Array UBC confirms
rec-fac funds
9.5 million for first phase
By Katherine Monk
After wavering on the issue for several weeks, the University
administration issued a letter Friday confirming for the first
time the allocation of $9.5 million towards the creation of rec-
K.D. Srivastava, UBC vice president of student services,
said the official decision to put the facility on the university's
fundraising campaign was made Thursday at midnight.
Until that time the University's commitment to the project
was only tentative, he said.
Because UBC president David
Strangway was out of town last week,
"we could not firm up the figures until
late in the evening," said Srivastava. He
said he did not think finalizing the figures Friday was too late for a referendum which would begin three days later.
He said he did not think
finalizing the figures
Friday was too late for a
referendum which would
begin three days later.
Srivastava issued the letter following an article in The Ubyssey which
quoted him as saving the University had
made no official commitment to rec-fac,
and the facility had never been on the
University's fundraising campaign.
In contrast, the AMS reported in
The Informant that "The University will
include the first half of the project in the
current overall major fundraising campaign." It was not until Thursday afternoon that AMS president Tim Bird realized the facility was not on the fundraising list.
Friday, Bird met with Srivastava
and with Todd Ablett, science undergraduate president and rec-fac committee chair, and Board of Governors student representative Bob Seeman to
write the letter released that afternoon.
"We drafted the letter together, and
K.D. signed it," said Bird.
In an interview with The Ubyssey
yesterday Srivastava went back on his
earlier statements and said rec-fac has
been on the fundraising campaign for
the last three weeks.
The University will
include the first half of
the project in the current
overall major
fundraising campaign.
"What I meant to say was that it was
not on the campaign and then bumped
off. That's why I said it in the interview—I didn't know what kind of commitments I could make," Srivastava
But Srivastava also said he had
spoken with Strangway the morning of
the initial interview to discuss the fundraising campaign and funding priorities.
The $9.5 million which the University has earmarked for the project is
still subject to the approval ofthe Board
of Governors. "That money is in the
campaign and Dr. Wyman (the chair of
the campaign) has approved the figure,
but any plans have to be approved by
the Board of Governors," Srivastava
said. "We may not need a $22 million facility."
Srivastava said he did not want to
make it look like the University just
wanted the students' money. "It's not a
question of just wanting the money. We
still have to raise the money for constructing it. How does one get money?"
Passing the referendum is just the first
step towards raising the necessary
funds, he said.
How does one get
money? Passing the
referendum is just the
first step towards
raising the necessary
funds ...
Bird wanted to point out that usually all funding details are sorted out
after a referendum, and that "they're
ahead of the game" with rec-fac.
If the University ultimately refuses to fund the facility students want,
added Bird, the funds will go into the
budget ofthe AMS-administered Capital Projects Acquisition Committee.
But Srivastava thinks it would not
be necessary for the AMS to refuse
funding altogether, since it's not "all
black and white," and there's always
room for change. If the referendum
passes, he said, a design committee
which has members of the user's committee, which has members of the rec-
fac committee, which has members of
the student body on it, would make the
All the controversy over rec-fac was
an unfortunate misunderstanding, Srivastava said, adding it was all the result of everyone's respective deadlines.
Srivastava also said he had not
been misquoted by The Ubyssey, and all
the quotes attributed to him were correct.
NDP tackles Tories
By Deanne Fisher
Weekend polls showing a new Liberal
gain did not daunt New Democrats
Johanna Den Hertog and Gerry Scott from
foraging for anti-free trade votes at UBC
Vancouver Quadra candidate Gerry
Scott began his
speech at the Student Union Building by comparing
the American market place to the Canadian economy.
"The law of the
jungle kind of market place that has
prevailed in the U.S.
has never worked
for Canada," said
Scott accused
his constituency rival, Liberal leader
John Turner, of opposing the Free
Trade Agreement
simply to capture
the anti-free trade
"The    Liberal
party got us into this mess," said Scott, "the
continental domination in Canada is the
legacy of Liberal government."
"(Turner) has flipped over to (the anti-
free trade) cause to save his leadership, to
save his party from destruction. But he
hasn't brought the whole party with him,"
said Scott, referring to at least one provincial Liberal's support of the agreement.
Den Hertog, a Vancouver Centre candidate and national NDP president, concentrated on the detrimental effect ofthe Free
Johanna den Hertog whistlestops at UBC
Trade Agreement on the services sector,
which primarily employs women.
"We must give all .American businesses
the status of being Canadian (under the
FTA)", said den Hertog, referring the concept of national treatment.
In response to a student who believed
that the Tories
were not the "incarnation of evil" and
did not understand
how they could support the FTA, den
Hertog blamed "a
great deal of large
corporate pressure"
for the Conservative "panic" that led
to the deal.
Answering another student's
question, den Hertog said education
was "still not specific under the
trade deal. But
services must be
given national
"I don't think we
can be assured that
we can maintain our standards (in education)," said den Hertog.
Scott added that educational tools such
as textbooks could be affected by the FTA.
"Because ofthe national treatment, it's difficult to maintain Canadianization (of textbooks) against market forces," he said.
Responding to a student in the Libertarian party, Scott said the national debt
"could be reduced substantially if we had a
government who had the backbone to collect
taxes from those who are most able to pay."

