 Grad centre' mismanaged'
The graduate student centre appears mismanaged and should be
specially audited, according to an
independent management consultant's report.
The report says, "It is clear that
management information is weak,
controls over cash and inventory
are weak and that the whole accounting procedure requires
John Davies, GSC board of
directors chair, said the report
shows that grad students have
reason to approve a new constitution and structure at Wednesday's
annual general meeting. "The
graduate student association pro
posal looks like a good solution,"
he said.
"Not only are procedures (for
operating the centre) not in place,
but the university administration
seems to be resisting any change,"
said Davies.
"The GSA is not just rewriting a
consitution," he said, in answer to
charges from some grad students
that amendments to the centre's
structure are unnecessary.
"If the finance department is not
going to do it, just from a business
view we have to take control to
watch out for our own members."
Davies said he doubted the
university had the time or inclination to sort out the management
problems at the centre.
Five of the 10 problems listed in
the consultant's report are:
a There appear to be no written
procedures for handling cash, requisition of liquor from stock, or
recording and usage of food inventory.
a There appear to be liberal
policies on free meals and liquor for
a Liquor and beer are stored in
four separate locations in the
building making control difficult.
a Managerial salaries are well in
excess of the current industry standards for food and beverage
a There are indications that
managerial salaries were set without
approval of the 1982 budget.
But administration vice president
Michael Shaw said the centre is well
managed. "It is not clear 1:0 me that
it does not operate efficiently.
"I've seen the report and sent it
lo the present board of the centre."
Before the report, Shaw said the
university would be responsible for
the functioning of the centre according to Davies.
The budget and financial responsibility is with the administration
until there are problems, Davies
The university paid salary increases to the managers of 40 to 75
per cent ahead of the industry, he
said. The centre's directors approved the increases but Davies would
not    sign   the    letter   informing
management of the increases.
Davies said he refused to sign
because the budget had yet to be approved by the annual general
meeting as required by the centre's
The problem is the budget comes
from finance and not even the
directors have control, Davies said.
He added that in 10 years $40,000
profit had been made at the centre
and grad students for the same
period had paid $840,000 in fees.
Davies said the operational
changes proposed one year ago
were minor. But even simple
changes would take weeks for
management to implement.
"I don't feel we've made any
gains this year," Davies said.

The computer science; department plans to limit enrolment

"We felt it was better to produce
a certain number of well qualified
people than reduce the standards,"
James Varah, a senior professor in
the department, said Monday. "We

Varah said limited eniolment is
needed because classes are overcrowded and there is a shortage of
faculty and funds.
"We just can't manage the
courses properly," he said.
Varah denied reports in the commercial media that registration will
be cut 25 per cent. "It's hard to put
a percentage figure on it. But we are
going to allow fewer students into
each year and into each course."
Varah said first year students will
probably need 60 to 65 per cent
averages to enter second year.
"What's happening now is all
the students are scrambling around
to get higher grades. It's not an entirely comfortable situation."
There are currently about 2,200
students in computer science and 12
faculty members. Varah said there
are 150 students in one advanced
third year class.
"They just don't get the level of
attention needed for that sort of
But Varah said UBC's hiring
freeze, in effect since September
due to budget cutbacks, has not
hurt the department as much as
other faculties. "We have been able
to hire more for next year. The administration has been pretty good
about that."

Ubyssey loses vote

OBLIVIOUS TO THE hatchet job the commercial press would do on the event, demonstrators march along
Georgia Saturday as part of a week of solidarity with the people of El Salvador and opposition to the Reagan administration's policy of intervention. The rally of 1,500 was 10 times as large as last fall's solidarity rally. Shades

