Array Cat-calls greet Shaw at Friday forum
By KEVIN McGEE
Friday's forum on education accessibility
turned into a turkey shoot, with administration vice president Michael Shaw reluctantly playing the role of the turkey.
The five speaker forum, sponsored by the
Students for an Accessible Education, drew
150 people to the SUB auditorium.
Following opening remarks, students
repeatedly asked Shaw, chair of the Advisory Committee on Budget Retrenchment, why there is no student representation on the committee.
Shaw continually evaded the question.
"The committee is composed of various
academics," he said. "It is an advisory
committee, not decision making, and any
of our recommendations which president
Kenny takes will go before the senate
budget committee and the board of governors, both of which have student representation."
Pressed further on the subject, Shaw said
he   had   personal   opinions   on   student
representation which he did not care to
comment on.
He advocated "quiet diplomacy" in dealing with cutbacks, adding the committee's
progress should not be leaked. The statement was greeted with cat calls.
Shaw was asked what UBC would do if
the government froze funding for next year
at the same level as this year, as they have
threatened to do to B.C. colleges.
"We're in a bad enough situation right
now, I couldn't begin to imagine how rough
things would be," Shaw said.
Political science professor Phil Resnick
was the most enthusiastically received of the
five speakers. Resnick said that a group of
presidents of Ontario universities had called
for students contributing 25 per cent of
operating costs, a move he said would result
in tuition fees of $2,000 to $3,000.
"I don't think we need American models
of university any more than we need
American models of economics," Resnick
said, eliciting an outbreak of applause from
the audience.
Resnick said that Shaw's committee
should open up all of the university's financial books, and called for an open discussion of university financing.
Resnick questioned federal government
spending priorities. "Facing the twin headed Hydra of unemployment and inflation,
the federal government is axing higher
education while allowing obscene profits
for banks and oil companies," he said.
SAE representative Lynne Mansell opened the forum, saying, "Our goal is to inform as many students as possible about the
issues, and*outrage them into action."
She said the provincial government needed to be told that students were unwilling to
remain scapegoats.
Shaw spoke next. "I'm here as an indication that the administration cares ... all
universities have the same goals of high
quality of education and accessibility," he
said.

