Vote 

coming on 
photo I.D. 


If students want a photo on 
their library cards, they're going 
to have to pay for it The AMS is 
conducting an informal survey 
to test student reaction to this 
year's photo-less library cards, 
and indications are that 
students would be willing to pay 
$1 to have pictures returned to 
the cards. 

The cut in photos was 
decided by a joint committee of 
Athletics, AMS, Library and 
Administration officials. "It 
costs around $6000 a year to 
have the photos put on the 
library cards," says AMS 
president Dave Connell, "And 
with the budget cutbacks in 
various departments, the AMS 
was going to have to carry the 
whole cost itself." 

Librarian Dean Halliwell says 
the library doesn't need the 
photo on the card. "We haven't 
used the photo on the card for 
years. We don't care if you laon 
your card to someone else, as 
long as you take responsibility 
for the books borrowed on it. As 
far as we're concerned, it's 
immeasurably cheaper not to 
have the photo on the card." 

Connell says he has received a 
number of complaints from 
students who say the library 
card was their only form of 
photo I D. Many students who 
have no driver's licence or credit 
cards have found the photo a 
useful form of identification. 

SUB Pub manager Brian 
Peterson says that students will 
still have to produce some form 
of photo identification to get 
into the pub. "We have to see 


some photo ID.' your driver's 
license or something, unless 
you're obviously of age," he 
said, "We. can't tell from a 
student's card with no photo 
how old you are." 

The Athletics department will 
also be asking for some photo 
identification for students 
wishing to check out equip¬ 
ment. "The photos were a great 
convenience both for the users 
and for us," says DaveTitterton, 
who handles building security 
for the Athletics department, 
"The photos formed an im¬ 
portant part of our control when 
checking out equipment. We 
could lose expensive equipment 
unless we have some proper 
identification. We'll be asking 
for some form of picture I.D." 

Titterton also pointed out the 
difficulty in providing student 
rates to performances at the 
University Centre when student 
cards have no photos. 

Connell says he will be 
looking at the possibility of 
having renewable student cards 
in the future, where students 
would use the same card each 
year, with a renewable sticker 
attached each year. "The only 
real cost involved would be for 
first year students, or people 
coming to UVic for the first 
time," he said. 

The AMS will be holding a 
referendum in October on 
charging students one dollar to 
have the photos returned to the 
library cards. A referendum 
would need ten percent of the 
student population in order to 
pass. 



On-campus 
condos open 


The new 300-bed Cordon 
Head residence opened on 
Monday though workmen are 
still landscaping around the 
building. K 

Official opening of the 
residence takes place on 
September 8 when Senator Ray 
Perrault will unveil the 
building's plaque. 

Gavin Quiney of Housing 
Services says the three-wing 
complex will offer several 
special features including 
smoke detectors, individual 


thermostats, phone jacks and 
special washroom facilities for 
the handicapped. 

"Students will have the option 
of requesting the type of at¬ 
mosphere they want," Quiney 
said, "One wing will be mainly 
an academic hall with a 24-hour 
quiet period from Sunday to 
Thursday. The other wings will 
feature an academic/social 
balance." The Gordon Head 
residence also offers an apar¬ 
tment-style controlled entrance. 

All the rooms in the new 
residence are single ac¬ 


commodation and the central 
four-storey wing houses men 
and women, on separate floors. 

Costs for a full session is 
$1634 for a single room and 
$1491 for a double room, in¬ 
cluding meals. 

The 300-bed residence brings 
total residence accommodation 
to 900, all of which are filled 
according to Shirley Baker, 
manager of Housing Services. 

Residences now house 13 
percent of the undergrad 
students at UVic, an increase 
from 8 percent last year. 


Bus fares rise quietly 


Bus fares rose to 50 cents a 
ride on Tuesday with hardly a 
murmer of protest. People 
either paid the 50 cent fare or 
paid 35 cents and left a 
promissary note for the rest, 
upon the condition that B.C. 
Hydro open its books to the 
public. 

Some people did neither. "I 


put in 35 cents and expected to 
have to argue with the driver for 
the rest," said one student, "but 
he only took the money and 
gave me a ride." 

Many people are looking into 
alternative means of tran¬ 
sportation, with bikes being the 
most popular. "With gas prices 
so high, and bus fares increased. 


I have no choice, I have to ride 
my bike," said one student. 

The attitude of everyone 
seems to be to "wait and see". 
The Amalgamated Transit Union 
is not pressuring people to pay, 
and will not hold up service in 
order to contact Hydro officials 
to make someone pay the in¬ 
creased fare. 

The bus fare increase has not 


affected the sales of student bus 
passes however. Sales opened 
on September 5 with about 70 
passes sold. Prices for the passes 
this year have risen sharply to 
$115 from $75 for a full year 
pass, and from $40 to $59 for a 
term pass. This year's passes are 
being issued with a warning: 
don't lose it. Costs for replacing 
a lost pass can be as high as 


$62.50 if lost within the first 
week of classes. 

Bus passes will be on sale 
until September 15 in the Clubs 
Room of the Student Union 
Building, from 10 a m. to 1:30 
pm. and from 2:00 til 6:00 p.m. 
Passes can be applied for in the 
morning and picked up in the 
afternoon.

Enrolment up for early registration 


More than half the student 
population of UVic registered 
early this year, taking advantage 
of a wider course selection and 
shorter lineups during July and 
August. 

The final figure- for early 
registration this summer was' 
3983 students, 240 more than 
early registration last year. Fifty- 
five percent of the projected 
total enrolment registered 
during the summer. 

Administrative Registrar 
Gordon Smiley estimates that 
between 80 and 100 more 
students will enrol at UVic this 
year, raising this year's overall 
enrolment to about 7100 
students. This would mean an 
increase over the national 
average enrolment which, 
according to Statistics Canada, 
is down to about 1400 students 
this year. Smiley sees the in¬ 
crease in enrolment being due, 
in part, to a widespread 
promotion campaign of UVic 
this year to high schools and 
counsellors around the 
province. 

"One area we noticed the 
largest increase in was the year 
one students," Smiley said, "It's 
hard to predict, though, it may 
only mean that more people are 
using early registration." 

