Why is Trident protest week needed ?
What is Trident? Why is UBC
holding Trident concern week from
Nov. 24 to 29?
Trident is a nuclear submarine
base currently being built in
Bangor, Washington, 100 miles
south of Vancouver. The U.S. navy
plans to have the base completed
by 1978.
Ten monster submarines — each
one four stories high and 550 feet
long — will operate from the base.
They will be equipped with the
most effective, and therefore
potentially the most deadly,
nuclear warheads yet devised.
Each submarine will carry two
nuclear reactors and 408 separate
nuclear warheads.
Some of these warheads, called
Manoeuverable Re-entry Vehicles
or MARVs, contain devices which
enable them to avoid defensive
anti-ballistic missiles and then
return to their original path.
Thus they can avoid any defence
system employed against nuclear
weapons and go straight to their
The MARVs will be used with
another type of missile, the
Multiple Independantly guided Reentry Vehicles (MIRVs).
Each sub will carry 24 of these
combined missiles. Each missile
will have multiple warheads, so
each sub will have the ability to
strike 408 different targets.
Without interception.
And they can reach their targets
from a distance of 6,000 miles,
which means they can hit targets
in the U.S.S.R. or mainland China
from their home base in Bangor —
as well as from any area in the
Pacific where a sub might be
Despite U.S. defense department
statements to the contrary, these
machines are not defensive
weapons. They are first-strike
offensive weapons.
The U.S. claims to need massive
stock-piles of nuclear weapons as a
"deterrent" to possible attack
from the U.S.S.R. or China.
So they have amassed enough
nuclear weapons to destroy the
U.S.S.R.'s urban and industrial
areas 34 times — the famous and
futile "over-kill" — while the
U.S.S.R. has the armaments to
destroy the U.S. 13 times.
But these new weapons cannot
only demolish the U.S.S.R., they
can avoid anti-ballistic missiles
and blow up underground missile
"silos", thus preventing any
retaliatory attack.
This is possible because the
missiles are more accurate than
their predecessors, which could
only strike within 50 miles of their
Surely the ability to completely
destroy the enemy cannot be
regarded as defensive, or as a
necessary part of any defense
Whether or not the Trident base
indicates a change in U.S. defense
department policy or not, it
represents a dramatic change in
the U.S.'s nuclear power.
The base changes the balance of
power between countries with
nuclear weapons and will almost
certainly lead to escalation of the
arms race despite the strategic
arms limitation talks.

Only 615 students cast ballots on
the first day of the week-long Alma

discouraged by the comparatively
low turnout.
"There were only two polls
today, and the vote will be a lot

he said Monday.
Only SUB and Sedgewick library
had polling places Monday.
"A lot of people seemed eager to
be informed," Tynan said. He said
he thought many people are taking
a few days to mull over their
decisions before casting ballots.
"It (the turnout) is pretty good