University lagging
on recycling issue
By I Iona Biro
A university produces a lot of
garbage. But unlike other universities, UBC does not have a recycling program.
The hurdle right now lies in
developing a comprehensive program of monitoring materials
that move through the campus according to Wayne Greene, UBC's
Director of Occupational Health
and Safety.
"There's no overall UBC policy that's been established for recycling," says Dr. Greene, "and
that I'm aware of, no one has that
particular responsibility".
"When you have several
hundred departments and literally thousands of people taking
possession of materials, it becomes very difficult to track
where these things have gone,
and that really is a big challenge,"
said Greene.
"But that's the way the legislation is going, and I personally
think that's the way we should be
handling material. We should get
into a cradle to grave type of
model," he said.
"When it comes in, it gets
inventoried, and that inventory is
maintained until it gets disposed
of, and that's our biggest challenge right now," he said.
There are currently two different routes for waste disposal at
UBC; one for chemical waste and
one for regular waste.
At the UBC Chemical Waste
Processing Facility, organic
chemical solvents are burned in
the Sub-X incinerator, and hazardous chemicals, which require
a very advanced incinerator, are
prepared for shipment to Ontario
where they are disposed of.
But the useful lifetime of the
Sub-X is past, says Greene:
"We're patching it up almost continuously."
But  Greene  says  that  al
though there are problems with
the incinerator, it has always
passed Ministry of Environment
standards and the frequency of
burns per year is very low.
While the hazardous chemicals are awaiting shipment to
Ontario, they are stored in a brand
new building that is fully sprin-
klered, and especially designed to
adhere to national safety regulations.
Greene says that the chance
of a toxic fire occurring on campus,
such as the one in St. Basile-Le-
Grand, is virtually nil.
A UBC Vice-Presidential
committee is now lookingat the replacement ofthe Sub-X, but also at
the future needs of UBC regarding waste disposal.
Green says some ofthe chemicals used in the chemistry department are recycled. "What they do
is recycle chemicals which people
have no further use for and resell
it to other individuals who may
need those chemicals".
Aside from chemical wastes,
UBC operates its own force for the
collection, compacting and transporting of garbage to Burns Bog.
And since UBC is part of the
Greater Vancouver Regional District disposal process, Greene
says, we have the same problems
that other people in the Lower
Mainland have in finding a suitable landfill or incinerator.
Simon Fraser University already has a recycling process in its
first stages. So far, the program
only provides for the recycling of
paper in certain university departments, says Shauna Baxter of
the B.C. Public Interest Research
But BCPIRG is currently
surveying other departments to
see if the paper recycling program
could be expanded to include all
faculty offices.
BCPIRG is also planning to
branch out into metal, plastic,
glass and other recycling programs, but initially they want to
ensure that the paper recycling
process is successful and running
smoothly before they add other
recyclables to their program.
The UBC Environmental Interest Group has been organizing
towards a similar goal of recycling
on UBC campus and is concerned
with the increasing use by UBC
Food Services of virtually indestructible styrofoam and plastic
disposable food containers.
Some of the obstacles in establishing a recycling program on
a university campus include finding adequate storage space for the
materials and the possibility of
opposition from the janitorial staff
or their union.
But Shauna Baxter says that
these problems can be overcome
with thorough research, an active
volunteer force, and consultation
with caretaking and waste disposal staff during the initial
stages of the program.
Figures that show savings
from recycling are impressive. At
University of Alberta, the recycling program actually provides
revenue for the university from
savings in transport costs,
dumpster rentals, and from the
sale of recyclables to recycling
But a professor at UBC who
wanted to set up a paper recycling
program in his department met
with resistance from the UBC
Purchasing Office.
The office insisted that any
revenues from recycling of materials go directly into university
funds. But at the same time, the
President's Office has not yet
appointed anyone to look into a
program of recycling on this campus.
Letter justifies new Informant
By Greg Davis
A fourth issue ofthe UBC
Informant was distributed
Saturday after reports that
about 5000 copies ofthe third
issue had disappeared from
The fourth issue included a letter from K.D. Srivastava, vice president of
student and academic services, confirming that the pro-*
posed recreation facility is
part of the University's development campaign. The
letter did noi appear in issue
No.3.. .
AMB president Tim Bird
said the new paper was published mainly to circulate
Srivastava's letter,
"Permission for a new run
of Informants was granted
because about half (of the 10
000 copy run) were missing,
but the main reason was the
letter," said Bird. 'The fact
that they were stolen did not
justify a new run, but the letter
Bird said the publication
was necessary to dispel misconceptions arising from the
Friday issue of The Ubyssey,
which included an article re
porting that Rec-Fac was not
a part of the
administration's development campaign.
The letter illustrated
what appeared in the grey
box on the cover of issue 3 in
The Informant, Bird said.
It is not known how
many copies of issue 3 disappeared, or who was respon-
sible. The Informants disappeared on the same day
stacks of Ubysseys were stolen from various locations
on campus, (See story this

