Array Profs ask for RCMP surveillance ban
The federal government should
guarantee that the RCMP will not conduct
surveillance on university campuses, a
report released today by the Canadian
Association of University Teachers says.
The report, to be presented to the McDonald commission on the RCMP security
service, asks the government to publicly
declare a policy that there "shall be no
general surveillance of university campuses and no interference in any way with
the freedom of discussion so necessary to
university life."
The report says there has been tension
between members of the academic
community and the RCMP for the past 20
years.
"To a certain extent this is inevitable
given the role of the university as a critic
of society and a generator of discussion on
the merits of all political, economic and
social arrangements," explains the report.
"But this tension can also be destructive
and sterile. The university must operate in
a climate of freedom, not only for its own
benefit, but for that of society as well since
the critical function is a necessity in a free
society.
"Progress comes from the interplay of
ideas and the free competition that this
implies. It is important, therefore, that the
security forces do not confuse law-abiding
political dissent or legal but nonconforming behavior with subversion.
"To do so would constitute a threat to the
freedom of the universities and to that of
the society as a whole," says the report.
The government should also issue an
official policy statement emphasizing that
the RCMP must draw a distinction between legal political dissent and trade
union activity and criminal acts commonly called subversion, the report says.
The report also recommends that the
government ensure individuals will not be
victimized in applications for jobs or
security clearances by police or the armed
forces security branches because of legal,
sexual or personal relations.
The report attacks the federal government's security force with failing to
distinguish between left-wing legitimate
political movements and subversion.
In the 1960s the government's security
forces attempted to recruit informers
among students involved in the campaign
for nuclear disarmament. And in the 1970s
the RCMP seems to have considered
membership in the Waffle faction of the
NDP as subversive, says the report.
The report urges the government to
revive the concept of ministerial responsibility for the control of the security
forces.
"If the security forces commit major
violations of the law or if they perform
their duties incompetently, the minister
should be responsible to the house of
commons although individual complaints
should be handled by special tribunals."
"The RCMP defended its position by
stating that its duty was to search out
subversive activities and espionage
wherever these occurred and that certain
organizations were prone to communist
infiltration," says the report.
"The actions of the security forces with
regard to these organizations seemed to
some academics to confuse dissent with
subversion and to be designed to intimidate ane define permissible political
activities by discrediting such
organizations in a manner which had not
been countenanced by the house of commons.
"These events suggest both a lack of
political sophistication and a lack of
common sense," says the report.

Pickets hit at
Faculty Club
UBC steam engineers began picketing the
Faculty Club Monday, forcing some faculty
members to help wait on tables and assist
supervisory staff working in the kitchen.
The club's waiters, cooks and janitorial
staff, who are members of the Canadian
Union of Public Employees, respected the
picket, CUPE local 116 president Ken Andrews said Monday.
And Andrews said CUPE will support the
steam engineers' strike wherever they
decide to picket.
Administration president Doug Kenny
said he had lunch at the club Tuesday and
that it is operating a "bare-bones" service.
He said that although some faculty
members did not eat at the Faculty Club
Monday, for reasons of conscience, many
faculty members crossed the picket lines.
The 25 engineers, responsible for
operation and maintenance of the heating
plant, walked off the job Feb. 21 over a
contract dispute with the administration.
The heating plant is currently being
operated by supervisory personnel.
Bill Kadey, business manager of International Union of Operating Engineers, local
882, could not be reached for comment.

Conventions
profitability
doubtful'
By JEFF RANKIN
When the last exam has been written, and
all residence students have gone back home,
the UBC convention centre will have
thousands of summer rooms available for
conference guests.
But whether or not the centre can f UI them
profitably is questionable.
John Burns, manager of the conference
centre, said Monday the centre has already
booked over 80,000 bed-nights for next
summer, an increase of 6,000 over last
summer's total.
"We don't expect a large profit," said
Burns, "but we do expect some profit and it
will go towards offsetting residence costs for
winter students."
But Moe Sihota, former student board of
governors member said he had a less optimistic view.
"Housing lost $250,000 from last April to
January," said Sihota. "And most of that
was due to loss in convention business."
"It (the 6,000 bed-night increase) won't
make a difference. The 6,000 beds will just
cover the increased costs for this year."
"I was not aware that there had been
losses last year," said John Burns, "but if
that's so then I don't expect a repeat;
bookings have gone well."
One answer to the problem of the centre's
losing money, said Sihota, would be to
reserve an increased amount of the housing
for students staying over the summer.
"Last year they (the centre) ran one tiny
ad in The Ubyssey, and even then they got 50
more students applying than rooms were
reserved for."

UBC marches to a different beat
By TOM HAWTHORN
UBC administration president Doug
Kenny says he will not attend an unemployment rally in Victoria March 30 and doubts
the university will be closed for the student
march.
In a March 14 letter to the Alma Mater
Society unemployment committee, Kenny
says no useful purpose would be served if he
personally participated in the rally.
Kenny's response drew bitter criticism
from committee chairman Lome Rogers,
who earlier demanded that Kenny close the
university so students could attend the rally.
Rogers said Monday it is unfortunate
Kenny did not want to participate.
"It's as if Kenny thinks writing a letter to
the minister of labor was enough to contribute to the (unemployment) campaign.
"It's good, but not good enough."
In the letter Kenny restated his "deep
concern" about government cutbacks
eliminating 300 student research jobs at
UBC this summer. Kenny and the board of
governors have voiced their disapproval of
the cutbacks to labor minister Allan
Williams.
Rogers said it is extremely important that
the university be closed so students could
attend the rally without missing classes. As
of Monday, fewer than 60 students had
signed for free transportation to Victoria
provided by the B.C. Federation of Labor
and the UBC Alma Mater Society.
The B.C. Fed is sponsoring the rally
against unemployment and is demanding
government action to create jobs.
"I'm still optimistic, it's just that some
people don't want to make the commitment.
This shows the importance of closing the
university," said Rogers.
Kenny says in the letter he doubts the
university will be closed for the rally
because the senate has resisted proposals to
do so for events in the past.
"Many senators feel the academic year is
already shortened by statutory holidays and
the mid-term break and that further
closures only serve to disrupt lectures and
laboratories."
Kenny did say he referred the matter of a
special board meeting to board chairman
George Morfitt.
Morfitt said Monday he questions the
advantages of closing the university.
"We don't want to take the wrong attitude," he said. "The board has already
gone on record for opposing job cutbacks,
and there is a question whether further
action will have an adverse or beneficial
effect on our position."
Morfitt said the decision about whether to
hold a special board meeting will be made in
the next few days.
The poor student response to the unemployment campaign has not dampened the
committee's enthusiasm, said Rogers.
"The important thing is the lobby itself.
"Many people just don't want to make the
decision now. It's understandable many
students have not come out because of
prevailing attitudes at UBC," he said.
A march at Queen's Park in Toronto
Friday against education cutbacks and unemployment drew more than 10,000
protesters following a series of university
occupations in Ontario.
Despite the poor turnout at UBC, Rogers
said the response has been better at Simon

Nfld. students to protest cutbacks
ST. JOHN'S (CUP) — Students
at Memorial University began
planning action Monday to protest
inadequate government funding
for the university and student aid
changes announced in a provincial
budget Friday.
The university recommended an
operating grant increase of about
eight per cent, but will receive just
over four per cent in total increases over last year's funding
levels.
University president Mo
Morgan said March 13 fee increases are "very likely" as a
result of the government decisions,
although he was unable to say how
much of an increase students can
expect.
He said the university will have
to look hard in all areas, but noted
"there is a high degree of inflexibility" cutting back the institution's budget in the short term.
The provincial government also
announced loan requirements for
provincial grants would be raised
$250, forcing students to borrow
$700 before they are eligible for
grants under the provincial bursary plan.
Morgan said the university has
been under an austerity program

