Array Factory shut, EUS kills rag
By JULIE WHEELWRIGHT
The Red Rag is dead, engineering
undergraduate society president
Lance Balcom announced Wednesday, three days after administration
president Doug Kenny placed a
padlock on the cheese factory
doors.
Applied sciences dean Martin
Wedepohl said the doors to the
EUS offices will remain closed in-
indefinitely. Following the publication of the Red Rag during
engineering week Wedephohl wrote
BALCOM. . .tosses Rag
to Kenny recommending the closure
as a punitive measure.
"The EUS asked me what they
could do to have it opened but as
far as I'm concerned, it's closed indefinitely," he said. "I'm in no
position to bargain with them."
Wedepohl said the engineers
made a bargain with him two years
ago when they signed an affidavit
promising to change the nature of
their publication and modify the
Lady Godiva ride if he would attend the EUS ball.
"We've made no demands on
them. Two years ago an agreement
was made. This lime it's quite different. They've done this voluntarily."
The dean said the engineers will
have to prove they are willing to
change their activities before their
offices will be reopened. "I don't
think it (the Red Rag) is going to
come out again," he said.
But Balcom said "it would be a
mistake for society at large to
perceive this change as being a
precedent." He said the cheese factory was shut down "because of the
offense the Red Rag caused in the
university community."

"When the full story comes out,
UBC will be an international
laughing stock."
So said professor Julius Kane, a
man found guilty of stealing funds
from a national research grant and
now embittered by an 18 month
suspension without pay.
While many in the university
community are shocked that Kane's
tenure was not completely terminated, Kane said Wednesday he
intends to appeal the decision announced by the administration this
week.
The story is long and complex,
and has yet to finish. It began in
1977 when Kane, a professor of
animal resource ecology and
zoology, was accused of using
research grants and UBC's computer for personal profit.
He was given a three month
suspension which he did not serve
until April, 1980, after an unsuccessful appeal to the Canadian
supreme court. In June, 1980, he
was fined $5,000 in county court on
two counts of theft.
In July, 1980, he was back at
work at UBC. But in September administration president Doug Kenny
suspended him again and launched
dismissal proceedings.
Kenny decided to dismiss Kane,
but the professor appealed and a
three member committee was formed to investigate the case. The committee was formed of two UBC pro
fessors, one chosen by Kenny,
another chosen by Kane, and
another selected from the University of Alberta by mutual agreement.
The committee recently reached
its long-awaited decision. It rejected
Kenny's recommendation of full
dismissal and agreed to an 18
month suspension without pay.
"It (the decision) is fine as far as
it goes," Kane said in a telephone
interview from his Bellingham
Washington home. "It's a little
disappointing I didn't get 100 per
cent (taken off dismissal)."
But Kane vowed to continue his
fight. He said he will either take the
case to court or call an academic
meeting of senate
"There's been a lot of misinformation, and I've never told my
story," he said. "So now I'm in the
process of telling my story."
He accused UBC's administration of failing to disclose important
information, and said the claims
that he used research grants and
UBC's computer for personal gain
are "absolute perjury."
"The thing I was doing was hiring students and showing them the
wide spectrum of jobs that could
come out of computer use," he
said. "I was given a half million
dollars from the Ford foundation to
do exactly the mode of work I was
doing at that time.
"The university broke an agreement we made in the '60s. It was
See page 2: CANNED
He added, however, "there was
no mention made of the Red Rag
during engineering week; it went
out very quietly." Balcom said he
and EUS president-elect Rich Day
initiated a series of steps which will
make it very difficult for the Red
Rag to appear again, but he refused
to elaborate on the details.
And Vancouver Status of
Women staff person Nadine Allen
said she is skeptical about Balcom's
promise thai the publication is
dead.
"Being old and cynical I'll wait
but hopefully this will be it," she
said. "I just don't think another of
those publications should go out
again. I thinx this year's was the
worst I've seen."
Allen said she is skeptical because
of the EUS track record and the applied science faculty's historic
refusal to take responsibility for the
publication.
"Time and time again (the EUS)
has said 'we're going to do this and
we're going to do that and it's only
a few of the guys.' I think the whole
faculty has to take responsibility for
it."
But Allen said until women's
groups are assured that the Red Rag
will never appear again, they will

"GOOD GOD what a deep hole!" exclaims onlooker in horror after watching still more students, faculty and
courses get swallowed up by one of UBC's giant retrenchment machines. Evil monsters can be seen roaming freely around campus, gobbling up unsuspecting victims and making retrenches like this one all over the place.
Onlooker later mysteriously disappeared.
