Students to walk mile to scab
By BRIAN JONES
Students who want to cross the
Teaching Assistant Union's picket
line Jan. 22 will have to walk farther than usual.
During the midnight-to-midnight
strike buses will not enter the immediate campus and will be
rerouted by the Metro transit
operating company, Amalgamated
Transit Union office manager Wes
Hutton said Monday.
"The ATU does not cross picket
lines, as a matter of policy. There
will be no way our drivers will cross
the picket lines," he said.
But how close the buses will come
is uncertain. "It depends on where
the buses can be turned around,"
he said.
The TAU's one day strike slated
for Jan. 22 is also gaining support
from other unions and groups,
TAU organizer Keith Baldrey said
Monday.
"We've received support from
TA unions at York, Toronto,
Carleton, and SFU," he said.
"We've also received support from
the UBC grad student association,
the B.C. Students Federation, the
Okanagan College student union,
the   Cariboo   College   student
association, and The Ubyssey."
Some of the groups have sent letters in support of the TAU to board
of governors chair Leslie Peterson,
said Baldrey. The TAU has also
received support from two campus
unions, and has been given verbal
indications of support from two
others, he added.
"We're also going to be talking
to the letter carriers and postal
workers. We haven't contacted
them yet, but we expect their support," said Baldrey.
But the faculty association has
not yet taken a stand on the TAU
strike, association press officer Andrew Brockett said.
When a TAU strike was called
before Christmas, the faculty
association called a meeting to
discuss it but no formal decisions
were taken then because of a lack of
quorum, he said.
But the TAU strike is not escaping the association's notice.
"It's likely to come up at the next
executive meeting. It's not on the
agenda because the strike notice
came out after the agenda was set,"
said Brockett.
The faculty association is holding
a general meeting on Thursday, but
Brockett did not know whether the
TAU strike issue would be raised.
The TAU picket lines will also be
honored by The Ubyssey, which
will not publish on Friday, Jan. 22.
At a staff meeting Saturday, the
paper's staff voted to support the
TAU, and will not publish on the
strike day because couriers would
have to cross the picket lines to
drop the papers on campus.
Gov't urges
bank loans
UBC may soon resort to
panhandling to financial institutions to pay for a provincial government plan that would see the
university buying out tenured professors' contracts.
Bill Gibson, Universities Council
of B.C. chair said Monday UBC
would have to find the money on
the open market rather than borrow
the $7.5 million shortfall from the
provincial government.
Gibson added there was no
money available to meet UBC's
shortfall and as a result, the university must turn to private institutions
for loans. Simon Fraser University
and the University of Victoria have
the option to follow the same
money saving plan.
Gibson denied the concern of
some faculty members that retirement would be mandatory rather
than voluntary.
"It would definately be voluntary, I couldn't imagine it being
mandatory. I would think people
would be happy to get their pensions early and have the opportunity to go into private consulting," he
said.
Gibson said each university
would control possible settlement
terms and who the individual faculty members to be approached with
an offer would be.
When asked if the provincial
government had known specifically
how much money the plan might
save Gibson said the government
isn't interested in a fixed amount of
savings.
Gibson said the plan gives universities an opportunity to utilize their
staff more effectively.
Some UBC faculty members were
angry lhat the money necessary to
implement the plan must be raised
on the open market. "If the government were going to pay the interest
charges, fine. This way it maikes no
sense," charged forestry dean
Joseph Gardner.
Charles   Culling,   UBC   faculty
association president said, the interest charges would greatly
diminish any savings. "Borrowing
on the open market is not a very
wise thing to do these days," said
Culling.
But Culling also added: "Providing it is true that retirement
would be voluntary, there could be
quite a saving."
He said it would be helpful if professors accepting the early retirement offer were in fields where they
would not need replacing. Culling
did not cite any examples of such a
faculty.
Education dean Daniel Birch
charged the entire plan was financially unreasonable. "To establish a
plan that is sufficiently attractive to
induce people into early retirement
in a time of high inflation is financially unreasonable," he said.
Birch added that the provincial
government and UCBC are attempting to shunt the blame of financial
problems onto individual universities without providing them with
leadership or solutions.
The recent federal budget will
also have an adverse effect on any
incentives which might be used to
encourage faculty members to consider early retirement, he said.
Gardner said many factors must
be examined before measures to
make up the shortfall are implemented. "A number of factors
will have to be flushed out and explored before anything happens.
No one really knows any of the
details. It's a red herring."
The provincial government announced in December it would
allow B.C. universities to go into
debt to bluy out the contracts of
tenured faculty members. The
universities act prohibits universities from going into debt under
normal circumstances.
The government also announced
its decision to turn down UBC's request for a $7.2 million grant.
Arsonist alert
on at Totem res.
Two suspicious fires in Totem
Park residence have students on the
alert for an arsonist.
The most dangerous fire was in
an elevator in Salish House Nov.
28. But residence student affairs coordinator Dima Utgoff said Monday it burned itself out, and the only cost involved was $12 for
cleanup. An earlier fire Nov. 23 was
set in a garbage can on the third
floor of Haida house, and was put
out by students. Replacement and
cleanup costs totalled $20.
"We were very lucky," said
Utgoff.

