Array Students rally, dance, shout
More than 1,000 angry students demonstrated in the
streets of Vancouver Friday to protest education cutbacks.
Waving placards and chanting, "They say cutback,
we say fight back!" students from Douglas, Langara,
Kwantlen, and Capilano colleges, the University of
Victoria and Simon Fraser University marched from
outside the Queen Elizabeth theatre to Robson Square.
About 300 students from UBC joined the event.
What participants thought:

At Robson Square, speakers blamed premier Bill
Bennett and his Social Credit government for post-
secondary underfunding. "Governments are flushing
education down the tubes," charged Sophia Hanafi,
Pacific representative from the Canadian Federation
of Students. "Students are not going to buy into this
game of restraint.
"Politicians are making backroom decisions about
education without asking the community. It's not going to be tolerated anymore. We are going to make
noise," Hanafi told the cheering crowd.
Students are not going to be forced to suffer
through these "knee-jerk" reactions from the government, she said. "We're mad as hell and we're not going to take it anymore."
Bill Tieleman, UBC students for an accessible
education spokesperson, urged students to vote out
the government if the underfunding situation does not
"If we are to have a British Columbia that has a
diversified economy so that a poor lumber market does
not shut down the entire province, a B.C. where
education is a positive benefit to society — not
something that takes second place to stadiums and
giveaway coal deals — then we must force this government to clean up its act," he said.
Langara student association vice president Dan
Cross complained that the economic slump hits
students the hardest. "We're being pinched first, last
and all the way through the middle. Shaking off the
dust of 10 years of apathy, students will be heard in
parliament," he said.
Representatives from the B.C. Teachers Federation,
the Canadian Union of Public Employees and the
Association of College and University Employees expressed support and extended their sympathy to the
They said they too are also affected by cutbacks
and wculd unite with the students in their fight against
the government.
Between speakers the demonstrators sang, chanted,
and waved their fists in the air.
A group of students staged a skit and danced. One
dressed up as Bennett gave out scraps of money to
poor, kneeling students, and carried a big ax with
"B.C. Place" written on it. After Bennett slashed programs to death, the students rose up and overthrew
him. The crowd cheered.
The march and rally were part of a national week of
protest sponsored by CFS.

Singing and chanting women
took back the night Friday when
they marched across the Burrard
Street bridge and rallied against cutbacks in funding for rape crisis centres.
More than 500 women, men and
children joined the evening protest,
which started 7 p.m. at the Vancouver Planetarium and concluded
with a rally at Sunset beach.
The protest focused on the controversial issue of confidentiality
for sexually assaulted women. The
provincial government wants the
B.C. Coalition of Rape Crisis Centres to open its files on rape victims
who have sought support from its
member groups. The coalition refuses and the government has with-
Native identity dented
The federal government's attempt to assimilate all native people into
Canadian society never succeeded because of their overwhelming; desire to
maintain their ideals, a B.C. Supreme Court justice said Monday.
The policy of prime minister Pierre Trudeau's government was "to erase
the history, language, and philosophy (of native peoples) and replace it
with our own," Justice Thomas Berger told 80 people in Law 101.
For more than 10 years the government tried to force this assimilation by
encouraging vocational training, education and similar programs. But
native people tried to preserve their cultural identity, Berger said.
The government tried to make native culture a "remnant of the past,"
Berger said.
"Individual identity depends on collective identity," Berger said.
In 1969 Trudeau said "No society can be built on a society that might
have been," in rejecting native land claims, Berger quoted.
Trudeau changed his mind in 1973 when he said the federal government
had a responsibility to settle land claims, Berger said.

drawn its $151,000 grant.
The government has offered the
grant to other women's groups who
will open their files, but so far none
have stepped forward.
Speakers from various women's
groups pledged support for the coalition and called on the provincial
government to continue funding the
program. A petition demanding the
government reinstate the funds was
also circulated.
Coalition spokesperson Val Ogle
said rape crisis centres have a 10
year history in B.C. "The coalition
has worked so effectively the Socreds want to cut our funding."
Ogle said, "There's still an overwhelming need for rape crisis centres."
She pointed out one woman is
raped every 17 minutes in Canada
and rape is still legal in marriages.
"We know every man is brought up
to believe he can rape, beat or batter us," she said. "Rape is political.
Rape is a form of social conditioning. Men continue to hold power
through the implicit threat that women can always be raped."
She called on all people to protest
the cutbacks of rape relief centres.
"The Socred solution to the economic crisis is off women's backs,"
she said.