Early registration has been in 
operation for three years and 
Smiley says that the number of 
students enroling during the 
summer is gradually increasing. 
"Students are starting to get the 


idea that there is a better course 
selection during early 
registration," Smiley said, 
"Also, it leaves them with an 
extra week of work in Sep¬ 
tember." 

The University of British 
Columbia does all its 
registration work in September, 
but Simon Fraser operates a 
similar registration to UVic's 
where students sign up ahead of 
time for their courses. UVic has 
looked at computerizing the 
registration process, but ac¬ 
cording to Smiley, it's a long 
way down the line. "If we had 
the money, we'd be glad to do 


it," Smiley said. A limited 
amount of registration is done 
by mail, mainly for off-campus 
courses. "Mail registration is 
really a problem of system 
support," Smiley explained, "A 
student might write in with 
course selection but the sec¬ 
tions might be full or restricted. 
By the time we write back with 
other course suggestions, those 
might be filled as well. The 
system we have now seems to 
work out fairly smoothly." 

Patty Beatty-Guenter worked 
during registration as an 
orientation worker and said that 
about twenty students a day 


came to her with problems and 
complaints. "The most common 
problem was that students 
couldn't understand the 
timetable. They didn't un¬ 
derstand that Y01 meant a 
course section that wept for a 
whole year, or they were 
confused over first and second 
term courses," she said. "There 
was quite a push during the last 
week of early registration. 
Students didn't realize that 
registering early doesn't 
necessarily mean you're going 
to get in all your courses. Some 
of the sections were filled 
quickly or closed for September 


registration.'' 

Beatty-Guenter added that 
many senior level students 
forgot their authorization to re¬ 
register, or in some cases, had 
forgotten to apply for re¬ 
registration. "First year students 
were very conscientious," she 
said, "They didn't understand 
the operation, so they kept all 
their forms together." 
Registration by proxy was in¬ 
troduced for the first time this 
year and worked well, she said, 
"It really helped a lot of 
students to have someone else 
register for them. It was a step 
forward for registration. 


Budget slashed for energy 


Building and Grounds of¬ 
ficials want to cut their elec¬ 
tricity budget by $60,000 this * 
year. In order to do so, they are 
promoting an energy con¬ 
servation campaign this fall to 
make people aware of "cost 
avoidance" factors in energy 
usage. Included in the cam¬ 
paign is an energy conservation 
poster contest with $800 in prize 
money. 

"Energy waste is mainly an 
attitudinal problem," says Jim 
Flelme, Director of Building and 
Grounds, "We want to change 


attitudes, not lifestyles. There's 
so much to be gained by using 
the resource wisely." 

Building and Grounds are 
asking people to turn off lights, 
typewriters and equipment 
when they're not needed. 
"We're looking at the 
elimination of waste in energy," 
says Helme, "It's a 'quick fix' 
savings, but the results are 
surprising." 

The university has considered 
alternate energy sources such as 
solar energy in the past, but 
according to Helme, the cost is 


prohibitive. "We looked at solar 
heating for the McKinnon pool, 
but the pay out period was just 
too long." 

Some structural con¬ 
siderations include double 
paning on new buildings such as 
the Gordon Head residence. 
This provides greater insulation 
and cuts down on heating costs. 
Students in residences are also 
encouraged to use cold-water 
washes in the machines and to 
cut down on the use of lights. 

• Costs for fuel and electricity 
have increased sharply from 


$300,000 in 1974 to well over 
$600,000 in 1977. 

The poster contest begins on 
October 2 with a theme of 
soliciting user participation in 
promoting energy conservation. 
The finished work should be on 
a 22" by 28" poster board and 
will be judged on originality and 
on success in communicating 
the poster theme. No 
professional artists are eligible 
but the contest is open to 
students, faculty and staff. 
Entrants may submit more than 
one poster. 


Guidebook 


gets 

another year 


The AMS has authorized 
another academic guidebook to 
be prepared for next year, based 
on the success of this year's 
guidebook, AMS president Dave 
Connell announced last week. 

"Next year's guidebook will 
have a different set of questions 
for Science courses than for Arts 
courses, as well as ac¬ 
commodations for team-taught 
courses." Connell said, "This 
year's guidebook had some 
organizational problems based 
on lack of experience but we 
will be meeting with members 
of the Administration and the 
Psychology department to work 
out the kinks in the 
questionaire." 

The academic guidebook 
evaluates professors and courses 
of first and second year sub¬ 
jects, looking at areas such as 
teaching effectiveness, ability 
to communicate, value of 
course content and a professor's 
ability to communicate the 
topic. 


AMS Internal Vice-President 
Ian McAllister says he's 
dissatisfied with the present 
guidebook because it's difficult 
to read. These problems he says 
will be ironed out hopefully in 
the next guidebook. He would 
also like to see changes in the 
grading system in the 
guidebook. 

Academic Affairs Director 
( Ben Webb, who prepared the 
guidebook recommended that 
next year's guidebook include 
third and fourth year Arts and 
Science, Fine Arts, Education 
and Human and Social 
Development course offerings. 
Connell disagrees. "Unless we 
can come up with a be + .c?r 
method of organization, we'll 
have to stick with first and 
second year courses," he says, 
"The amount of time and work 
involved in compiling the 
results would just take too 
long." 

Work on the 1978/79 
guidebook will begin in mid- 


October, Connell says, so that 
students in first term can 
evaluate their professors by the 
end of November. 

Not all departments par¬ 
ticipated in the evaluation. The 
faculty of Education conducts 
its own evaluation and most 
Education students are 
restricted to required courses in 
first year. 

In addition to the fifteen 
evaluation questions in the 
Guidebook, students were asked 
to submit any extra comments 
they might wish to make. These 
are not in the Academic 
Guidebook but are available 
from the Academic Affairs 
Director. 

Some of the more con¬ 
troversial comments. "Old 
Chem profs never die, they just 
fail to react!" 

"Better study some human 
physiology to find out why the 
nerves to your mouth often 
backfire and speech is jum¬ 
bled."

Some people 
won't quit. 

Some people just won't quit. 

