A Moral Majority
backed statute will
outlaw all abortions
e've got to stop the million and one
half murders a year: the holocaust. — Ken
Vanderhoff, president of Human Life,
Holocaust. The word burns, conjuring up
horrific images of innocent people being led
to slaughter by some inhuman monsters; images of swastikas, jack-boots, bloody graves,
a numbing reminder of our ability to kill. The
word is emotionally charged.
It is a weapon currently being employed by
anti-choice forces in the United States to take
away a woman's right to safe, legal abortion,
even in cases of pregnancy by rape, orincest.
Even if the woman is a girl of 13, even if the
baby will be born with severe deformities, it
must be carried to term.
At the beginning of this year the anti-
choice forces brought in their heaviest artillery yet. Senator Jesse Helms (R-NC) and
Henry Hyde (D-Il) introduced bills to the
senate and the house of representatives which
would guarantee that human life "shall be
deemed to exist from conception." The bills
were worded exactly the same. The Human
Life Statue and Human Life Amendments
are clear in their intent and their impact will
be mammoth.
"It's scary and it's not just this issue, this
is just part of a whole movement?' says Dee-
jah Sherman-Peterson, a National Abortion
Rights Action League organizer in Seattle,
"We got a nasty letter from a 'pro-lifer'
today with gory pictures and covered with
stickers like 'Planned Parenthood is an-
tifamily. This came and it was sent to all the
NARAL groups. I've been in this organization for seven years and my skin is thick, but
that hurt . . . me, a mother with two kids, a
What makes the fight so bitter is that the
stakes are so high. According to Sherman-
Peterson, all contraceptives which act to prevent implantation of a fertilized egg would be
made illegal by the statute. And that includes
the IUD and 35 per cent of birth control pills.
A badly deformed fetus, pregnancy by rape
or incest, would no longer be considered
grounds for abortion. 'Defect' is also
disregarded as a basis for depriving an unborn child of life.
According to Marilyn Knight, a spokesperson for Seattle Planned Parenthood, the
statute will affect the women that need abortions the most. Knight says that women who
can afford to go somewhere else for abortions have always been able to, but women
on low-incomes will be forced to either raise
another child or seek illegal abortions.
"It will outlaw abortion but it won't stop
it. Women will have to go back to back-
alleys and dirty little rooms."
And in Canada. . .
What effect will the-statute have on Canadian women if it passes? Will American women travel north for safe abortions?
According to most health-care representatives in Vancouver, the effects will be minimal.
Meg Hickling, a Planned Parenthood education spokesperson says that American women could not come to Canada to have abortions done here because most hospitals have
residency requirements.
She adds however that women who have
money will always be able to have abortions
even if it means travelling hundreds of miles.
Many Canadian women currently travel to
Washington state for abortions because it is
difficult to have one in the north and interior
of B.C.
"Many middle and upper class parents
whip their children across the border for an
abortion. What might happen (if the HLS
passes) is that local pro-life groups might feel
She adds that the statute seems "mind-
boggling, insane to me."
Faye Cooper, a member of the North
Shore Women's Centre, agrees. "I think psychologically it would give them (anti-choice
groups) a hell of a big stick. But I think it
would have virtually no impact on Canada."
One reason why Cooper says she doubts
that it would be important to Canadians is
that our abortion laws are by no means liberal. There is no easy access to abortions in
Canada, she adds.
"It depends on the hospital, it depends on
the doctor, and it depends on the circumstances. No hospital is obligated to have an
abortion committee. There are anti-choice
boards in place in Victoria, Powell River and
Prince George and many other places in the
She adds that the hospital in Powell River
performed only three abortions last year.
But according to Cooper it would be possible for a Seattle woman to have an abortion
in Canada, although it would be expensive
and difficult. "It's not going to be a snap for
her." According to Laura Lynn Brown of the
VGH surgical day care unit, it would cost an
American woman between $250 and $400 for
an abortion.
Says Cooper: "What the U.S. is proposing
is just a stricter form of Canadian law."
According to Statistics Canada, there were
12,483 therapeutic abortions performed in
B.C. in 1978 and 62,290 nationally that year.
And although there were only figures available for three states, 1,372 abortions of
Canadian women were performed in the
United States in 1978. So that door, open to
women who cannot get abortions in then-
own town or city or why are trying to avoid
scandal, will once again be closed.
But the fear that Canadian politicians
would jump on the bandwagon seems remote. At the moment Canada does not have
the Moral Majority's equal who have access
to wealth and the government's ear. Much of
the work being done on the HLS is being carried out by lobbyists for both sides and the
fight in Canada is at the level of hospital
boards rather than in Parliament.
The abortion issue is just part of a right-
wing campaign to 'put women back in their
place? raging in America. Moral Majority
members not only oppose choice on abortion
but the Equal Rights Amendment and gay
Rights that women's groups and others
have fought so hard for are in danger of disappearing. The unthinkable is being contemplated and Canadians can do little but sit
back and watch.
DEPICTING RESULTS ... of HLS passage. Planned Parenthood urges action.
But Knight adds that it won't be an easily
won fight for the anti-choice groups. Annually more than 30,000 women have
therapeutic abortions in Washington state
where abortion has been legalized for ten
"If people are alarmed enough, and I
think they are, they wouldn't be willing to
give up that right oyer their reproduction
without a fight."
She says that the consequences of the
statute would be "very bad, just the social
upheaval would be enormous."
Barbara Banfield, a lay health worker at
Seattle's Aradia clinic, agrees. "This would
have disastrous effects on us (the clinic)
economically as well as taking away women's
rights to reproduction?' she says adding that
these are personal opinions.
"Right now we're feeling the crunch for
money. If abortion is made illegal, that's
another source of income that will dry up,"
Banfield adds. Aradia currently offers the
lowest rate for abortions in Seattle: $110.
She adds that she doubts whether the
statute will actually pass though the possibility that the right-wing forces will "steam-roll
this thing through" exists.
"A lot of us are feeling paralyzed by
what's happening in this country. But there's
a lot of progressive groups getting organized
in Seattle."
If the statute did pass, Banfield says that
she would forsee a network of doctors going
underground to provide women with services
denied them by the state. Abortion has been
legal in Seattle long enough for doctors to
know how to perform safe operations and
this may counteract fears of a return to the
back alley butchers, she adds.
"Abortion in Seattle is extremely
available. We do so many, there are so many
places that do, I have a hard time believing
that women will accept that."
She says that within the anti-choice
movements there, are many splits and some
members even think outlawing the IUD and
the morning-after pills is "going to far."
According to Sherman-Peterson, 35 per
cent of birth control pills would fall under

the definition of abortificants; contraceptive
methods which work to prevent implantations rather than ovulation or conception.
Some direct results of the statute will be
seen by a jump in mortality rates, more child
abuse, increased numbers of women dying or
contacting crippling infections from unclean,
botched abortions and 300,000 more teenage
pregnancies a year, she adds.
There is also the fear that doctors will have
difficulty knowing whether a woman has had
a spontaneous or induced abortion. Before
abortion was legalized in Washington state,
says Sherman-Peterson, women who went to
hospitals with miscarriages were often
harassed by doctors.
She tells of one woman who was five months pregnant when she miscarried. "The doctors didn't believe it wasn't an abortion.
They surrounded her and kept saying, 'who
did it?' "
"How far are they going to go to investigate a miscarriage which is a euphemism
for a spontaneous abortion?"
According to Ken Vanderhoof, president
of Human Life in Seattle, the leading anti-
choice group, doctors can always tell whether
a woman has had an abortion. "There are all
kinds of positive tests to tell whether a
woman has had a spontaneous or induced
abortion," says Vanderhoff.

However Meg Hickling, education director
of Vancouver's Planned Parenthood, says
Vanderhoff's statements are "very hard to
And Laura Lynn Brown, a counsellor at
Vancouver General Hospital's surgical daycare unit says "for the most part that kind of
evidence isn't apparent." She adds only in
cases where the uterus has been punctured
can doctors clearly distinguish between a
miscarriage and a crude abortion attempt.
The statute will force many women back to
the days of unsafe, often lethal abortions.
"I'm extremely concerned about that,"
Vanderhoff claims. "I'm going to try and
make sure there aren't back street abortionists. They do two things: they destroy the
baby and the mother."
He adds, ironically, "We'll always have
those who will do wrong."
Since no birth control method is 100 per
cent effective, many American women who
otherwise could have chosen abortions,
would be forced to carry their pregnancies to
term. The majority of those women in Seattle
are either teenagers or women on low incomes, according to Marilyn Knight.
Last year more than 8,000 teenagers had
babies in Washington state and only 3,000
gave their children up for adoption, says
Knight. The consequence of the statute
would be to force even more single mothers
onto the welfare rolls, she says.
"The social costs would be enormous.
Nobody likes abortion. No one does it happily. But there's always such things as contraceptive failure and ignorance."
She adds that most of the women who
come to Planned Parenthood for abortion
counselling are poor. Eliminating abortions
"would be a very difficult thing to have to
But Vanderhoff says that he is not concerned about the added social costs. Nor is he
concerned about the added number of unwanted children born to the 30,000 women
who had abortions in Washington last year.
"Abortion is very dangerous to women.
That doesn't mean that I have to say the baby
has to die so the mother will feel good. I want

October 1st, 1964. Berkeley police arrest a
student in front of the University of California campus for illegally distributing political
tracts. The action outrages students, who
spontaneously surround the police car. The
Free Speech Movement is born, heralding a
decade of student protest.
September 28th, 1979. Pin-striped B.C. industrialists join university administrators and
education ministry officials to unveil
Discovery Foundation, which will oversee the
construction of research parks near B.C.'s
three universities. The Corporate Campus is
bom; in B.C., Free Speech is replaced by
Free Enterprise.
A squat grey building four blocks long.
Over the main entrance the words, Discovery
Fair, and on a poster, the Socreds' motto, Industry, Government, University.
The disembodied video image smiled.
"Everyone will benefit from the Discovery

