"special ad issue"
Telereg serves majority, but not all
By Deanne Fisher
Although 822 students had
their registration cancelled this
week for non-payment, telereg has
no major faults according to associate registrar Alan McMillan.
"There have been problems
for those students who haven't
paidby the (August 31) deadline or
didn't get their deferal in on time,"
said McMillan.
"The system worked for
25,000 students. There's eight
hundred it didn't work for," he
said.
But Alma Mater Society
president Tim Bird will be approaching the registrar's office
with a list of student complaints
about the system.
"I've had a number of problems mentioned to me. They all
seem to centre around the rules
that have been imposed with the
new telereg system itself," said
Bird.
"If a student elects to mail
their payment in and for some
reason or other it doesn't get there
by the specified deadline the person is automatically withdrawn
from all their courses," he said.
McMillan said the onus
should be on students to check the
deadlines. "People who got caught
and didn't pay, got cancelled," he
said.
But Bird doesn't think the
new deadlines were publicized
well enough. "I've had too many
students approach me complaining about the fact they didn't know
deadlines were changed," he said.
"Maybe they should have read
the material but maybe it
should've been advertised better,"
he added.
McMillan said that over half
(the students whose registration
was cancelled) didn't plan to actually attend anyway.
Bird disagrees: "If they regis-
UBC honors
Kain, Nemetz
By Olivia Zanger
An Honorary Degree of Doctor
of Letters was presented to Karen
Kain, Canada's prima ballerina,
at the second annual welcoming
Fall Ceremony held in the War
Memorial Gymnasium Thursday
afternoon.
UBC president David Strangway dubbed Kain a "Canadian
symbol of excellence."
"While feeding the mind, also
feed the intuition and soul," Kain
said in her acceptance speech.
She advised frosh and returning students alike of "the importance of holdingfast to dreams and
inspiration" and staying centered
both emotionally and spiritually.
Nathaniel Nemetz was
awarded the Chancellor's Medal,
inscribed with "Leadership, Loyalty, Service." Nemetz, the first
recipient of this newly established
award, said the university and
education are important in leading the world towards "a gentler
and more humane society."
Alma Mater Society President Tim Bird said in his address,
"It's easy to feel small, insignificant and unimportant,...say, in
the middle of exams... and we may
ask ourselves if this golden opportunity is a blessing or a curse. But
hang in there, whatever you
do...there are more than enough
good times."
Bird said a university education is incomplete without a social
education and urged students to
become involved in campus events
and organizations.
Strangway welcomed both
new students and old to another
year of adventure, hard work and
commitment and said the university experience offers a chance to
explore ideas, take part in debates, and deal with ethical questions.
The president said, through
involvement with student activities, one is handed the "opportunity to give something back to the
community".
For whom the
bell polls
UBC students can now cast then* votes on campus in the upcoming federal election said AMS president Tim Bird. Ten
polling »tationsin SUB will be set up, and pending approval, five
more in Gage Residence,
Previously, students have had to cast th eir votes at distant
churches and schools*
*It was relatively easy (to arrange for the stations) because
we realised we were entitled to this. And I wouldn't have
thought aboutit, except that I met the assistant chief returning
office, in Ottawa at a conference,* said Bird.
But only students whoare registered in Quadra wifl be able
to take advantage ofthe new stations. Students wholive on campus may register for Quadra providing they cancel their home
registration,
"I think whafs exciting about it is knowing that the concerns of a campus will become an integral part of this election in
the Quadra riding," Bird said.
tered, I think that means they're
pretty serious about coming."
Students receiving financial
aid could apply for a fee deferment
in August and were notified if
their deferment was declined.
But "we notified (a small
group of them) much later than I
would have liked to," said Byron
Hender, director of awards and
financial aid.
Hender said that when the
student's situation was the result
of a mistake made by the awards
office, they tried to rectify the
problem.
"Most students were really
well served by (telereg)," Hender
claimed, adding that he will have
some input on any changes to be
made next year.
While the registrar's office
will be conducting a survey on telereg in October, Bird is currently
researching problems and asking
for input.

