Montreal gays protest police raid
MONTREAL (CUP) — A raid by
Montreal city police oh a downtown
jiy bar has provoked organized
reaction from the city's gay
community and harsh criticism
from senior officials within the
police department.
More than 159 people were held
overnight following the raid by
police officers wearing bullet-proof
vests and carrying machine guns.
About 1,000 people crowded the
streets of downtown Montreal
Saturday in support of a protest
staged by the Association pour les
Droits des Gaies du Quebec
(ADGO) against the raid.
Two people were arrested for
assaulting a police officer and two
others were arrested for breaking
windows.
A top official of the police
department's vice and drug squad
condemned the actions of the
department's divisional morality
squad which carried out the raid,
saying that it was ridiculous to
arrest 150 people as "found-ins" in
a licensed bar.
He added that the officer who
authorized the raid will be in
trouble if the charges don't stick.
A spokesperson for the morality
squad defended the raid.
"If we didn't have proof to arrest
all those people we wouldn't have
arrested them. We have been going
there and every time we go we see
gross indecency.
"I have nothing against
homosexuals. I have nothing
against them sleeping in private
but when you get gross indecency
in public, that's another story,"
Another officer of the vice and
drug squad agreed the morality
squad was out of line.
"One of these days they might
disband the bloody thing but right
now we just have to put up with
them."
Ron Dayman, a spokesperson for
the ADGO, said the raid was a
publicity campaign to sway the
public opinion against gays.
He said the police plan to raid a
number of other clubs in the near
future is part of an ongbing
campaign. He added the police
have been using blackmail and
intimidation to get people to testify
against gays.
Another member of the ADGO~
said the demonstration was only
the beginning.
"It's the first time gays in
Montreal have stood up to the cops
en masse. If there were 1,000
people this time, next time there
will be 5,000. The police are going
to learn not to push us around."

provide all post-secondary student
aid funds, in the form of nonrepayable grants, delegates to a
National Union of Students conference decided on the weekend.
"NUS is calling on the federal
government for a totally all grant
student aid system," Paul Sandhu,
Alma Mater Society external affairs officer, said Monday.
NUS will be launching a six-
month campaign concentrating on
improving student aid to post-
secondary students and getting the
federal and provincial governments to take measures to reduce
student unemployment, Sandhu
said.
But NUS will not be concentrating much effort on UBC's
main concern, education cutbacks,
he said.
"As far as we're (UBC) concerned the biggest issue is cutbacks, but NUS decided to let that
be handled regionally," said
Sandhu.
Sandhu, one of six UBC delegates
to the Calgary conference, said
NUS plans on a campaign combining lobbying the governments
and gaining greater student
awareness of the problems on
Canadian campuses.
UBC is not a member of NUS.
UBC students voted 59 per cent in
favor of joining NUS in a
referendum last winter, but the
vote needed a two-thirds majority
to pass.
UBC delegates were at the
conference as prospective
members. An AMS committee has
recommended that another NUS
referendum be held at UBC this

Anti-Trident groups to join in
massive base demonstration
Canadian University Press
A coalition of groups opposing
construction of the Trident nuclear
submarine base in Bangor, Wash,
has begun preparations for a
massive, unprecedented shutdown,
and occupation of the base next
spring.
The occupation is expected to
involve more than 2,000 demonstrators and will take place May

22, to coincide with a special
session of the United Nations on
disarmament, according,to Jim
Douglass, a spokesperson* for the

The PLC played a major role in

summer that led to the arrest of
about 60 protestors.
Much of the planning for next
spring's action will take place at a
Canada aids third world oppression
Canada is helping to continue the oppression of third world people, an international church leader said Monday.
The Canadian government has insured the
interests of Noranda Mines in Chile, a
multinational corporation that is shoring up
the Chilean junta's oppression of the people of
Chile, said Phillip Potter, general secretary
of the world council of churches.
"The council of churches has to enlighten a
world blinded by economic values," he said.
Potter also called on Canadian banks to
withdraw their support of the white racist
government of South Africa. Currently the
Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce, the
Bank of Montreal, the Royal Bank, and the
Toronto Dominion Bank all lend money to
South Africa.
Investors in any country can weaken the
structure of oppressive governments by withdrawing their investments, he said.
The Western press is obsessed with South
Africa because the West has a guilty conscience about oppressing the third world, he
said.
"When the fascist machinery of Hitler
became a threat to the freedom of other
countries, the Western world justified the war
as a fight for liberty and justice.
"When human dignity of the Africans could
go no further and the point came for a just
rebellion among the oppressed people the
West said, 'No, no. Be patient.'
"It is the same enemy."
Potter said criticisms that the world council
of churches gives money to liberation groups
to buy arms are unfair.
The council gives money to groups who
have the recognition of their people and the
money is given with the understanding that it
will be used for hunanitarian purposes such
as food, education and medical supplies, he
said.
The council establishes solidarity with
those who suffer and give sums without
requiring accountability. This is an act of
trust, Potter said.
The church can no longer be described as
passively accepting or being in alliance with
world powers. Churches are trying to free
themselves from the economic system under
which they own vast areas of land and church
heads live in mansions, he said.

