■~sy books
uy is
musty and easy to
become lost in. There is also an
ominous symptom of the overcrowding plaguing UBC's library
system there. A whole area of
shelves, enough for thousands of
books, stands completely empty.
The shelves were cleared last
summer when 100,000 books were
put into storage, where they are unavailable on a regular basis. This
was necessary to make room for the
books UBC will acquire this year
and to allow books all over the library to be spaced out more on the
shelves so they don't get damaged
as easily.
For many years now, stopgap
measures such as this have been required to deal with UBC library's
ever expanding collection. A radical
transformation will be required next
year.
The system is bursting at the
seams so badly it will have completely run out of space, even for
storage, by 1988, says head librarian Douglas Mclnnes.
"Except for the most recently
constructed campus branch libraries, most of UBC's library space is
functionally inadequate, almost incapable of reorganization, and in
certain instances unsafe by current
building and fire codes," he wrote
in his 1983 report to senate.
The certain instances he was
thinking of include Main library,
which does not conform to current
fire safety standards. Any other
changes to the building would require first bringing it in line with the
fire code standards — a $6 million
proposition according to William
Watson, assistant librarian for public services. Bringing it up to code
would also reduce available space,
he says.
Watson was in charge of library
physical planning and development
until that department was abolished
in a 1982 round of retrenchment.
"A library is considered at full
working capacity when the shelves
are about 85 per cent full, but in
many places we're already well beyond that," he says, adding that the
whole system will be at or above
that level by 1988.
The realization that the library is
overflowing is nothing new. Various small measures, including a
processing centre building completed in 1982, have been tried. And a
complete long-term solution was examined in a 1980 report to senate
from the Larkin committee on the
future needs of the library.
The report said new construction
costing around $50 million was required to solve the library's need
for constant stopgap measures.
The Larkin report introduced
various proposals, all involving retaining Main library's central heritage core, the original UBC library
structure on campus. "Plan A" is a
set of plans to centralize the library
around where Main and Sedgewick
libraries are now; "Plan B," which
is less expensive, decentralizes the
system with a science library on the
east side of Main mall, just south of
the Zoology building.
Plan A involve either building
two underground wings joining
Main and Sedgewick libraries on either side of the bowl between the
two libraries, or a complete new
central library around and to the
By STEPHEN WISENTHAL
west of what is now Sedgewick library.
The problem with any scheme
which retains the current Main library is the poor layout of its space
— major renovation or replacement
of the stacks is required to bring it
up to modern library standards. Replacement runs into problems;
much of the stack area was built as
recently as the 1960s with some
money from private donors who
would object to having their gifts
pulled down, explains Mclnnes.
The area west of Sedgewick is filled with 40-year-old temporary
structures including the Math, Old
Administration and Old Auditorium buildings, whose functions
would have to be relocated at some
expense if the library were placed
there, he adds.
The second plan, building a science library some distance to the
south of the present library, is one-
third cheaper, costing about $15
million, says Mclnnes. But it would
in no way address the design and
safety problems of Main library.
Mclnnes stresses Plan B would be
a solution to the space shortage and
a good thing for science and engineering students, but would only add
six or seven years to the eventual
filling of the system. And by further
decentralizing the system, it would
increase costs, he says.
The report recommended Plan A
and suggested the two underground
wings be built first for $50 million
and the Main library be renovated
or largely replaced as the next stage.
Eventually construction would
spread to the Math building's current location.
The report was presented to the
UBC board of governors and then
to the Universities Council of B.C.
in 1981.
Despite the urgency of the library's space crunch, not much has
happened since the Larkin report,
Mclnnes says. The report was prepared, he adds, with great effort by
many people in 1979-80 before being submitted.
"The unacceptable thing was the
cost," he says. "It's a great deal of
money for any kind of project and
I'm not sure that compared with
Expo we can compete." Mclnnes,
four years after the problem was
recognized as urgent, seems resigned to the lack of money and activity.
UCBC chair Bill Gibson agrees
the problem is with the shortage of
money. (The UCBC is the coordinating body for all universities in
B.C., with responsibility for divid
ing funds among the institutions.
"There won't be a financial solution available (to solve the library
space shortage by building anything) for the next five years," Gibson says.
Gibson claims the shortage of
money has hit the whole province,
and denies universities are being
given a lower priority than other
provincial expenses.
The lack of funds for library expansion, he says, is a shame because
of the "excellent job the library
does for B.C.," pointing out that
UBC's library is used by people
from all over B.C. and is a large net
lender in interlibrary loans.
He feels the UBC library should
be seen as an important provincial
resource which "is the most important project of universities now."
But he has his own vision of how
the development should be handled.
Labelling the Larkin report plan
"a disaster" because it involves
knocking down and replacing wings
of the Main library and "alumni
will not put up with the
destruction." He has his own plan:
to build a science library on the old
bookstore site and gradually expand over the next 30 to 50 years to

the Math buildings area.
He says the minimum five years
before there is any funding available should be used to plan a library
system for post-secondary education in B.C.
He sees no solution in the near
future to the current overflowing
shelves, saying only that books
without space for them will have to
go to warehouses, even off campus
if no other space can be found.
Gibson's words do not help Mclnnes, who does . not like the
thought of taking books off the
shelves to create more room.
"Storage is a very poor substitute
for having materials on the stacks,"
he says.
The costs of storage are large.
Each book removed has to be re-
catalogued at a cost of $2 per book,
says Mclnnes, adding staff have to
spend time fetching books, detracting from their other work and creating an inconvenience to students.
And damage is a risk as books are
stuffed in tightly or piled on top of
each other.
UBC president George Pedersen
has no solutions either.
"There is no question that there
is a serious need for relief within the
next three years," he says.
Given provincial funding cuts in
the last few years, he adds, money
for libraries is unlikely for the next
five years. UBC has no money for
projects for two years, he says.
But the continuing shortage of
space is a sign of one good thing.
The already large and respected
UBC library (second in Canada behind the University of Toronto library and 34th in North America),
continues to grow and so far the acquisition budget has not been slashed amidst rounds of UBC cutbacks,
although neither has the budget increased to keep pace with inflation.