Salvador rally prompts 1,500 to kit streets
With their chants and shouts echoing through the walled stre;ts of
downtown Vancouver, 1,500 people demonstrated Saturday to protest
Canadian and American foreign policy toward El Salvador.
Chanting "No Guns, No War! U.S. Out of El Salvador," and
"Reagan, Haig, what do you say? How many arms have you sent today?" the demonstrators marched from Victory Square up Georgia
Street to Robson Square. The procession was speckled with many colorful signs and banners, including "Take Off Eh! Reagan" and
"MacGuigan Sleeps with Haig."
It was one of the largest and most vocal rallies to take place in Vancouver in the past year.
The three block-long line of marchers crammed into the square in
front of the Old court house to hear speakers condemn Sunday's elections as a farce, criticize the Trudeau and Reagan governments for their
support of the junta, and call for support for the people of El
Salvador and their resistance organization, the Democratic Revolutionary Front (FDR).
With group and solidarity banners supplying a colorful background,
a succession of speakers met loud cheers and applause.
Leif Hanson, B.C. Federation of Labor vice president, called for an
international political settlement in El Salvador without militaiy intervention. "In El Salvador there is a junta that claims to be running a
democratic election. It seems the junta has forgotten about the 33,000
people who have been murdered," he said. "What democracy is there
for the dead?"
"It matters little who wins the election, because those who ar: not
participating will continue to fight for their rights," said Hanson. 'The
most likely result of the election will be a coalition of the far right-wing.
Unless the army likes the outcome of the election, it will be ign >red.

Another Chile is possible

Hanson told the rally that Canadians have a responsibility to speak
out on issues such as Central
America."Unless the U.S.
withdraws its involvement in El
Salvador, we will have another
Chile," he said.
Wes Maultsaid, an Anglican
minister who recently returned
from a tour of the refugee camps in
Honduras, said the views commonly held about El Salvador are a
misinterpretation of that country's
liberation struggle. "The last time
the people of San Salvador had a
rally such as this they were bombed,
strafed, and killed," Maultsaid told
the crowd.
Maultsaid criticized the Canadian
government for following the
American line on El Salvador.
"The Canadian government must
clearly separate itself from the
American administration," he said.
"Canada has refused to recognize
the need for a negotiated settlement. We demand to know why."
At one point during the rally a
bus driver leaned on his horn and
raised his fist in salute as he drove
through the crowd, instigating wild
cheers and applause from the rally-