A bum steer
It seems the Holstein-Friesan Association of Canada has fowled
up on the registration of Ubyssey Lucky Hesper, the cow that went
to campus.
The cow, named after the paper that milks the campus for moos
stories, was registered a few years ago by the Agricultural
Undergraduate Society, or so it's been herd.
It came as an udder surprise to The Ubyssey to learn the UBC
administration is not the only organization to use barnyard techniques for registration. They were thoroughly cowed to learn that
Lucky Hesper's academic record was not up to scratch, and the administration members who allowed Lucky to register walked away
with their tails between their legs.
And now that this story has been milked for all it's worth it's important for you to know there is a cow registered at UBC and his
grades are probably better than yours. And that's no bull. Have a
dairy nice day.
Actually, this is a joke, sorry to steer you in the wrong direction.
ding to university fire department
captain Wilf Ferguson. "But we're
maintaining an open file on the two
suspicious fires, watching the
residences and hoping there's no
further incidents," he added.
Utgoff said the most recent arson
attempt occurred three years ago
when curtains in the Nootka lounge
at Totem were set alight. "It's a
rare occurrence, with no pattern,"
he said. "Thank goodness it doesn't
happen very often."
The RCMP and the Totem
residents association were not informed about the two suspicious
fires until told by The Ubyssey. "I
had seen notices alerting people
about a firebug but I hadn't realized there had been two fires," said
Totem president David Tripp.
Utgoff said there were no clues to
the arsonist's identity. "It would be
nice to find out, but I'm more concerned that it doesn't happen
again," he said.
Ferguson said all three fires occurred during the night. "Judging
by the time of year it could have
been something to do with exam
pressure," he said.
The housing department has
distributed notices to all residences
advising students to report any
suspicious activity and to challenge
strangers to ensure they are
legitimate visitors. The move was
urged by the fire department.
There have been no fires since
Christmas, Ferguson said. Page 2