Tuition hike arrives today
York TAs vote
to end strike
By JULIE WHEELWRIGHT
Ontario's lowest paid teaching assistants Monday voted 75 per cent in
favor of accepting a contract with only a 14 per cent wage increase, ending
a week-long strike at York University.
"The silly buggers voted to accept the thing," said Tony Woolfson, the
Canadian University Educational Workers national president.
Woolfson said the contract gave the 750 member local a 14 per cent or
more salary increase. But the union had earlier asked for a 20 per cent increase for the teaching assistants and 100 per cent increase for tutors.
The union did gain some ground on investigating classroom size, another
issue in the strike, Woolfson said. A committee mandated to report to the
union by March 1 will examine the problem, he said.
He added the union will begin bargaining talks with the university administration on April 1 on the numbers of students in tutorials.
CUEW spokesperson Paul Winterton said student numbers in tutorials
have risen to an average of 30 students from about 12 five years ago.
"The largest tutorial we found had about 82 students. It's caused by a
combination of underfunding and increased enrolment," said Winterton.
Woolfson added the union "fought off a major battle" to maintain job
security for part time faculty members.
Winterton said the university administration was attempting to withdraw
part time faculty members after contracts had been signed.
The teaching assistants at York receive only $4,600 for an eight month
contract making them the lowest paid TA's in Ontario, he said. UBC TA's
receive between $4,900 and $5,100 for the academic year.
The York TA's receive 30 per cent less than their counterparts at
McMaster university.
Winterton said the faculty, staff and students had been very supportive
of the striking union. Faculty members cancelled classes even though the
administration threatened to fire any member who refused to cross the
picket line to teach.
Postal workers refused to deliver mail, truck drivers halted supplies,
Toronto Transit Authority bus drivers would not drop passengers on campus and about 30 per cent of students stayed home.
Exec regrets vote
UBC students can expect a 15 per
cent tuition fee hike next year, student board of governors representative Anthony Dickinson said
Monday.
The board meets today at 2 p.m.
to make a final decision. Board
members voted last year to index
tuition fees to at least 10 per cent of
the university's operating budget.
University students across
Canada are faced with large tuition
fee increases.
Increases are expected at these institutions:
• McGill, Concordia University
and L'Universite de Montreal tuition fees may double because the
Quebec government is removing the
current freeze on tuition fees;
• fees at Universite de Quebec a
Montreal will rise 40 per cent;
• the University of Alberta
board of governors expects a 30 per
cent fee increase;
• Simon Fraser University
students will pay at least 22.7 per
cent more next year, but could pay
as much as 64 per cent higher fees,
student board member Ted
NcNabb said.
SFU students, who now pay less
than 10 per cent of the university
budget, will likely pay 11 per cent
next year.
The cost for SFU visa students
could rise between 200 and 385 per
cent, McNabb said. The visa
students will be driven away by the
high fees, he said.
McNabb said he felt the visa student fee increase policy was
discriminatory. Only rich students
can afford the increases, he said.
One of the most vocal supporters
of student council's recent decision
to appoint rather than elect a student to senate is having second
thoughts on the issue, saying it sets
"a nasty precedent."
James Hollis, Alma Mater Society external affairs co-ordinator,
said Monday he will not vote for
ratification of the chosen student at
Wednesday's council meeting, and
will instead try to get the motion
reconsidered.
"When the issue came to council,
there   was   never   a   third   choice
Women sought by Ranger strangers
The reputation of the American aircraft carrier USS
Ranger has sunk even lower in the eyes of some UBC
students.
Last week women in Walter Gage, Place Vanier and
Totem Park residences received invitations from the
HMCS Kootenay's chief petty officer inviting them to
a cocktail party aboard the Victoria based ship
Hallowe'en night to meet officers from the Ranger.
"When I first saw it I thought it was a joke," said
Gage Tower resident Lee Fraser. "But when I heard all
the stuff on the radio I thought it must be real."
Fraser said she thought the invitation, which was addressed "dear ladies," had bad connotations.
"Some people (in residence) felt exploited, like you
are a girl in residence and you're sleazy Also it was ad-
dressed 'dear ladies'. If it was just a friendly thing why
didn't they invite everyone."
"I was vaguely disgusted," said Fraser.
A Canadian armed forces spokesperson aboard the
HMCS Kootenay said Monday about 300 people from
the residences nursing school and law courts attended
the party.
He added the invitation was sent to the women
because "they didn't need any more men."
Gage Community Council secretary treasurer
Sharon Bowd said another invitation was sent from the
Ranger inviting women to a party at a Vancouver
hotel, Friday night.
"A lot of the girls were very interested. A lot of
them thought it was a chance to go out and have a
good time, a party," she said.
presented, it was either appoint or
elect someone to senate," Hollis
said. "It may disappoint the people
who applied, but I think we should
leave the position vacant until formal senate elections are held next
January.
"It's better to retrace our steps
now than set a dangerous precedent .''
At its meeting Oct. 26, council
decided to appoint a student to
replace the at large senate seat held
by Mark Crawford, despite some
opposition from members concerned about the lack of democracy in
the selection process.
Crawford's resignation came too
late to run a senate byelection concurrently with the Oct. 9 AMS vice
president byelection, and Hollis was
one of several council members opposed to holding another byelection
because of the cost and length of
term involved.
But now Hollis sees the appointment as dangerous. "The problem
is, where do we draw the line?" he
said. "How short a term does it
have to become before we start appointing presidents and board of
governors representatives?" (There
are only four months remaining in
the vacant senate position.) Page 2

Students must
stop apathy
From page 1
Awards officer Byron Hender
said students put up with incredibly
poor service from the government
in negotiating student loans.
Hender slammed student apathy,
and urged students to write the
ministry of education.
"If you've been done in by the
government, act yourself, don't
wait for someone else to do
something," Hender said.
He added there has been a
gradual decrease in students applying for financial aid over the past
few years. One in four students applied this year, as opposed to one in
three in past years, he said.
Hender said it is regrettable the
government has not looked into the
reasons for the decline.
He added the awards office is
concerned about the levels of aggregate debt. He said the average
loan debt upon graduation for B.C.
students was $3,500, according to
statistics from the federal government.

Maybe she is a little starry-eyed,

as well.
She's made some wise choices, including her decision on drinking. Not

The interesting thing is, her

Nor has it made the city a

U.S. warship's presence protested
By JANET WHYTE
Two members of the Greenpeace
Foundation were arrested Friday
while attempting to prevent the
American aircraft carrier USS
Ranger from anchoring in English
Bay.
Greenpeace held a protest rally at
Jericho Park Friday morning, then
sent more than 30 boats full of protestors to meet the Ranger.
They were protesting the
Ranger's presence in Vancouver
during Nuclear Disarmament
Week. The Ranger holds aircraft
capable of carrying nuclear
weapons.
Vancouver police speared a
Greenpeace zodiac inflatable raft
and arrested Michael Manolson and
Joyce McLean.

