Campus employment centres cut
By PETER KUITENBROUWER
Canadian University Press
MONTREAL (CUP) — On April
1, 1986, the federal government will
cut the budgets of all Canada
Employment Centres on campus by
30 per cent.
The employment and immigration ministry says the cuts mean the
job centres, which found jobs for
46,581 graduates in 1983-84, will lay
off one third of their personnel.
Staff at Montreal's six university
job centres will drop to 24
employees from 34.
Deputy prime minister Erik
Neilson's Ministerial Task Force on
Programs Review ordered the cuts
in May, according to Fergus Thomson, national director of employ
ment centres on campus. In New
Management Initiatives, its May
1985 report, the task force wrote
"Canada Employment Centres on
campus are seen as duplicating and
to some extent competing with services offered by regular employment centres."
With   fewer   staff,   centres   are
planning to concentrate on finding
full-time jobs for university
graduates. Many plan to close in the
summer and greatly reduce efforts
to find students part-time and summer jobs.
"Nothing's been decided yet, but
one scenario is no summer
placements," said Marcel
Lamoureux, director of the McGill

Students support apartheid protest
By MARY McALlSTER
"I'm here today because I'm a
human being and I must do this to
remain human," said. Lutheran
campus minister Ray Schultz. It
was Friday, National Student Action Day Against Apartheid and the
United Nations Day of Solidarity
with Political Prisoners and
students on campuses across
Canada and the United States including UBC students commemorated the day.
About 100 students gathered outside SUB's south end to hear
speeches by Schultz and Leslie
Roosa, spokesperson for Students
for a Free Southern Africa. The student group organized the vigil.
Music which started the
demonstration carried the theme,
"You can blow out a candle but
you can't blow out a fire" and
"Free Nelson Mandela." Hundreds
more students heard the music
while eating their lunches.
"We're here today because
millions of fellow human beings in
Southern Africa are being treated as
if they are not fully human," said
Schulz.
Schulz then addressed those who
ask why activists give South Africa
a hard time but never comment on
human rights violations in Soviet
countries. "We do object to human
rights violations anywhere in the
world. That's why we comment on
this incidence.
"South Africa is particularly
repugnant because it claims to be
one of the democratic countries of
the world. All other democracies
must object for the sake of their
own global integrity."
The crowd broke into applause
when Schulz said that since moral
majority leader, Jerry Falwell went
to South Africa he has had a $1
million drop in revenue.
"One of the best things he did for
our side was to call Bishop Desmond Tutu a phony." Tutu won
the nobel prize for his peace keeping efforts.
"Now Tutu wonders how much
longer he can or will want to ask his
people to remain patient and
peaceable in the face of institutionalized violence," Schulz said.
Leslie Roosa said, "the United
Nations has declared apartheid a
crime against humanity."
Roosa listed some statistics compiled by the South African Congress of Trade Unions:
• the number of doctors
available to whites is 1 for 330, to
blacks 1 for 91,000;
• whites have 1 teacher for
every 22 children, blacks have one
for every 60 children;
• the average monthly income
of "whites is $1,222, blacks earn
$251;
• whites have 87 per cent of the
land and blacks have the remaining
13 per cent;
• whites vote every 5 years but
blacks never vote;
• there are 4.7 million whites in
South Africa and 26.3 million
blacks.
"Those that sit back and do not
prevent or stop this crime are really
just as guilty as those involved."
Roosa said.
Both Schulz and Roosa called for
action in the form of sanctions, and
urged students to take a stand on
the issue. On campus, Students for
a Free Southern Africa have already
obtained 550 signatures on a petition asking the Alma Mater Society
to boycott South African owned
Rothmans and Carling O'Keefe
products.
Student council, however, has
only agreed to an informational
campaign. The next step of the anti-
apartheid group will be to gather
signatures for a campus-wide
referendum on the issue.
The crowd was very attentive to
the speakers and responded warm-
iy.
Kathy Murphy, arts 4, attended
the vigil to find out more about the
South African situation. "I don't
think there's been enough information, I'd like to find out if a boycott
would affect the blacks."
Roosa cleared up this question.
"In a recent poll 77 per cent of the
blacks    approved    of   sanctions
against South Africa.
"They are well aware that more
action is needed on the international front to pressure the South
African government to introduce
equal citizenship. The longer this
process is delayed the longer the
suffering will continue."
Schulz added Canada has consistently voted against sanctions.
"We have been told that our
presence is a significant force for
change. We have been told that
such sanctions would create hardships" Schulz said, in fact, the
black people are asking u,s for sanctions.
Darren McBratney, science 1,
said he would definitely support a
boycott. "I'll have to change to
another beer.
"I agree with what they're saying
totally. I'm against racism" he said.
Bookworm jailed
TORONTO (CUP) — A fqrmer University of Toronto student,
who let his love of books get the better of him, has been sentenced to
seven days in jail for not returning hundreds of library books.
George Elia, a former continuing studies student, was also placed
under probation, ordered to do 300 hours of community work, and
to pay a $3000 fine.
Elia's case is believed to be the first in Canada where a person has
been jailed for not returning overdue books.
Elia, 48, registered at U of T in 1981, and borrowed books from at
least five of its libraries over the next four years.
During their investigation, the police found 226 library books,
mostly on archeology and Eastern religion, worth about $13,000.
Some of the books were also from York University.
Although Elia was blacklisted by librarians at U of T, a slight
misspelling of his name when he re-registered in 1984, allowed him to
get a new card.
U of T librarian Robert Brandeis equated Elia's actions with stealing cars or television sets. "It's plain theft. It's really important that
the court has recognized the seriousness of this offence."