Council and paper bypassed
Former Alma Mater Society
president Bruce Armstrong came
under attack Monday when it was
learned he secretly reserved possible
names for an autonomous Ubyssey
publications society.
Student councillors and Ubyssey
staff members criticized Armstrong
for failing to inform either council
or The Ubyssey about his actions.
The names Ubyssey Publications
Society and the Student Newspaper
Society of UBC were reserved in
December.
Armstrong added: "The Ubyssey
essentially is an AMS publication.
The lawyer suggested the AMS
reserve the names to eliminate any
possibility of having another society
going out and reserving that
name."
Armstrong said he thought he
was acting under the authority of
AMS general manager Charles Redden. But Redden said Monday he
was unaware the names had been
reserved and was alarmed The
Ubyssey had not been informed.
Redden admitted he gave Armstrong permission to reserve "some
names" at the registrar of companies but said he did not realize the
names were associated with The
Ubyssey. Redden said he did not
ask Armstrong to work on The
Ubyssey autonomy project, and added he has now directed Armstrong
to stop working on the project with
the lawyer.
But Armstrong claims Redden
asked for his advice on autonomy.
Armstrong said he had forgotten
the names were reserved two weeks
after he had given AMS lawyer Eva-
Lisa Helin authority to do so.
"If I had really known I would
have contacted The Ubyssey. But at
the time the conversation didn't
seem important and I think I've
forgotten. At the time I was very,
very busy," said Armstrong. "It
was such a small deal that at that
time I didn't feel any hesitation
about reserving the name."
But Ubyssey staffer Eric Eggertson said Monday, "It seems
suspicious that he's gone around
behind everyone's back and done
this. We can't help but feel outraged at his sneaky tactics."
The provincial government is to
blame for the current shortfalls in
post-secondary education, a federal
cabinet minister charged Monday.
John Roberts, federal environment, science and technology
minister, told about 35 people in
SUB 212 the Liberal government
did not cut back on established programs funding to post-secondary
education in its November budget.
"The federal government is not
cutting back," he said. "The present arrangement is that we transfer
the money to the provinces untied,
with no strings attached. They (the
provincial governments) can use the
money any way they want."
Roberts added the federal
government is not turning the problem over to the provinces, but feels
a need for a national perspective on
the issue.
And in reply to prime minister
Trudeau's statement that British
Columbians are out of touch with
the country, Roberts said the country is out of touch with the province.
Roberts added many Canadians
do not know their own country.
"There is not enough human contact.    Often   enough,   Canadians
don't experience or see their country," he said.
Our province is no different ;"rom
any other region in Canada, he
said. "We are still building our
country. Many opportunities, and
adventures exist right here," said
Roberts, adding that Canadians do
not need to look elsewhere for
challenges such as research and
development.
The federal government is currently trying to assess the impact of
its new tax advantages given to
private companies to encourage
research and development, he said.
"It is obvious the provisions are
being taken care of."
His ministry is also undertaking
ways to help the private sector in
funding research projects, said
Roberts. "There was a 50 per cent
increase in funding for national
research and the present tax assessment allows companies to write off
profits."
Established companies easily
make use of the current tax arrangements, He added. "New companies which need money to build
factories and employ workers find
the tax advantage useless," he said.
Exec elections an
annual non-event
This year, the Alma Mater Society executive elections have received
an underwhelming response from
thousands of candidates.
In fact, thousands neglected to
apply for the positions and when
nominations for the five positions
closed Friday, only 12 students had
submitted nominations. Last year
19 were nominated.

president Dave Frank is talking on
perennial candidate Chris Fulker,

Fulker previously ran unsuccessfully for several AMS executive

president last year and previously
chaired the AMS programs committee. This is Gate's first try at
public office.

Scale down, construction costs up
Despite increased construction costs, and scaled
down plans, clubs will still benefit from $345,000 of
proposed SUB renovations according to vice president
Pat Chow.
Students vote Jan. 25 to 29 to spend $10 for two
consecutive years to increase and reallocate space for
club offices and meeting rooms within SUB.
Under the proposal the listening lounge and the
south west corner of the conversation pit on SUB's
main floor will be converted into three adjoining
meeting rooms seperated by retractable walls with
2910 sq. ft. of floor space.
Seven club offices and a new Photosoc dark room
will also be constructed in the SUB basement if the
referendum passes.
Chow said every year more clubs are constituted and
entitled to SUB booking privilege. The result is a
severe space shortage.
"If it (the referendum) doesn't go this year we'll be
really crowded next year," Chow said.
In February 1981, students defeated a proposal to
develop the second floor outdoor courtyard and space
under the plaza between SUB and the aquatic center.
"When the estimates came in for last year's proposal the cost had doubled," said Chow.
The current proposal is a short term project she added. The project will be paid for in two years to
minimize interest payments and the construction will
be completed in three months during the summer.
Chow countered charges from grad student
representative Rob Cameron that the renovations
should be paid off over a longer term by reducing the
fee increase to $5 from $10.
"It was a choice of paying more interest over a
longer period or reducing the overall cost and paying
the principle back quickly," she said.