STUDENT MOCKS PREMIER in Langara theatre group's satire on So-
cred's policy of stealing money from post-secondary education for mega-
projects like BC Place. Friday's rally attracted more than 1,000 students
who rallied against cutbacks, increasing tuition fees and decreasing quality
of education.
Davis slams visas
Less than a year and a half after
his first controversial attempt,
Social Credit MLA Jack Davis is
reopening his campaign to impose
differential fees upon visa students.
In a letter to the North Shore
News published March 14, Davis
(S.C.-North Van Capilano) claims
that charging visa students full cost
fees will save B.C. between $20 and
$30 million annually, and free up
space for "our own young people."
But statistics from the three B.C.
universities indicate that the savings, if any, cannot approach the
$20 million mark, and Davis offers
no sources for his figures and comments. "The scam that these B.C.
educators are engaged in is selling
our low fee university education to
well-to-do foreigners," says the letter. "We'll foot the bill for
everyone's university education
regardless of their wealth or where
they come from.
"If our young people are slow in
signing (at university) they will find
all the places taken. Result: native
British Columbians with a grade 12
diploma may be turned away while
foreign students whose registration
is organized for them are attending
classes in record numbers."
But there are only 1,863 visa
students attending the three B.C,
universities (832 at UBC or 3.48 per
cent of the student population, 213
at the University of Victoria or 2.14
per cent, and 818 at Simon Fraser
University or 10.1 per cent. And
there are less than 1,000 in the community college system).
UVic's Jim Currie, a presidential
assistant and head analyst, said the
total subsidy to visa students could
be estimated by multiplying the
number of students by $5,000,
which is the approximate subsidy
per B.C. student. Under this
method, the top limit for visa student subsidies would be $15 million.
Currie said studies to provide accurate figures have not taken place.
SFU's John Chase, an executive
assistant to the president and head
of that university's statistics and
analysis branch, also said Davis'
claims were unsupportable.
"If the visa students weren't
there, would their spaces be filled
by Canadian students? I suspect
not," he said Monday. "How much
would costs be reduced? No one
Davis, a UBC Rhodes scholar,
has advocated the imposition of differential fees for almost two years,
despite cold rebuffs from the
Socreds. A report written in late
1980, intended for discussion in the
legislature but never heard, caused
a furor when it was instead
distributed to university heads and
boards of governors.
In that report, he said foreign
students are getting a "free ride" at
Canadian universities and prevent
"our own people" from attending.
Several groups charged Davis was

Land claims should not be
measured only in terms of land, or
money, but should include natural
resources, education, and other
aspects of society, he added.
Berger applauded UBC's native
Indian teacher education program.
Before 1973, 13 native people
graduated from B.C. universities in
education. B.C. universities are
now graduating 13 students a year

designed to return the native people
to teach in their communities, he
Berger said when the CBC in
1975 allocated an hour of prime
time radio in the north to native
programming in six native
languages, the all-white government
of the Northwest Territories passed
a motion deploring the act.
Since then, native people's access
to communications has improved,
Berger said. Recently the Canadian
Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission approved
a native programming channel, he
"Native people are seeking access
to the socio-economic system,"
Berger said.

