 Militants strike for fee aid
Vol. LIV, No. 27 VANCOUVER, B.C., TUESDAY, JANUARY 16, 1973    °^jjj»48.    228-2301

WOULD YOU BUY a used play from this man? He's selling it every night until Saturday at the Freddy
Wood. It's the verse form of Moliere's Tartuffe and they say it's not bad, if a little used. This guy gets the
job of prematurely exposing Tartuffe as a cad and a bounder, when the supposedly saintly Tartuffe goes
after the guy's mother. His name is Damis and under the make-up is Lome Kennedy. See review P. 7.
LONDON (CUP) — Militant student action in the Ontario
fees strike scored another victory Friday when the University
of Western Ontario agreed to release student aid money to
students who haven't paid their second tuition instalment.
The adminstration concession followed an all-night sit-in at
the UWO fees office by about 40 students.
The action followed similar successful moves at York
University and York's Glendon College, where students earlier
last week occupied administrative offices and convinced officials to release student award cheques.
Both the York and UWO actions were the first displays of
student militancy on those usually staid campuses in recent
The UWO administration took the hardest line against
releasing student award money until second-term fees were
paid, although five other universities had agreed last month to
release the cheques.
The UWO students occupied their fees trailer Thursday
evening after an ad hoc student council meeting voted for the
move. First on their minds were the actions on the two York
campuses, and they decided to emulate the tactic.
When the students entered the building, officials suspended
the collection of fees, which had been proceeding until early in
the evening, and UWO vice-president of administration and
finances A.K. Adlington came and spoke to the students, advising them they could stay the night.
UWO president Carleton Williams spoke to student leaders,
to York president David Slater who had given in to identical
student demands the previous day, and to Jack McNie, minister
of colleges and universities. McNie advised Williams to release
the student aid money but give students a note saying the money
was granted on the condition tuition would be paid with it.
The occupying students voted to continue the sit-in through
the weekend until Ontario Premier William Davis appeared on
campus Sunday to address a convention of the Ontario Young
Progressive Conservative Association.
On Sunday students demanded Davis speak to them at the
occupied office but he refused, suggesting another building. The
,students refused and they marched over to the business administration building where Davis was addressing the PCs.
There the students engaged him in some discussion but he
dodged most questions, about education policy.
Some 2,500 students have reportedly not yet paid their full
fees at UWO. Observers say if the administration had agreed to
release the cheques at the beginning of the week rather than the
end, the number would be have been closer to 6,000. About 12,000
students attend UWO full-time.
The fight suffered a setback at the University of Windsor
only minutes after the UWO occupation had succeeded Firday.
About 20 Windsor students occupied their fees office and
chained the door, also demanding the release of student aid
money, but about 15 minutes later the chains were cut by
campus security officers.
The occupiers remained seated across the doorway but
students wanting to pay their fees were able to pick their way
through them.
"Business was normal," fees official Joseph Schiller said.
"In fact better than normal."
After a few minutes the occupiers decided to leave.
The University of Ottawa Students Federation has called off
the strike on its campus because only 14 students paid their fees
into the federation-sponsored trust fund, rather than pay to the
university. U. of O. administrators sent stern letters to students
warning them of late fees and de-registration procedures should
they fail to pay tuition.
"The letter really psyched out a lot of people," federation
president Peter Beach admitted. Beach's council tried to
organize the fee strike at U of O without belonging to the Ontario
Federation of Students which organized the strike province-
wide. U of O withdrew from OFS in the summer when other
schools refused Beach's demand for a September fees strike.
Meanwhile students at York and UWO are planning a
moratorium of classes Thursday to discuss the fee boycott.
Senate to discuss
student voting rights
minister Eileen Dailly asking
clarification of the act, as other
lawyers have interpreted it to
the contrary.
The discussion, to put it
mildly, promises to be furious
as faculty members and
student senators line up their
bias with the interpretation of
their choice.
Interested students,
malcontents and bomb-tossers,
who would like to observe the
happenings, should contact the
clerk of the senate, Frances
Medley, for visitors tickets,
phone 228-2951. "Only 30 tickets
are passed out for each
meeting, and 12 are gone
already," Medley said Monday.
Wednesday night's senate
meeting will include a
discussion of a senate report
recommending students not be
given voting representation at
faculty meetings.
The report, an interim brief
from the senate committee on
student representation, bases
its recommendation on a
disputed interpretation of the
universities act.
As reported in The Ubyssey,
Jan. 9, UBC lawyers have
interpreted the act to mean
students cannot be appointed
or elected as voting members
of a faculty.

