Referenda fail
to meet quorum
CIRCULATION 15 000        TUESDAY. NOVEMBER 10, 1992
Publishing continuously since 1918
by Rick Hiebert
Not enough students voted
in favour of the questions put
to them on November 2 to 6 in
the Alma Mater Society referenda. All of the questions
failed to reach quorum and remain undecided.
According to unofficial results that will likely be accepted
by the AMS Student Council
on Thursday, though two ofthe
questions got more Yes votes
than Nos, none of them had the
required 2,897 Yes votes (10
per cent of the undergraduate
population of UBC) needed to
Students voted on four
questions, all of which would
have increased AMS fees had
they passed.
Students were asked if they
supported a $4 annual fee levy
to match UBC administration
funds and set up an Office of
the Ombudsperson for Students, assuming the AMS and
UBC's administration could
agree before 1995 on how to set
up the proposed office. There
were 1,561 Yes votes, 1,319 No
votes and 17 spoils in the unofficial results on this question.
This result was released
by the Student Administrative
Commission last night.
Students were also asked
if they wished to increase a
compulsory donation to the
World University Students of
Canada by a dollar to $1.50.
This fee is currently used to
help support two foreign refugee students at UBC.
The second question passed
1,989 Yes votes to 895 Nos with
18 spoiled ballots.
On the third question, students were asked whether they
wanted a $3 annual fee to subsidize AMS Programs, which
brings speakers, performers
and musicians to appear and
perform for students. AMS
Programs also helps clubs and
societies with their special
UBC students voted this
question down with 1,631 No
votes and 1,250 Yes votes.
There were 21 spoiled ballots.
The last question asked
whether a new $7 fee should be
levied once on all first year
students to fund the First Year
Student Orientation Program,
which helps frosh adjust to
UBC with retreats, meetings
and get-togethers.
This question was also
voted down by UBC students.
1,824 No votes and 1,049 Yes
votes were cast with 21 spoils.
All together, just over 10
per cent of UBC undergrads
voted in the referendum, which
cost $4,563 to conduct. Much of
the cost was due to newspaper
ads ($1,573), pamphlets
($1,000), specialT-shirts($900)
and the rental of a mobile
Votemobile to take votes ($500).
Caroline Jones, SAC elections commissioner, was "disappointed" by the returns.
"I see how programs like
the First Year Orientation
work. Students who meet in
those activities are friends all
year. I can't see why anyone
would be against somethinglike
that," Jones said.
"Perhaps people at UBC
don't see how these programs
could benefits them. I fear there
could be a real "Well, what's in
it for me?' attitude prevalent."
Jones said the SAC had
"increased its efforts" to get the
word out that voting was important.
Student inability to pay increased AMS fees could have
been a factor in the vote, she
said. One student slipped a note
into a ballot box saying "I feel
as if I pay too much already to
this university. What does the
AMS do for me?"
AMS president Martin Ertl
was also disappointed, but said,
"Well, at least 3,000 people
cared enough to come out to
He said perhaps the only
way to get more students to
vote was through "more personal contact."
"People have to get out
there to meetings and classes
to explain why students need
to vote and why it may be a
good idea for them to vote Yes,"
Ertl said.
AMS executive and council
members tried to lobby students, he said, but many executives are already "overloaded with work" and couldn't
spend all their time lobbying,
particularly while beset with
He added that one question
in last fall's referendum—that
allowing Pit and SUB expansion to be pursued—did make
quorum, so referendums can
"Having a large quorum
does have some good safeguards. With a high vote requirement, that ensures that
frivolous questions don't get
passed by students. You usually tend to make sure that
thought is put into projects,
given the time and energy that
is needed for a referendum."
Ertl said next spring's new
council will probably have to
carry on the fight for this fall's
referendum initiatives.
Thunderbird running back Brad Yamoaka scored two touchdowns while gaining 200 yards, unfortunately
UBC still fell short in a 26-24 overtime loss to the Calgary Dinosaurs In Saturday's Canada West Final.
It's all over for Footbirds
by Mark Nielsen
When it comes to University
of Calgary Dinosaurs football,
most people think of record-
breaking running back and Hee
Creighton nominee Craig Kittle-
But during the Canada West
Championship at Thunderbird
Stadium on Saturday, the Dino
who stuck out the most in the
UBC Thunderbirds' minds was
field-goal kicker Bruce Parsons.
The second-year Dino was
good on six of six attempts, including a 24-yard game winner
to pace Calgary to a 26-24 overtime victory over UBC.
With the win, Calgary will
travel to Halifax this weekend to
play the St. Mary's University
Huskies for a berth in the Vanier
Cup game in Toronto later this
month. The Thunderbird season,
meanwhile, comes to an end.
Adding insult to iiyury, Parsons was successful on only six
field goals during the entire
Canada West regular season.
Why the sudden turnaround? According to Dinosaurs
head coach Peter Connellan, it
was just a matter of practice.
"He has a heavy course load
so sometimes he just doesn't get
out to practice and when he does
show up we've tended to neglect
him," he said.
"But with this game coming
up we did a bit more work with
him. He has a strong leg and it
was just a matter of getting him
to practice a bit."
Besides the 24 yard game-
winner, scored with only 1:36 left
in the second overtime period,
Parsons sent the game into extra
time with a 47-yarder at 9:53 of
the fourth quarter to put the
game into a 17-17 deadlock.
He also nailed a 47-yard attempt in the second quarter, as
well as a 24-yard kick to open
the scoring and two from 32 yards
out in the first overtime period.
Meanwhile, UBC kicker
Mark Nowotny had his troubles,
making only one of four field
goal attempts—hitting an upright from 37 yards on one
occassion. He even missed a convert and shanked his share of
"Mark can kick a lot better
than that," UBC coach Frank
Smith stated flatly.
For most of the first half,
however, it did look like a battle
of the running backs. But second-year Thunderbird Brad
Yamaoka overshadowed the fifth
year Kittelson, who set a new
CIAU season rushing record of
1248 yards.
UBC jumped out to a 14-3
lead on a pair ofYamaoka touchdowns, one scored on a 70-yard
But a Parsons field goal narrowed the score to 14-6.
And with the UBC defence con-
centrating on Kittelson, Calgary
went to the air with less than a
minute to play to put together a
55-yard drive. With one second
left, Kittelson scored a touchdown on a two yard run.
Dino quarterback Jason
Assen then passed five yards to
slotback Ryan Williams for a two-
point convert to tie tiie game 14-
14 at the half.
In the second half, the teams
traded field goals before the
Dinos jumped to a 23-17 lead on
two Parsons field goals in the
first overtime period.
UBC regained the lead when
UBC quarterback Vince
Danielsen hit first-year slotback
Mark Hirsche for a 77-yard
touchdown one minute into the
second overtime.
But with less than three
minutes to play, Assen found
wide receiver James Buchanan
with a 32-yard pass to put
Calgary on the UBC 16-yard line
to set up the winning field goal.
With nine seconds left,
Nowotny*8 42-yard attempt fell
short and the game was over.
"Nobody expected us to win
many games but we came a long
way during the season," Smith
said. "We got off to a damn good
start but couldn't quite put it
over the hump."
Bird bits
Kittleson finished the
game with 223 yards on
34 •Tarries while Yamaoka
got 200 yards on 37 carries.
Hirsche was the top
UBC receiver with 117
yards on four receptions.