critic for the federal NDP, had

Layoffs, reduced hours no joke
April 1 won't be much of a joke
to 71 physical plant service workers
— 46 will lose their jobs and 26 take
a cut in work hours.
The matter is in a grievance procedure, but no end is in sight for negotiations between the Canadian
Union of Public Employees (local
116) and UBC's administration.
Custodial superintendent Ed Trewin said Monday the layoff of 46
workers will stand, but the cut in
work hours is being discussed.
"We're still going ahead with it,
but we may have to retract (depending on the outcome of the grievance
procedure)," Trewin said.
The hour reductions hit primarily
women, who come from a lower-
paid job category. Trewin said the
workers all started with five hours a
shift and worked their way up to 7.5
hour shifts.
"There's nothing etched in stone
about it, but the union thinks there
is," said Trewin. "That's where we
have our disagreements."
Trewin earlier predicted the job
cuts may cause tension between
UBC and the union. CUPE local
116 president Ken Andrews agreed
Monday night.
"The union is taking a strong
stance," he said. "We'll continue
to fight right down to the end."
McGeer says
cut SFU Asians
Universities minister Pat McGeer called on Simon Fraser University administrators March 24 to cut the number of Asian students enrolling at the
McGeer suggested that the Universities Council of B.C. may stop
recognizing visa students when calculating the provincial government's annual operating grant to universities.
UBC chair Bill Bibson said he will bring up McGeer's proposal to limit
foreign enrolment at the council's next meeting, but added he felt each
university should deal with foreign students in its own way. "But no one
would worry about foreign students attending as long as they paid their full
way," he said.
SFU president George Pedersen said he is considering a suggestion to
establish quotas on visa students according to country of origir. More
than 50 per cent of SFU's 1,100 visa students come from Hong Kong and
Malaysia. Visa students account for 10.9 per cent of SFU's underg-aduate
McGeer likened the increase in SFU's foreign enrolment to the swelling
private schools in B.C. which cater to students from Southeast Asia who
plan to attend university in North America.
B.C. should help train potential leaders of foreign countries, he said, but
should beware of students seeking a cheap education and institutions attempting to increase their "body counts."
In Ontario, visa students learned their tuition fees will nearly double in
Ontario universities minister Bette Stephenson recently announced that
visa students will pay an increasing percentage of education costs. Some
will pay more than $4,000 in tuition fees.
"It appears it would be fairer to all if foreign students pay a greater share
of the cost of education," she said. "Foreign students are not part of the
tax base which pays for the greater proportion of education. They should
pay more."
On average, tuition fees for first year visa students will increase to $3,330
from the current average of $1,612 at Ontario universities.
Moonies hit campus
An ultra-conservative newspaper,
written to give students "a break
from leftist and Marxist propaganda," is currently being distributed on campus.
And according to Josh Freed's
book on the Unification Church,
Moonwebs, the Toronto based Our
Canada is funded by the Reverend
Sun Myung Moon's organization.
In an interview two years ago
when the paper was also being
dumped without permission at
UBC, publisher Alan Wilding said
his paper is just trying to tell "the
other side of the story."
He said, "We think Vancouver
should have some too, it's a beautiful city. We're trying to give students a break from leftists and
Marxist policy."
The newspaper includes articles
that describe former Toronto
mayor John Sewell as "an urban
guerrilla" and "the button down
rebel," report on the Soviet Union
dumping Lada automobiles into depressed sectors of the Canadian
economy and report on the radical
reforms U.S. president Ronald Reagan's policies are having in South
The newspaper also contains a review of Jack Lemmon's latest film
Missing that documents the actual
disappearance and death of Charles
Horman in the 1973 Chilean coup.
The reviewer denies that the Am
erican government had any involvement in the Central Intelligence
Agency engineered coup. "Missing
... is a very powerful and disturbing piece of anti-U.S. propaganda," writes Mark Harris.
Our Canada is available at 43 locations in Toronto. In his 1979 interview Wilding said his publication
was also available at the universities
of Toronto, Waterloo, Ottawa,
Winnipeg and campuses in Montreal.
An advertisement for publications available through Our Canada
include Confessions by Maclean's
columnist Barbara Amid and
"Support Slavery, Buy Lada,"
bumper stickers.
Wes Clark, UBC's labor relations
assistant director, said he was not
sure when the grievance procedure
would be resolved. He would not
comment on the current state of negotiations.
Budget cutbacks to physical plant
caused the layoffs, which sparked
charges of sexual discrimination
when they were first announced. All
cuts were taken from the service
worker I category, which has 98 per
cent women workers.
The predominantly male service
worker II category, which is described as heavier work, was not affected.
Physical plant said the layoffs
and hour reductions were based entirely on job classification and not
gender. Trewin said service worker
twos will pick up on the work of
service worker ones, but admitted
the campus will be noticeably dirtier
next year.
Trewin said two of the laid-off
women will likely be rehired April 5
because a service worker II has resigned.
"If more (twos) should resign or
retire, we'll bring in a couple more
of (ones)," Trewin said.
"YOU BET," former Ubyssey staffer Pat Carney told Progressive Conservative club members Monday, "reduced hours are no joke." Federal MP Carney told young PCers that life ain't easy for politicians. Carney really did
talk to PCs, but reporter fell asleep, so no story.
Students find bus solutions
Students will "thumb it," walk,
or join car pools to avoid the bus
fare increases that will take effect in
With fares rising an average of 25
per cent April 12, and monthly bus
passes jumping to $30 from $22 in
May, many students will resort to
other transportation.
Paige MacDonald, physical education 2, will soon be getting more
exercise because of the fare increases. "I'm going to ride my bike
from North Vancouver. I'm just
not going to bother using the bus
service any more."
"Today I'm going to walk because I can't afford to take the
bus," said John Bertram, a graduate student. But Bertram, who lives
on Blenheim, doesn't mind walking
a long distance. "It's kind of a recreation, it takes your mind off the
"I think it's disgusting," said an
arts student. She said she was concerned that fares are going up, but
bus service remains pool-. "It's kind
of like the post office. They raised
their prices and did the quality go
up? No."
She added she will have to continue taking the bus unless she can
An education student said the
Greater Vancouver Regional District, which runs the bus system, is
not holding their share of the load.
"Students shouldn't have to pay
(the increase). Why dor 't they kick
back themselves?"
"It's still a hell of a lot cheaper
than driving," said Grant Mill, applied science 1. "If the government
is not going to subsidize (the
GVRD) to prevent them from running a loss, then they're going to
have to get their money from fare
The principles behind the transit
system are all wrong, said Margo
Young, arts 2. She criticized the system because it is based on a profit
motive. "It should be made affordable; it's an essential service."
But Mike Ranspot, law 1, said
the fare increases are justified. "I
think rather than burdening the taxpayers, the users should pay for the
costs of the system."
"It's the pits," said an education
3 student.
Money sunk into UBC cliffs
The Wreck Beach facelift is continuing.
Work began March 18 on the second phase of the erosion control
project at the popular beach below
the endowment lands cliffs.
Say it with (dead) flowers
TORONTO (CUP) — When your relationship with your loved
one has wilted, say it with flowers — dead ones.
A Toronto researcher has a budding new service helping miffed
lovers stem their relation ships. Inspired by Washington's Dump-a-
Date, Barbara Klo offers her clients a box of dead flowers and a note
of their choice.
Klo said when she started Ditch-a-Date there were the inevitable
creeps and loonies but a.so an encouraging number of people who
wanted to say "enough is enough."
Many clients are women who had been pestered by men they
weren't interested in. Many were business associates or relatives, she
said. Messages often just implored the man to stop phoning, Klo added.
"Roses are dead, our relationship too. This is simply to say, I
won't see you," read on: goodbye ditty. The cost of weeding out a
bothersome beau: only $15.
A new 750 foot berm, or wall of
earth, is being built south from
tower two, along the bottom of the
The berm is designed to protect
the cliffs from sea erosion, and is
actually a continuation of one built
last year, according to UBC information officer Al Hunter.
"The berm is there so the high
tide doesn't smash against the cliff
and take sand away," Hunter said
Monday. "The berm slopes down
toward the water. It's about 30 feet
wide at the base of the cliff, and it's
being built up to four feet high."
Vegetation is also being planted
on the cliffs to prevent further erosion. "The bloody cliffs are just
sand. Growing material will help'
keep erosion to the :op (of the
cliffs)," said Hunter.
Stuart Lefeaux, UBC's erosion
control manager, said Monday that
planes will dump 12 :ons of fertilizer and 1,000 pounds of seed on
the cliffs today.
"We'll be flying the stuff in if the
winds are under eight miles per
hour," Lefeaux told 20 people at a
project meeting in the Graduate
Student centre.
"We're trying to discourage people from climbing the cliffs because
they contribute to erosion," he
said, and added blackberry bushes
have also been planted.
Federal fisheries regulations require that the berm's construction
and all seeding must be finished
before April 30.
UBC will no longer fund Wreck
Beach erosion control projects,
Hunter said. "This last phase
marks the end of the university's involvement in these projects. They
spent $600,000 this year. It (Wreck
Beach) is actually a city park."
Hunter said the university's main
concern was protecting its buildings
on the cliffs, such as the Museum of
Anthropology and Cecil Green
mansion. Page 4

