 Kenny slips, slides for arts
Leaning forward on the podium;
administration president Doug Kenny gravely explained the severity of
UBC's funding shortfall.
"... and so what we did was put
on various brakes," he said. And as
he spoke the podium succumbed to
Kenny's weight and suddenly slipped down.
The ominous sign drew uneasy
laughter from Kenny and 200
members of the arts faculty. Kenny
joked about the omen and continued to outline UBC's dire fiscal
situation and the purpose of his advisory retrenchment committee.
The arts faculty invited Kenny to
its meeting Monday in Buch. 106 in
response to recently expressed anger
at the secrecy which shrouds the
retrenchment committee.
Several arts professors criticized
Kenny for not including an adequate cross-section of campus
representatives on the committee.
Some questioned his leadership
abilities while others attacked him
for blaming the funding shortfall
on faculty wage settlements.
The faculty broke into applause
when one professor urged Kenny to
"take scrupulous care to avoid giving the impression the faculty is
Said another: "If you identify the
problem as a salary problem and
present that to the government,
they'll see the solution as zapping
When asked if the retrenchment
committee could be restructured to
include faculty and student
representation, Kenny said the committee already includes a wide varie
ty of people, including some he
doesn't even know.
He stressed the committee is
strictly advisory and has not yet
made any proposals or recommendations.
"Any notion this committee is a
decision making body is incorrect,"
Kenny said. "What I'm seeking is

wrath on writer
Exercising Will power, the arts
dean attempted to confiscate a
Ubyssey reporter's notes following
Monday's meeting between the arts
faculty and administration president Doug Kenny.
Dean Robert Will also threatened
legal action if a story on the meeting
was printed.
"You know what I do when The
Ubyssey does something I don't
like?" he said. "I call my lawyer."
Will scolded the reporter for attending the meeting, saying The
Ubyssey has been barred from arts
faculty meetings for six years.
"You shouldn't have been here,"
he exclaimed.
When the reporter said he was
not informed the meeting was in
camera and intended to write the
story, Will was outraged.
"Well then, I better take your
notes," he snapped.
He reached for the reporter's
note pad and attempted to take it
away. But the reporter quickly pulled the pad back and refused to give
up the notes.
U of W faculty
urged to retire
Approximately 200 faculty members at Seattle's University of
Washington have been asked to retire prematurely to ease the university's current financial crisis.
According to the U of W student
newspaper, The Daily, university
provost George Beckmann sent approximately 200 letters to all faculty
members age 61 and over encouraging early retirement and outlining
the possible retirement options.
"Obviously, in this time of fiscal
stringency, faculty retirements may
provide some relief," Beck man said
in the letter. "I ask therefore that
you consider the university's retirement options."
The university has sent similar
letters in the past, according to assistant provost for academic affairs
Steve Olswang. "We're not telling
anyone to retire," he said.
Reaction to the proposal, which
went out to faculty and deans in
early October, is still undecided and
uncertain. Retirement and insurance officer Sheryl Wilson said her
Blasted Ubyssey
staff forget paper,
get bombed instead
The Ubyssey had a dynamite issue planned for Thursday. Unfortunately it blew up.
This explosion has caused numerous difficulties and disabilities
among staffers. These injuries,
combined with the usual level of
staff intoxication, have made it difficult to produce our usual fascinating newspaper.
Rumor has it a military technician was responsible for the explosive issue. Thus The Ubyssey has declared Remembrance Day to pacify
soldiers everywhere, and The Ubyssey will not publish Thursday. Remember, if you buy organic poppies
you can produce opium.
office, which counsels faculty and
staff on retirement options, has
been busy lately but Wilson is not
sure whether or not the flurry of activity can be attributed to the administration's recommendations.
She said there have been nine early retirements in the past year,
which is about average.
Beckman says the retirement
package works out to the faculty's
advantage, but faculty member
Richard Kummert disagrees.
"Financially, if one looks at that
(the early retirement plan), most
faculty persons discover that they
can't come out of it with anything
less than reduced retirement
funds," said the recently resigned
faculty subcommittee chair on retirement.
Cases probably exist where faculty members retire out of loyalty to
the university, but "there's sort of a
limit on what price you put on loyalty," Kummert said.
He said he knows several retirement-age professors who are "intensely loyal to the school," but
after they look at their retirement
options and the effect of inflation,
they decide to keep working until
they are 70.
Kummert said faculty members
could end up receiving less money if
they retired early. Normally, benefits are spread over the years of life
expectancy. But if faculty members
retire early, not only would they
lose the extra money they would
have contributed to their retirement
fund, but their benefits would also
be spread out over a longer period.
A University of Washington faculty member may retire any time after he or she reaches age 62, and
before age 70, which is the mandatory retirement age. A partial retirement plan also exists, where faculty
members who retire before age 70
can annually elect for re-employment up to 40 per cent time.