to Paty Chow, who will not be seeking re-election.
Voting will take place from Monday Jan. 25 to Friday Jan. 29. Last
year elections were held for only
two days, stimulating complaints
from students who said they did not
have enough time to vote.
Candidate interviews will appear
in The Ubyssey before elections are
held.
Referenda on funding renovations to the SUB lounge and
downstairs areas and a public interest research group at UBC will be
held concurrently.
Fair response
A drive to conscript UBC
students in the battle against apathy
met success Monday in SUB.
In fact, UBC's first volunteer fair
attracted so many students that
organizers plan another such fair in
September. Hundreds of students
drifted through the 26 volunteer
booths between 11:30 a.m. and 2:30
p.m.
"Our aim was to introduce
students to the opportunities
available," said Speakeasy coordinator Mary McCullum.
Dorothy Beheshti, a volunteer
from the G.F. Strong Rehabilitation Centre, said, "It was certainly
worth doing. It gave us a chance to
meet informally and casually with
students, who are a valuable
resource to us."
Students who are anxious to
work hard for no pay but missed
the fair should phone the Vancouver volunteer centre at

oft Die
Socred solutions silly
The fiscal ambiguity of the Socred's plan to have
UBC buy out tenured faculty can only lead one to
question the motives behind this band aid solution.
The university will certinly not save an appreciable
amount of money during the first years of "buy out"
because an acceptable price to the faculty involved will
not be a $1.49 bargain. The savings, if any, and the
provincial government has not deigned to put a figure
on them, would only be realized in the long term, after
the initial buy out costs.
But what kind of savings will occur if the long term
costs of buying out faculty are subject to interest rates
of 20 per cent, or more? By refusing to allow the
universities an interest free or low cost loan, the
government is forcing the big three out onto the open
market and into the land of crippling interest rates.
No, the only "saving" the government might make
is saving face. It will be interesting to see if a high
percentage of bought out faculty come from those
areas which the Socreds consider unnecessary — arts,
languages, and education. A loss of faculty in those
areas could well encourage the professionally oriented
Socreds to drastically cut or cancel programs which
have a high loss of tenured faculty, claiming that
dwindling faculty numbers indicate a lack of demand,
and the savings, however small, will be channelled into the professional schools at the expense of the remaining non-professional students.
For a government that worships a balanced budget,
the financial answers to their "savings" scheme are
pitifully few and far between. The only saving will accrue to the Socreds, who are unwilling to assume their
financial responsibility for education. Until better
answers are produced, faculty are well advised to hold
back any commitment to the scheme, which in its current state could plunge the universities into irretrievable debt.

Stopping the masquerade
By way of setting matters straight,
I would like to comment on the article by Muriel Draaisma in The
Ubyssey of Nov. 27, 1981 which
masquerades as objective journalism.
1. SAC did not constitute CPC
(M-L) but the Committee Against
Racist and Fascist Violence — a
group of people on campus who
want to escalate the struggle against
racism and fascism and the war
preparations of the two superpowers. This group includes democratic students, members of the
People's Front Against Racist and
Fascist Violence and Marxist-Leninists. There was never any secret
about the affiliations aof the leading
members. At the same time, political affiliation was never a condition
of membership in the club.
2. To say that the committee is a
group of people who have a history
of violence is totally untrue. As for
its "reputation," you have chosen
to try to give it that reputation. The
organizations with which the committee associates itself have a history of putting into practice the
principle that racists and fascists
have no right to speak or organize
in our country and that is its reputation.
3. The Ubyssey has now chosen
to print two articles attacking the
People's Front for incidents on Oct.
4 and 17 where attempts were made
to prevent us from expressing our
views in a public rally in a public
park on issues of concern to all
Vancouverites. One of those articles
contained barefaced lies and the
other was satisfied with innuendoes. It is time you printed the letter
from Al Soroka which deals with
.hese incidents — what actually
happened and the analysis of the
People's   Front   which   yourselves
and others seem only too anxious to
suppress.
It's interesting that on the same
page as an article which attempts to
discredit those who have long been
fighting racism and fascism you
chose to give the KKK and its criminal leader more than half a page of
free publicity. It is outrageous that
The Ubyssey spends student money
to emulate the mass media in their
sensational promotion of these dangerous groups and individuals.
It is racist and fascist groups like
the KKK and their backers which
are working against the interests of
the Canadian and world's people
and we must unite in action to eliminate them and their source.