Bell gave us the telephone. We want all of
you to work with us either inside the parks,
or in the industrial future which will flow

Dr. Patrick Lucey McGeer, B.C.'s universities minister among other titles, has had
reason to smile. Like so many in the sixties,
he had a dream; like so few, he is about to see
his realized. For on that sunny September
day two years ago, McGeer married industry
to education. A marriage of convenience,
those in attendance would say, but destined
to last. It also legitimized McGeer's child, the
research park. And while it is unlikely opponents to the union will hold their peace,
McGeer has engineered a virtual coup,
radically altering the nature of university
education in B.C. as critics sputter ineffectually about the complete absence of public
Ross Powell has seen it coming during his
3ix-year tenure as a Simon Fraser student
politician, which included a stint as president
of the National Union of Students (NUS).
"There are a number of trends happening in
the work force and the economy," he said
recently. "Governments are looking for ways
to cut back on funds to universities — it's a
short-term vision they're taking — in favor
of a shift in funding to the corporate sector.
"The research park is really only a souped
up version of the human capital theory that
chances went by when there was lots of
money and no direction. Now it's almost as if
the government is saying, 'Look, you guys
never got together to say what you wanted to
do.* "
Jeff Berg, the resources officer for the
Simon Fraser Student Society, says that today the university is considered "almost a
parasite on society."
"There was a large campaign for com-
was popular in the sixties, but a whole lot less
naive, if you want to use those terms. From a
capitalist, corporationalist view, which is
what the government is reflecting, the training that took place then was not geared
specifically to corporate needs. It was wild
and unplanned. So, there was all this cheap
labor, but it was trained to do things that
weren't jobs. Now they've taken the old
thesis and tightened it up."
Once, the university was expected to fill a
community need. Today the ideal has been
perverted to mean a university should fill a
corporate need, Powell says. "Now the attitude is, 'Tax dollars are going in, what are
the measurable outputs? Let's measure
those.' If you want to be cynical, a lot of
munity relevance in the sixties, and the
phrase is still being used now, except it means
corporate relevance. Nobody thinks anymore
that education can save the world, that
equality could be achieved if everyone had
education. Today, there's a much more
materialistic sense. Knowledge seems to have
From conversations with five student politicians; including Powell and Berg, a portrait

emerges. Engage any in a talk about education and they eagerly nibble, for there is no
public debate to participate in. They distrust
McGeer's scheme to create a microchip industry in B.C. by preying on a cheap student
labor pool, in effect subsidizing corporate
demands for technological training with tax
With more than 30 years of student affairs
experience between them, their fears carry
much weight, which is unfortunate, for their
fears, if realized, are truly horrific. They all
say they feel the new corporate role in education will reduce students to the level of a
commodity; a body taught a limited function
at university and then placed on the job market at a pre-set price.
"People are being sucked into the labor
market," says Patti Gibson, an SFU arts
student and a former NUS fieldworker.
"People are in no way in control of their labor. Many say, 'I want to believe in what I'm
doing. I'm not looking. I'm not seeing. I
don't want to know what's going on around
me.' Where they're at is securing a job, securing a future. For the most part, people are
shuffled in to get the skills and then get the
job they've selected in a field where they have
already decided they have no control over.
Yet, ultimately, it's their labor that's being
dealt with."
Gene Long, a UBC student and another
long-time student organizer, says the campus
is providing a model of the very job conditions students will face in the jobs created by
the technological revolution. Lonely,
alienated and frustrated in a restrictive
university environment, they graduate to fill
posts where they work in isolation while
pecking at some impersonal visual display
terminal keyboard.
"The pressures are on students," says
Berg. "The attitude is that every student is
some form of commodity. It's a perception
of your career as a commodity, so you go into hock in these early years as an investment
in your career. They look scared, much more
fearful, much more conformist. If that does
prevail, and people don't see what kind of
power they have, it will get worse. It's a matter of student self-preservation."
For eight years, CoL Robin Bourne was
Canada's top security official. Now he's
working for Victoria. Who is he and what is
he doing there?
The door to Room 336 was as nondescript
as any in the government building in
Ottawa's Laurier Ave. West. In fact, there
was nothing to distinguish Room 336 from
the others at all. Except the room was conspicuously not listed in the lobby directory.
Room 336 was a room with an outward
anonymity that suited Col. Robin Bourne.
For eight years, from 1971 to 1979, Bourne
would leave his comfortable home on
Parkhurst Blvd. to command the intrigue
that lay beyond his office's plain door. He
was head of the solicitor general's police and
security planning and analysis branch. Hidden within that title was the fact that Bourne
was Canada's top security official.
But the secrecy Bourne may have craved
was not completely possible. Astonishing
revelations of RCMP wrong-doing in the
middle of the decade provoked more questions from reporters and opposition MPs
than ever before. Many of them centered on
the clandestine nature of Bourne's group. To
the Trudeau government's embarassment, a
blacklist of civil servants prepared by the
Bourne group somehow became public. One
person mentioned in the list successfully
launched libel actions against the government. There were other, equally embarass-
ing, revelations that came from Room 336.
Ten days before the 1979 federal election,
Bourne resigned.
He resurfaced in B.C. earlier this year after
the provincial attorney-general's department
announced Bourne had been hired to fill a
previously created, but still unoccupied, position as assistant deputy minister of policing.
Bourne, 51, will fill a mostly administrative
function, handling the province's dealings
with municipal police forces, contract
negotiations with the federal government for
RCMP services, the Coordinated Law Enforcement Unit and the B.C. Police Commission.
Bourne's arrival was greeted with hundreds
of yellow "Wanted: To Leave British Columbia" posters adorning tight standards in Vancouver. An NDP MLA distributed the poster
in the legislature. Bourne's Victoria office
bulletin board is decorated with one.
"Top cop a danger to democracy,"
heralds the posters prepared by the Civil
Liberties Action Security Project (CLASP).
"Why is he here? This man has now been appointed to a previously non-existant post in
B.C. He is now responsible for coordinating
the work of all police forces in the province.
What are his functions? Why does B.C. need
this 'security' expert?"
Says MLA Norm Levi (NDP —
Maillardville-Coquitlam) of Bourne's appointment: "If there is a form of paranoia
among people like me there is good reason
for it."
"Bourne is not an aberration," said one
member of CLASP who has been doing
research on Bourne's career. "He was merely
part of the country's national security
system. Our position is that Bourne
shouldn't be here because of his checkered
Bourne himself has always winced at media
suggestions he was Canada's James Bond, or
a civilian "super-dooper-snooper." Yet his
position made him privy to some of the spectacular excesses of Canada's national security
system. From handling intelligence information obtained illegally by unknown sources;
to creating files on MPs, civil servants and
trade unionists; to passing secret information
to industrialists and the CIA, a look at what
Col. Robin Bourne was in the 1970s is a look
at that system and its apparently wonton
disregard for civil liberties.
The Promotion
"To try to achieve an objective assessment
and evaluation of the threat to security of
Canadians," the minister told the House of
Commons in impeccable French, "the security planning and research group will consist of
a mixture of the disciplines of sociology,
criminology, psychology, law, the military
and the police."
Things were not going well for Jean-Pierre
Goyer, the solicitor general, this September
afternoon in 1971. All along he planned to
make a statement about this new group, but
always expected it would be done on his
terms, with little opposition and perhaps
some compliments from the other side of the
Commons. Many Canadians felt better
security methods were necessary after the apparently stark confusion in both Ottawa and
Quebec City during the October Crisis. But
now . . . things were not going well.
"The revolutionary phenomenon now exists in many parts of the world — in Europe,
in South America, in Asia, in the United
States and here in Canada . . . The government must be enabled to act rather than react
to these groups."
Goyer took a breath. He probably thought
he had succeeded in diffusing the
opposition's criticism of the new group. Sure
enough, the next day's headlines would be
about the violent revolutionary threat to
Canada and not the angry questions coming
from all three opposition parties.
The accusations of secrecy must have
seemed silly to the Liberal government.
While Goyer was in Europe the previous
month, a Conservative MP had gotten his
hands on a document calling for applications
for regional analysts in the new civilian
security division. He went to the newspapers
with the document, branded the group a
"super snooper" agency for "police
statism." Silly to suggest secrecy, the
Liberals thought, when the job notices were
public ones. In any matter, Goyer had lost
his chance to make an announcement about a
"positive" step in national security.
By the time Goyer admitted its creation,
the group was already composed of three
members, including Col. Robin Bourne; Lt.
Col. Walter Dabros, of the armed forces
security branch; and Staff Sgt. Patrick Banning, formerly of the RCMP.
The Moment
It is Dec. 18, 1970. Cross has just recently
been released, his kidnappers choosing exile
to Cuba. Bourne is offered a new job this
month as head of the civilian security analysis
group. And on this date in Toronto, the office of the leftist community group Praxis
Corporation mysteriously burn down. Praxis
members pick through the ember discover
that dozens of pounds of their files are missing. The matter is given little notice in the
local press.

