Array 'Gangsterism,' pranks clutter campaign trail
Dave Van Blarcom, arts undergraduate society representative, said Monday he is taking
student board of governors
candidates Gary Moore and Bob
Salkeld to student court for
defacing and ripping down opponents' campaign posters.
And Dick Byl, co-plaintiff in the
court action and campaign
manager for board candidates
Moe Sihota and Herb Dhaliwal
and senate candidate Pam Willis,
said his candidates were the
main victims of the poster attacks.
"That includes, one, ripping
down our posters., and two,
putting theirs up over ours," Byl
Van Blarcom said that in
several buildings Moore's
campaign posters have been
stapled on top of posters of Willis,
Dhaliwal and Sihota.
"I'm not suggesting Gary
personally put those posters up,"
Van Blarcom said. "But I am
suggesting that Gary is
responsible for the actions of his
campaign workers."
Van Blarcom views these
actions as "a very serious issue.
Candidates are discussing issues
which have a direct effect on

ripped down. And at 9 p.m.
Sunday, all of Sihota's,
Dhaliwal's and Willis' posters
were missing from Gage Towers.
Van Blarcom called this "a
vicious strategy" and said the
reason might be that the three
candidates are the strongest
contenders for the position.
The latest campaign sabotage
took place last weekend when
about 200 of Willis' posters were
taken from an office in SUB.

Willis said posters belonging to

shortly after being posted and
replaced by Salkeld's.

lot of people who are very pissed
off about this."

THE REAL THING? Some say these posters on pop machine in SUB advertise the right wing . . . but not us,
oh no! Student elections for board and senate are on today and Wednesday so take time to vote.
Two senate candidates clashed
Monday about the role of the
university in teaching first- and
second-year courses.
At an all-candidates forum in the
SUB conversation pit Gregory
Schwab, engineering 3, said that
a university's main function is to
serve third- and fourth-year
students and graduate students.
First- and second-year students
are still learning the basics and
should go to community colleges,
he said.
Joe Uyesugi, engineering 3, said
that equal importance should be
attached to all students' education.
And, he said, a campus-wide
teaching evaluation survey should
be created to "scare these profs
into actually teaching properly."
Senate candidate Anne
Katrichak, science 4, said she
would "improve quality of
education and teaching" at UBC,
and would like to see registration
Board candidate Moe Sihota,
social work 4, said working conditions for rehabilitation medicine
students are disgusting, and he
would like to see a new rehab
building. He said he wants to help
deeply indebted medical students
and teaching assistants who are
getting "ripped off."
Senate candidate Pam Willis,
arts 4, said tuition fees are the
main issue in the senate election
and the community outside UBC
must be involved in fighting fee
Maureen Peters, nursing 4, said
as a student politician she opposes
fee increases but that she probably
won't be able to do much more than
keep increases to a minimum.
"There should be some continuity
between positions on senate,"
Peters said.
Joe Quarshie, engineering 3, said
the library is not as good as it used
Student job program a mystery
A week after an announcement by the
provincial government of a program to create
100 part-time jobs for B.C. university students,
no one knows where the jobs will come from.
Education minister Pat McGeer announced
last week 100 students, 11 of them from UBC,
will be able to earn money at career-related
jobs funded by the Canada Student Loan Plan.
But McGeer presented few details of the
work-study program and details are still
UBC awards officer Byron Hender said he
does not yet know what jobs will be available at
UBC, or when.
"There are no government restrictions on the
jobs except that they hope they will be career
related, and that they must be approved by the
unions," Hender said Monday.
He said the two unions affected by the job
program are the Canadian Union of Public
Employees and the Association of University
and College Employees.
But the unions and the UBC employee
relations board have not yet discussed the
implications of the program, according to Bob
Grant, head of employee relations.
But AUCE spokeswoman Fairleight Funston
said the union's main concern is to ensure
students doing clerical jobs will be paid at the
AUCE base rate.
She said no mention of the work-study
program   was   made   to   the   union   during
meetings with the employee relations board,
although it was mentioned two weeks ago by
persons in the UBC awards office.
Hender said the number of UBC students who
will receive money from the program is "not
very significant."
He said 6,500 UBC students had applied for
student aid this year.
Hender also said it will be difficult to
determine the success of the program, even if it
is expanded to include a larger number of
students next year.
"At this point we're having trouble assessing
it because of the lack of information, and I
think the government is too," he said.