"I have no doubt any recommendations made by the committee will
bring joy to none at the university."
Kenny said further retrenchment
at UBC will not be necessary if the
provincial governmente responds
positively to his request for further
funding, but he said the university
should be prepared for a 'no'
"I don't know what will
happen," he said. "But if layoffs
are ever required the process will
not be done quickly or easily."
Kenny said Social Credit
philosophy poses an obstacle for
university funding.
"There's a party in power that
believes in no deficits. That's a
religion to them," he said. "Now,
I'm not making fun of them," he

Onfar/o limits new programs
TORONTO (CUP) — A freeze
placed on the development of new
programs at Ontario universities
could threaten the institutions'
The Ontario Ministry of Colleges
and Universities advised the heads
of the province's post-secondary institutions Nov. 2 they must now
seek approval for the development
of new programs from the Ontario
Council of University Affairs.
The institutions previously had
the power to establish new programs in.all undergraduate studies
except professional schools.
Arthur Kruger, University of
Toronto arts and science dean,
claims the move could "be a very
serious intrusion on university
"I am as shocked as anybody,"
he said. "This could mean that we
can't repackage our courses."
But William Sayers, communications director for the Council of
Ontario Universities, claimed
Kruger was overreacting. Sayers
said the move is designed to ensure
that universities don't devise new
programs which would be contrary
to new university policies arising
from the recently released report on
the universities' future.
But a researcher with the Ontario
Federation of Students said the
freeze is just the first step in a new
round of cutbacks. "Later they will
cut back on exisiting programs,"
claimed Mark Rosenfeld. "The
provincial government is trying to
pass the buck to the federal government."
A ministry spokesperson said the
freeze is due to uncertainties about
the future federal funding for post-
secondary education and possible
changes in the structure of the
educational system. A decision is
expected soon on the implementation of recommendations made in
the report on the future role of Ontario universities.
Federal finance minister Allan
MacEachen has threatened to trim
$1.5 billion from the federal
transfer payments to the provinces
which fund social services, including post-secondary education.
At the same time, the report on
Ontario universities says that if the
current provincial policy of under-
funding universities continues, the
province will have to begin closing
Have you ever cheated?
Doug Kenny doesn't think there are many cheaters at UBC, but he
doesn't want students to be surprised by the penalties laid against them
when they are caught.
The administration president sent every UBC student a personal memo
dated Oct. 26 warning them of the penalties they face for academic misconduct. Kenny said, as far as he knows, the letter is unique among Canadian
universities, although U.S. universities tend to publicize penalties heavily.
"It came as a shock to the six students suspended last year that the
university would have disciplinary action against them," Kenny said.
"But it came as a surprise to me that they were surprised."
The suspensions were imposed for cheating and plagiarism. Although
only two were indefinite suspensions, all were recorded on the students'
transcripts. "Those penalties can haunt you for the rest of your life," Kenny warned.
There has not been a noticeable increase in the amount of cheaters
caught each year, Kenny said, but the constant number is still troublesome.
"I'm just trying to put an end to it," he said. "Even one student is too
much." Page 2

ambitious women and men all
across Canada.

three companies so you are
not starting at the base of a gigantic corporate pyramid. The three
companies are (i) Gulf Canada
Limited, the overall planning entity (ii) Gulf Canada Resources

develops oil, gas and other
energy sources and (iii) Gulf

refines and packages petroleum
products and gets them to the
consumer. Each division needs

of disciplines, from M.B.A. to
geophysicist, from chemical or
mechanical engineering to

work. We believe we're more
aggressive, more energetic. Gulf
management is a little more adventurous than most. Witness the
bold decisions to invest millions in

for clever people is a daring move
in this world of hard-artery corporate structures. Certain departments have sophisticated career

keep Gulf ahead of the pack.
Quite candidly, we are aiming for
the top graduates to fill our positions. By "top graduates," we
mean more than just marks.
Drive, ambition and leadership
qualities count as well.
5 "Diversity" describes opportunities for Gulf's future - and
for your future with Gulf. In exploration, for instance, and in
energy options, Gulf has gone in
several directions, does not put all
its eggs in one basket. And there is
a diversity of opportunities for
you as a result of Gulf's dividing
itself into three companies.