Rally a warning to Socreds
They came in all sizes.
College and university students,
high school kids playing hooky
from classes, unionists, parents and
curious passersby made up the more
than 1,000 people protesting education cutbacks in Robson Square Friday.
Most of them seemed pleased
with the event, judging from a random Ubyssey poll of demonstrators
and spectators.
"I'm very impressed. It's about
time something like this happened," said a Simon Fraser University
student who declined to give his
name. "The government is going to
have to listen. They've been sleeping too long."
A UBC student said she considered the rally a success, but was disappointed with UBC's turnout.
"It's been a really strong demonstration, the biggest I've ever taken
part in," said Peggy Gardner, arts
2. "I was hoping there would be
more from UBC. You'd think with
25,000 people there it would be a
better turnout."
About 300 people from UBC attended the rally and the earlier
march from the Queen Elizabeth
"We had eight buses leave UBC.
Our delegation was over a block
long. We made up about one third
of the march," said Margaret Copping, who helped organize the rally.
And other rally organizers were
satisfied with the turnout.
"I'm very happy with SFU's
turnout. We had over 100 people
here," said Doug Fleming, SFU
student society executive member.
"It really shows a strong and independent student movement is taking
Bill Tieleman, of the UBC-based
students for accessible education
and a speaker at the rally, considered the demonstration to be a warning to the provincial government.
"There is a coalition of teachers
and students working together for
the first time since 1972, when they
got rid of (premier) W.A.C. Bennett. The possibility of that happening again is certainly there," Tieleman said.
"It's certainly a warning to the
Socreds," he said.
The large number of high school
students at the rally and march
seemed to have come from UBC's
open house.
Karen Ellwood, a grade 12 student at Kitsilano High School, said
the rally was "great" and was worried that education cutbacks hurt
her chances of attending university.
"These cutbacks definitely
threaten my chances of going to
UBC. I'm going to take a year off
so it's going to be even more difficult," she said.
Ellwood said the cutbacks issue
was being discussed more in the
high schools. "They're (teachers)
really bringing it in to the classroom. Students are really upset
about it. It's too bad kids don't understand more. They could do
something about it."
But while most students were enthusiastic about the rally, some
passersby were not as pleased.
"You all make me sick!" shouted
an elderly woman at the crowd as
she walked past.
"I worked for 10 cents an hour
when I was your age. I survived and
suffered. I was never able to get
past grade 10 but I educated myself
and you should too!" yelled a man
in his fifties to a group of students
after the rally.
But a Vancouver policeman said
he was "very happy" about the way
the rally was organized.
"They were just a wonderful
group, very well organized. I'm not
surprised at all though," said staff
sergeant Bill Marshall, who added
that he had two sons in college.

Student council approved the
publication of two summer
newspapers Wednesday night, provided neither require an operating
subsidy from council.
The Ubyssey hopes to publish
once a week over the spring and
summer sessions. This is contingent
on obtaining a federal government
summer employment grant. The
other planned summer newspaper,
the Conventioneer, is a proposed
bimonthly aimed at the large convention market each summer at
UBC. Its goal is to inform conventioners about the services offered in
"The Conventioneer is basically
an advertising brochure, with little
or no editorial content," said Cliff
Steward, Alma Mater Society vice
According to AMS general
manager Charles Redden, the Conventioneer will make a profit. Some
council representatives criticised
Redden for going ahead on the project without either council's
knowledge or approval.
"My concern is that there has
been breach of this council's
prerogatives," said arts representative Jon Gates.
After the meeting Shaffin
Shariff, project coordinator for
The Summer Ubyssey said council
could have done more to ensure
that a student paper is published
over the summer.