to be, and the government should
spent money on improving it instead of building a new teaching
Senate candidate Rob Marris,
grad studies, opposes budget
cutbacks and said faculty are
grossly overpaid. He said he is
concerned that budget cutbacks
will seriously affect TAs, whose
salaries could be reduced. The
university should examine the
possibility of deficit financing to
eliminate future financial difficulties, Marris said.
When asked what he would do if
he found faculty noisy and inattentive at senate meetings,
Marris replied, "I would tell them
to shut the fuck up."
And grad student senate candidate John Russell accused the
administration of taking a weak
stand on budget cutbacks. Russell
said students should consider a
tuition fee strike before bowing to
fee increases.
Russell added that students
should not allow funds for TAs and
special studies groups to be cut
back. "TAs are value for money,"
he said.
Board candidate Basil Peters,
engineering 4, said that the
university should wait until it has
examined all possible sources of
revenue before considering fee
increases. Peters suggested that
research groups might work for
industry to raise extra funds.
"Public opinion of the university
has been deteriorating over the
past few years," Peters said. The
university should embark on a
public relations program, he said.
Bob Goodwin, commerce 2, said
he is opposed to excessive fee increases and differential fees.
Goodwin said he would like to see
an improvement of bus services to
UBC to help alleviate the parking
"The board is being forced into a
position to increase fees up to
$200," said commerce grad student
Gary Moore. Moore said students
should completely oppose fee increases until all available capital
has been collected.
Joanne Clifton, arts 3, said she is
against fee increases and that
visible protests and rallies are the
only way to protest them.
Herb Dhaliwal, commerce 4,
urged students to vote conscientiously and elect someone
with a knowledge of finance and
Ron Joseph, engineering 3, told
students not to believe everything
in The Ubyssey. Joseph said the
newspaper inferred that
engineering candidates were not
concerned with all students.

"At this point we're having
trouble assessing it because of the
lack of information, and I think the
government is too," he said.
Hender said the program would
be judged on "how many people it
ultimately helps, if it's easier for
them to get through their
schooling, if they have less debt
and if they receive any career
benefits from it."
The program was announced in
Victoria after a day-long meeting
between education department
officials and student representatives from colleges and universities across B.C.
At that time, student  reps ex-

reporter arrived. However, in an
interview Thursday Chow said he

pressed doubts about the value of
theprogram and the availability of
jobs within the students' field of
Hender said the program will not
be effective if it results in jobs
already filled by students working
part-time being displaced by work-
study program jobs.
He said this would mean the
program would not increase the
number of jobs available.
Thirty per cent of students at
UBC work part-time, Hender said.
But he did not know how many of
these students had also applied for
student aid.

saying a two-tier tuition system

good idea.