Stewardesses organize against sexism
70 militant stewardesses,
representing stewardesses for
women's rights and the
stewardesses anti-defamation
defence league, have pledged
themselves to a drive designed
to organize all stewardesses
against sexist commercials,
books, and movies.
JoAnne Chaplain, organizer
of the stewardesses anti-
defamation defence league,
criticizes books such as How to
Make a Good Airline
Stewardess, movies such as
the        X-rated        Swinging
Stewardesses, and commercials with slogans such as
"Fly me" or "She'll Serve You
All The Way."
"It is all very annoying and
degrading," Chaplain said.
"Especially bad is that book
which has an especially lewd
and suggestive title."
Judi Lindsey, representative
of stewardesses for women's
rights, suggested that such
suggestive publicity often has
a definite effect on some male
passengers. "We are grabbed,
pinched, felt, and even slapped," she said.
Lindsey also rapped the
airlines' policy of forbidding
stewardesses from objecting to
offensive behavior on the part
of passengers because the
passenger may become angry
and choose another airline next
"We are guilty until proven
innocent," Lindsey said. "We
are always wrong and the
passenger is always right — no
matter what."
The stewardesses also
criticize the discriminatory
practices of the airlines. The
practices   include   physical
requirements for stewardesses but not for pilots;
requirements forcing
stewardesses to share crew
quarters while pilots are
allowed private quarters;
requirements that stewardesses remain single while
pilots are allowed to marry;
and requirements of underwear inspection for women
crew members.
One stewardess said: "We
want to get across that we are
dedicated, hardworking girls
who resent being labeled as
anything else by idiots who are
making money by slandering
Cornelius Wohl, author of
How to Make a Good Airline
Stewardess, recently cancelled
an 11-city promotional tour
after a verbal showdown with
Chaplain on a New York radio
"I have never in my life
encountered such an arrogant
humorless person," Wohl said.
"She just goes to prove my
thesis that airline stewardesses are a bunch of
humorless broads."
The power infrastructure at UBC is
in the final throes of its ringing out the
old and ringing in the new.
In the last two or three years we
have seen the appointment of
numerous "young" deans and
department heads such as Liam Finn
in applied science, Bert McClean in
law, and Alan Cairns (about to be
appointed in political science.
One department which has not yet
succumbed to the new wave is history.
Ruled by Margaret Ormsby in what
most faculty members call "a feudal
manner," she is a contemporary of
administration president Walter Gage.
Unlike Gage (67), however, she has
more or less accepted the fact that she
will be retiring in one year at age 65.
Speculation lately around the
department concerns who will be her
successor. The administration
favorite, without a doubt, is history
prof John Norris, despite the fact that
he once ran provincially for the NDP.
Norris, an erratic, arrogant, and
eccentric senate member is known
politically as a red tory.
Unfortunately he is regarded by his
fellow faculty members as a junior
version of what has gone on before, old
school tie (UBC) and all.
Norris has been playing it cool for
some time — being careful not to be
caught on the losing side in any
departmental squabbles. As one
faculty member stated Monday, "he is
just plain opportunistic."
Five other professors in the
department have some chance of
taking the plum(?) away from Norris.
Ivan Avakumovic and John Conway
both see themselves in the running but
outside their few friends they are
disliked, basically by the younger
faculty. They have annoyed too many
Harvey Mitchell is sort of a long
shot despite the fact that he was the
department head at the University of
Calgary before coming to UBC. His
own personal transformation within
the last two years to being student
oriented will stand him in good stead
with the honors and majors students
who seem to have a growing voice in
departmental affairs.
The most realistic alternative is
Canadian historian Leslie Upton. An
easy going fellow he is generally well
regarded by a number of other profs in
the department.
Margaret Prang is perhaps the one
most qualified for the job. She is an
extremely competent administrator
and probably would get total commitment from the Canadian history
group within the department.
There are however two reasons why
she won't get the job. First, she is only
an associate professor and in the still
stuffily formal history department this
will be a mark against her.
Second, she is a woman in a
department which is sick of being ruled
by a iron-fisted woman. As such there
will be some transference of this dislike
to Prang because of her sex (objectivity rules supreme).
While it is customary for a retiring
department head to take his or her last
year as a sabbatical year, this will not
be the case with Ormsby. She plans to
stick it out to the end thus causing
Norris to be appointed as pro-tem head
for an indefinite length of time
following the pattern set in the appointment of Walter Gage to the office
of president of UBC.
One faculty member, who asked to
remain anonymous, described Orm-
sby's impending retirement wistfully
as "the end of an era; like Queen
Elizabeth I she will be remembered for
her longevity, political sagacity and

