Array UBC eliminates 206 TAs
THE UBYSSEY
There are 206 fewer leaching
assistants at UBC this academic
year.
The teaching assistants union
released figures Monday showing
21.7 per cent of last year's assistant-
ships have been left vacant. This
seriously damages the quality of
education at UBC, said union president Jonathan Katz.
"Students at this institution are
being short changed in at least three
ways" Katz said.
"There are fewer and larger
discussion groups and lab sessions,
access to faculty has decreased
because their work load has increased and finally, without adequate
employment for graduate students,
UBC will fail to attract top quality
students," charged Katz.
The union may file a grievence
over the job cuts said Katz.
The current contract says that 60
days notice must be given to the
union prior to elimination of jobs
for either technological reasons or
changes in the way in which the
university uses teaching assistants
said Katz.
Katz said the univesity did not
give the union notice.
But while the contract stipulates
notice prior to eliminating jobs, the
university has the right to decrease
the number of teaching assistants.
"There is no contract requirement
for the university to hire anyone.
And it's too damn bad," Katz said.
"There is nothing in the contract
which guarantees our jobs," he added.
Some departments and faculties
experienced severe cuts.
In physics, the number of
graduate student assistants is down
to 68 from 97 and the number of
markers is cut from 15 to three.
Commerce lost 11 GTA's and
now only has five markers compared to 39 in Oct., 1980.
Civil engineering dropped 16
markers from the payroll, leaving
them with one. They also lost two
GTA positions.
Computer-science, rather than
lowering the number of teaching
assistants hired more TAs at a lower
rate of pay.
In 1980 computer science
employed 25 GTA's and no
markers.
For the 1981 academic year the
department eliminated six graduate
assistants and hired 21 markers instead.
Markers are paid half the rate of
graduate teaching assistants. They
do not have contact with students in
teaching situations.
"The union will not sit idly by
while TA jobs, and hence educational standards are slashed," said
Katz.

Two attacked
By JULIE WHEELWRIGHT
Two sexual assaults on the endowment lands in the past two
weeks have area residents worried
about their safety.
The attacker is described by
police as a white male, 30 to 35
years old, about six feet tall, very
thin build, brown hair, olive skin
with cigarette stained teeth.
According to Diedra McDevitt, a
fourth year psychology student and
area resident, the attacker, who assaulted one child and one UBC student, has been seen lurking around
University Hill school and Acadia
camp.
MOLESTER . . . composite
McDevitt added she and area parents have organized Woods Watch,
a group that patrols the areas where
the attacks occurred. "A number of
parents have volunteered and have
been getting out there in the
woods."
The RCMP have also increased
their patrols but according to McDevitt "they still don't get out of
their cars." Both attacks occurred
in broad daylight, she added.
McDevitt said the attacker is probably just interested in children as
the woman he attacked was "very
diminutive, she probably could
have been mistaken for a child."
She adds children and residents
need to learn some self-defense
techniques.
"I don't know how seriously they
(the children) are taking it. The
standard reaction from the victims
was 'I didn't know it would happen
to me.' "
Victims claim the attacker grabbed them from behind and threatened them with murder if they
screamed or called for help, she
said.
Paving the woods will not solve
the area's safety'problem, she said.
"It won't make the woods any
safer. If there's enough of us (parents) out there it will be safer."
A mounted patrol through the
area would also increase its safety,
she added.
RCMP bulletins posted in the
area advise residents: not to walk or
jog alone in isolated areas even in
daylight; travel with a companion
to night classes; avoid walking on
the side of pathways closest to the
woods; and to know where their
children are playing at all times.
The RCMP will meet with Woods
Watch and other concerned residents Thursday night to discuss
what to do if they spot the attacker,
self-defense techniques, and legal
aspects of the case.
Douglas won't cut class
Canadian University Press
Douglas College students
and faculty refused Monday to
contribute to lowering the
quality of education at their institution.
Students and faculty would
not provide information that
the education ministry might
use to select what services and
courses are cut back.
The ministry asked principal
Bill Day to indicate where the
college budget could be cut if
its 1982-83 budget were not increased to meet inflation.
Without a budget increase
the college would be forced to
cut about 20 per cent of its
budget, Day said.