Take charge
The graduate student association is doing what they assumed for years
to be impossible.
They are taking control of their own building which they have been paying for since the centre's construction.
What is disturbing about the current take-over plan is that it was not
recognized earlier. For too many years the graduate student centre has
operated as a caterer for weddings and private parties.
Under direct and responsible control of a new board of directors,
without administration participation, maybe groups like the grad students
in planning, botany, and resource management will start using the centre
again. These groups will get service comparable to other users at a cost
that reflects the $840,000 already paid in the last ten years by grads.
Under new management, maybe graduate students will also get a ture
picture of where their fees have gone over those years.
The first task of the new board of directors should be to quickly call for a
special audit of the centre by the university's auditor, the provincial auditor
Administration vice president Michael Shaw said the grad centre operation is comparable to the faculty club, and that it is an university owned
facility. Maybe the similarities should be explored even further to see if the
faculty club pays salaries that are already 10 per cent above industry standards and soon to be 40 to 70 per cent above if grad students don't take
control of the centre.
The small group of grad students who oppose the reorganization of the
centre should stop their protest. The evidence is more than ample that the
administration doesn't deal with the concerns and interests of grad
students at the centre. If they did, the problems plaguing the centre
would not have happened in the first place.
Principles make autonomy unacceptable
The Ubyssey autonomy referendum is a deceptive campaign that
could result in the demise of responsible free press on this campus.
On the surface, the plan might seem
laudable, but if one reads carefully
the proposed constitution, many
disturbing questions arise.
The constitution states that the
major role of this so-called "student press" is to be an "agent of
social change." It will "emphasize
students' rights and responsibilities" and "support groups serving
as agents of social change." This
principle contravenes all traditional
ethics of good journalism and
makes a mockery of honest reporting. The Ubyssey's proposed code
of ethics reads, "student journalists
shall strive to be fair and accurate in
their reporting." How can The
Ubyssey equally present both sides
of an issue when it openly supports
selective social action groups? Who
decides whether the paper supports
the Trotskyist club or the Social
Credit club? Who decides for students what their rights and responsibilities are?
The Ubyssey might answer that
the paper will be under student con
trol. The students of UBC, as long
as they pay their obligatory membership fees, would contribute to
these decisions by electing two of
their fellows to the board of directors. However, this raises another
question: If the 23,000 students
who are not members of The Ubyssey staff have control over their
own "free press," why do they have
a minority of votes on the board of