The training centre will be self-

significant step in the PLC's
campaign to maintain a sustained
presence at the base, Douglass
said.
Dougass, who is awaiting trial on
a charge of civil disobedience that
arose from a demonstration at the
Trident base this summer, expects
the May 22 demonstration to be the
largest in the history of anti-
Trident demonstrations.
Ten huge submarines, each four
stories high and 550 feet long, will
operate from the base 100 miles
south of Vancouver.
Each submarine will carry 408
separate nuclear warheads,
making them the most destructive
weapons ever devised by man.
They are designed for first-strike
assaults.
The Pacific Life Company is a
group dedicated to halting the
spread of nuclear weapons through
non-violent protest.
Last summer 28 people were
arrested on federal tresspass
charges during a demonstration
led by the Pacific Life Community.
Demonstrators had climbed a
fence into a thickly-wooded area of
thebase while others landed in four
small boats at a beach within the
base perimeter.

Abolish prisons, reformer says
By MIKE BOCKING
The current prison system
should be abolished, a prison
•eform activist said Monday.
Claire Culhane said prisoners
should be put into community
urograms for rehabilitation.
Culhane told a meeting of 20
people sponsored by the Women's
Committee that 80 per cent of inflates are non-violent and should
ye in the community instead of
}rison.
Instead "we have 24 prisons on
he board to be built in Canada.
?risons are a secondary industry
n this country," she said.
Programs should be implemented in which offenders stay
n the community and pay back
heir victims, said Culhane.
Non-violent prisoners such as
prostitutes and shoplifters should
be put on this kind of program
instead of sending them to prison,
she said.
Culhane, 59, has been active in
the prisoners' rights movement,
and believes civil disobedience is
sometimes necessary where legal
protest fails.
"When you have exhausted all
legal methods such as petitions and
demonstrations you have to resort
to other methods," she said.
When three women prisoners
committed suicide within a one-
month period, Culhane underwent
a 10-day fast in front of Oakall
prison in Burnaby.
She has also been arrested after
chaining herself to the legislative
public gallery in Victoria and
throwing leaflets on MLAs.
"Age is working in my favor,"
she said. "Police can't be too rough
with a grey-haired grandmother."
Criminal activities should be
kept ^perspective, she said. "The
society we are in is very violent
and insecure."
Crime is inevitable in a society
where a neutron bomb can exist,
she said.
"Solitary confinement is cruel
and inhuman punishment," she
said. Solitary confinement has
been ruled in court as cruel and
unusual punishment, "but when
lawyers asked for an injunction to
stop that they were refused," said
Culhane.
Prisoners who slash their wrists
in solitary confinement are not
trying to commit suicide, she said,
but "are so affected by sensory
deprivation they inflict physical
pain to relieve mental anguish."
"People accuse me of caring
more about prisoners than the
victims," said Culhane.
But everyone is brutalized by the
prison system, she said. "People
are brutalized themselves when
they hurt other people like
prisoners."
"What kind of person are you to
enjoy that?"
Culhane said violent criminals
should be given every type of
medical, physical and
psychological treatment available.
Without capital punishment that
person is eventually going to reenter society. For the sake of
future victims we should be sure
he   is   cured,   she   said.
"But rednecks say beat him,
abuse him."
Culhane said, "I'm accused of
beinga cheap publicity-seeker. But

