Vol. LXV, No. 8
Vancouver, B.C. Friday, October8, 1982 ^f^,^
come of age
The sign outside Richmond's Delta River
Inn read, "Happy Birthday, Canada."
It was a rainy 1982 Canada Day weekend,
and inside the hotel 300 members of a new
political party committed to Western
separatism were discussing ways of pulling
B.C. out of confederation.
But members of the Western Canada Concept party seemed not to care about the
irony. They had important matters to
discuss, including a new constitution for the
Western Canada Concept party B.C., leadership and future political action.
The three-day convention made it clear the
Western separatist movement has grown into
more than merely a fringe group capitalizing
on Western alienation. No longer is it composed of different factions hostile to one
B.C. university students may be paying
the full cost of their education if the
Western Canada Concept party gains
power in B.C.
Tenure and sabbatical leave for professors may be abolished, standard attire
for teachers required, and teacher union
membership made voluntary.
At the party's June convention in Richmond, numerous proposals regarding the
future of B.C.'s education system were
WCC's education policy committee
spokesperson Lila Stanford outlined the
committee's policies to the conference.
They include:
• abolishment of tenure;
• prayer in schools;
• increased trade-school training;
• voluntary union membership
for teachers;
• regulated dress of teachers and
students, if possible;
• stop teaching metrification;
• more emphasis on the private education system.
After her presentation was overwhelmingly accepted by the convention
delegates, Stanford, a B.C. elementary
school teacher, gave more details about
WCC's policies.
Incompetence and wastage in B.C.
schools leads to inflated education costs,
Stanford said. If waste was eliminated,
university students would be able to afford to pay the full cost of their education, she said.
"Students should pay their own way.
You could pay less if it was efficiently
See page 12: MARXISM
The convention also made it clear WCC intends to be another major political party in
Western Canadian politics.
As party members gathered June 25 for
registration and morning prayer they talked
about healing rifts created by the initially
contentious merger between the original
Western Canada Concept party and the
Alberta-based West-Fed Association.
Former West-Fed president Elmer
Knutsen, a guest speaker at the convention,
attributed the party's strength and increased
membership to prime minister Pierre
Trudeau. "It was the 1980 election and the
thought of four or five years of Trudeau rule
and his ideas of Canada that made us drag
out plans (of Western separatism)," he had
said on another occasion.
The anti-Trudeau and anti-Central Canada
sentiment is significant in WCC philosophy.
A woman who identified herself only as
Doreen called WCC "the last hope for us in
the West. We have to cut the ropes and float.
We don't want to sink with a sinking ship."
She said she had just been to England and
liked what Margaret Thatcher was doing.
There was no attempt to deal with
women's rights or minority rights other than
a general call to abolish the human rights
"We don't want to be told what to say,
what to call people," she said.
"The socialists are destroying our way of
life," she said, referring to WCC's views on
the public education system (accompanying
article) and the 1972 provincial NDP government.
Playing the Favorite.
Doreen's vision, and WCC's, involves a
"mini-Canada," that would unite the four
Western provinces. Each would have its own
legislature and senate, and the national
government would be decentralized.
The road to a new Canadian state involves
conquering each Western province individually, said WCC founder Doug Christie.
A lawyer for 12 years, Christie was elected
president of WCC-B.C. during the July
weekend convention.
Christie says he would like to see, in the
first province to elect a WCC government, a
referendum dealing with independance. The
first province to do so would probably be
Alberta, he said. Alberta, with 8,000
members, has the largest WCC membership
of any province, while B.C. has 4,000
members, according to Christie's estimates.
Given WCC's B.C. platform and general
views, how likely is it that the party will
become a viable force, as it has in Alberta?
Internally, WCC still suffers from peoples
of different moral, social?and economic concerns who have joined together merely to advocate less government intervention in their
lives. Almost every member at the convention expressed some horror story about
government encroachment. One hotel lodge
owner said the NDP government in 1975 raised fishing licences in his area, thereby driving
away the main source of his income—the
American tourists from Washington state.
And although not every member agrees
with WCC's fundamentalist aspects, the party's policy statement about a "majority"
believing in a divine God is esentially correct.
WCC is acting as one outlet for people
frustrated with governments, both federal
and provincial. For example, Doug Christie's
campaign poster stated: "If Bill Bennet were
doing his job, . . ."
Gordon Kesler was elected MLA in a spring 1982 by-election held in Alberta's Olds-
Didsbury riding. WCC's future in Alberta
may depend on how the party does in the
Nov. 2 provincial election.
While Christie does not think WCC will
form the government in the next B.C. election, he said his party may hold the balance
of power because WCC appeals to people of
all political persuasions.
WCC's participation in the next election
might take votes away from Social Credit
candidates and help the NDP gain power in
B.C., said Chritie.
"We take from the NDP. We are stealing
their secretaries, campaign workers, and
(Barrett's) scared," added WCC member
Bob Alair.
But Christie's comments are disputed by
UBC political science lecturer Gerry
Kristensen. "They are Tories and Socreds."
Both party president David Bannister and
secretary Florence-Marie Rice are former
Socred activitists.
Social Credit party president Bernie Smith
said while WCC is a "political force," he
thinks it won't have any real impact on provincial politics.
"I can't imagine anyone associating with
separatist movements."
The Socreds will have a better awarness of
WCC's strength after the Nov. 2 provincial
elections in Alberta, says Smith.
NDP provincial secretary Joe Denofreo
says WCC's experience in Saskatchewan—the party received a mere three percent of the vote in the 1982 provincial elec
tion—indicates that "WCC can ride high until election day, but the vote will not
"When it comes down to voting, people
will have to decide whether they want a
separatist state, and whether WCC is the
But "the party of the people," as Christie
describes it, still faces credibility problems
despite gains made in Alberta and to a lesser
extent in B.C.
Despite claims from party members and
executives that WCC is a party for all people,
it is dominated by the right-wing, over-40,
predominantly white members.
The fundamentalist nature of WCC is connected with its political beliefs, and is expounded in a party policy statement. It reads:
"The majority of Western Concept
members believe in a divinely created
mankind. Thus rights are divinely derived,
and may not be questioned or tampered with
by any man or group of men.
"The fundamental rights of each individual are: the right to life, the right to
liberty, the right to property, and the right to
Hence WCC's anti-abortion stance and its
rejection of gun control laws.
Vancouver resident Laurie Ludlow, who
mounted a vigorous but losing battle for
WCC-B.C.'s leadership, was greeted with
heckling and jeers after he said he did not advocate prayer in school.
During a question period for leadership
candidates, one member asked about their
personal lives, alluding that she disapproved
of Trudeau's arrangement with his estranged
wife Margaret. "1 think we need a leader who
has high moral standards, and leads a clean
an proper life," she said. Ludlow is legally
Ludlow got 10 votes for leader.
As the convention progressed, party
members assembled in ad-hoc committees to
discuss major issues, including constitutional
changes, legal reforms, economic policies,
the environment, labour relations and education.
On the final day of the conference, WCC's
stand on certain issues was decided. Committees advocated and members accepted as party policy recommendations for:
• abolition of the human rights commission, deemed an "unecessary" government
• contentious issues, including capital
punishment, to be decided by referendums;
• one official language—English;
• maximum 10 percent income tax;