This means that the collection,
now standing at 2.3 million volumes, continues to grow by 100,000
volumes per year, according to Mclnnes.
This creates an annual need for
10,000 usable square feet of space.
For comparison, the proposed science library would add 30,000 additional square feet.
More usable stack space could
have been added when the library's
seventh floor was vacated by the
move of the library processing centre to its own building last year, but
the fire marshal said the space was
unsafe for public access.
A major new library building
would solve all these problems and
also make operating the library
cheaper than it is in the rambling
Main library, says Mclnnes, adding
this would mean longer opening
hours would be possible. A central
exit like the one in Sedgewick library requires much less staff to
control circulation.
Mclnnes says there is some hope
the new library can be built if a
donor is found for half the cost because the province might be persuaded to put up the other half. Until then he can see only one stopgap
solution after another and he worries about the viability of any emergency measures as the space situation becomes even more critical
year by year.

Student hit hard by late loan loss
By ROBERT BEYNON
UBC's awards office is only now
notifying students who received
conditional acceptance they do not
qualify for B.C. student loans.
Dave Ball, arts 2, said Thursday
he just received a letter notifying
him because he only passed 10
course units last year does not
qualify for the loan.
The B.C. loan program consists
of a federal and provincial part.
The provincial part requires
students take at least 80 per cent of
a full course load — 12 course units
— the previous year.
Ball said he has now seen this rule
on the third page of the loan guide
but he wants to know why the
awards office did not notify him
sooner.
He said if he does not get the
$1,641 he expected to receive from
the B.C. program in January he will
have to drop out of school.
"But if I do that I won't be able
to return to school next year
because I'll receive a failing grade in
all my courses and will be ineligible
for a student loan," Ball said. UBC
assigns a failing grade to students
who drop a course after the initial
two to three week registration
period.
Ball said according to loan
regulations, six months after dropping out of school he'll have to start
paying back the federal portion of
the student loan he borrowed this
year, over $3,000.
"I can't understand why the
awards office did not contact me
sooner," Ball said. "1 applied for
my loan in late June and was
awarded it in August. They had all
this time to warn me."
The awards office even awarded
him work study worth $700, he
said.
The awards office told him they
could not affirm if he qualified for
the B.C. loan portion until now
because   they   did   not   know   his
marks from last year, Ball said, adding this confuses him because he
learned his marks from UBC early
this summer.
Due to this problem Ball said he
is angry at both the provincial
government and the awards office.
"Why is the provincial criterion dif
ferent from both the federal and
university criterion?" he said.
He added he plans to raise hell,
get all the media coverage he can
and contact his MLA to change his
situation.
Awards office representatives
were not available for comment.
Charter based on inequity
By PATTI FLATHER
The Canadian Charter of Flights
fits into the discriminatory U.S.
tradition of equality laws based on
white male standards, a specialist
on sex discriminiation and the law
said Thursday.
U.S. lawyer Catherine McKinnon
told 250 people in Law 101-102 that
in both the U.S. and Canada the

gender question is seen as one of
differences.
Women can either be the same as
or different from men "but we're
still being measured compared to
men," she said. McKinnon, currently at the Law School of Minnesota and a former professor at
Harvard and Yale, said this view of
equality is "phallocentric."
McKinnon said the gender
question is fundamental to the principle of equality. "Gender is a question of dominance. Men have
power and women do not and that's
a big difference."
She said ideas of equality have
advanced little since Aristotle proclaimed likes should be treated
alike. This attitude has drawbacks,
she said, as in the cast jf pregnancy.
"You can be hurt (discriminated
against) because you're a pregnant
woman and no one will see that it's
because you're a woman," she said.
While many people realized the
racism of the WW II internment of
Japanese Canadians, discrimination
based on a biological fact such as
pregnancy escapes many, she said.
McKinnon said the Canadian
Charter did not consider access to
abortions an equality issue because
no one saw pregnancy in this way.
The male standard for equality
becomes evident, she said, when
women try to advance — only
women with "male biographies",
including a lack of young children
— can qualify.
McKinnon said it is an illusion
that when women do get special
treatment before the law they are
much better off.
She cited protective U.S. labor
laws for women which managed
"to protect women out of a lot of
job opportunities." Women must
meet any special requirements for a
job, such as lifting 80 pounds, or
publishing research as a professor,
but men may be exempted by vir-
ture of being men, she said.
"You really do have to be twice
as good."
McKinnon said she feels when
women try to do the same things
men can do, such as join the
militay, men do not find it as fun or
value it anymore.
"1 really get the impression
they'd rather not fight the wars
than to have us doing it with
them," she said.
McKinnon cited U.S. statistics on
the large percentage of women
raped and harassed, and who
become prostitutes, adding the pornography industry makes sex differences and hierarchy sexy.
"It seems nothing is being done
about any of this. Really nothing."
"You can call that the sex difference if you want to. I think it is
being a member of a targeted
group."
McKinnon told the audience,
mostly law students, that they
should tackle the law's inequities.
When she announced her principle
that the subordination of women to
men be abolished, the audience applauded.
Denike says prayer
law should not end
By VICTOR WONG
You cannot end prayer in the
schools, a geography professor running for Vancouver school board
says.
Non-Partisan Association candidate Kenneth Denike said the Public Schools Act authorizing recitations of the Lord's Prayer at the
opening of the school day should be
enforced.
But he said he would like revision
to the Act. Denike said the revision
would be more multicultural in nature, with the use of interfaith prayers instead of just Judeo-Christian
prayers. ^
"There are over 90 different cultures represented in the school system, so the prayers would have to
be more interfaith, rather than
more interdenominational," he
said.
Denike   said   the   B.C.   School
Law, medical students to protest library hour cuts
By ROBERT BEYNON
Law and medical students will
be protesting cutbacks in library
hours Monday, Nov. 19.
Tim Holmes, Law Students
Association protest committee
member, said Thursday the LSA is
still convincing other faculties'
societies and associations to join the
protest.
Holmes said the students will
meet at the law building and proceed to Main library where they will
present a petition to UBC president
George Pedersen.
"We'll also be presenting a donation (to help UBC finance more
library hours)," Holmes said. He
said the Medical Students' Union
will present a petition to the president.
The law students' move is an advanced one for UBC, Holmes said.
He added he expected almost all law
students will sign the petition but
said he did not know how many will
attend the protest.
"The LSA expects a magnificently large turnout, though," he said.
Holmes said the LSA will try
to make the protest a media event
and attract local newspapers and
television stations to the protest.
The LSA decided at an earlier
general meeting to protest the
elimination of 15 weekend and
evening hours per week this year in
the Law library. A committee set at
the LSA meeting planned the protest and approached other groups to
join.
LSA ombudsperson Theresa
Stowe earlier told The Ubyssey the
LSA will approach students in professional faculties such as medicine
and engineering particularly.
The LSA earlier voted to donate
funds to pay half the costs of adding five extra hours a week to the
law library's November hours. The
law faculty provided the other half
of the funds.
The protest will be UBC's first
major student protest this year.
Trustees Association's position that
the regulation be scrapped and replaced by a religious studies program is unacceptable though.
"That's going too far," he said.
Not only would a deletion be more
complicated than a revision, but
such a program would involve introducing an entirely new set of
courses into the school system, he
said.
"Not only would we have to examine Christian, Jewish and Muslim studies," he said, "but we
would have to look at Hindu studies
and Sikh studies as well. I don't
think the East Indian community
here would accept it."
Denike said it would be impossible to delete the section completely
because it would involve going
through the legislature. "A revision
would be strictly an order-in-coun-
cil, within the ministry," he said.
Denike added he thought he was
quoted out of context in a Nov. 2
Sun article. In the article Denike
and fellow NPA candidate Hope
Witherspoon were quoted as saying
"prayer has never hurt anybody"
and that section 164 of the Public
Schools Act which authorizes the
Lord's Prayer at the school day's
opening should be enforced.
Section 164, enacted in 1922 but
now largely ignored, states that the
school day must be opened with a
passage of scripture from the Bible
followed by a recitation of the
Lord's Prayer. It was recently
brought into controversy when a
West Vancouver parent demanded
enforcement of the section by the
local school board. Page 4