'Birds fall short at Nats..
by Mark Nielsen
It was close but no cigar.
Both the UBC
Thunderbirds field hockey and
cross-country teams fell short
in their bids for CIAU championships over the weekend.
Here's a closer look:
Field hockey-
In a lone consolation to an
otherwise disappointing weekend, the Thunderbirds posted
a 2-0 victory over York in
Saturday's fifth-place match at
Eric Hamber Field.
Dana Anderson scored with
30 seconds left on Friday to
give Torontoa 1-ltie with UBC.
The Thunderbirds were sidelined by that goal after losing
2-1 to Alberta earlier.
TheThunderbirds were the
1990 champions and the 1991
"We expected we would be
here; not to have UBC in the
final is a disappointment and
an upset," UBC coach Gail Wilson said as she watched the
final. "I think we worried too
much about Toronto but in retrospect they probably weren't
as strong as we thought. We
were too cautious; we should
have just gone after them the
whole time."
Victoria won the tournament with a 2-0 victory over
New Brunswick in the final
after edging Alberta 2-1 in the
Cross-country -
UBC's Graeme Fell, 33,
Canadian record holder in the
3,000-metre steeplechase, was
first over the 9.8 kilometre
course in 31:19:71, with
Moncton's Joel Bourgeois second and UBC-teammate Zeba
Crook third.
But it wasn't enough to lift
UBC to a CIAU men's crosscountry championship in
Sherbrooke, Quebec over the
weekend. When the final points
were tallied Sherbrooke, led by
sixth place Jean-Pierre Poulin,
won the men's team title with
49 points to UBC's 55. Toronto
was third with 69.
so in one sense we have to be
happy," said UBC cross-country
coach Marek Jedrzejek.
"But it is also disappointing because we had a good
chance to win, and we wanted
to win."
UBC's Allan Klassen fin-
ishedfifth with teammates Jeff
Archibald and Jeff Schiebler
24th and 25th respectively.
Schiebler, Canadian junior
record holder in the steeplechase, was returning from an
ankle injury suffered at the
world junior track and field
championships in Seoul.
On the women's side, UBC
edged Toronto for second while
Lisa Harvey led Calgary to the
team victory.
Karen Reader was the top
UBC finisher in 12th with
teammates Sherri Conrod and
Meghan O'Brien finishing 15th
and 16th.
Calgary finished with 53
points, followed by UBC at 83
and Toronto at 86.