Fight the anti-lifers
In a very uncanny way the human
psyche has the power to sift, distort
or even totally ignore evidence that
may lead to an uncomfortable conclusion. Nowhere has this trait been
more deadly than where a group rationalizes that unwanted individuals
may be exterminated because they
are not human. Thus the higher
castes, the slave owners and the
Nazis rationalized that untouchables, slaves and Jews respectively were subhuman and hence did
not possess even that right which is
the foundation of all rights — the
right to life.
In our own day the victims of this
kind of rationalizing have been the
preborn. In spite of all the evidence
from genetics and embryology, pro-
choicers continue to repeat that the
"contents" of the uterus are a part
of the woman's body, an appendage, protoplasm, a bit of tissue,
too small to be human, merely a
"fetus", only potentially human,
only an "it", etc. The title above is
perhaps the nadir of this kind of
pro-choice sophistry which, in this
case, compares the preborn individual to an acorn and the
postborn one to an oak. Now what
unbiased person would ever think
of comparing the preborn-postborn
relationship to a relationship existing in the plant kingdom? Surely
a more unbiased comparison would
be between the progeny of human
beings and those of other mammals
— just as rats beget rats and
monkeys beget monkeys, so too,
human beings beget human beings.
In the final analysis the pro-
choice (on abortion and
euthanasia), pro-life struggle is only
a symptom of a much deeper conflict. Although some people may be
in one camp or the other for the
wrong reasons because they have
not pursued their basic convictions
to their logical conclusions, on the
whole the conflict is between those
who view human beings merely
materialistically as brute animals,
which become only dust after
death, and those who accept that
each human being has an ultimate
value. The former view leads to the
conclusion that human life is expendable, ultimately without value
and, as Sartre concluded, absurd
whereas the latter leads to an overriding respect for that foundational
right which transcends even the
right to choose, that is, the right to
life.

Get intramuralled
The intramural program is preparing for one of the most exciting
terms ever. Besides league sports
such as volleyball, basketball and
hockey for men and women, a number of special events are also scheduled.
The first special event is the 1st
annual Grouse Mountain slalom ski
challenge. (It won't be cancelled
this year due to lack of snow!) Labatt's will cosponsor this event
which will be held Thursday, Jan.
28. Regardless of your skiing ability, this event will accommodate
your level.
The race will be conducted as a
triple slalom and there will be three
levels of competition — novice, intermediate and advanced. The UBC
ski team will be on the hill to conduct the race and to instruct new
skiers.
Next on the intramural calendar
is the Valentine's dance on Saturday, Feb. 14. (More information
will be available soon. )
Storm the wall heats begin Tuesday, March 16 and finals end on
Friday, March 19. Participate in
this gruelling five person race. Each
team must have one sprinter, swimmer, jogger, cyclist and captain. To