An ominous shortage
An ominous thing is happening
to UBC's libraries.
There is no more room for books.
And no more money to make room
with.
The large and well-respected
Main library must acquire new
books and journals to keep up to
date, and it has apparently achieved
this relatively well despite the dollar
crunch.
But the space solution, putting
older books into storage, at a price
of $2 per book and at the risk of
damaging them is unacceptable.
Not only will many previously
available works disappear, but the
time library staff spend taking them
off the shelves cuts into the
budgets for other work, such as
servicing students.
This is not a solution. And the
comments of the chair of the
Universities Council of B.C. stretch
this non-solution to its limits. Bill
Gibson says books without space
must be carted off to warehouses if
there is no more campus space.
It is sad that the only glimmer of
hope head librarian Douglas Mclnnes sees is in some private donor
covering part of the cost of a library
expansion perhaps persuading the
tightfisted province to pitch in.
The loss of these books, and
doubtless many more in the future,
is a real shame not worth both the
financial and educational costs.
On protest
Protest is a valualbe tool when other options are exhausted. Most people
will not protest until this is true.
Take the law students. They have decided to protest cutbacks only
when law library hour cuts endanger their ability to complete assignments.
Even then they decided to hold a mild protest, a walk from their faculty's
building to the Main library where they will present a petition to UBC's
president.
It is mild, but it must be seen as likely the first in a number of protests by
students who feel their personal and collective futures are threatened.
It is a good sign that traditionally conservative law and medical students
are organizing this protest. UBC's problems are cutting deep.
We can only hope other student groups realize the importance of protest
to groups as socially weak as students.

Structure biased against student voices
By JOSEPH RUTHERFORD
Senate. The penultimate frontier.
This is the voyage of the 1984 student senate caucus. Its one year
mission — to lepie^eni   ludents on
the university senate, to inform
students on academic issues which
directly affect them, to boldly go
where few students have gone
before!
Senate is the university body invested with the powers to regulate
and effect change in all academic
matters concerning the university.
In the triad of university policy
makers, the senate occupies the
middle position between departmental and faculty committees and
the board of governors.
Departmental committees draft
policy which is pertinent to that
department; committees at the
faculty level serve the same purpose. The board of governors, being the pinnacle of the triad, has the
power to approve or send back any
resolution which has been passed by
senate.
Senate serves as an intermediary,
directing the departments and
faculties into a network which connects to the board of governors.
Senate streamlines the policy making process by serving as a forum
for the discussion of policy.
Student representation on the
senate is not ideal. A total of 17
students, one elected by each faculty and five elected by the student
body, represent the 25,000 graduate
and undergraduate students of the
university.
The ratio of students to non-
students is 17 to 70; this four to one
ratio favouring faculty limits the
success of any student introduced
motion to senate. Since students are
in the minority, they must gently
work their way through the senate
system rather than upset the status
quo.
The composition of senate is
decreed by the University Act,
chapter 419, part 7, section 34, and
the bias against students is inherent
in the composition. A change in the
structure of senate is unlikely since
any   alteration   can   only   be   ac
complished through an act of the
provincial legislative assembly.
It is the structure of senate which
provides it with stability, a stability
that was present during the term of
president Kenny. With new leadership in senate under president
Pedersen, and with a large turnover
in faculty members, this stability
has given way to instability. As a
result, this session of senate will be
spent by members attempting to
define their positions on senate.
Due to the novelty of senate for
many members, the situation for
student members is rather grim.
They can expect no substantial
gains and will probably suffer due
to the inexperience of the present
senate.
During this session, senate will
have to deal with such specific
issues as declining first year enrolment, decreased funding and
course/program cancellations. The
senate regulates and recommends
changes in these matters and in all
academic matters. Committees are
established to deal with such matters as admissions, appeals on
academic standing, budget, curriculum, student appeals on
academic discipline and the university library.
Student representation does extend to these committees, but the
ratio of students to non-students is
identical to that present in senate.
This bias in senate and in its
committees leads to the degrading
of student positions on senate to
those of information disseminators.
The dissemination of information is
essential, but the critical examination which student members should
apply to senate matters is more so.
Without this application, the
usefulness and effectiveness of student positions on senate are lost.