Kevin Hallgate, a Douglas
College student society executive member, said he opposed
giving the ministry this information. It is a threat to students,
he said.

WALKING ON WATER brings no solution to slippery dilema as fogbound foresters trip the wet fantastic during
log burling competition in Empire Pool Thursday. Would-be Galileans stepped off deep end, finding few comforts
in chilly waters. Secret of game is for burly burlers to balance on slippery timebers longer than possible, a difficult
task under best conditions. Festivities were part of wild and wcioly forestry week, one of many undergrad weeks
designed to stir patriotism and make students look silly. Above students obviously look silly, but true test of
patriotism comes afterwards when pneumonia sets in.
Presidents want tuition hike
Canadian University Press
Doubled tuition fees, aimed at reducing universities' dependence on
government funding, are recommended in a report by seven university presidents.
The seven, members of an Association of Universities and Colleges
of Canada committee, said a
greater share of the costs of education should be billed to students,
the users.
Committee chair, University of
Toronto president James Ham, said
he would like to see tuition fees
comprise as much as 25 pe*" cent of
universities' operating costs nationally. Fees are now 10 per cent of
UBC's operating budget.
The proposal would mean that
tuition fees at UBC would rise to
about $1,770 from $710 for senior
students in Arts.
Ham said universities and colleges have been relying too heavily
on government support. He added
fees should reflect a kind of "social
contract" between students and society, where those who benefit directly pay a larger part of the costs.
The report, presented yesterday
at the association's conference in
Winnipeg, states an increase in fees
should be accompanied by increased student assistance.
UBC professor James Foulks,
president of the Canadian Association of University Teachers, rejected the AUCC proposal. The association has no formal position on
tuition fees, he said, but "without
question" most faculty members
oppose increased tuition.
He wondered whether any study
has compared the cost of tuition to
student assistance.
"The response when money gets
tight is to search for corners to
cut," Foulks said.
"But in the imminent hassle over
the division of the pie between them
(the federal and provincial governments) I hope they just remember
the university system is an essential
part of society and don't let it go
down the drain," he said. "And it
has."
Many institutions are now underfunded, Foulks said. And education
funding "is on the threshold of becoming a political football very
soon. Our organization is very loath
to be drawn into a political battle."
Ham said university administrators were also concerned about government pressure to concentrate on
job training programs.
A study by CAUT on tuition
fees, expected within the academic
year, considered a not yet public
federal government proposal to
provide an undefined remittance to
students for tuition fees. "That
kind of arrangement opens the door
to more targeted funding," Foulks
said.
It created the possibility of providing more tuition vouchers to
professional students like engineers. Page 2

ANGRY DEMONSTRATORS, including members of UBC's environmental interest group, marched in Vancouver Friday to protest B.C. Hydro's proposed Hat Creek project. March was followed by rally in front of B.C.
Hydro building on Burrard St., where demonstrators were told plan to mine coal and convert it into energy would
destroy much of Interior's environment. Hydro was ciriticized for not seeking public input in its formulation of
future energy plans, and protestors demanded public hearings into B.C.'s energy future.
Clubs give input on new policy
By CRAIG BROOKS
The current SUB bookings policy
is vulnerable to abuse by large
groups, a UBC club president
charged Monday.
The large number of engineering
clubs enable them to mass book
popular time spots depriving less
active clubs, Amnesty International
UBC president Horatio de la Ceuva
told 25 club executives.
"It's not a plot to take over
bookings," debating society president John Miller said.
The large number of bookings
are caused by an active 1,600
member undergraduate society said
Miller.
The student administrative commission organized the meeting to
get club and undergraduate society
input on a new SUB bookings
policy. Last week several clubs accused SAC of neglecting to solicit
club input on the new policy and its
advance notice.
The new policy, for the 1982 SUB
bookings and originally slated to
begin last Wednesday, reserved
weekly time periods for single date
bookings. Clubs could no longer
book a room for the term on given
week days.
Miller said limiting all the rooms
only to single bookings during
specific times was "absurd."
SFU hikes too low
Canadian University Press
A 13.8 per cent salary increase to
SFU faculty has failed to please,
said faculty association president
Gene Bridwell Thursday. The increase was awarded by arbitration
Oct. 7.