tution. However, a number of
points about this constitution are
problematic. Moreover, the GSA
claims made about the proposed
constitution for this society are
largely erroneous.
1. Change of purpose (section 2b)
It is proposed that this new society represent graduate students on
other bodies which deliberate on the
affairs of graduate students.
This is presently the responsibility
of the GSA. Any change of representation must be approved by referendum of the GSA and by those
other bodies (ex., AMS, executive
faculty of graduate studies, board
of directors of the graduate student
2. Change in membership
Bylaw 2 proposes that only students registered in the faculty of
graduate studies be ordinary members of the society. Only ordinary
members have the right to vote
(bylaw 2.10a) and have the right to
serve as executive officers (bylaw
6.3a). Other members may serve as
councillors only as special officers
(bylaw 6.2), undefined except in the
policy manual.
This now excludes all students in
the professional faculties and postdoctoral fellows who are presently
eligible for ordinary membership
with full voting privileges and representation in the presently constituted Thea Koerner House Graduate
Student Centre.
3. Regulations re: departmental
representatives and organization
These regulations (bylaws 5.3 and
8) are prohibitive.
4. Policy manual
This is referred to throughout the
bylaws, particularly in bylaws 6.3
and 11. This policy manual is not as
yet available although we are being
expected to approve its contents
which are critical to the functioning
of the new society.
5. Staff (bylaw 12)
Bylaw 12 would make it impossible to hire responsible and qualified staff.
The  new constitution  does  not
address the concerns raised by the
GSA   in   The   Ubyssey,   page   7,
March 16, 1982.
1. Student control and privileges
The new constitution does nothing to change the control of the
graduate centre by the average
graduate student at UBC. The present board of directors consists of
five students, three faculty/staff selected and appointed by graduate
students through GSA, and three
faculty/staff appointed by the
president of UBC. Moreover, there
is a house committee, comprised of
students and chaired by a student,
to oversee the daily operations of
the graduate centre, including
booking and other privileges. This
is comparable to the faculty club
and other similar organizations.

the staff?" What if a Ubyssey staffer did not want to support a particular social action group which
the rest of the staff wanted to support? The constitution makes it
clear that a person could face expulsion from the staff if he or she
"contravened the constitutional
guidelines and principles" of the
paper. A simple majority of staff
could expel a person, and the only
appeal would be to the board of directors composed of two-thirds
Ubyssey staffers and employees.
Furthermore, The Ubyssey wants
financial autonomy by milking
more funds from students at a time
of rising tuition fees and by making
certain that the "membership dues
in the society shall not be refundable under any circumstances." It
would seem that a student could not
cancel a subscription to a paper
with which hr or she does not agree.
The problems raised by these
questions are frightening in their
implications. The student press
should be independent of AMS
politics, but this autonomy proposal would serve only the interests
and ambitions of The Ubyssey
staff. It is a deceptive and dangerous referendum which deserves a resounding "NO" on all three
counts. Remember what The Ubyssey says: "These principles form an
integral part of why the society exists, so they are unalterable once accepted by the students."

A UCE supports Rape Relief
The 1500 members of the Association of University and College
Employees (AUCE) Local 1, 93 per cent of whom are women, wish to express their support for Rape Relief centres in B.C. and the women who
organize and run these centres. We view the cut in funding to Rape Relief
centres as part of an overall attack by the Social Credit government on
women and women's rights — equal pay for work of equal value, adequate
daycare, and rape crisis centres.
AUCE Local 1 is a feminist union and as such, has always fought for an
equal place in society to that of men. We, as women, wish to enjoy the
freedom and democracy that this society espouses. It is fundamental to this
freedom that we live without terror of physical attack and/or rape. A
potential loss of the irreplaceable service provided by Rape Relief is intolerable.
We therefore urge you to reconsider this drastic decision and insist that
you reinstate funding for Rape Relief centres in this province.