rate of more than 10 per cent a

SUB crafts people face boot
The SUB management committee wants to reverse its policy
of allowing local crafts people to
market their goods in SUB space.
The decision came at a committee policy meeting Monday,
and must be ratified by Alma
Mater Society council.
AMS co-ordinator Nadine McDonnell, a committee member,
said Monday vendors will have an
opportunity to present their views
before any final decision is made.
She said the committee decision
will be presented to AMS council
for discussion either Wednesday or
next week.
In a statement issued after the
meeting the committee said
"vendors should not be permitted
to operate in the main concourse of
SUB. Such vendors would be
welcome to sell their crafts
through the AMS co-operative
store in the SUB basement."
McDonnell said the considerations leading to the decision
• limited space, which requires
controls because of fire marshall
• the illegality of vending
operations because most vendors
haven't bothered to get the
required $10 licence;
• the AMS co-op bookstore is
running at a loss;
• dissatisfied customers direct
their hostility towards the AMS;
• that students subsidize the
vendors by supplying heat and
light and other overhead costs;
• and few of the craft vendors
are students.
McDonnell said the only positive
aspect of the vendors is that they
make individual students happy.
She added that the committee's
decision may create a student
She said an option to having the
craftspeople sell their wares in the
co-op bookstore might be to
provide them with a separate
room, as removed from the
mainstream of student traffic as is
the AMS basement store.
The committee wants to avoid a
system of rents and leases, McDonnell said, because such a
system would create legal hassles.
Earlier, co-op bookstore
manager Marian Foster said the
basement store is in danger of
closing because of financial difficulties.
Foster said in an interview
Thursday the shop is losing
business because of stiff competition from the craft vendors
She said the bookstore cannot
compete with the craft tables
because they enjoy a prime
location and have no overhead to
pay for.
"We have bookkeeping and staff
to pay for while the upstairs people
have neither. We just can't
compete," she said.
The AMS employs one full-time
person as manager and several
students on a part-time basis to run
the operation, Foster said.
"But, because of budgetary
problems, we've had to make
cutbacksJn our staffing," she said.
Half the students originally employed last fall to staff the co
operative effort have had to be laid
off, she added.
The bookstore and craft shop
opened in the SUB basement five
years ago in an effort to offer
students cheap second-hand textbooks and an opportunity to
sample the products of local and
student craftsmen.
Originally, bookstore operating
costs were offset by returns on
book sales, Foster said.
However, craft sales have
become the main means of
financial suppgrt for the operation,
Foster said.
"At certain times of the year,
like September and October, we
rely on book sales to keep us going.
"But for the other 10 months of
the year it's the sale of crafts
which keeps us afloat," Foster
However, the shop cannot
continue without the contribution
of both areas, she said.
An alternative to the present setup, Foster said would be to either
bring the table merchants
downstairs to the bookstore or
conversely to move the cooperative upstairs where it could
fairly compete with the tables for

The book sale currently underway in Brock Hall is meeting

Donovan said figures show the
event has had a smaller turnout
than last year and sales are down
as a result.
"The sale has been a little
disappointing this time and things
have not gone as well as expected," said Donovan.
He blamed the poor turnout on
the weather, saying rain has kept
away prospective buyers.
Donovan discounted suggestions
that the sale offers no real

to 80 or 90 per cent" depending on
the book and publisher.

is offering bargains at the sale.
One student said the sale has
good prices on art books. He said
he had spent $125 at the sale but
considered he had made a saving.
Two other customers said the
sale offered financial bargains on
art sketches and prints.
Both said it was an ideal place
for Christmas shopping.
Another shopper said the sale
offers a good opportunity to buy
"gag gifts."
Donovan said that as the sale
approaches its Nov. 29 conclusion,
remaining books will beoffered at

date will be "boxed up for next
year," Donovan said.

Sept. 30.
Nancy Wiggs, another union
spokeswoman, said Monday the
union will have a special membership meeting Thursday, but
would not disclose what will be
discussed at the meeting.
However, she said: "We haven't
even been able to settle non-money
things, and I think the members
are getting pretty tired of being
told that nothing is happening."
McAslan said AUCE does not
think it comes under the wage
controls imposed recently by the
federal government.
"Negotiations will proceed as if
we aren't covered," she said.
The union rejected an administration offer of a 19 per cent
wage increase shortly before the
federal government announced an
eight to 12 per cent wage hike