He said the centre will "provide
counselling services on the labour
market in group sessions more than

Employment centres are hoping
colleges and universities will hire
staff to fill in for the government
staff who lose their jobs.
"Probably some universities
should make up the shortfall," said
Thomson.
"Those who haven't supplied
support staff should learn from
those who already do."
Businesses ar? worried the cuts
will make recruiting students more
difficult. Judy Laws, staffing
specialist for university and college
recruitment Et Bell-Northern
Research in Ottawa, said: "We expect a certain amount of service

Salaries go
to arbitration
UBC faculty salary negotiations
with the administration for the
budget year which started last July
have broken down and the dispute
will soon go before an arbitration
board.
"The administration and association can't agree on either the local
amount of salary increase or on the
nature of the distribution of this
amount," said Faculty Association
president Sidney Mindess.
The administration is offering a
two per cent net increase on continuing staff salaries with .75 per cent
going to merit increases, .75 per
cent to address inequities and
anomalies and the final .5 per cent
being added to an additional .5 per
cent to be distributed for career
progress.
The association is asking for 1.75
per cent for career progress, .25 per
cent for general merit and 1.5 per
cent for a one time only discretionary merit payment.
The universities council of B.C.
gave UBC $5.5 million for a special
faculty adjustment fund to be used
for early termination, faculty
renewal and faculty merit
payments.
The administration wants to use
$2 million of this money to fund
their proposal for faculty salaries
while the faculty want to use the
fund only for the amount required
for the one year discretionary merit
awards, said Mindess.
Under an agreement negotiated
earlier this year, arbitrations of
disputes between faculty and administration are heard by a three
member board and a unanimous
ruling is binding on both parties. If
the arbitration board cannot agree
the UBC board of governors can
impose a settlement which must be
at least as favourable as the one the
administration presented to the arbitration.
James Dybikowski, UBC
associate vice-president for faculty
relations, said the administration
has already submitted their offer in
writing.
"The university is committed to
the two per cent increase," he said.
Mindess said the reason they
went to arbitration was because
they could not persuade the administration on how serious the
matter of salary increases falling
was.

Work study eliminated
WINNIPEG (CUP) — Despite protests from students on both campuses here, the federal government
has cut the three-year-old work
study program for university
students, and at least one student
leader says the replacement stinks.
The program was eliminated
without prior notice, said Sean
MacDonald, University of Winnipeg students' council president.
"We never received any justification or explanation from the
government either," said Glen
Jones, University of Manitoba
students' council director of services.
"They just informed us our grant
wasn't being renewed.'
The Conservative government
plans to replace the program with
what it calls the Job Entry Cooperative Education Option, which
has a four-year span and much harsher criteria, MacDonald said.
"It's much harder for a students'
association to meet the requirements of the new program,"
MacDonald said.
The program, introduced by the
Liberal government in' 1982, provided students with practical work
experience at jobs related to their
field of study. Last year more than
650 students at the University of
Winnipeg and the University of
Manitoba found jobs under the
program while they were going to
school.
According to the JECEO application manual, student unions implementing the program must come
up with 15 per cent of the funding
in the first year. By the fourth year,
student unions must cough up 65
per cent of the money.
"I think it's very unrealistic to
expect students unions to raise that
kind of money," said Michael
Sunley, Canadian Federation of
Students Manitoba board representative.
"I think it would be very time
consuming to look into provincial
sources and contributions from
local companies."
The manual stipulates that jobs
must be in both the public and
private sectors. This would reduce
the number of jobs for students
Tories cut job centres
within universities such as researchers, markers, and teaching
assistants, MacDonald said.
"This is one of the biggest problems we face this year," he said.
"It's almost devastating. The
work/study program supplemented
the income of a lot of needy and
qualified students and provided
some meaningful jobs."
"I don't understand why it was
cut," he said.
"Maybe because it was a Liberal
program and they just decided to
discontinue it."
Ruth Pryzner, Brandon University students' council president, said
her university didn't have a
Work/Study program, but the
students' council had intended to
apply for one in the fall.
Said Sharon Carstairs, Manitoba
Liberal leader; "The decision to
end the program is symptomatic of
this government's hypocritical attitude to post-secondary education.
It is ironic that an administration'
devoted almost entirely to the needs
of the private sector would cut a
program which was creating jobs
and helping the economy."

BNR will get 2,000 resumes this
year, said Laws. "We rely on (the
campus job centres) to gather the
resumes — it sure saves us a lot of
grief when they do the up-front
work."
She said a 30 per cent reduction
of staff means BNR gets less service, "it would be of concern to
us."
The University and College
Placement Association in Toronto,
which represents companies like
BNR who recruit graduates, wrote a
letter to Flora MacDonald, minister
of employment and immigration,
asking her to explain the cuts.
In her reply, MacDonald wrote:
"The objective is not to discontinue
this service but to identify more cost
efficient methods for its delivery."
Ron Hiscock, office manager at
the association, said the reply was
not very enlightening. "There is
some concern among our members
(about the cut)," Hiscock said.
"One half of our members are
placement officers."
"Companies rely very much on
these centres," Hiscock said.
In fact, the centres have not been
doing poorly. Quebec's 54 centres
(half the country's total) placed
22,000 of the province's 44,000
graduating students in "regular"
jobs in 1984-85, up eight per cent
over last year.
Though the centres say they now
plan to concentrate on finding jobs
for graduates, more than two thirds
Salaries low
From page 1
"UBC's salary increases are
smaller than that of most of the
universities across Canada," said
Mindess. "Further erosion of the
UBC faculty salary position could
generally lead to a continuing low
morale. It could also result in more
difficult recruitment for the university as well as increasing the temptation of certain people to leave."
Dybikowski said the university
made its offer to provide some
recognition to faculty members who
might otherwise leave.
"I think that the university is
very deeply concerned about faculty
salaries," he said. "The university's
financial situation is quite different
from that of other universities in
Canada (which have got budget increases)."
He said UBC's budget has been
falling and that, along with final
budget announcements well into the
fiscal year, "puts the university into
an impossible situation from a planning point of view."
of students registered at employment centres last year were
undergraduates.
In Quebec, company recruiters
spent 260 more days on campuses
last year than the year before.
Claude Ricard, Quebec region
consultant on youth employment,
said the centres were certainly
crucial for corporate recruitment.
"When they (the companies)
work through newspapers they will
get all kinds of applicants," he said.
Ricard said the centres have a lot
of work because "now we have a
major block in many areas. CEGEP
students are having more difficulty
to integrate into the workplace."
Asked about the Conservative
government's claim the campus
centres are competing with the
regular centres, Ricard said: "I
don't see competition. Not in the
negative sense of the term. On campus, it is a campus audience. Not
many students go to regular services. Many are from out of town
and don't know the community."
"To say they're in
competition ... is like saying my
left hand is in competition with my
right hand," Ricard said.
This summer, the employment
centre at the University of Victoria
knocked on more than 1,000 corporate doors, "marketing" UVic
students to potential employers,