Grievance handling disputed
The UBC administration is
trying to destroy the grievance
procedure set out in its contract
with the university's 1,300 library
and clerical workers, union
spokesman Kevin Grace said
Grace, grievance committee
chairman for the Association of
University and College Employees, local 1, said the administration is trying to make the
grievance procedure unworkable
and force AUCE to renegotiate it.
"The university is seizing on the
issue of time limits as an excuse to
stonewall is ironic in the view of
their own notorious failure to abide
by the contract's time limits."
He said the administration uses
the time limit on grievances to stop
the union from processing
grievances. It blocks the grievance
until the time limit runs out and
then says they cannot be arbitrated, Grace said.
AUCE president Ian Mackenzie
said the administration's attitude
toward grievance procedure could
cause a breakdown in mediated
contract talks currently going on.
"The university has threatened
to make it an issue," Mackenzie
The administration is trying to
impose a five-day limit on the filing
of grievances, he said.
"This would eliminate the vast
majority of grievances before they
can be lodged because many
workers do not realize they can
make a grievance until more than
five days after the incident."
The AUCE contract currently
contains no time limit on the filing
of grievances, Mackenzie said,
although most union contracts do.
One grievance involving  three
workers has been going on for two
years, Grace said. AUCE has
applied three times to the Labor
Relations Board to make the administration  comply   with   the
contract  in  connection  with  the
grievances, he said.
Contract talks are continuing
today with provincial mediator

Women's office

The UBC women's committee
has been granted a new, permanent home in SUB — by the
same group that six months ago
evicted the former women's office
from the building.
The new women's committee,
which will be based in SUB 224 and
288, is planning to introduce itself
and its activities to the campus
during Women's Week, Feb. 9 to 16.
Speakers during the week will
include feminist Germaine Greer,
author of The Female Eunuch, on
Feb. 9, NDP MLA Rosemary
Brown and Ti-Grace Atkinson, a
feminist writer teaching at
Washington State University.
Committee spokeswoman Sheila
Lidwell said other events planned
for the week include films,
workshops, a women's art exhibit
and a coffee house and beer garden.
"It is a week of many interesting
and varied activities designed to
get women involved," Lidwell said

Law students
give Dwor
confidence vote
Law students Friday voted
confidence in their controversial
president Mark Dwor.
At a special meeting, they voted
against a motion that would have
required Dwor to clear all public
statements with the association
before delivering them. They also
overwhelmingly rejected a motion
calling for Dwor to apologize for
statements he made about fierce
competition among law students.
Dwor apologized for the remarks
Controversy erupted when Dwor
told a December meeting of the
Canadian Bar Association that
some law students steal notes and
hide reference books so others
cannot use them. He claimed they
are forced into unhealthy competition because of pressure to get
high marks, caused by the scarcity
of articling positions available to
graduating law students.
The meeting was organized by
students who said Dwor's remarks
had damaged the reputation of the
faculty. They said Dwor should
have presented his allegations
about "cut-throat competition" to
itlie law students association, instead of the bar.
They said Dwor should be censured or impeached, for his
remarks. Dwor's term as LSA
president expires in February.
Dwor told 300 law students that
in his speech to the bar he was
objecting to the amount of pressure
on law students to get good marks.
He said articling positions will
become scarcer when law students
start graduating from the
University of Victoria in 1978. This
will increase the pressure on law
students because the number of job

committee and what we are offering women at UBC," she added.
The student representative has
allotted the committee about $1,500
for its programs this term.
The SRA grant to the committee
followed almost four months of
wrangling between the two groups.
After the SRA evicted the former
women's office from SUB 230
during the summer, about 15
concerned women formed an ad-
hoc women's committee in September.
They argued that discrimination
against women occurs on campus
and said a new women's centre
should be established to provide
information for women at UBC,
and sponsor activities and
programs mainly for women.
However, when the ad-hoc
committee asked for official
committee status so it could gain
space in SUB at a Sept. 29 SRA
Graduate studies is the only
faculty which could muster more
than one student candidate for its
student senate post this year.
Rob Marris and John Russell are
running for the graduate student
More than 2,000 graduate
students are eligible to vote in
elections  today  and  Wednesday.
Marris says he is opposed to
tuition fee increases. "Ultimately
tuition fees should be abolished
The main reason for increasing
tuition fees is high faculty salaries,
he says. "In 1965, 51 per cent of the
university operating budget was
devoted to faculty and staff
salaries, whereas 80 per cent of the
budget is now devoted to faculty
and staff salaries," he said.
Ten years ago there were no
salaries larger than $25,000, and
now administration president
Doug Kenny receives $60,000,
Marris says.
He says he opposes differential
fees for foreign students. "It is a
self-protection move which occurs
in time of duress."
The abolition of tuition fees will
lead to a richer combination of
students from other social and
ethnic backgrounds, he says.
Tenure for professors should be
abolished in favor of a renewable
contract, and students should be
involved   in   the   hiring   process,
Marris says.
Marris says the university
should examine other sources of
revenue, or deficit financing before
it considers increasing tuition fees.