"We're disappointed because
we've fallen behind UBC" which
received an 18 per cent increase last
month, he said. "Over the years
we've worked hard to maintain
parity."
But faculty association
negotiator Richard Schwindt was
more optimistic.
"It (the salary raise) could be better, but I don't feel it's grounds for
gnashing     teeth"     he     said.
"However, it would have been
much nicer if the UBC settlement
came down in June."
SFU arbitrator Irwin Nathason
agreed to consider a similar 18 per
cent hike, although he was making
his lower and- binding decision at
the time of the UBC settlement.
According to Schwindt, the SFU
Faculty Association will take up the
issue again in the 1982 negotiations,
beginning this April.
The increase will raise assistant
professors' salaries to $33,500 from
$29,000 ($1,100 less than UBC),
associate professors' to $41,000
from $36,000 ($1,300 less) and full
status professors' to $54,000 from
$47,500 annually. Librarians and
lab instructors will also benefit.
"Bunching (block booking times)
at one end of the week is
ridiculous," said pharmacy karate
club spokesperson Lynne Mariott.
The meeting produced "quite
reasonable and well thought-out
ideas," said Alma Mater Society
administration director Bill
Maslechko.
Maslechko added three major
recommendations SAC members
will consider include:
• A percentage of smaller SUB
rooms reserved strictly for single
booking use at high demand times;
• Block bookings scheduled at
low-use times, like the early morning and dinner hour;
• Groups holding block bookings be flexible a number of times a
month.
"Clubs can't bitch about lack of
input," SAC member Dick
Bark will said after the meeting.
"Everyone was invited."
"We are still going to have complaints. SUB is booked to capacity.
It's only a rearrangement to make it
more equitable," Barkwill said.
SAC will draw up a revised bookings policy and present it to an all-
club meeting next Monday at 6 p.m.
in SUB 206 for further club input
before the policy is put into effect.
AMS programs coordinator
Meral Aydin slammed the group for
not supporting a defeated SUB
renovations referendum last year
which would have added 15,000
square feet of club space. "We are
bitching about the rooms, let's do
something. Let's take the
initiative," she said.
Gear needs
overstated
As Mark Twain would put it,
reports of severe engineer shortages
are greatly exaggerated.
Predictions that Canada will
soon have a shortage of qualified
engineers are exaggerated, according to the Canadian Society for
Professional Engineers.
And those predictions could
make current problems in the field
worse and lead to an oversupply in
the future.
CSPE president A. A. Akhtar
said recently that some predictions
reflect a very selective, short term
excess demand for engineers in
specific areas, but unless the
economy improves there is a
"distinct possibility that such short
term demand will not materialize
and the result will be oversupply."
Some of the factors limiting demand include the decline of the
nuclear industry, falling employment in aerospace and the electrical
delays in megaprojects, Akhtar
said.
"We should learn more about the
utilization of engineers, scientists,
technicians, technologists and skilled tradespeople in the workplace
and be cautious in calling for
dramatic increases in the output of
our engineering schools." Akhtar
said.
There were about 107,000
qualified engineers registered in
Canada in 1980, compared to
64,000 in 1970, he said. Total
undergraduate engineering enrolment at Canadian universities for
1980-81 was 32,179. compared with
30,758 in 1979-80. and graduate
enrolment was 5.319. compared to
4.930.
Akhtar said if economic and professional opportunities were mi-
proved, and employers offered
premium salaries and other inducements to encourage mobility to
less popular areas, any possibility of
and   electronics   industries,    and     general shortages would disappear.
200 protestors
hit Chilean deals
About 200 angry demonstrators
protested Sunday night Canadian
business involvement with Chile's
fascist regime.
While Canadian and .Chilean
business people gathered in the
Four Seasons Hotel for a convention to discuss trade deals, protesters outside shouted "'Chile si. junta
no."
The Canadian Association for
Latin America organized the conference, which ends tonight.
Throughout the conference angry
members of Vancouver's community, including representatives of
UBC's Latin American Solidarity
Committee and NDP club, picketed
the conference. Picketing begins tonight at 5 p.m. in front of the Vancouver Board of Trade Centre.
