THE HONORABLE BRIAN
SMITH
B.C.'s EDUCATION MINISTER
IS CALLED AN ABYSMAL
FAILURE IN EVERY REGARD
BY THOSE HE SERVES
BY CHARLES CAMPBELL
When universities, science and
technology minister Pat McGeer
publicly abandoned responsibility
for public schools many people rejoiced. The Socreds' Dilton Doilly
had never shown much interest in
that part of his job.
The arrival of Brian Smith as
minister of education responsible
for public schools and colleges was
a cause for optimism. He appeared
concerned and sincere. And he
made a show of his concern by tour
ing the province and talking to
teachers, students and trustees.
But as Smith's tenure approaches
two years not much good has happened. Everything remains under
study. Except Smith's credibility.
The critics have lost faith.
Larry Kuehn, president of the
B.C. Teachers Federation is one of
the disillusioned. "When Smith
toured the province I thought he
was going to find out how the system   worked   rather   than   simply
make decisions without consulting
anybody as McGeer had done. But
now I think Smith has been an abysmal failure in every regard."
Others   complain  that   he's   insular, that he's got no clout in cabi-
Education faculty goals threatened
UBC's retrenchment committee has hit the faculty
of education with the largest budget cut among the
professional faculties despite the fact that B.C. imports 25 per cent of its teachers.
Asked if the university's policy of meeting the needs
of the job market is being applied inconsistently,
education dean Dan Birch said he had grave concerns
about the matter.
"The retrenchment committee seems to be operating
under the assumption there are sufficient numbers of
teachers. In fact there are shortfalls every year.
"B.C. Research projections show that UBC will
have to increase enrolment 26 per cent in the next three
years just to maintain its proportion of teacher training within the province.
Asked if he had enough input into the retrenchment
committee's recommendations Birch said he felt he
was heard in good faith. "But I don't understand the
priorities in the report."
The faculty of education faces a budget cut of 3.1
per cent in spite of the fact that its enrolment has risen
6.8 per cent. The only non-administrative area to suffer deeper cuts was graduate studies at 5 per cent.
Birch is quick to point out that the grad studies cut is
also very damaging to the faculty of education because
of the large proportion of grad students in relation to
faculty.
Birch said there are areas of extreme shortage in the
teaching profession, particularly math, science industrial and business education. "In areas like special
education where Brian Smith, the minister of education, is anxious to see people trained, we will be unable
' to respond to the demand. This is a priority area in our
faculty what with the mainstreaming of exceptional
students. We won't be able to add to our capacity in
that area."
Meanwhile Brian Smith showed indifference to the
proposed cuts. He admitted the need for special education training and teachers, but claimed the cuts were
not his ministry's responsibility. When asked if he
would lobby in cabinet to see that UBC's faculty of
education would get special consideration for grant
money he repeated his assertion that "It's not my
ministry's responsibility."
Pauline Weinstein, member of the faculty of education and chair of the Vancouver School Board said "It
is the responsibility of everybody concerned about
education to address the problems created by those
cuts."
Weinstein says there will be no new blood brought
into the faculty through one arid two year appointments, something that is desperately needed in a constantly progressing field.
Birch said the cuts will also affect the important area
of applied research. "We won't be able to make the
appointments necessary to make any important contributions."
Lou Walters, former head of special education says
the cuts will be very difficult to handle. "We've done
what we can to prop things up with inadequate funds
as it is."
Walters also feels that tuition increases will make it
difficult for many students of marginal financial ability to attend UBC. "It -will be particularly difficult for
those from up country who can't stay with their
parents."
The faculty of education is a prime target for cuts
because many people believe there is an oversupply of
teachers. Birch says that while this may be so in other
provinces and in urban areas, that B.C.'s
demographics have created an increasing demand for
teachers.
net and that he's a chameleon on
policy.
An interview with Smith last
month in Victoria certainly did not
allay any fears. Smith looks like a
frightened rabbit at the sight of an
honest tape recorder. Assistant Ron
Tucker leaps to his aid. "You'll get
a better interview if you put that
away."
Ensconced in a plush leather and
oak chair, Smith puffs his pipe,
rubs his leather elbow patches and
defers the first question about the
goals of the provincial learning
assessment program. "I'm afraid I
can't answer a detailed question like
that without some advance notice."
The two assistants who flank him
are at an equal loss to define its objectives.
Though he listens well and pauses
before he answers, communication
is a major problem in dealing with
Smith. Kuehn accuses him of being
inconsistent. "He seems to respond
to whoever's there at the moment.
In terms of curriculum development
he seems to be without philosophy."
Vancouver school board chair
Pauline Weinstein echoes those: sentiments. "Courses that the boards
mandate the ministry to develop
aren't, and courses we don't want
are forced on us."
She points to the proposed consumer fundamentals course to be
made mandatory at the grade 10
level. "He's brought this course in
response to a strong trade union
and business lobby, and while it's
important that he respond to that,
he's brought it in too quickly.
Boards were not really consulted."
Smith feels these accusations are
unfounded. He points to the social
studies curriculum currently being
rewritten. "It's been out in the field
twice  for  comments.   We've  had
substantial input from the educational community. Those programs
aren't planned by bureaucrats. We
bring people in from the field who
actually teach to design them."
Asked what he's doing to improve communication between himself and the system he oversees, he
walks the dog right around the
block and talks about establishing
closer liaison between boards and
teachers.
But that's not where the problem
lies, says Weinstein. "Communication between boards and teachers is
fine for the most part."
Kuehn says the problems with
curriculum development lie partly
in the refusal of the ministry to recognize the BCTF as the voice of the
teaching profession. "People from
within the administration are
choosing who will develop courses
and provide input. But the teachers
themselves should^be deciding who
represents their views.
"Smith is moving back to the
1950s in terms of curriculum development, using central control to
make decisions to standardize curriculum. But communities are different and students have different
needs. The ministry should be establishing broad goals but leave it
up to people at the local level to
make specific decisions."
Smith has also done much procrastinating on the school financing
question. Twice Smith has expressed sympathy for urban homeowners
burdened with unreasonable school
tax increases and twice he has done
nothing to ease their plight substantially. A minor adjustment of
the mill rate saved Vancouver taxpayers only $78 on a mean assessment of nearly $1,300. That figure
is almost three times what the same
taxpayer paid two years ago.

By GREG FJETLAND
Next to the race track it's the biggest game in
town. It's not the Mah Jong tables in Chinatown
but Elks Hall Bingo on Granville Street. Brace yourself
for a look at Vancouver's seamier, steamier side; it's big
time Bingo on a Saturday night.
The Elk's hall is warm, humid and very full. On the
main floor, long tables run the length of the hall, with
the caller and bingo machine on a raised stage at the
front. In a smaller side room are more tables and even
more in the basement. Every table is covered with bingo
cards; the players sit shoulder to shoulder down either
side of the table.
Wayne is a doorman at the hall. "We've got a full
house tonight," he says "between 600 and 700 people.
We'll get near that tomorrow; Sunday afternoon. And
Greenpeace bingo gets about 600 here on Tuesday and
Thursday nights."
Looking over the crowd, a preconception is shattered.
There are not only elderly people here but middle-aged
and young people, in their late teens and early '20s.
"Everybody comes," says Wayne, "from 16 to 86, to
96. Every age plays here, as long as they're 15. They
come from all over: New West, Richmond, Surrey."
Aside from murmurs, rustlings and coughing, the hall
is surprisingly quiet for such a large crowd. The Caller's
amplified voice is loud as it booms out the numbers.
"G-Forty-Two. Four Two, I-Thirteen. One Three."
"We try to keep the talking down," says Wayne. "If
anyone's talking too much we tell him to keep quiet."
The rules of the game are, of course, very simple. The
caller at the front calls out the letters and numbers as
they are generated from the bingo machine. The players
match the numbers to those printed on the cards purchased for the evening, and when a player fills in a line,
horizontally, vertically or diagonally, on the five a side
card, that player shouts out Bingo and that's the game's
end. All the players wipe their cards clear of chips (in
this hall with magnetic wands) and the game begins
anew.
The object of the game is to be the first to shout
Bingo, and the prize for that is cash. A regular game
card pays $200 to $100 if the player wins on a blue card,
and $300 on a red card. The red cards are most expensive at $2 each. Regular cards are only 50 cents. Then
there's the final jackpot game: $1,000 for a full card.
The game proceeds; the monotone of the caller drags
on. It's hard to understand the apparent fascination the
players have with the game. But they are. The people sit,
hunched over the array of cards before them.
"It's just the same as people playing the horses," says
Wayne. "Ever see a guy running to the track to place his
bets on a daily double? He'll knock you down if you get
in his way. It's the same way with bingo. There are some
people here that would cut each other's throat for a certain card."
The bingo player is very strange. Very strange. There
are people who line up at 2:30 p.m. to get in, even
though the doors don't open till 3:30 p.m. and the game
doesn't begin until 6:30 p.m.
Know why? To get their favourite seat. "There are
some people been sitting in their same seat for 40 years
and if they don't get their favourite seat they'll turn
around and go home," says Wayne.
The caller drones on. The bingo balls fly around the
glass box, whipped by air jets and by chance' one
regularly finds its way along the tubeway to the caller's
hand. "I-Twenty-one. O-nine. O-nine." A murmur runs through the crowd. "See. Now they're yipping
and yapping," says Wayne. "It's the first time tonight
that number has come up. You can't please a bingo
player. They always think everybody is trying to cheat
them. They think that if they're waiting for B-l and it
doesn't come out during the game, they think, 'look at
that. The son-of-a-bitches keep the ball out just cause I
need it.' Bingo players and horse players are the worse
people to please."
Most people have a number of cards in front of them.
"The rookies play less than ten cards. The pros play two
dozen. Some play up to 40. I play 26 myself," says
Wayne. The pros are easy to spot. They seem to have
their cards memorized, their hands moving a chip quickly to cover a called number among the large array before
them.
Though everyone is watching their cards fastidiously
now and talking to no one, for many the game is an
important social event. "There are foursomes who meet
here and play bridge. Others play penny poker. Others
play European rummy," Wayne says.
"Some people play for years and they never win. But
they keep coming. Some people can't go out, so they
come to bingo. And other people are just plain
fanatical. About half the people are here all the time
(four nights a week)."
There's a sudden disturbance among the players at
one table. A man is having a seizure it seems. Wayne
gets on the Public Announcement system. "Is there
medical help in the building." The caller stops. "You
have to stick a pin through his tongue and pull it right
out so he doesn't swallow it," advises an elderly lady
standing nearby. Fortunately a man and two women
come running, and Wayne points them toward the man
afflicted. Then he gives a high sign and the caller
resumes droning. Quickly the din ceases and people go
back to their cards. "Things like this happen," says
Wayne. "We had a man die here once. He died in the
ambulance." Ray, another doorman, attracted by the
excitement adds, "We've had babies, we had a gunman
once. What do you think this is, Sunday school?" No, it
isn't Sunday school, Ray. Sunday school was never like
this, this is unmistakeably Saturday night Bingo.