.But wrap up Canada West soccer titles
Both the women's and the
men's soccer teams will be going to national soccer finals after winning respective Canada
West championship games over
the weekend.
Nancy Ferguson and
Meghan Blair scored for UBC
in their 2-1 victory over Alberta
on Saturday.
They'll play McGill this
weekend in Hamilton.
Blair pounced on a loose
ball in the penalty area and
scored in the 86th minute.
Nikki Townsend gave Alberta
a 1-0 halftime lead but Meghan
blair tied the game in the 68th
And it came down to goal
keepers to decide who would
win the men's game against
the Victoria Vikings on Friday
which UBC won 5-4.
The clubs were tied 1-1 after 90 minutes and 2-2 after 30
minutes of overtime. They were
tied 4-4 after the first round of
five penalty kicks.
Then UVic selected goalkeeper Shel Brodsworth as its
next shooter; he was stopped
by UBC goalie Jeff Hutton.
Willie Cromack then beat
Brodsgaard for the winner.

The UBC Thunderbirds returned from a disappointing
road trip from the University of
Calgary over the weekend,
where they were defeated in
both games.
Despite dominating the
opener Friday night, the
Thunderbirds lost 3-2—the
Dinosaurs scoring the winner
with four minutes remaining.
UBC had outstanding play by
team captain, Charles Cooper
who scored both goals.
Saturday's night game was
a wider gap of a 7-4 loss.
Goals for the Thunderbirds
were by Charles Cooper, Dean
Richards (2), and Jeff
Coach Mike Coflin believes
that the team was strong and
played well but were defeated
by numerous penalties that
gave the Dinosaurs too many
power play advantages.
Coflin feels confident that
the team has the potential to
keep in sight of the play-offs.
The Thunderbirds are only four
points from third place in the
Canada West, with 20 more
games to go.
This week the team will be
spending its time getting mentally sharp to play University
of Saskatchewan November 13
and 14 at 7:30pm.
The Thunderbirds will be
playing four home games in a
row, hosting the University of
Saskatchewan and Manitoba.
They hope to have a large crowd
turn-out to cheer them on.

Pepperdynamitel-Pepperdine's Duane Cameron jumps for the

through the development of
what he refers to as "ironic distance." This distance serves to
downplay guilt for the non-
Native viewer and in so doing
frees the viewer to appreciate
more fully the pain of First
Nations peoples.
Vignettes dealing with
rape, disease, language, land,
and appropriation were fluidly
joined with aria-like vocalizations produced by LaFramboise
and Cardinal.
When asked what Arcan
enjoyed most about the play he
responded with "the process."
He clearly enjoys writing and
has his sights firmly set on

next artistic endeavour.

