'LG loses Zep ads

members of the Canadian Union of

represents striking CKLG
workers, CUPE spokesman Ole
Johnson said Thursday.
Johnson said in an interview that
CUPE local 1004, which would
service the Led Zeppelin concert,
will follow the recommendation
reached today by the striking
CKLG local.
Concert promoter Tom Hulett
flew from Seattle to Vancouver and
told CKLG to end all its promotions
and ads for the concert, Johnson
Hulett   took   this   action   after
being read a s t o r y in Tuesday's
Ubyssey which said that a union
boycott of the concert was imminent because of the advertising
on CKLG, Johnson said.
If the striking local 686 does not
reverse its present position that the
concert should not be held because
of the CKLG involvement, then the
PNE CUPE local will not service
the concert resulting in cancellation, he added.
A promotion on CKLG whereby
certain listeners were to be given
free passes to the concert was
ended and the winners will not
receive their passes, Johnson said.

Master plan tells UBC development story
Many students and faculty have
complained this year about the
steady greying of the UBC campus.
Recent student protests changed
the university's plans to build a
library data centre on green space
beside SUB.
Earlier in the year, soil sciences
professor Jan DeVries and a
committee of his colleagues wrote
administration president Walter
Gage protesting the university's
plans to cover the site of the old
dairy barn for a parking lot.
Yet both the data centre site' and
the expansion of B lot were shown
on the UBC master plan long
before either protest  developed.
The  current  master  plan  has
existed in varying form since 1067
as a guideline for development of
the campus. Extensive plans for
construction, parking, green space
and road building are outlined on
Most of those who have questioned
the university's land-use policies
are unaware the administration's
development goals are firmly
outlined in the master plan.
Since the administration approved the plan of a group of San
Francisco architects eight years
ago, the plans basic concepts have
gone unnoticed and unchallenged
by most of the university community.
Models and blueprints in the
administration's physical plant
planning division show the
university divided into seven
sectors. - -*
The largest in the master plan is
the academic core between Northwest Marine Drive in the north,
B lot in the south and West Mall
and East Mall.
Other sectors are administration
and student centres including SUB
and the new administration
building, health sciences, just west
of Wesbrook Crescent, housing,
research, physical education and
field service.
The sectors are surrounded by
Wesbrook Crescent, Marine Drive
and Sixteenth Avenue to form a
continous circle of access routes to
But in the university envisioned
by the master planners, cars would
no longer leave the major routes to
park in small lots around campus.
Instead cars would park in five
major lots on the periphery of the
academic core and their drivers
then proceed by campus transit to
the buildings where they" work or
have classes.
Physical plant's demolition of
the old dairy barn was the first
move to expand B lot to form the
largest of these peripheral parking
Physical plant will eventually
extend the lot south to Stadium
Road which means the deer barn,
dog barn, and agriculture faculty's
poultry complex must be torn down

to accommodate the expansion.
Chief physical plant planner
Jordan Kamburoff says the master
plan's parking facilities could
accommodate as many as 12,500
The university's current parking
capacity is 8,500 cars.
Physical plant would have to
build elevated or underground
parking to house the extra
vehicles, Kamburoff says. The
12,500 car figure in the master plan
is based on a future enrolment of
27,500 students.

Labor code good?
VICTORIA (CUP) — Dr. Harry
Arthurs, dean of Osgoode Hall law
school, York University, has
praised and criticized British
Columbia's controversial labor
code, introduced by the New
Democratic government in 1973, in
a recently completed 79-page
"It is reasonably safe to predict
that the new code will, sooner or
later, be subjected to constitutional
analysis," Arthurs said at a
University of Victoria seminar
where  the   study   entitled   "The
Dullest Bill — Reflections on the
Labor Code of B.C." was
The section of the code which
may be unconstitutional grants the
power to the labor relations board
to define its own areas of
jurisdiction, a power normally held
by the courts.
He found it surprising that B.C.'s
labor-oriented government had put
little in the code to make the
position of a striking worker more
secure. For instance, it has not,
like    some    other    provinces,

Arthurs called the code "the

"relatively innocuous" gesture of
prohibiting the use of professional
strikebreakers "while leaving

Machines beat men in debate
Machines beat humans in an
English 100 debate Thursday.
After hearing both sides on the
topic "resolved, we must destroy
machines before they destroy us,"
judge Jan de Bruyn declared
arguments in defense of machines
as the stronger.
Jay Currie and Dave Masuhara
won the first annual competition
sponsored by the Vancouver Sun.
About 10 students and six faculty
Opening in defense of the
resolution, Rogar Ward said he
was against only those machines
which "inhibit the intrinsic value
of man."
He said he deplored man's
growing dependency on machines
and declared man is nearing. the
time when he will be reduced to a
button-pushingfi pedal-tapping
"Humanity is suffering from
mass interpersonal shock caused
by the growing prominence of the
mass communication media,"
Ward said in closing.
Masuhara, opening in defense of
machines, stressed their necessity.
Technology doesn't debase society,
it helps to preserve it, he said.
North Americans owe their
existence on this continent to the
growth of technology, he said.
Karen Koyanagi closed the affirmative argument by assailing
the ecological upsets caused by

pointed to a strip mining operation
which  had  entered   a   beautiful

because man now was able to keep
weak members of his species alive
for years.
Koyanagi said she was "openly
worried" about the future of a race
no longer in control of its own
Currie replied by satirically
defending Koyanagi's argument of