CITR reaches out to dispell myth
UBC's campus radio station
has fallen victim to what it considers a horrible conspiracy that discourages students from tuning in
to its often controversial content.
In a move to help people who
claim they cannot receive the student run station, CITR has started
a huge publicity campaign aimed
at teaching potential listeners
how to tune in to 101.9 fm.
The   complaints   are   un
founded, said station manager
Harry Hertscheg. "We have no
idea how many hundreds or even
thousands of potential listeners
have been brainwashed by these
lies," he said.
Hertscheg and CITR staff are
giving prizes to the person who
lives furthest from CITR's studio
and has the best reception, and to
the person who lives the closest to
the studio but cannot pick up the
station at all.
"We are trying to dispel the
myth that many people cannot get
CITR in their homes," he said.
According to Hertscheg, anyone who really wants to pick up
CITR need only "put a little effort
into it."
Some tips include attaching a
clothes hanger to the antenna,
buying a cable splitter or using a
television cable.

Everybody's sick
of ordering pizza
claims Shriekback
By Bradley Dickson
Anew Shriekback album has
always been cause for celebration, and their latest offering,
Go Bang!, is no exception. Despite
the departure of their superb bass
player Dave Allen (formerly of
Gang of Four; currently who knows
where), the overall sound of the
band has suffered very little.
_\LBUM
Go Bang!
Shriekback
Island Records
Barry Andrews, Shriekback's
bald-headed, grinning cherub of a
leader, is at the top of his devilish
form from the first track, a reeling
ode to Dionysus called (appropriately enough) Intoxication. With its
spiralling horns/keyboards blended
with a strong rhythm, the song sets
the tone for the rest ofthe album:
loud, swirling, even downright demonic. This is music to strike fear
into the hearts of God-fearing
Christians everywhere.
But this is not to imply that
Shriekback is some sort of Satanic
heavy-metal act—far from it. Their
lyrics are more evocative of the
ideas and imagery of Joseph
Conrad and T.S. Eliot than the
tacky trappings of pop metal bands.
This is best exemplified by 1985's
Oil and Gold, probably their finest
album.
Since those days, when original
members Dave Allen and Carl
Marsh were still around, the band
has condensed into a nucleus made
up of Andrews, drummer Martyn
Barker, and the Partridge sisters
on backup vocals. Accordingly, the
band's direction has also changed,
resulting in last year's moody Big
Night Music, and now their
current, more dance-oriented
release.
More so than in past efforts, Go
Bang! is infected with humor. This
is evident in the first single, Get
Down Tonight, the old KC. and the
Sunshine Band hit, which I suspect
has resided fondly (and perhaps
guiltily) in more than a few people's
memories of their sequined and
bell-bottomed younger years. Well,
be ashamed no more! In case you
haven't noticed, disco is back again
(it never really went away). Barry

Barry Andrews seems to be suggesting that the
world is not going out with a bang or a whimper,
but in fact with a whimpering bang.
Andrews sings with tongue in
cheek, and even adds an ultra-hip
rap break for the middle eight:
"Shriekback crash-landing on a
K.C. song!"
Another highlight is Sharkwalk,
which carries on the band's obsession with all things scaly and slimy,
a theme which pervaded Oil and
Gold.
Big Fun and the title track are
terrific dance tunes about the
apathy and excess of western society today: "Everybody sick of ordering pizza." Andrews' slightly
skewed sense of humor is most
evident here, as he seems to be
suggesting that the world is not
going out with a bang or a whimper, but in fact with a whimpering
bang.
The only down note is the last
track, Dust and a Shadow—not
only a down note in terms of tempo,
but also quality. This is nothing
more than a shamelessly plagiarized pastiche of their moody old
songs, specifically This Big Hush.
All the same, Shriekback at
their worst is preferable to most
bands at their best, and Dust and
Shadow is only a minor flaw in
what is otherwise a terrifically entertaining record. Now if they
would only come back again and
play live...
Ihe quality and calibre ofthe
staff is tremendous. They are
personable, approachable and more
than willing to help—a great
atmosphere to work in—a firm to
be proud of."