Banned for cattle, not women
Cancer link in day-after pill
Diethylstilbestrol (DES), a synthetic
estrogen used in the so-called 'morning after' pill, has been temporarily
suspended in Canada since Jan. 1.
"DES has been positively implicated
as a human carcinogenic (cancer-
causing) agent," said Meriam Doucet,
chairperson of the pesticide committee
of the B.C. Environmental Council.
"However, the ban applies only to the
use of DES as a growth stimulant for
poultry and cattle," Doucet said
Friday. "Diethylstilbestrol may still be
prescribed for medical use in the
treatment of human beings."
DES was used widely in North
America in the 1940s and early 1950s as
therapy for women with high-risk
pregnancies. It is used in the treatment
of men suffering from prostate cancer.
Diethylstilbestrol is also the active
chemical ingredient in the currently
available 'morning after' pill.
In an interview with the Sun on Dec.
14, Dr. A. N. Johnson, director of
student health services, said the
pill is given to students on request, but
there is no evidence the drug produces
cancer in the women who take it.
Edward T. Tyler, medical director of
the family planning centres of Los
Angeles, describes the 'morning after'
pill as a "potent synthetic estrogen of
the type used in present birth control
"Properly it should not be termed
'morning after' pill because the present
dosage schedule for the estrogen
usually requires 5 days of intensive
treatment, 25 milligrams of estrogen a
day, after exposure to risk of
pregnancy," said Tyler.
Tyler said the most generally employed estrogens for this purpose are
ethinyl-estradiol and diethylstilbestrol,
both given in quantities almost a
thousand times the amount of
estrogens used in present oral contraceptives.
The 'morning after' pill, is usually
prescribed on an emergency basis
only. Its effectiveness is difficult to
determine because it is unknown that
the woman is actually pregnant at the
time the pill is prescribed.
Ralph Nader, in a report to the U.S.
food and drug administration, charged
that diethylstilbestrol is a cancer-
causing agent.
Dr. Johnson told the Sun "the
charges made by Nader's health
research group are not supported by
the best qualified physicians and
researchers working on the question of
the possible cancer-producing action of
Johnson told The Ubyssey Friday
that women requesting the 'morning
after' pill are warned diethylstilbestrol
may cause cancer.
"They don't seem to care, no one has
refused to take the pill, and 20 to 30 per
cent don't come back for follow-up
interviews," he said.
Johnson said the women are more
concerned about stopping a possible
pregnancy than they are about
developing cancer from using the drug.
He refuses to say how many women
have requested the 'morning after' pill
from health services.
A student who requested the 'morning after' pill from health services
told The Ubyssey she was warned it
was a contraceptive to be used only
"I was told it was not good or advisable to make a habit of taking it,"
she said.
She was told the 'morning after' pill
was a new treatment, but statistics to
date had not shown any ill effects.
"The after effects of the pills were
unpleasant but bearable," she said,
"nausea, diarrhea, depression, faint-
ness and tiredness, but I was warned I
might feel a couple of these."
She was told by health services that
quite a few women were requesting the
'morning after' pill.
"That, coupled with the difficulty I
had locating a nearby drug store that
wasn't out of pills, seems to indicate
the numbers are high," she said.
Recent reports in the medical
literature have alerted physicians to a
hazard of diethylstilbestrol therapy —
namely, , the development of
adenocarcinoma of the vagina in young
women whose mothers used stilbestrol
during pregnancy.
Dr. Robert Hatcher of the Emory
University school of medicine in
Atlanta, Ga. said:"women should be
warned in advance of the potential
hazard of DES to the fetus. The doctor
should consider carefully whether a
woman should be given stilbestrol as a
'morning after' pill if she would not
choose to terminate her pregnancy in
the event that the stilbestrol treatment
was ineffective in preventing
pregnancy," he said.
Between 1966 and 1969 Dr. Howard
Ulfelder and Dr. Arthur Herbst of the
Massachusetts General Hospital
reported   eight   cases   of   adenocar
cinoma of the vagina in young girls
ranging from 15 to 22 years of age.
Because cancer of the vagina is rare,
occurring usually in women over 50,
Ulfelder and Herbst began searching
for factors associated with tumor
appearance in young women.
The results of this investigation,
published in April, 1971 in the New
England Journal of Medicine, shows a
"a highly significant association
between the treatment of pregnant
women with estrogen diethylstilbestrol
and the subsequent development of
adenocarcinoma of the vagina in their
Ulfelder tentatively concluded that
"stilbestrol alters fetal vaginal cells in
uterus with changes that do not become
manifest in a malignant form until
years later."
Meriam Doucet said: "It is this long-
latency period which makes the
medical use of DES dangerous,
because it makes it more difficult to
determine the effects of the drug."
Dr. Peter Greenwald from the New
York state department of health cancer
control bureau confirms the
association of vaginal adenocarcinoma
in young women, with stilbestrol
therapy of their mothers during
In the Aug. 12, 1971 issue of NEJM,
Greenwald said: "The observation that
mothers of the young women with
adenocarcinoma of the vagina had
synthetic estrogens during pregnancy
confirms the association previously
reported by Ulfelder and Herbst."
"There can no longer be doubt that
synthetic estrogens are absolutely
contraindicated in pregnancy,"
Greenwald said.
Meriam Doucet said leading cancer
specialists estimate chemicals cause 80
to 90 per cent of cancers in humans.
"From the reported medical
evidence, there is no doubt that DES
causes cancer," Doucet said.
In his latest article in the Dec. 22,
1972 issue of NEJM, Dr. Arthur Herbst
said 91 cases of adenocarcinomas of the
vagina and cervix in young females
had been reported before June 1, 1972.
"That figure is now well over one
hundred," said Doucet.
Doucet said the medical use of
diethylstilbestrol in the 'morning after'
pill increases our potential exposure to
the drug. "We have without knowing it,
been exposed to large quantities of
DES already," she said.
Prior to the banning of the drug in
Canada as an animal feed supplement,
DES had become a regular but hidden
ingredient in our food supply.
In Atlantic Monthly (Oct., 1972
issue), Harrison Wellford, a member of
Ralph Nader's health research group
said: "Diethylstilbestrol is fed to about
75 per cent of the 30 million cattle
slaughtered each year in Canada and
the U.S."
"DES makes animals fatten faster
on less grain, thereby saving cattlemen
some $90-million annually," Wellford
"Until April, 1971, when Ulfelder and
Herbst's first report was published,
cattlemen took refuge in the fact that
DES had not been linked to cancer in
human beings," said Wellford.
"The suspension of DES will not
prevent the use of hormones as feed
supplements," Doucet said. "It just
means that another, more expensive
estrogen, perhaps equally as harmful
as DES will be used."
Dr. M. Stokes, in the Journal of
Surgery, Obstetrics and Gynecology
said: "Long continued, repeated administration of relatively small doses
of estrogenic substances may intensify
tissue response to the hormone."
Dr. Peter Greenwald in NEJM, said:
"There are many unknowns in the
epidemiology of the stilbestrol relation
to vaginal adenocarcinoma:
• Is there a critical time in em-
bryogenesis for this effect to be induced?
• Will other estrogens, if used in the
same manner, have the same effect?
• Will other types of cancer also
develop in men and women?
• Will a longer induction period be
necessary for those who receive a
smaller dose?"
Meriam Doucet said the continued
medical use of diethylstilbestrol increases our exposure to the drug. "Our
knowledge of the dangers of the drug
may have come too late," she said.
"College women are being used as
guinea pigs without even the most
rudimentary observance of
professional standards and informed
consent," Nader's research group
Dr. Johnson said Friday he would not
knowingly administer a carcenogenic
drug if it could be avoided.
The University of Toronto health
services announced in December it
would no longer distribute the 'morning
after' pill. Page 4

"H mmmmm, interesting. . ."
"Yes, very."
We're referring to the letters-to-the-editors section of
this newspaper, or any newspaper.
The letters section, you see, is a mainstay of journalism.
It's the section where the Patricia Youngs of the world get
their chance to natter about the cosmic realities of an
unfolding universe and dogs peeing on rhododendrons.
Recent topics include apathy (as usual), celery
crunching in Sedgwick, how to make an instrument
(musical) from an oven rack, and several other items of
The letters section is demonstrably a major artery, nay,
the left auricle, of the pulsating centre of information that
is a newspaper. It is a guiding beacon in the editor's eternal
search for truth, beauty and increased circulation.
It is therefore with some interest that we note the two
major subjects of recent interest to our correspondents have
been god and crabs, not necessarily in that order.
This means something.
It doesn't necessarily mean the average letter-to-the
editor writer is a bible-thumper with itchy pubes. But it
does mean something.
It means it is a safe assumption that people are
interested in these things.
It doesn't mean we are prepared to devote countless
columns of space to these topics.
But we tend to give space to the things we are
interested in.
At the moment we're interested in crabs. Also cures for
crabs. Just in case, you understand. Our readers also seem
interested in crabs. Conversely, crabs seem interested in our
Therefore there'll be a "cures for the crabs" article in
the very next issue of The Ubyssey. Hopefully it will
supplement the many interesting and varied remedies
brought to our attention by our readers.
So keep those cards and letters rolling in (preferably
typed and double-spaced). Weird ones especially.
Remember, you saw it in The Ubyssey.
Now there's a topic. How about some letters on
venereal warts, folks?
Elections are boring but unfortunately necessary.
Elections have become so boring at UBC that for the
last couple of years many Alma Mater Society positions
have been acclaimed.
The end result of this trend is student government
without a purpose or a program.
This year we would like to see some people run who are
imaginative, dedicated, principled, responsible and nice. Or
at least fit three of the above criteria.
We're tired of self-seeking people who run only to
further their future business or political careers. We're tired
of people who are not interested in fighting for better
services and academic programs for students. We're tired of
ravers, goody-goodies and cowards.
Anyway all this leads up to the fact that nominations
are open for AMS executive positions. Energetic and
progressive people should apply before Feb. 1 for the first
slate and Feb. 15 for the second slate.