South Pacific fights arms race
By AL BANNER
A major part of the nuclear arms
race is happening in the Pacific
Ocean and the rest of the world is
ignoring it, a peace researcher said
Friday.
"There is more nuclear infrastructure in the Pacific than in
Europe," said Owen Wilkes, speaking with lawyer Roman Bedor to 40
people in SUB 205 for the Nuclear
Free and Independent Pacific
Movement.
He said there are facilities for
development, storage, launching
and control of the weapons.
In busy years, the United States
tests a missile every two weeks, he
said, adding both the U.S. and the
Soviet Union use the Pacific for
weapons tests.
The few objections from the two
superpowers about each other's
testing are "an example of functioning deterrence" where one side
can not complain about the other
without drawing attention to their
own activities, he said.
Wilkes said the U.S. stores about
3,000 nuclear weapons in the
Pacific which is "half as many as in
Europe but you don't hear half the
fuss."
There   are   four   Trident   sub
marines with a planned total of 10.
he said.
"Each Trident has more nuclear
firepower than all of the older
(nuclear armed) Poseidon submarines combined." Wilkes said
the deployment of 350 nuclear-
armed sea-mobile Tomahawk cruise
missiles, will mean three quarters of
all U.S. warships coming to bases
including the Canadian Forces Base
at Esquimalt will have the new
missiles.
Bedor, a lawyer for the South
Pacific islands of Belau, said "every
generation in the Pacific is a generation of struggle."
In World War II, the islands were
taken by the Japanese and turned
into military bases, he said.
The Japanese explained that their
forces were there "for the defence
and protection of the people" but
their islands were destroyed by
thousands of bombs even though it
was not their war," he said.
"We are worried if we accept the
U.S. military into the islands then
we are accepting another war."
Bedor said Belau is a U.S. trust
territory under a 1947 United Nations agreement which says Belau
has the right to independence if support is shown by referendum of the
islanders.
Bedor said there have now been
five referenda. Three of them have
show islander support as high as 92
per cent for a constitution including
a clause banning all weapons from
the islands, the other two were promoted by the U.S. and included
provision  for a  "friendly treaty"
which would give the U.S. control
of one third of the islands for
storage of weapons. These were
defeated by eighty per cent of the
vote. Now the U.S. wants a sixth
referendum, he said.
"We have had enough
referenda," said Bedor.
"Our people have lost hope in
democratic government, we are
wondering when our right [for self-
determination] is going to be
recognized."
"But, as long as the Pacific
Islands continue in the hands of
those that exploit us, then there is
no future for us — that is why we
want to be nuclear free."
Critics scoff at Bible college
By KAREN GRAM
Canadian University Press
Four months after a B.C.
legislature private member's bill
transformed a B.C. bible college into a degree granting university, opposition still rankles.
Trinity Western College, a
private Christian college, became a
university last June following a
vigourous lobby campaign by the
college's administration and the
Social Credit MLA in the riding
who introduced the bill.
But Lome Nicholson, NDP critic
for universities, said he is concerned
private universities allow the
government to neglect its responsibility to adequately fund public
universities.
"The   government   seems   to
favour, or not object to private
universities but we're not keeping
up with the rest of the provinces in
terms of public institutions," said
Nicholson.
"Our universities are becoming
more and more inaccessible" he
said because of higher costs and
fewer course offerings. "We can't
treat universities as a luxury.
University is a very necessary
thing."
Nicholson also said he doesn't
like the religious orientation of
Trinity Western. "I found things I
thought were objectionable.
Students must sign a contract agreeing not to use drugs, or alcohol,
engage in premarital sex, or
dance," said Nicholson. "Such a
thing is stultifying."