of the student senate caucus who is
from the agriculture faculty.

university community.
Letters
Media too quick to condemn Sikh emotions
We, the Sikh Students' Association of UBC, are appalled at the
stance the media have taken against
the Sikhs after the recent assassination of Indian leader Indira Gandhi. The media have been very quick
to conclude that all Canadian Sikhs
are rejoicing at the incident, but
they have failed to find the reasons
behind these reactions.
The death of Indira Gandhi is a
direct result of the invasion of the
Golden Temple on June 3, 1984.
The desecration of the Sikhs'
holiest shrine seared through the
hearts of Sikhs all over the world.
None had dared to enter before
with their shoes on for fear of
disrespect to the Sikh scriptures,
but thousands of soldiers invaded
the temple, and caused the deaths
of many people, over 800 of them
innocent women and children.
If the purpose of this invasion
was to flush out a few "terrorists"
residing within the temple, could
Indira Gandhi not have used other
less violent methods and was it
necessary to attack 47 other temples
across India?
The deaths of many innocent
people could have been prevented
by simply cutting off all food and
water supplies going into the temple, thereby forcing these so-called
terrorists out. Gandhi instead
perpetuated a crime against the
Sikhs which will never be forgotten
or justified.
The reaction of Sikhs to this horrendous incident is analogous to the
expected reaction of the Roman
Catholics if the Vatican was invaded by the Italian government, or
that of the Moslems to the invasion
of Mecca.
Gandhi's assassination has
resulted in an upsurge of comments
from the public, many of whom
condemn violence and bloodshed in
general. Why did we not hear from
these people when so much boodsh-
ed occurred in Punjab during the
storming of the temple, and when
some Hindus in India and Canada
rejoiced at the mass slayings? The
conflict was between the Sikhs and
the Indian government.
But was it justifiable for the Hindus to react and contribute to the
Hindu-Sikh conflict? Gandhi's actions can be no more rationalized
than those of Hitler's, and the
world rejoiced at the death of
Hitler.
Many of the Sikhs who openly
demonstrated had direct family ties
with the victims of this genocide. Is
it not human nature to react to the
death of an oppressor and tormentor?

Soviet occupations, 'terrorism'
contradict desire for peace
It was certainly reassuring to find
out that according to political scientist Jane Sharp the USSR is sincere
in wanting peace and is only concerned about its security from the
Germans and the Chinese (Soviets
sincere about arms, Oct. 23). This
of course is the reason for its
40-year occupation of Eastern
Europe; its bloody suppression of

East Germany and Poland; its support of terrorism around the world,
and of such sterling anti-German
defenders as Libya; and the use of
its various surrogates in Africa and
in Rome.

the Soviets' foreign policy (let's

Shortages lead to college cuts
By ERIN MULLAN
Underfunding by the provincial
government is forcing Capilano
College to phase out community-
oriented programs and services.
The women's access centre and
the adult basic education program
are two areas facing elimination.
A planning update submitted to
the education ministry by college
principal Paul Gallagher says funding cuts mean the college must reassess its orientation and goals.
The report — a yearly update on
the college's five-year plan required
by the provincial government —
says the college will cut back support services such as counselling,
beef up technological training, and
shut down adult basic education
and the women's centre.
Gallagher said the college intends
to maintain services in the manner
best suited to students.
"The college is asking if it would
Former general
says go neutral
By DAVID MAGOWAN
"You can be pretty sure you're
all going to live long and fruitful
lives on this planet," a retired air-
force major general told 40 people,
"but you're all going to have to
work hard to restore sanity."
Leonard Johnson told a Wednesday meeting in SUB 207/209 that
Canadians, especially young Canadians, must reassess the role of the
armed forces and Canada's role in
NATO. He said NATO has
marginal influence on Canada's
defense.
Johnson said, "The case for
membership in NATO is commonly
made on the assumption that
Canada cannot afford to defend
itself." But Johnson said if Canada
used the money it spends on NATO
to upgrade its forces at home, for
example its obsolete navy, it could
present a viable defense.
"Our position is better than
Sweden's or Switzerland's," said
Johnson. "We should take a good
look at whether we want to be
neutral."
Johnson said a strengthened
Canadian armed forces on our own
soil would contribute to a more
secure North America, and would
greatly aid our allies. He also said
Canada's ill-equipped and poorly
funded forces overseas would be of
little use in a crisis.
And if Cymada was neutral, it
would not feel pressured to agree to
such things as cruise missile training, said Johnson. He said a treaty
with the Soviet Union restricting the
cruise missile should be the West's
top priority.
"It is not so much the cruise
missile that is the problem," said
Johnson, "but it is the beginning of
something. It is cheap — mass production is easy — and it has deadly
accuracy."
One cruise missile warhead is
up to 10 times more powerful than
the atomic bomb dropped on
Hiroshima.
Johnson said the best way to
change policy is through the ballot.
"I feel we are only one election
away from this (anti-cruise) feeling
being a majority feeling," he said.
"Tell city council on Nov. 17 to
convey the message that the cruise is
a bad thing." There will be a cruise
missile testing referendum on Vancouver civic ballots.
In response to a questioner pointing out difficulties involved in
reaching a verifiable mutual agreement on the cruise, Johnson said
"The cruise is hard to detect, but
we can rely on a level of minimal
trust. Intelligence people can detect
production of cruise missiles — and
spies always come in handy."