THE UBYSSEY/5 _s__s_S®____l
Ubyssey autonomy
no plaything
In an ill-timed move to learn more about The
Ubyssey's relationship with Canadian University Press CUP—a national co-operative of student newspapers—student council threatened
the paper's editorial autonomy.
Council members discussed terminating
The Ubyssey's fifty-year old history with CUP by
deleting the $8,200 line item in the paper's
budget.
The debate was needed but it should not
have occurred in council chambers. Council
members discussed the attributes and detriments of The Ubyssey's membership in CUP.
The debate was supposed to be about the budget,
not about The Ubyssey's editorial decisions.
Some council members were concerned that
UBC students' articles are not printed, in favour
of CUP news copy. This is not the case. News
stories are almost never held—except when a
recent development has outdated the story, or
the story needs extensive editing which cannot
meet the time limitations of the production
process.
Many council members thought that UBC
students were not interested in news from the
CUP news exchange, which draws on over 40
Canadian colleges and newspapers in search of
stories which have national angles. Students,
these members insisted, were not interested in
national issues.
Most council members took part in the debate. The debate should never have occurred.
What The Ubyssey prints in its' pages is The
Ubyssey's business. It's called freedom of the
press. If council members were confused about
the benefits The Ubyssey and all students derive
from their $8200 investment, they need only
have asked us.
The Ubyssey realizes $8200 is a hefty sum,
but we feel communication between student
journalists is vital for a strong student press,
and we feel Canada-wide coverage is important
to our readers.
We at The Ubyssey know this campus is
interested in national and international student
news. We are here to expand our horizons, not to
set limits on them. And you, our readers, are
here for the same reason.

And worst of all there was that non-issue that just had to
be. And so it was, after a fashion, show. Chris Wiesinger
and Mandel Ngan rented a half-ton to meet the expected
Aspirin demand. Martin Dawes found that the fetal position didn't actually rule out rolling as a viable locomotive
function. Deanne Fisher didn't catch anything that day,
although she sat by the stream with her 101 dalmations
and her hooked wand.
A wind broke water, catching Katherine Monk with a
freak bridal shower, complete with Ted and Alex and the
collection plates. Olivia Zanger suddenly decided to go the
whole hog and proceeded to hog the hole.
Bob Harris went into regular contractions and
checked himself in to Wonderland. Steve Chan, saw
through everything!, said Bradley Dick-son, that sun-
ofagun. Sometimes, a chainsaw massacre is the lesser of
more than one evil, thought Steve, swinging his machine
wildly.
Corinne Bjorge and Laura Busheikin made some
sweeping statements and cleared up the mess. (10 pints

