 SAC junks new punk dance
A purik dance scheduled for Saturday
night at UBC was cancelled Monday by the
student administrative commission because
of fears of potential violence.
The dance, the second such event to be
cancelled in three weeks, was proposed to
SAC by the Alma Mater Society's programs
committee. Unlike a previously planned
event the latest dance would not have been
licensed for liquor sales.
"Some individual had heard that there
might be violence," commissioner Sally
Thorne said Monday.
She added that the other commissioners
had not been in favor of the dance because
they did not feel that there would be adequate security.
Four of the commissioners abstained from
the vote of 3 to 1 against, said Thorne,
because they were unwilling to accept responsibility if something happened during the
"If you vote in favor of the concert, and
someone blows up the building, you'd look
pretty stupid," Thorne said.
Thorne added that she had voted in favor
of the dance because it seemed there were a
lot of people on campus in favor of seeing a
punk concrt.
SAC commissioner Glenn Wong said the
decision could be overturned by the student
representative assembly. But he added that it
would be impossible to hold the concert
Saturday, as SAC would then have to approve the contracts with the bands planning
to perform, and those contracts have not yet
been signed.
SAC would not be able to approve the contracts before their meeting next Monday, too
late to allow the concert to go on.
-Commissioner Glenn Wong said he abs
tained from voting on the issue because there
was not enough information.
"There was so much garbled information
that I couldn't make a decision."
Wong said commissioner Geoff Smith had
mentioned the possibility of the punk dance
potentially causing violence.
"Geoff made it very clear that it was hearsay evidence, but I don't know if anyone
bought it," Wong said.

'Natives need their own local gov'ts'
Canadian native Indians must
form their own local governments
to fight federal government attempts to eliminate special
aboriginal rights, Bob Manuel,
Union of B.C. Indian Chiefs
spokesman said Friday.
Manuel told 20 people in the
Scarfe building that Indian people
need the authority to govern
themselves and Ottawa will not give
them that right,
"In all situations so far the
federal government has seen fit to
deal with aboriginal rights in terms
of extinguishing our rights,' he
said. "Indian government
philosophy says we are responsible
for making our own laws, whether
or   not   the   federal   government
Manuel said local Indian law
should combine traditional native
legislation on adoption, marriage
and divorce with new laws authored
by local Indian bands.
Indians also need a sufficient
land base to live on with enough
resources to provide natives with
necessary goods and services. To do
this they need the cooperation of
the federal government, he said.
Manuel said native land claims
based on aboriginal rights have
been misunderstood by the general
"A lot of non-Indian people
came away with the impression that
we wanted to take over the province."
He said the issue of land claims in
Canada is no different from struggles for freedom in Vietnam and
"They're fighting for a land base
and a right to govern themselves,"
said Manuel. He said Indians can
legally obtain the necessary land
and resources to establish
autonomy and obtain self-
"We don't have to do any illegal
act, it's all possible."
Manuel said Indian government
could be classified as a kind of
sovereignty association, without
breaking away from Canada.
"It would be within the
framework of the constitution, it
wouldn't be a separation," he said.
Indian government should start