Greenpeace members steered the
zodiacs beneath the Ranger's anchor, trying to keep the anchor
from touching water.
The protest was intended to be

strictly non-violent, Greenpeace national director Patrick Moore said.
It was only the police who used
dangerous methods, he said.
Moore called Friday's action an

by nuke-capable Ranger
"extremely successful symbolic
protest" because the zodiacs kept
the Ranger from anchoring for a
short time.
"There were no injuries to
anybody, only two zodiacs were
damaged, and only two Greenpeace
members were arrested. The protest
will awaken people all across
Canada to the disarmament movement," Moore said.
According to Moore the entry of
the USS Ranger into English Bay
was an act of intimidation, not one
of good will.
"If they want to send a good will
mission they should send a symphony orchestra, a soccer team, or
a love boat — anything but a
nuclear weapons system — into the
port of Vancouver, he said.
The Canadian government did
not invite the Ranger to Vancouver,
but had to "knuckle under" to
American "muscle-flexing,' Moore
said. This is not a routine mission,
or merely rest and relaxation for the
crew, but "gunboat diplomacy," he
said.
The Ranger's arrival is intended
to remind Canadians they "live
under the cloud of the nuclear umbrella of the U.S." and to tell them
"stop arguing about fishing,
energy, and other things," Moore
said.
The American government is attempting to force solutions to legal
and economic issues through
warlike manoeuvers, he said.
Federal and provincial cutbacks
are turning universities into
technical institutions, four arts
senator candidates charged Monday.
"Technical institutes exist to turn
out quick professionals, and universities are supposed to provide a
rounded education," said Lisa
Hebert, arts senator candidate at an
all candidates meeting in Buch. 104.
Hebert with other candidates
Eva Busza, Torie Darnbrough, and
Aurora Mas kail said there is a
decreasing emphasis on funding
liberal arts programs and cutbacks
are continuing.
"The university should be a place
where the human mind can be
developed and where cultural
distinction can be maintained. It's
through the arts that our culture
and our civilization can develop,"
said Busza.
"Money has to go hand in hand
with equality," and she added funding should be allocated equally to
all faculties.
Darnbrough said attitudes must
be changed to revive interest in arts
programs. "I think that you have to
show arts as not a joke," she said.
Maskall said she was also concerned about the funding overemphasis of technical faculties, "I'm
what you call a frosh, but I'm not
ignorant. A university is not a job
training institution, it's a mind
training institution.
Hebert charged if tuitions continue to rise, universities will
become elitist institutions. "We
should not let money hungry politicians conduct our academic
affairs," she added.
Elections will be held Nov. 4
from 4:30 to 9:30 p.m. in