Ultraviolence examined

This film will chill you to the grated bone,
Benny's Video
directed by Michael Haneke
Benny's Video by veteran filmmaker Michael Haneke is a terrifying testament for our hyper-tech times. Benny
(Arno Frisch) is the adolescent
videophile son of materially indulgent
but emotionally distant parents.
He's a somewhat reserved but otherwise seemingly ordinary urban junior
highschool student—not your usual idea
ofthe amoral murderer in a violent psycho-thriller, huh?
Benny isn't amoral because he's a
hardened criminal (which would be infinitely more human), but because he has
no bloody idea what he's done. He has
such a perfect lack of ethics that he's not
even bothered by his own remorseless-
ness. He can't feel guilt because he can't
feel anything at all.
Benny has no sense of reality
apart from that which is filtered through
audiovisual equipment. Even the view
out his own windows he sees never by
raising his always-lowered blinds, but
on his tv screen (live!) through the eye of
his video camera.
The film opens with a video of a
pig being slaughtered at a farm during a
family vacation (filmed, we find out
later, by Benny). Shocking doesn't begin
to explain it. There were a lot of horrified gasps from the audience—many of
whom were probably regretting the
bacon they'd had for breakfast.
Then, the video gets rewound. The
audience was forced to an agonizing
realization that we had to sit through
the scene again,
when once was more than enough, thank
So we gritted our teeth, not feeling
better for the knowledge now of what we
were to expect. The screaming pig being
dragged out to the courtyard. The suspended moment of wide-eyed, fascinated
horror as the stun-gun is put to its head.
The wildly rolling eyes ofthe terrified
pig. The heart-stopping jolt as the stun-
gun is fired. The bleeding pig, wildly
jacking in sickening death-throes...
What kind of sick psycho is watching this traumatizing video, anyway?
And repeatedly, at that?
Who else but our Benny?
This nausea-inducing sequence is
shown us two more times before the film
is over. It's never less violently frightening. But, disturbingly, it becomes
increasingly less shocking with each successive showing.
This is Haneke's way of showing
us first-hand the dulling effect on the
human mind inundated with violence,
although he lives in Austria. That the
average American child has seen 18,000
murders on television by the age of sixteen may help explain Benny's terrifying
lack of emotions.
With no capacity for feeling, Benny
is astoundingly less than human.
Though the murder he commits (which
the audience gets to see twice, both
times through the lens ofthe video camera) is brutally disturbing, his parents'
reaction when they are informed is no
less horrific. And I won't even start with
the shocker ending.
In these times of Street Fighter II
and gratuitously violent "action" movies,
perhaps Haneke is trying to bring us
back from the edge.

Ballet BC
Queen Elizabeth Theatre
November 12-14
The challenge now is
Vancouver's Queen Elizabeth
Theatre, where Ballet BC will
mark its debut performance
under artistic director (and
internationally renowned
choreographer) John Alleyne,
from November 12-14.
Hines, who started dancing at the age of four, came to
Ballet BC in 1988 after three
years with the National Ballet
of Canada. She was "looking for
a change of scene," and an-
opportunity to develop her
The move to the intimate
atmosphere of a young company with eighteen dancers has
been very successful. Petite and
poised, she is enthusiastic
about her individual progress
and the coming performance.
Trained in the classical
Ceccetti technique at Canada s
National Ballet School, Hines
feels that her strength lies in
contemporary dance. "The clas
sics require so much perfection
posed beauty; ifs hard to
always be bang on." Herej
at Ballet BC she finds herself j
able to develop her technique
and grow personally.
"We're performing a lot of
contemporary work, with a lot
of pieces created for the compa-
ny. In contemporary, everyone
gets a chance to be as big as
they can," she said. "We can all
be very strong even though
we're moving exactly together,
whereas the aim in Swan Lake
is to look exactly the same."
At Ballet BC, dancers
sometimes have the rare opportunity to integrate themselves
in the creative process, especially with their newly appointed director.
"That improves your
dancing a lot, to be part of the
creative process," Hines said.
"We just completed a piece with
John where we collected newspaper articles and chose the
subjects ourselves. We created
a dialogue and movements for
that dialogue."
That piece was The Real
Bet Ann's Dance commissioned
for the 1992 Canada Dance
Festival in Ottawa.
"Dont expect any tutus,"
warns Hines, with reference to
Alleyne's approach. "He puts
some risks in the positions just
to make them exciting. You're
slightly off balance so you're
going to fall. But you know
when you're going to fall (hopefully) so you do it with confidence."
Ifs evident that Alleyne's
arrival has greatly inspired his
dancers. "We're all buzzing
after working with John. On ah
international basis he's right
up there among the best, and
now here he is in Vancouver,
and we get to work with him all
the time."
The close personal contact that the dancers have with
the demanding and challenging
Alleyne has had a major impact
on their dancing. Hines predicts that "any of our regulars
are going to see a huge difference this year."
The programme will feature one of Alleyne's own pieces
"Bet Ann's Dance." Ifs
described as "an abstract piece,
a way of moving, the expression
pretty much comes from the
music?' It will be danced to percussion music performed live
by guest artist Salvador
"We've had the percussionist in our studio for the
past few days and thafs added
a whole new dimension."
Another offering is
"Lovesongs" created by William
Forsythe to music by Aretha
Franklin and Dionne Warwick.
It is about "not being wanted
and relationships, about struggling through them to stay
together, or trying to get away
from them."
■"Lovesongs' is fun" Hines
exclaimed. "The music is very
danceable; everyone will recognize it. Now they'll have something visual to put to it, and
hopefully, theyTl be involved in
In a few days the company will move from their "dingy
shoebox" for rehearsal at the
theatre. Ifs a lot bigger and as
Cyopik said, "we have to run
twice as fast, but we seem to
Watching their enthusiasm and confidence, ifs apparent why Ballet BC has managed to survive-successfully.
Ifs encouraging to see such
commitment to a profession
which is so risky and can often
lead to disappointment.
As Hines observed,
"sometimes ifs frustrating. All
your hard work is going into
these few moments on stage
and if you're distracted by
nerves you lose all your
The dancers are unanimous in their approval ofthe
ballef s leadership and hopeful
of its future. As Cyopik said,
"John's onto something good.
Fm not quite sure what it is,
but the company is definitely
headed in the right direction."