NDU crumbs
phoney baloney
That is the only way to describe education minister Eileen
Dailly's recent announcement of a new public university for
Despite all the fanfare and drama of the announcement,
there may never be a fourth university.
Dailly's cynicism is amazing.
On the eve of an election she announces a new university.
But in reality the decision has never been made.
A fourth university still remains just one of several ideas
being studied for post-secondary education in the interior.
Dailly reveals her love of power by this crass political
She also reveals her great desire to silence dissenters at
Notre Dame University in Nelson, angered by her
department's arbitrary approach to the future of the Nelson
The government does not like noisy criticism; especially
at election time.
So with a great flourish of her royal hand, Queen Eileen
tosses a crumb to the folks in Nelson. It turns out even the
crumb is fake.
Dailly's cynicism will make it hard for anyone to believe
her in the future. But it is doubtful whether Dailly cares
about her credibility in Nelson. She is obviously more
concerned with her image with the electorate.
People in'the interior have already waited too long for a
post-secondary education policy.
It's time for Dailly to make a real decision to create a new
university. These false, empty promises will satisfy no one.
The question of my attendance at
the fourth annual conference of
women in colleges and universities
appears to be exciting much
controversy after the fact. I am
rather surprised at this since then
acting external affairs officer
Janet Neilson reported I was going
to the conference several weeks
before hand.
In a written report to students'
council I too mentioned that I was
planning to attend the conference
and Arlene Francis specifically
asked me about it after council. At
that time I understood that council
had already ratified my going,
along with delegates for the NUS
conference which was discussed at
the same time. This later proved
Arlene had plenty of opportunity
to question my going before the
conference. I find it most peculiar
that she waited until after the
conference was over and I'd
returned to start asking questions.
After I lost the election I no
longer sat on council and therefore
stopped attending council
meetings. It seemed probable to
me that I would not be able to attend the conference as I no longer
reported to council. However, I
talked to Dave Theessen, former
AMS treasurer, and he said he
would bring the matter up (I
assumed he meant on council, but
this was incorrect).
The night it was to be discussed I
was in the building working on a
housing proposal. During that time
Stewart Savard stopped in at
council to check with Dave. He was
told that I had been passed by an
executive meeting and that this
was sufficient for me to go. So I
It should also be pointed out that
while I was in office I attempted to
find the funding for a second
woman who had been invited to
attend as a resource person. I also
contacted a representative from
the Women's Office (after a
discussion with Arlene) who said
they were trying to find money but
who did not approach the AMS for
.assistance, nor did she ask my
help. Due to the postal strike and
time constraints the second woman
was unable to attend. In spite of the
fact that at the last minute travel
grants were also made available it
seems the Women's Office couldn't
send a delegate.
I think this whole mess indicates
that there is-a great deal of confusion about the correct procedure
for choosing conference delegates.
I have heard two different stories
from council members like Arlene
and executive members like Dave.
It seems to me this is a result of
individual council members
becoming as concerned and informed about student problems as
executive members are supposed
to be.
In many cases, students from
organizations like the Women's
Office or the Part-Time Students'
Association can offer and benefit
as much from conferences as
council members. The changing
situation requires a more flexible
procedure for choosing delegates
which relies more on qualification
than strictly position and formal
I would not have attended the
conference had I not thought I had
a formal vote of confidence behind
me. However, the confusion
around the whole procedure indicates that something should be
done to clear it up. I'm surprised
that Arlene didn't take the opportunity when it offered itself.
Lake Sagaris
On Nov. 13, one of your reporters
telephoned me to ask my opinion of
Michael Shaw, UBC administration vice-president.
Presumably, since I had worked
for him while he was dean of the
faculty of agricultural sciences, I
would have formed some opinion of
him as a person, or an academic,
or an administrator, or as a
combination of all of these. Well, I
had, but my opinions were quite
unsatisfactory to your reporter
because they were not negative.
What is the matter with your
reporters that they must take such
a negative attitude to things?
Where genuine graft or corruption
exists in public institutions, certainly these should be exposed and
here reporters can offer a genuine
public service, if they do their job
right but why look for trouble
where none exists?
Why assume that because a man
has accepted an appointment he
has done so out of some nasty
ulterior motive? Why not take a
positive attitude and ask, what did
this man achieve in his previous
position? What qualities of mind
did he show? Will these qualities be
applicable to his present position
and work to the benefit of this

In The Ubyssey Nov. 17, there
was space allocated to an article
written by John Haggartt. (Is the

seems to me, demonstrates the
type of thinking that goes into pro

This fellow Haggartt makes a
great deal of the fact that he is
writing about the 'Red horde,'
'gigantic horde,' 'slimy reds,'
'rottenred,' 'red scare,' and so on.

