   So you always thought The Ubyssey was a left-wing rag. Terry Yates
doesn’t think so, and Yates is chairman of the Progressive Conservative
party’s Canada Fund.
   Yates sent the paper’s editors a 1980 Sustaining Contributor card and an
enthusiastic letter.
   “Dear Progressive Conservative . . .” is only the beginning. “As one of
our best supporters, I’ve been able to count on you in the past to help the
Progressive Conservative Party in its time of need,” the letter states.
   “In fact,because of the unprecedented demand placed on our party, I’m
asking you to consider a contribution of nearly twice as much as you’ve
ever made before,” the letter continues.
   “That’s easy,” Ubyssey co-editor Tom Hawthorn said Wednesday.
“Twice nothing is still nothing.”
   And The Ubyssey is in good company. Another noted non-Conservative
to receive a Tory contribution kit was former Liberal cabinet minister Ron
Basford.
   Basford said Wednesday he did not know why he was picked as a poten-
tial Conservative supporter. “I presume they’re looking for money,” he
said.
   And Basford added he received a more impressive version of the Canada
Fund request. ‘‘I got an autographed portrait of Joe Clark.”
   The letter states on behalf of eager contributors: “Terry, you can count
on my support. I understand how important my sustaining contribution is
to the Party, especially in this crucial national election.”
   Hawthorn saidhe w l not send the Conservatives a contribution for their
                       il
campaign fund, but added he wiII keep the card anyway. “Maybe it will