Campus housing costs climb
Residents rates are the latest victim of menacing inflation rates and
soaring labor costs at UBC.
The board of governors approved
rent increases of between 15 and 20
per cent for room and board, single
room rental, and family housing
units at the university to offset in-
Hospital union takeover delayed
By KEITH BALDREY
The Hospital Employees Union has accused a rival
union of "stalling" tactics to prevent its bid to represent approximately 600 staff at the UBC health science
centre.
The HEU applied in February to the B.C. Labor
Relations Board for certification to represent the
workers who are currently represented by the Canadian Union of Public Employees local 116.
An LRB hearing on the certification bid was held
Feb. 18 and was adjourned until mid-April after
CUPE said not all parties involved in the dispute were
notified of the hearing.
"CUPE is trying to stop our bid on the basis of
technicalities," HEU spokesperson Jack Gerow said
Monday. "We don't agree with the stalling tactics of
CUPE but there is nothing we can do about it," he
said.
But CUPE provincial office spokesperson Neil
Bradbury refuted Gerow's claim. "Desperate people
grab at anything they can get," he said. "We're not
dragging our feet. The LRB will deal with the matter as
they see fit."
An LRB spokesperson said the hearing was proceeding in a normal manner and added stalling tactics
would not provide any advantage to either party in the
jurisdictional dispute.
"Stalling tactics would have no particular advantage
because the votes (of the health science centre workers)
are in the ballot box until I order them opened," said
Ben van Der Woerd, who presided at the Feb. 18 hearing.
"It's a very normal procedure. It was felt there
should have been other parties notified. I think it had
to do with the faculty association, the health sciences
association and one or two others," he said.
creased costs Tuesday.
Student boad representative Ron
Krause said the board gave careful
consideration io the decision.
"The studerits apparantly agreed
with the increase and we didn't have
the capacity to dispute the figures
presented, so .ve felt the increases
were reasonable," he said.
Despite concern from some
students the proposed housing rates
were approved by all three single
student residence associations. But
some students said university housing is the only alternative to Vancouver's difficult housing crisis.
"I have no choice but to stay,"
said Vanier resident Olav Boersma
and added thjit with rising costs,
"we've got to be realistic."
Vanier house advisor Richie
Speidel said, "It's difficult to face
reality. We're rot used to having to
suffer too mucn to go to school. It
might make people think of the
university as a privilege rather than
a right."
Another Vanier resident said
students would not leave residence
because of the increases but they
would probably need more aid from
their parents to stay.
A senior single room in Place
Vanier will be $2,971 and at Totem
Park a single room will be $3,019.
Double rooms will be $2,522 and
$2,491 at Vanier and Totem respec-
tivley. At Walter Gage, the rates for
a single room in a six person apartment for eight months will be
$1,569.
In the married students quarters
of Acadia Camp and Acadia Park
the rents will range from $82 a
month in converted army huts to
$344 a month for apartments.
The room and board rate increases at Place Vanier and Totem
Park include an 80 cent daily increase for food.
The rate hikes should cover inflation and increase in labor costs
without any deterioration of services, said food services dietician
Esther Margolis.
"We should be able to maintain
or improve the status quo, and we
certainly won't do less," she said. Page 2

UBC summer papers unfold
A media blitz is planned for UBC
this summer.
The Alma Mater Society has applied for government grants to
employ students for two separate
publications, while CITR radio has
applied for grants to employ 10 extra staff this summer to increase its
news coverage.
The publications include a once
weekly   summer   Ubyssey   and   a
newspaper catering to UBC's summer convention centre.
The Ubyssey is asking for $18,000
from the Summer Canada Student
Employment Program to hire six
staffers for 16 weeks. If the grant is
approved, it will be the first time
The Ubyssey has published during
the summer.
The convention newspaper was
initiated by AMS general manager
Charles  Redden.  The publication
will appear even if the government
refuses the grant application, Redden said. Student council has not
yet been informed of the publication, but Redden called it an administrative decision which does
not require council's support.
Three people will be hired to
work for the convention newspaper
— a clerk, an editor and an assistant  editor.

fight with every means possible to
stop it.
Administration vice president
Michael Shaw said Wednesday he
also hopes the publication will
never reappear. "I think it would be
a good thin if the Red Rag never appeared again. 1 think it's an awful
thing. It's disgusting."
Wedepohl also made a presentation to the Association of Professional Engineers of B.C.'s executive
council Wednesday. "It was a total
disapproval of the contents of the
Red Rag," he said.
And according to David Chiu,
spokesperson for the International
Committee against Racism who also
attended the meeting, the council
decided nothing about the Red Rag
during its open session and asked
Chiu and Wedepohl to leave for
their in camera discussion of the
issue.