Socially conscious engineers recycle Ubysseys     heather jenkins photo
Geers remove
Friday's Ubyssey
By Catherine Lu
Several engineering students
removed about 7,000 copies ofThe
Ubyssey shortly after they were
distributed at noon on Friday.
The engineers were protesting the front page article revealing
that the university's financial
support ofthe proposed recreation
facility had not yet been finalized.
But Alma Mater Society
president Tim Bird, who has condemned the engineers' tactics,
said The Ubyssey article "definitely made everybody realize the
necessity of a decision (from the
university and the development
committee)" regarding funding.
The newspapers disappeared
from the Sedgewick and Main libraries, the Buchanan building,
the SUB, and Gage towers.
The engineers unloaded
many of the copies in front of the
Ubyssey office later Friday afternoon.
Ubyssey staffer Jennifer
Lyall was standing outside the
Ubyssey office at about 3:25 p.m.
on Friday when approximately ten
engineers came up the stairs.
She then went into the Ubyssey office and locked the door.
The engineers, while chanting "We aren't sorry," proceeded
up the stairs and unloaded thousands of copies of The Ubyssey
which had been removed from
around the campus, said Lyall.
"They carried the papers up
and dumped them right at the
door, and then they left," she said.
About 1,500 copies of
Tuesday's Ubyssey, which covered
the Grad Students' opposition to
Weekend Test
at UBC
Call 222-8272
cSexton &
Rec Fac, also disappeared sometime last week.
Don Hallbom, president ofthe
Engineering Undergraduate Society, said the EUS did not sanction
stealing the newspapers, but he
felt it was "appropriate action."
He said the article appearing
on the front page of Friday's Ubyssey was "a blatant attempt by
Ubyssey staffers to support the
'No' vote for the Rec Fac referendum."
The story quoted UBC vice-
president K.D. Srivastava saying
the recreation facility was never
on the university's fundraising
campaign list and that funding for
rec fac was not guaranteed. Srivastava reversed his statements
at midnight on The Ubyssey's
press night, after the story had
been written.
"A lot of engineers believe
that they were trying to mislead
the student population," Hallbom
said, referring to The Ubyssey.
Hallbom thought the taking
of the papers was an indication
that "students don't believe their
student newspaper is representing them."
Kristine Edwards, publicity
representative of the EUS, said,
"The Ubyssey has been aggravating the entire campus by not representing the Rec Fac issue fairly."
But another engineer, who
wishes to remain anonymous,
condemned the action: "The very
few who took it upon themselves to
remove the copies did not have the
support of all the engineering students."

