Array Retro-pay
late for TAs
UBC teaching assistants must
wait until the end of March for
retroactive pay owed them from a
contract settlement ratified in
But some teaching assistants are
angry that it is taking the university
that long to pay the 15 per cent increase effective from September.
"We want our money by the end
of Feburary," said chemistry
graduate student Blaithin Tar-pey.
"Most teaching assistants are
assuming that it will be coming in
February since the contract has
been settled."
Doctoral candidates are owed
about $500 in back pay from the
university but Tarpey doubted they
would receive interest for the two
month waiting period.
The teaching assistants union is
considering a grievance against the
university said union secretary
Malcolm Kennard. Slow payment is
not grievable under the new contract but other legal means such as
the provincial labor code may be used, he said.
Finance department accountant
Robert Seeley said Monday the
volume of adjustments to be sorted
out means the department cannot
meet the Wednesday deadline for
the Feb. 26 pay day. (TAs are paid
Tarpey criticized the university
for being quick to deduct pay during contract negotiations but slow
at adding pay after the settlement.
"I can't see why it's going to take
two months to do standardized pay
cheques," said Tarpey. She added
the adjustments are as easy as
deducting pay because everyone fits
into one of four job classifications.
She said the university's claim
that adjustments have to be made
doesn't make sense because TAs
who don't fit the formula have
already been told they have to wait
until April for back pay and must
apply to their department to receive
TAs should apply before April to
receive back pay, Seeley said. Early
applicants may get back pay in
March, he added.
Law dean quits
over cutbacks
The worsening financial situation
at the University of Washington has
claimed another victim.
U of W law dean George Schatzki
resigned Feb. 2, citing "unrealistic"
budget cutbacks and the "deteriorating economic condition" at the
university as reasons.
"I became dean of law with the
idea of building things, not destroying them," said Schatzki. "The
reasons I became dean are now pipe
dreams. The goals are not attainable."
The university law school budget
has been cut more than nine per
cent in the past 21 months, a reduction of more than $200,000, said
He said the law school has only
$65,000 to spend over the next
two years although the school needs
at least $400,000 over the same period to maintain the present level of
education and services.
"(The budget) is cut way back
from what it used to be. It's a pretty
bleak scenario, a crazy situation,"
said Schatzki.
"We're down to nothing but salaries. There will be no such things
as guest lecturers, part-time or sessional faculty. All non-people
money is gone."
Schatzki said the bleak financial
situation is not confined only to the
law school on campus. "All of the
university schools are at what I
would call the edge of a precipice,"
he said.
Schatzki said he did not resign
for political reasons. "The resignation was not a political statement.
That wasn't the reason I did it," he
said. "Some people think it was a
statement of some kind."
He added the reaction to his decision was been generally supportive. "Within the law school everyone has been very supportive in how
they deal with me. Most people understand why I did it. The reasons
for the job just evaporated."
University president William Ger-
berding issued a statement last week
that said Schatzki's resignation was
"an unhappy day for the University
of Washington. (Schatzki) was a
casualty of prolonged budget cutbacks."
Schatzki said the university administration expressed regret and
understanding about his decision.
Council, SAE join forces
to battle tuition increases
Pledging a new era of cooperation between the two groups, student council and the students for an
accessible education joined forces
Wednesday night to help preserve quality and accessible education" at UBC.
Council voted unanimously to
form a joint committee, comprised
of three members from each group,
Council Briefs
to control the expenditure of council funds for SAE's campaign
against cutbacks and decreasing accessibility.
"It's a small price to pay to try to
get some unified action on this
front," student board of governors
representative Chris Niwinski told
SAE spokesperson Bill Tieleman
said SAE is helping coordinate
UBC's participation in a province-
wide week of action in March. "It's
important that UBC participate (in
the week of protest), as we are the
largest campus.
"The public must be made not
only aware of, but angry at what is
going on at UBC and other colleges
and universities," Tieleman said.
"It is sad that the UBC administration has not fought for education
in this province," he told council.