Canada's SS
Most Canadians don't realize the
scope or size of Canada's internal
security network. Take the RCMP.
Of its 18,000 members, about 1,700
— only a few know the exact
number — are with the always-
secret Security Service. The RCMP
will only release the names of top-
ranking four in the SS, as it is called
by almost everyone except the
public relations department in the
force. Functions, salaries, budgets
and who's being watched is never
divulged. Yet it is estimated that
hundreds of Canadians earn sums
totalling millions of dollars every
year to be informants, the
backbone of the Security Service's
day-to-day surveillance of "subversives."
As well, the Armed Forces,
through the department of national
defence, has a sizeable security
group. So does the external affairs
department and several other
government departments.
Funnelling this bounty of intelligence information is the responsibility of the police and security
planning and analysis branch (see
chart). Both the RCMP Commissioner and the director-general of
the SS can bypass the regular flow
by going directly to the solicitor
general or to the prime minister.
Even in these cases information
may be passed back to the group for
analysis. Its mandate is basically to
collect, analyze and disseminate
security information, although it
was often asked to recommend
security policy and prepare crisis
management plans. In the late '70s,
the group's responsibilities were expanded to include criminal law enforcement policy.
Much of Bourne's influence came
from his involvement with all four
of the government's security committees. Through the solicitor
general he reported to the cabinet
committee on security and intelligence, which is chaired by the
prime minister. He reported directly
to the next one in line, the interdepartmental committee on
security advisory committee and sat
on the intelligence advisory committee. As chair of SAC, Bourne
was senior to the Mounties' security
chief, who was vice-chair.
The Blacklist
On June 15, 1971, Goyer
distributed a letter to five cabinet
ministers, and promised to personally brief prime minister Pierre
Trudeau about a subversive Extra-
Parliamentary Opposition (EPO),
actively planning to bring about
social change by abusing their posi-
tions within the federal
"I have recently received a report
containing information which the
Security Service has accumulated
about the concept of 'Extra-
Parliamentary Opposition' (EPO)
as interpreted by advocates of the
New Left in Canada" the letter
states. "The report also draws attention to the activities of various
persons and groups, some of them
employees of the federal government, who support the EPO concept and who appear to have as
their aim the destruction of existing
political and social structure in
"The EPO concept, in the context of the New Left, does not mean
legitimate pressure group activity
but rather the creation of counter or
parallel institutions within society
but opposed to it and to the electoral process."
The letter ends with a list of 21
civil servants and the recommendation that they be "fully briefed as to
their responsibilities for ensuring
the security of government information and that their activities be
watched with more than normal
For six years the letter remained
secret until the Conservative opposition in the Commons began
badgering the government about a
suspected blacklist. Minister after
minister, including author Goyer,
denied having seen such a blacklist
until the new solicitor general,
Francis Fox, finally admitted that
the document existed. Following
the revelation, the same ministers
who had denied knowledge of a
"blacklist" stumbled over one
another in a rush to admit they
knew of the letter but had never
considered it a blacklist. By that
time, only six of the 21 named were
still working for the federal government.
Said Andrew Wernick, named on
the blacklist and a sociology professor in Ontario by the time of the
revelation: "To argue that there
was a tight conspiracy, a tight network of conspirators operating and
coordinating activities across the
country, is just drivel."
Walter Rudnicki, also listed, and
a former employee with the Central
Housing and Mortgage Corporation, won two civil suits arising
from the blacklist, resulting in a
total of $68,000 in awards.
But even more astonishing was
the realization that the blacklist,
complied by the RCMP Security
Service, was created with information from files taken from the tiny
Praxis Corporation in Toronto during that 1970 fire. In a bizarre twist,
Toronto Sun editor Peter Worthington said he had been given
Praxis documents by two sleezy-
looking characters soon after the
fire and had, "like any good
citizen," turned the files over to the
RCMP. They in turn had difficulty
in explaining why they held on to
stolen property for more than six
In an article titled, "The Praxis
Affair: How Stolen Goods Became
a Cabinet Document," This
Magazine's Ian Adams and
Howard Buchbinder reported that
the "files stolen from the break-in
later resurfaced" in Bourne's office. The scenario they compiled
from sources had a RCMP security
services officer by the name of S.
Schultz, compiling the list after taking information from the files. By
May, 1971, information from the
Praxis files was being used "as
source material along with military
intelligence information for the
Goyer letter."
Bourne has always maintained he
was not responsible for the creation
of the list. "Everyone said it was
my list," Bourne told the Vancouver Sun recently. "But the
names were contained in an RCMP
report which was submitted to my
group and all I did was draw them
up into a list and give it to the
solicitor general. That was my job.
We were worried about documents
being leaked to the press, that kind
of thing."

He adds society must realize that even
though it is much cheaper to have an abortion than raise a child, that sacrifice must be
"We have to address the fact that it is
more expensive to raise a child. Economically
it is cheaper to kill people. I can arrange an
abortion for $125."
The readily available abortions in Seattle,
he says, "encourage that." But now that
congress has suspended medicaid funds for
women wanting abortions, even in cases of
rape or incest, that $125 is going to be an
even greater sacrifice for those women.
The Human Life president also adds that
women act with "less than reasoned
thought" when they decide to have an abortion.
"Pregnancy is a very substantial impactor.
Even when it's totally wanted and planned
it's beautiful but traumatic. I think many
women are put in the position where they
can't tolerate that change in their lives."
Interestingly, Vanderhoff says he believes
that women who- become pregnant must
either deliver their babies at full term or to
the hands of "murderers."
"The reality is that it's not their choice to
have that chud. They have to deliver that
The Human Life Society is also unalterably
opposed to NARAL and Vanderhoff charges
them with having "not a shred of a value
Ml seems that NARAL-bashing is a nationwide occupation for the anti-choice groups.
According to a recent edition of Time magazine, Paul Brown, head of the Life Amendment Political Action Committee made a vicious personal attack on NARAL'S Karen
Brown said, "I hear that Karen claims she
was raped. Well, let me tell you, Karen is not
the most beautiful creature in the world, so
when I hear her say she was raped, my
response is 'You wish' ".
Mulhauser had been raped by two men, at
gunpoint, and both attackers were caught
and convicted. Brown's attack, as head of a
group fighting for the 'morality' of anti-
choice legislation was indicative of the
hypocrisy of the fight.
One of the weapons the anti-choice groups
are using along with exposing the 'immorality' of their opponents, is emotion. They used
such heavily charged words as murder,
holocaust, slaughter, and children instead of
infants. Charges Moral Majority leader
Reverend Jerry Falwell, who held an 'I Love
America' Rally last May in Olympia, Wash.,
"Abortion stands as an indictment of murder
against America for killing unwanted babies.
America has the blood of all those babies on
her hands." Says Vanderhoff sarcastically:
"I'm sure that NARAL is deeply concerned
with the fact that women have a right to kill
their children."
The other weapon that the anti-choice
movement has access to is the government's
ear. When President Ronald Reagan came to
power it was with the backing of the Moral
Majority and other anti-choice groups.
Vanderhoff if confident that their forces will
be able to pass the statute through both
House and Senate. "I have no question
about winning. It's moving very rapidly."
One of the tactics the anti-choice groups
use to convince the public to join their fight is
to show them pictures of aborted fetuses.
"The reality is when people see the results of
the murder of the unborn child . . . they're
becoming horrified. Abortion has always
been outlawed in history because it doesn't
make sense," says Vanderhoff.
A recent federal court of appeal struck
down a provision to the Massachusett legislature requiring a woman to read a detailed
description of her unborn fetus before an
In Washington anti-choice groups are, according to Vanderhoff, "educating" their
state senators through a letter-writing campaign, urging them to vote in favor of the
statute. He adds that the bill will probably be
considered before the fall.
The statute will allow individual states to
declare abortion illegal, overturning its 1973
Supreme Court decision, but specific court
decisions will have to be worked out for
charges, he says.
Human Life claims a subscription list to
their state-wide newsletter of 40,000; has 28
affiliates in Washington state and drew more
than 700 delegates to their last annual convention. Washington state residents have
been the only Americans to vote on the issue
of choice on abortion in 1970 at a state-wide
' referendum and passed a pro-choice ruling.
But Vanderhoff claims the referendum passed with a small majority of 100,000 and says
that majority has now changed its mind.
NARAL's campaign is similar. They also
hope to put pressure on federal representatives through a letter-writing campaign based
on community organization, says Sherman-
She warns that, "unless people are ready
to take action the situation is going to get
worse and worse."
NARAL uses an organizing model where
one woman will invite her friends to a
meeting at her home to discuss the issue of
choice on abortion and what can be done to
defeat the HLS. Already 2,500 people in Oregon have become involved and Washington
state has recently started its organizing.
"The politicians are going to go in the direction of the majority of the voters. Our
viewpoint is that they have to hear from people on our side because we know we're the
majority," she says.
The pro-choice groups work to ensure that
pro-choice politicians remain in power and
anti-choice candidates are defeated.
But the majority of politicians are reluctant to become involved with such a controversial issue, she says. "Most of them are
men who don't give a damn. They just wish
that we'd go away.'' The anti-choice groups
are better organized, better funded and in a
more powerful position at this point, although, says Sherman-Peterson, the majority
of Americans are in favor of choice on abortion.
"It's like Reagan. He wasn't elected by a
landslide: 50 per cent of the population
didn't go to the polls. It's that type of
She says the biggest problem is getting the
women who have had abortions to come out
and fight the statute. "If only those women
who've had abortions would write to their
congresspeople . . . that would impress congress."
Support for groups like NARAL does appear to be growing. According to Sherman-
Peterson, "we get people in their 80s who
write in with donations and say, 'I wish I
could give you more but I'm on social security.' The question is whether enough of those
people are going to come out."
She adds that very few people are hostile
when asked for support. "Very few people
come up to us and say, 'go to hell.' "
NARAL raises funds not only through donations but by holding street fairs where volunteers sell T-shirts, buttons and bags with
pro-choice slogans. Currently the Seattle
NARAL annual budget stands at about
$48,000, says Sherman-Peterson.
"The majority of people are on our side
but they're still hiding in the closet. We're
going to have a real split in this country."
The HLS may well pass because it only has
to have a simple majority in the house and
congress. Once that happens there will be increasing pressure placed on the state legislature to treat charges of abortion like homicide, she says.
"The more conservative states will be hit
the hardest. There will be a lot of pressure on
state legislators to severely punish women
who have abortions."
Says Planned Parenthood's Marilyn
Knight on the question of the HLS passage:
"It depends on how much fear they (the anti-
choice forces) can strike in the hearts of the
congressmen. They have access to the White
House and to social service departments. The
tone of the administration lends itself to giving those people a hearing."
But there is little that Planned Parenthood
can do to stop the passage of the HLS. "We
can ask people to write to their representatives. That's all we've done. That's all we can
do," says Knight.
Another threat is the change in federal funding to Planned Parenthood. Since specific
monies are earmarked for such agencies in
I'm Pro-Choice

