Jericho may turn into Vancouver's own Coney Island
The Vancouver Parks Board has ambitious plans for
peaceful Jericho Beach.
Contrary to their attempts at pacifying residents of
the area, city developers have already began large scale
plans for development of the site.
Such plans include the much talked about six-lane
Jericho Road, an offshore island to be used as a wildlife
sanctuary and recreation area, tennis courts, an ice arena,
cultural centre, additional picnic grounds and an
amusement park complete with rides, games and exhibits.
Information on proposed developments was supplied
by Ted and Betty Delmonico, two area residents who fear
losing their home to future city expropriations.
The proposed six-lane road would cut away from the
beach just west of Tolmie street, run through the middle
of the only grocery store in the neighborhood, through
Locarno Park where children skate in the winter and fish
in the summer and connect with Fourth Avenue east of
the old Jericho army barracks.
"This whole proposal is a plan by city developers to
build a much unwanted freeway under the dim disguise of
a scenic drive," Delmonico said.
The old army barracks, recently condemned by city
officials, provide a site for amusement park, ice arena,
tennis courts and a portion of the parkland at Marine and
Tolmie is expected to be rezoned for commercial use.
However, no plans for the park have yet been
submitted for city council approval. Houses along the
4400 block Marine Drive would be torn down, affording a
site for a man-made park, bordering along the present
natural one.
"It all seems so utterly incredible," Delmonico said.
Residents of that block have banded together as the
Spanish Banks Property Owners' Association in hopes of
banning, or at least forestalling, expropriation
SBPOA members have sent innumberable letters of
protest to city council and the parks board, and await
word from council to present their briefs for
Decision will be made at today's council meeting
whether or not the briefs are heard.
Alderman Harry Rankin said yesterday he is certain
area residents will be allowed to submit their briefs, but

Residents have expressed great concern over the
safety of their children having to cross a six-lane roadway,
and the loss of their natural neighborhood parks to
commercially developed community ones.
To thses concerns, Rankin said they will present little
real problem.
"It is impossible to think of trifles when a
multi-million dollar scheme is in the offing," he said.
He said that he did not favor any type of "Coney
Island" developing such as an amusement park, and would
favor a 65-acre park on the old army barracks site instead.
He added he felt a four-lane roadway would be
sufficient, as opposed to the six-lane proposal, and added
that the most important issue of the decade is the
"absolute prohibition of freeways in Vancouver."
However, Mrs. Delmonico suspects there is more to
the development than that.

Vancouver's first provisional city government
was declared Monday at a demonstration of
unemployed and poor people at city hall.
The demonstration was part of a national day
of protest by the poor in Canada, which originated
at the Poor Peoples' Conference held in Ottawa two
weeks ago.
The demonstration attracted about 200 of
Vancouver's unemployed and working poor.
They turned the area outside the mayor's office
on the third floor of city hall into the council
chambers and proceeded to conduct the business of
the provisional government.
"Despite the criticisms of government policies
on welfare and assistance, these policies continue,"
said Alex Bonde, the meeting's chairman.
"We are here to make certain points and do not
claim to represent everybody," Bonde pointed out.
The points to be made were embodied in a
ten-point program for the provisional government.
Among those read out by Bonde were: a
full-time council for Vancouver which would work
SUB closed by orange crate
SUB was closed for four and a half hours Saturday
while a bomb demolition expert drove in from Chilliwack
to open an empty box.
Anatomy prof Vladimir Palaty received an anonymous
phone call at 2:45 p.m. telling him there was a bomb in
He relayed the information to campus RCMP who
cleared the building and began a search for the mysterious
The search turned up only an empty orange box in the
Ubyssey office. The box was taped shut and lined inside
with brown paper.
Ubyssey managing editor Bruce Curtis explained that
the box had been in the office at various times since
Wednesday and has been used by organizers of last week's
Quebec conference to collect donations.
Curtis told police the box had contained someone's bag
lunch the last time he had seen it.
Despite Curtis' explanation, police decided to take no
chances with the volatile orange crate and called in a bomb
demolition expert.
Unfortunately, the nearest bomb demolition squad is
at the Canadian Forces base in Chilliwack, so the building
had to remain closed until the army man arrived.
When he  did, he gingerly opened the box to find
** absolutely nothing and SUB was re-opened at 7:30 p.m.
Ubyssey editor Nate Smith said he first learned of the
bomb scare at 3:30 p.m., when he was phoned at his home
by deputy Alma Mater Society vice-president Dave Manzer.
"Manzer demanded to know the names of all people
who had been in the Ubyssey office Saturday," Smith said.
"I told him I hadn't been to the office Saturday and didn't
know who had been there.
"Manzer replied: 'Look Nate, this is serious I have to
know who was in the office.' "
Smith said he replied, "Look you asshole, I just told
you I haven't been there so how should I know who was."
Smith said Curtis then picked up the phone to explain
what was going on, but Manzer refused to get off the
extension during their conversation..
"I guess Manzer thought Curtis and I were going to
exchange information about the time the bomb was set
for," Smith said.
"When I got to campus I spoke to RCMP corporal
Helmar Hansen, who explained the situation saying he
doubted there was any bomb but didn't want to take a
"Manzer interjected, in his most ominous tone of
voice, that the suspected box had been used to collect
money for Quebec week speakers, including the wife of
jailed union leader Michel Chartrand. Hansen appeared
singularly unimpressed with that bit of intelligence."

council elected by districts; and pollution and rent
Alderman Harry Rankin, who was present at
the meeting, told The Ubyssey "This is an excellent
start on practical proposals and action on these
"Some of the ideas may need variation but can
be implemented."
Some of the proposals which came from the
provisional government were low-cost housing, cash
assistance on welfare and an end to foreign
domination of the economy.
In speaking to the assembly Bonde pointed out,
"It is costing the government more for hostels, food
vouchers and the like than cash assistance would
"The reason it sticks to the former method
rather than give cash assistance is because the
government feels those on welfare are lazy bums
and it wants to make it hard for us."
A member of the provisional council then
proposed that the United Nations Charter on human
rights be adopted by the city as part of a centennial
"We have no charter on human rights and the
right to a decent living," said the woman who
proposed it.
Ray Chouinard from Cool-Aid pointed out that
the meeting was only an initial step in a people's
government for the city.