UBC CHAIRATHON COORDINATOR Rolf Brulhart drumming up sup
port for the Sunday October 27 fundraising event. He hopes to raise
$50,000 for UBC hospital's senior citizens and dependant residents of the
extended care unit. Students are encouraged to form a team and participate or sponsor someone in the event.
Trinity Western is run by the
Evangelical Free Church. It offers
mainly what it calls Christian
Liberal Arts to 730 full time
students in Langley. The Universities Council of B.C. also opposes
the change but for very different
reasons.
The council, an agent of the provincial government, is concerned
Trinity Western doesn't fall under
its control.
According to the Universities
Act, the UCBC was established to
receive and coordinate budget
allocations for the three public
universities in the province.
But council chair George Morfitt,
said the government also wants the
council to "coordinate with the
universities in system planning."
"System planning (the government's plan to eliminate duplication
of offerings) embraces the whole
matter of post secondary education
but the council is only concerned
with universities," said Morfitt.
"We're really prodding various and
sundry to broaden our mandate to
include all areas of post secondary
education." The UCBC will present
a brief to the government at the end
of October requesting control of
TWU's curriculum for system planning and a system developed to adjudicate the academic standards of
the university.
B.C. is home to only two other
degree granting private universities:
The Open Learning Institute, a correspondence university, and City
University, the Canadian wing of
an American university in
Washington. Its American accreditation means it can sell itself as
a university in B.C. even though it
meets few of the criteria associated
with such a body.
Sally Ann experiments with battered women shelter
By MARY McALISTER
The quality of service in the new
shelter for battered women
operated by the salvation army is
being questioned by the women
who have been running the Vancouver Transition house for 12
years.
Jan Forde, Women Against
Violence Against Women official,
is concerned the ministry of Human
Resources has "taken something
tried and true and tried to make an
experiment."
The ministry awarded the contract to run three new transition
houses to the Salvation Army and
Act II in July, after the YWCA contract ran out on June 31, 1985. The
YWCA did not request renewal of
their contract because they felt it
was an administrative drain on the
organization.
Forde said there has been no consultation between the women who
are still occupying the original transition house and the Salvation Army since the new house opened last
Wednesday.
Human Resources Minister Grace
McCarthy has said she hopes, "the
Kate Booth House will function as a
central intake house, offering short-
term emergency shelter and crisis
counselling for women and children
who are victims of family
violence."
The Salvation Army's house can
hold a maximum of 12 women and
their children for 14 days. They offer a 24 hour crisis line and have
eight people on staff.
After their stay in Kate Booth
house women will be referred to
Act II. Executive Director of Act II,
Vi Roden said the philosophy of
their program is to "give the
woman some alternatives to take
hold of her life again and to become
independent."
Act II runs two houses which can
hold five women and their children
for 30 days. They offer one on one
counselling and group counselling
once a week by three counsellors
trained to deal with family violence,
said Roden.
They also provide one on one
counselling or play therapy for
children. Act II ha^ been running
programs including ones to help
sexually abused children for five
years.
CUP conference
Provincial education coverage
and sexism in the newsroom were
discussed at a Western Regional
Canadian university Press conference in Winnipeg over the
Thanksgiving weekend.
"The biggest frustration is the
general lack of education news
coming from the papers with little
analysis," said Karen Gram, B.C.
bureau chief and fieldworker.
"Papers are not getting the big picture."
Sexist advertising and sexual
harassment within individual papers
"One in 10 women in marriage
situations are being abused,"
Roden said.
Linda Ervin runs a general
counselling program at First United
Church and often refers women to
Vancouver Transition House.
Ervin said she would have prefer
red to see the contract given to the
women presently occupying transition House who are not affiliated
with religious groups.
"The (unionized) workers should
have been maintained in their
jobs," she said.
On Aug. 27th Vancouver's city
council passed a motion to study
the feasability of sponsoring the
Vancouver Transition House.
Women Against Violence Against
Women is hoping the study will
support Transition House and will
continue referring women to the
house.
McGill students demand divestment
OTTAWA (CUP) — Twenty
students occupied the McGill
University administration building
Friday, leaving only when they were
assured divestment from companies
which do business with South
Africa would be on the next board
of governors meeting agenda.
The crowd left an earlier
demonstration at the Alcan
Aluminum head office in Montreal
and spontaneously marched to
McGill's administration building.
Carrying signs and a large banner
reading: "Fight Racism in South
Africa," the students walked up to
the fifth floor offices of Nathan
Moss, secretary of McGill's board
of governors.
"After 15 to 20 minutes he came
out," said Brendan Weston, a
third-year economics student and
sexism, education
dominated discussion periods.
Many papers also said they had
revised their advertising boycott
lists this year to include companies
with South African ties.
At the three day conference
delegates attended seminars on
copy editing and staff democracy
given by CUP staff and representatives from the Winnipeg Free
Press.
Due to four resignations over the
summer, elections were held for the
positions of WRCUP co-president,
human   rights   coordinator,   and
Campus plus (CUP's advertising
cooperative of 57 papers) representative.
Preparation for the CUP 48 national conference this December
was also discussed. The Ubyssey,
The Peak (Simon Fraser university)
and The Capilano Courier
(Capilano college) will host the conference in Abbotsford.
Forty delegates from sixteen
papers in Western Canada attended
the quarter-annually held conference.
one of the demonstrators.
"With badgering we managed to
get him to agree to have a (divestment) motion put on the agenda for
the Oct. 21 board meeting."
Moss also agreed the meeting
would be open. (Most board
meetings are closed to students and
media).
Amy Kaler, a student representative on the board, will put forward the motion, said Weston, adding it is usually difficult to get a
motion on the board's agenda.
McGill has investments worth
$8.5 million in 26 companies which
are "directly or indirectly" linked
to South Africa, according to a
report the school released Sept. 4,
1985. These include $1.54 million in
the Bank of Montreal; $700,000 in
CIL Incorporated; $1.74 million in
the Canadian Imperial Bank of
Commerce; $2 million in General
Motors; $1.12 million in the Royal
Bank of Canada; and $1.02 million
in Seagram's Inc.
The chairs of Alcan and the

Midterms are here.
Yes those lovely Thanksgiving Monday holiday ruiners have once again caused eyebags