UBC site of new audio-visual library
By TOM HAWTHORN
Since September, UBC has
loused a unique audio-visual
.dewing library with 220
presentations on human settlements from 125 countries
available in six languages.
Hie problem is that no one is
iware of its existence.
"UBC is fortunate enough to
lave such a valuable educational
resource as this audio-visual
library, and yet no one really
mows that we're here," says
Charlie Keast, audio-visual
department head.
The library, located in the
aasement of the Woodward Instructional Resources Centre, is
run by UBC's Centre for Human
Settlements.
The audio-visual library will be
Financed by the federal government until April, I960, while the
provincial education department
win provide funds for equipment
and space.
The library was set up after
Vancouver was host city for the
United Nations habitat conference
in May and June of 1976, using
iduio-visual presentations from
the conference.
"Our greatest problem has been
in getting both students and faculty
members to use this facility. The
library has great potential and can
be a great asset for someone doing
a paper or research on certain
topics," Keast said.
A visit to the library is almost
like a trip to a galactic fantasy
world of media equipment.
The library contains six video-
cassette units housed in a centralized console, remote controls in
the viewing areas, a theatre with
a large-screen video projector, a
projection booth that can present
film screenings and slide shows,
and a flexible seating plan which
allows as many as 50 people to view
presentations.
"Most of the people who use the
library are from the geography
and urban studies fields of study,
but there is material here for every
discipline," said Keast.
"The available subject areas
cover conservation and preservation, human settlements, land,
water, planning and development,
and participation and cooperation."
The library is also planning to
acquire more audio-visual
programs related to human settlements.
"We are making available a
wide range of topical material to
the student body, and I would
really like to see these resources in
use," said Keast.
"When I first came to UBC I was
appalled by the lack of audio-visual
materials, but I expect that some
professors will soon be telling their
students to use the viewing library
much the same way they use the
Sedgewick or Main libraries.
"After all, we are the library of
the future."
The viewing library is located
deep in the confines of the Woodward Instructional Resources
Centre, room B80. The library is
open to everyone from 9 a.m. to 5
pjn. weekdays, and at other times
by special appointment.
Presentations are available in
English, French, Chinese,
Russian, Spanish and Arabic.
"You know, we even get some
people in here who watch the
programs just for the pleasure of
it. I guess that shows how valuable
this library really can be," said
Keast.
CULHANE ... "reform prisons"
I seek publicity to correct injustices I see."
She said there is currently a plan
to bring in male guards for women
prisoners at Oakalla. Because of
equal opportunity legislation the
prison system advertises for male
and female applicants for these
positions, she said.
But this overlooks provisions of
the Human Rights Bill which
makes exceptions on the grounds
of human decency.
Relocation
pressures
being fought
Canadian University Press
The Douglas College council has
decided to buck pressure from
government groups and postpone a
decision about whether to relocate
in downtown New Westminster.
In a prepared statement, the
council said the proposal to include
the college in a massive
redevelopment of New Westminster's downtown is unsatisfactory.
The B.C. Development Corporation warned the college last
month that if it did not relocate to
revitalize the decaying downtown
area, the whole Livable Region
Program of the Greater Vancouver
Regional District will have to be
abandoned.
The Livable Region Program is
designed to co-ordinate growth of
the urgan areas of the Lower
Mainland.
BCDC officials claim the
"student market population" is
needed in order for New Westminster to survive, and that
developers will pull out of the
redevelopment proposal if it is thwarted by the college. But college
council members last week affirmed that they will not be forced
into a decision by "pressure tactics" from New Westminster or
BCDC.
BCDC planned for a favorable
decision by the council by Oct. 15,
but the college is holding out on the
decision until substantial concessions have been negotiated. The
college has consistently maintained that it has not made up its
mind whether or not to relocate.
The college council has asked the
provincial government to conduct
a feasibility study on the proposal.
NUS 'too radical' for college
Canadian University Press   „
The Douglas College Student Society has refused to
co-operate with the National Union of Students
unemployment campaign because it "doesn't want to
appear to be too radical," according to student
president Dave Johnston.
The NUS campaign asks students to fill out cards
protesting high student unemployment and mailing
them to the prime minister's office.
The student society has not ordered any cards and
doesn't intend to. "We'll only send in cards if NUS
pressures us," Johnston said.
NUS has printed 92,000 of the cards and distributed     97,QO0
them on 43 campuses across Canada. NUS expects at
least 50,000 cards will be sent to the prime minister's
office — but none will be sent from Douglas College.
Two other institutions in Canada have refused to
participate in the mail-in campaign.
McMaster University refused because it does not
endorse "massive job creation programs." and St.
Boniface College in Manitoba refused because it does
not want to jeopardize negotiations for federal
grants.
NUS estimates that one out of every 10 students in
Canada was unemployed this summer, a total of Page 4

