Array Crusade nets big cash from UBC campus
By ARNOLD HEDSTROM
The totals are in for the 1980-81 campus
crusade for cash.
The Alma Mater Society is developing a
legacy of annual budget cuts for subsidiary
organizations and price increases in student
facilities like the games area.

The most ircelw AMS audit shows, despite
increased expenditures and an operating loss

the spring of 1980. Without assessing the
necessity of expenditures it appears the 1981
surplus is $33,355.
The statements show Clarke underestimated the amount of funds available for
general operation by more than $180,000. Investment income and revenue from SUB
lessees together exceed his estimate by
$126,759.
On the expenditure side, student government exceeded its budget by about $20,000;
reduced ad sales pushed The Ubyssey over
budget another $20,000 and $175,690 flowed
into reserve funds.
The bottom line is because of incompetent
management and inaccurate budgeting procedures many student organizations had programs cut or curtailed unnecessarily.
It was Clarke's second year as finance
director, and it was the second year of huge
unplanned surpluses. In the 1979-80 fiscal
year Clarke added $200,000 to reserves.
The audited statements reflect more than
just the arbitrary outcome of the society's
revenue and expenditure. The statement is a
final mirror on the society's activities for the
year.
This year's statement shows a 33 per cent
CLARKE ... big surpluses
increase in student government expenditures.
It is ironic that cries of financial disaster
from fiscally-minded student council drowned out the pleas for funding from student services like the womens' centre.
Student government asked groups to
reduce spending while they spent as they
pleased.
The statements also show continuation of
a precedent started in 1980.
But for students who contributed to the increase in reserve funds, with program cuts
or through AMS fees, the funds are inaccessible. Consecutive executives built up reserves
of $602,586 for repairs and capital aquisi-
tion. Reserves are not set aside for political or
other activities.
The audit also reveals areas of inefficiency.
Two areas in 1980-81, the publications office
and the Pit, performed poorly.

Hard core porn angers Montreal residents
MONTREAL (CUP) — Forty-
second street, New York city's
notorious pornography row, is
coming to Montreal.
At a recently opened theatre
advertising itself as having the
hardest core pornography in town,
about 100 women and men protested demonstrated against what
they feel encourages violence
against women.
Shouting, "our bodies are not for
sale," the demonstrators marched
in front of the theatre and urged
passersby to boycott Cinema X
and the Cinema Outremont, a non-
pornographic reperatory theatre
managed by the Cinema X owners.
"Pornography is hate-filled. It
does more than simply portray
violence against women, it encourages it," said demonstration
organizer Grace Prince.
The protest attracted representatives from 10 Montreal organizations, including the movement
against violence, men against
violence against women and the
McGill women's union.
Since its Feb. 10 opening,
Cinema X has screened mainly
mainstream,   or   soft-core   por
nography but the owners have promised X-rated films featuring
violence and child pornography.
(X-rated theatres are those
specializing in uncut hardcore pornography and exceptionally violent
films. Hardcore films display scenes
of bestiality, child porn, actual
forms of copulation and sex with
minors.)
The Cinema X owners ran an intensive publicity campaign with a
slick brochure saying "We're
X-rated, baby."
Prince said the demonstrators
were boycotting the theatre because
"It is anti-women, anti-child, anti-
human. I do not believe in censorship but this infringes on other people's freedoms. Forty-second street
Chit chat, tit for tat
Political clubs at UBC obviously don't take heed of the biblical proverb:
"Don't hide your light under a bushel." Nor, for that matter, do they heed
the media proverb: "There's no such thing as bad publicity."
For some reason the UBC Socreds and Liberals don't like the media to
show up when they bring their political idols to campus.
Last month universities minister Pat McGeer had a private "chit chat"
with the young Socreds, and a Ubyssey reporter was thrown out of the
room. Unfortunately, word got out and McGeer accidentally met about 30
curious students when he left the meeting. It was the young Liberals who
informed campus media of McGeer's presence.
Ironically, the young Liberals Monday brought former fitness minister
Iona Campagnola to campus and, you guessed it, The Ubyssey was barred
from the meeting.
It's unknown what McGeer and Campagnolo thought of the media bans,
but the political clubs claimed their guests were speaking on matters that
would not interest UBC students.
is coming to Montreal."
Roland Smith, director of both
Cinema X and Cinema Outremont,
defended the pornography he
screens.
"I absolutely refuse to show on
my screens gratuitous violence,
physical or moral, as I've been accused of doing," he said. "You will
never see (at my theatres) scenes of
bestiality, torture or the use of
children and adolescents."
Linda Lee Tracey, the former
stripper who appeared in the National Film Board documentary on
pornography Not a Love Story,
joined the demonstrators.
Tracey said she was protesting
"Because pornography acts to objectify women. Pornography in
Montreal hasn't hit outrageous proportions yet. We have to nip it in
the bud."
But most of the demonstrators
said they did not support censorship. "It's not the answer," said
Tracey. She suggested the government tax the pornography industry
and use the money to finance alternative films that are erotic as opposed to pornographic.
Education funding problems,
municipal and provincial squabbles
and a demonstration by angry
mobile homeowners almost overshadowed the big day for the BCIT
student association's project.
And while the guests, including
premier Bill Bennett and Burnaby
mayor Bill Lewarne, praised the
project in consideration of the current economic slump, other issues
kept creeping into their speeches.
Bennett used the platform to
preach economic restraint and
hinted at higher tuition fees for all
B.C. post secondary students.
"It has often been said that there
is no free lunch in life," Bennett
said, "I am pleased to see that
BCIT students recognize that there
is a limit to the burden that taxpayers can bear."
He was particularly pleased with
the campus centre's financing with
student fees instead of government
funds. It was "planned and planned
well," he told a crowd of about
150.
Lewarne mentioned Burnaby's
dispute with the provincial government over Oakalla prison, which
the municipality wants to shut
down and the federal government
wants to turn into a maximum
security women's prison.
BCIT president Gordon Thom
hinted at talks over increased funding for the institute. And before
Bennett finished speaking, about 20
mobile home owners began protesting about a provincial government decision to let landlords pass
on mortgage increases to their
tenants.
The student association increased
student fees about $25 per year to
cover construction costs without
first holding a referendum for approval. The first of three phases will
contain squash and racquetball
courts and the second: new student
association offices.
Bennett dodged questions on
university funding, and said BCIT's
funding was simply "an economic
matter." He charged the federal
government with reducing funding

Pit, publications lose
From page 1
The Pit lost $17,647 according to
the audit. The previous year the Pit
contributed $52,254 to the
operating surplus. The loss occured
in spite of increases in beer prices at
the campus bar. The audit doesn't
make judgements on the performance of the AMS but it does indicate possible problems.
But the cause of the operating
deficit is known for the publications
office. In 1980, the AMS hired an
ad sales person who didn't sell ads.
The Ubyssey staff notified the AMS
in September that sales had dropped but nothing was done until
February. As a result, the society
subsidized the paper an additional
$20,000.
The statements will be approved
at the society's annual general
meeting Wednesday at noon in
room SUB 206, the council
chambers.
The student council executive
and AMS management will be
available at the meeting to answer
questions on the finances for
1980-81 and activities for the current student council.

Borans' plight
Heeding this desperate call for
truth, the entire Ubyssey staff today
caught the first plane to Mora
Flora, capitol of Bora Bora. As
self-proclaimed agents of social
change, the paper's staff decided to
challenge the news agencies' com-
spiracy to suppress the facts about
the Bora Boran situation. The staff
adopted the motto "Long live Mora
Flora, Bora Bora."
As a result of this noble and
heroic gesture, The Ubyssey staff
will not be around to put out this
week's remaining issues. "But we'll
be back in time to put out
Tuesday's issue, as usual," said
Ubyssey hack Jules Vernewright as
she sped out of the newsroom with
a typewriter under each arm.