UBC NDP spokesperson Lawrence Kootnikoff said Monday
there is broad community opposition to Canadian involvement in
Chile. About half of Sunday night's
protesters were Chilean refugees, he
said.
The Counter CAI A Committee.
a«coalition ol humanitarian, labor
and political organizations, is ieau-
ing the protest against the coriter-
ence.
The committee *ays Canadian
business peopie arc contributing to
ihe abuse of low-paid Chilean
workers, who arc suppressed by a
right wing military dictatorship led
by president Augusto Pinochet.
The committee says the conference demonstrates Canadian support of the regime and that increased trade with Chile will simply allow
Pinochet to keep the Chilean people
suppressed.
The picketers are carrying placards and distributing literature urging Canadians to boycott Chilean
products and to oppose Canadian
trade with Chile. More information
about the protest can be obtained
from the UBC NDP club or LASC.
Hospital autonomy?
UBC's health sciences centre will
soon have legal status seperate from
the university as an operating body,
according to Lloyd Detwiller, executive director of the health
sciences management committee.
"Once it is established as a
seperate legal entity, we can operate
administration * and finance the
same as other teaching hospitals.
We should be equal (to other
teaching hospitals in B.C.)?' Detwiller said Wednesday.
Negotiations for the hospital
board's autonomy are near completion, Detwiller said. Autonomy
would remove control of the
hospital from UBC's board of
governors.
Detwiller said the change would
mean more control for the hospital
over departmental changes and new
education programs.
But autonomy will not completely sever relations with the board of
governors, said Detwiller.
"We want to be part of the
university family. We don't want to
lose the excellent cooperation we
have had here," he said. He added
the board will be kept informed of
important hospital matters.
Detwiller said he is currently conferring with medicine department
heads to prepare for an agreement
on autonomy. He said settlement is
hoped for the end of the year.
Unique course offered
Canadian University Press
The continuing education department at Capilano College is sponsoring a unique course this fall —
The Gay and Lesbian Experience.
The perceived absence of a forum
for discussion of gay and lesbian
issues in the Lower Mainland, was
the motivation to develop the non-
credit course last April.
According to organizer Penny
Goldsmith, the course is the first
broad course for lesbians and gay
men. "There's nothing like this
around," Goldsmith said.
Issues covered in the eight weekly
sessions include: legal considerations of child custody; wills and
prejudice in the courts; myihs and
stereotypes and health issues.
Included will be examples of film
and video presentations by
homosexual artists, stereotypes in
popular literature and the history of
the gay movement over the past
decade. Page 4

NEWS ITEM:
Canadian Association for
Latin America hosts
Chileans in Vancouver
business conference.
It's sickening
Not even the slightest attempt is made to hide the terrible truth: Chile is
ruled by a brutal, fascist regime.
Chilean people are denied almost every conceivable human right. They
are forced to work for low wages and efforts to form unions are suicidal.
Even Canada's federal government opposes Chile's perpetual violation of
rights.
Yet, instead of driving away Canadian business interests, the horrible
reality of Chile's brutal regime actually attracts Canadian business.
Because there are never any threats of unions making outrageous demands like decent pay and safe working conditions, business continually
invests in Chile.
And so we share the outrage the Vancouver community feels that on our
very doorstep Chileans are making trade deals with Canadians. The
downtown trade convention, organized by the Canadian Association for
Latin America, is nothing short of sickening.
We applaud the efforts of protestors from all over the community to express indignation and contempt of this event by picketing the Four
Seasons Hotel. And we urge UBC students to join the final picket tonight
at 5 p.m. in front of the Vancouver Board of Trade Centre at 1177 W.

Craig Yuill felt for the comforting presence of Ross Burnett, the only other photographer. "Where is everybody?" he asked. Sick, said Julie Wheelwright.
Writing midterms, said Glen Sanford. Late, said Eric Eggertson as he arrived after cocktail time with Craig Brooks. Scott McDonald, alone at sports desk, said
John Boyle and Pat MacLeod were already gone and Kent Westerburg hadn't arrived. Verne McDonald, the only old hack, thought Chris Wong and Sylvia
Berryman might be the same person because only one of them was in the office at any one time. Glen Schaefer, the only staffer who had ever worked for the
Kelowna Capital News, found Debbie Wilson alone in the bureau and talked about how he hated crowds. All the same, we could use more staff, said everyone.