But Kadey said Feb. 22 that the
dispute arose because of the administration's position on arbitration.
He said then that the union wants
arbitration only on wages while the
university is insisting on arbitration for all outstanding issues
between the union and the administration.
He also said then that the purpose of the strike was not to disrupt
the activities of students,
professors or other unions.
The steam engineers are
responsible for operation and
maintenance of the university's
heating systems. Before the strike
Kadey said the union was hoping
for cold weather to aid the strike.

most protesters to sign up shortly
before the March 30 rally.
A panel discussion on the
problem of student unemployment
will be held in SUB auditorium this
Thursday, and Rogers said attendance figures will be closely
noted.
Kenny says he has no objection
to voluntary student participation
in the rally, despite his refusal to
participate.
"Let me assure you that I will do
everything in my power in the
coming weeks to ensure that additional and adequate funds will be
available from provincial and
federal sources to support the
summer employment program for
students," says Kenny.

for two years, and added he expects it will be much more difficult
to meet the university's non-deficit
requirement this year than
previous years.
He said the administration's
worst fears were a six per cent
increase, which would be approximately the same increase
received by Maritime universities.
Due to the timing of the information, Morgan said, the
university will not be able to cut
salaried faculty and staff, but will
have to look hard at other, non-
salaried areas of expenditure.
Annette Clarke, a Memorial representative on the executive of the
Atlantic Federation of Students,
said March 13 an ad hoc committee
of students is making plans to
protest the action, but is not sure
what form the action wuT take.
Clarke said students had no
knowledge of the severity of the
budget position until late Friday.
But she indicated students would
protest the move before the end of
classes, possibly in conjunction
with AFS-NUS demonstrations in
Halifax, Sydney and Yarmouth
March 30.
The provincial budget also included a $750 grant that would
match the money students gave to
the university last month to assist
start-up costs for a new library.

The government indicated it would
also match dollar for dollar
university funding for the library
which will cost $15 million to a total
of $7 million.
The university will have to
launch a national drive to make up
the remainder of the costs for
building the new library, but
Morgan said construction on the
new facility should start this year.

Blind UBC comedian
works 'lonely' stage
By GREG EDWARDS
"Got any jokes about education
students?"
"No, you've got to consider I'm
rather vulnerable here."
"So, a joke's a joke."
"Well, education students are
tragic."
"What makes 'em tragic?"
"The education system!"
"But I've got lots of jokes about
engineers: Knew a young
education girl who broke her
engagement to an engineer
because she learned he was
bridging the gap between himself
and other people."
Such is the humor of Al Currie,
the blind cashier and professional
comedian who operates the CNIB
glossettes factory they almost
went broke!"
The customer, an education
student with the look of defeat
about her, turns away with a
quizzical expression on her face,
shrugs, and goes on her way.
She returns later with glossettes
in hand, and says, "Geeze Al, I
used to like glossettes 'til I figured
out what your remark meant."
Al chortles.
Al became a comedian in a
roundabout way. He started work
articling to a lawyer, but both his
deteriorating eyesight, and his
boss being jailed seven years for
bank robbery ended AI's law
career. He later worked as a
cowboy peeling broncos, pitched.
"I sat in my room for six months
practising with a tape recorder before I had the courage to approach
an agent about going on stage."
counter in the education building
by day, and works legions, night
clubs, parties and conventions as a
comedian by night.
AI's constantly 'bouncing' his
comic lines off his customers. He
enjoys a chocolate bar sale that
becomes an exchange of wit. If his
customers don't engage him in a
humorous exchange, he'll quite
likely take the initiative. His
remarks can be devastating.
A student approaches his stand
and glumly demands: "A package
of glossettes."
The transaction is simple. The
customer hands Al a two dollar
bill, telling him:  "Two dollars."
He counts the change, and with
the sale about: to end without a
joke, Al hurls out his remark: "Till
the bunny rabbits discovered the
hay, picked tomatoes, fished
commercially, and has been a boxcar bum and a soldier. He's worked
at the education building for 12
years.
It's just the kind of background
Al felt a comedian should have. So,
because he'd always enjoyed the
comedian role among his friends,
and wondered if he could be a
professional comedian, he began
another career as a comedian.
"I started professional comedy
late, seven years ago," he says. "I
always wanted to tell stories on
stage, which I did at friends'
parties, especially dialect stories. I
thought of doing it on stage."
"I sat in my room for six months
practising with a tape recorder
before I had the courage to ap
proach an agent about going on
stage."
Performing professionally
means being responsible for an act
that people have paid to see, he
explains, and if the comedian 'dies'
(a word Al uses to describe an act
that fails) while he's on stage, or he
runs out of material, or his
audience acts up, or there's a
disturbance, there's no way the
comedian can get off the stage
without first completing the 12 or
14 minutes scheduled for his act.
It's 12 minutes of 'dying' by the
second, the minute: it's a slow
death.
"The stage is one of the loneliest
places to be: one person on stage,
no gimmicks, nothing, just the
comic, and his humor. I felt a deep
tinge the first time I went in front
of an audience."
"I was really shaky. When I went
out on stage the MC had to hold the
microphone, because I didn't even
know what the hell to do. But the
show went over really well."
Encouraged and thrilled by the
success of his first show, Al experienced what he describes as
'death' during his second show by a
comedy of errors. The MC was
called away to guide a drunken
guitar player down a flight of
stairs, and a fight broke out in the
audience between two other
drunks.
"Being blind I was totally
unaware of these two disturbances
going on in the audience. The
audience was more interested in
the fight, and the MC didn't get
back, and I ran overtime with my
act. I was supposed to be up there
for 10 minutes, and I was up there
for 17 minutes."
"I not only died publicly, I died
internally, I died every way I could
possibly die. I didn't know how to
excuse myself, or get off the stage.
Student rag faces shutdown
after heated council debate
HALIFAX (CUP) — After a
heated debate at Sunday's
student council meeting, the Dalhousie Gazette did not make any
headway in its fight to complete
its publishing schedule for the
year.
The Dalhousie University
student council originally refused
to reconsider the motion to close
the paper, but after the Gazette
staff stormed out and returned
with a statement of its position,
council decided to discuss the
matter.
Council treasurer Gail Rudder-
ham insisted that the Gazette
would go over budget and that it
was not possible for the paper to
print two break-even issues.
The motion to rescind the
original motion to close down the
paper after the Thursday issue
received a simple majority but
needed two-thirds to pass.
The Gazette plans to continue
publishing.
Editor Valerie Mansour said,
"we told council that even if we
are over budget, which we don't
exactly believe, we can run our
last issues on advertising
revenue incurring very few costs.
"Since they refuse to let us do
that, we will do it without them.
We have a responsibility to the
students on this campus to
continue publishing, and we are
not going to let their ridiculous
bookkeeping stop us."