Dead lakes
coming
n
By DOUG SCHMIDT
The awesome reality of acid rain
is that once a lake has been
destroyed, it will never return.
John Fraser, Conservative MP
(Vancouver South) addressed 40
students Monday on national environment issues between Canada
and the United States.
Fraser, fisheries minister in the
short-lived Clark government, said
Canadians need more action on the
acid rain problem.
But, Fraser added, other environmental issues which lead to increased tension should be addressed.
"Eighty per cent of Canadians
(in regions affected by acid rain)
want tougher action taken to control sulphur and other air pollutant
emissions by industries, whereas
only 15 to 25 per cent of the
American people in the region concerned are opposed to current emission levels," he said.
"A large part of Canada has been
exposed to this dreadful danger,
whereas only a bit of the U.S. is being affected," he said.
"Another difficulty is the fact
that Americans are generally not as
aware of the acid rain problem as
we are."
Americans have just begun to
realize the extent of the problem
said Fraser, adding that newly
found awareness can largely be
creditted to increased contacts between Canadian interest groups and
the American government and people.
"My thesis on the acid rain issue
is to find innovative ways to address
the U.S. public and legislature," he
said. "We need more meetings between U.S. and Canadian legislators
but most important of all we must
continue bi-lateral negotiations at
government and public levels."
"The Canadian Coalition
Against Acid Rain is currently doing an excellent job lobbying in
Washington, and I would also like
to commend the Canadian embassy
in Washington for its contributions
so far on working on the issue,"
Fraser said.
But he attacked the Reagan administration for dragging its feet on
the acid rain issue.
'' Reagan has began a steady pattern to slow down and even to terminate environmental groups
operating in the U.S., starting with
the Environmental Protection
Agency, even though many people
are opposed to this wholesale
dismantling," he said.
Fraser attacked Ontario Conservative premier William Davis for
destroying Canada's credibility in
acid rain negotiations.
Ontario Hydro recently submitted an application to the National
Energy Board to increase electricity
production from coal burning
plants.
Additional energy will be for
domestic use and exported to the
U.S. but the effect will be a
dramatic increase in sulphur emissions, he said.
Catholic college
denies gays space
TORONTO (CUP) — Gays at
the University of Toronto are angry
and frustrated at the administration's refusal to grant the gay and
lesbian awareness week committee space to screen an award winning film on homosexuality.
GLAWC approached St. Michael's College officials, a federated
college at the university, requesting
use of their auditorium to screen the
film Michael, A Gay Son.
But while St. Michael's principal
William Dunphy claimed in a letter
to gay club chair Craig Patterson
that he opposed all forms of discrimination against homosexuals,
he said religious and political considerations influenced his decision
to refuse GLAWC the space.
Dunphy said the college receives
generous support from its alumni
and he must be sensitive "to the
perceived sensibilities" of that
group.
Dunphy added the college is "the
proud inheritor of centuries-old
Christian intellectual traditions."
But according to Patterson,' 'you
can't justify discrimination by appealing to tradition." He added it is
unfortunate that the college can't
go beyond its traditional viewpoints.
"Christian intellectual tradition
involves serious consideration of
other viewpoints," said GLAWC
chair Peter Bartlett.
Bartlett said that Dunphy had totally misconstrued the logic of the
gay awareness week. He also
challenged Dunphy's statement in
the letter that the film would 'promote' a gay lifestyle.
"It's absurd to suggest that Michael, A Gay Son will 'recruit' people," said Barlett.
The film, a docu-drama about a
young man helping his parents to
come to terms with his homosexuality, has won a variety of international film awards.
Patterson said Dunphy's refusal
is unprecedented and his group has
never had problems booking space
at the university.
"This indicates an unwillingness
to recognize that 10 per cent of the
population is gay," he said, adding
it shows a desire to be dissociated
from gay issues. "Giving us a room
doesn't have to mean you're condoning us," he said.
Patricia Buckley, St. Michael's
College student union president,
said a homosexual group would
probably have trouble getting official recognition at the college. The
church currently recognizes one
group of gay Roman Catholics,
Dignity.

Korean sweat shops thrive
By MARK ATTISHA
Ever wonder why Korean clothes
are so cheap?
South Korean workers receive 38
cents an hour, are forced to work 12
hours a day, seven days a week,
are prohibited from forming trade
AGM wet but expensive
In an apparent attempt to mobilize students, the student council is
holding a beer garden after
Wednesday's annual general
meeting.
The outgoing executive is hoping
the lure of beer will persuade some
students to attend this year's AGM,
although they readily acknowledge
the virtual impossibility of reaching
quorum.
"We haven't gotten quorum for
several years, and I think it's fairly
safe to say we won't get it this
year," said James Hollis, outgoing
external affairs officer. "The last
time we got quorum was a few years
ago when council put on a dance,"
he added.
According to Terry Cox, incoming director of administration, beer
will be available for a dollar if council serves food, or 75 cents if it
doesn't.
"It will be cheap beer, but we
can't afford to give it away free,"
said Pat Chow, outgoing AMS vice
president, even though this year
the AMS had a budget overrun of
about $33,000.
"Unless we get quorum all we're
going to be able to do is approve the
auditors' report," she said.
Without quorum the AGM is restricted to consideration of the
auditors' report.
unions and, if their plant has more
than 60 workers, are spied upon by
government-installed supervisors, a
Canadian monitor of human rights
in Korea said Friday.
Working conditions in Korea are
a result of a labor-intensive
economy, Joanne Fisher told 50
people in International House.
Strict government regulations,
unemployment, underemployment
and competition for jobs have kept
wages low, she said. "Korean
workers are afraid to complain;
they know there is always someone
waiting in line to replace them."
South Korean working conditions are as bad as the wages she
said. Fisher described "double-
decking," a system employed by
textile plants where rooms are
divided at a height of about five feet
to double the size of the working
area. "You can't walk in these
places; you have to crouch to move
about."
Workers who refuse to work on
Sundays and holidays have their
bonuses cut, she said. Women earn
an average of $78 per month and
men $135, while the cost of living
for a single person in Seoul is about
$113. Strikes are banned, absence
from work is considered subversive,
and police attacks upon protesting
workers are common. A Korean
worker burned himself to death a
few years ago to protest the appalling working conditions, she said.
In the videotaped talk show The
Faces of Militarism, Inez Flem-
ington said conditions in Korea are
a result of Korean president Chun
Doo Hwan's "gospel of national
security and anti-communism."
She said that in order to reduce the
threat of North Korean invasion,
the Korean government created the
Foreign Investment Inducement
Policy in 1966 to bring in foreign
capital to bolster its army, now the
fifth largest in the world.
Chun has prevented union expansion from plant to plant and security police may attend any meeting,
she said. "The people are controlled by fear." Page 4

Abbott students occupy admin offices
MONTREAL (CUP) — What
started out as a student union anti-
cutbacks rally ended as an occupation of the administration offices by
more than 100 students at John Abbott College Feb. 10.
Chanting "No cutbacks, no cutbacks," the students marched from
the rally and crammed into the lobby outside the offices of the
college's director general and
academic dean.
"We want to know what the hell
the administration is doing about
the cutbacks," yelled one student.
Luc Henrico, John Abbott's
director general, was not in his office when the occupation began,
but later welcomed the protesters.
"I'm glad you came to visit me," he
said.
Henrico said he would discuss the
issues with the college students
when he found out how much
would have to be cut back. He said
the Quebec government was planning to cut $8.8 million in funding to
the province's 42 junior colleges
next year.
"I can make one commitment to
you. As soon as we know where the
cutbacks are going to be made we
will sit down and discuss it with
you," he said.
The students asked Henrico why
no one from the administration had
attended the anti-cutbacks rally. "I
wasn't aware of it," he replied.
One angry protester asked if
Henrico was going to join students
in their fight against cutbacks.
Henrico said he would, but he had
reservations. "I'm not willing to
parade with a placard in front of
the Hydro-Quebec building (the
Montreal offices of the Quebec
government)," he said.
Henrico said when cutbacks are
made, they would probably affect
personnel.
One student suggested another
anti-cutbacks rally should be held,
with an invitation to the administration to attend. After that suggestion, the students left the offices
peacefully.
At the rally earlier in the day stu
dent association vice president
academic Brad Kuntz criticized the
Quebec government perception of
budget cuts. "Poor Yves Berube
(president of the Quebec treasury
board) laments that budget cuts
have cost him his limousine," said
Kuntz.
Student association president
Michael Dunke, said the current
economic mess in Quebec and the
need for cutbacks were a result of
an inefficient taxation system and
incompetent financial management.
UVic considering differential fees
VICTORIA — Differential fees
for foreign students could be implemented this fall at the University
of Victoria, according to a university administrator there.
Although there has been no formal discussion on differential fees,
Alfred Fischer, university vice president academic said recently he
would not rule out the formation of
such a policy when the university
sets its 1982-83 fees in May.
Fischer said the university must
"see what resources we have"
before setting a new fee policy.
The level of these resources
depends on provincial grants to the
university, which will not be determined until the government's
budget is approved, likely in April.
Fischer added UVic and UBC
might be forced to implement differential fees to prevent foreign
students from transferring from
one university to another to avoid
the higher fees.

UBC volleyballers spike Calgary
By SCOTT McDONALD
Despite handing the nationally
top ranked team only its second loss
of the year, the UBC men's
volleyball team could only manage
a 3-2 record at this season's fourth
Canada West volleyball tournament.
The Thunderbirds took only 45
minutes to sweep the University of
Calgary 15-8, 15-2, 15-4. Calgary's
only other loss this year came Jan.