On correctly articulated speech,
sophisticated carriage, horsemanship and proper lifestyles
Reprinted from The Ubyssey,
Nov. 13th, 1968
I am profoundly disappointed at
what university has come to be. Being
a young man ofthe most correct breeding, I expected to find in university
many ofthe highest pursuits befitting
my station. Here I feel the faculty has
indeed slighted me and my own kind.
University was devised and developed
for gentlemen to pass their leisure
time in pursuit of the finer points in
life, and more importantly functioned
as it still should, as a training ground
for the chosen few most suited to be
the leaders ofthe community.
I find it inexcusable that the current university policy allows for those
ofthe masses, the uncultured and the
illbred, to attend university—none of
this nonsense about the increasing
demands made upon it by the industrial world. How do you expect to be
properly financed by business and
industry when the university ceases
to play its most important role, that of
a tool of development for young gentlemen to help prepare them socially
for the responsibilities of leadership
that must await any young man ofthe
upper crust. Does anyone expect the
aristocracy to perpetuate itself;
surely not.
What is all this talk of rights,
freedoms for the masses—communism, that's all it is. Why can't they
accept their stations in life as we all
must? I did not come to university to
learn of poverty, but social grace; I
care not of death and misery, only of
Nude campus would be a virtual
Eden, says stressed-out Geer
Reprinted from Nov.8th, '68.
Having spent five years at this
university, I think that many of my
sexual frustrations and hangups
could have been removed by a simple
reversion to the natural state.
What I mean by this is that the
female body is being exploited and
transformed into a pseudo-resemblance of its former self. When I en
counter a girl dressed in a chic miniskirt I experience a stimulus which is
not directed towards the actual reproductive function, but occurs as a result ofthe external and paper-mache
trappings which hide the true beauty
of the female body.
In order to adopt a healthier attitude towards sex, I propose that everyone fling off their inhibitions by
life  and the  pursuit  of happiness,
which is the right of any gentleman.
I suggest that the faculty get to
work and restore this institution to
one of high ideals. We must reinforce
ourselves in studies of the classics,
physics, metaphysics, in studying
God's Word, correctly articulated
speech, sophisticated carriage, horsemanship and proper lifestyles. We
cannot attempt to do that if we are continually confronted by the riff-raff who
attempt to make us believe that we
must concern ourselves with pollution, hunger, poverty, freedom or self-
determination, etc.
I suggest therefore we stop offering loans and simultaneously raise
the tuition fee to at least $2000 per
annum, lest we be overtaken by the
ingrates and the impure who would
have us dirty our hands.
For God's sake, gentlemen, let us
get on with our duty.

stepping out of their clothes.
Being in a secluded location, UBC
would be ideal for this particular experiment. Many new erections would
result from this change, including
check points coupled with locker facilities at the various entrances to the
endowment lands.
After the initial adjustments,
university would be a virtual Eden
devoid of all emotional and sexual
stresses. The whole of the student
body could then assume a more complete role in life.

AIDS policy set
By Bob Harris
A clause added to UBC's AIDS
policy could permit an ill-informed
administration to act unfairly
towards staff, students, or faculty
with the disease, says Dr. Rick
Mathias, chair of the campus-
based Ad Hoc Committee on AIDS.
Before the Board of Governors
would approve the policy, which
permits persons with AIDS to
continue working or studying as
long as they are capable, it required the administration to include a clause stating that AIDS
carriers are expected to conduct
themselves so they do not endanger the health of others.
"The administration must be
clear on what constitutes responsible behavior on the part of a
person with AIDS. The problem is
defining that behavior," said Dr.
Mathias.
He said the university gov
ernment must be aware ofthe latest medical information, adding
that the ad-hoc committee would
work with the administration
through information exchanges to
keep it aware.
Since future administrations
may not be as well- intentioned as
this one, vigilance will be required
to ensure the policy is always
applied fairly, Mathias said. "Students must be aware of this (aspect of the policy) to prevent it
from being misused," he added.
He pointed out that the current administration's handling of
AIDS-related issues has been excellent. As an example, he cited its
willingness to meet housing needs
for students with AIDS.
K.D. Srivastava, vice-president of student and academic services said the administration will
not tolerate prejudice: "the university must not discriminate against
anyone suffering with AIDS."