Pill not healthy
We were distressed to learn that,
once again this year, Dr. Robin Percival-Smith of UBC student health
services, is recruiting young
women. Volunteers are being requested to participate in a study of
the side effects of oral contraceptives. The fact that the pill he is testing contains less of the female hormone estrogen than some current
low-dose contraceptive pills does
not reassure us.
For years, researchers have
known about the dangers associated
with estrogen use. By the year 1940,
hundreds of studies had been published discussing the connection between estrogen and cancer. Despite
this fact, oral contraceptives that
were marketed in 1960 contained
massive amounts of this hormone.
As women used the Pill, even
though products were "improved"
over the years, other dangerous effects of taking estrogen became evident: blood clotting, migraine headaches, strokes, liver disease, fetal
abnormalities and depression are
only a few. The Pill was becoming
widely known as a dangerous drug
and the pharmaceutical companies
that made huge profits from its sale
could reasonably be expected to
panic.
Since 1960, millions cf dollars
have gone into oral contraceptive
research. In an endless scheme of
trial and error, hundreds of new
products have been developed, each
claiming to be safer and more effective than the last. Many studies
(some of them, at least in part, financed by drug companies) have attempted to convince us that not only is the Pill safe, but that (as Dr.
Percival-Smith  has  stated)  it  has
benefits to our health!
Clearly, it is drug companies who
profit from such "scientific" selling
of the Pill. Women do not benefit
from taking drugs that are known
to be dangerous; nor do we benefit
by donating our bodies to research.
We do need more money being
put into studying and developing
safer methods of contraception. We
need men to take more responsibility for birth control. And we need
more open and educated discussion
about using birth control with intercourse so that we can more comfortably and effectively use less
dangerous methods.

Stop 'jokesters'
The Ombudsoffice has had complaints from students about the enforcement of the Pit policy to lay
criminal charges against anyone
caught inadvertently "removing"
Pit property, especially jugs, from
the premises.
Unfortunately, there is little we
can do for such people because
there is a good reason for the enforcement policy — to stop the replacement cost of missing items so
that beer prices can be lower.
This, then, is a warning to all you
jokesters that the Pit is enforcing its
policy of laying criminal charges
against people absconding with Pit
property.

THE UBYSSEY
January 12, 1982
Published Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays throughout
the university year by the Alma Mater Society of the
University of B.C. Editorial opinions are those of the
staff and not of the AMS or the university administration. Member, Canadian University Press. The
Ubyssey's editorial office is in room 241k of the Student
Union Building. Editorial departments, 228-2301; Advertising, 228-3977.
I entered The Office and was delighted to see the waits covered in pix of Luce Dingdong with
concentric circles on them. Kevin McGee, Julie Wheelwright and Arnold Headstrom were
throwing poison darts at some, while Brian Jones and Muriel Draaisma threw Ubyssey logos.
Arne Hermann and Eric Eggertson were gleefully sticking pins into little B.A. rag dolls with
near-deaf Glen Sanford looking on with red eyes and giggling. Sean La Fleur and Craig Yuill
were smearing chicken's blood on some of the pix, and Tom Hawthorn and Scott McDonald
simultaneously muttered hideous spells. Pat McLeod kicked more B.A. dolls (with pins in
them) around The Office and Nancy Campbell crushed all those she could find beneath her
merciless heels. Craig Rice-Brooks just threw sharpened crosses at more pix. Then Verne
McDonald and Chris Wong ripped down all the pix and burned the bull. Tuesday, January 12, 1982