Skiing
After winning the men's and women's divisions of
the Northwest Collegiate Ski conference, the UBC ski
team is now resting for the regional championships to
be held February 21-23 at Snoqualmie Summit,
Washington.
The top two teams from this meet go on to the national championships March 4-6 in McCall, Idaho.
Soccer
It looked like "half a loaf" for a while but then Joel
Johnson, the coach's son put one "in back off the old
net" and the 'Birds pulled out a 2-1 win over the Vancouver Whitecap reserves.
"Aheee laddie," said UBC coach Joe Johnson when
asked how his team did on the weekend.
Bruce Biles, an engineer at UBC who does not have
a red jacket, was the other goal scorer. Biles likes to
patrol.
Track
The UBC track field team was in Moscow, Idaho,
Saturday to compete in the University of Idaho's Vandal Invitational track meet and continued to enjoy early season success.
Individually UBC excelled. Simon Hoogerverf set a
meet record in winning the 1000 yard race with a time
of 2:07.6. Other first place finishers were Bob Dalton
in the 55 meter race and Warren Lee in the 55 meter
hurdles.
UBC also won the men's and women's 44 meter
races in times of 45.4 (Wayne Davis) and 57.1 (Tinker
Allister).
UBC next competes Feb. 21 in Seattle at the University of Washington Invitational. The Canada West
championships are March 4, 5 and 6 in Edmonton.
Wrestling
Although the athletic department was advertising
other sports, the Canada West wrestling championships were held at UBC over the weekend.
UBC placed fourth in the tournament behind first
place Lakehead University, and Saskatchewan and
Alberta.
The top wrestler for UBC was third year medical student Martin Gleave who took the 61 kg. division.
Other wrestlers who placed for UBC were Francis
Lauer second in the 68 kg. class and Wendell Cornwall, Hirose and Mattew Stephens who all had third
place finishes.
UBC will compete in the Canadian Intrauniversity
Athletic Union championships in March.
Curling
Did you know there was a women's curling team?
Well, you do now and that is only because this space
must be filled. The team will be in Saskatoon Feb. 18,
19 and 20 for the Canada West Championships.

in the fifth game against Alberta to
lose 15-17.
Ohman was pleased with his
team's performance but felt it ran
out of gas in the last two matches.
He was especially disappointed
about losing to UVic because "we
hate Victoria with a passion."
Ohman singled out Brad Willock
and Paul Thiessen for special
praise. He said Thiessen played his
best tournament of the year and
while Willock was in Calgary he
received an invitation to attend the
national team tryout camp in May.
The tournament was a disappointment for UBC women.
After going 3-2 in the two tournaments before Christmas UBC has
gone 2-3 in the last two.
But coach Sandy Silver still feels
her team has improved. "We are
playing better than in the fall, but
not as well as I expected we would
be."
• UBC defeated the Universities of
Lethbridge and Alberta while losing
to Calgary, Saskatchewan and Victoria.
Silver said Tara Sen ft was her
best player in the tournament while
Karen Blair also played strong.
The Thunderbird women will
host the University of Manitoba
this Wednesday at 7:00 p.m. in War
Memorial gym. The two teams met
at the Dalhousie tournament in
January with UBC coming out on
top.
The men and women will both
host the fifth and final Canada
West tournament February 26-27.
Juniors win
By SCOTT McDONALD
The UBC women's junior varsity
basketball team rode the hot hand
in Gayle Hughes to a 59-56iwiniover
Retreads in the first game of the
Vancouver women's Senior B finals
last Thursday.
Hughes hit on 15 of 23 shots
from the floor to lead all scorers
with 30 points. UBC coach Neil
Brown said Hughes had an excellent
game penetrating Retrad's zone.
Janene Seabrook added 14 points
for UBC.
The senior B championships is a
two game total point series and the
second game will be played this
Thursday at 9 p.m. at John Oliver
Secondary school.
This game promises to be close as
the last one when the lead bounced
back and forth between the teams.
UBC and the Retreads have met
three times this year with UBC taking two of those games.
The game's only bad note was
Seabrook injuring her knee. She
may miss the final game. She will be
examined today to find out whether
she will be fit to play.
The win pushes UBC's season
record to 19-9. Five of the wins
came from games with the University of Victoria. Brown said he was
very pleased because Victoria has
the best varsity team in the country
and UBC has the worst.
The men's and women's basketball Thunderbird teams also played
on the weekend. They were both in
Saskatchewan and each lost a pair
of games to the University of
Saskatchewan.
The men were dumped 76-69 Friday and 80-62 Saturday. Pat West
and Bob Forsyth each hit for 14
points. Forsyth was again the scoring leader on Saturday with 19
points while Ross Marshall had 14.
UBC's record now drops to 2-14.
Next is a series of home games
against the University of
Lethbridge.
The Thunderbird women actually
led in both games before going
down 69-42 Friday and 89-55 Saturday. Cathy Bultitude tossed in 16
points Saturday. The losses pushes
the women's record to 0-18. There
are only two games left to avoid a
winless year for the second straight
season.
The only problem is that these
games are also against Lethbridge.
When UBC played Lethbridge in
early January the women lost by 39
and 45 points. But both were away
games so they could have a better
chance at home.
Hockey wins one
By HARRY HERTSCHEG
The UBC men's hockey team's
good solid efforts haven't been
rewarded too often this year but
Saturday night was an exception.
The Thunderbirds broke a five
game losing streak edging Calgary
Dinosaurs 5-4 at the Thunderbird
Winter Sports Centre — their first
victory at home since the season
opener. Calgary beat the T-Birds
6-3 Friday night.
Jim Allison scored the winning
goal Saturday at 9:24 of the third
period with a slap shot from inside
the left face-off circle, beating
Dinosaur netminder Jeff Lastuka
on the short side.
Other UBC goal scorers in the
close checking game were Greg
Cockrill, Darcy Alexander, Bill
Holowaty (his 15th of the season),
and Ted Cotter.
The 'Birds put together three
periods of decent hockey for a
change and deserve full credit for
the win. Cockrill opened the scoring
in the second minute of the game
and the 'Birds went on from there
to record 26 shots on goal in the
first period, while outshooting the
Dinosaurs 51-23 in the game.
Although UBC's defense had
trouble clearing the puck in front of
its net at times, Ian McEachern
came up with a few stalwart saves in
a close and rather exciting game in
front of 150 fans.
In another closely matched game
on Friday, inconsistancy cost the
'Birds as they coughed up three
goals in the third period en route to
a 6-3 loss, before a relatively large
crowd of 300.
After trailing 2-0 at one point
during the first, the 'Birds came
back with three straight goals by
Jim Allison, Bill Holowaty, and
Ted Allison. The 'Birds outshot the
Dinos 32-30. Ron Paterson was in
the nets for UBC.
Although the 'Birds have often
outshot their opponents this year,
they haven't been able to get that
many good shots from in front of
the net.
The breaks haven't always gone
UBC's way.
"Whereas we'll work real hard
and get nothing, it seems the other
team will get a few breaks and
capitalize on them," said
defenseman Drew Hunt.
But things appear to be looking
up, although a little too late this
season.
"We've improved well over 100
per cent since the beginning of the
year," said Hunt, who missed
Saturday's game because of a
sprained ankle. Missing both games
were Kevin Argue with a concussion
suffered last week and Terry
McDonald who was too ill to play. Page 6

B.C. government cuts hit
VICTORIA — The B.C. government is to blame for university and
college budget crises, a federal cabinet minister said Friday.
"The federal government is not
backing away from federal transfers
to provincial governments for post-
secondary education," said federal
economic development minister
Bud Olson at the University of Victoria. "What we are backing away
from is another agreement like the
last one signed with the provinces in
1977."
Olson told UVic students that in
the past five years, B.C.'s share of
post-secondary education  funding
has dropped to 32 from 42 per cent,
while Ottawa's share has climbed to
54 per cent.
"All federal aid for post-secondary education has not reached universities and colleges," he said.
In his November budget federal
finance -minister Allan MacEachen
said he was considering cutting $5
billion dollars from the Established
Programs Funding program, including more than $600 million
from B.C.
Olson said he considered higher
education critical to Canada's economic development.
"My concern is for the serious

them for pending cuts in B.C.'s
education budget.
Student association president
Robin Williams said the premier's
visit was a positive move for the
campus. "Hewas giving a realistic
picture of the economy," he said.
"I told him we have been asked
by the institute to endorse a 25 per
cent tuition increase, and that we
won't be opposing it because the
school needs the bail-out."
Williams added Bennett said he
was willing to establish a group to
evaluate tuition fees and travel to
post secondary institutions across
the province.

