«I won't go.

A plea for national unity by 
former Finance Minister Jean 
Chretien raised enthusiastic 
applause from a crowd of more 
than 700 people in Dinwoodie 
Lounge yesterday. 

“We all have become too 
parochial, said Chretien. “We all 
think of ourselves as Albertans 
or Ontarians first, forgetting 
that we are Canadians too.” 

He urged students to look at 
the broader, historical aspects of 
Confederation, saying that 
Canada has the potential of 
being together in tough and easy 
times, sharing the good and 

“We've come a long way,” 
he said. “When you _ have 
something like this it’s worth 
fighting for.” ; 

Chretien also discussed oil 
pricing policy and termed the $2 
per barrel per year increase 
“inadequate”, saying “a new 
agreement will have to be 
negotiated with the producing 

But he stopped short of 
advocating the world price for 
Canadian oil. 

“We need an oil price that 
reflects the cost of production in 
Canada and provides a sufficient 
return to the oil companies for 
exploration,” said Chretien. 

His stance drew some heck- 
Ling from the audience. 

~Chretien also said he has 
little doubt the next government 
will be Liberal. 

He said voters wanted a 
change in government last spr- 
ing, but now after seven months

Students sue CTV 

TORONTO (CUP) - Five Un-

suing the producers of CBC's 
WS program for libel.

well grounded.

The council of ‘Chinese

The «CCIO~ chair, Dr;

the students’ decision to sue.

Voting rules change 

WARNING: voting rules have changed—and your candidate 

may be the loser. 

Students’ Union election results will be tabulated with a 
different type of preferential ballot. Here’s how it works. 

When voting for positions with more than two candidates (vp 
academic and Board of Governors representative in this election), 
voters may select their first preference, their second preference, 

and so on. 

When tabulating the results, however, the computer will allot 
points to the candidates so that a first choice vote is worth more 
than a second choice vote, and so on: 

For example, if there were “‘n” candidates, a first choice vote - 
would be worth (n-1) points to the candidate, a second choice vote 
would be worth (n-2) points, and so on, until a last choice vote is 
worth (n-n) points to the candidate. 

It is important to note that selecting more than one candidate 
“dilutes” your first choice vote. Therefore, if you feel strongly that 
only one candidate is suitable for a position do not mark second, 

third or other choices. 

If-you like two candidates, you should mark them first and 

second and leave the others blank so 

candidates points. 

you do not give the other 

If you are not sure how best to mark your ballot, the students 
working at the polls will help you. 

League for ethnic purity? 

“Keep Canada white” — 

McCarthy-era —_ paranoia 
resurfaced Thursday as an 
organization official warned 

about 80 spectators of the perils

national Marxist conspiracy.” 
The Canadian League of.

Deputy National Director

‘Butler, an Australian 
emigrant, told the  gospel- 

meeting crowd that - Canada

contributing to the communists 
at this time . . . and put the 
Vietnamese refugees on the 
islands in Southeast Asia.” 

He said if the refugees were 
genuinely anti-communist, as 
they claim, they would provide 
“another buffer zone for us.” 

Europeans make up only 6.4 
per cent of the total world 
population, he said. “If we wish 
to retain our own identity... 
why shouldn’t we?” he asked. 

His observation was greeted 
with loud applause and ex- 
clamations of “Hear, hear.” 

He urged the audience to re- 
read the Bible. “People are 
letting their hearts; not their 
heads, rule,” he said.

Liberals campaigned and made

National Notes 

Research funding increases 

OTTAWA (CUP) — The Conservative government has 
announced reséarch funding increases of $8 million for 1980-81 
which it claims will create several hundred new jobs on Canadian 

Heward Grafftey, minister of state for science and 
technology, said Jan. 31 the Natural Sciences and Engineering 
Research Council (NSERC), which received a budget increase of 
$39 million in November, will get an additional $2.8 million and 
the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) 
will receive a $5.8 million budget boost. 

Grafftey said the increases mean the NSERC’s budget has 

~ gone up 35 per cent over 1979-80 while the SSHRC’s budget will 

have risen 16.2 per cent. 

Grafftey, speaking in Sherbrooke, also mentioned a $12.2 
million increase for the Medical Research Council (MRC) 
announced earlier this year by health minister David Crombie, as 
a key move toward increasing federal support for research. 

“Research and development is the cornerstone of Canada’s 
economic development and the increased funding, in addition to 
promoting excellence in university reserach and encouraging more 
of our outstanding students to go into research, will stimulate the 
creation of a larger number of interesting and better paying jobs,” 
Grafftey said. 

The minister said the $9.8 million budget increase to the three 
councils will help achieve the government target of R and D 
expenditures of 2.5 per cent of the gross national product during 
the 1980s. 

Liberals promise student input 

OTTAWA (CUP) — The Liberal Party has come up with a 
campaign promise to introduce student representation on the 
upcoming federal-provincial task force on student aid. But 
whether the provinces would go along with the suggestion is 

Liberal campaign youth director Jean Gagnon said Jan. 31 
the party supports student representation on the task force, which 
the Conservatives created last year. Earlier in the campaign, 
Conservative secretary of state, David MacDonald, announced 
that students would not be allowed representatives on the task 
force, which was established to look into the whole student aid 
question in detail. 

The NDP had pushed theConservatives to allow a student to 
sit on the task force before the election. was called. 

The National Union of Students (NUS), which has been 
fighting for student representation, was optimistic but cautious 
about the Liberal promise. 

“We're pleased that they've made this promise and hope 
they'll stick to it if elected,” said NUS executive officer Morna 
Ballantyne, “but we also realize that the provinces are involved in 
the decision and we have to make sure the Liberals, if elected, are 
firm on student representation.” 

Students protest wet T-shirts 

LENNOXVILLE (CUP) — The wet t-shirt and muscle beach 
contests have been dropped from the Bishop’s University winter 
carnival because of student protest. 

Several members of the Bishop’s student council had tried 
unsuccessfully to have the contest removed from the carnival 
schedule at a Jan. 15 council meeting but a majority overruled 
their objections. 

However, a petititon circulated on campus by the Bishop’s 
status of women committee to have the contests dropped soon 
gained more than a hundred signatures and council again debated 
a motion to stop the contests at its Jan. 22 meeting. 

Bradley Dow, a council member, argued that the contests 
went against the best interests of the university. 

“We are a university and the role of the university should be to 
lead society in elevating dignity and human rights,” he said. “These 
contests are also contrary to the spirit of the carni, which is 
supposed to be participatory and nat spectator oriented.”