There are a number of points
regarding the letter 'Clubs slam executive indifference' (Oct. 15 issue
of The Ubyssey) that require some
clarification.
1.) The abruptness of the memo
is probably the issue of most concern. By the time we were alerted to
the problem it was already very
close to the opening date for bookings. We had already bumped the
booking date once and felt that to
do so again would cause the clubs a
lot of confusion. As a result, the
policy was formed much too quickly (not a recommended procedure)
and did not get to the mailboxes until Oct. 8. Lesson learned: haste
makes waste. We'll know better
next time.
2.) As far as input from clubs, the
groups affected the most were consulted.
3.) The accusation that the policy
emanated from myself is also inac
curate. Policy making decisions are
always made by a committee. As
SUB commissioner I was obliged to
submit the committee reports to
SAC and to send memos to the
clubs. Hence my signature appeared
on the memos. I find it laughable to
hear that I was nowhere to be seen
on Oct. 9 because I was "trying to
get votes anywhere else." I can
vividly remember spending a good
part of the day discussing the policy
with numerous club people.
I am not trying to condone the
way the situation was handled. To
say the least, it was a frustrating experience and I sincerely hope it
doesn't happen that way again. My
thanks to those who found the time
to come and discuss the issue with
me and my apologies to those clubs
who were inconvenienced.

LSAT confirms all students' worst nightmares
By CHARLOTTE OLSEN
Had any good anxiety attacks
lately? If not and if you would like
to discover your stress threshold, I
can recommend the Law School
Admission Test. Recently I voluntarily subjected myself to this incredible experience — at least I
think I did — it could have been a
bad dream. So, if you breezed
through the trauma of registration
without needing therapy and if you
want something that will keep you
on nerve pills for six weeks, here's
what you can expect from the
LSAT.
( freestyle)
First of all, you have to understand that there are several golden
rules which you must religiously
follow if you are to build your anxiety up to the appropriate level. If
you don't follow these rules, you're
going to spoil half the fun.
Rule one. This rule is the most
important of all. You must listen to
every rumor and horror story and
you must accept them as absolute
truth. These are the stories lovingly
discussed by students hoping to go
to law school, and are easy to recognize so you will have no problem
deciding which stories to believe.
They usually deal with admission
requirements of various law
schools, the scores of other candidates on the Law School Admission
Test, and the reactions of candidates during the test.
In case you haven't heard any of
these stories yet, I'll get you started
on your collection: one eastern uni
versity requires a score of 700 out of
800 on the LSAT and straight A's
from Harvard undergraduate
courses, another one has 3,000 applicants each year and accepts 70,
still another may accept you if your
LSAT score and average are less
than terrific but only if your grandfather and father are included in the
picture of those who arranged Confederation. Every candidate who
has ever been accepted to a law
school has scored at least 7S6 on the
LSAT, has had a 95 per cent average and has led a Samaritan's life.
The stories about the test itself
are even better: did you hear about
the candidate disqualified for sneezing? Or the one who cracked under
pressure, stood on his desk and
sang "Taps"? Of course, none of
these stories are actual fact but you
must listen to them and remember
them in detail if you are going to
raise your anxiety right up there for
the big day..
Rule two. This is easier to follow.
You must not under any circumstances have a good night's sleep
the night before the exam. You
don't want to be rosy cheeked and
rested for the test do you? Of
course not, that would defeat your
whole purpose.
There are two ways you can ensure that you will follow rule two.
You can party the night before, telling yourself that a party will help
relax you. This will ensure that you
have the Bolivian army doing manoeuvres in your head the next day.
Or you can go to bed early, set three
alarms, and spend the next eight
hours subconsciously waiting for
the clocks to stop ticking. If you are
really serious about this you will
also get up at least three times dur
ing the night to check that you really have set the alarms. Now you can
be certain that your eyes will sting
and your body will ache throughout
the entire exam.