Dukes sells tons of chocolate covered
espresso beans to keep everyone buzzing

But then burn out sets in: sneezing, sniffling,

Work monopolies protect UBC faculty members
I read with mixed feelings about
the dismissal of 12 UBC faculty
members and the probe of an
academic freedom and tenure committee into these people. I think
that alleging a violation of academic
freedom or unjust dismissal
overlooks a much wider social injustice: that of work monopolies
protected by sheltering
mechanisms.
In these times of massive
unemployment, there are many
established professionals, civil servants, union members with high
seniority and tenured academics sitting smugly on their almost absolute job security.
Young people find, in most
desirable fields of endeavor, that
entry is reduced to a trickle by entrenched jobholders who guard
their monopoly with severe and
often unfair entry requirements.
And the longer the breadlines of
the unemployed, the more are labor
unions and academics insisting on
absolute job security. While the
unemployed become impoverished
and desperate, such organized work
monopolies remain obsessed with
further improving the affluent living standard of their members.
The general problem is, of
course, that members of one
generation have clogged up work
opportunities for the next. While
some of us were still unborn, others
were already accumulating seniority
or tenure rights. Stacking the rules
of   the   game,   those   who   have
already enjoyed the benefits of a
full-time job for the longest time —
and often amassed all the trinkets
of affluence — claim preference
when it comes to keeping it.
Our liberal society aspires to be a
just society as well. Social justice requires that no citizen be
discriminated on irrelevant
grounds in the distribution of
social benefits and burdens. Justice
requires, therefore, that no one
should be excluded from any type
of work on irrelevant grounds —
and someone's date of birth is surely as irrelevant as skin color or
gender.
It was predictable that labor
unions would become, not
upholders  of justice,   but   simply
another crude and petty pressure
group fighting for narrow interests
to the detriment of their fellow
citizens. What one finds disappointing, though, is that even the intelligentsia in the professions and at
universities seems hardly more
enlightened.
One often hears, in discussions
with academics, that getting a
university post was relatively easy in
the sixties. Now these academics are
safely entrenched in tenured jobs
and as remote from unemployment
and other real-life problems as
anyone can get. They are learned
people and very smart, but by and
large the academic community is
not composed of an intellectual
super-elite.
Lifetime job security has led to a
lot of moderately competent people
hired when times were good being
kept at universities while people of
far superior competence are crowded out. Now that times are bad,
many a vibrantly intelligent young
Ph.D. finds academic job opportunities clogged up by ossified incompetents.
There may be persuasive rationalizations of tenure. After all,
"a person who loses their job is
unhappier than someone who never
had one"; or "one needs job security to plan a life"; or "we will have
an exodus of our best research people without tenure"; and of course
"we need this protection to ensure
freedom of teaching".  But, from
the point of view of justice, the unjust lack of work opportunities for
the younger generation resulting
from tenure and similar sheltering
mechanisms is outrageous.
It is sad to see the panic-stricken
scramble for jobs at its most vicious
in the academic arena, whose concentrated mind power, one would
think, could offer solutions. Tenure
is clearly no solution: we must share
the work of overcrowded occupations around, and we must make
them less attractive by lowering
their pay. Two good reasons, and
the only good reasons, for above-
average pay are as compensation
for dirty and dangerous work and
as incentive for skilled people in

Aggression violates code of human ethics
As an active supporter of the
New Democrats, I am enraged at
the remarks made by Michelle
Tessler in her article about the
Israeli bombing (Oct. 4). That this
country should be so bold as to conduct militaristic acts of aggression
within another country's borders
breaks all dictums of International
Law and violates every code of
human ethics. In doing so, the
Israelis murdered countless innocents.
What they did was wrong! I
would have been incensed by the
death of one bystander, let alone
811. Israeli Prime Minister Shimon
Peres stated that the raid was an attack on "terrorists", but Tunisians
and resident Palestinians, who had
nothing to do with the valiant efforts of the PLO, died with the
freedom-fighters. Now who are the
terrorists?
Soon after the raid, Palestinians
living on the West Bank assembled
in peaceful protest in the town of
Kalkilya. Immediately, Kalkilya
was put under "curfew".
Spokesmen for the PLO say that
they fear reprisals on Palestinians
within Israel by Israeli death-
squads.
Political system allows involvement
In the Oct. 11 issue of the
Ubyssey I was accused of not being
an anarchist because I am a member
of student's council. I was accused
of 'washing my hands in the dung of
politics.' My reply is 'Welcome to
the real world, mate.' It would be
easy to say, 'I'm an anarchist so I
can't be a part of the political
system.' This is a nice, clean, sterile
excuse for not getting involved.
However, some anarchists
recognize that, whether we like it or
not, a political system exists now
and it happens to be one which does
allow some input.
We shouldn't be afraid of getting
our hands dirty if we can use this
system and try to prevent some of
its excesses (such as imposed
boycotts). This may not be as pure a
viewpoint as the one expressed in
the previous letter, but it does
recognize the simple fact that it's
generally easier to change a system
from the inside.
With regard to the specific issue
of companies that are partially controlled by South African interests, it
was implied that the AMS would
sell their products no matter what
students wanted. This belief ignores
the simple fact that if students don't
buy these products, the AMS won't
sell them. Some people may not like
allowing the students to decide for
themselves what should and
shouldn't be sold by their AMS, but
as an anarchist I have no objection
to it. Dave Kary
4th yr. astronomy/geophysics
member of student's council
Due to Israeli's close military ties
to the United States, we do not
receive too much coverage of
Israel's acts of terrorism, and it is
only when they overstep themselves
that we hear of it, as they did in
their genocidal campaign into
Beirut. Israel has all the
characteristics of an expansionistic,
right-wing dictatorship, ironically a
virtual Nazi Germany of the 1980s.
It is only proper then that a few
valiant souls rise up and strike
back.
The Tunisians rightly demand
reparations, and almost every country, including Canada, support
them in condemning the terrorist
activities of Israel. Shouldn't we do
more, though?
At the very least, economic sanctions — or still better, a joint condemnation by the United Nations,
led by Tunisia and backed up by
verbal affirmation by all member
nations of the senselessness of war.
If the Israeli government wishes to
redeem itself, the only option for it
should be the trial of the Israeli
pilots in the International Court as
war criminals.
1 am saddened by the fact that
alone among all countries, the
United States fails to condemn
Israel. However, I am not surprised, for Israel is but the Middle
Eastern mouthpiece for U.S. imperialistic propaganda. Indeed, the
possibility of U.S. involvement in
the raid is a certainty, according to
some sources. This being the case, it
would be political suicide for the
United States to condemn their
satellite states.
I am also saddened that the
Ubyssey, ever the voice of impartiality, should even print a piece of
biased, right-wing rhetoric such as
Michelle Tessler's article. In the
future, I hope your paper returns to
its old standards of objectivity and
broadmindedness.