Chiu said he was concerned the
council had denied ICAR and VSW
permission to make a presentation
because of time constraints when
they approached the council a week
ago but had allowed Wedepohl to
speak on a day's notice.
Canned Kane tells tale
Two UBC law students also filed
a formal complaint about the Red
Rag with campus RCMP Wednesday. Stuart Soloss, law 2 and Gerry
Thorne, law 1, swore out information on the Red Rag stating they
had seen the publication and were
offended by it.
Soloss said the publication is
obscene and should not be
distributed on campus, but formal
charges have not been laid.

clear I would work at UBC with the
purpose of furthering economic
gain."
Kane said he used the computer
strictly for testing purposes, and the
program was available to anyone
who wanted to use it. Kane said his
research led to great advances in
computer-made decisions, which
the rest of the world has picked up
on but B.C. has ignored.
"The real story has been depriving the people of B.C. of the
economic     benefit     of    our
programs.
He compared his use of the computer to a horticulture professor
developing a new strain of fruit.
"He's got to eat the new strain of
pears or grapefruits to see if he's on
the right track.
"It's an absolutely idiotic stance
taken at UBC that a professor can't
use his own work."
The UBC administration will not
comment on-Kane's dismissal until
the decision has been reviewed.
The suspension will cost Kane
about $75,000.

'Natural death is unlikely'
By CHRIS WONG
"I think the (chance) of anyone
in this room dying a natural death is
highly unlikely," a University of
Michigan political science professor
said Wednesday.
Our chances of survival in the
future are slim because of the
distinct possibility of another world
war, David Singer told 80 people in
Buchanan 106. "We live in a world
in which we no longer have control
of our survival," he said.
The excessive military buildups
of the United States and the Soviet
Union are an indication of impending world conflict, said Singer.
"World War Three is highly probable," he said.
Singer  criticized  politicians  for
their mediocre efforts toward finding solutions to the problems
associated with war.
"The politicians have done a
bloody poor job in helping to solve
these problems," Singer said.
"They make the same damn fool
decisions."
Today's   attitudes   toward   war
have changed little since the seventeenth century, he said.
"Research shows that beyond a
shadow of a doubt, the history of
international conflict has
dramatically and sickenly repeated
itself."
But the church is beginning to
take a tougher stance on war,
Singer said. "Who would have expected that this many priests would
be standing at their pulpits today,
criticizing their governments?"
"The only difference between
priests and politicians is priests have
a slightly higher level of credibility,
even though their performance is
not that much better," he added.
He stressed that we are "very
unlikely" to eliminate the probability of war and that the wrong
mediums have been used in an attempt to eliminate war.
"We have spent too much time
trying to find either moral, spiritual
resolutions, quick fix technological
solutions, or short run pragmatical
political   solutions,"   said   Singer.
Singer said our knowledge of the
political aspects of war consists
mainly of "trivial generalities."
"The knowledge we have of
domestic and international politics
is very limited," he said.
People can work towards changing governments' aggressive pro-
war attitudes by threatening the
political survival of their leaders,
Singer said. This is a solution
because politicians feel "the most
important thing is to get
re-elected," he said.

No campaign
-ian timbariaka photo
"OH THOSE welfare bums, pregnant women, single parents, students, socialists, political campaigners, Tories
under 30, professional politicans, trade unionists, and all COPE members give me a giant headache!" Vancouver
councilor and UBC math prof Nathan Divinski ranted at a Tory arranged speech. Divinski surprised group by saying he was once a socialist. See story to The Right.
By CRAIG BROOKS
Political campaigning is a
humiliating procedure that is
"beneath contempt," a Vancouver
city councilor and UBC professor
said Wednesday.
"I did not campaign (in the last
civic election). It's humiliating, so I
did none," Nathan Divinski told 20
people in SUB 212. "However, I
barely got elected," he added.
Divinski said he found the act of
soliciting votes alien to him. He added, he will not campaign when he
seeks re-election this November.
Divinski, currently a member of
the "right wing" civic non-partisan
association, admitted to once being
an ardent socialist.
"I was a big man in the CCF
Sask. education minister slams feds
SASKATOON (CUP) — Saskatchewan's education minister is
angry at the direction federal
policies toward post-secondary
education are taking.
Doug McArthur recently told a
Saskatoon audience the federal proposals based on the July 1981
Dodge Report are "the biggest
threat to higher education today."
The report says universities are
not providing the kind of skilled
employees in demand, so federal
policies must be changed so they
will do so.