'Pornography threatens some with violence'
By JULIE WHEELWRIGHT
The most difficult social issue
pornography raises is not its sexual
but violent content, a Simon Fraser
University   philosophy   professor
said Monday.
"(These issues) are concerned
with its sometimes recommending,
condoning or portraying acts of
physical coersion, such as rape, in-
Axworthy worthy of axing-Grit
By CRAIG BROOKS
The federal minister of immigration should resign or be fired
because of his discriminatory immigration policies, a federal liberal
candidate said Thursday.
"As a Liberal, I cannot believe
such outright discrimination (in the
policy) exists," Vancouver South
candidate Patrick Graham told 20
people in SUB 212.
Employment and immigration
minister Lloyd Axworthy's policy is
the "opposite of liberalism," he
said.
Graham, an Irish immigrant
himself, charged that East Indians
are being "carefully singled out for
punishment" by the minister.
He said East Indians must apply
for immigration to Canada from
outside the country, while potential
immigrants from other countries
can apply from within Canada.
While Canada has more than 30
immigration offices in Europe,
there is only one in India Graham
said. "Immigration officers are in
the wrong countries."
Current immigration policy is
overly complicated, badly run, and
a "gaggle of bureaucracy," he
said. "It is a system that keeps people out of this country."
"We force people to break the
law by our stupid laws."
Graham would like to see a
"more fair, more in touch with
reality" immigration policy.
"In the next ten years, we may
need as much as one million more
workers. We should not wait until
the last minute to ensure we have
the workers.
"What we need is a minister who
is not afraid to do what is
necessary, one who is concerned,
informed and capable of doing
what is needed," Graham told the
largely Liberal audience.
The immigration of one million
people would not harm Canadian
employment prospects because
there is no current unemployment
problem he said. "What we need is
a redefinition of employment."
Only three to four per cent of the
workforce is actually unemployed
Graham said. "I have nothing to
base (the figures) on, it's my conjecture."
Graham also spoke on the
general topic of racism, which he
said is at its worst in forty years.
The Ku Klux Klan should not be
permitted to exist he said.
"Any organization that preaches
racial hatred has no rights. It
should not be given any platform
(to express its views) in our
society."
Authorities in government give
tacit approval to racism by ignoring
the problem he said.
voluntary bondage, torture and
mutilation and sex between adults
and children," Susan Wendell told
about 40 people in Buch. 203.
Magazines, films or other
materials recommending or condoning such actions should not be
exposed to children and only to
adults voluntarily, she said.
"The sale and distribution, as
well as display, of certain sorts of
depictions and dramatizations
should be prohibited. The onus
should be on those people selling or
distributing depictions or
dramatizations ... to guarantee
that they were merely simulations
of these acts," said Wendell.
But she added the sale and
distribution of all forms of pornography should be restricted.
"If we take the right to freedom
of expression seriously, the
presumption in its favor must be a
strong one that cannot be overridden by minor bad consequences of
its exercise."
Wendell cited annoyance,
discomfort or even moral outrage at
what is being expressed as not sufficient harm to justify restriction of
expression.
But not all methods of preventing
harmful consequences from actions
are acceptable, she said. "If the
availability of some pornography
clearly incited so many men to commit rape that adequate protection
could not be provided for women if
men moved about freely, it would
be better to restrict the availability
of pornography than have a curfew
for all men."
The harm coercive pornography
causes when seen or heard involuntarily she said is equivalent to the
harm of direct violent threats or
coercion.
"Depictions which condone
violence against women will cause
more fear and anxiety in women
who live in a society like ours,
where women know that such
violence occurs frequently that in a
society where it rarely occurs."
Women, children and gay men,
who are frequently subject to unprovoked violence, will suffer most
when members of their group are
shown as victims in pornography,
she said.
"We recognize the need to protect people from the harm that
direct threats cause; we do not
regard threats just as indicators of
probable harm to come but as
causes of significant harm in
themselves." Page 4

Stop the secrets
Michael Shaw, what are you hiding? Your performance at last Friday's financial cutbacks forum was
the most blatant piece of stonewalling since the infamous exploits of the Watergate mob.
Why did you repeatedly avoid answering the question of why there is no student representation on the
Advisory Committee for Budget Retrenchment?
What sort of quiet diplomacy are you practising
which is so sensitive that if word got out any progress
would   go down the drain?
One student suggested that the administration is
quietly looking into ways to comply with the budget
restrictions being imposed by the Social Credit
government.
You certainly didn't divulge any information which
would reassure an uneasy student populace to the
contrary.
Do you hold us in such contempt that you won't
even deign to tell us your opinion of student representation?
It is touching to note that, as a university vice president, you regarded your presence at the forum as a
gesture of good faith indicating the administration's
concern for students.
A public statement to the commercial media would
be more appreciated than a token appearance
mouthing vague platitudes.
Why are we asking you these questions? You've
never bothered answering in the past.
Awards officer Byron Hender was on the right track
when he said that students are being done in by the
provincial government.
While we have no plaudits to hand out to the administration, the real culprits hide safely in Victoria.
A unified stand between students, administration
and faculty is needed if the people in the ministry of
education are to sit up and take notice.
When the vice president of UBC tosses aside student input the way he might a Bie disposable razor,
the possibility of such a coalition becomes more
remote.