CURRIE . . . blind comedian runs education building concession
If I'd had 10 or 15 shows under my
belt by that time I would have
known what to do, but I didn't know
what to do. And, finally when the
MC came back he was upset, he
said he was sorry and all the rest/
"It just about killed me as a
professional comic. I didn't want to
go back and do any more shows.
But I did, and I'm still doing
them."
"I suppose I remember those two
shows — the first and second —
more clearly than any others."
Audience reactions are important to a performer, especially
a comedian. If the audience doesn't
laugh a comedian has to obviously
make them laugh. Laughing is just
about the only gauge of a comic's
success.
"There are a lot of people who I
call loud-smilers. People who sit
there grinning from ear to ear.
They look like slit watermelons.
That had me beat at first as a blind
comic. If you can't see them
smiling, you don't know they're
reacting favorably. But the tipoff
for me is that the audience is quiet
in between the stories. This tells
me they're reacting even though I
don't get too much of a laugh at the
ends of lines."
"And, so, I realize I'm getting
hone, but it isn't quite what they
want to hear. But they want to hear
something. I know I'm not quite
hitting their funny buttons. They're
giving me a break, and it is a
break. So, I switch lines very
subtly. I go to bluer stories, or to
dialect stories."
A comic has to memorize at least
three or four scripts, he explains,
in order to make a subtle switch in
the approach to an audience.
"Another thing I do to find out if
my audiences are giving me their
full attention is I always measure
the front of the stage. The stages
are usually about four feet high. I
measure this off with my cane
when I first go up, and I have my
toes usually three or four inches
from the edge of the platform."
"And, if I don't think they're
watching, or paying full attention,
or I just want to find out what my
audience is doing, or I want to find
out the size of the audience, I'll
take a half step forward without
actually stepping forward, and
everybody yells at once because
they think I'm going to walk off the
edge of the stage."
"It's an attention-getter. It's one
of the dirty little stunts I learned to
pull off on my own."
Timing scripts is an important
aspect of comedy. He explains,
he'll often perfect the timing of his
scripts with his Brail watch.
For writing and rehearsing, Al
uses  a  tape  recorder:   "I  tape
almost every show I do, and listen
to my own tapes until they become
an integral part of me."
Al says he rarely knows how he'll
open his routine until he's actually
in front of the audience, and like
most comedians he'll often open
with a line as if he's relating a
story about something that had
just happened to him on the way to
his performance. But quite often
his opening will be quite spontaneous and suggested to him by
the moment's circumstances.
"One time I was speaking to an
insurance group, and I didn't know
how I was going to start off until I
got there. It was just before the
NDP government took over the car
insurance business, so I started off
by saying: "You're the happiest
group of future unemployed I've
ever seen." They just loved that
opening line. I just tossed it off the
top of my head."
"By talking to an
audience I get a
lift, I'Uriseto
the mark. But by
myself, I j u s t
don't"	
For Al comedy is not a solitary
endeavor: it's quite social. He
explains comedy writing as
"rubbing two heads together. I
often sit down by myself to write
and it doesn't do too much good. I
have to get out and talk to people
and listen to them. And, I get ideas
from them. They'll say something,
and I'll cap it, and they'll say
something more, and so on."
"Thinking for comedy is a two-
way street. It's something I can't
do in isolation. That's why I got so
sick of talking to the tape recorder
after three months. I wasn't getting any reaction from it. I was
always getting my own played
back at me. It was dead air. No lift.
By talking to an audience I get a
lift, I'll rise to the mark. But by
myself, I just don't. I'm out flat"
Al doesn't write political humor.
He explains that his comedy may
"touch on" politics. But he prefers
his themes of fear, nudist colonies
and whatever he may read about in
the newspaper.
"I can add almost anything to a
script like that, and keep changing
it. But a political animal I'm not. I
hate all politicians with equal
vigor, so I couldn't be able to give a
comedy routine on politics." Page 4

Unemployed shore up profits
Yes, it's getting to that
time of year again — the time
when us students find out
what we are going or not
going to do this summer. For
many students, there will be
no job or an unstimulating
job which provides meager
wages. With unemployment
figures over the one million
mark now, the summer looks
anything but encouraging.
For many students, a lack
of luck with summer jobs
will mean no return to classes
next fall, or perhaps a term
of living in squalor with
inadequate food money and
no beer money. For those
unfortunate students, unemployment will mean more
than just another boring
political debate or another
statistic in the newspaper.
The reasons for unemployment are complex, but
in a nutshell they boil down
to inadequate government
efforts to shore up a failing
private  enterprise  economy.
Inflation, fueled by rising
oil costs, prevents governments from using previously
tried Keynesian policies to
keep people on the job. The
public is confused, and business is being given a freer
hand to dictate to the government how to run the
economy. Their solution,
which has been shown a
failure many times over,
especially during the 1930s,
is to hold the line on
government spending. But it
isn't working.
Inflation persists, and now
the greatest number of Canadians since the depression
are without jobs. But still the
conservative howl persists,
despite the latest failure of
tight-money policies. No
relief is in sight.
Unemployment  has  been
masked to a certain extent
because of social welfare
schemes, which are hated by
economic conservatives but
are perhaps the strongest
support capitalism has today,
and by the fact that many
have more than one person in
the labor force(This reflects
the inability of the economy
to properly provide for working people).
Governments have tried to
fuel the economy with tax
cuts to corporations — but
there has been no stimulation. And while the economy
is     stagnant,     corporations

declare   bigger   profits   than
ever before.
Something more dangerous and insidious than alleged avaricious demands by
unionized labor is screwing
up the economy.
The hunger of the larger
corporations for money is
killing off whatever remains
of so-called free enterprise
more surely than any Marxist
could hope. Small businessmen are being stomped on by
the corporate giants.
Students can make a go
with their own business, but
the rate of business failure is
higher than ever. If you're
skeptical of these facts, compare with the much larger
number 10 years ago.
What is occurring is corporate socialism — socialism
without any benefits to most
of us. There is more money,
but a larger proportion of it
is falling into fewer hands.
The only way our job
situation can be improved is
through direct job creation.
Depending on private enterprise to do it will be futile —
job creation interferes with
profits.
But even direct job creation can only postpone the
date when radical changes
will be needed on our economic system. How radical
they are will depend on how
soon we the people decide to
put our foot down.

Write Cullen. save refugee's life
Galindo Madrid is a 22-year-old
Chilean refugee here in Vancouver, at present desperately
fighting a deportation order issued
by the department of immigration
in Ottawa.
Madrid jumped ship last May in
the hope of obtaining political
asylum in Canada, but his application has been refused. If the
deportation order is successful in
forcing Madrid's return to Chile,
he is certain to face imprisonment
and probable death.
Madrid has been a student leader
and an active supporter of
president Salvador Allende, who
was assassinated in 1973 in the
CIA-aided military coup of 1973.
After the coup, Madrid was drafted
into the army for two years' duty,
during which time his tasks involved cleaning up torture rooms
in a concentration camp.
At the camp, he observed corpses dumped into open pits,
execution stands and instruments
of torture. He testified that most of
the corpses had been mutilated,
with broken jaws and smashed
skulls.
Madrid decided to leave Chile
when he was called up for duty
several months after his first discharge. He escaped just over a
year ago, which makes him guilty
of desertion according to Chilean
law. The Canadian immigration
department, which rejected
Madrid's appeal, has ordered him
to find another country to go to,
with no reason given.
After the efforts of the B.C.
Federation of Labor and various
other groups, his deportation order
has been temporarily stayed. But
there are virtually no cases of
reversals of deportation orders
which have reached this  stage.
Madrid's stay does not mean the
deportation order has been
reversed.
The Chilean junta, undisputably
one of the most brutal on earth, is
not likely to take kindly to him
after his efforts to publicize the
situation in Chile. UBC students
should make known their opposition of Madrid's deportation to
immigration minister Bud Cullen
as soon as possible. Remember,
Madrid's life may depend on your
action or inaction.

Help English evaluation
Recently, concerned English students formed a departmental
association. The Association of English Students intend to publish
next September an alternate calendar summarizing student
opinions of individual courses and instructors.
Over the next two weeks, students enrolled in second, third and
fourth year English courses will be given evaluation questionnaires
and computer cards to fill out. We ask students to complete (on
their own time) one card for each of their English courses. Completed computer cards should be dropped off in designated boxes in
Buchanan, Sedgewick and Main library.
The association's questionnaire is objective. Students' impressions of both courses and instructors will be correlated over the
summer and published in straightforward, statistical form.
The Association of English Students aims to provide organized
and influential representation benefiting all students taking
courses from the department. The alternate calendar is our first
step — the more input we get, the more relevant our publication
will be to students' programming decisions. If you are enrolled in
any English courses, by carefully filling out the Association's
evaluation cards you will help yourself, and all students like you, in
future years.