McArthur said three proposed
federal   approaches   to   post-
secondary education are to reduce
funding, target it to specific programs, or introduce a voucher
system.
Under a voucher system students
who enrolled in high demand programs would receive vouchers paying for some or all of their education costs.
The objections to these proposals
are "self evident," according to
McArthur.
"The universities will become occupational training centres," he
said, "or be sacrificed to the
whims of the politicians."
McArthur   said   the    "ederal
government is determined to
dismantle the Established Programs
Financing program of transfers to
the provinces targeted for post-
secondary education and health
care.
"The federal government intends
to spend less, but develop a high
visibility and direct control over
spending," he said. "This is
frightening."
The federal government's claim
that the provinces have been incorrectly using EPF is'nonsense," he
said. Federal charges that provincial
funding increases for advanced
education and health care have not
Blakeney pledges more support
SASKATOON (CUP) — The
Saskatchewan government has
pledged unqualified support for
maintaining university funding
levels in the wake of impending
federal cutbacks.
Saskatchewan premier Allan
Blakeney surprised university
academics at an NDP nomination
meeting February 20 by promising
"if there are federal cutbacks, we
must be prepared to make up the
difference."
No other provincial government
has made such an unequivocal
statement on how it would respond
to planned reductions in federal
transfers to the provinces used to
fund post-secondary education.
The provincial and federal
governments are now locked in a
series of negotiations over revenue
guarantee payments and equalization   transfers.   Other   provincial
governments are playing it cagey,
refusing to reveal what they will do
if the federal governmeni goes
ahead with the plans announced in
the November 12 budget.
No one is sure what the nei effect
on provincial revenues of the complex tax changes outlined in the
budget would be. Estimates of the
net revenue loss over the next five
years have varied from $1.9 billion
to $9.2 billion. The most widely-
accepted estimate is that provincial
revenues would be reduced a
minimum of $3.5 billion.
The federal cuts are not absolute
cuts, but are relative to wlu.t they
would have been if present arrangements were continued.
Naturally, provinces oppose the
proposed cuts. They have tried to
maintain a united front in the confusing maze of negotiations since
November,   saying   federal   cuts
would greatly reduce the amount of
money available for advanced
education.
The federal government says the
provinces have not been pulling
their weight in funding advanced
education, even though it is their
jurisdiction under the British North
America Act. They say the provinces must assume a higher share
of the costs.
Last month the federal government unilaterally threatened to go
ahead with the proposed budget
changes effective March 31. The
provinces have said they want to
continue negotiating in hopes of a
breakthrough.
The federal government says it is
pessimistic about the chances for a
quick settlement. But, except for
Saskatchewan, the provinces still
refuse to reveal any contingency
plans.
kept pace with the increase in
federal transfers under EPF "are
true because that's the way it was
supposed to be," McArthur added.
"If we did increase (funding) correspondingly, it would put provincial expenditures up," he said. "No
reasonable person would advocate
this."
McArthur hopes a conference being planned by the Canadian education ministers will strengthen the
provinces in their negotiations with
the federal government by influencing public opinion.
"I shudder when I see university
officials saying federal proposals
are reasonable," said McArthur.
"We must work together to gain
public support."
McArthur said he opposes major
increases in tuition fees. "Ideally, I
want to see them stay at 11 per cent
(of university operating costs) or be
reduced."
(NDP) party (in my university
days)," the UBC Math professor
told the largely Tory group.
"It was a bad scene back then,"
he said. "Socialism seemed so simple a solution to the problems."
Divinski said by the time he had
turned 30 his political outlook
on life had changed. He said
everyone should normally be
socialist up to the age of 30, at
which point their viewpoint usually
changes.
"There is something the matter
with you; you are queer," he told
the group.
Many current politicans are involved in politics for the wrong
reason and make random decisions
for the wrong reasons, Divinski
said. "Their first goal is to get reelected."
Divinski feels politicans should
be people who have already succeeded in some aspect of life. "Only
then do you have the right to offer
yourselves for public office."
Divinski extensively criticised the
current unemployment insurance
and welfare systems.
"It's never been better than right
here right now. Kings never lived as
good as people on welfare in Vancouver."
Divinski would make able bodied
people "sweep the streets" to earn
welfare. "They have to learn to
look after themselves."
He particularly criticised pregnant single women who decide to
keep their baby, rather than put it
up for adoption. "No one asked
her to uncross her legs," he told the
mainly male applauding and cheering audience.
Women who run away from their
husbands, where the husband is the
"bread-winner" of the family,
should not get public assistance he
said. They should never have lefi
their husbands in the first place he
said.