THE UBYSSEY/5 Accessible education? Lube the doors!
Langara community
college instructors may be
walking the picket line today to demand fair wages.
Advanced education
minister Tom Perry said
there is no money for a wage
increase despite the fact that
Langara instructors earn
$4000 less than equally
qualified high school teachers.
But Perry did say a small
increase might be possible if
instructors could stuffmore
students into classes. Perry
is in effect offering instructors a reward for lowering
their teaching standards.
Remembrance Day
Dear Gramps,
I am free, young and free, alive
and free, and living in a free country. I am also twenty-three. I am
writing to you, to you a little about
me. For you were shot in the head
and dead before you ever gotta see
me... You never even saw twenty-
They tell me that you died for
me, that you died so I could live
freely... But, what would you tell
me?... If you couldhave lived to see
me. To see me, now sitting here,
drinking a beer and thinking of all
the fools, like you who fought and
died in some war, for what... ? So
your kin could live freely? Is that
what you would tell me.
Let me tell you about me. I am
free to do what I want, and to do as
I please. And what do I choose? I
choose not to choose, which means
I choose to just do nothing. Well,
actually I do attend University,
and I am about to finish an Arts
degree. Are you proud of me? ...
Don't because it doesn't mean much
to me (or does the degree) if s just
that it beats working, and doing
some meaningless deed. You see,
Fm too young to surrender my
freedom, and become another slave
to the capitalist machine, and Fm
too young to fall to m e knees in awe
ofthe almighty green.
You surrendered! you surrendered to the Japanese, and what
did they do, but put a bullet in the
back of your head while you were
on your knees. Gramps...what
would you say if you saw me.
They often tell me that Fm
wasting my life. "You're 23 and
you haven't done anything" What
are you gonna do with your life?"
Ifs hard not to smile and proudly
reply "absolutely fuckin nothing!"
Fm just gonna live and be free, ifs
my free right and thafs what I
proudly believe.
Thafs what Fd tell you... Id I
saw you, don't you see, Thafs what
Fd say to you. Fm free! You wasted
your life! not me. Do you understand me, Dont you see, I would
never waster my life for free. And,
You! ... You wasted your life for
me...! Thank you,... But, I have to
tell you, you were a fool to die for
something, when you could have
just done nothing, and lived to see