Rule three. Register for the
LSAT as a walk-in, or stand-by,
candidate. If you have done the
logical thing and registered for the
test ahead of time and are assured
of a place, you're not playing by the
rules. If you have registered in advance, the only thing you can do is
hope that the Law School Admission Services will mess up and forget to send you your admission
ticket. This won't guarantee as
much anxiety as standing by but at
least it creates some stress.
Stand-by candidates get to do all
the nerve-shattering stuff: they get
to line up from 7:30 a.m. waiting
for a stand-by ticket. They have to
memorize the faces of everyone else
in the line in case there is any line
jumping. And they are entitled to
speculate about the chances of getting into the exam.
Once the stand-by tickets are
handed out, you are escorted to
Hebb theatre and are allowed to
join all the students who were silly
enough to preregister. Now you all
get to wait while candidates are admitted to the examination room.
This takes more than an hour. The
LSAT was to begin at 8:30 a.m.; it
won't start until 9:30.
The next three rules are to be followed to the letter during the actual
test.
Rule four. Under no circumstances must you remain calm. In
this, the people administering the
test will give you plenty of aid. First
of all, there is a no smoking section
so that will help the smokers main
tain the required level of nervousness. Non-smokers are out of luck.
Secondly, the bells in Hebb are
not disconnected. This is a great device for damaging nerves. Twice an
hour a sharp, piercing alarm will
ring just to shake you up a little. As
well, the administrator will remind
you at the beginning of each section
of the test exactly how little time
you have to complete that section,
and no, if you have extra time left
you cannot check your work on any
other section.
Three or four proctors walk
around the room watching the candidates. These people aren't going
to make you the least bit nervous
unless you convince yourself that
when they are standing behind you
they are actually reading your answers and sniggering at your stupidity. Paranoia helps.
Rule five. About a third of the
way through the exam, remind
yourself that the rest of your life
depends on how well you do. Think
about the fact that there is no other
future for you if you blow the test.
It's a good idea to do this during the
data interpretation section whle you
are trying to concentrate on the factors and assumptions involved in a
park ranger's decision of where to
build an outhouse in a campground. This trick really worked
for me. I was amazed at how panic
stricken I felt when I realized that
my future may depend on where
somebody put an outhouse.
Rule six. The last rule is a game.
It's called Find the experimental
section." If you have purchased
any of the books which tell you how
to write the LSAT you will know
that the test contains one experimental section which is not included
in your score. (You have to believe
this up to the second portion of rule
six, because until then it falls into
the rumor category.)
The trick to the first half of rule
six is to figure out which section is
the throwaway one. Hopefully, it's
that one you completely failed to
comprehend. More likely, it's the
one you answered with no problem.
Just about the time you have decided which section is the experimental one, you must put the second half of rule six into effect. That
is, you have to realize that although
the how-to books told you that
there is an experimental section,
they probably didn't tell those computers in Pennsylvania who mark
your test. The other good thing to
remember at this point is that American computers probably don't
speak the same kind of English that
we do.
If you follow all the above rules I
guarantee that at the end of the four
hour exam you will be able to say
that you know what anxiety is. The
exciting thing is that it doesn't end
with the end of the test. Results do
not arrive until five or six weeks
later and here's the reason you will
be swallowing nerve pills: you get
to spend the next six weeks wondering whether you put your name and
registration number on the answer
sheet. You lucky dog.

No contraceptives, no food aid-Kurt
By KURT PREINSPERGER
The desperate misery of most of
humanity today is for many of us a
serious emotional burden. Dozens
of foreign aid groups bank on our
urge to help and solicit donations,
often through dramatic magazine
and television ads. To give or not to
give, that is the question — and
while our compassion suggests a
ready answer, our reason may remain troubled. Is it not madness to
ship food to overpopulated coun-
and we have a moral duty to cut off
aid.
But billions of people are starving
now; surely, not to save as many as
possible would violate the fundamental human right to life? I would
not want to sacrifice the human
right to life or undermine respect
for it, and I feel morally obligated
to prevent needless deaths. What I
would contend, however, is that if
one must choose between an action
which will delay the starvation of a
perspectives
tries which are unwilling or unable
to enforce birth control?