A first year student named Dave Jones came into the Martlet 
office last week. He had been through early registration and tried to 
register in Computing Science and other courses he thought might 
be worthwhile. It was a long, hard struggle to fit his labs with his 
classes and still leave enough time to have lunch and get home at a 
reasonable hour in the evening. He wasn't particularly pleased with 
early registration and how it was handled. It wasn't a personal gripe, 
he was prepared to settle for his timetable the way it was, but he 
didn't like the system of early registration, with classes, courses, 
and sections filling and reopening and closing quickly and 
haphazardly. 

He wasn't satisfied, and with his interest in math and computing 
science, tried to do something about it. He brought in about a 
dozen sheets of paper full of carefully drawn diagrams, color-coded 
and neatly footnoted with explanatory graphs and arrows. He 
brought it in for information, to show that perhaps there was a 
better way of handling registration. His attitude was that if he was 
going to spend four years in this place he wanted it to run a little bit 
better when he left. He has taken his graphs and proposals over to 
the Administrative Registrar where Cled Thomas has been looking at 
it and wants to know more about it.

Preston Henley and Louise Hornby don't like chemicals being 
sprayed around campus. They noticed the spraying that was being 
done on campus this spring and summer and were worried about 
the danger to students and people in the area. They formed an ad 
hoc committee and took their concern to President Petch and to the 
Building and Grounds department. They received an explanatory 
letter but it didn't satisfy them. 

Although neither Preston nor Louise are Chemistry students, 
they've done their homework on toxic chemical spraying and its 
effect on people. They've done some research on alternative means 
of controlling pests and would like to see the university consider 
non : chemical pesticides. Louise is now working on forming a local 
chapter of Citizens Against Toxic Sprays (CATS), an organization in 
Oregon that has lobbied against chemical spraying. 


Taste is only to be educated by 
contemplation, not of the

you are grounded in these, you 
will have a standard for the rest, 
which you will know how to 
value, without overrating them.

Shutting 
off the 
chutes 

Editor: 

Landlords are shutting off 
tenants' use of garbage chutes in 
their buildings, using two ex¬ 
cuses to justify the action. One 
is that they have been ordered 
by fire safety authorities to 
install sprinkler systems in the 
chutes; as the cost of this is not 
likely to exceed $350.00, that 


excuse is paltry. The other 
excuse does not apply in the 
districts of Oak Bay, Saanich 
and Esquimalt, but does to some 
extent in the City of Victoria, for 
the environmental officer is 
ordering some landlords to stop 
burning garbage in their in¬ 
cinerators because they are 
polluting the air. That order 
does not stop the use of chutes, 
for there is no regulation 
preventing the landlord clearing 
them out and putting the 
garbage in cans for disposal. 

That refutes the landlords' 
excuses, so then what is the real 
reason the chutes are being 
closed. I maintain that it is 
because of the small cost for 
installation of fire safety 
equipment and the labour 
required to empty out the chute 
bins. 

Tenants now must pack their 
kitchen garbage down several 
flights of stairs and outside to 
garbage cans, which is most 
definitely a reduction in service, 
equalling a hidden rent raise. 
Therefore, the Rentalsman and 
the Rent Review Commission 
should order the landlords to 
restore the service P.D.Q. or 
make an immediate rent 
reduction of at least $20.00 per 
month. 

Landlords have an association 
which functions in their in¬ 
terests which in most cases are 
opposed to those of their 
tenants. There is only one way 
tenants will obtain a more 
justified deal in rents and 
service and that is to support 
organizations that will act in 
their interests. The Capital 
Region Tenants' Association 
requires more members in order 


to obtain the strength to act in 
tenants' interests and coor¬ 
dinate action by all sympathetic 
organizations. 

Small membership dues of a 
dollar or two will help con¬ 
siderably in our efforts. These 
and enquiries can be sent to the 
Capital Region Tenants' 
Association, P.O. Box 61, 
Victoria.

Waste 

watchers 

Editor. 

We want your help! Join the 
University of Victoria "Waste 
Watchers" in the Department of 
Buildings and Grounds. How 
can you help? 

You can help by eliminating 
waste in doing such things as 
turning off lights, typewriters 
and equipment when they are 
not needed. Also, you can help 
by possibly dressing more 
warmly, during the heating 
season, so that a space tem¬ 
perature of 20°C (68°F) can 
indeed be comfortable. In 
addition to these simple acts, 
you can help by bringing any 
ideas you may have on energy 
conservation to our attention. 
We are always willing to listen 
to new ideas. 

With your help we will 
succeed—without it we will fail. 

Sincerely, 

J.F.Helme, 

Director.

Heavy bookings for new auditorium 


Bookings for the new 1275 
seat auditorium in the 
University Centre are coming in 
quickly and University Centre 
manager Dave Titterton is 
pleased. 

The auditorium will be 
opened officially on September 
29 when the Music Department 
plays Beethoven's Ninth. 
Students are invited to a full 
dress rehearsal on September 
28th at a special price of $2.00. 


Students who are physically disabled and need 
assistance with library research, or students who 
have tirhe to spend reading aloud to the blind 
students or into tapes for use by blind students 
should contact AMS president Dave Connell. 

Services for handicapped students include 
braille labels on all doors, financial aid in¬ 
formation, maps showing all areas of UVic ac¬ 
cessible by wheelchair, reading assistance and 
library research assistance. Traffic and Security 
officials ask that students not leave their bicycles 
in places other than the bike racks because they 
create unexpected obstacles for blind students. 


The Women's Action Group will be meeting on 
September 11 in the SUB at noon. More than just 
a club, the WAG has consistently worked to 
improve the status of women socially, politically 
and economically. Where other groups have 
gradually dissolved through lack of interest or 
administrative apathy, the WAG has conintued 
working hard on women's issues. The group 
provides support on an individual and personal 
level as well. 

The WAG has been instrumental in lobbying for 
the Women's Studies course to be offered at UVic 
next year. The WAG has participated in Women's 
Day activities and this year will be hosting a series 
of noontime lectures. WAG will also be active at 
the sixth annual Status of Womens Conference to 
be held in Victoria in October. 