Birds squeak in
By Laura Farres and Paulina Tin
Narrowly missing first place
in the final Canada West Tournament this weekend, the UBC
Thunderbirds Women's Field
Hockey Team fell short of attaining the Canada West Title.
Although they easily defeated
the Universities of Calgary, Alberta, and Manitoba, UBC faced a
must win situation in the final
game against the University of
Victoria, and only managed a
Saturday, the 'Birds were
flying high as they downed the
University of Calgary 2-0. The
'Birds dominated throughout,
with constant pressure in the Calgary zone. Penny Cooper and Jennifer Vanstone scored the game's
only goals.
In the second game ofthe day,
UBC maintained their strength by
defeating the University of Alberta 3-0. The game was a physical
one with goals scored by Jennifer
Vanstone, Robyn McCreery and
Tricia Barker.
Sunday morning the 'Birds
faced the University of Manitoba
and rose to the occasion with a 4-0
victory. Jennifer Vanstone, Candy
Thompson, and Melanie Slade(2)
were the goal scorers.
Fourth year veteran Robyn
McCreery was pleased with the
team's performance: "It really
feels like we are playing better
together with each game," she
Both the 'Birds and UVic had,
identical records coming into the
tournament, but due to the escalating point system over three
tournaments, the T-Birds' only
way of catching UVic would be a
"I was nervous going into the
game, but I knew the team was
ready for it. We had been waiting
for this opportunity all week," said
second year player Sheena Scott.
The game was fast-paced and
physical from the start with strong
defensive performances from both
sides. The momentum swayed
back and forth which made for an
exciting action-packed contest.
The game ended in a scoreless
draw—UBC falling .50 points
short of a Canada West title.
This was the last year for the
escalating point system. Next
year, in the event of identical records, the final game will be decided
in sudden-death overtime by penalty shots.
UBC captured four of the
Canada West All-star awards with
Penny Cooper, Jennifer Vanstone,
and Captains Laura Farres and
Melanie Slade being named to the
All-star team. Top scorer for the
Canada West season was Melanie
With UBC's close second
place finish, they managed to capture a wildcard berth in this year's

'Birds ice Cougars
By Laurie Mcguiness
UBC's varsity hockey team
scored a pair of weekend victories
over the University of Regina, 11-
1 Friday night and 7-6 in
Saturday's rematch.
Friday's rout was highlighted
by Mike Ikeda's three-goal and
three-assist performance as the T-
Birds won easily.
Saturday was a different
story. The game was rough and
Regina defensemen hammered
the smaller UBC forwards at every opportunity.
But to the T-Birds' credit they
joe altwasser photo    U of A.
did not back down.
Regina was also guilty of
plenty of late hits and cheap shots
after the whistle which may have,
been a result of Friday's humiliating loss.
UBC had plenty of reasons to
start a fracas, but coach Dave
Hindmarch, who filled in behind
the bench for Terry O'Malley, kept
his players disciplined, and the T-
Birds exhibited it on the scoreboard as the team scored three
power-play goals.
Both teams were in early season form offensively as numerous
scoring chances were missed
throughout the game. UBC had a
an armful of three on two's where
passes bounced off skates to the
wrong players.
UBC's Scott Fearns, in particular, was in cold a couple of
times, only to be stymied, but he
buried any possible criticism by

