started, I asked her.
"I met a man. He took me out and paid
me. It was easy. He said, 'with teats like
yours (they were big) you got a goldmine."
"Don't you ever get scared? I mean, don't
people — ah,tricks — get into a bit of kinky
stuff? Especially now the the promotion of
books on the subject, people's  liberation
from Victorian sexual morals," I asked her.
"You get the odd guy now and again. It's
nothing great. Sometimes a guy wants to
watch me make it with another girl. Some
guy wants me to make it hurt and shit like
I asked her if that meant she was a
"Oh no. I just get together with the other
girl and we fake it. Besides it's just a job."
So I asked her what happens if a trick is
too kinky, like wanting to beat her with a
vacuum cleaner hose or something:
"I don't usually run into that. I'm a pretty
good judge of people. But if it happened, I'd
fight like nothing on this earth and run out of
the room."
"Where do you, ah, perform your services," I ask.
"A hotel room, right around the corner.
Part of the fee covers the cost of the room."
"You're young, good-looking and seem
intelligent. Why don't you go to school or
something," a researcher asked.
"Me? University? I don't look intelligent," she said candidly.
"Yes, but you sound just as intelligent as
the people that go to school," one researcher
"O.K., but I make more than any
graduate I know of, so what's the deal? I
mean, I already told you I get off on what
I'm doing and, besides, it's all tax free!"
"I can't help but wonder," Kent, a
researcher stated "that when you meet

Without doubt, this book is stimulating, sensual and erotic.
". . .We are at this Baltimore Colt-Minnesota Viking
football game, and it is very cold. Four or five of us are
huddled under a big glen plaid blanket. Suddenly we jump up
to watch Johnny Unitas running toward the goal. As he races
down the field, we all turn as one body, wrapped in our
blanket, screaming with excitement. Somehow, one of the
men —Idon't know who, and in my excitement I can't look —
has gotten himself more closely behind me. I keep cheering,
my voice an echo of his, hot on my neck. I can feel his erection through his pants as he signals me with a touch to turn
my hips more directly toward h|im. Unitas is blocked, but all
the action, thank God, is still going toward that goal and all of
us keep turned to watch. Everyone is going mad. He's got his
cock out now and somehow it's between my legs; he's torn a
hole in my tights under my short skirt and I yell louder as the
touchdown gets nearer now. We are jumping up and down
and I have to lift my leg higher, to the next step on the
bleachers, to steady myself; now the man behind me can slip
it in more easily. We are all leaping about, thumping one
another on the back, and he puts his arm around my
shoulders to keep us in rhythmj He's inside me now, shot
straight up through me like a ramrod; my God, it's like's in
my throat! "All the way, Johnnyf. Go, go, run, run!" we
scream together, louder than anyone, making them all cheer
louder, the two of us leading the excitement like cheer
leaders, while inside me I can feel whoever he is growing
harder and harder, pushing deeper and higher into me with
each jump until the cheeringifor Unitas becomes the rhythm
of our fucking and all around us everyone is on our side,
cheering us and the touchdown . \ . it's hard to separate the
two now. It's Unitas' last down, everything depends on him;
we're racing madly, almost at our own touchdown. My excitement gets wilder, almost out of control as I scream for
Unitas to make it as we do, so that we all go over the line
together. And as the man behind me roars, clutching me in a
spasm of pleasure, Unitas goes over and I. . . .
There are 399 more examples.
Female fantasies are another matter altogether. According to Nancy Friday some women are not consciously
aware of them; most women have them, yet few women will
admit that they have them and even fewer will reveal them.
The apparent explanation for this reticence is that many
women regard their sexual fantasies as more intimate than
the sex act itself.
The aim of the book is to enable women to lose some of the
feeling of sexual isolation and accept their fantasies without
shame, guilt or anxiety.
The danger with this type of book is that it is more often
concerned with presenting titillating material rather than
presenting a valid insight of the female psyche.
Friday's main premise is that sexual fantasies contribute
to more enjoyable lovemaking, better sexual relationships,
and the pleasure is even greater if the women shares her
fantasies with her lover. There is some ambiguity and uncertainty on this point, however, because it leads to a sexual
Catch 22.
In an apparent contradiction she states, if you tell your
partner about your thoughts he will probably become upset
because he will feel his masculinity is threatened. After all, it
is not very complimentary to inform him you are thinking of
another man while making love. Friday explains that men
are uncomfortable and feel threatened by women's fantasies
since "they present an unconquerable rival over whom they
have no control." Of course this depends on the personality of
the lover. While Friday gives examples to show how
relationships have been enhanced by this revelation, she
advises that the best course is to relax and enjoy your fantasies and keep them to yourself.
My main objection to the book is that the fantasies,
presented as an accurate portrayal of the "female" attitude
to sex, appear to vindicate the stereotypes men have thrust
upon women. There is a dichotomy between love and sex in
all the fantasies. They deal with violent rape, sex with
animals, penis size, inter-racial coupling and so on. This is
especially surprising in light of the recent criticism which the
women's movement has flung at the depiction of women in
novels written by men.
Sexual fantasies do permit women to have a secret vision
of ideal sexual activity, however, without the consequences
of the actual experience.