Disarmament organized the
meeting.
be better to offer a more broad
range of generic programs," he
said.
Faculty association representative
Gordon Wilson said he is not sure
what Gallagher means by "generic
programs." But he said the college
will end up with "courses tailored
specifically to industrial and corporate needs."
"Clearly the five-year plan shows
the free access community members
have had will be reduced."
Wilson said support services for
handicapped, learning disabled and
mature students will be cut. But all
students at the college will suffer,
he adds, because faculty will have
increased workloads of an additi-
tional 33 to 40 students with no pay
increase.
Gallagher said there are other opportunities in the community for
people to take adult basic education
and women access centre services
can   be   provided   in   some   other
form.
But women's centre worker Marsha Trew said she wants to know
how the centre's counselling services can be duplicated.
"What this college will end up
being is a glorified high school,"
Trew said. "There are a lot of mature women who need assistance
and won't get it."
Last year there were 1,026 part-
time women students in academic
courses,  one-quarter  of Capilano
College's student population.
Jack Finnboghason, president of
the College-Institute Educators Association of B.C., said the situation
is the same at other B.C. colleges.
He said colleges virtually have instructions from the provincial government to become more technology and industry oriented. He said
community service funding to colleges will be stopped this year so
any such programs will have to be
self-funded.
Pictures violent
By SARAH MILLIN
Pictures of women taken just for
male pleasure are inherently violent, a rape crisis centre worker said
Thursday.
Christina Willings, a Woman
Against Violence Against Women
worker,told 15 people in the women
students' lounge pornography is
equivalent to violence.
Willings said "porn" means
whore and "graphy" means pictures, adding pornography is the
depiction of all women as whores.
"The pornography institution
creates lies about women," Willings
said. This institution, she said,
makes $50 billion per year in North
America.
The argument of pornography
apologists who claim these pictures
provide a release for men instead of
an example is preposterous, Willings said.
"We have a multi-million dollar
education industry that runs on the
theory that people learn from what
they see and read." She said some
people such as Clifford Olson say
their inspiration was pornography.
Willings said some women think
women in pornography bear no relation to how women are treated in
society. "Out of self-protection we
look away from pornography,"
said Willings. "It's humiliating."
Willings said women are degraded in other areas, which often show
women as items for male consumption.
She said a recent issue of Penthouse displays this degradation.
"Penthouse, which is held to be
soft porn, contained a series of pictures of a very young Oriental woman, bound in the most horrible
ways, with her pubic hair removed," Willings said. "The message
was that either women have to be
made to look younger or be
younger."
"There is legislation already in
existence to deal with pornography
but the federal government does not
want to enforce it until they have
standards for judging," she said.
"Pornography should be included in the list of hate literature as a
political coup to make people think
about it," Willings said.
The UBC women's centre sponsored the speech.

says the walk is meant to highlight
the activities at the base, where testing and development of the U.S.
navy's anti-submarine program is
carried out. A short rally outside
the base will be held after the walk.
Organizer Dave Erickson said,
"the program at Nanoose Bay has
major implications. As it stands
now submarines are basically invulnerable, they provide the second

the theory of deterrence, mutually

"If we develop technology that

And in place of deterrence we get

Billy Bee hila
1&ONNNM/Mn*<i«c
By GORDON CLARK
he Constellation Theatre Company's Billy Bee, King of the Hive
had an unfortunate run last weekend at the Centennial Theatre in
North Vancouver.
The musical review was absolutely wonderful, but for the most part
the performers were playing to an
empty house. Vancouverites either
lost their sense of humor, or were
unprepared to brave a downpour
and the Seabus.
The production was one of the
funniest shows of its kind appearing
in Vancouver in recent memory. Although Billy Bee has been criticized
for its lack of professionalism, the
slightly offbeat style has an endearing quality about it. Who can fail to
see the undeniable humor in Daveee
Bee (Dave Barrett) strutting about
with a sour look on his insect-like
face, angrily buzzing about the state
of B.C.'s leadership? BZZZ . . .
BZZZ . . .
The characters crawling, or
creeping as the case may be, around
the stage singing such classic tunes
as There's No Business Like the
Rally Business, What Ever Happened to Class?, and Be a Socred! caused a number of audience members
noticeably roll in the aisles.
Bill Johnston and Wendy Merk,
who conceived and wrote the play,
also have leading roles. Johnson
plays the king bee himself, Billy
Bee, while Merk plays a multitude
of characters ranging from the
queen bee, a marvelously sleazy version of our present monarch, to
Baby Huey, an infantile caricature
of the finance minister Hugh Curtis.
The other five performers, Lome
Birch, Margo Gogo, Louise
I.eroux, Brian Leslie and Robert
Turner play a total of 18 roles.
The actors were so accomplished
in their roles ihat it would be completely unfair to single out a "star."
But the highlights of the performance
must surely be Davee Bee's facial
expressions as he is being stroked
on his antennae off to sleep, and
Catherine the Grace, played by
Robert Turner, singing about how
nice it is being a "guy being a girl
like me."