"BEAM US UP, Scottie, there's no intelligent life at UBC," phasor-wielding enterprisers communicated in front
of Main library Wednesday upon meeting student up to her neck in mid-term blues. "I canna do it, Jim," was

Council cracks down on sexism
SASKATOON (CUP) — Controversy over a planned mud wrestling
show has led to stricter screening
procedures to prevent sexist events
from taking place at the University
of Saskatchewan.
Guidelines on what constitutes a
sexist programming activity were
adopted by the University of
Saskatchewan student union Jan.
14 after several council representatives complained about the nature
of the Sweet Li'l Mud Pies, a touring Las Vegas mud wrestling show
slated to perform at the university.
Some USSU council representatives said mud wrestling shows,
which feature women wrestlers in
bathing suits, are sexist. A motion
was passed to instruct the programming commission to cancel the
show, but was ignored by the commission. Before anything further
could develop, the show's promoter
cancelled the booking, citing USSU
The new guidelines now have the
programming commission screening
all upcoming events for sexist content. Each proposed event will be
evaluated by asking the following
questions to determine whether or
not the central theme is sexist:
• Does it serve to turn men and
women into biological subunits (by
displaying sections of a person's
body in dissected portions)?
• Does it portray women and/or
men as unequal objects exclusively
for the purpose of sexual consump
tion or gratification?
• Is it designed to inflict harm
on women and/or men and to demean them?
• Does it tend to display men
and/or women in traditional gender
roles, so that an unequal and unbalanced physical, emotional, intellectual, psychological, economic
and/or political position is created
(for example, portraying women as
sex objects)?
Guns finish mayor
(RNR/CUP) — Mayor Felix Robinson of Whitewright, Texas, ran into
trouble recently when he tried to outfit his two-person police force with
rapid fire machineguns.
Robinson said the police needed the guns to defend the town against
"riots or nuclear attack."
The police chief ridiculed the idea, saying the only serious crime last year
was a burglary — solved within 24 hours — and the only interest the Russians might have in Whitewright is in seizing its famous recipe for spicy
That was enough to convince the town council to get rid of the mayor.
Now they're trying to get rid of the machineguns. Page 2

Slush fund
From page 1
Dickinson told council.
Dickinson said the board had a
very "philosophical" discussion of
tuition fees and student aid, but
were eventually forced into the
massive increase for budgetary reasons.
A 100 person protest against increased fees at the board meeting
"drove home the point that students are worried about cutbacks,"
Dickinson said. "The board was
impressed (with the presentation)."
Dickinson warned council that
the new student board representatives who take office in a few weeks
should, "keep a close eye on" a
$300,000 "slush fund," administered by the university president.