No smugness in Comfort
Alex Comfort is known to most of us
through his connection with The Joy of Sex..
His involvement with this book is indirect at
best. The authors needed a person to cover
for them, to allow them to keep their
anonymity. Comfort had an established
name as an open-minded writer on sexual
themes, so the arrangement was a natural.
There are two books by Comfort which
deal explicitly with sexual matters: The
Anxiety Makers and an earlier book, Sex
and Society. Both books are concerned with
ridding ourselves of misconceptions about
sexual matters and unnecessary restrictions upon our sexual expression.
The more recent book, The Anxiety
Makers, is subtitled: Some Curious
Preoccupations of the Medical Profession.
The purpose of this work is to trace how
supposedly knowledgeable men, medical
men, have at various times passed off onto
us false knowledge arising from their own
sexual anxieties.
"Generations have "retailed to their
patients a great flood of reproductive
misinformation, most of it moralistic in
intention as well as content. Diseases and
physical mischiefs have been invented, and
produced in the susceptible by medical
intimidation. All due allowance having been
made for unconscious forces in patient and
doctor, one can only conclude that there are
none as unscrupulous as the devout, and that
generations of medical men, in the interest
of promoting right conduct have given
advice which they should have known by
observation to be nonsense, and which "had
been demonstrated to be nonsense when it
was given, to patients who knew in their
hearts that it was nonsense, but were driven
by anxiety to accept it."
This book is a source of hopeless humor
tinged with moments of despair. It is simply
incredible the extent which exaggerations,
distortions and falsifications have been
taken as accurate. Consider this
Renaissance author's catalogue of the
pitfalls of sexuality:
"Sex dries up the 'natural balsamic
quality' and shortens life. It also whitens
hair and produces baldness — especially if
one picks an old partner. Menstruation is
magical, and coitus with a menstrous
woman dangerous: it is also risky after a hot
bath, but not a cold one [this is a seed which
was later to germinate]. Scabies,
elephantiasis and gonorrhea are equally due
to intemperance — likewise blindness. It is
bad for the voice, especially if one wishes to
remain a high soprano."
This is so silly that it leaves us weak from
laughter, but our mirth must be tinged with
sadness because the author of these words
was a renowned author whose words were
taken quite seriously for centuries. It is
terribly disturbing to realize how deeply
misconception and lies cut into our
knowledge of ourselves. This leaves our
confidence shaken that we can truly be
honest with ourselves about sexuality.
The chapter that provides the fullest
display of sexual insanity is the one dealing
with masturbation.
"The Emperor Heliogabalus offered a
prize [so far, I understand, unclaimed] to
anyone who could invent a new vice.
Masturbation was invented by an
anonymous clergyman turned quack, who in
1710, or thereabouts, published a treatise
entitled Onania, or the Heinous Sin of Self-
pollution. He did not invent it as a practice,
for it is fairly general in mammals, even in
those which have no hands — nor as a vice,
for an Irish penitential of about A.D. 575
apportions a two-year penance for its
practice my monks [as against 13 years for
guiding barbarian raiders to a Christian
settlement]. What the author of Onania
invented was a boy, and his book
inaugurated one of the most curious and
unedifying chapters of medicosexual
The extent to which supposedly civilized
people have gone to quash this pleasure is
incredible. There is a carefully documented
account in The Anxiety Makers of how the
medical profession allowed "treatments"
for masturbation that included binding
down children and lunatics, the prescribing
of chastity-belt apparati, and infibulation of
males. The latter is the placing of a silver
wire ring through the foreskin to make
masturbation impossible.
The most grotesque — but not so isolated
instance of medical intervention to destroy a
harmless pleasure is given in the following
"In 1894, wefindDr. Eyer of the St. John's
Hospital, Ohio, dealing with nervousness
and masturbation in a little girl by
cauterizing the clitoris; this failing, a
surgeon was called in to bury it with silver
wire sutures — which the child tore and
resumed the habit. The entire organ was
then excised, with the crura. Six weeks after
the operation the patient is reported as
saying, "You know there is nothing there
now, so I could do nothing'."
Examples like this seem so incredible we
feel contemporary society has risen to a
morally superior state. But have we
progressed beyond this level of brutality and
mis-guidedness? Not really. Today our
anxieties have shifted to artificial insemination and scientific research on
human reproductivity. Our attitude toward
abortion still provides horror stories as bad
as any given above. Aversion therapy,
lobotomies and other such unconscious
aggression against deviants are modern
examples of horror stories that hide behind
the mask of human intention.
The older book, Sex and Society, is an
essay which was written in 1950 in order to
liberate sexuality from the irrational
restrictions then placed on it. Its message is
no longer radical, but at its inception it must
have been attacked as a dangerous heresy
against sexual orthodoxy.
The book attempts to liberate our ideas
about sexuality. It is a clear progenitor to
the sexual philosophy to be found in a book
such as The Joy of Sex. It is truly wonderful
to see how Alex Comfort's ideas have succeeded in establishing themselves in
enlightened minds.
"Unlike the coercive view of marriage,
the humanistic interpretation of sexual
ethics is sufficiently elastic to cover the
variations in person and circumstance with
which it has to deal . . We tend now to limit
assertions of value to one: that nothing, in
any field of human conduct, should
knowingly prejudice the welfare of others;
beyond that point, it is likely that the use of
psychology and biology as sources of
standards will widen both the comprehension of the public and its power of
solving a given emotional problem. Instead
of asserting that extra-marital intercourse
is always and  at all  times  wrong,   this
\ i
system of ethics points out the responsibility
of an individual to his partner, his children,
and the third party, and leaves the exact
pattern of his answer to his own social
Comfort presents a humane guideline on
the whole range of sexual relations:
marriage, trial marriage, freedom for
adolescents to experiment sexually, sex
education, homosexuality, prostitution, and
the problems of the unmarried. On all these
subjects he has something to say that truly
deserves our attention.
One great evil that Comfort inveighs
against is serial polygamy. This is nothing
else but our modern practice of divorce
which provides sexual partners in a series
for the person. This translates into the
reality that children no longer experience a
stable and emotionally wholesome environment. Comfort argues for a more
flexible sexuality which would relieve the
stress marriages. The demands for total
commitment and absolute fielity in the
modern conception of marriage are
responsible for this tension.
Alex Comfort is a contemporary well
worth reading. We need to be shaken out of
our complacent smugness about sexuality
and Comfort is the right person for this job.