Govt, job creation
unemployment solution
By ROB MARRIS
Unemployment in Canada is officially 8.3
per cent right now. 1,007,000 people in this
country are officially unemployed. In B.C.
the irate is 8.4 per cent. For youth (defined as
those under age 25) the rate is twice as bad
as that facing those over 25.
In Newfoundland one in four youths who
are ready and willing to work cannot get
work. Gone forever are the days — if indeed
they ever existed — when young
Newfoundlanders could all head out to jobs
in Syncrude country. In B.C. the youth
situation is slightly better, but not much.
Hidden behind these stark figures is the
agony and despair of more than one million
Canadian workers and their families;
Canadians who can hardly afford the
necessities of life, let alone any luxuries:
have you ever tried to bring up a family on
the amount of unemployment insurance
cheques? Not to mention the welfare you'll
be on when your UIC runs out after a year.
That's if you can get UIC, for if you're a
young person who has never had a job for
twelve weeks — and many of today's youth
have not — then you won't qualify for UIC.
Imagine the chronic boredom that sets in
after a few weeks of unemployment: no
nights out, nor movies, because you can't
afford them; reading library books all day
gets monotonous after a while; daytime
television is even more moronic than the
evening pap ...
Day in day out you go through the
classifieds, getting more angry and more
frustrated by the minute. You find nothing,
not even at the lousy three bucks an hour
that Young Canada Works pays, nor the
dollar a day that the paramilitary federal
Katimavik program pays. Even those jobs
are spoken for. As the Tory employment
critic pointed out this Tuesday, for each and
every job vacancy, there are 31 unemployed
workers available and willing to fill it.
How does all this relate to students?
Well, for a start the student situation is at
least as bad" as for Canadian under 25. Not
that as many of us have families to support
— although as the mean age of students
rises, increasing numbers of students do —
but we're expected to save money in the
summer to help pay for our continued
education in the fall.
By July last year, official figures listed 15
per cent of students as still unemployed, and
that figure doesn't include those working
part-time, nor those who- had given up
looking because they knew there wasn't a
job available. For women, the situation was
and will be even worse.
Look around you now: for every six
students you see, one of them is going to be
unemployed this summer — and that one
could likely be you yourself.
What can be done to combat these levels of
unemployment? Three ideas often put
forward as solutions need to be disposed of
right away. The first is that more training
schemes will help. They won't. Such
schemes merely result in more qualified
unemployees. Unemployed university
graduates know this as well as anyone.

Nothing stops students from making
their own jobs with some initiative
B> CHRIS NIWINSKI
Recently two articles about student employment appeared in
tills column One. by Moe Sihota Jan 31', was a collection of
dubious statistics; the other, by Lorne Rogers, <Feb.28), a
rousing call to protest. While both articles expressed concern
over unemployment, neither offered an> useful information
regarding students' options for a job
It is easv to bitch and complain, but much harder to come up
with practical suggestions which might help the student cope
with the unemployment situation.
Let me deal with Sihota's article first. If I were to believe
every detail in the article, then I might as well join the unemployment line before even trying to find a job after I graduate.
Following <tre the opening statements of Sihota's article--
statistics which he used to reach questionable conclusions.
"Statistics Canada estimates that only eight per cent of all
university grads find jobs in their specific field upon
graduation "
Not only is this a bureaucratic estimate, but it does not state
how manj. students actually find jobs at all.
"A mini-survey b> the Toronto Star has revealed that only
four of 50 new graduates were absolutely sure that they will
receive a job upon graduation."
When was this survey taken? If the survey was taken m
September of the students' graduating year, then four is a pretty
high figure, whereas if it was taken in May. then they had a
serious problem. What faculty were they in" How large was the
survey sample size?
"The Canada Council on Social Development has reported
that 17 per cent of all university graduates earn less than $7,000
annually."
How many of those graduates arc employed on a full time
basis? If we are dealing with "all university graduates." then
we can infer that 83 per cent are not only employed, but making
more than $7,000 annually. This statistic could be med to argue
that university graduates find work easily-tihe opposite to the
argument presented by Sihota.
"Thirty per cent of those living below the poverty line are
under 25 years of age and single, and 38 per cent of those have
had post-secondary education."
A quick calculation shows that in fact 38 per cent of 30 per
cent, or 11.4 per cent of single people living below the poverty
line and under 25 have post-secondary education, lliis is a much
lower figure than the bare 30 per cent and 38 per cent imply.
Chris Niwinshi, civil engineering 2, is a senator-at-large.
i   Perspectives is open to all members of the UBC community.
How many of the 11.4 per cent finished their post-secondary
education?
"One-quarter of all those unemployed today in Canada are
between 20 and 24."
How many of those are university graduates'* Without that
information the statistic has no place in an article concerned
with unemployment among university graduates.
What I have covered so far is about the first tenth of Sihota's
..MlJ«ln     T  Un..n «a*   rtAl   »W*t  HIW..M   ....  *Wa «nn«.*..  I-a  «*A   «..*._ Ik*.   _«*.*
tAi iikii.-. i imvv iiul gut ui*; mum ui  inc.- mizi £v ui |£u utn  uic irai
of the article in detail Among other conclusions, Sihota claims
that engineers and commerce students arc no more employable
upon graduation lhan students in arts and science. I would like
to know where the heck he got that one, because I have information which clearly indicates the opposite.
Wh> paint ableak picture based on ambiguous facts? I am as
concerned as anyone that unemployment is rising in this
country. I am not convienced from Sihota's article that my
chances of finding a job as a university graduate in two years'
time will not be better lhan for someone without a university
education or vocational training.
The more immediate problem for most students is the apparent lack of summer jobs. Lorne Rogers' didactic attitude is
that we must rise up in numbers and protest in the form of a
rally in Victoria in order to force the government to create more"
summer jobs.
This didacticism is going to accomplish nothing. He does not
give us one solid suggestion about finding jobs. It is my belief
that there are jobs to be found, and ours being a free enterprise
society, nothing prevents a student from creating his own job.
Bear with me and I will give you a few examples of how a
student can create a summer job.
I realize that some students have searched in \ ain for summer
work, and that there is a need for more jobs, but we need not rely-
on the government for direction. The individual, rather than
wait for a government handout (such as the Young Canada
Works Program'' should take things into her/his own hands and
either do thelegwork necessary to find a job, or create one on
his/her own.
Sound simple? Perhaps even moronic and naive? Try it first,
and then come back and complain to me. So here is my list of
methods and tactics to get yourself a summer job. It is by no
means complete, and not ali ideas will be possible for everyone.
All the suggestions have worked {for people I know of, or for
myself).
Start looking early, like November instead of April.
See page 10: TAKE
A second idea often proposed is that immigration is a cause of unemployment
among Canadians. Alas for those in favor of
more restrictive (which has meant racist,
historically) immigration procedures, not
so. For at least four years now, immigrants
can only come to Canada to work either as
relatives/fiances etc. of Canadians (not a
large number), or as specialists taking a job
for which not one qualified Canadian can be
found.
The third and most persistent 'cure' put
forward is that the unemployed, including of
course students, can all rush out and create
their own jobs. Sure, an individual student
may manage this; indeed, some students do
this every summer. However, if all
unemployed students did this one of two
things would happen (probably both): first,
earnings would be bid down to about a buck
an hour for the student gardeners/house-
painters of this province, because
remember there's no minimum wage for
those who employ themselves. *
Secondly, those who are year-round patio-
builders/painters (and who probably have
families to support) would quickly go out of
business: it's like a balloon — you can push
it in one place, but it will surely spring out
elsewhere if you do.
Market demand in the economy must be
jacked up. Corporate tax breaks—such as
the $1,245 billion handed out in the March
1977 federal budget — don't create this increased demand. There's nothing to stop
these tax breaks being translated into
higher dividends for the foreign
shareholders who own many of the corporations.
The one sure-fire method of increasing
market demand is for the government to
create jobs directly. This puts money into
poorer people's pockets, tnoney they will
spend within Canada on such basics as food
and shelter. With well over 20 per cent of
Canadian manufacturing capacity idle at
the present time, we have the capability to
produce the goods to meet this demand. But
the ball has to be gotten rolling, and
government job creation is the most logical
means: more jobs means more total income
in Canada, which means a higher market
demand, which means will create more
jobs, which will mean . . . get the picture?
Fortunately for students, somebody is
dong something about this situation. Unfortunately for you, that somebody isn't the
government — who can afford to create jobs
—but the B.C. Federation of Labor, who can
only protest — loudly. The Alma Mater
Society's ad hoc committee on unemployment is joining them. We believe it's
important that everybody who wants a job
can get one, and that everybody includes
students. We don't agree with one AMS
student representative assembly member
who said "I think unemployment is a dead
issue; it's been flogged to death." Nor, we
suspect, would the 1,007,000 people in this
country who wer officially listed as
unemployed in February 1978. (The
member is science rep Eddy Auersperg, in
case you're interested)
What can you do as an individual?
Firstly, you can write expressing your
concern to your MP (postage free) and to
your MLA. Secondly, you can read the AMS
ad hoc committee on unemployment's
literature, and find out about the March 30th
rally. Thirdly, you will be welcome at
committee meetings to find out more.
The B.C. Federation of Labor's rally will
take place March 30th in Victoria. It is timed
to co-incide with the opening of the Spring
Session of the B.C. legislature. For those
wishing to attend the rally, we have already
arranged free passage to and from Victoria,
via buses and the special ferry booked by
the B.C. Federation of Labor. The more of
you show up, the more pressure is put on the
government, and the more likely they are to
do something about unemployment. If
nobody hollers, the government will do
nothing, it's as simple as that.