’ Human rights concern for Roche 




ph Karl Wilberg 


by Peter Michalyshyn 

Member of Parliament 
Doug Roche discussed human 
rights in the world today at a 
meeting of the Political Science 
Undergraduate Association 
(PSUA) last. week. 
‘ Political terrorism is rabid, 
in over 70 countries, said Roche. 
In Cambodia alone, over two 
million people were killed 
methodically by the Pol Pot 

“There has never been as: 

much potential to solve the 
problem of poverty. We have the 
economic potential” Roche said, 
but “we haven’t the political 
potential for implementation.” 

Instead, over one million 
dollars per minute is spent on the 
arms race, Roche pointed out. 

“We cannot achieve security 
through the arms race,” and yet 

“we cannot realistically disarm 

unilaterally, he said. 

Roche called 
“two-edged coin.” Canada must 
stay part of the “western 
alliance” on one edge yet must do 
everything possible to build for 
peace through mutual disarma- 
ment, on the other. 

“It’s a paradox . . 
dilemma” Roche said. 

. its-a 

world is a very complex place. . 

Beware of those who say there 

_ are black and white solutions.” 

Roche questioned the 

security a: 

meaning of the “good life” if we 
cannot feel satisfied with the 
“human condition.” 

He said there is an “integral 
relationship between us as 
human beings and as a global 
community.” sar 

“Its not there yet, but its 
coming,” he said. 

Roche said this human 
revolution is inevitable and is 
happening economically and 

He admitted Canada could 
do more to find solutions to 
quicken the process, however. 

Aside from the Nobel prize 
winning exploits of the. late 
Prime Minister L.B. Pearson, 
Roche said we have not been 

creative or daring enough, and 
have not been initiating enough 
proposals to cure the dismal 
human prospect. 

Persistently questioned on 
the option of a neutral status for 
Canada in foreign affairs, Roche 
said he liked the idea, but it was 
not politically wise. : 

He noted that in the 60s 
when Canadian forces were 
reduced in Eutope, Canada lost 
prestige in the West. 

However, Roche did say 
Canada was neutral in one sense. 
“We are the only country with 
the capability to build nuclear 
weapons, who does not yet have 
them.” :

The Soviet Union’s involve- 
ment in Afghanistan was not an 
act of aggression or intervention, 
according to Bill Kashtan. 

Rather, the Soviet, Union 
was honoring a 1978 treaty with

Kashtan said both internal

Afghanistan’s call for assistance. 

_ Reaction was lively and opposition vocal when Bill Kashtan, 
national leader of the Communist Party of Canada addressed Dr. 
Max Baird’s Political Science 202 class last Friday. 

But Baird estimated that only one-quarter of the students 
were openly hostile during Kashtan’s half-hour speech on the 
Communist Party’s views on Canadian economic and foreign 


And Baird says it’s a valuable experience for his students to be 
exposed to an alternative point of view. 

Kashtan didn’t seem bothered by the hostile audience, either. 

“I have no objection when people yell and swear at me,” 
laughs Kashtan. “I know there are differences.”

discussion lately, and some students seem to see it as a magical 
solution to all their problems. Last week the Council on Student 

Executive that the bill of rights be thoroughly studied. 

If passed, the bill will have far-reaching ramifications on 
relationships between faculty, administration and students. The 
following questions attempt to deal with some aspects of the bill. 
(1) What does the Student Bill of Rights mean to you? 

It means that most of your rights and obligations will be 
explicitly proclaimed. At present, some of these, such as 
protection against improper academic evaluation, are only 
assumed to exist. 

(2) What if we don’t have a Student Bill of Rights? : 

At present, we have to rely on the good will of university 
officials. Most basic rights on procedures are stated in the GFC 
regulations. The parts dealing with principles are largely omitted. 
The result — when a situation not covered by the regulations 
arises, an official has to use his discretion. The only requirement is 
that his discretion must reflect good faith, reasonableness and 
professional competence. With the bill of rights, he would have a. 
set of principles to rely on. . 

(3) What are its benefits to you? 

The bill of rights would make students more aware of their 
rights. University officials would be less inclined to misuse their 
power, and students would be more prepared to assert their rights 
if they were aggrieved. At present, most grievances occur because 
others don’t know that students have rights or think that students 
won’t pursue grievances. 

(4) What are the disadvantages? 

carrying out their duties. This is undesirable because the main 
objective of a university is to advance and disseminate knowledge. 
Unnecessary assertion of rights and frittering over small details 
may impede that goal. 

(5) What are the obstacles? 

It’s difficult to ascertain the bill’s effects on existing 
regulations. It could have a wide effect, like the American 
Constitution, which invalidates any law not conforming to it. Orit 
could have very little effect, like the Canadian Bill of Rights, which 
is only a declaration of good will and intention. 

(6) What is the real issue? : 

university officials can be trusted to exercise their power properly. 
The study, if carried out thoroughly, should tell us whether they 
are worth trusting, not only during the time of peace and 
tranquility, when everyone is sane and accomodating, but also in 
times of turmoil, when the system is put to a real test.

~ Boycott boycotts 

Violence and oppression cannot be tolerated. The 
Soviet invasion of Afghanistan cannot be watched with only 
frowns and murmured threats. However, a response to the 
invasion should not include an Olympic boycott. Unfor- 
tunately, Joe Clark has been prompted by a faltering 
campaign to make an Olympic boycott proposal that could: 
be more damaging than constructive. 

The fact that a boycott would be a reflex echotoU.S. 
threats is bad enough. More importantly though, Clark and 
many others have forgotten the Olympics are not just games. 
The Olympics is the last major event uniting all countries in’ 
non-violent endeavor. The Olympics were the one event able 
to create friendly international exchange of ideas for the 
improvement of mental and physical health. 

Of course the games have become commercial and 

- often seem to represent a corporate Olympics. Still one 

point remains clear. That is, the Olympics exist to find the 

world’s fastest, and strongest, athletes. No single nation has 
been able to steal the game’s significance and place it on its 
own doorstep. 