he had the audacity to express brash ideas.
The ideas he so passionately pushed forward
were at times profoundly true and at other
times badly misguided. The task of sorting
the good from the bad is left to the student of
Reich's notoriety is based on his
unabashed advocacy and development of
Freud's early libidinal theory. Reich fully
accepted the Freudian theory of a mental
energy which, if not properly discharged,
would create psychic illness. Reich claimed
to have found this energy, which he called
"orgone energy," and advocated that this
energy could be properly discharged
through a full and healthy orgasm.
■ The unmitigated sexuality in Reich's
theory proved to be a curse to him. This and
his political involvement with the communists during the 30s led to his banishment
from Germany, Denmark and Norway
during these years.
While Reich's proposed psychological
theory is a bit wooly, his insights on human
sexuality are profound and his political

The Joy of Sex was a delight for the eye
and the mind. Its phenomenal sales record
is evidence of its appropriateness for our
times. More Joy will be decidedly less of a
delight — in either sense — for most
readers. It says very little more that will
add any joy, or technique, or knowledge to
our sexual experience. Moreover, its
illustrations seem to have been taken from
the reject pile of the earlier book.

Another aspect of sexual relations — one
which is all too often ignored — is the
problem of fidelity. The philosophy of
openness, honesty and compassion which
lies behind both these books is expressed
beautifully in The Joy of Sex:
"Whdt suits a particular couple depends
on their needs, situation, anxieties and so
on. These needs are a particularly delicate
problem in communication: if mutual
comprehension is complete and ongoing you
can count yourselves lucky. Active
deception always hurts a relationship.
Complete frankness which is aimed to avoid
guilt or as an act of aggression against a
partner can do the same. The real problem
arises from the fact that sexual relations