survival of the fittest. Machines
have no value if all they can do is
help save lives and raise the
world's standard of living, he said
Turning serious, Currie said man
is fitter than the machine by virtue
of his mind. Man's mind has
allowed him to create and run
machines, not vice versa.
If the world is to improve, Currie
said, man must tame himself, not
Currie, immediately following
himself in the rebuttal period,
stressed that man is in full control
of machines, whose primary use
and justification is to help and
serve manking.
Ward responded that Currie was
"brainwashed by technology." But
Ward clearly lost ground -when he
declared that all machines must be
destroyed because man is too
dangerous to have use of them.
At that point, with the debating
opposition snickering, the three
judges began scribbling notes.
The judges, though allowed only
30 seconds to decide the winners,
spent about three minutes conferring among themselves before
judge Jan de Bruyn announced
Currie and Masuhara had won.
De Bruyn said he found the
debaters' styles of delivery even,

to accommodate all the drivers
who wish to park on campus.
Physical plant director Neville
Smith says he/will need $1 million
to create a campus transit system.
Smith says an electric non-
polluting vehicle could circle the
academic core and pick up drivers
from parking areas. He rejects the
idea of a tracked vehicle as too
The 1967 master plan report by
the San Francisco architects
states: "Generally the entire
campus should be developed as a
great and varied garden."
But the plan shows no major
quantative goals for green space
on campus.
Smith said the plan aims to
preserve existing green space and
develop new green areas. Places
marked for conversion to green
space are: the bookstore-coffee
shop, (if new facilities are built),
the education huts facing Main
Mall, parking lot B-2 at the corner
of East Mall and Tenth arid a space
where Main Mall will meet the
expanded B lot.
Last fall, an ad-hoc committee
headed by Jan DeVries proposed a
green belt be made from the site of
the old dairy barn to the botanical
garden beside Thunderbird
Smith says this is "unnecessary
because the expansive parking lot
would be planted with rows of
"We are looking at density and
asking ourselves how much green
space we need," Smith says. "I
think if you look at this campus we
are doing pretty well for green
Forestry professor Phil Haddock, a member of DeVries
commitee, disagrees.
He says there is a wide sweep of
parking lots on this campus. "Our
committee didn't like to see attractive land blacked out by
pavement," he says.
Chemical engineering professor
Norman Epstein, another committee member, says the group has
tried to stop the "destruction of the
minimum green space which is
still left."
"He (DeVries) wanted to arrest
the trend of continued paving over
of land.
I have a feeling the university is
becoming a concrete jungle," says
Kamburoff says the university
can double the number of
residence beds on campus on the
land allocated to residences in the
master plan.
He says the two areas reserved
for residence construction are the
plant science area south of Totem
Park and land in Acadia Camp.
There is also space beside Walter
Gage residences for another
married couples residence, Smith
Smith says the university has no
money to carry out most of the
major projects in the master plan
in the near future. He says none of
the $8 million the Universities
Council has allocated to UBC for
capital  construction  will  go  the
master plan projects.
A presidential siting committee
must investigate each proposal in
the master plan before construction goes ahead, Smith says.

Painting the campus
Grey is not a pleasant color
when it predominates a landscape, as
law students have found out.
But Grey is the color the
landscapers plan to paint the campus
through copious use of blacktop
stretching in five major parking lots.
And it's something people have
to start protesting now or it will
become fact before anyone can get a
chance to do anything.
Now cars are terribly polluting
and fuel-wasting beasts that are going
to have to be phased out anyway as
our supply of fuel runs out and our
pollution-consciousness is raised.
So to put massive parking lots
on campus is plain stupid. They'll
become obsolete.
Instead we'll have to plan for
more rapid transit facilities on
campus — a better bus loop, for one

done about the entire situation is for

Have you ever experienced the
disquieting sensation of "reliving" a moment from your past?
That's how I felt on Friday while
munching my apple and reading
Grace Eng's review of Cassavete's
film "A Woman Under the Influence." (The Ubyssey, Feb. 21).
You can imagine my relief, then,
upon re-opening the February
issue of Ms magazine and finding
on page 29 a strikingly similar
review of the film, including a
description of Nick as a "laborer
with typical machismo values"
and of Mavel as a woman whose
"identity fed on his needs," along
with numbers of other comments
analogous to those made by Eng.
When. I hadn't been halucinating
after all.
You can imagine my grief then,
accustomed as I am to the im-
peccible professional standards
ashered to by The Ubyssey. A
reversion such as this, to a degree
of plagiarism usually practiced
only by the most naive English 100
students, poses a serious threat to
The Ubyssey's credibility as the
harbinger of truth on this campus.
If movie reviewers fail us, my
God can we trust anyone?
Perhaps Eng succumbed
momentarily and all too understandably to the pressure of
exams and essays which, as you so
perceptively acknowledged in your
editorial of Feb. 21, force us all to
avoid responsibilities previously
taken on.
But if Eng did not have time to
analyse her own response to the
film (presuming she'd seen it) then
at least she could have
acknowledged the true source of
her comments.