Quebecois march
QUEBEC CITY (CUP) - Wearing the red, white
and green colors of the 1837 Quebec Rebellion,
over 200 of the 467 Quebecois arrested under the
War Measures Act marched in front of a
well-guarded Quebec national.assembly Sunday.
They were demanding bail for those still in
prison and a rescinding of the one-year contempt of
court sentence handed to labor leader Michel
The demonstrators also wanted a meeting with
Premier Robert Bourassa who lives in the assembly
buildings, but he was not there at the time.
The demonstrators sang the Internationale and
carried placards denouncing the judicial procedures
coming out of the Front de Liberation du Quebec
kidnappings. Some of the demonstrators carried
signs around their necks with the names of those
still in prison under the Public Order Act. Page 2

'Apoplectic B & B report
belies Canadian reality'
We must overcome the tendency to focus
totally on the explosion of the 70's — the death of
Laporte, historian Stanley Ryerson said Friday.
"We must not be distracted from the basic
question — the relationship between what the B & B
(Biculturalism and Bilingualism) report calls the
'two societies in Canada'," said Ryerson, author of
Unequal Union and The Founding of Canada.
He said the new set of beliefs about Canada
implicit in the B & B report had the kind of
reasoning that led to the logical consequences of the
events in Quebec.
"The B & B commission is an apoplectic
approach to understanding the gravest crisis this
country has ever known," Ryerson told some 500
people in the SUB ballrooom.
The idea that to understand Canada it must be
seen as a duality, led to the colonization of French
Canada under an imperial metropolis as the central
government, he said.
"This engendered a state which has had built
into it a character of ambiguity and equivocation,"
said Ryerson.
Ryerson referred to a statement made by John
A. Macdonald, the first Canadian prime minister:
"British lower Canada, you can never forget that
you were once supreme. You struggle not for
equality but for ascendency; but you have not the
honesty to admit it."
"If we had followed Macdonald's advice: 'treat
them as a nation and they will act as a free people
generally do — generously,' we may not have been
confronted with our present situation," said
"The storm signals of the October crisis were a
nightmare that couldn't be ignored by those who
are committed to the status quo, not to the BNA
(British North American Act)," said Ryerson.
He said the apprehension of this coming
together of the nationalists as an insurrection was a
"In the same way the image of Trudeau as the
St. George who rose to slay the dragon in the streets
of Montreal was a fiction."
This "escape from reality" allowed the leaders
of our country to ignore questions like the
detrimental effect of American economic expansion
on the Quebecois, he said.
"In the face of American economic expansion,
some may say we must defend the status quo, but in
reality the status quo has allowed a colossal
takeover by America," said Ryerson.
"This escape from reality is the only way the
government can accept the study of French social
and economic inferiority and the shock at the
recognition of colonialism and oppression in our
country," he said.
Ryerson enumerated the economic and social
reasons for the coming into awareness of a majority
in Quebec who are not content with the built-in
structural inequality.
"Time is something that bleeds. The
discontented are no longer just the separatists (13
per cent of Quebec's population) but the
nationalists, the trade unionists, the majority," said
The B & B commission, in Volume III of their
report on the French Canadian workers showed that
since 1931 the advantaged position has doubled, he
"This is what happens in Quebec! — la belle
province!" said Ryerson.
Also in the B & B report, in a list of 14 ethnic
origins   in    the
Quebec    labour
force,    French
Canadians  were
second from the
bottom, he said.
He  said that
in     1967     the
national income
was $5,000 and
73  per  cent of
Quebec families
were     earning
less      than
$4,000;     that
there is 40 per
cent  unemployment     among
French    Canadians; and  that    Stanley  Ryerson - 'time bleeds'
there is six times the chance of an infant dying if he
commits the error of being born French, instead of
He concluded his talk with a quote: "no nation
can be expected to obey another for the very simple
reason that no nation could command another
Asked about the quality of Montreal publisher
Claude Ryan's prediction that the Parti Quebecois
would secure a majority in the next 10 to 30 years,
Ryerson said the unpredictability of politics is like
that of horse-racing but said he would approximate
15 years.
He said "I don't think speculation on the
timetable is as fruitful as reflection on those things
that will affect the timetable."
When asked about the confusing convictions of
those being tried under the War Measures Act and
the Criminal Code he answered, "it is just that
confusion which is part of the success of Operation
In answer to questions about the reality of the
insurrection he referred to the statements of Louis
Laberge, head of the Quebec Federation of Labor.
"Laberge said if there was going to be a
revolution you would see all the plants closed and
workers on the street. It is a total fiction, complete
with identity cards and finger prints, all with a
devastating political aim."
Low income moved to the rear
in unemployment demonstration
VICTORIA (Staff) - Elaine Olszewski,
vice-president of the Victoria Low Income Group
has charged that Ray Haynes, secretary of the B.C.
Federation of Labor, destroyed the unity of the
unemployed peoples' demonstration in front of the
B.C. legislature Thursday.
Olszewski condemned what she called
"strong-arm tactics" on the part of Haynes outside
the Crystal Gardens where the demonstrators were
marshalling for the march to the parliament
"Haynes pulled a power play to give   labor
complete control of the demonstration," she said.
"When we were lining up for the march, Haynes
grabbed me by the arm and said, 'you and your
group get back in there with your signs. We
organized this thing and you're not going to disrupt
it'," Olszewski said.
Olszewski was upset by this, because the low
income group had planned to demonstrate since last
The low income group had a right to march at
the front of the line, she said, because they had
done as much planning as any one else. In fact, it
was the low income group which asked the B.C. Fed
to participate in the demonstration.
Federation members attempted to push the low
income group to the back of the line but only
succeeded in hiding some of the placards with
Federation banners.
At the rally in front of the Legislature
buildings, the low income group was denied the
right to speak, along with the Unemployed Citizens
Improvement Council representatives.
The low income group's participation was part
of a nation-wide demonstration against poverty
planned by the National Conference of Poor People
in Toronto last December.
Observers say there has been a great amount of
animosity created as a result of Haynes' power plays
The low income group intends to make a
formal protest to the B.C. Fed.

U of T students vote on striking
TORONTO (CUP) - University of Toronto arts and
science students jammed the polling stations Monday in
the first day of a two-day strike referendum.
The students are deciding whether or not to back up
demands for student parity with teaching staff in the
governing faculty council.
A record turnout is expected in the vote in which
more than 13,000 students are eligible. In November a
referendum on the principle of parity was supported by
88.5 per cent of the approximately 6,000 students who
A "yes" vote in the referendum would mean a three
day strike including a voluntary boycott of classes by
both students and teaching staff. The strike would then be
re-assessed at a mass meeting Friday.
Almost one hundred sympathetic faculty members
have signed a petition supporting the boycott of classes.
Following a faculty meeting last Friday history prof
Michael Cross, who is also dean of men at Victoria
College, reported the group's support for student action
"whatever that action might be."
"We did not feel it was our place to tell or advise you
(students) on what action to take. We will support you on
individual conscience."
U of T administration president Claude Bissell has
still refused to commit himself to any interference in what
he calls an internal matter of the faculty of arts and
Sid Smith Hall, which was converted into a student
centre last week, continues to be the focus for strike
activity, with an educational festival continuing day and
night. A rock group appeared Friday night and a dance
was held on Saturday. Speeches, music, posters and