Making Problems
for Irving
Thank you for the October 30
issue of The Ubyssey. I was somewhat heartened when I read Zac
Kaye's comments on David Irving.
Rabbi Zac understands very clearly
the dangers inherent in David
Irving's nihilism; the rest of us,
however, may not be as discerning.
In England, in the old days,
It's teachingin quantity over
quality and the commodity
in mass production is us.
At a time when education is a prerequisite of eligibility for a job, why is it
that teaching is overlooked
and undervalued? For one
thing, unlike the hi-tech research centres that are set
up by governments and industries at universities,
there is no short term payoff
from financing quality education.
Teaching is also undervalued because the number
of students seeking higher
education far outnumbers
the spaces available in
schools. This allows the condition of education to disintegrate, even while getting
an education becomes more
elitist and a status symbol.
You can sit on the floor, you
can be handed over to a grad
student who isn't qualified
to teach the class, you can be
left to teach yourself in your
instructors' absence because
they're trying to get a paper
out for publication; you
should just be grateful for
getting in and getting that
degree in your hand.
The situation of the instructors at Langara and
other BC colleges consider
ing a strike is the situation
of all educators amplified.
The pitiful wages of the instructors at the community
college reveal that teaching
has a relatively low social
value. The instructors are
exploited because their
products/students are a financial risk that might not
pay off the investors.
Students are also being
screwed out of the right to
learn, and the cost of education is slowly but surely being turned over to us in tiie
form of exorbitant fees.
Eventually, this strategy
of cutting corners on wages
will cost the folks who say
there isn't money to pay a
decent wage to enough educators so that everyone's
right to learn is fulfilled. The
governments andindustries
that consider teaching a bad
investment will find that the
human resources pushed
through a declining education system haven't been as
well taught as they deserved
to be.
If education were considered a basic right, the
money for fair wages for the
Langarainstructors could be
found. As it is, education is a
luxury and a service available to fewer and fewer of

Mr. Irving has bamboozle a whole
college of historians. If Winston
Churchill were alive today, he
would eat Mr. Irving alive in any
informed debate on European history.
If you think the Holocaust and
National Socialism are matters
only for the Jews, think again. If
you believe, in your complacency,
that David Irving is not a potential
threat to your livelihood, think
again. Mr. Irving is not simply
creating a lie about numbers killed
(although the well-documented
evidence alone is enough to consign
him to a garbage can), he is questioning the very basis of what is
good in human beings. Mr. Irving
thrives on the rotting flesh of our
collective conscience. Mr. Irving is
partly correct when he suggests
that a major portion of the blame
for the Holocaust must rest with
Hitler's followers (but for the wrong
reasons). However, in his passionate defence oLHitler's ideological
sincerity, Mr. Irving would have
us believe that the upper echelons
of Nazi Party structures were
dominated by well-intentioned but
non-steadfast individuals. I have
new for Mr. Irving. National Socialism thrived on the illicit moral
character of German society, and
the failure of a whole national
community (with some notable
exceptions) to adhere to the fundamental principles of Social Humanism on which it was supposedly
firmly grounded. National Socialism, as a subset of Fascism, is
firmly founded on the notion that
you can take what is cynical, malevolent and selfish in human nature and put it to bad use. We are
all victims of the Holocaust; Mr.
Irving is no exception. Mr. Irving
can have his mythical "Jewish
Problem" and rant and rave. It is
our duty, as human beings, to make
the world One Big Problem for
David Irving.

Wow. Forty dollars. Even assuming that you're lucky enough
to get though the summer without
any unexpected expenses, you'll
still be ten bucks in the hole after
your first bus pass.
Fm sorry, Mr. Strangway, but
I just can't afford it. I can't afford
to subsidize searches for the
Ogopogo's brother-in-law, or faculties paying students fifty dollars
to catch a cold. Every time fees go
up, a few more students have to
decide that an education just costs
to much,'and quitely drop out of

future, but as for the present...
well, it seems to be ruining a far
greater number than it saves.