Computer science costs real money and hassles
This past academic year has seen
the ability of a university student,
of average means, to support himself rapidly erode. Not only are we
faced with the rising cost of tuition
in the face of extremely dim job
prospects    for   the   summer   but
higher costs are also being passed
on to us, at least some of us, in
more backhanded ways.
This leads to the essence of my
complaint, namely, the misdirection of the computer science pay ID
system. For the edification of those
SUB nuke-free day
to prevent holocaust
On Wednesday, March 31 the
UBC students for peace and mutual
disarmament will be sponsoring
Canada as a nuclear weapon free
zone (NWFZ) day at UBC. We will
be displaying an impressive series of
posters in the SUB foyer all day;
and will be asking students to fill
out ballots on the NWFZ proposal.
Naturally, students will probably
want to know what the NWFZ proposal is before they support it.
The concept of a nuclear weapon
free zone emerged from the United
Nations as a realistic strategy that
nations could employ to do their
part in ending the arms race. Middle powers such as Canada can do
relatively little to directly facilitate
specific agreements for arms control and reduction, but they can do
a great deal to influence the psychological and political environment in
which agreement is sought. Because
of our geographical location, our
international reputation (recently
tarnished by our decision to allow
cruise missile testing on our soil),
and vast resources, Canada can
play a vital role in reducing global
tensions. We have a responsibility
to place whatever political and technological restraints possible on the
out-of-control nuclear policies of
the super powers and to provide political and technological support for
limitation efforts.
One such strategy is the gradual
expansion of the globe's nuclear
weapon-free territory. In 1978, the
United Nations first special session
on disarmament called for the establishment of NWFZs as a form of
"confidence building measure"
that would help to create an international climate in which more
comprehensive arms limitations
could be undertaken. To gradually
reduce the portion of the earth's
territory over which nuclear weapons hold sway is to place direct
constraints upon the nuclear powers
For Canada to become a NWFZ
would require the following measures:
(1) No nuclear weapons in Canada.
(2) No nuclear weapons transported through Canadian territory.
(3) No production of components for nuclear weapons.
(4) No support systems for nuclear weapons.
Canadian declaration of its intention to become NWFZ and to initiate the necessary steps toward implementation of such a policy
would advance the internationally
recognized positive stance in Canadian foreign policy (at least it was
until Mark MacGuigan came onto
the scene) and would go some way
toward liberating a significant portion of the globe from nuclear domination — paving the way for similar development in other regions.
Canadians must realize that the
idea that nuclear weapons bring security is a myth. The idea that nuclear weapons can be used to defend
Canada is reminiscent of the American officer who testified that he had
to destroy the Vietnamese village in
order to save it. Lord Mountbatten,
former admiral of the British fleet,
stated shortly before his assassination that". . .the nuclear arms race
has no military purpose. Wars cannot be fought with nuclear weapons. Their existence only adds to
our perils because of the illusions
they have generated."
Nuclear weapons on Canadian
soil jeopardize rather than enhance
our national security. The United
Nations and the non-proliferation
treaty both call for all nuclea' weapon nations to refrain from threatening with the use of nuclear weapons or targeting any nation or region which has declared it,elf a
NWFZ. The Soviet Union has repeatedly stated that it would abide
by this provision.
The true threat to Canada's security is the threat of a global nuclear war. Therefore, to be realistic,
our 'defence' policy should b>: aimed at reducing this risk. Declaring
Canada to be a NWFZ is an essential first step for our country to play
a more active role in achieving
world peace.
not familiar with the management
of the computing facilities on campus, a computer ID is what gives
you access to the computer. Computer dollars (CCS) are theoretically
allocaied on the basis of need for a
given course and assignment. Often
the amount of CC dollars one obtains, especially in third and fourth
year computer science, are insufficient to complete a given assignment.
Naturally once your money is
spent further access to the computer is forfeited. In order not to
forgo a potentially large portion of
the year's grade, a student was
formerly left with basically three
alternatives. The first was to go
beggir.g, cap in hand, to your prof
who, in his infinite wisdom, would
decide if you were worthy of a couple o:' ex'.ra CC dollars. If this
humbling experience was not to
your liking you could try to
befriend someone whose computing
funds were more ample and who
might possibly be persuaded to give
you some. If both these alternatives
failed you were stuck with the third,
aborting the assignment in hope of
sufficient funds for the next one.
Now to spare their students the
agony of these demeaning alternatives, the computer science
department created a fourth alternative, computer pay IDs. Now
when you run out of computing
funds you can go to the UBC
Bookstore and for a meagre $5 purchase a gold computer card worth
an incredible 20 CC dollars. Thus
low   and   behold   everyone's   pro-
All over the world, people from
all walks of life are trying to do
something about it. Today's peace
movement is made up of doctors,
scientists, engineers, lawyers,
housewives, educators, students,
unions, church groups and even
military experts. The common
theme being expressed on every
continent of our planet is to "think
globally, act locally."
The Canada as a NWFZ proposal
is an opportunity for Canadians to
achieve something important at a
local level which will have positive
global implications. In the fiist four
months of the campaign, over 100
prominent Canadians have endorsed the campaign and thousands of
Canadians have officially shown
their support for it by fillinj: out a
ballot. A nuclear catastropne will
only be averted if enough individuals make the personal deciiion to
stop it from happening. Or Wednesday, do your part by taking five
minutes to fill out a ballot in the
SUB foyer. Your life depends on it.