WE WERE driving down Mescalina Drive, Frank Gannon and I, when these three women pulled us over. I radioed
into headquarters and got out of the car. It seems these ladies had found a dog wandering about and were ready
to inflict their private sadistic brand of humor on the poor mutt. "Let's jam a carnation in its mouth," one of them
said, and it was done before we could act. "It's to help the junior varsity women's field hockey team," they
bleated as we threw them in the back of the squad car. God, it's been a rough day. I bought a carnation anyway.
Cap acts on sexual abuse
And despite the problems with
the survey, Hanafi said she hopes
students, faculty and staffs at local
post-secondary institutions will
begin dealing with the problem of
sexual harassment itself.
"It's not the survey that's the
problem; it's sexual harassment
that goes on at every campus. I feel,
'let's get moving, let's do something
about the problem.'"
A recent sexual harassment
survey by the Canadian Federation
of Students-Pacific has sparked
discussion and action on at least
one local campus.
Sophia Hanafi, CFS-Pacific women's steering commitee representative said Wednesday members of
the student society, faculty, staff
and administration at Capilano
College will be meeting next week to
discuss establishment of sexual harassment grievance procedure.
In the CFS survey, 21 per cent of
the respondents at Capilano College
said they had been sexually harassed. Hanafi said the CFS-Pacific
'committee is currently working on a
grievance procedure to take to their
next conference in August.
At a recent steering committee
meeting Hanafi said provincial
representatives discussed some of
the problems with the survey.
"Some of the problems we found
were a couple of technical things:
marital status didn't include gay or
lesbian relationships," she said.
Another problem was that the
difference forms of sexual harassment specified didn't clearly indicate which form it had taken and
who the harasser was.
Hanafi said there was also no
space available on the survey for the
respondents to explain how they felt
about incidents of sexual harassment they had encountered.
"Another problem was that the
definition on the survey is not one
of the better definitions but so far I
haven't found one which everyone
is happy with," she said.
The survey defined sexual harass-
ment as unwanted or
unreciprocated sexual advances
which may take the form of sexual
comments, looks, suggestions or
physical contact and in its extreme,
sexual propositions or sexual
Hanafi said an accurate reading
of the problem on campuses was
hindered because very few men and
women responded to the survey.
But she added a national CFS
survey will be coming out in the
next year.
Butlers end fast
Dino and Gary Butler have ended
their fast in Oakalla prison.
Their 22-day fast came to an end
Monday when prison authorities
agreed to meet the prisoners'
demands. The Butlers were given
their religious pipes and sacred
The fast began as an attempt to
obtain freedom of religion within
the prison. "They went on fast
because Oakalla would not allow
them to have the pipe in the
prison," said Stan Guenther, the
lawyer who acted as the Butlers'
counsel during the early stages of
their trial.
The B.C. human rights branch
put pressure on prison officials to
allow the Butlers freedom of
religion, said Guenther. Such
demands were also received from
the general public, he added.
The Butlers had refused food
since Jan. 18 to protest the
withholding of their sacred pipe.
The same grievance had led the two
to fire their defense counsel and sit
mute through their trial. In that instance B.C. chief justice Allan
McEachern had ruled the Butlers'
sacred pipe would not be allowed in
the courtroom.
In other developments, the
Butlers' sentencing has been
postponed until Feb. 25. Sentencing
had been scheduled for last Monday, but was delayed at the Butlers'
request. "We wanted to bring some
people in to testify, but we couldn't
do it on such short notice," explained Guenther.
The Butlers were arrested in
February 1981 following a car
chase, and charged with several
firearm!! offences.
Pit plan peters out
Loto Pit is dead.
The raffling of a trip for two to
Reno by the Pit programs committee was cancelled Tuesday by Alma
Mater Society general manager
Charles Redden.
Redden said there had been too
many questions about the legality
and appropriateness of the $750 trip
The mid-term break give away
was originally scheduled to be raffled Feb. 16 among people in the Pit
who had purchased a $5 ticket. The
Pit staff had never meant the trip
give away to be a raffle Redden
Stasierowski was one of the last to
know he had been fired by the Erin-
dale College Student Union on Feb.
Stasierowski, editor of the college
student newspaper, Medium H.was
unaware his job was being reviewed
and was barred from attending the
closed council session where the
decision was made.
Joe Raftis, an ECSU vice president and the council chair said the
decision to fire the editor could not
be left to the newspaper staff
because "they are all bosom buddies and they're stupid." If the staff
refused to accept the council move,
said Raftis, the ECSU threatened to
close down the paper.
He said Stasierowski was fired
because of his "failure to fulfill his
obligations as editor and his apparent lack of time and motivation
to make himself available on request."
The council decision outraged the
Medium II staff who claimed it
violates the student union constitution. "The ECSU constitution
states 'It is recognized and affirmed
that the Medium II be free from the
influence of student government in
respect to its management
policies,'" said Barry McCartan,
the paper's news editor.
Raftis said he did not consider
the council action unconstitutional,
but the Medium II staff refuses to
accept the decision as valid.
Stasierowski is "an excellent
editor and he's still got his job until
such time as the staff of the paper
decides otherwise," said McCartan.
In another closed meeting Feb. 4,
the ECSU council reportedly
criticized Raftis for his comments
on the newspaper staff but did not
consider closing the newspaper.
The firing followed several
disputes between the newspaper and
council this year. ECSU voted last
fall to force the staff to use word
processing equipment to produce
editions, instead of the traditional
phototypesetting. The staff dismissed the council decision as internal
interference, charging the word
processing method makes the paper
look sloppy.
McCartan said he thought a compromise had been reached in the
dispute earlier that week, and
Stasierowski's firing "shocked" the
McCartan said a revamped
Medium II constitution, which the
council has not yet approved,
would have prevented the ECSU
firing the newspaper editor.
Stasierowski said he would "wait
and see what happens" before making any decisions.
"I am too busy putting out a
paper to worry about being fired."
Martlet strives
for independance
Special from the Martlet
It's the latest style —self-determination for student newspapers.
The student newspaper at the
University of Victoria, Ihe Martlet
last week took a major step toward
joining the growing ranks of
autonomous student newspapers in
Canada when UVic's student
government supported autonomy in
"We're pleased they seem to
recognize that the political body (of
the Alma Mater Society) should not
control the media," said Martlet
editor John Lutz.
He said the AMS board of directors went in camera two hours
before reaching the decision but the
final vote was seven in favor, none
opposed and two abstentions.
Lutz said he hopes a referendum
for direct funding of the Martlet
will take place March 16.
The UBC student council has also
supported autonomy in principle
for The Ubyssey. The paper's staff
is aiming for a referendum in mid-
Autonomy for student newspapers means financial and editorial
control is taken from the hands of
student politicians. A board of
directors to which students would
elect representatives would control
The Ubyssey.
Other autonomous newspapers in
the lower mainland are the Peak at
Simon Fraser University and the
Other Press at Douglas College.
The Courier at Capilano College attained autonomy last spring.
At McGill University in Montreal, the McGill Daily has recently
attained autonomy, while the
Uniter at University of Winnipeg
and the Manitoban at the University of Manitoba are currently seeking autonomy.
Students join CFS
largest voter turnout since the 1964
student council elections, University of Saskatchewan students last
week voted overwhelmingly to join
the Canadian Federation of
More than 30 per cent of the student body voted 80 per cent in
favor of joining Canada's national
student organization.
Students also approved a $7.50
per person levy for membership fees
in the organization. Evan Thornton, students' union vice president
said direct mail information and
classroom speakers were the major
factor in the high voter turnout.
"It was primarily an issues campaign and the main point was to
make people aware," said Thorn
ton, in an interview before the referendum.
An unofficial 'no' campaign
began two days before the scheduled referendum but the only college
to vote overwhelmingly against
joining CFS was veterinary science
with 85 per cent opposed.
But according to Thornton, there
were more yes votes cast at the
University of Saskatchewan than
any other institution to date.
Sarah Kearley, editor of the
undergraduate society publication
The Red Eye, said however, that
CFS was "shoved down our
throats." Kearley said she was concerned that students didn't hear the
disadvantages as well as the advantages of joining. Page 4