Sorrow floats, bears roam in hotel
By GLEN SCHAEFER
The book sits on the shelf like a
slug on a plate, by its presence a
reproach for the review due two
months ago.
The task looms distastefully, the
slug doesn't invite dissection.
In The Hotel New Hampshire,
author John Irving speaks in his
private, tortured allegory, using a
cast of characters intended to represent an obscure life experience, Irv-
ing's own, one assumes.
The Hotel New Hampshire
John Irving
Clark, Irwin and Company
401 pages, $19.95
The story details the life of the
tediously bizarre Berry family, their
experiences in hotel management,
IRVING
sluggish writer
and the people who inhabit their
string of failed hotels.
Tediously bizarre? Well, there's
mother, normal enough, but she
dies just into the book. Father is the
one with the fetish for hotels, starting the family in the business in
their depressing New England home
town, and then launching them in
another such establishment in Vienna.
Father's first claim to fame is as
the straight man for a novelty act
involving a bear and a motorcycle.
Eldest son Frank has an ill-
starred interest in taxidermy. He
stuffs the family's dead dog, Sor
row, and the animal subsequently
scares old Granddad to death.
Irving seems to throw his
characters into new situations purely  by  whim.   Things  are  moving
slowly at their first Hotel New
Hampshire, so Irving throws in a
midget circus troupe to liven things
up.
The novelty of that one wears off
after a while, so Irving ships the
family off to Vienna, where they
and a little blind Viennese fellow
nicknamed Freud run a second
Hotel New Hampshire.
And on the way over to Vienna,
Mother's plane crashes into the
Atlantic, and that's the last we see
of her and Egg, the youngest child.
The only thing found by rescuers
after the crash is the stuffed and
mounted family dog, Sorrow.
Sorrow floats, Irving tells us.
This hotel in Vienna has its share
of twists, too. There are the prostitutes working out of one floor,
see, and this radical political group
working out of another.
A woman working the hotel does
not feel comfortable unless she'
wearing a bear suit, and acting as a
bear. Some fun, huh?
The novel entertains for a while.
The first chapter, excerpted last fall
in Rolling Stone magazine, reads
very pleasantly like a short story.
But it all becomes tiresome and
painfully contrived after a while,
although one senses that Irving is
trying very hard to say something
important — to him at least.
What does it all mean? The desire
to find out fades as the aggravation
builds.
With apologies to Monty Python,
this is not a book for reading, this is
a book for laying down and
avoiding. What one looks for most
upon entering The Hotel New
Hampshire is a place to check out.
The paper you save could be your own
Sometimes you get that urge to snap the head off of a bottle of Wild Turkey, hop
into a convertible belonging to someone else and take a spin on the Squamish
highway at night with the lights off and a brick lying on the gas pedal so your leg
won't get tired. Unfortunately statistics compiled by the provincial Ministry of
Highways show that 2 out of 3 that try it somehow tragically survive to face
manslaughter charges.
But you can get the same weird thrill of irresponsible flirting with danger by dropping in to take a look at The Ubyssey any weekday afternoon. Check out some fast
company who give a whole new meaning to 'minimum .08' and who write with the
reckless abandon of a semi-trailer loaded with bridge parts losing its brakes on the
Wreck Beach trail.
You'll never get out alive.

nt drint drint drint drint drint drint dri
By CORINNA SUNDARARAJAN
A work of art is like a magic trick
— the method is mystified so that
the finale awes. It is the suggestively
obscure "abracadabra" drawing
forth a rabbit from a hat which impresses the trick's ingenuity upon
an audience, and not the mundane
mechanics of a false bottom and
smuggled fur.
By exhaustively recording the
mundane method of printmaking in
his Drint Suite: An Excavation of a
Drawing, Richard Sewell, one of
the founders of Toronto's Open
Studio, destroys the mystery of artistry by glorifying the perspiration
of perseverence. Only a masochist
can endure or appreciate his self-
imposed exercise in repetition.
The Drint Suite: An Excavation
of a Drawing
By Richard Sewell
UBC Fine Arts Gallery
Jan. 6-30, 1982
In all, the UBC Fine Arts Gallery
displays 426 versions of a single still
life (also on display for spite), hence
the name "drint"—an amalgam of
printing and drawing, describing
Sewell's technique. This original if
monotonous experiment took the
artist four lost years to complete.
SEWELL'S STUDY . . . monotomy monotonized monotonously
The first year, Sewell filled a
wooden box, screened by a grid,
with painted grey apples, grey bananas, grey tomatoes, grey books,
grey vase, and a crystalline glass.
Each day at the same hour for the
same length of time he sketched a
pencil study on grid paper. Result:
an entire gallery wall oppressively
strung with 36 rows of mechanical
rote.
Three hundred and sixty drints
down.
The second year he produced only one drawing a week, daily building each image grid by grid, much
like a print is built plate by plate.
The gallery's layout mimics Sewell's
evident fatigue: the drawings droop
limply from their stands, more like
a flock of gasping geese than "an
excavation site of the drawing technique."
Thirteen drints to go.
Sewell sank a third year into color, a bright respite in this chamber
of grey. Each month, limiting himself to one color per week, he produced a dozen near-final images. By
splicing   and   juxtaposing   these
drawings with polaroid prints, he
creates what would have been an arresting spatial expansion if the
viewer were not already dulled beyond appreciation. In fact the only
real novelty in the entire display is a
peephole sighter which, when peeped through incorrectly, allows one
to creatively distort the 426th (and
last) drint in revenge.
Thus the weakness of this display
is its very concept: The Drint Suite
is essentially one drawing documented beyond obsession, like a
sonata composed of one note
pounded 426 times. In attempting
to chronicle each minute step of the
artistic process, Sewell has destroyed the spontaneity and sheer mystery which distinguishes creation
from imitation. Here, the mechanics dominate the work rather than
fulfill the vision. As a technical exercise, the project is of arresting
value, but as an art work it is unrelentingly monotonous. It belongs in
a portfolio, not a gallery.
Sewell explains: "The piece is not
stripped down to the essence of an
idea but rather all the fumblings,
extremes and successes of the idea.
It is everything I could say about
one drawing."
And he has said much too much.
Ross' Pennies from
Heaven a landmark
in history of musicals
By SHAFFIN SHARIFF
Pennies from Heaven is an extraordinary film musical. Directed
by Herbert Ross from a screenplay
by Dennis Potter, Pennies form
Heaven is fascinating to watch and
experience from the first frame to
the last. Its musical numbers are as
lavish as those found in '30s and
'40s musicals, though its aims surpass any American film musical
ever made.
Pennies from Heaven's dramatic
narrative is about as far from the
fantastic reality of the early
musicals as you can get. Some of
the best known songs of the '30s are
used in the film to create a startling
effect. The musical numbers in Pennies from Heaven, beautifully staged and choreographed, as used as
Brechtian are devices to let you
know just how false and sugar
coated the '30s musicals were.
Pennies from Heaven
Directed by Herbert Ross
Playing at Capitol Six
All the musical numbers in Pennies from Heaven are framed by
troublesome situations — a marriage that precludes sexual satisfaction, an illicit affair, prostitution,
and an execution — that cannot be
resolved to anyone's satisfaction.
When characters in this film feel
constrained, they break into songs.
The songs, including the melodic
and ironic title track, express what
the characters would like to say and
be. And what they aspire to is what
the movie musicals on the big screen
have been telling their audiences
about — happiness.
Pennies from Heaven is bathed in
the neon brilliance of art deco.
Glossy whites, shimmering silvers,
and expressionistic shadows
dominate the mise-en-scene. Near
the beginning, when a song sheet
salesman's request for a loan to
operate his own business (the
American dream) is harshly rejected, both he and the bank
manager smooch and break into a
song — Yes! Yes! My Baby Said
Yes!, complete with chorus girls
who seem like cutouts from the
Busby Berkley musicals. The transition to fantasy from reality is a
magnificent, unexpected moment,
and the sequence dazzles with its
originality and audacity.
Despite their Brechtian use, the
musical numbers aren't alienating
because they are executed with such
precision and affection for the '30s
musicals. The songs in Pennies
from Heaven aren't lip synched; the
audience is always aware of the
dubbing. And the songs aren't re-
recordings of old tunes, they're
original renditions. When you see
:haracters in this film trying to
emulate stars of the '30s musicals,
you're always aware that the actors
:an mimick the moves but no: the
voices, and it underlines the
:haracter's pathos.
The film doesn't back away from
its characters when it handles effects of depression. Home, the
great sanctuary of the American
family, becomes a vampiric structure. "I was dead there (at home),"
says Eileen (Bernadette Peters), a
school teacher. And for Arthur
;Steve Martin), the salesman, home
is a place where his wife will not
share his sexual adventures because
3f her puritan background. When
Eileen, pregnant with Arthur's
baby, leaves home, she comes to the
:ity — where dreams are supposed
to come true — and ends up prostituting herself for a drink.
Characters in Pennies from
Heaven have to prostitute
themselves to survive. Arthur's wife
Joan feels humiliated when she consents to his sexual foreplay because
that is the only way she can keep
him home; she is pent up with rage
because she is forced into prostitution. When the police arrive later to
question her about Arthur's possible involvement in a rape-murder of
a blind woman, Joan is quick to
divulge his 'perversions' (confession is good for the soul), and then
exclaims: "Cut his thing off!"
Everything in the world of Pennies from Heaven has a price —
even kindness. "You're not a tease,
are ya? Or I'll cut your face," says
Tom (Christopher Walken), a pimp
who offers Eileen a 'free' drink.
The Accordion Man, whom Arthur
befriends, becomes the salesman's
nemesis. Earlier, when Arthur tells
Eileen that he is not married and he
loves her, he is lying; he only wants
to sleep with her. When he finds out
about his illegitimate baby, he
misleads Eileen by telling her that
he'll take care of everything and
then abandons her.
Nothing in Herbert Ross'
previous work indicated that he had
either the nerve or the skill ta take
on a musical like Pennies from
Heaven. What makes the movie
such a pleasurable experience is the
perfect combination of technical
crew assembled for this expensive
$18 million project:
cinematographer Gordon Willis
(Annie Hall, Interiors, The Godfather), choreographer Danny
Daniels, art directors Fred Tuch
and Bernie Cutler, and costume
designer Bob Mackie. Particularly
impressive among the musical
pieces is the Pennies from Heaven
production number, with the Accordion Man, Vernel Bagneris.
The film's second last number is
also a show stopper. Watching the
Astaire-Rogers musical Follow the
Fleet in a movie house, Arthur and
Eileen go on stage and mimic the
masterful duo, but their figures
seem tiny and inconsequential with
the screen's larger-than-life images.
But in the next moment, Arthur
and Eileen become the Astaire-
Rogers characters on the screen
(many of the musical numbers in
Pennies from Heaven were shot on
the same MGM sound stages used
for '30musicals), and the walking
sticks of the gentlemen chorus become prison bars. This one image,
captures what Pennies from Heaven
is trying to say about old musicals;
they suggest rays of hope during the
depression, but ended up as a
crutch.
On the screen, Astaire is singing,
ironically, Let's Face the Music and
Dance; Arthur, on the run with Eileen, is facing death for a murder.
When Follow the Fleet ends and Arthur and Eileen step out of the theatre, he says, "There must be a
place where songs are real. You
come out of the movie and the
world's changed." Someone in the
background is humming Happy
Days are Here Again.
The juxtaposition of reality and
fantasy musical numbers isn't static
because the musical numbers are
varied in style. During the lavish
musical numbers, the film is about
the history of the early musicals,
when the genre was in its heyday. It
covers the vaudeville era (during the
It's the Girl rendition), the Busby
Berkley choruses (during Yes!
Yes!), Helen Kane's boop-boop-a-
doops (during Love is Good for
Anything that Ails You), the cabaret (during the striptease by Walk-
en, Let's Misbehave), and culminates with the Astaire-Rogers musicals (during Let's Face the Music
and Dance).
Pennies from Heaven has a dozen
or so numbers, but more wouldn't
have hurt at all; leaving the theatre,
you want more because many of the
musical numbers aren't choreographed with complete renditions