End Davis' policies, improve ed
OTTAWA (CUP) — The only way
things are going to get better for
university and college communities across Ontario is if the
Davis government changes its
educational policies, or is dumped
in the upcoming election.
Politics was thejDreoccupation of
the Common Front Rally held
recently at Ottawa's Glebe
Collegiate. From the tone of the
invited speakers, and the reaction
of the audience of over 200, all
indications are that political action
is only beginning.
The "Common Front for the
Preservation of Education" was
formed recently in Ottawa to
publicize and oppose the financial
cutbacks in education which the
provincial government in Queen's
Park have been implementing.
The speakers at the rally
represented all the constituent
groups of Ottawa's three post
secondary institutions — student,
faculty, and staff — though not a
single academic or non-academic
administrator was present to join
cause with the Front.
Also invited were the local
provincial members of
Parliament, Albert Roy (L.),
Michael Cassidy (NDP) and
Claude Bennett (PC). Bennett
declined the invitation and sent his
executive  assistant   John   Mc-
Dermid   to   "Jisten   and , report
Martin Loney of the Carleton
faculty delivered an animated talk
on the economic context and
meaning of the educational cutbacks.
Ontario is in the grip of the
combined forces of inflation and
recession, he argued, and the
Davis government's decision to cut
back spending on social services
will result in increased hardship
for low and middle income people
of the province.
Not only are the people who are
least able to get through inflationary 'periods   denied   basic
services such as quality education,
but "to cut back public spending is
to deliberately increase unemployment,"  according  to  Loney.
He said that the Davis government, through "slight of hand"
economic policies, was leading
Canada's richest province into a
situation where future students
will have a "third-rate education."
Anne Wells, representing the
support staff of Algonquin College,
stressed that the "very real crisis"
now facing post-secondary
education was largely the result of
a lack of long-range planning by
the Davis government.
She said that what was needed
was "positive planning for the
future" and the development of
long range goals for post-
secondary education by the
government, and the development
of a governing structure which
ensures that "students, faculty and
staff are involved in decisionmaking.
University of Ottawa students
president Robert Besner, underscored the point in his bilingual
address. He said that students at U
of 0 "don't even know what options
are going to be offered next year."
"Uncertainty is the word now.
•Students don't know where the
government is going" he added.

'Hearst tape in vault'
Underground journalist Paul
Krassner, editor of the Realist and
a monthly syndicated column,
claims to have a tape-recorded
interview with Patricia Hearst
locked in a bank vault in New
A transcript of that interview
will be published in the upcoming
issue of Crawdaddy magazine.
Krassner claims to have obtained the interview last April in
the San Francisco area. He says he
was approached by what he termed a "mutual friend and double
agent" who offered him the interview, and who then drove him
blindfolded to a house where he
met Patricia Hearst and various
other members of the SLA.
In the course of the alleged interview, Patricia speaks about her
conversion to the SLA and states
that she has made love, of her own
Code clears
UofA rules
for students
EDMONTON (CUP) — A code of
student behavior compiled by the
University of Alberta campus law
review committee, is now in effect.
The code is a clarification and
modernization of old rules that
committee spokesman R. S. Nozik
of the law faculty called "outdated
and unclear."
New wrinkles added to the code
propose guidelines for punishment
ranging from reprimands to different fines to expulsion, depending on the seriousness of the offence.
Nozik said he felt it would give a
student tribunal a basis to work
from in judging individual cases.
Despite the newness of some of
the rules, others have histories
dating back to the '20s that protect
undergraduates from "hazing."
Yet others grew out of specific
situations (e.g. to keep engineers
from spitting from university roof
Other regulations are simple
restatements of rules which have
been in effect for years, but have
simply not been enforced.
One example is the "no
smoking" regulation in all
classrooms. Punishment for
breaking this rule can be a $25 fine
or a reprimand.
There was little discussion to the
validity or enforceability of the
code but GFC felt it was important
to discuss the possible outcome of
cases rising from using the code.
Specifically, would expulsions or
suspensions become a part of the
student's record and appear on his
or her transcript for use in transfers from one institution to
Registrar Alec Cairns said that
transcripts contain the words "...
and is a student of good standing at
the U of A. . ." and asked if he
would be signing a false transcript
in cases where students might not
show "good standing."
It was generally felt in council
that records would not become
part of the student's transcripts,
but that other institutions should be
able to receive such information on
demand from the U of A registrar's
Other questions were raised
about the code and its applicability. A report from the
Graduate Students' Association
asked that the code apply to
academic and non-academic staff
as well as students. The response
was" agreement in principle, this
being the jurisdiction of the board
of governors.
free will, to all members of the
group. She says she was never
"brainwashed," though she claims
to have been  "unbrainwashed."
Patty also reveals in the alleged
interview that she didn't take part
in the April bank holdup in San
Francisco, but that a stand-in Was
used made up to look like her. She
said she was too nervous to take
In other parts of the alleged
interview, Patty refers to herself
as a "hippy" and a "white nigger."
Meanwhile Krassner says the
interview is genuine and that he
will play it in full over radio station
WBAI in New York sometime this
month. The FBI in San Francisco
says the bureau had no knowledge
of such an interview, but will look
into the matter. No reason was
given for Krassner's delay in
releasing the interview.