Women prisoners in Montreal
won't testify in FLQ trials
MONTREAL (CUP) - Seven inmates of
Montreal's women's prison have announced they
will refuse to testify in the "fabricated" trials arising
from the kidnapping and death of Pierre Laporte.
The women also mandated jailed lawyer Robert
Lemieux to represent them.
In a statement addressed "to whom it may
concern" the seven women — Lise Balcer, Francine
Belisle, Denise and Helene Quesnel, Lise Rose,
Louise VeTrault and Colette Therrien - said:
"We the undersigned political prisoners
formally mandate Robert Lemieux as our one and
only lawyer in our cause.
"We also take this occasion to denounce the
hypocritical attitude of the bar for refusing to take
a position with regard to this problem.
"He is to us as we to him.
"We will conquer."
The women who mandated Lemieux say their
gesture carries a double political signficance. They
are not refusing to testify because they are worried
about incriminating themselves, but want to
underline their refusals to collaborate with
"injustice." They also want to let their action serve
as an example for other political prisoners.
Lemieux has been in prison since Oct. 16. To
date the courts have refused him bail, making it
difficult if not impossible to act on his clients'
There has also been a move on the part of some
lawyers to have Lemieux de-barred. The excuse they
are using is a remark Lemieux made last fall when
he was leaving the court where he was defending
Front de Liberation du Quebec members. At that
time he made a reference to the trial being a farce.
Williston considers
frat row hotel plan
Any high, rise development on frat row would have to provide
space for UBC hospital out-patients, says provincial lands and forests
minister Ray Williston.
In a letter to the Vancouver Park Board, Williston said the Socred
government has been considering a developer's proposal for a hotel and
convention centre on land now occupied by three UBC fraternities.
"Any proposed high-rise development on lands owned by
fraternities would be encouraged only on the basis that living
accommodation would be made available for out-patients requiring the
service of the university hospital," the letter read.
Williston rejected the board's request for a meeting to discuss the
proposal. The park board is concerned that enough open space will be
provided in the future development of the University Endowment
The board was not satisfied with the letter and voted Monday to
again request a meeting with Williston to discuss the development.
"If the government is considering spot zoning of the Endowment
Lands without an overall plan they're foolish and I think we should be
in on it," said park commissioner George Puil.
Meanwhile, a representative of the developers said Thursday that
bad publicity on campus may have delayed plans for the construction
of the hotel.
"We're worried about the bad publicity," said James Smith of J.
E. Smith Realty, Ltd.
Smith said he has not been able to get in touch with the
fraternities' alumni because they are also worried about the bad
"Money is available anytime we want to go ahead. The project is
not dead."
George Peter of Phi Delta Theta's alumni said Monday, "We've
had no problems of communications.
"Our directors expressed a willingness last October to sell the
frathouse," he said.
Beta Theta Pi alumni spokesman Keith Liddle said, "We haven't
seen Smith for several months."
Liddle said the fraternity alumni have been approached by
another developer.
"I couldn't given you his name without his approval. It might
scare him off."
Administration president Walter Gage's office has been exploring
the possibility of incorporating the Endowment Lands.
Gage has established a president's ad hoc committee on the
development of university Endowment Lands.
"This committee is the result of a conversation between Dean
Gage and Ray Williston, provincial Minister of Lands, Forests and
Recreation," said commerce dean Philip White, chairman of the
"We weren't set up to look into the question of the hotel
development on frat row," White said.
Gov't looks abroad
The Immigration Department is advertising extensively in
England and Europe for skilled people to come to Canada.
S. R. Purdy, Canada Manpower's Vancouver manager said,
"Our policy is based on job requirement predictions for six
months to a year in advance."
They are presently seeking graduates in the professional
fields, notably engineering, draughting and architecture.
"We give the Immigration Department job forecasts on a
monthly basis based on current information. It is up to them
what they do with this information," Purdy said.
Purdy repeated immigration minister Otto Lang's statement
that "by bringing in skilled people we are creating more jobs
because these people will need houses built and food to eat."
When asked if the immigrants are taking jobs from
Canadians, Purdy said, "We are doing all we can for our own
"When there is a job available we refer both immigrants and
our own graduates to the company and they usually pick the one
with the highest qualifications."
When the immigrants arrive in Canada, they are given
assistance by Manpower and the Immigration Department until
they can find a job.
"Our own graduates can get the same help from the city
welfare department," Purdy said. Page 4

The invasion
The province of B.C. has a new incident to keep
political mouths churning and fill space around the ads
in the commercial press for many weeks to come.
We refer to the invasion of the legislature Thursday
by some members of the B.C. Federation of Labor's
unemployment demonstration.
Obviously, those who go to Victoria to represent
the people of B.C. can't cope with a number of said
people entering their hallowed domain.
What did the demonstrators interrupt when they
burst in during the throne speech? They interrupted a
man dressed like something out of a Gilbert and Sullivan
musical reading a collection of Socred platitudes to an
audience of MLAs and some of the province's more
wealthy and powerful citizens.
The top hats, the pageantry and the 21-gun salutes
were all there, but no one in the legislature mentioned
the rising unemployment, widespread poverty,
overcrowded schools,, inadequate health care and
insufficient housing in the province they are supposed
to be governing.
The people of the province, of course, were not
allowed inside for the throne speech because the public
gallery was full of corporation presidents and assorted
other power-brokers.
The throne speech marked the opening of another
legislative session full of parliamentary games and
Socred disregard for the problems of B.C.
The demonstrators invaded the hallowed halls of
legislature and gave the inmates a brief introduction to
reality. But, as we all know, there is a time and place for
reality — and a provincial legislative session is not it.
The people don't belong-in the legislature. That's
Mr. Bennett's gilded playpen.
The bomb scare
The only time we begin to think kind thoughts
about AMS executives is when we are forced to deal
with some of the committee members, executive
assistants, flunkies and groupies who surround those
AMS executives.
For some reason, one such individual was the
major AMS presence during Saturday's comic-opera
bomb scare.
During his brief moment in the sun,he managed to
shatter most existing AMS records for arrogance,
belligerence and general lack of common sense.
Such behavior is intolerable enough in people who
know what's going on, but it becomes totally absurd in
someone who plainly doesn't have the faintest idea what
he's doing.
If AMS executives insist on surrounding themselves
with entourages of such bum-boys, perhaps a less
troublesome outlet could be found for their
We're sure the AMS budget could afford a few
teddy bears and soothers.