in the individual Indian bands —
where they must decide for
themselves who is to be a member
of their community.
"People don't come together
based on race, they come together
on beliefs and philosophy."
TORONTO (CUP) — The push
for greater Canadian content in
universities has affected af least one
area in Ontario — the appointment
of professors.
Statistics released recently by the
Ontario ministry of colleges and
universities showed that 76.6 per
cent of total appointments in.
the province were Canadians in
1978-79, up from 71.3 per cent the
previous year.
The breakdown of statistics
indicated that the appointments of
non-Canadians decreased at 10
institutions, increased at two and
remained constant at four.
Of all 11,881 full-time faculty
members employed during 1977-78,
74.1 per cent were Canadian
citizens, compared to 72.7 per cent
of 11,722 faculty members in 1976-
77, according to Statistics Canada
"If one can have Canadians in
the jobs, it's a very good thing,"
said Ontario Council of University
Faculty Associations director David
Inman. "This is what we were
working towards in the early sixties."
But he added that the quality of
post-secondary education must still
be maintained. Previously, there
were not enough qualified
Canadians to keep the system
going, Inman said. "Now we are
producing enough Canadians to do
the jobs."
The economy will dictate the
future trend of hiring practices in
Ontario, he said.
"If underfunding continues to
work the way it appears to be now,
we may have a remarkable dearth
of Canadian professors."
Inman also speculated that by the
mid-1990s Ontario might be faced
with yet another shortage of post-
secondary instructors. As this
generation of professors enters
retirement, he said. There may not
be enough younger professors to fill
their positions.
History repeats in Canadian prof fight
History repeats itself, but then again so does
UBC's English department.
The recent dispute in the department about
the imminent hiring of a non-Canadian is not a
new occurrence for the English professors involved. They participated in a similar dispute
on the same issue in 1974.
And in both cases the man in the centre of
the conflict is English department head Robert
Jordan has been accused of being more interested in filling vacant posts in the department with American, rather than Canadian,
candidates. Jordan claims the department is
not primarily concerned with hiring Canadian
graduate students, but hires on the basis of
quality and not nationality.
He also claims the dg^rtment is currently 65
per cent Canadian, double ihe percentage il
was 10 years ago.
But associate English professor Ronald
Hatch, who has led the intradepartmenta! protest this \ear, says Jordan's figures are inaccurate. By taking into account the professors
still teaching at UBC who were hired by Joidan
since he became department head in 1969, only
27 per cent of the people hired into the tenuis
stream were Canadian, Hatch says.
This figure is further reduced to 16 per cent
Canadian when Canadian literature professors
are not included.
Hatch began his protest in January when the
department's appointments committee decided
lo b^ing four candidates to UBC to contest for
a senior Shakespearean post. All four candidates are American.
Hatch says this disturbs him because "if we
continue to hire non-Canadians, we shall have
no jobs for Canadians. As a result, students
will not enrol in the graduate schools, causing
lhem to disappear by attrition."
Both Hatch and Robin Mathews, a Carleton
university English professor who has brought
national attention to the percentage of Canadian faculty in universities, say the continued
hiring of Americans seriously damages the op-