PF discovers poetry
Modern poetry is about many things; idqas are converted into objects, eyes peek out of walls, senses are
confused. A poet may use metaphors to present deeply
personal feelings as he tries to find the special language of
his own personality. Or a poet may juxtapose images and
the tension between the images contributes to the
meaning of the poem.
Sometimes an actual experience is the basis for the
poem, sometimes an intangible flight of fancy is made
What is important to understand in a modern poem is
not the thought. The reader should feel the sensory impulses of the poem. Move with the surface. FoHow the
poems on the primary level to get the feeling of the intended meaning.
In the most successful poems, something happens.
Things change. Dreams and reality are combined.
The poems in this special writing issue of PF deal with
loneliness, landscape, mysticism and human relations.
Some are humorous, some are serious, some are
failures. What is important is the poets speaking in
their own voices.
Some of the poets are searching for this voice. They
may whisper timidly or shout hysterically.
BUt that's the communicative function of modern
poetry. The most successful poems will change the life of
the listener.
Thousands of years ago the poet was the maker of
images, the old geezer whom we listened to as we sat
around the campfire. His words were magic. He created
Poetry has not changed at all. That's why PF has this
special issue. Thales No. 2

UM... UH...HOW     '

I see you mostly in the darkness
deep beneath your stony barriers of pride,
tunnelling towards a worn and buried aisle
for the stiff steps of a bandaged virgin bride,
shovelling to imprison your sleeping lover
within a tomb of rules
for fools who have«ignored the cattle staring
in the farmyard's muddied pools.

began to fumble with your name,
just when the visionaries are home

and hotly sensing fingertips

in rooms with butterflies in jars.
My dirty boots were caught up
in your combed blonde hair,
from your cat eyes I noticed
I wasn't even there
where the dim walls were lined
with laughing one-time losers,
passing in a moony solitude, saying
beggars can be choosers
beggars can be choosers.

The Sabbath Bride
The night is clear and the stars
A magic canopy, a bridal canopy.
You walked around me
Seven times, six times
You smiled, a radiant bride,
Blushing and avoiding
My eyes, while my friends,
Now dead, laughed
As they held the sides
Of the chupa.
And when you returned
I was dizzy, never so alive.
You were old, wrinkled
With sagging breasts,
Your white dress had swallowed,
Your trees was torn.
And when I raised my leg
To break the glass • *
You were gone
And a pool of blood
Covered the floor.
Broken Beer Bottles
I remember all those broken beer bottles
and how the shitkicking way my dad could curse—
and my mother giving it full bull right back at him
all those long and cold white knuckled nights.
Felt how I huddled hidden under the damp blankets
so uncomfortably child-quiet on the top bunkbed,
heart in hand, throughout those shiver winters.
Just a raw kid clutching at the sheets, unable to
lock out the snap crackling of their gutter jingo.
For there their hatred was one born of a love
that they had not long lost those wintry nights.
Was a malice that remained etched in the frosted window
panes of all of those fears my family taught me.
Yet they still remain locked in my roughout family
jigsaw — my momma-love's anger, my punch drunken poppa
and all those broken beer bottles lying like nerve
endings, shattered in brown amberglass glinting back
from the old kindling box by the kitchen stove where
our fat ginger cat lingered, catnapping through it all...

And I reach

And dressed in a trench coat
With a Bogart lisp,
A sad expression, a limp,
and a number
Tattooed on my wrist,
I searched for you
In the likeliest places,
In bars and brothels
and rooming houses always too late.
You had left just a short time
Before with madmen, murderers,
Heroin pedlars, or sailors
Who had drunk too much ashore.
From this altar on a mountain top
Where it is winter
And always dark,
I look out on a sea of graves
A parking lot of dead birds,
That stretches from century
to century beyond the horizon
The gage of recorded time.
Each generation worse than the last
Composed of baser men,
For who amoung us has talked with God
Or kissed the Sabbath Bride?
For me you are more than a memory.
- *     *     *
As I bless the Sabbath candles
And read again your love letters
In the flickering light,
Swaying back and forth dressed in black,
Moaning and pounding
My fist
Against my chest,
I wait for the silence
Of weeping violins,
The raising of the dead,
Fire and the end of time
Then I will hold
The Sabbath bride
In my Arms again
And weep.

THE      UBYSSEY An Episode Of Some Notoriety
An Introduction Of
Some Notoriety
one might suppose
things all depend upon
the way in which
the wind blpws,
and even so
one never knows
unless a wetted finger
is propped into the air.
Of course there are those
who would never dare
expose themselves
to the temper
of the day,
one cannot forget
largely the rest
who never really care
one way or the next,
I must say.
Been Introduced,
We Take Our Teas;
Pass The Sugar Please
We are three,
Ha ha.
Ho ho.
Hee hee.
Sitting for Schumann
Having tea.
I have two lumps

looks rather feminine.
Of course
the view is divine
(my my).
. And certainly
-it is too early
for wine.
We really should wait
untill we dine.
Chit, chit.
Chat, chat.
Imagine that!
What a lovely new hat.
I'm really too fat,
Cough. Singasong.
Talk philosophy, politics;
banter along
On and off.
Yours and mine.
Neither. Not.
The weather?
Are they together?
Rather hot.
Not a lot.
Thank you.
The squash in the garden
is starting to rot.
Is that the phone?
I beg your pardon.
Do you do it alone?
Incidentally Joan,
that is a rather smart

with the red polka-dot,
and black ankle-boot.
A More Exotic Episode
Hello, hello.
My hand is there.
Your feet are here.
Oh Lord, my dears,
you are a pair.
May I have my foot?
This is a spot.
All mix and match.
My belly is hot.
Your what is which?
All match and mix.
What time have you got?
This is a fix.
My Great-Aunt forgive me.
we're full of tricks.
Ouch, ouch.
O blast.
0 fiddlesticks.
Did you yawn?
Where's the john?
1 think he's gone.
Your socks are still on.
My darlings
do you think
we can make it till dawn?
A Breakfast of Rather
Hard-Boiled Eggs
And Cinnamon Toast
A glance across.
We are rather tired rolls.
The hard butter
pokes the toast
full of holes.
Such a great deal to say.
One of us goes
to the market today.
La, la.
One stays.
Da, da.
One is roast beef.
All are none.-
A drop of grease