Still, what Herbert Ross has managed to accomplish, with Gordon

Banff Centre 'hothouse' of talent
By lawrf:nce PANYCH
The Banff Centre summer
dance school is a "hothouse of
decision," says renowned Canadian choreographer Brian McDonald. The newly appointed
head of the Banff Centre's, dance
program was in Vancouver this
week as part of a national tour
to introduce a restructured program.
According to MacDonald, internationally recognized dancers
such as Reid Anderson, Jennifer
Penny, and Richard Cragun
made their decisions to devote
themselves entirely to dance
when they participated for several weeks in the intense artistic
"hothouse" of the Banff Centre.
The restructured program includes a professional level as well
as a separate program of intermediate and advanced sessions.
The professional program is
geared to provide young dancers
with a structured professional
situation.
DANCER.■■ at Banff hothouse
During the first four weeks at
Banff, senior level students will
take class while rehearsing three
ballets to be presented during
their fifth week and then tour
throughout Alberta during the
sixth and final week of the program. They will work with members of the Alberta Ballet who
will be in residence at Banff.
Some dozen scholarships will be
available for students in the professional program.
The intermediate and advanced program may be of interest to
UBC students. Asked whether
or not there was a place in such a
program for serious amateurs,
MacDonald said there was if
they had several years of training
and had reached a reasonable
level of proficiency. The program includes classes in jazz and
contemporary dance as well as
classical ballet technique.
MacDonald will return to
Vancouver on Feb. 8 to hold
auditions for this summer's
dance program. Auditions will
be held at the Vancouver Opera
Association hall and arrangements to be seen may be made by
writing Janet Amy at the Banff
Centre (Box 1020, Banff, Alberta T0L 0C0). Page 6

Parliament Meals 'Conscription'
Model Parliament Axes Gov't Ads, Buys CP,
Increases University Funding, Defeats Tax Cuts
TORIES . . . leader's seat vacant
By CRAIG BROOKS
In Parliament last week, 19 year
old Canadians came within only a
few votes of being forced to serve
an entire year in a National Service
Corp.
During the same session, MPs
passed a bill to outlaw most government advertising, unless approved
by a parliamentary committee.
A government resolution to nationalize Canada Pacific for a fraction of its real value was amended
to allow the government to buy ten
per cent of the company on the
open market.
Parliament unanimously approved greatly increased funding for
science and engineering programs at
Canadian universities.
These actions were only a small
part of the business Parliament
dealt with over a special three day
sitting last weekend in Victoria.
But it's too bad it was only make-
believe.
Instead of the usual combination
of lawyers, business people, used
car dealers and other "typical"
politicians, university students were
in control.
Elected by their fellow students in
a random poll, representatives of
the three major federal political
parties met in a moot federal
parliamentary session in the provincial legislative chambers.
Model parliament society vice
president Jeff Kuwica says the purpose of the moot parliament and
the associated society is "the encouragement of political, social,
and educational understanding and
appreciation, among B.C. young
people, towards our common
political and parliamentary
system."
"It is to practise debate. You also
learn how parliament works. It's a
chance to meet people from other
parties, although they have different ideas, you are still held
together by your beliefs in the
parliamentary tradition."
This is the Parliament's eighth
year  of  existence.   The   first  two
years the event was strictly a
University of Victoria event,
Kuwica says.
Standings in the house are determined by a random sample of 350
university students in B.C. Students
are asked which political party they
would vote for if an election were
held today. In this year's polling,
the NDP took government with 128
votes, compared to the Progressive
Conservative's 122 and the
Liberal's 100. This gave the parties
20, 20, and 16 seats, respectively, in
the provincial legislative chambers.
This year, debating topics ranged
from a resolution on
"conscription" to the severing of
diplomatic relations with countries
which violate the United Nations
charter of rights.
Symbolic of the event's purpose
was the debate on a Liberal bill for
a high technology industrial
strategy for Canada. The bill increased funding for science and applied science university schooling
and technological institutes. AH
three parties were soon claiming it
was "their" type of bill. The
NDP called it a "good piece of
Socialist legislation," while the
Tories called it a "free-enterprise
oriented" document.
The industrial strategy bill was
the only bill or resolution all three
parties unanimously agreed upon.
The PC's opposed the partial nationalization of Canadian Pacific,
while the Liberals opposed a resolution to regulate federal government
advertising because it was allegedly
"Liberal bashing."
The weekend's stormiest debates
were on two Conservative resolutions. The Universal Employment
for Young Canadians resolution,
which would have established a National Service Corps for all 19 year
old Canadians would have been
created. The NDP and Liberals,
charging the resolution was "conscription," and "undemocratic,"
:ombined to easily defeat the
resolution.
A second Tory resolution, to immediately cut 15 per cent of the
government expenditure, 15 per
cent of the civil service, with a 15
per cent reduction in income tax
was also trounced by the NDP and
Liberals. NDP prime minister Dave
Gort said the Tories were "fiscally
irresponsible," charging the proposal would have led to a $30
billion annual deficit.
The model parliament only works
to it's fullest with a minority
government. For the past eight
years, minority governments have
been formed. In a majority government, the back-room politicking
that goes on into the early hours of
the morning would become useless,
and one of the major educational
aspects, cooperation in a
democracy, would be lost.
But the stable minority situation
is being threatened. Over the past
four years, the Liberal's have gone
from a strong government to an
ever-weakening third party opposition, with the resulting gains going
to the PCs and NDP. And unfortunate circumstances of Western
Canadian back-lash against eastern
Liberals may soon fundamentally
affect the operation of the B.C.
university model parliament.
Art Lee, former Liberal M.P. for
Vancouver East, played the governor general for the session. According to Lee, the quality of debate is
as good, if not better, than that
practised in Ottawa.
But a by-product of such an
event is that strong willed and experienced people take Ihe Had. This
leads to alienation among many
first time parliamentarians who are
often less politically involved.
These dominant individuals often
obstruct productive debate with
minor points of order, and trivial
matters.
Kuwica says the practices of some
people, including himself,
discourage others from involvement
in the moot parliament sitting.
"People like me tend to get over excited, let their partisan interest get
in the way of the essence of
debate."
It is not necessary to be a party
member only a club member
Kuwica said. "The (model parliament society) executive are considering ways for people who are
not members of political clubs to
get involved," Kuwica said.
Hopefully this will enable those
people who have a desire to learn
more about parliamentary procedure and government to participate without subscribing to the
policies of a single political party.
Canadian taxpayers would have
had their money's worth from their
MPs if this was the normal volume
of business discussed in the house
of commons in a weekend. Maybe
there is hope for our future leaders,
but then considering some of the
proposed legislation and resolutions, maybe there isn't.