'Who gave you the right to come to Victoria and spoil OUR  party?"
Editor, The Ubyssey, Sir:
This is in reply to the criticisms
released by Mr. Steve McField in
his article "International House,
Colonial Relic". (Friday, Jan. 22).
Mr. McField says "the
directions that International
House has followed are an insult
to the needs of the international
community". International House
is not and should not be regarded
as the big white God, baby sitter
or protector for the overseas
student on campus. Who or what
comprises International House but
the overseas student (Mr
McField included) and his
Canadian counterparts and the
programmes they implement. It
appears then that it is Mr. McField
who has not lost his colonial
mentality in wanting I.H. to
program his life.
We must also commend him pn
his cute awareness of the
happenings at I.H. He talks of the
program and service committee.
There is no such committee. The
committee to which he is referring
is The International Students
Program committee comprising
of, and open to all students
(Overseas and Canadian). This
committee is responsible for
programs at I.H. In addition, the
individual overseas clubs
independently present any
activity that interests them. Yes,
there is going to be an
International Ball and pub-ins are
being held. In that respect, may we
extend our greetings to the other
"colonials" on campus. It is
equally true that academically
some of the overseas students give
seminars and participate in
academic discussions concerning
their various countries. The input
from here would seem to be more
current    than     textbooks.    The
theme for this year's International
Week Feb. 8-13 is International
Scene Development and Change.
The purpose of this week is
obvious. We hope that Mr.
McField will be participating in
the International Week program.
The views presented by Mr.
McField are not new to I.H. Mr.
McField excels in finding fault but
not in taking action. He knows
nevertheless that he is welcome to
join the International Students
Program Committee and by so
doing implement constructive
ideas into positive action,
thereby putting into practice his
own feelings that "only
meaningful action can be looked
upon with respect."

The Editor, The Ubyssey, Sir:
As one of the supposedly
reluctant overseas students who is
"afraid of recrimination" and
wouldn't "say anything for
publication", I must reluctantly
join in the controversy over your
coverage or the lack of it of the
so-called third world problem. If
your coverage of the Biafra
moratorium movement is typical
of your treatment of the third
world problem as you implied, no
wonder overseas students are
reluctant to contribute to your
Your lack of interest and/or
objectivity and the fact that most
UBC students are only interested
in the "petty mundanities of
living" as we thought all along,
make it impossible for me and I
am sure most of my friends to
subject ourselves to the indignity
of allowing you to sit in
judgement of the suitability of
anything we may care to write.
We    did   once    and   wished   we
Finally, wouldn't it be more
correct to suggest that some
overseas students are afraid of
recrimination from the Canadian

Agency (CIDA), the people who
brought them here, rather than
their     national    governments?

Editor, The Ubyssey, Sir:
The un-named (what is he
afraid of?) author of "Love in the
OR part H" (Friday Jan. 22)
refers to his readers as "sick
perverts" in asking them to fill in
a blank.
We do not wish to be referred
to as sick perverts, thank-you very
much. This expression should be
reserved for persons such as the
author of this unmitigated smut.
We cannot think of "Love in
the OR" as anything other than
revolting smut for the sake of
nothing other than revolting smut.
It serves no purpose whatsoever,
other than, perhaps, to vent the
author's own sexual perversions
and frustrations. The Ubyssey is
NOT the proper forum for the
venting of the inadequacies of
such pathetic creatures.
We are quite disgusted with,
and   thoroughly   disappointed in
The Ubyssey for allowing itself to
be degraded to such an extent.

What about our image?
George Volkoff, the head of UBC's physics
department, was extremely distressed the other day
when the UBC senate was asked to approve a
Canadian-content in-courses resolution.
If passed (of course senate tabled it) the
resolution would have "encouraged faculty to
include significant Canadian content where it is
appropriate to fulfill the objective of the course."
A laudable if limited step it would have been,
too, in a university where too often the Canadian
situation is de-emphasized and texts using only
American examples are used. But George was
What troubled George was the university's
image. "We don't," he intoned, "want the
implication that we are starting something we
haven't done before."
In other words, if we pass this resolution it'll
look like we haven't been telling our students
anything about what for most of them is their
native country. And that, in this time of Robin
Mathews and Mel Watkins, would be very bad
George's logic is fascinating. Extending
Volkoff s Law of Public Relations to other areas of
endeavor at UBC, we can visualize some of the
following situations:
The university will not embark this year on its
annual fund-rainsing campaign among B.C.
businessmen. To do so would imply that the
university isn't getting the money it needs from the
provincial government, and therefore isn't giving us
a very good education. A monstrous thought.
The entire athletic program at UBC will be
cancelled. How dare anyone, by continuing to
provide facilities such as tracks and swimming pools,
suggest that students are not in peak condition?
The   physics   department   —   and   all   other
departments for that matter —will hire no more
faculty as long as the university is in existence. We
can* t have the public thinking their kids have been
going to an understaffed university.
No more buildings will be constructed at UBC,
because this would imply that we don't have
enough space as it is. Food services will stop
proclaiming its intentions to improve the quality of
food, the bookstore will order no more books and
the library will stop expanding. Any other course of
action would give the impression that all is not well
with these services.
Of course, Volkoff s Law has its brighter side
Rumors that Leon Ladner plans to donate a
100-foot statue of Walter Gage to complement his
bell tower can be squelched once and for all.
Building such a monument would imply that a need
existed for it which had gone unfilled for 50 years —
a disgraceful case of neglect.
Exams will be abolished, because they give the
uneasy feeling that the university is an impersonal
institution where professors can't judge student's
progress on the basis of personal knowledge.
The board of governors will be abolished
because its existence leads to unhealthy speculatior
that the university is controlled by the provinces
business elite.
And, naturally, UBC publii Relations man Jim
Banham and his coven of sidemen will be forced to
earn their keep elsewhere, because we can't make
out like the univeristy needs to improve its image.
We would look forward with drooling lips to
the belated adoption of Volkoffs Law as the
guiding principle of decision-making in the senate.
Trouble, is, this is impossible.
If d look like senate had been dragging its feet
The hundred year itch
You can keep your bobsled races, skydiving
contests, Grey Cup games and AMS elections. For
me, there's nothing so exciting as a centennial (or
centenary, or whatever.)
Who can say precisely which aspect of
centennials is the most enthralling? Is it the simple
pleasure of one-upsmanship over all those people
who aren't part of something that has been around
for a hundred years? It is the thrill of playing
"lefs-waste-our money"? Or is it just the
exuberance of making an ass of oneself and having
an "official" excuse for it? The answer, of course, is
that it's all these and more.
Personally, I feel it is the planning of projects
which offers the greatest enjoyment to most people.
A partial list of B.C. centennial projects will attest
to this:
Spuzzum is going to build an outhouse, and
rumor has it that it will be even bigger than the
other one.
The Primrose Conservative League is going to
surround the Parliament Buildings in Victoria with
primroses — the best  that money can buy. The
ceremony will be officiated by top cabinet ministers
— the best that money can buy.
The Big Cheese is going to learn to count to
The AMS is going to try for 10 (by two's).
The real Walter Gage will stand up. (And sit
down again.)
Robin Harger will plant 100 shrubs - and get
Davies will put 100 feet in his mouth.
Tom Campbell is going to send 100 postcards
from Hawaii.
The police department is going to buy 100
psychedelic riot sticks.
The Engineering Undergraduate Society is going
to aim for an average IQ of room temperature.
(Well, they're getting warm.)
Food Services is going to try for a new low of
100 cases of ptomaine poisoning.
The UBC Thunderbirds are going to try for a
100 per cent win-loss record.
One hundred students are going to get lost and
die of starvation in the library stacks.
Head librarian Basil Stuart-Stubbs is going to
try to join them.
The B.C. Ferry Authority is going to take apart
and put together 100 ferries.
One hundred fairies are going to take apart and
put together Horseshoe Bay. (Nobody will notice.)
AMS external affairs officer John
Scott-Mitchell will model 100 new fashions. And
the girls will buy them all.
The AMS will revise the constitution 100 times.
And nobody will buy it.
The entire Ubyssey staff will be drunk and/or
stoned 100 times. (We're cutting down.)
One hundred people will read my column. Or
they won't get paid.