try were doing what we should, the
Reagan administration would show
some response."
The public holds several illusions
about nuclear war and its survivability, a UBC pharmacology
professor said Monday.
No medical care would be
available to treat serious burns
because most hospitals would be
completely destroyed in a nuclear
explosion, Dr. Thomas Perry told
15 people in Computer Science 200.
In addition, the majority of doctors
and nurses would be killed "just
like everyone else," he said.
Fallout shelters won't provide
protection, he added.
Anyone in a fallout shelter within
three miles of the targeted area
would be crushed or killed due to a
lack of oxygen, Perry said. Within
five miles of the blast, people in
bomb shelters would suffocate, die
from carbon monixide poisoning,
or be cooked alive, Perry said.
Perry said thee is a shelter near
Ottawa which may be safe. Only
high-ranking political officials,
however, would have access to protection but there would not be a
country left to govern anyway, he
If a one megaton nuclear bomb,
the equivalent of one million tons
of TNT, were dropped above Vancouver's city hall, 400,000 people
would be killed outright. Perry
said, while another 300,000 would
be severely injured and would die
within four weeks.
Radioactive fallout would cause
fatal illnesses up to 35 years later,
Perry said. Among the more serious
diseases that would result are liver,
breast, lung and thyroid cancer.
Nuclear war could not be limited
to one specific geographical area,
said Perry. The effects of a nuclear
holocaust would be felt everywhere.
Even if the third world were not hit
by bombs, millions would die
anyway because of starvation.
Underdeveloped countries would
no longer be able to depend on
wheat-exporting countries for their
primary food staple, he added.
Another illusion is that, as prime
minister Pierre Trudeau says, "we
must arm ourselves to the teeth" in
order to catch up with the Soviets,
said Perry. "It is simply a lie that
the U.S.S.R. is way ahead of us,"
he said.
"Canada should be the one to
make the first move towards disarmament," said Perry, "if ourcoun-
The Ubyssey mistakenly reported
Tuesday that student senator Lisa
Hebert said as many as 6,000
students will have to drop out of
university if the provincial government doesn't approve grants soon.
Hebert only said there had been
6,000 applicants.

Vander Zalm eludes grant queries
Education minister Bill Vander
Zalm dodged questions in the
legislature on delays in student
grant funds again Thursday.
Vander Zalm said increased
numbers of applicants created
delays and have strained funds.
But NDP education critic Gary
Lauk charged the Social Credit
government with crass political
manouvering which could jeopardize the education of students who
can't otherwise afford to go to
In response to accusations by
deputy universities minister Walter
Stewart made Tuesday, that the
federal government is holding up
grant disbursements, Lauk said
B.C. is the only province yet to pay
grant portions of the financial aid
"Thousands of B.C.'s students at
universities are suffering hardship
because this government has decided to welch on its commitment,"
said Lauk.
"Only in B.C. and only under
Social Credit government is this acceptable public policy," said Lauk.
The federal government supports
student aid in B.C. with $39 million
in loan money. The B.C. government allocated $16.9 million in
grants but Stewart told students
and faculty at UBC that the program is $5 million short because of
increased applicants.
In the legislature, Vander Zalm
said funds would not be released
until the total number of applicants
can be determined and all information collected.
A $5 million shortfall in grant
funds   means   that   unless    more
money is added to the program
students will face on average a 25
per cent reduction on their student
At UBC one in four students is
affected by the delay in grant funds.
At a. carefully staged meeting
sponsored by the chemistry department Tuesday, Stewart defended
university and education ministry
inaction by saying the decision will
be made by the cabinet on the advice of the finance ministry.
But student senator Lisa Hebert,
through repeated interruptions
from meeting chair Mel Comisaro,
urged that the decision on grants
not be made in isolation from
Hebert requested a meeting with
universities minister Pat McGeer.
But Stewart said, "it is not up to
him  (McGeer)   to   determine  (the
Discovery Parks are private
research facilities located near
universities so faculty and facilities
can be shared for applied research.
Some faculty also attacked
Stewart for funding applied
research over basic research in the
pure sciences.
Stewart said the funding for basic
research is a federal responsibility
not provincial. He said federal
funds for basic research were adequate to support provincially funded applied research.
The province has only limited
funds said Stewart.
Stewart, in a letter to the universities Council of B.C. last year
outlined how university priorities
would   have   to   change   to   ac
commodate technology and professional programs at the expense of
liberal arts programs.
Stewart told the predominately
science audience, universities don't
have any thing to do with education. The function of a university is
learning for faculty and students."
Stewart said a science policy in
B.C. should reflect the economic
priorities of the province. But he
added the traditional resource based economy would have to expand
to accommodate a steady two per
cent increase in B.C.'s population.
The only other way to deal with
population increase is to make the
living environment intolerable, he
New physical plant uses funding
Construction will begin on a new
$6.5 million physical plant building
if the funds are approved, UBC information officer Jim Banham said
The board of governors received
at their Tuesday meeting design
plans for the new building, Banham
But Alma Mater Society vice-
president Cliff Stewart criticized the
board for proceeding with plans for
the building. "The whole thing is
really screwy, I don't know why
they're doing it," said Stewart.
"I think in light of the cutback
on capital  funds,  it  is a strange
priority for the board to set."
Stewart said construction of a
new building should not be the first
step towards solving physical
plant's space problems. "Perhaps
they (physical plant) should try to
clean up the department before they
put in new buildings."
Banham said a new building is
necessary. "The physical plant is
working in very marginal quarters
at present. This is a badly needed
Permission to proceed with planning for the building came last year
from  the  Universities  Council  of
B.C., said Banham. "We can't get
approval for the money until we get
the architectural drawings," he added.
But Stewart said funding has
already been approved for the project. "My understanding is the provincial treasury board approved
funding for this last year," he said.
In other board business, the B-lot
barn might be saved, said Banham.
"If it can get through a referendum, the university is prepared to