hoc committee on unemployment and is a

Unemployment
is your business
Out of work with nothing to
do? A panel discussion on the
unemployment problem will be
held Thursday at noon in the SUB
auditorium. The discussion is
sponsored by the student representative assembly's ad hoc committee on unemployment.
Navel gazing
The best rag west of Blanca is
about to pack it all in.
In honor of the arrival of
spring. The Ubyssey staff has
decided to publish only two more
. issues so harried reporters and
authoritarian editors can trudge
over to Buchanan Tower and beg
foregiveness to the power-that-be
for late assignments.
The   last   chance   for   Tween
Hot flashes
Classes, Hot Flashes, and letters to
the editor will be this Wednesday,
March 22, and a week from this
Thursday, (March 30) in the big
end-of-the year extravaganza
issue.
Remember, get your notices in
or you'll have to wait another six
months to complain.
Women's place
Are you a woman who needs
help finding work? A Woman's
Place is a free multi-lingual service
that helps women find their place
in the working world. The service
offers counselling in choosing
careers and finding employment
relevant to each woman's studies
and future goals. No appointment
is needed. Drop in any time
between 8:30 and 4:30 Monday
to Friday in the Vancouver Post
Office building, second floor at
125 East 10th Ave.
Dave raves
Do you remember when it was
in to hate the NDP?
Well, now all we've got to get
mad at are premier Bill Bennett,
human resources minister Bill Vander Zalm and their motley crew of
car-dealing Socreds.
And don't think the NDP
won't take the opportunity to
crap on the other party now that
the shoe is on the other foot.
Opposition leader Dave Barrett
will do just that Wednesday at
noon in the SUB auditorium.
Dieting Dave will procrastinate on
speaker Ed Smith's frolics, Socred
fiscal policy and the existentialism
of crying upper middle class
university students.
Former education minister
Eileen Dailly will definitely not
be in attendance.

recognized University, have the necessary subject preparation in
two approved teaching areas for secondary schools, be prepared

University and participating School District personnel in early
May. Selected candidates will then attend a week's orientation in
their school district in late May, attend UVic for July and August
course work, train in their school district from September, 1978
to April, 1979, and complete their academic work on UVic
campus during May/June, 1979. Successful candidates are then
recommended for a Teaching Certificate.

Cup title eludes
Rugger T'birds
SPOR TS
The Vancouver Rugby Union
Rep side capitalized on a disciplined, defensive style of play to
score two second-half tries and
down the UBC Thunderbirds 14-4 in
the final McKechnie Cup match of
the year at Brockton.
The Reps finished as runners-up
in Cup competition to the Van
couver Rugby Union Crimson Tide,
who beat the Fraser Valley Reps
36-0 in Victoria Saturday in Cup
round-robin play.
The 'Birds came out strong in the
first half and had an early lead to
show for their effort. Fullback
Graham Taylor took the ball inside
the UBC half of the field and ran
through the middle of half a dozen
Vancouver defenders before
yielding possession to fly half Gary
Hirayama who outraced everyone
40 metres for the try.
Play in the first half was pretty
well paced by the forwards with a
lot of hard hitting featured. The
UBC scrum played credibily,
getting the ball from the loose
effectively. The backfields were
fairly evenly matched with neither
side able to press a lasting advantage and a lot of kicking.
Unfortunately for the 'Birds, the
forward play in the second half was
the antithesis of the first. The
Vancouver Reps snatched the
momentum immediately and used
their pack to build a position of
THUNDERBIRD LIGHTWEIGHTS.
Hosts take honors at
20-team rowing meet
UBC won the three feature races at the UBC Spring Regatta Saturday
at Burnaby Lake, at which 400 athletes from 20 clubs competed. The hosts
took the points title with 152, while runner-up Lake Washington Rowing
Club had 90, the University of Victoria 72, Washington State University 60
and Victoria. City Rowing Club 57.
In the men's elite eights, UBC led the Vancouver Rowing Club off the
start. The two teams pulled away from the pack, with UBC in the lead.
In the third 500 of the 2,000-metre race the leaders lost some poise, but
the Rowing Club was unable to catch up and UBC won in 6:09,2.9 seconds
ahead of Vancouver.
In the men's lightweight eights, UBC finished in 6:43, swamping runner-up Brentwood College by 12.5 seconds.
The UBC Jayvees won the men's senior A eights in 6:29, eight seconds
in front of UBC lightweights. UBC also won the elite fours.
But in the women's events, Canadian and U.S. national team composite
crews from, Burnaby Lake and Lake Washington dominated the
heavyweights.
In the women's lightweights UBC took the trophies for both the fours
and eights.
Next weekend the UBC men and women head to Corvallis, Ore., to race
on Willamette River in a dual meet with strong rival Oregon State
University.
Tired field hockey finals
mean UBC shares title
The UBC Jayvee women's field hockey team are co-champions with the
Doves in the Vancouver Second Division after the two teams played to a
scoreless tie in the playoff final Saturdat at Trafalgar Park.
Excellent goaltending by Stacy Sainas in the early going prevented the
Doves from scoring as UBC got off to a shaky start. After 10 minutes UBC
settled down and dominated the rest of the half. Helen Sovdat was strong
in midfield, distributing the ball well as UBC used a hard-hitting game,
playing the ball down the wings to beat a slow Doves defence.
Neither team mounted a consistent attack in the second half and play
became scrappy The Doves kept the ball in UBC's end for long periods,
but could not penetrate the circle. Fullback Deb McCarter was steady for
UBC inside her own 25.
Once UBC got the ball out of their end they were far more dangerous
than the Doves and barely missed scoring on several occasions.
Field hockey action concludes for the year Saturday as the Thunderbirds play the Falcons at 11:30 a.m. at Empire Stadium.