Mathews and fellow Carleton

which outlined the serious problem
facing Canadian educators at

Canadian universities for hiring
American candidates over Canadians with similar qualifications
and led to attempts at many universities to increase hirings of Canadians.

Harassment calls open info centre
Peeping Toms are leading
flashers by two to one in the first
weeks of operation of the rape information centre.
Several reports have been made
on sexual harassment on campus,
Lynda Erickson of the women
students' office said Monday.
One of the reports was from
Dianne Waterman, another
member of the women students' office staff, she added.
Waterman said she met a barefooted peeping Tom in the women's
washroom downstairs at Brock
"He just poked his head under
the cubicle of the washroom," said
She added that this was not the
first report of the barefoot peeper.
"Apparently somebody else
reported a similar incident involving
a person with bare feet in
Another report concerned
another UBC staff person encountering a flasher, said Erickson.
"She was jogging along the beach
on her lunch hour, and he (the
flasher) wasn't just a sunbather,"
she said.
Erickson said that her office encourages women students having
•i experiences with any kind of sexual
harassment to contact the women
students' office and report the incidents.
She added that the rape information centre will only be operating on
a limited basis until next
September, as that is the earliest
time that a separate telephone line
can be installed.
Until then, all calls reporting sexual harassment will be taken thro-
ough the women students' office
main telephone line at 228-2415.
Counselling will be limited for
the time being, as women students'
office staff are not all trained to
handle rape crisis emergencies,
Erickson said.
A number of UBC students will
be working with Rape Relief during
the coming summer to learn how to
handle rape crisis calls, said Sally
Thorne of the Alma Mater Society
women's committee.
She added it is hoped that it will
be possible to operate an
information-gathering and
counselling service for sexual harassment victims on a 24-hour basis
starting in September.
The service would be at least partially staffed by trained students,
■.said Thorne.
'Solar power will
lead to Dark Age'
Solar power can be hazardous to
your health and environmentalist
groups are currently plotting with
European royalty to throw Western
society into the Dark Ages, a Fusion Energy Foundation spokesman
claimed Friday.
Steven Bardwell, FEF's plasma
physics director, made those comments in a debate, on the
significance of nuclear power as an
energy source with Greenpeace
member Rod Manning in the SUB
"The issue is not one of nuclear
power versus wind power or sun
power or tidal power," Bardwell
told about 150 people. "The real
issue is whether or not we need
more energy today. Can we afford
to do away with any new supplies of
Bardwell claimed that nuclear
power was much less dangerous
than other forms of energy production and cited figures to support his
argument from the Washington
Resources for the Future group.
The study compared health and
environmental costs of coal power
to that of nuclear power. According
to the figures Bardwell gave, for a
given year, every trillion watts of
power produced by coal resulted in
7,250 deaths, 6 million illnesses and
20,000 acres of used land.