Well, I say. It's certainly nice to be asked to write a masthead for this upstanding example of a responsible, free student press. Y'Know when Muriel asked me
to write this I thought she was joking. Me, write the masthead? I was honored, but felt somehow that it was above my station to accept such a responsibility.
But when Keith added his voice to the people actually encouraging me to do it, I began to feel swayed. Honestly though, it really isn't until Julie requested, in
her quiet, Julie-like way that it wouldn't be inappropriate did I feel trusted enough to undertake this venture into renown. I got a lot of support from many of the
staff, less from some who didn't comme to the printers' where this piece was written. But then Brian and Mark didn't know I had been asked to do this, so
there really wasn't opportunity for a proper screening by them to see if, in their opinion, I had the necessary qualifications. Scott and Kevin were also absent. I
feel badly about this, as it would have been a tremendous boost to my self-confidence for them to have told me that it was okay with them. It did help, though,
when Arnold told me not to worry about it, that Ubyssey mastheads were "rarely works of art." Even though I knew he was only saying it to help, it made me
feel good that he would be that concerned to have me not unduly uncomfortable. Arnold's like that. Considerate, caring and understanding. His 'one small
kindness,' as somebody once said, was appreciated and accepted with thanks. Y'Know, it's not every day you meet someone like Arnold. Good ol' Arnold. But
the story isn't over yet. No sooner had Arnold made me feel happier than a twenty-inch letter on fundamentalism that Glen came up to me and said "Uh, Dave
(that's me), uh, I really, y'know, think that, uh, . . . like, I uh, well wadda ya think if I uh, told you, uh that I really, oh yeah, uh . . . do it, uh go ahead." Well,
when I realized what he was trying to say, I almost wept. That made me determined to write this thing, if only to show all the people who had rested their trust
with me that I could indeed pull through. That I had the skill and ability, yes, the self-confidence and wherewithal! to initiate and execute one masthead, written
to fit {I hope) the incredible amount of space they (The Ubyssey staff) had alloted to me. However, at the back of my mind there still existed one small, nagging
doubt. I didn't, as yet, have the approval of EVERYONE who had contributed to this particular examle of the University of British Columbia's bastion of
freedom, that shining singularity of superior superhuman survival, that particular printing of the perpendicular press. The Ubyssey. I was about to despair when
Eric arrived and granted me his approval for the awe-inspiring task that awaited me. It no longer matters who was not present. What did I care that Hyphen had
no knowledge of what I was about to attempt? What did it matter that Basil had not told me that he indeed thought I was suitable for an attempt at creating one
of the most looked-for, well read sections of the paper? How could it possibly affect me if Haig had not written me a memo telling me I had executive pardon for
any offences I may commit while performing my assigned task? He wasn't in charge around here anymore. The only other remaining absent staffer was Craig.

