Array Dreaming of leftover stuffing since 1918
UBC students face 80% tuition increase
by Matt Thompson
UBC tuition fees are set to skyrocket, student leaders warn.
According to Alma Mater Society (AMS) Coordinator of External Affairs David Borins, students could face tuition fee increases as high as 80 percent next
year.
"I've recendy received information from various sources both
on and off campus," Borins said.
"I crunched the numbers over the
weekend, and the fisrure I arrived
at is a tuition fee increase of at
least 80 percent."
Borins says he's learned that
the university anticipates an eight
percent reduction in its Provincial
Operating Grant for 1996-97.
Under existing university policies, Borins says a reduction of
that size would translate into a tuition fee increase of approximately
80 percent, or $ 1,800 more for the
average student.
Students across the country are
bracing for tuition fee hikes in the
coming year as a result of massive
cuts in federal transfer payments
to the provinces announced in last
February's federal budget.
Planned cuts to the Canada
Health   and   Social   Transfer
(CHST), the new federal-provincial funding arrangement, will effectively remove $824 million
from post-secondary education, health and income assistance in BC over the
next three years.
The provincial Ministry
of Skills,
Train-
summer.
Ministry spokesperson Robert
Buchan says the federal government has to accept the lion's
share of responsibility for cuts
to BC's post-secondary education budget and the resulting increases in
tuition.
"The minister is loathe
to step in
and
say,
and
Labour
estimates
CHST   cuts
will shrink BC's
post-secondary edu
cation and training pro
grams budget by $250
million.
"This is the equivalent of taking more than 20,000 students out
of the post-secondary system, or
raising tuition fees across the
board by about 80 percent," Minister Dan Miller announced last
Clay,
what
can     the
province do
about this' and
the feds just sort of
walk away. What he
wants to see out there is
a lot of yelling and screaming about the federal cuts,"
Buchan said.
Buchan said the ministry hasn't
ruled out the possibility of a government-imposed tuition cap.
"But when you've got a $250 million lack," he added, "the system
has got to respond."
UBC's Board of Governors announced last May that the university would raise tuition fees by
any amount necessary to make up
for the expected cuts in provincial funding.
Borins says UBC's tuition
policy passes the full brunt of federal and provincial cuts direcdy
onto students.
"I don't see any justification for
asking students to be one hundred percent responsible for
funding cutbacks in education,"
he said.
"I believe that students are willing to accept their fair share of
the cost of post-secondary education, but not more than that."
The AMS is organizing a major protest against the federal cuts
this Friday, October 13. The Trek
for Education will protest cuts to
social programs and demand provincial legislation restricting the
increase of tuition fees.
The Trek begins at 10:30am in
Connaught Park, where participants will march to the Student
Union Building for a 12:30pm
rally.
POLITICAL SCIENCE DEPARTMENT
Graduate students targeted with retaliation and exclusion
by Matt Green and Sarah
O'Donnell
Graduate students who participated in the McEwen report say
they have become targets of retaliation.
As if this were not bad enough,
students facing retaliation feel
there are no effective structures in
place to deal with their concerns.
Steve Wilson, Graduate Student Society director of student
affairs, says students are dissatisfied with both the internal committees established by the political science department and the
university's equity office.
"The Equity Office is the only
place [students] can turn, but they
don't have full confidence in the
ability of that office to address
their concerns," he said.
Wilson said one ofthe primary
failings of the equity office is that
Sharon Kahn, its head, is an associate vice president and reports to
the president's office.
Vice President of Academics
Dan Birch acknowledged the
Equity Office independence issue
in a September 12 memo.
Birch said the impending "geographic separation [of the equity
office] from the Old Administration building should contribute to
the perceived independence ofthe
associate vice president, equity."
Kahn said the equity office has
a lot on its plate. "I don't have a
magic wand and I think a lot of
people wish that I did.
"There are problems of discrimination and harassment that
are extremely complicated, and
we're still learning how to cope
with them and developing new
procedures," she added.
Reports of retaliation against
students first surfaced in Birch's
September 12 memo to President
Strangway. Birch reported that the
Equity Office had received four
complaints of possible retaliation
as of mid-September.