Issues at stake in arts race
The issues are starting to surface.
Perhaps with the heightening student awareness, government and
administrators will begin to realize
that they are financially tightening
the wrong areas. Students have the
least resources to compensate for
the university's budgetary shortfalls
or the government's changing
priorities. Just because they say
they haven't got the cash, doesn't
mean that students do.
The students' (in)ability to compensate for post-secondary financial troubles has been plainly
depicted by James Hollis, Alma
Mater Society external affairs coordinator, at the October board of
governors meeting. He took inflation into account, using the Vancouver consumers price index, and
showed that since 1976-77 tuition
has risen five per cent, student earning power has declined 10 per cent,
and student aid has decreased 33
per cent (The Ubyssey, Oct. 16).
Students do not have to be
resigned to their fate. The facts and
figures are just waiting for students
to take and present them! Under
the  realitv   of the  pressures    the
bodies that attend classes are
becoming more aware and active.
On campus, more interested and
concerned groups are forming; and
student representation is becoming
more academic and serious.
Of course, the ball needs to be
carried further. All of UBC's financial decisions are made in the board
of governors; and financial recommendations, UBC plans, policy and
all academic decisions are made in
the senate. I don't think I need to
reinforce that we need strong
representation now.
Please allow me to introduce
myself. My name is Lisa Hebert and
I am running for student arts
representative on senate Wednesday, Nov. 4. On senate, there are 17
students out of 87 members, so it is
very hard for a student to suggest
that he or she could bring about
drastic change, but students can
voice their opinions, bring forward
proposals and hope to mediate
general decisions.
How have I been involved with
UBC? I have lived on the UBC cam-
ous for over four vears. and have
worked full and part-time for a year
and a half for campus faculty. I
supported the Public Interest
Research Group last year, and this
year I am doing organizing and interviewing on Cross Currents, a
public interest radio show on CITR.
I am involved in the Students for an
Accessible Education.
I have a rapport with students on
the board of governors, the AMS,
the grad committee and the arts
undergraduate society, and I feel
that I will be able to communicate
productively for the students.
If someone else gets the job, all
the power to them, but I would like
to stress that I am the only senate
candidate running on my past experience at UBC. I am committed
to student involvement. I am not
afraid to be vocal, and I am
motivated by the issues. I'll do what
I can.
If you are in arts and have not
voted before, please come to
Buchanan, second floor, tomorrow. The issues are grave!

Firemen fight MD
The University Endowment Land
firefighters would like to take this
opportunity to draw to the attention of your readers that this
Wednesday, Nov. 4, has been
declared our yearly campaign day
for Muscular Dystrophy. On this
day, off-duty firefighters intend to
have the following activities for collecting donations:
• pairs of firefighters will be
roving the campus seeking donations;
• starting at 10 a.m. and going
until 6 p.m. there will be a FREE
car wash at University Blvd. and
East Mall, open to anyone wishing
their vehicle cleaned. However, the
firefighters will ask if you would
like to donate to the Muscular
Dystrophy fund;
• there  will  be voluntary toll
booth donation stations set up at
16th and S.W. Marine and at
Wesbrook and Thunderbird Blvd.
where passing motorists may make
donations to the Muscular
Dystrophy fund.
M.D. donation boxes are also set
up throughout campus to collect
your donation should you happen
to miss Wednesday's activities.
We urge all students, faculty, and
staff to support us in our yearly
M.D. campaign. The work for this
campaign is done strictly on a
voluntary basis with 100 per cent of
the donated funds going directly to
the Muscular Dystrophy Association. It can only work with the
generous support of you, the
public.

'I'll give a damn'
Give a damn. It's up to you.
Now, more than ever, it is up to
the students of UBC to take an active interest in their school or it may
not remain an institution for
everyone, as it was originally intended .
The federal government's policy
on contributions to provincial
education expires in the spring of
1982. Already proposals for further
federal funding look grim. The
liberal arts programs in most
universities are being quietly phased
out already as funds flow directly
from the University Council of
B.C. to applied sciences here at
UBC, ignoring the university's $7.2
million shortfall in its annual
operating budget.
Yes, the situation can and will get
worse unless you — the student —
take action.
What can you do? The UBC arts
students can support their organizations such as the arts undergraduate
society, and the Students for Accessible Education. Also, you can
help to elect an arts student
representative to the UBC senate
this Wednesday. The senate has had
no arts representative thus far this
year, a year which is going to be extremely crucial to the survival of the
arts.
My name is Aurora Maskall, and
I am vying for the position of arts
senator this Wednesday, Nov. 4.
As arts senator, I would work
directly with the AUS and support
them with my efforts at senate. I
hope to internally create ways for
students to constructively show
their concerns and have them heard
by the administrative bodies of the
university.
Outside of senate, I feel that the
public must be made aware of the
benefits of higher education and
that pressure must be applied to the
provincial,   as   well   as   federal,
government now! This can be accomplished in a variety of ways,
such as a protest march. It's been 60
years since the Great Trek; maybe
it's time for another one.
When the governments tell the
university what to spend money on,
the university's autonomy is lost.
The arts faculty in particular is
threatened. It us up to us, the
students, to show the government
that we are more than just dollar
signs. We must maintain the quality
of our education.
If elected arts senator, I will do
my best to make these goals realized.

Kudos for truth
Kudos to you, The Ubyssey, for
running True American Atrocities.
It's about time the true nature of
our neighbors was shown for what
it really is. We don't need True
USSR atrocities and the like —
Southam and Thomson readily dish
up their newest "atrocity." If people don't like the truth, too bad, it's
not always "them" who are the bad
guys.