Wong added that the problem of
security was the main reason for
SAC's refusal to book the dance,
because the programs committee
had not been able to say who would
provide security.
"The engineers are having their
engineer's ball on Saturday and the
rugby club is playing a game that
day and hosting a dinner that
night," Wong said.
The engineers and the rugby club
often provide security for AMS
functions for a fee. The AMS programs committee was hoping that
one or the other would be able to do
so for the dance, committee
member Bruce Armstrong said
The programs committee decided
to sponsor the punk dance, featuring the bands D.O.A., the
Subhumans and the Dishrags,
because there seemed to be considerable student interest in the
recently-cancelled concert, Armstrong said.
"The same people that brought it
forward originally decided that it
should go on, even without liquor,"
he said.
The committee decided to avoid
the issue of having liquor at the
dance due to the controversy about
alleged RCMP interference in the
first planned punk event, sponsored
by The Ubyssey.
The same amount of power produced through nuclear generators
caused 200 deaths, 7,000 illnesses,
and used 2,000 acres of land, he
But Manning said he felt sorry
for Bardwell arid his positive view
of nuclear energy.
"I'm sure you all know that
radiation causes leukemia, causes
cancer," said Manning. "You're
not just getting radiation from the
nuclear waste, you're getting it
from uranium mining, and the actual (nuclear) plant's cooling
"Fission power is generally dead
in the United States" he said.
"The situation is that communities
won't let nuclear waste pass
through their townships."
Manning said he doubted the
economic viability of nuclear
power, arguing that the total
amount of energy used in construction, operating, and dismantling of
a nuclear power plant far exceeded
the amount of energy the plant
could ever produce.
"The money put into the nuclear
power industry is basically militarily
motivated," said Manning, a nine
year veteran of Greenpeace. "If
you take a fraction of the amount
of money pumped into nuclear
power and put it into solar or wind
energy, we'd by way ahead of the
Bardwell denied any link between
nuclear energy and increases in
human cancer. He claimed that in
specific age groups the incidence of
cancer has actually fallen in the last
few years, in every category but
lung cancer.
"Risk of cancer increases with
age," said Bardwell. "It's because
people live longer that there seems
to be more cancer."
He also said solar energy is a
dangerous alternative to nuclear
energy. People using solar energy
would fall off of their roofs when
they go up to "chip the ice" off of
their solar panels in the winter, he
Environmentalist group's and
those who promote solar energy are
supporting European aristocrats
who want to see a return to pastoral
society and keep "the majority of
us peasants," he said.
Bardwell argued that if new
sources of energy are not utilized,
the resulting shortages will cause international tension and widespread
famine in the underdeveloped Third
World countries.
"The minimum material prerequisites for a decent existence in
Third World countries are only going to be provided by increases in
energy   production,"   he   said.
"Granted that we do need more
energy," said Bardwell, "you're at
the point where you can say, is
nuclear power a good way of producing energy?
"We do need new energy if we
are going to deal with the world
situation as a whole."