Videovideovideovideovideovideovideo
By ALICE THOMPSON
Through the window you see a
blank, flickering television set
centered in the spacious SUB
gallery.
The door to the gallery is closed
and a sign invites you to SUB 205.
Due to the lack of a cable attachment in SUB gallery, Merike
Talve's work is installed upstairs in
a room across from the SUB
ballroom entrance.
Fortunately, SUB 205's
claustrophobic atmosphere is a
more effective setting for Talve's
installation. At the front of the
room is a television set hooked up
to regular daytime programming,
and at the back is a video cassette
playing Talve's own tape. The
drawn curtains and dim lighting
create a link with the basement
family room where young minds
absorb the T.V. reality. Talve's
theme is the influence television has
on our lives. We are the Television
Generation she refers to in her title,
'FIRST TELEVISION GENERATION BOOM.' While social scientists chart the overall cultural effect
of television as reflected in
statistics, Talve has concentrated on
the personal/political approach.
Her work evolved from her observations of the influence of television on her own emotional and intellectual makeup.
Talve says, "Being a woman, my
focus is on women's image in television."
Appropriately, while we talk a
soap opera is broadcasting
"teevee" world of women. Within
several minutes you see:
• Two women making a bitter
exchange, one woman denying she
is to blame because 'your marriage
is on the rocks.'
• A woman announcing the firing of another woman; the female
recipient of the news expresses relief
the fired woman was an eavesdropper and troublemaker.
• A scene where a woman
soothes a troubled male brow.
Talve's use of channel 4 — noted
for its daytime concentration on
soaps and game shows — is an
astute move to point out television's
myths about women. However,
Talve avoids too feminist a slant
to reach a broader audience.
"The tape I made goes beyond
that (a focus on women) and talks
to a common thread in our generation, male and female. It's alluding
to sex, politics, religion — or rather
the sex, politics and religion that is
filtered through the T.V."
Talve's tape works on many
levels to fulfil her intentions. On a
literal level, poetry/prose comments are displayed on the video
screen with an audio accompaniment. These written segments alternate between poetic wordplay,
manifesto-like statements, and
direct commands for the viewer to
take responsibility for what they absorb from television — to 'switch
your mind back to manual.' The
wordplay has frequent (lashes of
excellence, such as: "cable, able,
cable, able, is the cable able to feed
back," "audio/visual individual"
and "sensitivity, sense activity."
As a comment on televison, the
tape functions on a symbolic and
aesthetic level to support and flesh
out the literal, political aspects of
Talve's statement. The tape's
regular, slow switching back and
forth from poetry to an image of a
woman watching television is in
deliberate contrast to the fast-
paced, smooth editing of today's
television. The garbled electronic
noise accompanying the woman
viewer is reminiscent of a department store's hundred murmuring
display televisions.
This tape works even when the
viewer's attention in on the cable
television. You are meant to notice
your own attempt to filter out her
tape as  you concentrate on  the
soaps. The main thrust of Talve's
work is the dynamics created in the
viewer's mind when caught in this
disconcerting audio-ambience.
Particularily admirable is the way
Talve has used the daytime soaps.
With the poetic/political dialogue
coming from behind you and with
the heightened awareness created in
the viewer, the cable television
hangs itself. You become uncomfortably aware of the triviality and
distorted reality of the soaps and
hence most televison.
As an indication of the exciting
possibilities of video art, Talve has
made herself part of the installation
and is subjecting herself to a week
long immersion in the environment
she created. The art process has not
stopped at the installation.
Merike Talve invites your discussion and feedback, and will be
available nine to five until Friday.

Randall's women powerful
j^
By CORINNA SUNDARARAJAN
The black night swallowed
the sound of those terrible cries
Ay. . .! Ay. . .! the nation is in tears
the moans you hear
are like childbirth cries in the night. . .
— song by Carlos Mejia Godoy
You are a Nicaraguan peasant woman
whose house was set on fire, killing all your
children.
You are a Nicaraguan business woman
whose daughter disappeared two years ago
and may be alive or dead.
You are a Nicaraguan student whose husband was gunned down in the street.
You are the subject of Margaret Randall's
Sandino's Daughters, a powerful collection
of the testimonies of Nicaraguan women —
dent positions. When their husbands deserted
them, the women became breadwinners.
When the 1973 earthquake left thousands of
Nicaraguans destitute, these women provided
the social aid which the dictatorship did not.
From here, it was a matter of moments —
until a friend was killed or a child went
underground — before the women participated in revolutionary activity against
Somoza. Their integration into the work
force to save their families led inevitably to
support of the FSLN to save their country.
Interestingly, Randall shows it was the peasant and working class women who first joined the revolution, not because of refined
ideology, but simply because the daily struggle to survive evolved into a larger struggle
against repression. They were used to making
SANDINO'S  DAUGHTERS  . . .   powerful  collection  of  Nicaraguan  women's
testimonies of their role in the revolution
peasant, working class, professional and
bourgeois — who joined with their brothers
in the 40 year struggle to overthrow the
repressive Somoza dictatorship.
On July 19, 1979 the people of Nicaragua,
led by the Sandinist National Liberation
Front (FSLN) succeeded. Within four months Randall, an expatriate American living in
Cuba, was accumulating hundreds of
photographs and tapes of these women who,
in unprecedented numbers, broke through
the restrictions of their traditional roles and
integrated themselves first into the civil war
and later into the new government after victory.
These women, from mountain peasants to
government administrators, frankly and eloquently describe their involvement in the
struggle, sharing not only the moment of
danger and persecution, but also the ordinary
moments of their lives as mothers, wives and
daughters. With self-effacing skill, Randall
allows the women to tell their own stories —
of prison torture and family reunions —
through poems, songs and letters intertwined
with informal conversation. Their historic
achievements as revolutionists become very
personal fulfillments as women.
In recording these testimonies, Randall
keeps a low profile. She sets the scene in a
concise but forceful foreword, returning only
to introduce each speaker with an insight that
gives the reader an immediate sense of intimacy. Her one moment of recognition is a
strong yet easily missed tribute — in listing
the books which helped shape the FSLN's
ideology, a guerrilla commander mentions
Randall's own Cuban Women Now
alongside the classics, Che's Guerrilla Warfare and Lenin's The State and Revolution. It
is this intimacy with the women's struggle
that makes Sandino's Daughters such absorbing and affecting reading.
For even before joining the revolutionary
movement, Randall shows how these women
were involved in struggle. The poverty and
crippled Nicaraguan economy pushed
women into the work force simply to keep
their families fed. Although Spanish Catholic
tradition preached of women as passive and
dependent home ornaments, the social conditions forced them beyond the narrow
domestic roles to assume active and indepen-
sacrifices. Leo Guido, a founding member of
The Association of Nicaraguan Women Confronting the Nation's Problems, which successfully mobilized women into active struggle, recalls:
"The Christian mining community of
Siuna4iad asked me to come and talk about
our association. A hundred peasant women
came down from the mountains on foot!
Those women really wanted to get involved."
Despite the dangers, the common people
were beginning to spontaneously demand
change. Although the National Guard
notoriously employed torture to punish
FSLN members and intimidate the rest of the
population, the more people suffered the
more determined they became.
Randall interviews one peasant woman,
Amanda Pineda, whose suffering poignantly
proves the people's resilience. After her husband is arrested and imprisoned, Pineda carries on his work, organizing protests and
rallies. She too is arrested and tortured,
raped 17 consecutive times by prison guards.
When finally released, she fears returning to
her husband.
"They told him how all them had 'had'
me, and that I'd enjoyed it. I was afraid he
was going to reject me, that he wouldn't be
able to stand me anymore. I felt like I smelled
bad and couldn't get rid of the smell. But no.
He told me, 'Don't worry. That can happen
to any woman who fights or whose husband
is involved in the struggle.' "
Other women did not have such understanding husbands. Indeed, the priority of
political struggle over personal relationships
broke down many families. Children went
underground without saying goodbye.
Husbands and wives separated. But the
struggle also brought some families closer
together. Women whose children had been
arrested or killed simply took their place in
the revolutionary cause, sending messages,
providing safehouses and making contact
bombs.
Zulema Baltodano is one such woman. A
mother of eight children, most of whom were
active revolutionists, at first she resented the
cause. "So many dead sons and daughters.
Their deaths seemed senseless. They were
right in protesting but we mothers didn't
believe they could win. Each of us thought
our children would just be more martyrs."
But after her daughter, a field commander,
was arrested and tortured, Baltodano explains, "I didn't care if the whole world
knew I was a revolutionary. I became fully
involved."
This pattern of desperation was the same
for thousands of working class women, but
the widespread repression of somoza's
regime outraged women from all classes.
Violent death was an every day reality, and
such brutality changed many people's values.
Carmen Rodriguez, a policewoman under
Somoza, became so repelled by her regime's
methods of torture and interrogation that she
joined the FSLN at a double peril to her life.
"Working for the Revolution within the
Guard was very dangerous," she explains.
"If they ever found me out they would have
killed me on the spot. I always had to be on
guard, even on the streets where I could easily have been a target for an FSLN comrade."
Sandino's Daughters
By Margaret Randall
New Star Books
220 pages
Such personal heroism and sacrifice fueled
the revolution. Randall movingly describes
how one woman's child, conceived after she
was raped in prison, became the symbol of
the struggle of life over death, a concrete
manifestation of the Nicaraguan women's
fighting spirit and resistence.
Throughout the social spectrum, the
women's involvement in the revolution had a
profound impact. The traditional sexism, the
belief that women were meant for domestic
servitude was irrevocably shattered when
they took up arms and were tortured and killed alongside the men. These women, from
field commanders to rank-and-file soldiers,
were mothers, wives and daughters who
transfered their love for family to love for the
entire nation.
Many of the youths, only 13, 14 or 15 at
the time of victory, chose to remain in the army despite the scholarships offered by the
FSLN at the war's end. One Sandinito girl
explains, "I love army life. Being here I can
do everything possible for our people. We
owe everything we are to our people. As long
as I live, I want to serve them."
ZULEMA . . . fully involved
Indeed, it was the Nicaraguan youth which
assumed leadership of the struggle, often inspiring the older women to realize their
potential as independent and political people.
The Sandinist militants over the age of 35
were mostly women, mothers of the revolutionary youths, and after leading squadrons,
running safehouses and assembling bombs,
they could no longer be dismissed as delicate
women in need of protection.
Commander Maria Tellez, who led the occupation of the National Palace in 1978,
demands of Randall and the reader, "How
could values not change in families where
loved ones were lost? What can't change?
Anything, even the role of women — so
deeply rooted — can change ..."
Although Sandino's Daughters is a complexly stimulating piece probing many depths
of revolutionary change, this message is
perhaps its final one. By identifying these
women as "Sandino's daughters," after the
Nicaraguan national hero who in 1934 successfully routed out the invading and occupying U.S. Marines, Randall not only relates
them to all progressive struggles for the people, but clearly sees them as a vital part of the
nation's identity. A new national identity of
equality for a new nation, or as Randall
herself succinctly states, "Women showed
their strength and determination in battle and
are not about to retreat now."