on how the $7.2 million budget cuts

source of funds. The program is

McGeer was originally scheduled
to speak at the chemistry speaker
series on B.C. science policy.
Stewart filled in for McGeer who
had a previous commitment according to Comisaro.
Baby formula kills
Bottle-fed babies in Canada are
more likely to be sick than breastfed
babies, the founder of Infact, a
group concerned with infant formula marketing, said Tuesday.
"Six to eight times as many
children who are bottle-fed go to
hospital in Canada," Robert
Mac Rae told 35 people at a
Graduate Student Centre forum.
MacRae said respiratory diseases
are higher among bottle-fed infants.
"Many native children suffer
acutely (due to the abuse of infant
formula)," he said.
"There are also problems in
depressed areas of the south (of
Canada), including this city."
The infant formula debate gained
prominence a year ago when the
World Health Organization called
for a boycott of Nestle products.
The infant formula controversy
shows the effect of First World
board rooms on the Third World,
MacRae said. He charged the infant
formula industry with marketing
policies responsible for thousands
of infant deaths in the Third World.
Company nurses meet new
mothers,  give  them  free  formula
and convince them to use formula,
MacRae said. But the mothers are
unable to follow the instructions
properly, due to unsanitary conditions, and cannot afford an adequate quantity of formula.
MacRae was part of a five
member panel.
Panelist Godwin Eni, a health
care consultant, said infant formula
should be prescribed by a doctor to
guard against abuse.
"It is groups outside the country
(Nigeria) which will provide the
catalyst (for infant formula
marketing reforms)," Eni said.
Nestle has been boycotted by Infact, church groups and others since
1977. Ten per cent of the population know of the boycott and three
to five per cent of the population
support it, MacRae said.
"If   Nestle   says   we   will   stop
advertising it is not sufficient unless
breast-feeding is advertised," said
Infact does not oppose production of infant formula but pushes
for advertising reforms MacRae
The Ubyssey does not accept
advertising from Nestle.
Students boo Bennett

lose unions, improve economy'
The labor climate in B.C. causes
high technology industry to avoid
development in Discovery parks,
the deputy universities minister
charged Tuesday.
"The private sector companies
run away and hide when they figure
out the labor climate in B.C.,"
Walter Stewart told 100 students
and faculty in Chemistry 250.
But when asked if labor participation on the predominately
business and academic Discovery
Park board of directors would improve the climate, Stewart said the
high tec sector all over the world is
Stewart said the high tec sector is
too competitive to guarantee the
job security which most unions demand.
It could have been called Sod of
Socred — a nice speech but no dirt.
B.C. Socred premier Elill Bennett
was the keynote speaker Wednesday at the sod turning ceremony for
Langara College's new student
union building. But he received a
chilly reception from the 300
students who huddled for shelter
along the edges of Langara's
concrete-bound Main Quadragle.
As the ceremonial party arrived
at the stage, it was greeted by loud
boos and heckling from the
students. The heckling was repeated
when Bennett took his turn at the
speaker's podium.
About 25 students actively voiced
their dissent at the ceremony, bearing picket signs with slogans such as
Shame on You, Cutback College,
Cutback Knowledge, and What Are
Your Priorities, Mr. Bennet?
Said Bennett: "I know by your
signs that many of you out there are
concerned about the number of
dollars that are going to education
in :hese difficult times." But B.C.
colleges have received $277 million
from the provincial government this
year, compared to $247 million last
year, Bennett claimed.
Bennett appealed to the students
to understand that the depressed
economy was mainly to blame for
the state of education. "Obviously,
for some there is never enough, but
it's time to work together to find
solutions," said Bennett.
But students who protested
against Bennett and his government's policies weren't satisfied.
"It's weird. I don't understand
what he's here for in the first place.*
It's kind of out of place," said Dan
Cross, an ex Langara student council vice-president. "He doesn't talk
to anybody — he just leaves,"
Cross said of Bennett's short stay at
the post-ceremony reception.
"He's got a lot of nerve, showing
up where nobody likes him," said
one student protestor.
But not all the students were opposed to Bennett. As the premier
left the stage, one student shook his
hand and told him he was doing a
"great job."
"They're doing the best they can.
It's bad everywhere," said first-year
nursing student Donna Selva. "I
think he's doing a good job."
Several Langara student council
members pointed out the irony of
Bennett's invitation to campus,
given his government's record on
education issues.
Bennett was invited by a three
person council over the summer,
"which doesn't represent the student body," said student council
member Corrine Hunt. "I don't
think it was up to the student society. It wasn't up to us," she said.
Cabinet ministers Peter Hyndman and Bill Vander Zalm were
also invited to the ceremony, but
did not show up.
(RNR/CUP)—The growing nuclear freeze movement apparently
has flopped with one group: American business.
A survey of 845 business leaders reveals a unilateral halt to the
arms race is opposed by an overwhelming majority—from 50 to 80
l>ercent—depending on the size of the business.
The bigger the company, the more likely its chief executive is to
favour nuclear arms. Most executives said a U.S. ban on nuclear
weapons production would invite Soviet aggression, which they see
as the biggest threat to peace.
Three-quarters of those surveyed say they decided the issue in their
own minds long ago and the freeze movement hasn't changed their
opinions. In fact, most viewed the freeze movement with contempt.
"I'm satisfied 1 know my opinions," said one executive. "These
people are stupid." Page 4

Larkin to
leave grads
Graduate studies dean Peter
Larkin has submitted his resignation effective June 30, 1983.
The board of governors accepted
Larkin's resignation at its Tuesday
meeting. Larkin, who has been
graduate studies dean since 1975,
resigned to spend more time in his
role as associate vice president for
Larkin said the duties of the
associate vice president have increased greatly during the past few
years. "There has been an explosion in the amount of research on
campus," he said.
While the government has cut
back funds in many areas, it has increased grants for research by 30
percent per year, Larkin said. UBC
received $45 million per year for
research—twice as much as five
years ago, he said.
An additional $20 million is
allocated to Triumf, a UBC-based
nuclear research facility.
Larkin says Canada must keep up
research to remain a developed
country, or it will end up importing
technological materials. Even now,
less than one percent of the gross
national product is in research, he
said. Larkin said the government is
aiming for one and a half percent,
but still less on research than the
U.S.A. or Germany.
The university administration is
currently setting up an advisory
committee to search for candidates
to replace Larkin.

Lesson #4 "The pour"
There are many theories regarding this particular facet
of the beer mystique. The one we favour builds a beer
head from the bottom. Start by keeping the glass
upright and pouring down the middle until a head
begins to form. Stop, let the foam build, then tilt the
glass to a forty-five degree angle and continue to pour
down the side. As the glass fills, bring it back to the
upright position leaving a head about two fingers tall.
The beer pour is nearly always followed by the ever
popular beer "unpour", an exercise in which many of
you are already well-versed.