What makes a fundamentalist a fundamen
Lately I have heard a lot of talk
about fundamentalists, and if I
didn't know that I was one I might
be very confused as to who they are
and what they're trying to do. They
certainly don't sound like people
I'd like to meet.
First  of  all,  they   seem  to   be
where jeans and T-shirts were the
norm and the meetings took place
in an old community hall. Fundamentalists come from a number
of denominations, and even some
of my Catholic friends will qualify
if you define it as "born again."
Fundamentalists are not "narrow
in their sense of Christian mission."
y>vi • l^d w

repulsively fanatic. No matter what
you tell them, you can be sure
they'd turn it around to talking
about religion. But they probably
wouldn't be listening to you
anyway, because they only want
you to be converted. Worse than
that, they usually work in groups,
where they can get lots of positive
reinforcement, and if they live in
B.C. they'll probably vote Social
Credit. Their conversion activities
are massive, frightening, impelling. . .
Allow me to reconstruct the image, this time a more realistic one.
Because the impressions we have of
people will limit how much we
allow them to touch and affect our
lives — in air time, in everyday activities, in one-to-one conversation.
There's also something good in not
perpetuating a fallacy.
First of all, fundamentalists are a
diverse group of people. They do
not adhere to one particular
political party; they do not wear the
same clothes and drive the same
cars. I have seen conservative churches where ladies wear dresses and
men suits, and everyone acts respectably, but I've been to one church
Lyster claims that a "simple 'conversion' understanding of mission"
causes fundamentalist groups to
"naturally graviate to the best
means possible to achieve that end:
namely television and station-
programming control." I do not
observe this. A tremendous variety
of services and activities are being
performed all the time by individuals giving of themselves
within the context of the fundamentalist church. An oft-quoted statement by Menno Simons, the
founder of my own (Mennonite
Brethren) denomination, expresses
something of the scope of our vision:
. . . True Evangelical Faith
cannot lie dormant.
It clothes the naked,
it feeds the hungry,
it comforts the sorrowful,
it shelters the destitute,
it serves those that harm it,
it binds up that which is wounded,
it has become all things to all men.
What is it, then, that makes a
fundamentalist a fundamentalist? I
think the best definition is one I
heard from a person who was not a
Christian. He wanted to know if I
was a fundamentalist. I hadn't
heard the term before, so he explained, "People who take the Bible literally, who believe everything
it says."
I had to agree with that, but I
made sure he understood that taking the Bible literally does not mean
doing so without an understanding
of context and meaning. That was
the problem that Nicodemus had
when Jesus told him he must be
born again; he said "how can a man
be born when his is old? He cannot
enter a second time into his
mother's womb and be born, can
he?" (John 3:4). This type of superficial understanding is not what we
mean by taking the Bible literally,
although that mistake is made by
some non-Christians today.
What do we mean then? We
mean that when the Bible says "you
must be born again," it doesn't say
you "may" be born again and it
doesn't say "some people" must be
born again. There's just no way of
getting around it without making
Him out to have said something He
didn't say. You can redefine being
"born again" if you want to make
the message more palatable, but if
you do that you've got to make sure
it agrees with the rest that the Bible
Some people call what I just said
"narrow-minded." After all, what
about all the other religions? And
what about some "Christian" churches that don't talk about being
"born again?" It just doesn't
sound fair that I should say our
viewpoint is the only right one. In
fact, it sounds downright narrow.
The answer to this question is one
of communication. First of all, it is
not our position to look down on
persons of other religions or of
other understandings of our own
doctrine. "Love thy neighbour"
was one of the foremost commandments of Christ. It is our job to
fulfill that, which does not include
berating any person: each person is
Yet we must agree that there are
certain things which are true, while
others are false. For example, we
now agree that the world is round.
We could not simultaneously agree
that the world is flat — the two are
mutally exclusive.
This is an extremely important
concept. It also makes some people
very angry. You see, a person who
says he or she is a Christian cannot
at the same time accept other
religions without making the
mistake of the person who says the
world is both round and flat. The
God of the Bible said there was a
choice to be made. In the Old
Testament (I Kings 18), Elijah said
to the people of Israel, "How long
will you hesitate between two opinions? If the Lord is God, follow
Him; but if Baal, follow him." It
took a while, but they were unanimous: "The Lord, He is God."
The New Testament is also unambiguous in this matter of choice.
Jesus said, "I am the way, and the
truth, and the life; no one comes to
the Father, but through Me."
(John 14:6). John also says, "And
we know that the Son of God has
come, and has given us understanding, in order that we might know
Him who is true, and we are in Him
who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ.
This is the true God and eternal
life." (I John 5:20).
This is what the fundamentalist
believes. Of course, there is much
more to Christianity than what I
could explain by way of four Bible
verses. The point is, we take it at
face value. We do not see the
necesity of watering down what
Jesus said, because we believe He
meant what He said. People who
try to do that are really missing the
This is the point where you might
want to call us narrow-minded. I
call it making a choice, and
everyone has to do that at some
point or another. I expect we will
also be accountable for our choices.
But I certainly don't see the nar-