Old foes in faculty dispute
From page 2
"The university is overall doing a
good job hiring Canadians. We've
always had a good record."
But the general feeling in the administration is to have the department settle the dispute privately.
Neither Kenny, Vogt, nor arts dean
Robert Will will comment on the
Mathews was also involved in the
1974 dispute. In that instance, he
wrote a letter to then administration
president Walter Gage complaining
that Jordan had hired Americans
without adequately advertising for
An advertisement in University
Affairs, a Canadian academic journal, did not appear until after the
last date for applications had expired, The Ubyssey reported. Jordan eventually asked Carleton's
president to reprimand Mathews.
At the centre of this year's controversy is the question of searching
well enough to attract Canadian applicants.
Before a foreign academic can be
considered for permanent residency, he or she must receive a validation for employment from a
Canada Employment Centre, according to Ray Chew of UBC's
employment centre.
And that validation will be given
if there is sufficient advertising,
usually in University Affairs, and
adequate time to submit
documents, he added.
"The policy for academics is
slightly less restrictive than for most
other positions."
But a letter by minister Cullen to
all provincial labor ministers clearly
states that "all agencies recruiting
teachers must, with certain
specified exemptions, satisfy
Canada Manpower that suitable
Canadians are not available and
cannot be trained for the job vacancies.
"What the policy states and what
the rules are can be two different
matters. Nothing's cast in
concrete," Chew said.
Hatch says UBC should follow
the example of the University of
Calgary and print a notice at the
bottom of all recruitment advertisements stating that Canadians
will have a greater opportunity for
appointment than non-Canadian
Hatch says even a simple move
like that would encourage more
Canadians to apply for teaching
Department head Jordan says

"better opportunities in the East."

The circus clowns
UBC's Lady Godiva ride has rubbed its nose in
women's rights and wound up smelling like
horse manure.
By glossing over the ride itself in the guise of a
harmless prank, Godiva's promoters, the
engineers, are perpetuating a demeaning and insulting role for women. Godiva is their bird in a
gilded cage; she echoes women's store-bought
image. She's the giftwrapped package with a
sign around her neck: You're welcome to look,
but please don't touch.
And without realizing it, we the students, are
being branded her consumers.
The blatant public display of a nude woman
must be judged as the product of seriously
misguided social attitudes. Godiva commands
no respect for either sex. Her superficial presentation as a silent, smiling woman is the same
display as a nude wax dummy peering wanly
from a store window. She's to be peered at, sized up and rated. But as a woman, nothing
beyond her external self is recognized.
Where does identity lie beyond flesh and
blood? We've got nothing against a nude
woman, but if she's given no other chance to express herself than by public display of her body
she's not a human being. She's a showpiece.
Those who accept the Godiva ride grudgingly
as a tradition impossible to change, are blindly
ignorant. They're just kidding themselves if they
feel the ride will naturally die out on its own
merits. The ride is by no means dying. Instead,
it's endorsing and reiterating a clearly defined
role for women in society — that of glorified sex
Students who claim they see nothing wrong
with the Godiva ride should take a much-needed
look at themselves and their attitudes towards
the opposite sex. For example, some men say
they can enjoy and appreciate a woman's nude
beautiful body. But under what context? Do they
relate to a woman in a healthy, atmosphere of
respect and admiration, or in a public parade
under the scrutiny of hundreds? If they can't see
the difference in the two situations and the attitudes they evoke, then they should stay at the
circus and keep out of the bedroom.
Viewing women as public merchandise under
the context of a spectator sport produces
nothing positive for either sex. Women who
think Godiva glorifies women's role still hold the
erroneous view that a female's external qualities
exist to be praised and appreciated by men. If
you've got it, flaunt it, they say.
But forget it, sisters. ,
If you've got nothing better than your body to
offer people as a personal statement, then
something is grossly lacking upstairs. Without an
intelligent  mind  full  of worthy  opinions  and
ideas, you belong as a flat cardboard figure on a
billboard promoting Ultrabrite.
In deciding what role you plan to carve in
society, the final choice is yours. UBC's Godiva
ride has grossly distorted a once-effective stand
for social reform and molded woman into a
meek, demeaning creature to be ogled by an audience. If you relate to all women the same way a
hooting appreciate crowd applauds a nude
woman on horseback, then examine your personal views.
If after reexamination, you decide you still advocate Godiva, then you'll have no right to be affronted if any person in your future gives you no
credit for your identity, mind or intelligence.
After all, fair's fair.