UIC and Dieppe
By KEVIN ANNETT
I had been out of work for a year,
and oblivion stared at me as clearly
as the Unemployment Insurance
building that had become a second
home. Christmas had come and
gone unnoticed, and the dirty snow
was still everywhere in that new year
of 1978 in Hamilton, Ontario. But I
didn't care much about the scenery
I had befriended an old fellow
named Don, 78 years old, out of
work and as fiesty as a boxer. He
was the only person I ever saw who
stood up to the bullies and won. He
dripped outrage from every pore of
his being whenever he met a new injustice. He loved to speak up loudly
in the crowded UIC office so
everyone could hear him: "Just like
or Christmas then, just about stay-    the '30s. It's time for a goddamned
perspectives
ing alive. So, like an addict, I found
myself again and again in a place I
didn't want to be: in the crowded
lobby of a government office,
waiting for my cheque.
I was used to the faces: most of
them young, many old, all of them
sober. Few of them ever spoke,
even when the latest UIC hatchet-
man worked them over: "Well,
where is your husband?"; "What
about your job search form?" They
always mumbled something or
shook their heads awkwardly,
sometimes with tears in their eyes,
but they never spoke back to the
bureaucratic bully or told him
where to put his job search forms.
And it went on like that, rain or
shine, the anger and humiliation
and terrible need never ceasing.
revolution." It never surprised me
when people smiled or nodded their
agreement; nor did it Don, for he
had been fighting the hopeless battles for 50 years.
He had marched with the hunger
marchers in Canada and England in
the worst of the Dirty years, and he
had lost not an ounce of his resolve
since 1935. He once told me about
the time when Hamilton's finest
turned firehoses on hungry men for
the crime of demanding work, and
about his friend who was shot dead
by a cop in Montreal during a food
riot.
"Straight through the heart.
Never knew what hit him." Don
paused then, his rheumy eyes taking
in the crammed office, and he
showed a rare sadness. "Everybody

hell, they needed a job. An' I never
saw one of them again." I followed
his gaze to all the younj; faces and
imagined them lying forever on the
cold sands of Dieppe or Normandy.
I knew what he was thinking, and
why he kept fighting on against
bureaucracy and joblessness in his
eighth decade, even when he was
totally alone. He explained it briefly
one day in a coffee shop.
"We got sacrificed lstst time to
pull the system outa Depression,
son, and you know they'll do it
again. It's the only way out for the
rich — have a war and knock off all
the hungry mouths." He slurped his
coffee, then stared at me intently.
"That's why I'm still oul there pro-
testin'. It's for them — all them

I never forgot what he said,
especially on cold mornings leaflet-
ting or picketing outside UIC offices. I didn't hear the abusive
voices or the lonely, hov/ling wind.
All I could see was an old, white-
haired man fighting for life itself —

UBC skiers go to the t
in
By PAT MacLEOD
UBC's men and women skiers
swept away the opposition last
weekend at Crystal, Mt.
Washington to win the season's
first Northwest Collegiate Ski Conference.
The meet's highlights included,
UBC's John Hilland's individual
performance and the men's team
taking the top five spots in the individual standings. UBC coach
Rick Crowsen, pleased at the
results, said Monday the team "expects to win the Northwest Conference title February 20, 21 and 22,
and has a strong chance of going to
the National Championships in
Idaho in March."
The only Canadian ski team west
of Toronto, UBC competes with
teams from Washington, Oregon,
Idaho and Montana in the Northwest Conference is northern division because it is too expensive to
fly east.
UBC's 13 team members, squeezed into one van because of budget
restrictions, include only three
cross-country specialists and concentrate their talent on alpine
events. Despite their size, UBC has
no difficulty in outskiing the opposition.
The men's team scored 40
points, 31 ahead of second place
finisher University of Washington.