‘Of course countries have tried to boost a false sense of 
superiority with the Olympic’s prestige. For example Nazi 
Germany in 1936 tried but could not steal the Olympic’s 
blind love for the best. Hitler’s blue-eyed Aryans did not 
sweep the games. Instead a black man, Jesse Owens, became 

the hero, and his German competitors were the first to 

congratulate him. Hitler’s schemes were ruined and his . 

refusal to congratulate Owens exposed him as the leader of a 
_ sick philosophy. Unfortunately, the truths made clear at the 
Olympics are not apparent enough today. Simply, the 
Olympics show that, under the timer, no race is superior of 
body or mind. We are of the same collection of cells, hopes, 
and dreams. 
What a mistake to forget that participation in the 
games is a nation’s acknowledgement to living in a world 
community that does have inflexible barriers. Certainly 
walls exist, but the means of breaching them should remain 
intact. Individual freedom is not a guarantee in the East of 
the West. Still, as long as any form of meeting occurs, even if 
only at four year intervals, there is hope for communication. 
Where there is communication negotiation can occur and 
perhaps peaceful change. 
To ignore the game’s diplomatic opportunity is to 
ignore a possibility of peaceful change. Quite simply, the 
Olympic team is a diplomatic mission and a refusal to send 
~ the Canadian is a refusal to send our diplomats. Does Clark, 
with his impressive foreign affairs record, realise cutting 
- diplomatic ties is often a prelude to war? Does he realise at 
the-least a boycott will represent a slavish aligment with a 
frustrated and often irrational US reputation? 
Perhaps that is what he intends. It may be he, and 
others who wish a boycott, would prefer non-negotiation 
and risk gldbal violence. Perhaps the hint or possibility of 
violence is a spice to take an electorate’s mind off economic 
_ problems. 
In any case if Canada decides to drop out of the games 
not only a diplomatic opportunity is lost. Canada will lose a 
reputation as a reasonable and friendly land. Instead 
Canada could appear like a Hitler who didn’t like the way 
- the game was played. Global tensions must be dealtwith. An 
Olympic boycott seems an easy way to pressure the USSR. 
- However, a boycott is clearly more destructive than any of 
‘the dubious good it might possibly achieve.

Last minute slate assembly 

I wish to comment on this 
Friday’s election when some of 
us, at least, will elect next year’s 
executive committee, and Board 
of Governors representative. 

The two slates of candidates ' 

running this year are 
characterized, as usual, chiefly 
by the haphazard way in which 
they were assembled..I do not 
intend to criticize the individuals 
involved for what is almost the 
traditional method of procuring 
candidates, but rather to suggest 
that it would be'a mistake to 
suppose that a slate is composed 
of equally competent individuals 
or that they will necéssarily be 
able to function as a unified 
body if elected. 

The fact of the matter is 
that, over the last several years at 
any rate, slates have been 
selected largely at the last minute 
using as candidates almost any 
person who could be persuaded 
to run (for those with long 
memories, no, I do not exclude 

An examination of the 
Throrkelson Slate’s campaign 
literature leads me to the follow- 
ing observations. : Firstly, most 
of the candidates seem to lack 
relevant experience. Not one of 
them, for instance, is a coun- 
cillor. Some have sat on a few 
Students’ Union boards.or GFC 
committees, to be sure, but that 
is no. great distinction, par- 
ticularly in. view of the 
vacuousness of most of their 
other qualifications. As for their 
base of support, it seems to rely 
far too heavily upon Lister Hall 
and the Faculty of Commerce. 

Secondly, is the overall 
impression of their platform. 
They have a few worthwile ideas, 
it is true. However, many of their 
most interesting proposals, such 
as a differential price structure 
favouring students at SU outlets, 
a charity fund, and _ in- 
stitutionalizing the Long-Range 
Planning Committee, are all 
being worked on by this year’s 
executive. Many of their other 
proposals have a marked 50s 
flavour. Their platformindicates

I disagree strongly with the | 

Gateway editorial of January 29

iversity Night is an attempt to 
show the government that its 
interests and those of students 

‘can be the same. 

The editorial also suggests 
that public dissent will be more 
successful than ‘wining and 
dining’ in dealings with the 
government. No evidence is 
advanced to support this and the 
only examples of public dissent 
suggested are protest marches, 
mass demonstrations, and a 
public meeting that would, like 

other such meetings, attract very 

few students. 

Finally, the editorial 
suggests that Students’ Council 
has lost the support of many 
students through its lacklustre 
approach to governmental 
relations. Students’ Council has 
lost the support of many students 
by attempting to represent 
students on issues that students 

do not see as being within its

to me that they perceive the SU 
as a glorified Glee Club. Any 
attention they pay to significant 
political or administrative issues 
is obscured amidst trivialities. 
As for the Astley State, they 
demonstrate some of the same 
organizational weaknesses. 
However, as candidates, their 
individual qualifications largely 
exceed those of their opponents. 
Their platform seems to me to be 
less fanciful as well. They at least 
indicate that regaining control of 
SUB (of which we can now use 
about one third) is a priority 
with them. They also promise 
some action on the question of 
fee structures, access to educa- 
tion, and funding cutbacks, 
issues which appear to be entire- 
ly ignored by the Thorkelson 
_Slate. With these considerations 
in mind, I would urge support 

for the Astley Slate, with the- 

following exceptions. 

It is a pity that the existence 
of the slate system as it has 
evolved over recent years, tends 
to obscure the independent 
candidates. This year there are 
two particularly good indepen- 
dants - Darrel Rankin, running 
for vp academic, and Mary Ann 
Gillies, for Board of Governors. 
The qualifications of these per- 
sons far exceed those of .their 
opponents on either slate. These 
positions seem to have been 
somewhat neglected, in fact. 
This is unfortunate, for both are 
of great importance. 

Mr. Rankin has been very 
active in the Arts Students 
Association for several years, 

doing much the same sort of 
work as would be required of 
him if elected. [know him to bea 
very hard worker, and have high 
expectations of him. The posi- 
tion he seeks is by no means less 
important that other executive 
committee positions. The vp 
academic’ is in a position to 
influence the. entire academic 
environment on campus and 
should be chosen with care. 

Ms. Gillies is a member of 
the Faculty of Arts executive 
committee. She also served on 
the Dean of Arts Selection 
Committee. As such, she has 
direct experience at the higher 
levels of university administra- 
tion which will stand her in good 
stead. as a Board of Governors 
member. This is far more than 
her opponents can say. I am 
confident that what they 
promise in the way of represen- 
ting students, bringing the B of G 
home to us, as it were, and 
bringing our interests home to 
them, she can deliver. 

I hope I have demonstrated 
by claim, that electing a full slate 
is no guarantee of electing six 
competent individuals, or for 
that manner, six who can-work 
together at all. Those who wish 
to confirm my remarks may 
easily do so by examining the 
campaign ‘literature, applying 
the salt as needed. 