New student service head 'a listener'
He believes tenure is an outdated concept, he thinks tuition fees are at a
reasonable level, and he intends to "listen"
to students as much as possible. That's the
Neil Risbrough becomes UBC first vice-
provost of student affairs on January 1.
Currently on sabbatical leave, Rishbrough a
metalurgical professor, was "found" for
the job after a year long university search.
The vice-provost position was created
after Eric Vogt, then vice-president of student and faculty affairs, announced his
resignation in December 1980.
In a January 1981 administrative shuffle,
which student council criticized, the faculty
affairs portfolio was given to academic vice
president Michael Shaw and a new postion
to deal with student affairs, subordinate to
Shaw, was created.
Risbrough does not think the new structure is detrimental to student concerns. The
1981 AMS council had argued that placing
the person in charge of UBC student services one administrative level lower, would
mean a loss of student influence with the
university president and board of governors.
Risbrough doesn't think the new position
will mean lost influence. "I fully expect to
talk directly to the president," he said Sept.
Risbrough says the structure is probably
"just formal for budget reasons." He said
the university president would want to talk
directly to the vice-provost in order to
gauge student opinion on issues.
Risbrough accepted the postion after five
years as director of the engineering
undergraduate core program. "I see it as a
new challenge."
Risbrough said he initially did not want
to accept the posuion, since he was planning to take a year's leave. After the university said it was willing to wait the year, he accepted the job.
Risbrough said he will be spending most
of his time "listening." Informal meetings
rather than structured committees will be
used to gauge student opinion for the administration. "There is no harm in listening
at any time. Listening is by far the most important (part of the job)."
Tuition fees are "not excessive, under
most circumstances," Risbrough says.
But what really concerns Risbrough • is
social and economic barriers preventing
students from attending university, particularly those from B.C.'s interior. In ad
dition, many high schools over or under inflate their marks for students in comparison
with provincial average.
The universities major day care building
is scheduled to close at the end of
December, due to fire regulations. Because
of the large number of mature students, the
university should make day care a prority,
Risbrough said. "You must have a place to
park the car and a place to park the kid."
Risbrough would like to see more student
input on university decisions that only in
directly affected students. "No (university)
committee should be making decisions
unless they know the opinion of students."
The student representative system is not
always the best, says Risbrough. "You need

Representatives rend to act as individuals, rather than echoing the concerns

"I don't think there is anything wrong
with student representation on any university committee. In general, student input
has been above average."
UBC students have always been excluded
from tenure committees, but this doesn't
worry Risbrough, since he says tenure has
outlived its usefulness. "I don't agree with
the concept of tenure," said Risbrough. "I
think it is outmoded."
Ribrough said the original reason for
tenure, that of professors not having to
worry about being fired for putting forward
controversial ideas, does not apply
anymore. "1 don't think that situation exists anymore."

The money will pay the planned

request that they hold tuition fee increases to the 6-5 federal restraint
The Alberta and Nova Scotia
governments answered that it is up
to the post-secondary institutions to
set tuition fees. Manitoba and
Quebec have already frozen fees,
though the Manitoba government
has not said if the freeze will be extended beyond 1982-83. The Yukon
said in its response that it has no
tuition fees because it has no post-
secondary institutions.
No other province responded to
Regan's telex. But Ontario announced Sept. 21 that it would limit
tuition fee increases to five per cent
in 1983-84 under its public sector
wage and price restraint program.

Where are we at with student grants?
The severity of the situation is being totally masked by the confusion
coming out of government offices and the legislature.
The confusion at times seems like so many lies because one arm of the
government says the exact opposite of the other.
Someone must be lying.
Tuesday in Vancouver deputy universities minister Walter Stewart told
students and faculty the federal government was holding up disbursement
of funds.
Thursday education minister Bill Vander Zalm said they were waiting for
more applicants.
Where are we at with student grants?
We students know where we are at. In eight days the deadline to get
grant forms processed and cheques sent out in time for January will pass.
At UBC 6,000 students have applied for grants. That's about one in four.
Many of them will be forced to get emergency funds and deferrals for
housing to survive. Some will have to drop out.
The severity of this situation barely eclipses the fact that nobody can
adequately plan their finances for the year.
Every day the government waits, uncertainty and anxiety grows. The
government should either bite the bullet and announce the 25 per cent cuts
necessary to make up $5 million or they should add more money for funds.
Grant forms should be printed and mailed to students immediately.