Secret Tory handbook faddish in humor
By VICTOR WONG
he new Tory government has
just opened Parliament, and already someone's trying to send it
up.
According to the press release,
The Top Secret Tory Handbook
was a result of a meeting between
Lester, Orpen & Dennys and a mysterious person known only as Deep
Chin. Deep Chin had a document
which purported to be a handbook
for all new Tory MPs

Obviously this is all a facade far
foisting another one of those "official handbooks" upon the general
reading public. I think the people
who wrote The Official Preppy
Handbook must've gone into a
stupor when they realized what a
monster fad in humor books they
unleashed.
What sets this one apart from all
the rest is that it seems so . . . Canadian. Even the Official Hoset's
Handbook has a tinge of America
to it.
What we have here seems to be
the result of a bizarre cross-breed
ing between The Official Preppy
Handbook and the second chapter
of Parkinson's Law, as performed
by Dr. Foth. The humor level isn't
tepid, but it fluctuates between
moderately funny to within a hair
of becoming cynical.
The more cynical parts of the
handbook have to do with the explanations of the Canadian parliamentary system as proposed by the
writer (or writers — whoever wrote
the book can't seem to decide whether to call him/herself "we" or
"1"). For example: is a Canadian
Senate necessary? "Do children
need candy? Do cars need chrome?
You may not appear to need those
things to survive, but how much
better life is with that candy and
that chrome!" Seems Senate reform
isn't taken seriously. Political science professors may drop dead at
the sacrileges this book takes.
The book is moderately funny
when it looks at Ottawa and its social life. Here the book very closely
parallels The Official Preppy Handbook, right down to lists of what's
"In" and what's "Out." The
A-Team is in, The Journal is out,
and so on.
The parallel with Parkinson's
Law comes when parliamentary behavior is discussed. Tips are given
on how to make your first parlia
mentary speech (don't worry;
everyone will be asleep when you
do) and how to make appropriate
gestures during Question Period.
There are also tips on what to wear
in the Commons. Colors too bright,
it says, are to be discouraged, because you can wreck the TV cameras that way.
There is an interesting section on
how to deal with members of the infamous Toronto media mafia.
(Foth is defanged; don't stare at
Barbara Amiel's chest; compliment
Knowlton Nash on his new glasses
as often as you can.)
Whether or not you will enjoy the
book depends on how up on politics you are. 1 am dead certain the
PC Youth on campus will enjoy it
immensely, although they may bridle at the suggestion the book
makes about the Tories vowing to
stay in power no matter what the
cost.
Career student politicians like
James Hollis might not think it so
funny, though. Maybe that's why
Deep Chin didn't want to be named; anyone without a sense of
humor might be tempted to sue.
And that's not funny.

mother country — Great Britain.
Terra Nova
By Ted Tally
Directed by Cedric Smith
At the Playhouse
The Englishmen have competition, however. There is another
group in search of the honour of
trampling the virgin ground, lead
by Norwegian scientist Edmundsen.
He decides to make the trek with a
large team of husky dogs instead of
an all men crew. When he is in need
of food on the risky journey, he will
eat the dogs.
The British crew, of course, is
flabbergasted by Edmundsen's
plan. Scott condemns the
Norwegian scientist, saying his
waste of animal life is unjust. The
"real" man with high ideals and
morality would never do such
things, according to Scott. He and
his men with their idealism and
faith in human kind will pull a 1,000
pound sled over 1,600 miles of icy
Antartic terrain, and beat the
Norwegian to the prize.
The Englishmen are brave, but
courage in and of itself is not always
noble. They have their faith, their
beliefs, but it does not matter as
they die in a very unnoble way.
The author states that although
the British were unsuccessful, their
journey is an epic. But in fact the
play has many weaknesses, and the
epic is less than great.
The most obvious fault is the attack on the Norwegian scientist. His
method may seem ruthless, but he
arrives at the destination first, an
entire month before the English
crew. Scott had tried the journey on
foot before and failed. It seems silly
for Scott to repeat the mistake —
especially since Scott is a man
respected for his mind as well as his
courage.
If the author equates his main
hero Scott with the epic heroes,
surely he could have given him the
Odyssian character trait of nimble
wits. It is the Norwegian's approach
that is the most clever.
The Norwegian scientist is portrayed unfairly. He appears on

Cineplex fulfills rumors of Vance
By BRENT LEDGER
fter years of unfulfilled rumors
Cineplex Corporation finally opens
its first Vancouver theatre complex
today.
The new complex is located on
the lower level of the Royal Centre
Mall (Burrard and Georgia). Vancouverites can now see for themselves why, for the past five years,
eastern Canadians have been jamming into concrete cubicles to watch
movies on screens bigger than a
breadbox but smaller than your
average theatre marquee.
Cineplex specializes in multiple
theatres. It opened its first complex
in the Toronto Eaton Centre in
1979. The 20-odd theatres in it were
tiny by conventional standards, featured rear projection and bunker
style architecture. Sitting in one was
akin to watching t.v. in a concrete
rec room with a crowd of strangers
— unsettling to say the least.
But that was five years ago, and
not for nothing does Cineplex now
own Odeon. These people learn
from their mistakes. The Vancouver complex features larger theatres
(120 to 200 seats), standard 35mm
front projection, larger than usual
seats, pink and grey walls, and deco
light fixtures.
There are gimmicks galore — advanced, computerized ticket sales, a
cappuccino bar-cum-restaurant —
but once the novelty has worn off
you're still left with a group of theatres much like any other.
The interest lies in the programming. The rationale for this sort of
theatre design is that it will allow