U.S. scholars support oppression
American academia is rationalizing third world authoritarianism
in the name of development, an
Egyptian scholar and lawyer charged Monday.
"American scholars have produced neutron bomb theories —
they're willing to destroy human beings for the sake of development,"
Naguib Hazad told 20 people in
SUB 211.
"In treating authoritarianism as
an aid to development, what they
ignore is the effect of authorita-
nianism on human beings," Hazad
"As regards the attitude of
American political scientists to
authoritarian regimes, I dare to say
that it is supportive," he added.
American scholars try to appease
and justify military governments
and to placate tyrants, Hazad said.
"We are not only dealing with
political scientists, we are dealing
with politicians who make rationalizations for authoritarianism."
American universities are closely
tied to government departments,
and have great influence on foreign
policy, he said. There is a continual
interchange of advice and personnel

The shows could be broadcast on
the knowledge network or local
cablevision systems, according to
student administrative commission
member Terry Cox.
"This will provide us with direct
access to the public," Cox said.
He added UBC has four television studios, and could produce the
programs at a "reasonable cost."
Cox said the show would provide
an alternative to The Ubyssey and
CITR radio.
SAC secretary Cliff Stewart said
most students would not be able to
receive the program. Most students
do not have cablevision or a converter, he added.

External affairs co-ordinator
James Hollis tried unsuccessfully to
have council reconsider the appointment of a student to a
representative UBC senate position.
At its previous meeting, council
decided to appoint a replacement to
a vacant at-large position, rather
than hold a byelection, the normal
"The precedent is one council
should not establish," Hollis said.
"(Leaving the position empty) is
not going to cripple senate." There
are currently 17 student senate positions.
Science representative Charles
Menzies agreed. "We live in a
democracy, we have to have elections," he said.
Hollis said the original motion
returned council "to the dark
ages," when council appointed
AMS executives. "What we are losing by not having a rep (for the remaining four months of office), is
compensated by maintaining our integrity."
But SAC member Terry Cox
charged the appointment "serves
the interests of students as a whole.
Student representation is very important."
Said engineering undergraduate
society president Lance Balcom:
"The student council route (of appointment) allows someone to get in
who's competent."

caught thanks

A 31-year-old Vancouver man
was arrested Friday in connection
with two recent sexual attacks in the
university endowment lands.
The suspect appeared in Richmond provincial court Monday on
one count of rape and one of indecent assault.
The suspect matched the description which appeared on posters circulated in the area by the UBC
housing office and the RCMP.

Deidra McDevitt, organizer of
Woods Watch, a group of parents
who patrolled the wooded areas
looking for the suspect, said Monday she was relieved.
"I think it's great because it
shows that citizens can have an effect," McDevitt said of the arrest.
But she added residents in the
area should not forget about the
concerns the recent incident raised.
"It can't be considered over. The
RCMP were saying by no means