TA misquoted?
In Motion for TA Senate Seat
(Ubyssey, March 18) I am quoted as
saying that "Dave (Kirshner) and I
felt it was important for TAs to feel
concern with academic issues." As
reported this would imply that I believe that TAs are currently unconcerned with academic issues and
that the creation of a senate position for this group would somehow
rectify this deficiency.
This is clearly not the situation as
seen by Dave Kirshner or myself
and 1 am certain is a position that
would be hotly (and quite correctly)
disputed by any TA. What was in
fact said differs little in form but
greatly in intent and substance. To
the best of my recollection (and that
of others who were present at the
time) what I had said was "Dave
and I felt it was important for senate to recognize TAs' concerns with
academic issues." I hope this will
clarify the position both Dave
Kirshner and I hold on this issue.

blems were solved, the students
could finish their assignments, the
profs would no longer be plagued
by pesky students scrounging for
CC dollars. Most importantly, the
computer science department had
found    a    safetv    valve    for    the
underallocation   of   computer
resources to their students.
The problems inherent in this little scheme are becoming evident
from the very success it has had.
Although I am unsure ot the exact
figures, 1 believe approximately
75,000 CC dollars have been purchased under the pay ID system
since its initiation last year. This
compares to the computer science
department's student allocation of
approximately 300,000 CC dollars
Now granted, there are those
students who purchase extra funds
to do extracurricular computing.
But in light of this staggering sum
and the fact that most students have
neither the time nor the inclination
to do additional computing, one
must conclude that most of these
funds are being used in finishing
class assignments. In other words,
students are being forced to fund
assignments for which the university should be paying.
As a computer science student 1
can attest to the fact that it is impossible to engage in the study of
computer science without the
benefit of a computer. Thus, a
situation has developed where many
students, including myself, do not
possess the financial resources to
adequately compete with our more
affluent classmates.
My complaint is not with the
creation of a pay ID system but
rather with the underhanded way it
forces students to pay for
something that is supposedly part
of their tuition. The situation is
roughly akin to asking chemistry
students to pay for the use of their

Heressey's satire on KKK
twisted parody on 'scum'
The arts undergraduate society
distributed The Heressey newspaper
with a "cartoon" recruitment
poster for the Ku Klux Klan terrorists. This stupid, sophomoric and
cynical attempt to poke fun at the
fascists is both dangerous and an
offence against all unionists, minorities and leftists.
The KKK is no joke. Il is the domestic cutting edge of imperialism's
anti-Soviet war drive. Reagan/Tru-
deau are pushing to restore capitalism in the Soviet Union and other
countries where capitalism has been
overthrown. The gains of the workers' movement must be defended
against imperialism.
It is in the wake of the crusade to
back Solidarity's counter-revolution in Poland, in a rising racist and
anti-communist climate, that the
Klan has been embo dened to
march in the streets of downtown
Vancouver to organize for their
program of genocide.
Isolated and twisted "parodies"
only minimize the threat The cross
burnings, physical assaults and
murders of East Indians are not
funny. During one of their hooded
marches, the Klan hospitalized one
left-wing bookstore attendant.
These scum should be driven
from the streets through labor/minority action, as has been done in
San Francisco and Detroit. This is
the only strategy that will smash
Klan terror.