cialty, art and children's films.
Thus the opening lineup features
the latest from Fellini, Godard,
Russell and Forsyth, as well as an
adaptation of a Proust novel.
Whether we will continue to suffer from such a surfeit of riches is
another question entirely. The first
Toronto complex opened with an
equally prestigious lineup, but
quickly turned to more commercial
offerings as audiences failed to arrive in their expected droves. Eventually the Carlton Street complex
opened and art films found a new
home under the Cineplex logo, but
there was a lengthy hiatus in between.
It remains to be seen whether
Vancouver can muster the necessary
support for this sort of attraction.
Vancouverites are a breed unto
themselves and Cineplex is essentially a compromise solution — the
hybrid child of a full-size theatre
and a home TV screen.
Given the comforts and Nanaimo
bars of the Ridge on the one hand,
and the convenience of video cassettes on the other, will the discerning artsy choose Cineplex instead?
For Cinema fans worn out by
frenzied car chases, frenetic frat
house comedies, or the strained sophistication of Woody Allen's New
York encounters, Bill Forsyth offers hope in the form of a gentle
comedy that mocks, in the most affectionate manner possible, the all-
too-human foibles of everyday
folks.
Sad to say, however, Forsyth's
latest film, Comfort and Joy, is a
bit of a dud, a creaking contrivance
barely containing its disparate elements. The film combines romantic
comedy, social satire, and farce,
and of the three genres Forsyth is
comfortable only with the first.
Consequently the high point of
the film occurs within its first 15
minutes. It is Christmas and Alan
pan charm and an alluring mix of
sophistication and innocence typical
of many of Forsyth's characters.
This is the sort of material for
which Forsyth's talents are tailor-
made. It takes a certain subtlety of
technique to capture the pain of lost
love. Forsyth is absolutely skilled at
using a knowing glance or a shy
half-smile to suggest the ambiguities
in a relationship or to furnish a sly
commentary on the action. Thus
though Maddy — cleverly played by
Eleanor David — is clearly the villain of the piece, the pained look on
her face declares her wronged innocence. Meanwhile her three friends
are emptying the house of its contents with an efficiency that would
make a commando unit proud.
Forsyth mines the pain of the sit
uation for quirky bits of humor.
One of the friends exits with a huge
bust of Michelangelo's David under
his arm. Alan looks on in bewilder-
men. It is a wry and witty comment
on the search for the perfect mate.
Unfortunately this particular
story doesn't really interest Forsyth. Instead he has his hero confront the void.
Bill Paterson as Alan does a commendable job making his character
both interesting and attractive, alternately wistful and practical. But
even the most gifted actor would
have difficulty providing more than
a few different reactions when confronted with no more than four
bare walls, an absent lover, and the
proverbial bottle of Scotch.
Film isn't a particularly useful
medium for portraying inner pain
independent of external conflict.
Richard Wright explores similar territory — the agony of the urban
male left on his own — but more
successfully, in his novel The Weekend Man. But then novelists are used to making something out of
nothing. With film, what you see is
what you get. Recognizing the limitations of his medium Forsyth introduces some action. Unfortunately it comes in the form of farce, a
genre with which Forsyth is temperamentally incompatible.
Lured by the glimpse of a beautiful woman, Alan becomes entangled in a war between two parts of the
same Italian family for control of
the Glasgow ice cream market. The
trade names of the rival factions are
Mr. MacCool and Mr. Bunny. This
cute situation is meant to offer Alan
a chance to "care again." (Cue strings). He acts as intermediary and
effects a reconciliation.
As comedy this just doesn't
work. The pace is too slow, the
farce is never full out. The film just
sort of meanders along in a genial
sort of way unsuited to the
material.
Worse, the ending is too pat by
half. In more innocent times Frank
Capra may have been able to get
away with such pie-in-the-sky resolutions, but in the cynical '80s it just
won't wash. Maybe we're the victims of racist assumptions about
Italians, maybe we've seen the Godfather once too often, but the idea
that feuding Italians would reconc-
cile themselves in order to sell icecream fritters is just a little too contrived.
So watch the first 15 minutes of
Comfort and Joy, skip the rest, and
hope Bill Forsyth returns to form in
his next film outing. Page 8

There's Panic in the streets
By RORY ALLEN
At last, there's Panic on Vancouver's hard rock scene.
The band made their first public
performance Friday night at the city's most infamous hard rock club,
Outlaw's. Unfortunately, the paying customers drink more beer to
the sounds of top 100 rock and roll,
so bands do not play many original
songs, but stick mostly to the more
popular current tunes.
It's no surprise then that the
ability of new bands to reproduce
the sounds of famous rockers determines their fate in the future. Judging by the way Panic plays, this
band may become one of Vancouver's most successful groups.
Panic opened up with April
Wine's Hard Rock Kid, a fast-paced
tune that motivated the large
crowd. Solos by lead guitarist Andy
Richards and Peter Beckett grabbed
the attention of heavy metal fans in
the audience who were duly impressed by these musicians'
technical skills.
By the fourth song, In The Dead
Of Night, the dry ice flowed out.
Lead vocalist Jolly Alex jumped
around the mist-filled stage, tugging bassist Tom Keith's hair, singing the raunchy Judas Priest hit
with style and clarity.
Other songs in the band's repertoire included material by Def Lep-
pard, Honeymoon Suite, Helix,
Stray Cats and Huey Lewis. They
played one original song, Don't
Give It Up. It was the kind of song
hits are made of; a good fast beat,
clear lyrics and lead guitar that
wasn't too heavy to drown out the
bass, drummer and singer.
The band ended their set with