calling  themselves  such   things?
Perhaps it is because their books
are so often in the 'red', honest
mistakes or not. "Remember
Norm Levi's '100 million bugger
up?" Can anybody forget? How
about ICBC? Is this an example of
Dave Barrett's 'by the people, for
the people' type corporation? Is
ICBC making a profit to re-invest
in the company in order to lower
insurance costs, or is the 18 per
cent increase in insurance
premiums an indication of
something otherwise?
About the 'NDP bungling' and
the Haggartts' statement that we
know that some accountants screw
up on cost estimates under the
NDP go to some truly worthwhile
social programs. Who knows? We
know they didn't know they were
$100 million over budget until it
was too late. And who were the
lucky sould who received these
"truly worthwhile" social
Haggartt asks: "What is going
on?" He's right to ask himself that.
It looks as though Mr. Haggartt
wanted to say something about
doomsdayers or oppressive state
socialism vs enlightened free
enterprise, but he got lost in his
attempt. At least he got it right in
saying that "it is incompetent big
government versus the individual."
"Bumbling bureaucrats" is not
only alliteration, but very
descriptive of the present government. Who else would send an
incompetent cabinet minister to
represent B.C. in one of the major
trade centers (London, England)
of the world.
Barrett, according to Haggartt,
made an honest, decisive decision,
"witness the back-to-work order."
Honest, shmonest! Who was it that
said no provincial election until at
least next year, definitely not
before Christmas, and then uses a
tactic such as this in the hope that
it will pull the wool over the eyes of
the electorate and show that he
really does have their interest at
heart. Good ol' fat little Dave.

be such a bad thing if they did go
bankrupt. They would have to stop

They wouldn't be able to spend
thousands of our dollars on "invitation only" special events with
free liquor for the guests. Clubs
would be able to operate outside

The AMS could no longer pour

Vote no
UBC students should vote no in
this week's referendum on
proposed Alma Mater Society
constitution changes.
Rather than defending and
promoting student interests as is
maintained by the present AMS
executive which supports the
referendum, the proposed changes
in the constitution run directly
counter to the interests of the
student body on this campus.
Why say this of changes touted
as the most important step forward
since the writing of the present
AMS constitution in 1947?
The problem with the new
constitution is most succinctly put
in the addition which is made to the
"Objects" of the AMS in Section 2
of the proposal, item (c): "To
promote the principle and practise
of student representation at all
levels of decision making at "the
university" and on all agencies or
other bodies which deliberate on
the affairs of its members."
It is this "principle" of the activity of the AMS and the subsequent structural changes which
flow from it that constitute the
major changes and problems of the
new constitution.
It is not in the interests of
students to accept this "principle"
of participation on the administrative bodies of the
university, or, worse, to accept
that the activities and
deliberations of the board of
governors and the senate provide
the framework for the existence
and activities of the student union
at UBC.
The UBC administration has
nothing in common with the
students at this university. The
administration operates in the
interests (and the pay) of the
education department and is
immediately subject to the fiscal
and legislative policies of the
provincial government. When the
government cuts its education
spending the administration
"administers" those cuts, which
means cuts in the quality of
That is exactly what Dailly's 15
per cent ceiling on budget increases is going to mean over the
next year at universities across the
province. And you can be sure that
the administration at UBC, whose
main interest is keeping their jobs,
will administer this attack on
education in the same manner as
their cohorts in the administrations at the community
colleges across the province have
done this year.
And cuts in education spending
always means cuts in enrolment,
discriminatory policies as to who
should and who should not have
access to a university education.
Hence already this year we have
the great debate over English
language requirements of UBC
students and whether or not to
introduce entrance exams as a
requirement for admission to the
In other words, who is it that the
administration has its eyes on to
hit first when it comes to cutting
enrolment? The immigrant
students. That is exactly who got
cut first at the community colleges
this fall — the immigrant students
in the English language training
On this and all other issues on
campus, issues of democratic
rights, of extending the quality and
availability of university education
to all working people in B.C. — on
these issues the administration
stands on the other side of the
fence. We students cannot afford
the pretence of sitting on the fence,
making representations to these
administrative bodies in the hopes
that somehow we can "change
their heads" and make them see it
our way. They will not defend us,
they would lose their jobs.
What students need to defend
their interests and to organize their
activities is a strong and
democratic AMS independent of all
administrative bodies.
The present AMS executive
motivates their proposed changes
by arguing that participation on
the administrative bodies would
bring students into open "conflict"
with the administration and would
thus stimulate more political involvement of students in university
affairs, rendering the AMS a more
"relevant" body. These sentiments
might be alright but the proposal is
all wrong.
Sure students have an interest in
knowing what goes on in the
meetings of the administration.
Sure, finding out what the board of
governors is up to would open up
the eyes of a lot of students to the
need to organize in defense of their
own interests. But the way of
achieving that is not by attempting
to get a "representative voice"
heard in these meetings of the
administration and in getting all
bogged down in the bureaucratic
functioning of that body.
Rather, we should use the independent strength of a student
union to force the administration to
open its books, to publish the
minutes of all its meetings, and to
deny them any special "in
camera" sessions Students need
their own organization, "no strings
attached," in which to discuss how
best to take on the administration
in the interests of students.
This is what the students at the
community colleges found this
year in defending themselves from
the cuts in education spending. In
the process of fighting those cuts,
students at the Vancouver
Vocational Institute and BCVS
have organized to set up student
unions for the first time.
The old AMS constitution suffers
many problems, but it should be
maintained over this present
proposal because it is based in the
principle of student organization
independent of administrative
structures. Once we have defeated
this proposed change we should set
ourselves the task of rewriting the
old'constitution on the basis of that
principle which it defends.
One of the first things we should
do is to democratize the old constitution — get rid of some of the
restrictive by-laws with regards to
the rights of political groups on
campus. We should also ensure
that any major changes in the
constitution, such as those that are
being proposed, have to come to a
general assembly of all students
for discussion and debate before
being put to a vote.
In order to lay the basis for that
kind of discussion of a new constitution for an independent and
democratic student society we
have to defeat the new constitution
at the polls this week. Students
should get out and vote, and they
should vote NO.