fences by treatment. Prevention of sex
imes by improved methods of upbringing
id   the   elimination   of   their   economic
vuses.   The  protection   of   children   and
iolescents against seduction.
Reich was on the leading edge of the fight
ir women's rights  to  abortion  and the
ivenile's sexual rights.
It is extremely difficult to summarize
eich's work to liberate modern man. Here
a broad view of his approach:
"Reich saw the sociological issues raised
v  his  work  as  concerning  three basic
• The problem of prevention of neuroses:
le question of education and upbringing.
• The problem of sex-negative attitudes in
jciety: the question of sexual reform.
• The problem of authoritarian
epression in society: the question of social
eform as a whole.
"These three problems were closely inter-
elated. Reich saw the three principal
hases of life in which the neuroses were
red as: early infancy, when the principal
haracter-attitudes were formed;
dolescence, when the sexual needs were at
iieir peak and were simultaneously allowed
o acceptable outlet; and compulsive
narriage, where sexual and economic
eeds were in conflict."
Reich's personal heroism in the fight
gainst Fascism goes beyond the realm of
he intellectual struggle into the arena of
iction. On the intellectual side we have his
wok, The Mass Psychology of Fascism
(published in 1933). As an activist he
organized sexual health leagues in cooperation with the communists.
In early 1933 Hitler assumed power and
began his infamous career with the arrest of
1,500 intellectuals. Reich was not among this
first batch, but his reputation and his continued work at distributing banned leaflets
put him in immediate danger of arrest. He
stayed in the struggle until it became obvious that his arrest was imminent — only
then did he flee.
Reich did make profound contributions to
psychology. His character analysis was.
hailed as a constructive addition to psychoanalysis. It is only in the later theories of
Reich that his work becomes dubious.
The later Reich felt that he had discovered
the material substrate for an all-pervading
sexual energy. This is less a scientific
theory than a poetic vision. If we take it in
the latter sense, it is a religious myth which
is perhaps suitable for our times.
For an understanding of Reich politico-
sexual ideas, one should look at books like
Sex-Pol, The Sexual Revolution, and The
Mass Psychology of Fascism. The more
sublime and metaphysical Reich is to be
found in books like The Function of the
Orgasm, Ether, God and Devil, and The
Murder of Christ. As a good antidote to the
above, a strong dose of the book titled
Wilhelm Reich by Charles Rycroft will
enable you to keep a sceptical perspective
on Reich.
fusion of identities;  the heartaches arise
when each partner sees it differently."
More Joy does not essentially extend this
open attitude toward sex. It does deepen it
by giving it a fuller discussion, though at
times the reader feels he is being given an
inflated account which has been filled with
extraneous matter to create the illusion of a
full length book.
At times this book does rise above itself
with a clear insight, succinctly stated and
"Sexinhumans has three functions. It can
be reproductive [producing babies],
relational [expressing love and bonding
adults together], or recreational [play and
fun]. Most human problems over sex arise
from anxiety over, and confusion among,
these modes."
The first section of More Joy covers the
topics of massage, non-verbal communication, and touching:
". . .to have good sex, rather than just sex
of a sort, we need the total acceptance of our
whole body as a source of pleasure, not of
guilt, fear, prohibitions, precautions and
better-not warnings. In this respect we've
still got a fair distance to go as a society.
love is a relation not a romance or a
margarine commercial."
The traditional response toward infidelity,
jealousy, is exposed by the authors as
merely a learned response:
"The trouble is that we have been encouraged to confuse fear of rejection [real]
with jealousy [conventional]. Now that
parenthood is controllable the only original
basis for hardline male jealousy is obsolete."
If this more open attitude toward
sexuality is ever achieved then we will
discover the manifold ways that we can
involve ourselves in relating to other people.
One of the more interesting sections in this
book discusses Sandstone, California. This
is a place which acts like a club with
memberships and whose sole function is to
allow people (in couples) to come together
to explore their sexuality with others. A
fairly incisive discussion of the advantages
and disadvantages of this sexual experiment is given.
If you are curious about this new volume, I
would suggest that you slip into your
favorite bookstore and peruse the Sandstone
section. Here is the focal point to much of
what is new that is being said in this volume.
To have truly good sex we need total acceptance of our whole body as a source
of pleasure, not of guilt, fear, prohibitions and precautions. In this respect
we've got a fair distance to go as a society.
The various sensual things we describe here
are intended to move that along."
The third section, called Couples and
Others, extends the new morality which is
really more akin to an older morality. It is a
morality based on the respect of the sexual
partner as a person and not an object:
"During the 19th century a new emphasis
appeared. More and more marriage and
love were seen as a lifelong perpetuation of
the peak experience of courtship, that of two
individuals living wholly in and for each
other, in a state of mutual self-absorption
and mutual proprietorship."
These impossible demands of the recent
past have led to the breakdown of so many
marriages. The authors of More Joy argue
for a greater f lexibility toward the marriage
"Marriage also has contractual advantages in that it regularizes the business
side of the relations between two people who
live together. But for adults whose bond is
compassionate and sexual, "primary
relationship" is a much better phrase: it
bypasses the law books, implies commitment, but is unrigid in that it is for the
parties to decide what exactly that means
for them. Primary relationships can
change, sometimes coexist, and supplement
each other. Using another name doesn't
draw the teeth of human living, prevent
sorrow and rejection, or stop people
fighting, but it tends to the recognition that
Another section well worth digesting is
found under the title Selfishness. Here the
theme of sexuality's political dimension is
given a far too brief discussion:
"The antisexualism of authoritarian
societies and the people who run them
doesn't spring from conviction [they
themselves have sex], but from the vague
perception that freedom here might lead to
a liking for freedom elsewhere . . . The
obsession with money-grubbing and power-
hunting is quite largely fueled by early
distortions of body image and of self-esteem
— distortions that carry over into a whole
range of political behaviors, from hating
and bullying people to wrecking the countryside for a profit you don't need and can't
use. In fact, most great powers are now run
by a minority of sick people, suffering from
their inability to eroticize and hence
humanize their experience, who use the rest
of us for play therapy."
The hope behind these statements is that
by love you will set the real soul — the
humane and compassionate soul — free. If
only it were true! I for one am willing to
believe in this myth, for it is a more
desirable myth than the pessimistic ones
that we are given about man's innate
competitiveness, his lack of regard for the
welfare of others in his society, or his sinfulness.
More Joy is a book worth perusing, but I
do not think it goes sufficiently beyond The
Joy of Sex to justify its purchase.