"Two students reported receiving anonymous, harassing phone
calls; one student complained
about another student's behaviour
and one student complained
about the conduct of a faculty
member," he wrote.
Wilson said some of the retaliatory measures have been harsh.
"There have been breaches of
confidentiality of one of the students in particular. She was
tracked down at her place of work
by the Vancouver Sun, who published her name and complete
address in an article about her.
"She was supposed to remain
anonymous," said Wilson. "We
don't know if it was students or if
it was faculty [who tipped off the
reporter]."
When asked about the complaints, Associate Vice-President
of Equity Sharon Kahn said "In
[the cases with anonymous respondents] we did informally resolve the cases, with the intervention ofthe Dean of Graduate Studies.
"What this means is that there
has been no investigation, there
has been no adjudication, nothing
has been proven."
Kevin Dwyer, a political science
graduate student, says it's not the
first time students have been
threatened during the McEwen
controversy.
"Beginning in January there
were threats that if students went
to the McEwen enquiry, professors would sue them," said Dwyer.
"During the summer when the
process began there was an attempt to blackmail students into
accepting the departmental reform
process."
The political science department had set up three working
groups comprised of both students
and faculty representatives to deal
with concerns in the department
In a September 28 memo, Acting
Political Science Head David
Elkins announced that students
had been dropped from the committees.
Dwyer says dropping students
from the three committees showed
poor judgement.
"What we're after here is an environment that is an inclusive.
open, congenial, respectful environment in which to study. And I
don't think that's there right now."
Wilson says students are dissatisfied with the new royal commission-style committees set up by the
political science department.
"The big concern is that it gives
the impression that there is a legitimate process in place and that
the faculty are dealing with the
complaints," said Wilson.
"It' going to be very hard to distinguish between that and what is
just sheer window dressing."
Dwyer said the lack of good
faith in the political science department and hostile climate has
forced him to go to the media.
"During this summer we've had
two PhD students who are now on
leave of absence, and one PhD
student who has withdrawn from
the program.
"What we see here, in my
interpretation, is the mar-
ginalization, isolation, of students
in this department." !7J h MH IITSI? E

AMS Update
SUPPORT THE TREK FOR EDUCATION!
Y
ou've seen the posters. You've received the handbills. You've signed the
petitions. You may have even checked out the cool display in the SUB
Concourse.
Now it's time for the students of UBC to mobilize.
Over $7.2 billion dollars in corporate subsidies and tax breaks exists while
government intends to cut $6.6 billion from social services. This means that
you, not government or the university, will be asked to pay at lease 30% (and
probably 80%) more in tuition fees next year. Who knows maybe the year
after will see another 50% increase.  And the year after that will see 100%
increase.
Will you be able to afford to pay for your education?
The UBC tuition policy clearly states that the impact of these cutbacks will
be passed directly to the students. Therefore, it is important for students to
participate in the Trek for Education to show the federal government that
these cutbacks are not acceptable and to urge the provincial government to
keep their committment to public education by enacting legislation restricting
the increase of tuition fees at universities and colleges.
The Trek for Education is a great UBC tradition and has recently gained some
local media attention.  Last Monday evening, David Borins, Coordinator of
External Affairs, and Am Johal, Director of Administration, approached the
Vancouver School Board asking them to close classes on October 13th so
PROTEST the Federal Cuts to Social Programs!
DEMAND Provincial Legislation restricting the
increase of Tuition Fees!

that students could participate in the Trek. This piece was featured on U.TV
and heard in many local radio stations.  Check out your copies of the
Georgia Straight and the Westender/Kitsilano News — there's also mention
of the Trek for Education and there's still more to come.
The Trek for Education is an opportunity for you, the students of UBC, to
speak out against drastic, unacceptable increases in your tuition fees.  If
Canada does not invest in education today, then how will this generation
provide for a rapidly aging population? The answer is that it simply won't
be able to do so.
For more information about the upcoming Trek for Education, please contact David Borins, Coordinator of External Affairs at 822-2050.

Live Bait (Canada)
Oct 11 7:00pm at the Ridge
Oct 14 2:00pm at the Ridge
by Peter T. Chattaway
Live Bait director Bruce Sweeney '
is reportedly very concerned that
the media not mention his status as j
a UBC graduate student. If word gets
out, people might mistake Live Bait
for a student film.