Greer, author of The Female

Her UBC speech was originally

University of Victoria.
Greer's fee was increased to
$2,500 after SFU and UVic decided
not to have her speak at those

until more money becomes
available  from  the   government.
Russell says Kenny has not been
bargaining hard with the government against tuition fees. "On
National Student Day Kenny said
tuition fees were a poor idea — not
a very strong statement itself —
and then the next month he was
talking about a $200 increase in
tuition fees."
Russell says students should not
tolerate lower education quality.
He says teaching assistants
should form a bargaining unit on
campus to get better conditions.
"They are the last people on
campus without a bargaining
Russell adds: "Teaching
assistants are good value for the
money and they are cheaper than
professors and almost as good."
Russell opposes any increase in

He says other sources of revenue
should be examined to pay off the

There aren't many candidates
running in the board and senate
elections today and Wednesday who
are worth talking about — let alone
But there are a few lesser evils.
In an almost marathon staff
meeting Monday, The Ubyssey
stacked up the candidates against
several criteria we think are
important that students elected to
board and senate meet. The criteria
• disclosure and accessibility —
will candidates tell students, and The
Ubyssey, what goes on during both
open and closed sessions? How
accessible and responsive to students
will they be?
• willingness and ability to speak
out and work — will the candidates
have the time and guts to be
effective at meetings and on
committees? Are they likely to be
intimidated by the big names and
positions of other board or senate
• viewpoints and attitudes to the
issues facing students — do
candidates have some kind of
integrated picture of what student
problems and why they are
problems? What kinds of solutions
do they recommend?
When we stacked candidates
against those criteria, about half the
candidates were shutouts — and most
of those who scored at all will never
make an all-star team.
In the board of governors
sweepstakes, only two of the seven
hopefuls are worth mention.
Moe Sihota and Joanne Clifton
got the highest marks there.
Sihota racked up his points for his
eagerness to tell students what he
knows about what has gone on at
UBC and in students' discussions
with     the   • provincial     education

department. From his past record,
he's willing to spend time and energy
at meetings and doing preparatory
research. And he usually has good
ideas about what students might try
to do about the problems.
Clifton's points came from her
association with the Young Socialists
— a group we disagree with on many
points. However, it's about time
there was at least one shit disturber
on the board. And it's likely Clifton
would clue students in about what
the board doesa
Of the nine candidates running
for five senator-at-large positions,
only three earned, in our' humble
estimation, much more than a shut
Pam Willis scored highest for her
forthrightness and energy. If she
spends as much time on senate
committees as she does on the
numerous organizations and
committees she works with now,
she'll be more effective than most
student senators. Like Sihota, with
whom she's worked frequently in the
past, Willis gets marks for her
approach to issues that concern
students, but only part marks until
we're convinced there's some kind of
analysis behind the approach.
Elaine Bernard won points too,
for the same reasons Clifton did. If
we support a shit disturber on the
board, we support one on senate as
Maureen Peters also won points.
We're not convinced that she'll be
terribly effective in terms of letting
students know what goes on at
senate, but she'll probably work hard
and diligently.
And the final score is — students
won't get that hot a deal no matter
who they vote for today and
Wednesday. It's just that some of the
options aren't as evil as the others.