Allen praised the car driver's attitude in this particular incident.
"Boulevard motorists should
slow down," she said. "I can't see
why some students are always in a
hurry; especially at times when
small children frequent the intersections, it's important for drivers to
take particular caution."
Workers around the world must
support Poland's Solidarity trade
union, a political activist said Saturday.
"No state, either East or West,
defends the working class. It's the
working class which defends the
working class internationally," Tad
Kawecki told 70 people in the Britannia school auditorium.
Solidarity is workers' attempts to
gain control of their own lives, Kawecki said.
Polish workers have taken over
factories and set up workers' councils before, but the state eventually
crushed them. "Solidarity's logic
and aim is to establish independence from the state, for the simple
reason that the state is corrupt,"
Kawecki said.
But the world doesn't totally
understand the situation in Poland,
he said. "It is unfortunate that misconceptions abound that Poland is
a socialist country and that Solidarity is destroying socialism. How
could Solidarity destroy something
that does not exist?" he said.
Kawecki, who served as a translator at Solidarity's founding convention in 1980, said Polish workers
want to establish true socialism — a
society under worker control. "At
no time at the founding convention
did I hear anyone condemn socialism," he said.
The Vancouver Committee for
Solidarity with Solidarnosc (Solidarity Committee in Poland) sponsored the forum which also featured
Bogdan Czaykowski, professor and
head of UBC's Slavonic studies department.
Czaykowski said Solidarity's for
mation was possible because workers overcame their fear of the state.
"Polish society has been ruled and
dominated by fear. That is what
broke down in 1980 — fear," he
said. "Solidarity is not only a trade
union, it is a political movement, a
movement of national liberation."
Solidarity is a democratic attempt
to change society, Czaykowski said.
"Solidarity is an extremely democratic movement. It is democratic
with a vengeance," he said.
"Solidarity would never let anybody control it — not the Church,
not the state, not even its own Lech
Walesa," he added.
"In the last 15 months, we have
witnessed a self-limiting revolution," said Czaykowski. "Solidarity has changed the system but not
overthrown it." The current debate
within Solidarity is how much the
system must be changed "so that
changes will be permanent and not
be rolled back."
"What is happening in Poland
may perhaps happen in the Soviet
Union in 10 or 15 years, or even
earlier," Czaykowski said. "By
looking at Poland, the Soviet Union
is perhaps looking into a mirror of
the future."
PC's need mere recruits
The Progressive Conservative party needs to recruit more women and
youths and win new Canadians' approval, a PC spokesperson said Friday.
"We need a strong youth wing to influence the party's direction. But the
older members have fixed views and policies which make it difficult to
broaden our base," said Mac Campbell, one of the PC's five national vice
"Youth is the best investment we have, however," he told 30 people in
SUB 212.
Campbell said the party also needs more active membership from
women. "New women coming in want to be integrated into the mainstream
of the party, but the older, traditional types want to keep their women's
Another problem for the party is the tendency of new Canadians to vote
for the party which was in power at the time they arrived.
"They are forever indebted to the Liberals and continue to vote for them
in each succeeding election," he said.
"Our basic problem is we have to broaden our base. To achieve a national majority, it is critical that we build up our influence in Quebec and
the west. Our party has the capacity to become a national party, a capacity
that the Liberals are losing."
Campbell said he was pleased the audience was three times the size of the
one which attended his first speech at UBC.

A silly Will
It is traditional for The Ubyssey to call for arts dean Robert Will resignation at least once a year. Obviously, this year is no exception.
There is a reason why we pick on Will. He is undemocratic, uninterested
with the concerns of students, and certainly likes to keep students in the
Every year Will performs an unforgivably flagrant demostration of these
traits. He has barred students from faculty meetings and denied students
representation on important decision making committees. And for several
years he refused to speak to The Ubyssey.
Will also completely fails to represent the interests of arts — students
and faculty — to the rest of society.
But on top of this. Will performs all these antics in an incredibly silly
fashion, unbecoming of an academic.
This year Will has reached the ultimate in silly behavior.
He accosted a Ubyssey reporter who attended Monday's meeting between arts faculty and administration president Doug Kenny, insisting the
reporter should not have been there. He tried to take the reporter's notes,
and threatened to sick his lawyers on The Ubyssey if the story ran.
An arts dean has a responsibility to keep students informed on issues affecting them. This meeting was a discussion of cutbacks and academic
priorities — very important to all students.
Wishing to bar the press from the meeting is another example of why
Will is unfit to be a dean.

one day after they are returned, you can borrow them again.
In the Sedgewick library, home of the

library. Perhaps you'll be haunted by James
Earl Jones as The Emperor Jones, and you'll
hear the actor's discussions and Theodore
Mann, the director, in recorded rehearsals of
Eugene O'Neill's play. Or you may be captured by — may almost believe — Orson
Welles' Mercury Theatre of the Air, and the
too brilliant radio play, The War of the
Worlds. On Oct. 30, 1938 the 23-year-old actor director updated H. G. Wells' tale of invaders from Mars in the form of newscasts,
acted so naturally that panicked listeners
feared they were real! The record of this
thriller is only one of the Wilson treasures
you can share, for — but where else could
you enjoy them for only $25 a year?