valid reasons given.
Just a hypothetical case. . .
Hypothetical political problem:
You're an MLA with a theft conviction and stuck supporting an
unpopular government. (No names, mind.) How to get ie-elected?
Well, you know that, according to surveys, there are a lot of bigots
out there you could appeal to. But you're too smart to make overly
racist statements; the media would crucify you. You can't even criticize immigration. Thanks to Doug Collins, everyone's figured that
one out by now, and besides, it's federal jurisdiction.
An inspiration comes: lambaste "visa students." All the bigots
will know what you mean, and you can deflect criticism with a barrage of alleged "information" about "ripoffs." lt doesn't matter if
your facts are right; bigots don't care about facts anyway. So you
pick up the racist vote while staying clear of the muck yourself.
A purely hypothetical case, though.

The arrangement between the
GSC and the president's office is
like that between the faculty club
and the president's office. The faculty club is a university owned
building with university provided
services, with a board of directors
composed of members and of appointees from the president's office. The club hires a manager to
run the daily business. Enter the
faculty   association,    a    separate
organization focusing on the social,
academic, political and financial affairs of the faculty. Suppose that
the president of this faculty association was also chair of the
board of directors of the club facility-
Now suppose that this person and
association cohorts proposed a
grand new society, blending the two
organizations, based on an issue of
faculty control of the facility. Suppose moreover that the proponents
expected the president's office to

agree unquestionably to the new
deal and the membership to applaud. Surely some of the membership would appreciate how ludicrous such a situation would be and
surely members would wonder
whether this was a case of playing
house or playing God.

Graduate Student centre at 4:30

the ballroom. Come see the situation there for yourself, come listen

your vote. Do come.

graduate students, through a representative council of graduate students elected from their departments. Many of us have worked
closely with the grad centre's board
of directors, and with the GSA's
graduate representative assembly,
this past year, and we all support
the new cons:itution as a positive

Steve McMurdo. the second-time winner of Intramural Male Athlete of the Year, represented
his fraternity. Phi Delta Theta, in 22 Intramural
events this year. He placed first in 7 road races,
including the gruelling 10 km Tower Beach Suicide Run. McMurdo took sixth spot in the
Grouse Mountain Ski Challenge, Storm the Wall
Ironman Competition, and the Sharpshooter
Snooker Tourney. His team placed second in the
Arts '20 Relay Race and third in the Water Polo
league. McMurdo played on the Phi Delt teams
in football, hockey, basketball, volleyball,
wrestling, badminton, tennis, swimming, and
the McNulty Team Relays.
Other Top Participants of the Year are: Steve
Baker — Betas: Tim Brown — Dekes; Andy Eng
— Dekes; Neil Carter — Engineering; John Esson
— Phi Delts; Brent Hobday — Betas; Jamie
Lyman — Betas; Brian Pedlar — Betas; Dick
Richards — Phi Delts. These athletes were outstanding in many sports. Congratulations.
Marna Mueller, chosen as Intramural Female
Athlete of the Year, has consistently proven excellence in a variety of sports. She placed first in
the Ironwoman competition, and three road
runs. She was a member of four championship
Forestry teams including basketball, soccer,
swimming, and their Arts '20 Relay Team. Mueller ran in the McNulty Team Relays and pulled for
Forestry in the Tug O' War. Above all, she helped
Forestry accumulate more than twice as many
participation points as any other women's unit,
to win the Top Unit of the Year trophy.
Forestry's domination was seen not only in the
total points tally, but also in claiming eight of the
10 spots for top individual participants of the
year. After Mueller, the runners-up were: Sally
Aitken — Forestry; Cathy Forward — Forestry;
Cathy Jones — Commerce; Kathy Lewis — Forestry; Barb Parr — Forestry; Michelle Rupp —
Phrateres; Marg Stewart — Forestry; Allison
Wagner — Forestry. These athletes were great
assets to their units as well as being outstanding
in their own efforts.
Robert Lindsay (Dekes) and Kathy Kerr and
Moira Teevan (Forestry) were selected as Unit
Managers of the Year. Honorable mention went
to Keith Moody (Geers), Dick Richards (Phi
Delts), Dave Cruickshank (Forestry), Eric Accill
(Fiji), Mike Hong Louie (Commerce), Brent Hobday (Betas), Peter Chong (Koyotes), Bruce McClelland (Kappa Sig), and Gordon Eng (CVC). For