Israel policing, but Egypt will not be bullied
Tahseen Basher, Egypt's Ambassador to Canada, came to visit
Vancouver, Friday Sept. 17th.
Upon an invitation from a group of
professors at UBC he gave a public
lecture on Egyptian foreign policy
at present. Then he attended a dinner party given by the Nile-Fraser
Egyptian Canadian Society of B.C.
in which he met with Canadians of
Egyptian origin.
A graduate of Harvard in International Political Economy, Mr.
Basheer held various diplomatic
posts: Egypt's ambassador to the
"Arab League, a member of Egypt's
delegation to UN, an official
spokesman for foreign affairs under
Pres. Nasser, then Sadat's
spokesman for a number of years.
"Lovely city.", he says of Vancouver, 'Is it always sunny?", i say
no and we then change the subject
from the meteorological conditions
of Vancouver to the hot political
climate of the Mideast. "The region
has become a quagmire of international  anarchy,"  he  says of the
Middle East. "Israel is acting as
though it were the policeman of the
area whistling this side to move, the
other to stop. Egypt refuses to be
bullied by anybody. We reject
Begin-Sharon policy. The policy of
Begin and Sharon is to stay in
Lebanon until that country signs a
peace treaty with Israel. This is not
peace, it is dictation and we call on
the U.S. to speak out as a full partner to the peace process."
Basheer is careful to make a
distinction between criticizing
Begin's government and the Israeli
people. The majority of Israelis
now support peace and compromise, he says. The last polls,
taken just two weeks ago, show that
51% of Israelis voted for vacating
the West Bank and Gaza in return
for genuine peace.
"We are sorry and chagrined by
what is happening now in Lebanon.
But sorrow is not enough. Talk is
not enough. We ask for a collective
effort by government and people to
expand the constituency of peace in
Israel and in the Arab world."
What are the prospects now of
Egypt's return to the Arab fold?
Ambassador Basheer explains that
Egypt's signing of a peace treaty
with Israel came as an emotional
shock to the Arabs. They were
angry with the big brother breaking
ranks with the rest of the family.
Then they tried to bribe Egypt with
$5 billion. Well, Egypt refused.
Then recently there have been many
contacts between Egypt and with
the Arab government. Foreign
ministers start visiting Egypt
especially from Morocco and Jordan. But we are not pushing this
process of reconciliation. We want
the Arab world to mature to peace
at its own pace.
What about the Arab summit at
Fez? What does official Egypt think
of it? "Well, we think that the Arab
consensus at Fez is a palpable progress. But when it comes to the
nitty-gritty, Reagan's initiative,
however limited, is a better starter,
a step in the right direction."
A personal friend of, and a
spokesman for late President Sadat,
ambassador Basheer tells of how he
used to advise his late boss on how
to address Western media. Soon
Sadat developed his own personal
style, adds the Ambassador. But the
course of his relations with the late
President did not all the time run
"Sometimes we disagree and
have real fights but there was never
disrespect between us. I liked him."
Almost a year ago president
Sadat was gunned by a group of army men who belonged to an extremist Muslim organization called
Repentance and Flight from Sin.
Sadat was accused of being a deviant from the true Islamic paths
and of being a puppet to an infidel
West which pressured him to sign a
peace agreement with the Jews,
enemies of Allah. How could Sadat
possibly be accused of all these
charges when he was constantly
portrayed in Egypt as the devout
"faithful president?"
Ambassador Basheer explains
that Sadat used religious groups to
combat the influence of Communist
elements especially in Egyptian
universities. But then such groups
grew more influential than expected. They took their religion
seriously. They were not aware they
were being used for a political purpose. Then all of sudden they were
arrested (Sept. 1981) and their
leaders were put in jail. Sadat
unleashed his anger on all and hurt
the religious sensibilities of some
when he once said of a shiekh
(Muslim priest) "I've put the dog in
And the opposition now in
Egypt, how big and effective is it.
Ambassador Basheer says that
the present opposition in Egypt
which rejects Camp David agreement does not reject peace as such.
It rejects Camp David agreement
becuase it does not give the concrete
answer to the homelessness of the
Palestinian people. The opposition
wants self-determination to the
Palestinian right away. Camp
David Agreement delays it five
years. President Mubarak has been
conducting a dialogue with all
elements of the opposition on matters of foreign policy. There will
always be a dialogue, there will
always be differences, he says.
Upon his request, I took the Am
bassador to a Middle East
restaurant on Broadway. The
Lebanese cook recognized the ambassador and shook hands with
him. The ambassador said that he
was sorry for what Lebanon was
going through. "Allah is greater
than all of them, Mr.
Ambassador," the Lebanese cook
says in a resigned tone. Later, the
Ambassador told me that he was
greatly   moved    by   what   the
Lebanese cook said. After all in our
plagued Middle East it is the simple
and little man who bears the brunt,
he said.

Farmworkers win
Thanks to the Canadian Farmworkers Union, the 1982 season has
brought major victories for B.C.
In the spring, the Workers' Com-
-pensation Board announced that
farmworkers will be given compulsory coverage in time for the
1983 season. It is certainly good
news that workers in Canada's third
most dangerous industry will soon
be compensated for work-related
accidents and diseases, and that
preventative measures will be taken
to promote occupational health.
The Board is currently developing new industrial health and safety
regulations which will address the
special working conditions of farmworkers such as their concentrated
exposure to highly toxic pesticides.
The bad news is the year long wait
between the announcement and the
actual coverage. The media has
reported several serious cases of
pesticide poisonings this past summer, some of which required extensive hospitalization. As well, accidents have continued to occur
because vans used to transport
farmworkers to the fields were badly overcrowded and not equipped
with seat belts. The vast majority of
accidents remain unreported and,
until 1983, injuries arising from
them will not be compensated by
the Workers' Compensation Board.
An important victory in the campaign to organize farmworkers was
won this summer when the union
was granted access to resident farmworkers at seven farms by the
labour relations board. Nearly nine
months after an application by the
union, fought tooth and nail by the
growers, the labour relations board
issued the order permitting union
representatives to enter the farmers'
private property and inform the
workers of their right to join the
During the summer, teams of two
organizers visited each of the seven
farms on a regular basis. Despite
threats from the farmers, over the
Course of the summer workers
spoke more and more candidly to
the organizers, the employers were
so determined to keep the union off
their farms that they tried to
obstruct the visits in every conceivable way. They invented
reasons to overhear conversations
(such as fixing nonexistent
refrigerators); they accused
organizers of visiting the farms
looking for wild sex; they attempted
physical intimidation and threatened organizers who persisted.
A third  success  for  the  farm
workers is a change in unemployment income commission regulations. In the past, farmworkers
have had to work 25 consecutive
working days for the same
employer in order for the period of
employment to count for UIC purposes. The regulation was
specifically aimed against farmworkers and had the effect of
bolstering the corrupt farm labour
contractor system. Under the old
system, the only way a farmworker
could be assured of the 25 days was
to work for a contractor.