An open letter to every MLA in
This is a collective invitation to
every Member of the Legislative Assembly of B.C. who sits as the elected representative of anyone whose
plans for post-secondary education
include a college, a provincial institute or a university or any combination of these. The number of
such people in any riding may range
from a few to many thousands but
your decisions will determine their
future. This non-political invitation
is directed to every member of the
legislature without regard for party,
titles, portfolios, critic responsibilities or backbencher status.
Faculty in the college or institute
in your region have been given
your name, your constituency address and whatever biographical information could be assembled. On
behalf of students, staff and perhaps administrators, board members and the public, faculty representatives will contact you and ask
that, sometime in February before
the spring session called, you visit
the institution that serves your riding and see and hear at first hand
what the concerns are. You will not
be given a quick tour of the facilities and tea in the boardroom.
What faculty, students and
others will want from you is time
and open discussion — an opportunity to give you their concerns.
They want to ensure that you are
fully informed. They want to give
you an opportunity to state publicly
what you are willing to do as their
It would be an impressive event if
you made the initial overtures to the
institution on the basis of this open
invitation without waiting. If you
want to take advantage of such a
alist, you asked?
rowness that many people are now
trying to attribute to "fundamentalist" Christianity. Are we
"culturally narrow?" (S. Lyster)
We have about as many cultures as
there are in the world today. Are we
"narrow in our sense os Christian
mission?" I have already dealt with
this question. Are narrow "in the
interpretation of the significance of
Christ for the world today"? I
think not, but judge for yourself.
It would be impossible for me to
say everything I would like to in
these paragraphs, but I hope I have
managed  some  form of comuni-
cation here. I hope I have shed
some light into who these strange
fundamentalists are, so that
perhaps they are not so strange
anymore. If I have also helped someone to draw nearer to the truth
that will make him free, I will be
greatly privileged.