the Title 10 grants, and Reagan wants to
replace them with lump sums, there is no
guarantee that the state legislature will have
to provide them with funds. Currently, 50
per cent of Planned Parenthood funds come
from the federal government.
"It (the system of title 10 grants) has worked in the past but how Reagan wants to
eliminate title 10 and give the states lump
sums. A lot of the states would be in very bad
shape if that happened."
But even if the statute passes, Sherman-
Peterson says, NARAL and others will continue to push for choice on abortion. "Even
if we lose, then we're going to keep on fighting. We're looking at the long haul.
"We've tried to point out to people that
they're not going to get a chance to vote directly on this issue. The time for procrastination has passed."
There are reasons to be pessimistic that the
pro-choice groups will win this fight. Recently the U.S. senate labor and human resources
committee approved a bill designed to encourage teenagers to practice "self-
discipline" in their sexuality.
According to Sherman-Peterson, this bill
was proposed to divert funds from groups
like Planned Parenthood. The measure, introduced by arch-conservative Senator Jeremiah Denton (R-Ala.), is intended also to
promote giving children up for adoption as
an alternative to adolescent parenthood.
Denton described it to the senate as a continuing adolescent pregnancy project which
would provide services to other adolescents
to encourage "self-discipline and responsibility in matters of human sexuality," encourage family participation in cases of teenage
pregnancy, promote adoption as an alternative in such cases and provide research and
data collection on family planning programs.
The bill authorizes $30 million for each fis-

a damn about the

cal year through 1984 and has the endorsement of liberals such as Senators Edward
Kennedy (D-Mass.), Thomas Eagleton
The issue of abortion as an alternative to
teenage pregnancy is never mentioned although the bill states, "prevention of adolescent sexual activity and adolescent pregnancy
depends primarily upon developing strong
family values and close family ties."
Recently anti-choice groups were also out
in force to show their displeasure at Reagan's
appointment of Sandra O'Connor to the Supreme Court in early July. The Moral Majority and the National Right-to-Life Committee members threatened that they would
try and block O'Connor's appointment because of her stand on abortion.
"Sandra O'Connor has a consistent and
strong pro-abortion voting record while a
senator in Arizona," said Dr. J. C. Wilkie,
the National Right-to-Life committee's president.
Cal Thomas, Moral Majority vice president, joined Wilkie in his condemnation ot"
O'Connor. Richard Viguerie, Conservative
Digest publisher, charged that Reagan's
choice for the Supreme Court violated his
election promise to appoint judges who "respect traditional family values and the sanctity of innocent human life."
While the anti-choice groups may be unhappy with Reagan's appointment of O'Connor, they have won a small victory in the senate. A U.S. senate subcommittee has been
holding hearings on the HLS since May and
in early June they voted 3 to 2 to approve it.
This is the first step towards validation of the
Critics charge that the hearings were onesided. Knight says the subcommittee's chair,
John East (R-N.C.) refused to let anyone
who was not 'invited' to speak at the meeting
"They really stacked that committee. They
also said it had nothing to do with the issue
of abortion."

president who was not allowed to
testify in his official capacity but
only as an individual.
Fifty national organizations
charged that the hearings were biased and deliberately limited in scope.
Six women who protested at the
hearings were arrested. Finally the
hearings were extended to let all interested parties voice their opinions
on the issue.
But even if the bill does pass
through both houses of congress (it
only needs a simple majority)
groups such as NARAL say it will
be challenged at the Supreme Court
level. The statute would overturn
the 1973 Supreme Court decision in
the Roe vs. Wade case which ruled
that women have a constitutional
right to an abortion for at least the
first six months of pregnancy. According to Knight, 95 per cent of
abortions done in Washington are
done in the first trimester.
The statute would allow states to
pass laws making abortion illegal
once again. Congress would no
longer stand in the way of such legislation and the punishment for the
'crime' would vary from state to

Ultimately the decision will
return to the Supreme Court. That
Sandra O'Connor has been appointed is perhaps a good sign for
the pro-choice groups.
According to right-wing
representatives such as Senator
East, the statute has nothing to do
with the issue of abortion but it is
an administrative matter which
should be left up to the individual
states, although he has publicly
stated his opposition to choice on
the matter.
East said recently on a television
report on the HLS, "in the past
we've stuck to a Jeffersonian principle, leaving it to the state level."
East also stated that the issue is
merely one of definition: "Many
reputable, highly qualified scientists" agreed that life began from
the point of conception, he said,
but failed to mention the SO outraged national groups who demanded
the hearings be opened and the sue
jailed protestors freed.
"I'm troubled with abortion as a
form of birth control. I suppose
ideally one would want to have a
healthy sexuality where abortion
wouldn't be a problem," he continued.
His opponents on the program
included Dr. Halett, the white-
haired president of the 800-member
California Obstetricians Association who recently endorsed a letter
sent to Reagan expressing their opposition to the HLS.
"We're concerned with the
qualify of life," said Halett. "That
prospect (of the HLS) is very
frightening to me." He added that
he too had been through the days
when his patients would die from
septic abortions.
NARAL's Robin Chandler Duke
also charged that making abortions
illegal will not end them. "Making
abortion illegal won't make it go
away. It will only increase misery. It
seems to me a crime to make a baby
have a baby."
(Since abortion became legal in
1973, more than one million
teenagers became pregnant and 38
per cent had abortions.)
Chandler Duke also raised the
issue of public opinion. Knight
charges that it is really only a 'small
core of people' who really oppose
the right to abortion for women.
"All the polls in this country
show that most people in this country are pro-choice." She adds that a
recent survey by her Republican
congress representative found that
out of 17,000 people polled, 82 per
cent opposed banning abortion.
Opponents to the HLS say it is a
case of the "will of the minority attempting to impose its morality on
the majority. Sherman-Peterson
charges that because almost half the
nation refused to vote in the last
election, many politicians are
governing without a clear mandate
on this issue.

Guillermo Manuel Ungo, leader of the Democratic Revolutionary Front
in El Salvador, speaks with Bill Tieleman and Tom Hawthorn
Revolutionary leader
fights out of necessity
He is both a reluctant and unlikely looking revolutionary.
Sitting in the student council
chambers at UBC, wearing a tan
safari suit, loafers and rectangular
metal frame glasses, with a gold
ring, gold pen and gold cigarette
lighter highly, visible, Guillermo
Manuel Ungo, leader of El
Salvador's Democratic Front
(FDR), bears little resemblance to
the stereotypical Che Guevara
revolutionary commonly thought to
populate Central America.
Given Ungo's background,
however, this is no coincidence. His
father, the late Guillermo Ungo, is
well known in El Salvador as a
founder of the Christian
Democratic party movement in the
1960s. Ungo himself is also one of
the best known politicians in the
country. A professor of law at the
University of San Salvador, he was
one of three civilians appointed to a
five-person government junta after
a successful coup in 1979 by reformist army officers ended the dictatorship of General Carlos
Humberto Romero. Ungo was also
the vice presidential running mate
of Jose Napolean Duarte in the ill-
fated 1972 presidential elections
that resulted in a military coup aimed at keeping Duarte and Ungo out
of office. (Currently Duarte, a
Christian Democrat, is president of
the ruling junta.) Ungo, married
with three children, is also leader of
the social democratic National
Revolutionary Movement (MNR), a
vice president in the Socialist International, to which Canada's NDP
belongs, and a former director of
the Jesuit Central American
University's research institute.
In January of 1980, after serving
on the government junta for three
months, Ungo became a revolutionary leader by necessity, not by
choice. In his letter of resignation
from the junta Ungo said that
because of the independent power
of El Salvador's army and wealthy
oligarchy the junta "has only
minimal, and essentially formal,
power. It lacks the capacity to lead
the process of democratization and
social change. Nor can it stop the
development of the various
mechanisms and activities which
run contrary to the objectives of
that process."
Throughout our interview, which
took place in Vancouver in July,
where Ungo was addressing the
federal NDP convention, it was
clear that the FDR leader is not a
dogmatic ideologue but someone
who has turned to armed insurrection as a final resort after attempting to change the government
through non-violent means.
• • *
In El Salvador students have a
long history of involvement in attempts to introduce social reforms
and end the military dictatorships
that, backed by the coffee and cotton plantation owners, have ruled
the country for 50 years. In El
Salvador's last major uprising, the
1932 revolt that saw 30,000 cam-
Spot the