Studio 58's Jitters less
shaky than Vagabond's
David French's play Jitters has
the potential to survive even the
worst of productions and still come
through a winner.
Jitters follows the humorous
follies of a play's cast from their
rehearsals, through the hectic
hysteria of opening night where
everything that could go wrong
does, to the more dramatic third act
where actors finally reveal their sensitivity and fragility.
By David French
At Studio 58 until Oct. 23
At Vagabond playhouse
until Oct. 24
Jitters opened this week at both
Studio 58 and the Vagabond
playhouse. But where Jon Bryden's
version at Studio 58 proved to be a
fantastic exercise in hysterical comedy, Brian Brown's direction at the
Vagabond failed to make the most
of what could be deemed "sure-fire
Jitters opens with characters
moving    around,    convincingly
delivering their lines. Suddenly a
man stands up in the audience and
bellows "cut!"
It turns out that he is merely an
actor playing director of the play we
have been watching. Or should I say
the play within the play we are watching.
The plot may sound confusing,
but French presents it clearly. Jitters is a play written specifically for
the small stage. The audience, a
sound booth, and fire exit are all
written and utilized in the play.
From a pleasantly surprising
beginning, Bryden's rendition
moves with a fast but certain pace.
Grant West and Maggie Nagle play
the roles of leading man and lady in
their play within the play with conviction and accuracy. But Vagabond's Ivo Cervicek and Frankie
Taylor, inject feelings of uncertainty in their depictions of these
characters. Taylor, in the role of
Jessica Logan, carries herself more
as a housewife than the former
Broadway star Jessica is supposed
to be. Any trait of glamour and
stardom in the character is not evident at all.
in a brilliant Jitters production
With a few small exceptions,
Studio's David Thomson gives a
convicing, entertaining portrayal of
the unfortunate director, always
caught in the middle of his actors'
personal and professional battles.
In the Vagabond production,
Dale Kelly in the same role
dominates powerfully over his stage
cast. His heavy-handedness
dissolves all subtlety and concern
that his character is supposed to
Jitters gives us another glimpse of
the stereotypes we already hold of
show business people. The actors
are conceited, the director
frustrated and the writer insecure
and quite conservative. While much
of this is captured in the Studio 58
production, Vagabond missed the
target miserably. For example,
Patrick Cassidy as the playwright
Robert Ross dresses more like Elton
John than Chris Heyerdahl's portrayal of the writer who dons an
elbow-patched tweed jacket.
But Thomas Hunt as the young
actor, Norma Matheson as the stage
manager, Julia Denholm and Kim
Forkin as stage hands all added
quality to Studio 58's production.
Vagabond's four minor
characters plod through their evening's performance as if they were
unimportant to the play. Many of
their deliveries are weak and
unaudible. When not in
foreground, they appear bored,
consistantly slipping out of role.
But by far, the best performance
of both productions is given by
Michael Vairo as the outlandish
grovelling actor, Phil Mastroakis.
Vairo bleeds the script for every
laugh it contains. Without upstaging anyone, Vairo steals the show.
His interpretation and performance
are enough on their own to make
Studio 58's production worthwhile.
Vagabond's Harv DeRoo,
former teacher of Medieval and
Renaissance English literature at
Simon Fraser University adapts the
role of Phil in a different manner.
De Roo plays Phil as a meek, slight
actor. While his rendition does not
fail completely, the audience misses
many of his better lines due to poor
timing and a relatively restrained
Studio 58 offers three hours of
high energy entertainment that is
funny and satisfying. Actors,
costumes and set all mix together in
a professional and entertaining
Vagabond's performance is
shorter — only two and a half hours
— but seems to drag on much
longer. The cast does not make the
most of the humour that French offers as subtext.

Mazursky's Tempest has
Shakespeare's Tempest outline.
Prospero is now called Phillip,
(John Cassavetes); Ariel has
become Aretha, (Susan Sarandon);
and Caliban is now Calibanos,
(Raul Julia). Miranda and
Frederick, Shakespeare's young
lovers, have escaped without name
changes. Though stripped of their
unearthly powers, characters in
Tempest still fulfill the same functions as the Bard's characters.
The only character who still has a
hint of supernatural powers is
Philip, an architect who leaves New-
York for Greece. The movie opens
with Philip on an unnamed Greek
Island, and the movie then slips into
a flashback that recollects why
Phillip left his job and wife, and
why he took his daughter Miranda
with him to Greece.
Mazursky has written the
character of Phillip as an architect
because the director thinks "architects are really the new magicians. They decide our lives." But
there is nothing truly magical about
Tempest's Phillip. Although Phillip
is not a magician, like
Shakespeare's Prospero, he is given
the magical power of creating
Tempest. He can't do much else ex
cept tell other people how they are
ruining his life, and retaliates by
creating storms.
One is hard-pressed to accept,
much less like, Tempest on any
terms, including its own fanciful,
flippant ones. Mazursky has handled stories involving characters
undergoing a mid-life crisis before,
notably in Blume in Love (1973)
and An Unmarried Woman (1978).
But Tempest is probably the most
gratuitous and unnecessary Mazursky film since Willie and Phil — his
attempt to remake Francois Truffaut's Jules and Jim.
Mazursky not only managed to
botch Truffaut (which isn't surprising), he has also shortchanged
Shakespeare. Mazursky's Tempest
has nowhere near the grace and
wit of another recent movie inspired by a Shakespeare play,
Woody Allen's A Midsummer
Night's Sex Comedy. Even in
Allen's most unwelcome films —
including Stardust Memories —
there is a semblance of coherent
structure and a purpose of construction. Watching Tempest, you
think the movie was put together by
an editor who didn't want to leave
anything in, but would have had no
movie if he had acted on his best instincts.
Shakespeare's Prospero was an
intelligent, aging man coming to
terms with his magical vocation.
Mazursky's Phillip, played by a
brooding John Cassevetes, is
tempermental young boy trapped in
the body of a middle-aged man who
ends up apologizing for everything
at the end as if his complaints had
no validity at all. In fact, all the
characters apologize to each other.
Someone should tell Mazursky that
the apologies should be addressed
directly to the audience.

The play Dylan Bach depicts a
famous modern poet as an ineffectual man doomed to purgatory. The

which is set in purgatory after his
death in 1953.
Dylan Bach
Written  and  performed  by  Leon
at City Stage until Oct. 9
The play is an introspective
dialogue by the character to the audience. He speaks of his life, his
hopes and his pain.
Thomas, as a character on stage,
tells how he dressed to look like an
author, and tells how he thinks
Shakespeare looked like an author
without dressing the part. The
clothing is a symbol: Thomas thinks
Shakespeare is a poet, but thinks he
himself just looks the part.
Thomas says Shakespeare captured all of human experience in his
literature but he can only reiterate
Shakespeare's words.
He recounts his childhood as a
magical time of hope, when heaven
and immortality felt  real.  But  in
reality, he says, life was a crude,
tarnished affair.
Actor Leon Pownall's evocation
of the difference between Thomas'
hopes and his life occupies much of
the play. He reads a letter that
Thomas actually wrote at 19 in
which the poet says he is not a poet
but a trickster with words.
The play ends with Thomas
speaking of masturbation as a fitting symbol of his life. He wanted
to hear the poetic Muse and write to
her. When he could not hear her, he
wrote without inspiration.
Pownall, who plays Thomas, is a
clever actor. With few props, effects, and no gimmickry, he keeps
the audience entertained for an
hour and a half. Pownall also wrote
Dylan Bach.
But the play is extremely wordy,
and is full of many readings of
Thomas' poetry and prose.
However, Pownall breaks the
monotony of merely reading these
works on stage by cleverly contrasting them with vulgar
statements and emotional delivery.
Dylan Bach has no plot. The
recollections of Thomas' life form a
picture of Thomas' personality.
The play is a sordid account of an
ineffectual man. But even if the acting is brilliant, a standing ovation
would be inappropriate.

universe, although that control is
tempered by a greater responsibility
to language than is the case in either

Claude Lelouche's Bolero is one
film during which one must remain
alert throughout the entire picture

constant jumping from one
storyline to another, combined with
jumps in setting and location, may
confuse the average filmgoer if she