Not that it matters. Those who
see Live Bait for themselves might
come to that conclusion anyway,
though it's not the black & white
photography, the cruddy sound, or
the Gen X-istentialism that tips us
off. (Clerics had all those and not
much else, but it still felt like a
movie.)
Chalk it up to the banal symbolism - particularly the junkyard
sculpture that gets unceremoniously
dumped on a suburban front lawn
- and the unfocussed narrative,
which meanders from the attempts
of 23-year-old virgin Trevor (UBC
theatre grad Tom Scholte) to get laid,
to the breakup of his parents' marriage, to the boxing training his
thickheaded roommate dabbles in,]
and other short-film ideas that J
might have worked if they hadn't j
been seconded into padding out this j
feature.
Scholte is likable enough, and
Micki Maunsell has a charming sort
of geriatric eccentricity as the surrogate grandmother who fuels his
Oedipal yearnings — she's Kathenne
Hepburn, Mrs Robinson, and a mad
scientist all rolled into one. But the
film feels at least as aimless as its J
protagonists, and it certainly doesn't^
live up to its billing as an "homage
to Woodv Allen".
House (Canada)
Oct 11 10:15am at Robson
Square
by Peter T. Chattaway
No play is trickier to adapt to the
big screen than a monologue. Some,
like Talk Radio, expand their scripts
to include new characters, and to
bring the story into a more realistic
setting.
House (not to be confused with
the mid-'80s horror flick) doesn't
quite pursue this route. While a few
characters have been added to
Daniel Maclvor's original play
mostly to act out the vignettes that I
he narrates between his more per-1
sonal reminiscences - most of the
film is set in a run-down church,
where therapy group escapee Victor (Maclvor) addresses a small
crowd of strangers in a rapid-fire
monologue filled with scathing remarks about his parents, the therapy
group he attended, and others.
Since film is primarily a visual
medium, keeping up with Victor's
verbal barrage is something of a
challenge. Director Laurie Lynd (who
collaborated with Maclvor on the
shorts R.S.V.P. and 7Yie Fairy Who
Didn't Want to Be a Fairy Anymore)
punches it up with quirky lighting,
arresting sound effects, and other
cinematic flourishes.
The vignettes, in particular, are
like rest stops on the journey
through Victor's mind. Maclvor's
narration adopts a more leisurely
pace, and the visuals have a rich,
sumptuous texture. The stories
therein are also a delightful mix of
sweet and twisted, and character
istic of the film as a whole. Never
have spontaneous combustion or
infanticide appeared so gentle and
romantic.
FILM
Just you and Me
(Sweden)
Oct 10 9:30pm at Van Centre
Oct 1212:30am at the Caprice
by Peter T. Chattaway
Director Suzanne Osten would
like you to think that Just You and
Me is a political satire, but it's not,
really.
Flore (Fransesca Quartey), the
central character, may be a 25 year
old black woman recently appointed
Assistant Minister of Education, but
the film barely makes any satirical
use of her race, gender, or age. As
one character puts it, her brothers
- disgruntled Swedish rap singers
prone to breaking her Ikea - are
more politically conscious than she
is. But since Flore is the film's hollow core. Just You and Me ultimately
collapses under its own self-importance.
Just brimming with idealistic -
not to mention untried — ideas, Flore
shows up at her model school to
meet the guinea pigs. But from day
one she's smitten with Eliel (Etienne
Glaser), the much-divorced
fiftysomething father of five and
self-described "victim of matriarchy"
who teaches there. Political satire?
Forget it. Romantic comedy? If only.
Flore and Eliel end up spending all
their time in cafe after cafe after
cafe. It's no wondei;her supervisor
(Bjorn Kjellman) complains that she
never comes to the office.
Just You and Me is redeemed to
some degree by odd details (Flore's
cat certainly has a deep voice) and
Lena T. Hansson's mostly deadpai
performance as Flore's personal secretary. But it does not take long to
realize that Osten has no idea what
goes on in school or in politics. The
staff in her office may or may not.
be right in their claim that Flore was
hired for strictly specious reasons,
but it would appear that Osten never'
meant for the politics to be more
than a hook for a rather blase tryst.