Godiva poses liberal dilemma
The backlash is on. The pendulum is in full swing away
from the "permissiveness" of the 1960s and early 1970s
towards more restrictive conventions of personal and moral
behavior. One immediately thinks of Anita Bryant and her
bible-thumping friends, but the New Puritanism seems to be
as much the work of supposedly enlightened and progressive
elements as of religious reactionaries. The calls of many
feminist leaders for stricter censorship of pornographic
materials is a prime example, but just as telling is recent reaction of certain individuals to the engineers' planned Lady
Godiva ride. Suddenly we are confronted with all sorts of
Jeremiahs crawling out of the woodwork, moaning and wailing and tearing their hair over this supposed outrage against
humanity, and telling us that it simply cannot be tolerated.
By MICMffi MW1MOf*
Typical of this line of thinking is Charles Hamilton, who
tells us that "the indiscriminate argument that the Godiva
ride should be tolerated because it is a form of human expression, personal behavior, obviously fails to recognize that
there are evils which are impermissible." Impermissible? By
whose standards? By Charles Hamilton's, that is whose! And
therein lies the the very essence of totalitarianism. Behind
many repressive regimes in this world one may find honest
and idealistic men who simply cannot stomach the idea of
allowing other people with differing ideas to stand in the way
of the realization of their goals.
The totalitarian mentality poses very strong temptations
for anyone with a social conscience, and I must admit to not
being totally immune. Reading Doug Collins brings on visions of bodies strung from lampposts. From time to time I
cannot help to think how nice it would be to have a Gulag
somewhere up in the high tundra where we could ship the
Sterling Lyons and Leonard Joneses and other unsavory
reactionaries. However, in the end one must live with the fact
that things cannot be so easy. One of the basic premises upon
which liberal democracy (if you can stomach those dirty
words) rests is that anyone with an opinion or an idea, no
matter how distasteful or repugnant, has a right to be heard.
And, yes, this must apply even to sexist and racist material.
Michael Helfinger is a Ubyssey reporter. Freestyle is a column of opinion and analysis by Ubyssey staffers.
However low one's opinion may be of "the man in the
street", one must credit the average adult Canadian with
enough intelligence and soundness of judgement to recognize
a pamphlet citing the Protocols of the Elders of Zion or
espousing white supremacy as garbage, and to reject pornographic literature or films as acceptable representations of
real life.
If the people do not appear to be exercising such a level of
judgement, then the state is justified, indeed, obliged, to intervene and restrain individuals from taking direct actions of
a racist or sexist nature (i.e. discrimination or violence) and
to educate the masses to the contrary, but it cannot practice
censorship or thought control. Not only is such an approach
dangerous to individual liberty (for it could be used against
other ideas which by some moral or social convention are
considered unacceptable), it is, in the end, futile as well.
Countries which exercise the greatest restrictions on the
availability of pornographic materials tend to experience the
highest incidences of that ultimate crime against women,
Obviously, Charles Hamilton believes that liberal
democracy is decadent, that the people are too innately
depraved to be trusted to decide what is good for them, that
our society must descend into chaos and barbarism if Big
Brother does not maintain a watchful eye over our actions
and thoughts. According to his line of thought, government
must be composed of an enlightened elite, which will proceed
to shove justice and decency (as defined by Charles
Hamilton) down our throats. Just what is Hamilton's actual
political philosophy is difficult to determine. In some
respects, he appears to echo the old Stalinist cry of "fascists
have no right to speak!", though in rejecting the rationalist,
enlightenment line of thought, he comes off sounding more
like some antediluvian High Tory.
Hamilton evokes the memory of Nazism and the
Holocaust in order to prove that the people can't be trusted
and to point out the dangers of passively accepting the
engineers' -actions. I am sorry, but this is not the Weimar
Republic, the gears are not brownshirts (even if their'
behavior and social views may at times suggest otherwise)
and the Lady Godiva ride is not Auschwitz. Hamilton's comparison of the gears' antics to Nazi atrocities is not only
stupid but in bad taste as well. He also fails to realize that
Hitler was able to rise to power largely because of a lack of
acceptance among the German people of the liberal
democratic values he so readily condemns as decadent.
Hamilton tells us that "censorship occurs all the time."
Big deal. Does that mean it is good? Does the RCMP action
against the punk concert justify censorship for any purpose?
He says that "we must live with constraints." However, if
human rights are to have any meaning, then there must be
limits to those constraints. Certainly, society must reserve the
right to restrict property rights and freedom of action where
these directly infringe on the rights of others to freedom of
action and the basic material necessities for a fully human existence. However, Hamilton and his do-gooder buddies are
free to turn around and ignore the gears' spectacle if it is too
much for them to bear. In no way does this infringe on their
freedom of action, and in no way do they have any right to stop it.
Hamilton's use of collectivist principles to justify censorship plays right into the hands of libertarians and free-
enterprisers who try to argue that socialism and the Welfare
State constitute "The Road to Serfdom." The intolerance
displayed by the opponents of the ride can only be seen as a
perversion of progressive principles, with ultimately negative
consequences for the cause of social justice.
In the end, we must accept the hard fact that there are certain vices which have always been with us and will always be
with us. No authority has been able to successfully stamp out
pornography and prostitution. Sunday Jack won't stop the
skin trade, and neither will Charles Hamilton, even if he
charges off down Davie Street, Carrie Nation-style with hatchet in hand, attacking the porn shops and brothels. Similarly, engineering faculties have never been repositories of
enlightened social ideas, and no moral crusade is going to
change that. I am not particularly impressed by the gears"
sexist displays, but I feel that a far greater threat to freedom
and dignity comes from those of all political stripes who fail
to distinguish between areas of day-to-day life which can and
cannot be practically regulated. God protect us from those
who want to protect us from ourselves. Tuesday, March 6, 1979