The locations and characters are
immensely diverse; the characters
include a ballerina in russia, a German pianist, members of a Paris
follies show, and an American big
band leader. The time span ranges
from 1935 to the present, and the
film follows the saga of all the
characters and their families from
WW II right up to a 1980 Red Cross
benefit concert which includes a
member from each family.
Of the cast, only two members
are immediately recognizable to the
North American public: James
Caan as big band leader Jack Glenn
and Geraldine Chaplin as his wife;
Chaplin reappears later as Caan's
daughter. Lelouche is very fond of
double casting actors as their
characters' children; the multiple
roles work in some cases, but you
could wind up confused if you try
to identify a character with one
Technically, the film is almost
flawless. The best thing about
Bolero is its soundtrack — with
music ranging from classical
(Ravel's Bolero, performed during
the Red Cross concert) to rock
(Francis Lai's Les uns et des autres,
a French song heralding the '80s).
Also, the Dolby Stereo recording
works    wonders    in    this    film.
It is a lot harder to judge the plot.
All the actors handle themselves
well, and Lelouche does a generally
good job of directing, but the way
the story is handled leaves one to

The Chosen
Starring Maximilian Schell and
Rod Steiger
Directed by Jeremy Paul Kagan
Opening today at the Bay
That is not to say that The
Chosen doesn't have a serious, intense subject matter at hand. Two
young Jewish men clash because of
their fathers' beliefs. Danny
Saunder's father is a Hasidic Jew
who rejects contemporary morals
and opposes the creation of a new
Jewish state in the 1940s. Reuven
Malter (Barry Miller) is the son of a
secular writer (Maximilian Schell)
who advocates Zionism and actively
supports the creation of Israel. The
Chosen is about the two men's attempts to balance their friendship
with demands each's father makes.
But like any after school special,
the conflict isn't presented in
anything close to dynamic, much
less believable, terms. Edwin Gordon's screenplay, based on the
novel by Chaim Potok, and Jeremy
Paul  Kagan's lacklustre  direction
doesn't take the characters
anywhere in particular.
The movie is unacceptable from
the beginning because it has a
seriously flawed structure — a first-
person narrative that isn't anything
close to being a first-person narrative. The film begins with a voice-
over, and you're led to believe that
the story is one person's recollection of his past. But the voice you
hear is of Barry Miller as Reuven —
the young man, not an older version
of the same character. When the
same voice-over occurs intermittently during the movie, it jars you
because it seems to occur without
any rhyme or reason.
The father and son speeches are
shot in unforgivably extreme
closeups. Anyone who thinks he or
she is beyond feeling claustrophobic
should try watching Rod Steiger's
heavily bearded face for 10
minutes. When Steiger mumbles
through his performance, you ache
to see something in the frame
besides white hair; but the film
doesn't let you because there is
nothing to look at except Steiger's
Santa Claus face which takes up 50
percent of the screen.
There is an unintentional joke at
the end when Danny (Robby Benson in another earnest but
unbelievable performance) comes
to see Reuven for the last time; he is
clean-shaven, clean-cut, and dons a
suit with a blue vest. It might be the
only time the color blue appears.
But even then you feel like laughing
because Kagan's low-angle camera
captures him as if he were a mafioso
character from the '40s and not a
young man out to discover the
world. It is the only pleasurable moment in the whole film as you
realize what a major miscalculation
Kagan has made.
The Chosen may do for violins
what Chariots of Fire did for synthesizers — give them a bad reputation. Very little in both films is genuinely human or memorable.
There are pretentious affirmations
of principles floating about, as nice
guys pile up and no one gets hurt. A
chosen few must be forgiven if they
see nothing in The Chosen but twiddle twaddle for the potato knish set.
wonder just what the hell all those
characters have in common, other
than being performers in the arts.
And the machinery by which the
characters are intertwined is so implausible that it is almost laughable.
One simply cannot believe such
links are possible.
That's not to say it's a bad
movie; it's certainly better than
most of the current escapist fare.

be well advised to take along a

Raven's show
There's only one word that can
describe the David Raven and the
Escorts concert Oct. 1. Embarrassing. Not only for the audience, but
probably for the band as well.
Less than 150 people attended the
concert in SUB ballroom, the
poor turnout tended to make you
feel as if you were at a poorly attended high school dance.
David Raven and the Escorts
have talent, but they lack the
charisma and originality that's
necessary to draw a large crowd and
establish them as anything more
than a club band.
Raven's career began in Vancouver where he toured clubs with a
band called Python. He then spent
some time in Britain touring with
various bands. Later he returned to
Vancouver, initially touring as a
solo act, but later with his back-up
band the Escorts.
David Raven and the Escorts'
music is fun and the band is capable
of getting people to dance.
However on Friday night the band
lacked the enthusiasm and vitality
needed to get the ballroom rocking.
Raven's music is reminiscent of
Buddy Holly or Chuck Berry, but
really can't be stringently categorized. Most of what they play is
Raven's original material. These
songs are harmless. One can judge
by the titles — including Scrub a
Dub Dub and Hot Love — just how
boring the lyrics are.
The opening bands were the Bing
Jensen Band and Spent Youth. One
song by the Bing Jensen Band called
Video Children featured the lead
singer walking around the stage
with his lips sucked in over his teeth
imitating Pac-man. Spent Youth
was a good dance band that played
a lot of '50s tunes.
Perhaps the saddest thing about
the whole evening was that Romeo
Void was originally scheduled to
play in SUB Oct. 1. This up and
coming San Francisco band played
earlier in September at the Commodore. Romeo Void's concert was
cancelled by AMS concert" promotions because it was felt the band
wouldn't draw a big enough crowd.

VSO concert without personality
Sunday the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra played the tone-
poem Vysehrad by Smetana, the
Dvorak Violin Concerto with
Kyung-Wha Chung, and Stravinsky's Rag-time and his ballet music
Jeu de Cartes. Chung played aggressively and with passion, but the
rest of the concert was like every
other excellent performance of
these works. There were no
distinguishing features, no mark of
It is not that the VSO played badly; no, quite the contrary. The
music was reasonably lively, there
were very few wrong notes, and the
phrasing and dynamics were surprisingly good, especially in the
Smetana piece.
But only 50 years ago every single
performing musician worked hard

to achieve their own individual
voice, their own unique style. Consequently, any listener could in a
moment distinguish between playing of, say, violinists like Heifetz,
Milstein, and Elman; the different
pianistic approaches of Lhevinne,
Paderewski, and Schnabel were obvious; and most people felt very
strongly the differences in conducting styles between Mengelberg,
Toscanini, and Furtwangler.
But art over the last half-century
or so has become increasingly standardized. Walter Benjamin, in his
1936 essay on The Work of Art in
the Age of Mechanical Reproduction, was among the first to notice
this. Essentially Benjamin observed
the cheapening of the unique work
of art through its degradation by
ubiquity, and we have seen exactly
this   process   happening   with  the
widespread dissemination of
phonograph recordings.
How many people now listen to
music as mere background, and
how many now easily recognize the
playing of pianists like Pollini,
Brendel, and Barenboim? And even
if you can, it took you years to
learn, and it's still hard. But the differences between Sergei
Rachmanioff and Mischa Levitzki
were always immediately striking
even to relatively naive listeners.