Fujian captures tourney
By Joe Altwasser
The Fujian volleyball team
from the Peoples Republic of
China won the gold medal at the
Thunderball tournament at War
Memorial this past weekend.
Fujian, a powerhouse in the
Chinese National Volleyball
league, took the championship
match easily with scores of 15-4,
15-7, and 16-14 over the University of Manitoba Bisons.
The Fujian players, students
back at home, gave their opponents a lesson in volleyball. The
provincial team was undefeated
throughout the tournament. The
Chinese squad will remain in
Canada for the next two weeks to
play a five game series against the
Canadian national team.
Coach Xu Wen Xin, speaking
through a translator, said he was
pleased with his players effort
during the tournament. Xu was
slightly disappointed with the
concentration lapse in the last
game ofthe final which saw Manitoba storm back from a five point
deficit to tie the game at 14 before
the Fujian squad regained their
Xu diplomatically noted the
Canadian team's defensive style
was good.
In contrast to the contentment displayed by Xu, coach Dale
Ohman of UBC was not impressed
with the fourth place finish ofthe
T-Birds. The Thunderbirds lost
the bronze medal match to the
University of California at Santa
Barbara Goucho's 15-1, 13-15,15-
10, and 15-13.
Ohman placed the blame di-
rectly on the team veterans who,
^"did not come to play this morning."
Ohman was proud of the T-
Birds' play in Saturday's semi-final despite their loss in a gruelling
five game marathon to the University of Manitoba.
"Last night we had a major
breakthrough, the loss was positive, but that was dependent on
our play today - but we blew it,"
said an upset Ohman.
Ohman complimented the
play ofthe younger players on the
UBC travels to Winnipeg this
coming weekend for the Bison
Invitational Tournament. The
'Birds may be without the services

Bukowski who is sidelined with

Censored... heehee
There is a news blackout about campaign material.
Nothing can come out about... you know ... until after the
you know whats close. So we thought we could talk about
something completely different.
Have you ever noticed that people write on bathroom
walls what they would never say in public to anyone? We
think there should be a campaign to make people sign what
they write, or else flush it down the sewer where it belongs.
And what is this fascination with fireworks on
Hallowe'en? They go bang. They light up the sky for a
fraction of a second. And they haven't changed since the
first time we saw them when we were two years old, and
cried because ofthe noise. Well, people still think Wheel of
Fortune is a good show, and some of them even cry—there's
no telling what's inside some people's cerebral cortex.
Which toothpaste is the best anyway?
Do you know that the woman who did the headache
medicine commercials with the door to door interviews, to
find out how many people said "yes" in Inuvik gota real job
as a newscaster. She used to be an actress. Still is. Hee.
We think Saskatchewan exists to make even dull
places like Vancouver seem exciting.
What does "it's not over until it's over" mean? And why
do we insist on interviewing athletes—isn't it a painful
process for everyone involved? Why does Don Cherry act
like a living prune? Get out of our bowels Don.
And hockey. The game is to get the puck in the net. Not
the stick in the mouth., or is it?
Orifice after orifice. We forget our belly buttons are
really weird after we turn seven. Look at your navel—put
your finger in it—smell. You forgot your navel was there,
didn't you?
Why does Bill Vander Zalm want to be premier? If God
had wanted him to be a leader, Bill would have brains
instead of a smile. But then again, we elected him. We must
have nice smiles too. Heehee.
And what ever happened to Pizza Pops? Why is it that
when microwaves finally become affordable, there are no
pizza pops to be found, huh? Heehee. Or Ding Dongs —
Mrs. Williams has taken over the market, the scheming...
What about Pez candy... why do we eat something
coming out of someone's neck ..even if it is Popeye's? (Pop-
eye? — a semiotician could work for years on that.) And the
name, where the hell did they get it, maybe Murray Pezzim
knows, maybe not. Why do they sell it up in Eaton's
Bargain Annex with the cheapo rubber boots? That your
dad would buy just to shovel the walk in the winter... yah,
right dad. The salt? You just wanted to embarrass us.
And why do we get so much pleasure—speaking of
salt—of pouring it on slugs in the spring and watching
them melt away? Neato! Heehee... Too bad we can't get rid
of over-zealous politicians that way... oops. Uh, yoo hoo
BILLIE— free ticket to Salt Lake City, real cheap!
Oh, and our ex-entertainment editor, Martin Dawes,
recently had some clever words describing his unemployment: "Jobs are markedly evident, but I'm evidently not
marketable." Damn artsie, he should get a haircut. And a