THE    UBYSSEY

Volleyball
The women's team is hosting the
Thunderette Invitational tournament tonight and Saturday. The
tournament starts at 7 p.m. and
continues all day Saturday with the
championship match at 7 p.m.
The other teams in the tournament are the University of Victoria,
Simon Fraser University and
Chimos, who are ranked number
one in the country.
UBC coach Sandy Silver is using
this tournament to help prepare her
team for the next Canada West
tournament which takes place Jan.
29 and 30. UBC is in third place
after going 3-2 in each of the first
two tournaments. Calgary is in first
place with a 9-1 record.
The UBC men lost a close exhibition match to the B.C. Olympics Wednesday night by blowing a
14-11 lead in the fifth game of a
best of five series.
After winning two of the first
three games the 'Birds dropped the
last two 10-15, and 15-17. UBC
coach Dale Ohman rested three
players who played in the win
against the Olympics last week to
give some of his other players playing time.
Chris Frehlick and Brian
Drosdovech of UBC were picked by
the Knowledge Network, who were
telecasting the games, as the top
players.
Rugby
The men's team will host either
the Vancouver Rowing club or the
'Birdwatch
UBC Old Boys Saturday on the
Thunderbird Stadium at 2:30 p.m.
The Rowing club is the scheduled
opponent but may not be able to get
a team together. If that happens
UBC will pay the Old Boys. The
Old Boys will provide tougher opposition as they downed UBC 28-3
in October.
Gymnastics
The women's team will host the
university of Alberta and Calgary
today at 6 p.m. at the Osborne Centre. This is the first,time UBC has
faced any Canada West rivals this
season. In meets against American
universities, six UBC gymnists
registered high enough scores to
qualify for the Canadian Intercollegiate Athletic Union championships this March in Winnipeg.
Skiing
The men's and women's teams
will host teams from Washington,
Oregon, Idaho and Montana
weekend at Mt. Baldy, Osoyoos.
This is the second Northwest Collegiate Ski Conference meet. The
UBC men and women won the
season opener last weekend on
Crystal Mt. in Washington.
Basketball
The men's and women's teams
are travelling to Lethbridge this
weekend to play the University of
Lethbridge.
Both teams are having problems
this season. The men have a lack of
height and an erratic shooting
game. The 'Birds should be able to
improve their 1-5 record if Pat West
and Lloyd Scrubb continue to improve and Bob Forsyth returns to
his previous form.
The women's team probably
knows its problems better than
anyone else. The women's poor performance will take several years to
turn around. The only bright spot
at the moment is Cathy Bultitude.
Bultitude was sixth in Canada West
scoring last year which is excellent
considering UBC's record.
Swimming
The swim team will be in Edmonton tonight for a meet against the
University of Alberta and in
Calgary Saturday for a meet with
the University of Calgary.
The meets are preparation for the
Canada West championships Feb.
18-20 and for the national championships which will be held at UBC
March 4 to 6.
Hockey
The hockey team will be in
Calgary Saturday and Sunday to
take on the University of Calgary.
The 'Birds dropped two games to
Calgary last weekend.
Intramurals
Two major upcoming events are
the Bookstore 3-on-3 basketball
tournament and the Grouse Mt. ski
race. The basketball tournament is
on Saturday and Sunday Jan. 23
and 24 and the ski race takes place
Thursday Jan. 28.

TWICE SMITH HAS EXPRESSED
SYMPATHY FOR URBAN
HOMEOWNERS BURDENED
WITH HIGH TAXES AND
TWICE HE HAS IGNORED
THEIR PLIGHT.
From page 1
Bay he supported the recommendation of the McMath report to lift
the burden of school taxes from the
homeowner. But as the minister of
education he claimed that the
recommendations would cost his
ministry too much money.
The McMath report was amended to meet his objections. It now
provides for a floating mill rate determined regionally so that taxes in
areas of wildly fluctuating values
could be kept at a reasonable level.
The province would continue to pay
75 per cent of education costs out of
general revenue.
But Smith had already come out
with a proposal of his own. He sug'
gested that the province pay 100 per
cent of the costs of financing a core
program of courses with local
school boards picking up the full
cost of other programs through locally determined taxes.
Smith says his objective is to gain
control over the way provincial
money is spent.
Kuehn feels that Smith's proposals jeopardize the principle of
equalization between school districts. "What will happen is that a
school district's ability to provide
extras will depend on their tax
base."
Asked if he feels his financing
proposals might create a checkerboard school system with some
areas unable to provide needed options Smith replies with a terse,
"That's a problem."
Kuehn says the problem with
government financing formulas is
that the province doesn't want to
carry its share of the burden. "He's
interested in spending the smallest
possible share of the provincial
budget on education."
The figures bear Kuehn out.
Since 1977 the share of the provincial budget spent on public schools
has fallen from 14.7 per cent to 11.7
per cent. And the share of the total
public school costs that the province has taken up has fallen every
year the Socreds have been in
power.
"This has to represent a conscious policy on the part of the Social Credit government," Kuehn
says.
The notion that funding cutbacks
have been a conscious policy of the
Socreds is reinforced by Smith's
treatment of the colleges. A year

REPORT CARD
PUPIL'S NAME: SMITH, Brian
YEAR LAST COMPLETED: N/A
SUBJECT
GRADE
COLLEGE FINANCING
For two years Smith has cut back expenditures on colleges while at the same time he has proposed tuition
increases well above the rate of inflation. This kind of profiteering will not be tolerated in the school system,
especially wien Smith spends a good deal of uncreative time squealing on the federal government for its
own cutbucks. Brian has set a bad example for the other politicians that they can only be expected to follow.
TAXATION REFORM
As mayor of Oak Bay, Smith supported the McMath proposal to reform the school taxation system, but as
minister of education he opposed it. When the report was amended to meet his objections, he came out with
his own proposal. The B.C. Teachers' Federation and the B.C. School Trustees' Association support Mc-
Math's recommendations and oppose Smith's. The minister will have to learn to be more consistent in his
work.
SOCIAL STUDIES
Appalling and unteachable are adjectives that have applied to the two drafts of the proposed new socials curriculum that have been published so far. Smith's own assistant, Ron Tucker, cal ed the first draft "crap."
That draft proposed teaching the niceties of telling time to eight year olds and included no world history.
Despite the lack of progress, Smith insists that there is nothing wrong with the process of curriculum development. He promises that, 'The final result will be substantially different from the initial drafts." We
wish him luck in the future and hope that he will give others as many chances as he has given himself.
CRISIS MANAGEMENT
This year's course in crisis management deals with alleviating the unfair school tax burden on urban homeowners. However, Smith cannot take this course before he's passed taxation reform. Somebody should have
told him that before he enrolled in the program
CONSUMER FUNDAMENTALS
Consumed by the ministrations of the big business and trade union lobby, Smith is ramming through a mandatory course in consumer fundamentals at the grade 10 level. Poorly planned because of the rush, brought
in without consultation and without proper teacher training, the program is predictably unpopular. Pauline
Weinstein, Vancouver school board chair, feels the program will severely restrict the options necessary to
meet students' different needs. She says much of the material in the course could have been incorporated
into other programs. But Smith says he feels the program is essential. However, when asked about the reduced flexibility created by the class he admits that, ' Perhaps we are trying to give students too well rounded an education." On the whole Smith has been unable to justify his behavior
PUBLIC RELATIONS
Smith has shown a lot of talent for public relations. However, he has yet to perfect the art of the continuing
dodge and the vacuous response. As a result, he sometimes finds himself in compromising positions.
TEACHER RELATIONS
Smith nas a difficult time rela'ing to teachers. Perhaps he senses impending betrayal from the group that
practically elected the NDP in 1972. Don't talk to them and you can't offend them appears to be his philosophy. Perhaps this is the reason why he allows teachers to get away with so much each year in salary negotiations. Perhaps this principle guides him when he opposes collective bargaining in favor of a system that
has individual districts negotiate wage settlements. Some day Brian Smith will have to learn to get along with
his peers.
UBC FUNDING CUTBACKS
"It's not my responsibility," Smith says of proposed cuts to the UBC faculty of education's beleaguered
budget. Smith has been given too much responsibility and doesn't take enough of it.
THE VOUCHER SYSTEM
For once Smith has found allies in the BCTF and the BCSTA. They all think that tne voucher system would be
disruptive elitist and otherwise nasty. However, the delegates at the last Socred convention supported the
concept and Pat McGeer likes the idea. Classes start soon on this subject, which has provoked much controversy in the U.S. Liberal educator Ivan llych and conservative Milton Friedman have made strange bed-
mates in their support of this, concept. Stranger things may happen here.
ago he proposed an 83 per cent fee
increase coincidental with a $700,-
000 funding cutback at Capilano
College. After students and faculty
there joined in protest that 83 per
cent figure was reduced to 19 per
cent. But the funding cuts remained. Things are not going to get bet
ter now that the provincial government can pawn responsibility for its
long standing policies on the federal
govenment.
Education is a sensitive portfolio.
Most action is going to be controversial. Certainly it is much easier
politically to propose and repropose
as Smith has done on almost every
issue. Smith, flanked by his deputies, would probably say he's simply
seeking the perfect option. More
likely he has made a policy of dithering, except in times of dire economic self interest. Smith is not uncommon among his species. Page 10
THE    UBYSSEY