The UBC Thunderettes hockey team finished its successful first season
Sunday with a 3-0 win over host Kitsilano in Vancouver women's ice
hockey league second division playoffs. UBC's playoff record was 3-1-2,
good for third spot in the second division.
Riley Park, which tied UBC 2-2 March 12, was the winner of the seven-
team round-robin competition.
The Thunderettes invite women from the intramural teams to practice
with them today and next Tuesday at 5 p.m. at rink two at the Winter

The University of Alberta Golden Bears jumped into a 3-0 lead, then
held on for a 6-5 win over the University of Toronto Blues Sunday in the
Canadian Intercollegiate Athletic Union hockey final in Moncton, N.B.
Kevin Primeau scored a pair of goals and had an assist for the Golden
Bears and was chosen as the most valuable player of the round-robin
tourney. Alberta beat UBC in a best-of-three western playoff final in
Edmonton the previous weekend.
take lead at spring regatta
dominance. The 'Birds were
pressed hard several times but
managed to turn back the Reps on
each occasion until fullback Ron
Whyte finally was able to score
what turned out to be the winning
try. Centre Rob Grieg converted.
UBC came right back after the
score and looked as if they were
about to break the game open with
some intelligent backfield play.
But they were twice turned back
from the goal line and the Reps
took the game away.
Cliff Jones scored Vancouver's
last try after the Reps had been
pressing UBC deep for several
minutes. Jones took the ball away
from UBC in a maul near the five-
metre mark and dove in for the try.
UBC's next game is Wednesday,
when it meets the University of
Victoria Vikings at UVic. The
'Birds play the Stanford University
Cardinals at 7:30 p.m. next Tuesday at Swangard stadium and
finish up with a match with the
University of California at

Take low wage
From page 5
Although Student Services (you
are aware that they can help you
find a summer job?) are helpful,
don't rely on them to find you a
summer job without putting in
considerable effort on your own.
Get out and hussle on your own in
addition to registering at Student
Services and checking their boards
periodically.
Prepare a resume and carry
copies of it on every job hunting
expedition. Ask someone who has
had success in job hunting to help
you prepare your resume.
Go directly to every company in
the field of your interest and ask
about summer work. Many employers who were not planning to
hire any students for the summer
will decide to hire an individual
because they were impressed by
his or her incentive in looking for a
job (don't tell me that is bull until
you have honestly tried). A
thousand government ads asking
employers to hire students are not
nearly as effective as one persuasive student talking to an
employer.
Initiative
Consider work in any field. If you
are willing to work in the bush,
there is a lot of work in the north,
particularly in Alberta. I know
many people who just hitchhike
north in the spring and ask around
for work. Very few have ever
returned unemployed. Talk to
someone who has tried this — he or
sne may be willing to share some
useful information with you.
Better a low wage than no wage.
It is an unfortunate fact that some
companies will take advantage of
people by paying a very low wage
for hard work. As a last resort,
minimum wages can hold you over
until you can find something
better. Even working at a McDonald's is better than nothing.
Are you mechanically inclined?
If so, set up a neighborhood bicycle
repair shop. There are hundreds of
bicycles that need fixing in every
neighborhood. The key here is
making your operation known. Ads
are cheap in local newspapers and
shopping centre bulletin boards
are free.
Relativity
Mowing lawns, housecleaning,
and baby-sitting are still good
ways to earn some money.
Start your own moving company.
The number of students who own
cars these days leads me to believe
that many could scrounge $500
between two or three of them to
buy an old pickup truck (yes,
Virginia, there are operable pickup
trucks which can be bought for
$500). The moving business is a
lucrative market.
By making your operation known
and charging around two-thirds of
what most moving companies
charge these days, you could make
more money, if you're lucky, than
most summer jobs would pay you.
It does take a lot of organization
and initiative, and you are taking a
bit of a chance.
There are always companies
looking for telephone solicitors and
door-to-door sales people. If you
have persuasive talents, this might
be a solution to your unemployment problem. On the other
hand, if you can hack door-to-door
sales and sell enough to make a
decent wage, you can probably talk
your way into a better job.
You can virtually guarantee
yourself a job if you hold an industrial first aid certificate. The
forest products industry has
always looked favorably on applications which list industrial first
aid under "certificates held," even
if the applicant is not a forestry
student. There are various courses
you can take which lead to such a
certificate. It costs money and
time to take these courses, but the
investment is worthwhile.
Use the theory of relativity to
your advantage. For those of you
who have never studied physics, as
well as for those of you who have,
the theory states that those who
have the relatives get the jobs. So
don't be proud, and ask any
relative who is working if there
might be a position open for the
summer where they work.
Caddy at a golf course.
Jobs as waitresses and waiters
are not as hard to get as others, but
are a lot harder on the feet.
Form a house painting company.
Many people will hire students to
paint their houses, both the interior
and the exterior. If a prospective
client doubts your ability, offer to
do one room as a trial, and if they
like the workmanship, they can
hire you to do the rest of the house.
Last year, a group of high school
students got together and rented
the Flamingo Theatre. They put on
a variety show using the talents
they had. It was a one- or two-night
stand, well publicized, and the
students involved made a good
profit.
Do you do your own work on your
car? Body repair? Make your
talents (arid 'reasonable rates')
known and turn them into profit.
Come up with a better idea than
the above. They are just guidelines
for a wealth of possibilities. I can
only guarantee one thing: if you
wait for the government to create a
summer job for you, you will wait a
long time.
Letters
Sensitivity can stop racism
Amazing! In reply to my letter
(March 9) urging Chinese and
other ethnic groups to be more
sensitive to both themselves and
one another, Barry Lam and BUI
Kolida (March 14) argue that the
problem should be solved by all of
us becoming less sensitive; that we
should "allow offensive gestures to
pass as outlets of racial tension."
His criticism is symptomatic of
that disease of the soul which I
called colonization. Others less
kind than I would call him a
banana.
That racial tension which we
both recognize is the result not of
foreigners taking jobs and raising
welfare costs as you suggest. It is
the result of the ignorance to be
found in the warped little mind of
the racist. Once you can accept this
simple little fact, it becomes clear
how ludicrous it is to assert that the
problem can be solved by
becoming less serious, less sensitive, and by swallowing insults.
Far from releasing tensions, this is
precisely what contributes to that
ignorance.
Ethnic jokes and slurs hurt all
people by making them less sensitive to one another. They hurt us
too unless we are completely
lacking in pride as Chinese people.

WHEN YOU LOOK GOOD
SO DO WE . . .
PRESCRIPTION
OPTICAL
You seem to suggest that this pain
is all in our minds, that if we could
just desensitize our minds enough,
it wouldn't hurt.
Thus you would condemn us for
protesting against insults, or,
heaven forbid, for standing up to
the racist to stop his evil ways, lest
we be seen as "another undesirable force." You further suggest to
Chinese people that "to gain a
sense of belonging, they should try
to integrate with the rest of us and
not to consolidate with your
'brothers and sisters.' "
That sounds like a threat and you
sound threatened. Barry, who do
you mean by "they? " Who is "us? "
What kind of "integration"
would we have on the terms
suggested by your friend Kolida?
Those terms could only limit our
horizons as human beings.
If our only way of dealing with
racism is to accept it and try to fit
into a racist world (which seems to
be the gist of your letter), what
kind of people would we be? We
would be adopting and living the
very stereotypes that the racists
are trying to impose on us. Integration without pride is the integration   of   the   house   slave
moving into the master's house.
I too grew up in the East End,
and I'm familiar with your reaction to racism. It's sick. You think
that by calling each other Jap,
Chink, Raghead, etc. enough times
these epithets will then cease to be
offensive? How? At what cost to
our humanity? Or that of the
racist? That's like asking people to
accept slaps on the face so that
they can develop calluses on their
cheeks.
Let me make it clear that I abhor
racists of any color. I would love to
see the day when we can all live
together in harmony and understanding. But that day will not
be hastened unless we all become
more sensitive to one another,
learn to accept our true identity
with pride, and respect each other
as equals.
Barry, I think you could gain a
lot of insight into both yourself and
into Chinese people by sitting down
with your parents to discuss
racism, their experience in this
country and their hopes for you.
Maybe you can start the discussion
rolling by calling them chinks.