spaced, on a 70 margin line.
forum to inform the larger community of your stance the media
will be advised.
The reasons for the invitation are
very precise. When you return to
Victoria for the next session, among
your many responsibilities you will
be asked to debate and vote on the
education estimates that will be presented by the minister of education
Brian Smith. Included in those estimates will be the funds to be allocated for the operation of those colleges and institutes that are designed to serve some of the educational
needs of people you represent.
Are you aware that Smith has repeatedly asserted that the financial
support to post-secondary institutions for 1982-83 will be cut back?
The only permissible interpretation
of his statements is that institutional budgets will be significantly less
than required to meet the educational needs in your constituency.
What will that mean to the people
you represent? What will happen to
those whose educational progress
must be interrupted or diverted to
other goals or whose needs cannot
be met by the college in their com
munity? The future of post-secondary education in this province will
be laid on the line during this next
And perhaps you didn't realize
that increasing numbers of students
will be turned away in the future because of cutbacks or the elimination
of those programs and courses that
were part of their career plan. At a
time when any investment in learning will undeniably pay better dividends than B.C.R.I.C., opportunities should not be denied.
Budget cutbacks mean program
cutbacks. Program cutbacks mean
that the door to the institution will
be closed to many students. If the
argument is presented that the cutbacks in institutional budgets must
be made up from inscreased students' fees, your rebuttal is that
the end result will be a decrease
in number of students and a reduction of revenue from that source.
But the real loss will not be in revenue but in the failure to provide
students with the right to reach their
educational goals.
Yes — education is expensive and
it always will be if we consider peo
ple as our most important resource.
(The bumper sticker philosophy
that states "If you think education
is expensive — try ignorance" has a
disconcerting ring of realism.) Few
people understand the financial
mumble — grab — and grumble
game that provincial politicians
play with Ottawa. No student
whose educational expectations are
not met will be content with an explanation that Ottawa failed to pay.
If your colleagues argue that faculty salaries are the reason that educational costs are increasing, be
prepared to inform them that the
average salary increase in colleges
and institutes for 1981 was 12.25
per cent.
That's our invitation to you — to
visit, talk and take a public stand.
Unfortunately, it has the earmarks
of an assignment and it is, in a
sense. I don't think you will be
given a letter grade immediately following your visit but, even in politics, all assignments are evaluated
— eventually.

lam not guilty, just misunderstood
I am not guilty of "incredible ignorance" nor have I ever "misinterpreted the facts" as Haracio de la
Cueva alleged in The Ubyssey (Feb.
4). He knows as well as I that my
report upon the events surrounding
the recent senate elections is factual
and not in the least underhanded. I
only hope that he will show a little
more respect for the facts the next
time that he publicizes himself in
this newspaper.
For one thing, I have never claimed that Amnesty International is a
forum for ideological debates. This
misquote is purely de la Cueva's
own invention. Either he didn't
properly read my letter, or he has
deliberately set out to misrepresent
its contents.
Tq further clarify this point, I
have never said that Amnesty International has no place on this campus. If students are interested in this
sort of thing and are able to
organize themselves into a viable
club, then more power to them.
I have absolutely nothing against
clubs or any other legitimate interest groups which seek to inform
the     student     body     about
nonacademic activities. However
the members (or sympathizers) of
any such group must never forget
that their obligations lay first and
foremost with this university, upon
their election to the senate or the
board of governors.
Returning to the subject of the
elections, my letter (Feb.2) did not
suggest that de la Cueva was
responsible for the irregularites that
occurred at the all-candidates
meeting (Jan. 14). Although he was
one of the prime beneficiaries of
this unfortunate event, the blame
rests squarely with the Alma Mater
Society organizers.
However this doesn't alter the
fact that minutes before this forum
William Milosevic was told in the
clearest of terms that he could not
speak. Yet de la Cueva was permitted to do so. If de la Cueva doesn't
like my interpretation of this then I
am willing to allow the readers of
this newspaper to draw their own
conclusions. The facts speak for
Haracio made a valid point when
he said that the science senate vote
of 213 was a poor showing. But it is
a big improvement over last year;
something which can largely be attributed to the rebirth of an active
science undergraduate society. Instead of supporting the new science
constitution, which will consolidate
this year's gains, de la Cueva participated in a pointless and bizarre
attack upon it (Ubyssey Feb. 4).
In this article, Dave Frank and
the science council were attacked
for allegedly over-centralizing
power in the SUS. Nothing can be
further from the truth. In this new
constitution the departmental clubs
have more input than ever before.
With a minimum guaranteed supply
of SUS levy money, they now have
the means with which to act largely
autonomously from the SUS umbrella.
And besides this, how can anyone
seriously worry about over-
centralization in a faculty that contains fewer than 3,600 students?
After all this is an undergraduate
society and not an empire of
100,000,000 people.