"Aaarrgh, yah old goat," spat a wizened, white-haired Chris Wiesinger et a
doddering Mandel Ngan, "pass me summa dat dere heroin." Katherine Monk roiled
over in her wheelchair, on weekend leave from the Old Folkes Home, palms
outstretched. Chris grabbed the heroin and proceeded to try to make tea out of it
in the middle of his endaevors, he forgot what he was doing and staggered out of the
room, muttering something about the younger generation. "Goddam hippies," he
muttered. Mandel Ngan used his cane to snag a huge bottle of whiskey which he
proceeded to share with the old crone Olivia Zanger, who was trying to mix cocaine
into her Ovaltine. Jennifer Lyall, varicose veins protruding invitingly, jabbed a needle
full of club soda and MDA into her arm and cackled wildly, screeching something
about huge bats coming out of the shrimp sandwiches. The old ones all looked on
enviously. More cackling—they all scrambled for the used needle. Jabbing it wildly
into various parts of their decrepit bodies. Chung Wong, wise as ever, tried to explain
to a grouchy old Steve Chan, addicted to photo fixer, that his companions had all
decided in their formative years at The Ubyssey. However in his old age Steve had
decided that fixer did not smell very pleasant and started doing it Intravenouly. Avery
senile Deanne Fisher mooed at Cathy Lu who by now had also become a addict, and
was also at the home for old Ubyssey hacks. Greg Davis had become a politician and
stoped his use of Illegal pharmaceuticals early on, at the bequest of ex-pusher turned
campaign manager Heather Jenkins. Also at the rest homes for old hacks were Alex
Johnson who had become addicted to the Butthole Surfers, and Ted Aussem who by
now had become a anarco-communist at the ripe age of 97 and was plotting the
overthrow of everything. Their main goal, professed spokesperson and ex-AMS hack-
turned-leader-of-old-staffers Tim Bird, was to choke on their own vomit and not have
to worry about paying off their staggering drug debts, which they began to accumulate
after retirement "Whattare dey gonna do," leered Joe Altwasser, 'sue us? Howie
Lee cackled viciously-whether at Joe or something hallucinated, no one knew.

The recent vote by Student Council against the
Board of Governors' stand
regarding the 1990 Gay
Games has caused some
controversy among certain
members of Library and
Archival Studies Students
Association. Of eleven
Council members who opposed the motion, I was the
only one to speak in debate.
I could just as easily have
remained anonymous. If I
had done so, in all likelihood
nobody would have complained.
In spite of the fact that
this issue had received considerable press coverage, no
LASSA member expressed
any concerns to me. Likewise after the Ubysseys's
report, no LASSA member
made objections until after I
myself raised the situation
in our student lounge.
LASSA has never taken an
official stand on this or any
similar issue.
Some LASSA members
have proposed that as their
representative to Council I
should always vote the way
the majority of LASSA
members would vote. Such a
situation would amass absolute power in the hands of
the majority and give no
representation to the minority. LASSA is no more
unanimous about the Gay
Games than society in general is.
The independence of
the vote of each Council
member must remain inviolable. Council members are
in a unique position to debate motions and to learn
facts about issues which are
not generally known to their
constituents. I always vote
my conscience on issues,
having considered the opinions of my constituents and
the arguments raised in
debate at Council meetings.