Women and men were put here to live together
I am sick, sick, sick of feminism. After
reading the article, Capitalism Oppresses
Women in the March 14 issue concerning Val
Embree's lecture, I am even more ill.
Up til quite recently, my attitude towards
feminism was rather indifferent. There was
nothing for me in it. I was too busy learning
and trying to be a responsible human being
to worry about my status as a woman. After
all, the one person who had urged me to
further my education, who has believed in
my ability to do practically anything has
always been my father. He was -the one
person who laughed at my fears of being
unable to do certain things because I was
female.
Now that I think of it, it has largely been
Disappointed
Your decision to refuse to publish the
classified ad dealing with the "cry of the
aborted children" is a poor one. Given the
recent court of appeal judgment which
upheld the Vancouver Sun's right to reject a
Gay Alliance Toward Equality advertisement, I cannot deny that The Ubyssey
seems to have the legal right to withhold
from publication any material that it feels
might offend a portion of its reading
audience.
However I am disappointed that a student
newspaper, funded partially by student
financial contributions, feels the need to
'protect' some of its readers from a moral
viewpoint held by a substantial number of
students on this campus. I agree with Megan
Ellis, the Rape Relief worker who protested
its publication, that the ad was an 'emotion-
charged' statement.
I am sure that it was meant to be. Many
people are aware that the pregnant woman
is not the only individual whose legal and
personal rights are affected by a decision to
abort — the unborn child's rights are considered by many, myself included, to be just
as important and worthy of protection as the
right of its mother.
I cannot pretend to be sorry that the advertisement upsets people, or that it makes
a woman's decision to abort her unborn
child a more difficult and painful one. It is
undoubtedly easier for an individual to
comfort herself that her decision is the
correct one if she is encouraged to consider
only one viewpoint of the moral dilemma in
which she finds herself caught. It must be
painful to know that others will consider a
choice to abort the wrong decision, and that
it might indeed in her own particular circumstances tie the wrong choice.
It must be even more difficult to consider
all the ramifications of her decision. I agree
that the classified ad does not make the task
of a woman in the process of deciding
whether or not to continue a pregnancy an
easy one. Its wording was calculated to
provoke even more thought,, even more self-
interrogation, than is currently carried out.
But I respectfully disagree with Megan Ellis
that the ad was an 'affront' to any woman
deciding to have, or who has had an abortion. I know that it was not calculated to
insult or attack.
The people who ran this ad have a clear
understanding of the difficulty facing a
raped woman who finds herself pregnant as
a result, and moreover much compassion
for her. They simply desire that people not
forget the rights of the other individual
involved in this situation, namely, the unborn child.
Yes, Megan Ellis, the classified message
was 'emotion-charged.' Yes, it upsets
people. But I am nevertheless sorry that The
Ubyssey feels the need to take it upon itself
to censor its reading material, and hide a
viewpoint because the validity of the
emotion it expresses is too much for some of
its readers to handle.

Congratulations
I am writing to both thank and
congratulate your staff on its decision not
to run the messages advertisement re
aborted children. The ad, which appeared in

with a great deal of pleasure that I am
writing to you to say "thank you; for once

men who have taken the time to interest
themselves in and advise me on my career.
Perhaps some feminist out there will scoff
at me and snort that I've been lucky so far,
but I have also known men who did resent
any small claim I might have towards intelligence or capability. Usually, these were
people of very low self-esteem, and far more
worthy of my pity than my hatred.
Perhaps I'm being naive in saying that
any one person's chance of success in this
country is largely up to him or her. But often
fear of inadequacy or inability causes a
person to lay the blame at any other door
than his or her own. Feminists seem to
harbor an overwhelming anger, and in their
desire to release it they attempt to identify
an enemy they can lash out at in blind
unreasoning fury. With traditional mob
mentality, feminists have turned their
anger against men, and now of all things
against capitalism.
Val Embree forgets that exploitation of
women has existed for centuries in numberless societies, all of which did not embrace
capitalism. In fact, if one considers North
America as one of the last strongholds of a
watered-down version of capitalism, isn't it
strange that this 'oppressing' system has
done more to free women from menial
drudgery and the 'burden' of motherhood
than practically any other on the planet?
Are feminists optimistic enough to believe
that women in the USSR are liberated?
Would they be so optimistic if they had firsthand experience with this kind of liberation?
It is true that most Soviet women have jobs,
but they still end up rushing home at the end
of the day to make meals, do laundry and
shop. The government has had some difficulty convincing the Soviet man that these
menial tasks are now part of his domain as
well.
The Soviet woman also has the tendency
to choose jobs that are situated in close
proximity to her home and her children's
nursery school, rather than jobs that will
further her career.
Then, as she must spend her few free
hours doing housework, it is unlikely that
she will devote the time needed to train for
or hold down a job with more responsibility.
Thus, the higher the level of the job, the
fewer the women there are represented.
Instead women are found in large numbers,
sweating in the ranks of ditchdiggers and
street sweepers. It is true that most doctors
in the USSR are women, but there, the
medical profession is not one which provides
one with either status or money.
To be fair, I will agree that feminism has
played a great role in the breaking down of
resistance by the few unintelligent men who
cannot perceive the potential women have to
add to society and for some strange reason
resent female ambitions. But I have enough
regard for the 'other half' to believe that
most of them are reasoning creatures.
Aren't they more likely to be won over with
reason than hostility?
It is up to the women themselves to work
hard and prove through their actions that
they are indeed equal. Choosing villains to
sling mud at is a waste of time. The naming
of capitalism as the latest 'oppressor of
women' is historically ill-founded and based
very weakly on tired Marxian scripture.
Attacking one's fellow man will get us no
further.
Long ago it was necessary for the survival
of humanity that the male should help the
female as she toiled along with her brood of
infants. Now, just because a woman is free
from the 'burden' of childbearing doesn't
mean that the old interdependence can be
entirely put aside.
Whether one believes in God or not, the
fact remains that men and women were both
plunked down on this planet to live together.
It makes more sense that they should stand
together, work together and give each other
a hand now and then rather than squabbling
like a bunch of spoiled children.

Joke's humor depends on how its taken
To all those people who are offended at
racist jokes: First, I want to make it clear
that I do not support racism. I think it is
stupid. However, there will always be some
people who will feel their race is superior to
others. Of course they will make offensive
gestures, make racial jokes and make
stereotypes of people who belong to "inferior" races.
What do you do with these people? Beat
them up in hopes of them liking you better
and respecting your ancestory. Perhaps you
will want to get other people who were
discriminated against and rally, thus
segregating and calling attention to yourselves (a prime target for abuse). This may
work against governments, but not racists.