Finals start Thurs.
The top two women's field
hockey teams from the Canada
West, Ontario-Quebec, and Atlantic regions will be at UBC this
Thursday through Sunday to compete in the national championships.
The opening match is between
UBC, the current national champions, and the University of Toronto, 1 p.m. on MacGregor field.
The six teams participating include UBC, the University of Victoria, York University, Toronto
Dalhousie University and the
University of New Brunswick.
In the Ontario-Quebec region
final last weekend, York upset
Toronto 1-0 on a penalty stroke.
Toronto had won at their two
previous encounters. Dalhousie
beat UNB in a reverse of last years
Atlantic final.
UBC coach Gail Wilson said in
an interview after UBC's win over
UVic in the Canada West championships Oct. 27 that the competition will be tough.
But she added, "if the team plays
as they did against UVic, we have a
good chance at the title."
She said if it rains, UBC and
UVic will have an edge over the
other teams. Hockey is played all
year round on the west coast compared to other parts of Canada
where the season is shorter.
Teams to beat should be York,
who have four national players, and
Toronto, made up largely of Ontario provincial players.
Last year's final in Toronto caused quite a stir among York and
Toronto fans. Toronto, the team
UBC defeated 1-0 in the final was
coached  by  the  woman  who  in
troduced Wilson to hockey fifteen
years ago.
Marina van der Merwe, who also
took the national team, coached
Toronto when Wilson was a student
there. After playing on the Ontario
senior team for nine years, Wilson
moved to Vancouver in 1977 to take
over the UBC team. She has since
led UBC to two national victories in
1980 and in 1978 against Toronto.
Final game this weekend will be
held 10 a.m. at MacGregor field.

UBC's TERRI DRAIN
season's top scorer
Hockey historical
In 1890 while the Americans were
fighting the Spanish in Mexico,
field hockey was developing in Vancouver for the first time in North
America.
"The UBC women's field hockey
team is following a long tradition of
high standards and hockey excellence that dates back to the inception of UBC in 1915," says Barbara Schrodt, team coach from
1957 to 1976.
"The team that beat the University of Victoria last Sunday (at the
Canada West Championships)
would almost certainly have beat
my best teams ten years ago," says
Schrodt who has been active at all
levels of play in her career.
She adds the calibre of play has
improved with increasing opportunities for women to play on
regional and provincial teams.
UBC has been closely associated
with the sport's growth in the lower
mainland, the province and
Canada. The first recorded field
hockey match in North America
was in 1896 between members of
the Vancouver Ladies Club.
When UBC was founded in 1915,
field hockey had been played in
Vancouver high schools for more
than a decade so it was natural that
the field hockey club was one of the
first women's athletic clubs on campus.
Early play at UBC was hampered
by lack of competition and the
1918-1919 flu epidemic. UBC was
instrumental in forming the Lower
Mainland Women's Grass Hockey
Association in 1927 which became
the Vancouver Women's Field
Hockey Association.
The league title, and the women's
Big Block Club formed in 1930,
provided a serious motive for UBC
teams. More women participated
in athletics with a keener sense of
competition. The first Vancouver
all-star team, formed in 1938, included several UBC players. They
played a Los Angeles touring team
in Vancouver under floodlights; the
first floodlit hockey game played in
the nation.
Elizabeth Miller (nee Maclnnes)
was captain and Big Block winner
in 1940 and 1941. She says her most
vivid recollections, not surprisingly,
are of playing in the mud and rain.
And she says the team was reliable.
"I used to live in North Van and
every Saturday morning, hungover,
we'd have to take the street car to
the ferry, take the ferry across to
downtown and then take another
street car to Connaught Park but
we always made it."
Miller said they played teams like
ex-Britannia, and the ex-Grads with
a good team spirit. "We always
played our hearts out and held our
heads in our hands with
hangovers."
Audrey Hardwick, (nee
Chownes), who played from 1937
to 1939, says she did not remember
being hungover, but did recall the
mud and rain. On several occasions
she says the team cleared the playing fields of snow before games.
"Hockey at that time probably
wasn't as prestigous or competitive
as it is now but it was very popular.
We always had enough for two or
three teams. Not many people watched the games, we played because
we liked it. In those days a trip to
Victoria was a big trip."
From the 1940s until the Canada
West league was formed in 1967,
UBC played in the Vancouver
league and against American teams
from Oregon and Washington.
They almost always dominated the
American league but usually confronted tougher competition with
the Vancouver teams.
For seveal seasons they won every
game. The first team to represent
Canada internationally was composed entirely of Vancouver
players, with two thirds from UBC.
It toured to Australia in 1956.
UBC and UVic have historically
been the main contenders for the
Canada West league title. Nation
wide university championships were
only established in 1977. Ontario
university teams, especially the
University of Toronto and York are
currently extremely difficult to beat
and provide many of Canada's national players. Current national
team members are about half and
half from Ontario and B.C.
The most important international
competitions are the world cup
tournaments, begun in 1973.
Women's field hockey was made an
Olympic sport in 1980, just in time
for the Moscow boycott. The 1979
World Cup was the first Olympic
qualifying tournament. This tournament, in which Canada placed
ninth, has since stimulated growth
in the sport nationally. It was appropriately held at UBC.
WOMEN'S FIELD HOCKEY team has good shot at taking top spot in the national championships starting Thursday at UBC. UBC is currently on top of the league and is looking in good shape for weekend action. UBC expects
tough competition from University of Victoria, which has provided Thunderettes with hard contests all year.
Tourney concludes with final game, 10 a.m., at MacGregor field.
Hockey tour improves team
Last April the UBC field hockey
team departed for Glasgow and the
beginning of their Great Britain
tour. An International Invitational
Tournament was held jointly by the
Glasgow University Athletic Club
and the Hillhead Hockey Club in
commemoration of their centenary.
Sixteen teams attended the tournament; UBC was one of two from
overseas.