Keaton, Finney Shoot Moon
By SHAFFIN SHARIFF
The lines on Faith Dunlap's tired face indicate years of experience. For years, she has
stood by her husband George, a writer, and
taken care of their four children. But her life
is far from perfect. She and George are
drifting apart; he is having an affair, while
she tries to maintain some semblance of marriage. George and Faith Dunlap are involved
in a game of Hearts, and each is trying to
shoot the moon.
Shoot the Moon
Starring Diane Keaton and Albert Finney
Directed by Alan Parker
Opening Friday at Capitol Six
At the heart of Shoot the Moon is the
nuclear family, which Will and Ariel Durant
proclaimed "the nucleus of civilization" in
Story of Civilization. In Shoot the Moon, the
family is falling apart, without any of the
members knowing why.
For Faith, George has become as
transparent as the sheet of clear glass window
she looks out of — there is no mystery in his
character. When she remembers little, embarrassing anecdotes about his life, George
responds, "You always remember the wrong

years of experience
things, you know." For George, Faith has
become too knowledgeable. He's the writer,
the intellectual in the family, yet she has more
of an affinity with the children. When
George is alone, in a room, while Faith is
playing make-up with the kids, he sits with
his face in his hands, crying.
The years of living with Faith have eaten
away at his life too; Faith is an excellent
mother, but not someone he can live with.
Faith puts up a convincing pretext of loving
George in front of the children, but she feels
empty and somewhat worthless; she has
outlived her usefulness, and George has no
challenge to offer her.
The moment of their break-up comes the
morning after he wins a national book
award. The kids are happy; they see their
mother on television, standing by George and
kissing him when he wins the award. They
believe what they see on television.
The title of the movie comes from the
game of Hearts, and shoot the moon means
aiming for control by stockpiling hearts.
Faith and George Dunlap have been
stockpiling hearts for years without ever
reaching an impasse. At the moment of
breakup, it is Faith who has the better trump
card, and George knows it. It is he who walks
out and decides to gamble his family's lives
for his own happiness. The children, by and
large, try to overlook the separation and pretend everything's all right. The eldest, Sherry
(Dana Hill) cannot forgive her father. When
he comes to visit she hides in the room — and
lets him know it.
Faith, for her part, has lost all her trust in
George; he's someone she doesn't want in her
life. When George comes by their Marin
county house to give Sherry a birthday present, a typewriter — the symbol of all his
creativity — Faith tells him to go away
because Sherry doesn't want to see him. Unwilling to be shut out of his own house, he
breaks into it, assaults and locks Faith out,
and then proceeds to Sherry's room. The
typewriter is one connection George has to
Sherry; he doesn't know of any other way to
communicate to her.
Shoot the Moon is all about coming to
terms of a loss that is irrevocable, yet unforgettable. George keeps coming back to the
house because it means something to him;
losing it and the family is the great signal of

enough to make you cringe.
Melanie
Directed by Rex Bromfield
Opening Friday at Capitol Six
With the southern accent that
rings false the moment it is drooled,
Glynnis O'Connor has a lead role
that is as thankless as it is self-
defeating. What the filmmakers
were hoping to accomplish with her
character is nearly impossible to imagine, but what they have achieved
in Melanie is a nightmare.
Melanie is so unstructured and
unmannered, it appears to have
been put together in an office shredding machine. There are so many
lapses in the narrative that the film
becomes a prime example of
unintentionally non-narrative
cinema.
There is a line in the movie that
explains O'Connor and Cummings'
characters perfectly: she is "an illiterate and he is a slowlearner."
The whole movie is based on one
theme — Melanie and Manning's
are two individuals who are learning
new and wonderful things. She's
learning how to read and write,
while he's learning to "live and
love."
Melanie hasn't a single
pleasurable moment. The undisciplined editing, the hopelessly
immature script and uninspired
direction drive Melanie to ground
from the moment you see wheat-
fields strumming in the air. The one
person who escapes relatively
unscathed is Cummings, whose
character is modelled on a series of
Burt Reynolds roles; he's in this picture to sell himself and make the audience feel good about him. Cummings is a good-natured, sometimes
funny actor — and as unacceptable
as anything this film has to offer.
There are several potentially
good themes running through
Melanie — the city versus country
conflict, and the determined effort
of an individual to educate herself
and defend her rights, to name the
major ones — but Melanie is a fairy
tale at the core; there isn't a
believable moment in the whole picture, which is essentially a PR picture for Cummings.
The picture of Glynnis O'Connor
on the poster for Melanie has her
poised as if she were the personification of pioneer filmmaker
D.W. Griffith's Woman figure.
The caption underneath the picture
states: "... A Woman's
Triumph." This film isn't anyone's
triumph. It is Beyond Bad.
his impotency and loss of power. When he
sees Faith having a relationship with Frank
(Peter Heller), a construction worker, he
feels angry but there is nothing he can do
about it so he responds in economic terms.
"There is no fucking way I'm paying for that
swimming pool," he says.
Shoot the Moon is the first American picture since Interiors that dealt with the nuclear
family's breakup in an insightful, affecting
way. It isn't just the characters' emotions
that are at stake; everything's at stake. When
George walks out, he forfeits all he and Faith
have worked for, and there is no way he can
against her window are reminscent of the
same composition in Woody Allen's Interiors. It may be that Parker cast her as a
result of Interiors and the range Keaton exhibited in that movie. Faith isn't as repressed
as Renata was in Interiors, but she has the
same mature, anguished look in some of the
scenes.
What is fundamentally wrong with some of
Shoot the Moon's scenes is a deliberately and
laboriously artistic look that crippled Ordinary People. The shots of the Martin county home seem like Constable paintings; the
greens are that sharp. But once Parker gets

get it back. His new lover, for whom he left
Faith, is practical and unaccomodating. She
puts up with his turmoil, but she doesn't let
the kids take advantage of her. She comforts
George, then tells him, "I love you. But, I'll
find somebody else if I have to."
As George Dunlap, Albert Finney gives a
restrained, effective performance. Finney has
an ability to suggest an affable joviality, but
he also has the skill and maturity to suggest
George as a tormented, tortured character.
His George Dunlap is not wild and explosive
until the end. When Faith rhetorically asks
him, "Don't we have to be mature about it?"
he accepts the conventionality of being
"adult" and calm. Yet inside, he is pent up
with rage.
There are certain moves in Finney's performance to suggest George's genuine rage and
torment. It takes a culpable actor to carry off
a shot in which he is required to break into
tears without seeming maudlin or false —
with the camera pulling in for a tight close-
up. The shot of George crying is the first
chance we have to see him alone — and one
of the first shots of the film.
In Diane Keaton, Alan Parker has found
an actress of remarkable depth and range.
Her Faith Dunlap doesn't ask for sympathy;
she requires it. She too is pent up with hostility; the divorce has left both of them calm and
mad as hell. At a restaurant scene later in the
movie, George and Faith have a fight and
then settle down for the dinner. They can still
stand each other, but she doesn't want him
back. She's enjoying the freedom.
Some of the  shots of Keaton leaning
hooked on beach scenes, where George
spends most of his free time, he just can't
seem to let go. He's too fond of the beauty
and the image to pay attention to what's
wrong with George and Faith's lives. The
composition is so perfect at times, it's annoying.
But there is life in some of the "artistic"
images; the shots aren't technically perfect
for their own sake as in some Australian
films. Nothing in Parker's previous three
films, Bugsy Malone, Midnight Express, and
Fame indicated that he had this much
restraint in him. If Shoot the Moon doesn't
hold up as a whole — and the conclusion is
too powerful for its own good — it is not that
Parker hasn't tried, and what he has accomplished goes far beyond what Ordinary
People and Kramer vs. Kramer had to offer.
Shoot the Moon stays with you, and it gets
better the more you think back about some
scenes. The images of the kids, each with her
own distinctive personality stays with you;
these are real kids, not pastiche compositions. There is a revealing scene early in the
movie when George and Faith are leaving for
the book awards dinner; three of the four
kids kiss Faith, while only one goes near
George when the couple are in the car. Even
unbeknownst to them, the kids are taking
sides.
Nearly everything about Shoot the Moon is
first rate, and much of the credit deserves to
go to writer Bo Goldman (One Flew Over the
Cuckoos' Nest, Melvin and Howard), who
has an impressive ear for dialogue and
characterization. Page 10

AUCE too small, poor, independent?
By SANDY LUNDY
Members of the Association of
University and College Employees
have a choice. We can join a legitimate public sector union, such as
the Canadian Union of Public Employees, in which case we will obtain the benefits of unionization.
Alternatively, we can remain as
members of a small independent
staff association, in which case we
will not benefit to the same degree.
Consider the facts. CUPE at
UBC has never had a strike, and yet
the clerical and secretarial rates are
higher than in AUCE. The CUPE
rates range from a current low of
$1,209.50 monthly for a medical records clerk to a high, effective April
1982, of $1,929 for an administrative secretary. The AUCE range is
$1,132 to $1,738 for clerical and
secretarial jobs.
AUCE has had two strikes in
eight years, and the leadership is
contemplating one for this year.
The issue will be the old chestnut of
"equal pay for work of equal
value" and the specific proposal is
to raise the base rate to $1,500. This
means aiming for a settlement of
32.5 per cent, so presumably the initial demand will be in the range of
35 per cent or even 40 per cent plus.