Bennett fiddles as B.C. chokes
VICTORIA (Staff) - Premier W. A. C. Bennett read a
newspaper Monday afternoon as opposition leader Dave
Barrett opened the throne speech debate by centering on
the exploitation of B.C. by the major primary resource
With the assistance of visual aids in the form of a
poster-size map of B.C. with a series of plastic overlays,
Barrett proceeded to outline in detail every major area of
exploitation and descration in the province.

existing controls on rent and eviction proceedings. He was
contradicted by some present who claimed that the
controls sometimes meant nothing.
"Landlords must justify rent increases," said Rankin.

One Economics 200 class Monday learned the
unsurprising maxim that time is money.
"The major cost of going to university is that you're
foregoing the wages you'd have in a job," visiting
instructor Michael Lazur told 45 people in Angus 407.
"The cost of going to university is not mainly room,
board and tuition," he said.
Seen in this light, the cost of attending UBC is less in
times when jobs are scarce.
Lazur was discussing "implicit costs" which he said
could be measured by "opportunity costs." To guage the
opportunity costs of attending UBC, the student should
consider how much money he or she is, in effect, losing
by not working at an alternative occupation.
If a student thinks attending UBC is more pleasant
than working, then the "psychic pain" of enduring a job
can also be taken into account when measuring the
opportunity cost of going to university, Lazur said.
Major emphasis was given to the Kaiser Coal
Barrett charged the government had made an appeal
to the federal government to allow the shipment of B.C.
coal to Japan through American railway systems, thus
cutting off a large number of jobs presently taken by
Canadian railway workers.
Barrett also attacked Socred Policies on pollution.
"I challenge the minister of recreation to go on a
daily diet of Buttle Lake water," he said, in response to
Ken Kiernan's claim that he would drink a glass of water
from the surface of Buttle Lake any day.
He continued to list lake after lake that, like Buttle,
had been a victim of industrial pollution, sanctioned by
the Pollution Control Board.
"Unless this government gets British Columbia
moving again we may be faced with the same problem
they have in the United States," he said.
"What's the use of all this development if the people's
health is being endangered," he demanded.
"We intend to lay before this house alternative ways
of developing this province."
Liberal leader Pat McGeer attacked the pollution
issue right off:
"Everybody talks about pollution these days, even
the government. But that's all they're doing, just talking."
He outlined the major centers of pollution in the
province but said he was dismayed to inform the
legislature of the problem of pollution in municipal water
Even these are being polluted, he said.
McGeer outlined the pollution of the Naramata water
systems in graphic detail, by circulating around the house
pictures of cattle preparing to defecate into the Naramata
water systems.
Naramata ia a small town near Penticton.
"Our values are so warped and twisted that we would
rather destroy a water supply with cattle feces, rather
than upset the production of some beef which turns
money back to the provincial treasury" he said.
McGeer went on to object to the pre-release of the
throne speech to the press.
"I'm not blaming the members of the fourth estate
(that's us). It is their job to go out and get as much as
they can from those who are willing to talk."
McGeer was upset that before the throne speech was
delivered by Lieutenant-Governor Nicholson, the
Vancouver Sun carried both a story and an interpretation
of the speech.
McGeer urged that in future the throne speech not be
released until it is delivered by the lieutenant-governor in
order to "guarantee a dignified presentation."
McGeer said he was pleased to see mention of
electoral reform in the throne speech.
"My vote (in the legislature) can be cancelled by a
man who received one-quarter as many votes as I did," he
said in support of his demands for redistribution and
other reforms.
He also said he wanted to see the return of the
preferential ballot, whereby each elected member
represents at least fifty per cent of his electorate.
(Presently, a member can theoretically be elected to
the house with less than 30 per cent of the popular vote.)
He said the preferential ballot was thrown out by
Bennett in 1952 because it was "too complicated"
"It wasn't too complicated to elect him, but it was
too compicated to keep him," he said.
In Ec 200 time is money
The same sort of reasoning applies when a person
keeps money in a mattress rather than putting it in a bank
and gaining interest, he said.
While a couple of young entrepreneurs at the back of
the room discussed trading used skiis, Lazur talked about
implicit costs that should be considered when buying or
investing in a business.
The students then learned about some of the basic
considerations when buying a factory.
Lazur used the example of a factory which is owned
and managed by the same person. He said that in
considering the costs of the factory, and how much of a
return the buyer expects on his money, implicit costs
must be taken into account, such as the salary of the
This person's salary would probably not have
appeared on the books while the manager was also owner,
Lazur said, so an estimated salary would have to be
deducted from the established net profit before the buyer
would have an accurante picture of how much money he
could expect to make.
"The economist's definition of cost differs from that
of the businessman and accountant because it includes
implicit costs," Lazur said.
Implicit costs don't represent market transactions and
are therefore measured by opportunity costs, he said.
Lazur also touched briefly on consumers' and
producers' surpluses, and taxes in the lecture.
He spoke clearly, and explained his points well. If the
lecture was not an exciting experience it is more due to
the nature of Economics 200 than to any shortcoming on
Lazur's part.
Two students raised questions during the class, and
Lazur asked once if people had any queries on the lecture
On the whole, lecture approach was casual, and he
seemed receptive to questions.
The class takes place Monday, Wednesday and
Thursday at 2:30 in Buchanan 407.