Life potential overlooked
This letter is written in reply to Megan
Ellis (March 16) and to express concern
about your refusing to run the ad that reads
"listen to the cry of the aborted children.
Their cry is a cry of terror. Heed their cry."
It seems that abortion is no longer a
debated issue. Is the moral correctness of
Emotional
I am writing in regard to a letter in last
Thursday's paper entitled Charged which
protested anti-abortion ads in The Ubyssey
as being upsetting to victims of rape contemplating an abortion. The article
described the ads as "emotion-charged"
which indeed, from the example given in the
letter, they seemed to be.
I think the medical, scientific question of
whether a fetus is human or not will
probably never be resolved. The question
has to be answered on an emotional level. If
you feel God endows every unborn child with
a soul at the time of conception, and if you
believe that life is as valuable as your own,
how can you remain silent, even at the risk
of upsetting a woman greatly after she's
been through the horrible experience of
being raped?

abortion so arguable that one can dismiss
"emotion-charged statements" to the
contrary? I don't believe so. Personally I
believe all human life is important regardless of potential.
Because prenatal life is unseen this makes
the potential of that life easily overlooked.
Would abortionists abort newborn infant life
if the baby would be an inconveniene or
emotional upset to the mother? I don't
believe they would, yet they are willing to
abort prenatal life for the same reasons.
Rape is a vicious crime and pregnancy is
very much a part of that crime. I can understand that any love for a resulting baby
would be difficult for the mother and that
the process of carrying the baby would be
traumatic, but there is, in my mind, another
issue to consider, the life (death) of the
prenatal infant. Deciding not to run the ad is
an affront to those who feel there is an unnecessary loss of life every time an abortion
is performed.
The Ubyssey has an obligation to present
both sides of an issue and give people the
opportunity to present and contest, points of
view, opinions and warnings, even if the
staff or editors do not share the opinion
expressed.

and_ asks me to launder his shirt with less
starch? There is a vast number of people
who are not what people would consider to
be racist yet come up to me with a racist
joke. It's all in how you take it. Consider it a
bad joke. It may be funny to others and
others can laugh at it over a beer.
In summation I say again, do not fight
these derogatory remarks. You will only put
yourself up on a pedestal in the line of fire
for more abuse. Even if a remark was
aimed to maim consider it a bad joke and no
harm is done.

Flippantly
The comments of Bill Kolida and Barry
Lam (March 14) distress me because of
their acceptance and, indeed, approval of
so-called ethnic jokes. Kolida and Lam seem
to think these "jokes" are harmless and
actually serve a useful purpose.
In reality, racism is perpetuated and
hatred is developed by the racial slurs
which, unfortunately, some people treat too
flippantly.
Racism, whether overt or under the guise
of a sophomoric joke (such as the one that
recently appeared in the Totem Park newsletter), is more than just offensive; it is a
vicious and destructive force that our world
can easily do without.
Also, Kolida and Lam are sadly mistaken
if they think that by having all people
conform to their standards all economic and
social problems will disappear. I urge them,
and others like them, to rethink their views
on these important matters for their own
good, my good, and the good of all others.

In Italy almost two-thirds of the
1.5 million officially, unemployed
are young people. Violent demonstrations and confrontations with
the government are increasing.
People want jobs.
In Germany young people make
up a quarter of the unemployed.
There are nearly 500,000 unem-
• the reinforcement of
established information, counselling and placement services;
• special measures to help
young people enter working life,
including paid and unpaid work
experience;
• measures affecting the size of
the labor force, such as extended
education, paid educational leave
or flexible retirement; and
• the variety of the measures is
simply a reflection of the variety of
philosophies to be found in the
member countries which include,
Canada, United States, Australia,
Sweden, Italy, United Kingdom,
Japan, Austria, Spain and Finland.

Even Canada s former finance
minister Donald MacDonald has
expressed concern for the future
for a country with massive youth
unemployment.
At an economic summit for the
seven leading industrial nations in
London in May, he said "long term
youth unemployment could lead to
youth unemployment. Employment minister Bud Cullen has
constantly repeated that there
must be a closer connection between education and the workplace
(iciTi finds
In Germany, the government has
begun a large-scale program of
apprenticeships, for young people
"Long term youth unemployment
could lead to social unrest and
if it persisted, it might lead to
political destabilization"
social unrest and if it persisted
might lead to political de-
stabilization."
But it has persisted. Roy
Jenkins, president of the European
Economic Community (EEC) said
that youth unemployment is one of
"the problems which originally
appeared to be mainly short term
(but) are liable increasingly to
assume a more permanent
nature."
This view is shared by the
Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development
(OECD), a group made up of 24 of
the leading industrial nations.
The OECD held a special international conference on youth unemployment in December, 1977, to
"exchange experience on
measures that have been adopted
or planned in member countries to
combat youth unemployment."
In June, 1977 Donald MacDonald
said after the annual meeting of
the OECD in Paris that he did "not
believe we are ready for a high-
level conference" on youth unemployment.
There are several reasons why
MacDonald was hesitant about the
conference. First, the OECD had
just declared that it affirmed a five
per cent over-all growth target for
all the OECD countries in 1978.
Secondly, and probably more
importantly, Canada has the worst
record for youth unemployment
among OECD countries.
There were seven points
reviewed by the OECD as steps to
reduce youth unemployment. They
were:
• The introduction of incentives
for the creation or maintenance of
jobs for young people in the private
sector. In this connection, the role
of small- and medium-sized enterprises was emphasized;
• the creation of jobs in the
public sector in response to urgent
social needs in fields such as
health, social services, adult
education and environmental
protection;
public support for local community projects, outside
traditional public structures;
• measures designed to develop
various forms of training, including apprenticeships, both in
enterprises and in institutions;
below the normal apprenticeship
age limits.
The government knows that
there will be more workers than
jobs available in the immediate
future but hopes that the economic
climate will improve. If it does
there will be immediate
placements for these new trained
workers.
The OECD also discussed the
problem of the type of work that
these young people — between the
ages of 15 and 25 — are taking or
rejecting.
One solution to this problem
would be "action by employers,
trade unions and governments to
adapt the quality of wOrking life to
the aspirations and capacities of
young people and to enhance the
value of manual work.
One of the disagreements at the
conference came over the question
of forced retirement, reductions in
working time and other matters
concerning the sharing of available
employment opportunities.
According to the final communique from the conference
"There was a diversity of views on
the merits and the effectiveness of
such measures. However, it was
generally agreed that the social
arid economic implications of such
changes were both complex and
uncertain — in particular with
regard to their reversibility — and
that they were not a substitute for
efforts to provide employment for
all."
Although governments, including Canada's have known for
decades that there would be a large
increase in the number of young
people seeking jobs, regardless of
the existing economic climate,
none has acted to counter the
problem before it became a crisis.
Cullen can say as he did in his
speech to the conference, "that the
costs (of youth unemployment)
may also become political, if young
people become disillusioned
enough to seek disruptive change
in society, but the failure of this
government to act decisively is the
best indication of their position.
For the future Cullen could only
repeat what the government has
done in the past.
"The federal government has responded to this challenge as part of
its over-all response to the economic and labor market conditions
it has faced."
For young people that strategy
has meant fewer and fewer jobs.
As we have seen, the response to
the growing youth unemployment
problem has not been the same
everywhere. There is yet to be a
riot in Ottawa.
But there have been demonstrations in nine of the capitals of
the European Community according to one report, and in North
America the real response to the
growing number of people in the
unemployment lines, is now being
seen as increased drug addiction,
violent crime and related social
problems according to some
political commentators.
The question is not though, how
are the unemployed going to
respond, but what should and could
be done to stop and reverse this
situation.
At the end of the OECD conference there was agreement that
activities to counter youth unemployment should be promoted by
action in three main directions:
• the creation of jobs through
increased economic activity
whenever possible;
t the intensification of special
measures to increase employment
opportunities for youth without
weakening existing labor
protection of young workers; and
• an improved transition from
school to work.