I am writing this letter in
response to the story in Thursday's

That this statement was attributed to Gregory Schwab, who is
also a proponent of differential

you gears who are foreign
I am sick and tired of the

the only group on this campus who
are really involved in things.
If running five candidates with
the mentality of Schwab, marching
out on command and voting them
in, and then patting yourselves on
the backs for showing us how
concerned you engineers are gives
you a feeling of satisfaction — then
you have thicker skulls than I'd
originally given you credit for.

in, as predicted, follow their efforts
to represent us and see how much
they accomplish.

'Young Canada Works'
offers summer jobs
Canadian University Press
OTTAWA — Although the newspaper
advertisements say Young Canada Works is
a summer employment program for
students, officials with the department of
manpower and immigration admit they
don't expect to see many students apply
directly for the $30 million available.
Instead, it will be up to established social
agencies to sponsor a project to be funded by
the government with students paid the
minimum provincial wage and hired
through the existing student manpower
centres in their areas.
Young Canada Works is manpower and
immigration minister Bud Cullen's answer
to the defunct Opportunities for Youth
program which provided money for groups
of students to plan and carry out community
projects during the summer.
Cullen says YCW "will be oriented to the
interests    and    aspirations    of   young
But the national secretary of the National
Unionof Students says: "This (program) is
exactly what students don't want." Dan
O'Connor says students want to be part of a
year-round activity.
"They don't.want a job as a summer fun
thing." O'Connor says the program will only
be useful in giving students "fringe skills."
Young Canada Works was unveiled in a
debate on the throne speech Oct. 21 as part
of a year-round employment program called
Canada Works, costing $200 million. In that
debate Cullen said he hoped to see 21,000
jobs created in the summer program which
"will have many of the same basic features
as the year-round program."
Those features — creating jobs in areas
NEW      HlCt-
t* Be. e$&eras*> ok
not now covered by the private sector
community input in project selection and
allotment of funds in relation to the degree
of unemployment in the area — will also be
part of Young Canada Works.
The summer program will consist of
projects lasting six to 14 weeks with a
federal allocation of not more than $25,000,
and minimum wage salaries for students
ranging from $106 in Ontario to $120 in
Saskatchewan. The deadline for applications to reach regional centres is Feb.
According to the YCW guide to applicants,
the program is designed to "reduce student
summer unemployment by enabling
established organizations to sponsor
generating projects in areas of community
The key description to the kinds of
projects which will be funded is found in the
statement that projects must "provide
worthwhile services or facilities to the
community that do not duplicate or compete
with existing services or facilities."
Criteria contradict
But in a description of what kinds of
projects will not be considered for funding
comes the statement "that projects must
not create a community dependency that
will cease to be responded to at the termination of Young Canada Works funding."
Projects that "create jobs which are over
and above those that would normally exist in
the community" will be considered for
funding, but projects that are of the "same
activity in the same community as a job
creation project that was funded the
previous year" will not be considered.
O'Connor says the list of qualifications
and conditions listed are often contradictory
and are "almost impossible to meet."
He says he suspects that when the final
applications are considered the government
will be forced to loosen the guidelines or be
politically embarrassed by the lack of
funded projects.
Travelling puppet shows and adventure
playgrounds will be the kind of projects
again supported through this kind of
program O'Connor says, because, like the
OFY program, it dies not help in long term
or continuous projects which are needed by
the community but not already there.
Federal NDP MP John Rodriguez is less
critical of Young Canada Works. He says he
N.Y. rags rebuild reality
NEW YORK (LNS)CUP) — On Oct. 30,1975, the body of a 15-
year-old white teenager, Martha Moxley, was discovered in the
exclusive Belle Haven section of Greenwich, Connecticut.
She had been beaten to death with a golf club.
In 1 Ik- seven days thai followed, the New York Times, the New
York Daily News and the New York Posl devoted almost 1.KUU
lines aud nine photographs to her death
In those same seven days, 12 people were murdered in
The Post devoted 85 lines and no photos In four of the 12, and
Ihe News was completely silent about 12 victims The Times
mentioned five of the victims without Ihe photos, while running
front page stories about the sentencing of a Harlem youth lor the
murder of a young white woman in .New York
A New York Daily News feature writer gathered these figures
for an article which appeared in the recent issue of More, a
journalism review.
The article shows how Ihe homicide coverage of the three
major New York dailies is one way the papers restructure
reality along racial lines.
The picture that consistently emerges from the "intellectual
Times." the "conservative News" and the -'liberal Post" the
writer say.s. is that the "blacks and Hispanic* commit crimes
while I heir role as victim.-, is slight Victims are while And the
closer the\ are to Ihe middle-class status of the papers' editors,
the bigger the story."
One example presented in the article concerned the three
papers' coverage of an incident on June 25,1975. On that day, a
32-year-old black man, Philip Wright, was shot to death by two
white New York city policemen.
Of the nine shotf which strock Wright, five were shots in his
back. Anil according In one witness, some nl the shots were fired
after Wright lav on the ground The Guardians' Association, an
organization of blaek members of Ihe New \»rk police department was especially critical about the shots m the hick
Hut in the stories that ran in the News and Times the two days
following the murder the Posl ignored the story completely -
no mention was made of conflicting accounts or of the Guardians' questioning.
Instead, what was prominent in both stones, the article points
out. was the fact Wright had served lime in prison and had a
history of mental illness The opening paragraph quoted police
description of Wright at> a ■■psycho," and almost a third of the
story described alleged injuries lo the officer, although
e>('witnesses said the policemen were never struck by Wight
■TheTimes and News stories are case studies in Ihetendency
of editors and reporters to unqiiestioningly accept the police