There is no choice but to 
vote for those best qualified for 
the position they seek, and to do 
so on an individual basis.

SU services for us 

- For those of you who 
missed Halley’s Comet, the 
Grand opening of the all new 
Brick Warehouse, and Billy 
Beer, another miracle is in the 
making. The good old U of A 
Student’s Union is changing. 

* It started with the dividing 
of the record store into SU 
Records and’‘SU Tapes, and, we, 
the students, are swallowed by 
the price increase led by Pharoh 
Olmstead. Next we have new 
management for the theatre (and 
do not confuse new management 
for new movies). You can (for the 
same price as in prior years) 
catch such contemporary hits as 
“The Apartment,” “Gidget goes 
to RATT,” and “Lassie: The 
Iranian Wolfhound: Go Home.” 
Not to mention such rockers (in 
the concert series) as Sarah 
Vaugn, Dale Harney and the 
Magic Men, Bobby Curtola, and 
I understand they are negotiating 
a five figure deal with Sonny 

~Bono. | can’t wait. 

Next we have the table 
service at RATT, which is good 
for two reasons; 1) no one can 
possibly drink as service is’ 
impossible; 2) the waiters look so 
miserable and confused, we all 
feel that our own lives can’t be as 
bad as we thought. 

Moving down the list, we 
have music in Friday’s. Enjoy 
breakfast (?) to the mellow 
sounds of the Pointed sticks, the 
Stranglers, and AC/DC. While 
in the evening when you're ready 
to. rock, we have the Mills 
Brothers and Iranian folk music 
(soon to be discontinued). One 
other thing, if you want a captive 
audience, have the music so you 
can’t ever turn it off. Holy 1984, 

Further improvements are: 
the waiters and waitresses in 
Friday’s and RATT will be 
forbidden to wear T-shirts under 
pain of death. What this has to 
do with improvement I will never 
know, but I understand a fashion 
coordinator is being sought for 


So watch for — further 
changes in the SU that you will 
enjoy (or else!). It is unfortunate 
thatnothing canbe done about 
the price of. albums, the concerts 
or movies .we are forced -tc 
endure, or SU policy at all. 

It has just been confirmec 
that the Moms and Dads will 
alternate with Gaby Haas for the 
entire year of 1980 in Dinwoodie 
Are you ready to Rock? 

So, sit back, enjoy another 
cup of Friday’s delicious coffee 
and have another South African 
beer and be sure that all is well 
with your Students’ Union. By 
the way, a fund has been started 
so that some SU employees can 
pay their Christmas bills as all! 
part-time and casual workers are 
laid off for two weeks over 
Christmas and New Year’s. You 
see, our wise and_ beneficial 
Students’ Union think that those 
workers don’t deserve Christmes 
pay. Thanks Dean.

Commerce IV - 

Election analysis ». 

Students’ Union elections, 

as all students are aware, are. 

becoming increasingly boring, 
repetitive, and ridiculous as the 
“years go by. There is virtually 
no student concern -for the 
organization, and little is being 
done to provoke interest. The 
last five years or so have seen 
elections contested mainly by 
candidates with little or no 
policy, with political platforms 
of any substance being provid- 
“ed by “outsider” contestants, 
such as the Young Socialists, 
other unsuccessful _ parties. 
Front-running candidates con- 
struct a miniature political 
machine that promotes false 
personalities and meticulously 
avoids positions and substan- 
tial political stands. 

Usually, each year is a bit 
worse than the last, and this 
year’s election scenery is, true 
to form, somewhat less in- 
teresting than last year’s, when 
the Olmstead slate was swept in 
on a wave of apathy. 

Before examining _ this 
year’s contestants’ platforms, 
the nature of. slate-building 
should be discussed. Election 
hopefuls usually try to con- 
struct a slate that represents as 
broad a cross-section of cam- 
pus groups as possible, which is 
legitimate and understandable. 
But this predictable tactic has 
become a U of A cliche, as it’s 
now considered imperative that 
a commerce student run for vp 
finance, a residence student be 
found to attract the res group, a 
fraternity member.of associate 
be rounded up, and so on. The 
capabilities of a person are 
secondary to the votes he or she 
can bring in. 

So in the frantic days 
DeLOres the, closes cot 
nominations, organizers run 
around trying to find the 
always-reluctant candidates. 
People are urged, persuaded, 
coaxed and cajoled into run- 
ning, often at the last minute. 
Significantly, few candidates 
on this kind of slate decide to 
run on their own because they 
have concerns that are impor- 
tant or grievances with the way 
things operate. They run 
because their arms are twisted, 
and magically, a “team” 

Of course, it would be 
political suicide for a slate to 
admit that it is composed of 
three or four last-minute 
choices, as that would cast a 
dark shadow on their team 
spirit image. But, last week 
when interviewing presidential 
candidate Nolan Astley, I 

Gordon Turtle 

independents, and | 

asked him why he was running. 
His answer: “because I was 
asked to run.” 

However, as the campaign 
develops, I’m sure Astley will 
be chastised for his “wrong” 
answers by his faceless cam- 
paign organizers, and, by the 
end of the week, his answer to 
that question will be something 
like, “I’m concerned about the 
direction the Students’ Union is 
taking, and I think my ex- 
perience will enable me to act 
capably in office.” 

Ah, yes, the experience 
factor! A look at the Astley 
reveals that for them, ex- 
perience is what is important. 
Two of the pamphlet’s four 
pages are taken up with a listing 
of each candidate’s ad- 
ministrative experiences. Let’s 
take a closer look at the 
relevance of this experience. 

As news director of CJSR, 
Astley has interviewed Pete 
Lougheed, Horsman, Notley 
and various U of A officials. 
How scintillating, Nolan, but 
what does that have to do with 
being a good president? Are we 
to assume that having convers- 
ed with these important people 
that you will have a better 
chance of negotiating with 
them as president? Nolan also 
notes that he is an advisor to a 
local Lutheran Youth Group. 
Admirable, but hardly signifi- 
cant to the campaign. 

Kris Farkas and Jan Byer, 
two of the Astley slate can- 
didates both possess a lot of 
relevant experience, so why did 
they pad their mini-bios with 
such garbage as “committee 
member for the promotion of 
the Agriculture . Faculty to

Schools” (Byer) and “Member 
of- Arusha Cross-Cultural 
Center” (Farkas)? 