Access road reaches dead end
Cheers for our Park Commissioners who've dead-ended police
plans for an access road to Wreck
Beach. Not only is there far less
"gangsterism" there than at Vancouver's designer beaches, but its
users deserve applause for having
one of the best-maintained spots on
the Lower Mainland.
Over the summer our group has
helped children in a "Safeguard
and Improve Your Environment"
educational program, cleaning up
local beaches of other peoples' lit
ter. The project has as its inspiration a 44-page booklet, "The Way
to Happiness." This common-sence
guide counsels a return to traditional values of honesty, trust and
responsibility — e.g. the Safeguard
Your Environment precept.
Wreck Beach users may not have
read our book, but they've also not
insisted on expensive public services, and we've never had to clean
up after them. Leah Schmiedeke

"It's time to smash the state," said Gordana Rasic. Murray Johnson, John Edgar, Lise Magee and
Muriel Draaisma agreed wholeheartedly and grabbed big sticks. "No, we should giggle at the state,"
cried Debbie Lo to an assembled throng of Vera Manuel, Michael Goberman and Ed Mou. Karen Gram
and Erika Simpson could only think happily of the wild weekend in Winnipeg with 40 real neato people.
Dan Andrews, Andrew Li, Al Banner and Steve Neufeld said they didn't think the state was half bad,

Violent play subverts society
By MICHAEL GROBERMAN
"If they can look at you and say
'that guy is every asshole whoever
came on to me in a bar,' it's working." Robert Garfat speaks in
relaxed, even tones but his
animated body reveals the intensity
of the vision he is trying to express.
Garfat, a second year MFA student, is directing a scene on which
he says is giving him particular difficulty.
"Okay, show me, let's play," he
tells the actors. He walks back off
the stage and reassumes his squatting position, one hand on his chin,
the other holding the ever-present
cigarette.
The production is Beyond
Mozambique and opened a four-
night run last night at the Dorothy
Somerset Studio. Garfat describes
the play as "absurd farce . . . highly
entertaining and different". The
characters are displaced westerners
in Mozambique. "They are totally
obsessed with themselves" explains
Garfat. He refers specifically to
dialogue between Rita and Olga:
Olga: . . . What's that your're
covered with?
Rita: Blood.
Olga: From where?
Rita: His head.
Olga: Whose head?
Rita: The priest. Father Ricci.
Someone took an axe to him. I
found his head outside my tent . . .
She drops the head from the bag.
Olga: Yes.That's Father Ricci all
right. I recognize the disapproving
look. Oh. Before I. forget. You're
invited to breakfast tomorrow mor-.
ning.
In an interview later Garfat said
he uses humour to show that society
is complacent about violence.
It is this ability to confront his
audience which excites Garfat.
"Theatre must look at what makes
theatre special and must explore
these areas rather than areas better
explored by film, video and T.V.
The idea of creatively stagnant
theatre, theatre created solely as a
consumer product to appeal to the
lowest common denominator,
disturbs Garfat, "When theatre
stops breaking new ground, it
becomes television," he said. He
speaks of the "T.V. trend" as pervasive in mainstream theatre: "fast
dialogue, short scenes, relatively
safe subjects."
Theatres such as the Arts Club
and the Vancouver Playhouse provide entertainment — an important
thing in itself — but a good production must also have a "good shot of
artistic integrity," said Garfat.
Tamhanous production of Contagious approaches Garfat's ideal
of theatre as art. "It had tremendous entertainment value, good
choreography, and social relevence
. . ." he said.
Dark Horse's production of
Night with Guests, which Garfat
originally direcied at UBC last year,
ran in last month's Vancouver Fringe Festival, and will run in
November at the Firehall Theatre.
For Garfat, belongs to the non-
mainstream Dark horse means
freedom. "To hell with making
money, I'm going to do what I want
to do", said Garfat.
Doing what he wants to do includes Garfat's special passion,
Canadian plays. "There are a
number of playwrights in Canada
who write to explore what it is to be
Canadian. It is important for us to
understand Canadian mythology".
Beyond Mozambique is a Canadian play which Garfat says speaks
directly to Canadians about the
Canadian experience. This experience is located in the un-
Canadian jungles of Mozambique.
The audience sits surrounding the
acting space, becoming part of the
jungle. Props include a dead body
(missing one foot), intestines and,
of course, Father Ricci's head. The
show is the first of two Garfat will
do during his final year in the MFA
program.
During rehearsal Garfat continues to struggle with this one
scene, sitting in an audience chair,
his legs resting on the back of the
chair in front, he concentrates on
the acting before him. Suddenly he
is on his feet again, striding across
the stage, "Good stuff, good
stuff," he compliments the actor,
then turns back to directing:
"That's where he breaks up. Until
then he's a macho shitface".
The show runs until Friday. Prospective audience members be
reminded    and    fore-warned:
Garfat's theatre is guerilla warfare.
Garfat said he is fulfilling a need
of society for theatre with his own
need to create, and to direct.
"Theatre allows us to hold a mirror
up to our culture and say, look at
yourself, see how silly, violent,
foolish we all are and how wonderful we could be. Theatre at its best
is guerilla warfare. It is trying to
subvert society," said Garfat.
Garfat decided to direct some of
this subversion after several years as
an actor. He spent three years in acting specialization at U Vic, remaining  until  "I  decided  I'd  learned
everything". The next three years in
Toronto, acting in plays, film, and
T.V. convinced him of two things:
he wanted lo finish "that great unfinished thing", a university degree,
and he wanted to direct. Backed to
Victoria, he changed his major to
directing and graduated three years
later.
He spent a year at Emily Carr, introducing himself to the wonderful
world of film and video before arriving at UBC for the MFA program. He still loves film, and points
to the cinematic nature of the set
and characters of Beyond Mozambique.
Garfat is also involved with Dark
Horse Theatre Collective which
Garfat calls a "semi-professional"
company because of his mixed feelings about professional theatre
companies. As a collective, Dark
Horse provides its members with an
opportunity to get involved in every
aspect of theatre: acting, lighting,
stage design, etc.
"If one (member) wants to act a
certain role, he can say to the
associates: 'You direct, you design,
etcetera,' " said Garfat.