To help in the fight against

Monday. "We're bringing this motion to our membership at the
March 17 and 24 meetings."
Yakel said the staff has expressed
non-confidence in Thom on two
previous occasions, and that while
there are many reasons for the call
for trusteeship, the move is mostly
"a basic expression of dissatisfaction."
BCIT is currently facing a $3
million deficit, and committees are
discussing ways to reduce the
budget in the same way UBC's
retrenchment committee worked.
One of the proposals department
deans and education vice president
Drug Settic have raised, calls for the
dismissal of 23 instructors (12 from
the English department and 11 from
the business division).
But added to the economic problems prompting the call for
trusteeship is staff dissatisfaction
with Thorn's leadership.
"The staff expressed non-
confidence in Gordon Thom in
good budget years," Thom said.
"Now, in difficult times, we're going to need leadership to get us

and couldn't be reached for comment, but Settic said trusteeship

said, adding that both staff and
students would be deprived of any
input into the running of BCIT.
sponsored speaking tour in August,
1980 when he applied for refugee
status. He was arrested at the Canadian border in January, 1982 when
he returned from Nicaragua after
attending a conference for journalists and students there.
In 1980, federal immigration and
employment minister Lloyd Axworthy and solicitor general Robert
Kaplan signed a certificate, issued
under the immigration act, stating
that Regalado's presence in Canada
is "deterimental to the national interest."
Section 19-1 prohibits the entry
of spies, criminals, and persons
who will "engage in or instigate the
subversion by forces of any government," while in Canada.
According to his lawyer Noel
Saint Pierre, Regalado did not have
a criminal record in El Salvador.
Regalado's internment was based
on his membership in El Salvador's
National Democratic Union, an
organization that is politically opposed to the current civilian-
military junta headed by Napoleon
Duarte. (The UDN is an offshoot of
the Democratic Revolutionary
Front that is currently waging a civil
war against the government forces).
According to Saint-Pierre,
$20,000 bail had originally been
posted as security against
Regalado's release. Although the
bond is not currently deemed
necessary, Regalado's movement
will be restricted.
Regalado and Saint-Pierre were
jubuliant about the recent ruling.
"We are extremely happy," said
Saint-Pierre who added that Canadian immigration had done a shocking about-face.
Regalado received his deportation order on Feb. 17 at a hearing
termed "Draconian" by human
rights activists. The journalist was
not allowed to testify at his own
Although the decision represents
some sympathy towards Regalado,

is a separate issue from his deporta-,
tion order.

Men hate nukes, too
In the March 2 issue of The
Ubyssey, the article "WANT Determined to End Oppression," referring to the organization Women
Against Nuclear Technology, gave
me the wrong impression. I understand that this organization, as
described by Arnette Clough, is to
fight nuclear technology. However,
it seems that her group's biggest
fight is against men. Yes, that's
right, WANT seems determined to
not only fight against nuclear power
as a crutch toward their biggest
fight — men.
I have problems digesting all of
this. You see, I want to end nuclear
technology as much as ANYBODY
does. I am a male. I have always
been for women's rights. I have
read The Second Sex, by Simone de
Beauvoir and I agree wholeheartedly with the fight women have
against male dominance. I think
there should be a woman premier or
prime minister as soon as possible,
and women are constantly exploited
. . . But, when I read "If our
societies were matriarchal, women
would not have developed this
technology in the first place . . ."I
was amazed at her simplistic way of
blaming men for the way society is,
in such a short phrase.
If women were in power since the
beginning of time, maybe we would
not be in "radioactive" trouble as
we are now. Who knows? In my
opinion, one cannot say with such
positiveness as Annette Clough
does, that man has caused us to be
on the eve of destruction.
When I read along further and
found: "She can hardly contain the
anger she feels toward men. Her
steely brown eyes convey that she
will no longer tolerate the oppression of women," this statement is
as unfair as men have been to
women in the past. For the impression I received when I read this was
that I (who have never been against
women, and have always been
against nuclear technology) am getting blamed because of my sex, for
the out of control state that nuclear
power is in.
I can't help thinking that because
men have ripped off women for so
long, this person assumes that men
can only create such bad things as
nuclear power instead of stop them.
What about hundreds and thousands of men and women together,
who take part in nuclear demonstrations, concerts, and benefits,
etc? Men also have a history of the
peace movement across the world.
In my opinion, Annette Clough
and her feminist group WANT,
have detained the wrong impression
of men and nuclear technology.
Men WANT to stop nuclear power
too. I would, however, suggest she
and others in her group run for
positions of power so they can do
something more active against
nuclear technology, than complain
about how man's existence will end
the world.
It appears that with groups like
WANT, the cause of important
issues, like the fight against nuclear
technology, are missed. The only
thing discovered is a fight against all
men, which will not do the least bit
to stop nuclear power.
Simply put, WANT is an indirect
attack on nuclear technology which
only proved to be a waste of time.
That is, more time is spent at looking for who is to blame than
fighting the actual cause. WANT is
an embarrassment to legitimate
anti-nuclear groups like Students
for Peace and Mutual Disarmament
at UBC.