There seem to be three main
grounds why many people, religious
believers and humanists alike, reject
the idea of tying food aid to birth
control: that this would interfere
with another nation's right to self-
determination; that it would unjustly force a weaker nation to accept
our own ideas of what is good for
it; and that it would violate the right
to life of the starving. Tempting as
our humanitarian feelings make it
to agree with such arguments, we
should first consider how sound
they really are.
If every nation has a right to self-
determination, why should other
nations have the right to interfere
with our affairs by asking us to give
them food and other assistance,
while we are not supposed to have
the right to interfere with their affairs by asking them to practise
birth control?
Either a nation's right to self-determination is absolute, or it is not.
If it is, then other nations have no
right to demand a benefit from us;
if it is not, then we can successfully
argue that it is not part of a nation's
right to have a larger population
than it can support without becoming a burden on the rest of the
world. Birth control, I shall argue,
is the least we must ask for our food
aid, because there is convincing reason to think that food aid without
birth control will only cause populations to escalate.
To say that imposing our own reform ideas on weaker nations is unjust and exploitive strikes me, in
this case, as absurd; the only reform
idea we want to impose on other nations is for them to see the necessity
for immediate birth control.
First, it is in the interest of over-
populated countries themselves to
curb population growth; and second, their irresponsible breeding
habits are irresponsible not just
from our point of view. If it is better for children never to be born
than to starve to death, it must be
morally wrong for any nation, no
matter how exotic its culture, to
bring children into the world for
whom it has no food (to say nothing
of education and other resources essential for humans to develop their
potential). If a nation is unwilling
to accept the need for birth control
— if it continues to produce more
children than it can feed, house and
educate — then, in a very real sense,
it is a nation of child murderers,

billion people and cause the later
starvation of three billion, and an
omission which permits the starvation of a billion people right away,
the second course is morally less repugnant. The right to life, while
clearly giving a person the right not
to be killed, does not give him an
absolute right to be kept alive at any
price, when doing so would bring
about the death of many more people.
Any candid observer can judge
beyond reasonable doubt that if we
want to prevent human death and
suffering, food aid to overpopulated countries without effective birth
control programs will defeat our
purpose. There is a limit, ill-defined
but real, to the capacity of land to
sustain human life, and the population of many countries has already
overshot this limit. Without foreign
help, populations would soon decrease to a sustainable level; with
outside help, however, they grow
far beyond the level which a country can ever hope to sustain — and
when this help dries up, as one day
it must, the population crash which
follows will cost many more lives
than if outside help had never been
given.
I find this a highly convincing argument for tying food aid to population control — an argument confirmed a hundred times in the last
40 years, best perhaps by the green
revolution. It is a sobering thought
for those who expect science to
work miracles and find ways to
double or triple agricultural yields
that this miracle happened in the
1960s. Through plant breeding,
pesticides, irrigation, fertilizers and
the use of machinery, the green revolution managed to multiply the
yields of wheat, rice, maize and
many other crops — with the net result that today an additional billion
impoverished people starve to
death.
There is, of course, no lack of objectors. Humanist philosophers like
Peter Singer argue, for example,
that if we only give enough food aid
to outrace population growth and
I
educational    I since 1938
CENTER "

enough technological aid to allow
the third world*to industrialize, living standards will improve so as to
trigger a "demographic transition." Then there are others, like
Barry Commoner or Buckminster
Fuller, for whom the whole population problem is just a question of
food distribution. Innumerable
lesser minds have accepted this appalling conclusion on their authority.
Perhaps the best reply are brute
facts. More than half of humanity
is already undernourished, but
every single day, the mass of humanity expands by 250,000 additional bodies — a new million every
four days, close to 100 million every
year, doubling in size every 35
years. During our lifetime, 12 to 15
billion people will scramble for survival on our planet and ravage the
ecosystem, completely obliterating
all animal and plant life which does
not directly contribute to food production. Isaac Asimov has calculated that at the present rate of
growth, people will have converted
the earth's entire biomass into human bodies within 450 years; and
according to the Scientific American (Sept. '74), "In less than 1,200
years the human population would
outweigh the earth; in less than
6,000 years the mass of humanity
would form a sphere expanding at
the speed of light."