posinos (farm workers) massacred
by the army, students at the University of San Salvador were responsible for publishing an anti-
government newspaper. The editors
of the paper and other student
leaders were executed. On July 30,
1975, a student protest march from
the University to the centre of town
ended when the National Guard
opened fire, killing at least 37
students. Two days later more than
50,000 Salvadorans walked in a procession honoring the dead students.
We asked Ungo about the role of
students in the current attempts to
overthrow the military government.
He pointed out that it was not just
students but all young people who
are leading the guerilla fighting in
the countryside and the other opposition actions.
"You have more than 60 per cent
of the population under 25 years
old," he explained. "And these
people suffer misery, hunger, lack
of jobs, more than other people,
and these people have more ideals,
so every youngster is a suspect.
"Suspected of being a subversive,
of belonging to the mass organizations (that support the opposition),
of having sympathies towards
them, of helping them. You see
not only in the guerilla forces but in
the mass organizations, the trade
union, a lot of students, high school
students, university students and
young people.
"Most of the people killed, with
their heads cut off, every day, art
youngsters, because they're
suspects. And to be a suspect," he
concludes wearily, "is to be killed,
to be dead."
In June the Wall Street Journal
and the Washington Post published
lengthy stories detailing how the
Ronald Reagan administration's
White Paper on El Salvador contains "factual errors, misleading
statements and unresolved ambiguities that raise questions about
the administration's interpretation
of participation by communist
countries in the Salvadoran civil
war," as the Post described it. The
White Paper, released in February
claimed that, "over the past year,
the insurgency in El Salvador has
been progressively transformed into
a textbook case of indirect armed
agression by Communist powers
through Cuba". In the Journal's
story U.S. State Department policy
planner John Glassman, the man
primarily responsible for the White
Paper, acknowledged that there
were "mistakes" and "guessing"
by intelligence analysts, that parts
of it are possibly "misleading" and
"over-embellished" and that arms
shipment figures supposedly drawn
directly from allegedly captured
guerrilla documents were in fact extrapolated. The Post, which did its
own analysis of the documents,
which were handwritten in Spanish,
concluded that many of the White
Paper's translations into English
were faulty.
After examining the documents
purporting to back up the administration's claims, along with
other Captured papers held by the
State Department, the Post concluded that "read together with the
documents released originally, these
others draw a picture that differs in
significant ways from the one in the
White Paper. These documents
portray a guerrilla movement that is
chronically short of arms and
scrounging for more of them."
During a press conference prior
to our interview Ungo described the
U.S. White Paper as "not so
white." We asked him about the
White Paper and what effect its
release and subsequent statements
by members of the Reagan administration have had on media
coverage "There is a total
manipulation of the news regarding
El Salvador," he replied. "For example, the White Paper is good
evidence of that. We think that
most governments understand that
it was just an excuse to justify
American intervention. It's not the
first White Paper the Americans
have produced.
written about the White Paper (the
Post and Journal stories) besides
the manipulation, the half-truths,
the lies and falsifications but the
most important part is what is not
said: What kind of a struggle is going on, who is responsible for that,
what are the main causes of that,
why the people have chosen the
right to insurrection, which is a con-
stitutidhal right, why we are not
"freedom fighters" (in the media),
why there are training camps for
Somoza's people (former
Nicaraguan dictator Anastasio
Somoza's National Guard) in the
United States, which has been proven. It's a big manipulation and
everyone understands that."
We asked if Ungo felt, given U.S.
efforts to influence the media
against the opposition, an accurate
story of the struggle in El Salvador
will eventually come out.
"Well, I hope so," he answered,
"I hope so. But I guess there is a
trauma after Watergate. They don't
want to discover more
Watergates," he says, with a wry
smile. "One is enough. But perhaps
as time goes on and as this warmonger policy fails the truth will
start to come out."
In 1972 there seemed to be signs
that El Salvador's military and
oligarchy were willing to loosen
their grip on control of the country
rather than face the protracted
guerrilla warfare that was going on

"Every time they want to intervene in a country, they produce a
White Paper. They did that in the
Dominican Republic (American
troops invaded in 1965), they did
that in Guatemala (the Central Intelligence Agency financed and aided a successful coup by right wing
exiles in 1954).
"After the lie is demonstrated,
nobody (in the press) comments on
that. So that's when you see the
manipulation. They (the U.S.)
wanted to see our tiny small country
become the first confrontation between East and West. So, nobody
believed that (the White Paper).
"There have been some articles
in neighbouring Guatemala. Three
of the country's legal opposition
parties, the Christian Democrats
(PDC) led by Duarte, the National
Revolutionary Movement (MNR),
of which Ungo was secretary-
general, and the National
Democratic union (UDN), formed a
coalition called the National Opposing Union (UNO) to contest the
election against the military candidate of the official government
party. In a close vote the opposition
coalition lost amid allegations and
strong evidence of electoral fraud
on the part of the government and
army. While the opposition parties
began a challenge to the entire elec
tion, some sympathetic army officers attempted a coup to overthrow the government. The coup,
backed by Duarte, was abortive and
led to his arrest and subsequent
seven year exile, as well as the exile
of many other opposition leaders.
In 1980, after Ungo had left the
new junta because of its inability to
control the army or oligarchy,
Duarte returned to El Salvador to
join the junta and subsequently
become its president. We asked
Ungo how he felt to be fighting someone who was once a close friend
and his running mate in the 1972 attempt to democratize El Salvador.

Heard plavs crusty Cutter
One-eyed visionary dazzles
In a summer movie season filled
with comic book heroes (Superman
and Indiana Jones from Raiders of
the Lost Ark), and pedantic,
rehashed plots (For Your Eyes Only), Ivan Passer's Cutter's Way is a
refreshing find, a film with a sense
of purpose combined with political
and social comments.
That it has taken a European to
see his American characters in a
new and revealing light is itself a
considerable — and pleasurable —
surprise. Milos Forman did it with
his film adaptation of the musical
Hair, and now Ivan Passer has accomplished the same feat with help
from screenwriter Jeffrey Alan
Cutter's Way
Directed by Ivan Passer
Playing at the Ridge until Sept. 23
Cutter's Way contains a sociopolitical commentary within a hazy
framework of a thriller. All the
basic ingredients of the thriller
genre and present: the murder, the
innocent suspect, the intrigue, the
final chase, and more.
But Cutter's Way is also, more
importantly, a superb character
study of two friends, Alex Cutter
(played by John Heard) and
Richard Bone (Jeff Bridges), who
have different goals in life. Cutter's
readiness to make choices and stick

Cutter tries to persuade Bone into

shots to immediately identify with
Cutter has a vision that cannot be
quelched. His physical handicaps
prevent him from carrying out his
schemes, but he remains the overconfident mastermind behind the
blackmailing. But Cutter's Way is
as much about Cutter's attempts to
make Bone seethe extent of corruption surrounding him, as it is about
Bone's ability — or inability — to
share the same vision.
Bone begins as Passer's
Everyman, who goes through life
passively, without seeing nor
understanding the need to destroy
superficial harmony; he's happy
with the state of things. Politically,
Bone has no convictions, and he
doesn't feel angry when he is held as
a suspect in the slaying even when
he knows the murder's identity.
The big movies about the Vietnam war, like Apocalypse Now and
the Deer Hunter, have dealt with
the war in allegories and
metaphors: the meandering journey
up the river into the heart of
darkness and Russian roullete expressed the insanity of war.
None have dealth with the war in