Rag in poor taste'  ]
Open letter to engineering undergraduate society
president Lance Balcom:
To the general public, the engineering students at UBC appear to
be part of e engineering profession. Their actions, particularly when
in poor taste, reflect upon the profession.
The law, medicine, commerce, arts and other students on campusi
identify with their chosen professions. To them the EUS and the
engineering students are the engineering profession. Their perception
of you will color their thinking and attitudes towards engineers for
the rest of their lives. A publication such as the 1982 Red Rag, produced under the auspices of the EUS, draws unwelcome criticism to
both engineering students and members of the engineering profession.
The Council of the Association of Professional Engineers of B.C.
expresses disapproval, concern and disappointment that the EUS executive has allowed the engineering student body, the applied science
faculty and the engineering profession to be so disparaged.
Our Council has been informed that, on behalf of the EUS executive, you have stated "there will be no more publications of this
nature emanating from the engineering students at UBC." We commend you on this approach and trust the EUS will honor your commitment.

scholar to be the one Social Credit hack who is bent upon financially barring visa students from this province.
In both attempts to sensationalize the "threat" of foreign students,
Davis harps on the theme that visa students prevent "our own children"
from attending post-secondary educational institutions. His first attempt
paid particular attention to Asian students, an attitude that was picked up
and magnified by CTV's W5 episode The Campus Giveaway.
In both instances, students of Oriental ancestry were, to all intents and
purposes, treated as foreign students regardless of their nationality. In
CTV's case, the lying was so blatant the network was forced to retract the
episode after nationwide protest.
But Davis, after laying low for a year with a cool rebuff from the Socreds
on the issue, is still trying. Now it's not the country of origin that's the
problem, it's the fact that there are thousands and thousands of the "foreigners" freeloading off the wonderful taxpayers.
After two years, it would be nice if Davis would at least start taking the
time to check his facts. It might justify his time at Oxford.
University statisticians are baffled at his figures and conclusions. And if
Davis' aim is to make post-secondary education a WASP preserve, there
are a lot of ethnic citizens who should be baffled too.
The biggest problem currently facing post-secondary education is
chronic underfunding. Even if foreign students, or short students or
myopic students, were forced to pay $5;000 annually, it would not appreciably change the system which has to cut back admissions, library acquisitions and quality in order to survive.
Instead of picking on a scapegoat, Davis — if he is truly concerned about
the quality of education in B.C. as he claims — should be setting his sights
on his own front bench instead. Until then, people can only draw the worst
conclusions about his motivation. And the most frightening thing is they
may be right.
Might not always right
Brad Watson's and Bernard
Hoeter's letters printed in your Feb.
23 edition demand response. It is
difficult to say which conjures up a
more frightening vision of the
Waton's claim that moral right to
the land arises from recency of occupation without regard to accompanying genocidal means leads to
the inescapable conclusion that
might makes right, and leads him to
his necessary defence of police and
armed forces. In this case, criticism
of police practices runs counter to
his need to have his "right" to occupy the North American continent
defended. His claim that the European presence is as justified as that
of the Indian is based upon his unsubstantiated assertion that
American Indians ' 'migrated to this
continent from Asia."
He goes further, and raises the
spectre of "savagery" by suggesting
that Indians "examine the reality of
their past as a warring people," a
suggestion that is both insulting and
devoid of historical merit. Mr. Watson thereby attempts to take the
North American Indian to the level
of the European white, and then
demolishes this straw dog by attacking the features attributable only to
that white "civilization," all in
defence of his right to be here. It is
indeed unfortunate that he has failed to understand that no-one is really asking him to leave, only that he
try to understand and respect the
position of others.
Hoeter, on the other hand, simply suggests that the human rights of
those with which he disagrees simply be removed. Those who stand in
defence of such rights are
"psychopaths," and "incoherent."
It is interesting to note that no-one
ever suggested that the sacred pipe
would be smoked in Court, yet that
is where Hoeter's attack is directed,
with total blindness to the religious
issue raised. Woe betide those who
seek to smoke in court or who attack Hoeter's "public safety