Vision In Black: A Fragment
She strides across the chapel down hallways and stairs,
stamps it all with her private imprimatur: sanctions this
is mine. The Mother Super Superior is quick.
"What are you doing here, Sistahs?"
"Oh, an. . .we'reonourway to chapel, Mother."
"Then go. Don't stand here wasting time."
We scatter like a flight of sparrows before a predator.
She catches me when I slip. Watches closely when a rule
is broken — there's flesh beneath this habit, so why is she
outraged by human odor?
I fear her as the deity itself. Jehovah manifest. She has
a presence as distinct from myself as cloth is from flesh.
She is my Mother upon whose matronly breast a hard,
black cross is pillowed.
She calls me into her office. The lid is shut and I'm inside with her. The box even measures a perfect square. I
hate it.
I am aware of my pimples and pale skin, the cowlick in
my oily butch cut which displaces the repressive white
postulant's cap.
Her smile is careful. Just enough but not too much. She
wants to surprise me.
It's trivial, A sin of offense or omission. I forget which.
But stars still fall from the sky, the heavens boil putrid
black. There are cosmic vibrations and I am in the centre
with the walls to my back and Mother dead ahead,
plastered between the two.
Her words make me cry. My tears are clumsy (when
are they not?) and blotch my face. Pain is an unwanted
pregnancy; a child I cannot afford to have.
"Really Sister, control yourself," she says coldly.
I leave her office, jerk my sleeve on the knob as I exit: a
gauche mime of adolescence.
I go to my cell. Silence and space are intimate friends.
And Jesus, he's there too. On the cross.
Jesus is the cross-man, visually thrust at us, before,
behind, around. Marked, scarred, lacerated on the heart.
In him, for him, with him, all virtue and guilt find its
At 5:00 we rise to do Him honor. Our suffering hero.
Knees hit hard wooden floors, morning oblations are
made, while thin bodies shiver beneath muslin
"Jesus, I give to you, all that I have, all that I am."
I am tagged like the others. My number is #34. It is
stitched in bright red on all my clothes. I am thirty-fourth
in line to see Jesus. If and when the absent Bridegroom
comes. Nobody has ever made it with Him.
And #34is protocol: it defines my position. That means I
learn to endure Sr. Marguerite's absurd snobbishness and
Sr. Melanie's bad breath; that most of my vertical life is
spent wedged between those two 8 in the long black line,
three times a day in the refectory, seven times a day in
chapel. When we leave the convent for an outing, we
march two by two, like Noah's remnant flock,'down the
grey blocks of Manhattan.
During the day I am quiet, self-effacing. I say, "Yes
Mother" and "No Mother" and stand aside for elder nuns
■ in the dark hallways.
Thank God, at night I can escape to my cell. There is a
narrow bed for a single body — our sense of community
stops at the cell door.
God is not mighty. Majesty leaves me cold. He is Abba,
father. I sleep as if my bed were a womb, curled tight, my
knees drawn to my chest. "When Israel was a child I loved
him and out of Egypt I called my son. .. ."
Things happen to my head at 17: I am afraid of HER.
But still parched, dry for something that will flow, even
bleed in me.
One night I am particularly restless. I can read. What?
My Imitation of Christ, like new, is shelved on the top of
my prie dieu.
It is possible to sneak down to the children's library —
there is a story about a belly dancer, slave to a Roman
soldier (written in eighth grade diction). The "good"
parts have their ears pinned back.
I do it. I steal down the black linoleum stairs to the small
room. I take the book;
But sin doesn't pay — not in the convent. Not with a
conscience. Guilt takes over and gelds any joy I might
have. Remorse is my catharsis. If I can feel badly enough,
long enough, I am freed. Redeemed by the Blood until the
next crucifixion.
And Mother always at the head, represents the distorted
Trinity, demanding the constant sacrifice.
And to her, I confess my faults each Saturday night,
along with the rest of the family.
"I'm sorry, Mother that I was disobedient to the Rule by
reading a secular book after Compline."
"What book, Sistah?"
This question surprises me.
Silence. I hesitate but not for too long.
"Ashaba, the Slave Girl." Titters then from the other
It is painful to look into her eyes. Does she know howl
feel? The awful shame comes, drenching like hot urine. I
can taste my exposure and humiliation.
A long silence follows. It gives space to my shame to
expand, to spread, to grow.
Mother curtsies to Sr. Melanie who begins her tedious
litany. At least her faults are ordinary. No erotic books
from the children's library.

Molly Lights A Candle
What of it? The dirt
singeing our eyes
praying with eyes covered breathing
without them
Molly lights a candle can burn
the pew down
Molly lights a candle
adds it to the row
This one's for Ma
with eyes of blue
this one's for dad
he died too
Molly lights a candle can smolder
her flesh
Molly lights a candle
adds it to the row
This one's for sister
who never saw light
this one's for brother
for his last sight
Dim light sheds
no light
this saint church
the soundlessness
in an air reeking
Molly kneels the scent
in her ears. . . .

Once upon a time there
was a student who selected herself out of a summer job. (Oh
no. we're not just picking on girls.
We've seen guys do it, too,;
She wanted to be an architect,
this kid. So she held out for
a job that had something to do
with architecture. None came
along that year, and by the time,
she decided to settle for something else, it was too late. All the
jobs were gone. So was her
first year's tuition.
Moral: Don't hold out for the
impossible dream.
Who knows.Your Canada
Manpower Centre might introduce
you to a whole new field. Maybe
you'll like your summer job
so much you'll want to make a
career out of it someday.