Students take to street
When students, faculty, and staff march through downtown Vancouver March 12 they will be protesting more than severe cutbacks
for the current academic year a Canadian Federation of Students-
Pacific spokesperson said Tuesday.
"Education cutbacks are not new," said CFS-Pacific chair Sophia
Hanafi. "The 12 per cent freeze on education funding comes on the
heels of four years of underfunding."
CFS with post-secondary institutions across Canda are holding a
week of action against cutbacks. At UBC, the Alma Mater Society
and Students for an Accessible Education, will participate in an anti-
cutbacks march and demonstration at Robson square, in a week of
protest.
SAE spokesperson Stephen Leary said UBC students will be bussed to the march which will start at Beatty and Georgia streets and
proceed to Robson square. Page 4

Take it to court
The Red Rag is dead and there's a padlock on the EUS hangout, the
cheese factory.
Great. Now all sexism and racism in the engineering faculty will cease
and the administration has established a lovely precedent of decisive,
authoritariarn response to out-of-hand students whenever there's enough
public pressure.
Come on. UBC president Doug Kenny and his administration's synthetic
response to the sexism, racism and hatred expressed in the Red Rag is not
fooling anybody. Kenny made a superficial bow to public pressure and
engineering bigotry will not be seriously dampened.
In fact, engineering undergraduate society president Lance Balcom proudly proclaims the "principles" of the EUS will remain intact; the live sex
shows called smokers, the Lady Godiva ride and other offensive events will
continue to exist.
Two years ago the EUS agreed they would alter the Lady Godiva ride.
So now she wears a cape or g-string. The EUS also said they would alter
the Red Rag. So this year they came out with the most offensive, obscene
publication this campus has seen.
It is encouraging that the administration and the EUS finally
acknowledge there is real public outrage at the continual exploitation and
degradation perpetrated in EUS fun and games. But their track record
leaves us skeptical, and the "dramatic" steps Daddy Kenny has taken to
punish the kiddy EUS executive is less than convincing.
This year's Red Rag would not be allowed across Canada's border. It
violates B.C. laws against publishing race hatred. It is not just a case of
children being naughty. The writers, publishers and printers of the Red
Rag belong in court.
Letters
Roman rocks, rolls and rips AMS about dance
This letter is in reply to the Tuesday, March 2 article entitled
"Weekend Co-op rock 'n' rolls
stituted as an Alma Mater Society
club in the fall of 1980 to provide
on-campus musicians the opportunity to meet one another, form
bands, have jam sesions, thereby
allowing them to continue their interests in music as a pastime, while
attending university. In the interim
of our formation and the present,
we also put on beer gardens which
feature live performances by the
bands that form out of our club.
Since the point of this exercise is to
provide newly formed bands the
chance and experience of playing
their material in public, we charge
no admission at the door, and attempt to recover our costs for the
sound system, lighting, and security
by beer sales.
Despite the apparent innocuous
intentions of the club, our relationship with the AMS has been the
privilege of block bookings, the use
of the auditorium for practices, and
are always on the verge of being
deconstituted by the AMS for
trivial violations of their roster of
18 redundant, absurd liquor licence
regulations fabricated by the AMS
bureaucracy. It is in the interest of
the AMS to deconstitute an active
club such as ours since we are in
competition with the AMS afor the
larger rooms such as the ball room,
also the AMS certainly does
not wish the Special Occasion
Permits for its concerts to be revoked by the RCMP because of past incidents incurred during AMS club
functions. The apparent aim of the
AMS is not to serve the students interests but instead to run a large
money-making organization at the
students' expense for the sake of
polishing their individual resumes
on their commerce degrees.
Last Friday marked the sixth free
concert and beer garden put on by
Rockers Co-op since its inception.
Cliff Stewart et al of the AMS
bureacratic machine are quoted that
once again they will be their usual
helpful selves and review the status
of our club. The AMS want someone or something to blame for
the incident that occured that Friday night.
Well boys, this time the joke's on
you because it was none other than
Linda Singer, the full time fully
paid  Programs  Co-ordinator that
provided the bona fide and certified
"veritable" security force consisting of two indifferent and ineffectual students, hired at the
ludicrous rate of $7 per hour.
As musicians and performers
themselves, the club executive cannot physically handle the security
problems that occur without fail at
every liquor event be it sponsored
by our club or whomever.
Therefore we rely on the security
staff hired for each function to deal
with any mishaps effectively and
professionally. When the fight between an obnoxious patron and
bartender erupted on Friday, the
security personel in attendance did
nothing more than to run for the
proctor to summon the boys in
blue. Needless to say, such cowardice is without precedent.