make it over the road in time to
catch the start of The Young
The Golden Kitten is almost
worth a visit for itself, since it's
unlike any movie-theatre you've
likely been in before.
It's a tiny cinema, suffused in a
red glow from a series of red glass
wall panels set along the side
walls, which slope inward like the
inside of a Jules Verne submarine
or a spaceship out of Star-Trek.
Unlike the Eve the houselights
never go up, which spares all
paranoids the embarrassment of
being observed . . .
The Young Passions begins with
the most erotic scene in any of
these four movies — a girl lying
naked on her bed energetically
masturbating. It is the most
sexually explicit moment, too,
since the lips of her vagina are
clearly visible. Young Passions is
also the only one of the four to
feature a discreet buggery scene —
more persuasive then the stylized
one in Last Tango In Paris, the girl
crying out in pain while the man
pumps away muttering, "Yah,
you're really enjoying it." It didn't
really look as if she was though.
Young Passions is also the most
cloying of these movies because it
pretends to a moral message. The
girl around whom the story centres
sets out on her sexual odyssey after
discoverying Mom cheating on
She loses her virginity to the first
guy to pick her up as she's hitching
a ride while running away from
home. In a scene rumoured to
come close to every red-blooded
engineer's dream, initial fumbling
with the lady's breasts evokes
orgasmic moans of delight and her
whispered invitation, "take me . . .
do it all to me."
Her journey is counterpointed
with that of the man destined to be
her husband — a moron with a
motorbike, newly-discharged from
heroic service in Vietnam. The
ending has a sickly sentimentality
as the Ail-American male huskily
confesses that the fact that he
didn't try to screw her on their first
date testifies that it's "the real
thing" — yes, it's (sob) . .   love.
Luckily one's jaded eyes have
hardly registered "The End"
before the flashing screeen snaps
straight into Tango of Perversion.
The Tango is a night-club, and
the perversion is a tame mixture of
cocaine-sniffing, lesbianism and