Anyone who, in the face of such
arithmetic, sticks to the view that
"overpopulation is just a problem
of food distribution" clearly allows
emotional motives to override his
critical intelligence. Whether at the
present moment, with herculean effort, we could possibly feed everyone at a minimal level is irrelevant,
for even if we could, tomorrow we
would have an additional 250,000
mouths to feed. It becomes obvious

Footballers down Bears for first
By JOHN BOYLE
For the second time this season
the UBC football team, has
defeated the number one ranked
University of Alberta Golden
Bears. The 27-23 win Saturday in
Edmonton lifts the 'Birds to a 5-1
record in the Western Intercollegiate Football league and gives
them a four point lead over the second place Golden Bears who are
currently 3-2.
The work of the offensive line
and the specialty teams were major
reasons for the win. Centre Don
Adamic, guards Larry Harbord and
Pieter Vandon Bos, and tackles
Jerry Dobrovolny and George Piva
provided excellent blocking and
kept Alberta from reaching UBC
quarterback Jay Gard. As well Piva
set up the winning points, picking
up a fumble on the Alberta six after
a missed field goal attempt.
The specialty teams shut down
Alberta's    punt    returns    and
recovered a botched punt at the
Bears' 15 to set up UBC's second
touchdown.
All three UBC touchdowns were
scored oy fullback Peter Leclaire on
one, six and one yard runs. Leclaire
and running back Glen Steele combined for 200 of UBC's 287 yards.
UBC coach Frank Smith said
their game plan was to run the ball.
Though UBC's passing game was
used sparingly, crucial completions
on key plays and in surprising first
down situations were effective in
taking the sting out of the Bear's
defence. Gard was nine for 15 while
his late game replacement Sheldon
Petri was zero for one.
- Alberta's passing game was even
less potent than UBC's as the
'Birds' defensive line and backs had
a field day in picking off seven of
Jamie Crawford's passes. Going into the game Crawford was the nation's leading passer. Cornerback
Mark Beecroft tied a club record

Coho Swim Club. The Hyacks
finished first with 98 points followed by UBC with 79 and UVic with
36.
In the men's competition, the
'Birds set two meet records in both
the 200 and 500 metre freestyle
relays. Tyler Cant, a recent U.S.
collegiate transfer was the top male
swimmer for the 'Birds. Team captain Mike Blondal also swam well in
the meet.
In the womens events, UBC had a
strong performance from Ronda
Thomason, formerly of the Hyack
Swim Club, who broke two UBC
club records. Thomason led off the
500 metre freestyle relay in a record
2:07.8 and the 3 by 100 metre butterfly with a record time of 1:06.0.
UBC coach Jack Kelso said he

team's performance in the meet.
Kelso was prompt to point out that
five out of 10 of his team's second
place finishes were within one-tenth
of a second behind the first place
Hyack swimmers.
"I'm very pleased with the way
the whole team swam, especially
when they are breaking records this
early in the season," said Kelso. He
added that Hyack was definitely the
team to beat as they had a large
contingent of swimmers, but his
team will get much stronger as the
season progresses.
Next action for the 'Birds is on
Nov. 6, when they travel to the
University of Washington to compete in the Husky Relays.

with three interceptions while Rob
white, Bernie Glier, Dave Singh and
Greg Kitchen had the other steals.
Smith felt the game was marred
by poor officiating. For example,
UBC were given three pass interference penalties and one delay
of game penalty during Alberta's
last minute scoring drive, Smith
said. UBC were given 144 yards in
penalties to Alberta's 45. The 'Birds
lost close to 100 yards in potential
gains to penalties.
UBC's next game is Saturday in
Winnipeg against the University of
Manitoba Bisons where a win could
clinch first place. The 'Birds beat
Manitoba 27-1 earlier in the season
but do not expect such an easy
outing this time as Manitoba is still
fighting for the last playoff spot.

UBC RUGBY TEAM hosted the UBC Old Boys on Saturday at Thunderbird stadium and came out on short ena
of 28-3 score. The 'Birds put up a hard match and the score does not reflect the evenness of the play. Old Boys are
made up of former UBC players and are current provincial and western Canada champions. More sports on
Thursday, short paper today, ran out of space and my bosses decided that sports should be cut. Complain to
them, not me.