Sexuality unnatural
Harry Britt is an ideologue for
the liberal left, and like all
idealouges his thought is formed to
legitimate his own personal circumstance. In Glen Sanford's article, Breaking out of the sexist trap,
(Feb. 12) Britt makes a number of
ignorant statements.
Britt claims, "All of us are trapped in a sexist world that does not
allow us to develop naturally as
homosexuals or heterosexuals,"
and that, "for future generations
we must get rid of homophobia so
gays and lesbians can grow up
naturally — or straights that don't
want to live in the narrow confines
of society."
I do not disagree that we are trapped in a sexist society (certainly not
wprld). However, I disagree with
Britt when he makes naturalistic
claims. Sexuality, either homosexual or heterosexual is not natural,
yet reproduction and thus sex is. It
would appear to me that Britt does
not want to be caught in a
naturalistic society which claims
that the natural ends of sex are the
proper ones.
Furthermore Britt's claims that
people should be allowed to grow
up naturally is patently absurb.
People may wish to escape the nar
row confines of our present society,
But certainly any escape is not to
nature but merely to another society
— a society which Britt approves
of.
If Britt truly wants a society
without rules of government or confines, it is difficult to say what he is
doing in politics. What he is advocating is fairly built into the
American political system — of
politics of interest. His position is
basically very simple. Essentially,
get a group of people together that
think they are being exploited, and
proceed to make political statements. What Britt does is essentially
the same thing that ideologues from
the new right do: want something to
justify personal preference and call
it natural, just like Reagan wants
laissez-faire and calls that natural.
Britt's shallow and opaque
thoughts may belong in the politics
of a large city where interest groups
dominate, but they certainly do not
belong on a university campus. Certainly the Gay Club could have
presented a more capable speaker
who could have explained the
politics of being gay without resorting to trite ideology.

THE UBYSSEY
February 16, 1982
Published Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays throughout
the university year by the Alma Mater Society of'the
University of B.C. Editorial opinions are those of the
staff and not of the AMS or the university administra-,
tion. Member, Canadian University Press. The
Ubyssey's editorial office is in room 241k of the Student
Union Building. Editorial departments, 228-2301; Advertising, 228-3977.
"Give the proles drink and then they won't think," declared Kevin McGee. Julie Wheelwright
thought it was a great idea, and after consultation with Scott McDonald and Craig Brooks, a
decree came fourth: "Let their be beer at the annual general meeting." "Lovely idea, lovely
idea," screamed Arnold Hedstrom, who fell over himself and his bottle of beer in an effort to
get at the heart of the story. "Journalism is a dirty business," Eric Eggertson thought ryely to
himself as he watched Brian Jones and Doug Schmidt lick up the spilled beer. But Mark at-
tisha was troubled. He talked it over with Alic Thompson and they soon decided somebody in
a position of authority should be told about the state of decadence descending on UBC.
After much debate, they thought they should inform the libel party, always renowned as a
group of concerned individuals. But they arrived at the door just in time to witness Heesok
Chang bouncing out on his head, muttering something about fitness. "It's preposterous,"
cursed Shaffin Shariff, as he accidentally spit in Craig Yuill's camera and Corinna Sundarara-
jan's eye. Alic Thompson was coy. "Don't you dare tell anyone," Keith Baldrey warned Glen
Sandford and Harry Hertscheg.
Is this practical in a year of retrenchment?
Most of us have heard Clark
Kerr's definition of a university:
"A group of faculty entrepreneurs
with a mutal grievance over parking." Gee whiz, we're beginning to
make those guys look like pikers.
(Not that a base rate of $1,500 isn't
ultimately reasonable, but is it realistic this year, when wage controls
are probably going to be imposed?)
Anyhow, unless we get into
CUPE right away, a strike in
AUCE is inevitable this year and we
all know how it will happen. The
contract committee will go into negotiations with the university, and
they will get frustrated because their
demands are not met immediately.
Right, they'll say, we need a
strike vote to show the university
that we mean what we say and that
the membership are behind us. The
membership, knowing they are
dead in the water if they do not
back up their representatives, will
vote for a strike "if necessary."
The catch is that the AUCE leaders say different things at different
times. The contract committee report in the February, 1982 AUCE
newsletter states, "This committee
takes the view that a strike vote is
only an effective bargaining tool
when it credibly indicates your intention to actually strike, and to go
on striking until your demands are
met." So if we vote even 51 per cent
in favor they will take this as an intention to actually strike, and the
bromide that action still has to be
approved in a membership meeting
is  no  protection,  because we all
know how heated those meetings
get.
Hence the membership is in a no-
win situation, and this is because of
a fundamental weakness in the concept of AUCE. Being small, poor
and independent AUCE has no
range of resources other than strike
to back up our demands. A union
membership does not protect its interests exclusively through "militant and fighting unity" (to quote
Kitty Cheema). There are times,
such as the current depression,
when the money versus jobs tradeoff needs to be considered, and
when wily negotiating skills are required.
ard response is, "Well, if you don't
like what we're doing, come and
help." How many women, with a
full-time job at the office, and a
full-time job at home, can take on a
third job riding herd on the union?
Just now, our priorities are
wrong. We're putting the contract
ahead of getting into CUPE. The
university's operating budget for
1982-83 isn't going to be known until the end of April or sometime in
May. The voting on the AUCE contract is supposed to take place on
Saturday, March 6. The contract
committee could be instructed not
to open negotiations until the university's    operating    increase    is
p^rap^ciiv*^
CUPE has not got a large strike
fund, but what it has developed is a
fine research department and communication, negotiation and administrative skills in its leaders.
CUPE, like other Canadian Labor Congress unions, has ethical
standards, and foremost amongst
them is the concept that the membership holds power at convention,
where policy is decided, and at all
other times the officers hold power.
The officers of CUPE are therefore
responsible for the well-being of the
union and are accountable for the
effective use of power.
AUCE gets along on the woolly
notion that the membership holds
power all the time, so whenever dissatisfaction is expressed, the stand-
known. We could then use the next
three months to get into CUPE. It is
our only chance of avoiding a
strike.

Writing editorials helps activate students, making
them aware of the implications of important concerns.
However, everyone gets pretty bored reading the
same trite appeals for an end to apathy and a return to
the five cent cigar. A wide variety of topics comes to
mind.
We are appalled by the violence displayed by the
People's Front Against Fascist and Racist Violence at
two anti-fascist demonstrations this year. Yet, we
can't ignore the beneficial effect on our depressed
lumber industry of the increased sales of two-by-fours.
A third world war must never be allowed to happen.
But you must admit the military develops new
technologies and provides jobs.
We're all for women's rights, but people need rights
too.
A free press is a good thing. On the other hand, we
don't want to deter the monopolies like Southam
which reap millions each year.
Acid rain is terrible. Yet a good dose of acid would
probably clean the lakes really fast.
This year's Alma Mater Society executive were
completely useless. But you have to give them credit
for their hard work. Or maybe you don't.
Lower income people must be given the opportunity
to go to university so our society can become more
egalitarian. Then again, if the poor start going to
university, who's going to work in the factories?
Television is bad for the intellect. On the other hand,
without television we would have to think for
ourselves.
Classes are too short. Mind you, if they were any
longer they would be too long.
The U.S. intervention in El Salvador is bad. Then
again, without repressive regimes, what would the
media ignore?
Nuclear aircraft carriers in English Bay are a horrible
symbol of U.S. aggression. Mind you, weren't those
sailors friendly?
The spray-paint vandals who've defaced our campus should be arrested. Then again, it's a pleasant
change from dreary grey we're used to.
Students should act now. Yet, if there were a viable
movement of student unrest on this campus
something might happen. Tuesday, February 16,1982

Bill is naughty lef tie
Bill Tieleman in his letter to The Ubyssey (Now, as I've said so
many times before, Feb. 4, 1982), continues his attacks on Marxist-
Leninist (including, presumably, anybody who even associates with
them) as well as against whoever else he happens to disagree with.
There are two issues arising from his letter which cannot be overlooked.
He accuses the CPC (M-L) of responsibility of incidents that have
sometimes arisen during public demonstrations and condemns them
for defending themselves when they are attacked for exercising their
rights. This is the same position taken by the police and the capitalist
press but those charges don't stand up, even in the courts, because it
is difficult to ignore the facts.
He also seems to feel that the student movement or any other

popular movement can be declared the private property of some
group or individuals who can decide who has the right to participate
in or speak at "their events" on the basis of people's political position.
What is the position which certain forces, including many "progressives" are so interested in censoring? It is the view that,
regardless of political differences, students must unite in action,
whether it is on the question of racist and fascist violence, the war
preparations of the two superpowers, or the issue of cutbacks and fee
increases.
In any case, we uphold that unity of the students around a program of action in defense of their interests. People who try to make
their political position the basis of unity amongst students, TAs or
whoever, or who try to make the student movement their personal
property will only cause splits in and major setbacks to the student
movement.
Neither do we make a distinction between presentation of ideas
and defence of those ideas. We insist that there be no contradiction
between what people say and what they do.