Research report out in summer
VICTORIA — The chairman of a
special research team studying the
B.C. education department's
research and development branch
said Thursday a report will be
released this summer after several
months of research at a "modest"
per diem payment.
Chairman George Pedersen,
University of Victoria education
dean, said in a telephone interview
his committees terms of reference
are not specifically related to the
Stanley Knight firing, but the
committee will "determine what
the state of the art is in research
and development findings in both
private and public sectors."
Pedersen said he and the three
UVic profs assisting him will
travel and 'later hold public
hearings. He said members will be
paid for each day's work at a
"modest" rate, but declined to say
how much except that it would be
under $100 a day.
Pedersen said the committee
will examine education research
and development in the United
States and Sweden. Hoever, he said
it is unlikely the committee will
travel to Sweden.
Pedersen said deputy education
minister Jack Fleming asked him
Scientology retreats
OTTAWA (CUP) — After first
removing books critical of the
Church of Scientology, two
university libraries are now
replacing them.
And after threatening legal
action if the libraries did not
remove the books, the Church of
Scientology has now withdrawn
their requests, saying that "our
mutual interests in preserving
intellectual freedom and free
speech actually lie parallel."
Both St. Mary's University in
Halifax and Sir George Williams
campus of Concordia University in
Montreal had removed the book,
Scientology: The Now Religion by
George Malko after receiving
letters November 1973 from the
Church of Scientology. The letters
asked that the books be removed
from the library as the church felt
they were defamatory. They said
legal action was being taken
against the bookv in the Supreme
Court of Ontario.
Scientologists at that time were
undertaking a similar campaign
against libraries and bookstores
across Canada, including B.C., to
have three other books removed
from public view: The Mind
Benders, by Carl Vosper, a former
official at Scientology's world
headquarters; Scandals of
Scientology, by Paulette Cooper
and Inside Scientology, by Robert
Scientologists argue the books
are full of defamatory and false
statements. They feel they should
not be allowed in public libraries
and they point to Canadian libel
law to back their point of view.
Under current law it is possible a
library can be successfully sued if
it knowingly distributes any book
which contains defamatory
"Our board of governors insisted
that we remove it (Malko's book)
as soon as they received a legal
opinion," said Ruth Hafter, chief
librarian St. Mary's.
"I was personally very opposed
to this and I still am, for I feel it
Council rescinds money
The grad class council Thursday
rescinded a controversial motion
granting grad class funds to undergraduate societies.
However, council passed another
motion allowing grads to choose
which societies are to receive
funds for composite photographs.
Council president Tom deWolf
said last week funding of the
composites is "up in the air" and
that the administration would be
asked to pay for the composites
which amounted to about $3,500
last year.
Council members Ron Walls and
Frank Tichler had threatened to
take the rebate motion, originally
proposed   by   arts   rep   Nancy
Carter, to student court, but have
since withdrawn the action.
The money would have been
given to the societies on the basis of
$3 for each student graduating out
of the faculty or department represented by the undergraduate
However, deWolf said the
practice, as well as that of the grad
class paying for composite pictures requested by undergraduate
schools and departments, is
"traditional" and not specifically
stated in the constitution.
Voting to decide which^societies
will receive funds for composites
will take place today in the SUB

Knight was fired under
provisions of the Public Service
Act which allow the deputy
minister to dismiss a probationary
employee without giving advance
A spokesman for the Public
Service Commission said Thursday a section of the act providing
an appeals board for non-union
employees like Knight has not been
proclaimed but he can appeal
under sections of the earlier Civil
Service Act.
Knight would first appeal to
Fleming. If Fleming rejects his
appeal and mediation procedures
end, he would appear before at
least three of the five commission

The spokesman said if Knight
loses the commission appeal he
can go to the provincial cabinet.

James Kanasy, director of Sir

Hafter's feelings. "This whole

Athletics at UBC:
Paternalism flourishing
In the upcoming weeks the
Ubyssey sports staff is going to
take a hard look at the athletic
program at UBC. Hopefully the
weakness of the system will be
brought out and alternatives offered.
This week the over-all structures
of the athletic establish-ment will
be looked at. The focus will be
primarily on the men's program.
Next week Carl Vesterback will
analyze the women's program and
the alleged disparities between it
and the men's program.
To the average student, athletics
at UBC conjures up visions of a
great monolithic structure that
takes five dollars from him to send
various assortments of jocks
roaming about western Canada,
and then demands another fiver if
he wants to run the circuit.
Actually, the five dollar athletic
fee collected from each student at
the beginning of each year goes to
the extramural program. The total
this year of approximately $110,000
is split between the men and the
women's programs. Of each five
dollars $4.20 goes to the men and 80
cents to the women.
To this sum are added grants
from other sources, primarily
board of governors grants and
administration grants. The total
budget estimates for men's
athletics this year was $136,935 and
for the women $39,700.
The intramural program is
headed by assistant physical
education professor Nestor Korchinsky. Although its roots are in
the physical education faculty, it is
primarily funded by a $12,000 AMS
Recreation UBC gets its budget
from membership fees. Students
are charged five dollars, faculty
and staff 10. Rec UBC is headed by
senior physical education instructor Ed Gautschi.
The Men's Athletics Committee
(MAC) is the budgetary and policy
making committee for men's
extramural sports. It is made up of
student administration, alumni,
and faculty representatives. Dr.
Harold Norton was appointed
chairman by administration
president Walter Gage. Men's
athletic director, Bus Phillips and
Buzz Moore, his assistant, are also
administration members, although
their positions are ex-officio.
John Cartwell is an ex-officio
alumni rep.
Dr. Reed Mitchell, Dr. S. P.
Kutney, and Robert Osborne,
director of the physical education
With cheese, tomato, ham,
pepperoni, onions, and
Only 40c a Square
and recreation faculty, are the
faculty representatives on the
The current student representatives are Alma Mater Society
president Gordon Blankstein, Mel
Reeves and Tim Frick. The Men's
Athletic Association president,
Preston Wiley, and vice president
Tom Rippon are also student
members. The MAA is made up of
the athletes on the men's extracurricular teams.
Each year MAC gathers together
the extracurricular budget
estimates, then submits them to
the board of governors for approval.
That, basically, is the
organizational structure of men's
athletics. Its shortcomings lie in
two areas: over-representation of
faculty and poor organization in
the most important area: -intramurals recreation.
Rec UBC has justifiably been
criticised on a number of fronts.
The basic fault of it is that it isn't
necessary. There is really no
reason why it cannot be handled by
the intramurals program.
The difference between the two
is slight. Intramurals runs
programs of an organized nature
open to all students, but with
varying degrees of seriousness.
Rec UBC is aimed at casual individuals and group activities. The
functions are so much the same the
same organization can handle
Rec UBC has created a
bureaucracy whose function seems
to be little more than to maintain
itself. It has caused more trouble
than it is worth, and the ire
directed toward it by the students
has spread to the athletic program
as a whole. Intramurals is well
financed and well run; it should not
take much to expand its boundaries to take in the casual athlete.
The matter of faculty participation in extramural athletics
is a more ticklish matter. Certainly
all segments of the university
community should have a part in
the athletics programs; students,
administration, faculty and staff.
This participation should be a
complete participation.
The faculty and administration
are in important positions on all
the important committees but this
is the sum total of their participation.
In effect they are having an
•equal say with students regarding
the administration of funds almost
totally provided by students. The
administration lays claim to a
greater contribution but the
validity of this claim is debatable
and will be evaluated in the weeks
to come.
The university staff is completely left out of the picture.
Obviously, faculty, administration and staff cannot
participate in extramural sport but
this is the only area where their
involvement is denied, except as
There  is  no  reason  why  the
faculty should not be expected to
make a financial contribution to
university athletics, both intramural and extramurals.
The lack of staff involvement
should also be rectified.
If the university community is
really expected to act like a
community then the paternalistic
structure of. athletics that
originated at the turn of the century is going to have to be changed.
After all, sports probably
represent the largest common
interest, either in the role of a
spectator or participant, between
all the divergent members of that