The WAG focuses activities at UVic but also 
works with provincial and national women's 
groups. Membership is mainly female, but men 
may join. Meetings are Mondays 12:30 - 1:20 
p.m., usually in the SUB, Room 144. Sit in on a 
discussion or ask about UVic courses which focus 
on women. 


Other bookings include Moe 
Koffman, an evening of Gilbert 
and Sullivan, the Prague String 
Quartet, Tom Waits and Leon 
Redbone in October, the Irish 
Rovers in November and 
Maureen Forrester and Carlos 
Montoya in the new year. 

In addition to the outside 
promotion companies, the AMS 
is sponsoring a number of 
concerts in the auditorium. 
Acting Activities Co-ordinator 
Lori Thicke has confirmed the 

Reports 


Tom Waits/Leon Redbone 
concert and is also looking at 
Steve Martin, Murray 
McLoughlin and Bruce Cock- 
burn. 


The auditorium is built on a 
semi-amphitheatre construction 
with the audience seated in a 
circular arrangement around the 
stage. Anyone interested in 
booking the auditorium should 
contact Dave Titterton at the 
University Centre.

Angst in Academia 

Recent moves to shift responsibility for the Academic Guidebook 
that rates professors and their courses out of the SUB and into t e 
Senate has support from at lease one member of faculty, Dr. 
Anthony Angst (BA (Calcutta) failed. . 

Dr. Angst feels nothing but remorse each time the topic of the 
Academic Guidebook is raised. It seems that his entry in the book 
noted him as being "godawful" in teaching Advanced Babycare in 
the Faculty of Fine Arts. Even a slightly corrected version tiad him 
teaching Sumerian Numerology for the Psychology Department. 

"You can't trust students with anything," he said vehemently last 
week, "not even their own essays." 

A spokesman for the AMS said that the student who headed the 
Guidebook program left town last week for Quebec, where it is 
alleged he is engaged in some dubious activity directly related to 
the political situation there. 

According to informed sources. Dr. Angst has always been 
somewhat of a minor irritant in student affairs. "He was here every 
day last summer," recalls a secretary, "wanting to know why the 
Guidebook hadn't come out yet." 

It seems that Dr. Angst was further aggravated by the fact that he 
had a bet going down at the Faculty Club regarding his rating in the 
Guidebook. "I even slipped that guy in charge a few bucks one 
night in the SUB". 

However it was the day the Guidebook came out that Dr. Angst 
really made his presence felt. 

"He called me a liar," said an AMS office staffer, "just because I 
assured him the booklet I gave him was the right one." 

"She was a liar," alleges Dr. Angst, even now. "The whole booklet 
is a fiction. God knows what those twerps did to the computer. Even 
now it doesn't work. It says I don't work here anymore. But I do. I 
have tenure." 

After assaulting several students Dr. Angst made his way down 
town to his lawyer and later phoned the AMS threatening to lay 
charges and sue them for libel (I don't know anything about 
babycare), defamation of character (my name is not Antsy, nor am I 
godawful) to the tune of $100,000 personal damages. 

Unfortunately his lawyer's name had just been struck from the bar 
and he couldn't find another lawyer before the discos opened. 

As for those reports about the AMS letting Senate handle the 
Professor/Course Evaluation because the AMS doesn't have access 
to enough volunteer workers, Dr. Angst couldn't agree more. He has 
even made an offer to do the whole thing himself. His privatf 
consulting firm has already tendered an offer of $120,000. A rating 
schedule has already been fixed. For $1000 a professor can get a

Need help with your tuition fees? Canadian 
University Students Overseas (CUSO) is spon¬ 
soring a raffle this month and first prize is $500 for 
non-students or your tuition fees paid for. Tickets 
are $1, available at the SUB General Office and 
the Housing Office from September 5-15. 

Each year CUSO sends students overseas to 
under-developed countries to teach, organize 
projects or help local people learn administrative 
and technical skills. This year CUSO is sponsoring 
an adult education project in Botswana. Funds 
from the raffle will go towards the Botswana 
project and will help many adults in the country 
to extend their education beyond primary school. 

Application for CUSO may be made at any time 
to Shirley Baker in Housing Services. UVic 
students have participated in several CUSO 
projects around the world, in Africa, the Pacific 
and in India. 

Up With People is coming to UVic on Sep¬ 
tember 13. Talking with their publicity people is 
like talking with Walt Disney—it's hard to say 
anything bad. They're full of enthusiasm, ex¬ 
citement and energy. They're a multi-national 
group of young people who sing and dance their 
way around the world, celebrating people. 

The casts for their crews come from all over the 
world. The show at UVic will be a modified 
version of their full performance which they'll be 
putting on around Victoria. During the per¬ 
formance at the Commons Block, Up With People 
people will be recruiting new cast members. 
They're looking for people with an interest in 
meeting others. No experience or particular talent 
is needed and an 11 month tour costs $4500. They 
travel all over the world after a short training 
period in Arizona. Looking for an alternative 
educational experience next year? Go up with 
people. 


Psychobabble belts 

A local psychological study team has just released a long awaited 
report that members hope will revolutionize the presentation of 
academic studies. 

"We use no big words," says spokesman Dr. Smith. "For too long 
psychology has locked itself into a padded cell and gabbled away to 
itself." 

The report, which was three and a half years in the making and 
two years late, attempts to relate the environmental and heriditary 
influences on the various strata of a modern western urban com¬ 
munity cross-sectional sample, taking into account religious, 
political and social education and experiene with special reference 
to sex, age, income, buying patterns, eating habits, purchasing 
power, voting trends, crime, death, sexual perversion, previous 
psychological trauma, birth defects, and traffic-related accidents to 
the use of seat belts. 

The group, one known as the Polysyllabic Vocabulary Elimination 
Committee, has restyled itself Shrinks against Big Words in an 
attempt to make psychology more appealing to the masses. 

"We chose the subject of seat-belts because it requires no big 
professional jargon. We want to show just how useful and up-to-the 
minute psychology can be," said Dr. Smith at a press conference to 
release the report. 

The group experienced a lot of problems preparing their first 
report. Other psychologists mocked them, they found it difficult to 
make presentations at psychological conferences and many had 
vocabulary relapses. "It's hard to go cold turkey, word-wise," Dr. 
Smith noted. 