Majority ?
I would like to address a few
words to the majority of arts
students, who, like myself up to
this point, have either ignored the
whole question of student representation in faculty affairs, or
have not mustered up the courage
to present their (shudder) more
conservative views on the subject.
In view of the mild response
from this faction of the student
body to the AUS questionnaire
which has been "circulated" in
BRIAN LOOMES AND BILL MOEN ... rocking the boat
the past week, it has become
apparent that very few people are
concerned enough to fill it out
negatively, and this lack may be
easily open to misinterpretation.
It should be brought to the attention of these people suffering
from laryngitis of the fingers, that
their silence will be interpreted by
the powerful and perhaps misguided few who are agitating for
change as support for their views.
It is reported in The Ubyssey,
Friday, January 12, 1973, in the
article Politics over principle in
arts meet, that "the top art of
(the) questionnaires... were indeed   positive,   but   the   ques
tions ... such as inclusion of students in tenure and promotion...
were split." It should be noted
that the manner in which the
questions on the questionnaire
were phrased invited an affirmative answer in their vagueness,
and a person who had not been
openly aware of the proceedings
to date could not possibly be
expected to understand all the
implications of the proposal by
the students and could easily have
voiced a quick, positive, supportive action.
It is imperative that the average, possibly more conservative
student, must get out and express Tuesday, January 16, 1973
Page 5
a desire to see the results of this
questionnaire if only to protect
himself from being exploited In
order to avoid this exploitation, it
is necessary that this group become vocal and provide a steadying influence for this precariously
rocking boat.

And why not? Twelve of the
100 members of senate are students, but there never has been a
student on the BoG.
Well, they'd heard this one a
hundred times or more. While
faculty members snickered chairman Walter Gage patiently ruled
the motion out of order.
It would infringe upon the
democratic right of senators to
vote for whoever they pleased,
student or not! It would contravene the Universities Act! Students lacked experience! and
anyway, there was nothing stopping any student senator from
running for the BoG, was there?
Well, we've heard this one a
thousand times or more. It's probably not what the senate will tell
the New Democratic Party government, which is committed to
restructuring the BoG to provide,
in part, just such representation as
I had proposed. In other words,
senate sat on its collective ass and
let the government take the initiative.
So "they" are repressive, auth-
oitarian, conservative, etc.
So what?
So people who live in glass
houses shouldn't throw stones.
So I move that all the male
student politicos on this campus
accept in principle, that half of all
student representatives should be
But it will infringe upon the
democratic right of students to
vote for whoever they please,
male or female! Women lack experience! It will contravene the
Alma Mater Society constitution!
And anyway, there's nothing stopping any woman from running for
any office, is there?
AMS elections are near, and I
think that all the male politicos
should stand up and be counted
on this one.
I think this principle of guaranteed equal representation for
women will eventually become
part of our constitution. Until
then, there's an easy way to ensure that it operates and to see
who really supports it. Every male
student office holder or committee member will be replaced only
by a woman, and vice versa
In other words: no male candidates this year, for any of the
AMS offices now held by men. If
that makes the AMS top heavy
with women next year, what does
that mean about its present structure?
It will be embarassingly easy to
spot the male student politicos
who think this is really much too
radical. They'll be out there upholding motherhood, waving the
flag, choking down whole apple
pies, and sounding suspiciously
like faculty members who don't-

was light and visibility excellent,
instead of the icy, rutted, rather
poorly maintained "cycle path." I
was happily making my way home
when I saw one of our gay, brave

the road and the advantages of
riding the cycle path. I was, of

UFW boycotts Safeway in 'States
SACRAMENTO, Calif. (CUPI) — The United Farm
Workers has announced a nationwide boycott of the Safeway
and A&P chain food stores.
The announcement is the latest action in the nationwide
lettuce boycott that began in August, 1970. Asking consumers
not to shop at Safeway and A&P is intended to convince the two
stores to co-operate with the lettuce boycott by ordering United
Farm Worker iceberg lettuce or no lettuce at all.
The secondary boycott of the giant retailers follows a series
of meetings between representatives of the United Farm
Workers and the heads of the two chains.
A&P and Safeway each have annual sales of $5.5 billion and
control 20 per cent of the nation's grocery market. A spokesman
for the Farm Workers said that the two chains have the
economic power to bring about a change for the better.
"We feel that Safeway and A&P are not innocent bystanders but have a moral responsibility to the farm workers who
make it possible for them to sell their fresh fruit and
vegetables," he said.
In Los Angeles, a consumer group has formed to follow up
reports of violations of wage and price controls, false advertising, and excessive fat content in meat in Safeway stores.
The boycott of the chains comes less than a week after a
decision by the International Brotherhood of Teamsters to
renegotiate lettuce contracts signed with growers in 1970. The
Teamsters Union has also decided to start a drive to organize
other field workers, despite jurisdictional agreements with the
With most of the grape contracts that were signed with the
United Farm Workers coming up for renewal soon, the outcome
of the lettuce boycott is crucial. If the lettuce growers are
successful in keeping the United Farm Workers out of the fields,
the grape growers may decide it is worth their while not to
reopen negotiations on their contracts.
The Canadian government is presently prosecuting Canada
Safeway Ltd. under the Anti-Combines legislation for allegedly
maintaining monopolies in Calgary and Edmonton.