Festival ends on Japanese giggle
By VERA MANUEL
Slapstick silliness, subtle satire
and the ridiculous misadventures of
samurai warriors and intinerant
"tekiya" merchants — laughter
was definitely the final item on the
agenda of the week-long Japanese
Film Festival.
The two comedies, The Pot
Worth A Million Ryo, a Yamanako
Sadao film, produced in 1935, and
Tora-San the first of a series by Yo-
ji Yamada, produced in 1969,
realistically portray Japanese
humor at its best.
The Pot Worth A Million Ryo
and Tora-San
presented by the Japanese
Film Festival
at Robson Square
The first film is a variation on a
universally familiar theme representative of that time period. A pot
thought to be worthless, but valued
at a million ryo, is passed from
hand to hand and is pursued
throughout the town by a powerful
lord, who wants to add it to his
already abundant fortune, and an
easy-going, quiet unmartial
samarai, who falls into one
ridiculous mis-adventure after
another in his pursuit.
Although this film managed to
bring out a fair-size audience, it was
Tora-San that filled the theatre to
capacity.
Tora-San played by the famous
Jiapanese comedian Kiyoshi Atsumi
is the flamboyant, fun-loving but
bungling hero who transcends any
culture. Though he is often referred
to as a fool and he has that extraordinary ability to make a mess of
everything he touches, there is hardly a moment when he is not a hero.
Like a cat Tora-San always lands
on this feet. Innocently and, most
certainly unintentionally he wreaks
havoc around him, then
miraculously he emerges unscathed.
He is a pursuasive talker, an
itinerant merchant who sells inexpensive items at festivals. In Japan
they are known as tekiya, and
although common in the past, with
Japan's affluence and the availability of more lucrative jobs, they have
disappeared. Tora-San's relatives
are hoping that he will find a decent
job but he has no intention of giving up his trade, and more important his freedom.
On his infrequent visits home he
invariably always falls in love with a
local beauty who is eventually
betrothed to someone more suitable
to her standing. After a brief bout
with a broken heart, he sets out on
his travels again.
"The appeal of this series lies in
his free spirit and in Tora-San's
home.   Katsushika   Shibamata,
which used to be a small town on
the outskirts of Tokyo but is now
incorporated into the burgeoning
metropolis.
It is like a neighborhood in the
Japan of the past, where neighbors
help each other out and freely enter
and leave each others homes as
though they are al! members of the
same family." (Tadao Sato, Currents in Japanese Cinema).
Although this lifestyle has disappeared now, it is preserved in this
film version of Katsushika
Shibamata. It is this depiction of
the old neighborhood that appeals
to the modern Japanese audiences.
The Japanese Film Festival ended, not with a band or a whimper,
but with a healthy giggle. These two
films give a sense of the variety of
comedy in Japan — one, delightfully low-key the other the quintessential Japanese situation comedy.
Sheltered monopolies worsen unemployment crisis
From page 4
short supply. Neither reason applies
to most academics. Surveys show
that   academics   find   their   work
pleasant and satisfying, and that the
supply of capable PhDs in most
disciplines far outsteps demand.
Nor is the argument that lower
Socred majority shrinks
Greg Buchanan claims that the
current Social Credit government
was elected by a "large majority".
In fact the Social Credit party only
outpolled the NDP by five per cent
of the votes cast. That is hardly a
"large majority".
Almost fifty per cent of those
who voted in the last election did
not vote Socred. When one considers that only 70 per cent of the
eligible voters actually voted, the
Socred's bare majority shrinks to a
minority of the possible votes. Only
35 per cent of the eligible voters in
this province voted Socred.
Fully 65 per cent did not.
The majority of voters in this
province do not support Bill Bennett of the Social Credit Party. I
suggest Buchanan sign up for a
remedial math course.
James Baugh
law 2
pay will draw the best people away
from academic work very convincing. I cannot imagine any of my
professors wanting to become stock
brokers or garbage collectors for
the sake of higher pay. Academic
positions are callings, and people
motivated mainly by greed are not
the best to fill these callings.
UBC's academics complain
about being underpaid, at an
average salary of $50,000 a year,
roughly eight times as much as the
income of the average unemployed.
Instead of accepting a slight cut in
salary so as to prevent the firing or
permit the hiring of other faculty
members, they have just allowed 12
fellow academics to be driven from
their jobs. On the one hand, such
unbridled selfishness should fill any
thinking person with disgust; on the
other, the firing of these unlucky
people at least signals the erosion of
tenure.
The self-protective reaction of
academics, professionals and union
members in the face of job shortages is analogous to the reaction of
business entrepreneurs in an
economic depression: these lay off
workers, thus impoverishing their
customers and deepening the
depression. The claim of job
monopoly holders to tenure or
seniority rights only makes the
unemployment crisis worse by
reducing turnover and blocking
worksharing schemes. Sheltered
minorities enjoy toys like yachts,
swimming pools, big houses and
vacation homes, while many of the
unemployed lack the income to
feed, house and clothe themselves
at a reasonably decent level.
Most of those who got hold of
rewarding jobs in good times feel
no compunction about not sharing
them in bad times. On the contrary,
having a good job when so many
people don't increases one's own
prestige.
The voice of justice is not silent.
It tells us that the people who want
to keep well-paid, full-time jobs all
to themselves, all their lives, amassing vast benefits, regardless of the
suffering of their unemployed
fellow citizens, are not selfless
social contributors, but just undiscovered types of egoists.