Constitution Revisions
What they mean ....
In the summer of 1969 an opinion survey was
undertaken by the Alma Mater Society in order to
define or redefine the purpose and direction of the
Alma Mater Society. In analysis, a number of
problems were identified, which affect the AMS'
ability to achieve results. These include:
1. A  bureaucratic  structure  which  does  not
appear to be useful in creating action.
2. A lack of rapport with the student body.
The existing organization is such as to justify the
students complaints of an ill-defined reporting
relationship, a lack of definition of responsibility and
general overall ineffectiveness. Along similar lines, the
administrative organization is not set up to
implement policies.
The Constitution Revisions are presented as part
of the solution to these problems. (The total solution
involves people, ideas, projects as well as structural

indicated at least one choice. Each
candidate shall be credited with the
number of first choices marked opposite
his name. The candidate who receives

counted in favor of the candidate
next subsequent in choice to the
candidate whose name has been
struck off.
Where by reason of choices of
voters and by distribution of votes
as aforesaid a tie results between
two or more candidates then the
Elections Committee shall
determine in such manner as it
deems fit which of, and in what
order, such candidates shall be
struck off the list.

Black boycott of Polaroid
stops sales in S. Africa
(CUP-CPS) - Polaroid
Corporation, one of several
hundred American corporations
operating in the Union of South
Africa, announced on Jan. 12
cessation of sales to the
government of South Africa.
The move was apparently in
response to pressure from an
economic boycott first initiated
by the Polaroid Revolutionary
Workers Movement, a group of
black employees of the company.
The Polaroid Corporation also
announced last week that it won't
sell its identification card
machines to the Quebec
government     without     first
discussing the deal with Prime
Minister Trudeau. The same
machines were used by the
government in South Africa.
Trudeau's representative in
Quebec, Robert Bourassa is now
considering the best way to
establish an identification card
system for all residents of Quebec
as an anti-terrorist measure. If the
plan goes ahead, Polaroid will
probably supply the machines.
In the U.S. PRWM organizers
Caroline Hunter and Ken Williams
announced an expansion of the
boycott. They said the boycott
would continue until Polaroid
pulls out of South Africa as an

Recycling project at UBC
For the past four months, there has been a group of people on
campus carrying out a recycling project.
The work is being done under the auspices of the University
Endowment Lands Recycling Project
Recycling is the reusing of suitable used materials. For example,
newspapers can be pulped down and used again as newspaper or
construction paper.
Lynn Vickson, one of the founding members of this project, said,
"Recycling has three aims: to reduce the area used for garbage dumps,
'to save natural resources, and to cut down on the pollution from the
manufacturing plants."
The recycling group will be taken over by a group called Joshua,
which is a bigger and more comprehensive one, said Vickson.
At present, there are deposit centres for used newspapers, glass
objects and rags at Acadia Apartments for married students, in the
basement of Union College, and in various other places on campus.
At designated times, members of the recycling group rent a truck
and take the newspapers to Excelsion Paper Stock Company, which sell
them to a recycling company to be pulped.
The group hopes to set up deposit receptacles in the computer
centres of the different faculties at UBC as welL
"The recycling project can become really effective when we can
use the vast amount of paper from the computer centres," said
"Recycling is a long-range project, which should be taught to the
upcoming generation, just as it was to the generations of the 1930s
Depression. The need for recycling is becoming stronger now, with the
worsening pollution problem," she said.
Tonight at 7:30 on Channel 10, there will be a program on
recycling   called,   UBC   Now,   put

American firms that sell goods
worth almost $600 million per
year in the country.
"South Africa is a police state.
The only way America can affect
it is by withdrawal," Hunter said.
Polaroid vice-president, Tom
Wyman, said the corporation
wouldn't enter into an agreement
with the Quebec government
without first discussing objections
that Trudeau has put forward to
the ID card plan.
Polaroid's ID-2 unit, the
machine used in South Africa,
incorporates computerized
indentification processes that can
reproduce photographs, finger
prints and an identifying number
in two minutes.
South Africa's 16 million
blacks, who comprise 80 per cent
of the population, are required by
law to carry the identification
passports at all times or face a fine

U.S. sees book first
OTTAWA (CUP) - An English translation of Pierre
Vallieres' book White Niggers of America will be on sale in the
United States about 10 weeks before it is published in Canada.
The book, a lengthy autobiography and analysis of the
position of the Quebecois oppression, has formed the basis of
government criminal charges that have kept Vallieres' in jail the
past three years.
A spokesman for Monthly Review in New York, a Marxist
publishing house, said the American edition of the book will
appear at the end of January or the first week in February.
Monthly Review sold Canadian publishing rights to
McClelland and Stewart of Toronto because, the spokesman said:
"It is the usual custom to license a book in countries where we
have no distribution apparatus."
A McClelland and Stewart public relations spokesman said
Wednesday that a tentative publishing date has been set for the
Canadian edition in April.
John Newlove will be the Canadian editor.
Monthly Review has held publishing rights for the English
translation for over two years and their spokesman said the delay
in publishing was caused by the difficulty of translating the
lengthy book.
Editions of the book in its original French that have been
allowed in Canada, have been severely censored.
Perhaps it is not coincidence that the route taken by
Vallieres' book describes once again the relationship of Canada to
the U.S. — a colony — and that of Quebec to Canada— a colony
within a colony.

Puddles and pot holes
The series of mud puddles and pot holes that
the Highways Department calls the Sixteenth
Avenue extension is not due for any improvement.
"Any improvement wouldn't be until late
spring, at least," district highways engineer W. M. A.
Baker said Monday.
"We've been looking around for some gravel
and if we can find some, we'll bring it over there,"
he said.
Many students have been using the road to
avoid congestion on University Boulevard and
Chancellor Boulevard and it has become the scene
of many small accidents.
"We don't know what the university will look
like in five or ten years so we don't want to spend
money on something that might be unnecessary,"
Baker said.
The Sixteenth Avenue extension was built while
clearing the bush and does not follow engineering
"If we decide to build the road up, we will first
have to decide whether to use the present road or
change it to fit the engineers' plans," Baker said.
"We just maintain roads, we don't build them,"
he said. "It's up to Victoria to make the decisions."
It all adds up to: drive at your own risk.