Society can accept pornography
It was a disappointing start to the
year. The Ubyssey only published a
couple of standard rape articles
from SFU. Kurt Preinspurger turned his writing pseudo-talents to
Strangeloveian schemes of food and
sterility. Even the UBC Women's
Centre had stopped claiming to be
an AMS Committee. I was under
the depressing belief that there were
no good arguments about feminism
left for me to get involved in.
Well, Julie Wheelwright cheered
me up considerably with her article
" 'Play play' porn breeds cruelty"
(The Ubyssey, Oct. 30), which I object in two major areas: her treatment of the issue of non-violent
porn and its relation to sexism, and
her view of the men who participate
in violent porn.
Wheelwright seems to believe
that all pornography is, if not
physically violent, then morally
violent in the sense that it is
"degrading" to women. However,
the bulk of easily-accessible porn
can be interpreted as degrading only
in that it involved a display of nudity in a way western society might
find embarrassing. Most 20-year-
old heterosexual men such as myself
like looking at naked women in the
same way 20-year-old. heterosexual
women presumably like looking at
naked   men.
Wheelwright does not mention
the proliferation of gay and lesbian
porn magazines in her article.
Feminists usually claim to be
against this pornography as well,
but sidestep the fact that it does
not fit into their simplistic view of
porn as an expression of sexist
violence by men against women.
Porn which cannot be included in
the kinds discussed by Wheelwright
demonstrates that it usually has
nothing to do with sexism and
degradation, but just the sexual instinct, of whatever sex or orientation.
Wheelwright only alludes to nonviolent porn in order to set up a
strawman: "it may be too easy for
men and our society to excuse (the
film on violent porn) because it
shows the extreme rather than the
norm. Although, for millions of
men, it is the norm." Note the
phrase "men and society," as
though men are somehow excluded
from society in her view. I can only
repeat what I've said before: sexism
is not something that men do to
women, or even the society does to
women, but something that society
does to itself, and as such, men and
women both suffer from it.
Men in our society are brought
up with the belief that they harbour
a dark, insatiable sex drive that
pure, insouciant "girls" must be
persuaded to satisfy. With such a
highly negative self-image, is it any
wonder that some men's sexual
desires become twisted to the kind
of porn Wheelwright describes?
Seldom have I seen a feminist article that recommends that women
relieve men of the daunting burden
of always taking the initiative in
sexual relationships. As far as many
feminists go, a liberated man is not
a man who has thrown off society's
stereotypes, but simply a man who
agrees with women's liberation.
I see " 'Play play' porn breeds
cruelty"   not   as   an   attempt   to
understand violent porn, but as an
attempt to lump violent and nonviolent porn together and fit them
into a convenient slot in the radical
feminist's highly-stereotyped