If the nature of our audience does
not appeal to the delicate palate of
the AMS then turn to your security
team for the answer. The signing
officer for the particular Special
Occasions License explained the obvious admission requirements to the
security team, namely no minors
and that the event like all our events
is for the club members and their invited guests only.
After two years of existence, last
Friday is the first time we have had
a brawl at one of our concerts. The
club consists of approximately 50
students and former students of
UBC. The irresponsible allegations
of Stewart that "every time they
have a function there are
problems," and the number of
underage drinkers present at the
function  is typical of the harass
ment by the .AMS that Rockers Coop must face after each of its concerts. If the AMS is genuinely concerned with the needs of students
then it should establish an effective
security team prepared to deal with
liquor events in an effective manner.

The discussion had once again turned to politics, justice, philosophy, the good society, and
the future of the human race in general. "The problem is there are too many fucking
generals," said Keigh Baldrey in a fit of pacifistic militancy. "But they're good for the
economy," responded Craig Brooks and Brian Jones. "But if war is good for our economy,
what does that say about our economic system?" pondered Julie Wheelwright and lan

Going to Russia? Bring universal sink-stoppers
By BRUCE BENNETT
"What," inquired my room-mate, pulling
himself up in his bed and squinting against
the morning sunlight streaming through the
vast, double-glazed window of our Moscow
hotel room, "is that?"
"What?"
"That. The round thing."
prehension — someone was about to address me directly in Russian.
"What's happened?" she demanded, her
thick brows raised in genuine alarm.
"Um," I replied, stalling for time, searching out the right word. "Ah, I ... I am
at my toilet." No. not quite. "... I am
shaving."
perspectives
"Oh, that. It's a univeisal sink-stopper."
I marched knowingly with my shaving kit
into the tiny ante-room containing the sink,
noted with satisfaction that indeed (as a
seasoned traveller had forewarned me)
there was no plug in sight, carefully positioned the rubber disk I had brought from
Zellers to Moscow, and turned on the tap.
Half-way through my shave, the outer
door busrt open and in flew dezhurnays, or
key-lady, bearing a small green teapot and
three unwashed mugs. She seemed surprised and offended by my presence, or by the
soap on my face. She looked into the sink:
greyish water, suds, bits of hair. She looked
up at me. I was suddenly seized with ap-
She smiled briefly, then again peered intently into the grimy water.
"Evidently. But your water isn't
flowing."
"My water?" I took several steps back,
suddenly feeling somehow unclean. She
bent even closer, her round head almost
vanishing into the sink, as though she were
divining something in the suds.
"Isn't flowing," she concluded.
Straightening abruptly, she plunged the
teapot and mugs decisively in and out of the
water, swirled them more or less dry, and
vanished through the door in a shower of
drops.
Twelve of us, each with one or two years
of Russian, had come under the auspices of
the University of Victoria for a Russian
language seminar in the Soviet Union. Two
or three of us were studying Russian at
UBC. That same morning we flew from
Moscow to Leningrad, and from there went
by bus to Dyuny, a small resort on the
Baltic which could perhaps be described as
the Squamish of Leningrad. There we
stayed three and a half weeks, from mid-
June to mid-July, at the 'Pension of
Organized Relaxation,' along with Finnish,
East German and Dutch students of Russian and an equal number of Russians on
vacation.
For the foreigner there are innumerable
opportunities to play the part of the
amiable Martian; bemused and amusing.
Near Anichkov Bridge two sharply-dressed
guys of about eighteen stopped me, pointed
at my camera.
"Hey, photograph us!"
They took up a pose of dignified solemnity-
"So. Show them that one when you get
home. We'll be famous abroad!" said one,
pointing a finger vaguely in the direction of
elsewhere.
"So," said the second, who sported a
jaunty scar along one cheek, "you're a
Finn?"
"No, a Canadian."
"A Canadian?" He was mildly surprised.
"Look, tell us, these hockey players of
yours, do they receive money for playing?"
"They do." My confession was forthright.
"We," interjected the other, indicating
his friend's scar, "play hockey. What's
your favorite team?"
"Montreal."
"Les Canadiens," said the one.
"Guy Lafleur, Larry Robinson," affirmed the other.
"But this year . . ." I'd forgotten the
verb.
"They've been losing, losing." 1 was offered a cigarette, a Dymok, in consolation.
Anyone interested in taking the trip and
speaking intelligibly can get information
from UBC's Department of Slavonic
Studies. Last summer the cost was about
$1,700 inclusive. Universal sink-stoppers
are 89 cents at Zellers.