dichotomy of war
by them, and Bone's reluctance to
do the same, provide the film with
its basic strength.
The thing that grabs you about
Cutter's Way is its immediacy and
relevancy — it doesn't use romantic
subplots and entangelents to keep
the viewer interested, and neither
does it complacently or offensively
Passer's technique is economical;
direct. Sometimes, he conveys important information in one-liners
which are never elaborated upon
later. For example, when Cutter
tires to convince Bone about the
unscrupulous methods of the rich,
he says, "I used to be one of them
too," indicating perhaps, Cutter's
But Passer doesn't let you grasp
Cutter's character. Obsession
looms over Cutter's motivations
and actions, which aren't always
clear. Cutter is obsessed to the point
of being insanely erratic.
Yet there is something about Cutter that is impossible to ignore and
fascinating to watch. A feverish
drive sets his quasi-fantasies about
conspiracies and a powerful oil tycoon's involvement in a teenage
murder into the realm of a new
realism. Cutter's Way isn't just
realistic in detail — set in California
— but also in mood. It says much
about the state of American society
in the last decade.
Cutter, a Vietman Vet and am-
pute with a blind eye, is the embodiment of '60s counterculture persona
striving to survive amidst the
hypocrisy that surrounds him.
Physically, Cutter's falling apart.
Mentally, he's the most vita)
character in the movie.
When he hops around the Santa
Monica pier, accusing Bone of
cowardice, he resembles Long John
Silver. Passer doesn't identify with
terms of what lingering effects it has
on American society with the exception of Coming Home. Cutter's
Way hints at the effects, and comes
up with Cutter and Bone (the film's
original title): a dichotomy of the
war experience which has produced
an existentialist, and politically
numb individual.
Cutter's involvement in the war
left him not only handicapped but
bitter. He harbours resentment
towards Bone for not fighting with
him the only time the two were not
together during the course of theii
friendship): "While you were laying
around with the Ivy league, I was
getting my ass shot off," he
He is also sexually impotent, and
he treats his wife brutally at times.
She is an alcoholic who wants to
realize the American dream in her
As Lisa Eichorn plays her, "Mo"
seems continually sad; even her
laugh seems pathetic. In one sense
she is an unwitting victim of
Cutter's anger; her practicality has
no place with Cutter's wild imagination and spirit.
There is a touching scene in the
movie, when Bone and Mo finally
go to bed together: after making
love, Mo asks Bone to stay with her
for the night, yet he leaves as she
lies asleep on the couch, or so he
thinks. As he closes the door, Mo's
eyes open, if only for a second. But
in that split moment, she conveys
the futility and hopelessness that is
destroying her.
Cutter explains his personal
development — and anyone's else's
— in three stages: "First you hate
the United States of America;
(then) you say that there is no God;
and then you say, 'no matter what,
I'm hungry.' Well, I'm fucking
starved!" There is a voracious ap
petite to Cutter's vengeance, and it
gives the movie its drive.
Alex Cutter is intermitently a
maniac, a genius, and a visionary;
at one point, Bone describes
Cutter's obsession with the
murderer as "Alex's fantasy."
A major problem with Cutter's
Way is that there is no development
in the murder subplot or the
murderer's identity. What almost
excuses this omission is that the
plot hinges on Cutter's perception
of who the murderer is.
There are also other problems
with the movie. Ann Dusenberry
appears in the middle of the movie
as Valerie Duran, the murdered
teenager's sister who teams up with
Cutter and Bone to blackmail Cord,
the tycoon. It is never explained
how she becomes part of Cutter and
Bone's inner circle. And just as inexplicably, she disappears from
view, and does not return. Eliot
(who is making a new career start
playing psychopaths; he was one in
Arthur too) and Dusenberry, are
the two stock characters in the
Passer doesn't show corruption
as part of a multiplying progeny,
and is content with having a conglomerate president stand in as a
weak symbol of American corporate power and abuse. Cord's
vife, who overhears Cutter and
Bone's conversations about the
murderer's identity (her husband)
doesn't do anything; she protects
That's as far as the film goes in
depicting the extent of the cover-
up. The subplot, therefore, serves
as a pretext for Passer and Fiskin to
energize the two characters and to
activate the theme of commitment
and choices.
Some of the missing transitions
and poor character developments
may be somewhere on a cutting
room floor. United Artists pulled
the film, originally titled Cutter and
Bone, from distribution earlier this
year and released it after subsequent favorable notices.
What remains of the film, is both
admirable and sufficient. The film
has a wonderful opening: black and
white film of a parade transposes
into colour, as Jack Nitzche's score
builds in the background. Nitzche's
track is very haunting, very melodic
and comes to represent a force of
irony and understatement in the
Cutter's Way is the first movie in
which John Heard has had a chance
to display the full range of his
capabilities. He had some of the
same energy in Head Over Heels,
with Mary Beth Hurt, but the film
wasn't on par with his energy.
In the PBS adaptation of
Hawthorne's The Scarlet Letter, he
played the Rev. Dimsdale as if he
was suffocating more than the
character. In Cutter's Way, he has
the chance to do some excellent
work; his portrait of Cutter strikes
the right note every time. And so
does the movie as a whole, most of
the time, that is.
Trigorin fails
If you are going to go see Tennessee Williams' adaptation of Chekhov's
The Seagull, be sure to read the original text first. That's the only way to
sort the chaff from the wheat in this uneven production of Chekhov's
The Notebook of Trigorin
Based upon Anton Chekhov's The Seagull, an adaptation by Tennessee Williams
Queen Elizabeth Playhouse
The last time Williams was in town he treated us to The Red Devil Battery Sign, a weak effort by anyone's standards and an abysmal flop considering the kind of quality work Williams has produced during his career
as a playwright.
But at least The Red Devil Battery Sign was pure Williams and could
stand on its own as a success or failure. With The Notebook of Trigorin we
have to deal with a beast with two heads that cannot decide if it's
Chekhov's subtle and understated portrait of life in the Russian countryside or an introspective journey deep into the soul of Tennessee Williams
as represented by Trigorin's character.
The play centres around a Russian aristocratic family during their summer sojourn in the country. Irina Arkadin (Patricia Hamilton) is a famous
actress who visits her brother in the country to pester and remind him by
her behavior how selfish and miserly she is especially towards her son, a
Tortured Young Artist whose talents go unrecognized by his mother.
Williams, to give him credit, handles this relationship well, and manages
to condense and distill Chekhov's text well enough so that Irina comes
across as the vain and preening person Chekhov had in mind. Some might
even accuse Williams of misogyny with his harsh portrait of Irina though
there are moments towards the end of the play when she comes across more
Williams wisely spends less time than Chekhov did dealing with Irina's
son Konstantin. Konstantin's struggle to create a new form of art, one
more natural thus less oriented towards technique and form now seems
rather dated.
It is interesting that Williams chose the cynical and wordly Trigorin as
the play's focus and not Konstantin since Williams' statement in the program 'Our theatre must cry out to be heard' strangely echoes many of
Konstantin's pronouncements.
Trigorin (Roland Hewgill) is a man obsessed with perfecting his art to the
point where he always carries a notebook recording the most minute details
of daily life in the hope they may serve as material for some future literary
He is cannibalist and not really a sympathetic character since he observes
life rather than participating in it. When he does participate it is only for
the worse as when he seduces Konstantin's sweetheart Nina, leading her to
believe (mistakenly as it turns out) that she has real acting talent.
But Williams takes Chekhov's character and rather ineffectually grafts
some of his own personality traits onto Trigorin in an effort to create a
dramatic clone of Tennessee Williams.
It doesn't work. Some of Trigorin's speeches could have been better
handled if Williams had jumped up on stage and announced, "this is how I
feel, folks" and proceeded from there.
Instead Trigorin suddenly and unconvincingly informs us via a tortured
confession to his lover Irina, that he is (gasp) bisexual. This is supposed to
expose Trigorin's soul but appears totally gratuitous. These and other obvious instrusions of Williams' pen only detract from what should be an
elegant tragi-comedy. The ending is particularly glaring given Chekhov's
original reserved treatment of Konstantin's suicide. r Friday, September 18,1981

Trio's music
rich, romantic
For their first appearance
together, the Masterpiece Trio with
new cellist Eric Wilson were amazingly assured and confident. The
Sunday afternoon audience at the
Vancouver East Cultural Centre
welcomed the new group warmly.
Wilson, after early studies in his
home town of Winnipeg, attended
the Juilliard school in New York,
and eventually found his way to
Vancouver^ where he now makes
solo appearances and teaches at
Perhaps the most memorable
feature of Wilson's cello playing is
his large, bold sound, which was
shown to have a definite advantage
in the Mendelsson Trio Op. 49.
This essentially dramatic work
received an intense reading, with
Linda Lee Thomas' piano providing strongly emphatic rhythms.
Gwen Thompson, playing the
violin, began to show some true
high-romantic attributes with richly
emotional portamentos, sliding sensually from note to note at well-
chosen moments of excitement.
This, sort of unabashed, romantic, emotional, display is rarely seen
these days, having almost died out
with the great violinists of the last
generation. A few maintain this
tradition, notably Zukerman,
Heifetz, and one or two others, but
the modern fascination with technique to the exclusion of human emotional content has simply gone too
far. And so Thompson's old-school
playing, apparently a new feature
for her, came as a thrilling surprise.
Gerald Stanick joined the trio
with his viola for the Dvorak
Quartet Op. 23, and blended in
perfectly with the romantic ideals of
the Masterpiece Trio. Particularly
exciting was the interplay between
Wilson's cello and Stanick's viola.
The two at times had that perfect
mutual understanding which is absolutely necessary for great
chamber music, rather like the
astonishing play of dolphins,
flashing in high-speed dances, and
always in perfect harmony.
My only real reservation about
the concert was the Haydn Trio No.
18 which opened the concert.
Haydn's music is often humorous,
and especially in his trios. This one
in particular may put some in mind
of Bach in places, and especially in
the final movement with its strange
ornaments and absurd, clattering
phrase endings.
Now Henny Youngman can pull
off a joke with a deadpan face and
make an audience howl, but it is
very difficult to watch three musicians playing such boisterously funny music with such serious expressions. To be fair, Thomas occasionally began to smoke, but each
time she looked at the other players,
she immediately squelched her expression.
Despite this, the music was funny, and there were a few snickers
from the audience, which incidently
was also infected with silly
seriousness. Think of the fun they
Despite Williams' ramblings it is still a basically solid play and it should
be noted that the evening is far from a total loss. The acting is generally
quite good, with Diane D'Aquila as Masha making many scenes
memorable with her realistic portrait of a frustrated woman leading an
empty life. Jim Mezon (Konstantin), is a little tedious in his earnestness.
One of the play's highlights is the set designed by Toni Onley, which,
combined with the Jeffery Dallas' subtle lighting effects makes for a rather
interesting visual presentation. The set changes are also handled well as
stagehands dressed as Russian serfs come on stage quietly humming Russian folk songs. The audience liked this well enough to applaud the stagehands after each change.
But still the question remains: Why tamper with a masterpiece? And why
doesn't Tennessee Williams get off his ass and write a real play?
Ballet co. seeks balance
TRIGORIN . . . deep journey into Williams' soul
MONTREAL — On the evening
of Sept. 13 the National Ballet of
Canada ended its four day visit to
Montreal. A packed house at Place
des Arts in downtown Montreal
rose to its feet as the curtain closed
the final act of the famous Sleeping
On Wednesday, Sept. 23 the curtain will reopen in Vancouver at the
Queen Elizabeth Theatre when the
National Ballet begins a six day
visit. There will be no holiday for
the company before that either because in the intervening 10 days the
company will whirl through Thunder Bay, Victoria and Edmonton.
Just prior to their last Montreal
performance The Ubyssey spoke
with the National Ballet's artistic
director, Alexander Grant. He
would like the company to stay
longer in all of these places, even
says his dream is to play a week in
all of them. But currently outside of
Toronto, only in Vancouver and
Newfoundland can the company
perform a whole week to full
houses, says Grant.
Normally the company only
comes to the west coast once every
two years. Last year they toured the
Maritimes and this year it's our
The National's run in Toronto is
11 weeks split into a spring and a
fall season, almost twice as long as
is spent touring the entire rest of the
country. The fact they can play so
long in Toronto (and that's seven
performances a week) is a credit
both to the National Ballet and to
the Toronto dance audience, according to Grant.
When the National Ballet does
present a program what elements
decide the content of such a program? Balance is the keyword, says
Grant. There must be a proper balance of pieces to give all the artists a
chance to develop and to use the en
tire company. There should be a
balance of contemporary and classical works: a balance of lighthearted
comedy and serious drama. And of
obvious importance is the commercial need to present what the public
According to Grant, the balance
between the old classics like the
Sleeping Beauty and the more contemporary works is especially important for the company's development. The classical works must be
performed to indicate high professional standards and to maintain
them, but new works must be continually added to challenge the company's creativity.
The failing of many modern
dance companies, says Grant, is
often that they expect to be accepted simply because their work is or
iginal while it may lack depth and
technical expertise. The public enjoys the classics because they can
appreciate the excellence. If a contemporary work is good the public
will also recognize it even if they
don't understand it.
Performing the classics prepares
a dancer for more than just classical
dance. The classical training provides a foundation for other dance
forms in the same way that performing Shakespeare gives an actor
a foundation for more contemporary interpretations.
"In classical dance," he says,
"there are fewer roles where males
can develop their talents." He has
attempted to redress some of that
imbalance in his years with the National Ballet.