Karen Stephanson tells 

_ Voters that she is involved in the 

Chaplaincy Organization and 
is a coordinator of Knox-Met 
United Church Youth 
well as a member of the Inter- 
Varsity Christian Fellowship. 
Big deal. This may be an appeal 
to Christian voters, but the 
tactic is cheap and its effect 
minimal. Anyone who relates 
this experience to capability for 
the SU executive has never 
spent an hour in or near the 
executive offices. 

One scant page of the 
Astley pamphlet is devoted to 
policy and it successfully 
matches the innocuous 
irrelevance of the pamphlet’s 
inside pages. Platitudes abound 
as Astley and his mates promise 
everything except a cure to all 
known diseases. They'appeal to 
students’ cupidity, (not a totally 
unwise tactic), and outline such 
pie-in-the-sky plans such as 
“leadership in the fight against 
inadequate funding”, “improve 
communications between the 
Students’ Union executive and 

. the student body”, and a “Push 

for awards for high academic 
achievement”. I let the reader 
draw his or her own con- 
clusions: the pamphlet is suf- 
ficient comment. 

But if Astley’s platform is 
virtually ridiculous, then the 
Scott Thorkelson Slate’s policy 
is outright insulting. I’m sure 
that the brains of the slate must 
have been watching a Happy 
Days rerun when they wrote the 
pamphlet, and it’s truly disap- 
pointing to see statements like

and return to a policy of ex- 
cessive federal deficits and low 
energy prices, which he blamed 
for inflation and high interest 

A lower budget deficit to 
reduce foreign indebtedness, an 
expansionary monetary policy to 
avoid unemployment and _ in- 
were sound economic 
moves that the Conservative 
government had made, he said. 

_ Scarfe also said Canadians 
aren't adjusting to economic 
realities and are consuming far 
too much oil. If prices don’t go 
up now, he said, we’re going to 
have to adjust “far too quickly” 
in the future. 

Professor Shaffer said “a 

regime of economic planning” is 
the only way out of the “world 
economic crisis” we are now in. 

Fred Engelmann, of the 
political science department 
appeared less worried about the 
floomy economic forecasts than 
the question. of political 
leadership in the future. 

He predicted that the NDP 
will hold the balance of power in 
the upcoming election and they 
will side with the Liberals. 

Engelmann said Crosbie’s 
budget was hypocritical because 
he asked Canadians to “tighten 
their belts four notches” with 
higher energy prices and then 
“loosen them two notches” with 
the mortgage interest plan.

tunately, Ron Snyder, indepen-

excluded from the interviews. 
We apologize to Mr. Synder for

Snyder (Independent): It would 
be ‘misleading to say there are 
three major issues or anything 
like that. There are so many 
issues that are intertwined that 
one affects the other. For in- 
stance, cutbacks affect tuition 
increases, which affect capital 
expenditures — you see what I 
mean? When you deal with one, 
you deal with the other. I don’t

Election analysis from page 5 

“The Thorkelson Team will 

bring the University together”, 

“One should take pride in being 
a student at this institution”, 
and promises like the slate “will 
revive the Golden Key 
Honorary Society” and will 
also “revive the Evergreen and 
Gold Yearbook”. Such tripe 
has never before filled an 
election pamphlet. Whether a 
student takes pride in his 
university is hardly the concern 
of the Students’ Union, and no 
executive will ever foster that 
pride. Awards nights, honorary 
societies, yearbooks and the 
like please the high school 
crowd, but priorities like this 
for a multi-million dollar 
operation are totally outside 
the bounds of reason. 

The pamphlet goes on to 
outline plans for celebrating 
Alberta’s anniversary, and the 
team sees nothing wrong with 
taking a chunk of the funds 
available to throw a party and 
to construct a parking complex 
near the Jubilee Auditorium. 
The immaturity and _ total 
stupidity of these promises are 
overwhelming: Thorkelson

“Fabian socialism”, as 
typified by Pierre Trudeau, is “a

the tenth one was free education

ed enthusiastically with shouts of 

“Right!” and loud applause. 

Butler drew links between 
the Fabian Socialist-dominated

which Trudeau attended, and 
Conservative finance minister 
John Crosbie.

To. their credit, the slate 
avoids the long list of “ex- 
perience”, but they don’t use 
this space to make meaningful 
political or election statements, 
such as on the cutbacks issue. 

Nonetheless, one of these 
slates will win the election, or 
some combination of slate 
members and independents will 
constitute next ‘year’s ex- 

With little to distinguish 
between then, these two slates 
will “fight it out” at tomorrow’s 
SUB Theatre forum on the 
important issues they have 
outlined. Do you think you'll 
be able to make a meaningful 
decision on which slate to 
support based on their cam- 
paigning? Do you care? I expect 
the answer would be “no” to 
‘both questions. 

These two slates make 
student politics a farce. I don’t

sort of way, but merely in the

demands for election candidates. 
These included an immediate 10 
per cent cut in federal taxation, 
reintroduction of capital punish- 
ment, rescinding of gun control 
and metrication legislation, 
quota system of immigration, 
and a stop to the compulsory 
bilingualism program. 

“Our children are worth

Scott Thorkelson 

The theme of the 
Thorkelson team campaign is to 
bring students together. We will 
increase the presence and identi- 
ty of the student on and off 
campus through a good year- 

book, an honorary society and 
with the 

improved relations 

The Thorkelson team will 
refine and improve accessibility 
to Students’ Union Services. We 
will try to communicate with 
students as much as possible and 
have an open door policy. 

In addition, the team will 
- continue to represent students to 
the government and strongly 
express our concerns about the 
quality of education. We will 
focus in on the administration to 
make sure that money is 
allocated responsibly and that 
academic concerns are at the. 
forefront of any interaction with

The Students’ Union has a 
very definite role to play in the 
University community end in 
society as a whole. It must 
provide services to its members 
and leadership to students on 
issues concerning them. In the 
past executives have often over- 
emphasized one or the other of 
these areas. The current ex- 
ecutive for example has tended 
to stress internal concerns to the 
detriment of those external..The 
Astley slate will strive to ac¥Eve 
a balance between the internal 
and external areas. This process 
will lead us into many new areas 
and approaches. 

We will provide leadership 
in the ongoing debate with the 
provincial government over in- 
creasing tuition: fees, accessibili- 
ty and inadequate funding. In 
addition however we will work to 
improve the general administra- 
tion of the students- union 
especially in the area of club 
grants. We will look towards the 
establishment of long-term 
financial plans for the Students’ 
Union so that projects ae 
implemented on a_ scheduléd 
basis. We will also work on an 
out-reach program for new 
international students. 