After seven games, UBC has
amassed more points thain all other
teams but one. This team, the
British Universities Sports Federation was composed of the creme de
la creme of British universities.
In the highlight of the tour, UBC
beat BUSF and won the championship.
Following the tournament, UBC
embarked on a playing tour of
Liverpool, Cardiff, Cambridge,
Dover and London. They won five
of their nine matches, lost three and
tied one.
Many of their matches were
played on Red Gra fields. This type
of surface is hard with a loose
gravel covering and the ball moves
quickly  although   traction   is  dif
ficult. UBC took a while to adjust
to the surface whereas the British
seemed to play better on it.
Coach Gail Wilson said that the
tour gave UBC a wide variety of experience that has benefited the team
this year. The competition was
divided among club sides, universities and physical education colleges.
The strength of British hockey
lies in their club teams. The university teams seemed to be the least
prepared.
Wilson said the good teams in
Britain rely on fitness and basic
skills and don't do anything 'fancy'
as far as strategy goes. Their
greatest asset is their ability to play
together and they use each other
well. Page 6

Steele nabs Dinos' victory
By JOHN BOYLE
In a game that meant nothing,
the UBC Thunderbirds played
serious football, downing the
University of Calgary Dinosaurs
25-16 Friday night in a downpour at
Thunderbird Stadium.
The win closes out the season for
UBC and gives them what head
coach Frank Smith wanted, a 7-1
record. Calgary, 3-4, are now out of
the playoff picture.
Runningback Glen Steele was the
biggest reason for the victory.
Steele, behind some fine blocking,
showed why he is the nation's
leading rusher as he rambled for 259
yards and two touchdowns.
The first came on a three yard
plunge late in the first half after a
brilliant 60-yard run which brought
the ball to the Calgary 12. The second came on an eight yard run in
the third quarter. Steele set this one
up on a 52 yard scamper.
Ken Munro converted both
touchdowns.
Steele went out late in the contest
with a sprained ankle, but Smith is
hopeful that he will be ready for the
playoffs   in   two   weeks.   "Some
'Birdwatch
Soccer
After a promising start in
September the men's soccer team
finished its season on a dismal note
Friday with a 2-1 loss to the University of Alberta.
UBC opened its Canada West
soccer season by taking seven of
eight possible points. The second
half of the season was the exact opposite of the first as UBC lost seven
out of a possible eight points.
In the Alberta game, played on
Wolfson field in a steady
downpour, UBC opened the scoring with a brilliant goal by Tom
Wilkinson. Wilkinson ran on to the
ball in space at the Alberta 25 yard
line, played wall pass with Bruce
Biles and hit a drive into the lower
right hand side of the net.
Alberta then  scored two goals
before half time for the win. The
loss   evens   out   UBC's   record   at
3-3-2.
Hockey
Last year the UBC men's hockey
team knocked the University of
Alberta out of the playoffs. On the
weekend in Edmonton, the 'Birds
paid for it.
On Friday night Alberta hammered UBC 13-2 and then on Saturday doubled them 10-5. Terry
McDonald with three goals and Bill
Holowaty with two were the top
scorers for UBC.
Volleyball
The women's volleyball team had
a rough time down in Portland on
the weekend in the Portland State
Classic tournament.
On Friday night UBC lost to the
University of Washington 3-0 and
on Saturday dropped to the University of the Pacific by the same
score. UBC's only victory was an
exhibition win over Portland State
who won the tournament.
Basketball
The men's basketball teams dropped to the Meralomas 65-60 Friday
night in War Memorial gym. UBC's
next games are this Friday and
Saturday night when the 'Birdmen
tangle   with   Simon   Fraser.
One basketball team won though.
The women's junior team defeated
Cap College 57-55 Saturday when
Gayle Hughes hit a twenty footer
with one second remaining. Hughes
was the high scorer in the game with
16 points.
sprains heal quicker than others;
we're hoping that in Glen Steele's
case it's the former," said Smith.
The 'Birds defensive line was impressive in holding Calgary to just
73 yards rushing and forcing a
number of fumbles, one a turnover
recovered by linebacker Wendell
Cornwall.
The defensive secondary picked
off three Calgary passes in a game
full of stray balls. Cornerback
Brian Branting and Dave Singh had
one interception each while
halfback Bruce Barnett had the
third.
Singh's interception late in the
game set up UBC's third
touchdown, a three yard run by
fullback Peter Leclaire which put
the game out of reach.
Munro converted this one and
added the remaining points on one
successful and two missed field
goals.
Receivers were generally having a
hard time in the rain as neither
team's quarterback fared well. Jay
Gard completed four out of 17 pass
attempts while his Calgary counterpart Greg Vavra was seven for 24.
The Thunderbirds now have a
two week layoff before meeting the
University of Alberta in the
Western Intercollegiate Football
League final November 13 at
Thunderbird stadium.
The winner will meet the Ontario
West champion for the right to go
to the Canadian College Bowl.
The 'Birds have beaten the Bears