Athletics honors women
With the women's athletic banquet and awards ceremony taking
place tonight The Ubyssey looks at
Patti Sakaki, last year's woman
athlete of the year. Hopefully it will
not take another year before those
honored at this year's ceremony
receive public recognition.
Despite winning her third straight
national gymnastic title March 7,
Patti Sakaki was not pleased with
her effort in the championships.
"My performance was bad" she
said in an interview Wednesday.
Sakaki won the overall title but
did not qualify for the individual
championships in the floor exercises.

wanted to do the most. I have a lot

UBC kicked its way to a win in
the final match of the University of

tournament last Saturday. Peter
Maclean kicked four penalties to
give UBC a 16-11 win over UVic.
Steve Ridenour rounded out UBC's
scoring with a try. UVic got tries
from Steve Wallace and Angus Izard and a penalty from Jamie Hawthorne.
Track and Field
UBC men's team placed third out
of 28 schools at the Canadian Interuniversity Athletic Union national
championships in Quebec City on
the weekend.
UBC was led by first year player
Simon Hoogwerf who set a record
in winning the 1000m race with a
time of 2:26.33. Hoogewerf was
also a member of the winning 4x800
relay team which set a new CIAU
record with a time of 7:40. Other
members of the winning team were
Jason Gray, Ian Gillespie and Ward
The only other winner for UBC
was Dave Parker, who repeated as
national pole vault champion.
Francis, Gillespie, Hoogewerf and
Gavin Smart placed third in the
4x400m relay.
The University of Toronto finished first with 56 points ahead of the
University of Alberta (38) and UBC
Only two UBC women qualified
for the nationals but they managed
to pick up 11 points which was good
for seventh place. Western Ontario
placed first with 57 points.
Tinker Allester finished second in
the 300m and fourth in the 60m
while teammate Maria Nibbelink
placed fourth in the 600m.
A total of 13 teams competed in
UBC's International Regatta on
Burnaby Lake on the weekend.
UBC came away with wins in the
women's novice four (1000m) and
the men's lightweight coxed four
In the men's varsity 2000m race
UBC was edged out of first place by
the Vancouver Rowing Club. The
rowing club's winning time was
6:06.5 and UBC's was 6:06.7. UVic
was just 0.6 seconds behind UBC.

weeks ago UVic beat UBC by 12
Klavora said his team's progress
is being held back by poor equipment. "We spend half of our time
repairing our equipment and because of this things are moving
slower than I hoped."
UBC will be having a row off
against UVic on April 30 to see
which rowing teams will represent
the west at the Canadian Amateur
Rowing Association championships
in Montreal in mid-May.
Guess what? UBC has a new varsity men's coach. Bob Molinski,
who has been the basketball coach
at Argyle high school for the last 10
years, will be taking over the coaching duties of Peter Mullins who is
taking a sabbatical.
The men's team hosted the
Whitecap reserves on Friday night
and were downed by the future pros
The score does not accural ely
reflect the play of UBC. In the first
half UBC had the majority of the
play but could not convert any of its
chances and trailed the Caps 1-0 at
half time.
In the second half the 'Caps slowly started taking it to UBC ;ind
scored two more goals before Bruce
Biles scored for UBC. The gEme
was Biles' last as a Thunderbird.
The Whitecaps lineup was made
up of players from the Whiteccips'