'Birds romp to seventh victory
By STEVE NEUFELD
The Soccer T-Birds handily
chalked up another two victories
last weekend and stretched their
1985 Canada West unbeaten string
to seven games.
The Thunderbirds dispatched the
first place Alberta Golden Bears 4-1
on Friday afternoon after the
Bears had opened the scoring with a
goal by Frank Sapparito at the fifteen minute mark.
Mike Malana tied the score
before the half while three minutes
into the second half Ken Mulleny
got the winner for the 'Birds off a
cross. John Gasparac and Randy
Ash added the insurance goals for
UBC as they showed Alberta the
door quickly.
Saturday's 6-1 trouncing of the
winless Saskatchewan Huskies
came on an impressive five goal second half performance. Speedy forward Sean McLaughlin scored two
goals on pure hustle to lead the
goalscorers. Other UBC scorers included Murray Mollard, Terry
Klim,   Brian   Muldon   and   Brian
Petersen with the final goal.
"Both Randy Ash and Brian
Muldon looked very good on the
field. Looking ahead, I'm hoping
that some of our regulars came
back from Edmonton (the Canadian Senior championships) in
sound wind and limb for our big
game against the Victoria Vikings
this Saturday," said coach Joe
Johnson. "It (UBC vs Victoria) will
be the game of the season for us."
The Vikings showed Saturday
why they're in first place by coming
from behind against Alberta to eke
Hockey 'Birds tame Seawolves
By BERYL TSANG
The UBC Thunderbirds ice
hockey team showed the University
of Alaska's Anchorage Seawolves a
bad time at a pre-season exhibition
series in Anchorage this past
weekend.
UBC won its first game Friday
night with a score of 6-4 against
Help Rick ride
UBC graduate Rick Hansen's
world tour wheel chair marathon to
raise funds for spinal chord
research is increasing in momentum
as it rolls across the continent of
Europe.
Hansen has travelled 8,300 miles
and raised $443,000 one third into
his 24,901 mile route around the
world. He has just left Switzerland,
where he climbed the gruelling
Alps, and is presently wheeling
across France. He has been receiving excellent coverage and support
from all countries travelled en
route. Recently, the Polish and
Czechoslovakian governments
covered Rick's expenses in their
respective countries.
Of the profits made from the
tour, once Hansen's expenses are
covered, half of the money earned
will go towards spinal research in
the countries that he toured, the
other half going to research in B.C.
The UBC intramural sports
University Gates Run is dedicated
to Rick Hansen's tour. Participants
are asked to donate $5 and sign our
big greeting card at the race centre
at the run. Both the card and the
donations will be mailed to Hansen
in Europe to go towards the Man in
Motion World Tour fund. Come
out and show your support for Rick
by running either the 3.0 km or 5.3
km distance — on Friday, October
18 at noon.
Last year's winners in the 3 km
distance were Carolyn Daubeny
(women's - 13:6.9) and Jung Yee
(men's - 10:45.5). The 5 km race
winners were Heidi Wippich
(women's - 22:22.6) and Steve
McMurdo (men's - 18:01.9).

tough competition from the
Seawolves. The T-birds led 5-0 early
in the second period only to see
their lead slip to 5-3 when the
powerful Anchorage team used
some fast skating to score three
goals at the end of the period.
Rebounding in the third period
the T-birds tenaciously scored again
to establish a solid lead which the
Seawolves couldn't catch up to
despite a goal in the last minute of
play.
UBC coach Fred Masuch while
pleased with Friday's win said that
the score reflected the many
penalties and rough play which
marred the game.
"The game was filled with altercations. In U.S. college hockey the
players are required to wear face
masks and, as a result of this, they
tend to carry their sticks very high.
When play gets intense they have a
tendency to use their sticks and our
players react adversely to this."
The altercations which Masuch
described may have also been a factor in determining the close score of
Saturday's game, where the
Thunderbirds had to come from
behind to win in overtime with a
score of 5-4.
After losing three players to
penalties in Friday's game UBC
trailed Anchorage 3-0 at the end of
the first period. Two goals in the second and another in the third tied
the game until the second to last
minute of play when the Seawolves
scored to take a 4-3 lead. A minute
and some split-second stickhandling
and passing later UBC scored and
forced the game into overtime with
Al Pevich scoring the winning goal
early.
Despite the close scores and the
loss of three players Masuch said
the UBC team has gained some
valuable experience against some
very high level competition in this
series and is pleased with the outcome of the two games.
The Thunderbirds can rest up with
some confidence before their
Canada West season opener against
the University of Alberta Golden
Bears in Edmonton next weekend.
Their Canada West home opener is
on Oct. 25 when they host the
Calgary Dinosaurs at 7:30 p.m. in
Thunderbird Arena.

Rowers chase UVic
By MURRAY JOHNSON
UBC squeaked by to beat UVic
by one second in the mens'
heavyweight coxed four in the fall
Invitational Regatta, held at Burnaby Lake on Saturday, October
12. This 3.5 kilometre race marked
the start of the 1985-86 varsity rowing season.
Varsity rower, John Phelps, said
the win could be attributed to good
technique and emphasis op long
smooth strokes at a rate of 28-29
strokes per minute. He added
Olympic rower Dave Ross in the
stroke seat significantly contributed
to the win.
"Dave dragged us along toward
the end and across the finish line,"
Phelps said.
The mens' heavyweight coxed
eight were defeated by a strong
UVic crew who crossed the Finish
line 10 seconds before a mixed
UBC/Vancouver Rowing Club
boat. In spite of their defeat, the
crew is confident about their
capabilities. John Kelsall, varsity
coxswain, says this is the best crew
in the last four years.
"All    the    rowers    are   good
atheletes and there are no slouches
at all," he said.
UBC mens' lightweight eight
finished three boatlengths in front
of UVic to win their event. Their
coxswain, Howard Joe, attributes
the win to a number of things. "We
had a lot of strong guys in the boat.
Our strategy was to whittle down
UVic's lead, be quick at the turn
and row through them," he said.
At Sunday's Deep Cove Regatta,
the UVic Vikings once again came
up with a win over the 'Birds.
Kelsall said it was a close race from
start to finish. "We were even with
UVic at the start. We came out fast,
holding the stroke rate up to 35-36
for a minute, then striding out to a
5 kilometre racing rate of 32-33 he
said. UBC held its own well through
the body of the race," he said.
"In the last 1000 Metres, they
gained the eight seats and open
water to finish three boat lengths in
front of us," Kelsall said.
The next regatias for the heavy
and lightweight crews will be in Victoria, the weekend of November 2
&3.