Most of the problems were solved, however, when they hired a 
local journalist. "He just vacuumed off our vocabularies," expalined 
Dr. Smith. 

And just exactly what did the report have to say about seat-belts? 
It seems, say the psychologists, that most people who don't use seat 
belts are under-educated under-achievers who are dissatisfied with 
their work in the government, are rather un-intelligent, are middle- 
class, don't drive Fords and vote NDP. 

Just what affect the report will have on driving habits, we don't 
know yet. Whether it will revolutionize the evolution of academese 
is still up in the air. Meantime Shrinks Against Big Words is planning 
a media blitz, spearheaded by appearances on all the big talk 
shows. 

The report was funded by a local car dealer.

Reprinted from WIN 
magazine , an American civil 
rights publication. Michael 
McFadden is active with Free 
People's Transit , a nonviolent 
training group for bicycle ac¬ 
tivists. 

Why when nnr world is at the 
mercy of over 10 000 nuclear 
warheads, when our cities are 
strangled by poverty, corrup¬ 
tion, and pollution, when 
thousands of people are dying 
-of starvation every day, should 
we want to spend any of our 
energy promoting bicycles? 

That the answer is not self- 
evident is clear from the 
lukewarm reception bicycle 
activism has received in the 
American branch of the social 
change movement. I hope to 
show here that there is indeed 
good reason to spend our energy 
this way. 

THE PROBLEM 

Most of us realize in a 
peripheral sort of way that the 
automobile is the villain of the 


American transit scone. The 
following list of a dozen dirty 
facts and statistics \> yes how 
true that is 

THE DIRTY DOZEN 

1) The average recent year has 
seen 25 million auto accidents 
killing 50,000 people and in¬ 
juring five million more. U.S. 
government estimates indicate 
that up to 40% of the cars 
currently produced will cause 
someone injury or death. 

2) In just the last 50 years, 
more than three times as many 
Americans have been directly 
killed by the auto than have 
died in all the battles of all the 
wars we have ever fought. 

3) The automotive transit 
system accounts for 60% of the 
nation's air pollution (over 80% 
in some urban areas) and 91% 
of the carbon monoxide. 

4) General Motors, through its 
holding company National City 
Lines, ripped up 88% of electric 
streetcar systems during the 
period 1935-1955. 

5) While only two or three 
percent of the land area of our 
cities is given to parks, many

inefficient GM buses. Of 
course, to GM's great surprise 
the buses often did not work as 
well as planned and so many 
commuters bought GM cars. 
Poor GM. On top of the failure 
of its buses to adequately 
replace the hundred-odd 
electric railway lines it had torn 
up in 45 cities, GM had to face 
the indignity of going to court 
where it was slapped with a 
monumental fine of $5,000. Its 
treasurer, H.C. Grossman, a key 
actor in the "motorization" 
campaigns, was clobbered with 
a $1 fine. Poor Mr. Grossman. 

There is also evidence that 
GM has made deliberate efforts 
to keep our buses inefficient 
and substandard so people will 
buy cars. 

MYTHS 

Cars are the fastest, most 
efficient means of ground 
transit and they cut "distance". 

It has been said that George 
Washington made better time 
galloping around Philadelphia 
in 1776 than he could today if 
he drove. Given the speed of in¬ 
city traffic, that is probably 
true. A bicycle might well beat" 
out both horse and car with 
ease. In urban commuter races, 
the bicycle almost always beats 
the cars hands down. 

Over longer inter-city 
distances either bicycle or horse 
would undoubtedly lose to the 
car (unless our modern day 
Washington ran into a traffic 
jam, or out of gas, or jammed 
his transmission, etc.), but the 
car couldn't hope to compete 
with rail transit in either speed 
or efficiency. An individual 
going from New York to 
Washington DC by Metroliner 
would arrive in three hours as 
opposed to at least four if he or 
she drove. If the U S. had rail 
transit approaching the quality 
of that in Japan or some other 
countries, the trip could take 
well under two hours. 

As for efficiency, a half-full 
train would be 12 times as ef¬ 
ficient as the car both in fuel 
usage and passengers per hour 
transported along a given 
corridor, while producing only 
one four hundredth the carbon 
monoxide per passenger mile. 

Finally, people conceive of 
the car as lessening "distance". 
Actually, by developing what 
Ivan lllich calls a "radical 
monopoly" over transportation 
cars have increased distance. 


We are literally forced to 
consume transportation in 
larger and larger quanta; our 
society is increasingly struc¬ 
tured so that we have almost no 
choice but to perform that 
consumpion through the 
automobile. No longer can you 


and an obstacle to the smooth 
flow of traffic in our society. 
The merely temporarily earless, 
those whose cars are snowed-in 
or being repaired, are com¬ 
paratively lucky. In a few days 
when they (i.e. their pars) 
recover they can rejoin society,

fall as the attractiveness of 
driving there changes. New 
roads or parking facilities, in 
making driving more attractive, 
will ultimately increase the 
number of traffic jams, deaths, 
dangerously polluted days, etc. 
Conversely, by reducing high¬ 
way facilities, the number of 
cars will go down as more and 
more people decide to use mass 
transit, bicycle, or move closer 
to work. 

'he bicycle is a toy, not a 
■enous mode of transportation. 
a ’ . estimated that over 80% 'of 
'•^rsonal vehicle miles traveled 
in (. hina are traveled by bicycle. 
th< first of England's "new 
towns," Stevenage, has a 
P 'puk^ion of 72,(X)0 and was 
designer! with separate roads for 
bicycles and cars. In Tanzania 
there are piurd expand the 
capital city of Dodoma into a 
city of a half million by the year 
2000 with 75% of vehicle transit 
to be by bicycle in that year. 


Bicyc ~ n ly one fifth 

the energy of walking, and thus 
the bu ycie is me ost efficient 
moving v< hide (with the cyclist 
as the most efficient moving 
being) on earth. The bicycle, a 
classic example of intermediate 
and appropriate technology, is 
almost immune to planned 
obsolescence due to its sim¬ 
plicity and ease of manufacture, 
is easy to repair, can carry ten 
times its own weight, affords 
faster urban transit than the car, 
and is pollution free! 