Choice cut
Denying a woman the right to control her body is to guarantee her inequality. It is to keep her bound, dependent, subject to uncertainty.
The proposed Human Life Statute in the U.S. will not only ban abortion
in all circumstances but will outlaw lUD's and 30 per cent of all birth control
pills. The bill deems that life begins from the point of conception.
Backed by the wealth of the Moral Majority, the statute is the spearhead
of a movement which will see woman pushed out of the workforce and
back into stereotypical roles as wives and mothers.
The movement is led by a few powerful men who believe they must save
women from themselves by making decisions for them. What is so
frightening is their influence with president Ronald Reagan's administration. As Human Life president Ken Vanderhoff puts it, women who decide
to have an abortion," act with less than reasoned thought."
In other words, any woman who wishes not to have a child is crazy. Any
woman who defies the Moral Majority is not thinking clearly and any
woman who has an abortion is a murderer. Men like Vanderhoff are
crusaders, out to save babies, even fertilized eggs, from the 'holocaust.'
And this whole movement comes at a suspiciously convenient time. The
birth rate in both Canada and the United States is falling and has been for
several years. The fertility rate is dropping as more and more women use
contraceptives which allows them to continue their careers and plan births.
For American women, abortion has been legal since 1973 and they have
been greatly freed by having the choice to terminate pregnancy when contraception fails.
But now the economists are worried. An increase in the birth rate would
benefit the economy and if women were forced to leave the labor market
the problem of unemployment would be solved, according to some right-
wing thinkers.
The way to accomplish all this? Keep women in the home with babies.
Force them to bear children conceived through rape, or incest. Force even
children to deliver their babies. Force women to raise children they neither
want nor can afford. Force them to deliver badly deformed babies.
All for the sake of life. And money.
For Canadian women the problem is not much better. As Faye Copper, a
North Shore Women's Centre member, accurately states, the Canadian
law is simply a less radical form of the proposed HLS. Women in Canada
don't have a clear choice on abortion either.
As the recent hospital board elections in Victoria, Langley and Surrey indicate, the mis-named pro-lifers are also very active in Canada. Now is the
time for women to demand choice for a decent, healthy life for they and
their children.

It's a good thing students have representation on
UBC's senate.
Otherwise senate might discuss key issues and
make important decisions affecting the academic
quality of the university without student input. Right
on, eh?
For instance at Wednesday night's meeting, senate
discussed an issue which will have a severe impact on
the university for years to come: massive funding
shortfalls which have caused campus-wide retrenchments.
As administration president Doug Kenny said: "Our
retrenchments were not delusions. They were real.
And they have threatened the whole academic enterprise."
Unfortunately, out of 17 student positions only one
senator had any comment to make throughout the entire discussion.
Even worse, not one student had any intelligent
comment to make throughout the entire discussion.
While faculty and bureaucrats discussed the impact
of funding shortfalls, possible solutions to the problem, and the dangerous implications the financial
crisis has for society as a whole, students sat calmly
and listened.
And didn't say a word.
And then one student boldly opened his mouth. He
informed senate that what the province really needs is
a new university. He said this in the midst of a serious
debate about the most serious crisis the university
After the laughter died down, students did not offer
another word.
This is appalling. Even administrators acknowledge
that quality education at UBC is crumbling. Not
enough teaching assistants have been hired. There is a
campus-wide freeze on all hiring. There is a campus-
wide freeze on the purchase of new equipment. Kenny
is establishing a committee to investigate where cutbacks can be made.
UBC, as we know it, is seriously endangered. We've
got to fight a government attitude which sees post-
secondary education as a low priority. We've got to
organize and make our voices heard.
So it's a good thing students have representation on
UBC's senate.
Otherwise senate might miss a few good laughs.
Biased senators "cover their backs"
A grave and serious atmosphere
prevailed at Wednesday's senate
meeting. This was touched off by
administration president Doug Kenny, who read a statement by board
of governors member H. J. Greenwood to the effect that the university was in dire financial straits.
A shortfall of $7 million exists for
the 1981-82 fiscal year. No reasons
were given by either the Universities
the meeting two weeks ago of the
library committee, of which Stephen Henderson and myself are
student members.
This committee was told that the
library was in a financial crunch
and must cut costs. Despite being
pressed by Stephen and myself to
come up with definite, quick decisions, they proceeded to make a
number  of general  policy  state-
Council of B.C. or the administration for the existence of this shortfall in a period of having to "cut the
fat," but it was interesting to see
the various deans, special interest
representatives and other lobbyists
from the university community trying to cover their backs by either denying that they were in part responsible for the shortfall or by emphasizing the amount they had already cut back.
Being a rather new student senator, I am usually still surprised by
the degree to which the senate tries
to refrain from making any specific
decisions on a particular question.
A prime example of this occurred at
ments, which were then submitted
to the full senate.
On Wednesday, several senate
members asked for the specific recommendations on how to cope with
the library's financial predicament.
Of course there were none, because
all the important decisions which
the committee should have made
were sent off to others for "input"
(a favorite word, that), put out for
further study, tabled, or deferred
until next month.
Some things transpired at the library committee meeting which are
of particular concern to students,
however. One of these was the revelation that copying prices, after re
maining at five cents per copy since
1967, are soon to rise to ten cents
per copy. Also, you elitists who frequent reading rooms on campus are
probably going to be out on the
grass eventually.
The committee leans towards
phasing out reading rooms, but this
was either omitted or downplayed
on Wednesday.
One good point in the committee's favor, though: very little interest was shown in curtailing library
hours as it was thought that this
would be detrimental to students.
Raising copying prices was not
thought to be detrimental to students. (?)
These issues generated the only
heat of Wednesday's senate meeting, nothing being done re the urgent financial situation. Rumors of
a committee somewhere empowered
to investigate the finances were circulated, and requests were made
that non-university people and businessmen be put "onto this committee, but nothing further was accomplished.
A proposal to limit enrollment in
the faculty of applied science to 460
students next year was passed by
senate, but the rest of the meeting
resembled a Soviet poKtburo meeting at which everything was passed
unanimously and nothing contentious was raised.
One thing I have discovered
about the workings of the senate is
that if a contentious issue was raised, it would so quickly be watered
down to a general nothingness that
it is doubtful if it would be remembered at all come next meeting.
(Chris Fulker is one of five student senators-at-large serving on the
UBC senate. Perspectives is a column open to any member of the
UBC community. Although its
main intention is to serve as a
forum for humor, wit, or opinion,
it is now being monopolized as a
bulletin board of reports.)
Tacoma TV on way
During the last week of March and the first week of April, 1981, I circulated a petition asking the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission to approve an application on the part of eight
lower mainland cable TV companies to carry KCPQ-TV from Tacoma,
Washington, which started broadcasting last November.
In the end I was able to obtain almost 1,250 names, well over half of
which came from people at UBC.
On Aug. 12 the CRTC decided to permit the new television station on
local cable systems. If one has a converter, one should be able to receive
KCPQ-TV by Oct. 1, on cable channel 21(H), 25(L) or 26(M), depending
on the particular cable system.
At this time I would like to thank all those who put their names to the
petition and help make the addition of this new TV channel to the choice of
local viewers possible.