Lady Godiva ride vile, degrading and illegal
The Lady Godiva ride is a vile
ritual, a degrading cheap thrill, an
assault and mockery of the concept
that man and woman are created
having equal rights. Women's committees and a few other conscientious organizations have put
pressure for years on the university
administration and now the RCMP
to put a halt to the activity. But expecting campus authorities to do
anything about it is futile. The
engineering undergraduate society
has virtual carte blanche to continue its illegal activities, and so the
ride will probably go on for many
years to come.
I do not use the word "illegal"
unadvisedly. Because, in fact, the
organizers, financers, and participants in the Lady Godiva ride
are a part of a society that has
already dangerously deviated from
the purpose of its constitution. And
I'm referring here, not to the EUS,
but to the AMS. I'm amazed that
nobody has yet argued the constitutionality of the Lady Godiva ride
and many other activities of the
EUS. EUS is a part of AMS, and
AMS is a registered, non-profit
organization, constituted and
allowed to operate under the Society Act.
I know many of us, including our
executive, think we're operating
under the student council, and that
as long as our respective representatives vote in majority, everything
is cool. No, AMS is constituted
under the Society Act, and if there
is a violation of the act, provided
such is proven, this is sufficient to
have the society dissolved (or a
referendum held by its members in
favour of dissolution).
The Act permits a society to be
founded if its purpose serves the
following: "A society may be incorporated under this Act for any
lawful purpose or purposes such as
national, patriotic, religious,
philanthropic, charitable, provident, scientific, fraternal,
benevolent, artistic, educational,
social, professional, agricultural,
sporting     or     other     useful
purposes..." (Part I, see 2,i).
Furthermore, the AMS constitution (a copy of which should be
available to all members on request
—so go ask for it!) is registered and
approved by the registrar of
societies (in Victoria) and states that
its objective is to "promote, direct
and control all student activities at
UBC," (Section 2,a) AMS has so
far denied any responsibility for the
ELS's activities by defending itself
'.hat since there is no proof of financial transactions in its records for
funding EUS activities there is no
proof of involvement. Well, that is
a crock of Lady Godiva horseshit!
EUS is AMS, no matter how well
concealed their financial transactions might be. As the AMS constitution states (see 2,b), the tack of
the AMS is to "promote and coordinate the efforts and activities of
all student associations of each
faculty and school which are affiliated from time to time with
UBC."
Of course, AMS records don't
show how many cheques are issued
to the hookers and strippers who
perform in numerous EUS stag
nights and smokers, the cost of
publishing pornographic and racist
literature, the purchase of pornographic films, or the revenues
lhat are brought into ELIS coffers
by alumni contributions, the rental
of porno movies, and the operation
of a pub out of the cheese factory
(the EUS HQ). Women engineers
write in letters of support and deny
that any of the boys' notorious activities prevent them from entering
engineering as 'a vocation, but
would they like their daughters to
read the Red Rag or get paid to give
blow jobs in the orgies organized by
their fellow engineers?
Well, if nothing else, this is
another chance for an EUS President to write another boring letter
of denial.
I request The Ubyssey to grant
me total anonymity, given the
EUS's proven past record of personal harassment, whenever anyone
dares criticize them. I furthermore
deny any affiliation with any
women's, Marxist, gay or environmental association of AMS.

Red Rag to end—EUS
Fellow students, I'm afraid that
all things must come to an end. To
the chagrin of some, to the joy of
others, I'm afraid that 1 must announce that the Red Rag will not be
reappearing on campus again. It
began many years ago as satire, very
good satire at that. The most suggestive thing in the 1958 Red Rag
was a classified:
Wanted: piece of tail, contact
model airplane club.
Times change as do attitudes.
The vision of some within
engineering was not lost but the
ability was lacking. We were not
kidding   when   we   said   it   would
Israel Week offers culture and politics
The university" is frequently
criticized today as being a retirement home for bureaucrats, a
money making (or losing)establish-
ment or simply a series of cogs
which churn out reems of processed
academic merchandise supposedly
suitable for the job market. According to student radicals of days-
gone-by, the daring, fearless,
idealistic spirit of the young and
ambitious has transformed into
mere apathy and pacifism. Is
apathy an essential ingredient in the
recipe for a bachelors degree?
As is the tradition, members of
the Vancouver Branch of the North
American Jewish Students
Network on the UBC campus are
currently planning for the 1982
Israel Week.
Monday, March 8, 12 to 2p.m. Student Union Building concourse
An extensive multimedia display
featuring a slide and tape show,
literature and posters will be
assembled focussing on Jerusalem,
the City of Peace. The religious
significance of the city for Jews,
Christians and Moslems will be explored. The exhibit's purpose,
basically, is to illustrate the non-
political aspects of Jerusalem.