should have raised serious question.- about the propriety of

thinks the program will help to "take up the
slack of 30,000 students when that (the OFY
program) was cancelled."
Rodriguez says he hopes this program will
attract more lower income students and he
thinks the program can generate some
necessary projects.
He cited the lack of recreational programs
in his Sudbury area and the difficulty of
getting dramatic arts programs in French
as examples of possible projects. He says he
is dissatisfied with the early closing date for
"I hope to extend that date to the first of
March," he says.
As part of the over-all Canada Works
program Rodriguez says it "sounds sound."
Ottawa student manpower centre
supervisor Brian Curry says he thinks about
120 students will find jobs through the
program in the Ottawa area this summer.
He said the system forcing project
managers (they are the leaders of the
projects and get paid slightly more) to hire
their students through the student manpower centres will make it difficult for
people simply to hire their friends for a
Although there is a provision for individuals to apply for funding, provided they
get letters from local organizations or
agencies stating why they would not sponsor
the project, Curry says bluntly, "You have
to have a sponsor, really."
Few want program
He says although applications have been
available in the main Ottawa centre since
mid-December, only a few students have
problems in publicity for the Young Canada
Works program.
program have been made. That centre
never received any application forms.
Curry says most of his time has been spent
sending the applications out to area social
organizations and groups which he thinks
might take advantage of the money.
He says he thought there was no need to
extend the deadline. Supervisors of projects
for the Eastern Ontario region reported
problems in publicity for the Young Canada
Works program.
They seem to agree with statements made
by a public relations officer for the department who said the main problem is not
difficulties with the program planning but
with the attempts to explain what it was all
about. Criticism of this kind of student
summer employment plan have not just
recently been voiced however.
In an Oct. 13 letter to Cullen, the National
Unionof Students said job creation projects
"should be funded on a long-term basis."
"This (new job projects suggestion)
should not be taken as opposition to
assistance for existing community services,
but rather the suggestion that new
programs must do more than that," the
letter said.
In conclusion the letter, signed by NUS
president Riel Miller, said he hoped it should
be possible for "Canadian students, through
their representative organizations, to make
a useful contribution to the development of
federal employment policies."
In his reply, Cullen "requested that officials of my department contact you to
determine a mutually convenient date when
we might meet."
No such meeting was ever requested by
his officials. None is planned. Page 6