ARMSTRONG . . . board candidate

JANES . . . board candidate
FULKER. . .senate c
Hey, it's student election tim
Apart from meeting once a month to be wined and
dined in the faculty club, UBC's board of governors
concerns itself with the day to day operations of the
university including property and buildings, and
finances.
Finances, with the recent retrenchment committee
report, will be the major issue facing the board. But
the board will also be involved in the selection of a new
administration president to replace Doug Kenny.
The board has 15 members: Eight appointed by the
provincial government from the lesser business elite of
B.C., two elected by the faculty, one elected by the
unions, the president, the chancellor and oh yes, two
students who will be elected Monday and Tuesday next
week.
ARMSTRONG Kerry
Kerry Armstrong is a likeable, shy person who has
no concept of what being a student board of governors
representative entails.
Her main motive for being a board candidate is to
gain experience, she said, but later claimed that her
previous experience was the prime reason she should
be elected.
A fourth year physical education student, Armstrong says her experiences as the physical education
undergraduate society president and an administrator
and participant in the intramurals program are her
strongest credentials.
She also cites involvement in the past summer's
frosh orientation program and her sorority as assets.
All in all, a successful high school community recea-
tion graduate.
"I've been around the campus for a while, know a
lot of students, and because of that I would be able to
convey a wide range of student concerns to board
members . . . being involved with intramurals alone
puts me in contact with 5,000 students," Armstrong
said.
She added the main election issues include rising tuition fees and the appointment of a new administration
president to replace Doug Kenny.
"I agree with tuition fees going up with inflation.
The question is should students pay for what the
government is unwilling to provide; my answer being
that no, students should not," Armstrong said.
Armstrong said the selection of a new president
would be a huge issue. "I want the best one we can get,
one who will be creative and energetic," she said.
Armstrong opposes any curtailment in enrolment or
accessibility. "For people I know, accessibility has
been relatively easy, but of course I haven't had any
contacts with the people who couldn't make it," she
said.
Her position on student involvement and input in
university decision-making is a typical melange of
cautious conservatism. Her strongest comment was to
criticize the administration for not having student
representation on the retrenchment committee.
DALE Dave
JANES Francis
Dave Dale and Francis Janes are hazy on issues currently facing students, although they do have some
concrete ideas on how they can help their constituents
and successfully represent them.
Dale (commerce 4) and Janes (applied science 3) are
running together because they feel team strength is important to be effective at board of governors meetings.
They support each others opinions and rarely disagree
on issues.
Dale and Janes agree the major issues are; fee increases, accessibility, housing and cutbacks, but failed
to pinpoint specific problems and solutions.
On the issue of tuition fees, Dale and Janes feel that
increases should not exceed annual cost of living increases.
When asked how they would deal with the problems
they perceive, Dale and Janes waffled, finally saying it
is up to the students to mobilize and effectively speak
out against the "ridiculous proposals" made by the
president advisory committee on retrenchments.
"Students must organize now," they said. "We
urge the creation of a coalition of student interests on
campus. The Alma Mater Society should cease to be
programs and clubs oriented and should also begin to
address the more serious issues of cutbacks and fee increases."
How do they intend to mobilize the masses against
the decision makers? "If we are elected, we will not sit
back and wait for students to come to us telling us
what to do," Dale and Janes claim.
"We will address the students through their respective faculties, societies, clubs and other student groups
and try to start them to participate actively."
They pledge not only to rally the students but also
make the public more aware of the university's growing financial problems.
"The public image of universities in general needs
enhancing. We will write to community papers, visit
schoolboards, talk to the chamber of commerce and
simply try to get the public to side with the universities
in negotiating with the government," Dale and Janes
say.
Janes has sat on the president's advisory committee
on student services and the AMS elections committee,
lived on campus for three years and filled several executive positions on the Totem Park resident's association.
Dale has served as AMS assistant finance director,
president of the food services advisory committee and
sat on the Student Administrative Commission. He has
held several executive positions in AMS clubs and is
the current campus representative for the United Way.
Despite their idealism and vague views about UBC
problems, Dale and Janes exude honest sincerity to
make students aware of problems.
KRAUSEroh
Ron Krause is running as part of a slate of candidates
who share the same views and goals. For details on his
platform, read the article below.
Senate meets once a month, but unlike the board,
senators do not get a free meal on the university before
their meetings. Senators don't even get coffee to keep
them awake through the long boring proceedings.
Senate meetings, though boring, are not unimportant. Senate is responsible for determining the
academic program and standards for the university.
This task is accomplished through committees, the
senate's workhorse.
This year the student voice on senate suffered from
lack of intelligent comment by student senators at
meetings. Strong voices are needed since senate, like
the board, will have to deal with retrenchment.
Senate has 17 students: one from each faculty and
five elected at-large.
'Progressive' united slab
A five-headed beast is taking aim at providing some
sense of cohesion between student board of governors
and senate representatives.
Calling themselves a "loose coalition of concerned
individuals," they are Ron Krause, medicine 2, a
board candidate; Bob Summerbell, arts 3, and Michael
Shepard, science 3, candidates for senator-at-large;
Hciracio de la Cueva, science 4, science senator candidate; and Ken Freeman, economics grad student,
candidate for grad studies senator.
Described by some campus pundits as a
"progressive-left slate," they display a refreshing sense
of conviction and knowledge of the issues sadly lacking in many other candidates.
Giving individual descriptions of the candidates is
an impossible task, as the five were interviewed as a
group. Freeman and Krause were the most vocal
spokespersons for their platform, and the answers to
many questions turned into hybrids with all five getting in their two cents worth. Their agreement on the
major issues was demonstratably evident.
"There is too much infighting on campus — we're
falling victim to the government policy of divide and
conquer so they can get away with murder — and what
they are murdering is the quality of education,"
Freeman said.
The slate does not oppose tuition fee hikes per se —
but they charge that to raise fees while allowing a
decline in the quality and accessibility of university
education is intolerable.
"It is all well and good to say that we have the
lowest tuition fees in Canada, but we also have the
lowest housing vacancy rate and the highest cost of living," Summerbell said.
The slate was critical of administraton president
Doug Kenny for not exerting more pressure on the
provincial government for increased funding and for
acquiesing to the government in forming the retrenchment committee.  "The administration should have

THOMPSON . . . senate candidate
e again; here's the scorecard
FULKER Chris
Chris Fulker is a man for all seasons...er...elections.
Running for everthing from Vancouver city council
to Alma Mater Society executive, Fulker has finally
found a race he can win; so once again he is running
for the senator at large position.
Now that he has sat one full term on senate, Fulker
says he is disillusioned with the body and his hopes of
creating real change have diminished. But he says his
first term on senate was fun, and he wants another
shot at the job.
"I enjoy what I'm doing and it's important you get
somebody there who's realistic," Fulker says. "There
are 88 people on senate and nobody agrees on
anything. Nothing gets done, but it's still interesting."
Fulker is opposed to tuition fee increases for people
from B.C., but thinks fees should be hiked for "outsiders."
He says the problem of accessibility to higher education is worsening and should be fought now, but "I
don't know the specifics." He adds: "I'd like to control the growth of UBC right now. Cutbacks are not
neccessary if you control enrolment now."
He says students should vote for him because "I'm a
realist.''
HENDERSON Stephen
As if sitting on five senate committees wasn't
enough, Stephen Henderson wants to do it all over
again for another year.
Henderson, arts 3, is running for re-election to a student senator-at-large seat because he feels he hasn't accomplished all that he set out to do a year ago. "Now
that I know who I'm dealing with, personal contacts
can sway opinion," says Henderson.
Personal contact rates high, since Henderson feels
demonstrations and protests are not practical or effective. "I can't see demonstrating against tuition fees
as having any positive results, although they do point
out to administrators how serious students are,"
Henderson says.
He is hazy about the accessibility of education at
UBC, first saying it is accessible, then implying students have to lie more on their student loan forms, and
finally conceding there is possibly a financial barrier.
"Obviously tuition fees should go down but it's not
realistic — they have to go up," says Henderson. "It's
only reasonable to expect."
He looks earnest and concerned as he talks about his
two major concerns: limited enrolment and four year
programs. "I am strongly against restricted enrolment
in any faculty and four year program proposals for applied science and forestry because they threaten a
liberal arts education at UBC — leaving it to become
more of a professional school like the Massachuseets
Institute of Technology," he says.
Henderson feels voters should elect him because he
understands how senate works, its issues, powers and
limitations, and he knows the deans, senators and administrators.
Henderson has been a senator since February 1981,
was a member of the student administrative commission during 1980-81, SUB commissioner and
wargaming club president for the same period, an arts
representative on council and is currently a volunteer
at the Ombudsoffice.
PROVOSTsharon
Nursing student Sharon Provost doesn't even have
band-aid solutions to offer UBC students if she is
elected senator at large. While Provost believes she is
"very conscientious and will work hard," her stands
on student issues are guarded.
* tackles student issues
told the government to go to hell rather than form the
retrenchment committee," was the group consensus.
They were unsurprisingly unanimous that money
should not be a factor in preventing students from
coming to universities, and called for appropriate increases in the money allocated to grants and loans,
with Shepard suggesting increased awareness on the
problems faced by students from out of town.
hepard and Summerbell for senate
On limiting enrolment in certain faculties, Cueva
said that enrolment in the professional faculties which
were expensive to provide, should continue to be
limited according to the needs of the job market, a
decision which the group suggested should be a process
reviewed every three or five years.
The group proposed that the university approach
private business interests to gain support and funding
for more student housing. They accused current Alma
Mater Society student representatives of not putting
enough effort into dealing with the housing issue.
The coalition also called for UBC's increased participation in its involvement with other universities
across Canada. "That UBC was not a part of lasi years
student protests is disgusting," Krause said.
The slate called for increased pressuring the government, saying "You can't reason with idiots."
They would practice a policy of teamwork with
faculty and other campus groups, calling for a
collective rather than isolationist approach.
And on the issue of loyalty to students about confidential board of governors' matters, Krause said if
the board insisted an issue of concern to students be
discussed in camera, he would walk out rather than
participate. Krause added he would also inform
students about the issue. "There are very few issues
which would justify being held in camera," Krause
said.
Asked why students should vote for them, they said
"we care, and we are a united front." That they are
united is apparent, and their conviction seems to be
sincere.
"I don't think any student tactics to fight problems
in the university which are irrational will gain anything
but disfavourable attention," Provost said. She added
that channels of communication such as the student
newspaper and discussion from student representatives
should be fully exploited.
When asked about cutbacks, Provost said; "I wish I
knew what could be done. I don't have any cut and
dried answers." She added students in general don't
understand all the avenues the president's advisory
committee on retrenchment is examining.
But Provost said the university is more accessible
than most students think it is. "I think education is accessible. If you really want to do something you can."
Her past experience includes serving as sports
representative on student council in her first year, and
as a nursing representative to the health sciences student committee. Last year she received the nursing student leadership award. Provost is also currently the
Nursing Undergraduate Society secretary and a voting
member of a faculty committee.
"Vote for me because I know I can do a good job.
I've been a student here for five years and I'd like to
represent the students," she said. "It's something that
I enjoy doing."
RATZBURGwiif
Wilf Ratzburg in, in a word, mysterious. He is currently out of town and failed to appear at Thursday's
all-candidates meeting.

Michael Shepard is running as part of a slate of candidates who share the same views and goals. For
details on his platform, read the article below.