OUR STRENGTH IS PEOPLE.
Dofasco recruiters will be
interviewing U.B.C. students
on December 3 and 4.
Check with the UBC. Placement Office at 228-4011.
There are many reasons why
you should consider Dofasco
as a solid career choice.
To begin with, we are one
of Canada's leading steel
producers. And we're Canadian owned and operated.
In addition, we are a
progressive, growth-oriented
company. Our investment in
related resource companies
and subsidiary plants
throughout Canada, and our
program of planned expansion, have enabled us to keep
pace with Canadian demand.
In fact, our projected steel-
making capacity is expected to
increase by over 30% by 1995.
Dofasco's employees share
in the profits they create.
"Our strength is people" is a
basic truth at Dofasco. A
truth that is clearly
evidenced by the fact that
our work force is one of the
most consistently productive
in North America. This
exceptional productivity is
good for Canada, good for
Dofasco, and good for
Dofasco employees, who
share in the company's profitability through our profit
sharing plan.
Dofasco Graduate
Training Program helps you
make the right choice.
Our flexible Graduate
Training Program allows you
to sample a range of careers
before a final decision is
made. You'll gain a wealth of
practical experience by
working at challenging
career-related assignments.
You'll get to know the
personality of the company,
obtain an accurate overview
of our entire operation, learn
about different departments
through plant tours and
seminars, and meet key
Dofasco people, who are
leaders in their specialized
fields.
And, best of all, you will
share in the decision of
where you want to continue
your career.
Our product is steel. Our strength is people. Page 8
THE    UBYSSEY
Tuesday, November 3,1981
We're holdng forgraduates
who want a chance todevelop
their resources.
And
ours.
Syncrude Canada Ltd. is one of the world's largest and
most advanced synthetic fuel producers. And we've barely
scratched the suface at current production of 129,000
barrels per day.
Offer us your energy for ours, and we'll offer you
participatory management. Which means if you've got
something to say, you'll get the chance to say it.
Just like our more experienced voices. It's a good chance to
get farther, faster.
We also encourage continuing education, with more
than 400 courses of professional interest. In addition to all
the courses you can take just for fun.
And when it's time to relax, you'll find McMurrray is a
dynamic city, with all sorts of pursuits to interest you.
First run theatres, first class fishing, a fine recreation centre,
and a lot of nice people to sport with.
There's something else to keep in mind. The chance to
really stretch your mind. We're constantly tackling new
things. And you could be the one to make technological
history. Things you develop today, could be used by
industry professionals for all time.
If all this appeals to you, make an appointment to see
us while we're on campus.