The Astley slate is ex- 
perienced and will provide the 
balanced open leadership that is 
needed in the Students’ Union ... 
because you matter.

3) work on all issues as an

As the Vice-President

proposals for Board action. 
Specifically, we plan to: 

1) press for the creation of a 
general U of A scholarship and

"Something funny about those guys 

by Portia Priegert 

First there was CRAP. Then the 
Democrats tries to liberalize everything. 

Win or lose (mostly lose), joke

Some are in it for laughs, some out 
of frustration, and some claim they’re 
a serious ones, and everyone else is the 

But whatever the reason, joke slates 
have provided SU elections with some 
of their funniest moments and have 
attacked student apathy’at its source — 
students. (It’s rumored that law students 

_ turn out en masse to vote for joke slates, 

and that’s really saying something.) 
The origin of joke slates is shroud- 
ed in mystery. This reporter scanned 
back issues of the Gateway until 1936 
without discovering the germinal joke. 
SU_ election candidates took 
themselves pretty seriously in the 1930s, 
40s and 50s and even more seriously 
(though in a much different way) in the 

But for some strange reason the 
1970s spawned a lot of joke candidates. 

1975 heralded the appearance of 
the first presidential prankster. His 
name was Wayne Chase, but his game 
was anyone’s guess. 

In his Gateway election blurb he 
outlined past positions he had held 
including vertical, horizontal and obli- 
que. He had also served on the Com- 
mittee to Feed the Cats While Their 
Owners are on Vacation and the 
Subcommittee to Study the Activities of 
the Standing Committee appointed by 
the Ad Hoc Committee of the Original 

And his campaign promises were 
no more modest. They included printing 
and distributing $400,000,000 in twen- 
ties creating massage parlours in Fine 
Arts. His platform, he said, was “a 
wooden structure built chiefly of two 
by-fours. E 

“Capability. Reliability. 
Accessibility. Personality. ‘In other 
words, CRAP.” 

But the Conceptual Reality Alter- 
native Party (CRAP) had other things 
going for them in their 1977 campaign. 

Led by Napoleon look-alike Rene 
Le Larke, they.gave the victorious 
Spark slate a run for their money. 

Milfred Campbell, candidate for vp 
academic, who had boasted that his 
intake of beer could exceed 48 ounces 
per hour, rallied within 11 votes of his 
“serious” opponent. 

But, heck, winning isn’t everything. 
And for the joke candidates it’s next to

candidates to shame.

everyone, even to those who have no 
interest in learning, placing HUB onend 
and heating it with hot air from the 
political science department and im-

Guerilla Warfare. 

The Liberal Democrats didn’t win, 
but they did make a strong first-ballot 
showing at most polling stations. 


No joke candidates are running in 
this week’s Students’ Union election, 
though attempts were made to pull a 
slate together. 

That’s unfortunate because joke 
candidates, unlike many of their 
“serious” opponents, serve a valuable 

Not only do they promote student 
interest in the election, but by satarizing 
the election and the candidates, they 
increase awareness of their weaknesses.

It’s only the Emperor’s new clothes 

Movie review by Gord Turtle 

Eraserhead 1s tor eraserheads. 

Directed by David Lynch, Eraserhead is the latest 
craze, a “cult film” shot in black and white that 
pretends to study alienation in post-industrial society. 
Some have called it a sleeper; I call it a yawner. 

The Journal film reviewer John Dodd, in the 
biggest piece of garbage to appear in that paper for 
years, (excepting Olive Elliot’s column), reviewed the 
film and found it intense, horrifying, brilliant, and 
provocative. While a bit of suspense was accidentally 
worked into this most egotistic movie, I cannot for the 
‘life of me discern where anything approaching 
intelligence came near the creation of the film.” 

Simply put, Eraserhead is the emperor’s newest 
set of clothes. Dodd describes it as the personal vision 
of the director, and the film is indeed the product of 
one person’s imagination. But that does not make it 

- worth seeing: everyone has visions, but it takes some 

importance to make the vision worthwhile to others. 
Eraserhead has little importance and absolutely 
nothing to say. 

If I want vision, I’ll stay home on Good Friday 
and watch The Robe on TV. I don’t want whining and 

artsy, anti-art filler from a director who includes the 
grossest and most grotesque images he can conjure up 
in his film, as did Lynch. It’s a dreadful mistake to 
confuse the grotesque with the meaningful, and the 
ugly people and decrepit beings in Eraserhead are as 
gratuitous as the blood in Dirty Harry, and equally 
relevant to the film. 

The movie makes little sense. Henry Spencer, 
ostensibly a social outcast because of his appearance 
and introverted personality, finds he is forced to marry 
his girlfriend because she has given birth to what could 
be a child. The marriage fails because the wife cannot 

cope with raising a child in Henry’s one-room 

apartment, and Henry is left holding the bag. 

. The term bag aptly describes their offspring. It 
resembles a calf. with no arms or legs, with its 
torso wrapped in bandages. It also seems to have an 
adult consciousness, as evidenced in the scene where’ 
the baby laughingly mocks Henry after his un- 
successful attempt to seduce his attractive neighbor. 
His latigh is the most normal thing in the movie: any 
frat member has heard the same laugh ona Sunday 
morning after an “unsuccessful” Saturday night. 

Throughout the movie, Spencer embarks on 

mental journeys through his radiator (yes, his 
radiator), where he encounters a strange music hall 
singer, loses his head, and has his brain made into top 
quality erasers. 

Now of course, the truly perceptive viewer will see 

-all of this as caustic satire and bitter social comment, 

while the doughhead conventional wimps like myself 
will dismiss the film immediately. And it is here the 
problem begins. 

How much longer will eraserheads like Lynch 
continue to make films like this and expect serious: 
response? How many people like John Dodd will 
swallow it whole, and assume it’s art? If a work of art is 
so elitist that it only reaches a small handful of viewers, 
then it’s virtually meaningless. 

I’m not saying that Eraserhead is so intelligent that 
its meaning will go over audiences’ heads. The movie is 
a vacuous, pretentious collage of ugliness, possessing 
absolutely no intellectual or artistic virtue. It’s trendy, 
and its appeal is directed at sophomoric arts students 

‘who spend their spare time redesigning their beards 

(thanks Lol and Kevin for that one). 
I hope all others will see it for what it is, and 
quickly erase it from their minds. 

This poet sounds like just another mouth 

Book review by Candy Fertile ; 

George Bowering does not, as the back cover of 
Another Mouth says, address “the events of everyday 
life with a sensibility ‘so razor-sharp and fiercely 
imaginative that the mundane is rendered marvellous.” 
The mundane remains the mundane and calling some 
of the (poems?) mundane is rather generous. 