A BETTER WAY 
It's easy to say that our 
present transportation base is 
far from ideal. But what would 
be ideal? What would a world 
with truly free transit look like? 

There would have to be vastly 
improved mass transit systems 
Mass transit must be able to

The automobile gives power 
and freedom to the individual . 
In actuality, the auto both 
disempowers and enslaves. On 
the economic level it enslaves 
through the enormous amount 
of wage-earning work that must 
be performed to buy and 
maintain it. An "auto junkie" 
can spend several hundred hour 
a year just paying for his or her 
"habit." On other levels the 
enslavement comes through the 
disempowerment. Without the 
car, the individual's powers of 
transport, or controlling his or 
her destination (destiny), of 
winning the loved one, become 
nil. The earless indivdual who 
doesn't drive , is an aberration

traffic and choose between 
Exxon and Shell rs of debatable 
value. 

The auto's increasing demand 
for new roads must be met. This 
is the myth that the auto in¬ 
dustry, city governments, and 
municipal engineers ram down 
the throats of citizens protesting 
new highways. They conjure up 
visions of greater and greater 
congestion on existing roads, 
mountains of pollution, and 
eternal traffic jams. But the 
fallacy is exposed by the ex¬ 
perience of places where 
existing roads have been closed. 

This phenomenon is called 
"attrition," i.e. the number of 
cars in an urban area rise and

The Society for Creative 
Anachronism was created in 
California about fifteen years 
ago. Though it began as a 
duelling society, members now 
also pursue such activities as 
heraldry, music, dancing, 
calligraphy, stitchery, feasing, 
revelling, and costuming. 
Members of the Society adopt 
one or more medieval personae, 
heavily researching some period 
between 450 to 1650 A.D. to 
add depth and verisimilitude to 
their invented characters. 
Costuming can be as simple or 
elaborate as one wishes. One 
members, for example, calls 
himself "Stoat Coyle", captain 
of the privateer "HM. Sargasso" 
in the 17th century. His in¬ 
vestment in his costume has 
come to $150. 

For the purposes of the 
Society, North America is 
considered the known world, 
and is divided into six 
kingdoms. The Kingdom of the 
west includes the whole Pacific 
Coast as far south as San Diego, 
the seat of the Kingdom of Caid. 
The West includes two prin¬ 
cipalities, the Principality of the 
Mists (northern California) and 
the Principality of Antir (from 
Oregon to Alaska). Victoria is 
designated the Shire of Seagirt, 
with about twenty active 
members. Twenty-five con¬ 
stitute a barony; a principality 


requires at least 100 
anachronists, and a kingdom 
200 . 

Outside North America, the 
Society has branches in 
Australia, France and Germany, 
and on an American battleship 
somewhere in the Pacific. In all, 
the members of the Society 
number between 1500 and 2000. 

The Society has revived the 
principle of status which 
operated in the Middle Ages. To 
be a knight, for example, one 
has to be credited with a 
background of medieval 
knowledge in matters like 
heraldry, music, etc., and one 
has to be chosen by the king on 
the recommendation of one's 
peers. To become a prince or 
king requires a victory in 
coronation tournaments, which 
are held seasonally. 

The structure of the Society 
includes an executive, con¬ 
sisting of a Seneschal (the boss), 
a Chancellor, a Master of 
Sciences, A Master of Arts, A 
Chatelaine, the Knights Martial, 
and the registrar. There are also 
guilds devoted to various ac¬ 
tivities, such as armory, stit¬ 
chery, music and dancing, and 
costuming. 

Of all the Society's activities, 
perhaps the most visible is 
medieval combat. At the Market 
Square Tourney held on August

19, participants wore hand¬ 
made chain mail, helmets, and 
hockey shin pads and gloves. 
They were required by the rules 
to react to blows as if the 
weapons were real. 

"If I get a shot in the leg that 
v would have disabled me, or cut 
my leg off with a sword. I'm 
considered disabled," said Bruce 
Schnieder (played by Stoat 
Coyle). "I fall down on my knees 
and continue fighting. Same 
thing with a 'killing' shot, a good 
solid blow to the head or the 
upper body. A mace in the hip 
will do me in right away, so I tall 
down 'dead'." 

One's choice of weapons in 
Society tourneys is restricted to 
rattan (bamboo) constructions, 
one to two inches thick and 
forty to sixty inches long. The 
rattan weapons are made to 
mimic various ancient in¬ 
struments of murder and 
mayhem in shape and weight, 
while being harmless enough to 
break without hurting anyone. 
Mock broadswords and rapiers 



are the most common weapons; 
morningstars, maces and clubs 
are rarely used. "We do 
everything we can to make 
things as safe as possible," says 
Dr. Peter Montgomery, the 
current Seneschal. 

One might expect the Society 
to be involved with jousting, but 
Dr. Montgomery says "The 
Society for Creative 
Anachronism doesn't allow 
jousting, because it's too 
dangerous, and too expensive 
also. But we're concerned, as in 
all fencing and duelling, that it 
should be safe, and the English 
Jousting Society has regularly 
one death a year." 

Capilano College holds a 
program called the "University 
of Ithra" which offers courses in 
embroidery, heraldry, food and 
all facets of medieval life. On 
the 20th or 21st of October, the 
Society will hold its annual 
Feast of the Apocalypse in 
expectation (once again) of the 
end of the world.

more dedicated anti-automobile 
activists but there are some 
fairly satisfying intermediate 
steps that can be taken before 
launching into a full-fledged 
attack on motordom. An 
example would be to push for 
the creation of selective "safe" 
streets in your community and 
throughout residential neigh¬ 
borhoods. "Safe" streets have 
traffic limited to a maximum 
speed of 15 mph, enforced by 
synchronized stop lights. Large 
signs should be posted 
prominently on these streets 
stating that pedestrians, 
children, pets and cyclists have 
the undisputed right of way. The 
safety emphasis will find ready 
listeners among parents and pet 
owners while restraint from 
seeking total auto ban saves us 
from alienating car owners on 
these streets. 