Basketballers scuffling for first
The biggest basketball series so
far this season will be taking place
at War Memorial Gym Friday and
Saturday. The University of
Victoria has been vying with
UBC's teams for control of first
place since play started in
The Thunderettes hope to finally
shake off the tenacious pursuit of
the Vikettes. Both teams are
currently tied for first place, but
UBC has two games in hand.
Coming off two weak games in
Edmonton last weekend, the
Thunderettes hope to turn things
around against Victoria.
"We had a really good practice
Tuesday," said coach Susan
Evans. "I had a good talk with the
girls, and it seems to have worked.
We worked hard, and then all went
out to the Pit together afterwards." The team that boozes
never loses? "Something like
that," said Evans.
Even without the hopeful attitude of the coach, the odds seerrr^
to be in UBC's favour. They are
unbeaten at home. They haven't
lost since December, when they
lost a very  close game  to  the
Vikettes in Victoria, a game in
which Evans had only eight
healthy players. And they have
Carol Turney, league leader in
scoring percentage. Added to this
is a.strong, tall forward line that
should control the major portion of
the rebounds.
For the 'Birds, every game is
now crucial, according to coach
Peter Mullins. "At this point, even
a single loss could eliminate a
team from the playoffs," he said.
UBC is in a three way tie for second
place with Alberta and Calgary.
UVic holds first place, but has
played two more games than the
second place teams.