I had been in Viet Nam for about one month
when 1 suddenly became the battalion's intelligence
The old assistant was going home in two weeks
and they decided it was time to get a new one and
break him in to the work. I had just taken out a
correspondence course in intelligence for something
to do and so they picked me.
I had just come off a three day watch on top of
the hill and hadn't shaved or polished my boots in
the last week, but they sent me up to see the
sergeant-major just the way I was.
Needless to say, the sergeant-major was a little
upset at the way I looked, but I explained that I had
just come off the hill, and besides, his approval was
nothing more than a formality, so all he could do
was say he hoped I would like the job and to shave
and polish my boots as soon as I got back to my
My main job as intelligence assistance, for the
first while at least, was to stand watch in the COC,
the Combat Operations Center. This didn't mean
much more than answering the phone and typing
entries into the log book.
The COC was a fun place to be. It was sort of
like watching an old war movie where they show the
war room and people are moving little boats and
planes around on a big map, but the Viet Nam war
movie hardly ever made any sense.
They had picked two others to share watches
with me, Bush and Seeley. Bush was a woodsman
from Oregon and Seeley was a professional student
from Baltimore who had finally been caught by the
draft. Seeley's hobby was collecting butterflies, and
he was constantly catching them and sending them
home in little coffins.
Three weeks after I started working in
intelligence the battalion went out on Operation
Oklahoma Hills. The plan was that the lieutenant
and we three clerks go out on the operation and the
gunnery sergeant stay back at the base and keep the
work straight.
Four days before we were to leave the sergeant
was walking back from the Officers' Club blind
drunk and fell off the steps of his house. He broke
both wrists and the next day he was on a plane to
Japan where he spent the rest of his overseas tour.
We needed a new intelligence chief. I was
Being an intel chief was even more fun than
working in the COC. I had my own office and my
own telephone and regular nine to five hours. The
only problem was I didn't know what to do with
The day after I started working on my own I
had a sergeant come to me with a problem.
He was supposed to be going home in three
days. The problem was that he was going to be
guarding embassies after he finished his leave and he
needed a security clearance. In fact, he needed the
paperwork for the clearance done before he could
go home. I didn't know what a clearance was, let
alone how to do the paperwork for one.
There were four different forms to be
completed, one in duplicate, two in triplicate and
the other required four copies. There was also two
sets of fingerprints to be filed. The prints were the
easiest part, all we did was call up for my jeep and
drive down to division police headquarters and have
his prints done by the Criminal Investigation
The other forms were something else. The
worst was the personal history one which took me
two days to get right. This was the one that required
four copies, or the original and three carbons. The
form is printed on both sides of a piece of paper
that is about two feet long. It only took me five
tries to get the original on both sides and the carbon
paper in right. After that I discovered that I had
answered half the questions wrong. I finally got all
the papers done and in the mail five hours before
the plane left.
Being an intel chief was fun, but it was also

"City planners are now looking
into the future of rapid transit,"
»   she said.
"When it comes time to build
such transit schemes, the city is
going to need entrance ways to
.. which   the   federal   government
refuses to finance.
"I firmly suspect that the
federal government has given the
city an ultimatum to get these
entranceways before any
financing will be allotted."
She added that such a road at
Jericho would easily facilitate a
western entrance and exit for a
- new first narrows crossing.
She    said    the    road    could
facilitate expansion of UBC, but
added it  would  do   so, "at the
expense of the peace and quiet of
,   the area's residents."
She said SBPOA has offered a
counter-proposal to the present
road scheme, which she said has

City Pays $15 million
The city originally planned to
purchase the federally owned
army site for one dollar, but
*■ recently purchased the area for
$15 million, to which four million
dollars more has to be added for

development can begin.
"It's like city engineers have ,

area between Locarno and
Spanish Banks as a public marine

"Horseshoe Bay and Tswassen

before anothe ferry terminal will
be needed," he said.

Liberal MLA for the area, will be
contacted as soon as possible.
"A lot of homeowners around

-Hoop Birds losers
with prairie split
The   University   of  Manitoba
Bisons  proved   that   their  78-76
victory     over     the     UBC
Thunderbirds two weeks ago was
'   no fluke.
They defeated the Birds 82-70
last Friday night providing all the
proof any WCIAA basketball fan
" might need.
UBC coach Peter Mullins
commented that "they played
well and shot extremely well".
Their shooting percentage of
55 percent (65 percent in the first
half to UBC's 41) could have been
the difference. But it wasn't.
The difference was in
^rebounding, where the game is
often won or lost. Mullins
statement "we got clobbered on
the boards", tells the story. The
Bisons outrebounded the Birds
40-23, 15 of them by Ross
Wedlake and 13 more by Bob
As in their previous game, the
-Bisons combined a tight man to
man defence with a 2-1-2 zone to
reduce  the  effectiveness of Ron
Ted Stoesz led the Bisons with
25 points, Wedlake added 20, and
Angus Burr, who had 36 in the
previous encounter, was held to
^only 11 by Thorsen.
Center Terry MacKay led the
Birds with 22 points and nine
rebounds while forward Jack Hoy
chipped in 20 points.
Saturday night the Birds
defeated Winnipeg Wesmen 79-61.
Improving over the previous
outing, the Birds took control of
the boards and utilized a 22 point1
second half from Thorsen to
manage the win. Thorsen finished
the game with 32 points.
MacKay was top rebounder
with 19 while Derek Sankey had
Little Winnipeg guard Barry
King was high scorer for the
Wesmen with 20 points.
The Birds now have a 10-2
won-lost record, leaving them
little chance to catch the Bisons,
who sport a 10-1 record.
The Birds are also now number
two, and that doesn't mean that
they try harder. It simply means
UBC doesn't currently have the
top college basketball team in
Canada. They do have top
personnel;MacKay, Sankey and
Thorsen being the mainstays of
the Canadian National team, Stan

starters, are both good enough to
play first string on almost any
other team in Western Canada.

Rally round cars on Friday
Ice and snow are only part of

rally will face.
The rally starts Friday at 8
p.m. in front of SUB and ends
sometime Saturday in Princeton
after a round-about route through
In between the competitors
face a gruelling trip over some of
the lesser travelled B.C. roads. The
obscure routes and the winter
conditions combine to present
problems galore to the rallyist.
In fact veteran rallyists agree
that   the   T-Bird   is   the   most
challenging winter rally in North
America—for     both     man    and
. machine.
The rally is not a speed event.
Instead entrants receive time and
speed instructions and even the
slightest    deviation    from    them
results in penalty points being
assessed against the car. The
winner is the one with less points.
Before the rally even starts the
cars entered are put through an
extensive safety inspection.
Rules specify that cars carry-
flares, first aid kits and fire
extinguishers etc. And naturally
enough the cars will be equipped
with studded tires and other
winter equipment accessories that
the conditions demand.
Just in case someone gets over
his head in trouble, a four-wheel
drive truck will follow the cars.
The truck is excellent at pulling
cars from the road-side scenery.
The UBC Sports Car Club is
sponsoring the event which has
received entries from as far away
as San Jose, California and
Winnipeg, Manitoba.

themselves pumping in 10 goals in the third period
to pound the University of Winnipeg Wesmen 14-3.
The Manitoba game was the 'Birds best of the
season as "The whole team was outstanding,"
according to coach Bob Hindmarch.
Sure the victory was a team effort, but centre
Bob MacAneely, goalie Ian Wilkie, winger Doug
Buchanan and defenceman Laurie Vanzella
performed above and beyond the call of duty.
MacAneely scored two goals and picked up an
assist. Both goals were picture efforts and both
rallied the Thunderbirds.
His first tied the score 1-1 just when the Bisons
were threatening to gain control of the game. His
second broke a 2-2 tie early in the third period to
start the 'Birds rally.
Wilkie, unimpressive against Calgary last