Each such "safe" street 
created serves multifold pur¬ 
poses. First, it makes it easier, 
safer and more attractive to 
walk or cycle by providing 
routes where there will be only a 
few slow-moving cars. Second it 
hinders car movements slightly, 
thereby contributing to auto 
attirtion. Finally, having a few 
such streets scattered around 
will lead to people on nearby 
streets agitating for the same 
privilege. What at first seemed 
to be a minor reform with 
negligible effects or threat to 
hard-core motorists could easily 
spread to the point where 
driving around in residential 
areas becomes as difficult and 
slow as driving downtown. It is 
at this point that wide segments 
of the public will be ready to 
consider abandoning their cars 
and utilizing the alternatives of 
waling, cycling, and mass 
transit.

Two for the show 


By Brian Jones 

Colosseum Two 


are Powell, as fine a hard rock 
drummer as you're ever likely to 
find, and Dio, the perfect vocal 
compliment to Powell's high 
energy pounding. Blackmore, 
whose ability as a guitarist 


shouldn't be overlooked, could 
do himself and the listener a 
favour if he would just let Deep 
Purple rest. 

Metallic meander ings> ? ? 
Come this way 


Colosseum Two, the logical 
nomencalture for the revamped 
and greatly improved 
Collosseum of original sixties 
derivation has now released a 
second LP. Colosseum Two's 
new venture, Wardance, follows 
close on the heels of the band's 
sizzling debut disc, Electric 
Warrior. In fact, so aptly does 
Wardance complement the tight 
workings of Electric Warrior, 
that it would require little effort 
at all to visualize the pair a$a 
dynamic two-record Set. 
Indeed, they go hand in hand. 

Colosseum's music is 
essentially a sticky hybrid of 
jazz-rock with a greater leaning 
towards the rock counterpart in 
so far as actual rhythm, yet 
maintaining the slick 
musicianship and quick-witted 
soloings so characteristic of 
jazz. Certainly at times the 
melodies borrow more than a 
slight resemblance to the high 
energy performances of Chick 
Corea and John McLaughlin but 
where these lads get tedious 
(and Lord knows they do) 
Colosseum struts on in 
progressive rock fashion giving 
the listener the break jazz fiends 
never could. 

These days good bands are so 
hard to come by that without a 


second listen you should be 
casting your vote with the likes 
of Colosseum Two and ousting 
the black devil scoffs of 
yesteryear. 

Blackmore 

The new Ritchie Blackmore 
LP presents little more than the 
expected. more metallic 
menace from the aforemen¬ 
tioned, Ronnie James Dio and 
power-drummer Cozy Powell. 
My failure to mention 
keyboardist David Stone and 
bassist Bob Daisey is no ac¬ 
cident. Both are highly ex¬ 
pendable under Blackmore's 
wing, and although they both 
fill the respective slots ad¬ 
equately enough, one never 
knows from one day to the next 
who will be the next victim of 
the Blackmore holocaust. The 
positions of Dio and Powell are 
protected by superstardom, but 
newcomers.. watch out! 

In an outfit as brutally 
cannibalistic as this the creative 
juices are greatly reduced. The 
material is loud and heavy 
(noisy) which one supposes 
immediately qualifies it as first 
rate hard rock, yet really 
amounts to little more than tried 
and tried again re-hashes of old 
Deep Purple standards. The 
majority of tracks are co-written 
by lead vocalist Dio and hen-

More Joy of Jogging 


The dictionary defines 
jogging (poorly)--as running at 
a slow trot. Such a bare bones 
description shows no ap¬ 
preciation of the phenomenal 
achievements of long distance 
madmen like Frank Shorter or 
Rick Trujillo, the psyche and 


psychology it takes to compete 
in the Boston Marathon, or the 
burgeoning public interest in 
this most philosophical of 
masochistic pursuits. Although 
perhaps not capable of 
delivering all the mystical 
benefits that the more starry- 


eyed proponents of jogging 
claim; the humble action of 
putting one foot in front of the 
other, whilst maintaining a 
respectable speed, is both 
simple and profound. 

The "North American" 
reasons for jogging —car¬

diovascular fitness, increased 
mental clarity, anxiety 
reduction, greater resistance to 
disease —are all quite ex¬ 
tensively documented and 
disseminated, from magazine 
articles to ads for the YMCA. 
Such proselytizing through guilt 
and fear is frequently suc¬ 
cessful; but, as sometimes 
happens with religion, the 
converts are persuaded on the 
grounds of a shallow self- 
interest. Unable to rise above 
their resentment at the effort 
and sheer physicalness required 
to receive this "divine grace" of 
health,"many beginning joggers 
are seldom happy. The 
exhilaration of drawing in huge 
lungfulls of air to power this 
loose-limbed body as it glides in 
a hypnotic, pleasureful rhythm; 
while the head, floating above 
yet still a part of this fantastical 
piece of machinery, is serene 
and deeply aware of its im¬ 
mediate surroundings; it is this 
interconnection — between 
jogger and environment and 
between mind and body—that 
is the high of jogging. It is 
because this feeling is a gift that 
we have a problem: it is either 
pursued selfishly as a natural 
high or else is enshrined as a 
"spiritual" experience by those 
who would transform jogging 
into an Eastern discipline. These 


attitudes cloud a simple precept 
at the heart of jogging: run for 
the joy of it. If you feel lucky 
just to be able to pitch your 
street shoes in the corner, put 
on sneakers and go out the 
door, appreciating your body 
and the place you're running in, 
then the high will come, un¬ 
solicited. Like all grand ob¬ 
sessions, it will prove to be meat 
for some and poison for others; 
but it certainly should be tried. 

Running is the simplest of 
sports —all you need are 
sneakers and shorts. (Expensive 
jogging suits and esoteric 
waffle-soled training shoes are 
nice but by no means 
necessary). Once outfitted, all 
you need is a place to run. 
Roads used by fewer cars, at 
residential speeds are the ob¬ 
vious choice. And Victoria has 
much to offer. Among the rural 
delights of Gordon Head, the 
restful and mannered en¬ 
vironment of the Uplands, or 
the sea-enhanced areas of 
Dallas Road or Ten Mile Point, 
is a range of routes that can 
satisfy any runner. 