Strange Stories (Italy)
by Matthew Kennedy
Strange Stories plays with a
number of stock characters to tell
tales about alienation, and how everyone is together on this ride.
Neatly set as a series of stories
told on a train ride to his daughter,
the narrator enlists all the characters in the compartment to humiliate and shame them for his own
twisted pleasure. A man belittles the
bureaucracy and struggles for
breath on his way to pay his "air
bill", only to find the irony that his
own struggle for self-survival has
stolen the breath of the not so fortunate. A surreal focus on the thin
line between fascism and democracy delineated by basic human
needs, this story ceases to be a
parody and becomes a paradigm of
reality.
The second and third stories follow suit, in tales of possessiveness^
that are striking in that eacf
person's    desire    suppresses
another's. The actors convincingly I
change suit in each short, but director Sandra Baldoni has delivered
a flat trip as level as the railroad
tracks on which the train skates.
The metaphor of train travel as a
mode of transformation leads us to j
the last stop, where reality becomesj
the authorless parable itself.

The Celluloid Closet
(USA)
by Ron Herbert
The Celluloid Closet by Rob
Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman is particularly appropriate to the film festival because it is a film about films.
Based on the book by Vito Russo,
it chronicles the depiction of gay and
lesbian characters in popular Hollywood films since the turn of the i
century. The film's chronological
sequence allows us to see the evolution of homosexuality on screen,
from the repression of the Hays Code
in 1934 (which condemned homosexuality as "sex perversion" and
banned it from the screen) to the
sexual revolution of the late '60s. It
achieves this by containing over 120
movie clips, as well as many interviews with actors, directors, and
producers that have portrayed homosexuality on screen.
Undoubtedly, 77ie Celluloid Closet
makes strong statements about several social issues, namely societal
heterosexism and the repressive
nature of gender roles. In spite of
this, the film brings its message/
home with copious amounts of
laughter, and on the whole it is very
humourous. This is a film which ,
leaves the audience in high spirits,'
feeling empowered by the major advances towards homosexual equality which have been made in the
last few decades.
77ie Celluloid Closet is definitely
a must-see. Unfortunately, just the
one screening was scheduled. However, with the sell-out crowd and
s the film's subsequent warm reception, rumour has it that extra screenings may be added at a later date,
so keep your eyes and ears open.

is the ideal antidote to the vast

is clueless yet possesses a driving ambition to become someone
important in America — to become
someone on television, that is.

appropriately ironic twist at the
end.
This brilliant satire is perfectly
drawn-out by writer Buck Henry
and director Gus Van Sant. They
build and sustain the story, interconnecting it with TV interviews
of the various participants. It is
played out in life as well as on
television. As Suzanne herself
says, "You aren't anybody in
America if you're not on TV. 'Cause
what's the point of doing anything
worthwhile if nobody's watching?"
Kidman is brilliant, a sort of
murderous Marcia Brady. She
plays a character with a core of
cold hard steel laced with a
marshmallow's thought patterns.
Her performance never wavers as
it carries the plot and satire racing along with it. After a string of
roles that could have been played
by any actor, Kidman makes this
one her own tour-de-force.
Phoenix and Affleck are adequately believable as the big
screen's answer to Beavis and
Butthead. Folland, though, gives
the stand-out performance of the
three teens. Her yearning for
friendship is palpable and painful. She is the emotional core
which Suzanne does not possess.
The way that Van Sant and Henry
use her as a counterpoint to
Suzanne is equal parts frightening and touching.
To Die For is a very funny
movie about fame and television. It can make the audience
feel a little smug and intellectually superior to these people,
much the same as watching
Hard Copy or American Journal.
But it also leaves a more unsettling feeling, much like an aftertaste of recognition. What would
it actually be like to be famous
and on television?

How to Make an
American Quilt
at the Granville 7
by Noelle Gallagher
"There's beauty in the patterns of
life" proclaim the ads. And indeed, if
you can get past the cheesey title,
this film has a lot to offer.
The story centers around Berkeley graduate student Finn (Winona
Ryder), who is hard at work on her
third master's thesis, this one on
women's handiwork in tribal cultures. When her boyfriend Sam
(Dermot Mulroney) proposes to her,
Finn decides to spend the summer at
the California home of her grandmother Hyacinth (Ellen Burstyn) and
Aunt Glady (Anne Bancroft).