women's teams have started tieir
Vancouver league playoffs. Eoth

It is a double knockout playoff and
the teams play two games next
weekend. The first team plays in the
first division and the second tuam
plays in, surprise, the second division. But it expects to be in the first

of fun with it and was disappointed
that I did not qualify," she said.
At 20, Sakaki has now been competing in gymnastics for nine years.
She started off in ballet at four
but her parents switched her into
gymnastics at 11. Sakaki progressed
Sakaki . . . top gymnast
through the provincial ranks and
was selected to the national team in
A year later she decided to move
to Eugene, Oregon so she could
train with the National Academy of
Artistic Gymnastics.
"It was the top club in the states
and has produced more American
champions than any other club. We
went to school for four hours in the
morning and then trained for the
rest of the day." The training lasted
for seven hours a day with only one
day off a week.
After a year and a half in Oregon
Sakaki decided to drop out of the
program and return to Vancouver
to finish high school.
"I do not regret either going
down or coming back. I learned so
much while I was there yet I was
slightly homesick and did not know
what I was missing," she said.
At UBC the pace is a little less
hectic. The gymnastic's team trains
eight hours a day. Sakaki said she
likes the environment at UBC.
She added that the facilities at
UBC are good but not on the same
level with those at Oregon, which
makes it difficult to practise the
more difficult maneuvers.
After leaving Oregon Sakaki's
personal goals changed from attempting to reach the (boycotted)
j 1980 Moscow Olympics.
"My goal now is to have fun and
to have a perfect competition by doing the best I can without making
any dumb mistakes."
Sakaki's one disappointment
about college gymnastics is that the
Canadian Interuniversity Athletic
Union and the Canadian Gymnastics Federation decided not to
send a team to the world student
games in Romania last summer.
The next student games are to be
held in Edmonton next summe .
There will be a women's gymnastics
team representing Canada, but
Sakaki does not know how its
members will be decided.

Storm the Wall they cried. You
know the gears, the frats and
everybody else will compete in this

of The Ubyssey. Nestor could not
believe it. "You were great in the
Art's 20 race." That's right, The
Ubyssey was great in the Art's 20
race and that is why we are not
competing in the Storm the Wall.
When we accepted our trophies for
winning the extremely difficult independant section of the fall classic,
people booed us and said that we
only won because it is rumored that
some members of the staff do a lot
of drugs.
Well that is wrong. There are no
hippies on the paper. Only upper

to offend all of the jocks out there
by beating them. And besides it's

Oregon on the weekend competing

eventually won the tournament.

Canadian national volleyball championships, the University of Calgary
won the national title with relative
ease proving the Canada West

Changes Proposed by GSA
The Graduate Student Association has put forward
the above proposals to put the Graduate Student Centre under the direct control of graduate students.
• Students run S.U.B., faculty run the Faculty Club,
grad students should run the G.S.C.
• Grad student control means control of the $25 Grad
Student Centre fee.
• Grad student control is necessary to develop the
G.S.C. as a true centre for grad student activity.
The debt on the 1969 G.S.C. building expansion has
now reached manageable proportions.
• The $11 operating portion of the $25 G.S.C. fee need
no longer be allocated to the debt; the $14 expansion fee is quite sufficient for this purpose.
• The G.S.C. need no longer be run primarily as a
catering centre to pay off its debt.
• The $11 operating fee should now be used for and by
graduate students to promote' graduate student activities.
The proposals will also allow the purposes of the
G.S.A. to be carried out more effectively.
• A strong Graduate .Student Society will be able to
represent the interests of giraduate students directly.
• A strong Graduate Student Society will also see
greater graduate student influence In the A.M.S.
• A.M.S. clubs with graduate students can be supported by the granting of G.S.C. booking privileges.