Tartuffe 'bothering*
The comedies of Moliere seem to be    Tartuffe.   The   result   is   a   funny   and
standard fare in contemporary theatre.
Klaus Strassman has chosen to present
Tartuffe as his contribution to the Freddy
Wood season and the production is entirely
I tend to be bothered however by the
relative slightness of a playwright whom
many would place in the same ranks with
Tartuffe by Moliere, directed by Klaus
Strassman. Set and lighting by Richard
Kent Wilcox, costumes by David L.
Lovett. At the Freddy Wood Theatre till
Jan. 20.	
Shakespeare. While I can appreciate
Tartuffe for its clever structure, style and
wit, I remain unimpressed by the depth of
its content. It is like a very good episode of
"All In The Family." It creates a situation
which illuminates human foibles and
presumably we are edified while we are
entertained. The current production is
great entertainment, but I would hesitate to
call the play great art.
In the preface to the 1669 version of
Tartuffe, Moliere writes, "If the purpose of
comedy be to chastise human weaknesses I
see no reason why any class of people
should be exempt." Throughout his career
as resident dramatist to the court of Louis
XIV, Moliere turned out plays which held
up to ridicule many aspects of the society of
that age. His insights into human nature,
while not particularly profound, are
universal and, as we have continued to
display the same vices and weaknesses
over the centuries, Moliere's works are not
irrelevant today. The lovers' quarrel
between Mariane and Valere, for instance,
must be common to us all in some form. We
laugh at the ridiculous characters but only
with a certain amount of self consciousness.
Even so, Moliere's plays do not carry the
same punch as they did in the seventeenth
century. After Tartuffe was first performed at a celebration for the Sun King's
mistress, it was suppressed on the grounds
that it was anti-religious and damaging to
the general public. The extent to which
religious hypocrites such as Tartuffe held
power in the court became evident after
Moliere found himself unable to present his
play for five more years.
The play deals with the consequences
which befall an aristocratic family when
the master of the house falls under the
influence of a religious hypocrite named
thoroughly entertaining piece of theatre
which is a warning to all of us who would,
like the aristocrat Orgon, attempt to
become virtuous by sacrificing ourselves to
the idea of virtue.
Klaus Strassman's production of Tartuffe is bold, well-paced and entirely
captivating from beginning to ridiculous
ending. The cast is uniformly excellent,
playing each part with an extravagant flair
which accentuates the foibles of a particular character. It is a credit to the actors
that they manage such a flamboyant style
without allowing their parts to become
mere caricatures. Although I felt that at
times Marigold Semple overplayed the part
of the maid Dorine, her zesty performance
is definitely a pleasure to watch. Raymond
Clarke is a flabby and truly repulsive
Tartuffe while Susan Wright gives a strong
performance as Elmire. It would be difficult to find fault with any of the other
Streassman took a bit of a risk when he
chose to use the verse translation of Tartuffe but, in every case, it is delivered with
ease and clarity. It is a real delight to find
this seldom-heard form presented so
Once again Richard Kent Wilcox has
designed a fine set for the Freddy Wood
Stage. This time it is an elegant and austere
room in muted tones which provides a
perfect background for the rich and
gorgeous costumes designed by David L.
One cannot come away from this
production of Tartuffe without
congratulating Strassman on his treatment
of the play's ending. Moliere winds up
Tartuffe with speeches in homage to the
king who, like the gods in Greek drama,
steps in and saves the day. While one can
understand Moliere's reasons for glorifying
his benefactor in such a manner and can
perhaps even see some irony in the
speeches, the ending is quite unacceptable
to modern audiences.
Strassman chooses to spare good taste
and instead creates an hilariously extravagant joke out of an otherwise
disappointing finish.
The Freddy Wood production of Tartuffe
is beautifully executed comedy, good entertainment, and,^bove all, great fun.

Historical role
forces showdown
From The Uniter
I have been asked by many friends here,
especially among the students, to give them my
opinion, based on talks with many people in
different regions of this country, Jews and
Arabs, and based on rather extensive readings
of documents and secondary literature. I am
fully aware of its limitations; I offer it merely
as a contribution to the discussion.
I believe that the historical goal which
motivated the foundation of the State of Israel
was to prevent a recurrence of the concentration camps, the pogroms, and other
forms of persecution and discrimination. I fully
adhere to this goal which, for me, is part of the
struggle for liberty and equality for all persecuted racial and national minorities the
world over.
Under present international conditions,
pursuance of this goal pre-supposes the
existence of a sovereign state which is able to
accept and protect Jews who are persecuted or
live under the threat of persecution. If such a
state would have existed when the Nazi regime
came to power, it would indeed have prevented
the extermination of millions of Jews. If such a
state would have been open also to other persecuted minorities, including the victims of
political persecution, it would have saved still
many more lives.
In view of these facts, the further discussion
must be based on the recognition of Israel as a
sovereign state and on consideration of the
conditions under which it was founded that is to
say, the injustice done to the native Arab
The establishment of Israel was a political
act, made possible by the great powers in
pursuit of their own interests. The period of
settlement prior to the establishment of the
state and the establishment itself proceeded
without due regard to the rights and interests of
the native population.
The foundation of the Jewish State involved,
from the beginning, the displacement of the
Palestinian people, partly by force, partly
under pressure (economic and otherwise),
partly "voluntary." The part of the Arab
population that remained in Israel found itself
reduced in spite of the granting of civil rights,
to the economic and social status of secondary
citizens. National, racial, religious distinctions
became class distinctions; the old contradiction within the new society, aggravated
by the merger of internal and external conflicts.
In all these aspects, the establishment of the
Jewish State is not essentially different from
the origins of practically all states in history:
establishment by conquest, occupation,
discrimination. (The endorsement by the
United Nations does not alter this situation: the
endorsement de facto recognized conquest.)
Accepting this accomplished fact and accepting the basic historical goal ... the State of
Israel as presently constituted and under its
present policies can be expected to achieve its
own aim while existing as a progressive society
in normally peaceful relations with its neighbors.
I shall argue this question with reference to
Israel's boundaries as of 1948. Any annexation
in whatever form would, in my opinion, already
suggest a negative answer. It would mean that
Israel could preserve itself only as a military
fortress in a vast hostile environment, and that
its material and intellectual culture would be
geared to growing military requirements. If
this were at present the only solution, it's
dangerously precarious and temporary
character is all too evident. While a superpower (or its satelite) may well continue to
exist under such conditions a long time, the
smallness of the country, and the armament
policy of the super-powers preclude this
possibility for Israel.
Starting from the presently prevailing
conditions, the first prerequisite for a solution
is a peace treaty with the U.A.R. which would
include the recognition of the State of Israel and
free access to the Suez Canal and the Straits,
and a settlement of the refugee problem. I
believe that the negotiation of such a peace
treaty is possible now and that Egypt's reply to
Jarring (February 15, 1971) provides an acceptable basis for immediate negotiations.
Egypt's reply asks above all for an Israel
committment to withdraw its armed forces
from Sinai and the Gaza Strip. The argument
that this would open Israel to a devastating
Arab attack could be met by the establishment
of a demilitarized zone, protected by a neutral
U.N. force. The risk involved seems to me not
greater than the perpetuated risk of war under
present conditions. It is the stronger power
which can afford the larger concession — and
Israel still is the stronger power.
The status of Jerusalem may well turn out to
be the hardest impediment to a peace treaty.
Deeply rooted religious sentiment, constantly
played upon by the leaders, makes Jerusalem
as the capital of a Jewish state unacceptable to
the Arabs (and Christians?). A unified city
(both parts) under an international administration and protection seems to offer an
Just Settlement
The Egyptians' reply furthermore asks for a
"just settlement of the refugee problem in
accordance with U.N. resolutions." The wording of these resolutions (including Security
Council Res. 242) is open to interpretation and
to that extent itself subject to negotiations. I
shall outline only two possibilities (or their
combination) which were suggested in
discussions with Jewish and Arab personalities.
(1) Resettlement in Israel of those
Palestinians who were displaced and wish to
return. This possibility is from the beginning
limited by the extent to which Arab land has
become Jewish land, and Arab property Jewish
property. This is another historical fact which
cannot simply be undone without righting one
wrong. But it could be mitigated by resetting
these Palestinians on still available land, and
/or by giving them adequate facilities and
This solution is officially rejected with the
argument (correct in itself) that such return
would quickly transform the Jewish majority
into a minority and thereby defeat the very
purpose of the Jewish state. But I believe that is
precisely the policy aiming at a permanent
majority which is self-defeating. The Jewish
population is bound to remain a minority within
the vast realm of Arab nations from which it
cannot indefinitely segregate itself without
returning to ghetto conditions on a higher level.
To be sure, Israel would be able to sustain a
Jewish majority by means of an aggressive
immigration policy, which in turn would
constantly strengthen Arab nationalism. Israel
cannot exist as a progressive state if it continues to see in its neighbors The Enemy, the
Erbfiend. And lasting protection for the Jewish
people cannot be found in the creation of a self-
enclosed, isolated, fear-stricken majority, but
only in the coexistence of Jews and Arabs as
citizens with equal rights and liberties. Such
coexistence can only be the result of a long
process of trial and error, but the preconditions
for taking the first steps are given now.
There is a Palestinian people which has
lived for centuries on the territory part of which
is now occupied by Israel. The majority of these
people now. live in territories under Israeli
administration. These conditions make Israel
an occupying power (even in Israel itself) and
the Palestinian liberation movement a national
liberation movement — no matter how liberal
the occupying power may be.
(2) The national aspirations of the
Palestinian people could be satisfied by the
establishment of a national Palestinian state
alongside Israel. Whether this state would be
an independent entity, or federated with Israel
or with Jordan, would be left to the self-determination of the Palestinian people, in a
referendum under supervision by the United
The optimal solution would be the coexistence of Israelis and Palestinians, Jews and
Arabs as equal members in a socialist
federation of Middle Eastern states. This is still
a Utopian prospect. The possibilities discussed
above are interim solutions which offer
themselves now and here; to reject them
outright may well create irreparable damage.