These two ladies are members of
an all-female quilting bee which is
preparing Finn's wedding quilt.
Through the course of the film, these
women reminisce and tell Finn about
the pros and cons of meeting and
marrying your true love. The
women's stories are varied and interesting; some romantic, others
tragic. However, when sensuous
farmer Leon becomes romantically
interested in Finn, she must choose
between making a commitment to
Sam and keeping her freedom.
Although Winona Ryder may not
have been the best choice for the role
of Finn (her gamine, prepubescent
manner seems inappropriate for a
serious-minded grad student), the
supporting cast absolutely sparkles.
Bancroft and Burstyn are charming
and witty, making excellent use of
Jane Anderson's quirky comic
screenplay. Kate Capshaw is also notable as Finn's promiscuous mother,
who taught her that "marriage is
bullshit" and "serial monogamy is the
only way to go." Dialogue between
the quilters is cleverly written and
beautifully delivered, and the cinematography highlights some gorgeous California scenery.
Despite its few oversentimental

Assassins
at the Dunbar and Capitol 6
by Paula Bach
Let's face it, the title Assassins is
a bit blatant. This is not exactly a profession with a waiting list for admission. Perhaps it is stigmatized because such upstanding citizens as
John F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King,
|and John Lennon were shot and
killed by ruffians with a sharp eye
and the sort of grades that got them
through Assassination 101.
Robert Rath's (Sylvester Stallone)
claim to fame is his position as the
world's number one assassin, but he
no longer finds his chosen profession
fulfilling when he runs into Electra
Julianne Moore), his newest target.
Electra is a high-tech surveillance
pro who sells information illegally,
and she too is in the process of retiring.
Antonio Banderas, as beautiful as
he may be, is just not a convincing
assassin. He tries to pull off a psycholike character that only Mel Gibson
in Lethal Weapon mode could emulate. Considering that Richard Dormer
directed both films, this sort of crazi-
ness could, in theory, have been
brought out in Miguel, Banderas'
character. Either he is poorly cast, or
Dormer did not want that character
in the movie. Nevertheless, he is still
an oddly charming lunatic even if he
is not a convincing one.
Rath, Electra, and Miguel seem to
turn up everywhere together for one
reason or another. The film starts in
Portland, moves to Seattle, then everyone whisks off to Puerto Rico for
the Big Job. Various euphemisms for
following, contacting and killing a
target add cleverness to the script
when the assassins communicate online with the head honcho.
Lots of action in three different cities, high-tech secret agent kinda stuff
and chemistry between Rath and
Electra, all under Dormer's more than
competent direction, make this film
very entertaining.
Dancer finds grief, romance in Giselle
Giselle
October 12 -14
at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre
by Rachana Raizada
When the National Ballet performs Giselle this week, each
evening will unfold differently as
the four men who perform the role
of Prince Albrecht colour the ballet with their own ideas of this role.
"There are many interpretations," says Aleksandar Antonije-
vic, one of the principal performers, "and I think mine is quite different. I really do fall in love with
her very deeply. I think if Albrecht
didn't love her so much he
wouldn't have been able to go
through [to the second act]. If he
hadn't been so desperate or didn't
care, he wouldn't have gone to her
grave to grieve." Antonijevic has
somehow transformed the guilt of
a playboy to the grief of a lover.
When we first meet Albrecht he is disguised
as a peasant and declaring his undying love to
Giselle, even though his marriage has already
been arranged for him. In some ways he is as
much a victim of circumstance as her. According to Antonijevic, Albrechf s romance with
Giselle 'is one of the few things that he does
by himself, for himself." He thinks that he "falls
for her completely because of the totality of
her feelings, her beauty and her innocence.
When she dies of a broken heart, it really bar
an impact on him."
Antonijevic, 26, has been dancing Albrecht
for three years. For him, "Giselle" means Kim-
berly Glasco, the principal dancer with whom
he first learned the role and whom he has
partnered ever since. He is enthusiastic about
their on-stage chemistry and the vulnerability, femininity and emotional conviction that
she brings to the character. "I'm very much at
home with Kim's [Giselle]; I think we kind of
feed off each other."