Consider a poem that consists of the line “J see the 
light in my eyes” repeated nine times followed by “see 
blue.” Or the poem “Mais Le Rien Perce”: “Come over 
here/atomic holocaust/I want to/stick it in you/.... 
./Ah, yes] that feels so good/do it again/like that, 
funnyface.” Or: “A bouquet of peckers for you my 
dear./ What you say?/I say smell that, ain’t they got/a 
lovely bouquet?/ What you say dear I can’t hear you 
something/about love?/ Yeah honey, here’s some 

There are some glimmers of ability in the two long 
poems of the collection. “Old Standards” is about lost 
and found love; “Poundmaker” allows the speaker to 
worry about Indians. These two poems are interesting 
because there is more to grasp than in the shorter 
poems but they are ultimately unrewarding ex- 

-periences. Both are confusing and the forms give the 
reader no help in his reading. The problems of the short 
poems are compounded in the longer ones. Conception 
and execution are blurred beyond comprehension. 

‘Between the two long poems are a group of poems 
about different places. The two poems about Germany 
contrast the effects of war. Bomb shelters and bullet 
holes co-exist with factories and fancy cars. “Nearing 
Britain” looks almost like prose and is a series of 
impressions on approaching England from France. 

‘he short poem “Passport Doves” is perhaps the 
best of all the collection. The speaker finds pigeons all 
over Europe and comments on how boundaries mean 
nothing to them. 5 

Grisman has no trouble w 

Concert review by Allan Luyckfassel 
David Grisman and his Quintet performed to a 
sold out audience at SUB Theatre last Thursday night. 
His music was like a cool breeze on a hot, summer day 
and it’s hard to think that anyone could not have 
enjoyed the new and refreshing sounds of the “Dawg.” 
‘Grisman, the leader and main composer of the 
- Quintet, was the emcee for the evening, introducing the 
songs and group members with a charming, sly sense of 
humor. And he did play his mandolin, delighting an’ 
audience who were equally delighted at the virtuosity 
of his colleagues. : 
It was nice to see a band perform without ego 
problems. Each member had his chance to solo and 
' when not soloing was busy comping behind the others. 
Two long standing members of the group Todd 
Phillips on bass, and Tony Rice on guitar, were not 
present, but their places have been amply filled by Rob 
Wasserman and Mark .O’Connor (a-young musician 
extremely gifted on flatpick guitar and fiddle). 
Filling out the Quintet and providing an excellent 
foil for Grisman, was Mike Marshall on- second 
mandolin and fiddle. The fifth member of the group was 
fiddler Darol Anger who proved his merit in a fiddle 
duet with Mark O’Connor that spanned several forms 
of music. The empathy between the musicians was 
amazing: they obviously enjoyed each other’s playing. 
Grisman and band mainly played compositions: 
from the last two Grisman albums. Each member 
showed off their own compositions, and a delightful 
‘surprise was Rob Wasserman’s variation of Eddie 
Harris’s “Freedom Jazz Dance” which he called 
“Freedom Bass Dance.” 
David Grisman’s music defies categorization so he 

There are eight poems about different places in 
Canada and different feelings about what it is to be a 
Canadian. Calgary is criticized and disliked while 
Toronto is criticised and loved.-It is again difficult to 
see any coherence in these poems. 

The rest of the poems are on various topics and in 
different styles. “A Poem for High School 
Anthologies” considers the importance of poetry 
versus the silliness or futility of trying to teach it. The 
poem’s speaker questions the meaning and placement 
of words. “Now you may ask yourself, what / does that 
symbolize, & as a matter of fact/ why does the author 
say what/at the end of the line.” If only Bowering had 

combined form and content so well in the rest of the 

poems. we

Alberta mime to appear in SUB 

SUB Theatre will be presenting two evenings of 
Alberta Mime, February 7 & 8 at 8:00 p.m. Mime 
Light, and the Arete Mime Troupe will be enacting the 
ancient art of telling silent stories through gestures, 
movements, masks and music. 

The Arete Mime Troupe formed four years ago in 
Calgary; is a highly versatile trio; Randy Birch, Kevin 
McKendrick, and Don Spino. By combining ideas 
from mask, acrobatics, magic, juggling, vaudeville, 
clown and traditional pantomime, the audience is 
treated to a high-quality performance that is both an 
entertaining and understandable art form. 

Mime-Light, a company of two — Marlane 
Herklotz and Kenneth Noster — is based here in 
Edmonton. Classics, folk-tales and original situation 
comedies presented via use of mask, classic mime and 
humorous original interpretation has won Mime-Light 

the admiration of a wide audience, rangingfrom highly ~ 

discerning critics to school children. 
Tickets for the performances are $5 for one show

classical and much more. Recently he has been playing 
with violinist Stephane Grappelli and his music is very 
close in sound and spirit to the original, innovative and 
influential Stephane Grappelli/Django’ Rheinhardt 
jazz group. The music is so catchy and melodic and 

swings with such ferocity that it belies the technical 

prowess and complex interplay that is going on

«Photo Exhibit in SUB : _ & wk ote; 

This month the Students’ Union Art Gallery is pleased to display a : 

a collection of photographs from two very different Canadian 
photographers: Mattie Gunterman and Brian Wood. 

Mattie Gunterman was one of the many pioneers who helped 
settle the rugged interior of British Columbia during the 1890’s. Her 
experience was partially recorded in her historical and sometimes 
personal. photographs. Gunterman’s collection provides the viewer 
with a rare and emotional insight into Canada’s colorful past. 

On the other end of the spectrum stands Brian Wood, a native- 
born Canadian artist now working in New York. Originally a painter 
from Saskatchewan, Wood has applied his cubist style to his newly 
acquired medium of photography. Not only has Wood found 
imagery in the ordinary scenes around him but has reshaped it into a 
creative and imaginative framework. , Wee ee “gE eaornmm eso

U of A leaves BC in bubbles 

by Karl Wilberg

_tated UBC swim squad by a 

narrow 144-141 margin. Coach 
John Hogg was pleased with the 
upset and in particular men- 
tioned. good swims from Brant 
DeBrisay. The womens team lost 
142-125 to UBC, but still 
managed “steady performances” 
according to: Hogg. 