Foreign students an asset
In response to James C. Burdon's
recent comments regarding the supposed "subsidies" international
students receive from the provincial
government: international students
(who make up less than 3 Vz per cent
of total UBC enrolment) pay for
tuition, books, rent, clothes, food,
transportation and other items just
like everyone else, with no extraordinary aid from either the provincial or federal governments.
They are not eligible for provin-
cially funded medical services insurance during the first year here.
They are not eligible for Canada
student loans and there are very few
UBC scholarships which they may
even apply for. Those who work as
TA's or RA's at UBC pay taxes on
the money they receive and contribute to Unemployment Insurance
and Canada Pension Plan. They are
not automatically, however, eligible
to receive either UIC or CPP
benefits.
When fees are raised they are
raised for everyone and no group is
exempt from nor provided with a
subsidy toward any general fee increase. Canadians also benefit
academically and financially from
the research international students
do while qualifying for various
degrees.

My previous letter (Stop foreign

information. This is not surprising
when one realizes that I had submitted it for publication last
November. No doubt many of my
critics have been falling all over
themselves in order to produce letters which accuse me of ignorance
and/or dishonesty. Therefore, I
shall set the record straight about
these potential points of contention.
Until last month few of us knew
the extent to which tuition fees
would rise. A lot of people who
claimed to be in the know and suggested that they would go up by
more than 60 per cent. So anyone
such as myself can be excused for
stating (back in November) that we
"could face fee increases as great as
60 per cent."
Unfortunately there is a real
possibility that they could rise by
over 60 per cent in 1983. The many
decades of gross economic
mismanagement have caught up
with B.C.

Ubyssey seeking freedom with responsibility
By GLEN SANFORD
Freedom of the press belongs to those who
own one.
—A.J. Liebling, press critic
A free press is a basic foundation of a
democratic society. One of its primary roles
is to act as a watchdog of politicians, so it is
absurd for politicians to have any control
over the press. But at UBC they do. UBC's
(freestyle)
student council currently controls The
Ubyssey. But that can change. In mid-
March a referendum for Ubyssey autonomy
will give students the chance to take over
their own newspaper.
Autonomy for The Ubyssey means
students would directly fund the newspaper
and directly elect their own representatives
to The Ubyssey's board of directors. Student council would no longer have financial
and/or political control, and The Ubyssey
would be directly responsible to the
students who own and pay for it.
In addition to the basic ideal of
separating the political body from the press,
there is another important reason for The
Ubyssey becoming autonomous. The Alma
Mater  Society  executive   does   not   fully
understand the way a newspaper functions
— The Ubyssey staff does.
In recent years The Ubyssey has been
plagued by financial mismanagement. Two
years ago the AMS decided to take billings
from the publications office off the computer system. The invoices from 1979-80
were not prepared until the summer of
1981.
Last year the AMS hired an advertising
manager with no input from The Ubyssey
staff. Although the manager had professional experience, he apparently was not
suited to handle The Ubyssey's advertising.
The AMS had to subsidize The Ubyssey by
an additional $20,000 that year.
Relationships between the AMS and
Ubyssey staffs have traditionally been
rocky. The most recent example of a major
confrontation took place in the summer of
1980, when student council tried to
establish a media board which would have
appointed the editor. The dispute was
resolved with the appointment of a media
iiaison committee, but the incident aroused
serious questioning of council's attitude
toward the paper.

'Eckankar poor candidate
In the Feb. 2 edition of The
Ubyssey, an article appeared entitled "Priest slams esoteric cults" by
Muriel Draaisma, in which
Eckankar was mentioned. I would
like to take this opportunity to correct several incorrect statements
made in the article, which covered a
talk given by Father Richard
Mugford at St. Mark's College.
Having been a member of
Eckankar for almost eleven years, I
feel I must tell you that Eckankar is
a very poor candidate for the term
"cult." The word "cult" indicates
a peculiar form of worship, usually
centering on a charismatic leader,
and also usually implying strange
and exotic practices. In these times
it has also taken on many
derogatory meanings having
nothing to do with its origins, and
much to do with questionable
techniques involved in getting
members.
In Eckankar there is no worship
unless the individual chooses to do
so at the temple within himself. Nor
is Eckankar a sect or splinter from
any other organization. The ancient
ECK teachings have come down in
their pure form, passed on from
one ECK Master to another since
the early dawn of history. Nor is
Eckankar an "occult" path of hidden mysteries and secret
knowledge. Each ECKist is given
certain techniques that, when practiced faithfully, bring about the
religious experience of being.
Eckankar does not proselytize,
and the only outer form which the
organization takes is through
Eckankar centres which sell books
on the teachings and also through
seminars and lecture series. There is
no church to which one "belongs"
in Eckankar. It is an intensely personal and individual path which
characteristically attracts only those
who have a very strong sense of
self.
Far from throwing out nets to attract followers by devious means,
Eckankar seeks to actively
discourage this kind of uninformed
seeker. Anyone looking to join
Eckankar is advised repeatedly to
read as much as possible before
making any decision to join, and is
also directed to public discussion
groups where the teachings of
Eckankar are discussed openly and
where the seeker is encouraged to
ask questions.
I have often heard the living ECK
Master himself advise those looking
at Eckankar that there is no rush to
step onto the path, and that the best
way is to read one of the books and
then set it aside for six months or a
year, or longer, and just consider it
in your own time, because it is a
very serious step and not to be
taken lightly.

The membership of Eckankar is
such a broad spectrum of ages and
backgrounds that to be grouped indiscriminately with those seeking
out the young and gullible is rather
disturbing. Eckankar has never
made a play for any group of any
kind. Its stated and only purpose is
to make the ancient teachings of
Eckankar available to those seeking
answers to the basic questions
which have plagued mankind since
the beginning of time: Who am I?;
Why am I here? and Where am I
going?
Rev. Mugford is further quoted
as stating that Eckankar is "very
wealthy." I don't know where he
got this impression, but it is certainly not true. At least, not financially.
Eckankar does not solicit funds
from its members or others, nor
does it require tithing. Yet
Eckankar teaches that all things
physical and spiritual must be earned and payed for.
Eckankar's major source of
finance is its yearly membership fee,
seminars held throughout the world
and voluntary donations. The majority of local seminar income is retained by the local group to present
the ECK teachings in their community. Eckankar is a tax exempt
organization under the laws of the
United States and Canada and as
such carries on no commercial
businesses.
If Rev. Mugford or anyone else
for that matter has any questions
about the membership fees or the
seminar fees in Eckankar, they need
only call the Eckankar centres or
visit one to have their questions
answered in this regard. It doesn't
seem to me that this has ever been a
concern to anyone looking into
Eckankar.
Rev. Mugford also makes some
very outlandish statements about
the teachings of Eckankar and
about Darwin Gross, the Living
ECK Master from 1971 to 1981. But
they seem more the result of a very
cursory investigation into the
teachings of Eckankar than
anything else.