Born in Yugoslavia, Antonijevic attended the
National Ballet School in Novi Sad. In 1991 he
Kimberly Glasco and Alexsandar Antonijevic dance in GISELLE.
joined the National Ballet of Canada after a two-
year stint in Zurich. Antonijevic has had principal roles in many full length classical ballets, an experience which has helped him prepare for the "very demanding" role of Albrecht.
Antonijevic thinks that the National Bailers
version, developed by Peter Wright in 1969, is
"especially exhausting." In the second act,
Giselle joins the Wilis (the vengeful spirits of
jilted girls who dance men to their death). In
this version, "yon don't go on and off the stage
as in the original coda, you are there the whole
time. You literally stay on till your last breath."
Also, since Giselle is now a spirit, the burden
of conveying that falls on the man, "in every
single lift you put her en pointe to bring the
illusion of a ghost."
Yet, Antonijevic feels that 'in some way the
role of Albrecht falls just a little bit short." His
favourite role is "most definitely Romeo, which
I absolutely love. I feel very disturbed for a
couple of days after [dancing it]. In Giselle you
lose her. As Romeo you die but at least you
stay with her. I'm just more romantic, I guess."

The Ubyssey Skip classes: support the Trek for Education
Every once in a while something comes along that is
worth skipping a few labs, discussion groups or lectures for.
The Trek for Education is one of these events. Every
UBC student should have 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. this
Friday set aside in their daytimer to participate.
With tuition fees set to increase by as much as 80 percent next year, any student with a pulse should definitely
plan on taking part.
Tuition hikes of this magnitude mean Canadians are
going to have to decide whether they still want a public
post-secondary education system in this country. The
federal government says it is still committed to accessible post-secondary education, but has adopted policies
that belong to a privatized system.
So far, the federal government has announced it will
drastically cut funding to post-secondary education (effectively raising tuition fees) and has handed responsibility for student loans over to banks.
It looks like the federal government is getting out of post-
secondary education altogether, and the provinces simply
don't have the money to pick up their financial slack.
Axworthy and Co. would never actually come out and
say this; that would be un-Canadian. And federal politicians are aware that a majority of Canadians still say
they suppport publicly-funded, universally accessible
education.
The federal government has chosen to make the cuts
anyway—it's just disguised them. In a political masterstroke, the Liberals lumped the old transfer payment
plans into the nifty "Canada Health and Social Transfer"
(CHST). The CHST is a big lump sum of federal money
that provinces can spend with no strings attached. The
kicker is that it's drastically smaller than previous transfer payments.
The provinces will be able to exercise greater fiscal
control, but they've attained it at a price- an $840
million price. In the words of one ministry spokesperson, "it's like being given a car without an engine."
The provinces get control over programs they can't
afford to run.
It would be a mistake to portray the provincial government as blameless, but it's understandable they're
upset; the provinces are being forced to pay the political
costs of federal policies.
The reaction of the university, on the other hand, is
inexcusable. Rather than lobbying for change or discussing other means to cut spending, the university has decided to let students single-handedly pick up the tab for
government cuts.
UBC has hardly been a hotbed of political protest in
recent years—even Langara, with a fraction of our student population, routinely outnumbers UBC at demonstrations like last spring's anti-Axworthy demonstration.
But if ever there were a cause UBC students should endorse en masse, this is it. It was a trek that got this university built, and it may take another trek to keep it accessible to students.
The post-secondary buck has been passed from the
feds to the provinces to the university to the student. It
stops with us.
Skipping one or two classes this Friday may mean
you'll be able to afford attending those classes next year.
Support the Trek.

letters
Editor's note: The following two
letters were brought to The Ubyssey
by Graduate Student Society president Heidi Petersen for publication.
Equity
Committee
Statement to Graduate Council
One of the mandates of the
Graduate Dean's Equity
Advisory Committee is to
advise the Dean on necessary
conditions that would enable
the resumption of graduate
admissions to the Political
Science Department. We
recognize the many limitations
ofthe McEwen Report and the
process surrounding it Never-.
theless, after due consideration
of the input we have received
from various sources, we
believe that there is a genuine
need to continue a review ofthe
norms and procedures in the
Political Science Department.