Hypocrisy and hatred

new standard for intolerance. These hetero-champions

Let's look at their confused, sophomoric arguments.
Sep implicitly likens homosexuality to foot-fetishism
and beastiality (wonder where his bias lies?), and tells us
that gays can only gain "exceptance" (brilliant Freudian
slip: ie to be excepted) to heterosexual society (I didn't
know "societies* are sexual) by assimilation. But equality doesn't mean assimilation (or integration, whkhis a
euphemism for assimilation); it means TOLERANCE
and ACCEPTANCE of DIFFERENCE (uppercase for a
real telling point, eh Sep?). Or does racial and religious
equality, for example, tnean that all Hindus, Moslems
and Jews must become Christian, white and male?
(Those last two would be hard, n'est- ce pas?)
Now Christian's 'thesis': 1) it's NOT wrong to discriminate against homosexuals (?}; 2) "Homosexuals
seek publicity" and like *to show off" (??); 3} society
needn't extend its "generous tolerance" of homosexuality (???) to include providing gays with a political forum.
Incredible. Society is neither tolerant nor generous,
as these letters demonstrate. As for "showing off," just
look at the Engineers ongoing pathetic display of
desparate, caricatured, macho heterosexuality on campus (200 drunk, brawling, mud-covered Engine-ears
chanting misogynist slogans in front of Sedgewick last
week). The xiniversity allows, even encourages these
"traditions," providing an on going political forum for the
advertisement of heterosexual "normalcy." Campus life
is one big billboard/beer commercial for heterosexuality
(eg. The Pit; the Engineers; the REFUSAL ofthe Gay
Games). To deny that these hlatantly political aspects of
campus sexuality exist and to condemn the Gay Games
for their politicizationis absolute nonsense. Worse, it is
hypocrisy and hate.
Universities are said to produce the best and the
Scary. Very scary.

It appears that last Friday some executive members of the Engineering
Undergraduate Society took
it upon themselves to decide
what their members should
be reading and went around
scooping up bundles of the
Ubyssey as they were delivered. Thanks, guys. I appreciate your attempt to protect
me from newspaper articles
you find objectionable.
I would appreciate it
even more if next time you
submitted your own article,
or distributed a pamphlet
with your point of view, or
otherwise took part in public debate rather than pulling off a juvenile stunt
which convinces nobody,
least of all those people you
supposedly represent, that
you have any valid point to
make at all.

and a simple question: Do

facilities or not?
I was very disappointed
when I read the issue of The

President Robert Beynon.
In my mind this treatment
was uncalled for. I feel very
badly for what has happened to Rob here. He didn't
deserve this. Everyone is
entitled to their opinion.
I have also been disappointed with the lack of
Ubyssey coverage on the
Rec Centre this term. This
Rec Centre proposal and
this referendum are major
events on campus. Just as
the Free Trade issue is a
major event in Canada.
How could a campus
newspaper not take notice
until a week before the vote?
In my opinion you reported
too little, too late. Imagine if
the Globe and Mail forgot to
report on the Federal Election.

He felt the engineers "were
just trying to do something they
believed in", but that they had
gone above and beyond the call of
duty with their action.
"It's taking censorship laws
into their own hands, and I don't
think that's healthy," he said.
"They're so into the rec centre
that I think they used poor judgement in their overeaction to what
The Ubyssey had printed," said
The Ubyssey article raised
questions about university funding of the project and probably
gave Rec Fac the clout it needed to
be finalized on the University's
fundraising campaign list, according to Bird.
Bird said the referendum is a
way to indicate the level of student
support for a recreation facility.
"In a political light, the referendum is a huge indicator to the
University of what it should be
doing," he said.
"Unfortunately each student
(wants) to know exactly what
they're going to get for their 30
dollars," he said.
"Ironically, the rec centre is
the only project that is now guaranteed to be on the fundraising
campaign," said Bird.
"What I'm let down about
is...the overenthusiasm that takes
(students) a step or two overboard
with an issue like this," he said.