Sexism stimulates campus spirit
The Lady Godiva ride has come
and gone and all that is left now are
the attempts to halt this blatantly
sexist event. Well, maybe it's not
the gears who are so screwed up but
rather the organizations trying to
stop it.
First, this ride has cerainly surpassed the bounds of pure sexism.
It is rather difficult to believe that
UBC students (male and female,
one might add) are so hard up that
they will wait around for an hour
just to catch a glimpse of a naked
female body. This ride has turned
into an occasion. It is one of the few
yearly events that can get this
pathetic university to go out and actually do something as a unit.
Of course, the response froim our
noble student council, whose annual campaign promise is to bring
Hate note not appreciated
I would like to say that the individual who left an anonymous
note at my carrell in the law library,
concerning my comments about the
Lady Godiva ride should have the
courage of their convictions.
I have made my opinions known
publicly and I am quite willing to
discuss and defend them in public.
I find it most objectionable that
those who support the Godiva ride
resort to leaving anonymous hate
messages directed at those who
disagree with them, rather than
publicly defending their opinions.
Whoever left the note clearly
knows who I am. I'd appreciate
having the opportunity of knowing
who they are. I'll be under the

12:30 p.m.

called the graduation class council
hold a general meeting and present
the year's planned ceremonies and
grad class gift applications to the
graduating students of that year.
In the past, the only problem
with these meetings has been the attendance. Although people in their
final year have a lot of commitments which make it difficult to
attend meetings, the only input
students have into how their
graduation should be is through the
graduation council and the best
time to do this is at the general
This year, the general meeting is
Thursday, Feb. 11, 1982 at 12:30
p.m. At that time the grad
ceremonies for this year will be
discussed and applications for the
grad class gifts will be presented.
Any student who is graduating
from either an undergraduate or
masters program will be welcome.
This letter is written to encourage
all graduating students to attend the
general meeting and make grad

Your degree is worth more than 'just a job'. Graduates who
can add "CA" to their degree hold one of the most sought-after
prizes in the job market. Count the employers looking for
Chartered Accountants in the career section of the newspaper.
It's going to be a job seeker's market for a long time.
If you are in your final year at university, look into the

Whatever your undergraduate degree, you and the CA profession may have something to offer one another. To find out more,

The women's worst year was
1980-81, but are taking another
shot at it this year.
There isn't much else you can say
about these teams except that Cathy
Bultitude leads the women and Pat
West, Lloyd Scrubb and Bob Forsyth lead the men.
The only other basketball note is
the status of the men's coach Peter
Mullins. Mullins will be taking a
sabbatical next year and there has
been a rumor that when he returns
he will no longer be coaching.
But Mullins said in an interview
Tuesday that after his year off he
would be returning to coach. He
was very positive about this. He
said the downtown press was blowing out of proportion the fact that
he was taking a year off.

The varsity teams will be travelling to Calgary where they will compete in the fourth Canada West
tournament. Both teams had slow
starts in the first couple of tournaments and are now in the position
where it is impossible to finish first.
About the only thing the standings do not tell you is that Calgary is
an ugly town.

Moral Dogma announced today in
this tiny island kingdom that her
reign would continue unabated for
another few years.
The tiny puce blorgs were not
happy with the announcement but
it's not easy to fight the
bureaucracy when you're puce.
Gnarled Sandface and Uncooth
Baldie are rumored to be plotting
against the despotic reign already.
However, younger, more fiercely
dogmatic blorgs, Haig Blooks,
Bland Jams and Jewel Feelalright
have strategically placed beer traps
throughout the island's watering
holes, hoping to catch the disloyal

There's no end to what he wants
to learn. Yet Danny's no hermit.
He really enjoys a good time.
That's the problem. It's
not that he sets out to drink too
much, but once Danny starts
he often forgets he has a limit,
and then it's too late.
Danny would be wise to
see a doctor, except he says it's
just a phase he's going through.
His work hasn't suffered yet.
But if Danny doesn't change,
it soon will.
And, no, Danny won't
make it.

He really enjoys a good time.
One of the things Danny's
learned at university is how to
keep those good times good.
When he drinks, whether it's
beer, wine or spirits, he knows
his limit and he respects it.
Another year or so, and
Danny will be working in a
field that's fascinated him all
his life. He wouldn't risk spoiling the opportunity for
Yes, Danny is going to
make it.