The goal of this review, now
being conducted in concert
with faculty and students, is to
ensure that a quality learning
and research environment is
provided for all members of
the department. This includes
strengthening academic
freedom and reasoned debate
that is enriched by a mutual
respect for the different life
experiences and perspectives
of all members of the
academic community.
In support of this effort, the
Committee is identifying criteria
for the administration of graduate
programs with hope of
promoting constructive discussion of these issues, not only
within Political Science but across
the campus. The current ban on
admissions to the graduate
program in Political Science was,
and remains, the primary
impetus for this review process.
We believe that this review
process is of immense value. We
hope that you, as stewards of
graduate education at UBC, will
support this effort by allowing the
current process to proceed.
Respectfully,
Members of the Graduate
Dean's Equity Advisory
Committee
Tsk tsk, Joe
Schlesinger
Dear Mr. Schlesinger,
I was deeply disappointed
by the way in which you chose
to portray the very serious
allegations against UBC's
Political Science Department
in your recent National
Magazine 'documentary.'
The reason which brought
you to UBC was, I believe, the
Report in Respect of the
Political Science Department
of the University of British
Columbia by Joan McEwen.
The essence of this report (for
those of you who have read it)
is that this specific department
was one against which a
considerable number of
students had raised significant
complaints.
How two professors who
were absolutely unrelated to
the Political Science drama
found their 'typical day'
starring on national television,
I am unsure. The events in
their   lives   had   nothing
whatever to do with the issue
at hand: the allegations against
the Political Science
Department. The structure of
your 'documentary' around
these two professors trivialized
the concerns of the students
and portrayed the faculty as
the victim. Your excuse for
this portrayal, namely the non-
cooperation of students, is not
only untrue, but is also a poor
justification for the "angle" of
the story. The documentary
only served to bury the truth
ofthe McEwen report deeper
under the mountain of
irresponsible journalism and
deliberate obfuscation which
has crushed the entire process
of healing and renewal here at
UBC.
These are tenuous times for
the CBC: as its agent, you
have a tremendous
responsibility to serve both the
truth and the people of this
country, students and
professors alike.
Sincerely,
Heidi Peterson
GSS President

The Ubyssey
Tuesday, October 10,1995 The recent UBC Tuition
Policy makes it clear that students
will make up any shortfalls between the university's general
purpose operating fund and the
provincial grant the university
receives. It is no coincidence that
this policy appears at a time
when the federal government has
promised a reduction in funding
of healthcare, post-secondary
education and social programs to
the tune of $6.6 billion, representing over $800 million in cuts
for British Columbia.
The provincial government is
forced to consider which publicly
funded services it will cut. With
little room to cut in the area of
social programs and the political
difficulty of cutting healthcare, the
provincial government is preparing to transfer the lion's share of
cut-backs to post-secondary
education. In fact, a number of
sources say UBC will receive a
cut of eight percent to its provincial grant, which represents over
$22 million to UBC in lost funding.
Under the UBC Tuition Policy,
students will cover the cost of the
anticipated eight percent cut to
UBC's budget plus the cost of inflation (estimated to be between
four and five percent using the
university's index) in addition to
a one-third increase of the basic
annual increase in tuition to fund
the university's new scholarship
and bursaries program.
This means students will be facing a total increase of over 80 percent on their tuition fees next year.
If the federal government has its
opinion
way, students will be paying tuition
fees in excess of $4,000.
There is evidence of a move
toward privatization at UBC. Ten
years ago, students were responsible for ten percent of the
university's general purpose operating fund. Presently we are
responsible for around 20 percent
ofthe university's operating costs.
As of next year, we may be responsible for closer to 30 percent.
Perspective:
David Borins,
AMS Co-ordinator of
External Affairs
As the percentage of private
funding for universities and colleges increases, the federal and
provincial government prepare to
unleash another round of cutbacks
in 1997/98. At what point will this
university cease to be a public
institution?