'Birds alive
By SCOTT McDONALD
The forward line shoots a heart-
stopping four for 26. The leading
scorer is a first year guard with 12
points.
Ugly — that is what UBC basketball is.
The University of Saskatchewan
Huskies visited War Memorial gym
Friday, and put on an incredibly
poor display of basketball. But the
Huskies still managed to win 55-45
because, as UBC coach Peter
Mullins said, "we were a little
worse."
A "little" is an understatement.
The 'Birds shot 28 per cent from the
floor for their worst performance
of the season. The Huskies hit 41
per cent of their shots and were led
by Murray and Mark Redekop with
16 and 15 points respectively. Lloyd
Scrubb scored 12 for UBC.
On Saturday UBC performed up
to par, but Saskatchewan also improved and downed the 'Birds
77-62. The Redekop brothers again
did most of the damage. Mark hit
for 27 points and Murray 25. The
top scorer for UBC was Pat West
with 23. Scrubb added 13.
UBC shot 42 per cent from the
floor while Saskatchewan was good
for 55 per cent. The Huskies pulled
down 35 rebounds to UBC's 25.
Mullins said West and Scrubb
played well Saturday. He added
that no one stood out Friday.
UBC now has a 1-5 record in the
Canada West collegiate league, 10
points behind the University of Victoria. Saskatchewan is now 3-3.
When asked about playoffs,
Mullins said UBC will not go
anywhere until it starts putting the
ball in the basket. He said the in-
consistancy of the team was unex-
plainable. A good game one day, a
terrible one the next.
In a tournament over the holiday
in Calgary, UBC shot 30 per cent
and lost to Brandon and then turned around and played very strongly
and defeated Carlton and the
University of Alberta. UBC's next
games are Friday and Saturday Jan.
15 and 16 at the University of
Lethbridge.
If you think the men's team is
having trouble, say hello to Jack
Promfret and the UBC women's
team. UBC women also played the
University of Saskatchewan Friday
and Saturday. The results were not
inspiring with scores of 71-32 and
73-51 respectively.
UBC's record is now 0-8 which
leaves it 16 points behind UVic. The
playoffs are not something UBC is
aiming for. A win is. Last year the
team record was 0-20, on the
season, and the year before that it
was 1-19.
Kathy Bultitude and Linda King
had 8 points each for UBC on Friday and on Saturday Bultitude had
13 and Peggy Donaldson added 10.
The women are also travelling to
Lethbridge this weekend.

GYMNASTICS
Supported by Patti Sakaki's solia
performance, the UBC women's
gymnastics team narrowly edged
Western Oregon College 127.70 to
127.10 at Monmouth, Oregon on
the weekend.
Sakaki won the individual competition with 33.95 points and she
now qualifies for the Canadian In-
teruniversity Athletic Union championships to be held in Winnipeg in
early March.
There were five other UBC gymnasts who qualified for the CIAU
championships by scoring more
than 28 points. Michele Sirette, who
placed fourth in the meet, scored
31.30; Lani wong, 30.75; Alisa
Kage, 30.60; Janice Eng, 29.90; and
Aleson MacCulloch, 28.20.
The UBC Men's Gymnastics
team cartwheeled away with their
second victory at a duo meet against
the University of Calgary Saturday.
The final team scores saw UBC with

Dismal defence trips Thunderbirds
What does a hockey team without a defence do? It
loses.
Such was the case this weekend when the UBC
men's team dropped a pair of Canada West University
Athletic Association hockey games to the Calgary
Dinosaurs at Thunderbird arena.
On Saturday Calgary won 6-4 and Sunday the score
was 7-2. Calgary is now 7-3 on the season and UBC is
1-9. In those ten games UBC's defence has allowed 66
goals.
Saturday it was three goals by Calgary's Ron Gerlitz
which did UBC in. Ted Cotter, Dave Brownlie, Tom
Ochi and Bill Holowaty scored for UBC.
It was only in the first period that UBC's defence
was really bad as the 'Birds spotted Calgary the first
three goals of the game. Ron Paterson stopped 28
shots in the UBC goal and Jeff Lastiwka stopped 29
for Calgary. Both goalies had strong games.
In the Sunday game it was the third period in which
UBC's defence stopped defending as Calgary scored
five straight goals to turn a 2-2 game into a 7-2 win.
Darnian Steiert was the top scorer for Calgary with
two goals, while Drew Hunt and Jim Allison were the
sharp shooters for UBC. Paterson and Lastiwka were
the goalies again.
Paterson is in the unfortunate position of being a
good goalie on a team that does not play defence very
well.
UBC men's athletic director Rick Noonan said
Monday that a hockey rebuilding program would take
several years. Undoubtably one of the first areas that
Noonain and UBC coach Jack Moores will attempt to
strengthen is the defence as two periods of play is not
quite enough.
UBC plays Calgary again this weekend in Calgary. Page 8