Tenure report sad, disturbing
Administration president Doug Kenny's report which
suggests reductions in the number of tenured faculty contains
many disturbing features.
It says the number of tenured profs would be cut through
attrition, but this also means that the number of new profs
given tenure must be reduced, in effect a tenure freeze. This
will make UBC unattractive for prospective faculty members
and may scare away the quality profs UBC is seeking.
Such a report, while still tentative, offers little comfort to
untenured profs currently on campus. The,report fails to
question the institution of tenure, which sometimes works
against students. A creative alternative to tenure could give
UBC needed flexibility and improve teaching and research
standards.
The proposals are based on the assumption that UBC will
operate on a steady-state basis, that is, no increase Jor
decrease) in student population and in government grants.
This is a sad conclusion. True, the baby boom as it affects
B.C. is over, but many students who should be on campus
cannot go to university because of economic reasons. If the
current economic restraints aggravated by Socred financial
policies were removed, the number of students could
continue to grow.
Another surrender to the Socreds — the concept of
steady-state government grants. While grants to universities
have grown in actual dollars since the Socreds took power,
inflation has eaten into this money and grants have actually
decreased in real terms.
It wouldn't be much of a surprise if the government took
advantage of any UBC penny-pinching and continued cutting
its annual grant.
Letters
Charles Spelay's review of the
Alternatives Canada conference at
the University of Toronto in
Thursday's paper touched on a
number of interesting points.
He said "the disparate nature of
the rank-and-file membership (of
the Parti Quebecois) encompasses
almost all political persuasions,
separatism being only one of
them." With, sijch > diverse
political background, it appears
that separatism may be the party's
only common goal.
If then, the PQ loses their
referendum on independence and
sovereignty-association (which is
likely), what will hold the party
together? Without a common goal,
the party could fragment leaving
the Quebec political scene without
a strong leader. Who would fill the
void?
Spelay also mentions a certain
western apathy to theproblem of
Time for
Rockies to
disappear
, Canadian unity.. With the attention
the issue has received in all the
mass media, conferences and the
pro-Canada organizations that
have been founded, surely
Canadians from coast to coast
have been stirred out of their
complacency and begun navel-
gazing, to use Spelay's phrase, on
their own place in Confederation.
I find it hard to believe that
anyone has remained apathetic to
the problem.
As prime minister Trudeau has
indicated, the PQ election  may
RCMP are to blame
I feel there should be an addition
to Geof Wheelwright's article on
Place Vanier printed in Friday's

Since it is a well-known fact that
Totem Park puts on the best

for that matter, the so-called
boycott of the Totem Park beernite, held on the same night as
Place Vanier's, was an abject
failure. Needless to say, Totem
Park's beernite was yet another
great success.
This was due not only to the brisk
business generated by Totem and
Gage residents but also from the
many hard-drinking Vanier
residents I had the pleasure of
selling our beer to.
The reason we did not hold our

invaluable resource.
But were the engineers participating? It seems that this

Racism charge damaging
As an East Indian student in the faculty of commerce, I fully share the
concern of dean Peter Lusztig that the charge of racism in the faculty of
commerce is damaging and unsubstantiated. A large number of East
Indian students in commerce are getting financial support as research
assistants, teaching assistants, markers, and holders of university
fellowships because of their high grades.
In a number of courses East Indian students have secured the highest
marks in their respective classes. They share equally all the facilities in
the faculty with other students without any discrimination. Those of us
who have taught courses as TAs have not experienced any discrimination
by Caucasian students (I hate to label students as Caucasians, East Indians or Orientals.)
Many East Indian students feel sorry for dean Peter Lusztig whose
feelings were hurt by the statements, because he was popular with
students even before he became dean.
Unsubstantiated charges not only damage the reputation of the
university and the faculty, but also create a poor image of the group or
individual who brings them forth in public.

Aggies aid school spirit
I was quite shocked to read the
letter headlined Bad boys in
Friday's Ubyssey. If these 'concerned students' had stood up and
looked instead of cowering under
their desks like a group of puffs,
they would have realized that the
little boys in red were very well
supervised by esteemed members
of the agriculture faculty.
We had been giving the boys in
red a lecture on campus spirit.
Having heard that there was a
science undergraduate society
general meeting, we decided to
show them the epitome of faculty
spirit.
We quietly led them into the
meeting, which consisted of about
75 students (all of which were
reading over their notes instead of
listening to what they were going to
vote on) and gave a demonstration
on one of the many things a spirited
faculty can do.
After the demonstration, we
insured that none of the little boys
in red were left behind and showed
them home:

Re the Doobie Brothers concert
review (Oct. 14,1977) by a certain
music critic who contributes to
your fine tabloid, I wish to take
issue with his obviously learned
opinion (witness the use of the hip
word 'riff).
His two-drummer theory has
absolutely no basis in Doobie
Brothers' reality. In fact any
trained musician would be quick to
point out that this system served,
through the high quality of the
percussionists, to create complex
polyrhythms. Which it is obvious
that, along with the rest of the
performance, this literary whiz
could not comprehend.
If the opening number, which
received instant recognition from
those attending, was "maimed
beyond recognition," how did our
learned critic know it was a work
by the title of China Grove.
Giving the reviewer the benefit
of the doubt, perhaps he did not
actually attend the concert, but in
fact scalped his ticket to his
younger mongoloid brother.
In future, I respectfully suggest
that your fine journal approach
articles of this calibre with a 'take
it or leave it' attitude. If submitted,
concert reviews do not reflect the
fine quality of our Ubyssey, take
the reviews and their creators out
to the streets and back to the
sewers from whence they came.
Better yet, refrain altogether
from music reviews, and pursue
your main policy of slandering
UBC.

SRAc'tee
Time to fight cutbacks
perspectives
A piece on protests against Socred education
f-utbacks by Lome Rogers, Fred Nelson and Grant
Elgaard of the UBC Young Socialists.
An extensive report on cutbacks prepared very
thoroughly by Moe Sihota is currently in circulation
within the student representative assembly.
This report is founded on calendar comparisons
and the financial situation in each department, and
effectively illustrates the extent of the attack on
education. The report shows that not only are there
fewer courses available this year but the quality of
these courses can be seen to drop as the student
teacher ratio shifts toward even larger classes.
These cutbacks were a direct result of the fact that
the Socreds would not give the university as much
money as it requested.
Advance information on next year's budget
suggests that there will be further cutbacks. While
there are no projected fee hikes for next year, that
doesn't mean the education cutbacks have stopped,
they are continuing.
On March 1st, 3,000 angry students attended a
rally to protest the fee hikes. In planning and
carrying out this rally students set the model for
how to fight the cutbacks. Students showed that they
are not only concerned about the education cutbacks but are willing to fight against them.
During the summer the SRA passed a motion
which gave birth to the cutbacks committee, which
is open to any student who wishes to participate.
This committee has done nothing to concretely
continue the momentum of last year's actions. What
seems to be the problem?
One problem has been a lack of funds. While the
proposed SRA budget set aside $4,000 to fight cutbacks, it has not been until recently that this budget
has been approved. Even now only $200 has been
released to the committee.
The cutbacks committee is small and the purse
strings are controlled by the SRA. Now we come to
the major problem facing the cutbacks, and this is
the attitude of the SRA members to the cutbacks
issue.
The majority of SRA members seem paralyzed
by a fear that could be most charitably described as
"what if we held a demonstration and nobody
came?'' This has resulted in an extremely apathetic
response to the cutbacks by the student reps who
are on the committee.
The cutbacks committee originally planned to
picket the last board of governors meeting but this
had to be called off when the person in charge of
getting the leaflets printed, a member of the SRA
and chair of the committee, didn't get the job done.
The members of the SRA who are on the committee didn't even bother to attend the last two
committee meetings. Without the signature of the
secretary/treasurer, the same SRA rep who is also
the chair of the committee, the committee can't
even spend the $200 already alloted to it.
Instead the committee was forced to spend the
last two meetings sitting around and talking about
all the things they would like to do.
Last year's rally makes it very clear that students
are willing to fight the cutbacks, but in order to do
that they need a leadership. The SRA is the elected
leadership of the students and it is their responsibility to lead this cutbacks fight, not slow it down.
No one member of the SRA ran on a program in
favor of the cutbacks. However, it is not enough to
talk a good fight, it is time for the members of the
SRA to come through on their election promises and
do something to fight the cutbacks.
The cutbacks committee should call and build an
action against cutbacks such as a picket of the next
board meeting. It should use that initial action to
draw more students into the cutbacks fight and go
on to build other demonstrations.
It is only through this process that a serious
defense of students' rights to an education can be
built. The excuse of student apathy is a lame one at
best because students have shown that they will
come out and demonstrate against the cutbacks if
given the opportunity.
It would be unrealistic to expect 3,000 people at a
board picket but if the action is backed and pushed
by the student leaders, it will draw people into the
fight. These resources can then be harnessed by the
committee to build even larger actions later in the
year.
It is time for the elected student leaders to either
start building a campaign or else set the record
straight and admit that they have no intention of
doing anything about cutbacks other than making
speeches.