Bob Summerbell is also running as part of slate of
candidates. For details on his platform, read the article
below.
THOMPSON Mark
Mark Thompson is a person, like many, who wants
to have a greater participation in student affairs. Running for a senate position is Thompson's way of doing
so.
One of the issues that concerns Thompson is the
retrenchment committee's proposals for cutting funding of certain departments here. "The committee
should come up with alternate proposals and abandon
the ones that it has now," he said.
Another issue of concern to Thompson is the housing problems of students from outside Vancouver. He
feels the provincial government should be giving more
aid to these students to help fight the rising cost of living and criticized to the student residence increase of
20 per cent
Thompson says student enrolment should be
limited, as in professional jobs, but added that he was
not sure if engineering faculty's policy of allowing only
certain students into certain courses is right.
Thompson said there is not enough student input on
administrative issues. "Student senators are looked
upon with disdain by other senators." he said, but did
not give any suggestions as to how students could be
better heard.
When asked why students should vote for him,
Thompson replied that he has run for senate before
and has learned about the important issues concerning
UBC. He said he, "would listen to students and try to
reflect their views." Page 12

Disappointing crop
With the university facing such severe financial restraints and the quality
of education so dramatically threatened, it is disappointing to look at this
year's crop of candidates for the board of governors and senate.
Obviously power and leadership aren't popular these days. And for those
who are interested in running, many showed a shocking lack of interest
and knowledge in student concerns.
For example, Kerry Armstrong said she was running to gain experience
on the board. In these difficult times, student representation cannot afford
to go to resume hunters or well intentioned innocents wondering how the
university's decision-making bodies operate.
Dave Dale and Francis Janes, (a veritable Chip and Dale team who think
with one mind), said it is up to students to mobilize themselves. If so, what
are they planning to do on the board of governors if elected?
What we need is someone who is willing to stand up to the board of
governors and senate and put student concerns first, and co-operation
with the administration second.
Among board candidates, the only one who comes close to the needed
concern and qualifications is Ron Krause, who we support with reservations. Krause is committed to change and directly confronting the provincial government but co-operation with the administration.
But Krause, like others on the "progressive" slate, is vague about what
is an acceptable tuition fee increase, and noncommital about the strategy
of the Teaching Assistants Union in their current contract negotiations.
Senate candidates. Bob Summerbell and Michael Shepard, we also support with reservations as best choices in an otherwise dismal crop.
THE UBYSSEY
January 15, 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 administration. Member, Canadian University Press. The
Ubyssey's editorial office is in room 241k of the Student

It had been a real keen visit to Washington. Julie Wheelwright had gotten to stay in the
presidential suite at the White House Holiday Inn and they let her have cots put in for Glen
Sandford and Muriel Draaisma but drew the line when she tried to sneak Arnold Hedstrom in
after hours. Eric Eggertson, Craig Brooks and Doug Schmidt got lollipops that glow in the
dark from some real swell guys at the Pentagon, and Craig Yuill took snapshots of Shaffin
Shariff and Corinna Sundararajan standing on the steps of the Capitol building. Greg Fjteland
did get in a little trouble trying to do that nasty, perverted thing with the Washington Monument (bad boy!) but it was wonderful how Glen Schaefer cleared it all up with the police.
Nancy Campbell and Mr. Reagan got along just fine, as did Charles Campbell and Mr. Brady.
So right after we watched Sean Lafleur and his brother handily beat the Capitals (Les Canadiens sont la!) we got on the plane for the trip home, though a couple of people were worried
about whether it was safe, with the weather so bad and all. We'll smash into that bridge when
we come to it," said Verne McDonald.

Although I'm not usually on
campus Fridays this term, I may
make an exception on Jan. 22
specifically to demonstrate my non-
support for the Teaching Assistants
Union's job action. As a TA, I have
watched with increasing repugnance
the degenerating negotiations and
increasing rhetoric of the past months. Contrary to the consistently
biased reporting of The Ubyssey, it
is primarily the intransigence and irresponsibility of the TA Union that
has led to the current stalemate in
contract talks.
To my knowledge, no university
on this continent guarantees,
through grants, fellowships, work-
study programmes, or any other
means, the complete financial support of even a small percentage of
its  graduate  students;  just  as  in
undergraduate life, the student is
expected at least to some degree to
provide his/her own financial support. This is an unfortunate, but
true, fact. Yet the TA Union is
demanding precisely this kind of
full support ("a living wage"). In a
period when revenues and resources
devoted to post-secondary education are declining, and UBC

multi-million dollar shortfall, these
kinds of demands and expectations
are at the very least absurd.
The "overwhelming" TA support for a "strike" voted for in
December was strictly a vote for the
authorization to strike, not the act
itself. Even this passed by only 58
per cent of the 400 or so who voted.
This means that only 230 of the well
over 1000 TAs on campus voted in
favor of strike authorization —
hardly a huge groundswell of support. If TAU leaders were less concerned about playing union (just
like the grownups in the real world)
and more concerned about being
responsive to their constituency,
perhaps their tactics would be more
appropriate.
Speaking strictly for myself, the
difference between the wage offers
of the two sides is far less than the
difference between the lower offer
and last year's wages — which is
what I am being paid until the
dispute is resolved. It does not help
bills due this month to be promised
retroactive pay at some indeterminate future point; nor am I convinced that the greater pay the
union will "win" for me will be appreciably greater than the money
deducted from my paycheck for
union support.
I am supportive of the idea of a
union for TAs, and the UBC administration has proved many times
over that it, too, can be inflexible
and myopic. However, the tactics
of this particular union are not
deserving of support frdm either
TAs or the greater campus population.
The TAU, like many other campus groups, seems most intent on
retaining for itself the greatest
possible percentage of the rapidly
dwindling resources available at
UBC. (One might note that the only
major TAU concession thus far has
been to drop their demand for a
clause supporting quality education). Rather than fighting each
other over selfish interests, we
should all be fighting the more important battle, to preserve the quality and accessibility of education, at
the more important front, the provincial and federal arenas where the
future of post-secondary education
is being systematically gutted. I
fervently hope that all concerned
will move quickly to settle this
ridiculous TAU dispute, and get on
with the real battle.

This university is in trouble.
For the past five years the provincial government has allowed
inflation to erode the quality of
our education at UBC. This year
is no exception, and the future
looks even bleaker.
While enrolment increases at
UBC the number of teaching assistants has been cut. This hurts
not only TAs, but the quality of
your education as well: larger
classes, fewer tutorials and so
on. All this makes the TA strike
on Friday, Jan. 22, all the more
important.
Do it loudly. Do it quietly.
But please . . . support the TAs.

Vile rag mistaken in mild Klan coverage
As my name appeared in The
Ubyssey supporting a letter protesting the paper's decision to run an
interview with KKK leader Alex
McQuirter, I feel it is necessary to
clarify my position.
First of all, I did not agree with
the disruptive manner in which the
organizers of the letter chose to present the letter. I feel that The Ubyssey, as one of the finest student papers in Canada, deserves our support, and that the occupation of
The Ubyssey office and disruption
of your meeting was a stupid and
totally misdirected act.
I might add that I was certainly
never told when I signed the letter
that this protest was going to take
place and that my name would be
plastered all over campus on a
poster endorsing it. Jumping up
and down and ranting at The Ubyssey is not the way to go about it.
That being said, let me give my
reasons for signing the letter of pro
test. I feel that The Ubyssey made
an error in deciding to run the
piece. I certainly do not accuse any
of the staff of the paper of pro-Klan
or neo-Nazi leanings.
The article was not a history of
the Klan or an expose detailing its
operations on campus; it was a platform for McQuirter to stand upon
and address the students of UBC.
Being a left-winger myself, it was
easy for me to see through this man
as a dangerous racist, but from a
totally objective point of view, the
article was quite mild.
There are many people out there,
even here at UBC, who know nothing about the history of the Klan or
the horrors of Nazism. We've all
met people like them, who claim
that they're not racist, "but those
goddamned Chinks and Pakkies are
taking over!" These are the kind of
people that the Klan appeals to, and
when a feature in the media fails to
point  out  the atrocities that  the
'Young Trotskyist
gent boxes soap'
The young gentleman with his
arm raised on page nine of the Jan.
8 edition may be a familiar face to
many students. Last year this whiz
kid turned up at every meeting
where Latin American visitors had
been invited to speak on campus.
During the question periods, he attempted to take the platform out
from under the invited guests, first
by proclaiming his membership in
the Trotskyist league and then by
arrogantly outlining his magic formula for correcting all the troubles
in the world. It is no less surprising
to find superboy is also championing the fight against the KKK.
It is easy to take a fight against
the U.S. botched, bloodthirsty
military junta, that hold so many of
the southern countries down, and
to condemn the twits who wear bed-
sheets, recite cheap-logic and
engage in hypocritical activities.
But the question arises — is one
taking this stand for the protection
of others, for humanitarian
reasons, or is it simply a means to
soap box for one's own brand of
terror?
The Trotskyist kid criticized the
Nicaraguan speaker and the
students from El Salvador for not
holding his beliefs on how those
countries should be run. He struck
me as not being concerned at all
about the welfare of these people,
or of their right to self-
determination. He wants to throw
down one European ideology only
to replace it with another. Prior to
the introduction of the Europeans,
the countries of the south and central America flourished. The Trotskyist is not interested in liberating
those people from Europeanisation,
any more than he really cares about
the minorities of B.C. He wants a
soapbox, no more, no less.
Why? Finally I must conclude
this particular kid has demonstrated
repeatedly through his loud, rude,
intolerant, intimidating, domineering, and childish behavior that he
doesn't really have a clue what he
wants other than attention. I suggest that he should seek medical advice.

Yes, we want to know if the Klan paint his organization as a moder

Knowing the author of the story
well, and perhaps being involved in
its writing from the beginning,
Kevin McGee has a different perspective on the whole issue that someone like me who just picked up
the paper and read the interview. I
too have spoken with Glen Sanford
about what he called "the scariest
experience" in his life. But none of
that was in the article, and I must
say that the intention of the article
is not important, but the end result
is.
The KKK is not a political party
committed, as is the Trotskyist
League, however misguidedly, to
the well-being of the majority of the
people, whatever their race.
The KKK is an organization
founded upon the twin principles of
white supremacy and genocide. One
of their policies is the return of all
blacks to Africa. How is this to be
done? Will they be put on Love
Boat style ocean liners and be sent
off with confetti flying and handkerchiefs waving? No, this is clearly
a plan for the murder of the black
race in America. This must never be
forgotten of the Klan.
Again, while I feel that we should
be proud to have a student paper of
such high quality as The Ubyssey
serving us, I feel that in this one instance you made an error, and I
hope you will show more discretion
in the future.