The death of hockey
The Death of Hockey
Bruce Kidd and
John Macfarlane
The Peak
The second of three parts
Big money in hockey for everyone has
become fashionable only since expansion. At
the same time, the NHL Players Association
got off the ground with Alan Eagleson and
Bobby Orr.
With Orr the biggest hockey attraction
since Maurice Richard retired and the smooth
talking of Alan Eagleson, the salary of the
average hockey player has created a new
financial elite in Canada, the professional
hockey player.
Now, not only do the owners exploit the fans,
but so do the players. The Death of Hockey lays
down what has come before, what hockey used
to be like, and provides an alternative, but does
not recognize it as such.
The book looks at hockey, the way it was, the
development of pro hockey expansion in the
NHL and its side effects, the NHL's building of
a monopoly by the buying and selling of players
from the age of ten, the business of hockey. The
NHL is singled out for several areas of
grossness, the corrupting of amateur hockey to
develop NHL type players, the killing of the
community leagues and the selling out of the
National Team.
The book implicates most everyone who's
been involved with the game, the media not
excluded. It also presents what the authors feel
is the solution to the problem of the death of
hockey as Canada's national game.
Too nationalistic to sell south of the border,
the book is anti-American in that it is so pro-
Canadian. It cries about the selling of the game
south of the border and how the game has been
watered down to stretch a good product very
thin to gather all available money.
It deplores the fact that the game is entertaining rich American fans as opposed to
working class Canadian fans, and that the
whiskey has had to be watered down so much to
give everyone a taste, that the taste no longer
remains. "
A lot of emphasis is put on the decline of "the
fastest game on earth". It treats hockey as an
art form, and relies on nationalistic feelings' to
arouse Canadians to the plight of what once was
our national game. "We must save the game
and return it to Canada;" says the book. "Let's
develop professional community leagues within
the country and satisfy the player with $25,000 a
year as opposed to $100,000 he could make in the
NHL or the WHA. He'll have the satisfaction of
playing for his country.
"By establishing a national hockey institute
we can, once again, compete with the world's
best by upgrading the quality of the Canadian
The book presents no concrete solutions. The
alternatives suggested by the authors follow a
moderate socialist doctrine, they follow the
concept of institutionalization as a solution. But
the answers are in the problems and it's sad the
authors couldn't pick them up.
But the book is probably the best available
because of its complete look at the overall
situation. It gives a good historical perspective.
Rightly playing on people's sensibilities, the
book points out the process of alienation which
the hockey player faces from the time he
reaches adolescence and throughout his search
to play in the NHL or its present day rival, the
World Hockey Association. It shows- how the
players were/are exploited and channelled into
into a one-way street. Young boys are shipped
around the country to learn to play a game the
way the pros want it played because it is more
profitable to run a Junior A league in southern
Ontario than in other parts of the country.
Junior A hockey is the highest development
stage for pro material.
The average junior hockey player has but one
choice. Make the big leagues or sink, because if
he is not NHL material by the time he's twenty,
his hockey career is over. He can toil in the
minor professional leagues for poor money or
get a job in a factory or whatever manual labor
he can find, because he's halted his high school
education and usually has little chance of
getting back.
The book devotes a thirty page chapter entitled The Cheerleaders, exposing the buying
and selling of the media men. Several instances
are cited of those who have been bought and
those who "refused" to be bought. The NHL
relies on its good relationships with the
establishment press to ensure sellouts for their
games. For a while, when the NHL was small it
had to be careful not to step on anyone's toes.
Now that is has become a multi-million-dollar
organization, it just eliminates those who cause
lumps in the rug.
This following proposal is in keeping with the
alternatives suggested by the book.
"But a professional hockey league of our
own is not enough. Hockey will never be
ours as long as the NHL, or any other
privately  owned professional  league,
controls amateur hockey in Canada. Kids
will never learn to play the game for fun, to
pursue hockey to any level they want —
amateur, professional or whatever — until
we stop running minor hockey as if it were
a farm system for the NHL and the WHA. -
The CAHA must be liberated from its
financial dependence on the NHL. Only the
government, by providing the funds the
CAHA needs to operate, can do it. We must
also build more rinks and arenas, so that
hockey is no longer a game for only the
very young and the very talented."
These are necessary steps that must be
taken, except, if you encourage people to play
for money, the big time will get them. Kidd and
Macfarlane suggest,rin their book, a Canadian
professional league with a 44 game schedule.
The league would have 24 community-owned
teams,   with   the   players   earning   between
$25,000 and $30,000 a year. This would still keep
them in the top five per cent income bracket,
keeping them as removed from the public as
the present high-priced super stars which, I
suppose, is their reward for being nationalistic.
It is true that the schedule would be much
shorter,  the  travelling  much  less  and  the
players would remain closer to home. But what
is suggested is that we pamper and bribe these
stars to keep them in the country.
It is still me and you who'd be supporting
these people, it's still me and you who'll be
helping to create a new financial elite. $30,000 a
year does a lot to remove a person from the
working class.
To further confuse the issue, we are expected
to find enough patriotic Canadians of NHL
calibre to stock 21 new professional teams,
when we can hardly stomach the poorer 12
teams of the 16 team NHL, not to mention the 12
jokes in the WHA.
The idea of community-owned teams is good.
The idea of such teams paying people to play
and paying them such amounts as quoted is
however illogical. What is being proposed is
that people, who make their living from
hockey, are being asked to give themselves a
pay cut and that is all.
What you need is a complete alternative, in
purpose and goal. You can't tell Phil Esposito
and Frank Mahovolich that they should work
for less after spending seven to ten years to get
there and enjoying a career slightly longer than
The hockey career of a player is relatively
short. For a man who's spent his life in the NHL
system for a few short years at big money,
whose future rests on what he can make in
those years, you'd have to have some good
reasons for making him jump to a job that was
the same but paid less. He cares which side of
the border his job is on?
The book's proposal comes from a moderate
socialist perspective, based on nationalism. It
still calls for and relies on a class system. If you
expect the hockey player to remain in the
community, you'll have to redefine many goals,
reorientate more than just the player.