DEMONSTRATIONS ... more needed to fight cutbacks
Gay rights impaired by political fighting
By CAM OSBORNE
A battle is shaping up this year across
North America over the issue of gay rights.
In Florida, Toronto, and here in Vancouver, both sides are gearing up for a long
and protracted struggle, with neither willing
to retreat from its position. Gays are
seeking legislation prohibiting
discrimination on the basis of sexual per-
ference.
Anti-gay forces want laws to curb
homosexual behavior and to keep gays from
occupying public position. Both sides are
wrong in that the real issue of the right to
discriminate is not being dealt with.
The controversy in Florida began when
the Miami metro commission passed an
ordinance banning discrimination in
housing, jobs, and public accommodations
on account of "sexual or affectational
preferences." This meant in effect that
discrimination against homosexuals would
be legal.
The religious community, especially
fundamentalists led by "born again"
Christian Anita Bryant quickly marshalled
its forces for action.
The gay community quickly took up the
challenge. They launched a campaign to
pressure the orange growers to stop using
Anita Bryant in their advertising.
Recently in Vancouver, the Gay Rights
Alliance lost a case in the B.C. Court of
Appeal in which they were trying to assert
Cam Osborne, a fourth year history
student, is president of UBC's Libertarian
Society.
their right to have an ad published in the
Vancouver Sun promoting their newspaper.
The Gay Tide.
These incidents seem to be only the
beginning of a vicious political struggle. Is
there any way of settling the differences? Is
there a right side and a wrong side?
It is unfortunate that the real issues have
not been clearly recognized and discussed.
Both sides are missing the point. While the
pernicious bigotry of the "save our
children" crusade is to be deplored, a case
can be made for the repealing of the Miami
ordinance and others like it.
Ironically, this case rests on the principle
of freedom of association, the principle
which justifies the rights of gays to engage
in any voluntary relationships they choose.
However, anti-discrimination laws undermine that principle by prohibiting
private discrimination.
Gays are correct in asserting that they,
like everyone else, should be allowed to live
their own lives the way their choose. This is
a basic libertarian principle and is why
libertarians support tolerance of all
peaceful activities and choices. All laws
banning consensual and voluntary sexual
activity should be repealed and police
harassment of gays should stop immediately.
But freedom to associate also implies the
freedom not to associate. Private individuals have the right to discriminate
against gays in their own lives, businesses,
and property, just as gays have the right to
discriminate against straights.
Everyone makes choices every day which
are discriminatory.
People discriminate in their choices of
friends and lovers, the products they buy,
the music they listen to, the books they read,
and so on. By choosing not to deal or
associate with certain individuals, a person
asserts a fundamental right.
It makes no difference what his reasons
for that choice are. To coercively prevent
those offended by homosexuality from
discriminating against people whose
lifestyles they do not share is unjust.
It is also unjust to coercively prevent gays
from establishing bars, baths, massage
parlors, and hotels. Gays also have the right
to discriminate by hiring or associating with
only those persons whom they find
preferable and whose sexual orientation is
to their liking. In point of fact gays do just
this all the time.
In the Vancouver Sun case, the court of
appeal made the right decision but for the
wrong reasons. No mention was made of the
attempt of enforced publication as being a
clear case of state abridgement of freedom
of the press and a violation of property
rights. Instead, in a cowardly act of passing
the buck, the court reversed the supreme
court decision on what amounts to a
technicality.
The real issue is human rights. Just as I
have no right to force The Gay Tide to print
a heterosexual ad against its better
judgement, the Gay Rights Alliance has no
right to force the Sun  to publish its ad.
We already have enough constraints on
freedom of the press without having one
more added to the list.
Philosophically, the gay community is
wrong. Consequently, its political tactics
are wrong. By trying to mobilize public
opinion on the wrong side of the issue, gays
may be sowing the seeds of their own undoing. Tolerance cannot be established by
coercion.
Certainly, one can sympathize with their
situation. There can be no excuse for the
egregious harassment and persecution
which gays have had to suffer at the hands
of church and state. Moral responsibility for
the emotional and physical harm done to
homosexuals lies at the feet of Bryant & Co.,
and other bigoted groups like it.
One could hope for the defeat of the anti-
gay forces on symbolic grounds since it is
they who are making the issue a symbolic
one.
But the real problem is the law, which is
more than symbolic. It represents coercion,
which detroys that very freedom of
association which gays, and indeed,
everyone, should hold fast to and treasure.
It is unfortunate that, by circumventing
the principle involved, the gay community is
giving its antagonists a powerful weapon.
They have chosen to make the sensitive,
personal issue of sexual preferences a
political one, and it is too much to hope that
theanti-gay forces will not use it in attempts
to drive homosexuals back into the closet.
Gay rights supporters would be well
advised to rethink their campaign. They
would be on firmer ground if they would
defend the principle of tolerance and respect
for individual rights. They should give up
trying to enforce acceptance at the point of a
gun and tell Anita Bryant and her neanderthal supporters to go back to the cave.