unnecessary job requirements
rather than just responding to
complaints, according to UBC law
professor William Black.
"You get cooperation (from
employers) when you show there's
a stick as well as a carrot," said
Black, who is writing a book on
human rights and employment
discrimination.
Black said employers often
list high school graduation as a
requirement for unskilled jobs
when they need a "cheap screen" to
reduce the pool of applicants. This
unnecessary criterion excludes a
high proportion of Natives, he
said.
And certain arbitrary restrictions on height and weight discriminate against women and
minority groups said Black, referring to a recent successful challenge to the RCMFs discriminatory height requirement.
Employers should "look for
criteria that doesn't have a bigger
impact on one group than another," he said. For a job as a
driver, employers should require
only the necessary qualifications^—a driver's license. Beyond
that, employers could narrow the
pool of applicants either by random selection of applications or by
selecting the first applications received, said Black.
Paul LeRoux, spokesperson
for the Canadian Human Rights
Commission, said it is "probably
true" that requirements for high
school graduation effect Native
people. He said the commission
would like to attack discrimination in the system more, but in
some cases it doesn't have the
authority or the staff to do so.
Leroux said the Commission
will be extending their authority
following an amendment to the
employment equity act which requires employers to file data on
employees.
Leroux said the Commission
has held back on initiating complaints in order to avoid the "Big
Brother" problem. "We must have
reason to believe (discrimination)
is occurring...(that) someone is
contravening the law."
Black said fears about the
"Big Brother" problem were unwarranted because other groups
such as the Workers Compensation Board and Labour Relations
currently have the power to initiate investigations, and still manage to retain the public's confidence.

Seeman spurts at CUP
Councillors debate Ubyssey status
in inter-university press organization
By Deanne Fisher
The Alma Mater Society
budget was passed Wednesday
with debate dealing only with The
Ubyssey and charitable donations.
Bob Seeman, a student Board
of Governors representative,
moved to reduce The Ubyssey's
$38,500 subsidy to zero on the
basis of a March 22, 1988 editor's
note which stated that The Ubyssey "aimed to break even next
year."
Seeman said because The
Ubyssey "had an inaccurate figure," the paper should print a retraction or council should take
away The Ubyssey's annual subsidy.
Council Briefs
Director of Finance Karl
Kottmeier defended the budget
and said, "the paper is more expensive to run than (the previous director of finance) thought it was.
We cut back wherever we could."
Seeman's amendment failed
for lack of a seconder.
* * *
Seeman then attempted an
amendment to The Ubyssey
budget that would eliminate the
line item devoted to The Ubyssey's
membership in Canadian University Press (CUP).
"Everything The Ubyssey gets
from that co-operative is radically
socialist," said Seeman, who referred to the organization as
"Communist University Press."
Seeman said he had heard of
UBC student's articles being
"bumped" in favour of CUP stories.
Robert Beynon, graduate students society president and former
Ubyssey editor said "news stories
are never held." Beynon mentioned several CUP news stories
that did not represent "radical
socialism" and said the stories are
"chosen for interest and are representative of Canada."
Kottmeier said that he knew
nothing of articles being dropped
but added, "I don't read the CUP
articles because I don't care about
them. But that's just me."
The amendment, seconded by
Engineering rep Dave Hill, failed
by a large majority when it was
called to question.
* * *
AMS External jAffairs coordinator Lisa Eckman failed in an
attempt to have $1500 from the
contingency fund allocated formally to charitable donations.
Seeman countered her
amendment with a motion that
stated "that the general policy of
Everything The Ubyssey gets from (CUP)
is radically socialist." - Bob Seeman
the AMS is not to provide donations to outside charitable organizations."
Seeman tabled his own motion, which was seconded by Arts
rep Andrew Hicks. The issue will
be discussed at the next council
meeting.
***
Council  loaned  the  science
undergraduate society a total of
$17000 to cover a $10000 debt and
the purchase of computer equipment.
The debt was incurred not
"because of irresponsibility" according to science rep Todd Ablett.
The computer equipment will
upgrade the quality of the SUS's
newsletter. They will pay back the
$17000 within two years.
* * *
Complaints from students
regarding the new telereg system
led to a motion to have AMS president Tim Bird outline student
concerns in a letter to the registrar.
"About 850 people got
bumped this week because fees
weren't paid," said external affairs
coordinator Lisa Eckman.