The Nature
of the Travelling Man
He doesn't know where he lost it
It might have been last night
when the lights were low
perhaps the slippery lady knows
Maybe he bartered, or gave it away
but today it's gone
just as his socks
his soul hangs
like a carrot on a string
called tomorrow
— Derek MacNeill
Gardener's Poem
Break through the
that seperates us
soil a flower grows in
among the plants
and other flowers
Break through the coarse vines of stagnant
cliches entangled foilage
that clutter our speech kills the seeds
Free the system
of nervousness
long enough
to give
without restraint
reach out beyond the maze
to breathe and then
breathing out again
the cycle is done

Stormy plot played well
The production of Shakespeare's The
Tempest at the Frederic Wood Theatre
cannot be faulted for its effort to manage the
bard's most difficult play. The problem with
The Tempest for any theatre is simply that
it is not very dramatic. Generally regarded
as Shakespeare's last complete play, em
it is to get interested in someone telling a
story in 17th century English.
Yet, the Frederic Wood production was
ambitious in its use of properties both to
attain the esoteric sense of the play and
compensate for the dramatic shortcomings.
I left the theatre with a good feeling, the
result of an honest effort, one that had its
occasions. The Stephano — Trinculo —
Caliban sequences, for instance, came
across well, though they would have been
better if Trinculo's voice hadn't broken so
many of his lines. And Peter Haworth's
Prospero emerged as a strong point.
The production boasts flamboyant
costuming and set decoration. Wood
nymphs and fairies are dressed for their
appearance although imitation tits seemed
a bit much. And the technical properties
(lighting, sound effects, and background)
were more of less effective. The thunder
tended to be a bit loud. The songs were done
One expecially awkward moment occured

The Tempest
Written by W. Shakespeare
directed by John Brockington
at the Freddy Wood Theatre
bodying his farewell to the stage, The
Tempest shows more the Bard's mastery of
poetics (metrics, sounds and imagery) than
his genius as a dramatist. «
The second scene, for instance, is no more
than a lengthy narrative needed to relay the
necessary background to the island antics.
Miranda's brief interjections, gasps of
amazement and such, serve only to remind
contemporary audiences how really difficult
Space travel buff
ponders 'galaxy9
In a California laboratory scientists prepare to launch the first
spacecraft equipped to look for life on Mars, while their colleagues
examine newly-received data from similar planetary probes. At
various locations around the world, radio astronomers are pointing
their telescopes skyward in search of the first message from an
extraterrestrial civilization to be received by man.
Meanwhile, other scientists are at work drawing up plans for
interstellar spacecraft or searching for clues of the existance of
civilizations on other stars.
These and other activities are examined in Other Worlds, by Carl
Sagan, who today is one of the leading advocates of space exploration. He has advanced his favorite cause through books such

as Intelligent Life in the Universe, and his popular The Cosmic
Connection, as well as being a frequent guest on television
coverage of the Apollo program. With Other.Worlds, Sagan has
produced a most eloquent case for his favorite cause.
Other Worlds is a richly illustrated work which examines all
fronts of man's search for extraterrestrial life from UFOs to in-
terplanatary probes. Sagan is especially suited for the job since he
is one of the world's leading figures in the study of exobiology,
which he defines as "the study of life elsewhere."
Sagan says in the book that he first became interested in extraterrestrial life through science fiction books when he was a boy. But
he found that "science is far more exciting than science fiction, far
more intricate, far more subtle — and science has the additional
value of being true."
Other Worlds could be called a celebration of science —
celebrated through the fruits of scientific advance and through past
literary and artistic prognostications of what lies beyond the earth.
Although Sagan disputes the validity of the currently popular
ideas of Astrology, UFOs, and the "Chariots of the Gods" theories,
he discusses the possibilities of life on other planets at great length,
including the possibility of macroscopic life on Mars. Sagan asks
the compelling question: "Is it really possible, in our Milky Way
Galaxy of 250 billion stars, in a Universe of perhaps 100 billion
galaxies, that our Sun is the only star with an inhabited planet?"
Topics from the origin of life to plans for interstellar travel are
examined. One of the book's most fascinating sections is a tour of
the planets as seen through the eyes of the most recent interplanetary spacecraft. The book is spiced by cartoons which
speculate on man's first contacts with life from other planets in a
humorous manner.
While Sagan's text is fascinating and extremely readable, it does
not fire the imagination as powerfully as Arthur C. Clarke has done
in his works which speculate on future scientific endeavors. But
when Sagan's text is combined with Jerome Agel's graphics, Other
Worlds succeeds in awakening the mind to the possibilities which
are as wide and vast as the universe itself.
Although science is glorified throughout, it is examined
realistically. Sagan rightly calls the Apollo program "political"
and the main thrust of his look at space exploration is at unmanned
probes and at prospects for the distant future. -Along the same
visionary line, Sagan speculates on the possible results of radio
astronomers' searches for the first message from a civilization on
another planet.
Other Worlds raises many questions which may seem academic
today, but these questions may be of fundamental importance in
the not so distant future. Books such as this can only hasten the day
when earthlings will contact alien civilizations • by opening the
minds of many people to the possibilities that exist "out there."
write a forgiveness scene between Prospero
and Antonio, the brother who usurped his
dukedom. Apparently the bard was more
interested in the poetics of his play than
dramatic necessities. To compensate for
Shakespeare's oversight, the Freddie Wood
production had Antonio deliver a aquiescent
bow to Prospero after the rest of the
characters moved into the background. The
play could use a formal scene between
Prospero and Antonio because Antonio is a
scheming character and, if we are to believe
that he has undergone a transformation for
the better on the island, some such scene is
required. But the way this production
handled it did not make it.
There were also problems with interpretation. The Ferdinand — Miranda
Naffair is overly sentimental. Shakespeare's
dialogue contains puns and undertones of
ribaldry which suggest something more
humorous than the production allowed.
Moreover, Prospero leaned heavily on
some of his lines. When he tells Miranda not
too get too excited over this "brave new
world," Prospero has too much cynicism for
a man who has arranged this little drama to
return to the world of Naples and Milan.
When Ariel tells Prospero that the king of
Naples and the others are spaced out according to plan, Prospero asks Ariel what he
would do if the decision making belonged to
the fairy. Then, after Ariel tells him that he
would have mercy on the'Ring and company
and free them, Prospero sounds like he is
just discovering the fact that, yes, he can
forgive them for the crimes against him.
But, Prospero has plotted the whole
drama and exercises his talents to bring off
properly. That he should suddenly discover
he will free the king and the others is not in
keeping with the sense of a plan directting
the course of Prospero's actions.
Despite the inconsistencies and little
absurdities which entered the production,
The Tempest is entertaining in its ambition.
Prospero's final speech was done with a real
sensitivity for Shakespeare's verse. I have
to admire the effort made by the cast and
production crew with the play.
How much should you drink?
Everyone has a limit, and overindulgence of any sort
— in work or play, food or drink — does nothing good
for you.
Fortunately, most Canadians aren't interested in proving anything when it comes to beverage alcohol. They
look on their favorite drink not as a challenge, but as
a pleasure to be enjoyed in moderation.
How much should you drink? To most people that's no
problem. But if it is a problem ta someone you know,
why not urge that person to see a physician. You may
well be doing him or her a favor.