THE UBYSSEY/7 Birds foiled in playoff bid
By Doug Bryson
All hopes of making the playoffs were dashed Saturday night
as the Football 'Birds lost 29-22 in
their last regular season game to
their perennial rivals, number one
ranked University of Calgary
The first half was characterized by big plays and missed opportunities-big plays by Calgary
and missed opportunities by the
This was a rebuilding year for
the "Birds, which means that although they had a fairly strong
team, there were holes left by a
number of players not returning
from last year-holes in the shape
of relatively inexperienced players
having to take over spots for which
they are not quite ready.
Having watched a great deal
of film, the Calgary coaching staff
was able to exploit these weaknesses and avoid UBC's strengths.
The first half was a wash as
far as the T-Birds were concerned.
The Dinos scored two gargantuan
touchdowns in the first quarter,
one an 89-yard pass and run and
the other a 93-yard punt return.
The half-time score was 22-5
in the Dinos favour after another
46-yard pass and run TD and two
out of three missed field goal attempts from UBC kicker Mike
The third quarter went much
the way ofthe first two, with UBC
largely ineffectual and Calgary
scoring another aerial touchdown.
Dinos quarterback Bob Torrence
put in a near perfect day completing 20 of 27 for 426 yards and three
But in the fourth quarter,
UBC quarterback Jordan Gagner
scrambled for 30 yards setting up
a four-yard Jim Stewart touchdown which breathed life into the
"Birds and sucked the Dino's energy.
The "Birds got the ball back
with good field position and
Gagner completed an endzone
pass to Bellefontaine which was
called back on a penalty. He put
another one up for Keller who
dropped it in the endzone and finally hit the third one to "Old
Faithful" Tom Vlasic. The score
was now 29-19 in favour of the
Dino's but all the momentum was
with the "Birds.
A successful third-down fake
punt pass to defensive back Mark
Nykolaichuck set up a 33-yard
Bellefontaine field goal which put
the "Birds only a touchdown behind with four minutes left on the
clock. On their next possession,
Gagner again set the momentum
with a 42-yard scramble which
had everyone in the house out of
their seats. Some of that yardage
was called back on a downfield
penalty but that was made up with
another Tom Vlasic reception to
the Calgary 10-yard line.
UBC had one more chance
before the game and their season
was to come to an end, but they
were not able to capitalize.
Runners make nationals

Both of UBC's cross-country
teams have qualified for the CIAU
National Championships.
The women were guaranteed
a spot in the final after finishing
first in Victoria this weekend. And
the men, who finished second to
the University of Manitoba Bisons, have also qualified due to a
vote Monday morning between
the five zone champions—Manitoba from the West, Western and
Toronto from Ontario, Laval from
Quebec, and Dalhousie from the
According   to   UBC   coach
Marek Jedrezek, the five schools
agreed to let UBC in because
"Canada West is the strongest
conference. Both Manitoba and
ourselves have a chance to win."
The Victoria competition on
the weekend saw UBC battling for
top honours against the universities of Victoria, Saskatchewan,
Lethbridge and Manitoba.
But the UBC team, over the
past few weeks, have suffered
from injuries, colds, and unavailability.
UVic's Cathy Dargie put a
distance between herself and the
rest of the field in the 5,000 me
ters, eventually winning in 18:03.
UBC's Theresa Rind opened
up with a drive of her own that
split UVic's leading trio of runners, finishing in third with a fine
18:34. It pulled the rest of the
women's team to an upset victory
over UVic by the score of 30-32,
and the Canada West Championship. The Universities of Lethbridge and Saskatchewan finished
in the runner-up spots.
The men's 10,000 meter race
proved to be a spirited battle between the Universities of B.C. and
UBC runners Shane Bilodeau
and Larry Nightengale pulled the
field of 36 athletes through an
opening mile under five minutes.
Passing 5,000 meters in
15:30, the lead pack was down to
three athletes and it continued to
pull away.
UVic's Gary Barber sweetened the day for his team with a
strong sprint to the finish, defeating runner-up Darren Klassen of
Manitoba 30:54 to 30:56.
UBC's Rob Lonergan was the
team's top place finisher in fourth
place with a time of 31:19. It was
the University of Manitoba that
prevailed in a very close competition, 30-38 over UBC. UVic was
third, with Lethbridge and Saskatchewan trailing.