T-Birds shut Huskies out in cold
The UBC Thunderbirds football
team finished its league play with a
24-0 shutout of the University of

to finish with a 4-3-1 record.
After a poor start, the 'Birds won
four of their last five Western

Alberta for second place, has
beaten the Golden Bears 22-7 and

The Thunderbirds rugby side will be looking for its second win in three
first-division games this year when they host the Ex-Brits at 2:30 p.m.
Saturday at Thunderbird Stadium.
With a 2-1 record, the Ex-Brits are one of the teams UBC will have to
beat in its attempt to capture a second straight Tisdale Cup.
After dropping their first game this season to the UBC Old Boys the
'Birds have come back with five stright wins, four of which were in the
Abbotsford Invitational tourney, which resulted in the 'Birds' first trophy

came here four years ago I
inherited a joke."
In 1973, the year before Smith's
arrival, the 'Birds were 0-8 in
league play under coach Norm
Thomas.
UBC's defence was the bright
spot in Saturday's win, holding
Saskatchewan to 152 yards total
offense. The shutout is the second
of the season, the first being a 41-0
exhibition win over Eastern
Oregon State in September.
The Husky defence played
competently, but it was the lack of
offensive clout that accounted for
the lopsided victory.
The Bird defence forced four
Husky turnovers and accounted for
two UBC points on a safety touch.
Although the Husky defence was
tough, quarterback Dan Smith
piloted UBC to 401 yards in total
offense. Of three 'Bird touchdowns
only one came via the air route, but
Smith still completed 18 of 29 pass
attempts for 276 yards.
It wasn't until 2:28 of the second
quarter that Smith found Chris
Davies in the end zone, giving UBC
the lead. Davies proved to be
Smith's favorite target, hauling in
nine passes for 106 yards. Paul
Pearson managed to keep his
conference receiving lead intact
with two catches for 94 yards.
An interception by Chris
Thompson set up the game's
second major, which was capped
on a two-yard dive by Gord Penn at
12:28 of the second.
The defence accounted for the
only scoring of the third quarter
when it trapped Husky punter
Dave Osiowy in the end zone.
In the final quarter UBC scored
its last touchdown when Glen
Wallace pounded over from the
one.
Gary Metz converted all UBC
touchdowns and added a single on
a missed field goal.
Saskatchewan head coach Val
Schneider gave UBC credit for the
win but said his team lacks a
competent quarterback.
Coach Smith said he is proud of

In the other conference game
over the weekend, the University
of Calgary Dinosaurs defeated the
University of Manitoba Bisons 20-
12. The loss eliminated the Bisons
from the playoff race, and ensured
that Calgary will finish no lower
than second. Besides the Alberta-
Manitoba match-up, Saskatchewan hosts Calgary this weekend as
the regular season ends.
The 'Birds won't be idly waiting
at home to hear news from Winnipeg this weekend. UBC visits
Tacoma Saturday to take on the
University of Puget Sound, a team
which trampled the Simon Fraser
University Clansmen 44-12 Oct. 16.
Because UBC doesn't play the
well-funded Clansmen, the comparison with SFU will no doubt be
made, especially if UBC can stand
up to Puget Sound.
Making their last appearance for
UBC as the team wraps up its
season will be Greg Gardner,
Digby Leigh, Glen Wallace and
probably Gord Penn, Neil Quilter
and Shawn McGuiness on offense,
and defensive players Mike
MacKay-Dunn, John Turecki and
Tony Ricci.