2 p.m. Thursday:
SFU is tangling with UBC in the first of two dual wrestling
meets scheduled between these two teams 2 p.m. Thursday.
This year Simon Fraser's win-loss record has been nothing
short of phenomenal. Their 14 straight wins in dual meet
competition carried them to the distinction of being the top
team in Canada last year.
Thursday at the War Memorial Gym, SFU and UBC will be
meeting on very equal terms. The 'Birds have Taras Hyrb, a
National Champion; Bob Ormond, fourth in the Nationals last
year; and George Richey, a powerful wrestler at both the 190
pound class and at Heavyweight. The Clansmen boast Steve
Martin and Kim Anthony who are both National Champions at
their respective weight classes.
Here is a note for avid t.v. watchers. This is NOT
professional wrestling. It's for real. There are no big, fat,
grotesque, good and bad guys. There are no fixed bouts, blind or
stupid referees, screaming old ladies, pulling of hair, stomping,
biting, scratching, gouging, etc. There will be wrestlers ranging
from 118 pounds up to Hwy. who will be grappling with other
athletes their own size. They are all in top shape. The bouts in
some cases will be very close and exciting. In cases of evident
superiority, they will be short and spectacular. Either way the
spectator cannot lose.
The most startling contrast between SFU and UBC lies in
their domination of specific weight classes. The Birds are unbeatable in the heavier categories where they have many of
their experienced wrestlers.
UBC's freshmen are grouped in the lower weights where SFU
has some domination. However, this domination is not quite
complete and it is expected that the freshmen will pull UBC out
of a possible tie situation and into a victory.
There will be ten bouts, one for each weight class. The bouts
are nine minutes in duration and are divided into three three-
minute rounds with one minute rest in between each round.
If at any time a wrestler is forced to place his back on the
mat for a count of one, the bout ends prematurely and the opponent declared the winner. However, if there is no fall (or pin)
in a bout, the wrestler with the greatest accumulation of points
is declared the winner.
Points are awarded for taking an opponent off his feet and
down to the mat (one point), turning his back to the mat (two
points), or turning his back to the mat for five seconds or more
(three points). Simple isn't it?

'Birds, 'Birdettes prey on Pronghorns
Two UBC basketball teams scored
victories Saturday night, while Leth-
bridge's Pronghorns remained bogged
in their interior element. (By my
theory, the exterior element is the air,
the interior element the earth.)
Liz Silcott blazed in the UBC
woman's basketball initiative; firing
passes quickly; and aggressively
scoring (16 points) until she consumed
herself in fouls.
Like graceful birds of prey in an
inland thermal Debbie Phalen and
Joanne Sergeant went turn about
picking up baskets, and between them
raised the UBC score 28 points — a
score which ended 30 points above
Lethbridge's 47.
The games like any diplomatic
mission gathered a group of the
curious. A batch of young kids like
pages from the past days of chivalry,
practiced baskets with an ardor found
only with the inexperienced.
A few old men change their seats,
friendly not so much with their neighbors as with their spirits — perhaps
called heroes in some past era but
now if they're called any name at all it
is probably wino.
But all the fanfare ended when the
Lethbridge men's team entered the
court. A serious crowd formed to look
on. Indeed it was such a crowd that the
snack bar downstairs saw it profitable
to open (a fact which may aid the
hungry student some Saturday night).
It is Lethbridge which drew first
blood. Soon under the leadership of Phil
Tollestrup they racked up a substantial
In the split second at the peak of a
jump shot Tollestrup is able to think
and act as though it were a complete
summer afternoon.
Aware of most of what is happening
on the court, he could nonchalantly
(almost in boredom) pass one-handed
half the court length to a teammate
momentarily in a key place to score.
Tollestrup's summer was cut short
Saturday by sudden foul weather. The
referees caught him breaking the rules
of the game; after ten minutes of play
he used up three of his five fouls. The
Lethbridge initial attack got them a
Pyrrhic victory. (For the jocks,
Pyrrhus was a Greek king who won a
costly victory against the Romans, but,
as a result of the losses he suffered, lost
the war.)
The coach called Tollestrup to the
bench for the rest of the first half —
afraid it seemed to use up his valuable
UBC then took back point by point the
lead blasted out by Lethbridge. Though
the first half scoring was dominated by
Stan Callegari (16 points in the first
half), there was no hint of unbalance —
UBC worked as a team.
At the end of the first half the score
stood 36-35 in favor of Lethbridge.
Then before the crowd could leave,
the UBC pom-pom girls began a routine
with the precision of a Las Vegas show

high school acts, they quickly lost their

Tollestrup was back in for the second

and received from Tollestrup in a
deadly manner. Where they had once
been leery of fouls it appeared that
conscious fouls were made to stop the

shots) to regain control.
It looked as though Lethbridge's
strategy might succeed especially