"People are inquisitive as to how
My Son and I communicate, two in
one body? The procedure is simple.
My Son, Eugene, tries to leave His
Mind totally blank. My Holy Voice
is heard above a void and My Son
rapidly takes My Dictation.
"My Holy Name is void of form.
It is never written on paper. My
humble Son will sign His Name to
hold you dear to Our Hearts."
Eugene Changey lives in a town
in Ohio where he holds a job as a
turret lathe operator at a tool and
die company. Changey says that in
his last life he worked as a carpenter
in Nazareth. After an absence of almost two millenia, the man who
calls himself the Son of God has
proclaimed himself to have returned.
In the religious revival going on
in the U.S. today, there are those
who are proclaiming God's word.
There are men and women who exercise God's healing power. Many
want to transform the government
to reflect the wishes of God. In
Ohio, a humble man has simply
said that he and God are one and
the same; his only message is that
God's love can save humanity and
the pursuit of good will defeat evil.
"As Almighty God, My Holy
Spirit has been in My Son's body
these past four decades. During this
time, the newspapers have treated
Us very shabbily with their silence.
They suppress information to which
the mass of people are entitled.
Thus, when people first learn of Us,
they may be skeptical.
"Even a humble college newspaper can publish for the students
that I am alive in breathing My second Son's body, after almost two
thousand years of silence after the
death of My first born Son, Jesus.
Mary, My Word, Eugene and Jesus
are the one and the same — reincarnated. "
Changey sends letters about twice
a year to more than 2,000 newspapers and dozens of political figures
throughout  the  English  speaking

the bank and give them away during

His holiness Pope John II received with great comfort and
joy the thoughtful message sent to him after the attempt on
his life, and he has directed the Secretariat of State to convey
his thanks.
His holiness deeply appreciates the sentiments manifested
in his regard, and he asks God to bless all those who have so
kindly prayed for him and expressed their solidarity with him.
In the love of our Lord Jesus Christ he sends his Apostolic
Blessing.

world. He also sends his books, one
of which notes that Changey has
followers in Canada, Australia and
New Zealand.
He complains that publishers,
editors and politicians tend to ignore these letters telling of the absolute proof that God is not dead and
has once again taken on human
form. He says God, his Father, was
once wrathful and resentful of how
newspapers "suppress information" but has mellowed to allow
them His mercy and forgiveness.
"My Voice is not one crying in
the wilderness, for some to hear My
Plea. I planted every blade of grass
and every living tree; I make the sun
to shine and the moon to shed its
light — please forgive Me, I was
carried away, I didn 't mean to give
you such a fright. "
The Deity Changey portrays in
his letters is kind and understanding
of human weakness. He sympathizes when Changey is tired or depressed and cuts short the times when He
dictates his thoughts to His son.
At other times, God is more demanding. In 1960 He told Changey
to travel to Washington and deliver
a suitcase of books dictated by God
to U.S. president Dwight Eisenhower. Changey was also required
to withdraw all of his savings from
terious suitcase. After several attempts to reach the president he had
decided to get the writings to the
president through the agencies that
protect him. He was obscure and
hesitant in describing what the suitcase contained.
The federal agents, Changey
says, became nervous and defensive
in the presence of God's light. They
pelted him with questions, and
though they promised to send the
suitcase to the White House, when
he returned home he found they
had sent the books back.
Changey praises the FBI and
treasury agents for the polite and
helpful treatment he received from
them. He rid himself of what was
left of his savings by stuffing them
in the poor box of a Washington
church, then returned home to a
different sort of treatment.
"/ am here on Earth, to give
Grace to the humble and abhor the
proud. I stand upon the face of this
Earth and below My ROAR!! I
Love people who hold me in fascination — their reward in Heaven
will be great.
"The turbulence that has swept
this World is not to My liking. Love
is preached on Sunday but wickedness prevails throughout the week.
Love can uphold destiny, if given a
chance — where Grace can prevail.
The crime against Justice makes a
mockery of Religion. Love is wanton to test fear but hell holds no
bond for the unjust.
"Crime will not go unpunished.
Justice will triumph over evil, as the
blade of the Reaper flails against
her adversary — which is life. The
just will be severed from the unjust.
In the end, Love will conquer all
but the wicked will dwell in hell."
Soon after his visit to Washington, Changey performed what he
describes as a divine act against evil.
He destroyed a television set and
went out of the house into the back
yard to enjoy the sun.
Police came, took him from his
home where he lives with his sister,
and placed him in an Ohio state
mental hospital.
Changey says that he is a schizophrenic with feelings of persecution. He adds that this is true of almost everyone in our society. He
says that neither he nor his Father
minded the hospital.
"Today, I am happy to say that I
can think of a woman with an open
mind. I do not think of her as lust
any more. My Father, God, has
made my life complete. I neither
smoke nor drink."
Changey, as he works at his lathe
in an Ohio factory, is often visited
by the souls of those who have recently died. Those he has written of
since becoming God's son in 1942
sometimes occupy his body.
They are there to be welcomed by
God's son before they make the final journey to his Father's judgment.
"Friday, as my Father and I
worked at Our job, We heard the
tragic, unbelievable news of President Kennedy's death. My Father
sadly exclaimed: 'We have been set
back one hundred years!"
"Saturday, I was fully aware of
the president's existence with Us,
i.e., his spirit. . . John often keeps
calling for Jackie. My Father explains to me, she is all he turns to.
"This Sunday, John asked three
or four times to pray for Jackie.
Perhaps I was a little perplexed with
the frequent inquisition,   but my
Father each time asked me to
oblige.
"I went to my room, kneeled beside my bed, and John prayed for
Jackie and the children. Unfortunately I can't recall his words, but he
spoke with great eloquence.
"I've never heard a man with
such a great devotion to his wife
and children."
Changey wrote a letter to New
York archbishop Fulton Sheen giving the above account of Kennedy's
activities after death. In due time,
Sheen himself was acquainted with
what it was like to be Eugene Changey-
"As we continued with our work,
(Sheen) asked: 'Can't I stay with
you?'
"I replied with the same answer
to this question that former president John F. Kennedy asked. (His
spirit was also in my body many
years ago.) 'That is up to my
Father.'
"Incidentally, Reverend Martin
Luther King's spirit was also in My
body for a short time after his
death. I only remember a few of his
words, which were: 'Mmmmm,
here I am in a white man's body.
Mmmmm.' He repeated the words
over and over, then he was gone.
"Perhaps Reverend King did not
understand the capability of God.
"Back to Our story. Reverence
Sheen said: 'I like your work, Son.'
"Reverence Sheen seemed to be
enjoying himself as he assisted in
moving the levers of the intricate
machine.
" 'It's exhilarating to be in another man's body!' the bishop exclaimed.
"As the machine is running, I
rapidly write these notes while taking a cut."
Changey has never received
money for his efforts as a messenger
of God's love and indeed continually exhausts what means he has in
order to communicate that love to
the world. He stoically endures the
period of time he spends in hospital
and returns to begin again his work
of bringing God's existence to the
attention of humanity.
He has sent his letters and books
out from his sister's house in Ohio
for 40 years and will probably continue until the work of Jesus' second life on earth is done. But no
matter what he is doing, with his
Father's help he will never be alone.
"Do me a favor and don't pay
any attention to him," Changey's
sister told The Ubyssey. "He's had
a mental problem."
"He writes letters to everybody
just to pass the time," she said on
the telephone from Ohio. She added Changey has been hospitalized
once again. She shared the hope of
the interviewer that he would soon
be released and be able to return to
his job.
' 'No w My Holy Spirit will sho wer
upon the righteous Love, Peace and
Understanding, as My Holy Voice
fades in the distance. Because My
Holy Name is void of form, only
my beloved Son will sign His Name.
May the Lanterns of Love be
always lit in Our Hearts for you."
Lucifer:
Your letter smells of evil - just as you and your servants. On
the day you inherit My Throne, all of heaven and hell will be
engulfed in the fury of the atmosphere!
I vomit at your discretion that you should challenge your
Maker. Be not behooved by Saints in desire to lust, but
adhere to My ways which will never alter so long as the earth
and sky remain.
As Almighty God, I have dictated this letter to you through
My blessed Son, who believes in Me and I in Him shower
upon you the coals which are justly thine.
My holy name will never appear on paper - which is true to
Form. My humble Son will sign this letter to alter fear of
destruction.

A short time before The Day
Most Almighty, Omniscient, Omnipotent, and Puissant Living God:
Your letter to my obedient servants has been turned over to
me, in fear and trembling.
I wish to remind you that you ... I am sorry I forget my
manners . . . that You are not honoring the solemn Contract
which We signed in the graciousness of the Spirit. The 1,000
years of my rule has not yet ended.
Until that time, I must ask that You do not attempt to
seduce my oath-bound servants to the Paths of
Righteousness. Otherwise, I shall be forced to unseal the Vials
.  . . and You know what that means!
I do not need to request that You burn this letter. It will
burn itself in due time.
Nor do I fear to sign my True Name, as You evidently do.

THE    UBYSSEY

PANGO-PANGO (UNS) — Today an international scandal was
uncovered when it was learned that
the international news agencies
have cooperated in covering up the
outbreak of war between the tiny
Pacific republic of Pango Pango
and its neighbor Bora Bora.
The clash began last week after
the Pango Pango government was
overthrown in a coup by general
Iwanta Nukem. The newly installed
Pacific Pacifiers Party immediately
annexed Bora Bora, and as a show
of solidarity sent military aid and
advisors. "Just like Uncle Sam,"
remarked Pango Pango vice-
president Waris Goodfun.
However, the Bora Borans have
refused to recognize forced unification with Pango Pango, and have
activated for their defence the until
now secret Monopolistic Military
Machine for the Protection and
Propogation of Private Profits.
Both soldiers were last seen walking
in the direction of Pango Pango.
"Our force is now completely
nuclearized," explained Bora Bora
defence minister Noneed Forguns.
A United Nations commission
has been established to look into the
alleged news agency coverup.