THE       UBYSSEY

American press in CIA's pay
Liberation News Service
The press working for U.S. intelligence? For many, this is no
news.
Just one example is Luis Salz-
berg, who surfaced as an FBI
agent during the 1969 Chicago
Conspiracy trial of seven anti-war
activitists.
A familiar figure to many as his
camera snapped away at countless
demonstrations, Salzberg was also
an accredited photographer for the
New York daily El Tiempo.
"I personally feel that by any
means necessary communism
must be stopped," Salzberg
testified. "What surprises me is
that newspaper editors have not
called me up to congratulate me."
Salzberg can now take heart.
According to a recently published
article by investigative reporter
Carl Bernstein in Rolling Stone,
more than 400 journalists across
the U.S. have carried out CIA
assignments during the past 25
years.
"In many instances," the article
says, "CIA documents show
journalists were engaged to perform tasks for the CIA with the
consent of the managements of
America's leading news-gathering
organizations."
The most valuable of these
organizations to the CIA have neen
the New York Times, Columbia
Broadcasting System and Time
Inc., the documents state.
Covers
provided
But the article also lists the
owners and executives of the
Washington Post, the Louisville
Courier-Journal, American
Broadcasting Company, National
Broadcasting Company,
Associated Press, United Press
International, Reuters, Hearst
Newspapers, Scripps-Howard,
Newsweek, the Miami Herald as
well as of the old Saturday Evening
Post and New York Herald-
Tribune.
In short, most of America's most
influential papers, wire services
and radio and television networks
have co-operated with the CIA.
The services offered by the
media take two forms: Providing
jobs and credentials ("journalistic
cover" in agency parlance) to CIA
operatives about to be posted in
foreign capitals, and lending the
agency the undercover services of
reporters already on the staff,
including some of the best known
correspondents in the business.
"In the field, American journalists were used to help recruit
and handle foreigners as agents to
acquire and evaluate information,
and to plant false information with
officials of foreign governments.
"Rarely was a news agency used
to provide cover for CIA operatives
abroad without the knowledge and
consent of either its principal
owner, publisher or senior editor."

columnists C. L. Sulzberger of the
New York Times — "still regarded
as an active asset by the agency"
—and Joseph and the late Stewart
Alsop, whose syndicated columns
appeared in several national
newspapers.
Times
compliant
Joseph Alsop for example,
went to the Philippines in 1953,
allegedly to cover the elections.
But the CIA documents show that
he went at the agency's bidding.
The CIA thought his presence
there might affect the outcome of
an election.
Stewart Alsop's CIA ties were
also clear: "Stew Alsop was a CIA
agent," is how one official who
served at the highest levels in the
CIA described him.
"Other sources," Bernstein
writes, "said that Alsop was
particularly helpful to the agency
in discussions with officials of
foreign   governments   —   asking

questions to which the CIA was
seeking answers, planting
misinformation advantageous to
American policy, assessing opportunities for CIA recruitment of
well-placed foreigners."
CIA officials cited the agency's
relationship with the New York
Times as the most valuable among
newspapers. (The Times maintained the most extensive foreign
news operation of any of the
American dailies.)
The paper's late publisher,
Arthur Hays Sulzberger, is
reported to have provided his
paper's cover to about 10 CIA
Agents from 1950 to 1966. They
posed as stringers or clerical
workers in Times' bureau abroad.
' 'Sulzberger was especially close
to Allen Dulles and later, to John
McCone, the CIA's director from
1962 to 1965. McCone regularly
wrote memoranda of his conversations, including those in
which Sulzberger agreed to allow
undercover CIA employees to use
Times credentials."
Both C. L. Sulzberger and Arthur
Ochs   Sulzberger,   the   present
publisher of the New York Times,
deny knowledge of CIA personnel
using either toe Times' cover or
the CIA Agents working directly
for the paper.
The CIA's key broadcasting ally
was CBS.
"CBS president William Paley
and Allen Dulles were extremely
close," writes Bernstein. "Over
the years, the network provided
cover for CIA employees, including
at least one well-known foreign
correspondent and several
stringers; it supplied outtakes of
newsfilm to the CIA. . ."
Senate
stalls
Malcolm Muir, Newsweek editor
from 1937 until 1961, when it was
sold to the Washington Post Co.,
also kept in close touch with then-
CIA Director Dulles: "Whenever I
heard something that I thought
might be of interest to Allen Dulles,
I'd call him up. . ."
And also during the cold war,
Time       Magazine's       foreign
' correspondents attended regular
CIA "briefings."
Although much of the report
focuses on CIA connections with
the press during the 1950s and
1960s, its implications for the
present are clear.
In its recent investigation of the
CIA, the U.S. Senate Intelligence
Committee balked at pursuing an
inquiry into the CIA's relationship
with the press as detailed in the
agency's files:
"... Former directors Colby and
Bush and CIA special counsel
Mitchell Rogovin were able to
convince key members of the
committee that full inquiry or even
limited public disclosure of the
dimensions of the activities would
do irreparable damage to the
nation's intelligence-gathering
apparatus. . ."