Klan changes staffer 9s life
One minute you're innocently sitting in The Ubyssey office thinking
you're a solid leftist student journalist and contemplating changing
the format of 'Tween Classes and
other socially significant issues. The
next minute you're talking to the
Ku Klux Klan on the telephone and
your life changes.
Make, no mistake. Your life
changes.
The Ku Klux Klan has contacted
The Ubyssey. And of all Godawful
things, the Klan's leader, Alex Mc-
Quiriter, wants an interview. Immediate gut reaction: tell the
bastard to fuck off. Next reaction:
what does this bastard want?
Something's going on.
What do you do? You decide to
talk to the Klan's leader and find
out what he's doing at UBC. You
swallow your hatred. It's hard, but
you're a journalist and you're used
to talking to creeps you don't like.
But McQuirter is more than just a
creep you don't like. He's the most
hateful, dangerous and cruel person
you've ever talked to in your life.
You can't even listen to him. You
can't even think. You feel like
strangling him yet you sit in a quiet
and terrified daze.
You  probably  made  a  mistake
even talking to this man. You feel
queezy for a week. But you've
learned that disciples of his are forming on campus. You go through
anguish. But you decide to write a
story. The Klan is on campus and
it has got to be driven off.
So you try to express what happened in the interview. You try to
keep your irrational hatred out of
the article, and keep yourself to the
very real issue — the Klan is on
campus. Maybe you try too hard to
restrain your hatred. But at least
you let people know.

Martial Law qvashes progress in Poland
By JEROME GESSAROLI
In late December, one of the most significant crises of 1981 took place. The imposition of martial law in Poland squashed any
attempts for real social progress to be made
in an Eastern bloc state. The military
takeover suspended civil rights, and "temporarily" froze the activities of the independent trade-union movement, Solidarity.
The official disbandment and outlaw of
student unions at Polish universities,
although not the most serious event of the
crisis, is very relevant to students at our
university and others throughout the free
world. This drastic and repugnant act should
remind us of the freedoms and privileges we
all enjoy to pursue issues in which we believe.
perspectives
But such repressive action shows what is
happening in Poland, only on a much larger
scale. The Polish people have been suffering
for so long. The economy since 1945 has been
a failure. This is not due to laziness or
backwardness, but because of the apathy imposed upon the people by an inherently flawed socialist economy. But the privileged few.
the Party members, have so many special
benefits that their quality of living may rival
the West's. Corruption is so widespread that
even General Jaruzelski had to acknowledge
it.
The harsh conditions the Poles have endured are only softened by the moral support
and comfort offered by the Roman Catholic
Church. Marx once wrote that if religion
continued to flourish in a socialist system
then something in the system must be fundamentally wrong. Thus even going to
Marx's own ideas (which are usually wrong),
the Polish socialist system is indeed flawed.
After the imposition of martial law,
General Jaruzelski claimed that (1) economic
reforms would be introduced, and (2) that
concessions won by Solidarity would not be
taken away. As for the first point, the only
reforms taken so far are the massive price increases in basic foodstuffs which were finally
made possible under martial law. The second
point is also a dubious proposition. Poland
since World War II has undergone several
uprisings. At times when the authorities were
weak, the people won concessions. However,
the moment the government gained the upper
hand these new freedoms were taken away.
This time under the Solidarity movement,
steps  were  being  taken  to  institutionalize
these new reforms so they would not be snatched away again. Precisely when this was being done, the military took over.
The Polish military cannot be given the
total blame for the existing situation. The
Soviet Union with its "fraternal ties" with
Poland took an active role in the military
crackdown. It was concerned that if Solidarity became too strong the Soviet's hegemony
in Eastern Europe may be weakened. The
government and Communist Party in the
Soviet Union portrayed Polish workers to its
own people as being lazy and unwilling to
work. With more than 30,000 troops stationed in Poland and several hundred thousand
outside its border, the Poles could count orr~
their Soviet comrade "to help" if they had
to. It is widely believed that the USSR issued
Polish authorities an ultimatum. Either the
Poles stop Solidarity themselves, or it would
be done for them courtesy of Premier
Brezhnev and company.
Contrary to the aggressive and threatening
moves of the Soviets, Western countries did
what they could to bring stability to the:
strife-torn country. Huge loans were given
totalling $26,000,000,000. When the situation deteriorated, the western banks eased
the loan repayment schedule. Food was shipped by governments, the Church, and private
groups throughout Western Europe, the
United States, and Canada. Austria graciously supplied food and lodging to around one
hundred thousand Polish refugees.
The recent economic moves by president
Reagan on the military regime does not
amount to total economic isolation by the
United States. The president, rightly so,
wants to make sure the food and medicine
being shipped to Poland are getting to people
who need it. That is why such supplies, are no
longer being sent to the government in
Poland, but to agencies such as the Church
for distribution.
It is a shame to see such misery in an industrialized European country. The socialists
in the Eastern bloc states claim they are a
people's government. This latest incident in
Poland merely reinforces the fact that any
legitimacy behind the above statement has indeed been stripped away.

Correcting a falsie
Friday, January 15, 1982
I would like to try and correct the
false impression which your article,
Political unknowns vie for senate
(Jan. 7), created. While it's true
that few of the team that will represent student interests on senate have
a great deal of experience in student
politics, your statement, "All candidates running for senate positions, with the exception of Henderson, have never sat on senate or stu-

dent council before," misrepresents
the fact that about half of the candidates slated for the next term are
presently serving on senate.
Largely due to the efforts of
Doris Wong (student senator at
large), student vacancies which
hampered senate have been filled by
their constituency organizations.
The result is that an active student
caucus is presently functioning as a
training ground for next term's senators.
I think that if caucus chairperson
Richard Gyurkovits and those other
senators who regularly attend caucus sessions continue their present
efforts, the students of UBC in
82/83 will be served by an experienced, cohesive and effective lobby.

THE    UBYSSEY
Page 15
Would-be senator plugs 'concerned' candidacy
As a student and a citizen of British Columbia, I am deeply concerned about the quality of education
that is offered by this university.
While some activists and self-styled
student politicians use the office of
senator to sound off their views on
foreign politics, I will do my utmost
to represent the interests of science
students. After all, a senator is
elected to serve UBC as a senior administrative advisor.
As one of the two student representatives on the faculty of science,
I have already had the privilege to
work for this university. Being a
member of the life sciences council,
I can speak on behalf of all students
and faculty members who are concerned about the future of post-secondary education.
While B.C. has an almost unlimited potential to expand its economy
and educational facilities, politicians both in Victoria and on this
campus have sold us short. For too
many years the students and faculty
of this university have sat back and
allowed the government and its appointees to half-heartedly develop
our post-secondary educational system.
Despite the need for an improved
system, governments past and pre
sent have allowed education to stagnate. Already our per capita number of post-secondary students is
far below the Canadian and Ameri
can averages. But now
tends to make mattei
transferring even more
of its educational budg
Victoria in-
s worse by

ets and into
One more time... no cutbacks
This is a copy of a letter sent to
the UBC Board of Governors:
Any cutbacks in post-secondary
education can only injure B.C. This
university is not an island on its
own. As an educational institution,
UBC has to fit in as an integral part
of an economic machine which will
propel B.C. towards the realization
of its great potential.
Victoria intends to implement a
massive rise in tuition fees, increases as high as 60 per cent next
year and perhaps greater in subsequent years. Increased tuition fees
and the elimination of educational
programs are this government's
solution to the fiscal shortages
which will face universities in the
1980's.
Already the per capita number of
B.C. post-secondary students is far
below   both   the   Canadian   and
American averages. Massive increases in tuition fees, if not matched by similar rises in student
assistance, will only serve to further
lower the level of participation at
technical institutes, universities and
community colleges.
Full-time post-secondary
students have only four months or
less in which to earn sufficient
monies to cover living expenses and
tuition fees for the subsequent
calendar year. In Vancouver, this
situation is aggravated by the shortage of available student housing
and the generally higher cost of living as compared to other Canadian
cities. At the present rime, an
undergraduate student faces a
minimum of $5400 per year in living
expenses ($450 a month) as well as
at least an additional $1000 for tuition and books. Student loans,
although generally difficult to obtain, would cover at most 55 per
cent of these costs as the maximum
loan has been set at $3800 per year.
If tuition fees are raised more than
an amount reasonable to cover the
effects of inflation, the added
economic strain placed on self-
supporting students will prevent
many from completing their education. This can't help but have a
detrimental effect on the province
as a whole.
To conclude this letter, the Alma
Mater Society biochemistry student's association strongly urges the
board of governors to bring the
concerns of our members and the
majority of the student body to the
attention of the provincial government and support us in our opposition to educational cutbacks.

To each his own, believe it
In Bill Wilkinson's letter on Jan.
8 he points out correctly that a faith
should not be judged by the actions
and views of some of its proponents. "The Church," he says,
"also has done its share of damage
at times. . ." Well yes, I'd say that
burning people at the stake and torturing them for not converting to
the 'true faith' could be called
damage. I'd say that encouraging
pogroms and Easter massacres
might be construed as damaging.
You might call the crusades fairly
damaging too. Also chopping down
totem poles and forbidding an ancient people their native dances.
But gee whiz, forgive and forget.
It's old news for heaven's sake.
Some might say these people
weren't behaving like typical Christians. Others could argue that they
were very typical.
Someone handy with cat-
chphrases once decided that the
word gospel was a synonym for
truth — and so the Jews were to be
damned forever who'd read a little
about the history of the times, the
place, and Pontius Pilate. Now just
for the record, if Ponius Pilat had
washed his hands every time he intended to spill innocent blood he'd
have spent a lot of time in the
washroom.
Mr. Wilkinson, you make some
good points, but you assume that a
rejection of Jesus is a rejection of
God. Not so. God is God. God is
one. But I don't think that anyone
who believes otherwise will go to
'hell.' But you say, "God is perfect
while man is imperfect and thus we
need Jesus Christ to change our
ways." No. Not everyone needs to
communicate with God in the same
way. Some people don't feel they
need to comunicate with God. They
are not damned.
The Buddhists have their road to
inner peace and harmony. Their
road isn't entirely mine, but I
respect it, and I'm doubly encouraged to do so because they
don't try to get at me every time I
switch on my T.V., walk around the
campus, or wander around
downtown. Respect engenders
respect.
Every faith feels it's special.
Every faith is. There is no simplistic
truth and it certainly isn't to be
found in the new 'Dick and Jane go
to Bible Class' trend in proselytizing. A Fundamentalist Christian on
campus once told me that the only
words anyone needed to read in
order to understand Christianity
were to be found in the gospels.
Narrow thinking. The events
described in the gospels were not
happening out of context of time.
History was going on in, out and
around them (and the gospels were
written long after them.)
Mr. Wilton Steinberg, in his handy little book, Basic Judaism page
99, points out a fundamental
Jewish belief, "Anyone may
become a Jew; but no one has to do
so in order to be saved, whether in
this world or the next," and "the
righteous of all peoples have their
share in the world to come."
But let's give the (almost)last
word to Paul of Tarsus, who'd have
wanted it that way. "He that
disbelieveth (he means 'in Christ')
shall be condemned." That's not
God talking, it's an intolerant man.