Although the U of A’s 
strength lies in long distance 
events, DeBrisay picked up firsts 
in the 200m and 400m freestyle. 
In fact DeBrisay set anewclub 
record for the 200 with a 1:45.4 

Hogg states the “U ‘of A 
excelled in distance events” and 
mentions Dwight Manning and 

Other Alberta swimmers 
did. well, Dave Long placed 
second in the 200 butterfly and 
the 200m freestyle. D. Cathro 

also placed second in the 
breastroke and the 50m 

The womens team swam 
well too and Hogg states many 
put in best personal perfor- 
mances. He adds UBC is known 
for a strong team and 
emphasizes the U of A “obvious- 
ly had strong opposition.” 

As usual Sandy Slavin 
swam well winning the 800m 
freestyle, the 400m IM and the 
200m _ backstroke. Hogg adds 
the“girls narrowly missed in the 
retay events, but~ were not 

outclassed.” The U of A women

Bruce Lecky placed first and . 

second respectively, in the 
1600m freestyle. However, the U

by winning the 200m relay and 
the 400IM relay. The U of A men’ 
also won the 800m relay that 
proved to be the meet’s deter- 
mining race. Hogg point out 
that before the 800 the U oi A’s

The abuse some balls take. 

When the Victoria 
CWUAA volleyball tournament 
was over last weekend, Hugh 
Hoyle’s and Brian Watson’s 

Bears were still in the same place. 

The Bears went into the meet 
tied, in the standings, with UBC. 
However, the Bear’s third place 
in Victoria failed to change their 

Hoyles was not too’ sur- 
prised with the results and points 
out the team’s problems have not 
changed much either. Hoyles 
credits the second place UBC 
squad with being “a good tall 
club” and says UBC’s 3-0 win 
over the Bears evens the two 
teams in tournament play this 
season. ‘ 

Before their defeat the 
Bears swept Friday’s series by 
defeating the U of Lethbridge, 
and the U of Calgary. Saturday 
the U of Victoria was their next 
and final victim. 

The Bears’ winning streak 
ended with the next two 
matches, the first against the T- 
Birds and the second with the 
Huskies. Hoyles believes UBC 
knew “they were in a situation 
where they beat us, to 
hold second place. Conse- 
quently,“their backs were up 
against the” wall and the BC 
squad * “got to us in a basic area”. 

- The basic area was serve 
reception, and Hoyles adds “our 

serve reception went for a walk”. 
In turn, the Bears were forced to 
a high outside type of game that 
prevents a quick attack relied on 
by the Alberta club. 

The Bears lost the match 3-0 
and proceeded to play the UofS 
where their serve reception 
problems reappeared. Again the 
Bears were forced high outside 
and could not run a quick attack. 

Still the league leading 
Huskie’s margin of victory was 
small, usually four points. In 
addition, according to Hoyles, 
the Bear’s Curt Blair played his 
best tournament and lead the 

squad in hitting, stuff blocks, and 
serve reception. Blair a third 
year man maintained a kill 
average of 57% 

y The next CIAU meet is in 
Calgary and will, Hoyles 
believes, be a fight for the league 
first. place. This year the con- 
ference winner and runner-up 
will go to the national finals in 
Saskatoon, but Hoyles is con- 
vinced second place will not-be 
enough for any team. 

Before a February 22 and 23 
CWUAA Calgary meet the 
Bears will

Bink Bomk Bonk 

by Dick Hancock 

“The gang that couldn’t 
shoot straight.” 

It used to apply to the other 
hockey team in town. However, 
since the Oilers have come 
around, the bug appears to have 
found a home with the Golden 
Bears hockey squad. 

The Bears dropped a home 
game to the Saskatchewan 
Huskies on Sunday afternoon by 
a 5-3 score even though the Bears 
had the edge in both plays and 
shots and could have wrapped it 
up after forty minutes. 

For the second Sunday ina 
row the Bears puck luck was all 
bad as they hit numerous 
goalposts and missed open net 
shots. Last weekend they had six 
posts in a narrow 2-1 loss to 
UBC while this Sunday three 
blasts hit metal. 

Bears’ coach Bill Moores 
summed up the situation by 

Senyk to tie the game at 3-3. 
Just fifteen seconds later, 
rookie Brad Schneider banged in 
a rebound and _ then captain 
Larry Riggin scored an_in- 
surance marker as he drilled a 
screened point shot past Senyk 
at the 14:19 mark. Danny Ardnt 

rounded out the scoring with a 

pair of goals, the second into an 
empty net with just 23 seconds to 

Huskies coach Dave King 
said, “It was building.” in 
reference to the three quick 
goals. “The roof fell in at that 
point although I didn’t think we 
controlled enough of the game to 
deserve to win anyway.” 

Moores said that the play of 
Schneider was one of the key 
points of the victory. “It’s very 
tough for a player, especially a 
rookie, to move to a strange 
position (from center to right 

wing) and play well.” 

All around the entire team 
played a solid game right from 
goaltender. Ted Poplawski on 

Saskatchewan got goals 
from Desjardins, Allison and 
Hlynysky. On Sunday the Bears’ 
scorers were Terry Sydoryk, 

ha peg o,oud 

Terry Lescisin and Joel Elliotts 
while Hlynysky (with two) Hud- * 

son, Desjardins and Bradshaw 
tallied for the Huskies. 


The Bears were missing the 
services of Ace Brimacombe on 
Sunday as he dislocated a finger 
in the Saturday game. He suited 
up but didn’t see any action. 

Next action for the Bears is 
this weekend in Calgary. The 
two game series may go a long 

saying, “ You only get so many 
chances to score and if you miss 
them it’s only a matter of time 
before the other team 
capitalizes.” He said, “The loss 
would have been easier to take if 
we hadn’t played so well.” 

It was not all bad news for 
the Bears on the weekend however 
as their 6-3 victory Saturday 
afternoon combined with 
Calgary’s split in their games- 
against UBC kept the Green and 
Gold in a tie for the first place 
with the Dinosaurs. 

In Saturday’s. game the 
Bears were trailing 3-2 after forty 
minutes but a three goal out- 
burst in a span of 37 seconds 
gave them the edge they needed 
to win. 

The individual star for the 
Bears on Saturday was veteran 
defenseman Bruce Rolin. As 
well as playing a strong game in 
the Bears’ end of the rink he also 
scored a pair of goals to lead 
them offensively. 

Rolin’s second goal of the 
game at 13:42 of the third period 
started the Bears sudden out- 
burst. He drove around: the 
Huskies’ defense and lifted a 
backhand over - sprawling 
Saskatchewan goaltender Doug