If housing plan approved
UBC will ask gov't for hotel cash
From page 1
government   will   provide   extra
money for student housing if the
council recommends such action.
Mochnacki said the committee
has also spoken with officials in the
provincial housing and education
departments, but would not give
their names because he said
premature release of the information would disrupt
The housing committee will
discuss the hotel buying plans at its
meeting Wednesday. If committee
members formally approve the
idea, then UBC will approach the
government for cash to buy the
hotels, Rohringer said.
Real estate agents interviewed
Thursday disagreed about
feasibility of the committee's hotel
buying plans.
One agent, who declined to be
identified, said about, the only
downtown hotels within the price
range Rohringer proposes would
be "like the Anchor or Drake."
He said the Riviera Motor Inn on
Robson was recently sold for about
$22,000 a unit and the provincial
government paid about $26,000 a
unit for the controversial Casa
Loma motel in Burnaby.
But another agent said the
committee might be able to grab a
moderate-quality hotel with a
small beer parlor and with limited
restaurant facilities for
Rohringer's announced prices.
Rohringer said the hotel buying
plan is a flexible solution to the
housing problem which would
bring students and community
closer together.
He said some students,
especially first-year students,
might be frightened at the thought
of living downtown, but older
students would probably enjoy
living in the city centre.
"We should try to offer accommodation to students who have
reached the maturity to be able to
solve the problems by themselves," he said.
Rohringer said students could
form management committees to
instruct the new residents about
what to expect and watch for in
downtown living and to help
establish a life style to overcome
problems that might develop.
He admitted problems such as
the availability of drugs are
serious downtown, but asked:
"How safe is it for 30,000 people in
a daytime place such as on campus."
He said he has no plans to buy
apartments or rooming houses
which would displace permanent
tenants. "That would be a bad
move politically, because it would
decrease housing for the general
public," he said.
Mochnacki said downtown hotels
are currently in over supply so
purchase of a few buildings won't
disrupt the city's tourist trade. He
said the hotels could be used for
conventions in the summer similar
to ones currently held at UBC
campus residences.
Rohringer emphasized the hotels
are resellable and can be purchased quickly, actions that would
be difficult if the university administration tried to build on-
campus residences.
He said cost per student would
depend on the types of financing
available but "it wouldn't be worth
going into residences that cost
A spokesman for the Central
Mortgage and Housing Corp., a
federal Crown corporation that
provides mortgage money for
much social housing, said his
agency could fund parts of the
hotel purchase. But he said, "there
is practically no money to build
student residences this year."
Rohringer said in addition that
CMHC will mortgage only $7,000 a
bed, a figure set about 10 years
ago, which is not realistic today.
Therefore most of the money will
have to come from the provincial
government, he said.
Rohringer said food could be
provided by using existing hotel
restaurant facilities or purchasing
and installing in each room a small
kitchen unit containing a
refrigerator, sink and stove.
He said hotel bars and lounges
could be retained for exclusive use
of students if they wished.
Mochnacki said committee
members want to find if students
would like to live in hotels and, if
they do, how they would like to live
in them. He said the committee
will incorporate student feedback
into its policy decisions.
Committee members besides
Mochnacki and Rohringer are:
students Nadine McDonnell and
Dave Fuller; Allan Shirran,
director of student services and
woman's dean Margaret Fulton.