In the past few weeks, the
student body has been made aware
of the drafting of a new constitution
for the student government of
UBC. From Nov. 17 to 21 there will
be an election, which, given the
current state of ignorance of the
student body concerning this
document, will almost certainly
assure its implementation.
The current AMS wants you to
vote YES. But, I believe that if
those of us who pay through the
nose for the questionable privilege
of membership in the AMS fully
realized the consequences of such a
vote, they would more likely vote
In general, the new constitution
is not a bad piece of work. For
example, the case for decentralization of student government
is fairly commendable. In that
regard it would be more efficient

If ever a legal document had a

appointed positions would be filled
by friends, it would be naive to
expect that they would necessarily

Rugger win hides class struggle
In an effort to appease such

Mostar have been enlisted to add a
more meaningful political angle to

In the Nov. 13 issue of The

writing in the paper was useless.
Such traditional writing presented
a political dichotomy in the paper.

Six penalty kicks by UBC's
counter-revolutionary scrum half
Preston Wiley lifted the Thunderbird rugby team to an 18-16
victory over the Meralomas.
The international imperialist
plot to run the working class
members of the proletarian scrum
into the ground was much in
evidence as the bourgeois back-
field, lead by that running dog
lackey of capitalism John
Billingsley, were content to kick
the ball back and forth. Such
strategy was designed to force our
downtrodden comrades of the pack
to run their exploited legs off.
It has long been known that the
cunning bourgeois backs have
attained their fame and glory in
the crazed eyes of the capitalistic
world by exploiting the proletariat
scrum. How could the 'Birds
demonstrate their fancy glory-
seeking running attack if the
scrum didn't get them the ball?
The people's revolution will
come when the proletariat scrum
breaks free of the oppressive
running dog lackies of the back-
field who prosper on the fruits of
the workers' labor.
One need only observe the
makings of a scrum to see just how
oppressed our comrade on the
rugger pitch are. The workers are
forced to bend down, clambering
on each other's backs, and ram
their heads into the heads of the
other team's own oppressed
workers. In the meantime the
capitalist backs stand by, observing the writhings of the
working class.
Puck 'Birds start by losing two
The Thunderbird hockey team
had no trouble losing two games to
the University of Alberta Golden
Bears, playing their worst games
The 'Birds played Friday and
Saturday night and lost 6-3 and 4-0.
The game on Friday was tied
three all going into the last five
minutes of the game. The 'Birds
collapsed, and Alberta notched
three straight goals.
In the Saturday game, UBC was
never in it. Both teams started
slowly in the first period, tired
after the Friday match. Neither
dominated play. The 'Birds outshot
Alberta, but most of their efforts
were weak. The Bears attack
obliged UBC goalie Ron Lefebvre
to come up with some big saves.
In the second period, the Bears
began to take advantage of UBC's
inept play. The 'Bird defence got
caught in the offensive end twice
and gave up two goals. Lefebvre
stopped the initial shot both times
but was beaten on the rebound.
The Thunderbird volleyball team
took two wins in B.C. Senior Men's
play by beating Richmond and the
University of Victoria Vikings
Sunday. The 'Birds also play in the
Canada West league, where they
have won their first two matches.
It looks like they will be the team to
beat in both leagues.
* * *
Seven members of the UBC
Thunderbird football team have
been elected to the Western Intercollegiate Football League
allstar team.
Gord Penn, the fullback who
became the first UBC player to
ever gain more than 1,000 yards in
a season, led the way. Penn
finished third in league rushing
with 789 yards, and rushed for the
balance in non-conference games.
Three other 'Birds were named
to the offensive team: Dan Smith
at quarterback, tight end Evan
Jones, and tackle Al Cameron.
Smith was second in league
passing. Jones was second among
league receivers.
Safety Vic Wasilenko, middle
linebacker Marsh MacLeod, and
end John Turecki were named to
the defensive team.
It marks the first time in two
years that UBC has had anyone
named to the team.
# # #
UBC's basketball teams both lost
to Alberta on the weekend. The
'Birds dropped 58-57 and 77-56
decisions in contests marked by
bad UBC shooting. The Thunderettes showed early season
inexperience, succumbing 59-43
and 56-43 to the Pandas.
UBC skated as well as the Bears,
but that's as far as it went. They
had trouble passing, shooting, and
took silly penalties. In the third
period, the 'Birds were short-
handed 16 minutes out of the 20.
The reason for UBC's bad play is
the lack of competition Alberta has
played games against the
universities of Denver and
Toronto. The 'Birds have played
Powell River and the North Shore
Hurry Kings.
Over the Christmas break, the
Bears will play 14 games, the
'Birds none. UBC coach Bob
Hindmarch feels that for the team
to do well the Men's Athletic
Association will have to increase
the team's budget.
As it is, the 'Birds will have to
wait until after the holidays to play
the Bears again. Hindmarch said
he doesn't think the Bears can play
as well as they did all season, so
the 'Birds might fare better in the