Higher fees in Kenny's court
This is in response to a recent
editorial which contended that the
provincial government is solely responsible for past and probable
future tuition increases. Certainly
president Kenny has worked very
hard to convince us that his hands
are tied in the matter, and he may
even believe so himself.
The government is, of course,
directly responsible for the
unhealthy state of university
funding. But it is wrong to infer
that this leaves no choice but to increase fees, because that is a
question of priorities. Unfortunately, making education
accessible without regard to
financial status has never been a
priority of our universities. Given
the responsibility of the universities
to the public, I think this is their
greatest failing.
It is understandable, though not
justifiable, that the president finds
it easier to turn down the potential
students who never make it to UBC
than the deans who come calling
each day. It is also understandable
that fees are the easiest variable to
manipulate as long as students (and
potential students) have no effective means to protect their interests.
The irony is that an increase in
fees would not make a significant
contribution to the university
budget anyway. Quite likely, the

What ever happened to good old
rock and roll where the sound was

much apathy on campus. Nothing

Now The Ubyssey wants to put on a

undermining the very spirit which
makes this country so great.
It seems like every group on
campus is giving free disco lessons.
Now I ask you, who is funding
them? Probably some organization
intent on destroying the minds of
our and future generations. We
can't let that happen.

revolution and protest, it's now.

board of governors, under the
guidance of Dr. Kenny, plans to
raise tuition as a sacrifice to appease the gods in Victoria, in the
hope of receiving a larger grant. I
don't doubt that Dr. Kenny has the
best interest of the university at
heart, but I question his interpretation of the university's mandate.
The goals of the university,
especially in the long term, may not
be served by maximizing the budget
by any means available.
Of   course,   students   should
continue to pressure the provincial
government to make an adequate
investment in higher education, as
well as to improve the student aid
system. But anyone concerned with
accessibility should realize that the
university has the direct responsibility for delivering
education. Unless there is a change
in attitude on the part of administration and board members,
lower fees will forever be a cute idea
that isn't practical right now.
The recently announced increase
in bursary funds is a small step in
the right direction. I hope it is a sign
of a real commitment to accessibility, and not another cheap attempt
to justify fee increases.

opposing coaches recognized the

Tide's ebb timely for rugby 'Birds
Neither the rain nor the Tide nor the
gloom of the soggy spring afternoon could
keep the UBC rugby team from a 10-9 victory over Vancouver Island Saturday at
Thunderbird Stadium — but they came
very, very close.
It took a try by Graham Taylor and a
convert by Preston Wiley in the first minute
of injury time to give UBC the win in
McKechnie Cup action against the island
representative team Crimson Tide, who
protested that Rob Greig had stepped out
of bounds with the ball on the play that
won the game.
The controversial play started deep in
UBC's end, with Wiley taking the ball from
scrum and swinging it out to the right side.
By the time the ball reached the wing UBC
had moved 20 metres downfield, and Greig
went another 30 metres before the Tide
fullback angling across the field pinned him
against the sideline. That was when the fun
On his way out of bounds, Greig flung
the ball back into play. Taylor kicked it into
the end zone and then outraced the amazed
island players to fall on the ball and score a
try. Wiley converted from the sideline 18
metres out to give UBC two points and the
Even with the benefit of instant replay it
was impossible to tell if Greig was actually
in bounds when he released the ball. Ray
Harris, the physical education student who
films sports events for showings in the Pit,
ran the videotape in the stands after the
game but that just produced more controversy among the gathered fans.
The match was easily the toughest game
the 'Birds have played all year. The island
forwards demonstrated early their strength,
consistently pushing UBC off the ball.
After an early Tide penalty goal, the
Thunderbirds apparently tied the score
when both linesmen signalled that an 18
metre penalty kick by Dave Whyte was
good. The referee had other ideas and from
midfield called the kick wide. A drop-kick
by Crimson Tide at the 27 minute mark
made the half time score 6-0.
UBC finally scored at the 13 minute mark
of the second half when the 'Birds
developed an overlap on the right side and
Greig simply outran most of the island team
before diving across the line. The try was set
up on the previous play when some good
passwork on the left side took the 'Birds
from midfield to within a metre of the
Tide goal before Andrew Bibby was driven
out of bounds. After an island clearing kick
went only 10 metres in bounds, UBC won a
lineout and swung the ball to Greig. Whyte
missed the convert.
The 6-4 score raised UBC's hopes but
they found it impossible to break through
the tough island defense. The 'Birds were
fortunate on several occasions when
threatening Tide drives were stopped by
penalties or by excellent clearing kicks by
Taylor. When the island reps scored a
penalty goal at the 34 minute mark, UBC
appeared doomed until the late heroics.
The game outlined a flaw in the Thunder-