library costs
Rapidly rising publication costs
have forced UBC's senate to set priorities for preserving the quality of
the library in the face of cutbacks.
At its Wednesday night meeting,
senate was told "the library is currently reducing book orders and
cancelling subscriptions according
to a contingency plan developed in
a detailed analysis by the library
The senate library committee report said publishing costs are increasing 20 to 25 per cent per annum and several recommendations
have been developed "to help guide
the library through the present and
forthcoming period of difficulty."
Recommendations included:
• Unique copies should take
precedence over duplicate copies;
• Staff reductions should be in
areas that are not associated with
reduction in the number of hours
that the library system is open and
reduction in hours of service should
only occur after other economies
have been made;
• Charges for various library
services should be reviewed to ensure that subsidies to users are minimized.
Considering the effects of UBC's
massive funding shortfalls, the report said: "It is also apparent that
there may be pressure on the library
budget for operations with the attendent risk of a deterioration in
service, at a time when the library is
increasingly in demand as a keystone library in a provincial network."
Senate also received a report
from the admissions committee
recommending a limitation in first
and second year engineering enrolment.
The report said the maximum
number of students in second year
"which can be accommodated with
existing resources while providing a
quality education," is 460.
Enrolment to first year engineering will be limited to 450 by 1982.
Cap board
shuffles bosses
Despite pleas by faculty to retain
the current system, the Capilano
College board has approved the
establishment of a middle-
management structure at the North
Vancouver institution.
But the board did temper its
original proposal which called for
ten new directors, to one which
allows faculty and staff to participate in the design of a new
management structure.
"The change (to a new management structure) is not only important but essential," principal Paul
Gallagher said Thursday. "The current system has worked very well
but now we're working in entirely
different circumstances than what
the system was created in."
Capilano College Faculty
Association spokesperson Bill Gibson said faculty members seemed
fairly pleased with the board's decision. "We can come up with a compromise that will be satisfactory to
both parties," he said Thursday.
"We wanted an opportunity to
participate in the decision making
process and we got it."
The board's first proposal had
been viewed by the 280-member
CCFA as a unilateral move to "inject a new layer of bureaucrats" to
the detriment of the college. The
board had not consulted with the
CCFA before announcing its plan
in late July.
More than 150 faculty members
and students attended the board
meeting Tuesday to protest the
"director proposal."
The directors, as proposed by the
board, would have been administrators with no real decisionmaking power, but whose presence
would have seriously eroded the
democratic department structure
currently in place at the college.
Grads eye
AMS divorce
The Graduate Student Association is considering a move to
separate from the Alma Mater
Society this year.
GSA chair John Davies said last
week that because graduate
students have "distinct interests
separate from undergraduate
students," they should consider
constituting an autonomous, self-
governing students association independent of the AMS.
Davies cited a recent GSA dispute
with the AMS over university ice-
time rental for on-campus skating
as an example of the problems induced by the current position of the
GSA within the AMS. He said the
GSA successfully fought the AMS
last spring to have the $50 per hour
ice-time rate for grad students
reduced to the $25 hourly rate paid
by undergraduates.
Davies admitted, however, that
the GSA will have to work within
the AMS for the immediate future.
"We will work with the AMS and
see what we have in common and
see how we can benefit," he said.
Davies said although the GSA
has been considering an autonomy
move for the past five years, this
year they hope to conduct a full
study of the issue. He suggested
that if the independence bid is successful, the GSA will still retain an
association with the AMS. *
Thefts down,
funding needed
A UBC crime prevention program reduced on-campus thefts by
more than 40 per cent since its inception this summer.
Although the program ended
Aug. 30, the Alma Mater Society is
seeking additional funding to continue the program through the
1981-82 school year.
The program's cost is estimated
to be $4,000, to which the AMS will
contribute $1,000. The society is
asking the Alumni Assoc, and the
university administration to provide
the remainder.
According to Sergeant Fred Hardy, RCMP statistics show bike
thefts and thefts from motor vehicles in June and July were the
lowest in four years.
The program, originally funded
by the solicitor general's department had five staff people patrolling the campus, collecting and disseminating information on bicycle
and motor vehicle crime prevention.
Hardy said concentrating on one
area of crime, such as theft of bicycles and motor vehicles, can be
effective in reducing the overall
crime rate at UBC.
A major part of the program is a
pamphlet called "You are asking to
be a crime victim," which was placed on unlocked bikes and cars. The
pamphlet gives an outline of instructions to follow to avoid becoming a victim.
The pamphlets, and additional
posters, will be provided free by
the B.C. Police Commission. Staff
people will be given assistance
and necessary equipment by the
university RCMP detachment.
Pit gets
more renovations
For the second year in a row, the
Pit is undergoing expensive student
council financed renovations.
Wall murals with pictures from
the UBC archives and two 17 foot
mirrors are scheduled for installation by the. end of the month at a
cost of $11,400 Alma Mater Society
administration director Bill Maslechko said Wednesday.
"What we propose to do is to try
to add some of the finishing touches
that were left out last year. Hopefully these relatively minor improvements will put back some of
the esthetic character that is now
quite obviously lacking in the Pit,"
Maslechko said in a July report to
student council.
Last year, controversial renovations included new carpeting, tile
and a food bar were completed at a
cost of $80,000.
Maslechko said the previous renovations were "very functional in
nature, (which resulted in) a rather
cold, bleak room which lacked the
former charm."
Also included in this year's renovations are additional power circuits to increase the selection capacity of the food bar area, Maslechko
fees sought
In the language of journalism,
'30' means 'the end'. At the Social
Credit party convention in
November, resolution number 30
could spell the end for foreign and
visa students at UBC.
The resolution, initiated by the
Socred constituency association for
the Vancouver Centre riding, requests that the ministry of universities, science and communications
look into a two-tier system of fees
.for students. The twocalssifications
would be Canadian (including landed immigrants) and foreign. Differential fees would apply as well to
the ministry of education, thus affecting all foreign and visa students
attending any post-secondary institution in B.C.
Student fees
jump at SFU
Simon Fraser University's student association is battling a
predicted $80,000 budget deficit
this year by raising student fees $3.
Combined with a $2 fee for funding
a Public Interest Research Group at
that campus, SFU students will now
pay a $21 student fee.
Upon teaming of the predicted
deficit, the student association
decided to raise the fee levy. At
UBC a referendum must pass
before student fees may be increased, but SFU student polititicians are
not bound by the same rule.
UBC's student fees this year are
Two prominent UBC figures
were appointed to important positions during the summer.
Engineering dean Martin
Wedepohl was appointed to B.C.
Hydro's board of directors in June
in a Hydro move to expand its
board to give more representation
to B.C. regions and the public.
Wedepohl, who was previously
engineering dean at the University
of Manitoba, also served on
Manitoba Hydro's board of directors.
In May UBC medicine professor
Jim Foulks was elected president of
the Canadian Association of
University Teachers. The association represents 26,000 faculty
members and librarians at universities across Canada.
Foulks is a former UBC faculty
association president and former
chair of the CAUT academic
freedom and tenure committee.

bleeding all over the face. That was
a propaganda deal.
"We don't believe we are going
to reach just a military solution or
just a political solution in pure
terms. The main aspects are that we
want to work out a democratic
political solution, to put all factors
to work in favor of a political solution, even the army factor . . .
because you have to have power in
order to have a solution that's going
to be guaranteed.
"You need a political will to put
all your political tools to work on
that. That means the United States'
will too. They are giving a lot of
arms, a lot of military equipment,
economic aid to keep on
strengthening the rightist sector of
the army. Well, if you want to
weaken that you have to do just the
opposite. But we don't believe it is
just in the hands of the United
States. They by themselves don't
want to do it — they cannot do it —
so we have to work out also, among
other factors, the balance of forces,
to have a much better balance of
forces — it's improving — international solidarity, international isolation of the junta, the fascist people,
so we can search for a political solution that was not there at the beginning of the war, that is there at the
end of the war."
Today, there are virtually two El
Salvadors. The vast majority of the
country, including the capital city,
is still under the junta's military
command by day. The rest is
without constant borders, as the
rebels consolidate their control over
mostly mountainous lands on the
border with Honduras. It is in these
areas, Ungo said, that the Front has
established its own local government, while an immense network of
supporters in the junta-controlled
areas aid the armed rebels.

Another academic year, another
Vista column for the culturally inclined and the perpetually
perverted. What would life be
without Vista, the most consistent
(and prolific) article in The
Ubyssey. Well-written, concise, insightful, and full of wry humor,
Vista has known to launch many a
career throughout its long history
Oust ask Nicholas Read, who does
religion reports for one of the great
big dailies).
For those of you not familiar
with Vista (God bless your souls
and forgive you), Vista is a regular
column that appears in each Friday
edition. Theoretically, each Vista
column should highlight forthcoming cultural events in our glorious
city, with special emphasis given to
small and/or struggling companies
seeking to make their mark with
university students, the impoverished souls.
At the top of the list this week:
First, the musical highlights.
Sept. 27 is the date for the Vancouver Mozart Society's fall concert, which will be held at the West
Vancouver United Church, at
Marine Drive and 21st street. Admission price is $3, and "all Mozart
connoisseurs are welcome."  This
would be a great time to start a people's riot and overthrown the
Mozart-loving Bourgeoise.
The Pureed String Quartet will
present a Masterpiece Music Concert, under the guidance of Ronald
de Kant (great-great-grandson of
the famous philosopher), 2:30 p.m.
on Sept. 27 at the Vancouver East
Cultural Centre.
Vancouver Symphony
Orchestra's Musically Speaking
series gets underway with Czecho-
slavakian pianist Rudolf Firkunsky
and conductor John Nelson in the
Orpheum (no, not the place that's
playing Caligula). The date is Sept.
26 the time 8:30 p.m.
The ensemble-in-residence at the
Vancouver East Cultural Centre,
Days, Months and Years to Come
opens its new season at the cultural
centre at the cultural centre on Sunday, October 4, at 8 p.m.
Laurie Anderson! David Burge!
Mauricio Kagel! Gamelan Paifica!
Electric Phoenix! What would these
persons and/or groups have in common, you ask. They're all part of
the Vancouver New Music Society's
"gala season," which leads off on
Oct. 2 at 8 p.m. with the "alarming
ly talented group" Electric Phoenix. Also on the program is Tales
and Songs from the Bible of Hell,
by Henri Pousseur. The place is Simon Fraser University.
Press releases get more and more
threatening as times go by. "When
you think of the Go-Go's, you'll
think of beach parties on hot summer nights, of wanton lust turned to
burning love, of Cruising dead
man's curve at 90 mph. Because the
world of the Go-Go's is sheer Unadulterated Fun." Annette Funni-
cello and Frankie Avalon, take
note. At the Commodore Sept. 29,
7:30 p.m.
The good, disposable Sam Shepard's two plays, True West and
Buried Child launch the Westcoast
Actors and Tamahnous Theatre's

a wild comedy. True West is playing
at the Waterfront Theatre, while
Buried Child is being given the final