Nice Argument
In the words of the immortal
Monty Python "Simple contradiction does not constitute an argument, an argumemTis a series of
connecting premises which lead to
a final conclusion. Simply stating
'no' is merely contradiction, and
does not make up an argument....
'..no it isnt'."
When I originally read Lisa
Penny's letter regarding vivisection, I observed that she has some
misunderstandings and misconceptions regarding why animals
are used in medical research, the
importance of vivisection in medical research, and cited some examples of the amazing successes
that have been made in pharmacological research in the century -
pharmacological research which
had extensive pre-clinical testing
using animal models.
I am sincerely dismayed at
the reaction I received by Mariann
Horvath in her article "Yes, Mr.
Nelson!". Not her views contradict
my own -1 recognize that there is
a legitimate debate regarding the
morality of vivisection, it is that
her analysis of my view is both
irrational and insulting. Her criticism were basically, that I was
WRONG, that my education has
been based on an invalid 'doctrine',
and that diseases should be prevented. Fm sorry, but I cannot
except that.
Ms. Horvath's statement
that I was WRONG, without any
supporting evidence is just plain
silly. I know Fm not wrong, and its
not because I've been brainwashed
is some lab to be sent out into the
world with an insatiable desire to
torture lower sgecies. Vivisection
is a completely rational, and scientific-ally acceptable method for
modelling human psychological
systems. To say that there is a
fundamental difference' between
animals and man proves to me
that Ms. Horvath has a complete
misunderstanding of how people
work. There is no fundamental
difference' between animals and
man except that we've a more developed cerebral cortex which allows us self-awareness so we can
have arguments such as these. The
fundamental biological systems in
animals and man are almost
identical. This has been demonstrated by comparing species at
the biochemical, cellular and anatomical levels. Your heart works in
the same way that a dog's, raf s or
guinea pig's. The cellular mechanisms which are present in the
human heart, are also present in
the hearts of the other species.
Therefore, developing drugs which
act on these cellular mechanisms
in the rat's heat will almost definitely act in a similar way on a
human's heart. These are facts.
They cannot be simply dismissed
by saying 'no they're not'. If one is
to be so free with one's criticism,
one should at the very least have
evidence for the contrary. The very
legitimate debate concerning the
morality of vivisection should not
be argues by such distortion of
fact, or purposeful misunder
standing ofthe scientific method.

Wake Up Harcourt!
On the eve of defeat, after
backing one losing cause, Premier
Harcourt announced that he is
backing another. While voters were
at the polls rejecting the compromise constitutional accord,
Harcourt told union members
gathered at the IWA Annual
General Meeting of his plan to go
to Europe this spring to try to sell
the European public on the idea
that current B.C. logging practices
are environmentally friendly.
This coming spring
Western Canada Wilderness
Committee, too, is going to Europe.
We are taking with us a huge,
thousand-year-old log which was
cut down and left to rot in a B.C.
clearcut by one of the big forest
companies. We intent to present
slide shows and distribute thousands of newspapers and government reports which tell the truth
about the mismanagementofB.C.'s
forests—our answer to the forest
industry/government public relations campaign that is trying to
cover up the continues abuse of our
forest lands.
Harcourt should put on
his caulk boots and hike through
some recent clearcuts instead of
going to Europe. No doubt then
he's stop being an apologist for the
forest industry and pass laws to
stop the wasteful, environmentally-damaging logging practices
that are squandering both future
forestry jobs and our irreplaceable
wilderness heritage.
Wake up Harcourt! You
wont be able to sell bad forestry
practices any better than you were
able to sell a bad constitutional
deal. Stick to your principles, fulfil
your pre-election environmental
promises and spend your time
making the forestry industry
change for the better

People unclear on the concept: in defence of tree farms
In response to the "front page
coverage" ofthe "conflict of interest at UBC by Frances Foran, Td
like to voice a more realistic opinion. To begin with, if one needs to
make a respectable opinion, one
needs to show respect, i.e. slapping three obese pigs on the article
does not convey that. Secondly, as
a student at the faculty, I feel quite
disillusioned with the new industry-oriented stand the faculty has
taken. Until now, I felt that the
education that was beingprovided
for the future forest decision-makers were based on least-biased information.
The article by F. Foran kept
its validity up to the point of its
saying goes, "lack of information
equals ignorance* prevails in most
ofthe article. In the article, it was
implied that any research (past or
present) being done at the faculty
(not the department, Frances) of
forestry has been for the sole use of
the industry. Until now, the research at the faculty has been
oriented towards innumerable
goals, ranging from "science for
the purpose of uncovering knowledge and seeinghowthe world was
made" to "science towards short
term goals that have economic