Buchanan scored twice and set up MacAneely's

Socialist AH en tie:
Chile's questionmark
Salvador Allende, newly elected socialist
president of Chile, has yet to clearly define
the political and economic course of his
administration. Yet it is clear that the most
exploited sectors of the Chilean population
enthusiastically regard this as their victory.
When a New York Times reporter asked a
poor peasant what he expected of
Allende's government, he stated, "It is our
turn now, I think."
Adapted from the Guardian
Sectors of the middle classes,
bourgeoisie, landowners and other right
wing elements, have attempted to sabotage
the economic and political climate, as was
the case in the early period of the Cuban
revolution. This has included panic
emigration, flight of the dollar, induced
inflation, jitters on the stock exchange,
deliberate stoppage and sabotage of
industrial and farm production and a series
of rightist bombings culminating in the
assassination of Gen. Rene Schneider
Chereau, commander in chief of the
Chilean army (who favored allowing
Allende to take power).
If Allende, candidate of the Popular
Unity Front (UP) is to accomplish anything
of substance during his reign, he must (1)
stay alive (there are serious assassination
threats) and (2) stay in power by
weakening and neutralizing — but not yet
alienating — the military, political and
economic forces. Also, he must strengthen
the power and support of the workers and
peasants and some middle sectors while not
alienating them through precipitous actions
which might seem to counter Chile's
history of bourgeois democratic
institutions — in which the people take
pride and which allowed for Allende's
election. That he is in power today, given
the limitations of an electoral victory with
a multi-party coalition (including
non-Marxist parties) and the absence of a
revolutionary army, shows that at the very
least Allende is a shrewd politician. The
question     now     is     whether     he     has
compromised the possibility of socialist
development in the process.
Besides popular pressure which will be
exerted by those who voted for Allende
(36%) and also a good percentage who
voted for the more moderate Christian
Democratic Party (PDC), there have been
some positive signs towards radicalization.
Take Allende's cabinet, for example.
The minister of interior, Jose Toha
Gonzalez, has been the publisher of the
Marxist newspaper Ultima Hora, linked
closely with Allende's socialist party (PS)
and the most radical daily in Chile.
Clodomiro Almeyda Medina, the foreign
minister, represents the radical wing of the
PS and is a strong defender of both the
Chinese and Cuban revolutions.
Jacques Chonchol Chait, minister of
agriculture, supported president Euduardo
Frei Montalva, the PDC candidate on 1964,
but soon broke with Frei due to the lack of
progress in agrarian reform and helped
form the Popular Action Unity Movement
(MAPU) with other dissedent PDC leaders
and youth. MAPU is part of the UP.
Chonchol helped formulate the agrarian
reform program in Cuba.
Pedro Vuskovic Bravo, minister of
economy, currently is director of the
economic institute of the university of
Chile and defines himself as an
independent Marxist.
Vuskovic has also headed the group
formulating the economic policy for the
Molitically he is more of a question mark
since while emphasizing the need to
nationalize important sectors of the
economy, to reorient production and
distribution priorities, his analysis lacks
socialist political content. In a recent
interview he stated "(Nationalization) is
not a question of political principles. The
nationalizations correspond to the
exigencies of the (economic) scheme . ..
and ... are directed at solving fundamental
problems." He also stated, "this is not
going to be a Marxist government."
A few days after the election, Allende
told  a mass rally that if the right wing
attempted to block his victory he would
call on peasants and workers to take over
land and factories.
The maintaining of the local UP election
committees and the proposed new
constitution, potentially could lead to new
forms of popular control. The committees
were originally set up for the campaign but
will now function as a means of local
contact for the government in factories,
offices, and universities, etc. along with
unions and cooperatives.
JL he UP program states: "The
committees of people's unity ... will be
interpreters and fighters for the immediate
demands of the masses and above all, they
will prepare themselves to exercise people's
Under the proposed new constitution,
the supreme power would pass from the
president to the "people's assembly," a
single legislative house, for which all
Chileans over 18 could vote. The electorate
could recall its representatives at any time.
How and when both these and other
changes could be accomplished under the
present system is unclear.
There are indications Allende's regime
may not go beyond reformism or do more
than modernize capitalism.
Radicalization is not part of the
program, Allende has said. "Perhaps if
obstacles are artificially created, if there is
a conspiracy by ultrareactionary sectors, if
the current attempt to provoke economic
chaos is accentuated, well, we'll be forced
to take steps more quickly and decisively —
that is, the process could be radicalized,
not because we want it to be but because
we have no other choice."
On Oct. 18, according to the Wall Street
Journal, he emphatically stated that he will
not lead the country to communism. An
Allendista intellectual put it this way:
"Nothing is going to happen here. We don't
have a mandate for much more than
The economic program is reformist,
failing to tackle the fundamental problems
of dependency and transition to socialism.

monopolies and Chilean-owned basi?„
industries and banks —in other words, the
expropriation with compensation
(probably in state bonds) will hit 2 per
cent of the Chileans, leaving a mixed and
private sector which would also work
within the general economic plan, with thj
government controlling credit as a
The government will seek foreign
investments which" benefit the Chilean
economy, To achieve this much will be
difficult, since the UP does not have a
majority in Congress. Congressional
elections are scheduled for next March.
The revolutionary left have toned down "
their activities since the election. They
consider Chile^ has entered a
pre-revolutionary stage as opposed to a
socialist revolution, since the bourgeois
state apparatus, military and economic -
power remain intact.
Ultimately, they maintain, an armed
confrontation will be necessary for the
qualitative leap to workers' democracy...
According to a statement of socialist
students and professors at the university of
Concepcion (the most radical campus in
Chile): "We must call for a militant
mobilization of the workers, peasants, slum
dwellers and students, without worrying *
about how this may affect the nerves of
the military... Only a militant
mobilization of the popular masses can halt
the reactionaries' plot." They call for
tactical alliance with the UP to defend the
people's victory.
opposition will not only come from the
right but also possibly from some of the
sectors the UP hopes to work with. For
instance, according to data compiled by.
American sociologist Dale Johnson, the
entrepreneurs neither are likely to support
economic reform. They are -
overwhelmingly opposed to the PC and to
socialism. Large sectors of the middle class,
according to recent research, identify with
the right against the proletariat.
The Christian Democratic Party is split-1
on whether to work with the UP or follow
its own program. Since Frei represents the
moderate wing and will probably lead the   *
party, the latter course is more likely.
Most opposition forces have indicated
they will not accept more than some
economic reforms, like nationalization of
copper. This they define as "socialism." *
"Communism" for them equals
"collectivism" which equals