'Birds from taking game 3-1. 'Birds will be in action this weekend in
Edmonton against Huskies.
Hockey 'Birds shoot for playoff spot
The hockey 'Birds can lock up
second place this weekend if they
retain their four point lead over the
University of Calgary in CWUAA
action this weekend.
With Calgary playing host to the
lowly U of Saskatchewan Huskies
and the 'Birds in Edmonton
against the league leading Golden.
Bears, it looks as if UBC will have
to wait another week before they
can wrap it up in a head-to-head
clash with the Dinosaurs in
Coach Bob Hindmarch is confident his squad will be able to
handle the tough Golden Bears.
"I think we can beat them,
although it's kind of hard to beat
any team in this league in their
own rink. "Alberta has probably
the toughest defence to beat in the
league and the best goals-against
average. We'll just have to put the
puck in the net a lot."
One of things the 'Birds have
been famous for this season to date
is their poor second period
showings. Along with injuries, it
has been this middle period slump
that has held them to their modest
10-9-1 record to date. Fortunately,
UBC has been able to come back.
"We're definitely a third period
club," said Hindmarch. "I think
it's due to our superior conditioning, thanks to (assistant
coach Bert) Halliwell. He's seen to
it that we are the fittest team in the
Hindmarch credits the return of
Jim Lawrence in helping the team
through those middle period blues.
Lawrence missed nine games
this season with a bruised foot.
"Jim's the backbone of our
team. When the rest of the team
stops playing he just goes on
hustling, back-checking and
skating. When we beat Calgary 10-5
last Friday night, he was the only
one hitting. As a result the team
got back together and wrapped up
the game with four goals in the last
. period."
Another valuable returnee from
the injury list is Grant Cumberbirch, who adds spark to the
team with his speed and desire. He
even roughed it up a bit with
Calgary's John MacPhee in that 10-
5 UBC win.
The CWUAA had two teams
ranked in the top ten last week,
third place going to Alberta and
tenth place going to Calgary. Now
the 'Birds have a 4-1-1 record
against Calgary so far this season
winning the last four games. It
didn't earn them a ranking in the
top ten last week but they have
been ranked ninth in the country
this week.
Games will be carried live to
UBC via CITR Radio 650 from
Edmonton this weekend. Game
times are 7:00 p.m. Saturday and
1:30 p.m. Sunday.
Japanese hockey comes
The Japanese National Hockey team will be in
Vancouver Feb. 18 at 8 p.m. to take on the UBC
Thunderbirds at Kerrisdale Arena.
The game winds up a 10-day, six-game Canadian
tour by the Japanese nationals, which starts Feb. 9
against the Toronto Marlboros in Toronto.
The Japanese then move west for a game in London
against the University of Western Ontario, Feb. 10; to
Pine Falls, Ont. Feb. 12 against a junior all-star
team; to Prince Albert, Sask., Feb. 14 against the
junior Raiders; to Lloydminster against the Border
Kings Feb. 16, before arriving in Vancouver Monday,
Feb. 17 at 3:55 p.m. for their game the next day.
The Japanese team is coached by former hockey
'Bird, Terry O'Malley, who played at UBC five years
ago. He rates the Japanese as a completely changed
team than the one the 'Birds saw on their Chinese
tour last year. In their only meeting the 'Birds
clobbered them 18-2.
O'Malley says his team will probably win the "B"
division in the up-and-coming Olympic games.
The game will be held at the Kerrisdale Arena
because its seating capacity is close to 3,000 compared with the Winter Sports Arena's 1,200. Usually
international meets such as this are financed by such
groups as Hockey Canada, but this year the money is
coming from the campus.
The arena on campus simply can't make the game
The Japanese itinerary is as follows: Monday, Feb.
17, arrive af Vancouver International Airport 3:55
p.m.; accommodation at the Hotel Georgia;
Tuesday, February 18, practise in the morning,
luncheon at noon at the Faculty Club, the game at
8:00 p.m.
The team leaves for Tokyo Wednesday, Feb. 19 at
team I've ever coached," Mullins
said. "It takes most of a season for
young team to settle down and play
consistent basketball." Have the
'Birds settled down?
"We've improved a great deal.
We're beginning to play consistently now."
Mullins said that, on the basis of
UVic's extra two games played,
the top four teams are really in a
four-way tie for first.
A factor in UBC's favour is the
uncertain status of UVic forward
Jim Dudderidge. Dudderidge, a
major cog in the Viking machine,
was injured last weekend in games'
against Calgary.
"He's got a couple of fractures in
his jaw," said Mullins. "If he
doesn't play, and if we can keep
Dave Mulcahy away from the
boards, we should do all right."
Another thing the 'Birds will
have to do is get the ball to their big
men in close to the basket.
"At the beginning of the year, we
didn't use Dunlop and McKay
enough. We relied too heavily on
our outside shooting," said
Mullins. "We're a hell of a lot
better at it now, though."
Two wins by UBC would put
them in first place. They could still
be tied with either Alberta or
Calgary if either of those teams
win both its games on the weekend.
In any case, a UBC sweep would
tighten the Canada West race to
the breaking point, and set up what
could be the tightest, most tension-
filled finish in years.
Game times are 6:30 p.m. for the
women and 8:30 p.m., for the men
at War Memorial Gym Friday and
'Birds play
for lunch
The Thunderbirds soccer team
won't play for peanuts, but that
doesn't mean they won't play for
something else.
The 'Birds played for the Canada
West and the national titles last
term and won both of them.
Now they are really in for the big
money. They were last seen
playing their hearts out during
their lunch hour out there in the
snow, for the prize every soccer
star aims for — A HAMBURGER.
That was UBC coach Joe
Johnson's idea to relieve their
The 'Birds have not played a
single game since Jan. 14 and that
is a long, long time to be idle for
any soccer team.
The reason for this is quite
simple: the B.C. soccer league
does not think it very nice for the
players to play in the snow.
Maybe they should take a lesson
from the UBC Thunderbirds. The
'Birds have been training in the
snow for the past month. If the
'Birds can do it; why not the B.C.
In case you're wondering, the
'Birds won a hamburger each from