Dance week strong
T
he second annual Dance Week was a
week like no other for those passionate about
dance because in the spirit of other sacred traditions, dance permeated the atmosphere —
through video, film, seminars, photo exhibits,
and of course, the nightly live performances.
a mythical story about
a neverending struggle
Unfortunately, some of Vancouver's most established or venerated choreographers did not show their
work. Paula Ross appeared only in David Rimmer's
Shades of Red.
Karen Jamieson Rimmer contributed a video of her
signature piece, Sisyphus. It is a mythical story of
never ending struggle performed to rhythmic music by
David Mclntyre. David Rimmer's video is a lovely
piece of work in itself but detracts from the dance by
focusing on too many closeups.
Both Judith Marcuse and Renaid Rabu were absent.
And Anna Wynman had recently returned from a performing tour of the Interior.
What remains with me after a week stuffed
full of performances and exhibits are the
dances with the clearest after-images,
the dances that went farther than the
space already occupied by dance. These
added to the dance language.
Under the Table: Wrestling with Dad is Tom
Stroud's premier performance portraying a man coming to grips with the death of his father. The text is
emotional, verging on trite and melodramatic, but the
movement is unique. Stroud uses a table which lends
images of a silver body eroding,
overlapping, and erupting again
the dancers two more planes, above the table and below the table, as well as the stage. The weaving of
movement around the table is excellent and when his
wordy soliloquy becomes painfully sincere, the performance really takes hold of its audience.
The images in Time Made Visible by Connie
Schrader lingered both during and after the performance. Danced by Schrader in total darkness, the piece
was illuminated by intermittent strobe flashes.
Great images of a silver shaped body whose overlapping silver pigments were disintegrating away while
others were erupting .. . . eroding, overlapping, and
erupting again.
Sandra Acton and Lyne Lanthier created a sequel to last year's Fred et Louise, titled Fred et
Louise au Pays Des Merveilles, which has matured in concept and presentation. They parodied the male-female roles with traditional tilts
and leaps, starting with the early role modelling
of two children on a red toy wagon. The string of dolls
suspended above were similar to last year's props, but
Fred and Louise grew beyond an erotic struggle for
dominance.
atmosphere of wild but
directed energy
A premier performance of Donna Snipper's Ko Ko
Ku stands out as a work of daring proportions for the
choreographer, the dancers and the audience. Performed to the Laurie Anderson song of the same title,
Ko Ko Ku suggests ancient fertility rites, and the
cyclicity of life. The dance begins and ends with the
same movements: a plie with arms stretched diagonally.
In front of the sole dancer lies a large lavender cloth
that undulates and quivers with her movements. The
moving cloth sculpture contains two people who
emerge naked at the completion of a cycle. Snipper's
naked birth is tasteful, a perfect choice for an unconventional dance about the infinity of life.
Lori Farr's Heiroglyphs is a shinging example of
how good and adaptable the mainstream can be. With
bagpipes exploding in the dark and the stage lit on a
bagpipes exploding
in the dark
seamless combination of contact, modern, and Scottish dance styles. Farr created six dancers' parts purposefully so that each move appears relevant to the
dance. She weaves witty narratives among stylized
dance moves for a tasteful and uplifting performance.
Peter Bingham created a thrilling piece. By improvising freely and intelligently, Bingham and Hirabay-
ashi provide an atmosphere of wild but directed energy, against a spooky backdrop of slowly undulating
crowds of dancers as they furiously leap, tumble,
pose and fall, often changing pace and never allowing
the audience to become complacent observers.

One evening's program ranged in quality
from fair entertainment to anesthetic
monotony. Opening the show: Kevin Stewart struts his stuff as a stage designer but
trudges as a choreographer in Passion Ploy
. . . Climax and Resolution. His three
couples manage to pull off some pleasant, static mood
scenes but the piece lacks energy and direction.
Second on the agenda: Norman Fung's intriguing
combination of martial art moves with ballet flourishes. He develops an interplay between violence and
courtesy in The Legend of Gwaan. His breath and
pounding feet accentuate the movement to provide his
performance with cohesion and a sense of purpose not
shared by many of the other dances.
In Excerpt from Roots and Wings, Linda Moncur's
troupe of endearing children perform skits depicting a
bug hunt and then a thunderstorm which threatens a
picnic. The fact that these young people perform in the
dance festival is more interesting than what they actually do. While this is a brave attempt at widening the
age spectrum of Vancouver's performing community,
too often it feels like an idealized view of kids which
adults often like to see: charming miniature people.
While the shows before the intermission all had
some interesting angles, the shows after the break were
exhausted reworks of familiar themes. First, a
thoughtless political statement called The Disaster of
the Century insults the audience's intelligence and contributes nothing to the feminist movement in whose
thoughtless political statement
insults the audience's intelligence
honor it is presented. Next, Kairos struggles gloomily
with the anguish and melancholy of lost paradise. The
heavy-handed, sparse dialogue, stylized sobbing and
mourning behavior serve to open a gulf between the
audience and the performer rather than encouraging
sympathy with the dance's concerns.
A capably danced but somewhat tired study in ballet
technique, Wonky Tonk, closed the evening. Though
at times fast-paced it needs a fresh approach or a
spark of individuality to make it more than a routine
exercise.
The overall tone of the evening was one of partially
reached goals and inexperience. What really saved the
evening was the sincerity of most of the work in those
pieces where the artists bravely try something new and
risky. Page 10

Students 'herd' politicians
OTTAWA (CUP) — More than
100 student politicians are in Ottawa this week discussing the future
of the deficit-ridden Canadian Federation of Students and lobbying
federal members of Parliament for
an end to the underfunding of post-
secondary education.
The representatives from Canada's national student lobby group
are grappling with solutions to the
federation's $65,000 deficit, and
planning a lobby strategy for bringing student concerns to the federal
government's attention.
Student politicians at the CFS
general meeting, from Nov. 4 to 11,
are revamping the lobby group's
bureaucratic structure and hoping
to merge the federation's two executive boards into one.
CFS chair Beth Olley said conference delegates will converge on Parliament Hill today for a group
lobby of between 60 to 100 MPs
from all three parties.
Olley said nearly all 100 delegates
will be herded into a big room with
Tories first, then Liberals and New
Democrats as part of the group lobby tactic.
She said a few politicians, such as
the youth minister, the secretary of
state and employment and immigration minister are key targets for
private visits.
And on Nov. 15, the Ontario
Federation of Students will take a
different tact as they hold various
'actions' across the province.
The OFS day of actions is different from the CFS lobby day because
it organizes students at a grassroots
level for protests and pickets, in
marked contrast to CFS' professional lobby approach.
Olley said CFS is much more effective at lobbying the government
than the grassroots organizing and
actions.
"We sit down and meet with
members of the federal government
and bring them the concerns of students   on   their   own   turf,"   says
Olley. "We let the provinces organize their own acts. It seems to
work better that way."
The largest Quebec student organization also plans a day of action on Nov. 15.

I like the taste of a cold beer on a hot day,

the fact you've had