All told there will be over 350
athletes competing in 10 weight
classes in two wrestling styles.over
two age divisions, junior and
Greco-Roman is the oldest of
wrestling styles. The competitors
concentrate on offensive and
defensive manoeuvres using the
upper body, not the legs. It favors
the more powerful wrestler as well
as those who have the judo-like
ability to throw their opponent. The
Greco-Roman competition will be
limited to Sunday.
Friday and Saturday will feature
the more familiar freestyle
wrestling. Both arms and legs are
used in this type of competition,
which is more popular because of
the higher intensity of action'and
wider variety of strategies and
The Thunderbirds' Kyle
Raymond is the defending senior
Greco-Roman champion but
Laycoe expects him to face some
stiff American competition in his
bid to gain both titles.
"Gary Stenslund is a super-
heavyweight from Oregon, he was
the American national champion
for three or four straight years, so
he has got to be the man to beat.
"Ray King from Idaho weighs in
at over 400 pounds, he was
American junior champion last
year. He is only going to compete
in the Greco-Roman competition
and is going to be tough," said
Laycoe figures the 180.5-pound
class is going to be the toughest.
Greg Srobel, a two-time NCAA
champion, who ran up 81 straight
wins in his last two years in
university competition will be the
toughest American.

finalist at 190 pounds has decided
to drop to 180.5for this tournament.
UBC has two good wrestlers at
this level also. Tera Hryb, 'Bird
assistant coach this year, was the
champion until last year. He was
injured at the Commonwealth
Games and this will be his first
competition since then. Craig
Delahunt took a silver medal at the
CIAU for UBC in this division this
year. All are accomplished
wrestlers and many have international experience.
George Richey from UBC, a
national team member and intercollegiate champion, was sixth
in the world at 190.5 pounds and is
the favorite this time.
His main competition may come
from El ven Munkio from Ontario.
Munkio was the CIAU champion at

UBC women coxswains barred
from all-male Block Banquet
Three women coxswains of the
UBC men's rowing team were told
yesterday that they could not attend the Annual Block Banquet
sponsored by the men's Big Block
The three, Jeanette Whyte,
Jayne Postuk and Ginny Horal,
were told they would be turned
away if they decided to turn up at
the banquet, held last night at the
Faculty Club.
Whyte and Postuk emphasized
they were not trying to get into'the
banquet in order to strike a blow
for women's liberation. "We are
part of the crew — one of the guys.
We also wake up at five in the
morning to train and if we don't
show up they can't row."
According to Buzz Moore,
assistant head of the men's
athletics office, who is helping the
student-run Big Block Club
organize the banquet, these women
are not recognized by the club as
athletes at all. He pointed to the
fact that in some countries women
coxswains are even banned.
Moore said the Block banquet
has never in its 62-year history
allowed women in. He said it has
always been a male-only dinner
and it sometimes gets rather
rough. He said the Faculty Club
where the dinner was held could
not hold that many people and
therefore the wives and girl friends
of the athletes and the faculty were
not invited. He said if they opened
the dinner to these women they
would have to open it to all the rest.
Marilyn Pomfret, head of the
women's athletics office said the
three coxswains will be welcome to
go to the women's Block Banquet
to be held next Wednesday, but she
pointed out that it would be
meaningless for these women to go
to this banquet because there is no
women's rowing team in the
present UBC athletic program.
Pomfret also said for their part
the women's club would welcome
all those involved with the
women's sports program, no
matter if they are male or female.
Whyte and Postuk also raised the
question of whether they would be
eligible to win any Block letters
that are given to outstanding UBC
athletes every year.
Mel Reeves, president of the Big
Block Club this year, could not be
contacted for comment, but Moore,
as an unofficial spokesman for the
club, said the three would not be
eligible simply because the club
does not acknowledge them as
Pomfret said these girls are also
ineligible for the women's letters,
because rowing isn't a part of the
women's athletics program.
She however said anyone interested in forming a rowing team
for women here on campus can do
so. All they have to do is to find
enough people to start a team, find
a coach and a boat.
So unless they can start a new
team or make the Block Clubs
change their minds, the three
women coxswains on the UBC
men's rowing team will simply
have to grin and bear it. To those
who matter in UBC sports they
don't seem to exist.

Canada has one of the finest
educational systems in the world. But
many Canadian employers unjustifiably underpay some very well-
educated graduates of that system.
A 24-year-old male, leaving university with a degree, earns on the
average 19 per cent more in his first
job than a woman of the same age
with the same degree. A male high-
school graduate can expect an average
34.2 per cent more than the equivalent female graduate. It just isn't
It just isn't right, either, that
long before graduation, some schools
still insist on channelling girls into
home economics classes and boys
into industrial arts.
Some girls make excellent mechanics and engineers. Some boys
make excellent designers and chefs.
Why curb their natural talents?
There is no logical reason why
we should. Equal educational opportunities are guaranteed us under
law, but there are prejudices and prec-
edents. Society expects women to
cook and sew because it expects them
to get married one day. Don't men
get married too? Maybe they should
learn household skills as well.
When it comes to employment,
the same kind of archaic thinking
brings us less pay and recognition.
Certainly women get married, but
many keep on working. Of some three
million women working in Canada
today, more than 50 per cent are
married. Why are they being paid less
than their husbands? Because they are
married? How about a single working
woman? It costs her as much to live
as a single working man. So why is
she also being forced to live on less?
Particularly when 50.0 per cent of all
Canadian women in the labour force,
having completed their high-school
education, have gone on to take
post-secondary training, compared to
39.3 per cent of the men. So no one
can use the excuse that working
women are less qualified.
The entire situation must change.
But if it is to change, we have to
start thinking of ourselves as equals.
And demanding that others do, too.
We have to teach our children to
think differently. Because they are
the next generation.of educators and
homemakers, employers and employees. We must break down the
barriers of prejudice for ourselves
and remove them entirely for our