performers have all but vanished cis

student in every conservatory plays
Paganini's difficult works as a matter of course.
The conductor Arturo Toscanini
shaped much of the other force in
this great homogenization. He
believed that the composer's word
on the printed page was absolute,
and that no performer should do
anything whatever that was not expressly desired by the composer.
Decades later, this currently
unspoken, unchallenged assumption that the only "correct" performance is one that exactly replicates
the printed score, clearly displays
Toscanini's strangling influence on
modern performances. Imagination, individuality, courage,
humanity — none of these count.
What does count now is the ability to paly dexerously, without any
"marring" idiosyncasies, and to get
the notes right, precisely and accurately and in the proper order,
without fail. In this respect the Vancouver Symphony makes the Berlin
or Vienna orchestras of the 1930s
sound like student orchestras; those
old concerts were full of wrong
notes and false starts. Such glaring
errors rarely crop up in VSO concerts these days, so rarely in fact
that when they do they become subjects for long discussion.
So I cannot say that last Sunday's
concert by the VSO was particularly
bad. To be sure, it was a fine concert; so fine that I would have to
work very hard to explain the difference between Akiyama's VSO
and, say, The London Philharmonia. Yes, a very fine concert indeed, and we have the promise of
even better playing in the future.

Even in polite circles, it is now
given that women are raped,
beaten, harassed, and discriminated
against in our society. The causes
and solutions are a constant and
possibly unending source of debate.
The fact remains that it happens.
And it happens on this campus.
But what avenues of redress are
available when it happens between
student and professor?
The simple answer is none. There
is no formal procedure for dealing
with cases of academic sexual harrassment at this university, according to the Alma Mater Society ombudsperson.
Further, for the past two years
there has been no legal representation available to students in any appeal case.
Legal Aid can not participate in
any academic action, because such
cases are civil proceedings. And, as
of 1980, law students cannot repre
sent other students in academic
cases, because the dean of law
decided such activity constituted a
conflict of interest for the potential
So any student who does not
have the personal funds to hire a
lawyer must face the administration
alone. The administration maintains a full-time lawyer who can
council or represent the administration in any academic case.
There are quiet advocates for
such students. In the case of sexual
harrassment, the ombudsperson
will generally refer the case to the
women students' office.
"We can act in any way that will
assure the rights of women
students," said women students'
office director June Lythgoe, "But
we are not in an adversarial role
with the administration. If anybody
in the university got angry, our efficiency could be limited."
Lythgoe  speaks  carefully.  The

Taking on the administration is difficult for any student In cases of sexual
harrassment, the difficulties facing female students may seem
insurmountable.    In the women students' office, there are resources
available to such individuals. Often they seem intangible, but the intangibles
offered by the supportive women that work there, can make the difference.
WSO is a student service, and in
hard times, student services are
often perceived as an emminently
cutable frill by university administrations. While the WSO is in
no immediate danger, theirs is a
tenuous position.
It is also a new one. Until 1978,
the WSO existed as the dean of
women's office. Established in the
1920's, it is the oldest student service on the UBC campus.
With the departure of flamboyant and outspoken dean of
women Margaret Fulton in 1978, a
presidential committee reviewing
student services decided the dean's
office should be converted to a
counselling service for women.
In a minority report submitted to
the committee at that time, Myrne
Nevison, of the faculty of education, objected to the move on the
grounds the dean of women's office
was much more than a counselling
service, that "The encouragement
provided throughout the years to
women was successful primarily
because the head of that office
could speak to the special concerns
of women from a position of
recognized authority, and directly
to top administrators."
The dean of women reported to
the president, or after the commencement of Douglas Kenny's
presidency, one of his vice-
presidents. She attended meetings
of the deans and non-academic
heads, the senate, and represented
the male student population at
university functions and
ceremonies. Lythgoe currently
reports to the vice-provost of student affairs.
The WSO can still be a valuable
resource to women, says WSO
counsellor Nancy Horsman. In the
case of harrassment, they can act as
a "support person" and can aid in
all the special difficulties facing
women on campus.
In cases of violence of any form,
"this is the best place to go,"
Horsman said. They deal with rape,
battering, and child abuse, as well
as the day to day counselling of
what Horsman called "relationship
related problems."
"I have worked in counselling for
a long time, and I've never met a
better group of counsellors," says
Equally important, in Lythgoe's
eyes, is the role the WSO can play in
keeping women's concerns alive
and in the minds of people on this
campus. "So much change depends
on grains of sand. People seem to
think change can happen quickly.
Mary Wollstoncroft died three hundred years ago. We're only going to
be able to affect change bit by bit."
WSO continues its diplomatic activities. These include panel discussions of women's role in society, aid
and assistance to mature returning
female students, essay-writing and
stress management workshops, and
information programs on many
women's concerns.
"There are older people who are
in fact more sensitive than some of
the younger people — these young
women come into school rather
defensive about (women's unequal
position in society). I guess in order
to survive they have to block out a
certain  amount  of external  con
sciousness," Lythgoe says. "I
understand that. I guess they prefer
not to be to bothered by the situation out in the real world."
But the real world tends to encroach. Horsman, after ten years of
counselling, says, "That is why offices like ours have to exist."

Totem raises spirits
How much time does it take to carve a totem pole? Jim Hart
said it took him a year to carve the pole raised at the museum of
anthropology Saturday. A Haida chief who spoke to honour the
event said it took much more than that. Jim Hart, he said,
brought a lifetime of experience and preparation to the task.
In fact he brought an ancient highly stylized artistic tradition to
his carving. It's a heritage that anthropologist Claude Levi-
Strauss compared to that of ancient Greece.
The ceremony confirmed that Indian culture did not die when
Europeans arrived here a little more than a century ago- The
hope of a culture was celebrated on Saturday, not merely the
production of another anthropological curiosity.
Photos from top left: Haida couple, Claude Davidson after
conducting the pole raising, two year old Derek Stephenson,
Haida dancer. Bottom row: Volunteers place the pole. Bottom
right: Jim Hart performs the carvers ritual dance before the
raising. Below: The pole is raised by traditional methods.