Many people like to run by 
themse-lves, because of 
schedule requirements, 
peculiarities of temperament 
pace, or whatever, others jog 
with their friends and derive the 
pleasures of a shared enterprise.

7 September 1978 _ 

Whichever appeals to you, an 
important thing to remember is 
not to over do it at the begin¬ 
ning. 

After first determining your 
level of fitness, perhaps with the 
aid of a doctor, an appropriate 
and unstressful regimen should 
be established. As ambitions 
and aerobic levels increase, 
more demands may be made. 
(Joe Henderson's excellent "Jog, 
Run, Race" contains rational 
training scheds for over-fed 
business executives as well as 
serious marathoners.) Common 
sense and chats with more 
experienced joggers will ensure 
safe practices and continued 
good health; the reading of 
magazines such as "Runner's 
World" will give an enhanced 
appreciation of the scope and 
meaning of jogging. It is ex¬ 
citing to discover that Shorter 
runs 25 miles a day, or that 
people have raced 130 miles 


through Death Valley in the 
heat of August. 

Finally, jogging gives the 
basic pleasure of doiqg 
something. In our peculiar 
society, where many individuals 
have a diminishing impact on 
society, performing ambiguous 
paper-shuffling jobs with few 
immediate rewards for the 
labour invested, jogging does 
the valuable service of con¬ 
ferring on the practitioner the 
satisfactions of ac¬ 
complishment. Striding out into 
rain or sun; forcing your 
muscles to break down their 
ATP molecules to release 
energy; making the sweat roll 
down your face and soak your 
clothes; relishing a salty stinging 
in your eyes as you struggle up a 
hill. These become self-chosen 
acts, with a dear and immediate 
pay-off. There is pleasure to be 
had from jogging; it could also 
be one of the very few things 
you do in a day. 


BIKES ...from page 7 


Beyond the "safe" streets are 
streets without cars. Europe and 
Canada have seen a number of 
demonstrations by cyclists, 
sometimes numbering in the 
thousands, who have demanded 
bans on urban auto use. The last 
year or so has seen many ex¬ 
citing activities and developme 
ts. In Amsterdam 9,000 cyclists 
rallied to the slogan of 
"Amsterdam without cars" and 
blocked traffic throughout the 
city all afternoon. In Montreal 
400 cyclists illegally took their 
bikes on the subway (and 
subsequently showed up in 
court waving front wheels high 
to protest the dozen arrests), 
while in New York 1,000 stor¬ 
med the Queensborough Bridge 
(no arrests. A permanent bike 
lane was instituted the next 
day!) Perhaps the most 
promising recent development 
has been the formation of an 
International Bicycle and 
Transit Activists Network with 
regular meetings, coordinated 
intercity demonstrations, a 
clipping service and a 
newsletter. 

It is important to realize that 
the bicycle is unlikely to ever 
stand alone as the primary 


transit base in this country. The 
same may well be true for even 
sophisticated systems of public 
transit. However, the two 
modes taken together do stand a 
realistic hope of moving the 
automobile to a secondary 
position in our transportation 
complex. 

CONCLUSION 

Transportation is a gut 
issue —it affects everybody, 
everybody is concerned about it 
on a day-to-day level. In 
America, where living and 
working conditions are sub¬ 
standard for millions of people, 
where life is strangled by a 
gigantic military budget and 
threatened with the possibility 
of hundreds of nuclear power 
plants/the "transit movement" 
has understandably failed to 
attract mass support. Hopefully, 
however, presently apolitical 
commutors, cyclists and fume- 
choked pedestrians will come 
together to break free from the 
stranglehold of automotive 
society. Working in concert 
with other branches of the 
movement, bicycle and public 
transit acitivists can help us all 
bring about a world in which 
people are more important than 
profits.

If you ore planning to spend more 
than $799 on o component stereo system, 
moke sure it sounds better than this one! 



THAT'S A LOT OF MONEY. We know that $799 is a 
lot of money. And if you're going to spend that 
kind of money on a component stereo system, we 
wont you to get the most for it. 

One of the most important things a good dealer 
con do is help you find the system that represents 
the greatest value as a total system . And that 
means making sure the components are perfectly 
matched so that each operates at its optimum 
while complementing the other components. 

THE COMPONENTS. The components are recog¬ 
nized as some of the best brand names in the 
whole audio field. System $799 starts with the 
new Advent 1 loudspeaker. Never before have we 
been able to offer a complete system of this qual¬ 
ity in this price range. Because until now, we didn't 
have the Advent 1 . The Advent 1 is a smaller, less 
expensive version of the larger Advent, the most 
popular and most imitated speaker in North 
America. It uses the same woofer and tweeter but 
in a smaller cabinet. 



$799: Optimum 
performance for the price. 


The Advent 1 literally out performs speakers selling 
for many times the price. We matched the Advent 
1 s with the new Pioneer 5X-680 stereo receiver 
and the new Pioneer PL-514 automatic return turn¬ 
table. The Pioneer SX-680 hos-an excellent tuner 
section and pulls in as many FM stations—clearly 
and fuzz free—as the most expensive tuner we 
sell. It is powerful* and versatile enough to play no 
less than 6 program sources at any listening leveh 
you desire. 

The Pioneer PL-514 with the incredible GRADO 
FTE+ 1 cartridge is accurate, reliable and easy on 
your records. It will make your records last and lost. 
This is probably the best sounding $799 system 
ever assembled. If you spend more without hear¬ 
ing this combination first, you deserve everything 
you don't get. 

WE STAND BEHIND IT. Sound Hounds guarantees no 
service hassles. The Advent speakers are under full 
warranty for 5 years, the Pioneer receiver for 2 
years and the Pioneer turntable for 1 year. 


NO DOWN PAYMENT. Just $29.80 a 
month. Total Cash price including 
tax—$838.95, 1 payment of 
$24.70, 35 monthly payments of 
$29.80. Total interest charge (36 
months) $228.75. Annual interest 
rate 16.5% upon approval of 
credit. Charge* and Master Charge 
welcomed.