B'ballers break even, drop to 4th
The UBC Thunderbird basketball team split a pair of games with
the University of Victoria Vikings,
dropping back into fourth place in
the Canada West league standings.
The Vikings were just too much
for the 'Birds to cope with as they
were playing without their two
stars, 6' 11" Mike McKay and 6' 9"
Jan Bohn.
McKay missed both weekend
games due to a knee injury he
received Jan. 7 in a game against
the University of Alberta Golden
In Saturday's game the 'Birds
faltered after an incredible late
rally and dropped the game to
Victoria, 62-59.
In the pre-game warmup Bohn's
ankle bothered him so much he
was unable to play. In Friday's
game he turned his ankle late in
the first half, but was still the
'Birds top performer, netting 26
With the loss of Bohn and McKay
the 'Birds were at a distinct height
disadvantage with 6' 4" Ed Lewin
playing at the centre spot and 6' 3"
Rob Cholyk taking Bonn's forward
position. This cost the 'Birds
heavily as the Vikings jumped to a
first half lead 42-27. By three-
quarter time the 'Birds trailed by
17 points.
Then the incredible rally started,
the 'Birds started to hit with un
canny accuracy and in the final
quarter steadily narrowed the gap.
Finally with one minute to go in the
game UBC tied it up 59-59.
Then the comeback ended.
Viking guard Rob Parris potted a
jump shot and centre Chris Hebb
sank a foul shot to clinch the game
for Victoria.
The 'Birds scoring was evenly
distributed all round as the rally
was a real team effort. Lewin was
the high point man with 16 points
while Cholyk netted nine. Jim
Dudderidge led the Viking scorers
with 23 points while Lee Edmondson scored 15.

Waterloo rejects Free Chevron
WATERLOO (CUP) — Students
here have voted in favor of a
campus newspaper funded and
published by their student
federation, but overwhelmingly
rejected reinstatement of the U of
W student paper the federation
shut down last September.
The results of the referendum,
released Friday, means the fight
continues between the federation
and the staff of the Free Chevron,
which has published weekly since
the Chevron was shut down Sept. 24
and two paid staff members fired.
Free Chevron staffers have
declared the referendum results a
fraud and asked students to ignore
the results. The staffers also
charge there were several irregularities with administration of the
referendum, and quotes Brian Iler,
former federation president, and a
Toronto lawyer, as terming the
referendum a "straw vote" on the
grounds that it violates several
sections of the Corporations Act.

press at the meeting might stifle
After the meeting he said he had

Dwor claimed his comments to
the bar were taken out of context
and distorted in news stories.
One of the organizers of the
meeting, James Conrad, law 3,
said the LSA president should be
accountable  to  his   constituency.
"We tried to present the position
that talking so far out on a limb
about cut-throat attitudes went
beyond the bounds oLhis office,"
Conrad said. "The student body
disagreed with this.
"I don't think the students understood the issue well at all," he
said. "They rushed to support him.
They endorsed Mark's understanding of the relationship
between dishonesty and the crush
to get articles,"  Conrad said.
Law student senator Gordon
Funt, law 3, said he was upset
Dwor had made defamatory
statements in an interview after
the December speech. Dwor said in
the interview he would not trust
certain students who had jobs
"further than I could throw them,
whereas some others without jobs I
trusted implicitly."
Funt said Dwor should report
any evidence that he has against
particular students to the law dean
or to senate.
Marion Allen, law 3, said that the
issue of Dwor's remarks to the bar
was "a red herring."
She said Conrad and Funt
drafted impeachment papers in the
fall because Dwor neglected to call
a law students' general meeting.

Dave McLellan, who replaced
former president Shane Roberts
after he was recalled for his
handling of the affair as well as his
general policies and actions, said
the federation considers the results
of the referendum binding.
The federation is now seeking a
court order to evict the Free
Chevron from the Chevron offices

was shut down.