Young people
get fewer jobs
OTTAWA (CUP) — Unemployment hit young people harder
than ever in December.
The latest unemployment statistics show 12.2 per cent of the
labor force aged 14 to 24 were out of work last month after
allowances were made for seasonal fluctuations.
The figure represented an alarming .5 per cent increase
from November when the seasonally adjusted unemployment
figure for young people was 11.7 per cent.
December's 12.2 per cent position compares to an unemployment level of 6.8 per cent on a seasonally adjusted basis for
the entire Canadian labor force. Some 4.9 per cent of persons
over the age of 24 were unemployed — 5.2 per cent of the men
and 4.0 per cent of the women. Statistics Canada does not
provide sex breakdowns for laborers under the age of 25.
In November the spread between age groups was much
narrower. Unemployment then was only 6.6 per cent over-all
and for the 14-24 age group, it was 11.7.
As usual, the inability of the Canadian economy to create
jobs for all those who want work proved the direct cause for the
rising unemployment figures.
The statistics also reveal startling data about the growing
number of women entering the labor force.
The participation rate for women (the percentage of all
Canadian women now in the labor force) has climbed 2.7 per
cent since December 1970. Some 37.9 per cent of Canadian
women were in the labor force last month compared to 35.2 per
cent two years ago. Statistics show the participation rate has
undergone an uninterrupted increase during that time.
Meanwhile the participation rate for men has actually
declined, although the trend is not as pronounced.
In November 1970 some 75.5 per cent of Canadian men were
listed as being part of the labor force, compared to only 74.7 last
But the latest figure represents a slight increase from
December 1971 when the participation rate was 74.6 per cent.
On a regional basis, unemployment last month increased
most dramatically in British Columbia where it jumped to 8.3
per cent from 6.7 in November.
It was up to 5.2 per cent from 4.9 on the prairies. In Ontario
it declined to 5.0 from 5.2; in Quebec to 8.7 from 8.8; and in the
Atlantic provinces from 10.1 to 9.5.
Liberal rejects B.C. party
Liberal MLA Allan Williams said he believes there is little
chance of a united free enterprise opposition to the NDP in
British Columbia.
Speaking in SUB 111 Friday Williams said, "to unite the
free enterprise vote is possible only if we have a brand new
honest grass-roots political movement."
"Some people in B.C. today are seriously considering this
and have called the new movement the British Columbia
However Williams said he doubts such a union of forces is
viable as it would be impossible "to accommodate the various
shades of interest existing in the province under such a spectrum."
Williams said he just can't see the Liberals and Social
Credit getting together.
"There is no way, having criticized and rejected programs
of the Social Credit, that we could turn around and say we will
unite with you," he said.
Faced with such divisions and ill-feelings within opposition
ranks Williams said he looked toward other possible scenarios
to bring down the NDP government.
"One of the parties could hang on and do what the NDP did
over 20 years — consistently put forward the opposition point of
view and make themselves more attractive to the voter."
He said he thought the Liberal party would fulfill this role
"because we occupy the middle of the road and can attract a
larger segment of people than either of the other two parties."
Williams said the most likely collapse of the NDP government would'be through internal disagreements. He said the
rank and file may become dissatisfied by the government's
failure to follow through with their campaign promises.
"This is their most serious problem. The young New
Democrats are calling for pure socialism and this may interfere
with compromises Barrett and his government are willing to
He said the Liberals support most of the NDP's social
programs but felt the government was moving too quickly in
realizing them. "These social programs will be costly and
implementing them at such a speed will mean taking moves
through taxation that will be to the detriment of this province."
Williams said the main thrust of the Liberal opposition
would be on such financial matters.
He forecast trouble between the government and the
business community.
"The NDP is going to make some immature and unwise
economic moves," he said. "And that is where the basis of our
opposition will be."
Answering a question however, Williams said there was
little likelihood of the government being defeated in the next
"The honeymoon is still on," he said.
Pressed to put a time limit on the NDP's probable term of
office Williams smiled and said, "after 20 years of Social Credit
there is enough exciting legislation to make to sustain a competent party for 10 years."
"And that's without getting into the dirt," he added.
UBC Professors
Protest U.S. Bombing
We, the undersigned members of the faculty of the University of British Columbia, acting as individuals, wish to
express our revulsion at the recent American carpet bombing of Hanoi, Haiphong and other heavily populated
centres of North Vietnam, and our strong disapproval of the way in which the United States government broke off
negotiations to end the Vietnam war, when agreement seemed so near at hand. President Nixon s resort to mass terror
in an effort to enforce his own terms for a settlement will not bring genuine peace in Vietnam nearer. RatheV, it has
served only to compound death and misery for a people who have already suffered inordinately.
Fortunately, the timely protests of a number of foreign governments, including Australia, New Zealand,
Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark and Italy have apparently helped to persuade the Americans to halt
temporarily bombing North of the twentieth parallel. We believe that a forthright expression at this time of
Canada's firm opposition to continued American military intervention in South-East Asia might help to convince
the United States to abandon bombing for good, and to persist in negotiations until a peaceful solution has been
achieved. Past experience has repeatedly shown that failure to express publicly and forcibly the opposition to the
Vietnam war which is felt so widely throughout the world is apt to be followed by some new American escalation of
the scale of death and destruction.
We call on Prime Minister Trudeau to convey to the President of the United States Canada's firm opposition to
any renewal of the recent American massive bombing of North Vietnam. We ask members of all parties in the new
Parliament to join in a resolution expressing the overwhelming desire of Canadians that the war be ended
immediately. Finally, we call on our students, on our colleagues in other universities, and on Canadians generally, to
exert themselves as individuals in every possible democratic way, to help secure an early end to the killing in
South-East Asia.

(Signatures to the above statement have continued to accumulate, even though Parliament has unanimously
adopted a resolution deploring the U.S. bombing of North Vietnamese cities, opposing any resumption of this bombing,

The signers of this appeal have donated the surplus from their contributions
toward the expenses of this advertisement to:
Canadian Aid for Vietnam Civilians, Box 2543, Vancouver 3, B.C