are alive and living at UBC under
the guise of the Thunderbird ice
hockey team. The team perfected its
act last weekend in the final games
of the year, losing 6-0 to the University of Alberta Golden Bears Friday
but rebounding Saturday to win
Friday night the 'Bears were apparently still upset about two losses
the previous weekend to the University of Calgary, as they relentlessly
pounded the 'Birds and opened up
a 4-0 first period lead. The UBC
players seemed reluctant to go into
the corners with the physically
massive Edmonton players, and only the play of goalie Ron Patterson
kept the score down. The 'Bears
scored a goal in each of the last two
periods to win 6-0.
The first period of Saturday
night's game was a complete reversal of Friday's action. The
Thunderbirds were the aggressors,
knocking the 'Bears off the puck
and managing a consistent offensive thrust. UBC got goals from Jim
McLaughlin, Rob Jones and Frank
Gorringe in the first period for a 3-0
After the break the 'Bears again
came out charging and scored four
straight goals in the second period
as the 'Birds wilted slightly.
McLaughlin's second goal of the
game with 40 seconds left in the
period gave UBC a 4-4 tie before
the last 20 minutes.

Steve Radvak finished fifth.
Hogg set three CIAU records
with her wins in the 100 metre
freestyle and the 100 and 200 metre
backstroke. Janice Blocka won the
100 and 200 metre breaststroke and
placed fifth in the 200 metre individual medley, while Chris
Lovett-Doust placed fifth in the 100
metre fly and sixth in the 200. The
medley relay of Hogg, Blocka,
Lovett-Doust and Karen van Sacker
won the gold medal in a new record
While Hughes and Hogg are the
only name swimmers to graduate,
replacing them will be a major task
for coach Jack Kelso who has
several high school swimmers from
local clubs interested in attending
UBC next year.
Kelso acknowledged that by
recruiting in Vancouver he will be in
direct competition with Simon
Fraser University coach Paul
Savage, but he thought Savage
would welcome the competition.
"I think I have more to offer
than him," added Kelso. "We compete nationally rather than with the
Americans. (His) women's team is
now defunct, anyway."
Kelso downplayed the advantage
of athletic scholarships at SFU, saying that as far as he could ascertain,
financial help at the Burnaby campus consisted only of free tuition.
He also has an eye on some of the
$80 million which federal amateur
sport minister Iono Campagnolo
recently promised.-
"I may be reading between the
lines, but some of that $80 million
may be available to universities,"
he said. "I'd like to see some of this
money keeping university athletes
in Canada."

SOBER AS A JUDGE (which doesn't really mean much in this town), UBC's Leslie Fortune walks straight but
perilous line in balance beam preliminaries Friday night in Canadian university championships at War Mepiorial
Gym. Fortune had second and fourth to lead women's team to fifth place finish. See story below.
UBC flips, flops, flies to fine finish
Edward Osborne and Leslie Fortune led small UBC squads to surprisingly strong showings last
weekend in the Canadian In-
teruniversity Athletic Union men's
and women's ' gymnastics championships held at War Memorial
Osborne, with a third place finish
in the floor exercises and a fourth in
the horizontal bar, was the only
male competitor to make the finals
for UBC.
Fortune, competing in her last
meet for UBC, placed second in the
floor exercises and fourth in the
balance beam as the women's team
placed fifth overall despite having
only three members.
"We're a small but happy team,"
said women's coach Alena Branda
after the meet, in which Fortune,
Laurel McKay and Anne Brunner
each made the finals in at least one
McKay placed sixth in the vault
and eighth in the beam, while Brunner placed fifth in the floor exercises after qualifying for the finals
as a substitute when Cathy Corns of
York University sprained her ankle
in warm-up.
Corns, who had one of the top
qualifying scores entering the meet,
was only one of several to be knocked out of the competition by injuries. Marc Esprecht of York, who
won the men's all-round title Fridav
night, injured a hand and could not
compete in Saturday's finals. Peggy
Bureaud of University of Alberta
stunned the audience Friday night
when in the middle of her floor
routine she suddenly hobbled off
the floor and collapsed on a nearby
mat with a double sprain of her left
York won the men's title for the
sixth straight year while Alberta
took the women's crown. Ann
Samson of the University of
Waterloo won the women's overall
The UBC women's team had
fewer competitors than any other
team in the top five finishers.