the payment of unnecessary debts.
The foundations for these cutbacks were laid last year when the
government, through the ministry
of science, communication and universities, and the Universities Council of B.C., tightened its control
over the details of university spend-
ings. Wednesday's edition of UBC
Reports merely made official this
fait accompli.
While the current senate apparently failed to foresee this development, a large number of concerned
students have already taken action.
As an active member of the biochemistry students association and
the science undergraduate society, I
helped to organize the letter writing
campaign which urged the board of
governors to oppose educational
cutbacks and the mega-rises in tuition fees.
Through my numerous contacts
in the lecture halls and the SUS soccer  team,  I  know  that  there are
many students who are very concerned about the future of this university. Students are not as apathetic as the administration would
like us to believe.
What we need are senators who
will shake the senate out of its stupor. We can't afford any more of
these clones who regurgitate trendy
slogans upon such irrelevant topics
as Latin America, before burying
themselves in obscurity for months
on end.
UBC and indeed B.C. as a whole,
must have a senate which will act as
a defender of this university. This
can only be accomplished if we elect
senators who are truly concerned.
Our failure to do so will ensure that
the senate will remain as a silent witness to the slow strangulation of
post-secondary education in British
Columbia.

'System breeds apathy'
Something is obviously wrong. It
seems that most students don't even
know the name of the president of
the alma mater society. If the AMS
is supposed to be the organ which
circulates information about student issues and pumps enthusiasm
amongst students, it's definitely apparent that they aren't succeeding.
True, some of the problems certainly may be attributed to the
apathy of individual students, but
the central question still remains,
why are the students so apathetic?
It's the responsibility of the AMS to
inform students and to represent
student interests.
How many students, though, are
really aware of issues like tuition fee
increases, the quality of education,
the on-campus housing problems,
the TA union's conflict with the ad-
ministration?
Perhaps the university is a mere
microcosm of the indifference
manifest within society at large.
Perhaps the whole system
perpetuates apathy. If so, it's time
for a change.
How long will we be passively
manipulated by external forces
such as faculty and administration?
We have fertile grounds for
something good to develop out of
student activism. Effective action
needs to be taken now!

Chilean Solidarity
The Petition of Chile On June 18,
1981, the CNS, Coordinadoa
Nacional Sindical (National Trade
Inion Council) submitted to junta
leader General Agusto Pinochet the
petition of Chile. This document
Contains the main demands of the
working people of Chile.
The Petition of Chile represents
the aspirations of more than one
million working people united in
5(30 trade union organizations. The
document has been signed by more
than 2,000 trade union officials
headed by the names of ten leading
representatives of the CNS at the
national level
Main demands of the petition of
Chile
» A 31 percent wage readjustment
for the workers and a minimum
wage of 9,860 pesos per month (US
$270). At present, the minimum
wage is 1,300 pesos (US $33).
• An end to repression, torture
and expulsion. Definitive information on the situation of disappeared
prisoners must be made available.
• Annulment of the: transitional
article number 24 of the Pinochet
constitution giving the regime extreme posers for oppression.
» Reinstitution of labour courts
and the unlimited right to negotiation and to strike.
• Abolition of all laws prohibiting the free exercise of trade
union rights.
• Fierce resistance to the denationalization of copper and other
national resources of the country.
• The right of the people in exile to live in their native land.
The petition of Chile in its introduction states that these demands are
minimum demands compared with
the total demands of the Chilean
working people. At the same time,
they manifest their determination to
go on struggling against oppression
and injustice, against unemployment and hunger and for the
restoration of freedom and
democracy.
After a press conference organized on July 6 by nine leading
representatives of the CNS in order
to publicise the petition of Chile,
Pinochet gave orders to detain:
Manual Bustos (president),
Alamiro Guzman (general
secretary), Manuel Jimenez, Sergio
Freyhofer, Hernan Jofre, Luis
Suarez, Humberto Vergara,
Jose Verasay, Carlos Opazo and
Arturo Martinez (vice-president).
They were charged with the
distribution of subversive ideas and
of illegally representing the
workers; at present, two of the nine
trade union officials, Manuel
Bustos and Alamiro Guzman, are in
prison, the other have been released
on probation.
Solidarity has to be mobilized for
• The immediate and unconditional release of the CNS representatives.
• Broad support for the petition
of Chile expressing the just aspiration of the working people and all
the people of Chile.
• Support for actions carried,
out by Chilean workers confronted
by the refusal of the dictatorship to
agree to their just demands.
• Support for the hunger strike
in response to the poisoning of five
political prisoners by the regime,
one of whom has already died.

High pressure offends
This is a response to Dave
Harper's letter, Maranatha Jives,
Jan. 8.
Although not a member of
Maranatha, I did attend a couple of
their recruiting sessions with Rice
Broocks and I object to Harper's
comments on the Ubyssey article
Nov. 17.
First, Harper suggests that the article, "presented falsities many
times." Upon rereading the article I
am unable to detect any "falsities"
at all. Perhaps Harper could
enlighten us as to what they are.
Harper tells us that "a cult is a
group whose teachings do not jive
with the Bible." As a Christian, I
find this statement offensive. Jiving
with the Bible has little or no
relevance in determining what a cult
is. Many people would consider
Jonestown a cult, yet it had a "basic
Christian (or Biblical) background.
Also, does Harper seriously consider the millions of Moslems, Hin-
PANGO PANGO (UNS) — Hor-
rified inordinately puce blorgs expressed indignation at the rising
cost of inflation. "Inflation is getting so expensive only the rich can
afford it!" flatulently infatuated
rookie blorg Moral Dogma drawled
with a deep-back nasal twang.
Groups of exceptionally puce citizens of this tiny island kingdom
writhed in the streets to protest imperial monarch Dog Kennel's proclamation that citizens pay more
clams for less instruction in the anal

dus and other members of non-
Biblical religions as members of
cults? Somehow that would surpass
logic.
The Webster definition of a cult
is: 1) a system of religious worship;
2) devoted attachment to a person,
principle, etc. Notice the lack of
reference to the Bible in these
definitions. One could even say that
Christianity falls under this definition. After all, most Christians have
a "devoted attachment" to Jesus.
However, most people would think
of a cult as detrimental to society,
hopefully excluding most major
denominations.
Harper's letter suggests that The
Ubyssey article "makes a faulty
generalization" in stating that
"some parents object to dramatic
personality changes ..." This is
not a generalization. Only some of
the parents objected, not all. Many
people were and are concerned
about Maranatha's activities,
especially suggestions that members
of Maranatha disassociate
themselves from non-Maranathans,
including parents and friends.
Harper says that the article contradicts itself in suggesting that
Maranatha is not involved in issues
as are many religious groups. But it
is not apparent that Maranatha is
active in fighting for human rights.
Rice's association with
"Washington for Jesus" suggests a
group trying for mass conversions
to his brand of Christianity, not
necessarily anything to do with major social issues.
In conclusion, I would like to
commend The Ubyssey staff for
reporting on potentially harmful
organizations. Whether or not
Maranatha is a "cult" has yet to be
firmly decided, but the fact remains
that Maranatha uses high pressure
recruiting techniques commonly used by cults and seems to be offensive to a large portion of the UBC
community.

Contorted
gymanfics
If contortions and unnatural acts
with a human body are your bag
you won't want to miss out on the
manipulations of muscle over mat
in the Osborne Centre gymnastics
gym tonight at 6.
We don't know what event is taking place, but it should be as good
as the women's gymnastics meet
taking place between UBC, the
University of Alberta and the
University of Calgary at the same
time in the same place.
Ronald Raygun
Often as you take a moment out
of your busy life to quietly contemplate cosmic mysteries, you
find yourself musing about the exact effects of thermonuclear
weapons on your skin, spleen and
pancreas. Today you can get the
answers.
At noon in SUB 205, Students
for Peace and Mutual Disarmament
will be presenting a videotape from
the Physicians for Social Responsibility. It's called The Last
Epidemic and it portrays the
dangers and horrors of nuclear war,
which is hazardous to your health
and not the faddish bit of harmless
fun Ronald Reagan would have you
think it is.
S€aHe barfe
There was a horde of
students in Scarfe
Who really made everyone
larf;
They fought off stagnation.
Those twerps in education.
By having a week on their
beharf.
You will notice we did not use
the word barf to describe Education
Week, which begins Monday with
Dean Dan's Den in Scarfe 4, from
11:30 until 1:30 p.m., continuing
Tuesday  with   a  forum   on   child
abuse at noon in Scarfe 209. The
beat goes on Wednesday with a
beheer garden at noon in the Scarfe
lounge, occurring simultaneously
with a gong show. On Thursday it's
BCTF day, commemorating all the
TFs in B.C. Catch that one in
Scarfe Lounge at noon.
Inframacfness
You've got until 4 p.m. today —
that's this very day, in case you
were going to give me that line
about starting fresh on Monday —
to get down to War Memorial gymnasium and get registered for intramurals.
You can get ounces off at
women's basketball, play pounds
away at volleyball, drop drama and
grams during suppertime softball,
crop calories in men's curling or fling flesh playing rugby. It all makes
you sweat and it's all fun, too.
So drop that fudge malted and
jog over to War Memorial 203 while
you can still fit through the door.

NOW, A NEW
BURGER THAT'S
MORE BURGER
THAN
BUN
Introducing the new hamburger from the DAIRY QUEEN
BRAZIER store. In a new "six to a pound" size that really
gives you some meat for your money. Instead of a banquet of
bun
You see, while other burger chains
get as many as ten hamburgers from a
pound of peef, we get only six. And
that gives you "more burger than
bun." A burger that's tender,
deliciously-cooked. Every time. The
new burger from DAIRY QUEEN
BRAZIER.