UBC, SFU split b'ball hoop classic
After a dramatic last-second
64-62 win by the UBC Thunderbirds Friday night, the Simon Fraser Clansmen came back Saturday
night with a 57-50 win to even the
Buchanan Basketball Classic at a
game each.
There were more than 900 fans in
War Memorial on Saturday as UBC
blew a game-long lead and went
eight minutes without scoring a
point. UBC coach Peter Mullins
said until then UBC had the game
totally under control.
Mullins could not explain why his
team suddenly went as flat as it did.
He said the same thing happened
last weekend when a nine minute
scoring drought led to the loss to
the Meralomas.
The game's top scorer and the
only UBC player to hit double figures, was forward Bob Forsyth with
25 points. SFU's top shooter was
Mike Jackal with 21 points.
Both games featured very poor
shooting, with the worst on Saturday. SFU shot 35 per cent while
UBC only hit 33 per cent. Mullins
called his team's shooting "ridiculous." Forsyth and only one other
player hit more than one shot from
the floor.
Freshman guard Lloyd Scmbb,
who was 2 for 17 on the weekend,
turned in the worst shooting performance. While Mullins said he is
not happy with this, he is not particularly worried about it either because Scrubb is not attempting bad
shots. Mullins hopes Scrubb's
slump ends when the season starts.
While the shooting Friday at SFU
was only marginally better, the
game was light years ahead in entertainment value. With 10 seconds
left, the score was tied at 62-62,
SFU had the ball in UBC's half and
was trying to work it to Jackel for
the last shot.
The pass never made it as UBC
Toronto on top
UBC places third
The University of Toronto
women's field hockey team
defeated the University of Victoria
1-0 Sunday at UBC to win the
Canadian Inter-university Athletic
Union championship.
Toronto's Terry Wheatley scored
from a penalty corner with less than
five minutes to go. Defending national champions UBC placed third
in the tournament.
According to Toronto coach Liz
Hoffman, proud to have won the
gold; "There was fine play in the
final by both Toronto and UVic.
We played a possession game with
open season
with wins
The men's and women's volleyball teams travelled to Victoria on
the weekend and both squads came
back with 3-2 records.
It was the opening tournament of
the Canada West season for both
teams. The season consists of five
tournaments with the last at UBC at
the end of February.
The women's team had the oddest tournament as it beat the team it
lost to most of last year and lost to a
couple of teams it had beaten consistently.
The women beat Saskatchewan,
the defending national champions,
3-0, Alberta by the same score and
won by default over Lethbridge.
They lost to Calgary 3-0 and Victoria 3-1.
The men beat Alberta in three
games, Saskatchewan in four and
Lethbridge in five, but lost three
straight to both Victoria and Calgary.
Women's coach Sandy Silver said
the addition of an extra tournament
gave her less time to prepare her
team for the season. She said this
lack of time hurt because she has six
first year players on the team, and
her strongest player, Tara Senft,
was away for three weeks with the
national junior team.
Silver said she expects UBC to be
one of the top two teams by the end
of the season. She said UBC has
approached the season differently
than the other teams, and she cannot see either Calgary or Victoria
getting much better.
The next league tournament for
the men and women will be Nov. 20
and 21 in Edmonton.
patience and control, attempting to
force their defence into errors from
which we could score."
Said Victoria coach and former
national team member Sandy
Drever, "We were unlucky on a
couple of occasions. However, I
feel that on the whole we were
under pressure. Toronto played
well and we always had our hands
Hoffman cited Toronto's ball
control, team play and their ability
to come from behind as reasons for
the win. One of their three come-
from-behind successes was in the
opening game against UBC Thursday afternoon. UBC was leading
1-0 until the last 30 seconds of play
when Toronto was awarded a
penalty stroke and scored to tie the
UBC coach Gail Wilson said that
game gave UBC a bad start and was
a factor in their disappointing third
place finish. Another key game for
UBC and their only loss in the tournament was against Canada West
rival UVic Friday afternoon. UVic
won 2-1 on a goal UBC claimed was
shot from outside the playing circle.
"The UVic game was difficult
and we did not play well, but we
were just beginning to get our confidence back (after Thursday's tie)
when the disputed goal set back
again," said Wilson. "Apart from
the mental effect, it proved to be
enough to keep us out of the final."
At the end of Saturday's play
UBC had a 3-1-1 record including
victories over Dalhousie and York
for a total of 7 points. They needed
a University of New Brunswick tie
or win over Toronto to qualify for
the finals.
But Toronto won 4-2 and finished round robin play tied at 8 points
with Victoria. Toronto and Victoria
both finished with 3-0-2 records,
having played to a 1-1 tie on Friday.
Wilson was disappointed UBC
went into the tournament ranked
number one in Canada but did not
even make it to the finals. But,
"considering that this was supposed
to be a rebuilding year, I am pleased
to be third in Canada," she said.
UBC's Terri Drain and Jean
Mustard were among those named
to the tournament all-star team.

guard Ian McKinnon stole the ball,
raced down court and sent a pass
over to Jamie Boyle who laid it in
for the win as the time ran out.
Boyle topped all scorers with 23.
Forsyth had 18 and the top SFU
gunners were Jackel and Mike Bu-
tera who had 17 and 16 respectively.
Mullins said Forsyth gave his
"usual solid performance in both
games" and that Boyle was out
standing Friday night.
UBC won the game from the free
throw line. UBC was 20 for 25 while
SFU only hit 12 of 18. Again Boyle
was the top man here as he went 11
for 12.
Since the UBC and SFU athletic
departments only scheduled two
games for the Classic it is not
known when a tie-breaking game
will be held.
Mullins said he was all in favor of
it being called a tie for this year as it
will be extremely difficult to schedule extra games once the intercollegiate season begins Nov. 20.
The only immediate opportunity
would be if the two teams were to
meet in the Tip-off tournament at
SFU this weekend. To do that, both
UBC and SFU will have to win or
lose in the opening round.