Cheap renting fun in Vancouver
by Carol Fairelt
Three years ago I was comfortably ensconced in a. one bedroom
apartment, complete with pool and
health club.
Then, havingdecided to return
to school I sought cheaper accommodation, not wishing to pay more
than $300 yet still be able to live on
the west side of Vancouver.
I found a nicely furnished room
in Kits, This waB my first experience at low cost Btudent living and
although I expected some changes
that would arise from shared bathrooms, kitchens etc., etc., I had no
idea what those changes would entail.
My 82-year-old landlady had
mentioned I couldn't have men in
the room, but neglected to tell me of
her other rules. Four pages of them
to be exact, all neatly handwritten
and waiting for me on the table. No
showers on Sunday. No running
water before 7am or after 10pm. No
talking on the phone after 10pm no
visitors after 10 and soon and so on.
Sheapparently didn't like thesound
of running water and also restricted
showerstothreetunesaweek. Yeah
She loved writing notes and
i tittle reminders all over the place.
Every time the door was dosed a
! touch tooloud, up went a note. Three
drops of water left on the bathroom
counter, another note.
I realized that Bhe only wanted
dead people living in her house. The
rentalsman suggested I should move,
rather than dealing with such ridiculous restrictions.„.try finding a
clean room in October. I stuck it out
for two years before searching for
new digs.
This time I would go as high as
350 dollars and hopefully get my
own bathroom.
I looked at a basement room in
Kerrisdale. The bathroom would
belong solely to me, Baid the owner
ofthe house. Then she aBked me if I
worked, because she didnt want
anyone living there who would be
around much. WHY ARE YOU
Wanted to Bcream.
I found a place in Dunbar. Tiny,
folly furnished; my own bathroom.
Sounds perfect-not quite! Soon after
moving in, the walls started to vibrate with the noise of the washing
machine which was located 3 indies
from my door, something which I
hadn't noticed. They love to do laundry in this place, sometimes Up to 10
hours a day. Also, another small
item not mentioned; I would have to
park my car a block away, on another
street. The owner has no parking
facilities in back for her car so she
and her daughters park in front,
leaving me, the renter who pays
$385 a month, on which no tax is
paid, because it's an illegal suite, to
park a block away,
I was also told the basement
was exclusively mine and would be
private. Does the entire family
cruising by my window because
they don't feel like using the front
stairs, or letting their dog crash
against my door, or the owner talking babytalk to the dog at 6am in
the morning outside my window
constitute privacy?
I've finally come to the sad
conclusion that homeowners want
the money for their tiny, dark, cold
basement rooms, which are not all
that Cheap (average rent $350), but
they really don't want anyone to
live in them.
Then why don't they advertise
as Buch; by having their ad read,
You see, they have found a
neat way to make some tax-free
income by allowing students to
move into their houses, but they
really don't want to accommodate
them, they just want their money;
also they know how bard it is to
find decent, clean rooms and that
students will put up with a lot of
bullishit and probably not complain, life is just not fair!
ment, Forest Harvesting Msg'or,
Natural Resources Conservation,
Wood Science and Industry Major,
and Forest Science Major.
Thus any research that has
been done until now has been the
choice ofthe individual scientist.
Scientists conduct research for the
sake of improving on forestry
practisces in collaboration with the
public and/or private sector.
In your example of "John
Carlson's project on genetic improvement of Douglas Fir trees to
breed faster", simply means increasing speed of tree growth to
reach harvestable age earlier.
Subsequently this could mean less
cutting in the first growth/Old
Growth forests, and more focus on
cutting in faster rotating cultured
forests grown for the purpose of
The realities remain that a)
there's an increased demand for
resources (including wood products) with the exponentially increasing population growth, and
b) forest industry is the main
source of our national income. Due
to increased demands and limited
resources (trees), we need to minimize on the quantity of cutting
and maximize on its quality. An
example of quality improvement
is via forest genetics.
Although the industry exists
on maximized profits, they too
benefit from genetic improvemnet
of forests. In fact, it is beneficial to
both of the public's interests and
the industry (to reduce on the
quantity of cutting and focus more
extensively on the quality of harvest).
The bitter-sweet fact that an
allocated number of trees per year
have to be cut by the private or the
public sector remains one of our
only means of national income.
Conclusively, the research being
conducted presently at the faculty
of forestry is not just for the benefit
of the industry, but even more
crucial, for tiie public and. non-
human interests.