Tuesday, March 9, noon
Buchanan 203
As the initial stage of a cross-
Canada speaking tour, Reverend
John Grauel of New Jersey will address interested students, faculty
and guests on the topic "When a
dream comes true: The state of
Israel." Rev. Grauel was on the Ex-
oduc ship in 1947 and was a
member of the Haganah, the Israeli
Defense Force and is one of North
America's most vocal and dynamic
non-Jewish Zionists.
Wednesday, March 10, noon SUB
party room
Israeli culture will be emphasized
on this day as part of the "Lunch in
Israel" program. An Israeli dancing
performance will take place and
falafel and "hamantaschen" will
also be served. Blue and white
clothes should be worn to k;ep in
the Israeli spirit.
Thursday, March 11, noon upper
lounge, International House
Dr. Kal Holsti, the head Df the
UBC political science department
and Dr. Mattityahu Mayzel af the
Tel Aviv University history department will engage in an academic
forum on the Camp David peace
process and its chance for success.
Each man will give his opinions based on his discipline and
background.
Friday, March 12, noon Hillel
House (behind Brock Hall)
Rami Raz, director of the Israel
Aliyah Office and a panel of
students will discuss opportunities
to visit, work and study in Israel.
The focus will be on these individuals' personal experiences on
various programs there.
The Jewish Students Network
thrives off student initiative, and
this initiative will hopefully
facilitate further interest among the
UBC community. The student spirit
is very much alive, and Israel Week
is a means by which to spread it.

change and in fact it did but the
transformation was not what any of
us had hoped to see. The Rag has
never been put out by bigotted people with the intent to put down. It
started and has always been intended to shock the sensibilities of society, sensibilities that we as engineers
wanted to laugh at and hence induce to change.
Doubtless most of you are
dolefully shaking your heads. No
question about it. The intent mav
have been there but the end prod; :t
failed miserably and in the proc. ■,
of failing we offended a great many
people. Some of the people are
among those whom we in engineering hold a high degree of respect
for. For that we are sincerely sorry.
Our efforts to change the publication have failed. Better to redirect
our energies elsewhere.

UBC 'Birds splashing in nationals
By BRUCE CAMPBELL
Starting today and continuing
through Saturday the UBC swimming and diving teams will be hosting
the Canadian Interuniversity
Athletic Union national championships. There will be 220 swimmers
and divers representing 28 schools
from across the country competing
in the meet.
UBC's women's team is currently
ranked number one in Canada.
Rhonda Thomasson is expected to
lead the women's team as she is also
ranked number one in Canada in
several events. Kim Austin is
another UBC swimmer to watch, as
she has a good chance of winning
the 200m breastroke. In the
women's diving competition, Nancy Bonham, who set a Canada West
record two weeks ago in Calgary, is
expected to do very well for the
'Birds.
After the CIAU Canada West
championships in Calgary, the UBC
men are now in fifth nationally.
Team captain Mike Blondal will be
out to defend his 50m freestyle title
and is also expected to do well in the
100m butterfly. Kevin Stapleton
should make the finals in the 200m,
SMITH . . . Calgary star
400m and 1500m freestyle while
Tyler Cant is expected to do well in
the 100m butterfly. In the men's
diving competition, UBC's Alan
Hay should place in the top six in
the three metre event.
UBC will be facing tough competition from the University of
Toronto and the University of
Calgary for both the men's and
women's titles. Alberta is also ex-
(sports)
pected to give the UBC men some
stiff competition.
Several top name swimme-s will
be competing at the meet, many of
whom are on the Canadian national
swim team. This will be the final ap-
perance in CIAU competition for
Calgary's Graham Smith as he will
retire from swimming at the end of
this season.
Today, the swimming hea:s will
be held at 11 a.m. with the finals
at 7 p.m. In the diving competition,
the women's preliminaries will be
held at 1:30 p.m. and the men's
preliminaries at 4 p.m. The
women's one metre finals will be at
7 p.m.
Friday will see the swimming
heats run at 11 a.m. with finals going at 7 p.m. The women's three
metre diving preliminaries are at 2
p.m. with the men's one metre
finals at 4 p.m. The women's three
metre diving finals are at 7 p.m.
On Saturday, the final day of the
meet, the swimming heats will again
be held at 11 a.m. and the finals at 7
p.m. The men's three metre diving
preliminaries will be held at 2 p.m.
and the finals at 7 p.m.
For those of you who haven't
been following the 'Birds this year,
the swimming and diving team has
been turning strong performances
all year.