At a summer meeting of the
UBC Board of Governors it was
suggested that students can more
than afford tuition hikes. Student
representatives were told to quit
"strumming on the banjo of poverty." What the board is suggesting is that many students can afford to pay more and tuition fees
should be hiked accordingly. This
type of thinking contains a
fundamental flaw in logic. If anything, the board has identified the
problem, not the solution. Tuition
fees have already reached a level
that is prohibitive. UBC attracts a
large percentage of students from
wealthier backgrounds. A quick
check of the number of students
on student loans (only 9,000 out
of 28,000) will confirm this. UBC
has already become inaccessible to
certain sectors of society, namely, the
poor. To continue raising tuition fees
will only serve to make a university
education more difficult to obtain for
students from poorer socioeconomic
backgrounds.
The increasing inaccessibility
of universities and colleges is
leading to a two tiered society.
Already graduates of post-secondary education earn $10,000
more on average than high-
school graduates. Increased tuition fees will only serve to create greater disparity between
these two classes.
Rising tuition fees are eliminating the opportunity for equal access to post-secondary education
among all Canadians. Certain
Canadians are kept out of universities based on the size of their
wallet.
UBC is becoming a private
institution. The Liberal government's abdication of its social
responsibility has been passed on
through the system. The
provincial government *will make
no commitment to assuring
opportunity in British Columbia
and neither will UBC.
Unfortunately, this is being
complacently accepted. Unless
Canadians send the message to the
government that publicly funded
education, healthcare and social
programs are the last place to cut
from spending, we must all bear
responsibility for the harsh new
reality that is emerging.

The T-Birds split their season
opener series in Manitoba this
weekend.
Friday they lost 9-3 to a strong
Bison team, but came back
Saturday with a 5-2 win. "We
were as strong Saturday as we
were weak Friday," said coach
Mike Coflin.
UBC was up 3-0 late in the third
period Saturday when the Bisons
broke David TrofRmenkofFs shutout bid with a pair of quick goals
to make it 3-2. UBC took a time
out to regroup and Ryan Douglas
came back with a breakaway goal
to put the Birds up by two. An
empty netter rounded out the
scoring for UBC.
Overall, Coflin was pleased
with the split on the road and is
looking forward to UBC's first
two home games against Regina
this Friday and Saturday. Until
now, the team has played all eight
games on the road, including six
exhibition games in Edmonton
and Regina where UBC went 2-
3-1.
According to Coflin, the travelling has made it difficult for
nagging injuries to heal and is
tiring for the players.

The battered T-Bird team lost
25-22 to the Alberta Golden
Bears in Edmonton on Saturday
afternoon. The Birds have lost
several players for the season to
injuries and have several other
players temporarily out of
commission.
UBC defensive back Strachan
Hardey suffered a broken fibula
and tibia in the second half of a
game against Saskatchewan last
week. He underwent surgery to
insert a pin to hold the bone in
place, and will be out for the
season.
Hartley joins running back
Ashford Baker, who tore the ligaments in his knee several weeks
ago and receiver Brian Emanual
is out for the season with a knee
injury. Lineman Jon Lescheid
may also be out for the year be
cause of bone fragments in his
ankle, and defensive back Curtis
Galick will miss the season with
a cyst on a nerve in his shoulder
which is not a football related.
Field Hockey
UBC won the second of three
Canada West tournaments this
weekend and extended their
record in league play to 8-0.
UBC beat Calgary 1-0 and
Manitoba 9-0 on Saturday.
Sunday they beat Alberta 2-0 and
then edged out defending CIAU
Champion UVic 1-0. The T-Birds
have beaten UVic twice in two
league matches this season.
Captain Ayra Davy, whose
performance at Canada West
tournament #1 two weeks earlier
earned her CIAU female athlete
of the week, had four goals on
Saturday. "She was marked a lot
closer this time," said coach Hash
Kanjee. When that happens, "the
other players have to produce."
Laura Prellowitz picked up the
slack and scored both goals
against Alberta, and Naomi
Harding scored the goal against
Victoria on a penalty corner in
the second half.
Kanjee was especially pleased
with Sunday's performance against
UVic. "Defensively [UBC] played
exceptionally well and didn't give
[UVic] a chance," he said.
This year's addition of
goaltender Anne Harada, who
has not conceded a single goal in
eight league games so far, has
helped the team immensely. Not
only do the T-Birds give up fewer