The key to the oppression is the
scrum half who treacherously
destroys any unity developing
between the two working class
groups by throwing the ball in for
them to fight over.
In Saturday's match against the
'Lomas, this diabolical plot was
spiced up by the continued kicking
of the backfield. The workers were
forced to continually run up and
down, form rucks, mauls and
lineouts only to get the ball to the
backs who would then kick it once
The bourgeois Wiley opened the
scoring with a penalty goal at five
minutes to set up a short 3-0 lead. A
pressing 'Lomas side gamely
fought back and took a 7-0 lead.
Shortly before the half comrade
Frank Carson and comrade Dave
Eburne moved the ball up field
with a brief display of UBC's
running. An obstruction call on one
of the 'Lomas capitalist oppressors
set up another penalty goal by the
people's manipulator Wiley.
The diminutive enemy of the
masses added four more penalty
kicks in the second half.
The 'Lomas bourgeois continued
to hang up close to the 'Bird oppressors   Of   the   people   and
prevented an establishment of the
running game. When there were
brief flurries of running demonstrated by the 'Birds it was by a
member of the working class.
Second row comrade Ro Hindson
looked as though he might he
kindling an attack, if not the
revolution on a couple of occasions.
These isolated attempts to unshackle the chains of drudgery
were foiled by the hard tackling of
the 'Lomas.
It was probably the most boring
game UBC has been involved in for
several seasons. The lack of
running, whether because of fine
play by the opposition or poor
refereeing, is not the sort of offense
that is going to lead the 'Birds to
the counter-revolutionary heights
they attained last year. Such
dismal performances by the back-
field can only hasten the rise of the
workers of the scrum and the long-
awaited revolution.
One pessimistic sign that
emerged from the debacle was
with regard to the state of the
revolution in rugby. For the first
time in almost three years not one
attempt, or try as they are known
in rugby, was recorded by the UBC

This means, for one thing, that
Soviet vessels will be prowling
around the Strait of Juan de Fuca
to see what the Trident submarines
are up to.
Much more important, it means
that if there should be a war, attacking forces would have to
destroy the Trident base before
they struck anywhere else.
An attack on the base would
mean devastation of the

And since Soviet missiles are not
yet as accurate as their American
counterparts, there is no guarantee
that the base itself would be hit.
